"So we're we're talking about elite level athletes in terms of rondor in terms of like drilling for more recreational athletes. Like i have personally that situation going on but there's other people that are just recreationally training you. How do you recommend they improve judo. Like if i wanted to compete a bunch and do reason reasonable with a particular set of throws say the split But sinaga so holly. How do the dory diese crash pad to get an reps. Stu like what you recommend. So i guess there's two recreational people that were talking about one is somebody who wants to learn judo and become good at judo but don't doesn't necessarily want compete just wants to get better and i think that there's not enough emphasis in this country on on just on paying attention to that type of student. Everybody pushes them to competition. But in reality there's a huge audience of people out there that would love to learn judo and be very proficient in judo and have the skills to go execute if they have needed it. And there's a class in there should be a program for that athlete and that athlete does not need to do randomly like the sport of judo is physical enough where you're picking somebody up all the time and moving their body weight around them at all the time. We can get very physically strong very physically fit. Technically you'll be better than somebody that does ran dory more than you because you're move if you learn good technique and you'll learn the movement and you learn the field and you move. Learn the timing. You'll actually be a better athlete than the person that just focuses on ran dory who does ugly technique in wins with force. So you know. We have a recreational class at our school where they do any rendering they have an option afterwards if they wanna stay for fifteen minutes or stay for thirty minutes where they can participate in mandatory but most of the adult students choose not to because they're already so tired from the other..

"What is the most beautiful. Throw in judo. Do you think what you now. It's the it's the one that seems to have the most amplitude that person goes the highest. Ucla leg swing through the middle The person doing the throw the leg swing through the middle of the other person definitely goes head over heels flat on their back It's probably the most dynamic pretty judo through there is okay so it's a single. You're standing on a single foot and you're raising your foot in the air and is the fourth throw which means the Your back is facing the opponent but They kind of both fly through the air and twist to their correct. Yes so how does that throw work. What are the principles behind that throw is one of those throws that You know people can kinda understand how to pick up another human being instead of trivial ways but each modern to me never quite made sense like why works. There's a there's a cork there's a twisting motion this some involvement of the hip. But not. it's not really a hip throw because the hip is not all the way over says not. It is very confusing throat. I'm trying to say something. Probably one of the most difficult throws to learn as well because it is so complex you do have to stand on one leg balance on one leg. Swing your other leg through the middle. Hold your opponent up in the air and is in. It's hard to. It's hard to make that contact with upper body to your to your back. You know if the turn your back on the throw as well so how does it work. it's definitely sort of a throw where you need to start pulling your opponents upper body toward you right so they're upper body starts coming toward you. Your legs go towards them as your body starts to go to into the throw so your head is gonna go left. Let's say your by your legs going to go to the right..

That especially you find beautiful like or powerful about technique His adaptability to the situations and understanding of like what needs to happen in order to throw these people. I specifically watched a match with his and i was going to do a breakdown video on it because it is. It's him versus Garvey of hungry Is he good gripping.

It's not like you could stand next to your friend who's one hundred eighty pounds and you could be one sixty and you guys can look identical. Yeah it is different. When both the ninety kilo hundred eighty-one one kilo both have six percent body fat. And they're cutting into the class and osas like there's more variety at ninety kilo because some of them are lincoln tall. Yep has become short in stock sake. It's like eighty one is more uniform. Which i but then the you know the flip side of that is the this is. Why like jujitsu again. Amateur competing against bigger guys. Like i love that more like ally cutting way just slim. Like that's why i feel the best one thing that you mentioned but like i love going against two hundred. Twenty that is injure jitsu. The weight doesn't get amplified in the sport. Like the way. Just the way right if you can if you can leg press to twenty and you can bench to twenty then. Yeah you can train with a guy who's twenty s that's easy. They're not going to hurt you. And i mean there's there is a truth that you know lightweights middleweights in jitsu in the same is true for. Judo is just like a lot more of them. That means if you wanna be is you're just competing at a higher level so like there's much more variety of games. The level is much higher. So you taken on a bigger challenge even if you're like Have a weight advantage so those are all decisions you have to kind of make and certainly jujitsu people that are way cutting are silly. I mean that's that's the natural beginner thing to do is to feel The way the nervousness ball competition expresses itself is through the desire to be as light as possible. Which is the totally wrong desire to have right like when you when you look at me now. I'm probably like.

It's like whoa. I mean it's the same probably as with you. If you're able to be introspective about it is he's just battling his own inner demons and working through those and is breaking up a break in his body. Doing so are you cognizant of the trade off of the fact that you know. You're damaging your body to get to these levels of achievement of this level of excellence of this level of greatness a mean i guess that depends on what you consider damage really cause. I don't really see that. I have damaged my body if anything i think strengthened. My body can go through more than yours can. Who's weaker right. It's just like it's just like the thai boxers right.

He needs to have his feet firmly planted on the ground with friction. Yeah otherwise he can't press intimate to stop it. So when i get him to sprawl back. When i split his legs he effectively loses that contact with the floor even those feeder on the floor. They're not in a position where he can drive from them. Yeah therefore when. I flipped he flips. So there's a there's a natural like flailing here so he's not falling forward year falling forward. Yeah he's just attached to you so like you can keep them up there and they're like legs would be just flailing get one of my one of my golden rules. When i'm training. And i get really tired. One of the mantras. I would always tell myself is. I'm gonna put my back on your chest. And then i'm gonna put my back on the floor because then you'll be underneath me is good principle. The very simple and it regardless of like all the chaos and how quickly things are happening. It's something i can just dumb everything down to and focus on regardless of the gripping situation the footwork all of that get my back to your chest and then put back on the floor so this step of getting your back to their chests Like for for people who are sort of more for example for people like me who are just like amateur. Judo people like there's all kinds of ways to prevent this turn from happening the grid and just everything. How difficult is it at the highest level to get into this position. I mean you make it. Look effortless often like to get the position where you're from facing them to your backs to them. Is that like strategies that timing. Is that timing timing.

That's part of the humbling process. I think of martial arts. Like i think everybody like a lot of people think they're much higher in the food chain and they really are and then when you realize this why. It's a really healthy process for people. They're not even competing in the olympics to practice martial arts because you realize okay that like putting yourself more accurately in the food chain is really good way to sort of place yourself in the rest of the world. It humbles you to the reality the harshness of the world. It's kind of like when people look at like survival in the wilderness. It's like us not that hard now. You'd probably dying a couple of days. Same thing with like judo martial arts like yet. It's really not that hard but you don't know what to do yet. And so when you find out that i don't know what to do. It's devastating to a lot of people but those that like stick through it and start to learn. It's very powerful like feeling that now like you can take care of yourself.

And then i think you will negatively affect the stress will negatively affect your longevity and all kinds of aspects of your life if you actually just learned to truly listen to your body become a scientist. Fewer body was sleep and food. It might end up that it will be eight hours a night or whatever but it might be something else and probably die ear. I remember when i was meeting with the usoc nutritionist. after london. it was probably around twenty fourteen. I think and when we had our team meeting at the beginning of the year and i was talking to him he was talking about the nutrition plans that he could put us on a timeout. I've done the usoc thing. I've done the couscous. I'd done the lemon in my water. I go for shit the the goose. Oh boy like just because there's like a cookie cutter plan right right right and i was like look. Here's what i want you to do. I out listen to you. But you're gonna walk into the seven eleven across the street from the assoc- and if you can't buy it in that seven eleven is not a muslim. I go because i go to places where the only thing i can. Or sprinkles and snickers bar I've done that like i've flown to eyserbos. John stayed in a hotel where the restaurant is closed. Usa judo hasn't paid for the meal plan. And the only thing that's availables the thing across the street so you were eating pringles before fighting a grand slam event while cutting twenty pounds in his. Ns thinkers yeah. I is a visual of that. That some like some rocky shit bill nutrition plant gopher because i'm not paying my own way to travel with fourteen days of food. I mean that's that's one of the magic of your whole career and also judo. I mean i'm sorry to say. Of course you want to be super rich and super well funded from an athlete perspective and sport to be popular and managed in ultra competent way but as reality but as a fan as fun to watch somebody like you who's exceptionally driven to suffer all these interesting. It's only suffering. If you expect the other side. I don't expect it. I accept it for what it is. Which is why. I write off nutrition for athletes because it can be done without it as long as you know to what you said before like you don't believe you need it. Some people believe they need it so the mind getting your mind. Right is the most important thing you know what i believe i need was the a snickers bar when i'm tired. I want a little bit of sugar. Makes me feel better. We'll see you could do. Yes i just love the visual of you. Eating is thinking but that became part of my nutrition plan when the usoc guy wrote my nutrition plan. I was eating a burrito bowl with brown rice white meat chicken black beans guacamole cheese chocolate chip cookies and diet. This is like a A local but same concepts concept because it through chocolate chip cookies. Because i needed the sugar i was. I was eighty eight kilos when i stepped on the scale at six point. Three percent body fat. Now i gotta make eighty one What really yeah. The usoc was like. Hey you know you can't you can't fight eighty one anymore. You have to fight ninety s. And i go.

"Judo martial art sport. I set of techniques ideas philosophies. Can we start by Maybe you giving a big picture. Overview of what is judo to somebody. Who's like outside the whole spectrum of wrapping sports yeah. Judo was originated in japan. That was used as a police tactic for self defense and you know subduing people. Crt of being able to throw somebody to the ground and hold in control the situation on.

"judo" Discussed on Rock N Roll Archaeology

"So bono wrote this song after traveling to south america learning about the punish a regime that was quote forcibly disappearing. Children aka killing them The group that bono had been associated with were the mothers of those children or the moderate supply demayo and they would typically take to the streets with pictures of their children and wail at the tops of their lungs for hours with pictures of their children And this is not the first time that i had heard of that organization. Apparently the two most vocal activists of the rock and roll eighties sting and bono had similar experiences with these organizations and were both moved to write songs about it. Sting wrote the song. They dance alone or quick a solo. That was released on his album. Nothing like the sun in nineteen eighty seven and this was song and they are both excellent moving pieces of work. It's no wonder they're not popular but they're important pieces of work on february fifth. Nineteen ninety eight you to actually played the An arena in buenos aires and. They brought the mothers of the disappeared as many of them as they could still find onstage With the pictures of their missing children And after performing the song. The women drape scarves around bono's neck the crowd saying the argentinian national anthem. And it was the first point it was. That was the first time the band had played the song in concert since nineteen eighty seven. Yikes yeah and again. I don't blame on this is this would be a hard song to play of course concert and get the crowd. You know really excited about it. Yeah you gotta play this real down song yeah. I think this is a great ending to this album to. It is kind of a downer song. But it's it's nice. I it's it's it's a good message to go out on. Its this positive. No not positive but it is a slow sort of burnouts. It tells a story exactly.

Best Positions for the Cowboy's Free Agents in 2021 Season Draft

"Let's talk Cowboys on today's episode. I was talking about free agency. And and this is now the time of year to be talking for you to see if we're not talking about Dak Prescott and let me ask you if you could only because it's the Cowboys here and we're not going to get greedy. If you could only sign one position in free agency. What position would that be? Before so we're assuming that co-signed here or do I have to yes. Yes. Okay. So if I'm if I'm kind of like sweeping generalities one position, it's probably a cornerback. That's that's where I'm going. And I think that's where there's the the largest amount of options especially with the fact that both Judo and Jordan Lewis are departing and free agency. I think that's where the most shallow at the moment. I don't think there's like a safety that that makes you know, it makes me want to make a bagel. You know what I mean right now, like there's not that guy in this year's free-agency. So I'd probably go corner. What's yours free safety because there is that Gap there's lots of those guys. There's good depth of pool at free safety here with I mean Marcus May and John Johnson Marcus Williams, I mean Justin Simmons is my guy but I don't sure first of all he's going to he's going to make money and second of all he's probably not going to leave the Broncos, but I think there's four or five guys right now. 24 to 27 years old high high level free safeties that are probably gonna hit the market and that's that's without. You know, some of these other guys have the market inevitably because of Captain D's because the Caps going down but I'm not Corner would be second for me. I just think if there's one position to splurge and it's free safety cuz I like Trevon Diggs. I liked the Cowboys going heavy draft capital a first round pick in the corner position. So I think you can invest in in corner line back or defensive line offensive line in in the draft one position. I'm prioritizing it for you to be fifty. But I also like I wouldn't be mad if it was Corner either. Yeah.

Lady Gaga's dog-walker shot and bulldogs stolen

"The Lady Gaga? Saga with I guess this robbery and her dog. Walker was shot and critically wounded. Her dogs have been taken. She's over or was in Italy. I didn't realize people were allowed to be in Italy. That sounds amazing, but she's put out a half million dollar reward to try to resolve this situation. The thing that struck me was a as a dog lover. The idea of someone stealing Roy is just Infuriating to me and heartbreaking. But I also couldn't get over how much of the reaction in the media and on social media? Involved people playing up the dog angle and sort of as an afterthought, saying, Oh, and by the way, the dog Walker was shot in the chest and is in the hospital is like, okay, that's As much as I love dogs. That's sort of the lead here, and the good news is that person is now in stable condition out of critical condition. That's excellent news. But I just wonder as Music lover, a dog lover and an opponent of people getting shot in the chest. How you're feeling about this story. So as a dog lover and a friend she owner My heart is right because we know that our dogs are our babies. They're part of our family and you know, and people who have kids and have got you know the love that you have for both, and You know how much you love your dog as part of your family, So my heart really, really broke for her. I had my dog stolen from Seattle back in the nineties that a new English bulldog And she was returned by the grace of God. Thankfully, and I hope the same thing happens for Lady gaga because my heart is, you know, it's like We all love our dogs. But I have a special fondness for Frenchies. And obviously she does, too. And I hope that her fans are just relentless. And you know, pursuit of the horrific people. I hope the two guys who did it are charged with attempted murder, which you know, just because You weren't successful doesn't mean you shouldn't have the exact same punishment as someone who committed murder The guy Ryan, her dog. Walker was bleeding to death on the sidewalk. The only reason he's alive because of quick thinking neighbor work to stop the bleeding while performing chest compressions all at the same time. And S O. That's how his life was saved. But you know, it's just the brutality. The coldness of just shooting someone in the chest and leading them for dead over to animals is awful. I hope this guy makes a full recovery and He's heroic because not only was he fighting these two guys who had a gun pointed at him, he literally put his life on the line. But then, when he was shot, he still hung on to the third dog. It's an incredible person. I mean, that is a truly self with person and I hope that I get my coat in the story. He might get a little bonus from Lady Gaga for his trouble. I mean, what an amazing So is it basically confirmed. Sounds like you have much more granular detail on this than I do is it confirmed that these robbers were specifically targeting the dogs? On purpose, like they showed up with the goal of stealing her dogs. And we're willing to apparently kill to get them is. Is that what we know? That's what it sounds like. You don't you don't know motive yet because they have not obviously apprehended that you guys, but I hope they do. I know the LAPD and FBI working Together on this, and it's scary for people just walking around a normal neighborhood and one of the neighbors said We all do this. We walk around the neighborhood with our dogs. Every night. It's it's not uncommon on you know, he said, Like the guy wasn't a braggart. He wouldn't advertise that he was Dog sitting for Lady Gaga. He was just, you know, obviously a super sweet and lovely person and man. I just I hope they catch those bastards and I hope that they rot in jail. Mean judo and let's make that happen. The other thing, I'll just the last thing I'll say on this is I am not a super fan of Lady Gaga. I think that she's very talented. I like some of her pop songs. I think she has Really impressive musical chops beyond just sort of the box that she puts out and she's demonstrated that many times she also strikes me for various reasons is someone that you do not want. To make your enemy. And these people now have a very powerful, very wealthy enemy that they have made, and I hope that they are made to pay. By the way I have to

"Today will hear the rest of robert decor is story. Robert his elder who grew up in the heart of chicago. We pick up where he left off shortly after he joined a game. So i had a friend and he said he's become an aristocrat and i thought oh nieces. Would you like to go with me. So i went with him and The accepted us. And i would become a gang member now during that time. You experience violence all growing up. I've been attacked with knives a number of times. One time somebody running at me and my friends running from me and had a knife news ready to plunge it in me and i jumped as high as i could get in the air. I mean high. And i kicked with all my katamon chest and the knife went flying and he just sat. There cursing me out than do anything. Well he was golden gloves news. Also a wrestler so a week later he challenged me and there we go again but during the gangs end up being forced into a fight. What happened is we're sitting on church steps all getting drunk and some guys Could you move down and stuff. Why i'm rapping to this girl. I said yeah. I moved down so the leader calls me over. Says what do you do. I mean the main wrapping twos girl. You're gonna take their tech wiping. He said madonna step. You don't take their. And i says well don't bother me. He says you either find him or you find me. Take your pick. I went over to him and i pushed him. He kicked me hit me. I went down. And i practice high not practice. Judo cry anything. My dad scientists say would go out because he's drinking a lot on the weekends he'd have billy club on he'd have brass snuck sam or he'd have a chain around his waist because in chicago somebody this walkup and hit you and so that happened and so fine. Lhasa hurt me inside. I'm going to hurt you. So i put him down and i thought of down here already hurt me. I'm going to hurt him. So i started stopping him. And i thought you're not going to get back up and so finally. The gang leader said timeout. He said get out of here within a month or two got into a gang war and During the gang war get shot a began in a dance club and there about Maybe forty of them and there was only maybe about eight of us. We were in an all ireland scandal lines three of our games together and that night our lines broke up and fight between one leader. Another person happened in the alley and later that night here comes about fifty of them so two volunteers said we're going to start to calling and we're going to go get the gun since so they went and got the guns. They didn't get back in time. There was only five of us. Young men there were two women and we're running five of us against and we get within a half a city block them and the gang leader on our side says breath the shotguns and we didn't have given with us they brought out there was boom. I feel myself getting sprayed. And when i heard that i was running so fast until my feet hit the ground i'd been running in mid air. I never could do that.

Russia moves to protect Putin from prosecution

Monocle 24: The Briefing

Russia moves to protect Putin from prosecution

"We start in russia. Where the duma has backed a bill which grants the country's rulers and their families immunity from criminal prosecution after they leave office and it has set tongues wagging about president putin's political future putin's allowed to stand for two more terms in office when his current stretch ends in twenty twenty four. But is there any need for him to do so if he can retire sooner without fear of prosecution or we're joined for more on this by the russia analyst and regular monocle twenty four contributor. Stephen deal welcome back to the briefing. Stephen always good to hear from you. Tell us it's funny if we if we look back. I don't know a quarter of a century almost now to the sort of an days a of yeltsin now was lots of talk about potential prosecutions and of course putin Gave him immunity as soon as he took over. Is that something Will be very much john on. Putin's mind as well right now. I'm sure his the yeltsin when he stepped down on the thirty first seven nine hundred ninety nine the one thing he'd been looking for in that second term since he's been president since the middle of ninety was someone who would guarantee him immunity from not only him in fact his his blood family and also his wider political family immunity from prosecution for the rest of their lives and the very first decree of then acting president vladimir putin on the last day of ninety thousand nine when he took over as acting president was to grant yeltsin and his coterie fact that immunity and on one thing. We're surprised that this hasn't been done before. But if you think back much closer to to where we are now this year of course we were talking about putin being being able to be president for the rest of his life because of course they changed the constitution earlier this year in russia and it means that the is white cane he can stand again for president in two thousand and twenty four and then if he wants to he can stand again in twenty thirty. They've overturned the previous idea. That president couldn't have more than two consecutive terms. But what this does. I think this is even more significant than and giving him that. Johnston president for life. It means that truly fall ill or something then. This means that he can. He can step down and not be prosecuted at the moment. The russian president compu- prosecuted while he's in office but until this is passed he can be prosecuted if he if he were down. Well it's really interesting statement. I guess it's sort of fun to speculate in a way. What appeals to vladimir putin most is it to just stay in office To sort of become superannuated president be there for decades as it will turn out or is he more concerned about protecting as you said his nearest and dearest and in the immediate coterie from from what we understand and we know about him. What do you think is most appealing to him. In the here and now is the consolidation. Is that endurance that longevity or do you think he'll be drawn to just melting away into the shadows. The shadows putin is someone who doesn't really have friends. He doesn't really trust anyone. That's his whole background as a street ladd in petersburg when he was growing up and even more so when he was kgb officer and so what he feels is that he he can never be sure he always reminded of sort of you know to broussais. And julius caesar and and that that to me is where putin stands that. He's always afraid that someone were to step down. Someone might change things and then drawing prosecute him and there's a number of things that they might want to prosecute for most not be now if we thinking well it's got to be after he's president. What does the state of the russian economy at rome. It's pretty awful. There are some very few at the top who are just unbelievably wealthy. Russia has nine thousand nine billionaires in the country at a time when thirty eight percents of the country at least according to official fingers are living below the poverty line. Russia is still very much dependent on oil and gas. And it's very interesting today. We have the news. That britain is saying no more petrol cars with diesel cars from twenty thirty. You know the world is going away from those fossil fuels and russia's not really doing anything about it and rushing. Business is is is not in a good position and so you know you could say one of his worst legs could be the state of the economy if you want to choose to step down but if this is passed in the duma has has given it its nods so far it has to go to the federation council. The house and then ironically putin himself would have to sign it off which. I have no doubt he would do. I mean i just wonder what do Russian pro democracy activists Putin's opponents have to say about the sorts of moves. Stephen because presumably there would be appetite in certain limited quarters to say look. We can't have a situation where people are protected in perpetuity from their alleged misdeeds. Particularly if it's a question of. I don't know following the money this sort of thing. Do you think that there will be a a counter. Lobby is ernie president to being able to sell it. We can review these These rulings down down the track or is that just a nonstarter. Right now is a non-starter. The doom is heavily stacked with putin supporters. Then indeed the federation council houses to. There's being talk over the is of of election. Rigging putin generally has a lot of popular support out in the country not so much in moscow some of the other big cities but those who are in power now would definitely know passes laura have no doubt it will become more and because what putin were he say to foil in five years time and so having been reelected in twenty four finally can't carry on steps down if this law is not in place then what frightens him is the idea. Is that in fact with. He's the hub of the wheel and he's taken out. Then we'll spokes collapse will then a real opposition which does exist. but it's very small and sat on very hard when it raises his voice. That actually stopped means something in which case could be a threat of prosecution. So he's he's trying to cover every base. I think it's very interesting that this is come on top of the idea that he could serve the rest of his life. This gives him the get out. I'm not well or on board. I want to step down. But i can still be secure. Won't be prosecuted prompts. The question stephen wh what does any eventual succession. Like i appreciate this. Very very speculative and it could be twenty four. It could be twenty thirty indeed but do we have any better sense of what putin's own Mission is you know he. He wouldn't want to melt into the shadows of you as you suggested but is there any hints of sort of you know a dynastic succession or do you think he's more interested in in the here and now i wonder if we can speculate even about what happens after he takes his hand from the tiller right now to be honest tom. I wouldn't want to name a name. Because i have no doubt that he will stand again. Twenty twenty four. So we're looking ten years since two twenty thirty two elections after that and because he can't stand again if he's still in good health and he's generally a fit man he's you know he's still does his judo and he's sixty eight years old now. But as we've seen in america being in your late seventies doesn't preclude you from standing for president so if he carries on fit. Well no reason why in twenty thirty he wouldn't stand again so you know. There's a whole generation of politicians would come up behind him. Then they may be the ones that maybe twenty thirty six fact we may be looking at three. Fold as a israel change. I'm if there is a change. Before that i can't really see it happening if health matters. Don't intervene before two thousand thirty so really as standing where we are now looking ahead. Ten years that famous phrase in brisbane week is a long time in politics. Ten years off it on.

A Conversation With Dr Anna Kavoura

"Which focuses and understanding how tender informs meaning in sport. I feel that this is such an important topic that it should have featured in this podcast already a long time ago indeed sport is a very gendered institution and although there has been a lot of effort to tackle gender-based inequalities in the past few decades a lot of work certainly remains to be done in today's episode. We explore how gender identity intersects with athletic identity with the focus on women's martial law. We discuss what this course is dominant in the sporting spaces and how these impact those who are unable or unwilling to accept and live according to these courses. We then move on to exploring the possibilities of alternative meanings discourses and practices of sport and finally discuss whether and how sporting spaces that are not based on a binary understanding of gender can be organized as well as the ethical imperative to organize sporting spaces that are inclusive safe for all our guest has completed several interesting research projects on gender in sport. She completed her PhD in sports Sciences at the University of Georgia Line Finland, which focused on understanding woman's identity negotiations in competitive Judo cultures after defending her PhD she continued working. Postdoc researcher at the University of a scallop in a project that focused on tackling discrimination against gender and sexual minorities in sports and physical education contexts off. She then move on to the school of sport and service management at the University of Brighton and currently works as opposed to researcher in a project titled transforming gender boundaries in sport, which is funded by The Finnish cultural Foundation. Welcome doctor onychophora and thank you so much for joining me for today's interesting and very important discussions. Hi Nora. Thank you for having me. I'm delighted that we are we are now here discussing this and we have talked about this already along a long time ago. And so now we finally get going and I cannot emphasize enough how much I feel that this is a very important topic to address and and for us to understand meaning in sport, we always have to be thinking about this gendered element of meaning and and how are cultural practices also shaped those meanings. So I'd be very delighted to hear a little bit about how you have become a nurse color and Willa sport Sports color, of course as well. But your research in the past ten years already has always been addressing these gender issues. So perhaps a little bit about the background story of of how you became a gender research. Yeah. Sure. So yes, I am always a little bit hesitant to call myself a gender school because as you said my background is in sports science and majoring in sports psychology, and I think it was sometime during my towards the end of my master studies when I started realizing that this focus on performance alone thought sometimes like mainstream sport psychological theories are all about especially when it is done in a way that neglects that context and the situational characteristics of Faith dividual such as gender race class religion and and so on like this way of work does not in English. Ask me that Matt and I became especially interested in gender. I think my interest like also comes from my personal experiences my experiences, for example of being young and female athlete in the mail domain of martial arts. But also experiences that go way back before that experiences of birth of a girl growing up in the patriarchal culture of Greece. For example,

Sometimes, we do chanting just very straightforward but I figured I'd do the Little Nicer version for for the rookies out there that may have never heard it. Might enjoy. Doing maybe we start with just a little bit about the meany of starting with like like Mandela for you did this John and you tell us a little bit about that because I'm sure as out there that that very interested in what you're doing with your hands. Right. So it's symbolizing the world you make the world you're purifying the world it a perfect place and you're setting up here. That's four continents floor directions in the mountain meadow the highest mountain, and there you envisioned a perfect pure realm and menu, fill it up with incense and flowers, and every offering that you can think of everything that has ever made you happy you kind of you offer it up to your teachers good Dharma Sanga and also your you know your afflictions things that may be bring you pain suffering you just offer it up, give it away, purify it all in making making everything. The way it should be. Wow. So you're really using your mind in that practice. Of course, you're saying something we'd be voice in you've got your body. You're also really using your mind when you're saying those brands with that digitalization. So absolutely, and I think you know one of the most beautiful offerings I've ever heard was an ocean of flowers you. You could never afford that many. But when you're doing this practice, you can offer things that you don't have. You can walk by you know. The diamond district offer all the jewelry there. Every beautiful thing you've ever seen things that you wanted for yourself that maybe you can't afford at least you can put it in that digitalization offered up to all beings you know in beings. And Use It as a as a release that have been attachment. Fantastic you're using your imagination. You don't necessarily have to own object your for. Only objects that you don't exist that Don exists are objects that are intangible. I can offer the laughter of your children or something like that. So it can really go go wild with your imagination as to what you think are the most beautiful things Yup I think in this case, going wild with your imagination is encouraged, right? Yes. You should. You should absolutely because it it's essential as you as you go on in practice to be able to develop your imagination because you'll you'll have to find yourself. Putting yourself in situations where your imagination is what's going to bring it to the next level of your practice I'm imagining that will imagining didn't mean to years that would I'm imagining? We'll be coming back to this would imagination out quite a bit. Did The Sun Creek you tell us what that is all about going for refuge is a Buddhist yield. You're going for refuge to the Buddha, Dharma, on the song the good is. Being all beings? Dharma. The teachings, the truth with the on Songa the collection, not just monks nuns but everyone around you that is going to help you achieve this goal. By the goodness of the deeds that I do and giving in the rest meaning to six projections of. Giving and morality patients, concentration wisdom giving morality patients, ethics, concentration, and wisdom of by practicing these things. May I become a Buddha not just for myself but for the sake of all living beings South intention. Yes. So Is Interesting. So Buddha dominance sauna. So you know for you before the acting career before the music business which will get to there was Buddhism right that came Beckham before the acting I think and I was wondering you grew up. Christian MRI. And I was wondering growing up Christian what was it that? How'd you end up Madonna breakage what drew you to the Buddha? Question. Is. It still boggles now it doesn't Boggle I. Am very lucky I grew up in a loving Christian household. So wasn't one of those you know fire Brimstone type situations might my grandmother was wonderful Christian? My my aunt is a is A. Wonderful Wonderful Beautiful Lady she is what it sounds like. You know it all intents and purposes and I have many wonderful Christian friends and family that that are amazing. But for me I felt like there was a point in my life maybe was a certain age of coming to being where certain things just didn't make sense to me anymore or or I. Felt that I was being drawn in another way and I wasn't sure what that way was. It wasn't a rejection of something but more a seeking more something else something that that just was sort of calling to say. So I. Couldn't quite out what it was and I remember my mother had this shelves. Books From College. There's one book in Religions of the World Textbook as a as a good place to start as any. and. So it's just kind of like starting through going through all the religions of the world literally starting with animism and and native American religions which brought me back to thinking of my own heritage and things that we learned from our grandmothers are on tees than you know, herbs and prayers that are not in any books or dances, or you know traditions, words that that are that I. Thought were Spanish that are not for example, and I started going to college and learning about that learning about old medicine learning about all different not just my try all the tribes of the Americas and I really was a great and still is a great experience. Great part of my life of the day I was still kept feeling that there was more and in my thirteen fourteen. So. I started going to hardcore shows New York hardcore scene, and there was a big Christian of consciousness movement bands like WanNa wait and shelter and and Chroma is and bad brains singing about this other esoteric type things and and you know the Christian of monks were always there hanging out singing hotter Krishnan and handing out food and stuff. So of course, I was checking it out and and there are some things that kind of you know paying some interest for me but then again, it was a lot of. Things that weren't also clicking. So know go back to the book the Book of the word yet it again. kind of thumbing through it and I see Dow is and I'm like reading through it. It's very logical. It's straightforward. There is no puppet masters like. Extra beings, there's no like get off the pay money you don't have. There's no strings attached. It's cause-effect cause-effect cause-effect that if you do a long enough, be will happen if you one plus one is to the softest thing in the world can cut through the hardest giving with time things like that and that kind of really appealed to me it was very grounded and very focused than. Kind of removed that, which may be I needed for awhile removed that. Mystical magical element at made it more about how to fix yourself now

What happens after you die?

"And what happened after you die? I don't really know my grandfather is. This is my brother. Can I think his body's gone and consciousness he's gone. Things were at their his box of committed ashes are right in front of me. Tell you what's his planning like? It know your voice is getting on that. Thing you're getting set. He's alive in a way. Like a ghost but as like. As like something. A. Scientist from never be able to know 'cause like let's say they need someone to die. So that they could make that on that. How would they make data on that? If the PERSON'S DEAD Kuenz right isn't a data. Yes. Some people have these near death experiences and they talk about like the lights at the end of the tunnel but the fact that they've told us about this means that they didn't die. I kind of feel like science isn't really going to work this time. So I. Thought I might turn to religion for semesters. Own Interview Buddhist because my grandparents they're Buddhist. And you know my dad is technically Buddhist although he doesn't really celebrate it. And I'm just interested to see what put us a mess to say about death there is no real short answer for the question that is so profound. This is Angie Neal he's actually chaplain for Olympians. And not only is he met the pope. He's also met the Dalai Lama so like this guy must know a lot about Buddhism. The main belief in Buddhism three scientific way of looking at things energy does not disappear. It usually assumes another form. and. The belief Buddhism is that when you die your spiritual energy does not just disappear. It assumes another form and that form can either be in hell or it can be on earth. Or it? Could. Be. In Heaven. In terms of Hell Hell is not a permanent place in Buddhism, hell is jail. If you've got really really bad Karma, you go to jail and then you have the chance of being pardoned and you have the chance of probation. So in Buddhism nobody goes to hell forever then comes earth. Now Earth of course is the most interesting part of it. If you are reborn on earth, you can either be reborn at says an animal we can be reborn as a human being there are certain criteria which would help decide what would be your formulas adopt like maybe if you're an aunt but you're like a really really good and maybe it come back in this time like beetle and just maybe work yourself up. Excellent. You've you learn certain spiritual lessons in this lifetime like in the same way that like a punishment itself isn't necessarily all bad he get punished so he can learn from that absolutely if you deep genuine remorse. Ask for forgiveness. They will give you a chance to go directly to heaven which we call Judo in Japan or Sukova Incense Sanskrit. Basically it's heaven.

The Little Known History of Japanese Internment on Angel Island

"Months before the coronavirus outbreak bay curious received a question from a listener wanting to know about what happened on Angel Island during World War. Two turns out the island played a very specific role in the internment of Japanese-americans. Though very few people know much about it reporter. Cecilia lay headed to the island to learn more. It's a picturesque pre pandemic Sunday morning in San Francisco when a border fairy to Ireland under way. The last time I visited the island was during middle school field trip. They learned about the Chinese exclusion. Act Saw the poems that Chinese immigrants had carved onto the walls. But I didn't learn anything about the Japanese being held here during World War Two. So I'm on my way to meet the only expert who knows this part of the island's little known history house and me any and that's what the immigrants were classified as and also a number of the drop in on Grant Din who is teaching Angel Islands Own tour guides about the internment of Japanese residents. That happened here my name is Scranton. I'm a volunteer with the Angel and the Immigration Station Foundation. Seventy eight years ago after Pearl Harbor had broken out and president. Franklin D Roosevelt signed executive order nine. Oh six which authorized the rounding up of Japanese immigrants and Japanese Americans who were citizens into relocation camps in one thousand nine hundred eighty two Japanese residents all along the west coast were arrested because the US government suspected that many of them had allegiances to Japan and could secretly be working on their behalf. Fishermen had every opportunity to watch the movement of our ships. Japanese farmers were living close to vital aircraft plants. So as a first step all. Japanese were required to move from critical areas. Such these more than one hundred ten thousand Japanese American civilians including children hatch abandon their homes and businesses. We're taking two racetracks fairgrounds for the army. Almost overnight had build assembly center. They lived here until new. Pioneer communities could be completed on federally owned lands in the Interior. They were relocated to remote camps throughout the US surrounded by armed guards and barbed wire. They lived like this for the duration of the war. About two thirds of them. Were born right here in the US and then there was another group people the US government considered to be the biggest threat and the most dangerous. This is the group that grants researched all the people who are rounded up during this program by the Department of Justice by the FBI were Japanese immigrants and so by that means they were considered enemy aliens. Unlike the other Japanese civilian internees a majority of these quotes enemy. Aliens were men who were born in Japan. They faced interogations and were separated from their families during their internment. These men were singled out because the government had been keeping an eye on them for a while as far back as five years before Japan. Bombed Pearl Harbor even before World War. Two broke out. There were dossiers being kept on Japanese immigrants who are in this country both in Hawaii and on the mainland the FBI was watching anyone who had close ties to Japan or held prominent roles in the Japanese community. Buddhist priests language schoolteachers shopkeepers. Newspaper editors anyone who was considered a leader or expert in Japanese culture especially martial arts. I found several cases of people who are in Kendo or judo and so they went to Japan for meats and so they were often put on the list of potential saboteurs. The rounding up of these Japanese residents happened very quickly. Homes were raided without warrants. Papers were confiscated about seventeen thousand. Total Japanese immigrants were arrested and seven hundred of them were from the West Coast. Mostly from Hawaii sent here to the bay area to Angel Island.

Live - Throwing Copper

"Hello everybody. Welcome to audio judo. I'm Matthew I'm kyle. Thanks for joining us today. Indeed Al How're you doing? I'm doing pretty good. How are you doing well? That's good it's good to hear. Superman does good. I do well very nice. Thanks thirty rock. We got some business I do. Oh good let's talk earlier this week. We were lucky enough to talk to One of my musical idols. Fish the ex lead singer of a progressive rock band from that. Was that still around now. But was very popular in the eighties Very continues to popularity in Europe not so much in the states The band's name was Meridian fish is about to release his final studio album later this year and he was gracious enough to join us from his home in Scotland and chat for about forty five minutes or so. It was great Since our timeline might be out of wack currently That episode mice most likely aired before this one did so if you are joining us for the first time to listen to this episode. I encourage you to go back. And listen to that one as well Gave us some great info about the current state of the music industry regarding re Corona Virus. Yeah and some other super stuff as well as well as cooking. Lovely lamb dinner for his mother while he was on the phone with us so that was a great interview. I really enjoyed it. That was fun is fun. Talk to once. You can understand what he's saying. I'm just kidding. That's surprisingly had no problem with that. Just a couple words yet. A Scottish before we had talked to matthew was like Ilyas a Scottish brogue in his voice and I was like okay. So I'm really going to pay attention. I picked it right up. I don't know how good I mean. It wasn't fancy than me. I guess that's good. Yeah there was only one time where I was kind of like. What was that word but that I think we both looked at each other. Like what the heck was that word but we got ammos great. We got it through context. I believe yeah also Again since I don't know exactly when this will be airing I'm not entirely sure where we will be. In the Corona Virus Saga Twenty Twenty. Either way the crisis it has affected everyone including independent artists trying to carve out a living back in October. We interviewed a band of Kentucky. Named the cold stares they're great ban really wonderful guys And this crisis hit them. Quite hard. Cancelled all their gigs. That they had lined up for the summer as well as putting a stop to some of their teaching gigs for the time. Being since most of those are done in person they put together a special t shirt that they are selling for twenty five bucks to help supplement their lost other. I bought a couple And if you'd like to buy one or just have a look at them Encourage you to go to their merchandise site. It's the cold stares dot square dot site. Anything you can do to help out would be appreciated that includes paying for some downloads. Listen their music or whatever but your independent artists out. There is most likely struggling big time so if you want to listen to them or you have one in particular that you enjoy listening to throw him a couple of downloads. Do whatever you to help them out because this is a very difficult time for everybody. Yes it is. That's all I have for old business. So this week's choice. Nineteen ninety four album throwing copper by the group live just so we're clear. This was one of my favorite bands from that period. And this record is probably my top fifteen. Those lists are always really difficult kind of weird to make. I'm not saying that this is one of the top fifteen records ever made or that. I even think this is one of the best top fifteen records that I could listen to. It's just one of those records that I go back to a few months and listen to us to have a permanent place in my multi. Cd Changer and it's one of those records at shows up in my top plays when spotify. Geezer your list at the end of the year. So was it trunk mounted multi play. Cd player it was. That's nice. It's very ah Nice. He had a removable one as well. That was an different car. But Julio that was a fancy with the little handle how Mr Rich Roller Rare. It's all it's all for the music so live. The band consists of four guys. Chad gracey on drums Chad Taylor on guitar to Chad's a Patrick Dole Heimer on bass and Ed Kowalczyk on vocals and guitar. They have been together since the mid eighties when they were all in their middle teens. Typical suburbanite garage band They were founded in York. Pennsylvania originally called public affection but renamed themselves live in the nineteen eighties right before they got a record deal. Oh they regularly played. Cbgb's in New York. Those concerts help secure their first record deal. Nineteen Ninety one nineteen ninety-one New Year's eve of Nineteen ninety-one to be exact. They released their first album mental jewelry. And that was the first I ever heard of them or saw them to be more precise oh I saw them and heard them for the first time on. Mtv's twenty minutes It was for song called operation. Spirit the tyranny of tradition and it was very direct for me when I first thought it caught me off guard. It was very jarring so I was at that time. Nineteen year old kid about three months away from meeting my future wife smoking. A lot of we'd drink a lot of beer very angry and confused about my life and prospects I've been raised. Catholic went to Catholic school and was jaded mad about a lot of things I had been raised to believe. We're true. My parents were devout Catholics. My was a permanent deacon in the Catholic Church which in Catholicism is as close as you can get to being a priest without actually becoming one more than anything because he had been married. I my mom also had a certificate in theology from the seminary which as close as you can get to being a nun without actually being one more than anything because she had been married. I pattern here. So they taught classes on sexuality and marriage so yeah it was weird. Oh boy that's very weird however that was fun as was very strange but they were not strict. Like you would expect. Yeah I had to go to church every Sunday But I still watch rated movies. My parents drank. They knew I did too so it was fine but I was angry because it all seemed like a big scam to me And I realized that we're kind of far afield from music but it's kind of relevant so when I was a kid I was really bought into this charade I was an altar boy sang in the choir played. Drums and a host of different events at the church went to Catholic school and I believed what I was being taught because that was what I was raised to believe but then I got into high school and I started forming the person I was going to become and began to think for myself I started. Look things look things differently right? I went to a pretty liberal Catholic highschool and in our religion classes which were daily especially towards senior year. We were encouraged at some point to explore different religions. I'm sure it was under the guise of comparison shopping but it opened a lot of is because other religions or spiritual practices made a lot more sense than the pomp and tradition of Catholicism especially like during Easter or something.

"Andrew. Thank you again for joining us on the show and sharing your story and you know some processes particularly Brazilian Jujitsu another stuff. We'll get into and just help another folks with your perspective to kind of make that progress of thank you. Thank you Kevin. I'm excited to be. I think that what you've done so far has been a really good and I think it's important to break down Particularly the process aspects. You don't really hear very much about that when you're listening to a podcast or learning about Things though the process part in particular is something. That really appeals to me especially as every business been involved with as grown over the years. Yet I for the impetus for this which is really I rebranded. I had another pockets called between the slides and then honestly the more folks. I talked to. What so if you're like when you have to explain it a lot you're let me make it more obvious. But it was largely focused on that for the world that I came from a public safety and incident management special events and then project management. It's super process heavy Sometimes too much sometimes informal and everything in between and in particular as you mentioned eighteen months in was still very new but totally getting into more of the the understanding of how incremental of process that is of like every little roll little thing. Little tweak little move and it's kind of mind blowing even from being so new of how much depth their is. They're part of an episode. Let me do kind of like a book. Report podcast version of of one variation and You know from grappling to the modern Brazilian Jujitsu and the seventy different variations. So I was very interested to see all those different flavors of history and people and you know cross discussions and things and So for you and I and I've looked up some your background and and heard some of this from when I listen to you on on dirty web. What radio which was cool so folks if you haven't listened to that check that out as well But your process in about you. Are you from the rich Mary? I know you've been there forbidden went to vcu. Are you originally from Richmond? Virginia No actually grew up in Columbia South Carolina so about Twenty five years ago. I just wanted sort of a change in a ended up in the Richmond area. Then it's funny I've been enrichment for A little over twenty five years now on. It's still doesn't really feel like I'm from here. You know there's no other place that has ever traveled to where I think it's quite So so Front and center. When you're if you didn't grow up in Richmond. You're not really from here. You know and it feels that way to me still like imposter syndrome or something. It even in the area. It's it's still it's shifted now. I grew up in Chesterfield South side. Now it's kind of the old old area and I remember just a richmond thing of someone at intern. I think I had when I worked for the state And she grew up in Henrico. Which is the place to be so to speak of and and just talking about. Oh you grew up in south side like it was such an old place and it was so different but the economy and the change and everything of all the different areas around Richmond Annex. Pretty NEAT but but yeah it's There's definitely a very kind of Richmond. If you're from there you're kind of all in as well One thing we do share Richmond wise as we both went to vcu I'm a back to school. Use My job building stuff and went to an for you starting That's where you got into judo first-rate. That's right yeah. I wrestled in high school I wasn't amazing but I got a lot better my senior year. I was actually starting to get pretty good but then I graduated high school in there. Just wasn't there wasn't wrestling at the college. I went to which was university South Carolina. Okay you believe it or not. There wasn't a wrestling team there at least in the nineteen nineties and I was really bummed because I sort of fall in love with grappling Wrestling you know Dan so I mean. I wrestled a little bit with the high school kids. After the season you know went to a few freestyle wrestling tournaments but I just wanted more wanted to keep going and there wasn't anything there and I think ironically there was a judo club. But I didn't think much about judo back then When I was in South Carolina and then I moved up to Richmond and in nineteen ninety seven. I started training judo at the judo club and at vcu and it was just. I was hooked right away. It was a special time for for martial arts special time for judo. Insofar as there was a lot of sort things that were coming together at the right place at the right time we know the UFC. We have to go back in time. You have been on on the air since nineteen ninety-three but nobody had seen it like literally. Probably fifty thousand people saw the I see in the There was another one eight months later or something and that's the sort of the way it was so is this sort of a niche underground to a degree but people that were involved with judo They knew about the UFC. They knew about Grappling they were reading. You know Martial arts magazines and stuff like that like black doll magazine was sort of the the leader back then if you were interested in even grappling. Because there wasn't there weren't industry specific magazines out there so I think that communities were a lot more interconnected. You had a lot more sort of a Geek condo type people involved with grappling people. You know judo injury. Jitsu were much more closely related than they sort of art today Which I mean as far as martial arts go. They're very very similar as far as like the way. The Arts are practiced in the culture. It's it's pretty different. Judo is a lot more formal. You just is very very laid back. You know tends to get rid of a lot of aspects of the tradition and so Maybe it's perceived as incompatible to a lot of a lot of people but I was really lucky at vcu It wasn't really like that. There were people coming over from you just schools throughout town and When I started competing in in Jujitsu Before actually started formally training in it. I'd had experience at the Judo Club. Traveling around Training going to seminars stuff like that. But no consistent regular training in. That was possible back then. It was possible because of the particular circumstances that I had to actually do pretty well when I competed in some of those arenas because I had you know. Of course judo Experience Judo Club but also good grappling especially for the time we had people. He wrestled before but also people that were actively training in Brazilian Jujitsu. And I think that was uncommon back. Then so it's sorta how things got started for me. When I moved to the Richmond area was really really lucky. Fell into the right

So I mean if you look at the early iteration of and you're absolutely right as the game is one of the biggest parts of the early ecosystem you mentioned Brooke for example Brendan the CEO of one as well as a big long history history. In gaming the way we look at it is the first iteration on watching games. Were really very very simple. You look at today's Ace. Whatever they are and these are real kind of fuel outright blockchain games? They had that time. In my opinion I think what we're looking for now as a company like Mexico Games okay. That's a traditional AAA games. Judy I mean there's four four x judo heads I mean these guys have produced teams like club. She old from activision guys. And so that's really NUNTII. Five percent a traditional triple eight gaming studio but that extra five percent the unlocking with blockchain. NFC's and the ability own trade your own digital assets and that peace could have unlocked huge market before we not been able to play and we told them AAA the writing. Yes well in a sense I mean triple eight means talk what you expect to play on your xbox that kind of triple instead of the smaller adapt that we see now which maybe don't add. Fiddling little things have not yet a humongous massive revenue-generating new generating massive uses massive audiences. Like doesn't say call Judy exactly. And we'll a lot of these projects that you're investing being in but I'm asking you this because I love the skinny on this you were in the depths of it will issue. There are entitled to the same buying new sold or skin for the guy. I'm not so the thing is I mean that's a great question and it's a huge on something I try and keep it very few it is I mean getting to to mock it with the ability for players to actually extract value the whole point about blockchain digital assets is for the first time in a game you have ownership like property when you think about it. That's the title Property Property Rights then you've got markets and then and you have value transacted value. You're GONNA need at some stage and starts and where the cryptic token ends. It's a big big question. There's a lot of antimony neutering Kyi seat. I think any any game launches in developed market. It will need to compete. Consider those very very carefully if it's a simple straightforward. That doesn't really exist such as fashion. You you gotta get paid in L. Soul. Make your money in theory or whatever it is is less of an issue but for those games yes I mean that. KYC aml melting is going to be considered. Yeah makes sense. Actually we think about the the profiles of Playa Rod that profile the play as it goes through the ranks. It's GonNa be a cold early to there's going to be something that it's this artist. Shoot so I understand that saw. It's your character that you're gone or it's your soul. It makes Mike Sense to me an arm. Somebody not deeply entrenched in the technology on the trader speculate educated. But that's what I do in this so yeah it makes perfect sense. It's good that you say that because a lot of people just start on this step especially from traditional finance. They didn't understand like why would she. You pay a thousand dollars your character to have Louis Vitton Tom back. It doesn't make sense. It's like well you pay for your wife's one so you know just because it's in real life it's the same things apply. The same vanities apply so one loss longer. So I mean it's it's getting people to understand that and broaching does allows you to have limply in game sneakers or whatever it is so the wolves absolutely shifting in that direction. It's you know you can understand that thankfully very smile. So what else investing in the space. I can't imagine that you've execute all the funds yet. Imagine a lot of law a good ten things. I'd say let's talk. Let's hope told months from now as despite the falls ask me say. We'll regulation as businesses actually bringing products to the the mock rather hitting the road. Clients uses actually using things that have been created. Obviously we no longer markets. All of these projects are going to file ninety percent of businesses businesses and startups file. anyways too dissimilar to what we GONNA say. What do you think's going to be the next thing? Twelve months with the Progression Charlie as we say it so what I'm still waiting to see is that is a big existing business to effectively reinvent themselves by putting some part of that process on blockchain and that's kind of because it has the potential told to open so many doors allows the things that you couldn't do before but I've not seen enough cases of twenty twenty billion logistics company or social media. Come or any major company saying look now but Chris we implemented this. We're GONNA get an signings. Multiple that skyrocket. So whatever it is I haven't seen that and I think I'm hoping to see that. In the next twelve months as this space Mitchell's I'm I'm from a investment one of you. That's what we look for as well you know you know. We're a CRYPTO conference have been looking at blockchain companies but you blockchain venture well beyond what you'd call a blockchain company is any company that uses blockchain at all to reinvent invent or improve substantially any part of the business process for less time. And it's just not enough companies that we find them effectively actively And that's the challenge for the next twelve

Canada elections: Trudeau wins narrow victory to form minority

"Judo has won a second term as Canada's Prime Minister his Liberal Party will claim the most seats in parliament but they are expected to fall short of an outright majority. Let's have a listen to of what Trudeau had to say in his victory speech in Montreal from coast to Coast to coast tonight Canadians rejected division negatively they rejected cuts and austerity and they voted in favor of progress serve agenda and strong action on climate change I heard you my friends you are sending our liberal team back to work back to Ottawa with a clear mandate we will make life more affordable we will continue to fight climate change we will get guns off our streets and we will keep investing well big words but minority government that was the Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaking a short time ago join here in the studio by Daniel Bank One of our Canadian contingent Heritz Midori House Danny what's your reactions that he he sounded pretty strung out but we were talking just before the thanks went live you know he's now looking to features the setting the agenda as he moves forwards was everyone been saying yeah he has to sort of shake off a very visit and bitter campaign quickly and get back to work that was more of a campaign style speech and it's really interesting that Trudeau that was close to do one o'clock in the morning and Montreal is quite late I was listening on the way and this morning he chose to speak at the exact same time as Andrews Cheer was speaking in the prairies Indus Jagmeet Singh was speaking out in British Columbia normally they don't do that normally they come together and say I'm going to speak at this time you'll speak at that time they all spoke at the same time they spoke over each other during the Bates during the debates they spoke over each other early this morning as they sort of rallied the troops again aw projecting this as a huge victory but liberals conservatives and the MVP all lost ground so they're all losers they're all winners innocence where we had that before electoral pollens just tell us a bit about minority government Canadians good at doing that I mean we have a long history of minority governments certainly the world the word coalition I mentioned this on the globalist as well not really used in Canada it was it was floated by Jagmeet Singh Very Progressive Left leaning leader of the D. new Democrats floated during the campaign he immediately had to walk that back and talk about supporting the government Interestingly the new Democrats are directly against the pipeline they they refuse to work for that pipeline the Liberals bought the pipeline in for the energy sector in the West obviously which the conservatives champion so the new Democrats have twenty four seats for the Liberals to get anything through parliament they would need either the new Democrats the block by block of Becua- pardon me the Nationalist Party from Quebec who actually won more seats on last night then the EP so they are the real balance of power here it won't be a coalition in official terms Justin Trudeau we've known him to become quite bullish and even quite pompous I don't see him putting An and EP member into his caucus into his government I don't see that happening so it won't be an official coalition absolutely he'll need their support so it will be a tenuous one the Conservative leader Andrew Scheer saying last night were ready and waiting to defeat the government and we're ready to take over they don't think it's GonNa last long so we shall see what about his deal-making prowess see this has been damaging Trudeau to a degree does he still have the facility to do any kind of deal with any of these other players are the formal or informal it is present me he's still a well he still capable Titian can you get that done I think you'll have to he he won't have choice he the clip we heard off the top there he was talking about making life more affordable tackling climate change and he would absolutely need the new Democrats for those things that's what they campaigned on on you know making healthcare more affordable making living more affordable and and talking about Pharma Cares taking the taking care of that he would absolutely need the MVP I think Jagmeet Singh is guy he can work with very charismatic young guy much like Trudeau champion himself fashioned himself in his first campaign Trudeau will need to maintain sort of his strong leadership approach and Project that behind closed doors heal absolutely need to be the tactful politician and get some help let's see how it gets on with that now we mentioned you're GonNa Browse through some newspapers can I start with my yeah it's it's true though with the witch's brooms and some bats and black cats playing up the Halloween theme that It is a story right leaning newspaper from from Alberta projecting welcome to the nightmare it's so funny actually hearing overnight the some of the coverage from the public broadcaster in Canada them reminding listeners about nineteen eighty when when Pierre Trudeau and Justin's father was completely shut out in the prairies much like Trudeau was last night because of the resentment in Alberta always actually really surprised to hear from even liberal western Canadians how much they've resent inch trudeau he is really disliked. This is a problem the other thing about forming a government is what his father did in nineteen eighty was he had to draft in senators to read percents those providence provinces in his government because he had no MP's the exact same situation now will true draw from the opposition parties to help misgovernment put them in cabinet posts or will he draft in people who weren't even elected or didn't even campaign his father did exactly that he wasn't liked out west the energy sector after the massive question of course international forces international markets have a lot to do with the price of oil and how the energy sector does but there you're huge huge implications for Trudeau and what he does on this pipeline Quebec and the block Becua- don't support it the MVP don't support it but western Canada says we have to get moving on the energy file let's just have a couple of others national post was one of the most beautifully and elegantly designed administered and Jagmeet Singh the leader of the EP declaring I won which is which is partially true at the end ep lost a lot of they did gain a lot of ground during the campaign a Jagmeet Singh did very well for himself and projecting himself as a capable young charismatic leader he will be an interesting one to watch in the House of Commons Holding Trudeau to account And this other comment piece I find quite funny on the front of the National Post PM Makes History with a new low he he moves on from a majority government to lose the popular vote across Canada Canada but and the other comment saying he's pulled off a bit of an election miracle which I think after the last two scandals he he did quite well to pull that in an election
