"Yeah. Um, I think you've referencing Roger Kipling or way I didn't know. No, it's a Sinclair Lewis novel, uh, kind of an old one. But it's called the title is It can't happen here. And it's all about fascism. Coming to America know so well, I'm asking. Okay. What? Your son had a curve. What? What? What do we do? Go inform. What do you suggest we do? You know, we've like you've been saying we've got to resist. We've got to stand firm optics are so important in any information war in any Propaganda battle. You know we're dealing with right now. You got it. We've got to understand the optics are super important, so we have to conduct ourselves in a manner. That is is Well, we I say we have to put I think we have to push back to we can't. We can no longer sit across the table with a family member at a birthday party or Thanksgiving, and they start running out some shuck and jive progressivism. We go right down her throat. Yeah, and bring it back to principles of Hey, look, we stand for freedom. You want to do what you wanna do? You want to call yourself whatever you wanna call yourself Don't do with my money. My point is that you're not trying to start a fight Where your kick over the table start shooting. But you you can't tolerate their bs anymore. Even if you have to get him walk. We can no longer look at these people's anything other than on the enemy team. I don't care. I used a family member. But even if its co worker you just can't tolerate it anymore. No Amen. And I'm often reminding my leftist friends and people in my circles these days of the famous quote I forgot who said it, But he said, Hey, most people love socialism right to the trench where they get shot..
Do We Live in a Simulation? Chances Are about 50–50 ...
"A new study from astronomer David KIP ING published this summer, and the Journal Universe argues that the odds we live in a simulation are just about fifty fifty. As you can imagine this has caused a bit of a stir scientific American broke down kipling's arguments as well as some responses to it, and some of the previous where he was building off of an a lot of it frankly goes a bit over my head, but I wanted to share some highlights at first for the less matrix inclined listeners. What exactly do I mean by the idea of living in a simulation basically that all of us are mere virtual beings existing if you WANNA call it that unknowingly in a massive computer simulation? Over the years many scientists have tried to uncover ways. We could prove whether this is true or not. But some of the work has also revolved around calculating the odds of US living in a simulation or whether we are simply in base reality that is to say that we actually exist and this isn't all simulated. Is. Worth noting there's a lot of debate over what the simulation actually means and how one even defines consciousness for that matter. I kinda like this interpretation from Neil degrasse Tyson that he shared on a recent episode of Star Talk Quoting Scientific American, the simulation would most likely create perceptions of reality on demand rather than simulate all of reality all the time much video game optimized. To, render only the parts of the scene visible to a player maybe that's why we can't travel faster than the speed of light because if we could, we'd be able to get to another galaxy said Chuck Nice the show's Co host before prompting Tyson to gleefully interrupt before they can program it. The astrophysicists said delighting at the thought. So the programmer put in that limit end quote. Someone Pretty. Wild to think about and apart from the Matrix movies bringing this concept to the mainstream most scientists refer back to a two thousand three paper by Nick. Bostrom in Oxford philosopher which quote the Magic, a technologically adept virtualization that possesses immense commuting power and needs a fraction of that power to simulate new realities with conscious beans in them. Given this scenario, his simulation argument showed that at least one proposition in the following trauma must be true. I humans almost always go. Before reaching the simulation savvy stage second, even if humans make it to that stage, they are unlikely to be interested in simulating their own in central, passed and third. The probability that we are living in a simulation is close to one and quotes. But more recently keeping whose paper I mentioned was published earlier. This summer collapsed those first two propositions into one because in both cases, there are no simulations and he used busy and reasoning to calculate the probability busy and reasoning quote allows one to calculate the odds of something happening called the posterior probability but I making assumptions about the thing being analyzed, assigning a prior probability and quotes. Using the reasoning with regards to the simulation kipling's calculation comes out to about fifty fifty. It leans slightly in favor of based reality in part because he says that even in a world where we can simulate reality as more and more of them are spawned the computing resources of each generation dwindles and eventually simulations aren't able to be hosted bought. The odds could change if we do actually invent the technology to simulate conscious beans at which point, it becomes almost certain that we are living in a simulation. And could we ever figure out if we're not real whom on Awadhi and expert on computational? Mathematics. At the California Institute of Technology says only if there's a finite amount of computational power because if it's infinite, it could create whatever degree of reality necessary to continue tricking. US. Essentially, there's a lot of complex hypothesizing going on in several different fields and you can read a little bit more about. The link in the show notes. But at the end of the day keeping goes back to Adams Razor, which says that simplest explanation is usually correct and in this case, the simplest explanation is that we're at based reality there is no simulation just the boring hard truths of our real existence. So take that as your red pill.
Interview With Ben Shapiro, Author Of How to Destroy America in Three Easy Steps
"With US co founder Of the daily wire. Ah, host of the Ben Shapiro Show number one New York Times bestseller. His latest book is How to Destroy American Three Easy Steps. Ben. He wrote this book. And we're in the middle of this. We seem to be dead Set on destroying America. Did you give everyone a blueprints or something? I am glad that I cannot take responsibility for it. I did not give them will bring. But I won't say that. When I wrote the book in the summer January, I figured out the relevant I didn't think you'd be quite literally been quite this quickly, like all the all the syndrome that I was talking about taking the country broke out into the open at once. So, you know, forget about the gun violence. What? You talked about the civil unrest in Philadelphia in Oakland in Portland in Seattle in New York City in Austin in Albuquerque. And And in Kansas City. What's going on here? I mean, what we're watching right now is a variety of movements, all pretending, t be about civil rights and moving the country better and then all immediately about making the country worse, But they're really about Castigating America as uniquely horrible castigating America systems as repositories of privilege and evil and saying that those systems need to be torn down. Whether you're talking about black lives matter. Rioters in Los Angeles or New York or Washington, DC, or the top men and rioters in Portland or in Seattle. We're watching in the end is sort of a lion's that says that the United States is bad. It's just that the bleeding spear of an ideology That that claims that the United States of systems are unworthy of continuing and need to be tor now out at the root, and there's a reason that Nicole Hannah Jones is very proud, she said. This on Twitter that did it that count 16 19 project and tackle editor of The New York Times. At this point, she said, on Twitter that she was happy. The people were suggesting that what happened in New York and L. A in Washington, D, C and all over the country that was 16 19 riots, meaning that her perspective on the United States namely that it was rooted in evil. And it's inseparable from that evil. That perspective had taken such hold. Now let me ask you Does that come up in the interview? Hi. How you doing? Tell me about your background. You seem to be a good writer and your view of America. It's terrible needs to be disassembled. And what based on slavery? I think you're the perfect person. We have a column. Feed it right. And we have a news division for you to lead so to prove bench appeal. You're right. I'm looking at, uh Ted Lin Seth. He is somebody who is A, uh, African American activist. He said Oregon is white is hell. Uh, he said that He warned that the black guys, Ah matter movement in the city is being co opted by quote privileged white people with their own agenda. It is not our agenda and double a C P is saying the same thing. Why are you telling us what we need again? If it is a white black thing? Why we, depending why are white people taking the lead is not the ultimate insult, telling black people What they need for justice. Late is pretty incredible. But even it goes back to this view of racism that is actually pushed by people like you bring Candy and Robert Angelo and Kenny, Of course, the author of how to Be a racist and from the Beginning and Financial of the author of My Fragility, their View of the United States that the United States is on only racist, But the racism is embedded in all of its systems. And so the way to you identify raising them. Is not how we used to identify racism used to be. You could pretty easily tell who's the racist who ever thought that there was inferiority or superiority based on racial race, right? That was the definition of racist well, Now they changed the definition. They say Any system that create any sort of racial inequality or results in any sort of racial inequality is a racist system. And if you don't want to tear down the system You are racist. Not only that, if you're a white person, you bear all responsibility for this so nobly bears responsibility for the success of white privilege to have lived under and propagated this particular system. What That doesn't mean that white people are still in charge. And the white people are the are the people who have you know, in the sort of old Runyon Kipling phrase that the white man burden to fix the entire system. And so what That means that the views of people of color actually don't matter. The only ones that actually matter are the views of people like Robin D'Angelo was going to cure the country of Whiteness and hat and take on the past in of the United States, So that's why you see these bizarre videos of these white protesters lecture and black ops about what America needs on racism. But I also find her standing, too, is the place they're just overrun with gun violence. And that, of course, is Chicago with great Rahm Emanuel rained and left with his tail between his legs but came out with his chest high with his with his chin in the air in his chest pumped out as if he was a great victor. So because the president did states actually did what he said he was going to use his Listen. I'm gonna send some federal help in there. To not to handle protesters on the Christopher Columbus statue. No, but to find out about these guys. Gangs there were running rampant and the sub gangs that are killing each other. They're shooting each other at funerals at funerals. And here's the mayor. Who blames it on who blames this whole thing on the president's and his willingness to cab federal help cut seven I've drawn a very hardline will not allow federal troops in our city. We will not tolerate unnamed agents, taking people off the street, violating their rights and holding them in custody. That's not happening here in Chicago, so I've drawn a very, very bright line. I've made that very clear to every federal authority that I have spoken with. And they understand that if they cross that line We will not hesitate to use every tool at our disposal to stop troops and unwanted agents in our city. So this woman who should be begging for help with 117,000 gang members, 55 known gangs 747 factions, and they say there are 2500 subsets of those major gangs. You think this won't be begging for help? Instead, she's drawing the line and went through. When push comes to shove, she'll take down Columbus a statue. What planet are we on, Ben? We're on a planet where one of the one of the tactics But that's being used by mayors across the country who are on the left is something that unauthorized infront Eagle, who would the counter of City Institute hey called the riot ideology. The basic idea here back in the 19 sixties, and that was the riots or sometimes useful because politicians will use them as a way to club the citizenry into essentially giving the rioters what they want. So Marion Barry technically did this in Washington, DC He wouldn't work with people outside the governments who are protesting, but actually, we're in Aged in violence, and then he would basically say that the taxpayer to do all these people will stop here to the five things you need to do this something John Lindsay in New York City during the 19 sixties. He basically said the way that we can help alleviate the underlying problems here and do all the things we want you to do. Well, if you're a leftist politicians, you have two possible sort of solutions here. One is that you surrender to the protesters simply because You are afraid that they are more work than you are. And that you're going to be castigated is insufficiently weapons. And at the same time you can go to the citizenry consideration. We can alleviate all these problems. All you have to do these things. I want you to know you're starting to see hints of this nationally. By the way, you're starting to see writers say things like, you know, it's awful. This is Trump resign tonight. You're saying that part out loud, Which is it? This whole thing is about you wanting what you want, and you're only going to stop this democratic elected So essentially, you're threatening the law abiding citizens of the United States. You're going to continue violating law and wrecking major cities and shutting down major cities in six PM and curfews unless you get what you want. Well, that's never believe him. Ocracy is operated and no democracy can operate under those conditions. So, Ben, do you get the sense in looking at your book? There are reasonable people in the middle that understand when a mayor Lightfoot says things the way they do way, understand that these liberal mayor's saying, this is going to be the summer of love in Portland and then see the ransacking of a city like we're seeing, and now we see it re re igniting in Seattle. So when do you get the sense that there's a majority of Americans who who don't care about the politics but a logical enough to see the problem? So I think that most Americans, definitely the problem. I think the biggest problem right now is that the media is such an incredible job of making intimate. Everybody's focusing on President Trump that they've ignored the real problems that are played in the country right now, and they're downplaying it purposefully in order to convince Americans that none of this is happening, how you get that, during that quote, where, he says there's no such thing as in chief of violence. And the only way that you could do that number one of your delusional but number two. If you really think that you could get away with that, and the media decided point again, which they have been playing, So do I think that the vast majority of Americans are happy to go along with us. No, I think the best majority Americans know that this is nonsense. But I think that the polarization around the election is so effective and so effective around President Trump. This is the media have basically been able to make this a referendum on Trump as opposed to a referendum on violence. And this is why it's very important to President Trump be incredibly focused last 100 days of this campaign he really needs Prevent the media from using distraction in order to avoid the logical conclusion here, which is that if you actually want this stuff to stop and not paid to rioters and looters and protesters, then what you actually need is somebody who is going to affect you wait longer. The president needs to make that message inescapable until you can offer the sort of distraction that maybe sometimes I wonder if you know one thing I have to say he's been pretty discipline. I thought he had a very good week last week. He definitely saw the change in messaging, and I do think 99 days in this In this world we're in is a lifetime. I agree. I agree. I think last week was much much better, and we just need to see that we just need to see them and we don't want this to become you know that that image from the Simpson nations work actually read that back to zero. Instead. What we just want is consistent level of solidity coming from the White House looking people have been, I think, begging for this from the beginning because President Trump's policies are actually quite popular. And when President Trump 16 script that he is quite popular, the problem is that he hasn't so if he can actually being here's the discouraging part. He's down in the polls. The encouragement He performed about badly de cluttering will have three months and just not not in terms of policy. But in terms of stuff he's been saying would mean that this is a low water mark, and you're going to see him rise in the polls are gonna start to see things tighten up a little bit at the very least before the election, and if he's disciplined, and if he can point to this he really has to do is point you say well, what Democrats are supporting worst. Joe Biden condemning these riots. Worthy. He's hiding in the basement. Where is it? You want to do an interview? Chris Wallace, it Trump can do that and be consistent about it. Then I think this election's been tied up with her. But I just think that we're not looking at Barack Obama had 5 48 years old with his his eloquent speech and promises that he couldn't fulfill. But you say Well, pretty talented guy, Bill Clinton. He had all his personal problems. But man, can he speak, and he certainly was comfortable on a myriad of issues. No one doubted his intellect. But when you look at Joe Biden, he's the worst candidate that I have seen in my lifetime. And if President Trump can close the gap and force him to actually campaign That would actually be an exponential gain for him. I mean, no question. I mean, Joe Biden is an extraordinarily we candidate who's being benefited by two particular circumstances. One Kobe has made it so he doesn't have to go out and campaign is actually benefiting him tremendously. He just gets to stay home and talk to friendly's basically was really nice for him. He doesn't have to demonstrate any level of potential energy. It all on number two is the fact that he's campaigning. As I said before, essentially the dead person. He's basically what you're saying. I am. A tree stump. And you don't like trump to vote for the tree stump. And so that makes it really a referendum on Trump, which means that this is very much about hands from shift the burden of proof back to buy as opposed to letting it sit on his own shoulders. So then, Lastly, you write the book how to destroy America in three easy steps. I felt as though I am well the book by just reading the news. Unfortunately, if the word destroyed does work, and it is getting, I think it's beginning TTO unnerve our allies. What's happening in our country right now. What is the element that we could see around the bend that would make you believe that we are on that path that we have not discussed yet? I think that the one thing that they would allow us to recover here is a renewed sense of what America's history is all about What the book really does juxtaposed to stations in the country. One is what I thought it's not really left right. So much of it is unions versus disintegration is Do we even want to be a country anymore? If we do we have to have a shared philosophy rooted in the declaration of Independence have assured culture rooted Masonic institutions like churches. And school that values entrepreneurship adventure that values taking care of neighbor. And then if we and we all have a shared history, we have to have a belief that the United States actually an incredibly glorious place. That glorious place ought to be of help. If we don't have those things were gonna fall apart. I think that can be re invoke ated. You've seen Antifa. I mean, they don't. They don't seem to like you. They seem to show up with some of your speeches. Are you seeing their imprint on, especially over in Oregon in Seattle? Hundreds. I mean, you can see all the hall marks mean There's certain things you just look for visually raising both flags. You see the You see the red flags You see people who are dressed, own blast at the bicycle helmet and the goggles. You know this is it's perfectly obvious to everybody that he was deeply involved in very active in Portland for years reporter and you know, it has pointed out another action in Seattle as well. Look at what you're going to see right now. And this is the most predictable effect is a mass, a mass evacuation of major setting two years to see everybody who can afford to leave these nature city. But his major said, because who wants to live there? I want to pay inordinate taxes in order. Get shut down in 68 every night watcher business burnout. It doesn't come in a party today. I think figure I never sent right as a broadcast from New York City virtually alone. There is nobody here, Uh, Bank. Congratulations on the book. How to destroy American. Three Easy steps, continue to get the word out and continue not to take a step backwards. Thanks. Appreciate it.

It's a Major Award: Literary Medals and Prizes
"For today's episode. Yes I decided. I know that we're like we're kind of an award season. Yeah absolutely will talk about the Grammy's and the Oscars and all that stuff but I'm not talking about that and more highbrow highbrow. Today's episode is. It's a major award literary medals in prizes so ooh I don't think I know a lot about those great great. That's what I'm here for. Thank you so I feel like sometimes there's different there's different prices that are for specific genres of literature will cover those on their certain prestigious swans. There's ones that are for like a specific work published during a year or sometimes prizes honor a specific person and take into account their whole body of work. So it's not just like a book award. Sometimes it's just like an author award or -actly exactly in the field of literature so cool the first one. I'm sure everybody's heard of this won the Nobel Prize in Literature. Sure to this. Is that Swedish literature? Prize awarded Bennett ordered annually since nineteen o one It can be to an author from any country who has in the words of Swedish industrialist Alfred Nobel produced quote in the field of literature the most outstanding work in ideal direction so while individual works are sometimes cited as being particularly noteworthy. The award is actually based on an author's body of work as a whole so literature is one of the five Nobel prizes established by the will of Alfred Nobel in Eighteen ninety-five Lauren. I know you hate it when I do this year. Can you name me? Can you name me the other Nobel? Prizes okay Health and services. That's a cab. No there's is there medicine yes okay. There's Oh God chemistry biology astronomy. Shoot up down just naming science physics yes okay. And then one more big one engineering. No and the big won the Nobel Prize. Yes these species so the fit. Sorry I know. The five Nobel. Prizes are literature chemistry piece physics and physiology or medicine. Okay I'm economics is sometimes considered under the name of the Nobel prize but it was actually added by Sweden's central bank in nineteen sixty eight and is actually named Nobel's memory. It wasn't one of the original prices. Okay so it's kind of a with an asterisk. Yes okay okay. So for literature specifically Each year the Swedish Academy sends out requests for nominations of candidates and members of the academy who are members of Literature Academies insiders professors of literature and language often sometimes for former Nobel winners and president of freighters organizations. They're all allowed to nominate candidate. And you cannot nominate yourself By April that year the academy narrows the Field Down to about twenty candidates and then a month later. There's a shortlist of five names so for the next four months everybody everybody like on the panel is supposed to read and review all the works of all the candidates like like you got four months. You have to read every book this guy ever Bro. If I know anything about academics. It's that they're not going to do that. Really really tearing back the veil here exactly so by October that you remember how to vote and the candidate who receives more than half of the votes is named the Nobel laureate in literature so no one can actually get the prize without being on the list at least twice what's unclear and so many of the same authors reappear and are reviewed repeatedly over the years. Maybe that's how they get around having to read all that stuff because they're like. I did that three years ago. I'm not doing. I'm not doing that again. So the judges are composed of an eighteen member committee. Who are elected for life. Why up until two thousand eighteen? They were not technically permitted to leave. But I can crawl can carl. The Sixteenth Gustav Amend the rules of the academy and made it possible for members to resign if necessary but at a certain point. It was like you're on the committee for that's very ominous so a literature. Nobel Prize laureate earns a gold medal. A diploma with a citation and a sum of money. How much money you ask. The amount of money awarded depends on the income of the Nobel Foundation that year but for twenty one thousand nine hundred it was nine million Swedish krona equivalent to nine hundred thirty four thousand two hundred ninety dollars and ninety cents American. That's nothing to sneeze sneeze out my man. No one hundred twelve Nobel prizes in literature. I've been awarded between nineteen o one in two thousand nineteen to one hundred sixteen individuals that has been to a hundred men and fifteen women. Geez it's been actually shared between two individuals on four occasions and seven times. They decided not to award at anybody. So the laureates have been writing in twenty five different languages over time so it's not just like not just English not just Swedish. Whatever the youngest ever to receive the Nobel Prize in literature was registered kipling. Who was forty one years old when he was awarded it in nineteen? Oh seven and the oldest. Was Doris lessing? When she was eighty eight. Wow got it in two thousand seven. Two Writers have actually declined the prize. Boris Pasternak in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight and John Pulsar nineteen sixty four assaults right but the most recent winner. And that's in this whole episode. I'm going to go over the most recent because if we talked about everybody that's ever wanted a frigging a word. That'd be boring. It would be boring and fun but that would be so. I'm going to tell you about the most recent winner. Sometimes it's a twenty twenty word sometimes. It's twenty nineteen. Sometimes it might be a little earlier than that so so anyway. The most recent winner Nobel Prize for Literature Twenty Nineteen Peter Hannukah. Who is a German novelist? Playwright and poet For an influential work with linguistic ingenuity that has explored. The periphery in the specificity of human experience is how is they declared it? So Peterman Kiss for twenty one thousand nine. Was your most recent winner of the Nobel Prize in literature. Another big one is the Booker Prize for fiction. Yes okay so this. One is a literary prize awarded each year for the best original novel written in the English Language and published in the United Kingdom so the price was originally established as the Booker McConnell prize. After the company Booker McConnell Ltd began sponsoring the event in nineteen sixty nine and it became commonly known as the Booker Prize or simply the booker in two thousand and two. The title sponsor became the Investment Company. Man Group which opted to retain booker as part of the title calling it the man. Booker Prize from two thousand to twenty nineteen. So you've heard that I'm sure yes But the prize money awarded with the Booker Prize was originally about twenty one thousand pounds and subsequently raised to fifty thousand in two thousand two under the sponsorship of the man group making it one of the world's richest literary prizes in two thousand nineteen a new sponsor crank start announced it would sponsor the award for five years with the option to renew for another five so at that point they just changed the title to simply the Booker Prize because the crank start prize. No historically the winner of the Booker Prize had been required to be a citizen of the Commonwealth of Nations the Republic of Ireland or Zimbabwe but it was announced in September twenty thirteen that future booker prize awards would consider others from anywhere in the world so long as their work was in English and published in the UK stomachs. The winner is usually announced at a ceremony in London's Guildhall usually in early October nineteen ninety-three to mark the prizes twenty fifth anniversary. A Booker of Booker Prizes. Given so three previous judges the award met and they chose Salman Rushdie's midnight's children the nineteen eighty-one winner as the best novel out of all of the winners and in Twenty Eighteen to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary. The Golden Man Booker was awarded so one book from each decade was selected by a panel of judges and the winner by popular vote. Was the English

Because you're not ops or fill out forms before objectives are complete and do all this through objective is if you can plan but not make documents your master if you can help but not have to be in charge if you can prepare contingencies. As for the worst disaster and be ready if the worst comes to bare if you can check folks in account for them all but not depend on preprinted rosters or be ready at the last minute to change the plan and start again tomorrow in a brand new cycle if you can empower your units leaders and let them lead somewhat hands off and fail and have the crucial conversations and take doc ownership because your the boss if you can push yourself for the late night printings to prepare a finished product addict when all are asleep and lean on your section.

Where everyone's GonNa look to you and depend on you and that is a great thing but you have to be strong in your resolve and your knowledge in your skill set and understand that that things will change that the process could be messy but that you are going to be there and you were going to be strong and you were going to rely on your teammates and that you can step back and not have to dictate the plan but also keep people on track and communicate.

Why Can a Mongoose Take on a Cobra?
"Now available on the iheartradio APP. Or wherever you listen to podcasts. It will come to brainstorm a production of iheartradio. Hey brain stuff lauren. Vogel bomb here. There aren't very many animals out there that could could fight a King Cobra and eat it for dinner but a mongoose is one of them before we go any further. Let's talk about Mongoose. In general have you ever seen among us. There are twenty nine species of them and not all of them. Look the same but they are all long bodied short eared. SORTA weasley looking animals. They they aren't very closely related to weasels. Though if you're an animal in the order Carnivora which is the order of mammals are mostly carnivorous and have teeth adapted for flesh-eating you can either be on team dog or team cat. Weasels are related to dogs. And however much mongooses look like weasels they. We are firmly on team cat fact. A mere cat is a type of Mongoose and cat is right there in its name. Mungo says live in colonies and most species. He's live in Africa. Although one species the job and Mongoose has been introduced to Europe and is also wreaked havoc and ecosystems all of the world especially on islands like Hawaii. Puerto Rico and Jamaica although mongooses are small. They're bright feisty and what scientists call non-discriminatory predators. That is if they can catch or kill it. They'll eat it up to and including venomous snakes and an animal like that can do a lot of damage on an island. But how can it be. That Skinny Mongoose can take on one of the most venomous snakes in the world. Like the Hulking King Cobra whose venom can kill an adult human. And around thirty minutes the grudge match was popularized in Rudyard kipling's eighteen ninety four short story Rikki Tiki Tavee. But that's not the only time among us has contributed to popular popular culture a Hindu fable about among us in a snake dates back to at least three hundred. B C E in the nineteen thirties. A family on the Isle of Man claimed claimed talking Mongoose named Jeff Spelled. GEF by the way lived in their walls by turns threatening them protecting them. Killing rabbits for their dinner and telling jokes in the story became a tabloid sensation and the paranormal investigation. That resulted is the subject of a recent book called Jeff The strange tale of an extra special talking Mongoose News in the real world a few specialized traits have allowed Mongooses to add venomous snakes to their list of entrees for starters mongooses uses are quick and agile and have strong jaws and thick
"kipling" Discussed on South Of Richardson
"Good morning it's another addition of south abridged. Thank you so much for tuning lacking and all that good stuff this morning. We're going to be talking about how to understand the meaning over the gods of the copybook headings without falling prey to the wind-borne God's the marketplace workplace. Now if you've never heard of gods of the copybook heading it is a poem. By a man named regard kipling. We'll be getting into who exactly he is here in a minute. We'll be getting into what a copybook. Heading news what he really is into as a marketplace place. And then we'll get into how that fits into today's world and then there's is really cool reading of this guy who reads the poem. I'm not going and read it. I'm GONNA posted on the post so that you can read it but I'm not gonNA rated not going to bore you with that horrible rendition of it. So this guy that I found he reads it very very well. And he's got a really cool idea of how it all fits into so I'm just GonNa leave that up there and you guys get check it out so all right without any further third to do I'm GonNa go ahead and jump into the world has seen this before and they have in fact. This poem Gods of the copybook headings was written actually a hundred years ago. It was written in Nineteen nineteen earliest published in nineteen ninety so the world got to hear about a hundred years ago. This is twenty nine thing and we are here again in this same exact situation for Mr Kipling. It wasn't the progressives here in the United Stages Ages Progressives for him it was the Fabian Socialist. Fabian Socialists are the European version of progressivism. So what really cover today. Is who is regarded kipling. What is copybook heading at what he is referring to as a marketplace and log in a lot more so who who is rumoured kid lean? He is the man and legend. He's a journalist. Poet Short Story Writer He was He wrote while he wrote the jungle book. Kim before he wrote Gods of the copybook headings he was very popular in the late. Nineteenth Century and the early twentieth century was really really popular in England. And he's not not like that now all know he's in fact it's because of this poem The world was moving towards Kinsey. Ism All these nasty nasty progressive ideas. Fabian Socialist ideas and the this poem is totally against all of that and that put him in a very bad light. I'm he on wars. And everything is writing. And then he started writing this type of stuff who no longer have none of that now. If George Orwell called him a Jingo imperialist imperialist and a disgusting individual. Yeah so I mean that everybody knows or will was a devout communists if not just socialist but I think it was pretty much a devout oh communist and now all this started in World War One. Killing in the beginning of World War One was a huge supporter of the war. US support he wrote Pro War pamphlets pass them out all the streets. He was very very his writings for the pro war. Effort was very very popular so as the war progressed that the government asked to become a propagandist for him and he was right on board with it. Unfortunately for kipling that it didn't last all that long he realized when he got on board as a propagandist and seen on the inside he realized. Holy cow this is not working is not working well and he. Seeing the you'll these young kids are getting sent to the solder and no one at the top seemed to really give a shit they didn't care at all and he really did not you. It really really turned his stomach and was not into that at all so now let's go ahead. Let's let's get into what this poll gods of the copybook. Headings what what it means. So a Lotta people always ask. What is a copybook heading in? I like to call it the book a truce. The reason is that a copybook. Book I off a copybook is something that Kids in nineteenth century Europe would carry with them and it was just a notebook and at the top of it. It would have headings and those were the copybook headings and it dull. The heading toward were age old wisdom virtues. Y'All like water will let you fire will burn. And then what they do is in those books it would teach them how to write out. It would teach them how to write basically they just over and over and over again repeat writing water wet you water will wet water. Wet You on the next page fire. Fire will burn. Fire will burn and taught the kids how to write longhand in nets what it was basically four and they would just do that down the entire page and it helped him memorize well a truth. Water will watch you and fire literally will burn you and if you have never heard the poem you'll understand what that means in a bit. Now we're going to jump into what he meant by the marketplace. And we call that snakeskin snakeskin and what is the marketplace well this is the place it's ruled by dishonesty in morality it's everything it just represents selfishness. Reckless doc was progress and overindulgence at the end the perfect example of this would be Washington. DC after the two thousand eight crash. And I say this because every city in the United States was pretty much devastated. The only one that was pumping in and was they were just skyscraper scraper being built buildings going up everywhere. Roads being fixed in the only place that was happening Washington. DC wonder why that was it because that's a little snakes. Morality pieces of crap patrol. The money was being funneled to that. They stole. That's exactly what all that was. And and like I said nowhere else in the country was any that happening only in DC. kind of kind of weird. That works on now. Now he kipling is a man who did pay his pits after after he seeing what was going on and how no one really seem to care about war he sees at screw all at and quit all that and he literally spent the rest the remainder of his life after he fell out of the good graces of every the remainder of his life. He spent cleaning soldiers graveyards. That's that's his penance. That's the way. He felt that he had to repay those people that went to slaughter that he sent that he felt that he sent there because of his propaganda his pro writings add ad eight. He felt horribly horribly guilty about all that and to pay his penance for that he just decided that for the rest of his life he would clean. The soldiers graveyards all across Europe. And that's what he did pretty amazing pretty pretty pretty the Beijing individual. If you've never read the The poem I'm GonNa I'M GONNA put it in the post read. It definitely read it. If you don't feel really go check out this youtube video of glennbeck reading it is outstanding. And he's got a really cool version of what he thinks. It means to fascinating just fascinating so mixed up. I think you should read or have your kids. Listen to this poem. Then explain to them why it is important that we learn from people like because he's lived this he knows exactly what is what was going on if he was alive. He'd be like Shit people when you do. Oh It's right here dude I wrote it. You just need to read that in. Follow that you know Air Force. Follow your tech data. There's intact data. You need to follow when you devote that. So it's clear to reading and listening to this amazing piece of history. That Mr Kipling Watts is society. He was living in uprooted itself from common sense and I decided that everything. That glittered was gold. A century has gone by. We find ourselves again doing battle with the gods of the marketplace. Will this time be the last time the evil and immorality claims the last foothold of freedom. Let's hope not and I hope you guys enjoyed. It was a lot of fun to do Now if you like I said you gotta go check out this this. This poem is just outstanding. So please go check it out like share. Those with your friends vig never heard it it. It's it's enlightening gene. All right you guys have great. Whatever today is Tuesday? We'll see how by..
Explainer 178: The curious case of President Berdymukhamedov
"The opportunity to read one's own obituary is a privilege accorded to few perhaps unsurprisingly it can be a transformative formative experience alfred. Nobel inventor of dynamite was mortified to see himself memorialized a merchant of death. It may have been this. It's premature a review of his life's work that inspired him to bequeath the nobel prizes including one for peace marcus garvey the prominent jamaican activist activists was so enraged by his errand early obituaries that he suffered the stroke which actually killed him rudyard kipling mistakenly reported dead by one sloppy journal contented himself with writing in to cancel his subscription so we should sympathize somewhat impossibly for the last time with president gurban guli berdymukhamedov of turkmenistan who earlier this week was proved conclusively alive after some while of doubt about whether or not he was still with us act president berdymukhamedov office since two thousand and seven was photographed indisputably above ground the caspian economic forum in nevada a resort on turkmenistan's caspian sea coast the era of might and happiness as president berdymukhamedov rule is officially known precedes seeds the greatly exaggerated demise of president berdymukhamedov allegedly from kidney failure seems to have become popular currency last month. A russian news agency reported the story apparently via a eurasian affairs blog who claimed to have heard it from a source in business circles in the turkmen capital of ashkhabad who may or may not have been tipped off by a spook working for turkmenistan's intelligence services though any any journalist who pitched the editor story with this level of sourcing would find themselves retreating beneath a barrage of coffee mugs and explosives no such fact checking protocols inhibits social media which was briefly ablaze with elegies to president berdymukhamedov few of them. It has to be said especially sorrowful from turkmenistan's government. There was tantalizing silence. The last confirmed sighting of the president had been in mid-july when he was shown on state television writing a book. He is believed to be working on a history of the central asian shepherd dog and beaming at a video of one.

"You. But none too much. If you can feel the unforgiving minute with sixty seconds worth of distance run. Yours is the earth and everything that's in it, and which is more. You'll be a man, my son. And that, of course, is the classic poem which is called if and it's by Richard Kipling. And of course we have covered some of his less. I guess famous has less famous poems on this podcast, we covered infantry columns. Which a lot of people don't know the name infantry columns, but that's the the the poem that talks about boots, boots, boots, moving up and down. Yeah, that one. We read the young British soldier which is about Afghanistan. We wrote, we read a bit of Tommy, and of course Kipling. Was a incredible writer, and he talked a lot about war talked a lot about being a man and his own son, his one son, John was killed in World War One at the battle of lose and. These are great poems. And I recently read a poem. Called mental cases by Wilfred Owen. And when we got done with that podcast, I actually said I should have read it again that I did notice that go back to the beginning and listen to the game, but I should have actually picked it apart a little bit because it's kinda like what I said about Shakespeare. When we did Henry the fifth. And I said, you can't get frustrated with Shakespeare, you. You can't think that you're just going to read Shakespeare to get it. It doesn't. It doesn't work that way. There's more to it than that. There's more depth there. There's word you might not know. There's references that might not be obvious. There's an, it's it's the same thing. When you look at poems like this, there's. More to them than you can get with just like reading it, right. There's there's layers, lose what we're talking about. So. The poem that I just read, if is it? Like I said, it's a classic thread often it should be read, but there's and that's part of the reason why I didn't cover it for a long time. 'cause I kinda thought everyone just knew it, but everyone. Oh, yeah, everyone knows that everyone knows that poem. Everyone's read that pump is actually not true. Talk to a lot of people and it's it's like if and they said, what's that? So in order to sort of solve that problem, we cover on the podcast and now people will hear this poem and learn from it. And I'm going to spend a little bit of time breaking it down because there's all kinds of important lessons in it that are really solid, really solid guidance. And then when we understand it, then I'll go back and read it again the way it's supposed to hit you when you know what's going on. So breaking it down a little bit. There's there's themes in this that we've heard opt talked about and they're just consistent th-through time. So here it starts off if you can keep your head when all about you're losing theirs and blaming it on you does this one's pretty self explanatory? Keep you don't.

"Richard, what's your favorite story on story? Nori? That's such a tough question. John. I've read so many stories, myths and poems over the past ten years for story that is not easy to pick a favorite. Of course, Astro pop is very close to my heart, and I get so excited when Bertie sends me a new Astro pop story, and I get to be the first person to read what is going to happen next in the series. That is very cool. But if I had to pick a favorite and it would be between office and the liar written by birdie and the cats that walks by himself by Rudyard Kipling with all us, Burti changed the Greek myth to a rhyming poem.
