"I think as a reader all along what I was waiting for was to see how the film or how her appearances in their lives change them. I was waiting for the film to grant these characters some kind of absolution. And it doesn't. Or maybe it does for a time, but that's it. Do they need absolution? They may not need it, but who doesn't want it? Who doesn't want it, right? Yeah, that's what drove me to keep reading. In my reading, I'm thinking about him showing up at these times of change or transition. And obviously, in the movie, the character is at a final transition point between life and death. And then in the movie, it's a slippery is in the story because you don't entirely know if mister badi dies, but you do know that he doesn't die because he shows up in this afterlife of the film. Making it clear that everything you've just seen was illusory or fictional. Yeah, I think there's a line in the story, is it life comes rushing back or something? In that ending and I think that's a perfect description of it. When we get to the scenes of the production, it does feel like someone just let the air and the sun shine in. Very much at the end. And it feels like a sigh of relief. Or something? Maybe that's why Rome leaves the movie theater feeling so elated. Except it doesn't mean that her father's not going to die. It doesn't mean that they're her father isn't going to die, but the movie gestures towards there's more. There's more after this. And I think that message came to her at the right time. Even though she diminishes the film later. Maybe she just doesn't need it later. Yeah, she doesn't need it later. Why do you think we end with that idea that, you know, when the thunder and lightning stop, the screen doesn't turn black, you can still see rain. That's a beautiful image. Does it say something about the story?

"I don't know. I am completely swept up when both Rome and the narrator give their reactions to the film and I'm completely swept up with what they're thinking about as they process the film. And I'm also completely swept up when Rome becomes very skeptical and kind of diminishes the film towards the end. I guess I'm swept up in all three cases and I believe all three cases. Similar to how something I might have loved when I was in my 20s or as a teenager might seem silly to me now or that they were used as sort of a crutch at the time for what I needed to go through and now having gone through some darker periods. I can look back and maybe feel more skeptical about those artworks like Guam onto. I mean in a way romy's final take is a positive one because she's saying all of these life-changing things were actually our own doing. And not the work of a mystical figure in a movie or a man that we met. I believe both versions I believe that they drew that they drew power and energy and from the film and from seeing or shoddy and I believe that they also summoned it from themselves too. I think they're not mutually exclusive.

"The next morning I woke to banging on the door. Romy had had a sense that something was wrong and I tried to call, but I hadn't picked up all night. Still woozy. I started to cry again. Seeing the state I was in, she went into high gear, boiling tea, laying me out on the couch and cleaning up my face. She held my hand, her other palm resting on her own throat, as if my pain were her pain, and she felt everything and understood everything. Two months later, I quit the company. I enrolled in graduate school at NYU, but stayed on in Tel Aviv through the summer. And flew back only days before the start of the semester. Rome had met a mere by then an entrepreneur 15 years older than her with so much money that he spent most of his time looking for ways to give it away. He wooed romy with the same singular drive he applied to everything he wanted. A few days before my flight roaming through a goodbye party for me at our favorite restaurant. And all the dancers came and our friends and most of the boys we had slept with that year. Amir didn't come because he was busy, and the following day roaming left for Sardinia on his yacht. I packed up my things alone. I was sad to leave and wondered if I'd made a mistake. For a while we stayed in close touch. Romi got married, moved to Amir's mansion on a cliff above the Mediterranean and got pregnant. I studied for my degree and fell in love and then out of it a couple of years later. In the meantime, romi had two children, and sometimes she sent me photos of those boys whose faces were hers and seemed to borrow nothing from their father. But we were in touch less and less, and then whole years past in which we didn't speak at all. One day soon after my daughter was born, I was passing a cinema on 12th street, and I felt someone's gaze, and when I turned, I saw or shot his eyes staring at me from the poster for taste of cherry. I felt a shiver up my spine. The screening had already passed, but no one had taken down the poster. I took a photo of it, and that night I sent it to Rome, reminding her of a plan we'd once hatched to go to Tehran, me with a fresh American passport without Israeli stamps. And her with the British one she'd had through her father to sit in the cafes and walk the streets that were the setting of so many films we loved to taste life there, and lie on the beaches of the Caspian Sea. We were going to find or shoddy, who we imagined would invite us into the sleek apartment he had designed himself and listened while we told him our stories. And then tell us his own while we drink black tea with a view of the snow capped hell bears mountains. In the letter, I had admitted to her the reason that I cried the night she told me about the encounter with her shoddy.

"He was possessive, which was part of why their relationship had ended in the first place. And now that she had been with other men since they had broken up, he was even more jealous and obsessive. I wouldn't stop pushing her to tell him what it had been like with them. But the sex they had was hard and good, and she found it bracing after the months of feeling as though she had no body. As though her father's failing body were the only body there was. At night, after Mark came home from work, Rome would go to his place, and in the darkened bedroom he would scroll through a pornography until he found what he was looking for. And then would fuck her as she lay on her stomach, and they watched two or three men penetrating one woman on the massive screen of his TV, pushing their dicks into her pussy and her ass and her mouth. Everyone breathing and moaning and surround sound. Just before he came, Mark would slap romi hard on the ass. Thrusting himself into her and calling her a whore, enacting some ancient pain that drove him to believe that the woman he loved would never remain true to him. One night after this performance, Mark had fallen asleep with his arms around her. And Rome had lain awake for exhausted as she always was. She couldn't sleep. Finally, she should meet out from under him and crawled around on the floor in search of her underwear. Having no desire to stay and no desire to go, she'd sunk back down on the edge of mark's bed and felt the remote control under her. She switched on the TV and surfed the channels, passed over the stories of mother elephants and bee colonies that she had watched with her father. Over the cold cases and the late night talk shows until there, nearly filling the enormous screen, was her shotty face. For a second, it appeared larger than life in the otherwise dark room. And then it was lost again because her thumb had continued its restless search before she realized what she was seeing. When she flipped back, she couldn't find him. There was nothing on about film or I ran or kirsty. She sat there, startled and bewildered in the dark. And then slowly a sense of longing came over her like a wave. And she started to laugh for the first time since her father died, and she knew it was time to go home. There was no choice but to believe from me. Her story was so precise that she couldn't have made it up. Sometimes she exaggerated the details, but she didn't believe in the exaggerations. And this only made her more lovable because it showed you what she could do with the raw material of the world. And yet after I went home and the spell of her presence wore off, I lay on my bed feeling sad and empty and increasingly depressed. Since not only was my encounter with her shoddy, not unique, but worse, unlike Rome, I had no idea what it meant, or what I was supposed to do with it. I had failed to understand anything or take anything from it, and I told the story as a joke laughing at myself. Lying alone in the dark I started to cry. Thick of the pain throbbing in my ankle, I swallowed a handful of advil in the bathroom. The pills swilled in my stomach with the wine I drunk and soon enough nausea overtook me. And then I was kneeling on the bathroom floor of throwing up into the toilet.

"Because when I came around the bend the path was empty and the trees black and bear. Back of the real calm, hunched on the tatami floor, I searched online. But there was no news about homayun or shoddy. Nothing to suggest he was traveling in Japan or no longer alive. My doubt only grew on the flight back to Tel Aviv. The plane glided above a great shelf of clouds and the farther it got from Japan, the less possible it seemed that the man had actually been or shoddy. Until at last it seemed absurd, just as kimonos and Japanese toilets and etiquette and tea ceremonies, which it all possessed irrevocable genius and Kyoto at a distance grew absurd. The night after I got back to Tel Aviv, I met romy at a bar. I told her about what happened in Japan, but in a laughing way, laughing at myself for believing for even a moment that it was actually or shoddy, I'd seen and run after. As I told the story, her large eyes became larger. With all the drama of the actress that she is, romy lifted a hand to her heart and called the waiter to refill her glass, touching his shoulder and the instinctive way she has of drawing others into her world. Under the spell of her intensity. Eyes locked with mine to remove her cigarettes from her bag lit one and inhaled. She reached across the table and laid her hand over my hand.

"It was then that I saw him, making his way along the covered walkway in the opposite direction. He looked older and his wavy hair had turned silver, making his dark eyebrows seem even more severe. Something else was different, too. In the film, it had been absolutely necessary to project an impression of his physical solidity, which cure Sami had done by keeping the camera closely trained on his broad shoulders and strong torso as he drove through the hills outside to ram. But even when her shoddy had got out of the car, the gaze of the arid hills and the camera had hung back at a distance. He had appeared physically formidable, and this had given him an authority that, combined with the depth of feeling in his eyes, had made me want to weep. But as he continued down the covered walkway, a shoddy looked almost slender. He'd lost weight, and it was more than that. It seemed that the width of his shoulders had contracted. Now that I was seeing him from behind, I began to doubt that it was a shoddy. But just this disappointment began to pour into me like concrete. The man stopped and turned as if someone had called to him. He stood very still looking back at the zen garden, where the stones were meant to symbolize tigers, leaping toward a place they would never reach. A soft light fell on his expressionless face. And there it was again, the brink of hopelessness. At that moment I was filled with an overwhelmingly tender feeling that I can only call it love. Gracefully, or shoddy turned the corner, unlike me, he had no trouble moving in those slippers. I started to go after him, but one of the kimono women blocked my path. She was waving and gesturing at the group, which was now peering into one of the shadowy rooms of the Abbott's house. I don't speak Japanese, I explained trying to get around her, but she kept hopping in front of me, gibbering away and pointing with more and more insistence at the group, which had now begun to move down

"She began to scream with laughter. If she could have fallen off her seat, she would have, but the room had no seats at all. Instead, she stuffed the wrapping for my hot towel into the gaping sleeve of her kimono, but very beautifully. So that one could forget the fact that she was disposing of garbage. On our last morning in Japan I got up early and went out with a map. I wish I had marked the temples I wanted to visit. Everything was still stripped and bare. Not even the plum trees were in blossom yet. So there was nothing to bring out the hordes with their cameras, and I got used to being mostly alone in the temples in the gardens, and to a silence that was only deepened by the loud cawing of crows. So it was a surprise when having passed through the monumental entrance gate of nanzen Ji. I ran into a large group of Japanese women chatting happily and sing song fashion on the covered walkway that led to the Abbott's residence. They were all outfitted and elegant silk kimonos, and everything about them from the ornate inlaid combs in their hair to their gathered obi belt and their pattern drawstring purses was of another age. The only exception was the dull brown slippers on their feet. The same kind offered at the entrance of every temple and Kyoto, all of which were tiny and reminded me of the shoes that Peter rabbit lost in the lettuce patch. I tried them myself the day before shoving my feet into them and gripping with my toes while attempting to slide across the smooth wooden floors, but after almost breaking my neck trying to climb stairs in them. I'd given up and taken to walking across the icy planks in my socks. This made it impossible to ever get warm and shivering in my sweater and coat. I wondered how the women didn't freeze wearing only silk. And whether assistance was needed to tie and wrap and secure all the necessary parts of their kimonos.

"And so I found myself watching a lot of films lying on my back with my foot up. I saw everything with Sean Louis Trenton new until he got so old that his eminent death began to be too depressing. And then I switched to Louis garrell, who was beautiful enough to live forever. Sometimes when my friend romi wasn't working, she came to watch with me. By the time I finished with Carl, it was winter and swimming was out of the question anyway. So I spent two weeks inside with Ingmar Bergman. When the new year started, I resolved to give up Bergman and the weed I spoke every night. And because the title was appealing and it was made far from Sweden. I downloaded tastes of cherry by the Iranian director Abbas kirsti. The film opens with the actor home arachidis face. He plays mister body, a middle aged man driving slowly through the streets of Tehran. In search of someone scanning crowds of men clamoring to be hired for labor. Not finding what he's looking for, he tries on. Into the arid hills outside the city. When he sees a man on the edge of the road, he slows the car and offers him a ride. The man refuses, and when body continues to try to convince him the man gets angry and stocks off, looking back darkly over his shoulder.

"We're going to hear seeing our shoddy by Nicole Krause, which was published in The New Yorker in March of 2018. What I knew of love had always stemmed from desire from the wish to be altered or thrown off course by some uncontrollable force. But in my love for a shoddy, I nearly didn't exist beyond that great feeling. The story was chosen by ling ma, the author of the novel severance, and the story collection bliss Montage, which came out in September. Heinlein, welcome to the podcast. Hi, Deborah. Thank you for having me. Yeah, so why did you choose a story by Nicole crafts to read today? Well, I think, I think I picked singer shoddy because I don't actually understand it. It's a little bit mysterious to me and it feels like a riddle. I also think it describes this feeling very well, which occurs maybe more when you're younger, sort of encountering a work of art at the right time can seem like this Supernatural sort of intervention. And that often happens when you're young, but also maybe during times of grief when you're already sensitized. And there's sort of a melancholic heir to this story that I also liked. The story involves a character who sees a movie or rather an actor in a movie who makes it enormous impression on her and her life. Has something similar happen to you? Yes. All the time. Not with taste of cherry, although that's one of my husband's favorite films. But yeah, other films, other pieces of artwork that I kind of try to keep in my mind, like amulets that are able to kind of carry me through difficult times in my life. And yeah, I think the story captures that need very well. Have there been particular works of art that did that for you? Well, one of my favorite artworks is one of Felix Gonzalez Torres piles of candy. The title, well, they're all untitled, but in parentheses, I think it's portrait of Ross in LA. And what is it? What is it meant for you? Well, the pile of candy is calibrated to the artist's lover who passed of aids. And it's calibrated to the Glover's weight. And the museum goers are allowed to take candy from it and slowly the piled diminishes.

They can't get knocked out of the market. Because if you do that, you're going to miss the opportunity. Talk about the overall structure of the paradigm as it were of investing. We are going. It looks like from a world low inflation low rates into higher inflation and perhaps significantly higher rates. At the same time, there was a good long period of time when it was basically there was no alternative, so people went into a lot of alternates. A lot of riskier things. What happens in this new world? Because it's not like the old world necessarily. Yeah, you know, that's spot on. And in fact, we all know the Tina acronym. There is no alternative. It served us well. Probably from the great financial crisis through the pandemic, we saw a lot of investors pushed out the risk curve in order to get that return that they were seeking. And of course, as a rates rose pretty rapidly through 2022, what we did see is a lot of more speculative parts of the market have started to see the air let out of those tires as well. Think about the spac market earlier this year. The meme stock market, even crypto to some extent. We've seen large compression valuations, large downturn in values overall in a lot of those more speculative bubbles. And in fact, that probably sets us up for a more interesting time in the next ten years. The one nice thing that's happened over this kind of downturn in markets this year is that valuation compression has come in beyond what we've typically seen historically. So the S&P P E multiple, for example, has come down over 25%. This year already. So the valuation correction in our view has likely already happened. And that sets us up nicely, but to your point, in an environment where it will probably not return to zero rates, but with growth at 2%, inflation hopefully returning somewhere in that two to 3%. Yields may also be somewhere in that two to 3% range. And so in that scenario, you think about discounting your cash flows at a higher rate. And so really, that does put more pressure to prove your business models, especially those business models that expect cash flows in the out years. But the more steady parts of the market that have proven business models that have proven cash flows, those valuations are starting to look attractive here. And I think that's really what investors will have to think about in this new environment. Thank you so much. It was really great to have you both with us as a Peter Krauss of aperture investors and Mona mahajan

Hugh Ross: Even Atheist Scientists Concede Deism Can't Be Ruled Out
"In the latest books being published by atheists astronomers and physicists, they're all conceding that D is and can not be taken off the scientific table. I mean, even Lawrence Krauss in his book on Nate said statement and his book a universe from nothing. And so they're coming to the recognition that there must be a causal agent beyond space and time that's engaged. But how I speak to my peers, as I say, well, it's not just that attribute of God that the fine tuning reveals. It reveals dozens of distinct personal attributes of the creator. And to see those attributes, we really need to look at all the disciplines of science and their sub disciplines. And so I get to meet a physical scientist. It doesn't concede that the really is overwhelming fine tuning evidence. But I encourage them. You need to look beyond what you know to look at the rest of the fine tuning data that we have and recognize this is revealing, not just one attribute of that causal agent, but multiple attributes and is leaving you no other option than that the God of the Bible created the universe and personally designed it so we can exist on this planet.

"One of the things that struck me was in 1980 you have here, there were I'm looking up the number here. 28 private equity firms. In 1980, and today there are more than 9200 firms managing $7 trillion. So while I knew it had grown, I'm not sure I knew who had grown that much. Hi, David. Thanks for having me. Yeah, and that's really the crux of it because private equity, you know, there was a time when private equity was a very small club of well to do investors. And today, it's found its way into almost everything. I mean, a lot of banks offer it in their offering to high net worth individuals. That's relatively well known. But also public pensions and endowments have relatively aggressive applications to private equity. In some cases, as much as a third of their portfolio. So there's a lot of money invested in private equity and that has implications if private equity were to go through some sort of winner, which it has not gone through in the last four decades since the 1980s, that would have ramifications that would go well beyond the industry itself. Now, a lot of people were urged to go into private equity when they were as a search for yield. When you couldn't get yield other places and the yields being represented as potential were pretty extraordinary, actually. Why was it so good for so long? Well, private equity is enjoyed, I would say an ideal environment in the last four decades. A few things. One is you had a situation where interest rates in the 1970s and 1980s were exceptionally high, the highest they had ever been. And in the last four decades, they've gone from high the highest ever to the lowest ever. I mean, we hit record lows a couple of years ago. So you have this three decade long bull market in bonds or interest rates are going down. The reason that's important for private equity is private equity borrows a lot in order to buy. It's a highly levered equity position. And so when interest rates are going down, you can borrow more cheaply and you can refinance and that's great for that's great for returns. But also private equity, you know, as you mentioned at the outset, David was a very sparse space. So there weren't many players, and so if you were a manager in private equity, you had your pick of deals, valuations were low, you could buy high quality companies cheaply. And over time, as people have come in, you could sell your positions at ever higher prices. And so the backward looking returns for private equity were incredible. I mean, you know, four to 6% a year better than public markets. And of course, investors seeing this said to themselves, well, we want a piece of that. And so money poured in. And that, of course, success fed success. Now you have a completely different situation where interest rates are starting to go up, valuations are high, private equity has more money than it has deals to chase. And so the forward looking returns are probably not going to be as good. Well, and you may not know what the returns are. We had Peter Krauss on from aperture investors on Wall Street week on Friday, and he raised this point on his own saying, we're seeing how bad the markets are doing in terms of the public markets, but there's not mark to market for private equity, so the values probably, he said, have gone down, maybe even appreciably, but we don't know it. Well, that's what's interesting about private equity is that during the last, we've had two bear markets in the last before this one that we're in now. In the last 15 years, during the financial crisis, it went on long enough that private equity was forced to reckon with declining asset prices in general. During the last one, though, in the spring of 2020 during the early days of the pandemic, it lasted so short that private equity never had to look. This one, we know we're going on if we say this bear market that we're currently and started in January, we're going on month 7. If this goes on for weeks longer, private equity is going to be forced to look at its positions and say, you know, these positions have gone down. That will start to ripple through the industry. And then the question is, what will be investors reaction? The financial crisis in general wasn't that long, 9 months, let's just say, and so the asset prices recovered before investors had to do anything. But if we get a downturn that lasts longer, two to three years something that looks like the dot com, then you might have some exits from private equity and then that could be a problem. Well, exits, that's easier said than done in a lot of private equity, at least from my experience. I mean, it's different from owning a bond that's publicly traded or a stock. Typically, you're locked up for sometimes as long as 7 years. That's right. And that's the one thing that might help them, but it'll start, I think, to the extent that investors sour on private equity. Either because of these headwinds that we're talking about or because there's an extended winner. The first thing that will happen is the allocations will stop going to private equity. In other words, I think investors will say, you know, rather than having a third of our portfolio in it, let's reduce that exposure. 25%, 20%. That will be problematic in and of itself because it's this rush of new money into private equity that's allowing the exits for existing investors. In other words, it's allowing private private equity to sell its existing businesses and return capital to investors. If that new capital doesn't come in, query where those transactions come from. But that could lead to further problems where investors not only say we don't want to allocate more to private equity. But now we're going to pressure our managers to look for exits and if those exits don't are not there at a profit, then investors might even be willing to take those exits at a loss. And that's what I, that's what I'm concerned about. I'm concerned about the situation where investors put pressure on managers to say, look, we want our money back and we're willing to take a bath in order to get it. And that, of course, creates an unwind mechanism in the industry itself. So bear in mind, this is Bowser power. This is where we think, how much of this is complicated, the fact that private equity is largely unregulated. This is not like a regulated fund. Well, this is one of the things that concerns me. I mean, we don't, you know, if this, again, if this were

"Krauss, the new record raised the roof, the song is called go your way. And this is their first album together since the one they did back in 2007 raising sand. That one was so surprising and beautiful and brilliant and this one really is too 15 years later. It's just as surprising and brilliant. When raising sand came out, Robin, it really changed the way that people approached roots music. You know, approached what we call, I guess Americana by turning it kind of, I don't know, weird is that appropriate to say the critic real Marcus has this phrase the old, weird America, which is just all about viewing history and historical music, not as just like corny or traditional, but as a live with spiritual energy and mysteriousness. That's what plant and Krauss get to. But there's a lot of thought that goes behind these recordings and Robert Plant and Alison Krauss exchanged possible songs to sing together for all of those 14 years that they weren't working together. And I love how this record goes its way into the world beyond with the last one did. Although, if you like the last one, you'll like this one too. He obviously gets a very huge lift from her on these songs and her voice. But man, if ever there was an old rocker whose voice I would assume would be completely shot by now. And he has found a way to keep connecting with new music even now as he's in his 70s and just he sounds so good. It's really inspiring. I mean, credit to Alison Krauss. She says, really great on these songs. And she is just as one of the greatest contemporary bluegrass artists she she's all about harmonizing, you know? She's all about having a voice that connects and melds with other voices. While still having its own distinctiveness, but you're totally right about Robert Plant. And I feel that in the arrangements here, they worked with T bone Burnett again on this project, and they brought in an incredible band here at sound Emporium in Nashville. The arrangements really make these songs while gentle, just massively expansive. Robert Plant and Alison Krauss raised the roof is their new record together. Thanks so much, Ann. I was a pleasure Robin. And from Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, let's go to a new one out today from the producer Apollo Brown and the rapper stalley. It's called blacklight. Feel like the world on my shoulders and I can't hold it, no longer. Even though the pressure is on me, can let it flop on my focus. I'm getting closer for another breath and large groups feeling like I'm by myself and I got too much pride to ever ask for help. I'm getting closer running down the breath. Exhausted, thoughts running like a faucet, just whisking up and chasing down my conscience lately my thoughts been Duncan monstrous a good and equal in my head informed the marshmallow. I'm like, Atlas with the world on my shoulders, fellers lonely, a lot of pressure on me. I just hope they don't notice masking it for years, trying to prepare to the public act like I don't care but really fear if they don't love it, and that's just being real 'cause for real, I really does it. Every word in blood, nothing in pain that's so my mother, I'm so searched for myself before the cover revealed to the world I'm the one and ain't no love. Sometimes it feels out when there's no one you can relate to. Like no one understands and everybody just hates you. And you want to run your hackers the loneliness won't escape you and everything that's different about you what's all that made you feel like the world on my shoulder. This is Apollo Brown install either album together is called black light, the song we're hearing from it is called breathe. And John, Apollo Brown and producer, staley, a rapper and songwriter, they've worked together before on other projects, but I thought this one was particularly inspired and inspiring. Yeah, absolutely. Apollo Brown, you know, straight out of Detroit. He's really at this point I would say like one of the best producers working right now. He makes these gorgeous sample based beats, a lot of soul in his music and stali is also probably one of the best at his craft. He's definitely one of the dopest MCs out working. And this album blacklight is really fantastic to see a great duo combination of an MC working with a producer whose music feels tailored to his style. Yeah. They do this interesting thing on the title cut black light. They do a play on the meaning where you know a black light can reveal things that the visible light can't normally show. But here they're talking about black light is looking at things through the lens of the black experience. And kind of like seeing things as they are, they do return back to that metaphor and spin outward on that metaphor throughout the record. And stali is interesting on this record because listening to it, what immediately struck me was that his words his style is economical. He's not doing a whole bunch of flashy technical stuff as an MC. But his words have so much gravity. Right. There's this song on here called no monsters where he builds out this metaphor about childhood monsters under the bed and fear, but he also ties it into a story about growing up in the streets. You know, and there's this gorgeous song on here called lost angels. That's all about grief and losing people around you. The music here is introspective, but it's not like naval gezi. Humility is also a recurring theme on the record. There's a song called humble wins where he talks about well, it's actually kind of funny because at the top of the track, he's talking about how amazing he is and how he's the greatest. But it's so sarcastic, right? I mean, he's really taking a jab at all the rappers who do think they're awesome and endlessly brag about it. But you know, he says, there's nothing wrong with a quiet victory. Yeah. Apollo Brown and staley the record together is called blacklight. Thanks so much, John. Thank you, Robin.

"This water to be utilized body. People are falsely believing. Is that while. I just drink mineral water. Because then i get my minerals in you and i both know that those are in organic minerals. That's basically ground up. Dirt rocks and our human body is not designed to metabolize dirt and rocks those minerals have an electron spin. That's quite different in the minerals that we get from leafy vegetables which have a different again electrical configuration and the electron spin in a different direction. And we have to always remember that the human body is a machine that looks for the right electron spin to create the energy that we need and so getting just inorganic minerals. Does basically we're excreting. They're worthless they're valueless. People that take a lot of vitamins and minerals in dill form for example. Don't realize that a lot of those minerals are inorganic manmade minerals. And they're not gonna help the human body at all so again getting bobick minerals plant as minerals. We have a line of of plant basement minerals as well. That's the best way to provide the nutrition that we need for the by. Yeah it's like again. We follow nature. Like if we just create like i can influence like you know. Have all these alkaline waters. And all of that stuff. How i could sodium bicarbonate you and i could tell made a lot of money on a high water or throw in magnesium sit trade or whatever we want so magnesium water and all of that is against size matter is as it relates and also the conduction matters as you were discussing size of the molecules cellular respiration and hydration all of that matters and the kind of cells that are better used. And that's the most important thing i mean. I don't know if you know. But i went to a water conference. In two thousand eighteen some of the top scientists in the world met one of the top virologist you discovered an hiv molecule. Dr luke montier. I couldn't even follow these guys. The science was so far beyond what i could even grass. It was humbling exciting at the same time. Well a lot of these scientists. Obviously they're very much into their profession and to their specialty. But you can always get them if you ask them just made it simple for me. Just make it simple you know. What do i need to do. What do i need for. Example you and your podcast. What i need to tell my followers to do and they'll always come down to the basics and you pointed it out good raw fruits and vegetables. Why because they have the right nutrition for the human by drink. Lots of pure water. Don't drink in a water. That's been distilled because even though it may be pure. It acts leaches minerals from your body. When you drink drink reverse osmosis water and re mineralized it if you can you know if you have a source with plant based minerals get a lot of rest reduce your stress and getting as much oxygen as you possibly can. I know that seemed like a lot. But that's about as simple as you can make it. I mean those basics you will cover ninety nine percent of your issues if you just go those basic things right. That's what we run. A emphasize people have a lot of control within them. So do so amazing. I've been so just grateful to have known you over his last twenty years in you've just steadfast charging in this space and being an innovator and dedicating your is to getting this out in the world and i just want to give my gratitude for you for doing that.

You know it's. It's really not a vitamin but it's so important that it is the vitamin to our mind. Well without a doubt people check that allow check out your supplements. Check out the book in learn because once you learn you have power and it's also good for the brain.

"Oxygen is for the brain because obviously there's many things to anxiety and stress and mental illness bites. If you don't have foundational parameters and protocols that are giving you foundational things like oxygen starved the brain of oxygen and obviously if you acutely starve it. You're dead if you do it starving it over time. That's gonna derail things so talk to me about that importance. You know you pointed it out and i think it's great to really talk about the brain. Human brain is amazing it. Most people don't realize that when we are born or born with about eighty billion neurons in our brain they never increase what we are born with is it were healthy. What we die with. Unfortunately that's not the case because over time the cells in our brain die. it's just the process. It's the aging process it primarily caused by free radicals but it can be caused by brain damage. Stress poor nutrition in all kinds of other things can affect our brain. That's why anything we can do to keep. The brain healthy is like critical nutrients. You pointed out eating the right fruits and vegetables that have a proper minerals are absolutely critical for the brains. Help having an adequate supply of oxygen. And you mentioned earlier that twenty five percent of the oxygen that we breathe every breath that we take twenty five percent goes here you can go without food for how long forty days you can go without water for about seven. How long can you go without. Oxygen two three four minutes when that happens the brain dies and we lose billions of cells. When that happens. I have a note here groups that every second of the day. This is kind of scary. But every second of the day thirty two thousand neurons. Die in your brain okay. I'm switch pretty astounding that works out to. I just want the numbers down the mouth at one point. Nine million. Every minute okay. A body can't replace them. No fortunately we got a big mass of rain sills here and we don't use them all and the body does try to adapt to try to use some brain cells to compensate for the ones that it's losing but we're constantly losing no cells so anything we can do to keep that nutrition anything we to keep the oxygen up and anything we can do to reduce stress. I think stress is probably the biggest killer brain cells that we can possibly imagine and again that's partly lifestyle or the foods we do talk about relationships. We joke and we call it toxic relationships. Actually that's really a viable term because it is toxic to the brain it is toxic to the human body. So that's kind of a wanting to share that with you and this environment that we're in right now. Every one of us is under stress in ways that it's never been here. I never had a pandemic stress before. And it's just here so my philosophy and all of that is yeah. You have to gather enough information. God forbid we can't even validate information hardly anymore but that being said my philosophy is double down. Triple down on those things that you can control. So it's more important to exercise and move your body and breathe and challenger respiratory system. It's more important to eat even better but we can definitely use this time to actually get healthier and healthier and healthier and obviously obesity heart disease all of that stuff at the core of all of that stuff you're dehydrated. You don't have oxygen. You're not eating well. And all of that is a result of the environment that was created over overtop. Absolutely i wanted originally Something that i got at harvard university's medical school. You know. they have a obviously a great medical program. There and i love this quote. I just wanted to share it with you and it's it's goes think about it. Your brain is always on it. Takes care of your thoughts and movements breathing and heartbeat your senses. It works hard. Twenty four seven. Even while you're asleep this means. Your brain requires a constant supply of fuel and oxygen. That you'll comes from the food you eat. And what's in that. Fuel makes the difference put simply what you eat directly affects the structure and bunch of your brain and ultimately your mood. So you know it's really. Do we talk about depression. We talk about his -iety there is a difference in. There's a western diet and there's the mediterranean diet not trying to promote anyone or another i have no vested interest in anything else but we know from research. Those who are on the mediterranean diet have twenty five percent fewer incidences of depression than people who are consuming the western diet which is highly processed foods that makes a difference in depression. You know you talk about the number of people that are on zoloft and paxil and everything else. That's out there again. Those are meant to try to at basically solve the problem. But they don't address the problem and the problem that we really are something from his poor nutrition. Bingo that quote you could just keep reading and it's like how many times we have to say that and acknowledged that and know that and then as a society we virtually just go. Hey it's okay the you know one point. Three million people are dying every year of degenerative 's lifestyle ridden choices and of course you're going to be vulnerable population to anything that comes into the any virus any bacteria any whatever you're already compromised. I remember the conversation i had with. Dr joel furman. She did does analysis. Were not using crazy weird. Bmi stuff but it was really a wide variety of health parameters. Guess how many people were actually healthy in the united stays two point five percent. That's it so that's the pandemic of three hundred thirty million people. The majority of those people are sick and sprinting towards some sort of medication. Some sort of hospital visit some sort of debilitating environmental issue that they've environmentally in creating. And this is the frigate issue so just gonna use this little last zinger for this one. So do i think that big organizations big government really care about your health. Well the not showing me they do. These systems need to change. But here's the powerful thing. We have sovereignty. We have freedom. We open our mouth. We reach for a thing. We put things in our mouths. We surround ourselves with what we want in the world. That's it that's the power writes absolutely. We do the freedom. We do have the freedom to choose which really kind of scary too when you think about it if you think what would you do if you had a little small smart car or hyundai okay. That was really super comeback. And then you put in it. Tens of thousands of pounds of of solid waste but to stuck it in the car and overburden that engine. Would you not burn out. That engine would not the springs. Go away the coils that the wheels would fall off. We do that here. in america. More than sixty percent of us are obese. Okay.

Absolutely it's great having to back good seeing hope. Everything's been all right today. We just kind of want to start off with. Let's describe the the dvd that garrett believes it the deity that i believe. Well i mean so we. We use the word god to talk about to talk about something but i think the problem is i a lot of people. Get kind of when they think problems. A lot of people can get into when when the the atheist christian dialogue about this is that usually like i look at the conversation that sam harris or look at any of those guys in kind of the the. There's like a great four horsemen of the apocalypse. Right there was docking hitchens harris and lawrence. Krauss i think guys. It's always the case that the god that they're arguing doesn't exist doesn't exist like i usually agree with these guys when they disproved the existence of particular. God that's because they're they're quantifying a particular thing they're saying. Well you know if these are the features of our of god exactly then well that that's not real. Yeah there's there's something i mean. This this is a problem is a really philosophical problem though. Because as soon as i described the very specific features of you more me you can push that description to a limit and then you can say not see that that person you're talking about they don't really exist because you just described them wrong. That's that that there's there's a logical contradiction in what the way in thing you just described

And how did you go about getting a palette of natty light every couple of weeks? Well, we were doing that. We were doing all that there when I was doing my charity event. I was doing it for every July of 23rd from 2002 to 2016. I did a big charity event. We had a big talc cutter. We had like, I mean, we had 200,000, a 180,000 in the Calcutta. I used to do it. We used to do a big old tournament. And it was a cool tournament because I would go out and sometimes I'd play, sometimes I didn't play, but we did a cow cut.

"If i well most assessments would say if the earth's temperature rose on average by four degrees celsius then then then you're you're on a there's no stopping it. It would still take anywhere from centuries to millennia probably closer to millennia so to to to to Melt and and but but by the end of the sea levels will written by by seven meters. But here's what what's happening now and it's surprising People is is a few factors that are accelerating it. I very simply the top green landau. She say about a mile above sea level two mile thick but as it melts. The top of the of the ice she gets goes down. It's no longer to my heart. But we all know that the that the earth gets warmer as you go down in elevation so when the top of the ice sheet is now lower than i than a mile it's warmer and melts faster. And then that. Of course accelerates. And that's kind of non linear feedback because as as it continues to melt its elevation decreases and as its elevation decreases. It gets warmer. There's another a few other. Effects is the fact that the as the as the ice melts around there. The salts The sea level salinity changes and ocean currents change and the ocean. Get also by the way gets warmer and begins to melt. Glaciers at the edges but another effect which which i don't think was expected And number of years because people said okay well if if it's more of its melting then what's going to happen is is going to be more rain turning to snow and it's gonna snow more and that will that will return this no back to to him. But what happened is because of the Of the effects of ice melt as lindsay and currents wind currents and ocean currents there was enormous high pressure song above above green. So the effect was that there was actually less snow instead of more snow and So all of these things can exacerbate what initially starts out as just some something that depends linearly on on the temperature of the atmosphere if you wish and then becomes non linear because they're all these other other feedback effects and and similar things can be happening say and people talked about the the rainforests in in in the amazon as as as it becomes as becomes warmer What happens is that those those areas begin to dry out and you turn from rainforest to a savannah which and those and they'll all the death of all those trees net becomes a net carbon producer instead of an apartment absorb because as those fees die they release carbon to the atmosphere. And so take it up when during force. And you know there aren't so money. More complicated feedback mechanisms like the the the changing ocean currents which will affect Which will which will only affect northern europe it will produce a much greater drought in in both South america and in in africa. And so it's you know the point is when he gets a certain level when one region like greenland begins to tip it can dramatically affect Many things the rest of the world. And so i'll number these tipping point. Things are connected. They're not independent with other tipping points and some people are saying I was just talking to a climate scientist to the current estimates. That perhaps we've already past the threshold for greenland greenland. There's no stopping greenland ice melting..

"It's a story by Sarah Krauss, reporter at The Wall Street Journal. Sarah What's happening, So these are stores that have a lot of space on the inside. They usually have very large parking lots, and they're usually pretty centrally located and communities close the highways easily accessible. So the same things that used to draw shoppers and retailers are now attractive to public health officials who are looking for hubs that they can use. To vaccinate as quickly as possible their communities. All right, So how does it work? How do you design one of these things to be a vaccine center? You know, there's a couple of different approaches that I've come across. In some. It's simply using the inside of this year's store. So you have your parking the parking lot. Walk in check in, maybe even line up inside and then move through a registration table. On actual like behind the curtain appointment to get the vaccine on. Then you sit in a waiting area for 30 minutes for observation, and they try to space it out such that you can adhere to social distancing guidelines at other locations. They've started to use Sears Auto garages, So the places where you might have gone for an oil change. You drive your car in, roll down the window and get your vaccine through the window. And then you drive tol the parking lot area where you sit for observation, and there's officials that sort of walk around too. Serve you and make sure that recipients of the vaccine haven't had adverse reactions about that s O. Is it? Not just Sears, then could it be any of these of kind of large department stores that seem to be going vacant? That's right. It's not just years we've seen them at Kmart. We've seen them really in these anchor type facilities within malls, so that when you think about the sort of aging Sort of dying mall with its large anchor space that could have been occupied by any number of retailer that space has said they get in a lot of communities for a long time. And so you know, they become these obvious candidates for vaccine sites, and in some places they were already whether it's just the parking lot or even parts of these old malls were being used for covert testing sites, partly because they have the big parking lot. You can set up lots of lanes where people can line up and drive through. On Dow That's being expanded to include vaccine administration were speaking with Sarah Krauss, reporter at The Wall Street Journal. She's written an interesting piece. Inside older. Finally, how used for the old Sears Cove in 19 Vaccine Center I get the sense in some of these cases is slightly off the subject here, but there might be a race to snatch this space from Amazon, which seems to be taking a lot of these stores for fulfillment centers. You know, I think that a lot of malls are for years have been struggling with what's next for us. Do we redeveloped the site? Do we try to find alternate uses and a lot of places you've seen entertainment spaces come in, whether it's like a bouncy castle or laser tag, or any sort of like fun things for families that become a drawer. Even Jim's, you know, starting up gyms and those facilities. Obviously, the pandemic has changed that equation. On, you know, wanting to have places where people gather and so you've had sort of even more pronounced shutdowns and what was already happening in that space on do? Yeah, you do have you know the likes of Amazon jockeying for some spaces, but I think there is this sort of High level question with what do we do with this space? What is the best use of it? Thanks.

Hellboy talk with Tim
"Are seeing more of change. I think in response to books like Hell Boyer Black Hammer. Where because there is a firm time line and things are happening characters have to react to the things that are happening even if they don't have full context for what's happening so that's what you like about hell boy be. Pr General. Think helpful like you said Houston's Gone Yeah Houston's gone what are you GonNa do hell boy died? What are we going to do? And that's another thing stopped me please. If I'm going off the rails in the world of hell boy. Bpd WHAT HAVE YOU? Death is final unless it isn't and what I mean by that is when like okay but speculate for just a second over. I'm going to spoil recent events in Batman that's okay. I'll put spoiler at the beginning. The Alfred was killed by Bain in Batman a couple months ago Alfred. Dying is a huge deal. It's a very good story. I'll be really hard pressed to say in five years. We're not going to have comics with Alfred. M I think we'll see Alfred Comeback in the hell boy world if there was a a character analogous to Alfred. If he died he'd be dead. There's only been three characters I can think of who haven't stayed dead One of them is Huma Hunky list which is hard work as say I can read it forever. A monkey lists named Roger. Who's liveability is questionable? At best the other two and I could be wrong as well like I'm not concrete giving you information but This based off the best of my recollection the the other two characters would be Rasputin. Who is the main villain and Hell boy himself and when hell boy is brought back it's not his choice. There was There was a thing that I want to say. Scott Allie who was an editor and a writer on BP said is If he said death is final and things will break and if things are repaired they will still remain broken. So if you like break glass table you can put that glass table back together. It's not going to be as strong as it was. And that's kind of a tenant and B P R D if we're gonNA break it we can put it back together but it's not gonna be the same as a storyteller in a fan of of character the way hell boy and it's related books handle stakes is so it's so unlike anything else you're gonNA find in modern pop culture and he loves. Mike loves the supernatural world. Because I hadn't read hell boy before but I read Joe Gholam which is one of my aches works and it has a very supernatural tinder taste to it for lack of a better word but he really loves that supernatural world when I was reading up about how he came up with hell boy and the Supernatural. In general he started. Reading Brahms stroker's Dracula and just got sucked into the all. The supernatural world and missed. Go along with that and even see that. In Gotham by gaslight. Yeah I think that's where he got a lot of this inspiration because like you said. Eprdf just kind of a supernatural monster story arc on each in how he tries to solve this mystery so to speak. But I really like those like you said the BP because they're short. In general. At least the ones I read are fairly short. They're kind of wins a call because they take place in the past share. Well it's it's interesting because Mike men ULA has trusted so many people with his world. Geoff Johns has written for PR. D- we've got Chris. Roberson does a lot of stuff Scott. Allie Gabriel Bah and Fabio Moon. Who ARE TWINS? They've done some work on a book called. B P R D vampire. Let's just phenomenal. It's so good Abe Sapien had his own series for awhile and there were another set of twins that were working on the art in that and their names escape me off hand but pitch perfect. They're wonderful the those twin they're now working on Lucifer for DC like the the Black Label Sandman books but It's just so good There's a horror comic called Herro county that's written by. Cullen Bunn the art and that is done by Tyler Crook and there was a tiny little bit of animosity because Tyler Crook was the second main artists on E. P. R. D. And when he went over to do Harrow County kind of left He left the crew in a bit of a bind and everybody was a little upset but also he's doing the work of his career on. Harrow. County That's how we got Lawrence Campbell as the main artist on be prd through throughout the run of like hell boy traditionally the art in that is either Mike Minneola or Mike. Minneola esque yes. There's a there's a very good so pretty still pretty rough so to speak but it I think it fits in his universe. Yeah it absolutely does. If we're not getting Mike Manolo. We're getting somebody like Dunkin for Griego who has a very manolas style over. Mvp what we got was a completely different visual. Take and we had guy. Davis was the main artist for play frogs. Hell on earth. We saw Tyler Crook and then going into the devil you know we had Lawrence Campbell. And they bright. They brought a very interesting like real world. Visual take on what Mike Minneola drew as more than esoteric stylized monster world and just like injected it with like this fierce ground level realistic take in it so to to see how Lake Dunkin for draws Abe sapien versus how Mike Minneola draws EP and versus. How Tyler Crook Draws Abe sapien versus? It's so it should not narrative Lee speaking work. It shouldn't do it Michael did a whole issue of of that. We have a painted issues that are done by just masters of their art. And it's it's so wonderful and and just the fact that you can have these visual styles who divorced from divorce from the words divorce from the writing you would never know that just because this character looks a little more cheesy in. This character. Looks a little more realistic. There is no. There's no what if in the hell boy universe whenever you read a story As far as the comics the short stories are a little different. There's pros and all that but we're talking about the comics there's not Lak- what if Abe Sapien was fighting in World War. Two like it's there's none of that every everything you read actually happens To those characters in the world of hell boy and having such unique creative voices all working in tandem to tell this one epic it should not by any right work and if it does work it should not work nearly as well as this does and it is so much fun it does. It's a fun a fun book. Speaking of you talked about Abe Sapien. What is your favorite character from hell boy? Do you bomb or is it a cop out answer cop out answer and then maybe might cop out. Answer is Every every major comic book company I believe has a trinity of some kind so. Dc Has Batman. Wonder Woman Superman Marvel's got Captain America. Thor and iron man You could argue. That image has spawned in which blade and someone else that I can't think of offhand For Hell boy it's definitely you've got an expansive universe of characters but it comes down to Abe Liz in hell boy and if I get one of those three I'm going to have a good time and be in for completely different reasons there so three very different characters In the in the Gemmell del Toro movies. They had a romance between. Liz and hell boy does not exist in the comics. That's not a thing If anything Liz and Abe kind of have an unspoken thing that nobody ever acts on and that's kind of cool because you've got fire and water and that's like a neat neat thing like that. Yeah it's really fun. But if you were like gun to my head me pick a character man. It's GonNa be a tie between it's GonNa be a tie between Captain Daimyo from be PRD. Who is in the newest? Hell boy movie. He's the the wear Jaguar. I love him or Johann Johann Krauss whose an echo plasma ghost in a in a sealed suit don't make can't choose between those two a close honorable mention would be roger but I can live without roger it's fine but But no I love and that goes to the military guy in me I love. Diageo is a traditional military guy and he is just he's hired basically to militarize the PRD and get them to work as a cohesive unit and he just comes in and he's like all right. Look I'm done I'm done like I cannot handle. Whatever it is you guys are doing. I need you all. Just cut your drama. And let's do this. And he just has no time for any of the. He's he's not ignorant to the fact that he's working with monsters he's he gets to the point where he's like. I don't care that you're monsters. We have work to do. And I absolutely love that. And then Johann who was voiced by Seth McFarland and the second held boy movie the The Golden Army In the comics he is so flawed that he is. He's the most fun to read. Because you you just like him you just like him and he makes some really dumb stupid mistakes but they're mistakes that you could see yourself making and you see some emphasis me speaking of myself when I say you but I see so much of myself in him that when he makes a mistake. I'm like own own. No real world content is one hundred percent what I would do and we would all be in so much trouble So I absolutely adore the dichotomy of those two and they don't get a wall but No it's my it's A. It's a complete cop-out I answered it twice with no actual answer. That's okay. I like the fact that like you said it is kind of whimsical. Boys Got A. Would you say it dry sense of humor? I would say Ri- I think is is not so much dry it's like. He knows he knows what he's just so he's just kind of he's perpetually forty and he could you imagine being being against. I'm in my late thirties. Man If you just I would be unstoppable if I had energy and I see hell boy as just perpetually old enough to know better young enough to not care and he kind of can get away with

Oceans of Liquid Diamond May Exist On Neptune and Uranus
"The atmosphere's of Neptune and urine. Ask Ask there's a mantle made up of water ammonia and methane ICES so Those mantles are under a colossal amount of pressure where the temperatures range between three thousand degrees and forty five hundred degrees. Which is insane? Are you still laughing. I can't help it no matter what you say. I'm putting it in context in my head with the word with the pronunciation. Uranus also Neptune tune out. That's not as funny but just going to talk about net no has a mantle and The temperatures are real hot so Yeah three thousand two. What did I say okay? Three thousand to about eighty five hundred degrees Fahrenheit on. Well Yeah Right. How is that possible? You're you're this is amazing and you've just ruined what's needed. Seemed like not as interesting as it is. Well it's very very hot. It's very hot. How hot is it on Uranus? I don't know we're not talking about that. We're talking about Neptune. So Neptune is estimated to be a made up of approximately ten percent carbon urban and under these extreme conditions The methane breaks up into its core components producing pure carbon uh-huh and there's incredible pressure as we discussed on the planet. How much methane is produced on Uranus? We're not talking about Uranus. We're talking about Neptune. Well it's my turn and that's why we're doing a story about Neptune if I stopped seeing Uranus. Will you talk about Uranus now now. Oh you've ruined it and now we're talking about nap. Tim Really Sorry freaks. Just blurt out Uranus from time to time. Good Oh good. I don't use one person's is listening. That doesn't want to hear about Uranus. You're you're making it less fun now. It's gone on too long. The Tangent has spent all all right. Okay all right. It's done. Okay now your Chin is trembling. Can you just nutsy see. Your anus won't say Uranus. I won't say it again. I want to get it out of your system like I mean I know your mouth is dying for Uranus Ray now no. It's not so if you want to just get it out of your system just shouted out get rid of it. I don't want her now. You've made it no not fun. Oh really oh you've ruined it now have ruined the moment so anyway causes what happens. When there's carbon urban a ton of pressure what are you? Nothing go ahead. Diamonds diamonds happen on Neptune. So scientists have long speculated that the extreme pressures rushers might split them all cules into atoms of hydrogen and carbon And then they would crystallize and form diamonds because of that incredible pressure and then Basically it would rain diamonds on Neptune. That's amazing that's all I have to say. It's that's amazing. All right so no one could prove theft. This actually would work until there was a study done in two thousand seventeen in the journal Nature Astrophysics and researchers say that they were able to produce this diamond rain using a some sort of fancy plastic. I don't know and a high powered laser so dominate Krauss whose a physicist at the research center in in Germany told Cosmos when I saw the results of this latest experiment. It was one of the best moments of my scientific career. Krause and his colleagues used. I used to types of laser one optical and one x ray to produce shock waves and those waves were then driven through a block of you've been polystyrene and that that plastic is composed of hydrogen and carbon just like The oceans on Neptune him. So he said the first smaller slower wave has overtaken by another stronger second wave and the combination of these two waves squeezed the plastic back to one hundred fifty Giga Pascall's of pressure don't know what that means but it's intense and that that is more more than the pressure that exists in the bottom of the Earth's mantle and the heated it to over eighty five hundred degrees so that high I pressure coupled with the intense heat causes diamonds to actually Melt Holy Shit diamond obviously a very hard material it makes it difficult to melt and when the diamond is heated it can change to graphite so that's where that pressure comes in with the added pressure the diamonds rather than turning into graphite just melt and when it melts it behaves like water during like freezing and melting And then solid forms would would float atop scientists. Scientists got around the graphite problem by exposing the diamond to the high pressures with those those lasers and that recreating that extreme pressure. They eventually found that diamonds. Basically there would. There would with their hypothesizing. How do I say that word you said it right? I think okay is that there are oceans of diamonds on Neptune in Solid form no liquid liquid liquid diamonds liquid diamond oceans and then there will be the name of a fragrance. Does the diamond Money and then there would be some solids that haven't been met with the same pressures pressures and heat etc.. So there would be like. They estimate that there may be these giant diamond icebergs floating on top up of these incredible diamond ocean. God Burke Paints quite a mental picture does and it's hard to fathom really even what a diamond diamond in liquid form would look like But they do estimate that The oceans would exist That that there would be those giant diamond icebergs and that it does in fact rain diamonds on both of these planets Neptune and the other one so this is really interesting for a lot of reasons. One is just incredible to think of what that would look like. I picture some sort of like princess land. You know yeah it's sure what you would draw when you were like WanNa live in a princess land and you put like diamond oceans. Glaciers the Game Board for Candy the land. Something like that for sure so That's just neat. But then also a large ocean of liquid diamond. Could Ed deflect the tilt of the magnetic field out of alignment with the rotation of the planet and that would explain why y both planets have magnetic poles offset from their access. So they weren't trying to do these as experiments to say look could happen. Well I mean they were but it also their science that already exists to support report like this would explain why we know. This is the case because that The both planets have that magnetic poles offset from their accent in the large arch. Diamond Oceans would explain. Why that why would be the case? which is frigging cool so clearly? There's no point in going going there to get diamonds because they're so plentiful that they don't have any value. You mean on on Neptune like if you went and got all of the diamonds humans and then went to a Neptune mall or something diamonds intergalactic right. Exactly that you see all the Neptunium cruise port they would have no value. I can't imagine what would happen if you drank liquid diamond. Would it cool inside of you and then you'd have like diamond belly. Then you'd you'd have diamonds coming out of Uranus Man. I mean you did bring up full circle markle. Thank you don better now. I'm so glad I got it out of my system. There was one left in

Who Are The Top GRAMMY Winners Of All Time?
"Who is one the most Grammys of all time. Would you think it might be beyond say, would you think it might be the Beatles? Elvis Presley, you know, some of the biggest names some of the most commercially successful names in music. No, not at all. You know, the Beatles. Only won six Grammy awards Elvis has even fewer than that. The the person who has had the most Grammy awards passed away. Now is sir. George Solti of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra thirty one Grammy awards the most wins in the classical field, but more total Grammy awards than any other performer, Sir, George Solti with the as I like to call them, the cats and the CFO. After that twenty seven Grammy awards for Quincy Jones. For all of the music that he's arranged produced in more than ten different genres of music through the years that was not too much of a surprise. But Alison Krauss has twenty seven Grammy awards. Also whole also holding the distinction of the female artist with the most Grammy awards of all time. Vladimir horowitz. The the late pianist composer twenty five oh Pierre Boulaid Pierre Boulay twenty six Grammy awards lots of classical ones. Stevie Wonder has twenty five John Williams, not the host here on WGN. But the. Composer of classic soundtracks. Great movie soundtracks, some of the greatest movies of all time twenty four Grammys for him. And then beyond say comes in with twenty two. Jazzman chick Korea with twenty two you U2. has twenty two Vince Gill with twenty one Jay z has Twenty-one Kanye west has twenty one. I would not have guessed Kanye west of that many Grammy awards because it makes sense in a rap categories. Henry Mancini has twenty. Those are your top Grammy award winners for tonight. The person who is most nominated for tonight is Kendrick Lamar got eight nominations, and we'll see how all
