"Because what does the Council report? The Acts of the Council state very clearly, after the reading of the foregoing epistle, the Reverend Bishops cried out, this is the faith of the fathers, this is the faith of the apostles. And then they added, anathema to him who does not believe. And then they added even more notably, Peter has spoken thus through Leo. So in this one major accomplishment at the Council of Chalcedon, Leo was able not only to help the Church in having a clearer understanding of her Christology, an understanding of Christ, but he also secured from this Council the recognition that he spoke with the voice of Peter.
Fresh update on "leo" discussed on Mark Levin
"Has. Look, when you're as wide as you are tall, that becomes an issue. I'm not putting people down. But when you're built like a kumquat, people have psychological issues. And so they want to take it out on somebody else. They want to show how tough they are. So Little Dick Urban started with nominations, debate, and votes, and they took until 11 .45 a .m. Republicans weren't able to speak. You know, they support democracy. Everywhere you look they're promoting democracy and constitutionalism. Then Durban, after all that, he turns to these subpoenas. He wants to subpoena Leonard Leo, one of the head muckety mucks of the Federalist Society, because he wants to destroy Leonard Leo and the Federalist Society. This is a private organization that they're targeting, like the Rifle National Association, targeting them. They have. But suddenly Leonard Leo is public enemy number one. Wow. I wonder what Liz Cheney thinks about that one. So they try to intimidate him. They try to kill the Federalist Society. They try to destroy his business. Democracy trumps the problem. So Durban turns to these subpoenas. And the debate started on the committee. They were about turn to to amendments. But the clock was getting very close at 11 .58, two minutes before witching hour. Dick Durban cut off the debate. No amendments had been offered by the Republicans. And he called a vote on the subpoena resolution. In other words, he's muscling this thing through. He cuts off the Republicans. Gags the Republicans. They like gags, Now we know that the Biden administration was working with YouTube and shut them down. I mean, you talk about Marxist fascism. These people are dripping in it while they point the finger at everybody else, which is typical Leninist Maoists. Trotskyite That's typical. All the people who walked out. Except Lindsey Graham. Senator Graham, the ranking Republican on the committee. He objected to the vote. Objected to vote under the Senate Judiciary Committee regulations, which requires a vote of 11 members, including at least one member of the minority party. To cut off the bait and bring a matter to a vote. So you know what Durban said? Well, we have a long tradition here, you know, using this rule, the Senate rule, but I am suspending it. How do you like that, Mr. Biden? I'm gonna suspend it. The Republicans, they need to shut up. We're gonna vote on subpoenas, even without the number that's required. I'm going to suspend the rule that allows minority participation. We don't need the minority. I've decided to suspend them. We're past the two -hour rule. I don't care about the two about any of the rules. I want Leonard Leo's head So the vote began, the clock struck noon, and guess what happened? People were watching this on the web, Mr. producer, and they ordered the webcast to be cut So they violated two Senate Senate rules, they gagged the Republicans, went overtime on the clock, they eliminated the need for a minority vote on subpoena. He unilaterally suspends that rule. Thank you for watching. They vote on the subpoenas, and the website But can't view it anymore. And Durbin goes out and lies to the constipated news network and tells them, oh, the vote occurred before noon. He's a liar. But then again, they all are. This is very, very serious. I'll be right back. Love, N on 77W ABC. Americans, you have a Second Amendment right to protect yourselves.

A highlight from St. Leo the Great The Doctors of the Church: The Charism of Wisdom with Dr. Matthew Bunson Discerning Hearts Podcasts
"Discerninghearts .com presents The Doctors of the Church, the terrorism of wisdom with Dr. Matthew Bunsen. For over 20 years, Dr. Bunsen has been active in the area of Catholic social communications and education, including writing, editing, and teaching on a variety of topics related to church history, the papacy, the saints, and Catholic culture. He is the Center for Biblical Theology and the author or co -author of over 50 books, including the Encyclopedia of Catholic History and the bestselling biographies of St. Damien of Malachi and St. Kateri Tekakawitha. He also serves as a senior editor for the National Catholic Register and is a senior contributor to EWTN News. The Doctors of the Church, the terrorism of the Church. Welcome Matthew. It's great to be with you again, Chris. Today we explore the life and teachings of Pope St. Leo the Great. He was born in the year 400, correct? Yes, he was of Tuscan descent. So in other words, he was very much an Italian. He was of the Italian nobility and his family, unfortunately, is not really that well known. We know that by the time he was in his 30s, he was serving as a deacon, but that does little by way of expressing the immense respect with which he was held by not just the Romans, but by Christians literally all over the church. Think for example of the fact that one of the other doctors of the church that we talked about, and that's Cyril of Alexandria, asked for his help in a dispute with the juvenile of Jerusalem over the jurisdiction of that patriarchate in the Holy Land. We have as well a treatise that John Cassian dedicated to him. It was written against heresy. And then we have in Leo somebody who was trusted by the secular rulers of the time, and that was he was chosen by the imperial government to travel to Gaul to settle a dispute between two of the Roman officials. So this is somebody who in terms of the papal administration was much trusted, but who was also a very deeply respected intellect, mediator, and person of great integrity. It is for that reason that he was elected in 440 in September of that year to succeed Pope Sixtus III, and he was in fact elected while he was away on that mission to Gaul. Can you give us some perspective on the state of the church during this era, but also the state of Rome and its holdings throughout the world? The era in which Leo lived was one of immense upheaval, both in terms of the church, but also and especially in terms of the Roman Empire. In the church, we had been dealing with, and you and I in talking about different doctrines of the church, we've discussed many times the heresies that plagued the church, especially from the start of the fourth century when the church was finally freed from persecutions and then had to grapple with these different heretical ideas that emerged. The most prevalent, of course, was Arianism that called into question the divinity of Christ.
Fresh update on "leo" discussed on Stephanie Miller
"A white house holiday party on wednesday and i i took my first ever red eye over there and i'm never doing a red eye again i'm a little bit um burnt out but i'm here because i love your show and i and i love you so uh your uh... i go where we have some breaking news senator dale carter has died uh... supreme justice uh... senator dale carter who found well you know obviously the supreme court is one of the uh... you uh... know issues of our day victor i mean it it's on the road yeah i am by the west on a picture of you at the white house that was that you're so proud of you so i couldn't be proud as if i had birthed you myself i don't know how your mom feels about that uh... thank you thank you but i i just don't think it was a fabulous party uh... the decoration of the holiday party the decorations were fabulous it was it was so just well decorated it really captured the the holiday spirit the white house staff worked so hard to put that on let me tell you the food was out of this world there was it was there was shrimp there was lamb it was it was really amazing i was telling you earlier but president biden wasn't there but first lady joe biden was there and she is you know she's a professor and teacher and educator and she's so kind and mom it was really awesome but um funny it's you could really sense i've never met her yeah but she does she sort of emanates yes yeah yes absolutely unlike the former first lady i was just going to say you did not miss the the satanic uh the christmas uh ornaments or anything for the milania left no not no not so not particularly i'll be you obviously commented a lot on this uh it's uh just i don't even know what to call it last night this massacre on fox news you said to recap in 90 minutes gavin newson ronda santas's political career defeated both sean hannity and ronda santas and proved to a republican audience why joe biden is the most successful president of our lifetime will win in 2024 amazing i mean that's it victor is you know for all the talk of you know like oh wise gavin newson out there oh is he going to run in 24 he he had he has not could not have been clearer that he is not running that he is a full -throated supporter president of biden and that's how you get all facts to the to the fox news audience about biden's accomplishments in this debate and it was so i i don't think i've ever quite seen anyone like gavin newson you know we have great communicators in the democratic party but gavin newson has this ability to communicate in such way a that he's able to be assertive and and be the combative person you like to see on fox but also at the same time be so and calm collected and and and composed and i just thought yes ricky did such a job good at looking to the camera ignoring rhonda santas and sean hannity taking them both on at the same time the looking audience directly to the camera and saying look here's the truth i'm going to tell you and i think there was one point when he was talking about you know the success of the president biden and he turned the camera and said these aren't things you won't hear on box and it was so well it is so brilliant and i'm just i'm really impressed and if anyone has the chance to watch the clips on twitter definitely do you commented on the you know his response to the age question and let's listen to that real quick i i will take you about it at a hundred verses ronda santas any day of the week at any age in fact all of you think you think he's got a job you think he's never said that that's what i was at a time with a lot of it and that's it you don't know it by the way results matter inflation now is down to three point two percent wages are up to four point four percent the economy is booming five point two percent gdp growth in the last quarter there's a fax you don't hear on fox news yeah that's i mean bam right that's that's i guess how you cut through the fox bubble yeah no bam bam is right and and i i just love that answer it seems he didn't give any if you acknowledged the how old president bine was but he spent so little time on it and didn't let them control that narrative he went straight to the record and it was just so slick and he's i i'm huge kennedy something even more so than it was uh before and can we talk about rhonda santas's did you watch his facial expressions yesterday well you mean his attempt to make some some sort of human facial expression yes yes yeah it was just like he got weirder and and makes him not better yeah yeah so great well you know and we also were talking about you know people to judge and you've mentioned that too but just how good he is you know reminds us of newsom as well you said you were talking about him saying recently uh about in lauren bobert bobert has written letters and support for projects in her district uh to be funded with president biden's infrastructure package that she didn't just vote no on but referred to as garbage he is too good at this and that's what uh newsom did to santas too about why he's been down there celebrating you know money he got from biden right yeah and i really feel like this week we're starting to see a big aggressive push it feels like i mean we saw instances of white house people and then president biden's administration call out republicans for you know taking the dough but voting no but i this week i i feel like there's a lot of that you know biden was in um lawrence district this week and did the same thing and you know my speaker mike johnson if we can even call him speaker he he was in um florida earlier this week celebrating this expansion of a airport and he voted no against the law that made that possible so you know i i think democrats really need to do this more and make it clear to voters that they're not being truthful they're not voting for the things that are benefiting you and your community and yeah i i i really love the way that british did it yesterday on msnbc and how newson did it with my favorite my favorite is when uh the president president mentions bobert's name he does the sign of the cross i know i love that he is funny i mean i'm telling you joe biden is good at this um so by the way with the you know this breaking news of sandra connor's dale death you tweeted senate judiciary democrats have just subpoenaed mega billionaire harland crow and far -right federal society lawyer leonard leo in its investigation into supreme court ethics violations very glad to see senate democrats finally playing starting to play hardball this is good yeah that that is exact that's we keep talking about alpha liberals but you know victor when you talk about senator dale connor you realize how far -right and how ethical the supreme you know we may not have agreed with senator dale connor but she'd be a left wing lunatic these days on the on the the supreme court as the right wing today sees it right yeah no i mean i mean i i saw the news just as uh just as we were going on and first you know condolences go to her and her family but you know you're so right it's like i don't even know though we've come so far that someone like her wouldn't even be considered as a viable republican judicial nominee and it's and it sort of is like what i think about when i think of people like liz chain and adam kinzer you know these are people who we don't agree with but somehow we agree with them because they have just common sense and decency and it's like why is that the i don't know why it's so standard anymore but just shows how far we've come and how deep the republican party has become in conspiracy theories and extremism but by the way i hope for one day someone like sandro dale hunter can go back to the bench and you know offers insanity on their side well you know what gives me hope you you and i thought of you jr i was listening i saw a clip of the new uh... interview with jane goodall you -know -who is eighty nine oh yes yes the other person is like the mother debates right yeah yes yes yes yes you've seen her various simians but uh... she but you know she was talking about is she was actually talking about hope andy you know that fight our real is against apathy in that she has hope because of young people like you and i think that's why you know we're so so what your you know we're so proud of you in your voice is so important because e that's exactly what i did the fact that that she's her age and sees what's happening with the environment whatever but says

Maine Governor Janet Mills reported the body of 40 -year -old Robert Card was found in the woods near Lisbon after officials searched for him for days. Mills said she was relieved. Like many people, I'm breathing a sigh of relief tonight knowing that Robert Card is no longer a threat. Police believe he killed 18 people and injured 13 others after opening fire in a bowling alley and then a bar Wednesday night in the city of Lewiston.

A highlight from Bitcoin Set For MASSIVE GAINS! (Best Time For Crypto Accumulation?)
"The pump is never over, folks. Boy, I know. I'm feeling good. The crypto markets are starting to decouple from stocks. We may have cooled down a little bit, but we're expecting to cool down. I'm still feeling very bullish, still feeling very excited, still feeling very, very optimistic about this upcoming bull run. We got TJ and Josh with us on the ones and twos. How are you two doing today? Fantastic. In the corner today. I'm loving it. I got grounded. It's a little easy. You get to sit. And that's the main difference here. I like the shoes, man. I need that with my shirt here. But we got TJ. TJ, how are you feeling today? I'm feeling good. Love seeing Bitcoin going up. All right. And we're also talking some alts and we do got some alts that are performing quite well today. Folks, we're going to talk about Bitcoin and the decoupling we're experiencing with Bitcoin and stocks. So long have we said, well, Bitcoin has a strong correlation with tech stocks. Bitcoin has a strong correlation with growth stocks. Bitcoin has a strong correlation with the risk adverse or the risky stocks here. Those days might be behind us. So I don't want to hear about the S &P is dropping. I don't want to hear about, well, NASDAQ is showing some strong resistance at these levels. So I better sell my Bitcoin. Bitcoin might be the new master asset, the apex predator of all assets. I know Michael Saylor, he had that prediction three years ago. Well, it may be coming true today. All right, let's get right into the show here. Folks, make sure you check out Josh's video, came out last night. Let me hit home. All right, right here. You are here. And I would say that kind of sums up where we are within the four -year cycle. Still a firm believer in the four -year cycle. But I want to ask you, do you feel like just looking at that film and the video that you were in yesterday, do you feel like that's pretty accurate? I can't help but say I'm getting a lot of echoes of 2020 right now. The vibes are coming back. It feels like late 2020 or maybe that early January, we're all kind of debating on where we're currently at, but it does feel like that life's coming back from the market. So just it felt right. It felt right. The thumbnail looked good and the video is immaculate. So make sure you guys go check that out. Yeah, go check that out. I do want to share, you know, you talked about the vibes. I think we're not going to go into the X minute just yet, but I don't have it. There's the meme of it's Leo DiCaprio and it has him, you know, it's like, you know, Bitcoin at 35K today. But then it shows Leo from The Revenant is like Bitcoin at 35K about a year ago or on the way down. And my oh my, how things feel different when they're on the way up versus when they're on the way down. In fact, I remember people feeling bad about 50K. You know, there's a point where 50K was a scary number. Oh no, if we go below that, oh, it's over. Now, can you imagine how positive we would feel if we hit 50K? It's a night and day difference, folks. All right, make sure you're following us on X. Follow Josh Jake. It's not it's Joshua Jake, it's ZZ Joshua Jake. So you want to make sure you have the Z. Is a fake account, did they have the yes? Yeah. So that's actually why I had to do that in the beginning. Yeah. Yeah. There's a lot of Joshua Jakes out there. It's a very common name. You know, my parents just grabbed that right out of the Bible. They didn't try too hard. So unfortunately it's a lot of competition on social media. It's the resurrection of the basic names here. The new speaker of the house, his name might be Mike Johnson. It's like John Smith, a Mike. Is there any kind of combination of those names? We get to come up, you know, maybe just some vague thing where no one could really remember like, oh, we've got a Mike Johnson in the back. All right. That's perfect. Go ahead. Sign them up. All right. So it's Josh Jake. And he also catches a content here on Tik TOK, uh, 532 ,000 followers. I need to throw my Tik TOK up here too, as well. All right, guys, let's get into the crypto market though. I just hit refresh, but I like that fresh, fresh data. So we're going to hit it again. Just like that things update folks. Uh, we were up 0 .7. Now we're at 0 .6 here. You can see the crypto market cap coming at $1 .3 And trillion. real quick on that, we were talking a little bit this morning about how that 1 .3 trillion total market cap could be a little bit of a total market cap resistance from, you know, on the way back down. So, or it might break through. Yeah. Yeah. People were wanting to slow it down. Uh, no, not Josh. You, uh, sake. Uh, no, it's has the Z, not, not the, uh, not the Josh name. Uh, all right. But that's probably, you know what? You just made a new fake account. It's almost like, Oh, good idea. And now I'm going to send you a message. How'd your trades going? All right. Uh, let's go and look at the 24 hour. What is going on with this 24 hour volume? TJ, let me get your take here. I can't even remember the last time I've seen, you know, it's very rare. We get triple digits. I can't even remember the last time we saw over $200 billion. It's almost looks like a glitch. Uh, this is such a high, uh, departure because yeah, we have skyrocket. We've been hanging around this 30 to 50 billion. And now we're coming in at 230. What do you think this is a Bitcoin whales taking profit. That would be my best guess here. Yeah. I mean, obviously these are, these could be liquidations. It's a lot of money changing hands at these levels. Um, and, but I think it's just interest in, uh, money coming back into the market. We've got a lot of stuff, a lot of stables on the sidelines, a lot of cash on the sidelines. And I think people, the FOMO is just starting to kick in. I think a little bit from a lot of the bigger players, when you see Bitcoin take a big move, like it did over this past week, this past weekend, uh, you know, it could potentially rally into this weekend. I'll be really interested to see, interested to see what it does next week. Yeah. Seeing, uh, these volume numbers kick up is a very promising, uh, for all of this moving forward. It's exciting. It's fun to be, it's like, we are, we're back. We're back. Yeah. We're back. And, uh, we're seeing also a lot of hex volume too. So maybe Richard Hart, like woke up that God ETH wallet. Who knows? All right. Uh, Bitcoin dominance coming in at 51 .2. I'm not feeling the best about my bet with Tim Warren that we won't hit 60 before we hit 70 K, but you know, I'm, I'm still being optimistic here. ETH dominance coming in at 16 .6 and surprisingly low gas for $230 billion in volume gas, only 34 Guays. So really not too bad in the grand scheme of things. Let me zoom out a little bit. Bitcoin's price coming in at $34 ,181, uh, still kind of just ranging around in this 34 ,500 to 33 ,500 range Bitcoin down about 1 .3 % Ethereum down about 0 .1 % now below 1800. Let's, let's click on this. Just see how much has been battling that level. Okay. Okay. Uh, going against it, going against it, trying to pass it, trying to pass it past it, fake out, uh, you know, fall through support and then come through test support again. And now we're falling through. So we're going to maybe want to take a nice look at that one with charts here. Let's look at some of these other movements here. Look at that Solana, uh, pull back there. So a lot of people taking some profits off that Solana pump. You see it's up 31 % for the week, but now a nice little 5 % correction. And then doge coin. I said a lot of Pepe whales are going to roll their profits into a meme. And I chose doge as the meme took about a week, but, uh, it looks like maybe now it's starting to happen. I should have put my money where my mouth is. I didn't, I didn't listen to my own theory, but if you did, you're making some money. So go ahead and hit that like button. I appreciate it. All right. Uh, we have chain link whales, probably, you know, Sergei, he's starting to sell. So it's down about 4%, but still above $10. So 10 73, really good price. Now's the time to look at the top gainers. Are you excited for this Josh? I'm stoked every single day. Well, actually today's top gainers, you're going to see who it is. You'll see who it is in just a second. It's your favorite coin, right? When you see it, you want to throw a gala. I'm talking about gala, the gaming token. What is your opinion on gala? It is up 42 % for the week, still below 2 cents though, but it's above a penny. I used to love gala games. I really did. I used to hold onto it a lot in the last bull run and ultimate or leading into this, uh, bear market, but it was kind of, we just kept getting just plunged by a very, very thick samurai sword, just straight through the chest by the team and the foundation. Uh, and so, you know, just slowly over time, uh, you know, I started kind of starting to step away a little bit after what they were doing. Did you get in before the major pump right here? So I got on the max chart now. It looks like this was right around. Okay. So right when Bitcoin was pumping November, 2021 gala went all the way from under about a dime to about 65, 70 cents there. So when did you get in? I didn't get into about 20, 25 cents. I knew someone that just like was running all their nodes and stuff. So he made me jump in, but I made a quick profit off of it. Uh, but yeah, you know, and then kind of just fell in love with the community, got involved in the NFTs was like, Oh my goodness, play to earn game. He's going to be huge. Uh, you know, and there's just a few discrepancies that took place with the team and the foundation and early on NFTs. So, well, I think that there's a good lesson there too. Cause I, same thing. We got excited about gala. We played with some of the nodes. I've been to gala verse. I'm very intrigued at where web three gaming is going to go. Uh, but he mentioned a lot of different things, the team, the focus, the initiatives that they were on. And I, when I went to gala verse, I believe it was 21, maybe, yeah, it was summer of 21. They were unveiling the music stuff and gala films, and they were definitely very split focus going a lot of different directions. Uh, the, uh, one of the original founders, definitely strong resume, but seeing a lot of the different initiatives that they had made me pause and like, wait a minute, just stick to games. If you guys go to all these different directions, it's definitely going to get fragmented very quickly. Um, and so I think there's something to be said there for watching a project, seeing what they're working on, they can have a really good idea of being a really good niche just because the project doesn't necessarily succeed. Doesn't mean gaming, you know, web three gaming, isn't going to succeed. Uh, and I still would like to see where some other games come out because they've got a lot in development, but, uh, the tokenomics, we've said for quite some time on this channel, a lot to be desired for. And, and, and that happens a lot in gaming. You get people that know how to make games, but they don't know anything about blockchain. Uh, and so you end up with a good game and bad tokenomics, and then the inverse, you might have really good tokenomics, but a unplayable game. And that we haven't really found a happy medium yet. And I will say this about gaming tokens, it's going to have a high percentage of investors are retail compared to very obscure defy play compared to, you know, this L two side chain para, you know, those are going to have a more of the, the, the in -depth people gala is going to have a huge influx of retail is my prediction. And then the markets can remain, uh, irrational longer than you can remain solvent. And so don't, you could have, you could be screaming at these people don't buy this because look at this huge token unlock and they're like, yeah, I don't really know what that means. I'm going to go ahead and buy this coin. Shut up nerd. So that's going to be my two cents on, you know, the, the counter where, Hey, you know, these tokenomics are terrible. There's no way it can pump. There's going to be a huge percentage of people who just do not care about that. Unfortunately. I agree with crimson caravan company says web three gaming is going places, but I don't think gala is going to take it there. Okay. I tend to, yeah, I think play during game is it'd be especially in the e -sports category. I mean, there's just so much you can do. That's going to allow a lot more gamers of streamers out there. I know you come from Twitch. It's such a competitive area. I think there's going to be a really good crossover in the future, but like you said, it's just, we haven't found that perfect balance yet. And I do expect that to come in the future. And don't you have a little bit of a gaming background, Josh? Yep. Yep. Just a little bit. Try playing professionally with the Vegas competed to the whole nine yards and then started there. That's where I actually started streaming Fortnite's call of duty. And then the game called split gate. If that's a young person's game, a first person shooters is a young person's game. If you look at Fortnite, like the world leaders are all teenagers are lower. And so like at a certain point, like these, these milliseconds of reaction speed is what makes the world champion 22, 23. You can't do it anymore. Cause some 12 year old is going to be like, you know, moving his fingers a hundred miles per hour. It's crazy. Yeah. And also there's a really bad drug usage and a first person shooter. E -sports also in magic. Yeah. Yeah. They actually rolled back the drug testing parameters. That's a real thing. It's like actually a recent story from this week. They, they, they rolled that back. So it's, it's Adderall. So it's, it's, it's heavily, heavily abused in the gaming industry. All right. Let's talk about some of the top gainers though. Speaking of being abused, we have Doge. It got abused all the way down from 69 cents, but now it is back to under 90 % correction folks. So we're back to 90 % draw down instead of 95%. So how do we feel about that? A Doge coming in 7 % pump up to 7 cents, a quant. God dang it. We're just, we're talking about quants so much internally in the office in the past. I don't know a lot yesterday and a lot this morning. I didn't know it was even the number three gainer. We got to get these shorts out. We should have got a short out, man. We should have done a quant short because guys, this was on our radar. We were talking about it. Also we have roll Bitcoin. It's up 5 .4 % along with rocket pool, Shiba in you. So I guess my theory did play out. Folks said the Pepe whales are going to put it in meme tokens. It looks like it's finally happening. Arbitrum up 5%. The graph. Hey man, what are your thoughts on the graph? I love the graph, by the way. Indexing is a huge part of the industry, but you know, if you're trying to read a white paper, I did kind of close my eyes and felt like I was in a library, but you know, indexing is going to be needed for scaling and everything on Ethereum. So I do like graph. I've looked into the past, made quite a few videos on it, but ultimately I don't hold it. Uh, I think I just, because I don't know, again, it just wasn't, it's not the sexy token of the industry. You know what I mean? No. And when you start breaking down, uh, it has a good moniker, which does not, I'm not saying this is what the graph is, but people call it the graph, the Google of blockchain. Yeah. And they call it that it doesn't really make any sense once you really kind of deep dive, but on the surface, it's, it's a not totally unfair comparison. I could see retail and speaking of retail, you know, there's a couple of retail plays. I think I think crypto .com, just the fact that it's called Crow, easy to say crypto .com great URL. I think that's going to play out in a large way. And I would say the same thing for the graph, Google of blockchain. Well, that sounds good. It's on Coinbase. I'm going to buy, Oh, it's under a dollar. I'm going to buy it. So I really feel like retail is going to come back. Also all the people that stayed on the sidelines who had huge pumps from it. Uh, so they, they're probably going to want to get back in. All right. Avalanches. Uh, then after that guys, it gets a little bit boring. We're under 3%. So let's look at the top losers. There's none.
Gracie Parrish Miller Reflects on Being an LEO Wife and a Fire Wife
"We know that there are very distinct differences between police officers, wives and firefighters wives, and there's a different danger that they face every single day. Even the contrast from an LODD, right? Like a firefighter, this is going to be shitty to say, but this is just when a firefighter dies, the spouse and the family is held in this, you know, kind of on this pedestal during the process. I've never heard, and maybe this is just me being delusional. I've never heard of a fire spouse having to go into hiding because their life is being threatened after their spouse dies. I feel like that might be you being delusional. The publicity that happens around firefighters is gathering too much. And a lot of times our widows do have to take a step back and get away from the public eye. And while that's much different, it's a much different thing. I think they do to some degree have to hide for the public for some time. We do agree with you that it's two completely different cultures. It's so different. I mean, there are so many things I can list out of the differences between the two. And like the top one for me was that when Zach went to work and he was on shift, I did not contact him by any means, text or call, unless it was 911 emergency. It could not be like, Hey, what do you want to do for tomorrow? Or my parents are asking you if we could go to dinner with them. Cause any buzz on his phone was a distraction from him being an ultrasonic protects my life mode. He needed to be on. Now he was working for a 10 hour shift and then he'd come home. He was working great so he'd sleep all day and I really wasn't like up in the middle of the night contacting him. Now being married to a firefighter, he's gone for 48 hours, but I can contact him. I could go visit him. I can go give him a hug. I can go hang out at the station with him. I can text him and he may be on a call and may not be able to get back to me right away, but I have the freedom to be more connected to him and more involved in the station and the firehouse where I law enforcement, there was very little connection to his job or like his crew. There was no crew that he was with. It's a very solo job in their car. So this is just very stark contrast to me. And I'll be honest, I walked into being a fire wife. I didn't know if I could contact Brett the first time that like he went to the station and we were married. Like, can I contact you? Is this allowed? Am I going to distract you? I had to like retrain my brain that I actually could just go drive and go see him if I wanted to. I could take the kids and we could go visit him and like hang out and wait for him to come back for a call. And I think that it has been the sweetest gift for me to be a fire wife and to be a first responder wife. I realized that there was something about the first responder life that just like drew me back. I love being a fire wife. I love being a first responder wife and it's ultimately what shattered my world. But at the same time, it's rebuilding it. I now I'm able to see my husband adopt my two girls and treat them as his own. And he keeps their dad's memory alive. He's not a cop, but he keeps it alive and we'll go to stations and visit him if he's going to have my late husband's name on the wall because they responded to the call. And so they've got his name on the wall or a flag in remembrance of him. And I'm able to say, wow, we're visiting your new dad while he's at work and he is honoring your late dad too. There's just this really cool way that my story has worked out where my girls are fully now saturated and immersed in law enforcement and fire. And the overlap in the community is so strong. Their story will never be forgotten. Their loss is not in vain and it's crazy how the world works in that way.
Meet Gracie Parrish Miller: An LEO Widow and Now a Firewife
"Thank you for coming on with us today and telling us your story. Let's talk about it. Yeah. So I have a very unique story that I don't think it's extremely unique unfortunately. It happens all too often, but I became a law enforcement wife at the age of like 26. I was married to a man who planned on going corporate. He was going to work nine to five and that is what I expected. And then about five years into marriage and 12 weeks pregnant, he decided that he was wanting to pursue his ultimate dream of becoming a police officer. And so he put himself through the Academy and also worked 40 hours a week at a time. I was pregnant with our first child and he just fell in love with the career. He absolutely loved it. But unfortunately it would be about three years later that he would die in the line of duty. And what I thought would be not my reality because we for the most part lived in like a Bedford community where we hadn't had a line of duty death in over 20 years that now we were experiencing the shock of that. My husband had not just been killed, he had been ambushed and murdered 29 years old, leaving behind a four year old little girl, a 16 month little girl, after only three years as a police officer. And our community was rocked because this was mental health. This was gun violence. It was premeditated and our community would no longer be the same because of it and my life would no longer be the same. So I found myself on the news, not just local, but nationwide. It happened on New Year's Eve and we were a young family in a community that hadn't experienced something like this ever. And so it made national news. President Trump tweeted me and it was just this absolute shell shock of what had happened. It wasn't just my life anymore. It was being lived out in front of the community and the killer's face and his name was right next to my husband's as they were publicizing his death. And so I went from a stay at home mom with two little girls living on a police officer's salary that made mac and cheese and did some preschool drop -off. And suddenly I became like a household name for law enforcement in our community for all first responders. And my life became super public. I couldn't go anywhere in my community without being recognized and noticed. And it wasn't for something fantastic in my life, but it was because of the darkest day of my life. Everyone knew how many shots had killed my husband. Everyone knew the name that had killed my husband, the apartment complex where it had happened. And those are private moments that you don't want to share with the community or the nation of how your husband was murdered and ambushed. That's supposed to be private, but it wasn't. And unfortunately that's the part of the job is that when you sign up for this job, you recognize that your husband, your spouse is putting it all out there for the community. That for me, it was the ultimate sacrifice for him, but it also was this long -term daily sacrifice of like my privacy. I was 29 and my husband was killed, ambushed. And then I found myself with three stalkers within the first year that hated cops that wanted him dead. And so therefore they wanted me dead. I had a death threat against me. I needed to go undercover working with the FBI moved suddenly. And in all aspects of where like my husband had been killed and he was my protector and my provider. Now I'm a single mom, widow, everyone knows where I live. Everyone knows my address. And now there's stalkers that are making a parent. They want to kill me. And in that moment I swore I would never marry another first responder. I would never do it again. His job had impacted my life in our marriage in the three years that he was a police officer. And we were a first responder family. I mean we had no first responders on either side of our family. So we were learning how to do this without any background information. It's like we had like a brother and aunt, a best friend that had done the life and could kind of like guide us through this. We were trying to figure it all out on our own and three years into it and he was killed. And then I have stalkers. I thought, what the heck? I sacrificed all of those holidays and birthdays and dance recitals and everything for this. Like what the heck? I was pissed, thought I would never do it again. Really went off the grid in many ways. Didn't expect any public speaking events. I tried to take my name out of everything. I had an alias name. I moved, I did everything I could to protect myself. And it would then be three and a half years later that I would be introduced to my now husband. And he is a firefighter with South Metro. And he did not respond to Zach's call, but his friends that did. He was working the day that Zach died. He heard the tones come out. And so I'm now living this life where I'm an Elia widow and now I am a fire wife.
A highlight from Can crypto companies get bank accounts?
"Welcome back, everyone. I am Cass Pianci. I'm joined as usual by my partner in crime, Mr. Bennett Tomlin. How are you today? I'm doing pretty good. How are you, Cass? Good. I wanted to talk about something that seemed kind of random when I brought it up, banking and cryptocurrency. We've talked about specific banks before. We've talked about Silvergate. I think we've talked about Moonstone to some extent. We've talked about a few other banks, Signature. We've talked about cryptocurrency struggling to get banking for any amount of time. However, lo and behold, as we were about to jump on to discuss this, a new article came out from CoinDesk by Ian Allison. It says, Bitstamp courts European banks as region's incoming crypto rules boost confidence. The article goes into detail just kind of about how Bitstamp seems to be in talks with a bunch of banks to offer cryptocurrency, which if they're going to be offering cryptocurrency, you would think they would be partnering with the bank so that they could onboard clients, do deposits and withdrawals of fiat or whatever. It looks like, at least in Europe, banks are starting to embrace this stuff. Part of the point of the article is also that the United States is on the other end of this and doesn't seem to be keen to move quickly and start accepting cryptocurrency exchanges as a client. What's interesting to me about this article is that it's about Bitstamp potentially having banks in the future. Maybe in three to six months, Bitstamp says, we'll be able to announce at least one of the three banks that we're currently in talks with about them serving us. It is not a super immediate or super positive piece of news when you take it that way. Like the fact that an entire article is dedicated to an executive from one cryptocurrency firm saying we're talking to three banks and maybe in three to six months we'll be able to announce something. The fact that that's news is itself a terrifying reflection of the current status of the cryptocurrency industry. Yeah, I think that that's probably true. However, at least Bitstamp sounds optimistic. We do know, for instance, that Coinbase, it seems like, at least to some degree, has never had banking issues the likes of which some of the other exchanges have seen. I don't know about Kraken. We know that Kraken and Coinbase have worked with some terrifying partners. For instance, Bitfinex, Crypto Capital Core. My point here is there still seem to be some crypto exchanges that are able to get banking and not lose it immediately. So I think that's an interesting question. Right. And we talked about that a little bit when Leo Schwartz was on in the context of Circle because Circle is the largest U .S. domiciled stablecoin. And over the last couple of months has gone from like eight banking partners down to two. And during that same period, Coinbase has now taken their equity stake in Circle and Coinbase themselves have had issues in the past, but they've generally been able to find new banking partners to replace those they lose pretty quickly. What I think is interesting and something we haven't talked about much because the FTX news has been dominating so much is that Coinbase is still facing that SEC lawsuit that alleges they're an unregistered securities exchange, as does Binance face their own SEC lawsuit, CFTC lawsuit, and all these other things. And so one of the things you wanted to discuss was where this is going to go in the future, especially in the United States. And so I think in the United States, we've seen a large number of banks stop servicing cryptocurrency companies since we started to see that they've been given additional indications that this is a high risk industry. Right. Since they started doing that, FTX collapsed. Sam Bankman -Fried was arrested. Multiple executives of FTX have pled guilty to multiple felonies each. Coinbase has been sued by the SEC. Binance has been sued by the SEC. There has been additional reporting on charges waiting in the wings for Binance, etc. And Bitstamp represents what, one and a quarter percent of total global volume, may be optimistic that they've got new banking partners coming on in three to six months. But Binance, who is 68 percent of global volume, has been de -banked from basically all of their European banking partners over the last couple months. Right. Now, that's fair to say. I do want to say that when you talk about the SEC, you're talking about civil lawsuits. You're talking about a regulatory regime that is not the one that people are necessarily super scared of anymore. It's the one that makes bank compliance and risk officers go, this is not worth it. I understand that. Here's some examples that I'm just going to quickly name off because I think it's a good frame of reference here. So we have BTCE, we have Mt. Gox, we have Quadriga CX, we have the hack from Bitfinex, we have the collapse of FTX, we have and probably missing two, three, four, five, six, seven, 10, 15, 20 more off the top of my head. But all of the ones that I'm mentioning were either criminal or close to criminal, like criminal adjacent, where I think people are going, oh, this isn't just a civil matter. This isn't just securities or unregistered securities or a civil regulatory regime coming down and saying something to you. This is far greater than that. This is the Department of Justice or an exchange owner possibly faking his death or you know what I mean? Like these are things that are just so much grander than the SEC saying you're being fined for a million dollars. Sure. But I think broadly, so like if we take it from its very beginning, we've got the OCC, the FDIC and the Federal Reserve Board of President statements from almost a year ago at this point, which really sort of changed the way banks started to view the risk of cryptocurrencies. Since that time, we've had this entire series of collapses that has made cryptocurrency increasingly unappealing. We had bank failures in the United States, many of which were banks that serviced a disproportionately greater than average portion of cryptocurrency as part of their business. And so each and every single one of these things make it harder and harder for these banks to continue justifying service in cryptocurrency. And the other kind of undercurrent to this is Coinbase and many of that type of firm have spent a lot of time advertising themselves as the legitimate alternative to places like FTX and Binance. And so regulators coming in and treating Coinbase as if it is not regulated or a serious alternative to those means when banks are trying to decide whether or not to service cryptocurrency companies and even the one that was previously considered one of the most legitimate is now under this lawsuit, it becomes harder and harder to justify banking sub Coinbase level crypto firms. Well, okay. So my pushback here, Protos published a piece about the SEC is suing Prager Metis, which is the auditor that helped audit FTX US or FTX, FTX, they aren't getting sued for that. They're not getting sued in relation to FTX. This is not related to that, but it is related to their SPACs, which special purpose acquisition companies. These were super popular. They're still happening, not to the degree that they were. And basically Francine McKenna had the perspective of we're seeing a similar problem in both the industry banking and the auditing industry, where what you have is you have the big major industry players and they obviously can take on more risk than super duper small players because they have larger balance sheets and they and paying fines and paying regulators comes with a part of doing business. But the issue that she's seen and I tend to agree with this and we saw it play out with Silicon Valley Bank and with First Republic and other regional banking services is that these smaller providers also have to take more risk, it turns out, right? Because to even compete with the larger guys now, well, it means that you have to do the same kind of thing. So perhaps there is actually a willingness in these very small banks to take on smaller than Coinbase style exchanges or to take on Coinbase, take on Gemini, take on Kraken, right? Like, I don't know why, but it does seem like the risk profile is accepting of some of this stuff for these smaller community banks. Well, and I think that makes a bit of sense, right? We've talked about in our coverage of Farmington elsewhere that like one of the big things that Hanvi are envisioned for the bank was that by taking on some of this activity, which they perceived as not as risky as their competitors did, they would be able to grow disproportionately fast. And it was working and maybe could have continued working if, you know, they had told the Fed they were planning on doing this or, you know, not been getting all their deposits from the same people who gave them the money to buy it, whatever. That's not the point. I think you're right. The smaller banks are probably more likely to do that because that's their path towards no longer being a small bank. More broadly, though, what I think is interesting, and I'm going to tie this back to FTX and Alameda Research, is that the period where many cryptocurrency companies were able to get banking accounts seems kind of anomalous, right? Even 2019, 2020, FTX was not able to get a bank account. It wasn't really until 2021, right, that FTX digital markets finally got their bank account at Silvergate. And by 2022, Silvergate's gone, FTX is gone, Alameda Research is gone, Signature Bank is gone, Moonstone Bank is gone. Like there was a 18 month period where it was reasonable for many of these large firms to actually get banking and not have to rely on shady payment processors, shadow banks or money launderers. And that window seems to have kind of aggressively closed. There are still, yes, firms that have banking and firms that are going to continue to be able to access banking. And maybe Bitstamp is right that firms that have like gone through serious licensure will be able to continue to get bank accounts in Europe. I just want people to remember that that type of firm is a vanishingly small portion of the industry. Like I said, Bitstamp is like somewhere between like one and 3 % of total spot volume. It is one 20th or less of Binance. And so they kind of don't matter. It's funny that you bring that up. I think part of the reason why I wanted to discuss this is yesterday I re -listened to the one single time where I was able to ask Sam Bankman Fried a handful of questions. And the last question I was able to ask him was basically, can you help me understand how you moving money, accepting customer funds that are destined for FTX and you just send them to Alameda, can you help me understand how that isn't wire fraud? And he goes, yeah, yeah, yeah, fine. We have our back and forth. He gets very mad. He says he's not going to answer any more of my questions, whatever. But like what I realized having re -listened to this is that his actual explanation was, well, yes, at the beginning we were committing wire fraud. And I'm just like, oh, he admits it. I forgot to listen to that part when I was so pumped up on adrenaline asking him questions and him refusing to respond that I failed to hear that he goes, well, in 2019 and 2020, you know, FTX didn't have banks. And so we would move money into Alameda and make a ledger account for them on FTX. It was like just a ledger number, which tells me. So you never move the money over to FTX period. And you say you did it with the customers like tacit acceptance. But I don't think a bunch of these customers knew what was actually they were like, oh, wire it to Alameda. I mean, OK. They didn't think about it after that. There was no like, oh, I'm wiring it to Alameda because it's going to show up as a ledger number on FTX. No one was thinking this stuff. Hardly anyone, hardly anyone. I think many I think many of the people wiring the money did have some suspicion that it was less than holy kosher when we had Jason Brolin to talk about like the end of online poker in the United States. One of the things he talked about was how for many of these payment processors, you had to do extraordinarily strange things to get your money onto them. You had to like buy a fake diamond necklace and that money would then get deposited in your account. And cryptocurrency has a long history, that same kind of thing with Linden to Global Trade Solutions AG and then somehow ending up credited to your Bitfinex account. Right. That's typical for crypto. It's not typical for things that aren't crypto. No, no, no. So hold on. Here's here's here's my pushback on that. My pushback on that is and I urge everyone to listen. I think that's a really underrated episode, actually, of ours is the Jason Braule episode where we talk about Poker's Black Friday. And it's just crazy how many things end up coinciding and commingling between the two industries of cryptocurrency and poker. But I will say this poker, at least, you know, at least back then you knew what you were doing was highly gray and or illegal. You knew that this was not something that most people were doing. People who are gambling online, they're pretty aware of the risk because these are people who are like really, really into gambling. And you could argue many of them are probably just addicts of gambling. And I think they're very, very aware of the risk. In in the run up right of twenty twenty nineteen and stuff like this, when you when you had a rational like exuberance, I think you had more retail consumers and more normal people who genuinely were not understand. They were like, why are Italian media? I mean, OK, there was no secondary part of that thought, whereas I think you're right in poker or maybe even in twenty seventeen, twenty eighteen, people who were buying cryptocurrencies and stuff were like, oh, you OK, you want me to I'm wiring this to BAM trading or whatever. OK, I see what's going on here. I will concede you get a different audience of consumer when you start like using Giselle and Tom Brady to do your marketing instead of, you know, hey, you used to be able to trade your magic cards here. Now you can trade fake money here. I will concede those are two distinct, mostly non -overlapping audiences. There you go. That's that's my main point. And that that is part of why I'm like, I don't know. It is interesting. I think banking has a lot of cryptocurrency advocates would argue the problem is that they can't get the banking if they could get the banking, then many of the issues that have been seen over the past five, six, seven years would not be seen because they wouldn't be struggling and jumping through hoops to try to find banking. I mean, when we talked about Bitfinex and Tether's early days, you know, if we go back to episode one and two, the stuff they were doing to try to keep bank accounts open was insane. I don't even know. I mean, I assume they're still doing similar stuff because they're changing banks every four months or whatever or whatever. Like you don't do that if you have a normal operational business. So clearly they're still struggling. Clearly that has not changed. But what to what to the argument now that if more banks that could do the due diligence on these companies started accepting them, perhaps customers would get hurt less. Kind of I guess I'm kind of giving the ETF James Safart argument of this where it's like, why not just accept it so that you can at least track it and and ensure that customers aren't hurt? Well, have you considered the possibility that cryptocurrency companies financial transactions very often included disproportionate amount of crime or other risk that banks don't want to carry? Well, then what's the difference for Coinbase and Coinbase invest significantly more into like monitoring of their customers than Binance, you know? Right. So then is the conclusion that in reality exchanges playing by the rules can get banking and the ones not playing by the rules are the ones struggling? I mean, is that the real answer here? I think there's still times that exchanges that are commonly believed to be playing by the rules still have struggled with banking. Coinbase has at times struggled to maintain banking. There have been a couple of close calls where, like, they switched shortly as they were like getting cut off and things like that. But then, as I'm saying this, there's the counterargument that maybe Coinbase isn't as legitimate as people think. That's the SEC stance on the issue, right? Yeah. Yeah. Without predicting anything, because I think predicting isn't worth much. But do you think this will get resolved at least temporarily in the near future? Because something is going to happen with Binance. I don't think anyone's sure what that something is going to be. Maybe it's very, very small compared to what people are expecting. Maybe it is the kind of crazy things that people are indeed expecting. Who knows? But do you think, let's say hypothetically, that something happens to Binance and that volume diminishes significantly? Do you think that would help legitimize a lot of these other exchanges and their abilities to acquire consistent regular banking services? No, absolutely not. For the reason that I just said, Binance is 70 percent of the fucking market. You can't have 70 percent of the market be declared criminal. And suddenly people are like, oh, yes, the remaining 30 percent. I bet most of that's things we want to have. Right. That's not what's going to happen. And like I will make predictions, I'm going to make predictions right now, a whole series of them. Clip this people come at me in a year. It'll be harder for cryptocurrency companies to get a banking account than it is today in the United States. By that point, Sam Bankman -Fried will almost certainly have been tried and the results of that trial will be known. It is, I think, likely there will be additional indictments of key criminal figures in the cryptocurrency space and we will have seen additional progress on some of these key civil suits, which affect the vast majority of the actual economic activity in the industry. I do not see a clear path towards an easier ability for cryptocurrency companies to get banking, especially when Congress is teetering on the verge of a government shutdown. The Speaker of the House just got ousted by his own caucus. And there's no real way to bring any kind of like regulatory exclusion or anything that would make it so banks would want to reconsider their stance towards crypto. So there I'll make predictions. Don't listen to Cass and his fear of predictions. I'll make them all day. I know you said a lot there, but I do want to quickly say, even if something catastrophic happened to Binance and CZ, like, I don't think that the whole market at Binance is criminal. And I want to be specific here because I think the whole idea of money laundering, the concept, the wording is that you're mixing good money with bad money. And the people who are sending you the good money don't know or don't care or don't realize that it's getting mixed with the bad money. The better way for me to phrase it would have been people will react negatively when they find out 70 percent of the volume was facilitated by a criminal enterprise. Sure. OK. Sure. Yeah. OK. Sorry. I just wanted to clarify that. That's cool. I mean, I think that's that's it for this. Unless you have anything else you want to add. Well, I just want to tell people to get their deposits into Cass Coin Bank as soon as possible. I mean, really, as soon as possible, get your deposits in. Listen, I just that's all I'm going to say. Yeah. And while it is called Cass Coin Bank, I do want to make sure that everyone understands it isn't actually a bank. We don't have a banking license. We don't have a charter. Like we are a we're not even a money we're not even a money services provider. Like we have no licensing whatsoever, but we do accept donations. That's what we're classifying them as. It's complicated, but obviously your money is safe. I can't honestly can't think of a safer counterparty than me. It's a fool at least. It's a fool. Well, we have an insurance fund, guys. We do have the Cass Coin Insurance Fund. Thanks for thanks for tuning in. Tuning in, everyone.

A highlight from HUGE NEWS XRP vs. SEC Over?! (Jobs Report Higher Than Expected)
"Good morning, everybody. It is time to discover crypto. It is Friday. It is Friday, October 6th. It is 11 .31 a .m. 10 .31. We're talking about the Nova Scotia time. I believe that's the furthest east island in Canada, folks. That was for you, all seven viewers from that cold island. Good morning and happy Friday, says Grand Roofing. Shout out to Grand Roofing. Grand Roofing, let us know your town. We want to give you a shout out and then maybe put some solar rays power and panels on roofs and then mine Bitcoin against their will. Just kidding. We don't want that, of course. Piper or Sawtooth, we're all having a good time, folks. We're going to talk about SEC. The SEC coming after XRP. Are they putting in the towel? Maybe. Also, SEC going after Elon Musk. What's going on with them after that? Jobs Report are in. Also, SPF stuff. And Thor. We got some Thor news. Now, Drew, you're big on the Thor chain. What are your thoughts on that just before we get into it? Oh, yeah, I warned about it yesterday. Remember, there's been a lot of funds that have been known to be part of hacks and exploits that have been moved through Thor. I was worried about a shutdown and it looks like Thor chain saw that potential and they're doing some maintenance to make sure they stay in compliance. 23 hours, 50 minutes ago, literally, we're saying, watch out, guys. The intelligence agencies are not going to like this. As it gets bigger, they're going to come the after it next day. Folks, we're always ahead of the curve. That's why we're starting early. That's why we're getting this content out early. I'm going to put out a short on the SEC and Elon Musk. That should be pretty good as well. Well, the hit merch, I still got it. I still got the hat. I got the hoodie over there. I took the hoodie off because I got the nice button up on today. Why do I keep dropping things? The hat. The pumpkin doesn't. Can we zoom out? I didn't want to stay on there. I tried this morning. It's just not happening. All right. There we go. Well, it's a weird black pumpkin anyways. I mean, what are these? Can you eat this? Well, that costs seven dollars and you just ruined it. That wasn't edible. All right, let's get a. OK, now we have spit on the floor. Good start to the show. Good start to the show, everybody. By the way, I'm Tim. You didn't introduce me, so. Good start. Good morning, Tim. Yeah, thank you, Drew. Look, I had to take a bite out of the topics today. I had to take a bite out of this pumpkin. Yes. All right. Let's get Tim. How are you doing today? I don't mean to overlook you like the hotel Johnny's from. Johnny's out today, but how are you doing today? I'm doing good. Hopefully my voice is not echoing like a maniac as it was yesterday. Hopefully the TA is a little clearer and you only get to hear it once. Sometimes you like to hear it twice, but maybe not that close together. But I'm doing good, Deezy. How are you doing? I'm doing great. Thor chain is an OG crypto. Was it Silk Road built on it? I'd have to look at maybe the underlying code. You know, maybe I'd have to look at this good point there. So good to that. Drew mentioned the show Dig In or Bug Out. I think that's what it was called. Is that the channel? No, that is on. You want to explain that, Drew? Yeah, it's Buy In or Bug Out. It's on the blockchain basement. We air those every Thursday. Just riffing on hypothetical situations, scenarios, kind of what your knee jerk reaction would be to EMPs, aliens showing up, maybe Kamala is your president, figure it out. Give us some fun scenarios that you would like to game out. You wake up, you know, think of like a Walking Dead situation, just a random, random scary scenario, asteroid hurling towards earth. Maybe that's one. I don't think we've done asteroid yet. So asteroids coming, 24 hours left to live. Can we do that? I think that's a good one. That's a pretty fun one. That's a good one. I like that one. So maybe that'll be one. Throw out some other suggestions you would like to see, just crazy scenario, game it out. What do you want? You know, look, I'm gonna go ahead and say, Drew's an expert at this stuff. What do you like the experts, maybe a novice, just have some fun ideas or bounce off each other. There's no expert at being prepped. You can only try your hardest and then, you know, sleep well at night knowing you did your dance. Well, Tim, you were an Eagle Scout, right? I was never an Eagle Scout. My brother was. I got to Life. Life. I think. Okay, the Eddie Murphy movie. So is that like, was that a badge? It was like, yeah, it was like the thing right before Eagle. I don't know. And no one better touch Bernie Max. What kind was it? Biscuit? I can't remember. Cornbread. Don't touch Bernie Max. Cornbread. Alright, let's see here. Let's get into the crypto market cap, folks. Alright, let's get into the show, folks. What are the coins doing? What's Bitcoin doing? That's what I want to know. Well, Bitcoin's heading down, folks. It is down 1 .3 % to the downside. Ethereum is down 0 .7%. BNB down 0 .7%. XRP down 1%. The entire market cap is 0 .28%. 24 -hour volume, $38 billion. Gas, I think it was Steve -O shouting it out. Gas was as low as 8 Gwei about 3 hours ago, now coming in at 14 Gwei. We keep looking. Solana down 1 .6%, but Cardano relatively holding strong here. Now, Solana is definitely a better weak pump here. It's 4 % to the 14%, but looking pretty good. Cardano for the daily there. Dogecoin also showing some strength. It is only down 0 .3%, but TonCoin moving on up. It is up 3%. Litecoin also moving up. Shoutout to Tom Crown. How is Tom? I need to reach out to Tom, see how Tom's doing. He hasn't been on in a while. Avalanche is up 6 .2%. So Avalanche looking good. Might even see it in the top gainers. I think we will. Yeah, I'm going to put an early bet that is going to be at least in the top three. Bernie Mac taught Crimson Caravan what a certain thing was. How did he teach? You know what? Don't even tell me. I don't even want to know. Bernie Mac had a great family show. Did you ever watch that show, Tim? No. I would recommend going back and maybe if you ever want to do a rewatch. That was a pretty good one. The Bernie Mac Show, I think it was called. I watched a lot of My Wife and Kids. Okay. That was a good one. Okay. I'll say anything Bernie Mac's in, he is the funniest part by far, even if he has like a 30 -second segment. All right, let's look into the biggest gainers. All right, we got a newer coin coming into the ranks here. It's called Tokenize Exchange TKX, rank number 81. I don't think it was in there as recently as like two weeks ago. Let's see. Yeah, I don't think it was in there folks. So yeah, this is going to be a newer coin, a newer entrant into the region here into the realm of the top 100 gamers. Then number two is Avalanche. So the Avax fans are feeling good. EOS junkies do rule. You got it right. TonCoin fans also feeling good. They're up 3%. GMX, then Mina Protocol, all right, was one of the biggest losers now coming in as a big gainer here. Render also moving up. Leo up. Uniswap up. Injective up. Axie Infinity and Quant. Tim, do you own any Quant? No, it's one that's going to make its way to my portfolio though. Just to me, it's not time to start diving into all those coins. Quantitatively speaking, that is. Yeah, I Quant to own it though. Tom's feeling better. Okay. He was all right. Good. Yeah. I know he had a, he had a little health thing. Wayne brothers underrated show. Okay. Okay. Yeah. The Wayne brothers are funny. I still want to know what's your crazy scenarios, folks. So, you know, let us know. Give us some good suggestions on that one as well. We'll have some fun with it. All right. Now let's look at the biggest losers. Biggest loser right now. It's Loki's brother. It's Thor. Thor's down. The rune is down. Rune is down 10 % even here. Erased all the gains for the week. It was up 1 .5%. Now it is down 8 .5%. Rollbit. Woo. Also down a bit. Wouldn't be a complete list without some of Deezy's coins in there. Rollbit down 8 .7, but that's just mostly peeling off healthy gains for the week. It was up 20%. Bitcoin SV. BSV is down 4 .3. Radix is down. Phantom Galatron. Then another Deezy coin. We got 8 coin down 2 .9%. I need to restake that. Oh man. Down to a dollar. That is looking rough. Stacks also down a bit is down 2 .7%, but still up for the week. Mantle up or I'm sorry. Mantle down. Chili's down. Taser's down. Immutable X down. Tim, any of these you see on sale, maybe thinking about getting me, I like rune, but I agree with Drew's thesis and I, you know, I it's, it seems like a healthy thesis. but Yeah, it's one that right now, if you go to the chart, Drew, it's a good price on the chart. There's a lot of things coming in. It's technically dropping a little below this line, but I'm on the hourly chart here. We've got an oversold flash come in here with the green triangle, our MVP oscillator, which these green histograms are just screaming to buy. We're overextended on everything. And you're seeing again, we're wrestling with this blue line, but this could just be a wick. If people start buying it back up, we could found another, a third bounce of support here on a rising level support. We're in a bull trend right now, higher highs, higher lows on rune. So it is a little risky. I'm not saying it's not a risk, but I am saying I'm seeing hourly chart kind of screaming a little overextended to the downside on rune. Okay. All right. A great breakdown. Can you show that line one more time? It is right at that line, right? It's a little bit below it, but wicks that happens all the time. What matters is where we close and let's see how that happens. Yeah. All right. All right. Great, great chart there. Great, great work there, Tim. All right. Before we get into the sec, tap out, cloud of dust covering the earth where you only get survived by lab grown foods. Okay. So cloud of dust covering the earth. What do you think a last moment to buy in before prices go up? That's going to be, if anyone could predict that EOS, they would be a trillionaire. That being said, my educated guess would be as we get closer to the having, I expect some, some fake outs and shakeouts. So it may look like you won't have any other chance, but I think there'd be one more opportunity after the having. Might be slightly higher than it is today. Might be slightly lower. I think there might be one more opportunity in the next seven months. Why not have a segment called DZ's coins? Maybe, maybe. That, that could be a point there. We have a video. There's a video coming out on Sunday. That's a little bit of DZ's coins. Oh, me and Rodney's. Oh yeah. Me and Rodney got a really good video where if I had a, $1 million, what would I do? Drew? How was that? Did I hit the notes there? Yeah. And I kept it going. I don't think that those notes register. Oh, that was perfect. Maybe that was perfect. Matt Maloney sure thinks so. Uh, SCC is retreating like DZ's. Nevermind. I wonder what you meant there. My wife and kids and Lopez show still get me laughing today. Uh, I, my only thing about the Lopez shows is fine. You know, one it's woke up all the kids, you know, you hear that music in the 3 a .m. It's George Lopez's, uh, I expressions, you know, he does a joke. Then he goes like after every little joke, it's true. It's not necessary, George. Uh, all right. Uh, C 90. Did you guys hear about the CO2 emission that is much, much worse than humans? And, uh, it's also equal to volcanoes. There's something that is emitting CO2 that is equal to volcanoes that was just discovered. It was not in any climate model. It's never been in any climate models just discovered. They're gonna have to go back. Basically every climate model is now bunk because this has not been explored. Do you guys know what it was? No rocks, what rocks, apparently there's so much rock cover on the globe. As rain hits it, there's a slight amount of erosion and that erosion creates CO2 emissions. So we're canceling rocks now. Yeah. We have to cancel rocks. What about Dwayne Johnson tax rocks? We taxed Dwayne, uh, no more fast and furious movies. Dwayne is done. You're going to have to pay it all to the government now. Yeah. So interesting. The, I thought that was interesting there. Um, so yeah, just climb, just be careful with the climate models, folks. All right. Uh, let's talk about the SCC though. SCC tapping out folks. It is tapping out, uh, explosive Bates. Oh man. We just getting started. Uh, KO Kev. Uh, look, we're not talking about DZs methane. Okay. And what that might be doing I got to admit. All right. Well, we zoomed in there. It was a little small. Okay. See, do you two have boomer eyes? No, I just, it was a small, I could read it. It was just a small, uh, what if a rock is a member of my family? Emotional will support rock. Okay. Yeah. There you go. Uh, pet rocks. You know, people have pet rocks. Like pets are members of the family. You're going to cancel it. If you adopted a pet rock, so you're on a list. Now you're basically on the list. You have to register. I guess maybe if it's the rain hitting it, just keep your pets inside and then they don't get rained on. They don't omit the, don't give them a bath either. All right. Uh, if we pay more, yeah, we need a rock tax. No more rock music. Guys, we can go all day, but it's time for us to talk about the SCC. SCC will drop all charges against ripple. According to Yassine Moberok, he's a founder of a crypto VC firm and he suggests they might withdraw their case to avoid negative exposure. He believes they use litigation to maintain in uncertainty the crypto space. Of course, the case started in December, 2020. He's the founder of a private equity firm focused on startups as dicer capital and believes that SCC could withdraw all accusations against ripple and Brad Garling house. According to him, it is not in their interest to have a trial where their corruption can be exposed for the claim that XRP has solidified clarity in the crypto market, which puts their agenda at risk. They will now move to in this case soon as possible. They can appeal to the second circuit circuit and continue to sustain this cloud of uncertainty on the whole industry litigation by itself, regardless of the outcome is the weapon. So litigation is the weapon. They need to move this to the second circuit here. The legal battle passed through multiple heated moments afterward. It peaked in July this year. Back then court ruled that most of the sales did not constitute an offer of investment contracts. They were unpleased with the decision and formally appealed it last month. However, Torres recently dismissed the request, granting them another landmark victory. Let's look at XRPs price. I want to see the 90 day chart because guys, this wasn't that long ago, but it feels, it feels like it was yesterday, right? This happened, okay. A month, two months, right? Guys, we're almost at 90 days. Look at this chart. Yeah. We're almost, it's going to be no longer on the chart. Then we have to go to 180 days. So we're almost at the three month mark. Does it feel like three months ago? no. No, All right. So, uh, technically it was on the 13th. We got the pump today's what the sixth, right? So we're essentially a week away. We're a week away from that. So, uh, yeah. Uh, a week away from three months folks is it doesn't feel like three months to me. Oh, how the time flies. Yeah. But things are somewhat exciting. Uh, been exciting here. That's for sure. Wouldn't y 'all say a little bit. Yeah. It's been a lot happening.

A highlight from IP#502 Adam Blai The History of Exorcism, Part 2 on Inside the Pages with Kris McGregor Discerning Hearts podcasts
"Discerninghearts .com presents inside the pages insights from today's most compelling authors I'm your host Chris McGregor and I am delighted to be joined by Adam Bly who is a church to create expert on religious demonology and exorcism for the Pittsburgh Diocese he's helped train exorcists for over 15 years and has attended hundreds of solemn exorcisms his journey started in brainwave research and psychology and is now focused on the spiritual realities of miracles angels demons and possessions he's also the author of several books including the exorcism files with Adam Bly we go inside the pages of the history of exorcism published by Sophia Institute press we now continue with part two of our conversation a lot of times we look at those things that the action of the enemy that is what 90 % is temptation the our father lead us not into temptation but also as we just said the oppression and obsession those are things that can be dealt with especially in the sacramental life that we have within the mass within confession isn't it been said Adam that one good confession could be worth of a hundred exorcisms these are all just kind of turns a phrase but essentially yes for the average person the average Catholic who has access to the sacraments deliverance comes primarily through the sacramental graces and that means baptism confirmation confession and the mass those are the the mechanisms that sanctifying grace comes into your life for the average person and then of course matrimony for some people people underestimate the importance and power of the sacramental graces and they want the drama of the exciting prayer thinking you know you'll do this kind of magical incantation and make these problems go away versus the person doing the the work of conversion in themselves of making it to mass of having a good confession of doing the work of building a daily prayer life all of those things are actually what lead to deliverance primarily it's not just the exciting prayers if a person is unwilling to make any changes in their life is an unwilling to walk away from sin is essentially unwilling to have conversion in their life usually the prayers don't work because Jesus is looking for conversion and change so if somebody has done something to get into trouble spiritually they can't just come to the church and say well wave the magic wand and make the suffering go away I don't like it but I'm not gonna change my life because Jesus knows our hearts and so I've seen this over the years that even in the case is a full -blown possession he wants to see spiritual growth in the person he wants to see a movement towards him and trust and love and a turning away from sin in addition to coming to the church for prayers and so the sacramental grace is for the person that isn't possessed actually that is the engine that drives deliverance it's so important that in your book you have a section called Jesus as exorcist and that ultimately that's the lesson is the turning towards him right summately and that's what the team in their particular response to the individual is helping that individual to turn towards them it's not so much it is the actions of what they're doing during the liturgy that's what it is exorcism is a liturgy but it's that reception of that person to a life of faith is that a fair way of saying it yes that's that's a big part of it they also are repenting of their sins through sacramental confession if they're Catholic and then another important piece that most people don't think about is they're forgiving the sins of others and so a demon can hold on to or it gets traction from our sins that we're unwilling to let go of or keep trying to let go of and get away from but they can also hold on to when we are unforgiving of the sins of others that have hurt us and so as we know from the our father forgive us our sins as we forgive those who have sinned against us we know that God wants us to forgive as he forgives us you know the parable of the king who forgives the debt of the one slave and then that slave goes and beats up another slave and says give me you know the little bit you owe me and then when the the king finds out about this he throws the first guy who he had forgiven who's now being mean in turn in jail so we see this played out time and time again God expects us to be merciful and that that is part of it and then you know in an interesting twist sometimes the unforgiveness towards yourself becomes a stumbling block to total freedom because if a person feels they deserve to be punished and suffer and they're not forgiving themselves even though they know they've been sacramentally forgiven they even understand and believe Jesus has forgiven them but if they feel that they can't forgive themselves and that they deserve this that also gives the demon traction to hold on so there's kind of a pastoral process that is woven through exorcism over time working with the person outside of the sessions before and after and chatting with them and you know basically spiritual direction and that's the part that's missing in the movies oh yeah that's an incredible part of it because as I alluded to earlier you know it's the opening of doors I mean we can for example I have priests come through our house and bless our homes place Benedictine metals at windows go through the whole ritual as family but then we go downstairs and put on a television screen or open up online and allow something that's evil in character into our house or to do actions what was the point of the of the prior blessing I don't think we appreciate the fact that there is a need for repentance and a conversion of action not just of words and correct yeah and again Jesus knows our hearts so we can't just give lip service to these ideas because he knows what's going on with us for real and he's looking for real conversion and so you know it's just so important because ultimately he doesn't allow this stuff just because he wants to allow it you know he doesn't enjoy the fact that we're suffering but he allows it as a corrective experience so we realize the thing that we're embracing and we turn and run back to it so ultimately he's looking for closeness with us and possession is something that happens to people that generally are running away from Jesus and are far from him and specifically are embracing demonic spirits in some way and so he's not allowing this to be mean he's saying I'm gonna let you see the monster that you've chosen hoping that the person will then turn away and come back to him no I thought it was really important in that particular section in closing from the exorcisms by Jesus that you point out that he does Commission the 12 but in the 72 as well to go out but it's important that it's not only the priests and the bishops who have the authority to cast out demons and that would be revealed over time but it took centuries in a way for the church to find the need to limit the exercise of the use of exorcism and you really broke that open I thought that was so fascinating the research you did on that well it was a journey the church went through and you know one thing we have to remember in the very early church it was just apostles and followers you would have the equivalent of a bishop in your city or your region who would be you know the current apostle but there wasn't this whole hierarchy of you know deacons and priests and formal offices within the church because we're you know for the first 300 years the church was under terrible persecution it wasn't this big wealthy institution with buildings and schools and everything else it was it was a struggling little movement and so we have to remember in those very early centuries there weren't priest exorcists because there weren't priests in the very beginning it quickly came about but again with the persecution in the early church things just weren't that organized and then as the church spread around the world communication wasn't there we didn't have an internet letters could take weeks months or never arrive you know sending information around the world at that time and so it was a very different world it took centuries for the church to figure out this ministry and then through hard experience and seeing how difficult the ministry is and how it can chew people up and how it can lead to pride which leads to destroying people and causing heresies to develop and all kinds of other problems the church wisely said we need to regulate this so that qualified people are doing it it's not just you know somebody deciding they're gonna pick it up because they'd like to the church wanted to make sure people were qualified and then had kind of a proper context to keep them safe and effective essentially yeah it isn't a game and there isn't something that you oh I'm fascinated I'm curious about this I want to explore more yes reading your book is the great way to do that if you have that inkling but the actual ministry of it there is so much involved and you go into the different types of exorcism and how they developed for anybody who wants to understand more about the free masonry dynamics that are addressed by exorcism that's fascinating but also it's a very real issue isn't it yeah so the minor exorcism what's sometimes called the Leonine exorcism because Pope Leo the 13th wrote it in 1890 was originally explicitly directed against Freemasonry it wasn't a general exorcism against the devil it was it was against Freemasonry and Freemasonry since it's you know within 20 years of it coming into existence in the world in the early 1700s the church was identifying it as the church's greatest enemy in the world and there's been you know papal statements I think there's at least seven different popes have made formal bulls and statements about Freemasonry condemning it reminding Catholics that their ex communicated if they become Freemasons which is still the case by the way and so yeah the the minor exorcism actually was all about Freemasonry and that's why I took that kind of a side in the book to explain the history of Freemasonry and where it came from so that we could see it kind of from the church's perspective and imagine you know how they were seeing Freemasonry and why that may have led to this

A highlight from IP#501 Adam Blai The History of Exorcism, Part 1 on Inside the Pages with Kris McGregor Discerning Hearts podcasts
"Discerninghearts .com presents inside the pages insights from today's most compelling authors I'm your host Chris McGregor and I am delighted to be joined by Adam Bly who is a church decreed expert

pages of the history of exorcism published by Sophia Institute press Adam thank you so much for joining me sure Chris it's great to be back with you I'm very grateful for the history of exorcism I think it's an important work I think it's one of those things that needs to be brought out in the light because people have a lot of different ideas about what exorcism is but also maybe not an appreciation of its role in the life not only of the church but even before that and you bring that forward so clearly so thank you so much the history is all there so I really didn't do a whole lot except try to put it together and maybe synthesize it a little bit but I found it to be a really interesting story which is why I wanted to to get it out to people in the form of a book because yeah as you said most people really have no idea where this came from they've just kind of seen the movies you know they have their ideas from there which which is really distorted obviously Hollywood doesn't know much about this so yeah I'm hoping it'll kind of demystify it a little bit and and also it had some interesting twists in the road through the history of this so it's kind of a neat story I thought and I'm not saying that about like my own book I'm saying that the history of it is just it's a neat history well I'll say it for your book it is a neat book I found it fascinating and I think context is everything isn't it so to understand something more fully you need to be able to put things into context don't you mm -hmm yeah I think you do and hopefully it'll help not only with the idea of solemn exorcism but the whole deliverance world it kind of puts the whole range of prayers in a context because it shows back when it was more of a gray area and prayer was just prayer and you know deliverance and exorcism weren't well defined in the early church in terms of where the lines were between them so I hope it'll lead people to understand why exorcism is is really a qualitatively different thing than just deliverance prayers how did you become involved in the ministry that that helps to free people from a captivity that the church wants to be able to offer them well it's a long story but it's about 15 or 16 or 17 years ago I was doing graduate work in adult clinical psychology and mainly brainwave research and I was curious whether any of these strange experiences were real or if they were an artifact of the brain or mental illness and so I started looking into it stumbled across a possessed person early on it wasn't like anything I had seen clinically or been trained for clinically the interventions that you would do in psychology for psychosis had no impact and that led to you know obviously questions and then as I got to meet specialist clergy and got drawn into this and saw full -blown cases of solemn exorcisms I started seeing things that you can't explain and so once I realized it's a real phenomenon it's a real spiritual reality I then decided to basically as long as God was willing dedicate my life to it because there was so few exorcists around at that time you know 27 well about 17 years ago the ministry really you know it had faded out it was almost gone and so we've been working you know as a community for a lot of years and now there's a lot of exorcists trained up in the United States you know a few hundred at least and there's more every year so things are really kind of rolling at this point well the really good news about that is it as you said in the past maybe 15 years or so institutes have developed the one that I'm more familiar with is the Pope Leo XIII Institute that is established by priests and also their particular teams which include practitioners as you are someone who is not only devout in his faith but somebody who has an understanding of the human person which can help them to provide their ministry and then that's an important thing isn't it yeah and it's good to mention of course I'm a lay person I'm not a priest I don't actually do exorcisms only a priest with permission from their bishop can do that but God seems to have called me into a kind of unique role of training and teaching and essentially coaching priests and particularly new exorcists so the best way to learn is kind of in the situation so I do teach at the Leo Institute and I've taught at other national conferences for years and things like that but really the at the end of the day you have to do it and kind of be mentored by other exorcists and people with experience basically and just wanted to be clear so people don't make the mistake of assuming I'm an exorcist I know from the founders of the Pope Leo XIII Institute I know Monsignor John S.
A highlight from Bitcoin Bull Market Will Start When (THIS) Happens!
"Good morning, everybody. It's time to discover crypto. It's Tuesday, September 26. It's 11 .31am. Probably just a minute late, guys. You know what? I had to button up the top. I wanted to try a little bit professional. Actually, I'll tell you what the real deal is. I was going to wear a button -up, and I didn't have any zip -up jackets. And I said, why not just wear a jacket? Quit being a DJ and dress like a man for once. So I'm wearing the jacket today. We got Drew and Tim on the ones and twos. And then there's me in my normal hoodie. Ain't nothing wrong with the Federman gear. I rock the Federman gear, too. True. Yeah. Yeah, there's nothing wrong with it, guys. We're going to talk about why we think Bitcoin bull run is going to start, when it's going to start. Kelly's going to break that down. Also, we got some big, big news. The government shutdown. We're going to break down exactly what happens if the government shuts down. What gets turned off? What doesn't get turned off? Guys, this is less than a week ago. We don't think it's going to happen, but it's good to be prepared just in case. Also, we're going to talk about NASA. Do you know the NASA story? What is the NASA story? They're going to hire blockchain and then pair them with Hollywood to create the second landing on the moon coming your way very, very soon. All right. All right. Stanley Kubrick, you know, rising up like Skeletor. All right. That ought to be a good one. Also, we're going to talk some XRP news, some Microsoft stuff with Xbox and crypto. That could be potentially gigantic and also just some world global stuff. It's going to be interesting. All right. Let's, guys, make sure you are subbed to the channel if you're not already. Hey, maybe even hit that like button on that one video. If you want to check out our other channels, please do. We're always putting out great, great content. Frankie around the blockchain, BitLab Academy, The Basement, NFT alpha, last but not least. All right. Let's look at the crypto market cap here. What is going on with the crypto prices? We're going to go ahead and refresh. I want that freshest Chainlink oracle data. Looks like we're up 0 .3%. So we're up a third of a percent. The market cap is coming in above 1 trillion. We're 1 .08 trillion for the market cap. 24 -hour volume is slightly muted at $28 billion. Bitcoin dominance coming in at 47 .1. Gas is low again. Isn't as low as 11, what we saw, I believe, on Friday, but down to 23 gwei. Pretty low right there. So if you want to get in and out of some alts, now is potentially a good time. Bitcoin is down right in line with the market. The market's down 0 .3%. Bitcoin is down 0 .3%. Ethereum down 0 .1%, down 0 .2 % just for the past hour. However, BNB moving up however slightly. Also, XRP. XRP community in the chat hit that like button. You were up 0 .6%. It's time to celebrate. Also, we have, hey, Cardano's flat when Bitcoin's down. I'm just going to take that as a victory. I'm going to go ahead pat myself on the back for that one. But we are below 25 cents. Cardano coming in at 24 .4. What is up with Cardano at this 25 -cent level? Tim, you're Mr. TA. It loves being right out of quarter. Yeah, well, and before it loved being at 30 cents and then... Hey, don't remind me. And before that, it loved being at I think 50. Before that, it loved being at a dollar. I love Cardano. It's my largest altcoin bag still, and I'm not giving up that conviction of it. Now, it's setting lower highs and lower lows. What do we call that? A bear trend. I'm going to continue to hold to the call that I've made now for over a month. I believe, oh, actually, it's been like two months now. I think we're going to be seeing an 18 -cent Cardano. I called that back even as we were pumping up to 38 cents here not too long ago. I still believed that 18 cents was coming in. And if you're looking at this bear trend, lower highs, lower lows, I think it's going to happen. All right. Speaking of lower lows, a lot of people talking about the truck and how they want to back up the truck and then just buy a lot of these cheap alts. That's what I would do. That's the positive side of this. I wouldn't do weird things with it. People hear bearish price predictions or bearish prices being talked about. And their first thought is to be like, oh, no, that's not going to happen. I can't lose the money. I was like, well, you don't lose unless you sell. And also, if it goes that far, you had an amazing opportunity to buy again. So stay positive. It's a great idea. It's it. I'm rooting for Cardano to get 18 cents and Bitcoin down to 19, 900, 700. You stop that blasphemy. That's yeah. Well, we got right the blockchain. 24 cents is the floor, guys. Just be careful because it is until it isn't. And then it will be, you know, we got that little spike off 21 cents. So I expect a little bit of pressure. And then the psychological level of 20 cents if we fall below this. But I believe we would need to see Bitcoin at 2322 for that to happen. Alright, in the rest of the alt realm here, we have Dogecoin down 1%, Solana down almost 2%. Tron moving on up. Good job, Justin Sun. We have Polkadot down 1 .4%. So nothing really is moving too hard. Even Chainlink's barely moving here. Wait a minute. Did we see some in the 3 %? Law enforcement officer? No, no, no. Why is Leo token down? Hey, you know what we're talking about here. Let's talk about the big gainers though, folks. Looks like Maker is leading the way. It's not much of a pump, folks. 4 .3%. We have FRAC shares up 3 .2%. And then after that, very, very muted. It is right at 1 % for Optimism, Avalanche, and then BNB. So we're really not seeing anything jump too much here. Do you have any of these coins in the top? You have any FRACs? What is up with FRACs? Always moving. Crazy. Avalanche is the first one on that list that I have. I don't have any BNB. I have some XRP, obviously.

He got involved in in the public schools volunteering. They said i. I don't wanna leave. And and he was there again until until his passing. You talk in the book when he went to audition for the uncle leo Part on seinfeld. And i guess us a little bit intimidated doing any sort of that whole hello jerry. Kind of thing that that's kind of what got him. I got in the part anyway but that kind of gave them the character didn't it when he just added that line right i did. He did thought that was. That was pretty funny. Nineteen again low. So yeah i teach he just did it on the spot again. He gets on some comedy work as you mentioned In the sixties and the seventies and the eighties he was doing a lot of these heavy roles And so he just he decided okay. I'll give this a shot. And he came up with this. Hello and he was. He was sort of surprising. I think he thought again. That's what kind of dog him. The gig but really jerry. Seinfeld say to me know i had.

"Leo. How are you this week? I am. Well, you are sitting in front of a beautiful vehicle today. What is that? Yeah. That is the 2023 Cadillac lyric. So this is the beginning of the transformation for the Cadillac brand, uh, by by the end of this decade, and perhaps even sooner than that, Um, GM wants Cadillac to be all electric. Um, remember being at a luncheon with former head of Cadillac brand at the end of 2019 just before things went all sideways there, Steve Carlisle and he said This is this is the end of the ice age for for Cadillac. And so the lyric is their first TV. It's built on GMs New Alte, um, platform so it's going to use the same type of same batteries that are going to be in the Hummer Evie, which is actually supposed to start production. 1st 1st vehicles off the line next month in October. Um And I guess if you're going to drive a Hummer, at least you could drive it without guilt. If you drive the Hummer evey exactly. Well, you know, I mean, when the thing weighs £9000 I don't know how guilt free it's really going to be. Uh, you know, Fortunately, you know, it's the Hummer is really going to be a niche vehicle because you know it's going to be $115,000. You know, it's not going to sell in huge numbers. I would be surprised if even when they launched the lower cost versions of get down as low as I think about $85,000 if they saw more than 10,000 year, But the lyric is really a more mainstream vehicle for Cadillac. It's right in the heart of where the luxury market is today in in mid sized upper mid size crossovers, it's a It's a two row five seat crossover somewhere in size to, um the are actually slightly bigger than the Cadillac XT five that they have today. Um and I got to spend three hours on this past Wednesday morning at the GM Tech Center. With members of the team that have been developing the lyric. Um And so this vehicle is scheduled for production in February. Uh, um, It's going to have a 300 mile at least a 300 mile range, they say and, uh, it, uh, the the launch edition that comes out in the spring, the first the first version of it. Um, is going to be rear wheel drive 340 horsepower Electric motor, But I learned some really interesting details about this vehicle. As we went through that we spent some time in the design studio and I spent some time with the engineering team. And, uh, Uh, one of the things with with an electric car because you want to. You want to be able to maximize the amount of regenerative braking you can do You want to recover as much energy as you can whenever the vehicle is slowing down. Uh And so, um, you know, one of things you don't want on an E V. It's especially important on TV. It's important on any vehicle, but especially TV is you want to minimize aerodynamic drag? Uh and Because the more arrow drag you have, you know, then when you lift off the accelerator, the air is slowing you down instead of, um being able to use your regenerative braking to recover that energy and put it back in the battery, so it's not just to make the battery more efficient. But it's also to give you better region That makes sense. Yeah, Yeah. Yeah. So, um, one of the neat details Several years ago, GM built a new wind tunnel Gems had a full size wind tunnel since the 19 eighties. But they rebuilt their wind tunnel and they now have what's known as a Rolling road Wind tunnel. And this is an idea that actually started in Formula One back in the eighties. Um, when they came to the realization that, um the the way air flows over a vehicle can actually change quite a bit if the wheels are turning versus if the wheels are static. So if you just take a car and stick it in a wind tunnel, and it's nothing is moving except the error around it. The results you're going to get it going to be quite different than if the wheels are rolling the way they would be when you're moving down the road. Uh Of course, you know, so Formula One teams have had, like one quarter one third scale rolling road wind tunnels for for many years. Is it a trade man? But this essentially yes, like a giant treadmill that the car sits on, so they roll it in there, put on the treadmill. And it moves to have a moving ground plane and move and the wheels are rotating and that changes the way the error interacts around the wheels in one of the neat details that they learned when they were developing the lyric is if you look at your tires on your car, you will find that like around the edge near the edge, where it goes from the side wall to the tread. There's usually a ridge that's molded in there. And there's various other aspects of the sidewall that when the tires rotating, actually creates a surprising amount of drag And so what GM did was they worked with their, um, with their tyre suppliers to rework how the tires are molded to eliminate or minimize those ridges along the side wall and that was able to get them. Um, what roughly, Um they said what they refer to as 10 counts of aerodynamic drag, so The drag coefficient of the vehicle is a tip on a typical modern vehicle might be anywhere between 0.25 Point 35. And you know, 10 counts would be 10 1 thousands of that so it might be like going from 10.27. Um, 2.26, which is a significant difference for you know something that, um once you figure out how to do, it doesn't actually cost you more. Uh, so and that makes it on an e. V. That makes a real difference. Another detail. What they did is on the rear hatch on the rear glass. Um, you know, most crossovers, SUVs and so on. You'll find there's a windshield wiper back there to keep it clean. Well, one of you know that adds weight, and it also adds drag when the air is flowing over that. So what they have on the lyric is the spoiler at the top of the tailgate that has a flow through spoiler, So they've designed it in a way. So when the vehicles moving the airflow through there is basically sweeping everything off that rear glass And so they claim they won't need a windshield wiper. So that reduces the drag. Uh, interesting. So we'll see how well that part actually works in the real world when I get it in a rainstorm or snowstorm, But it's a you know, it's one of those details. 11 last error detail If you're if you're watching the video, you'll you'll notice on the doors. What looks like handles. They look like Tesla handles. To be honest with you hand. Yeah. Um, you know, because they're flush mounted with the sheet metal, but Unlike a Tesla handle, you walk up to it. You touch that they don't pop out. Um In fact, it's just a touch surface and it actually the doors on the lyric have the same kind of door presenters that you have on your Mustang. Maki. So there's a little piston on the inside. So you touch that and it pops the door out a couple of inches and you grab the edge of the door and open it. So it looks like door handles, but they're actually not. They're just it's just a touch sensitive surface. It's like my my Mustang, which just has a little dot on it. And then you grab the door to open it, Which seems like a kind of primitive, but exactly the same mechanism. Yeah, that's clever. So it makes people feel like they've got handles, but they don't The test, so they actually pop out and you can pull on them. But that seems like a lot of compliments. Yeah, that's the problem. It's electrically complicated. It's probably better just to unlock the door and let you open up with your hand. Yeah, Cool. I have a little. The driver's side has a little little little hook to pull on. They can do that for the back seats on the on the model E. Well, very cool. I like this with that on the They got away with that on the Maki because that that little hook is within the wake of the driver's side, by the way, your side mirror so it doesn't actually interrupt the airflow there. It's really interesting. They put so much effort into just the tiniest increase in aerodynamics is, Um oh. We only have 30 seconds left, but you're showing the interior Now that is a big screen, and I don't mean big, like big. It's cried display. It's like goes across the whole dashboard. Wow. Yeah, I'm almost always about two thirds of the way across from from the.

"leo" Discussed on Year of the Peer with Leo Bottary
"Society is open as ours. So the the big thing that i've seen between groups and candida ceo groups in canada for example in your groups in the us and it's subtle. I don't want to overstate this too much. But when you look at their basically three things that make a group early work and have the right people right one. Is you have to have a shared common purpose for while. You're there both are important to both the second. Is you have to have shared values and behaviors and traits that will make you a good contributing member to the group and the third is really you want the diversity in the group of whatever diversity you can create all the voices around the table that will help You know you drive a valuable experience. Us groups i would say on average and slightly lean toward the diversity part as being really important a lot of the groups in canada. Lean more toward The shared values piece. They're feeling on. That is bad. You have to have the shared values part because you can bring someone from another industry sector under the practice area another whatever you know way. Diversity cuts right. But if they don't have the shared values piece they can't be contributing members of Is gonna work out. And i think they're right you know. I think that that that is that is truly fair and it like i said. I think there's a bent a slightly in one side to the other for. Us versus candidate groups but they both recognize supposed to important and You know. I think with regard to sex psychological safety. I think they both groups. They're just everybody's trying everyone's trying the best. Everyone knows that. Like i said one of used the metaphor about the pool of water at the spa. Everyone knows that if they were full into it would be the most incredible experience world. They just don't always willing. They just will sit next radio magazine dangling feet in the water you know but but to get people to truly let go into truly allow them to receive what's available to them so that they can be open to a listening and it can be more curious and ask better questions than learn more about themselves and others. It's just take scott. Have you synced any shift because of the pandemic and because of the the kind of the pinup silo wing that might have been necessary during a pandemic that now that we're emerging from it are you are you. Are you sensing that. Ceo's in particular might be even more open you know to diversity or might be more open to for life or better word might be open more open to the input and the experiences of somebody completely outside their realm. I think they are first of all. This is really funny. Call is coming from italy. I have no clue that would be. Well here. we are. I should have heart. We should him pronounce your name. Though this is this world There were living. I'm very asked the question of the silo wing that happened. During the pandemic the diversity piece yeah the emerging from that is there a pent up demand for people to not be quite as siloed because what we know what that felt like. That didn't feel too good. Yeah there's a diversity piece in the side of a piece. The diversity piece is yes. We need a lot more voices at the table but but the inclusion piece in actually even taking it a step further and creating a sense of belonging I think is buried top of mind with people. Vanessa the You know about leveraging that really becomes important when it comes to silos. I think that could not be a better time to work on your cross functional team. I realized that's out of self interest may be from my standpoint. Bud you know the bottom line is that you know if you could take what appeared buzzer groups. Do so well and applied to cross functional. Work came and actually get them functioning at least as well as your average. Ceo bird visory group. Does it would be leaps and bounds over anything That that cross functional teams doing together right now. It would help break down. Those silos would in a spirit of cooperation collaboration that would transcend these territorial battles. That people have were people budgets and pet projects within their particular departments and and people would have a lands into what's going on on the organization so that when it came to making certain decisions of have the right people involved from the beginning. You wouldn't have something that happened in one department you find out. It adversely affected Some somewhere else in by the way. Those things aren't always in real time. That could be something i'd do today. We don't see for six months you know. In in that now no one even knows where to retributive. Aren't they go down following it. So i think both of those things are hugely important and it is amazing to be the number of of companies that had absolutely met about asylum. They are and talk about talk about being able to make a difference in forget. Remove that what a what a different train standing in really tall grass and not being able to see over. That's how people operating in new jobs and the market the market and the economy are going to kind of force our hand. Those of us that you know may be tempted to remain siloed or or or survive in organizations where that's that's their department. I mean that that seems to me to be quickly. It's by necessity having to go away for the simple reason that we talked about earlier. Talent the talent pool. I don't know the high achievers that i know they. They really don't operate that way. They really don't enjoy operating that way. They they want their voice heard and they especially some of the up and comers the younger folks who who want to have a voice at the table also have a degree of. I don't know a sense about them. That will if i want that. Then i need to give way. 'cause i know my counterparts. They also want the same thing. So we kinda have tolerance for one another and i think that this tight labor market thing so the lack of i think i think overplay and i really do. I know a lot of people get upset to hear that bud. I think the reality is that there are some professions some trade. There are some Skills that are Enough people. For and i get short of that. Take you know ninety percent of all the other jobs out there and we lack the imagination in a decent system to match people with open positions. We just do we have this ridiculous system that his is designed largely. We've people out and that's what we do and we cast really great people aside for jobs in we complain that we can't find the right person for the position because what they're looking for and how they're looking for it is completely ridiculous so many respects terms of finding people that were have the skills and the will and the passion and everything else the really successful at your organization. I think about the people that are just aren't even considered we've talked about this whether it's You know women left the workforce that are trying to get back to work whether it's older people whether it som- i.

"There's just a lot of rubble there so so for companies for example. It's like okay. Do we have a vaccination policy to not what does that look like You know The i think there's a lot of people really fears. the job. market is wide open right now. They feel like there's going to be a lot of movement. Nobody wants to lose their good people. You know we've mentioned this before you want to be the person at the end of it. Now who treated their people really well during covered. Because if you did You're going to find yourself on the wrong end of that Yeah scenario going forward. The ceo's the in these groups and and of course i dunno as anything more galvanizing then been in a foxhole. You know with with other people you know. So the ceo peer groups that that you so regularly address. I mean i can certainly see that. I mean coming out of it i would surmise. They're going to have a bond they're going to have a they're going to have a unique bond that the pandemic provided you know for all of them there are some groups in and plenty of them that were actually formed during the coca period. You i think Visage launched like fifty two groups last year during cope. I mean think about that right. So it was the idea of people recognizing that they're better off as part of a group and being stuck out there alone. And i think when you look at everything from various government programs to ppp loans to all kinds of things that were available People needed a lot of guidance. About job you know. Get their way through the system and how to make sure that they were understanding. Whatever was being put out there to help them to be able to maximize that and interviewed and do that together and have someone in the group who may be just better equipped be on top of that share that excuse me with their fellow members. It was an enormous benefit. So yeah And i think for those groups also would tend to happen. There was the group's didn't just meet like the typical once a month full day. you know. take that retreat. You know the idea of the all day meeting is that you try to clear the decks. You mentally physically and everything so you can take a day where you can do a full immersion with a ceo group to really not just work in your business right but decided working on your business and And to do that with peers. And you know that was taken away a little bed for awhile by the necessity of needing to meet more frequently for less time and help each other with the immediate fire. Right it's great to work on strategy would have liked kitchen burning. I need to go to attend to that. You know so i think this was what people did. And they did for one another and They got to know each other better more quickly and brought the group together. You know had certain people will say well you know. We're a little behind have kind of this process down or this way of You know working through issues quite perfect yet. And i'm like yeah but your group is so head of the game because of how the bonds they formed so much more quickly and more deeply into short period of time where everyone helped each other through the storm if you will right so i think there's a certain advantage to especially new groups. Starting when they did at least from the perspective of bonding with one another. I think that has been absolutely evident And i think for those groups that have been a long long time for them. It's not even that far away. What do you think about. The two thousand financial crisis probably seems like forever ago. But you know they recognized back that that that's when you need each other most times the toughest stan. They not only helped each other. Prepare more effectively for that storm that had because there were certain obviously early indicators economy where people who because they represent various industries in different parts of the economic. You know web here They just Were able to keep one another apprised of what's going on. See the early warning signs. Move forward with that You know as we've said many times we can complain about zoom diverse tools but back in two thousand eight. We're lucky that it wasn't a pandemic because we didn't have zumra slack or microsoft teams. We had none of that Before have been dialing in conference calls until their ears. Blood you know would have been ridiculous. So i mean i. I'd like to think that as we reflect on a lot of this stuff. And i think people are First of all the reflecting and thinking about what went. Well what are we be grateful for are some of the values one of the some of the things that people exhibited that we wanna make sure live on you know pass code but then it's how do we now organized slash reorganized in a way that keeps us really productive. Has our employees really happy You know just did a Amid year Trust barometer kind of update and the there was a lot. they're talking about just the value of the employees Now it may seem obvious but when you start comparing to customers and investors and other major stakeholders there the employee's weren't always first on everyone's less and now they are so recognized as being essential to what makes a company a good investment. what makes it valuable to customers. Obviously what makes it important far as people in a place to work. So i think there's a lot of Kind of regrouping going on right now. Maybe taking some good of what happened during covid when you know. We've talked about many times. So many more. Ceos were asking how you doing. Not just what are you doing. And how do we keep that gone hud. We do a really good job and maybe a better job treating each other as fellow human beings as opposed to just colleagues. Yeah yeah well ends and the technology has just broken down. I mean there's no geographical barrier anymore so if you're looking for i mean here dallas fort worth so if you're looking for high talent dallas fort worth texas in the in the work if it can be done remotely you're not limited to people who just live here in dallas fort worth texas. They they could be anywhere. So the talent pool is greater and i'm encountering a number of business people who are thankful that the talent pool can be broadened because well i mean i'm sixty four but i've heard all my life every year how there's a talent shortage. There's a talent shortage i mean. There's always a talent shortage. there's always been perceived talent shortage real or imagined in some now. Think whether it's a hybrid model or whether it's going all remote and the number of i don't know just anecdotally in in the number of articles and things that i see online of ceos and entrepreneurs who have figured out now you know what i'm i'm spending four hundred thousand dollars a year and and my lease i'd i'd rather i'd rather give that to humans i'd rather i'd rather up the talent pool and pay that money to a person you know as opposed to a landlord. There's something to that for some people or that fits their business model. I i think that's totally right. You it shines. A light on people are not only going to be competing with a but they're compete with other people all over the.

"All ready cantrall here. I am in cincinnati ohio out just finished actually a vista group meeting here actually. Another one tomorrow Before heading back to california but It's kind of interesting traveling around the country to seem kind of what's going on. And what's on people's minds and how different it is from one state to another and one municipality when you seen how they're dealing with covid paths no masks you know but that's looking like the pretty pretty amazing stuff so on our things in what's it look like in texas right now as far as people masking up or not or what's in the republic of texas or are we gonna do our own thing yeah. I you know the mass at the height at the height of it. I would say really well High compliance. I'll put it that way but honestly that did not last terribly long. I think we've had people would clearly. We've had people that never that never did not. Even out of courtesy you know didn't but now Probably more rare to see people wearing masks than not. I'm curious for you traveling. And now that you've been traveling has traveled changed from the time that it reopened or the changes in airline travel from the first time you got on a plane when this all ended to say your most recent trip is anything changed so to six one is when i went to the airport to fly out tuesday morning after the monday holiday. I've never seen so many people in an airport in a long time. So the the traveller count was a shore in a major way and that was really kind of interesting to say to see really gonna took me back a little bit as opposed to getting handed a plastic bag with a tiny a bottle of water in a bag of pretzels and a wipe of some sort Get you across. The country was pretty much that was supposed to last you. They actually have reinstated a non alcoholic beverage service with the usual selection of tax. But it's it's getting there. It's making progress. Yeah well that's that's an that's an improvement. Well we were talking before we hit recording. And now that you're on about and you're you're certainly interacting with more people for me. Thinks have always been dominantly virtual so my personal my face to face. Interactions have increased net. Really just because i choose it so if i choose to go and spend some spin the morning at at city hall you know with city leaders Just kind of nice to do every now and again but it really hasn't changed so much my interaction so the scope and the scale of what you're hearing and the concerns and i mean we'll where the pressure points where two people threaten over there front november reentry and some various stages of it so a company. I was out today. Everyone's all back are all working in the office and all of that other companies. They're still remote others have more of a hybrid model. Because people wanted to come back. They really felt that isolation and really feel like they wanna be have a place to go at least a few days a week that get out of the office of your small apartment living by yourself somewhere crappy internet much. Yeah i'll take a little communities feel like get out and about and have it be little more normal so so it's not. It's not the same for everyone by any stretch. I mean that's the challenging piece of it. I will say that this is were watching. People work together in groups is really helpful because they really can bounce ideas one enough off one another in real time and this is you know this'll be you know. Go be hundreds of case studies about this somewhere down the future. But we're living now and in order to get real time I think input from people about what they're doing and how they're doing them share their experiences on. This is where i'm definitely seeing the groups. Be most helpful. Let's face it it. It's like anything you know during times of difficulty or crisis or something This is what we need. One another more and i do think people leaned into their groups. Anyone who could you know unless you're your business was completely threatened to go out of business so you end up not being able to survive. This i think most you see ios or android key executives news date with their group and really dependent on and leaned into their group to help them get through What they were doing. And i think a lot of them are grateful for that. I going meetings all the time where people kind of reflecting on what that looks like reflecting on what the group meant to them reflecting on team responded. You know at the same time. They were facing an enormous personal challenges. How they were able to keep things moving forward and and going on there so everyone just in a in a weirdly different spot in one of the issues. That comes up is vaccination brian. What's what's nation policy when it comes to people coming back office rutgers university who is you know adjunct for them and i don't teach on campus primarily I will probably go the fall and because their teacher residency a couple times a year there. But this'll be the first time will be back there in a while and do the residency. But the only way. I'm gonna be allowed back is because i was back to rutgers was first university in country to basically say you want to come back to school in person. Come september them. You're going to be back to naked and people were like well. What if You know. I don't want to get back to we go to school somewhere else. It's pretty much you know but you know new jersey really impacted In a big way. And i think there's a lot of real Caution around this about making sure they keep people safe and that they can get people about the school You know in an in person environment who are choosing to do that.

And he knew that he was gonna get something but he didn't have to beg for it or anything and so she started copying lael for everything He went like her older brother.

I create a foundation an organization to help people in dogs. And i worked with a lot of cases and help everyone.

No gatekeeping, just head on over there. There's a pretty good search. This is episode 1762. And the continuing Siri. Good morning. Good afternoon. I am enjoys show and I have a question about one. If you hold looking then, um, spot watched that measures like blood pressure. I see a shooting from 42 like 400. I was looking fierce as to which one should I get? Yeah. I don't know how accurate any of these are. And I, You know, I use an Apple Watch, which does not mention measure blood pressure. The Apple does so many other things. But there are a number of so called Blood pressure watches, including the Samsung Galaxy, watch that does not. They tease that that does blood pressure, but they're waiting for FDA approval, and that should be a little bit of Ah. Red flag for you. The fact that FDA has not approved it yet for the Samsung and that Apple hasn't even attempted it, I think gives you some indication That is probably not that reliable. You know, when you're getting a getting your blood pressure taken, you know you You could buy these at home or you go to the doctor's office. And they put something called us fig A swig. MoMA momager on your That's that thing where they pump it up, and it's like gripping, gripping your arm. And then it releases it over time. And they have got a little uh, you know, stop watching their hand and they've got a little You know they're watching, and that's how they do. The blood pressure. Actually, nowadays is all pretty pretty automatic. I have a home blood pressure monitor home run makes him a lot of companies do That aren't too expensive, and I think that's a cuff is a better way to do it. I don't think that the problem is the watches. You know what they're trying to do? You know is they obviously they can't squeeze your arm period. Clear you'd go. I'm not wearing that anymore. So they can't do that the way they work. And if you look at the bottom of any of these smart watches, including the apple smartwatches, they fire light, usually green light. At your skin, and they can use the response back from the green light. They were receivers well to monitor the flow of blood. I am not convinced that anything on your wrist Can do that. If if something could. It would be also from home run, But I don't know if you've looked at the home run device. It is FDA cleared, but it looks like you're wearing I'm pretty large device on your wrist. It's not. It's not a watch. It's just it looks like a cuff. To be honest with you. I'm suspecting. Yeah, affect it Does. He's still goes like, squeeze it here, then it releases So I'm not convinced, um, I think is it Is it just for your own interest that you're doing this or has the doctor said you need to monitor your blood pressure? Offer my own interest. Okay s so as long as you understand that there may be some accuracy issues with it. One way to do that would be to get you know, a $60 cuff. And compare the results. Of that with the results from you know your watch and see how close it is. You might even you might even get a sense of. Oh, it's off, but it's off by this much always. If that's the case, then I guess it would be kind of useful. You could say, Well, you know, there are a number of them, Um says when Samsung gets its approval, that would be my first choice. Because I like the Samsung Galaxy watches. That's their own operating system. The rest of them, I think are mostly android where and my concern is, you know, I never heard of Yama or more pro. Half son. Blue Melody Peak Fun D E F G do smarter. I think there's a reason but I've never heard of the those of the those of the top. Blood pressure monitor watches. I just think they're not that accurate if you can find one that is FDA approved. Um okay. Okay. But you know, even even Apple, which has started to add blood oxygen monitoring to its smartwatch even that people were complaining that It's it's not. It's not that good. Apple has been promising to add blood pressure. If they do that will be the That will be the watch. There are Devices You can add to your apple watch that will let you You know, Homer on has these cuffs and so forth. I don't recommend the cardio at by the cardio blood pressure monitor. That is I've used it. It's not very accurate. I think I'll be honest with your own runs the company They're they're They're the best known company and blood pressure monitoring.
