Read a poem
"Today's tip is to build a reading habit by tackling a poem a day. Poems tend to be short, but can take you to amazing places. And so can help you find space in life for a little bit of beauty. As I talked to people about their schedules over the years I've learned that many people want to find more time to read. Along with volunteering and. Doing reading something that we know would improve our lives. But when life gets busy, it's easy to let it go. And once you let it go. Getting back in the habit can seem intimidating. Most books demand at least a few hours of time. Reading and little bits might not be very satisfying. Hence the beauty of poems. Unless you're reading T S Eliot. Elliott's the wasteland. Most poems are relatively short. You can easily borrow e books of poetry from your library through an APP like Libby, and then read through them on the kindle APP. Or. You can go to a website. such as poets dot, Org or Poetry Foundation Dot Org and find poems selected by their editors. In any case, you can get free poems on your phone quickly. And I'm guessing that you always have your phone nearby. And for the cause of building a poetry reading habit. This is actually a good thing. Notice when you pick up your phone. What do you do? Many people check texts or emails first and then look at social media APPS. As you find yourself doing this. Consciously clip to the poetry website or your daughter instead. In about three minutes. You can read a poem. A whole poem. which will give you at least some feeling of accomplishment? Whatever else you did or didn't do during the day you are the sort of person who reads poetry. Now, of course some poems are better than others. I've read through volumes from some of my favorite poets like Mary Oliver. Billy Collins Classic poets such as Emily Dickinson, and sometime stuff is awesome, and sometimes even with the vaster. Sit doesn't always speak to us. But. Poems do have away of going places that pros can't always follow. Dunwell upon can conjure up an image and a feeling. You can ponder that image and feeling as you go about your day. That image and feeling can take you outside your life for a few minutes. An elevate your experience. Putting a little beauty and to the moment. Not Bad for three minutes right. And as you find yourself finding three minutes here and there you'll start to see that you do in fact, have time to read. You just have to choose to do so. And so poetry can become a gateway to literature of all kinds. So today find some poetry. Put, it where you can read it. And, if nothing else, you'll end the day feeling like you put something a little special into your life.

Across Europe, Reopening Borders in Time for Summer
"And now let's move on to professor mark van rast who is our largest and he's also a member of a group of experts is working on the exit strategy from the virus here in Belgium I'm very happy that you're joining us I see every day on TV I'm not sure how you're finding your new fame at but I but I do have a lot of questions for you and and the obvious one B. and look Europe is opening up now we seen those restrictions to be lifted how worried are you I mean do you think that the situation is better now than it was two weeks ago actually you know we're flying blind from I think every viable to Libby for rebel fired and more we are worried because we're doing things and we're counting on both the common sense for people to follow the guidelines and that most people over interpret them in their own interpretation the feeling of flying blind because we're monitoring well of course we're only going to see the impact of the allocation of the measures in while I would get then they anything happening also so it would be a little bit of I'm not looking at these numbers however always optimistic mold you think but the way we look at it and M. professor just to pick up on that you're you're socially saying in ten days and Europe will be able to know with actual data whether we could be in for round two of coronavirus in ten days that would be something we could predict an estimate it is going to be different in in every country we're not the United States of Europe yet so every country have taken their own measures and also have their own exit strategy plans so this will be probably different in the different countries and you know where an inmate you know very well Europeans are really desperate to book a holiday people want to know whether they'll be able to travel or not in your mind in your view I know the European Commission these situations are saying it could be safe don't worry just give it some time what do you think of that do you think it's a good idea to actually get on a plane to go somewhere else in July it's going to happen in July I I think for multiple reasons first of all in order to go to a country of your own borders have to be open on the borders of the other countries ask us to be open so that's not that easy we're we've been living in our own national bubble while we're a couple of months already M. as in that's not going to change the the very back of the I know that some of the countries were to be important that they're pushing through up to open the border I think that the people will be a little bit afraid to fly I think they're afraid to fly they're not going to fly with with airplanes that are going to be completely filled to capacity so that's probably going to result in an airline is locked up in the flight of more applying many of the the airlines are are pretty desperate right now many of these are some of the airline companies might not reach you can love to life without being bankrupt so it's not looking good since you're saying essentially here there's there's two different tensions you know there is the companies that are desperate to get back up and running and the want to fly but also the the virus itself that contagious if or how continues it can get but also people and you do believe that the psyche of people at this point in Europe is a we're not past that said people are still concerned and that ultimately will mean no summer you stay at home and you still take those precautions that's probably going to be the end result is flying with with a couple hundred people in the same cabin without the this the thing that people are are are used to now that's not going to that's not going to be looked upon with great enthusiasm on the other hand flying with one and a half meters distance in between is not going to be commercially possible so we're we're a little bit of a fine pair up on the other hand I don't remember thank you cations in my own country all my life only thing back all of the situations that we didn't really necessarily that we're flying all over the planet it's fun but is it necessary mole and professor I wanna get your thoughts on the exit strategy I know you're working very closely with the Belgian government I'm sure you're working with European authorities true but what do you make of it because you do see a lot of countries are saying look we're not going to ask anyone to self isolate when they come into our country others are saying you will have to because we're still worried and in terms of just how quickly everyone is doing this differently it does feel that Europe is not very coordinated and the we were exiting the peak of the crisis what do you make of it we'll just look at the United States their motor coordinated either in the different struggles and we're not even the United States of Europe so it's bound to be well the Mets as normal yes and the and just very quickly you know we're still kind of thinking ultimately and we'll talk about the economic impact will talk about the implications of that has some people you know these measures have been very tough on people to be locked up at home for weeks what do you think there could be a scenario where we come to September fall kicks and we could see another pick up in the number of cases and we could be back potentially to a lockdown because that is a question the European governments are asking themselves can this happen again in two months well we have decades of experience where respiratory infections or back at it the second of September and then that gets progressively worse until you get the flu season and then it's a complete disaster if this would coincide with covert nineteen being present that would not be until on the other hand it is a bit different because now we will have more testing and compact racing and hopefully if we do that in in electric that is available hopefully we can we can slow down and that the Democrats third then we could in round one so the risk really is still there but we are betting on is that at this point we know the virus better we know how it works but we've also taken the social distancing measures the masks and everything that comes around and that's that's essentially what would change in around two of the virus which you're arguing it's still likely or could happen it is it is definitely likely we'd we would wish not to have an influence of fetal every year and we vaccinate people leaving and and yet every year there is an excellent season so it's two two weeks completely avoid the second of the second round of wealth will be playing teams that might be a tall order and just very quickly as the final question in terms of you know the vaccine that is still the biggest question mark I know there's almost a global competition China and the US Europe to try to get to the facts and quickly with the knowledge that you have the European institutions in the research that's being done how likely is it that we get this and the next year the global competition the global collaboration and competition that's a little bit in the past of course people are competing but still the more collaborating not competing yes we will give that up but it won't be that that early some people have hoped that by the end of two thousand twenty that would be a vaccine yeah that would be candidates faxing but they will not be enough production to colleagues and even part of the world so that is a liability Canary all it all will be twenty twenty one before we have the vaccine that can be that can be deployed just tell your what professor thank you very much for joining us and saying Brady Dr we hope to have you on the show many more times with hopefully better news okay thank you

The short version of the story is she wanted to go to. Uva We both got into vanderbilt which was much easier to get into back then need to stipulate that she wanted to go to Uva. Didn't get in at the last minute. And she called me she said. Hey we're going to college together so we went to college. We broke up the beginning but it was small enough school that it was hard to maintain that so we actually stayed together through college and then after college we broke up in our twenties and then found each other again later in our twenties star. Our marriage and we've got two kids and that's visiting Willie also meant. I was visiting Christina because I'd also known her and her family. You know all those years too so that was cool. I mean that was so great. Yeah yeah so I would stay with her. Go to your crazy. Frat parties and see what college life was like and come back. It was going to Ali's Frat parties made me not want to leave. You did you did you. Did you go to college. Visit him and go to parties and I did. Yeah that was an interesting question.

Stays here stays here. Cut that story. I'd like to say for the record. I had a jock. Strap ONS can thank you. Thanks again okay. So now your turn to go to college as Willie said my parents went to the University of Illinois and our whole family was from Chicago really in the Midwest so I always liked the idea of a big school but I couldn't go to Illinois because that's where my parents wanted me to go to of course so I looked at a lot of schools all around the country but then I went to Madison with my dad. He took me to the University Wisconsin to visit. And we just looked at each other and I was like. Oh wow like it's just such a special town. It's the best city the capital and they so they have you know big musical acts and there was a ton of politics happening on the sports. Were great and you know leaks Lhasa. Ross Yeah So I immediately fell in love with Madison and anyone I talked to was like. Oh yeah like. That's you know so it was it was. I applied to a ton of schools but I I kind of knew I wanted to go there but it's hard. It's a huge school far away from home and it's freezing. We didn't mind at this point. You're like you hit the ground running your like see you know what I'm GonNa do. I want to work so I graduated College in ninety seven. I came home so I came from Nashville. Came back home to New Jersey and I was just going to spend the summer at home and then go find a job and I was driving the not to Brag but I was driving the liquor delivery truck for wine and spirit world focused New Jersey. And so I did that to some that summer and I was having so much fun. That like bled all the way into Thanksgiving and Christmas and my parents were a job or what I was like. Oh this is going pretty well but I ended up all my bunch of my buddies had moved to Atlanta and so I just decided I'm going to move to Atlanta and figure it out and so I moved there. I applied to CNN And to the journal Constitution the newspaper down there the AJC didn't have a job. Cnn did have a job and that's literally got into TV. I took the job so I was your first job. It was I was an editor. It's actually at their sports network C. N. N. Sports illustrated which I remember perfect. Yeah was short lived but it was fun and it was like you know it was a bunch of young guys. Mostly guys my age like covering sports and watching Games editing highlights and like it was just fun you know. It was like a continuation of college. But you're getting paid not much but you're getting paid and so that was my first job. It was fun it really. That's interesting you know that 'cause underrated like the bars are open really late. Some of them were twenty four hours. Like it's a good party town. It's good and all the schools from the South. Like that's where you go. I remember it was like the open newsroom setup and so you'd be like I'm on the computer behind the you know the guy who's sitting at the desk on the left side of the shoulder so my parents and I would tune in and that was your first trying to get out and walk behind the printer. Let me just grab something. The printer looking mom and keep walking though when you were in college. What was your your focus. So I was a political science major which meant I didn't know what I wanted to do. but But no I love school. I had probably more fun than I should have. I would say but it was great and then I in turn Conan late night with Conan O'Brien. That was a good first step. I actually when I was working at that driving liquor truck. I thought maybe I wanted to be a writer for Conan to and I put together that summer. I worked all some run. It put together a writing packet and got the address and everything. I didn't know how anything worked. So he's got it and I put it in this big Manila folder and I remember the mailbox outside one in spirit world. I pause and I was like when I'm like a late night host someday on. I'll remember this moment in this mailbox is this is how it all began and Senate away dramatic. This is my ticket out and then like it took weeks and weeks and weeks and weeks and then I got a letter and I was like this is it went to the mailbox and it was like. I'm GonNa wait until I get home to open it and see when I start and all that and I open it up and it literally which I understand now it was like Not only do we not have position for you. We didn't read a single word of what you wrote. Because they have to protect themselves from liability. Of course they did something similar. I could say they stole it from me so like no one even looked at everyone hates you. Never show you literally like you. Don't think I think I wrote like monologue jokes and he was doing all those care. Those crazy like character the masturbating bear. You remember any of your monologue jokes. I'm sure they were like bad topical. Let's see that was ninety ninety seven bad. Clinton jokes or something. I'm so glad I don't know where it is awful. They're still time will either so after Madison Lane. What you Ju- Libby. What I do now so I have worked at. Espn four eleven wins Oscars Kate. I know she's well you. Yes so the film. The documentaries are different than the your world so the documentary one and our director and main producer. One we did not technically win one Oscar. Why don't you just say you want an Oscar? Because I don't have everyone's like where'd you put it? I was like well. I didn't really win. We didn't go on stage. It's not going on. Steve didn't mean you weren't a part of an Oscar. Winning the film wine were very excited. Okay corporate speak but also so my parents and Willie and Christina got dressed up in black tie and watch the Oscars from New York City on the Upper West Side. Sisters video of them celebrating. It was so cute. It was really nice. That's exciting made. America was the series. They right so I work at ESPN. So I started there eleven years ago when they were just kind of coming up with thirty for thirty which is our sports documentary series and so he started. I've done a lot of different jobs there like I. was in production a producer that I was just doing development like finding the stories and the filmmakers and matching them together and now I oversee the department. Espn films And a bunch of our content on ESPN plus which is the new streaming service. So we have so fun. Yeah it's really fun. What a cool job I know you not only get to work in storytelling right but these are real people. Truly aspirational story. Yeah thirty thirty s are not actually sports films like Oj. You could have shown very little football but you know it's the story of a man in a city and you know culture And so that's what we look for in everything. We do have some that they just finished one on Lance Armstrong. And one on Bruce Liu so those both were at Sundance which is really fun and I also think just in this moment of unscripted and All of the documentary stuff. That's happening in the series coming out like this is such a huge booming time and so for us to say we have here. I am I have money. I WanNa work with young hungry. Filmmakers and millions of people are going to see these like it feels like a really lucky place to be so when we go around. I mean I. We laughed after the first couple of years of thirty for thirty. Were laughing. We're like I can't believe who's taking my phone calls right now. This is so bizarre you know I love thirty really lucky woman to be running at that that department at ESPN awesome. Yeah thanks well. People say all the time they're like it must be really hard to be at ESPN. I'm not really. I honestly had really great mentors. They've been so good to me. I've and I know that's not everybody's story but I feel really lucky and about Libya's she's not really a sports fan so I always laugh that she said he has pinched. She's a filmmaker who happened. She makes she was working somewhere else and they made a film for. Espn ESPN said. Hey you're really good at that. You want to come work here. So if you ask her like who's in first place in the Eastern Conference Right. Now she data. I know it's not bad yet. She's running this huge department for ESPN YEARS AGO. For the fortieth anniversary of title nine. We did a series called nine for nine with nine directors and nine stories and we were really really careful that those weren't all like raw raw like the first to do this and the first two that I was like. No we have now. We have real history. There are real stories good and bad and so we tried to find really edgy. Stories of people would love. And we'll talk about because I think it's really hard to find stories that are marketable and that people are interested in seeing. And that's so sad to say. But if it's not Serena or a huge topic male or female. It's hard to get people excited. So that's a struggle sometimes honestly but we're constantly working harder to find really strong women's stories but also female directors. I always say women almost never pitched to me which is so interesting. And so. That's a huge concerted effort. Like anytime I go to festivals and like I you know you may not think to call me. But here's my car like if there's ever something you're interested in but there's so many amazing female stories so many we also do. We launched podcasts. Like almost documentary style audio podcasts. A couple years ago and my favorite one that we did actually is about Diana Rossi and sue bird Playing in Russia because women have to play to make money. They have to continue playing. They play all year so they all go abroad and they went and played for this guy. Shabby tie was actually a Russian mobster who owned a team in Russia. Cool but they're the way they talk about their life. Their cooley lived in a mansion and he would bring them like fresh. Strawberries are yet massages. It was like the total opposite of how their life is here and the WNBA but they made a ton of money and their life in Russia is so weird. Diana is hilarious by the way. And they just talk about this and then you know the dark side of that is shop tight like how he was funding all of that. And what his mobster business was already tell the stories he passed. Both of you guys are so accomplished in doing really interesting wonderful. It's been really fun since. She says she went Oscar since their film won an Oscar. All THESE THIRTY FOR THIRTY S. Get attention everyone is seeing like how great and how smart and she is because when you're on TV people think you're the you're the the one in the family who who does those things but lives doing these incredible things doing this great work and she's these deep dives and really interesting stories and you get jealous of her work. Sometimes the time she has to tell those stories honestly because ours is like turn it around. Get it on the show Sunday. That's she's taking months. She's making movie making films.

"First in line. Well let let let's. Let's let's get back to child. I WANNA I wanNA know about like growing up. So did you guys fight. We weren't fighters. One thing that libby hangs holds over my head. I you guys are probably like this too because I think it's generational but when we were young we watch totally age inappropriate movies which I wonder where my parents were. Now that I'm a parent I don't think it's I don't think it's a generally gets back then I still. I still porky's hurt. Yeah I heard you talking to. Kim Terrorizing her children terrible. But we so we I was into an and by the way we were in our old house so I couldn't have been more than ten years old and I was into the Friday the thirteenth movies. Oh Yes oh man. I'm Jim and I made so lip so with five or five and a half. Come Watch these five years old. This is worse than I remind you should as I said out loud. Yeah I should be imprisoned for this so I I would force her to watch it so she was five obviously traumatized. There's a man in a hockey mask in the woods behind our house. Probably Right of course five but Wade I why am I saying this? It gets worse though it gets worse. Tiny tiny cute little PINK BEDROOM. Where this little five year old would sleep and there was a little with like a ledge roof kind of right under my window and so for some reason. He forced me to watch the thirteenth. And then I lay in my bed and I get a little tap on my window and you guys remember the sound. It's CH J H. Yes so Jason's coming and you're at my window and I don't know sounds like Oliver. Yeah it just wasn't nice but think of the effort that didn't happen by accident. I'd to climb onto the roof of our house. Get up to her window knocking. Wake up yeah. I think she's still carries that with her. So I actually do scary movies and trailers including trailers trailers. I was like you though I watched Friday the thirteenth nightmare on ELM and watch them to and then I had to sleep in his room because I was like.

"And I was. Like this is like this is fun delivered right. I'd highway honestly why I went back to La. Yeah it's weird when you're used to right. I mean you live in the city and have made it. Were completely with your kids but for me I was just like all right and are tiny. Two Bedroom apartment was closing and it was like having two crazy monkeys in the house. Man Real but see our kids were born in New York and this is all they know. So it's actually not weird to them. It's still weird to us like my son who's ten plays baseball. But does you live at Chelsea Piers you go to Chelsea and his baseball is in on the upper west side. It's in the basement. His baseball is in the basement of an old bank and they opened them up and it's ten batting cages. That's become normal but we have friends from out of town. Where does your son play in the basement of that bank? No that's not normal. That's not how you play baseball while we're on the neighbor thing like we've lived in our building for three years and actually it's funny. This came up because like two days ago. The Guy Literally in the apartment next door opened the door and walked out and I was like. I've never seen you in my life. We live on the other side of a wall from each other and can touch hands through the wall. And you're not even familiar. Listen to me. Well so willy went went when Libby came home from the hospital. Do you remember infiltrating your world and totally screwing up your beautiful? You know only child life trying to cause trouble acting. I mean this is. We should talk more about which is interesting because we're all two and a half years. But he really those years of life without I mean we remember life sorta together you know at that age gap. You know it's like Oh. Wow there's this new being that is sort of come into my world yes I don't remember resenting you for that I mean. Maybe I'm too young to remember that but clearly you've lost Hat fifty percent at least attention actually lose more than that. When the baby's new but I you know the context. I do remember it in with our own kids. When my son who's our second child was born and my wife. Christine is in the hospital with the newborn. And I'm bringing our daughter Lucy into the hospital for the first time and she has no idea that on the other side of that door as this person who's about to change your life and also like be like you guys like be at her side for your whole life. It's like she has this life and this is how it is and I'm the folks attention it just me and then the door opens in that second. Everything changes so sure. I had that that moment of like. Who's this chick? What are you guys like his kids? We had fun. I don't remember I was also young enough that I was always just your knowing little sister. I think until that change when we got older and we actually had things in common understood. I was like oh I like you. I remember when you went to college. Sorry it took eighteen years but when you left I was like Oh wait I think I miss him and I think we. I think we like each other now. Similar to Katie. And I like when when I went to college sort of when I took me going away for us to get closer. Hopefully yeah what. We also are far enough apart that we were never in school together so we weren't competitive for friends. She wasn't showing up at our parties in highschool. You know she was just young enough that there was nothing competitive about our relationship. So I don't know bite. My Dad's really funny. My uncle's everybody's funny so I would say we were. There was a lot of humor in our house. What kind of staffer you into as a kid definitely sports sports movies love movies. Sporty House Sporty sporty. I in high school. I played football and basketball. Libby played tennis won the State Championship and ten is a really good. She's fallen off since then but I did. Actually I did when I was really young. I did summer stock. Doodle acting Not to Brag Kate now oh I think my mom vaccine. My mom saw like I was on this like all sports trajectory and she was like. Let's introduce some other some sensitivity and actually loved it. I was the only and you probably know this already. I was the only boy in Miss Hannigan. All-girl orphanage in the nineteen eighty-five Ridgewood. Summer start production of any so I figured production of all time has ever wanted to be was Anne Marie ever any never only in my mind and your grandfather your grandfather went to Stanley Cup semi correct with my correct. Oh yes my my great grandfather. Great Grandfather is in the hockey hall of fame. Herbie Lewis played for the Detroit Red Wings in the Thirties. And he was the captain of the team and he won two Stanley Cup. How and the crazy thing is. I can barely get across the ice on a pair of skis. Were those rings. Ooh That's a good question. I bet uncle Mike sort of the historian by the one of my favorite part. Not My favorite one of the funny parts. About my great grandfather's he was like a big star in his day. And this is a professional hockey player. He was the face of camel cigarettes and we had I mean. It's the thirties rights and nobody knew grip problem so we have framed print ads where he's in his full uniform. He's on the ice with the stick down. The ICE Maze Very Red Wings.

"By the license to here are falling out. Yes life it's just it's it's this is the first five years of your life. That's the whole book for that. Very light alight seller but interesting like who all live in my house I remember I guess I remembered this was in Chicago in Evanston Illinois which is basically Chicago just outside in the north And I think I guess I remember it may be more from photographs and images than actual but I remember birthday parties. Dukes of hazzard cakes. Remember our little house that felt like a big house and then like we went back and drove by and I was like that was the. That's not the house and it was the house but in my mind it was huge and I think it was two or three bedrooms. It was like a modest house on it. But it'd be great street with lots of kids. The kind of town that like had the block party and you know the neighbor would come over. I got some Zucchini and my garden. It was like that like you didn't like that world old school neighborhoods. They tried to find one here in L. A. and I live in sort of a semi old school neighborhood. Tau Block parties. Yeah you know. It's hard to find these days and it's suspicious special. It's actually really special for the kids. I would say Libya's founded though. Don't you think where you live? Yeah we live in the BURBS and I think even in New Jersey where we live. We had the block parties and we had the friends like the best friends across the street. Where my first sleepovers? So that when I was when I had I have two little boys in my had them in the city and they were learning how to ride bikes. My older run and we. I was just screaming at every intersection.
"libby" Discussed on Sibling Revelry with Kate Hudson and Oliver Hudson
"We moved in? Nineteen Eighty TWO NEW JERSEY. Five years old and Libya was even one maybe nine month less if yeah My Dad got a job with the New York Times. He was writing for the Chicago Tribune. I was born in Chicago. We both were and when I was five we moved to New Jersey when he got a job with the New York Times so forty years not in the city. But I've lived in the city for fifteen years but around is your data. Chicago native is that where is he from? He's from down state as they call it he's from Champagne Illinois And he went to the University of Illinois which was the street from his house and he says cost one hundred thirty five dollars a semester so his parents you're going there was in the late sixties and he met my mom there at the University of Illinois. Are they still together? I are crazy. Always a harmonious household consummate harling up fifty years got it. Yeah it was actually like it was people. I think you always look back in your life and your were there moments of strife and what was it. What was the adversity that we had overcome? There was little stuff but yeah it was a happy place we my dad was a writer for the New York Times. My mom was a social worker and then she was a realtor in our town after that and we had like a really nice good suburban life went to the school up the block and the high school up a couple more blocks and I would say it was like a pretty idyllic childhood definitely and you're in Jersey says in Jersey and Jazz Ridgewood New Jersey Bergen. And how often did you come into the city? That was a big deal. I think I remember for big birthdays. Like we'd get a limo and didn't get any of the perks. Here's the split. This is an important split. This is so my dad know this very real and I'm GONNA lean into it not so. My Dad was a columnist for the Metro. Section of the New York. Times have four seven years when I was growing up. 'cause we're five years apart and then he was hired after that. Don Hewitt who founded sixty minutes Read my Dad's comes in. Hey you ever think about doing TV. And my dad's a writer and they had him shoot a pilot of one of his pieces and they loved it and CBS hired him so he was making. I don't know what in nineteen eighty three to be the metro columnist New York Times. Not that much probably guessing and then a little more probably in the CBS years. So we always joke that. I grew up in the New York Times years. I never wrote a limo into the city. We took the short line bus into port authority. This is libby was riding limos into see elaborate Broadway production four and a half years his junior a different house that I lived in. Yeah Yeah but it was a big deal to go into the city and mom always liked and she still does goes to shows and she loves the city in the museums. And just the vibrancy here. Are they still there? So they just moved. I just moved into the suburbs a couple years ago and they followed there've been there was another step in there so in yeah they lived in New Jersey and then when libby left and went to college moved into the city because their life was so they lived on the upper west side for fifteen or sixteen years and then last year moved to Connecticut. Here's really haven't left this not a lot area. Yeah well except I went to college in Nashville for years. Which was a major. I loved it. Libby went to the University of Wisconsin. Oh Back Oh everything I loved it there. Did you guys know that you I mean? Clearly you're going to get into the television world based on your data I mean. Was that always kind of what you know. It's funny because people make that connection. Obviously because my dad was at CBS. And I got into the business to but you have to know that our parents are very mid Western so we've never like sat down and like had talks about like well. Journalism is a noble profession and ought to try it. It was just like by Osmosis and I could see that. He was traveling to cool places and meeting interesting people and he enjoyed his job and like it wasn't the old nine to five. Your Dad comes home with us. Shoulders slumped and throws his briefcase. He liked what he was doing. And I think just by that you probably have the same experience I was GonNa say it's similar. People always ask the same question. And you're like well. We didn't sit around a table and talk about scripts and a lot of his stuff on Sunday. Morning was personal. He did a lot of personal stories so there were cameras in our kitchen a lot of the time like they were his producers. We knew pretty. Well I remember at my wedding. They were they did a piece on my wedding and amy was crying in front of the church. Amy Was the first person I saw when I got out of the car and and she was like. I can't believe it and I was like you are not coming into the delivery room. This is where it stops. All good. Okay you know. What were the things that he would like? What would he do? Did a big one was coaching. Our Little League teams and like how outrageous and ridiculous suburban watching. Is You wrote a book about that eventually to WHO's basically an SAS than there was always some humor in it but he was you know he'd go to the Iowa State Fair and tell some great store he find these little kernels of stories. That don't look like anything on paper and then turn into some amazing story that says something about America and he wrote books about that and he did those pieces that like he was he did one in our house in New Jersey where Martha Stewart had. Just become big and she was like you can make a Christmas wreath out of just things you find in your backyard and in her backyard. Of course it was like these elaborate like figs and berries in that so my dad went in our backyard and there was like a Rusty Budweiser Fan and a tennis ball and like stuff like he was funny but also making some commentary and he was He he was always having fun but I I do remember. He not only did not encourage us to get in. I remember when I graduated from College. I was about to graduate. He's he was worried that it was going to get into it or he was worried that I thought that was the only thing that you could do so he was like. I need you to go like meet with people who have other jobs justin case because I was like I wanna do this internship and Semi went like. There's a guy in our town who worked at Goldman Sachs or something. I don't know anything about finance. I went had lunch with them. Because that's what you'd like. And he was like explaining the markets to me and I was like. I don't know what you're talking about and I'm not interested in what you're talk. No disrespect and then my mom had me. Go meet a family friend in. Remember the so well up in Connecticut. Who worked at northwest mutual insurance and it was literally like. Here's how term life works and I was like. Oh my God and that like made it official just rushed me into TV business so you were first born yes and and then you guys are four and a half years apart so you probably remember harbors or when she I remember life without libby. Remember life without living. I mean I was young. That's seeker autobiography by the license to here are falling out. Yes life it's just it's it's this is the first.

"libby" Discussed on The Toxin Terminator
"What if that could be my equation and in that moment I decided that if it was an all within my power I was going to take this overwhelming paint and turn it into something good turn it into overwhelming power and the reason I bring this up is the fact that mindset is a huge part of something that we we got rid of the bad when we brought in the good and Texas city that I don't think talked about often enough especially in the chronic illness community. The the doctors got love. You know they're wonderful but they've got their diagnosis code. They've got their pill or if moral ternate minded maybe it's acupuncture or an herb or whatever and that's all wonderful but if we don't have our minds under control it's GonNa be really hard to win any kind of a battle. It just is right. I think I shared with the earlier. I was actually interviewed by a nurse out just about a year ago. His pretty well known and he said I can guarantee you had you not had that mindset. At that moment you wouldn't have survived and I do believe that's true. The way my labs looked a cold could have killed me. Yep there's a story if you don't mind me sharing just super super quick because it encapsulates the mindset of things is and I. I don't know all the details behind the story but basically what happened is this gentleman was locked in a trailer and he for however was told our felt that it was like a freezer box and he froze to death and when he was found it was a trailer not a freezer box. There was nothing his mind was telling them that he was freezing to death but he was not and he froze to death. Yeah is that crazy? You're up so this is how powerful our mind is. It's huge and I remember thinking. Okay how am I going to practically do this right tonight? Always wanted to do in. Hadn't really ever done. It was write a book and so I said Okay during this time. I'm going to write a book on stress and I titled it the art of worry because we're all actually master meditators. We either meditate on the positive Tate on the negative and meditating on the negative worry. That's all it is and we're really good at that. So it's about retraining. Our mind retraining. Our Spirit our soul to get into the habits of instead of worrying saying okay. How can we turn this around? How can we find the positive? And this is not about being a pollyanna. We can be a very real about it. You know if you look at brain homes King David would lament these horrible things that had truly happened to him but one of the things I always loved in one of the concepts I teach. In revolutionary. Joy is complained like a king. You can complain and talk about whatever you want. Our only rule is this at the end of the complaint. You have to find a way that we can find joy or something positive that can come out of this moment right because we not be stuck left focusing on the negative or get in this really nasty move and that to me is probably the worst possible toxin we get ever encounter. Oh absolutely I'm so so glad that you're talking about this and I think it boils down. I mean what people are. If you're listening to libby story right now you're forgetting. She's got four children that she has caretaking through this whole process. And while you're sick and healing they are sick right. Yes our sixteen year old at that time was about twelve and yes she had lime in co-infections during that time in Mono And our daughter was really sick. She kept getting fevers as school. Couldn't figure out why I had sent her to school as read my plan to take care of myself. And they kept sending her home ended up she had a gluten sensitivity online and he was getting Over lunch I didn't realize it. So yeah so yes it was in. I remember my daughter. She was little. She was first grade. Second Grade Shoot. Just sit and cry. I determined that I would if even crawl to their room. Every night I would pretty much lost. The use of the left side of my body couldn't anything from the waist down was cane crutches if I could walk at all and in left handed south but I remember saying I will take kids in every night and I will play the piano or singer. Do something to just help them know. It's going to be okay. I need to make sure their mindset is okay fine we're GONNA make this number talking with Anna and I would say Anna in. This is all over. She loved Front We're going to go five together. And she looked at me and say you can't even walk. What are you talking about? It doesn't matter to just put it in your mind so I had her train for a whole year and at the very end of my treatment as well enough talk I was able to walk the Five K. My best friend Inside me as well as my mother-in-law and it was just such a beautiful moment of okay. We've made it through this way to make it to everything. I'm not wave the victory flag that everything is perfect in my life but I've made it to this milestone and I'm going to celebrate it and we have great pictures of US may best friend even got me a medal to wear a so-so blood incredible story and I think this really ties into your revolutionary joy. I mean just even the title itself is. Do you have stories that you can share? I mean not you know names or anything like that but I think when people realize the mindset you know what that's like when you see that light switch click for them. Yes I remember. One time is someone who had a really rough childhood in it was actually a toward the end of the program as she says to me. You know this at work that we've done along with the other things that we focused on has been more effective than thirty years of counseling in therapy. It has what I try to focus. On with revolutionary joy first of all revolutionary where revolting against circumstances and. We're turning towards something that we want. It always Join Happiness are not the same thing happiness you. What's going on around US joys? What's going on within us? In some out turning toward what you want revolting against your circumstances and finding that joy from event and then sharing that without a lot of things that we talked about in my program we talk about. What your natural inborn strengths are how you naturally attack tasks because very often we've been trained that opus of the single way that we do this and it saps our energy because we don't find the joy in that task because we didn't do it the way that we're designed to do it and so. I mean I remember I had one client who was really teetering on the edge of quitting her job. She was so frustrated and also talk a lot about core values and I remember her reaching out to me and just saying libby now they understand what I most value in my life and how I attack tasks I know how I can make. This job worked for me in work. Well it actually saved. Her saved her job because end the direction her career was going his. She is ready to throw in the towel and once she realized the way she was operating was frustrating. Thwarting her she was like. Oh okay I I know how to turn this around. Those are just a couple of different stores at another lady who had really severe adrenal issues and she did a walk. Run Five K with her daughter-in-law few months ago she could barely get off the couch. Then you know she go to work do her work and then go home and lay down. So yeah there's all sorts of stories. It's amazing how our mindset impacts every single corner of our lives because we're you know everything is related right absolutely. Ya and you know. So maybe what we need to talk about is. That's like the number one you know talks. They're even before food water. Environmental things is the between the two years. What are we doing there so that we can make good choices on the other side absolutely and you know. It's like a snowball effect. When we start making the right choices for ourselves. Easter having the right mindset easier and easier to collect better habits because habits can't be broken they can only be replaced by so what we wanted to upgrade our habits to things that work for us and for our health and not just always do the default. I love this. So we're getting kind of towards the end of our time libby. I want to make sure that you are getting out the points of your story. I think one last thing that I want to talk about is a little bit of self care. We're talking about getting our bodies through a healing process. But let's talk a little bit about self care. And maybe you're not the one with the chronic disease but maybe you're the person who's caring for someone with a chronic disease. Can you share some of your insights on that absolutely? I'd be happy to you. Know I didn't really understand what it was like two caregiver just as a little aside when about three years ago our son developed really strange sympathy was on the honor. Roll Student Council President Amazing Musician Super Brilliant and he just started having these weird sweating all the time he was sleeping well he his stomach was not all the time could not figure out what's going on in finally within a ten day window. He went from totally normal. Except these little symptoms to a non verbal autistic like state and we later discovered this mold. Biotoxin illness in that. He was getting hit from multiple different angles but he was just so ill that we went to all sorts of specialist. Trying to figure out what's going on it was terrifying to have your child go through that and remember several doctors just saying you know you're going to need to check him in. It's a one way ticket. He's not leaving. Probably you know need to be placed in a home. Here's disability paperwork. He's GonNa be disabled the rest of his life. I mean seeing this kid going from this totally bright future to baton about free superior in I remember calling our specialist or I'm specialists in Michigan. Ever seen anything like this in she said to me I'm only.
Los Angeles: Trump Pardons LA Billionaire Michael Milken: ‘He Suffered Greatly’
"President trump went on a pardoning spree on Tuesday for a WHO's who of individuals convicted of white collar crime. A total of eleven people were given commutations or pardons and this follows. How should we say troubling history of prior pardons from this White House including Joe Arpaio Scooter Libby and an Extra Sousa? There was no indication that he followed the typical Justice Department vetting process for these sorts of things but rather that he heard recommendations from a cast of characters including his personal lawyer and czar of corrupt overseas action. Talk about Rudy Giuliani. Perhaps the biggest name of the pardon bunch was Rod Blagojevich the former Democratic governor of Illinois. So get in. W T F. Yeah indeed I mean so. Blagojevich is a good place to start with all of this because it gives us an example a window into the kinds of people that were pardoned on Tuesday. Blagojevich solicited bribes for political appointments including for one Barack Obama's open Senate seat after he was elected president The selling of a Senate seat is not something that typically happens in America. He was impeached and removed from office and Blagojevich had completed eight years of a fourteen year term and trump commuted the arrested on Tuesday. We have commuted the sentence of Rod Blagojevich. He served eight years in jail. A long time and I watched his wife on television. I don't know him very well. I bet him a couple of times. He was on for a short while the apprentice years ago very nice. I don't know. Wow imagine thinking the apprentices like a good judge of character. It's not even a good show. Well okay. So presumably. The rest of the pardons were not all people featured at one time on the apprentice right so like who else got him. It would be incredible if they were Unfortunately they're not. There was Michael Milkin who is referred to as the quote Junk Bond King. He was accused of taking part in an insider trading scheme and pled guilty to several counts of securities violations. Now he had served twenty two months in prison and since he was released he has been funding medical research into cancer more recently. Ironically though when milken getting in trouble in the nineteen eighties one of the people pursuing charges against him was Giuliani. Who was then the top prosecutor for the Southern District of New York how the turntables according to The New York Times One of the people that suggested this part into trump was Nelson peltz. He is a billionaire investor. Who held a ten million dollar fundraiser? For Trump's twenty twenty campaign this past weekend again. This is normally not how this would work recommendations pouring in from random personal or business acquaintances acquaintances at events for your reelection campaign. So I'm sensing a bit of a pattern here in terms of decision making. Yeah so the other two high profile ones here were for former New York City police. Commissioner Bernard B Kerik and a former owner of the San Francisco Forty niners Edward J debartolo. Junior someone's GonNa assume that these fellows they did all the similar things. Yeah basically. Yeah I mean carrick was found to have accepted a two hundred fifty thousand dollar quote unquote loan from an Israeli billionaire while he served as Interior Minister of Iraq. The issue there was that he didn't disclose it Carrick. Later pled guilty to eight felony tax and false statement charges now for deer Tolo. He actually never served a prison term but paid a million dollar fine after pleading guilty to concealing extortion attempt in Nineteen. Ninety Eight. Believe it had to do with a Casino Boat. Type situation. I would like to read a little bit more about it as well Interestingly as well for him DEBARTOLO was among the host of a pre inauguration. Party for trump in two thousand seventeen so to recap just these four examples. It was a long list of people who committed pretty major financial crimes and weren't necessarily the first people on top of mind for

The 'On Point' Iowa Caucus: Where Do Voters Stand?
"This is on point Magneto Birdie. We're doing something a little bit different this hour. Were experimenting with an on Point Mini Caucus. Because the Iowa caucuses or about three weeks away now and so we're kind of we've created this metaphorical room in our minds. Eye Radio version of a Iowa precinct. Here and seeing what Iowa voters think as they look towards basically casting their first votes In this presidential election season we started out the hour hearing from supporters of Senator Elizabeth Warren and Senator Bernie Sanders before the break. We I heard from two neighbors in Cedar Rapids Iowa. Who won who was all in for Mayor Pete Buddha Judge and another and Solomon who is still going to stand the corner for Cory Booker and wait to see who might convince her to move somewhere else and now? Let's talk about people tussling over Vice President Joe Biden. Here's the moment yesterday from the Democratic presidential debate in Des Moines. Where former vice president Biden really noted his broad support? He said that he has nationally so here he is look. I've been the object. She's affection now more than anybody else. I taken all the hits. He can deliver. And I'm getting better better in the polls my going up and by the way I have overwhelming support from the African American community overwhelming more than everybody else in this operation Vice President Joe the last night and when he said I've been the object of his affection now more than anybody else on the stage. The vice president was referring to President. Donald Trump. Let's go to Jane Who's calling from Fairfield Iowa Jane. You're on the air what who do you think you're going to be caucusing for thank you very much for your show My my husband and I have had The same issues as I think it was very league. Who wasn't sure who she was going to vote for In the caucuses who she was gonNA side with And Our experience was that there were a lot of good ideas out there that you know when we went to see each candidate we thought yeah. That's a good idea. Or that's a good idea. And that's a good idea and then about two weeks ago we went into See Joe Biden in Grinnell and we realized by you know listening to him being with him. Yeah that we were for sure going to call 'cause for him and The reasons I mean I know I have to be sync but One thing is that he can take the reins of the government immediately He doesn't he's completely capable. Oh and he's he's He's very cogent. His answers were extremely informative and comprehensive comprehensive. He's very competent and other reason is that he he wasn't ranking about anything he was. We felt much better or from being with him because we feel that the ideas presented by most of the candidates will find their way to policy in the united the states. But this is a man who is kind is only mentioned his generous of heart and he's very competent. So we I feel like he has the best chance of unifying that country anything else important. It's unify the country's right. Well Jane thank you so much for your call. Let's go to Robert. WHO's calling from Grinnell Iowa Robert? You're on the air. Hello yes we're we are definitely definitely caucusing for Bernie the last time around we caucus for burning. We knew eight at vowed. Second Amendment voter never voted re- democrat in his his life he caucus for Bernie. It was about healthcare Bernie is willing to make changes. People voted for trump. Because they wanted a change they. I didn't want things as they were. Which is what Hillary is not going to change anything? They wanted changes so they voted for trump. Because it was it it was a vote for either no change or vote for change and they voted for trump. That's why we've caucusing for Bernie Bernie is willing to change things. So that means that you definitely wouldn't caucus for senator. Sorry doing that. Vice President Joe Biden not definitely not Biden. Okay okay. We'll Robert. Thank you so much for your call now. Okay we've heard from various folks who have their mindsets on their on their candidates but it turns out that about right now in Iowa. Iowa seems as if undecided voters undecided. Iowans might be forming the biggest block of Iowa caucus goers. Let's talk to go back into our own point caucus caucus room and talk to to currently undecided Iowans. The Real Wenzel joins us from Waterloo Iowa. She's Laura's director of marketing for Ymca of black of county and is currently decided perhaps leaning towards Andrew Yang Laurel. Welcome to you. Hello it's great to have you and also also from Cedar Rapids Iowa. Tom Fuller joins us. Tom is a retired maintenance supervisor. For the city of Cedar rapids. Tom Is currently undecided. As well did did have his heart on senator or his mindset on Senator Kamala Harris before she dropped out of the race so Tom Welcome to you. Okay so Laura let me ask you first here here. Whoa what's keeping you undecided right now? What have you not found in any of the candidates that you feel like you can throw your full support behind a unifying presence? I think is what I don't see in any of the candidates especially last night on the debate stage age. I was really disappointed that there is nobody that was wanting to come by Ya with the rest of the candidates and be like. Let's do this together because is inevitably. That is what is GonNa Happen. Ray Inevitably we're GONNA have one candidate and it's going to be Democrat versus Republican. But I don't feel like anybody is on the same page on that stage and it's frustrating. Because I want a unified spirit within the party which is why I go to caucus because I go to caucus for the policies of the Party as well as the policies of the individual. Okay so tom you actually truly still undecided or you kinda trying to be leaning one way or the other well I'm still undecided. I am I to me. It seems like we have a a large field of very qualified qualified people and so That makes the decision harder because they're all good so what I'm considering going to is Someone that can immediately restore our credibility With the world We think we're the laughing stock now. And I think we need to regain our The Mantle of leadership and respect and get our credibility back back and a friend of mine who was a cory booker supporter. Very adamant he just the next day went to Joe Biden very strongly and so I've been looking at Ah Biden That would pretty much. I hope restore credibility with the world pretty much outta the gate and it seems to me that when you have this confusing Mass of people that having somebody with the roots being with Obama and all of his is years in the Senate That sort of a direct line with all these other candidates kind of warming around rounded doesn't let me if I may just let me just tip toeing here again Because Lorenzo did I hear you Kinda side it was very strong side regarding regarding Joe. Ab Thinking about Joe Biden. But you're it sounds like anybody but joe I mean I think that it's a fallacy to assume that his credibility outside of the United States is going to provide any sense of security when he's an office I think that unfortunately impeachment aside the The investigation that trump was going going for it has really broken thy confidence in Joe Biden. And that's something that we haven't really heard at least I haven't heard much about Out You can be darn that he's GonNa late into that on the debate stage if Biden becomes the nominee. And and. I'm concerned I'm concerned. It's going to be another Hillary Clinton where you know you supporter. You'll like her and then all of a sudden this thing comes out and it's like Oh okay so. Let's listen coin to unify unify the party. So let me ask both of you got a couple minutes left with the two of you and Tom. I'll start with you. Is there anything that you heard from your fellow Iowans this hour. That might convinced you one way or the other not yet the to women's that go to the same church or re really really Enlightening and I'm going to re listen to this and Listen carefully to what they had to say. Cedar Rapids Nothing you know. No no we pick for many yet. it's still not three weeks certainly very interesting points. They made I still think maybe I'm I'm leaning towards Biden Haydn The reason that trump went after him I feel like trump thinks that he's the strongest candidate and and that's why he attacked him. I'm hurry everybody thinks he's the strongest candidate. I mean you can see it on the debate stage last night. They wanted to give Elizabeth Warren the last word and then all of a sudden Biden was able to rebuttal before the commercial break. I mean everybody expects Joe Biden to win this nomination Shannon I I think that's the disappointing thing is that We we have all of our hopes and dreams and this guy that is just. She's tired he looks tired. He looks you know like like he has so much that he wants to give by. He physically is just not going to be able to do it. And I I understand. Stay on that So that's why I'm just like you know you are. You are a great idea and if you could just throw your support against another our candidate I feel like that would be best in the end but you know that's not GonNa Happen for alcock Laurel. Did you hear anything this hour. That might have helped clarify in the direction. You're going to go in a couple of weeks. You know I did I. Did you know I've been. I've been fighting with my interest in Elizabeth Warren. Because I remember when I first saw her on the daily show with John Stewart and she reminded minded me of my history professor. Because that's what she wants and I have been fighting with that instinct to feel you know cast down in by her in a sense like she knows everything but at the same time I do feel like she has the best candidate on that stage and that her policies are really about the people they impact. They will impact me and my family with my son who needs long-term long term care Because he's disabled I just I'm ready for a woman. I'm ready for that feminine touch so I really if you like between the debate last night and what I heard today Elizabeth Warren seems like the best win and if I might interject I thought thought we'd be passed having I've having to think about either having a man or woman and that we would just be at the place where or we would pick. The best person is really. We've never we have that. We're not that far down the road yet. We shouldn't gender shouldn't matter it should just be the best person and it's I'm I'm pretty disappointed that we haven't gone on that far yet. Well Tom Fuller from Cedar Rapids Iowa. Tom Thank you so much for joining us in our little mini any caucus here really appreciate supporter and definitely go back. And listen on radio DOT ORG. That's where you're gonNA find it okay. Let us know what you think about. What an libby had to say and and Laura Wenzel from Waterloo Iowa? Thank you so much for joining us in our little mini caucus room here seeing you. It was a great opportunity and I hope that everybody everybody that's the thing goes out and caucus on February third. Yeah same here definitely and everybody should always participate in the electoral process as much as they possibly awesome. Cancel Laura thank you again okay. So that that was worthy more fascinating hours that I've had a chance to listen to so let me turn back to our on point news analyst Jack Beatty the Marvelous Jack Beatty. Who's been listening in from Hanover? New Hampshire Jack. We've got about two and a half minutes left here. What did you hear well? Well I heard voters who were just not only interested but intensely interested and and and and Laurel we actually. We heard an informed. Cy I mean even her. Cy was informative. We knew what she meant. And and it you know the one of the knocks on the caucus focus is undemocratic he to the no secret ballot. You've got to stand at a at a at a place for polling placer church basement for hours you've got to do it in public but on the other hand that encourages people to talk in public and look how these people talked to each each other. Not Past each other met. The arguments met the objections. Saw The merit In the other person's point of view it seems to me it modeled old Iowa's citizenship at its best. I I would agree right. I mean hearing hearing and in Libby and Lorella Lorella and Tom and and Barney and Mike all engage with each other was really inspirational. But as you said the actual caucus itself I mean I read someone described it a sort of like. It's almost a student council student president election because it can be so wild but to your original. Appoint though Jack was made at the beginning of the hour we've got about thirty seconds left here. Is there anything that you heard in these voters. That changes your your concern that you know. The Iowans wins. Don't really pick winners. Well their concern to pick a winner and that may matter as much as anything I mean. I didn't hear here purity. I didn't hear someone saying well. My commitment is to this candidates ideas above everything. Everyone seemed to hedge. I want onto winner. Maybe they'll pick one right. That definitely came through loud and clear with with all of our Iowa state but the reasons why they think their candidates might be a winner. We're quite different from one another which was absolutely fascinating so Jack Beatty Point News analyst with us from Hanover. New Hampshire the New Hampshire primary hot on the heels of the Iowa Caucus. Jack ackward diving all in now. Thank you so much for joining us today.

"Seasonal movies any movies that involve the changing of seasons particularly false sense. It's late September that you really feel like get it right or really annoy you. It has happened end where I'm watching TV or movie and they'll claim to be in New York in October and then you see that Jerry flowering and you're like that's April so they've just bust in a bunch of like a silk leaves and put them on the ground. I always hate that when there are people in like a winter interstate neural bundled up but there's no breath coming out. You can't see their breath. You're all wearing earmuffs like come on. What are you doing to us? Put It in post then drives me crazy so fun. Fact the breath and titanic was added in post and to make it they had to get really cold room and align it with black velvet and have people talk as they filmed these puffs of warm breath and then they took those and superimposed them. A jacket rose loading on wreckage now keep in mind. This was in one thousand nine hundred ninety seven when cell phones were the size of your shoe and before you use a filter on them to make you look like tiger so come on movies you can do this so do you have any kind of celebrations of your own. When it comes to seasonal thing? Are you ever for hitting the like scarecrow I'll at Michael's in August whenever they start putting out like my own personal -nology yeah ah terrible with personal traditions and things like that so maybe I just get enough of it in my day job. They don't carry that into my personal life. It makes it I do feel like commerce screwing us up because we used to wait until we saw these cues in nature and now literally like at Walgreens. It's like back just cool season in July I went to cvs yesterday whole Pumpkin. I'll what do you think about the way that human beings take cues from their environment well. I think you right there just proposed a great Michael's phonology steady where you look at overtime win that Pumpkin establishes itself itself and how that has just crept earlier and earlier and it's probably due to climate change so you know you probably publish that Oh my God getting we are getting my masters uh-huh now that I have my PhD in twitter birthday polls I might as well get my masters in what the retail industry calls Christmas creep or holiday creep which sounds like a guide bar who thinks his Santa hat is charming but you're like please under no circumstances talked me so this early sales tactic. It's been in effect since Victorian Times in a slate article. They cite a Philadelphia Inquirer quoted saying gift buying has begun in earnest. It seems to get earlier every year here now. That article was written in nineteen o one so people have been complaining about this for plenty of time how has climate change affected craft stores and the plan at an phonology because I mean this is a hot topic. Obviously how what what is the data really showing so the data are really clear that when it is warmer or when other climate variables are of wack that the plants and animals are are likewise out of whack and the most responsive seemed to be the plants and usually in the northern hemisphere they will react with earlier phonology so when it's warmer they will respond with flowering earlier and that could be a couple of weeks earlier could be six weeks earlier and insects sex are slightly less so it appears there are less responsive to climate cues and birds even less so and that could partially because birds are migrating greetings from elsewhere where they're not getting the same climate cues and so if it's a really warm you're here might not be a really warm year in their wintering grounds so they could be getting different cues but yeah climate change is impacting all kinds of things and not only does that impact that one organism or even that one species sees but if plants flower earlier because it was a really warm year but then let's say the insects aren't responding quite as readily but they're emerging being like at the same time they always did while when they emerge the plans that they're used to munching on those nice fresh young leaves well those might be fully established and be rough tough difficult to digest leaves and so then the insects might suffer because of that and then the bird strope at the same time they always do and maybe there are fewer insects or the the whole thing could just be messed up so that's ecological mismatch and climate is a likely contributor things like that and can temperature differences is just a few degrees make that big an impact. How does that happen so that was pretty species specific? Yeah even a couple of degrees can make a big difference and what about fall if it staying warm or longer what's happening with those cues yes so looking plans again. Just because plants are probably the most well studied I did and the easiest to study and so it's possible that some of them might drop their leaves earlier than they should just because their leaves have lived their life so plants may have a shorter order growing season if it gets too warm or the growing season might continue longer wait is that good don't WanNa continue growing and why aren't they marketed pitted gummy vitamins that promise fuller leaves and longer stems the growing season and the length of the growing season than impacts all kinds of things like nutrient cycling ruling so when a tree is an active during the growing season. It's fucking water. It's looking up nutrients from the soil and impacting the whole ecosystem and in doing so and then if it drops its leaves. It's doing less of that so the more time that all those troops are active can really impact the whole ecosystem not just that one tree or not even just the insects texts that might be depending on it but everything around when the leaves fall off of trees who's munching on what's happening like are they important for ground cover or can they pretty much stay or go. They're really important for ground cover and by the time the leaf falls and is dead on the ground then you're entering the realm of of microorganisms and decomposed and things like that so there are some insects and invertebrates that might munch on them and then you quickly get into fungi and bacteria that are eating in decomposing him. Should you rake your lawn or not. I'd say not unless you are a fire hazard and I don't want to encourage anybody to create eight fire hazards around them but generally maintaining things in the most natural way possible is the way to do it so contrary to trump's advice to rake our our forests pick your the floors you know the floors of the forests very aboard Sir all we gotta do I say leave them and maybe take on some some other strategies to prevent fires but yeah leaving your leaves on the ground is good because the leaves are the trees have taken those nutrients and created those leaves and and then when they fall you're completing the cycle and the nutrients can return to the soil. Could you break your leaves in pile jump in them and then spread them out again. Heck yes recommend recommend doing so. Did you ever do that growing up in New England yeah a little bit I we used to do that where I grew up and now I think wow there's so many many mites on you but I still want to do it. I just want to do it in a full scuba suit because I'm afraid of like lingering ticks this stuff. Oh yeah ticks are problem but I think otherwise you probably boosting senior immune system and interacting with all those great microorganisms. I think it's a good thing you get a check your crevices. You're good to go there. I do love this time of year is my favorite favorite time of year for like dogs jumping into leave piles. Oh it's the best and also Halloween costumes what about Flimflam that you would love to debunk about seasons or climate change. I mean there's a lot there but what myths about seasons or autumn. Are you like yeah so I'd say climate change is a hugh question. Is I mean we're screwed right. Yeah climate change his here hits real and it's big bad news. Let's repeat that climate change as his real and it's big bad news what can we do but I think we also shouldn't forget about all the other big bad news out there like the Amazon rainforest is burning to the ground in addition to taking big climate change action seven at a government level on an international level of course all of those things but there are other conservation related actions that we can also take that helps give more species of fighting chance come climate change because climate change is happening already but if we don't plow over habitats than we're giving more species sees a chance to to have a go and actually survived through the changes that are coming. Is there anything that you do in your life knowing what you know to to help mitigate it on any level you can. I mean other than voting which we all know is the most important yeah that is totally the most important in addition. I killed all the grass in my lawn and have have planted a lot of native plans to create its habitat for some bugs and birds and created our own little place where things can be a little bit not even greener bind more natural and more inviting and because in l. a. l. as just such a huge huge city that takes takes up so much space than having little pockets where animals can be is really helpful at a really local hyper local backyard level. We can invite all of those things to live. Do you ever sit out in bug watching bird watching see what comes in hangs out yeah. What have you got well? I used to work from home which was amazing because I would just start with the wind all day with my binoculars it get really distracted but had a great time with my bird Guidon identifying everything and for a while had trail cam set up in a tiny tiny backyard in the middle of Los Angeles but was constantly thinly amazed and fascinated by the visitors that we would get it would be raccoons just having parties back there but just seeing them do their thing at two. Am on our little camera was fantastic. Are those expensive. They're not get one for one hundred bucks or less and you should do. It and I've been really tempted to take it with me. If I'm camping on vacation somewhere I could put it up in the woods and just kinda see what else is. There haven't quite gotten to that step yet but just next day four grizzlies how `bout it smelled something interesting. Quick aside. What about Hummingbird feeders? Is it bad to leave him up. Flimflam considered debunked so having humming bird feeders won't deter little friends from flying south and in more southern outhern regions keeping them up may actually help out migratory hummers who need a pit stop or who are overwintering in your region. You can also plant native flowers especially for those that have seeds which is a more natural way to have bird feeders in the art if you prefer to do that I have a hummingbird feeder right outside my window. Let me tell you it's like having an aquarium. Am Meat out of the whole world maybe the humming birds are like man this restaurant's great. It's got a terrarium with one big weird lady in it and sometimes she doesn't even bothered wearing pants. I can see a future me. That's a bird lady and I like her. How our borders seeing the change in seasons do you get a lot of data from from burgers? Thank God we do yeah. Burgers are just such meticulous notetaker yes and they love their lifeless and that enables us to go back a couple of hundred years really to see when birds were arriving. Will birds were around and so it's really a lot of the work of UH phonology is finding those old records so yeah birds words up oh. How did I not ask this next question yet? What in the daylight is wrong with me? What do you think about daylight savings time? Let's get over it no more no more by. Do we have to do that. Thank you that makes them feel so much. Better it usually paws right around my birthday a which is a bummer and it gets dark so early and people have like heart attacks from losing an hour of sleep. It's so bad for people okay heart attacks car accidents. No can I ask you questions from patrons. The athletes okay so many all right but before we get to your Patriot questions you may here a few words about sponsors of the show but before that these sponsors make it possible for allergies to donate to a different cause each week of the largest choosing and this week libby be picked save.

Yes okay and so does your work take you kind of to closer to the polls. Would you say yeah I at least that's what I'm most familiar with and far less work has been done in tropical and subtropical worlds as far as phonology he's concerned and that's kind of a wide open area for research and there has been some work done on plants especially that live in tropical subtropical areas but yeah those cues aren't quite as strong so if any of you guys out there have lived in in Arctic or even temperate areas you know that comes spring you kind of feel that energy to just live life again and to get out of your whole and do the things so uh-huh animals and plants feel that to an extent too so there's a real spring pop of phonology and so we have records for hundreds of years because because of that where hundreds of years ago people were excited by like who who I saw this first flower today I saw this first bird today after so long of not seeing being and being holed up in my living room for months so in closer to the equator there are certainly more subtle fina logical article events happening of course fall leaves may fall a week her three later than the previous year or spring may spring early so libby says the the more data you have over more time the better sense you get of the whole picture and just like firstborns have way more baby pictures neatly tucked into albums than their younger siblings. Some seasons have better records and so it's spring is probably better documented than fall say yeah and and and likewise it's easier to see when that first leaf shows up on a tree than it is to see when that firstly falls yeah that's true I came out there was a pile I can tell you what is a rundown of the function of each season. We did it. They go summers this feeding season and then kind of like.

"He's his keen mind for plans. Libby woke up the following morning feeling at once groggy nervous and excited. She was feeling groggy because she had managed to wake up very early previous morning to do some detective work with dish and to figure figure out if the new family had a chinchilla as a pet even though she had gone to bed a little early that night she still l. felt like she needed a little more sleep this morning now. She felt nervous because she knew that she and her mother were going to do a a very big thing. They were going to visit the cortez family and bring them a gift. This was concerning in many different ways ways. I she didn't like going to new places and hearing the new sounds and smelling the new smells second. They needed to figure out what housewarming gift to give them and third. She didn't really know the cortez family. They seemed nice especially when paco but she had only just met them and they were going over to their apartment already but she he also felt excited because she would discover something that had been a mystery for both her and dish what kind of pet live with juan pablo and his family there had been clues that pointed to her favourite animal a chinchilla but mr cortes said that the pet that was actually something called a bio which was possibly a kind of short eared rabbit but mr cortez did not know the word english so the mystery was still alive in visiting their apartment meant that libby would have a chance to see the pet herself so it was a big day a very big day and she knew she needed to be prepared preparation. She learned from dish was key for big days. The two of them had developed her adventure checklist list where she donned the cloak of safekeeping and the mask of on and off in visibility as well as collected snacks and water just just in case there is also being properly dressed for the occasion out door clothes that were appropriate for the weather dressy clothes close for times when she accompanied her mother at business meetings and comfortable clothes for well always and probably most important was that she needed to make sure that she had eaten a good breakfast and lunch and of course dinner this made the biggest difference france when there was a big event like meeting new people or going to an unfamiliar location the meals needed to be hardy stick to the ribs foods like stew or oatmeal with nuts or tomato and cheese paninis is with the crusts cut off of course but special treats also helped like buttered biscuits or strawberry smoothies or most most recently guava past toledo's so that morning along with her breakfast sausage and sliced apples her mother gave her to to guava pasta litas the gift from the cortes family that they had delivered the previous day they were delicious. Truly delicious not too sweet like the candy's her grandparents sometimes gave her but also not too strange like the whatever it was that the circle of family gave them for christmas last year. It was some kind of milk soup with bread in it. She didn't even even want to try that. The pest alitas melted in her mouth and she was able to taste the sweet tart flavor of the guava all morning long it gave her confidence and it helped her focus on the biggest task at hand choosing a housewarming swarming gift to give them we can pick up some things from fresh market today suggested her mother like a bag of really really high quality coffee or maybe chocolates jams special things like that libby certainly liked the idea of special things like chocolates jams but she certainly did not like the idea of going to fresh market they had already gone onto fresh market a few days ago when her mother had taken libyan a morning of errands no she did not want to repeat that but it also it didn't seem like the right kind of gift at least not for one parco. I'm sure he might like the taste of chocolate and jam but was really what he wanted. She decided to discuss the matter with dish to get his opinion. Well tell me what you know about him asked dish with his get right to business face. <hes> will you know about the cabrillo you or maybe chinchilla. She said correct said dish chinchilla is still on the table due to a possible translation asian error so what else he's nice. He likes guava pasta. Litas boo doesn't and said dish under his breath libby had saved half of her remaining past alito and given it to dish who had savored every every nibble and he makes contraptions. She added with a nod yeah. You said that before said dish who who then leaned back slightly. Let's talk more about that. I have a feeling that the contraptions are going to be important and <hes> he makes them out of paper things roles and i think i saw a plastic bottle maybe and then wires and strings oh spools. Now spools are fun. I'll be the first to admit that said dish with a cat shrug ugh but what i am hearing is in a word recycling recycling libby asked last not quite understanding recycling repeated dish everything you just said except maybe the spools can be found in the recycling bin. I'm thinking you could see what is in our recycling and give them the best stuff you know for his contraptions libya's quiet as she imagined the recycling she had seen gene newspapers and plastic containers and glass bottles in the blue recycling bin under the kitchen counter then she started to imagine more are magical things like folded paper animals and little plastic robots and glass rings and bracelets. Those sorts of things would make a wonderful gift okay. She said as she stood up. I'll check libya's plan did not make much sense to her mother. Her mother tried to convince her that unloading. Your recycling was not really really a housewarming gift but libby was determined in libya mother knew that when libby was determined there was little that could be done so they struck a deal. If libby went with her mother to fresh place market to get a few nice treats and and then they returned right back home then libby could bring a bag with a few clean recycling items inside that she could then give to one paco and libby also agreed that libya's muammar would do the explaining this was fine with libby in fact other than the going to fresh place market part. It was perfect. Libby just wanted to give one pakalitha gift. She didn't want to explain anything and she hoped that one palko within show her his pet his pet that was still possibly acidly a chinchilla and then the mystery would be solved they did go to fresh place market and they did get treats including coffee and chocolate and gem. There was also a box of tea and a bag of bath salts. Her mother was sure that they would like the bath. Salts even though libya insisted that they would not libby collected five items from the recycling that she thought one pocket with like a paper towel tube and aluminum luminary foil container that had the metal teeth along one edge a washed and dried glass salad dressing bottle and the best first thing some white packing peanuts that shriveled up when you dribbled water on them. She wasn't sure how he could use the packing peanuts but watching them shrivel up was a delight surely he would enjoy that and then after lunch libby tied on her are cloak of safekeeping but she chose to keep the mask in her bag. There was no sense in being invisible they were giving gifts left's libya's mother collected her gift bag of treats and libya took hold of her bag of contraption materials and nodding nodding to dish. They headed out the door. Now liberty did not go through the adventure checklist with dish because they had already done that for the trip to fresh place market and besides she wasn't leaving the apartment building only going to another floor. It was a kind of adventure but not not one that required the full checklist. No the cloak of safekeeping would be enough when they went into the hallway way however she wished she had brought her mask of on and off in visibility because the hallway outside the elevator suddenly got very active active when her mother had pushed the button and the two of them had stood by the doors hallway had been empty but when the elevator later arrived the door to nine three suddenly opened and lawrence one of chad the dog's owners came dashing out out toward them hey their mind holding the elevator libby was fine with lawrence. She didn't not like him. It's just that he it could be too much. Sometimes whenever he spoke he spoke like he was in front of an audience or something he got big and he swept his arms this way and that he also didn't understand that she did not like to talk. He always asked her questions like so libby. What is on the agenda today and then he would laugh. She never answered and he always followed up with. That's okay. Sometimes i feel feels shy too so as he came sweeping toward them she wished she could turn invisible but if that that was not enough right at that moment mr bosch's door opened and he poked his head out long enough to frown and say <hes> uh-huh f- and then go back into his room now libya had no idea why he did that and it didn't matter something bothered him him and he just went back into his room. It was fine but this moment seem to bother lawrence and he leaned over to them both in whispered grumpy grumpy much and then laughed libby didn't like that she felt that if mr bochu wanted to stick his head out the door say hum f- and then return back inside that was fine he could do that. Lawrence didn't need to say anything about it. She also considered saying humphry too but didn't want to draw any more attention to herself. So when they got off the elevator on the eighth floor she was no longer feeling so confident confident or excited. She just wanted to go home and sit for a little while on her red cushion. She just needed a little time to feel better to not not feel upset. Okay here we are said her mother and then libby looked up and saw the number eight oh to just like their own number nine zero to the hallway was exactly the same as there's the stone floor or was the same. The color of the door paint was the same apartment eight. Oh one didn't have a zuza or the little prayer marker that the torres family had on their doorway for apartment nine. Oh one and the smells were definitely different. No laundry smell or spicy garlic smell. All or stinky dogs smells instead. She smelled something cheesy and.

The libby chronicle ran for seven weeks before boundary and the of chaplains were paroled in october eighteen sixty three bodry took this evolving editions with him when he left and it remained the most accurate snapshot of life at libby prison that still survives today among among the information. The cornucopia contained was advice or counselling around common problems in libby. One of the most useful pieces of advice was was on ways to hide money from the confederates between the soles of shoes enfolds. If governments or in the hollow of the buttons on the uniforms the button could be prized up at the rim and the top peeled back and myspace was big enough to store a greenback torn into before the cap was replaced aw union prisoners did well to hate the advice. The union greenback was highly sought-after among confederates since they uh on confederate dolla was steadily losing ground against the greenback by may eighteen sixty three the ratio was ten confederate dulles is to one greenback by the end of eighteen sixty three the ratio had blown out to twenty two one. It was worth wall smuggling in union currency since prisoners could use it on the black market operated by the gods prisoners pooled their cash and used it to boy oy extra food green vegetables in particular although it was illegal to exchange the confederate gray bags for yankee greenbacks. Even the confederate confederate government preferred the enemies currency when they could get it used it to pipe blockade runs those ships fast enough to outrun you get navy ships and reach europe to buy badly-needed goods. Although live for prisoners was monotonous and hunger and boredom competed waited for the inmates mind misery the men could at least look forward to being paroled and exchanged at some point in the future but this all changed when when the union government officially suspended all prisoner exchanges in july eighteen sixty three six months earlier lincoln had delivered the emancipation proclamation which declared that all persons held a slice in the rebelling states <hes> and henceforth shall be free confederate president jefferson davis denounced the proclamation as the most execrable measure recorded in the history of guilty man and an attempt to interfere with our social system. The union army began actively recruiting black citizens many eager to fought for the emancipation -ation 'cause the confederates responded by declaring that black soldiers captured would be enslaved rather than exchanged and what command black soldiers who were captured would be court martialed and executed in the field union officials and citizens in the north were polled declaring that this was a violation of the cartel exchange program and the labor code which stated the lore of nations knows no distinction of kala and if an enemy of the united states should slave and sell any captured persons of the army it would be a case for this veress retaliation if not redressed upon complaint lincoln cancelled a planned exchange of offices sheduled from may twenty fifth eighteen sixty three and prisoner exchanges inches were formerly suspended two months lighter besides the crossover black prisoners of war the fragile cocktail arrangement had been endanger jeff <hes> some taunt the confederates had previously imprisoned surgeons and chaplains who were meant to be exempt and had also been accused of for lighting the parole agreement on july for general ulysses s grant had granted thirty thousand confederate p._o._w.'s parole on on the condition that i did not fight again until the exchange had been formalized instead. Many of these former prisoners were immediately returned into active duty for the confederates. The cartel systems collapsed was a severe blood. The south's free population relation of five point five million versus. The knowles twenty two million main confederates needed. They captured saw his back more urgently than the union nate. There's the south had also had a string of setbacks that tiled morale most notably.

Captives do in prison throughout the south. They will also fight or consequences in may two could have expected to be paroled sued now had no hype of exchange instead passing the dies audley while more and more captured soldiers arrive at southern prison camps but december eighteen sixty three more than thirteen thousand union soldiers were imprisoned in richmond with twelve hundred of those crammed into libby prison. The already poultry rations were reduced. Even further each day they had received a quarter pound a hundred fourteen grams of faith a half pound of bread and a half cup of russell baynes but as simba this had been reduced to answers of faith h month along with non answers of corn bread and a cup of water dighly the health of the inmates quickly deteriorated scurvy began to city and while dysentery in new monja spread through libby and other prisons like wildfire old file although the inmates pooled their funds to buy vegetables at the richmond market they've funds had been steadily dwindling and now almost gone the other reprieve was the crite sent from the north by friends relatives over u._s.

The official official reason given was that the confederacy had been incensed by the union government's practice of addressing the boxes to l. starving soldiers in richmond. Oh ooh upright defenders in libby prison. Although it no dad annoyed the confederates the north soared as a poor excuse for an uncivilised uncivilised and childish action prisoners now relied solely on pooling funds to buy supplementary food from the richmond market but a few days later commandant turn put a stop to this to forbidding staff to buy food for the inmates and already dos situation became across as prisoners search for any scrap of lift either food whatever it state every half rotten mm potato cabbage every style crust of bread was quickly conceived porvenir skeletal inmates for many of the prisoners the efforts to remain alive was oh they could muster some just bailey but for a few of us they were constantly searching for weaknesses within libby the prison they were looking for any possible way of breaking out and making it back to the union lawns. One of those men was colonel. Thomas ellwood rise thomas rose had been a schoolteacher in pittsburgh before the war he had enlisted it s private before being promoted to captain and given command of two companies of the seventy seventh pennsylvania while fighting. It's dunn's river tennessee rose. Let pivotal counter attack after colonel pay to housing was wounded. General william rosecrans was impressed. I enough to promote rose to colonel on september tenth eighteen sixty three rows had led the seventy seventh pennsylvania i nia through the burning woods at chicken moga and into enemy fire to texas regiments busted the union lines flight to seventy seven tenths and captured. All of the regiment's viewed offices along with seventy men dies lighter. The captives were corralled into cattle cars and sent to richmond and on october. First rose found himself on the crowded sick and flow of the libby prison cuddled rose immediately began examining he surroundings in libby he peed closely at the window casings and fireplaces and committed committed to memory the streets buildings and anything of note around the prison. He was careful not to offer himself as a target at the window to the trigger. Happy god's instead peering carefully from the saud's something that caught he's. I almost immediately was how closed the kenilworth canal canal was to the south side of the prison. After watching workmen climbing in and out of a lodge sewer on canal street rose figo's the the sewer must have emptied into the knee by ken awas canal. He made his wife from the first floor down the stairway that led into the aced cellar room. The ace ella had been set up as a second kitchen for prisoners to us after a recent influx of captured soldiers although although it was avoided wherever possible since it was agreement gloomy filthy rat infested plice but for rose it had a particular appeal. He'll be a silla nicknamed rat. Hell was the closest pointing the prison to the sewer as rise move slowly around around the dimly lit room surveying h section he suddenly bumped into another body. Moving silently in the shadows rose jumped back back startled. He hadn't been in libya long and had not yet learned who among his fellow captives could be trusted. The man he he bumped into was my g g hamilton and he was just as wary and suspicious bumping into rose. The two of them struck up a conversation shen attempting to get the other ones measure major hamilton had been a home build a before the war and had enlisted in the twelfth kentucky cavalry after a clash with confederate cavalry in the appellation mountains near jonesboro tennessee hamilton had been captured in light september tamba and sent to libby it didn't take long for hamilton rose to realize they shared a common purpose funding away to break out of lebed. The pera grade that an escape out of the prisons doors windows was practically suicide. They agreed that best chance was to tunnel to freedom the two men mapped out the a cellar room in one corner set the lodge cauldrons resting being in crude furnace against the wall as they survey day surroundings they gagged on ethic with the stench of rotten food and sewage you as bad as the smell was however there was something worse. The sale is at lea- not cold rat health and nothing under the fate swarmed a plague of river rats almost completely indifferent to the men's presence the squealing rats swarm davide a fate rosen. Hamilton did their best to block out the hard conditions and continued mapping the room. They found a possible all stopping point for the tunnel on a section of the ace wall a recess behind building support with tightly compacted soil that was less loughry to cave in on them as has they duck satisfied that this was the place to begin the two men returned to the rooms upstairs while they watched the confederate unfetter at god's come and go for a few days to ensure they digging wouldn't be disturbed. They procured crude excavation tools to case ause and a broken shovel when they were satisfied. It was unlikely that they would be discovered so long as they were careful. The two men began digging. They plan to dig a tunnel until they reached the wolves of the sewer breakthrough then follow the sewage to freedom but the plan was thrown into into disarray when the confederate suddenly transferred dozens of offices out of libya attempting to reduce the overcrowding with the second makeshift like shift kitchen area in the cella now superfluous to requirements the cauldrons were removed and the stairway to a seller was sealed having having barely begun rose hamilton's escape plan was over at least for now a few weeks pastas rosen hamilton continued. We need to take in their surroundings is peeled for any possible weaknesses that could be exploited but they agreed that the seller was the best hype of skype. The silla was sealed leaving the west and middle sale is the west ciller was ruled out since it was where the black prisoners lived and was closely guarded at an exterior door that laid onto the exposed riverside of the prison the middle sale. How's the carpentry shop shop along with giles sales hostages who prisoners requiring further punishment directly above the middle sela was the main floor kitchen one not rise carefully prod up a flew aboard in the kitchen you the wooden which he had whittled pawn he then loa loyd along board removed from tumble seat into the carpentry shop below before resting at against the opening he'd made in the kitchen floor roy. I sleep dan the board and into the middle sela as he's is at justice to the darkness rose look to the left and right and my two observations device i the jail sales were empty second. He could see a doorway that led out onto canal street without door. He sleeps silently against the wall until he reached the doorway. Then carefully peered out a guard on duty u._t. Pace passed and was so close that rose could have reached out and touched him as the god moved away from the door roy's looked out at the landscape nudging the buildings and god post nearby. He returned to the board and she'd back up into the kitchen. Then replaced the flow abode and turned to hamilton to whisper what he had seen the next not the two men return to the kitchen and prized up the board then using a rope tied to a supporting post. Hey in hamilton slid down and into the cella. The rope has been given to them by colonel harry. Sorry what he used it to tie byles clothing. The two men crashed silently in the darkness to watch the gods movements counting the steps use and the time it took for h god to make his rounds after a week. The two were confident they could tom run out through the doorway. Then thin flip between shadows with that pink sane until they were clear the prison they decided to roll the dos and rose made a dash out the doorway oy staying as low as possible but before he got far the second god's spotted him and shouted to raise the alarm rose dash back through the doorway into the silla and op the ripe with hamilton in talk thanks to darkness the pay managed to make it up the road and replaced the board with that being seen when god's search the middle silla they work several civilian libraries who've been asleep on bedrose in the corner after a day's work in the carpentry shop. Luckily the gods concluded they figured that sane was just a library rather than an invite tonight and would be escapee buoyed by how close come rosen hamilton enlisted a handful of prisoners who could either pow the gods what if need be after spending several not showing the new recruit the middle civil layout the group gathered and dropped down the ripe into the assila for a breakout attempt almost as soon as they will always in the cella ready for the attendant a prisoner lookout upstairs sound at the allom aw that gods were converging on. Maybe the prisoners scurried back up the ripe into the kitchen with rose the loss one up to replace the flow boat put a second lighter god's flooded into the kitchen gave the group a cursory glance then dashed up the stairs and into the living quarters i surprise inspection after funding nothing i left but rise in hamilton new hip clutch cool there was another problem. The prison was now buzzing with rumors of an impending skype and starving prisoners begged rose and hamilton to include them. The two planets might willing participants swear an oath of secrecy but after four hundred twenty prisoners came forward to make the pledge hamilton in in russia's worry that such a large number of prisoners would mean a lodge response force of armed militia descending lee in the event of a breakout many prisoners would be wounded or killed the pair announced that they were abandoning the plan and within a few weeks the room is dot away the recent close kohl's might the middle sela too dangerous to us as a starting point and so the cella became the most attractive option once again but the first problem was had i could get into the now sealed room and do so without being noticed above above the a seller was the prison hospital an impossible access point since any attempt to prize up flow boats would be seen by nurses doctors patients nations or gods above the middle silla. The kitchen was a better option since they had used previously to gain entry into the middle silla but dropping down to the sela i making an access hall through the brick wall to the a._c._l._u. was also impossible workman using the carpentry shop in the middle silla would eventually notice a hall cut through the brick and the gods would be sent to investigate but they was another possibility that kitchens fireplace behind the fireplace was a foul that separated the kitchen and hospital in the adjacent route hamilton figured it was possible to make a small excavation in the fall will being careful not to excavate too deep and breached the wool into the hospital.
