"I tempt you with a lollypop? They're very good. I think that there's potentially something you know could have happened, But we intentionally did not go down that road. You know, I think we do with him, said it. I think really out of respect more than anything else for the royal family. I think it was the right choice. I don't think it's necessarily that important to the story. I think the most important is that They were just incredibly fond of each other. They would definitely connected emotionally, and they spent a great deal of time together for you as an actor. I mean, your career has been defined by these rules that are kind of quirky and eccentric and strange, and now you're playing this towering figure from American history and this very realistic historical drama. How did you approach it? I mean, was it a challenge for you? It was a challenge and very exciting. Early on. When I read the script, I love the point of view that our director spoke to me about which was really concentrating on the details and really focusing on the family and how the war impacted the family. Not and so I speak of family, not only the royal family but also the family of nations, the family of the world and I just thought it was a really nice take on things. Um and I approached it with a great deal of respect. And you know some trepidation. Of course, I did a lot of research, which turned out to be really fun. And then the physicality was a big challenge as well. And I was very interested in in that and recreating that and getting that accurate in real life. FDR worked so hard to avoid the public seeing him in his wheelchair. On this show portrays in great detail his leg braces, people assisting him to stand up the physical pain. He feels. Why was that important to you to depict? Why do you think that was important for this show? I think, understanding what he had to deal with on a day to day basis, And yet he was how he was able to maintain his sense of humor and his focus. I think in some ways it helped him to focus because he was never out of pain. You just had a great stamina on a zest for life. You're FDR often seems trapped. He's caught in a global conflict that he would rather the U. S. Not be a part of our At least he's under pressure not to get the U. S involved in it. He's expected to run for re election when he says he would prefer not to This. FDR is not just a leader. He's someone who's dragged along by forces beyond his control. Yeah. So it's not the word self that holds you back. It's your sense of duty. I truly don't want to smoke them eight years more than enough. Did it change your view of the U. S presidency.

What is a Standard?

"Is a standard. You may have heard that term wondered what the heck is that. Do i buy a plant standard. Is that rosa standard. Is that hydrologist standard. What does this mean. This was on my mind recently ellen because somebody sent me a picture of their vegetable garden and at all four corners of their vegetable garden. They grow a cannabis plant as a standard. I have never seen that. Send you the picture. Because is first of all gorgeous. Second of all huge trunk things but we do. They live someplace where it's warm enough. That they don't have the cannabis doesn't have to come in in the window. No annual they do it as an annual you know they get stat big. Sorry i shouldn't have said that that distracted us so that all right. That's all right. So let's let's talk about what a standard is a standard basically is growing something so that it looks like a small tree. That's how i would define you prune up the limbs at the bottom of the plant as the plant grows and it may look like a lollipop. I've seen land tana's stole sold as standards and they look like know flowery lollipops on top of a trunk. You could find a rosemary. Standard as an herb. For growing indoors. It'd be much smaller. But again it still has that bare trunk at the bottom and it might be round at the top or it could be pruned into a square or diamond shape. It's actually it's a simple kind of topiary if you think about it yes it is and it's making a plant look like a small tree as you say with that bare trunk and then the top has the foliage and flowers. If it's a blooming plant many people grow tropical hibiscus as a standard in a pot on deck during the summertime and other tropical plants as well are commonly raised by at the grower as a standard and sold for container plants. Yeah and you see roses as standards. I think more often the smaller flowered roses not the giant ones and when i was growing up in new england. Lots of people grew hydrangea as standards but out in their yards not in containers and they would call them. Hydrangea trees which of course now. I want to say it's not a tree no matter how you grow it but but that was a really popular thing in new england when i was growing up. I don't know if it's still is. Oh it definitely still is now in the old days. They made those standard hydrangea by pruning ruining the lower limbs and leading one trunk Grow up now they grow the trunks. They graft whatever variety of the hype train peninsula onto the top of the trunk and so often. Now they are grafted. And you can find straight hydrangea peninsulas. As a tree form that's basically how they're referred to now at the garden center is a tree form and you can find lime lights. You can find firelight standards. Any number of varieties of the hydrangea peninsula can be purchased in that three four if people are wondering what a standard is now you

"Is it. It isn't you know so so it really made me am sure enough annoyingly. Evangelical on this issue and listeners have heard me talk about it but there's something like that in your personal life that came up for you you know would would. Would i really appreciate it. And i saw this on. The local level was just a small acts of kindness. That people doing that The people in my circle. Who were you know who had more were doing okay. You went out of their way to help others whether it was deliveries for people who just couldn't leave whether they were whether they had an immuno deficiency or. They were elderly. Just going okay. I'll i'll do deliver. I go to the supermarket. I'll pick stuff up for you. Drop it off that type of thing delivering supplies to people getting involved with local food banks And to me there is it was also nice to see goodness and action and and not just a performative way in an actual real tangible way. And i think this is sort of what you were saying to with you know spending money where your heart is. You know the i always come back to the beatles. The the love you take is equal to the love. And it's it's you. You get what you put in and everything that i've ever been involved with. I found that to be true. You're you're if you put good things into your life if you put if you invest time and energy into bettering your community you get a better community When you when you spend time in investing in safety and and and kindness you get safety and kindness and so being able to see that in action has has may that's a little Loftier or high minded or pompous but witnessing that gave me some perspective and you know some days are really hard to get three app and on those days that it's hard to get there. I was just reminded myself of that that that you know. Whatever you're going through someone else might be going through something rougher and if you can help someone if you can do something good and and and do something. Positive that day you. That's that's the reward. The positive thing is the reward. I okay let's just say something like dump about them. More like how we spend our time or I you know I i let me let me try and think. Because i don't actually have one ready to go i can. I can live off of turkey sandwich. i've learned. I could eat a turkey sandwich for lunch every day till the end of time. Apparently i learned that like it's weird. I got to that point where i was like dreaming about. This is so ridiculous dreaming about like various regional. airports. I would have been traveling to to do comedy show. Little mental in daydreams just like oh but like what about the charlottesville regional airport in virginia. Like just like oh. It's i i would have gotten like a cinnabon. Maybe and i would've told myself no. You shouldn't get that sinn above them. I would have gotten that anyway. Like i these these things that were did are so dumb about previous life are actually think so funny. We say so. Because because i troubles me so much so i have like lounge access and the an elite merit in whatever loyalty andrew club for the hotels and i love love hotel and airport. Love going to those fucking places. I like getting all take a beer. Absolutely oh a buffet. Don't mind if i do. I think The other thing that. I realized that i missed. Is that so stupid is the is the commute like i love going on the subway. And there's a. There's a few reasons why. I love going subway. One is you get like you know you gotta go from the israel lynch to midtown takes about fifteen minutes in those fifteen minutes. You don't have to do anything else. Those fifteen minutes are like those are yours. You can just stare at people like observe what they're reading what they're doing what they're wearing a mineta like i got some great ideas just by being around. My fellow new yorkers on the subway The there your time. It's your time. And i feel like the absence of like that time of just mindless going from one place to another needs. A brain reset. I didn't know they needed it. I need that. When i would catch up on my friends. Podcast that i swore go. Yeah is it name is it named sh- make mation that's always but there's a million between. There's so many podcasts. And now everyone's doing podcasts. And i don't know when they have because they yes the commute. I'm always on a podcast. Yes oh i love it i. I think it's funny. That i learned these little things about myself and that they're the little things that have sort of made me tick without me realizing it right like going to the sheboygan regional airport made me tick and And the absence of that going on the subway like being on a on a subway platform like walking into random lobbies of buildings all of those things sort of gave me mental and physical stimulation and without them. I have become wouldn't be. I also and i hate that. I'm saying this. But i miss comedy shows for one specific reason. I would run into people that i hadn't thought of or thought to reach out to and then i would see them. I'd be so happy that i saw them. You know and i'm just like oh you're what are you doing in town. Or how do we end up on the same circuit or or you're on this show just that that moment of surprise when someone you know in like in heaven forever ends up on the show with you and you're just a great batting missed that little man. Yeah i really really miss that. We know and then they remind you that you're like i haven't talked to you because you're fucking four. I'm find that out remember. I remember hearing a thing on freakonomics about gossip apparently gossip even if it's is viewed as a bad negative thing or whatever but it actually makes us feel better when we're in the process of gossiping. Because i think it kind of reinforces your connection to community. I don't actually remember. Look this episode of freakonomics a great. But there's something about gossip that he isn't actually in negative that like for you to run for for me and you to run into each other and then talk should have gone another iconic wage. I'm not saying ever happened would never happen. Never let that definitely definitely. But there's something about that that reinforces community. Reinforce you know. And i think that is something that we all miss. Because we're all not running into the people that we normally would have run into. We'll look and we're social. Beings are meant to be elated for did for an extended period of time in such dire circumstances. I will say Combat deployments have prepared me very well for a lockdowns in a pandemic I am very. I'm apparently very adaptable. When it comes to just stay. And getting my essentials and knowing what i knew what i need to sustain and what's a you know when when to go out to get more like when the mission when its mission essential mission readiness and all that sort of stuff so i guess that's one good thing that combat prepared me for a pen..

"He's like look. This is only going to get done if we do it. This way. i've been around the block. I know these people. I know how to deal with them. I know what we're up against. And if we want to get from aid to be worried because mitch mcconnell one of the things that he said about joe biden. I think it is bull or in an interview or something. He said that. Like joe like obama wanted to have conversations about the issues but biden was never never tried to change his mind like they're not going to be like listen. You should support taxing the wealthy because of the following moral reason like i know i'm not going to change your mind. Let's talk about what we're or you can get to like. And that's thing get to politicking. That's what we want. I think even though it's not it's it's it's i mean i think of myself as a practical progressive appea- and a urination and i I think of myself as someone who understands that that has to happen. Behind closed doors to be conversations with mitch mcconnell that are just like really fucking technical. Yeah and it's going to be like this. Hey mitch i know you hate poor people. Try and change your mind. But here's what are you were. But here's what i want. So what do you want so that i can help exit so we so. Let's move on from that. Should be actual pandemic funny. Because i don't even wanna talk about. But like i do It's so so this pandemic happens. What is what is the first sort of thing you gleaned about the american public when it comes to something of a tragedy of this major ongoing crisis of this nature you know. The first thing that really struck me was how every zombie movie. And every post apocalyptic. Movie that i had ever seen was so fucking wrong about how much The stores would still be stocktake post apocalypse. Everyone bought toilet paper immediately. Like they just went to their worst hoarding nature. Of just like well. I don't want like. I'd better have all the toilet paper. Two guys had five ma. All those stories is the beginning about the dudes. You bought up all of the hand sanitizer. We're trying to come on. Yeah i mean come on man you know so. The thing that struck me was the initial response was just abject selfishness but in response to that it it really forced everyone else in the community to come together and really treat each other as and as family and friends and take care of each other and you saw the communities. What you really saw across. America was what each community prioritized right and so there were communities that prioritize safety and responsibility and personal responsibility to help the community and then there were communities. Who are like. That's not important to me. My freedom to go out and cough on people is more important than your right to live and you know what we really saw was the we could see. In real time the difference we could see in real time how that affected not just from a health standpoint but from a psychological standpoint and one thing that that made me optimistic was the worst things got the the more people were sort of forced into taking care of one another. And it's a terrible way to do it but it was. It is still nice to see people taking care of other apple and to put the put other people first and to really treat each other like we're all in this together and so you know that's my couple of like rosie. You know moments that really brought down. Some length to symbolically was the seven pm. Cheer i don't know how many other places did it but in new city and seven pm cheer was very serious and happens every night at seven pm through the for a couple of months in those early days where things were so acute and we all lead out of our windows. We went onto our balconies. We went onto our rooftops and we cheered cheered and it was just this this recognition of healthcare workers and essential workers who were continuing to make society run wild. We stayed at home to do our part and it was I just lived for it seven pm. I was out there. i just loved wave. Two neighbors across the street did wave to the neighbors above me. You know we had. We had chats between buildings. And i think that's the thing where you're like. We are all in this together. Now let me tell you a little something that i learned about myself canary In the process of this pandemic. I learned that. What am i rolls. As a citizen is as a citizen is to eat at restaurants. That's what i learned about myself. I'm not look i'm not. Only two dollars coder in restaurants. Guys that is my job is to bite is dubai. Takeout is to eat out at restaurants in to enjoy ambience. That's one of my jobs. I take it very seriously. And i am doubling down on that job. I think i'm really well suited. I feel like. I've excelled and so you know when everyone was making bread i was like no thank you. I can still to you know. Obviously i'm lucky enough to be able to to buy some of these meals outside but The the to me. I was just like we need to support this critical Around the country. I mean a new york has like ninety five percent of the restaurants in america so many you know and And so and also i just again. I mean people heard. We talked about shopping local stuff like that. Good i i feel like i have always viewed a local business as as a backbone of the community and as people that see human being and then the end the pandemic and the measures that small businesses had to take to make the create protocols in their stores and whatnot. I mean these are just people like you and me who were trying to figure out how to keep a business opening. Keep food on the plates of their children During a pandemic and it just it really brought it home for me that you need to spend your money where where your heart is. Know and is your heart.

"Yeah in the other thing that This feel like a lot of the stories coming out about Purdue and leffler. And i get in there as very wealthy democrats Absolutely nancy pelosi is very wealthy. Democrat for example Joe biden is a very wealthy democrat. and so. I think one thing that's really coming out about. All of this is that we really like for example. The one of the latest scandals of this week is that leffler has a mansion that was evaluated went to the she bought for ten million dollars. She did hunt several hundred thousand dollars of improvements to the mansion. Because you're not gonna just sit around with the crown molding you got to change it. You know what. I mean And she did several hundred thousand dollars proven she got a reassessment on her property and it's and the valuation came down six million dollars which means that her tax liability has been reduced so she is really interested in You know is cutting taxes for herself primarily But you know. At least she knows how to do that. And that's the kind of thing where i'm like okay. I think when we're dealing with people of such considerable wealth especially in the senate. I do think that all of this money should be in a blind. Trust if you're gonna be in the set let's just not have to be a fucking issue senators to that on the seapower subcommittee for the navy and he and that he and he can do it right even even if he wasn't doing insider trading but there might be the appearance of it. Let's not have an issue look. They shouldn't be allowed to own and trade stocks. I mean that should be a trade off. If you wanna go into public service and be someone who's powerful as a senator who's going to be making decisions about how the laws that you create affect the community reportedly represent then. You shouldn't be able to make money off of that. You shouldn't be able to vote on policy and look we're not gonna. They're not going to recuse themselves from from these things and it's technically legal so you shouldn't dacha with a trade off you have to give up. You have to give up something you know. If you wanna go into this you already have a powerful position. You should also be allowed to legally enrich your cells and you and you should be accountable to people because look. There's a lot of people get hurt by this. And they don't they don't care it doesn't affect them it doesn't it doesn't it. Doesn't make them angry enough to vote them out of power when people vote on tax bills right and i think i just want to point out that You mentioned that. Her husband is the ceo of the company that is in your soccer stage. That's really that's a tough one. And also that purdue for his part didn't show up to the most recent debate that he was supposed to have with jon ossoff so done ossoff disorder like was alan stage with an empty podium. I am stunned by that. He also missed a bunch of the pandemic votes votes about pandemic recovery bills He's not doing himself any favors. It just doesn't seem like he cares very deeply. I think it's a very weird not to show up to a debate especially a debate. That's this high profile of debate. that's in high profile. A that's so high profile. I mean this is. This is really incredible. Okay so so binary. Let's just. I wanna close this off though by talking a little bit about ossoff and warnock themselves. I didn't realize this ossoff intern for the beloved georgia representative. John lewis. yes and he. He spoke so eloquently about this. Actually that john. Lewis would be looking down upon the that off and reverend walker running in tandem because john lewis spoke so so beautifully about the connection between the jewish and the black community especially in georgia bates and so i mean it was just this amazing you know if if we can if georgians can get them elected to the senate. It would be such a testament to the legacy of john race. Yeah exactly and he was also a staffer. An aide for representative hank johnson for five years and then he went on and got a master's degree at the london school of economics and tease it. Media guy So you know. He's he's this is in his first rodeo so to speak in public service. I wanna and i want you also mention about a rough warnock something weird which is that like. I is also. He's a pastor. He's the senior pastor at the conic. Ebeneezer baptist church where martin luther king junior And where also. John lewis was a prisoner so they both have this john lewis connection and i interestingly tried to like just find out more about you know more stuff about him and every time. So i'm just googling right. I'm just doing your regular casual googles and every time. I googled everything that came about him. Was kelly leffler calling him. A radical socialist radical socialist which in their in their debate. That happened last week. Was her common refrain which is to continually call him radical socialist radical socialist rafael warnock radical socialist. Rafael warnock. what you know. What do you think of warnock and And leffler main talking point about him. Well i think that there's that the republicans right now are sticking to a strategy of just continue calling them socialists. Because whatever pulling they show seems to work but it's also all they've got left she has no record to speak of that helps georgians. She has no. She was never actually elected to her position as a senator. So she's an unelected multi mega billionaire whose husband literally owns the stock market. She has nothing else to run on to. And meanwhile reverend warnock has of the community he serves the community already. This is a man who's already dedicated himself to a type of public service and and obviously cares about how his communities doing not how his mansions are doing and how his tax bracket is doing. And i think that in the end It's it's very it's it's disconcerting to see that the races or even this close and also i just want to point out. Yeah the the polls have like pretty dead even raise also the polls are inaccurate and horrible. So who knows although apparently the polls georgia were like a little bit more and close to the actual november results. November third result. So but what we're dealing with is what we're dealing with this tribalism. Basically it's now come down to. Are you team read or you team blue and right now team. Blue has made extraordinary strides in georgia to overcome. What seem like insurmountable. Just a few years ago the last democratic senator to be elected was max cleland and we saw what not just on the national state but with georgia did too to smear his reputation. As a as a wounded combat veteran he was. He was painted as some sort of hippie socialist communist terrorists. I mean not not even an exaggeration. That's that's and that. Was max cleland a vietnam war hero who lost limbs in service to his country. So that's the last sort of statewide a democrat who was elected in georgia and a before. Joe biden was just elected in georgia Bill clinton in ninety nine in the mid nineties was the last democrat to to be elected. So there's been a lot of work that needs to be done. We can't forget that. The governor of georgia still republican that the secretary of state is still a republican that the state itself stealing liens republican the republicans. Still control the mechanisms of voting. So again working knows mechanisms of voltages..

"As a producer and a raider and he's just fantastic comedian. Waves seen delight audiences around the country. And he's other show so many times you already anyone who i'm introducing. Its to neighbor. Nari thank you so much for having me in. What an honor that when you think of disasters horrible fucked balls of years. This is a talk. That's either like do we bring on to talk about fucked ball years all right. Well let's get into it. Breaking ball ball does address. Let's get it with the georgia senate race number one alright. So topic number. One is essentially a raises to segment about races electoral races around the country. Not as about racists to watch which is what everybody thinks. I'm saying when. I say that racist to watch is i sick. We flew yeah racist to watch a spin off. Series the undercurrent of american life. So today. we're gonna talk about that georgia raise. It's a runoff election between Between both senate seats because none of them got fifty percents of the november election So there's a it triggered a runoff for january fifth. The election deadline and and the early voting actually started this week. And apparently there was record turnout for the very first day of early voting. Really exciting and you know this. Is those raise this the senate the senate reasons our tents because they will determine control the set. So let's let's for. The races are between david. Partout in jon ossoff and between kelly leffler and Raphael warnock and. Let's actually start but nari lake. Give us your like your greatest hits with the purdue ossoff race. What do you know about this race. I mean i know that john also has a fantastic candidate has been a fantastic candidate. It's been very tough in georgia. He's made a run of it before. Purdue and leffler are historically terrible candidates revenue. We're not as also. I know less about reverend warnock but he's also fantastic. I've been watching Diamante trail together Have liked you know that. They've been working in tandem But purdue is as much of a piece of shit as you could possibly imagine In terms of insider trading investigations in terms of personal enrichment You know when he's briefed on things for For the senate to help his community he instead lines his pockets and then votes no on on essential care right now. Republicans including and do are standing in the way of stimulus checks to people. I mean this racist literally coming down to if you want a stimulus check vote democrat. If you don't want stimulus check vote republican. That's what it's coming down to right now. So that's actually a really great way of framing it. That should be the campaign slogan to check. It's funny i. I mean i think the purdue news about his questionable stock trades came out a little bit early in the pandemic. So i feel like we've sort of forgotten but let us re re remember on this on this of these holy days leading up to christmas. Purdue made a lot of money off of the pandemic because he was able to invest in companies had prior knowledge he invested in a company called b w technologies that manufactured navy submarines sit navy submarine parts. Right around the time he became head of the senate armed services subcommittee on seapower. So there's a couple of instances not just even pandemic related where he uses his position in the senate to enrich himself. I just wanna point out. He's already very rich. So how much more does he want you know but anyway he's gonna wanna competition. He's got a lot of competition because leffler husband literally owns the stock market will also she is. I miss a fun fact. Leffler is the the wealthiest person in the senate. Which does it mean. She doesn't care although it all kind of does she really needs to work against the wealthiest person the other larry's league. I think one of the things that came out yesterday. And we're we're taping this. On wednesday this week was the the the leffler and purdue races were a you know. Made a big fuss over. Some sort of documentation that they said was not available to them or whatever by By the state department of georgia and the poor guy. What's his name. The one who had to certify the race and all that governor camp and then. Yeah that guy who whatever is being credited for saving democracy ever like he he had come out and said actually You have already access to the information that you're accusing us of not having access to they're trying to again create the smokescreen this you know of the racist being stolen when they actually already have access to that information this brings up such a. I think an important point one. The record number of turnout for years were being told. People don't wanna be actively engaged. Don't want to be civically engaged and for years what we're finding out now. Is that vast swath of the population have been actively forced out of the process or have been prevented from from actively taking part in it and in the pandemic we'd made it as easy as possible for people to vote and lo and behold people are voting when they have the opportunity when they had the chance to make it easy for them to vote know they're voting but secondly the interesting thing is that for years. This has been a system. That's been stacked in favor of one political party especially in georgia. We've seen this with With the governor even though the secretary of state and this sort of narrative of like give information it was available to us. They've had every opportunity. They've had every lever to pull at their disposal and now republicans are struggling and in states like georgia. They're they're struggling in a fair fight and i'm very. I'm always very wary of these groups that have been in power maintained power and are currently in power complaining about not being in power..

"So I mean we have seen a little bit more. I just think they were laying the groundwork for this seemed to be a little bit more tougher to prepare for in terms of matchups. And I think we will see that as a season goes along. All right, let's jump to our pick bet u s.com tells us the line is still seven. What say you Greg I am. I'm going to go with Chiefs and I'm going to go over the point spread. I do think I picked them my ten. I picked them 3020. I do think it's going to be a game for a while. But at some point and who knows it could be another thing where they shut down the Chiefs for like a half but at some point that I've never seen an NFL team like this not even I don't even think the greatest show on Turf Rams were quite as explosive as this in a tight time frame. They're like a basketball team and I asked the question to Jason McCourty today, and he he agreed with it. I said, you know, don't you almost have to go into this game expecting saying okay. They need to make a run in right? You never say that in football. That's a basketball tournament. Great analogy. Yeah. Yeah. I mean at some point like look at the Texans play look at the two playoff games that they had before the Super Bowl like they were shut down for a while and then all of a sudden they went on a run in the game was over at some point. That's the same thing that they has happened with the Patriot. Not this last match up. The last matchup was Mahomes was dealing with his knee. He picked up his hand during the game. So he's a bit limited but the two games before that. I think they gave up something like eighty points in in combined in each of the second half. So he is going to go run off on a run at some point and I just think it's too much in too early for that Patriots defense to really be able to catch up and I I don't think that the Chiefs have some issues table. Sleep but they are nowhere near as bad I see Hawks team. And so I think that was a bit Fool's Gold that game people are going to think I'm ripping you off. So, let's see if this works. Okay. I had this typed up. Let's see if you can watch the video portion of this if you can see that let me see there it is right. That's that's my score that I typed up for this podcast began and it is Kansas City Thirty New England burning. So I'm not ripping off but. It's just great minds think alike. That's right. We do have two great minds here in pretty much, you know, pretty much what you just said. I mean, do think the Patriots might be able to slow them down for a little bit. We've seen that before we saw in the AFC Championship game and then of course, as you said Mahomes was a little gimpy at Gillette last year that might have had an effect but out of all the teams in a league the Patriots have actually done a decent job this offense, but a decent job means you're probably giving up 30 to 35 points because that's how good they are. So I do think it's 30. I think it's 20. I think the birth Which will keep it tight could be a late kind of back door cover deal, but I do think it's 3020 Kansas City and don't forget this you want to make sure that you subscribe to.

Sorry and I don't want to say don't think eighteen because it could be an active again. But but if you did in that guy caught six passes you would look like a damn genius. I know and you know, I don't mind looking like at the end, but I thought I don't have any inside info but I'm just going to say one of the rookie tight ends or both of them. It could be Devin asiasi. I think they might see what he did last week and he got open a few times even though I don't think he was Dynamic at all in the passing game. I was a little bit underwhelmed by that but I would really if there was a game for them and sort of the idea. I think we've talked about it before song the idea with Dalton..

"Who is The X Factor? Yeah, and when I look at when I look at the Chiefs, I always just think offense. So I think Edwards a layer like you can't we saw this last we cried when she saw Josh Jacobs running the football and then for some reason which we discussed in the prior podcast brought to you by Bette u s.com. We talked about the idea of the Raiders just going away from the run for some unknown reason. They just decided Jon Gruden Chucky in all of his wisdom decided to just stop running Jacobs and I have to believe, you know, maybe read and we all know that Andy loved the trickeration every once awhile, he will throw a random trick play into the game plan when it makes zero sense just to do it. He's like a video game guy some like if you're you're playing mad and you just throw it in there every once a while to see what happens and so I think Edwards a layer, you know, he's dangerous if they get the Run game going early that's going to open up some things and it's going to be interesting to see Greg because you mentioned Patriots going to wage There and I think tried to try bait them into running the football. Yep. And if they run the football successfully will Belichick be okay with it and just say Hey, listen, this is going to be them running the football against us running the football not a ton of points on the board and we can live with that and hopefully we get the last possession or is that running game going to cause the Patriots to react defensively before we give you another X-Factor to Greg..

"Do you think we see you love calling the guys the song pop guild. Do you think we see that Lollipop Guild out there on Sunday against this offense? I think we might I think that I think we might be looking at a situation where we've seen in years. Passed against Peyton Manning where there was with the Colts or with the Broncos where the Patriots invited them to run basically in dared them to run because what we all know the Patriots new Thanh may be great in this game. You may be able to run he may be able to pass but this offense is not going to be explosive. I mean, they're going to need help they're going to need turnovers, you know to get into the thirties and they're just not that type of offense right now, but you know, I do think that there's a situation because like I'm very worried about once the Chiefs go, you know, one running back three wide receivers Kelsey. Like, how are they going to match up with Edwards Hilaire and also there are other running backs. I mean that that was a guy in the draft process. The first time I saw him I was like, oh God. I hope the Patriots get him. Kevin Faulk like to point out like he's just he's that good. I think they've Nick I've actually been surprised at how much they've given him to do. I mean first game he was out there carrying the ball all the time. Yeah, he was he was dynamite and week one it was it. Yeah, that's a lot for a rookie and I just wonder if he's going to be able to last with that kind of work log out here you Greg. I have him on fantasy football. So you hopefully you did not just jinx me. Yeah, hopefully not I have so many Michelle, but that's that's that's for another day. But so you should I worry about how they're going to match up and if I'm the Patriots and we've talked about it about how in there two wins the Patriots like their path to victory was basically get an early lead or wage delete at some point get up two scores and now all of a sudden you're forcing the other team. Yep to play on your terms, which is the throw into the secondary the pass rush can pin their ears a little bit back. Like that's how they get, you know more comfortable margin of Victory and I think I think that's sort of where they need to go right off the bat against the Chiefs. I mean if I'm them I'm going three or four defensive lineman. I'm going I don't even know at table..

McDonald's customers changed their behavior during pandemic, but some trends could endure

"Of McDonald's down a little bit today. Despite the fact, same store sales in the second quarter only down two point three percent. That's better than what we have been seeing from a lot of big restaurant companies out there. And Jason similar to the comments that we got from Coca Cola's CEO. Chris Kempinski saying he thinks this quarter represents bottom for McDonald's. Do you think he's right? Yeah. That's a it's an interesting perspective to hear from him, and actually think in McDonald's case could be right. I mean I think. When you look at this quarter when you look at. These? Numbers look pretty darn good. All things considered I. Mean I think that what we're going to see. As as discerning season rolls out, it's it's going to be the expenses that really separate the kids from the grownups here eventually, they're going to be companies that can deal with the with the ramp up in costs due to the pandemic. Way better than others. The McDonald's is one that is going to be able to deal that I think pretty pretty pretty good fashion, I mean it's obviously a huge concept. I mean being franchise means. You've got a lot of partners out there with a lot of expertise in their particular geographies. I don't think you can dismiss that I don't think you can discount that interviews remember not all that long ago. starbucks actually pivoted in their strategy. Going away from company owned stores in foreign markets to back to licensed stores. Because they wanted to rely on that expertise that boots on the ground. Expertise that locals have in McDonald's has that, too, so I mean I think that. This is a company that's going to always benefit from this move towards. Contactless drive-thrus. Always a part of the concept for the most part, and then they've certainly noted that. I think it's very. Interesting to note how dependent they are in some markets, though on their dining room segment, and if you look at their international operated market segment, which is a a large piece of the business pre Kovic, nearly seventy percent of customer orders were in restaurant across those larger markets when they close those dining rooms. Even for a limited time. It makes a big deal. It makes a big. Big Impact on on their financials even though they have the drive through to fall back on, so it's not all sunshine and lollipops, but given the situation. This is a restaurant company that's going to be able to deal a lot better than most well. You talked about the expenses, and that was one of the things Kim Ski was talking about on the call just sort of. In particularly their marketing how they have pulled back on the marketing, spend rightly so, but he was talking about it almost in the same way that Warren Buffet talks about his elephant gun. Like Hey, we've. We've cut back on marketing over the past four months or so. We think as our operations rebound in the second half of this year. We're going to be able to ramp up our marketing to a degree that we have in for a while. I'm assuming at least part of that would be aimed at first because. That was one of the things I was reminded of with. This report is. McDonald's, needs breakfast to be successful. They do you're right and I'm glad you mentioned breakfast because that's that's where I was going to go with this as well. They make Donald's. They don't need to mark it as much as others. Maybe I mean. It's obviously very well known brand already. With large presence at their, in despite the fact that they have recovered a lot of lost sales, like in other words, the the the the fall off in June, for example they've recovered essentially ninety percent of their two thousand nineteen tales from junior. The things are looking a lot better than they were just a few months ago, but that is the one sore point. I think for them. His breakfast in. It's not just. People aren't eating breakfast for dinner or lunch as much anymore. It's this idea that a lot of just aren't commuting anymore and so they're not selling breakfast for breakfast. And that that is a bit of a problem because McDonald's. You know I'm not the biggest. McDonald's in the world, but if if I had to go for for one meal I think it would probably be breakfast, they do it pretty well. And they're just that. That's fallen off a cliff, and that's not gonNA. Come back as quickly even though they had that lever to pull in serving breakfast brilliant essentially as long as they want. But, you know what that's. It I mean I it'll be. It'll be a slow recovery. It's it's. I don't want to say it's going to be a lost year, but it's GonNa, be, there's there's going to be a lot of growth that is lost this year, but but again I think McDonald's a company, and in a very admirable position they will be able to play offense while a lot of other companies were playing defense in that ultimately I think a workout well in their favor.

"That you may be. Okay is time for our final factor. The show and that is Andy. Fact is that according to the people who have drunk it billion year old water tastes. Terrible. Walk. This, this is make any sense. Because, I've got most right here and I've been drinking this water here. I would say is more than a billion years old. Eric in this water is like full in is auto something twelve million years old, and it tastes fine to me all water. Surely surely it's been cleaned. It's been no, so you don't make. What do you like? The Earth doesn't make water. The water that we have now is the same water as was whether dinosaurs were around so I'm receiving early challenges on this fact and go into. I'm so you're absolutely right that the pretty much. All the water on the planet is unbelievably old and may well be much older than a billion years. This is a body, a pocket of water, which was found by a team of Canadian scientists led by Barbara Sherwood La, who is an earth sciences professor? And she and her team found a bit of water about a mile down in Canada. Beneath a mind and this pocket has been isolated from the rest of the world for over a billion years so much pretty much from the planet is part of the water cycle where rebel cycle into the oceans clouds. It'll be good to undergo aquifers this stuff that she found a and her team has been isolated for up to two and a half billion years. It's really really really. It's been kept separate, not been in circulation. And she she was interviewed about it a few years ago and she says she tastes it from time to time, and it always tastes terrible. And she doesn't that her students do it. Because obviously, there isn't a huge amount of stuff to go around, and so so this is a common thing. Apparently right geologists just go around looking and tasting the stock they're investigating designed to find because of how you can get an immediate read if you go to that kind of thing of the kinds of minerals and stuff will the extent of the minerals and she did say that. If you're geologist who works with Brooks, you've looked a lot of rocks. Which is why would the pilot is? She's looking for the oldest Walter in the world. That's what their job is. That's what they're looking for. And the older is the sultan at gets because it means all the bits from the rocks leached and sweat so as you're going, you're kind of little bits of water to get saltier insulted insult and the most salty when you get is probably the oldest. That's why she does that. If that was her job, she did A. Good job of it because the previous record holder was only tens of millions of years old, so she's not one that's older, but by almost two and a half billion years. Pretty going the reason that they realized that this one is so much older than any they found before is they've got a new technique of techie howled. Things are an by using this new technique, which was I think discovered by a University of Manchester in England kind of looked at the isotopes of various gasses which are found in this water and by doing that. I won't explain exactly how you do that because it's pretty obvious for everyone, but basically you work at how many of certain isotopes of these noble gases arena water, and that will tell you when when it kind of London the in your quiver. Yeah, to go back to original complaint about this facts, it is bizarre that water is. There's a lot of water which is older than the sun. Most water is beside billion years old, four and a half billion years old. Is that bizarre? I you don't find it bizarre that the water on the planet is older than the Rock. Find a bizarre, but I know that we have a lot of alien water, so it's. Yeah. That's the thing I'm saying. It's bizarre that there's a lot of alien water which predates the planet forming. I. Think that's. Is, mad! He's right so. Most of the water that we have on earth, we think actually is interesting, because no one really knows where all the ones that comes from, but we think most of it comes from asteroids. Because you can look at the chemical compositions of your water and notice that it's quite similar to what you find in asteroids. Some of that has come from the actual formation of the sun itself so when the Sun Farms all this all these bits come together to make this massive body and space, but some of it becomes. What's called the Solar Nebula. We like a Geisha pots of the sun, which doesn't become the Sun itself and apparently a lot of that stuff has come down to earth and become some of the waters. It didn't. Didn't all come from asteroids, some of it came from the formation of the sun, and apparently for every one hundred molecules of water, one or two who come from the solar, Nebula so Anna's big jug of water that she's drinking from at the moment will have millions and millions of way, the millions of molecules that came from the formation of the sun, but most of it will have probably come from stories. And that could be why water evaporates if you believe in a fringe theory because the. Cool water to evaporate because it wants its water back. To! Suck it back up. I mean wow, yeah, it's just a theory, but why would put itself out? It sounds like. I'm got. There is so much going wrong these last few things that people have said. We should move on to. Backs. Just to go into slightly more kind of human time scales of water. Do you know why water tastes with when you've left it right? Is funky because flies of got there and. Flies flaking not off again. They kind of go in for a little bath in the eighth. Around Changing. You have to sort out your fly situation. No, that's not a it's that carbon dioxide from the air has dissolved in the water, and it's formed carbonic acid. So you basically according to one article I read about it. You're basically drinking very very mild acid rain the next morning, It was really interesting. This is a bit of a personal story, but. I'm in Sussex at the moment, and how visitors come recently from Oxfordshire when it was after the time in your toughest. And the cheer one of them had a bottle of water. They broke marks, and we taste it. And then they tasted the water here and said Oh. Sussex what is so delicious? Isn't it so much nicer? It was like what are you talking about? And we all could tell immediately by just the smell of the water. We the blind tasting, which came from where you can. And tell the difference from certain places like from the difference between Bolton and London is, it might as well be a different liquid. Just just taste nothing like it is both sometimes. It's because of the Rox. This is because of the chemicals that are added in shape. Chemicals with us because we have soft water in Bolton, but have hard water in London. which is just like it might as well be orange juice of lemon juice is completely different. Wonder if there's anyone who can tell every single county by the taste of. Skill in two thousand sixteen. They did a taste test of all the different waters in the UK with a with a group of judges that included Michelin. Star Chef. Tom Atkins. Okay, so these experts are water. I tasted the ball and they said that the best tasting water was the West Midlands. It was found in the West Midlands on. The worst was served by Wessex water, which included bath and Bristol. That was because the water was polluted by statue of a slave trader. Apparently College about. These kind of few every couple of years they come up with a new survey in someone.

We're the person who made it for. The whole dynasty was genghis right and he's. He's started off really publicly stricken, so he started off being a hunter gatherer, because he was basically exiled, but he was born. This is weird thing. He was born with a lot of blood in his hand, apparently, which meant that you were going to be a great ruler, I mean. Mean obviously wasn't if we don't believe in the mythology of these times, but if you're a Mungo, Clo- blood in his hand, and was sign, it was going to be ruthless, and he was once he massacred as what is massacring entire Sissy. He's got all the pets all the cats and dogs and cows and camels in the city as well or no for person. He was, he was a bad guy, but he really likes loyalty. He was a good guy to his mate. He was one of those. If you're friends with him, he's really good to you. He was in. He was in one bustle, and someone almost killed him, shooting his horse out from underneath him, and he stood of stopped, the battle took, took them prisoner, and was like who wasn't. He Will Miss Short that horse out from under me, and the guy put his hand up. Some reason and Ganga's set. Okay you that was a great show. Come on my side, and this guy ended up being one of his most important generals helped him conquer the world. you just to go on his good side when he went through. The Middle East trying to see all these cities, the reason that they were so good as they had these massive catapults, and the catapults were amazing. They would fire the stones at the city walls, and then eventually they would have to give up. And they were so important that if you know how they killed all the dogs and cats and stuff like that well, they wouldn't kill the engineers of the city. They give them a chance to kind of come over to the Mongols site, because they knew how impulsively engineers were, and if they agreed that, they would come over, and they become part of the Mongol, army and there was one city. In China somewhere I remember what it's called and they heard about this that this was happening in the heard, the Mongols will come in, and they decided to get rid of all the stones from the area, so a couple of days they literally within a Mile Circle. They grabbed every single stone. They could find a broader ends of the city. But then what the Mongols did instead was, they got some Mowbray's trees chopped down. Put them in water, left them out to dry, and they became rock-hard, and they could use those instead of stones to fire ever sits only. Say some argument that they were good enough, and in the end they had to bring in some stones from somewhere else because they had like a like a postal service for stones. Get like storage of stones like. Storage site of parcels, but they would keep stones in all these different places and really yeah, they would be like one days right away, and they bring the stones to each place, so there's an argument they might have done that or it might have been these trees. So. Expensive! If you'll shipping stones internationally is hard enough to ship. Book Imagine One hundred. And you're asking for next day delivery and a lot of these. Could catapulted to the area. You want to get. Such a good idea. This is full. Scuttle I. Don't think they even thought of that. Judge. They used also trees to their horses if they didn't need the trees to be replacement rooks. These clever tactics, scattering the enemy, and one of them was tying trees to the horses that didn't have riders, so it sounded like they had much. Is the holes dragging along a tree. Okay sorry, tiny trees to the horses makes it sound like you're.

Lightfoot: Not Ready To Open Restaurants In Chicago

"The server Lori Lightfoot she had a press conference in Chicago earlier today and she was asked about the the fact that the city is not going to allow bars and restaurants restaurants specifically to open I'm may twenty ninth yesterday the governor gave us a little lollipop at his press conference and said Hey you know that we can open up for outdoor seating only in the beginning on may twenty ninth good restaurants back to work but the mayor said whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa not so fast I don't know why that would be so why they would have that expectation may twenty ninth is the expiration date of the state stay home as everyone surely knows the city of Chicago has its own responsibilities and obligations to crafts policies public health policies that are specific to the city Chicago and we are hard at work on looking at ways in which we can get our restaurant industry back up right and she says that this is very different the suburbs have a different situation the city cities got the largest concentration of Kobe cases in the state when I find myself in the circumstance of calling the survivors the people who died I don't want their deaths to be in vain because we are we are so fixated on a moment a pleasure that can impact our city for a lifetime and and yeah I I will say the same thing that I told my twelve year old I don't care what other people do you're my kid I am the mayor of the city I have a responsibility and obligation to speak the truth even when people don't want to hear it even when it's hard because that's what's the right thing to do the governor said that he has no objection to the mare holding back and opening up the restaurants well the decision by a municipality like Chicago to not have outdoor seating is completely up to them as I've said all along we've tried to provide a baseline to protect people in various communities in different cities and counties they can do something that's more stringent and decide not to allow certain activities because maybe they're a hot spot maybe they're concerned about something in particular that they want to deal with on a local

Better Communication Through Letters

"Debbie Ronca is President of Sequoia coaching a Certified Life Coach. Speaker and disc profile trainer with John Maxwell team she is also the author of the family letter how to intentionally develop a culture of honor encouragement and value with your loved ones a bestseller in nine relationship in Harrington Categories Ronco wants start a global movement. So other families also benefit on the family wetter. We're going to talk about this today with Debbie. Debbie welcome to the show. Thank you so much for coming on. You are locked them. And thank you for having me of course so debbie for a lot of our listeners. That might not know what a family letter is. Could you go ahead and tell them what the impact of a family letter is and really what they could get out of it? That's a great question. Read on the family letter was basically something that we started as a tradition in our family years ago when our kids were growing up we had the intention of teaching them how to use their words To be encouraged others to be able to use the words to bless another person. And you know. Sometimes it's really hard for kids especially to verbalize. They feel a little embarrassed or uncomfortable. So we've found that using a letter was the safe way to go. That's great So I myself actually have done something like a family letter before in my family. It's not quite what you do But it really helped teach me how to express myself to my family in a healthy way and really be able to communicate and open wider doors. Is that the same hope that you are looking for with your letter. Absolutely the whole intent really is to let the other person know why their loved valued in celebrated and when you hear that from other family members it really just builds wonderful foundation of trust and connection and a bond and read what we did specifically is. We made it a tradition on our birthdays. We thought why not birthdays the day. Everyone is celebrated right so why not let that be the day that we received this letter and so we taught our children from the time they were young and of course we made the what the intent that had to be in the letter? Simple so they could do it and you know when I speak at women's events I always tell the moms don't worry about the grammar. Don't worry about the punctuation year teaching them how you used the words and you don't ever want to make them feel it has to be perfect because it's coming from their heart and of course as our family grew and I say read. We've been doing this now for over thirty years and after thirty years our children thirty eight thirty seven and thirty five. They still want their letters. I mean it is a big tradition in our house. Love that I love that. That's fantastic. Could you dive a little deeper into the content of these family letters absolutely well like in the beginning we make it really simple for the kids because we want them to right so it really? You need to not just tell the person you love them but why because when you specifically say why it goes deeper you know. It's just not the Cliche I love you but when you hear why and then you want to celebrate their gifts and talents you wanNA recognize Any celebrations in their life and of course as we got older we expanded that. So Ah Chris. Reflecting on the past year of this person's life were on their birthday. And you know everybody walks through a dark time trial a difficulty and we write about that in the letter like Geez. Jonathan I remember when you were going through that difficult relationship and the way that you handle bit really made us proud of you. You showed a lot of kindness and compassion and so we actually recognize encourage. The person helping walk through difficult times as well. That's really nice to hear. I think a struggle that a lot of families go through not just with something like this but milestones for any of their children is. When do we start you know? When do we put him on a bike? When do we teach them how to do this? When would you say is a good time to get your children to start being engaged in this? When we started the letter read. Our children were five and seven while and then we had an remind you that the letters were short but they were learning how to communicate and we had our third child when he turned five. We would always do this moment of re writing letters and reading the letters at our dining room table so he grew up here in his father received letters his mother his brother and sister so when he turned five he said. I WANNA DO LETTERS. I want in and so he actually turned from the Observer to the writer so he started as early as five and I believe the power in at read is the consistency like we chose birthdays. And so we know every birthday we're gonNA gather and have letters and of course being a mother and a father. We've added the mother and father's day letter in there too. Oh of course you have to make sure that you've got a little extra recognition for all the hard work you do for raising your children It's the best gift. Jerry Seib really love those letters absolutely so I think like anybody else. Not all of our lives are rainbows and lollipops. Right kind of goes through a hard time and sometimes that hard time is reflected onto our family. How can the letter be used as a catalyst for accomplishing forgiveness? Or even reconciling some things in the past one of the best ways that I think he can open up. The line of Communications is through the power of a letter. I would think that you would agree with me read. Don't you feel that when a relationship is broken? One of the most difficult things is to be able to come back and talk face to face because there's so much hurt and there's so much wounding and you still wind up fighting and you don't reconcile but I feel when you can write in a letter. What you like about that person. What you love about that person that you've missed the relationship that you're sorry that they disagreed you know. Can we start again? I believe you can maybe crack a door open. That has been slammed shut for years and that could be the beginning of the communication. Because it's a safe place to see if you can open that door again and we have a great story with our children. They were seven and five at the time at that time. We were doing Christmas letters as well. And you know how children are they. Can they argue? They fight and they wrote their letters and nobody knows what's written in the letter to you. Read it and my daughter wrote a letter to her brother saying that she was so sorry that he was mean to her and he she wished that he could be a nicer brother and my son and in his letter to his sister wrote. I know I haven't been a great brother and I know I've been hard on you. I'm really sorry. When they both read their letters. They looked at each other and they ran over and they hugged each other and Oracle. The letter gave the voice to the prop room. And so I know children can do that. I really believe adults can do that. And you know in this crisis time read. I'm really thinking hearts are being tender is D- A lot of people are klaren teen. A lot of people are thinking about really what is important in life now. This may be a great time to write that letter to that broken relationship and try to restore it absolutely. I think as many people would agree with me. A family is very important especially during these times. That's really who you're GONNA hold dear. You have close. I know I personally have been talking to my mother way more than I have before during this little walk down. I'm sure this letter can go even further pass. Your family can not absolutely you know. I believe everybody in life should receive a letter from someone so I really think if you sat down and thought about it you may have that teacher that mentor that business partner that neighbor that Fran and somebody who's impacted your life that you could just take time and write them a letter to let them know how they impacted your life. It would mean the world to them

Ariana Reines: A Sand Book

"Tell me why four hundred pages. Why is a sand book longer than any new book of poetry that I know? Well I love big books and I love books that go beyond themselves and I always want something that will stay with me and our experience now happens in so many different registers and in so many different worlds incommensurate worlds and I guess I wanted to make something that would bear witness to that. I think you want to take your reader by Connor. Scruff of the neck back of the head. The way you'd pick up a very little kitten and say have a full experience come everywhere with me. Be SHOCKED BE HORRIFIED. Be filled with joy. Go through the gamut of everything we can do together and I will risk it. I will risk if you will come with me. The chorus of this book is sobbing whenever you are truly moved. You're on the verge of psalms and you manage. She's nodding her head. I'm not making this up and you manage to make me Saab or want to solve too but I thought you might all get a kick out of hearing upon Bohemian rhapsody because there was recently a queen movie. Here's what we mean rhapsody Bohemian rhapsody. The past was a thing a sucker to melt in the mouth history. A brand hovering over the event a person the moist place into which a thing investigated dissolved into poison into food into waste. My stranger whose face all recognize long long after. I'm gone from here. This sucker is ancient still in. Its rapper dried. Diane Are Bisque Candy. A feeling like history. Oh America Oh twentieth century I can still taste you. I can still taste your waist in my own. Unspent potential I would have tweeted these things but my computer was broken so down it went out my white Penn down the vein of my right arm beneath which my innate vibrates on the seat of the train change in pockets. Cleanest of all mornings to awaken from such antiquated dreams global warming. They said but it was called climate change now morning of unutterable brilliant see light PA mated with all the false summers of all the cosmetics in all the Sephora 's but beautiful but beautiful she said and like the blonde Palestinian stripper. Whose voice with that early twenties to loudness of the wounded and assertive and tender revealed. Something of the permanence of her promise to her own disatisfaction praise praise her rage. Oh Baldwin the beauty of your characters. Commitment to loving in their own way no matter how difficult -ly their own ways unfurl no matter how loan lily they never suffer without your compassion and so the world suffers with ours. I love that ending. I mean it's killer. Baldwin makes appearances and several of these poems occurs in the interim between Whitman and Arianna rhines. Baldwin is an all prophetic figure? Opening up the impossible to speak of situation and saying but we must we must speak of it. I also love this lollipop that Stan rbis candied so old. You can just see the Diane rbis photograph of something to agree to not be beautiful and I wanted to ask. Why Bohemian Rhapsody? Well I do love that song. Wayne's world was my first tape that I ever bought and it you know really resurrected that song for my generation but One of the things that is in Baldwin's novels is also a story of Bohemia you know and And that blonde Palestinian stripper. Whose incredible who you know who? I met in a friend's basement apartment just the way that we do. I was just thinking about how we bear witness to our lives. You know and And I and the

Fixed Reactions

"Back my friends. I'm Deepak Chopra and this is daily. Yesterday we took a look at the notion of some skyora reacting in the same limited way over and over this makes us biological robots. There's no creativity. There's no imagination. There is no fun so today. We look at how most people try and fail to tame the mind by getting caught in three-fifths reactions when looked at closely. All three of these behaviors. Come after the fact that deal with the minds disorder as the cause of the distress rod then as symptom so then the solutions also have negative effects. So how do people tried to change their behavior or even changed the behavior of others? They do this through manipulation through control and through denial in fact all these. Three things are entangled manipulation control. Deny let's take an example. You're three or four years old and you're at the shopping mall with your mother and you wonder Lollipop. And she says no then you first manipulation is being nice mummy. Please buy me the lollipop. I'll give you a kiss etc etc. If she refuses taking manipulation is Being nasty you throw me relied on the ground you scream. You have a temper tantrum. If that doesn't succeed then when you come home you hide you about become stubborn and your innocence unavailable Hugh. I'm manipulating and trying to control by being stubborn through withdrawal. And if that doesn't work then you go to your mom and you say you nice to my brothers and sisters but not nice to me Which means you play the victim. So being nice being nasty being stubborn being obstinate pouting and playing the victim are actually all control. Dramas that your ego uses to express itself and yet as we know the Egos just yourself amid. It's not who you are. And so if false construct is trying to manipulate situations in to fulfillment this is what we all want fulfillment the fulfillment of desire be one to have meaning and purpose in life. We wanted to be happy between actually in denial of who we are and as a result of this. Everything that we do to control to manipulate is the result of the denied of intimacy with our own staff so everyone should be aware of this and before you make a choice. It is very important to actually know your tendency to react. And that's why I always say pressed pause button and observe your reaction to react just that you know. Stop take a few debretts smile. Failure Body be observant. What's happening around you and then proceed with awareness and compassion. And just in doing that. You are beginning to free yourself and your mind is automatically being tamed. You can tame the mind. It's like a caged monkey but when you get rid of the bars than there's nothing to tame and all you have to realize that what was causing you distress was attachment to a construct that's all attachment to an idea. And once you realize that you as awareness intrinsically not that which you're experiencing that intrinsically awareness free of all its experiences then you can change the direction of your choices to give you the experience of a joyful energetic body as reflective alert. Mind loving compassionate heart lightness of being but denard it to do that. You have to get the habit of observing your reaction to react and not being in denial that most of the time you're a biological robot

Should I Prune My Magnolia?

A Way to Garden with Margaret Roach

06:18 min | 1 year ago

Should I Prune My Magnolia?

"Bonnie is the reader and she says I want to know. If you should prune in Edith bogue Magnolia minds about eight to nine years old. She says it's getting rather bushy and is more of a Bush than a tree. She wants to know what she can do about that. So it's a kind of a bushy plant. Naturally it is. I grow a few by the Rhode Screen. And they're fantastic and they're totally evergreen in my six zone six a garden but they grow their shrubs grow more like Christmas trees the lollipops and right. I just make mine a little bit tidier every year. Just a bit But when could printer into along lollipop or enjoy it as a fat plant that you can't see the road through? I think though at eight to nine years I mean it's it wants to be parameter is at the word Akira middle. I don't never know how to pronounce that. Which Act the accent should be on which syllable right is that? The question So so you know it's it's Bushier at the bottom and then narrower at the top and that's natural habitat great right so if it were young plant in the Field at the wholesale nursery when it was a baby and it was getting trained. That would be. The time may be more to shape it a little. You know what I mean that. Not Eight or nine years after. She's had it which means it's probably fifteen years or whatever you know twelve thirteen years after it got its early training. Whatever that was so once they get going. They're pretty fast. I think atr nine. That's probably a pretty big plan. That's what I mean is that Yeah So yes you can't I would never cut partway into a branch of one of these would you? I mean I would take out a branch would no I? I think you could shape it. yeah. I think I think of them as again. They have such a distinctive shape. A form Willie this bogus is kind of chubby in the shade. There gangly kind of call do okay. And as he said in the field when it's trimmed it probably is a Christmas tree shape pretty much or something like that right but in a garden and with a little shade and depending on the moisture and everything it could be mine gets Kinda out of shape and I do just prune back. I'll prune hathaway on a branch ticket sticking out in the wrong direction and it looks like it's misshapen. Oh so you'll go back part of the way into one. Okay okay all right all right. Good so So so the reason I bring that questioning. Even though we're GONNA digress. Slightly is that that Magnolia as I've been corrected grandiflora which is what I meant to say. Not Virginia another native. Make million species right. You know those are native. But they're not native where you garden or where I garden And so you know we're WANNA add more natives to our landscapes and so forth and you know when you and I began gardening most of the sort of it plants and really. I think it's still in many cases were Asian plants plants of Asian origin. Yes mostly will. They were aliens. Yeah we're exotics because some came from your too but I'd say that was SORTA. The trendy thing was for Asian plants because for example Japan and a lot of China has a very similar climate to our house. Yes we're patron. Japan have been around for since like eighteen fifties or sixties but China. It all new. Yeah so you and I both began. We got the bug and we began a sort of collectors of cool things from oddball catalogs before the Internet. Not that we're older anything and in fact you even did a book called the collectors garden in Nineteen ninety-six but two years before that you already had an inkling about natives sort of before its time has come in a big way and you wrote a book called the Natural Habitat Garden in one thousand nine hundred ninety four and so here. Yeah well to yeah and you were kind enough to take meet all these incredible places where people who again were ahead of the curve gardening with natives. But here we are. We still kept collecting things. What are we doing sort of? What's the remedy you know if we WANNA be more ecological environmental etc? I mean I'm not throwing out my whole garden. That's the punchline for me but I'm trying to come up with ways to make room and I think you are too yes and encourage people to think about this in the future. I think that if I could have all native garden I would but it can't. It's not just because of the wonderful plants I planted over. The years has a lot to do with that but I will. There's some of them are so wonderful. So like you said I'm not gonNA plow them all under some of them are gigantic trees But I'm you know one thing I did is. I took a survey of the plants. That are here that are actually indigenous to my county in northwest corner of New Jersey and I found that there were over a hundred species in your garden. And they're planted like you know there's a flocks in with the other plants and there's somebody a an and you you probably remember. I have a woodland garden that I made from from the start twenty years ago with mostly plants from ten mile radius of this site and where I live but it's a very complex site because it's an island in a river and hardwood forest. So there's a lot to choose from but there is a lot to choose from many many places online. You're talking about online where you can find lists of plants that are indigenous or native to your area.

"The whole music and I wanted to. Yeah we haven't okay so yeah. Even though you're the podcast was private. Did they still private. Yeah that's the word right. Is it. Yeah it was made private. That's why you didn't get somebody. How many up votes were the Unicorn? One hadn't finished it yet a a lot of things but in your mind you were making this up. Yeah it turns out that for years the FBI has been Working with scientists who are working on a very very special project and so. They assumed that Chris Paul was part of me. I say not. Is that the the Unicorn. PODCAST was all about finding yourself making making yourself a unique individual when there were lots of really great songs I quote inspirational quotes hanging there little buddy and there were not a callback. If they don't know I'm just saying they It's part of a multi university where he can seem in any order. No the Like there was a song in there that I just hadn't gotten the lyrics right yet. It's I have a horny. It's just like it wasn't where it needed to be. Everything felt weirdly vaguely sexual. Shouldn't have felt that way it's about UNICORNS and making your childhood drugs. Hornet new like as I have. But there was a romance between a Horse in a rhino in my podcasts. Yes but you want his love his love his love. Rhino Horse Love is love. So so you're telling me that you're telling me that we all know husbandry in your idea with animal husbandry a horse in a rhino. Maybe it was animals injury. Yeah they're love created something so unique it manifest in different species right but and you didn't know that you were correct. I did not know absolutely correct. Apparently like they're they're it's it's like a thing and it's become actually Like they were they were really kind of agitated was bad and they were lucky that left to La when you did yeah and and we were in Seattle so we were safe apparently because well but then also the Well it was as as FBI's wanted to do they. We're like we don't like how close your home so they be on the plane and sent us back around to go on our adventure in writing coach even though the whole plan was empty except for us just an accident But like what I did do do. I don't know if I told you guys. Is that unprecedented that podcast. Now that I knew how popular my sci-fi podcast was on private. Yuna probably wasn't a good thing was that the the FBI was already on our doorstep plane step And then we started seeing all those rainbows outside the window. You got a lot of There were many rainbows and then we started seeing the flying UNICORNS. Burns don't fly that's UNICORNS. Uniform the narrow definition of universal never do they aren't are re ICEE. They've fly thing here's I here's the thing this story okay. I'm sorry I didn't mean UNICORNS are real. You are real. They've been created they are real thing and they fly. No yes no. People make up all these facts about UNICORNS like they can fly. They're like they're whatever but UNICORNS are real and all of these lies about them out in the world are pissing them off and they're very very angry than we saw them flying because they were jumping Very high goes to say what they were. We're trying to get into the plane right. So what we did was the first classes excess goats like who was the name of a goat. And we can we sacrifice comes out and it would kind of get Impaled the Horn of the uniforms trajectory firefight. It was me releasing this podcast then enraged the UNICORNS and jumping this. You're talking talking about a apparently them flying and all about the songs yeah there were rainbows. There were lots of rainbow that was just because we're going through rain. Niece multiple rainbows felt inside a chime. Kamali pops yeah just because I class the cabinet wasn't in First Class. We were flying like we start going to avoid the jumping lines. The first class cabin food trade went back into the economy. Lollipop Lollipop SCIENC- honestly came from unicorns core wanted misinformation misinformation about out out there about UNICORNS. And I just want to talk about crazy teeth. Their teeth are fine. They chomped those goats so fast obliterated them they have large teeth like horses. Do but horse is a horse of course of course assigned to wrap things up. Go on the plane get off. We realize we've realized that Chris can only tell the truth. And so a liens are real and UNICORNS are real and apparently destroying la because of scientists by probably needed to rebuild. Any really scared to get off the plane but then what happened was really impressive. We we were still in place on the plane. We were scared in general about what was going to happen and so suddenly we hear sound like ringing down from the heavens wins like singing and young and it was these aliens Chris. We also realize that increase was right about everything headed uniform. Aliens had a song that calmed the Unicorns down and it went. It went like this. Well everybody humanizing it taste harmonizing. Okay what you.

Honestly the goats definitely go. It's really changed. My actually it was it was kind of crazy because as we were are coming up we basically like women like pulled into the gate There was someone knocked on the door of the plane. The plane was rolling up to this and then like the the gangway and that's name actually And then someone knocks on the door and opened it and it was it was remarkable how polite the FBI were to knock on the door because they knew the plane was we were going to open into line. We're here came and they look back at it again. Oh my God those two you to know why already killed one podcast. Can we kill all of them. So I guess there's no rule Against that but that's Kinda snuck it in and so we're going to let it go and I'm not gonNA flushed. My goes down the Tomlinson but all of a sudden the the FBI came in.

Except for or they never had a name he never did never asked were the only one sitting next to him. I was tired. You're a bad Alerts Chris that he is telling the truth in his science fiction podcast which was shy. took it as a huge shocking to all of us and the thing that they do is they have a lie detector test that they bring on board and as we all know. Wow the light. The light detector test is is you did say holding onto a goat self censoring. They brought Christopher. There's no editing. And then just about but yes the sound is not live but they did did bring the lie detector Goat Yes goat came on board And so they plugged. They plugged the the wires from the the light. It you want another vote before anybody else. Kathi detector. No Oh you did his wires from his horns And and what did they do. They like forehead or I just wonder Nipple nipples amount of heart rate that they can detect better through your nipples than through your temples and if you tell a lie then and the goat goats go three times. And if you're telling the truth it's bleat okay baas that's a sheep sheep sheep name. Sal I'm GONNA see the goat goats three Times if you're lying and if you're telling the truth only goats wants so there's just a lot of goading. There's a lot going on no matter what you sack. Yes yeah I mean the along spaces between each of the goats. Oh they're law depends on what it can. Sometimes I was worried they were going to cut it off so it'd be like Oh there's one but it was actually going to be three. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Keep it on your toes telling them about your podcast and the goat was just bleating. Why go down the hallway through? He would just bleep bleep. It turns out that thing says is true. It turns out my entire our concepts of the history of inches aliens teaching us and how to sing and create art in our ears is exactly how it happened and Dan Miri because I never heard the goat bleat three times in a row and think it just is a vocal goat who was bleeding while we're speaking speaking and the FBI was just. They're gonNA have a real thing. I wasn't clear on up to this. Point is how invested vested in Animal Husbandry Animal Husbandry I mo husbandry the. FBI was. He's right well they were asking you if you knew anything else. They just basically wanted story ideas and I was like. You're not gonNA take my podcast ideas. Yeah they said we know and I said what do you now. We know everything and they know what they were thinking you know about. You know about my Unicorn podcast l.. It said yes Chris what I can't get there this fast. We have to tell the story I was hold on. No it's not at that percents but if we get they're not that fast.

Biogen stock plunges 28% after ending trial of Alzheimer's drug

"Story is all about by gin. And what I can. I think comfortably say is the biggest most anticipated by Mary event in biotech for twenty nineteen. We didn't think we would get data from Biogen on their Alzheimer's drug educating mave until twenty twenty well, we got news, and we got it today. Basically they have shuttered their late stage phase three trials for this drug. It was an independent data monitoring group that said basically this drug works, no better than placebo by gin and partner east side decided to shut it down. So for those unfamiliar and look even someone like me who is not invested in the pharmaceutical industry. Even I have an awareness of Biogen by virtue of how long the company's been around. How big the company is or I should say how big the company was because shares of bio Jenner down nearly thirty percent on this news one point analysts were saying this Alzheimer's drug. If Biogen makes this work. This could be doing ten to twelve billion dollars a year in revenue and now it's going to be doing zero. And this is at a time whereby Jen has basically placed all its bets on this one drug. They've got a core. Multiple sclerosis franchise. This franchise has been in decline over the years really just due to competition. It's such a crowded field out there. But even more importantly, they've been able to kind of offset the decline in that franchise with just one drug, and that's been spin Rosza for those that listen industry, focus. We've talked a lot about that drug. But really the story for by is like where is your next big growth opportunity gonna come from? And for a lot of investors a lot of analysts they were hoping it was going to be this Alzheimer's drug as you mentioned t- ten to twelve billion in annual peak sales. I mean, that's huge right now for by. And there's nothing and it's pipeline that was as late stage and had such a tremendous opportunity as at kidnap did. So. This is a huge disappointment. Not just for the company, obviously for investors, but even more so really for patients, the Alzheimer's failure rate for new drugs is ninety nine percent, Chris. I mean, the the odds were stacked up against the company. So you would have thought they would have diversified much more than they have. But to say, this is a disappointment is really an understatement at this point. So yesterday by Jim was a sixty three billion dollar company today. It's a forty four billion dollar company. That's still something that's still so much bigger than almost every other company in the public markets, or certainly the vast majority of them, you said they've got nothing in the pipeline is like how dire is the future for Biogen. Because I someone like me who doesn't really know anything says, well, they're still worth forty four billion dollars. They must have something going on. Or are they in more like our let's start with this the stocks down when we walked in the studio twenty nine percent. Are you surprised? It's not more. Yes. Just because so much was riding on this. Drug one of the problems is that they're pipeline. They actually have a pretty deep pipeline. The problem is an extremely risky pipeline. So they have more products. Alzheimer's? They've got a Parkinson's drug on their pipeline. Probably the riskiest pipeline and olive biotechs. When you're looking out long-term growth opportunities if they can even hit on one of these targets than yes, it certainly justifies having such a huge market Cup. The problem is though because it's so risky, and they don't have a ton of late stage assets that can very quickly diversify Indira's the pipeline. That's really the big question, Mark. So for me, I'm looking at. Okay. Bye. Now is the time to really get aggressive in terms of your business development. There are a ton of small players out there. Hello Newark in biosciences alot sage their Pudi. The just got approval for postpartum depression, all of these smaller players that fit right into their CNS. They're they're neuroscience focused pipeline, I think could plug in. So I'm hoping that they'll actually do some bolt on acquisitions sooner rather than later. Or the other option on the table. Of course, is once you start really piling on the failures. Once you start having just a very risky pipeline. You become a takeover target yourself is kind of like either eat or be eaten and biotech. And I think that's kinda whereby Jin

Marijuana Lollipop May Have Triggered Man's Heart Attack

"So the authors do believe that this large dose of THC, which is the second component of marijuana. Put a sudden unexpected strain on the heart. It then increases heart rate cause hallucinations anxiety, therefore, causing blood pressure to rise at more heart rate, going up stress hormone catch a cold Amine got released all of that could affect on Now. This new case is one of many reports two thousand fourteen there was a young man in the UK at a heart attack after smoking marijuana. We've also talked about I've had this on my show. I've thought about this where there was a link between cardiomyopathy and heart failure. The younger the patients the word risk. They are two sudden, death and heart failure to marijuana. There was a study a couple years ago Lincoln wanted to transient ventricular regional ballooning. TV are be which is a ballooning part of the heart muscle. Not allowing it to pump right, hence heart failure. So this isn't the first time in two thousand sixteen. There was a study out of Saint Louis university hospital and found bear wanted to cause stress. Cardiomyopathy that is also a ballooning. And drugs can do that as well being sorrowful during a death? And being in grieving could also cause that, but unfortunately, this TV Rb is something that we are seeing more and more times linked to marijuana. Now, the reason why people, you know, people will not believe this height because adopted I hope wait a sec marijuana's been around for decades. And now that is legal is were hearing it could cause heart problems. I don't buy it. We should have heard about a decades ago. Well, yes, I agree. If there was a link we should have heard about it in the sixties and seventies. But think about me when I was an ER dog I asked about drug use. But if I had a guy with a heart attack or you couldn't speak too much. And he said no to that answer really quickly. I'm not really gonna go that much farther. I'm going to address his heart attack. Then I'm going to get him admitted. The transfer him some more, and then that's the end of that. And I don't go into the marijuana history. So before the legalisation of marijuana if I was in an acute care setting. I didn't really spend that much time on oh you smoke marijuana. There was a link because again, I had to get the guy stabilize again transferred. So it wasn't me. Now, what about the cardiologists could the cardiologists done it? He got the cardiologists all these years could have done it. But again their job is the heart. You know, if somebody denies that they smoke marijuana. Not everybody's going to get a drug test. They have a right to privacy. So I'm sure the average person when marijuana was illegal said no last thing, they want is the police coming because they admitted to have done something illegal. So my guess is many of the heart attacks that we have had. You know that might have occurred in pot smokers. There was always the leak it just it wasn't really publicized. So the interrelation of smoke. Maybe worse that edible. We're still trying to figure that out. People are asking me is safer to eat it than smoke. It. For the most part. I'd say yes, I don't like people bothering the lungs and making the lungs do things that that they weren't designed to do like filtering out cannabis antiques. However, people who smoke could get away with less dose that edible. And so what this lollipop they're making more. They're having multiple servings of THC, I don't understand why they would do that with the lollipop because I mean, you lick a lollipop it's already kind of dirty. You're supposed to throw it out. But apparently a lot of these lollipops are designed for multiple licks just doesn't make sense. So the history of the lollipop. This is interesting. They say the oldest precursor of today's lollipop this been reported by groovy candies dot com. Was from ancient Africa in Asia. Archaeologists believe that Chinese eras any all produce fruits and not confections that they candied in Honey, which serves as a preservative and inserted stakes into making it to make it easier to eat during the middle ages. They said the nobility would often eat boiled sugar with the aid of sticks or handles in the seventeenth century sugar became more available in Europe. And so the English enjoyed boiled sugar candy treats and inserted sticks into them. So in America, they think maybe maybe before the civil war, but this is George Smith of New Haven, Connecticut. Claim to be the first one vent the modern style lollipop and that was nineteen o eight. He used the idea of putting candy on a stick to make it easier to eat initially lollipops were soft rather than hard candy. Oh, I would prefer a soft candy. And then with automation they were able make multiple lollipops. Apparently in one thousand nine hundred they can make twenty four hundred lollipops per hour. And then in nineteen twelve of Russian immigrants Samuel born invented a machine that inserted six county. So then they can make a lot now lollipop beans tongue slap. Apparently, that's according to linguists, and they believe that one Dan street vendors were the ones that coined the name. Some suggest lollipop maybe a word of Roman or Roman origin related to the Roma tradition of selling coffee apples on a stick. I guess red. Apple is called lolly father. That's really

There was other people that started talking about this EMMY Rossum who's on shameless Hanlon to say about this too, and you know, oh, Jimmy. Djamil from the good place, all Instagram about it. I didn't think she had this much power. Again, commentary went after Kim about this, especially famous women who have aligned themselves with having eating disorders.

She's also basically subscribed like fake laxatives slash vitamins for pregnancy, like prenatal vitamins that are supposed to make you skinny.
