"Have a really bad day. You're grumpy to every survey with a nice to be around, but then the next day. You go and help out with thing and you do some past development. It's not black white. Even this well, would you get fed information and some days? That is too much. Handle it, and you just have to shoot yourself in a room and do whatever hobby is. He takes your mind away and then the next day you can be the best passed and you WANNA be again. I agree with you. It's not black and white. And I think the. I guess WHA. What I what I guess. I'm trying to say is the with religion. It's not black and white as well. It's not like religious, either good or bad I think religion. Like anything can be. Good it can be incredibly life, changing and transformational, and I've seen it happen. A seen people completely turn their lives around through binding finding a community. In religion but equally scene, it's destructive side as well and I think the more that we understand and appreciate that life is not black and white there is. No. Right or wrong? Oh, yes, or no or a binary in life. The life is completely in the gray. That everything is. Everything is complicated. Nothing is. There's no simple answers like that. You gotta remember. Which is chemical reactions? Taking place every single second. Hoffa people to understand the actually. Their consciousness is just a load of particles combining together. To become a foles an action. And actually we all animals, we basic on a moves. We have basic needs but we've developed so much that we can understand so much about ourselves. That can become very complicated to even think about that as a process. And I think that's why rich people like religion it gives them an answer to those questions, and it gives purpose on at times of distress like someone dies. Let's say a a child has been born. It gives them protection the actually. This child May pretentiously now have a more secure life because we ties his child. Wouldn't it was in? There's times when you need that community to come together. People like religion. Yeah. I mean there's no. In many ways there's no greater force for good in a time of crisis than the church. If you will going through a hard time the. The the understanding of evolution and the. Formation of the universe through the Big Bang. Is Not going to provide you comfort, but a community supporting you making food checking in with you. All of that stuff can, and that is the good that I've seen in the local church. It's just the. Fact that it's is not A. I think is understanding. That? Good doesn't raise the bad and the bad doesn't raise that good. The A can both coexist and do coexist exists than we thought to get used to that. And I think as well. We're moving towards a point where. Religion and spirituality is gonNA. Be Less about do I in this book, so do I fit in this box. Do my beliefs. Do I believe in Christianity or Islam or Buddhism I think people are gonNA realize. That all of these ideas can be helpful to us. In some ways, and may be helpful to us in different situations in. It's about taking what is useful at the time. And and using not. And is about the spirit behind. The. The religion rather than. Institution that it's become. Yeah, it is essentially you should take values. You take and apply your life. I think it has to be in high meaning. Have thought makes sense. For me. Obviously I'm not religious, but things dodge tried to price in my life, won't the environment? It is must-see thing if I can impact is some way my life for example right now we're looking at house might be even so house and I'm thinking okay, Cole, maybe now's the time, should I do gardening? Should I get compost bin? These very simple basic things I could do it my days. They live to make an impact. For once. Yeah, that's that's a growing up. So that's one value. Your the people friends family, doing those little bits and pieces around from the people. which helps these quiet religious odds? To go above, and beyond help a friend or someone in need as I know, people have been that for me. I've got an analogy to describe religion for you, and it uses trains Joe so. I want you to imagine for me. The I'm giving you directions from one part of London to another, so I tell you you need to get on the northern line via Banque towards Morton, and that will be how you get to Camden. and. That's directions from London Bridge Station so anytime that you're going from London Bridge to Camden new, get the northern line via bank. However. If say a few days later, your trying to get to Camden again. And, you'll say Morton, which is the complete other end of London the complete other under the northern line? If you're getting a northern line via Banque, you're gonNA end up going way past. Come and you're GONNA MISS YOU STOP! It. A lot of people see religion as like these instructions, the we take, and we, we take them out of their context and say okay. You know the Bible says. You need to go via Banque to that for therefore you need every time you do it. You need to go via Banque actually. Humanity is progressed so much more since then A. we're coming. We starting our journey from much later point on the journey, because more morally where a lot more progress were not a lot more advanced, so a lot of the laws in the Bible seem very backwards because they coming from much earlier point in time. So my question, you would be then why people considering why people consistently trying to evolve religion. What actually maybe? We just need to leave it. Nevada, okay, what are we lead from? It was a good come from those times. A very old human way of thinking, we should not wrong a very long time ago. It's also a time when we didn't have information. Being shed every single second an access to that information. So maybe why don't we just leave it? Leave it in the poss. Dismiss it. And move on takeoff values. All. We're GONNA. Progress better with or without beauty question. I guess what I'd say to that. Is, the. Yes, we've got. A lot of information now. I don't think information is the endo. You've got to know what to do with that information. You've got to have some kind of wisdom in that. And I think the good stuff that we can take from.

"The day. You had barely begun at London Bridge Station when the delay announcement started pretty miserable returned to work for train. Commuters only only made worse by this morning's average fare rise of two point seven percent. That's justified hike. According to Robert Nisbet from the rail delivery group which represents train in companies where an industry like any other that's facing rising costs the staff bill for example but said he'll costs as well what we want to do is we want want to cover the day to day running cost of the railway to free up billions of pounds of investment for the public and private sector. But this is an average figure. It's still just below the rate of inflation flation and that's for the third year running but for some passengers using South Western railways. The increased prices were compounded by cancellations. The aftershock of a twenty seven day strike by the RMT union. An editorial column can't quite believe it. The reason for the latest cancellations nations is the gods who inflicted the strike have been off-duty for so long. They need to be retrained to ensure that they are properly refreshed in terms of all necessary. Surrey safety activities. The same applies to some drivers. The situation would be farcical if it were not so serious it is yet. Another reminder of the damage caused by the unions militancy regarding its misguided grievance over the role of train gods it is worth pointing out again. An experience on other lines has shown that drive only trains are safe the fact that the disruption now has to continue even longer perhaps more legitimate safety safety reasons is a bitter irony that will be of little consolation to passengers implementation of the government plan. John Fashanu Union legislation banning future rail strikes unless the union concerned has reached a minimum service agreement with the relevant rail. Company cannot come seen enough city hall editor Raw. Slider we've been talking about the fare rises for a few months now now. They've hit and nobody's happy. Are They not happy for commuters coming into London today at the regretted certainly with a seeing the season tickets going up by I. Two point seven percent two point eight percent and also those own southwestern railways the trains that come into Waterloo had the added misery of having lots of the trains not running. And this is a this culmination of what's been a very long running saiga queer the RMT guards have gone straight. Take the the actually. The strike ended last night actually at midnight. It Run for twenty seven days making it the longest streak in Yuki real history. But I'm afraid. The fakes continued. TEND TO S- morning and hundreds of trains were cancelled again because bizarrely some of these girls had been off so long on strike that they were then judged to require l. safety training to make sure they were fit to print the trains again. That cannot have gone down well with commuters Gannett. You can imagine how few days would be as as we see to the. Ns this double whammy really if you if you. You wouldn't be happy to be going back to work today on a sort of chilly January for stay back in the office. I you're paying more for your travel and then you're standing on the platform waiting for the train to come in. It doesn't come and you just think it just couldn't get any more ludicrous. Really for people no fun at toll. So do we know when things will get back to normal. Well even Woz news is that there could be more strikes on the way the RMT has not given upon this the row center in what's called driver only operation which essentially means that the drivers open and shut the doors the MTA says this is not safe which is disputed rated by the train operator on the RMT's arguing to have conductor or a guard on all trains as is the case on some lanes. Just no those no say that Stroz going to go away and anytime soon and more stake. These could be announced in the next few weeks. There is some good news on transport unspoilt in London. The mayor of London has announced a new companion packs which means for those disabled under this. Those older Londoners who need a companion to get around the city. We'll have a free companion pass and often an a companion for a disabled landed. A as as bad as having a lift having step free access and this is another example of the difference we will make should. I be returned. The Math London will city has kicked off the New Year. By essentially going into reelection moods the middle elections are coming coming up on the seventh of me and CDC as part of his sort of I sort of a Rybeck intone. He saying that he's come up with this. Hi Dear we are if you are. A Disabled Londoner underrated qualify for disabled persons freedom. Pass which essentially give you free travel across chips and buses in the capital but need help to go around if you have a family member a relative or friend who is your cater Sadique site here is that should he be reelected. Come me he will then ensure that that person the killer gets a free pass as well. But the mayor's record in improving access to tis stations isn't quite promised as it. That's right you could see. It's probably a second-class Service so far from city he has upgraded taints shoop Stations to make them stay free since he was elected. Me Twenty Sixteen. His initial promise was that more than one hundred would have converted to being state deep-freeze essentially helping lifts or ramps to make sure you can get from outside the station to onto the train Byron Means Essentially using lifts and so on the hill of others. That has not happened so there is a sense that yes this is a good idea to have the companion pass but he has actually not been delivering quite as much as he promised I initially when he was when he was first elected. Are we now at the point where we're going to be hearing a lot about relations. I think we may be. I guess the combination nation of bricks being slightly closer to being done the new government in place on the be a gradual speeding up towards me. I think I I think it will be gentle. I wouldn't expect much until props six weeks I really Under me actually. Be overtaken in the public interest by Costa Twenty the football championships as well. That makes catch ribot more which comes up slightly later but I think I would expect to be more policy announcements akin to this but city.

"Aw you know that feeling of being a tourist in a totally foreign land. How rich all the tiny details are how densely asleep layered the memories? You can look back on a day and marvel at just how much you managed to pack in whereas a day of normal routines can be hard to remember tool one of the things that Brian Eno is trying to achieve with his strange cards. Is that same sense of attention of being alert. The enemy of creative creative work is boredom. Actually and the friend is alertness. Now I think what makes you alert is to be faced with a situation that is beyond in your control so you have to be watching it very carefully to see how it unfolds to be able to stay on top of it. That kind of alertness is exciting. Exciting there is nothing like an unfamiliar problem to make you start focusing if things feel out of your control maybe even a little dangerous that gets the adrenaline flowing. In the right circumstances the creative juices to this attention grabbing affect applies whether we're talking about I'm trying to play a strange instrument navigate a strange place or work together with a strange person Ahmad. It sounds dramatic it can work its magic to subliminal subliminal level. It can be something as subtle as whether the words were reading on a page look. Familiar ord consider acidic study by the psychologists connor diamond. Yaman Daniel Oppenheimer an Erica Vaughn. They teamed up with high school teachers getting them to reformat format teaching handouts. They used half that classes chosen at random. Got The original materials in standard fonts such as times new Roman the other half got the same documents reformatted into one of three challenging fonts. The dense text of hadn't sh- filer. The cursive flourishes of monotype Cordova or zesty bounce of Comic Sans Talent is these funds are. Let's be honest distracting and hard to read but the ugly fonts didn't hamper. The students at all students who'd been taught using them ended up scoring higher on their exams. We don't know exactly why but it seems that the strange chance prompted them to pay attention to slow down and to think about what they were reading. If such obstacles make Carr's focus and think harder they may end up not being obstacles at all but secret weapons now. There's a second reason that the oblique strategies may have helped David Bowie. They pushed pushed him to try something. Fresh Brian Eno described to me the tendency of highly skilled musicians to end up exploring a narrow territory. Because it's the only place they feel completely comfortable. You get more and more competent at dealing with that place and you'll cliches becoming increasingly really cliche. But when you're forced to start from somewhere new the cliches can be replaced with moments of magic. This effect is well understood. Far outside the realm of music computer scientists use algorithms to look for solutions to complex problems and those algorithms often for news the tactic of stepping back and adding some randomness partway through their search on sort of complex problems. Do I have in mind. There are plenty Planning efficient routes for fleet of parcel delivery trucks figuring out the best layout for a silicon chip. Such problems have so many possible solutions that it's impossible even for a computer to check the ball so computer scientists have developed algorithms that. Try to find a solution that may not be perfect. It's good enough. You'd be surprised. At how many of these algorithms at random shocks and remixes those shocks are there to prevent the algorithm getting stuck on a bad solution in the jargon that's called a local optimum but you're I simply call it a dead end the random shocks chalks offer a way of backing out of the dead end and trying something else. This might seem a long way from our everyday concerns. We know musical musical geniuses and we're not computer algorithms but the same logic is at play in the most humdrum circumstances such as our daily commute for example in my own long standing commute across the London Underground. I know exactly where on the platform I should stand when I get on the first tube train to ensure that after riding riding nine stops including a change of lines in the perfect position to be first on the escalator out of London Bridge Station thus the front of the line for coffee the monmouth coffeehouse near the tube exit find differences in where I stand on a train platform on one side of the city determine how quickly I get my coffee Faye half an hour later on the other side gas. I promised myself never become. That person happened anyway. However you commute you you likely have your own little shortcuts and time saving habits assuming that is those habits really do save you time because according into the logic I've been outlining if you commute being forced to change your plans they actually help you in the long run? It's the obstacle in your path. Offer that forces you to find a better path but in what circumstances might the London Underground possibly be disrupted. I hear you ask well. In February. Twenty fourteen to trade. Unions representing workers on the subway launched a forty eight hour strike which closed well over the half. The stations on the system. The first day of the strike was wet as well as being cold and dark which will have discouraged people from simply walking or getting on a bike. The trains and buses that day were rammed full of grumpy commuters trying to figure out how to get around disruption after the strike. The economists Ferdinand rouch. Sean Larkham and Tim Williams looked at data from London's electronic fare card system. Those fare cards work on the subway the buses else is and the overground trains to row and his colleagues identified. People had to change from their regular route during the strike. Most change back again when the strike was over of course many did not. They realized that there had been getting their own commute wrong. All their lives and all it took took to prompt them into finding a better way with two days of disruption.

S. saw some guy said he saw a group of men in a fight on the bridge police then arrived and that shots were fired so the London Bridge station currently close no trains will be stopping there not not so good on a day like today I will and then just tech interject really quick then we're just getting reports now of another stabbing multiple people stop ash stabbed in the main shopping district in the Hague Netherlands and again this is really new so we we don't have a whole lot of information except that the police are looking for a guy is about forty five to fifty years old and a great jogging suit so apparently that guy has not been captured so do we think these are connected don't know I mean they're not hearing of this one was a terror incident they are saying the one in London was a terror incident it's kind of strange have to stabbing so in you know within a couple hours of each other do you know how far away these are Netherlands and then London ha so different country different countries the countries are very small over there yeah all right closer to home here we just got through some rain in snow but guess what more snow and rain are on the way a new storm forecast to sweep in from the west over the next several days and I love when these forecasters use these terms like super charged by an atmospheric river of subtropical moisture wow that sounds crazy huh but yeah this is what we live with here it's gonna be a lot of precipitation but here's the part they don't know they're calling it like a fire hose which is hard to control lots of rain Saturday afternoon through Sunday but where the heaviest perturbed precipitation is going to be is uncertain so we don't know where it's going to be we just know to me pretty bad so northern and central California gonna get the worst on Saturday and through Sunday which of course is the busy thanksgiving traveling traveling home day so we got it on Wednesday when we are going to our destinations and now we're gonna get back on Sunday we're going back of course I can affect flights to you never know are they have a high wind watch in issued for many parts of coastal nor cal and then a flash flood

fun if you're trying to get back to work on Monday let's be honest you want you have to go back to work you may not want to but you have to and those I can get there because my flight that only goes so far all right and Black Friday is today you know this is the shortest shopping season since twenty thirteen that's because thanksgiving fell on the last Thursday in November which is the latest possible date it could be that means the customers have less time to shop and retailers have less time to get you in those doors I made the mistake one time of going to the mall the day I think was Christmas Eve actually and that was probably the worst possible day to go to the mall producer Megan at joining me what have you been to the mall like the day before Christmas I'm no it's pretty bad is it it's pretty bad I mean old man yeah right it's pretty much all yeah and here's the thing like I I've tried the excuses in the past where I'm just like my wife and I don't get each other guess right and she always gets me something and then next thing you know I feel like the more on on Christmas morning is Mike sweetie I thought we said we were getting each other stuff you have to go I guess it's so that code for you stop me something but I just like to say you have to give me something well I think so see guys are just like I just take it at face value if she's like we're not getting each other stuff I just don't get or anything like I just click it off my list of Mike we're done would have to think about it and the next thing no on Christmas day when she hands over gift only what what's this we'll have to get you something little okay okay her something big which by the way last year's work out clothes so what does that mean she was thinking of your help she's trying to tell me something given that Jim well we haven't seen anything too crazy today when it comes to Black Friday shopping seems like it's pretty calm which for years running we had like I remember there was something that happened up at the target in Simi Valley or the Walmart you know it's like for a few years in a row and then it's been kind of quiet since then it's been very quiet maybe it's because more people are shopping online could that be I mean I maybe that's the case but I I don't know I mean it seems like we're not seeing those crazy maybe people are learning maybe that's what happening maybe that's what is happening all right now this story I love have you watched the commercial or eat T. reunites with Elliott in this thanksgiving ad for Xfinity of all things and it's a I guess an Xfinity as a Comcast a cable or internet or whatever wanna call it but it's a great it's like a four minutes it is an ad but it runs like a little movie and it features E. T. and it is the number one trending video right now on YouTube oh wow yeah this is big and it's it's basically the guy who played Elly it back in the day producer Megan spotted this Henry Thomas is his name I didn't know that you said you used to be obsessed with this movie when your kid yeah I used to watch it all the time when I was like three years old and then I realized that he'd he was an alien and it really freaked me out and your free yeah and then I can watch now I feel like I've to show my kids is more because this out of a large impact on my childhood to I just member how scary that scene was when they kind of like take the whole house in like bubble it up right yeah I mean that is that is terrifying as a kid in like this alien it's I mean maybe eat a lot of Reese's pieces though as a kid Rossum and what about your member the the ride at universal these have an ETA rock I loved that ride that's gone I had to get rid of that I think it's like the mummy the mummy S. right right why would they get rid of that I don't know he would say your name at the end and everything yes remember that a year ago ratchet yeah like something like that does that okay clearly I did not do the voice role of P. T. prefer making you said it was actually a girl that did that yeah I actually Google that couple minutes ago and it was a woman but Henry Thomas okay so this video is four minutes it's kind of like a little Christmas holiday kind of thing where each he comes back to the house that I guess it all started at and it's I got to say this this is a winner it's got four million views on YouTube right now and whoever came up with this idea I mean it's sad that is hawking cable internet I mean that's the downside of this whole thing I mean does does Xfinity does Comcast owned yeah I just got it Comcast universal they own the I.
