Because the late was very close and as because of HD 3 16 that was passed last year. We have as a part of the process is called off. Mm hmm. Whip limiting audit process the kick. Technically, there must be doing a rich limiting audit process as well. So based on that the race that is being audited, of course, is the present sensual. Election cycle so people are now each county is setting up a team to really go. And count can count. Oh, hell, I don't know, because when we say hand count There's no way that somebody is actually picking them paper up looking at account in one at a time. Does that mean? They're just gonna be hand loaded back into the scanner Or what does that really mean? Cause I wouldn't clear on that. Because we got this election. You had what 22 million almost three million people vote. What does that mean? What? What? 4.9 million wow, 4.9 and vote And so are the hand count or they just hand reloading back into the Counting machine. No. No, they're separating. Of course, the ballots. They're put in batches, so they actually for each back They're two people set up in each table. Let's say and for every race that was in the presidential race, each candidate that was in the presidential race. They would have, like, you know, I'm going to look at this ballad. I handed you her literally looking at it. And what I didn't know was that hand count Yeah. It's actually a hand count where it could take forever. I?

Go ahead. I'm sorry. But that's how it happened. You know, if they each team will take them, they will put him in. If one person disagrees. They'll set it aside to be adjudicated by a review panel on that review panel will make a decision as to whether it was cast that That vote was cast for that particular candidate. But let's Mississauga. They manually go back in counter. All right, So let's let's just deal with the process before this hand count, cause I didn't know they would literally hand count. I thought they were gonna just hand him Into the machine again. They're gone. So these all of these ballots? Absentee, um million, however, get there ultimately end up in a machine. Scan, not a scanning machine that calcium. Is that right? When when you go to vote there again in the cannon machine, But for this process here tonight and talk about this process I want I'm just for the sake of argument, although the ballots eventually end up and they go through a machine, because even if you mail your ballot in it is still Elektronik. He clothed coded so that it goes through a machine. And so in mess that machine has 14,000 misread errors on it. And perhaps that is possible. This thing gonna change anything is not gonna change. You know it. I don't think it is election, but November was run better than any election. I've seen. You didn't have many problems. You had a few glitches, but not it makes problems. I think it's been transparent and that people are been engaged in the process. They had. Heart locked people, Paul New poll workers all of that, so, but I don't think it will know because if that system can change 14,000 votes It will have the change a slew of local votes and everything else, but they love the day pass allows them on Lee, which was if you're gonna pass of law scrutiny if you will. Daniel won't scrutinize the whole ballot. You on the one scrutinizes one race because 14,000 could undo a number of races, particularly a statewide races. There were no 14,000 different between us off or who would have got in to run off and the other race. But here's what want to do. I'm glad cause I learned I didn't think it was actually hand count. But now that you said it is that's very labor intensive than people gonna be up all day and all night. To try to get to some level of, you know, counting here will come back.

Pawpaw Fruit Facts
"Let's dig into today's topic. Paul can we start with you You heard my story about how I discovered. Papa's thanks to you How did you discover? Papa's well I stood. Discovered Papa's in the native of trees of Canada. I discovered them on a page. Not In reality. Unfortunately I grew up in a family that was in the produce business My both my grandfathers this were farmers Where we're in the Agra in the native you know in the native Place for Papa's grew or still grow but I had never tasted them mhm nor heard of them and it piqued my interest so much because we had always Prided ourselves on being the first to taste everything that came into the market and new member. One Re Pini Dini came in and went Avocados came into the market and when kiwifruit and star fruit and all. Those things first appeared here And this it was the kind of our native exotic that I had never experienced. So it was part of a schoolyard naturalization pro project and really part of more broadly of using native plants to restore habitat. And so there is there is that broader Value of these trees while of course because they are native They're co evolved with all the insects and diseases that That are here. so they're not susceptible to them and and they host Many important species as well so tell me something so you read about it in a book there. Was this naturalization project in your neighborhood or something. What did you guys do? You never heard about the train you go and you buy it and you plant. or how did that happen well. This was the early nineties so for me. The early days of the of the Internet and I did track someone down through through the interweb of that day. You know very very BA barebones in those days And found some of the Niagara and into we had just you know we were. We're lucky we had just moved into a new home. We had a front yard. That was kind of a had been lawn and of course we didn't want to have lawn anymore. We don't have any lawn and it's such a such a poor use of the small space that we had in in urban setting So we wanted to plant it with native trees stories and We also wanted to scare the view to our neighbor across the street and When I came home we came home? Not with two trees but with two sticks As my partner so kindly So kindly described them and so it took about ten years. Oh my gosh. So th the next ingredient is patients it is. It's really a slow food. Okay it's very slow so it took Tennessee. You plant these trees. Your partner is okay with it. Look like two little sticks What did they look like as they were growing up? As you're nurturing these two little sticks what are they looking. I think the first thing that I notice about them was just so how distinctive the leaves czar. They look like no other tree and I have had a number of people Just walked down the sidewalk and look at them and then the bravest among them go like what tree is that. I think I know all the trees but I've never seen something with such a long feather shaped leaf And you know my my friend. Who spent a lot of time in America around Cacao Trees Religious Jew really notes. How similar they are to cow as well in their structure so they are a very unique looking tree And the and then a when the blossoms came out the blossoms are also fascinating as well. They're very dark Maroon Maroon color I believe they're mimicking meet because they are pollinated by midges That are attracted blow flies. which are attracted to dead meat? So what do they smell like. Do they smell like dead meat. So if you don't smell like dead meat they are the the. They are a little acrid smelling rolling. They're they're certainly not fragrant like an apple blossom right okay so you plant this tree and you're hanging in there and you're waiting mm-hmm and you're waiting you're waiting did you at some point. Did you almost lose your enthusiasm for this. Great idea of planting palm tree. No I think we're there. There are many other things going on and I was very hopeful and I and it was just as I was reading more and more of the work that Lorraine Johnson was doing and other other great Authors were doing around native plants and I would start accumulating references to pop. Aw and when and the more I read about dumb and the and the more I read descriptions of of their flavor the more we just couldn't lose interest because I was just kind of salivating every year and then there is frustration because for a couple of years we got some blossoms but no fruit set and so actually getting pollination especially on isolated trees in in an area where there's really no native no no other surrounding trees that could cross pollinate with them. It took a long time so finally the day comes that you start to see fruit for me. Tell me about what year was that and what was going on for you. That was two thousand and four. I I was involved in agriculture. At that point I was working in the wine industry Saw Back and forth in Agra Lot and really felt that I was kind of telling the the the agricultural story in our urban setting and this was another part of that story And so as they foreign we got very excited. I why did you know the the small. The small mammals do like to climb up and down the trees and sometimes knocked them off before they're fully ripe so that was a little bit of a frustration. Especially when you're you know and we would count the fruits right at the end of his own fifteen this year you know. And then and then there's attrition through the whole season right and but when those first fruits did ripen and you could smell their ripe and you could feel they were right They became very highly price in our in our in jealously guarded. Oh Yeah Y.. Y within our household as well yes okay so in your household old guy. Your first ripe fruit. Is this actually the first time you taste papa. Your own fruit yes. I had never had that point. There were no I. I hadn't yet to see them at farmers markets Forbes wild foods does have some now and now there are some other farmers who are growing them in in a more more commercial quantities. But at that point not at all so what did you think I was just blown away. The the flavor is so mystifyingly defying Li exotic so tropical in its character The texture is so silky and smooth and as they get ripe they get this. Really really beautiful. Creme Brulee characters a bit of a roasted character to them that is just really satisfying and really enhance and attractive. And and then of course you want to multiply your pleasures by sharing them. So that's really what I started to do. Work through slow food and other organizations to you want to really share share the beauty of the of that

"Certainly, when he was a teenager we had to repeatedly call the police on him. We were actually in a first name basis with pretty much every single one of the officers. Yeah, Kevin would punch holes in the walls. He would kick holes in the walls and remember one time we were arguing about something or other. I don't even remember what it was. He had his phone in his hand. He threw it down on the ground shattered, and he looked straight in the face and said, look what you did. Mom look what you did. Goodness, this must of really your self esteem though, as a mother. I mean, it must have taken a massive head. Yeah, I what did I do? Where did I go wrong? What didn't I do? What should I have done? Is it my fault? And this went on probably actually over well over a decade, like right at bedtime. That was when he would love to demand whatever it was. He was demanding because he thought bedtime was a really, really great time to do that. And there would be nights that we would be up for hours to say, no, no, no, no. My husband actually ride media today that we used to sleep in shifts so that one of us could deal with Kevin while the other one got some sleep. Up until that time. Did he get different diagnoses. Oh, we love to call alphabet soup. The first thing that he was diagnosed with was attention deficit without the hyperactivity part. And every doctor we saw seem to agree on that. Actually, you know, the doctor that we were seeing at that point said that she thought it might be OD which is opposite defiant disorder, but you never really officially diagnosed him. We did go see a doctor who gave him a diagnosis of Asperger's. He did that so that Kevin could get services because you get special education services if you have an autism spectrum disorder diagnosis. So the doctor gave them an Spurs diagnosis. He could get services but kept talking about mostly lack of empathy in recent years. There's been some talk about a connection between psychopathy and onto them. Lorraine Johnson fines. Any such connection problematic as it may artificially inflate the numbers of kids, and it may also lead to fewer kids who should be diagnosed with callous and unemotional traits. Lorraine Johnson says, treatment will not work because the two disorders are only superficially similar. Absolutely. Autism has some trees overlap with psychopathy, like lack of empathy, but hap- and you know, the Saint schism might see, but Janez lean my expedients. It's a social communication disorder. People who I've worked with who have autism actually won't to function life. They would really quite lake to have relationships. There's no a sadistic ailment. Nick societally the m- the often highly. By the fact that he can actually function the that they would like to function and the not necessarily charming a, the lack social in Saint and social awareness. They'll be quite blunt about that. Inappropriate thoughts and feelings as quite transparent people in the path expect a more chairman than more deceitful than more manipulative. And in the not really particularly troubled by the functioning and say, the other people troubled by function and all the psychiatric diagnoses can overlap. So their symptoms run through many, many diagnoses, but just overlap of one symptom doesn't mean to see the same disorder. If you like, sue, the lack of empathy. Autism shouldn't really be taken to mean thing. I don't think about that elephants of Saco Pathy to that Peirce just core cutting symptom that occurs them both conditions, right? And also, I guess the child sometimes perhaps children with. Empathy deficits are diagnosed with autism. It's more comfortable deficit gays. I imagine most if not many individuals to to have a child legal with autism, it'd be by far more preferable to having a child labeled as a psychopath. I was out in the garden. It was a beautiful summer day and I was digging. I think it was digging my kale and Kevin comes out into the backyard. And that point I had a lanyard around my neck that carried all of the keys to everything in our house. At that point, we had locks on every single door in the house except for Kevin's because Kevin was constantly stealing things to sell them. For think at that point, he was doing drugs. He was smoking a lot of pot. I mean, it wasn't anything too serious. He would steal electron IX. He would come into our bedroom at night while we were sleeping, and you know, try to go through our purse or wallet. So that point we had locked every single door. But we had taken away his biker skateboard and we'd locked it in the back shed and. He had already tried to Jimmy the lock, and he came out to try to get the key from around my neck so that he could get into the shed and he's chasing me around the back yard. And at this point he's taller than I am. He weighs more than I do and he's running after me. And he said.

"Wow. School. I wanna ask you a lamentable school as we had to move around. So often I think he went to four or five different lamentably schools. He got kicked out of a private school. The teacher told the headmaster of the school that either he kicked Kevin out or she was going to quit. Actually at one point. Oh, I'd forgotten all about this. But at one point, one of the kids in the classroom actually said, who hates Kevin, raise your hand and all the kids in the classroom racer hand. And that was the point at which we took him out of that school. Did he feel their hate. You know, I don't know. That's a really. That's a really good question. I, I've never asked him. I don't know if he noticed or felted or. If you would even care. What did he do elementary school that. Brought this on. He would choke kids. He would hit kids. He would steal stuff all the time all the time. I mean he would do things like steal people's pencils, right? Something stupid, like a pencil. And so it got to the point where if something was missing, of course, Kevin did it, he didn't always, but it was always there. I go to Kevin lived in middle plus home environment. Oh, yeah. Yeah, very much. So to parents who love him middle class. Educated people. You know, he ate organic food. We listen to NPR. Oh gosh, that's right. We didn't even. We didn't even have television until he was five. So any of those things that you would think of as. Things that would make a child that way. Just. That's not what was going on in.

Does he emerged from childhood trauma or broken brain circuitry or both? This question is vexed researchers for years university of New Mexico. Psychology professor neuroscientist Ken keel is one of them. He became the first scan the largest group of psychopath brains. In the world. He tells ideas producer, Mary O'Connell about the results. This is the final hour of creating conscience, a history of treating the site, the path. It was the first studies ever published on how the psychopathic brain is different than you know nonsense about the brain. We have been able to scan over four thousand inmates in research studies from juveniles two females to forensic psychiatric patients. Mostly males, mostly men. Tell me about this IKEA Pathak brain. Well, so we've learned through these MRI studies that the brains psychopaths have less gray matter. So basically thinking about the brain like a muscle, but they have less gray matter, less muscle tissue in most of the parts of known as the limbic circuitry and the limbic circuitry is the emotional kind of cognitive control or help moderate your behavior circuitry, there's about four to seven percent less gray matter across this band of tissue in those that's behind psychopathy versa. Those score low, the whole limbic system appears to be for whatever reasons, just different. And I like to a muscle, right? So if you have atrophy in a muscle, you're not going to be as strong as Billy lift as much and the same things the brain. If you have less tissue up there, it's not going to be a strong, right? And I suppose there's been a lot of analogies that it's like the psychopath is colorblind, right? This brain different. So you can describe the. Red, they'll never see it. Yeah, it was actually like it was Henry Mosley used term just as are individuals who are tone deaf and cannot tell the differences between different tones and as our people who are colorblind, can't see various colors. There are also individuals who are morally blind who just don't appreciate the the value or the differences in different types of moral situations. And that's what he was referring to moral insanity, and that was the condition. And the term that was used at the time to talk about psychopathy is that it was a Kintu to this just a complete inability to follow any appropriate, social or moral norms and psychopaths can be seen as being completely immoral. Research is focusing more and more on the brain these days. And there's no question that a brain disorder can contribute to psychopathy, but countless studies have also shown a connection between childhood trauma and psychopathy. Loraine Johnson is a clinical and forensic psychologist at the center. For youth and criminal Justice at the university of Strathclyde Glasgow. She thinks applying the word psychopath to children and youth implies that they only have a biological issue and she worries that may take the focus off their early trauma. I'm hugely what he's that's an illegal told, I think, should be used lately. It's Noah Liebknecht diagnosis that should be given by annual and other than someone who's highly trained and able to consider the who'll range of plays intentions and people develop and become who they are. I think as useful construct and for some people as usefully to conceptualize how the function. But I think we add high risk of labeling what example, someone is a psychopath actually. They may have the most harrowingly expediencies have been brutally traumatized. And victimize for most of the life. And because of the impact of that trauma, the shoe signs and symptoms of a pair senility that is linked to psycho police, of example, emotional blunt Tang, or the inability to empathize. These can be the caused by severe trauma to think that an essay to that would prefer to leibel people as psychopaths as opposed to intervening in preventing trauma is really what innings take the field Tobago blamed and potentially dark alley because enough to to assume that someone is just biologically program to behave in that we think is really concerning. I was curious. I wondered in the hundreds of cases of Adelaide scence who've been referred to Lorraine Johnson over twenty five years where there's some who seemed like their brains were just different. Yes, at least two, two people that I am certainly experiences Fadi eighty. And I thought the psycho Pathy flea Mark was was useful to conceptualize them. Now Lorraine, did you have a physiological reaction to them? And I did, I suppose, vani baited year a for me to really think very much, you know, you're trained and you'd expedients, but I think I've said they fail fearful. It was a freight fail that you know that I was fairly cautious and obey that is very vague unusual. I don't. I don't really take and to have that kind of reaction. Now, was this a case of the hair in the back of your next adding up. Yeah, really think that is a something in humans, animals, you know, there's instinct and I think that is something that a b. depend upon when we are in a situation, we will maybe rescue. We were confused by or. Perplexed their sales, what the dynamic is. You, you wouldn't use the word evil to describe them. No, I I think the who these name involved in this professions to promote it comes and entail people. So we didn't want to use negative language, but there is something a. That pulled nece. That is a real absence of connection, social connection and absence of emotion that I think colloquially in an elite perspective might be import. You may describe imagine evil to be, but you know, video cautious and using that what my sale. Well, it would be very difficult. Obviously, these two boys are more like needles in a haystack. Right? And that you wouldn't want to over-focus on them right. Absolutely. Steinle never do the job if it was just that process of diagnostic criteria that for had someone written off for the day of the life, I think that holy Rome. So I think it's in shooting that we use all of our knowledge to because by hail ping offenders, we religious the number of victims society benefits from that as well. We do know that trauma can change the brain. It can damage it. So therapy can attempt to tackle the trauma. However, Lorraine Johnson's point is okay, then if the root causes biological, what then what's the treatment, especially protein ages. certainly,

"The idea that children or adults are born that way gets everyone off the hook. That's what forensic psychologist. Dr. Jeffrey small believes if it's biology, treatment won't work as there's nothing to be done and the more lurid the crime, the more sensational it can become. That's what crime writer, Eric ambler explored in some of his work. It's a two way street in our culture, the audience and the villain. Dr Jeffrey small and provides an example from anglers own life, a very well known crime in England that occurred. I believe in nineteen twenty four where young man named Patrick Mayon who of all things was employed as a soda fountain salesman at the time when he killed and dismembered his mistress. And it was a much publicized case inning. England and ambler was growing up there at the time in ambler tells the story of going to the scene of the crime because in his fifteen year olds way, he thought that there was something useful for him to be discovered in getting that close to the scene of where this extrordinary infamous acted taken place. And he talked about the shock that he experienced when got there to see the huge gaggle of curiosity seekers, who were rummaging after bits of side, as I recall and some some kind of souvenir and ambler said, you know, I wondered what, what is that about? And is, is this sort of sheen of civility that people wear that we see in one another every day, kind of velvet exterior that covers something much more primitive that would suggest that there is more overlap than we would like to admit between us and the people who would commit crimes like Patrick man's and those anecdotes. Raise fascinating for me anyway. Questions about what it is those people are after when they're collecting souvenirs like that. That was then the nineteen twenties. But this is now Google searches for the word psychopath have mushroomed since the start of the new century, I asked Lorraine Johnson, what gifts? Well. That's quite concerning. I think came the popularity of the constant is portrayed in movies or media is a neat. We organizing the good and bad in society, and it will help people. I think, race deceive, you know, a psychopath so there for your good yada psychopath. Who there for your bats, you know, used to say incision life stories used an unhelpful. We, I think came that was some big Autry Celebi in using it under psychopath to be successful you. So there's all these different angles that promotes the use of Tam. And I think it's actually because people don't really understand the pathology behind that had been so many Google searches on trauma attachment because that would be a much more productive Idia to look. And I suppose the most banal example is you see this all the time how to spot a psychopath or. Or take the psychopath test? Yes. Are you a psychopath. I just find that a polling for me. For example, if I was comfortable using the Tatum before I do that, I would conduct many mayors of interviewing, but the person themselves maybe then to lots of people who knew them to lick older background records, then I would probably engage in a discussion with peer just to make sure I wasn't any bias or messing nothing before. I would say that that was the label that was the based fit. So for me, the notion that you can with the Tatum question identified for the of psychopathic traits or no, is just ludicrous and dangerous. He do. It's really interesting. Mary I was I was playing some app on my tablet last night and this and comes across for this thing called. I think it's killer hunter, and it's a service where you sign up thirty bucks a month, and you get to quote unquote hunt, serial killers. So you get photographs, you get letters and and timelines and whatever, and you're supposed to solve the mystery. And in the ad they show this little boy cutting apart teddy bear dissecting. I think he's like humming happily or something, and I'm thinking, okay, all these people will pay thirty dollars a month to pretend to hunt a serial killer, but we can't get funding for treatment for these kids before they turn out like that fuel and fodder for our fantasies. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I'm, I'm actually tearing up as we're talking about that. It's it's. It is so heartbreaking because we are so entertained by the psychopath and we don't. I almost wonder if we don't want to cure them. They. Yeah. I mean, I, that's the only thing I can think of. Right.
