"Hi Matteo. Thank you for having me. It's so nice to have you here. Yes Fun. In reading fierce heart this memoir book. And listening to your teachings. It seems that quite young age you understood the primary role that mind has to play in emotional wellbeing. In, your childhood life, it seems as though it was very, very difficult growing up in the inner city life of poverty and racism, and there were some abandoned men and. And in fact, a lot of violence around you and so my question is, when was it that you began to look inward Lee for your strength rather than blaming the outside world? That's a really, really good question because I think as a child when I was growing up, I did get very confused and I was very interested because the adults around me their behavior and they were suffering so much. So this is very I guess empathetic child. So I could feel what was happening around me I could see the suffering and so that did make. Me Inquire what is causing this and I think I read in the book at just age five years old I turned to my older sister and said, wow, this is gonna be really hard. It's going to be a hard life because I could just see it. You know there wasn't a lot of wisdom we were poor. We were black I was like, okay here we go. There there's you know this is going to be you know a of hill-climb here And I think I just I. Just stayed really interested and as I got older I started to study psychology. Young teenager I got very interested in self-help bugs and Wayne Dyer I was reading in the fifth grade. I read one of his books. How did you come into? Wayne dyers book and were you living in? Compton at the time now we were actually living in a little apartment. We were up in northern California. We had migrated up we back and forth between southern and northern. California and we're in northern California and my mother was depressed and went to the librarian went to the self help section, and of course all back. Then there was Louis. Wayne Tire. And Louis Hayes so I think it was his book you'll believe it when you you'll see it when you believe it. And I remember reading that and I remember saying, yes or something with my mind I knew it and he affirms But I wasn't I. Didn't have the support to go deeper. Obviously I was ten and so but I remember men something like, yes there's something going off my thinking and the people around me, their thoughts it's making them suffer and it's leading to this behavior and addiction, and so the night just continued he knows I got older and older until I really started. Practicing Meditation like Eighteen Nineteen and when when was that that I do you remember the first time you tried meditation. We'll the very first time was when I read. Wayne dyers book and I went in there. Then in there I I the funny thing is I, told my mother was six anyone to go to school. So I played like I was sick to stayed home. and. Had nothing to do at that time our TV was broken and we didn't have money to fix it, and so there was a stack of books that was it and that's let and I tried to practice I. Remember I tried to count down from ten to zero and I couldn't do it. Of course thought came you know I was noticing that and going Oh. Side gave up for that time being but I got really interested a later when I was a part of this church called Gubbay pay here in southern Colorado Beckwith Beckwith who I adore and I've who's been you know great supporter of mine endorsed my book and I started to practice more, and then that led me into different traditional. Hindu. Tradition with Parma's Uganda. Realization Fellowship Centralisation down the street here in Carlsbad. I really got into practice there but then not led me into of the Dharma and I. I long retreat was a day retreat where I learned the pasta meditation, which Cornfield Pasta Meditation Sometimes, a translation is sort of insight meditation insight meditation. What can I before we get there? Can You? Can you describe what led you to the to to that to go on at ten day retreat like why would? Is. Not. Every day that somebody just like is. Packed up and goes to a ten day retreat. So what led you to that we looking for something Well I think when I had joined the self realization fellowship, I was really interested in meditation. I'd read a book somebody left a book on my table, and in this apartment I was living in an Oakland and I opened it and it just. A whole world opened. It was all about meditation. And I realized then that I wanted to live a spiritual life, it was like it was like death rebirth moment and was like goodbye to this. Hello to this. Of course, I want to spiritually based life in years how I do it By circumstances around you where they conducive to that spiritual life. Now I mean, what were you doing? It's crazy town now selling timeshare living with this crazy guy I'm sure. Yeah. Selling timeshares that was smoking weed I. Wasn't you know I had bills. I wasn't responsible everything was you know we're at that time I moved in with him in East Oakland it was just it wasn't good and I got very depressed and self realization fellowship was beautiful. But they didn't have any technique. They just go to these three hour meditation kind of kind of method to apply. Exactly. They would just say love God and I would say, okay, I'm trying but three hours later I didn't know it didn't feel like I was getting where I needed to go. Right? It was like the self realization happening right thought about my issues for three hours. I. Didn't know how to eventually if I sat long enough. Out of sheer to giving up my mind got quiet but I needed I felt as if I needed a teacher, there was an living teacher was just the disciples in the programs that they had it in. You know. So I started praying for a living teacher I need help my brain. Oh, very much I prayed and prayed and prayed, and then sure enough I heard about this ten day retreat in the desert and they said they you. Instructions and there's teachers there and you can talk to them and they're alive. You know it's not just books.

Finding Your Balance
"Good Morning. We love and I'm here in Crystal Lake Illinois. And wanted to spend a little time with you. Hope Everyone's fine. And Hope you're. Dealing with all the different new things coming up in your life like being students online or live for a combination of the two. Or going back to work or continuing to stay home and work from home. Or looking for a job or Trying to to decide what's the next course you want to take or thing you want to learn online. We have lots of things going on these days and I hope you're finding a way to be. Peaceful with that and have Have some dispassionate equanimity could time to work on our equanimity, right? That's the quality of balance. and. Taking a step back and being able to see things. Without. So much of our self involvement being able to be a little bit dispassionate. Find Balance and everything. So I always like to think of it as back away beck away from Mecca way not not out of indifference at all but out of. That Maybe we sometimes can be too aggressively putting ourselves in the middle of a situation. Really we are more of A. We can be more of a bystander and be more valuable to people in the situation. and. You know that feeling when you when you realize oh I, wish I just kept my mouth shut and not. Made that comment on facebook or not said something that you know that that made the situation not better but probably just. kind of hit the hit something that just immediately. Created. Created. A. A little minor explosion and a conversation or relationship. And sometimes that's because we we aren't able to become have that equanimity at work. You know there's a little. There's a little bit too much of our ego in a situation. So we just need to say something that maybe probably would be better if we didn't say it. I know that's one way I look at equanimity. Does back away? Think about the situation think about it a little bit more. find her own balance with an it without getting carried away by the emotion of the moment. And we can work with equanimity in so many situations and I think it's a beautiful quality for us to develop right now. Because we have a lot of opportunities before we we feel like. We are free from the effects of the pandemic. That's going to be a long time before free from the economic effects and the psychological effects and the physical effects. The way it's changed our landscape just physically the people we've lost. Maybe the people who were recovering from covid nineteen and the the. The. The long lasting effects that they might be having to deal with and how it affects our society in the long run. So develop equanimity along with compassion and loving kindness and. I am so which is no harm. So, we can have our hands full just with. seeing how we can those are the best ways we can be people in this world is to work on those qualities work on a deeper understanding of yourself. And then that's what it all comes back to because we have to know. What our little triggers are we have to know. We have to know about ourself. and. Then we can be more effective in a more Compassionate person for the rest of the world. So. Let me start with my wish. And I think that's good guidance I hope everyone's memorized it. Okay. He working on it if you haven't because it can be there for you when you need it. Or. The Saint. Francis prayer. May I become at all times both now and forever. A protector for those without protection. A guy for those who have lost their way. A ship for those with an ocean to cross. A. Sanctuary for those endanger. A lamp for those without light. A place of refuge for those who like shelter and a servant to all in need. By by means of this meritorious deed, May I never join with the unwise only the wise until the time I attain the Bonna.

Living In A Groundhog Day
"Good morning everybody. It's Iowa Mala and it's Thursday morning July thirtieth. Look. It's low cooler today here. So maybe it's cooling off. Where you are to hope your weather we having nice weather as we enter the end of the summer. Wow I was just thinking. Just a few minutes ago at one of my favorite movies is groundhog day and if you haven't watched the movie. What's the movie because I realized thinking about it We're living in a kind of groundhog. Day. And our temple is in Woodstock. Illinois and that's where the groundhog day movie was made. And so it there's a there's a great affection for Bill Murray and for the making of the movie and Woodstock Has A. GROUNDHOG's Day big festive weekend festival every year. So It's meaningful but. Before I had ever seen it. be a friend of mine. told me. It's the most Buddhist movie I've ever seen in. This is longtime ago when the movie was new. And I had to watch it two times to to get it. I think that was maybe even before I was a Buddhist or. had read anything or I don't know where my mind was when I first saw it. But It's one of those movies I can watch over and over again there are so many beautiful lessons in it and it's so funny and enjoyable it. It's a perfect pandemic movie. So if you I know I know I think now it's even on Netflix's I was looking for about a year ago. To let people know where they could find it and I couldn't find it anywhere on any kind of streaming media. Uh someone just sent a message Glenn Powers He sets my dad was an extra in groundhog day. That's great. So it's part of your family. Lower that's good. People talked about a bill. Murray would F- Baseball Games? For. The. People. And each state and he stayed in Woodstock, stock while the movie was being made. Just, this past year he did commercials in Woodstock that I just accidentally with a few other friends. We were having lunch on the square after. Right after temple on Saturday and. Bill. was shooting commercials so we got to watch him. And just kind of re live and they're the best they were I. Think they were given the best commercial. Honors for the. Super Bowl. You can see the jeep commercials. If you go on Youtube you can see they're just wonderful delightful commercials. So anyway, those little sight stories, but groundhog day is so similar to what we're living through. Now every we can wake up and we don't even know what day of the week it is. And it just keeps going. So I think that was that's what surprised all of us is. What a ride the suspend. An and it still is we don't see really any signs of things. Getting better right now. So if you watch that movie I, it will inspire you. Because, well, you'll see you'll get it when you watch it but That's we you know we all have bumps in the road of adjusting and dealing with a situation that throws us off balance but I'm hoping that most of you have found a reason. To wake up every day and have something interesting you WanNa do or something that you're that you're working on that you never had time to do before or you're getting little projects don you never had time to do before? that. You're taking zoom classes or you're reading or tuning into special classes on you to. We can use. Streaming media and things like. Youtube and things like. Facebook I'm recording this on facebook. We can use all of this stuff that. That before being I was I wanted to be off facebook I had no use for it. Before the pandemic and now I find that it's it's just a beautiful. Communication vehicle so. And I can I can do it. So it's very low tech so That's a good thing too. But. We can discover the good things about maybe technology that we that we didn't feel very good about before. We can. We can stay connected with people, which is now we really understand how important it is. And, we can find out about what's going on all over the world. And we don't have to stay We don't have to stay in the dark about what's really happening. We can investigate things and find out what's going on. So let this be your. Bill Murray Groundhog Day experience, and when you see the movie, If you haven't seen it, you must see it and when you do see at your your understand. and. I think it'll make every day a little bit more bright for you. So. There's so much. We can all be learning and we can be learning to understand just. Almost all of the Buddhist teachings. This is perfect. This is a perfect retreat for us a perfect workshop. And I know a lot of you don't feel like it's a retreat because you're still working and you're still having to deal with things that are scary and frightening and. You're worried about your kids and what we're going do about school and we're all worried about so many things but. I don't want to minimize any of that. But at the same time, this is a time for us to look look inside of us. Find the joy of helping other people find the joy of finding of really understanding. Some of the things that are important to us and the people who are important to us and understanding ourselves. So use it to be. Something that you can look back on and think. I I got a lot of good out of it

"Tip comes from Dennis Champagne as the president of Lotus Communications. Dennis has generated millions of dollars for his clients based on his own prospecting efforts, and the also trains and coaches others to gain access to the C. Suite here he is hello. Everyone today I'm going to throw you a challenge to make sure you can evaluate yourself and rate yourself on the value of your personal services. In the workplace whether it'd be for yourself or as an employee. In the early Thirties a book was written by Napoleon Hill, called, think and grow rich of which I've. Read Multiple Times. Very touching book and in that book. He studied the ultra successful. And you had a chapter in there where he talked about how to measure how to evaluate and how to benchmark yourself in terms of the value of your marketing or personal marketing services. And he established it. Would an acronym called Q. S? Obviously you follow be no of the to cues. But I'm sure you don't know about the S. The Q. is the quantity of work that you do the amount of involvement that the hours you put out the effort to deploy the really serve and provide all of the efforts and the work that needs to be done. To. Bring success. The. Quality of the work is the intelligence with which you do execute. The thinking behind. The Q. Component the intellectual component thanking the writing well. The writing reading well, speaking well. The last one is actually what makes or breaks every single one of those people. As successful or unsuccessful. The S is the one that everybody wants. And everybody benchmarked to and evaluates you, and that is called the spirit, the spirit with which you render a service to someone. Is the determining factor. In almost every single circumstance. Of An engagement in business. Your spirit your determination. Your willingness. Your Passion, your. Emotional involvement. Selling is an emotion is a transference of feeling. And most people will tell you that they succeeded because they wanted more than the other in sports. The same in sales the same, so my message to you is today. Although albeit important, the quality and quantity is considered. Nurture and Feed your spirit of the things that you're going to do and a company are going to represent and the products or services that you're going to provide. As a solution for some of your clients, so my message to you again I'll repeat is nurture your spirit. Read. Surround yourself with people and nurture every day a spirit of appreciation for what you do because ultimately that's all you're going to be benchmarked

"Good Morning Siwa Friday. Very rainy outside here. Kind of Thundery, light. Thunder but a lot of Noah lot of. A lot of funder I don't see much lightning. so hope your superior. You're having either needed. Rain or You're feeling cozy like it's a day, you can spend inside and you. You're appreciating that you're you're. You may be totally different weather so a different situation altogether. It feels it feels a little bit nicest morning just because. I woke up to a head. Just enough time to feed my squirrels and chipmunks and birds outside came back in and. Before I knew it. It was raining, so it doesn't seem to bother them at all. Oh, that's good. So. Let's start out the day. With our my wish. Let's do that together, so we can. If you have memorized at yet, you'll be back back in the saddle with and remember this. My wish is part of the US from shanty. Daiwa an eighth century Buddhist monk in India. In. This part of heart of writing from Shanty David too too small. Extract and I think it fits beautifully for the Times. We're living in right now. It's it seems always appropriate who we think about. What we want the compassion we feel towards the world. But, this is specially now. I think it just is heightened. And when I opened a book this morning, the first thing just fell out of the book was one of the blessing cards that That I was able to put together with a committee at blue, Lotus Temple and it was originally to calf blessing carts to give to the detained immigrants at the county jail, and now we have them in French and Spanish and England English and we haven't been able to. All the cards were ready and French and Spanish lovely little packs to sell the temple to support the printing. The our committee was doing at the temple. We never got to put them up because we closed. Was Right as a pandemic started, but we have the English ones there and. They are. When I volunteered at the jail now we can't go to jail, but when we were going to the jail. the Catholics always had the beautiful blessing cards, prayer cards, and I've never been a Catholic I've been a lot of other things, but never almost, but never a Catholic and I always have the little prayer cards, and so the committee at Blue Lotus and I put together a set. With all of the seven wishes and blessed in the the. The. The blessings, the prayers for the people who need protection and our compassion. With. We made a separate card for each line of the my wish, and then we found a picture that we thought would be something. Someone could look at it in their cell, and have a feeling for that line or a feeling of the outdoors something that they were unable to to have and some color and some light in their room are there? They're bit by their bed. And they were very popular at the jails they were. We ran out of we had thousands and thousands of the cards and the English ones were picked up very quickly by volunteers, and then we printed the Spanish ones, and we had just distributed some of those and then French But they haven't. They're sitting. Most of them are in my closet and summer already packaged in the Little Organza bags that we put seven of them to match all the lines in a little package that we were wanting to sell at the temple to raise money to print more of the cards, but hid has my wish on the back of the cards has my wish, and so they're wonderful to hand out to people, and they fit purpose perfectly in the in a wallet or pocket. And our printer suggested this size because. It's a typical size for a prayer card she. Does. She said this is something. Someone can take with them everywhere. They go and we know that when the detained immigrants are. Sent back to countries. Were they either going back home where they have so much to remember? About the time that they've they've spent in detained in detainment. So many of them are sent back to countries where they might never have lived or were. They don't no longer have family. But to have something like this in their pocket or in their wallet that just gives them a can give them a sense that there are people who care. And that there is there is slight in the world, and there are people who who are trying to do the best they can do. And, so it's so wonderful to have this. Just drop drop in my lap morning. And that's the same. My wish that we're learning and reading together now every morning. So let's start with that. And then we'll talk a little bit, and we'll end the meditation this warning with the same the same I wish. May I become at all times, both now and forever a protector for those without protection, a guide for those who've lost their way. I shook for those with the notion to cross a sanctuary for those endanger. A land for those without light, a place of refuge, for those who lack shelter and a servant to all in the. By means of this meritorious deed may I never join with the unwise only the wise until the time I attain the Bonna. Beautiful. And some of US might be thinking. We didn't have to look very far during this pandemic to. To be a servant to all in need, because for many of you, you had your family's right there at home and you could see when they were needing something. Are you could see your? Friends who you were just having? A sporadic contact with, but you could see what their needs were. You could see what they were going through and You could be. You could be there for them. And hopefully that's that's how you experienced it to. That it was a wonderful time for you than it is and has been. A really powerful time for you to practice compassion. And understanding, and hopefully every day has been a challenge for your practice and one. That may be some days. You felt like you did a great job other days, not so sure. But every day you could start over again. and not carry any remorse or guilt about the day before, but every day we can start over. And remember that about everything, we're going through right now whatever you've been through. We can't drag things around with us that we aren't feeling good about or that. We Have A. Difficult emotions over, or we have anger around or sadness around. It's really important for us to get that cleared away. And that we deal with it. And then let it go, so we can start. We can start fresh. And and I see that in my own life. I had I did something if? Several weeks ago, that that in four afterthought really thought I shouldn't have done that I.
Best Meditation Practices
"Good Morning. It's Tuesday morning June twenty third. And, I'm be Coney Huila from Blue Lotus in crystal lake. Well. I live in crystal, Lake Illinois, and the temple is in Woodstock Illinois. Out Today is Beautiful Day here. It's been a little stormy. How is how is your place? How are you this morning? How's your mind? Getting enough movement. Enough exercise. I don't think I am I have to work on that harder. Too much sitting at the computer. So today. I wanted to start with a question someone had sent. Asking if which is best one thirty minutes sitting day for your meditation practice. Or doing six. Five minute short meditations during the day. And that's a that's A. It's a good question. It's interesting. I think for some people. When they begin, the five minutes might be all. They feel they they can handle. All, they feel they can sit still for. They may not see. They may not be really committed to. The practice and just trying it out so if that's the case. I'd say try the five minutes as often as you can during the day and see how you feel. But. In terms of The real benefits of meditation I think working towards that thirty minute. Time every day is better for us because we are really then able to begin developing the stillness. The saw Mata the the tranquility our bodies. And the slowing down. And allowing us to then access. The the deeper benefits of meditation. And in the long run that's what will be. That's what will be. really wanting more and more of. But I don't think the five minutes if you can scatter those through your day. And give them a good five minutes. I think that's necessarily bad for everyone I I think. There are a lot of people who might start that way. and. If you're doing that, would wholeheartedly, you'll find pretty soon that you want to sit longer than five minutes because you might just be relaxing. And Ready to sit. When the five minutes is up. But if you've if you've committed your schedule to only having five minutes then. Your body's going to be ready to get up even if you're kind of longing to stay. So if you can only do five minutes do that and do as the. Person asking the question mentioned Stu. It may be six times a day. You can do that at work if you took a five minute break every couple of hours and you were able to sit somewhere. But really make your goal to be the thirty minutes because I think that's where the real benefits from our practice will show up in our lives, and the practice practice for herself of moving beyond just the. Surface, but really down into see. What's going on with us in accessing? Accessing deeper. Deeper parts of us. Okay. But that's a great question. What are we doing in the world? He stays at so up in the air. Right into. There's so many questions. I have a an upcoming retreat I'm really feeling. I have really mixed messages about that and. Having have to make a decision today doing it or not, and this one I'm one of the leaders for so it makes a big. It's a big. It's a big decision. And I, know individuals make their own decision about going, but I realized that this is what we're being faced with more and more as things open up. But not very well being opened up. We're in stage four now in the in this part of Illinois. So. We're we have more access to places that were still being. Really encouraged where mask into social distance and we, we see the statistics at all over the world. The numbers are rising again. And we have to make lots of decisions and. Hopefully make the right decision, so that may be a more conservative decision than we'd like to make sometimes. we may not be. There may not be a heavy weight of the majority behind us, but remember we have to. Follow the path. That were laying out for ourselves. We have to be true to what we. Honestly, see going on in the world. And evaluating that. And once in a while. Someone will remind me that you know I'm in that. I'm thinking about other people and then someone. Usually. My daughter will remind me that I'm in I'm old I'm in the high risk area. I'm one of the. Just because of my age. And then they're probably some you know. Some other things that are combined with the age, but just my age puts me into that category of I need to be really
Many Day Camps Are Choosing To Reopen, But Should Your Child Attend?
"Stays the day if all goes as planned we're gonna sneak into the opposite him and get the Intel we what's gonna happen to summer camp this is a video from camp would you walk in in Nashville Tennessee in it camp director Jeff marriage explains how things are gonna change now we sanitize we looking at our the other thing is going to be super but the most important thing here is that camp which you walk in is going to open marriage told me they are following state local guidance taking all necessary precautions and moving ahead that is not the case everywhere around the country many camps have decided to close all together and summer just in a holding pattern as they count covert cases in their state and try to figure out how to keep kids safe they're also pushing up against a lot of demand from families because we should just point out here we're not talking about sleepaway camps that are more like a week long vacation these are day camps that double as critical childcare for working parents I talked with Dr Zeke Emanuel about this he's a bioethicist and vice provost at the university of Pennsylvania in a recent op ed for the Atlantic Dr Emmanuel said many working parents can't get back to full productivity without camp and kids desperately need a break we separated children from their peers we restricted their activities out of doors and we're about to face summer with the kids totally out of school isolated from their friends this is not a good recipe for children we've also upset the parents live in terms of me being able to focus on work and I think having some distance during the day reestablishes a good relationship with people are you saying that the harm being done to them because of social distancing and isolation outweighs the risks of contracting the virus I think that there is a big harm almost all the data talks about the importance of socialization interacting with other kids negotiating playing setting rules those are important things for child development on the risk side transmission among kids is relatively low we know that there are harms are lower than adults they're not zero and I don't want anyone to say oh there's no problem with kids there are problems with kids but they're relatively low certainly relative to compare to other risks that kids out of unintentional injury and I think given that relative lotus it's worth taking some of the risks for some children for the benefits for tens of millions of children so many Americans have made real sacrifices to limit their exposure to other people over the last few months the sending your kid to summer camp though would exponentially increase a family's exposure to the virus would yes it is an increase I don't think it's exponential I think it's inevitable children are going to get covert nineteen if we open summer camp inevitable for some parents they will perceive the rest to be too high but for the vast majority the risks are acceptable given the other respect children's live with remember chill a child's life is not risk free and it shouldn't be risk free so I think that's about a global pandemic and protect your kids from a virus is different than you know dying in a car accident really I'm not sure falling out of a canoe or something that would transpire at summer camp yeah falling out of a canoe learning to cooperate around wearing face masks washing hands learning to deal with adversity is very important for children what kind of guidance have camps are state officials had from the federal government about how they should be weighing these decisions yeah disappointing is the answer to that I think that the guidance coming out of the CDC has been less than great it also would help if we had much more available and easy to use testing in this country do you think that's a prerequisite for camps to be able to test each and every camper before the start of the day I would say that it would be ideal and it would be very good I don't think in and of itself it's a go no go element it's not easy I didn't say it was easy and I think an article we say there are logistical and financial considerations but this is a high priority for the country as a whole to do this for our children who need structure in their summertime doctors you can manually appreciate your time thank you thank you Rachel but in the end it really is all up to parents because let's say the camp you send your kids to in the summer is going to open well then what then it's on you to the side of the benefit outweighs the potential

Gov. Newsom declares state of emergency for Los Angeles County
"Governor Gavin Newsom has declared a state of emergency for the city and county of Los Angeles this comes after a couple of days of at times violent protests over police brutality and the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis with that declaration Newsome approved a request from LA officials to deploy one thousand National Guard troops LA mayor Eric Garcetti says the groups of people set on committing vandalism and looting businesses have hijacked the legitimate protest over Floyd's death and he vowed a firm response we are going to continue working every minute and every hour to restore peace to the city until it is there Garcetti ordered a rare curfew throughout the city between eight last night and five thirty this morning that was after more than a dozen police cars were burned and stores were looted during yesterday's big protest in the Fairfax district one protester in downtown LA told KABC that images of Floyd's death triggered rage that is built up over decades as black people suffered abuse at the hands of police the damage there are you know why because this is how we feel every day walking down the street we don't get to see the beautiful buildings that everybody else gets to see we get to feel like we don't belong there we get to feel like trash we feel like garbage we get to feel like we can't come here lotus also turned violent yesterday in Beverly hills where at least one store was looted there was no repeat though the massive damage and looting that occurred in downtown Los Angeles Friday night which led to more than five hundred
Clashes continue for 5th night as anger boils over in dozens of cities across the US
"In dozens of cities yesterday large mostly peaceful demonstrations devolved into chaos in Nashville Miami Seattle and Salt Lake City Pittsburgh Phoenix New York and frankly too many other places to name protesters expressed their rage at the death of George Floyd police brutality and racism there were violent confrontations with police and police crackdown also violently they're also mass arrests and injuries among demonstrators journalists and police at least a dozen major cities declared curfews others called on the National Guard which has been historically used in response to major civil unrest there were scenes of National Guard marching through some residential neighborhoods ordering people to stay inside we go now to Los Angeles where members of the National Guard were also deployed overnight and a curfew was put in place as a state of emergency was declared NPR's Nathan rott is in a Laney joins us now Nate walk us through what happened yesterday so there is a massive peaceful protesters started around noon yesterday was in the Fairfax district in west LA which is kind of a trendy neighborhood with high end retail in a big outdoor mall and people were protesting against police violence as they are all over the country they were memorializing George Floyd the black man who died after being pinned to the ground by Minneapolis police officers and you know by all accounts it was peaceful respectful until a little later in the afternoon when we started seeing reports of police cars being set on fire and just a total breakdown of the situation this often happens a protest right when things shift as things go into the night do we know what happened yeah that's the obviously that was a little surprising loop usually these like shift to happen and I distorted broad daylight mid afternoon which is I think very concerning to a lot of city officials so you know on social media people are blaming the police for escalating tensions for responding with tear gas in this sort of militarized riot gear that has become so comically become a place around the country city officials have so far blame bad eggs in the crowd for setting things off and that's something we've been hearing in a lot of places that it's a small group of people who are agitating the situations of course that's now been politicized even with the U. S. Attorney General blaming anarchists and leftists without you know providing any proof of that but it's really hard to say what makes the situation situation shift tensions are obviously very high so it doesn't take much to spark something now doesn't we saw videos of looting and fires in many cities around the country last night it was also the case another right yeah number of retail stores in that Fairfax area were broken into goods were stolen some were set on fire I know firefighters are dealing with those fires throughout the night that prompted Ellie's mayor Eric Garcetti to announce a city wide curfew which cut a lot of people off guard because he announced an hour before it went into effect but here he is explaining why they did it and alluding to a violent protests in nineteen ninety two for following Rodney king we've seen this before in Los Angeles when the violence escalate no one wins and so everybody has to be responsible for owning this moment what do you wear a badge or whether you hold a sign I'm asking all of Los Angeles to take a deep breath and a step back for a moment it doesn't seem like the curfew worked briefly yeah the crowd started to sent that out even before the curfew started I know in other parts of the state Sacramento San Diego other large can confrontations between crowds and police I think you know what it's going to be interesting to see what happens over the next couple of days that's NPR's Nate rott in LA thank you so much yeah I think you look so we've been hearing how the nation is pulsing with anger with demands for racial justice some of that anger has translated into literal fire and for some small business owners that means there is stab each man is a casualty of the unrest and partially the Fadhel followed one of Minneapolis family and sent the story on the south side of Minneapolis the feeling and her family walk up to the door of what was my Mississippi is kitchen volunteer neighborhood walks out sorry the

"So now just nurture yourself to let let you be done with that for this present time. Don't let it hang around with you. Sometimes we call this coming back to neutral raking to say coming back to nurturing yourself and letting the letting letting that the power of that difficulty emotion. You know now now. We're going to stop working with it so you WANNA come back to a safe place and your body. And that's when we take care of ourselves so we send Meta. We send loving. Kindness and friendliness to ourselves may be well. May I feel safe? May I realize I can deal with these difficulty motions? I am strong. I can be fearless and then because it were Brag. That's met a practice. We definitely now need to send it out when we can. We can feel okay. We have enough for ourself. We can send some out and then we can begin to radiate an. We'd it just continues. We never run out and we are never unable to send it out so that we can radiate that feeling of goodwill out out. Send it out to all your loved ones. Send it out to your animal. Friends are big supporters. Send it out to strangers to enemies to the challenging loved ones in your life. Remember that Meta is infinite so once we begin to send it radiated out or radiating out it just becomes who we are and it keeps going and going and going and when it's infant that means we also can't say. I wanted to go to her but not to him. I wanted to go to those people in that. These people we. We don't have that control when we really understand what we're doing we can't pick and choose who we begin to send compassion to and. Meta too and that's wonderful isn't it? We'd all be tempted to to use to use that superpower for evil instead of for good so That's part of being infant. And we're not picking and choosing who we who we send it to and we can't and we can't pick and choose. What their responses so he never have any attachment to a radiating out those qualities like Metha- and compassion and sympathetic joy for others and equanimity. So that's that's enough for today.

Encourage you to get the help you need but to never have to give up meditation and it can be come along with any professional help you need. Your Meditation will only make everything better so not not suggesting. You quit meditating while you take care of something just know that We have to trust science. We have to trust what we know about the brain. We have to know that there are things that are available for us to use and work with and that's part of what we can become aware of as we practice when things are difficult for us. we need to get help and so never be afraid to get help.

What Are The World's Biggest, Baddest Jigsaw Puzzles?
"Even before. It became a popular way to while away the hours days and weeks during isolation putting together. Jigsaw Puzzles was a favourite family activity. But did you know that? Jigsaw Puzzles have their origin in education. Sir John Spills Berry an English engraver and map maker in the mid. Seventeen hundred is credited with creating the first jigsaw puzzle in seventeen seventy six by attaching a map of the world to a piece of wood then cutting the country's out teachers used the maps to teach geography to their students and a recreational activity was born spills berry would hardly recognize his creation today in the early part of the twentieth century. Jigsaw Puzzles were used as marketing tools often given away or sold for mere pennies today companies. Still use puzzles for creative marketing. Take Kodak for instance. It's selling what it. Claims is the quote world largest jigsaw puzzle. We HAVE TO ADMIT. This thing is pretty huge. The fifty one thousand three hundred piece puzzle features twenty-seven injuries from around the world and when completed measures twenty eight point five feet by six point. Two five feet. That's eight point six meters by one point nine meters and this beast costs more than four hundred dollars but all due respect to the Kodak Jigsaw puzzle. The world's largest jigsaw puzzle by surface area. According to Guinness World Records was put together in Dubai in July of twenty eighteen. The puzzle was an honor of the year of Ziyad a year long tribute to the founding father of the United Arab Emirates. The late Shahid there are more than twelve thousand pieces in the puzzle which was an image of Zayed the official record size measured sixty five thousand nine hundred and five point one seven square feet which is six thousand one hundred twenty two point six eight square meters putting together. Jigsaw puzzles is a Greek group activity but one thousand six hundred students of the University of Economics Ad Hoc Human City in Vietnam took it to the next level. When they completed the jigsaw puzzle with the most pieces on record five hundred fifty one thousand two hundred and thirty two to be exact when it was finished the puzzle measured just over. Forty eight by seventy six feet about fourteen by twenty three meters. It took the students seventeen hours to create the massive puzzle which featured a lotus flower with six petals. But what about the hardest jigsaw puzzle? Ever it contains only nine pieces and it's called the puzzle nine it was designed by Asaka. It includes a small board. The nine pieces include right angles and curved edges. That fit together in several combinations. Think Tetris but way harder. The challenge is getting the last piece to fit. It's nearly impossible to fit all the pieces on the board. It took Chris Ramsey a magician video creator and master puzzle or two hours nine minutes to solve the ice nine and by his own description. He was completely exhausted. By the end of the experience. You Sokha created another equally. Difficult puzzle called the Jigsaw Puzzle. Twenty nine the challenge here is to fit twenty nine pieces into a five by five inch. That's twelve by twelve centimeter trae. It comes with five corner pieces. Just let that sink in. Then there's the largest hand cut wooden jigsaw puzzle Guinness record held by Dave Edmunds England. Who created a forty thousand seven hundred sixty three piece puzzle celebrating the Queen's Diamond Jubilee the puzzle which featured thirty-three Images of Jubilee celebrations was twenty by eight feet? That's six by two and a half meters. When completed though it collapsed soon after Evans completed it took him and force. More than sixteen days to rebuild the puzzle and move at Sandringham where it went on display and was confirmed as the Guinness World record holder. We spoke by email with Caitlin vesper records manager with Guinness World Records North America. She said one of the main criteria for all Guinness World Records titles is that they must be breakable. Every record titled S- monitored is open to being challenged which allows for all kinds of record breaking opportunities all over the world. The Guinness record for most Jigsaw puzzle pieces tattooed on the human body belongs to the aptly named enigma. Sometimes known as Paul Laurence. Who'S A sideshow performer? Actor musician originally from Seattle in two thousand eleven enigmas set the record for having two thousand one hundred twenty three puzzle pieces tattooed on his body from head to toe in no word on whether anyone comes close to second but many puzzle records are held by companies such as the record for the largest spherical jigsaw puzzle. It measured fifteen point seven feet. That's four point. Seven seven meters in circumference and it was made by unit industrial limited in Hong Kong and featured scene from Winnie the Pooh vesper said brands and businesses. Come to US looking to harness the power of record-breaking to commemorate anniversaries and celebrations or to highlight the launch of a new product. Whole communities can come together to attempt to record to a like in March of two thousand nineteen when more than one thousand seven hundred people formed the largest human jigsaw puzzle piece on record a I. The record raised awareness for autism spectrum disorder. The puzzle pieces the symbol for the autismspeaks organization. Vesper explained each Guinness World. Records title has a set of guidelines. That must be followed. The record for the largest human jigsaw puzzle piece is a great example to highlight. This is considered one of our largest human image categories and the idea is to have a group of people gathered together to form a recognizable image. We define a jigsaw puzzle piece as an oddly shaped interlocking and Tessa leading piece designed to be part of a larger picture. The human image to be created would need to be instantly recognizable as a puzzle piece and not an entire puzzle. This record title can be broken if another group creates same image with a larger group of people. Anybody up for the challenge.
"lotus" Discussed on Blue Lotus Buddhist Temple Podcast
"Good morning speak when we mullahs. And it's Friday. Morning may the eighth. It's beautiful and sunny. I'm dividing days of mostly in my head by the rainy day or the sunny day or the cold and Sunny Day The day of the week gets lost. Sometimes I just earlier this morning I love listening to the Chicago public radio station and Especially for their news coverage and they have a BBC news in the morning and today. I didn't realize I know yesterday was V. Sock Day the full Moon Day in June and the sixteenth. This one Blue Lotus. I said the fourteenth yesterday the sixteenth is when Blue Lotus ordinarily would have celebrated that at our temple this year SUPPO- Yesterday and it's still a full moon. Today I think so.

The that took a little bit longer other places to reach that final end of the battling day as we know but I was I really immediately was thinking about think of how many years Europe was struggling and in a living through a war and such an such a terrible war just trying to entire populations of people being wiped out. And I thought about this co Quarantine that were under and how hard it is for people to to make it through six weeks of trying to maintain social distancing wearing masks and we know when we listen to the health authorities. We're going to have to be Moving into our new future slowly and gradually and so many things will be changing so I think it would be really inspiring to listen to that feeling from people who had been living with the threat of bombs every night in some areas all day long losing their loved ones every day hearing about losses Hearing hearing about the the atrocities of the war as they were uncovered over the years and economies being shattered and I think I think it's always good to put things in perspective is to look at history and see what we're capable of going through and coming out of it stronger and better and so let's let this be the seventy fifth anniversary for V day. Let it be let it be a reminder to us that we can. We can get through everything we can get through. This and this virus is not. It's it's this is not something to sneeze that. That's not the image to use. This virus that were experiencing is getting us into a lot of Economic Pain and people are having so much difficulty dealing with. I think I think it's time for us to have compassion for ourselves and for others and be more accepting of different people's ways of responding to the to the restrictions they feel in the fear they feel and for our own I read Michael Franz X. Beautiful facebook story about a group he was working with and Tree Lanka recently and The the beauty and the dignity he saw from people who've experienced a lot of poverty in isolation in Being a outcast of their own society in some ways so that would be good. If you can read that. It's a beautiful little piece. But he he makes a statement in that too about. We have to have compassion for ourselves when we judge other people and they will. Their response isn't the way we should be responding. So it's I know that's always something we can work with in our practice and we do it the same way that we send loving kindness to ourselves and radiated out we can send compassion to ourselves and understand that We are is not the way everybody else's and that we have our own fears about this. We have our own pain. We have our own issues we're dealing with and we can have compassion on ourselves and then we can send that out to others and work with our difficult people that way we. We need to all kind of step back and breathe. Which is what we're doing here every day and And see that our brothers and sisters that our planet all over this planet people are going through difficult times when we go through difficult times. We often become difficult. People challenging people It's hard for us to deal with things and to work through our pain. It's not their layers to it and I think we're beginning to see and look a look at and think about all the layers to this the rippling effects that are happening happening very quickly in our society and Family people with children of people living alone people people who are more hermit likened nature and people who are more people wanted in nature in their regular pre cova days. Were all reacting differently and we need to take that into account so be. Be careful about not beginning to judge people in the different ways. They're handling things but at the same time keep your own boundaries and do what you think is right for you and don't let your your fear of other people's decisions caused you to become fearful. We can take care of ourselves. Because we're we know what we need and we know we can find the right people to get our information from and to move forward so let's work with our own. Let's work with compassion towards our own fears and our own worries and our own anxieties. And then let's send out the same compassion for others. We have to keep doing that all the time and also find some things to be joyful about an laugh about an have humor about and find the beauty in every day and every minute and then were then. We'LL BE FINE. Move through this slowly and calmly and that's that will be we'll look back and think maybe we'll find all the proud moments of the way we handle things and decisions. That were made that. We think we know we`ll. It'll be a lot of history written about this period so Right now we're experiencing it so we need to live in the moment and be be able to live beautifully. Through this experience there will be grief and there will be pain. There will be suffering and we need to understand that this Changing world that's the nature of this world so enjoy V. E. Day today and listen to some really heart stirring Memories and speeches in the beautiful things from the ending of the war and I think that will inspire you. It's certainly I. It's certainly rang true for me and beautiful listening to some of the memories people have and how they were able to take that break and have have a period of joy and then they had to go into the whole recovery for all of Europe which was devastated in a way that we none of us living in America have in this country and how that they needed that break. They needed that inspiration to get on with the next stage and I'm sure I'm sure it was a life giving break for so many people. So let's sit for A. Let's have a short. Let's do a short sit. Today is Friday. I'll see you again on Sunday. But let's do a short sent so generally close is if you're looking out over scenery that is calming for you. You can let your gaze be out but let it be downward so you not get distracted with too much going on. Let's body had that beautiful straight posture. Whether you're on the floor her walking or sitting let your body feel aligned..

It's a it's a big week long celebration with festivals all over and food and it's all about giving so it's definitely not something we do to raise money. It's something that we do to offer to the entire community and so it's a very special and it's springtime so we always remember. The Buddha was born outdoors and he became enlightened outdoors under a tree. He was born under a tree. He became enlightened and then his death was out in nature and in there in the wilderness. Really outside a really small village under the shade of a Tree. And so it's beautiful to celebrate in the springtime. This this wonderful celebration of important times in the life of the Buddha

This is considering. We haven't often been able to do only spoke skulls which is a shed. We've already done things.

Hey We want an e. v. you it seems like maybe you get excited about that although unconventional because we think of hyper-cars Still having some sort of a gas powered engine but as a designer you don't have limitations of trying to squish engine into kind of stuff a big engine or or whatever into their and then with that engine comes with the radiators and cooling and things like that so now you can really kind of form a shape that just just fantastic and gorgeous by then you have to kind of. I don't know maybe real it back a little bit because it still needs to look like a car you air we. When we started off we said we had some sort of aspirations and we said it had to look beautiful.

Yeah you probably can't fit in it But it's going to be interesting to hear your thoughts on. How is this setting a design direction for Lotus as well? We're going to start to see. These elements starts to trickle down to some of the other cars or otherwise. Yeah some elements which will guy fooling two punks and I want to these days else for a couple of reasons.

Meditation will spend about thirty minutes together. If you can remember these are recorded too so you can. You can bought US listen to them any time. That's good for you today. I'd really like us to think about our breathing. That something that until recently until the time of this virus we probably haven't had to think about very much and now we're recognizing Not only the importance of it but Everything that we're doing all over the world to help keep people breathing whom we think about her day to day. Lives were often so busy in so consumed with everything consumed and consuming everything around us that We use expressions. Like I didn't have a minute to breathe or I'll sit down and breathe later when I have time or we're always breathing so let's work today together on just being able to relax and stay with our breath and really exploring our body that way and sometimes if we can stay with our breath. We're actually going to be letting more rice up for us to look at to see so it can be emotional especially these days. Sometimes a four tight with our breath. We're not breathing deeply and calmly wherein stand pushing things away so if we can really be with our breath be still and the calm and stay with our breath. Lots of things may rise up so if don't be surprised or uncomfortable if something painful or sad rices up. That's that's that's not bad and we can handle it. It's in our body somewhere so let's be more aware of what's this. What's here just this morning? I heard about the death of the mother of two dear friends of mine and And I know how difficult it is for them right now and I think when we feel in this experience where all going through around the world were feeling things for all living beings everyone were connected to and our connections with every other living being or becoming more and more real to us every day. There's no separation so there will be sadness and there will be pain and there will be suffering and the best thing we can do when we're in the midst of that is to sit with our breath and let our hearts open up. So let's do that now so gently. Close Your eyes and if you can breath in and out through your nose.
FBI, SEC looking at lawmakers' stock trades after coronavirus briefings: report
"The justice department is reviewing those stock trades made by some lawmakers after corona virus briefings Dianne Feinstein Burr and I think Kelly Loeffler also are being being investigated where are we with that what do we know well according to published reports that the FBI has started asking questions about senator Burr's trades which were made after a confidential briefing although not a classified briefing and certain members of the product about the virus itself and of course there was a senator Feinstein's husband he gauged in expensive trade she personally did not that that that's almost irrelevant in the story my guess is nothing will happen for many of this yeah even though Congress passed the law back in two thousand twelve making it specifically in legal for members of the Senate and house decreed on confidential material non public information it doesn't appear that these meetings are going to meet that standard it could be classified briefing need being that would indicate that aside the politics of this are pretty ugly it's pretty obvious that bird did in fact trade on not non public information and I think it was material I think Burke who is not running for re election widely in North Carolina who has been analysis of the president and has allowed mark wanted to run the Senate intelligence committee hi Burgess figure he's on his way out so why not make a few Bucks pretty disgusting behavior but I don't think the justice department will ever pull the trigger although if they were going to they certainly picked on the public interest yeah now and and can you spell that this sort of colors in the lines over what we've seen the last few years you mention with the Senate intelligence committee thank you know Republicans are in charge is there but we just haven't seen a lot of traction from that Intel committee to get at the root of the problems in our government and now you're looking at a guy who just betrayed his oath of office in order to enrich himself well I think the present really a classic example of the never Trumper with power in the Republican contact he's he's practically a democratic civil servant of the weighted resistance as function is trump took the presidency of Birkhead heated front from the beginning he has obstructed getting to the truth about the Russian hoax although there was getting in plain sight you never heard him say anything supporters about the president during that entire three year pokes Burke is not well white in the White House as you might imagine he he is well liked by his fellow senators interestingly enough but that's the nature of the club pretty pathetic guy and he will not be missed by those of us who care deeply about the country and then exit aria which was singing this tune on stock trading is pretty disgusting and it's shameful actually but I don't think anything criminally legal will come from it yeah sad Joe the justice department is now saying that anyone caught intentionally spreading the corona virus could face terrorism charges is this something that they can make stick are they probably could I think there's enough public anger at anybody taking advantage of this situation you see new cases where somebody spits on lotus road beds doubles in a in a a grocery store or supermarket ending you know that often produce has to be destroyed and then the person is arrested this could be considered a terrorist act under not only federal law but under most states now have anti terrorism statute because it's designed to do harm in a political situation etcetera etcetera if it yeah I doubt if there will be any of the cases brought because again talk about limited resources and what we have to do but if anyone knowingly we're spread the virus Bob well somebody worked in a hospital it took advantage of access the bios or anything like that I have no doubt that would be a prosecution individuals doing something like this you know we'll see how I've got the prosecutors are I would do it if I regret it but you know I'm not there

Been must be a pretty absurd amount right eighths. <hes> i've worked on the little 'cause on i won't let what comes with some racing cows and nights seemingly quite shocking lee high but where being <hes> reserved at the moment because we're only just starting to run real a prototype so we've done a huge amount shifty and analysis work generally but until we run real vehicles on the bits a bit cautious we don't and we promise and under deliver but i think we've got so much margin on the car things going to be quite quite exciting the first company that actually does the drive upside-down thing so demonstrate town you the first one to do it.
