Carl Reiner dies at age 98
"Broke earlier today. That a TV giant, a comedic giant by the name of Carl Reiner. Has passed away at the age of ninety eight. Years Old. That's a good run. I think I'm sure he wanted more. He still seemed to be in remarkable. I was about say remarkably good health I mean at least in terms of his mind. Yeah, in terms of his deftness. His quickness. Until the end almost variant and you know he and Mel Brooks Mel Brooks is all I got to believe over ninety as well? And they go way way way way back. And it's been as I. Think for those of US old enough to remember reiner in his prime. And or Mel Brooks, in his prime. It's been rather delightful. And, of course they, they shared some hugely successful. Genius comedy moments but. In latter years I think they've done so many interviews and bits together. That? We've gotten a better idea of just what a great relationship they had and how funny together they still were no matter what decade we were talking about
NASA Needs A Toilet That Works In Microgravity And Lunar Gravity
"I. Don't think we actually ended up talking about this yet. Even though it's been something that I think it was on several of our radars for quite some time now we always are getting into some of the unexpected ramifications from the Covid, nineteen situation and I don't know that these are related, but maybe the fact that we're focused on it now more than we would be if we weren't all under this pandemic situation, the fact that NASA is offering people a little side money, a little side Gig. I know you've seen this what he I think. They would like you to Come up with a toilet. NASA. The NASA by the way. The whatever it stands for North American space guys. Matt Sustain. National Aeronautical. Agency came very high and mighty when I didn't get mine anyway. We all know what NASA is. They have the lunar. Lou Challenge sees me. It's administration. I don't WanNa. Leave the people wrong. Lunar Lou Challenge I. Don't think we even said what it was so i. don't think we let anybody wrong the only way they. Yes, they would like to create A. For Space, specifically, it has to do with the moon and the base that they would like to build their. That's why they're calling it the lunar Lou. Qualified for that here's somebody from well. You may not be, but that doesn't mean everybody's not. Here's a dude from NASA explaining a little bit. Hollow it just was not animal tail. Astronauts do not take. The Apollo bad scenario again there's suction involved or any good seal, but. On for going number two, so it's not just sitting on a toilet and going. STRAPS and harnesses. So I you know I'm sure what he has all the answers because he studied how astronauts go to the bathroom for years now, but the headline and I've tweeted out the link by the way you could win thirty five thousand dollars. Maybe I should mention that right upfront which I gotta be honest doesn't sound like enough to me. You create a toilet that they use with NASA. Seems like there ought to be a little bit more donut for you, but thing says help astronauts go back to the moon and twenty twenty four NASA seeks new designs for a toilet that will work both in microgravity and in lunar gravity,

What You Can Learn From Black Hat SEOs
"To another episode of marketing. School, I'm Eric. Su and I'm Neil Patel and today. We're GONNA. Talk about what you can learn from black hat seo, so if you haven't checked out the last two episodes. We got what you can learn from Internet. Marketers what you can learn from growth hackers and today we're GONNA. Talk about what you can learn from black hat. Seo's so let's talk about that. What does that mean to you? Kneel? I'll tell them what it means to me. Sure Black S heels are people who are willing to do stuff that's against. Let's say Google policies or any search engines guidelines hall sees to get rankings when look at black, Seo's you can find a lot of what they think or lot of the tactics that they're doing on some forms like there's a blackout forum. There's quite quite a few blackout forms blackout role that believe is a main one or the most popular one at all of them, but check it out and you'll see the tactics that. That people are doing, and they're not all doing shady stuff on those forms, and they're not always necessarily bending Google skylines, but in essence that form is for people who are willing to do whatever to try to get the rankings I remember when you own quick sprouts. There was this one graph you showed from Serpine Q. I actually pulled out from blackout form when I showed it to you, and then you use it in a blog post that lou him up anyway. My point is when I think. Think about Black Seo's when I was first starting out at Seo I was like I'm going to try everything I'm GonNa Learn White Hat, learn black, because I knew that if I did black-eyed gray hat stuff on my own websites just to test it out to see what would happen, I would understand how far I could push it. And what I realized from having these initial websites was whenever I tried these black tactics. It was very easy. Come easy go. It didn't feel right. It didn't feel like. Like I was adding value into the ecosystem bells lesson for me because I was like okay. If I'm not adding value into ecosystem, and it feels like I'm spamming. I probably am spamming so what I learned to flip, the switch and I was like okay. Let's think about the long-term. Instead that made things a lot easier and to be frank I'm not really good at blandings up very quickly. What I've been good at is slow, boring, consistent growth over time. That's one thing I learned from it. For me is I look at these forms and stuff like that I'll see the tactics that they're using to try to get higher rankings, and for me a lot of times it helps Dow Day on what's really moving the needle for Google or what direction that algorithm is going. Sometimes we'll talk about how they're doing private blogging networks, getting high rankings or use the exact match domains, and then they'll. They'll say Oh, they just happen your exact match. Domain names I got hit like they used to be grade or my private blog number got hit. He gives me key insights on where the is going. Be Some people share their data most of them anonymously, and they won't share their URL's, but that's fine. It just gives you insights on what's happening with the algorithms thrashing the search engines are heading. And what I learned to observing black-eyed marketers is that. You don't WanNa. Put all your eggs in one basket meaning. I've seen a lot of them. They invest everything into Seo and then all their properties get burned up and what ends up happening is they ended up just blaming. Google for their circumstances all the income that they had in the past. Maybe they could have been doing. Six figures profit a month in some cases even up to seven invaders, everything just disappears overnight, so what I learned is you have to diversify, and even if you're doing things the right way, you cannot just trust one channel in today's Day and age. If you're bet everything I think from a business perspective overall I think that's not being very smart. Totally have nothing else from my end. Add One more. Kind of Neal's point, I remember in the past waste. Read these forums. You're probably reading them again. When I used to reduce forms, there's a couple people in there that were building these pin's or these private blogging networks. They would actually sell it as a service, so it became assessing, and everyone started buying it. I was like Oh. Wow, you can see which business models are working. Quite the next day those businesses will go up in. Flames is like Oh my God. I don't know how they caught on my ps. One thing I will say is maybe in some cases you shouldn't advertise when something's working really really really well, because in some cases when you talk to other issues right now, they're still doing pbs and it's actually working, but they're not bragging to the world or talking about everywhere. And Eric and I are recommending that. You do stuff that we don't do PBS by the way we yet. Yet. We're big believers that you should just do what the long term. Even if the results aren't as good as longevity, you'll do way better and what's funny. Enough is user experiences. What's GonNa end up crushing funny enough Google, publishing a post on how they're rolling out more user experience within the algorithm say that for different but just to give a little preview you about customer experience Amazon. They just obsess over the customer user expensive. Just obsess over that and you do it for extended period of time. You'll be fine. I'll just double down again anytime. I've tried something. That's gray black in the early days of me doing this learning this. Easy come easy go and never felt right, and that's why I. Don't do any of it. Now I'd just rather do the boring stuff same with meal.
Debt Is Never the Answer with Dave Ramsey
"My twenties, I believed what a lot of people believe. The borrow money to make money. I got a degree in finance and the power of leverage and the simplistic formula that if you borrow at one interest rate by percent, four percent, and you reinvested, and you make ten or twelve percent that you're making the spread. That is simplistic, primitive wrong, but I believe that lots of people quote that to me on twitter. to show how ignorant I am that I just don't understand the power of leverage, but I do understand the power of leverage and. Four million dollars worth of real estate until I was twenty four and twenty five years old, and I bought it right so I had a net worth of a million dollars, which means only owed three million on the four million and make a couple of hundred thousand dollars a year flip in properties and doing things, but leverage is a two edged sword, and people never talk about the other edge of it. They always. It only works when it works. Marring money only works when it works. And so, what happened to us was we went broke because the bank called her notes, and we didn't have any liquid. We didn't mean money. We weren't laid on the notes. They just panicked. hysteria tax climate that we were in the presidential climate that we were in and called. You know, look around. Song is ninety short-term notes for flips, and they call them, so we spent two and a half years losing everything we own well in that process I had a an existential crisis. And everything that I believed evidently was wrong. Yeah, and so I went through this whole thing of my intellect, being crushed and questioning and as a Christian I was met God on the way up I got to know him on the way down, and so I started studying biblical finance, and I found the borrowers slave to the lender, and I found one hundred percent of the references in the Bible to dead or negative. And so as a believer that puts a challenge against your finance degree. Yeah, no kidding and you go okay. Somebody's wrong and somebody's right because they're two polar opposites, and you can't just say well, you know sometimes. It's not sometimes in the Bible. And it's all the time in the finance classroom. That's right that you borrow, and so I had to really took me why at first I was in a position and that I just bought it based on my faith. Okay, I don't borrow money. God said. Don't borrow money on. Borrow money period. And then over time I've started understand the intellectual reasons for that the mathematical reasons for that and so I don't borrow money by basically when you borrow money, you increase risk. and. When business people say zero. Five hundred thousand dollars to buy this piece of equipment. They do not. Ascertain risk. They say I can borrows money at six percent and I can put the piece of equipment to work and I can make twelve or fourteen percent on my money, but that's only if everything goes perfectly as it did in your head, and it never goes perfectly business about ninety percent of my ideas that I think are brilliant that I bring to the market. It suck. And borrow on them. It destroys. My life doesn't work, but I think this is a pretty everyone sees you as the guy on the cover of the book cutting up the credit card and the guy that's yell at people for taking car payments, but we don't always address the topic of debt for business. What you're saying is that the same principles apply to how you run your business as how you and your personal absolutely, and if you to look at it through the faith lands, you can't find it in scripture if you WANNA look at it through an intellectual Lens. Let's actually do real math in a real business case. Okay, if you get a finance degree and you get licensed. Licensed in securities like I have been, and you've been in that world. We know in that world that we do not compare a high risk. Mutual Fund apples to apples with a low risk mutual fund. There is a measure of risk mathematically. It's the height of the valley, the height of mountain if you graph it if you see the waves graph in your mind right now, the ones that are straight up straight down have a higher Beta. A Beta is a mathematical statistical measure of risk Okay, and so we know that you can take the bait drop it under the line, meaning an inverse mathematical formula and being complicated here, but the point is, you can intellectually look at this. So when you add risk when you adjust for risk, you can compare these two mutual funds apples to apples. By putting the Beta, underline yeah, inverse relationship, so you're adding risk into your math formula so that you can accurately look at the situation. Most people ninety eight percent of the business cases that entree leaders have brought to me and supposedly sophisticated people who criticize me on blocks. They do not have any measure of risk in their formula. They're not saying what happens if this happens, what happens if there's a move in the marketplace what happens if a customer doesn't pay me, what happens if it doesn't sell like? I think it's going to sell, and it can be something as simple as that guy borrowing ninety thousand dollars to buy a dump truck. And it's GonNa work out I'm GONNA saw him on a whole lot of stuff dump truck. We can't get loads. Fuel prices go up insurance prices. Go Up. He has wreck here about any of those things, and so he says I'm GonNa make money by borrowing money, but there's no mathematical measure of risk in that formula, and when you insert risk into your leverage formula, the benefits of Leverage go away. They dissipate. So turns out. We can mathematically prove that God was right. socking. I mean that's what it comes down to so present this. A bunch of MBA's at Vanderbilt spoke to him. Ba Group over there and they were looking at me like German shepherds Oh. That's what I was GONNA say. Lou because nowhere in academia. Does anybody talk about this?
"It's often called one of the most beautiful cities in North, America for twenty one years Kenton was the president and CEO the Tourism Authority that promotes Vancouver British Columbia to the rest of the world. During his tenure, the city successfully bid to host the Winter Olympics. City's growing into a top shelf destination that attracts to end residents from around the World Vancouver is prized for its natural beauty and recreational opportunities. recanting joins US now on travel with Rick Steves to share some of the lessons. He learned as an international tourism promoter. Rick thanks for being here. It's nice to be here. Every time I meet a tourism director for a godforsaken depressing city I won't say which ones I think. What a shame and then what I meet a tourism director for a place like. Vancouver I think you got a good Gig well has a nice city to be the tourist and promoter for well. It's terrific to be able to invite the world to come and visit your hometown, and when it's a beautiful place like Vancouver in Canada. It's all the nicer, but it brings with it the complexities because it's you want people to come want them to enjoy things. You want them to extend their length of stay. You want them to feel the things that you feel on your. Want them to meet the locals, but you know that what they wanted to come and see is. That's the mountains and there's the ocean I could touch both of them right now in the next half hour. It's a pretty special place, but you were running the show for twenty years there and Essentially you're hired to ring money out of people who come to town for the economy not to help people have. Experiences I mean. How do you balance that? Did you ever get in trouble because you have some ideals? I was constantly in trouble because. I have to remind the hotel community that people don't leave home to go stay in hotel room. They leave to go and have an experience and too many in the tourism businesses. It's about a cash registering, and that is but one element and we pushed. We had it in our mission statement. That tourism is about the financial. Ecological? Social and cultural benefits that come took community by having visitors from around the world. Spend time with them, so it's four pronged. Only one of them relates to the dollar. If we don't travel, we don't have empathy for the rest of the world here in the United States were four percent of the planet, and they're actually people in our country. That think we're exceptional and you can't think that when you travel. You just can't think that if you travel smartly and tourism can help with. With that empathy or it can actually hurt with that empathy and I'm glad that there are people in tourism that can speak up for the the real transformational value travel, sadly when I go to a tourism convention, and I meet somebody from a developing country like say Egypt. They're all about sending people to a resort and a golf course and you know something where you jet in, and you have this utopia, and conceivably you would never even meet a real person. You'd meet only this. Fancy version right and when you do get the real people and the real food and the real occasions it's uplifting spiritually, uplifting environmentally uplifting and it. It works so I like your tact in that there are challenges around global warming and around the footprint of travelers, but there are solutions that can be brought, so there are offsets that can be used off her convention. Organizers offsets for their delegates that were coming for. For the air air flight damage. You know you talked earlier about conference actually. Lou, Damore, who had more that was him. Yeah, he heads up the International Institute for Peace Through Tourism Yeah and every time, I talk about tourism as a powerful force for peace I attributed to a more, but there is also an Indian cabinet minister. That I heard once at a conference for the Pacific Asia Travel Association when we're in. A New Delhi and he addressed the group, and he said something else that I will never forget, he said. Tourism sits on the right hand of peace. I love that. Yeah, wonderful it powers it is. We've got so much in common, and there's so much fear, and the fear really is strongest with people who don't get out and when you get out, you realize. Hey, we're all in this together.
Patients increasingly checking ‘Dr. Google’
"As the pandemic continues it seems even more of us are tempted to check our various medical symptoms on the internet Dr Jason west is on the KRLD news line Dr west I recently heard somebody use the term Dr Google and I thought it was a joke but it turns out Dr Google is a real thing it actually is a real the it's what happens when people have some concern symptoms condition diseases I go to the internet and they go to global they type in you know muscle twitches hi twitches restless leg syndrome and they usually get some horrible diagnosis like you know Lou Gehrig's disease or something like that and they'll come into the office and say Dr west I'm dying because Google told me that muscle twitches they have this condition is it a bad thing to go looking to check symptoms on the internet Dr where should we ever do that well I I actually think it's a good bad thing and what I mean by that is I think people get better healing results and stuff when they are informed when they know what's going on but that is a double edged sword because when you start looking for things on the internet you can find you know good and bad just about everything in it does seem to feed on people's fears and the walk in and say look I have this really unusual disease I've got thirty days or less to live in a household where did you get that information in and so it's a double edged sword I mean I mean I really cautious until people to go one way or the other because I think there's benefit in knowing what's going on but it is easily to get swayed into thinking that something is absolutely horrible I am seeing this term cyber contrary us a lot more lately during this pandemic is it something that's grown more rampant thanks to cope with nineteen well I think so because people have more time on their hands there it's unusual off on what's happening and so they're looking for a void to fill so they get on the internet and I started just looking and searching for just about everything and it literally when when you have any health care concern and you start typing in the symptoms the problem is is the likelihood of having a serious disease R. I mean statistically aren't that high but if you type in dry fever cough you know you're gonna come up I've got a corona virus because those are the symptoms but there's a lot of things because the try fever and a cough and a set rule number one if you're going to go see doctor Google on the internet and check a symptom don't freak out it what you find I think it's a really good just reassurance to tell people look there are so many things that can cause a fever muscle twitches of stomachache headache I mean headaches another example almost everybody at sometime in their life will get a headache but as you go type it in the first thing I'll tell you what you could have a brain tumor you could have a budgetary teamwork and then the likelihood of that happening is so low it's almost like winning the lottery I mean in a reverse way and so if people are armed with some reassuring facts like he looked at the statistics of what those serious conditions are let's just see get your physiology balance let me search there with you it really helps so that people don't get into a state of cyber Congress
Mind Over Body Cure
"Well, we've heard quite a few people on this show and others claim that they have thought themselves well, even in the face of death, but what about those people who do get sick and do get worse and die. Are they being made to feel guilty for not thinking themselves well well. My guest today are on opposite sides of this mind over body debate. Doctors don't know why my first guest is alive Lynyrd, borden says He. He changed his attitude. Imagine summarize warriors fighting the cancer in his body. A month later, the cancer was gone my next. Gus was told she had eighteen months to live if she did not have chemotherapy for her breast cancer Jane, Griffiths says she refused the treatment ten years later. She is still alive. My next guest wrote one of the most popular mind over body bestsellers. Dr Bernie seagulls love. Medicine and miracles explains his experiences with. With what he calls exceptional patients who hill themselves in the face of death. My next guest is a doctor who totally disagrees with Dr Segel's philosophy Dr Shirley new says sick. People are being made to feel guilty if they don't heal themselves, and there is no proof whatsoever that any of this works Dr Newlyn is author of doctors the biography of medicine. My next guest got so tired of people telling him that his severe backache. Backache was his own doing because of a bad attitude and stress. He wrote a column in Newsweek. Magazine to complain about it. Meet Rabbi Benjamin Black and my last guest says when she was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's disease, people wanted her to try acupuncture and Yoga and love to get well and Spain says she live as long as she can, but she is also planning her death. Welcome all of our guests to the show. Start with you. I'll start with you. Because is where we got the idea to do the show from that column that you wrote in Newsweek magazine. What happened? I suffered from a herniated disk and I was just looking for some sympathy. And, then I suddenly realized that there was a psychological change in our society. and. Everybody kept saying to me. Why are you doing this to yourself? You must be the victim of self induced stress. And what really got me upset was that I recall the friend of mine who had died of cancer. who was able to deal with the reality of sickness? But couldn't cope with the fact that throughout the last days people made him feel as if he was the guilty one because he didn't obviously want to get well strongly enough because he wasn't trying hard enough, and he would cry to me. Does this mean I'm failure? What I'm saying is that there's an extreme position today I grant of course that there's a great deal to mind body relationship I grant as well that there is such a thing as love, medicine and miracles. What I think is wrong is I believe is a rabbi that we pray for miracles, but we don't expect miracles and when they don't happen, say that anybody who isn't well must be guilty himself. Don't blame the victim. Victim. Do you think Dr Newland this is making? People feel guilty as they die well. There's no question about that. That's really not my problem with Bernie's propositions. My problem with Bernie's propositions has to do with the aura science that he puts around them, in spite of the fact that what he's actually done is to take an enormous leap of faith, which of course is the secret of it all an enormous leap of faith from certain experiments, which show something that we all agree on that. There is a psychological factor that involves the immune system I don't think any sensitive physician physician with any experience could possibly disagree with the concept that patient state of mind is very important in their illness. But along comes Bernie, and says poof. The mind controls the immune system direct quote, the only quote I memorized from the book burning so that I could use it today. There's no evidence of that, and as long as people continue to believe with their minds, they can control their immune system there believing something that they simply can't do. It's like getting high LSD and trying to jump off a roof and fly, but you yourself just said that it's an enormous leap of faith and suppose it does suppose it does control the immune system, but there is no proof that it does. It's not a question of there being no proof that it does or does not. It's a question of our already being so close to understanding the various factors that do control the immune system that we know that the mind, the conscious mind is only one small factor. What actually happens is that whether we develop immunity to something whether we can control the disease process has to do with three systems in our body.
How to Go Braless
"But, then she found boob love in a hopeless place by the mid two thousand ten's. Riana was already becoming iconic for her bra fashion statements, so when photos of her nip slips started, popping up on shares tumbler feed. She titillated so I was like this is so cool that this. Singer, she's so punk that she's not wearing a bra. That is so pumped to me I'm going to do the same. And I was going to performing arts school at the time the Brit School. So that was a school where individualism was definitely appreciated and encouraged, so I didn't have that fear of what if I get laughed at because it was a performing arts school, so you'd expect to find all kinds of characters in an environment like that, and even though I mean I never came across anybody who will come to me and be like why not wearing a Bra? But it was something where I definitely used that time to build my confidence, because walking into a canteen, full of boys and girls who have their own opinions of viewing opinions of everyone else. It really will make you forcefully build character. If you choose to do something that's quite nonconformist like not wearing a bra. Yeah? I mean I can. Especially the the first few times you did that. Were you nervous at all? Like? How are you feeling? Are you just like visit me? And deal with it. I didn't think much of it. Because I saw I saw the almost like it was like an old to the ninety s like Jimbo. Those old pictures of Jennifer Aniston in the nineteen when she was filming the first few runs, a friends, and she's not wearing raw, and it's like those of images. What what I was looking at I, kind of curated my social feed in such a way. That I was seeing images of women who went wearing a Bra. If they're outfit so for me. It was like I'm not the first ever person to do this, so it's not like I'm doing something that's. So shock horror. The feeling of choosing to not abroad was fun because it felt like a fashion statement for me, and also it was like it almost made me feel like a little bit made me feel Elizabeth more sexy equivalent. Of wearing a push up bra? Ironically, it's like not wearing a bra and having your Nipples of showing for your outfit Lou bit. In a way for me, critics the same. Impact might be to create if I were to put on a push up Bra cleavage. It's still the same concept of the something on my chest. I know you WANNA. Look at.

Turning Proteins into Device Coatings that Provide Therapeutic Benefits
"Lou Alvarez a West Point graduate who earned a PhD in bioengineering from Mit served twenty years in the military including time as an intelligence officer in Iraq, he saw injured soldiers, who doctors were able to save only to later have their limbs amputated because of the inability for injuries to heal properly, the experience led him to develop a means of turning recombinant proteins into a form that allows them to be used as coatings that act like paint can be applied to implants to promote growth and other benefits. We spoke to Alvarez founder of their adaptive about his journey from the battlefield, the lab how his company's platform technology works and the range of applications to which it may be applied. Lou thanks for joining us. It's great to be here. We're GONNA talk about Regenerative Medicine Third DA- positive and your efforts to improve the ability of bones to heal. I'd like to start with your own journey and how you became involved in the field of regenerative medicine. A West Point graduate.

It was actually in Iraq that that I think this idea crystallized in my mind. You know what it is that I. WanNa do in science. A lot of people come in. To a scientific field and maybe have a question about what direction to take so many options, but. What I saw there and what I almost nearly experienced myself several times. You know these injuries that lead to lifelong. Disability. Several if he was serving with head injuries. For example to the limbs lower limbs. I'M GONNA. Get back to the states. Medical scientists able to save their lives, but some of them suffered amputation, and the now have lifelong disability, and all that was due to the fact that there really wasn't anything out there to regenerate tissues, so that that ideas what motivated when I got back from Iraq to to go back to mit again under the leadership to the the focus on this idea, precise tissue regeneration. How much contact had you had with with people who who became amputee? Well after I got back, I did have a lot more interactions with folks in the region near the Walter Reed. Military Medical Hospital. Just others that had served with who who had suffered injuries so. It was a period of time in two, thousand, five, six, seven, eight. Where you know, there were really a surgeon so more and more people that had served with people that they knew. Were suffering injury. So you know it's a close knit community end up. Seeing many of them again. You returned to mit to earn a PhD in biological engineering. What was the work you did there? How did it connect? Sure so when I went back, the army gives you three years basically to do a PhD so I knew I had to hit the ground running. And and have a plan for what to do and MIT's department of biological engineering was very. Welcoming and said you don't pick the professor that you want to work with also a worked with Linda, Griffith, who is really Tinier in the field of regenerative? Medicine Tissue Engineering. Actually! She was a post doc in the Bob Langer's lap. Developed the ear on the back of the mass back in the ninety S. So you know real rich tradition of tissue engineering there it was on her group that I was able to focus on this idea for good delivery of proteins to induce the body to regenerate tissue.

Soldiers. Who would come home would. have their lives save, but then end up losing limbs. That's a great question. It's something that maybe doesn't get a lot of attention so if you injure limb. Normally. That injury affects bone. Can AFFEC-, nerves and vessels, if any one of those tissues doesn't heal properly. Then you end up with a limb? That isn't usable. Actually becomes a burden to you and the medical guidance is that what's recommended? Amputation, which is a? This is amazing to me that you would. Basically discard limp because one of the wires is not the NACCHIO correct Civis, so to me I wanted to. Address a problem on a very detailed level this Aitken we regenerate? Let's say bone so now. You can save a bit if if the problem is that the bonus inhale. So. It's a piece wise approach to try to salvage alums. What are bone void fillers? And how are they used

"In the Nineteen Twenties and thirties. Lou GEHRIG was the first Baseman for the New York Yankees and a member of what many fans called murderers row because of their ability to crush the ball. He and his teammates were known for their offensive prowess at the plate and for winning numerous world series titles. Gary was a fan favorite but during the team's spring training and Florida in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine. He could tell something was wrong. Power that he'd been so famous for old but disappeared. He was often tired but had no idea why he desperately wanted to play every game and maintain his legendary starting streak but he also didn't want to embarrass himself by getting easily winded or making a mistake on the field even with the disappointing spring training showing he was given a starting spot once the regular season began after all. Gehrig was a in his manager. Hope that he would turn it around in March. Old reliable number four took his place at first base. Gehrig hope that he was passed whatever he'd experienced in the spring instead he got worse all through the month. His dominance at the plate was gone for good and people were noticing the notoriously harsh New York City press question GEHRIG's abilities. They noted that his hand eye coordination was still on point but garrick was struggling with power. He was hitting the ball but it wasn't going anywhere. His teammates noticed how he was struggling to. He was making rare errors at first and was incredibly slow on routine defensive plays on April Thirtieth Nineteen thirty nine. Gehrig went over for four. The played against the Washington senators. A hitless game had been unthinkable the season before but it was becoming his new normal. He couldn't stand to let the fancy him fade away. He knew he had to make a life. Changing decision on May Second. Dariga arrived at the stadium in suited up for the game. He laced up his cleats. And BUTTONED HIS JERSEY. He left the locker room and headed up the steps to the dugout there. He approached the Yankees Manager. Joe McCarthy and said that he was benching himself his starting streak was over at two thousand one hundred and thirty games but benching himself wasn't enough his wife. Eleanor noticed that something was very wrong with her husband at home and grew worried. Gehrig told her that he could feel weakness in his arms and every so often he had a tremor as he worsened she called the world renowned. Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. She told them of her husband's ailment and a few of his symptoms. The physicians agreed to run a few tests. Gehrig was a huge star and they were happy to help him out on June thirteenth. The GEHRIG's flew to Minnesota. He and his wife were hopeful that they'd finally get a handle on. Whatever was going on at the Mayo Clinic. Garrick met with Dr Paul. O'leary he recounted the onset of his illness and his current symptoms. Sadly A- Larry and other physicians at the clinic knew exactly what he was describing. And it didn't sound good everything lined up with. What Sharko had documented over seventy years before the problem was there were many other neurological diseases that fit gehrig's description to and there was no test for LS that meant. The doctors had to rule out other conditions. I guarantee spent nearly a week in Minnesota undergoing medical tests his physicians determined. It wasn't Parkinson's disease or Huntington's disease crossing off more possibilities every day. The list of what it could be was narrowing down to the worst possible outcome. It only took a week to get through all of the tests on June nineteenth nineteen thirty nine GHERIG's thirty sixth birthday. The doctors inform the famous ballplayer of his diagnosis garrick. Sad is he learned the grim news he had. Ls while this disease was rare. It affected over thirty thousand Americans a year and there was no cure. Garrick would just have to let it run. Its Course Dr O'Leary whom Garrick would go on to form a relationship with said that in many cases patients only made it three years before they died from the illness garrick was at a loss for words. He always been a hard worker and he was used to his efforts paying off. He didn't like that there was nothing he could do. Now then O'Leary gave him even more bad news. He had to stop playing baseball altogether. While the activity wouldn't aggravate the condition GEHRIG was putting himself at risk. Every time he set foot on the field his reaction times would only get slower and a one hundred mile per hour line. Drive at first base could do serious damage. Garrod left the Mayo Clinic in quiet despair but he trusted O'Leary's prognosis and knew there was no point fighting it. All he could do was make the best of his final years and say goodbye to the sport he loved on June twenty-first the Yankees announced gehrig's diagnosis and retirement to the public fans and sports lovers. All over. The country were shocked and saddened. Garrick was a hero. Things like this weren't supposed to happen to men with nicknames like Ironhorse to soften the blow the team announced that they beholding and appreciation day for Lou Gehrig on July fourth. Nineteen thirty nine fans filled Yankee stadium to give Gehrig a proper sendoff. Some of his old teammates like Babe. Ruth were in attendance before the game started. Gehrig walked to a microphone in the middle of the field to give a farewell speech. He said fans for the last two weeks. You've been reading about a bad break got yet today. I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth. There was hardly a dry eye in the house as Gehrig left the field for the last time he was optimistic even though his prognosis was in bright he was going to make the best of the time he had but he didn't have long at all. It was only two years later on June second. Nineteen forty one. That Lou Garrick died in his home in New York. It was a sad day for sports. Fans all over the country but the famous ballplayers fate wouldn't be in vain. Gehrig's death brought a pronounced awareness to a LS. He inspired countless donors and activists more money than ever before was funneled into charities and research across the Globe. Now better funded and supported. Physicians threw themselves into their studies. The race was on every day. More people were diagnosed with LS. The scientists had to find a cure and fast Lou. Gehrig wouldn't be the only famous name to suffer the disease before long a ls victims range from Johnstone. The creator of Sesame Street to physicist Stephen Hawking as well as countless ordinary people MOMS DADS SIBLINGS. New Research was their only hope for survival. But perhaps the answer lay in simple bucket of ice..

"Good morning Lou we have owned the KitchenAid dishwasher for five years has done a good job of course but in the last six months we found a lot of times we get a sludgy greedy sticky material stock especially take glasses now this particular model does not have a built in filter it just has a screen on the bottom below the spinner and I've also cleaned out the area around the where the door make stuff but that ad I have brand vinegar twice through the unit and I've also ran C. L. R. through the unit yeah is it any is it any better when you do any of that well there's no white powder they you know used to see a little bit of that button but I still see this often the glasses and my wife and I we see you know it's it's defective sticky stuff it with creativity and I'm wondering can I access underneath that screen okay couple things what kind of so player use and and we use a brand called finish that we get from cosco okay in is it a powder or liquid it's the kind of a solid piece second child trump but it's not a it's not a liquid correct yeah one of the things that I've heard a lot from people in this pertains to all different manufacturers of dishwashers it really doesn't matter which one is you know some of the chemical make ups of the powdered cleaners the what they're making it west is different and I don't know if it's environmental or it's a change in the recipe whatever you wanna call it that has changed and I have heard from quite a few people and even some repair people that the actual quality of the product that you use in there can affect this grading S. and that film that you see and so one of the recommendations that I've heard from some of the repair people is to go to a liquid and we were at our home we were cascade users for ever in the powder form and I notice that same grit now the the particular dishwasher we have has a screen that you pop out and pull out I know there's a filter that you have to do because it's a European style the American made ones like kitchen is they have a food grinder internet screen I'm at KitchenAid I can't remember I mean that models change but can you pull that screen out or no no are there data and it's vital there's other ones that they have that but not mine okay and there's no screws or anything when you look down in there that it doesn't cover plate that you could take off because I just wonder if that usually okay because I just wonder if there's something you know there's nothing to access from below because that's where the motor and the hoses and everything are going in the you know the evacuated that's the the solenoid rather that's coming out and taking it away if I was going to do anything on that there's two things I would recommend you know you've already done all the cleaners which I would have recommended the seal are the you know the cleaners for the dishwashers and you've wiped it all down the only thing I can be at this point is either some sort of foreign object in underneath that great that's on top of their or you need to switch soaps and you could do this for a test right goal if you go to the store my recommendation is go with a cascade liquid and use that for about a week and see if that makes a difference and it could just be the chemical makeup of what's changing with a lot of these powders and solids and it seems to be that the liquids do a better job obviously of dissolving because they're already a liquid form and the other thing that I will say in you may already do this but do you run the hot water at the kitchen sink first before you fire that thing up that normally but we get hot water pretty fast final but here's the thing when it feels right away if it's from a dead stop your two things are happening the KitchenAid does heat the water but it doesn't if you run the faucet and get it super hot then turn the dishwasher on you'll have hotter water they can dissolve more of that great and you can even try that with the existing with the existing soap that you have and it might be a temperature thing or maybe even your five year old KitchenAid maybe isn't getting the water as hot as it should and that could be an issue to okay we'll try the easy stuff first thank you you got it I appreciate your call and I'll be safe out there and heed the warnings of all the scientists and doctors and officials right now so we can get this thing licked you look in the house March radio with me Lou man for Danny it is own happen my time one of my clock hello it is three two one nine seventeen in the morning will be right back.

"That we seem to be getting this to work a little bit so we will you just like my wife telling me what came joke around anymore right okay we joke anymore this is Jeannie who is in a row origine good morning your in house March radio a good morning Lou how are you today I'm good how can I help you sh well I had a question about bathroom floors I have tried L. and I'd like to change the look of the grout my question is what should I used to practice the existing go out so that I can go ahead and you know after staying clean go ahead then and Greek grout well when you're gonna read router we gonna remove some of the ground to no I'd like to believe it just the way it is set to the floor is probably about twenty five years old right and the tiles are perfect just like route thank you Jenny but my question but here's the problem tell me about the tiles are they four by four of the six by six what are they no there's there are well I'd like a more positive note thank you well there are like three by three okay here's my only concern with this okay if you just go over the top of the grout the ground has nothing to grab on to because you're just you know it's not like putting makeup on where you're kind of you know putting a thin layer I had a cheek or something like that ground because it's cement Titius has to have something to hold on to and that's why when you put tiles in there and you know you've got a eighth inch gap or something like that you you want the grout to fit in there and so I really would like you to somehow grind out even a little bit like an eighth of an inch so the grout would have a place to grab onto then you could finish it off well that's how big of a Florida we have here well gosh maybe at not too big I think may be four feet by eight feet okay and are you gonna do this work I was planning on it wasn't too complicated all right so you have a couple options one you can buy a small little grout tool grout removal tool that looks like well it almost looks like a kitchen knife a little short little kitchen knife it has little stuffy like a paring knife but in the end of it it's got little teeth in like granules almost like a hard same paper that you would just go back and forth and each groove to to kind of remove the grout it's a lot of work or you could buy a product called a multi tool which is a about a hundred dollars and with the grout removal tool and that it vibrates like at ten thousand RPM you can hold in your hand they hate when I do that on TV but the you can hold in your hand will cut you but if you put it on a hard surface you can kind of go back and make quick work of this and so you pointed out give me a eighth of an inch of depth wipe down the floor with some just damp water to get all the dust off their van put your grout in and then finish it all off and you have to clean anything because you're gonna remove that layer of grout and that'll right that will be the best use of of your efforts in time okay and what would you in in case I decide not to do that what would be the best cleaner she just to make sure that the grout there then would all be the same color let's say all right so if you wanna trying to clean it I mean you can do you can do a whole bunch of different things you actually could clean it just with a mild solution of dish soap and warm water and a scrub brush and then what because all I'm trying to do is get the dirt and any oils or whatever and you know like some dawn dishwashing liquid does a great job with the oil and you could just clean all that up pull it all out of their wipe it down with a damp rag and then you know you could you could go over the top of that I just worry that you go through all that effort a wall last for you all right okay great well thank you so much I love I listen to you every year Saturday and I hope you and your family have a great new year I thank you very much happy new year to you as well that's very kind of you to say eight seven seven two one three four Lou eight seven seven two one three four five six eight is the phone number using today because I'm down in Florida lenses in Green Bay and Kevin's in galena Kevin you're on WGN good morning hello enjoy listening to your show every Saturday thank you well my question this morning it's out there putting in natural gas lines in the area where we live here in the lead up and I had the opportunity to convert for propane natural gas for my he stole the water here I'll just call you to ask you is it worthwhile because the up front conversion cost the kind of price you got forty five hundred dollars so I make it worth going from told saying to natural gas is that what what's your plan with your home in other words when you when you look at the crystal ball well you know what are you going to what you gonna do Hey I hope to be here another for ten years yes I do that exactly yeah I was going to say what myself and my wife god willing we're gonna be here for the next ten fifteen years okay so here's what's going to happen in the next ten years every home in that area is going to eventually go over to natural gas and if you don't do it when you go to sell the house they're gonna like all of that house that house that Kevin has is beautiful but they still have propane and so you know right now what do you do when you got out of the you got a contract with the propane provider right now coming in there filling up a giant tank and this and that and it's you know there's a cost and all of that and a and a potential hassle and where you get into the natural gas you know once it's all done it's you don't worry about it anymore and so for my added value proposition for your home when you go to sell if you if you can afford to do it it's worth the investment and the thing is if you're gonna be there ten years why not take advantage of it now so that you'll get to benefit from it the use of it for the next ten years and then it's a non issue when you go to sell then then the only issue is they don't like the carpeting or they don't like the color in the dining room or something like that which can be easily fixed well thank you I I appreciate the the.

Her name was was Fannie Lou Hamer. She was the youngest of twenty children born to black sharecroppers in Mississippi and in late nineteen sixty four for president Lyndon B Johnson was absolutely terrified of her why she was about to make make an appeal before the credentials panel at the Democratic National Convention. The potential implications were profound. Hamer represented the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party a racially integrated coalition of delegates Hamer wanted to challenge the seats of the current aren't all white democratic delegation from their state saying that they were in violation of the party's rules because they had systematically excluded excluded black citizens according to Time magazine. Johnson was worried that Hamer speech could offend the Southern Democrats whose votes he needed for reelection he wanted her silenced but Hamer had a following that rivaled that of Dr Martin Luther Author King Junior and she would not go unheard. Hamer was born in one thousand nine hundred seventeen in the Mississippi Delta. The share cropping system kept her parents in debt and without enough food to feed their twenty children in the Winter Hebrew tied rags on her feet because she often didn't have shoes. She started picking cotton when she was six years old. Aw Hamer started her civil rights work in nineteen sixty one after she was sterilized without consent during what it should have been a minor surgery she tried to register to vote in one thousand nine hundred sixty two but was turned away after she failed illiteracy literacy tests which were used in the south to discourage black people from voting the clerk asked Hamer complicated questions like interpreting the state constitution after she failed the test. She told the clerk she'd be back when Hamer returned to the plantation in that day. She was fired from her job but she wasn't defeated. Hamer became a student nonviolent. Coordinating Committee a community organizer and helped found the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party in reaction to the lack of integration in the state's Democratic Party party as a candidate from the party. She ran for Congress in nineteen sixty four against democratic incumbent Jamie L whitten at that year's Democratic Democrat National Convention. Hey made her way to the stage through a crowd of men who refused to make space for her other members of the civil rights movement including Martin Luther King Junior spoke but all eyes were on her. She then talked for thirteen minutes Mr Chairman and to could dentures committee. My name is Mrs Fannie Lou Hamer. She called for mandatory delegation an integration and recounted her experience trying to register to vote. It was the thirty first of all the night being the eighteen of US travel. Put the six miles the county courthouse in in the normal tried to register to become first. I player Hamer describes being arrested in beaten in Mississippi jail after white waitress at a rest. Stop refused her service. That's how she got the blood clot. All of this is own account. We won't be registered to become first-class. NFL Freedom Democratic Party is not beating not after her testimony humor and other other Freedom Party members discovered that Johnson a wildly tough politician had held a news conference so that national television networks could he cover her testimony live. She was livid but Johnson's efforts to silencer didn't work that that night in a hot Atlantic City Hotel Room Hamer and the rest of the country watched her testimony broadcast in prime time on the evening news news less than a year later. Congress passed the Voting Rights Act and at the nineteen sixty eight convention in Chicago. He became team the first African American to be seated as a delegate. She received a standing ovation.

lot in a very short period of time so stick around eight podcast quick housekeeping note if you do this podcast one easy way can supported get over at apple podcasts post a comment leave a rating it's simple it's easy it's free it is the very best way to make sure that we keep doing this podcast week after week that's it all right onto my conversation with Luda Bella All right Luda Bella is back up fucking bag on the PODCAST president Dibella entertainment former HBO executive I had to drop that immediately philanthropy all around pissed all around good guy that's the last time I'm GonNA UCF Bomba Genius we call him here industry that is bizarre but today is like you call me we talk re regularly you talk to other writers regularly you had someone from your office calling me too ask about where this podcast was taking place and to connect me with you and you do this every so often you like have someone is this need them to have to do something in your office because because I spend inordinate amounts of time in my car you're you have to go through the process of your office having your office connected me you know what it's like like when Kramer gets that assistant on Seinfeld Jerry it says would you like to go to lunch yes there was a reason for it actually because because I'm too tightly wound to spend most of my time in the city so I'm I live in on Long Island so I'm in suburbia so when I come I come over here I'm in the car I I I'm a bad enough driver without texts were dialing while I'm driving can it's fair most people don't want to get in a car with me what I'm behind the wheel it's good to know if I was if I was playing with monopoly money like a lot the people in the industry right now would have a driver but I'm not in that situation how about that industry and how about that situation you are part of your WanNa get into the women's boxing you have on the show on Friday at the at the theater the garden but we are coming up on the one year anniversary of boxing on zone this is right around September twentieth and there's no question the streaming service has made an impact on the sport incredible economic impact yeah I mean collecting some of the top names spending lavishly on these fights and the flip side outside of Canelo they have not been able to put on the kind of pay per view shows that they have been eager to do so give me your impressions of the first year of Zone I mean they're having growing pains but the quality of the product if you're at combat sports fan look if you're combat sports fan you don't have UFC but Bella tour while there is a gap between UFC obscene or they are clearly a number two position as an outfit right now and in combat sports boxing the equality of the programming on a consistent basis right now on disown a year in is early high quality if you're a hard core fan you need to have zone the way at some point in the past you needed to have hbo you needed to have showtime you need they have disowned if you're that hard core boxing fan base the problem we have in boxing are hardcore fan base isn't enough to sustain a streaming service so you need to get into that really the the casual advance the casual combat sports fans and then you need to to open up your portfolio and have other sports but I think I think if you're looking at it in terms of overall quality it's great look there was some things I'll never stance and again this is no doubt on Eddie's a great promoter has a tremendous stable but they're mostly foreign fighters in the mostly British fighters far fighters they have American fighters but it's also strange that a US when disown USA launched they chose a a a foreign promoter to be you know the the anchor you know that being said week in and week out month in and month out right now you're getting product that is worth if you're a combat sports hardcore fan it's worth your nine or ten dollars a month okay but they need to be some I think you need some more of those events that are going to move the needle and Canelo obviously in Kovalyov there's an awful a lot of money is going to be spent on that in an attempt to move a needle you know triple Jesus here I've heard that there are still problems and still a reluctance on the part of Kim L. O. to say at any point that he's GonNa fight triple g which has to be very disappointing to the guys running disown I mean why the whole effort behind bringing triple j into the fold was to create that that you know mega fight you know with canal the Arab if I were triple Jesus competitive fight it's equality fight it's certainly a fight that if you were ready to dissolve sub and your boxing fan you've got to watch that fight you know what I mean and and and it's probably also the kind of fight that'll bring in some of those hard core fans that may not have already subscribed but the thing about a triple g David Schenker codified as it's not as the kind of fight that's going to draw a Lotta casuals not really the kind of fight that's going to go outside of that boxing universe boxing heads will be receptive but the overall sports fan maybe not so much how do you draw in the overall sports fan when you're at Hbo you had a platforms certainly to promote I mean look I actually thought there was a tremendous opportunity after the Joshua Ruiz fight to have a mega vet res was the New York Times cover stories all over the country late night talk shows this little fat Mexican can dude upsetting the apple cart you know beating the the guy that looks like a Greek sculpture I expected that rematch to take place honestly I really believe that would take place at the garden or in Vegas or someplace over here I never would have guessed Saudi Arabia the it's going to be hard to move the needle at the time it's going to be televised it's it's now early evening late afternoon in kind of event I mean that's got to be a major disappointment and it probably won't get American Media Look at about the fucking money because because a horrible regime looking to clean up its act spent a gazillion dollars to try to clean up their image and clean up you know and and and and standpoint of Eddie this wasn't a moral ethical thing it he went for the money would you end it probably not you know what I would have made it easier I gotta be honest I I've been approached going back almost thirty years from the time I started running called twenty seven years ago when I started running the boxing grandma. Hbo There were going back to that point of time regimes not just in in the Arab world would regimes that were looking to do exactly the same thing that wanted to set up meetings can you bring an HBO event there could you bring an event there we didn't take the matrix wasn't something we entertained I've had sort of the same attitude as a promoter I'm not gonNa say promoted a lot of heavyweight champion since I've been a promoter but I have had guys who are pay per view level fighters and major providers I have had approaches made I made it easy interesting take the meeting what I've done it here I don't think so honestly I really don't but but I'm not gonNA crucify someone or criticize them for doing something that a lot of corporate entities and a lot of people out there were doing it's a personal decision it's a matter of conscience up fifty nine fucking years old okay I don't have to do what I don't WanNa do do you know what I mean I mean I I'm I'm not the Kinda guy that flies private jets or or does crazy shit or types of Ferrari I I don't do that Kinda Shit so for me at this point in my life I make decisions Morris to what I'm comfortable with I got a life right now that if I didn't WanNa do this much longer I wouldn't have to yeah I mean I could go run my couple of baseball teams do what I wanted to I could probably birth retire fairly soon and not not because I'm rolling though but because I'm okay and and I look at things a little bit differently I don't want to do stuff that's GonNa make me ready look this already enough reasons if you work in combat sports particularly boxing assault doesn't match up to what you saw and you feel like taking a really hot shower for a long time you know so I I I I try not to things that that don't jive with with my own coat I think the argument you could make in tell me if you agree with this about him taking the fight in New York Las Vegas is that he wouldn't get the pot money that he got from Saudi Arabia but if he won in spectacular fashion I don't know how much value put on a lot of value restaurant if he would event would have been incredible in other words I believe you would have had you know most boxing events unfortunately we're not getting a lot of print media extent there is still print media you're not seeing sports page cover stories about even the biggest boxing events if you put John Joshua against Andy into the garden again I literally believe you would have had cover stories on the back pages of the New York Post the Daily News The New York Times sports section you would have seen major publicity all over.

"Lou Elisardo walked onto a stage in Seattle Washington and announced that he just left his job as an intelligence officer at the Pentagon where for several years he'd been at the helm of a previously unknown program that studied UFO's, the general reaction to that announcement was kind of ho hum. It didn't get a lot of coverage little bit from Leslie Kane, I think in the Huffington Post, and a TV story that that I wrote and other than that not much, but two months later, a NAMI of media coverage was initiated when the New York Times broke the story about the program that Luella Zondo had helmed for a period. The acronym was a tip. And then in the months that followed there were other revelations other little bits and pieces of information that surfaced about that program. A lot of expectations hopes among you. UFO researchers that there would be more revelations that maybe were on the brink of some kind of disclosure or confirmation. We also saw a trio of videos reportedly released from the Pentagon showing these encounters between US military warplanes and craft that of unknown origin, far more technologically superior than anything we've got it set off a whole lot of questions and some of the best work that's been done and digging into further revelations about this information came from the other side of the planet to Australian researchers longtime experience bloodhounds who have case these kinds of secrets and documents over the years, Paul dean and Keith bastard field will be joining me in a moment to give us their take on what we've learned what questions still need to be asked. And where this might be heading next. We'll be right back..

"Lou Jindo the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea. Faith in God, harnesses fear and pointed in the right direction. The direction is toward God fear of God becomes a healthy thing when you have faith in God with faith in God and godly fear that goes very well with faith people begin to see things again with a clear, I ended take things with a clear mind. It's a good thing to fear the devil. But you've got to know where he's at with faith in God, you know, where he's at the great thing about God is that he shows us where he's at where the devil is at and where we are at in relation to God. And to all the forces which arise to deceive into trouble. Is that great God sent his son Jesus Christ into the world. He really came. This story is there for all to hear all to read all to see their mysteries about God that none of us understands and mysteries about Christ that nobody can explain. But there's no mystery. About who Christ is. And what Christ did there's no mystery about who Christ is and what he is always doing. He died for the sins of the whole world. He did that for all of us. That's god. Doing his thing in his son. Jesus Christ for the sake of his son the great God forgives the sins of our humanity. Whatever they are. He forgives them. All he does this for the sake of his son who died for us as a sure sign that. God forgives the great God raised his son from the dead and gave him a name above every name that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow. It takes faith to bow. The knee did Jesus it takes face to ask God for forgiveness, and it takes faith to accept his forgiveness for the sake of Jesus Christ. It takes faith in Christ, which is not content just to say nice things about God and about Christ. But actually, bows. The knee before him. It takes pay to see yourself both as a Saint and a sinner in the sight of God saved by faith in God's great hot and moved in the right direction by a holy fear of God, which is true recognition of your own humanity along with love for God, which has plenty of room for wholesome all of his sovereign power. And his overwhelming grace all of which you see in his son Jesus Christ. Faith in God that he is truly a father.
