Power 5 conferences talking about no fall football
"The power Five college football conferences are trying to decide whether or not there will be a fall football season. The Pac 12 and Big 10 are seriously considering postponing the season. Meetings are scheduled vote expected soon. Among the chief concerns new studies showing the effects the Corona virus has on the heart. A group of players from all five conferences put out a statement saying they want to play but with mandated health procedures and the option to opt out, ESPN is Kirk Herb Street. This thing's not gonna happen, You know, as far as the Big 10 is concerned, but And you have the player movement way want to play the hashtag? We want to play. You have coaches involved in that. I don't know if it's gonna make much of a difference. It seems that the pact back 12 the Big 10 If you know if dominoes they're going to start to fall with with the power five from everything I've heard, it seems well. It will start in the next 24 hours to 48 hours with the Big 10 in the Pac 12 then I'll see what happens with the Big 12. The A C C. One thing we know for certain the SEC will be the last to hold out. Meanwhile, the Mat Conference canceled all fall Sports Saturday in the Mountain West Conference followed suit
Fresh "M. A. T" from Ordway, Merloni and Fauria
"Will be no fall sports sponsored fall Sports College football's not sponsored by the instantly, however, so A C C Big 12 sec can play they could determine their own champion because they do. Nick Bromberg covers college football for Yahoo sports. He joins us here on the progressive Guest line. Nik Mat Peralta aria. What's up? How are you? I'm good. Are you and Casey right now? I am. Okay. So you're in Big 12 country. Obviously, What's the reaction from Big 12 football fans that they're gonna have college football and their big 10 brethren? Not I think there's some That there's some cautious optimism. But I do think you know, everybody else kind of realize is still very tenuous and that you know, the Big 12 waited as long as they did just for a simple schedule. I think I kind of see what everybody else did, and you know If the situation were here, you know were also in the country because of the Jews just being two hours down the road and I 70. So there is excitement for football, but I think there is there is the understanding that you know If this goes sideway, then you know, we're gonna be looking stuck with Basically the Chiefs in Kansas City of their only football hope. Is it weird that Iowa is not playing? But Iowa State will Yeah, I think so. And you look at just how close Lincoln Nebraska is on a map to Kansas and Kansas State. And to me. The whole of the question is This is where we have to really press. I think all the conferences that would do our conversations right now would be more educated and engaging. And I think the online discourse, which obviously raising sometimes raising online discourse to a decent bar is a hard achievement, no matter what the topic is. But if all of these conferences released data that they were looking at and her make a decision, we could all kind of figure out, you know. Just what the decision making process is because, you know, I think a lot of people kind of gold impactful just followed with But the big tended on Tuesday, but I gotta give the Pac 12 Tana credit When they made their decision. They released their 10 page medical assessment and it was right in there. Basically lined out on the first page saying, Look, we've seen my own card itis in athletes. We are uncertain about the long term effects of it. This is a big big factor as to why we made the decision we make. What's wild about this current conversation? And I don't mean to boil this down to being the simplistic But you mentioned the medical stuff Nick into me. It feels like the Big 10 in the Pac 12 are saying, there's the unknown of what happens to an athlete who gets Cove in 19. So we're not comfortable running that risk in gambling and the other three conference they're saying we don't know what the risk is. When I've player contracts Covert 19 But working aside in the fact that nothing really serious is gonna happen is that fair? E. I think in a very basic sense, and that is the problem with it. It would almost have to dive into 17 layers when you have this conversation because It's part of one thing. That's part of another and you know you look it. I do definitely think that the long term effects the potential room to the next are something that you know the big 12. The sea in the sea. You are definitely going to consider here. Oh, and I also do think. That this is a decision. That is a little bit different. If the double A as a whole has been a little bit more progressive when it comes to you, athlete right over the last 15 years. I mean start Ed O'Bannon lawsuit filed basic over 10 years ago, and it finally took them. Help just now get around figuring name, image and likeness and what students could become pit on their image, right? But I truly do think that this is a different decision. If Student athletes. I don't like that term. But if athletes are not designated student athletes and their designated mohr towards an employee, because quite frankly, I do think that there is a lot Of risk mitigation, glory, moon and risk mitigation. Very good. Don't get me wrong, But I also think that athletes status of amateurs is going to lead to the most conservative of risk mitigation decisions from conferences like we have seen in the Pac 12 and a victim. When we are talking games in November, when we're expecting whatever you want to call it. Second way flu cold weather whatever may happen here. Do you think we're gonna get through a college football season think it's possible to play a whole year? I'll be happily surprised, quite frankly. And you know all the happily surprised if we're not having discussions in two weeks here three weeks. I think it's a fair way to say it because right now it's on August 14. So three weeks basically put the Labor Day weekend, which would be the original start. Of the college football season had everything going on schedule and we saw all conferences like yes, you see in the big 12 new things back to September 26 all the Big 12 a place unknown Kind game because of what we potentially see in terms of on campus spread at the school's when students arrived campus basically over the next week and 1/2 So, you know, I think if we start seeing explosion, just like Rikers broadcast ratio knows that day, you know, he had 30 players have pot in a lot of people has been a lot of reporting out there that it's basically for one party. So you know, if you have these situations where we're at college campuses that starts to trickle into the football program, I think Gilligan have we may be having the same discussion of the pact all those other conferences here in three weeks. The thing that I've watched in what I think is kind of not to back up the parents like the Iowa parents who wrote the letter to the Big 10. But are you surprised that schools are going to allow intramurals to happen so you can play sports? If you're on campus, you can play sports. At schools have said You can't play intercollegiate athletics. Yes, I know, because I do think that it's hard to draw the linear line and what is acceptable and what isn't Because you're right. You know, we're talking about the conversation of you know how students are. Football players are another athlete or more. Are safer in there football facilities because of the strict math, quarrying and social distancing protocols. That may be true, But at the same time we all know that football players are not spending every waking moment of their by every single day. Gain their football facility. And so you look at this being on campus is more dangerous, and but it's not safe enough to play football in a safe environment for that time you're there. Why can't you do other things? Why Quick, Some quiet be held as scheduled in person. What could you have Campus buildings open. Why are you going to pack a bunch of kids in the dorm? And I can I think this also goes back to which has to be considered here is the fact that these are Students unsuitable that always wants to know that these kids are not treated should not be treated any differently. They're the same type of student, thereby health so bubbling them or even doing something. Some type of double to separate them and insulate them from the rest of the campus would harder blur that line of just what purpose of college athletics athletic stir to make money for university. I mean, isn't that going down with the ship? Isn't that just sticking so solid year guns you're going to destroy because the only way in my mind that college basketball and your in Casey, so obviously, you know the importance of college basketball. They bubble. The college athletes. They've got to put him in a bubble. They gotta stick him somewhere. I mean, I made mention that the Pac 12 The Mountain West Conference had come to Vegas. I think the biggie should goto Mohegan Sun. I think the Pac 12 to take along with the Big 12. Take a hard look at some casinos in the Texas and Oklahoma areas and Oklahoma more than Texas. But Trying to find a way, go to ST Louis and put him in a casino in ST Louis. Try to find a way because basketball's got 20 people in there Traveling party football's got 200 is a huge difference. I mean, are they willing to just sacrifice everything because they want to hold that line off? These are not. You know, these kids are like everybody else when we know that they're not Yes, that's and that's what kind of I think it's that This is what drives me Crazy is.

Okay she went no, I'm dying apparently made them laugh. You Bronte sisters.
Is It Time to Ditch Your Silicone Cookware?
"This speak. Our topic was suggested by nutrition diva listener who wrote nonstick silicone cookware, especially for baking seems really useful, but is it safe and also I'd like to stop using my plastic steamer that I rely on for steaming vegetables in the microwave. So, what type of container do you suggest? Well, let me to. To start by explaining what silicone is silicone type of synthetic rubber made from silicon, which is a naturally occurring element that's abundant in rock and sand, silicon or silica is used to make mortar glass cement bricks, and concrete and silicon is also used as a semiconductor in computers and cellphones, and that's why the Santa Clara Valley Near. San Francisco California is often referred to as Silicon Valley. Now silicon can also be modified or polymer. Is D- into a rubbery material? And that's what we call silicone silicone is not exactly new kitchens. Your grandmother probably used silicone based rubber spatulas. More recently it's been used to make nonstick cake and Muffin Pans, baking mats or liners and a whole range of other cooking gear. Now silicone cookie has several advantages. It's very lightweight flexible. It's easy to clean stain resistant, and nothing sticks to it. You can put it in the freezer in the dishwasher in the microwave or the oven, and it comes in all kinds of fun, bright colors,
AP Switches to Sony
"This is digital story podcast number, seven, forty, nine July, twenty, eighth, two, thousand and twenty today's theme is. Resting on your laurels can hurt you. AP Switches to Sony. I'm Derek Story. Prior to the murless revolution, cannon had the camera industry pinned to the Mat. I remember attending an invite only precedent at. Back in the day and marveling at their confidence and swagger, and for good reason, they were dominant. But soon after serious tiger FY began to evolve away from the DS or and cannon was slow to innovate. In just last week, the Associated Press announced they were switching to Sony for all their photography and video work. That's Today's top story on the TV S. photography podcast. Change has been in the air for quite some time and I. Just you know you think back on things you know little stories that you read here things that you hear there and pretty soon they start to add up to something. Big and something big has definitely happened with the Associated Press deciding to switch from cannon which they were using primarily of for their work to Sony for everything for photography and video the whole Enchilada. Now those little things I was talking about four example. I remember reading a story a few months ago. About it was a hearing the government hearing and DSL. Ours were deemed too noisy to shoot during the proceedings, so the DSL are photographers were asked to do not shoot except at specific times, so they were basically controlled when they could take a picture. On the other hand, the murless shooter. Room time and it was a Sony shooter ironically. was able to shoot at will, because he was able to set his camera so that it made no noise whatsoever and I. Remember Thinking about that story at the time, I'm going. Wow, look out for this right. If you're in the world of journalism, look out for this and sure enough Not that long after we get this big announcement now many of us. US Are Mere Lewis shooters. We can imagine the benefits of these cameras over DSL. Lars during the daily grind of reporting I mean don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure this out. murless cameras are lighter. They're more agile and they are definitely quieter as I just talked about so if you had to carry a bank all day every day, would you choose? Realistically, what would you choose? At the same time while you know, we're sort of figuring out that we value our backs in our shelters and our necks, Sony continued to add necessary pieces to complete the professional photographer puzzle. They launched their professional service which by the way associated. Press has expressed great confidence in Sony's ability to deliver professional services onsite during major events, so they launched that and they got it going in. They did it well enough to get the. The confidence of the Associated Press they put long white aperture telephoto lenses in the roadmap, and they carefully integrated stills and video into the same camera system, and this becomes really one of the important aspects of a peace decision to make the switch and I have some quotes for you coming up here in just a minute about a week ago, they officially announced a AP did that. They're switching to the Sony Alpha system. The quote with hundreds of staff photographers and videographers around the world and thousands of freelancers who contribute the is a massive entrusted source that covers both the expectant and unexpected, and they're going to do that with Sony cameras so when I have here I, did some research about the discussion you know basically most of the quotes are from a director of photography, also the deputy managing editor, so David is the director of Photography and Darryl is the deputy managing editor and from two different places. We're going to start out with some comments that were captured by the director of photography. On an article in DP. Review DP review, and I have the link to that article in the show notes. The articles titled were confident that they can deliver. We talk with a piece director of photography about the switch to Sony the link is in the show notes there. Here's a few of the. Comment on them and again. This is the director of photography. We like the idea of having the color quality in the image quality, being close to the same between stills and video equipment, so if a still soccer for help out a video colleague with a little filming or B roll. It would fit in the at it in. If we were to pull a grab frame from a four K. video camera, it would have the same basic feel as a photograph from stills camera.
Covid-19 and the future of tennis
"Folks and welcome once again to the tennis podcast in a particular welcome to David that you heard in our Intri, they are. kickstarter backers of Oz and today. They're going to be our guest. Editors for listener questions special, which means that we will have to remember how to make podcast because it's been a couple of weeks we need to. remember opinions and all sorts of things. Yes, there are questions about the ultimate tennis showdown mat-su. Dust off your knuckles. He's easily in fighting mood today's map because as I look at him here on my laptop screen. He is wearing his Fulham shirt. You Resplendent Matt. Early on the Fulham, sure we didn't kick off for another ten hours or so, but yes quite quite nervous today, but wearing them colors, mets team Fulham. Playing in the first leg of the playoffs, this is stage one three in their attempt to get promoted back to another season of misery in the primarily. Alongside David, he's already confirmed. Be Subjecting himself to a year of misery in the primarily next season. I e the night before I watched. My, team just stumble over the finish line I watched. What fit in the Premier League Neil four down against Manchester ccn about half an hour and Really, did change my mind as to whether I wanted to go open all. It made me. It made me think you know my. Maybe, think back to when we were when we were booking and planning a trip to the French Open. and. Planning our early days. shedule around your. Travel to the playoff finals. Wembley I said, would it be okay if I trip back to London for the final during the French? Open and we decided that that would be content gold, yes. And then the universe conspired against us, and here we are six months later, making more lockdown content. Enjoy everyone. But we love to listen to questions ones, don't we? It gives us a chance to rant and rave and. Give! Opinions about things and it is drew David. They've. Picked out the best of the questions from social media they've they've come up with some of their own as well. And a good questions quite meaty, so proposals fakes ready. Oh Yeah Yeah. Matt's never looked already had a haircut. He's yeah. What do we think of the haircut? It's pretty dramatic as he did. Go four and a half months without touching. Any haircut would have been quite dramatic because. Quite. Did You keep the her? No. As I said God. What A WEIRD QUESTION OKAY! To lockdown, everybody being on. We'll obviously quite a lot of questions that have come in about lockdown about covert about how it's going to affect tennis. Is Kind of unavoidable to to address all of those issues. And try and speculate about a completely unpredictable. Because frankly that's what the situation has been in instill is but. We make our money by predicting the unpredictable say goes. It? I I question. will go with the something covid related. Is the players responsibility to do what safe for themselves or is it? The tournaments responsibility to guarantee safety regarding covert. A Nice easy one. To to to ease yourselves and he wants to take that. Why I don't think it is possible to guarantee anything really you know. The the tournaments rinsed Francis the US Open. It is incumbent upon them to create the safest environment possible and to convince the plaza, the bubble that they are creating and the passage they're creating into that bubble is a secure as possible, but ultimately the players have got to decide whether that's something that they are prepared to do whether. They're comfortable to do whether they're. Also prepared to stay within an environment like that because they cannot be breaking the protocol. We've seen in world team. Tennis. They from what it seems like did a pretty decent job of creating a bubble. Daniel Collins decided to go elsewhere. for I, I mean she. She did say it seems that she needed some treatment for her. What's the condition? She has rheumatoid arthritis which Kim. You know okay. I sympathize with her, but. She brought the bubble and therefore got thrown out a world team tennis. We saw Griego Dimitrov who tested positive for. ovid's during the until. gave an interview last night and He's had a really terrible time with illness I. Probably mild symptoms relatively speaking and yet he said he was in bed for three weeks and he's still feeling the effects of it now so. Players have got to make the call as to how much of a risk they're prepared to take. HOW COMFORTABLE LEAD! Enduring, cyber, there is it is impossible to guarantee safety I think.
Becoming a home carer during a pandemic
"3.3 million home health workers such as nurses, therapists and personal care AIDS provide a range of medical and daily living services to nearly 12 million people around the US, However, the covert pandemic is putting pressure on this workforce already in crisis due to shortages. Especially in some states that are experiencing an increase in covert cases. Alexandra Harrell is the founder of an organization called Patty and Ricky. And she offers tips on how family members can assist their loved ones during their new role as a caregiver during the pandemic really hard time for individuals with disabilities or chronic health conditions, illnesses they're scared that people home health care is coming to their homes. Because they're scared to Kobe and many family members have decided to have their family members were just abilities, chronic condition their elderly parents live with that. So there's a lot of new caregivers right now. And those, of course, are being experienced. You know the new caregivers that they're not used to this, I guess because they're they're usually out at work or wherever they go every day. And so now they're at home with the person who needs to care right? Because they're new to the caregiving, which is a new role for them can be really challenging at first. You know they used to having maybe they're assisted living facility, which many have been throughout the country, so it's just been a really hard time, but I do have some chips. Kind of support papers up. I was a kid, my mom Patty, Patty, Patty, with my mom. Okay? And he was really fashionable. Really Cool on me. What? Brain cancer. When I was 19 years old. It was just me and her and I came home from college and so caretaker. And it wasn't during a pandemic so he can be difficult. But it's not. You know, it was definitely a challenging time.

You're financially for shop for them a grocery store. Just different ways to utilize friend technology, Teo and for help if they need to make sure that you still care about taking care of themselves. Yeah, I think it's really huge. I back my mom definitely was ignored my own use. So I believe that you know, caregivers. Make sure to take that personal time. Careful, only is well taken care of herself. It's going to take care of someone else.
Bioethicist Jessica Flanigan On Libertarian Views Toward Face Mask Laws
"I'm going to stay on the subject of face mask a little longer as you probably know government orders to wear some kind of face covering whether outdoors or indoors or triggering hostility and some quarters, even though in the absence of a vaccine for covert 19 Health experts say face coverings remain one of the best tools to fight the spread on Wednesday, Georgia's governor Bryant can't even banned local governments for enforcing these laws. Now, critics of these laws generally say these mask orders violate their right to individual liberty, so we wanted to go a little bit deeper on this argument, which is generally described as libertarian. We've called on Jessica Flanagan for this. She teaches bio ethics at the University of Richmond and is the author of the book. Pharmaceutical Freedom. Why Patients have a right to self medicate and she is with us now, Professor Flanagan. Welcome. Thank you for joining us. Thank you. So let me just establish a few things before we start our conversation. We're not going to focus on people who don't take the virus seriously because it is serious. I mean, at least twice as many people have already died from this virus as dying a terrible year of the common flu, and we're also going to skip past people who say they're not wearing a mass because they somehow think it shows their support for President Trump. If they don't wear masks that's not Focus here. We want to focus on the core idea of individual liberty versus the common good and health context. So just start there. If you would, I mean is there a basic libertarian view about public health measures like face masks? I think that there's two questions about this. The first is should people wear masks and stay home? And I think they're the libertarian answer is yes, because libertarians believe, or they should believe that people should wear masks because infecting someone with a harmful illness violates their Bali rights. Self ownership in Bali rights are Foundational to libertarianism. So masks make it less likely that people will violate these rights. So all libertarians should support mask wearing and staying home when it's possible. Second question is harder, though, should the government forced mask mandates and lockdowns and there the answer is more. It depends. The government should only restrict people's freedom and private spaces when it's necessary, and when the benefits of enforcing it exceed the cost of enforcing it. So some cases of Preventing people from exposing other peoples to risks are less problematic. For example, the government enforces speed limits on public roads. But mask mandates or things like lockdowns would applied a private businesses as well. And in those cases, there's a higher burden of proof that the government would need toe. Clear to establish that there really should be a mandate. But it's not as clear in some contacts that that burden of proof of the mat. How has it not been met? When you have more than 130,000 people have already died? This is highly contagious. It's a respiratory virus. People can transmit it without even knowing that they are themselves sick. That's how has that bird not been met? I have salubrious. As I said, I think everybody should wear a mask and people just social distance for sure. But it's not as if enforcing the law is free of any kind of costs. And so in order to enforce the law that's limiting people's authority toe run. Their businesses are Acting certainly is in private spaces. Not we're not talking about the government spaces where I think a mass mandate is totally fine been private contexts. They should be able to show that they have tried less bird in some ways of addressing the virus first. So, for example, Putting more resources behind expanding access to test a medical care provided, more pp. Investing contact. Tracing FDA only approved pool testing yesterday so public officials can require massed on government property and they could buy a lot of other ways to mitigate the virus. But how do you respond to the fact that it is a fact that certain communities, particularly black brown, Native American people have demonstrated to be far more vulnerable for a whole array of reason, so that we've well discussed at this point than other groups? One of the things that were conversations we're starting to see now. Is a real sense that people who are not as deeply affected as they have been on the aggregate just don't care or that they have sort of abandoned a sense of moral responsibility to other people just because they don't look like them and because they are not them or not related to them. How do you respond to that? That's part of the reason that I think that we should really weigh the risks on both sides because On one hand, the virus is disproportionately harmful to marginalized communities, but on the other hand, expanding people's vulnerability to police power that expansion of legal interference or the threat of law enforcement. Is also going to potentially be disproportionately harmful to people who are marginalized or people who lack social power. And so when we're making these types of risk benefit judgments, we should consider the risks of enforcement in the discriminatory effects of law enforcement or that this proportion harms of law enforcement. Alongside the disproportionate harms of the virus that communities who are more marginalized.

The men's final especially is the The flying ants have the memo that Wimbledon didn't happen. they are out in force which is. A Wimbledon tradition. Hadn't done well, that's. Today's the first I've I've probably missed it and I think maybe the weather is part of that. And we've we've just watched a match with an amazing atmosphere which I think probably also stirs that feeling a little bit, and probably because it's the last day of what would have been Wimbledon and us is the last day of Wimbledon relived for now. What a pointed addendum to that sentence David. Wouldn't next one planned for us. When should we brace also? Developing! Certain Olympic week looming on the horizon A. I feel like I.

"All right, let's talk to Mike. He is a father of two an entrepreneur who lives in New Jersey and with as much serious stuff. As we covered, we also talked about how much fun it is to go out and party as a sober person. Let's get to it. Hi, Mike, how are you? I'm great. Thanks for having me yeah of course. I'm thrilled to get to know you a little bit. Bit Better and learn more about your story. I know that it's a topic. We haven't really touched on yet. So you're our first. I'm psyched to have you here. Wonderful. Glad to be the first well. I tell us your name and your sobriety date, and would you have described yourself as a high or a low functioning drinker? My name is Mike Russell my sobriety date is February two thousand eighteen I'm not a big day tracker, but I could look it up in my phone. Actually you know I don I would. Consider myself. like a high functioning person like not very. I wasn't a daily drinker. Drinks problem once every other week. And my challenge was been shrinking. Got It got it and tell us a little bit about you. Now you know what you do for a living where you live age family anything like that I'm happily married I have two wonderful kids I live in Hoboken New Jersey outside new, York City and currently relocated to our summer home. I would have been. I don't know how long I've been here. Because kind of all blurs together like we're, we're. We're living here. We're in time. So. You know in Margate. City New Jersey about a block from the beach. which is awesome, and then I have also my family and my sister, my sister in law, my brother law and their two kids. Here's while so we a lively wonderful home. Very lucky. Circumstances Nice Little Coruna OAC's. Yeah. Let's get into it. Let's let's about your story, and if you would tell us in ten minutes or less, you drink how long it was a problem and why you decided to stop High School I. Think I. I didn't drink a lot. I drank little bit It wasn't a big part of my life very much into sports, student, government and right between high school and college. I just out of nowhere. came down with a non Hodgkin's lymphoma and is very surprising to me. traumatic obviously, and I checked into hospital had wonderful doctors in went through chemotherapy at I, was very fortunate to. Be Able to go to college a semester late and come out in full recovery, but I think things kind of change for me there and when I did get to college, I started to drink pretty frequently and I would say that was like the point when. I started to drink a law you know throughout college pretty consistent. In then I graduated moved to Manhattan, and I had a job in banking, and I was trying to Ford my rent so I had a side hustle in Bayliss. Promotions, which again weeds bit more drinking within two years, I had the nightlife promotions business was actually producing more income from you than my job, so I left my job and I went into that industry time for about eight years, and that was eight years more shrinking, and towards the end I met my wife, and I wanted to kind of have a career change and I knew if I wanted to have a family and it was pretty clear she wanted. To Change? In order to have a family I did eventually I was thought. Hey, you know this is probably circumstantial. It'll go away, but I ended up moving into technology, which is eventually where I wanted to be I wasn't a simple transition, but I got there and the drinking go away, just kind of morphed in I from there was. A trigger drinker I wasn't drinking. Galley I didn't have cravings. I never thought about drinking but I'd hit a trigger. You know out with friends out to dinner on vacation and say I'm GonNa have one or two drinks. Inevitably, it was countless number of drinks, and that was my challenge.

"All of that I call my spiritual director and I'm like Hey Christine. Lee You read we read this word over me. I've been sitting a lot with idea of rast. And I was studying the Scripture, oh. What is it? It's in Hebron. He talks about the the word of God being alive and full of energy and Mike. You know what I'm weary I'm going to have her. Read the word over me for energy. And, so she read it, and she started at verse five. And talks about Jesus. He was weary from traveling all day, and he sat down at the well at just really touched my heart. The idea that the god of the universe was weary to you know he understood what it met just. You know what long let's just sit down. Let's just sit down at the well, so that really spoke to me. Then I'm going to be looking at my notes I going from memory here. But the idea of this again I've been sitting with rest this idea of rest in Kim. You gave me this quote on this week. As a culture. We tend to define rest as really an anesthesia. Right like when I think about rusty and I think Oh. Let's just get on social media and scroll, or let's watch net flicks, or let's drink some caffeine. You know kind of his nominees anesthesia, and that's not rest, because afterwards still exhausted, and I'm still tired, and that is reminds me of going to the wealthy Geo. says. If you drink this water, you're going to be thirsty again and again and again in each time I. Try to knock out or I try to. To emphasize my weariness, it doesn't work. I'm still tired guys. I'm still weary and so this idea of Jesus in me as Lebanon water like he s source and how many times I just turned to him. I just need to stop my day. Be Aware in my day like Oh. You're going here. You're trying to rest or social media, or you're trying to rescue distraction, and instead to go to the source to the living water that well. Let's just bubbling up inside of me, so those are my thoughts on this I. Own a job in Kerry just. That! Thrill the word. Israel means struggle. And so this this place that God is the God of the struggle. Just what you described when we're weary. The struggle between going between what we know and what is easy. To what it's really. Refreshing. It's like the natural and the supernatural yeah. You're talking about. Yeah I the natural, but that doesn't satisfy. This morning I sat with this. In what I've been finding, I've often said that the word. Has Allowed me to hear the we've. Within a conversation. To get underneath it to the rid of it. And so this morning Like it in a whole bunch of translations and was trying to just stick with the the John. Four fourteen, not not going to the history because I'm you guys do such a great job of that of setting it up and so I just began to write and put pen to paper assuring with Kerry that. Lord's Really creative thing in me when it comes to just How did you carry creative? Creative communications now a spiritual gifting test a couple of years ago, and this thing popped up and I never even heard about it before, but my top spiritual gift, creative communication and I think based on what I read on. It is the gift of being able to communicate eight criminally I'd just define using the definition, but perhaps I'm spreading the gospel or ways to connect with God in ways that are call. So on that note I just began to write I. Guess my own paraphrase or Of the well, and so I'm going to read that and then maybe dig into a little bit more because this is how he spoke to me. Between the wave of the words whether it be the king, James the Nasdaq the ESP the message the passion translation it these were the wave of the words that I heard today, so you can receive this or not receive it. like I said not edited real-time Journal here, so just take a breath.

Almost comatose and holding gaping wounds at worst. For some, this well is our first line of defense. For others. It's our last resort. And so we walk him slowly to the clearing where this particular well stands. There's something different about this well. Something that feels like home. So slide up close. To the edge of this well. Then listen carefully. You might be able to hear the stream that feeds the source of nourishment. Listen closer. And you might hear the everlasting.

Is Pleasant and easy to bear. So. I think I'm. We've all been. Conditioned to be somebody's. Our parents wanted us to be somebody. Our teachers. Our spouses. Maybe the culture wanted us to be somebody and we tried to work really hard to the enough to be worthy to feel like we're okay. To manage others however us. We hide to do that really well, and we begin to stitch this garment. Together or an arm or a mask? We begin to squeeze ourselves into this carpet. I like to see it as a garment that's been created by culture. By ourselves by the people around us, even by our faith. By religiosity. And so we can form ourselves into a garment.

Jews it's important to Christians it's important to the Samaritans in for hundreds and hundreds of years. It provided water. It provided life. But Christ offers us a different kind of life. What's super interesting when you look at Samaritans, Jesus is so counterculture. By an Wendy talked about this just by talking to the woman, but also by being in Samaria in Samaria. Just lots of background on scenario that I won't dive into, but I encourage you to. They followed all the Jewish traditions it was Jews intermarried with the Syrians and initially Assyrians brought in their gods and their Their rituals, but within a couple of centuries they had assimilated become. WOULD THEY CONSIDER JEWISH? And they were in. Israel, but yet Judah considered themselves the Jews. And held the Samaritans in such. Low Esteem. And Jesus offers the living water is there and that's the West Bank and what I find interesting you talk about holding grudges. This grudge that continues the day that the people of the West Bank the Palestinians. Are More closely genetically related to Jews. Then they are Muslims. Or the Arabs in the area there more. Related to the Jews and it's just so interesting to me that that nothing is by mistake. We talked about that before the podcast started that nothing is a mistake that everything about this story is important that Jesus. Gets our attention. With the important. He is the God of Israel. But he is the God. Of everyone and. That's where island with it is that well? The natural always precedes the Superman the Bible and look. Adam before Jesus. Kane before. Able Jacob. Or saw before, Jacob, the natural always precedes. We had this natural well. That is of such great importance in than we have the water that Jesus offers. Could you clarify a little bit I? Watched you mean by? Her see supernatural. The natural world how we tried think of Sarah and Abraham. Hagar Ishmael. And Isaac that we cripe contorts things and do things on our own in this natural world, and then he ushers in the supernatural that transformation that Wendy talks about that transmutation, where we go from the natural to the supernatural, so we had this living water that provided water to everyone for hundreds and hundreds of years, but he offers water that is for eternity. Can I just say one thing about Jacob's. Read this at eight. No have their source here, but it said that the Jews regarded water from flowing spring as living water and the water. Jacobs well was seepage are dead water. It's seeped down from the surface versus the living. Water Back Fountain up that gushing that bringing up, and so has like with the Holy Spirit. It's this it dwelling inside us and. Moving up an out I just thought that was fascinating. Is actually so I read actually. I didn't read this I had it read over mate. I just really tight this week. I've been weary I've just just been a little tired. Little little fed up. Spirit does feels a little downtrodden. I think it's just were in. The world is right now in.

"I. And I'm going the brought this one yet I was in another bursts. I was in fourteen four, so. Profoundly it is very similar to this. But. We are in John for fourteen. But feel free to look at fourteen four as well, so here's Here's the setup we got. A woman at a well and Jesus meeting woman at the well as over fourteen jumps inlet Jesus. Saying, but if anyone drinks the living water, I give them they will never thirst again, and I will be forever satisfied when you drink the water I e view, it becomes a gushing out. Of the Holy Spirit, springing up in flooding us with endless life with endless life and I. Again the truth that God does something in me first before he ever asked me to do something publicly even to be able to come to the table to bring this versus shape. There so much Innis for me. Personally first of all. I can't not come from my own personal experience of course coming to crisis, the on adult education, walking through these, versus from that portion of my life, this spoke to me profoundly for here was Jesus meeting this woman at the well at if you know the whole story of the woman and her station in life in her her all the things about her him meeting her specifically. Specifically at the well at the time of day that he did in the way that he did, and all of the things were so counter, cultural were so religiously like almost forbid were so all the things all the things that totally disqualified her personally and bats who Jesus came to, and so I saw myself in that in that God King Jesus came to me where I was. He didn't say clean yourself up. Get yourself to church in clean all that up and then I'll talk to you know he did. The absolute opposite is just like he does did with this woman and that he met her exactly where she was. And that it wasn't filled with fanfare, it wasn't filled with. Witness and all of the things it was just this intimate quiet moment around a place of supply around a reference point that made sense her around a inner pane in all of the things that she personally was and. They have this incredible conversation in a way that made cultural sense, but then also in a personal way which again spoke to me in that God speaks to us so intimately personally exactly where we are now, you mean since right where we are now speaks to us the way that we're going to understand it right now, and then invites us to come closer. That's grace. This is such an expression of grace to me in that got always meets roby are. On offended by ASS, he sees it anyways, and he comes right into that, and then he breathed space. He didn't put any pressure on her. Whatsoever. You brought his spacious Nance. He didn't bring condemnation all the things. He literally breathes spacious nece into this conversation, and then he invites her to come closer. He invites her with the invitation of himself of surrendering her life to him, and then receiving the Holy Spirit, and that's what he's talking to you when it comes to verse fourteen. And I love that when when he's talking about this living water that as much as the conversation was external. Hunan brings it now into the spiritual aspect and this breed so much life into me and into all of us in that the Holy Spirit when. When we give our life to Christ, we receive the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is living water therefore where the Holy Spirit dwells, there is life, and if I am receiving that, there is always life available to me in my spirit, so when things come against me when things rise up within knee when things that feel crowded and Hungary and and Entsch. All I all this promise. Right here this reality the Streams Living Water this gushing fountain of Holy, Spirit I sneeze return to it. I just need a partner with it. I just need to come into. Get take a great big drank in refresh and wrestle, and then allow it to empower me then to go, because that's what happens next right exactly with this woman, and so this is such a personal intimate. Encounter and then reality and that reality happens each and every day. Like how many times can we each say? That were thirsty for something more. That we feel like an outcast that we feel like we're Talkin Noonday. living like there's a lot heat going on here. We got a heat and desolation, and all the things possible around that in your own personal world. In how many times do we feel like to? How many times do I feel like that? And all I need is to tap into this gushing fountain. The Holy Spirit Gez spring out and flooding me. Personally endless life. Thanks very much desire. Not just eternally, but in my today to. And so that. Is just such a love letter in such an intimate love letter. Look forward to hearing what you guys have. I could talk about it. Hope PODCAST, but I love year, absolutely hell. The Lord speaks to you into yourself ladies. While Wendy I actually renamed the story and brought it into modern times and I named the story looking for love in all the wrong places which pretty much describes my life and so I I read out of the message I loved all the translations that I loved. It says anyone who drinks water I will give will never thirst, not ever the water I give will be an Artesian Spring within gushing fountains of endless life and you you talked about. The Gushing fountains and this story is just it's just so telling about my life and where? I love when we say that he came to meet us. Has I think that's so important that when you said we don't have to clean ourselves up like he's just for us. In Savas thinking about how lately in our listeners can't see my hands, but I have really been dealing with dryness in this parche at feeling very parts, and I was reminded as I was reading the story about moving. Kind of jump around here, but moving to our land about eight years ago and do you remember the Beverly Hillbillies? Theme Song. Okay and sell it, it says. Up from the ground came a bubbling brew while we didn't strike oil. That would have been nice, but we need it upon some people call them tanks. Some people call them small lights, depending on what part of the country you're in, and so the the purpose to get the bulldozer people out was to dig Ryan to end. Then pray for rain to fill this hand up. The cattle could drink well. They start digging in up from the ground comes bubbling brew. Except it was water, there was a spring. Under the place that we started digging. And so I remember the guy come to the door like we hit water. And why I tell that story is because. There are in Texas we have periods were in in one of those right now where it just doesn't rain in, so you just see the palms just slowly slowly going bats..

I usually like the day after we record the last podcast I'll look toward next week and just start chewing on the verge in this verse just. Wasn't feeling it. Until I started. Digging in which is the reason we do, dig in. You know because. There's just something to Pique your interest in. In most of the translations it says world don't conform to this world, but the word is actually age and impulse time when you consider who he was speaking to. He was speaking to the Greeks. The Greeks were very much about rational thought. Just the rational mind to use reason, it was all about using reason and Paul was saying. That if you use your proper mind, your discerning, what is good in what is acceptable and what is perfect in that is God's will those things and that is reason. You're not being reactionary when you're putting your mind on the things of God, you are being reflective in if it's good. God. In this time of rational thoughts i. that's when I started to feel inspired. Because that is this age as well in the Word Age, the word age is eon. You know any on is. But it's also the same word that anewy is the word in its to breathe or to blow. It's not the same word as Holy Spirit and what it is in the life of a man. It comes from Sanskrit. What most of the audience doesn't know is Sanskrit is one of the oldest languages in the world in Greek and Latin are based on Sanskrit so I'm always befuddled when people are so scared of using Sanskrit Yoga, and so forth because that's where it comes from, but the word is body, which means life force power. Not to conform? To what's happening in our lifetime right here? Not to conform that. We talked about last week as far as a pattern not to conform to this pattern so pattern should we be conforming to the original pattern original design? An Paul talks about the I was reading a commentary that says Escola Eschaton, logical study in the word literally translates to last study. When people talk about in times, well, what are in times in times is just the beginning again, right? There's no time it's either beginning or end. Maya Angelou has this quote? Once you better.

I need to be shooting that back out to the world, all of those things and to me. That's what transformation looks like mean Can someone look in someone? Stand over there and say she's just not the person. That she used to be, she's not conforming to all those things the worldly ways because it's just so much better. Ma I got chills right now because it's just so much better to be in his presence. And to be transformed, a believers live is just so full of joy and believe me. There are those downs right wearing a down right now, and that's why Jesus gives us those scriptures at. He got weary. He questioned his father. This week as we move into resurrection Sunday Tomorrow Night Good Friday. If it's your will take this cup. That's it so good. Pam. So taken by what you said about transformation from the inside out, I was brought to matthew chapter seventeen verses one through eight. I'm not GonNa read the whole thing, but the idea when he was on the mountain. And he took that James and John with him. Yes. And it says. Jesus took Peter. And the brothers James and John and lead them to a high mountain, his appearance change from the inside out right before their eyes. Oh. My Gosh I'm probably going to cry. And just the idea. Of being change from the inside out. I so desperately need to be changed from the inside out. My thinking has conformed even if it's the world, but just their starting lies I believe about myself I was reading yesterday a little snippet of the ground on a social four. Which is my number. And, there's this belief I'm not that special. A lot of us think this, but there's this belief in me that there's something wrong with me. That I I truly believe there's something wrong with me, but really the only thing that's wrong with me is believing that there's something wrong with me and so how that is You guys can't see. My listeners can't see, but everyone's like raising their hands and shaking like. Yes, that's the truth. And, so there's a tendency. For people like me to self sabotage because we believe we won't fit in. There's something wrong, so therefore will push people away. It's this whole lie of believing. There's something wrong, and that's the only thing is believing the lie. And so yesterday, I was just really entering into like I. Desperately need to be transformed. I desperately need a changing from the inside out. Because the way I think is just wrong. It's just wrong. Unless something changes, it will always be wrong. That that believe in if ally and so I was drawn to Philippians chapter four Paul wrote it and he was saying this is what I want you to meditate on. Things that are beautiful things that are true things that are praiseworthy things that are reputable things that are noble, and that's when Wendy were talking about participating. Here's our chance. We get to participate in the transformation so instead of me believing there's something inherently wrong with me that whoever I compare myself to I'll be locking and found one team if I choose not. Not to believe that and instead focus on what's beautiful, but God loves me. That I'm a treasure to focus on the things that are praiseworthy, and not the things to be cursed, and that is the beautiful opportunity of transformation, so not just conforming to the world's patterns that maybe even conforming to the patterns inside yourself that that you were believing that aren't true..

"So for some of us, we haven't experienced love appropriately in this world and we're afraid of love. where it's painful to be left. or we have a different filter of what the altar is. And so that would be my invitation for our listeners is ask the Lord Alter looks like. What does it look like to climb on climate? Climb on up. And and placed ourselves as living. On the altar. Before God and allow him to renew our body. Our mind our spirit. Daily! And notice when you want to crawl off. Because, the love feels like too much. It might feel it too much. It's like so good you WANNA run away. It may be that filter thing. You're not receiving it as the filter that it is his filter. So that's kind of where I hung out with. It was that it's like like Wendy said. The Holy Spirit that does renewing. Its by his love and from there. It's it's really about submission, right? We submit to his love. From that place we obey. And obedience doesn't feel like it's lorded odor over. Ask like it has been in the world. oftentimes men and women have lorded obedience, and those are two things over s so all of a sudden `obedient comes out of surrendering to love or submitting to laugh, and then we see peace, and our mind is being renewed because we're at home. We're experiencing Shalom. That's that's why I went. You always bring a word girl. Always bring your word. Go back to. That word Meta more. METAMORPHOSE said was reading one definition it said the process, by which that on the inside shows four to the outside, such that everyone can see when I asked myself that question about how are we transformed? You guys have already talked about by the renewing of the mind. I started thinking about how? This. Looking at Jesus changes us in that the change comes through. Being in the word to see who he is right. Now you can't see my picture that I drew here, but I'm very visual and I was thinking about reflecting on the Lord's glory and that. That we stand between him, and those who do not know him, and that I'm a very different person that was years ago, and we talk a lot about this someone of my Bible study groups. It's like what is anybody. GonNa believe me because I'm so not who I used to be this when I when I get in his word, we were before this podcast started. I talked about rabbit trails. My prayer was this morning is just to help me to to gaze upon you. The, rabbit trails for me. Are that every time I read something? I JUST WANNA. Go a little bit further with him. And I was telling my husband the other day we were sitting on the swing and carry knows that my husband is an artist and. They look at things very differently and out. We're sitting on the swing. And he said how when I look at at the trees. Here's what I'm seeing I thought well, that's that high level right? you start their area like CD's trees, but you don't really know what the Bark looks like or the trees are away, but as you continue to gauge. Up On that and get closer and closer and closer you start to see. You know what the Bark looks like you start to see. Are the leaves fuzzy or are they shiny? Are they rough? It just really for a mental picture for me was thinking about getting that close to God that the only way that I'm going to be able to be transformed. In to that glory to glory that talks about an second Corinthians three eighteen, which took me there to you know it's this. Moving closer to him, seen who he s O in my picture..

"Empower each one of us to discern God's will, as we live a beautiful life. Satisfying and perfect and as I. Good he us endlessly. May We know him? Maybe get even more curious. I'll piggyback on Wendy. A little bit and I was in and our Sp. Again I. Really liked the spy now. I wanted to start in twelve one. Because I felt like I kept getting stuck on places like I needed a little bit of extra. And so this is this is what it says in an our SSD. I appeal to you, therefore brothers and sisters. By the mercies of guide to present your bodies as living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God. Which is your spiritual worship? Do not be conformed. To this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds. So that you may discern. What is the will of God? What good and acceptable imperfect. I kinda got stuck in one. which will lead me to to? Therefore right therefore. We are saved by grace through Christ. And we are new creatures. And, if that is true then. Let's live this new resurrection life with Gusto. Simply by putting our bodies. As living sacrifices on the altar. And so when I say that. I start to freak out a little bit because right where my mind goes to alter. Is A scary place. And as I kind of took that to the Lord. He's like Oh. No! That's not what the altar looks like. It looks like climbing up into my arms, and he holding you in wrapping you back up with my loving kindness. And being there with me. That is that alter? The Altar love. And from that place. We won't WanNA conform to the ways of this world. because his loving kindness smells like tastes, like feels like nothing else on this earth nothing. And so that's the place where our mind is renewed. In in those encounters and his word. The problem with being a living sacrifice. A! TENDENCY TO WANNA climb off,.

"Because then once we do that, we'll be able to test and approve what God's will is his good pleasing imperfect perfect will. Did anyone due to the passion translation. Wendy or whoever did it you? Would you go next because I was gonna read it at the end because I just think that that dislike sums up everything in just like this beautiful verbiage so? I would love to hear what the Lord said to you. I love that. I have passion. And it says stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think this loan power you to discern God's will, as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes. And what? He really encouraged me in this face, and an spoke so much of what you said Jan about imitation, and that sort of thing, but he also showed me. It's not an us and them kind of way of doing things this world Christian is not that as much as. The Stop imitating ideals opinions of the culture around you as much as that's an absolute directive. There's there's especially right now. This is where he's putting this in context for today in where we're all at. Being at home, being in the situation where an being in the cultures that were in being this time in history. I asked him to really speak to me about this today for all of us, and what he really just beautifully breathe, invited me to see. Was that no matter where we are. The spirit of fear comes for us right that whole. Were anxious. Nervous were foreboding can be a real thing. Fear can be a real thing. No matter for Christian or not right like that parts isn't the key at that point. Fear comes for all of us, and so what he showed me was because we have the Holy Spirit. The invitation is to receive Holy Spirit. How do you do that? You come to Christ, and so for those that are listening that much..

"But you know that that time of stepping away that transformation stepping away from what was in laying something down in understanding that there's going to be something greater, and that's what he promises in this transformation, so do not conform to the patterns of this world, but be transformed right, so yeah, I was thinking about that. Oh The you know I think there's a place on social media for us to be inspired in even just like together in community. We were born to be together to be in community whether it's like this on On podcast, but to connect right so i. don't think that that's what the Lord saying. He's not saying. don't be with. People. Don't have people that inspire you and. Let it be an opportunity to look within and see what the Lord's asking you to drop. So I was thinking about this in a. you're doing this to doing this on instagram. Challenge right now to Yoga Challenge and I was thinking when I was reading his verse in like. Is this not something I should be doing in my conforming to the patterns of the world? You know recreating this disillusion that I can do this. When really it's, I can do, but it takes so much. It's like this low, but one thing that I have learned through. This whole thing is that I have chronic patterns so I'm in this yoga. Challenge and I'm starting to instead of just looking at the end picture of what it looks like in that. Picture where I can edit it out I'm GonNa look at the whole thing, the whole video in its entirety with all my flaws with all my mistakes with all my dysfunction and I'm going to say hey, you know what I think I can work on. This I'm going to take the time. We have so much. We are so empowered to bring each other up to raise each other up, but we have to come at it with humility, and with honesty, and not trying to be Be Another version of someone else just like come ourselves right and then in that..

"Um Is Jenny again, and I have the privilege of leading us in today this is one of my life, versus and since Wendy mentioned that we all know each other through yoga. This was actually the verse that I got I little packet that you and this was my verse that was in my packet, so it stays in my Bible, and it's just like one of my life verses so I'll read it for you guys this morning are today or tonight. Whatever time it is that you're listening to this, but this is I think it's the new version that I have. Just Romans to twelve. Very familiar verse, right? Wealth to. Clear, it's depressing. All right, so my verse is. Romans twelve to. And it's one of those really familiar verses that most of us have heard and then I. Don't know about you, but I tend to like when it's averse that I've heard a million times I. don't wait to hear from Lord I just assume I. Know What he's GonNa say. Right, but a this is from the version, but it's do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you'll be able to test and approve what God's will. What sorry? What God's will is his good pleasing imperfect will. You. Know this idea of conforming I think it's so relevant 'cause we live in this. Especially, it drives me crazy. I don't know about you guys, but do you ever feel like you cannot come up with an original idea everything that I say everything that I. Think everything that I do. I can look and I can sign that somebody else has said it before done it. It before if I'm decorating, wearing a certain thing, you can find somebody. Else's already done it right and we have gotten into this like bad habit. I think of just copycat in each other, because it's so or in this technological world where all these images are constantly being thrown at us, it's so easy to not even know doing it, but keep doing it just keep. Conforming to what's out there? Right and I was thinking about it. And how on this word conform is I? Read this as it says it's. It's an outward expression of something that's not really within. We owe the perfect example for me is like. If I tried to follow something.
