On trespassing charges are minor charges are still are they held in jail without due process. I don't believe anybody's been denied your processor. Mhm. It's amazing. He doesn't know anything. But he doesn't believe anybody has been denied due process and that interesting, Mr Producer He's not keeping track. You know there's 500 cases. Well, that's 100 more than we knew before 500. 500. 500 cases. He doesn't really keep track of who's in solitary confirmed. Everybody knows they've all received due process. I want to thank those two congressmen for pressing Where's the Washington compost in the New York Slim's, they had no problem. With this none whatsoever. No problem at all.

Reading the Story Upside Down, There Likely Were Bats Being Studied in the Wuhan Lab
"We've been lied to every step of the way from people involved and who have experienced with the funding that was used to fund the Wuhan lab that I believe could have could have created a bioweapon and I believe at a minimum, engaged in gain a function research and created the supercharged coronavirus. People involved in it have not told us the truth from the start. We have laid out a case over the course of the last two weeks. How This is the biggest scandal of our time that a foreign nuclear powered enemy the United States may have used our tax dollars to create a super virus that wiped out millions of people is bar none. The biggest story of our time. And we will never get to the truth because we haven't yet learned to read the media upside down. You have to learn to read these media stories upside down when you do that, like the author of This Wall Street Journal piece says, we confess as we can finally get to the truth. So learning how to do that. You see this Peter Dash AC tweet again. The guy who ran the Eco Health Alliance and gave some of this taxpayer money through Eco health alliance to the Wuhan Institute. He says. Hey, there were no bats in the Wuhan lab. For genetic analysis. We just released them back into the lamp. Now, if you're practicing with the Wall Street Journal author says, And he says, when you're learning to read propaganda, there's an element of truth, but read it upside down now. Producer Jim What would that mean? If Peter Dashnak told you there are no bats in the Wuhan lab, and you're reading it upside down? Producer? Jim What does that mean to you? Quick test. Mhm. I was actually asking a question I could drink some of that tea and you answer too fast. Yes, it means just the
"mhm" Discussed on Progressive Talk 1350 AM
"Mhm Mhm. When people come in to get their vaccines, they're asking for Moderna or fighter vaccines. They're not asking for the Johnson and Johnson. This is a big issue because the Vaccines have just three months shelf. Joining us now is Laura Strickler, investigative reporter at NBC News. Thanks for joining us, Laura Thanks for having me wanted to talk about these Johnson and Johnson vaccines. A lot of these doses are set to expire pretty soon. A lot of states are sitting on these stockpiles. Can't really move them. They can't donate them. There's pretty strict rules surrounding this, So we're kind of just stuck with them for right now. So, Laura, what are we seeing with Johnson and Johnson doses? Yes, That's exactly right. So, basically, if you recall back in April, the FDA so that there would be a pause on giving out the Johnson and Johnson because there were some concerns about safety, they you know, As you know, they went ahead and said they are safe to be given out. But that really caused the enthusiasm around getting the Johnson and Johnson shot to go down. So what state officials have been telling me is that when people come in to get their vaccines, they're asking for Moderna or fighter vaccines. They're not asking for the Johnson and Johnson. So it's piling up and this is a big issue because the Vaccines have just three months shelf life. So the FDA you know is in talks and weighing the science around this as to whether or not they should extend the shelf life changed the expiration date on the Johnson and Johnson vaccines that are all over the country. And that will help. You know if someone comes in and says yes, I want the J and J vaccine. But what state officials are telling me is that the real issue here is that there isn't that much demand for these vaccines. Specifically Johnson and Johnson. So they there's about, according to CDC. There's about 21 million that have been shipped out only about 53% of those have made it into people's arms. The rest are to be administered. Certainly, State officials have been raising alarm bells about this with the White House for the last 3 to 4 weeks. As you mentioned for the FDA to extend the time for to expire the last three months in the fridge, think up to a year. Maybe if they're frozen, But can they be in the fridge aerator than Frozen, then re thought, you know, that's a lot of consideration to go through. Exactly. And I think that that's why you see, um, you know, just yesterday Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and pouring people in Ohio to come in and get the J and J Vaccine. So that they do not have to just to put them to waste they now have until June 23rd on 200,000 doses. Um and that's that's very significant, so the states are doing everything they can to continue to ramp up interest in getting people vaccinated. As you said, Like general interest in getting vaccinated is going down because the folks who are going to get it and made that decision to go get it. And that's why we're seeing some of these more creative efforts in like West Virginia. They just announced a new vaccine lottery where they're giving away money. Um, hunting weapons and very popular right now. Yeah, yes, Yes, they are. The United States just announced they're buying 500 million Pfizer shots to share globally. So a lot of these states are looking at these Johnson and Johnson vaccines that they have in their stockpiles and kind of want to do something similar, maybe share them abroad as well. But some of the strict rules surrounding that really don't allow for that you mentioned in the article. Haiti is an opportunity here where they desperately need these vaccines. They're getting some of the AstraZeneca vaccines, but You know, in a pinch, these Johnson and Johnson vaccines could also be helpful there. Yes, And actually, even just since our story was published, I got contacted by Haitian Doctors Association asking, you know, there's some way we can get some of these Johnson and Johnson vaccines and part of that is because They are. They do have two concerns around vaccine hesitancy in the country. And so they really believe that one shot would be ideal because you have, you know a healthcare infrastructure. Certainly nowhere near as developed as it is in the US and Haiti is only a two hour flight from Miami. It would require a significant logistical effort to get all of these Johnson and Johnson vaccines from around the country and ship them to a place like Haiti. Where, as of today they have not administered a single vaccine. So are we seeing anything from the White House? Covid response team? Anything from the administration that have signaled Hey, this is an issue. We want to handle it soon. Not yet, And what we have heard from state officials is that they've been raising these alarms with the White House for the last 3 to 4 weeks saying, Look, you know, we have this expiration made on the horizon. We'd like to see something happen. I do think that the White House's response in terms of this 500 million is that is X huge step forward for vaccine diplomacy and for you know, the US to be able to Help other countries manage their covid. But you know, the Pfizer vaccine is like I said, it's two shots, so it's a little bit more difficult for countries where they don't have that kind of Healthcare infrastructure where they can text someone you know it's time for your follow up appointment and things like that. Laura Strickler investigative reporter at NBC News. Thank you very much for joining us. You bet. Thank you for having me.
The Connnection Between AG Barr's Departure and China's Blackmail on Biden, Congress Officials
"As well and tell me if you can see what's going on. So I look at the next article. It's from Axios. It says exclusive. Suspected Chinese spy targeted California politicians Bethany Allen and Zach Dorfman. He said. Look at the date which for those of you watching on Fox Nation home, I highlighted right there. There you go. Bam! Wrestling by paper flip there. The date on that is December 8th of 2020. Mhm. I still wasn't picking it up. I said Yes. Send me what else? What else yet? He said, I want to look at this one more. This third article. Maybe now it'll all start to make sense. Third article, CNN, Evan Perez, Pamela Brown federal criminal investigation and a hunter. Biden focuses on his business dealings in China. I was like, Yes, yes, I think I got. Would I picking up what you're putting down right now? The fighting 279. I'm getting it Daddio, he said. Look at the date on the CNN piece about Hunter Biden in China. There's a common thread here. It's December 10 2020. Mm. Checking out the dates of these seemingly unrelated events. My source says to me. I think there's something there. Is it possible that on the way out the door Before Bill Barr resigned. In December of 2020. He obviously knew he was going to leave, probably as early as November, if not earlier. Is it possible that Bill Barr New China had a 47 FT High stack of blackmail paperwork on Hunter Biden, Eric Swalwell and maybe other members of Congress.

"Mhm. Yeah. What's happening. Thank you. Joining us happy Tuesday, Always love talking to Marcus Thompson and Tom subscriber. It always great stuff in the athletic. He joins us, courtesy of the Yuma Gas line. What's happening? What is good homies, Everything's good. Yeah, Everything's good. Good NBA playoffs Dara more He's getting the book. The fucking good. Yeah, I I guess there are more. He's not good, but other than that, everything's good. Kevin Durant looked pretty good. It's pretty good. Jeez, pretty good. Incredible. You know, the one finals matchup we didn't get. We got Katie against LBJ a couple of times. But he was hurt and the Toronto series and we didn't see him. He got on the court for a quarter. But he wasn't himself and co. I looks just like, Oh, I again, are we Are we heading towards a Brooklyn Clippers finals, and then we could have those two great players squared off markets. Could that be happening? It feels like the Clippers figured out something right. Like maybe they have their breakthrough, and now they can get to be in the team. We thought, I don't know if I'm ready to give it to yet, but but it feels like it. I'm too busy on this Phoenix bandwagon, though, To be honest, this is a Chris Paul Redemption tour. So you're gonna get Devin Booker and Chris Paul and DeAndre Ayton. Uh, you know, getting worked by Kevin Durant carry Jay's art that that's obvious is going down. You like the sons and the Nets in the finals. Rd, um, are already Yeah, I'm right with the sons that actually kind of want really to to make it to the finals, to be honest, but, uh, the way Brooklyn looks out to anybody to beat them. Uh, they just they just look incredible. And it's insane. Like Blake Griffin. Clearly with the Germany real quick and got the prp and his knee or something, because he's like Duncan now again, like I don't know what happened at Landry. Sham. It doesn't miss Joe Harris doesn't best like they got a Mike James. I've never even heard of before. I was like, Who is this? Mike James? This ain't the old Mike James. And yeah, there's a new my James. Apparently, he's bawling like this team is unstoppable. So they they're going to win it all. Give it to him now. Right from a bay area warrior fan perspective. Uh, who do we root for? Because Chris Paul was forever the antagonist here in a couple of different spots. You wrote a great piece on the great Dame dropping the 55. But he went out that night. You can maybe pull for him. I always root for Durant because he's so good. From Oakland Warrior perspective would What do we pull for here? Do we want to win? Oh, man, That is a tough one. If you're a warriors fan, you definitely want the Jazz to beat the Clippers. Right? You need the Clippers to completely fall apart because I feel like Pieces there that the warriors need is on the clippers, etc. He bomber like that made that thing. So you need them to fall apart. Uh, So what's the piece from the Clippers? You want? Who do you want Their Paul? Paul? George? Paul, Really? You want him on this team and all his Oh, Becky. Can you imagine how good he be? Is the third option? Uh, he'd be incredible. He'd be incredible. Yeah. You need a little dropper to you in a little spicy. This, uh you know who you root for your full family. Chef currently. Yeah. Yeah, you for Seth carry, uh, How do you not like the oil and beat right? Everybody likes to be, uh, you know, they there's a lot of there's a lot of Steph Curry love on ability. You know, generally be his friends with, uh, bid sevens. You know if somebody who has been fifth photograph that or cool with Steph when he was a kid like there's a lot of there's a lot of They love on Philly. So I'm gonna go it. Yeah, with all cereal that will get back. Therefore, that's a tough one. That's a tough car or Katie got arrival. Katie, he gave me He gave me or your fans going to pull for Katie. Marcus. I do his tail everything. Warriors. You think they are? Yeah, People love Katie, but I think a lot of people like indie today, Okay? Yeah. Yeah, I think Or you know what everybody exactly like they do now we're sure right? Like no, I've never had a problem with Katie. I think that's the kind of sentiment you get this know how we like 80? I don't think nobody ever not like them. I think people I think people most T v right. I think people have a problem with Katie I. Well, he has a problem with Jay Williams right now. But, uh, I I always think that he likes to do create this drama stuff almost like Jordan did where it was like, because he wants to have a chip on his shoulder and he wanted to be pissed off at somebody. It seems like I mean, I I think the problem wasn't like whether or not people like Katie. I think it was just a matter of degrees, right? It was like Who staff like it was how much love and I was being distributed, right? I don't think it was ever like we don't like the guy. It was like, Yo, people just are Head over heels about Steph Curry. So I don't I don't think there was any every every animosity or whatever it was. I think that went away when he came back if you towards Achilles, trying to win a championship Like that was that Was it like, Well, you can't ask for more from the dude. He put his whole career on the line. Uh, you know, to try to win a title, So I think that I think that when I don't think there was any bad love Katie from the fans perspectives to begin with. And then when if there was anything is gone. I think people love Katie. All right, so it it was four years are into the offseason now are already worried about what they're going to do and how they rebuild it. But the one thing that's interesting to me is Steph Curry. Gone for that Olympic ring. You know the the gold medal, which he was deprived because of the, uh, the knee injury in 2016, and now we're here, and I don't even know if the games are going to actually go off, but it sounds like they're going to push forward, but Well, Team USA. Send athletes there. Should they send LeBron saying he's out and steps? 50 50. You're tight with curry. What are you? What are you hearing about? Steph going to Tokyo this summer. I think you know the I'm with you. I don't even know if this is going to happen right? Like I think that number one. I do think. I do think he will do it. I still think this is part of his bucket lift and also keep in mind. He had a lot of time. The rest like he didn't play from. Was in March until December. So, uh, he was pretty fresh. There is something like, Hey, you played a lot of minutes, right? Maybe you wanna arrest but Going to get a fool off season. I think we suspect they'll get a full off season this year, so he should be fine, but I think he's going to. I think he's at least going to go to camp. In Las Vegas, right, and I think the people who will play like I think that's where we will find out. Like who actually does it. You got you kind of got to read the room and see, but they'll have a little mini camp in July in Vegas, and we'll all be watching to see if this thing actually happens. Or if it does happen, and it's safe. I do think if it is a Not being that safe. He might not do it just because, like, you know, you know, you know all the issues that worry about the kids worried about him, But I do feel like this is something he wants to do is still on his bucket list to do And he's got this easy like music at the health. He's healthy. He didn't play. And he played a lot this season. But it was after, like, nine months off stuff. My my, My smart money is on stuff doing it. If it happens if it actually goes down. Is that a big deal? Because everybody remember Mark Cuban years ago didn't want his guys playing. Is it a big deal that Steph plays in the Olympics from rest standpoint? I do. I mean, clearly the lawyers think about it right And he's 33 right..

VP Harris Heading To Mexico, Guatemala Amid Migration Surge
"Arrives in Guatemala Sunday night. It's her first trip to Central America since President Biden assigned her to tackle the surge in migration from the region. She plans to meet with the presidents of Guatemala and Mexico, along with business and civic leaders. NPR's Carrie Kahn reports from Mexico City. This won't be the first time Vice President Harris Meats, Mexico's leader and the rest Manuel Lopez overdose. Mhm. They have talked a few times virtually like this video call last month. And just yesterday, Harris called Lopez over door to let him know the U. S. Is sending Mexico one million covid 19 vaccines. He tweeted that was very kind of her to call. Their first face to face meeting, however, might be tougher. U. S and Mexico relations have hit some bumps lately, especially when it comes to sharing security, intelligence and U. S funding of Mexican free speech groups. Carlos Heredia, Mexican economist at the Center for Research in Teaching and Economics, says Lopez over door was very comfortable with Donald Trump, mostly because the former president stayed out of Mexico's affairs. Trump only cared about Mexico stopping Central American migrants from getting to the U. S. So now it's different. And the president of Mexico does not feel comfortable dealing with a neighbor that is opinionated and has A lot to say about issues that should be of common interest. Both countries have found common ground when it comes to migration, saying they want to attack the root causes. Like lack of economic opportunities in corruption. The Biden administration has repeatedly called Mexico an essential partner in achieving that goal. But tonight you G in. Lopez, a researcher at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, says both countries talk that humanitarian talk but continued to attack the problem only with police and the military, especially in Mexico.
Did a Wuhan Lab Plot Biological Warfare?
"Is I don't want to be first. I want to be right. And I want to get as close to write on a story as I can. Maybe some details here and there later on, we'll have to go polish him up a little bit. If something changes will always make a correction if we have to, But I don't like to leap out in front of potentially explosive stories because you can be wrong and Given the history of fake news media people I'm not going to be one of them. But I've been sitting on something for a couple days have been gathering information, and I'm not over selling it when I tell you that it is absolutely mind blowing Let me just get to the bottom line up front. And then we're going to walk through and I'm gonna make a case for you Just don't go anywhere the whole three hours. I'm just asking you for a personal favor. Please don't go anywhere because I'm going to need you to hang around for this. Bottom line up front. They're a criminal investigation going on into the lab leak origins and a potential cover up. Mhm. Oh, that's not it. You may say that sounds pretty serious. Some of you may have heard that some of you may have never heard that before. Not just as there are criminal investigation going on into a potential cover up. Don't worry. I'm gonna produce you. I'm just throwing this out there here. I'm not just tossing this out there anyway, so I waited. But secondly Is the lab. Lee cover up that there may be a criminal investigation into Are they covering up the creation? Of a bioweapon. By the Chinese government. Yeah. Whoa, t. Oh, baby time out. Time out. It's not a 22nd, either. We're taking a full time out. That's a really Whole thing to say.

Counting Briberies in Elections
"My name is nicholas vermont. I'm a second year student from your berlin and germany. Where i'm part of the research. Group makes in computational complexity led by professor. Well thank you so much for coming on the show. Could you tell us a little bit more about your phd work. What specific areas in complexity. Are you focused on. So i'm mostly working on questions. From the area of collective decision making and decision decision-making someone relative for different settings or scenario spare group of come together and have different than maybe conflicting opinions about assignments. And where we want to of find compromise alternative for not that makes everyone happy tour. Let's say fair extent and i am lies. Questions from this area from mostly yet stogie says complexity theoretical and algorithmic point of view. I'm aware that there are some aspects of multi agent systems that frame it in a game. Theoretic context may be decision theoretic approaches. Does that overlap. Or is that separate from your interest so we are not really doing mhm. Let's say close related to classical multi agent systems but. Interestingly kind of the work that i am doing this collective decision theory field. This summer became a sub field of mostly agent system. At least if you look at the conference with we published usually published multi agent system conferences and agents. System is are always Netflix which we have in mind. So a lot of these collective decision making scenarios also hidden in classically in some multi agent systems. Some of this as well highlighted in the main paper. I want to invite you on to discuss. Which is titled on the robustness of winners counting briberies in elections a lot of things to unpack there. I guess maybe this is the first time i ever had a bribery formalized a mathematical way. So could we start with that. How do we quantify bribery so when it comes to elections bribery is kind of a pretty natural and also white developments to problem and what we aim here for is the model that we have in mind is we have to get like and we have bribe who wants to achieve a second goal in the clintons election. It's usually win the election or preventing some from winning village. So this the golden that the bribery hasn't bribe knows kind of richly. And then we give the bribery typically a given budget. So let's say he's allowed to delete ten votes. And then the computational question that we have the mind is possible for the bribe's to pick like ten votes in the election smartly into delete them such that he achieved his goal for example making the candidate. It wouldn't be gotcha. So i'm you know we've just finished up an election my country here in the us. There was a republican and a democrat. Who were running an in many other people. If you very resource and could manipulate the elections may be you could have pulled it towards one of the two major party winners but if you had done enough manipulation third party One that would have been quite unprecedented by our country standards. How do we measure that distance. That i like. It's intuitively there. How can we quantify something like that. So this question. I told you about mind and you can also obviously ask for the minimum number of operations at the bribery needs. So if you have again election my goal and then the question is now how much budget to any any votes to to be able to enter to be able to delete to realize michael and if you do this for every can that separately you will like it for every candidate birth. I mean for the initially winning candidate. The number will be zero because he will have to change anything for all the other candidates. Have booby probably zero. Because i'm not initially winning and thereby also somehow discover ranking of the candidates. So this gives you a feeling for how far away someone is from winning or losing election with respect to the operations that you allowed so for example leading or acting or some to find the votes that well. Let's talk a little bit about the voting mechanics. Paper covers two different ways. That people might vote plurality and boorda voting could you go into how those systems operate and maybe in the context of those how this manipulation takes place so the two mechanisms we cover relative. Boorda both special case of so-called scoring based voting rolls. And the idea here in scoring based woods is that every voter is allowed to give points to candidates and in the candidate with the highest number of points wins the election and for example in property. I'm allowed to give one point my most preferred candidate so it's pretty simple. It's also typically how bellicosity simply mark your most preferred candidate in there but he gets a point from your vote. Border is a little bit more tricky by a border over. In the body election we tank the preference relation rankings albatross ranked the candidates s an input. And then we awards if we have any candidates are what n. Minus one points to the first candidates to the most preferred candidate in minus two points to the second most preferred candidate Three points the set must be for the end zone and as we accumulate the points even to the mall just by the candidates The candidate with the highest score simply winds

So you know if y'all have been following the therapy for black girl social media pages you know that we have a feature call help assist assist out every now and then there will be a question that is lots of lots of engagement in people request. Oh we need to episode on this so a couple of weeks ago there was. There's a question about how do you heal in the environment that hurts you and a very poignant question you know sisters. I thought engaged beautifully with the question but I definitely wanted to bring into the pie has so that we can open enough or a further discussion and talk about like what this might look like in terms of help in Therapy Melissa. Of course you were the first person I thought some very grateful for you to be back with us. Thank you so much happening that you know. I have to be infiltrates now. I think ashes my phone and have dealt with personally and that I deal with you know with micronutrients on You know we're talking about generational stuff right intergenerational trauma as well plays a role in this and so it's important for us understand who then our life that impact that those people have one the roles that we choose to have those relationships are I think are and what I'm finding with my open the clients but our work with as you Chore War By. We assume that we need to have the same roles relationship. People don't have and you know that's not always the case you get to switch it up. MHM So this about like how you might even know how to switch it up right because I feel like so much of the conversation and of course there does does become appointed sometimes where the relationship does completely need to be dissolved today. But I hear you saying that there may be a way to kind of switch up the roles change things a little bit so that you can still engage in relationships without completely dissolving them for sure for sure I think the hardest thing important to think about it with me. The different types of abuse by we might be having an experience with someone who we love but because we define abuse or mistreatment and you know beverly specific harms. We don't think of the relationship as being hurtful or abuse or we can't quite figure around. Wow this person as parting us. Because they're not doing the things that we really was an island view and be is the goal sexual actual it can be emotional. It can be verbal it can be financial and it can also be spiritual and we need to understand that there are different contact Zac annual what defines something has traumatic for you or abuse of you is the impact that it has on you emotionally and or physically so oh you know hurt and harm as it needs to be defined by these very rare category with regard to the other person's behavior is you know we have to give ourselves permission to acknowledge how we feel they somehow somebody else. Hey being anti consul sit with that in mind we always want to give ourselves awesome opportunity to go inward and to own our own Hanukah dismissing
Protocol president Tammy Wincup on applying the Politico playbook to tech coverage
"Welcome to the digital podcast Brian. Marcy and today I'm joined by Tammy link-up Tammy is the president of protocol which is a new tech publication which is from the publishers politico. Tammy welcome thank you. Thanks for coming in so explain a little bit. This is not the politico go for tech. It is not good We're super excited to have launched protocol yesterday and it is coming coming from the publisher of Politico Robert Alberton But it has a very very different focus. And so you know I I love to dive into what you know. What what are those one of those pieces you know? We are focused exclusively on technology on the people the power and the politics of Technology Eh. And this idea was generated by Robert over a year ago and really made a decision to actually make it they separate and bring a separate leadership team in a different ethos and focus but build on you know the the spectacular reputation and spectacular spectacular journey. That politico has had and that we are really lucky to kind of be able to build on that brand. But it's it's a separate view on the world suffered audience audience so explain why that even matters like that. It's not just the spin off from politico because there's look there's a lot of advantages to having a new publication that comes out of publication with a reputation Track record and a lot of other things going forward so why does it. I don't know what does it make sense to. It'd be like this is a different company. Well I I get the best of both worlds right. I have the ability to To look at the amazing track record and the amazing using could've story that politico has built And some of that DNA. I absolutely hope to replicate. You're not like recreating the technology stack and all the stuff right. I mean media's heart already why why why. Why would anyone duplicate this stuff? Well I think some of the pieces the best. Look I come from an industry that says you so you take the best of what others having you build upon it and some of that tech stack is just absolutely brilliant and others. You know it was You know it's a thirteen year old old company so we're looking at tools and opportunities and frankly services down the road that we're going to be able to build on. I think that that is actually you know as frankly. Frankly an entrepreneur in this That's actually really exciting to be able to be told that you can you know you can build using all of the muscle muscle memory of being building a really successful digital media company politico and then go and actually focus on a new audience that I now so just to to to stay on this for a little bit the structure so it's not like the editorial team is different but then all the other services are the exact same from politico like it's not like a shared sales force correct nothing short business and there's more advantages because there are a lot of I mean look media is you know particularly subscale media You know that eats into all the margins so explain why it's it's worth recreating a lot of stuff. I get thirteen years old. And maybe some of the Ad Tech Stacks not the best at this point because there's just a lot of style they've invested a lot in I. I believe that there's this top notch and look my sense is that we will. We will use a lot of what they have from a best practices perspective I think you actually have to start not with if You know not with the operation itself you actually have to start. I believe with what we're trying to accomplish. Which is the business in Tech Community that insider cider community is very very different than politics and policy insider community What they care about what they wanna read? Every day it's very business and industry industry focus piece And so you know my belief. Is that the vision of what she wanted. Accomplish has to start with that and then build both the editorial side and the business side for the audience and customer. You know I come from the tech world and come with viewpoint that you have to start with your customer career audience first and then build the editorial the content of the services that you want for that And so some of that is a playbook that politico GEICO has and has deployed wildly successfully and You know we will. We will take that and try and do the same but there are pieces of it. That technology the executive actually wants different. So you say technology executive do you mean an executive at a technology company or an executive at a non quote quote Unquote Technology Company that is dealing with the after effects of technology which is every executive absolutely that is precisely why we know the moment is right for new publications Pacific. lyod tack you. You just nailed it right there. Is that the intersection. It is no longer my adult lifetime. Having spent spent a good chunk of my career in technology it is changed to your point rent of being an industry. Vertical Call Technology L. Story to truly infiltrating and being a part in a Matrix Organization of other industries. Right so having come from Fintech or attack look at health check and so we actually really feel like. There's a gap of where we can go in terms of bridging this kind of tack and mainstream industries and and again from my viewpoint You know there are two book ends of what's out there right now. There is You know you're a business business either attack on enterprise and consumer tack or you're in a big vertical as leader trying to innovate with tack and you're trying to figure out on a daily basis. What's going going on? You either have things that are written for a mass audience for which on the topics that I care about on on. Ai and five G.. Gee and quantum and what's going to happen in Fintech in terms of payment services and things like that you don't get the depth necessarily that you need to actually make decisions for Your Business MHM on the flip side having come from venture backed businesses. It was very very difficult if you weren't a Unicorn or if you're not you know. Thank Company Day to actually find yourself being talked about in the media Unless you're raising money or unless you are announcing some widget okay and so it's not going to be product driven. Obviously there's a lot of quote unquote technology publications over the years where really venture capital Publication correct There's no shortage of people writing about the latest air pods or whatever So you're GonNa leave that aside And obviously technology is now now I. I think it's sort of moved into a few different. I mean it's obviously it's a horizontal story within the changing nature of all industries On the it doesn't side and then there's there's Society Angle And then obviously the government angle which I know you're still going to be covering has a great intersection You you know with with political on that piece. I think he'll you know you'll see us. So there's overlap there's absolutely I the article about California Privacy Law and people scrambling. Yeah try to get rewritten. I mean that could easily be employed right. I think it's interesting like that's a perfect story or even if you look at Linda stories yesterday around ethicists in salesforce. Right I think that's well first. Let's talk about the policy piece rate. That's a story that has policy implications. Has You know state implications. I think the story was very much could be seen on in either publication potentially uh-huh. I think what's fascinating about some of the stories that you saw yesterday on our launch day like Linda Story. Now this is You know those are thorny topics. Those are not bullet point topics. Those are bullet points to we occasionally since I like this You know that's a story that mark. Benny off retreated yesterday. And it. You know it was a story about salesforce but it wasn't necessarily you know it's a tricky issue and I think that that's that's the point on tech right now tech is no longer in in its infancy where we have the promise of kind of all it. Could you know could be. It is a full blown adult and it's it's messy and I think to talk about you know we have to actually go into some of these details around the people Around the politics because suddenly mature quote quote Unquote Power Center. That's having unintended consequences. That of course it is like that. That's that's where it is but we want to. Actually we WANNA hang in those issues and and and and cover them up and you saw the gaps. I guess because I think when you came out Obviously a lot of people say. Oh there's a lot of tech publications and understand Dan and honestly a lot of the stuff I just ignore. Because it's like it depends on how you execute like really like I mean there's always room for new media brand. I feel like I can't think of an area where there are is an room for one. You just have to do better right at the end of the day. We got to have a different Lens so the Lens. That protocol is bringing to this massive Asif issue like how would you sum it up. Yeah I think it's about audience focus and scope Were not writing for everyone right. Just like politico doesn't right or you know is really focused on the decision-makers now if I'm a decision maker in a C. Suite You know are. Are you trying to explain that a little bit. So you're are you. Are you writing to help them do their jobs better or are you helping them. Sort of unpacked these gigantic thorny societal governmental whole like Issues my belief is that if we do that second one right you are helping them do their job better particularly if you're if you're taking If you're taking topics and not just giving them cursory looks so for example. The today we launched a new product called braintrust The question of the week where we go out and actually ask experts parts around that topic That is actually really important because at the end of the day technologies nauseous about the product right. It's about the people making decisions visions in terms of that and the breath of that conversation. If you're sitting in a thin services company or a healthcare company and you're trying to deal with. How am I gonNA use a to better to better look at an issue in the house? You don't necessarily have that network and so how does protocol bring that network to you in a way. That's not a cursory kind of two lines trying to define a Is So our goal is to our newsletter in source code to be able to have that daily actionable invoke kind of start my day knowing at the big level at the high level. What's going on but then to be able to find those in depth You know those in depth conversations which I think you'll see a you'll see us have as well so you get income from politico. You didn't come from the media. said he came from the tech industry and then under this crazy I mean why would you go home to the media industry. This is crazy. Hazy decision explain this. What did you see? I mean because I think it's interesting people There's a lot of advantages that coming in with fresh eyes to an industry and I think a lot of people you know. They think they sort of they know media. Because media's like very tangible I think on one level but then up-close it's like wow a lot of this doesn't make sense right or was it not though. Well I'll tell you soon right Kanye Day then you officially say none of you know. Look I think there are lots of things both personally and
Form a Power Habit Today with Tim Beverlin
"Often wish that we had someone in our world who could hold US accountable. Who can have a vision of what's possible for us and would be willing to take a stand for the greatness when we may be fighting for our limitations? The person you're GonNa meet today found that person and he found it in the form of a five year old daughter. If you've read the book you know the FM Alexander quote that people do not decide their futures they decide their habits and their our habits decide their futures. What are the habits that you can form that? If you form them would make cheating extraordinary life easier easier or unnecessary. And who are the people in your world who can begin holding you accountable as you go on your first sixty six day challenge into making that a power habit. Today's episode is a journey of what it looks like to form that first habit what it looks like to seek accountability and how purpose can be woven in to all of this to take your results to an even higher level with that. Let's get into this conversation with Tim. Beverly so why are we sitting here today. Today happens to be day. Sixty six in my first sixty six day challenge of running every a day for sixty six days. What inspired you to go on? A six day challenge to form the habit of running so after listening to the podcast and rereading the one thing for the the sixth or seventh time and finding what is that thing that I struggle with right now and if I were to do that one thing would would lead to other habits being able to be stacked upon that Running is not something I necessarily enjoy and yet I knew if I could commit to running for sixty six days talk about it to others that are in my world in my businesses. An in my family that I would have level accountability as well as that a little check check mark but I want to get every day for six days so at six. Am this morning. started my run and at six thirty or so. When I was wrapping up it was sixty six days and I know that there will be sixty seventh day because it's now habit? How long did it take for it to become a habit for you? Great question by day Eh. About thirty or thirty five I had some traveling to do and my wife and I had a flight to catch from Philadelphia Tennessee at seven. Seven o'clock in the morning. We live about an hour from the airport. The only way to get my run in that day was to run at four o'clock in the morning. And that's not my normal wakeup time and I found myself waking up at three forty five without an alarm and on the treadmill at four. AM running to get my check mark for my thirty fifth day so that one was pretty confident. Confident it was. It was becoming a habit and yet not every day was easy. Talked about that a little bit because I think people it's very simple right. ooh Just just do one thing every day for six days power habit that sticks yes life is amazing. Go through through why it's not easy. It's not easy because life shows up and there are days in my business. That would go a little long and I would get home at seven or eight o'clock at night and I hadn't checked the box yet and sometimes I'd bring dinner home with me. Put It on the counter and go to the basement jumping my treadmill That was not easy and yet it became easier over time. MHM. Because I didn't WanNA break the streak in an at the time I implemented this sixty six day challenge. My daughter asked what the chart was on the fridge and I I have a five year old and five year olds are quite curious. What's that well it's A? It's a challenge. Daddy's zone is going to Run every day for sixty six days. Did she fully get that concept not at all. I want to talk to so I had a second chart. Laminated on the fridge. And everyday she had a good day as I. Four and five year olds. Don't always have good days. They have really great days and days and make you appreciate the really great days and she got a check mark for her really good days and there are times that she would ask my wife. Did Daddy run today. Did he get checkmark today. Where's the APP or travel and and come back? And did you get to put your check marks Markson did you miss any days and having that level of accountability from a five year old. It's really unbelievable. Go into that more. Because we've done a few episodes votes before with parents and their kids and how the kids started living the one thing as a result of watching the parent. What does it mean for your child to have a great day often? It's that my wife has a great day because our children had had now we're really talking the domino and it leads to me having a better day as well at least things got a tie together really really nicely. It's awareness really what it comes down to who is a as a five year old the you know some of their actions they control some of them are just pure emotion that comes out and watching her get really sad. What if she doesn't get a check mark that day that it's starting to become a check mark for her as well and and habits can be built for any age? Yeah so where did this go back to where this came from you. You put your sixty six day challenge calendar where I put it on the side of my refrigerator. Okay as I come in the door go around the corner from my garage. I see the side of the refrigerator and I can see the check marks. Okay and at. What point did your daughter start showing interest in this day one as soon as I put up the Fritsch daddy what's up? What is that and I had to copies? My original intention was to have a laminated copy on the fridge and one down on the treadmill and the two copies just are are side by side on the Fridge Wants Hers One's mine. And what point did it become hearse day one. So what would that conversation look. What because they were for a lot of the parents listen to this? They're like Oh this is really really cool so walk us through how you enlisted the involvement of your child so it was. What was that and when I explained that it was a challenge challenge of sorts? I really believe kids like to be challenged And she wanted to be involved in it and it became a thing that her and I could do together and came up with what would be something. We can measure how. `Bout we measure that every time you have a really good day weeds project MC and we roughly find with that means that Kinda depends on the day every time you don't eat. We're going to skip that day. You have a blank spot. And there's some days it she'll go to countersign. I didn't get my mark yesterday or the day before or the day before it just drives but three or four marks in a row and it's it's become thing we're really. I'm ahead of her. At the moment. I have all sixty six checks and yet she sees the value and what those check marks represent I should mention. I'm not a physician and I. I don't know that running every day for sixty six days. It's the right move quickly and yet the experience has been life changing. We'll hi how's it been life chain. It's come show me what's possible by doing something as simplistic as getting on a treadmill every day. And it's not about the distance I attract my time for the first mile L.. Attract me speed for the first mile and what we shared. Bur what I shared with you before was at my sprint has now become less than my pace and it was unintentional. It just found myself turning up to speed a little bit more in a little bit more in a little bit more in graduate gradually then suddenly I was running faster than I have ever tracked before and this is a habit that I never enjoyed loyd running a staring at a concrete wall running on a treadmill how exciting his at and by the way those eulogising if you would like to get a copy of the sixty six day challenge calendar just go to the one thing dot com. That's the number one in the oral. Click on the free stuff tab and you can download it and start your first power day before going through the sixty six. Stay Challenge. What used to be your sprint? The thing that you would have to work hard to get it's fast you could possibly go is now the bare minimum. That's the pace. That's the pace and the sprint now would have been something that would have knocked off the treadmill Go into more like this shows shows. What's possible what does that mean? What are the things that you now? What are the questions are now asking yourself that you've never asked before? What else have I? I've been cheating myself on by not doing this five years ago when I knew about the sixty six day challenge. And what's next. Say One to learn a a second language. Perhaps I pick one worded day that I learned in an another language for the next sixty six days. I've read somewhere that The average person says about two two hundred words about the use. Whether it's true or not I honestly don't know and yet if I could learn sixty six words in nearly any language who at least get me on the path to mastery of that language and that idea so simplistic one word today. Of course I can do that. How long would that really take to learn one word per day? Three three minutes five minutes and it's just committing to that activity every day and not ever ever ever skipping it. No matter what
Ross and Carrie Meet Isis: Age of Aquarius Edition
"We got a hold of Isis aquarian via phone. She's in Hawaii. We had seen her at the source family reunion dinner but but we didn't talk to her there but she heard our show and she agreed to come on and talk to us and then she did it and it sounded like this high isis. How're you ewing doing Okay well thank you so much for doing this with us. Sure so isis want you tell us about how you got involved in the source family family to begin with I was living in. La Actually engaged to a famous rock and roll photographer. Rondo Shelly loved La. Look everything we were you were you originally from La. I grew up in the air force. My Dad was a military man so we lived in California before. But you know I basically basically lived Oregon California Hawaii okay. A real coastal girl. Oh actually we were living in Florida. My devastation it takes canaveral on. When was this that you are working with your photographer? Slash boyfriend in L. A. Mid Sixties. Okay actually hit meant what Jim Baker when he had three famous restaurants on sunset boulevard breath aware in the world and then the source and he was actually known as Food Goo. Jim Baker was an iconic Hollywood legend. Before he was even bother you owed. Oh Oh okay. That's news to me. In what way his restaurants were all very famous okay. Everybody went to his restaurants. They were shot as a curve. Her and he was you know he was La Player. He was very good looking and he was very inland with no one. BEADY and Steve Allen and it was the in crowd and and he was very well-known. Interesting Steve Allen of our ears so those those two people seem like unlikely. Unlikely friends because Steve Allen was sort of not very into the spiritual side of things. Do you know anything about that friendship while Jim Baker wasn't he didn't it really started his spiritual trip until he sold you old world kind of went on his journey and devise on each other before then. The way I described him Baker's he was the ultimate animal man. He's a man's man that he was lazy. And then now the women loved Kim Piazza Array of friends from Jack Lang to Paul Breaks. So well connected. When did you make the connection with him? Well when I hit lose UCLA. Before I met lawn I had gone to the old world. I was actually introduced to him and his wife. At the time I actually became very good friends with his wife. The store was kind of a whole put on us. Never really kindness connected we did we. Didn't you thought maybe a relationship or something might arise sooner than it did. It was a playboy and then I just Kinda moved onto another crowd and Net ron and then you know we were doing our studio. I haven't seen Jim in in a year or two. I heard that he opened. This restaurant called the source. It was the beginning beginning of this. That you chain restaurant that he opened up and we were looking for models for Jesus Christ superstar Mhm Booster we were doing and I love that I need some Jesus type looking people and I said well. I've heard that my old friend. Jim has him at this restaurant. There's a collection of Jesus wearing roads. I stepped onto the source doors patio. He came out looking like Moses. You know so close he wanted. Jesus and Moses. Yeah so you know is is women following him and beautiful young people at the stores and it was just like something happened I just I clicked. uh-huh never looked back. Did you have to go home and think about it and then return the next day just immediately a member it was immediately. I was Aw something happened. I would if it was if I knew this is what I was there for. I instantly blue that we had made agreements before incriminating and he confirmed that just like my destiny was that was it it was assets. What was the confirmation to just kind of agree with you or did he have some kind of evidence of that now? He looked at me and he said I. I've been waiting for you. It was like a cosmic snick download. And then he's voiced it. Okay yeah so I went back home and I told you on that. I was playing to join the first family way and I thought he would actually come with. Yeah I remember in the documentary. He was saying that that wasn't for him. Come with me. And he thought I was stark raving me now and he let me go thinking that you know in a couple of weeks I would be back but I didn't. That was that that next day you were having having Frist Bruce as a family and the sunflower and Solomon. Yeah that was the proof of Solomon and that to the studio and I got some cameras and I just started documenting. Because that's what I was used to doing. That started my path of being a family. Historian all starring in our guys keep her which is so cool and I think what really makes the source standout from so many other groups that you have so much documentation. How much of that is yours? And how did you kind of make sure that you yourself were included in the in the documentation. Well it was all mine. Basically I started it and then I was just with him all the time following him around and I became like one of the family administrators and Kinda hands the camera off to a Swiss. This brother only and by that time. He likes the whole thing being you know recording and he said this will end up saving the legacy and who has all that now. Does it take a good chunk of your house. How many photos yard? I you know she'll onto the art guys through forty some years of being here Hawaii. They started getting started deteriorating because the climate and just one day I well well you know I gotta figure this out. I gotTa do something and that was about fifteen years ago when I decided I was going to write the book. I never never intended to be the one that wrote the book but I couldn't get anybody else to do it. Some people were families didn't even know they were in the source family. They didn't Walker kids to know about the story. Okay so so how. Many of the former members G. think are still open about how they were in the source family versus what percentage would you say. Just kind of. Don't talk about it. It's buried deep in the past for them. Well since the documentaries a book and all the publicity the city and and we've had a couple of family reunions. I think everybody's pretty open to you. Know some people that that are negative negative to it and realization that we all came to and it was quite a shock to me when I think it was. We didn't all have the same. Mainly -ality is added censure thought through the Lens of our own being our own karmic experience that we had. y'All were on a different different paths with it so if we different people will get different stories everybody else. I'll have the same experience That's a really nuanced onced. Lovely view that you know we all have these different experiences and we might see them you know totally subjectively. I feel like that's A A little contrasting with some of the the ways that was presented in documentary where it felt more like father yoed is the embodiment of God and everyone in the source kind of saw him that way and he really was. What was the word? It was like your your earthly master. Something like that. So how do we do. Yes we you went through those phases through all phases from the beginning of the family we went to so many incarnations experience. The American Indian Chips the Hebrews. He took assuming everything he was on his path. Also listen incredible me but you know yes it got messy at times you know we were all all trying to figure it out including him he had to figure it out too. There was bends in the road. Yes you know. I think we all got a passing grade. We were a mystery school. We were just hippie. We were into the spiritual pursuit and it was new territory for him for all of us. Who is God? He was God to us. It's not uncommon to talk that way not uncommon to talk about being in our God goddess. Okay so what's he got in the same way that I'm God. Yeah Yeah so you know forty years ago that was just like new territory. We we saw each other gods. We saw each other spiritual beings
Grace Kosko: A Collector of Certifications
"We are with grace. Costco Grace is a lifetime mover job. She's a physical therapy assistant. But if that's not enough. She's done a variety of other things so one of the questions. I often ask for my other podcasts. Moving to live is what your thirty second elevator Spiel of what you do so you see somebody somebody comes up to you. We're done interviewing. They said well. Who are you what do you do? What do you tell them? That is a difficult question. Let's see I am in the process of reinventing inventing myself. I am a former hairstylist. And became a yoga instructor. Loved learning about the human body. And I'm now in massage therapy school after completing physical therapist assistant school last year so I'm a collector of certifications and licenses and I may use that collector of certifications in the future thinking down the line. You suspect in the future. After doing the massage therapy there will be additional certifications coming along possibly strength and conditioning coach and I think one of the things grace was mentioning before we started recording is her boyfriend is also a collector of certifications. And he's got some of his own and his business and he us also also said he's branched out into the health and wellness field also very much. So he's a geek so nutrition so so pressure is on. If you get to know grace you have to keep up with the certifications vacations. My favorite question. I always went ask people from Philly. Pittsburgh is. Are you a Pittsburgh native if so why are you still here. If not what brought to Pittsburgh I am a Pittsburgh. Native grew up in a suburb about thirty minutes. Outside of the city in North Huntingdon. I don't know why I'm still in Pittsburgh. I would love to leave but I just don't know of anywhere to go that I love more than Pittsburgh and I know this is a podcast about movement. I always want to ask people. Obviously now is a yoga instructor working as a physical therapy assistant. You're going after. I believe you said at some point strong. I which is a kettle bell training certification which ages no joke. Were you active growing up or were you somebody who's like yeah. I don't like being active and kind of as a follow up to that where you active because mom and Dad said get the hell out of the house. Elsa don't come back until dinnertime or because mom and dad were active. If you had brothers and sisters they were active and you kind of got dragged along with them so my family is not an active family. My mom did tell me to get out of the House and not come home until dinner. I actually my fitness journey didn't start until I was about eighteen. I had ED Attended cosmetology school and gained weight. Because I ate from the vending machine on every ten minute break that we had and ballooned up to you two hundred pounds and I said Nope this has got to stop so stop. Drinking pop started eating better started attending a fitness class. Just that was local in our neighborhood neighborhood and eventually made my way to an official. Jim started taking yoga class. I loved the Yoga Teacher. She worked at a yoga. Studio became came a yoga instructor so it was just this little bits here and there that I collected and then Found that I really love weight training as well I'm unnaturally flexible person. But I noticed I was starting having some aches and pains and I thought maybe I need to do the other end of things and started weightlifting. Dabbled a little bit and cross bit But we have our own gym downstairs with pedal bells because you can do so much with one little weight. And that's why I'm pursuing that certification now now and I'm curious people that you knew when you were growing up or maybe when you first went to cosmetology school that you still keep in touch with. Do they think you're crazy. Do they love what you're doing. Do they look look at you and say what the heck you taking years off your life I would hope. They think that I'd love to be an inspiration to my friends and people that I know. I don't don't think they think I'm crazy. They just let me go. Do my own thing I try to impart that to them as well. I haven't really convinced many people although I do have two two friends that wanted to attend taste of fitness that was hosted at the ace hotel in East Liberty. So we got to do that together. And that was Super Fun thinking now in your fitness journeys said not super active growing up figured it out at eighteen because I know a lot of people. Don't they just continue eating away. They did growing up up thinking vending machine. Food is good looking back on it now a few years later. What do you think made the biggest difference or made you say I need to do something about this Honestly probably wasn't until I met my boyfriend that I really had my a come to Jesus moment with food and started figuring out why I was so emotionally emotionally connected to food. That was the big component for me. My mom always had baked goods in the house. Home Baked goods not little debbie snacks and it was a dessert after every meal will I was also part of the Clean Plate Club So as I started living on my own I started cooking from cooking white magazine so I was able to help myself out with that. But yeah until you go down the emotional path and the mental path of Y. You're eating the way you are and making the decisions that you are. I don't think there can really be changed and that was sweat. Did it for me and I think a lot of people don't hit on with that as it's different for everybody. There's not one magic thing I know we had earlier. podcast guest who transitioned transition from running to was in school and gained some weight and then started cycling because his dad and his brother who were both physical therapists said. Hey you need to do something and I asked the question and I said did they talk to you about your health. He said No. No my brother just guilted me into it so I think it's important for some people that is what it is like peer pressure and for other people it's figuring Out What's the emotional attachment. What works for you doesn't necessarily work for me or somebody else? I know for me. My journey with food was when I made the mistake of taking a nutrition class in college is like ooh. Some of this stuff isn't really good for me so I still like to eat the whole blueberry pie but it's probably after doing an eight or nine hour activity where it's like okay. I need calories. I'm curious also with the progression with fitness. One of the things that people often find. They're eighteen nineteen twenty. They get in school. They're out on their own. It's like okay I got school. I've got maybe work and I've got lots and lots of free time as you've probably figured out as you get older as you collect more certifications that I know from chatting with you you have at least one dog and at least one cat things start to pick up. How do you find the time? I'm to make sure that you stay active or their time. Just say I just can't do this because a lot of people say boy I'd love to work out or I'd love to watch what I eat but I just don't have time. It's easier to go out to eat so a lot of times times. Hearing what other people do is beneficial. Yeah that I don't understand why time gets less as you get older and it's Trying to optimize it as has best you can so I try not to burden myself with the need to exercise. I fit it in. Where can Dan so Mondays are completely obliterated? I don't even think about it Tuesdays are my day off so I fit it in where I can there Instead that of sitting on the couch I'll sit on the floor and I'll do either some stretches or some muscle activation stuff Taking my dog for a walk Crawling around on the floor is a great movements So if I don't really have a ton of time I just have made me fifteen minutes before work. I'll just head down into the basement and just do some mhm animal movement kind of stuff for cycle for ten minutes just to get the blood flowing Parking far away from the grocery store taking the stairs. You know the the normal things that you here as well and just kind of realizing that you don't have to block an hour out to go to the gym to fit movement into your life. We're talking with Grace Costco. I think from what she's just described over. The last few minutes she really is treating movement is a lifestyle from hearing. You mentioned crawling around on the floor doing animal animal movements. I have a suspicion at some point your future the move nat certification is going to become one of the things you do. I know for moving to live. We interviewed Jenny plus lost from New Mexico as a physical therapist who's actually moved using move nat in the clinic. She works with she was actually introduced to it by another physical therapist. And you hit on another thing that I don't think a lot of people take into account as far as making movement part of their lifestyle. You said we've got a gym in our basement and a couple of kettlebells or t-rex machine she into something like that then you don't blow the fifteen twenty thirty minutes going to the gym the ten minutes to park the five minutes of BS ING with the Front Desk Staff. Not In a bad headway. You've got twenty minutes if you've got twenty minutes or you've got ten minutes or five minutes you've always got it there and it's like I've got kettlebells upstairs I've got kettlebells downstairs pedal uh-huh kettlebells in my on my patio in the backyard. And it's it's really. I think you've hit on something enough. People don't do get some stuff for home because that's beneficial official. We have a basket in our living room. That's filled with kind of recovery stuff so balls. Resistance bands are everywhere. My boyfriend has a hand weights in his office. And we are Jim downstairs and in the summertime of course the deck is filled with staff when we have actually have a climbing rope from the bottom of the deck up to the top. I got stuck on it. Maybe next time you could build a climbing wall on the deck also. That's one of the things that I would like to do. That's definitely on our on our list. Climbing is One of our new hobbies that we started last year and definitely love
The Story of William Tell
"To legend William Tell was a whiz with a bow and Arrow he lived in the mountains of Switzerland the opening of the William Am tell overture paints a beautiful picture of a mountain sunrise starting with a great solo for cello. In fact the whole first part of the overture is written just for the low string instruments cello bill bases MHM with a couple of ominous drum rolls to give you a hint that the weather forecast for today is not good. Sure enough when the rest of the orchestra joins in. It's a signal. The arrival of a Rossini specialty it starts with wind in the trees and some small blinky raindrops tell pretty soon. We're into a full-fledged downpour complete with lightning and thunder the sort of storm Benjamin Franklin would not have wanted to be caught flying in his kite in portraying. Thunderstorms in music was one of the things. Rossini did best. Rossini also used thunderstorm in this overture to show the political critical storm brewing. In William tells part of Switzerland which was controlled by foreigners from Austria headed by nasty guy named Yesler. Gessler thought that even when he wasn't around people should show how important he was by bowing down to his hat which he stuck on a pole in the middle of town. When William Tell came to town with his son he thought it was pretty dumbed? Bow Down to a hat on a pole. Gessler was not amused. But instead of killing William Tell Gessler usual punishment for failure to salute a hat in a public place Gessler. I said I hear Europe. Pretty hot. Shot Mister Towel. If you can prove it by shooting an apple off your son's head with a single Arrow I'll let you go. Uh both the story and the thunderstorm have happy endings when the rain ends outcome the birds. And because we're in Switzerland home of Swiss cheese and milk chocolate there are cows to be called the orchestra instrument that does a lot of cow calling duty. Is the the English horn. It's sitting in for an Alpenhorn a Swiss folk instrument that's used to call from mountain to mountain back back to the story of William Tell who did shoot the apple off his son's head with a single ero but Gessler. The bad guy noticed that before tell took his one one shot. He took two arrows out of his quiver so he asked why Williams tells answer was if I had missed that second era would have been for you eventually. William Tell did kill Gessler which started a Swiss uprising and got rid of the Austrian invaders. If you're going to have an uprising rising what do you need trumpet to rally the troops and of course horses. And that's the part of the William Intel overture. You probably recognize your parents or grandparents know it as the theme to the Lone Ranger Radio and television shows
Fighting cancer with CRISPR
"Now we have staff writer Jennifer cousin Frankel. She wrote a story this week on Crisper and cancer immunotherapy to big ideas says mushed together for the first time in human patients. Hi Jennifer Hi. Thanks for having me sure. I said something scary. It's not every day that we get to say a something is a first. There's always a lot of pushback whenever we put it into a story or if it comes up in a research paper but this is some type of I. This is the first time that that researchers have reported on taking immune cells in this case the T. cells which we kind of think of as the soldiers of the immune in system that fight off infection using crisper to modify them together and then putting them back inside a human body and seeing what happens. It's that hasn't been done before. It hasn't been described before their trials that are going on. That are testing this and this is why we never put I in a headline exactly far to do was dive into the techniques. We're GonNa talk about cancer immunotherapy and then we're also going to talk about crisper. We need to kind of understand both of those things to understand what happened in this paper. This is a specific kind of cancer. Immunotherapy right yes. That's right so cancer. Immunotherapy is essentially trying being to harness the immune system to fight cancer. And it's something that's been really hot in the cancer field for the last several years in fact won the Nobel prize is just the other year. What this study is making use of is one technique in cancer? Immunotherapy that uses the T. cells and it tries to to sort of help. The t cells recognize tumor cells and then destroy them some of the problems that have come up as people have experimented with that. Were things like it. It doesn't really get into solid tumors and some other things. This is still a really new field and people are still working very hard to improve. Its success it's been pretty successful in blood cancers leukemia in lymphomas and there are two Cardi cell therapy's that companies have developed in that have been approved there are some additional additional hurdles in solid tumors. And it has been more difficult to consistently get the therapy to work in solid tumors solid tumors or things. Like brain tumor pancreatic host humor. Like I think yeah any tumor. That's kind of a solid mass as opposed to in the blood. That's the cancer immunotherapy side of things. Let's talk about the crisper side of things. Can you just tell us what crisper is. And then maybe we can talk about how. It's been used their politically or not so far. So crisper is another really hot area in biology Jay. It's a technology that essentially cuts DNA and then the DNA can kind of recombine in different ways it can be used in different settings to add genes or DNA to remove them. It depends but it can give a lot of flexibility around modifying DNA A and it's used in all different settings not just in medicine but strongly medicine is one area where there's been a lot of interest in using crisper because it's a way of modifying lying. The genome in this case crisper is used to modify immune cell so they took immune cells out of a patient and then use this gene editing technique to make changes to them. They had these three patients and what they did was they took out blood cells and then they modified those cells in the lab. They had to add in a gene gene. That was going to target a protein that was on the surface of their cancer cells. The other thing that they did was they used crisper to edit the genome such that they were knocking out three other genes and the genes that they chose they chose because they I hope they would make the T. cells even more powerful. They hope they would help them. Hang around longer in the body more effective against the tumors than they reintroduce introduce those cells. They gave them back in. That whole process takes several weeks. It takes four to six weeks to from the time you take the blood out to the time you put the cells back in. They had to go through a number of layers to make sure that they were really doing everything safely and carefully. So what were they worried about when they reintroduced these cells into the body. One one question was just you know with these cells even survive right. He just kind of disappear which has been a problem. In general with some genetically modified t cells it can be hard good for them to kind of thrive in the body and these these were cells that had been modified in several different ways. Then of course another question is are they going to cause harm MHM if they do survive and one particular concern with crisper. Is that when you go in to do this. Editing you can have these off off target effects. Were you accidentally cause modifications to other DNA. That you weren't aiming for there was concern that that could happen then of course that's changing other. DNA in the T.. Cells who knows what effects that might have on the patients so those are the big two questions and then also you know they probably wanted to know if the people would get better. Everyone of course hoped that that it would help. These patients get better at the same time. The trial was not really designed for efficacy it was too small and it was also also so new and so they made certain choices in the very specific details of the treatment. They offered that improved safety. There were certain things they did did to try and make it less likely that the immune system of the patients would react in a sort of dangerous way to the cells but in doing so that could potentially elite reduced. How effective the treatment is you know the target that they picked on the cancer cells? They pick that specific target because there had been a number of trials targeting doing that with traditional therapy so they knew was probably a pretty safe target. But it may be isn't the best target unfortunately and as you might expect from. I'm talking about it. The patients did not recover from their cancer. Because of this therapy. What were some of the other results of the experiment that we can talk about now so I would say the results were that for the time for which they've been followed? The treatment appeared safe so far. Nothing scary happened nothing. There were no showstoppers. They saw some off target effects. But those off target effects didn't seem to cause any obvious harm to the musicians in the cells that had the off target effects. The percentage of cells with those effects seemed to kind of fade out over time about the target effects like the changes made to the T.. Cells of these patients. Were those persistent in the body. One thing that I think was quite heartening. Is that these. He sells really stuck around in a way. That other t cells going after this particular target haven't in other published studies and so they've they've lasted so far up to nine months and they're continuing to follow these patients and also when they took out the cells over months which they did did they would take blood from the patients and then look at the sells again it could get them back and study them in the lab and those sales were targeting cancer in the lab now like you say in the patients. The benefits were definitely limited. There were three people treated one of those people has since died and in the other to their disease has progressed and they are getting other treatments. MHM so the effects were limited. You know it can be hard to kind of know how to understand that on the one hand this is just three patients and so we were very very sick. And so if we're thinking about what's going to be an effective treatment you need to treat more people to really know and then again you're thinking about this. First Time in people have focused on safety safety from your story from boats. It really seemed like that people in this field were saying this is a step. This is getting us over a really big hurdle. Yes I think it's a step and I think it's kind of layering on the use of crisper onto this other area of cell therapy that have gotten so much interest interest in generated so much excitement cancer but also still have a lot of room to improve and it's a way of saying can we make better use is other technology. What's expected to happen next more of the same thing? Are they going to try to infer different targets. One of the exciting things about this field right now. Is there so much happening. And people have so many he different ideas for what they could try and there are a lot of different theories and we don't really know what's going to pan out and what's not and so there are a lot of different. The group's thinking about different targets different cancers other diseases of course to apply crisper to their companies. That are involved. They're just a lot of different ways. You could go with this but right now. There are other trials that are recruiting patients for crisper modified t cells else and some people. I talked to said you know. There are surely going to be many more trials opening in parts result of this study. What kind of of regulatory oversight was there for this is there a body that governs crisper studies? There's not a body that's specific to crisper but there is as a group called the recombinant DNA Advisory Committee which is a a panel that has traditionally vetted the safety and ethics of different gene therapy trials funded by the US government or other other funders and so this went through the review of that committee. which is colloquially known as the rack of the and also so went through you know a lot of review of the National Institutes of health a lot of review from the US Food and Drug Administration? You know as you can imagine anything new. Where you're you're genetically commodifying cells to a degree? You have four earn away. You haven't before writing them into people you have to be careful and of course you know. Everyone has hopes for this therapy in the years ahead. And because of that you have to be so careful when you're starting out. The hopes of a lot of people were pinned on gene therapies. His and yeah you know some early problems. Really put a damper on the field for a long time. Yes if something really terrible happens not only is that obviously terrible for that individual it has these ripple effects across the field and so I think the people running this trial. We're thinking of both of those things as they designed and pursued the study. Thank you so much Jennifer. Thank
Terminology and Science Museums
"So we can have a dialogue again. This is exciting. I love talking about museums with my museum friends and I hope you guys like it too but first first of all I wanted to. I neglected to mention something in my last episode with regards to conservators and this is very important for trivia purposes. One of the best solvents for gently cleaning the surface of paintings is human saliva and that sounds gross in weird but in fact any conservative that you talk it was like Oh yeah absolutely spit on that well not spit on it. I actually I got a chance to do that at work. The other you've got to spit on I got to spend on some painting raining so We were cleaning some Oil on board me and my coworker Carol. Hi Carol she doesn't listen to this podcast and She gave me a bunch of thin sticks and a bunch of loose cotton and she taught me to grab a piece of cotton and roll it up and stick it in my cheek and let it sit there and then pull it out. Roll it around the stick and then gently like buff. The surface of the vichy was hazing. You she he did the same thing. We're both both like cotton or cheeks like like the Godfather and cleaning the surface of paintings and it is this is an excellent solvent because it has a gentle and like I'm enzyme that breaks down the surface of dirt but doesn't harm The the image the image or the varnish. That's the word I'm looking for and this is why people don't want you to get up close and personal with the paintings museums because it's covered and spit. They're covered in human spirit. You guys just thinking they don't want you to spend on at least don't spit on them because it will break it down eventually eventually. Also zoos museums yes. One hundred percent hundred percent user museums. They have a collection process. They collect animals and they have a loan process. They loan animals to other museums for certain amount of time. There's paperwork involved. They have the accession process. It's more gruesome than a normal museum process shirts. They D- Accession. There's paperwork involved when an animal shuffles off this mortal coil. So I wanted to give a shout out to you my cousin the zoo not my my work cousin the chiefs that your cousin is zoo. Steve's yes yeah Steve's brothers the Internet my cousin Xue facts okay we we. We have a friend in listener yes Jane Liz Zookeeper Oh keeper. Yes Hello James. Hello James and we decided we're just going to go to the zoo with a microphone and having talked to us. I think it's a good idea and I think I think he would be down for it. He's been like really. I mean I feel terrible because we have been in touch with him and we just have not gotten a chance to like hook up and actually do an episode. But he's a great guy he he has very interesting work. He's funny interesting and we're definitely going to do an episode soon. And that's I think we definitely should go to the zoo do like real. NPR Shit Man Mandalay Bay. She goes to the zoo. I love that okay. That's it misinformation goes to the zoo. Get Ready James. We're coming for you all right museum terminology. Time time okay. All of these terms are for my award. Winning powerpoint presentation entitled Life Is Short and then you die physical deterioration and how to prevent it. It is not award-winning. It's just one of my powerpoint from class but okay I term inherent vice. which was my team? Name for Trivia and Grad School and. Yes we want a lot Inherent Vice is the tendency and physical objects to deteriorate because of the fundamental instability of the components of which they are made as opposed to deterioration caused us by external forces. What does that mean it? Basically means that the makeup of the object is slowly destroying it from the inside. And there's nothing you can do about it. A good example of this as newspapers the process by which the paper is made is very acidic which causes the paper to yellow and crumble eventually which is not reversible by any conservation mean all objects have some kind of inherent vice as a result of the baseline law of entropy of course but we're not going to get really philosophical about this because that's just looking into an abyss is that we just don't have time for today. My students in my injured archives course get a whole week of me just telling them how terrible everything the thing is. Light is bad. Water is bad. Air As bad heat is bad touching things as bad like just. Don't yeah just don't that's the that's basically. Yeah this is your stuff is going to die. Yup Life is short and then you die. That's why I called that. My students laugh but it's true. The next term is foxing. Your must be familiar. smiliar with this. It is an age related process of deterioration that causes spots and Browning on old paper documents. The name may derive from the Fox like Reddish Brown color of the stains or the arrest. Chemical Ferric Oxide which may be involved paper so affected is said to be Fox. I see this a lot with like bookbinding Oh yeah absolutely foxing also occurs biological study skins or specimens as an effective chemical reactions or mold on Melanin. The causes of foxing aren't super stood. It might be mold or the oxidation of metals. Like iron or copper in the pulp or rag from which the paper is made but no one is entirely sure it is reversible but it is kind even intensive process so a lot of times if the paper is already unstable foxing. Isn't that big of a deal and so a lot of conservatives we'll just leave it mhm unless it's like super bad and you can't actually read the paper yeah The next word is crippling Crippling the distinctive network of fine cracks in glass which is visible to the naked eye It's one of the symptoms of Glass Disease Aka sick class or glass s. l. nece nicer bones. Yup Bird bones. Glass disease is caused by an inherent instability the chemical composition of the original glass formula It is irreversible double but able to be slowed down by tight climate control which we will talk about in a moment and and Lauren did a really great episode heart glass. Yes I did an episode episode twenty one year. So we're back there in the catalog early enough first year and also if you like glass may I plug the series blown away on Netflix. which there's like competition show about glassblowing very fascinating so yeah glasses? Amazing like if you're a local New York state. I highly recommend the Corning Museum of glass which talks about the science the history the art and like another thing of glass. It's just all about glass and it's a big beautiful museum that got a great a gift shop off their gift shops fantastic and they do hot glass shows where they actually like make glass in front of you and talking about the process and it's really cool So highly recommend and go to the Corning Museum of Glass. The next term is called cobbling cobbling is a plea distortion of paper parchment or textile. It appears as has wrinkles puckers or ripples often in parallel ridges without creases liked buckling but appears in waves. So cobbling just kind of looks looks like like a rumpled sheet basically like on your bed also just as an FYI words like weeping oozing desiccation or drying out offc gassing the evaporation potentially dangerous chemicals into the air or fry -able which is easily broken apart or flaking tends to be words used in other fields as well but all have to do with pound object is damaged or breaking down the just going back The like this cock owing paper happens because Paper if it absorbs water and then when the water out so this is why you don't want your humidity and your temperature. Allocate Awhile Talk Yeah. That's that's a big thing that'll happen that you can like clearly visible that Yudo. Something's wrong paper starts doing yeah. It's a very obvious symptom Kim of that also a couple of words that are not necessarily damage But definitely our weaknesses in the object. So so this term correct floor. Crack Laura's a fine pattern of dense cracking formed on the surface of materials usually oil paintings. It can be a result of drying aging aging intentional patterning or a combination of all three and the term is most often used to refer to temper Oil paintings but it can also develop old ivory carvings painted miniatures on ivory backing. Recently analysis. Chrysler has been proposed as a way to authenticate art basically. It's just the way that paint is layered in the process of actually painting getting the piece of artwork sometimes certain layers Dry faster than others or there is an off gassing process during the drying process and it damages the surface level and so it actually shrinks or expands spending and causes these fine cracks Which is interesting Crack floor in Pottery is called crazing in that at similar in that it's fine. Cracks appear on the surface of the material most often the glaze layer of pottery ceramics and beautiful it is beautiful and especially like both cracker crazing. One could argue is desirable desirable in certain cases. Like when you see Chrysler and a painting you know it's old it's an antique Lens Air of like authenticity to it. crazing and pottery is seen as like a textural benefits and it does make the peace weaker to a certain extent. You're not supposed to like DOC put. You're not supposed to wash or soak pieces of pottery. That have crazing on them. Because that means that there's a weakness in the water can get into the poorest part of the pottery but it is very beautiful in some potters and artists. Like make sure that it is purposeful like they purposely fire. Fire it so that there is some crazy
Luke Combs Interview
"All right. Welcome to episode to twenty-six lacomb likewise been home in a while so I'm not. I got a text from me like an hour to get here. Yeah Yeah it's a it's a decent way out you finish working out and I was like Oh looks looks to be here like saws throwing on clothes. You're like he's going to be hearing launderers. Wet Towel off all the way and then I didn't realize you live so far away. Yeah Yeah when did that happen for you. We actually able to buy some landing. It was probably just about a year ago. So I've been in my house just over a year now so is it feels like home it does. It does now for sure I definitely. Didn't we move there. You know because it was you know so far from town and our friends ends you know still live in town and it's just a it took a little bit of getting used to man but I wouldn't wanna be anywhere else now. Isn't it furniture the worst. Yes because you just don't expect expect it to be that expensive. Not only that but you think that like okay. Well if I'M GONNA spend X. amount on this couch which I think is an insane amount. There should just be one. That's there like you have one in the store and it's GonNa take you six months to get one to my house like I just don't understand a specially for a nice one right. You'd think they could move to the next right. You would think they would just be like. Oh let's just make this tomorrow. The things that I buy that are are frustrating to me our furniture and again I live in a pretty nice house now and but to fill it up with crap. I'm leaving in most of my rooms. It's Solano nope not at all. I don't WanNA leave empty because I'm ocd about that stuff and then they're like this is how much a bad costs you can. Refrigerators frigerator suck. frigerator are mine just broke recently which was great car tires. It's something else that you go. You gotTa have good ones. You get what you pay for. I've got a vehicle that's getting. I'm not there now. Giving me a new vehicle. It's broken like four times since I've had it Geeta lemon like women law. That's the thing right where they just like. Okay well we're just GONNA take the loss and just give you a new one so the car that you bought rubber broken four times. Yeah I mean it works but it's just kind of user error. No it's not user air. No it's it's great and it's just every time time it always happens right when I get right when I get home from like a long period of not being here and I haven't been able to drive live and then I get in it like at the airport and then it it breaks on the way home like you just trying to get home right by. TV does that enough. Like I'm ready to get home. I've been out the only time I need to use it. It didn't work and watch the office and just chilling then. It doesn't connect so I don't want them to fix it anymore just just either. Semi new owner argue Mary Fund or something. So Oh you did the last couple of New York doing doing sem love what was that like for you. Get in the call and I'm not sure how that call work. Do you go. I'd I'd like to be on. SNL think about us or not really you know it was like it was super last minute and it always is. I think it's like because they booked the hosts I mean I'm not certain but I feel like they book the hosts three weeks out and then the musical act. I mean it was like a week and a half so oh you didn't know for three or four months that you were going to be. SNL Yeah no no. It was like I got called in it was like. Hey we're doing this. Alison Week half and I was like okay so we had torsos scheduled like we rented out the space and all the crews. They're setting everything up. The ban guys had already rehearsed a couple of days and then they had to open. Go to New York like super last minute. That's pretty cool. Though right it was awesome and it was really awesome. It was it was definitely the coolest coolest list like filming thing experience that I've had what's it like walking into that space for the first time because you rehearse pre The day before or a couple of days so we went in. I mean two or three days. We were in New York for four days. And I can't imagine how. Jj was there heaps probably there for at least a week. Maybe maybe even the writing meetings he was in all the right meetings and changing the skits and everything like that so it was really cool because I grew up watching US L. With my dad and and so it was really neat. It was very surreal to be there in like C set so a conic you know and is awesome in You know definitely do it again. Do you do the first. Because the first show they we do as full and then they'll end up moving and cutting sketches a bit and then they just go again and do it again live. Yes when you do the first one to do the same two songs running just as you were going to run and how did you feel after basically the super dress rehearsal talk really good about it. I mean you know Lauren came in and was like. Hey you're holding the Mike too high I on the first song cameras. Yeah and you can't because normally I'm holding up here and he's like why can't see your face if you're holding up here so you got to just calm. But that was the only we note that he had but other than that it was great. Who did you ask to take pictures with? I didn't really ask. I'm not a big like I'm not a big like take the picture backstage guy you know unless it happens naturally Obviously me and JJ got a picture. But I mean obviously I wanted to picture with Lorne because I've been a fan of his for a long time and But that was it you know I. I've never been into like unless it's a natural thing that happens. You know. I'm not a big like pop in the dressing room and be like what's You know I mean I don't mind that at all. I actually love when people do that but sometimes I just feel uncomfortable about it. You know because you don't really know I didn't know. Jj Who's going to be like Super Nice Awesome Guy. You Know I. I mean I've never met him so he might have been like. Who's this Guy Michaels? Like he was awesome. He was Super Nice. He's definitely a boss. You can definitely tell. He runs the show But he was he was very nice. Man Very no one will Just had some great stories you know and then. Jj Eh you know. Obviously he's mass of my experience the NFL players as they look big on TV. But then when you meet them you're like Oh my God. They're so big. It was like that to me yes. They're so much bigger they look big on TV but everyone on TV's big on the Games you know so you don't really like if there's the guy that looks bigger than the rest of the guys that guy's really big and so sent him to Jj it was. It was definitely weird. I'm not small guy but he was just massive Tali six foot so when you did the promos watching some of those promos. Because that's those are the iconic thing where they have one of the cast members the host and the musical art MHM like as far as what I was able to see. That was one of the coolest things I got to see you do because I've just seen so many people do that every year. Yeah it was neat and they put eighty Brian on a like an apple box so she she was just she was like she looked like a child. You know beside us. So they had her up on apple doc just so she was like in the frame. I mean it was. It was pretty

Haley former governor of South Carolina and United States Ambassador to the UN on this episode.

She reveals what she loves about the Sikh faith but also why she converted to Christianity Haley also dives lives into the confederate flag. Debate those rumors about her replacing Mike Pence on the ticket and she opens up like never before about a possible run for president. Here's Nikki Haley. Nikki Haley welcome into the studio for the journeys of Faith podcast. Last time I saw you on the sidelines of the National Championship Chip College Football Championship game. When Clemson was beating Alabama? Such a good time had an amazing program. I'm really three National Championships. UNSHIPPED four years. We're proud Davo. Were proud of that team or product. Schoon yeah you are and you went to Clemson just for all of those listening out there. You graduated from Clemson and I'm not GonNa date you and say when which are very young well I graduated from Clemson met my husband my first weekend at Clemson got engaged at Clemson and our daughter daughter is now at Clemson's who were a bit clemson obsessed what I really love about your history. Your faith history. You're raised in a seekonk so tell me uh-huh maybe some of the tenants the main tenants of the Sikh faith. Well you know it's interesting because we were the only Indian family in a small southern town probably less the one percent of the population in South Carolina's Indian. And then you go when you look at the Sikhs in the area I mean it was just small. Every third Sunday Sunday seek families would get together at someone's home in the state to have to have prayers and so it was probably no more than one hundred people people that we would get together with but the faith itself is a very kind peaceful faith. It's one that's all accepting mm-hmm they believe in one God and what was so interesting was even though I would go every third Sunday with my family somewhere My parents made us go to different churches. Methodist Baptist Catholic Yummy. You name it. They go so my mom would say I want you to respect everyone and how they do their prayers but you understand. There's one guide but everyone has has their own pathway. And as long as you have your relationship with God the new will be okay and so they just wanted us one to respect other religions but to to understand and see the relationship people have with God and so it was really important because I talk about how and why I converted converted when I would go to a good war or temple for prayers. I would feel it. I would feel God in the room but I couldn't understand understand it because I didn't I didn't know the religion I didn't know the language and so when I started dating my husband and we started going more and more to his church and he was methodist. I immediately could relate I immediately. You found a connection of a sudden there was not just the feeling but it was the words that I could relate to. That really meant something to me. And that was really when I knew if I wanted to grow deeper in my faith if I wanted to have a stronger relationship tip I needed to have something that spoke to me and so that was that was how it happened so your husband was methodist when you met him. Yeah you're seek and you had a multi-denominational wedding you celebrated the methodist traditions and the Sikh traditions girl my family obviously wanted to see me have an Indian ceremony so I did. So that was for all of their friends and family and then we had a Christian ceremony for Michael's friends and family so in the end we got married twice. Were doubly. Okay yes you're deli okay. I know you just touched on it. But what made you convert to Christianity from the Sikh faith a faith that your parents still adhere adhere to it really was when you grow your faith you have to be able to talk to God and you have to be able to go to a service service and feel it and if you don't understand the language you're not hearing it and it's harder and harder to feel it and so the the language that they're speaking is just to clarify Punjabi. Yes was what they were speaking at the time. But you know you have to have that connection and when you're sitting thing in service and you feel it that's one it's so important you know I always say My faith has grown over time. Because you know I you have a faith because your appearance teach you to have a strong faith then you start to grow when you get married because you have faith together with your husband and then when you have children it takes you to a whole new level because Michael always said that our children if we could teach them a faith and a conscience everything else would be okay and so all of a sudden it gets deeper and then as I went through challenges in my life it just went to another level I mean obviously when we dealt with the Charleston shooting. I think that was a huge turning point for me because it was so painful and it was so hard that there was no one or nothing that was going to get me through that but God and I I mean that's when I started to believe in and just recite Joshua one nine be strong and be courageous. Do not be afraid you know or the Lord. Your God is with you wherever God with you wherever you go and I think that was you know when you when you feel that and you and it speaks to you you look more for how else it can speak to you and how you can grow your faith. Hey I want to touch on the Charleston shooting in just a moment which you write about in yearbook. That's out with all due respect it was released in two thousand nineteen but just going back to the Sikh faith. I know you have converted to Christianity. Your parents are still seek. Are there parts of the faith. The tradition practices that you still implement into to your daily life that you still hold dear. I think you know more than that. It's just respect for parents. Respect for family Love of all people MHM Respect for all people and you know in the Sikh faith it acknowledges other religions so it doesn't say you have to be secret nothing else. It acknowledges analogize other religions it acknowledges Jesus it acknowledges you know that Jesus was the son of God you and so there's different things that they had more than that what I take from it is the is the respect and the peaceful side of the Sikh faith which is respect everyone and in everything you do in your life should lead to peace and the best way to appreciate your blessings is to give back. Those were the things that I took away from what my parents parents taught us. And when the Sikh faith taught us and so then when I converted to Christianity those are all things that you can still go and build on and carry it forward right but I I you know. I can't give enough credit to my parents for how they raised us. And how much emphasis put on the respect of other religions and I think that's that's what made for me and easier transition and they have never had a problem with the fact that I've converted and I want to talk about your book. Yes called with all due respect out. Now congratulations thank you a lot of fun to write very therapeutic. I can imagine but in one of the sections. I know you talk about your faith in the book but in one of the sections you talk about the Charleston shooting which you just mentioned in how much you relied on your faith to get you through that you also made the decision to take down the confederate flag can at the State House grounds. And you said at the time that it because of the connection in the connotation to hatred and racism At I know recently you WanNa Glenn Back and you said that you caused a little controversy in that interview. You said that some saw the confederate flag is service and sacrifice and heritage. And that Dylann unroofed. The gunmen hijacked it. Some people felt that this was a reversal. Because in two thousand fifteen you say that it's deeply offensive symbol of brutally oppressive past. I was at a reversal. So telling of how toxic politics has gotten literally the same words I said in Glen on the Glenn Beck Show are the same words. I said in twenty-fifty if you go back and read my speech where I'm asking for the flag to come down. I talk about how some some people in the state saw the flag and related to service and heritage and talk about the other people in the state that saw all the flag and felt pain. And what I said was. We don't want anyone in our state to feel pain when they see that flag and I went on onto say not to judge either side as a governor. That's not your job. You Represent All people what it was was. I need all of you to come together. You can have respect for the confederate flag. But we're going to move it to a museum because it is a living breathing symbol. That does not represent. Is that all of the people in the state and went on to talk about. How if it causes any child pain when they passed that Nate House? There's something wrong and and we needed to pull it down. Had I gone and said that half the state was racist. That flag would never have come
Atheist Experience with Matt Dillahunty & Don Baker
"Today's January twenty six two thousand nineteen. I'm your host Matt Dillon. Are you on some edzard. What's the deal joining me? This is John Baker. We are here in the sense to go. Then I know how you doing out there in the world. Yeah Yeah Yeah we are. We're live and You know stuff happens zip so after having by the way I'm GonNa talk some. ACA Business for funsies so after having solved our Toilet problem and then authorizing the board authorized the expense of nineteen thousand dollars words to replace the concrete sewer line that drains. It's been there for fifty six years or whatever and there's tree roots growing through it so it has to be done and that's just what it's going to be it comes out here. Runs runs out to the street. We're GONNA replace that. Everything's working after clearing it out Today it's not so it's a good thing that the port bodies still here however The repairs are we're gonNA be done Soon and then hopefully be working But that's a good point to remind people that you can become a patron and supporter of the Atheist Community of Authentic Pedro Dot com slash the atheist atheist experience. And that's the. That's the way we use your money. We should sell naming rights to that toilet we should. It's it's which ever apologised donates the most modern there you go it will become their throne and put their name on it. No it's it's all good but yeah I just got her this morning so yesterday we we were doing a series of adventures outings. The errands our a new board member and Events Coordinator and so we had done The Texas Renaissance Fair but yesterday we went to the Houston Museum of Natural Science And the planetarium originally it was just. We're going to the planetarium for the pink. Floyd show okay and I have some comments about that first of all these still do that. Yeah that was the thing back when I was a kid. Yeah it's actually the same thing is it. Oh my goodness so Thanks Aaron for organizing. This is and I'm glad we went and I enjoyed the show. But if I driven two and a half hours to Houston and two and a half hours back to see the forty you know listen to dark side of the moon and watch graphics that were originally done in like the ninety S. I might have been disappointed however as it turns out. Since there's nothing else there at the planetarium property theater you know and I want to go back and see like some space stuff but we did get to walk around That museum in Houston great stuff. There had a great time That would incredibly good dinosaur collection mhm they multiple t rexes and Other we we joked that we're going to spend all day looking at rocks because the fossils are essentially rocks walks. The rocks that the fossils are in Iraq's the gemstone collection is rocks pretty rocks the pottery and stuff that that's done by the Americans. No no no no. The taxidermy. Stuff was not rocks. But I decided that for fun we would say we went look rocks and stuffed animals malls because that's basically There was some good stuff. There is A Nice Egyptian exhibit. some cool stuff on you know evolution Asian in good dating and probably not as informative and educational as much as it is observational. But I out a really good time there Lots of stuff to see and I was exhausted by the time I got home. Lives her Sherwin so for the first time in eight is the dominant Demille Museum. We drove passive the Fine Arts Museum which caught my attention because Their advertisement is girl with a Pearl earring. The VERMEILLE vermeer not for me But also at the at that. Here's the museum they had Faberge display including a faberge egg a bunch of items that were created. It was a good day and so so While we just drove my truck and didn't use the van because there weren't that many people who showed up here and some people just met US there Yeah if for the people who who are in the Austin area or going to be in the area buildings open seven days a week roughly from eleven to nine or so. There's a number of events going on including various gaming gatherings and philosophical off discussions and then the hosts were recording countless shows now in addition to the experience and talk to them which was on earlier Friday nights is truth. Wanted but there was a problem with the Internet and so that that truth wanted is going to air immediately after this I believe on the same channel. Same as we've done for other things so if you missed ocoee or if you missed wanted on Friday you'll be able to watch it. The the official premiere of the recorded version of a live show immediately following. If you can't get enough atheism today and you should do right. Because there wasn't very I was here when they were recording. There wasn't all that much atheism on there. There was Interesting pay perhaps conspiracy theorist type stuff off and on and some good discussions. Yeah and Topaz imaginary friends. Okay yeah that you know Dan Had Eric Murphy theonest guest. And so that'd be airing right after this. In addition to the atheist experience. Talk here then truth. Wanted we also produce godless bitches. Parenting beyond belief Secular sexuality which Airs Live Live on Thursdays and Just way too much stuff for me to name but not too much stuff for you to watch because we're finally producing enough content so that it's is not just ooh call in and argue with the douchebag you know me being the Douchebag News twenty four hours a day every day I I would do this show every single day for three hours. My goodness Yeah so life man is his life. This is this is like a okay so anyway You have been doing this show longer than I have a calendar time by a couple of years. But you've gone far more episodes awesome. I have yeah but I haven't done as many episodes on failures and where where I come in with the topic all the time I I do try to do that. And today you have in other topic another topic is kind of a light topic today Last time I talked about God's anointed leaders And how the Bible sort of says you know every every leader is anointed by God and chosen by God and you better damn will obey them Today I have an editorial from the magazine Christianity Andy Today that came out December nineteenth and It's about the about the impeachment trial and such and I'm going to read read a couple of quotes from it and then read a couple of his responses and that'll be my topic today And as a reminder yeah The Atheist Community Boston is is nonpartisan nonpartisan and we're not endorsing any candidate or anything else but we can in fact talk about issues and we can talk about people's positions on issues and stuff like that. It's right so we're not telling you who to vote for absolutely absolutely not. Well we would like you to vote. Though I can not voting as a good thing I can take opposition to other people to participate in the system. especially if you're going to be one of the people who complains about the right. which would you everybody complains about? I I loved hearing from people complaining. They're like I don't voting's a waste of time and all I'm tired of voting for the lesser of two evils. Well if you even if you view it that way where there's two evils voting for the less of lesser of those two evils is by your own admission the better choice and and if by not voting the worst of the two evils gets elected or gets passed as legislation you basically implicitly supported and endorsed the greater of the two who evils by not on sending a message. Okay yes you are are sending a message and don't get me wrong apathetic. I used to be on it. I I was largely apolitical. I didn't care. I didn't think my vote Matt. Oh I live in you. Know in this place and it's going to go read or it's GonNa go blue depending on what my vote doesn't matter. There's lots of other reasons listens to vote and it's not. I think I think when people do that. Oh I'm vote. Why would I vote for the lesser of two evils I think that's a a gross oversample simplification perhaps misrepresentation but it. Lets me know that they're at least okay. And and actually I've seen people post that I'm not gonNa vote for the last two evils. Let the let the worst or the of the two evils have it and let this whole thing burned down and crumble. So that we can start over again attend because Yeah the the sausage making making isn't very pretty there. Yeah it's also an issue of like the perfect is the enemy of the good and if you expect the there's not a single candidate or probably not even a piece of legislation that I would remotely consider perfect If anything politics is the art of compromise and if nobody's particularly happy happy the argument is that you probably done pretty good but if if you're waiting for perfection if you have some kind of Utopian ideal yeah then you're GonNa find yourself constantly disappointed and sometimes you go with this just better or this is good enough and this gets the foot in the door to allow you know. Allow us to continue continue improving.

"She said, you're welcome Portland. So good for her. Feel like like I know that Dame plays the disrespect card, and he is an awesome player and the shots that he hit and game one. I mean, I was sitting in the airport getting ready to fly out here. Watching the game on watch ESPN on my phone with my headphones and just sitting in the airport half the airport is delayed because whether yesterday in Chicago, which messed everything up and he takes that shot. And I just my head staff back that I just like exclaimed, which I never do. I was so impressed with that shot. It was like a Ralph Lawler exclamation only. Am I it was just like? Q? No, like, they might have send people over to make sure I was okay. Because I was so impressed with that shot like Dame is awesome. But like he's on my MVP ballot. Brian interesting that you said that, but he's not on yours. He was on my second T-ball MBA. He so generally my first team all MBA less. There's some unusual circumstances is my ballot. Joel Embiid was on my ballot. Mhm Steph curry was on my ballot. He's fifth on my ballot. As he was on my first team, all MBA. And I don't think that saying that Damian Lillard is the third best guard in the NBA is an insult. I think that's an appropriate place to put them not at all. I do. I mean, the absolutely not. And he's that's where he is on my MBA team is well, I do think though that MVP Allenby or two different things. I think that we don't have. I mean, I'm not gonna I'm not gonna do my entire speech for you. But the effect that we don't have all where. Yes. But no. But we don't have any way of saying. This is the best player in the NBA. We still haven't fixed that and even all MBA isn't really a way to say. Here's the best fifteen players in the NBA because they're still make us do it by positions, which is something that needs to be reformed as well. So all MBA is at least closer to. Okay. Who are the best players in the league? Whereas MVP is supposed to be a little bit more about value. And as much as I love, you know, we talked about our ballots and Steph curry this year is not I'm he's on your MVP valid on. He is not on mine. I think Steph curry is like Newquay. Question one of the top players in the league. And he is on my first team Mamba, Damian Lillard is not but his value is diminished on a team with other players who were so exceptional. If he misses games. They don't play quite the same with Steph. We've looked at all those comps they still win games. Right. If Damian Lillard off that team, they don't win, and especially when York went down and CJ was in playing for that long stretch that it is a very compelling point. And especially since when I had to make the my mind up on the third team all NBA guards, which was a super duper duper important vote. I went with Bradley Beal, and Russell Westbrook because the ask of them on a nightly basis is so big versus like because I really wanted to put clay on there. But comparing what clay does every night to compare what Russia's says every night, not comparable. So that's that can save your point is well taken and but again, putting Kevin Dame six in my mind versus v. It's not. It's not meant to be an insult. But at the end of the day. This is a great opportunity for Portland. They're playing a team. That is weakened Paul George is weakened. We'll say he looked weakened in game one. Okay. I am curious to see what happens..

Because those are the people who are going to again like I said manifest illness Mhm couples know if they have secure functioning and their relationship secure functioning means that were in the foxhole together. Were like cop car partners we may disagree about a lot of things, we have different interests but we we are interdependent, on some fundamental levels such as survival we need each. Other to survive we have each other's backs were were you know radically loyal to each other. Because we can be and because we exist in a world that is not going to be with us so it's this is an adult agreement. Between people who could do otherwise but they elect. To be experts on each other protect each, other from each other in from everybody else and we have examples of this all over the world. And and in different socio economic backgrounds people are able to do this because they realize that there is nothing else but to protect each other into to look out, for each other, so that's What secure functioning it is if you're in a relationship that fails to unfair, to unjust to insensitive to.

We don't embarrass each other in public or private on we, keep our, secrets, to each, other we don't leak outside of the relationship. And poison the well you know we We, are good representations of of what we're building that sort of thing called a relationship that we protect with our lives because our lives depend on it so it it, is that's the the bubble basically we determine who gets in who doesn't get in and who can take the resources. From us and, that includes children. In laws x.'s but also drugs and alcohol and other activities that could compete stand you, talk a lot about thirds and. Your writing and when you're teaching other clinicians right like you've just mentioned them can. You describe the concept of thirds and how couples might conceptualize them.
