A highlight from Bitcoin Hits $30,000 | Outperforming Market
"All right, so Bitcoin breaking 30k, this of course has a lot of potential impact on the market at large and how all of this is shaking out. There's a lot of mixed signals here. We're going to try to break through that all today. You guys are going to love it. My name is Paul Veron. Welcome back in the Tech Path. Let's jump over to one event that's happening right now. There's so many things happening right now. Pretty much all at the same time, it feels like. Jim Jordan fails to win the house again. This is the third vote. Jordan is not giving this up. Remember McCarthy, it took I think 15 rounds to get him certified in to the speaker role. The question is whether or not there's a lot of people that do not want Jordan in. Obviously he is not necessarily a, I won't say he's a positive crypto, but he has no opinion. But the other scenario that could play into this is we could see someone that is pro -crypto still. So you've got a couple of people that have jumped ship, and that is Don Bacon, voted for McHenry. Lori Chavez, DeRaymer also voted for McHenry. Brian Fitzpatrick flipped over to McHenry. This is a new vote against Jordan. And then McCarthy, Jennifer Kiggins also voted for McHenry. Mike Lawler, which we knew about earlier in the week. And then Marian Miller Meeks also for McHenry. So there's some new people within the Republicans now starting to put McHenry up at the top of the list here. Whether we see Jordan or McHenry jump in, McHenry would be very positive for crypto. He obviously, in support of the bills there in the house, most likely would get them through before these sessions close out and possibly get us some legislation before the end of the year. We'll see how that all comes together. Here I want to jump over to a clip from CNBC. And this was with Powell, and many of you have probably seen some of this. But I just want to play this clip real quick. So no, I don't think that there's a fundamental shift in the way that interest rates affect the economy. There may be some differences in this cycle because of what I mentioned. As I mentioned, we are seeing the effects where we expect to see them, which is interest sensitive spending and also asset prices to some extent and the exchange rate, which you're also seeing a strong exchange rate, which is disinflationary. So I don't think there's a fundamental change in the way monetary policy affects the economy. And again, it goes back to just very strong demand. We take the economy as it is. We take fiscal policy and the economy and all the things we don't control. They come to us, and we conduct policy always to achieve maximum employment and stable prices. So we just take what comes. The fact that we have a strong growing economy, a strong growing labor market, and inflation coming down, these are the elements that we want to see that to achieve the outcome we want. So I'm going to pause it there because he feels to me like there's a little bit of double speak there in the sense that there's still pressure from the Fed to continue higher for longer and also to try to achieve the 2 percent in terms of an inflation target. But at the same time, they're still saying, hey, these things are still happening in the economy when clearly that is not necessarily the case. We are seeing problems in the economy that are running up against us, and that's including job numbers, including the crackdown on credit, including the situation with what we've seen on mortgage backed securities. We are going to see a lot of implosion yet to come. And I think this is the thing that plays out. You look at a couple more tweets and this is where it gets confusing, I think, and then everybody's kind of in the same boat. Here's Kobe Easey talking about stocks are falling like a recession is coming. Home prices are rising like there's no recession with an 8 percent mortgage, by the way. Bonds are falling like the Fed is raising rates. Gold is rising like the Fed is cutting rates. And then you have oil prices rising like a major war is coming. That is very possible. And then tech stocks rising like there's no problem at all. So nothing really adds up. I agree that this is something we've talked about for I'd say the last year is that some of these things just don't make sense with what we've seen in this cycle. And remember that we've been on a run for many, many years. Well over that cycle of a seven year cycle before you see recessions, we're into 15 plus years now. And when you look back really at the last true recession in 2008, I mean, sure you could say the 2020 time was a slight one and maybe 22, but that was induced. The scenario will get into what kind of impressions or issues hit the markets to cause this to maybe shift in another direction, including a shift down. This was Garris Holloway kind of hitting on what I think is pretty close right here. Gold hitting resistance at about 1985, big level. Stock market hanging by a thread with a crisis on the horizon, yields continue higher. All that we know. And the Powell, of course, willing to break something, but history shows Fed won't be causes an epic meltdown. That's the question mark right now is what is that black swan that is in a war? Is it something happening in the job market? Do we see enough pressure from inflation and or credit crisis that could occur that really starts all of this to create that domino effect? The problem is there hasn't been major movement. It's in these little steps toward what many people have said is that we're still not out of the woods yet. However, with all of that happening, Bitcoin is outperforming everything. Traditional finance assets in 2023, Bitcoin is smoking the competition as high as $30 ,000 to on October 20th of this Friday moves markets to another correlation is the question mark whether we see it break away from traditional stock market. We'll see. And then right now, about 79 percent and 34 percent accumulated gains on year to date versus Bitcoin and Ethereum. That number is one to pay attention to. Let me zoom in on this chart right here, because this gets you pretty jazzed if you're a Bitcoiner right now. Almost 80 percent up, and that's where we at currently year to date from the beginning of the year. And then Ethereum struggling to keep pace at only 35 percent. And then you see some of the other assets, gold sliding up as 26 percent gain. I'm sure Peter Schiff will be happy about that versus NASDAQ and the SPY. So a lot of traditional finance assets not performing at the pace in which we've seen these risk assets perform. Do we see a structure here where we get that adjustment? Many traders, many analysts still believe that could occur. However, many people are also looking at a short term pump if we do get an ETF. So there's a lot still yet to determine. Watcher Guru says just in, SEC drops lawsuit against Ripple. Some people think this is one of the things that caused this pump, even though I do not believe that. This was the only thing. I think these are a cumulative effect on what's been happening overall from a global macro standpoint. Obviously what we're seeing in terms of conflicts. And then you have things like what's happening in China. Right here. You know, right here is Vale share cap. This of course, Dr. Bear. If you have a reasons I have mine, meaningful moves are always driven by liquidity. And the PBOC injects, this is basically China, injects record amount of liquidity overnight. Remember, there's been another major real estate failure in China. This is one of the big challenges past the Evergrande debacle that's occurred already, which has caused liquidity and also not a lot of trust in the financial system in China. So this is another factor that plays in it when you inject liquidity. Much like if this happened in the United States. Think about this, major bank failures, someone like a BlackRock or a VanEck having troubles. Those would create massive unrest within the population. That's the kind of thing that's happening right now in China. Zero hedge comes in when oil, gold and bitcoin are all flights of safety. Something is about to crack. That's a question. I don't know. I look at this. Yes, I agree with that there's a lot of pressure from the macro side of things. There's a lot of unrest, you know, you know, from when you look at conflicts around globe. And you also look at these cycles. So that's another factor that plays into it. All of this a very interesting time. But there are going to be some people that are being made millionaires in this run or billionaires in this next run. We are going to see that kind of impact. The other thing I want to hit on here is VanEck saying, well, hey, if a spot gets done, you know, in terms of an ETF and it gets approved, kind of zoom in on that for you guys a little bit so you can see it. What would you do? Would you buy it or not? Most people are saying when I say most, we're almost 60 percent saying yes, but there's a lot of people out there that are still in the market that is for the direct asset. Now this remember a spot, yes, that is direct asset as well. But it's a little bit different in the sense that I think it goes after maybe investors that who are not necessarily in their crypto curious or they're just getting into crypto for the first time. But I have a feeling that that will start to create them to quickly move into the markets on exchanges to buy Bitcoin directly and other assets, which I think all coins will be one of the big winners here as we start to see these markets start to shift. We're going to play a few clips here from Dan Tappiero. And this was one with Larry Fink and the ETF. Listen in. The Larry Fink turn for, I would say, institutional investors was very important. Do not underestimate that. Two years ago, he was very clear. He said Bitcoin is a fraud for money laundering or whatever it was. And we're thinking, oh, my gosh, how could he say that? Two years later, he says Bitcoin is a global asset and he wants the ETF. So I would not underestimate the importance of that switch and those comments to let's just say, you know, U .S. institutional capital, but also, I think, global capital. He's you know, it's a 10 trillion asset manager, very well respected. And it seems like every few months we get another turn like that. Some guy who was an ace here turned some. Yeah. I mean, even Dalia, you know, to a certain extent is also kind of repositioned into risk assets. So the fact that we've already seen Wall Street at its best with the big players such as Fink already spinning. Remember, there was a very interesting flip with Fink and that was the ESG issue. That, of course, would play against the potential of a Bitcoin ETF, because remember, so he obviously sees, meaning Larry Fink, obviously sees the future here, not in ESG, but in what we will see. And that is risk assets going forward and a lot of what we're going to see around just crypto in general. Let me play another clip for you guys. This is Tapiero also talking about the sector in general, listen to him. I just wanted a bet on the sector. And that was, so for traditional macro guy, I built a sector bet and it's a portfolio, you know, as I said, of 24 businesses now, 1 .2 billion. And we really are in the middle of this ecosystem, this growth stage. So it was, you asked me the question, how did it happen? Well, it happened slowly and then all at once. And then I put down everything, I got rid of everything I had in the traditional world. I don't have really much exposure in the old world anymore. Once you see the upside potential and how big the TAM, the total addressable market of this space is, everything else is really dull. I mean, you know, bonds and currencies, I mean, moving 10 or 20 percent, who cares? This is like a, this will be eventually a restructuring of how human beings interact with value. That's pretty big. You know, listen, I know everybody watching our channel, you already are drinking the Kool -Aid, most likely, but if you're new to the channel, this is probably an eye -opener for you. You're probably saying, wait a minute, what's about to change? Well, what Tapiero is referring to is really kind of shift of everything, whether it's tokenized securities or it's a blow up of how we see entertainment in the NFT space, it's a blow up on what we'll see in terms of projects starting to come out and a reinvention of the internet. So all of that is interesting because it's happening now and it's happening at a pace. I think I would disagree with him on sense that kind of slowly and then all at once, I don't think we've seen the all at once yet. Yes, it's growing, but it's still under a trillion dollar market cap in a suppressed bear market. So we're not really seeing the all at once yet, but we will. And that's the key that I think he is alluding to, lots of going on there. Let me jump over to this last clip. Actually, I have a couple more clips with him, but one on tokenized assets. Even this concept of tokenizing real world assets, RWAs, which has now become a little bit, has been growing a little more in vogue in the last six months, is still, we went from $100 million of assets tokenized to now $800 million in a few months. But it's $800 million. There are hundreds of trillions of dollars worth of assets. So, you know, and then you look at something like the stablecoin market, which literally three years ago was zero. And last year in 2022, you had $8 trillion of stablecoin settled, $8 trillion. Now, what in the traditional world goes from zero to $8 trillion in three years? At some point in the future, all things of value will sit on a blockchain and be in the digital asset ecosystem. And so that is something, a vision that's beyond just Bitcoin for payments, which is for six, seven, eight years. That's what people were focused on. I don't think anyone would have imagined how big and how fast things have grown.
"marian" Discussed on Let's Talk About It
"But basically ever since then, during one of the apparitions, she told Bernadette to go and to start digging, and a miraculous spring appeared and she told Bernadette to like bathe herself in the water and drink from the water. And it's from that spring that at the time of Bernadette, I believe there were two miraculous healings that happened, and that's what started kind of drawing attention of people that now, hundreds of years later, I think it's eight million people every year go to the shrine to drink the water and like pray there and ask for healing and for grace. So that's kind of like a mini history of the place, and I can get into more details like as we go about different apparitions and things that happened, but that's why like a basic history is that we believe she appeared to Bernadette and a spring appeared. She told her to go dig, and they was going and like digging and like drinking the water and basically had like mud all over her face because the water was all muddy and people were like, what is happening? Because they couldn't see Mary. That's something also that during these Marian apparitions, it's only the one person that can actually see Mary. So no one else around her could see Mary, so they were kind of like, what is happening? Because during the time, she saw Mary and then she went and was like telling people that she saw someone there. At first, she thought she was crazy. She was like, wait a second, like what is happening? And people started to like follow her there and like be with her as Mary would appear to go and pray because some people believed like, oh, she must actually be seeing something divine or someone divine. They weren't really sure exactly who, and that's how it started to gain traction. And then from, yeah, from the shrine, from the spring that came, there were two immediate like miraculous healings that happened. So that was part of the like proof that this was actually divine and not either that she was crazy or something demonic because you also have to rule out that it's not like a demon trying to present itself as like something divine. Something else that happened was as these subsequent visits were happening, the lady asked for a chapel to be built on the grounds for Bernadette to pray for the conversion of sinners and for her to drink the spring water that was revealed to her at the grotto. So if you listen to our episode about Our Lady of Guadalupe, which was another Marian apparition, that was also one where Mary asked Juan Diego to have a church be built and he went to the bishop and the bishop was like, I don't care, like you're not important to me and I don't believe you that anyone is appearing to you from heaven. And basically turned him away and then he had to come back and there were like miraculous signs shown to the bishop to like prove to him that it was actually miraculous. A similar thing happened with Bernadette. She was an illiterate, uneducated peasant who her, actually her family at the time was very poor. Like they went through financial troubles and they all lived in this like little, like this old prison that had been abandoned. They all lived in this one room and we actually got to visit that room. And lords, you can like take footsteps to see where she lived and where her family lived. And her father was put in prison because he was accused of like not providing for his family and them being malnourished and he was accused of all of these things. So like her family also did not have a good reputation in the town and she was just like this old like peasant girl that couldn't read, couldn't write, couldn't do anything. So she was just seen as very not important. So when she went to the bishop and she spoke in a dialect that was also like very uneducated, the people that spoke in her dialect. So he didn't believe her and one of the reasons that he did eventually believe her was one, she asked for roses to grow. It was like the dead of the winter there and like roses grew where they shouldn't have grown or like there was no reason that they should have. So that was one sign. And then another sign was when Mary appeared to her, she never like said to Bernadette, I am Mary. And so she would appear and Bernadette just felt like this inner peace that it was someone from heaven. But she eventually like kept asking her. She was like, who are you? Who are you? Like can you please tell me? Because many of the operations she didn't even speak. She was just completely silent. Bernadette like and she wrote that she said that she was, I am the Immaculate Conception, which is something that she said to Bernadette. And Bernadette ran back to the bishop and kept repeating it over and over again because she didn't know what it meant. She was not educated. She had no idea what I am the Immaculate Conception meant. And she ran back to the bishop and kept repeating it to herself over and over and went to him. And then he was like, oh this must be, she must be actually seeing somebody from heaven. She's not lying to me because there's no reason that she should know what that means. She doesn't know what it means. And that's how he knew it was the Blessed Mother because four years earlier was when the church had established the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception of Mary, which is four years earlier. So that was interesting that it was only four years later. And at the shrine right under where Mary is where we believe like she appeared, there's a statue of Mary and it says right there like yo soy like something, whatever the dialect, k soy Immaculate Conception or whatever the dialect is that she would have said it to Bernadette in. So that was another sign that it was like, okay she's not lying and she's not crazy because there's no way she could have come up with this herself. And I think it was two years later, actually I don't know how many years later it was, I think I have it here, that the bishop finally like declared, I think it was four years later, four years after he actually declared that it was Mary and that people were approved to go to the site and drink the water and that it could become like a religious site. Because then we can talk about that more too, like it has to go through approval that it can be seen as like a religious site that pilgrims can go to and pray and have mass and like all of that. And now it's turned into I think like the biggest one I'd have to look up if Guadalupe is more heavily visited but it's definitely one of the top three, Fatima, Lourdes, Guadalupe are the most popular. So that's just a rundown of some of the history and like I said I'll leave links so that you can read more about this yourself if you're interested because that's just some of it. Yeah I don't know Megan if you have any questions or... That's like basically yeah just an overview. You said it was 1853? 1858. On February 11th. Do you remember when Guadalupe was? Guadalupe was way before that, I think that was the 1600s. Let me look that up really quickly, I should know that but I cannot think of it off the top of my head but it was first. Yeah, yeah you guys should go and listen to that episode if you haven't because that would also- there's a lot of connections. Oh that was even before, it was 1531 so that was way before, it was like 300 years before. But something that I think is really interesting is that every time she's appeared to someone it's been someone that's very insignificant and not important and someone that no one believes at first. Which yeah, that's something that I think is really moving for me as someone that fully believes in the apparitions and I know for people, especially for Guadalupe, it's like very moving for people that might also be the same race as the person that they were appeared to or like the same status or I think it just shows how God really does raise up, like he says in scripture, like he raises up the lowly and he- it's not often the people that as a worldly status are seen as important or wealthy or rich or educated that God sees, like that's not what makes- that's not what makes someone important or holy in the eyes of God and that's something that's really special about lords and very apparent at lords is that the people that the world sees is not that useful or not that worthy and especially in history before Jesus came that if someone was disabled or sick or old they used to just literally kill them or like throw them off a cliff because they were not seen as useful and those are like the VIP of lords or the sick, the elderly, the old, the poor, they're treated with such like reverence and so are so withheld like there's a special place in lords where when they come to visit like they get to stay is in these like very nice residents like on these nice like right by the shrine, these very nice rooms and such so I don't know, I just think that's something that's always been special to me about the apparitions is they've always been to people that the world would not see as important or as significant and I think that just goes along very well with the Christian message as well, I don't know that is something that always touches me because she was just this 14 year old little peasant girl also similar to that Jesus decided to be born of someone that was not important like in his you know Mary was not I don't know very important at the time so I don't know I think that's something that's just always been really touching to me.

"Hey, welcome back to Let's Talk About It with Jackie and Megan. We like to talk about things that are messy, awkward, hard, or controversial, and create a space for healing. Well, welcome to... is this season five? Yeah, I don't actually, I don't know. I think it is, yeah. We only loosely keep track. Yeah, we loosely keep track at this point, but I feel like a lot of big podcasters, they don't even do seasons anymore, they just like record whenever they can. Today we're talking about that I went to Lourdes, which we hinted at last episode. Yeah, how was it there? It was great. I think before we share this episode, well, maybe along with sharing it, I'll share some of my pictures on our podcast Instagram, so you should go over there if you don't follow us, but it was kind of everything I expected and not what I expected. I don't know how to explain it. I had not seen any pictures of it besides the actual grotto where Mary appeared to Bernadette, so I knew what that looked like because you see pictures of that everywhere, but I had not really looked at pictures of Lourdes because I just wanted to not have expectations. I think I said before, I just want to go into this without expectations, and I kind of want to let God just do whatever he's going to do while I'm there because I don't want to be disappointed or, I don't know, I don't want to have a lot of expectations. I didn't even look at any pictures of Lourdes, but Lourdes was so much more beautiful than I even expected. It's up in the Pyrenees Mountains, so it's surrounded by mountains, which are just absolutely gorgeous. Meghan, you've been to Greece and you've been to mountains, and I just feel like there's just no way to describe. And then just the way that European cities look is just so beautiful, and I just think Europe is so much more beautiful than the United States. It just is. We have beautiful places with mountains and such, but just the town and everything around it and the culture, I don't know. Maybe it's just because I'm also not familiar with it, but it's just so great to me. But yeah, it was beautiful. And the church there is ridiculous. The cathedral at Lourdes, which yeah, we'll share a lot of pictures, but in the cathedral, which basically looks like if you walk into Disneyland, it kind of looks like the castle at Disneyland. And so there's the joke that Lourdes is like Catholic Disneyland because it's just so gorgeous and it kind of looks like a palace, the church there. And that was one of my favorite moments when I walked into Lourdes the first time. We got to the hotel first the night before, and then we walked down to the actual shrine, and just walking down and seeing it for the first time, I walked in with my friend and I was literally just hitting him on the arm because I was so excited and it was so beautiful. Yeah, there's like five churches in this one church. There's like, on the lower level, you can walk up and there's stairs and you can walk in, and there's this beautiful cathedral. I think it's the biggest of all the cathedrals. And then on either side, there's like, from either the bottom, you can go up this set of stairs to go toward like the top, or on the side, there's like two giant ramps that you like can go up, and you can get to the top, and there's a bottom door you can go in that's one cathedral, and there's a set of two little stairs above that door where you could go in and then go in, and there's a different church. And at the very top one, there's two side chapels off to the side before you would walk into the main church. So there's like five churches in this one giant church, and I don't know the history exactly of like how long it took, because I'm assuming it took a long time, to like build an add-on and all of that. I don't know exactly how long all of that took, but yeah, that was super cool. And we went with a Catholic priest, he's the one that led the pilgrimage, and he's one of, there's like a thousand priests that are like official priests of the shrine in Lourdes, and he's one of them because he's been going there for so long, so he got that status. So we were able to say to have Mass said in different parts of the cathedral, so yeah, I don't know. It's like, it's really hard to explain unless you've been there, but it's yeah, it's definitely very beautiful and stunning, and I had a great time, which I guess I'll talk all about in this episode, so stay tuned. So for someone like me who did not grow up with many Catholics, I'm not super familiar with a lot of the like Marian apparitions or anything, like really until I think I was friends with you, I didn't even know it was a thing. So for someone listening who's maybe in a similar position, what is the significance and the history of Lourdes? Okay, so I guess I can start with that. So I'm gonna go to my notes here because I don't want to mess it up. This region of France, which where Lourdes is, was a strategic stronghold during medieval times, and it's like situated at the foot of the Pyrenees, which I talked about, and the medieval castle of Lourdes provided protection against foreign forces. So this was like a very significant part of France. During the Hundred Years War, the French captured this region from the English in 1406 after an 18-month siege. The medieval castle was used as a state prison from the reign of Louis the 14th, so that's something interesting. So in 1858, basically when we believe that Mary appeared to Bernadette, it was still known as a military and state stronghold. So like this place that now has been turned into like this very religious town before was a military and like state stronghold. So we believe it was in 1858, so I don't know how many years ago that was at this point, a long time, between February 11th and July 16th the Virgin Mary appeared to this young peasant girl named Bernadette. I don't know how to say her last name, it starts with an S, but we'll put it in the show notes. She was a 14-year-old girl, and we believe that she appeared to her 18 different times. And I won't get into the details of each of those apparitions, but I'll leave a link if you want to like read the story of some of the more significant apparitions.
A highlight from Episode 62: I went to Lourdes! // Marian Apparitions & Miraculous Healings

So there's like five churches in this one giant church, and I don't know the history exactly of like how long it took, because I'm assuming it took a long time, to like build an add -on and all of that. I don't know exactly how long all of that took, but yeah, that was super cool. And we went with a Catholic priest, he's the one that led the pilgrimage, and he's one of, there's like a thousand priests that are like official priests of the shrine in Lourdes, and he's one of them because he's been going there for so long, so he got that status. So we were able to say to have Mass said in different parts of the cathedral, so yeah, I don't know. It's like, it's really hard to explain unless you've been there, but it's yeah, it's definitely very beautiful and stunning, and I had a great time, which I guess I'll talk all about in this episode, so stay tuned. So for someone like me who did not grow up with many Catholics, I'm not super familiar with a lot of the like Marian apparitions or anything, like really until I think I was friends with you, I didn't even know it was a thing. So for someone listening who's maybe in a similar position, what is the significance and the history of Lourdes? Okay, so I guess I can start with that. So I'm gonna go to my notes here because I don't want to mess it up. This region of France, which where Lourdes is, was a strategic stronghold during medieval times, and it's like situated at the foot of the Pyrenees, which I talked about, and the medieval castle of Lourdes provided protection against foreign forces. So this was like a very significant part of France. During the Hundred Years War, the French captured this region from the English in 1406 after an 18 -month siege. The medieval castle was used as a state prison from the reign of Louis the 14th, so that's something interesting. So in 1858, basically when we believe that Mary appeared to Bernadette, it was still known as a military and state stronghold. So like this place that now has been turned into like this very religious town before was a military and like state stronghold. So we believe it was in 1858, so I don't know how many years ago that was at this point, a long time, between February 11th and July 16th the Virgin Mary appeared to this young peasant girl named Bernadette. I don't know how to say her last name, it starts with an S, but we'll put it in the show notes. She was a 14 -year -old girl, and we believe that she appeared to her 18 different times. And I won't get into the details of each of those apparitions, but I'll leave a link if you want to like read the story of some of the more significant apparitions.

With Father Bryce Higginbotham, we go inside the pages of Remaining with Jesus, Discipleship and the Gospel of John, published by Loyola Press. Father Bryce, thank you so much for joining me. Thank you, Chris. It's great to be here with you. I've been looking forward to talking to you about Remaining with Jesus, Discipleship and the Gospel of John. It's such a lovely work. It's my favorite gospel. I mean, first I got to say, how can you have a favorite gospel? And yet for the Gospel of John, there's something so tender and special about this particular work that I'm just so grateful that you chose this as something to explore. Well, the Lord is good. He gives us four gospels to give us various perspectives on Jesus and not differences, but like God, there's a line that I love. I think it's in 1 Corinthians, which talks about how the Lord reveals to us the many sided wisdom of God. As if we look at Jesus from the perspective of St. Mark, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and we see a particular shade or a particular side of his glory and of who he is. And then from the perspective of St. Luke, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and we see a particular revelation, a way that God has revealed himself to us. So I think it's really beautiful and a gift that the Lord has given us these four gospels. We can see him more clearly through looking at him from these four different directions. I think it's a gift. But yeah, I mean, I think John is my favorite too, because, well, I don't know, it's just a particular way that that way that God reveals himself or the parts about himself that he chose to reveal through John, like speaks to me, at least in a particular way. He is the beloved disciple, isn't he? I mean, the one who was able to rest his head on the heart of Jesus and to listen very deeply, even so much that the Lord would give his mother to his care while on the cross. And so can you imagine what it must have been like for the woman who knew our Lord so intimately and this beloved disciple as they shared and they pondered and they ruminated over all the events that had occurred in their lifetime and their experience of Jesus? And you have to think sometimes, don't you, Father, that Marian dimension is very evident in the Gospel of John? Yeah, I think of what John says after Jesus gives marriage to him from the cross and he took her into his own. I think John Paul II makes a big deal out of that because it's right, like it doesn't just mean that he took her to his house, though he did, but it means like that he took her, so to speak, into his heart and learn, learn from Mary how to be a disciple, learn from Mary how to be a priest, how to be a bishop. So, yeah, it's John gives us an example of learning from Mary. And he did that clearly. He did that because he clearly learned from her how to ponder all these things in his heart. I think that's why part of the reason, at least John's Gospel is so different from Matthew's, Mark's and Luke's, because John had more time and he wrote his Gospel last after the others had been written. He probably read the others and he had spent all this time with Mary and with the rest of the scriptures pondering these things in her heart so that he could then give us this particularly deep look into the life of Jesus. And even at the beginning, in the first 18 verses, John gives us the look into the life of Jesus with the Father before creation and after creation, before the incarnation. It so is fitting then to have the Gospel of John, the beloved disciple, the apostle who knew him so well, to help give us a guide in that discipleship. And that's what you really bring forward. It is so penetrating. It's just how you've led us into that opportunity to become that type of disciple. Yeah, well, I mean, we're really blessed that John led us. The Holy Spirit led John, John led us. And, you know, all that I had to do and praise God, I was able to do it and was just bring out what John himself was saying, because he talks about discipleship more than any other than any other book in the New Testament or the Old Testament, any other book in the whole Bible. The discipleship is more pronounced in the Gospel of John than anywhere else. And you also point out that in the Gospel of John, that there are two words. Now they're popping more than ever for me as I go back and I read the Gospel of John, which I try to do very often during the week, actually. And it's the two words believe and remain. Where I started with the research, I just want to know what it meant to be a disciple, because clearly we're supposed to be disciples. There are lots of good books about discipleship, but there were none that I found that sufficiently engaged the Bible. It's like, what does the Bible tell us about discipleship? So I found out that I looked at where discipleship was used in the Bible and I found out that John talks about discipleship more than anybody else. And so I said, well, I guess the best thing to do is to open up the concordance, the thing that has all the words from the Bible and where you can find them. And then just look at every time the word disciple is used in John, all 72 times. So I found, I found John eight 31, where Jesus says to the Jews who had believed in him, there's the people who already believed in him. He says, if you remain in my word, you are truly my disciples. I said, Oh, so first you have to believe, then you have to remain. And that makes a true disciple. Then I just went back through the Gospel and found all the times where believe and remain and discipleship are used kind of in some way together by John to bring out what it means to be a disciple. Well, I found really surprising. It was kind of an epiphany for me when you broke open the, was it the Greek word for believe the CEO? Thank you for pronouncing it for me. Say it one more time. Will you, father? It's yellow because it has another meaning as well that will pop for us. I think, yeah, it's the same word ingredient for believe and for trust. The reason I think that's so important is because when you think about those church approved apparitions of our Lord, or really there are only a few of them, but almost in every instance, he's imploring us to trust him, you know, in the sacred heart, in the revelation to St. Faustina, the message he has is trust me. And when so you connect those two words, believe, trust, they are more than married, aren't they? Yeah. It seems to me that in English, when we say believe, we mean like something we do with our minds. And when we say trust, we mean something that we do with our hearts, more or less. But when Jesus says, believe, when he tells us to believe, or when he tells us to trust, I think it means both. I think it's an integrated and I know I know that it's an integrated expression that Jesus invites us into to believe in our heads, yes, and to trust in our hearts. And those things need to be has to be together. This is just some of what is containing your book, Remaining with Jesus, Discipleship in the Gospel of John. I want to say it over and over again, because this book, we're going to dive more into it, but it's just so perfect for the study of the Gospel of John. I really is. I mean, even the layout that you have, as far as the encouragement of times of reflection, even as opportunities to have group study. And when we talk about group study, the family is still a group. I mean, this is good for families to get together and to break open. And I think you could probably do this just about any age, couldn't you? Just about. Yeah, I think so. For that, I just again, I want to encourage folks to to check out Remaining with Jesus Discipleship in the Gospel of John, because in it, you also talk about the dynamics of discipleship and you point out four very important signposts, I think, on this journey. And it could be a little bit more. I mean, each has so much contained in it. But there are four basic elements, aren't there? Yeah. So we see at the very beginning of the Gospel, John the Baptist, he paints out that Jesus is there, he says, he says, Behold, the Lamb of God. And notice that that actually happens twice. I found that that a little interesting that he says it one day. Behold, the Lamb of God and kind of nobody does anything. Then the next day, Jesus passes by again and he says, Behold, the Lamb of God. And it's at that point that Andrew and John said, oh, well, we we we need to go follow. So there's a most of the time there's a witness, somebody somebody has got to tell us about Jesus, and then after somebody tells us about Jesus, like John the Baptist told Andrew and John, like Philip went and told Nathaniel just a couple of verses later at the beginning in John chapter one, somebody tells us about Jesus and then we go and we meet Jesus for ourselves. And when we encounter Jesus for ourselves, we begin to we begin to believe in him. I believe in those two ways that we talked about earlier to believe in the intellect and to trust in the heart. But believing, believing isn't enough because believing has to, or rather relationships need time and relationships need to persevere. And almost always on this side of heaven, right in this valley of tears in which we live, almost always there are challenges and tests and trials to do, do I really trust, like how deeply do I trust? And we have to remain with Jesus in those trials. And oftentimes remaining looks like standing there and not going anywhere like John and Mary and Mary Magdalene and the other holy women at the further cross. And just being there and not moving in the midst of, in the midst of the trial and the suffering. And when we are remaining with Jesus, like the branch that remains on the vine, then we bear fruit and that fruit looks like practically loving people. We build up the church. We, in other words, we encourage people in the community by our prayer, by our mortifications, by our practical efforts. And it becomes a cycle because the best way, the biggest way, the most important way that we love people who are outside of the church is we witnessed to them about Jesus. We tell them, Hey, behold the lamb of God. Hey, this is what Jesus did in my life. This is what we do. So the witness moves us to meet Jesus, where we believe, believing in him. We begin to remain with him by believing through time, especially through struggles, trials, tests, difficulties. And then that remaining bears fruit in practical love. Yeah, you hear so often. I am the vine. You're the branches remain in me. That's, I can recall in the words of a little Carmelite who became a Saint, St. Elizabeth of the Trinity. That's one of the first things she implores in her great retreats that she offers us is to remember, remain in me. And I think sometimes that's very difficult to stay in that place because of those types of trials. If you're not anchored again in that belief, that trust, and that can only grow in a relationship within an encounter with Christ, can it? Yes, exactly. So Father, when you were exploring this in the gospel of John, it hits me that, as you said in the beginning, Andrew and Philip heard it first, but they didn't respond immediately.

"So, you know, some of these patients come in looking at you like you're crazy but some come in and they might have known about previous treatments that didn't work. So how do you have that conversation with your patients that this is going to work? We, as optometrists and I care professional know about to try general America not everybody does. So if we can get on that if you don't mind. Yeah, I think you know a lot, Marion jump in as well. But, you know, one of the most important pieces of data out there that we often talk about came out of doctor Steve fluke Felder's lab and they anesthetized one side of the nasal cavity and then measured tier production. And in fact, if you anesthetize the nasal cavity, 40% less tier production on that side of the face. And so we know that the nasal cavity is responsible for just normal basal tear production. And we all have probably experienced it if we have a cold or sinusitis and we're not breathing through our nose. And we go to sleep at night. We wake up the next morning. Our eyes are dry and crusty. And it's because we're not getting that air flow across nasal cavity. So when we usually talk to patients about is, there are a number of ways to stimulate tier production, obviously you've experienced one way, which is you get an eyelash in your eye and you start to tear or you get some dust in your eye. But also if you get something into your nose that simulates that trigeminal nerve or nowadays, we can just say remember when you got your cobweb test and you jam that Q tip up there. Probably cause you to hear and sneeze amongst other things. But I think really talking to the patient that there's these two driving forces, there's an ocular driving force for tier production, and there's a nasal driving force. And we're leveraging that one because no matter how damaged drop goes surfaces in most patients that nasal cavity is still able to drive to your production. And doctor max I don't know if you want to add anything. Well, so just all a little bit of my thunder because we all have COVID tests. If you haven't had a COVID test, you're living under a rock. And that makes my eyes water. So, yes, we know from fluke filters work that it's actually 34% of the basal terraform comes from breathing through your nose. But the other thing is, when you have dry eyes and we know because we've dealt with these patients, and we see how much they're suffering. However every blink hurts, the last thing they want to do is put something in their eye that's going to stay. A bird. No matter when your eyes are that dry, you can put preservative free tears in and patients relate to us that they burn that they stay. They're not comfortable. So this is, I think, a wonderful alternative. One, you don't have to aim, which is so hard for so many of our patients. Two. It's hard for me. I'll let you guys in on a little secret. I don't know, there are no. You can give me a card that say happy holidays. Well, I was getting at was, you know, I'll let you know the secret. I don't like anything in my eyes. So if you give me an alternate alternative, I'm gonna run with that by all means. So I can definitely understand that. Well, and the other thing is, when we put things in our eyes, they are washing

"Doctor lazare? Hey, oh my gosh, thank you. You're so sweet. I'm good. How are you? I am doing fantastic. And I don't know about you doctor Lazar, but around this time of the year, I am bombarded by something that really plagues my office on a day today basis, and that's dry eye. I mean, the weather is changing. People are traveling. They're in the molds where it's dry or they're working overtime. So they always come into my office complaining about dry eyes. Please tell me you're experiencing the same thing. Oh, absolutely. And you know what? I have what I'm noticing have been practicing. I start to, I'm smarter now, okay? It's like live and learn. So I start treating my dry I patients in August. I bring them in and I start prepping them for this season. So yes, this is the season and often you'll have patients like, oh, my eyes are not dry. They're watering. Yes. So we got to treat that. Yeah. So absolutely. Yeah, well, I'm super excited today because we have two colleagues that are really going to talk about dry eye, but of course before we jump into that, let's really get to know who's hanging out with us today. Are you down for that dessert? Yes. So much. Well, today we are very excited to partner with oyster point. And we have two stars here. We have Jeffrey now who's going to give us his background and also we have doctor Marian maxi. How are you doing today? Doing great, Terrell. You're doing great. Awesome. Well, Jeffrey, I know you hold a big title over there, man, but ladies first. So we're gonna have to take it to doctor Baxter. A little background about who she is, where she's from. And how did you get into this lovely professional as I care if you don't mind sharing with us? Well, first of all, thanks for having me, Darrell. I've been in eye care for over 30 years. I'm an ophthalmologist and up until a year ago, I was a practicing ophthalmologist, just like all of you. Day in day out, seeing those dry eye patients. And when the COVID epidemic hit, I am one of those physicians that jump ship. I was offered a great opportunity by Jeff to join oyster point as chief medical officer. And so I thought this was my opportunity to not just help the patients in my chair, but all the dry eye patients out there. All the patients with front of the eye disease. And as a cornea, fellowship trained surgeon, I thought. This is my opportunity. So I dove head first into the world of pharma, and I haven't looked back for one second. So I've been I've always your point for a year and had the privilege to work with Jeff and our incredible team as we've brought Terra to the market. FDA approved to help our dry eye patients. Awesome. I love it. And you know, that's the beautiful thing about I care. There is so much that you can do. It's not about just sitting in that exam lane, refracting, doing medical. You can do so much more outside of that exam. And that's one reason why I truly love this profession. Jeff, tell us a little bit about yourself, man. A little bit about your background, you know, how you got into eye care and let's just build this story up there. Yeah, sure. Well, thanks for having us on and much like Mary and I've actually ironically been in eye care for a long time. I'm probably the only CEO in the eye care space that also started out his career as a tech in a multi specialty practice. And sort of work my way up as a retinal photographer went off the college and worked my way through college by harvesting corneas at the I bank. So I've been in ophthalmology my entire career and then as I transitioned over thinking I was going to go into medicine and I was in medical school, thought I was going to be an eye care and then ultimately made the decision to move over into the industry side of the business and have been involved in ophthalmology for 20 years and clinical development of both drugs and devices. So I spent my entire career somehow touching eye care. Yeah, I think so, man. You've done it all. Both of you have done it all. So, you know, you guys have it. Let me throw my no problem out there. I've been an industry for about 21 years. How about you, doctor lazare? Oh, well, I graduated in 2015. Okay. All right. Well, I was a technician too before I went to Tommy school and I so glasses. So I've really been all into this from the bottom up. But I love the profession for sure. So, you know, it's no doubt about it that, you know, we're here to really talk about turbio. But before we jump into that oyster point, what does oyster point all about? We see that name popping up all over the place, but a lot of my colleagues, a lot of my fellow optometrists and I care professionals out there may not know what this brand is about and what that story is about.

"In my pregnancy with my son who is now twenty. One months i think yeah. I was pregnant with him. You had noticed you starting to speak more about metron lessons on. I remember my as kind of picking up because as you mentioned earlier i've been following your work for many many many years and i- nari that was such a huge pot as to what led me to even want to try to become a model n. Sorry when i started hearing you talk about basin that would bay a program. It was one of those moments where i didn't really understand what it was but everything inside of me was like you just have two days. He have to do this. And i could just feel that it was going to be incredibly life changing for me. And that's exactly what the outcome has been. Yeah so it was just that. Full body intuitive hunch and giving myself permission to fully that i just wanted to point out that every other woman in the program in the training memorizing at the time was already a mother with babies and toddlers in school age children ash was the only one who was in the training as a first time pregnant mom and to witness the transformation immu- ash during that program to see how the concepts of metron cents and the understanding of the identity of motherhood and what we tell ourselves that needs to look like and who we need to be to say that almost in real time with you as you prepared to give birth for the first time was one of the greatest on his not only for me but for everyone in that training it was like without sounding crass beautiful. It was like you around guinea pig. We could see how it was going to change the way you felt about motherhood before you even gave birth and that's exactly exactly what it did is continuing to reform me in regards to apple's try mista. I could not prepare myself. For the fact that i would end up with price nato anxiety and my husband also as well and so i kind of with completely taken aback. The thing that held me three that and helped me to basauri climbed to myself and ray chocolate support. Probably a look. Cerna than i may have without this knowledge of matrouh sense was that it was knowing that would was and what it meant. Semaine end it was. It was really truly my anchor. Three that really doc kiryat. Sorry i'm forever grateful to yuri and for this age. Because that's when i truly say it's been life changing. Let that right. That's exactly why shared your story many times ash without naming you until this moment when people ask me in interviews a went on when i used to be able to hold events before covered about what do you think is the possibility to share metress cents with pregnant women. What do you think could happen can way reduce the number of postnatal depression personnel anxiety etc. And my answer has always been. We don't know yet. We says a very new area and we need a lot more research. But i can tell you one story and that is of this beautiful mama. This beautiful pregnant mala her time in and learned all of this with us. Yes motherhood still cracked here. I it's still brought her to her knees because in a way heads what it's meant to do in a way that zapata the awakening and the process but instead of turning that cracking into self judgment into silence into more suffering. She was able to make herself in that and reach out for what she needed. She didn't judge what she was feeling. She understood this was part of the process. And i think as you said this is the gift of metron percents. Can it make the into motherhood softer. Yes i do think it can. Will it stop all of the struggles. We have of course not but what it does is it stops us from tanning that suffering struggles into something. We're doing wrong ash at sorry. I thank you so much. Sorry beautiful too. He articulated in that way. Because that's exactly what it has done and continues to do for me. You know as i shed. My thing is about doing the wrong thing. Not getting it right and this is just really helped me on a very date level to really just tight so much pressure off of myself to be pefect and to get everything right. If i've done a lot of in a work over the scenery ami in the hia let mature sisters and the memorizing program has been the thing. Let the thing for me. That is getting very emotional.

"The <hes> interconnectedness a positive. Well first and foremost nobody's forcing anybody to be on facebook or twitter. I don't have a twitter account. I only have My public human progress account where we are obviously determined to be true to fact and so you know we don't push lies. But i don't have the personal twitter account where i could overreact to assist tweet from somebody and called them the word or whatever and i've been i've been facebook speaking about the word i've been facebook free since two thousand twelve and i've been very happy to be so so. Nobody's forcing anybody to participate in these four. It is true that facebook and twitter have lowered the tone of the public discourse. I just read a johnson roaches book the constitution knowledge where it makes it very persuasive case that's Social media have contributed to deterioration of journalistic standards and so forth. I accept that. Although i think that's just an on place also role that our education system had in producing people who are working for the new york times and and and many other newspapers who are willing to lie for their calls in other words. It's not just that the public sphere has become more open to idiots but also that we are producing generally without any journalistic standards who are willing to lie. So that's another problem but but ultimately you know. Let let me give you an analogy. When i started working on a computer rising my i is a university. I was working on netscape. Nobody remembers netscape. Now because because it got blown out of the water by by microsoft and that's who is to say that facebook and twitter are here to stay forever who is to say that these platforms are going to be disturbing a public equanimity for decades to come. Who knows maybe something better will come along and it biology cinemas rights than information itself will be blockchain's in a way that will be able to see the origin of every piece of news and every fact and see aware it has originated from which is a concept behind bitcoin. And we'll be able to see who the person was. And maybe they will have some sort of a blockchain score which will evaluate them on the veracity of their segments. So that's one thing that could happen and also. I don't think that the future is about nagel megalopolis. I don't think that the future is about ever increasing massive states. I think that's governments are playing catch-up waste with with the with technology and very bad at at at it. And i think that future will be much more decentralized. I think that there will be a free cities where people who are fed up with surveillance. <hes> we'll be able to go to And little lives without surveillance and and things like that you know. Talent will be will be poached by companies and countries from from places where the government regulation oversight becomes too onerous. God knows we have benefited tremendously from all those a smart people who who have fled to the chinese authoritarian state and decide to work here. I'm in yes some of them. Turn out to be spies. Many of them didn't so so future is decentralized future is free i think the future the free single because the governments will not be able to to to quash technological progress blockchain. Bitcoin variety of different ways in which smart people around the world are working to get around This is this this looming threat from our own gunman's very very nice way. I think to close out the show. Marian thank you that's very good words completely Agree with that very very good thoughts. Listen yep speaking of twitter. I know you're at human progress.

"Okay so when bloomberg says food prices have increased by twenty percents since nineteen sixty one and that it's true but it's moronic way of looking at it because you because you have not accounted for the fact that wages have increased by two hundred percents and therefore people are much richer and are able to digest quote unquote forgive the pun the increases in time prices of food. I mean it's it's as simple as that and but but journalists never do this. They never put things into context. And that's part of the reason. Why so many people feel crappy about their own lives is because because they have nothing to compare it to they think oh my god food prices are up. Yes but have you seen your paycheck. What happened to the paycheck. If it's higher than then you are still ahead. I want to shift a little bit out of the data and and ask a more general question so in early great democracy we. They had the concept of the agora rate. Which is the town square. But it was also the public meeting place where ideas could be proposed and defended and debated. at least. That's how you know it gets pr representative in the history books and so you know. The modern public square is arguably social media and everyone has voice and nothing gets intelligently debated and it represents you know seeming like devolution and discourse and it's not to say that there isn't sort of you know san harris talks about the intellectual dark web which is where these edey conversations more genteel conversations are occurring. I think his podcast. A good example of that. But just generally writ large what we see on social media is a lot of like pointing and identity politics and vitriol and so is that is that actually the case is is the mesh of the internet and the access every conversation and every person on the globe between each other. Is that bad for the kind of like evolution of the species or is that just the boogeyman and in fact..

I mean i wanted to say that the first couple of years we definitely made less but we knew if we kept at it that it would come. We hope that it would come.

So we're we renamed it rebranded and stuff and it's called now. Just deacon live video podcasts and it's just simpler. It's just easier when you say it. Everyone understands exactly what it is The initial original title was called under the tent. And the reason why we under the tent. I don't want to say it's kind of like a circus thing in but that's kind of like ninety s shock jock radio and stuff so we just call it now. We're just gonna call it the video video podcast which nothing's changed just the way we address it so for every podcast that we we also have a matching video. that goes in tandem. So you can listen to the audio on your iheart app or wherever you listen to podcasts. And also you go to our prophet radio r. o. p. h. e. t. radio click on nikolai. And you can see the video. And we have several cameras here in the studio and they rotate around and you could see the computer monitor on stories and stuff that we're talking in real time and you could see me throw my hands around like wild fish and all the stuff that goes on here in the studio which is fun you know. Sometimes you want to put a face to a name or name to a face and my emotions and my jazz fingers and stuff is quite a seat site. The season alright. So little update on everything here at the household at the french. Now we call this place to french-speaking given things name is a friend so we have twenty two some acres. It's part farm part ranch so half of the property is is We're we're setting our fields getting ready for corn getting ready for all the stuff that we getting ready to plant offspring vegetables and stuff and then we have of course horses and chickens we have livestock and everything on the other side of the property. So it's a fulltime job here now. I told you last week about chip drop so we had forty yards. Cubic yards of mulch dumped on our driveway on the landing slab out there and my wife and i last weekend i got on the tractor and got a big old kubota tractor and from bucket on it and picked up. You know a load. Scoot up put in the flowerbeds scooped up when all the way around the whole entire property still need another forty yards but we did like up by the house and stuff so my wife out there. Both of us both getting old. Believe me You know sedentary lives sitting behind a desk and sitting behind a computer all day long. Does that to you. So she's i. Wanna i wanna be physical. I want to get in then. And she did. She did she gave it her best. College tries what they say and she spread twenty yards of mulch. I was dumping it in places. Next day came back and i finished twenty yards but i felt it like the next day those muscles you like going. Why is my oh that's right. I opened a bottle of pepsi the other day and boys my arm. Just something as stupid as that. Why are my legs stiff. Because i went up and down the stairs more than four times today. My legs are a little stiff that cemetery life that you get used to with the whole pandemic and everything now. I see a lot of people out there. Getting around and moving around and and great. I love seeing pictures. I love seeing you guys out there. And and enjoying the nice weather we've been having out the seasons. Change this gentleman speaking being old. This gentleman right here is calling it quits. He's fifty three years old and god. That alone makes me feel old. Because i remember as a little kid and i say a little kid a teenager looking up to this guy. You can't say this without putting his name in it as well and that's tony hawk. Hawk is what they consider the michael jordan of skateboarding. He is put skateboarding in the mainstream and is larger than the sport. Itself in the heyday. If you're a kid in the early nineties nineties early two thousands. You probably play tony. Hawkes pro skateboarder on the video games. I've never played it well. Tony hawk has now fifty two years old now and like any person that age right there. Probably not in the best physical peak. I'm several years removed from tony hawk. And i'm not in that physical shape. It seems that tony hawk has acknowledged that the end is getting near and it's time to hang up his board for good at least the trick performing capacity so he's not gonna be writing half pipe she's not can be doing all the the big stunts and stuff because i'm sure he he doesn't recover now. If you were to skateboard every day from eighteen to fifty two you would think you'd be in good shape. It's kinda like maybe a boxer or wrestler you get beaten up impounded on dumped in flipped in fallen scarred and scrape after a while. You're it takes a beating on your body. It takes a toll on your body and tony hawk. If he's a fifty two year old man in a feet of itself is now hanging up his skateboard for the very last time. Now this trick right here. It's co he did the last trick he did his last trick trick. That could almost feasibly not be thinkable almost imaginable. It's an ali five forty so if you're watching us here on the deacon live video podcast here is the original one. He did in nineteen eighty. Nine let's see if this'll video so you guys can see in switch screens here so we can all be friends so here. He is doing the five forty ali on a half pipe. And what if i forty. Ali is is basically. He goes one and a half times around in the air on his board without his hands. Touching it or anything. It's it's amazing to see just that and this is in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine we boot and then right back down now. That was him in one thousand nine hundred nine and to round out his whole career of work. This was the last trick. He did the same five forty at age. Fifty two now. he's got landed slough off ramp. These are all the process of him trying to land the last trick. Fifty two as shoots aboard off. The ramp design is down on his knees. Yeah i never had much finality to anything but definitely be made it talking and he makes it look so easy. He floats up and down that thing. Thanks for hanging in there with me. You gotta tony. Thanks tony for all the memories and stuff. Great i mean. He wraps up his his whole entire life career on doing that. And it's amazing that that he could do and lasts that long of there's not a whole lot of skateboarders out there he could have done it in a little bit more show if you want to eat some money out of their. Believe me if you wanted to make some money out there. He could've done a whole. This is my last performance. You know how many times kissed gone away. Hey farewell tour again. How many times have rock rollers and nut. Tony hawk bows out grace so there. You have it all right. We'll come back a tv. Host gets attacked by naked woman. Yeah oh yeah.

Poly Styrene Documentary
"Today. Polystyrene i m cliche is directed by both her daughter. Celeste bell and documentary maker pulsing charting the rise of marian elliott as she was born. She saw yellow pages ad became polystyrene and formed punk band x ray specs as we know in this foam. Celeste goes through her mother's archive and visits. The places of hutch halted. So let's listen to the trader to get a feel for it. Some people think little go should have. But i think my mother was punk rock icon. People have asked me if she was a good mom. It's hard to know what to say your rebel. Today's society paulie had our own ideas. Student full fully trends. She was a woman of color in. Dc full of white middle class. men was singing. polly was singing about. I fell in love with her. I fell in. The news actually started singing. Because right we will dive right in nora snaps point. He was a big personality but as we see her life was extremely complicated on. This is as much. Her daughter's journey as police starring life story. Was that a good way in. I think definitely I think by this point. We also board like punk defecation. This point know the way. The bbc fool punk document generation. That watches him in the in the same way. That like my dad and grandad generation. What war documentaries old thing again and again and I think it's focus the that it's kind of deified in such a like i wasn't like incredible and radical umbro which it was in some ways but also rian just reinforced the status quo in other ways. Like the thing. I think is really great why i feel like the rohbock of this narrative restarted with like the vowel between book which From a couple of years ago when she you know really gets to the kind of watson order of it in a way that is much more punk than saying like. Oh we great you know like sex pistols type branding and i thought that this documentary was like a really peaceful continuation overseas. Not done by polystyrene by her daughter. And i think it's testament polystyrene like complexity and also to her sensitivity. But then i'll say for her callousness towards adulterer as well. I think it makes were much more well rounded portray of somebody and also no. It doesn't just a pain releasing on her. You know she has her own issues but it looks at how they're exacerbated by the society around like a mixed race woman in london at that time in the punk scene. There's a bit wet don. Let says that she goes and shaves her head while she's a party jordan lydon's house and when winter comes back down they just love her releasing. That seem horrendous. In retrospect i'm sure we're just kind of par for the course in in the seventy s and the other thing i was gonna say i think is important is she wasn't postponed. She was punk like she's really part of the the formative dna not very easily gets forgotten. Like when i was a teenager Bought three for twelve pounds. Buzzcocks clash kind of burundi's wound go from and see a whatever it was but it took a lot longer. It's come across x ray specs and to hear them kind of debt day fight in the way that they deserve She had a rough up. Brixton upbringing. shoes booted at school. Punk rock was a place for outsiders is the cliche but actually you see that. It's inevitable that she is going to get drawn to something that's so creative but also that she can break whatever more that she feels that she has been put into yet absolutely I think one thing that's really striking by the way that she Shared her images. While is the like. Obviously i don't want a undress will. The sex pistols did two like bridge society but fundamentally that kind of just like a boy band put together by iron. Witten really edgy branding. And that whole thing is is about dog individualism. When really it was really nothing the saw. And i think that you know. Even the police die polystyrene style for rewards more individual. She recognized herself as a cliche. And she played with the idea of like branding and identity in a way that i find much more interesting than just like sticking a safety pin on it And i think we have to use it. Today were authenticity. It comes from a very real place whether the sex pistols Taped on summertimes travis. The problems with poly seem to stem from x ray specs residency. Cbgb's in new york when they went over us punks hauled coal. There were a lot more into drugs. And i think that london it seems to say. Was this the breaking point for the band. Is this the kind of crux in the film. I think so. I mean i mean. That's the argument fuel. Makes the About what happened to the u k Members of the dolls came over an introduced heroin to the to the uk seen quite quite a heavy way otten Concur with everything that lord said about film. I think The framing the fact that it has selected celeste stories. Her as she's dealing with navas legacy in some respects her mother had had semi other people's expectations about what she should be being Star as in and being mixed race being hauled somali in britain and she's just so in the clips that they use the archive clips which from most of them from a a great arena documentary from nineteen seventy-nine he was she's just so alive him sparking intelligence on which me a very funny and in most What she's doing. I think you know how easy it is to get coal topping to the move Nexus these achieved up by the film. I descend Points about the breakdown. the failure in a way to work out. How will she is. She's diagnosed with schizophrenia. Kind of putting for bit. has serious by disorder Move into harry christmas On also in places you alluded to neglect which she treats celeste points during the spirit journey and was pursuing a common all and happened. How different thoughts regarding way with the male and female office Think about lockdown about. How much care women having to take on board and also agree with. I think that when another book that i would put in the frame is what is alvin. Is is kathy. Adams was drafted memoir of juden in other key. Figure the kind prison to look look upon pumpkin kind of liberating. It wasn't how you think about kind of male violence. Where is actually to the nearly point it was it was quite at transgressive sexually A lot of the gay pubs and clubs were up with the next to solve it. I'm so i can imagine that. The film doesn't does kind of raise interesting questions. As well as celeste father is interviewed in it on one of us and absent biggest because he died. regional manager. And pau falcons stewart. Now again. Severi seventeen seventy six. He was quite a bit older than when they get and how much care and they seem to hide it to a certain extent as well a friends didn't really know whether they were going out with each other or not. We just didn't look particularly cool Strangely enough this film from that era with hangs connor in it could breaking gloss than nyein and strangely seems to be almost so the police story in way which becomes this incredible figure And has sta machiavellian manage aaron and has this breakdown and so on so until daniels place. This full manager boyfriend Is i think it's really five documentary. Actually i think you mentioned he was a guest. Shot means the fact that one of zoe's earlier books whose how's your dad's some which is a an account to of stars children's. She's absolutely perfect for collaborator. On this end coming book as other as good as andrew. Did you like this a did. I really liked it because as as long as it's very fresh indifference it's a dream like quality. This is very much not your friday night documentary. Which begins with the stock footage of the miners. Strike rubbish piling in the winter of discontent. Yeah i've always about acronyms because hatches and didn't stop not your kind of off the pex tickets sold. It's it is a personal journey. It's quite slow and quite like i say quite dreamlike and which i found very refreshing change from the usual stakeouts poke documentary. I remember when i was a kid. I thought i thought police really disturbing because i lived in a very white suburban middle of nowhere type place and you just seems so odd and the fact that she but were shut brace on top of the pops and i now say that that is really good thing that it should be disturbed a little. You not white kids in places where i lived in in middle. middle class. spices. To encounter is person who didn't look like a boss didn't like pasta but was absolutely transfixed thing

How different is dealing with this pfizer. Vaccine from pooping call for measles australia. One of the major things which is different is one. This is an ultra. Low temperature require the cold chain requirements at different and in addition we have to use multi. Does files and in australia. Multi smiles have not been used much at all and this is a very very precious product and so we want to make sure that we maximise the number of doses that we can get out of a multi file so for the fis vaccine. That is that we aim to take out six doses out of fat multi file which is a challenge because we constantly do not have what a cold low dead space needles overloaded space syringes. That are family style absolutely great and they are able to reliably get sixty six out of multidex files. Solo did space. Needle is nato where. There's not a bit of a minimum amount of vaccine. That's left in it after it's been completely delib is correct correct and so we want to make sure with. Everybody gets exactly the dose that they need. And if you don't have a low dead space being you have vaccine that is lifting the end. The person does not get the full amount or you cannot get the full dose of the vaccine pulled out of the multi vile and you've got to go to w. correct so. This is a complex process. So i'll pharmacy staff. They spent one week specifically training for this to make sure that they abide by be cold chain requirements which has significant in addition to make sure that they use the proper aseptic technique. So that they don't have any contamination of vile that occurs and then they practiced and practiced and practiced to make sure with dummy vials to make sure that they could get the appropriate number of doses.

The President's picture
"Now back on election night in two thousand eight. I was sitting on the couch watching the news. My career in photojournalism at morphed into a career shooting weddings. Not because. I really wanted that because it paid money. Such is life and so there. I was sitting on that couch. Not working the most historical election night of my life. The crowd is reaching a million in grant park. The anchor said in washington. Tens of thousands of people are gathered at the white house. Some tv journalist explained breathlessly. And i couldn't take it anymore. I looked at the clock. It was eleven. I gotta go. I said to man where she replied. No i gotta go make a picture of something and so a jumped into my car and sped down a sleepy military road. And then i loved myself. Where would i find a parking spot near the white house. Isn't it funny. How logistics can be such a buzzkill aloft. Again you idiot. Forget the white house. Go to the lincoln. Martin luther king marian anderson. I have a dream. I figured there'd be thousands of people just like the white house was a ton of the twenty. Six as i walked up at tv crew was walking away. Nothing to see here. My fellow agenda said to me. Helpfully barack obama's speech from bronco was coming through the radio. My fellow citizens. I stand here today humbled by the task before us. Grateful for the trust. You've bestowed mind-mindful of the sacrifices borne by our ancestors. I felt lanka wounded into a candid camera prank twenty-six very quiet people who gathered around a single transistor radio in the steady drizzle. Not even a mile from where tens of thousands of people were screaming. Their heads off. It was around midnight and was very dark in the rain was fogging things up on my camera. But i'm made some pictures because that's what we journalists do the next morning at six. Am i emailed gone you at the new york times. I think. I wrote something like election night. Lincoln memorial twenty six people in rain in the subject filled to get his attention. Five minutes later. My phone rang. i chuckled. The photo ran the size of a stamp on the op-ed page of the times. The next day better than nothing. I thought then some woman named connie email me i say some woman comically because i didn't know her at the time she has since become a dear friend but back in two thousand and eight two days. After the election of barack obama. She was just columnist. I didn't know saying she wanted to write a story about my picture and she was on deadline so i called her back and some guy named sherritt answered the phone detecting trend here. Connie really needs to talk to you but she's just getting out show. Just hang on a few moments. She'll be here so i talked to share it for five minutes chatting about the election and everything and having no idea i was talking to a united states senator email. My sister woman named connie schultz interview today connie schultz. I love her. She's on msnbc all the time you dingo and connie wrote beautiful column. Everyone was excited for me. The grainy photo of the twenty-six folks in the dark and the rain that i shot for no publication in particular was suddenly gaining traction. My neighbor republican joe crowley loved it. He asked me if he could give some to his colleagues. I made copies. Joe gave them to members of the congressional black caucus he also brought one to the white house event and gave it to the president and that photo got framed and hung outside the president's study for eight years and that's where this story should end except that in two thousand sixteen after donald trump was elected. The new president-elect was invited for white house to by president. Obama and my old friend pete souza took a photo of that man. Sizing up the president's study. Will you see in. The photo is his orange hair as he pokes his head in and his hands on the wall right next to my framed photo. Pete's picture is awesome and that's where this story ends except for today because i've been getting e mail after e mail from people who've gotten their hands on president obama's memoir and in his memoir. He says that my photograph the slightly boring one of twenty six people standing in the rain is his favorite photo from his election night. His what president obama rights. But i worry the my memories of that night night so much else has happened these past twelve years a shady by the images that i've seen the footage of our family walking across the stage the photographs the crowds and lights and magnificent backdrops as beautiful as they are. They don't always match the lived experience in fact my favorite photograph from that nice isn't a drum park toll rather it's the one i received later as a gift. The photograph the lincoln memorial taken. As i was giving my speech. It shows a small gathering of people on the stairs that's is obscured by the dot is behind them. The giant figure shining brightly. Here face craggy is is slightly downcast. They're listening to the radio. I am told quietly contemplating who we are as people. And the ark of this thing. We call
"marian" Discussed on Nighttime Conversations With Steve and Freja
"Well. I would say that. It's not always a choice. Like i don't think it's always a choice when people get triggered but i do think that even recognizing that there's something that you can do can give you more choices so it's a matter of usually Approaching it from a resource state. Like figuring out what you're going to do before you get triggered when you get triggered having a plan of what you can do so that you have more choices in that moment. Okay thanks a lot of sense and do you think that. There's a difference between general anxiety. Let's say 'cause here's a hot topic it's on every it's on the tip of everybody's tongue with cove in the world at large like there's a lot of unrest and i believe that that sort of constant low level or high level fear is contributing to people's generalized anxiety. So yeah absolutely kit at night. It's a it's a mental burden if if you're constantly trying to figure out how to negotiate the basics of life and stay safe and also kind of mediate your relationships with other people and what they think round all this whatever that is. I don't even know but i know that even there's a lot of political polarization going on in that is stressful so Absolutely i think depending is contributing to stress so in this type of stressful world. How does a person like a regular person maintain their sanity instead of being drawn into having anxiety all the time. I think it's important to focus on what you can control. And i'm saying this is You know. I felt like i had to go through this myself. When the pandemic hit it felt like there were things that were not in my control and there still are a lot of things that are not in my control but you know i can also see that some of that is perception like even before the pandemic cabins. Any number of things. That could have happened. That were out of my control. I could have died in a car accident. I could have had been had. My house hit by a meteor not to catastrophe. But you know this is isn't interesting circumstance that our generation hasn't experienced in using that broadly a don't mean like generations. I mean like the people. I've on this planet right now. Most of us of night experienced something quite like this but It's an illusion that we can control. Things are happening outside of us. Sue is important like when you start to feel like anxiety about things that are beyond your control. It's important to bring your attention back to that which you can control and something really freaking basic. That you can go to is your breath. I was just gonna ask you for. I was going to ask you for two things. Actually one was what something that we can do in the moment right now i'm starting. I'm just feeling stressed anxious. It's generalized anxiety versus in the moment reacting to something and having a panic attack What can i do throughout the day to feel better if i have a lot of anxiety. Generalized anxiety A really easy thing to do that. I like to teach is to just cross your hands across your chest. Do that now with your right hand. Go tap tap and with your left hand. Go tap tap in the into rhythm leagues Tap tap tap tap tap a kind of like a heartbeat..
"marian" Discussed on Nighttime Conversations With Steve and Freja
"Happy safe place. This is something you're gonna wanna check out the happy safe place. Explorers resource states through a kaleidoscope perspectives for the purpose of promoting emotional resilience in plain. Speak with this means. Is it gives you tools to feel better. And he'll your crap marian. I'm so happy you're here with me and subject. I wanted to talk to you about. Because i know that you work with anxiety professionally. Yes i love working with anxiety. One of my favorite things. Yeah that's coming up like crazy everywhere lately. I think most of the people that i've talked to have either. They will say that. Oh i have anxiety it's flaring up or they'll say my kids have or my wife has at her and i've seen all these different posts on facebook. I wanted to ask you as a professional who works with it. What do you think is one of the most important things to understand about anxiety for people who are going through it or experiencing it. Well is just an experience in the body and i think sometimes even just labeling et sometimes like i'll even start by asking someone to just notice it as a sensation cause a sensation is open to interpretation. It could even be something like excitement. You know excitement and anxiety fill similar if not the same in the body and and once you can just kind of this sensation in the body. There's so many ways that you can go with that. I mean. I'm sure you also know this. You're also someone who works with this. Did you want to get into techniques. Yes i will want to get into techniques. I was listening to very intently. Which is why. I went silent for a moment. I really liked what you said about anxiety being very similar to other things like excitement a quote that i heard a long time ago it was. Fear is just excitement filtered through a different lens. I really liked it and the it makes sense because it similar chemicals in your body and it's simply an interpretation of what those chemicals mean raise. Yeah yeah and it's it's not even really to never wanna invalidate. Somebody's experience of whether having you know. It's not not so much from that perspective it's more just Kind of a pattern of creating a little bit of distance between you. And what you're experiencing. So i wanna ask you. Why is it important that people actually do like take measures to manage their anxiety. I'm using the term manage. It could mean get rid of but Why is it important to deal with instead of just leaving are pushing aside or ignoring because it gives you more choices in. You can respond to life.
Johnny Depp Allegedly "Romantic" With Angelina Jolie, and Gwyneth Paltrow talks about Public Scrutiny
"I daily please. Welcome scott tweeted back to the show so much for joining us come for the christmas trees decorations. Everything christmas tree competition between justin. And i later in the show's to stick around for that. Okay it's a new way to light up your tree all right up. First today. the hollywood reporter reports that johnny depp dated angelina jolie cure nightly an marion cotillard. And all the details are about to go public sued. Johnny's going back to court With the defamation case against his ex wife amber heard it's based on an essay she wrote about abuse for the washington post back in two thousand eighteen. Now according to the hollywood reporter johnny will have to turn over all responsive communications with his alleged romantic partners in angelina. Marian and kiera have all been named in court. Documents now marian. Akira have already there on this. They told us they were never romantically involved with johnny. And we have not heard back yet from angelina so interesting. It's a little more of this. He said she said drama Do you think the trial will be even more damaging or possibly embarrassing for johnny than the british trial was. It's all so ridiculous. This man is doing this based on something that came out and twenty eighteen with everything going on in two thousand twenty and in the world. No one even remembers that johnny depp amber heard all of these issues anyway. what. I think we're more they issues. I mean in the bay. I mean he kept on saying allegedly in the bank. Yes that's what you would remember more. And i and johnny feels. He needs to clear his name and he has filed the. He's already put this much money into it. I see him wanting to see this through the time that he did this. He was hot on it. But by the time you actually go to trial and all this davits it does feel like wow. Why are they still doing this. But also twenty twenty probably delayed a lot of things you know. It delayed a lot of stuff. And everybody's lives feel for these women who are now being dragged into this and they have nothing to do with johnny depp now carrying kierra in delina. Their names are part of this drama. And according to kira and marian they tell us like why we were never even romantically dated part of it. That's the worst part of the if somebody denies there your data when you say you did and it's on court documents said negative about this. Johnny's just wants to come out swinging. He wants to clear everything and go so he's got nothing to lose right now the position he's in even though farrah's outside his list you can lose a lot with this fahim. It's like there's nothing to lose. This is heaven hell scenario. It's heaven for the lawyers. I only gel for everyone else. One hundred percent. I totally agree and by the way there are times where companies know that. They're not wrong. They know that they are not liable for what happens to somebody but lawyers will say you need to settle this out of court because it's gonna cost you more in the long run. Why is no one sitting down with johnny depp. In saying yo at this point we know what you want to do. You want to clear your name. We know you're eagles getting involved. But you have to protect some of your reputation and dragging this out in american court after we just did it for a year in the uk cords. This is not going to be good for you. Take the l you still got ten million fantastic beasts. Somebody's gonna come back around for you. Mel gibson can get back from sugar. Tits. you can get back from this. Mean buddy but it's bunny but it's not all right. Well let's move on now normally when you're not dealing with an ugly trial there are so many perks. Do being a famous actress. Money fame and boyfriends. Like brad pitt. But gwyneth paltrow says the cost of fame was so high that she didn't want to keep doing it. Here's how she explained it on sirius. Xm's quarantined with bruce part of the shine of acting. What wore off. You know being in such intense public scrutiny beings a kid who's like living every break-up on every headline like being criticized for everything you do say in where show and also the the you know you're you're it's so transitory you're always all over. You think was more famous for her acting or for headlines. Sometimes i think back. In the olden days of hollywood in the early two thousands they kinda sorta went hand in hand. I think you became more famous when you were in a couple. And i think that's why a lot of times eight listeners hookup because they realize that their currency is doubled. Now still true today. The people don't use it as much as the used to i think. Stars kerry washington a-list stars mindy kaelin. They don't really use their relationships. Kids that are personalized very much. They have restricted that access and they got smart because they realized that once you do it once you can never stop ever even if you wanna stop it yet.

I assure the tabloids all the time about relationships but nine hundred ninety eight was her year sliding doors shakespeare in love expectations that was about the film's first and foremost and then after. That came all this when i started google and that created like a whole new kind of door to joe. And yeah she. She's now opened the doors to say like whatever. But i also think he's at a point now where she is just like take handles it all so much better. That's why she's clearly pursued kept pursuing this staying in the main stream and being super famous at the way she could've hidden away and not been out and about but she's everywhere like does not shy away at all so she's clearly got come to terms with this. I do think like it always helps if you can get into a relationship with another celebrity. I mean if you're trying to increase your fame. I'm that's why you have so many I'm using i know wags is not a bad term but i mean the women who there are a lot of women that go after just famous people are a lot of men that just go after famous women and it's like they do that for a period of time because they're really trying to increase their stardom and it helps

European Road Tripping In 1975 with Marshall & Debbie Hockett
"Hello Travel, nerds and welcome to the extra packing peanuts travel podcast the show that teaches you how to travel more while spending less. Host Travis Sherry and joining me today or to people who in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, five, hopped on a plane to Europe. Grabbed the VW named Banana spent a year exploring the continent and then wrote a book about it forty five years later Marshal and Debbie, Hawk it from tripping nine hundred and seventy-five dot com marshland. Debbie thanks for joining me. Huge. Welcome. Thanks for having us and we are going to get into the adventure that you had in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, five. This is a travel podcast after all, we're GONNA, talk about all your travels and how things have changed but to me, the most impressive part isn't the trip itself but that you wrote a book about it, forty five years later because so many people say I want to write a book I WANNA, write a book I want to write a book and I'll get eventually and you know they never do. So you guys are part of a very small minority that actually did it. So let's let's start with that. Tell us. How the book finally got written and why did it why we find like we got we got to do this. We just have to finish this life goal. Well the book was written all the time, all those years they happened to be A book that was given to us by one of our friends, it was a blank page book. And it was a hardback on the spine of the book was written tripping nine, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy five and our friend presented it to us before we laughed. Oh look. Just happened as. The original. So he wrote a journal every almost every day the woman who gave us this we're about A. Week from going on this trip for a year and she with noticed us. She gave us this book and she said. You've got to be completely truthful. You got be truthful and I want to be the first person who reaches thing. her name Melissa Marian Marcus. I said sure. I agree to those terms. Traveling for a year. When we got back. She was the first person reading. She loved. Unfortunately. Mary died of cancer. So. Anyhow I was busy having my own law firm. Makes CETERA. Sat on the shelf. This on behind. So it sat there for a long time a long time. We resumed our careers. Marshall had a really good a domestic family law practice in San Diego. And then he was appointed by governor, to be a judge, you weren't just sitting around not doing anything. Let's put it that way. Right you guys now. Retirement. We already had our retirement. That's right. That's right. You're taking it early. So so you go through this and the book sits on the shelf and sitting there and singer take us then to the decision to actually. Make into a published book that it is. Now, whose idea was it? was there any hesitation to doing it or did you think now after all these years you know we have to? That was known for traveling because just like you are. Trailing I was talking to court Turco and she was saying Gosh all the places you've been your write a book. Some clicked in my mind I said you know I think Arne. So. So I. Needed to. Do. Prologue. epilogue. Their tell her he made a sense of easy. It was not easy. Now hold on here. Yeah. Just just type it up epilogue prologue but. was, it was it word for word from the Journal or did you have to go back and you know add some different language or or make it read more like a book like I corrected some spelling? Errors. There were many corrections at all. It's it's pretty much word for word. Wow. Wow what and so you mentioned that you guys are now you're known for traveling. That wasn't the only trip that you talk all that kind of stuff. What do you see? As some of the biggest differences between like when you travel and then. Now or recently and back then because that must have been a pretty neat trip down memory lane. Going back through the book, typing it up. But then saying, well, this could never happen nowadays or this wouldn't happen nowadays because of this this and this gives us some of the biggest differences. The number of tourists. It's crazy now. So way less tourist. Then then there are now have you have you noticed that like just across Europe or would you say it's kind of a worldwide phenomenon now at this point like it's just so much more accessible for let's say regular everyday people to get a plane ticket to go see a place that they've always dreamed of seeing. That's what I would say. Yes. And since more people have traveled and written books. About it I think people wanted to travel more you can't touch stone. Stonehenge. They don't allow that you guys now. You can't see. The. Mona. Lisa, they're just eighty thousand lots of tourists near behind them across the room at A. Painting that is now the size of. Came
The History Of Martin Micronius
"On this episode, five minutes in Church history. We are returning to the reformation and talking about a reformer that you might have never heard of before Martin Micronesia's he was born in fifteen, twenty, three engagement and Flanders when I hear the word gant or the place can't always think of the altarpiece that beautiful painting. So Martin Mike Kronius is Dutch. It appears that he was a medical doctor and studied medicine, and there's even testimony that he published medical works. But then he got intrigued by the reformation and became a reformer he studied at Basel at Strasbourg, and then in fifteen forty nine, he went to London there in London he became associated with John Alaska this was the Polish reformer who also ended up in London And he and Martin my Kronius and a few others were intent on establishing a little Geneva in London. This would be a place for a European reformers to be in. London, they were not Lutherans. Anglicans they were reformed and they were trying to carve out a place for themselves. Well, he lasco published a few works to help for the liturgy and in the work by Martin. Is was published in London in fifteen, fifty four. He says this on the Ministry of the word. No church gathering is ever held among us in which the church is not taught to some extent from God's word in order for it to be edified, admonished and comforted, and for very good reasons, the scriptures are not expounded in sermons on is located parentheses as in the practice among the papists. Instead we take some book of the Bible either from the old or the New Testament, and we expound it from the beginning to the end in all sermons. We successfully read from this book as much as can be edifying, -Ly and properly expounded and explained within one hour. If necessary the ministers of the word are also admonished not to go too much beyond the scope of their text in their preaching rather they should as much as possible take all their teaching admonishment exhortation rebuke in comfort from the present text. So there you have it, you stick with the text, but you also see that this sermon was an hour long. So these Dutch as we know are tough the service that he also was trying to get established. There at this church in London, we not only have the sermon. In fact, it would start off with a prayer prayer for elimination. Then there'd be the Lord's prayer. Then they'd read a psalm. Then they'd read a scripture that the sermon was from and then you'd have the sermon the hour long sermon. Then they would pray for strength and by that, they mean to live out the meaning of that sermon and to live out the application of that sermon. then. They would read the Decalogue, the Ten Commandments. Yes. Every Sunday reading through the Ten Commandments. Then there would be a brief admonishment related to the Ten Commandments. Then there would be a confession of sin than there would be a prayer of forgiveness and then there would be a warning to the impertinent those that were not willing to confess their sins. Then, they'd recite the apostles creed than there would be prayers for intercession of the congregation than the Lord's prayer. Then another psalm, then a- benediction and that was the service that Martin my Kronius was trying to establish there in. London. Well, all of these efforts came to a halt when Edward the six died and he was replaced by his half sister. Mary. And you know this is the time of Marian exiles and One of those exiles was Martin my Kronius he ended up in Norton in Germany, which is on the North Sea. while. He was there. He held some debates with Meno Simon's yes of the Mennonites and he also published his catechism in fifteen, fifty five in Dutch and it was there in Norton that he died fifteen, fifty nine well, that is Martin, my Kronius, the Dutch reformer in London.
