"With the CUC, the indigenous labor rights organization. She fought for better conditions for farm workers on the coast. And in addition to speaking kiche she taught herself Spanish and other Mayan languages. That way, she could teach different communities across Guatemala about resisting military oppression. We Roberta's activism made her a target for retaliation from the government. She went into hiding in Guatemala and then fled to Mexico. But she continued to organize for indigenous rights from afar. Tens of thousands of guatemalans fled to Mexico in the early 1980s. Most of them were indigenous mines. In 1983, when rigoberta was in her early 20s, she told her life story to an anthropologist. Over the course of 8 days, they are recorded hours and hours of tape. These recordings eventually became the book. An Indian woman in Guatemala. The book captivated readers around the world, it was a detailed, painful telling of her life experiences in war torn Guatemala. And it garnered international support for the Guatemalan resistance movement. In 1992, rigoberta received the noble Peace Prize. At that time she was the youngest person to have ever received the award and the first indigenous person to do so. She used her prize money to create the rigoberta menchu foundation. The foundation is dedicated to education, healthcare, and community development for indigenous guatemalans. After the end of the Civil War in 1996, the foundation helped repatriate refugees. Today, the foundation focuses on civic education and voting rights. In 1998, an American academic published a book discrediting some of the details and rigoberto memoir. His research was featured on the front page of The New York Times, lounging rigoberta into the controversy and forcing her to respond to accusations. She has said she will defend her book to the death. Since then, other scholars have also defended her work. Even a member of the novel comets he noted that memoirs often contain embellishments. And in the end, when someone is arguing over whether a man was burnt alive or murdered them burned, the exact details seem less important. The stories LEGO Berta taught the world to hear due represent the kinds of very real violence and pain many poor indigenous guatemalans face and her activism today has kept these stories and experiences in the spotlight. All month, we're talking about peace builders. For more information, find us on Facebook and Instagram at will manica podcast.

"New moment. And everything that kind of comes out of that is because of the monolith like this inevitable extension of a series of events that it set off. And if you take the monolith symbol literally as these aliens are popping this thing here, which it's in the movie, it's kind of hard not to, because we don't meet the aliens, but we do get to the aliens home. Right. So you get the sense, they probably did put it there that we had, we had act two is where man has finished this arc that started with that bone and ended with the lunar base and then the monolith, what they discover is that the monolith is essentially pointing to Jupiter. And so we can begin, we can begin the journey. And that's the Odyssey. Step three or sorry, act three is the beginning of the Odyssey. And yeah, and it's time to it's time to get to the other end of this tightrope between man and the over mench or the ubermensch. And realize what man is meant to become.

I mean, you have our man calling his kid at home for some reason. Again, just to like, as far as I can tell, it's really just to like, it's really just to show us Kubrick's vision of the future.

"Come from? Is it true? And if it's not true, what is true? What is the truth? And how do I want to show up every day living out that belief in that truth? And that's where I've come today in this work. And it's an everyday practice for sure. Yes, is that kind of what you do for the parents how they're really looking for themselves so they can shift the way that they relate to their kids, how they raise them and in addition to, like I said, some practical learning of the adolescent brain, because there's been so much that has been uncovered about the second phase of the brain in early teen years and how that really affects the way I think. The fact that they are risk takers during this time period and why that is. And so educating parents on we're doing a great job when our kids are born to learn about babies and stuff like that. But then we kind of get busy with life and we don't immerse ourselves into learning child development during the 15 year period of adolescence. So it's important to educate parents to help them learn some skills that will help them stay calm. Look at those limiting beliefs because all three of those things are really part of the puzzle. And so when parents practice these things, and we get together, usually, about two months. So once a week for two months is pretty much and some people will keep on with that because they'll want to continue every week to make sure that they are kind of accountable. But the learning period and the change period is really over about 8 week period of time. So and that's I really work with parents who are very committed to making change. Not that, you know, that they're going to be consistently showing up. I'm going to show up for them. They're going to show up for me. And they're going to do the work in between and we're going to really push the boundaries and change some patterns. I love that. And for any of my listeners that maybe interested in just reaching out to you to learn more about what you do or sign up for, you know, one of your coaching parenting classes, where can they reach you at? They can go to my website, which is real life parent guide dot com. I always do a 30 minute complementary consultation. I think it's very important that I learn a little bit more about the situation, the parent is in. And also share how I can help their unique family. So always a 30 minute consult and again, it's real life parent guide dot com. Okay, well, you guys heard that. And I love the fact that you said you do the 30 minute consultation. So you can really help them on an individualized basis based on what they're going through. It's really my passion and purpose to help each family that I get to touch. It's amazing.

"Being punished and shamed. And so this is, I think the biggest challenge that I have with finding parents who are interested and courageous enough to look within themselves because there's such a shame that, you know, like, oh, I'm a Sophie parent. I yell, my mom yelled, and they know it's a problem. But they've got to get past that shame or that bad feeling, you know, to get to get to a place of darn it, it ends with me. I am going to take responsibility and do the work that's needed because my grandkids are going to my children are one day going to have kids and those kids are going to be raised on what my kids learned about themselves. So what happened with them with me? I have a 17 year old in the 22 year old. And so I'm a nurse. And when my daughter was thinking about what she wanted my oldest was thinking about going to college and, you know, what she wanted to do and then she kept changing her mind and I was like, oh, you should just go to nursing school. You know, I think it's great. I was like, but you don't have to go to nursing school, but, you know, there's a lot of different avenues. And I really wasn't, in my mind, I wasn't pushing it on her. Well, she did. She went to nursing school and she hated it. And she didn't want to tell me she had switched majors. So, finally, I ended up seeing like this book. And I was like, oh, this is not a nurse in book that I. And then she finally told me and it was the sense of I'll let you down that she, you know, I was looking at her and I'm like, you didn't let me down. I don't really care. What you do, I was just kind of throwing ideas. Out there, just giving you options, but she, at that moment, when I was talking to her, she really felt like she had let me down and she was just like, I'm so sorry. And I'm like, oh, where did that come from? Yeah, yeah, it's amazing. You know, just to speak a relationship that I've had with my dad over the years and now he's read this book. And he's a little like, you know, he's 81 years old and he's a little, you know, sees things a little bit differently than I do and feels like kind of maybe threw him under the bus. And it would have been really easy for me to fall back into that belief that I'm not worthy of being heard. Because of his disapproval about some of the things I put in the book. It would have been so easy for me to fall back into that childhood belief and then the one that operated for many years in my adulthood as well. But I thought, you know, I also say in the book that, and this is related to spanking. But I also say in the book that this was a very accepted form of discipline when I was growing up. And it didn't happen in my house very often, but they were incidents that really made an impact on me. So I guess that all that is to say is it's very easy to unconsciously fall back into some beliefs. I had to talk to myself that day that, you know, like I had to be like, okay, Kim, you know, he's unhappy. He's disapproving. You know, what did I do? How did I, you know, and then I was like, wait a minute. Wait a minute. I've done way too much work on myself. And I know that I'm worth listening to. And I know that so many people who read this book will identify with the situation. And it's not about my dad and throwing him under the bus. It's about sharing a truth and a perspective that I took on. He did not intend to hurt to hurt to have it. He did not intend the moment of spanking me to turn into a belief about myself, right? And so we can't help how our children or anyone perceives the moment that they're in with us. We have can have the best of intentions, but our kids can take on things that we don't necessarily mean for them to take on. Right? We can't control that. But we can be that place of wanting to rectify a situation if it does come up. If your daughter, I'm sure when your daughter has said that, it was like, oh my gosh, you know, certainly that's not what I meant. And hopefully she then got the validation that she needed by telling you exactly how she had felt in that moment. Yes, he did . And like you said, I grew up too. When thinking were really acceptable, like you said, they didn't happen all the time, but they did happen. It wasn't abnormal. Like, today you don't really see spankings at all. So but I loved in your book, even though, you know, you mentioned, you know, the incident, you know, you got this thinking. I really felt like your dad was like a dad I knew, so your love for both the appearance still shown in the book, even though you, you know, you develop a certain belief behind what happened. It was like, I can relate to what you were feeling, and I can relate as a parent growing up, you know, and in a time that's thinking we're really acceptable that yeah, I get it. Yeah, yeah, and I like I said, I think even if you haven't had the experience of what I share in the book and those different 6 stories, the feelings that go along with it are really well developed and identified by people like yourself who are like, yeah, you know, I know exactly. I know exactly from a parent perspective, how my dad felt, he must have been frustrated or overwhelmed or just lacked the parenting skill or empathy in the moment of those things. And I can see that myself as a parent, obviously, at this point. But as a child, this is what I took on as a result of that. Yeah. As kids, we don't have the knowledge and the coping skills eat quite yet to kind of dissect like what's really happening and what's really going on. So it's totally different. Right. And it's the beautiful thing is that, again, you can go back and ask yourself, what do I really believe? And where did it

"Don't even fit to who we are. Right. I totally agree with you. And so the work that I do with moms in terms of parent coaching is less about strategies. You know, there's some strategic ways that you can create more open communication with your children. But it's really about helping mom understand she's in the driver's seat of the kind of relationship she wants to have with her children. And she is also the emotional parameter in the family. So I truly believe that when moms are in alignment when they're listening to their intuition when they're drowning out all the messages that we're constantly getting from our culture, that we have the ability to ripple that calmness out to the rest of our family and our kids can come to us, knowing that we're going to listen and we're going to see them for who they are and not who they think they need to be. I love the fact that you said you really helped them to realize that they are the emotional parameter. So you are setting the stage and the kids they mimic our emotions, how we handle things, how we project our feelings and emotions. So that's an important piece. Yeah, absolutely. So, you know, I know I know a lot of moms and dads get overwhelmed with, you know, their kid just isn't doing this, and the other thing. And they're looking for these three step quick answer to get the kid to listen to get the kid to do what they're supposed to do kind of thing. And I can tell you from my own parenting, when I started working on myself, that's when the changes took place with my kids and their own challenges, which is not to say make that there's no challenges and whatever and that, you know, everything is perfect at the mint house. That's not saying that at all. I'm just what I'm saying is it's an ongoing practice. And I've learned how to have conversations with my kids that are really tough to have sometimes that I maybe would have not had previously or I wouldn't have felt capable emotionally of handling a conversation about my daughter potentially having sex or these kinds of things. We just have to get more open as people and more truthful and honest with ourselves so that we can spread that. And really that's what the book is about is sharing my truth in the hopes that it inspires other people to give themselves permission to do that same thing. I love that. What kind of what made you decide to sort of look at your beliefs? Was it the phone call with your son or was it already kind of trickling down to like getting to that point of I need to sit back and look at what part of these beliefs serve me now and what why am I holding on to this? I think I mean, it's hard to pinpoint like an exact moment. I have I know that the situation with my son and that phone call, which precipitated about I don't know a year or 18 months of some really major ups and downs for him for our whole family. That started my inward looking I don't think it was until about a couple of years ago when I started in my coaching practice and really working with parents. Because as a coach, if I'm not growing, I don't continuously grow. If I just decide, oh, I'm where it's at. I'm, you know, I know it all. That's going to stifle the client's ability to get where they want to go. So I am constantly learning how to grow and looking for more truth and seeking that. So I would say a couple of years ago when I really kind of hit a wall with not being able to help some of my clients get through making changes in their relationships with their kids that I really started to look at limiting beliefs. It was part of the program, but I did a deep dive into that. And it started with me. You know, I can't help someone through something that I haven't walked through myself. You know, and so that's where I think it really came from was like, you know, the key here is what we believe about ourselves. So what do I believe about myself? And gosh, where did that come from? You know, where and it not necessarily like overnight. I came up with, oh, these are the 6 things that I believe about myself. It took some time. It took some journaling. It took some reflection. And it took some knowing that I was worth it that I was worth investing that time in. So that's another thing that I would love to share with your listeners in terms of, you know, if you're in a place where you're unhappy with maybe where things are going or what's going on in your life, start to question yourself. And, you know, take some time to journal or take some time to ask and meditation in the quiet of our lives of our days when we create that quiet space for ourselves is where we can find the answer because the answer is always within us. I love the fact that when you're talking about being a parent, because I must say as a parent, when I'm holding on to a Pacific belief of feeling unworthy or I'm wondering if, you know, where I fit in when I was reading your book at one point I just stopped and was like, you know, it was a different scenario, but like, oh my goodness, where did I, when did what point of my childhood or adult life, what part made me feel like this? And did I actually spread this to my kids to make them feel like they have to be a certain way or you have to go to this college to feel worthy of my love or, you know? So I really stopped and was like, wow, I need to really, really think about where I'm at in my life and how much of this is affecting my parenting and my relationship with my kids because it came from somewhere. Yeah. And, you know, it's not for I always say that my clients and the people who pick up this book are the people who have the courage to look within. I don't think it's going to speak to someone who doesn't want to know or doesn't just either they're not ready for whatever. But I do think that the clients that come to me either it's through the book or any other avenue. They are the ones that, you know, have the courage to like, you know what? This has gone on. Maybe they inherited some beliefs like you said before . And or some behaviors. You know, they don't know what to do besides yell at their kid. And they see how destructive it's becoming, and they feel the tension in their home and they just don't want that. And they want to do better and do differently, but they don't know how. And that takes a courageous person to be able to look within because we were raised and a lot of us were raised myself included with

"Learn more in my own growing and seeking consciousness and being intentional with my kids. Over the years, I've learned, but I sure wish. And there's nothing, you know, you have to release what you didn't know. But, you know, when people say the kid doesn't come with a manual kind of thing. What I want to say and I think one of the most important things that I could tell your listeners today is that we are the manual on which our grandchildren will be raised. And so that doesn't mean we need to be perfect because that's not possible anyway. It does mean if you hear that and that resonates with you that we need to be intentional. And we need to practice taking good care of ourselves, emotionally, so we can be available to our kids. Yeah. I like the part about being emotionally there for our kids. Sometimes we forget to be emotionally there in the moment with them because they have, especially in the teen years, kids have so many emotions so much going on that we for we forget to just be there sometimes with them. Right. And they won't come to us. Make it, they won't come to us with their challenges or their questions or their struggles if they, in any way, shape or form, feel that we're not open and by that, I mean, we're stressed, we're busy we're just not there. The phone. And whatever else, you know how you can be in a conversation, but you're not really there. And they know that. And they're not going to they're going to pick up on that. And they're going to they're just not going to come to you. And we really, especially during their adolescence, need to be calm in their storm, because there's a lot to growing up these days, lives. So we didn't even have to deal with, right? Yes. I'm so glad. So what's the story behind your book? How did what made you decide hey I need to get the story up. I need to tell the story. Wow. You know, I think it's calling in my heart. A couple of years ago, the title was downloaded to me, just on I was doing housework or I was just some funding. And I was just like, wow, becoming me while raising you. That really just, and it was shortly after Michelle Obama's book or shortly before I went Michelle Obama's book becoming came out. Okay. Oh no, I'm screwed. That's already taken. I thought it was just such an amazing, just the word becoming. And that's what we're always doing is we're becoming that's what life is, you know, a learning every day is a learning journey for us. And so the title was downloaded to me. And I didn't quite know what to do with it. And then it became like a burning, I got to write this book. I got to write this book. And I really struggle last summer I read a book that was very impactful for me. It's called the top 5 regrets of the dying by brawny ware. And it is all about she was a hospice worker for many years. And she compiled what she says are the top 5 regrets of people who are passing away. And the first regret, the first regret is that you lived a life for what everyone else needed you to be and not who you truly were. Truly are. And I read that and I was like, I had been juggling a job and trying to build my parent coaching business and my husband's business was highly affected by the pandemic and so much was going on for everyone. But I read this book and I thought I have to write this book. And it's just not getting done. It's just not getting done because I'm trying to do all the things. And I tell parents all the time, how they need to be present to their children and here I am living this life of trying to keep us together financially and provide the insurance and trying to write this book and build a coaching business. And so I went to my husband and I said, I have to get this book out. And I need to quit my job in order to do that. And that was a huge risk. And it didn't come with his support initially. So that's what I did at the end of 2020. I quit my job and I got up every morning at 5 o'clock because that was the most clear time for me and it was quiet in the house. And I gave myself a deadline. I was like, the end of January, I'm going to have this book ready to go. I have to have it to the next step because it had been hanging over my head for a long time. So that's what I did. I gave myself a deadline and I got up every morning and I meditated and I disciplined myself and I didn't even know quite where I was going with it until again the work of discovering what I was believing about myself and whether or not it was true became so apparent to me. I thought this is a universal truth for everybody. This is. And so while these stories that I tell from my childhood are very they're very raw in their very, I think relatable to people and the reason that they're going to get the lesson from this book is not because maybe they've even had anything just like that happen to them. But the emotions that are attached to the stories are things that everybody I think can relate to. Feeling a Los of trust within oneself, feeling like you're not good enough is a universal belief that we take on and I can come from a lot of different places for me. It was one particular thing. But and it gets reinforced because when we believe something about ourselves, we start seeing evidence of that over and over and over again. So to shift those beliefs, like now I believe that I'm worth listening to. And so I get on podcasts like years and years. And you know, I spread the news and the word of limiting beliefs and how they can affect us because I think it's so important for us to be working on this now. And now is the time to be doing this. Yeah. And when you talk about the limiting belief, sometimes we don't even realize that we picked up beliefs that may not always be our beliefs about ourselves. Yeah, it's so easy to attach someone else beliefs on to ours, and then they become ours without even realizing that we have something that

"Welcome back. It is time for tea with Mikita. So as many of you know, I've spent much of my young adult years trying to please other people and I never really took the time to really like examining where those beliefs come from. Why do I feel like I have to make other people happy? And never really look at what makes me happy. And when I was started to really think about this, then I started to ask myself well, what part of that childhood spilled over into my adult life and to my adult relationships and really like how does those things like how have they affected me, my kids, my husband and any of the relationships that I form, and that's why I am so happy to have with me today, author of becoming me while raising you, a mother's journey to herself.

Can really help other people to really come to terms and just give us a different idea of what's, you know, we're not alone. And what we go through in life. Yeah. I agree. And I think the book, the book really is written in three parts. So the first part is called becoming me. And those were the that identified 6 beliefs that I had about myself. And, you know, I've been doing this kind of self reflective work for about ten years, but just a couple of years ago I came to this idea of like, what do I really believe about myself? And where did that come from? So the beginning of the book are the 6 different beliefs that I took on about myself that I think are common beliefs that people have about themselves. But I went back and I thought, when was the first time I remember feeling this way, in particular, the first one is that I'm not worthy of being heard. When was the first time that I can literally recall this feeling that way? And so as you know, as you know, read the book that particular incident with my dad, which was not out of the ordinary, but it was a parent child situation is when I took on that belief about myself. So at the beginning of the book is these 6 beliefs, including I'm not worthy of being heard. I need to perform for love and approval. I can't trust myself. I don't make healthy decisions. I'll never be good enough. And pay close attention to money or be very careful around money. So those are the beliefs that I operated from while, you know, heading through my teen years and into my young adulthood and even carry for many years into the second part of the book, which is called raising you. And that is where I really show many examples of how these limiting beliefs played out in my marriage and in my parenting of 5 children for many years. The other part of the second, the second portion of the book, the raising me part is the opportunity that I had. And I don't think people discuss this topic as an opportunity, but I'm going to hear my son at the age of 20 called me from our home state of Wisconsin to tell me we were living in Texas at the time. He was 20, and he called tell me that he'd lost the last three days of his life to an alcohol binge. It wasn't the first time and he needed help. So that was really my parenting wake-up call and my opportunity not only to learn about addiction and how it affected my son and our family, but how I could use the opportunity of addiction to grow up as a mom. And not many people talk about it in that sense. You know, there's a lot of times when we talk about addiction in terms of either woe is me or I can't get this child to do this or that or kind of a, it is a very challenging situation to be in with a child or a parent or a sibling. However, I used it. I just made a decision to use it to help me learn more about myself. Learn more about parenting and to make some shifts within myself. And that's where I began the work of looking at what do I believe about myself? How is that affecting me and the people I love most? And is it true? And if it's not true, what is true? So the last portion of the book really looks at the beliefs that I have shifted into and since you're not there, I don't want to be as far as I'm going to tell you what those are. But the point is that everybody takes on some beliefs about themselves in their childhood that aren't true. Just because of the nature of the parent child relationship or if maybe not a parent, it might be a teacher. It might be we're so influenced in our young ages, which is something I wish I would have understood better when my kids were little. I mean, I kind of knew, but now I really know how impactful those first 5 or 6 years are. And I don't say that to want to throw my parents under the bus for the way they raised us because I think we've been parenting a lot generationally a lot of the same and what we're seeing is a rise in childhood behavior issues in anxiety and depression. And I think some of those things can be attributed to the way that we're parenting and needing to evolve the way that we're raising our children to one of them and not over them. I think their behaviors are screaming at us to recognize and see them for who they are and not for who we want or need them to be. I agree. I think as a parent myself, I would have known how impressionable what my kids watched on TV, what they listened to, if in that moment what they were soaking those things up because they're my little sponges. They soak up everything. And if I could have just added some content on what they were seeing, what they were listening to to really help them to understand how much of this is a reality and how it's affecting them. I could have been, you know, I feel like much more effective parent, you know, I don't. I don't beat myself up over it, but it's just like, you know, you don't know, you can't teach what you don't know. That's right. And that's exactly true. And when we know better, we do better. And, you know, I certainly, like I said, I wish I would have understood when my kids, my kids at this point are 16 to 33 years old. So I definitely learn

"So i was. I launched that. And i had other clients that i was also working with so it wasn't just that one client marketing agency. Okay and then at some point you moved back. You move that agency back to florida. Is that right or or no. Yes yes i was there for twelve years right okay. Okay and there was. There was a start stop. Because when i got there. Originally it was right at the height of the tech bubble. So i got a picture going up. A roller coaster is just about almost to the top as the economy is just completely plummeted in the early two thousands but then there was the restart. Things happen fast out there so that was a twelve year. Got it okay so this cocktail napkin plant thing. Can you tell. What can you walk us through that. That i'm really interested in that force. You said it's a four stage processor. For when i was consulting. I would use a cocktail napkin and just ask some questions and help the clients get clearer. And i figured if i can do this lennon napkin. Why not make it leg internet interactive template which was a pdf and walks you through four steps four questions and so the person answers the questions and it provides marketing clarity and it also has strategies to choose and it creates a one year time line with quarterly marketing strategies and goals and at the end of fits on a cocktail napkin. So you can actually print it out the size of cocktail napkin okay. So tell napkin. Plan dot com if anybody wants to grab a free strategy template okay cocktail napkin. Plant dot com. So okay. that's that's like a four quadrant thing. I like it. So when so i don't know i guess i guess i'm mench denali since i've got you here and since you're marketing expert and most people aren't i think most people probably couldn't would have a hard time filling out the napkin. My right 'cause. I think i might have a hard time filling out the napkin interesting. I've had people that say. This is so ridiculously simple. And i've had other people tell me that. They spend eight hours on holloway in their condo in lake tahoe by the fireplace told everybody does not talk to them for eight hours straight and so it. It's a different experience for everyone..

"And take over that as we decide. What exactly do we need at those locations. Because like i said our concept is a little bit different because we're not actually cooking everything at our ghost kitchen. We're actually smoking. All of our meets on location at our master smoke house and then deliveryman for distribution on a daily basis multiple times. A day goes kitchens. All right so that's thirty five thousand number. I liked that a lot more. There's an interesting thing at play. Here i want. I want the bear venture to be lower right. I think that somebody's sinking in their house. And everything they own it being so over leveraged to get into their dream. Restaurant is a vulnerability that's been exposed in a so unbelievably difficult and we kind of have preyed on our own passions and sold ourselves streaming. I know because. I've closed multiple restaurants because you get too close to your baby too close to that dream so i do want the berry to be lower however i don't want this. Churn burn mentality. That i've seen play out in this kind of ghost kitchen space right now where it's like you can open in two weeks. It'll cost you eight grand like let's just get going and the reality is like it's fucking hard no matter what you're doing if you're in the food and beverage industry it's going to be a challenge and you need to address aware of those challenges. And so that's what i want to you. One fifty seventy five thousand dollars. I like that number. I like another because you have enough skin. The game where you're gonna take every step seriously and invest in all the right places and not just be a gunslinger try and get in there and fight your way out of every hole that you put yourself in also. Don't want to be in a position where you are again putting your house up in these different elements so i think there's some interesting to to unpack here so want to be able to understand that fifty seventy five thousand dollars that feels like a reasonable number for a barrier to entry into virtual food hall style ghost kitchen so as far as investment goes. That's the numbers that i would be thinking about. Be able to make it work. Could you make it work for less. Yes absolutely you could yet. You're going to put yourself in a situation where you're always playing in the red. That is such a huge struggle. And i think we'll talk about that. A little bit more we talk about some of the differences the nuance of cost especially in marketing. And some of the things that we haven't traditionally spent money on so we'll dig into that a little bit. I do want to talk about that price per square foot because it's a very different potential number Ange maybe if you can just jump back in for a second. Give us that expectation price per square foot. The rent you mentioned the ten percent eight eight percent ten percent. Occupancy percentage costs your renton in those elements that feed into that. What's traditional and what you may be seeing a little bit more on these virtual food halls than i wanna come to coyote gotta break that down as as kind of a real estate Mench on this show. Yeah absolutely and i think sean mentioned you know. These numbers are going to vary wildly based on where you are in the country or even where you are geographically within a city. I'm sure that sean is probably seen different rights from location to location even in the same city You know but when you're looking at price per square foot you know. Maybe maybe are fortunate. And you're paying something as low as like twenty eight dollars per square foot or maybe you're looking at the hottest part time with a.

"To. Everybody and your listeners have heard me say this before is that we have got to start to clean up the pollution of sarcasm and retarget questions and humiliating other people. That abounds online online culture. Is our culture. You know we still exist in this. Three dimensional world but we spend the vast majority of our work lives. Our social lives are detainment lives plugged in. That's how it is. So i didn't even know there's a distinction between online culture and whatever else exists in the world and online culture is dominated by humiliation sarcasm. Rhetorical questions pylon attitudes. We have got to unplug from that. We i don't mean unplug in terms of leaving social media and social media all the time but don't participate in those anger. driven threads. Don't participate in them because we will not make it as a civilization if we ourselves over constantly every hour every day to sarcasm and humiliation it's incredibly demeaning to the individual will stay out of it for one hour. Watch yourself stand taller. Try it try it. There's a a google laxer I can't believe his news escaped me. We've had him on the show. Almost a half dozen times of brilliant gentleman who's talked about The dangers of of ai. Being our child. And i reading everything that we right online. And that's what it's learning from right. That's a brilliant observation. And how could that be avoidable. You know i mean it's going to happen. Every parent knows you teach by example you may like you may dislike it but i think everyone accepts that is a fact witnessed it in the lives of my own children. How could that not be true. And that ought to give us tremendous. Toss absolutely mogo dad. His name popped into had mugabe so on that note. Any last words of. I don't know if you're gonna even enjoy this word wisdom you want to share with us today mench. I do believe that we have much greater power than we were raised to believe. I do believe that we've seen too much to conclude anything but the fact that our thoughts are causative our thoughts have caused properties and there may be many many different conditions and circumstance which alter our experience of that which alter that as an observable law. But it is there. And i do believe that there is a pendulous quality of reciprocity in our lives and another way of talking about as above so below. Everything is interconnected so take seriously the power that you have is an individual both in the positive and the negative and we have an obligation. And i think our civilization stands on it our relationship stand on it not to participate in the gossip the sarcasm the hate the humiliation that so dominates online life and if we are participating in it we have to honor the fact that that's having an impact on our experience right now and on the experience of other people. We can't have one without the other you know. We can't just have the law of attraction or selection. You know as. I put it as being this wonderful potential of were not also paying attention to it in its in its in its negative expression so pay attention to it and it's negative expression pay attention to it and its.

It was out but I think just to soak used to just normal animation that seen seeing these kinds of shows levies head reddin stampede of before and come the that the animation That doesn't seem to be for me. Because it's an old cartoon but i think helps missing the point Bad then and it was the film. I remember watching the film for some reason. I dunno for friend or something made me sit and watch it I really enjoyed that film. Good so i should really go back. I'm sure there somewhere on the internet to watch. So i definitely i mean you talked about animation and kinda similar to i think of the simpsons. There's an era that period in the the initial. Run all early on beavis and butthead animations really messed up novoye are off like they've not quite found the look on the direction not quite found the style i find even find the episodes less funny.

A possible life raft for small businesses selling online
"Episodes every wednesday. Small businesses are being thrown into the e commerce deep end. One company is offering a possible life raft from american public media. This is marketplace tech. I'm molly would for many small businesses. The pandemic driven abrupt shift to selling on the internet is a huge change. Plenty of brick and mortar store. Owners were selling in person only using everything from spreadsheets to paper and pencil to keep track of it all so companies are increasingly offering new tools to help brick and mortar stores manage their inventory and figure out which online platforms are best for them into. It launched something called quickbooks commerce earlier this year to help companies sell everywhere alex chris as the vp of the small business group into it so the most basic is in person right so you can imagine a retail store or if you're at a farmers market and you wanna be able to just sell with people in front of you but then there's lots of online channels as well so you can through amazon. You can have your own website and then there's a lot of selling through social right now so you know all the stores or or sales that are happening through a facebook or instagram. All of those are happening and businesses want access to customers wherever their customers are shopping. And does this product specifically integrate with those like all of a sudden. I have listed my products on instagram shop by an amazon. And i can see how they're doing across all those channels that's right that's the beauty of it is once you are set up in one channel. We are the source of truth for your orders inventory. Got it so so really. What you're saying is that previously small businesses were using quickbooks doing their thing maintaining and didn't necessarily want to explore all these other options or feel like they had to. I don't think they had to. I think they were working well. The economy was going well. And now when all of a sudden you know the world throws a curve ball They figure out how to pivot and persevere and what we're seeing now is a lot of small businesses saying okay. I was fine before. But now i can't have people showing up to my store to buy goods so i'm going to figure out how to sell online. You know here to help. Small businesses think through that and allow them to be able to survive. What about the data on the back end is like are you discovering internally what channels are the most effective we have not only the orders that are now coming in so the revenue that a small businesses making but we have all their expense information as well. Because that's what they've been using quick books to reconcile so now they can start to think about as they're leveraging different channels a social channel. They can now see the efficacy of the of that marketing. Spend and so for the first time they can really see our ally on where they wanna go leverage. Are they finding such great customer acquisition through instagram. That that's where they really wanna go double down there just getting those insights into making them smarter to be able to grow their business. You know we seem to be at this moment where there is actually a burgeoning industry in aggregating small businesses. I wonder if you're going to find that. Ecosystems develop that like facebook says you can't have access to our tools for selling because we're building our own competing product right now. It's certainly a concern on the concept of a walled garden is great for the platform. But it doesn't give the small business access to customers. And so we're that mench pin and the source of truth that can now connects to all the different opening systems. Alex chris is vp of the small business group at intuit and now for some related links. Yesterday we talked a bit about how shop affi- is winning at e. Commerce with growth comes problems. The financial times has a piece this week. That says as many as twenty percent of the shops on shop if i could be a risk to consumers in some way either their total frauds or they're selling counterfeit goods or they're sketchy in some other way.

Wall Street fears volatility long after election day
"Let's start with election chaos kate I'll start with you is. That the thing that would cause markets to bulk like there has been this this increasing conversation about expectations of volatility. If there is a contested election, what does it mean for among other things the economy? Well. You know as I think a lot of us who cover the economy like to point out the stock market isn't the economy, but it's a really important. Part of it is important signals that it sends and right now I think that what we're hearing and seeing and a number of different ways is that Yeah Wall Street is getting nervous I. I. Remember a few weeks ago getting an analyst note from a research firm here in DC laying out all the various scenarios of what might happen and what kind of chaos it could trigger and it just seemed kind of surreal reading it and I asked one of the authors and he said we're just getting so many questions from our investor clients about this issue, they want to know what is going to happen. They WANNA be prepared. You know typically in history. We've had one one of two scenarios either Republican Windsor a Democrat wins in this time it's not clear or you know may we might might not be clear who the winner is for some time maybe the president could challenge legitimacy of the election. There's there's a lot that could happen in Wall Street does not like uncertainty. Yeah Gino what does it mean? If Wall Street starts to get nervous not that I think Wall Street's GonNa Swoop into the rescue here but you know what could that lead to? You know I think it's interesting because this isn't a scenario in which it's really easy to just come up with an immediate solution given enough pressure. You know it is probably the case that we are not going to happen immediate conclusion to the vote count where we're likely not going to know who won on election day, and that's not really a changeable fact. So some some period of uncertainty lies ahead of us I think the real question is whether this election ends up being contested I. think that's clearly the thing that makes investors most nervous right now and I I just don't know what happens in that. Instance because you don't see situation where it would really be in anybody's interest you know there's there's no, it's it's not obvious that a real plummet in stock prices would be the thing that would prompt president trump not to contest this election. Since you know presumably he he would only be contesting if he had already lost and so I think there's there's really opened brushes some real reasons for legal to be nervous in it. That's why you are seeing what keep mench in which is just you know investors increasingly kind of scratching their heads and and looking toward the future with a lot of a lot of uncertainty. Right. Well, the other thing that's happening with all of this uncertainty exacerbated by of course, the Supreme Court fight is is that Congress has I. Think has been pretty effectively taken off the ball with respect to relief, right? Kate. What happens if if literally no more help comes from Congress on top of everything else. That's right I mean it seems like there's a there's perhaps a bigger risk from that scenario for the economy right You know there might be some turbulence around or after the election we don't know what that looks like or how long stock market turbulence. But for the for the fundamentals of the economy we are right now in this period seems really critical. People are trying to figure out what is happening right now what what are we going to see in the data because of course in? The end of July these enhanced unemployment insurance benefits expired and I think that a lot of people who had been receiving those maybe they'd managed to save up some money. They were drying down savings. We didn't see an immediate drop off from the expiration of those benefits, but there are definitely signs that things are slowing and You know we've heard from a number of economists on. We heard it again from Fetterman Jay Powell this week that you know eventually with Out. More fiscal support we're probably going to start to see the negative effects from some of that relief and it's not just uninsured and empl unemployment insurance. It's you know extending credit for small businesses. It might be you know around another round of stimulus checks just to help give people a little more of a cushion. So those are things that both sides want but there are some bigger issues that are kind of keeping them from coming together on this effort DOES THIRTY SECONDS LEFT GINA? Where do you think whereas the urgency? What's IT GONNA. Take. Yeah I mean I think it is a really interesting question what we have seen some sort of centrist Democrats in moderate Democrats really starting to get a little bit nervous in maybe push for some sort of compromise which I think is probably the best hope for compromise before the election I've not heard that we're GonNa get there an instance that we don't. You know there are real risks for the economy ahead. If we do not as as Keith mentioned if we do not have some more spending here I think it's one thing that's worth noting. I think a lot of people are taking comfort in pretty solid economic data right now but. A lot of American households build up solid savings buffers off the spending that happened earlier, and now that is kind of getting worn down in. So at some point in time that they will get through that. Kate Davidson at the Wall Street Journal and Genus smiling at the New York. Times. Thanks so much you too. Thank you. Thanks smelly.
Should Washington Break Up Big Tech?
"Hi everybody I'm John Donvan, and this is intelligence squared us and we've we've just seen something historic happened digitally in the halls of Congress when the four CEO's of four, the biggest tech companies in the World Amazon and apple and facebook and Google were required to testify before Congress, and while there they were put in the position of having to defend their companies against claims that they've just become too big that they've become gigantic to the detriment of the general public that they are using their market power crush competition that they're driven by nothing but their own prophets that they're amassing huge amounts of data and that basically they're running afoul of antitrust laws. Some people are calling this big tex big tobacco moment, which is a callback to the nineteen ninety s when seven. CEOS of Big Tobacco companies all had to appear before Congress, and be accused of doing bad things to the public but is this fair in this case? Are these companies really doing bad things because of their size are they really too big and are you the consumer losing out because they've become big or are you actually benefiting because of the size of these firms? So we think in these questions, we have the makings of debate and that's what. We're going to do, but we're going to do it a little bit differently from our normal approach. Today, we're going to be hosting this conversation in a format that we call a to disagree, and that's where we streamline things a little bit. Go to the news we find the dividing lines, and then we bring you what we do best a debate in the form of a conversation between just two debaters not our usual to against to instead we're one on one and instead of having a resolution, we're really going with a question and the question this time is. Should Washington break up big tech should Washington break up big tech I'm here with two debaters who are GONNA be arguing yes or no to that question Zephyr teach out and Andrew McAfee. So I Zephyr you've debated with us before on stage and I just want to say welcome back to intelligence squared. So excited to be back on. Thank you for having me for such an important discussion. It's a pleasure and for folks who don't know you are a law professor, you're an activist. And as it happens, you came out with a book, this July, the title of which break them up recovering our freedom from big big tech and big money. So which side of the debater you're going to be on again today I definitely think we need to be breaking up these big tech behemoths and hence your book. Okay. Now arguing against your position arguing no on the. Question of whether Washington should break attack. I. WanNa Welcome Andrew McAfee Andrew we've we've been wanting to get you into one of our debates for a long time. We are delighted to have you joining us for this one and all it took was a global pandemic right. Thank you for having us. It's a pleasure and for folks who don't know you also are a bestselling author. You're a principal research scientist at MIT. You're also the CO founder and Co Director of the initiative on the digital economy. So once again, welcome to intelligence squared. So the way that this format will go we'll go in four rounds, the first round Each of the debaters will be making a brief opening remarks about their position on the the question before us and then We will have you know along and lengthy back and forth discussion. Towards. The end we're GONNA go to our third round, which will be where each gets to put a the toughest question they can to their opponent, and then a fourth round will be closing remarks and wrapping things up. So there's a lot to discuss a lot to argue here and we're GONNA start with our opening rounds. That's where each get two minutes to make the case in their position on the question would should Washington break-up big tech? So our first debater will teach out who will be arguing? Yes. On the question of whether Washington, should break up big tax Zephyr. The floor is yours. We are in a moment of a genuine crisis and our democracy, and so I want to start with some first principles. The principles of equality and freedom. Central Job of democracy and government. is to. INSERVICE of those goals, protecting citizens from any group or any person wielding too much power from abuses of excessive private power from private governor Mench basically arising out of the corporate form Anti monopoly antitrust is a deep and powerful American tradition was at the heart of the American revolution. Think about the tea party protests the great anti monopolist of our country include ebd boys who saw. How monopoly power was used to crush lack political power after the civil war and Franklin Delano Roosevelt who is arguably the greatest trust buster this country's ever seen and nineteen forty to nine eighty. We lead the world anti monopoly using antitrust campaign finance laws, public utility regulation, labor laws, and other tools to ensure that no private company had too much power but since nineteen eighty, when Reagan, tour down. Anti monopoly laws and their spirits. Democrats, and Republicans alike have failed and instead embraced a policy of radical concentration and the result is the world we live in now.
Looking Through the Disparate Responses to COVID-19 in the US
"Want to begin putting this response to the virus in the context of what we've already talked about on the portal in particular the disc or distributed idea suppression complex introduced. An episode. Eighteen appears to be in full swing. So how do we know that this is happening? Well twitter and this is just as an example has now refined their terms of service to broaden their definition of harm itself to address in their words and I quote content that goes directly against guidance from authoritative sources of global and local public health information rather than reports. We will enforce this in close coordination with trusted partners including public health authorities and governments and continue to use and consult with information from those sources when reviewing content. Under this new guidance we will require people to remove tweets now of course the pandemic that sound sensible at least my ears in such a situation who wants marginal gadflies like I duNNo. Mike Serna the infamous Mench Small Bug Aka. Courtesy Arvind contradicting the mayor of New York City. Bill de Blasios or The Washington Post in time crying out for coordinated authoritative response. Well here's the awkward part many of the people who call this epidemic early incorrectly. Where the very marginal Internet personalities that the Legacy Media folks love to deride as trolls gadflies as for the mayor of New York City after certification mold buckhead correctly called for drastic action. Bill de Blasios wrote. I'm encouraging New Yorkers to go on with your lives in get out on the town despite coronavirus and that was an early March a sentiment that was echoed by the Washington Post that viewed concern over the virus as a kind of neurosis that had to be addressed. Psychologically in short the gated institutional narrative or Jin was not close to being the first to see. Cova is the giant threat requiring a planetary response. It was those outside the Jin that not only saw this early but proved that it was able early by many different individuals who generally seem to sit outside the institutional and respectable worlds. So just. Why was this well first of all? The portal has argued many times before that we have had an almost universally unworkable leadership class now in place for just under fifty years that it arose to disguise the end of the post war economic growth regime. This is a collection of people who have re factored the institutions that they've lead within our system specifically to evade the embedded growth obligations or egos. That were set in the previous era. And who rewarded each other? Generally for doing exactly the wrong things in terms of the public good with an end to mandatory retirement the same people have been promoted for borrowing against the future and playing games of Russian roulette with financial markets healthcare while self-dealing within the system that they were handed stewards for the generations to come serving a false god fake economic efficiency that reliably and deliberately fails to adequately incorporate actual economics like negative externalities von Neumann Morgenstern sub utility functions principal agent problems moral hazard etcetera etcetera are ubiquitous. Economists have hidden behind the mask of technocrats working for the public good while merely pretending to practice their own profession healthcare mandarins to regularly ignore the warnings. Coming out of their own literature. I mean heading over to Google scholar which readiness czar or hospital head could forget. Titles like mechanical ventilation in an airborne epidemic by Fula in two thousand and eight or preparing intensive care for the next pandemic influenza by Taylor Kane and Robert Fowler in two thousand nineteen. Were those back to back. Hits of Meltzer at all stockpiling ventilators for influenza pandemics and estimates of the demand for mechanical ventilation in the United States during an influenza pandemic in two thousand seventeen in two thousand fifteen respectively in short we got here not because we couldn't foresee this future in fact we extensively studied it. We got here because we decided to ignore the future that we knew was coming. The specific class of people that we had the helm of our institutions were constitutionally incapable of putting their foot down and asserting that we needed deeper reserves in order to handle what they called surge capacity. So do I know what's going on? I said during the section of our last episode still holds true this week my continuing discussions with a number of people. I respect deeply seems surprisingly inconclusive. To me even at this late date so my mind wanders to the second order question of why it would be so difficult to sketch straightforward narrative to guide us in fact Dr Peter at his most recent video evidence of some of this confusion where he shares that as a physician. He feels so spun around what he is hearing that even he is forced to think in political rather than medical or scientific terms to explain the situation to oversimplify slightly. There are three great risks with the CO virus. One of underreaction. One of overreaction. In one of inappropriate reaction the threatens an enormous body count from the virus severe respiratory and other damage to many of the recovered. The second threatens a worldwide depression which could well lead to armed clashes and even wars various sizes. The last leads to many of our efforts being wasted or even captured by profiteers at a time when we are demanded not too deeply question the coordinating authorities and oddly. We are being prepared to participate in both under and overreactions simultaneously. Just as many of us are worrying about allegations of financial assistance that are now valued in the trillions. I mean this is crazy at some level. No we are somehow discussing ill-conceived multi trillion dollar systems packages at the same time as we are being ready to go back to work while also hearing that. New York is now apocalyptic I mean that's pretty confusing. We are going to transfer vast amounts of wealth. So please know that everything will fine when you get back to work shortly. But in the meantime the borough of Queens is experiencing armageddon even by highschool dating standards. That's a lot of mixed and conflicting messages now. What could explain this odd state of affairs? I found myself compelled by very simple idea from his grip. I cannot easily escape. The ideas straightforward. What if our leadership is treating this as much as an accountability crisis as a medical one when it comes to their actions. I mean what if the issue over which we are being quarantined isn't actually the number of deaths trying to prevent but the type of deaths perhaps there is one special category of death then that our leaders are more afraid of than all others for reasons of accountability rather than simple loss of life in order to explore. This idea might help to make it somewhat. Concrete therefore imagine that you had drafted a blank tweets on twitter called New York Blue Death List for at least Myrlie well known accounts that you follow from New York state that eventually brought low by the Kovic virus and that initially has no other content. Of course it would start out blank but now imagine that every time one of these account owners dies of. Kovic you plan to add them to your soon to be growing list. That's pretty morbid. But Hey it's now. A pandemic after all oddly. These aren't even really the death that I'm talking about quite yet. Perhaps the first few are old people who have lived long and full lives but as your list begins to fill up there may come a first gruesome death it happened to vital younger person who desperately needed a ventilator or an ICU. Bed or a train MD or nurse to have a fighting chance. Let us call these triage death. If they result from a missing resource that could have and should have been stocked for just such emergencies. These losses are beginning to outline the class of death. That I believe me. Now be driving this difficult. Understand response from our political and medical leadership while deaths from the virus may be tragic. These specific triage deaths may be considered career ending deaths of accountability for medical scientific business and political leaders who specifically failed to heed warnings from the group studying our preparedness as such they may have mattered most in determining the shape of our current response as they are all death. The come from failing to implement copious previous work in identifying vulnerabilities meant to shape our disaster preparedness. These would be quite bad because they would involve people that we feel. We know but it could actually get much worse for our leaders than that if you were now to swap out the blue check requirement and exchange it instead for the most sympathetic person. You could imagine what happens when death swoops down on a young girl of eight named arena. Who needs a ventilator desperately but can't get one or perhaps the entire Gomez family is turned away from Queens Johar or made to wait for ICU. Beds that never materialized while there's still time to save three out of their four members. I mean what if it is these triage death which are actually closer to negligent homicide than mere viral losses. That are actually terrifying our leaders into Jakonen action rather than the total number of dead as they say. This hypothesis has the advantage of at least being consistent with the otherwise confusing and seemingly conflicting themes develop before burdens from our leaders who were caught having utterly failed in their mission to keep us prepared would have to be shifted onto our entire society as a whole think about it. The public would be asked for broad participation in something like flatten the curve and why to cover for the lack of the same. Icu beds masks. P P in ventilators that were called for in numerous academic papers over the last twenty years studying just such viral pandemic scenarios. I mean it's really quite close as the authorities now scramble at top speed to finally get the missing resources in place that should have been banked all along they would also simultaneously be preparing us to go back to work to risk regular viral rather than triage deaths. Just as soon as the shortfalls could be made up as there doesn't seem to be a highly credible plan to defeat the virus
Löwenmensch: The First Monster
"Back in twenty seventeen. We recorded an episode of stuff to believe my entitled the First Monster and again we ran it in this most recent October over but in the episode we discussed the lion man or the low in inch of which was this. This figure that resembled The was a a human with alliance head hybrid a hybrid being combining animal and human likeness into a single likeness. Yeah now this was This particular killer artifact the mench was discovered in nineteen thirty nine at a stone age cave site known as startled whole or stable cave at Holon Stein near Vogel heard in Germany but it would be another thirty years before anyone got a chance to examine these broken pieces of ivory due to the world wars but eventually thirty years later that's when German archaeologist Johan discovered that these two hundred fragments came together to form a thirty one centimeter centimeter or just over a foot long figure carbon fourteen dated to between thirty five and forty thousand years old. It had the body of a man in the head of the lion. In two thousand and three another lion man was discovered in southwestern Germany this was carbon dated to around the same time period and by by some estimates. Well you know first of all these are amazing just for no other reason. They're just they're just fascinating figures that they give some insight into what ancient people were doing what they were making but also seemed to be the oldest Examples of figurative art. We've seen the Venus of whole fells. Take the title before I think Is from thirty. Five thousand to forty thousand years ago discovered in two thousand eight and two thousand sixteen but while the the Venus is the the depiction of the Feminine Forum and the Law and minch is a human fused with the beast. Yeah and this is what we were drawing attention to the episode. The idea that this is the earliest. I example that we knew about of fantasy art. It is an imagined being yeah as stated by Clive Gamble and archaeologist at the University of Southampton UK UK is quoted in nature quote. They depict an animal world in a semi realistic way. It shows early man moving from his immediate world to an imaginative world. So let's just a brief breakdown of the Lowe and minch certainly go back and listen to that episode that we did if you want more on that topic. But here's the cool thing and in a imagine number of you caught this news already because it was covered a number of places they I even saw it featured on Stephen Colbert show but in December of two thousand nine hundred ninety eight new discovery every was made and it might just blow the lion man and Venus out of the water. This is so cool. Yeah so this story takes us to different. Corners of the world takes us to Sulawesi SC Indonesia one of the four greater sooner islands. And it's actually the world's eleventh largest island I read so we've known about Pleistocene settlements in the the area for quite some time in early Homo sapiens are known to have reached this area between sixty thousand forty five thousand years ago previous studies these from some of the the same archaeologist involved in in this particular fine which is the arch team out of Australia They've revealed prehistoric art and ornaments events. Dating Back Thirty thousand to twenty two thousand years ago in this area and Homo sapiens apparently made it here against some time prior to fifty thousand years ago. So here's how this new finding came about in two thousand seventeen spelunker named Ham Rula climbed into a previously uncharted chamber in Sulawesi. Let's see cave system known as Morose punk cap a limestone cave system in while he was performing a government survey of the case. And if you're wondering ring was Amrullah. His first name last name. Apparently a lot of people in Indonesia just go by one name yet. It's just Just the one name anyway. He he gets. He crawls through a narrow space into at this New Chamber and he discovers cave paintings in the cave paintings were subsequently examined and written about by Aubert at all in earliest hunting scene in prehistoric historic art published December twenty nineteen in nature and again. This is the same arch team out of Australia. Those involved in some previous studies in the area so as the title implies they used some dating technology uranium series dating on Cave Popcorn or mineral deposits that It hanging over some of the motifs in the scene and they were able to date this hunting seeing back to at least forty three thousand nine hundred years ago so that it is twenty thousand years older than the hunting scene on the walls of Francis Lescoe cavs and coming back to the low and mench. That's also four thousand years before the lion man and I realized we're talking about such kind of ironic that we're talking about such big periods of time and there's a large portions of human history that it can also make four thousand years not seem like a lot right which is which is bizarre but obviously four thousand years is a lot of time and to to set the record back. Four thousand years is amazing. So here's an important caveat though there's more work to do as they need to date not just the the work overall looking at the cave popcorn but each figure individually before we can be one hundred percent certain in all of this because there's ultimately the possibility that different portions Sion's of it have been added at different times. Yes now the main archaeologists requoted thing they don't think that's the case but yeah we certainly should date the different parts. I think the the parts that had been that have been dated so far are just the regular animals but the more interesting part. Let's get into that. So yes the overall it depicts what seemed to be individuals using spears against prey animals in a hunt and this would be an on its own with being amazing fine right it would. It would predate any hunting scene gene. We've seen before. But on top of this some of the hunters appear to be what the researchers refer to is theory th- ropes or animal human hybrids as much like the low and Mitch. Yeah some of the humans appear to have tales or snouts right so if this is correct if the Now again and the parts that have been dated already were overlapping. Just the animals that were being hunted buffalo type creatures and pigs. Yeah wild pigs and then a type of buffalo called an no which is also known as a midget buffalo so like a water buffalo except smaller okay And so I think they haven't dated the other figures like the the the theory and throw are the human animal hybrids Yet but it looks like they're probably from the same period we're just not certain about that. Yeah but but if so this would this would probably predate the low and mench making this the earliest evidence. We have of fantastical thinking of like magic thinking among among humans showing human animal hybrids like a human hunting buffalo with a bird's beak. Yeah very cool. Yeah and it's it's we get into it in that that episode about the first monster about what this means right like what what ultimately does it mean to have in your mind. A human with a beast's head on one hand it is imagining something that does not exist in the real world and but then on a deeper level it is taking what this means. What does a bird mean? What are the the ideas that that Just a mere symbol of a bird summons and our DEA two of a human being what happens when these This mix of symbols and meanings collide. What new ideas are born out of that collision absolutely so it? It basically shows that that people from this time period period of four thousand years earlier than we thought may have been dealing with this kind of complex thinking mashing up symbols ideas and concepts concepts even taking aching on a humanoid form. Becky Ferrara wrote an excellent piece on this for the New York Times and she points out in this that the researchers believe that these as may have been animal. Spirit helpers something that's commonly find his shamanistic beliefs so yeah there's a possibility that we're dealing with animism animism and shamanism
Should Election Day be a national holiday?
"Now i i think one election day should be off we've talked about that here it's a it's a good thing and mench i know this is gonna come as a shock but republicans vote to and they could use you know that's good for them to and it does make democracy better because he gives everybody the ability to not have to worry about how to go vote and go to work so i i don't know why this only works on one side is i mean i mean i know republicans who actually do so what does he talk some of them are veteran well they don't want the the demographics changing and there are more people of hispanic heritage and african american who are coming in and they don't like that they don't vote republican run scared from that if any day maybe we should change some of our messaging so that we can get more federal workers vote republican very tone deaf giving given the fact that federal workers haven't been paid for like you know over a month after the town but was it was terribly toned up but what was interesting to me was the voter turnout in the u._s. is among the lowest in the world because the united states is one of the few countries that holds elections on a worry day most countries hold them on a sunday in fact so why not perhaps do that that it's the only host jacob sober off a whole organization called why tuesday and it's because an eighteen forty five we traveled by horse and buggy and farmers needed a day to get the county seat data vote in a day to get back without interfering with three days so it had to do with being ali horse and buggy dated it'd be it'd be again i have to come in the car more to save him grab this is the definite when mitch mcconnell talks about having the power grab when he's the one who put merrick garland in there now out of sync and did not allow you killing dr over there joyce what i think about the clintons remember what he did i mean he didn't allow merrick garland to go through when obama was president he pushed that that's a that's a power grab not changing election day we're what's the reasoning is that there's other pork attached to this bill in one of the things attached this anti corruption bill would be that it would prevent members of congress from using taxpayer funds to settle sexual misconduct lawsuits there are other things attached to it which is why always against work attached to any bills whatsoever because people don't necessarily know what their voting for but i think if you go the average american in here and say hey look you're not gonna have to pay for a babysitter make it on a saturday or sunday make it a national holiday you know that i want people to be fine not to vote like i'm for australia's way of voting point that if you don't vote you're fine i'm forced defy fine fine also attached to the bill is that it will require presidential and vice presidential candidates produce ten years of tax returns oh i would like that well but but here's the but the truth of the matter is let's start with something everybody yeah agree on tuesday doesn't work it doesn't work people are spending we watch folks trying to get to work trying to vote kind of do all that so why not make it for everybody in democrats independents republicans everybody can vote on the same day i don't if we can start with that i bet we could get through all the chris quote this as you ever throw a party on a tuesday no no because nobody would ever come point their push for early voting now so everybody can vote early but you can't vote on a week day you can't you can't you have to stop no it's not gonna solve all the problems with it will solve one yeah and i'm all for one at a time if that's what it takes we have to do this one and i'm i'm you i'll do it
Stock market comeback faces big test with earnings season starting
"We start off with a make or break moment for this market. And that is right. We have to five hundred in the dangerous on right back levels. I was at its breaking point back into Szemberg after dramatic fall. And even more dramatic bounce back from the bottom. Ten percent move higher from the Christmas Eve Lowe's stocks make a Ron twenty six hundred once again, so the fed seemingly and check some progress on the trade war being made will the market make it out of the so-called danger zone down. Yeah. Well, listen, you know, you sit up kind of dramatic set up here. But he this Matthew. Ravic or viper. Even that, man. Okay. Fine. Smith on comedy six hundred level was really really important because from the October highs we had this decline. We got back down there. It's a level we've bounced had been technical support for a little bit and on December fourteenth when it broke it went straight down. So here we are right back there. One of the things I think is really important. I think you wanna look at a couple of the sectors that lead on the way down. We've been talking about Bank stocks in particular, the XL F. And then let's talk about the exceleye the tracks industrial stocks took to very cyclical groups here and really remember what was going on. There was a bit of a gross scare back then in December. So when you look at those two charts, the exceleye and the also approaching those breakdown levels here. So to me, I think if they get there, and they can't get above there and they fail then you continue to sell rallies. I think it's a tough spot to to press lows, but exceleye XL after really keys, the S and P five hundred has to get above twenty six hundred and stay there. It has to become support. Well, he's too close to missiles and switching to guns mouth. So bottom. Line here. Top gone. I got it. Smells like anyway. Bottom line. Here's I think the fed actually takes you out of the danger zone. If you believe the fed Mench were consistent with what pal gave us on Friday. And that's that's not predetermined to be robotic and foll- essentially a protocol rather than follow the data. And I think we've had reaffirmation that. We've all speculated very, well, you started at Mel talking about this guy that had to follow a script. Did you have to stick on courses as Powell learned about his messaging? But what I think we learned from the fed today's a couple things in Rosengren at some comments this morning. The market may be actually overstating the markets, the the economy and the weakness in the economy, and that's actually fed that to me might be ready to jump back into the fray, the most important things for me right now are the fact that Asia to me last night inflicted, and I think if ages starts to recover, and I'm not just talking about China 'cause I don't really care as much about the local markets there. But look at Korea, which is both an industrial export or and also the epicenter of a lot of the tech worries and look at the dollar, the dollar weakness the Dixie another weekday signaling. I think clear for crude which we talked about the top of the show. Oh and emerging markets, which are Neal the dollar to me is the key to this whole thing. Right. We had a very weak dollar today. Although I'm not convinced that the fed is out of the picture. My read of what the fed said is they want the ten year yield higher. They wanna steep yield curve.
