"Are you sure about that? Well, you know, let's put it this way, unless we're talking Area 51 and aliens and guess what? The UFO's coming out, you know, who's on the grassy Knoll, I get it, there may be some things, but I'm saying, you know how it works in these three letter agencies, things that you think are the absolute most secret thing. Nature has a way of finding out a lot of these secrets. All I'm saying is I find it intriguing that after all these years, some official piece of documentation has been surfaced to say, yep, this is what they did. And instead rely on people like you and Murph and other people, the piece all these things together. Right. I think once we get into the move into the lost clipper and guy starts revealing some of the clues that he's found throughout this long investigation, I mean, there's bits and pieces out there that really strongly suggest what was going on. Right. And I think that at the end of the day, the critical bits and pieces that we're looking for are the remains of the humans. If we find them in Micronesia, then that's to me the smoking gun because then that answers that they were on a day, they died believing they were on a ransom mission. 'cause they told their family that you find bodies on the island. Obviously, then the bodies didn't weren't in the ocean. That you would not have been able to really recover all of those that far out, right? So that means they would have been somebody had custody them, transported them to land and then buried them because their evidence of evidence. Yeah. Right. And that they were killed not by a weapon, but they were killed by poison because the eyewitness said there was no mark of death upon them. So if we find the remains, then we know that that part of the story is true that these guys actually did die, and that Macarthur, the story of Macarthur, seeing the Hawaii clipper intact in Japan in 1946 and that his two eyewitnesses next to him was admiral towers, who became the Pan

United Airlines Pilot Placed on Unpaid Leave After Being Granted Exemption From Vaccine Mandate
"I am going to be joined in this segment by captain sherry walker and captain Dave Morgan of airline employees for health freedom. They happen to be United Airlines pilots, and they are pretty good at what they do. 7 87 international 7 67, these guys are experts. They keep us safe. They make the skies friendly. They get us from point a to point B and now they are going to tell us their story about their experience with these vax mandates that have been spreading across the country. There is news today that osha has now at least temporarily sidelined this plan of vax mandates, pending circuit court, judgments that have fully put a stop to it, at least for the time being. So we're going to keep monitoring that. Dave Morgan, thank you so much for joining us, captain sherry walker. Thank you so much for joining us. Tell us a little bit about what you guys have been going through the floor is yours. I've got some tape, by the way, that we can play at some point in the segment of the CEO of United. I know you're not speaking on behalf of United here, but I do have, I think it's partner to what we're discussing. So I do want to get to that, but tell us what you've been going through. Tell us a little bit about your background. Are you guys getting paid right now? I went on unpaid leave a week ago on Friday. I'm a pilot for United Airlines. I was hired in continental airlines in 1998, so I've been here 23 and a half years. We've spent many years out in the island of Guam for Micronesia and three years ago, just before the pandemic, we moved from Guam to the great state of Arizona, and I'm on a fly 7 87 out of San Francisco. Pandemic came down the pipe and we pressed on. We are the front lines that we're willing to do whatever it took. What we are team of many, many people, and I'm just representing I'm a voice representing thousands who I wish also could have this opportunity to speak. But we work through this thing. And with a really can do cooperative spirit of let's get through this because I was also a pilot during 9 11. I remember that vividly. We worked through that. And then suddenly, on the back side of this, here comes this vaccine mandate. And those of us who pressed on and made the wheels turn airplanes fly, the people who were able to fly for point a to we were there to get them there. And all of a sudden, Scott Kirby says, we're not safe anymore. You're done. So as of last Friday, I've been placed on unpaid leave, and they've basically cut my cord. I have no insurance, no benefits. I can't retire. I have no access to anything. They have shut me down and to make it worse. I can't pass travel. I can't even jump seat on other airline jump seats. So I'm scrambling right now to see what I'm going to do with insurance. I have three boys, 12, 16 and

This past week which was so great about the black widow brigade and that particular alliance that's season and how that came together and we were talking about how in a lot of seasons people are always worried about well. The women's alliance are gonna is gonna come together. But it just so happened that it was this particular group of women each with their own unique set of superpowers. That really was what separated this particular women's alliance from others that Were not as successful. And i think that there are certainly parallels you could make With the cookout this season of if it is going to be successful. It's going to be because of the people that brought their individual talents to that group. So i thought that was a little bit of a fun thing to watch as a companion to big brother. Twenty-three right because like swap out dare gaff with like david. There's no way cookout would be happening. So yes i totally agree. You make me think of david.

"A little bit of a rule breaking place you know. I mean everything. Every game has rules and it's important for the rules to be adhered to. But i don't think that deep to be honest and you know they said themselves is like everybody did something and i think that's what nickel actually showed us so well right after he led them do their thing and you know go out at each other and when he finally got a chance to speak he just really put things in perspective and say what it what it has your role been and everyone has had a row in the same exact way and even though the outcomes with different. There's really nothing i think. Production could have done in terms of if they were going to strip japanese all that immunity does that mean. they were going to strip those who had. Brian gave a run meat of something as well. What were going to be the repercussion of everyone was in the wrong so i think for this one it was right for nico to pass and say yeah. We all played out hut. And we'll go to go especially when it comes to food because food is one of the resources of lab that everyone tries to preserve this as possible. There were similar things that we had done in offseason to even though it wasn't blown out of proportion to this in but i think everybody's always happy with everyone gets to eat something but no one is ever happy when it's only a few people one person eating without them. Yeah i do think like reward feeling is a bit of a like it's not cable is okay saying where production like maybe does encourage you and maybe technically not allowed but they kind of intuit because it encourages contested sneaky and entertaining and it's always been a part of the show you know way back when manila's bringing back like hof eat in men's in my cases like this is a part of the show and clearly liked the contestants who create the culture of the show at set a precedent when this something that's being done and it was done by everyone lost reward so to put it on chappie. You know it feels unfair and in terms of like the dolphins which is to tattle tales. Oh yeah i've i've i've watched i've watched bluish. I've actually just watched an episode where they talk about dobbins like the one piece of australian vernacular gathered right so the difference between dogging to teacher and doddington nico. The host is that nicole is pot of production. He's the host like you've been talking about this on cameras before the immediately challenged like niko knows like production doors. If this was a real problem they would have stripped him of it before the immunity challenge. And we wouldn't even be having this conversation so clearly there okay with it and you don't need to go tell nico guys because you're talking about her on camera. Something that exists in the show that they are completely aware of. You're not giving any new information. He hasn't appeasing at times. Yes so that's this is the thing is that i think this episode to police's point confirms a role that was pretty much like always kind of implicit in survivor across all franchises but hasn't been explicitly stated until this point which is to your point production kind of turning a blind eye to being like well. You know you're not supposed to take stuff but if you want a sneak it back that's fine and look maybe some people feel like i know there certainly has been some stuff coming out this week of like we'll no it was explicitly stated that chapters can't take food from the auction so he should have been punished because he broke a rule. Here's the thing. Survivor is not fair. In many many ways and survivor is also a tv show and no matter who is running the show. Chances are if it's going to produce a fun tv moment production is gonna let it slide even if it is a bit of a rule break as an example. Let's go back to one of the very first things. Russell hands does in his very first season. A rule is you're not allowed to destroy people's personal property. What does he do on night. One burns jas on socks now ordinarily. That could be something that might get. You kicked off the show because again it's a rule break but the show looks at it and it's like this is pretty funny like yeah. This'll this'll suck for j. sawn. But like. I think we're going to let this one slide and i think that's the thing is that while there are maybe hard and fast rules in survivor. There is a bit of wiggle room when it comes to okay whether it's benefiting. Everybody like we saw stealing the bri- bringing back for everyone or if it's for the sake of just like creating entertainment at not a huge detriment to anyone in particular. Then we'll let this happen. And i'm sure you know any survivor. Production and would not want to eject player or strip immunity from a player for a real break. So i think more often than not. You're there have been so many instances where things have happened right. There's rumors about like in survivor. Micronesia james and alexis stuck snuck into a production camp. Of course there's the whole like weasel whoo thing right that he was listening in on confessionals contestants break rules all the time and i hate to break into the dubbers out there but production does not want to punish these people unless the really backed into a corner to do. So i mean they especially. Don't care when it's something like he took his own suites moore award took bribes. Everyone compared to what people like literally break production to this is nothing so you do whatever you want why it takes the rise if she gets tribe riots. She gets voted off the riots rice. That sucks but he just stole from them like invented going ahead with strategy of book. They've been voted out. She would've taken the clinton would flynn and they would have had to deal with that. But that's part of the game in part of the entertainment of the tv product. And that's what makes it really interesting. And i do think you know i went on to win. A world podcast. A couple of weeks ago said tribal can be a little boring. What are we here for. It's all just you know this. This was really fun. This was great theater. Theater is usually like it's so entertaining and there was a lot of positive palesa. What did you make wireless feeling the rise. Chevy's larry larry ously replaces it with sand now.

What Does the Future of Money Look Like?
"Jordan. Heath rawlings is the big story. Michael doyle is a freelance reporter and journalist based in toronto who examined the future of money in canada for the globe in mail. Hi michael jordan. Can you start us off. Just because it's such a useful way to think about this. At least i found it useful by telling us the story of money on the island of yap certainly Yup is a tiny island. That is now part of micronesia in the south pacific and for hundreds of years. They had a very unusual form of currency and that was these gigantic limestone rocks and the bigger they were the more valuable they were and also of course the bigger they were the more difficult they were to actually physically exchange with each other so over time they Just left the rocks where they were and In order for them to figure out who owned which rock which note of currency for lack of better term. They created basically a form of a ledger. And in the form of an oral history of who owned each rock and how the rocks transacted from person to person on the island and so that's how they effectively did business. That's how they exchanged Goods and services for hundreds of years. Now tell me how that relates to wear. Our use of money is heading certainly It's actually a really great analogy. Because in one example it sort of captures a snapshot of what money has been for hundreds if not thousands of years since the since we came up with the idea of money however long ago that was And at the same time it also short sort of shows us where technology is going to change money in the near future so the question of what money is a really weird thing. it's kind of like a philosophical rabbit hole. You go down but at it. Sort of core form money is

That's how it works. I could just email him after. Say die-cast swore at one point but i don't remember exactly where then he'll have to listen to the whole show to find where that happened and like he'll probably be pissed at the end of that. That decaf didn't swear. And he wasn't the whole show but then he'll hear this part and wait the seemed self-defeating you only does wear to know doubt gas anyway.

I don't think it's something that they would pass up getting a third use of this mold out of you know especially since next year generation is supposed to be just a little bit of everything. There's there is still definitely be room for that and they need more those yes always and like it's it's another one deep. Cut things like the hasbro team likes at this point. 'cause you know. The origins of loud pedal are just kind of ridiculous. 'cause if i remember right there wasn't a diet. Clone black corvette. It was the year opean import of dia clone sold through. I think a finnish store it like the most obscure rare thing to kara knew about it made a masterpiece based off of it and gave her the name and now we have allowed. I want more of this. Yes i want more loud pedal in my life. But not when i'm driving. Please drive safely around me. And in general he's more loud pedal must be like need more cowbell right anyway I was about to start on. Something else is not in the show notes. And i don't remember now because you said cloud pedal dammit matt. What are we talking about before. I don't know you. You were closing your thoughts on road rage and jumped so our discord. Someone pointed out yesterday. I think Game stops website updated their pre orders for tracks and wing finger and scorpion hawk Indicating that they would be in stock on june eighteenth so that might be something to keep an eye on if you're anxious to give some weight three toys in now personally. I'm not intending to pay full price for scorpion hawk. I'll pick that up some later point. Maybe not like super thrilled with that. But for ring finger and tracks. Yeah we'll definitely Definitely keep that in mind. Cause june eighteenth is certainly better than the september. The amazon currently still says and probably later other places. I know pulses dates have been trending later than a lot of the other retailers. Of course big toy store in a small quantity of galvin tron. Last week Like three months ahead of their scheduled to so. There's no telling when some of this stuff could you start dropping out of nowhere. Right ox was found in arizona and a target like waves. Three is you know at the tipping point right now. So it's just a matter of like who blinks first. i guess. I don't forget chris as far as that tracks smell. We can always do a yellow tracks. I would also be about that. I i would hope they. Would you know build a character for it by which i mean. Come up with a unique name because we don't have like barbados or anything printed on the packaging anymore more so we don't get any characters anymore. We just get toys in colors. But yes a yellow tracked. I i would be about that. Would that be an alternators reference. Would yeah because hasbro's first version of tracks. I think came out and yellow. Yeah i think so. I believe they did. Subsequently release a blue tracks i think when they switched to the bubble packaging. Yes they to car a did their their biotech in blue. Because the metal in the figure would hold the it was something about. They couldn't get the blue right on the us version but the bottom tag version came out properly and then they went back and did it for the us. I believe that's.

"Oh gee and this is on team would would be that much of a deep cut quite. Possibly i mean if they're dipping in the shattered glass like you know. There's there's not much reason to not do like an updated box set. Basically now all we need is an inferno for them to integrity off of and then we'll be all set i've been saying since kingdom was announced. We're gonna get an inferno he's going to be called scavenger so they can keep that name and also it still is in line with an aunt character but he'll look just like an inferno. I think i think if they did this like they're doing with terrorists or and it goes out to the store exclusive. They're not gonna care if there's a name overlap 'cause we're getting grim walk in sky warp in these two packs and we've got a grim walk on store shelves at the same time that the completely different character. Yeah about saying if they wanted if they wanna use that if they wanna use that character to keep the scavenger name trademark says the haven't used scavenger sense on sets. I would bet you that. Release of the titan devastator. This year counts as re upping all the construct names. So i heard i mean hasbro lost the ability to use some names in the early two thousands because of disuse like. That's so i think having gone through that once and struggled to get allow those names back to where they could use them. I think probably a lot more careful about that. And they're more observant of making sure that they re up that stuff to whatever degree they need to hold onto it. They're not going to let you know like classic character. Names like that slip through your fingers again unless we get to a point where the transformers brand like takes huge dive. Which you know it will happen some day but for right now.

Karen if we could just start by reminding us of the mandate of the pacific islands forum. What is it. well. Joe generates a group of pacific nations eighteen pacific nations including australia and new zealand. That and it. It's a an association of of of the region. So it's It's a cooperative body. It's not a A governance body.

Interview With Lisa DeLuca, IBM
"I'd like you to meet lisa. Seacat deluca director of emerging solutions. In a i in a distinguished engineer at ibm if she has a way long title. But i'm not even gonna try to wait through but maybe show tell us. Basically she's innovating ibm's digital technologies but we're gonna find out exactly how she's doing this. Here's the insane part. Lisa holds five hundred patents have been issued and has another two hundred or so patent pending coma. God they even include patents related to electric vehicle charging in tracking the amount of time spent on your mobile phone. I don't know if. I wanna know that information but anyway. She's a proud member of the ibm women. Inventors community act. As i said the most prolific female inventor in ibm history with four children. I don't know we'll be here all day if i read all her credentials. So you'll just read about it. The show notes and we're gonna go on welcome. Greek cactus radio. we saw. thank you for joining us. Thanks for having me it welcome. You're welcome so i'm gonna jump right in. How do you come up with your ideas. Take us a little bit into your thinking process. All great ideas stem from a really good problem right. There's problems all around us. Beer people complaining all the time but the really good problems are the ones that you're hearing consistently especially when it's related or coming from a client need those problems in starting to think. How can i solve this in a way. That nobody else has thought of before removes. They've thought of it a little bit but we can take it a step further. That's where great ideas come from. So is it like you are wrestling with the client problem in you. Come up with another way to do it. Or is it like the proverbial woman who can't find the kind of baby food that she wants for her kids so she decides to try to make it in your kitchen and all of her friends ask for because they like it you know fell because we all definitely both the a little bit of both. I hear you right. It's i definitely have a lot of inventions. That are just my own personal needs as a mom as a human being as a consumer. That's playing with products and then also from my day job right. So you gave me a great introduction. But i oversee our weather business which includes aviation so. There's a lot of problems that are coming up from general business users and what we're doing so it's been really fun to have a little bit of both wow weather climate. Oh my god. There's so much we need. So i bet you are working with noah ash lab ozanich and atmospheric administration of the us government. I am sure our weather businesses somewhere they have the national weather service national weather service sends their data to the weather. Humans we see on tv and get mad out when they're wrong and it's your point about. Climate change is really hard nowadays to predict the weather. And that's one of the things that we're facing as you know you're you've seen so many times during the news just this year. How many hurricanes are coming through. And it's it's definitely been a fun challenge to think through how we can position our solution than our technologies to do better prediction. You know it's interesting Before we move on there's two interviews i did. You might wanna listen to allow. I've interviewed three hundred people's. Nah i think they're cool. They're all inventor. Type created the mentors but two of them are women who just won the macarthur genius award for coming up with cool new ways to measure climate impact. One was a different way to measure sea level rise and the other was scientific way to help leverage culture to change people's behavior so they take better care of their land for climate mitigation but getting to the human behavior part and leveraging culture to do it. She's in micronesia. She's an american. She's on assignment. Micronesia's really it's really great andrea dutton and stacey jupiter. Okay really cool. You just want macarthur. Genius mice search for your finance. So you're an inventor to me you're innovate right. So having defined innovation disruptive there's incremental juba definition. What he work from. Yes so for me. I get most excited about the idea of contributing to a larger society right and so all of our ideas when one person comes up with a great idea it allows all of us as humans to build off of it and come up with the next great thing so for me. It doesn't matter how small it is right. It doesn't all have to be life changing ideas. Small little things can eventually lead to those big
5 Minutes in Church History
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.
Money For the Rest of Us
Paper, Rocks or Digits: What Makes the Best Money?
"What makes the best money? I've been reading a number of books recently on money. Money the unauthorized biography by Felix Martin and money the true story of a made up thing by Jacob Goldstein. Both of these books have examples of different types of money that's been used in the past. Fascinating examples that you might not be aware of. and. We WanNa look at them and think about what is it? That makes something money. Money evolves and has evolved and will continue to evolve in what we used as money today might be very different decades from now. The first example is from the island of Yap. This is an island in the Western Pacific part of the Caroline Islands. It is now part of the Federated States of Micronesia. The people of the APP lift on the run over separated from other cultures for many many years. We'll in one, thousand, nine, three, an anthropologist who had also been trained as a medical doctor from new. England William Henry Furness went to Yep for two months and studied this people. And it wasn't a very advanced economy with. Three products, fish coconut and sea cucumbers, but they had something unique that they used for money. Furnace describes his money as large solid thick stone wheels ranging in diameter from a foot to twelve feet. Having the center a whole varying in size with the diameter of the stone wearing a poll may be inserted sufficiently large and strong to bear the weight and facilitate transportation. This was their money. It was called FAE. FBI are also it's called why are? The money was quarried in an island three hundred miles away babble up. And then it was transported on rafts towed behind canoes that had sales on them. Took a lot of effort to get this money. When furnace I saw it. He realized this really heavy and wrote when it takes four strong men to steal the price of a pig burglary cannot but prove a somewhat disheartening. These things were so big and heavy, you couldn't steal them. But then he observed as transactions took place that these stones were He wrote the noteworthy feature of this stone currency is that it is not necessary for its owner to reduce it to possession after concluding a bargain which evolves the price of a fe too large to be conveniently moved. Its new owner is quite content to accept the bare acknowledgement of ownership without so much as a mark to indicate the exchange, the coin remains undisturbed on the former owner's premises. In fact, there was one family furnace pointed out where the stone was lost from where it was quarried and had been several hundred feet at the bottom of the ocean for several generations. Yet the family that owned it everyone recognized that they still on that and that they were wealthy. Furnace wrote the purchasing power of that stone remains therefore as valid as if it were. Visibly, against the side of the owner's house and represents wealth as potentially as the horrid inactive gold of a miser in the middle, ages or as our silver dollar stacked in the Treasury in Washington which we never see or touch but trade with on the strength of a print certificate that there there. Is. The belief that it had value. Felix Martin wrote money was not the fe but the underlying system of credit accounts and clearing a which they help to keep track. The Fe would just tokens which these accounts were kept. They had an accounting system that tracked the trading of fish and sea cucumbers. And they would have outstanding balances and sometimes they will set up and maybe they would move the fe but often times they wouldn't. But there was the record that was there. Peter Bernstein in his book the power of Gold History of an obsession wrote the FE of Yep we're stores of. Wealth. Stores of wealth. Sit. Money moves it travels from one pocket to another. A store of wealth is mass. It was the transactions, the accounting record, and the trust between the participants that form their monetary system. The stones were a store of wealth, but we're just some tokens. The first documented use of money is from Sumer around thirty five, hundred BC. This is in southern, Mesopotamia. There were vast temple palace complexes there with thousands of crafts people farmers. Shepherds, bureaucrats. and. They wrote on clay tablets in cuneiform script and they wrote contracts evolving the workings of the temple debts owed rents. Effectively. It was money because it was an accounting record and you would have accounts receivable that you could trade. David Graber who recently passed away in his book debt. The first five thousand years wrote the value of a unit of currency is not the measure of the value of an object, but the measure of trust in other human beings.

"Now we explore ginger. There are over one thousand species of ginger plant that exist in the world today. But did you know that Ginger is Culture Gen? A cult agenda is a plant species or variety known only in cultivation which means that it has no wild ancestor we know that ginger originated from island. Southeast Asia and that it does not exist in its wild state and while it's most often called ginger root it is in fact not a route at all. It's what's called a rising home. Which is an underground stem of a plant? One of the groups that has the longest recorded history of utilizing. The ginger root is the Austronesian people or more accurately the Austronesian speaking peoples. Now they are a large group of various peoples in Taiwan Island Southeast Asia Micronesia Coastal New Guinea Island Melanesia Polynesia and Madagascar that speak the Austronesian languages. Ginger was carried with them in their voyages as canoe plants during the Austral Megyn expansion starting from around five thousand BC. They introduced it to the Pacific islands in prehistory long. Before any contact with other civilizations the rise homes and the leaves were used to flavour food or they were eaten directly. The leaves were also used to. We've maths aside from these uses. Ginger had religious significance among Austronesian being used in traditional medicine and for asking protection from spirits. It was also used in the blessing of Austronesian ships. In Indian cuisine. Ginger is a key ingredient. App has a role in traditional IRA basic medicine which is one of the world's oldest medicinal systems and remains one of India's traditional healthcare systems to this day.

To France to the Philippines people around the world have fallen in love with the scent taste and benefits of Ginger. The ginger in the citrus twist blend adds a fun spiciness. That makes this blend.

Climate catastrophes and now coronavirus, Pacific islands in the crosshairs
"The covert nineteen pandemic is wreaking havoc around the globe. The remoteness of the Pacific Islands has left people living there vulnerable in many different ways. You and resident coordinator Seneca Summer Sheena said in an interview with UN news that with borders an airport shutdown protection gear specialist personnel and lifesaving medical supplies have been unable to reach many areas in need and the crisis has only been heightened by the devastation inflicted by category five. Cyclone Herald which ripped through Vanuatu. Mr Samora Sheena overseas you and Operations Fiji Micronesia. The Salomon Islands Marshall Islands. Kiribati Palau Tonga. Vanuatu Nehru and Tuva. Lou acknowledged to Julia Dean. The difficulties in moving people and cargo has been impinging on the UN's ability to respond to the corona virus crisis. Will I think that you know? Some of the challenges are much the same as everywhere else in terms of making sure that the people are tested that people are safe social distancing action sinks in people follow the policies. Making sure that the equipment that's necessary for health workers are in place you know these are of course the challenges around the world with you're talking about New York City of Fiji but I think particularly challenging here in the Pacific as the remoteness of the locations it is also an sending that the number of people in the Pacific have different types of underlying health conditions. So if you actually have a massive outbreak with very concerned that this could have serious consequences for a significant segment of the population. I think the fact that the borders have been closed in many places and flights have stopped. Mix The issue of remoteness even more challenging so we are finding it difficult to move whether we're talking about personal protection equipment or other types of medical equipment and supplies are specialists and experts that we need in order to respond to this the movement of people in Congress very difficult at the moment. And what else is the UN doing to support the communities and governments of the UN has really come together this time and we have a range of things that we have responded. We've set up something old joint incident Management Team to look at the immediate health sector preparedness and Response Plans of countries. We received requests from the country's is you are aware. I covered ten countries in the Pacific. These requests come not only from those ten countries but from around the Pacific all of the country in the Pacific. And then we've prioritized. We look at the logistics capabilities in terms of the procuring and delivering what is being requested from us. And the the requests you know range of things from testing laboratories setting up testing laboratories to Mosques for health workers too Water and sanitation supplies etcetera at the same time we are acutely rather than multiple needs in multiple sectors whether we are talking about protecting women and children when we talk about places where cities have been locked down for weeks at a time. Or we're talking about food security right now because people are unable to work and don't have an income or you're talking about multiple disasters had a cycle of the number of countries and that compounds the crisis that Corbett nineteen is brought all the Pacific Tropical Cyclone Herald. I think is better. Four countries in as many days. Can you expand on what happens in a situation where you've got a health issue plus a natural disaster happening at the same time so on the one hand you could argue that up to a little bit better prepared here in the Pacific because we have to deal with a measles outbreak several months ago and some of these structures and mechanisms already in place to ensure that we fight the measles outbreak in fact the joint Incident Management Team? That I mentioned to you before was something that existed from that outbreak and was re purposed into dealing the covert nineteen similarly We have something in the Pacific humanitarian team functions. Here brings together all of the U. N. and other partners like the Red Cross and the NGOs are now we have government representatives and the regional organisations bilateral Austrailia New Zealand so those structures are in place and it really helped in some ways arguably to respond as will two TC herald which had an impact on four of the countries. All of them are in the Pacific quality which I support the Solomon Islands Tonga Fiji and Vanuatu by far based on preliminary analysis. Certain parts of Vanuatu are the worst hit followed by a couple of areas in Fiji Solomon Islands Tonga thankfully a not impacted significantly as went to sadly though twenty seven. People lost their lives in Solomon Islands. As a result of this cyclone-hit abort that Kept signs people washed off the boat and have one confirmed death in Fiji a six year old child. That was confirmed with just this morning. We're still waiting for the data from Anwar two areas of Vanuatu that We don't have any communication with in Pentecost Island. For instance the first teams have been going there yesterday and this morning to make detailed assessments but clearly we can see based on the aerial photography and other reports that some one hundred sixty thousand people in. Monroe ought to have been affected by this especially badly affected Guyland of Santo and And penticost lagoon. Bill is a second largest city in Vanuatu. In that's on the island of Center. We know that the infrastructure people's homes roofs blown off. We know that there has been some shortage of water. There's no electricity many pants. Also the that's the case in Fiji in terms of the deputy and we are very concerned about food security We think that if we don't get things sorted we will have people going hungry in a metro. Weeks the secretary-general Monster Reform Agenda in two thousand. Nineteen with this double crosses happening in areas of the Pacific Reform Agenda Aid situation. I can already see that happening in the past few weeks as we've been working together as one. Un system. I think it's an important change to how the UN has maybe functioned in some other places during times of disaster even in between disasters. So for instance if you you have all of the sectors coming together we know that this for instance Kobe. Nine hundred ninety s right now is something that is a health sector response or largely so. But it's not only you cannot possibly move your medical equipment and personnel from one place to another. If you don't have your logistics people work so whilst you have W at show and unit steph looking at the medical supplies you'll have. Wfp leading logistics identifying aircraft. And actually getting things for months the other you have other parts of the UN like U. N. O. P. S. O. U. N. D. P. who have existing long-term agreements with suppliers in China or North America or elsewhere who's agreements can be used to procure things that we need. You have like. Un Women the officer High Commissioner for Human Rights and others NGOs as well the very important issue of protection for children for women for people with disabilities when they're curfews when they're lockdowns as I mentioned before you have very important role being played by UNHCR IOM. We know that refugees and migrants are especially vulnerable at this time when borders of closed. And they don't have the coping mechanisms that perhaps People who are living in their homes half so these dishonor accept food security as I mentioned before is a big problem. It's not just a problem in the context of the cyclone because several countries that depend on tourism in the Pacific as you know some of those countries Fiji for instance Vanuatu more than forty percents of the GDP is based on tourists industry and people have no income. Now they have no income and as a result that have very little access to food. So there are agencies like F your and uplift be Undp looking at Making sure that cash transfers cash grants can take place now while of course trying to support the government's in dealing with economic impacts the medium-term and long-term economic impacts of this crisis Hannah seeing the reform saving lives. Yes indeed in fact I was not so long ago in Liberia and I was Impressed by how the UN First of all came together but importantly all of the other partners came together as well. There was something called the incident management team and we used to meet three times a week. You had countries like China and the US are the CDC sitting there with. The government was led by the government. So first of all you know these things work well when governments are able to coordinate all of the actors and would we've tried to do here is wherever governments have needed. A wanted our support in terms of accord initiative. We've done that. We support the government. The governments are still in the league but we support them. I think what I am seeing now in terms of covert nineteen in the Pacific as a repeat of what I saw in Liberia and sadly that was not always the case was also in some other countries during this Nami and other cyclones. But I do see that here. There is a commitment on the part of all of the agencies to actually come together in some sense you know having a different role for a resident coordinator has also made a difference speakers agencies. Feel that the President. Coordinator is a neutral entity at the same time is a person that the government knows Vagan Goto to without having to go to seventeen different agencies during crisis like this but it's also important to know that this collaboration between W A chore and the Resident Coordinator Is something quite unique. It's happening really for the first time and I. It seems to be working not only in the Pacific but everywhere around the world. And what is your call to actions? Nice listening but in the Pacific and globally. I believe that this crisis can only be dealt with if we work together. It is of course human nature when something like this happening on. One tends to think of how one CAN PROTECT. Oneself one's family perhaps wants community and by extension When country but at the end of the day we can't respond to crisis legs alone Whether we are an individual or family or community or country we need to help each other so as much as we need to ensure that the right protocols are in place that we do our best to keep ourselves and our loved one safe we must understand that the only way we can actually beat this is my reaching out and helping each as well and we cannot just circle the wagons and hope that this will pasta and we will be protected. We have to find ways. Safeway's creative ways using technology but if technology is not available sometime through physical movement but safely to get the expertise to get the and this applies to places where it's needed especially so that the most vulnerable populations are supported and helped during this terrible crisis.

Congratulations on being inducted into the Colorado Women's Hall of Fame Twenty Twenty industrialised. Thank you. It is a great honor. Our wasn't expecting it but I'm so happy about it and look forward to the induction ceremony and much ideas away. It's the day before my birthday. So what a great birthday present that is for me. That's a great birthday present for you. Congratulations that's really good. So you founded the Denver Urban Spectrum newspaper Nineteen eighty-seven tell us about the story and how the seeds were planted for the newspaper. You know it's funny that you would say how the seeds were planted. Because I always start that off when I talked to When I when people ask me that question and I refer to them I refer to it because my from my two partners that helped start the publication thirty four years ago. I was approached by Robert Stewart. Who actually in it? I think he was working in the computer systems and here approached me and said he was looking for I think he's looking for a graphic designer and I've always had a graphic design studio. Were worked in that worked in that field for many years and And I still do I still do as a matter of fact. I'm fortunate that I've been working on the publication in that area. Also as in addition to the publisher but I was doing freelance Moguls business cards stationery menu Annual reports and you know he asked around the community and several people say well he would be harassed anyway we met talked about the publication and I asked him I said well. Can you go and get Working on the business planning come back and see me and he said okay. So I don't know must have been three. Maybe six months went by and then I got another. I got another call from Ron. Still and he's a photo journalist. He's the timeframe and he wanted to start a publications like knock on my head again Publication keeps coming my way and so after I talked with him. I said well Ron. Let's go see Robert and see how business plan is going and called Robert and we met. I called them and actually he just said Oh. I forgot all about that publication. It's like shame on you so anyway we got together. The three of us get together and talk about it and We went out and I went to a printer in and found out that to print publication. It's going to be about eleven hundred in two thousand eleven hundred dollars to print publication small publication twelve pages and so we went out to get about eleven hundred and two dollars worth of advertising temperate. This announced the coverage is to get that first one going and so after that you know Ron still in A. He's Oh God that was too much work for me. So he said he wants to be a photo journalism. I think he went to the Indianapolis Star. So Robert Nigh continued it on but I always say that Robert Plant the seed then run feel came and he kind of water did and I'm I'm out of there so all I can say is the rest is history and then going on for thirty four years. Now that's Awesome. And and what was your drive. What was your. Why did you want to create this? What's interesting because I was a graphic designer My wife was just really kind of support the community. We didn't have Where there were a couple of other publications and you know there's a couple of two round but I think there was a need for the communities of Color and I think our perspective with just a little bit different we We actually Stirred the focus was on women who Latino Women African American Women Asian and native American but That was on women initially the first the first year actually the first year we did a story on. Oh Gosh you know. They were Dell a bad wound. She was a native American community. There was one who I don't even nephews women where they are. Today she was Asian We K- you the OH Gosh okay Florence Hernandez Komo's will also be the story on Cleo Parker Robinson worried cover stories And they were phenomenal. You know phenomenal people that we have the covers on but the first year. We did have a little glitch So well we had a little glitch. And there was a fire we There's a fire in our building and we lost a lot of material some of the original artwork. Kinda change the focus but the other thing too. You know a kind of evolved more to the African American community because the Asian community had you know they they. I'm sure they still do have a lot of publications in Hispanic Community A Lotta publications. Also so they kind of evolved to the African American community over the years. Okay awesome awesome and as you were dimming. So is this something that you dreamed about was something that just happened to unfold for you. I did not dream about it. You know and you're right. It consists is just actually something that unfolded for me. I was a graphic designer and I it just it just came to me. I I went to school in Omaha and I. I was a fine arts. Fine Arts majoring in finance and a minor in journalism. So I always feel that you God has a plan for everyone you know and it. Kinda it was Kinda destiny because I would agree with that. I can tell you that it was something that are meant to step into. And all of the signpost showed up for you to lead you in the right direction exactly and I feel that way with a lot of things people were saying. What are you you know you know when people are talking? I say I've got a I've got a little Assistant and She's she's from Micronesia. And I love her dearly like a granddaughter and she always says whatever plan that God has for me that's where she's going and so that's what I feel also I think there's a reason and a purpose for his plan on everyone's life and I feel like this is my year purpose because I do have a few more things that you know. I WANNA

Celeb Facialist Rene Rouleau on Your Skin Type
"Definitely the queen of skin types. there definitely are are some basics that people need to kind of look at so one is the concept of dry normal oily. So you know that's the first thing you need to look at and mainly Ainley. You need to know that information because that will drive. What kind of moisturizer that you need to use? How light or how heavy it is so if if you are somebody that gets shiny and your skin gets oily and greasy? That means that you already have oil in your skin. So you're gonNA use something more water-based if you're somebody that's Feeling really tight and gets flaky and doesn't look smooth to the touch. Chances Are you're going to require more oil. And so you can look for more of a cream or you know even skin oil or something like that so I think understanding drone Norman Oily is important but I think also it's one kind of side note of that is is that a lot of people. They use a lot of strong active ingredients in so if they still get breakouts but they feel dry. The thing that understand with breakouts is that you have oil underneath there somewhere who have truly dry skin bone-dry skin that don't have any oil at all? They're not going to break out. Because oil breeds bacteria bacteria leads to breakouts. So I'm always kind of educating people because people are like Gosh I'm so dry yet they have you know they still get a lot of acne skinny so it could be because they're using things that are too strong so they're getting the sensation of being dry but if there's breakouts there I always tell them there's oil in there somewhere so we don't Wanna ask things that are too heavy accent so I think so. I think the first thing is kind of trying to assess. If you're Dr Norman Oily and and again it's just more dryness says more if there's flaking and constant constant constant tightness and absolutely no oil whatsoever a normal skin tiber combination could be somebody. That's a little tease zone. If if your pores are low larger in the area than they are on the other areas of the face. That usually is an indicator that you're a little more combination In that skin canfield tight. But it's typically not going to be flaky. I mean obviously if you're using a prescription retinoids or something you know that would cause that but generally you can feel tight but it's not flaky and and then more oily as somebody that has enlarged pores all over the face and they're just shining greasy like by one o'clock in the afternoon they can be blotting their skin with blotting writing papers and they see a lot of oil on there but again that you know it's a lotion versus a cream sensitive. Skin is one of those tricky subjects x because the definition is different from anyone for from everyone. When someone says your skin really sensitive the first thing I said is tell me what that means to you? Oh right so to one person. They'll say if I use something really harsher strong. It will take my skin for which I'm always like. Well how about let's not use anything harsher. Oh sure strong okay But but then someone else will say if I use something too heavy will break me out. And then someone else will say everything I wash with sting's my skin I get read I get rashes easily right. So there's and then some other people might even have other descriptions of them but those are the three that I hear the most host so my definition of sensitive skin is more. They easily irritated the redness. The pinkies lead the Thing staying being easily as more of a moisture barrier issue. I don't really consider sensitive. Oh I can't use moisturizer that's too heavy because break out. Well then let's not how you use a moisturizer that's stuck in the break you out as an easy fix yeah yeah and but the problem with quote unquote sensitive skin care products out there. If it says for sensitive skin typically it means is that they just took out the synthetic fragrance or the synthetic dye but a lot of the sensitive skin care products. Don't necessarily actually try to calm the redness they'll take out the quote quote unquote irritants out of it. But if you have somebody that is you know. Easily irritated and read. The goal is to try to really like put the fire out com circulation. John Sedate the skin and a lot of sense of skincare products. I don't feel like necessarily do that. Because the goals were trying to improve the skin barrier and make the skin less sensitive over time so just avoiding dyes and fragrances. That's just not GonNa do that. Yeah sure sting so dehydrated hydrated and dry. Those are two different things too right correct. And that's I mean that's a huge one. I have a great blog post about it. But that's probably you know the biggest the hardest artist thing for people to understand because people always just say dry and And so I always say when someone says Oh. I'm really dry but then I see the breakout. Something like no can't be but I always say like does your skin ever get flaky because to me. That's truly the definition of dry. And then absolutely you know producing oil but the main difference is dry is lack lack of oil and dehydrate his lack water. So you can be oily dehydrated. But you can't be dry an oily so I think the I mean all skin types require acquire water but not all skin types require oil right so so typically again if somebody has breakouts they still produce oil but they feel tight than that's dehydration versus a somebody's you know bone-dry in there you know forty five plus and they have tiny pores that's going to be more of a drier skin type so if you're trying to assess your own skin type do you even put dehydration into that category at all or thus just a condition edition that you right. Yeah I mean the whole thing is any good skin care routine should always be hydrating your now if somebody comes to me you if we have a customer or client that has been using really harsh things and they kind of have destroyed their moisture barrier than we might need to load up on a few extra things just to repair their skinning it back to healthy state the concept of the moisture barrier which. I'm sure you guys understand but let me explain it for your listeners. So your skin has this moisture barrier and think of it as like bricks Rixon a house and when the barrier is damaged from harsh products. Genetics Rose Asia where the skin is hot and heat kind of naturally naturally can deplete the moisture barrier or the moisture within the skin over exposure leading to many asses. Things like that so in these bricks like the mortar in between the bricks starts to loosen. And you get these little invisible cracks in the skin. When you get these invisible cracks in the skin moisture can escape easier and then irritants and can get an easier so sometimes when people like are like yeah products are stinging my skin lately and normally that never happens well? It's because when when you have those cracks products especially water-based ones hit the nerve endings. Faster and you get a stinging sensation so I have a great blog. Post about this as well but it's all about kind of sealing feeling up those invisible cracks so that moisture stays in and then irritants you know they're not irritating the skin as much and that's probably the biggest thing that I've probably I seen in the past I'd say like four years or something as people's moisture barrier for people who are oily are feeling dry and it's because we have access to so many more active ingredients everybody's big into the liquid acetone owning right now you know they're using the. The Acetone is twice a day. And you know then. They're using sonic cleansing brushes. And then there are you know which is a is an expulsion in itself and then they're Micronesia Dermot rolling at home poking holes in their faces is in. So there's just a lot of people and we've kinda fallen into a culture of like if it doesn't burn or sting it's not working and so people relate the feeling something with doing something right and so and then you know you can buy all. These chemical peels on Amazon. And so I just think that's like a big conversation. I'm having a lot with people as having people back off. A lot of things is there in their effort to control their skin do more. You know often die micromanaging. They're like that boss. It's not like doing too much like if you actually back off. Yeah I'll be more productive.

The Nice Guys on Business Podcast
Knowing When You Need a Break
"Joe so tell me a little about your story. I'm really interested in here in a little of what you do how you've done on it and when you realize something like you know and I know your your particular market is a huge Micronesia of what you do so maybe when did you realize that Micronesian Johnnie Shing was an essential component for success and maybe tie that into what your story is and how your story is put together yeah absolutely so I really took a traditional route and when you you have a nice guys podcast. I fit that perfectly. I'm an Eagle Scout. I did things right. I went to college and got a degree in psychology and comparative religion got degrees than in counseling and psychology followed kind of the traditional script of higher education and started working at nonprofits and residential facilities Lydia for angry kids kids that were kicked out of their houses around probation lip things on fire stole cars things like that and I loved that work as like grew I realized that I was headed towards burnout inside kept kind of leveling up within that traditional route supervisor positions and eventually landed at a community college college when I was there at that community college I launched a side private practice really just a pay off student loan debt making a little bit more per hour can renting from some other other counselors and thinking you know if I make a couple of thousand dollars a year working some nights and weekends then maybe Nobel at a little extra money to the bank but but as I was doing that I really realized that therapists in particular and helping professionals that have big hearts oftentimes are never taught anything about business and that was part of my story I had gone to Grad school all this time and money in learning how to be a good clinician but never learned how to build a website how to market myself and have the idea of if you're good at it people just come and it just wasn't true and so I started reading a couple business books just to learn some of the basics and realized that so many the people had already done this before but hadn't applied directly to private practice and so without really doing a lot of market research said to myself. I'm going to just start blogging about what I'm learning about about marketing and business and I started this website practice of the practice dot com with the advantages share and Colin with people and say hey does anybody know that there's actual full business people that have done really cool in amazing things and done ethically and made money and they didn't sell their soul to the devil and through that that gained Kennison popular because no one was doing it kind of on that level and then in two thousand thirteen launched a podcast and that time I actually did some market research to to find out where there were immense gaps in at that time there's only one podcast for counselors it was put out by the American Counseling Association and it had been dormant for six months so day one. I was number one podcast for counselors price nice and it's taken off since there I left that job at the college about five years ago I actually sold my counseling group practice last June so now exclusively doing consulting for people that own private practices and that's expanded beyond just counting now it's massage therapists chiropractors some dentists Jason and even a random online taekwondo course once in a while so what's interesting about it is and and and I appreciate you sharing a little bit of your your history what's interesting about it is one one of the areas that I keep seeing over and over and over again and a lot of the work that you that you focus on is something like this. The scheduling idea you know the idea of of helping with is that time management is that scheduling this is like a big issue for people that are in private practices managing their own time see. I would actually zoom out a little bit and hopefully if you have a job that you like or maybe even love you WanNa do it all the time and you're thinking about it. You go around in. You're listening to a podcast or it's the weekend and you're out on a date with your partner and you say oh my gosh. What if I did this in the business. Hopefully the kind of lives that were building is really exciting and so if that's the case that also means that you're probably not giving yourself enough of a break and you're the brain research and neuro science actually really supports this that we need a very clear breaks away from the work that we do so that we can speed up and be more effective in the time the rectory spending on the business and so for me. I could work on my business all the time because I just love. I love it. It's so exciting and I it's genuinely impacting people's lives but if I'm GonNa do that effectively. I have to set some very clear boundaries around my schedule and so a couple of summers years ago I didn't experiment where took Fridays off to see. If that would actually impact my schedule impact my bottom line and helped me. You know impact people differently by the end of it. I found that I made more money. I'd worked fewer hours. I got a lot more and so I kept going that experiment passed and I got that Fridays off going then the next summer's summers. This was two three summers ago. I decided I was GonNa try the same thing but for Mondays and so could I do a three day work week and so I did that and same sort of thing got more done and then in the last year I reigned in from working until five to work till three thirty as I drop off the girls at school. Start my day around nine. Am and I'm done by three thirty most days and and so by doing that. It's forced me to then set some boundaries around time but then there's always things that are left over that I could work on second either. Just let those go or can out source close to other people or find systems or technology that can get it done outside of my own time so that ends up helping me level up way way different than if I just kept working harder what's amazing about it and your timing could not be any more perfect with the recording of today's episode. I've now been out of my office for probably about the last two weeks two and a half weeks and as of the recording of this and I've been running probably seven days a week while I'm out of town meeting seven days a week focused on and focused on business and the issue is that when I'm back home in a in Los Angeles I'm East Coast for last couple of weeks. when I'm back home in Los Angeles Agilis I do the three day workweek also Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday keep my Monday and Friday schedules open. I take the weekends off for a really really decompressing and those those days that I take off. Mondays and Fridays have been the most productive days for me personally and also have discovered as you are saying so. I guess I'm providing evidence to what you're saying is true not even realizing we're. GonNa talk about this today in the last two weeks two and a half weeks. I've I felt bad. I've I've eaten worse. I've not I don't feel like I've accomplished as much as I can and I'm like I feel like I'm on that hamster on the wheel going backwards. I haven't even seen outside in the last has two weeks. It feels like I get in my car and I might go get gas for the car. I might run errands of the bank. Come back and start doing work again. This is is killing me and I keep saying to my girlfriend Jay back in Los Angeles. I'm like I cannot wait to get home so I can pick up my three day workweek again. So how fitting it is to have you on the show today at but I got a bigger question though and I am sorry I didn't mean to you know go around it to make this point. But why is that so what is the neuroscience behind behind that because what you're saying is one hundred percent accurate and this is where you've kind of focused a lot of your career yes so the neuroscience is really clear on this one study that really stands out to me is a University of Illinois study and what they did is they college students and they brought them into a computer lab like a solo room and they give them a super boring task so they said here's your four digit number so it was seven one four eight and whenever that number comes up on the screen over the next hour hit the space based bar and there's going to be all these other four digit numbers that come out so very very boring task and so what usually would happen is what's called vigilance detriment vigilance how well we pay attention to something detriment meaning breaking down over talent overtime and so what they saw at the beginning of this study they would be noticing there for digit number and over time they would would miss it and miss it and miss it more and so people couldn't pay attention for that full length of time now. They did a control group that was a control group the other group but they did is at the one third good mark. They interrupted their time and they said hold on. We put you on the wrong computer. Can you just go have a seat in the lobby for a minute. It's just GONNA take us to get the setups. They had a one minute break. They didn't have any access to cell phones. There is magazines but it just got up mood for a minute and then went back and sat down. They found that there was no vigilant detriment with that group. They did the same thing at the two-thirds March march they to one minute breaks in that hour period of time.
