"So dan. i want you to help. Explain exactly how wild this year has been for sports cards with an example and that example that sticks out to me and shocks me every time i consider it. Is this record setting. Mike trout card. Can you tell me a little bit about the card itself. So it's a it's a two thousand nine bowman chrome super factor dan. Hey ducky is a writer and researcher for espn and a card collector. Himself it's got autograph on a autograph on grated. Basically there are three companies professionals Authenticator beckett s g c they grade. How perfect on a scale of one to ten a. Carter's so this might trump card is a nine so it's pretty. It's pretty close to perfect but the autograph is greeted at ten. So it's really close to perfect card can awesome. It's a trap route card also on top of that. It's a one of one so there is only one of these in existence yet. It's so interesting because mike trout in public is like a semi anonymous celebrity like a lot of fans casual fans and sports. Even don't really know him. But this card this one of one card with the perfect autograph. What did actually go for went for nine. hundred million. A new record has been set for the most valuable baseball card in history. Somebody paid three point. Nine million dollars for this mike trout rookie card. I know that when joe maddon was confronted with the information that he had a player who's card solta that much giving like. How much does the mona lisa goes for. Wow i'm into art. That puts him right up there with the mona. lisa's self. For what what is anything by a davinci or wow that is. That's that's pretty. That's pretty phenomenal. And it's actually. It's like yeah. I mean that's disappear question. And what was the previous record holder in terms of the most valuable card that had ever been sold at auction. The previous holy grail. Was you know the the honus wagner keys who six said turn of the century the twentieth century like early nineteen hundreds heart on. It's such a lower behind it. That's not happening with mike trump there. There's no incredible backstory to have his card exists. It's it's modern. It's not easy to obtain but it's not it's not like tobacco card that was pulled from from production really what happened to wagner was once thought is that wagner didn't like that he was being used his likeness is being used to sell tobacco the kids so he objected a pulled the card from production and that was that the other less known school of thought is that wagner he wouldn't be compensated for his likeness so he objected because he wouldn't be paid and the facts the truth which is a i like this story better it would be the like the earliest flexing of brand autonomy. It is remarkable what you say though the difference between his honus wagner card which does like looking at it. I'm looking at it right now on my screen. It's like this historical american artifacts that reminds me of like a daguerreotype from like the civil war or something it looks important and ancient and the trout card. The fact that this object can be worth more than any other thing that came before in modern times and the guy who sold this. Mike trout card dan for this terrifyingly large amount is a man named ken golden. So tell me a little bit more about him. What's the business that guy runs. Golden is ken. Golden golden auctions diammonium. Sins loan out nike sneaker. How much does that they work can in your eyes to me. It's definitely a six-figure iconic piece it is the most famous pair of sneakers in the world. Then he remains arguably the most renowned auction house for remember billion sports
"mona lisa" Discussed on Jo's Art History Podcast
"The second point i would mention news. That noah days of the value of lisa is probably estimated around several billion euros. Okay rain so it's just impossible for people just do in buying it and it's also forbidden friends to sell it. There was some discussion at some point. Brian sale when the lisa to pay some french debt. No yes they did but because she's the masterpiece in some yet she's an icon of france. None of nikon. Yeah no i. I i will send when i caught absolutely shish as an icon. She's incredible ended so as it by law that she's not allowed to be sold. You think that's really clever. I do think as part of the french museums collection collection. So it's just part of the french museum okay. Good fucked and put your wallets away. The fact i would mention is that melissa still has people working for her own everyday at least six people working for her security. She has ruined security team yet. The one in the room okay. Also video security end all things around it while there you are not only Proper iconic status the nfl. You have working for you and your painting fourth okay. Lisa has grown may blocks it is it is the fact that pushed me to rightly article between. I discovered that it was like incredible. She has run mail books. People can ride to her so she received love letters so many times she received wedding questions and questions. I don't yes. Oh she's she receives proposals yet. Proposals love letters. I personally and this is. This is one of the first fox at ever learned about. The mona lisa is that she had a post her own. Postbox on Blew my mind i mean. I've never personally felt the need to write to me to a painting Maybe we just haven't met the right one and another interesting fact is that melissa's face has no hair next year. So this is something. I didn't realize until i read that spot in his truth and by that you mean of course she has here on her head but she has no eyelashes. She has no eyebrows on galway. Look at it because you're going to be like hi. It's something that you don't notice once you see it. You can't unsee it another fact. They are not one that plenty throughout the world. Oh okay and if you go and have luke you can find really similar painting in madrid in no way in baltimore maryland. You're say also on the army touch museum in russia really. If you observe those paintings are really really similar. So they've never. They've never been attributed to leonardo da vinci They are attributed to his studio. Your chaos. it's just really interesting to see the the several version of mona lisa and the last but nutley. The music convey in rennes has version of manila lisa naked. No there's a naked version of You don't really see abreast or anything like that but it is a drawing so we don't know if it's preparation before l. k. and a hair as And covering her motor state asked me but say philly. I know really here we go. Oh wow and they think as it is attributed to leonardo. i'm so anyone that's at is essentially. Just mona i mean. Her face is very different than when she has a problem with. That is so it's might be just a preparer three dwelling on radio case Why they're notching feminine. Kaz has really strong harm. Yeah we don't know if it's an gene version of monalisa or just another person on the painting that right it has been named the naked wail centuries it. That was your last fun. Fought i to have some fun. Fox and conspiracy theory which i'm going to share with you because it's history and i love a fun fact if you follow my instagram. I love posting. Do post a sculpture and a painting. And then i also post a fun fact 'cause elephant so my fun fact leads very nicely from your last one and is a conspiracy that the mona lisa is actually a portrait of leonardo davinci drug. Yes we don't know because it also could be one of his assistant to we don't know vo that set anjem online. These amazing sort of overlaps is a very famous pin so drawing Of lear nargile and be very cleverly mattered them on top of each other. Which of course can manipulate endure. Anything on photoshop nowadays and But i would go and have a look at it at tip shoe in the. Oh it could be so. That's maybe the very first depiction within our history of a man in drag. So you are. That's my fun fact. The second is that it is not in its original which might not say surprising but there's been conservation work done to it on the free and that is currently it's been has been it's free since nineteen o nine bought conservation work has been done. And it's been several frames over its lifetime and it's nineteen eleven to nineteen eleven wail because of of the While you in so yeah so so. Several frames bought its edges have also been trimmed at least once in its life so the paintings ages have been trimmed at least once to fetter for free so there. You are cerebral frames on. It's also been trams. Bought the ducey that none of the layers of paint have been cut into just of excess board and my final fund fat which is actually a huge conspiracy theory on. There's a really excellent episode of this or a podcast called Where dave into this and we were detail than what we're gonna just do now but at a legal linked to that in the show notes his way. Oh that is believed that the mona lisa mona who reeks and thirty thousand three hundred thousand visitors a day. Actually a fake weird. What do you think of this as a french. National does make you few aid can be true really hoax. I know he don't. They might strange parts picking now. It would be really surprising to be true. Yeah because they just spending so much time. Just checking the painting all of the time they. They moved it in the museum a few months ago. Sorry because they were redoing the room and they moved it at that time. They've done checks to see if everything was fine and it would be really weird for them not to realize it's a fake one yet while there's another conspiracy theory that the it's the louvre. That decided after it was stolen that it was so precious and so there's to actually so it was one one is after it was stolen in nineteen eleven. I returned in nineteen thirteen. They though actually this is really precious. Hamlets copy on will keep the one locked away Second time when these rumors started to sell flare up the kupa copy was way and it was saint a during what were to. Obviously the nazis where advancing on france. And what we was. It was a of a worldwide fang. Where museums on churches clear there so precious belongings and it was a charge for example stained glass windows were removed and they were all put into storage invokes on castles. That were not in nevada. The front front yet exactly. And this is wade. They decided that that will be conspiracy theory as the one point the saints to an infantry registered volts that everything was gonna be Ten on the nazis invaded on to the loop which the debt they would be to track down where moon awards so the idea was the self scotty turtle and a different. So that classic decoy move. I'm which is just so interesting and from one painting at just the the history. This is what i love about our history as you can see a painting and think that's all there is to know us as a person with the about grind and she's famous because she's Fm going on this unbelievable huge tail that stretches centuries and as always so interesting even to modern day standards as she just keeps Discovering inflammation with her. Let's forget the kardashians guys original ghetto. Here we go. Latest latest trend about her was to publish. how healthy or not she was. American doctors realized that she was really sick. That they've not thought about it. 'cause varnish because She looked really yellow. She's not really so is that why thought she was saying so. They thought she had a problem with rid of fuel Thyroid yet young. And they mention all her program from painting and because if s king was yellowish she realistic or it's just sun damage because she's oh yes those really sunny she might help above a ton. Anyway i think that is a perfect place to leave and hope. Is you guys thanking seal yet. Thank you so much for being so generous with your time on your knowledge. I'm being so enthusiastic. And speaking about mona lisa or logicon leisure loudly. Yes i knew a new debt before you go. And where can people at finance this article every bit more. Because you on a lovely bloke as well yeah. I i have a an art blog. Name la swelled hijack or swing inspired by my favorite painting On this on. I try to publish as regularly as i can. Various subject on on works be stoical. It could be just focusing on work year artists. I'll leave linked to that in the show notes below. And as you've probably guessed celia as french so the the blog is range. But don't let that stop. Google translate as an incredible resource and actually when few articles. Earning holiday arden from the time pair fate. And also if you want to practice your french and your history click away onto you. Spoke thunk you. So much pena amazing even amusing. Thank you have the end of another episode of the jews are test report cast. I would just like to take this opportunity again to thanks for being so passionate and generous in both her tame. Shooting colonel on this incredible piece which i hope we have learned a little something to i. Definitely what can we do. We more knowledgeable history of his painting injuring as well as a little bit more. But all live as where during the compensation. We discussed the fate of the thief of the mona lisa.

"You may be surprised to hear that as completely steeped in history on for one small painting. It certainly has more than one interesting story. Attached to the history of this piece as one of leonardo davinci's greatest works and of course people louvre in paris every single day to see. That's incredible work. If you've been looking enough to travel to paris and see the work for yourself then you'll be fully aware that.
BTS #35 Excerpt: What is the Endocannabinoidome? w/ Vincenzo Di Marzo, PhD
"Absolutely. And for those listening that maybe don't have such a technical technical background on cannabinoids science. How would you describe the concept of the Endo cannabinoid Dome to somebody? Okay. So basically, you know with the word. Oh now we make new words containing the the the prefix the suffix off to identify very large system. So we have the Janome with the metabolism. We have the proteome and so on and so forth. So the Endo the endocannabinoid Ang Ang came in a way from you mentioned before the the study that roughly mechoulam in which we collaborating collaborated on the Entourage effect. So basically what we perceived is that in what we were measuring. In fact when we were measuring endocannabinoids is that this these two molecules and under minded to a g were accompanied by dog Plethora of other compounds and this compounds this metabolites were chemically and biochemically similar meaning that you know, an undermined into a Jeep belongs to you know, mm different families of metabolites. And these are the Ennis. I'll at the moment and the and the monocyte whistles some of which were already known. In fact, even one of two thousand kids, but even longer than that before the end of cannabinoids were discovered. So the nobody knew really how these molecules were acting so Rafi in a vegetative way that this is really is his main feature is creativity and Imagination thought about this. These are accompanying molecules that are there too practical to make make the two big actors look even more important than they are so it's an Entourage or you know, when politicians go around and they take with them a lot of birth. Of the accompanying people and that that's certainly part of the of the picture but that then we started realizing that these compounds in fact do have a molecules do have targets of their own. So the endocannabinoid if you wish is is a kind of evolution of the of the Entourage effect. Molecules like the NSA little minds or the Mona Lisa started being investigated receptors were being found and and this created of course exciting but also complications because you know, the pharmacologists ended the drug developers were the therapeutic drug developers were we're thinking okay, we can we can manipulate wage levels of the end of since they are so strongly involved in pathology. We can manipulate the levels of the endocannabinoids of an undermined and 2G in order to make more of these compounds where they're needed or to reduce the amount their amount where they're produced in an excessive that manner so you can do that by manipulating the the degradation of the biosynthesis of endocannabinoids, but then when it was found that and we found we and many others that and under might has the same biochemical Pathways as other in a salad all mines which have different receptors from the cannabinoid. Just this created a strong complication. We cannot really manipulate the levels of an endermite in this way without manipulating the levels of the other previously known as entering compounds but having an identity and and in the mechanism of action of independent from the endocannabinoids of their own so they can have been a dome is basically the the the bigger System including Napoleon undermine and 2G and their main receptors which are simply one CB2 but also bought some of the other receptors foreign under my tend to agree because these are two very promiscuous molecules unlike THC. This is one major difference from between between the endocannabinoids and the plants and and happy now it's dead or at least between between the endocannabinoid and THC and then it was found that in fact, even the biosynthesis and degradation of of these 2 khong Will not be only mediated by one or two enzymes there was a redundancy of biosynthetic and degrading enzymes and and sometimes it ingredient X will not degrade enzymes because they were simply converting an undermined and 2 g into molecules which had different receptors. And this is you know, this is this may seem strange but not two people like like me off at the bioactive lipids all their life, you know, all bye-bye activities are transformed into something different and come from something different with the different biological a month or so, and then there is the containers of an under my dental legited what we call the previously the Entourage compound which have their own receptors, even though they share with the endocannabinoid the same battle synthetical Pathways. And then finally there were other molecules which have different biochemical dead. Pathways as the end of cannabinoids better nevertheless, they're not congeneres. They're not like cousins not they're not like brothers and sisters but their cousins so you have a tennis I'll amide. And in fact when we collaborated with the and with with the with the other groups, we we found that in fact particularly with the group of my coworker the late my coworker. We we found that many many compound many amino acids could make a might with fatty acids and this could create an almost incredible number of new combinations between the 10 or 15 fatty acids and 20 amino acids. So just just imagine all the permutations and and so this compounds actually exist as as the group of other brands show as also recently investigated and and so it's really we're talking now about a huge number of chemical mediators. So the endocannabinoid open their containers their analogues, which may or may have not different similar biochemical Pathways normally have different receptors dead. We we talking about the several other targets that undermined into the G have Beyond City 162. We're talking about other enzymes. So we're talking about something something about more than a 250 chemical mediators more than fifty enzymes and and receptors and some of these receptors were actually known previously like the wage channels or the or the P bars and and and the interesting thing is that you know, of course we when the end of conversation became so big Then the next question was okay. THC is the only out of 100 and more a plan cannot be known that interact with the endocannabinoid system. What about maybe maybe if you don't look only at the end of can access them, but we look at the expanded n. Can have this Summit this and maybe the other cannabinoids with interact with the endocannabinoid home, even though they don't in fact with the entertainment system. This is true to a large

"Come on. that. I'm always talk about this but you know that Bob Newhart sketch where he playing psychologist a psychiatrist and his clients come in and they describe like I wash my hands fifty thousand times a day in Baba, and then he's always like we'll stop doing that. and. I really like the essence of therapy. That anymore. Symbol. Like I go to a therapist and she's like well, what's stopping you from like? Every day and I'm like fuck I don't know. Will then just do it. Okay. But that's true. That's what I said in my Ted talk was there's a reason why Nike slogan has been just do it for however long it's just the truth. It just do it hard to do it. It's so hard to do it. We can't toward to figure it out but but it is hilarious to say just can we stop with the soups? Nobody likes. They don't even taste good right I. Yeah. That's really funny. All right. Let's move on. Let me think what I want to tell you about How about an update on the Mona? Lisa that's Oh. Yes I'll. Okay. So. They're always studying that thing because she's so famous and there's so much interest in it. So recent study of the Mona Lisa conducted over the course of fifteen years I don't know what takes them. So fucking long but it doesn't change. Their threat there since. They detected earlier marks in charcoal on the canvas. And the marks in the hand hairlines show artists, Leonardo Davinci, shifted her pose over the course of the painting to make her look more directly at the viewer. And they said that the process of figuring that out was accomplished with a multi spectral camera that can detect reflected light. You know this crazy raid or whatever to observe the sketch underlying the famous painting and the analysis also detected a hairpin which was dropped from the final work. Oh so she like had her hair did like, no let's make her like beach. On. My Guy. So he took a little creative liberty in his. And don't you wonder like archer why he was like maybe he did the Coco Chanel thing where he remarked. My God that is such. A frigging funny joke. That is so good. He really did know too much. Yeah because This is the Baroque period. Get that at a year. Because Coco. Chanel said when you're going to leave the house, you should look in the mirror and remove one piece of jewelry before you go like you have to edit. So may be Davinci was like you know what? That's too much. She's a simple lady. She doesn't be casual Mona Yeah, you're overdoing it. Oh, you've over accessorize my dear. To less is more Mona less is more I mean he should have given her a little help those browse or lack thereof. Help. Wrong with. Any. My God. Let me see you see. WanNa Lisa. She doesn't have eyebrows. I. Mean they're right a lot. No, she doesn't. You're right. No wonder. She looks mysterious right? We know this. We've talked about the the I row thing I forgot well, we talked about in general, but I didn't think we talked about it with Mona right just about eyebrows. Yeah. wow people. Still aren't maybe did take maybe they didn't need all fifteen years or four years or whatever. Right, who are we judge Dean I mean, it is annoying though how? Scholarship depends on funding and funding depends on public interest, and so people are so obsessed with Mona Lisa that now we're just sort of like studying her because it's like possible to get funding for it. This is my theory anyway, rather than other things that are less publicly appreciated, but maybe would be more consequential. Yeah and it's. I don't even know why these paintings become. So it's gotta be just the mass that that it's more Exposure and familiarity than the actual quality of the work I'm not oh, my God by no means of my saying the Mona Lisa's not quality. Leonardo Vinci is an genius I'm just saying it's interesting that. You know we just get fixated. I think it's the best work by Leonardo. Da. Vinci. Yeah. I would agree it's it's evidence of how something could just catch on and become a thing. Yeah and there's not always you can't always figure out why I did read though that. There's a new painting they found in Australia that somebody bought for sixty bucks. They think was is van Gogh and I love those story me to all the ultimate was that antiques roadshow. Yeah. I always loved episode of will and Grace. If you haven't seen that one definitely watch that it's the best one. Go just go. Yeah because everyone wants to think that when they go to a flea market or an antique store whatever that GonNa find some sort of like the declaration of independence hidden behind. paining rare right and so it's so fun when it actually happened. And I do like hearing how the experts try to figure out if it is authentic and they do all this work with like brush stroke style and stuff that I can't even understand but. Had I was I can't remember what it was. It was documentary I was watching our net flicks where they were looking at carbon dating and they look at the levels of radiation or the levels of certain. Elements. On the painting in the concentration of it from after.

European Road Tripping In 1975 with Marshall & Debbie Hockett
"Hello Travel, nerds and welcome to the extra packing peanuts travel podcast the show that teaches you how to travel more while spending less. Host Travis Sherry and joining me today or to people who in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, five, hopped on a plane to Europe. Grabbed the VW named Banana spent a year exploring the continent and then wrote a book about it forty five years later Marshal and Debbie, Hawk it from tripping nine hundred and seventy-five dot com marshland. Debbie thanks for joining me. Huge. Welcome. Thanks for having us and we are going to get into the adventure that you had in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, five. This is a travel podcast after all, we're GONNA, talk about all your travels and how things have changed but to me, the most impressive part isn't the trip itself but that you wrote a book about it, forty five years later because so many people say I want to write a book I WANNA, write a book I want to write a book and I'll get eventually and you know they never do. So you guys are part of a very small minority that actually did it. So let's let's start with that. Tell us. How the book finally got written and why did it why we find like we got we got to do this. We just have to finish this life goal. Well the book was written all the time, all those years they happened to be A book that was given to us by one of our friends, it was a blank page book. And it was a hardback on the spine of the book was written tripping nine, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy five and our friend presented it to us before we laughed. Oh look. Just happened as. The original. So he wrote a journal every almost every day the woman who gave us this we're about A. Week from going on this trip for a year and she with noticed us. She gave us this book and she said. You've got to be completely truthful. You got be truthful and I want to be the first person who reaches thing. her name Melissa Marian Marcus. I said sure. I agree to those terms. Traveling for a year. When we got back. She was the first person reading. She loved. Unfortunately. Mary died of cancer. So. Anyhow I was busy having my own law firm. Makes CETERA. Sat on the shelf. This on behind. So it sat there for a long time a long time. We resumed our careers. Marshall had a really good a domestic family law practice in San Diego. And then he was appointed by governor, to be a judge, you weren't just sitting around not doing anything. Let's put it that way. Right you guys now. Retirement. We already had our retirement. That's right. That's right. You're taking it early. So so you go through this and the book sits on the shelf and sitting there and singer take us then to the decision to actually. Make into a published book that it is. Now, whose idea was it? was there any hesitation to doing it or did you think now after all these years you know we have to? That was known for traveling because just like you are. Trailing I was talking to court Turco and she was saying Gosh all the places you've been your write a book. Some clicked in my mind I said you know I think Arne. So. So I. Needed to. Do. Prologue. epilogue. Their tell her he made a sense of easy. It was not easy. Now hold on here. Yeah. Just just type it up epilogue prologue but. was, it was it word for word from the Journal or did you have to go back and you know add some different language or or make it read more like a book like I corrected some spelling? Errors. There were many corrections at all. It's it's pretty much word for word. Wow. Wow what and so you mentioned that you guys are now you're known for traveling. That wasn't the only trip that you talk all that kind of stuff. What do you see? As some of the biggest differences between like when you travel and then. Now or recently and back then because that must have been a pretty neat trip down memory lane. Going back through the book, typing it up. But then saying, well, this could never happen nowadays or this wouldn't happen nowadays because of this this and this gives us some of the biggest differences. The number of tourists. It's crazy now. So way less tourist. Then then there are now have you have you noticed that like just across Europe or would you say it's kind of a worldwide phenomenon now at this point like it's just so much more accessible for let's say regular everyday people to get a plane ticket to go see a place that they've always dreamed of seeing. That's what I would say. Yes. And since more people have traveled and written books. About it I think people wanted to travel more you can't touch stone. Stonehenge. They don't allow that you guys now. You can't see. The. Mona. Lisa, they're just eighty thousand lots of tourists near behind them across the room at A. Painting that is now the size of. Came

Why not I'm already sent to Google and facebook might as well give China look. Look see my boring life. Drive to the studio drive home drive to the studio drive home. That's it. Don't go anywhere. Don't do anything. If that excites you president she hadn't. have at it. It's actually really fun. It's probably the most engaging fun creative social site out there. I think it's awesome. Funny stuff. it just well done just really well done, and of course, the president wants to shut it down he sending very mixed signals so. It's really unclear first of all whether he could I guess he could. Could issue an executive order and then then. We'll see in court. because. There's no precedent. For that. Even Chinese companies have First Amendment Rights. TIKTOK? Scared They they've promised now they do all the things that make the White House ten thousand US jobs. We have a US CEO and finally last week they started negotiating with Microsoft to by the American part of it. Then the president said, now I don't want American company to buy it I just WanNa, shut it down. said that late Friday. So. Microsoft's said I hoped. Make up your mind. Meanwhile TIKTOK is filling up with memes saying, heck. No, we won't go that kind of thing. I think it's quite enjoyable and completely harmless. Completely harmless. You know. Any APP. You put on your phone, you should know this. You should know this your phone is the perfect spied vice. It already is and I don't care. You say, Oh, I'm used an apple I don't care apple android.

I'm cool. Jason. Bourne he's driving around and then some woman gets in trouble and screaming, help me help me and he says hop in the car. What's the first thing he does? Before drives, the woman to safety he takes her phony breaks it in half throws it out the window that doesn't good by the way just a tip. Under nothing. Just pick it up put it back together. But importantly, it's not the Bragan half that matters although it's quite satisfying especially in the old days those phones with hinges man they broke nice. Boom. Show off your muscles met Damon I'm strong I can break a phone and half throw it out the window. That's the most important thing because once it's out the window, it's no longer a homing device, a microphone and a camera in the car. That's what you're carrying around. You're carrying a beautiful little computer. That's always connected to the Internet. Beaming beginning broadcasting your location? Always, not just GPS mind you. The Bluetooth in there, there's something called Beacons Bluetooth beacons, apple put them in their first and android. So we gotta have those two and the whole idea. I. Don't know if anybody's. I don't think anybody's using whole ideas you go into a gap. You Walk into the gap store and the beacon on your iphone says Hey Leo's here he wears ex ex l point them in the right direction and little thing pops up that says, Hey, welcome to the gap fifty percent off if you turn left now. That was the idea beginning some museums use them. You know you're standing in front of the Mona Lisa. Yes. It's small, very small, surprisingly small. That's how was painted. No, it's not a fake. Don't touch it. That kind of thing. So. That's doing that Blit Bluetooth. Here's a fun. Here's a fun thing to do. Turn on Your Bluetooth Pairing I've done this.

Jerry's iphone all of those listed because they're sitting there going hey hey, over here, all the time. Then, there's the GPS Oh, and then it's got a microphone actually most of the modern funds have more than one. They have many microphones so they can be really really accurate. been. Really, hear every word you're saying when you try to get Syria to do something she goes I don't know what you're talking about. But boy, she heard you she heard you loud and clear because he got Mike Refunds in that thing. And then there's a camera. My case not just one, there's one, two, three, four. Or cameras not to mention depth sensing accelerometers a compass. This phone is designed to be and it's incredibly useful because of it the perfect homing device that's why that's why Jason Bourne throws it out the window. So we're carrying that around now, who has access to all that great information. Everybody. When you put an APP on your phone, what's the first thing says? It says it has a few things. Can I send you notifications? That's mostly it right. Can I use location if it's a map why not? So you say, yes. Yes. Yes. Now, that APP is just sitting there. It doesn't ask a lot of the things. It does affect. It's funny because. Apple's about to release in a month or two the next version of their iphone operating system I o West Fourteen. And the whole world up in arms. Because Iowa's fourteen adds new things. New Privacy protections like? Here's one the AD industry doesn't like too much. Hey. Right when you install the APP hey, is it okay if I use the apple advertiser ide- to identify you. Know.

Apple says, yes see that's what you get. We tried we apple by the way. Don't take apples like the the angel here because they wanted to do an ad business, they had a thing called i. adds it would do exactly. That's that's why they had the. Apple advertiser I id.

"Come back to daily bread. Deepak Chopra these weeks. We have been uncovering hidden dimensions of life. I just wanted to remind you that. This whole daily bad series on secrets is actually drawn from my book. The book of Secret. So if you feel inclined you might want to get the book as well to reinforce your in descending this week we reach the core of our exploration this is that everything is pure essence so pure awareness pure consciousness. Essence is the ultimate mystery because it manages to do three things all at once. It conceives everything in existence. Imagine anything in existence I imagine a rainbow imagine sunset. Imagine the face of your mother or the sound of voice. Imagine listening to John Lennon. Imagine the song itself. How does it start you start? With the conception and intention an conception awareness modifies itself is the concept it turns wattage has imagined into reality. So you imagine creating a great Sculpture What Did he looks at the stone piece of rock a marble piece of marble and imagines David and that's how he starts. What is imagination is turned into reality? Any great piece of art starts like that. The Mona Lisa Michelangelo's Beautiful Sculpture Does but even scientific discoveries Einstein imagined that he was writing on the beam of light from there can the Tiriac relatively so imagination is stunned into reality and then it enters that reality and keeps it alive so essence our consciousness or awareness has conceived constructed imagined governed and then it becomes what we call reality because awareness is embedded in what it has imagined saved simply put I exist. I am an I create I exist. I am aware 'cause I am is the beginning of awareness and then from there on I conceive construct imagine govern and create these The three qualities I exist. I'm aware I create frequently referred to in Sanskrit Nanda South is truth of existence. This awareness on under the joy that comes from unlimited creativity

Apple and Google's coronavirus contract tracing APIs, explained
"Apple and Google have created a they call it an API An interface to their the Bluetooth Ellie in their most recent phones android and Ios doesn't work in all phones but it works on you know enough funds. They've created a What they believe is a privacy forward way of contact tracing. This is an issue as we start to emerge from our quarantine. We're GONNA WANNA know. Somebody's sick who they ran into. And this system is quite clever. Quite a clever system. And you'd expect that some of the most clever engineers in technology working on it from apple and Google they They came up with something that Will ship out to most phones. Maybe we already have. I think we might already have it. They said the middle of the month and then in some few months down the road. They're going to do applications but what they what. They were hoping that health officials in various countries would take advantage of this. Germany wanted to I ap France wants to France said but but But you are. You are getting away because you don't let us Takes the information of Fun Apple? Said you can use the Bluetooth. Eli's kind of cool because you know how you says pair it. Here's a six digit number. All that security stuff which by the way is not very secure but that's a conversation for another show Bluetooth L. E. Didn't even do that. It just says hi. I'm here where are you? Oh Hi nice to meet you. And the original use of it was something called beginning was for advertising. It walk into a gap and the Levi's table was over here over here. Hi Leo. I've got some Levi's on sale in your size which would be disconcerting. All with that pop up right on your phone would know you would know your size. All that they. Nobody took this up by the way museums. A few museums because you get next to the Mona. Lisa says you are standing in front of the Mona Lisa. Yes it is rather small. Isn't it and so that was you know museums use it but it didn't really take off. They announced this years ago. Well now Now it does take off. It makes sense because as you walk through your life out of quarantine out in the world every time you get within somebody reaches somebody else's phone it sends you a little token not associate with their personality. Not who they are not their name address phone number just a little token the changes every ten minutes and you'll collect those throughout the day and if at any time you test positive. The healthcare worker gives you a little. Qr Code scanning to the phone. The phone then notifies everybody. We're in contact with over the last whatever number of days so very clever system without giving up privacy right doesn't say who you are doesn't say who they are. It just knows
"mona lisa" Discussed on Absurd Hypotheticals
"It is a canon so it's gone so we got that The Cooler one he made. What's in some places called a machine gun? I'm going to slow the role on that one a little bit so the be Roll No. We're not Chris. I just like interrupting your answer. Everyone does this is referred to as the thirty thirty three barreled Oregon Because the the barrels on organ pipes and basically it was like these three rows of eleven barrels mounted on a rotating like triangular. Prism the idea being you could fire the first row. While you're firing that really could be loading the second row the already fire could be cooling down in the third row you could be your reloading secret like the line. Yeah exactly it's not. I'M NOT GONNA call a machine gun because it really is just once again. A fancy multi-barrel cannon. It's a gun machine machine. We'll go with that. It sounds cooler it does. It does sound cool. Yeah give it to a monkey though nothing. They can't markets. We went over this. I mean the BS were pretty capable. Panelists again give us guns. The BS could find it because they can smoke on powder but they couldn't they have no they couldn't just no animals can operate this machine. Okay it's in his notes. I'm going to say that. In fact check it but so sort of the plan here is basically just like cosmic attraction. I think you're going to shoot at the big triangle. Pyramid thing or glass pyramid thing. Because that's like a big distraction. I don't know what we'll go with that. That's fine just direct. I like this direct approach. Yeah to the highest than me. Walking guns blazing pretty much well and then we also so. I assume that at some point we're going to be you know taking fire from much more advanced weapons threes on here. Draw the fire. So fortunately eventually made robots not like actual robots but but he called them robots or Ottoman or somethin'. The the more well known what I think is like a suit of armor that he made like a series of poison cables end like walk and I grew guy walks. Sit Down raise adviser and wave and people were actually able to back in two thousand and to reconstruct from his plans and it worked correctly which is pretty amazing. Davinci's really cool. It sounds like he's making a lot of things that he's calling things into your disagreeing with so I mean it one heated necessarily call them. These things people have called them. These things online. I don't entirely agree with it. But also it was like the sixteenth century. So cut them some slack. He did a pretty good job. All Things considered I think it's one of the people reporting. It had a flair for the dramatic. That's a lot of it. Yeah the amount tiles reading something about the at least being transported and people being like she sat alone in the container for weeks in the dark and damp. And it's like it's a painting bright. He also made a mechanical lion There was actually. It was commissioned by Pope Leo the tenth for King Francois The I basically just to make him laugh by like walking out to impose flowers as feet actually referring to this one twenty nineteen and it also worked which is pretty awesome finally for like big attraction purposes. He also made a tank can lead a bit there. It was basically like a rounds like sort of domed tank with light cannons Oscar platforms like firing direction the place where like slanted like deflect fire Okay powered by eight men inside of it who would turn crank suspend the wheels and apparently I love this note. He suggested that that he thought of using the horses to power for. He dismissed it because he feared the animals have become too unpredictable in the confines of the tank. Which is kind of hilarious. That if you're going to have if you have to die or dots the way to go right. It didn't have a major flaw though in the plans. Which was that the powering cranks when opted erection? So wouldn't actually move which so people actually so. This is one of those things where you know. You're in a good spot like as figure who will think this people think he actually did this intentionally. Because he didn't want to ever get made because he despite make him like design lots of weapons and ship he was at his heart like a pacifist so he thought that he intentionally made it not work so people wouldn't make it or if they did make it wouldn't work. Okay here's my theory. Maybe the guy fucked up like one time by putting drawing a thing backwards like I think. That's maybe more likely that that you know at some point he like you know flipped his gears literally. And you know we'll we'll probably more likely but regardless either doesn't actually work it will certainly draw attention. Which is what we need to actually get in the Mona Lisa now. Full disclosure. Don't actually have a plan to do that part. So you're you're so far as to shoot the glass so all right. Here's my here's my rationale. I think the Earth GonNa Make. I'M GONNA grab it but I don't have enough information to actually say how that part goes. I'm GonNa say you do that and I'm GonNa talk about getting out. We're going to go with that so there. Let's say you have the painting that you have distracted all the guards they are dealing with your army of weird walking suits of armor and lions and your tank. That's just kind of circle. How do you get out? We'll eventually also made flying machines. There's two sort of famous once he made. There's the aerial screw which basically like a big screw shaped that like. The idea was like four four men would stand on a platform and rotate it to move the screw with would cause the air to moved out and left. It took a helicopter but definitely doesn't work. Yeah it's the helicopter that totally doesn't work. That's the best way to explain it. Modern Science decided I. There's no way whenever I have worked that one nonstarter there was at one point so I made a flying machine like Number when it was a couple of centuries later with a steam engine with the same design that did work but with like manpower it would never take off. It's just not going to happen. He also made an Orniphoptera which was it was basically a it was plain like or maybe glider like with big almost bat wing shaped wings That that flaps up and down for propulsion and it it could have flown. It was in the air but probably could not have flown like it probably could not be human power to get off the ground. It could not get enough power that way to actually take off Well I might be able to sustain flight so I'm going to say that we either launch one of those start flapping or just put it sort of engine on the airedale. Screw and do that one. Probably go to the airless. Screw because they've got some more like distinctive look of the flapping right. I'm just imagining the while you coyote thing it's it's pretty much that but giant and also kind of hang glider also bet distinctive. Look what you're going for at the end of a high. Yes for important reasons for going to get to right now. Marcus Okay so you get in your area screw in your flying away and as we discussed these are not particularly great flying machines silent because actually even with your engine wherever on it. It's not actually going to work all that well to get you out of there so I think you make a big show of it. Not Working as her flying over the river seine which is conveniently right next to the Lou and as it collapses in mid air and people jump out of it using parachutes designed eventually. He did a lot of the Mona Lisa. Which you have already carefully put a waterproof container dropped out into the river where you have people in Super Scuba Gear also designed by Leonardo Vinci waiting to grab it and get away with it. Did lead scuba suit where this one actually does okay. It also incorporate a pallet for the diver to urinate in. He thought of everything. This actually is basically like at a massive your head and then it had basically had tubes going up like a cork diving bell that floated to let air N so it wasn't like like a literal contained tank it more of like a glorified snorkel but you know what it's going to work for our purposes once I had a what do Paean a pouch. That's all the information I have. I can't answer no more questions. But like what program you try to solve by giving the diver a pissed. I couldn't figure that one out either man. I really don't know like you're in water. Just pissed I mean. It's he was an interesting man I don't. He had lots of ideas. Not all of were good. I told you about the cannon with three barrels right like in this Canon Pouch on the actually incorporates added all his all of his inventions contained way. Let you urinate a very very key component. For him you'd be. You'd be amazed absorbent the Mona Lisa. Why did he gets me out? Would you basically just elected to use worst technology that you could do everything in your highest could be done more efficiently if you just did this? Davinci theme yes. This is accurate. I do not have a way to refute this however hey what about would you rather right? Ben Would you rather join a cult or start your own religion? So where important question? Where does the line between cult and religion and yeah? So here's here's the here's the differences would you rather? Would you rather join a cult and under say cult? As in a very clearly nonsensical bonkers crazy religion with a bunch of rituals in hoods and if people found out your this. Colt you be embarrassed by it. So like anything scientology are weirder yes ontological okay and then start your own religion. You can do what you want but you have to kind of commit to right so you can't make like a five. Can't make a webpage and just be like Oh yeah Benz God dot Com. And pretend and like I did it. I created my religion. It's got three pages of religious text which is just been written. Four hundred eighty six times in size thirteen filed. You find my old. Yossef's page Marcus. Is it a given that people are GonNa follow your religion or not so you have to bid is not a given that you have to put some effort into it? Okay all right. So it's really maybe you can't stop trying to beat make your religion until you get like five hundred followers and times like a lot of a lot of followers. Actually so I will say so. I don't know why I just thought of this but but it may not be that hard because I do know there was college where there was like a weird bathroom that got like Walden and people found and they made a shrine. Dane if you know in it and they got like constant offerings to it so if you can make a shrine Dane veto and college campus and get a decent attraction you could probably get to five hundred people relatively easily if you found something you know niche and you you have five hundred. Like retweets effectively have five hundred subscribers today to veto. That's fair starting to religion is basically just writing him fiction. That people believe right as well. That's a loaded statement But if you want to bow down to that shore so I J. R. Token could be religion. I mean isn't that literally how scientology started right so I must say you can't say you can't do it. It just yeah like would you rather be the person rank going who has joined a cult unless you have to go to? Colt means you can't just blow off and be like that's not a part of my life anymore You gotta go to the cult meetings or would you rather be the person who's like star their own religion and like now everybody below tag be like hey can i. Can I tell you the the good the good vibes of The Ben Religion where we have ice actually the religious. I'm going to go up there. You said that a little too fast for my comfort. You know what guys talk about something so so really. A boils down too lazy and crazy or having a very very annoying hobby right. That's really the sort of the dividing. Line here yeah yeah. Let's just like anything to if you join a you're going to be you. Don't get to set the agenda. If you say your religion you cut control you'd ever. Yeah you're in charge if you make your religion figure tax benefits to right. Oh yeah not many for joining the call. I think there are certainly offers volume religion especially if it gets big enough to for the government to care about I give you a tax break Starting to pile up towards religion. The more we talk about this. I don't like the idea that things are out of my hand if I joined the cult and I don't disagree with them if I disagree with them then well to be fair you pick the cult. You Join C..

"mona lisa" Discussed on Stuff You Should Know
"All right chuck. I thought that break would never come right so It's funny to think as famous as the Mona Lisa is but she was fairly neglected by the world until the mid nineteenth century and even then just like a small little group of French art critics finally discovered. You know this Davinci painting and we're like this is a masterpiece. This is an amazing work of renaissance art. I we haven't noticed all these few hundred years but it's amazing they they didn't really tell the rest of the world and people like the Mona Lisa was fine but it wasn't until she was stolen off of the wall in the Leuven. Nineteen eleven that the world really really set up in in took notice. It's very much like that. Cinderella Song you don't know what you got until it's gone. That happened with the Mona Lisa to think they wrote that about the Mona Lisa. Right probably Yeah August twenty first. Nineteen eleven there were three Handyman that Just kind of went out the side door with the Mona Lisa It took twenty six and this is kind of evidence that she wasn't that big deal yet. It's a whole twenty six hours before anyone. Even I noticed she was gone and Whereas today you know there would be alarm bells? Oh my second it was removed. Yeah But it was is put in the papers and all of a sudden it kind of ran away in the press. The Lou shut down for a week and everyone from Pablo Picasso to J. P. Morgan renamed mm does a potential suspects. Yeah they th. They thought J. P. Morgan was financing people. The steel steel like art works for him. Amazing Yeah and actually. It's funny that raises other thing. Chuck quick there's There are accusations against wealthy Chinese people Like who are funding art heists to repatriate Chinese art. Oh interesting there's like a whole string of high around the world that are just Ancient ancient Chinese works of art. And they think that some people in China financing it it was a G. Q.. Article called the great Chinese Art Heist. Wow well I certainly believe even repatriation to a certain degree. But I don't know if he should go to that length so anyway the newspapers get it out. Lou Shuts Down People. We're coming to the museum to see what was known as the mark of shame that Empty you know. Non Cigarette Stained Square on the wall. And everyone I went and went. Is that how big it is that little non dusty square yeah and then it's a full twenty eight months For this thing to finally reappear appear with an attempted resale from Vincenzo pedagogy and the owner of the art gallery that was being offered. This painting said Yeah. This is the Mona Lisa. You know what I'm GonNa make sure you get a good reward for this. Just stick around and stay right there. I'm going to go and the other mimic a quick phone call to the reward center right and make sure you get your rewards. Yes Lord right there reward and then homer Simpson just stood in place and waited for the Italian Policy I come up. And he He got busted and he got eight months in prison for this. It was a pretty big art heist but he was in Florence trying to sell it so he'd stolen from the Louvre in Paris and his defense was Napoleon stole this from us And I was repatriating reading it myself and I think he actually kind of got you know eight months as an exactly slap on the wrist but it's also not a A ridiculous sentence either for for what he got so or for what he did so I think that actually helped that defense worked. Do you know if you read it out. His two buddies. I don't know and I don't know if it would of mattered. Because he was the one that lived with it in the false bottom of his steamer trunk in his apartment for two years before he he tried to sell it. So I don't know if it would help at all man. I wish I had a false bottom steamer trunk those. It'd be pretty handy. Oh I thought you meant like a bottom then just a false bottom. Trump seems false. Bottom girls they make the rocking world. Go round kind of false bottom. Stop it can. We say that it's not the seventies any longer. I think we're okay. Okay you got anything else. Nothing well then.

Why You Should Be a Guidebook Troll
"Say be a guidebook kroll. What do you mean by that? Guidebook trolls you know. I think that I'm inside it because I've been guidebook author big guy. Books are still still filled with so many little secrets is kind of embedded in and they're very well researched in a lot of people kind of lose sight of that in this digital era. Be Be a guy patrol because you can find the thing that connects with you. You know like I talk about travelling like a travel writer. A travel writer has to dip their head under the surface and all kinds of different places news. And when there's creating a story or video something more than just even a guidebook what they often will do is find a quest and make their trip a quest and I think that if people people find something that the connect with and make it a quest out of it so the trip isn't just to see the Mona Lisa but to see what happens when you go and and do something in Paris that you're already passionate about an often. The tools for that are just embedded throughout guidebooks. Have so many things I think you said it yourself. A fifteen dollar investment for you know like ten thousand dollars of secrets end. I'm big Fan of Guy Bookstore. A lot of people are very penny wise and pound foolish when it comes to guide books and If your guidebooks any good I would say it pays for itself on the shuttle and from the airport of course you and I make money selling guidebook. So we sales pitch down pretty well but guidebooks our tools and I think when they're smartly they can be very
