Tiffany Smiley: Reflecting on Her Husband's Trauma
"How that changed not only your own life trajectory but also your husband Yeah Yes at 23 years old I resigned from my nursing job in Washington state and I took a one way flight out to Walter Reed army medical center where I didn't know if I was going to meet my husband dead or alive And when I walked into his trauma care unit I had student loan debt I had a car payment I didn't have anyone standing outside the door saying let's take care of that student loan for you And here's the pathway and everything's going to be okay Scotty had tubes coming out of every orphan of his body He was in a coma One thing that was certain was that the suicide bomber that he was negotiating with in service to our country in Mosul Iraq had detonated his car and the shrapnel from that detonation obliterated both of Scotty's eyes so he would be forever blind Thank God I was a nurse and I wasn't intimidated by the medical system but it was really my first interaction with sort of that larger government bureaucratic system where you are just a number And I stood up I refused to sign the army paperwork They had never had someone tell them no But I believed in this wild crazy idea that my husband could make a miraculous recovery I knew I could help him do that And that he could still serve And took on the DoD Gotti went on and became the first line to active duty officer to ever serve our country And we served for over a decade with Scotty completely blind and once he was well I knew I had to go back and make it right for everyone else So I took on VA reform and people said don't waste your time Tiffany But I knew it was the right thing to do And we were able to work on meaningful reforms that directly helped injured veterans and their families So it was the best waste of time that I ever spent but truly in that fight just realized you know we have so much more to fight for and I'm a mom of three young boys and me and Scotty want to leave them in America that's worth giving their eyesight for
If You Don't Get Angry, Something's Wrong With You
"But the reason I'm telling people this and I'm taking your time, John, is because Mario morelo spoke. A lot of people don't know who he is. Ladies and gentlemen, there are just a tiny handful of people like Mario Morello. I've never seen anyone bolder more in tune with what God is saying. I don't say that lightly. And what he talked about, you just got me thinking, John. The level of evil that is manifesting itself in the United States of America right now. When you hear about the government going after an organization like Christians engage dot org and saying, well, we're going to take away your tax exempt status. This is evil. And if you don't get angry at this, something's wrong with you. You're trying to pretend it's not happening. And by the way, that is about the most anodyne little thing you could possibly mention, but I just thought when Mario marlos spoke, he spoke about some of the genuinely wicked things done and there are people in the church convinced that somehow the Christian thing to do is to be quiet or to be nice. I mean, if somebody mutilates your children, are you not going to fight? Are you not going to stand? Are you not going to do? There are things happening that, you know, apart from the literal mutilation of children because of the transgender madness, if you don't speak up, if you don't get angry and say, I have an obligation to fight for what is right and true, the idea that I can't be political. You are absolutely hiding from reality. And I just want to be really blunt folks. God's going to judge us when we are silent in the face of evil. God calls us to speak. And not only will God judge you, I will judge you. I will be in the gulag for a couple of years before they finally come and get you. And when you show up, I will laugh at you. I will judge you. That's the most important thing. I mean, I tell you, forgive me, John, but you know, when you tell me that, that the IRS or whoever is trying to bother Christians engaged. It's another good reason to go to Christians engaged dot org, folks. Because we have to stand with those who are being persecuted and vilified, attacked in any event. Well, John. Well, I've got a piece at the stream that relates to this. And it's an unusual title. Is the Trump movement like Syria's Kurds and indispensable ally for Christians? Is the Trump movement like Syria's Kurds and indispensable ally for Christians? Like Syria's Kurds and indispensable ally for Christians. For Christians. Okay, let me guess. Yes. Yes. So I tell the story of two very similar Christian communities in very similar circumstances with tragically different outcomes. The Christians of Iraq had and the Christians of Syria as circa 2001 on September 11th, 2001. They were in very similar situations. They were dependent on the goodwill of secular Arab dictators. Saddam Hussein Bashir. The U.S. fights this pointless war in Iraq based on weapons of mass destruction that never existed. Our regime our occupation does not protect the Christians. The Muslims are infuriated that the American crusaders are in their countries. So they started attacking the local Christians who are hapless helpless scapegoats. They had all been disarmed by the government. Saddam Hussein, like a good tyrant, had gun control. America being good liberals, we kept gun control laws in Iraq. The Islamists like other criminals don't obey gun control laws. So they got lots of guns. The Christians of Iraq, obeyed the law, counted on the government to protect them, were slaughtered. Three fourths of the Christians in Iraq who had been there since the apostles, the churches have been there since the second century. Three fourths of Iraq's Christians were killed or driven into exile. And if you want to help them go to Iraqi Christian relief organization, they really do need your help. It's tragic because they were disarmed. They were helpless in the face of ISIS. When ISIS marched in the city of Mosul, which had 1.6 million people and tens of thousands of Christians. Like a hundred guys from ISIS took over a city of more than a million people because they'd all been disarmed by the government. Hundred guys took over a terrorized the city of 1.6 million people burned all the churches, drove all the Christians out, raped the women set up rape camps where they traded them. Horrendous tragic outcome. That is what happens when Christians trust a secular government that doesn't like them to protect them. And the secular government here in America clearly likes us less and less with each passing week. So as I've written and I've got a book on this coming out on this called God and guns versus the government, the more hostile the government becomes, the more important our gun rights become. Now let me tell the story of Syria. In Syria, do you remember the Arab Spring went to democracy was going to come to the Arab world? Well, how did that work out? Joey walked out. We have to go to a break here, but I just have to remind my audience just so that they're tracking with the conversation. The lunacy of the Arab Spring, the lunacy that the idea that democracy could break out in a place like that. The naivete of the people who put forward that narrative. And then we saw it collapse and they never bothered to say, oh, oh yeah, we were wrong about that. When we come back talking to John for the rest of the hour and more, don't go away. Well, I for one second, I've got an alarm going off. I got to turn it off. Is the government the best mechanism for fighting poverty? Are there any real life examples of communities successfully combating addiction and homelessness today? How can we best deliver hope to our nation, those questions get answered September 23rd on Salem now dot com in an inspiring new motion picture from kingstone studios based on a true story in no vacancy a demoted journalist finds her cynicism slowly transformed as she befriends a recovering addict while working a story about a church struggling to purchase a motel for homeless families, no vacancy, starring dean Cain, TC stallings and Sean young is based on the true story of first baptist Leesburg, Florida, and a real location the Samaritan inn.

I can't understand how you can be assigned to be some or someplace and the army doesn't have a plan to get you there at that to me is. Does that happen often. Because it doesn't sound like it makes sense at all or your aunt basically on your own to get where they assign you to be the first year it was. That's that's that's bizarre in my in my view. It's just like that's not the way we assume it works. If you're if you're not in the military you think they have you know transport for everybody who is supposed to be where this supposed to be a plan for all stop That's an enlightenment in in my view.

By the fact that twitter became the thing instantly and all of us went to twitter everyone including facebook to announce it they were down twitter even like troll them by saying hello everyone and the only thing that the whole experience was for me real quick was just the means that flowed in. We're just priceless hilarious. And i think. I had the most fun and laugh the most yesterday as the jokes and hilarity ensued on twitter. And so for me honestly. It wasn't a mortal wound in any way in terms of our marketing efforts. But i had a blast on twitter. Just read everybody's jokes and it just made me realize i guess the point was maybe. There's a reason alternates exist. And the you need to be not on a single source of communication to or social media tool for such a time as that to use the biblical phrase but yeah. That was my first. My first thought was twitter. was awesome. Excellent jason you noticed. Book was down right because i think that's a question that a lot of people aren't really thinking about is like honestly i didn't notice right now. This was a rare day. I do spend more time on facebook. Should this was a day where i was out. I was doing it for things. I did check the facebook app a couple times. It wasn't voting. But i thought it was like okay. It's not loading. Maybe like i need to restart the app. Maybe like sometimes. If i'm on wifi near a business that it will try to that wifi. And it's not loading so i turn off wifi load. I thought well maybe like you know the five g. around here isn't that good and i forgot about. I didn't care like like nothing. I was doing was depended on facebook specifically so then. When i heard it was like out for like six hours or something. I didn't notice. And i only did on the app. I didn't go computers. I didn't notice a facebook dot. com was.

"Have to move away from dia culture to be able to hear hear that to hear what our body how our bodies guide us. I really love the you made that distinction because something that that I think about a lot of and i talked to my clients about when when they kind of get to that point for intuitive eating or mindful eating around that thought process i think about educating them on how to i mary what my body's desires are with what my body's needs are and then how do i learn to listen to what my body is saying and i think that's a lot of what you're talking about and sometimes my body is saying. Yeah i'd like to eat a doughnut. You know and that's okay and other towns body saying no. I'd really like eat. This hugh this big delicious salad from someplace or whatever it is and i really liked the you make that distinction that it actually is eating whatever you want whenever you want. But the thing that's different is learning how to shut out the clutter in the in the mind and all that that chatter. That's going on that's trying to dictate how we should and shouldn't be eating. Yeah definitely will also add that. I think that when people say you know monthly just about eating whatever you want whenever you wanted or people who say who who aren't practicing mindful eating and they're like i ready eat whatever i want whenever i want it very often. They're not tuned talking about being truly tuned into their bodies. So when we're stuck in diet culture we tend to think that what we want is whenever we're not allowed to have so when we are like following diet plan and then we kind of go off the rails. We were eating whatever we want. But really what we're eating is just like whatever's not allowed on the diet like all those foods categorizes quote unquote bad And that's not necessarily what you even want. But when we're stuck in that back and forth with dieting and restricting around food and labelling food as good or better you know permissible or off limits. Were eating just based on that dichotomy And it's hard to tell what you want when you're stuck in that paradigm so. I think that you know i hear diet. Culture is kind of like the chatter when he said like how to out the chatter. Dikhil i think of as the chatter that that constant like sense of judgment around food criticism about what we're eating in our body Constant fear that. We're not doing it right. They were not good enough. The shame the you know all of that stuff and so isolated in the book a little bit like this like so. We have a what i call like an internal Gps like a navigation system kind of hard wired into our bodies. And that's our bodies very sophisticated highly evolved way of telling us what to eat. Went to eat how much all of that good stuff like. We have that guidance inside. And what happens if you imagine being like in the car listening to your gps system You can imagine a situation where maybe the. Gps has turned down. The volume is turned down low. And you're like blasting really loud music you know really loud over it so you can't hear what the gps telling you. It doesn't mean the gps isn't there trying to guide you. It just means you can't hear it and that's a little bit about how i think about how diet culture gets in the way because diet cultures like that really loud music that you're blasting so when we can learn to just turn down the volume on the music and actually here the navigation system it's guiding us clearly and i think you know Mindfulness is one of the most powerful tools we have to be able to both like turn down the volume on diet culture in turn up the value on our body is internal navigation and i think a huge part of this too is that not only is a love your analogy not only is the music too loud is the diet culture music too loud right but the music is also telling you. Don't listen to the gps system because it will lead you astray right. This is another like road. Bumper obstacle that people run into when they're trying to learn a more neutral approach to food in a non-judgmental approach to food. They're like wait a minute. But i have either been told or basically absorbed right or been conditioned to leave. I can't trust the signals of my body. Because if i do they're going to lead me astray right and when we think of a stray it means i'm going to be super unhealthy and i'm just gonna eat all of the no foods right because when you're in the face of restriction your body like doesn't like those rules right so it's always gonna try and rebel against that and say like. Oh you told me. I can't eat ice cream. i want now. all. I'm going to think about his ice cream right. So then you think and this can be a reality for some people but not everybody but you think that when you turn down that music where we peel back those rules that all you're ever going to want to eat is ice cream. Which when you finally get to the place of unconditional permission to eat all foods. You're not going to want to eat ice cream all day every day because when you can start start to finally listen to those internal signals your body's going to tell you hey eating ice cream all day every day doesn't feel very great and then you're naturally going to start to crave other things but you can't get to that point until you finally turn that music down exactly and i think that that's one of the most common concerns that i hear when people are starting to go away from dieting and embrace more mindful approach food that they're like well. I'm just gonna sit on the couch. You need ice cream all day. And you know i i totally understand that fear and i think we have many of us have really want history of feeling out of control certain foods because we've been restricting them even in the research we look at you know how they kind of induced like addictive like behaviors in the rats setting. It's by restricting. Their access to the food so in the same thing happens to us when we're restricting when we feel that we're not you know we have to eat it now or never or have all of this kind of baggage around certain foods like of course he feels totally out of control around them but when we can work to turn down the volume on that narrative and the food is just food and really trust that. It's always there. We can always have it and how much of it. Whenever we wanted we start to be able to discern a little bit more like. When do we actually want it and How much do we want at each time. Where we know like i could. I could have this morning noon and night. Do i want it morning noon the night or maybe just want it morning and night or maybe you know so raval to kind of Get a little more information that's balanced and and more tuned to our body. But i think if i can say you know i i like to say. There's no mistakes and mindful eating but one of the most you know other places. I really see people You know kind of giving throwing in the towel too early in this process is that people start to lessen the restrictions around food and you they say ice cream for example is a food. That's you know. has a lot of conflict around it for for someone So they say okay. I can have ice cream. Whatever i wanted and maybe like that first day they eat a whole pint of ice cream or ice cream. They're like they come back in there. Like i can't believe you told me to like go. Buy all this ice cream. I eat it all the first day. What's wrong with you see can't do this. I can't be trusted. I'm going back on weight watchers. And like they're you know abandoned chef and like again. That's your body's really natural response to just kind of reacclimating from prolonged periods of restriction. But when you can stay with it and say okay greet. You had to finds of ice cream. Go back to the store. This have often recommend my clients. Keep the food in the house with them and like i'm like we'll go back to the store. Get two more pints maybe at four pines and see what happens and keep brief restocking. And i've never worked with someone where they consisted where they stuck with it and consistently were just eating ice cream all the time. It's ever happened everyone fears. It's going to happen but eventually start to say okay. Like i get it the ice creams there. I can have it whenever i wanted and like actually lake. I'm really not in the mood for ice cream right now. So i'm going out something else like it's hard to believe when you're on the other side with mosul do get that point but what a beautiful way of kind of having them reestablish trust with their body and being able to tune into what that looks like one of the things that we've noticed a lot of as me and dana both have a chronic. Health condition is that a lot of times. People don't feel like it's accessible to them. This idea like oh now. All foods aren't available to me because i have x. y. and z. Chronic health condition or like in. Dana's casey both have silly disease. You actually talk about this really directly in your book which is so great because a lot of people don't talk about mindful eating with conical conditions So we really love that. In fact in you even quoted mindful eating with a chronic. Health condition isn't much different than any other mindful eating. Your body provides value in for me valuable information that can guide your eating. I'd love for you to talk more about mindful eating and chronic health conditions and actually kind of showing people that it is really accessible. Yeah so you know i. I think that it's all about making choices. Mindful eating is all about allowing ourselves. You know to have choices around. Who and just because we can choose any food we want. It doesn't mean that we have to eat every single food. That's available to us. So as we start to learn about mindful eating. We often start to recognize their certain foods that make my body feel good there certain foods. That just don't agree with me. There's foods that i like that. I don't like. And i think that when someone has a chronic health condition their bodies just talking to them sometimes loud way when something isn't sitting right so you know for example if the of silly z. Is like most often. If you eat something with gluten in it like your body's going to let you know really loud and clear that like that doesn't feel good and that doesn't mean that certain foods are restricted are limits or like. You can't eat them but you can make choices around weather like it's whether you wanna eat it or not knowing that like i'm gonna eat this it's gonna make me feel terrible Is it. Am i willing to do that like do. I want to make that choice. So i think it's just about gathering information about your body and making choices Whether you know this is why. Say it's not. I think we all do that It's just a little bit more intensified when you have a chronic condition. Yeah it's really interesting because if we took this out of context right if someone was coming from the diet mentality. They're like wait. That just looks like another elimination diets. Like no because you can't get to this point of mindful eating with chronic health conditions until you learn how to disassociate from diet culture. Turn that loud music down and give yourself unconditional permission to eat all foods right like if you took this piece of advice and you still in the diet culture mindset. It does look exactly the same right. It's okay. I have see lack disease. I don't eat gluten. That's a rule right whereas now it's like i can eat gluten if i want to. Is it a good idea. Absolutely not right. But i'm an adult and i can make decisions and i'm always allowed to eat if i want to but i know from personal experience that my body hates it when i eat gluten and it feels horrible for like not only days. We're talking like weeks up to long term ramifications of like months right. So i personally don't want to have to deal with that. So is it a rule. No but it's a guideline that i choose to follow because it doesn't feel good and you don't have to have ceac disease to have that kind of reaction to a food. Either right. this can be with. Diabetes is one of the examples that you've given your book right if you have diabetes or prediabetes or anything like that and you notice that when you eat foods that are higher in sugar or anything like that that you get this hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia so high blood sugar and than low blood. Sugar in it feels awful. Maybe let's figure out a way that you don't feel awful. Does that mean you can't ever eat those foods. No absolutely not. You can always eat them but then you can work with a licensed practitioner. Who specializes in non diet. Nutrition mindful eating with chronic health conditions in a neutral nutrition. Way right like a non wait centric way and then you can figure out how to manage that on your own with out making it a rule of okay. I can only have this much. Carbohydrates or this much sugar every day because this is a diet culture rule that we're following. Yeah exactly and i think that oftentimes you might end up coming to the same ways in terms of your preferred style of eating that you know would be coming from like a rule of like i have seen so i can't eat gluten but the internal process is very different and the psychological ramifications are very different because it's coming from a place of caring for yourself and from self compassion versus this like i'm not allowed to which we tend to resist and fight back against I also you know. I'll make a plug for people who have chronic health conditions or you know think have strong feelings about foods that their body can or can't tolerate but i i do highly recommend working with a non diet dietitian because Especially when we're recovering from eating disorders or in the midst of eating disorder or just really intensely caught diet culture. The stress around eating certain foods can make our body have a reaction that doesn't feel good and often. That's not so much to do with the with the food itself as much as just the way that we're thinking about food so i sometimes hear people say well. My body can't eat this man. It's pretty restrictive diet. And as they heal their relationship with food and often work with a dietitian. sometimes they're able to realize well. Actually i can eat that. It was just my.

Don't you dare stop me because on this show, do we stop right there? No, we don't. We boldly go where No financial show has gone before and therefore at about 10 till we will have our estate tip of the week And that's the part of the show. We talk about how to pass on to your greedy, unwashed undeserving ares the fruits of your labor. And that's called a state planning. And this week we're going to talk about, you know, a pretty basic thing, but one that I think is probably the most common mistake that people make. And that is we're gonna talk about reviewing your beneficiary designations. Okay, So what I'm talking about there is on your IRAs and your 41 case and all And you will even you know, Beneficiary designations is something that you should visit and I'm gonna tell a story that will, I think illustrate the importance of that very Dramatically. So we'll have that for you at about 10 tails. So we have a fantastic show. I hope you'll stay tuned for the entire program. I gotta tell you something quick, though I'm bachelor ring it right now. My wife eyes off with my youngest daughter, who fortunately has a job and she starts her new career and s O Mom is helping her move into her apartment. And you know where it is. Washington, D C Yes, in the middle of all the stuff that's going on in Washington. Right now, That's where they're headed, and s so they're going to be there on Monday, getting her moved in. She has an apartment with two other girls. I should say women on de so she's starting off her career. And, you know, we kind of told her we'd rather she didn't with the pandemic and all the You know the stuff that's going on in Washington right now, and she's like, no, I want to start my life. It's time I'm going. So Mom is going to get her moved in. In the meantime, I have to feed the stupid cats. And I'm a dog person. But we've got old cats. So we got ear infections. We've got thyroid pills. We gotta give him got to put it in their food. And oh, my gosh. And and then the litter box. Don't even get me started with the litter box. So Oh, my gosh. I would rather I don't know. But anyway, that's what it is. So let's talk about my fearless forecast. And so I'll just say it right now. But the fearless forecast for this year is 35,000 on the Dow on by the reason for that is, I think that with the vaccine with the stimulus package, we're gonna have an economy on steroids. And I've been talking about this and previous shows. So you know you can listen to the those for my logic behind all of that. But this year FEARLESS forecast Dow 35,000 of my fearless forecast is basically the highest point for the year. It's not the year ending value. It's the highest point for the year. Now. Last year, my fearless forecast was 31,000 on the Dow. And of course it hit 30,600. So I was 400 points off in 2019. I did not have a fearless forecast. I just didn't decide doesn't didn't do one Latin in 2019. But in 2018 my fearless forecast was for the Dow to be a 26,500. And it actually hit that my fearless forecast in 2017 was 25,000 and it hit 24,800 on de so now in 2016. I missed big. I saw a bear market that year and I saw the Dow hitting 11,500 didn't and made 16,000 in 2015. I saw the Dow with 19,000. It hit 18,300 s O close and in 2014. I said the Dow would hit 18,000 and and the last day of the year it hit the 18,000 and in 2013 I said 16,000, and it did that so out of the last seven years, my fearless forecast was pretty accurate except for one year. On. So this year 35,000 on the Dow. So what does that mean to you? Well, I see a lot of opportunity, but at the same time there is a lot of risk. You know, The market has had a tremendous run here over the last three months, and so it is possible we could have a correction. Certainly. I also am concerned about the fact that we could see stimulus, not work. The pandemic turned for the worst. You know who knows what could happen and so, therefore having a defensive strategy to protect you, you know, growth with protection is what we believe you should have. And so are investing. Protect strategy actually told us to sell in November of 2007 and to protect against everything that happened in 2000 and eight on with the markets, the S and P And all of that, And those that follow our advice didn't experience that kind of those kind of losses. So if you're over 50 if you are retired or retiring soon now is the time to sit down and develop your plan. And I'd like to encourage you to go to our website. It's our P O a calm.

National Native American Veterans Memorial opens in Washington, DC
"Opens today on the National Mall in Washington, D C. It's the Native American Veterans Memorial. Native Americans have served in the armed forces in high numbers for more than a century. This is the first memorial to honor that service. Here's NPR's Quil Lawrence. The memorial is simple. A steel circle elevated over carved stone drum. It sits in the shade of the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian Kevin Go over, is a member of the Pawnee Nation and the museum's director. It's an article of faith in Indian country that Native American serve at a greater rate than basically any other group. So we wish for this to be a sacred place, not just for Native America. But for all Americans. The opening ceremony went virtual because of the pandemic. But here are a few of the people go over hopes will one day attend and sanctify the site. My name is Marcel Grande La Bull. And I'm from the two kettle ban of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe. You know? I'm 101 years old. No in 1940 for Marcela Lobo was a surgical nurse at an Army hospital during the battle of the Bulge Well, In December. I believe it was 1/16 of December. The Germans overtook the American soldiers. They wondered about putting in a hospital so close to the front lines, but they did. So we were there in leisure. And we had both funds night and day. At the time of the breaks through the growth of the bulge. Lobo says her own community always honored her military service. Now the memorial in Washington means the whole country conduce this same to be AH, thought like it was a great honor. My ancestors were warriors. I'm related to rein in the face who fought in the battle of the little big horn or greasy grass that they called it. My father was a Spanish American war veteran. My brother oldest brother was a veteran all down the line. But some native vets aren't as aware of their own family service. Yeah, my name is Colonel Wayne Don don has served 27 years in the army, including Bosnia and Afghanistan. You know, for a lot of years, I thought I was a first generation military person came to find out is both of my grandfather and uncles. And served in a territorial guard during World War two. That was an emotional discovery for dawn and a complicated one not just native Americans, but on the other minority groups, ultimately that they chose to serve to represent their people. And also to serve a country that this, you know, sometimes. Didn't have AH would've proved to be their best interests in mind, but they're still still did it, He says. Now that the country is wrestling with questions about racial justice, he hopes the memorial can play a part. Army vet Allan Ho feels the same. He's native Hawaiian saw combat in Vietnam. Then his two sons served after 9 11, his oldest son. Nine. No. Ho was killed in Iraq and he wass Credible young man. He was an officer, platoon leader, and he was killed in 25 in Mosul, Iraq. His younger brother's the staff sergeant. His name is Locke or And the meaning for a knock or is a warrior who is brave and courageous. Those are the stories of service and sacrifice. He wants Americans to hear it. The new memorial for native visitors, Ho wants it to be a validation and an inspiration. And then perhaps, who knows? Maybe some young Native son who experiences that memorial for this first time, we'll be in 50 years from now he'll be that the president of the United States who knows Quil Lawrence NPR news
Mumm Napa Brut Prestige Review
"It's David again from cheap wine by the.com. The other wine review that we put on the cheap wine fiber.com website and I noticed lately though. I'm kind of going upscale. Everything is Bordeaux or Napa or Rushing River and well, I kind of did that again? Let me grab the bottle and see what we got here. It's it's not expensive. But it it's Mom Napa Brut Prestige and sparkling wine from Champagne house in France, but they've been in Napa since the seventies so it's fifty years. It's been a long time. It's half half 45% Chardonnay 45% Pinot Noir and the rest is a little bit of a mix of you know, greed. It's just you know, Greenfield a green show your same thing. And what was the other one, you know, what a you know, what is the the hidden grape & in Champaign? It's in all the champagne. You don't know it. So there you go, and it's from Napa and it's one of the kind of weird things because this is a Napa sparkling wine and not a French champagne. Normally when you drink Snapple why that's oh it's Napa except when champagne and then it's oh, it's Napa off cuz it's not you. Hey, we're gonna go get into that because I think that's wrong. So what we have here is like I said, it's a little bit of a dead. Grapes that are approved of champagne right here is a couple of other groups really get used aren't here but it's got the main ones they use 45 different growers in Nampa all day from parts for the line and that's really typical. They make champagne. I know one of the leading Champagnes, you know, the uses a hundred different Growers to Champaign most champagne house and then champagne don't really have much Vineyard Holdings. They they contract long-term contracts for all other groups. And you know, that's how they do it. That's how they're doing it. That's how I am doing it here. I know it's like they've been the emphasis 1970 and they've been in Champaign since like 1827 or something. So these are people know what they're doing. They brought them know how to California even though like most of the American sparkling wine bubbly houses the schramsberg Gloria Ferrer Iron Horse are Sonoma. I guess there's some up in age, you know, they bring their expertise to Napa and this is a year and half second fermentation year and half the first fermentation is in mosul stainless steel and then they put some of it in French Oak barrels to give it that kind of thing going that they blend in. I mean the other surprise champagne house all Out their style ahm how Styles there's the first fermentation for the most part was where all the tricks are. There's just there the little bit of folk a little bit of stainless steel and all the other things had picked their drapes and all that are all in there. So you're getting a real bump style especially after fifty years and now but I mean, they they've come to get their own state of Mississippi cuz in my hand here, I mean, they probably get me a maid came with the French style. They probably created some Napa style go along with it. And here's what I have to say. Very expensive champagnes are Sublime. They're just crazy of every you ever get to drink it. But which I do every once awhile, you know, sometimes our ten years in bottle. I mean and they're so the spinach ten years needs in the bottle and they have all these exotic production techniques and these things are crazy expensive and just crazy delicious, but they're regular ones are kind of reachable this thing. I found out I think Seventeen or eighteen dollars Napa Brut Prestige Brutus, not too sweet. You are not miss out from Champagne. I mean in a blind tasting most people unless there's champagne had know these things. Most people wouldn't know the difference and this is Anna like half the price unless off. I mean, they'll be cheaper come December when all the champagne zor sa land they'd probably make after sales but you know regular time $18 for what is an excellent choice. It's delicious. It's balance is pretty good at this you wouldn't know the difference. So just because it doesn't have champagne or label has Napa who how bad could it be that has Napa on the label.

Likudnt: Israels political crisis
"In Israel just last month. Benyamin Netanyahu was celebrating a strong showing by his Likud party in parliamentary elections. He had been forced to call an early poll as he faced a raft of corruption allegations, his victory seemed like a vote of confidence by the Israeli people. And he grinned ingredient cheering crowds on election night, but all has not gone smoothly since Israel has many political parties and mister Netanyahu has struggled to build the coalition he needs to form a government. He called publicly on one party leader. His former defense minister of eager Lieberman to join him. Let's through this of net, the victim liberal, unfortunately, until this moment, including tonight, I didn't manage to complete a victory Lieberman to avoid elections. But whoever looks at the reality that we need to be responsible and former government immediately those please failed. So a few minutes after midnight, the Israeli parliament, the Knesset voted to dissolve it. So for reports from Israel for the economist and recently wrote a book about mister Netanyahu. And this is just thirty days after it was sworn in seven weeks after Laos election in. This is unprecedented in his right. But it'd go history. And why it's been so difficult to, to build a coalition Netanyahu proclaimed victory, because his block of right wing, religious parties had a majority of five seats in the Knesset. So it seemed that he had one. However, to make that victory reality needed to get all those policies cooperating together in one coalition and one issue the issue of the draft of Sheva students, students in religious seminaries proved so prove so contentious that one of the parties demanded the law on this. We should be ready drafted the previous be passed as literally, without changing, a comma, while some of the religious parties in the coalition demanded major changes to the law, and the prime minister. Currently so prime minister, who was very eager to begin his fifth tablet, prime minister couldn't bridge those differences. So what happens now? So what should have happened last night at midnight was with Netanyahu deadline on the tiny allocated to him to form the coalition up sewing else you've received the opportunity to, to form a coalition by his Rayleigh low, but there was also, there's those close into never been used with specifies that dissolved the whole process of foreign governments stops and the country goes back to the polls, and that is the closet into Neo used and therefore in three and a half months Israel will be held another election. And meanwhile, mister Netanyahu is under investigation on corruption allegations. How will that then play out in the current absence of government and the potential for a different one was really Mr. Gatien's ready been wraps up, and the attorney general has tentatively decided to indict into now on bribery and fraud in through? In, in those three investigations Mosul efforts over the last few weeks when he should have been trying to solve this problem between his coalition partners was trying to get the parties to agree to vote on various pieces of legislation, which would grant him immunity from prosecution and would shield him from any intervention of the high court in that decision. That is now that has now been shelved those pieces of today's another go ahead. Certainly not until the election, and another government is formed, assuming wins the next election form that government. So he's lost very valuable time for him. And in that time the hearing. Harry's. It will proceed and there's a chance that before the attorney general decides to, to indict attending and to charge them in court for bribery, he, he won't have any relation in place. It to shield him has steadfastly denied the allegations ever since the investigations begun over three years ago. He said, there's nothing in them, but step after step it turned out that there is some serious evidence, which led to form investigation. But now he's instead of is standing up in court against he's trying to vade any kind of you say this situation is unprecedented. And, you know, everyone would have expected that mister Netanyahu could have formed, a government does the fact that he hasn't suggest that, perhaps his rivals smell blood and are positioning themselves for power. Well, certainly Evita Lumine the leader of small, nationalist secular, particle, Estrella bay, taint, Israel, our home, who demanded that. The law be. Passed. And that was the reason why there is no code Asian. He says he felt that he could challenge the two now. And see his calculation is that now is, is going down eventually and therefore, there's no reason for him to be a member. His coalition is ready staking out, new ground in the right wing for the in the post tenure era. So he's, he's the first major is right wing politician, Israel to openly challenge. It's in recent years, and they'll be others who will follow him, if there is this large group of parties. Why is Mr. LeBron Lieberman ended up as the king-maker here? Well, the there was nothing, you know, block of parties had a majority of five seats, those five seats, a walked LeBron's party without those five seats than the majority, and what about the peace process? Jared Kushner is is in the country with this US led plan in hand on solving is really Palestinian issues. But there's no government for. Him to talk to. Well, we've got used to the fact that the Trump administration delaying disposing the unveiling of its much way to peace plan. But now that finally have gone out to this piece for spiritedly workshop beret next month. I doubt that they'll delay once again due to the political turmoil in Israel. It's mainly anyway, for the Americans to get together with our bed regimes and work out some kind of economic offense not yet, the ethical stage of, of, of the Trump, and if we ever get to that stage, that stage will will probably be postponed due to these Rayleigh election. Right. And how do you think the, the election will go? Do you, do you think that mister Netanyahu will be able to form a coalition the next time around? It's wouldn't election two months ago. He didn't manage to take that victory and, and China into a function government, but he, he, he wouldn't the right wing religious, bodies one majority, which was not known large one, but it was pretty clear. And it's difficult to see the opposition overturning that this point. But we're in uncharted territory. Now we've never had a second election in the same year's election held just only five months after the previous one. And there's also this new rift within the right wing have a right wing party. Basically saying that Netanyahu, dreitzer, former government, he failed, and now we probably won't be sporting in the future. So there's a sort of shift in the political map in Israel, which which will have to wait and see how that pans out. Thank you very much for your time.
The age-old quest for the color blue
"Up we have contributing correspondent Kaikaku for Schmidt. He's here to talk to us about the pursuit of blue. Hi kai. So how long have humans been on the hunt for a blue color? That's already whether the difficulty begins. I guess. Yeah. Pretty good evidence from a cave in South Africa, the Blombos cave that one hundred thousand years ago, humans already will making pigments so more like red ochre yellow ker in using charcoal for black. They will make pigments. But there's no evidence at all of any blue pigments than for a very very long time. That stays the same is some recent evidence of from from gravesite in Turkey that about nine thousand years ago. There was some burials of women children whether it had ground down as right, which is a blue mineral. And even when it's down. It's it's kind of a nice, blue pigment. They were very with this possibly was used for medics. We don't really know. But that's kind of the earliest evidence. We have of any Lukman. Why is blue so rare? Is there some physical property required to make something reflect the color blue, it's hard to achieve if you look in the plot world as a lot of different classes, pigments that we have. But there's only one class of pigments Dan to signs which can actually make blue. And even then it tends to be the complicated molecules that blue in that simply because in order for something to be blue it needs to absorb the rent. So the other part of the visible spectrum, basically and red light is of the visible spectrum. It's the lowest energy light. So in order for something to absorb the red. The kind of jumps that an electron makes which is how molecule usually absorbs collapse these jumps need to be very small jumps in order to absorb the right rather than the blue. So it's much easier for nature appears to make molecules that absolve blue instead of once that absorb Bredon appeal blue these molecules often have to have. A lot of consigned chains and little ecoregions until they really make a good blue. I mean, there is blue in nature. We got water we got sky, we got blueberries. But for some reason making a synthetic version making a dye or pigment is really difficult. What about blue butterflies? Those those have nice blue color several of the blues. You've mentioned now are ones that aren't really pigment. So if you take sky, it's you know, kind of scattered more than than red light. Which is why the sky his loop in Walter. It's interesting because Walter actually absorbs kind of in the red kind of to vibrate the water molecules vibrate with the energy of red light. But it's not a very strong effect. Which is why you only see the bluest as up of water, and then the butterflies like most animals, they also not producing any blue pigments, they have like tiny structures that reflect light in a way that most of the other colors cancelled. So. If you take something very famous example like Mosul butterfly if you do into the scales on its wings. It has these little structures, and they basically end up reflecting all of the light the Chines onto the onto the wing in a way that the other colors, just disappear. What you see is the blue. So basically, everything is not a payment or at tied that we see in everyday life. But if we want to reproduce, those colors, if we want to make painting or make something out of plastic. That's the right color blue. It's really difficult, exactly. And humans in the past. Usually they found these pigments by accident. Some of the earliest examples are indigo which is a dye made from plants, but actually the plot itself isn't extra blue. So it's a blue from nature, but it's only blue ones humans do some chemistry on people for a very long time wanted to try and make synthetic indigo. And it took the s chemical company many, many years in precedent. The amount of money to finally come up with synthetic indigo. So they spent more than eight million gold marks at the time, which was more than the company was even worth to finally come up with with the recipe for synthetic indigo which was then produced around the world in is still used today to color jeans. It does make me wonder what is wrong with the blues that we have. I mean, we have plenty of toys that are blue plastic. We have paints that are blue. What what are those things that are available now not doing right or not cheating? Right. Chart is just the festive nation with colors, right? I mean, there are so many different hues of blue. And if somebody comes up with a new one, it's just especially of the artists. So usually the first ones to use them at it's just fascinating to have, you know, one more shoop. But then the other thing is that a little the blues that use Sopher instance, ultra marine, which is basic ground down. That's right. The part of Lapsley. It was one of the one of the most expensive pigments ever made was just very rare, right? Because you need the semi precious stone Lasley to even able to do it later people came up with a way of making it synthetically. But then even this static version it takes her chemicals to make that end up polluting the environment. A lot of self dioxide is produced as site product while you do so that I mean, that's one reason this the environmental implications on the other one office. Toxicity. I mean, this quite a few loose kkob. Lou that on that on exactly healthy, and this is an ongoing. Search people are still looking for blue pigments, and dyes and new or you took a look at three different approaches that are in the works right now, let's start with the first blue seeking scientists that actually found a new blue. But on accident like most blues in history, so must super money on this is a solid state chemists than he worked for a while. And he made a lot of discoveries, but not really related to pigments at all. And then he started work at Oregon state university in values. Two thousand six and what he actually wanted to do was to find what's called a multi for roic, basic material at room temperature has certain magnetic properties also electrical properties in that would make really interesting for building a computer. And so he used manganese oxide. Trim oxide in indium oxide, and he combined these Anna turn up that the compound came up with didn't have any interesting properties. But it was incredibly blue and he remembered from his days to punt the people said Lewis actually kind of hard to make. So he just published it and the color that he created has just had this incredible life of being used in many many places than now. It's also being sold far too to us.
Islamic State's foreign fighters: What happens to them now?
"Syria. Islamic state is a state no longer earlier this week, the Jihadist group which at its peak controlled an area of Syria and Dirac lodge of Austria and imposed its brutal rule upon eight million. People was chased out of its last pocket of territory by goose a town on the frightens river near Syria's border with Iraq in losing its territory is Lennox state lost many of its fighters, but it didn't lose all of them. Thousands of the caliphates foot soldiers are presenting themselves and their families at refugee camps and presenting the countries from which many of them hailed with a considerable political legal and ethical pickle. Which is basically this. What is to be done with them? There have been some calls for an international tribunal. But it is surely impossible to put so many people on trial. They cannot simply be abandoned, and it would be a brave politician willing to bet their career or a society willing to bet it safety on these. Jihadists returning home as altogether reformed characters. This is the foreign desk. Hot is pre programmed to think of every defeats as a test in. There will never see anything in as permanent defeat because it has already pre-programmed into their minds mindset and into their psyche. If you send these people to Iraq, they will be killed. So you have this dilemma of western countries that don't want their people back. Some of them are willing to send them to Iraq to be put on trial there. But they're sending them to Iraq with a full understanding that they're going to be put on trial and going to be held in conditions, which could very well include torture and result in the death sentence. The tendency that we have in western Europe amendment to say, it's not out problem. They left us. They took up arms against us. We want nothing to do with them is all very well by the peasant doesn't cease to exist. So I think it behoves the society which broken up to consider why has this Cussing taken on against us? And what should we be doing about that not with the individual concern? Sent only but also with society as a whole. You're listening to the foreign desk with me Andrew Miller today will be hearing from a former director of global counterterrorism at M I six and from the full member of al-qaeda to look at what can be done, and what should be done with defeated jihadis. But I for a view from the ground from Syria on joined by Jane, Arraf international correspondent with NPR. Jane, stop by asking you to set the scene forest where he speaking to us from exactly what have you been able to see over the past few days. Well, I am in a which is one of the cities in the sort of a ton of Mus Kurdish region of Syria. And this is also where some leadership the Kurdish leadership is these officials who are trying to persuade other countries that they should have an international tribunal here in this northeastern part of Syria and been able to go to a couple of the camps where they're holding foreign his wills Iraqi. And Syrian ISIS families, and I've also been able to speak to one of the foreign fighters. Those foreign fighters have been apprehended by Kurds and the US coalition the US led coalition in many cases, they've been in US detention in Syria detention centers, actually, run by the US, and now handed over back to Kurdish forces, do you have a sense of what kind of numbers we're talking about in terms of the ISIS fighters currently being held by the codes. And that's all of the Iraqi Syrian and foreign there are said to be about seven thousand of them. So that is mostly Syrian and Iraqi about a thousand of them eight hundred two thousand or said to be foreign fighters accused foreign fighters, we have to make clear that they haven't actually been tried or convicted yet, but they are suspected to be foreign fighters. So that's all the way up from eight hundred to about a thousand is the estimate you generally get from US military officials as wills occurred. In what sense you able to get a what kind of conditions that being held in? Well, compared to what they came from which was almost certain death as US air strikes in waters attacked the last bit of their territory. It's, you know, not bad the conditions of interviewing these fighters preclude either asking for getting detailed answers about how they're being held in where they're being held. But one of the ones that I interviewed he was a Canadian fighter had been held in solitary confinement for quite a while. He also said that he was having trouble getting medical care. Clearly was well enough to do an interview. But certainly medical care seems to be an issue, but having said that, you know, having covered this battle against ISIS the war against ISIS over the entire ISIS territory. It's much better than the fate that befell a lot of them which was basically being obliterated by air. Yikes. Mortars and in other cities, if we boil this entire story for the moment down to this one Canadian fighter. What sense were you able to get all of his views on gun to assume it was a he his views on now on the subject of the ideology. He joined up to fight fo did you get the sensitize east had much in the way of a rethink? Yeah. Pretty much all of them have. And this was really interesting because I found this as well. In the case of the women who were married to ISIS fighters. They have now been for several months at least in detention with either Kurds or Americans, this particular foreign fighter told me that you know, he'd had a lot of time to think, but not only that he'd had a lot of interactions with the Americans who interrogated him and with the people who are holding him and with the Kurds. He said, for instance, but one point the Americans had given him novels to read one of the women. I spoke with told me that she had. Been aware. And I'm not sure if this is true, but she said she hadn't been aware of that ISIS held slaves. You know, they took thousands of UCD's from the tiny ziti religious minority as slaves massacred, the men and took the women and girls as sex slaves. She said she'd never met one until one of them was brought to the detention center to talk to them. And she said, and that's when I realized it was true. It wasn't just rumors. What they did to these women. So yes, in many cases, certainly in the case of this Canadian fighter. I it seems to have had an impact another foreign woman who is married to ISIS fighters told me that she was happy that she wasn't sent straight back to her country. She was from the Netherlands, and she said had she been sent back. She would still have been radicalized. But as it was her views of changed a lot. She said in being held for months and months by the Kurds because the biggest question, I guess the overarching question that we're looking at in this episode is with the ideology. Of ISIS will survive the destruction of the caliphate that the whole selling point of Islam state, and there was a clue in the name was that it had conquered territory. It was building a nation. It was building a homeland. If it is seen to have filed in that central enterprise. Do you think it's still going to be able to recruit people who might be inclined towards jihad? Or is it you'll sense from talking to the people you just mentioned that they kind of starting to realize that they might have back to lose a well there are a couple of things here. One is that in terms of ISIS being able to recreate a territory the caliphate had held which ranged for seventy thousand square kilometres, roughly and encompassed major cities. No one really believes they'll be able to do that. Again. In part of the reason, it's very apparent in Iraq. For instance, the people of Mosul, which is the second biggest city in Iraq. At first, many of them will tell you. They welcomed. Isis five years ago when ISIS came in because they so hated the Iraqi government and security forces, and then they realized what ISIS actually was which was indescribably brutal. The also they will not make that mistake. Again. They know what ISIS is now they know the dangers. But having said that there is a real fear that there is another ISIS in the making because we're talking about roughly in the case of Iraq thirty thousand members of ISIS families. Now a lot of those are children. So let's leave aside the children because children are children. But if you take the adults in those families, the women, for instance, a lot of them do still believe in the ideology, there is nothing that has changed their minds since then as for the foreigners. You know, a story I hear over and over and talking particularly to these foreign women is I didn't know what I was getting into. I don't understand Syria. I married. The sky might boyfriend told me to come. So those ones seemed to have had an awakening. And those are certainly the ones that want you to know they've had an awakening the, you know, I think we also have to realize that there are lots of those people in detention in these camps who are not talking to us because they believe were infidels because they still believe in the ideology and in the coun- recently in L hall camp, which now has more than seventy thousand people in it in northeastern Syria, some of the people running the camp told me that there are new arrivals all the time. And it's those new arrivals who are the most still radicalized that they've been saying in some cases that the head of ISIS abo- becquerel daddy ordered them to come to the camp that they will stay in the camp. But then Baghdadi and ISIS will take them out of the camp. So there is no one who does not believe that ISIS is still a threat those ones who will. Speak to you. Then what do they want to happen now, especially the ones who have come from outside, Iraq and Syria have the old discovered. A sudden enthusiasm for democratic G prosise. Yes. Well. It depends where they come from. So there was a group of women. I met Dutch women they want to go back. And some of them said we understand we broke the law. We want to stand trial. But it's our children were worried about they wanted their children to be handed over to their relatives. In many cases. These are very small children toddlers, really young the others. It depends again depends entirely where they come from a I met quite a few women from eastern Europe. And there was a Chinese woman. They are all terrified of being sent back to their countries because they believe they would be executed not only that they're even afraid to contact their relatives because even by contacting their relatives their relatives would end up in jail. They say so the ones who come from western countries tend to want to be sent back there. But as you know, the problem is these countries don't want to take them. They don't want to take them mostly for two reasons. One is it's really not clear how much evidence would carry over. If they were to stand trial in their own countries. And then the other thing is they could actually pose a danger if they can't be put on trial. They can't be prosecuted for things they may have done here. Then they will have to let them go, and they will be free in their own countries. So it's a dilemma you mentioned that there is some enthusiasm among the Syrian Kurdish leadership for the idea of an international tribunal have they talked at all about what they see as the scope of that they can't realistically intend to put tens of thousands of people on trial on the they can't know and by its very nature and international tribunal would have to be set up by the international community. And there isn't a whole lot of appetite for that for one thing the Kurdish leadership here is not internationally recognised. That's a big deal. And then these things will take years and years. There has been a move to send some of these fighters in any case from countries that don't want the. Back to Iraq and Iraq can prosecute them. If they've also been in Iraq because a lot of these fighters did come from Iraq from Mosul the foreign fighters, even when they were driven out of Mosul, they came to Syria, so they could be prosecuted in Iraq.
