THE HOUSEWIFE WHO DRANK AT HOME

"She hit her bottles in the clothes. Hampers and in the dresser drawers. She realized what she was becoming in a she discovered she had lost nothing and had found everything. My story happens to be a particular kind of woman story. The story of the woman who drinks at home. I had to be at home. I had two babies when alcohol took me over my bar. Was my kitchen my living room my bedroom the bathroom and the two hampers at one time admission that i was and an alcoholic meant shame defeat and failure to me but in the light of the new understanding that i have found in a i have been able to interpret that defeat and that failure and shame as seeds of victory because it was only through feeling defeat and feeling failure the inability to cope with my life and with alcohol that i was able to surrender and accept the fact that i had this disease and that i had to learn to live again without alcohol i was never a very heavy social drinker but during a period of particular stress and strain about thirteen years ago i resorted to alcohol in my home alone as a means of temporary release as a means of getting a little extra sleep i had problems we all have them and i thought a little brandy or a little wine now and then could certainly hurt no one. I don't believe when i started that. I even had in mind. The thought that i was drinking. i had to sleep. I had to clear my mind and free from worry. And i had to relax but from one or two drinks of an afternoon or evening. My mounted and mounted fast. It wasn't long before i was drinking all day. I had to have that wine. The only incentive that i had towards the end forgetting dressed in the morning was to get out and get supplies to help me get my day started but the only thing they got started was my drinking. I should have realized that alcohol was getting hold of me. When i started to become secretive. In my drinking. I began to have supplies on hand for the people who might come in and of course happened. Empty bottle wasn't worth keeping. So i finished it up and naturally had to get more in right away for the people who might come in unexpectedly but i was always the unexpected person who had to finish the bottle. I couldn't go to one wine store. And look man honestly in the face and buy a bottle as i used to do when i had. Parties and entertained did normal drinking. I had to give him a story and ask him the same question over and over again. Well now how many will that bottle serve. I wanted him to be sure that i wasn't the one who is going to drink the whole bottle. I had to hide as a great many people in a have had to do. I did my hiding in the hampers and in my dresser drawers and we begin to do things like that with alcohol. Something's gone wrong. I needed it. And i knew i was drinking too much but i wasn't conscious of the fact that i should stop. I kept on my home at that. Time was a place to mill around in. I wandered from room to room thinking drinking drinking thinking and the mops would get out and the vacuum would get out. Everything would get out but nothing would get done toward five o'clock helter skelter. I'd get everything. Put away and try to get up on the table and after supper i'd finish the job and knocked myself out. I never knew which came first the thinking or the drinking. If only i could stop thinking. I wouldn't drink if only i could stop drinking. Maybe i wouldn't think but they were all mixed up together. And i was all mixed up inside and yet i had to have that drink you know. The deteriorating effects the disintegrating effects of chronic wine drinking. I cared nothing about my personal appearance. I didn't care what i looked like. I didn't care what i did to me. Taking a bath was just being in a place with a bottle where i could drink in privacy. I had to have it with me at night. In case i woke up and needed that. Drink how i ran my home. I don't know. I went on realizing what i was becoming hating myself for it bidder blaming life blaming everything else but the fact that i should turn about and do something about my drinking.

Sell Almost Anything You Can Dream Of with Russell Brunson

"Russell. Say what's up to fire nation and sheer something interesting about yourself. That most people don't new what's a fire nation All right the first thing. I can think of the people probably know about me. Is that like i am. Deathly scared of cats have not touched the cat in over twenty years The last time. I touched a cat and mice will shut for three days and i have not touched. A cat said the my in-laws are cat people. So i literally go their house and i stand there and don't touch it. Well i can tell you. Can kate sorry. It was actually a campus and she was growing up. Her family always had one or two times. And i was the opposite. I was always a dog person. Springer spaniels my whole life and finally during quarantine because we used to travel all the time. In fact you. And i are supposed to be out in fiji recently. We weren't able to do that and we had a bunch of trips are ozzy cancelled. So i finally able to convince kate to get a dog with me so we now we have got him when he was two months old. But now we have a seven month old golden doodle. His name is gas and one reason why you'll love him russell's because he's hypoallergenic no shedding which was what i needed. Not because i was allergic to anything but just like. That's the one thing i don't like about. Dogs is the shedding. So gus is the perfect dog. I love him to death and follow me on instagram. If you want to see. Some great dog gussied dog video so russell as i t's earlier during the introduction. We're talking today about how to sell almost anything that you can flip in dream of and you have helped so many people do just that for so many years. I've been an avid click. Finals promoter and user for years and years and years now multiple to calm clever wars. All the nine yards. I mean i absolutely love. Click finals. I wanted to bring you back on. Because you've done something recently that again you just stay out of the curve. You continue to revolutionize stuff for so long like webinars were just boring like slides and then they have a talking head from time to time. There's an like and then you came out with this webinar. It's so spectacular because it's not lake. It's like this. Unbelievably new groundbreaking knowledge. I mean it's such important fundamental knowledge that you need to know fire nation. But it's how he delivers it with the stories and then the cartoons and the videos in the mix and the mismatch like i literally russell went back and watched one of my webinars and i hate it now. Like i hate my webinar. Because you so. I'm gonna follow your lead. My man and i'm going to mix up fire nation. Ill fire dot com slash. Click webinar just go over there. Watch this webinars free. It's amazing will up your game and it will help your business for the content but also for the presentation style you fire dot com slash click webinar and the title is the weird almost backwards. Funnel secret that is currently being used by underground group of entrepreneurs including myself to sell almost anything you can of so russell. Break that down for us. Yeah definitely so the group of entrepreneurs these are like my tribe. My people right. We call ourselves funnel hackers and a lot of people like don't turn means initially and for us. It's like all about trying to reinvent the wheel and figure things out from the beginning. It's like let's look and see what's working currently right and so looking at other people's funnel people's businesses and looking at as a model then create something new and unique outlook and i think that When i got started in business online. I thought i had to figure everything out. I was trying to be creative all the time and it really really struggled until i said that there's people who've been doing this for a long time and they're just trying to reinvent the will let me see what they're doing and what are the tweaks and changes. I can get my product or my service into the structure that they've proven his work and you know this is well anyone in in the online business like the art and the science right in the science doesn't change the framework. It's like the frame of a house right like that's that that doesn't change and so it was figuring what what's the framework. What's the funnel the things that we know work in the process that works the price points at work and then on top of that we. We've in our own art. Our own products our own messaging. And when you figure out how to do that we call funnel hacking. That's the that's the secret and now we've had people doing this. We have over one hundred hundred and twenty one hundred thirty thousand active members and click finals right now. We see it happening in every market in the world which has been so cool because it was kind of a new concept you know five or six years ago now. We're seeing it happen everywhere now. Literally i mean. I lost entrepreneurs on fire eight years ago and that didn't exist and i remember you coming and bringing of this phrase this term. You know this lifestyle back five six years ago. And i've washed it you know. Do it has done over the past five or six years. It's been absolutely amazing and fire nation. What we're doing next. We're going to go through the three main themes that russell talks about throughout the webinar. Now of course we're not gonna go into super depth on these because you're gonna watch the webinar for that and it's free and it's visual and it's beautiful and it's breathtaking at times like you need to watch for that reason but russell let's start with funnel hacking and how to ethically steel over a million dollars worth of funnel hacks from your competitor for under a hundred dollars. That's one benjamin taken away. Yes so this is something. I the concept i the principal i learn. Issue tony robbins. Who's a friend of both of ours. And tony said if you want to be successful in life you need to model those who are already successful and all parts of life. I like in in sports in business and everything and And so for me. I remember i was at an event and i heard this guy Showing one of his finals one time to talk about what they did how they did it and like all the money they spent all this stuff and i remember looking at that and i was like i'm never going to figure those things out and then for moment i stop and say what a minute. What if what. If i if i just looked at what he did and it looked like he had a product here and there was up selling the down so this was the process took someone to where if i took that again that framework and then i just weaved in my own product mountings into it and so i was kind of the idea. We'd have a name for back then. I would call frontal hiking today. But i i use that. And so i. This is before click funds probably seven or eight years ago is launching supplement at because i love supplements supplement. I know how to do it. So i found somebody who had to supplement funnel i looked at the structure. They'd proven would work to sell supplements. And i took that structure. I built my own supplement. You know put my own copy. My own words mount phrase by us use. There's is kind of a model like a business model. This is what we need to do and And we launched it and it blew up and we got huge and what was cool about it was. i didn't have to go and do tons of market researcher. All these things. All i had to do is literally go to the person's funnel and buy their product like put my credit card on my wallet spent a hundred bucks. I bought the product. And i was able to see everything right what we see some his website or a page. And it's like the tip of the iceberg but by paying buying the person's product and bunnell hacking him as able to see oh after they after someone buys a product sell them with this and they down so at this and this is the process. After i saw the process look like as the model that for my supplement. And that's how we were up to grow supplement company

Trump tries to leverage power of office to subvert Biden win

"Trump sought to leverage the power of the Oval Office today in an extraordinary attempt to block President elect Biden's victory as criticism mounted that his efforts to subvert the results of the 2020 election. Could do long lasting damage to democratic traditions of the country. Trump summoned a delegation of Republican lawmakers from Michigan, including the States, Senate Majority Leader and House Speaker intern A parent extension of his efforts to convince judges and lawmakers in the state Set aside Biden's 154,000 vote margin of victory and grant him trump the state's electors. His efforts to override the public's will extended to other battleground states that Biden carried as well. It all added up to an unprecedented attempt by a sitting president to maintain his grasp on power or in failure to de legitimate ties, his opponents victory in the eyes of his army of supporters.

Why the Trump campaign continues to fight election results despite court losses

"The presidential election. President Trump lost the election. Counties and states are starting to certify results of Biden's victory. The Trump campaign continues to mount legal challenges, and they continue to fail. But even though his defeat is clear, the president refuses to concede we want to talk more about why and what it might mean for the country. NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson is here for that. How? Tamara? Hi, Mary Louise. The president insists he is challenging the results because he really believes he won. Really, With all the facts pointing otherwise. Is there more to this? I think there is more to it. Donald Trump's brand is about being a winner about never, ever losing. Remember, he's always come out of every loss, like his bankruptcies or failed businesses. Somehow making himself look like a winner. This election is the biggest, most public losses ever suffered. So the stakes for his political future and his ability to continue to monetize his brand are very high. There is a kind of method to his madness. He needs to create this false narrative to be able to walk off the stage without admitting he lost so he can maintain political viability, maintain a firm grip on the base of the Republican Party, especially in case he wants to run again. But there are also real consequences to that. He's his refusal to concede defeat or to accept a peaceful transfer of power to spread these false conspiracy theories are hurting Americans confidence in the most basic element of our democracy, which is free and fair elections. We know from polling that growing numbers of Republicans feel that believed that Trump won the election and it was stolen from him. Another Syrian, making the rounds that I want you to speak to more some of the president's defenders. In fairness, Even some conservatives who don't seem too particularly like President Trump. They have argued Look, Democrats never accepted Trump as the legitimate president. Democrats in their hearts didn't really except the 2016 outcome. This argument goes so. So what is the difference? Moralize and what is the difference? I think there is a difference. He has a absolute right to contest. This is long as he wants in the court. But what happened in 2016? Hillary Clinton did not challenge the legal outcome of the election. She called Trump and conceded even before the networks had called the 270 electoral votes for him. She did win the popular vote, but no one says that Trump didn't win under the rules. Of how America elects its president. He it was the legitimate president. They might not a liked him. He lost the popular vote. But that's different than what's happening now, you know, Trump allies. Even down to some local Republicans in Wayne County, Michigan, actually resisted certifying the results before reversing themselves. Last night, they appeared to be making actual attempts to undermine legitimate ballots cast in Heavily democratic, racially diverse cities. So a lot of Republicans are now saying, Hey, you've got to put up or walk it. Walk away. Don't let the perception settle that you're a sore loser, just trying to overturn a fair election. What is it? Steak for the president here for Donald Trump personally. I think there's a lot of steak, you know, he has mused privately about running in 2024. He's setting up a super PAC that would fund his expenses for that. There also are a lot of consequences for the Republican Party. Is it tries to chart its future? Put aside, all the other Republicans want to run in 2024, which they really can't do? As long as he's out there, saying he might But you know the debate about what is Trump is imposed. Trump has been going on since 2016. But it can't really continuous long as Trump is on the stage. You know, there's that old country music song. How can I miss you when you won't go away? And right now the Republican Party stands for whatever Trump wants at a given moment, But there are also some perils for Trump himself continuing to aggressively contest The results of this election and his allies have been saying Don't look like a sore loser. They're charting a path for him to coming back in 2024, which includes a graceful concession, cooperating with Biden may be giving a farewell address with a kind of MacArthur resc pledge. I shall return you will in the more immediate future. Look ahead with us because one way or another January 20th is coming. President elect Biden will become president Biden. Do we know quite what to expect from President Trump at that point? No, we don't. There are a lot of questions. We don't know what it's like to have an ex president who's not quietly off the stage. That's kind of the final Democratic norm for presidents to gracefully give your successor a chance, a sign of respect for the voters and the outcome of the election. But we have every reason to believe that Trump will be tweeting every day. Even as a private citizen, he might create his own streaming digital platform to as an alternative to Fox Baby who launches 2024 campaign. We don't think he'll weigh in in a detailed way on policy debates, but he may try to maintain his dominance in the media and dominance in the media. NPR's Mara Liasson, Thank you for your reporting.

History of the COVID vaccine

"The promise of a covid. Nineteen vaccine is immense. But don't underestimate the challenges ahead. Nine long years elapsed between the isolation of the measles virus in nineteen fifty. Four and the licensing of vaccine. The world waited for twenty years between early trials of polio vaccine and the first american license in nineteen fifty five marvel then at how the world's scientists are on course to produce a working vaccine against sars kobe to the virus that causes covid nineteen within a single year. And not just any vaccine. The data from a final stage trial unveil this week by pfizer and biontech to pharma companies suggests that vaccination cuts your chances of suffering symptoms by more than ninety percent. That is almost as good as for measles and better than the flu job with an efficacy of just forty to sixty percent. Suddenly a dark winter there is hope not surprisingly phases news on november ninth rouse the markets bulls investors dumped shares in florax peleton tech firms which have all benefited from the corona virus and instead switched into firms like disney carnival and international consolidated airline's group. Which will do well. When the sun shines again the oecd. A club of mainly rich countries reckons that global growth in twenty twenty. One with an early vaccine will be seven percent. Two percentage points higher than without there is indeed much to celebrate. Pfizer's results suggest that other vaccines were worked to over. Three hundred and twenty are in development. Several in advance trials most liked pfizer's focus on the spike protein with which sars covy to gains entry to cells. If one vaccine has used this strategy to stimulate immunity of us probably cantu pfizer's vaccine is also the first using a promising new technology many vaccines prime the immune system by introducing in fragments of viral protein. This one gets the body to make the viral protein itself by inserting genetic instructions contained. In a form of our anna. Because you can edit aren. Hey the vaccine can be tweaked should the spike protein mutate as it may have. Recently in ming this platform can be used with other viruses and diseases possibly including cancer on original focus so celebrate how far biology has come and how fruit fleet can manipulate biochemical machinery. For the good of humanity. There will be time later to worry about how that power might also be abused and celebrate the potency of sciences at global endeavor drawing on contributions from across the world. A small german firm founded by first generation. Turkish emigrants has successfully. Worked with an american multinational company headed by greek chief executive yet despite the good news too big question out about the characteristics of the vaccine and how fast it can be distributed. These are early results. Based on ninety four symptomatic cases of covid nineteen from among the forty four thousand volunteers. Further answers must wait until the trial has gathered more data. It is therefore not clear whether the vaccine stop severe cases or mild ones or whether it protects the elderly whose immune systems are weaker nor is it known whether inoculated people can still cause potentially fatal infections in those yet to receive jobs and it is too soon to be sure how long the beneficial effects will last clarity will take time in the next few weeks. The trial should be declared safe. Though further monitoring of the vaccine will be needed. The company's predict that immunity will last for at least a year. The ninety percent plus efficacy so high that this vaccine may offer at least some protection to all age groups while the world waits data it will have to grapple with distribution will be in short supply for most of next year. Although our any jobs may prove easier to make it scale than those based on proteins pfizer's requires two doses. The company has said that it will be able to produce up to fifty million doses in two thousand and twenty one point three billion next year. That sounds a lot but america alone has over. Twenty million first responders medical staff care homeworkers an active duty troops perhaps a fifth of the world's seven point eight billion people including two thirds of those over seventy risk. Severe covid nineteen. Nobody has ever tried to vaccinate an entire planet at once as the effort mounts. Ge's medical glass and stuff could run. Short worse visors shots need to be stored at temperatures of minus seventy degrees celsius or even colder far beyond the scope of your local chemist companies building an ultra cold chain but the logistics will still be hard. The vaccine comes in batches of at least nine. Hundred and seventy five doses. So you need to assemble that. Many people their first shot and the same crowd again. Twenty one days later for a booster. Nobody knows how many doses will be wasted so long as there is too little vaccine to go round. Priorities must be set by governments. A lot depends on them getting it right within countries and between them modeling suggests that if fifty rich countries were to administer two billion doses of vaccine that is eighty percent effective they would prevent a third of deaths globally if the vaccine was supplied according to rich and poor countries population. That share would almost double. The details will depend on the vaccine. Poor countries may find ultra cold chains. Too costly the domestic answer to these problems is national committees to allocate vaccine optimally. The global answer is kovacs. An initiative to encourage countries equal access to supplies ultimately though the solution will be continued work on more maxine some might survive in commercial. Refrigerators of those will work. Better on the elderly still others might confer longer protection require a single shot or stop infections as well as symptoms all those that work will help increase apply. Only when there is enough to go around. We'll anti vaccines become an obstacle early. Reports suggest the jap causes fevers and eggs which may also put some people off. The good news is that an efficacy of ninety percent makes vaccination more attractive. The next few months will be hard global recorded. Death rates of surged past their april peak. Governments will struggle with the logistics of axon nation. America is rich and it has world class medicine but it risks falling short because the virus is raging there and because the transition between administrations could lead to needless chaos and delays squandering lives.

"Deeply lined mountains reminded me at every turn of the faces of elders watching as if from another dimension. I imagine them gazing down patiently pityingly at the human realm with all its swift phases, all of its blindness, all of its quarrels. Bias alert. My sense of how humanity was small and leading in comparison to the black. Hills. Rock formation was powerfully amplified by my experience of Mount Rushmore. With so much to be revered in the landscape itself. How was it? Someone's impulse to say you who look at us? We Americans are just as important as all this ageless nature stuff. I had not expected to feel that way. I had expected to feel aw at the scale of the sculptural enterprise. But the four great men carved into the mighty rock felt somehow puny. Inside the Mount Rushmore Museum I learned that the artist responsible for Mount Rushmore was guts in Borg limb a plaque described him as involved in local politics. A museum guide explained that while not an official member of the Ku Klux Klan bore glum was associated with its members and involved in its politics. It is difficult for me to dissociate my personal feeling that Mount Rushmore is an unnatural human manifestation in an otherwise autonomous and coherent national landscape. From my personal opinion that racism is an unnatural and immoral human disruption of the natural order this is just one way. Racism distorts our view of ourselves and one another. Today's poem is Mount Rushmore by Dante Clark In. The nineties drenched and kids stink running around with Matthew.

That's about seven thousand dollars today president grant cleaned he feared for the safety of the White Americans. But they were the ones encroaching on the natives promised land. Ultimately. Grant just wanted a reason to declare war against the indigenous people. And he founded devious way to force them off of their ancestral home. In the winters, the Sioux camped in yellowstone and powder river valley in Wyoming. These locations had better hunting grounds but in December eighteen seventy five president grant ordered the tribes to return the black hills reservation immediately. He knew that this was impossible during the harsh winter. And it could lead to starvation once the native people refused the order grant and his troops felt they had grounds to attack they plan their ambush for the next summer but the native Americans had secret Intel. In late spring the Sioux had their annual Sundance. The ritual included an offering of prayers to the great spirit meant to elevate the tribe higher spiritual plane. During the ceremony Lakota tribal leader sitting bull experienced a divine vision. Later sitting bull described what he'd seen soldiers writing upside down into camp, falling off their horses and dying before they could attack. He added that none of their bodies had ears because white men never listen. Sitting Bull's vision came to pass in June eighteen, seventy six.

The next month President Grant presented a new treaty again at called for the native Americans to give up the black hills grant didn't allow any tribesmen who had fought in the battle of the little bighorn to sign. and. If any approved signatories refused they no longer receive food and provisions from the government which many tribes relied upon. The government also threatened to take all of their weapons and horses if they didn't comply. Essentially, the Sioux had two options hand over the reservation or starve. Even, so only one tenth tribes signed the treaty which Congress swiftly approved. Bats far fewer than the three fourths legally required for the measure to pass over the next twelve years, the government forced to sue to evacuate the black hills.

He said these directions represented a deeper understanding of love kindness and wisdom. The same qualities you might find in a grandfather rushmore is guy didn't know any of this. So he told the wealthy mogul, the mountain had never had a name. Then, the guide proposed they call it Mount Rushmore in this lawyers meaningless honor just like that.

Has Been pouring over every single one and realizes that this person has a very insider view on all of the village board meetings. This person is also very concerned about the Foxconn. Deal and this person says a lot of very nice things about President David Group. Is Pro debut degree definitely pro Dave degroot over time that kind of gave them away. And could person who's just Dave degroot? Absolutely could be although the person who the person actually. Has To know quite a bit about Dave degroot. Kelly said the years before all this she sirri Dave's comments on the website of their local newspaper. So she feels as if she can recognize his writing I ask Dave about it. There's this website called. Let's make a better mount. Pleasant. It was like an anonymous person who's posting things about Kelly. Gallaher and Kelly has a theory that that you the village president so I just wanted to ask you is not me and. If she has a problem with hate websites and all that she might want to look internally a little bit because I think her her blog of better mount pleasant is horribly misnamed. Take a close look at it. There's nothing positive or better about it. If she believed catch with in advertising, it should be called a negative mount pleasant. The local police investigated and they couldn't figure out who was behind this blog now. Despite between. A Better Mount pleasant and let's make a better mount pleasant. It was happening during the time that was the most precarious for the Foxconn deal all these officials from the state and like nearby communities there at the village meetings. And so Kelly comes up with this plan. X. Keller. Who wishes to speak about the mount pleasant hate website. And so what I began to do was every village meeting I brought in whatever posts had been posted on it and I read them out loud the author as you know who I believe is village president to group. You to know that my husband of thirty years who he calls dimwit because his last name is dim lower is jealous of Sarah. Huckabee Sanders a real decent American woman not a vicious vacuous loser like me. He also believes the village hall is being rented out by a group of Communist. This weekend at is our leader. The president. Once again, I ask you to seek help and treatment. Your website frightens my family and friends, and it's weird. Remember there are all these bigwigs here for these foxconn meetings and basically Kelly is accusing Dave of writing all this crazy stuff and she's using it to so doubt in this whole process. Even if you do not like. Me The person who wrote in published these insults for his own twisted entertainment has destroyed all trust and cooperation and a village on the brink of enormous business development and financial responsibilities. How did they respond? He said nothing. He just he said nothing nothing at all. The public has a chance at the beginning of the meetings for three minutes to say whatever is on their mind. You know frankly, I don't care whether they want to. Share their thimble collection with me or or You know talk about you know football game worked out or IF THEY WANNA sing revolution number nine backwards I don't care as long as they get it done in three minutes. It turned out. The reward for Dave suffering those three minutes speeches was he won Kelly lost she wanted the town to get to see the deal before it was signed but that did not happen by October twenty seventeen. So this is six months after they'd I gotten that Foxconn RFP Dave and his team have finished putting together their best offer to lure foxconn to mount. Pleasant. And foxconn says, yes, the two sides do group handshake and how did you feel? Relieved. AB absolutely relieved. and. I had a keep my mouth shut until the till till the announcement was made and it was kind of a pins and needles moment for the next couple of weeks us. Is the handshake. Really a good handshake does this really really going to happen and within days afterwards you know we were very very much assured that yeah, it's it's coming to Mt Pleasant Mt. pleasant is going to become the epicenter of Wiscon- Valley. That's a cool feeling. Dave degroot gets to do his own press conference. It's like a mini version of the White House conference against his big white backdrop. That's as we seen county welcomes Foxconn say it with me loud and proud three two one what a day to be from Wisconsin. Thank you. So is a day for all of us to celebrate. And I'd like to start by thanking President trump for his leadership. It wasn't that long ago when then candidate trump needed very bold promise to bring manufacturing back to the United States. The Art of the deal. and. Here's what we have before us today ten, billion dollars, of investment. Twenty million square feet of industrial build out. Thousands and thousands of very well paying jobs. Increasing our middle class. It's everything that you could ask for. foxconn is coming to mount pleasant. It's official sort of at this point the village has a handshake, not a finished contract and nobody in the village knows the exact details of how this going to work like what Foxconn will deliver to the town and what the town will give away in exchange and everybody wanted to know those details including me because there was something about this whole deal that had just never made sense to me, which is why would foxconn want to come to America and what would they want with Mount Pleasant The.

"Wants to know like what is this possibly? To big thing is going to be an Amazon warehouse, a Tesla plant, and they just cannot get village government to say anything and then one day they get the news not from townhall not from Dave degroot. But from the president of the United States is a great day for American workers and manufacturing and for everyone who believes in the concept and the label made in the USA. Trump at the White House announced that a major company is coming to Wisconsin. And that company is Foxconn Code a world leader. In manufacturing for Computers Communications and Consumer Electronics one of the truly great companies of the world will deal. The trump is announcing right now is not at all done none of the details have actually been hashed out nothing assigned but nobody in the village knows that and they immediately have all these questions. If they've heard of Foxconn, what they know is either, this is a company that makes iphones or that they're notorious for the way they treat their factory workers thousands of Chinese. Workers staged a one day strike Friday at the Foxconn factory known for poorly treating workers who helped make apple products such as the IPHONE APPLE CEO, Steve Jobs says he's very troubled by a string of suicides at Foxconn fatigue and boredom are common in any factory but this one is surrounded by suicide that they are everywhere when these stories came out years ago Fox comes reputation this country was damaged like it's still the thing they're known for, but in the rest of the world. Fox is known for being this multibillion dollar company with these mega factories all over. Asia there's one that employs two hundred thousand people the entire population of Mount pleasant twenty, six thousand. And trump is saying, this is the company that's going to prove that you can bring jobs back to the US to make such an incredible invest. German girl put his faith and confidence in the future of the American. Economy another words if I didn't get elected, he definitely would not be spending ten billion dollars. Trump. Says the FOXCONN has committed to building an LCD panel factory somewhere in Wisconsin and the full project area would be massive like this would be one of the biggest factory compounds in the entire country. So back in Mount, pleasant, everyone's thinking that must be us. Some people are excited and other people like Kelly are wondering why would they come here and where are they gonna find all this space for that kind of factory and. So they take all these feelings to the place. They've always taking them village hall I come before the Board today to talk about the same subject everyone has been for the last three months Foxconn. As you can tell by my address, I am one of those who are probably going to lose my house but then again, no one knows where this is going right We've been built a wonderful hand here. We just got a player, right This is critical to guys like me operate small businesses. At Mount Pleasant we need this. You're a better less expensively. For Wisconsin to help build a robust economy that creates good paying jobs the biggest deal in America is being debated in this fluorescent lit small town boardroom. But weirdly, the people who are debating, it are the residence, the people who are nothing about the details, the village government the board just sits there not saying anything even after the trump announcement, they refused to confirm that the future development they're considering is in fact Foxconn. And you can hear the residents start to get frustrated. Now, I'm filled with anxiety and cry all the time I lay sleeps at night thinking of our home crumbling down around us last month my neighbors I have witnessed core soil testing wetlands, testing tons of helicopters and Sigma Group. Flying. Drones. Videotape you my children in the backyard while they play. Why don't you have a meeting for the land owners and homeowners in said proposed site and tell them the truth about what is going to happen and win instead of all of us hearing nothing. But rumors, the residents just don't understand like, why is this a secret? Why can't this village board tell the village people that? This is coming is somebody twisting your arm telling you can't talk about it. The boards evasiveness just starts to get absurd a few months after the trump ounce -ment president Dave degroot is part of a delegation that takes a trip to Asia where he visits a factory. This is not a thing that mount pleasant village presidents do. So when Dave comes back to mount pleasant, he's at the meeting and he says if there's nothing to report. Reports. President has nothing. Trustees. You'RE GONNA make. Make a report on your trip. I can't say a lot but yet, well, the trust the president did. Make a trip to Japan it was A. A trip for Fact Finding and. Doing a lot of. Fact checking and and whatnot relative to OSCEOLA. Development that we've got coming this way there was a lot of that than we want. If I, interview him for this story and he said, yes, we met and village hall. Hi, I'm David. Nice to meet you Shuki shrew thinks this must months after that period where the board was being so secretive and bizarre, and by this point I understood why they'd been acting that way. It's because Foxconn had made the negotiator sign NDA's and the board had been told not to say a word. Anyway Dave was very much in line with the man that I had seen in all of this village board meeting videos like he's a little reserved, his very hard to read. But when he started talking about that Japan trip, which was a visit to a Foxconn factory that makes LCD TV screens when he talked about it i. saw this whole other Dave degroot his eyes got wide and he smiling person with a wonderful secret I've seen the future it's coming to mount. Pleasant. What tell me Morocco what was it like? It was big was massive. There's there's robots that are absolutely genius everything is so out of scale out of scope with how we would recognize traditional manufacturing just a an amazing sight to see. Just felt like the new generation. Senior with. Dave has this whole vision of what is coming to Wisconsin it's like Silicon Valley, but in Wisconsin they're going to call it Wiscon- Valley Dave told me about the first whiff. He got of this unity. He just been elected village president. Literally, it was his first week on job when this letter arrives. I'm sitting in the office of Jenny trick receiving, county economic development person, and we're we're looking at a an FBI request for proposal from aben unnamed company. we didn't know who this was about but I'm but I'm looking at these numbers and they make no sense. The I'm like are we off by a few decimal points here? I these numbers are absolutely crazy. What were the numbers? At the time it was. six, link six, billion with a B. in economic development and tens of millions of square feet and at the time i. think it was like eight to ten thousand employees. I would be hired and we've never obviously we've never seen anything like that Dave, says, he immediately asked his researcher at the office like who is this and the guy said I think it's.

"From Gamma, this is. PJ. So there's this tiny town in Wisconsin called Mount pleasant populations just twenty, six, thousand people, village and life in Mount. Pleasant is usually is quiet as you'd expect. Their suburb of Racine, home of malted milk and the sight of some of America's largest cabbage farms. But that's the city now presents the suburb place were nothing really happens. Until last year when the village became the site of a completely unprecedented massive international experiment. Truth. Even Mundane. It's going to tell the story this fall. I went to pleasant to meet this woman named Kelly Gallaher. Hi. Halley. commanded she lives in his ivy-covered split. Level House my home is located about. A little bit over a mile from from Lake Michigan so. Did she say? It's really beautiful out here by receiving. It's like a very light blue almost like a Caribbean vibe. It's it's all about the light I think it's magical. I think. I even like how the lake looks on my gps. Like it that much Kelly has been here for thirty years and she used to be an arts educator. But now she's basically retired. When did you start getting involved in kind of more? I don't I don't know what to call it activism or just Kinda village. What would you call it well? What if there is a name? I think other people have a lot of names for for what I do but. Ones I I probably wouldn't care to repeat the polite name that Kelly's detractors might use for her is busy body. She's an extremely vocal participant and the town's local democracy and her main stage is this place called village. Okay. The hours upon us I would. Like to open the village board meeting, Order Religions. Village Hall which sits right next to the local white is where the residents of mount pleasant all gather twice a month with their village government to talk about all the local issues that need fixing through weeds this high in the yard of one of the vacation homes this. Hi. It's been vacant for I. Don't know how many years gale for years. It's been vacant. We're going to have some recommendations and numbers for the Lake Park Fluffy Rosen, which is very Army number one on our agenda, our softball game we had this last Sunday for the case athletics. That went over very well to I didn't get any reports of injuries so we're good. Pictures in the paper though in Racine County the mount. Pleasant. Village Hall meetings are famous very well attended. They actually taped the meetings and upload them to the website, and if you're like me and have watched every single wine, you will look forward to the moment when Kelly good evening my name is Kelly Gallaher. Her Red Hair Hoop earrings steps up to the Mike Lees Captain Brian. Smith. Collected thirty three, thousand, seven, hundred and fourteen dollars an overtime pay in addition to his salary vacation. Her tally is basically the local civics watchdog. A joint parks has had no minutes published since April two, thousand, fourteen almost every week she uses her allotted three minutes to make it very clear to the people in power that she has her eye on them is outrageous by mount pleasant standards. Hauled corruption and we intend to get to the bottom of it. Thank you. Thank you for weekly Sunshine and good share. That man who sounds very exasperated that is Dave degroot village president. He is sitting behind this big long table in this large office chair at the center of the screen, and he's flanked on both sides by his six village trustees. Dave. Runs this meeting David Kelly. Like each other they disagree on pretty much. Every single thing to do with the future of Mount Pleasant. Kelly has a sign on her front lawn that says David degroot must resign and David grew lives ten doors down from her. It's an intense block and Kelly told me that it got especially bad about a year ago when she was helping Dave's opponent in the village election. The previous March when he was running for office, he sent out a press release a basically accusing me of egging his house. Egging his house Yes yes. He filed a police report and suggested in his press release that I had been involved in the attack the political at an actual literal egg attack on his home, which the police report did not verify at all. In fact, it was the the described it as as teenagers and a single egg that was tossed on his driveway was hardly an attack I was not there. I only buy organic eggs which are far too expensive to throw it. Anyone's house let alone someone I don't like it was it was ridiculous. So it's fair to say that my relationship with with him was contentious I think he's a fool and a terrible per village president. something that really disturbed me. And like everything else in Mount. Pleasant. This fight to was aired out in the next village board meeting They didn't anybody else's house. So I'm assuming you know that I was specifically targeted I don't know if it was of a political nature or not. Up. Until the summer of two thousand seventeen, that is what meetings were like in Mount Pleasant Village Hall and then something much bigger arrived this decision the village had to make where the only thing that anybody could agree on was that whatever they chose it would completely transform their village Kelly says, the whole thing started around this time when a friend of hers who owns this large tract of farmland called and told her this really. Weird thing just happened and she said Kelly I some real estate people just knocked on my door and said, they want me to sign this option and I don't know what to do. How much were they offering her for the land I believe that she said that they were going to offer her thirty thousand dollars an acre for her land and is that number unusual for this area? Yes. Her acreage in it resale at the. Time would probably be three thousand to five thousand dollars in ten times. So this is this is a huge jump and it was so big you. She didn't even know what to do at the same time. Kelly is also getting calls from all her friends who work in the local government and they're saying something's coming in something's happening. It's really really big going to be enormous it's going to be giant everybody is assuming that it has. To be some kind of development that needs a lot of land you know and they're theorizing about what it could be, and of course, they're waiting anticipation for the next village meeting. Okay. We'll call the village board meaning Monday six, thirty pm on twitter, and so they show up a village hall and there's no announcement in fact, nothing is said about it at all and then president makes a motion to go into closed session rope loose. I it. We're close social the video cuts off right at that moment degree and the trustees walk out of the room. And the village residents sit there waiting for like an hour and a half until they come back Mr President emotion to go back into open session second. Back, open. the report out from village amount. Pleasant is we had an interesting conversation about the. potential future cooperation between the villages regarding future development future development. That's all grew. What say how did it make you feel? Well A. Working with elected officials are having friends who are elected officials. You know there's always that respect for with a can say and what they can't say, but I could just tell that it was extraordinary. You know there was something in there is there was an urgency in what they were saying that this was perhaps possibly too big. So everybody.

No. In the minds of these experts know in the mind of FAO G it's permanent I. Think now they're they're setting up for a war over masks and vaccine, and by the way Davis has done a great job on these numbers and talking about the hype surrounding this thing you know it's I don't want to minimize it because one hundred, sixty thousand people have died apparently..

When Car Companies Help In Times of Crisis

"Welcome to car stuff folks, thanks for tuning in I am. What of Your Host Ben? Bolan and I am Kurt Gerron and like many of us in the world today a Kurt and I are recording remotely from our separate bunkers tower. Good Pal, the Walter Jesse Pink Ben. Scott Benjamin couldn't make it today, but as well and sends his regards Kurt. I want to check in before we get started. How are you doing man? How how long have you been? In this lockdown stage, I guess about three three and a half weeks now they've been well the. Just hanging in there like many people out there. How about you been I've been you know I've been doing pretty well. Ev- actually have actually taken the habit of just getting out on the road just to get out of the house. You know I'm not really I don't really have a reason to go anywhere. I don't have because I'm stocked up on everything I could need, but I've always loved road trips I. Finally got a reliable vehicle before all this stuff went down, and so for anyone familiar with the Atlanta area, our fair metropolis, usually as terrible terrible traffic and I have been driving around to eighty five, which is an interstate that encircles. Atlanta I've just been driving around it and it's A. It's a great drive. Dude, because there's never any traffic now. Is it used to be notoriously busy and choked up and now you can just zoom on by. I would say I feel like we do have to point out if you're listening and you're in an area where you have been told that you cannot take any. Non Essential trips then. Please abide by that to the best of your ability. But I haven't been stopped by anybody. You know I haven't been like hot, rotting or red lining anywhere, but it's good to get out there in nature I mean I. Don't know if if you all have been going on any hikes or anything. Oh, yeah, it's been very important for me at least for my sanity to get out there and enjoy. Some of the spring weather which I love so much. But running in my neighborhood and Going on walks and just trying to stay away from those purpose built pass because I hear that people are all over those these days for some reason, oh, yeah, yeah, it's it's real strange think I think we're learning. Just how much of a toll cabin fever can take on people? But as many folks have said not just in our country, but abroad in Australia in Europe in in Asia every country that's dealing with his current covid. Nineteen pandemic has set this at some point. We're all in this together and this guy you and I thinking about some tremendously impressive acts, both in the current day, and in the past, so Kurt a little while ago off air, you and I were were just. Kicking around ideas, just shooting the breeze and we started talking about how a believer conversation started when when we were talking about how Tesla the electric car company run by Elon Musk had pledged to start building ventilators to help with hospitals that were in short supply and to help patients who needed these medical devices so that they could get over the hump. Hump of infection, which can be, you can be quite dangerous. but of of medical ventilator is something that you wouldn't really expect a car company to build even one. That's a little bit more Sifi like Elon Musk. You know because he's known for his crazy Sifi ideas. Yeah, unless rewind several weeks ago when this thing was ramping up in the United States. Elon Musk came out on twitter and said the corona virus. Panic is dumb. That kind of rubs people the wrong way Perhaps what he was saying was that. Panic isn't necessarily a productive reaction. So what he is decided to do is to use some of the minds. He has working for him at Tesla to create ventilators. Spills can use because there's a high likelihood that has this virus progresses that there will be a need for ventilators throughout the country He has also been buying machines from other places where he. He can, he's been buying blessing truths of type than later known as the be Pat Yup machine and doctors in New York at Mount Sinai have been able to come up with a way to turn these into fully-fledged ventilators save put out a fifteen page instruction manual, and now other hospitals can use that manual took convert these types of machines over a two. Full on ventilators as well so all of this. Problem Solving and ingenuity is really exciting. In a time when there's not a lot of excitement to be had.

"mount" Discussed on The Amateur Traveler Podcast

"Post night your average traveler for people that are looking to go on and experience for a week. It's very very doable. But all the other routes our great as well but yeah I mean going back to preparing for the mountain. We want to step back there. The number one thing I think that intimidates people from climbing any amount in particular from thinking about climbing Kilimanjaro is for the preparation. Physical preparation what that looks like as well as this fear of the unknown or fear that they might not be prepared so I mean in in preparing for killing droids. It's really mile. Climb up and down so round trip and you do go up about. I WANNA say fifteen thousand feet in elevation. So you're you're gaining a good three to four thousand feet a day but you have five to seven hours of very slow climbing to do that and so really in preparing it for the climb. It's really more about being active being on your feet. The best way to prepare. And what I've done every time before I've climbed is every day getting out on my feet walk. Maybe a job. Maybe a hike for thirty minutes to an hour or even a couple times a week. And that's really really the extent. Maybe if you're not as consistently active in your life maybe you can plan a little bit more ahead into a little bit more go to the gym lift. Weights that type of thing. But it's really. It scares a lot more people than it. Should you know yes? It's a hard climb but really it's more about the duration being able to settle. Climb for several hours a day. It's a beautiful climb though and you say several hours a day. I know that one of the reasons that it takes five days is to give you some time to get used to the altitude. It isn't that you couldn't theoretically climb faster but at that that just wouldn't work for people. So how much of the day are you climbing except for the last day? We'll do that. Separately last day is is. That's the push that every other day you're climbing. Probably the equivalent of about four to seven miles just depends on the day and that shakes right around that same amount of time. I would say five to seven hours is typically how much you're climbing each day. It's not steep uphill actually slight incline a little bit downhill. Maybe flat maybe a few skeet parts but it changes so frequently that time two to really recover in a sense so let me break how the day goes so. Typically you'll wake up in the morning have around six thirty you get. The sunrise happens on the mountain. Usually normally wake up that time. You do breakfast and you set off you meet with your cruel you get ready to go and you set off around nine o'clock and then you'll hike for about three three hours. Maybe four and then have a lunch break. You bring a packed lunch with you. That's prepare for you by the team there and you get a nice break through the day and then usually the afternoon is a little bit less so to three hours of climbing and then you will reach the next camp well before sunset so you can settle in their beautiful beautifully set locations. You can enjoy the view and then restaurant before dinner. Which happens right after the sun sets so it's really a nice flow and that's every single day as you mentioned except the last day you can spend more days on the mountain. Five is is the minimum. You can do six. You can you seven people choose to do that to give them extra time to acclimate. Which really is the hardest piece of the mountain? You don't know how your body is going to take that high altitude like I said not dangerous but it can cause a headache or can be uncomfortable and is the reason why people don't make it to the summit. I was GONNA say not dangerous for most. If you're with a guide who can spot that you're having a problem and can get you down off the mountain quickly if you need to. It's really it's important to go with a guide and it's important to go with the team. That's very well equipped and prepared with oxygen. Usually the teams will have a dedicated doctor. And or guys that have been trained to understand symptoms and that way if something does come up one they can help decide okay. Is there medication lead or what action needs to be taken and if you need to get down the mountain and you can. But it's not like climbing Everest where there's GonNa be some year this story of Oji. We lost all. These climbers who it's different kind of situation than that is which is why I wanted to differentiate. It's not this but it's not completely safe either. From that point of view but there are ways to make it safe. I think it's the right thing to take away from that. So we have a post on amateur traveler about someone who did a solo trip to Tanzania and climbed Kilimanjaro and we had a negative comment because this is what she didn't do a solo climb. It's like well no she didn't. It didn't say that in the in the post but people were upset. But that is a very different experience that you're describing you're describing even if I went there by myself if I'm going on a climb with guides and with people who are actually carrying stuff for me. It's a very different thing than a solo. Climb which people do do you're not recommending it. It's technically not allowed to do that. On Kilimanjaro I mean people do do it or they get special permission. It is possible but it's not easy. Because mainly right the government of Tanzania who regulates. The park wants to make sure that everyone is safe. Wants to make sure that climbers continue to come. I BELIEVE LAST YEAR. They had a fifty thousand climber. So it's it's a mountain that many people love to experience and I think because of that they want to keep precautions in place so your guide has to check you win at the Mountain Register. You and a company you up. Kilimanjaro is a national park to. It's interesting so one of the appeals to climb Mount Kilimanjaro. Is You're actually climbing through four different climatic zones so you start in more of a jungle chromatic zone than you head up into the Alpine forest and then you go to the moorlands and then you hit the Tundra. So is very beautiful in that sense will. Let's actually back up here a little bit. So you F- lion. Typically to Kilimanjaro Airport. I'm assuming near Arusha which is also where you would base for a lot of these safari experiences in Tanzania which we've talked about at other times on the show about you mentioned the seren getty but also in Gorham. Goro Menorah Tearing Giri. A number of the different parks are also near Arusha. You I assume would recommend if you have two weeks. You don't just do them out and you do something else hundred percent. I would say you're going that far right. I mean some people only have a week to to travel indefinitely. You can conquer the mountain in a week and have an incredible experience but if you have two weeks we are going that far definitely recommend doing a safari in one of the four parks. That you just mentioned during Gary Like Manure Gordon Gore or starring. Bette man also. Zanzibar is not too far. What's what's unique about. Which is an island with beautiful beaches and a very different culture because it had more of the Arab influence they really can get Savannah High Mountains and beach in one experience which is very unique for a country to your points. Actually flying to Kilimanjaro International Airport. Which is located right outside. Moshi which makes a lot bigger than small airport but you can find. Fleiss going there and there's actually pretty great Europe. I'm surprised at how accessible that they've made it and then Moshi as the entry point for Kilimanjaro. The starting point is less than an hour away in Arusha which is about an hour drive from Moshi is the gateway to the ceremony for your safari experience with all. They're very very close we'll end. Would you do the safari experience before you climb the mountain and then fly home after you claim them out nor would you do it in the other order and I honestly don't know what you recommend for that I would definitely recommend climbing I and doing the safari after because a lot of people are really hyped to clean them out and so it's nice to hit the ground and do it and then you're probably be a little bit sore after a lot of lot of hiking and so being able to sit back in a safari vehicle and view wildlife? Friend had that experience for several days even three or four days after is perfect ending so I recommend doing after just because it does get time to rest. Relax the free Hop back on your international flight home get some of that lactic acid out so we fly into Kilimanjaro. We go over to Moshi I. We've got a night and then we start climbing and as you say you're climbing at first in pine forest. Yeah it's actually. I think they call it technically the rainforest so it's more of coca now jungle but very tropical lots of birds. You can actually spot monkeys there as well. That is the part that I have done. I've technically climbed killer Joe just not to the top. I was there on a trip with some people from a church and we were at a church in Kierra. Which is there on the foot of the mountain so up in that beautiful green area at all and then we're in the park at this point. We're doing our first day of climbing and be macy monkeys. What else's that I gonNA like? Yes it a first date for you enter through the gate and you're walking through the rainforest it's actually a pretty well clear area to walk and you have these beautiful trees tall tall trees that are actually blocking a lot of the sun. So you have really great weather mostly so really is like hiking under a rainforest canopy different than what you get. Amazon. But you can envision what. It's like very green beautiful bird noises. You pass a lot of waterfalls. You can spot monkeys. I think they do have a few other small. Rodents that you that you can see as well not cats but similar.

All the time at kqed.org with the help of our other colleagues at Cutie. There really is a lot there so check that resource out if you haven't yet all right on with the show. Mount Yobbo is the bay area's grandest landmark. It's often the first glimpse of home that you'll see after a long drive. It stands apart from other mountains nearby. Not just because of its prominence because of the legends. That surround it. The baby try believed the mountain is sacred that it is the central point of the world's creation were man was made. But it's a different story that caught the attention of Listener. Mark Isaac. I've heard that the spot on the earth from which you can see the most land not just ocean but actual land is the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro but that the summit of Mount Diablo comes in second. Is that true marcus legend so long ago? That can't remember where it came from. But he's not alone. Lots of you have heard this story and it does seem possible. Mount Yobbo is an isolated peak. It's a lot taller than everything else around it. So even though there are lots of taller mountains they might not have as big of you because other mountains get in the way from the top of Diablo you can see from the Pacific Ocean all the way across the state to the Sierra but second-biggest view in the world really. Today we're going to find out if Mount Diablo's view deserves so remarkable and accolade. I'm Olivia Allen Price. This is bay curious support for K. Q. E. D. comes from Sierra Nevada. Brewing family owned operated and argued over since nineteen eighty proud supporter of independent. Thought whether that's online over the air or in a bottle more AT SIERRA NEVADA DOT COM. Okay so we set out to learn if Mount. Diablo is in fact numeral dose on the list of places on Earth where you can see the most land reporter Assault Asana takes a winding road to find out. The mystery of the view from Mount. Diablo is a romantic one steeped in local legend to find out. If it's true I drove to the source itself. Six hundred feet arrive at your destination from the base of the mountain. It takes me about an hour to get to the top. Well took so long. Mount Diablo sits on the eastern edge of the Bay area in Contra Costa County. But you can see. It's double peak pyramid from most spots around the bay at three thousand eight hundred forty nine feet. The mountains view is second to none. Well it's second to one. Maybe we'll find out so the view and you come up. Here is really amazing. How it compares. To Kilimanjaro is up for debate. But I'm kind of partial to the view here from Mount Diablo and I think most people would come pretty amazed by what the view looks like my tour guide today is Sharon Peterson. Mount Diablo state parks interpreter. Which she says means her job is to tell the story of the park. Sharon takes me to the summit's viewing deck. She says the clear day. You can see forty of California's fifty eight counties from here as little as one percent of some of those counties but still this is where we walk out into the wind. I she points West so you can see the Golden Gate Bridge today. You could see both towers with the naked eye and if I give you the binoculars you can probably for sure. She whips them out and there. It is the Golden Gate Bridge Sixty miles away two towers peaking over round top in the Berkeley Hills. That's really really cool. Then we turned north and you can see the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers forming the Delta South. It's a sweeping view of the Diablo range and livermore pleasanton and finally east or through the haze we catch a glimpse of the snow-speckled Sierra rising above the Central Valley over a hundred miles away. And I heard that you can also see Yosemite from here on a clear day you can and with binoculars you can see Sentinel Dome. There is a rumor that you can see half dumb but it's actually blocked by one of the land features in between seeing it for myself. The site is so magnificent so magical that feels like. I'm looking down at a watercolor. The only thing that compares is the view from a plane. Maybe it's possible. The Myth is true. It's absolutely not true. The Mount Diablo has the largest view in the world. Except for Mount Kilimanjaro. Seth Adams is the land conservation director at Save Mount Diablo and he spent a lot of time myth. Busting the Kilimanjaro claim. I never quite believed it. It just didn't have the ring of truth to me because it's a small mountain and common sense would tell you the taller. The mountain the bigger view but considering the myth has been repeated hundreds of times. He says it makes sense. People would believe it. Seth trace the infatuation with Diablo back to the eighteen fifties and sixties when scientists like Hosea Whitney first geologically surveyed the mountain. That's Jose Whitney of Mount Whitney the tallest mountain in the Sierra Nevada. Jose Whitney road. It is believed that there are few if any points on the earth's surface from which so extensive and area maybe seen as from Mount Diablo the whole area thus spread out can hardly be less than forty thousand square. Miles the legend snowballed from there repeated over and over for decades through the end of world. War Two a time when people really start experiencing parks and mountains. Recreationally and Mount. Diablo became a Goto tourist spot. The Kilimanjaro Claims Circulated and travel guides and hiking maps by railroad companies and Auto Associations Even Contra Costa County described it as quote the world's greatest view more territory visible than from any point in the world but as visitors flocked to Diablo for the views entrepreneur side. Chance to make a buck. More than half of Mount Diablo was locked up. Successively by two big real estate land speculators both of them printed brochures by the thousands that includes the claimed amount of having the largest boasting that claim was a smart business. Move for one developer. In nineteen seventeen he had a dream of building. Thousands of homes on Diablo's western flank and those amazing views helped push his agenda forward. Eventually the developer went bankrupt and the deal flopped. But it was too late. The brochures had done their work. Oh you can definitely credit the brochures for spreading the misinformation. But it's just too good acclaim the largest few in the world right and understand that California was a promoter's dream which brings us to another promoter the entrepreneur Walter p frick who hired a publicist to help him spread the rumor. The Mount Diablo had the greatest view on earth especially as he built an eight foot beacon tower known as the eye of Diablo but frick was working with engineers from the standard oil company and they were skeptical. Someone for the first time said come on biggest view in the entire world so after that the nineteen twenty eight standard oil bulletin added a footnote to their brochure except for a point in Africa. Clearly being Mount Kilimanjaro. From their the legend shifted from Mount Diablo having the largest few in the world to the second largest it went on like this until nineteen ninety four when it was officially debunked by an engineer slash mountaineer. Who did the math? His name was Edward Earl but he went by the nickname. Seven point three eight nine zero five six zero nine nine math joke. She said I don't believe this. And so what I'M GONNA do is. I'm going to find the problem. And I'm going to calculate view sheds for lots of other mountains and see how they compare view. Shed is the area visible from a specific vantage point including land or water. Now Remember Whitney speculated Diablo's view shed was about forty thousand square miles but according to earls calculations it's actually between thirteen and twenty one thousand. That might still sound like a lot but from other Taller Mountains. You can see more than three times as much and even for a total non mathematician like me. It kind of makes sense. Mount Kilimanjaro is five times the size of Mount Diablo so diop blow couldn't possibly have a comparable view shed even if it is an isolated peak. He conclusively showed that Diablo View. Shed claim was bogus. But it doesn't really matter because the the claim had already done its work. Mount Diablo became famous became beloved. And as I said Mount Diablo may not have the largest view on the world but it certainly has the most extraordinary view in the world and looking out from the summit. It is extraordinary and luckily for us. Extraordinary can't be measured with math. Those reporter Assault Asana poor. Big thanks to mark. Isaac are question asker this week and hate.

"The hedgehog Kissing Sonic An elaborate but yeah the the character description of final fantasy six shadow. When he's introduced he goes would slit his momma for a nickel on like? Oh my God. He is the coolest person ever. What about you matter you? You haven't chimed in. Yeah Oh boy. Well I got to put Salmon's on on there which is just like Gimme right. That's just an easy slat failed. I probably throw Zeldin there as well. It's hard to pick a street fighter character that's what I've been sitting thinking Lanka's a favorite isn't left representative or clean-shaven a UH tough call probably like young Rio from the street by CHARRIOL. He looks great. Yeah I I it is what about Marcus Marcus. Fenix guys pick like middle aged. Marcus Fenix sees that I feel like solid snake. Snake should be should have some I've actually I've grown pretty partial to Arthur Morgan. I don't know if he deserves to be on there but I just wanted to shout at like I just really love Arthur Morgan. I think he's a great video game. I do and I have to shot out Cate Archer. I would want Cate Archer kid archer. I'm thinking of your favorite characters and that's definitely one of my favorite video Divers skybridge three hundred. I think would get consideration for me. Garrett's guilty Riviera. I think it would be a pretty strong contender Allie from the last of us. Yeah I think you would. It be like angry. Ellie or young. Angry Ellie TB determined. If she definitely definitely angry to along with villains. I think Kafka Mattie mention Sulforaphane and there's a good that's what we could do there could be to. Mount Rushmore. Is the villains rushmore. And there will be across the street from the highway would be in the middle and then you could look at either one and they'd be like opposed to one another and also they're all kissing. Yes yes well. There's some kissing happening on each of the mountains awesome. I'm GonNa read this next one here is Charlie and this is a long email so I just made it a bridge. Charlie writes even though I won't be able to play death stranding branding Jason's comments about playing death standing on the switch even playing breath of wild instead. Got Me thinking if you only have intendo switch. I'm one of those people. How could you approximate approximate the death stranding ending experience? Here's what I came up with one load breath of the wild to go to high rocastle find a metal bookcase in the library. Three some in Wolf Link Amoeba required for for using your magnesium through and bring the metal bookcase the designated parts of Jairo while we'll flank. Accompanies you you the bookcase Wolf link all have to make it to the destination to complete the package still livery. I really would like to see people doing this as a speed around or something and like Muslim. You dividends death death stranding death death of the wild death the wild. I would add that you need to sneak like you can't really get into fights like we're keeping this kind of stealthy. This is the first half dusting and then also once you make the delivery you then have to watch all of the cut scenes in breath of wild that are saved on your game back to back like he just wants them. Yeah so that isn't a question is it's just funny mail. Let's keep going Mattie your turn share so. This one's from Josh. Who says tell us about your dungeons and dragons tabletop? RPG journeys recently read any cool new adventure. Modules tried out. Roll twenty any new game sessions. Tell us please points points so I have an curried tabletop. RPG's while I play Table Games we've talked about starting D. session or some kind of role playing system session but we haven't so actually having been playing now I haven't I haven't so the big joke everyone makes is one hundred percent true. which is that once you have a when you have? The indeed group together becomes impossible to find times when you can actually get together because someone out of town this weekend and then someone else can't do it because they have a feta this again. It happens that my group Including drew Baldwin. Who is listening to this? Show right now. Avid split screen. Listen my split screen or my Dean D.. Group happens to include a few people who are actors and our teachers and have just kind of unorthodox hours notice just as a for instance they have the theatre group. I was like Oh yes fan outrage for these are my NYU friends. So honestly that's your answer so in other words I haven't played since July and then the other part of this occasion I've been the d. m. d. m. and it's been entirely me coming up with the story and campaign and everything so I- prep each session like spend a few hours putting in to put a few hours indeed session before we start playing and that itself is just like so tough with a newborn and other responsibilities so that's been tricky I wish there were ways like I just don't think it's the same to play online. It's just not. It does not equate. The sits does not create the experience of Plane D at a table with a group of friends That said I was just texting when my group and trying to make a session happen soon so hopefully I will have more experiences to share in the future. But I promise split-screen listeners that next Indiana Indiana. We'll talk about it on the show in some capacity. Yes anytime replanning tabletop game. I talk about it then here. It's not. It's not an elaborate secret. We're keeping from Josh. Trust Trust me we should play sometime. Oh my God okay Kirk. You're up okay. This letter is this email comes from connor who writes. I am a working musician in New York City and as the years have gone on working on the thing I love I find it harder and harder to enjoy music on its own I tend to avoid it during my free time as my brain cannot stop analyzing what I'm hearing Kirk. You're one of the most joyous people I've ever heard who makes music fulltime and still has the capacity to listen and explore and analyze while seeming to while seemingly retaining the absolute love for it. What would you say it gives you the ability? And Mattie Jason Do you have things in your life like this games or otherwise WII and have you been able to overcome this issue so kirk. Have you been elaborately faking. And you actually despise me. I have some thoughts on this. So for starters so I don't make music full time in that fulltime implies that that's if that would be the main thing I'm doing for income which isn't the case and I know musicians who do and I think it is a lot harder like what connor is talking about. If you're if you're playing gigging every single night playing everyday like you're writing music for all kinds of things like you spend your work hours making making music. It can get harder to kind of have that just listening for pleasure things so because I don't do that and I have this kind of I was trying to maintain a balance which is not always easy between like video games and talking about gains and writing and making music and talking about music teaching and all these different things like. It's all in that balance I think for me anyways and that let me come to music fresh and have that experience of listening to it and just really enjoying what's good about it but also I don't know I mean I. I love listening to music and I always have have. I think like being a catastrophe for eight years and not making a lot of music especially for kind of for a five year period there. It made me. There will be times where I would sit down down and just put an album on with headphones and I would be like emotionally overwhelmed a little bit by the music and by using it was by this feeling of fuck what am I doing. It's like this is the thing this is my thing like. This is the thing I do more than anything else and I think I can tap into that feeling now because of that a little bit like I've I've been thinking about this little lately so that's part of it too. I think there was a period of time where I wasn't doing nearly enough music and it made me appreciate it even more and so I still feel feel that a little bit and so I should try to share that with people. So that's just me but you guys run into this kind of thing with with anything. Yeah sometimes I feel like I've run into it with different things over the years. Here's where if you do something creative for work. It's weird you can. You really are changing. How you Orient Yourself against that thing? Whatever it is whether it's video games or like you know and I worked at the Mary Sue I'd have to watch? TV shows really quickly for work sometimes and like sometimes. That wasn't as pleasant as you might imagine. It would be or just other things where you just have to suddenly only engage with something for many hours and on a deadline. Anytime we're doing that you're really changing. How you feel about the thing and I don't have like a hot tip for dealing with that and it's also a very uncommon problem that doesn't really necessitate a hot tip because who cares unless you're a entertainment journalists but I would have to find find ways to re explore the thing from another angle like in the case of game? Sometimes I'll get sick of John Raya and I'll just be like. Oh maybe I hate games now because 'cause I'm so tired of games and I'm like what about this other completely different kind of game. That's surprising me and delighting in a way I never expected and then I'm like Oh yeah games James can be. This games can do this. I don't know if that would work for music exactly but it might like doing something really different and wearing something different with music and being like Oh yeah music is it can also be this. Music can do this. And that's exciting again. I don't know Jason Women you so for me. I have never actually gotten sick of video games. Never in my life which I think is shocking. True gave her really. I just I don't know I like I could play I could maybe 'cause I don't waste my time with games that that I'm not enjoying like I'm the I'll never show allo right. You don't like get assigned reviewing shitty game. That you game reviewer for a job when I was when I was freelancing back in the day I definitely slogged through some shitty games but even then when it was like my spare time I would just WanNa play something that enjoyed instead but the to answer connors question the thing in my life. It's like this is actually reading nonfiction and especially reading like creative nonfiction journalism or like any sorts of journalism. Where you're I I kind of like emceeing the sausage I know so much sausage is made and I'm always it's tough Where when someone writes this story and it's nonfiction and it's really good? I'm always just asking myself after every single sentence. How does the writer no? It's like how. How could the right or possibly know this and it ruins a lot of nonfiction for me because so much of nonfiction books are so heavily fictionalized or like made aid so creative based on the details and stuff like that like everything from Erik? Larsen's like the devil in the White City and all those other books historical book city rights to like bad blood led by John Kerry Korea-u which is a great book about theranos in that whole. That'll scam But that's another. It was a great book but I'm reading reading everything I'm just like there's no way the author could have possibly known this like he's just a putting the pieces together based on what he was told second hand and kind of creating a story out of that and point being seeing that when you have done what I do or when you've done what we do for so long it's very difficult to just read something uncritically. So that's that's the big big thing for me. Yeah it's the sausage is made with video. Yes when if you're like a game designer heard from a lot of people who make video struggle to have fun playing them with music. It's like if you make music all the time. It can be hard to remove that you hear what's going on and certainly when I hear attitude horn section or something. I'm like you know like I can't hear here. That like that happens or as writers were all writers. There's definitely the feeling of when you're reading reading takes on a different quality when you've done so much writing and then so yeah anything that you do the more you do it the harder it gets breaks as good if possible but if it's your job that can be tough so All right why. Don't we take a quick break. We'll answer a few more more questions before saying goodbye and we are back once again. Let's crank through a a few more listener. Questions shall we shall we shall. Here's Joe Joe Says Hey.

"I think of plenty of funny emails gotten from companies. I used to tell Jackson slack about how I wanted to write a post about all of the bitcoin plus e sports related emails. Because there's a surprising public relations confluence between those two topics. I often get emails from people who are like dubiously in the world of sports and dubiously mining. BITCOIN getting bitcoin trying to get other people to be involved in Bitcoin in some way to get a lot of fun emails about that which I guess I can't legally say they're scams investigated them but a lot of them are often seem very scary. Sling me 'cause there's kind of thing we're east. Sports is like a Buzzword for people and it's like he's sports it's just business. There's money and the same way that Bitcoin bitcoin. I don't know money and they kind of have that quality separate games used to just generally fall into that category but like now. They're sort of a known quantity and so e sports like the buzzwords is worth scam emails fall under and as a person who writes about. He's still sometimes I. I'm on a lot of those Melissa. Still funny emails. What are you advertising using? What is this email even saying? So there's that But also you know I'm a woman on the Internet and I've been writing about video games for like over ten years which is terrifying to think about and it it also means. I've gotten some incredibly dumb emails. I don't think they're very funny. But you know just bad stuff. I don't I don't it actually even think it's worth getting too but it's it's usually emails is what I would always get and I just I don't I don't leave my DM's on on anymore on twitter. I just put my email and my bio because I feel like that slows down the ability for people to there's an extra step you know what I mean which I think is a classic thing that women do online. But I don't know that's my hot tip. I guess Jason was the funniest stuff you well. Yeah I get a lot of stuff. I won't get into all the negative beauty of it turns into articles. Good well I get a lot of horrible horrible things which I won't get into. I actually have a fun anecdote a little more fun anecdote than and rather than get into the the drunken the Anti Semitism and the the more controversial. But here's a here's a fun story so a couple pull of weeks ago. Around the time that the POKEMON discourse was reaching its fever be I got an email. I think it started on twitter. I got a tutor. Dm from someone who said that He. He knew someone at the POKEMON company who wanted to reach out to me about like work conditions and morale and Blah Blah Blah Blah. Okay sure here's my secure email just my proton on email like Jason Jared Dot com for time DOT COM And he said Okay Great and then he reached out to me there and then this other person claiming to be from the Fuck Company. Reach out I to me there and then I started getting messages from both of them. Just like a string of nonstop messages. Then I started getting two hundred yards from other people on top of that there were just like hey did you hear from this person. Hey did you check that email. Yeah it started turning into like five different people at that point I was like okay. You know what red flags on top of red flags here. Because I've been hoaxed. Many people have tried to hoax me. Many many times about all sorts of things and one of the big red size is like if a lot of people like. If you're really whistle blower you're not gonNA tell L.. Anybody like it would be stupid of you. Tell a lot of people that you're whistleblowing so it would be unlikely for a bunch of other people then contact. This clearly was a scam so at some point I was like. Hey Hey can you give me your phone number. Let's talk on the phone or skype. And so he sends me a phone number and I look it up and just do some cursory internet searches and track track. It's a some guy like some random dude and his twitter account and like he's tweeting about him out and stuff and I'm like Oh my God seven some kid in his early twenties you just phone number and then so just just out of curiosity I didn't. I didn't WANNA call him just out of curiosity like Hey Usually what I do in this sort the thing is asked for corroborating evidence like at ninety badge or someone like that you have an ID badge firm York that you can send me. and He sends me this image and it's it's like pokemon remind company. Id Badge in Japanese right. So I've been learning Japanese as you guys know so I can read the basic like the Basic Kana letters letters. which are all you really need to read a name and so there's a name on the ID badge? And so I can read it and Google and it turns out at some veteran pokemon like company company. Employee has nothing to do with this guy. WHO's been there for like thirty years? So of course he posted his badge on the Internet. Somewhere and I was just like man. This is the dumbest scam that I have experience yet. And it's funny. I just got mad at the mall for wasting my time. There's nothing worse than people singer time deliberately but anyway that's that's the funds stuff I don't get into the negative stuff. Let's von many. You Wanna read this next email. Sure so this one's from Daniel who writes while trudging through my steam in backlog. I decided to give final fantasy. Thirteen another go after falling off it multiple times during a tough battle I was rudely reminded of the fact that if the lead character dies. Is You get a game over. This is one of my most hated mechanics and RPG's if I can give a phoenix down to an ally why can't they give me one it pulls me out of the game a bit when things just don't make sense like this. I can suspend disbelief that my party has magic powers but I have a hard time believing that if a particular party member goes down the others just give up and die to you. This leads me to two things. I'd like to hear your take on I. What are your least favorite game mechanics and gaming in general and second? Do you suffer from thinking about logistics. Dick's death stranding aside. That game sounds like logistics the video game and are technicalities to the point that it pulls you out of the experience. Oh Man Yeah. That's a terrible one in persona persona does the same thing. Yeah in the Persona Games. It's really fucking annoying because you'll just because they also have instant death spells. I was GonNa say it's just like unlucky. One key strike and then you lose an hour progress it. Yeah that's really annoying one One thing that really really bothers me. There are a lot of things that really bothered me as mechanics in games one of them. Is anyone listening to this. Show knows they're one of them. These days especially is lack lack of auto save and like like losing your progress. Allah Persona Five If you die in a battle just because I am so old and and so out of time. There's so many games that I just do. Not Have the patience. Replay an hour of any game so that is the thing that will most that is most likely to just like would make me stop playing something. What about you guys? Kirkwood isn't what have you. Yeah I think. Loss progresses a huge problem now and he's asking about game mechanics. which is like a little different than you know ban check pointing or or like unstoppable? Death cut scenes like into human or whatever wasn't that the one where the Valkyrie comes and takes you up to Holland it takes a minute and a half every time he died and so those are like bad things but bad mechanic I R. I don't generally like mechanics that make me lose progress like if you you die you begin to get worse. This can be a thing in destiny bounties for example when you go into the crucible and kill people but if you get killed your progress meter goes backwards grants can just be. That's a really potent thing to fuck with and you know Soles Games and games that make you risk progress. That can be really cool like it can work really well to raise. The stakes aches and be exciting. But it's very intense in the minute you start getting into like you let the player fall into this negative loop where you know. They're losing and losing losing more and then an hour later they're back farther behind where they were when they started an hour ago. That can just turn really bad at least on me like it. Psychologically difficult so so I don't. I don't like that mechanic though. It feels like you're you're not losing progress because the progress is kind of in your mind like what you learned about the limit i. I'm not saying that souls does that at all. Souls does a very good job of playing with the same kinds of ideas. I'm saying like when you're playing with that you've got to do it. Well and be careful souls generally do you do it well but it can dicey thing to play with so there are times where it can turn bad mattie. What about you a couple of different questions within this question like one of them is the idea of a mechanic that contradicts the games own logic which I feel is a very common thing like yours of more? Let's revive people in the heat of battle but not when they die dramatically in a cut scene which is like a joke. That's told about very often but off. Yeah like every game has some equivalent one of of that but then there's also the idea of just a game having some logistical trials. That within the scope of the game I don't know if they even make sense for the world like the most recent example in my mind isn't US training. Actually I think the logistics in that game are pretty forgiving. Perhaps because there are so many auto save options in that game so you can really redo emission and make sure that you have everything you need and it's super easy to go back but like fire. Emblem I really hate the system of changing out your weapons and leveling mm all your shit in that game all of that you I I never started to like it. I just found it tedious annoying like going to the shop up getting the battalion's recharge it all felt so administrative in so boring to me and I really just wanted there to be a button that was like give everybody the most powerful weapons for whatever. They're freaking type is I. Don't even care. I don't WanNA think about this. But now you have to manually go through and like make sure everyone has the crap weapons or like the number of times that I was started battle in that game and like a couple of people have forgotten stupid weapons equipped for some reason and like the other ones would be in my little vaults and I'd have to go back out and do you like okay. Let me I mean Redo this because like one of you broke your lance or something and now you have a bad weapon. I find that stuff so annoying. That really takes me out of a game like plot. Wise is even because I'm like this doesn't feel like a real problem. This feels like a stupid problem that would never have. I am being forced to do any of this. But yeah she's way. Hey better. Training has like a triangle. You hit so you just frigging reorient. All your stuff and it's good like every game should have that Diane having read Celia Hogan's book and like you ex design because I've always been fascinated by earliest increasingly fascinated by it. But it really goes to show how you X. and you X. designers there's that's user experience for anyone who's which is ties in an interface and all that stuff. It's so the difference between logistics being fun active part of the game and Shitty Chore. Sure you don't want to deal with so many have terrible you X.. Where like you have to go through every fucking store like you're talking about with each item and their other games where it's like a fun part of the game is optimizing demise and doing your load out in doing it and it's just gets into even little things like you know like how it feels to move a thing around or what buttons are are you know queued to what action it really is a fascinating weird thing that is not really well understood even by me? But I'm with you on that for sure especially good and you can tell when it's bad got you extra experiences. That's true all right. Let's get to the next question. Kirk it is your turn okay. Hey this comes from Sheron who writes hi Mattie Kirk and Jason. Here's my mail bag question. Who would you put on your Personal Mount Rushmore video game characters bonus question question? Who would you put on the Mount Rushmore all video games? My industry-wide Rushmore is probably very similar. To most people's Mario Lara Croft master chief. And pacman my personal mount rushmore would be murrow doomed Guy Nico Belic and Tim from Braid I think. Let's say the Personal Mount Rushmore. Let's do that. I WanNa hear each of your personal. Not Rushmore Jason. You don't have to do all of them just like who are some of the characters that would be on your personal mount rushmore. Okay my personal Mount Rushmore. I think Mario Oh has to be on there. I think link has to be on there and I realized that I'm choosing to Kinda silent protagonists but I think they're iconic Hanoch enough to be there. Let me think so. Let me let me think while you're thinking here's a couple that I would maybe throw out there to put on there. There could be some villains on their videos are so defined by their villains that it could be like show Dan and a big daddy and like the G man..

"So if indeed if you do the math in reverse if indeed you excavate this site. And it is confirmed that this is Mount Sinai. And there are clear overt semitic. Proto Hebrew as Ryan put symbols throughout replete through the excavation. Then the question of what occurred at mount Mariah is settled. There isn't a room for an alternative the Islamic narrative collapses, frankly, there's no room for an alternative theory. Now, similar say. And this is I would say to me fire. You Steve you're always the one arguing philosophically for one side's assertion to be true. So must than the opposite of it. So if we go there, and we find bedouin markings does that collapse the Judeo Christian narrative, it doesn't collapse. It I agree. It would not be ideal. I think we would all agree. It would not be ideal for today. Oh, Christian narrative, if this were to be confirmed through excavate the side of Mount Sinai for there to be bedouin symbolic and markings and not civic or Hebrew. I think we would agree on that right to be fair K. But here's the problem with saying while they would not be a boost to that narrative. I don't believe it's even a mortal wound to it why. Because you then still have to do the math to explain. Where does the hist? Why have the Jews been in that land and lived there on and off for thousands of years now? Why? Meaning their narrative still has a historical claim they have still Moses never I'm sorry. Muhammad never visited the holy land physically went there in a dream. If you read the Koran he never said foot there. Where do the Jews have claim to that land historical that we can that we have historical evidence and ties to I've mentioned arche- archeology is uncovered references to king, David, for example. So the juice still have claim to that land. Where did that claim come from them? Because the point of the exodus was to lead them wear. Promised land to the promised land. So while I agree. It would not be optimal for the Judeo Christian narrative for that site to be affirmed as the as the mount of Moses and then for it to be bedouin in nature. It still doesn't doesn't really dent at all where the historical claim of the Jews to the promise land comes from. You see what I'm trying to say. Whereas in my view, the entire Islam. Ick narrative collapses. In the heart of Saudi Arabia. Muhammed's home nation. In the heart of Saudi Arabia. This is confirmed as Mount Sinai and everything there of historical significance in the confirmation is of semitic origin. There's only one explanation for that. There would be no other explanation. There's a reason maybe why it's twenty nineteen and we're just now hearing about this. Maybe is this gambit. Yeah. To me. It's it's a it's a risky gambit. It carries some risk for Judeo Christian narrative. It's the if you wanna use a poker term, it is the degree all in moment for the Muslim narrative. The Muslim narrative either is sustained or collapses if that site is Mount Sinai. I don't I don't see an in between the did you Christian errative still could fall back on. Okay. Then you still have to explain to me where the Jewish claim of the holy land. Historically, how did they get there? Then. Yeah. You still have to answer that and know the people that the Israelis are arguing about whereas the capital of of Israel how much of the West Bank is this occupied territory. Those Palestinians are not descended from the seven tribes of Canaan that the Israelites removed and replaced those tribes were eliminated and or married and melded into the Jewish people. The Palestinians are when when new Gingrich got in trouble for saying they're made up people..

And nobody in the village knows the exact details of how this is going to work like what Foxconn will deliver to the town in the town will give away in exchange and everybody wanted to know those details, including me because there was something about this whole deal that had just never made sense to me, which is why would Foxconn want to come to America?

Lynch Pierce Fenner and Smith incorporated, a broker dealer registered investment advisor, member SIPC. Welcome back to the show. So can we just talk for a minute about how weird it is? That Foxconn would want a factory in America. I mean think about it Foxconn is very well set up in Asia where politicians are on their side land is cheap. They can pay workers little to work seven days a week. That's their entire business model. So why come to Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin? I reached out to Foxconn, but they wouldn't talk to me and Alberto out this analyst who has studied Foxconn for years and has written extensively about them said. This is not surprising at all. Because Foxconn doesn't talk to anyone. It's one of the more secretive obscure opaque companies ever, you'll never find an org chart. Never. Find management structure will never find breakdowns. Details on different business units. Refined shipment. Data thought me out a lot of companies Ray secretive. But these guys are notably secret. Was pens speaker Ryan governor Walker and that hinged members of congress lettuce gentlemen, if you listen to the speech that Terry goat, the chairman of Foxconn gave alongside President Trump at that big press conference. It's very impressive. How little he actually says? Like, here's his reason for why Foxconn is coming to America. Why do it's here? Tea was invented in America. Yet American does not have a single LCD fed to produce. Come system. We are going to change. You saying TV was invented here. But there's no TV factories here. And so he's going to come and build a TV factory. Which when you think about it just does not make sense. Because there's a good reason that TV's are not made from scratch in this country, all of the components like the entire supply chain is in Asia. And so I took this question to village president Dave degroot just to ask. What do you think? Why is FOX coming to Wisconsin and to him? It just seemed obvious. This is where the the the education. This is where they see where all of the, you know vacation occurs. They they want to get close to the the next generations of kids coming up because that's what drives the technology market is newest Bank stuff for you know, for for kids as their. As they're getting through school and getting into their income earning years, so it's not just that they're market hasn't. America Americans are like famous for buying the biggest TV screens. It's also you think that they'll get better engineering talent here than back in Asia. Well, it's called the science and engineering park of you know, that was kind valley Foxconn science and engineering park. And that's that's that's really what they think. Is there Ason the whole science and engineering park that Dave is talking about just to be clear. It doesn't actually exist right now. But he's saying it will days point is Wisconsin and America great. Of course, FOX on wants a piece of that. Here's what I think is going on. I think it's just math Foxconn did the math. It's very cheap for them to operate in China. So what would America need to do for Foxconn in order to make it worth their while just being here? It's a hedge against tariffs. But how much other stuff could they get out of town like Mount Pleasant and Foxconn being this, very smart international operator. They're used to dealing with countries. And they have this trick the analysts elbow told me they go to the country and say we're going to build this
