"mount olympus" Discussed on The Dinesh D'Souza Podcast
"I want to talk about three threads or three themes that emerge from the discussion between that is the mother of Achilles and the gods when she goes up to Zeus to petition Zeus, the supreme God. To do what Achilles wants, what her son Achilles wipes and what he wants is he wants to teach the Greeks a lesson. He wants to teach agamemnon a lesson and give ascendancy, give an advantage to the Trojans in the war. At least a temporary advantage, but one that will result in the deaths of a lot of Greeks. Now, let's follow the plot a little bit. This is the first interesting thing about it. You get a window into how the gods interact with each other. It turns out that you've got Zeus and it may seem that Zeus is nominally in charge and he is. He is the God of thunder and lightning. He has ultimate say you might say, but he's got a very jealous and scheming wife or her name is Hera. And she is particularly a hostile to any other woman in whom Zeus takes an interest or grand any kind of partiality or favor to and so here you have that is. And she's making a petition to Zeus and Zeus knows that Hera is this way. So Zeus is kind of nervous. And he listens to that is. And he agrees. He says he'll do it. He'll give temporary ascendancy as she wants to the Trojans. They're gonna win victories. And but he does it in a kind of sideways, Zeus sort of does it through gestures. He doesn't really want to say it. He doesn't want to be over. And so you get this idea here that the gods are very much a kind of anthropomorphic, a human like crew. They overhear on things. Wait a minute, what did you say? Did you agree with what she said? Why do you think she's beautiful? All this kind of stuff goes on with the gods and Homer is showing it to us. And Zeus knows that he's going to sort of have to answer for what he's granting to tariffs. But he does. He does grant her wish and she returns a happy, but the moment that she leaves Hera Zeus's wife turns on Zeus and basically starts blasting him and Zeus knows it's coming, so he sort of shuts her up. In fact, here we go. To the text, you which he basically he basically says silence. And he says, if I hear anything more out of you, you're gonna be sorry. So here you've got this battle emerging between two of the most powerful gods on Mount Olympus and for the sole reason that Zeus has sort of given in to thanes on this one point now Hera, by the way, is a partisan of the Greeks. So she's not happy that Zeus has agreed to give the Trojans an advantage. And then we have a very interesting tidbit, which is very revealing of the gods, and that is her face this, who is the son of Zeus and Hera. He's actually the God, the master craftsman God. He makes armor, and so it ultimately will see later in the alien. He designs Achilles armor toward the end of the story. But a face just jumps right in between in a sense his dad and his mom, and he says this, he's talking really to Hera. He goes, this is terrible. It's going to ruin us all. If you do quarrel like this over mortals, it's bound to affect us gods. There'll be no pleasure in our feasts if we let things turn ugly. So here you have the idea that although the gods are concerned with human fate, they're really not that concerned. They might have, in some cases, you have gods who have actual sons and daughters, you have gods that take sides, but here's a face just basically saying, listen, don't get into a big huff over this. It's gonna ruin our dinner. We're gonna be having this great feast with nectar and ambrosia, by the way, that's the food of the gods. They don't eat normal food. They drink nectar and eat ambrosia. This kind of divine flower, if you will. But have faced this is like, let's not make too big a deal of it. Back off, he basically tells his mom and his mom agrees to do that. So the sort of piece, a temporary protrusive restored among the gods, but the net effect of this narrative. That's what I want to point out. Now, so the first theme is the window into the world of the gods. The second theme is how this development plot development enhances Homer's narrative, and it doesn't really in a couple of ways. The first way is this. You know, the audience knows the outcome. We know the outcome. If we know the Trojan war story, we know that the Greeks are going to sack Troy, Troy is going to fall. So how do you make a narrative interesting? If the Greeks are going to win, they're going to win again. They're going to win again and Troy falls. That's not so interesting a narrative, so Homer gives us a reversal. The reversal is that because of a Greek Achilles. Having an F a fight with agamemnon, we now have a decision by a God Zeus that gives the Trojans an advantage. And so the Trojans who would seem to be the weaker side are going to be clobbering and pummeling the Greeks for a big section now of the Iliad. The Greeks are going to face massive losses. In a sense, Achilles is going to be able to give a major I told you so. And so from the point of view of the plot, it enhances the suspense. This is not going to be the Greeks winning winning winning. There's going to be a reversal of fortune here and the Trojans for a change are going to be winning and winning pretty big. When we come back, I'll talk about the second advantage of this plotline from Homer and advantage that is particularly important when you consider the audience for whom the Iliad is
"mount olympus" Discussed on 10% Happier with Dan Harris
"Well, it is what it is and I'll just have to learn to live with it. We've actually studied that question. And it turns out not to be the case. And what the data actually find or the data actually show is that along with the improvements in distress, it actually leads to an improvement in those areas of sexual function, right? So an improvement in desire and these other domains. And in fact, the decrease in distress can predict the improvements in desire and arousal and pleasure and sexual satisfaction. That goes to one of the things I wanted to talk about with you and I know that this is a huge emphasis for you and something that you're finding that people get very interested in, which is, as people reduce their stress, then they're distressed, then the desire can come back. And so I also know that you've talked a lot about the relationship between stress generally. And sexual function. Does this flow for you, this connection I'm making here? Yeah, it sure does. That wasn't originally why our team set out to apply mindfulness to sex and see if it worked. We didn't kind of go into this with the hypothesis that stress was the cause and the maintainer of sexual problems. But it sure is the case when we look at the data and when we ask people to self report their levels of stress. And when I talk about stress in this way, I'm not talking necessarily about a single traumatic event that happened in a person's life. Although that is the case for some people, natural disaster, sexual assault, witnessing death, et cetera, rather the stress that we're talking about and we're seeing and other surveys are documenting on a very large scale is the day to day grind the never ending to do list. The feeling of never being able to sort of accomplish anything to the quality that people feel comfortable with. And this kind of chronic stress as we call it results in changes in the brain and our ability to not just regulate day to today stress, but also our ability to experience sexual response. So there's a direct link between day to today stress that's chronic and impairments and sexual function and also the mechanisms by which mindfulness can improve sexuality. Distress manifests differently for different genders as it pertains to sexual function or dysfunction. Yeah, that's a great question. It actually does. And for this is work not that we have done, but others have done, but I've certainly seen it in my clinical practice. And what we often find is women might be more likely to say my low desire is a problem for my relationship and makes my partner unhappy and thus our relationship satisfaction goes down. Whereas male partners might be more likely to say the distress from my sexual problem is an insult to who I am as a person, it sort of conflicts with my ideas of who I am. So it's more personal distress that men will express and it's more interpersonal distress that women will report. Now, of course, there's exceptions to that. And of course, we, in the context of a relationship, we never want to say one person is responsible for the kind of relationship happiness that both contribute to that. And so that sometimes in the context of couples work when we bring mindfulness into couples, we help frame these issues from a couple or dyadic perspective. I was laughing when you were talking because yes, it's true that we need to be careful, but speaking in generalizations here as necessarily when we talk about the difference among genders. I was laughing though because it's like men take it as a personal insult that go in a very self centered direction with this. Myself included, which I'm not putting on the commenting from on top of Mount Olympus here. And women go to a more communitarian relationship, interpersonal, and really just reflects the messages the society, the culture, send to men and women about what you're supposed to be doing. Many men get the message that your life is about. Personal achievement and dominance in some way and doing better than other people. And so it's interesting to see how this ramifies in this context. Yeah. And even in how, if we go back to stress for a moment, how stress is experienced, it differs by gender. And there's a much more significant kind of interpersonal or relational aspect that women experience, right? So a fight or disappointing someone for a woman can be a major contributor to her feelings of stress, whereas for men, it would be much more based upon those kind of personal markers of achievement versus failure. And I realize I'm talking in dichotomy there on purpose. That's true to me in that this is the type of reaction I might have. Why is it that you think you get so much response when you talk about this connection between stress and sex? Why is this so resonant for people? There's probably a variety of reasons, but I think one reason is that there are so many myths and stereotypes about sex in our society. And one of which is that sex should be automatic, that it's purely biological, that it acts like a reflex in other words, if you kind of stimulate the right area with the sufficient tension that our body will respond and, I mean, even as I'm saying that, I'm sure that your listeners are shaking their heads saying, no, I don't believe that. But the reality is, is in these large surveys, we see that these kinds of myths are really quite pervasive. So to present to folks, the idea that actually stress is probably a bigger contributor than your own biology, then your own hormones, then your own neurotransmitters in your brain is on the one hand, you know, a bit of a paradigm shift for them. But on the other hand, it's also an opportunity for people to say, oh, okay, well, is there something I can do about that? Where is the suggestion that is purely biological? I mean, apart from a medication, as I mentioned earlier, there really aren't many options for women in the domain of effective and safe medications. So the conversation about stress and sex opens up the opportunity for, well, what can I do about it? And yes, mindfulness is very effective, but there are other psychological and skills based techniques that we can use that address and reduce stress as well. So I think that idea of being able to have some self efficacy or some control over your sexual difficulties is really empowering and inspiring for people. Regardless of the person's age or social situation or race ethnicity or even sexual orientation. I would imagine for people to make them feel like you're not uniquely broken, that this is biologically lawful. This is totally natural. All right. Yeah, that feeling of, you know, I'm alone, I'm the only person that suffers from this sexual concern is so common and it's a large part of the reason why we often run groups. So our mindful sex groups for years and years were face to face thanks to the pandemic, we moved to online, had some concerns about our ability to really have this conversation about sex and stress and practice mindfulness online, all of my own concerns were completely washed away when we noticed that being able to do this online meant that individuals who have barriers to attending say hospital setting or a clinic suddenly those were eliminated. So the ability for connection, feeling not alone, feeling validated, observing that, wow, there's all of these other individuals that are going through exactly what I'm going through and along with that came a fair bit of relief and connection that then allow them to dive even deeper into the mindfulness. We've talked about how mindfulness can improve sexual function because it reduces stress. What are the other ways in which it is helpful? Yeah, this has been a major part of my own research in the last 5 years. We sort of got to a stage in the research where we showed mindfulness works, here are the different populations for whom it works. And then I became fascinated with the question of how, right? So stress absolutely, it reduces both the physiological stress response, right?.

I'm not one of these people who believes that the founding fathers were demi gods who came from mount olympus briefly appeared here gave us a perfect constitution and then disappeared in that it every time we confront the problem. We should ask what. James madison have done. I think there's a kind of founder fetish. But i do think it's an extraordinary process that delivered an extraordinarily product. That as i say has been amazingly resilient. I think those locked learn from it but i think the mistake is not directly is that it has flaws. I'd always have flaws. Are how to handle slavery. The issue of centre state relations had to be essentially redone and was redone by creatively interpreting. Things like the interstate commerce clause but you know basically the federal government had too few powers and over time the balance was shifted but that was something the founders. God wrong i mean. They've got it wrong the first time in ten years the original government collapsed the articles of confederation. They tried again. And i would say they still were great limitation. So i think the would we need to understand is any system you know in concert. Line out of the crooked timber of humanity. No straight thing was ever made. You know there are lots of flaws in it.

The Legend of the Sphinx
"Anyone who went through in egyptology phase probably knows the sphinx. A winged lion with the head of a human while popular tradition suggests that sphinxes are always feminine. That's not necessarily the case. The egyptian great sphinx of giza reportedly represented the old kingdom pharaoh. Qafra lion and human composite creatures can be found in legends from all over the african and asian continents. So while they're generally wise and protective they come in quite a few different variations. In fact it's not until the greeks imported the egyptian version of the sphinx into their own legends. That the creature picked up its most notorious characteristic. Love of tricks and riddles. If you can solve one of its puzzles you might not be devoured own. Mount olympus gates had been barred to fix the sphinx for as long as she existed creatures like her were deemed too inconsequential to find a home here. The gods viewed her as little more than a conquest for their half human children so when fixed received a scroll of summons she considered not going a belated invitation was worse than no invitation at all plus the gods were probably just calling her because they were angry. She had eaten the goddess artemis sacred deer. Still curiosity had a way of wriggling under her skin. Fixed couldn't resist the chance to see the gods home. She glided between the ivory gates on her white wings. Her golden for glinting in the sun. She loved the breeze and the smell of fresh fruit and wine in the air. She dipped her head to enter the palace of olympus and marveled at the white marble columns that held up the stone. Roof above fix would have been happy to call olympics home. Were it not.

The tightness tough nut killed his mother and he was set on claiming revenge with silky. Blonde hair glistening in the sunlight like gold. Young zeus was in his physical prime as he prepared his troops to make their ascent of mount olympus with one hand holding his magic staff and another clutching the hilt of sword.

I titan fawn known by troops as the piercer led an army of conscript making up his frontlines fighting under the threat of torture. They were in stark contrast to the militant fantasia.

Three hundred thousand professional soldiers made up that putin side. One hundred thousand. Fantasia and greek footsoldiers opposed them making excellent use of their unity and the military prowess of the fantasia put to the test.

How Psychedelic Drugs Are Making A Comeback To Treat Depression
"Depression. It can be a difficult mental illness to pin down. It can feel different for everyone and even those who struggle with it can have trouble identifying bought. It is a mostly came to understood that. I had depression through talking with my friends for the longest time. I kind of system that everyone felt this way. Like weird just like general malays for this twenty nine year old. Depression surfaced about six years ago and began as a feeling of being disconnected with the world. I didn't want to eat because they didn't feel like i deserve to eat. I don't know. I didn't hang out with friends because i didn't feel like i deserve to see my friends. I didn't feel like i should be punishing them by talking to them seeing them. This person uses they them pronouns. They're a maryland resident and work as a software tester. They sought help for their depression. Trying numerous types of treatments may visited a bunch of different mental health professionals and tried different types of arby's In different types of medication but it always kinda felt like things were getting worse and worse and a current really find someone who has really helped me understand what was going on like. I still didn't even believe that. I had depression. All the while the depression advanced it felt like being alive and lake wanting to die rolling constantly fighting over like the resources in my mind then. Their health insurance lapsed in two thousand eighteen making the situation worse a surprise solution appeared while they were scrolling on social media and a posting from johns hopkins university researchers and then one day i was kind of like clicking through facebook and i actually found this ad four like this little simon. Study silla simon. That's the psychedelic drug found in magic mushrooms. And i thought it was fake remarks. I didn't expect there to be you know like a a legitimate study showing up on like facebook ad but they had no insurance basically they were out of options so they called wanted to have hope again from the wall street journal. This is the future of everything. I'm janet babbling today on the podcast. How the hallucinogenic compounds silla zyban once associated with nine hundred sixty s drug culture is making a comeback and giving people suffering from depression and other mental illnesses. Hope for this twenty nine year old study participant. Depression was not something that happened in their family. My family's from the caribbean and lived in america probably for about lake in years. We came here in ninety nine. It's kind of interesting because where from like a place that doesn't really view mental health. The that like america's mental health. It took me a while to realize that. I was having mental health problems that i was kind of experiencing depression. Depression affects a staggering number of people hundreds of millions worldwide according to a study published in the peer reviewed journal the lancet in two thousand eighteen. The pandemic didn't make things any easier. Last june about a third of people who responded to web based surveys said they suffered from symptoms of depression or anxiety disorder. Those results were published by the centers for disease control and prevention the protocol for treating these conditions hasn't changed much in the past few years. What we've been using is typically one of two things either a medication that people take every day or we have psychotherapy dr. Alan davis is clinical psychologist and an assistant professor at the ohio state university. He's also an adjunct assistant. Professor at johns hopkins university. A lot of people will improve with either medication or therapy or both to basically have both have a better chance but it doesn't work for everyone. Some studies report between ten and thirty. Five percent of patients suffer from treatment resistant. Depression and davis is that similar to what he's found in his own practice working with veterans suffering from substance abuse trauma and other mental health issues. So he began looking for alternative treatments present and welcome to psychedelic science. Two thousand and thirteen in twenty thirteen davis attended a science conference and came across a study exploring the use of silla. Sivan a chemical compound found in specific varieties of mushrooms to treat cancer patients with mental health conditions. The compounds documented facts include feelings of heightened awareness ecstasy visions and changes in the perception of reality for researchers say one of the most useful qualities is its ability to dissolve the ego to allow a user to observe oneself from the outside in the study of cancer patients. The drug was able to alleviate some of the anxiety and depression that can be associated with having a life threatening illness. I was just inspired by that word. I thought gosh this really could have a strong impact in the areas that i'm working with veterans and with others davis became part of a team of researchers at johns hopkins university that put together a randomized clinical trial. Twenty four participants. They were administered. Silla sivan with talk therapy to treat their depression. Enrollment for the trial took place in two thousand seventeen and twenty nineteen and the results were analyzed in two thousand twenty. Most of them had had chronic depression meaning decades of experiencing depression though not some had had it for shorter amount of time but this study was a weightless control trials so some people came in and started treatment right away. Others had to wait eight weeks before starting treatment so we had a comparison group. The study subjects received an extensive intake examined questionnaire to confirm. They were suffering from symptoms of depression. Participants were screened for schizophrenia. And drug use as these conditions can interfere with suicide and treatment. The big worry many people have about psychedelics is what's often referred to as a bad trip. Mary negative hallucinations. That can be scary and this is kind of trip that can go bad. Martissant received hefty doses of these drugs. The doses are based on weight and they vary slightly but patients receive around twenty milligrams in the first session a bit more in the second session to minimize the risk of a negative experience. Davis says researchers focused on controlling. What's called and setting. They work ahead of time to ensure the volunteers current mood and surroundings while taking the drugs. Remain as calm and comfortable as possible and so we spend about eight to ten hours with people before they ever get the drug talking about what the effects are talking about. What may or may not happen when they have this experience and that's why we have to train professionals there with them not only to prepare them for that but to help them through the experience when it happens because a lot of people have anxiety coming into the session. The person we spoke to the twenty nine year old participated in davis study group in august of two thousand eighteen. They had no prior experience with psychedelic drugs and didn't know watch expect basically went in kind of blindly. I don't have any other options. So that's kind of my thought process at the time was just basically kind of sticking anything to the wall and hoping it would work after fasting the previous night the treatment can cause nausea. They were placed in a small tranquil room fitted with a comfy couch. The whole room was a really really cool in very comforting because like they had like these statues like imagery in their end like. I think one of the muslim dowa tibetan model. I wanna say this and like there was like this nice lamp. It's off this really. Soft light psychedelic assisted. Therapy participants are encouraged to bring in objects from home to make them feel more comfortable. Some bring in ten bears pictures of family. The twenty nine year old brought a lightness of an ancient sumerian goddess. Soon nana once they were settled in the room. They were given two pills in a wooden cop the therapists top that the sivan would take fifteen to thirty minutes to start working. In the interim they were told to put on ice shades and headphones. That would play a selection of music they choose from classical tibetan chanting african drumming and modern music too. Once the drug fact the participants says the first session became a kaleidoscope of mental images and sensations. I remember being in lake. Felt like mount olympus the fall of the gods like oval the clouds and suffering them. And then one of my god's up to me and she gave me a key fell through the clouds. And i felt all the way down through the earth and i ended up in hell which is really strange because they don't remember being scared even though i was in hell and i remember asking like hey you know why am i hair And it was like haiti's leading me through hell kind of just like showing me around for life this very cold and desolate last. He was like of course. This is where you would come like. This is where you've made your home. The self revelations continued throughout this long session and turned intensely personal. I remember like hearing like the beats. Come on and i felt myself in like this place like all of my ancestors were and i was really close to my grandfather when i was a kid. And he died. Probably around when i was like four and i saw him kind of materialize And he walked towards the youth like these. She'll bananas which is what he's doing her then he handed one to me and i always kind of was afraid that if he was alive he would be disappointed in me and i remember asking him you know. When am i supposed to do like if my family like my parents and lake my siblings can accept me and he said that he'll always be there for me and my ancestors will always be there for me and i like that scene just like it. Metsu in mental to me after about seven hours than drugs started to wear off when it was over. You know you're still kind of like feeling it but just not as intensely so just basically like this really happy kind of floaty failing and we couldn't drive so like i had to have a sister pick me up. They ended the experience hungry and exhausted as for the depression not much appeared to have changed then. They tried the silla sivan trip once more this time with the stronger dose and after that these say they experienced to palpable shift. It felt like i was back into the world again like i was in reality. A lot of people said that not only was there. Depression differently felt like they had come out of dark hole that they've been in for years but a lot of people regardless of whether they're depression was gone or or reduced said that there was something really meaningful different about how they view their life initial results for the study reviewing outcomes from up to a month after the sessions were completed found that silla sivan plus therapy was more than four times more effective than other treatments. Such as medication alone at one week. Fifty eight percent of the sample were in complete remission from depression that actually lasted up to four weeks. After fifty four percent of people were in complete remission and were now studying those same people up to twelve months after to see how long that remission lasted the rest of the participants in the study. Were not in remission they were still experiencing clinically significant depressive symptoms researchers have yet to publish the results of longer term outcomes for all the participants their condition up to a year after treatment and this was a small study. Just twenty four people. Some scientists remain skeptical of this kind of treatment not just of silla simon. But of the validity of the data an outcomes for all studies involving psychoactive substances

People are animated. I'm a strong believer in animated just because wake ruler bold stuff. Yeah i was gonna say the same thing you can do cooler more unbelievable deaths and add more action when you make it animated like battle royale. One of the reason we have people like outlandishly flailing around because there's a lot of flailing around in that movie and there's a lot of outlandishly surviving. A lot of bullets is because you want that like the. Yeah that theatrical fight tension whereas if it was an anime you would need to do that to be able to add all of that because you could do.

We're like everyone that dies goes when they die, but it's like the house you grew up in it's like which is kind of cool.

"The show, building resilient relationships with therapist Esther Burrell. And before the break, Esther was explaining how the expectations in modern marriage have changed, so we come to one person. And we basically are asking them to give us what once an entire village used to provide. Give me belonging. Give me identity. Give me continuities, but give me transcendence and mystery and all all in one Give me comfort. Give me EJ Give me novelty. Give me familiarity. Give me predictability Give me surprise and we think it's a given and toys and leisurely are going to save us with that. So now we get to the existential reality of the story, right? Because I think in some way the crisis of desire is often a crisis of the imagination. And when I say that we cannot have one person give us what once an entire village used to provide. What I'm saying is that there is a kind of individualization In romantic love that I think it's problematic. Look at this moment. I'm not just even meeting a partner. We are meeting a soul mate. A soul mate used to be God. You know, But at this moment, people are talking about ecstasy, transcendence, meaning wholeness. You know things that we used to look for in the realm of the divine that have now been transcended into romantic love. It was meant to be. It's almost a divine intervention. It fell from the heavens in front of me and, you know, I think that the problem is with that model of one person for everything. What I will say. Is that people need community and they need other friends. They need other people to talk to.

Brooklyn Nets hire Hall of Famer Steve Nash as head coach
"Welcome to the low post podcast where the plan was to talk hilariously awful game sevens and DEFCON. In Milwaukee with the one and only Kevin Arnovitz but Mr Kevin Arnovitz about five minutes ago news dropped from the news gods on Mount Olympus of Basketball Steve Nash Steve Freaking, Nash, two time. NBA Mvp. The point God of the seven seconds less Phoenix Suns will become the head coach of the Brooklyn Nets. This is I think the first one since Brad, Stevens to Boston were like the news came although that came via a press release the celtics that one themselves where the news came like an earthquake with absolutely no warning no rumors know anything all the rumors moghreb Popovich a note, Steve Nash. So Steve Nash Has Minimal coaching experiences consulted team Canada. I'm not sure again this just happened I haven't looked up his exact role, a team Canada he was a consultant with the Golden State, warriors GM. You might have been the GM GM Canada. You're right. And I think clearly relevant in his consultation with the Golden State. Warriors developed a close relationship with Kevin Durant and I and they worked together in the off season a lot on various aspects of Katie's game in I interviewed. Steve Two years ago. About Kevin I wrote a big piece in the two thousand eighteen finals or so anti climactic that my big final piece was not about the finals at all it was about like what is Kevin Durant WanNa be as a basketball player like what is Kevin Durant? You Know Kevin Durant and his entire career has been. You could argue who was the quote best player on the team with the warriors not with the thunder he was clearly the best player on the thunder team but was never the lead ball handler of his team. So I wrote this sort of like, what is Kevin Durant and Steve Talk to me in depth about their relationship and about how after the warriors won the first title he and Kevin would talk about how Kevin did not fill fulfilled by. Winning that title in the way that he expected that it did not give him the fulfillment that he expected all this. So I, think that's obviously A big reason why Kevin by Steve Nash is now the coach of the nets. I mean the nets have lots of stuff to not figure out they have to superstars coming back carousel avert head. As you know like a superstar scoring run I guess in the bubble they gotTA figure out fits those guys I mean, what's your? What's this just happened? What do you think what's happening? So, one way to look at this is what is the head coach's role in two thousand and twenty, twenty one and to a great extent. Especially when you have talent like durant irving, you're in the talent management business, you're in the business of men managing relationships, empowering players the right way. Their XS and os no. By the way if there's anybody who's the personification of modern basketball, it's this guy or like everything you and I talk about every single time I'm on can in some ways be traced back to that son's team. So you're talking about a guy with an enormous. Basketball IQ and by all accounts and emotional IQ as well. So. So, that that is the case sport that that look that is the primary responsibility of the New Jersey Nets. Can you listen to me Brooklyn Nets had could they're

Narcissus and Echo
"Narcissus and Echo. Once upon a time in ancient Greece there was a young man named Narcissus. From the minute he was born. It was clear to everyone that he was no normal baby. The ancient gods of Mount Olympus had gifted him with a beauty beyond measure. He was the cutest baby anyone had ever seen, and his cheeks were nearly perpetually pink from all the pinching. As, he got older. He only grew more beautiful. His hair was the gentle tumble of a hidden waterfall over golden stones. His eyes were piercing moons that sets way to the tides of your mind. His smile was pure and bright and radiant like the hot white son of a midsummer's Day flooding. You with warmth. Yes, young narcissists was blessed by the Gods with beauty. But if you're not careful, even a blessing can turn into a curse. For narcissists. It started when he was just a teen people noticed his beauty. They wanted to be married to him. They wanted to be him. They just wanted to be close to him and to make him happy. Unfortunately, all of that positive attention went right to his head. Before Long Narcissus was convinced that not only was he a beautiful handsome, strapping image of a man. He was the most beautiful the most handsome, and that he was simply the God's gift to the world. People would ask him to be friends to walk with them in the woods or play with them at their games and Narcissus would laugh in their faces. You want me to play with you. He would say I'm a work of art and your just well. You enjoy my beauty from afar. Shout your praises, but don't come to close or else I'll have to see how much uglier you all are, and it will ruin my day. This was of course, a terribly rude way to behave, but because narcissus was so incredibly beautiful, he usually managed to get away with it. This is the thing that happens sometimes, and it's not fair, but don't worry in this case. Bad behavior will not be tolerated for long. For, Narcissus, it was one long summer when he couldn't get any rest everywhere, he went. People called out to him. Narcissus Mary Me Dr. CICIS let me sculpt you nor Souza's let me just have a kiss and I can die a happy man. On and on they came, and as much as narcissus love to be admired. He hated the common people to him. It was just wildly unfair that he had to look at their average faces while they got to stare at an absolute one of a kind genuine work of art. In his mind, he decided a perfect world would be populated by him and him alone beautiful and perfect without anyone to bother him. But seeing as that was impossible, narcissus decided to take a break. One beautiful. Sun Drenched Day. He packed bag and hiked away into the forest near Mount Olympus. Out here, there was no one to bother him. There were no average faces to be annoyed by deep in the woods. Narcissus confined only be alone with his beautiful self. or so he thought in Ancient Greece even in the deep dark depths of the enchanted woods, there were creatures ready to fall in love creatures who looked familiar, but not quite human, and one of them was watching Narcissus already scrambling from branch to branch after him nimble as a squirrel, the creature was a Nymph, and her name was echo. NYMPHS are spirits of the forest, and they're always curious about human travelers. They were considered very beautiful in own right known to stop people in their tracks with just a glance acco was even more beautiful than most she had dappled skin that blushed light, pink and dark, purple like flowers, her eyes sparkled like the stars on the seas, and her hair was a wild mass of flowing green. Eco was beautiful, but she had also been cursed by the Gods in punishment for some trouble she. She had caused for Zeus and his many wives echo lost the gift of speech
Glaciers in the Olympic Mountains could vanish this century
"To Washington's Olympic Mountains standing off glaciers that have carved the landscape but what touristy today is different from one hundred years ago back then. Blue Glacier descended from Mount Olympus like an the icy hand reaching out over the rock. Now that hand has retreated up the mountain nearby. At what was once Lillian. Glacier only snow patches remain. Gene reminds me of a birthday cake. You have this gorgeous birthday cake. And then two days later it's just crumbs. That's Andrew Fountain of Portland State University City using glacier maps and historical photos. He estimates that the glaciers of the Olympic Mountains have shrunk by about seventy five percent since nineteen hundred early in the century. Much of the melting could be attributed to natural causes but fountain says now carbon pollution is warming the climate and that's accelerating the glacier's retreat from nineteen eighty one to twenty fifteen. They shrunk about forty percents. He says without climate action their future looks grim by the end of the century. He expects the glaciers of the Olympic mountains will be gone maybe a few ice patches left and little nooks and crannies but as far as we can see they'll finish
