Understanding a Journalist's Sixth Sense

"So stories like Ricky Morton and Justin Bieber, and you've heard enough about me talking about Britney Spears, but all those stories, they don't come to a journalist in a nice, pretty box with a bow on top. We don't get the answer to these stories like that. And these are the kind of stories we won't find out about. Well, we won't find out what was really wrong until many years from now when these people sit down with whoever the next Oprah Obama Walt dish is, right? So in the meantime, in the meantime, that leaves people like me and other journalists, journalists who've hauled their skills after many years of chasing stories to figure out what's going on. I like to say that I have a Spidey sense when it comes to these sorts of stories and my Spidey sense has been right way more than it's been wrong. It's probably operating at 85%. You develop when you work as a journalist, this ability to use this 6th sense, not because you're some mystic. But because you've covered so many stories in 20 some odd years, you tend to know where they're going to go. It's like a cop tracking down a criminal or an animal or a predator chasing down prey. You know where the animal's going to go. So you don't have to make all the calls right away to the publicist and the sources you know. You know, you can probably start out with saying, oh, I know this is going. I think I have an idea.

How Can Life Emerge From Non-Life? Dr. Stephen Iacoboni Weighs In

"Just saying that science really came up with this preposterous idea. We certainly know it's preposterous now for honest that life emerged from non life. If you believe in evolution or natural selection, which I don't, but if you do, you can see the mechanism, there's a mechanism, reproduction, and you can see how things would change over time. You can get that idea. But the idea of life emerging from non life where there can be no evolution. You got nothing and then you got life, it seems to me that scientists are very wary of talking about that, that I think probably my guess is by now they're embarrassed because they know that you can't get from a to Z in a single bound. That's exactly right, Eric, and one of the things I did in my search for answers was to try and get those atheist scientists to slip up and admit something. And so there was a book by Franklin Harold called the ways of the cell. And I wrote a 6 page chapter in the book on him. And he ends his chapter by saying, even though I am a scientific atheist, we still don't understand the origin of life and until we do the mystics and the skeptics will continue to say that there is a God. And he was an emirate emeritus. And so he couldn't get in trouble to get fired because he wrote this book being slightly honest. What I write in my book is I try to stick to everything that is considered. Accepted science. I don't try and make things up. And so the received wisdom is that the universe is 15 billion years old with the Big Bang, which you write about. And then earth formed and it took a long time in a billion years later. There was life. So as tour says, and everyone knows, you can't get there from here, period. And so my book also goes on to say that there is a mystical force called telos, I just call it because Aristotle has helos. And they point out that he's a smart guy not me. And that somehow there is a driving force in nature that drives all living things and it drove the first cell somehow to become alive.

Donald Trump Is Grieving

"I feel badly for Donald Trump today. And I can honestly say I never felt that way. That's the first time in my life. I've ever felt that emotion about. Sadness, even when he lost the presidency, which we all think he won. I wasn't sad for him. I was angry for him. But it's the first time I think I've ever seen him stop and be wounded. It's a very strange thing to see. I know the man and I know and remember all too well what he sounded like. A big bodied billionaire real estate tycoon who helped build my city, perhaps more than anyone ever has or ever will. And he did it all with Ivana at his side. Now I know he must have been sad when divorced came and Marla Maples leaped into his heart and his home. But he didn't show it really. That just wasn't what he was about. He's an old school, hardened guy. The kind who believed crying, weakens a man. That to stop and grieve is to slow down and what do I always say? Lose momentum and Trump is a guy that love is momentum. And I'm not worried about him regaining it back at all. In fact, I think if anything, this kind of thing will propel him forward with the kind of a new result and a fury that we haven't seen. I think Yvonne is death in some profound and mystic way will propel him into the next presidential race with a different type of passion and energy. I think this is his let's win one for the gipper moment building up, if you will.

"mystics" Discussed on The Her Hoop Stats Podcast

"This would be like getting mad. If you're mad at Mike Tebow, this is like getting mad stuff curry for hosting the order. It's not my Tebow's fault that the WNBA is forcing their teams to fly commercial. It's not. During a pandemic, they not in one of the worst workers shortages, the airlines have ever seen. That's the problem. I've identified the problem. That's the only problem. And like, look, yeah, Mike could have been more sympathetic. He's a guy, Mike is very honest and straightforward in his press conferences. He's very funny. He is great for me because I am a medium member covering the team and I really appreciate Mike. And I hope he never changes. And he never will, because he does not care about your opinion. But I get where he's coming from. He's like, look, it's not our problem that the Lee makes teams do this. It's going to happen to us. And when it happens to us, no one's going to feel bad. There you go. And then he said that after the game too, although another person brutally honest and press conference. Like as Elizabeth well, he was just trying to be like, you know, kind of sympathetic. Edge tour is like, come on, you can't feel bad for this happen to us. I get it. I get where the mystics are coming from. I understand why the links feel slighted by the league because the league didn't do anything to help them. The league kind of just let them dangle out there and deal with all the airlines by themselves. And deal with the forcing the links basically to ask them mystics for concessions rather than whatever solution was going to happen coming from the league, right? Right. I understand that. But at the end of the day, the only if you're mad about the situation, the people that you met at are the WNBA and the current collective bargaining agreement and hopefully it'll change because it's very silly for us to still be doing this at this point. Yeah, I mean, I just think like what you said, it's not Mike Tebow that's like, you know, delaying the fights and making it impossible to change the game time. You know, it's not him. And impossible for the team to charter the plane because Minnesota's owners have money. It's Alex Rodriguez. He has enough money to charter a plane in the time it would take for them for the links to get on the air. He could have done it if it was a lot. Right. If it was allowed, and I think that's something that's, like we said, you know, it's a continued process. As they're trying to move the needle in that direction. And we see that. I mean, it's on the way. It's not going to happen. Clap of a hand, a snap of a finger, it's not going to happen like that. And life is life and things happen that way. And is it miserable to be delayed? Absolutely. I think everybody listening and everyone, the two of us. We've been delayed when we've traveled and is now fun, but on top of that, you would have to compete after that. And I get it. So, you know, that's a different animal as well. But, you know, I just think that it's over. It was said, and it was apologized for it was accepted. And we're done. We're done. We're done. Thank you, Mike, for null or hilarious GIF. Great. Mike is a legend in the category of creating content for us. And he's also a legend in the WNBA with the most wins. So it's not he's fine. I guess if we want to talk about it, I like him as a meme generator. But I guess we want to talk about winning his coach in WNBA history. We could do that too. I want to mention one more person. One more little bit of news. Brian Hartley ends up with the Connecticut sun after getting waived. I'm not sure if it was a buyout, I'm sorry. I was not paying attention to that closely because we're in the middle of the year. It doesn't really matter. She gets she gets a wave by Indiana. Yeah, the fever pick up my Davis in their continuing quest to accumulate as many young players as possible. And Hartley goes to the sun when we talked about the sun last. On our power rankings, we were concerned about their guard position. Bria Hartley is not going to be the answer to these problems. But I think she could be part of the solution and she gave them some pretty good minutes in their last game against I don't remember. I think it was Vegas, but I want to say it wrong because that would be wrong. It was the camp day game. Or no, it wasn't. Yeah, they play Vegas. The New York New York New York. Okay, I was New York yet. Another team that I want to talk about, but not for positive reasons. But she played pretty well. I thought she made some nice reads out of the pick and roll. I think she gave him good defense. I think she was another option there in that back court. And they need those options. This is taken away minutes from Nia clouden, which hurts my feelings, but I think it is a good move for Connecticut and it could pay off dividends in the class. Well, I like it because of the experience that bria Hartley brings to the table number one. I also, you know, she was having her best career numbers when she got hurt down there in the bubble. I think she was averaging 14 points and it almost four or 5 assisted game. But she had like a solid stat line that season and I think they were really counting on her. That year. But at the same time, I think for her to be able to get back physically. And mentally, you know, back in the fold and get a flow and be on a team that has some vets on it, you know, some players with some years under their belt. I think it's and it's tough for neo cloud and I get it, but at the same time, I think it does bolster their front line when they have, you know, their perimeter players who have experienced me without Jasmine Thomas on the floor. I think that's going to be a challenge, you know, as they push for the playoffs, they're going to need depth in that position, whether she plays gaudy minutes or not. I think it's really going to help them just with their knowledge. And you can see, you know, she was sitting there talking to Jasmine Thomas on the bench at one point during the game against New York. And she, you know, she's just trying to get the system and trying to get things and they were back and forth with one another. So I think that can be kind of an extension of Jasmine Thomas and that regard with her understanding of what's expected in that role. Yeah, and I think the bigger thing, you know, you mentioned depth

Has Eric Ever Read or Heard Christ in Solzhenitsyn's Work?

"I have studied Russian Russian language and literature and read everything by Solzhenitsyn, and I believe he was a moralist mystic spiritualist who loved mother Russia. Knowing the Christ of the Bible have you, Eric ever read or heard Christ in social needs since work or life? Pass. Next question. No, I think, see, this actually is one of the reasons I think this is a good question to answer is because I think one problem that some Christians have is they are overly theological, right? If I paint something to the glory of God, but I don't put Jesus lord in the margin of the painting. Is it a Christian painting? And I just think all goodness and truth and beauty is of God. And we need to reclaim that view of the world. There is not one square inch of all creation over which Jesus Christ to his sovereign does not say mine. That's the famous quote by Abraham Kuiper. And I think that if you read souls in, it becomes clear that a man who risked his life for the truth and who wrote books pointing to the truth and who was, in fact, a Christian that, in a way, for us to try to put him in a box and say, but he was a, but was he a Christian writer? Or was he just I think oftentimes we can err by doing

"mystics" Discussed on But Why: A Podcast for Curious Kids

"Is how to best girls get their color. Most basketballs are orange and the NBA basketball is kind of all orange. And the WNBA basketball is orange and white. What's going on with all the colors? It's actually a really interesting story. So when the WNBA was first started, it was an outgrowth from the NBA, which is the men's league. And it was really important at the time that we made sure that women were seen as athletes. And so their uniforms needed to be the same as the men's and the court needed to be the same as the men's and the basket. But what we did want to do was kind of create some differentiation between the game and the commissioner of the NBA at the time, David stern said, maybe we could do something with the basketball. And so they had the idea to turn the basketball two colors. So it's orange and oatmeal. We call the white color oatmeal. And it's really distinctive. So when you see that orange and oatmeal ball, you know that you're watching a WNBA game. But all of the basketballs, no matter what size they are or what their colors are, have these black lines on them. And I can't quite totally describe it, but the lines kind of go around the basketball. And we do have a couple of questions from kids who want to know why do basketballs have lines. Hi, my name is Wyatt. And I'm 5 years old. I'm from Essex stumps. Am I in a wondering why basketballs have those little black lines? Hi, my name is Erin. I'm living Huntsville, Alabama. Why do basketballs have lines on them? I don't know why that started off, but today we think about the basketball in segments, and there are actually 8 different segments that are differentiated by those lines. And the shape of the ball and the material of the ball and those segments are all designed to help players get a better grip on the ball and to control the ball as they're passing or as they're shooting. And so people smarter than me who work on creating sports equipment realize that creating that segmentation on the ball created a better opportunity for players to control the ball. Hi. My name is Brooke. I am ten years old and you can see in my question is if you want to play basketball, do you have to be a certain height? My name is Gus. I'm 5 years old. I live in Medford, Massachusetts, and I say my question. And my question is, do basketball players have to be tall? You do not have to be tall. You do not have to be tall. You can be tall. You could be sure you can be skinny. You can be a little thicker and that's the beauty of it. There's so many different ways to play the game of basketball. So anybody can play. You don't have to be told to play basketball, but I am pretty tall. I'm 6 three. That was chitauri walker kimbrough, followed by another player, Elizabeth Williams. And here's assistant coach Eric Tebow. There's enough examples of people that are not big that can make it in basketball and we've on our team have a 5 foot four Japanese point guard who doesn't speak English and because she loves the game and has worked really hard. She can make it just like somebody who's a foot taller. That 5 foot four player, her name is Rui machida, and I bet you can guess what she's going to say about whether or not you have to be tall. No. Rui just moved to the United States from Japan to play for the mystics, and she doesn't speak a lot of English yet. Rui has a person called a translator to help her out. He speaks Japanese and English, and he's also been a basketball coach. His name is mikita Takeda, and he makes sure Rui understands what her coaches and teammates and reporters like me are saying, and that they understand what she wants to say to them. Here's how Rui with help from miki answered the question about why you don't need to be tall. She said, no. And then obviously, even if you're short, you can play really well in WNBA and you can play better on basketball. So don't give out your dream and you just keep up your what you do in basketball. But you know, you can't just call up a team like the Washington mystics and say, hey, I'd like to play for you. Save me a spot and get put on the team. I'm Emma and I live in North Carolina. Basketball players just sign up or do they under job and why? No, you definitely have to earn your job. Whether you play it in college or overseas, there are coaches that look for you. And then you also have a training camp or try out sort of where coaches can decide if you make the team. My name is Elizabeth Williams. I play center for the Washington mystics of the WNBA. The players on the mystics and the other WNBA teams in the league are some of the very best basketball players in the whole world. And it's a big deal to get picked to play for one of these teams.

"mystics" Discussed on But Why: A Podcast for Curious Kids

"From Vermont public radio. I'm Jane lindholm, and that is not our theme music. That's music and sound from a special event I went to a few weeks ago to report this episode. That's the guy who does the arena announcements for one of the very top sports teams in the country. Maybe you could make out what he was saying and you've already guessed what team it is. The Washington mystics, a basketball team that plays in a league called the WNBA. Only the very best basketball players in the whole country and sometimes the world play in this league. Come on. And today, those sports superstars are going to answer the questions you've sent us about basketball and what it's like to be a professional athlete. Have you ever been to a basketball game? The game I got to watch was between the Washington mystics, who won the whole championship in 2019, and the Chicago sky, who won the championship last year. Because we'd been invited by the mystics, and I was in their home arena with their hometown crowd, I was rooting for Washington. But Chicago dominated the game. Not only were more of their shots going in, but they did a really good job on defense, shutting down the mystics and winning the game decisively. 73. Watching a big professional game like that is exciting, both on and off the court. Sometimes it's even hard to concentrate on the game, because all the fans around you are cheering. When there's a break between periods, there was a kid's dance troupe that came out and performed for the crowd. At one point, there were people hurling t-shirts up into the crowd, music played almost constantly. There were flashing lights and videos up on a big screen, and there was plenty of food and drinks to eat during the game. It's a whole scene. But I was there for the basketball. So the next day I went back to the arena where the mystics play, but headed to a different court, the one where they practice. That's right. Even professionals have to practice. When I got there, assistant coach Eric Tebow and other members of the coaching staff were running drills with the team. They had already spent some time watching the video of the previous day's game to see where they made mistakes where they played really well, and how they could do things differently to be better in the next game. Teams also watch videos of the other teams they're about to play, so they can start to get a sense of how they can target their next opponents. After they were done practicing, some of the players were nice enough to come talk to me and answer the questions you sent us. So should we get to them? My name is Tori walker kimbrough. I'll play for the Washington mystics. I'm a shooting guard. I like to bring aggression on defense. I like to score. I like to facilitate, meaning make players around me better and be a team player. I like to bring energy as well and I like to have fun. Sure Tori walker kimbrough is going to help us out with a little overview of the game. In case you've never played before. The game of basketball, there's two baskets. And there's a ball, and then there's two teams, 5 players on each team. And the object is to score as many baskets in the opponent's basket. As you can. And try not to let the other team score in your basket. So you have to defend your basket and you have to score any other team's basket. Hi, I'm sai, I'm 11 years old, I'm from bright Ireland in my question is, who invented basketball? Thank you. How is basketball invented? Thanks for those questions sivan Gabriel. The person who gets credit for inventing basketball is a man named James Naismith. He was a gym teacher at a YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1891. That's more than a 130 years ago. Historians say he made up the game and wrote the original rulebook. The basketball Hall of Fame is now located in Springfield where the game was invented. My name is Karen and I'm 5 years old and I live in North Bethesda Maryland and my first student is why is there a hoop instead of a basket? Back when Naismith invented the game, apparently he asked a janitor to get him two boxes that he could hoist up high to use as the targets players would aim for when they wanted to score a point. But instead of boxes, he was given two baskets, and voila. Basketball. In the early days, people had to climb up on a ladder to get the balls out of the baskets after someone scored. Or use a pole or some other tool to get the ball out. But then they wisely started cutting the bottoms off to let the balls fall through. These days, the baskets are made of a metal rim or hoop with a woven cloth net, still open at the bottom, attached to it. So that's why basketball is sometimes referred to as hoops. Now, if you've ever played basketball, you already know another key part of the game. If you have the basketball in your possession, you can't just run down the court holding the ball. You can pass it, of course, but if you want to walk or run with the ball, you have to bounce it up and down as you go. That's called dribbling. And once you stop dribbling, you can't move your feet anymore, so you have to either shoot or pass the ball. So it's really important in basketball to know how to dribble well. It's also pretty hard, especially when you're just getting started. Right now I'm just dribbling a basketball. My hand stays on top of the ball. And I kind of just push it down and it comes back up. It's bouncing it and keeping your hand on top of the ball. Yeah, that's how you drove a basketball. When you start to do it and you're running, that's a lot harder. And when somebody's chasing you or in front of you and trying to get the ball away, how do you protect the ball? I kind of keep my body in between the ball and the person to protect it using my body, but also keeping my head up so that I can see my defender. And I can see my other teammates that are open. Hello, my name is Graham. I am from Salt Lake City. I am 6 years old. And my question is, why do basketballs bounce? Basketball's bounce because when you push them toward the ground and then they hit the ground, the ground actually puts an equal force back into the ball, and that energy has to go somewhere. If the ball was made out of silly putty or Jell-O, it would just ooze out and jiggle on the floor to spread that energy out. But because the ball is made of an elastic material, it springs back into place and bounces up from the ground. Hi, my name is Katie. I am 9 years old, and I live in calico, New York, and my question is, why do balls spin when you bounce them? Balls don't always spin when you bounce them. Some are designed for spinning, like a football, but making the ball spin or not spin depends on what you're doing with your hand or a racket or a bat or whatever it is you're using to move the ball. Sometimes you want a lot of spin and sometimes you don't. So if the ball is spinning in a way you don't want it to, Katie, you have to keep practicing and get a good coach to help you see how to change what you're doing with your hands. My name is ala and I'm 6 years old and I live in Vancouver BC and my question is, how many basketballs does the team have? We have a lot of basketballs. That's Allison Macaulay. She's not a player or a coach. She helps run the business side of things for the Washington mystics. There's probably about 50 basketballs that are available to the players who are practicing. And we have WNBA basketballs, but we also have NBA basketballs, and we have weighted basketballs, which are extra heavy, but help you as you're trying to practice more. There's probably a basketball, and every office, so we sign basketballs, and we save them as mementos, so in addition to the ones we're playing, they're kind of everywhere. So I would hazard to guess that we probably have like a hundred to 200 basketballs just right here in this facility. Hi, my name is Molly, and I'm four years old and I live in Detroit and my weekend.

"mystics" Discussed on The Her Hoop Stats Podcast

"There's a ton of little guards across basketball and they know all the little tricks to get to get steals and all that. So I think Ruiz just a huge part of what this team is doing. Trying to think of who else we need to talk about because Shakira has been up and down, but I think she's been pretty good. What have you seen from The Rookie so far? I think she is, she's really getting more and more comfortable, every practice, every game we were at the practice yesterday. And she just seems to she knows the challenge that's in front of her. And she's not afraid of it, right? She knows that they're going to be up and down, you know, you know, everybody, not just rookies, but in particular, rookies, right? So I think she has embraced that. She's not looking for a perfection, and I'm thinking anyone else is either with her, but what you do see from her is the will to get better and kind of go through that adversity as a rookie. And not cower away from it. Not like get frustrated by like, oh man, this is fast, or oh man, I thought I had that play or thought I had that block or that rebound or whatever. You know, she's going to go for it. And I appreciate that, you know, from her and just that will to compete. And not just on the court against opponents, but compete for minutes. She's competing for minutes and practice. She's going hard. I mean, there are no plays off with her. Offensively or defensively. So I'm just really pleasantly surprised. And it's really hard, especially as a post player, I think, who was used to getting the ball out. And I think my Tebow said this as well. Like, you know, the ball went through her. I think she had 30% usage at old miss. So she was getting a lot of touches, the offenses were running through her. And now with the mystic, she's a screen setter. And your touch may be offensive less. You know, go get the rebound. But they went to her a couple of times directly, but I just think, you know, it's not the same kind of vibe. Like you're not maybe the third or fourth option. Right. And defensively, you got to have more than just two or three pick and roll coverage. You might have to have 5 or 6. So that's a huge adjustment both sides, but you have to think faster. It's not when people say, oh, the game is quicker. Sometimes you just think, like, quicker as in, like, how fast can you sprint from baseline to baseline? That's not really what that means. It means you've got to be thinking quickly. On the floor and it's got to be precise. Like you can think about it, and you've got to execute it. Like, you know what to do, but you've got a split second to get it done. And that's what the speed of the game is when people say, oh, the speed is different on the professional level. It's the thought process that's the difference. No, I agree with everything you said. I think the one thing a couple things for her that are big is like, like you said, not getting discouraged by not getting as many touches. Not getting discouraged when she gets beat on defensively. I think she's just a player who kind of just keeps it moving. Like I'm not whatever. Last player we're going to deal with that when I watch the tape and I'll get better from that later. But she's not going to sit there and say, oh, poor me. I got beat on this, you know, I ran the wrong coverage or I didn't get the ball on this possession or whatever, whatever. Like she's just going to keep it moving, which I think is huge for a rookie. I think she has a great mentality for a rookie. Also, she likes to mix it up. She's a talker. She's going to stand up for her teammates, like at the end of that aces game, the Erica hamby kind of kind of gave Katie Benson a little extra on a foul. And then Shakira was right there. In her face, you know, try to protect her teammate. After the gauge, it has to be like, hey, what does that thing with him? She's like, hey, and I know beef sheet. She threw down my teammate. I had to go protect my teammate. And I was like, that's awesome. That's exactly what you want. You want to have the fire. You want to have that edge. I think she has that. She has the right mentality. And then I think that the game is going to come to her. I think she's going to be, you know, I think by the end of this season, we're going to see a different player. So I'm really impressed with the mystics overall. Obviously, we didn't mention my issue shines out and she's been great. A dog Tiana Hawkins also huge for this team. Hasn't played that many minutes yet, but she's getting going and she's just been huge in terms of connecting the offense, hitting shots, doing all those little things. And obviously I mentioned earlier Atkins, but I think she's going to take, I'm still the one thing I'll say. Let me know if you agree with this. For Ariel Atkins is she talked a lot about in the off season getting to the rim. Right. More. She hasn't quite done that. You know, I want to see her just kind of push her head down like I almost rather her get a charge. Run over somebody. Just do it. Not to injure anybody, but just like just because to get to the rim, and the aces game, she had a couple possessions where I was like, okay, her eyes were downhill and her intention was downhill. And then that forced defense to move around and she was able to get those passes I was talking about. And I was just like, that's what I want. That's why I want to see more. It's like, maybe you're not getting shots at the rim, but your intention is to go to the rim and then your defense has to adjust to that rather than those pull out shots where she's kind of shooting off balance. And she's great at them, but getting downhill will be huge. Do you think am I right there or my off base? Yeah, no, I think, you know, the spacing that the mystics have in their offense. I think that really does afford opportunities to do that, but it's all predicated upon how defense is playing and you know that next level. I think obviously she can get by probably her first defender like her primary defender. But it's that next line, but like you said, she's a great crafty passer as well. So when that second line does commit, she's able to still make plays. So I think, you know, we're going to probably see more of that come from her. And her attack of the paint and to get in there and not just for scoring capabilities for herself, but scoring capabilities for the team as well. Yeah, and the last thing I want to mention on this we're mainly talking about the mystic spaces game, the mystics Minnesota game. We'll talk about the links in just a second. We're going to put that off to the side. And then they're opening one. Who they play? Oh, Indiana, Indiana, which is a large area. We may have to talk about in this podcast. No, but in the aces game, like I just wanted to mention that the aces did have to travel like 12 hours or something. There was some sort of like crazy travel, which always happens when there's a mystic spaces game. Something's going to go wrong. When the mystic plenty aces. So maybe we shouldn't take that much from it. For ehler team, just like the travel does affect your stamina, I think it affected the aces a lot in that second half. I think, you know, to a certain extent, I think you can view it as an excuse for the aces or not an excuse just like a reason why something's happened, but I also think like what we saw from the mystics was real. And then what we saw from the aces may not be as real if that makes sense. That's fair? I think that's fair. I think that's fair. I mean,.

Going from champions to missing the playoffs. Losing franchise favorites and picking up other ones and then losing those ones within a year. It has been just bonkers for the Washington mystics. It has been a roller coaster ride for every mystics fan for the last three seasons. Are we going to finally get some sense of normalcy back in Washington,.

"Because Emma and Elena have so much of a similar skill sets in many ways they overlap that, you know, if delon's back at full strength and you have mess, that's a deadly combination and the rest of the team can kind of ride that wave. If diligence not fully back, granted, we're going to be looking at more of a team. Honestly, a more retooled team than the version that we saw in the bubble. And I think that's where things get a little scary or what I like to see a Sydney Weiss version where she can be more of a facilitator and a score. Yeah. But at the end of the day, I think this team, you know, they're not SOL, but they are not a championship contender granted. You bring delled on in, you have the best player in the world. You could very well argue you are a championship contender. I just think they have some young talent and to not give my ish of the reins. That's where I'm going basically with it. Is you give my issue of the ring. Go get Sylvia foul, screw it. Right? And you know what, Rachel? You know what? Like, let's break some news. There's some rumors. I've heard from multiple people. I don't know how public this is. But a few years back, you know, there was some discussion. The Washington mystics were making a hard push to get Sylvia fowls, I believe it was like the season that the links were just trash with all of their players before the dynasty completely broke up. But I mean, there's definitely interest. You have to think that a vet coach like coach T of at GM, but again, like for me, they call me crazy, and I know that I'm a Homer, so maybe it's because it's a hometown thing, but I have to think that the links in the mystics are equally close to a finals run. You know, obviously there's a lot of question marks. Of course. Yeah, yeah. It's hard to really break it down. You'd have to just break it down scenario by scenario, you know, but it's that type of free agent that I think Washington would have to go after. Literally a defensive player of the year. A first team type of player who comes in and chills the role of essentially in what you'd be losing in Tina Charles. And depending on how that fits along with compliments, delegate, I personally think it's kind of that center aspect. And then you have Heinz Allen in there where you can kind of shift things up a little bit and maybe play a little bit smaller or shift some people through different positions. But I think if you get a dominant center in there, I mean that's essentially what they tried to do last year. That's still kind of what they need assuming Charles is not returning. Yeah, no, I agree. Well, that's it for this episode. Moving on..

He'll say the trauma was not actually those things that happen to you when you're little or whenever they happen to you if it was that would be actually impossible affairs because you can't go back in time to when you were three with.

11 House Democrats Object to Ilhan Omar's Comments on Hamas and Israel

"Democrats are going after one of their own representative ilhan omar after she asked a perfectly legitimate question to anthony blinken. Who is the secretary of state. Now the question how to do with the investigations pertaining to war crimes that have been committed by various organizations or various governments and so the critical statement There was a critical statement following the hold on. Let's take that down. There was a critical statement by her colleagues following the exchange that you're about to watch right now with representative omar anthony blinken take a look. I know you oppose the investigation in both palestinian and enact ghanistan. I haven't seen any evidence. In either cases that mystic boards can both can and will prosecute alleged warcrimes and times against humanity and i would emphasize that in israel and palestine. This includes crimes committed by both israel security forces them hamas in afghanistan and includes crimes committed by the afghan national government and the taliban so in both of these cases if domestic points can't or won't pursue justice and me opposed the sec. Where do we think the victims of this oppose it. Crimes can goal for justice so that was an important question to ask because the international criminal court which wants to probe the israeli government for possible war crimes against the palestinian people in gaza that the united states government the biden administration specifically does not support. So she's trying to ask well if you don't agree with the international criminal court investigating this and we can't rely on domestic governments to investigate their own warcrimes. Then how do you propose we do. These

"It. Yeah rage it's making it worse so all in all i mean. Coffee has positive and negative effect shore. And you just know your body and how it affects. You and i take it inauguration. Whatever as as long as the body can stay hydrated him from water. You know because as you're drinking coffee like you need to drink that much water in addition to the water that you already should drink like one one to one so three cups of coffee needed drink. Three cups of water. Plus whatever might. Yeah and you did give us that figure once. What was it again. It's different for every wait. In half your rate in half an ounce is like a good baseline it's a little bit better than just saying everybody drink glass right because everybody's different size your weight cut in half an ounce and then for our international listeners not announces but whatever half milliliter in however leaders or water leaders. Yeah i don't know either start. You guys what you're doing. Yeah sorry we're not on the same metrics makes way more sense but anyway i don't understand it so i think more than even that like we should be listening looking for signs of dehydration and listening to her body when it says that we're thirsty and just maybe maybe like the trick is to not pay attention to a certain amount of water to drink. Just like drink or yeah. Yeah all right so just real. Quick about decaf decaf. Coffee is sometimes on alternative to regular but keep in mind that the removal of the caffeine is from the coffee bean which is done like in a processing way chemicals. Yeah it you're actually taking away the good stuff that's fair the antioxidants and polyphenyls really and maybe even like bad down. Also i would sometimes get organic de half. does that that maybe. The chemicals aren't maybe. Yeah i mean because we're speaking to the bean. When i was pregnant i would drink decaf. Yes you know. You're not supposed to have caffeine when you're pregnant. I feel like there's still some caffeine. There's still Just not the same. Yeah and i also heard that the darker the roast though less caffeine there isn't it i i ask your buddy. Yes my having Yeah somebody come. We're gonna have a little more in depth discussion with somebody who roasts coffee bonus episode. Yeah can't wait. And i wanna like that. The caffeine they do take away Whatever it is whatever they leave behind they are taking some out coffee. The coffee industry cells that caffeine to the pharmaceutical industry and the food industry home to put back in to painkillers. Painkillers have caffeine and they give they also sell it to like soda companies to put the hearing in their drink. Wow well yeah. That's interesting same and on that out. Oh a little disturbing some of it. I will still drink my coffee. Drink my coffee. I drank while. I drink a couple cups morning.

"So okay. So then there's more mature. Signs of dehydration Heartburn because it takes moisture to create stomach acid. Okay makes sense. Yeah joint pain okay. There's no shock. Absorption back pain migraines fibromyalgia which is chronic fatigue. Constipation because your body can't of the ways. Yes and colitis which is an inflammatory reaction in the colon. He's up get like stomach cramps. yeah So we do it to ourselves just like a by the sparkling water. We put things in our bodies that help dehydration like what trying. Yeah really yeah. And of course these beverages deplete are hydration reserves calls the negative effect and like we said soda tease alcohol and coffee. These are all diabetics. Anything with caffeine. Which i'm going to go into so this means. They deplete the hydration within the body by causing arteries veins to vaso construct. So they get smaller and tighter. That doesn't sound good. Doesn't it not sound good. Yeah so okay. So what happens when we drink coffee. Antion sodas and all the other shot him instead of water. Okay so the natural stimulants in coffee are large quantities of copper and lesser amounts of. Theo filane so theo. Filing it is in coffee. It's a natural stimulant in. it is just like the fan. The it's additional substance. Yeah yeah found in coughing lesser amounts than caffeine. But still so. Theo filing it opens the airways in your lungs but lacks the muscles and decreasing the response to substances that. Cause your airways to constrict. So it's like doing the opposite of what it's supposed to do. Oh it's like relaxing relaxing. Your long must work good work okay. Might makes it like like lazy. Yeah okay. Because i was thinking. That doesn't sound bad necessarily feels. Oh you breathe more easily but no yelling that it makes it less effective height Less effect just like it makes the beans and arteries like less effect. Us a factor. Yeah tightening yeah can't flow yell at through. Yeah so both caffeine. And the theo filing our central nervous system stimulants and dehydrating agents because of their strong diuretic on the kidneys the kidney filters blood and gets waste ready to leave the body so one cup of coffee contains about eighty five milligrams of caffeine so it takes one thousand milligrams to make one gram and one gram is about the size of the paper clip k stick of gum arrays them a thumb tack. That's one gram is not weird to think of it. It helped me because when you look at like sugar quantity in a drank. Twenty five grams as twenty. Five reasons sticks Wow all right good. I'll be able to apart this information to my family. Yeah so that's when you think about it one cup of coffee contains eighty five milligrams of caffeine. It takes one milligrams to make one gram okay. So we're not talking like a big quantity. I think he's just very powerful. Engine traded concentrated. Yeah so for healthy adults about four hundred milligrams which is about four cups of caffeine per day is considered safe and doesn't raise any particular health concerns. Let's have can. I just ask you a quick. Yeah did you ever read the girl with the dragon. Tattoo your yeah. Do you remember in that book. They are constantly putting on that whole series concierge cups of coffee. Yeah and that was in sweden. Was it not yes. Evidently they drink more coffee than anybody. Yeah and that's demonstrated as demonstrated by that. I mean it's like all day long. They're going to start investigating this. We're going to talk about this put on a couple of carpet on. They do. And certainly when i was when i lived there. I remember seeing like there's coffee all the time. Will they have fica which was like the snack in the afternoon and afternoon. Coffee coffee coffee everywhere. I remember like i would send back coffee home to my parents and grandparents day. Love that yeah. I didn't drink it them. I didn't i was like seventeen. Eighteen has its drinking coffee where in high school Yeah one girl and my high school drank coffee like all the time carrying it around all the time we rely on continental we go to the the diner and me and my friends and we would sit and drink coffee coffee house but it was nothing enlightened happening. Yeah okay so back to what happens when we to us when we drink up so the central nervous stimulants they release energy and for the scienc- people in the body. It's called atp at the energy so the stimulants in the coffee released the ep from are stored energy and cells. So that's what caffeine is doing. It's releasing your stored energy so it's giving you energy. It's on your energy and like yeah and shooting it out to you so as it takes energy storage it is overriding the body's natural release of energy. So when it comes time for the body to need that energy that was there. It's like not there since rob being robbing your energy. Yeah so because of that. Certain hormones and transmitters that are just minding their own business In your body it will be limited because caffeine is already like taking it. So caffeine causes this override effect until a lower level of energy storage is reach so excess caffeine will end up depleting the atp stored energy in the brain and body possibly contributing to short attention spans especially in children jinking. These says yeah and sugary drinks energy drinks because all the all caffeine has the same effect short so a consumption can also cause chronic fatigue syndrome. And eventually too much. Intake of caffeine will exhaust the heart muscle because of over-stimulation. You don't exhaust the heart now. Terrible now so yeah it has also been shown that the effects of drinking caffeine inhibits an important enzyme. Just going to say it's the pd enzyme involved in.

They like forgot. Would it feels like to be thirsty all these years. They've been ignoring up and then now it's too late. Yeah so they so other things happen to their body more illness and are like treated by medication but really like walker could help just stay hydrated so water is the most common nutritional deficiency in the american population. Okay just america or everywhere. That's i'm guessing it's probably americans are like a little bit more like crazy. Yeah sorry. I can't picture everybody's like here with us or something i know. So they're just because we're americans. Typically i guess drink more soda. Drink a gatorade. Yeah which supposedly has electrolytes but it doesn't and there's nothing that there's so much sugar in those in those quote unquote sports drinks that there's just no point in drinking them at all right.

"So they used it to stay awake so the champs so they could chant and pray so the sixteenth century historian od'd al kabeer zero wrote. An account of coffees early religious use. He explains that the sufis would drink coffee. Every friday and monday evening they would pour it into a large vessel made out of red clay. The leader would later the liquid out with a small dipper passing to the right way. They recite the prayer. There's no god. But god the master the clear reality so they would chant that as they were drinking and passing the coffee. Interesting right yeah okay. So sufi mystics claimed that coffee when consumed with proper devotional intent could lead to the experienced. Now this is tricky of god. What safiya which okay. So that's three words right It translates into quote the enjoyment. Which the people i'm like. Why three lose okay. It translates into the enjoyment which the people of god feel in beholding the hidden mysteries and attaining and attaining the wonderful disclosures and the great revelations so we love god i guess it so yes the experience of irrigation coffee would lead to this wonderful disclosures in great revelations it kind of opens your okay mind right. Receives a message of god self. There is a professor named stephen topic t. o. p. i k. He's a professor of history at the university of california irvine and he specializes in the political world. Economy's seen through. The history of coffee is like it's valued specialist. I mean yeah so. I know what major takes us cough on the political world economies through coffee so he writes men and women together shared a common bowl. That was passed around. So it's similar to what i was saying. The initial objective of coffee drinking was to transcend the material world and find peace so blends right. Does though coffee was finding its spiritual place. Among some in the islamic world against existence was not without controversy. Dunk dumped on. So islam forbids the use of intoxicants like wine patent some religious authorities view coffee as an intoxicant. An argued it should be forbidden. Some melas complained that the faithful were actually being lured away from mosques by the attraction of coffee houses so they were going to the mosque yet. so the coffee houses in arabic. The name is cough. Vais khan k. H. a. n. e. h. comey in these coffee. Houses popped up along the primary pilgrimage routes between mecca on the arabian peninsula and other parts of that area. So these are starting to kind of just pop up. Okay yeah so. According to topic or coffee professor guy concerns about people meeting in coffee. Houses were justified as houses served as headquarters for the planning of revolutions in seventeen eighty-nine nine france in eighteen. Forty eight berlin. Budapest in venice. So a mainland means how we're gonna. I almost feel like i watch the documentary Karl marx not too long ago when we were doing our russian revolution young. Assad and i feel like he was meeting in coffee houses to our having their big discussions like thinking about things and play the people and all that. Yeah so it is a place where you can do. Yeah yeah so coffee. This yeah totally. So coffeehouses were fertile grounds for the cultivation of ideas. Yeah patrons found that engaging in conversation in an egalitarian. Fashion made the spread of new ideas desirable. And autzen delightful. We were all this on gatherings. What about this. They're talking fast. A little need to do something. We need to get something done. Yeah so the spirit that allowed for the free and easy sharing of ideas and the rise of new idealized notions of humankind was inherent to the coffeehouse culture of the eighteenth century and to the advent of the enlightenment of the age of enlightenment To see the relation of enlightened thought and politics as coffeehouse culture expanded in seventeen hundreds look no further than good old benjamin franklin who held his political meetings and discussions exclusively in coffee houses when he was in london. I'm only meeting in life and he drink my coffee. Let's talk then funding. So he spent so much time in coffee houses that he even had his sister sent his mail there. Oh really yeah. He's what i'm here anyway in the mail. I don't want to go to my house and luggage. Coffeehouse to is so ben. Franklin was not the only great thinker. That had a love or obsession on the johann. Sebastian bach wrote a short opera about coffee. Obsession what what does this have to write it down. I never knew so. He wrote a short offer about his coffee obsession. The famed composer was a notable coffee. Fiend he though he's not well regarded for his humor. I guess he was a rather serious game He turned amusing poem written by one of his collaborators into the coffee cantina seventeen thirty two. So that's what it's called. Oh the cantina marked. The public outcry about the rise of the vienna coffeehouse scene at the time coffee was regarded as dangerous. Societal vice In italy vienna. The i mean sorry. I talk about italy. I'm like italy. everything's got italy. This was via beethoven. Another composer was also obsessive about his coffee. According to one of his biographers he would brew his drink with sixty beans per cup which he would count by hand. These guys were really like to sixty so voltaire. Who was the famous satirist. Who wrote candied now. Did you read candied. I did but don't ask me about yeah. I read it to so on my shelf at home. I've actually often thought. I should read this again yet because it was kinda crazy skinny little skinny very complicated for like your grandparents. He was like yeah like on the summer reading list or something. Yeah and there was also some kind of like the racy scenes in remember. I think there was a reason. Remember being like wow. I can't believe they're like now. What do you think this means. I'm only fifteen. I don't know what that means. They were other books like rebecca. I loved that that was like super. That was a great book. What was so great about it with all the gas lighting. Yeah i mean. It's the cycle the psychological aspect. Yeah i read it. In seven days and i absolutely. Whenever my head. I read it was daphne dumas. That book out of that really loved it. I remember loving that book but it was really disturbing if you think about it now. Yes so voltaire. The famous satirist. Who wrote candied is perhaps one of the most avid coffee addicts in history. He reportedly consumed somewhere between forty and fifty cups of coffee a day. That's a lot a yeah i mean. Did he do anything else but drink. Coffee probably didn't drink anything.

"And we'll talk more about the theater on our social social media reports and pictures and stuff. It's really nice theater really happy to be able to be here recording. Yeah yeah so today. We're talking about coughing coffee. We do big like i said in our last episode. I really didn't want you to ruin coffee for me. But i don't think i'm going. Yeah okay 'cause you're outta ruined. Microwaves for me. What did iran microwave but every time we do it like this is terrible. I probably wouldn't give up coffee regardless of what you said. But i'm interested in hearing what you have to say okay. So coffee has become an unremarkable. Daily ritual. I mean we just grammar coffee house do it. It is ubiquitous. There's a starbucks on every corner It's no more than an afterthought for the most part of unless you don't have it in which case the problem first thing on my having stayed somewhere in the morning you're just like i can't do anything until for coffee disappointed at the hotel coffee to you. Know give you the coffee maker. Never fake creamer. Now i started traveling with my friends sprouts. Actually not that. I travel a lot bill now. But how do you just do hot water from the sink or wilbur. Coffee makers in hotel rooms just brew. Hot water is so smart. And then i just put the water in my good coffee in my my good good tip. Yeah right. i'm gonna. i'm gonna do that tax. Pack the coffee that you need the grind because the pay honestly hate the hotel coffee. oh it's undrinkable. Unless they have a coffee stand downstairs. You know place around the corner town which Historians believe the coffee bean traces its origins to africa. Perhaps in ethiopia there is evidence that mountain tribesmen in ethiopia chewed the coffee beans as far back as five. Seventy five b. c. e. o. I'm not sure what that evidence is if it's like drawings or you know some other organic matter. That was petrified that they were able to see this. I'm thinking all i'm thinking of is like spending issue. Yeah dip debt. Yeah and they use. That is coffee. Bean dip your. Maybe i mean we get similar. Sort of lake hit but the beans were not brewed into the delicious drink. We know and love today until the made their way to yemen. Discovered some of this as well so there is some speculation that an arab muslim philosopher named rosa. A okay roses along those lines. He lived around five fifty two nine twenty two c. so current era Wrote about coffee calling it bunch him. However by the thirteenth century there's clear evidence that coffee was being consumed as we know it today in yemen. It was known there as pa which is tied to the eric arabic word kaha meaning to have no hunger that word means to have no hunger presumably because the drink limits appetites. Yeah which you might talk about a little. it's interesting So as the drinks spread through the islamic world the name evolved and the turks called it caught vais so k. a. h. v. which led to the italian world. Excuse me to the italian word cafe. Ooh right so it's the evolution of the word itself which you know that's all is often interesting. No right cafe like restaurant cafe okay. It's also the word for coffee exactly cafe or whatever yeah home so it was in yemen that we see the dark alluring liquid being used in religious rituals by the sufi mystics. So sufism can generally be defined as the esoteric dimension of islam The devotional exercises of sufis aim to achieve direct connection with the divine through. Song dance enchanting.
