The Difference Between Pro-Life and Pro-Choice

"The rape and incest exception. How many times have you heard somebody say. How many times have you heard. Politician say well. i'm pro-life an ibm. As far as i'm concerned let's outlaw all abortion except for rape and incest. Okay that is not a pro-life politician. You are not a prolife person if you say that. Here's where the heavy lifting begins. It's it is not an easy thing. It is a sobering thing. It is a is a thing of great gravity to address. Shall we say the community of people who have been victims of rape and incest and say guess what his immoral for you to terminate that pregnancy. It just is. But i've been raped. They'll say i understand. And i never walk in those shoes. Obviously the shoes of a rape victim of the shoes of pregnant person. I get that but like what jen psaki might tell you. On a given day men get to weigh in on this too because it is in fact a human life issue and not just a women's issue and here's the bottom line that newly created life no at circumstance is either sacred or it's not the basis of all pro-life ness is that the unborn. Human life is sacred. But just the thing that's kind of some value in a thing we'd like to preserve if you there's inconveniences or no bad circumstance sacred sacred mean sacred you to believe that or you don't if you believe that abortion becomes okay if there's rape and incest than you don't believe in the sacredness of you of that unborn human life and you are thus ready pro choice. You may not be as radically pro-choice somebody. You says that abortion was okay if you just one kid or or whatever but you are nonetheless. Pro-choice the definition of prolife requires the definition of that unborn. Human life is sacred

The Importance of Pretend Play and Fantasy for Kids

"Really kind of raising topic that i think is so important. Because you're talking about pretend play and fantasy and the role that pretend play has for kids exploring different identities different feelings different experiences and then you're also highlighting okay. I see that. But where's the line between pretend play and kind of a flat out lie. Is there a line at all. And what do i do so a couple big ideas that i think we can use as a foundation. The line between fantasy and reality is not as clear for kids as it is for adults. I think you. And i know there's no way you saw komodo dragon i think you and i know there's no way you could have even gotten to the store on your own. Forget even buying candy are reality kicks in so quickly as adults and there's somewhat of a benefit to this right. We're all very in touch with what's actually real in front of us. And i think actually if we all pause there's something we really lose by the time or adults which is the ability to kind of really wrapped up into a world of wonder and imagination. I think it would benefit you to just kind of look at your son with awe right in terms of. Wow you've really can get wrapped up in this whole other world. The other thing that's really important to remember about kids. Is that kids. Learn in play. This is their workspace for life. This is where they can figure out how brave they can be. This is where they can express different parts of themselves. This is where they can kind of push the limits kids who pushed the limits in play. Fantasy tend not to push the limits as often with a sibling or on the playground with the friend because they have a safer space. And so what i hear from you is a kid who's exploring so many things in the exact medium. We've kind of want a kid to explore in the safety and limitless -ness of play.

Is Racism in America Causing the High Rate of Black Fatherlessness?

"The moment that we all of a sudden de-emphasized fathers being in the home and subsidized fatherless-ness. We saw all these other trends increase so in the one thousand nine right before the civil rights act passed about twenty four percent of black children. Were born without a father. Now it's upwards of seventy percent you guys can look at the washington examiner. It's seventy seven percent. Let's say it's sixty five percent so something has to explain that forty point increase back yet. Just let me finish yet. And and it's not necessarily that. America got more racist. It could be the cocaine thing which you know is a common issue. It could be operations of all these things. But a forty point increase. I would point to a culture. Fatherless-ness really bad government run public schools and then subsidizing behavior. That isn't good so there are a few things that i can agree with you. On first of all having to people in your house to raise you pretty essential You absolutely this is undeniable While i don't believe in shaming single parents even if they're single parent did mrs bad decision making. It's still good you need. It's up in this economy one parent honestly but with that being said there has been research shown that the rate of black fatherless-ness is somewhat over exaggerated in large part because that number only applies to married fathers so husbands raising their children. It turns out when you account for unmarried. Black couples taking care of their kids. The numbers actually rise to those just think just below white couples. I think there was an article on that. I don't know if i remember sought advice but attracts back. Some really big study. That was done back in two thousand sixteen So that's one point but you are right. There are perverse incentives for example Many welfare Stipulations cut off With a shared income which is only a few thousand dollars per year higher than the necessary. Cutoff for the single income. Meaning that if you're a single mom You can apply for the welfare just fine but then if you get married or otherwise file jointly you get you go above the cap for welfare. This is a horribly program undeniably ended incentivizes bad destructive

"ness" Discussed on Strange and Unexplained with Daisy Eagan

"The modern day fascination with old nasty started in nineteen thirty three when aldy mckay and her husband were driving along loch ness and we all know that lock is scottish for lake right so they were driving along the loc when less than a mile out in the water. Algae mckay reported seeing a tremendous upheaval on the lock which previously had been a calm as a proverbial mill pond. That was my scottish accent. Mckay said she saw what she thought looked like the body of some huge creature resembling awale rolling and diving churning the water into a bubbling foam. The creature was large enough that when it took its final dive under the water sent out huge waves. Mckay and her husband stayed on the road for half an hour waiting to see if they would spot whatever it was again. But in that time it never resurfaced the only paper that ran a story about the mckay. Strange encounter was the inverness. Corier other than that. No one seemed very interested less than three months later married. Couple mr and mrs spicer. We're driving south along loch mess. When they claim to see a huge prehistoric creature. Cross the road in front of them headed toward the lake according to an interview. The spicer's gave to rupert gould. Who wrote the first book about the loch ness monster. The creature had a long neck and a low thick body about four or five feet high. Mr spicer said he couldn't see legs or tail but he did see something flopping up and down which he later thought was a tail curled around toward the front of the animal. The couple said they couldn't tell if they're creature entered the water because their view was obstructed. And they couldn't hear anything over the sound of their engine. The author gould however claimed to have been watching the lake the same day. The spicer's say they witnessed this thing cross the road and he confirmed that the water was particularly choppy and noisy at roughly location. The spicer's claim they saw the animal. Gould went into the interview skeptical but based on their description and a drawing. Mr spicer made he came out. Short that the spicer's were telling the truth and had in fact seen the loch ness monster.

The Civil Rights Movement Opened the Door to Government Overreach

"People have bought into this narrative that the democratic party is anti-racists. And all this kind of stuff in their history is different. So it's kinda complicated the credit when you obviously when you go to. I'm saying when you get into the sixties civil rights act in that that kind of thing You have to be aware of how many different things are converging. So when you talk about this. I don't think you're saying that the civil rights act itself was the problem. You're saying that it led to do a government overreach yes the quote unquote war on poverty. Which is yes. The explosion of the federal government yes to take over. Everyone's lives particularly in the urban minority communities which it was like look like landing the plane of communism into the ghetto. You go but listen. Let's talk about jews right. Y'all let's talk about james. You're jewish right and my jewish. Not that no. I've been grafted in. I've been adopted into the tribe. I'm greek and german. I'll tell him goi nice boy all right so follow me. There choose will also segregated against it just say no no colors would also say at times no jews but jews have always known to build within their own community. This is a tradition that they've had since Most time okay. So what the jews did was. They said okay. You don't wanna see your school's own schools better. You don't want our banks you don't want to think of banks. We'll build their own banks. You don't wanna business. We're going to create our own business. We're gonna make sure to find each other and now you. We go knocking on their door for help. They don't come looking for us. Could you imagine if the blacks had did the same had focused on building within themselves. We would've doors knocked on but we were too busy focused on being included and so in that we forgot about what was happening at home. Now we have fatherless-ness up to seventy eight percent in growing abortion twenty. I'm twenty three million babies. There's no way during cove it. Everybody's knocking boots and then again. Pray you think that. I run into the abortion clinic. I mean we're killing each other left and right and we're reaping what we saw in our streets right now there's death in our neighborhoods looking cargo.

Hummingbirds Likely Won’t Visit Your Feeders at This Time of Year

"The from the end of june through the first half of july a lot of people up here where emailing me or complaining on facebook about how few hummingbirds were coming to their feeders. That's the time of our summer season when adult female hummingbirds are focused on raising young and searching for high protein insects to feed them. They raise one or two broods each summer each clutch of two eggs and a brand new ness that the female built as early first broods of hummingbirds fledge many mothers lead their offspring to natural food. Both for the chick sake and their own. They this the colorful flowers. We associate with hummingbirds but even more often to the drabber flowers high up in shade trees and other inconspicuous feeding spots hummingbirds burn a lot of carbs in their day to day lives and incubating eggs is even more energy intensive but producing those eggs requires protein and the growing nestlings and fledglings building body. Mass muscle and feathers need even more protein locally native herbaceous flowers shrubs and trees provide both high carb nectar and high-protein insects once adult female start incubating a second clutch of eggs. Or it's too late in the summer to start a second brood. They lose interest in sex. Which is when adult males lose interest in them when no more interested females remain near a male's territory even as the child rearing season continues for the females adult males transition from their mating season to. They're bulking up pre migration season by late august. It's rare to see a hummingbird with a red throat up here.

"ness" Discussed on Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness

"Come. Do you feel do know about all that you do know about that stuff. Yeah sure is it all talk about yes. It's just ancient episodes or so fascinating. You never do it and an hour's time because there's just so much to cover but we do have a little bit more time than we can do that. But i just have this one more question with this. 'cause there's there's sculpture there's like you know kind of art in caves. There's also higher. Which in itself is kind of in art. It's picture but you hated me answer. It's like we can't impart like western understandings of it. So but there's artists and was like was a common artists and then also like royal artists was a different styles and obviously there was. There was different eras. I think you know what i love about. Studying mesoamerican art and art of the americas. In general before european colonization is that we see a totally different history of art and there are these new. You can't use terms like naturalism and realism. And you know they don't. It doesn't fit and what i love about. You know. Some people talk about the invention of abstraction and it's like no. We've got abstracts in the second millennium bc in olmec civilization. What i love about is the artists are clearly making choices. They're not choosing to faithfully represent. Say a jaguar or a puma their stylized. It in a way that's meaningful to them and that's these these these distinct choices that artists were making in. It's not that they didn't know how to natural mystically skull jaguar if that that wasn't meaningful to them so how do how do we get it those other questions. Why are they making these choices. So i'll i'll go back to them. The maya kingdoms again because that's again where we have. The most information and in that context is the only time we see artists signing their work. So we actually have named artists from classic maya monuments and painted throwbacks. So we know we know there are a little bit more than one hundred named sculptors and what's clear. Is that from certain sites. They worked at an telly type structure where there was actually a someone in charge. There was like a head sculptor and you have several other people working on the same monument. So you could. If you see a large standing money you can think of it as there were maybe like four or five different hands and you wonder like with this. The guy that was assigned to do phase this because he was really good at face is or was this. The person that did all the lifts all the hieroglyphs because they just were the scrabble you know artistic license to do the little phases and do the dates so they worked together on these monuments and even with the painted pottery because for example. Drinking cups like classic. Maya canvases were drinking cups. So you look at these beautiful stomachs and you see. That's where the painters are going to town with different supernatural narratives or porches the rulers or just tax. So you think about the and then. They signed their work. And it's about the the the it's not necessarily like just their name and there's a little bit of a title that refers to knowledge. It's about these are the keepers of knowledge and these are the recorders of knowledge in history. So back to your question that were there artists absolutely but did they have again like multiple roles in their communities. Maybe they were artists and healers. Maybe they were artists and stone carvers. They worked on more architectural features. So we don't know if there were sort of like renaissance type artists and patrons but we do know that they were clearly very important to these royal courts and they were valued for their talent and some in some contexts. They were actually able to to claim that he had by signing the work. So i mean. I have learned so much teams. I usually what i would do at this point in the podcast is i would give you like a yogi recess to like tell us like you just be remissed like to not mention over the last hour in ten minutes but i think you accidentally just got yourself booked on like second episode getting curious because there's so much more we have to go through and i think at that time i offer you a yogi recess unless there's something really genius that people should be reading about or doing the foreign comeback to really like get their mesoamerican knowledge wine before you come back. Yeah i would just say that. There are a lot of great popular tax about the history of places like mexico. And the maya kingdom. So you know your your listeners. Should be excited to go out and read that and i think in a post cove reality i would say. Get yourself to mexico. City go to the national museum. Go to con- goto guatemala and cd call and these places because there's a sense of all that's difficult to convey in conversation or just images it's when you're standing on top of one of the pyramids con- you just feel that this is such an important place. And there are such rich stories waiting to be uncovered that that's the. That's the exciting thing about working in archaeology. Right and thinking about what. What more can we learn about the human experience from these different places different people's at different times so there's a lot to talk about james zoya. We're having you back. I need to hear more about like literal archaeology. Like more of like look actually happens to hear all about the art eras in the phases of the mesoamerican art. James on to your time and coming on getting curious you thank you so much. Thank you for having me. Great to me and i look forward to our around to yes.

"ness" Discussed on Getting Curious with Jonathan Van Ness

"Type of person that would do well in the middle of nowhere without wifi without my hair. Straighten are like this would not mean great setup for me so i decided that maybe dogs would be right up my alley and that being said i always joke that I ended up having to move to australia dogs for my phd because there were no dogs in the us which goes to show you that sometimes your opportunities will take you halfway across the world. That's fun okay. So then i two more questions. So how understanding of dog behavior evolved over time. We've talked about that a little bit but is there any like overall overall arching things that like if you haven't checked in with dog behavior conditions and flight what do we know now that maybe we didn't know before yes so actually. This field is super new. So in comparison to a lot of other fields don cognition has only really been around for the last twenty twenty ish years so it kind of feels like we've done a lot but at the same point in time we have so much more to explore so i would say that if you you know you checked in dog. Cognition like two thousand and two thousand ten. We've we've like increase. The number of studies like five times. It's crazy this. This field is booming. And so now we're doing fantastic stuff like fm research. So training dogs to sit still and fm machines to see what areas of their brains light up when we show them certain stimuli. We're doing really cool touch screen things where we train dogs to like. I say boop their snoot just like there on a screen to tell us you know which one is which thing is bigger the other thing So we're doing a lot of stuff that kind of goes beyond what kicked off this field and what kicked off. This field was kind of the that dogs are really good at following. Human given social cues so things like pointing. Your dog will follow your point which seems really easy and really sort of simple. But it's something that even our closest living primate ancestors don't do they don't follow human given pointing and so it was really unique but we found this dogs and so this kind of started. The storm of of what is now dog. Cognition behavior i think the cool thing moving forward is that we're seeing less lab testing so and by lab testing. I don't mean like dogs that are kept in lab. I mean things like where owners bring in their dogs to places like the thinking dog center. So we're seeing actually less of that or at least a divergence from that to actually steady dogs in their own home. Which i think is fantastic. Because now we can reach the dogs that would not be suitable to come here. So like maybe doesn't wanna come visit us in new york city with games at home tonight. Where you yeah. We're an honest. We're in austin texas anymore anyway. Actually do have a few more questions. I'm sorry one of our trainer said that like you know because we were always like my husband. And i talk to each other and it's like really annoying like we're still in love voice like there's a lot of that noise and she was saying like you know if you're speaking to pablo and like a high pitched noise and a high pitched voice. It's like they don't understand english. Obviously so if you're like although you like you're a little baby let me so much. It sounds like you might be a her dog. Ended up signing more like lord never at ease so is that like the whole high pitch voice and like no contact. So i contacted many animals. It can be seen as like a threat display so like with primates and things like that or with wolves. If you make eye contact can be something. That's threatening in dogs not the case. It's weird because we as humans make contact right. Like i look at my screen and i see you and i look at your eyes like. That's where my attention goes and it's actually really cool. We think that this has sort of evolved in dogs as well or at least we as human selectively bred also for this attention to is and so the eye contact is not necessarily a threat display. Sometimes it can actually increase oxytocin so this love hormone In your dog and also in us so don's actually use. I contact like we use. I contact and there was actually some really fascinating research that came out that certain dogs especially newer breeds have these amazing eyebrow muscles to like move. There is to invoke the whole puppy dog eyes phenomenon. The ideas that maybe they did this because they would get more snow humour treatment us because yeah puppy dog. Eyes are super cute right So maybe they're actually like taking advantage of their cute puppy dog eyes but the speech thing is really interesting because i have not heard that before as as an explanation. Certainly true that if you use a we call this mother ease and so. It's that infant directed speech or dog directed speech where you're like doing baby talk. Essentially if you use that it can be really over a rousing in stimulating right so like use it when you need it but actually dogs have a preference for that type of speech over any other type of speech so usually it's a great way to get their attention and it's a great way to talk to them because they pay more attention to it interest. Espn why does pablo fucking hate our pool. Like if i jump into my pool currently swimming he is mad. He doesn't like the water. He's like very like nervous about the water. Like then i feel like he's you know he's running the perimeter. He's doing checks. I feel like he's album. He asked protect me when i jump in. The pool is pablo. He's twenty pounds. He's only knee height. I mean so tools kind of scary for little dog. That's true maybe it's just like a big watery thing and it's like it's like the noises like he doesn't understand the noises like he's like what the fuck or these noises like the splashing he doesn't and it might be just over stimulated. You're probably have a great time. In the pool lounging on your floaty slashing around laughing giggling all this stuff as someone who also has a dog who does not like new things or who doesn't like you know really would love monotone environment where everything was the same all the time yes. This can be quite over stimulating. So maybe he's just rable. I mean. I don't know a doctor thera- i don't know if i have the other questions. I feel like you have so thoroughly. Like quenched like curious with oprah dogs. I feel so much smarter. I'm obsessed with you. And i feel like are your new resident. Cognition behavioral expert. You time anytime. sign me up.

What Separates Peru From the Rest of South America?

"With rick steves with an insider look at how peru stands out from the rest of south america. It's where author and journalist. Marie arana grew up before her bicultural family moved to the us. She writes about her identity in her book. American teacup read. Thanks for joining us. Thank you so much. Rik good to be here. I'm just really excited for you to be my tour guide because is country. I know very little about before we get into this discussion about the people of peru. Just give us a quick one paragraph description of your homeland you know for a country that's the size of roughly the size of california not much bigger. It's an astonishing place because it has just every kind of land form you can imagine. Rick it has the coast it has the desert it has the jungle it has the mountain has the planes. It has all of that and if you fly over peru this is amazing to me you go from one land form to another land form just in the course of a few seconds. It's it's really astonishing place geographically when you compare peru to the other south american countries. How would the people of peru see themselves Compared to the countries that surround them. Well you know we are an andean nation and the andean nations are of course colombia and ecuador and bolivia these are the the spine of the andes of course runs through the whole continent. But we are. We call ourselves and ian people because we are a mix honesty so mix of indigenous and white and black in a very different proportion. Shall we say to. The people of venezuela which are are less india less indigenous more more black and the colombians as well which has a much larger population of blacks than we do improve we do have afro peruvian along the coast who have been there for hundreds and hundreds of years but we are distinguished.

"Yeah well so loch ness actually this is kind of another thing but up to about eighteen thousand years ago if you look at the history of the earth and and fossils. Loch ness was actually covered in ice. So i promise. I'm going somewhere with this because i know eighteen thousand years ago. Sounds like a long time but lochner ness was completely covered in ice and the ice only receded about seventeen eighteen thousand years ago according to fossil records that means that while it was covered in ice. This animal was under the ice right so under the ice with not enough fish to sustain it so it can't get any food from like the ground around it. It's just relying on the fish in the water right so if that couldn't have possibly happened it's too cold. Reptilian thing would not live through that so then people argue well. What if it's warm blooded. There's never been a history of a warm blooded creature like this ever in the history of the fossil record so that's highly unlikely we would've found something. So then the other argument while when the ice receded couldn't have traveled along the water to get there. There's a problem with that too. Because the there's evidence that shows the ice retreated in a certain way that would've meant that. If a large creature was swimming and ended up in the lock it actually would have been swimming against current in too little of water to actually sustain it for any period of time so it actually would have gotten beached but it wouldn't have had enough food to eat and it's swimming upstream so would have died on the journey. It never would have made it. So that's the. This is all the scientific stuff that i thought was like. This is really really really interesting. It's very interesting. Yeah so like when you look at it this way like i. I didn't even think until. I read this article. I didn't even think about the fact that the lock was too cold but it makes perfect sense. Does yes like this. Animal can't survive in this type of climate. It's not gonna happen like the animals that are there are a are the type of animals that can survive in cold weather like that. There's no reptiles found in that. Lock so the odds of happier. Just just none. There's just nothing there that would say it's true right. Yeah i think. I the the science on. It's very compelling. I never even thought of that either. Thought any of that but that just backs up the same thing that were saying. It's this this popularity and then in nineteen thirty four of this creature with two articles in the fake photo and then it just progressed from there in our you know twenty twenty one and we're we have a bunch of different sightings on google maps and kinds of stuff but none of them are. None of them are logical at all. Exacto yeah i mean that. That's kind of the thing and like even Just another little fun thing so another thing they said about loch ness in its ties getting linked back to the see the actual effectively for this type of animal. It's a trickle of water. And it's actually above sea level and the odds of a large sea creature traveling in a body of water that's above sea level to get anywhere because it's so much uphill and it's hard to do are really really low. I mean it's just gonna be a thing right. It's very interesting. Never never once thought about it. Because i knew. I knew that i think somewhere this lock connects to the ocean does not it does. That's what i was just talking about like the river. The river whatever river locked riggan sei..

"They know that there's this history of a monster so and then everybody is obsessed with it because of king kong and like everything going on with that so then they start to create these hoaxes. And and you know build up the story and then tourism starts happening and then they can't let it not be there so it's kinda keeps going right so that was i just wanted to that up because you kind kind of brought up like you know. They want to see it and and they're going to. That has a lot to do with it. So yeah i think i think that it all started with that first article that that i just discussed earlier and that was nineteen thirty three. And then the original one from the eighteen seventies came out in nineteen thirty four. The surgeon photo comes out. It's just like the popularity of the time was this monster and then it just kind of progressed beyond that in a and i feel like we land. We do monsters on this show. We mostly land on this year. I mean oh yeah. Is there sure we never. We rarely land on. Oh yeah there definitely could be something there. Yeah so. I think that they're just. They're just so hard to believe stories. Because the thing is and and we brought this up on previous episodes but like everybody in their mom has a smartphone. Everybody has something on them. That can capture a photo in a very quick like a very quick way. There are pictures of like you know Sea creatures like whales and sharks and stuff breaching and doing all kinds of crazy stuff that no one would have ever seen. You know ten or fifteen years ago because we didn't have the technology in our pockets to capture it but we do now and still none of this stuff seems to be proven and i think that that says a lot but getting back to the science so even if loch ness monster did exist loch ness actually isn't big enough to sustain it..

The famous the surgeons photograph from nineteen thirty four so the surgeons photograph is reportedly the first photo of the loch ness head and neck. You guys have obviously seen this show right. Oh if you're thinking of of a photo of locked. Nasa says the photo. You're thinking this is the photo you're thinking of it is the most. It's the most noted the most famous and it's like you said it's this is what you think about. So it was supposedly taken by. Robert kenneth wilson. Who's a london gynecologist it was published in. I wanted to. I just wanted to hold back so this new gynecologist you guys got that was published in the daily mail on april twenty first thing. Thirty four He actually refused at the time to have his name associated with it which led to it being called the surgeons photograph instead of kenneth wilson's or i'm sorry robert.

"Of the elusive ever exclusive. Lock ness monster. So we're gonna start with some of the in my opinion kinda the givens like so. We got apple maps in google street. View have you guys ever seen some of the things that people claim to see. Oh yeah not even related to loch ness by like some of the things that people see on here. And you're like dude are you serious. That's just like clipping from where they're trying to get a picture and right right. Yeah i There there was like a website ease to be able to go to to get all that stuff and some of them are pretty funny and some of them are like baffling and then some of them are like you said but yeah they're probably look at for sure it is. It is a lot of fun. I am all the time on my talk and stuff. They're like. I cannot believe what's in the atlantic ocean if you zoom in and then it's like nothing that's a goat but so anyway let's let's get into it. So on april nineteenth two thousand fourteen reports state that satellite image on apple maps showed what could have been the loch ness monster just below the surface of lock nece at the locks. Far north image appeared about ninety eight feet long possible explanations were the actual wake of a boat and if you really look at what it looks like it's exactly what looks like i mean You can look at a lot of different ones that it causes the ripples in the water and it's it's pretty clear that that's what it is but if you're just glancing at it you're like oh my gosh that's like a wail or yeah you just. It looks more like a whale than it. Does loch ness. if you're going the animal out. It looks like a boat week. Like i'm looking at it. One hundred absolutely absolutely. I think a lot of people were relating it to the is it the What's the dinosaur. That looks a lot. Why is that lee elliott. Please soar right plus this or how. Easy or please. Oh yeah absolutely.

"Yeah but i feel like that to appoint we touch on it a lot. But if i think that. I'm gonna see bigfoot. Let's say i'm probably gonna see bigfoot. You know a little baby. Bear amana think it's bigfoot so for real so in one thousand nine hundred eighty three she discussed. How loch ness has for generations been credited for being the home of a fearsome looking monster almost exactly a month after the original article in the courier another account was published on the monster. George spicer and his wife had been driving around the loch when they caught a glimpse of something they had never seen. Before claiming that the creature was the closest thing to a dragon or prehistoric creature that they had ever seen moving across the road back towards the lock with some sort of animal in its mouth. Now this one. I couldn't hear. Because i thought it was somewhat interesting because at least from remembering stuff from when i was a kid reading about this i don't remember ever being out of the water or people talking about it being out of the water and i just miss remembering that no i do. Remember the story Ira george spicer looked familiar in than when you were going through it. Like i do remember at least one documentary. I watched and maybe it was more recently than i think but i remember someone being interviewed at some point. That talked about this sighting where it was like out of the water and doing the basically this exact story so i don't know if this is the one that i remember hearing about but it sounds really familiar to me. So of eventually the creature would be named the loch ness monster often described as having large build with a long neck one or more humps protruding from the raw the water while also brandishing the descriptions of sea serpent dragon or monster fish. They're described various different ways but for the most part long knack seems to carry throughout all the different stories. The body portion. I feel like there are a bunch of stories where they feel like it doesn't have a body like it's a giant snake or something but the long neck thing is like kind of notorious with nessie right for sure. Yeah while mckenzie's account is seemingly the first legitimate report of the creature. The first came far earlier. I mentioned earlier in the sixth century in a biography of saint columba. Is that right hope. So if an story recruiter in the river ness which is a totally separate body body of water but close by biting and killing a man before columba intervening intervened and told the creature to go back the creature as if being pulled into water by rope disappeared which the men believed was a miracle. So this is like this is like a i guess like a biblical ish story that this comes from but i put in here the very first one i think legitimate is the eighteen seventies one because there are a lot of different stories from medieval times in like sea serpents. And that kind of stuff. So it's a different body of water..

It's the coolest thing we should put that whole set on the food cast page. It's a great so let's do it. I'm just chewing up a storm here. i have to say i pulled the patty apart and it looks like shredded chicken inside like i really really like this and what i like. Best about it. The texture is spot on to me. It tastes like chicken a lot of times when you do a chicken nugget or a chicken patty begin. It tastes like stuffing it just slinging bread but this tastes like chicken. It does and i feel like the outside it's really crispy and like it tastes like fried chicken it doesn't taste For the stats at tastes super. Decadent it season nicely. What are the stats. So each patty which is a nice size. One hundred and forty calories five grams of fat nine grams of protein. Three smart points excellent. I would totally eat. Same mike.

Approaches To Parenting: The 3 Main Styles In Western Culture

"The three parenting styles are authoritative authoritarian and permissive. There's a fourth neglectful neglectful parents for not listening to a podcast called raising good humans. Usually parenting style does measured on two dimensions sensitivity and demanding nece. What's called demanding ness you can also think of it as boundaries expectations can of what your rules are now for. Parents who are more permissive. They tend to be highly sensitive caregivers. Really sometimes might even consider themselves best friend appearance. The thing is they are very low and demanding nests. It's really easy for them to be sensitive. It's really hard for them to set boundaries. Part of that may be again because they were raised. That way part of it may be because it's uncomfortable for those parents to set boundaries to have demands because it can disregard that your kids sometimes put them into a place of feeling unhappy and we don't like our kids to be unhappy sometimes need to fix that in our minds so if you think you're a permissive parent it means maybe you work a little bit more on setting up clear demands expectations and give yourself a pat on the back for your sensitivity and when it comes to the other side of that. Their parents who are more authoritarian. Those are because i said so parents they tend to have very low sensitivity but really high demanding nests. So they've got the expectations in check. They are very clear with their kids on boundaries. They're super clear and containing and having rules but they lack sensitivity. Now the problem with that is that when you have. Because i said so you may end up with kids who lie to you. Because they know they're gonna get in trouble and they don't wanna get trouble. You may be one of those kids if you think about your own parenting experience and in the middle of that that sort of gold standard and developmental research is what's called authoritative parenting. That's really sensitive and also highly demanding. It's just that your demands are appropriate fair child's age and

What Concentration in Meditation Truly Means and How To Achieve It

"When we talk about concentration in meditation. What do we mean because the image that comes to mind when you hear the word concentration is you know somebody like really following their brow and kind of digging in. What does it mean in a meditation practice. Yes it's somewhat unfortunate that the term concentration in english can have unpleasant connotations too many people. I don't experience unpleasant connotations with it. I think it's a beautiful term to me. It refers to a an undistracted -ness of mine to stillness an ability to apply or attention to something and sustain the interest in it to engage fully deeply intimately so i don't often experience that but i hear that a lot from students and some people prefer not to use the term concentration to translate the pali terms samadi a more literal translation might be a unification of the mind that sense of Unification and some people prefer to refer instead of concentration to stillness or collectedness or steadiness of mind because those terms tend to have less resistance and they actually may be more accurate descriptions but i have been hearing concentration for so long in my practice. I started meditating. When i was still in high school that i never developed resistance to it so it just appeals to me and i continue to use it and it's a common translation but when we're talking about concentration we're not talking about a narrow. Rigid focused forced attention. We're talking about a spacious mind that is undistracted and able to stay steady in. Whatever it's engaged in meditation. It would be engaged with knowing particular meditation subject. Maybe we're focusing on the breath and we're actually able to follow the whole breath breath after breath without wandering off into stories and proliferating thoughts but it also is relevant to being able to sustain our attention on task and follow through so we. Don't you know start. A project or a daily life activity and then kinda quit partway get distracted procrastinate and find that nothing is an effort finished in our lives

And that's what we're gonna be diving into today. So dr bill for welcome to the show. Thank you for having me. It's my pleasure excellent. So what are we. Start by talking about how this all began and go back to. You know what happened. That change the cranial bones the cranial structure our skulls that led to this epidemic of of airway issues breathing issues at all of the health issues. That come with that well How we develop. How would grow and develop is based on how we breathe Aloe and we chew so just looking at how we chew. According to the us department of agriculture today in us sixty three percent of diet is processed and refined foods so without the proper stimulation to the body.

"ness" Discussed on Breaking Beauty Podcast

"Hello jonathan so. I'm a huge fan of queer eye and of yours personally because you're radiating joey all over the place whether it's watching you learn to figure skate on i g or your daily morning coffee boogie you. I really just love all of your content <hes>. And virtually officiating a wedding. That was also very cool during quarantine so cool so we're really honored to have you on breaking beauty. Podcast tell us from your perspective like what is self confidence. What does it look like. And why is it important. Pay attention to. Oh that's a really good question. I think for me. Self confidence is so important because it will competence is like one of the central tenets of self of like being centered self and what that means is in the therapy that i've done so much of is like we wanna be self led like my idea. Being sulfide is like the person that like. Even if i'm late or things of kind of gone awry like i can still be calm. I'm not reactive inaugurated you know. You're centered selfish. Very like calm clear compassionate courageous. It's like really like the best version of yourself and so confidence is part of that in so when you feel confident that's like a really good indicator for me when i feel confidence a really good indicator for me that my centered south. I miss. i'm not in an a people pleasing my personality. I'm not in a irritated part of my personality. I'm not in like a overly work mode part of my personality. I'm like you know self-led fled so accurately talks about that. There's a lot of people in virtual eaters and spiritual thinkers who think who talk about being selfless. So confidence is such a big piece of that. But i think the thing that people miss the most often about confidence and i know that for myself i did too is that you can be competent and you can have a part of you. That feels really confident about something but then also really insecure about something else and can happen at the same time <hes>. There's parts of you that feel confident but then there's other parts that you know are insecure about certain things and so the trick is is wet part of yourself. Can you identify with. Can you hear from that part. That might wanna change something or maybe doesn't like something about yourself and say look i hear you like i get it. I understand why you might feel that way about yourself. This is like you talking to yourself. Maybe we got those ideas from society or like something. That doesn't really feel organic to us. Like while i hear what you're saying i need to get in the back seat because actually centered. South is here. And we're not going to be berating ourselves today about that like expectation of beauty that we know that part of me has for how it's supposed to him kind of china mores in it by with this parliament industrial confidence about you know my heart may essence. What i do for my friends what i do for me. The only or feels like super confident about my face. I have i will say this. Maybe i am maybe really competent. But my face is like one thing. I've never been self conscious about like. I've always thought like a really pretty face like i've cobblers. I like i've always been like work. There's other so. I always looks like something. You feel competent. It doesn't mean physical thing it can be a piece of who you are and then just tried to identify with that. Because i think there's anyone who feels completely competent about everything all the time every single thing. Yeah i read in your bio that from a really young age like forever. You were out and i and i think about back then like what gives you the confidence to express your authentic self. Even from a young age. I say the include ryan episodes of like you know there really was like i could really be in a closet if you had like is in ears like if you were in my presence. You were very much like okay. Like i was fully fluid in nancy. Kerrigan kristi yamaguchi oxana by all geos zodiac sign. I also knew about everything about the electoral college in the presidential election of nineteen ninety-two. I really wanted to talk about i. Thought ross perot is actually. When i understood. I understood like the words. I didn't understand the politics of his leaks. I was i was really engaged in the world around me also just extremely feminine and i wanted to wear tights that i wanted to her off the shoulder. Things and i wanted to like run up to my dad's best friends like push them in runaway. Be like it was just exactly how i am now but if i do is coming out of the closet officially linked answering yes to the question of our i was getting asked if i was gade called gay and like just was asked to from such a young age that i think by the time it was like in sixth grade.

That was a fastball right down the middle as they say now center cut. And a little bit above the knees. And he's late on it. He pulled a couple of liners up the middle and into left center field for base hits in last night's game three two drives this toward deep right field. Movie back on its steward. Looking up his high off the wall. And stays in play his back to Stewart as Posey digs for second. He'll go in there with a slide and now the first base some fire lately, signaling home run. That was a home run without question. And I looked right at the empire's and they were looking at each other. Nobody made a signal Posey ranch Stewart play all related back in. And finally, after all, that Chris goal the first base umpire says it's gone. Holy guacamole BUSTER Posey to the opposite field. The beer cold. They had the right view. Great similar to the right field wall at oracle park in San Francisco, it's it's a higher wall, and that hit right at the top of the wall. Whereas in San Francisco hits the, the green tin roof. That's a home. Run here. It hit just above that wall,.
