Jimmy Carter Enters Hospice Care
"David Z Wagner is a friend of mine in Cleveland. And since it's president's day, I want to read you an email. He said to me yesterday. I hear I've met president Carter and spoken with him and continue to be an active contributor to his charity. What needs to search far and wide to find a more compassionate hardworking knowledgeable and kind person, the hands on billing rookie champion, the work with Guinea worm disease, and the active charitable leadership he provided to many causes is very impressive. His recovery from brain cancer years ago is amazing. Most importantly, his personal negotiations in relentless pursuit of a peace treaty between Egypt and Israel stands alone is one of the greatest achievements in diplomacy over the past 50 years. Yes, he was a poor president, surrounded by the inept and the press used Billy as their pinata daily. One of the most rebound, one of the many rebound presidents. We have elected who struggled mightily in office, and then did well in post presidency years. All Americans should pause and pay their respects to the man Jimmy Carter and his achievements. I trust you can help inform your audience in these contentious times as to the man in the humanitarian he is and the good he did for many, many people worldwide, David Wagner. David is a 100% correct. And the honor of interviewing former president Carter on a book tour when he made to LA in 1994 when I was hosting the nightly news and public affairs show there for PBS life and times were trans for a decade and he was gentle he was wonderful. He was terrific in the post presidency years. He did what HW and W have done, which has raised money for a lot of people do a lot of good things for a lot of people spend time with your family. And now you've made some missteps in this book, but not perfect. You've gone partisan, like human rights policy during 77 to 81 when he was president just occasional faceplant, but the man is a legend for helping the homeless, building houses, habitat free humanity. He's a good man. And I salute him and pray for him and for his family as he enters hospice care this president's day.

Guinea worm eradication effort enters ‘most difficult’ phase
"The Carter center says only 13 human cases of Guinea worm disease were reported worldwide last year. In 1986, Guinea worm infected 3.5 million people. There's a lot of discussion about how the last mile of an eradication program is the most difficult. People who drink unclean water can ingest parasites that can grow as long as three feet. The warm incubates for up to a year before painfully emerging, many times through the feet or other sensitive parts of the body. Adam Weiss, with the Carter center, tells the AP they are close to the end of Guinea worm, but not close enough. It is going to be a very long and arduous last mile. Part of the eradication work is training people to filter and drink clean water. Also, those who have had it are telling their stories. They're generally is kind of a fear of how bad it is to get Guinea worms. Weiss says Guinea worm is poised to be the second human disease to be eradicated after smallpox. I'm Ed Donahue

"Was sort of astonished when they heard this. They commissioned this fellow Hubert Dreyfus to write a paper that was so devastating that when it was published, ran decided, we're not going to put our name on it. We're not even going to distribute it. Why? Because they were afraid Hubert Dreyfus says that they would lose that government contracts to continue with this research. In other words, what's the point of continuing the research if the funders of the research discover this project is doomed to fail. And kind of the same thing happened at MIT, where they had a big AI lab and they were trying to build computers that work. That think, and they came to Hubert Dreyfus, who was at his teaching temporarily at MIT for a while, they told him, hey Hubert, you know what, you philosophers have been trying to figure out the human mind for 2000 years, and you've gotten pretty much nowhere. Well, we figured it out. We the scientists have beaten you at your own game, and we're making a human mind, which is to say, we're making a computer that mirrors the human mind. And again, Hubert Dreyfus goes, that's never gonna work. And it's true that in the 70s, of course, the computers were kind of primitive, but the great hope of AI was, listen, as we put more inputs. In other words, not thousands of pieces of information, but hundreds of thousands and millions, maybe even billions, the computer basically becomes a human mind and can think. But again, Dreyfus is point is for heideggerian reasons that will never work. Why? Because we human beings are beings already in the world. We have what can be called a background knowledge of the world that no amount of information fed into a computer can possibly comprehend. I'm talking about Hubert Dreyfus and artificial intelligence. And the point I want to make is as I was listening to Hubert Dreyfus talk about heidegger. I had no idea that the conversation would pivot into this field of artificial intelligence. And what is it that computers can and can not do? Can they build a computer that thinks like a human being? And Dreyfus said no. And his reason for saying no had to do with the philosophy of heidegger and heidegger's idea that we are wrong to think of human beings as subjects in a world that the human beings have to contemplate. You may say separately or from a distance or objectively, a heidegger's point is that human beings are in the world. We come into the world and will already there, and even from a time that like an infant opens its eyes, it has a sort of basic comprehension of where it is. The world is not an utterly strange place. And particularly in areas of life where we have what can be called familiarity. We have an underlying background knowledge of what's going on, and it's not specified simply by what you observe. Think, for example, if you walk into a lecture hall. You walk into a lecture hall, and you see this object that is right up front on the top of a table, and you happen to know it's called a lectern. Now, if you want a student and you want familiar with college, you would be like, what is that? Or imagine someone from, you know, the Amazon rainforest or Papua New Guinea who walks into that room. They'd have no idea what the lectern is.

"That. There were a couple places where we in order to get up into the highlands to meet a tribe or to be welcomed into a tribe. We had to ride as they called it our local air conditioned transportation, which was literally in the back of a pickup truck. So you have to be also slightly uterus in that sense to talk a little more about your itinerary. We're going to have to sample it a bit, I think, just return. But what should we know about this itinerary? You started in Papua New Guinea. Started in Papua New Guinea. I think the big thing to know is these four areas that we talked about history, wildlife, that type of stuff in snorkelling. But it's really the culture. So what we would do is we would pull up to an island on zodiacs and each tribe, or each village would normally have some sort of welcome. The traditional thing they call sing sing, which is basically their oral history told through song and dance. And you probably know that these regions are famous for their head hunting past. Which is really fun in the past, yeah? Yes. Not so far in the past, but past, yes. And it was really kind of interesting. So we got to see, what do I want to say, remnants of some of that? Every time we pull up to an island, there would be some sort of welcome slash what would I say? Kind of felt like you were in a haunted house. They would come running out at you with spears. And so on. Just mimic, yeah, just mimic, that's how it used to be. They were trying to figure out if you were a friend or foe. Anyway, it was interesting. Sometimes funny, but really interesting. And then you would normally get welcomed onto the island by the cheats and the elders. And there would be various flowers and things you were blessed with, I don't know, branches, and so on. And then they would put on a singing performance. And that generally was either groups of women, schoolchildren, groups of men, doing specific performances, about life in the village, didn't always understand them, but they were fascinating. Because of the dress, it's elaborate colorful dress. It was they use all the natural things around them, right? So it was really cool. And then after this things and so on, they would have little guides that would walk you around the village and you could see how they lived, ask questions, as many questions as you wanted. Maybe get a chance to taste their food, go in their homes, et cetera. And that was the typical village visits that we would do. And you would think that would get old after 17 days, but it never got old because every place was so different. It's so different. What kind of things would be different? Some of it was the type of music. One of the things that I thought was really interesting. It didn't change as you got further away from New Guinea and got into different, that's a good question. It changed, yeah, I would say a little bit independent on whichever island we were landing on, how close was that maybe to a bigger island that had some kind of structure on it? So it ranged from there was one island we went to that they actually had an amplifier and a bass player. I'm like, wow. Where did that come from? Because most of these.

How AJ Stole a Few Better Days With His Dying Father
"At the very end of his life, he there was nothing to cure his ill. It was just no medicine to work. I literally stopped doctors from coming in to do these tests and shit. I was like, no, I'm fucking no. No, you're not fucking coming in and putting a lot of needle in his stomach. This is over. He's not your Guinea pig anymore. That's how I got. And I was big and strong back then. No doctor wanted to fuck with me. But at the very end, my father's brother, uncle Larry, who was a doctor. He knew what medicine he needed to maybe have some sort of remission. It was a medicine called cyclosporine, which is like so readily available now. I literally, you know, got it from my vet to take care of my dog's tear ducts a few years ago. It's like no problem. But back in 1984, it was very rare to have that. It wasn't allowed. But that would have been the medicine that helped him. My uncle Larry got a hold of it. From a doctor in Switzerland, and he would send it to me. And I would then take that medicine and inject it into a carvel milkshake that was made by my buddy John's and Eddie's sister at parl. Maybe this is like a fucking a movie. I've been caper. And I take the milkshake to him. And he drink it. And the cyclosporine was in there and remarkably he began to have a remission. And he got to leave the hospital and we went out and we got on the boat and we went to the beach and this great pictures of us but didn't last because there was so much damage done inside.

"Civilization? Well, anthropologists have observed entrepreneurs in Stone Age cultures. And a famous example is malinovsky and he spent several years with the truban islanders off of the coast of New Guinea. And they had never really been contacted before he goes and lives with them. And what he sees and documents are a lot of trading activity that takes place among these Stone Age small tribal groups. But most of them are not entrepreneurial. So he documents 7 types of 7 different types of trading and what's interesting is that 6 of those are highly ritualized that are controlled by taboos and you can do this and you have to do that next and then you hand over your goods and then you say this incantation. And only one of the 7 types of trade, which is called gem Wally, where actually entrepreneurial nature, they involved haggling and it was considered to be very dangerous, rude because it wasn't controlled by taboos. And that it had to be done sort of with strangers in places where you would enter sort of looking to make a deal. And the reason is, is because trading is very dangerous to small little tribal groups because if one person feels advantage of by another person, then it creates a fracture in the small society, the small group, and then that makes both sides of the fracture more vulnerable to all sorts of other dangers. And so trading has been restricted in most of the development of human society. It's only a few people that sort of dare to go outside of society and create this different form of trade, which we now recognize as the best way to trade. But back then it was considered very dangerous. And in the trope in the islands, there was even this famous myth, the myth of the flying canoe, and it talks about an erstwhile chieftain who decides to be entrepreneurial and he invents a way to make his canoe fly so that he could get to the best trading spots before anybody else. He and his crewmates. And ultimately, in this myth, he gets killed by his brother. Who are working with other tribal people that feel that they've been taking advantage of because this guy has his technology advanced technology that's being used to gain advantage, they go off and they kill him. So our entrepreneurs have a certain courageousness in defying these taboos and the like to create situations where they can offer their special skills and get personally compensated for them. That's a very interesting point you make that entrepreneurship can be seen as negative and that's not a negative judgment on those societies because if you operate in extreme scarcity and need to be in a high trust society, trying to upset the status quo could be legitimately dangerous as opposed to the 21st century when we live in a society of extreme abundance, at least in comparison to pre modern societies. I suppose before we get too far into this, it is worthwhile to define our terms. Entrepreneurship, it's a term that everyone hears many use. Sometimes very loosely and they could use it just to say that someone is particularly creative, but they might not have a formal definition in their mind. How do you define entrepreneurship as we are using this term across millennia? Yeah. Well, it was essential to find a definition that spans all times and works in all cultures. So if you look it up in a contemporary dictionary, it's basically somebody who's formed a company. There are many other contemporary vernacular usages of the word entrepreneur for people that are creative or innovators or the like. But the dictionary says sort of somebody that creates a company. But this is a highly biased definition. Companies have only existed for a few hundred years. And the implication is that entrepreneurship is a modern form of formation of enterprises where clearly we can't use that definition to be looking through archeological records to find entrepreneurial behaviors, things that we recognize, but haven't been able to properly define or explain. So part of what I had to do in the book is actually create a definition for entrepreneur that spans all times works in all cultures is unbiased. And that involved looking for three things, which you can identify in archeological records or anthropological records, absolutely precisely. And the three things are, you're looking for person or maybe a very small group, you know, a family group that is self directed in their actions. So in other words, they're doing things for themselves for their own benefit. Nobody's telling them what to do. They're deciding what to do. The second thing is that they are developing and practicing some skill that their neighbors, those around them, those that interacting with think is valuable and they would like to have a part of that or an output of that skill. And then the third thing is that this group or the entrepreneur gains value their own personal value in exchange. But it's this gim Wally exchange. That's both parties are opting in. It's not a prescribed form of exchange. It's an exchange

"Global news update. First Lady Jill Biden says 9 11 is seared into the memories of Americans. You have stories of pride. Of the heroes who stood up to terror, despite the danger. Doctor Biden honored the families of victims on the 21st anniversary of the attacks. Speaking at the flight 93 national memorial in shanksville, Pennsylvania, the First Lady said Americans are all connected to one another. Hijackers are thought to be heading the plane toward the U.S. capitol. The tribute in light returns to Lower Manhattan tonight in honor of the 21st anniversary of the attacks. The annual tribute produces two massive blue beams of light stretching four miles high into the sky, a represent the one standing twin towers. The lights will be visible from sunset to night until dawn tomorrow. At least four people are dead after a magnitude 7.6 earthquake hit Papua New Guinea, the U.S. geological survey reports a quake struck in the eastern highlands near the town of QAnon to earlier today. I'm Tammy trujillo. You're listening to Bloomberg businessweek with Carol massar and Bloomberg quick takes Tim Steinbach from Bloomberg radio. Web searches for round trip flights more than double year over year. Hotel searches? Well, not far behind up 80% in domestic and international. The some of the top spots include San Juan, Honolulu, Houston, and Miami. That's according to our next guest, a priceline CEO Brett Keller. So how much will it cost to go to these places? So we talked about energy in our last segment, and will gas prices have come off their record highs. They are still above normal. Bloomberg's Katie and I asked Brett whether he's seen those high costs starting to impact travel demand. We haven't yet, and there's two, I think, facts we can point to here. One is that hotel demand through the month of July, public data show that that was very healthy. And I think what we're seeing in August, it continues to be healthy. You know, the drive market is a big market in the U.S. and gas prices certainly should play a role in that. I think with gas prices coming down a bit over the last few weeks, that's certainly going to help Labor Day. What hasn't really moved down yet is jet fuel prices. Those are still up 90% over where they were last year. And while flight prices aren't up quite that high. So because we've seen a decline in the price of oil and as a result, we've seen a decline in the price of regular gas that we used to fill up our cars. Do we anticipate that we're also going to see some sort of decline in the price of jet fuel and then in turn airline tickets too? Yeah, that's stepped down a little bit, you know, if you look back four or 5 weeks ago, jet fuel was up over a 100%. So it's come down ten to 15% year in the past few weeks. But it does seem to drag and fall behind its speed of return compared to gas prices that consumers are paying at the pump. So I think we've got a little bit of a weight to go there if even if pump prices continue to drop in the airspace. And so I want to talk about how this compares to what we have seen in 2021, but also pre-pandemic levels sort of the demand that you're seeing for flights and hotels for searches. What does it look like? Well, when you look ahead at fall travel, flight searches are up significantly on the priceline platform versus last year. We're seeing flight searches up over a 100% versus last year for fall travel and we're seeing a hotel versus not quite that much, but up 80%. Now not all of those consumers are ready to pull the trigger yet, right? They're dealing with sticker shock again as they move into fall, but that does indicate a very, very high demand to travel, a demand for travel. And so consumers are very active in the market right now, shopping and looking for value that they can pull the trigger on. You know, we can't predict the future. We don't know what's going to happen with the economic cycles here, but things are, I think, shaping up in a good place for the fall as well. Hey, what about rental cars right now? They're offered on the priceline platform. And I was shocked to find that my brother rented a van to carry his three kids and his whole family a few weeks ago. They did it for ten days, and he was like $3500 bread. Just to rent this van. What is going on when it comes to rental cars? Yeah, rental cars are in a very interesting position right now. Coming out of the start of the pandemic, there was a couple of things putting pressure on the car industry. First of all, they had a number of storms throughout 2019 that depleted quite a bit of their inventory. And as they entered into the pandemic, obviously many of the auto manufacturers had supply chain issues and stopped producing cars. And so that put further pressure on their fleets. And so as they downsized their fleet significantly, that caused prices to go up. It really just skyrocketed. Last year, prices were up almost 75% versus 2019. They've come down a little bit, believe it or not versus last year, but they're still up 65%. So consumers are paying significantly more to rent a car today than a couple of years ago. And then you add high gas prices on that. That really puts a dent in the consumer's wallet. But with that said, they are selling out in a lot of markets. So consumers are still looking for these high prices. Brett, I got to tell you, Katie needs a vacation. She's got plenty of days left. I'm looking at her calendar right here, which we can do at Bloomberg, which is fun. And she has a lot of vacation days left, Katie, that you got

On that day at 9 O three hijackers crashed United Airlines flight one 75 into the south tower of the World Trade Center. Of all the moments of horror that played out on that day, the attack on the south tower may be marked the moment where people were forced to forgo any notion that this was anything other than a terrorist attack. American Airlines flight 11 had already struck the north tower 17 minutes earlier. And until this hit on the south tower at 9 O three, there was the perception or at least the hope that the hit on the north tower had been just an accident. When the second plane hit the south tower, it was clear that this was a terror attack on our country. We paused now for the moment of silence. The floats scheduled plan was from Logan international airport in Boston to Los Angeles international and when it crashed into the south tower, all 65 people aboard and an unknown number in the building's impact zone were killed. Several passengers and crew members aboard made phone calls to family members and relayed information regarding the hijackers and the casualties that were being suffered by passengers and crew.

"I mean, that wouldn't be, right? But just as a stark contrast to that, we don't really think about anything in terms of really potentially dangerous drugs that we're giving our kids yet to many people the thought of initiating a younger person through the intentional use of something like a plant medicine mushroom, et cetera is just completely out of our cultural cultural possibility. Yeah, and to be clear, I would think that 13 to 14 year old getting expelled by the mirror would be child abuse. Well, I mentioned I mentioned that. Because it wasn't just an idea that popped in my head. One of the facilitators that I sat with with that particular medicine is from a tribe in Mexico and explained to me that they do use 5 meo DMT, the buffo toad as an initiation for kids when they turn 13. I don't know if it's the full thing. Which could be very destabilizing. So yeah, I'm with you. I'm not. But that's also within a culture and community care. And they probably like these folks from New Guinea have a whole cultural system that makes that safe and appropriate and hopefully useful. But I remember him telling me that is going, man, I could have really used that probably a 13, or maybe not. Maybe too much. I don't know. Well, that's the other thing, right? We talked about phases of life. And then so we use the mountain arc people as an example, but then that idea of adolescent initiations. Maybe 16, 18, somewhere in there. Marriage, obviously union communion, and then end of life preparation. Those to me, if there was ever sort of a TLDR to my perspective on psychedelics, I think used appropriately and informed and culturally way. They can be powerful, catalyst for healing inspiration and connection, and in general people should be doing more, less often. So schedule those three lifetime heroic doses and initiatory experiences, right?

"Is something wrong with this, but it's then it's being adopted by the sick care model, right? There's the assumption that there's something wrong with you, but what if these tools were actually just being viewed from the perspective of what's right with you? How do we find it? And the interesting thing too, that you alluded to was it's not even that doing a breath work or a sexual practice or a plant medicine or something like that is doing the thing to you. It's triggering something that you're doing, right? There's an empowering piece there. So maybe by the mapping you're describing, we can each get better at knowing the terrain and finding our way there and then finding the modalities to get there that are compatible with our, you know, the confines of what we're willing to do and not do. And of course, which are the most safe and appropriate. You gave this example of the mountain oak people. Is that a pronounced or Akbar people of the western or Guinea? Western New Guinea and how they treat psychedelics and these rights of passage that you kind of give as a broad sort of guidepost or sense of mapping of adolescence, marriage and death. And you illustrated they have this really interesting system wherein the initiates have to really be sort of grandfathered in, right? It's like the whole tribe is just taking mushrooms all the time. There are rites of passage and it's done very intentionally. I thought that was really interesting because the intentionality around substances, as you know, is everything. So what else might you have to say briefly on that piece of just a word of warning for all those that are really excited and just kind of running Willy nilly into the forest naked on some mushrooms? Yeah, I mean, I'm just saying where you're chacos, you know? But I think the mountain occ people is just one really cool example because I think it is fair to say that we are absolutely outside of time history and precedent with unrestricted access to everybody.

"Well, that idea that the structure of your language shapes your thought is deeply attractive. I mean, anybody wants to believe that. There are all these languages. There are all these people. Wouldn't it be neat if the Burmese language channels what it is to be Burmese in the mind? And that's been proposed by some people usually on the basis of one language at a time. Now, of course, a language can express concepts local to its culture, certainly. But if we want to take it further and say that the structure of the language, how it's verbs pattern, what sorts of concepts it splits things up into, whether it has several different words for water instead of one. To say that all of that is correlated with culture, is simply dangerous. And I wrote a book about it called the language hoax because I've noticed that a lot of people who are interested in the subject don't always seem to perceive the possible insult in the whole notion. And so for example, people like to talk about how, say, Russian in Russian, you can't just say blue. They have one word for dark blue, one word for light blue. And one wants to take from that that they therefore are more sensitive to grades of blueness than we are. And if you can look at a Native American language, they tend to have markers for nuances of existence that we wouldn't think of. There'll be a sentence you have to indicate whether the thing you're talking about is round or long or straight. Their language is in New Guinea where you have to specify what time of day something happened, not just whether it happened in the past or the future. It's easy to look at something like that and say, okay, they are more sensitive to those sorts of things. Their language is channeling their thought.

We Have No Long-Term Data on Cross-Hormone Therapy With Dr. Jay Greene
"Let's actually talk about the reality author of this seminal work from the heritage foundation on puberty blockers cross sex hormones and youth suicide. He's a senior research fellow at Jay green Jay. Two observations if I make number one, it is shocking that any new medical procedure doesn't become commonplace or applied in large numbers. Unless there have been years, if not decades of trials of tests of small batch, Guinea pigs, if you will, we have none of that. Am I right in saying we have no long-term data on the consequences of cross hormone therapy or chemical castration on children, do we? We don't. I mean, this use of these drugs is an off label use of drugs that were approved by the FDA for other purposes long time ago. Right. And so there's never been a random assignment experiment that would be necessary for FDA approval for this use of these drugs. So we have no rigorous science to prove that these drugs are in fact safe and effective for this use. And we also have no long-term evidence of any kind because this use of these drugs is incredibly novel. It didn't really exist in the United States before 2000.

Hey, Eric, good to see you. You're so huge. We're doing this new technological technological thing here. We're just testing it out. You don't mind being the giganto Guinea pig. Do you? No, that's just comes with the territory. Exactly. Exactly. Well, listen, most people listen to this program. I know you as votes are done. But today we're just going to talk to Kevin. So Kevin, I have been talking today with Leon fontaine, who's a pastor in Canada talking about the truckers and the situation going on up there. I want to talk to you about what's going on here in the United States, which is not exactly unrelated to what's going on up there. So what's on your mind? Well, so I think that we saw some progress this week. Let me just turn the clock back a couple of days. You had a series of blue state governors all in a kind of a sequence with each other, do something remarkable. So governor Phil Murphy came out the governor of the state in New Jersey. He said that on March 7th, he's lifting the mask mandates for the schools, staff, students, teachers, everyone involved masks off march 7th, to which most parents said, yay, thank you. It's way too long. Why do we have to wait another month? And then later that day. You idiot. Did they take that out of the memo? I think they did. But then later that day, you had the chief of all devil in gubernatorial offices right now. Governor Gavin Newsom himself come out and say, you know what? We're doing so well in California. We're going to take masks off on the 28th of February. And I've often argued that California should be sought off from the continent and pushed into the ocean left to fend for itself. I actually applaud the governor applied California. This is going to be a great thing. Their kids are going to get to get to go to some back to some sort of normalcy for their

"And certainly for families in particular worried about safety. Gap your consultants will be able to give a lot of feedback on what opportunities are the safest. Personally, trying to answer a question, you asked a little while ago about what are some of the personal and professional skills people will gain from a gap year. My biggest one or two biggest ones I guess would say I'd be self reflection and then the second is networking. The ability to discover opportunities by just putting out into the world, what you're interested in and finding out that your neighbor actually spent a year in New Guinea and know somebody there who's working in a mission and you could live with them and do good work, you don't know that until you reach out and make connections and in this age of the Internet and texting and social media becomes easier than ever before. What about the student who's just scared to reach out to a person they had never spoken to or never met? It's a good skill to learn. And you'll have to use it in college, right? So it might be a more low stakes feeling kind of environment to learn it in a gap year. It seems like a lot of this is about access to information. For those of us who didn't have parents who went to college or who had a lot of access to going to huge public schools of 4000 like myself, how do you answer the criticism that gap years are made for more well off students? So I work at a highly funded school and we serve students from homeless students to very well off students. So will the average income would certainly be above average for our students. And we have several students every year, take a gap year. A couple of years ago I did a survey amongst probably the last ten years of students and 90% of them said they paid less than $3000 for their entire year. So even students who maybe have the capacity to pay a little bit more, there are lots of opportunities for relatively inexpensive gap years. $3000 sounds like a lot of money to this person over here. I paid less than $3000 a year for college, so what does that mean for the kid who's really on the margins? I hear you. I work two jobs, my first summer of my gap year several $1000 in order to take the rest of my gap year..

How do people usually when you was the music therapist turns up and aged care facility. I loved turning up to the aged care facilities. There's something so i worked in. Dementia care for about ten knees. There's something about being the music therapist that means residents automatically love you because like going in there to give them their meds or to toilet or get them changed or over it's a very noninvasive and very special experience that music brings to all people so to bay in an environment like a nursing highmore and aged care facility and to be there just solely to contribute to a musical experience and facilitation of of memories or talking connecting meaningful connection. It means that people love you coming is great for the extent of what happens to people with dementia during a music therapy session. What have you witnessed look tapping into what. We just talked about the capacity to sing when we can no longer speak is so prevalent a main. Sometimes we see videos circulating on youtube about someone who can't can't speak and then all of a sudden they're doing a song shed around. The world goes viral. Because we think it's such an amazing miracle but it's it literally happens all the time and there have been certain many people i've worked. We've who can no longer speak or remember their name or their children's names yet. They're member the entire the lyrics to entire songs. It's very powerful. Experience told me about some of the experiences you had working one on one. I love this memory About ten or so years ago. I worked with a gentleman. He was socially isolating as they say so the goal was to try and support him to come out of his room and wanna mingle with the other residents but i really quickly realized that what hated and wanted himself was meaningful. Engaged time with someone else. And so i i stayed. We just stayed in his room and we might listen to one song each time and he used to choose classical music. Listen to one space. And then he would tell me about his life so he was a paramedic student and he got sent to new guinea during the war and he was in a very regional area and they needed a surgeon and so he became the surgeon. He literally had no idea what he was doing. And he he worked there for years and years and he came home for holiday met his future wife and went back to new guinea. And hey showed me once.

"They had borne. They cried out with a loud voice. Oh sovereign lord holy and true. How long before. You will judge in avenge our blood on those who dwell the earth on the earth. They were giving each white robe told arrest rest a little longer until the number of their fellow servants and their brother should be complete who were to be killed as they themselves had been one of the numbers that god has in mind is the number of people who will die for christ and crisis not coming back until that number is complete. Every time christian stands strong in the face of the pressure to give up christ and he dies for it the coming of crisis that much closer. And every time a professing christian faces that pressure and buckles and quits and abandons christ in some sense it pushes off coming of christ last year at a gathering of common slaves. Sitting over in front of the kitchen actually sat with dear brother by the name of all the all. The is from nigeria. There's a lot of persecution. Now in aliyah suffered for christ about four or five months ago always dad in nigeria was killed for the sake of christ and he was added to that number under this altar. And the coming of christ got that much closer. I don't know if any of us will be called the face death for our faith but if that happens. And if it's you remember this you can hasten the coming of the day of christ by suffering for christ finally go for it go for it. Here's what jesus said this gospel of the kingdom of re proclaimed throughout the whole world as testimony to all nations and then the end. We'll come that's exciting to me. it really is. The end will come when the gospel is proclaimed throughout the whole world and for almost two millennia. Christians have been slowly taking the gospel around the world. spend a difficult endeavor. It's expensive not a little blood has been spilt. Many people have dedicated their lives to bringing the gospel to far away. Places and many have dedicated their livelihood to supporting the work of missions. People who've studied these sorts of things say that we're within a generation of everybody on the earth having access to a bible in the word of god. I think that's remarkable. That's not easy. I have a friend who's a missionary or was a missionary in papa new guinea until he took terribly sick and he was bringing the gospel to attract. Who didn't not only the not have a bible. He didn't have a written language. He had to invent an alphabet for them. But he did that. And so we're finding these people and we're bringing them the gospel and we're bringing them the bible and we're doing that. So if you want to hasten the coming of the day of god go commit yourself to gospel ministry to bring the gospel to people who don't have it young people. You got a lot of life. You got a lot of energy. Go for it. Hasten the day older people maybe got less time maybe got less energy but you got more money. Help them out right. Send them let them let them go forward and wherever you go visit jungles of the amazon. The moans of nepal. If you're going to your neighbors house bring the gospel live. The gospel speak the gospel. Share the news of forgiveness in christ glorious news a someday maybe soon this world is coming all apart and crisis going to usher in his kingdom. It's going to be great but you wanna be on the right side of that coming absolutely do the citizens of the kingdom of god are gonna live in glory forever because we're waiting for the new kingdom the new heavens the new earth where righteousness dwells. We're waiting for it. Because god promised it. And because god promises it's going to happen. And i don't know where hasten the day heavenly father send christ lord help us to hasten the day help us to be ready and willing strong enough to suffer. Should you call us to that. Give us courage and strength to go for it to bring the gospel. Lord raise up evangelists pastors teachers missionaries from this congregation to hasten the of the day of the lord we long for the new heavens and the newer lord help us to be patient as we wait. Thank you that you are not willing at any should perish. You are waiting for those to come. And perhaps loyd you have kept the coming of christ at bay that some here this morning would come to christ. Would you draw them by the power of your holy spirit. we pray these things.

I mean just just the way the wind patterns are that latitude and the fact that It's you're you're flying over such an open. You know space of nothing but water and the reason really what what really creates weather is the fact that the the the ground earth itself radiates heat a lot. Different than water does and so. That's why if you're looking at the window flying over water and then you look at an island. You'll see that the cloud pattern very closely resembles the land below.
