"Is, as I said earlier, God's secretary is just published by, in fact, there are mutual publisher Harper Collins. Now, by the way, let me just tell you, may I call you Adam. You close again. But no, no, no. If you prefer mister Nicholson, I'm happy with that. No, I prefer. Okay. Very good. Adam, I'm sure you've been interviewed by many, and I hope you have because this book deserves wide distribution. But I bet that I'm one of the few radio talk show hosts or television commentators that have interviewed you who actually knows biblical Hebrew. So I come to the only one. Okay, normally the only one in the world. Do I call you mister prager? No, I've earned mister as a result of that. I think it's mister from now on. That would be a way, way ahead of me on that. That would be the first time, though, where the interviewer calls the guest by his first name at the interviewer gets called by a survey. What can you teach me, mister Blake? You're a good man. All right, you might not have please, please call me Dennis. In any event, so I come to this with tremendous interest, obviously. And I have I am always on the search. I have about ten different translations of the Bible in English. And I got to tell you, there are some that are somewhat more accurate at times. And I'm going to talk to you about that. But nothing approaches the King James version for the sense of majesty that the original does have.

"Also. Uzman. Oh, I was thinking Israel. Oh, God. Boy, I am a Reese. I'll consider that. You wouldn't have made it any less racist. And I don't think you're a racist at all for the record. Yes. But so we like us we like Kobe Wyatt. The first fight was very close. Goosebump one on the 5th. Kobe thought it was a bad stoppage, but he wouldn't want anyway. It was two two going into the 5th. And that would, you know, it's only a minute left and the fight. Kobe has since beaten Tyron Woodley, usman has since beaten Gilbert burns as well as Masvidal. So they're both really good fighters both at the top of their game, both in their prime. Oh, very much so. The trumps will be there. The trumps will be there. To support. I don't know if Donald Trump's been there. But definitely Donald junior they're going to be asked to support Colby. Well at least I know who to ask for cocaine when I'm in New York. But they're pretty even. That's the other guy. I mean, when it comes to wrestling, they're both all American wrestlers. You know, usman was a D two wrestler, but I think national champion or two demo American, he trained the Olympic team. Colby was a two time all American wrestler for Oregon. Comes the striking, you got to give the power to usman, but the volume to Colby, cardio, they're pretty, I don't think you've ever seen either, I'm tired. Anyone can match Kobe's cardio. And on the ground, I would assume they're both probably black belts on the ground, although we don't see it as much. It's a very even fight. The power you got to go to usman, that's the only thing where alarmingly strikes out where Kobe doesn't really he hurts you on the third or fourth punch, but usman has that one punch right, but you gotta give a good distance. You gotta give conditioning to Colby, right? Yeah, but I don't think so. I mean, it was a second to none. But we never said it was my entire either. So it's a pretty, very evenly matched. It's gonna be it's gonna be a really good fight. I mean, shaping up to be one of those matches of the year. You know, you know, that or somebody's thinker of the year. Exactly. You're exactly right. Let's do that, or they're just gonna like fame to not touch each other for three rounds and then in the fourth finally get going, and I was booing and shit. You know, you're right about that dog. It's either gonna be the greatest war or a total, if I could just like 5, come on, fight you guys. They both hate each other. I mean, I mean, Colby calls him Marty fake newsman because I guess his name was Marty. He changed it to a Camaro and then he calls his trainer Abdullah sleaze, they almost got to a fight at a buffet in Vegas. I mean, they don't, there's no love loss between these guys. Also, Rose Namajunas taking on Zhang Lee, Zhang was the champion from China, rose knocked her out..

"Ain't coming. Now the trumps are gonna be there. It's that Madison Square Garden. The crowd's gonna be pro usman, I believe to be pro usman. Will that fuel or I mean, the copies the guy that wants to present with his last time? And that didn't help Colby win? No, but they're going to be against Colby in this one. Last time it was even. Everyone was funny. I was there. Everybody was booing Colby. Well, I was, but the crowd was doing Colby. And then the lights went down. And then you heard Cole B, hoping all the comedy pants came out of nowhere. Once it was dark, once it was quiet. It was like we didn't really get to see them until January 6th. Yeah, yeah. This is New York. In Vegas, I feel like there's more from people but a lot of people hate Joe Biden right now. Joe Biden's popularity is not very good. I think Joe Biden and you know nobody anything to be excited about. It was my campaign with Trump also though to be honest. I think he was there. He went to a cold Trump rallies, I believe. So anyway, rose nabi yunus versus Zhang walle. Another fight. Who am I picking for this one? I'm going with Zhang and this one. I think rose. Well, I went with zang last time and I feel like I cursed her with my dad. Rose is just surprising. And she, again, much like Bruce Lee Roy. She's one of those fighters that, you know, gets better with every fight, even though I don't see it coming. I have to admit, every time the more well rounded, a better fighter, the row is just gets better and better and better. So I don't know where Zhang may have done that's going to be different this time that rose isn't going to be doing anyway, Henry cejudo. And well, that'll raise that wrestling game. Yeah. And she's really working on a wrestling. And that was the only knock on her. I mean, other than the fact she I mean, I'm with you. I'm going with Shanghai this one because that's who I think is going to win. And it's also who I thought was going to win last time. And I think it's going to win this time. So I don't know. She's such a tough cookie. Chandler versus gauging. Oh, what a fight. I'm so glad I get to see this line. This is good..

A minute after he left, but I'm like, yo, this is actually sounds pretty good. Dude, I one time was going to a gig out of New York and I go to the airport. And I would always fly in and out of Newark. And look, and it said my flight was I booked the flight for 11, but I looked at it and said it left at ten. And I'm like, I'm like, oh my God. How did I and I go, look, it says 11. It says the flight is at 11. And the woman behind that goes, maybe that flight's out in the guardia. You're a Newark. What did you do? I never get there. She's like, you're never gonna get any time. She goes, but don't worry, there's a one o'clock fight out of here. I'll just switch you over to that. So she was very nice and she switched me over to that one o'clock. 'cause I was not just up the royal airport. I was in the wrong state. Yeah, but at least, but at least you knew like you thought it was like that's crazy. Oh, but here's the thing I was being indignant about how the flight was supposed to leave it alone. I'm like, how could you leave that Ted? This says 11. It says right there, leveraging that flat things out of the guard. So fights over the weekend. All of our surprise in the world. You know, like, just when you thought he was out, he drags you back. I picked those. I picked them. I picked them base because I didn't pick them in the last 6 times that he won. And I'm like, man, this dude is, I don't know. Maybe you peek at 43, but he's fighting better than he ever did. And he seems like a real nice guy. I'm really happy for him. He just, I don't know how he did it. I think he hurt young's neck in the first round. 'cause he had him bald up. It was pooling all that neck so hard. And then 'cause he just barely got the Craig on it, and he was like, Jack. Yeah. So I think that because when he was doing it, I was like, I had never even seen that move. I'm like, I don't know what's happening, but it looks really fucking painful. Because he was just in the show. And it's a move that people do jiu-jitsu to like, it doesn't. You don't tap from it, most of the time. You can tap from it. Yeah. This is kind of like a stressful, like I'm gonna be like, you're just trying to rip the head right off the body. Yeah. I think he pulls everything in his neck. Yeah, doing that move because then when he got out of the show, fast. And we didn't even look like it was sunk all the way in. It looked like it was still across the chin, but he turned it to the side. I think that was it for I think his neck's gonna be injured for a minute here. I give Glover.

"nicholson" Discussed on The Best Advice Show
"A guest offers you one piece of advice. Ideally something you can try right now if you want. My name is Z Nicholson. I guess you could say I'm sort of a comedian first improviser or writer, actor, yeah, that's, I guess that's me. I think sometimes the thing that creative people struggle with is finding structure to their creative work, and I'm a big proponent of that. I was a track athlete in college and I realized that I sort of like approach my creative writing and acting almost in a similar way that I did to doing track and field, which was like kind of a little bit every day always and, you know, I know there are many talented people out there that I think. Unfortunately, sort of like lack the again, I just kind of personal structure for lack of a better word to frame it that kind of results in a lot of projects that have finished and I think if you're kind of used to being like, I always show up and I do even like 45 minutes or an hour every day, like it helps you sort of push through that inevitable valley of despair where you're like, this sucks, this will never get done. I hate this thing that I'm working on. Just kind of like having that built in consistency is really key to getting things done. For folks who haven't imposed that kind of structure on themselves yet, like what's a good place to start? Yeah. So I'm a big proponent of taking classes. I love taking classes, even I've been writing professionally for a few years now, but I will still take writing classes if I'm, you know, working on a movie idea that I kind of want to get off the ground, I'll take a movie writing workshop and inevitably that sort of structure of like, okay, I've painted whatever little amount of money to take this online class like that's gonna force me to sort of like put in a few hours and kind of get the project jump started. And I don't know for me at least like, you know, doing high school and college, I think I got used to that. Kind of academic structure. And I think, yeah, a lot of people get to the point in their careers and whatever career they do, whether they're like, I'm some level of expert in this. I don't need to continue to learn about this, but I think you can always learn about it and also forcing yourself to go learn about it is just building in that structure for yourself. So that's a big one that I find that I still do. I think also people get a little bit caught up in I think like space is really important to especially in the pandemic, I was finding that it was challenging to have my room also be the place where I work and eat and watch Netflix and then trying to write in here. Sometimes is really hard. And so what I would do is just take my computer and go sit at a park bench and yeah lo and behold inevitably the second you just shift your energetic kind of like spatial relation like things will start to flow. Big part of that also is like leaving your phone in the car is really good too. So yeah, if I'm kind of trying to get something going, I'll be like, all right, let me just go do 45 minutes or an hour. Leave my phone in the car. If nothing comes, that's fine, but yeah, you'd be surprised how quickly removing those distractions and switching your space will really tend to make things flow. If you want to see Zeke's writing in action, you should watch AP bio or the Eric Andre show or miracle workers. Thanks for listening to the best advice show.

"Podcast with me is dr john. Nicholson is a european attrition. Right john pediatrician in michigan. And john and i have known each other for years He's a member of our physicians on purpose community. And what i am going to talk to. John about is the whole process of recognizing when you're burned out deciding that you need to leave this job and then finding a better place we can put down some deep roots and really enjoy your practice again. So john if you would say hi and just take us back to when we first met and your situation at that point time what that felt like. Yeah i mean. I think i reached my peak when i thought help in twenty fourteen but the previous fourteen years or what led up to that. I had spent thirteen years in an academic pediatric setting where i was a fulltime hospitalised and then also a full time assistant professor doing the residency coordinator the medical student education on call two weeks at a time. Twenty four seven. Oh my kind of live in the work. I guess is the best way they put it. I had a bad problem of always saying yes and so whenever the new committee came up i was the one they put on it. I was well. Hang on a second hang. Instead of this just differentiate. There's a difference between saying yes and not saying no fast. So i think maybe maybe it was the not saying no fast enough right i think eventually i think honestly at the beginning i had drank the kool aid and i was all about being on every possible committee and being present and accounted for for pretty much everything at the hospital and the t. university.

Romancing the stone, the war of the roses, but after that femme fatale role in body heat, she obviously became sexual target every guy in Hollywood made a run at it. She doesn't say who she slept with or she never has over the years she acts like nobody got to her bullshit. I bet every one of them did, but all of the years she's dropped hints at how she was basically open season. In fact, when she did war of the roses with Michael Douglas, he told it that and romancing this film, he told it that Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty all had a competition as to who would get to her first. I know this to be true. Both those guys admitted as much to me. 'cause I used to love talking girls with those guys. But Nicholson told me that he and Kathleen worked together on prince's honor and one night he invited some people in the cast and crew back to his house up on mulholland drive and Jack couldn't do much with Kathleen Turner because prince's honor also starred as girlfriend Angelica Houston and her daughter and it was directed by her father John Houston. So he couldn't do much. But he knew Warren Beatty wanted Kathleen China. So he sent to turn around the house, why don't you call Warren and tell him I don't have a corkscrew. She's like, why? He goes, you'll see how fast he gets here. And you know, caffeine trying to likes to go on interviews and say, well, there was an unspoken assumption that women were property to be claimed, but I can tell you didn't happen. Well, I can tell you she did an object too much to keep Warren or Jack away, okay?

That's the way it's going to go. Period. We need systemic serious systemic reform. They mean business. That's the fucking word again. Systemic. The use of this word is systemic. So no, Netflix and Amazon were the first organizations to say, we're not going to be involved with this group. And that led WarnerMedia to follow suit and before you know it, the awards will not be televised. And that, honestly, it kind of sucks. I do love the awards show and awards season. I've always been fucking gay for these things. Not as much as I used to be Christ. I used to be insane about it. Now I'm like, oh, these idiots, I have a good time making fun of them. But I still enjoy the glamour, even though there's not much glamour left. I still want to see Warren Beatty and Jack Nicholson in the old timers, but no one cares about them anymore. So it kind of sucks for anyone who's a fan of Hollywood award shows because the globes were always the award show where the stars were relaxed and actually got a little buzz. They made crazy speeches. They had fun. You know, Ricky Gervais would come on and rip people's asses. I loved

And then i saw that florette was offering a class and i thought about it for about a week as like. I really wanna do this so i signed up for that and i took that this winter just finished up a couple of weeks ago awesome. Yeah so did you go over to their farm in skagit county knows all online all right because covid probably under the farm. Yeah but awesome. I learned so much it was. It was so great. That's what i needed to do so this year will be. I'm not growing vegetables. I am like for myself. But that's not what i. What veggies were you'll growing all of them Tomatoes beans be radishes. Kale's cucumbers all the summer squashes. Winter squashes pumpkins tried to have a pumpkin patch. Vegetables are so much work and people expect to pay so little for them they deal. I think that's where our current food system has brought people right like they're used to going to safeway and it's super cheap. Yes and these take a lot of work how they do and I certified it last year as able to because it was on the land. That was already certified. Yeah and so that was a plus but it was so expensive. It was over six hundred dollars to become certified in that. Just it doesn't make it worth it to me small. Yeah and there's so many great vegetable farmers in this area in leavenworth and in kashmir that. I already buy from for the fruit. Stand and i was like i don't love doing this. And i can buy their produce. So am nine do it anymore. I don't blame you. I've always wanted to grow veggies honestly to you a little bit of a garden like i should make this bigger and start sawing him like he's Like i said earlier. I'm jealous of your roadside stand. Because i always wanted to. Road san side stands. I was a young kid secretly. I still but but then i look how much work it is. And i hear like your story all the work that you do to make it go and i'm like yeah i could i. Yeah i think that's what makes my stand cool and unique says just me and i'm out there picking and growing the veggies and growing the flowers and the other fruit stands there.

"Yeah we actually just We're going to sell a chunk. A ten acre chunk right over there To our head guy. So he'll have a little chunk of trees and then a lot of the woods up on the hill that that was just to have some some money coming in exactly. Yeah what do you think about some of the stuff. That's happening here in washington state right now more. I mean we've been talking about the pressures already on farming and there's more headed our way. Have you been following some of that stuff. You have thoughts on any of that like the overtime stock that stuff that would would ruin us for sure last year we had to tell our guys which we only have two guys that we keep going all summer and then we bring a crew in for harvest. People were in the crew when you're at the height of harvest. I'll we get like ten to thirteen guys a lot of return nuys and then we'll have some randoms from california just traveling there and working but Y'all we had to last year. We has hours to forty. Said sorry. can't work more forty hours right now. We're letting them we'll see how it goes in. He gets paid more than minimum wage. All the workers do get paid more minimum wage. So well you you've probably because it's hard to get workers right. People were good hard and you have to. You have to up your pay. Because they will the sky down the roads paying me sixteen dollars an hour see of to pay me sixteen dollars an hour. It's a competitive job market And so because of that you have to basically pay as much as you can right as much as you can afford until farms are already doing And then if any hours worked over forty now cost fifty percent more. Yeah it makes it that much harder. That's what i've been hearing from folks and so then it's like okay. Well then you can have your crew work that long because they were already paying as much as we can afford. We can't afford it anymore. So people just work forties. What are the worker saying about that though. And how did you know you said you've already had to do that..

"Exactly. Everyone thinks like big factory farms are bad. But they're putting a small farms out of business is it's so expensive to farm right. Which yeah was. Rules ended up giving the advantage to the big operations because they can just kind of soak it up bright You guys can't soak up a big change like nope just your family. Yeah yeah so it's hard and gonna try to keep going for as long as we can I don't think we can get much bigger. 'cause lot of the small farms around here. They're being either ripped out or bought out by the bigger people. So there's not really opportunity to buy small chunks and expand your close around us less. Maybe we went. Which is the way a small operations right so little piece at a time and try to. Yeah build the base. It's much more profitable to rip out your orchard and sell. The land is residential in this area. Way more that sounds like where. I come from western washington and we're losing farmland like crazy residential development people. Don't think about that as much in eastern washington but it happens here too. Oh yeah we have a piece just down the road down the highway that my brother and his wife just purchased from my parents But we were. My parents were considering ripping it out and selling it because it is worth a lot of money without any trees on it. It's a prime location. But luckily that didn't happen and seems like people have the senseless while you should just shouldn't do that. You know and so a family like yours then ends up in a quandary because you have bills to pay the families multiple now to your parents. You your brother and sister-in-law. I don't know if others are involved in the farm. everybody has to be supported by it. Worse some how And it's like well hey Why don't you just not sell that for residential and keep farming. It's like well. Thanks but then we're just you're dooming us to perpetual poverty. You're no it's like what. What can we do yeah. My my brother works fulltime off the farm he Does body work on cars. So he has a does that year round fulltime and then my sister in law manages the day to day of the orchard on know manages the crew does all the paperwork and my brother will work on all the equipment you know on his weekends after work and then he takes time off for harvest. But that's how they make it work. It's not easy as a development thing is very scary to me. As i see more and more i'd drive by houses and i'm like i remember there used to be a strawberry field. There hayfield 'tatoes doll houses. Now that sad to me that that's happening here too. But i look what your family is facing and i know this is what my family faced too. Well if that land has some value and you know you have costs coming up in your life like with your dad. Dealing with parkinson's athlete. You have to plan ahead. What are you gonna do exactly. And you may end up in a terrible situation where you don't want to but you may have to sell land to be developed And then people would wanna shame you for that too you know..

"Say a hong coming from you. Know china or india yells my time and they they all want to come pick fruit and walked through the orchard and i have to tell them no. Yeah you can't look just let people into the trees right now. That is not allowed. Why is that explained that It's a warehouse rule hard global gap. And if you don't comply then you can get fined and your fruit can be rejected from the warehouse. Food safety food safety. Yeah global gap. That's all about food. safety right. Like gap is good agricultural practices global meaning. The standards in theory are supposed to be applied around the world. The same way and i say in theory because i know there's a lot of concern about you know outside of this country how you know other. Are they really following those rules. But those are the kinds of things. People don't realize hey won't go into the field and it's like no now. That's that's a food safe zone like you stay out of there. Yeah even like you're not supposed to allow dogs in the orchard unless they have a job so all of our dogs work for us. Yeah and yeah. So it's like the the big companies like walmart that want this. And so if bluebird wants to sell their fruit to walmart we have to comply the global gap. And if we don't then our fruit can be rejected and we make no money even if your food is totally the fruit that you rose totally safe. But it's just because the rules that are there as a safeguard weren't perfect or maybe even just the recordkeeping. Because i know the record keeping global gap can be huge to paperwork. Probably have like binders right. Yeah my sister-in-law does all of that She is binders and piles. And she's on top of it and then you have to keep filing records like different times of the year and stuff like that to stay top alert all year long and like.

I don't wanna deal with it. And so i was really worried last year. Kozaru highway was silent for months which was amazing but I thought i had no idea how the season would go. Your dad was probably feeling like what the road was. Like when i was a kid. Nice on one hand but on the other hand you need people coming down the road to buy your fruit. yes and Yeah i was really worried but it was such a busy summer. And i don't know if people were travelling and they didn't care i mean everyone's still came to leavenworth cares And or if they just wanted to buy their food from the source as well i also launched a csa last summer well for the first time in that went really well and so what does it take to launch one of those. That's kind of a commitment because somebody's gonna buy in ahead of time and you're basically promising them a box of food every week or something like that. I knew i could do it.

Yeah years ago when he was still able to get around more than he can now. But still you know. He was the shaky. And you know. And i drove by their place which i own now. But they still live there and he owned it then and he was up in the loader bucket of a tractor working on the roof of the garage. I was about to ream on the brakes and turn around and get you know. Tell them get down from there. And i realized at that moment. Just keep driving. That's what he wants to do. So there is an element of that too. Where i know in my grandpa. he'd rather do that. And take the risk than have somebody tell him to be cooped up in the house and not at least puttering around his farm and his old age. You know. it's so the bank sees i. I was that way for a while. Now it scares me. And i go out and yell at my dad to stop this. It's not easy because you want them to be able to do what they wanna do. But it's hard to see them be safe. You wanna protect your family right. Yeah it's it can be scary totally get that So you run the fruit stand. Explain what it is nicholson's fresh or something like what's the official name of it. Archerd fresh fruit stand corner of highway. Ninety seven and campbell road if you're looking for some fresh fruit so what y'all sell how go with what's the season. Tell me how it works. So i opened in june as soon as i get cherry sometimes memorial weekend. But that's when it's really early season I bring in cherries. Which i get from a farmer down the road. Or i'll get some from quincy a have and quincy to wenatchee And then we'll go into apricots groper cots either so i bring those in and then we get into peaches and we do have some peach trees that were also organic which was a good seller but There is a guy who lives right up campbell road who grows the best peaches and i sell his speeches. And also they're the best and We get a nectarines as well. We don't we have couple of trees but they just for us And then it's apples and pears and we grow all those and i sell all those at the fruit stand. I picked them myself. Yup all album easy work. Especially if you're doing it all by yourself it's rough Yeah wake up early. Try to pick for two three hours before. I have to go up in the fruit stand orleans early Six six ish and then Open the fruit san by ten till five close fruits and go back out and keep picking al do that for about a month so this year i need to hire someone so it doesn't so i can just get it done in a week.

If not will drive snowmobiles up and down the rows to pack it down for him really. Yeah if there's a lot of snow down so you can go out there and prune. The trees get their walkout there with. Yeah so how deep does right where we're sitting. How deep does the snow get here. When it's like a serious snow. I would say we usually would get like ten feet last. Winter was really bad like ten feet deep. Like ten feet of snowfall. Oh totally totally. But what's the deepest will ever get It'll be at least like four foot. Probably packed out here. Yeah so like we would be like under snow right now sitting here like here. It would be like this tall like as tall as a table. Yeah i my favorite thing to do is take my dog out because she's high energy and we just cross country ski up and down the rows and she runs and ice. We love it my favorite thing to do after work because at that time of the year. What else can you do on the farm. Nothing watch it snow. Yeah i love the snow and all that snow is not bad for the trees. Nope they like it. They go dormant and it's fine for them until the blossoms start then. You don't want the freese because that'll kill the crop so do they. I mean is it actually. Good have a good cold winter with lots of snow with these trees. Does that help them produce more. I'm not sure if it helps them. Produce more but they. I wouldn't say it probably matters that much. Warmer climates like towards iran dough. Or they don't get any snow but the trees can.

Like i made a bunch from the cool right but like to kind of loop together. All his moves into cohesive matter and not only that but like kind of build and make the franchise so much better as went along. I think is extremely impressive. And the fact that he's able to make these movies without feeling superhero fatigue is also even more impressive. And that's where. I think marvel in and star wars are kind of in the same lane as far as like you know when it will. When is it too much like when you down content. I think he he knows what he's doing. In that

It was the home of arthur holly compton who was a physicist who was already working on some of this chicago is also seen as centrally located in the country. So that other manhattan project. Scientists around the country could excess it fairly readily also the university of chicago approved of being a manhattan project site and supported it. This work going on people unaware of it in a very busy location in a major city. It seems dangerous it does doesn't it It was a secret project and secrecy was something that was drilled into everyone's minds who worked on the manhattan project there have been some oral histories taking of people who worked on the project. And one was of william. J nicholson who helped. Create the pile as it was called. That was what became the nuclear reactor that developed the first self sustaining nuclear reaction at the university of chicago and he talks about this need for secrecy and how it was drilled into all of staff there there were known agents of the german government in and around the university of chicago and we were told that and that We were not to reveal anything of what you do. Don't take up with strangers If you're having a sandwich someplace or beer or whatever Watch out that people who may engage you in conversation. would be damaging to the war effort and that the they may actually be the enemy so one huge question that comes up about this manhattan project site at the university of chicago in the in. The middle of this metropolitan side is where danger. Was there a danger to the university chicago illinois even the mid west region and the physicists. I spoke to said in essence no the nuclear reactor that the scientists were developing at the chicago at chicago was very low powered in comparison to what we see today at most. It could have powered a two hundred watt lightbulb therefore it was not putting out the kind of radiation that one of our nuclear directors today could could do in there for the harm was not significant. Now there was some danger to the people who were in the room where that nuclear reactor was working one of the dangers. Although the scientists in charge had done innumerable calculations to make sure the danger was very small. There was still a worried that the nuclear reactor could get out of control and they took protection against that and they had what they called the suicide squad two to three men who stood atop the nuclear reactor with the cadman solution. So that in case it did run away and start to melt down. They would pour this over the pile and hopefully it would stop but as one. Scientists told me the suicide squad would not live to tell about it. The first nuclear reaction took place there and it was momentous you know especially when you think about it in terms of what would come later but at the time from what i read in your story to those folks sorta matter of fact it was a big deal but their reaction was a bit anti-climactic. They basically broke out a bottle of chianti and also signed the basket that the bottle of chianti was in and that was pretty much it. The physicists i talked to said that the lead scientists on the reactor enrico fermi was so sure he had done endless calculations he carried his slide rule around with him for those who don't know what a slide rule is. That was your pre computer calculator in the days and he cared around with him. He did endless calculations to make sure he knew what was going to happen with this nuclear reactor and so it went exactly as planned and in essence while it was an enormous event. It changed our lives. It changed science and international relations forever. The scientists there. Just pretty much congratulated. Each other broke out a bottle
Libya's rival forces sign permanent ceasefire at UN-sponsored talks
"Have signed a permanent cease fire the United Nations offices. We have details from Esmie Nicholson, Acting U. N envoy Stephanie Williams says the ceasefire is effective immediately, meaning that foreign fighters are required to leave Libya within three months and forces are required to withdraw from the front lines. Political talks are set to take place in Tunisia in November to find a lasting solution to the conflict that came out of the country's 2011 uprising, which saw the removal of Moammar Gadhafi. Previous attempts to end the war have failed. But signatures have agreed to establish a joint police unit that will help monitor the withdrawal of foreign militia as well as a joint military force that will report to the UN's military commission.
