He was 83 years old. And interestingly enough, he announced his own death in a pre written message, which was posted yesterday on Facebook, and it said, and this is brilliant. And it's something I need to do as well. I'm jealous. He wrote, if you're reading this message, you'll know I'm gone. I've asked that this note be posted immediately after my passing.

BLM Hires Clinton Aide Who Paid for Steele Dossier to Sort Finances
"With the whole Black Lives Matter story. So there are new filings from Black Lives Matter as they're scrambling to try to not be basically totally disintegrated in real time. And who is the person that is the lawyer who is running Black Lives Matter? Mark Elias. Mark Elias and another longtime ally of Hillary Clinton has taken key roles in the charity amid scrutiny over its leadership and its finances. Elias, who is known for his funding of the British ex spy Christopher Steele's Christopher Steele's discredited anti Trump dossier while he served as the general counsel of Hillary Clinton's campaign, and he also has been the number one guy for redistricting and lawsuits around all of it. He is everywhere, but Elias and his firm is now listed as one of the addresses and states in the short year 2024 9 90 that its books were now in the care of the Elias law group. Additionally, minion Moore, a longtime ally of Bill and Hillary Clinton is now listed on the BLM board of directors in the charity filings. Now the most important part is when did they take over, I mean, they're not stupid. They probably took over recently after they kind of recognized all this quasi illegal activity that is happening allegedly illegal activity that's happening. But Black Lives Matter filed a charitable organization registration earlier this month with the New Mexico attorney general's office, listing addresses for BLM and Arizona Oakland, California, but says BLM other addresses is the Elias law group. So she running
'Smash and Grab,' a Product of Moral Decay
"The smash and grab craze happening across America. It's just another sign of moral decay. What we're seeing happening all across the country and this really started during Floyd palooza and it's continuing. Is hundreds if not thousands of criminals that go into stores, grab whatever they want and then leave. Now, of course, in San Francisco, they will not prosecute theft unless it's over a certain dollar when I think the dollar amounts like $950. But cut 50, here's a small business owner in Democrat run Oakland, California, saying he might just shut down his business because he says, I can't take this many break ins, go to cut 40. I don't know how many more incidents like this. We can take to keep our doors open. One of the owners of renegade running Victor Diaz is contemplating keeping his doors open for business in Oakland after they were most recently shattered late Sunday Night. And cut 5 a security guard was killed over the weekend. You probably didn't hear about this. As these criminals, these thugs in these vigilantes are just going in and taking whatever they want. This is happening all across the country, by the way. And what happens is a group of 30 or 40 criminals show up to a store and they just flood it and they take what they want and no one dares stop them. Play cut 5. So these gangs of smash and grab thieves raising alarms across the nation, a couple of shops getting hit over the holiday weekend in Fresno, California. It's not just California where it's going on. The organized looting now spreading other parts of the country as well. Also, when I mentioned Kevin ishida, he was a Bay Area security guard who was killed over the weekend during one of these smash and grab deals. So who benefits from this type of anarchy? Remember, that's the most important question that you can ask with any of these things. When things start to unravel and they don't make sense, you need to ask yourself the question who benefits? Well, one more piece of sound cut 9, Fox News report on a Home Depot that was looted for crowbars and mallets. Don't wear everybody. They just want the crowbars because they're going to be building swing sets. That's right. Play cut 9. A group of about 15 to 20 suspects stormed a Home Depot store in Lakewood and stole crowbars, mallets, and sledgehammers before jumping in a bunch of getaway vehicles. Some now fear what those sleeves might plan on doing with those tools. These robberies are leaving many holiday shoppers on edge.

Paul Kengor Debunks the Myths Against COVID Natural Immunity
"The medical and scientific establishment that's involved in this coronavirus issue has done a hell of a job covering up natural immunity I've been going to that website constantly There's no information on how many people in this country have natural immunity and now we know today they have not even kept that information Then they put out a report of course the mouthpieces in the American media regurgitated it being the experts that they are Saying that natural immunity is not nearly as useful or as strong as a vaccine despite what the Israelis came up with And my friend professor Ken gore of grove city Paul he looked at this and he is completely debunked in the current issue of the American spectator Professor go right ahead explain Yeah hey Mark it'd be with you Yes so the CDC puts out the study It was about it was like three Fridays ago And it claimed that not only is artificial immunity superior to natural immunity And by the way this goes against I mean I've got at least three dozen studies Let's say the exact opposite right That all say the natural immunity is superior So it says not only is artificial immunity superior but it's 5 times superior which is a stunning stunning number I mean you might expect them to try to say maybe 1.2 times or something like but 5 times right 5 times And you know on its face how unbelievable this is when you consider the fact that as a current study from a research team in Oakland California shows among many others All three of the current major vaccines that are out there Pfizer Moderna and Johnson & Johnson all now are below 50% efficacy after 6 6 months after the

"Community relies on as we seek to replace that with alternatives. It's important for us to not take away from the safety even if it's not where we need it to be that Exists on the ground. Now oh no go ahead. Please please go ahead. Yeah i i. i just want to emphasize. we're investing tremendously in violence prevention and That is critical. We have violence interrupters. Who were starting to hire for. We have Other tools that are expected to be more of the long term sustained support for community members to ensure that we don't they don't end up down a path violence but that has a longer term impact that doesn't affect the response. That's needed today in so win. I'm gonna anchor back to the. We have to do both at the same time. And as we start to see the benefits of the alternative responses and see the benefits of the preventive investments and see those changes. We can draw down. We'll have more confidence to draw down. No one on the reimagining public safety task force Stated that we are going to get where we wanted to go within one year two years or three years but what we created was a roadmap and there are those variety of recommendations that came out that we are implementing. I think more than half the recommendations we either started. Implementing or in the Sort of ernest planning phases for that setting us on the right path and on the direction the the question. I think everyone agrees that we want to get to that more Proactive community anchored Public safety system where police are a very small aspect of that But the question is how fast we get there. And what safety security mechanisms we insurer in place as we are moving down so to your point. I'm seeing here that s- some of that eighteen million eighteen million dollar diversion from the oakland police department is going to increase the department of violence prevention budget by fifty percent and that macro pilot that you talked about earlier about unarmed civilian employees responding to nonviolent nine one one calls also getting a big boost up a some four million dollars to six point two million dollars now. So that's correct. Yeah when you look at all the investments that we're doing into violence prevention alternative responses and others. It's much more than that eighteen million dollars figure and so we are heavily investing in resources that our communities need while at the same time. Making sure that we've got a minimal level of response that's needed to keep community. Say well one thing that's coming loud and clear over the course of this hour. Thanks to you and kisha henderson is that it seems that the very residents of the neighborhoods who are seeking help.

"Any rock and roll. That that's not rock and roll that guy stand on one leg playing a flute. Screw that. They sucked anyway of the good musicians. I mean, it could be wrong so sticks, but they suck that music. That's some attempt at some kind of tricked out rock opera Bs anywhere was I am terrible next year on the edge. I'm looking at Jethro. Tall on Facebook. I'm going to look away. In fact, here, let me let me move my mouse there. Okay, problem solved. I subscribed to a group quite by accident on Facebook. Historic New Orleans when you do that, when you hit it when you look at a certain site, Bam! And immediately grabbed you and throws you into whatever some kind of, uh, sort such that when they sort out their their posts. You're in the mix. So now I'm getting all these really cool. New Orleans neighborhoods by water as a neighborhood that looks outstanding, just beautiful. I don't remember by water and I know quite I know quite a bit about neighborhoods in New Orleans. Been there too many times to count but by water, I can't picture exactly where that is. I don't know if I'm very physically been there. It's just off the quarter. Florida. Let's go to Florida. Uh, Rhonda Santos just signed a bill allowing people to carry guns in church. Why shouldn't you be able to carry a gun in church? Now? You can make the case that if you're in a big church, and they've got a security team, they should have a security team that you just might get in the way because people might not know whether you're one of the bad guys and bad guys start doing things in church. But on the other hand You should be able to defend yourself in any situation if you're like center row center of an auditorium with 2 3000. Sized congregation, although if they still have those anymore after 2020, but Uh, and some maniac gets up and starts shooting well, the prime example was what was at that theater in Paris a back lot, or where was God Baklava Theater. Where two clowns committed at opposite ends of the auditorium. Shut the doors and just open up on the crowd with AK 40 Sevens. Had somebody been sitting Approximate to that with a Glock 26. Something like that could have taken out. At least one of them. They're right next to the guy. But they couldn't do that. For one thing. They can't nobody carries a gun in France. I guess you can't even carry a firearm if you're an off duty police officer and we've seen that evidence where police officers have been slaughtered in the street. We're coming out of their house. I guess they have to sign it out. Signed it back in when they're off their shift. That's absurd. But that's how it works. So In Florida, where they're saying that one vestige one hint of French stupidity or otherwise. Chicago stupidity Florida Governor Rand A Santa signed legislation Tuesday. Allowing worshippers with concealed permits to carry firearms on their person for church, synagogue or mosque defense. This is a good idea. Um House Bill 2 59, Florida ahead of the curve on so many things. Applies to concealed Carry permit holders took effect immediately upon being signed. I love when they do that. You know what always gets me is the bill was signed it or it doesn't go in effect for four months. They did that with the right to work was so stupid. Yeah. Uh, ABC noted that HB 2 59 also covers churches and other places of worship that have schools so now they have been prohibition on Kerry. At such churches and places of worship. Because of school grounds. This is good. You know all this engine's hinges on one election. This is legislation, though this isn't some type of executive orders, so they'd be hard for us to get rid of this of another psychotic comes in and takes over for run scientist. Ah! Now there hasn't been dirty Harrier John McClane er Rambo. Let's come to the defense of anyone in any of these mass shootings. That's because they haven't been armed. Some psychotic Democrat Senator Gary Farmer opposed the bill, uh, was built on a fallacy, but Well, that think of that monkey logic. He needs to be proven to him that this is there's a reason to do this other than hey, we have a second Amendment right to carry a firearm. Protect yourself matter where you are, no matter what or there's something happens or doesn't happen. Never right to do that. We're going to allow concealed permit holders. It's that wild, Wild west. We've given one of the safest subgroups in our society. The ability to carry Yeah. So what? There's there's the monkey logic that needs to be taken down. Good luck doing that in 2021. We're trying hard. We're working on it. But man The Straight of progressives are running the show right now. It's not like they're saying the inmates are running the asylum. No, no, no. If the inmates running the asylum would be better off Some dictatorial fascists are running the asylum right now, speaking of, uh, being armed And being able to legally carry a firearm. Oakland, California. Uh, maybe get into this after the top of the hour, but armed men attempt to rob a news crew What while they're interviewing the Oakland director of Violence Prevention It's not funny that people are being threatened with firearms to think about that. They're interviewing a guy who's in charge of violence prevention. And while they're doing it, somebody comes up with a firearm was there shaking them down? I don't know if they were armed and fought back or what? But what? Wow, I posted on Facebook. It's imperfect. Simply a perfect the irony of it all. I bet you that's news crew. I'm just betting But I'll bet the news crew was a bunch of liberal psychotic maniacs. Most news crews are mm Yeah, we're.
What We Learned From the Epic Games v. Apple Trial
"Trial. What is it? Why does it matter? What's the latest? Yeah, the the long and short of it is that epic is this company that makes the Game four tonight? You might have heard of it.

Currently, for example, you can't get a nap for your iPhone unless you go through Apple's app store there No other APP stores out there. Apple doesn't allow them. Also don't allow you to buy digital goods like a new look for your character unless you go through Apple's payment processing, which takes a 30% cup from the from the company, so it's something that epic has one not enjoyed, and they have decided to sue. They say that its monopolistic behavior And over the last three weeks, we with into a bunch of testimony in an Oakland, California court, where they debated this, and it's actually really interesting. It's like one of the first times we've seen Ah major antitrust trial around Tech in decades. So if epic doesn't like

The Epic Court Battle That Could Upend Apple's Future
"Talked on the show before about developer fees. Those are the commission's usually around thirty percent. That app store owners take from purchases made through their marketplaces. Some developers have pushed back against these fees. Saying there too high while store owners like apple and google have argued that the fees are necessary to keep transactions secure. This debate is the subject of a court battle between apple and the creator of fortnight epic games which kicks off today. The outcome of the trial will have ramifications for apple. And the rest of the tech giant's so for more on this. I'm joined by our apple reporter tim higgins. Hey tim thanks for being here. Thank you all right before we get started we should note that the wall street journal's publisher dow jones has a commercial agreement to supply news apple services. Okay so tim can. You remind us how we got to the trial that starts today. There's actually quite a dramatic backstory. Here right now. This is a clash of the titans. If you will it goes back to last august and the creator of fortnight epic games surprised a lot of people with an update to the fort game on the apple app store that aim to create a payment system. That would get around apple's payment system. They'll allow users to go into an epic games created pay system and that was a huge violation of apple's rules and it resulted in fortnight being booted from the app store and what followed was a pretty big legal battle that we now are seeing take place in a courtroom in oakland california and so as the court case. Kicks off today like you said in oakland. What's really the central question of this case. What is this all about. There's a few things going on here. Epic feels that apple is using. Its power anti competitive way specifically. They argue that apple has this delivery device or distribution device for apps on iphones and that it's one hundred percent controlled by them and that that is a monopoly in a bad sense and that they're misusing that power so what this case comes down to a large way is the definition of what a market is in the digital

American soccer history's website sash for sure and that website is us soccer history dot org us soccer history dot org and it's Derek recent posting.

Probably percolating within Certainly the international soccer league where he got bit by the professional bug to an administrator in the sports you heard in that conversation. The story of bill cox in those international games Largely in the new york and northeast areas in the early sixties. That bhagat or begat at least one thread of soccer in the late sixties but also the There's a there's a couple of pieces of hardware sort of floating out there that He's looking sort of bring back one of which was the the The champions cup that the teams at the end of each season in the international soccer league would win and then they would be able to take back home with them to their various ports of call. And derek has sort of on a mission to bring that championship trophy back from. I think he said was in warsaw. Poland because that was the team that last won the isl championship back at sixty. Five was team from poland. So so i think. There's lots of interesting stories left to be had there from derek about the isl championship trophy etc. And we have already made a bargain with him that as soon as he puts it for that proverbial pen to paper. We will have him back to discuss that because the isl itself is fascinating story and we really wanted to get deeper into that.

They should start teams again in. La san diego and so on But as may don't later legions. Light that i might her plan. I wanna get to that in a second but before we leave nineteen sixty again. This is the first year of the the official year of the north american soccer league in nineteen sixty nine. There were only barely five teams right. So this is this is a very you know very interesting year in the history of of of that league at the time But there's an interesting sort of dynamic that i didn't really know about until i dug into the story and that is and maybe you can get into this a little bit. The oakland clippers and sixty eight had the second best points total and by extension record in the entire league but did not make the playoffs. They lost they were they were. They were one point behind the san diego toro's in their division. They just had the they had the unluck. I guess of being in the same division and not making the playoffs despite being one of the best teams in the league. Well huge huge your disappointments and well referee call offside improperly or not or so-called winning goal against san diego and so there was a game near the end of the season with san diego that determined winter interesting. Yes and We had our winning goal. called back. For offside and we've been recapture after that the sin and And here go call. Sign a and again. I i if to our listeners. If you if you look up the actual standings in nineteen sixty eight. You'll notice that the san diego toro's got one hundred eighty six points and this is sort of using this. I guess now known as the newman system is six points for a win. Three points for a tie and get any points for a loss and you got one point for each goal scored up to three each game right into the nsl adopted in years afterwards but again you look at the statistics and the clippers had the second best point total. That is one point below the toro's which had the best in the league and the second best point total in the league. The clippers did night in that year was better than every single other playoff team in the league and they still didn't make it and so that's that's gotta be maddening to a team. That's coming off a championship season. When i get all the year prior the double if you will not having a chance to repeat and deservedly probably soda and they should have had the opportunity in summary ship perform the that must've been beyond maddening was beyond so i mean i i okay. So how does your owners i mean. So where do they get this. We're in it for the long haul. That because i i would imagine if i were owning this franchise and seeing now a second league that i'm part of no longer viable all of a sudden and and having the you know having the the the added you know kick in the butt of not making the playoffs when arguably should have Why were they interested in sticking around with this thing given all those things e money losing. I'm sure to. I truly believe mr ilias ron. Neil were That they love the game. And they they love the work that we had done in this franchise again and they had the money to keep the team together even more d- salaries and all that and we're willing to wait it out and and see if the would get organized again on a national basis within a reasonable time and it may well have been that if our bencher with the international game which came later if those games had been more successful in terms of Income that they were stuck it out but there were a two factors number one. The united states soccer federation denying us permission to continue that program and number two all of a all the bureaucracy involved. They ended up saying this isn't any fun anymore or out and So that's sort of how it all ended all right so so let's talk about that. Nineteen sixty nine season and against for those you know. Soccer aficionados The nsl truncated dramatically to just five franchises. That season that next season. And without the oakland clippers right which. I'm sure Phil wisdom and and the league would have loved to have had is the sixth franchise but You recognize that. What oakland been. The furthest distanced team in that That beck group of six Travel would have been probably very cost prohibitive and you were not sort of not certain of the. Nfl was perhaps going to survive. So you saw international games yet again as the way to kind of at least hold on until perhaps they got their act together right so i also some more irony though because the nfl maybe to its credit right. Not only so. They split their their their league that year into a not only a an internal five team tournament amongst their own players but then also had an international component where they imported five teams from just like the isocell and just like the usa full teams from abroad again and to me. That's also ironic. Because that's what you guys are doing on your own. Yes.

Just didn't work and in the long run we did not congrats not because it wasn't a good play on the field but the justice at the bay area sports people were ready yet in my opinion. Or what we're doing now. Okay so let me ask you this though ready for soccer ready for the new venues in oakland. Because we've we've talked about the seals on this show a number of times and and you know it was a bit of a struggle. I think certainly for them. Although i was also new to the to the bay area region to write this is in the days probably before bart and easy sort of access besides cars. How much of. It was the new stadium. The new location in oakland her. Say how much of it was soccer. In the sports firmament and frankly important question which Nobody seems to know the answer to. But i'd love to hear it. How much how about the competition from the united soccer association's golden gate gales who we're playing keys. Are that year right now. Well yes yes. i'm sure they. They drag dragged away. Some people would across the bay. She's they are games but Frankly i personally much attentions of even know kinda crowds rousing governor. I'm sure they weren't any better than ours. Interesting votes but was it the soccer though. Was it the bay area and oakland was was that were those any factors in this. Well i'd say the game was still quote due to to our american born kids are who are were viewed and their football and baseball and and I gave an example an example Which is glaring that name familiar to absolutely longtime founder and publisher of soccer america arguably the the the you know the the dialogue if you will of american soccer for marketing was to make this game a pudding coming to regain ridiculously inexpensive.

How and what happens there is that can clay burleigh became totally hooked on soccer. I consider one of our legacies. The fact that clay burling and hooked on soccer and became the free evidence Purveyor of soccer knowledge in the united states where his obligations and the yeah so but to get back to your original question about marketing. Marketing was our most difficult challenge. Interesting so gimme a sense then of the play because not only did i mean this is back in the day. Not only did the clippers wound up winning the nps al title. I i guess. There wasn't even regular season sort of supporter. Shield like there is today but winning the championship and then the This second Second competition the commissioner's cup. I guess they won the double right which is probably the the ultimate expression of how you essentially dominated this league in. Its very first year. Yeah i would agree with that. And i think one of the one of the things that real- realized is that now that you've probably read and some of these things that we're we brought the first national championship and as sport to the bay area which all these snooty sports people today you know. Never even heard of his bothers me. Yes so how. How did these. The sports intelligentsia then respond. I know the the nps final was a two game affair between the baltimore bays in the clippers in the first game actually lost to the bays. One nothing in baltimore. In september sixty seven and a week later in front of about nine thousand at the at the coliseum winning four to one in aggregate of winning the championship. I'm sure your memory was a fonder and and more Warm and amazing perhaps than the nine thousand fans rattling around fifty. Some thousand seat stadium right but How was it received. Was it kind of like did anybody that. The sports writers kind of pay attention was there any sort of a media Celebration so to speak where they're more fans out. There was a kind of kind of a quiet affair. Now we got we got a lot of headlines One of the preliminary games. I'm looking at it. Holds hopefully clippers or page right now in huge headline a.

California Principal Brings Food To Students Cut Off From Meals
"California to meet Juan Vaca. He is the principal at Global Family Elementary School where all of the 453 students receive free or reduced lunch. We have like 98%. You know that next and we have students. They're newcomers are English language learners. They're newcomers coming from other countries. With very minimal language, very minimal educational experience, no schooling, So we try to find ways to actually make sure that we're also holding them in a way that they're actually have the support that they need to be able to be successful. His school has always had students who needed help getting food or enough food, but things got worse when the pandemic hit. Families had to figure out how we're going to supplement this food that used that we usedto get at the school. It's it's kinda is difficult, exactly. Ah, fathom to think that we take something simple things like like lunch and meals and breakfast for granted, because it's it's expected. It's there. And once we've removed and you give him something else, different avenues, Actually, Tina lt's thinks it's kind of difficult and target our job. I think to find ways to toe mend that and connect families to these three services. This summer, Vaca worked at a food distribution center at another school in the area. But families from his school couldn't make it usually because they lacked transportation or were quarantined. So he got creative and what I would do is I would go check in the morning at that school and make sure that everything was going well and what I would do that would bring food back because I knew that there's families would be Needing this food and I would have. How's it at my my sights and parents know that they could come and pick it up or I would drop off on my way back to my school? Still, that wasn't enough. A vodka and a staff of global family got even more hands on teachers would buy groceries for struggling families and do wellness checks. Eventually, vodka arranged a food drive at his school twice a month. He says. More than 100. Families show up each time. They're very thankful. They always think us and they always wanna wants the next one. And because fellas leave with a lot of bags like it's not just here's two apples Here's to. No, it's There's a lot of food and I think they're very grateful. I think it's sometimes isn't words Don't don't express what they're feeling. I just 1000 face that. They're thank you says a million words and I just feel like it's stick followings right Vodka says the drives are a chance to check in with students and their families. That's where he learns how they're adapting to distance learning amid the pandemic. It's tough because you have these students were having to take these rolls right of the roles of making sure that they can't Mom and dad has to be quarantined. And now you have a kind of to fend for yourself. So it's it's one of those situationally. They're very grateful, very grateful. We provide them but it it's not consistent. Right. Well, it's not. We're not there every single day without we're not sure we're not there with them. 24 hours a day and we could provide one need, but we could try toe help him overcome one obstacle, But there's still so many more. Despite the challenges, vodka remains optimistic. The food drives continue as do the check ins. He says. He learned a lot in the early days of the pandemic and has adapted to this new normal. We needed. Just continue working and making the drive striving, Tio what we're doing in regards clothing, the Snowden security gaps and making sure they're At least some of their basic needs are met to the capacity that we could provide. So that's one less thing. They have to worry about that Swan vodka principal at Global Family Elementary School in Oakland, California.

But this decision does not legalize the sale or distribution of mushrooms. We'll talk to Dr Charles grow about psychedelics and mental health in a moment.

Well, we were hopeful, but you never know how still so we are athletes real that got unanimous vote will help us understand this difference between Oakland and Denver. I said the legislation is similar, but what distinguishes them from each other? A little further Denver went Silla side than only, and we added three other substances I-, Awasa Boga and cacti. Wanna give people freedom of choice of the choose their medicine will tell me more about what the community of Oakland is going to gain from this, why this push to criminalise. Why now, people are suffering, our communities are experiencing trauma, particularly due to the war on drugs, and racism and all kinds of things happening. And so there are a number of conditions that people are suffering from depression, anxiety, PTSD, and we just feel like people need help need help now and how they get that help who does target and about how many people year or arrested and convicted for for suicide in Houston, Oakland. Aren't high for that. That's that has more to do with us the stuff. So, you know, black, and Brown, people have been targeted and arrested in huge numbers for years, because they use, you know, mostly marijuana or other types of substances, but typically is a light person substance. And so, and it's very underground, and so they're not getting arrested, but we want to bring this above Brown. We want to come out of the shadows. We want people who are experience using the tools. Facilitators dies come around and Bill before community and, and help them use these tools in safely sauce away and all the way we can do that. Criminalizes have open conversations and be a little so silicate healthy and safe practices. Yeah. A lot of what you do is train educate people, and using these and just to be clear that the sale, and distribution of these substances is still a legal. So. How do people get their hands on? Scylla sivan. I mean is the plan to teach people to, to grow their own mushrooms? Right. We're not advocating selling or distributing nowhere part of our resolution. What we are advocating educating people building to media around this, so that we can share medicines often grow your own there things that you can role yourself. And so now he, he should allowed to leave in your own backyard. He wants also shared a most your friends and is an issue that there's a stigma around these a drug like magic mushrooms in the communities that you're targeting. There is a big part of that is changing the language around, you know how the even talk about the stuff that a lot of people are still saying drugs, and we absolutely you're trying to shift that paradigm. We want you know they're not drugs there. They don't they're not addictive. They're feeling. And in fact, in our resolution, we use the word of the Jains because that's really what are the is the divine within. And it's really about your, your mental emotional, and spiritual well-being.

It's beneficial uses what do you think about this? Do you have any concerns of two minds here on the one hand our research, and those of our colleagues and other medical situtions around the country? In Europe have indicated a favorable response rate. When suicide is utilizing a highly controlled clinical treatment research setting I including individuals who did not respond well to conventional treatments. So there's a great upside, great potential when it comes to well controlled clinical research. However, when the drug is out in the community all bets are off. Some individuals will have very positive experiences, perhaps even life changing transformative experiences. Some. People will have simply take it or leave it kind of experience and some be a minority. But some those, particularly with underlying psychiatric vulnerability maybe in for very, very rough time. Right. And you study the use of Silla side on patients with anxiety and mood disorders. So help me understand what happens in the brain. When you ingest this substance.

"Young boy in Oakland, California. Asphalt baseball field. Dare dream not even there. They would one day be standing up here. Being inducted into the hall of fame. What is happening? Thank you all for coming. So Frank Robinson gone at the age of eighty three after a long battle with bone cancer. I believe it was but definitely won't be forgotten. And again, I saw the word tough over and over on Thursday as as various members of the baseball community were weighing in and thanking him for for what he meant to them personally as well as to the game and kind of the idea that popped into my head is that he had no choice, but to be tough. Because of the fact that he was going where no other manager and he was still a player at the time of player manager had gone before. And even though he wasn't Jackie Robinson. And he says I didn't face the same type of resistance that Robinson did. But he also tells the story of him and his family in Baltimore is struggling to find a place to live because there were people there who didn't want African American neighbors didn't want them living in their buildings. And so his path wasn't the save is Jackie Robinson. But it's sure as heck wasn't easy. And he broke a different barrier, and he had no choice, but to be tough or he wouldn't have survived and character and leadership that toughness. That all kept him going. But also. Kevin from losing his smile and his joy and his passion for the game that he loved and so will miss Frank Robinson. And I appreciate the stories and the tweets that you sent some of you saw them play called up with some really cool memories about.

I she's female African Americans smart. She's pretty well. Spoken. Yeah. She's she's a threat. That's that's what they well. They need somebody who's going to be a threat, and she's she's the whole package. Yes. That's her. So I think you're right. They're really concerned that this the former CEO of Starbucks Schultz guy. He's going to throw his hat in the ring. He's talking about it. He's fairly he's traveling the country right now to see if you can drum up support, but the Democrats are gonna smush him because they're saying if he runs he's gonna steal from the democratic base.
