" On this week's AP religion roundup, Paris's iconic cathedral prepares to reopen, and ancient runes revealed a Norse God Odin's deep history. French officials say the reconstruction of Notre-Dame cathedral in Paris is going fast enough to allow its reopening to visitors and faithful at the end of 2024. That's less than 6 years after a fire ravaged its roof. France's culture minister rima Abdul Malik says that they still have work to do after the visitors return. Reopening to the public in December 2024, it doesn't mean that all the renovation will be over. There will still be some renovation works going on in 2020 5, but the cathedral will be open to the public. Authorities have made the choice to rebuild the 12th century masterpiece of gothic architecture, the way it was before. That includes recreating a more recent 315 foot spire. The army general in charge of the colossal reconstruction said the iconic spire will gradually start reappearing above the monument this year. He also says that the reopening means that Notre-Dame's archbishop will restart services at the cathedral. Every day, about a thousand workers endeavored to restore everything from the stonework to the stained glass to bring back Notre-Dame. Scientists have identified the oldest known reference to the Norse God Odin on a gold disk unearthed in western Denmark in 2020, a pendant with the inscription reading he is Odin's man, was in one of the largest troves of gold treasure ever found in Denmark. It's one of the best executed runen descriptions led I have ever seen. Lisbeth Emer is a runologist with the national museum in Copenhagen. She says the runes are evidence that Odin was worshiped as early as the 5th century. At least 150 years earlier than previously thought. We have had some indications that he might have been in the conscience of people earlier, but this is the first solid evidence. Experts think the cash was buried 15th centuries ago to either hide it from enemies, or as a tribute to appease the gods. I'm Walter ratliff

"No, no, first one. It gets so weird. 2018. 2018. Kratos was so much the center. Yeah. And it wasn't that he wasn't took it as a sinner in ragnarok. It's just other people got just as much screen time as right. Yeah. What do you think? 2018 versus ragnarok. What's your hot take? 18th better. Me too. And I honestly feel like there's just so much bad pacing in that game. And ragnarok. For some reason, people and there's just like towards the end that something big happened and then just, they never dressed it. I know. I know. It just frustrates me because they left so many holes in the story. And then when I'm reading these reviews, it's just like, where is any of the criticism I get it? I get it. Oh, I had some. I don't know if you saw mine. Mine was, I talked about the poor pacing through a good part of the story discussion in mind because I was just like, go ahead. If you get technical, they kind of sold you the same two hours in both games. Yeah. Like, you fight the stranger. I feel like the stranger was about to fight than Thor at the beginning of dragon wrong. Absolutely. Absolutely, yeah. Maybe it's 'cause it caught me off guard. Like I kind of expected it in ragnarok. But when the stranger first showed up in the first one, he knocked on the door being all loud and obnoxious. I didn't expect that, but I kind of expected though at that point. Right, and when the stranger shows up, he's obnoxious in a way that makes you realize he's got confidence for some reason. Like you're like, dude, this guy, I mean, doesn't look like he's got it. And in a way, Odin repeated that all over again, but then it's almost like the stranger was mixed into two people at the starting ragnarok. The stranger became Thor and Odin. Thor being the physical part, Odin being the verbal part. And then it just repeated itself with a battle, and you were like, oh, interesting.

"I want to talk about myths. They've always fascinated me. The ravens, their prevalence in Viking mythology makes a great deal of sense. First, ravens have a tendency to breed in the autumn and fall months, would explain why in battles what happened during that time frame would also see a large number of ravens compared to normal around battle locations. This then combined with the fact that the Vikings loved winter campaigns throughout all of their mentions and other cultures they faced off against multiple foes and they were known for their love of fall and winter campaigns. That's touted. This also colors the dealings that they had with kings. They faced against, sometimes they'd be a king that was nearby. They would make them pay Vikings dangle basically money to the Danes so they wouldn't fight. The Vikings would leave and then come right back during a winter campaign when most other armies had a number of difficulties doing that. So you can see why this myth that Odin's Raven seemed to be prevalent during Viking encounters and larger battles, it actually makes sense that basic construct of a myth is right there for you to see. I really like this spot. Ubisoft has had a great deal of success in world building. One part is always the passage of time. The idea is that these places at some point passed from one being to another one group to another, just aged over time, taken over by one group, and then another then left to its own devices with those brambles and already around them, and those shields are still proudly patched onto it from the previous owner. And then also mixing in the lit torch, which shows you that somebody is currently also inhabiting that area as well. Within the same notes and journals and travel entries from a variety of sources, they indicated that the Vikings had very particular weakness in a particular strength. Of course, the ability to war in the wildest of environments and the wettest and coldest. However, their weakness was heat and some groups did use that against them. It also fits in the overall connection about their armor not being leather, as leather doesn't breathe at all versus the chain and linen that's more established as an explanation now in his mimicked more here than I would say a lot of older games might. We're going to take this guy out. Boop. Wow, wait, what? Okay, I missed that guy. I'm glad his friend wasn't looking. I'm just going to sneak up here. Yeah, see, that's one of the things you notice when I did the reverse strike back to his neck. It catches them, which again is a part of the idea of this axe and the ability to normally slice into somebody but catch them and pull them off guard, which you certainly see many times here. But it is a quicker animation. If you look, it's almost like the very end of the animation sped up. Now this is something that's actually done by the way in it's not done as much, but it was done a lot in old martial arts films when they would cut the actual film and so the very last bit of the punch would be sped up. It would have this feeling of impact. And I think that they wanted to do that. I just am not a 100% sure it actually worked. While sound has some problems in Valhalla, which I will get to at a later time. The handling of processing is not bad. And have a couple fixes patched in as well. They do an excellent job of multi layering the audio so that one foot on the rocks and one foot in the snow actually both plays they should. When looking around here and especially the plane with no hud, I like these banners, these floating banners works really well for a player to identify and visually get some parsed out data from a location.

How Much Do You Know About Planet Mercury?
"Admit it isn't the sexiest planet. There's no atmosphere like venus. It isn't an object of exploration like mars. It isn't big like jupiter in. It doesn't have the beautiful rings of saturn. I'm guessing most of you haven't really given to thoughts about mercury. And i'm reasonably confident in saying that because most space agencies and astronomers don't really think about mercury either more on that in a bit i i should probably do a quick tale of the tape for mercury. Mercury is about point. Four astronomical units from the sun and an astronomical unit is the average distance from the earth to the sun the massive of mercury is approximately thirty eight percent that of earth. the planet has no discernible atmosphere. Which makes it more like the moon than any other body in the solar system. One of the most unique aspects of mercury is that a day on mercury is longer than its year. One year on mercury is eighty seven point nine earth days and one solar day on mercury is one one hundred seventy six days. Mercury is the second hottest planet in the solar system behind venus. The only reason why venus's hotter is that it has an incredibly thick atmosphere that traps heat. Mercury has no atmosphere whatsoever during the day surface. Temperatures on mercury can reach eight hundred and forty degrees fahrenheit or four hundred fifty degrees celsius. Whoever on the nightside of the planet temperatures can dip down to minus two hundred seventy five fahrenheit or minus one hundred and seventy celsius mercury was known to ancient peoples. But they didn't really know much about it because of how close it is to the sun it would only appear just before sunrise and the eastern horizon or just after sunset on the western horizon. The name mercury came from the roman. God mercury who was the messenger of the gods ancient china. It was known as the our star and in modern chinese korean japanese and vietnamese. It is literally known as the water star. The indians associated the planet with buddha and the day wednesday and the germans associated with the god odin and oddly enough wednesdays the mayan people associated mercury with an owl and thought that it was the messenger to the underworld
What if You're Scared to Start School?
"School is starting up again after a summer. Break for many of you especially those of you in the northern hemisphere and it may be your first time back in a classroom building in a long time. Some of you in other parts of the world are in remote learning situations again. And you might not know when you'll be going back. It can be a bit unsettling especially if you're just starting kindergarten that's the case for odin. Here's what he wrote in an e mail. One of his adults helped him send to us. I'm five years old. I live in wilson wyoming. My questions are if i am terrified about kindergarten. Do i have to go. What should i do if i'm scared to go to kindergarten. And what if kids are mean to me. Well odin yes. I think you do have to go to kindergarten. School is where we learn important. Things like reading writing math and languages. It's also where we go to learn how to learn but it's totally natural to feel scared when you're going to start something new in an unfamiliar place.

Rory Young Discusses His Poker Evolution
"Roy. Thanks so much coming onto the shah. Thanks hillary clinton you guys go to really cool project going on but before we start digging into that. Let's talk a bit about your polka janney. And how you ended up where you are in the political world. Yeah i started playing poker. I guess just like everyone with friends off to high school and then that kind of developed into going into the casino usually drunk learning that way a name just learning trial and error And then i just started playing live. Cash live tournaments that kind of thing and Busted my role a couple of times and started playing online and yet just started doing well until i stop bussing narrow and really what do you think led to that moment where something shifted and you own crushing role every time but instead we moving into you things in the right direction i guess i Sore a couple of people that i looked up to and so they could really do this as a profession. But if you wanted to do it as a profession needed to take seriously and not gonna treat it just like gambling and that kind of thing so once i started taking it seriously that way it was when i started seeing progress and you know i think the key point especially for a lot of people who might be listening you know they. They might be still in that phase where they build a role they lose their role. They build role they lose their role. When you say taking it seriously. What did that mean for you in your career. I guess it meant we'll firstly. I think what's important is you need to really understand why you wanna play poker. Do you wanna play poker for like a release of stress soil. Do you want to have fun with friends or do you want really progress in make up the ranks make this a profession so that's important festively for me. A big difference came. When i started studying and started seeing the plays. That will much better than me. They kind of taught me how to study. So that was a pretty big turning point for me always thought like try and find someone. That's way your way you want to be in five years. And trion learn from them and mimic what they've implemented to get to where they want to be.
Plaid plans European hiring spree despite Visa deal falling apart
"Clad and visa have ended plans for their monster merger almost a year after it was announced visa has cooled off. Its deal to buy fintech plaid for five point. Three billion dollars off to the us department of justice sued to block the transaction on antitrust grounds. We're confident we would have prevailed in cooled as plaid's capabilities. A complimentary to these is not competitive. Said al kelly chief executive when the deal was announced in january. Twenty twenty mr. Kelly said it would put the combined company at the epicenter of the fintech world but the doj moved to block the deal in early november arguing. That visa had chosen to a quiet plod because it was developing payments platform that would challenge visa dominance in the sector. Zach perry plaid. Ceo says it has only just begun will also stating it grew. Customers by sixty percent added hundreds of banks to the platform recently So ouattara thoughts on this. I suppose i double on the doj's decision. They made the right decision And then on top of what you think is next applied and indeed for visa you know visas strategists the scott. What's it gonna do instead Who wants to confessed on this one. I have no obvious. Talk on the story bradley. I'll go straight to you oklahoma. Dj positioning oversee. This was a memo. I think the visa describing is future competitor. But it's kind of like if you look at shell or chevron will be one of the big oil and gas guys if they go and invest heavily all by one of the renewable energy providers without be something the doj against odin think. so so. i don't view necessarily a competition. It definitely is an aggressive move would have been by visa. I'm but it's not. Apples to apples. Is competing new way of paying the more. Traditional banking rails. I'm it wasn't than buying competing conference. That i think would have been than trying to own their own. Their own immedi system. So i'm sure agree. With the ruling on deeply never went cold so almazo writes Will arenas once it's interesting time. Isn't it broadly. The famous volcano picture was the Was was the that was mentioned and this idea that plot was gonna move in that direction. The doj's argument was always that will fees is nearly sixty sixty five percent market share in the us. It's clearly dominant position if they're acquiring something that could compete with the very called rails itself then. A potential competitive type was being taken off the table and visa would continue to own a even if the rails would move from called to something that was more account based are the question to your point as to whether or not that was ever going to happen but certainly in a lot of the country. I've seen online In the past a couple of days and days since cisco announced on twitter a lot of the vc community is sort of saying it looks like plot themselves may have been motivated to terminate this because five billion dollars for a for an api data company. Seems like a really big price when visa. I pays it. But it's a testament to why we are infantile. That plot could probably got a better deal. I'm and actually the growth in neo biking and challenging ranking during the pandemic has been so astonishing that why wouldn't plod to go somewhere else and could they built mobile themselves than they cut on the on. The visa's umbrella suddenly seems like fintech. Twitter is very very bullish homeless firm plots perspective. I'm but then also people who all big funds of visa think. This is a good move for them as well because it kind of moves them away from being They were always very friendly with the banks kind of the position with the big banks. They have a great relationship. Plods account dates are access is not very well liked by a lot of the major. Us banks indeed. Many of them have been trying to block access to screen scraping together on direct deals in place and that might be one of the biggest threats in plots business model so visas business just gets a lot clearer. All of a sudden plot may be able to go onum become that competitor or something else so a good result all around personally

"The vikings new. The see. well it was the expense. Their ships crossed to plunder foreign lands and its bountiful depths. Were their main source of food. But the sees formidable power was never truly there's for beneath its depths lived a creature that could upend the vikings world with a single thrash of his tail. His name was your main gonder in norse mythology. Your men gondar is the son of the trickster spirit loki and the giant tests angra boda. He's the middle child of a monstrous brewed. His elder brother fenra is a massive wolf and his younger sister. Hell is goddess of the underworld while his infamous siblings possessive vengeful intelligence. You women ghandoure's destructive tendencies are the product of impulse. The colossal serpent is slow witted but utterly deadly unlike other gods he cannot be reasoned with your men. Ganders name means huge monster and for good reason. His body is so massive that it fully encircles mid guard the human world of the ancient norse but even more on settling than his size are his deadly fangs dripping with venom and lodged in a gaping maw large enough to swallow a giant some of the earliest lower about your men. Ghandour is found in the poetic and prose as the poetic edda is a thirteenth century collection of poems from unknown icelandic authors. That were thought to be written between eight hundred and eleven hundred bc c e the pros at was written by icelandic author slurry sterling listen around twelve hundred bc e. Both eda's are key resources for understanding. The customs of ancient iceland particularly the poetic atta which was written before scandinavia had fully embraced christian.

They belong to the viking age to an era during which the northern people's maintained the liveliest relations with the outside world. The ancient vikings relationship with your men gonder was certainly lively. The giant serpent symbolized the uncontrollable force of a natural disaster inexplicable floods earthquakes and storms. That were beyond humanity's control. Were all blamed on your men. Ghandoure's restless movements and the viking survival depended on the whims of slumbering snake. But your norman ghandoure's mere existence was a menace to all of humanity. A power of such magnitude such an unpredictable monster was a constant threat. A reminder that the end of the world is possible. and there's not a thing we can do about it. Thor sat in darkness listening to a woman's voice. Her tone was soothing but the words she spoke were really grim. She said the sun turns black earth sinks in the see the hot stars down from heaven.

The assembly of gods and goddesses gathered before her and spoke again. This is no nightmarish story. Dear gods it is your future it. Is greg narok thor.

As President-Elect Joe Biden Doubles Down On Calls For Unity, Supporters Have Doubts
"Calls for unity and healing. But as NPR's Toby a. Smith reports, many of his own supporters are having a hard time letting bygones be bygones. He's been saying it since his first speech as president elect, Biden implored everyone to put away the harsh rhetoric give each other a chance and end what he calls this grim era of demonization in America. So that's a wonderful sentiment. It's probably a really sweet pipe dream. Abby Gold 59 year old Democrat from Arizona thinks it may be generations before the rancor subsides enough for any real rapprochement. We're not gonna have any healing until the public at large words to have a nice cup of shut up before they say whatever is on their minds, hoping to help many around the nation are ramping up trainings for cross the aisle conversations. Julie Bowler is with a group called Braver Angels, which runs red blue workshops that aim for common ground and civil discourse. When you have the experience yourself of feeling a little opening a little less frantic rejection, Then you've learned at least that it is possible for some of that softening toe happen, and it's a humanizing process. Enrollment is way up this fall, but Bowler concedes it may be a self selecting crowd that's open to dialogue. There are plenty who would be hard to convince, including 64 year Old New Yorker, Darwin, Bush. When he sees bridging the gap with die hard trump supporters as a bridge too far. This is not an alternate viewpoint. This is racism, Hate lying demagoguery, sociopath, E. What else can I say? Bad people? Capital B. A. D. I will not sit in table with them. I will not have a conversation with them. Nor what Elizabeth and Tracy Murphy, an interracial couple in Georgia, who say they've been harassed, even spit at by people they believe were fueled by the president's divisive rhetoric. For any fence mending, Tracy Murphy says Trump supporters would have to straight up admit that they made a mistake and apologized. It's their turn to extend the olive branch. They're the ones who messed up everything. It's not my job to fix it. You know, is a funny thing that the person who was the victim always has the end of being the bigger person. But many on the right are just is adamant that they're the ones Odin apology by what they see as radical socialists threatening American values. Virginia Republican Katherine Schoonover says she's all for bipartisan cooperation. But she calls Democratic calls for unity. Disingenuous. I don't know how you go from telling everybody that they're all secret Nazi fascists, bigoted, racist people. And then you're going to say, But now let's come together. It's just ridiculous coming from the Democrats now and especially, she says sin. She believes the claims even though there's no evidence, backing them up that the Democrats stole the election. It's shocking, and I think that if if the Democrats try to ram this down of race throats, you have a real problem. It's exactly why Darryl Dwayne, a 51 year old Biden supporter from Washington, D. C has been echoing Biden's calls for unity and imploring his friends, too. Not dig in their heels. Unfortunately, that's a recipe for civil war. But so far, Dwayne says, he's not made a lot of headway. I've gotten in trouble for it. I've gotten called nasty names for being Kumbaya. Same with 58 year old New York Democrat Vincent Downing, who's with a group of humanists calling for more cross the aisle, empathy and understanding. Even though Trump supporters may dehumanize him. He says he won't stoop to the same level. But Downing says it's challenging as he put it. He also tends to think like any good lefty would When I just think I'm right. Right. Right. Right.

Laura Jackson Of Towpath shares Her Roast Chicken Recipe
"Name is Laura. Jackson I'M The, head chef and CO owner of Towpath, which is on the regent's canal in East London. And I'd like to share one of my favorite recipes with today, which is race chicken. Obviously. A very, very simple recipe but I think one that is quite hard to pull off properly and. Rest of chickens in my life. So I think by now I think got the recipe down to T. it's a great one to cook at home because it is so simple and it's a crowd pleaser suits quick to prepare, and the reason I chose this recipe is because while one is totally delicious but. For me my sort of philosophy and the way I love to cook is not anything and the great thing about roast chicken is once you've served the chicken, you can then make a stock with the caucus. which you to make lots of different stews and soups and broths, and then there's also tends to be quite a lot of meet the you miss from carving, which can then be used for another thing. So essentially, you can get three or four dishes from one thing which makes me very, very happy. So all you need to do is get roast chicken. Of Asli, I would say, definitely. To get chicken that has had a good life. So free range organic or from a farm where you know that the having a nice time and I used to always roast chickens with butter but then maybe seven or eight years ago I had to give up Daria had some health issues. So I switched to using olive oil and actually feel that it is much better than using butter because the crispiness of the skin, you can take it to another level because. The burning properties of olive oil much lower than butter. So definitely go for olive oil. For Chicken you definitely want one big juicy lemon, and then head of garlic. If you've got some Tarragon, obey leaves to stuff up. It's bumpy can do that as well but that's not huge thing. So really super super simple. What you want to do I get your oven I would say almost as hot as possible. Obviously if you've got very strong oven, I would do it at about kind of t twenty to thirty, and then I would cut the garlic in half and. Stick. It up. It's bomb with some bay leaves. Tarragon if you have. Cut The lemon half squeeze it all the juice out like you can possibly get out and squeeze all over the chicken and again, then put the lemon up. It's bum. It just cooks more evenly if you've got lots of things stuffed up inside it. Then I put lots of pepper and some Odin Sea salt, and then a really really generous gluck of olive oil. Than, just get your hands in just rub it all over. And then pop it in the oven breasts side up an idea between twenty five to thirty five minutes at a super super high heat. Basically, this is the stage where you want the skin to go. Really really crispy. So, anywhere between that time, and then once the skin is super crispy, you want to turn the heat down really really low. So I turn it down to about one forty, one fifty. And then Cook it for another twenty five to thirty five minutes. So total, you want to cook the chicken for an hour. So if it's super high for twenty five, then you delay for thirty five. Vice Versa and then you basically take out I. don't based or touch it during its cooking and let it rest for a good twenty minutes to half an hour and then it's good to go.

They've got a whole whole line at the very top end. They're gonNA know it. What's The big feature for? Tv's this year about this variable refreshing stoke. Yeah Right. The new to new consoles are going to have their refresh rate. It's great it solves any problems. Here's what Samsung has decided to brand very refreshing ready for this. Real game enhancer plus. It's so good. It's so good job Samsung Fair game. Enhancer like you can't just call it game enhancer because who knows what that means right. Maybe you're just like you're screwing with the colors game enhancer on galaxy phones like the worst nightmare ever. You can't get rid of it so you gotta call came enhancer plus like I'm with I'm with them. They're the plus weight because you need to differentiate it from the other kinds of game enhancers. That could possibly be so your way just to your theory. Is that so? Many people are familiar with game enhancer on Samsung phones. That they will. They will bring over that knowledge to their Samsung Television. Because it used actually don't know if it's called game enhancer first step was the point of granting the Plus. They can have the plus. Why real what is is a real game. Is it a real enhancer or as a real plus what is the real affecting and where what what would be fake in in this world in this context every time we do a story about like fixing your TV settings? Like turn off a motion smoothing. Half of the story is like here. Samsung's dumb name for the future. Here's dumb named for the future. It's like how did we end up in this place? They had a meeting then a meeting where they named it. Something in Korean and they had a meeting where they named it. Something English and in Spanish. They had to localize the name. The ship it all around the world dozens if not hundreds of people have encountered the phrase real game enhancer plus in dozens if not hundreds of languages and they're like yes fun companies. Absolutely if anyone works. It's just like to let me just run around and see how it works. I would. I would be so happy. I two quick points to make one is. I think already mentioned this. But on a different episode but The new the HD two point one. Sounds like they'll have like a mode. It will negotiate game mode for you. It will ask your television. Go into lay low. Latency go into your real game or whatever you think that. Do you think that the xbox will like the xbox plugs into over two point one two Samsung TV and xbox says hey? Tv IN SAMSUNG SAYS. Hey xbox and xbox says hey can you turn on that? Game Odin Samsung's like which one I'm not sure. What do you call it Samsung? It's like you know we see I call it enhanced penciled plus it's like so embarrassed it's shuts off like instead of doing like the link negotiation using binary or hacks. It's actually just like big spears talking to Cortana in natural language. Feel shame. That's how the new. That's how I see my two point one works. My second point is that time is an allusion and therefore variable refresh rate is probably closer to reality. It's happening well you can. You're going to be able to buy the TV's this year you'll be able to buy the consoles. And I it's here actually. We have not talked about enough. This is a very is. It is one of those things that no one will pay attention to because it's so nerdy but will actually make everything from like smart. Tv INTERFACES TO VIDEO Games a thousand times

Ranking Rise May Intimidate Opponents
"Turning pro fifteen year old coke off beat tennis superstar Venus Williams in the first round at Wimbledon she went on to win two more rounds against highly highly ranked players during the tournament. Similarly in two thousand nine seventeen year old Melanie Odin beat a series of top ranked opponents making it to the fifth round around the US Open. How did these newcomers do so. Well one factor. In addition to stellar play could have been there meteoric rise in status both prior prior to and during the tournament opponents seeing the newbies names climb in the rankings might have been somewhat psyched out. It's a phenomenon that Duke University researcher researcher. Hey Mont Cocker calls status momentum. If that wasn't getting women do you.

You feel more threatened bitten by the one who has risen track. Cocker thinks status. Momentum may come into play. Wherever hierarchies are formed and disrupted especially in the world the business his team conducted several online experiments simulating real world business scenarios to investigate the psychological mechanisms behind behind status momentum. They conclude that people.

Origins of the House Division Debate in Ancient Astrology
"We all know is modern astrologers in late twentieth and early twenty first century astrology there's many different forms of House division today and one of the questions that astrologers sometimes have but don't really know how to answer is how this come to be the case how did we end up with you know dozens at least one if not two dozen different forms of House division all of which are thing that are sorta like buying for people's attention and are saying that they are the best system to use for dividing the chart into the twelve sectors or into the twelve houses so one of the things that I would say is that we can actually understand not just this issue but many issues by going back and studying the origins of Western astrology basically going as far back in the western tradition as you can based on studying the surviving texts that the western tradition you can actually come to understand some of these issues and come to understand some of the debates that are things at astrologists have been wrestling with for centuries and sometimes by going back to the roots of these debates you can understand the issue much better and have a fresh perspective with which to sort of attempt to resolve the issue and and to approach it from so we're going to go back to the roots we're GonNa try to answer some questions that people have like which forms of House Division or which systems of House division were used in antiquity other questions like were there some approaches to house division that were more popular than others has become a debate national logical community recently and that's one question that I want to address and answer in the first half of this lecture additionally one of the questions that we might have as modern astrologers is how did ancient astrologers reconcile some of the different approaches to house division in ancient Tom uh-huh and cannot give us any pointers about perhaps how to reconcile different systems with each other today so this is this whole topic is results basically in a series of recent debates about House Division that have been going on over the course of the past few years it all started in November two thousand fifteen and one of the episodes of the astrology podcast where I put out the released an episode on hold Zayn houses where I titled it something like whole sign houses the best system of House division where I was trying to basically make the case for whole sign houses and I was doing it and kind of like a over the top somewhat flamboyant manner even though most of the arguments that I made I would still stand by today and we're still essentially correct but this episode that I put out November of two thousand fifteen got some pushback and there were some proponents of quadrant house division the God angry with me and said you know that's not correct and tried to call me out about different either conceptual or technical historical arguments that was making about house division its origins and to be fair the lecture that I did put out was kind of a blow off lecture was originally just Electra gave for a Adam in bosses school where he asked me to give a lecture and whole sign houses and why anybody would use that approach to house division so I threw together some quick lecture relatively fast and didn't think much of it and decided to release it as a podcast episode of a week or two later so it wasn't exactly the most like formal presentation or careful historical argument that I could make I still stand by a lot of it today but the purpose of this lectures actually to go back and present what otherwise if I was trying to be more careful with a more formal and thorough treatment of the House division issue actually is at least in terms talking about talking about from historical perspective and explaining how the issue came about in ancient astrology and what different forms of House division were used in the hellenistic astrological tradition so after I put that episode out one of the next podcast episodes in episode fifty four of the astrology uncast was a debate with Deborah holding where she came on and we had a long argument about this issue and especially about the historical origins of some of the it forms of House Division and where we debated different things like how prominent or how much whole sign houses was the predominant form the house division versus whether quadrant houses or equal houses were the predominant forms of House Division so that was really the start of this out of series of debates in November two thousand fifteen in that episode of the astrology podcast several months later Robert Schmidt who's one of the leading researchers and Helen cystic astrology he put out a audio recording which was kind of like a workshop in June of two thousand sixteen and he was explicit Lee responding to the debate that he heard between Deborah holding and myself back the previous November and then he was putting forth his odin sort of take on the issue and take on what happened in the hellenistic astrological tradition and this represented to some extent a new action and a revision of some of his previous arguments about House Division that he had put out starting in the nineteen nineties when he was involved in putting out in public Shing translations through project hindsight of some of the Hellenistic astrological texts so that was the second turning point in the sort of sequence of debates and then finally I had to sort of that summer was in the process of writing my book Hellenistic Astrology the Study of fate and fortune and initially I just had a small treatment of house division at the end of the chapter on houses in my book and Hellenistic astrology somewhere around the middle will and it was just a brief sort of treatment or overview of some of the issues with the subject in the Hellenistic tradition and and how the debate got started but as the debate with Deborah Holding and then subsequently with Schmidt putting out his new arguments in his house division lecture in June of two thousand sixteen I had to spend the summer writing a much larger and much more extended and detailed treatment of the House division issue that represented essentially the final word on the subject at least up to that point and that became chapter eleven of my book which was released in February of two thousand and seventeen and titled Hellenistic Astrology Study of Fate and fortune so those are like the three important defining turning points that happened as far as I was concerned learned in those three turning points in this debate that was recent about House Division and what was interesting that I noticed at the time in retrospect back in two thousand sixteen is that the debate with Deborah holding actually occurred reckless same time that there is an exact same turn Neptune's square in the sky and then what was weird as several months later when Robert Schmidt put out his house division workshop that was the right around the time that the second exact Saturn Neptune square occurred in the sky and a few months later that summer right around the time of the third you'd exact Saturn Neptune Square I actually completed essentially the chapter of my book on House Division where I put forward my fury about how all of this came together so I only know that because I thought that was always interesting from an astrological and may be a symbolic or philosophical standpoint Clinton might give us some insight into from an astrological standpoint what this house division issue is really all about and some of the things that it entails where sometimes people are trying to draw hard and fast boundaries between things that are difficult or sort of not very common Crete and that's a pretty broad way of sort of referring to the issue of House cusps and where to where to draw the line between these different divisions in the twelve signs of the Zodiac in the twelfth houses so I wouldn't dimension that because there might be something about the House Division issue that is must inherently like a Saturn Neptune or has a Saturn Neptune type signature and that might be hard to pin down for different reasons and actually we're going to get into some of those reasons in this lecture and some of the things that make this issue murky but I suspect based on that and based on the fact that those three important turning points in this debate happen around the time of the Saturn Neptune Square that that sort of signature might go back further in history and it may be that some of the earlier develop admits with House division also occurred under Saturn Neptune alignments but it's something interesting to just keep in mind as you're trying to deal with this issue yourself to realize that it's an issue where you're trying do pull the there's a polar attention are contrast between two different extremes in terms of What's going on in Alex and what astrologers are trying to define and pin down and sometimes what they're trying to define and pin down is very hard so as a result of those three developments it's I actually gave a lecture on this topic where I tried to summarize that chapter of my book which ended up being a very long and perhaps overly detailed like fifty plus page treatment of the House division issue right in the middle of my book and because it was still an ongoing debate there is different rumors circulating about House division over the course of the next couple of years I gave essentially a version of his presentation on the origins of the House Vision Issue I at the Northwest Astrology Conference in May of two thousand seventeen and Seattle and then again a year later at the united astrology conference in May of two thousand eighteen in Chicago so what I'm presenting here today is basically just a slightly revised version of the aim lecture and the recording didn't come out well during the lecture last May last year because the microphone died like halfway through the lectures so I have always meant Shoe Redo it and I'm finally getting around to doing it today especially since next month Austin copy and Kelly surtees or coming out to Denver and we're going to record a series a two part series on the signification of the houses so I always meant to do the more detailed treatment of the House division so let's jump into it all right so I have to do a bit of a historical backdrop I in order to catch up people who might not be familiar with the history of ancient astrology but to put it really simply most of the techniques that we associate with Western astrology originated about two thousand years ago during what historians call the Hellenistic era so specifically around let's say around Circa one hundred B C e roughly speaking give or take maybe a century or give or take a few decades we see the introduction of the fourfold system of Balaji which is still essentially what is used in Western astrology today sill essentially the same system that's gone through some changes and there's been some modifications but at the core of it. Western astrologers are still using charts that consist primarily of for parts and one part is displaying the planets the second is the twelve signs of the Zodiac? The third is the concept of aspects or configurations between planets and then finally the fourth part of this system is the concept of the twelfth houses so this system the came together around this time around let's say one hundred B. C. e. part of that system represented a sort of synthesis of the earlier astrological traditions where there were long astrological traditions in Mesopotamia and Egypt that existed and had been developed and fed into and then were eventually synthesized together in the hellenistic period so part of the Hellenistic this interest action of this floor fourfold system represents the continuation and the synthesis of an earlier astrological tradition that had been going on for at least two thousand years at that point however around
'Call of Duty' Will Have Battle Pass
"Like you should go back to racing Dave fixed a lot of the issues some of it is still egregious but it's not as straight up I've poked defense and then punched the fence and the kind of lineup leaving lay on the fence for a bit and like all right we're resilient we can kind of deal with a bit more than subscription service you're choosing to buy this or not but it's essentially like it's a loop box that's not we're not loobox the mail service sent to your house base and that's when the core thing that you came for is no longer what it was and I think that that is the balance and need to find is giving people enticing things that aren't monetize it it's how you mark is it like it is not just a business model it's also game designed behind that business model got is one hundred percent and especially when we've been talking about Apple Arcade Z. how the game is being affected just to be able to make more money right and I feel like that's not a bad thing it just can easily be a bad thing when you let balanced kind of one way or the other and that's where alternate forms of revenue come in where they can only do that because of the subscription nature of apple arcade right with the subscription nature of battle passes they be allowed to have a little bit more leniency in not having a nickel dime you every single where the every single place that they can right we'll see how this law like I'm curious how this works out for them revenue wise yeah because if it if it's a huge failure ever doing this again going right back to lou boxes but I mean it's also called easily the best selling game every year this game is a reboot of sorts of the best popular ones yeah not necessarily on comedy but like the one you think of duty so hopefully this one actually works out for them I'll tell you what's not working out is seventy six is delaying disease this comfortably post from Bethesda and honestly when I opened his dock this morning usually when I'm hosting I make the dock Greg had already made the dock and he put this story injustice story so I'm guessing this is shout out to Greg Miller who really wants to talk about this but can't right now really wants to like fall and seventy six van is being want to like a game that people don't like that next that's right for so long still try forget there's video evidence of this watch our coverage where he is like stoked it's like all right but hey you can hear one or two more times yeah thirty six is delayed the NBC so I think it was last he three Bethesda announced that hey we've heard you start making quested fallout seventy six that don't just have humans are like human players but also NBC kickers that are like written like an actual fallout game so that was opposed to come this year today with post that was saying we've been hard at work on fallout seventy six this year including our biggest free update yet waste landers were excited about how as leaders coming together but it's going to need more time to do the Best most Polish update it can be so we're delaying it released a Q. One next year good news there's no huge games coming out next thing to distract you from playing fallout certainly not in the first four months of the year we continued to reevaluate arch in change our processes to make sure that we're doing our hit star quality bar and yours we adjudged delay but we know you're worth the extra time wastelands are turning out to be one of the largest expansion we ever done and it changes their entire world with human ABC's returning we'll be sharing details over time but here's a first look at some of what's to come and waste energy could read the full blog post for pictures and all that stuff but I wanna taking the snark aside trying to get around the nation tippety here I just feel like this is such a wasted opportunity of a game because this could have been something special could have been something that people really latched onto in love and I think all that would've took is a little bit of patients and not needing a game at e three I think but that's the kind of they panicked a hit a point where the realized Osha we're one of the big dogs now we have to have a three press conference we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA do it we're going to do it every year and I feel like that works for them because they have enough of a library that they can talk about here's the deal see updates to the game that came out last year here's a couple of VR experiences Houston brand new titles to look forward to but that one big but here's what's coming this year and here's what you should be excited about because that worked so well for them multiple times and when it got to this this was the game nobody was really asking for this which they needed to prove why was worth it more than anything and as we've seen with the launch they didn't do that right this game could have been special instead of it coming out a year ago it came out next year when these things from the get would've made sense but that's the thing I think Mr Got Kinda drunk on file responses 'cause like those games have always been a little broken in different ways and how much that like it depends on your experience of how much a little means but I think they saw that it was not reacting or the initial releases were going well but they put in so much marketing work and preordered and all that stuff like well we got her as of this year so I remember last year Todd Howard or not let's see three two zero says what would you do differently what has that is as I would have put this early access for ear I which is the logical thing to do in this the thing they're talking about now should have been hey we're ready to launch fallout seventy six this is the game yeah this is the full release aim and that would have made so much more sense I feel like people would have accepted a bit more early access still kind of a dirty word dirty word especially on the console side of things but that would in so much smarter and so much more beneficial to them in the situation we're in now where honestly this is surprising headline I think Odin not that interesting it's like who's besides Greg Miller really bummed about this right now I don't WanNA clown for delaying a game for Polish reason they should do not you should totally do that always but also I kind of wonder do you think something's happening because they this is apparently having some development trouble and the thing they realized before the Game Lodge Oh which is doing we're working on this thing but also a can we Nakimora left or left we don't order what they really know what went on there she's still looking for work and I saw her tweeting being a platinum games today interesting awesome it she would go back because he was working on being ETA and all that suffer really but there's also doomed got delayed till next year so I kinda wonder liking all their big games they were like they showed this past he three are now not coming out this year here's the thing I I don't take those things as a bad sign I I think that if anything that is them listening to me it just gave where it's just like hey there's no rush on this stuff like but does the are a known entity people like them people respect him they got through the followers six per fluffy did they do like I think that they did in the sense that when it was happening it felt like they were never coming back it felt like they were straight up cancelled like no one he's going to want to watch or cover as conference again and then they came back and he three months later with things the show but I feel like the answer to that is in are they are they good at announcing new games it's when they had show the next fall out the next rose whatever are the question's GonNa be are you gonNA fuck this up again yeah and I don't think so because those games the elder scrolls the core fallout we got some time on those I think that doom needs to be good for that to not be an issue right and I feel like they can take they don't need them to come out this year we don't need the games this year granted next year it's probably going to get lost show but people are so excited for that that I don't think that's good win to really take the people wanNA play maternal are GONNA play it regardless right and that game just needs to be fantastic and I believe it's going to be and if they need them need more time for that I think that they're very smart call taking it if they would've put out this year and it's it was fine I don't think there's a chance to turtles going to be bad right if it was just twenty sixteen again yeah then I think that that could that could be more like a but if they come out with some baller shit which I expect them to next you I don't think anybody's really going to be worried about elder scrolls are fallout come twenty twenty two or whatever big doom fan I like doom twenty sixteen I'm a big fan of doom in general just the style of arcade shooters and stuff so are you a big animal crossing van not at all okay I was going to ask you which of those who games you play over that animal switch between the two because I know animal crossing is going to do the thing of you've done all this stuff come back tomorrow I will give you more tasks all right just switch to killing demons and hell this might be the first animal crossing that I even give a attempted shot what was the what reasons have you never clicked his look at him I this does not look like anything I wanna do it looks like chores I don't like I don't like collecting twigs I play video games to get away from chores played shores to get away from real people like dogs it's funny on collect thon game whereas animal crossing you're literally doing fucking shores are I honestly the Games are more similar than you would think I know that's bullshit the no all right we'll see what happens mark twenty-first we'll see who talks about one all right persona franchises surp- center franchise surpasses ten million copies sold this is in venture be by Jeff Grubb is taking nearly a quarter of a century but the persona series has hit ten million copies sold that includes all games in the series the main role playing adventures as well as spin offs like a Dungeon crawler persona q two developer atlus revealed as milestone in a blog post are as Japanese persona website today is revealed that it is planning to hold an event to reveal more about the upcoming persona five royale royal which is revamped version of the persona. RPG royal is deal replacement for October thirty first and it is certainly going to advertise total sales going forward persona growing franchise for Sega and Atlas the game first game before Golden Get it together and Jeff Grubb I know you're listening Vida since then the series has found a larger audience personify for example surpassed two point seven million copies sold all on its own okay tim how do you sort of series I don't care I haven't feeling if I were to jump into it I really really dig it my like final fantasy What's I like poke them on a lot and and also like anime a lot persona seems like it would be up my alley I also just can't commit to these Super Long Games drives me what's but you'll you'll collect all of the Vulcan whatever's and smash brothers spirits collective it's a quick fifteen minutes every time they knew one some say someone percent five is one of my favorite game it yeah that's true so you should go to sleep ten million copies sold what surprises me is that seems like a low number for the entire franchise but then when you stop and think about it like this just
An Interview with Jamie Bell of 'Skin'
"His popcorn where I tell you what's happening at the movies and I'm going to tell you about a movie called skin. Today you already know about a movie called rocket man. They both starred my guest Jamie Bow. I don't know when you have time your new father again. GotTa hang out with your kid true. <hes> I'm not working right now. Okay so it's all good. It's all good now. We can see by this with skin in the poster and this is a true story. I knew nothing about the story you know when I whenever the script the first time time you know as a movie that <hes> <hes> with with everything that was going on the news it was quite an century was a movie that felt very urgent yeah exactly and I felt like it. It Sean a light on something that <hes> I think ordinarily we could choose to ignore and I think any kind of normalization of this is dangerous. <hes> there's obviously a redemptive element to this and no as the phone kind of tying things up in a nice boat because life isn't like that right but we'll tell us a little bit though for those people that don't that you're playing somebody who decides basically the PAT. He took as a white supremacist is not the way he should go and how basically you get rid of that. I really love how literally he tries to get rid of that ink that stuff on his. Let's get to do it but it's a way to dramatize what he's doing what he's ripping off. I mean like the Brian wine was a career <hes> Neo Nazi that worries when when we first meet him he's completely linked up from that to <hes> and he's the way the journey the characters very much one of an unconscious man who comes to an awakening <hes> <hes> he he realizes the choices he has made a bad ones. He meets this woman who changes his life forever. She has these beautiful goes. He becomes obsessed with and he tries to get himself fat which for a lot of people who try and do that has a lot of very grave consequences but it's difficult. I think for these people to leave the ideology so strong <hes> there's almost kind of <hes> this <hes> almost an addictive quality to to to the to the families that they're in into these groups that are in most of these people are very very wayward within get involved with this <hes>. Suddenly you belong should they have. They have a <hes>. They feel like that. There's a pat on the back and there's a kind of a good job. <hes> <hes> said by somebody so <hes> yeah this. Is this the real hero the stories this guy called Daryl Lamont Jenkins. He worked for the one people's project. He is literally the people out in the street opposing these people and he can spot the good in some of these people in with an amazing sense of compassion reach out to them and and and say you know I can get you out of this if you're willing and he does US and through two years of Surgery Brian is given a gift. It's all removed from his face and and he has the potential to change his life and start again. Well we watch the movie and we can by watching the movie and watching your performance and watching how it's done put ourselves in that position kid but it's hard in the beginning with it hard for you when they said. Would you play this guy he I think so I was kind of a kind of moral see-saw for me. I like the first time I talked to the real. Brian was the dish Charlottesville for example. I remember ending that conversation with him and calling the director immediately after thinking <hes>. I don't think this is a good idea. I think this is some uh-huh feels the wrong time to tell the story <hes> also filmmaker by the way is Israeli filmmaker <hes> <hes> his yeah exactly his family went through the atrocities of the Holocaust. I'm so for him to want to tell the story and have that unique sense of compassionate <hes> that extension of kindness. I thought it was quite interesting. <hes> uh-huh and again you know when I would walk around <hes> the small town of Kingston was shot this film it would have been covered in tattoos and human nature is to usually ignore the monster next they don't. WanNa look at things that are challenging in any way or scary yeah. They look and I feel like that if we do that as a culture that's dangerous because we can radically normalize. These kinds of people and I think that's very dangerous so hopefully this film. If nothing else is going to wake up call we don't see him in a really good light in the beginning. No no no no and we're basically seeing somebody where you do. WanNa look away not just because of the tattoos you WanNa look away because you're thinking this is reprehensible bowl. What's your he's a character. In initially who is completely detached from <hes> empathy he's detached from compassionate and love from kindness <hes> he's. He's literally I think he's Com- completely lost touch with his ideology even means he's in a drunken stupor most of the time <hes> and he's he's indoctrinated by these people. I mean the the ideology that this group follow is based in kind of Viking Odin mythology which is about bloodlines and just complete nonsense so <hes> sure it was about that character finding something in this <hes> Julie Character Daniel McDonald placed finding some sense of stability and finding that there are these chasms of empathy Kathy that he has and tenderness and <hes> and suddenly that coming to the surface is a family that is kind of ready made for him knocked his family and he begins to see a bigger world through them and she's really good. She's an incredible downtown yeah yeah. That's quite remarkable. You see that through this movie I mean the performances are all spectacular that people are giving especially when you see veer for Migo Goer Bill camp or people play that people you really don't yeah I mean I gotta say especially with some like very much of that was kind of unscripted and she really just turned up and we didn't have much prep time with her at all and she just came in doing this wonderful. Three dimensional fully realized character that was really a scary to all of us the places she was phenomenal whenever I felt like literally terrified and I was meant to be the one that was scary which is great eight but it was it was a hardship I think for all of us. We all knew what was in the headlines. We all knew the kind of will that we were living in and and now important this was to portray these people the way they are and I think what about this menu playing. What was your relationship with him complicated <hes> purely because of the things he's done you know I i.? I'm someone who finds forgiveness quite difficult to come by. You know <hes>. I really liked to hold people accountable for their actions. <HES> I go meet with them. He's in the witness protection program and I spent like a week just kind of chatting to him and mostly talking about <hes> with them about stuff that wasn't in the script his childhood and <hes> you know <hes> what it's early life was like <hes> he's the other thing about him as if if you didn't know that he wants look like that. I mean ee you would have no idea that he was once covered in from I mean he has been given a gift. He's been given a new lease on life but he's an extremely paranoid person. He lives in constant fear. He's he lives in constant reckoning and that that's what he has to atone for for the things. He's <hes> things he's done. The great thing that you literally do and that we see in this is that we see somebody removed food than ink and then we wonder that gone you could take it away goes but what has to come away has to come from here and from here as well. That's only proven through action. That's only proven to <hes> but I think certainly right now. I think it's worthwhile question to ask how much compassionate we have and how far does that go and in the hope and this movie for me is that there really is <hes> the kindness of strangers people like. Dr Lamont Jenkins who might call to pleasants phone is solely responsible for getting mad at this movement you know <hes> the the money and the funds that were provided for surgery provided by an anonymous donor <hes> you know if anything that's the hope of the the move me is that there are there are human beings out there willing to extend this compassion and to say I'll. I'll extend myself if you do but you do that as an actor right when you're putting on somebody's skin no matter what part you're playing whether there's any disguise into what do what made you do this. I mean I know Billy Elliot. It is the beginning and Billy Elliot is a lot like you yeah well. He that movie exactly like me yeah. I mean anything. All of this show the old. You said yes sure it was a time when a film set for me that movie <hes> I remember being very overwhelming like God circus really did come to town and now the cameras pointing at me and this is very extreme and just really trusting got like I had no idea what I was doing this film and the decision to make this <hes> was one about really challenging myself and seeing <hes>. Is it possible to completely transform myself to degree. I'd never done before for <hes> and it was still challenging. Thing that is one of the most challenging things for me was was not holding the character in any form of judgement. That's what they always say like. ECON judge yes you difficult the circumstances of course <hes> it was important that I met him and introduced myself and everything else but then also just that that level of detachment that the character has and the reason I bring up Billy Elliot in addition to being such a seminal thing for you and what was happening to you is that you're bringing brought. Brought up this way you you've got a sister who's a dancer. You know this is. This is so much like you and yet. There's all these cameras around. I'm sure you're saying what what what my way through that movie for the first time you know but I think also me. I'd never met my father before <hes> the relationship that billy has with his father in that film is very challenging. Certainly this is a character who certainly lacked male presents a male role model and that guidance and that leadership that is looking for Elton John when he saw Billy Elliot and Ken wept he was weeping when I met him when supposedly easy in the movie version before he writes the kid when you're a kid yes exactly he's weeping. He's weeping because he his own a father <hes> he's he's passed but <hes> <hes> as if you've seen we have very good relations with his own sexuality and everything else and I think the most heartbreaking thing for him was that he never showed up to one of the show's not one so I think when Billy's father tons up into that film and tons up for his son and ED performing with the Royal Ballet School I think that really destroyed him but you know that the looking up to people in having examples and they're so crucial crucial is so important you know <hes> in this instance maybe Brian his life would have done it differently. What happens now after you meet l.. Well John Again and you're playing burnt-out movie. It's like really weird. I don't know what the next connection is very strange because obviously did the musical <hes>. Lee Hall who wrote wrote the musical euro rocket man. There's a kind of cosmic tethers to this <music> <hes> and I love that as top in it which is again antithesis to this character is such a loving supportive accepting human being and such a loyal oil friend <hes> it was really nice after doing this which is quite an unpleasant experience <hes> <hes> to play a character like that. That was just someone who so I'm lovely. So is that made you have years and years of therapy are have you been living sort of relatively normal life. I mean I would. I hope relatively normal. It seems relatively normal to me. <hes> you know I mean I think it's all relative experience but I think you know works for me is a real form of therapy. Get to play some characters from lots of different places in different walks of life and <hes> <hes> that to me is very interesting. I get to meet all the people that I'm playing most of the time with US revolutionary <hes> he's he's long since passed. Even people P turn. I did a phone call. Film Stars don't die in Liverpool with Annette Benning. He was around. He was extremely useful. Extremely love the guy to hang out with.
