Dragoon davita thought he was going home but the military had other plans after all are of the to invasions in france. We we were going on then. The and also watt speakers. Get your gear in order.

"Get me where i wanna be. Yeah on normal levels exactly. Yeah they both I think there are both fulfilling fantasies right. And they're they're both dreamers. And that's something i. It took me a long time to to understand that. Like i 'cause i always what did they see each other like what could possibly but my mother she grew up in this island that was so subjugated and then saw americans as this power status like freedom and so had in her mind from a young age. She just wanted to marry an american. She's she wanted to get out of okinawa and my father Had after he had been fighting in vietnam always had an affinity for japanese. Culture is very obsessed with samurai. One you know why he joined the military to like. I i wanna i wanna be those noble warrior. I want to save people. And that's kind of where his mentality was coming from. Two part of this attraction that it is this kind of mutual objectification Romanticize asian of each other at also not to mention that and it took me a while to understand this too because they're my parents. But when i see pictures of them i'm like they are beautiful like they were both too so good looking that i am so that was probably maybe ninety five percent of it right as the traction goes so yeah i think that all of that played into it and another thing that they told me to is that the both each other is different from everybody else. My and my dad acted different than the other soldiers. And my dad's my mom acted different from the other nightclub hostesses. So just yeah just a little bit of standing out. I mean it seems like for your dad that a sense of duty and honor is just like it's it's what wakes him up in the morning. Yes you know. It sounds like the way you described to this day. It's like that is the thing where he is the protector..

"There's so many things. I'd love to explore with you. But i mean i think there's this really interesting starting point for me. Which is i knew. Nothing about but for one thing. When the first time. I heard Of okinawa it was in the context of the sort of famous blue zones. You know so it. Was this notion that there are a handful of these places around the world where people seem to live forever. Nba healthy until like the latest days. Where there's an unusually high number of people who are over the age of one hundred and okinawa's one of those and and when people try to deconstruct will what's going on here. That would make that happen like the the thought process was from the researchers. Well it's it's a blend of community and he did clear reason to get up in the morning. And it was primarily with Okinawan women not men. Actually i had it always been a my radar in that context. And i'm thinking. Wow it must be this sort of magical place. That's always been that way and do serve you open and then pepper through the book that the history is as actually way more complex and complicated and in entire generations seasons really dark as well. Yeah i thought of that too. How how long people live there and i. I was told that the diet you know like the diet and the climate and That like physical things but then it became became aware of the fact that this tight knit community. Right like there are They're never lonely. Like there's always when i went to visit my family. They're just constantly doing things together and sharing and that can help you live longer as well and i'm also think trying to attach like how did that come to be and maybe it is because of this dark history as well like all they have is each other Through a lot a lot of the time and they're also my experience very grateful people there so happy for what they have and Yeah it's it's. I think when you go through something like that together really a bind you to each other and to a place to. They're very happy and proud to be on the island. And i am to Whenever i'm there i do feel that that. I'm so glad that this is where i came from. So when when you use the phrase when they when you go through something like that Assure a bit of what we're talking about it because people probably don't have a lot of context yeah Where do i start. Well it was a colony of china For a very long time tributary of china and then for a long time since about sixteen hundreds. I believe it was a colony.

"Rather than the pacific ocean. And i think in general the japan side of okay. Sorry of of japan is colder than the pacific ocean side. So i knew it's going to be cold and i. I picked that some warm clothes. I would wear layers but when we we arrived in fukuoka airport in coca city we realized it's very very cold and then you know at the theme park is spend most of your time outside waiting for attraction in the watching parades and things like that so i got a little bit worried that i would be too cold and i wouldn't be able to enjoy my time in has ten so i went shopping for jacket and i went into eighteen. Eighty nine european fashion stores. Very cheap store usually vite cheap and a gym. I saw down jacket in it was on sale. Maybe three or four thousand yen anyway very very cheap for a down jacket and but still i. I found it hard to decide whether to buy the dan jacket or not because once. I come back to okinawa i. I wouldn't really need a down jacket because it doesn't get so cold. You know. I can just wear regular warm clothes. I don't need to really dress for a for a winter hike it. There's no snow and winter. Temperatures are maybe around ten degrees. It gets very cold but in the end. I decided i would buy the down jacket. I thought even if i only wore it for my for our trip to has timberwolves three or four thousand yen. I thought it would be worth it because i could enjoy my trip more. I think it was worth it. I i wore the dan decade for those three or four days. We had a good time and it was very very cold. I don't remember the temperature. But i'm sure it was close to zero around the time i think it was november or december when we went to house tumbles and then of course we came back to okinawa and i probably put down jacket in the cause at thinking that i would need it again.

That image of okinawa is that it is always sunny that there is always a blue sky and it's always warm but of course this is not true. Okinawa is not a tropical island. He disclosed to sub tropical islands. So it is usually warm and there are warm and even hot days in the winter but it does get cold not terribly cold in there there have been there have been some Incidences there have been some times when it had snowed. But i have never seen snow in okinawa. And i imagine most okinawan. People have never seen snow in okinawa. Either but today today is cold. You cannot today.

"While come ltn Jay over. How are you? Hey, we're good. We're good. It's a good day today and We're looking forward to having this conversation with you and learning all all more about everything that's doing sharing her story. Yeah. I'm excited to learn more about you right work from welcome to bump. So the question that we always start with what's your heritage? Okay. We'll uncle I I tend to describe myself as a bay tree with southern roots. So I am a black American I can go back oddly three generations, daughter slaves, and my my mother, my father's family are both from the deep South and so I know We've got some some heritage there. We've got some potential connection with some of the native American communities down in the deep South and so I consider myself a black woman without you my father is a black American from the south as well, and my mother is from Okinawa and so I grew up you know the early part of my life being a kid China, find my place and understand you know definitely at that stage in life. Asian Americans Japanese, Americans looking at me and saying, Oh, you're one of us in as I grew I really began to connect the identify with my brothers. And my friend group were mostly. African American black folks in Brown's votes and so in my seven eight, nine year old self like I really started to to grasp that side of my identity, and then through adulthood I came to really appreciate the fact that you know my father's side we can't go back too far in ancestry dot com. But on my mother's side, we could go back almost four centuries and so are beginning to hit a appreciation of not just being you know a mixed kid but also really learning Abou-. Okinawans. End for the most part they're like most other island folks you know whether it's Hawaii or you know galloping area, you know they were agricultural on farmers and. Politicians. So yeah, we really appreciate the fact also that we grew up in place in San Jose that was was so diverse that just added to our natural heritage but our environment really complimented with everything you can imagine everyone you could imagine being represented in our childhood is pretty cool. Totally Hell. Awesome. Now I really love the way that you talk about that day because I think it. It says a lot about who you grow the be. Once you truly understand where you came from the heritage in the blunt let that's running through you in just ten by that connection and taking the time to be able to do that really does say a lot. Of. Getting to know your ancestors Alps really. Allow reflect your true heritage and we've been fortunate to be able to do some digging in that sense well, and now you're raising a child right and you be able to have these conversations with them and share the history that you've been able to carve out in the history that we don't know because that's also a reality that there's a lot of erased stuff that happened from our ancestors from your ancestors at how do we find out you know? How does that work? How what are your thoughts on all of this having that conversation when your kid grows up and says or even now right? Early you know he's very fortunate to have a large extended family him. So we're really teaching him the concept of cousins and grandparents just like your family and look at all the people that love you just because of you and you're born into this family, and so he'll always, I, think hopefully grow up with the understanding that has a real connection to family and Then, you know we just begin to introduce different traditions whether it be food or music or four different ways of wellness exercise like just Kinda like incorporating culture into how we raise him I. think totally I think she puts it lightly when she says introduces he's gotten a ton of like very straight up. These are what people who look like you have accomplished in life. and. So you know whether it's books and music and through family in also just pointing out people on TV. So He's very aware I think has a toddler has at this point the self confidence of like, Oh, I can do anything we have not. We've shielded him from much of the conversations that are going on the streets and on our TV screens about race and police we haven't Bro side yet. He still doesn't know that there are a pretty significant number of people who might treat them differently on color skin. We're kind of holding that for a little bit. We figure a he's aware of two disasters right now covid nineteen and fires we figure Donna. Four year old but we're also beginning to have that conversation because it's important for the. No. So many black and brown parents will be having a conversation about how to conduct yourself out public and how to be aware of when people whether they're police are others. You know how not to be blinded to and and to be able to react and have situational awareness is Kinda, keep them.

Martha MacCallum Discusses the "Unknown Valor" of Iwo Jima

"Martha McCallum. Here you are on dose of leadership I can't believe it welcome to the show it's great to be here Richard Thank you for having me big fan of you obviously in in your work that you've done and obviously a big fan of of the book being a primary ince unknown valor, and what prompted you to write this I think I know the answer this I see say but I just I'm curious about why you got so passionate about World War Two about that generation and specifically you would Jima. It was a personal connection when I was growing up my mom used to occasionally take out letters that were written to her and to her father by her beloved cousin Harry Gray who had been killed at Iwo Jima when he was only eighteen years old and the grease from his death just sort of was there never went away it wasn't something we talked about. All the time obviously but it was very real and when I read the letters, they're so beautiful and he was such an eloquent eighteen year old and wrote great informative letters that had a lot of information them about what was going on and they would often when I did pull out, dust him off and read them I couldn't really get through them without. Being brought to tears. So, and of course, I never knew him but his mother, my aunt, an was someone I was very close to and his sister my aunt Nancy also somewhat I was very close to end became got to know on such a deeper level through the writing of this book which grateful for. So when I started to think about writing a book I. Sort of couldn't get around the subject it was it felt as if it was calling me and it was a story that I needed to tell and I also knew, I wanted if I was going to spend the time and effort writing I wanted it to be a real book of history a book where I would learn a lot. So if I was going to take time away from my work and my personal life to dedicate myself to this, I wanted it to be a inexperienced. That would pay off for me. You know that would be a lot. So it did that in spades and honestly by the time I was done I thought if this book doesn't sell more than ten copies, it will still have been worth it to me. You know I I it resonates with me because I became friends obviously in the marine. Corps and we look at Iwo, Jima with sacrosanct and I've never visited the island. You're fortunate if actually put your feet on the ground there and I've flown over a few times when I was in the rink was a pilot in the Marine Corps and we'd fly over. You would Jima going back and forth from Okinawa and stuff. And it was weird when every time we'd fly over it in, we'd all be talking and joking that. But when you fly over it, they're just be the stunned silence every time we fly over you a German and to give you these chills just because if anybody studies at knows the stories in particular that how many people sacrificed their lives and were injured, it's just phenomenal thing about the numbers in the short amount of days where on such a three square mile or piece of dirt you know it's just. It really is it's almost as if it's a piece of the moon race loading in the middle of the Pacific and I completely connect with what you're saying. Of course I have never served but I was on this flight that only to a once a year it's A. It's to you know a memorial slight to honor those who were lost there, and it is a memorial that has Japanese dignitaries that attend and American. Veterans that attend and their families in a few reporters and people who are interested get to go on his flight. So I was really fortunate to be on it and there was this amazing commodity on the flight and we had all traveled a lot I flew from Newark to Tokyo. And then Tokyo to Guam and then Guam alternate late to gene on the day of our trip there, and it's a day trip. You go in the morning couple of hours on the plane fly back that evening and the Japanese government has complete control over Gina. They have since the sixties. So they dictate the amount of time that Americans are allowed to be on the island, right which in and of itself is sort of an interesting situation. But So it's all very regimented when you land, they take your passports away. They put them in a bag when you're ready to go they give them back to you. And you can leave. But when we were flying from Guam to Jima and the plane was obviously only people who were all on this sing of our mission and we had first class about five, I believe. A woman veterans who were on a couple of from Tarawa but there were five I believe you Jim Veterans a couple of who had never been back. So we're saying sort of camaraderie everyone's joking around a little bit talking to each other with all get to know each other over the last few days on Guam and some of the things that we did together before that. But as soon as the pilot said, okay, you're going to see what Jim now coming up on your left as soon as we dip under these clouds. And as soon as we dipped under those clouds, there was silence across the plane and I looked over at some of these veterans looking down on the island through the window hadn't been there since they were seventeen eighteen, nineteen years old and you could feel that flood of emotion come over them. They saw it and I will never forget the dramatic approach to that island landing on it. It's still steaming as a volcano in different parts of the island. So it's it's smokes while you're looking at it it's kind of a surreal place.

An Ex-Marine's Journey Of Healing And Unraveling The Mysteries Of The Mind With David Richards

"Richards David Richards, is a business professional life coach Yoga instructor and. and Speaker on self development. He spent his early childhood living in various parts of the United States and three years living on the island of Okinawa Okinawa Japan after graduating university with a degree in English he was commissioned and officer in the Marines. He served fifteen years active duty before deciding to break out from the bought that his father and brother at followed in making the military. Career and left the Marines to pursue a life as a civilian, he joined Cisco Systems in two thousand six and shortly thereafter discovered yoga. Don't do it insightful and sometimes silly. It blends elements of Yoga with quantum physics to bring the esoteric together with the practical for eight, truly unique perspective of how the mind works in greeting easily understood self development plans that create lasting change for a more fulfilling life so. These are some clues or hints into our. We might be speaking about today. David really great to have you on our show, and are you ready to inspire? So, glad to be here. Thank you for the introduction. Absolutely a registered with your audience stories and things that have worked things that haven't worked, but the the growth that the journey of life is so absolutely wonderful, so I start. Let's talk about your child to begin with. What was it like growing up in your house or in your home? Yeah, it's. We had a loving very loving nurturing environment. And everybody grows up with their sense of normal, and so for me. My sense of normal was we moved every two to three years. And? What I didn't realize was a lot of that created. Beliefs in me. Just, really long relationships you a one day. You might best friends and the next day I'm moving because. I'd I'd got orders to a new duty station. And so this is certainly before the age of the Internet. And on facebook and chatting and texting, and so our French just stopped But it was great to you know on the on the flip side. It was great to see different parts of the country and early age great certainly live in Japan for for three years now got to South Korea got the Philippines there, and and just being exposed to different parts of the world at that age had tremendous impact that still with me. Today got it. So that moving know that having a friend and losing the friend because you're moving to another city are part of the country. What sort of impacted that have on you in retrospect because I remember. When I was a kid, it happened the other way for me. 'cause I used to have a friend, and then he would move to a different city. Burns would get relocated and deep down. I felt that I could. Could never have a longtime friend. I always wanted to have that best friend as kids. We WanNa feel accepted. We want to have that friendship. You want to feel that you love as a property, but the fact that every time I made a friend, either he would move to a different city or I would move schools and I. Don't know I'm still discovering how that has me long, but how did that? You, don't affect you. Know for sure it really did. It created to beliefs that I took with me into my adult life, and so one of those. Relationships end and so. I just didn't fully appreciate the currency of a rich relationship in rich friendship, and what that meant and certainly had some. as I went you know as I grew up in I still remember this guy comes to mind Jason. Who is my best friend? When we lived through Japan, we stayed touch for years afterwards when his family moved to Virginia, moved North Carolina. But I just didn't appreciate that keeping someone in having a lifelong friend. was really something that I could have and. So that was one belief that just friendships and relationships ended I started carried. You know I've got great friends from high school still. is a long time, but the other believe really that it created was. When it came to romantic relationships, and so, if you have this dynamic that in some cases, relationships end well when it comes to romance, and you almost of have to go all in because you're trying to shore up this relationship before you get to the point where it's GonNa end. And so I became super romantic. I became a really romantic person. I wrote poems. I think when. Other people? In certainly later part of high school into college, discovering physical intimacy I was still kind of looking at romantic. But that you know those those two beliefs I really took with me through big part, my dot life, too I think was only through. Kenner the last you know five or six years that I really awoke to them and realized the power they'd have of me and was able to let them go. Thanks Norfolk shedding. It's interesting how one incident or two incidents. Are you know these things that happen to ourselves? Student Avenue Affect Different aspects of our life, even as we're adults, and only when we sort of. DIG The dive to shine the light on those parts of is which are now in the dock realize. Wow, that that did affect me right, so thanks a lot for sharing now your father and your brother will vote Marines right so what ruled deeply as you're growing up in your decisions, especially as far as the Yeah, you know it's it's funny. It was very creative growing up and I think that was part of the. Reality of not having consistent friend that I went from Grade School. All the way up to high school with I got really creative, so I wrote. I I drew I was very artistic. And in high school actually got something published You know a piece of A. Short story published honorable mention in a magazine nationally. I just thought that everybody can do that I just I didn't realize that it was. The writing was something that I just excel that a little bit so? When it came time to look at life after high school I remember my my dad's down. He said listen. You will pay for part of you're going to pay for the other half and. Get naked scholarship that's great. If not you might look at ROTC and join the military and. I guess one of the beliefs that I I grew up with it mentioned. Was I learned to hate the marine? Corps Because I blame them for always moving around and so. I thought. Okay, if I have to do military scholarship. I'm going to do that, but I'm not going to join the marines because no and. And so and there wasn't any you know. My Dad didn't push me. My brother was kind of going down that path as well. And I got into college and I was going to go into the. and. So every semester when you do ROTC program. You have to do a class for ROTC. And, so the class is like naval weapons system, so it's Kinda like missiles and stuff. It's really cool and second semester. Its naval like engineering like the actual ships engineering, and my mind is a liberal arts mind, and so I started him mechanical engineering just GonNa blacked out. Going to be good. I get to the grains. And so, that's kind of the pathway that took me down. That was you know I know the Maria familiar with them I grew up in the Marine Corps and so that was the path I decided to say.

Managing Grief and Anxiety in Difficult Times With Aneesh Chaudhry

"It's safe to say that. At any given time, everyone is going through something in their lives, but rarely do we have a situation where so many people are collectively going through such a trying time. To good news is, we're going to get through this and we can use this time to build new habits and be stronger than before. This week's guest is here to talk about how to manage our energy and deal with such negative emotions as grief loss anxiety. Chowdhry is founder of the brain health clinic soul, physio lifestyle where he works with a team of doctors, psychologists and other healthcare professionals take a whole body approach to wellness. He's here to talk about what he's seen. And what practices we all can use to stay mentally and physically fit during this time. A niche welcome to happy now. Thank you so much for having me. I'm excited to be here. Yeah, I'm excited to talk to you. Because we are in a time of very rapid change, you know for the past few weeks. A lot of our podcasts have dealt with what people are doing as their quarantine during lockdown, but you're now. We're starting to open up yet. We still see a lot of uncertainty so. To start things off. Can you talk about some of the tips you might offer for managing kind of uncertainty were dealing with right now. The biggest piece of advice giving clients a lot of other people I've spoken to on different podcast. Enemies been doing is. To be in a place of acceptance and when I say sapped, accepting the fact that there is a lot of different things that we can't change, that are happening in the world, and not to say they're not a big deal to minimize it, but for our own sake, our own well-being stressing out of. These things that we may controls ultimate can be counterproductive for our own help our wellbeing and it's really important being catered to that and coming to a place of. Understanding that you know it's really really vital that we use our resources in terms of our time, our energy to focus on being able to rebuild our lives to whatever degree that been affected by this whole pandemic. Glad. You brought that up. Because acceptance is something that I've really been doing a meditation on most of last couple of weeks, and it doesn't mean resignation. Some people feel like if I accepted then. That's kind of resignation. Can you talk about what acceptance does for us? We're acceptance does is a free space in your mind in your spirit to be able to focus on the things that really are going to make a positive impact on life was ultimately when you're in a place of fighting things, you can't control and exerting energy to trying to change things that you simply don't have control over I. Don't WanNa say the word waste, but I guess in a way it is going to be a waste of our resources because I mean you know people talk so much about time out front whose time one concept I really liked to talk about introduce of maybe even to some people. Listening is the concept of energy management. Would, that is really really thinking about Okinawa, only how am I spending my time, but how is my mind engaged am I truly fully present what I'm doing or my worried anxious. Ignore what happened yesterday? What could happen? Because when you spend time thinking about the past or worrying about the future that drains a significant amount of energy and being able to stay grounded in the present moment alway. Mindful place than us on a position where we can begin to analyze irrational standpoint, not from an emotional standpoint in terms of okay, here's. How say the pandemic has influenced when light ABC and here's what I can do? About how to solve that? I'm glad you brought that up because it gets difficult if you turn on the news, because even though they're saying Oh, hey were opening up a little, and it's getting better, but we can expect a second wave so i. hear a lot of people parodying that they're saying you know it's like hey. Things are getting better. They're like yeah, but this is coming, so would they are putting energy into yet? Don't get too comfortable. Don't like this too much because it's GonNa. Get again. And I think just inevitably when you have a quarantine of this degree, and yes, I mean that you can flatten the curve or save it when you do open up. The virus is still circulating so I. think that we will see more aces, but then at the same time this was part of the processed I mean I really had to come into a? A place of accepting that it's summer most troubling times I've seen in my life and I know I probably will see the duration of my life, but I've also use this time as a time to go inwards and really learn and spend time doing things that I wouldn't have time doing and I been in California. Say running my businesses like I normally would. And it's opened up opportunities to meet people with this new virtual platform that everyone's having to adopt in really becoming with the social distancing, really having utilized zoom, and whether it's with friends family business I've met more people over the past two months than I met my hordes light, just because of accessibility optimism as

A conversation about race, privilege and making space

"Watch a dot. Say Nin, hello, and welcome this unreserved on CBC Radio One I'm Rosanna dare child. In October of two thousand and eighteen I moderated, a panel called inside outside at six degrees held at the art gallery of Ontario. It's an event that invites authors, academics, politicians, and big thinkers together to discuss pressing issues. And Right, now there is one issue that has captured the world's attention. The death of George Floyd a forty six year, old, black man and in Minneapolis police officer now charged with second degree murder. His death was witnessed around the world and sparked support for the black lives matter movement with protests from Merika to Australia. We are at a turning point in our history, so we thought it was a perfect time to revisit this conversation. Today on unreserved. We're talking about power, privilege and asking. How willing are we to make meaningful change? Joining me on stage, our Alexis McGill Johnson of the perception institute. Is Your allure author speaker and Internet yeller not to know bed. National Inuit leader and president of new tap read Cana Tommy and Sassy assassin professor of Sociology at Columbia University. Okay so I'm afternoon. We're going to have a conversation around place. Power Privilege, who hasn't who doesn't and perhaps more importantly how we are shifting to create new spaces. I want to start with of course are beautiful panelists here? I want to ask you first of all to tell US share with us. Where you come from because as my elders teach, you cannot know where you're going until you know where you've come from. or at least that's what my mother would say when she sent me to the store. my first question to each of the panelists are what is the place that you come from? Perhaps we'll start with me. Thank you very much I guess I'm still trying to figure that one out. I. I thought I came from Canada. I was the young person and I'm not quite sure if that's the right. Way To think about where I'm from now. Nuts. which is. A region in new one of our four regions northern Labrador and we very recently got self-government, two thousand and five. But I grew up. There I also grew up in the United States I I grew up. Kind of between a lot of different worlds so I, Can i? Also say that I'm a global citizen as well so I am the national leader I am in Okinawa proud indigenous person. But it doesn't. Then, take back any of the other parts of me, that exist as well and I'm I'm comfortable insertive in that space, and I think that is sometimes confusing to the rest of the world that I have not indigenous ancestry as well that my mother is none dishes. That's fine and getting the acceptance from. Canada and North America that I can be indigenous, but I can also have non indigenous parts. That is a part of this power dynamic that I hope that we can discuss this afternoon about assertiveness in. Indigenous. Without the. The qualifiers that indigenous people put on us. And if we don't fit into those myriad of boxes than we somehow lose all of our rights altogether. And we will get into that because that is an interesting place of privilege to. TRY TO KICK doors. Down into so that we're GONNA. Wait to Alexa. So, we're my from. Kind of like to say I'm from a period of time. I was I was born in Nineteen, seventy two, which is important to me as a social identity really. but it's important for me. Because it was, it was halfway I was born kind of right in the middle of a post wave, second wave, feminism, and the Black Power Movement and my parents, both particularly my mother lived at the intersection of both of those movements growing up. She was incredibly active as a woman is. She, she had US marching in in our Shakey's an Afro puffs as as children I'm pretty sure I learned the words to. We shall overcome before I learned the US pledge of allegiance. My choice of professional careers always been trying to to understand interrogate these these. Frameworks power and Privilege Ed. I studied political science. Which I think is a study of power. But have found myself now consistently in these rooms, as one of few one of only, if not the only woman woman of Color, and so I've been this bridge I think kind of connecting. Connecting the dots in a lot of different iterations from a cultural perspective where I've worked with a number of artists and democratic organizations, organizing young people to the current work that we do have perception which is around translating the science of our brains and bodies understand difference in how we connect to each other in those ways.

Your hair looks awful. Go put on a hat. So this is what I hate that. Trav- your hair looks awful. Go put on ABC. Wait a minute make us on her. Might just relaying. What happened five minutes before play guy either way quarantines getting us? It's getting a lot of time spent together and you know we somewhat too much time. We're used to spending a lot of time together but court excuse me. Quarantine is a little bit of a different animal. I do not hate the hat. I hate this. You literally said I hate this head a little too flat for me but anyway regardless British Columbia and we love the breweries in British Columbia. Yes today this is part of our quarantine. Diaries session so you can watch us on. If you're watching it then you get to see that if you're listening on the podcast and you do want to see our faces our situation and see what had a might wear for the next one. You can go do our instagram at extra packing peanuts and check it out there. So these are shorter. Form unedited podcast. That we're putting in addition to a regular Tuesday longer form podcasts. So that you have more wanderlust more travel love in your ears during the quarantines as we all go a little bit stir quarantine that's like during the quarantine it is now. I think a proper now. I think it should be Catholic. Quarantine entreprenuering quarantine and so what we've been doing recently and what we're going to do today is our best of series and this is where we pick a destination today. British Columbia Heather has a few card down there. She mixes them up and then she asked us and we don't prep for this at all. What our best memories of this specific places so today. We're doing a whole province and it's GonNa be hard because we spent a lot of time in British Columbia and we've gone all around British Columbia. Obviously we spend a ton of time in Victoria. Think Hoover Islands part of British Columbia? Spending time in Vancouver. We've been up to whistler. We'd been out to the Okinawa Gin. So it's going to be hard to pick somewhere places but hey that's what happens. That's the tough job of being travel. Podcast SO WE HAVE DESTINATION. Diaries and we have one. I'm pretty sure on Vancouver so we don't have one. I think on the whole of British Columbia. So you'll be getting some new content here with this little mini series. And I guess we should just jump right in. Let's do it okay. The first card is oh how appropriate best during so. I've been thinking a lot about this. And she told me redoing British Columbia literary four minutes ago and there have been a lot of places that we've drank at Including Vancouver we one time. We're in Vancouver for twenty one days and I did twenty one breweries and twenty days and I was pregnant so I did zero breweries. I mean I went to them but yeah so and we've spent a lot of time in Victoria. And some great wineries out in the Okinawan and all but for me. I think it will come back to a beer. Coast Mountain honorable mention and because of the hat. Awesome little brewery up in squamish tackling games. Garmisch just south of whistler fun little place cool like everything wanting to bury small little joint. That heather actually stayed in the car because again. I think you're pregnant at that point and she took a nap. I just went in and had a little flight by myself. You know really neat. People could be the coast from the brewery. No but it's called coast to Coast Mountain. Which is also a weird name. My name like it's just a weird. You're just taking two words and putting them together but it works and I love the hat and I'd like to branding but my number one favorite. So it's not honorable mention. Okay right you told me that we could go longer than fifteen minutes. Because now we have a compressor so we can put it on. Igt No if you read our post from last week. But I had the hardest time trying to get our videos out because if you video over fifteen minutes you have to do it from your granddaughter and it has to be an MP anyway. It was a whole long saga. But I bought the software. Because what does one do? I mean we needed. We needed to get the videos to you. We needed to get the videos. You so then Heather told. I said we are GONNA be fifty minutes is going to be hard for British Columbia said. Oh no no we got we got the compressor we can do want so. My overall favorite drink is strathcona brewing in Vancouver for two reasons. One Strathcona brewing itself has really good beer. Super Cool brewery really hipster in in like a gentrifying neighborhood for sure but they also at the time we were there and I'm not sure if the guy still does this but there is a gypsy. Burr call who runs a Burri called superfly. Meaning he doesn't have his own brewery brews at Strathcona and comes up and bruised. They're apparently lives in a van. No joke down by a river and then comes up to strathcona debris here and there and this was two years ago so things could have could have changed this super flex beer is awesome so they sell super flex at Strathcona brewing and their beers incredible and then bring has their own beer and their beer is really good too so those my if you want the best drink we've had in British Columbia head to Strathcona brewing. Try and try to get your hands on superfly which you can get in grocery stores and convenience stores to

"And Johnson interruption and says. I'm not interested in what the Japanese one I wanted to know what they're going to give. And Nixon there is quite that dramatic moment at the same thing is what is about textile. You know chew. We're going to give him the iron back chill. We're going to take a weapons of but hey I want the credit were and be I want something on textiles and return and I know that that we can't have that week out so we can't do it for administered so in both situations the president and the Prime Minister WanNa do it together and they have to set it up so they know it's GonNa work because they can't wait so they get there. They're trying to work out. You know communicate wagons so Saito in sixty seven needs to send somebody walk I. Zoom is former professor at the National Defense University known to be very conservative ke-ching out of private Japanese University Mikio region and absorb prominent defense intellectual but a very conservative so even though people in the United States think of Okinawa reversion. As sort of a thing showers pushing for the Japanese. It was a very conservative vision. And Sacco come to trust him As somebody who understood Japan was Russell was his sons. God flung what was very close to Mansfield So he was a very serious very thoughtful guy who inspired confidence and trust and so when in the Johnson administration that was despite over was literally about how to translate several several years into Japanese. No was it that made two or three or seven to ten and you know the words in Japanese. There's no several anyway. Sato needed a commitment that it would happen before. Nineteen seventy and the judge in administration was ready to begin negotiations to accept the principle that reversion could recur without the. Glue skied but not prepared to commit to a date because it didn't know whether we can reach agreement on the status of NASA's eighth reversion discuss that the liberally pencilling because it was too much to get to agree to so in both cases in the second one with easy 'cause he went up the first on Santo at the very last minute after the foreign ministry came back and said we can't get language you want him to communicate In sixty seven and sixty nine they said the Nixon administration will tell us nothing about taking the nuclear weapons out. They all say the president will discuss that with you when you come. And so in both cases he needed to find a way to get around that and having said that walk zooming sixty seven was quite natural. Send him six nine. I should warn listeners. By the way whenever I un Mute my microphone there will be enormous background. Noise of my three children Moore I wanted to ask about just one. More thing about walk is zooming because you remain calm. You remained friends for quite a long time after this goes this. It seems to me that it's such an interesting aspect of where Japan is in the nineteen sixties. Because my sense is there weren't a lot of people like him who were Japanese who spoke excellent English. Who you know had spent time in the United States. Because you know the war would you know is is is just twenty years prior at this point and so you know. He's quite young but that in part reflects the fact that he has this kind of new generation of scholars. And he's kind of the leading one. I I always find that really interesting as a historical timepiece because of course now there are lots of Japanese academics. Speak English and you know lots of people who can see Roy but I came in in sixty sixty three. I talked to every Japanese who thought about or knew anything about nuclear weapons strategy issues and it would probably twelve you know by generous definition of them and five of them worked with weapons. Zuni work with a man named Saiki was the commodore at the University in Ramble Special Unit. And then they were couple people at universities so they were not many choices when he wanted to do so in some of your writings you talk a lot about the process of softening the joint chiefs up in order to be able to accept reversion and then withdrawal of the nuclear weapons. And does that happen? Mostly in the Johnson administration mostly in the Nixon administration. What would happen Johnson ministrations? Getting them understand that it sure would be better to have free use of the bases. But the risk the Ryan stated in Nineteen Seventy. There could well be riots. That would end. The treaty ran the bases were in the special level that we had and that therefore that was the trade off. Nobody was saying if we could do it. We WanNA keep basis and that took place in sixty seven and sixty six but mainly in sixty seven meeting up to the by the summit the chief physician choose never agree they always say of course we preferred this. But if it's right that we have to do this. We're prepared to agree to the principle that we will return. We will give up sovereignty over the basis but maintain the basis and then they said the memo to the Secretary of defense saying The memo to the president should say we should do this with the understanding that we will insist upon free right to conduct combat operations from Okinawa and right to keep nuclear weapons on Okinawa as part of the negotiations with homeland. Look so that's where the chiefs were at sixty seven. No more sky but freedom to conduct bombing raids from Okinawa to keep nuclear weapons. I got back merit to agree that we would not say that. Not because we had not not in favor of it but because we had decided and it which to beating slide Dan in sixty nine with Nixon they agreed describing my memoirs seem meeting which is real the chairman of the Joint Chiefs says. Of course we'd like to keep nuclear weapons there but if they have to be removed we need time to do it and there will be some administrative inconvenience which is the best sentences. I heard anybody say 'cause everybody understood without mentioning some administrative inconvenience i. It's actually one of the things. I emphasize in the classes. That there is you. There is this steady process of pushing the joint chiefs not to just say abstractly that the world is going to end but to specify what the cost of reversion and then removing the weapons going to be and once you start to go down that path and I think you tell this story which i. I'm I'm hoping hoping you'll you`ll. You'll tell again and when you do that iterative process of forcing people to be specific about what the actual cost is. Then suddenly it's not the world ending. Its administrative inconvenience And so we. I try to do that. Get them off nuclear weapons in in nineteen sixty eight that last year the jetsons duration 'cause McNamara weeds and I knew McNamara saying we would win this fight because Mac McNamara had did not believe in utility weapons and nuclear weapons were put on Opo in the Eisenhower Administration Ran. The doctrine was that nuclear weapons went everywhere. Troops went and the troops were equipped with nuclear weapons. Those whether normal weapons that they were equipped with so we had forces on Okinawa and they came with nuclear weapons. Nobody ever had a debate about whether we really needed them there with the locations. Which Pan was they were just there? And when McNamara came in at a million fights with cheese and never had a fight with them about nuclear weapons in Asia he did about nuclear weapons in Europe but never on Asia and his as you and I have discussed I've been selling. I did an irradiated presses which was trying to take the nuclear weapons out of all of Asia. That was the first time the chiefs choice too early. And there's nothing to articulate. I mean once you say what you have you know. We had surfaced all. This is now because we had surface to air missiles nuclear warheads there on the assumption if the Chinese or the Russians tried to bomb. Okinawa would fire a nuclear weapon to destroy an airplane. That was not going to happen. And so there was no. We've had an inconclusive debate with them At the in sixty eight because Clifford Nitsa when not as committed as macnamara wedged? And we didn't have the setup. There was no decision to be made so on to get them to be redone. In in the Nixon administration. You ended up having to do it twice. Yeah we never finished it in the Johnson ministration because there was no. It's very hard to get anybody to do anything when there isn't a vet and the summit with sixty seven and then sixty eight. I did this exchange which I have with them saying specify each nuclear weapon. That's there what is he used for. What is the alternative way to deploy that? What military plans if any include using these nuclear weapons and so Eventually gave they never want to say.

"We don't have Aaron or we have more Halprin pay mort. How would you introduce yourself? I would say your mentor and one of the most important figures in my career and the problem is you're famous for like three things. So which would you emphasize what was only? It's not doing any kissing. I don't care which I mentioned that every semester in class I used to go around saying I did. Other things. Effect on William Buckley's program. Many years ago he actually said helping is often introduced as having sued Henry Kissinger. But he's actually done many other important things so I guess what I would say I would I would say for listeners. Is You've had an extraordinarily long career you started. How old were you when you and Tom. Shelling wrote? Strategy and arms control. We've nineteen sixty and I was born in Nineteen thirty eight. Yeah so you you very productive. You left Harvard to go to the Johnson Administration. Which is how you end up knowing a little bit about the subject. We're GONNA talk about today. Which is the reversion of Okinawa? You are in the Nixon administration and resign. But I work on Okinawa in Nixon administration as much as well as we worked on. I don't think I caught that. Quite right so what is critical to the story. And then after that You Henry Kissinger for wiretapping. Your phone and your the director of the ACLU. I run the Washington Washington National Office for. I was there for eighteen years. I think that's the period in which I got the photograph you with the pipe. When did you give up the pipe? I don't even remember it so long ago. I think like seventy all right well. So the thing that we're GonNa talk about today is Okinawa because I teach a class on national security decision making and one of the central case studies is the decision of the Nixon administration to give Okinawa back to the Japanese but to do so without nuclear weapons and so you are intimately involved in the process that leads to the reversion of Okinawa without nuclear weapons their withdrawal and some of the more interesting bureaucratic shenanigans. I have ever seen in a case study. So actually it's happened. The Johnson administration enhancing the Nixon. Okay well so how does it start? Well it's the IT started for me in a coffee shop in Tokyo in nineteen sixty three and it was with K Walk Zoom e who is then not a very well known young professor and the staff of the National Defense University and I was there to talk about the implications for Asian security of the Chinese nuclear capability so we wrote a book about China in the ball and so I was asking him and other Japanese whether they worried about a Chinese nuclear came. And why Jimmy's answer which was similar to many other people was. We're not really worried about that. As long as we have the alliance with the United States because we think he will protect us. Even China gets nuclear weapons. We're worried about is whether we can sustain the alliance and threats. The Wyans is the opposition of the Socialists and other leftists in Japan to the wise. Because they want you to be an entirely peaceful nation without any though its reliance and the thing they will use to force a debate on the alliance and maybe the end of the lines is the American occupation of okay. Now in seventy neither country. Kim withdrew from the security treaty. And what they said and other said if the United States is not agreed to give back open our by nine hundred seventy there will be riots in Japan which could read to the end of the alliance or at the very least. The Japanese government insisting on the return of Okinawa and therefore recurring without any reparations. Without any date so we need to find a way to give back our before. Nine hundred seventy yet so just for listeners to try to frame this you know. I think people don't always remember that after World War Two. The United States retained control of Okinawa for Well up until this period and you know I mean the joke I always tell folks and classes like why why why are like why are we controlling Okinawa? Their NUCLEAR WEAPONS. There and the answer is because we want it fair and square When you have to give it back right. Those were the days when countries start if they conquered something in a way they could keep. The Post will create injecting rejected that crevice And we in fact I in the peace treaty with Japan. To recognize something residual Javanese which meant someday we would return the island to Japan and we can see that it was Japanese territory not Chinese territory. Not An independent country but it was part of Japan and someday we view back where we intended to be you know long after the collapse of the Soviet Union so just to fit for I come into the Pentagon in sixty six interested in working on the issue and by coincidence I suppose I get called the first day on my job into the office of the principal. Deputy Assistant Secretary Atom Bomb. Alinsky says there's a Task Force on Okinawa reversion issues. And we want you to represent the task force and you should know that all I am. This Mac Mirror agree with swimmer. Best Russia that we need to give it back and give it back before the end of the decade. So your job is to do and the next day you'll N. T. Wolves into my office with K. Walkout zooming introduces me. Not knowing that I know and says Miss mcmurray has agreed to give him an interview You're you're at the staff the interview and so I started new Gluck. Zum Yet to be which helped him get the pre the prestige which eventually leads to 'em being the chief negotiator for the Japanese and this and I saw working on this task force and I have a conversation with a naval officer involved in Okinawa to find out. What's going on so I say to him. Can you describe for me? The American military bases on Okinawa. And he says we have no military bases open now and I say ready mean he says Okinawa is a military base. I meant that literally and I say but there's million Japanese on the island and he says well that's an administrative convenience but we work around and it turns out that is exactly the way they thought about it. This was the whole island was treated as if it was four six with the US military things and it just happened to be people living on the base. They happen to be Japanese but they got good soon. The United States duty free they pay tariffs of duty from Japan. The Americans ran the public school system. It was American military banks. Which have it can be a Jackie silent and then I said well. When are you planning to give it back? And he said when the sky is blue and I said what does that mean and he said when there are no more security threats in Asia has wellness are security threats in Asia We have maintained the island. We estimate aiming under control so there were two entirely separate obstacle overcome. Each is difficult is the other one was that we would give it back And accept limits on the use of the basis particularly combat operations. And the second is it. We pick up weapons. Okay I see so in in class we only really talk about overcoming the second obstacle. How long does it take to really overcome the first obstacle and then get in a position where we know the going back teasing? It's it comes into Sato summits. It's always the prime minister I will comes at sixty five and Lyndon Johnson says to him. We'll give Okinawa back when the skies were so. That's starting absolute sat. The probe Johnson said there is nothing going to happen here on this. We are keeping it until not security sixty seven this Johnson at the summit. They agreed to begin negotiations. Seeking it early return of Okinawa. So that's done. In the Johnson. Ministration are subject to agreement on the conditions of rivers and then Nixon agrees to homeland level for the basis. And then to take Luke we might consider so it comes in those two in those two and I was deeply involved both So there too well one thing I want to ask about is to talk a little bit about Wakai. Zuni himself. Because I think that that's an interesting story about where Japan was in this era in in the sense that he is such an unusual figure to play such an important role and he ends up playing such a strange role. Including as what Mr Yoshida at the end right in when he was using his pseudonym and so I wonder if you could talk a little bit about how why he ends up playing like who he is what his personality is like in how he ends up playing this role. Because it's I think most listeners are going to imagine that there's just like a foreign ministry official who is told to do this but instead they reach out and grab this academic well. It's because in both cases before administrator channel fails and it fails because both Johnson and Nixon want to click this deal in part because they went credit for it put in part because they both want substantial economic concessions from the Japanese turn. Something that's very odd negotiate through a foreign ministry neither Johnson. The Nixon wanted to do that because they want to be the one that gets the credit from side though they WANNA be they. WanNa make deal because they know that the accuracy doesn't care when we when Johnson has meeting on Okinawa reversion. They come in is a memo about possible terms of homeland and Russ thoughts explaining Johnson..

Geometry-Aware Neural Rendering with Josh Tobin

"Art Everyone I am here in Vancouver at nerves. Twenty nine thousand nine hundred and I've got the pleasure being seated with Josh Tobin. Josh is a former research scientist at open. Ai and a co organizer of full deep learning Josh. Welcome to the trauma add podcasts. Thanks happy to be here awesome. So let's maybe jump into a little bit of your background. You spend some time at opening I and you did your PhD at Berkeley advised by Peter. Bill who's been on the podcast before? Yeah so I got into the field about four years ago then really. I started at Berkeley in the applied program. And then You know kind of on women took a class with Professor reveal who ended up becoming my adviser and I was just kind of blown away by the potential of Ai to make robotics work better and so through that. I ended up working with Peter and spending a bunch of time at opening. I and so. What are you currently up to yes. I left opening a few months ago and in the process of exploring kind of what's dive into next figuring out what's next yeah exactly. Nice Nice And so you're talk here actually later. This afternoon is on geometry aware neuro rendering. What's right what's that? Is that something you worked on? Ed Open or kind of personal interests. Yeah that's something I worked on at Okinawa. I also through like during my PhD at Berkeley Kind of While I was spending time in both places okay And so the kind of the core problem that I'm working on there is You know how do we look in robotics? In order to to act. Robots need to. I understand what's happening in the world and so typically the way that you'll do that in robotics is you'll take your sensor observations about the world and you'll map them to some way of representing the state of the world so where all the objects what poses are they in what configuration is the robot in etc but the challenge. Is that as you move to? More and more complex scenes than it becomes hard to write down a concrete representation of the state of the world. Nam The kind of the focus of this work is on implicit understanding. So can we. Can we take some sensor observations about a scene and then use that to create a representation of the world that Kind of implicit Lee has an understanding. What's happening the scene? And so what's Can you be more concrete than that or is there an example that That you describe that yeah absolutely so that concrete in the way that you formulate. The problem is You take one or more. Observations of the scene so think about cameras imaging the same scene from different viewpoints. And then you train a model and the goal. That model is to give him some arbitrary other viewpoint on that could be any other viewpoint of the scene. The models goal is to render what it thinks. The scene looks like from that viewpoint And so the industry if they can do that than it has an accurate kind of implied or implicit representation of what's happening in the the tuition rates if If the model can do that task well. It has to have some sort of representation internally. That understands what's going on in the scene practically when you do this academy cameras. Are we talking about yeah? It's A. It's a handful. I mean it's The the formulation can really extent any number In practice I usually used three cameras to image the scene. And then the fourth point is the one that the the model is trying to predict. That is the the neuro rendering part of the the talk. The geometry aware implies that it's kind of a model based approach in some sense. Yeah I mean so. The geometry aware part is the kind of the inspiration for the work that I did And what I built on this paper from deep mind call Geeky one Genitive query networks. Okay and so the the extension that I added to. That is the geometry aware part refers to is if you if you know The geometry of the scene so where the cameras are relative to one another than that allows you to constrain the process of of searching what pixels are most relevant to rendering a particular Pixel So you know if you're rendering a particular viewpoint and you WanNa know you know. Okay what should I imaging? This pixel somewhere in the the image that I'm wondering then you want to do. Is You want to go back. And Look at all the images that you've been giving US context and sort of search over those images for relevant information and if it turns out to be used geometry of the scene this thing from classical computer vision called the people are geometry then you can constrain that search to a line in each of the context viewpoints and so maybe as context kind of walk us through G. Qn and what that paper is talking about. Yeah so they're taking this problem of neural rendering rate so looking at looking at a scene for multiple points in rendering from an arbitrary other viewpoint and then they set up a model structure in the with that model structure works is basically an encoder decoder architecture. So the encoder takes each of the viewpoints and maps them through accomplish on their own network independently and so then you representation for each of those points. Those representations are summed and you get sort one representation for the entire scene. So that's kind of the encoder part like element wiser caffeinated. Yes some element wise. Okay Yeah So. Then you take that that representation for the scene. And he passed to the decoder And then the decoder shop is to take that representation and sort of go through this multi step process. Turn it into the what. He thinks the image from that viewpoint should look like okay and is there any particular intuition for the element wise some versus keeping everything around? You know I think the main intuition is that you want it to be You don't want to depend on the order that you present the Cameron So you can candidate than order matters. Some it doesn't okay. And so they they're results. Were purely based on this Just the camera angles in the kind of encoder decoder architecture. And so that when you added was a constraint to the search base that is based on what we know about the geometry. Epa people urgency polar geometry. So so so. Basically the the contribution of paper is You know there's this sort of bottleneck in the formulation where you know you've taken the encoder and that's giving you Representation of the scene and then pass that to a decoder. But what we do instead is Instead of having this representation of the scene instead we haven't attention mechanism. Is that attention? Mechanism allows you to when you're generating a new image to attend over all the permission in the in the representations at the context images that you've been given in the way that attention mechanism works is by taking advantage of this this sort of fact of three geometry called the the The geometry is calling it and attention. Mechanism is it. Is it like attention like or is it implemented the way attention is often implemented in these kinds of networks? Yeah so it's it's implemented exactly like what kind of like a scale products attention but the way that you have to do that is you know you have for every pixel. You're searching over a line. You need to create unique to construct the right br representation so that you can do attention in the normal way.

All About Lectins and Other Fun Facts

"In is actually one of the major key inflammatory things so when people talk talk about Gluten Right Electon is actually one of the thing and gluten makes the inflammatory response happened body. The gluten activator the election. Alexa like The way the dude explain it is like when you're when you get a splinter in your skin gets red bodies having like an anti inflammatory reaction electons or what do that internally internally okay so everybody suggests the main player in this right not true. That was the brain game changer from this dude. Dr Gunn got injury in the ultra. podcast anyway welcome to the PODCAST. Everybody so wait Chris. I'm pulling it up just to like not to play for you. What is where okay? It's all gluten contain Leptin. Yes so like if if you are if you need to avoid Latin whole new world gluten is not the answer so okay how. How do you avoid electing that? Is You do your best of luck. And so part of what blew my mind in this podcast. Is that like. There's a many people who go on a gluten free diet who actually absorbed and bring in more electins than if they were to just eat bread in moderation. What are the visualize electon? Oh man some of the vehicles that you would not suspect. ACT The skin on almonds so Marcona almonds Is it a fancy ones these reality from Italy just like de skinned but like so the skin get on almonds so there's people who like like legumes in general but not if so he's like but beans are actually good if you you have them either pressure cooked or you get a certain brand or you soak them really well for a long time because it's in the skin in the breakdown of the beans the elections come out and then you actually only get the goods from it. It was a very gnarly brain changer for me that after. I'M GONNA listen to multiple times through but I got the cookbook. It's called the plant. Oh and he did. A book called the plant paradox and it was essentially like this dude Dr Gunnery who happens to not be an adventist but work the Loma Linda System. which is like a really really high medical system interested in and he got on the board one of the only non adventist? He's so he doesn't doesn't have to be a believer. Yeah totally in. That doesn't happen often with that group. But he studies the blue zones pretty big time blue zones very all who don't know or the longest living zones in in the world like Okinawa area is one of them and then somewhere in the Mediterranean Mediterranean areas of mentoring. He's a big time proponent of even though there's not that exists exact one but he's like one of his statements is food exists. Good Clean Olive oil in your body because of polyphenols and they just like opened up at this whole interesting world where it's like. There's no perfect answer. The first half of the podcast is all what you shouldn't eat in the second half is things that you can eat okay. What's a few things that you shouldn't eat? That seemed like counter oftentimes actually like like I said he wasn't. I can't remember because it's been a week now. And we jumped in this podcast on the fly because Chris looked at my lunch and he's all right. What is that really burners on? You Know No. It's good but the biggest biggest one that stuck out to me whereas like hey actually bred by itself might not be as betty so there's people who are far more sick gluten free diet or a Vegan Diet because says okay like tomatoes super high electons was another one he said. Is that a nightshade thing. Maybe anything with seeds. That's it's like a fruit. He said. Okay it's another thing game change your mind blower. He's juicing is a surefire way to actually get fat. Well for sure. Sure yes but he said you WANNA use it right juice. It throw a juice away and pull all the pulp out any only the pulp. That's where all the goods are. Oh ooh so. It's getting all the good like fiber and all the fiber reverse juicing and the and and polyphenols which are pretty high. So it's like all things that happened in certain plants. Most most lettuces have more electons than you might realize. He said to stick stick to the group like fruit and Radicchio and those ones that are like more bitter Kale can Michael. I think I can't remember. I think he said Kale's pretty good but even so like basically what they do is they make your body inflame in some way or another. That was interesting. He said also. Like if you want. You'RE GONNA hate this one as a Paleo person. But he's like if I wanted to get rid of something like the people overeat it's proteins or protein is like one of the main things in aging us. Yes yeah you know. It's interesting that that is dead on. Because I think this is where most people get Paleo wrong right at the actual actual like since the beginning of the Paleo Diet now. I can't even remember who wrote the original book about it. But most literature revolving around Paleo actually advocates for just moderate protein. Yeah but I think that thirty grams a day I think because of the circles locals that those people run in which it happens to be tied into a fitness and a lot of cases right and a lot of lifting people over eat protein because they see it as a source for like quote unquote gains or big. Yeah or it's an easy win that fits into that Like the Paleo Vai. I believe it's just really easy for me to go and eat some protein and and feel like it's good for me but even like Like Mark Mark Sisson right. Who did did marks daily apple the blog and then now as one of the bigger advocates for Kito agrees that in terms of longevity eh lifespan and overall health? It's probably wise to not just with protein but caloric load overall like eat as little as possible caloric while being able to you know to function the way we need to function and I think it gets twisted because you take community. That's like a fitness base community. They would listen to that. And there are just like the probably working out too much and partner requiring like a ton of calories to do what they're doing and then even people who are moderately affiliated with the community. You're like Oh yeah this is healthy. Eat this like one. Gram of protein. Gene per pound of lean body has been like the standard since the bodybuilding times like n beyond and for actual athletes people would take it even further further but yeah for health probably not right and you do have to adjust based on how much you do fitness and exercise. He said the average person twenty to thirty thirty grams tops a day. And most people don't know that your internal organs in your stomach sheds and you reabsorb like twenty grams of protein from your stomach every single day. Oh Yeah you were dropping that knowledge super weird. That's really
