A highlight from An Old Womans Laughter
"Welcome to Gospel in Life. Throughout the Bible, there are signs that point us to the gospel. Today, Tim Keller is looking at how we can discover them and what they teach us. The passage on which the teachings base is found in your bulletin. Let me read it to you. Genesis 21, verses one to seven. Now the Lord was gracious to Sarah, as he had said. And the Lord did for Sarah what he had promised. Sarah became pregnant and bore a son to Abraham in his old age. At the very time God had promised him, Abraham gave the name Isaac to the son Sarah bore him. And when his son Isaac was eight days old, Abraham circumcised him as God had commanded him. Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him. And Sarah said, God has brought me laughter. And everyone who hears about this will laugh with me. And she added, who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? Yet I have borne him a son in his old age. This is God's word. Why, in these morning services here in the fall, are we rummaging around in documents that are so ancient that they're called the Old Testament? I mean, how relevant is that? Very relevant. My wife, Kathy, tore out an article for me out of Mademoiselle Magazine, September 97. Very up to date. And surprising article, because it was by Naomi Wolf, who's a very sharp and pretty well known feminist author. And the title of the article is, Coming Out for God, subtitle, OK, I Pray, So Why Do I Feel So Funny Talking About It? And in the article, she basically says that she has come into a spiritual search. She has decided there's got to be more. And she is looking for God, and she's searching for God, and she's searching for spirituality. And at one point, she says, it's really all coming down to this. And she's not saying she arrived, but this is what she says she's coming down to. She says, beyond it all, I have the increasingly pressing question. This is the increasingly pressing question. What the heck does God want me to do, and how do I figure it out? What does God want me to do, and how do I figure it out? And when you ask the question, how do you figure out what God wants of me, that's the question of sources. Where do I go to find out what God's will is? And really, classically, there's really only two basic answers over the years. The one answer is look outside to some authoritative text, to some authoritative resource. Look outside to the objective. And on the other hand, the other kind of answer has been, well, you look inside. You look to the inner light. You look to the subjective. You look to your heart. You look to your experience. Now, the wonderful thing about the Old Testament that really needs to be understood, besides the fact that it's a book that's considered holy by Jews and Christians and Muslims, is with the Old Testament, you don't have to choose. What's great about the Old Testament is you have authoritative theological teaching, but it's always teaching in the form of stories, always teaching in the form of real human experiences. So last week, we looked at the existential despair of the teacher in Ecclesiastes. This week, we look at laughter. We will look at bitterness. You look at real human experiences, and the Old Testament says in those real human experiences, you've got pointers to God. You've got clues to God, but by going to the Old Testament, you not only look at human experience, you also do it in a way that people have been going to for years through the centuries, the Old Testament. Instead of being self -accredited, instead of just saying, well, I've looked at my heart, now I know what God wants, you're looking into the human heart, into human experience, and therefore into your own experience, but in the Old Testament, a place where millions of people over the centuries have found God. And that way, you can trust, so you don't have to choose, and that's why we're going to these great accounts. Now, in this account, we are looking at a particular experience, and that is a woman laughing because her only child has been born, but it's an incredibly old woman we have here. We have a woman who's 90 years old here, and we're told in the Bible that this laughter is a clue to who God is and what He's done, and how do you find Him? The reason that I read this little section, which many of you may not have even ever heard, even though you may have heard the story of Abraham and Sarah, is I think this is the fulcrum. This is actually the midpoint. This is actually the key, because all of Abraham and Sarah's life and all the fascinating incidents can all be understood in terms of the name of their son, because the word Isaac means laughter, means laughter. God has brought me laughter, and all who hear will laugh with me, and you can understand all of their life, and actually I think eventually you'll be able to understand all of your life, through the word yisak, Isaac, laughter, because there's been three kinds of laughter. If you read the story of Abraham and Isaac, there's three kinds of laughter, and only the last one is the best. They had to go through two other kinds to get to the third. What are these three kinds of laughter? First of all, first you see in the history of Abraham and Sarah, you see the laughter of scoffing, the laughter of disbelief, the shallow laughter of disbelief. If you go way back into the passage, go deep, you'll see back in Genesis 12, God comes to Abraham and says, I'm going to give you a son. A son will be born to you through Sarah, and through that son you will have a descent, a group of descendants will become a great nation, and through that nation, all the nations of the world will be blessed.

A highlight from SBF Trial, Day 1: Possible Witnesses Include FTX Insiders, Big Names in Crypto, and SBFs Family
"Hi everyone, Laura here. Tuesday, October 3rd was the first day of the criminal trial of the United States against Sam Bankman -Fried. Unchained will be bringing you quick recaps of each day of the trial, and you can find our coverage not just on the podcast and on video, but also in our newsletter and on our website. Before the proceedings, Bankman -Fried sat with counsel on either side, noticeably thinner than he had looked previously, and his hair recently shorn, so his curls seemed less unkempt than his signature look. He was also noticeably less jittery than normal. I did not see him shake his leg at all. He had a laptop and sometimes appeared to be scrolling via the trackpad. At one point, Judge Kaplan addressed SPF directly and said, quote, Mr. Bankman -Fried, I want to make sure this is something that you understand. You have the right to testify in your own defense in this case, and the decision as to whether or not you testify is the decision solely for you. You are entitled to have your counsel's best advice on whether they think it is wise or potentially advantageous or not advantageous for you to testify, but they can't make the decision for you. It is your call. While the defense has not yet indicated whether Bankman -Fried will testify, he has gone against most legal advice thus far and given numerous media interviews about what happened at FTX. We'll see whether he continues to be as loquacious under oath. Just after this, the government put on the record whether or not a plea offer had ever existed and said, quote, The government early on in the case, after the case was charged, raised the question of whether the parties should engage in plea discussions, and the answer was no, meaning there were no discussions about a plea and the government never made any plea offers. For those of you who listened to the Tuesday episode with Kayvon Sedeghi and Samson Enzer, this answers one of the questions that I've had ever since Caroline Ellison, Gary Wong, and Nishad Singh all pleaded guilty. Why it was that this case went to trial rather than ending in a plea deal. During this period before the jury selection process, the government mentioned that it wanted to ask whether jurors had seen one specific pre -trial news story, which they called, quote, The CBS Special, and which was later revealed to be the 60 Minutes interview with author Michael Lewis, which aired Sunday and has been seen as somewhat sympathetic to Bankman Fried. Once the proceedings got going, the theme for day one was what recent Unchained guest Samson Enzer mentioned, jury deselection. The judge posed round after round of questions to prospective jurors meant to weed out those who either had conflicts preventing them from serving or who for reasons pertaining to their professional position, personal experience, or other factors could not remain impartial. This process did create moments of hilarity, at least for the reporters in the press room. For instance, one prospective juror said that he was currently unemployed and that his lack of income plus a six -week delay in his job search would be a hardship. Judge Kaplan asked him what he did for a living and he responded, Commodities traitor. Judge Kaplan himself was both firm about the purpose of the trial and the duty of the jurors while also exhibiting both patience and a wry sense of humor. A prospective juror who said she could not participate because she was scheduled to fly to Maui before the trial's projected end ended up admitting that she was going to be in Maui for six months because she lives there half the year. Judge Kaplan asked her if she could just delay a week. Numerous jurors had already heard about or read about FTX. One potential juror works at Insight Partners, a VC firm that had invested in FTX and Alameda. Another said he had processed claims for the victims of Bernie Madoff and numerous others said that they had invested in crypto and all of those said that they had lost money in it, including a man who said his twin brother had nearly been financially ruined from those losses. The government read aloud a long list of potential witnesses for both the defense and the prosecution to prevent any jurors with conflicts or ties relating to those people or organizations. Aside from one of the predictable names, such as Caroline Ellison, Gary Wong, and Hishan Singh, some other FTX executives named included Ryan Miller, Ramnik Arora, Constance Wong, Dan Friedberg, and Sam Tribuco, while other names and organizations known in the crypto world included Anthony Scaramucci, Zach Prince, Genesis, Paradigm, Sequoia, Layer Zero, and Ribbit Capital. SPF's parents and brother were also named. The day ended with 50 remaining possible jurors. On Wednesday, Judge Kaplan will narrow it down to 12 jurors with 6 alternates, and we should see opening statements in both sides, with the government projecting its opening to be 25 -30 minutes and the defense 35 -40 minutes. More to come tomorrow.

The Courageous Mary T. Shares Her Battle with Hair Loss
"We also are discussing the topic of hair loss. And we have with us someone who has been courageously fighting hair loss and her name is Mary T. And Mary, we want to welcome you to the Hair Radio Broadcast Network today. Thank you. Glad to be a part. Thank you very much. Now let's just jump in Mary. Tell us a little bit about yourself. Where are you from? Now I've been living in California for the past 40 plus years. I'm originally from Arkansas. I started dealing with hair loss in California probably about 10, 12 years ago. Tell us about that. So when you say you were dealing with hair loss, tell us what you mean. Well, at first I got something like, it was almost like a pimple in the top of my head. As I was combing my hair I really didn't think anything about it. And it was really sore. And then it was there and it would go away. And then it didn't bother me for a while. My hair, I didn't notice any changes in my hair or anything of that sort. And then it seemed to occur every two or three months. And then more often. So finally I started seeing hair loss. I went to the doctors. The doctor did a diagnosis of me. He had me come back several times. And then he also had me come back several months with a pool of doctors from the Sacramento, Los Angeles area. And I believe he had a couple of doctors from some parts of Texas too. I felt like I was on display because they were all kind of looking at my scalp. Took hair samples to look under the microscope. They also looked at my scalp under the microscope. And it took them a few weeks to come back to me with a diagnosis that I had alopecia areata. And they gave me a little bit of information about that. Indicated that it could be from straining comb. When I was using straining comb, which I really didn't use very much. But they said it could be from straining combs and from perms. A combination. My type hair loss is the, I kind of have a male baldness. It started off real thin and now in the very top. I really kind of have no hair and it's gotten very thin around the edges. So I kind of got a little depressed, discouraged. So at one point I just shaved it all off to kind of see what would happen. The edges came back. You know, but the top where it had came, where it lost the hair did not come back. I was also instructed by a hairdresser at the time that was taking care of my hair to use niacin, shampoo and conditioner. And that was supposed to be really good. But I think it was good from what I understand. If the hair loss wasn't as severe as mine. And of course, I mean it felt good to the scalp, but it really did not bring any of my hair back or do anything. So at that point I started using wraps and different things for the hair because I was very uncomfortable. I was very uncomfortable with wigs and wraps. But it got to the point that I lost so much hair. I went to a place that specialized in cancer and alopecia patients to look at wigs. And then they introduced me to some wigs that was soft to the touch of the skin versus, you know, really some of the wigs are really sticky. Kind of sticked your skin and real itchy. So I started wearing those and I got a little bit more comfortable. And I'm comfortable with them, but it would be nice if I had hair. But I don't think that that's going to happen at this point because it's been so long and I keep losing hair. Once in a while now the pimples will come back, not that often. Maybe once every two or three months or so I may get that. And it's very sensitive for me to touch my head or comb it. I still shampoo my hair, condition it every other day because I work out and I sweat a lot. So I still want to make sure that it's clean. Mary, we want to let everybody know that you're still being treated, correct? Right. This is ongoing treatment for you. Yes, it is, but nothing is happening really.

A highlight from Mrs. Chatterjee Vs Norway (Hindi) (2023) Movie Review
"What's happening everybody, here and Ben back again. We've been in and out of the studio, so thank you for your patience. But, you know, we have lives and we want to go travel. Ben was just in Disney. Do you want to tell us a little bit about it? Yeah, we took our granddaughter, who is 9, we wanted her to get away from her younger sisters and have just a breather. It was a lot of fun. I was just telling Kira, I was playing the crane machine at the Disney arcade and I had won about 20 little stuffed animals and I was passing them out to people in the arcade. It was probably one of the nicest things I've ever seen someone do. People would come up to me and compliment me on it. Shout out to Lily, you're an amazing child. I think that is such a sweet, heartwarming story. I think it shows what a good person you're helping raise and be around and your influence. I think that's really beautiful. Speaking also of children, today we are covering the film Mrs. Chatterjee vs. Norway. This was a user suggestion, so thank you for recommending it to us. I had not seen this film, heard of it, or knew the true story that it is based on before it was introduced to me through this podcast. Ben, what about you? Yeah, I had never heard of it. It was suggested and I actually saw the backstory on it when I looked to see what it was about. It piqued my interest, so I threw it by you and I was like, this sounds like something that would be really interesting to cover. And here we are. And here we are. So, let's dive in. Obviously, it follows the story of Mrs. Chatterjee, who is an Indian woman who comes to live to Norway with her husband because he gets a job out there and he tells her, oh, we're going to live in Norway. We're going to start our family there. So, she follows him there. While they're there, they have two children. And something that I thought was weird was that the government just comes in and does these wellness checks on the kids. I don't know. That felt weird to me without school or any intervention. The processes felt weird to me. What did you think? Well, from what I understood, the coworker had them come in to watch them because the husband confronts him about it. And that's what I thought. I thought the coworker had mentioned something about some kind of abuse that he saw. And that's why it happened. Okay. So, I thought that that was abuse towards her. Okay. Well, that makes sense. And then the children would be under the abuse. Okay. I was a little confused, guys. My bad. So, they come in. They're watching the kids for what? It sounds like, what, like 10 weeks they watch the kids? And then in something that I felt completely unprofessional, they just basically kidnapped. They just take them. Yeah. I was watching it and all of a sudden, they just grabbed them and threw them in the car and took off. And she clings on to the car and goes flying off the car. And I'm like, oh, my God. What just happened? I'm like, this is – I mean, no notice, no nothing. I mean, I thought it was totally unprofessional. I don't know if that's how they do things in India. I mean, not India, no way. But it just totally blew my mind that they would just grab the child and run out the door like a criminal. Literally, like a criminal. And the fact that they were like so fake nice to her, like not even being like, hey, like maybe you should work on this and like change this or we're going to take your kid. They were just like so bent on taking the children that it felt like they never gave her a chance. They felt – it felt like they were just like doing whatever they needed to do to get these children into the government's custody. Yeah. At one point in the movie, they mentioned that, that like most of the children that were Indian heritage were being taken. And it was like under the rug. I don't know if this is true. I don't. This is the viewpoint of Mrs. Chatterjee and her biography. I don't – like I'm not trying to knock Norway. I don't know what happened in Norway. I'm not saying you're racist. I'm not saying you're child stealers. Nothing like that. I'm saying what I witnessed in the movie. Exactly. And this movie does not paint Norway in a good light, I will say. But to that point, this movie also is very one -sided. Obviously, it is. We're obviously going to be on the side of our protagonist, Mrs. Chatterjee. But at that same point, like I felt like they could have really dove into a lot of other aspects of it. I mean, the movie is a runtime of two and a half hours. And the most interesting parts I felt like we could have like had more of. Like the whole work that she does with the female leader when she like goes to the conference. I feel like we could have seen more of that work. We just kind of get in like a montage. I feel like the work that she – that when she has that secret meeting with the other woman about the video of your child. Like he's sad. He wants to come home. I thought we could have expanded on that. Instead, it was like a lot of, I don't know, none. It just felt very long in parts that it could have been shorter. Yeah, I agree. And looking into like I actually – since we've watched the movie, you have to delve into like what it says on the internet and what the facts are or like the facts stated. And from what I understood, there was proof of abuse by the husband and the brother -in -law against Mrs. Chatterjee. So I mean there was reasons for them to investigate. I get that. I mean I don't know why they did what they did by just taking the child and running. That seemed like really dramatic. And if that really happened, that's awful because no one wants to see their child just ripped out of their arms. I mean that's just terrible. And the stuff she went through, if all this is true, is just awful. I mean you can't look at one person because of their cultural differences and think that they're an unfit parent. I mean that'd be like me going into like say the deepest part of Africa and going to a tribe and seeing how they raise their children and being like, Oh, this is wrong. I have to take this child out of here. You know what? Because I'm the intruder. I am not part of that culture. So I can't do that. 100%. 100%. And this movie, it felt like, one of the parts that made me so mad was throughout all these court cases that she's going on, they're filming her have these hysterical breakdowns after her children get forcibly ripped from her. After she's done nothing, she's like, just give me my, like, forcibly ripped from her and then they're like, Oh, well she's mentally unstable because she's screaming and she swung at a police officer. It's like, yeah, this police officer ripped her child literally from her arms and then the other one is like restraining her. I thought that was so, I hated that. It made me feel like it was very demonizing to like, I don't know, to like women having emotions. And like you would see it like with the husband a lot too. Like obviously like in real life, he was like abusive. But like he was always trying to like silence her and be like, Hey, you need to get it together. We need to assimilate. We need to change. We need to do this. We need to do that. Whereas like she was like, but I want to raise my children with the culture that we grew up in and I want to fight for them. Whereas he was very much like all about himself and his citizenship and like making a life for him in Norway and not really like thinking about her and the kids. I believe. And they point that out too when they're like, Oh, well, you don't help with chores. And he's like, yeah, I don't help with chores. I thought that was so funny that he got so like bent out of shape about that. But I don't know. And then going back to her brother -in -law, his brother, obviously a dirtbag. But I thought that one scene between the brother and the representative, the representative of Norway was super interesting. Like that bribe scene, because I was like, OK, you're obviously going to the weakest link to bribe them, painting you in an even worse light. Yeah. But like if you're going to do that, you would go to the weakest link. You'd go to the person that you know is going to be the most easiest manipulate. I mean, they probably looked into his financials and everything were like, oh, like if we go to him, we could probably do this. I'm not saying that's what you did. No way. Trust me. I'm not trying to bash you. I'm not. I'm just saying what I think happened, like if this is how it went, then that's what I believe happened. I mean, and as a culture like the Indian culture, from what I see, and I'm not sure this is even true, is that the husband works, goes out, makes the money, and then the wife is the patriarch of the house. So she runs the house. She's like, what comes in the house is furniture, the food, the preparation of food. So I think that's, I mean, I could be wrong. I don't know. I'm not Indian. I'm just saying from what I've seen from different movies and different aspects, I feel that's the way the Indian culture is. I mean, so I could see that when that was happening, like I was like, oh, I can kind of understand that, you know, but I also understand that like he was a total jackass. He was a jackass. And in my mind, because I am inferring a lot between the lines, in my mind, like she talks about how she went to school and got her bachelor's like degree in science and how like she was educated. So in my thought, like, and then she's like, oh, and then you wanted to marry me. And I thought that, well, we're going to get back to that scene that I'm thinking about in one second. I'm going to finish my point. So when and then they get married. And then to me, it's kind of seemed like she gave up her career or her job or whatever aspiration she had to move to Norway. Because she says that she says, well, before I moved to Norway, I had a job when the other lawyers questioning her in India. And she's like, well, I had a job. And he's like, well, you don't have a job now. She's like, well, because I moved to Norway with my husband. It's like they're they're trying to set her up to not win constantly. And I feel like so. Obviously, like there is a disclaimer before this movie saying that it is dramatized and it is based on true events, but not a true depiction. And I think what we see a lot in the film is like when you're living this, I can only imagine like when you're living this, everything is so heightened and it feels so much worse than like what it could be. And it can feel like the whole world is against you. I mean, I would have loved to see more scenes of like her and the female lawyer that she had in India because it felt like they had like a really great bond. They had like a really great team if they wanted to make like, yeah, because this movie was like half like melodrama, half courtroom drama, half like family drama. It was it was kind of all over the map, which I know is like very true for real life because it was it is based on a true story. Yeah, like learning over time the history of India and like their their subterfuge of like how they were put down, like during the occupation of Britain and all they had to overcome and everything. I can kind of see how like it's it's it's a battle for for the Indian people to like get respect. And I feel like this movie showed that, like, even though she was a mother that was living her traditions and doing what she was, she wasn't respected. Like they looked at her as just like you're an Indian woman and you have no say in anything. And it was like the white women that were in charge of the children and family services seem to look down on her for for being an Indian mother. And I thought that was awful. I thought it was awful. I hated those women and I try not to hate women, but those women were the literal worst. Like when they're laughing in court and stuff and just like snickering to each other, whatever. They're the worst characters in the movie. I hate them. Another character I hate in the movie as well was the teacher who was like, oh, well, she's not involved in the kids schooling because a project was turned in late. It's like, OK, she's also like not she's like being watched every day and like she forgets one project, like cut her a break. I don't know. It felt like she was getting judged so harshly all the time. And like, I don't know. I liked when in the first appeal or second appeal, when the teacher comes and says like, hey, I like and they kind of write her off as a disgruntled employee. I liked what she had to say, because, like, she really did see her like fighting for her children, which is like I get it. Like in the court of law, there's no room for emotion because it is like the law and you have to hold the law and like whatever comes along with that. But I felt like if one person is doing like all this to get their kids back, like obviously they're mentally fit enough to like sit through like courtroom procedures and like beg and plead. But like she felt like she was not being heard until I think the final courtroom scene in India. Yeah. One part that really tore me up was when she was looking at the judge and she's like, please, please let me say something. And she's like, I'll do whatever you want. I won't feed with my hands. I won't. She's like, I just want my children. I'll do whatever you tell me. She's like, I'll be a good mom. I'll be a good mom. Just let me please have my children. And I'm like, you know, oh my God, this woman's basically saying, look, I'll do anything you want. Just give me my children back. You know, and the judge is like, yeah, no. And I'm like, what? No. I mean, just listen to what this woman's saying. She's not saying like she's saying you can watch her. She's saying you can do anything you want. Just give her the chance to be a mother. And I'm like, I'm like, just a lot of it was just very heart wrenching. I was like, oh my God, you know, as someone that doesn't have a child in their life, I was like, oh my God, I would totally do anything to get my child back in my life. So I totally understood what this woman was saying. I mean, you'll make sacrifices. You do whatever you have to do to have your child in your arms. So like, it was really emotional for me. I thought it was a really awful depiction of the government and like how the government can just do whatever they want and get away with it and do. And that is the key. And do. The government will screw you over and they will. Time and time again. And I think it shows because they talked a lot about how the more kids that they have in the foster care system, the like more money that they get. And like I get the foster care system in Norway seems broken. They say it's children first, but I don't agree with that. And then I feel like the foster system here in America is broken as well. Like, I feel like people that are foster parents don't do it for the right reasons. They do it to get the money. Like we even see like when she because I mean, and I was right. I was with her. Like you can't kidnap your own kids, but also you can't take them illegally across borders. Like I understood that. But like when you see her kidnap her kids when she tries to make it to Sweden and you see them just like in this like small dingy apartment being ignored, like she literally walks into the apartment, takes both the kids and leaves. And they don't even realize like she's able to get to Sweden. So I know a little bit about foster care because my mom and dad, they foster children. And a lot of the kids would tell me that they go to houses and that people wouldn't care about them because they were making money. All they cared about was the money they were making. And they wouldn't put the money towards the kids. They just take the money and spend it on whatever they could for themselves and neglect the children. Not all foster parents are like this. Do not quote me on this saying, oh, he said, no, I didn't. I'm saying these people told me that this is how sometimes it happens and it happens. And I can see that because money corrupts people to the ultimate measures. I mean, you want you don't want to believe in your heart that these people would do that. But money will corrupt people and they will do whatever they can to get it. And it's proven it's a proven fact of life. And we actually see that with the brother in law and the in -law family. So the brother in law and the brother, because I'm sure the brother was in on it. And that whole scene where he was like trying to convince her that he loves her and that they're like doing what's right. It felt so gross and manipulative and just like really disgusting because I was like, you don't care about anything. Like you have not tried to fight for these children once. Like all you care about is your citizenship. So the brother makes a deal with the government that if the kids go into his custody, if she never sees them, which she did not sign off on, they would get paid like 50 rupees and then the Norwegian government would get paid 50. And so then they're like swimming in all this money. And then I mean, that scene when she goes to the house and she's like, I just want to see my kids. Like, she's so excited. She like decorates her house, like, welcome home. And then she can't. Oh, my God. So sad. That scene was like really sad. And then when she goes back and then they like randomly have like a gang of people like warding her off. I was like, where did you all come from? Yeah, it was a little bit crazy. I mean, watching it, I was staring at it going, wow, you know, like. But you know what? It was their neighbors. And I see like, you know, so you got to figure they're in their neighborhood. So they're not going to depict her as like this great person. So the mother seems like someone that would be gossiping and said so I feel that she was telling them, you know, oh, she's abusive. She's this she's crazy. That's why we have these children. And so I think the neighbors not knowing came to their like their defense. We're like, oh, my God, you know, you got to get out of here because you're crazy. You're going to hurt these children. So, I mean, it's it's it's sick and it's it's just twisted. But that's I just I just see people doing this all the time. I see people turning people against other people because they can't. And it's it's power and they have the power. And if you're if you're already down and out, it's hard to get yourself out of that because like once people see you like that, they just it's like you're a victim and they just start attacking you, attacking you, attacking you. And you can't get out of it. I mean, you you fight and fight and fight. And it seems like you're fighting forever and there's never a light at the end of the tunnel. But if you don't give up and keep fighting, there is light at the end of the tunnel. And eventually she finds that light. She does find that light. And I thought the one scene with like the judge in the in when they're in the final courtroom scene in India and she and the judge is like, I want to see the kids and everyone in my chambers. And then he like like acting like the kids would actually go and like talk to him and like embrace him. I thought was so wild because his face is so shocked when they like run to her and they're all like hugging and like dancing. And then he's like, oh, maybe she is a good mom. And I don't know. I really liked I really liked the lawyer. I know that you said you didn't really like him because he came back to fight against her. But I think the government did that as a way to kind of like dig at her and dig at the case and be like. But I thought like because he was talking about being adopted, too. And I don't know, maybe he wished like someone like that, like her would fight for like him as a kid. But I think like fighting and seeing her fight for her and children like I do think he respected her and saw what she was doing and didn't believe like the slander that they were saying about her. Yeah, because there's a part in the movie where he's buying flowers for his adopted mom. I mean, he loves his adopted mom. He says it. He goes, I was adopted and I came from a great family that treated me well and did right by me. So, I mean, in his mind, the system isn't that bad, you know, so he doesn't see what she's going through. Like, I mean, he sees it, but he doesn't he never experienced it. So to him, when she's telling him all this stuff, he's like, no, it didn't happen. No, because because he went he luckily got placed into a good family and he wasn't neglected. He wasn't left to sit in a room by himself while the ladies cooking and the guys watching television, ignoring the children. So he actually came from a family that was caring and loving. And I think that's at the end and that gets to him is when he sees just how much this woman cares, how much she loves her children. And he finally embraces it and says, you know what? Yeah, I see it. And I think what was really important, too, was like he said he was like she would never trade her children for money and she would like never do this for money because they kept harping on the money. That was the motivator for the brother, the brother in law and the husband. So I thought that that was really sweet and really nice because, like like we said, money corrupts. And for her, she was uncorruptible in that sense because all she wanted was her children back. I think, too, there is a really and I think, too, there is a nice moment. And I think that if she kept losing the battle and then she gave up not saying that she ever would. But if she did, I think the final home that the kids were placed in, like where they go visit and she was like, you're a good mom, you're going to be a good mom. Like she's like comforting the adoptive mom. I thought that that was really nice. And I do feel like if the kids like maybe stayed in that home, it would have been like a good it felt like a good, like loving home. It felt like they really wanted kids, like maybe they couldn't have kids. And then they finally were able to adopt. And like, you know, there is like a good there is a good system and there is like goodness within it. Obviously, this is the horror side of it. And we do hear a lot of the worst side of it most of the time. Yeah, I thought so, too. I thought like the parents that were in that situation would have been good parents because, you know, she even says, please don't take the children for me, please. And she's like, but they're my children. She's like, you'll have children, but these are my children. I want my children. And you could see like the woman breaking down because she was getting emotionally attached to them. And, you know, sometimes there's people out there that can't have children and they have to adopt. And, you know, they are loving, caring people that want children out there. And, you know, that's the only option they have. And, you know, I think that's one of the situations that these people were in. And I felt like maybe they couldn't have children on their own and they got these two children and you could see that they love them. I mean, he had like a little automated car and stuff like they were going to be spoiled, like rotten. So, I mean, and one part I wanted to talk about was like, you know, them saying that the boy was autistic, you know, and he showed signs of autism. And it was kind of shocking to me, like the father was just like, no, no, no. And I'm like, you know, you should probably try and get these two child tested. I mean, if you love your child, then you hear that they're autistic, you know, and you're not doing anything about it. I mean, that's a reflection on them. And it was the father. The father was just such a tool. And like he has nothing to do with them right now. He has nothing to do with their lives. Like when this all ended here, he just separated himself from them. And like as a father, I could never do that. How could you do that? And I think that too goes back down to like how the husband, how like the father has been like never really cared about like her or his family. He cared about like himself and like having and like what having a family like met like status wise because he was like all about like, oh, I got this new job and I have this great position and I'm going to get citizenship and I have two kids and I like a wife that like takes care of the house. And like, I think that's like is very narcissistic. And like you can see that when he's like, when he just like abandons them. I mean, you can see when he's like actively lying in the court and then just hangs up the call. And then she when she pulls out the phone record and she's like, look at all these missed calls. I thought that was so funny. Like, obviously, like, but like, I think that speaks to his character and how he was never truly like invested in in what she was invested in and what she was invested in was like her family and the children. Oh, I 100 percent agree. I mean, there's one part when he fights the coworker, he tries to fight the coworker that got him in trouble in the first place. He doesn't fight the coworker because of like the child. He fights the coworker because of the problems the coworker caused him at work. And I was like, I was like, OK, you know, you need to get over this work thing because your children are being taken from you, you know, but he could never get over the work. He was like, you know, I worked too hard to get here. I worked too hard to get here. This is where I'm supposed to be. This can't happen. You know, and I was like, all right, listen, it's money, bro. It's it. It doesn't take the place of your children. I mean, it was for him. It clearly did. It clearly did. And like even at the end, like he wasn't even happy for like her getting their kids back. Like all he said was like, oh, I'll take care of mom and dad because like the brother is like, well, now I have no money. And he was like, OK, well, like, figure it out. Like, I'll take care of mom and dad. And I thought that was kind of sad because it showed that, like, even though like he I don't know. And then obviously it went on to make it seem like she raised the children on her own in India. But I don't know. It was it was a sad story. Obviously, if you're interested in it, watch it, do some research about it. It's on Netflix. I watched it on Netflix. The main actress did an incredible performance. I would say like this movie would not be as good if it wasn't for her because she really carried, I believe, the whole thing. Oh, I 100 percent agree. She did an amazing job doing research at the end of the movie. It says Mrs. Chatterley currently lives with her children in India. And that is not true. She lives a thousand miles away doing a job and she's about to move another 300. Her parents, her elderly parents are taking care of her children. But it's a job. So like at the end of the court proceedings, she probably did live with them and was taking care of them. But you know what? You have to work and you have to do a job. So she's out there making money, providing for her children. So, you know, props to her for doing the right thing and fighting and giving it 100 percent of her time to get her children back and not giving up. And like sitting out in front of that building for like hours at a time, waiting for them, just a glimpse of them. I mean, that was heart wrenching. Oh, my God. That was so sad. And then like when they would. OK, back to those evil blond bitches from the Norway, from Norway, when they would just like snicker and film her like, OK. She literally just told her that she could see your kids. And now last second, you're saying she can't. Like, you have to understand that you're not going about any of this in a professional or good way.
Fresh update on "one point" discussed on Simply Bitcoin
"Wait guys, before I get into my little rant for the, and Dell come over here too. Shouts out to Jay Dev says, I love my gold chains. It's a Mexican thing. We just liked that shit on our necks. So true. So true. Okay. Anyways, that cracked me up. All right. As a Mexican you're saying that. Yes. Yes. As a, as a, as exactly as who I am. All right. Uh, Dell put the headphones on. We got a mic. I'll move over a little bit. Sorry. You're going to have to stand a little bit, but, uh, guys. Yeah. So yesterday night, uh, Dell and I were having these conversations. I was having these conversations with Sophie as well. It's, it's kind of the idea of like, how do, were you a big spoon or a little spoon? Obviously the big spin. Um, we were having these conversations and it always boils down to like, what is the goal here at Simply Bitcoin? What are we trying to accomplish? And I say it all the time. Let's see. Um, I say it all the time and, and Sophie and I, Sophie and I have, uh, have quoted it as the idea of like, make Bitcoin fun, sexy, and cool. Like the whole goal here is to explain Bitcoin in such a way that the average everyday person doesn't get their eyes glossed over and is like, okay, wow, maybe I should hold some Bitcoin. Maybe even if it's a little bit, I should hold some Bitcoin because I say all the time, look, if telling people the facts and bringing the receipts actually helped. And if you were logical with most people, if that actually worked, then everyone would already be a Bitcoiner. I think the signal is very strong when it comes to the facts and the receipts of why Bitcoin, but it's all about telling a great story and having receipts on the side so that people understand why they should hold some Bitcoin, why they should get involved. And I think I might've put this tweet up here last week. Um, I only, no, it was in spaces. Sorry guys. This is in spaces. Uh, I only Appleburg did this tweet here and I kind of agree with it. I kind of disagree with it, but I think the first point is the most important point. So he goes, the decent recipe for orange pilling one, let them explain what political problem they like to solve to explain how Fiat is the root of that problem. Three, send them some Bitcoin. Listen, don't talk. The third one, the third point is probably one that, that might be a little tough because, uh, you know, if you give someone something for free, then they don't value it. So make them download a Bitcoin wallet and then, you know, get them involved in it. But the first point I think is the most important point. Let people explain what political problem they'd like to solve and then you angle it into, yeah, well, Fiat is the problem and it kind of goes back to what I tell you guys all the time is bait the hook for the fish you're trying to catch. Try to explain Bitcoin in a way that gets people emotionally charged. And I think the point here though is what we've been talking about. Shouts out to Guy Swan, cause I haven't heard you say this, but I totally agree. And this is exactly what I've been trying to tell you guys all the time. It's like explain to people how Bitcoin can better their lives. All people want to do is live a good life. Explain to them how Bitcoin will make their life better. And Guy Swan, I guess it's quoted here saying, explain to people how Bitcoin relates to them, not what it is. And I absolutely love this message here. And anyways, last night, Dell and I were having these conversations, actually, even this morning, the idea of like, what's the best way to orange pill people? Like what should we be doing? And it kind of boiled down to like, we here at Simply Bitcoin, what we want to do is we want to explain Bitcoin to everyone that is awake and furthermore, everyone that is still asleep. And how do I do this is by telling them a compelling story and telling it in such a way that people get emotionally charged and emotionally involved in this. And it's, this is all we got to do is live a good life and show people that Bitcoin is a way for them to live a better life. And so again, just to wrap up this cause I want to get Dell's thoughts on this. I got this tweet here from Dr. Bitcoin MD and he goes, you are a node on the network. You are a node on the Bitcoin network. Seek inspiration, build yourself up, bet on yourself, thrive, help those around you prosper, activate another node in the network. That's all we're doing here is living a good life, looking at the world at large and funneling everything into a Bitcoin message, because I really do think that we have the answers here, whether I'm right or wrong, Hey, I'll go down with the ship. I'm going to take all my L's with me, but I think we're right. And I think more people are waking up to the problem. That is of course, the out of control money printer. And so as more people feel that pain, then we will have the solution. It's the classic field of dreams. If you build it, they will come. So I was talking to Dell last night and I was telling him like, what's the goal here at Simply Bitcoin.

"With Bloomberg, you get the story behind the story, the story behind the global birth rate, behind your EV battery's environmental impact, behind sand, yeah, sand, you get context, and context changes everything. Go to Bloomberg .com to get context. All about the US recession being more likely than a soft landing. So we spoke to Anna Wong about that, and then we just spoke to Lisa Erickson over at US Bank Wealth Management, who said the consumer is hanging in there, the consumer is hanging in there. So, you know, what's going on? But hanging in there, I don't know, you want a strong consumer, you don't want one hanging by, you know, basically their fingertips off the cliff, which is what it sounds like. A lot of people think that where we're at right now, and I guess we're going to find out in a big way, Tim, over the next couple months here as we head into the US holiday seasons. Let's get to walk you through some of the numbers here with the Dow Jones Industrial Average, going to finish the day in the red, down about two -tenths of a percent. Meanwhile, the S &P 500, which was down more than six -tenths of a percent at one point, Actually inching back into the green here at the close, only higher by less than one point here, but I guess some people will take that here. The NASDAQ composite doing a little bit better, up about seven -tenths of a percent here on the day. The NASDAQ 100 up eight -tenths of a percent, but the big laggard on the day was the Russell 2000, which was right around down about two percent at its lowest point on the day. It's going to close here, Carol, down one point six percent. Yeah, and down for the year. It's down about one -quarter of one percent. So very telling in terms of those domestic companies here in the United States. And almost down ten percent from that year -to -day high. Yeah, significant, right? And I think that we're getting a lot of market conversations around that trade in particular and what it forecast. Katie, hey, the S &P 500, not as negative as it looked certainly earlier in the day, as Romain pointed out, but still 391 names to the downside, Katie, 112 actually eking out some gains here. Yeah, and you're taking a look at the industry groups here. There's definitely more red than green. If we think about what did well, though, media and entertainment stocks.
Fresh update on "one point" discussed on Bloomberg Markets
"Talking about recession. All right now the S &P 500 just about to turn negative up just one point. Dow Jones Industrial Average down 54 points. The Nasdaq 100 56 points higher that is up 0 .4 % and we check the markets for you all day long right here on Bloomberg Radio. I'm John Tucker and that is your Bloomberg Business Flash. I'm sure I forgot some of the data in but there you get the gist of it. Go go yeah we'll get to it throughout the day but yeah the uh the service sector. I mean the good news is it's still above 50 so it means we're still expanding but we're just the dividing line solid point from last month but it's still above 50 so that's kind of I'm gonna go with that one. Alright looks okay to me. Looks okay to Matt. So I'm good with it. Okay good to know. Matt Miller, Paul Sweeney live here in our Bloomberg Interactive Broker Studio streaming live.

A highlight from Episode 124 - Oct. 1st, 2023 - Bringin In The Fall
"Yes indeed, another episode of On The Record Podcast. I am your host with the most DJing tents. I may sound like I'm under the weather, I am not. It's just the sports blues that's been going on right now. My beloved Jets, they fought hard. They did. At one point it was 17 to two. Wow. But they lost by three, 23 -20. I saw some good things. I'm seeing the elevation of Zach Wilson in front of my eyes. When he has time to think and do what he needs to do. Maybe Aaron Rodgers being there tonight was a boost. We don't know. We shall find out as the weeks progress. They are one in three right now. It is a long season. I saw the Jags make it to the playoffs, starting off terrible and ending it off hot. A lot can happen. I think it's good signs when your best player who unfortunately got hurt the first game is still there, even if he's in a VIP box, still there looking and offering more support. And I'm sure he'll offer him words of encouragement and tell him this is part of the process. Exactly. Exactly. That voice you hear is I am Walt. What's up, Walt? Life, man. Yeah. Life is going to. It's the peaks and valleys and but, you know, I'm pretty good for the most part. You know, I got some got some lows, but I'm working through them and I don't want to be too high at times, but I don't want to be too low. But when you are low and stuff like that, you just got to realize it's not forever. Even if even if it feels like it's forever, even if it feels like you mind to get past all the little things that happen throughout your days and stuff like that, or you try to make sense of things that don't make sense. So, yeah, man. Yeah, the valleys. Yeah. Let's get real for a second. IDG, as you know. Of course. Up and down, up and down. Yeah. Trying to get this, I strike the right hot again. This month was September was a very iffy month, a very iffy month. OK. Business wise, I got you. Even this past weekend, yeah, I have been locked in. And unfortunately, the weather just derailed my whole entire weekend plans and just just derailed everything for people out there. If you guys don't know, we're located in the tri -state area of America in New York. And it was a torrential downpour. It's horrible. I've never seen something like that. And New York City got hit hard. Actually, that's why. I've seen something like that before, but it wasn't too long ago. Yeah, but a year or two ago. No, I know. Usually when it rains heavy like that, flooding is inevitable, especially out here in Rockland, as the more they cut down the trees to build these houses, these luxury apartments, et cetera, et cetera, these storefronts, they're changing the terrain, and there's more flooding every time. Bro, the city was looking like Miami, bro. And during the hurricane, it was bad. It was bad. And this wasn't a hurricane, this was a tropical storm. So you had that going on, and I had one of my gigs supposed to have been out there, and they were like, look, our area is flooded. People can't come outside. I'm like, understandable. And the worst thing about it, which I hate, especially for the self -employed people and the people who run their own businesses, I tell myself going now, going forward, I have a ticket deposit. I usually say, nah, it's OK, because I always get it. But now when your back's kind of to the corner a little bit, you're trying to shimmy out of that little corner. So going forward, deposits are a must. Like I said, I do not usually take them, because I'd rather get it all. Because if my whole thing is on my end, in case something happens, I don't want to be held responsible. Fair. That's why I'd rather just get it all, walk through the door. Here you go. At the end of the night, here you go. Boom, bam, thank you, ma 'am. But it so goes, man. It so goes. How have you been? Yo. Man, yo. I've been like, honestly, when it comes to the fall, it's a period where I get a bit moody. I get a bit reserved. I'm more isolated and stuff like that. This is just due to stuff that happened in my early 20s with depression and things like that. And every fall since has just been like moody, isolation, and stuff like that. Now I'm just trying to be in a situation where I find things to keep me motivated, whether it's like watching one of my good friends. He'll be sending me YouTubes of religious stuff and stuff like that. I'm not the most religious person, but some of those things that are said in those videos, I can apply to my life. And then there are the things where we talk about business and things like that, things I don't understand. And I just try to watch videos and try to to listen learn, listen to understand. Now I'm going to get to a point where I'm just going to start writing things down just to keep my mind going. And yeah, man, that stuff I have going on, then what I told you earlier this week I had going on, that was a lot of BS, bro. I can't make sense of that. I can't make sense of that. I'm not trying to dismiss it off as weird behavior, but it feels like it and stuff like that. In a way, because my thing is just like if I'm cool with you and I've always treated you good and stuff like that, I've never called you out your name, said anything disrespectful to you and stuff like that. If you have an issue with me, I would like to know that and stuff like that. If I've done something wrong and I know it was wrong and stuff like that and I reach out and I apologize and I get nothing back, I'll leave it alone. I'll leave it alone at this point. But when I know there was something I did wrong and stuff like that, it's just like, yo, I'm going to be like, yo, and I addressed it, I was just like so -and -so person, what you did was foul. I'm not going to badmouth you, disrespect you and stuff like that. But if I ever see you, just keep it pushing.
A highlight from Pack Smarter, Hunt Harder: A Two-Part Series with Mike Kentner
"This episode of RadCast Outdoors is brought to you by PK Lures, Bow Spider, and High Mountain Seasonings. Fish on! Hey! RadCast is on! Hunting, fishing, and everything in between, this is RadCast Outdoors. Here are David Merrill and Patrick Edwards. To get back on point, we've covered quite a bit of it. When you're setting up for these hunts, depending on this, that, and the other thing, what are you doing as far as bow hunt, rifle hunt, ammunition? Are you just taking just one quiver full, or are you taking what... Because there's a lot of weight in the ammo for these things. Archery -wise, I take my one quiver full. I carry a pack of six arrow quiver. That's what I kick in, no matter where, from backcountry mountain goat hunt to antelope alongside the truck. I carry six arrows. You get six tries and you're done. Yeah, if it takes me six tries, I'm going to go back to truck crying. I'm pretty much done. A lot of times I will carry extra arrows in the truck, but I may be miles from the truck at any one point, but I've never yet run into a situation where I've emptied my quiver and not put an animal down, but it could be done. I've seen it done. I just haven't accomplished it yet. And I'm actually the same way. I run a... one is a grouse arrow, so I actually only have four broadheads. I run a five arrow quiver anymore. And by the time we get to that third arrow, it better be done. Now, knock on wood, I haven't got into the fourth one yet. I do sometimes pack an extra broadhead so I could change out that grouse arrow, because I'm tired of wasting broadheads on grouse. And I'll tell you, anytime that we see a grouse when it's seasoned on pause, it's time to put a grouse in the pot for dinner. So that's... I'm glad we're on point there. As far as... say elk hunt or mule deer hunt, you didn't fill your tags and you're going, or you drew something that you're going to go rifle hunt for, how much are you going to plan on packing for your rifle? I normally carry 10 rounds. That's what I... usually four in my gun, and then I put another six in my pocket. If I was going on a multi -day hunt, I may pack a few more, but... Have you ever needed more than that? Really, I've never needed more than that. Usually what's in my gun is... the four in the gun is more than sufficient. There's been a few times I've used a few backup rounds trying to finish something off, but it's most of the time, it's the four rounds in the gun's all I've ever needed. Dan, I'm similar. Once that first arrow flies or that first bullet flies, it's a little bit chaos for a moment. And if that first one didn't go where it's supposed to, it doesn't get better with the second and the third of archery. I've made a marginal first shot and the second great shot, right? It has happened. And same with the rifle. But typically we're trying to make sure that first shot counts, and then the nexters are just tertiary, right? So as far as getting into calls, obviously, dear, you're not packing much, Antelope, you're not packing anything. But elk, what's your go -to stuff to have in your backpack and on your person? I carry an open reed cow call, a bugle tube, I have multiple brands, I have a whole closet full of them because I'm addicted to elk calls, so I don't even, I'm not even brand specific most of the time. And I usually have about eight or nine diaphragms with me at any time, mouth diaphragms and all different tension stretches. So I can reach from more lower growly bugles to higher, get up to the more higher pitch sounds by the different calls that are there. And most of the time I carry two of each because in a good day, a lot of days I'll wear out one reed. I pack four to six for, and I have a few more in the truck and I'll, same thing, I have a couple tensions and I'll wear out one every two or three days, I just, they wear out, they just do. Yeah, you stretch the latex in them, they get stretched out. What are we supposed to do with these things once they are stretched out? Because I'm always tossing them in the fire. Yeah, I get rid of them, they're not, they're no good, no use to me, I just throw them away when they're done, when I'm done with them, but, or let my grandkids use them. Okay. I just wanted to cover some of that, the call stuff specifically. We've gone through optics, obviously shelter. Each one of these items, guys, is going to be specific to your hunt, right? There isn't a hundred percent do all. Now, for the most part, I'm taking the same binos and the same vinyl harness, right? If I'm going to pack a sidearm, I'm taking the same sidearm, elk, deer, antelope, mule deer. I'm using the same broadhead for elk, deer, antelope. A lot of this gear transition, I don't have to buy a whole bunch of different gear, but I retool definitely or re -kit and go from a 18, 22 pound day pack up to a, I think the other day I was at 52 pounds with four days of food, right? But I had the heavy spotter, I had the tripod, I had the sleeping pad. The Hilleberg, it's got a big enough vestibule that you and I could put our packs and bows in the vestibule and sleep in there, but it's still shoulder to shoulder tight. I don't mind if it's nice weather, I'll hang my pack on a tree or something like that. If like when we were mountain goat hunting, there was not really any place to hang stuff. So it's got to come in with you to stay out of the weather and even August in Wyoming hunting mountain goats, you're going to weather some thunderstorms. They just collide over the top of those big ridges and you're in the wide open. There's nothing to hide from them in. Yeah, I can just last week I was on a solo couple day elk trip over in Wyoming and in one of the mountain ranges and every evening you could see it building here at Cummin and I actually, it was about two, three in the afternoon, I went and hid in the tent for 45 minutes because it was torrential bound for and I was out, I was back at camp about noon and elk had shut up about nine o 'clock. So I was just waiting for them to start up in the early afternoon. So those afternoon naps, elk hunting are amazing. I think that's half the reason I go anymore, but I will say that to be able to throw the backpack and bow in the vestibule, crawl in the tent and just wait it out when it's sheets of rain coming down, it's worth it for sure. And if you were trying to bivvy sack it, and that's what I found, I still have a XBG Cabela's bivvy sack in there for a while. I had the sleeping bag and pad inside that. You still really have to set up a tarp unless you want, unless it's really good weather. Yeah. Yeah. If it's just, if it's bluebird sky and you're just going to sleep on the ground, they're okay. If you're in mosquito country, you're still going to have mosquitoes all over your face. I just, guys can scream at me all you want. If you love your bivvy sack, I've had one and I'm just, I'm not a big fan by no means of, I don't think there's any more true security in a tent than a bivvy sack. There's just a little more protection from sideways rain and from wind. You get a lot more space between your bag, between you and the weather. Yeah, I agree. And when you get up and it's drizzling and you got to get dressed, when you sit up in a bivvy bag, it's raining and you got to get dressed in the rain. It's a little demoralizing when you're in your tent and you can open the. I opened the door and cook in the vestibule and can start getting dressed and I can have my rain gear on before I even step out. It's, it makes a little different atmosphere when you can get dressed, quote unquote, indoors before you go outdoors. So definitely your, but when we start adding all these things up weight wise, your kit can really start getting, your backpack gets heavy and yeah, for sure. One thing we didn't talk about that I really liked that Bowspider selling is our pack covers or waterproof backpack covers. They are multi -use, really nice. We have two sizes, but what I've found is if you put that receiver on top of your backpack and then put our ultra lightweight backpack covers over, you can still put the post through the material into your receiver so you can have your backpack waterproofed. If you're running our bow slicker, you can have your bow waterproofed and still have quick access when you're hiking around in the rain and that's actually is pretty handy. It is pretty handy if you're getting into bad weather. So definitely a waterproof backpack cover. If I have my rain jacket and my backpack cover, I'll hunt in some pretty nasty weather before I even put my rain pants on. But I am running gaiters, right? So if the brush is wet, most of the time my legs are still staying pretty dry. Now it's got to be pretty nasty for me to go, all right, it's time to put the rain pants on just because I've got the pit zips on the rain coat. So if I'm hunting with the rain jacket on, I can open those pit zips up and I'm still getting rid of a lot of that moisture humidity. Once I put the rain pants on, it feels a little more, locks in, claustrophobic, I build a lot more heat and sweat and I can't move as fast as far. So certainly that's some of the things I do, you do. It's great that we covered some of the same stuff. Food wise is one of the big things, food prep, food. What are you doing on a multi -day hunt versus a day hunt? Day hunts, I grow mainly with granola bars and sometimes tortillas, peanut butter, a few things like that. I don't carry a lot of heavy food with me. Pound of food, maybe. Pound of food, maybe. A few granola bars, protein bars, stuff like that. Multi -day hunts, I'm usually running granola bars for breakfast, something similar to that lunch time and then dehydrated dinners for whatever brand you prefer, for the dehydrated meals or freeze -dried meals for dinner. I've eaten quite a few of them and there's a bunch out there and I'll ramble through a few of them.

A highlight from S17E5: Should you stay or should you go?
"Hi, I'm Yui Xu and I'm Julie Krafcik. We're active daters turned dating sociologists here to dive into everything modern dating and relationships. Welcome to the dateable podcast. Welcome back, friends. We are you and Julie back for more of love radio on a one point five FM. People are like, am I in the right place right now? That was a good sexy radio voice there. Here to answer all of your love questions. Is this what you do at night at practice? How do you know? Have a side gig? You know, that's what I did. I used to listen to a lot of late night radio in high school because that was kind of our podcast back in the day. Yeah, I was like, does this actually exist? OK, so this is a story I won't like out our friend. This is a mutual friend of ours. I don't think you know the story. She wrote it to Dr. Drew. This is what she was dating her husband at the beginning. And she was unsure about was he ambitious enough? Was he a career driven enough? And she called in the late night radio. They put her on air and heard it. And they were just like, shut the fuck up. Like this guy treats you great. Just get over it. And it helped her move forward. Look, I know she's married to him, so it worked out good for Dr. Drew. I used to give shout outs to boys. I had crushes on on the radio. Did you ever do that? No. I'd be like, is there someone you want to give a shout out to? Dial 1 -800 -da -da -da -da -da -da. So I did that. I remember doing that. There was a guy named Bradley. I was so madly in love with him. And I used to give him shout outs all the time. He didn't even go to my school. I don't even know if he knew my name. I'd be like, this message is for Bradley. This is UA. I just want to say I really love you from afar. And if you get this message on air, give me a call. And I would give my phone number and the radio station would be like, beep, beep, beep, beep. Like, little girl, please do not give out your number in public. That's amazing. Did I tell you I used to work at a radio station back in the day? What? Look at that foreshadowing. I was at the promotions department. I wasn't actually on the on air team at all. But yeah, I guess there was something there. All that to set you up to talk about this very deep topic today. Oh, yes, it's a good one. We're just doing another one of those episodes where it's just Julie and I to discuss a topic that we have such a strong interest in. So you'll hear our voices on this episode. Yes. You know, this is a topic that we feel very, very strongly about. But we did a call out in our Facebook group of what type of topics are you interested in for this upcoming season? And someone put this down and we're like, this is a good topic. Like, what is the line of when you should stay and try to, like, make something work versus leave and go? This topic is such a popular one because we are told such contradictory messages about relationships. On one hand, you're told relationships are hard. You got to work at them. And on the other hand, we're told when you're with the right person, things should be easy and you shouldn't have to work too hard in the relationship. But once you're in a relationship and you feel like you're really trying hard to make it work, what is that point of saying I've tried hard enough? I've tried my very best. I've tried everything and it hasn't worked. Yeah. So it's time to get out. Or is it the point of like, we could try harder? This applies to when you're in like the committed, full on relationship. And I think it even extends earlier. We hear of people all the time being like, oh, I went on one or two dates, should I go out with them again? You never know. Like, when is that inflection point that you should give something more of a chance versus cut your loss and try to meet other people? And I think the other piece of this is so often there's a camp that doesn't try hard enough, right, when things get tough in a relationship or when, you know, maybe it's not fireworks or the spark at first sight, but then on the flip side, I've been here before. I don't know about you, UA, but like when you overstay and you know, something's not working yet, you just continue to try to make it work. And we see this all the time, especially like when people are in situationships, it's like, oh, if they only see how good of a partner I can be, I'm going to just keep trying to like make them see what they could be missing out on instead of just being like, this person doesn't want the same thing as me. I'm going to move on. How many times have you talked to someone who've been in a long term relationship and you ask them how long it was, and they always say two years too long or one year too long or should have ended at the second year. And I would argue that there is no overstaying in a relationship. I feel like the overstaying years are the trying years. You're just trying, right? We only think we overstayed in hindsight, but when you're in the relationship, I get it, like you really just want to try your very best. So as we go into this conversation, maybe we can just get that out of our heads. It's like, you're not overstaying. You're just trying to work through the entire process. I agree with you in most scenarios, but I do think there are some when like you're clearly not on the same page and some of it's in fantasy worlds. And I've been there before and I'm saying this from someone that's been there. Like when someone's clearly not telling you, like they don't want a serious relationship, I've stayed to try to make something work where it's just an uphill battle. And I think we also need to recognize those situations, too, because, yes, if two people are fully in it trying to make it work, I agree with you. But a lot of times that's not the case. And it's like we have selective vision of what we want to see is happening. I wonder about that sometimes, right? Because our conversation today will be about your voluntary decision to leave a relationship. When should you leave and when should you stay? But in some situations, like in your previous relationship, you almost need something to happen or realize something for you to want to make that change. Yeah. And I have a friend currently in this situation. She just cannot see, although everybody around her sees that this relationship cannot last. I almost feel like she needs something externally to happen for her to like really see this clearly. Well, we're going to go through it today. We're excited to dig in very deep, because as you could already see, there's a lot of different scenarios. This is a very wide topic, but we're going to go there. But before we do, let's hear a message from our sponsors. This episode is brought to you by Drizzly. Tonight seems like a great night as any to wind down with some wine after a long day.

Learn more at meta .com slash metaverse impact. Go back 230 years of history, four and a half percent on the 10 year treasury yield. That's the average. So there you go. Yeah. 200 years? That's interesting because Katie keeps bringing this up. And what's great about it is there's, I don't think there's any way for us to actually check anyone's this because data goes back 200 and something from Taylor something years here. All right, guys, we've got a lot to talk about here. I want to start off with the Dow Jones Industrial Average. It is down about 389 points, around thirty three thousand and six hundred points down about one percent here on the day, but more importantly, a close back below its 200 day moving average. The first time that that's happened for the Dow Jones Industrial Average since May. The S &P 500 lower by about sixty four points or about one and a half percent. It is close getting closer to that 200 day moving average, but we should point out it is now on the precipice of being an oversold territory when it comes to the RSI. The NASDAQ composite down more than 200 points or one point six percent. And the Russell 2000 going to finish lower on the day by about twenty three points or one point three percent. All right. Digging a little bit deeper into the big cap names, the S &P 500. We've got the S &P 500, as you said, remain broad based in terms of selling some four hundred and fifty five names to the downside. Katie, forty six to the upside to unchanged. So really a risk off day. And unless my eyes deceive me, you take a look at the industry groups. Every single one is down. We're talking about twenty four industry groups. Hopefully we'll show them soon. Every single industry in the red bear telecom was your relative best bet, but still down two tenths of a percent. And then you go down the list, some of the biggest loser, there's tech hardware.
A highlight from Rep. French Hill and Sen. Tom Cotton on opposing the shutdown
"Welcome back, America. I'm Hugh Hewitt, another gold bump in honor of Senator Goldbars Menendez. I'm joined by Representative French Hill from Arkansas. Representative Hill is one of the smart guys because he's on the Intel Committee. That's handpicked and the Republicans are always serious about that. He's also on foreign affairs and financial services. Our old friend John Campbell used to serve on financial services. That's one of the smart committees. So Representative Hill, welcome back. Good to have you. But you are a Vanderbilt grad, so we're not going to talk about football. Seriously, you lost to Wake Forest and the University of Las Vegas. Does that, how does that go down with the Commodore Nation? Well, it's we're always waiting for golf season. Congressman, the House is going to come up with a solution or the government's going to shut down. What's it going to be? Look, Hugh, if we want to be strong, if we want to lock in the wins that we got in the debt ceiling negotiation, when we put forward a plan that actually cut spending year over year, change the regulatory focus, encourage more people back into the workforce, we need to pass these 11 remaining appropriations bills. And that was not gotten to over the summer, even though now think about this, Hugh, even though each of those bills is written at a spending level below the debt ceiling deal and each one locks in conservative policies. It's really so frustrating to me that those have been delayed from coming to the House floor, including twice over the last week by a handful of members when they're missing this big picture. Lock in the wins, cut spending, reduce regulations, get more people back in the workforce, get the spotlight back on Joe Biden's failures and off of the House. Congressman Hill, I don't expect you to speak ill of a colleague, but I can. Congressman Gates wants to be governor of Florida. Congressman Maryland native Matt Rosendale wants to be senator from Montana. Ralph Norman, Congressman Ralph Norman wants to be senator from South Carolina. Going to run against Lindsey Graham. And Congressman Dan Bishop wants to be the attorney general of North Carolina. So I understand self -interest. Those guys have no interest in governing. But do they really want to bring down the Republican majority? Because they're going to get crushed if they do this. Right. But by this kind of of tactic, you're going to end up with a Biden Schumer clean debt ceiling deal and with spending levels, certainly at the Biden McCarthy level, but weaker policy, weaker policies. Because in order to be the strongest negotiator, get the most conservative win, we need to pass the appropriations bills. That's why McCarthy's plan this week of trying to get the rest of the bills across the floor, at least 70 percent of discretionary spending, plus plus a four week short term stopgap spending measure measure that cut spending, repeat cut spending for that one month and put border in the spotlight by putting H .R. two on. There is no conservative that should vote no on that. And this is just arguing against ourselves. It's a huge mistake. Now, Congressman Hill, I call him now St. Kevin. I've known the speaker for a long time, and now I'm going to have him nominated to be considered for sainthood because that is a difficult caucus to deal with. When you've got four members who are leading the Nuckelhead caucus and my buddy Ken Buck wants a CNN contract, there really isn't any appeal to their self -interest. How do you move them? I mean, are you going to have to use Democrat votes? And can and can Speaker McCarthy remain speaker if he uses Democrat votes? Well, I think that's what we have to try every single day to put a bill on the floor and find out that, as you say, this small group is the tyranny of the tiny, as I describe it, is violating the majority of the majority because they're going to hurt the conservative cause. They'll cause us to lose the House. And that's certainly not in the interest of the conservative cause when we're on the cusp, potentially of beating Biden in the presidential election and winning the Senate back. It's ridiculous. You know, if former President Trump gets reelected and the House switches to Democrats, they will impeach him in the first week. Do these allegedly Trump supporting congressmen. And it's Norman. It's Maryland native Matt Rosendale is running for Senate in Montana. It's Ralph Norman and it's Matt. Have they heard from the former president that he wants to be impeached again because they sure are acting like they want him impeached again? Well, look, they don't even they spend what he says now. President Trump last week said use the power of the purse to get control of Joe Biden's two trillion dollars of extra spending. I agree. That's what the debt ceiling does. And that's what these spending bills do. And that's why we have to get them across the House floor. He did not say he Trump did not say shut the government down and act like knuckleheads. He said, use the power of the purse to get the most conservative deal. Get this country back on track. I agree. That's what we could do if we had those four people assist us get these bills across the floor this week. Well, I just their their incentives are to get ink. And I mean, their incentives are not the incentives to govern. And I don't know how hot it gets in the caucus. Can you tell us that our members of the caucus about had it with these guys? There's nothing you can do because they're running for statewide office. But if they had it and expressed it. Well, I think they have had it and expressed it in blunt terms, including calling them out that if you vote against the rule on the House floor, you're working with the minority party. You're working with Democrats when you do that. That is not acting as a member of the majority. And I think you're seeing the country respond to look at Moody's comments yesterday, look at the VIX up to day three percent. Look at the 10 year Treasury rate up over four point five percent. This is going in the wrong direction when we should be taking a win right now of cutting spending 24 over 23, getting better rules and regulations in place, countering Joe Biden's bad policies. And as I say, encouraging more people back to work through our welfare reforms. These are classic conservative Republican wins. And we're squandering the opportunity. Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory is kind of a Republican specialty in the House. So let's let's focus on that for a moment. When do you get a test vote today or tomorrow on whether or not the four will move or they will stay for? They've got more than four right now, but you've got serious people like Chip Roy are not playing these games. Will the Freedom Caucus bring whatever persuasive influence they have to bear on them? Well, we're going to bring a rule. The rules committee met Friday and all day Saturday, so we'll be bringing a rule up either tonight or early in the morning. That will be the first test case to see if we can move these spending bills, which includes state and foreign operations spending, which is at one point seven billion below twenty nineteen levels.
A highlight from The uniphore approach to conversational automation with Kim West
"All right. We are live and kicking, I believe. Hello, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls. Should have sorted my windows out before I started this broadcast, but there we go. Hello. My name is Caine Sims, as always. And as always, this is VUX World. I'm delighted for you to join me. Thank you for joining me. And today we are joined by Kim West, who is a director of product marketing at Unifor. A lot of you probably know Unifor. Unifor has been around for a long time, actually, and has been through various guises and is now definitely one of the leaders in the conversational AI space. And so we're going to be picking Kim's brains around some of the successes that Unifor have had, some of the tips and tricks that she might be able to share with businesses that want to try and capitalize on what is now probably the biggest growth industry going. Since last November, conversational AI is looking good. And so, yeah, excited for this conversation with Kim West. And so without further ado, let's bring Kim on, shall we, Kim? Welcome to VUX World. Great to be here, Caine. Thank you for joining me. All the way from Canada. All the way from Canada, Toronto. Nice, nice. Representing. Lots going on in Toronto. Like, it seems to be that, you know, I say this every time someone from Toronto is on, which seems to be fairly frequent enough, but yeah, Toronto is a happening place in the AI space right now. It is. We like to say in Canada that we are part of the sort of creators, the place to be. Yeah, yeah. A lot of exciting companies in Canada as well. Cohea is based in Toronto, I believe, actually. They're doing very well. Yeah. So yeah, there you go. Thank you for joining me. So tell us about yourself then, Kim. How did you get into conversational AI generally? Yeah, no, great question. I always like to say that I am a former agent, actually. So Unifor itself started in the contact center space thinking through how do we actually improve communication. I was an agent 20 years ago, came across these companies that were actually doing cool things in the contact center space, and so found Unifor about two and a half years ago, and loved that they were looking at the full experience. So not only the back end in terms of tools for agents and then not just QM, QA for quality management, but they're looking at analytics in a unique way, and then really looking at the front end. I was like, wait a minute, if we can improve what's happening on the call or in the chat, we have some analytics, how do we then improve that front end self -service experience that a lot of customers are looking for? When we think conversational AI, we think of that front end, but it really blows throughout every part of the interaction a customer has with any brand that they're talking to. Interesting. Definitely get into analytics shortly, because it's definitely a topic well worth exploring and underexplored, actually, in lots of cases, I think. So you were a customer service agent, so you're answering phones at one point 20 years ago, you said? Yes, so I know the pain. I did it for three years, and I understand the sort of strain that happens with that in terms of you have to be efficient, you have to hit certain metrics, you get rated on how you're doing on a daily basis, sometimes weekly, in terms of did you do the opening welcome call, did you do all of the authentication, and then on top of that, did you upsell, cross -sell. So there's a lot that a customer service agent actually has to know and manage in one time, and the idea that for so long they were just doing it on their own is fascinating, and I think it's a great training ground for anybody that then later on wants to go out professionally into any role. I speak to myself like the reason why I have comfort speaking at all times in any medium is partially because of that experience. Yeah, and that's evident because I sprung on you that this was actually going to be a live broadcast about 10 minutes ago, and so adaptivity is also something that you learned there. It's interesting because we had the conversation with Sham Aziz from Selfridges last week on the podcast, and it touched on these exact issues, not issues, but these exact points, which is that having that foundation in customer service, answering calls, speaking to customers, teaches you so much about business in general and gives you a load of foundational skills that you can use for everything else beyond that. And in fact, Sham was saying that he thinks that spending time in customer service should basically be either an apprentice or a mandatory requirement of entering the workplace in general because of how much value there is to be learned there. Completely agree. There's actually a company I know based here in Canada, regardless what level you are, when you join the company, two weeks of the sort of onboarding is that you actually need to either take calls or need to do side -by -side shadowing of the customer success team, so you have a strong understanding of the customer base, their pain points, what the company actually does, regardless if you work in finance or if you work on the tech team. Yeah, exactly. I agree with that. And the other thing we were talking about is how customer service as a job isn't what it was kind of assumed to be before, which is like, so growing up and going to college, going to uni or whatever, at that kind of age between 16 to 20, early 20s, lots of friends had jobs in call centers and stuff like that. And it was always seen as a similar kind of job to working in a corner shop, which I used to do, or working in a bar, which I also used to do. It's almost like that entry level kind of job for lots of people. But the conversation I was having with Sham last week was that actually you've just named a load of stuff that customer service agent needs to do. Multiple systems, you need understanding of technology, you need to understand people, you need to have relatively not just thick skin as in not to take offense when you're being shouted at, but also the skills to be able to navigate that negative conversation into a positive conversation, which is a tremendous social skill to be able to have. And so it's kind of like, yeah, although there is these entry level jobs, customer service shouldn't really be one of them because it is quite a complex area. Especially not anymore. I think what's so fascinating is that now they're actually looking for people. So if I look and I think about our client base, our customers are looking for people who actually have post -secondary education and have some sense of being able to absorb a lot of new information because that adaptability and being able to understand what the company does really appeal to that customer, navigate the different issues that they have, maybe transition them into something else that they weren't even calling about. So yes, you resolve their base issues, but can you now maybe upsell, cross -sell them into something? Can you inform them on something new that's coming in the next six months? You're kind of getting that sort of seed planted. There's a number of things now that I look at it as becoming more and more of this professional training ground more so than just entry level. And you could have tiers now within the contact center of like, yes, come in entry level, great way to sort of just get started. But then there's growth potential even before you get to the next levels of supervisor management. And then it helps you if you want to continue throughout that company. Because most companies, if you think of the ones that have contact centers, are large global brands that we're all familiar with. We've all at one point had to call into a contact center because of some issue. And so those companies have fast departments and other areas that that person could work in as well. Mmm. Olya is shouting Shopify on the chat on LinkedIn. I don't know. That's because is Shopify one of the companies that mandates people spend time in customer services when people begin? I don't know. That'd be interesting. I wouldn't be surprised, actually. I know that they do encourage their employees to actually build their own retail store. So I could imagine they might be something similar like that. Just it's the empathy piece at the end of the day. I think the biggest thing, what I find funny actually with all things AI coming into our space is the emphasis on being human. And it's almost like we had to get the reminder that we shouldn't just be going through the motions for the longest time. When it came to customer service contact center, it was like the necessary evil. Like, let's have this thing. Let's make sure people are getting their answers. But now we're stepping back and rethinking it and saying, wait, how can we be more human if all of the other stuff that was like drudgery and time is being handled by the tech? How do we show up to be empathetic, personal, connect, actually build a relationship? And we know that gives you a lot more in terms of what everybody wants. Long -term customer value and pieces like that. Definitely.
A highlight from #72- 5 Teaching Mistakes I've Made and How To Prevent Them
"Welcome to the Teacher's Impact Podcast, or better yet known as The Tip, where teachers can come to master their craft, use their voice, and enhance student learning. Welcome to the Teacher's Impact Podcast, better yet known as The Tip. On this episode, we'll be talking about five teaching mistakes I've made and how to prevent them. You sometimes may think that the perfect teacher does exist despite the many accolades, awards a person may have, most teachers make mistakes. These are just a few of the mistakes that I've made and what to do to prevent them. Number one, the first one is understanding how to build professional relationships. So what I did, I was always going to conferences and meeting people and thinking that I was networking but I didn't realize that building a professional network is building relationships. You have to take the time and effort to build those relationships and those relationships build your network so that you can rely on to support you in your career. At this point, I focused on building relationships with my co -workers and colleagues instead of just getting to know someone so there's an intention behind it. The second mistake I made was to take evaluation feedback personally. At one point, I did not receive good feedback and I was really upset about it. I felt like I planned a great lesson and it went well but I didn't think the feedback was great at all and after really thinking about it, I thought to myself that I did my best. That's what really matters. I would just need to focus on one or two improvements and ones that I truly felt like I needed to work on based on the evaluation evidence. It's okay to be upset when you first receive feedback but remember at the end of the day, if you did your best, that's all that matters. Pick one or two improvements that you know you need to work on based on the evidence and evaluation and go from there. The third mistake I made was taking on too much responsibility. There is something to be said about being ambitious but we have to remember that if you plan to stay in education for a long time, you will need to pace yourself because you will get burned out and I have experienced this and so taking on too much responsibility. One of the things that I did to prevent this was to ask myself the simple question, why am I doing this? Is this something that I can really add onto my plate? Once I've answered those two questions, then I make a decision to make sure that I'm not adding anything to my plate that I can't handle or is going to make me overwhelmed or burnt out. So some key takeaways from this episode are to build professional relationships. Remember not to take feedback personally and number three, be mindful of responsibilities that you take on.

A highlight from Saylor Now Own's Almost 1% of All Bitcoin, BUYS MORE | EP 831
"Yo intro first You're against freedom Yeah, we're gonna salute Bitcoin live we're your number one source for the peaceful Bitcoin revolution for breaking news culture manic warfare We will be your guide through The separation of money and state. I hope everyone had an amazing effing weekend I did I got to chill, you know everyone on the weekends like man like like what'd you do? What like, you know, what did you do anything crazy news, whatever? No, man I stayed home and I chilled and I relaxed because the week, you know, it's the Bitcoin rollercoaster making Bitcoin media You know, it's a grind. I'm not gonna lie It's very purposeful and I'm very very grateful and privileged Opti and I are and the rest of the simply Bitcoin crew But but it is it is quite a bit of a grind. So on weekends, I get to chill. Anyways enough of that breaking news Michael Saylor buys Even more Bitcoin the man or micro strategy better said now owns almost 1 % of all Bitcoin sky talk about Conviction this is conviction Michael Saylor is proving to the world and this is something that I've been saying guys in the next two or three years it is going to be Undeniable, it's gonna be an undeniable fact that naim bukele's Bitcoin strategy and Michael sailors strategy on the public company level is Going to be an alternative than holding fiat currencies on their balance sheets Especially with the FASB rule changes, especially with the Bitcoin ETF around the corner there They're gonna they're trying to do whatever it takes and I believe it's politically motivated I'm not the only Bitcoin or that has said this by the way That they're you know, they're trying to slow this down But it's gonna be undeniable and they're gonna have a very hard time Debunking this that Bitcoin Itself, it's just a better money It's just better money and governments are gonna have a hard time disputing that and the reason they're gonna have a hard time Disputing that number one is because they're always going to do they're always gonna want to debase their currency They can't afford the endless wars. They can't afford sending billions of dollars to Ukraine If they didn't have the money printer, so they're gonna have a really hard time explaining that away and number two Censorship, of course, right and the control on money itself, right? A lot of the reasons that the BRIC nations have sought alternatives to the US dollar Not only because the US government is printing a ridiculous amount of money but also because they've politicized the money they've weaponized the money against their political opponents and Fine, you could you can make the argument. I'm not gonna I'm not gonna make those judgments the government of North Korea are bad Okay, and the government of Russia is bad the government of Cuba is bad. I'm not gonna get into those arguments, right? but let's talk about The vast majority of people that live in those countries that are not have nothing to do with the government They're just like you and you and me. They're just trying to get by they get caught in those sanctions they have nothing to do with it and The system that they want you to live in is if you live in a certain if you were if you happen to be born in a certain country You happen to have certain political beliefs. You are not entitled to have to open a bank account You are a danger. You're a risk. Well Bitcoin is for you Bitcoin is your money it works. So they're gonna have a hard time and this is why we call it the separation of money and state This is why we bring up the book the sovereign individuals so much because it absolutely Hit the nail on the head this what we're living through right now, but it's not only money It's also the disintermediation of information which is happening at the same time. You're seeing it with the Russell Brand stuff You're seeing it with the Tucker stuff Independent content creators are now getting more views and more traction than the legacy corporate media of which they cannot control and that freaks them out too, so After we got over this hill after we endure this this this bumpy transitionary period and if we win the race to avoid the war I Agree with Corey Clifton from swan I think that there's a bright orange future ahead of us and I've never been so pumped about it But I got to say one last thing before I bring up my legendary co -host Michael sailor Please leave some Bitcoin for the rest of us. Anyways Opti. How you doing, brother? I'm doing great man doing great. I also unplugged this weekend. It felt good I was literally joking with everyone in the spaces. I literally lived the meme. Did you guys catch the game this weekend? I unplugged completely what game did he catch? I caught all the games. I didn't do anything yesterday I literally did not a thing yesterday, but watch football Throw tomatoes all you want, but it was it's a great weekend It's good to be a big corner and then also guys mad sailor leave some Bitcoin for the rest of us she It's almost like you taking it all it's almost like you trying to buy all the Bitcoin. Yeah. No, he definitely is bro He he owns 1 % he almost owns 1 % of every Bitcoin. We're at that point. We're at that point in the movie, dude Well, I think this is the PSA where we tell everyone to stop selling your Bitcoin to Michael sailor and huddle onto them coins We're in the dark it actually I saw a good tweet before we go on Nico I saw a good tweet this weekend and it was something on the lines of like Dang, I wish I could remember but it was something like Willy. Woo is bearish Someone there is another part and then it's like and Bitcoin maxis are watching d3 football like if you can't tell that this is the deepest parts of a bear market Like are you even watching there? It was a great tweet I wish I could say it off the top of my head But as you can tell we're in the deep parts of the bear market I hope you guys are stacked and I hope you guys are getting your cash flows up and Just you know getting your body right mine, right? This is the time to get your UTXOs in order to make sure that everything is copa static as we move into a crazy Bull run. Anyways, Nico, we were gonna have a guest today But I'm kind of glad that they didn't show up because I wrote an article for once guys And I'm actually really hyped on this one so I'm gonna read it for you I'm gonna do my best guy Swan impersonation today, and I I think you guys are gonna really like this one So, I don't know it. It's got a lot of soul. It's got some spirit in it It gets me hyped up and maybe I'll give you context for it. I'll just read it and see what Nico thinks He I don't even think Nico seen this yet So I'm excited to get his response his reaction to we're gonna do a reaction video on today's simply Bitcoin Anyway, you go let's get into the show. Are we gonna get a Nico Jones take today? Are we gonna get a wild Nico John? I think so. We got something spicy for the numbers, bro. Let's jump in today. I bet The Bitcoin numbers is your Bitcoin in cold storage really secure is your seed phrase Really secure stamped seeds do -it -yourself kit has everything you need to hammer your seed words into commercial grade Titanium plates instead of just writing them on paper Don't store your generational wealth on paper papers prone to water damage fire damage You want to put your generational wealth on one of the strongest metals on planet Earth? titanium your words are actually stamped into this metal plate with this hammer and these letter stamps and once your words are in they Aren't going anywhere.

Dollars realized monetary inflation one point seven five percent the market capitalization of Bitcoin 513 billion dollars with the B Bitcoin verse gold market cap three point nine nine percent All right, everybody so Opti said Nico Jones ran potential Nico Jones rant What what is this potential Nico Jones rant gonna be about? Well, we've talked about the you know It comes from like the political front this this this saying but I'm gonna apply it to Central bankers, I'm gonna apply to politicians Right, and there is something in the in the political Rhetoric recently and it's called the iron law of something projection, right? So we're gonna take away the political rhetoric because we believe on simply bitcoins not left versus right, right? It's a party of orange versus party of green party of central bank digital currencies nihilism poverty slavery versus a party of freedom Bitcoin Prosperity opportunity optimism, right? So that's really what it's about But I'm gonna take that rhetoric because it is very very powerful rhetoric and I'm gonna say the iron law of central bank Politicians projection never fails it never frickin fails let me introduce you to senator Mendez of New Jersey and let's take a look at what he has to say about Naeem Bukele of El Salvador We have an increasing challenging situation in El Salvador one that threatens both the future democracy in the country and bilateral relations of the United States Over the last two years president Bukele has presided over a number a number of alarming setbacks for democratic governance undermining judicial independence intimidating opposition lawmakers by using security forces to occupy the legislature negotiating political pacts with gangs regularly attacking journalists and media outlets and In addition to these actions Bukele has also repeatedly used his network of Twitter trolls to attract and to attack And threaten not only government critics within El Salvador, but also United States officials We have an increasing challenging situation in El Salvador one So this is just internalize everything everything that this guy said right, you know senator meant You know, he sounded so legitimate.
A highlight from The Mike and Mark Davis Daily Chat - 09/25/23
"Were you hardwired into this program Mike? Kinda, yeah. This was an actual hit. The theme song of this was an actual hit on the actual radio in 1976. We have a happy day's cast birthday. That would be Potsy. Potsy is 74. I have no idea how old Ralph Mouth is. Well, they're all in their 70s. It's a weird birthday too because Mark Hamill, virulent liberal Luke Skywalker, he is 72. And you know, you just pause, you stop and you think about the career and what happened. The great Christopher Reeve would have been 71 today. That 1995 horse accident, man, I still haven't scrubbed my brain of that and what heroism and activism. So anyway, big showbiz birthdays. A lot going on in the news. You want to do some new stuff or the book, the article? Well, let's do both. Yeah, the book comes out this week, the Fox News book, but let's start, let's not bury the lead. This Washington Post poll has people in hysteria. I mean, they are running through the streets of DC with their hair on fire. This is kind of unusual. I've never seen a media organization like the Washington Post produce the results of a poll and then trash their own poll and bang on it. Right. It's an outlier. This can't be real. This can't be right. I mean, it's devastating news for Biden if it's to be believed. Now let's face it. Polls are quirky. Here's why polls kind of matter. We kind of, they don't. The reason they don't matter is because Lord knows we saw polling about the big red wave in 2022 and that didn't quite work out for us. So let's remember before we get too excited about polls that they are subject to change dramatically. But here's where it does matter. It does give a person like Donald Trump momentum. There is an appearance of momentum. There is the facade of surging and momentum, which kind of feeds upon itself. It just, it just snowballs. So it's real. I mean, it's very, very, it's very, very palpable. And it becomes even more and more unlikely that anybody's going to overcome him. But we never know. A lot can change. We still could, we still could change. How about the debate Wednesday? I heard you mentioned driving in. I thought I saw Burgum. Yes, you did. I rectified that a couple. He did. He managed to get 3 % in Iowa, 4 % in New Hampshire. Speaking of polls I'm skeptical of, there's one, but bless his heart. He seems like a good guy. It seems to be wasted time. I have a very short appetite for wasted time. How about wasted money? How about the money he's spending on the ads? You know what those ads cost? I know. And they're all, I see, I see six Doug Burgum ads every day on Fox news, speaking of Fox news. Every ad I see on Fox news for Doug Burgum, I think how many families of police officers would that help? Or how many poor people would that feed? Or how much, how much of a border wall would that fund? It's his money. I know he can do what he wants. But what a waste of money. It seems to be. Unless, unless he comes in third in Iowa or New Hampshire, kind of punches a ticket out of the month of January. And I mean, stranger things, well, not many stranger things have happened, but then maybe, maybe he ends up with some, how old is he? Is there running mate buzz? You're not going to have a North Dakota running mate buzz. There's not buzz about him over here at the 7 -11 down the street from the airport. Buzz. There's no Doug Burgum buzz. Here's the conspiracy buzz about the Washington Post poll that you just mentioned is that this is on purpose. They want to show Biden as desperate so that in the liberal and the Democrat ivory towers, they can really get the ball moving on replacing him with somebody who might have a prayer of winning. So that's not without some merit. I mean, you know, they got to be sitting around saying, this is our guy. I mean, last week at the UN, at one point it was utter gibberish. And you're looking, I'm thinking my Lord, that's the commander in chief of the United States of America. So the Democrats have to see this. Mark, no way he'll be the nominee. No way he's going to run. Shall I ask you? I mean, okay. I'll ask you again. It's a flow chart.

The revolution continues, we can still commit thought crimes. For now, joining us tonight is fan favorite, 10 out of 10 rated, Blake Neff. Say hi, Blake. Hello. That's where he goes. Hi, Blake. Andrew. Andrew Colvitt. Yes. Hello, sir. Andrew and Jack Pessobic. I can't wait for the Halloween episode where Blake is like, Okay, let's dive right into it. Jack, true or false? We got a tranny fired. True. 100 % true. Although, if I might add, the tranny has not just been fired. This is in the quote unquote Sarah Ashton Cirillo, actually known as Mike Ashton Cirillo, the spokes tranny for the Ukrainian military. Not just fired, but actually placed under military investigation. So very excited. Not a good thing to be under military. So do we have the tape? We have the tape of her talking about the Russian devils. And then the question is, was there a Russian devil that was taken up by other means, which actually segues to our second topic? We'll see. That is a real thought, crime. But Jack, build this out. You're on some sort of Ukrainian hit list. Ukrainian government wants you dead. So Jack, tell us about it, and then we'll get to it. So yeah, the Ukrainian government, specifically their intelligence service, the SBU, has this roughly to peacemaker, but it's been referred to as a kill list or a hit list where they will place people that they consider to be quote enemies of Ukraine. And now Elon Musk appeared on this list at one point. The pope appeared on this list at one point. Tucker Carlson, Glenn Greenwald are on this list. And while we might think it's funny or silly, there's actually an American hostage right now that's being held by the Ukrainian government, a blogger and YouTuber by the name of Gonzalo Lira, who was living in Ukraine and was posting on his YouTube channel that he disagreed with Zelensky's government. He was then summarily arrested by the special services of Ukraine and has since disappeared. There have also been people that were placed on this list, including an Italian journalist, Andrea Rochelli, and numerous Russian bloggers, as well as one girl who's the daughter of a Russian political figure who were assassinated in Russia using car bombs and other improvised explosive devices after being placed on this list. After their killings, their entries on this dossier list wrote liquidated. So I was placed on this list and I was made aware of that earlier this week, right around the same time that you were really exposing everything, this American, I guess the word is American recruit for Ukrainian forces. Ashton Cirillo was saying in this completely unhinged rant, saying all Russian propagandists will be hunted down wherever you are and your teeth will Nash as we we we show you justice, only he's not the one who was dishing out the justice. It turns out he's actually the one who's facing justice now. And so let's play the tape here. And this is now play cut 22. Russia hates the truth that their obsessive focus on a Ukrainian volunteer is simply allowing the light of the Ukrainian nation's honesty to shine brightly.
A highlight from The Best Gaming Podcast #411 Phantom liberty review breakdown, Embracer multi dev lay-offs, and more
"And what's up everybody? This is Karrick with ACG and I'm here with Abzi, Johnny Silver and myself doing the best gaming podcast 411 number 411. Thank you everybody for joining you get a chance to check out the YouTube membership. We've got a new special on there for YouTube members. You can join it.

So you definitely want to be a YouTube member. We're going to talk about cyberpunk Phantom Liberty. We're going to talk about all of the Embracer cuts. There's been a ton of the Embracer cuts, which is really sad. We're going to talk about payday 3. We're going to talk about some review scores how that's all coming about going to talk about some new games that released that I want to ask these guys if they've played and I haven't told them not because I was trying to keep it secret, but just because I had forgotten to tell them prior talk about the DLC for Resident Evil 4 Ada Wong. What was that called? Do you guys remember starting? Starting over? Starting again? Starting? Isn't it something like that? Nope. Let's let's name it ourselves. Ada Wong bad voice actress does separate ways. Alright, terrible voice actress and then we'll talk about. Yeah, we'll talk about a bunch of other stuff. Welcome to silver who hasn't been here for a while. I'm starting to pay these guys again, not be not. That's not why he came back, but that's because because I didn't tell him that yet, but we finally got everything sort of situated here and I want to say how much I appreciate the support and stuff like that because it helps the channel stay on YouTube, which is a little bit difficult right now, but we're getting it figured out what have we been playing. Let's go with silver first because it's been a while. You said you've been doing some Payday 3? Yeah, a little bit today. Like actually managed to get some functionality from the servers. I've otherwise been down for a lot of people and get a couple of games in. Gameplay wise, it's solid. I think it's a significant improvement on Payday 2 in terms of just the gameplay, particularly the stealth. The stealth feels a lot less janky. It feels a lot more fun to engage with. It's a lot more predictable in terms of how you interact with it, where when it goes wrong, you have a pretty good decent idea of what went wrong and how you got detected. Where with Payday 2, it could be really, really janky. But I found it to be more predictable this time around. Gunplay is also a huge improvement. It feels really, really satisfying, really, really fun to shoot the guns. The animations for reloading and stuff feel pretty good. So that's also a significant bump in terms of the game's quality. So yeah, it's more fun to play. But unfortunately, the game suffers a lot under the decision to take it to online only, which is something that a lot of people feared back when they announced it a couple of months ago. Because it does require server functionality and the server functionality hasn't really been there. It has to be said that Payday 3 has jumped to the top of the Steam charts. So they've seen a lot of success and that does often introduce issues in an online game when there's issues with it in the data and early access leading up to the release. And so they weren't able to address it for launch either. Servers are crashing. And it's really frustrating for players who are going through a heist stealthily, like nearly an hour of prep work and stuff and you're at the getaway. And then the game drops you and you get nothing for That's it. happened a bunch to a lot of people. It also happened to me today. At one point. There's also some really weird decisions in terms of the multiplayer where there's no voice chat functionality inside the game, which is bizarre in a game so heavily reliant on proper coordination between teammates. There's no text, you can't use text chat in you can't even like if you click ready when you're like readying up for the lobby, you can't unclick ready. So you can't read. So you bet you best be ready. You better be ready if you click that button. Yeah. And yeah, it's just weird. And when the missions end, your team gets disbanded. So if you actually end up with a bunch of competent randoms, you lose complete touch with each other and you can't like talk to them over voice chat or anything to like get a sense of contact information or anything. So the social aspect of the game has been severely limited. The matchmaking itself is really poor. There's no like the crime net functionality of pay day two is basically gone. You basically just go to a mission, you select a difficulty and whether you want it to be public or private or or friends only or whatever or invite only. And those are basically the only filter options you get. And then the game tries to find you tries to match you up and fails frequently at the moment. But that those are all the only options you get. And that I find that severely limited and basic. And I would have liked there to be like more filter options like do you want to play stealth? Do you want to play loud? Those were filter options that were eventually integrated into payday two. And like their absence feels particularly odd here, especially, especially when you also coupled it with the absence of all the other stuff, like the absence of voice chat and stuff like that. It sort of compounds the issue. So it's, it's a very mixed bag. But yeah, gameplay, gameplay wise, really fun to play. Yeah, regardless. Big improvement from from payday two, I think. All right, Johnny, what have you been playing? There we go. So interestingly, I've been spending most of my time playing games on lines of P this week, which as you guys know, that's kind of a 180 from where I was at, we talked about the demo, I wasn't really happy with what was in there, right? I wasn't the game is better than maybe they improved it since I played it. But there's something about it that just fits perfectly into what I wanted. You know, it's a more linear, streamlined souls game, where I can kind of just focus on the leveling, creating builds, crafting weapons. Yeah. And just getting good at the game, right? Or like understanding the the attacks and stuff. So it kind of removes a lot of the getting lost and exploring, which is admittedly, a great part of souls games. But it's not something that I wanted right now, after being in BG three and starfield and all. Yeah, yeah, it's it's good to like not have to worry about that kind of stuff. Sometimes. Exactly. I just know, I won't be getting lost. Right. And I can kind of always trudge on at a pretty good pace. And I frankly, like the combat quite a bit, surprisingly, again, because I'm not a fan of perfect parry. And the game does basically rely on that. Yeah, but they've managed to make it really satisfying. It's kind of like a dopamine hit, you know, when you do get the perfect parry, because you can break enemy weapons, you can stagger them by doing that. So just kind of it feels powerful. It's not just like a gimmick, like an Oh, you got outplay. Yeah, right. It's like, actually, whoa, okay, this is powerful. Right. And you can physically see the effect to because the enemy weapon glows when you perfect parry. And this means you're breaking it right. You're in the process of breaking it. Yeah, by by parry. So that's a huge ability to impact their weapons. That's because that's pretty rare. I mean, I don't I don't know if I remember. And to visually see the weapon broken to let you know, it will be a sword and then the tip is broken, right? And they do way less damage. It's just cool, man. Yeah. Yeah. What about you, Abzi? What are you playing? This week, I played more starfield. And then I some played Liza P, I could like four or five bosses. And then I tried the 2 .0 update for cyberpunk. Oh, so you've been jumping or well, probably started the week, I assume with starfield and then starfield. And then when Liza P came out, I checked it out for a bit. I checked it out for a while. I think I put in like seven or eight hours in that game. Should I talk about it? Or are we going to talk about it later? We'll talk which one Liza P starfield or Liza P. You can talk about right now because just continue Johnny's part. What do you like? What are you getting from it or not? I think it's a fine game. I think it's a fun game. I think, however, it's it's it's less of a soul. It's it's it's souls like to the point where it's like a souls born Sekiro clone. You know what I mean? Yeah. So I think I think it tries to pretty much get a bunch of elements from those three main IPs, even Elden Ring with like the ways some bosses and some enemies kind of fucking go like this for like an hour and then like start hitting whatever. So it gets like the parry from Sekiro and like the left mechanical arm thing from Sekiro has like the bloodborne thing of regenerating health and like aggression. But with this one, you have to block so that you're able to do that. And and it has also you can argue that the the setting is more like bloodborne than anything else. And it has like the kind of tries to hit the atmosphere of the souls games. But I feel like they missed the mark a little bit because the characters do talk slow and like this, you know, I mean, like a souls game. But I don't think the VA is quite up to snuff there. Like it always pulled me out. It kind of felt like they're a little bit too tryhardy on that area of talking. But I think it's I think the fun factor is there. I think the fun factor is definitely there. Now, I think it's a it's the sum of its parts. What is it? What's the saying? It's greater than the sum greater than some of its parts, because when you hone in on like one thing, like one mechanic, like let's say like the parrying, I think it's tight parrying. I think it's a it's about as tight as Sekiro. But I feel like the enemies or the enemy animations aren't kind of built around that you can definitely get good at parrying. But I feel like with Sekiro, the reason why it really worked very well is because there was like a nice kind of rhythmic dance to it, especially with the sound effects and stuff like you could like close your eyes and parry a boss. So it had that thing where the whole game was, was kind of designed around that one thing, which was the parrying mechanic, I think it tries to do a lot of things. And it doesn't hit its mark, like really well with one thing, but all of them put together, it's pretty fun, because you have a lot of options. Like for example, for blocking, you can block and suffer some health damage and and kill that, like hit the enemy so that you get gain your health back. But at the same time, you can also perfect parries. So you have like, and then you can dodge as well. I don't think like the dodge itself is like really good and really tight. I don't think the because I think the hitboxes are kind of fucked in this game, to be honest. And I don't think the parry is like the game isn't designed around it, as I said before, so it's not like really right there. But them together offers like a better kind of experience because you still have that risk versus reward factor. I think it's fun overall, I just have like some issues with it, where there's like better alternatives that focus more on those aspects. Yeah. Gotcha. Super, super chat from wannabe dev.

Today's guest is Thomas Brazile, founder of 117 Partners. Welcome, Thomas. Hey, Laura. Good to see you again. This week, FTX sued Joseph Bankman and Barbara Fried, the parents of former FTX CEO Sam Bankman Fried. Alleging that Bankman was intimately involved in a number of the allegedly fraudulent schemes, such as silencing someone who threatened to expose the alleged FTX fraud, the purchase of property in the Bahamas, Barbara Fried encouraged the use of strong donors as campaign finance laws, or allegedly, and both were accused generally of either knowing or ignoring the red flags that FTX was insolvent. Was this development surprising or expected? Thanks for having me on, Laura. Good to see you, as always. Was it surprising? No, I don't think it was that surprising. I think what was in the lawsuits in bankruptcy referred to as adversary proceeding, but what was seen in the adversary proceeding was probably a bit shocking, the actual details, but I think people knew that they were pretty involved. I think that was some of the heat they were getting post him getting a criminal complaint against him was that, why is he hanging out with his parents? Weren't they involved in a lot of parts of the business and people were saying things like that. I don't think it's that unexpected. People, I think, long knew that there were some real estate transactions where they were gifted or given some certain real estate in the Bahamas, but to see it all laid out in the complaint or I should say in the adversary proceeding was interesting. Which items in particular really struck you? I guess just the involvement in the actual day -to -day stuff. I mean, if you come from a corporate background or were a tax lawyer, which his dad, I guess, was and is, that there wasn't more, I don't know, structure to the organization. I mean, the dichotomy between what people thought pre -petition, what John Ray sort of said post -petition and now some of the revelations coming out about the pre -petition activity. I mean, it's just kind of amazing to think about people that might have been a more corporate background and saying like, if the business was so profitable, why were you cutting corners? To be fair to these guys, like in the light of day, sunlight of bankruptcy court, which as people in bankruptcy say, like my parents would say, the last place you want to be as a criminal is in bankruptcy court because there's so much sunlight and everything. Everything gets scrutinized. To be fair to people, sometimes the stuff gets overly scrutinized and they cherry pick stuff that went on. But it seems pretty damning, some of the stuff and there's, let's see what the responses will be. I mean, it's good for the estate and it's good for creditors because I'm sure they want to see sort of retribution. But in terms of recoveries, I don't think it's going to be incredibly meaningful, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 million dollars. I mean, that's, I don't know, maybe two months of bankruptcy fees. And so, earlier when we were talking about like how some of the things are particularly damning, like if you were to kind of say, FTX will win in court for these reasons, like which were the particular acts that you think probably will put things over the edge? Oh yeah. I think almost all the stuff though, the win on the merits of the fraudulent conveyance. I mean, these are all fraudulent transfers potentially while the debtor was insolvent, potentially while it was coming with funds, so clearly all that money has to come back. I think that's pretty easy. The question is like, what's it worth now and who can actually pay it back? Like if money was given to a charity, can you actually go and get it back? Like meaning, is it there? Has it been spent kind of stuff? And you can only squeeze whatever rocked so hard. So the question will be, what is the real estate in the Bahamas worth? The 10 million bucks or whatever that was gifted to them, where did that money end up going? Can they trace it? So, these things cost money to do and then the question is like, how much of an effort do you want to make? And of course, all that can be stopped by a criminal investigation, which there isn't a complaint, but clearly some of the activity could be considered criminal. And I think, I won't pretend to be a criminal lawyer or a lawyer at all, but when you're bringing lawsuits, I mean, basically these are kind of like preponderance of evidence standards versus like higher standards that you might have for criminal complaints. So, it's easier for John Ray to like stitch together some stuff they know and slap an AP and sue these guys, but it's a little harder from a criminal side. But all of it, just facially, I mean, of course, as my lawyer likes to tell me, like, facts matter Thomas. So, if more discovery happens than they take discovery, we'll see. But on the face of it, I mean, it looks pretty obvious that it's sort of slam dunk. Just the question is what they'll actually be able to recover. Yeah, I think one of the ones that stuck out at me, simply because I could very easily imagine myself in a similar position with my own parents and I could just picture what my mother would say. And it was when they purchased the Bahamas property and everything was just getting billed or allegedly in the complaint to FTX. And the parents didn't even make an attempt to pay to furnish their home themselves. And I could just imagine if something similar was happening with my mother, she would be like, wait, is this okay that we're doing this? Like, you know, she would have so many questions about the money and like what was okay, what was kosher, what was not. Like, I could just practically hear her in my head. But at least, you know, from what the complaint described, it didn't feel at all like the parents had any of those qualms. So that was... Yeah, it wasn't 100 % owner of FTX. So it is bizarre that those red flags wouldn't have been, or people wouldn't have been like, hey, I know that you think this is okay, but I don't. Like someone would have said something, maybe they thought it was a drop in the ocean, but if FTX was so wildly profitable and Alameda was so wildly profitable, they didn't need to cut in corners and have them picking up the checks. I mean, it would have been easy for Sam to just be like, no, I'm picking this up personally or something. Well, one thing that I also noticed is that the document hedges its language saying things like, quote, Banquin and Freed either knew or ignored bright red flags revealing that SPF and other insiders were orchestrating the scheme. And again, you know, I saw later again, it was like, they either knew or blatantly ignored. So, yes. Right. That's because the standard for these civil cases is much lower. You know, like if you were trying to criminally try them, you'd have to like really show that they knew because they're going to say they didn't know, they didn't know, right. But the standard for like breach of fiduciary duty or, you know, kind of unjust enrichment, it's a much lower standard. All you have to basically show is a reasonable person should have known, you know. Oh, oh, I see. Yeah. So, that's why they keep saying that. So, you're saying – So, basically, they don't know whether or not they knew, but it doesn't matter for what they're trying to do. Is that what you're saying? I will respectfully say that I'm not a lawyer, but a stress investor and what people usually say – is the standard is usually what a reasonable person should have known, steps a reasonable person should have taken, best practices that a board should have taken. So, like a board of directors, if somebody runs off with money in a company, they don't have to necessarily show that they knew the person stole the money, but did they take any steps a reasonable person would have taken to like verify that the money was there or that the person wasn't absconding with money or whatever. So, it's this reasonable person standard that I think you trigger under Delaware and there are a lot of jurisdictions for breach of fiduciary duty or breach of loyalty, duty of care that you have, mainly in the boardroom, but also I think as a C -suite executive and it sounds like he was sort of melding between the two. So, basically, yeah, they're just trying to meet that standard for their purposes. They don't need to go beyond. And Barbara Fried, you know, also – so, as far as I understand from reading this, you know, Sam Pinkman was definitely involved more in the day -to -day, you know, he was often listed with FTX management. He could make executive decisions on his own at one point saying, oh, I'm just going to make this decision without Sam, like we don't need to involve him, that kind of thing. So, Barbara Fried was not involved at that level. However, it did say that she was a key influence on the campaign donations and I wondered what your takeaway was in that regard in terms of, you know, her involvement there. campaign finance fraud. Yeah, I don't have too much to say other than it's just bizarre that, you know, so many corners were cut in regards to stuff. I don't have a real view on – again, it's like it helps them build a story that they can, you know, just slam dunk, take back any money that was taken out of the estate at any point in the last couple of years by Barbara and the husband. But I don't think that – I don't have a real view on that. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. And as far as I understand, I don't think they're married, they're domestic partners. Just to clarify, yeah. All right.

Spout Run Parkway, which normally takes you to the southbound parkway is closed between Lorcom Lane and the parkway. So if you're coming off of US 29 thinking to get down to the GW Parkway, you're diverted at Lorcom Lane, best to avoid it if you can. Now if you're traveling northbound, they did reopen a portion of it, but it's still closed. Northbound between Spout Run Parkway and 123. That means anyone coming north on Parkway the GW from Roslyn, you're diverted to go west on Spout Run Parkway to access 29.

And here's how we're going to support one another and that way it's tangible and we're constantly reminded as to what our goals are. I guess if you take that collaborative approach getting the buy in from the from the children as well not and they don't see it as. Oh yeah this is being dictated down to me and just their natural reaction to something being dictated down is gonna be oppose it and push back absolutely absolutely when parents say it's my way or the highway or don't ask or don't listen to their kids. Oftentimes there's an increase in challenging behavior in the behavior that we're trying to squash we end up seeing an increase. It doesn't build skills when i just say okay. This is what we're doing. It doesn't help the kid build those neuro cognitive thinking skills that i was talking about doesn't do any of that. They have to either do it. Or they're probably getting in trouble in doesn't build the relationship if we're gonna get through any hard stuff with our kids and there's going to be hard stuff. We have to have a great foundation. We have to build that relationship where the child feels like. They have a voice and that their voice matters and so working towards that is so important and like you said getting their buy in is really basically hearing them out and when we can do that we're gonna get through the hard stuff because my child trust me and i trust my child and we've experienced other challenges together and we've gotten through that and that's also history that showing. Okay we can get through this. Is there a balanced between the collaborative and parental authority. Where something is not is wrong for them to do it. And obviously you're not going to collaborate with them on it and you could be anything could be hanging upside down from from the shower. Whatever whatever it is but how do you incorporate the parental authority aspect of certain things into that as well so when we talk about our expectations that is linked to our boundaries.

He doesn't play wing ever and he's a great face off guy. Why would you just give up a fifty eight percent faceoff. Winning percentage is he going to be able to do that right off the bat faceoffs. Yes maybe faceoffs. But but the rest of this stuff He's a fantastic skater. When he's fully healthy in that's why you can say like put him on the fourth line for a little bit. Even if you wanna leave bennett center. Put sagan on the fourth line. Give him less ice time and let him skate. And feel it out. But never put it on the wing. That's that was a dumb thing to say. That was dumb. I disagree okay. i digress. Okay so we'll hear me out on this thing we would. You and i don't agree with this but would you take ben and put him on the third line and move down to the fourth line is the fourth line center and let him know that. Been play with the komo.

"Stars take care of business like they have the past two games. They win three two in a shootout. By the way we did mention that they won. They finally wanna shoot out again. Even though that the other shootout they won was against the redwings at least they're waiting. Shoot out against some took took five rounds for us to win in a shootout dhabi just had to decide. No it was going to score anymore and that was the only way that we could win. And two of those shots were missed. Didn't even hit. Yeah they missed. They had shots on five shootout attempts. Okay cool we love shootouts sarcasm for win and the nice thing about the playoffs once we get there. We don't have to worry about three on three overtime or but that's that's why it's like not even worth talking about like oh the stars got better in shootouts k. The seasons pretty much over. And that's not going to help us in the future. So who cares. That's that's my outlook on that right like. There's no reason to talk about it because it's not important for actual hockey because it's not hockey. So for four wins in a row for the stars to against the the really all of declining columbus blue jackets and then to against the detroit. Red wings here. I want to talk about tonight's win. Real quick to is like especially for having rope out and miro out which was kind of a shock. i think to everybody like they. They played the game the best way they possibly could've scoring early and just taking the life out of the game immediately like that's what you had to do. Just don't give them any hope or else we're gonna struggle to score like we always do so. We had to jump on early. And that's exactly what they did and i thought i thought this game. We played as good as we could have. I thought it was fantastic now again. I'm going to go onto this whole you know. We took advantage of. What was there right. So the the defense for the for the red wings in the first period was absolutely atrocious. You know when for two of the three goals both events men were nowhere near the front of the net in i think. That's you know the reasons why he was scored to those three goals. Especially the the robertson goal. I mean i mean no buddy in the front of the net for the rowdies sneak into the slot. What you'd be you become robo. I guess i don't know.

"Remember correctly so that the stars are you know on pace with the rest of the league now With the amount of games they've played and that just leaves the stars with two games in hand over the national predators right now and if you include the two games against the redwings coming up in you assume that we get three out of a possible four points. We're in the playoffs. That's the crazy. Thing is despite oliver frustration this year. Any no uh-huh calling out a bonus at times and us calling out been at times. And sometimes you know the goaltending of khudobin and you know even auditor sometimes We've been a little bit more forgiving injure because he's a rookie but then despite us frustrated at the twelve losses in overtime or and shootouts the star. Still have a shot to make the playoffs. How insane is a good shot like. It's almost becoming likely now that we're going to make the playoffs or just insane. Considering how many games lots i mean. Yeah you look at the games. We've lost we have lost twenty six games okay. Twenty six games. But i i know you it. Include the the shootout losses ties but the the way that the nhl would look at it. They've lost twenty six times and we've only won eighteen games. We have about what eight games remaining. i think. Exactly right yes. Eight eight or nine k so basically in order for us to go real five hundred two we would have to win every single game from here on out and we have eleven games left. We have eleven games left. Okay so we would have to win eight of the next three no nine out of the next nine out of the next eleven to consider you know going five hundred including the overtime losses so you know with with the stars you know possibly making the playoffs without winning more than half their games. Does that change the outlook of how the nhl does the loser point. Do you think that changes could. I don't think it will. I mean. I don't think there's a good alternative really cause i don't want the full two points being decided by shootout and you also don't want regular season hockey games going into like triple overtime. When they've got a hop on a plane in play the next day five like that's not a good solution..

Our komo get wants more than than offer. I think because he just needs to work on his life can conversion man like that will also like the positions in what a shame in the needs to know exactly where the with the goal is which i don't think he does always as even leftover rice. Never lie the keep anything. So yeah i think as soon as awful i on nails like nasdaq range in like i think he. He's going to Bike for days. Yeah foley win optimistic but they definitely not impossible turn out be clinic so anything can often tell me. I don't think this positive. Yeah which kind of ironic you know.

"Like that's all in the past. Now what we need to concentrate on is the future and the you know. Get getting playoffs again. At one point we need. Hopefully we get the win tomorrow to kind of pushes into the playoffs. I mean honestly. I think as well i reckon we could push for fode. Potentially i think even poetry second. I i mean. I don't know who second runners forest. I green stream a foreigner for them so i mean even not like the gap between the second and i. It's only three points. So yes yes three point so i mean am website. Read five points second with four on forest. Green did just lost barrel who we bled tomorrow so now it went viral. Never thinking also also know from the side and that's the one yeah ignore ignored us said but i'm yeah the five the forest green of lost to southend when southend. Obviously i'm doing great this season and third when he played twenty three. Neither relegation bob. But i'm it just shows you on any given. That can come up with the win. you know. Obviously last time we played barrel for example. You know we went inside games all. Yeah we could barter them. Five thirty three so and we were three in the first twenty five minutes and that was kind of the phase where we dot kind of happened where our back on it. But i'm yeah. I mean i can definitely push for third at least it would be good for all this sheds even when i it you know i mean. Obviously i'd almost prefer second just so that you know rain known we go in up. Yeah that's that's what is going to be the most about playoffs is it's not necessarily the what seeing if actually win. Because i'm confident. We can not knowing you know anything could happen in them games realistically so anything could happen. And that's going to be the more stressful Boda is sitting the being like. I don't know if we're gonna be could have done all this work and then not even go up. That's going to be the worst pop for sure. I don't know if you get seconds. Mossy y of george because in the place cannot gillette. Have more time off. You know that. Get ready for the next season But yeah and then we can. Definitely i the wounds expiring. Wanna keep them on. All the main won't with the loans is madison. Lhasa bet speak about but yeah. Madison is the one i would like to see that permanent and take any of them realistically. You know baked uptake. Jim i won't take john declan john as well. You know. I take any of them. But i mean i think somme priority wise.

"Yeah. I mean anyone that wants to bring stocks open an unwritten amina own your own odd to say as watch sons journal game and you will understand why he is the best sense of back in this league hands down. He's the best know just just away. He is like he commends not defense. Almost like he met his almost as if when when. The opposition's is als- is almost as if this is my territory. If you want to get to that goal you have to break down the wall which they don't do so there's no way you hustle through me. He as a brick wall. I mean thousands. But he's not breakable folk. Yes in the metaphorical sense. He's literally everett will come. But yeah i mean bust in the league from. I know he's been to what you've been saying on sausage. He's been getting stick. He's not against the or do you think about people saying squirting him for what he's been doing the find a bit because my how many players realistically the you know the so for an injury right for three to four weeks and then still want to play after only having one training session like saas fully. Hence why didn't stop even the fight each each van alone wounds the game. You don't know six exactly booming. It just doesn't make any sense like people like to jump on on wagons one per year Go play off the that's right. I agree with that but then two seconds left. Prime example is literally every single area because on the they've just crept into. This goes way in for some things. Go wrong from quiet on. Oh yeah gone very quiet. Yeah they've all been on twitter. You know all of this. It's awful effort call through the players are doing this. You just stay in the shadows. Even let's say we start losing games again..

"And obviously don't think he'd been clear the air for the oxygen when he pitched with bolton cal. Yeah he was weird dot manual. Yeah lack of just add. Charolais compare last season because as two different seasons but also the he joined us he would've still been silent into the stop. It's probably also reason why he didn't. You know there was a few chances towards the star of the season where he probably should have put them aware. And you know. Didn't they got the team. Silent end whatever. At least it's not cost as you know a chance at playoffs you know realistically it could have been worse. It could've been. It could've been could've been a lot worse. If for example we board scoring any goals pretty much constantly leaves in than we probably see besides table so we could have already basically financed offseason before ended boy and find out be relegated. Yeah i mean. It doesn't look likely. We're going to get rid of the gate realistically but again all though i know but you never know Benign i mean all wise. We're gonna get relegated. Which is a good thing. Because i honestly i'm dreading the de star ever happens where we i'm not even in the league and championship all the prime. That's what i'm going to be okay. Well this is not gray's well yeah another player who i think has not been given credit in offense regardless on talks obsolete In defense solely as well anyone. That was when i think there was one game where he wasn't gret. Everybody we to jump on the bandwagon and criticise every single. I'm pretty much bollock very few people. Also the same. We've sausage sausage was even criticism just before he go. Injured comes back. He has one training session and then wins the game and then of swelling league team of the week. He's been in more than probably anybody in the league right now. So you winding in november december january and february a mental easily. he's been in almost every month realistically. It feels like it's been though every month. He does not get. I'm sorry sorry. I am point so he deserves been way too team. That team are you. Don't know of over defender can keep keep up with what he's doing. Oh yeah no chance. I though i think this is one step and i will confidently say you know. You're declan jones Yeah i mean. Ricardo santos the best selling book in this in down. I'm sorry okay. People probably up stops and stuff but you know not all about him you know. The defense is made up of at least four people. Five jokes ever johm taste some socks jones and then kill gilchrist. He helps taint. The on is to go. It will stay back all communication by All will step.

They're always the not while the number radio target. From what i've i don't know if it's just him get him look here on Bombing coppola vibe honestly you. There's somebody like madison. The winning balk dos. Just i dunno. I can definitely at least five goals more with us. At least but i'm yeah i mean playoffs. Is the realistic talk about. I believe cambridge lightweight. Fifty four points. Something fifty to fifty to wear on for four. So i mean again. The gop in points isn't that it's impossible. I just don't know if it's going to happen. They probably won't so that's why playoffs is kind of the compromise. Essentially you know we got us early gulf talk to so we'll we'll southfork gloves. I agree 'cause i think pointing deploys mindset triangle pl- a width light. So my some wall coast to the talk to different mindset go in just pray pressure teams foam. Bona lot will which i've seen. In the past few six games with watch the five wins making teams fumble on on the pressure with the mindset. That he's paul plays in bolton was literally to and seat in the mindset wasn't even good choi winning games and drawing dropping points where we return win them jaw or syndromes into wings. We'd be already in playoffs. By or even talk to by talking about the importance of by us what you think cadet when john's performance because i already think he is one of the best west box we've up this season two. I honestly can't really ask them all for him realistically you know. We managed to keep clean sheets. Now i think we're getting into the habit of doing that. And obviously it's down to jill violet. Jokes was medicine in.
