Just leaving bogas feels like we've been there forever. A large chunk of our lives there and say we can almost say that we lived in days. And we we're finally heading out not gonna miss these.

And so he made his from buddha gos- via various battles and victories and ended up in valencia way rained for many years ova both christians and muslims. That's something that's often not said about the seven hundred or so years when the moors were in spain often christians and muslims live harmoniously side-by-side and this place were in the evening molina. A aragon was used to be tough. I think that was the name of independent republic muslim republic and in the years when the the were cephalopod often in spain. And i understand. This place was predominantly inhabited by 'em by berbers. Rich bergersen. And all of us jackets barbara. The barber's by account. My knowledge doesn't doesn't find research. I'd ask these researched it before. We our on our odyssey richard in spain but described the scene. Because of you love donald. Trick question brilliant. I'm going to have to prepare those described the scene. Well we can see a castle up there and it's a pretty desolate place though isn't it. I mean driving from burgos to hear the miles and miles of nothing really am. You're quite how we were remarking yesterday. On how high this plateau is there. A few parts of the uk that are as high as as we is. That's a central the high the central plus spare. It's just it's just pretty highest phase meters And you know the there's nothing is is is you can see why the spaghetti westerns around here because as it is quite desert-like isn't it. We saw something strongly birds yesterday as well didn't we can hovering around and i didn't realize that such enormous politics pointed them but they were enormous and they were just hovering above the ground. And i didn't know what they were and still don't and you can get up for that. I believe to help identify birds. And but daniel today was We weren't quite sure what to expect. Youth point the road was a bit misleading. Yeah there was a lot of talk about the road book and the the profile would please. How paid paper and what he was going to be like on no in reality this morning the starts and obviously as we've mentioned many times in lost few months years the right isn't teams Very well prepared very much. oh faye with will. What's gonna face them every day. Because they use apps like vella viewer and google earth and so there were no real surprises for them. But you know. I went up that softening rich For the finishing it was really the last three hundred meters that kicked up. I think it really affected the timing sprint on we so groupama f- dj the really good leader. They really go out together. After a difficult second day here the welterweight went wrong. And today they lead damore up beautifully but he went quite early. I think he went with about one hundred and fifty or one hundred seventy five meters to go. Which would usually be a short sprint. But actually with the road campers it did about five or six percent. He possibly when a little bit too early whether he had enough power to be jakobsen. Anyway is another matter. I think the mar- could be quite happy. Because he's been well off. The pace wasn't an it was a sort of return to farm for him today. He was very gracious in congratulating yaacob gibson. Actually at the finish is always quite gracious. Isn't a. I think he might be quietly. You know you'll take for the days ahead because he hasn't been anywhere near winning on today was close as he's been for quite a quite a while some encouragement for him there. I think m yeah you asked for. Philipson was boxed than they again. They'd they'd numbers up there but didn't get their act together and not weird crashed for the of all people. The red jersey. I mean one writer goes died in the middle of bunch. And you realize that it's the guy and right jersey foresee within three comments so he didn't lose any time it didn't seem to be too badly hurt either. Just talk wheels.

"So we the way he works as you Contact him use you. Send him a phone. And there's only a few that this can be done with. So i ordered off the amazon a pixel for a which is A modern phone has got a lot of good stuff on it but he then d. google's it strips everything google off of it except for the logo on the back which luckily is is just in a its it embedded. It's not a color logo because that would be showstopper for me. Any loads graphene os. And i received this day before christmas. And i've pretty much now finished setting it up this phone kits at all for the ot g for two reasons one. It's really one reason the granularity in which you can define what you want your device to do by default is great but you can set it to really anything all nations down to the To the lowest The thing that it can do or not do every sensor service etc can be blocked turned off from any service. You don't use a google play store apps. Use this three app stores. That i know of now one is the f. Droid open source. Then you have aurora. Which can spoof some google play services if you want to use that. I don't see why you'd want to use any any app. That isn't free and open source it. I it is fast. It is elegant It's a beautiful machine and it. You really keep the tracking down to a minimum. It is truly a spectacular device. And i really appreciate a tim for doing that for me. And this is what i would recommend. This is also. I think the snowden combo that he's promoted to guess as good news It's it's over three hundred bucks. I got a dynamite device battery life. Eleven hours because you know. There's no less stuff happening in the background. I thought that was spectacular to will about the navigator yes navigation. It has a downloadable app. This you get this from the again from the open source store. It's called the second and what's the name of it. I think it's called has a weird name. Osma osma something and he uses open source maps but it has a perfect navigation. You can you can download the maps do not streaming where you are. You could use this with with your phone completely disconnected if you want for navigation. So that's a big plus what else you want to know everything. It does everything the house. The camera work. Camera is spectacular. There's an open source camera app because it's really now these days more in the processing and everyone can get the i don't know how many pixels that has But it's it's not zero for that matter. Well it's megapixel list The open source camera app is beautiful it it takes. I mean it's comparable to tina's iphone eleven. I think she has. And we were comparing. Pictures is beautiful. So that's good. What else oh yeah he. So here's the only downside. Here's the texting. Yeah and with with open source with graphene. You can use any number of different texting apps so you can decouple decouple that from you. Know typically an iphone. You got one app. That's going to do your texting. And that's it and it led by going through the phone. Yeah that's what. I'm saying so regular phone. Sms you can. This must be fifty different Texting apps but you can also Inc and have everything in one app like signal if you want so that. So that's taken care of. That's good what else. how about. How about the fart noises button. Yeah you got me there. Do not have a fart noise button. This phone sucks graphene s. It's the way to go the only bummer. I thought these pixels would do external display usb c two. Hdmi and google disabled that on these devices. So i was so happy at all. This could be daily driver for me. I could just plop this thing onto a big screen. I don't need much more. It's working perfectly. It's fascinates yield prediction. Seaboard works great. Diction why when. I got columns. I wrote in the eighties talking about pocket computer that was essentially a phone. That you drop in a little thing. It's got you know terabyte of memory which is not much anymore but it would give you a nice big screamed. High resolution Keyboard on their business and they have the capability of doing that with these phones. Yes all i need. I guess mirror cast. There's different ways to do it. But i mean i'm gonna have to find a phone that will take graphing and also do video out 'cause then you've got the dream that's all i don't i don't need sue. Everything you have in one fell swoop just by being a good pitch. I have nothing to hide. So i'm not worried about that. Nothing to hide over here. So that's my tip and go to no agenda phone dot com and Hit up tim there our producer ninna and get one of these. It's nice. It's remarkable as i also haven't quite figured i.

"President elect Joe Biden met virtually today with frontline workers to hear how the covert 19 pandemic is affecting their jobs. As NPR's Osma Holly tells us, he listened, ask questions and tried to reassure them. That is immediate priority as president would be this pandemic. Biden is blunt about the current situation, he says. Without a green light from the G s. A. His team has been unable to get essential information about the pandemic from the Trump team. So, for example, he says, they don't have a clear sense of protective personal equipment stockpiles or vaccine deployment plans. There's a whole lot of things that are just we just don't have available to us. Too much has made available soon. We're gonna be behind by weeks or months. Biden was referring specifically to the fact that a couple of pharmaceutical companies recently released news of a promising covert vaccine. But if his team can't coordinate with any current public health officials, the country could experience a slowdown in responding to the pandemic. Asthma holiday.

You could be successful there very easy, good to grow rich, well draining soil and a listener reminded me needs to be a little acidic as well. Best amount them up when you plant them and space them properly so that they can fill in. You see the landscape pros put them in, and they just fill in so well, so make sure to space them right. They don't crowd each other out. I'm going to get bigger. Use a fertilizer like Osma coat. It's labeled for its Osma coat, outdoor indoor plant food, and that is just fine.

And then once their cure Jing just storm in the pantry, Make sure it's a dry place that has a temperature of around 60 degrees and number three. I always advocate manual removal of weeds and unwanted things first, if that's possible, but kudzu poison ivy. Any other weedy vine more susceptible to chemical control this time of year. If that's the route, you have to go. I use bio advanced brush killer and that works very well but followed the label directions. Make sure you protect other plants around that from any drift or spray But weedy vines just anything that you don't want now the seas of the leaves coming off the trees.

How Trump's COVID-19 diagnosis could impact his campaign and the 2020 election

"President. Trump's corona virus diagnosis has upended his reelection campaign with just about one month until election day. Early, voting of course is already underway and more than a dozen states in many more are accepting mail in ballots. Let's bring in NPR political correspondent Osma holiday high. Asthma. Well the president is trying to project strength while he's hospitalized at Walter Reed his twitter account has sent at least nineteen tweets. Today he's been releasing videos periodically like this one over the weekend. So it's been very interesting journey I, learned a lot about cove it. I learned it by really going to school. This is the real school. This is the let's read the book school and I get it I understand it and it's Very interesting thing I'm going to be letting you know about it in the meantime we love the USA and we love what's happening. Thank you. So obviously asked my he's got his eyes on many different audiences when he does something like this, there are people all over the world who want to make sure that the president of the United States is okay. But with his eye on the coming election, what is he trying to do here with all these tweets and videos? Jeremy my sense is that he's trying to project this image of vigor and strength, and that's something that the trump campaign has been trying to do throughout this pandemic. They had criticized Joe Biden, his opponent for allegedly hiding out in his basement, not doing as many public campaign events and trump they said had been going out in person campaigning. The trump campaign has been knocking on doors do an indoor canvassing for a while and the Biden campaign had been much more conscientious and. Cautious about all of that behavior. So my sense both from sort of this public ride around to say hello but also from the tweets is just this idea of projecting strength but thing Jeremy about that message I don't know maybe it will galvanize supporters of his, but it also could really turn off voters. This idea that he's now really learned about this pandemic when we're seven months into this crisis and over two hundred, thousand people in the United States have died from covid nineteen.

"Three times a day, so we only need to fertilize three times a year, all Citrus and containers. I really prefer USMA coat particular 312, racially 18 6 12 or something comparable to that, and that's resin coated. Slow, slow release. Especially for containers. And remember Citrus or a tropical. They have abundance of leave. She needed lots of leaves a lot of green healthy leaves in order to get the fruit. So if you have not fertilize your container stitchers or your landscape Citrus About landscape. You don't wanna use Osma coat there. It gets too expensive. I know it gets expense. So this is Tom release the resin coated even if it says six months, and some of those formulations say up to nine months. You know, the March and June application. With the quality of water and the heat that we have. It just burns that fertilizer out quicker because of the intake uptake of the plants. So if it says 6 to 9 months, really, for us, you'll be lucky to get three. Maybe four months of nutrition out of the show around the in ground Citrus in we should be putting. What if you want to use the R? Oh, yeah. If you want to use organic option To fertilize everything and early early in the mid September like Medina growing Goring Granules, which is poultry based. There's also a lot of alfalfa base or gang we use about a rule of thumb since Citrus has grown as a Bush multi trunk Bush A small tree type weighs about a pound for every 3 ft of haIf evenly applied on the drip line, which is outskirts of them outermost branches. On then thoroughly watered in after you apply it. Maybe replenished the organic mulch if it needs a like that double shredded hardwood mulch compost. And I should really do it Member. We're fertilizing in the fall. Just like the bear. Does you know before they hibernate?

Do Fish Experience Thirst?

"Brain Steph Lauryn Vogel bomb here with today's Day's question. Do Fish get thirsty and okay. The short answer is that we have no idea because thirsty is a human experience of wanting a drink and any it beyond would tell you that we can't know what fish or any other non human animals are thinking and feeling e you know exactly when you're thirsty you might experience a range of symptoms perhaps dry mouth fatigue reduced urine output lightheadedness and weakness among others and when you're really really thirsty like lost in the desert without got a canteen type of thirsty you simply crave water sometimes to a degree you can hardly think about anything else that powerful urge is what keeps our bodies lease from becoming dangerously dehydrated but because we can't put ourselves in his shoes or fins. There's no way for us to know how fish perceived thirst or if they do it all we spoke by email with Boston. College Assistant Biology Professor Christopher Kennelly he said I think of as a cognitive response to hydration and it's hard to get inside officials brain however we do know quite a bit about how fishes regulate water balance regardless of their thirst drive. I've worked lack thereof. These creatures absolutely need hydration to stay alive. They regulate water balanced by a process called Osmo regulation which is common to many other vertebrates including humans ultimately says Kennelly Osmo regulation maintains the appropriate amount of salt and water in the body and two main Oregon's uh-huh precipitate this process I the kidneys kick into gear helping to maintain salt levels and second the gills have special cells that exchange water and salt with the environment notably. The process varies quite a lot depending on where the fish lives in freshwater or insult water a freshwater fish. Don't actively drink water because it would dilute their blood and bodily fluids. Kennedy said the challenge for freshwater fish is different than marine fish. Sh four freshwater fishes the blood and tissues are much saltier than the external environment and thus water follows this asthmatic gradient that is the body is a salty not sponge so the challenge in this case is to keep water from diluting the body to counter this the kidney of a freshwater fish expels a lot of water from the blood and creates creates very dilute urine. He noted that freshwater fish are almost always peeing out this diluted urine while their gills are constantly pumping salts back into the body using these specialized salt cells on the other hand salt water or marine species often drink water through their mouths to keep hydrated the challenge lynge there is to avoid losing water to the much saltier environment and to keep excess salt out and Kennedy explained their kidneys remove salt and conserve water her while the salt cells in their gills pump salt into the water using these different directions of passing salt and water the bodies marine and freshwater fish are equally hydrated consultee but what about a naturalist fishes like salmon that swim in both freshwater and saltwater we also spoke by email with Rebecca Ashish Hache an assistant professor of fisheries biology at East Carolina University. She explained that Salmon Take the change in stages sort of like an airlock quote. Adult Salmon migrated into freshwater in order to reproduce. There's often a staging area where the same in hanging out before completing their migration. This staging area is located so the the Fisher exposed to some brackish refresher water so that they can gradually gain as Mata competency before migrating into their freshwater spawning grounds as climate change rapidly warms the world's waters fish like salmon may experience fast changing conditions regarding temperature stability and water columns around the globe. This can dramatically alter the way fish just to the water's characteristics ash says that in some cases where warming causes sea ice to break off and float freely really salmon staging area quote there will not be a lot of mixing between fresh and Salt Water because the sea ice produces a large amount of freshwater as it melts in the Serbs is a barrier preventing mixing in that scenario. This barrier prevents salmon from being exposed to brackish water which delays their ability to adapt to varying salt content in their the environment. If this all sounds fishy to you it shouldn't our own bodies share similarities with fish. Kennedy said you can even even make the case that we're at type fish after all we descend from them. Thus we have retained many of the same Osma regulatory mechanisms are fishy ancestors had and and modern fishes still use that doesn't mean you should put your credentials to test especially when it comes to salt water all animals could in just a bit of salt water which is about three point five percent salt by weight but it won't say it your thirst instead you'll get thirstier by the minute as your body uses water to eliminate excess salt from your bloodstream mm-hmm. It's critical that FICHUS OSMO says to regulate salt in their bodies without their sophisticated diffusion processes saltwater fish would literally shrivel up into slimy Limi- raisins and freshwater fish that take on water until they burst

He was doing his own thing, and they basically said, we need somebody in there. It's just gonna. Do what we tell them to do. We're getting the point where managers and head coaches are becoming obsolete. Literally of calls are coming from the press box. Well, the nerds are winning if you will. I mean, I'm a I like numbers that explain what happened. I don't like numbers that try to explain what's going to happen, because it eliminates the human element, and I don't think numbers can tell you about the human element. I think eyeballs are still vital in his decision making process case in point. Analytics is a huge part of what the Houston Rockets. Do. Analytics say that a three point shot is better than eighteen footer. But if you ain't hidden at three point shot, but you can knock down at eighteen footer. Why aren't you taking the eighteen footer because analytic say, I need to take the open three I say dribble gerbil and knocked down a shot and get a guaranteed two versus a likely not three but analytics is forcing you to change. What should be a smarter decision? And when it comes to baseball sustain thing. Yeah. I get it. Analytic say he likes to hit lefties, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. But you know what to this whole weird that picture, right? There is dealing go back to the World Series last year against the Red Sox, Pedro Byas and no one could touch him. He was in there. Laming guys just blown guys away. And then it's like, Nope, it's time for Alex wood here. Homerun game over. Right. But analytic say is time to put in Alexandria. Yeah. Eyeball say that dude is deal. So you could understand why I'm extrapolating here a little bit extrapolation. But if if everybody runs into the clubhouse out of that game and says, Dave Roberts, what do you do when you blew the game he's looking at my leaping bleep decision.

"It's all things considered. I'm Audie Cornish. Ari? Shapiro senator. Bernie Sanders is running for president. Once again, a few things have changed since his last run in two thousand sixteen back, then the Vermont independent was an underdog, and he was the candidate for the democratic party's left wing base today. He's one of the most well known candidates in a crowded diverse and more progressive democratic field. NPR's Osma holidays covering the campaign and has also caught up with senators Kamla Harrison Cory Booker over the last couple of days, high Osma pay Ari, let's start with the fact that many of the ideas Bernie Sanders has put four like Medicare for all a fifteen dollars. Minimum wage are now more mainstream democratic proposal. So how does he stand out from the pack are in some ways he is a victim of his own success? You could say this time, you know, he talks a lot about how three years ago people thought some of those ideas were really radical. But now they're being touted by many other Democrats. And you know, what this means is that he's not the only progressive choice. This. Twenty twenty s cycle. I've spent a lot of time recently in New Hampshire, and we should keep in mind. New Hampshire's estate where Sanders clobbered Hillary Clinton during two thousand sixteen I've interviewed a number of people there though who supported Senator Sanders into thousand sixteen and some are still with him one hundred percent. But there's also a lot of people who are trying other options like combo, Harris, Elizabeth Warren or or shared Brown for his part. Sandra says that he started a political revolution. And now we need to finish it. He believes that he's created a grassroots movement and that real change occurs. Not just political leaders. But when people on the outside push for that change now as we said this democratic field is not only crowded, but it's also the most diverse we've ever seen. How does that factor into how Sanders is perceived because in two thousand sixteen he kind of struggled with some communities of color, especially older voters yet he was asked this morning by Vermont public radio about how he intends to pitch his candidacy in such diverse. Progressive field any basically called for a kind of colorblind age blind. Meritocracy? We have got to look at candidates, you know, not by the color of their skin not by not by their sexual orientation or their gender. Doc by their age. I mean, I think we've got to try to move us toward a non-discriminatory society, which looks at people based on their abilities. After two thousand sixteen Sanders is conscious that he needs to address diverse constituencies more directly. I think the question is how effectively he can do that. But you do hear a note of defensiveness when he's asked about whether the party does want to nominate a seventy seven year old white man this time now, even though Sanders is policies have become much more popular within the Democratic Party, his identity as a democratic socialist is still controversial. And President Trump has been picking up on that pressing an argument that Democrats will bring socialism to America or other democratic candidates responding. Well, I was out yesterday with Comal Harris in New Hampshire, and she was asked about Bernie Sanders. She was really quick to say, I am not a democratic socialist. And also yesterday Minnesota's Amy klobuchar was at a town hall with CNN. She was asked about Sanders Medicare for all idea. She said that that's something we could look at in the future. But you've got to build on what we have I. So there will be a broader conversation in the party between bold progressivism sort of moderate incremental. Approach. But I think the real question is that, you know, there are some progressives who are worried that a Sandra's candidacy will actually divide their wing of the party. And in an essence, what will happen is perhaps a more moderate centrist candidate will rise up. That's NPR's Osma holid-. Thank you. You're welcome. Pope Francis has summoned bishops from around the world to the Vatican this week to talk about clergy sex abuse. They'll consider priests who abused children bishops who cover up for them. And how the Catholic church should address these problems. This is the first summit of its kind. But as NPR's Tom gjelten reports it may leave Catholics in the US disappointed. It was clear in the US before it was in other countries that abusive priests are everywhere and the church leaders. Here have been notoriously slow in responding to the crisis. At least they came up with some plan to deal with it. It wasn't very ambitious, and it would have been hard to enforce under church law. Even so the US bishops were not happy when they're reforms were blocked by pope. Francis proposals were not received as well by the Holy See last November your though we're disappointed, but we continue to work, and we hope that the meeting will be of help the president of the US bishop's conference cardinal Daniel DiNardo speaking recently at the Catholic university of America with pope Francis.

He had become a fold nutsy in nineteen thirty seven and that same year he joined the Third Reich institute for hereditary biology and racial purity at the university of Frankfurt speaks a lot that in this changing temperament. That's when he's crushing it. Yeah. Right. It's there's something about how like somebody. There are time periods for specific people and Mangla saw the gap for himself. Like he saw the spot being like I fit in prevately. Right. And it's like that's not a good place. Big space me. It's like I see myself nineteen twenties jazz period in America, having fun Addison fancy hat on. Also, I like the Dada period of France where people are like doing weird sketch comedy with.

The first statesman to recognize hereditary biological and race hygiene and his way of contributing to the cause was through the research of twins. The thought was that by studying the phenomenon of twins one could unlock the secrets of birth and hereditary function and the creation of the master race with therefore be easier and more fruitful. No, Disney also wasn't. He also obsessed with twins because you had a built in control group. I'd seem see. It's almost weird like weird scientific laziness where what's great about. Especially identical twins for them is that they have the same sets of stuff, and it's supposed to be vaguely identical. So you can experiment on one. And then have a control one to compare it to it all time that was part of it. Yeah. A lot of it was then trying to unlock the secret of twins. They were having many of them. Yeah. And had quite a few of yet. It is impossible for one twin to be strong and muscular and the other twin to be Danny devito. It's an inaccurate, Phil. That's for sure. But if you wanna see a great twins movie risky business. That's a good one. A great one. We're gonna strip mine. I wanna put the hall who for all of the references of this show like all the books and then just risky business. Pretty much essential viewing. Is it cannot be understated. How important the research of professor Othmar Freiherr on there. Sure was when it came to influencing Mangla. In fact, it could be said that Mangla once he was an automates was professor off. My fry have on various shores proxy, it isn't an overstatement to say that the place with these two met was the absolute epicenter of Nazi scientific thinking. This was the orchard where the bitter fruit of the human experiments done in concentration camps was grown.

"Dominica Montinaro. Welcome. All hi there. Hey, Tim pay there. So it has been two weeks since on this podcast. We talked about Elizabeth Warren deciding to run for president. And now she is no longer alone. Not by a long shot. Osma? Do you wanna go through in? What order I dunno chronological pedicle, reverse alphabetical? Why don't we start by the person who's officially in in terms of officially announcing candidacy, and that's who he on Castro. He was the former secretary of housing and urban development in the Obama administration. He's from San Antonio. He's a former mayor there if San Antonio, Texas as he's officially announced that he is now in this race, the I mean, the key thing with Julia on Castro is making his announcement from San Antonio in a bilingual way he was talking about how he's a candidate for president. He said, joy soy Condie dot though. And I heard from. A lot of people access the. For an Italian. I always just to get in trouble with my Spanish teachers because my accent was more Italian than Spanish. So, you know, we'll see if that passed muster but him saying those words in Spanish that he is a candidate really resonated with a lot of Latinos. And he talks about his personal story. This kind of American story of immigration his family, not directly him, but his family immigrated from Mexico, and he sees this. As a repudiation of President Trump just his existence being a repudiation of how the president is spoken about Latinos an immigration as a whole. Let's go back to your list. Osma maybe Tulsi Gabbard. So Tulsi Gabbard has said that she is running for president. She is not had the official announcement yet. But she did make this remark on CNN over the weekend. Tolsey Gabbard is a Representative democratic Representative from the state of Hawaii. She you know, I think sort of largely kinda came to fame a couple of years ago. Not just. Because of of her own politics. But because she resigned from her position at the DNC in order to support Bernie Sanders in his bid for the presidency in two thousand sixteen and she's been pretty closely allied to him seen as a pretty strong surrogate of his and now she's saying she's going to run for president on her own. Yeah, there's she comes with a lot of baggage. I mean, the fact that she had met with President Assad in Syria, some of her past views on same sex marriage and on gay rights. I you know, there's a lot there. I think the most significant thing about her is the fact that she backed Bernie Sanders and now just deciding that she can run against him. All right and another name Kirsten gillibrand Senator. Yes, the Senator from New York state who actually took the spot that Hillary Clinton had formerly when she was the Senator from New York Kirstin gillibrand has announced that she is forming an exploratory committee for president which is essentially the same stage that Elizabeth Warren is in at this point. She, you know, interestingly made this announcement on the Colbert show. And to me that just sort of speaks volumes of sort of how people are at engaging with late night shows in the way that they make these announcements, and these rollouts just the fact that that was her big announcement itself. You know, she she has not been timid at all so far. I mean, she's talked about the fact that President Trump is essentially tearing apart, ripping apart the moral fabric of this country, and she sees him as a sort of existential moral threaten, and she's been saying that shutting down the government is hurting people right now he's doing it because he wants his way if you're gonna do something like that. You'd better be fighting for other people not for yourself. You know, I think the real challenge for Kirsten gillibrand is that she is to differentiate yourself..
