How To Create a Stronger Mindset to Tackle Goals
"I definitely get into mindset itself and talking about stoicism the type of resilient thinking where the obstacle is the way instead of wishing for life without obstacles instead of wishing for short cut around the obstacles cherishing obstacle in knowing that is how we find our strength. That is how we get stronger. That's how we get better just like going to the gym. This is the jim for your brain. It's called alice. Static load in the body and the more resilient we are. The bigger are stress bucket. Were alice static. Load can be the more stress we can handle and the more stress we can handle mentally the more stress we can handle physically like pathogens and viruses and things like that and vice versa when we get better at physical stress doing cold plunges and hot saunas and doing fasting we get better at dealing with mental stress. So your body sees both The same those are alice static. Load another thing. That i would say there's really important is. If you're big. Goals are overwhelming. Start making small goals start raking them down into much simpler things start tracking things. Journaling things using an app. If you want using google key or evernote or something like that in just tracking things and tracking your small wins with your small goals. That's really important at the big old just seemed too big and break it down. Start making it simple. If your goal is for example to lose fifty. Which i don't think is a good good goal. I think a good goal is to fit into a certain dress or you know. Feel great about your body. Or whatever like i think a shift like. That's more important than getting caught up in a number but to i think breaking it down into smaller things you know like what's the dress size you want to get into for you know x weeks like those kinds of things like and or lifting a certain amount of weight by x. weeks You know being able to walk two miles by x. Weeks you start getting like your goals broken down to where instead of like one massive goal you have twenty smaller. Owl's and then. How good does that feel when he start checking off all these goals like wow. I can walk two miles. I'm in a smaller address. I'm you know able to skip mcdonald able to you know. Skip the diet soda. And have a joe pacheco. I don't know you know something like that. those are all meany wins but big wins that add
How Much Do You Know About Planet Mercury?
"Admit it isn't the sexiest planet. There's no atmosphere like venus. It isn't an object of exploration like mars. It isn't big like jupiter in. It doesn't have the beautiful rings of saturn. I'm guessing most of you haven't really given to thoughts about mercury. And i'm reasonably confident in saying that because most space agencies and astronomers don't really think about mercury either more on that in a bit i i should probably do a quick tale of the tape for mercury. Mercury is about point. Four astronomical units from the sun and an astronomical unit is the average distance from the earth to the sun the massive of mercury is approximately thirty eight percent that of earth. the planet has no discernible atmosphere. Which makes it more like the moon than any other body in the solar system. One of the most unique aspects of mercury is that a day on mercury is longer than its year. One year on mercury is eighty seven point nine earth days and one solar day on mercury is one one hundred seventy six days. Mercury is the second hottest planet in the solar system behind venus. The only reason why venus's hotter is that it has an incredibly thick atmosphere that traps heat. Mercury has no atmosphere whatsoever during the day surface. Temperatures on mercury can reach eight hundred and forty degrees fahrenheit or four hundred fifty degrees celsius. Whoever on the nightside of the planet temperatures can dip down to minus two hundred seventy five fahrenheit or minus one hundred and seventy celsius mercury was known to ancient peoples. But they didn't really know much about it because of how close it is to the sun it would only appear just before sunrise and the eastern horizon or just after sunset on the western horizon. The name mercury came from the roman. God mercury who was the messenger of the gods ancient china. It was known as the our star and in modern chinese korean japanese and vietnamese. It is literally known as the water star. The indians associated the planet with buddha and the day wednesday and the germans associated with the god odin and oddly enough wednesdays the mayan people associated mercury with an owl and thought that it was the messenger to the underworld

"Can guess which birds were learning about today. That's right owls. Owls live on every continent except antarctica. They are adapted to all kinds of environments. There are owls that live in a snowy tundra. Owls that live in the desert and owls that live in the rainforest they live in. Grasslands and forests to if a region has good places to build nests. It's likely that owls live there. Owls are raptors birds of prey that hunt and eat other animals. Of course this means they are carnivores. They prefer rodents raccoons rabbits skunks squirrels and even other birds. Small owls also eat insects. Owls can be a smallest five inches high or as large as twenty eight inches. Their wing spans can be between one and six feet across owls. Have flat faces and large. Is that face forward. They have hooked beaks and large feet with sharp claws called talons. They have short tails and rounded wings. Also the tufts of feathers. Some owls have on their heads are not ears. they're just feathers. The ears are on the sides of the owls head near eye level. Owls eyes are fixed in place. They cannot look to the side without moving. Their heads. Like people can to make up for this. Owls can turn their heads more than one hundred eighty degrees in each direction. So if they want to look behind them they can twist their heads all the way around. Owls hunted night. They are nocturnal. So naturally they have excellent vision. They hunted flight. That is to say they fly around and when they see a mouse down below them they dropped down on it and catch it in their talents. Their talents are made for grasping food and for perching above the ground. Owls are not good at walking their feet. Just don't work well for it not only do. Owls have good vision. They have excellent hearing. They have large ears covered with a rough of feathers. They're hearing is so good that they can hunt even in total darkness just by hearing their prey moving around owls also have interesting feathers. They have a thick layer of down under their feathers that protects them from cold. Most owls are speckled or mottled to camouflage them during the day when they sit in trees or on rocks to rest and the design of their wing feathers makes them almost silent while they are flying hours. Do not chew their food. They tear off pieces and swallow them whole they digest all the useful parts. Then they turn the bones and for other indigestible bits into little pellets which they regurgitate back up. Because owls are active at nighttime and they perch high up in trees where they are camouflaged. It's hard for them to see each other. For this reason. They communicate by sound. Owls make lots of sounds. They hoot of course but they can also whistle chirp squawk and warble they call to and answer each other males. Use special calls to attract females when it's time to mate the also dance and bow to attract a mate. Owls put on quite a show once. A pair of owls has chosen each other. They build a nest. Owls build nessin trees nook in a cliff in a woodpecker whole or even in the crevice of a city building the female lays her eggs when conditions are best so nesting season is different in the arctic than it is in the tropics. Owl eggs are not laid. All at once and the chicks can be born up to three weeks apart. Both parents incubate the eggs and protect the nest. Owls are most common in the americas. This species that live in temperate climates do not tend to migrate in winter. But the ones that live in the arctic usually fly south for the winter to somewhere with plenty of food. If you're very lucky you might see an owl someday. But it's much more likely that you will hear one when you hear the who of an owl calling. You'll know he's camouflaged somewhere nearby..

I got a second-hand version on Amazon but he picked this up off and the story is is basically about one night. These three baby owls. Wake up and Mom has gone. Okay. And they're, they're in the dark and they're they're in a forest and it's nighttime and and the three babies react very differently. But the youngest is is distraught and very worried and very much just cries out for Mom throughout the book. And and then, of course, mom eventually comes back after they try to comfort each other and, and do all sorts of things. Mom comes back. And I just love her reaction cuz she comes back. And she says, what's all the fuss? You know, she could come back and I remember, he picked up this book, and I read it to him. And he kind of looked at me, when I finished, she looked up at me and looked at the back of the little baby. And put his hand over the smallest owl and then just closed the book and put it back on the Shelf. But that will him, you know, he's, he's not baby owl, you know, as soon as this goes upstairs in high circles, the bathroom work goes to work.

I'm doing really well. how about you. i'm well thanks ya do. You want to explain as we get started for people who don't live anywhere near bc. And i've never seen it. What is old growth forest. Exactly and What does it look like sure. So old growth forest. There's kind of the the official definition. And then there's a y you think of when you hear the words old growth for us so the official definition is that on the coast where where the growing season is longer in tends to be wetter. That trees that are older than two hundred and fifty years are considered to be old growth in other parts of the province. It's trees that are one hundred and forty years old. But i think when when people think of old growth imagine those kind of icon ick photographs of these enormous cedar. Douglas fir trees that are as tall. Skyscrapers in is wide as a boss. The the old growth forest because the trees are so large the kind of the light filters through them in a different way they're draped in mosses and lichens and just kind of fallen logs. Over centuries have become nurse logs for for other trees but the the will growth force are much more than the trees. Of course there. Hot spots for bio-diversity their home to all kinds of species including a species at risk of extinction that to depend on these forests on the interior of b. species like a caribou on the south west mainland part of bc. We've got the spotted owl here on the island and other areas. We've got the marbled murrelet bird and of course these old forests are huge stores of carbon and they filter water.

How about yourself? I'm good, man. It's it's been a been a lot of stuff on your plate as of what this past few months, right? Yeah, definitely. It's been a very busy offseason as with every offseason, but this one specifically was a very long one, and a good one versus one, of course, of course. So times when you've been the Dallas fuels general manager since their inaugural season, all the way back in what county 2018 - 2017 is. Yeah, I mean basically as soon as the bell before the horse League I was still managing the Envy of watched T. I became the Dallas fuel season so page everything OverWatch have been from the start come and become Dallas Fuel and then being with Envy for four and a half years or something like that now so yeah.

What exactly the overhaul you revamp? The team from top to bottom dead. What led to the choice to go with this current I guess all all Korean right all Korean roster. Yep. Yeah. So basically you know, at the end of last season pass, you know, we obviously weren't happy with where we were, you know, always striving to be a very competitive team in any League. We're in an eight-game we're in and that just wasn't really the case with the roster, I know like the the team, there's a give it their all and really tried to to produce the results, but it just didn't happen. And we realized that this was the time where we could really kind of revamp and and change up a roster and dead. Since then we basically had the opportunity for the first thing and the First Foundation was to look at a new head coach and a new culture stuff in general. And after talking to Young, Who I was a nice rest with near the end of the season, obviously taken up that had cultural, he'd obviously had a lot of respect for a rush who was formerly purse turtle.

"Just looking around to see we have als going back. I'm almost fifty million years. And yet they look like modern f the case with a lot of bird groups i would say with so we don't have ancient bird fossils but somehow through some sort of science magic. We know that they branch off like sixty five million years ago. Yes and this is the final techniques to help make the bird family tree at time machine used a tool called a molecular clock. Where oh you know. When she mentioned that at the beginning they just climb into the time machine and then go back and they're like oh look elle's sixty five million years ago. No molecular clock is not a time machine. You can like shrink yourself down into a molecule and climb into what it does do is allow scientists to turn back time through dna. That's a very powerful way for figuring out went to species diverged. Even when we don't have fossils directly linking those two species. This sounds crazy like so. How does it work the molecular clock combines the two techniques we just talked about dna in fossils it puts them together into an equation that figures out how fast species might have changed between these two fossil examples so like figure out how long a second is on the clock. Yeah or like how many millions of years on the clock and once they know that they can take back the clock on all kinds of different bird species and find out when they branched off on that tree. We're able to essentially determine or at least estimate when two groups of species might have diverged. That's so clever. In this way scientists could complete the bird family tree and find owls place on it. So given that it's been all this work to figure it out. I'm assuming we humans didn't get to breed owls for their round heads and lack of nex and stunning eyesight and hearing no and it turns out our only bred in captivity to like help keep their species alive if they're endangered. I would say owls general are not. They're not a popular species for among humans. Well muggles of course. Not but always are popular among wizards actually asked got my own. Our question which is can owls deliver letters and packages tied to their legs. I've never heard of that. There may be some cultures that That do that. But i've never heard of an al returning in the.

"An owl. Fussell's do provide some pretty strong clues. The owls have been night owls for a long time. I see what you did. Their first of all also have very very big. Is you could imagine why an owl would have very big. Is i mean because it makes them look smarter like they're wearing a little pair of glasses. No they're using them to see it. Needs big is to capture as much light as possible so als actually seed night is being brighter than we do. Yeah they're night. Vision is amazing to hold those big is they have these bony rings in there is called sclerotic rings. That's a complicated words. Sclerotic rings but basically it's a ring of bones that help anchor the i in the skull. These izhak it rings are found in the fossils of ancient. Owls is well. We think it's a reasonable assumption to infer that if nocturnal owls today have large is then it's likely the fossil als did as well. So that's that's one powerful way by which we can infer behaviors that we haven't directly seen okay. So i think i'm really getting the bird family tree in the fossil connection so basically scientists are putting fossils on this branch all the way back to when great grandma owl split off from her common ancestor with other birds. Well not exactly wait what. There's a big empty space at the beginning of the owl branch. It's pretty black. I'm looking. I'm.

"Ago. They will have lots and lots of differences in the dna letters in their cells so the more similar the letters are the more recently. The birds became different species exactly so most related to their cousins. We think that eagles and possibly of vultures may have been relatives outs okay. So other predatory birds with big claws and screeching cries. Now that makes sense so if there are a lot of different species of owls now who was the common ancestor like the great grandma owl in. How do we know that she was nocturnal. That's a really good question. There's now around two hundred species of owls and they all have one common ancestor. So let's zoom into that bird family tree and draw an owl family tree off of it at the base of or al tree. We've got the single common ancestoral. Al species that al species diversion too. So that trunk with the original granddaddy grandma at will split into two leading to two branches. And if you can imagine that both sets of species have some treat in common like in the case of owls. Give both are nocturnal. We can make a pretty strong inference that the common ancestor also had that condition. So we what does he mean by an inference. It's the science word for making a conclusion based on an observation. Okay so they can assume that.

"The birds. All the birds are still with us today and they're thought to be descended from dinosaurs telling me that the story of owls goes all the way back to the dinosaurs. I did not expect that you might also be surprised that dinosaur times have a lot to do with. Why owls are nocturnal. The dinosaurs were diurnal cold blooded meaning. They can't really regulate their temperature so they have to be out during the day when. It's warm just like modern lizards today because dinosaurs could only be up while the sun was up. Mammals aka dinosaur food figured out that it would see for for them to be up while dinosaurs were asleep. They naturally became nocturnal so as not to compete with the dinosaurs. I mean that makes a lotta sense if they're giant t rex roaming around. You definitely. don't wanna be out while they're out then when an asteroid hit the earth mammals weren't just dinosaur food items the diversified into new species to fill the spaces where dinosaurs used to be but the species.

Is Biden Delivering on His Climate Promises?
"His twenty twenty campaign. President biden promised move fast on environmental protections. Now that he's been in office for a few months. How's he doing on that promise.

So far his administration is added eighteen new regulations and overturned twenty policies that environmental groups like the audubon society and the natural resources. Defense council opposed now toll. Cain they've stopped a coppermine from operating in arizona. After local native american tribes argued it could endanger sacred sites and sensitive habitats administration. Also pump the brakes on a decision to slash three million acres of northern spotted owl habitat. At least for now maybe the biggest decision. So far was ending the permit to finish the keystone excel pipeline. Which was supposed to carry crude oil from alberta canada all the way to the southern states in the gulf coast. Why is that a big deal. Well environmentalists were against the pipeline from the beginning over safety concerns and the increased greenhouse gases that the pipeline would release into the atmosphere. It also threatens the water supply and lands of the rosebud sioux tribe and other native peoples. Is there more work to do abso lutely. But everything's gotta start somewhere right

Take on the standard fairy godmother she avengers every slide against her and her goddaughter often at the expense of the girls rival another young woman who's been blessed by other fairies with beauty grace and talent. It's interesting to note common themes in delwan and perot's choices as they were contemporaries. The wicked fairy is almost always old and forgotten by the royals due to the assumption that she'd been lost to time. Her curses vary but they tend to involve animal transformations and last a set length of time and the person she's punishing is almost always an innocent. It is said that every fairy worth her magic had god child but getting one wasn't easy it required an invitation to opulent christenings thrown by fussy parents with a taste for gold and jewels. Each jerry had to present her gifts to the child which had to be equal in beauty and value only then did one lucky ferry. Get the job. Sometimes infighting between the fairies broke out and the entire castle was destroyed. Being worthy of a godchild was a tough nasty business. And it didn't matter a whit to carrabba's the one ferry who had never had a goddaughter of course she went to the parties and gave the children her usual blessings which reflected her dominion over the night.

The princess's cradle to present their gifts. This was a party like any other but all that changed when she saw the child when she looked over the edge of the infant's cradle everything the music. The dancing all faded away. There was nothing but the tiny princess looking back up at her carrabba's took in aisha's large round eyes and wide nostrils with the tenderest affection. She brushed her finger against the princess's soft skin admiring the rich black as warm and dark as a midnight lily under the summer moon. The baby laughed and the fairies heart leapt with joy.

I only got one thing for you. The polls are hitting me win of the year the first twenty point comeback in the nba. This season i saw some highlights from the clippers versus the spurs. They're talking could they be the first team to pull off a twenty point comeback. No they can't but the bulls did as a crazy game. What a night. In the kirby household bowls blazoned on the deck owl's blazers on deck election results trickling in on the computer a luxurious matchup out there red and black both teams january five going down in history. But this was a weird one. I said the bulls gave up a twenty point. Lead thirty nine point eight three pointers in the first quarter. Blazers look like they on fire.

Harness Light to Defeat the Winter Blues
"The winter blues can sap your energy disrupter sleep and destroy your concentration but turns out. There's a simple key a secret weapon if you will to defeating it and that's light. Welcome back to savvy psychologist. I'm your host. Dr wu and every week all help you meet. Life's challenges with evidence based research a sympathetic ear and zero judgment today. We're gonna talk about the magic of late for your mental health. Especially in the winter months winter can be beautiful time of holiday. cheer gorgeous. Snowshoes escapes and fun activities like sledding and skiing but even with all this fun. Some people can't help but experience. The winter blues their mood takes a dip in the fall and winter. Even when life is otherwise going well and for about three percent of people this mood downturn is so severe that they have something called seasonal affective disorder. They not only feel blue but they also experience loss of interest in things that they usually like unusual tiredness or sluggishness trouble sleeping a tendency to overeat and gain weight difficulty concentrating and thinking clearly and even feelings of hopelessness or sometimes even having suicidal thoughts. So why does this happen. And is there a way to beat these seasonal blues and seasonal depressive episodes. The secret might lie in light. That's right this free resource that comes from our son. Plants rely on soaking up light to make food and grow but it turns out that we animals need light to our biology is so wrapped up late. That are metabolism mood. Thinking are all affected. So here's some things to know about. Why light is important for mental health and how to harness it for better health and happiness especially in the winter months first thing to know. Is that our mood is intimately tied to light the winter blues and seasonal affective disorder. Don't just happen to people because they don't like winter. There's actually a biological reason for winter. Depression and here's a clue. The people most susceptible to winter induced depression are those living far from the equator. And that's because living. Farther away from the equator means you get even fewer daylight hours in the wintertime and because there's less daylight during fall and winter. The body's circadian rhythm gets disrupted. Late is the single most powerful factor in tuning the spotty clock and with less and less of it as we move from fall to winter the body's natural rhythms can become less robust. So that's bad news for your mood. Metabolism cognitive functioning and many other body systems that play a role in depression. It's also possible that less sunlight leads to a drop in serotonin of brain chemical that's for regulating moot. So the good news. And that's the next thing to know. Is that by artificially adding light to our lives. We can actually combat the winter blues. Numerous studies have shown that something as simple as using light box can decrease symptoms of seasonal affective disorder. Ideally you want a full spectrum light source such as the light box designed for this treatment by even a very bright ball from the hardware store can help so. The standard treatment involves using the light for about thirty minutes each morning if it has a brightness level of about ten thousand lux or for about one to two hours if it has a brightness level of twenty five hundred bucks for comparison ten thousand locks is on the low end of ambient daylight whereas an overcast. Day is about one thousand bucks to avoid hurting. Your eyes don't stare directly into the lake instead. Have it off set about thirty degrees from gays and about two feet away. You can have your breakfast check email or enjoy morning. Podcast like the savvy psychologist. Perhaps while you have your box on bright light therapy improves your mood. By regulating your circadian rhythms and increasing serotonin. What's especially great about this treatment. Is that it can be easily combined with medications or other treatments without interfering or introducing side effects. There are studies showing that bright light. Therapy can be combined with taking an antidepressant for an extra boost. Even people with year round depression. We talked already. About how bright light can improve your mood and decrease symptoms of seasonal affective disorder and also just general depression year round. Now let's talk about how it not only helps with the winter blues but also would sleep and daytime fatigue so when it comes to sleep bright light. Therapy may have an even more direct effect often. Those with depression especially seasonal depression also have later krono types meaning that they are biologically wired to want to sleep and wake later than the average person this means. They're dealing with a double whammy during winter. They have both a depressed mood and a harder time getting in the morning. Luckily doing bright light therapy first thing in the morning can help to shift night. Owls biological clocks earlier improving how they sleep at night. And how alert and refresh. They feel in the morning.
Managing your time effectively
"Let's talk about time then. In the next thing i was thinking about what are some effective time hygiene or time habits that we can about to institute in the new year. And you know there's just so much of this thinking in the entrepreneurial world that the idea is to just go out there and to work all the time to sort of sacrifice other areas of your life. I caught myself seaney. Lan must describe how he puts ninety hours a week into his business. And i have a hard time relating to how that's possible and the reality is it's i almost feel like a little bit ashamed to it in the light of how this kind of hustle culture is so glorified but i spent more time. You know working on businesses. When i had a job and i sat in a desk from eight. Am in the morning until seven pm at night. Then i do for the businesses that we've run together and part of that is having good time hygiene and focusing on the things that count tell you what my trick is. Dan and it has been the last three. Years is just have a kid because that will clean up your act immediately. It's kind of a joke but it's kind of serious which is like there's a limit now on my time. That was never there before so when people had said to me in the past like oh man. I got so much more disciplined with my time. When i had a kid. I can totally relate to that so i guess what i would try and tell myself before is like how could i engineer that into my day like pre kid because actually used to pull it on must end like you used to make fun of me for it. You'll be like oh. This diesel just like sits down for like twelve hours and the reason i did that is because i kind of enjoyed it and one hand but on the other because i was like super inefficient and the way that was approaching some of these problems so it worked out because they didn't have anything better to do and certainly that's a okay position to be in. If you want to sit there for twelve hours you can do it. If you don't have much else going on which i didn't but now i can't afford to do that so i just have to be a little bit more deliberate about the way that i spend my time. It's weird because like besides being braggadocious on youtube about it. No one's keeping track of this stuff anymore and no one cares right and so it doesn't matter whether it takes fourteen hours a day or four. It's really a matter of practicing the fundamentals simply asking yourself. Are you being efficient with your time if your being efficient with twelve hours a day and what you want to do is grow the biggest company in the world and become the richest person in the world. Then more power to you. Know that's really cool a couple of things. I mean for me. My time hygiene habit in two thousand and twenty one is calendar in a lot more and the strategy essentially is time boxing and time. Boxing is an approach. That leverages parkinson's law which suggests that task expands to the amount of time that you a lot to it and this is particularly true in knowledge. Work and men. You've been through this a million times. Essentially you finished the task by the deadline. Yeah and especially in knowledge based businesses where there are these moving grey lines as to what constitutes being finished. I think time. Boxing is a really excellent approach. The so typically in my calendar has been only for meetings meetings blank space and in two thousand and twenty one. I'm going to get more serious about time. Boxing and putting in projects deliverables deadlines and areas of focus in the calendar. You know one of the small examples started happening in our businesses one of our team members. Alison i would set aside an hour to work together on our sales literature every week and it was simply a matter of like. That's a time hygiene thing. This is a very important thing it tends to get put off and we think it's important so how about we just work on an hour week together and keep each other motivated. This is something. I really wanna explore in two thousand and twenty one interesting. I mean that is a real example. And that's something that we've talked about behind. The curtain with our businesses like ourselves pages needed to be updated. And i like the conversation that we had is like. This is an ongoing project. And so you know with these habits. Die ideas like identifying what's valuable and then making it a habit one of the thing. I'll add to hygiene dan and this is something that i implemented in twenty twenty as it relates. A time is a bedtime. I to stay up really late and i know. Sometimes you're up late to text. You still be up but it is rare. These days dan that i stay up twelve thirty. The reason for that is because i get up later and then i can't be productive during the day as much as i'd like to be. I don't know. I guess this is being part of an adult or something. I don't know. I've always kind of you know moon lighter on the night owl. The best stuff happens at night really. It doesn't for me the best things that happened at night or like more interesting so i cut myself off. And this is one of the habits that i implemented for twenty twenty. I'm looking forward to in twenty twenty one as
How small stores are cutting through the noise from the big-box stores this season
"Are a business show. So yes we're going to start with what today means for a big chunk of the economy retail because the deals extravaganza. We still call black. Friday has actually already begun. The pandemic has a lot of us. Rethinking our shopping. 'cause we really wanna live in a world where only the big national chains survive. A survey from at taxi found that seventy five percent of shoppers planned to make an effort to shop local. This holiday season marketplace's kristen schwab reports usually this shopping weekend at territories in austin texas is one big celebrating and they walk in. They think they've joined like some mosh pit of Toys shoppers sylvia edwards says the general manager children running up and down everywhere loud music. You know noises from different toys being played with a cacophony of magic madness. And so it'll never get like that this year and not just because of social distancing territories has divided shopping hours. Grownups only ten to four all ages. Welcome four to six. The store is also offering night owl tours. Private appointments for shoppers after closing. You get a whole hour in the toy store and then a little personal salesperson that walks you through the store shows. You are twee workshop where we still cut wood and make toys. These are the kinds of personal touches. That could help. Small retailers cut through all the noise coming from big box stores. Disol- the keller at mintel says traditionally a third of shoppers to most of their buying this weekend and the message from retailers. She says is that they hope to see even bigger numbers this year. Basically start thinking about your holiday shopping and now because it's just only going to be more of a challenge to get what people want on time. The goal this season make day an occasion to shop. Frank reese who owns acapella books in atlanta is doing that with extra virtual book clubs and author events. A lot of our business in normal times. is not in this little store.

Releases feels like a ton of extra work and going completely against the whole idea of lts, which is a stable platform is not right moving all the time as someone who doesn't care how hard you have to work I think it sounds like a fun idea but. To be honest, the gnome desktop experience isn't really why care about I care about the desktop experience and just having the latest version of no all the previous lts I don't feel like that would give a better desktop picks think you'll be able to capture all of the new things from the next the coming forward in the next lts and back port the whole thing and make it.

"owls" Discussed on Nocturne
"A. There's no animal more emblematic of the night than the owl. Of course they're nocturnal, but that's not the only reason they're also ephemeral and mysterious, keeping their distance from and tree branches, and on posts, showing only glimpses of themselves before vanishing a silent flap of wings. Their power and elusiveness are endlessly intriguing, and those giant piercing eyes inspire both fear and awe. To connect with an OWL, even in a small way is a rare gift. In this episode we have two stories about our relationship with these iconic nighttime creatures. The first is a short atmospheric memory from Jeff Weltman creator of the KCRW podcast. Here be monsters. In the summer before Jeff Started College, he was living at home and rural Washington state. He found himself biking home from a nighttime job painting an apartment building on top of a hill in the center of town. It was around three a M on a hot summer night. Had this tiny, little underpowered headlight on my bike, and I had a speedometer on my bike back then and I would go down this hill and see how fast I go before I got too scared. Feel like it was like twenty or twenty five miles an hour, before I always got too scared, and I started pulling the brakes, and then I would wind through my home down past the grocery store past the laundromat and pass like the one or two blocks of downtown that we had and head out of town on the east end. End You get into rural area real quick as soon as you leave town. And so suddenly there were no street lights I would then get on what we call the highway two lanes with a yellow line down the middle. That's where the sky just opens up. You see the Slough of the two hills in your writing down the middle of that down this like straight flat paved road, and then there's off to the right. There's just telephone pole telephone pole telephone pole, telephone pole telephone, call telephone pole on K. goes off into the distance. It was hot. It was a dark night, but I. Don't think the moon was out at all. No lights just my bike light. It was just enough to kind of cast like you know how bike lights do that. There's like this kind of patterned areas of light and dark bike lights cast. It's never like a perfect headlight. Cars do the same thing it's like can of just this pattern that you get used to see eight just enough to see like the road in front of me, and then the telephone poses. They passed, and then like a little bit of field on either side. I saw something I thought I something on one of those telephone poles by wasn't sure the twenty feet to my right and it's souped up. And I I I. I looked up into the telephone pole. And I realized there's a bar now. And I watched it. And it jumped off the telephone pole right as I was next to it, and it's swoop down again next to me and was hovering. Just he was gliding just inches above this field, and it was hunting hunting with my bike light. It was watching the grass below because my Vica that wide beam and it was able to use my bike light. It's kind of an artificial moon. It was faster than me. Though so it's swooped up to the next telephone pole and waited for me Agai- just sat there, and then I approached again. You know I was going slower on my bike. I approached again, and it hopped off again, and we continued this dance where it would, it would swoop down and look for mice and little things running through the field as I was going by, and then swoop up again and wait for me on the next telephone pole. So, so as it hopped off like as long as a solid hop off and glide down I would see how fast I could pedal to see if I could keep up with this hunting our and every single time. You know it would be me. It'd be me to the next poll, but it would wait for me. It would wait. There you know and it's like. It's like using you for a second and you like a part of this. For a moment symbiotic relationship almost like you give the owls something, which is a light to hunt with for half a mile or a mile, and it gives you this experience of. Raptures the wrong word. Sublime is overused. Is over used to. You know what I mean. I can't think of any other word aside from kinship, you know you feel kinship with this thing that like wanted your help for a second, and it feels so nice to be needed for a moment by something. That can't even talk to you, and you can't talk to it, but it needs you for a minute. Yeah, so can go and murder a mouse you know. I'd never noticed before. But maybe it happened a bunch of times before I. Don't know and I, just never decided to look right at that single moment. But after that always looked for it when I was biking home in the middle of the night, I would always look always look for. More of hours in the night from Nocturne in a moment..
