"pun c. t." Discussed on The Mini-Break
"Code is c. r. Fifteen with that in mind. Let's start with the women. Because i suppose this is a pun but it's also going to serve as the title of today's podcast bianca's back and i'm not talking about her back injuries. I'm not talking about you. Know issue going to be healthy. Moving forward simply put. I want to enjoy the bianca address. You we've seen these past two matches in miami. It was a spectacular three-set. Set win for her on saturday over a mandate knee simova and us were wondering given the fact that she was facing perhaps the hottest player in the women's game right now ingar bean muga rusada would interest. You be able to hold up physically. Would she be able to bring the level she displayed in indian wells in two thousand nine hundred and at the us open in two thousand. Nineteen that top tier. I can beat anyone when i play my best level regardless of who they are two matches in a row and the answer to that question was a resounding yes bianca andress q. Maybe the win of her career given the context i know she won a grand slam final. I know she's beaten osaka. I know she's beaten serena but i mean her three six six three six two victory over gar being muka ruth about as impressive as you can say given the context of her win and you look for andress q now. She six in three in her last fifty two weeks. She's played three events here in twenty twenty one her first three events since the nineteen shenzhen finals. And you know for her at the australian open windsor. First round loses see in straight-sets. She then plays the phillips island trophy event. That second week in australia beats bryan gould. And beg you big you. Seven six in the third before losing a seven five in the third really fund match physical match against marie booze cove and again given those were her first competitive matches in a year. That's a really good for showing her to come here now. Beat martin sova beaten anisimov and beat garbin muga reuther. Am i ready to say. She is fully back folks. I don't know if i'm to say that. I wanna see her three four five six weeks in a row. I'd like to see her play full healthy season but it's just a reminder that if healthy bianca andress you is in the conversation with kenan sri on tech osaka already grand slam champions but with every player in the mix at any event. She plays if healthy she's capable of winning at. She's got that sort of town her ability to attack off of both wings. Her you ve never seen someone. Turn as fiercely into a backhand as you have bianca address q..
AVA App Project With Nicholas Giudice And Richard Corey
"I'm really excited to introduce richard cory and nicholas giudici. They're working on the uva abd project which will help open the door. No pun intended to autonomous travel for individuals with disabilities today. We're going to learn a little bit more about them and about the technology that they're working on nicholas richard welcome to the show. Thanks for having us fish you guys. I'm really excited to kind of talk about this technology and how it can really help folks but before we do that. Could you tell our listeners. A little bit about yourselves yes sure. We're from the vami lab at the university main. This is laboratory that's focusing on human technology. Interfaces we've been in existence for twelve or thirteen years now nick nyerere been collaborative partners on this for that time and we almost jokingly say that we have this academic marriage but Yeah we were studying the way in which humans interface with the technology in front of us and we do a lot of work into way. Finding especially blind visually impaired assisted technology. Been doing a lot of work into virtual and augmented reality and how to use some of that technology to assist with you know even simple tasks like writing a bike for example in the fog. Yeah we've also started to move into biotechnology as well as a little background so we bring kind of an interesting background to our studies. My background is experimental. Psychology and rick has a background in lots of things including interactive design and collaboration. And so we're really interested in and we're in kind of a computer science department broadly defined. So we're really interested in saying. Well how can we take. Knowledge of human understanding human interactions and lead to better technology and information access and so we tell them very strongly from the human side and also from our own first person experiences. I'm congenitally blind. And so i bring a lot of my own phenomenology of my own. Use of technology frustation frustrations with technology frustrations with information access into the types of things that we designed to be multi sensory you mentioned bio inspired designs. How can we make technology be more like how our brain works using all of our senses instead of just visual design.
Building a More Diverse and Inclusive Academia With Shaz Zamore
"Really want to share. Maybe what if if you have seen changes between when you went through grad school or university and what you see happening today in terms of you know being a woman being a woman of color being being non binary woman of color. Can you talk a little a little bit about the good things that you're seeing happening and how they compared to maybe some experiences that you've had. Yeah yeah so so i. I did identify as women for most. I've always identified as gender queer. But like i've i've occupied women's spaces and had that experience for most of a career and i. It's it's a tough question so it's changed and it hasn't changed. There are definitely. I've seen a lot more top down. I've seen a lot more Administration and kind of structural changes that go in positions. The committee Just this focus on evaluating truly evaluating. How faculties students are are engaging in participating in diversity in in most importantly inclusive efforts which is a cultural shift Not just numerical ship. So i've seen a lot more of that and that's really great. I think it's feel personally. It might just be where. I am in my career and the kind of accolades. I have behind me at this point. But i feel much more comfortable speaking out when something is not okay than i did before I feel like even. If i was an i often am the only black person in the room and somebody says something and no pun intended off color. I feel like if i were to stand up and say something. My white colleagues would be in support rate. That's something that. I think certainly didn't happen to grad school for so that's nice. I like to see that. But then there's also i think we haven't quite had the collective realization about how much has to change War to to actually make a truly inclusive environment And so in that frame. There's kind of like at the individual level at at like the bottom up like who however we rallying to really care about that that's still lacking again because i think we frankly just don't sit down and have the practice of thinking about what the future is. What's it gonna look like. What's what's the classroom physically going to look like. what's lecture actually going to contain. How all of these things. It really sit down and quantify so much scientists as thinkers. But we're not sitting down to quantify what that actually what's it gonna look like. What the end result. How do we actually predict. There's no practice of that And so it's kind of like this. Big hand wavy gray mass. We're like yeah. We're making it better but you. You can't actually make it better if you don't have a goal in mind and so there we really need to see that progress still feels like we need to have some inclusiveness you x. specialist user experience versus to kind of model. What it's going to actually feel like for the for the users war in this case the the students. Yeah question are there. You've you've had to clearly from what you're saying deal with some some some difficulties some exclusion in or you know in your in your path. But were their strategies. Were there things you did or poor people in your path that that were helpful and that you can You know the yeah. They were helpful with that. And are there. Is there some advice for someone who's now at this institution or even in this group sometimes. It's just there's group dynamics writers group culture that is those somehow not so accepting and and that's that's difficult. Is there some advice you can give based on your experience of overcoming these obstacles and coming out stronger after yeah and my advice is echoed by research have a support group has abort group has support group having support group. Have people you can go and go back to your base code. Go back to that natural language. Drop your guard you know. Be yourself be really comfortable. You gotta have those the especially as any sort of minorities especially as intersectional a have your support group for intersectional people. I will acknowledge it. Super hard like for me. For example. Black spaces aren't always queer friendly spaces. Queer friendly spaces aren't always black friendly spaces as really hard thing to navigate. Still even if you're not fully relaxed even if you can't find a black. We are space for example at combination. Even those little bits that you get steps to single person even it goes so far There was one fellow who i think about as mentor. I can't i know his name is added. can't remember his last name but he was a new faculty. he was working in molecular biology at u. Dub i was in bio so we were in the same hallway and i would see him in the hallway. We kinda wave at each other walking by and then when he pulled me aside we just started chatting and anytime i saw him. We would just like stop in the hallway and chat for two or three minutes. Maybe we got a coffee and it was just this idea. It really created this sense of of of culture for meaning academia of what. I really nurtured a thing i needed. And it set the precedent right. Like here's someone. When i see someone frequently you're part of my community. I should have relationship with you to some degree and so in that that. That's someone that i think about a lot. That's a it's a behavior. I think about a lot. How can i bring that forward And i think things like that are also really important like looking at how people give you the cultural needs. Meet your cultural needs and how you can help that with some. Bring that to somebody else.
We're A Bunch Of Jerks!
"As a nickname for the soda clerk who operated soda fountains as late as the nineteen fifties. The soda jerk was a title inspired by the jerking action Server used to swing the soda out handle back and forth when adding soda water fountain bedroom. Are we sure people didn't just not like him very much and because most of my quits today is going to be based on soda jerk stuff. This is the first ever jerk off so soda. Jerks prepared milkshakes and other treats using drink mixers that featured spindles and agitators to fold air in for smooth and fluffy results served. Tall glasses soda. Jerks were charged. Not only with preparing delicious treats for customers but with entertaining them as well. The responsibilities were many such as breaking and draining and one hand carving chicken remembering orders pulling the correct spigots and spindles on their drugstore soda fountains but most of all the new york times reported. The prime requisite of their station is the ability to bandy words. Okay like t say weird slang bumpy not not only bartenders but talkative. Very very talking and like fun. New slang and without the alcohol without the alcohol it's hundred entertain. People that are sober really. Is these guys managed it though because soda jerks became known across the country for this kind of isotopic slang hosting wordsmiths with gift for puns and rips at a time when the united states was nuts for all things ice cream. It says the terek shea something new so every they were all nuts for everything ice cream. They were at once. Consummate showman innovators and freelance linguists. At the drugstore stage rights michael carts welts of the american driving quote. American soda jerks became the pop culture star of the gilded age. I hope they were cunning linguists if they have any chance in the patron quiz. Oh so the colorful jargon. The soda jerk verbal shorthand for calling out. Orders is part of putting on a show for customers. The orders consisted of the method of preparation the number and size of the order the basic soda fountain item and any special instructions such as shake one and a hey and spit on it now. Don't don't spit on my food things. So that is a strawberry shake with raspberries on top. Oh shake one in the hey which means raspberry or strawberry shake and spit on it. Which means respite spit on it mean raspberries or to spit on it mean raspberries because that guy's comes never stopped Berries or read a little bit of this is gross. My hands were full. I only keep the raspberries and my mouth. Maybe it's because he's been punched in the face of often as bit as red lake raspberries down to the bar with old bloody lip. Soda fountains had a handbook of recipes. They had met a memorized called. Mr boston's guide but also hundreds of variations were created on the fly by the creative soda jerks. I've a cool picture. That is a lovely stocker. That i used on our website once cool. Yeah probably. that's what i thought. It was a real bar. So i made it a background image. Later on it became a dive bar right so by the nineteen fifties capitalism unfortunately all but killed old time soda fountains the increase in technology and the wyss to expedite helped push the jerks out the door. Yeah that and they were jerks but by then diners. The new big. Hang out the good old greasy spoon of your was the replaced the soda fountains but they kept some of the same language in peppered in some of their own. Yeah the ones with roller skates. Still brought you a milkshake. Yup and they also had some cool jargon and slang that they use themselves so similar visiting a foreign country where is not spoken diner. Lingo is virtually unknown outside of the united states. That makes perfect sense. I never really thought about it but it does make sense. I mean it's hard to come up with worse slang for something. That's already called spotted. Dick you traveled to. Ireland and scotland is uc diners there. I didn't i think that the only place in europe you could probably find an american style diner where they use slang thinking somewhere weird and germany. What is the irish term for boiled with cabbage country. You go to you go to some small local pub type restaurant type something like that. They all have slang because kitchen focus. Kitchen be light hearted tongue in cheek and sometimes even risque phrases could be heard in wide use in busy diner during the nineteen twenties continuing on well into the nineteen seventies. So a bulk of that time. All of it steve was alive. Well i mean it. It lows continued on into the eighties and nineties. Because didn't jordi lafforge do like a diner. Lingo thing on reading rainbow or some crap. I generally the fords did reading rainbow. What a couple years ago. There was something about it was the face of of a bunch of the more you know shows for a long time literally never watched it never heard of it. Didn't know he was on. Burton is a main just. Maybe three years
Editorial Book Reviews: Getting Reviews for Your Book
"The value of the review of a book first of all it aids in third party credibility having somebody else say hey. This book is great is a way that browsing customers or potential readers are going to be a little more susceptible or a little more willing to first of all. Purchase your book or even more so. Read your book also. Getting reviews helps out with marketing. Because you can go out. And say hey. My book is amazing. But somebody else says that. Your book was amazing. Can grab a little quote. Their fair use folks. We go to share that on out there and say hey this is. This book is great. Says i dunno engelbert humperdinck that whoever might be was probably not a great example. And there's also another theory when it comes to reviews it also helps out in search engine optimization because by having even more data on your product page or put with your book online it will generate more traffic and more discover ability now again. That's a theory especially over on the amazon platform. So now we've gotten the reviews part out the way. What about editorials book reviews. What the heck are those. Is you hear this quite often. Some people are like well. There's no. I don't know anybody newspaper. I don't know an editor. How am i supposed to do this. No contra independent book review summarizes at best when they say this i'm going to read it verbatim. An editorial book review is unbiased. Reader focused review of your published or soon to be published book often used by publishers on marketing. Material book covers posters and on the editorial reviews section on their amazon sales page that lasts parts a really nice one in. We're gonna put a pin in that because we would come back to that probably towards the end so what is an editorial review like this varies per platform say that ten times fast varies per platform and it really depends on what they offer most instances and aditorial review with specific service sites. They tend to have more discerning readers and people that are going to give you a more detailed review places like qurqus in union square review have readers who picked every last detail about your book. Apart that includes cover design the ad. Copy ak your book description. Your titled choice content everything. It's very very detailed. The nice thing about a to'real refuses. They make him really good long. They're not gonna be like your normal amazon book reviewers like this was a great book review. I gave it to my grandmother. I loved it that type of review just doesn't really cut the mustard when it comes to third party credibility you really need someone who says precisely what this book is in why they enjoyed it. Or maybe why they didn't enjoy it and then with that at a tory review. You're able to kind of have some information that you can use his marketing collateral in. Put that out there and get it to where people potentially by more now. There are some other forms of editorial reviews that are not as professionals. Let's say as qurqus or a union square review. I'm not gonna point any figures one specific but let's just say that A blogger posts a review about your book on their website. Technically that's an editorial review is. It's an outside source. Maybe some unused that blogger as an expert of some sorts of that definitely qualifies as editorial review. All right so you probably saying yourself. It's all well and good dale. What's the cost is a no. This is going to be getting to glad that you said this. They'll stick around folks. Don't listen to the like the the. Oh i heard the number how much it's gonna cost and just to now because they're going to share with you how you can be able to select what's right and what's wrong. You most times editorial reviews the cost as little as fifty dollars to as much as five hundred seventy five dollars or even more depending on how much you're going gonna be buying as far as the quantity goes to be clear when you get an editorial review that usually does not consist of them doing the review and posting it on amazon. No no no. No no no. Because that's buying reviews. Its getting to get against terms of service over on amazon. So they don't do that. It's okay. i think you understood that though Editorial reviews will be simply something that they're going to share on their website maybe to the email list maybe to their youtube channel so on and so forth. You're just able to take the editorial review and place it where you would like a few of them on top my head here. I'm going to kind of go through. Some is not an exhaustive list. But i want to kind of give you an example. Reader's favourite k. Probably not my favorite site no pun intended when it comes to buying editorial reviews but they do offer a free editorial review that you can get through them really nice score to reader's favourite. Pick up you'll thank me
WIRED Correspondent Adam Rogers Talks 'Wild Tech' Built Into Perseverance
"So adam. Let's start with a couple of notable things about this rover one. It's collecting and to you. Just wrote a story on wired dot com this week about the cameras on perseverance and how they actually perceive imagery much differently than we do. Tell us about this. And why this is significant for this mission will. there's something almost philosophical. You have to address if you're going to send not people to explore another planet but robots which is you're trying to acquire like sensory information and some of that some of that can be quantified can be sent back as data. You know the numbers for certain for certain analyses that you can send an instrument to do and i. I can talk about some of that but some of it. Is you want to send a robot that can look at stuff that can hear stuff in this case they can sense this world. And then that that information through the sensory organs the mechanical sensor organs the technology. That you send the microphones and the cameras and the sensors instruments and then it has to get home has to get back to us somehow. Us not wired reporters but jet propulsion laboratory and then the whole vast team of humans who process all of that through their own machinery and then it becomes something that they can that they can look at. Its this this. Arc of how data becomes information and then becomes knowledge so we humans send these robots to mars to some extent to learn how to send better robots to mars a lot of the instruments on perseverance. That's the rover that's there now are versions of instruments that went up on other missions and now they kind of the scientists that jpl and are all these universities. Nasa know how to make them work to do more what they wanna do which is to look at their surroundings in ways that that we humans would would. Would i be able to identify easily as looking at stuff to to see things in the colors that human is also see we were standing there and also to look at them multispectral hyperspace literally and other parts of the electric spectrum that human i wouldn't perceive but the eyes of this rover is in scare quotes that i'm making on a on a screen even though this audio medium so that's not helpful at all. The eyes of this rover can see into the little bit into the ultraviolet partway into the infrared. And and also can see x-rays and have an are using a laser project light outward to obliterate some bits of rock. And see what what happens when you do it. And to listen with microphones that that might be more sensitive than human ear. Then all of those things get get reduced transformed or changed in some way into meaningful knowledge so that we can understand more about what what's on this other planet where humans have never been but humans have sent a lot of our stuff. You're saying that each brand has gone up tomorrow. At least the ones that we have had progressively better technology on them with each version. And i think it's kind of interesting that this rover that just went up now. Perseverance is essentially the first rover of the iphone era. Curiosity launched in two thousand eleven and it was designed for a period of five or six seven years before that so the imaging technology on it is very representational of like that time in imaging technology the imaging technology that we have now and the imaging technology that we have on. Perseverance is pardon the pun astronomically better than the tech that we had ten years ago. I mean if you think about like how bad your instagram photos. Were in two thousand eleven. And how fantastic they can be now. You can see just like as far as mobile technology goes and just imaging sensors. The leap has been huge. That's a it's a really interesting observation. I think that's right. Although i will also say that like one of the one of the instruments that i wrote about is called the masked kim z. And so it's this. This binocular camera to cameras linked together left and right eye on top of the tower. That's on the rover so sits up a little. Bit high zina's presume because there was a mass cam on curiosity the z. Has zoom capability and it does a bunch of stuff. It's there to identify targets of interesting scientific potentially interesting scientific value and also to be able to look around and navigation and take pictures and do a whole bunch of other stuff. The the ccd the charge coupled device the optical sensor the to in mass are off the shelf kodak cds and they have the they have in front of them the bear pattern of pixels. The probably gonna get this wrong but like the red green blue. I think that that's that would be familiar. That if you if you could look into your phone you would see it. And then mass games does what. The experiment instrument is take advantage of some capabilities that our phone cameras. Don't really do to do much more. Because because the also can see into the infrared a bit and so if you put the right filters in front of them you can do even more science with them so there is some sense that we send up a camera. That would be the same camera that a lot of people have in their pockets right now sitting on their sitting on their desk. I can get sort of derivative about but there's something important i think in the pictures that are starting to come back already. That include parts of the rover itself and people will describe those as celsius as mars selfie camera taking pictures of itself and and nasa among all agencies is very very good at At its own promotional work saying like. Here's the thing. Here's the picture of the thing we're doing. There are pictures. There's video of the landing which was dramatic but also like the video of the landing. Is there to video of the landing has engineering value but also publicity value. But but i think the calling it. A selfie also includes the recognition of the the. It's not personal because of course it's not a person of the machine hood of the individuality of the humanness of the technology that that we sent that has to do a thing there. That's doing technological work and and seeing mars through a kind of filter that's akin to but slightly different than the filters that if mike if you took that billionaire ticket up tomorrow how you would see through the visor of your of your back suit
As COVID-19 ravages the world, closing the digital divide is more critical than ever
"The digital divide continues to be. A massive problem made worse by the coronavirus. Pandemic things are especially bad in appalachia. I'm roger chang and this is your daily charge sina is once again taking a look at this problem. Our series crossing the broadband divide and story in the latest package. Takes a look at the unique problems in appalachia a region with some of these slowest access speeds and accordingly lows incomes in the country with us to talk about. This is editor. Ray hodge welcome. Ray hey roger how are you so to kick things off. He gives us a sense of how big the broadband gap problem is in this area. I loved do that if we could actually find that information out in an accurate way and see. That's the that's the core problem. Isn't it the the big core problem here is that we don't have a full and complete rendering of the map of this digital divide because for many years. Now our our mapping has focused on deployment and not speed or actual access so while we have information about what census tracts have at least one connected household in them. We don't actually know. How many houses in each one of these census tracts is connected end accessing broadband much less whether or not they're getting the speeds that we normally classified as high speed broadband right and so we are looking at numbers that are probably severely. Undercounted the sec report which came out last month said that the number of folks who don't have access to broadband when down to fourteen point five million from about eighteen million a year ago most broadband experts. I think almost all broadband experts including the federal government and folks on the fcc all agree that that number is probably dramatically low and undercounted And and there's been a lot of issues you pointed out with the data behind these broadband maps that the fcc charge of some changes coming and we'll talk about that later later in the but let's let's get back to your story because you take a look at the appalachian region specifically you grew up in kentucky. You still live near louisville this curious. What broadband access has been like for you your family and how. It's changed over the years so we were based out of eastern kentucky. My family was and we've moved away from there. So i'm i'm what you would call the gas for the appalachian diaspora but i didn't get Internet in central kentucky until the same year. We got city water. Run out to our place somewhere around nine hundred ninety eight something like that and even though of course it was it was screeching -ly slow. Pardon the the the dialup pun. But yeah it's been intermittent right so it's taken that long to get it and where i live now in louisville i've got one gig fibre pay around sixty dollars a month. Which is the national average but there are still people out in the areas. Where i used to live in where you know. It may cost him one hundred dollars a month to get dsl equivalent speeds. It's insane the disparity there but growing up with This sort of Slow crawl towards access. It's remarkable to see what progress has been made because there is some but it's incredibly frustrating to see that after decades. This is still happening. These these problems are still happening. You're still dealing with a basic infrastructure and speeds. That are nearly unusable when it comes to like that so you talked a bit about the map and faulty data behind that but what are some of the other issues that has made broadbent hard to come by in this region so we've got a constant narrative going on where it's always sort of presented as a problem with hilly terrain and were unable to run lines or the the issue is often kind of bought and sold by that narrative. And that's really that's only one small part of the equation right. It's not just about hilly terrain because we've been able to make all kinds of technological advancements in these areas all kinds of construction industries like the mining and coal industry have no problem navigating hilly terrain. So you know. Mountains are not necessarily the thing that is always stopping Companies running out there a lot of the times it has to do with the fact that When it comes to infrastructure it has to do with the fact that it's not as profitable for for companies to run lines out into rural areas right even though they may be picking up subsidies and there was some fraud that had gone on in different rural regions By companies historically who claim to have all these people connected and then didn't so that's one part of it the infrastructure politics behind that the other part of it is that there are two digital heights right. There's one which is i. Don't have the lines. I'm divided from my lines. The other one is. I'm divided from the ability to pay for it which is actually the bigger digital divide across rural and urban areas.
"Grading Jason's Predictions" - Episode 040 - burst 3
"You said that the cubs would miss the playoffs that year. Two nine hundred and you were corrected fell apart. The bears would make the playoffs in two thousand nineteen. That obviously do not happen and that you would do the dishes at home. You would be nicer. Oh wait that was. One of my predictions never mind. We'll we'll take that one off. Okay i like this here. The end of the summer early fall of two thousand and nineteen are episode. Qb or not cuba's mitch trubisky with nfl networks. Charley casserly. You predicted that kanye west album would come out the next day and it did it. Did that was the day before homecoming. Yup and how do you feel about that that last album so the album suck don't know i i can assure you as they come out. They came out that day at school. I remember right after a test. All right you also said that the bulls were going to make the playoffs and ridiculous and absurd. Possibly forty six wins. Yeah now that has not been happening. Has it all right. We move on then to the cubs new manager episode twelve david ross knock grandpa rossi and that was with author. Dan yeager that joined the show. You predicted that. Zach levine would do the dunk contest in chicago. He'd been not He's not he was going to if you made the all star team and he was stopped so technically i was wrong but he had every intention of doing it until he got from the all sorts of you also predicted that the grammy nominations young thugs albums. So much fun would be not in. I had a huge problem with the grammy. Nominations that you back to back years the rat. Nominations have been just absurd so that didn't happen and actually a lot of Very well well versed people in the music world no pun intended Thought that that album should have won the grammy and it wasn't even nominated how That was incorrect. You also predicted that kris. Bryant would be traded that offseason which would have been prior to last year's pandemic season which obviously did not happen. But maybe it should have right. Maybe you should have happened. Oh no absolutely should have happened. Yeah exactly all right. Let's go to our giving. Thanks on thanksgiving. Two thousand nine nineteen. We did not do predictions. That was a mini episode in. Which you pretty much ripped everyone that you've ever sat next to in my family during thanksgiving that made a lasting impression on my family. Let me just tell you that episode. Fourteen back to david ross. This time with the interview. That i did with david ross. You predicted that. During the winter meetings the sox would sign dallas kaikal. And they did. They did and they did. Yep you also said that they would make a trade for a controllable player defined that and they did make changes. So would you identify someone as a contract player. Think back That they would trade her controllable player. Okay so they did not. But what the dallas cycle was pretty darn big so i'm gonna give that to the clinical moods pretty big. I think should get credit for that.
Why Now Is the Time for Infrared Photography
"I have one two three walks. That i take daily in every time i head out the door. I have a camera with me hoping to capture something new and unique. These walks important because my jobs as a photographer have all been crushed by the virus. And i haven't traveled for work since march twenty twenty so each day. I hope to see something new to record and possibly share with others in lately each day. I've been disappointed. So one of my friends herald is a big fan of infrared photography and he's shown me a lot of different things that you can do with it to go beyond what i've dabbled with the years so i go all right. This is kind of exciting. So i decided to revisit. What's happening in. I are and to tell you the truth. What's going on right now. Blew my mind. It did in the me excited about my daily walks again now. The big leap that i took this time. And i'm gonna talk about a pun intended the full spectrum of photography In a few minutes here because you can start versus simply. I done that. And it's very satisfying and then there are more options and more options more options and each time you go to that next set of options everything gets a bit more exciting but in the beginning any of it is exciting. Believe especially compared to probably which you've been doing or haven't been doing lately the big leap that i took was guinea my hands on a olympics. Emt mark three that had been converted to full spectrum by kalari vision now. Kalari vision is a company There about three companies. You know three big name companies. That are doing these infrared. Conversions and kalari vision is my favorite of the three. I have a camera by them. I've talked with them. I mean these are terrific folks and they really know what they're doing and all you have to do is click on the link in the site and you can go over there in you know read All sorts of background information really understand what's going on with infrared photography learn about all the filters learn about all the cameras you know by converted cameras. Get your camera converted. I mean it just goes on. And on and i'll go into more of that right now but when i referred to kalari vision that is the company that is doing the work you know for the gear that i'm using and they provide the filters that i use with that gear so getting this ten mark three converted to full spectrum camera just opened up this whole new world for me beyond what i had experienced before with. Ira photography because by using different filters a different points in the wavelength I was able to create completely different effects for example now on i take those daily walks over familiar territory which i'm doing still right because things haven't really changed to tell you the truth. It's like i'm in a different world each day on monday. I can shoot with a seventy two filter for stunning. I are black and white photography and then on tuesday take the same walk with the i. r. chrome filter and get something completely different this delicious world of complimentary oranges in blues. So every day is new. Thanks to photography. And now i'm excited. I'm excited i'm excited to go on the walk. I'm excited thinking about okay. How am i going to approach today. And because you don't know how certain things are going to look until you actually look at them through the camera. It's like this adventure in. You have like this magic set of glasses to unlock the view into this different world. And sometimes i'm very surprised but what i see. Sometimes you can kind of anticipate a little bit. What you're gonna see but every time it is then fresh and exciting. Now this backup a little bit on you know getting started with. I are so you can start small and ease into i r or go big with the converted camera and then you know there's like lots of options in between what i'm going to do now is give you five helpful tips about. I are photography to help you. Kinda shape your approach right now anyway and then you can plot your path forward after that but kind of help you figure out where to start right now with this if you are indeed interested in it. Here's the first thing you can test an existing camera for i our sensitivity. Some cameras just right out of the box are more sensitive to the i. R. part of the spectrum then other cameras. Which is you know the i parts of the higher end of the spectrum. I have like for instance one of those. It is a older fuji film. X twenty is just a regular x twenty s a little Range finder camera. That will super popular when it was out because it was small enough to put in your pocket but you know it packed some really nice kind of professional level features in it so. I've always liked this camera. In fact i believe it was the first fujifilm's digital camera i own so one of the delights with this camera is that it also has pretty decent i are sensitivity
Feed Yourself Like You'd Feed a Loved One
"The topic of what. I'm supposed to be eating has taken up way way more of my thinking than i care to admit. I have spent an embarrassing chunk of my adult life plotting and planning new diet regimes. I spent hours fantasizing. This time i really will perfectly adhere to that. Unnecessarily uber strict new eating plan and i- inevitably become sad and disappointed. When surprise surprise. I fail again to live up to the superhuman dia goals. I've set for myself. Because i then feel like i wind up comforting myself with whatever off-limits food. I was trying to limit in the first place. And that's why. I was so taken by andrea on her work. She knows exactly will all. This feels like because she went through these very same behaviors in worse for years. I think it's really important to be open about the troubling relationship that many of us have with food and eating but knowing you under his personal history. I was a bit nervous about asking her to share all the details. What was once the biggest shameful secret of my life now my career so there is kinda nothing. I don't talk about anymore because there's no shame anymore. Because i know it wasn't my fault and i know you know it was all passed down innocently and having found a way to climb out him. I'm happy to share what i've been through so that permission. I asked andrew to explain her journey towards eating with greater self compassion beginning with our very earliest memory of when body image and disordered eating took over her life basically. I started dieting. When i was about twelve years old and it was the first time i remember having someone comment or say something shameful towards my body up until that point. I don't really remember thinking all that much about my body. Even though my mom was and still is a chronic dieter. But when i was about twelve i got teased about the size of my eyes and i call it a dart in the heart moment where something happens and you feel terrible about it. Usually terrible about yourself usually make decisions as a result that are not generally healthy or helpful. And so i felt terrible about my body decided that i needed to lose weight and i started my first diet and like i said. My mom was already dieting at the time. My older sister already dieting. And i just hopped on what i now. Call the diet. Riot roller coaster. So talk about what it was like to be on that diet roller coaster inside well once i started obsessing it was this constant soundtrack and it colored my life. Now some people can die. I call them. Lightweight dieters pun intended some people can diet and it doesn't take over their lives and some people. It's a real huge obsession and leads to problems. And then many people that leads to full-blown eating disorders. And that's what happened with me. I just became obsessed. Which is the natural response to dieting. I started sneak eating all the food that i wasn't supposed to have on the diet and had huge weight fluctuations. I did have a life. I went to school and i eventually went to college. I had lots of friends and summer jobs but on the inside. No matter what i was doing there was this constant soundtrack of what i was eating what i wasn't eating what someone else was eating and not eating. What my buys. Look why. Compared to this i just was constantly obsessed and that really colored my my life so the sounds like a horrible soundtrack to turn on in your own head but here we are at the start of the new year and so many people are willingly jumping on this diet. Roller coaster tell me kind of how that makes you feel as somebody who studied this for so long. Well it's sad because it's kind of the solution that people are given and even though the diet industry is hugely successful and multibillion dollar industry that continues to grow it's got pretty much a ninety five percent failure rate. People think that they themselves are failing that they're just failing the diets but really the solution that were given to body image issues and to binging or overeating is to diet and the solution that were given the diet is part of the problem. So i feel sad about it and i. i know what it's like to spend your life obsessed on food and going to parties and not being able to eat what others are eating or what you really want or eating out of control once you quote slip or break or go off the diet so i know that only too well and i also know what the effects of dieting are. And and there's the it'd is a roller coaster. So what some of the negative behaviors you noticed in yourself. You talked about your obsessive thinking but did you also have behaviors. That made you worry that something wasn't right. You're on this kind of strange roller coaster. Oh absolutely. I snuck eight constantly. I tried to eat what. I had deemed good foods in front of people and then naturally a what i deemed bad foods or what i was taught were bad foods. I would throw food away in an attempt to get rid of it and then get it out of the garbage and eat it again. I mean just they call it in alcoholics anonymous and the twelfth step arena. They call it incomprehensible demoralization things that i never dreamed i would do. There were times. I would steal people's food when i was out of control with food
The weirdest stuff at CES
"Joining us to talk about some of the most unusual stuff it's es this year is usa today tech columnist. Jennifer jolly a jennifer. Thanks for being here. Oh my gosh you guys. Thanks so much for having me. I love talking about weird tech. It's my favorite thing. All right so what was the weirdest thing you saw this slightly different. Cas where we all were covering it. Virtually yeah well we're just. It's it's going to be a tie between toews poop detective toilet. You heard that right and i mean please. Just start with the puns. Now i call it number two on my list healthier future based on what you leave behind get ready to be bulled over from the latest data dumb. I mean you can't you can't make this stuff up. What does it do. Tell me you you. You've you've peaked. You've peaked. My i can't think of a good pun around the top of my head so i'm going to give up. He's flushed with excitement about this. There you go there you go. Okay so todos newest ai. Smart commode is a sensor filled. Smart bowl aimed at detecting early signs of disease based on just imagine doing air quotes key outputs so it will analyze everything from how long you sit on the throne to The temperature of your skin as yours just sitting there to whether your stool contains enough fiber and then it will send you recommendations on how to improve your health via app on your smartphone showing gives you solid output. I caught up with you guys young so there we have it so that's got to be one of the weirdest last year. I talked about There was some gadget that analyzed your cats poop to let you know about your cats health so it was just a small leap to human health based on. You know looking into the future by what you leave behind. Yeah i'm gonna stop now it totally but you know it really it really make sense because you know how they've said. Some universities were analyzing waste on campus for covid spreading around so anyway so you mentioned it was a tie. So what's the other weird thing that you that at the top of your list. The bio breast milk. You guys remember last year when impossible pork basically got all the headlines plant based bacon that actually tasted really really good. Well this is again with the pun. The mother of all new high tech smart foods bio milk is a customized cultured breast milk. That is made from cells of a pregnant mother than cultivated in a lab to reproduce human milk. But it's personalized for that specific infant from that actual mother. So it's a way really. And i mean it sounds crazy but female Cell biologist female food scientists founded this company to create an alternative solution to formula to the packaged powdered formulas. We've been using forever because three out of four moms. Have some reason they have to stop breastfeeding before the recommended. Six months so it could be work. It could be health related. It's stressful any nursing. Mom knows it is one of the hardest jobs you will ever do. Toss in pandemic and working from home in teaching your kids. I mean it's really really hard in the best of times so that is just something i can't i couldn't believe it when i heard about it but i'm excited to see it. Come hopefully this year. So let's get to some of the really cool stuff that happened in the s one of the things that i've heard i'd heard about were these bionic contact lenses i think. Can you describe them. They sound really cool. Yeah it's called mojo vision. It's an a. Are embedded contact lens. That is as close to a bionic accessory as i could ever imagine. There's a teeny tiny display. It's half a millimeter in diameter. That's about the same size as a grain of sand that's actually embedded within the contact lends itself and then it projects images and information really subtly. You really take your attention away from what you're looking at but it projects that into your peripheral vision as you either. Walk down the street or cycle up a hill or even look up into the night sky. It's absolutely mind blowing at this. Was the winner of css last gadget standing. And that's an event that i have emceed for the past several years including this year i had not seen not mojo lens until video that the company played during the event and i had to pick my job up off the desk. I just cannot believe this kind of futuristic far out technology is actually here and the company told me they're going to launch this For people who are visually impaired. I and follow up with a consumer model. They have to go through all kinds of of fda and f. like all kinds of regulations because it is a contact lens. I e a medical device but they are looking at two three years out with these. Maybe less sounds like something. I am i on medically go to the goes. Terminator two were you. Were you got to see through the terminator's eyes and stuff was coming up on the side and you're like wow that if that could happen in the future yeah not only could is will. We've seen it. We also saw the music's glasses that do something very similar. But they're a pair of glasses so the difference is a contact lens and a pair of futuristic super cool smart glasses nice beyond products. Were there any trends or big takeaway. She took from the show this year. Jennifer there was a lot this year. You guys have already talked about this. A lotta pandemic tech germ killer. Everything's from target as new anti microbial backpack to special lights. I saw ub techs. Giant robot can rule through rooms shooting off giant rays of uvc. Light to sterilize a room so huge huge emphasis on clean tech mask tech. You guys wrote about the airpods mask. I have that with me where you know. There's a little disc on the front of it that connects with your smartphone and can give you all kinds of information about the air that you're breathing. How much your breathing. So that was a really really big trend and then also just comfort more comfort and this big buzzword this year delight at home figuring out ways to bring basically your whole entire world inside the walls of your home or even your backyard and have it be a lot better to hang out. There in the future will
Furniture Finishing Q&A with Mike Mascelli Finishing
"This questions from chips. Stoltzfus and chip. If you have anything to do with. Stoltzfus is restaurant in lancaster. Pencil or no bird in hand pennsylvania. Oh country i miss that place dearly. All right i have been a professional woodworker for almost twenty five years. I started out in a large making church furniture and have since worked mostly in smaller cabinet shops. In that time every finisher. I've ever worked with said that you shouldn't san to sand higher than one. Twenty or one fifty grit. They claimed once you get higher than fifty polish is the would not let stain it here. Like it is designed yet. I often hear you talking about standing to three twenty or higher before finishing all of the shops. I've worked with have had have used wiping saints with some type of lacquer. Topcoat is the difference in sanding due to different finishes. I've started using rubio. monaco. And i've noticed that it gives a smoother finish if the piece of sand to the higher grits. Thank you for your time and great work with the pun. So well i've heard this many times Thank you for asking a couple of things that i think we should just sorta get On the table it matters a lot. What kind of would you're working with More so even than the than the finished. So if you're working in oak or mahogany and really open. Grain pours wood particularly oak. You can get away with a lot of stuff on on course grit sandy because you have such deep pours and lines in the in the in the grain of the as it is if you're in maple or you're in cherry It's a very different game. So you have You're talking about church furniture. A lot of that furniture's oak. Yeah in a production shop setting you're gonna send this stuff with a production machine may be a big stir machine dual pad sander And you're going to get this stuff out the door because you're in a commercial setting so sanding to a one twenty or one fifty you're leaving fairly significant scratches so in in oak if you see a neatly along the grain those scratches won't be as objectionable if you're using wedding stained product. I'm holding this up for the folks that can't see this. This is a mohawk wiping stain product. That's pretty typical you. You'd see in a commercial shop and this is mostly a die product. That doesn't have a lot of pigment in it again. I did a a article which we coming out and find woodworking here soon about diane pigment but die think about the like a strong food coloring or t it's going to penetrate into the would as much as it can whatever the would will absorb and that's what you get. A pigment is nicely ground fine particles of nice dirt so the pigment if you had it in a wiping stained product or know a commercial setting if you're gonna put die on it's going to absorb what it's going to absorb and that heart and twenty grit sanded. Surface is going to absorb guy and the grooves of the santa scratches are going to absorb a little bit more die because you have the sides of the of the valley if you will open if you have a pigment in your in your stand mix if you have deep scratches like one twenty scratches the pigment is gonna lodge in those scratches so what we always say in. The shops are if you sat at one twenty and uses a pigment stain and you see and at a higher grit. The one twenty grit is going to appear darker because more pigment is gonna stay behind when you if you do a white walker if you leave it there because you there's more places for the pigment the lodge there's there's more surface area right. There's there's a valleys of the sand scratches the pigments going to go in there and it's going to stay so if you take the exact same piece of lumber and sanded at one twenty and seeing like to and stain it. It's going to look darker at one. Twenty okay is that to twenty. So that's one aspect of the of the the higher grit sitting as far as this business about polishing the. Would if you see end up high enough if you take a piece of maple cherry and you sanded up to four five six hundred you'll create a surface. That's almost like this piece of plexiglass. It's very very resistant to anything. Even the dies so it really is true. If you stand up too far you will. You will resist the action of the die penetrating and of course there's no place for the pigment to lodge so it's going to look very very light so to to well. I always say as a rule of thumb is that the middle ground here is to twenty okay and there's two reasons for the to twenty one for the color and once for the fish on the collar side if you're sanding at you know eighty and one twenty and one fifty whatever it is if you don't sand perfectly each grit progressively you're gonna leave one hundred grit scratch someplace so if santa to twenty neatly it even if you leave one hundred grade or one hundred fifty grit. Scratch somewhere in that pattern. It won't be noticeable because the to twenty will help smooth that over the other reason for the one on the finnish. Side is if you leave to twenty grid scratches most finishes at two applications. You know a couple of dry mills of finish most finishes will bridge to twenty scratches at one twenty. You gotta put a whole lot of finish on there to get it to bridge the the valleys and in the case of church furniture. It didn't matter you know if it's oak. You're not going for a full pour piano by finish so it's okay you can leave him at one. Twenty it doesn't make the finish. Grab any better I mean you need a little bit of tooth for like the modern era things and stuff even this rubio other than lacquers which melt into each other. You need a little bit of tooth and usually in between the coats is when we would send three twenty okay so the bare would prep would be bringing up through the grit. Says you need to Up to about two twenty as a rule of thumb in most woods an inbetween your coats of finish. If you're going to scuff in between that would be at say three twenty at the most if you go too much then it's true you're finish isn't gonna would here so Also if you do test boards now sanding at two twenty the you're you're you're staining will look differently if you finish at one eighty or one hundred question Particularly again if the if the caller i will call it. Disdain is sort of or ginger. If the color delivery system includes some pigment those pigment particles that powder dirt is gonna lodge in those poor in the pores of the wood and in your scratches and the other thing is if you're going to sand rough if you're gonna leave it at one twenty or one fifty you'd better stand really really neatly with the grain. Is any them cross grade. He's gonna show up like a scar. A so special pigtail swirls from iran. A morbid sander and again give you some some advice on that if you're standing up to two twenty with a random orbit i'm gonna really good ones. There's air powered ones in. There's there's an electric ones even really good to twenty random orbit. You're gonna get little swirly marks. You can handsome those out but you got back up to one eighty. Okay get those swirly marks at back up to one eighty on a hand block get the swirlies out and then hand block at two twenty so use your random orbit to get most of the work done in and try to minimize the swirly marks but if you get those little squirrels you've got to send him out yet. Backup one grip. I've i've recently started doing christian beck's method of. I think come one fifty or so. He pulls the pat off the ran more but does a hand pass them one. Eighty four but paul's pat off does a hand pass is is even. If you're trying to clear the swirlies out okay. The other thing that can help is a lot of these. Random orbits now the new ones. The lyrics are adjustable. Speed variable-speed ara. Are you supposed to change that speed. I've never touch that knob. Where do you run at high on. Fast or slow. Whatever it's i have no idea. I've never thought about that. Phnom well if you put it now all the way fast you're going to remove a lot more material and you're gonna leave more swirly marks if you put it all away. Slow was gonna go. Roy moore and you're not gonna get good standing action. So somewhere in the middle is better and slower is better so i would say sand at the slowest speed. That's effective for what you're trying to do. Okay you will minimize the squirrelly marks if you said at full number ten You're not only gonna not gonna have as much control of what you're seeing but you're gonna leave more swirlies
Introduction to Cob: The Ancient, Natural, Tiny House Building Method with Dave Olsen
"Am here with dave olsen olsen completed. A cobb workshop led by younto evans in nineteen ninety-six and has had mud and sour dough on his hands ever since he began hosting natural building workshops in two thousand seven began instructing the revolutionary fast cobb mixing and building methods in two thousand nine and turned fifty in twenty thirteen based on off the grid. Sketti island he also hosts an apprenticeship. That goes well beyond natural building. Helping people develop responsible and environmentally sustainable lifestyles with enjoyment and ease. Dave has been very fortunate to have worked with many of the leading. Cobb builders of our time and to have a dynamic cobb and bicycle loving daughter and dogs dave olesen. Welcome to the show. Thanks so much for having me either. Yeah it's great great to have you here. I feel like we've been following each other for years and years And we've we've traded some email so it's great. I'm actually getting to see your face for the first time here on the zoom. Yeah thank. i'm so glad to finally connect directly likewise like why so we're going to have to start with with the real basics. What is cop well. Cobb is a mixture of sand clay and straw that you mix together with water. So it's a it's a very simple Creation some people might say that. It's you have to have a specific ratio of each of those ingredients. I don't the the one ingredient. That's unbelievably flexible. As the cly or should you can have as little as five to ten percent. I don't know exactly how little you can go. And all the way up to one hundred percent though. The smallest amount is the amount that is needed to make the sand stick together. And the and the straw okay. So and when you say percentage you're referring to the percentage of the clay in soil the material that you're using to actually build the walls. The percentage of that material so anywhere between five to ten to one hundred percent lay in. I say one hundred percent. I've never built with one hundred percent. Clay only because A wonderful man who came to one of my workshops told me about it and showed me books and in korea. They've been building klay houses for hundreds of years. And so maybe even thousands of years so it obviously worked the but cobb specifically is designed to be The material is meant to have Sanding in it so so you know if you don't have very much sand that's okay. You have a lot of clay. that's okay but if you have a lot of sand and not so much clay it has to stick together of course otherwise. You're not going to have a building that stands up so you know very Nonspecific answer of because at least certainly in the workshops but in my own personal experience we just experiment with what we have to make it as easy as possible. Because that's really. The goal of this is the not only make something. That's unbelievably resilience. Long-lasting nontoxic unbelievably hugely outperforming. Any other building. That i've ever known but just to make it really quick easy and simple as possible. So i guess my follow up question. We've got the kind of literal definition of. What is cobb run. I guess what is ours. Cobb used in homebuilding it. What do you what do you do with the cobb. yeah Literally like you can see you re up there that those are called walls so in the building that i'm sitting in i live in The walls and the floor omega of certainly don't recommend building a roof out of conned Simply because cobb will absorb water and when it does absorb it will loosen or lesson it strength and so Building a dome out of cobb is would be a foolish thing to do in the climate. I loop in live in and i don't know of any climates. Actually were be suitable. So i wouldn't try that. So certainly some non cobb materials are needed for any building that you do build but the vast majority of the material for this Building this house is cobb because the walls are afoot to eighteen inches thick and Run from florida ceiling and the floor is completely off. The second floor is all. Would i considered putting a cobb floor on top of a wooden some floor but the same principle even though it's inside very likely to stay perfectly dry but if it doesn't or if there's a lot of vibration i just haven't tested a second floor cobb floor so you know out of my realm of experience but But yet no to lessen the cost of any building if you build it cobb. It's guaranteed to lower the cost. Because literally cobb is thirteen so i love the pond and i invite you to make as many cobb puns as you wish. This interview are there any climates. I was gonna ask what pilots do clock. What climates does cobb work in but it sounds like almost i should ask the opposite like are there any clients that cobb doesn't work in. I would be surprised. If there was a climate that doesn't work in Really hot climates. It's amazing in terms of keeping the building. Cool because it literally. It's just a totally different kind of building than what most civilized people are used to right. We're used to often wooden or metal buildings that kinda shredded trap. The air at least for heating and even for cooling i imagine condos and do that conferees It's constantly breathing. It doesn't it's not drafting. You feel it breathing. The air can get through the walls and Some very very slow transfer so you never get sick building syndrome in a call building which is really nice and The way that it performs as it. It's like a thermal battery so when there's heat in the air around it it will absorb that heat and Old it basically until the era rounded is cooler than the cobb and which case than it releases eat so it really moderates the temperature especially of the inside of the building that of any building. That's made out of cobb. So and that's what. I'm just enjoying in our climate here. We have a climate where in the extreme parts of the summer. It's quite warm. It can get up to thirty degrees celsius and probably over one hundred degrees fahrenheit and it's never uncomfortably hot inside our home ever doesn't matter how hot it gets outside in the winter. We we don't have a deep freeze At all so not makes building foundations here easier but It still gets to be about raising and between zero and ten degrees celsius all winter. And so and it's very humid so it's still quite cool in terms of human living and so we have a rocket. Mass heater that keeps our floor are cog floor which then emanates that keet throughout the home and so our feeder was warm or bodies are warm and the where cobb comes in is overnight when the fires coach the cov will Emanate warmth back into the building so even though it can be down to zero overnight In the morning it's bill sixteen degrees inside the house even though it was only maybe twenty twenty two degrees when the fire went up
New GPT-3 Models Can Generate Images From Text
"Open a has introduced two new. gpt three models. The first is called clip. Which can classify images and categories from arbitrary text. The second is more interesting. It's doll e which can generate images entirely from snippets of text coding. The it technology review for all gpt threes flair. Its output can feel untethered from reality as if it doesn't know what it's talking about that's because it doesn't by grounding text and images researchers at open a and elsewhere are trying to give language models a better grasp of the everyday concepts that humans used to make sense of things dolly and clip. Come at this problem from different directions. At first glance clip contrasted language image. Pre-training is yet another image recognition system. Except that it has learned to recognize images not from labeled examples in curated data sets most existing models do but from images and their captions from the internet. It learns what's in an image from a description rather than a one word labels such as cat or banana clip is trained by getting it to predict which caption from a random selection of thirty. Two thousand captions is the correct one for a given image to work this out. Clip learns to link a wide variety of objects with their names and the words that describe them this then let's it identify objects in images outside. It's training set. Most image recognition systems are trained to identify certain types of objects such as faces in surveillance videos or buildings in satellite images. Like gpt three clip can generalize across tasks without additional training. It is also less likely than other state of the art image recognition models to be led astray by adversarial examples which have been subtly altered in ways that typically confused algorithms even though humans might not notice a difference instead of recognizing images dolly which i'm guessing is a wally slash dolly pun draws them. This model is a smaller version of. Gpt three that has also been trained on text image pairs taken from the internet. Given a short natural language captions such as a painting of a capybaras sitting in a field at sunrise or a cross section view of a walnut dali generates lots of images that match it dozens of capybaras of all shapes and sizes in front of orange and yellow backgrounds. Row after row of walnuts though. Not all of them in cross section and quote. The results are apparently striking. Maybe not as striking as when gt. Three i got everyone's attention a few months ago in the show notes. There's a link to the open. Ai blog where they show you examples of what this ai can achieve. You can also use the tool. Apparently to generate your own images. Sam altman had it draw an illustration of baby shark in a wizard hat wielding a blue light. Saber and it did it though. Apparently the tool was neutered. Just a bit. So people couldn't produce porn with it still as daniel rack tweeted quote. People think is coming for truck drivers first boy. Do i have news for you and quote and as a laser.

Come up with a list of all of the podcasters that you would be interested in working with from podcasters that are similar level to you as far as audience size in the amount of time. You've been doing it all the way up to the a-list celebrities of your space create exhaustive list of all the podcasters. You'd be interested in working with and as you're brainstorming. Who that could be. You want to keep two things in mind number one. You want to make sure they're a good fit for your audience when you invite them onto your podcast that it actually makes sense. That actually have a food if you are talking to somebody who doesn't eat food. I mean i can't think of anybody off the top of my head but if you find somebody who doesn't really like food even if they have a million followers on instagram they're not gonna get fit for your audience so you want to be mindful of that number one the second thing you want to consider as does their podcast have a similar listener. Years does is their audience. Overlap that you're going to be able to tap into when you actually pull this collab- off so actually thinking through people that you could potentially collaborate with sure. They're going to be other food based podcasts. And that's kind of low hanging fruit no pun intended. But some other podcasts. You can reach out to would be ones on emotional wellbeing or if you talk about. How eating together affects relationships. You can reach out to relationship or marriage. Parenting based podcast where there might not be a direct correlation but the kinds of people that are interested. No subjects you know would also be interested in what you talk about on your podcast. So don't just limit yourself to the direct podcasts. That are just like yours. Think little outside the box but make sure that there's a good chance that whoever listens to that podcast would also be interested in yours. Tip number two is to pitch each person on your dream list into doing a collaboration with you and as you're brainstorming the kinds of people you wanna work with. You'll also wanna be thinking what is the best way to get in touch with. This person is their email address. Is it social. Media is a contact form on their website. Is it super tactic here. They're linked in profile or their hatred on page both of those platforms have better response rates when people are reaching out cold and then when you do pitch them make it a win win. Make sure that they understand you. Were showing up to give to them and help their podcast. And just as happy side effect your podcast will also be helped if they feel like they're getting more out of the deal than what they're giving to you and they're gonna be much more likely to say yes. Be excited about jumping into this collaboration with you now once. You've agreed to do a podcast. Collaboration with another podcast. How do you actually do that. What does it actually look like. There are three main ways. That you'll see podcasters go about this. The most common one is the guest star appearance where you go on their podcast as a guest talking about the things that you know best and then they come on your podcast as a guest talking about the things that they know best. And when you go and you guessed are on each other's podcasts. You really overdeliver for each podcast audience and then at the very end you let them know. Hey if you want to hear more or if you want to hear this person on my podcast then click this lincoln. Go over here. So that's the most common way. Just be a guest podcasts. But if that isn't really going to work out the time is not going to work out. You can't really find a good time during the week to be able to schedule that. Recording one of these other two strategies can work as well the first one is a podcast takeover so this sounds like really violent. All that means is that you were dropping an entire one of your episodes into the other person's podcast feed and then they're doing the same. So if i have a podcast. About serial and ashley were doing a podcast takeover of each other. I would jump on your podcast and you would share a full episode from my serial podcast and then likewise i would share a full episode from your dear food podcast and what you would typically do as the host is recorded intro. Talk about why you're sharing this bonus episode with your listeners and then released the episode in its entirety. And you could sync up the releases with the other podcasts. So that you're collaborating in taking over each other's feeds at the same time and then the third way that you could do this and this is a little more creative is to record a podcast segment for the other person's show so ashley let's say for instance you're doing a podcast about cereal and i have a serial podcast so i'll record a short six minute. Podcast segment that you can drop right in the middle of your episode talking about. I'm
Facebook's Future with Mari Smith
"We're gonna be talking a little bit about facebook's future in some of the things that she seen going on there's a lot happening privacy's sort of a big thing right now which will touch upon but lives video groups all kinds of stuff. What's the biggest thing that you see right now. That's really changing. Facebook that marketers need to know and then maybe we can get into some of the specifics of those things that they need to know. Murray absolutely well you just mentioned privacy and it was just double checking the day and it was march of two thousand nineteen zuckerberg mark zuckerberg kind of like almost like out of the blue is a little unanticipated. He pandas mega manifesto his privacy manifest doom. And everybody's talking about always. The pivot to privacy am own kind of interpretations of why this came about. You know what's the longer term. Play here that sucker. Berg is up to in it was in essence of there was an aspect of it was in response to the potential antitrust is also just getting pushed into like Know all the regulation components of i think eventually the whole social media landscape. We'll get regulated. That's inevitable just like radio television newspapers. It's inevitable so that's coming at some point and this is Kind of anticipating that in. What's fascinating to watch okay. What is the pivot privacy. Meanwhile they're doubling down on focusing on the three main messaging products that what's out being the biggest one. And then messenger which is really the number one messenger gap into the us. What's up number outside the us. And though they compete with apple i messages is pretty popular around the world and then the third one is instagram dragged in so zuckerberg in that manifesto use this word interoperability numerous times. We're just talking off lying there. Baking together familiar with that. If you're headed by the way my dad was a professional. Baker starlight bake cakes cupcakes stuff. So here's basically baking together. These three main messaging apps are products in essence. So they can kind of like not be in big more difficult so he can stand up there in goal no but no all of our users and our businesses our business. You know advertisers and customers. They have to be able to have these three products together and then but he's not saying out of course what they're seeing public facing which really we can all buy into. It's like hey yeah pun. Intended customer goes to instagram. He's looking year. She's looking at your shop owner. Gosh this item the go they buy it and then they're like but they tend to use what's out for two chatting or managing people and businesses. So they can their customer service. Follow up there asking questions. They can choose which inbox going to land in. What's up is direct or messenger. That's the aspect of interoperability. What's coming to is the ability to actually make those purchases inside any of those three inboxes in get the kind of the follow up. And then you've got that whole aspect of the chat baugh automation continues to be developed. So yes that would be. The main one is really. We were also talking about ecommerce. You know ralph. I know that area you focus on your agency and its ecommerce mobile commerce. you know. it's taken a leaf out of the. The books are the apps of asia's doing predominantly china. There's huge huge apps that entire operating systems inside of one one app. Don't see each being the biggest one of them but i think marketers today really looking towards developing their twenty twenty one plan. If you are in remotely in the world of e-commerce you have something to sell. But my point is there's a distinction here between physical products because that's almost always what facebook instagram ten to differentiate. They bring it all these features and it's shutting up shop earlier this year. The they just call it facebook shop. But it's now kind of streamline so if you have facebook shop it also is sitting right there on instagram and you can integrate with their partners right like shop of finding one of the main ones and so but were they've come right out and said is hey we recognize there are service based businesses and there are digital product based businesses and they're quote unquote working on solutions for all types of businesses. So i'm excited about that. Those those of us do digital product services. Yeah and you kinda started answering the question. That i had mario in terms of you know based on facebook trying to start baking all of these programs together. Have you seen that kind of come together with the programs that they've started in twenty twenty four businesses that are needing help during the pandemic and businesses. Maybe that are not so product centric and maybe more service centric like would have you seen happening with those kind of being a pulled together through the programs that they've started this year. We'll some of the real easy ones that they slipped in earlier in the year was like adding sticker onto instagram stories. Were you could users could recommend their favorite shops. Our local stores stick her in tag. The instagram account. That's made it made a difference to small business. I would hope so also like really trending hashtags hashtag support small business. They also june july of this year really emphasized. Hash is on facebook now. It's a whole other topic. I wrote a blog post about it. Hashtag of thing on facebook since two thousand thirteen so after seven years like okay. Now it'd be a good time to make them relevant on facebook. So i'm recommending to all my clients and students not in audience members is to go ahead and include hashtag support small business singular and plural on practically every post. You do so just adds a real easy simple one but about your question about the baking together. What happened just a couple of months ago. Is that the initial component of that interoperability. Kim with messenger integrate thing with instagram direct. To the point that they changed the dang logo now his do my head and because there's like every logo is all the same kind. I don't know what's happening anywhere. Google did the same thing right. Real visit dead called click up. It's like the same colors. And then i'm like a messenger instagram. Say all these seem like rainbow colors confused a lot of people and so now okay. Now we're not just doing that. light blue on messenger. Instagram and messenger so lots of changes all at once. It definitely does seem like the focus or the push for new products in the last three years on. Facebook has been more geared towards ecommerce dynamic product as and obviously facebook shop. And now you've got this interoperability with shop. It's really interesting. Because the digital the info people service people like. Well wait a second i mean. Obviously small business storefronts. That's always been sort of a mainstay stan. Or you're really involved with a lot of the small business. push that they did for marketing. But it's interesting to hear that digital like these other businesses which we all know and love. Obviously that's like that's how they make their living is going to be a more of a push in the coming years. Which is which is really good news. I think for a lotta listeners. Well it's true because you know we've all been selling online for you know a decade two decades and so wonderful able to have all of these users on their mobile devices and by the way of course. Instagram is one hundred percent mobile. they have the desktop version. But everybody's mobile and then facebook. It's roughly about eighty percent. Eighty five percent that predominantly access facebook on their mobile devices. So the easier. You can make it for the customer whether bbc to just tap tap. Tap bob okay. You know whether impulse purchases or really more thoughtful ones or just even getting into your funnel. Obviously those are. Those are really great in jackson. Re targeting you mention dynamic ads ralph and so you know i think you know some companies are just really good at sitting in your car like amazon. And they're like oh you might like these other twenty. Things would work exceedingly well. I mean it's one of the greatest tools especially for ecommerce
How to profit from a distorted real estate market?
"This is kelly. From and i've been listening to the show for a while. Now thanks for the helpful advice when the pandemic started real estate sales in my areas slowed way down but for month or two then. They started back up again. Fuelled by lower supply as more sellers kept their homes off the market now. The overall market is way up with housing prices at least five to ten percent higher this year compared to the last however it's a very lopsided distorted market. No one wants to buy condos or small spaces. Everyone wants big spaces further out of the city and anything with a backyard. Is there a way to profit from these changes. Hey kelly thanks so much for calling in could you hear from you. I've actually heard much the same thing about the real estate market. Of course real estate markets very quite a lot by location the market in brooklyn is going to be completely different from the birmingham alabama market. And it's not just extreme comparisons like that from city to city state to state province to province etc lots of variations but generally speaking in areas. I'm familiar with. I've heard quite a bit the same as kelly. How at the beginning of the pandemic everything slug way down. But then it picked back up because of the difference in supply and demand and such and for sale prices are actually up a lot of places just not for condos or anything that's a small urban space and that's fueled by a couple of concerns first of all people are looking for backyards and outdoor spaces or anything that's that's larger you know the a small apartment But also it's not just because a safety concern. It's also because everybody is working from home working from home and going to school at home and even as we come out of the pandemic hopefully or at least transition to a new phase. I think more and more people are going to continue to be in those kind of environments. So that's why people are looking for larger spaces now inside us a life. I think it's important not just real estate. Because let's make this broader. You always wanna look at what people are missing or not paying attention to you. Do want to be a real estate investor in the traditional sense and snap up properties future. Rentals maybe this is a good time to acquire some of those condos. If you're thinking five to seven years out or whatever but i would say also like use this time to make sure your house in order like your own house you know no pun intended there You know make sure you have a good credit score. Make sure you have your emergency fund three to six months worth of expenses. Pay off any debt that you can or can't pay it off. Try to consolidate it to low interest at so you're at least not going further and further behind and perhaps most important of all like before you invest in real estate. Consider other options. As i said in the beginning like there's so many other things you can do i think. Having a diversified real estate portfolio people always talk about. I think that's a noble goal. It's not that. I think it's it's bad. It's just like so many other options. As i said i'd also requires you to have significant assets in the first place. So if you're not there yet Defer that goal and work on something else and don't be discouraged because you know first of all those other options and second remember that a lot of those other real estate investors are not necessarily doing that. Well you always hear these success stories about them. But there's a lot of people who get into this and and have have trouble whether it's with reservation or finding renters are just realizing that the whole thing is much more of a hassle so keep all those things in mind and look at what people are missing or not paying attention to
The Energy Sector in 2020 and Beyond
"Full answers. I'm also southwick. And i'm joined by robert. Brough ho ho bro. Camp personal finance expert here at the motley fool. That didn't work out at all seasons. Greetings to you all in this week's episode. It's part three of our year end. Investing series with the help of industry focuses nick cycle. We're gonna dig into the energy sector yet. It puns all that and more on this week's episode of multiple answers bro. What's up well also by the laws of personal finance multimedia. I am obliged at this time of year to offer a few year end financial planning tips. So i'm going to say you heard every year a there are a few that are unique to twenty twenty and boy. It's been a unique year so here are some ways to make the most of this interesting year. I have five number one. Max out employer's sponsored account so actually have until april fifteenth of next year to make twenty twenty contribution to an ira but the deadline for make for most employer sponsored accounts like 401k's and four. Three bs is december thirty first. So if you haven't yet maxed out the account if you have a little money lying around you still have a little bit of time. But you generally can't wait until the last day of the month for most employers you have to change your rate of contribution a few days before the final payroll of the year just an example the motley fool. If you want to max out your account this year you have until december tenth before four pm to do it but of course your job will be different so talked your hr department the bottom line here. Is that most 401k. Plans or at least many. Don't actually allow you. Just send a check you have to do it through the payroll just as a reminder of the contribution limits in two thousand twenty for most employer sponsored retirement accounts it's nineteen thousand five hundred with an additional sixty five hundred fifty or older by december. Thirty first for ira's six thousand dollars with an additional one thousand for the fifty in better crowd and those limits are not changing and twenty twenty one or staying the same that said income thresholds and being able to contribute to a roth or whether your contributions to a traditional ira deductible those will change so check those out if you're going to contribute to an ira twenty one number to make a corona virus related distribution from your employer account if possible so thanks to the cares act that was passed in march employers who have experienced certain health or financial related hardships due to the coronavirus can withdraw up to one hundred thousand dollars combined from their retirement accounts. Avoid the ten percent early distribution penalty. If they're not yet fifty nine half though you still taxes the good news is you have up to three years to return the money and it doesn't have to go back into the account from which it came. We've mentioned this a few times this year. This actually provides an opportunity for people who are in mediocre or worse employer plans to move the money to an ira however this option is only possible. this year in the deadline is actually december thirtieth. Not thirty first. So if you're intrigued. Sure to visit the irs website to make sure that you fit the criteria for making one of these rotavirus related distributions number three convert traditional to roth assets so you have to december thirty first to do a conversion for this year. This year is a particularly good one to consider a roth. Tax rates are historically low and income has dropped for many americans course you pay taxes on the convert amounts but then the money grows tax. Free as long as you follow. The rules of this is also a good year for americans over the age of seventy. Who want to do convergence. Normally you have to take your required minimum distribution from a traditional account first and then do the conversion no conversions do not count towards the required minimum distribution. But all our. Md's have been suspended for this year. So you can convert at will just remember that ever since the tax overhaul that passed in two thousand seventeen conversions could can no longer be undone by something known as a re characterization so only do a conversion if you're sure that it makes sense number four spend money remaining in flexible spending accounts depending on your employer's plan you have until december thirty first to spend the money in a dependent care or medical flexible spending plan. Some plans do have different deadlines some allow for extended grace period's up to maybe march fifteenth and for the medical account. Some plans allow you to roll up to five hundred and fifty dollars to two thousand twenty one. That's up from last year's five hundred dollar carryover amount also thanks to the cares act. The items that qualify for your medical flexible spending account have been greatly expanded visit. Fsa store dot com to see what's eligible and again reach out to your hr department to find out the deadlines for your plan and finally number. Five deduct charitable cash contributions. once again. Thanks to the cares act. Taxpayers can deduct up to three hundred dollars in cash contributions to call charities without having to itemize their tax returns. Make sure you visit the website for more info and it also has a searchable database to find which which organizations qualify

"As if he didn't want to be facing very spooky so police obviously go to that bridge where he said he had seen. It searched the riverbank around the bridge. And all they find are few mounds of wood chips at at first but then they find what looks to be an envelope and it's male and it's addressed to Helen. Helen M crafts in the wood chips. There's literally still a piece of envelope. That has her name on it. So they're like well see she's associated with this pile of wood chips one way or another right. They also also found a blonde hair blue fibers piece of metal and small bone fragments and when the snow finally melted. Police found something even more gruesome. You're not gonNA like this they found a pinkie finger nail with pink nail Polish on it. I know I'm sorry nope I thought it was a finger to but I but it was just the F- The nail this it's kind of I mean the the one thing that did not least cause her pain like I'm sure if we're like along that was the least painful part of it. All was losing a finger fingernail now still in my mind though. I imagine it's something to do with the Wood chipper. I don't think that this means something that happened during but yes I know I'm just thinking of all of the different parts. It's of her body. They could have found. That is the lease. Oh I it's not like but it's still the grossest to me. It's just something that you don't like personally. Yeah in the river itself. Detectives found pieces of a chainsaw. And they were like that's strange Obviously and they had the serial number scrap the chains out the serial number scratched off of it also unusual so they examined the individual saw blades and they find hair tissue and tiny blue pieces of fiber the same light blue color of hellas favorite nightshirt shirt which was missing out of her bedroom. According to the Hartford current state police divers began looking for his wife Crafts told his brother-in-law let them dive. There's no body. It's gone to his brother-in-law so to her brother okay. Or maybe his sister's husband whatever however family works not not good knocking so the serial number like I said had been scratched off but they somehow were able to us from the causes fair proud of those chemicals to remove the top layers of the metal and reveal the serial number beneath the scratched off layers. So they found it and surprise surprise. It matched Richard Crafts rental paperwork. I see on his credit card statement. That actually is pretty pretty nifty. I know I'd be proud to friends. Houses great guys double F double F F F every. We're here so funny. Oh that's what I put for fun fact. If someone read our notes it would be so fucking Bananas Bananas. Good if like everything is abbreviated in a way. That only I know where if you read it I it it makes a completely different version of sense to you so funny yeah I put like smiling. Faces frowned faces. Somebody one time like still are not off the stage and I was like remember that not good I I remember one time. Someone still both sets of our notes and and and they were like. Can you sign it and I was like. Oh I don't WanNa like associate. I mean I'll do it but I wanna make it clear clear like I'm not agreeing that this is mine because you have it in my name's yeah yeah. Yeah because I look like a crazy person. F F well. I don't think it's any coincidence. That F F is fun fact in forensic forensic files best true but sometimes a lot of people think they'll figure out like if they look at it. CW means civil war to me not content warning S. W. W. means sex worker so a lot like oh if CW civil war than S. W. is like some other type of war. And I'm like oh no. There are two different things but unless you you knew that WHO is trying to break down your notes like this I have they have been open next to Alison fucker. You yes that is I. I imagine I wouldn't understand it either. No it's my own formula yeah so anyway. SF In my current notes are is a friends and family got it is Km Keith now okay. So when it came to the bone okay. Sorry no no no no no. Investigators Used Hellas hairbrush to match the hair on the chainsaw to her hair. Then the fingernail. They compared the Polish or Polish at home and it was a match and when it came to the bone fragments they wanted to find out whether going through a wood. chipper would have caused the breakage that they found in the bone chips or like had it been pre broken. Exactly Alexa is this. What caused the bones to break so they put a pig through in dead pig? Not a live pig. They don't know where we were. We're going with this. Thank God I know it's terrible. I often saw footed. I don't Oh that's bad for you. Leave we've pigs alone. They're so smart and empathetic and Oh God they know how to love. which is the worst part? Stop eating them or do I mean do what you want but I feel bad about it. Just don't put them in would shippers for well. I guess if you're trying to figure out a murder that's a better reason than for fun. I mean you're the I'd like to thank the pig donated itself off the science. Let's think about it that way. So the cut on the bones that matched the cuts on the bones that they found that the river so it did indicate that these bone chips came from the whichever so investigators instigator concluded that craft struck Hella in the head with something blunt at least twice staining the carpet with blood then kept her body in the freezer for hours until she was frozen solid. He then cut her apart with the chainsaw and put the pieces of her body through the Wood chipper probably projecting her fragmented remains into the truck and then shoveling them out onto the into the river. That's a really it's a lot of steps it's a lot of steps and wow did it make a great reenactment glad to know that the production value was spot on. I know so doctor. Lee began to focus on the small piece of metal. They found the riverbank state. Eight determined that it was the crown of a tooth but since there was no human remain on remains on it they couldn't determine whether it was hers So what they did was they hired this forensic odontologist and didn't even know that I know it's fascinating so he went to the river. Dr Lee was like Hey. Can you go down to the river and search for evidence. So he's like nick for five days so he gets down to the river. It's freezing down there. And they start searching for evidence and he says he was there for about eight hours when he slipped and fell down into the riverbank. That's me on the job. Yep He had gotten muddy so he wiped his hands in the bucket he was using to collect evidence and there was a tooth that was I got. I know he was telling the story on the show like it was insane. He's like I went into wash my hands and I was like that was the guardian angel smack them like literally shove down the hill really that he would have to find the you'll thank me later. Yeah sorry every time I fall now. I'm going to be like sorry. My Guardian Angel was just I was try- There's a sign I needed to see. Yeah Oh poor boy is he's going to be over it so he'd been there right. Okay so the so. Because he's a forensic odontologist who's great eight. This is literally what I do. I have this tooth now and he was able to poke them on like master like finding like new Polka dots or something. Oh this is convenient for me. Only only got exactly so. He was literally able to match to one hundred percent to her dental records so it was like a match. That was I'm telling you Bingo Bango. They had enough to go on everything. I'm for reason folks. I don't totally believe that I do. I don't believe she was put in a wood chipper. For a reason. I believe that he fell for a reason. I mean sure fifty fifty okay live. Laugh love if you want. All right Richard Kraft was arrested and charged in the murder of his wife. Hello Craft and at the end of the forensic thous episode. They have a summary of what they believed to have happened. They believe Hella craft got home from a late shift from Europe around seven. PM when she was dropped off she put the children to bed around. Eight and the nanny wasn't expected home until midnight. She had the night off and Hella changed into her. Favorite blue. nightshirt looked through her mail and put some of her male in her pocket. She and Richard Gun to an argument and has Hella was bent over the bed. Either changing or rearranging the sheets. Richard beat her over the head with his police flashlight because he worked as a part time. Police officer wrapped her in the comforter carried her body to the freezer attempted to clean with the towels that they found in the bathroom. He then took his kids to a family. Member's house rented a large wood chipper chipper. And now by now hell is body was frozen so he transported the remains along with the chainsaw and would chipper to the river dismember with chainsaw. Then put the body pieces through the chipper so the male made its way through the chipper. It was in her pocket they believe thankfully because it had her name on it so like when they were first searching. That's what linked it into her. which is just amazing? That like that little sliver with her name on it was preserved so Richard Crafts was found guilty of murder. You're on January ninth nine thousand nine hundred. After only eight hours of deliberation. He was sentenced to fifty years in prison. And this case is also fascinating because it marked the first murder conviction victor in the state of Connecticut without the presence of body. Wow and that is the story of the murder of Hella crafts the first ever episode of Our beloved Forensic Files Jeff F. F.. That's that's really cool. I mean yeah but it's just fascinating.

Most you know what it is but it is the longest running true crime series and TV history. Also if you work at forensic files and want us to somehow be a part heart a forensic files please let us know what like I. DuNno reenactment actors. Actually yes not as correspondence at all just like as the murderer respondents fondants it's been the same narrator since nineteen ninety-six so don't even try it if he needs a day off. We can help absolutely not. I don't WanNa fill in for him. He's talking got got it. Okay I feel like the show will not survive without him And I should know his name because he's very famous but I don't remember sorry seems I'm no it's not season. One episode showed one originally aired April Twenty First Nineteen ninety-six and the episode was called the disappearance of Hella crafts. Okay here we are hello. Crafts was a Danish flight attendant living in Newtown Connecticut which is near where blazes from she and her husband Richard Crafts who also worked for the airlines as a pilot and Also on the side is a part time police officers so they'd actually met working In the airlines had married in nineteen seventy nine and had settled down in Connecticut and she continued to work and they had three children and both parents worked and by the mid eighties. Their marriage was not so happy Hella began to suspect a Richard. Turn of having an affair and so in September nineteen eighty six. She finally had enough. She met with a divorce attorney named Diana Anderson who was interviewed in this frantic files episode road in the two of them decided it was smart. It would be best for her to hire a private investigator To follow the husband and see what they could find out before doing any sort of divorce paperwork so they interview the private investigator. His name is Keith Mayo. I love it even kidding. They let 'em mustard horseradish going Keith Mayo. Had A like okay. So I don't think this is real but in the reenactment. There's like this door and it's like private eye Keith Mayo. And it's just so good because it's the nineties. It's so dramatic dramatic reenactments were way more dramatic in the nineties especially. I'm sorry. His name is crazy. It reminds me of a proud family when penny proud best friend was like. Dj and her siblings were different spices. Yeah Oh God I love that. Show okay so Keith. Mayo was also interviewed the episode. So this is like a chockablock full. She explained to Keith. That Richard was never home he was constantly lying about his whereabouts et CETERA. Friends would later say. Richard was also physically abusive towards her at this point and so when she hired Mayo. Pi Just so wild Keith Mayo. Pi and gave him some Sushi game some phone bills and they featured phone number that she didn't recognize and so he Komo found where that phone number was coming from And he followed. The leads asked to meet up with a few weeks later and when they met up Keith handed Hella set of photos. He had taken Richard Kissing another woman outside of this other woman's home in New Jersey. Oh not only was she another woman. She was another flight attendant. So that just F- you know has got hurt so she's devastated. Obviously even though she had you know had a clue about this she was pretty devastated Two months later in November Eighteenth Nineteen eighty-six. We six hello had gotten back from working along flight from Frankfurt and her one of her work friends dropped her off at home and unfortunately she was never seen again. Oh no a few days later when Helen missed her next flight assignment and hadn't called in sick which was very much unlike her. A few of her friends called her home phone and Richard. Her husband explained that she had gone to Denmark to visit her sick mother so when they kind of looked into this. And we're like really we didn't hear about this like she would have mentioned mentioned it And he said Oh no actually sorry hello was on vacation and they thought some island with her friends and can't be reached and they were like okay. You just said she was with. They're sick mother in Denmark. Okay already change your story. Yeah So her coworkers were like okay. Something is clearly up here. They also remembered that she had recently confided fighted in them on one of their shifts. Saying if anything ever happens to me. Don't think it was an accident if someone says to me I'M GONNA I'm soap. nope I would call the police. I don't know what I'm GONNA preemptively. Call the police reactively if you ever get a call from this phone number now it's an emergency and they'll be like we're the police. It's always an emerging and I'll be like right. You're correct as works at an emergency room and I can tell you not always an emergency ninety nine percent of the time. It seems to be a minor nosebleed lead or a bug bite anyway. Oh my God yeah sorry so yes i. It's just such a trope in these crime shows now of like. If something happens happens to me it was him. I'm like Oh my God. If someone told me that I would be so scared already before anything even happens yeah. It's not a good sign so they were like well well. Something's going on clearly. So they got in contact with Hellas Attorney. Diane her divorce attorney said like hey she just vanished and her husband's not telling us where she is and this is obviously really unusual. She has three young kids at home. She wouldn't disappear so diane called our friend Keith Mayo. Pi who immediately mmediately said Richard had something to do with this because he had been following him and he like knew how rocky their marriage was and he just knew something was up so he immediately decided to report are missing the Newtown Police Department. Unfortunately they didn't seem all that worried you know it's hard with missing people. Most of those cases are solved. It's a pretty quickly and so a lot of times. They're not taking seriously so Keith was dismissed his concerns were kind of dismissed so keep said you know what this sounds like the case for Keith Mayo and his partner. Dj and mustard and Christine. Horseman is the Wildest Fun. Fact about proud family. What's that is that sorry? I know I keep bringing it back to the. I just love spices and spice. I just love this conversation. Okay that Do you remember like the bossy girl on proud family. Your name Lossiemouth go boulevard. `As stop up I need to I remember like you came to me and like vision and I was like what on earth and for those who do not live in. La Lousiana Boulevard. Boulevard is like a major road. It's like a through street through La. And so. And I remember I put together and my brain just went that is like someone literally a writer literally either lives on Moscenica Boulevard or like the the writing staff would work like on or five commute was on that street and fucking hated it and so then. They named the bully after their commute literally Lafayette Boulevard. That's crazy I never over. It blew my mind anyway. Sorry didn't okay. Take away from the murder from Keith Myopia. Yes so This sounds case recuse. Maybe he takes the case on himself. He's like the police aren't GonNa do it on the Internet. So in the front files episode they actually show footage that Keith had that he gave them of him interviewing the crafts live in nanny. and Ed like set up a camera in the corner of the room. Look it wasn't even like he just recorded a here he's like set it up to like a wide shot. Go Watch it like on the ceiling rolling like I don't know how he did it but it's just so funny like took this very seriously which is really helped. But so they show Keith interviewing the nanny she describes a mysterious mysterious dark stain that she noticed on the carpet inside the bedroom door. Shortly after Hella had disappeared. She said it was the size of a grapefruit really dark and she didn't know what it was. She then unexplained that shortly after a Richard ripped up all the carpet to replace the flooring and would not give an explanation as to why Also concerning is that the nanny notice the large freezer the family kept in the garage had simply vanished overnight. Don't like one. The freezer is being used for Nope when Keith looked into Richard's credit credit card receipts. He noticed that shortly after Hella had disappeared. Richard had rented a commercial wood chipper. Getting worse worse. I was worried most about the freezer freezer until the next thing. I don't even care about freezer now. It's just evolving. I know I when I was watching. I forgot about the freezer and then it came magnetic. Oh my God. The freezer like we were at a wood chipper. Wait a minute hang on the lot of machinery big items big ticket items so Richard took a lie detector test and he passed. Okay the polygraph examiner said he showed virtually no emotion at all. Okay maybe maybe worse than actually passing. I wish she passed. Yeah Yeah it's just not good Connecticut police so finally they're involved now. They Call Lynn. WHO FORENSIC FILES CALLS THEIR SECRET WEAPON? Okay and this is forensic expert Doctor Henry Lee and he is like basically genius genius. He hasn't owned wikipedia page. I was reading all about him and his background. It's fascinating so he is a forensic expert and he and police examined examined the crafts home and on the mattress. Dr Lee discovered five tiny stains so small they could like barely visible by the naked eye and when they tested those spots they they were human blood the same type as hell is And my first thought is like okay. You know it's a bed like menstrual blood perhaps earlier on your period. Whatever something like that could could happen but apparently now I did not know this fun fact? Okay they can test whether it's circulation blood or menstrual blood. It's like a different. I'm not surprised but it's nice to know it makes sense if you think about it but it's something that I wouldn't have really never ought about it. Yeah So they tested the blood and it was not measurable. It was circulation blood which is not good. So that means it's coming from. He said a blood vessel had to be injured for the blood to have appeared essentially like cut or something like that. Dr Lee also so determined that the location of the blood indicated the victim had been leaning over the bed or kneeling and it appeared as though the victim had been struck by a blunt object. There were there. There was also a six inch smear of blood down the side of the mattress awesome so basically as if someone had been hit and then like slid down the mattress essentially the towels in the bathroom. I'm had been recently washed fully cleaned and dried but when they tested it. There's like photos of this. They just lit up blue which is sign of blood and so they were soaked in blood. Blood like these blue tout their white and then they test them but they were white and someone got up that much blood. Bleach the shit out of icy. That is the real thing we should be focusing on at least one second. Dr Lee give me give me some oxy cleaner some shit. I don't know if they were white. But they were definitely like light. Colored Towel got it and they were had had been washed so you can see the photo of the blue. It's really disturbing. But again they had nobody at this point. No weapon no witnesses and they were like well. What do we do with us? So what they they go back to the drawing board and they kind of go back to the day that Hella disappeared and they realized that snowstorm had moved through on the night of hells disappearance and so they got in touch with this snowplow driver. He reported seeing a wood chipper on a bridge at about three thirty in the morning. Winging remembering it was an odd placement and time he saw man wearing an orange Poncho on the side of this would chipper who looked out and then like disappeared behind it..

"Just see child sized shadow people running running around even worse than like an adult sized shadow person. I don't know it's all bad children's voices heard calling out all the time. Plus you can hear I'm laughing yelling playing together In the kitchen there's a one shadow figure that walks around. That's the size of a very tall man who will peak around the corners and sometimes actually follow Ali. You into the kitchen see hind you. So you don't know but someone else will see you walk in with someone and be like Oh who who followed you in here. Where are they and that there was no one? You'll I see someone looking over your shoulder which is just the worst yup also in the basement with several children There is a dark entity that has been seen walking the halls charging at people taunting people and then as a very creepy laugh which I have heard on. VPN literally like fresh out of a movie like raw fuck laughing at ABC's always gets me. Yeah it's like you. I kinda hate that. You're having you're not that I was. You're having a bad time. I mean if you're a demon. I hope you're having a bad time. It's that I don't know what you are in there for. I don't know how I want your attitude to be. I haven't decided what be happy but also don't be mad because you're going to be that is what do we do so another. There's another man in a white shirt and overalls that scene in the basement which makes sense because because of the electrician. who was there in Sossamon staring out the window? People in the basement have been scratched poked grabbed shoved and have left with bruises. Because of how hard they've you've been grabbed at. Apparently the eighty mansion has a twitter handle. I WANNA mention it. Called baby mentioned Nice An updates who on investigations Sion's and features on paranormal shows. How do you spell that B. E. A. T. T. Mansion okay got it and It seems like it's only we like paranormal updates which is really nice also their website beatty mentioned dot com literally a whole paranormal section where they post investigation evidence celebrity interview so I appreciate when a business is like look. We're not trying to hide it. It's haunted here's some footage like they know what half half of us are here for to begin with right. There's so many places like when we went to like the pfister hotel here. It's the most haunted hotel and the entire state and they're like no. There's no ghosts here. And I'm like our mouths. It honesty is clearly not part of your professional con. And there's like a plaque somewhere like all the ghosts on this floor and we're like wait or like you're telling me it's not haunted and yet there are like grown roane like baseball players that are fleeing challenge and having their contract they will not stay there and then I was there and I saw someone like sitting on the bed next absolutely not goodbye. Come on pfister hotel. Make it clear but also don't solnit own it and also just like have a secret tab where all the evidence is so I can look at it own own your ghost So people have seen a shadow man walking up to them from around the corner of an like seeing them in. There is like you're sitting here see someone walk up to standing being there and then when you turn around not only. Is he still there. But then he'll turn the corner and walk off before you can speak to him so the shadow people that show up and just like wait for you to look at them. ooh sometimes they will just vanish. But there have been people who've said like oh no I watched him turn the corner and I couldn't people have seen someone standing at the top top of the stairs which is usually elisas spot on the second floor sure. Sometimes people have literally seen Elisa Hovering over a group of people. Some people people have seen her standing at the top of the stairs and then walking away apparently people have seen orbs that they assume are Liza at the top of the stairs float down the stairs and then come back up the stairs years. Wow she likes those stairs really likes her. She's got to get her stepson. Her kalvesier purdy built on my. Gosh yes people have. Their shirts getting tugged on people experience. Vertigo go they have Ear Ringing people will feel touches on their hand. Apparently there's intelligent he m. f. spikes equipment responses. So if you say can you touch this light. It will go on. Sometimes the interview sessions with spirits have gone so intense that objects have been thrown at people. There were two different videos that I watched over the four were I I watched more. But the the forces that I listed are the ones with the most information that I got at least two of those someone got rocks thrown at them. Oh my God there've been orbs that will follow you. Kids have been seen running up and down the halls and up the stairs. One investigator named Malaysia from Apex. Paranormal said that he was in the basement by himself sitting on the bucket first mistake well. Apparently he's one of the only people who's actually been in the basement alone. Everyone only wants to do the buddy system. I don't blame him so he went to the basement by himself itself and he dislikes sat down there and he was sitting on a bucket that was upside down and he saw a shadow figure From an off room in the basement kind kind of Pekan and then hide and then Pekan and then hide and then after like a half an hour it was literally like a whole shadow figure. You're at first. He thought it was like. Oh maybe that's something obstructing the window or Ryan but eventually within a half an hour. It wasn't just peeking out anymore. It was like walking out and then running back in. Oh Oh my own and then walking out as if it was either playing a game or getting braver. Yeah Yeah Either oh no either I hate will ferry. It's all bad and so I. I said it kept leaving farther out and then running back in for safety and then getting closer to him and then running out and he said quote the feeling of dread endanger. I got when when this happened. Happened was enough to make me fall off the bucket and stumble away before I gathered myself is one of the more intense scariest moments I've had because what ended up happening at the end was as operator in braver. Ver- instead of walking out and running back in at one point it just fucking bull rushed him no and it freaked him out. So much of this thing was literally just charging at him sprinting renting a full force and oh and he likes threw himself off the bucket and just down there and that thing probably had a grand time probably when it started laughing. Oh Yeah I'm sure. A- apparently one of the sources told me that there's a lot of pictures still hanging up on the walls there from that like this hundred year old map but like hundred year old pictures pictures of the children who used to live there and shit and there's clothing so there from people who used to live there creepy so and also this is the place where a lot odd people did have their last good memories because this was the last place that housed them So there's a lot of things that could easily be attached here shore One of the investigators are Shannon Shannon the researcher. She even said you get your best experiences here when you just treat it like. It's a home where you're visiting people who live here and you you are just visiting and you're sitting down and hanging out and wanting to talk to them instead of coming in here in demanding them to speak to you. What kind of goes on our would do that there are? EDP's doesn't listen man. I Dunno anymore. I've I've been getting brave in tagging him and things so that's your own so blocked me long ago. I gave up next so here. This this is now all just. EDP's the rest of my notes are just VP's which like just to give you an idea. Oh Shit that's more than a lot more than norm. Get the Goose Cam Ready. Get Goose Cam Ready. So goose did not know you. That's going to be an MVP like in one hundred years when someone someone's investigating this area and they just goose zoom. Several people going could have possibly mean. So here's the VP's I this. This isn't even all of them. Everything that I. I tried to write down every single one and this isn't even all but I got fed up at one point I was like there's too many go up which is the first I am. It's ever happened where I'm like. There's too many never heard this so apparently there are VP's not limited to included. But I'm sorry. Sorry I forgot what the phrase was. I'm waiting in here what's up. I don't know where this comes from. But it's definitely a distinct eighty one. Oh ooh come here. No not here. A kid saying six pieces as if like toilet or chocolate. That's where my mind. If it were me it'd be sixty pieces right. Not what was it eighty one. He's the future me that's my best piece it all together. I don't know what these mean. They're super context. But a man saying anybody can walk what. I don't know what that means an I die off I agree. It's also very very spooky if you're like a demon I don't know this is what I like to think of. It is So my GRANDPA was an amputee but sure. Yeah when people have an many of us have have seen him after he passed and everyone of us have seen him with both of his legs right. And we're like Oh. He doesn't look younger which is interesting. You'd think the first thing you want to do is like age to like your favorite year or something. But maybe that was his favorite. Maybe lose favorite limb. I don't know but I imagine that's something my grandpa would say when we find come on the stairs. and He's dead and he's like anybody can. Where's your leg was gone? Well anybody who arc just try hard enough so there's another vp of a male mail. Saying go back there's an EDP of mail saying we're happy. Thursday creepy male laughs. There's the sounds of dragging. There's a sound of There's piano yeah no keys playing which heard I heard. A few of the video has weird. There's a female. VP of someone. Saying catch me has another thanks. I'm GonNa believe you go away. Actually wherever I do find you. I'm going to go the opposite very run away from me. There's a female voice that says you're welcome. There's a male voice that says look behind you go K. A female voice has been heard singing. There's another female British voicing a healthy right this up so might have been someone who work there interesting sting and EDP saying is it cold out. GET OUT OF HERE Shannon O.. An A male voice saying get out. There's also been apparently a a lot of hissing and growling. Oh I like how there's one that says we're happy and the rest is just like everyone's like no not yet. So apparently for the little kids leads. They've learned that if you like there's a bed or a table or something if you take a bunch of candy and leave at everywhere in the new walkaway when you come back. All the candy will be rearranged blue so in this area they decided they were going to put candy out and this was in paranormal lockdown but anyways they decide to put candy out and and they got an MVP of a little kid saying trick or treat and then a little kid laughing. Oh No oh my gosh an EDP of trick or treat treat. I mean some of these like I'll help you write that up like that's a long ass. Yeah in a British accent. Noah's yeah I like the fact you can decipher. It means. It must be so clear and this isn't like a Spear Bucks Foxworth coming just from the air like yeah from nothing..

"And we imagine there's some latent repressed homosexual tendencies on his end. So I think he was doing the internalized internalized homophobia towards main his death in the afterlife and that might be why he hated. You know I really. I always liked to believe that you kind of resolved your issues news upon your death but it seems like you just kind of bring them with you. Maybe that's why he never passed moved on ABC anyway. Oh okay sorry anyway. That's a tall tall story. I I suppose that is quite a story quite anyway. There may or may not be gay demon. That's after me Please don't bring it here. I certainly try not to also don't call if he listen if he has suppress things in your calling him gay GonNa get even hours straight as a circle. Erin I mean a narrow narrow okay so so where were we. Don't have any idea. Thank you for asking me though. Okay so oh yeah. Storms the guy heard music in his hallway A.. And then the Inuit silent right. There's another caretaker or maybe the same I they all start overlapping at one point. One caretaker who is staying in the middle of the night heard what sounded like a Butler outlier. Outside of his room. Going be right there sir. ooh which by the way I would have been like. No no no stay where you are. What are you bringing me? First of all and then I'll tell you I hope I'm not Sur. I I hope there's another Sir and then it's like I hope there's another gross but then it's like I don't want anyone there anyway true you hope it's addressing someone that's not you but also then there's two girls Oh oh no catch twenty two so apparently he got out of bed. Ran Out 'cause at this point. He thought his job was to make sure nobody was breaking in. Protect any any heard a guy. Say I'll be right there sir. I was like okay. Someone's probably breaking it so politest burglar ever right exactly the burglar we all want so then he ran out of Israel and nobody but he was there at another time. Caretaker was in the kitchen knelt down to grab something stood back up and there was a full byte operation standing in front of him. I mean you. You can't even blink nowadays. I mean if you're me without getting terrified they are gonNA see something. Oh every time I am in some sort of vulnerable position as second. Recover from this. There's going to be five thousand. Open the shower door closed showers the mirror cabinet. Every time I go to bed now so I'm obviously I go to bed after everyone else in my apartment. 'CAUSE RJ wakes up at like five am and you know to do sports to to literally go to the gym for fun. So I go to bed last asked and I have to walk through is a turn off the lights and then walked from the living room down the hall to the bedroom and now every single time I consider it preparation if we were to like ever like do a ghost town or something. I'm like I just stand there and I'm like okay. What if I were to ever actually have to be an dark room? I need to be ready. I need to like steal my nerve. I need to normalize. Yes I need to like desensitize my cellphone or anything but like I just I like to imagine like I need to teach myself this for survival because who knows. You don't expect me you to be that way because I'm definitely but it's just like a fun. Little risky game. I play with myself. How Fun is that so the one time? The owner is in the basement Jason and he felt burning on his arm took off his sweater later and saw that there were three deep scratches in his arm enough to cause bleeding and at that time he was was like okay now. This thing is getting violent. I need help. I need answers and so he reached out to nearby paranormal places and found apex paranormal We asked them to come in and investigate and apparently their first night there even like the first five minutes there. They got so much evidence that the owner ended up agreeing to just open up the house to them well and N.. Now Apex Paranormal does regular investigations there and apparently they even host other teams to investigate their to. Can we come. Apex is a set of ringing endorsement. To Oh you yet. Can you tell us that we're so prepared. When we walked down the hallway and can't even they'll be like I heard you wanna go ghost hunting in the dark and you're preparing yourself in your apartment so yeah come spend a night with on? Yeah it seems like you're not ready to help you know little bit so now the building gets rented out by investigators through I think through apex or apex is the one that goes there most most often but it gets rented out by investigators and all that money goes towards the remodel. Keep that he's always wanted so in the first five minutes the rest is now just ghosts. I and there's a lot so get ready guys I lost my spot. Oh here in the first five minutes of apex being there apparently they saw a shadow. Oh they were in like the main room and they justly cow. If you're in a living room and it's dark out you'll see like a shadow of like a lampshade or something against the wall. They were in this room long enough enough that they saw a shadow and had normalized it as like. Oh that's just a shadow of the furniture. Gone they were there for like a solid five minutes or something and then only after that much time I am. The shadow flew off. Oh my God as if it had been sitting and waiting auctioning. Yeah Oh God then from there. They saw a figure walking down the hall all in the middle of the day. Like it was bright enough that you win. Think it's spooky our but people are walking down the hall and then they heard a female voice shouting. I WANNA go home. Oh which when you first of all I wanNA make it clear. So many people in the last hundred plus years have gone through this place that there's no way to know everyone's story hey but between it housing homeless people the elderly sex workers children. I mean it held every type of person that has like a pretty wild story. There's no way to even know what you're listening to half the time. Oh my God but so they heard a woman say I wanna go home and not just through a digital recorder later like they heard it in real time it was such a powerful voice they all heard it in real time without any machines So the main spirit is Elisa the one who potentially murdered her husband with arsenic suber She is the most prominent spirit in the house. And she's mainly seen on the second floor between the East and West Wings which is interesting because you would think that might be a residual spirit but it's proven it's at least it confirms that it's an intelligence bureau because she would have no reason to guard that part of the area since the West Wing was built after after she died right and she's really protective of this space for some reason. How and it's definitely an intelligent spirit and not a residual spirit because she actively flee responds to you and she actively hates men boy to a point where if a man standing in this hall for too long she it will usually only like push you or poke you or something like that? But it's gotten to a point where there have been multiple times where she has literally tried to choke men. Oh Jeez Jeez. So hard that she has left hand Princeton marks on their necks later. Oh Gee she will literally try to push into your voice box. Oh Oh oh but if she likes you should play with your hair. I I don't know I don't know if I wanted to let you know I don't want her to a lesser of two evils. But yeah she will literally try to push into into your voice box in there will be like choke marks. Let's just terrible And there was one interview or a researcher there named share Shannon. And she there was is a quote where she was like. If you have long hair it'll definitely played with if you're here without a doubt like they like long hair. Cut it off. Shave your damage David. So also there's room nineteen because remember. There's thirty four rooms here in a lot of it was a boarding house at one point. Eight Room Nineteen It's alleged that there was woman who hanged herself here from hyping in in that room There has been no hard evidence of that however mediums and EDP sessions have both confirmed that by speaking spirits in the Basement Smith Aka the worst part of this entire place. That is where at one point. Servants lived before it turned into a bunch of housing but it was the the Henry and not hinge. That's the pittock mansion that I just covered I got mixed up to Armstrong and allies at sorry. Please refer to our previous episode Don't and just ignore that. So Armstrong and Elisa. They're servants stayed in the basement. Also the creepiest part about this basement. I mean there's many creepy things but my personal of favourite creepy thing about this is it still. Has the original doors from the eighteen. Hundreds on the hinge is one of the basement so pitchers on it from the Youtube. Video like the paint is all like cracked in the handle. Looks like it's like older than life ooh So lots of negative energy there they also think fun fact that the Kitchen Chin First of all the kitchen is super hot and you can see a bunch of shadows walking through there all the time they'll even like peak around the corner and Shit they think the kitchen is super haunted because it is directly above the basement which is full of negative energy interesting also feel good kitchen such a. I don't know maybe it's just because I was like a House party last night. I feel like there's everyone just always gathered in the kitchen right. It's the most active right households trying to say so. I my kitchen and my house is haunted. Yup Case you didn't know that mom interesting. Oh also also so. There's a lot of negative energy there. There's also allegedly a lot of abuse. That happened to the kids when they left there because remember they weren't even originally moving them to orphanages. There were just I lone kids that lived here so said an adult might have abused them. Sure to be fair. There's still apparently a lot of research to do before. There's any official comment on that. But it's alleged that a lot of kids used to be in the basement and so there's probably some dark things that in the basement. There's probably at least is suffering if there were people there who just didn't have a home the very least a were sad children in the basement. It's not a good. It's not a good start. Well so apparently in the basement I and other parts of the House. It's not just contained to the basement but in the basement there have been a lot of children heard down there from playing to laughing to yelling to talking to each other. There's also apparently one there's an older woman in a little boy. That are always paired together. So I don't know if that's like a mother and son deal. I don't know if they just became friends when they live there but apparently they've been seen the basement together and by the way these these youtube videos that I watched they do a really good job of showing you you an original footage. We're like a lot of these. Vp's I am not going to get the VP's yet. But when I get to them I do want to say like I listened to them and they're like weirdly totally clear as day. They're not ones that you have to guess on like you can hear voices laying in talking to each other. You can hear men talking each other. You can hear a woman just screaming Ming like the but it's like they're not asking real and especially if you're in a room full of adults and you hear children talking on an like yeah like there's nobody in the room like that's something else exactly and you can like here like toys being like kind of Oh God touched on and stuff so anyway. So here's the other. Ghosts Armstrong has been seen pacing the halls of the East East wing and sometimes whistling. While he's walking around I did hear. Vp of the whistling definitely was linked creepy. The lower portions of the house is where most of the spirits of children are seen especially in the kitchen. There's a lot of children and there's a lot of adult there's an adult man that walks around But apparently in the kitchen most of the time if you are seeing either the man or the children it's always shadow figures so you don't see solid full-bodied children running around you..

"It Eighteen eighteen eighty eighteen eighty. Three five hundred dollars to now. I don't think it's GonNa know what I'm talking about due west egg inflation calculator. Oh I can play this fun. Dinosaur Game No Internet oh good well this is going much smoother than I imagined Kokai. Sorry fast forward. Thirty five hundred eighteen eighty. Yeah Okay so thirty. Five hundred dollars in eighteen eighty is only smokes six eighty eight grand. Oh okay that's that's still not that much no but for big mansion. Yeah but I guess it was maybe like it. It was a nonprofit organization or something luebbe I mean I don't know yeah. So luebbe made the house into a home for the friendless which I know. They're so benevolent. There so benevolent let your friend spoke sets me. They should put them in with the The odd fellows or something. I love those guys So home for the friendless was basically an organization where they would house in give food and protect unwed. What mothers and he like homeless people kids are by themselves? the mentally ill maybe any addicts basically anyone. That didn't have a home. They would shelter you and feed media. Okay interestingly enough. A lot of people that they took in were sex workers in the area because in Saint Joe alone there were around eighty brothels in the city. Wow and and if you got pregnant as a sex worker you got kicked out of the brothel and so there were a lot of pregnant sex workers that ended up moving in because they were announcing mums. Wow so so as more people came in they were like. Wow we like. There's a lot of friendless people. And we need to build a West Wing. So a I think for a while or an unnamed named family. But I heard one of the Interviewers actually say the name of the family but it doesn't matter they donated twenty five thousand dollars at the time to help build a West swing and start bringing more people into the home they noticed. I don't know if they did this on purpose but they started transitioning to catering more to like elderly families or elderly people that needed a place to stay and so by eighteen. Ninety five is started actually transferring the kids to orphanages and kind of weaning away from single single moms and just transitioning into just welcoming in the elderly interesting so then the home of the friendliest or whatever it was called Christine's house. You really taking a lot of strays as one of them I live there myself but Home for the friendless. They transitioned it into specifically for the elderly and changed the name into memorial. Home of the aged will They're good at this so so naming they're called Moja now I was gonNA ask Maha Maha. It doesn't matter so the home was converted into memorial home of the agent. It actually was It stayed within the building that company or that the program was With the building for over one hundred years in in Nineteen ninety-six after one hundred one years later Modern facilities were needed and the program ended ended up just getting moved to a new location because now pretty small. And wasn't you know up to standard says Nineteen ninety-six. The mansion became a temporary the home for and then it was abandoned until two thousand four. Okay so in two thousand and four. It was bought by the current owners. Names Michael And his original goal in two thousand four was. I'M GONNA buy this place and turn it into a bed and breakfast. He tried to get renovations going but Activity kept halting the PROJO Zhao paranormal activity. Oh Hell Yeah so in the two thousand ten. Let's just start there okay. Renovations began and workers are voices. They heard footsteps. They heard music music. They saw shadow figures and tools or go missing and the workers even reported getting grabbed and poke to one electrician also was alone in the house at one point and went out to the truck for tools and looked behind him in through the basement window. He saw man in coveralls staring at. Oh my he hope he didn't go back into that how he drove off and never came back good. This became a regular thing where the workers would not come back here. He only could get control Contractors in there for a couple of days and within a couple of days it'd be like we're out. That's that's terrible especially if you're just trying to get this bed and breakfast run just WanNa do something nice. Just put up the wallpaper so the owner of the building. The people must be breaking taking in He ended up hiring caretakers. I think I don't know if he hired caretakers in bulk and multiple caretakers were there or even they kept data leaving and one by one new caretakers. Okay but at some point there were multiple caretakers. I don't know the chronology of that got it. But he hired caretakers to live there and guard the place since he thought people must be breaking in. Since everyone is saying that they're seeing people walking around in this house in coveralls in coveralls so one thing that all the caretakers have been able to say is that activity gets even worse. Whenever there's a storm weird so which would I don't know I don't know enough to be able to make like a sweeping statement about that but it would make sense to me that if we believe that goes manipulate electrical activity then lightning and yeah it makes sense the amount of energy in the air right? Yeah I would imagine. They like we think they can touch Saddik energy or manipulate or something. Then a storm would help conjure that or it's also like a shift in like you know how when you changed environment. Yeah business piecing. It's the environment changes when it rains so I think maybe that makes more gusts thirty percent chance. It's already raining so that's actually one of the girls do the during a one storm caretaker was In bed at three in the morning of course always and woke up to banging on his door like intense banging on his door. I would just expire on the spot especially if you're alone we bam Bam Bam Bam. I'm done on a bedroom door like someone already in your house. Yeah it's too late. So he got up and he said he felt felt like eminent danger. Oh God okay and at one point he just got brave enough to be like. I guess I'm GonNa have to check. Open the door. Nobody was there all all the lights in the hall. Ron and every other door on the floor was wide open. Good bye oh so it was able to open all the doors except his. I guess you had a lock on it. Maybe but even then it goes. It goes to show that clearly wanted every during the floor open and so it was banging on the door open. Oh God oh God have three in the morning. No so I know I have goose zoom why. TMZ On by wise shirt art. Okay 'cause we set it literally. The episode came out today that we set it on your on that you've had a week. No Oh now you've had when this. Yeah so another caretaker again during another storm Also was that one during a storm that was going to get it. This is also during his term. Keep in mind. The activity tiffany that. I've found it doesn't really matter if there's a storm or not it sounds like this place pretty fucking haunted but conveniently this was during a store to the craziness though. Oh yeah like especially like I mean think of every every horror movies. There's lightning outside completely. There's a caretaker who her was in bed again and heard music and laughter upstairs as if there was a whole Party going on got out of bed went to go look and like literally could still hear this for the length of walking down entire hallway. He's up to up. Like whatever is is down there I would imagine knows that he's up in his continually still making these sounds like fucking with him and it's right. Oh walking the run of a hallway like that's also a long time it's not like Oh did you hear that it's like I can still hear it and I'm conscious and walking around and trying to investigate while hero horn somewhere finally really opens a door to like a a guest. He opened the door thinking that might be where the sound was coming from. And then all of a sudden all of the sound went silent. I'm telling you this as if it was like found us or something they try. Yeah didn't catch which I have mentioned before my step mom has said that that happens a lot of my dad's house the place that Super Duper fucking on it. They think someone's having a party. My My Dad's sleeps like a rock but my step mom sleep superlight and she's more in tune with stuff and she said there's been many times is where they're sleeping and they live in a tiny little cabin like they don't have anything really going on in the middle of no right but so she'll be lying in bed in the living. Living Room is like right next to their bedroom and she'll wake up sometimes and here like it says if there's tens of people like right outside their door having this huge party like music's going there's laughter there's drinks clinking talking like it's like a whole Party and you're just like in the bathroom or something and she'll get up and shall walk outside and the second she like looks into into the living room. All the time goes on Goose Cam. Goose can't do do you think because like with something like this or like shining. It's kind of like. Oh a flashback to previous prior times like well maybe going on at your step mom and dad's house well and this is not to give a bad rep to anybody in the community. But my stepmom is wiccan and that doesn't mean that she's doing anything like wrong when it comes like rituals or ceremony or anything but I I like to think because she's opened up the doorway so many times maybe it's just kind of like a thinner vail. She's hearing things from another realm. Yeah or maybe it's residual. Although the only history we know of that of the cabinet living is the people who lived there before them and they more like Rogers they literally lived in a cabinet in the middle of the woods and they were like seventy seventy year old retirees. Like they didn't do anything wild. I wonder if they heard it. Maybe I don't know actually I do remember when we moved in. They did say the place is haunted. Wonder under what Soak Fascinating. I wonder what happened before them. I mean I don't know I up. But I know that I wouldn't think that's residual from them must be residual from before them because we also have other ghosts. They're like several other ghosts. We have one named Charlie who I used. Charlie was cool dude and I now have associated him with the demon that also lives in that house. Fantastic so I don't know Charlie's the demon or Charlie was cool. But when I hear Charlie like now looked triggers. All these like times where I would like wake up in the middle of the night to a massive black cloud floating over me. Oh good and I just wrote that on my list of favor girls names and I'm glad that maybe even the one a little charlie running around also while you're telling that glance up and made contact with Robert the doll than I went. Oh and I turned and I made eye contact the skull and the other corner and I'm like I can't escape is not the place to feel spiritually safe. Also my bedroom is literally on the other side of this wall. So if I start hearing a fucking party tonight I'm leaving my room. Just yeah well my son got to a point where she just open the door and go shot up and then slam the door and then the sound would go. Oh that's that's fucking that's horrifying nanny cams and just like see. Actually that'd be pretty genius and we did find out that I think this is also related to the black cloud cloud the demon who you know that one you know that one At one time at one point when I would have done my ghost hunting I brought over some equipment and we did. It can like a yes or no a questionnaire was something that was there and we found out that it hated me for being. LGBT WHOA you're LGBT. I am sorry also I I I believe that this spirit also not to like. Call me one out but I have a feeling that it was I forget what I don't know if I don't remember number what happened but apparently through either my medium friend or something that my step mom had gathered about him found out that it was a man dressed like he was from the fifties. ABC's really.
