Fresh update on "paralysis" discussed on Guerrilla Podcast Syndicate
"Like hyper growth in scale but going back to the pod. Max can you tell us the old review in what is the different of these Pod max from odder visual band or event on inland widow podcast saw other events From my understanding. Don't do what we do in terms of training sort of like speaker training. But it's it's training to tell your story and have clarity in your story and message on podcasts. Like delivering your story like this on a podcast versus delivering. Your message on the stage are drastically different so we help people to identify clarify their messages in their stories so that they they're effective when they tell when when they get on these podcasts. So that's before the event and then the event we record podcast live you know. Imagine if there's twenty thirty forty people who are recording on shows. Multiply that by three because they're recording on three shows. We're getting dozens and dozens of dozens of podcasts. Recorded in one day right so so that is unlike any event virtually or life. Where where you come in. You're trained to speak and have confidence on podcast than you record throughout the course of the day. And then between you're doing high level mastermind type networking with like minded individuals. All doing amazing things in different categories of business whether it's investing or marketing or podcasting as a business. They're all there and they're all helping each other. They all find ways to complement each other and then the community is there so you have a community that you can tap into to inspire you to learn to grow and then you had the keynote speakers. So it's like it's chock full of amazing content and people all in one day which no one else doing do you say about storytelling on i'd casting. So what is your advice to people who is starting a podcast. Either for their cell oprah their business because some of the podcast was great and right now sometimes you just aid and that's it and why it's important the storytelling and by casting. Yeah so you. The storytelling is critical in terms of engagement. You want people to be interested. I mean if they turn on their phones and they listened to your show and it's not engaging in terms of relate ability You know humor or or value there. Certain things that people are looking for and everyone's different but you know they're looking for something and if they don't find it within the first thirty seconds of your show then they're out right they don't wanna listen to your show but as a podcast stor getting started. I recommend just get started like do it. Don't worry about all. Don't get hung up on all the details because it will paralyze you analysis paralysis. And and i always encourage people whether you're a real estate investor or podcast or just do it like jump in the deep end and just figure out how to swim once you start to figure out how to swim then you could get into the technique they and you can get into the the methodologies and and the strategies behind it because you've gotten the hard part out of the way you know just turning the micon and feeling like you have value in worse. It's a mental game. Meco people think. Why would i have podcast. I have nothing to say. No one has any interesting. What i have to say that's bs because you are a unique individual that has unique experiences that no one else has had and you need to share those stories even if it's just for you because there's a way to document the journey that's why people journal that's why people right. You didn't diaries. It's therapeutic method that's effective and if the podcast is nothing other than that then you one and if people show up that's even better and That's your right so goes by casting. I remember one of the marketing guru said podcast is the new blog. There's definitely some truth into that. Because although blogs are still there and they're effective and it's a wonderful outlet for people to be creative if you're writing is your thing and that is your your superpower keep logging. There's benefits definitely with doing that. But podcasting has become a tool. And i just want to add is a tool. It's a marketing tool to leverage for you to create quickly. And then also to trans transcribe and create more content through blogs through video micro content. There's a so many wonderful things that come from a podcast through one recording. You can create a massive amount library of content from one interview or one one podcasts. Even if you're a solo project be but imposter syndrome. So why not say why pushing yourself out. For for your comfort zone that will only lead to A great success or brightness cause some people would want to podcasts by did not know because of the bush cba even the have their own keillor. Savell i i like in podcasting or anything that you wanna do that. You haven't done before to the gym. You can to the gym. Let's say you know you're overweight. You're out of shape your somewhat sad and depressed because you're not healthy and and doing regular exercise so if you show up to the gym and everybody looks beautiful right. That's intimidating. I get it like oh my goodness everybody. I'm gonna leave. I'm gonna turn around and walk away. Fine that's on that's up to you. That's your choice. It's the same thing with podcasting. Even though people sound amazing and look amazing and they seem like they have. I didn't start out from birth as a podcast. I'd just like anyone out there who's listening. Who's never been had a show. I there was a time where zero shows. I had never done podcasting ever in my life. This was not my profession. So what you hear what you see right now is someone that started from nothing just like you. Here's the thing though. Those people at the gym didn't they weren't born like that. They had to go and put the reps and they had to go and commit to the daily grind activities and discipline in order to achieve what you see as a win. So i've been podcasting three or four years now. So of course i've got. I've got a lot of experience and confidence in what i do. But i didn't start off like that. I literally if you go back to my very first episode of entrepreneur circle. I mean my basement talking on my phone. And i'm like i don't know what's going to come into this walking around in my basement and a lot of a you know that's where i started and i love it because if you leave it there you have contrast you have something to compare just like people love those before and after whenever they do a house renovation. People love those shows their to those shows. Why because you get before and after all in of course thirty minutes like look at that crap. That house was was was was a big pilot garbage and look it. It's beautiful. I would live there. So that's kind of what's.

It's the thank you video where you're building up that para social relationship with your fans and telling them like don't stop watching keep watching.

It was your phone and the ipad and the computer and Tv and video game console on all of these things that you're spending time on it end and became like a sing that Parents were made to feel guilty about allowing too much of and the crawley of that is kids being inside all the time.

"Areas jack sleep paralysis. It does happen to four out of every ten people that is forty percent. So i'm not alone. There are other factors that are linked to sleep paralysis. Because this was this is what i learned from that daughter on keeping up with the kardashians therapist was stress is a huge thing. Now i've always want to be one of those people that oh i'm not stressed out but sometimes our body is telling us that we're stressed out. Even though we don't i mean ignorance is bliss. Let's get real so that another thing. I need to look at is if i'm stressed out or anything like that a lack of sleep. Now i'm trying to still maintain my seventy eight hours asleep everyday if you go to happy hour with me. You are fully aware that latino barbie is in bed at least by eight thirty and i actually moved it up from eight to eight thirty. So you're welcome sleep scheduled at changes again. this week. I went out wednesday night. And i probably didn't get my full seventy eight hours of sleep sleeping on the back. And that's what i highlighted on. This paper was since. I do not sleep on my back anymore or i should say i'll sleep on my back but not after i've gotten my goodbye kiss from giancarlo i always get on my right side left side. There's also some nighttime leg cramps and substance abuse which i don't do There was a time last year during kobe. When i was doing edibles. I don't say doing edibles. I mean. I participate like i would take an edible like on the weekends especially on saturdays. 'cause giancarlo allies to take naps and that was one really good way that if i wanted to take a nap i would take an edible in that shit which knocked me out. The flipside of taking edibles was up. And i was hungry. Now if you're weightwatchers that's a bad thing if you're doing intermittent fasting. It's all good if you time it right. So how is it diagnosed again here..

"If you have a chemical imbalance by all means but here's the scary part and this is where i say. I'm over the centuries symptoms of sleep. Prowse's has been described in many ways and often tributed to a quote unquote evil presence unseen night demons in ancient times the old hag in shakespeare's romeo and juliet and alien abductors almost every culture throughout history has had stories of. I don't know the first two letters will cut off of evil creatures that terrified helpless humans at night people have long sought explanations of this mysteriously sleep time paralysis in the accompanying feelings of terror. Oga so what i just described to. You is pretty much on point. I have sleep rouse's now after i learned more about it. I also learned that. If i don't sleep on my back it won't happen. The other thing. My self awareness has kicked in is if i happen to sleep on my back. I know it's coming like i know it. I actually lean into it. I accept it. And i know it's only temporary that i've come to terms with. It's not knowing what it is in having. That should happen to you which was scary terrifying part. Are you guys. I've i've had too. Many coffee breaks going on. Need them today. Because i'm going to a concert tonight. A it's called jali and it's like if you listen to pandora music and you type up your rock. That's pretty much music that's going on tonight. So this is what the explanation as to what happens. It's a feeling of being an. It's a feeling of being conscious but unable to move it occurs when a person passes between stages of wakefulness and sleep so remember. I told you guys. Every time has happened. It's because after giancarlo has left for work so he kisses me goodbye. I wake up for a second. And i'm going to be truthful with you guys. When this was happening on the regular like once a month i actually ended up taking a sleeping pill called midnight so that when he did say good night or good morning to me and said goodbye. My body was in such deep sleep. State that i wouldn't wake up. That's how bad it was at one time like. I literally got this shit like every month because i didn't know what it was. They guard for keeping up with the kardashians. So during these transitions you may be unable to move or speak for a few seconds up to a few minutes. Some people.

"Is in the room. But you can't move your body and you can't. You can't talk. You can't scream. All you know is that you're scared to death. That's what sleep paralysis to me. So that was the first time it happened. And you end up waking up and you're just you're just terrified. You're not going to go back to sleep. Meanwhile while you're in this state you feel a presence now. This is a freaky part. You guys and i'm it's kind of scary but it's true you feel like this heaviness on your body. I'm gonna take a break. Hold on hoffy About my coffee so that was the first time it happened. And then the second time was here at the house and Yeah the same thing. I was on my back and this usually happens. Like after i've been woken up like with giancarlo says goodbye to me and i'm trying to fall back asleep but as volume find a slee and is not like that feeling where okay you you know like when you first fall asleep and you're like right away you go into that dream state and you fell like you've fallen off. He fallen off a hill. And then your body twitches is nothing like that. It's like it's just the most terrifying feeling that you you're totally conscious and you can't move and here's the thing you actually see yourself like in your nightmare. Dreamy like like moving so there was one time in fact. This just happened a couple of months ago where i went into deep sleep paralysis state and i could. I was trying to scream ono. I know what happened. I was grabbing my cell phone and it wasn't unlocking and i kept pressing and it was an you guys this the houses it is so real which makes it even more terrifying. Is that you literally feel like you are living in this moment. But you're kind of watching it like you're watching it as a secondary. It's the weirdest thing. But i'm please. If you guys have ever experienced as you know exactly what. I need the should scary so i remember grabbing myself bound as somebody is on me like press like holding me down and i feel myself trying to get my cell phone On my chest. And when i wake up out of it. My cell phone's not moved. Its right where it's supposed to be in the charter. And nothing has happened to be physically except for those like minute that one or two minutes the other things. I never really understand or know how long the actual paralysis part lasts..

"I always tell you guys are starting to run out of things to talk about. But i have to tell you. I actually have monday off. And i plan on recording like five episodes. So i don't have this stress recording the day before actually launch talk about cutting it really close but two nights ago. My topic came to me. Sleep paralysis now. Just so you understand. I did not know what sleep paralysis was. Until is the funniest thing. I just happened now. This is not something. I do on a regular basis or ever but i just happened to turn on keeping up with the kardashians The daughter the one who models. I forgot her name but the the one who not kylie the other one. She had a therapy session because she was describing that when she would sleep she would wake up in her sleep but wasn't really awake to like a nightmare. Like a real life nightmare. That kept her from talking or movie. And i was like. Oh my gosh. that's that's what i had Not all the time but the next scene was she's therapist office. And she's talking about it and she's describing. What i go through and therapists said what you have is sleep paralysis. So right away. I didn't did. Anybody would do one of two things either. Google it or put in hashtag sleep paralysis on instagram. And i realized that. I'm not alone. So what is sleep paralysis will. I'll tell you what i think is and then i'll give the actual definition that i printed out of course on web md. So i remember the first time. I i remember. I remember the first time that i actually experienced. It was the most scariest thing. I was in the condo that i used to live in. And it's so weird. Because i didn't get sleep paralysis until i started until i moved back to san diego from la or at least. That's what i remember. Remember falling asleep so giancarlo gets up early in the morning every morning and leaves for work and there's a fan that was on and the fan was maybe like on number one and as i'm falling back asleep something happens to my body where i'm asleep but like my eyes are open but i'm dreamy and all i can remember is the fan. It automatically like felt and it sounded like it went to a number three so imagine a lying in bed on your back. And there's a reason why. Say on your back and your eyes are moving around you are totally conscious of. What is what.
How to Have a Personal Branding Mindset
"Want to start sharing a little story. Which is i am. An admitted over analytical thinker. I am you know the analysis paralysis guy. Any decision in my life in my family's life in my business i have the capability of over analyzing it to the smallest degree right. I think about every possible outcome. I do the extra research to a fault to the point of paralysis to the point of not making decisions that could benefit from being made more quickly right. Am i the only one guilty of this. I don't think so right. There's a lot of us out there that that's just our personality type. And in a lot of cases that could benefit us that could be a real advantage to having the time to think things through but there is times where action and having a push to make a decision and move in a direction is going to be the best course for individuals. So i know for me. When i get the idea that if something that i'm excited about i often berry that under trying to analyze. What's the right direction. Am i doing this right. Dwayne to think about it. Is there a step need to do first. And what i would encourage you guys to do is to figure out you know. Are there things in your life that you should be taking action on first and you can look at the risk there but just decide. Can i take a step in the direction towards something that i want today. That's going to help me tomorrow. That is really going to hurt me. If it's the wrong step because you can always go backwards for a lot of decisions that you're making out there. And i bring that up as maybe there's a framework out there for us to think about and for me. I know what. I was thinking about leaving corporate and starting a business. I have lots of plans right. Bought lots of website. Your rails i even in some cases started designing a website. And trying to word. You know what it was that i thought i could do to help people in terms of like what the business would be called and would look like and what. My services were put. It was all in my mind. And i was trying to put it out there on paper but really it was just this over agonizing thought process
Couple Leaves Their W2s (During COVID!) To Go Full Time in Real Estate
"Sale. The nick welcome to the digger pockets real estate rookie. Podcast super excited to have you both on here today. Thank you excited to be here. Thanks for having us little backstory seminar. Actually guests on my old podcast. The your first real estate investment podcast. I don't remember what number. But i think it was one of my top performing podcast super. Glad to have you guys back on to the real estate ricky show to kinda share your story to before begins the deal details and all that good stuff yourself a little bit about the two of you okay. Yeah so we have been investing for about three or four years. Now we've been together since we were like fourteen or fifteen years old and are now married. So nick was the catalyst of real estate investing in decided and he was like seventeen that he was gonna start planting. The seed takes a long time for me so that was really good and once we graduated college we moved into our parents. Basement started saving money in kind of took off our real estate investing career from there. That's gre- nick. I wanna hear from you as to why when you were seventeen. Did you think that you wanted to be in real estate. Investing i mean most seventeen year olds. Don't think that we have. It's an awesome question. I wish i had a great answer for it. I think i came from like my dad was self employed so i sort of came from that environment but never had anyone in my family that was into real estate. No we knew nothing about it. I think if i recall like probably all of us i started googling and then we found bigger pockets and so that was like kind of what got me hooked at that point but yeah no family connections or anything. I think i just always had the desire to like. Wanna do more than a w. two. I didn't want to be tied to her career again. I don't know why. I was thinking that at young age but i was and then it kind of drew me in. Can you guys give us an overview of your current business like where it stands today. How many deals have you done. How many units do you guys manage. Operate own yes. So our who are investing business. We have done three deals in. Its six doors total. Where in boston massachusetts okay. I wanna know you guys over. Were there any analysis paralysis. So you wanted to you. Start thinking about this when you were seventeen. How long until you actually bought that property. Yeah so it was. It was a wile again. We were young. We went to college but what we did was post college. We moved in with. My parents lived their basement to save up. So i don't think we had a ton of like your textbook analysis paralysis. I think it was a combination of like. We couldn't afford to get started right away. So we went through the savings sort of portion. I that took us. It took us two years to get our first deal but from the time we were ready until the time we were able to get under contract on something it wasn't super long
G7 Nations to Pledge 1B Vaccine Doses for World
"Look at some of the other themes from the g. Seven summit beyond the johnson biden relationship and brexit. I think the big policy announcement george. We've about shaving vaccines with the words. Of pledging won't billion jobs how significant is this. What is significant. It's welcoming certainly listen to some of the The aid organizations medical charities. They say it's not enough. Misses a pledge which is being rolled out over the next year. Some people say they'd like to live it by the end of twenty one. But i think it is significant a big picture that g seven is an attempt by the west to show that they can deliver full the developing world that they can show leadership and talk about voting. Sometimes there's real concern in some of the western capitals china and russia in particular using vaccine's as a way of extending their influence into the developing world offering jobs with strings attached as anthony blinken. Us sexiest puts it over the course of this kind of expect to see the make pledges on tackling climate change poverty alleviation generally. So it's an important step of for seven off the four years of effective paralysis while trump was the president of the west getting together and trying to do things.
Opportunities Have Expiration Dates
"Opportunities have expiration dates. Brilliant line. I don't know about you but usually i realized that my milk has an expiration date. But i've never thought about opportunities having expiration dates. I believe it's profoundly true. Let me give you couple of examples. Friend calls you on the phone and says they have a ticket to a concert. They can get you a ticket but got thirty minutes to decide to decide now whether you want to go to the show or not. Someone sends you a message and says an old friend is in town. But they're leaving tomorrow. You want to see him. It's gotta be tonight. Opportunities have expiration dates. Those are obvious question. Obvious situations where you might see that. But i have some questions for you to think about this idea a little bit further. Have you ever missed an opportunity because you are unaware of it. Have you ever missed an opportunity. Because you let it fall down your priority list or have you ever missed an opportunity because you delayed or stuck in analysis paralysis. Well unless you are dead or delusional you got at least one. Yes to those three questions probably more than one. Yes to more than one of those questions now. Not every thing. We run across is obvious as the ticket being available or the friend being in town. Sometimes we don't know there are opportunities because we don't notice them which could be because we're not looking for them which leads me the first of two big ideas to help you take advantage of opportunities. And here's the first one you have to have opportunity radar radar simply means that you are noticing scanning looking for expecting to find
The Mystery of the Devonshire Colic
"Something that we notice if you look back in history. The truth of the matter is before the age of modern medicine people had tons of afflictions or conditions real or perceived that they couldn't quite concretely explain and with the benefit of modern science. In retrospect we can say that in many cases of folks were experiencing something that continues today as dangerous effects. it's mild lead poisoning. The most famous outbreak of this accidental lead poisoning was this thing called the devon colic indus english county in the seventeen hundreds. This condition was affecting thousands of people in here comes our laundry lists the victims primarily dudes and they were experiencing stuff like paralysis madness blindness. Death was first reported in seventeen o three and it just continued year over year to increase. I think it was seventeen. Twenty four when there was a pretty big upsurge in the number of cases and this was also a year. Here's our mystery starts. This was also a year that was noted for a bumper apple crop. Love a good bumper apple crop ben and it was the opinion of one john hudson who investigated this mysterious malady and published his findings and seventeen thirty nine. That one of the primary causes cider apple cider.
Bridging the Divide: Learning to Tend and Befriend
"And welcome friends. Thanks so much for joining us. I heard a story about a church committee in the congregation. That was ensnared in a bitter debate about the way some one of their core religious rituals supposed to be conducted. You know who is supposed to perform it. And how often and so on and it was really dividing people into different camps were becoming increasingly hostels testing friendships. So one person suggested that they seek the counsel of the oldest living member of the congregation and and it was agreed on. They send out a couple to speak with him and so they started asking questions so they said well way back than they do it this way and they described you know one compromise of how to do the ritual goes no not that way and then they said well what about this and they gave an alternative goes now not not that way and the kept going like this and finally you know distress they. So what are we supposed to do. The entire congregations arguing. Everybody's accusing each other. There's really deep conflict and mistrust. Man said that the way we did it. No we know that humans have been in conflict through the eons million the moments that we feel threatened. And it doesn't matter whether it's physically endangered our views are challenged. Our egos challenged. We quickly regress into survival. Brain reactivity which is fight. Flight are free isn't it comes off. As often as anger or hatred or defensiveness or paralysis when were dominated by fight flight. Freeze in a chronic. Way when it's ongoing
Donald Trump Didn't Have to Be Irrelevant
"Trump is irrelevant. He gives interviews that. Don't make headlines. He sends out statements that become the butt of jokes. sure he's got the era of congressional republicans but no member of the gop has the influence or the audience to be trump's messenger. Which makes him irrelevant. But this segment isn't meant to mock him. It's meant to mourn what actually could have been because donald trump didn't have to be irrelevant. Seventy four million americans voted for him in two thousand twenty like him or not. His voice matters to some people he could've spoke out in real honest ways on important issues without fear of polls and push back that guided so much of his value system in the white house. It is ironic that on the one year anniversary of trump wondering whether people could inject bleach into themselves to kill the corona virus. He told the new york post quote. I'm all in favor of the vaccine strongly. Strongly recommend it. Because it's a real life saver quote. Now he says this where was he. Months ago when the vaccine i came out while he was still president and his words could have mattered. It was even clear by his refusal to help distribute the vaccines. He wanted credit for pushing companies to develop vaccines but he didn't seem to care if they ever got into people's arms and new york and dc centric republicans. The main new york post audience. Really the people who need to hear this message. Could this be a stunt to make himself look better or any positive side effect that is just that of side effect trump could have pushed americans to get vaccinated sooner. Could've told americans that vaccines are safe. But he's so preoccupied with attacking. Lebron james and mitch mcconnell that he missed his moment to save lives now should know. Trump's message is a good one the vaccine is a lifesaver and maybe skeptics will take his advice. Which would be great for all of us. But it's likely too little too late because he's irrelevant and let's not just limit. The vaccine. trump could be relevant if he spoke to other issues affecting his base for structure. Biden's two point. Two trillion dollar infrastructure plan would benefit large swaths of trump's base. It would provide jobs to rural and suburban communities. It would repair critical infrastructure. It would expand broadband access and trump has good reason to support the biden plan because he actually pitched a two trillion dollar infrastructure plan just last year but that's just not trump. of course he's not advocating for anything that might give joe biden a win even if it helps his base because it doesn't help him so he condemns the plan and that's been trump's problem since he came down that infamous escalator at trump tower to declare his candidacy for president. Trump doesn't want to help others if it doesn't help him he doesn't push vaccines because many in his base are against them. He doesn't push it infrastructure plan because it's a democratic plant and he's still out going on fox to claim that he won the election and putin who's currently killing alexei navalny in prison is an okay guy so perhaps he should be irrelevant but has claimed political power is the paralysis that elected republicans have in breaking away from him against what the trump base is against. Even if it's not rooted in fact you can't be for policies that a democrat would support. You have to be cool with anti-democratic impulses like voter suppression. That's where the republican party is. Right now cova conspiracies. Defending the capital riot has overblown or committed by antifa. Blm thinking republican election officials in states that correctly. Certified the vote for joe. Biden are traders and frantically pushing legislation to make sure that never happens again but when this is what the party is about. How else could they possibly win
Neuralink Shows Monkey With Brain Chip Implants Playing Video Game
"How's this for a mind game. Neuralink the brain implant company from entrepreneur. Elon musk released a video recently. During which claiming monkey was playing the video game pong with this mind. Yes this sounds incredibly science fiction but this is apparently something that has happened so this is how they broke it down in the video.

Is they took two of them and they put him on each side of the monkey's brain according to the video then what they did is these links than track. The parts of the that are focused on hand and arm movements and they're recording the neural activity there. They take that activity and decode it and then once they're eight they decoded those neuralink's are able to predict the monkey's hand movements in real time. So then what they did. Is they do all this. And then later on in the video they showed the monkey playing a game of pong and the paddle that used to keep the ball moving. He was basically moving it by thinking where he wanted to move it. So if the paddle moved up or down he was thinking that would move and they demonstrated this wear initially. They started with him. using a joystick and moving it around eventually they'd unplug the joystick and he'd still be moving but it was all coming from whatever he was thinking his head about where he wanted to paddle to go. So all right. I'm trying to think about whether actually having brain implants and me would help at all but So exactly how this neuralink envision using these implants bread so according to a quote from the video They said quote. Our goal is to enable a person with paralysis a computer or phone with the brain activity alone. Which again sounds really. It's it's very promising You know someone who is dealing with paralysis. If they aren't able to use their hands with their arms this allows them to do things with just thinking it and they don't have to worry about that so the idea would be that You'd have these implants and they would help people who've suffered from really serious physical injuries and still be able to function do kind of everyday things. it's really fascinating stuff. It almost doesn't feel real and watching the video. It just felt it didn't feel real either like you know in the back of my mind your like. Someone's playing pong in the background. We just don't know it but it's super fascinating. I'm really curious to see what develops from
Street Photography in New York City, with Gerard Exupery
"Back to another episode of this week and photo. I'm your host frederik van johnson today on the show got gerard exupery. He's a veteran new york city based street photographer. That knows more about street photography than than or has forgotten more about it than i probably will ever know about street photography. We're gonna dive into that a little bit as well as what. It's like shooting in and around new york city now and before pandemic all that stuff going to talk about gear all this stuff so gerard. Welcome to the show man. How's it going very well. Glad to be here. Yeah it is good to hear man. I'm excited to chat. So we've got you know. The the john mara of photography. And then this genre of let's call it of photojournalism or that that world of shooting. What's the difference. What's the difference between street photography. And that i think that in journey with photo journalism you tend to think in terms of projects. Not just one image. You know a a series of images that tell a complete story and i think with straight photography. is generally just one image. Okay okay has got to tell the story one at a time. So let let's rewind back to the time to. Let's let's do origin story thing so cue. The flashback so the origin story of girard. Where what was that moment where you knew that. Okay i feel like. I need to be taking pictures of this. This amazing city. I live in well on my planet. We didn't really have photography. And when i came to earth. And i'm sorry all right more and you know it's funny. It's the only thing i've ever wanted to do since As far back as i can remember one of my earliest memories of my father staying his role affleck's in my hand. While i took the first picture took and which was a ship underneath the verrazano bridge and it just stuck in my mind. He passed away about a year after that. And you know. I it just all these feelings about photography and loss. Let's say i don't know all came together. And i just knew that this is the direction i wanted to go. Yeah yeah and it's a good direction. It's the world photography from my standpoint on of you agree with this but it's it's equal parts. Geeky ray is we like the technology and all that stuff and then it psychology you when you're dealing with the public and trying to get the right shot or get the shot or permission to do the shot and the you know the all of this stuff in between psychology science physics wrapped up into the time machine that we call a camera to fast forward to now the president or the recent the recent present. Let's call it like this last this past five five or so years me decade your adventures in and around new york city. The i can't imagine being a street photographer. There for just an extended period of time when i'm there is overload. It's just like what. Do i take pictures of two months. It's too much going on you get analysis paralysis. What would have been some of the standout experiences you've had in city over the past decade or so that you like okay. I got to tell this bar story. Wow pick were got to pick one. I think defining Well this is. It's further back than ten years but sure for for the finding event was i was involved in a robbery and a camera store. And it's a long story but rather traumatic thing. Somebody was killed and and i got roughed up a little bit and it was it was. It wasn't pleasant. But it was. After that i i realized well putting yourself out there making yourself vulnerable and taking pictures strangers asking or you know. I don't think covertly taking pictures of people is for me. It's just not right so if you're going to ask or you're just going to be obvious bat it you've got to put yourself out and up until that point I didn't know what i was expecting to happen but After that i figured well. What's the worst that can happen. I already found out what the worst that can happen. And it really It helped me in. Maybe be taught me to be very aware of my surroundings almost in a comfortable way though. So that okay. Let's not ever forget. I've gone into situations where drug dealers on a corner. And i was taking a picture of this house that was closed and abandoned actually in patterson not beard city paterson new jersey which is really exciting. We've got a water tower waterfall. There you go and a crappy movie was made by. Jim jarmusch bad it. It lasts two years ago and any case so i am standing there taking pictures and You know. I hear this guy walking up to me and it was interesting because there were like three. Get two or three guys on each corner but not the corner i was on the house was and i'm i'm taking pictures and i hit. This guy comes up behind the camera up to my eye. And i can hear him. I'm aware of him and he said. Hey what are you doing. I told them flat out. I'm taking pictures of buildings that have been foreclosed on You know and properties that have been abandoned families that have gone kicked out. And what have you. And he goes off and you know then he goes How much do you think they want that house i should. Oh i don't know but whatever it is going to be pretty cheap
A Father's Fight
"Spastic paraplegia fifty or spg. Fifty is a neurodegenerative disorder that progresses slowly from infancy patients experienced developmental delays specificity and paralysis in the lower and upper limbs and microcephaly among other symptoms. It's an autosomal recessive disorder. Which means that. The child inherits the disease causing genetic mutation from both parents. I'm joined today by terry. Pure volek s whose son. Michael was diagnosed. This ultra rare condition. Terry and his wife georgia founded the organization cure. Pg fifty in order to find gene therapy treatment for michael and all other children affected by this disease. He will tell us his family's story and give us an update on how research is going for his son. Welcome terry thank you so much for being here. We really appreciate being able to share your journey with you. So can you tell us about your family's journey with this disease. So on december seventeen two thousand seventeen michael. Our youngest son was born. It was pretty much uneventful. We went to the hospital mill the night. My wife said her you know her. Water broke our third child so we were prepared. We got there. The midwife is there and michael came out in pretty much like an hour and a half. We were home within three hours so it was. It was very quick. It was completely uneventful and he was a perfect little kid he was you know he was quiet. He was the perfect child. Around six months of age we noticed that he wasn't raising his hands and he wasn't following the milestones are other children. Were following in. My wife said know. Something's up so he brought him to the doctor in the noticed that his head was starting to fall off. The charter wasn't growing as expected. And he he had something called low muscle tone to that kind of fell into the odyssey of finding out what was wrong with him. And i think it's important to note here especially for any parents that have gone through this themselves. How agonizing this step can be especially when it turns out that it's this sort of rare disease. I imagine there were all kinds of tests and all kinds of doctors. Who were just telling you that. They didn't know what it was. And how heartbreaking. That can be for parents obviously are. I thought you know what he has. Low muscle tone as you know. It looks like he's head is smaller but don't worry about it. He'll he'll catch up. And then you know that kind of lasted three months and then we were like okay. Will he still not progressing therapies and he is improving but you know his head still isn't growing. What's going on so then we went to sick. It's hospital in toronto. And we went to infectious disease. Because i was traveling at the time to latin america and he thought maybe he adds zeka so we went down the path of siyavizy ca testing. And all the other infectious diseases. What you didn't have any of them obviously and then we moved into neurology. Team did an ira. And they found that they they saw few. You know things that were not normal but nothing major. And that's when they started doing you know the panel testing which came back all negative and then finally let. We were very lucky that they did the genetic testing and then on april second of of twenty nine thousand nine. He was diagnosed with this. You know terrible disease. And how did you find doctors that were able to tell you more information about this disease. We were really lucky. That won't april second. We were told to go home. Love michael that there was nothing really the can do for him that he will most likely be completely paralyzed with limited brain function and As parents we were absolutely devastated by drove home that night. And i honestly i don't remember how even got home. Allie member his crying on the street in the car. But we found a family 'cause we're hearing the paper. I don't know what happened. I think i lost it but denied the emailed us what the disease was in the diagnosis and we found a family that had spg forty seven out of boston and call them up that night in a panic and the as she walked us through the disease and and who are the specialists and they took care of us for the next two weeks while we mourned this significance piece of our lives. It was almost like a while. It is like a piece of our soul was taken away from us. That's a really amazingly lucky to be able to find a family and have them be so willing to help you out especially in those early days will not just not the lucky that there are. She already going in the path of gene therapy. So not only do they tell us what the disease prognosis was. But they were telling us what they were doing for their disease and for their gene therapy program and spg. Forty-seven is part of a protein complex called ap four and under that ap four there's four genes their ap for eight before and one s one g one and be one in ours was the same essence. We all have the same disease so we were very fortunate. Karachi went on that path and and and kind of guided us for the next two weeks on what we should be doing and we took it on and did it ourselves from
When might we see more cases in WA's outbreak?
"Hello welcome to khurana. Cost a daily podcast. All about the coronavirus. I'm health reported taken tyler physician and journalist alter norman swan. It's tuesday the second february. That's right and the second day of perth and surrounds his five die lockdown which they've gone into because arto quarantine worker has tested positive for. What's now being confirmed to be the strain of coronavirus. That's being called the uk strain and so norman. Seeing a five looked down. We know that it takes longer than five days for the virus to incubate in. Someone's body so i can. We talk about what you do when you're trying to control of virus in its very early stages where you'd have to say first of all five days. He's actually at the lower end of the of the incubation period. So it's almost one incubation period. Not quite so. The there are key elements of control. I is social. Distancing and lockdown is an extreme form of social distancing where you don't know where the viruses remember. This farce is not spread evenly. Eighty percent of people don't spread the virus twenty percent do and they do through clusters so this man has been all over paris. he's been may lands. Which is where he lives. He's been joondalup far north. He's been in the city and so at any one of the so he might not be a superspreader himself but he might have spread to other people who then pass it on a super spreading environment like we saw in sydney. So that's that's the problem is that you get these clusters. And the classics stay underground for a while before they burst out and reveal themselves. And that's the prospect so what they're doing here is the right thing is that they're clamping down on social distancing so the virus cannot spread any further than it already has or you minimize that so. That's one element. The second element is testing and testing has got to be in really large numbers of west australian tens of thousands. So that just in case you there's a case out there that you're not finding you just want to be sure that you're really massively testing in chance that something is out there in a random way and people have caught it where we're at surprise not just in the contact areas where you might have been in coz in mayland or or wherever so. He's talking about testing nine omen but we have seen a lot of testing and they haven't been any more cases least as of yesterday. And i think that this man might have been infected around the twenty-fifth so we're may be getting into a timeframe where we could be saying positives. Yes but the testing rates are just gathering in numbers so the weren't that many tests yesterday for a city of six million people so it got really multiply to maybe ten times that number of tests. I think there were three thousand or tests reported overnight. So that's that was only in half a day so the numbers of just got to ramp up. Then the next thing is that which is about contact tracing so the already got onto the contact tracing identified sixty or seventy people so far context. Those people have got to be quarantined regardless of their status. Because they're the most likely people who are going to become positive and in the northern beaches of sydney a very significant. I can't coach the numbers. But a very significant percentage of people who became positive in that in the clusters that remarriage from the northern beaches positive in quarantine. They were already isolated for fourteen days. So you don't want people becoming positive and about you wanted to become positive when they're home in quarantine or hotel quarantine so those are the elements of control and if it goes size the strategy or queensland then there won't be any more cases they'll have identified them under control and it may not be necessary to go the full five days but it just allows you to get things under control contact tracers to get on top of it and five days is much better than a grumbling. Thing which you really paralyzes the city for for days and days and days if not weeks which is what happened in was the under control done a great job but it lasted a long time and right through christmas so it is looked down. When are we gonna have good indication of whether we're good or whether it's more of an outbreak large testing numbers. Not finding anybody. So let's take some questions from our audience This person saying they've heard that a vaccinated senator in the us has been infected with covid after getting shot. And we know that there's a proportion of people who become infected that have ongoing health issues. Do we know whether someone who's had the coronavirus vaccine is more or less or the same amount likely to get long term health problems from covid. We don't know that yet. there is an right. There is a relationship between severity infection in vancouver but people who get mild infection do get it as well so we don't know the answer to that question. We'll only know as the months go by often when people get infected is after the first does the second does. And that's been the situation in israel as well so you do get partial protection but not for protection so that we don't we just don't know the answer to that question
The Spotlight Effect: No one is paying attention to you
"Eleanor roosevelt once. Said you must do the thing you think you cannot do. I'm gonna tell you a little story about the beginning days of this podcast in twenty sixteen. I began this podcast on a complete wim. I noticed that. I had more freedom and flexibility with my time when i became an entrepreneur and i felt compelled to do something that gave back. Podcasting was becoming more popular at the time. And i wanted to give it a try but i knew absolutely nothing about how to do a podcast. I didn't know how to record. I didn't know how to edit. I didn't know how to get my episode out there once it was created. I didn't know how to book gas. How to interview people how to promote myself how to collaborate with other podcasters and on and on and on but i did it anyway and i sucked it was objectively bad and occasionally i actually go back to those early days of the podcast and i listened to my initial episodes. I cringe my way through them. They are awful but the thing. Is you want to know how many people listen to my first episodes back then less than twenty less than twenty downloads per episode and compared to what things look like. Now that's nothing yet so many when we stumble through something that's new or big or unfamiliar or ambiguous. We think everyone is watching us. We second-guessed and pick apart our decisions behaviors and failures because we feel like we are on a stage for everyone to see and to some extent. That's true. I mean in business and in anything we publicly do. Our actions and their results are typically available for people to see but in reality very peop- very few people are actually watching the stage that you think you're on it's as though ninety. Five percent of the audience is facing away from you. They're not even watching so today on this episode. I want to focus on something called the spotlight effect. This is the tendency we have to overestimate. How much other people notice about us. We tend to think there's a spotlight on us at all times highlighting. All of our mistakes are are flaws for all the world to see and to illustrate this effect. Let's take a really quick detour into some research conducted by a set of psychologists cornell in their study they had students where t shirts that either had flattering or potentially embarrassing images depicted on them and after wearing the shirts around in public. The students were asked to estimate how many people would remember what was on their shirt. And guess what they significantly over estimated. They believe that more people were paying attention to them than actually were. This is the spotlight effect and this tendency of ours can impact the decisions we make the risks we take and are alternate success in business. Now i began this episode with that quote from eleanor roosevelt. For a reason. You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Because that is a near constant in business one of the big challenges and businesses that we constantly bump up against obstacles that we think we can't overcome and then somehow we do them. But here's the thing if you're constantly having to overcome barriers and move through obstacles that are new and bigger than what you're used to an ambiguous and difficult it's inevitable that you'll stumble a bit or even fail the first or second or fifteenth time and as humans. We're social beings. It's baked into our dna. Our minds use a handful of tricks to get us to be overly concerned with the thoughts and opinions and judgments of others and the spotlight effect is one of those tricky little tricks. And there's no time when that's more apparent than when you're constantly having to stumble over barriers and obstacles that are new ambiguous and difficult the fear and anxiety that it can bring. I mean it's crippling. And if we give into our minds overreacting tendencies. We can quickly be pulled into a cycle of paralysis over analyzing our every move waiting until the path is one hundred percent clear before we take the first step and exactly. None of that is conducive to building a successful business. You'll make me. You'll hear me make this next point repeatedly on these friday episodes business success is born out of failure. You see failure in business isn't really failure. It's a lesson. It's impossible to move forward in business without experiencing a moderate degree of failure. And letting other people's watching is especially when those watching is our over estimated it's fatal for your business.
The new richest person in the world
"Richest guy in the world and he's got a problem and he wants our help last week. Elon must tesla. Ceo became the world's richest person. Beating out amazon's jeff bezos for the title. At least for now and now that he's got more money than anyone else on the planet. Musk has a classic mo money moog problem problem trying to figure out how to get rid of some of that money here. Talking about that is rica. It's teddy schlieffer. Hey daddy hey. How's it going good. Let's let's talk about this very specific problem. That eland moscow has that only the world's richest person can have first of all. Let's discuss How rich elon musk is. What's his his wealth. As of today ish so as of today ash it's north of one hundred ninety billion dollars. It's been over two hundred billion dollars for Sometimes this week and it's largely because of this pretty extraordinary run for alonzo. Main company tesla which has seen its stock. Go up seven hundred percent in county or twenty twenty. So he's had an incredible year which has created this this weird phenomenon where late two thousand nineteen elon. Musk was somewhere around. The twenty billion dollars of net worth and suddenly he's a mere twenty million and suddenly his net worth has ten. Fold whatever whatever word you want to use for that And it's been a pretty extraordinary development. And now you had the situation where He's the wealthiest person in the world and it doesn't just mean there's going to be questions about philanthropy but kind of more broadly. I mean the richest person in the world tends to become almost as avatar for american capitalism. Right obviously people laugh who are upset about income inequality they take the richest person in the world which was once bill gates. And then it was. Jeff bezos now. It's going to be on. Musk and that person becomes a symbol for what's wrong with america and there is so a lot is now going to have this. Sort of new level of scrutiny. That he hasn't had up to date and must someone who has a lot of who generates a lot of attention Already people people love his cars. They love his company. They love paying attention to them. They love to hate him so it's not like he he's like wife lower But but it is a new level of scrutiny and this this level of wealth may not stick around right. It's historically stocks that go up seven hundred percent year don't always retain that level so he may go back to being a mere twenty billionaire at some point but for the for the meantime he's the richest person in the world so How much do you think he intends to give away so musk has said that he basically plans to get rid of all the money in some way or another i mean. He said that he wants to spend Half of his money on problems here on earth and half of his money on problems on outside of earth and specifically to develop a civilization on mars. Musk is obviously also the founder of spacex company. That's trying to do interplanetary spaceflight. But musk has also signed the giving pledge which is something that lots of billionaires have signed to give away at least half of their money either in their lifetimes earned their will but taking a step back. This was all when he was much poorer so to speak. I mean this was. This decade can described as poor when he was a millionaire poorer poorer. And look it's not We'll make light of this this problem but there is this age right now in american capitalism where there are extremely wealthy. People who are accumulating assets and they honestly. I don't really know what to do with it right. They almost become asset managers. Where you know they hire family offices that can get pretty big whose job it is is to basically keep the money from at least not depreciating And it does raise questions about. What should this money be doing. Because if it's just sitting there on some wealth management account you know obviously a lot of the reason why billionaires justify being billionaires is this belief that they're gonna do good with the world so don't tax us too highly. Yeah so let's let's let's talk about that. I mean you you've covered this Several times for recode basically the the billionaires have special problem which is difficult for them to give money away and one is explained pretty succinctly that unless they give a lot away. The money keeps accumulating just through sort of basic interest But and i mean it seems like you could solve that by giving more of it away and it seems like a lot of them are paralyzed about sort of not knowing the right way to put it to work and they end up sort of doing nothing yeah So so where do you think. Musk falls in that is is. He fancied himself. Sort of a you know contrarian Does he have a different plan than the average billionaire. Yeah i mean. I think in a lot of ways he at least has a point of view and claims that he is clear eyed about what he wants to do with it right. Lots of billionaires Succumb to what some people call analysis paralysis. The idea that like. I have no idea what to do with the money. So right i'm gonna do nothing and maybe figured out a musk. Obviously he's about fifty years old. And he's maniacally hard worker That's how he stylized himself so he said he basically doesn't have too much time to think about these things but as someone who signed the giving pledge at least in theory should be giving away a hundred billion dollars which would make it bigger than the gates foundation. This could be theoretically if he falls his philanthropic pledges in letter. At least this could be one of the world's most important philanthropies so like the stakes are pretty damn high.
How monkeys played an instrumental role in the development of polio vaccines
"In the nineteen forties. America was under a constant threat from polio. A disease that had a then unknown cause and devastating effects especially in children. It spread quickly through unclean water and unwashed hands leading to symptoms like nausea fatigue. Fever and a stiffening of the body summers especially saw surges infections particularly around swimming holes leading to post polio paralysis and in some cases death on average thirty five thousand people were disabled each year. According to the centers for disease control and prevention president franklin delano roosevelt was among the most notable people to get the condition putting a face to a still uncertain disease. A vaccine was desperately needed as scientists learned about the transmission process including the fact that anyone could be a carrier in the next few years rival scientists jonas and albert sabin worked with teams in their labs on two completely different vaccines. Sabin worked on an oral vaccine. While sulk created an injectable vaccine that using a kill version of polio in the book polio and american story. David m ocean ski writes about the urgency of work. During the time quote. I talk there was reason to hurry the year. Nineteen fifty two was the worst polio year. On record with more than fifty seven thousand cases nationwide the headlines screamed of plague season and polio time. Twenty one thousand victims suffered permanent paralysis and about three thousand died from the very beginning of the polio epidemic. Monkeys were considered to be essential for research before human trials could take place becoming the unsung heroes of the fight to defeat the disease was through animal research that scientists i discovered that there were three strains of the deadly disease. The monkeys were purchased at a high cost from india and the philippines and shipped to the united states. Many died in transit so the national foundation for infantile paralysis now known as the march of dimes began overseeing their import in nineteen forty nine. A foundation established a special facility known as ot farms and rural south carolina to process the monkeys arriving from abroad oak tree farms operated in the picnic colony a beaufort county in coastal south carolina. Originally called the prichard bill primate center. The forty acre or sixteen hectare tract of land along. The river was called by local newspapers. The ellis island for thousands of monkeys from india naturalist john. Hamlet had the job of finding a space for the primate center. That was both connected to deep water ports and airports but also remote enough for neighbors the area he chose closely approximated the natural habitats of the monkeys with its abundance of shady long leaf pines and a mild climate. The monkeys were originally brought into savannah. Georgia one of the region's biggest ports and taken by truck the thirty odd miles or fifty some kilometers to the farm. When air travel became more popular they were flown by a london and new york before travelling by train to the low country. Once they arrived at the farm veterinarians treated the two thousand or so recess and sign a mogus monkeys before clearing them for transport to research facilities around the country. The monkeys spent twenty one days. Getting acclimated and eating a special diet was scientists carefully monitoring their status many went to sell nukes facility in pittsburg and sabin in ann arbor where they were given vaccines to test the vaccine. Strength against the three strains of poliovirus a few locals were aware of the research that was going on at the farm. Despite rumors of people encountering the animals we were unable to discover any opposition to the research facility perhaps because it was not well known and also because opposition to using animals and testing was not very common at the time in the united states. The movement against animal testing didn't pick up steam until around nineteen eighty in any case. The farms purpose wasn't permanent. Once sox polio vaccine was deemed a success and released to the public in nineteen fifty-five the work of qatif arms was no longer necessary and the facility closed in nineteen fifty-nine saban's oral vaccine came into use in nineteen sixty one the foundation that had established the facility. Its attention to reducing premature births. The monkeys found new homes and labs across the country. According to a former employee named louise crawford things at the farm were left just as they were including the monkey cages. A caretaker kept the grass and plant life at bay. The lab was locked up ready for someone new to take on the important task of preparing monkeys for research but that day never came in nineteen eighty the land and its contents were sold to development group. The lab equipment was donated to a local school science department while a farmer claimed the former monkey cages for his own animals. Today acreage along. The river is mostly residential and privately owned thanks to south and saban's vaccines polio cases of plummeted from three hundred and fifty thousand nine. Nineteen eighty eight to just twenty two in two thousand seventeen
Ultimate Gamer Brings Esports to Times Square for New Years Eve
"We are talking video games on New Year's Eve while Time Square will be packed with people excited to bring out this hellish year. The Times Square spirit will still come through with a virtual event through a partnership between Ultimate Gamer and Global real estate firm. Jamestown Ultimate Gamer is an online tournament Palm like community. And today we're talking to Steve Suarez ultimate gaming CEO Steve, welcome to the show. Thank you so much for having me Mitch. It's an honor to be here. I'm excited to talk with Steve primarily about New Year's Eve event. And then also talking about Ultimate Gamer In general first at this mie event Ultimate Gamer will host a variety of straights including ones from a sports organizations Furia and misfits gaming you'll have appearances from Hip Hop dong. Gamers well, he's a friend of the show and they will host tournaments in fortnite Apex League of Legends and Valor and there's also a charity element as a Christopher & Dana Reeve foundation will run educational content and fundraising to support people living with paralysis starting December 19th fans could download the virtual New Year's Eve app called v n y e or visit vnyl to find streams and giveaways. We're going to get discussion about what Ultimate Gamer is and how this event came together. But first Steve Woodgate was here and why he gave a celebration they first think of ninja trying to do a fortnite dance in front of a crowd of less than enthusiastic New Yorkers boss wants you to targeting this day for another gaming event. Why did you feel like gaming fits so well for New Year's Eve? Well Mitch, look Times Square New Year's Eve is probably one of the most iconic events of the year, you know with my background and and events and production. That's kind of the mecca of all events, right? It's Washed by they have over a billion Impressions every year and it's televised by stations all around the world and this year, you know, unfortunately due to the pandemic New Year's Eve in Times Square is going to look a little bit different. So so we thought that it was a great idea to partner with the folks at Jamestown and create a virtual experience, which is very interactive and and and allow this gaming generation to experience virtual New Years Eve New Year's Eve in Times Square, but virtually, it's actually kind of the way I'd rather odd experience New Year's Eve in Times Square.

Defeating 5 Years of Analysis Paralysis to Do 4 Deals in 2020 with Jacqueline Smith
"Jacqueline smith good morning. Thanks so much for joining us today. Thank you for having me. We're excited to dive into to more about your story. So i guess sure with myself showed listeners. A little bit about you. How you got started in real estate. Investing sarah guess mainly this year we started actively investing the beginning of twenty twenty. But before that we did some live flips my parents were stuck on is making sure we didn't have like super high home loans. So we bought a foreclosures foreclosures. Our first house. They were able to help us get it fixed up. And they purchased it on their equity in this is when we were like nineteen so it was a while back. So we got that on their equity. We've fixed it up basically got it kind of strategy but we did our loans were like only fifty five thousand in so we were able to have some good equity in it just getting started off so we did that. Twice led the nose for about eight years altogether between the two and then we were able to take that equity kind of build our house that we were wanting on some land and then we took the rest of equity. We're using to invest. That's that's awesome. Yeah most people don't think of doing a flip is there. I kinda home purchase especially since you were nineteen years old. Yes what drew you to that at such a young age i i just remember sitting there looking on the computer at houses all the time and we were. I don't know. I've always kinda liked the do the rehab type stuff. I mean not at that time. I'd never done it before but my parents are pretty handy. And that kinda helped definitely for it so we got the first task for like thirty seven thousand. It was just crazy. 'cause it was on a couple of acres we ended up selling it for about one hundred twenty nine thousand so at start us off like amazing so while you into the rehab with that and then of course your sweat equity. Yeah so we had at least twenty five thousand in it. But i would say my parents kinda they were there like every day working at that time and putting it in psalm share that put in some money that they just didn't mean tell us about or whatever so they were like stuck on who. We don't want your loan above fifty five thousand start so that's career and being your. I still living flip where you actually really tracking the cost. Either right mean it's going to be you're thinking what is your primary residence and like oh let's money into it so they were helping us put a lot of money into it. We would put some here in there and we didn't move in until about halfway done so i don't know if you've heard like we're from hindi. Anna in there is like this big tornado. That went through at one time in. That was right when we got most of our stuff rehabbed so we got all new siding on the front new windows put in everything and then this is when we were living there at that time and in the tornado came through in ripped out all the siding on the front all the windows southern which that wasn't it wasn't horrible damage but we were able to make an insurance claim that got us like a free new roof on the house which we were originally going to do so that part benefited us in some ways but it was kinda of hectic for a little bit but it was livable at the time we moved in so just doing stuff here and there you hear those stories all the time you know about the insurance money actually being also a benefit he investors because they're able to do a little bit more so you have this. I live in flip. When you're nineteen. You said that you did to over the course of eight years. A how long were you in that first property before you guys in the one that we lived in that one for about five years we had our first two children there got married him then moved in there but then the second one we lived there for five years and then we put an offer on a hubs zoo property. That was another foreclosure we spent. I think we purchased for one hundred and seventy thousand so we were able to take the equity from that first house in all the profits and put into that one we ended up with about one hundred thousand dollar loan on it that we did the full live and rehab. But it wasn't anything major just all new carpet on new pain everywhere and it was great. It was huge house but we were able to sell that one. Great also mixture. Did you say hub zoo. Yeah had zoo. They have foreclosures. Like it's another website that you can find closures of kim against that a bit. Never heard of that website before. Is it like a typical auction site or you able to see the property before just walks through the buying process on their depends. You can go online. And some of them are owner like they're occupied and say you're not able to get into but is when luckily we were able to see with our realtor and she got us in and so we were able to put in on it and then we're also able to get a mortgage to get the house so it wasn't so bad that they wouldn't lend us on alone so that workout that's awesome. I think a lot of newer investors. And you aren't even using this as an investment but a lot investing have some hesitation around going th-this online auction sites because there's a lot of restrictions but it sounds like for the. I'm the same way like even now looking at auction sites. It kind of. I don't want to not be able to get into the property but that one works out great poorest because we were able to see all of it and check it out arson. It was actually about a mile down the road from the other house we had so it was a quick move. Now you guys have these living flips in the new said. It was earlier this year. The truck started investing with intention so walks through the transition and in how you guys wanted that point yet so our main goal was to buy some land and built our house on it before. I mean also along with investing so we were able to do that. We moved in last october into our house. And then we pulled our equity out the beginning of this year in them. We were able to start using equity lines to invest. That was kind of before. I knew about all the hard money lending and was afraid to jump in with all of that so i'm sure we could start a lot sooner but our equity is what we're going forth that point once. Now that you have your primary residence you did your to live and flips. How did you get started into actually buying your first investment property. What did that kind of look like. Did you analyze deals for years. Did you say okay. Wake up. One day we're investing. Let's by no. Yeah so i've been analyzing for like probably five years at least i ask Flips was kind of our steps in reading books. Every you know. I was reading them all the time. But i wasn't really jumping in like i would do all the reading but never really did action. I i never went to any meet ups or anything like that until this year. Which was like a huge change. So that definitely helps. We'll

You agree with that sure. The underlying mechanism is believed to involve Involve a dysfunction in rem sleep and so you're rapid eye movement sleeping. Diagnosis is based on a person's description. Other conditions that could present similar similarly include narcolepsy. We talked about that a tonic seizures. So that's Like when your body freezes up on you and I'm going to mispronounce this one so bad hypo climatic periodic paralysis. Hypo clear climatic.

Now it's not saying that if you have sleep rouse's you're going to get dementia or you're going to get Parkinson's disease. It just has similar effects to the body as those things do which to me. It really points to it. Not being paranormal at all. It seems to be more biological than anything else. A French neuroscientist by CAL Noticed that was my best French Berry. Good all feel. Sorry listening sitting. Yeah Mike Juries Notice that it was happening. In the back of the ponds of the brain stem an area called the sublet road dorsal nucleus. This plays a critical role in muscles ovonic during rem sleep. So as I said can you put that in layman terms of what's happening? Yes yes I can. So what so? When this is happening is during rem sleep often. Rem Sleep is supposedly our deepest Sleep and it's the one that's the most beneficial for us so people that have rem disorders Which by the way great band. Rem Day The people that have these disorders always have Always physical effects to them because this is like the the most needed portion of your sleep and your body goes through cycles it you know. I think it goes through. Rem Sleep three or six times in an evening. I'm not sure the exact number but it does do of this. So what's happening? They believe is that people are kind of waking up journey. Rem Now rem the is to move rapid eye movement and it allows you to still breathe. Because you'd be dead if you weren't able to breathe during this so it allows your chest to move and allows your eyes to move. But what's interesting is it does not want the other parts of your body to move at the same time is it. The reason for this is that you would During drain you would kick yourself for hit. Somebody do something So your body kind of locks itself out. It tells the muscles to shut off and what they're saying is during sleep. Paralysis is that you're You're actually waking up during the rem portion of your sleep when you're half in dream and half still or half away so you're able to see around you but you still have some dream aspects so imagine that you were having a dream and all of a sudden you woke up the real world is around you but it took one portion of your dream. This usually is during the during a nightmare to so it would take the scariest part of your dream. Bring that front and center to you. But Locke the rest of your body just allow you to move your eyes and keep breathing disaster in. Yes that makes sense. Yes so what do you think about that?.

So our question was Do Jack The ripper and his victims still haunt this earth? I still say you should have went with. Or Does Jack The ripper or his victims still haunt the earth. Well we didn't we won't with both because that's what I talked about in the episode So we actually had yes thirty. Three percent no sixty seven percent. So you know that's me. Yeah no I will not be listening to anymore complaining or lutes. No do the pools. Because you've won the last two holes three I think or three Poles my friends. So My neighbors out there This one I need you to come through for me because it's really. I've got some creepy stories today. So absolutely do. But I'M GONNA I'm GonNa say this right now scientifically. I don't think that they have merit effort. The debate though to okay now that we got all of our other business taking care of. It's time to get into this episode. Rebecca This episodes topic is something. That really really terrifies me actually. I. I'm not playing this up. I am super freaked out about anything that affects your sleep and did this horrifying degree. It's just amazing. Well I mean whether it's paranormal or scientific still scary doesn't matter now and I'm not one hundred percent sure where this fear of mine comes from. It is something that I've had for a very long time It just really creeps me out. I I actually get the chills and I feel very uneasy talking even about sleep paralysis so this is going to be a very hard episode for. Well I drew. I felt that way even reading about it I was like is reading about this caused me to perhaps have this happen to me like yeah. It was scary research. Yeah so let me tell you how I came up with the idea for this concept It was at Elgin Fringe Festival. I I might have tossed out the idea to rebecca before then. But we didn't really. It wasn't something that we were super excited about or have that much interest in in pursuing. Necessarily I mean it was always on the back burner kind of thing but at Elgin fringe fest. We were hanging out with some of the other memorium development artists Make sure you check out memorial development dot com to see all the stuff that they have going on Me and Rebecca are part of memorium development and We you know totally support the other actors in there. I am not sure how we actually started talking about the topic but out of nowhere. Our friend Amanda just started telling us about her experience and I was legit horrified. I mean let me say this. Amanda comes across to me like. She's a total skeptic. Bro Remember that's non gender specific there But she clearly isn't you know I think maybe what scares me? The most is how many people experienced some form of sleep paralysis and almost everyone of them attribute this to the paranormal. They do. It's a it's a a six percent of the population or it's it's a big a big percentage of that a the largest majority believe that it's paranormal. Why what how? Now to ten people one. Outta ten people will experience some form of sleep paralysis throughout their lives and it could be a one off episode or it could be a ongoing thing. Yeah so even if you have never had it before. It's good to know about it in preparation. 'cause one in ten people will could happen to you anytime right. Oh so are you ready to go story? Yeah so This sounds so happy about that. I am like I am. I really might have just pooped. My pants even talking just saying all of our children listeners. Just laughed really hard till they like. Good this one. So I picked a story. It's not super long But I wanted to just give a traditional when you think of sleep process trying to define what it is kind of what people often think of a modified it a little bit. It's from a website called no sleepless nights dot com. That's that's a really cool sounding website. Yeah right All right you feel a weight on your chest pressing you down and preventing you from sitting up and not only is your whole body paralyzed. But you can't so much as move your lips to call out for help. You're not sure who. Or what is pushing on your chest STU. It is too dark to see. You just know that there's a presence there something strange something frightening after minutes hours you are finally able to move your toes and then suddenly you are awake in the feeling has passed. You then stumbled to the bathroom to make sure your face isn't decorated with demonic symbols. It was a classic case of sleep. Paralysis wow right just a terrifying thought just waking up yet move happening to you. Oh my God. This is so creepy to me. So what we what we were thinking about doing is playing amandas interview because we did get a chance to actually talk to Amanda about this on video or whatever resume just recently and We got her complete story. The one that gave me the chills from that night one that horrified me the one that I had trouble sleeping because I thought of Amanda Story as I was laying in bed that night. Yeah we thought we'd play it for you Be Mindful that this. The audio quality is not going to be great and the audio quality in go sleep is not up to what it usually is because we are using zoom so that we could socially distance ourselves and although you know Amanda does a great job. There are some audio issues with the with the interview. But we still believe that you get the idea and I might have to take out a couple of words because while ghostly might be. Pg Thirteen. Amanda isn't necessarily PG thirteen. We'll see she is but it's really creepy here in the story in her own words absolutely and then after that we are going to take a break and we will see you at the history in just a second. Well I WANNA welcome. Amanda Davi to ghostly you've never been on ghostly before right and I've known you for about like what seven years now I want to say that sounds about right. Yeah Dick Seven years and during this whole time. I had no idea that you had the creepiest story that I've ever heard in my entire life. How is this even possible? I I don't know I guess you don't listen to me when I talk. I saw okay.
"paralysis" Discussed on The United States of Anxiety
"So much. Like the debate among Democrats today back then wasn't real disagreement over what they wanted to achieve. It was a question of how to get there. Most of the party believed they could bend existing institutions toward justice and avoid a horrific ruptured to the country. The radicals argued the only way forward was to accept that Russia. So how did the radical Republicans win win the day out of they make it a mainstream idea at least within the party? It's the civil war you know if you were an abolitionist. You've been thinking about the injustice of slavery for a long time. You've been thinking about family separations. You'd been imagining corporal punishment. But now suddenly everybody's doing that right. And and and families across the north are experiencing the loss of loved ones and The frustration of The stagnation of the northern war effort the radicals really from the beginning of the war. They claim well. The worst thing that can happen for us as a quick victory and everybody goes home. What serves the interests in normal. The return to normal sees not good for the Anti Slavery Movement as I'm talking to Leanna I'm of course not thinking. Hey let's have a war the only people who I've heard truly hold that fantasy today. Our leaders of paramilitary white supremacist groups and as grave as the stakes may be in this election. It's obviously not slavery but I do take a lesson from the radicals clarity that the south was already well past the point of compromise and there comes a point when normalcy just cannot be the goal and after the war things dead radically change. It was a period of truly multiracial. Democracy I talked about this back episode. One this remarkable if brief period and political history when black people streamed into the Republican Party most notably Frederick Douglass himself and they held positions of all kinds county commissioners school boards. More black people served in Congress in the decade after civil war then did all the following one hundred years. Which of course begs the question. Why didn't it last well? You know the Republicans. Imagine that can build a north-south coalition a black white coalition of black and white man working together in the Republican Party that proves a lot harder than people imagine. I mean nobody thought it would be easy but nobody also anticipated the kind of entrenched resistance. That presents itself in the K. k. k. and nice the White Camelia and other organizations that sort of speak for white supremacy in the south. How were they surprised when the slave accuracy said no no no we will? We will meet this with violence to make sure it doesn't exist. How that have surprised them. Well I guess. Part of the surprise is that they don't come up with legal mechanisms to contain the threat. They think that they do but what they find practices that the Supreme Court is not in sympathy with the expansion of federal power and that when the Supreme Court chip away at the Authority of laws to create law and order in the south. There's no longer the political will in Congress Which means that. They can't go back and correct their mistakes. There's a lot of reasons for that and we're going to keep pulling the threat on the political dynamics. Reconstruction is this season continues. But for now the point is when crisis faded normalcy did in fact return northerner Scott Tired of fighting the southern racists. You know they. They don't care enough about the allocation of white people to the status of equals to continue to struggle for it against the kinds of resistance that presents itself white supremacy cared enough to continue struggling. Sure did it makes me think about something. Another voter said to me in Iowa. Before the caucuses he said sure he shares other Democrats anxiety about defeating Donald. Trump is reeling. Zaidi comes when he thinks what then what happens. After victory trump's movement will not just disappear with his presidency. Didn't come from nowhere. So who's ready to fight for a multi-racial society for the long term? WanNa keep hearing from you. What are you anxious about that? You never expected to be a concern in two thousand twenty. It can be a big political issue. But maybe it's something super personal and specific to you just record voice memo and send it to me at anxiety at WNYC dot org include your name in case we use it in an upcoming episode.

"Did you I. I. Guy Are you doing. How are you doing? I feel like a whole lot has happened since I saw you last. Yes a whole lot of happened. I met DJ in Iowa before the impeachment acquittal before voters in New Hampshire gave Bernie Sanders a win and before the great re canvassing controversy of the Iowa caucuses though Dietrich thinks it's less of a controversy than a fit thrown by those of us in the political process. It's about the people it's not about the press in their ability to commentate on result. But did you. We have to fill the air to and that's that's show show us if y'all could have been talking about the grammys or something. I don't know I called because I needed to take a quick break from history and try to make sense of where things stand with this election right now. A couple of weeks into this Democratic primary. I imagine a lot of. Y'All feel like I do which is just really uncertain about what's going to happen and overwhelmed by what feels like an enormously consequential choice. I've been asking you in person and on the phone about the anxiety you'll take into the voting booth with you and your responses have been intense. I never thought I would witness a time when children were locked in cages and half the country defended the practice because they're so afraid of immigrants. I guess I'm going with you. Know the uncomfortable realization. That White America doesn't want a multicultural society. Some things that I've never thought would happen again in my lifetime. I'm afraid to go to synagogue. I am very careful now when I go I look around so scary so we talked to because I figure she's watching this election from a unique vantage which may be helpful. She's a thirty three year old black woman so young for national politics who has an impressive political resume in an overwhelmingly white state. She started in two thousand twelve. When she led Barack Obama's outreach to black voters in Ireland come back one more time to ask for your vote. He was excited and she got hooked. Later CI ran a historic campaign of our own two thousand eighteen. She became the first black person in Iowa to win. A major party's statewide primary. She was running for Secretary of state which foresees elections and that pain got a lot of its county. Hamil Harris even showed up on the stump for DJ digital are we gonNa let de drew was not elected the Republican incumbent held on but then Kamala Harris tap dj to become her statewide political director in Iowa. Which is a very big deal job in any campaign but certainly given the massive weight of history that hung over this particular campaign. One of the things that I used to tell our folks was that no matter what identity they connect with working for black woman. You represent to demographics that are often excluded That are often disenfranchise. Women and black people the franchise voting. This is Dietrich Passion. More people from more walks of life voting more often the idea that we have over two million people in our state that are eligible to vote and we see less than half of them registered to vote and less than that participating in these elections. It's a problem and we can do better than that. And it's this focus on voting just the act of voting setting aside the candidates. That's what made me want to check in with DJ now. Because when I met her I also met all these people in Iowa who are honestly just not super psyched to be the first voters to have to make a choice in this Democratic primary. I heard a lot of indecision mostly tied to the fact that people felt how I do. Now which is deeply uncertain and anxious about the future and like they just had the weight of history on their shoulders. So I have a friend. Who's a teacher and she calls me and says who do I go and vote for? This is a loaded question. I'm like what are you doing just like well. We're in the Teachers Lounge. And there's ten of us and we're trying to figure out WHO WE'RE GONNA go and support and the number one thing that was on their mind was who can't be Donald Trump right and they hated me because I didn't tell them who to vote for but they loved me because I encourage them to vote their values and later got a text message and she said you're right. We talked about it. We have to vote for the person that we believe in unburdened by this man who wants to occupy space in our mind because of the end of the day when we allow him to infiltrate are thinking. We're playing his game. I think all of those people ended up going to caucus which was amazing but they needed somebody to tell them that it was okay for them to go with their gut. Well that may have been too hard for some islands. Let me just tick through. Some of the turnout. Numbers from recent elections and two thousand eight for Obama's first term two hundred and forty thousand Iowans Caucus but in the last presidential election. Two Thousand Sixteen. That number dropped to just about one hundred and seventy thousand which freaked out. Democrats at the time. It felt like an ominous sign then. The twenty eighteen midterms sparked new excitement. There was a huge turnout in many places including Iowa and that led Democrats to expect Obama level participation this year. Well that didn't materialize Iowa. Turnout was just about the same as it was in two thousand sixteen and you know I do wonder if people just paralyzed by the gravity of it. All I started seeing you know regular everyday folks who don't typically spend time navigating. The political sphere really turned off by it. So you saw it coming you. You could see the turn out might be lower this year. Yeah I did feel that especially within the last three weeks and you could just hear in every event that I went to people were asking that question. Who should I support? Who should I support more than I ever heard? People ask that question and one thing. You can't make a wrong choice when you vote your values to evoke are now whether or not that person wins. That's another thing but the nature of voting is almost like shooting a free. Throw you make some. You missed some but as long as you're on the court as long as you're participating our democracy is working. She says all of us who are still waiting to vote. We should go through a similar process. Forget about Donald Trump. Who Do I want to be president and fine but listen if trump's presidency terrifies you then the way this election year kicked off total acquittal. How he doesn't com your anxieties the Democrats. They can't count some simple votes and yet they WANNA TAKE. Oh via healthcare system. Think of it. But you know I got fixated on at least one response from you all about your anxieties this election. This is lucid from Westchester New York. It got me thinking about history and our mission in this season of the show and I never thought that in twenty twenty we would have to worry about is sitting. Us President insinuating civil war on twitter civil war for so many people and on so many of the challenges. We face collectively. We are past the point of compromise. That's the source of what's really the central debate. Among Democratic voters is the best antidote trump. A return to comedy in unity in our national politics are do you embrace the end of compromise and focus instead on the fight for power and when I look back at the moment when politics did in fact collapsed into outright warfare. I found a really similar political debate. Among reformers there were those who held the kind of certainty we hear on the insurgent left of the Democratic Party today. The only way we achieve these goals is through a political revolution. And those who felt a great deal more cautious about pushing the country. Too Far too fast. I think we need someone to head up this ticket that actually brings people with her instead of shutting them out and in some ways both of these perspectives turned out to be right at least in part up next what we can learn from the radical politics of the eighteen fifties. I came across a new book just out in its written by historian. Name Leanna Keefe. I'm a teacher at collegiate school in New York City and the author of when it was grand the radical Republican history of the civil war and one of the neat things about this book is it was partly a teaching project that was a perennial assignment for Tenth Graders Manatees. Tenth Grade. Us history. They had to write papers about the civil war and reconstruction. The book tells the kind of Edgy Story. Which I at least don't remember learning high school. I wasn't the most studious tenth graders. So maybe I missed it but still I like the idea of high school historians if I try to lead them too much into saying look at these Republicans. Aren't they cool? You know they they might not buy it right but but since they have a chance to see for themselves I think they learned it that way learning by doing so. Who were these cool? Radical Republicans. Well first off not Mitch McConnell. It's become kind of a thing. Among particularly far right. Republicans to lay claim to the party's civil war history to latch onto the idea that the GOP was the party of freedom. Trump seems to love invoking Abraham Lincoln a lot of people. Forget Abe Lincoln. I wish you were here. I give him one hell of an introduction but the radicalism Leeann is talking about is a little different from both trump and Lincoln. Maybe the best place to begin explaining it is story you might have heard in high school. It's about Massachusetts senator. Charles Sumner Southerners really the most famous Republican in America the most famous.
"paralysis" Discussed on Short Wave
"To shortwave from NPR. Maddie's Here with shortwave reporter. Emily in today another listener. Question question episode. Yes you for your questions. We genuinely love trying to answer them today. We're hearing from Josh Smith from Orange California all right Mattie so josh sent. Is this fascinating. Note about these strange episodes. He'd have at nights starting when he was five years old where he'd wake up but body would remain frozen. I don't like that it gets worse. So these episodes really escalated when he was a teenager when his home life got really stressful. There's this one night. When he was about sixteen? He woke up in the pitch black. I couldn't move my head move my arms legs and I could sense. There was a presence in the room. uh-huh and I you know started freaking out. Because I couldn't move I couldn't speak couldn't move at all not at all but his eyes were open and after after a minute or two that presence he fell in the room started to float towards him it was humanoid and it was Pale light no pigment in the skin no eyebrows you know no facial hair no nothing but the eyes I remember various whatever this thing was is the is were the deepest of the darkness and he can move but he he actually felt this huge pressure on his chest and and Josh thought this has to be a demon figure came basically right up to his face it stayed there for maybe fifteen twenty seconds and then you know growing up in an evangelical home you know I was I was told just say the name of Jesus so I started saying the name of Jesus over and over and over saying in his head and then it went away and I woke up okay kwong what yeah really right biggest question mark what what's going on right Josh was likely in the grip of what's known asleep process I've heard about like a lot of people with sleep paralysis. Josh was never formally diagnosed. But he had all the signs total immobility upon waking up at night that feeling of terror and occasionally hallucinations. Seeing things or hearing hearing things are sensing things that weren't there and Josh went through this over and over and over again as a teenager but his parents weren't exactly clued in on what to do. If you came to them with a nightmare they would lock their door until you go back to bed. You know and the real reason Josh wrote to us because he's a dad now and he's worried about his own son having sleep paralysis so he wants to better understand this condition. I want to be able to be there for Mike it and say. Hey this is what's going on. Everything's GonNa be okay. He sounds like a good dad. I think so. Yeah so today in the show we talk about how Oh sleep. Paralysis holds the body hostage. And how to help yourself or the person in your life who. Maybe fending off these hallucinations. These monsters in their sleep.

"Our brains have a natural mechanism to protect us so our muscles don't move so oh some people live very violent like acting out and sleepwalking disorders as a whole other type of sleep disorder but it's their muscles. Don't get their their dreams so it's like when you see a dog dreaming about running warning that exactly that video the job probably had some sort of being able to beaver disorder. It's not bad but sleep. Paralysis is essentially what happens is is when you're in that seriously you're coming out of ram sleep but your muscles have turned back on. It's very it's common. It's common but it often often is a sign that you're having you had some sort of sleep deprivation. I know someone who one hundred. I know i know a number of people who've had ah someone who will go nameless right now was in law school at the time who had it because he was sleep deprived and i just woke up the that and if there was terrible get some sleep dress my husband but yeah it was bad but it was just because junior and it can happen and that's what you have to treat i or just make picture your sleep. Quality is good getting enough sleep on a regular basis. If you continue to have it though despite getting enough sleep you definitely want to get an evaluated because it can be a sign of other sleep disorders or other medication 'cause it. You want to get it evaluated but the first thing is sleep deprivation. Yeah i was very tired. I really overdid it the weekend with with work and then went to a locally family thing that happened in the night after yeah but i knew it was happening because i thought that my front door was being opened. I thought i could hear the machinations nations and so i am going to shout out dough coming here and i would oh okay. This is sleep paralysis. There was some. I'm kind of you. Would you at least knew what it was when people have it for the first time it's terrifying well. Some people report that they feel like something's getting close to them or something sits on the chair. There is a really i forgot that morning having to pay to yeah and it's like a monster sitting on just demon daemon exactly yeah it's fascinating but really there is no demon is the fact that your brain in your ability or out of sync think see i like. I like offering comfort because it happens. It can be really scary. Yeah and there are like i said you know if you're someone who's having not just sleepwalking but you're fighting and hurting yourself or someone else and it's much more of a violinist. Thank you need to get that evaluated for sure. I think it's <hes> i was gonna say it's just it's so comforting to know that this affects a lot of people and that it can someone like a very lonely thing yeah but it actually isn't in the other thing i wanted to ask you about. She was positioning yeah i have. What is there an optimum sleep position. You know it's different for different from everybody. It depends like if you ask me orthopedist or car on their polly how their own specific opinions but i i always look at it. It's just you know.
"paralysis" Discussed on Pet Life Radio
"Because if we have a paralysis, and there's no D pain, these dogs definitely need to be seen fairly immediately. Now, if there it's just the kind of wobbly a little bit it look like they're drunk. They're they're a tactic. We call that they could they can walk, but they are clumsy they have depressed CP's conscious proper septic, but they still can't fix then. We're looking at a case probably be handled medically and for those of old fashioned way and still I'm old fashioned Cy still use steroids. But I guess the newer studies come out our saying that some of the better non-steroidal that are safe for pets. I don't ever go to cabinet and start pulling out ibuprofen or stuff like that. You gotta talk your veterinarian, but some of the work Justice, effectively, of course, maybe a little safer on the GI tract, and and the high goes steroids. But there are there's medical therapy. The key to medical therapy. In addition to the royals or streudel, whatever your veterinary chooses to use strict strict strict, we call cage rest, that's so hard for people to do. But. Literally put them in a small space, very small space, pick them up to go outside pick them up to this no unnecessary movement. It's like a doctor saying to the patient on the human side. I said here's a choice. You can either jump into bed and don't move for two weeks or my surgery table. It's very similar. So we got to be very, very careful. And when the doctor says cage rest, they pretty much mean cage rest. It's the difference between having a pet that could ever walk again or pet that need surgery versus a pet. That's gonna do just okay. If you follow the instructions so a lot to handle, but if you have animals, if you are breeds, if you have your Frenchies do know that is a possibility does happen. It happens fairly often. Unfortunately, many of them can respond to medical therapy, but many of them like my patients the other night actually had to go straight into surgery. So it does happen dachshunds keep them lane. There's one thing I should add overweight. Dogs long back. Dodger overweight are at much greater predisposition to distance and disrup-. Sure. So when you have those dogs that we know around the list of dogs that seemed to have this problem keep them on the lean side that's good for their own. That's I mean better anyway. But it's certainly when it comes to the backs it's for their own health and wellbeing anyway to everybody out there have a wonderful safe fun. New Year's and welcome graduate here for our last show two thousand eighteen will be here. Next sunday. Our first date two thousand nineteen happy new year..

"The condition can be triggered by sleep deprivation, psychological distress or like having abnormal sleep cycles. Maybe you're getting up earlier for some reason or sleeping and later. But the underlying mechanism is believed to involve the dysfunction of your rents a theory as to why it happens is that the neural functions that regulates sleep are out of balance in such a way that causes different sleep states to kind of overlap neurons capable of sending the signals that would allow you for complete. Arousal from your sleep state have difficulty in overcoming the signal sent by the other cells that keep the brain in the sleep state, essentially, some neurons in your brain are saying you're awake while some are saying, no baby you're still asleep. Scientists think that sleep paralysis might be a great explanation for some peoples reports of ghosts and demons and even alien abductions. The experience has been interpreted as paranormal in several cultures a study in Hong Kong, for example, thirty seven percent of students reported at least one instance of air refer to as the ghost oppression in Thailand the term for sleep paralysis fee them. I think that's how you say it. I don't know. I know that like they have a different dialect literally cannot speak Thai, but it translates to ghost covered. So they actually call sleep arouses in Thailand ghost covered in Newfoundland Canada. It is known as a visit from the old hag. I hope that's not misogynist, and there's a famous painting by Henri few silly. And it's called the nightmare. It's actually in Detroit. Saw it recently. It's a picture of this like demon sitting on this woman lying in bed. You study it in like all art history classes, but again, this was probably a visual depiction and a painting of sleep paralysis. It's common amongst people. There's almost a fifty percent chance. This is going to.
