"He's outraged look man. You can't walk among your people like you gotta look yourself in the mirror. Justin and say why is it that everywhere you stop. You're surrounded by people that hate you because he doesn't get it it's his vanity project is egos too big for his head i mean. How many times is sophie. Gregoire trudeau on camera. Telling them to rein in his ego. You're not god. I mean hot. mike's numerous times. Not once or twice numerous times. I mean the man's ego is just bigger than what he wants to implement. And that's the biggest problem. I may and if you're a supporter of liberal of the liberal party in of justin trudeau it's because you're dismissing the facts. You're dismissing agah. Khan you're dismissing as dismissing The we charity or dismissing you know all the essence he laflin in the face. Black face your dismissing. You know the fact that he calls himself a feminist but then literally promo. He literally disenfranchises his best. James wilson Jodie wilson rebels right. And then now you have Selena cesar chavez. Who is you know another disgruntled liberal. And he who is promoting unfortunately a conservative party member. And that's she's did that openly the other day online and that's like come on like do you not see what's happening under the liberal party like they don't even adopt this and i have this argument with my father. Who by the way was a politician and he actually ran for the liberals in medicine hat alberta after two terms as mayor. There which you know. I'm always scared. Actually admit that allowed. The reality was as i respect. His integrity actually run for an face. Whatever values it is he has. That's probably where i got this from. We might be on opposite spectrum. Sometimes but you know that's a big influence in my life right so somebody who told me to stand up for my community. Stand up for people around me Stand up for the values that my family actually entertains and this is what my values are. So i got that from him. You know and you know we might not sport same party. But even now we still get into these little squabbles. Back and forth. Were we start talking about politics. And his almost always comes down to heart string policies and identity politics and we don't play that game. We don't do that. Canadian is a canadian is a canadian. Your religion is you're right your freedom of speech is you're right like we don't believe in hate by any means but what try and implement on hate speech and censorship. Laws is hate. It's actually it's you're you're not going against hate speech. You're going against people who oppose your narrative on every aspect. That's what you're going that censorship. that's not hate speech. So i got a joke for you ever already. Justin trudeau was a feminist. Also that's the joke. Come on you know the the. It's just so ridiculous that he like the call. The there's like a national well. It's the pbc wins then. There isn't but there's almost like a cognitive dissonance going on great term. I use it at all my speeches. There's something like a hypnotic effect. That's happening right now. You know that the where the leakages into the ppc. So the leakage comes out the holistic therapy that. I don't want to get a vaccine. I'm you know that's my whole life is about not doing those types of things right and they leak into the ppc. Hawaii this platform is pretty good. I didn't. I didn't realize until i found a party that was not forcing me to take a medical intervention and then i read their platform and listened to their leader.

Sometimes i'll see something online or see something that was said or you know an action that's been omitted and all kind of corrected as much as i can stay on message or by that but we are very open like i mean. We're all friends within the party. There's no controversies going on. And max is the leader of that lake. I mean we have events all the time we had one. recently. I mean my loves my wife. He spends all his time with my dog. And my kids He's a nice man he's very genuine. He's down to earth. He's not fancy by any means he's definitely the most in shape leader of all of them like. Oh my god. Nobody else runs marathons You know i. All i can say is that the people in boasts really don't understand. I think i think they they forgot how much did for them in that riding when he wasn't elected in two thousand nine thousand nine hundred and they saw that his rival took over and did nothing. Absolutely nothing didn't talk to anybody. In speak-out anyone who basically one of the leaders of dairy cartel didn't do nothing. So max now is now actually that writing. He's very tight within that writing. We think he's probably gonna take it We'd love to see max get elected but the party's more than just max and that's one thing that we really need to kind of put out there. There's so many people who think that were kind of a one trick. Pony maybe and that match would be that perennial you know pony that were riding on his back. But it's not the case. Like i mean you were where to look across the country. We have some candidates like mark freezing. Are you familiar with mark later on twitter. Yeah mark freezes amazing. He sneaks out on behalf. Everyone he's at all these events very intelligent man You know you. Look at laurel in tyler thompson. Who's not a candidate this time around. But she she's still promoting the party with her values. I wanna be in alberta You know very religious background centric. But she's got a huge following Then you look at when you know my candidates self we're everything..

We need to have our industrial complex being brought to canada. We need to create jobs. We need to have a stable reform. We need to have a stable economy industrial spectrum that allows canadians to build on that. I want to give an example of how unions can affect policy and how it it's underhandedly advantageous to them. So many union wages are index to minimum wage right yep so index minimum wage so there are multiple of minimum wage. So then you hear about unions advocating to raise the minimum wage. Okay so they advocate for this right but really. They don't care about the personnel working at mcdonald's too. Got a scam. you know. we'll do we're gonna tell we're going to start putting out ads to Increase them in which because the poor workers at mcdonalds and all that they're not making enough money but that's how will disguise are forty percent. Pay hike will you basically just described the entire andy people at for literally what it is. It's it's how to disguise what we wind. We're going to tax the rich.

You know the spoiled vote in a sense where they're like. I just wanna see what he'll do. So i'm gonna mark trump. I mean but in the end it turned out. His policies were amazing benefited. The country benefited their economic prosperity. People like him or hate him because he's actually not that likable. Actually you know. I i. I love his policies. i love. they've done.

That case has evidence not been reviewed enough. And that's what happens on in the. Hey great they have to present the evidence in order to get it formalized.

The federal election happening right now just like in canada. What are the chances for the people's party and this is going to be able to pull out of this. Is this the tough question because If you look at polling numbers. We're everywhere i mean In some polls which. We don't obviously believe in. I mean where as low as four or five percent now which is still two three times higher than what we were prior to in these ones but in some areas we're looking at twelve thirteen.

Yeah was anybody asked that question like Can't government a candidate put out a little quiet warning that you you shouldn't wear the blue masks because they have particulate matter. Does anybody know that no. You shouldn't wear those blue masks. Why all day long. Because they have these little particles on them or something like that that that should be being screamed from the rooftops. You know the only thing is that. I believe that masks people sick. I think like how many times people bowl shoot. I forgot my master. My kiddo here's one of the seat of the car and head hundred percent put this on. You know the they're not studying. They're not they're not going out into the real world now and studying people. They're looking at statistics of cova. Massaging them and saying well. No did the masks. And now we're not we're okay now or whatever no if you actually grab the mask. Some was wearing on their face and took it off and swabbed it. You'd find all manner of nastiness on that thing. Well listen this. We'll go even further here. So occupational mask fit testers. This is their job. They're the experts in masking. Okay so not a physician there. They're not an occupational expert in that they're not just get told. This is the maske wear under these criteria this semester. These criteria an occupational mass fitter is the only one that is certified to say what is actually approved for that type of environment and not one of them supports this nonsense.

There are new party to And this is where canada's coming from so you're talking about divide while they're dividing these parties internally to literally separate them into what we're actually wanting now and you're seeing it across anna and it's good when everybody says oh well you know it's conservative liberal conservative liberal back and forth back and forth back and forth. What's getting accomplished. nothing route doing anything. We just keep making it worse. More parties means more sense of democracy. More debate more platforms more ideas for tobacco can also lead to like Like If you look at some of the countries like belgium for example or the netherlands these countries have so many political parties that they can form a government. That's another problem but You know but that that that the people's party to me is what i see is a grassroots movements. It's a movement rather than a political body. And what's happening is the idea of the left and right. That is very anachronistic. You know like this. You have the left and you know you. That means if you're on the left your you believe in gay rights abortion euthanasia unionization and more social programs. And if you're on the right you're a racist you. Are you believe in lower taxes. You're pro-life you're this like there's no like this spectral line that we have is very silly actually to describe things and what i see in the people's party is almost like a okay. Let's throw that out and let's do some sensible stuff with the primary focus being individual privacy for most people. And i mean this is where this is where it all kind of started from. It stemmed from this and it's only building more right so people are understanding a lot more where we're coming from where we're trying to get to And privacy matters is one of the biggest factors right now like you said..

Yeah he's pushing people against each other. He's citing lies and omissions is using that to rile up his narrative to push you know his divided and conquer type programs that he wants. I mean you look at doctors and nurses. They're standing up for themselves. I mean this isn't a fallacy.

First of all these people have been battling covert eighteen eighteen months without a vaccine. It didn't like the idea that this is a sensible solution or whatever it's not it makes no sense at all but there's not a world leader. I mean you look around seem as the greatest leader in the world right now. Not kidding you. I i would say that he is too. There's nobody that compares to what maxine bruhns doing in canada. Nobody you know so. I'm not gonna like name one. Listen i i think. The polish government's doing a great job. Okay so you want to go viktor. Orban or In hungary i mean you know what a guy has been given a really bad rap by the globalist crowd. I mean if you if you ever watch if you don't you've heard a lot abo- viktor orban. He's such a horrible guy and all that watching interview with victory urban. You're gonna change your mind after ten minutes ago is amazing amazing. And i'm trying to remember the guy's name in poland My father-in-law's polish I can't remember his name is gonna those long polish but anyway Again all they're saying all those countries are saying is that Hungary exists to protect and promote the hungarian people. The hungarian language and hungarian culture. That's why we exist as a government. That's our only reason to exist and we don't exist to to help out other countries to help the european union reading we exist to protect the poll The hungry people their language and their culture. That's our reason arrays on through their ego. It's raison-d'etre okay so otherwise we don't do anything else. this idea. That candidates should not be negotiating with hungary with a canada. I policy like why not. That's how quebec negotiates everything that's right. I mean you look at floss. While ago. in the way that he's imposed his you know his will on the people there. It has nothing to do with what the desire for all quebec is his desire. You know and that's not supported by the majority of quebeckers and it will be reflective in the next election. You know you look at what's happening here. In ontario doug ford came with a majority and everybody thought he was going to be this conservative voice. I was going to help clean up ontario.

They're greatly contributing but they would also say that the economic return for where they're coming at as as their education class. I mean if you're a doctor and pakistan and then now you're coming to canada you're driving a cab and we see that we don't want to you. Want wanna see that. These economic investors and these educated professionals from other countries who went through the same model by the way in pakistan and india. They go through the same model. Canada so really.

So i want electrical contracting company here and in from two thousand and five to. I think the thirteen participated in ontario government program called skills skills for change and what. This is a wonderful program. what they did was they. They connected immigrants who were skilled tradesmen different kinds with contractors. Who needed skilled tradesmen. Okay and so. What happened was about fifteen Electrician's i hired them. They did not have a license and they were on an accelerated program to get their license so within a year a year and a half based on our approval as a contractor they were able to receive their three zero nine eight which is intellectual electric electricity license. Okay and so those programs were very well done. And so it allow those people to go from driving a new or anything wrong with driving uber. I'm not. I'm not But that's not an electrician wants to do correct right like a guide electrician from colombia or pakistan. Doesn't wanna come to candidate to drive in uber. That's not the canadian dream.

What i'm saying is that people are not visibly seeing death and destruction in front of their eyes. So if you had a real pandemic like the spanish flu people would self isolate because they were scared but in this pandemic they self isolated because politicians are forcing them but also because they've created hysteria around it.

And we said look what we need is less regulation here and if you allow people who sell lightbulbs to then recollect old lightbulbs which don't allow right now. If you allow for that you will see a boom in lamp recycling because we know where the lamps are that the government doesn't know with lamps are and so. Our recycling rates have gone astronomically through the roof ever since they changed the regulations. That and now. I think somewhere around sixty or seventy percent of lamps and that waste diversion is a huge part of that and every step along the way we pay taxes. You understand what i mean. We didn't take any revenue from the government. We pay taxes to the government. That's what that's what entrepreneurship is right. It's like can we do this. I buy with with entities that are revenue generating and the government is completely forgotten about that. That problems can be solved by entrepreneurs.

Sent a letter formally withdrawing his ruling fetus party from the european people's party which job as you said. Is this big the biggest group in the european parliament. It's it's a centre-right grouping but it's actually. I'm quite diverse internally. It has some members that lena bit more liberal at how members which are quite conservative and even though officials eat this move came after change to the groups Internal rules really. It's a culmination of years. And years of of debate and internal tension and ultimately i think some of the group's biggest members and in particular the german at christian democratic union That that's the party of chancellor. Angela merkel at perhaps have started feeling that does is more of a liability ford them and so or bond decided you to quit and look elsewhere and just explain to us how we have got to this point where fidesz is in such a dire situation with the european parliament and that it that oh viktor.

And what happened this week. Is that the twelve members of the european parliament. Left this centre-right grouping within the parliament and are now sitting in parliament but simply as independent members without formal political affiliation and the big question now is what will come next so whoa joined one of the more conservative right-leaning groups one option is the european conservatives and reformists group where the polish a ruling lon justice party is a member Another option is the identity and democracy group where alternative for germany and marine le.

Political Demonization is Solvable (again)
"A few years ago identified what you felt to be very deep problem in your country. can you describe what it is and how did you I recognize it? So actually goes back to well by data I nearly. Ninety, two there was a vote on Switzerland joining or not joining European commercial area or economic European. Economic. The and the Swiss refused that, and that was actually the starting point of an. Incredible career of a party called the Swiss People's Party. Here which is which happened to turn from really Conservative Party into a rather writing populist parties well and Chris blowhole. He's the leader, the the well-known like personality of this party. There's a saying that he get has tailor made suits, but which actually don't really faith on the shoulder. So he would pretend to be one of you know the people but actually a billionaire, he's super-rich one of the richest people in Switzerland. He runs this party anti finances this party mostly, and so that was basically the start of this career of the party. So the problem you identified is the problem. Of Swiss, populism you identified a particular event and it was the referendum on mass migration. Can you explain would what's the significance of referendums in Switzerland and why this one in particular effective the NFL pay came up with a will be called an popular initiative, which is a therapy democratic proposal to the Swiss people that we voted on, and that means that you a needs to collect one hundred, thousand signatures at on a specific hem nego text, which thin if it is accepted is being introduced into our Constitution. So such as some law, you know it's changing. Our Constitution. So the writing populist as well as other parties misused the tool today as a marketing tool for issues they come up with this at just right before elections. So they can compaign on a specific issue, but originally disrupt was given to minorities which would never be represented in parliament and through this initiative, they could introduce law and come up with issues which matter to them, and so that particular event was in February two, thousand fourteen voted on the so-called mass immigration initiative already from the name, you can see that it comes up, it brings up a certain framing and yes, pay wanted to. Limit the number of people coming to Switzerland in the free movement of people agreements that we have with the European Union Switzerland is not member of the your opinion, but we have but a treatise and visit they're just too many people come to Switzerland every year and they one. Yeah. By really close marching of fifty point three percent it was only twenty thousand votes which made a difference, and so you said to yourself, how do we stop this and then you went through a process of trying to think how how do we push back against this kind of language get the thing was we didn't actually. Themselves, in the country that we grew up in because we we saw Switzerland as a you know cosmopolitan international country, a open and so on and we nobody expected this to happen. It was like our brexit moment. You know we said, okay, that's not the country that we want to live in. We want to change this. We won't have a brighter future and the brighter vision for what Switzerland's can be, but the populist argument had already infected all the other parties in other words everybody began saying in Switzerland well, actually maybe it's true. Maybe they're too many people here. Maybe we need stronger borders maybe we need greater sovereignty. So how do you? How do you push back against that kind of? This change of social mood. Basically, what will be so is that we want to promote. Switzerland regarding the future we said Switzerland is the land of Opportunity of the twenty first century. We're not the kind of open air museum where nothing should ever change and that's also the country wants to live in in two thousand fifty. We've actually looking forward to the two thousand fifteen so in so you began reframing. The conversation but actually use you said to me earlier you you thought I about creating a political party and then you decided that wasn't the way to go. Right. So for us I mean, of course, we're super disappointed about all the other party if it just overtook the narration of the hoppy of there are too many people in our trains too many people renting apartments here I thought okay, we have to. Make a new party because we don't cannot identify with any other. We don't have a political home. But then we realized that the Indus was political system. It doesn't make sense to create a new party, but instead, we decided to create an over partisan movement. Actually goes against this tendency of polarization, but we wanted to unite the progressive liberal minds in this country, and also we wanted to link US somehow back to the tradition of eighteen, forty eight, which is the foundation of the liberal state of Switzerland, and we we introduced ourselves with our manifesto as children of eighteen, forty eight. So trying to link these liberal ideas back to the past. So they're part of Swiss history and they don't seem like some kind of foreign import no absolutely and even more it was a vedic patriotic but emancipated. Patriotic Understanding of where we come from the founding fathers of our country for deliverables in eighteen, forty eight, and we totally identified with their mindset of what it means to be a modern Switzerland.

"The day. Was June twenty-fourth Nineteen thirty two? The Siamese political party rots Adine, or the People's Party overthrew the government of King Rama, the seventh, ending seven Hundred Years of absolute monarchy under the kings of Yom. The bloodless coup resulted in the introduction of democracy, the first constitution of Thailand. Since seventeen, eighty, two the kingdom. Or Modern Day Thailand have been ruled by the Chakri Dynasty beginning with Rama, the I who founded the capital city Bangkok. Throughout the nineteenth century, much of Southeast Asia was colonized by the British. French and Dutch crm was never subjected to colonial rule. But Rama the fifth who reigned from eighteen, sixty, eight to nineteen, ten, set out to modernize the kingdom. He introduced social and governmental reforms that were based on western models. The old ruling families rejected his reforms, but from the mid eighteen eighty s to the early nineteen hundreds. Rama, the fifth overhauled the administration established military conscription, abolished slavery and made other major changes in the country. The king was committed to modernisation. He was also committed to maintaining Thai traditions and independence. He instituted all these reforms under the guise that they would save from the threat of Western colonialism. Civilized to colonial powers than it would supposedly avoid Western invasion. Rama the Fifth Son and successor Rama the sixth also worked to modernize the M and welcomed the adoption of some European ideals. His reforms upset members of the aristocracy and nobility as well as groups of progressives and radicals. In nineteen twelve, a group of military officers conspired to overthrow the king, but the plot failed. There is debate over the main causes of the nineteen thirty two revolution, but the rise of western educated commoner elites who become dissatisfied with politics in CSM played a significant role in the event. Rama the seventh ascended the throne in nineteen, twenty, five, He created the Supreme Council of state made up of senior princes who had served in previous administrations. They quickly let go of commerce who had been appointed in the civil service and military. During Rama the seventh rule, returning Western educated students grew disillusioned with the status quo. In Nineteen, twenty, seven, a small group of military and civilian students gathered in periods with the. Founding Party to bring change to see 'em. This group of seven people call themselves the promoters and they decided to stage a coup to end absolute monarchy in the country. To achieve this goal, they formed the canal rot. Sedan or People's Party. The promoters worked on gathering supporters. Meanwhile seamless facing economic problems, the Great Depression made it to the country by nineteen thirty. The value of rice see'ums major export fell drastically land values also fell, so the government had to make a bunch of budget cuts.

Taiwan mayor loses recall vote in blow for pro-China opposition
"Now a high profile math from Taiwan's main opposition party lost a recall vote over the weekend. So what do we need to know about it well? Ron Is the director of Oxford University's China Center joins US on the line. Now run a good off name. Thanks for being with us. Tell us a bit about this mare and tell us what this these moves over the weekend main. Will this is really a very major event. In Taiwan Politics Hungary the man who was recalled and has now lost his job as mayor of Kaohsiung. The second biggest city in Taiwan in the south was actually very popular figure he was actually the candidate for the opposition Nationalist Women Dang party. In last year's sorry. The earlier this year s presidential election, which was won by. The incumbent president tying one, and this means that he's essentially had a massive full from grace, a the reason essentially that he was put out for recall was that some of his political opponents argued that by running for president. He'd been neglecting his job as man, but I think that most people think that wouldn't have happened. Had it not been for the increasing unhappiness at the sense that his party is? Is relatively more friendly to mainland China and right now and certainly within the last few months. That's very voter unfriendly position to take in Taiwan politics well, indeed runner and I wanted to ask you a bit about that wide context, of course, if we go back to the start of the year knees, elections in the problems that the the the the opposition party had because of exactly that sort of. anti-china sentiment. I guess we can. We can call it. That it is all bound up together inextricably, isn't it? Eighty and it's become much more so within the last year or so essentially two things or two or three things have come together at once. One is that China is much a baking mainland China is much more hostile to the current incumbent government presidency, in Taiwan, which is run by the Democratic People's Party, which take Louis would like independence Taiwan, but they know that to put that forward openly as A. Direct plan would probably lead to a very very strong. Maybe military reaction from from China and China much prefers it when the other body equaling Dang is actually in an office. So that was one thing, but the other side was the sign. One who's economic record were was not all that might be was looking as if she was running for a defeat and then Hong Kong happened last year's protests protests in the. The streets against the proposed dishing bill essentially enabled her party to use a very convincing slogan. which was this call next year possibly Taiwan variance. Oh, that and that meant that? Essentially she had one office by placing herself up as a candidate who would not in any way bow to the demands of the mainland, which of course is now seen as an authoritarian and very aggressive state in the minds of many Taiwanese voters. Rona is something to learn I. Mean I think that point especially about the comparisons with Hongkong timings there of friction that we we've seen. Is it actually helpful to try and better understand what potentially the next steps could be in Taiwan with liquor, opposition, politics, or the balance of relationship with Beijing, is that genes truck to look to Hong Kong? Does that sort of muddy the waters yet further? It's it is instructive. Look at Hong Kong as long as understands the differences, and the most crucial one is the whether one likes it or not. Hong Kong is now a part of China's sovereign rule. It was handed back by us by the British in one, thousand, nine, hundred seven, and it is now part of People Republic of China will. Governance is overseen by treaty signed between the two countries way back in nineteen eighty five. Taiwan is different. It has never been reunified with the mainland since the. Civil War in China was one in Nineteen forty-nine by chairman. Mao Mounts Dome. But of course that separation has become more and more of a sore. That needs to be dealt with in the minds of the mainland Chinese. The differences that very much, unlike Hong, Kong Taiwan does have a not. Very strong, but certainly real promise of a certain amount of assistance Ritz on defense from the United States on the something called the Taiwan Relations Act passed in Washington in Nineteen, seventy nine, so there is a military backstop that might just might be used limits very unlikely that gives people in Beijing Portsmouth old in a way. That's not true for obvious reasons for Hong, Kong. Run I just wonder and at the risk of asking You impossibly complex question and not giving enough time to answer it. What! What's the next critical juncture to look for? If we look at this balance in Taiwan, is there a specific event is question of looking at what happens at the ballot box are there particular political Moose depend on on individuals, or is it that sort of that always tricky question? You know how the public decide to take particular developments. What do we need to account for in the in the weeks ahead? I think it's important to look out for language both on Taiwan, site analyst side of the People's Republic of China on the side of the People's Republic. You have to look and see if there's any indication that moving away from their standing statement that they would be peaceful reunification with Taiwan, always use that word now. What disappeared from one of the officials statements a few weeks ago, which caused quite a flurry, as you can imagine, but mysterious enough to what peaceful came back in the mouth of Prime Minister Meka Chang a couple of weeks later, maybe the there was a quarrel over, and it was reinserted, or maybe they just forgot if that changes again on. On the long term, it's not on the peaceful reunification that does make a difference and back anti one. You have to look at how far the wider population which of course is a liberal multi-party democracy where the mainland is not looks at this white, a question of separation. They are aware that Beijing said that their absolute blood red line is the Taiwan must not declare formal independence, but there is also increasing disillusionment in the wider population of Taiwan that the mainland really gets what it means to be a free multi-party democracy in the way that Taiwan is in the meeting of minds, very unfortunately doesn't seem doesn't seem to be very apparent. Right at the moment. Date Arana always get to hear from you that our friend from Oxford University, Rana meter, joining us here on the briefing monocle twenty

I've never been a club head right into a simply enjoy spending time with my family or or watching a good movie.

One hundred thousand people partied with some of the most prominent leaders in entertainers of our time. Courtesy of DJ denies who went on Instagram.

Now when I say one hundred thousand you knew that I wasn't talking about in a club or in a stadium because we're still over or in a state of quarantine in isolation for some who may have been impacted or exposed to the cove in nineteen buyers. So this was a uncharted way of partying. Because everybody party from the comfort of their own home and when I tell you I had the most fun and it was a three day maybe even four day party in it just continued to grow and I remember one day I logged on and it was probably thirteen or fourteen thousand and maybe the day before he hadn't reached that number and I don't even think it was a numbers thing I really believe. Denies was operating out of a being led moment right. Because you could just feel the Bob. He was just jamming nothing. Nothing out of the ordinary. He had his beard little scruffy. Look regular t shirt. Nothing on no branding really. But he had these hat changes which I thought was pretty interesting to add dynamic and flair because as you could imagine like in a club or at an event it's more showy right but we are just really trying to vibe off the music and he wanted to put that feel good out there and he put it out there and I think the return of what he got back was something that he did not even intimidate so shout out to him and another thing I noticed when I logged on he had probably two hundred thousand followers and the day after he reached that hundred thousand mark he went to over a million followers on instagram. And I know it's not all about the followers but it just goes to show people if you put good things out there energy. I'm not a big energy. Were user but if you put good energy out there I believe it comes back to you and it came back to him. A hundred thousand fold truly. It really did right so that was pretty good. I think over time he changed the Algorithm because the Love was dad infectious that is spread globally in just really lifting the hearts and spirits of people. I don't know if anybody has ever had that many live viewers at one time because we kept getting blocked out. I mean if you were on that party you know you were blocked out a couple times too but then some somebody somebody made it happen. Somebody's burke himself may have given the hey less lift this ban to allow an infinite number not infinite but over one hundred thousand over a hundred and fifty thousand people to be on this live at a time so hats off to you denies literally or hats on because you have a strong heck game. Let's get into today's show and talk some gain the pollen count is down. Y'All I'm not an allergy prone person but my husband has allergies. So this is huge. Pollen COUNTS DOWN. Streams and canals are clearing up in ways unseen in decades. And when I say decades I mean decades. I don't know if you've ever been to a ben is before but just the water where the Gondolas run. It was murky when we when we went very very murky. Look you cannot. You could not see through it. And somehow because of less water boat usage though the war has cleared up and you can actually see finish schools of fish and I thought that was huge to even read about right in so just making a dark or gloomy situation highlighting the positive out of it. There are some positive things I want to highlight. Some of those things in the show right rose or less busy states are still doing what they can to control the spread of Kobe. Nineteen but people seem to be leveling off from keeping their hands on the panic button like a week ago it seemed like it was just panicked panic panic frenzy frizzy frenzy right to making more rational decisions however something else has spiked students are now forced to stay home. And that's this conundrum of stay at home activity posted occupy to occupy children the day but I get it I get it but I guess. My question is home school or flop. That's the topic today. Home School or flop in this came about having my own children. Neither one of them. I have three but neither one of them are in kindergarten so my perspective on the home school. Rigors I kind of ebb and flow between never extreme but necessary however cultivated for your children. Not for competitive reasons right. I read an interesting article on the New York Times from the viewpoint of a working. Mom whose husband also works and since the corona virus. They work from home but they have twin boys who are eight and she raised some interesting viewpoints from a working mom's perspective and I'm going to read a little of what she said out of respect of for their amazing teachers. She's talking about her twin boys. I'm making a good faith effort to keep or to get my kids to do the work. That's been sent home but that does not come anywhere close to filling. What would have been a school day? After accomplishing the bare minimum. The agenda is to survive and watch too much TV. I thought that was pretty funny. We'RE EATING COOKIES AND CARBS. Hoping for the best. We are loving one another and trying not to go insane. I don't know if you hear my. That's my six month old screaming in the background. But she's fine now. Her predictions want school closed. There were more school. Closures were announced was that she would see a social media blitz from MOMS with color coded charts with every minute scheduled as well as Yoga and meditation. Inclusivity French lessons here and karate there. Could you imagine trying to teach her child karate because you just know that they still need it at home? How Bill Rocket Ship? The to`real all of these things in mom and Dad. You can attest if you're on social media this is true or if you shot of a friend who's on social media you know that this is very true so the question came to my. Are we doing too much? And I say we having to Tyler's again yet to reach kindergarten however they have daily zoom meetings scheduled with their guides and classmates on top of what I tried to incorporate for daily learning right now granted. I do believe as I said it's necessary to learn and stay connected but is this the time to four court press our children or to give them a break as a world around us seems to be in a frenzy. I want I want. I want you all to chime in but parents. Are we doing too much chime in and let me know? Is this truly a home? School or flat moment is is this the responsibility of the parent security torch for the teachers or do we try to incorporate some of their learning from school and make it our own right? That's what I want to hear back. Give me feedback and however you do that whether it be under the comments in this podcast emailing me directly t Lewis at SEM SPORTS DOT com. I WANNA know your feedback. I want to hear from you. Learning is important. But as a parent of bilingual children I defer to learning with them instead of trying to teach them right. That really works for me. And so here's some some some suggestions just from what we've been doing be creative in the areas that come naturally. We've always made meals together in done artwork together me studying art throughout college. That comes more naturally than me. Doing geometry thank God neither one of our doing geometry right now right And so I have to cook. We have to eat and making meals together as fun usually except the cleanup can be a little too arduous but this me keep their attention for one but also allowing them to learn hands on in spaces that I can navigate. Well so be creative in areas that come natural to you. If you're a mechanic maybe you have your child. If they're old enough in smart enough to just go through the tools that you use to change a tire right. That doesn't come naturally to me. I do know how to do it. But it's not natural so do things that come natural
