Behind Louisiana's Climate Plan To Become Carbon Neutral

"The state setting aggressive climate goals perhaps the most surprising is louisiana. The longtime oil and gas state is now trying to figure out how to become carbon neutral by twenty fifty teagan wetland of member station w. w. n. o. reports like so many in louisiana. Daniel autan knew exactly where to find a solid career oil and gas hard work but it paid for his family's modest home on the edge of the woods outside homa thought it had a job for the rest of my life but five years ago the notoriously boom and bust industry came for him. He's in a completely different field now. Construction sometimes he wonders if he should have done something differently to stay with oil and gas in. You look at things from from the big picture and you realize you know you were probably lucky to have your job as long as you did. Democratic governor john bel edwards seems to have come to the same conclusion about the state's reliance on the oil and gas industry in a major shift. He says the state must find ways to address the cause of the climate change. That's behind increasingly powerful hurricanes floods and rising seas so last fall he launched a climate pask forced to come up with a roadmap to zero out emissions. If anyone can identify innovative and sustainable solutions for future it is louisiana and our kids are counting on us. Louisiana is the fifth largest carbon producing state and petro chemical and oil and gas producer for decades. It is subsidize the industry with tax breaks and incentives but made it hard for wind and solar companies to operate or develop now the climate commission will explore the potential for electric cars mass transit more solar even offshore wind turbines in the gulf of mexico. Just put it this way. It's the first time. Any louisiana governor has put the words climate initiative in taskforce together in one sentence. Nonni carton is a policy expert with the deep south center for environmental justice. So that is a major historic step forward. She hopes that investing in clean energy creates more jobs especially in communities of color and reduces pollution in low income areas. We can actually generate energy ourselves in a way that doesn't have these toxic side effects on these harmful environmental climate

Wow can you believe that. You were digging ditches. A few years ago or man when you you added on this grandma's kitchen pay ten dollars an hour. This must be awesome. Nope just don't buy happiness. And here's the thing ironic gail what by me happiness. If you were telling me. I'll fucking proud. You actually the reason we have this going to be the fucking stink man press the actual money. It's the pride in earning it that you would reflect so ironic that if he would have hugged to me and said wow you barely graduated high school of an ounce of college under your belt reading his so loading around what the be an ambulance driver. Oh my god cleaning carpets and now a million dollars a year. Who would have thunk it. The first parole to make a note. Just don't buy happiness. And i would have been happy if you wanna fuck and said that. Maybe that's what he meant. I'm not gonna lend you happy exactly. I will not good luck in hell where where we have the news. Yeah money didn't by tiger woods happiness atom. Now how long do you think did you ever think in your mind. When is dr drew to speak out on tiger woods and what seems to be sex addiction somewhere around ten women as now by the time you hear this in your ear. Buds it can be more women farther attend. Well the real the real damage that this is like when people like when mackenzie phillips goes on oprah and she talks about getting raped and she's like i just hope it can open dialogue for other people and like why are you talking about it. Wine our archie. Just trying to sell books. No i'm hoping. I want to get it out in the light and have other people discuss it. This is what tiger woods is doing except for in a bad way for is in relationships. Because i keep having these discussions where i'm like. You can't really count. That flew z. He probably just nailed her a couple of times on the road. That's not one of his girls and then my wife is like well. What do you mean that doesn't count. I'm just saying you traveling and banging a couple flus that you saw in the lobby of the fuck of the hotel. That doesn't mean it doesn't count. I'm like well if you're gonna count those in all of a sudden would yeah. You're tired what do you mean it's like this whole like well. If you're mary tiger woods you gotta know. What do you mean you have to know a lot of bad conversations that are coming out with dr drew out a conversation with cbs. And he said you've got to wonder about addiction. That's the process that has people doing things that don't make sense now when does infidelity cross over into sex addiction. According to dr drew. I wouldn't be surprised if we find out. There's a chemical addiction as well. Sometimes these sexual compulsions come out as part of an overall addictive process to accountable. So he thinks there is a way out of this tiger. Superindent fun hooking up with hot ladies everywhere. His name's tiger going gonna bang just a few golf groupies. Yeah so what he's now now. He's all over the map. He's got porn stars waitresses and club. Vip hostesses yes so he likes all kinds of gas abroad net forty two because his name his profession his race all just everybody can make a million awesome jokes about this situation. You know it's like well. I don't i don't i don't do them like my joke. Was know tigers and a lot of trouble but golf is still boring. That's all you know. There's so many gulf references you can use. You know the eighteenth hole. What have you i. I mean obviously also. I had this argument and again. I'm going to put my foot in my mouth here. But i had this argument with i think it was. Like laurence fishburne publicist or something. Just another one of those lords getting these fishburne. I was waiting for fishburne in and i was. I was trying to have that ex- trying to have that conversation where i said. Look here's how society works like she was disgusted. You know a lot of women look at tiger woods as if this guy can cheat on his young beautiful wife. This squeaky clean coal for the love of christ. Can he's not an nba baller. Eat can cheat on his wife. Then everyone can. And i was explaining that most guys given the opportunity. That's presented like that teed up like that will she now. You don't have to worry about that because you're man works in the accounting firm of or works at the at the mill river in hot chicks will not be throwing and so what tiger woods is doing is sort of an anomaly. Because you're not in. She's like justice. Bad i disagree blah blah blah and. I just kept saying look. It's like this. Most people are honest and most people aren't thieves. No when we know would rob a liquor store but if you've found a wallet with money in it and you kept finding wallet with money in it now. You have a little more moral dilemma now. It's a very strong devout person to say. I'm gonna put an ad in the newspaper saying i found a wallet. I won't say how much money was in it. I'll let the people respond versus well. This is just found money at this sports model. You know at a in the vip area of club. It's basically like a suitcase full of unmarked bills. I'll take it a step further. They come to. You don't thinks out shrimp clubs because that probably would have been a story already with the celebrity insists news you you well..

But as of last few days they've come to include a broader set of shoes mostly about the economy. But there's also a lot of resentment against president of on duke will. Let's start with tax reform. That kicked things off what was in that. Legislation sought to increase tax revenue for the government. So what would have done a lot of things that economists have long pleaded the government to do for example it would remove many vat exemptions which mostly benefit the rich it would increase the number of people paying income tax. It would have even taxed pensions which aren't tax right now. In columbia

Patrick's Hot Take on Clubhouse

"Everybody it's another episode of after hours and today. Oh boy we're going to talk about the most fomo inducing social media app out there drum. Roll me second drummer. Drummoyne desk here. It's called clubhouse okay so you might remember a couple of weeks ago. We had A listener mail. Message from brent mcginnis and i was talking to brat around that time and we stayed in touch. He wrote me a note and he said hey. Do you have any advice for clubhouse. You know i'm going to start getting involved clubhouse and my my answer was i don't know because clubhouses causing me a bunch of foam stress i don't think about clubhouse and so i decided to talk about club does this week because it. I just said it like a canadian. Their club hosts. I meant clubhouse. Because everybody's talking about clubhouse. I feel like every conversation i have has a clubhouse element and everybody kind of criticize out clubhouses the worst but yet they're all on it and so i just think it's interesting to unpack that. What the heck is going on with clubhouse and so i have five conham went through for five hot takes on clubhouse that i wanna share with you today okay. Hot take number one this. I don't think it's that hard to take. But tell you think i think clubhouse is interesting and i'm gonna tell you why i have spent a little time on there and people have cool conversations. That are outside of the norm. So i think the very obvious use case clubhouse it's a place to congregate a following so for example we can have a really cool foam sapiens event. Where a bunch of us get together and we start talking about the show and the things that we like from the show. It'd be great chance for me to meet some you listeners. And maybe we'll even do that in fact if you're interested doing that and you're a member of clubhouse I would love to hear more about that. You can actually follow me on clubhouse at petro mcguinness so check me out patrick mcguinness and i just like like the fact that you get groups of people together and there are some really interesting people. Obviously the musk's of the world now those types come on. That's great too. But i i was on a A bunch of conversations about dating or about social life for about politics and people. I never heard of were getting up and talking pretty honestly and sometimes saying some crazy things. I was like ward. You said that. While but i just think it's a great way to learn about topics that you may not have exposure to and frankly i was looking to a conversation about race and that's a conversation that i really wanted to hear and i don't have all the time with with certain people in so hearing about Concepts of racial equity and and in from people who are living Living lives are affected by racism for me was super education. I valued being able to hear that. So i think there's a lot of value for people when they listen on clubhouse but let's move onto number two hot tag number two. It is super super time. Consuming i mean you get on clubhouse and then you like fourteen hours later when you get off because your phone is dying. You're like oh my god like what time go i. I wonder if people maybe just put it on in the background while they're doing other things but who is just. It just sucks up a lot of time. And i have a good friend who's been doing a benz on there and she was telling me her experiences like yeah. I love doing it. But frankly i you know i i. It's like start things. Go for three hours. So you start at nine o'clock and suddenly midnight and you're sorta like gosh. What are the time go and so it does require a ton of time and that's an interesting thing because obviously during a pandemic people have time to spare and so it's just a great way to kill time but what's going to happen when people are busy again. Are they gonna wanna be clubhouse. That is a mystery. We don't know what's going to happen. But i do think that the time sort of element. It's going to have to change because people cannot devote three hours for conversation Every week or every night or however frequently you're on it. And i think maybe after the pandemic will see that those conversations will get a little shorter. That's what i would predict but we will see when that happens.

"Joe. Petro welcome to the voice podcast. Thanks to be here. Glad to have you really cited for me to get someone from nuance particularly. Who's been there as long as you have. <hes>. a dominant name and the voice of the i industry over decades and things are a little different. Now because there's also other big names in this space i think there was a long time when nuance only big name. And the voice. Today i space but we we have some other household names that creep into the conversation from time to time. So i've been looking forward to this for a long time. Why don't you tell people just to get started a little bit about who you are what you do on a regular basis day-to-day basis in nuance. Sure so on the chief technology officer of nuance and i've been here for about twelve twelve years or so. When i came in joined the organization. I was coming criminal <unk>. Medical record bender company. And and i joined a nuance to basically run research and development for healthcare and i think that division at that point in time with something like i want to say two hundred two hundred twenty million or something like that in revenue you know after the last twelve years on that now be close to a billion dollars in five hundred hundred dollar enterprise organization as as well which show. We'll talk about but see. Te'o i'm responsible for all of the products and all the technology and all the research you know that. That nuance does both amana prized healthcare side. And really over the course of the last two years i transitioned from healthcare. Are the svp to the cto a. We pulled it everything our company together and when we <hes>. When we did that a lot of it's kind magic started to happen. You know we made a lot of progress. You know both <unk>. Both in the market as well as you from an innovation point of view. So it's been a super exciting a couple years you know as a cto. I basically lead the entire organization. So we worry about you. know how. Innovate and wood products. Bring to market in you. Know how talking to the market our creating messages around the product. How the products connect with you know the value propositions we spend our money as well at the at the same time so this kind of operational responsibility as well. It's been a good ride less twelve years. Yeah i think about it as as looking at your background you are you as an iraqi i think originally and there's not a lot of people i mean in your role. Who have mechanical background. Usually it's doubly computer science something related to that occasionally linguists <hes>. So so that was low surprising. So how did you get from a mechanical engineer earlier. In your career. What you're doing back into that like full software into eclipses. Emr like a graduated from chemical engineering in the early nineties and <hes>. And i was graduating in boston. It's kinda distress market at that moment. A moment in time in i was really fascinated with computer aided engineering so the application of computers to really hard engineering problems time. A company called electron data systems was was hiring. It was ross perot company. They had they had a program called c. Four technologies and basically what they did is they. They lived with general motors a michigan in all over the world and they did all of their it but they also did all of the computer aided engineering finding element. Analysis computers factor. It was a it was very much like an inflection. Point because compute was just getting to the point where it's becoming super powerful. So cad system solid modeling <hes>. So i immediately kind of went out of school in directly directly into that and i was using computers to solve really hard mechanical engineering problems. In really what happened was i got a. I finally got involved in software companies involved with the application engineering. Some leaders in those companies realized. I could talk to clients so i spent a lot of time to doing that. And then you know it's just it feels like it's been a twenty five year journey journey. <unk> is kind of really really quickly. I just kind of progressed and kinda migrated up through you know. Increasing levels of responsibility you know had the lucky app stance of running some really really big organizations which eventually position me for you know for roles like this kind of interested in your your time and eclipses to media bars evolved for certain since since you were there obviously was in it was a really dynamic time when you were there to fifteen years ago <hes>. You know what are your thoughts about how that space has evolved electronic medical records for those who are listening or ernest space. How that's evolved over time because we've got a couple of big players spent some really big concentration of some players but then there's all these satellite systems of engagement and specialty assistance. Which what are your thoughts. On that general. I think in some ways things have come a long way in in some ways. They're very kind of the same <hes>. I got to be honest with you that that role that i took there when they called me i was actually in a in a distress. Kinda startup company that we we were turning around. And you know when i got the call was an odd call because i didn't know anything about healthcare at the time and they convinced me co executives. They are in the board of directors. Convince me oh you don't need to know much about healthcare. We need some the deliver good product. And i didn't know this at the time but it was. The a lot of people were kind of recycling their way through like healthcare's small community and yes it basically convinced me like we've interviewed everybody. We know who's out there. We need some of outside the industry. We'll teach you healthcare.

Wonder Woman 1984 is better than the original

"So we can get down the details of bottom line. Did you enjoy it. Was this good movie. yes. I thought it was great. It was probably little better than the first one. That is for reference sake and for four reference sake. Disa- gives a little context. What did you think of wonder woman. I think generally got positive reviews but there are folks didn't like it or thought it was a little derivative comic book films. Where did you stand on the opinion of that original film. I was great. I was i went into that. In twenty seventeen with sort of neutral expectations given how inconsistent dc extended universe movies are. I was very pleasantly surprised. It's probably my favorite of the recent modern movies and naturally four is a little bit better than that. Well that is high. Praise the main as you note the dcu has been inconsistent but there have been some some bright spots here there without going to spoil territory. I know you can't spoil too much. The details of what makes one thousand nine hundred four better than the original. The emotional core. He's very strong. That's that's super vague. Butch like so. Diana goes on an emotional journey. Tried to put this announce votary terms. Yes she she mirrors a lot of characters around her alike so petro pascal plays max lord's and he's kind of the bad guy and krista week is barbara minerva. She's somewhere in there. I won't spoil the nature of her character and they kind of go on these different emotional journeys based on magic the magic in this and he's kind of propels the plot and they each react to his in different ways. Movie always takes time to establish the characters emotional baseline where they're coming from. And it's very clearly informs how they react to the situation and it's just really satisfying like that. Okay and in terms of how it fits with the the dc you i know. It's not exactly a cohesive. Simak universe like marvels is but in terms of like linkage to some of these other movies. Is there some of that or is it. More of a standalone i know. Dc is largely been pushing towards more standalone films. Where where does this sort of stack up. Well so this is. The title suggests that in one thousand nine hundred eighty four where the twenty seventeen was set during world war one. That's so it's all well before the made events of the other movies so they feel very stand alone. It's her kind of passed before we see in those other movies and as a result like they could be watched on their own. Like in sequence. Which i think is really satisfying took. Follow along with her specifically this is. This film is notable. Not just because it's the next dc or actually the first big comic book movie to come out this year. It's also coming out here in the us at least coming out on hbo mac for free if are subscriber and that is a pretty radical move. I'm just curious what you think that experience or if that experiences changes in one of these big cinematic blockbusters really meant to be seen in a theater is going to be debuting in. Most people's living rooms are on their phones or tablets so i went to a socially distance. I am screening here in london to. I feel like all this is the way to see. This is a very big spectacular movie like they all are and i was glad to see it on a big screen like first safety reasons like hbo. Maximum wage ago for people in the states. All our subsequent viewings or these movies are always on tv or on atv at home at. It's fine so it's probably just idea that we should see these terms on the big screen but like if you have a big tv and look decent sound system. This'll be pretty spectacular. And you don't have to deal with the stuff you have to deal with going to movie theaters. Like deep la thoughts or you know. The usual distractions. At least you have that control.

Smoking-gun email reveals how Hunter Biden introduced Ukrainian businessman to VP dad

"The New York Post breaks a story about Hunter Biden and Joe Biden. And essentially, the story is this 100 Biden, who is in fact a crack, and I mean he is is a drug addict. He's an unsavory character. He has several hey, has had many affairs with various different Women. He's he's amassed. 100 100. Biden is just a mess is a mess of a human being. And not Joe's fault, per se. I mean, there were lots of good parents who have a message for Children. But it is Joe's fault that Joe has allowed Hunter Biden to run across the world, picking up sacks of cash by trading on his last name. And that is 100,000 has been doing for years. Right victim. Sacks of cash in China picked up sacks of cash in Ukraine, and for a long time conservatives have been focused in on 100 Biden's activities with regard to charisma. Now the original narrative with regard a breeze must breeze. My Satan is a natural gas and oil company in Ukraine, 100 was sitting on the board of the company and picking up checks for $50,000 a month despite the fact that he didn't know anything. About natural gas or oil, despite the fact that he himself was a personal mess. The only reason he was on that board is because he was related to Joe Biden. Joe Biden was then the vice president of the United States and largely in charge of Ukrainian policy. Well, Joe Biden and bragged on tape about getting one of the chief prosecutor's over in Ukraine fired He threatened with hold $1 billion in foreign aid to Ukraine until they fired this guy. Joe Biden always claimed that it had nothing to do with Hunter. This prosecutor claimed that he was about to investigate bereavement that was the company Hunter was working for. The chain has never quite been made. So there's a lot of controversy over the over whether Victor Shokhin, who was that prosecutor was actually going to prosecute charisma. There was indeed a lot of focus on Victor Shokhin is a possible corrupt figure inside Ukraine. Lot of people in Europe wanted. See Victor Show can go as the chief prosecutor in Ukraine, Biden has always claimed that his firing of victim Victor Shokhin was on the up and up. Soaking has always claimed that it was corrupt. That controversy has been out there for quite a while. What is unchallenged is that Joe Biden's family members ranging from his brother to his son, use his name in order to make money for themselves. And that does have an element of corruption to it. Now, The best that you can say about it is that Joe Biden turned a blind eye to it. Right. And this is sort of like show has argued Joe Biden has said, Well, I didn't know about it. Nobody ever did anything. Nobody ever did anything, man. Nobody. Come on, man. Come on. I never no, no. Come on. Okay, so Here's the bombshell. The New York Post reports that 100 Biden actually brokered a meaning between a Ukrainian oligarchs who was a breeze, MMA chief member and Joe Biden directly That's what one of these emails tended to suggest. So here's the story from the New York Post 100 Biden introduce his father, then Vice President Joe Biden, top executive in the Ukrainian energy firm less than a year before the elder Biden pressure government officials into Ukraine into in Ukraine into firing a prosecutor who is investigating the company, according to emails obtained by the post. Never before revealed meeting is mentioned in a message of appreciation that are sky and an advisor to the Board of Charisma allegedly sent Hunter Biden on April 17th 2015, about a year after Hunter joined the charisma board and reported salary of up to 50 grand a month. The email reads Deer hunter. Thank you for inviting me to D C and giving an opportunity to meet your father and spend some time together. It's really an honor and a pleasure. An earlier email from May 2014. Also shows are sky reportedly bereavement number three exact asking Hunter for advice on how you could use your influence on the company's behalf. A blockbuster correspondence is The New York Post reports flies in the face of Joe Biden's claim that he has never spoken to my son about his overseas business dealings. It's containing a massive from of data recovered from a laptop computer. Computer was dropped off, apparently at a repair shop in Biden's home state of Delaware in April 2019, according to the store's owner, other material extracted from the computer, including raunchy 12 Minute video that appears to show Admitted struggling with addiction problems smoking crack. Well engaged in a sex act with an unidentified woman, as well as numerous other sexually explicit images. The customer who brought in the water damage Mac book pro for a pair never paid for the service were retrieved it or a higher drive on which its contents restored, according to the shop owner who said he tried repeatedly to contact Shop owner couldn't positively identify the customer as Hunter Biden but said that the laptop for a sticker from the Beau Biden Foundation, named after hundreds of late brother and former Delaware attorney general Photos of a devil or a federal subpoena given to the Post show that both the computer and hard drive was seized by the FBI in December after the shop's owner says he alerted the feds to their existence before turning over the gear, according to the shop owner. He made a copy of the hard drive and later gave it to former Mayor Rudy Giuliani's later Barbara Costello. Steve Bannon, the former adviser to President Trump told the post about the existence of the hard drive in late September. Giuliani provided the post with a copy of it on Sunday. Less than eight months after Bashar sky thanks Hunter Biden for the introduction to his dad, the then vice president admittedly pressure Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk into getting rid of Prosecutor General Viktor Shokhin by threatening to withhold a $1 billion US loan guarantee during a December 2015 trip to Kiev by an infamously brag to the Council on Foreign Relations.

"Know One of the unique things about what you guys do Corbin as a community work, and you and you know discuss community recovery partners, can you? Can you help us understand that a little bit more? And how that particular aspect of what you guys do makes you different? Yeah, absolutely and I'll start by just describing our full care model so first and foremost we believe in evidence, and so our entire care model is based on what the? The evidence shows is effective in retaining somebody in recovery, and we looked to have long term relationships with patients over five years, and so that may not sound standard, and it's not, but data would tell you that after a year and recovery risk of relapse goes down significantly after five years. Your risk of relapse becomes that of the general public, and so that's really where we feel like you know our work is is done or close to. To Don and that's when somebody becomes part of the eleanor alumni community, but what the evidence tells you is that medication is critically important for many people to stay in recovery. We provide medication. We do full psychiatric evaluations and address all co occurring psychiatric conditions for patients in our care about eighty percent of people who have a substance use disorder have an underlying co occurring psychiatric condition depression anxiety trauma. We diagnose those and we treat those. Those within our care, you're not treating an underlying psychiatric condition and trying to treat a substance use disorder. You're not going to be effective in intriguing that we provide therapy individual group telehealth delivered therapy so really getting at the root challenges around substance use disorder. It's important that you wrap the medication with those services, and then the third leg that you asked about a recovery services delivered by our community recovery partners in community. Recovery Partners are essentially. Essentially peers and they've lived recovery experience. They serve as coaches. They serve as the glue really to retaining our community members in recovery through there. You know high touch engagement, and they go out into patients homes. If necessary, they go out into the community. They build that Longitudinal relationship to help establish that meaning and purpose in our patients lives, and so that those are those are really really critical and important to our model. That said you know. Know they typically are not resources and services that are reimbursable on a fee for service environment, and so again highlights again how important it is to have had that value based payment model as a mechanism to be able to support those folks as well as you know the rest of our our wrap services. Yeah, it makes sense and you know this model is i. think going to be a model that is a must as we take A. A look at care within communities social determined how how we actually you know address some of these things that need addressing that to your point at the beginning of the podcast don't have cpt codes is no cpt codes for community and meaning and purpose, but they're so important, and I think you know having leaders like yourself craft. These very unique business models to tackle the issues is important. What is it that inspired you to do this? Well the some of the threads. My career that we've talked about. Are you know working with vulnerable populations? Working with you know in creating unique payment and care delivery models, leveraging technology and data rates improve healthcare a found that there was just a need in this space i. partnered with some of the founders doctrines Zanga Harrison risky merchant Donnie as well as some of our investors, so we. We were incubated within an investor oxygen partners, and then we were able to take those learnings and really create a space here. That had existed. Yeah, that's fantastic. Kudos to you and your team for from what you've done this far. The traction that you guys are getting and the results. Maybe it'd be great to hear a little bit more about how you guys have created results better outcomes. Business models share with us a couple stories around that. A little bit about sort of the various services that we provide some of those rap services, but a key component of our clinical model is one of harm or use reduction. So last time we talked, we talked about population health, which is really improving the outcomes and the care for a population harm-reduction use reduction has the same approach where we're not looking at hard and fast measures. We're looking to improve ones, health and their outcomes in this space in addiction. It's typically an abstinence. Based patients are fired from treatment. You know if you relapse, but what we know about addiction is that it's it's chronic progressive. It's relapsing and so relaxed as As part of the disease, so often will accept patients into our practice. Who they you know, they might be on heroin. I'm they also you know, smoke, weed and drink beer on the weekend with their friends and they want to get off heroin. Maybe WANNA get off, we'd they still want to have a beer with their friends on the weekend. Most treatment providers would say well we'll. You're not ready and you can't. You know we won't accept you into our program. We accept those patients into our program. You know great example is one of our first patients came in with exactly that story want. It didn't want to be on heroin. Heroin but didn't WANNA. Give up that beer that socializing with his friends on the weekend. So we said okay we'll work with. You brought him into our practice. He also said he didn't want to take medication, so didn't want to be on medication assisted treatment, which is you know? The evidence shows that your outcomes will be a lot better and your ability to stay in recovery is significantly improved with medication, but you know we. We accepted him. We continue to ask him if you would consider a medication assisted treatment and he did, he didn't want to. He had a bad experience with suboxone. which is the key medication in this space? Space and didn't didn't WANNA. Go on suboxone. And we said we came to an agreement, and if the he said if he relapsed, he would then consider suboxone. Well, you know. Take US three weeks in. And he relapsed and had an overdose. And you know a couple of things that that highlights you know. Many treatment providers within have have fired him from treatment wouldn't have welcomed bath. We of course told him it's you know it's okay. If you relapse, come back to us so in doing so he reached out to us as opposed to going to the emergency room where historically he turned in and out of the emergency room we. We got him then started on medication, and he has been with us ever since, and he kept having that beer on the weekend for a while, but now he's stopped having that beer on the weekend prior to coming and working with us, he had been going to the on average two times months. He hasn't been to the emergency room since he's been working with us about the past eight months. He his quality of life is much higher. He's moved in with his girlfriend or just a lot of positive things that have happened with his with his life. That's that's a patient story. We see in the data as you know, I love. Love data are member reported Ed inpatient and Residential Treatment Center. Utilization is for for patients in our care goes down about eighty percent when they come into treatment with us..

Coronavirus, Oil, and Kansas

"Okay Jacob first thing. We've got to talk about here. Is OPEC the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries? Which is this amazing global economic thing. Yes so okay. Opec goes back to the nineteen sixties. That's when a bunch of oil. Exporting Countries all got together and they ask themselves this basic question. Why are we all competing with each other? Why are we all pumping more and more oil and selling it for lower and lower prices when instead we all just get together and agree to limit production and sell oil for a higher price? So they formed. What's called a cartel? A cartel is basically just a bunch of different people or companies who are in the same business or industry and they get together and agree to limit production and coordinate prices. Doing this form. A cartel is any industries basically. It's their dream. Come true you know. Instead of competing out in the brutal world of the free market you just carve up the market with your pals and let the prophets role. In in fact the only reason more industries don't do this don't form cartels is because it is wildly illegal if all say that airlines in America got together and decided. Let's just coordinate on routes and fares and they got caught. They would be massive legal trouble but those. Us rules don't apply to the countries and OPEC they're Muslim countries in the Middle East and Africa. And they're those oil industries are largely controlled by their governments themselves. So they're oil. Ministers can get together and decide how much oil each country is going to produce for decades OPEC was this cartel unofficially de facto lead by Saudi Arabia. That had all this power over the world's supply of oil when OPEC decided to cut back. The price went up when they decided to pump more. The price fell and then just in the past decade or so that changed fracking took off the United States and suddenly the US was producing all this oil and the US of course the oil industry is private not public the US is not part of OPEC so the rise of US oil production meant that the Saudis and the other OPEC countries could no longer cut back on production and control. The price like they used to. The cartel was just not that strong anymore so to fight back. Opec got bigger the teamed up with Russia. We don't really think of Russia as a petro state but it sort of is. I didn't really realize this before we started working on the story but along with Saudi Arabia and the US. It's one of the three biggest oil producing nations in the world. Something like half of its government. Budget comes from oil and gas revenue. People started calling this new group of Saudis and the Russians and everybody else OPEC plus sounds like a boring streaming service. Actually a pretty effective global mega cartel and in two thousand sixteen the OPEC plus countries agreed to cut production. Prices started going back up and the cartel dream was back. The cartel was working until just a few days ago when something at the cartel went horribly wrong and Mary. When we came in Monday morning we saw this stuff happening in the oil market. I asked You like. Who Should we talk to? So my immediate thought was Ed Crooks if I have to phone a friend on oil. I'm calling Ed. He used to cover energy at the times for ages. Now he's at an energy consultancy. Wood Mackenzie so on Monday. Ed came in to help us make sense of what was going on. It's one of those days that you get very very rarely In life very rarely the oil market or in any other business which is a really dramatic unexpected event. That completely changes your world. Ed says okay to understand what is just happening in the past few days with oil. Start by going back. A couple of months. Think about China's response to the corona virus. Which of course we've heard a lot about but this time think about it from the point of view of oil what we saw in China were these very very Severe measures in order to curb the spread of the virus and so there's a lot of factories closed huge restrictions on travel. People would not driving around goods. Not being trucked around people would not flying and so all of those things hit oil demand in China in particular and China is the world's biggest oil importer so in the first few months of this year the global demand for oil fell by the most since the financial crisis more than ten years ago and the price of oil just started falling so just last week. The country's in OPEC in the oil cartel got together to do what cartels do European countries got together on Thursday. And they said right. This is all plan. We need to count a production by one point five million barrels a day to the end of the year we should bring the oil market back into balance. And that way everybody. Happy and prices will stabilize so that is old school. Saudi led OPEC the next day. They go to meet with. Opec plus basically adding in the Russians. The Friday you start hearing noises from the Russian Camp. Well then not happy about this. They weren't necessarily going to go along with it. So it's getting weird. There are delays. It's clear that not all is well. It's clear that you aren't just going to have an easy agreement. Everyone coming out and smiling and shaking hands or maybe not shaking hands and saying yeah. We've all agreed on this. One point five million barrels a day cut and the time dragged on and then the meeting kind of broke up in chaos and the this was the really kind of telling a comment when the Russian Energy Minister Alexander. Novak walked out of the meeting. He said everyone can pump as much as they want. He said you can pump it will. What did you think when you heard what had happened so I thought wow with my first reaction? I thought that the edited version. I mean the whole point of a cartel is UK at pump as much as you want right exactly. That discipline is everything. A cartel needs to things. It needs as larger market share as possible as many members as possible and it needs discipline and on Friday. It seemed to lose both of those things and then in the days after the meeting Russia and Saudi Arabia both went further. They said okay. Not only. Are we not going to cut production. We are going to increase production that promise of increased supply. Even as demanded falling led to that giant fall in oil prices on Monday. There is this really basic question here. Which why these countries have this dream thing that most businesses would kill for a cartel they can rig the market in their favor. All they have to do is agree to cut production. Why didn't they do that? The absolute truth of the of the. Why did this fall apart? One is that we are still trying to find out I'll selves. We don't really know but it does have an educated guess. It's frankly the best explanation I've heard for what happened and I love it because it speaks to. What's going on here with OPEC but it gets at this really basic kind of human tension that exists in any cartel. It works like this everybody in the cartel agrees yes sure we should cut production and

The Monoliths of Lalibela

"Going to be discussing a particular of example of construction. That is really just as amazing as you know. Making all these giant blocks bringing them together and building the pyramid but This particular example is also going to buck the traditional steps that we've discussed here and we're going to be looking at century's old Christian temples in Ethiopia that were we're not built from blocks of stone that were quarried over here and then brought together and then assembled into a building. No these are free reese standing monolithic churches that are each hewn from the solid. Red Volcanic Goria under laid by dark gray a basalt standing tall in the quarries from which they were sculpted so basically these were hewn out of solid stone. The quarry becomes the courtyard. Yeah it's a building that is not built but released from the earth. subtractive manufacturing of Marvel's it it is. It is amazing. I was not familiar with these until just last week when I was looking around for an episode For us to do and I was initially thought. Oh why don't we do Petra the the ruins in Jordan you know with the where the architecture is built into the side of this this kind of like ravine a situation right if you think you've never seen these these rock hewn Buildings you probably have their featured for example in Indiana Jones and the last crusade the show up in several several movies pet petro specifically in this case right so so is the no. Petro would be a good Episode started looking roundabout indie Petras fascinating. Perhaps we'll come back back to it but then I I was just looking around at other. Examples of of buildings had been hewn from stone. And then these just really stood out as the prime prime example like the most extreme example of what you could do with subtractive manufacturing of an entire building to bill to construct a building by not even constructing it by just carving away at solid stone until it is there with no need for bricks or mortar or would or nails or any of this architecture. Protect sure as sculpture. Yeah so where will you find these will you will find them. In lally Bella Ethiopia Ethiopia is of course the nation in eastern in Africa and they stood there at least since the late twelfth century CE though probably get into some of the dating in greater detail later later but I just a few notes about Ethiopia. In general modern Ethiopia is the most populous landlocked country in the world and the second most populous African nation after Nigeria Copa is also considered one of only two African nations never to be subjected to Long Term European colonization position the other being Liberia and to be more specific it was it was never it was never call an is during the nineteenth century period where so much of Africa was though it was occupied by Italy of during the Second World War but not not long enough for there to be like true lasting cultural change because it still throughout its history. It certainly came into contact with foreign ideas and influences. And we'll be discussing a major one here today because because one of the things you noticed about Is that it's majority. Religion is the Ethiopian Orthodox Taylor Hato church what's known as an Oriental Orthodox Christian church and it dates back many centuries. There's also a sizable Islamic population in Ethiopia followed in popularity by Protestants traditional faiths Catholicism and Judaism. Now of course there are other fascinating things about Ethiopia's well for instance. Ethiopian cuisine has certainly traveled well around the world. I think thing is widely believed to be the origin. Place of coffee is coffee and Okra is well. I was I chatted with Anne of our fellow. PODCAST here in the Atlanta offices saver and I said Hey. Have you guys done anything. I need the OPN cuisine because we could mention on the podcast and they said that had not yet though they both love the food but they have done an episode Okra and they've done an episode on coffee that get into those origins and say those are two of my favorite plant based foods. Are you an ochre fan or would you one of those people who thinks that slimy. Oh I love Okra and I love it because it is slimy especially in Gumbo. Does it acts as a thickening agent so I I want there to be Okra present in media dish buses great. It's great fried. It's great escape pickled Yeah I'm an Okra Fan for sure. Okay we're on the same page. I like all those ways to. I also really like Okra in Indian food. Yeah it goes really good with Indian spices who I had it in Indian food before but maybe not recently enough for it to really struck a chord. I'll have to seek it out. There is a restaurant here in town. That made a really amazing curried Okra and then then they went out of business. All right well. Let's talk in greater detail tale about Ethiopian Christianity. Then because since we're focusing in on Old Christian temples that were carved out of the ground in Ethiopia. We should in describe how Christianity came to East Africa. Sure So I was looking at a scientific paper that will make a brief reference to later in the episode and the authors of this paper Ethiopian scientists AGFA Wilson S Rot. And you did. I do They point out in the background. Section of the paper that the broader tradition of rock hewn churches in Ethiopia is historically associated with the coming of a group of figures known. Is the nine saints who were alleged to have journeyed from Egypt and Syria during the late fifth and early sixth centuries to preach the gospel of Christianity in Ethiopia Propia and more specifically to spread and promote the monastic lifestyle. So I was digging into this claim I wanted to learn more about the nine saints and this eventually led me down a path where I found a really awesome entry about Ethiopian Christianity in the monastic tradition. In a book called the encyclopedia the of Monasticism edited by this story and Will Johnston with this specific entry on Ethiopian Monastic Christianity written by the Ethiopian American philology Lalla Gist getachew highly. I was reading this as well. And it is quite Quite a fascinating entry. I just had no idea just how imported the monastic tradition was for just Ethiopian. Culture General. Yeah Yeah so highly writes that Due to the proximity of Ethiopia to the Middle East some Christianity entity probably began to spread their organically as soon as the religion was founded but highly also claims that Ethiopian Christianity is a form of the religion. That's it's kind of uniquely shaped by monks and monastic influences. So what exactly would that mean well. Monasticism is the tradition we associate with with monks and nuns. It's the strain of faith that calls for a radical lifestyle of religious devotion often including things like vows of poverty or vows of chastity or vows of silence or fasting General seclusion from secular life. As you know the priest or preacher within the religion might usually live among the society preaching the faith meanwhile the monk shakes in some way to live outside the society rejecting many of the comforts and pleasures of dorm life making their day to day habits and living conditions themselves kind of a radical demonstration of

believe the holidays are here and of course we're talking about what's going on in Washington DC and you're going to be a holiday situations where you might run into people with different viewpoints than your own you might run into people who have very loud opinions other than your own how do you deal with people like that huh yeah I do have some of them in my family and there it's some it's it's too you know it's it's a concern of of many the most recent year than it all it seems to be increased because of anxiety right now since we're in the middle of this impeachment hearing process out yes well when I tell what I tell people to do it number of things you know we're so used to talking were shouting at each other on social media we don't listen to each other anymore so the thing is if you're gonna be sitting down at a table with family with close friends yeah Hey attention and listen don't just start down responding in the way that you might on social media and the other thing I suggest to hostess this is your party you tell them when to come you tell her to bring the marshmallow green bean thank you can designate you can designate it's going to be politics free thanksgiving dinner or we're gonna have a politics our before we get down to dinner you're in charge and you set the rules and then you have to try to import them which of course is a little bit of a problem as people drink perhaps and so on there you go yeah when you get out involves sometimes that they did that to the liquid courage liquid courage I also makes the volume louder it it it certainly can I always like to joke that you know it can martini if the solution for everything but really it's not especially when you are leading we we don't want to let our loose lips sink ships and and her keep going up I think yeah I think you know it's really important remember this is the time to be grateful and that while we have many things that divide us in this country we have more a bad that bind us and I think that takes some some intention to to refocus on another site Steve better is joining us now is an add a kid in manners experts what his Facebook and Twitter done to the modern conversation especially around the dinner table has it changed the way people I don't know interact with each other because they now think once it at the dinner table this is just like Twitter this is just like Facebook I can just say whatever I want yeah I mean that that you got to the case and even with with friends and relatives Hey you know many of them have deal unfriended or block when they disagree on Facebook I see lots of lots of my quote Facebook friends and saying you know they won't have any friends of the one of a good friends are they won't have any black friends then you take out the table and you know it's red and blue and purple all together and you know the kind of it becoming a unique situation and we yeah we need to find ways to to engage with each other that's this course to and disagreement ours for part of the American fabric and because can't exploded all and I you know I think you know whatever whatever side of the political divide Iraq I always tell ordinary citizens like us yeah we have the opportunity we have the challenge of modeling the kind of behavior that we want to see in Washington or state capital to start at home start with your own friends and family you know that makes a lot of sense eight if you can be cordial and you know I I have the fact that I know my sister in law thinks a lot differently than me politically I just don't bring anything up and it's it's one of those cases where you almost have to deflect she'll say something you know the president said this did dance like yeah yeah but so you know when I got on one talk about that right now I think city deflection is going to work great in situations like this that is that is a great you know that a great response yeah the other thing is if we're going to engage and talk about these these topics don't make it personal in one of the reasons that so many people admired the late senator John McCain was he always focused on policies he never focused on personalities so yeah talk about the budget talk about LGBTQ issues or question but keep to the issue don't you know don't start calling anyone an ignorant this is bad and many of the other you know what I would do it we will use right now yeah there is a you know get em snow you have snow flake wake up you did bad things to say to people exactly no one who are you calling to know quite exactly right don't question people character no name calling and just to get it and it also helps to talk about what people's interests are what they've been doing lately get off the subject learn to re direct is you know sometimes people come to these things and let's be honest they want to get in a fight they want to argue about this they're tired of you know maybe maybe they know you're a conservative in there a liberal and they just want to go after the about voting for that terrible president trump we're going to impeach him you gotta learn to deflect well and I think you know we're also much more you know much more than a political views so a lot of us don't see your family except for once or twice here this is an opportunity to catch up no wonder the nieces and nephews doing so on and so forth what's going on with the job it is also a way to find you know the prediction of the bridge that can cost these pipes which all that kind of need to be thinking about and yeah that's that's that's what this holiday is about to move an American in American national holiday yeah yeah I I submit thanksgiving but I I like doused are where we started off just going around the table twenty one I'm grateful for this particular year maybe the food on the table it may be from my spouse it really brings people together and allows us the opportunity to express gratitude and that's a great and important saying that is

And I am surprised than happy to hear freedom of movement freedom of movement at night. So did you go by yourself at night? Did you feel good? Did you feel secure because that's definitely what the average person is thinking about when they hear a visit to Baghdad. Are I traveled with a group, and I'll be there was one night.

"The petro token would be on a theory him at least three different a theory i'm tokens calling themselves petro petro one on twitter one on four chan actually pretended to be venezuela's petro they then seized the opportunity to ask people to send them a theory on yet another unrelated petro coin experienced a nearly one hundred percent jump in price after venezuela launched is token it's also worth noting the petro white paper contains language like quote the presale token will not be part of the petro network until petro distribution and quote the token may be exchanged for petro unquote suggesting that these petro presale tokens may not be petro proper and the final product may not be on any e m and that's my understanding of what was going to happen to show you said you saw the calendar or the time line of potential events on the bitter a website and they say right there that this is just a token that eventually you can exchange that and get the actual suppose it petro once it supposedly released in the future yes was idled think will ever happen these scam campaigns were probably not very successful although the address listed by the scam token on fort four chan contains four hundred twenty us dollars worth of ether if they're m's inhouse cryptocurrency meanwhile president venezuelan president maduro says the petro token sale has raised seven seminar fifty million dollars so far it should be noted this figure doesn't seem to be verifiable on the block chain yet and one any a macau that observers has flagged as potentially being the petro account does not reflect that figure still its early days for the petro in a state issued cryptocurrency is truly unlike anything the world is seen before for better or for worse but this is not a great start so that's the latest on the potentially a botched screw job of the petro cryptocurrency which as darrell has predicted may not ever see the light of day the aas the in the economic incentives of the administration would be to just take the theory i'm and run or in this case not run but you know by more things and paid debts if that's what they're actually.
