We actually had a podcast not too long ago with chad moro. Who is the cto chief.

Furniture Finishing Q&A with Mike Mascelli Finishing
"This questions from chips. Stoltzfus and chip. If you have anything to do with. Stoltzfus is restaurant in lancaster. Pencil or no bird in hand pennsylvania. Oh country i miss that place dearly. All right i have been a professional woodworker for almost twenty five years. I started out in a large making church furniture and have since worked mostly in smaller cabinet shops. In that time every finisher. I've ever worked with said that you shouldn't san to sand higher than one. Twenty or one fifty grit. They claimed once you get higher than fifty polish is the would not let stain it here. Like it is designed yet. I often hear you talking about standing to three twenty or higher before finishing all of the shops. I've worked with have had have used wiping saints with some type of lacquer. Topcoat is the difference in sanding due to different finishes. I've started using rubio. monaco. And i've noticed that it gives a smoother finish if the piece of sand to the higher grits. Thank you for your time and great work with the pun. So well i've heard this many times Thank you for asking a couple of things that i think we should just sorta get On the table it matters a lot. What kind of would you're working with More so even than the than the finished. So if you're working in oak or mahogany and really open. Grain pours wood particularly oak. You can get away with a lot of stuff on on course grit sandy because you have such deep pours and lines in the in the in the grain of the as it is if you're in maple or you're in cherry It's a very different game. So you have You're talking about church furniture. A lot of that furniture's oak. Yeah in a production shop setting you're gonna send this stuff with a production machine may be a big stir machine dual pad sander And you're going to get this stuff out the door because you're in a commercial setting so sanding to a one twenty or one fifty you're leaving fairly significant scratches so in in oak if you see a neatly along the grain those scratches won't be as objectionable if you're using wedding stained product. I'm holding this up for the folks that can't see this. This is a mohawk wiping stain product. That's pretty typical you. You'd see in a commercial shop and this is mostly a die product. That doesn't have a lot of pigment in it again. I did a a article which we coming out and find woodworking here soon about diane pigment but die think about the like a strong food coloring or t it's going to penetrate into the would as much as it can whatever the would will absorb and that's what you get. A pigment is nicely ground fine particles of nice dirt so the pigment if you had it in a wiping stained product or know a commercial setting if you're gonna put die on it's going to absorb what it's going to absorb and that heart and twenty grit sanded. Surface is going to absorb guy and the grooves of the santa scratches are going to absorb a little bit more die because you have the sides of the of the valley if you will open if you have a pigment in your in your stand mix if you have deep scratches like one twenty scratches the pigment is gonna lodge in those scratches so what we always say in. The shops are if you sat at one twenty and uses a pigment stain and you see and at a higher grit. The one twenty grit is going to appear darker because more pigment is gonna stay behind when you if you do a white walker if you leave it there because you there's more places for the pigment the lodge there's there's more surface area right. There's there's a valleys of the sand scratches the pigments going to go in there and it's going to stay so if you take the exact same piece of lumber and sanded at one twenty and seeing like to and stain it. It's going to look darker at one. Twenty okay is that to twenty. So that's one aspect of the of the the higher grit sitting as far as this business about polishing the. Would if you see end up high enough if you take a piece of maple cherry and you sanded up to four five six hundred you'll create a surface. That's almost like this piece of plexiglass. It's very very resistant to anything. Even the dies so it really is true. If you stand up too far you will. You will resist the action of the die penetrating and of course there's no place for the pigment to lodge so it's going to look very very light so to to well. I always say as a rule of thumb is that the middle ground here is to twenty okay and there's two reasons for the to twenty one for the color and once for the fish on the collar side if you're sanding at you know eighty and one twenty and one fifty whatever it is if you don't sand perfectly each grit progressively you're gonna leave one hundred grit scratch someplace so if santa to twenty neatly it even if you leave one hundred grade or one hundred fifty grit. Scratch somewhere in that pattern. It won't be noticeable because the to twenty will help smooth that over the other reason for the one on the finnish. Side is if you leave to twenty grid scratches most finishes at two applications. You know a couple of dry mills of finish most finishes will bridge to twenty scratches at one twenty. You gotta put a whole lot of finish on there to get it to bridge the the valleys and in the case of church furniture. It didn't matter you know if it's oak. You're not going for a full pour piano by finish so it's okay you can leave him at one. Twenty it doesn't make the finish. Grab any better I mean you need a little bit of tooth for like the modern era things and stuff even this rubio other than lacquers which melt into each other. You need a little bit of tooth and usually in between the coats is when we would send three twenty okay so the bare would prep would be bringing up through the grit. Says you need to Up to about two twenty as a rule of thumb in most woods an inbetween your coats of finish. If you're going to scuff in between that would be at say three twenty at the most if you go too much then it's true you're finish isn't gonna would here so Also if you do test boards now sanding at two twenty the you're you're you're staining will look differently if you finish at one eighty or one hundred question Particularly again if the if the caller i will call it. Disdain is sort of or ginger. If the color delivery system includes some pigment those pigment particles that powder dirt is gonna lodge in those poor in the pores of the wood and in your scratches and the other thing is if you're going to sand rough if you're gonna leave it at one twenty or one fifty you'd better stand really really neatly with the grain. Is any them cross grade. He's gonna show up like a scar. A so special pigtail swirls from iran. A morbid sander and again give you some some advice on that if you're standing up to two twenty with a random orbit i'm gonna really good ones. There's air powered ones in. There's there's an electric ones even really good to twenty random orbit. You're gonna get little swirly marks. You can handsome those out but you got back up to one eighty. Okay get those swirly marks at back up to one eighty on a hand block get the swirlies out and then hand block at two twenty so use your random orbit to get most of the work done in and try to minimize the swirly marks but if you get those little squirrels you've got to send him out yet. Backup one grip. I've i've recently started doing christian beck's method of. I think come one fifty or so. He pulls the pat off the ran more but does a hand pass them one. Eighty four but paul's pat off does a hand pass is is even. If you're trying to clear the swirlies out okay. The other thing that can help is a lot of these. Random orbits now the new ones. The lyrics are adjustable. Speed variable-speed ara. Are you supposed to change that speed. I've never touch that knob. Where do you run at high on. Fast or slow. Whatever it's i have no idea. I've never thought about that. Phnom well if you put it now all the way fast you're going to remove a lot more material and you're gonna leave more swirly marks if you put it all away. Slow was gonna go. Roy moore and you're not gonna get good standing action. So somewhere in the middle is better and slower is better so i would say sand at the slowest speed. That's effective for what you're trying to do. Okay you will minimize the squirrelly marks if you said at full number ten You're not only gonna not gonna have as much control of what you're seeing but you're gonna leave more swirlies
Byzantine Fault Tolerant Consensus
"Everyone this is ted. I'm from cornell university. I'm finishing up my phd now my fifth year. I also worked part time at avalanches which is in our startup. i co-founded with adviser. Tell me a little bit about your phd work. What are your specific areas of interest. Yes so i think for the a democ- part you know as a phd. I mostly were distributed systems and that sounds like a very broad topic so more specifically within the systems i'm mostly focused on consensus and within the consensus topic. They are also different kinds of consensus protocol. I mostly focused on so called. Byzantine fault tolerant consensus protocols or t protocols. We are nowadays very hot topics. Pickus people are interested in blockchain technology and walk. Chang's need such kind of consensus in order to work. We'll definitely spend some time. Talking about blockchain byzantine fault. Tolerance is not as newest blockchain. So it's a i guess. An older theory. Could you help some of the listeners with the basics. What is bef t absolutely so. Yeah indeed. I think there has been like misconception. Many people think of b. f. Some kind of new stuff especially in that community even when we're talking about blockchain's but to me when i started my phd at cornell this of t kind of consensus as the coolest consensus at heard of at a time. And before actually dive into that world so what is not so byzantine fault. Tolerance has a weird name. So what is byzantine is. Sounds like the name of the old empire in l. a probably medieval or or some time period and the reason that this kind of protocol got his name as thanks to leslie lamport so may have heard of this research. His very well known ing Systems community clothing his works on taxes all sorts of consensus stuff. The also proposed the name for this new career of consoles protocols to be. Fd consists and beat byzantine just is part of the story if you read his paper about the whole consensus. So let's forget about the name of paying so what this protocol is usually about as maybe you are familiar with the phnom visiting kind of consensus or you know people usually call them crash fault tolerant protocols such as taxes or rafts so those protocols they work great and they're widely adopted by the current industry. Google uses passes as a core for cloud service and the reason that we need to another category of consensus protocol is because this kind of protocol a does not assume malicious behavior by the participating machines nose so that means than those can only crash build knows can only like human beings they can always say. Oh i die and then you just shut down or crashed without creating any noise into the channel into the network so then people begin to think about how we should handle the case where there some node. That could go crazy. Say i'm an node than when i don. I don't die peaceful eight. But i crave bunch of noises. The noise could be interfering the entire natural and even worse. I could be you know. Some zombie not controlled by the x. Turno attackers so i could exhibit arbitrary behaviour visit lab. I'm like a you know the insider send on by some other parties. So i'm like spying this system. So how do you handle this kind of situation in a protocol. While at the same time you still want to achieve the same goal as the noun byzantine one usually call them or crush full tolerant protocols we want to achieve the same goal but was different assumption
"phnom" Discussed on PodcastDetroit.com
"She was still see the girls because he would. Yeah so i have a question for your like. This question always comes up on twitter and because we are on the topic. I just felt like why not okay So do you feel like the media is like pushing quote unquote pushing homosexuality. Answered liked on twitter asks where it s like the main topic. Notice is issues a lot.

You know what i'm saying. It's everywhere every new. Tv show you will see same. You know what i'm saying here. And i think probably pushing it so people can't say like this is a norm thing now back then. Nosy was like a can't so much. Everything so i think they are pushing it so people can be like this is normal as norms for two women to be wives and wives and be is normal so they try to make a part of every day the everything and every day so i think that's the story behind him but adducing like hey.

This y'all probably gonna here beside us a lot in this episode You know so. I definitely think like you know. It is everywhere now for me like when i used to be. You know dealing with females. I never used to feel like you know. I want to be like so apart of like the regular community if that makes sense. Let's see why. I'm not accept. The i never felt that way guy could be. Because i'm a woman in phnom never had to endure to things that a gay man had to endure..
William Walley on how he started the "World of Walley" podcast
"William wiley I am Starbuck podcast world. Wally back around in january. First episode drought January twenty seventh of this year. The question most everybody either. Ask me when i first started our has asked me saying is oh says the pandemic you're looking. You have plenty of time on your hands so you want to start a podcast. Now is not the answer to that question. I actually had had the concept of starting a podcast for the last three or four years. ah just could find time either of job i had or some other obligation kept me from doing it so i had conceptualized the actual podcast theme and and to count what i wanna do for quite a while The sad thing was when i finally convinced myself to do it. let's see my in december of between the wake of christmas and new years. I had a birthday card. Fifty years old. And i thought that'd be perfect time starbuck guests with little fanfare and even less preparation which showed early in my in my efforts us for sure i started a podcast. My i i guess. It was around the fifth or sixth to january. I started looking into executive what it would take to actually start one. And then like i said january twenty seven drama first episode which was a tribute to. I'm green bay packer fan. And it actually was attributive source and an account of a i guess a revelation of a situation that i should have probably handled a little differently after i heard an interview that aaron. The starting quarterback of the green bay packers defeats with his girlfriend. Dan patrick on her gas. So i took that opportunity to craft an episode It's fond from Of national personal interaction. I had with rogers a few years back a certain job. I had a worked in phnom of them of security in staffing stuff. Like that and i was actually over a contract university of mississippi commonly referred to as ole miss. He just happened to show up on on an off week to see his brother who was Join rodgers was playing vanderbilt quarterback and he thought he was just go show up and be a regular fan and that didn't work out too well so i ended up having to make special arrangements farm. Get him away from her. By so the rest of the people could enjoy game. And he ended up on sidelining. He ended up in my office and him and his family for about an hour and a half after the hoopla game kind of died down and people started exiting the stadium. You know it's christmas for me. At depth point. I had an hour and twenty minutes. What a guy that. I've watched on television and using the word idolized in how to use. The term hero used the term hero when it comes to a sports stadium. I don't i don't wanna give him that much. Power heroes are big block Ponders and doctors and help help people and save last. That's heroes was christmas for me. I was thousand key He and i chatted. And if i would have had any idea where his mind was about some stuff that talked about podcast specifically talked about his issue With his faith and and he's got a question in his face and if i would've known that i could step in and you know maybe said something or are provided him information or are just been a good solid ear. Listen to and helped him with that but i had no idea that time. That's kind of the whole premise of that episode was reflection on. If i were null. And what. I heard him saying that podcast. Maybe i could set or done something to have been at moma. That was episode warning. It just took off from there.

What does South East Asia want from the US and China?
"Bland is director of South, East Asian program at the low institute and Longley to. She's a senior analyst at the Australian Strategic Policy Institute walk into your by. Ben How is the increasingly assertive use and indeed Australian position on China. How is that being interpreted in South East Asia. We have this is a very broad region of ten countries of different size from giants like Indonesia to minnows, like Brunei to have been diverse reactions, but broadly speaking I think there's a lot of frustration with the trump administration the way it's being on the one hand increasingly unilateral and unpredictable. But on the other hand, there's this fear of US abandonment if you like in a long-term leaving the region to. Gemini so I think we have to understand. It's a complex picture, right? So the US has to treaty allies in southeast, Asia Thailand, and the Philippines and they've been amongst the countries that are most China friendly and most frustrated with the US government in recent years be while we see a former. FO- like Vietnam there's being one of the most receptive of the US approach to. Try and run the loss years. So it's quite complicated I. Think the real risk here is that the US government and to a lesser extent that I'm camera believes that it's more assertive stance on China is appreciated in the region and I think that's really not necessarily the case because at the end of the day like Australia. But most South East Asian countries China is that biggest. Partner, as well as being geographic neighbor is that you're reading to Huang given the Vietnam of course has been just mentioned is a Cold War Foe of united, states but in in the face of verizon charts getting closer to Washington. Southeast Asian nations have gone through a different phases of. Living next to China, they've known China. Through historical engagements of this is not a new thing for them. The anxiety about China's and China's might end as you mentioned, they've gone through A. Competition to window call when they have still vivid memories of that. So in overall I think they they do have anxiety. There is a pronounced anxiety about the intensifying great-power competition that might. Lead to similar way of asking them to choose sides like was in the Cold War but I think all of them want to keep both China and us in the region a engaged. Also not too. Aggressive or not to assertive, and they also want to involve other. Powers not only the be the two big ones but also Japan Australia's are career and the European countries. A little bit of competition is good for them but took much competition can be nervous. Let's bring it to Indonesia Ben. There's your name subject at the end of last year Indonesia and China had a face off over the ownership of the Natuna islands which are in the southernmost part of the area of the South China Sea claimed by China. Where does Jakarta stand on China? Now it's an, it's an interesting question building a wall who was just talking about because we look at Indonesia's president. Jerko with widow known as Jacoby, I've just written the first English biography of him the plug in that. He he is an economy I president. He is someone who is above all interested in creating more jobs, getting more investment into Indonesia, and especially during a time of covid nineteen when the economy's really collapsed and Jacoby is a transactional leaders that he wants those who are bringing the most money with fewer conditions and right now that is China Chinese state-owned companies. Chinese. Private companies like qualify as well. On, the other hand of course, Jacoby has to be seen to be defending Indonesia's sovereignty and we have had these clashes over fishing rights. I have access to certain waters that you mentioned. So I think when those of come to head, Jacoby has made a symbolic stance. He's gone out to the tune of see visited the islands gone onto ability ship a symbolic declaration. He's going to defend Indonesia's sovereignty but by in laws you trying to stay away from these. Geopolitical issues to play down the tensions with China said of the economic relationship can keep developing. So it's a really difficult balance and I think there's also a shift that's potentially happening in Indonesia. So the old guard if you like in the Foreign Ministry and the government in the military, they really view above all other things strategic autonomy on non-alignment as being the key for Indonesia. So don't get into any alliances don't get too close to any one power but. There isn't new of God if you like coming through increasing, you think Indonesia needs to be a bit more active about engaging with potentially the US Australia, the Europeans Japanese to try and balance out the region. But for now are really think with Jacoby in the hot seat it's the economy I put the geopolitics aside at the end of the day that's a positive for China, but it's not an open and shut case because the had been long been tensions. Between Indonesia and China. So Jacoby like a lot of other leaders in the region, we'll have to find this delicate balance, but it's getting harder and harder and Huong Vietnam your nation. Let's talk about that. It's been pushing back against Chinese expansion in the South China Sea, which threatens Vietnam oil drilling and fisheries, and of course, it's had an ongoing dispute about water flows in me congresses where China has built dams stream at tell us more about Vietnam position on China. Is Getting nece position on on current China is also a frustrated I. Think at Phnom has gone grew proably among all in countries have had the longest history of interaction with China and most cases where it was trying to defend its own national sovereignty and resist China's expansionist tendencies. So it's been ingrained in Vietnamese National Psyche I would say current us of China Sea conflict to end disputes are only. One of the examples of that, but it is similarly with others opposition countries, which is it's harder and harder to seek more peaceful avenues of dispute because it is a strategy in the South China Sea is among others was to include the direct dialogue with China but that is not really much come to help these days with Chinese expansion expansionist tendencies. Now, you mentioned also on which is very important. Aspect in the relationship. Phnom is at any of the lower mccown and China, is a deal a top of the upper and it's projects of a building dams and not only in China, but a call goes invest in dance in now Cambodia Yaman and Thailand that blocks blocks the water flow blocks were flow of the river, which is very important for agricultural conditions in. Asia and it is called the bowl of rice for the region and the countries. Of course, they export rise agricultural produce and also Crohn's fish and stuff like that. So we've China's interference into ecological nature of the river that can potentially add cost a lot of income for the countries, but also with a backup climate change that can pose a certain at time. Security threat to the food safety and food security of the region. So it is quite a leverage that China can have on the lower countries including at Phnom follow question to Ben Bland. Given what you said earlier about the relatively nuanced in measured response of south. East. Asia towards the United. States if you like trying to ride two horses simultaneously. What happens if China's rise continues on, abide it and seeks to dominate the region and America as the acting regional hegemony on goes to great lengths to stop China from dominating is where do you think? Will be of Southeast Asia then it's it's really hard to say how things go election coming up in the US very soon, I think that could have a big impact on how how things go in the. Trump and pretty anti-china. There's really a difference in degree rather than just shooting Washington goes to great lengths to stop China what they. In, that scenario. All I think I think we're probably not GONNA get to a situation where South East Asian countries have to choose one side of such. But what they will have to do is face an increasing number of difficult small choices about what technology they use in their mobile networks about what military exercises that willing to do about what investment projects say yes or no To so life will get tougher and tougher for the region, but I don't think at the end of the day. Any of the countries will be willing to join an alliance either with the US or with China. So they're going to keep trying to find the space in the gaps in between to try and exploit competition for the best interest if you're looking at. The longer term picture I think there's ways the big affair of the US just turning back inwards and the ultimately that the trump presidency. The rise of trump is probably a symptom of the issues in the US which are gonNA lead to a turning inwards and maturing of the US as a power being less influential pretension in Asia and the rest of the world. So, it may not be a question of China in the US coming to a head but the US rhetoric increasing the US pretend you withdrawing from the region
Loving Ourselves Into Healing
"Stay in welcome. It feels really lovely to begin with that Nama stay as as many of you know anonymous day means I see the divine in you and in me in an all being shin what an amazing way to. To encounter ourselves in the world. You probably know that in the West instead of novice day the handshake that open hand showing on that you're not carrying a gun. It's such a it's such a big difference, and so this is one cultural appropriation that our world desperately needs this one of a sincere anonymous day. This is. Part two of a series of talks I'm not sure how many on radical love. Radical. Love is a love that that season cherishes the shape gruden each live. The way the sacred lives through us. And I thought, maybe I'd start with the perspective of young Human Caesar. Some. Comments on love by little people aged five through nine. Glenn Age seven says a fallen in loves anything like learning how to spell I. Don't WanNa do it. It takes too long. Manual age eight I, think you're supposed to get shot with an Arrow or something, but the rest of it is supposed to be so painful. Love is the most important thing in the world but baseball's pretty good too. That's Greg Aj. I'm in favor of love as long as it doesn't happen when dinosaurs is on television that's Gel h six. Love is foolish but I still might try sometime. That's floyd. Aged nine one more. To people promised to go through sickness and illness and disease together. That's Marlin Age Dan. There you're gonNA see a little bit the imprint of our culture on our sense of what love is and will probably stage of development to. Radical. Love is fully evolve in the first talk I that game on this really reflected radical love is as the expression of true spiritual awakening and also the grounds of meaningful social transformation. Many no, it's the heart of the civil rights movement of black lives matters. Really, of all movements that seek A. Compassionate world at the core of them is this love and reverence of live. So We in that I talk we reflected on the the barriers really what stops. And how to begin to deepen our attention. This talk I thought we'd continue by looking at. The primary layer of our barriers to love and it's really. Our reaction to the life we call self the live. That's right here. And as we know far from that that Phnom stay that honoring or. Cherishing the life right here were often in great resistance whether it's the form of neglect or judgment or hatred or shame, but we don't have. A very evolved and loving relationship with ourselves for the most part. So it feels really critical to look at this like how can we? Move towards more tenderness, more open heartedness with our own be. And the key understanding is. That you can't be down on yourself for war with yourself. and embrace the world because the life that's right here is part of the world. So. I thought I'd be gin with a story. Some of you at least will remember from way back at civil the teen Rabbit Marie little to you. Real isn't how you're made said the skin horse. It's a thing that happens to a child loves you for a long long time, not just to play with, but really loves you then you become real. Does. It hurt the rabbit. Sometimes said the skin horse for he was always truthful. When you're real, you don't mind being hurt. Does it happen all at once like being wound up he astor bit by bit. It doesn't happen all at once the skin horse you become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily or have sharp edges are have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time, you are real most of your hair's been loved off and your eyes drop out you get loose in the joints super shabby. But these things don't matter at all because once you're real, you can't be ugly. except. To people who don't understand.

We make this show we make it the intent to make black people smile. Make it as a way to celebrate our culture to feel a bit like an escape, but these moments we can't ignore them. There can be no culture to celebrate if we aren't allowed to cherish it. We were recording this on Thursday. May Twenty eighth, two thousand, nine hundred ninety five days since Ahmad, artery was murdered by two white men in Georgia. One of those men was a retired cop. Seventy six days since Brianna Taylor was gunned down in her own home by police in Louisville and just three days since George Floyd was brutally suffocated by Minneapolis police. Yesterday thousands of people took to the streets for a second night protesting and to draw national attention to their demands for justice on behalf of George Floyd and this is all in the midst of global pandemic and financial crisis, both of which are disproportionately affecting black people. There's no way to adequately verbalize the collective. Sorrow in anger we feel. But. We WanNA speak to this tragedy in the best way we can. So Brittany you know with everything happening in our day to day lives I just want to take some time and decompress with you. How are you feeling? Like I was already doing a lot of just emotional overhaul and management. -partment allies with Cova in itself. As you know many people close to me very close to me got pretty sick. Not Everybody made it. It's been hard. I think in general, sometimes, just trying to get in the mode of being entertaining as we need to for the show. Yeah, this time it's been really tough. I also have lost people. Close to me, yeah, I've been trying really hard. It's kind of like push through you know. Keep focusing like this is a temporary situation, and so with this week. Kind of being reminded of these things that put me in space of. No, this isn't temporary. There's this larger pattern and things that are kind of always at play. Just pushed me into a feeling like everything in Phnom at the same time I think that for a variety of reasons. We're. Experiencing, compounded trauma when you add. Witnessing these deaths of black people, all of that mental gymnastics, in addition to those of us who are still going outside to go to work or going to the store. It's maddening. It's a lot to carry, and you had at once. Social Media and kind of like all these digital tools and we have our disposal. Like some of the only spaces we have to be able to interact with our community. And so to have that exist as this place that is really triggering for a variety of reasons is hard, and it's like it leaves you. Are Uncertain of kind of where to turn, and it's feels especially tough, because like we can't be outside and feel safe, but we also aren't safe in our homes. Brianna Taylor was at home. I have not yet gone outside to run by myself. And I realized that it's likely because of what happened to Ahmad Barberie. Being able to go outside for a walk, run like one of the only ways that I could actually maintain. My mental health it having that tool kind of taken away from me is mentioning what your brain eventually becomes trained to protect you from, and I think that's really important to put in context, the degree of feeling and emotion that people are feeling who have in this moment still gone out to protest for justice I know for a fact that everyone out there is also thinking about how potentially dangerous that is, but to me, it feels like a testament to the sometimes hopelessness anger the rage, just all these emotions in the strength of them, and how much we've been feeling them the entire time. I also seen critique. Come about that. As! Women and Trans folks gender non conforming black. Folks have been killed. You know through state violence. They, haven't garnered the same volume turn outrage. Thinking a lot about like my wh hope means to me now, because frankly feeling extremely hopeless. We've had the do this before. We've done all of this before, but if there's anything that I do have hope for I hope in black folks capacity to love each other more and to really get behind the idea that all black lives matter it is affecting all of us. Some black people disproportionally, and we need to talk about that and we can only really do it if we're all using our voice.

Why China’s Move to Rein In Hong Kong Is Just the Start
"China's move to exert greater control over the semi independent city of Hong Kong caused more turmoil over the weekend does protesters to fide social distancing rules and clashed with police who fired tear gas and a water cannon arresting at least one hundred eighty people critics of. Beijing's move to impose a national security law on Hong Kong. Say that it is an attempt to stifle descent putting an end. The city's independence. The White House said yesterday that China will likely face sanctions for its actions in Hong Kong. So admiral the China is becoming more aggressive by day. Fairly remarkable if you look at it just in recent history that they are responsible for the unleashing of a pandemic that has wrecked the world. Economy killed So many people. We don't know where that death count is going to end up and instead of being back on their heels or working aggressively for a vaccine or are reaching out to the world community. They are actually Acting more aggressive whether it's toward Hong Kong toward Vietnam or even in the concentration camps inside their country what what is going on what. How is the United States failed in its response to Shave Power? And why in the world can we do moving forward? Let's start with the premise. Here let's go back to twenty one thousand nine hundred twenty nineteen teams like a long time ago. We already had a rich basket of disagreement. China South China Sea huge body of water. China claims it in its entirety. Five G. The network controversy as you mentioned the territorial disputes around the edges of the South China Sea with Vietnam the Philippines Taiwan additional pressure on them trade and tear disputes. So we have this very rich. Unfortunately basket of disagreement. Now you drop a nuclear bomb in the middle of that which is called Kobe. Nineteen irresponsibility of the regime in allowing that to get into the wild so to speak. And so you really have this witches brew of relationships and Newsflash. It's occurring during an election year in the United States in which the trump administration predictably is going to maximize the ability to use China. Like opinion OUGHTA and beat it for electoral advantage. So terrible fact pattern. At the moment I think the real question you nailed it show is. What do we do about it? And I'll tell you three things very quickly. I we need a strategy that means not just episodic responses but thinking about diplomacy economics military deterrence bringing that Inter Agency sensibility to the challenges of China. Secondly even more important. We need international coalition. That's all of our allies. In the Pacific and many Japan South Korea Australia New Zealand Malaysia Singapore Thailand be at Phnom Increasingly. We need to internationalize the response to China and that includes the response to co did in third and finally we need to recognize. We've got a bend this relationship with China. We've got to change the terms of it. But we don't want to break it. I E get ourselves stumbling into a Cold War. It's going to be complicated and from now to November is going to be a very difficult stretch water. Well as you talk about. Strategy the United States needs to develop a long-term strategy. We just need to start by having a coherent message to send to the Chinese. We've been so erotic if you look at the president's fawning praise of President Shea and of course we always talk about what he said on January twenty four th when he thanked president she for his transparency and all the great work China was doing. That was a bizarre tweet to send out at the time. This is also the same president. Who who saluted she for consolidating power in the past has more power than anybody since Chairman Mao in that country? But you have that fawning praise one moment Max moment you have a continuation of these erratic trade skirmishes where the president doesn't have an overall strategy and then follow that up with occasional master tweets and insults toward the people of China just because seems to be checking that off his list for the campaign. It's really hard to figure out where Donald Trump stands when it comes to China because any any attack of China any critique of China is usually followed up by the president talking about what a wonderful leader Person President Xi is exactly and reference our earlier conversation. What do you want leaders to do? You want them to bring order. Out of the chaos. He want them to have a plan. You want them to communicate in steady waves and what we don't want to do with China is treated like an on and off switch on the wall that we turn on. Oh we love China. Then we turn it off ups. We're going to get into a war with China. We've got a dial it in. It's like estate like the dimmer on the wall. In your dining room we have got to be able to have a coherent strategy. That is steady and finds balance not this jagged on and off. Switch all the time and again. I'll close on this Henry Kissinger said late last year that we were in the foothills of a Cold War I think we are continuing to ascend that mountain. It is a mistake for both nations. We need to confront where we must when the behavior warrants but we ought to try and find ways to cooperate where we can confront where we must cooperate where we can build a strategy Admiral Stavridis. Thank you very much for coming on this morning
Shake, rattle and swallow snake is on the menu
"Take your seat with the rest of the class and let's get right to today's topic by now you've probably recovered enough from Saint Patrick's Day to hear the truth. Saint Patrick did not drive snakes out of Ireland there were never any stakes in Ireland. Drive out you see. The weather is too cold for snakes and the water. They would have to swim through to get to Ireland's to Coal Ireland. Is the last place a snake would go on vacation. The Mediterranean would be nice. But that doesn't mean I won't take advantage of folklore therefore we're going to talk about eating snake now the first comet you'll have formulas hey stupid. Don't you know? Some snakes are poisonous. Then I'll give you a wicked little grin and tell you that you're wrong. This will annoy you but hear me out. Snakes her not poisonous their venomous. So chomping down on a snake won't hurt you but when it whips around and bite you best know where the nearest hospital is. It's the venom that's dangerous when it's injected into the skin. Heck you could swallow venom all day and it won't hurt you unless you have a cut in your mouth your best course of action before you get ready to have a delicious plate of Cobra stick cut its head off. A chance of being injected with venom has now dropped dramatically. Unless you pick up the head snakeheads have been known to reflexively by up to ninety minutes after being severed when you cut the head off. Let it fall into a bucket. Then stay away from it until the next morning and be careful not to prick your finger on a Fang now. There's this guy who likes to kill his snake biting its head off. It seems to me that he has some serious male insecurity issues. But I'll put a link to the video in the show notes. China consumes the greatest number of snakes. The most favored dishes snake soup. And it's considered a delicacy in the Cantonese region. It contains the meat of at least two types of snakes. The soup tastes slightly. Sweet because the addition of Chrysanthemum leaves and spices more. Modern recipes include pepper vinegar and thin wafers of fried dough to enrich flavour and texture. A bowl cost you around eight bucks and you should plan on getting a bowl soon as those who make the soup aren't finding many people who want to learn how to do it because it requires the handling of venomous snakes. If you're in Hong Kong look for the restaurant Snake King Law on Hillier Street. It's been making the stuff for more than one. Hundred Years Water. Snakes pythons typical stars of Snake Soup but Chinese Cobra banded crate Indochinese rat. Snakes try rope beauty snake and the hundred pace viper as popular as well in the. Us rattlesnake is most popular variety but with the proliferation of Pythons in Florida. You're likely to see that on the menu as well. Three and a half hours of snake meat will cost you ninety three calories which is half the calories in one third of the fat that are in a Sirloin steak. Those figures can vary depending upon the type of snake. Snakes like other animals may contain parasites and other infections that could be transmitted to humans they can be neutralized by proper handling freezing and thorough cooking as for the taste. And you probably already know the answer this. It tastes like chicken although some say frog legs or a better comparison rattlesnake in the US often battered and fried the New York Times called Desert Whitefish. The writer said it's tough full of little bones and not much meat. So it'd be no snake stakes for you. Now we're going to travel to be at Phnom where you can enjoy a live Cobra heart. When you're in Saigon grab a table at the jungle barbecue guavas weasel porcupine in other tasty treats when you arrive they take you to the back where you can select your very own snake after your appetizer. The snake will be brought to your table by two servers. Bearing large knives and a half full bottle of rice vodka since the snake is still alive to head comes off I. The Venom is drained into the bottle. Then the blood from the rest of the body is added. The Heart's still beating is placed on a saucer and offered to the most important person at the table. Censure from out of town the offer may well be yours proper manners dictate that you then drop the heart into the glass of blood and venom and down the hatchet goes. If you're quick enough you may even feel the beating heart. Go down your throat by now. No doubt your stomach rumbling. And you're ready for a snake. Snack in Nashville. The closest you'll come. Who'll be the snake bite at the

When it's not air venture be sure to check our social media on our website and our online newsletter for for future dates for this for the series so with that of course I guess I'll I'll kick it over to you to kind of ask what we usually ask for the introductory questions for our I guess one of my favorite questions ask because everybody has a story What I made you WanNa fly well for me? As a child growing up I was the child of a World War Two veteran. My Dad worked for a company in which there was is a retired Military Aviator who was the president and CEO of textile the organization being from the South and he was a big collector of military aircraft. And he he shared this collection with the people who work for his organization and so we as kids. We just climb all over a variety of military aircraft and been a little bit older than these other guys I Remember Korea Had Our tendency to visit the local airport just watching it but what the moment that really struck me was when I had my first Ryder t thirty. The three in the backseat. My time is that My choices were go through. ROTC in college or not go to college and be a grunt in the United States are going to be at Phnom and frankly when I went to field training between my sophomore junior year and had that first orientated applied on ever get get visit. Myrtle Beach Airforce Base took off on their forget we broke ground on a cloudy sky and that contrast to the ocean and the white sand. And I said Gosh. Gosh this is what I WANNA do. That was that moment that really struck out for me and I had a great again in front seat and that was that was a magic moment for me. That's awesome How about you Colonel Jill? We're like to point to say that my father who was in the military inspired mutation Taeb restrained to be AAA battery commander so that didn't feel bad but my mother was a navy wave during World War Two and it was a linked trainer operator and she brought with her the navy how to fly manuals and all the things that I just devoured in junior high and high school. I lived on a ranch in central Florida that was in the running line for the navy. Pine Castle air to ground range or GonNa rage and so I could be down there shoveling horse apples or whatever it is that at a ranch boy does it'd be threes and fours and four eight. Five eight vigilantes roaring overhead on looking up and Goya looks like a lot more fun than down here and I did a little investigation allegation and found out that the navy guys running aircraft carrier. And there's no women on carrier knows no beer on the carrier and that that launched launched me on a on a career near fourth. Although my dad wasn't an aviator was on the Coast Guard World War Two timeframe when I was young very young he took me to an EA gathering back when it was in Rockford. And I got my first flight in a gypsy. Moth Open Air. I don't remember eight or nine years old in it's kind of set a spark. My father was always aviation suzy's and then as I was getting into high school I just thought the flight fighters be like the greatest job in the world early in high school. Had I had a cousin that went to the Air Force Academy and I got to thinking I was also the oldest of seven children in the finances of going to college made made a huge difference if the government was sending me to college and I got a chance to be a pilot. Boy that'd be cool owes able to get into the Air Force Academy train their want to go to pilot training and it was just kind of always been my goal to head in that direction. I didn't necessarily have specific specific path but worked out and there. We have how that's awesome. That's really cool. You have an EA if you're early flight and that's pretty wild. It's grown a bit Rockford. We noticed it so we just heard your first experience in an airplane What about the what? What did you was the first plane? Overflowing well following pilot training. No now you just mean like as a kid but as I said in the t thirty three that's an awesome. I fly has an awesome and of course it there in that timeframe There was a program in. ROTC for juniors and sophomores to Get their pilot. License called the flight instruction program and I went through that and of course into the air force and on the pilot training but my first airplane eh operation and was the F. One hundred which kind of an interesting about that as a kid growing up I mentioned that my first flight and the t thirty three was There'll beach airforce. Base happened to be two three fifty four th wing air flying f one hundred's so as a kid. I got a lot of Hans and I never thought that I'd be one of those guys flying the F. One hundred it's an amazing airplane. Yes it is about you. My first light was in a was in a Tri Pacer and my I had a I had a friend in elementary school was interested in aviation as well and my brother and we saved our money and we parents take us out your fort and got a little introductory flight And the next one after that was on my way to the Air Force Academy Outta me. My Kademi lays officer now. This central Florida had a steer men and he put me up in the German to go flying and that open cockpit Pitt. Experience was quite a thrill that is pretty cool at the step up from a Tri Pacer. Quite a bit so we'll talk a little bit about how you guys transitioned into the F. One seventeen program And currently I guess we should start with you since you you were there for pretty early on to keep household about that yes and the late nineteen eighties. I received my backup of it in late late. Nineteen Eighty I was just finishing the eight and fighter weapons school and being reassigned their analysis to be the assistant operations officer in that unit. Something I'd really want to do for some time really looking forward to it but no sooner had I arrived in the squadron and I got a phone phone call from the gentleman I had never met before. who asked me if he could meet me a specific building a specific perfect room at a specific time in several weeks ahead? This guy's name was Bernard Bob Jackson Quite a character in his own right in On the predetermined date and time I arrived air knocks on the door. Door opens about an inch. And I hear this voice is. Are you whittling. I said Yes sir they let me see your ID card slip it through the door. Who knows what's going on the other side he's probably chuckling or whatever but invites me in and we have about three five minute interview that Everything he offered was great but not assured I took him up on his offer. And that's how I joined the unit and made a commitment At that time and two or three months later one of the first in whoops called the initial padres to show up. We didn't have a permanent place to stay. We had a couple of Single wide trailer on on the flight. Line at Nellis Air Force Base and I spent about four and a half five years With the unit I watched it go from obtaining are I eighty seven to become an seven unit the with the as our cover story story Doing Avionics testing and of course I was For whatever reason nothing unique about me because because there were several very talented and capable people in part of that initial Kadre but Colonel Jackson for whatever reason he did elected to Have may be the first operational pilot now. I've had two theories about that. The first is I was expendable. Yeah and so. If it didn't work out nothing was lost but and as it turned out That that was a very unique experience and then of course Being the first operational pilot help check out the next guy and so on and so forth and eventually we received airplanes wanted to time and we checked out people want at the time and by while the intent was by nineteen eighty two to have limited operational operational capability. We simply just didn't the airplanes fast enough because some challenges that they had faced in that process and well how to build it exactly and each airplane was very unique in his own right. What those first few coming up? Because there's a lessons learned very quickly. Adjustments were being made in the Production and June of eighty five rolled around I had basically Evolved into being the Training Squadron Commander and I left the unit about four or five assignments later in August of nineteen ninety. I showed back up on the doorstep So we we had come all the way back to band at one fifty and being the first operational pilot. That's the how we came about my bandit number

He spent two years flying around the world trying to line up factories five deliveries to get it right everything that could go on clothes from the new factories didn't fit right but i or the fabric wasn't what he expected. Many companies are now going through a similar process s. of trial and error as they look for alternatives to chinese factories in hopes of avoiding the president's tariffs the truth is that the trade war is a little bit of a wakeup call for many companies jerry matias vice president with bain and company consultants based in singapore.

Army who show, many people lost their lives in that the at Phnom were, it was a turning point in American history. It was a turning point in the CIs paramilitary armies.

So, I leave you with that thought, I'll open up for questions, and I really look forward to what you guys have to say, thank you so much. Jacob's surprise kill. You mentioned the ground branch and I was wondering looking at the cover. Do you address an air branch or mowing branch? Good question you have some information that not everyone in the room has there is so the CIs paramilitary capacity is called ground branch air brand maritime branch. And I wrote an entire book about Arab ranch without even knowing it without knowing that, that was, it was called, I wrote a book called area, fifty one, which is about the CIA as early spy plane programs out at area, fifty one, the U2. in the eight twelve ox cart, and I did not I interviewed seventy five men from the agency air force pilots, not knowing that it was called air branch. So these these the nomenclature behind all of this jealously guarded. I really look forward to the person who can write about maritime branch because I know of a few operations that are just stunning that were that were that took place in the water on the water. So to answer your question this book, really deals with ground branch, the guys on the ground. But, but there are other books to be written, and I look forward to reading them. Yes factor. So hard find parking boys. So the last few minutes, but saw in the paper, who are going to be here. And I wanna buy you can read, I was immediately taken back to the fact that. We're always in a court of law system where if I'm charged with a crime, I get my day in court, I get a lawyer, I'm medicine suppose, with us until proven guilty. But these people out loss.

I have to cater. I'm like, you must not realize like this is my company and I'm like wanna start initiative.

But they also have the if you are a veteran and you do qualify. And you are sure that I would bet and I would pick my team would pick. Well, I know you've got a great. Ethic.

And I'm like why not start a competitive program that makes people really want to hire whoever comes through. There's also I've always said this, and I believe Vietnam veterans get Oklahoma. They deserved. But they made sure that I did you know that we had a lot of guys at the hospital that volunteer. There will be a non really that.

"So we are talking about him being from Vietnam. And you are talking about how you respond whenever you see a Vietnam vet tell us about that. If I can give a hug to everybody who I've see have served in Vietnam war. I would I just love to be able to either pay for their meals secretly or put a handshake out as a thank you so much for serving in the war. There was a story that my wife, and I were involved with where this that was at a restaurant little deli. And he and his wife had already paid for the meal. So I went to a manager. And I said let me pay for his Bill. I'll give you the money back, whatever it was a double triple eight. So I give them cash. I said just please write on a note. Thank you so much for your service in the war. That's all you need to do. Of course manager was touched and we were sitting next to this couple. So the man's back was turned to us. But my wife, and I we could see his her face and the manager came by and gave them a little note and Larry to see the reaction on her face with tears streaming down is incredible. And that to me is what joy congrats. Food is all about I just wanted to be a secret because to me to me, it's an unknown and that thought of someone out there who's really appreciative. What they did years ago. Hopefully will resonate more more than just in that one minute or the one month, or whatever it is the continued to remember that people really are grateful for what they did. Jack is in Saint Petersburg, Florida. Jack, you're on with Thuan Dom in Larry. Thanks wary.

"Start your day with a win. So then she attached the clip. And signed it. Happy new year. Maggie, and y'all awesome. So I'm gonna play it. It's Admiral mcraven he is an Admiral in the navy. My husband actually long story short has worked for him in his career. And so I was like, whoa. That's so crazy. I've been to the skies house, but he gave the UT commencement speech. And here's what he had to say. I mean, the speech is really long, but I'm only gonna play this little clip for you about making your bed. So I hope you guys enjoy this as much as I did every morning, she'll training mine structures at the time Raleigh at Phnom veterans, which show of my barracks room. And the first thing they do inspect my bed. If did it, right? The corners square. The covers would be pulled tight the pillow center. Just under the headboard and the extra blanket folded neatly at the foot of the rack, it was a civil task mundane best, but every morning, we were required to make our bed to perfection seemed a little ridiculous at the time. Particularly in light of the fact. That we were Spiring to be real warriors tough battle hardened seals. But the wisdom of the simple act has been proven to me many times over if you make your bed every morning, you have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you a small since of pride, and it will encourage you to another task and another and another and by the end of the day that one task completed we'll have turned into mini task completed making your bed will also reinforce the fact that the little things in life matter if you can't do the little things, right? You'll never be able to do the big things. Right. And if by chance you have a miserable day, you will come home to a bed that has made. The you made. And a made bed gives you encourage -ment. The tomorrow will be better. So if you want to change the world start off by making your bed. Okay. I love that. So there we go. Now. I mean, I just loved it. I went from not snoozing to now making my bed every day to now, I'm once closer to changing the world, basically, I hope that you found that as awesome as I did. Because when I watched I was like, okay. This is powerful. I'm playing it for everybody. So stop snoozing and make your dang. Second. So it almost be wrong. If I started the new year and how to show and with this time of year gyms are packed everyone setting their resolutions trying to work out and be fit. So I brought Erin back in again. You're just here a couple of weeks ago. But again, Aaron someone that's going to be coming on quite a bit Aaron Oprah. And she is a personal trainer knows all the things about just keeping your body tight. And right. I don't know that you would even say that. But I just made it up. So there you go. That's your new thing keeping it tight. Right. But what what would you say when it comes to New Year's resolutions? And maybe some of your clients, or if you give advice to people, you know, 'cause the gym seriously is packed to the first week. And then the second week, there's less people, and then the third there's even less, and then it just totally dies off. Yeah. You come in January. Like, wow, this is great. So what why are we like that? I don't know one. We set these huge New Year's resolutions. Like I had to be in the gym one hour every day, and you're setting yourself up for failure. Because realistically, most people's time doesn't allow that. So as trying to set I think the goal should be to set realistic goals that are simple and things that you could actually do for a long period and not set yourself up for failure. Okay. So like, I'm going to do if you can't get to Jay if don't say I have to. An hour in every day because some people don't have an hour. So if you have thirty minutes fitted in where when and where you can the whole world your gym. So you could do thirty minutes at home. Call a good, you could do tomato workouts..
