Much of drought-plagued West Coast faces salmon fishing ban
"Much of the drought plagued West Coast is facing a salmon fishing ban. The Pacific fishery management council will soon consider three proposals that all call for the closure of the 2023 salmon season from Oregon to California. Probably a third of my income. It won't be available this year. Fisherman bob mahari is in San Francisco. This one ain't on us. This has nothing to do with overfishing. This is poor management. Of water. Experts fear California salmon are in a spiral toward extinction. Buyer Joe Conti says this is going to hurt. There is other seafood out there. Crab, there's different things that we can sell. But nothing matches local king salmon. I mean, that's what everybody wants. That's the big seller. A fisherman's group believes the salmon band may need to be in place for two or three years to bring back sustainable stocks after many fish died in 2020. I'm Ed Donahue

Veterans testify of 'catastrophic' impact of Afghan collapse
"A house panel has heard firsthand testimony from active service members and veterans on the chaotic U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan in August 2021. I'm Ben Thomas, with some of what they had to say. For millions of people in Afghanistan and the U.S. Aiden Gunderson served as an army medic during the evacuation, he says he's plagued by the memories. I see the faces of all the people we can not save all those that we left behind. The majority of witnesses argued blamed for the fall of Kabul touches every presidential administration from George W. Bush to Joe Biden, retired green beret, lieutenant colonel David Scott Mann. America is building a nasty reputation from multi generational systemic abandonment of our allies that we leave as smoldering human wreckage from the montagnards of Vietnam to the Kurds in Syria. Testimony focused not on the decision to withdraw, but on what witnesses described as a desperate attempt to rescue American citizens in Afghan allies with little planning and inadequate support. Tyler Vargas Andrews then a marine sergeant detailed the horror after suicide bombers attacked the crowds at Kabul airport. He now wears a prosthetic arm to withdraw was a catastrophe in my opinion. And there was an inexcusable lack of accountability and negligence and they implored Congress to help the allies left behind. Peter lucier is a marine veteran, now working with team America relief assisting Afghans in relocating. It's not too late. We're going to talk a lot today about all of the mistakes that were made leading up to that. But urgent action right now will save so many lives Ben Thomas, Washington.

"The Moral and Cultural Case for Teaching the Great American Story"
"I'm talking to Timothy gay line who has written an important book toward a more perfect union. The moral and cultural case for teaching the great American story. So Tim, you know, when we teach the great American story, this doesn't mean that we avoid the ugly parts. But of course, when you're talking to younger kids, it might not be the time to get into that because it's confusing. But of course, we all understand that when you're putting forth a narrative, you're going to leave some things in, you're going to, you know, but what I've noticed and have written about and spoken about a lot, which is why I get so excited about your book toward a more perfect union, is that we have amazing stories to tell. The stories of George Washington's heroism and courage and sacrifice. The stories of Paul Revere, story after story after story that generations of Americans were told, were taught and they themselves passed on that made us the nation who we are to overcome things. I always think of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow writing Paul Revere's ride on the cusp of the Civil War to call us back to who we were as a people to make sure that we understood that we fight these battles again and again in the Civil War of course a dramatic example of that. So what do you cover in your book toward a more perfect union? Well, I must say, I want to solidify Eric, what you have said so eloquently, because in the first part of Torah Moore perfect union, I jumped into pools and pools of empirical data. And I began to look at where and what was the cause of the historic and cultural illiteracy that has become a plague in our nation. You know, until about 1968, you could go to the public schools in places like New York and Chicago and Los Angeles and get a very good education. I have no doubt at all, not from my opinion, but from the data that Americans in those times graduating with a high school diploma knew the American story. They knew significant figures in western civilization. There never would have been any doubt if you, for instance, for a Californian that you knew who father Sarah was, the founder of California, of course he's been totally and completely erased in California.

"We'll see that more as we get towards the plague number 9. All right, let's move ahead a little bit. We've talked about the blood. We'll skip past the frogs and Elias, they accomplish largely the same point at its illustrated. Let's get forward to a plague that we can all relate to in south Mississippi. What play do you think that is? Whoever said flies, you get the bonus points. Flies. Let's look at chapter 8 versus 20 through 24. And the lord said to Moses, rise early in the morning and stand before pharaoh as he comes out to the water. See what's going on here. This is the first in this other cycle. Rise in the morning, stand before pharaohs it goes to the water, then say to him, thus saith the lord, let my people go that they may serve that they may worship me. Or else if you will not let my people go behold, I will send this form of flies on you and your servants on your people and into your houses. The house is an Egyptian shall be full of swarms of flies and also the ground in which they stand. And in that day I will set apart the land of ocean. In which my people dwell that no swarms of flies will be found there in order that you may know that I am the lord in the midst of the land. I will make a difference between my people and your people. Tomorrow, this sign shall be. And so the lord did so and thick swarms of flies came into the house of pharaoh into the servants houses into all the land of Egypt, the land was corrupted because of the swarms of flies. What was different in this plague than the previous ones, for those who've read these earlier chapters. On the first three plagues of God brought upon Egypt, you get a sense that all of Egypt, the land was affected in some way. Now, the Israelites lived in the land of Gaussian, which was away from the river Nile and may well have been away from some of the frogs and some of the other stuff. With that said, beginning with his fourth play, a flies, something changed in how it was announced. When God declares the plague, he says, all right, farron. He says, I see what's happening. I bring in the frogs and I bring in this other stuff, and you're dismissing that. You're saying this must be some natural explanation, right? And that's what would happen here. If there was a swarm of frogs in our community, our first reaction wouldn't be that God did something. We'd look to our scientists who would give us some scientific explanation for why frogs. If giant hail hit us in the next few days. Again, we probably wouldn't think God, that would not be our first reaction. We would think, well, boy, some odd meteorological event that surely has an explanation. Well, the people in the Egypt were doing the same thing. They were arguing with this stuff away. This is some freaking nature thing. Nature, I don't know. Once in a lifetime sort of thing, it's like the cicadas that come out every 18 years and frighten everybody. It's something rare. Well, farrow may have bought into that. And so God says, ah, Moses. We'll tell you what, tell you what. I'm going to send a plague now. And you just watch. When this play comes, guess who it's got a target. It's going to target your people. It's going to target you. It's going to target your servants. It's going to target the Egyptians. But my people, they're going to be free of it.

"And the fish went to the river died, the river stank, the Egyptians could not drink the water from the river. And so there was blood throughout all the land of Egypt. Then the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments, and at faras heart grew hard. And it did not heed them as lord had said, and the fair turned and went into his house. Neither was his heart moved by this. So all the Egyptians dug around the river for water to drink because they could not drink the water from the river and 7 days passed after lord had struck the river. All right. Before we explain these verses from this first plague, I want to remind us of something. As you may or may not recall and having studied exodus in the past, the first 9 plagues prior to the final one, prior to the Passover. The first 9 plagues follow a similar structure, a similar pattern. Specifically, the first 9 plagues, there are three sets of three, and each set of three starts and finishes the exact same way. Let me explain what I mean. The first plague, the first play in each set of three involves Moses going down to meet fair with the river. The first plague in each set of three across the three sets involves Moses going on to meet pharaoh, the river in the morning where pharaoh is doing what, as you just showering up for a good day of farrowing or something like that. No, is there to do what? To worship pagan gods. Pharaoh gets up to go and to commune with the lizard gods and the fish gods and the like. That's what he's doing. And that's where Moses meets him. In this location, at the first of each of these three sets. With that said, the second plague in each of these three sets involves Moses meeting pharaohs on his home turf and pharaoh's own courts or chambers so to speak. And then finally, the third plague in the three sets, it comes in its own good time. Comes in its own good time. There's no warning really given a fair on the plague just shows up. So this is 9 playing three sets each. They all repeat the cycle. Now, the plague was on verse 14. To start all this involved a water turning the blood. And that happens, again, at the moment, when pharaoh is worshiping the river gods. There was a beast called knue, KH and UM, who was considered to be the guardian of the Nile. The guardian of the Nile. Now, there are other river gods as well. If you had alligators, you had fish. There were all sorts of Egyptian gods that had jurisdiction for demands that it could be God's specific areas, specific creatures or what have you. Different kind of creepy deities that represented creepy creepy things on the earth. So Farrah goes to worship just these horrendous things, really, to commune with them. And as he's soaping up there, the God of Israel turns the Nile in a blood and kills all of its all this creatures. Now why that? Well, what he's doing with the blood. It's the same thing as when Aaron staff swallowed up the snakes from pharaoh's magicians. And Paul's case is what's been shown here is that pharaoh's false gods are no match for the God of heaven. If the God of heaven says, all right, so pharaohs you're there worshiping canoe, the guardian of the Nile, guarding the Nile. That sounds pretty impressive. You know, the guardian of the night. Well, let me show you something. Let's see how good he guards it because I'm gonna turn it to blood. You just watch. Boom. All of a sudden the water is turned to blood.

"And FPC Gulfport on YouTube. This morning we are going to study the ten plagues of Egypt, specifically. We're going to look at the ten plagues of God Santa's judgment upon pharaoh and his house due to pharaoh's oppression of God's people. Now, as I said at the outset this morning, God's people had been oppressed. They had been in bondage to pharaoh and to the Egyptians. They were made to do their labor, and the labor had gotten more difficult. When the people had cried out and God had sent Moses and Moses had stirred up some trouble with the people, pharaoh's reaction was aha. He says, if they got all this time to talk about going off and worshiping their God and they got all this time to have these discussions, well, then they'd have idle hands. I'm going to put them to further use. Pharaoh made life more difficult for them and he didn't care whether they liked it or not. Now, God had heard the cries of his people as they reacted under the boot of pharaoh and his response in part is what we're looking at today. The sending of these plagues. Now before we go any further with this Old Testament text, let me ask you a question. Can you think of, I don't know, any New Testament book in the Bible that also talks about plagues and judgment. Has any book come to mind? What do you got? Revelation. Revelation. I'm glad I once said finally or anything like that. Revelation, yes, revelation has plagues, revelation has much of the things we see in today's text. Revelation has blood. It has flies. It has locus. It has hail has death. In revelation, we see very similar judgments against very wicked people. Wicked people in the future who will persecute God's people just as they did in the past here in the book of exodus. Now in that future time, whenever it should be, and revelation 6 before the trumpets and balls and seals really all get poured out on the nations. We read this. We read in the persecution. Revelation 6, I saw under the altar, the souls of those who have been slain because of the word of God and the testimony they had maintained. They called out and allowed voice, cried out much as they did in exodus. How long sovereign lord, wholly untrue until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood, very similar crowd what was going on and the book of exodus. Then each of them was given a white robe, but they were told to wait a little longer until the full number of their fellow servants or brothers and sisters were killed just as they had been.

Corruption endangers world's shrinking fisheries
"The conviction of an Indonesian fisheries minister is emblematic of a global problem corruption that's undermining efforts to prevent overfishing, amid a growing worldwide demand for seafood, experts say corruption plagues dozens of developing countries that manage some of the world's most threatened fishing grounds, a review by The Associated Press finds that in the last two decades, at least 45 government officials around the world have been accused of graft or extortion from high ranking officials excepting large payments from fishing companies to low level civil servants taking a payoff to ignore illegal catch in Indonesia where over fishing has decimated the lobster population, court documents show that after taking office in 2020, the country's new fisheries minister lifted a ban on prohibiting the export of hatchlings, which were being scooped up by the thousands and shipped a Vietnamese lobster farms, just a month later he accepted a bribe from a seafood supplier to grant a hatchling export permit, policy experts with the world wildlife fund, say fisheries corruption can have a devastating impact on marine ecosystems and the local communities that may depend on them.

Are You Going to Watch Biden's SOTU Speech?
"I asked you, are you going to watch? Are you going to watch tomorrow night, the big State of the Union? Joe Biden looking to do some kind of weird victory lap. He did get a good jobs report the other day, but as I've said, and I'll continue to say, I just don't buy it. I believe we're heading towards stagflation. And I don't think that he's going to be able to fix it. The fed is not going to be able to fix it. And you're going to see the pain eventually in the markets. But anyway, he had this whole speech planned, right? And then this balloon thing happened. And he tried to hide it. He wanted to hide it. We have reports now coming from the not exactly conservative New York Times saying that there was an effort to just downplay it all. We also are getting mixed reports from unknown intelligence sources in the media saying, oh, this has happened before. Yeah, this is like the totally normal. Apparently it happened off the coast of Hawaii before and this is just par for the course. The Trump administration intelligence officials are coming out and saying absolutely not no way this never happened. So there's a little bit of a dispute going back and forth on that. You know which side the media is on. So they're trying to also downplay this saying really no big deal. I think it's kind of a big deal. And I think the American public think it's a big deal. So I think as such, Joe Biden would be extraordinarily disrespectful to all of us if he just didn't address it. I don't think he cares about being disrespectful, per se, but he does know he's going to have to address this. There are lots of questions. So I would imagine the entire section on our international relations China, Russia, Ukraine, everything that's going on is likely being rewritten as we speak.

Joe Biden Seems to Think He's "Curing Inflation"
"May see some market trepidation this week. I would expect it by the way I am not exactly what you would call a bull in this sort of economy, even though some people are like, oh, you know, it's great. Inflation is coming down. You know what? It's not. It's not coming down fast enough. We got the consumer personal expenditure index, which I don't even think is the right way to be looking at inflation. I really don't. There's some idiosyncrasies about it that would not make it my favorite metric if I were on the Federal Reserve board of governors to be looking at, but nonetheless, this is a thing that they watch, and it's at 5%, so they're like, oh, that's great. Well, let me just say, again, because it's not my favorite metric. If you were to actually look at this on an apples to apples basis and you went back to the early 1980s, when Paul Volcker had to raise rates so aggressively in order to contain inflation, what you would actually find is that we're much closer to roughly 14 percent. Inflation just like we were back then. And guess what else? We got all kinds of international problems. I mean, the balloon thing, this is a whole other level stuff, but nonetheless, back then, we had the Middle East crisis, and so as a result of that, you had escalating oil prices, which we have a little love today. We also have escalating food prices, leading us very much into a stagflationary style in environments. So be prepared Tuesday Tuesday night, we're going to hear from the president of the United States who's going to tell us, oh, everything's great. I mean, he actually is either stupid enough or delusional enough or deceptive enough to have sat there with a straight face on Friday and have said this about inflation. For any blame for inflation. Should you just the president? By taking blame inflation, no. Why not? Because it was already there when I got here, man. Remember what the economy was like when I got here? Jobs were hemorrhaging. Inflation was rising. We weren't manufacturing a damn thing here. We were in real economic difficulty. That's why I don't. Thank you. Okay, I just need to set the record straight on that. They're really irritates me. When people just so blatantly lie about things like the economy where we actually have metrics that we can go back and look at, including, of course, inflation. 1.4% inflation. That's what we had when Joe Biden came to office. But then he added his third stimulus check. I mean, we'd already had two from the federal government. I warned it was too many. Tuesday stimulus checks. Plus all that the Federal Reserve was doing, we certainly didn't need a third one, plus more money printing from the Federal Reserve. It was absolutely absurd.

New Questions Plague Biden Amid Chinese Spy Balloon Disaster
"Not only that balloon that we shot down out there on the coast, but there's another one. In our hemisphere apparently floating over Venezuela and Colombia, the Chinese who want you to believe that somehow this is just some civilian weather surveillance operation, the Chinese are so lacking in creativity that they can't even come up with a decent excuse when you got a couple of these balloons hanging out in the western hemisphere, and Obama's former director of national intelligence James clapper, the same guy that was out pedaling the now infamous, totally disproven dossier, James clapper was on CNN saying he believed China. I mean, moronic, listen. I'm kind of inclined to believe the Chinese that this thing is errant and wandered off course. Wow. Well, I'm just glad you're not director of national intelligence anymore, not that I can say the team Biden is doing any better. The fact that he said that speaks volumes about the lengths to which the Democrats will go to try to manipulate things to help them. He didn't want Joe Biden to look bad. Joe Biden didn't want to look bad. He tried to hide this thing from us. He thought he could until people started spotting it in the sky in Montana, so it shows you they will just lie and lie and lie, so as to protect their own political behinds. What the heck went down here. And why is it that it was able, the balloon that is, to last for 8 days, why did they wait until it was over the Atlantic Ocean to shoot it down? Did they worry, for example, that there could have been some kind of bio weapon inside? I mean, why wouldn't you have just shot it down? And

"plague" Discussed on The Bible Project
"A real tension. Yeah. Yeah, totally. Oh, this bothers me. It's politics. Well, and so we're bringing it up though because it's about the first part. It's about the first born. Yeah. And so what's bothering us is that God would hold a child responsible for the actions of their parents. An infant even. Yeah, totally. It's not like. The smell like a 16 year old boy is the most vulnerable. And innocent. Yeah. The one who has done no good or evil. But putting that to the side for a second, which feels wrong. But if we want to think about it in compartmental. No, that's right. Tristan says I'm good at compartmentalizing. The theme of the first born, which is interesting here, which is saying, hey, you find your strength and your power in your first born status. And in your first born sons, who are going to be the ones you pass on your stats. The next pharaoh. Exactly right. Not only next pharaoh, but then also just the next patriarch of the Klan of the people who live in Egypt and the suburbs or whatever. And actually, let me just add one more layer because for me, this is the thing where my mind goes as to some kind of resolution is in Egyptian religion and culture, pharaoh is God. Pharaoh is the incarnation of their most powerful deity. Different than being the image of God and the Hebrew Bible. He is the incarnation of incarnation. That's right. And so it's not insignificant that in 12, check this out. This is within the instructions about Passover. Yahweh says in exodus 1212, I will go through the land. That night, the night pass over, I will strike down the first born in the land of Egypt, both human and animal, and against all of the elohim of Egypt. I will bring my justice. I am yahweh. So somehow pass over is a strike against the elohim of Egypt, also. Which seems odd to us. It's like, well, okay, the humans and the animals, and then the other him. But they're all one. In this narrative, taking down the first born of Egypt is taking down the eleme in some way. Yes. That's what X is 1212, clearly implies. Yeah, there's a spiritual rebellion that is getting intertwined in the power structure of this human empire. Yes. And by God dealing with the power structure of that human empire is actually dealing with the spiritual evil. Yes, just like in the flood. In other words, save dynamic is in the flood. It's about this illicit mutant merging of elohim and human to create monstrous human violence and evil in the world. And that's precisely what is happening in that strange sun about the sons of elohim and the daughters of Adam in genesis. 6 one three four that's like the last part of the rebellion that leads to the flood. In other words, this is the melody replaying. So within the X that is narrative, God striking the first born of Egypt is God striking at the human divine rebellion that has combined in Egypt. I think that's how the logic of the story works. And part of the plague of the first born is kind of a way of God saying, look, I'm attacking the very center and heart of your misunderstanding of power. Yes. Yeah, it's good. And not only am I going to attack it, but I'm going to give you a way out. Which is to align with a new type of power which is saying, you see this immigrant population that you think you can just abuse, that's my first born. That's my firstborn. Yeah. And in my economy, it works completely different. You can get on board with that economy, and you actually will find power and blessing. You'll get the blessing too. Or you can just run with the way you want to do it, which is giving it to your first born. And actually, I'm going to just disrupt that at its source. I'm just going to stop it. That's right. In a pretty violent and disturbing way, which feels just as violent and disturbing as God's saying, I'm just going to stop human violence on the earth in genesis 6. That's right. And so you're saying there's something happening here where the volumes turned up where often in the Bible gods described as patient. Slow to anger. And he's dealing in a way so that people have time to come to him. But then there's these moments. The creation moment. And here in exodus with the tenth plague, where it's just like the same as sodom and gomorrah saw them gamora. Yeah. It's just, I'm stopping it. Yeah. And so these are moments back to the flood narrative. God accelerates a process that humans have already begun. In building a culture that's become so monstrous in its neglect of human life and value, it's reached the point of no return. And that's these flood like decrease in moments. And this is why the ten plagues are riddled with vocabulary from the flood narrative. It's uncanny. In other words, the words used to describe the waters of the flood and what they do and what happens. It's all the same vocabulary used. Over and over again throughout the plagues.

"Very prosaic kind of naive question, but it really plagues me every time I hear this latest scandal of a Republican being thrown to the dogs and then a Democrat walking away like that recent case of sussman who should we have the text messages, he lied, he purged himself. He should have gone to jail and what have you. So my question is this, how does it work in practice? In Delaware, you said, for example, they've been sitting on this Hunter Biden case. Does the local U.S. attorney say don't do that? But put that put that file in the shredder. We're not going after him. Oh, but Devin Nunes, chief investigator yet, throw the book at him, subpoena him. Is there no paper? Is this all done with a wink and a nod and a funny handshake? Because there has to be so much evidence at this point in the corruption. Am I dreaming? No, what's happened is there's been an incredible sea change in the ethical environment inside the Department of Justice and the U.S. attorney's offices around the country. It's all ideological. They've gone far to the left, and they've justified all sorts of unethical, unprofessional conduct, and they've targeted people that they disagree with politically. It's been a complete abuse of the process. And what's most sad about it, however, is that the federal judges have gone along with it. Very few of them have stood up and said, I don't like this. I don't understand why this is happening. I don't trust you. It's just amazing. Including many Trump appointees on the federal bench who've not done their job. I am extremely disappointed in the federal bench. One of the best or maybe I should say worst examples is the D.C. bench that in January that well, that's what I'm talking about. They're all the January 6th judges. That's

Debris began to take the fence of our enclosure down and just bring in mud, trees and everything and destroy it. And we lost it. All of we lost our home and all of our belongings. Governor Gavin Newsom says at least 17 people have died from the storms. We've had less people die in the last two years, a major wildfires in California that have died since New Year's Day related to this weather in California. These conditions are serious and they're deadly. Millions remain under flood warnings and thousands have been ordered to evacuate homes and towns with histories of mudslides. Hundreds of thousands without power in forecasts show another storm system lining up to wallop California this weekend. We expect these storms to continue at least through the 18th of this month. We expect a minimum three more of these atmospheric rivers and different shapes and forms depending on different parts of the state. The magnitude of this is not isolated in smaller communities. It is scaled across the largest state in our union. Howard Berman and fountain grove has been cleaning the mud from its garage, but he's ready for more.

"10 a.m. Sunday January 1st, 2023. Decentral and mana sheds 90 in 2022 despite solid NFT volume performance. Decentral and mana, the cryptocurrency launched in 2020 by aerial malek and Esteban or Dano, failed to take advantage of some of the positive developments that happened within its ecosystem this year as it closes 2022 in a beaten state. Over the last 12 months, the digital coin has shed 91 of its value, failing to recover from the massive price dumps it experienced triggered by the a series of unfortunate events that plagued the crypto space and the growing uncertainty in the market.

Boil water order issued in Mississippi capital amid freeze
"A boil water order has been issued in Mississippi's capital. It's the latest problem to plague residents there when it comes to an ever growing water crisis. City officials in Jackson, Mississippi on Christmas told residents to boil their drinking water due to water lines bursting in the frigid temperatures and urged residents, businesses and churches to check for leaks and broken pipes as these only worsen the problem they say, the city says crews are making repairs, but it has not provided an estimate of how long the disruption might last. The burst pipes come months after the water system in Jackson partially collapsed over the summer after flooding exacerbated long-standing problems in one of the two water treatment plants.

"Carry it all around and as it lands on people's skin, it will erupt into boils and leave creative now. I think one of the key things here is the word, the boils are on human and beast. The word boil is Hebrew word snake backwards. And that wouldn't have struck me as significant until a few years ago I realized that that happens all over the place. Word play is in spelling words backwards and forwards and scrambling letters is like a main literary technique of the biblical authors. And so what's the word? Instead of knocking. It's an anagram. Yeah. Yeah, backwards and forwards. The 7th, plague is the hail, hailstones. This is a long one. Yeah, you said the third of the 30%. Is a longie. So the 7th isn't the third then. It's the beginning of the third trial. The beginning of the third triad. That's right. Plagues one, four, and 7, each began a triad. So 7, 8, 9. Yep. So you get the phrase, you know? I'm going to send another strike. So that you will know. Oh, it's a variation on our theme phrase, which is typically y'all will know that I'm yahweh. The hail plague begins with saying so that you will know that there is no one like me and all the land. So weird. We're ramping things up here. Yeah. And so the hail is about sending stones from the sky. Oh, dude, I was driving home from mount hood yesterday. Which is about an hour and a half east of Portland. And it was the most intense storm I've ever driven through. Right around sandy, Oregon. Big pieces. Huge. As big as I have ever seen Oregon, I've seen bigger and Wisconsin. Like, your stories of dime size that put dents in cars, but your stories are like softball sized pale. Yeah, it can get even more intense. But this was more like BB pellet. Driving through it, it's even more intense. But it was just the amount and intensity of it. So loud. I was with my family in the car and we couldn't hear each other. Talk to each other. We had to yell. Anyway, it was pretty exciting. So hey, but man, just think if you don't have a framework for what that is, just the fact that sometimes clouds will come and they look like they're going to drop rain, but instead they drop ice rocks. They're shooting ice water. That's terrorist terrifying stuff, man. Yeah. So is there a connection to decrease?.

"Them, they get in my nose and my mouth. And all of a sudden, I've got like three Nats and my mouth and two up my nose. That's a type of net. Nats could be all sorts of things. They include flies and mosquitos. How interesting. Okay. Well, I mean, according to kids health dot org. What came up when you Googled that? Yeah, I Googled do not bite. Okay, got it. By the point is they're just really tiny flying insects. That's Wikipedia. And that is one of many species of tiny flying insects. Some sort of tiny flying insect. Yeah, that's right. Now, is it significant that it came from the dust? Of course it is. Yes, it is. So he strikes the dust of the land and what we're told is that the dust of the land becomes Nats on the humans. The humans were made from the dusty Brown. It's exactly the language used. Humans from the dust of the land. So there's a bit of a reversal but kind of a twist. Yeah. And the idea that God created you from the dust. Now he's covering you with something annoying from the dust. Yeah, the dust is the main biblical motif for mortality. Returning to the dust. And so here are the dust is like. Oh, the mortality. The death is coming out of the ground and covering you. Yeah. Wow. Yeah. It's kind of gross. It's almost zombie like, but not like humanoid zombies. Yeah. It's kind of like the slime. Man, you know what? I remember the first sci-fi horror movie I ever saw. I was at my grandma's house. And I must have been young. I'm 6 or 7. It was just called either the green slime. I think it was just called the green slime. Dude, terrified? Yeah, 1968, the green slime. Did that movie filled my imagination for? I mean, disproportionate amount of years, like well into my tween years. I was thinking about the green slide. Wow. Yeah, it was a sci-fi thriller, a group of scientists, unknowingly bring back a strange green substance that threatens to take over the place. This is the kind of movie mystery science theater like watches and it makes fun of. It is, that's exactly what it is. I really should watch it. I bet it would redeem the giant asteroid heading to earth. Astronauts disembarked to blow it up, their successful, but they bring the green substance. It's rated G really? Anyhow, why am I thinking about this? Oh, yeah, the nets. Then that's are like the green slime. They're the dust of the earth coming alive. And then trying to cover you and drag you back into it. There you go. That's it. So next, plague number four is the flies and what we're told about the flies is they will come up out of the ground and they will fill the land. And so the idea of blessing in genesis one is about filling and multiplying. Flies to fill and multiply is kind of like the opposite of life. It's like flies like to decompose things. Yeah, totally. That's their job. Yeah. Yeah, they hang out on decomposing things, especially manure piles, and carcasses. Lovely. Yeah. And they, yeah, and they feel they fill the land. With death. Yeah, so this mirrors the be fruitful and multiply and fill the land. Which is about life and what you're saying is flies are often hanging around death, and there are what filling the land. The other thing that happens with the plague of the flies is God makes a distinction. This is the first one where God makes a separation. So God separated between my people and your people. And so there will be no swarming flies in the land of goshen, where Israel is hanging out, but there will be many. Flies. So there's this separation of Israel and Egypt. Let's play number four. Plague number 5 is an actual plague, like a disease that comes on the livestock of the land, and so in the plague on the livestock. Oh yeah, this is interesting. So in the plagues on the livestock, God says he's going to make a distinction between the herds of Israel and between the herds of Egypt and he will set in a pointed time. Yeah, the pointed time. For this to happen, it's the word moed. Yeah. This is echoing when God separated between light and dark on day one. But then he handed over the responsibility of separating to the lights and they become signs of the appointed time and that they separate. So at least at this one, for example, I don't think the parallel is between Egypt and Israel and the lights above, but this is the language of creation of God separating and appointing times. But here it's to bring death instead of life on Egypt. Plague number 5 plague number 6 is about the boils. So here he is to go to an oven, Moses is to go to an oven and get a whole bunch of soot. Like sooty dust and then throw it up into the skies. And then the wind will carry it all around and as it lands on people's skin, it will erupt into boils and leave creative now..

"The livestock and the locust. These all take place with Moses going to meet pharaoh in his house. So each one of them is Moses going to pharaoh, not out by the shore. One four and 7. Plagues two 5 and 8 is all Moses going into pharaoh's house. And they're demanding that the people be let go. Then the third in each triad plays three 6 and 9, which is Nats, boils, and darkness. There's no warning. We're not told of when, how or where, Moses went to Ferris because normally Moses comes and says, hey, you're going to get another one. Here's a chance to let us go. Totally. And this, the third strike of each triad. There's no warning. There's no warning. It's just, hey, you aren't letting my people go. Boom, here I'm going to do this. And the plague comes without any lead up time. So that's interesting. Just right there. There are also hyperlinks and design features that knit each of the three together, plagues one, two, and three. As units. Are all a little unit that take place near the Nile, plagues four, 5, and 6 are all bound together, plague 7, 8, and 9 are really long. And every one of them has a line that says, when the hail comes, it says, hail will fall like no hail has ever fallen before and no one has seen it and no one will ever see anything like it again. When the locusts come, there will be more locusts, more than anyone has ever seen before, and no one will ever see you that many again. And then with the darkness, it was that the Egyptians could not see. While the Israelites could see in the darkness. So the first two, the hail and the locust where no one has ever seen. Anything like this? Yeah. And then the 9th plague is and the Egyptians just straight up couldn't see. Couldn't see anything at all. So it's kind of a funny little answer. It's kind of like the ramps it up to. It ramps it up. Yeah, exactly. So there are actually lots of other things here. But they're all, they're all united, and the phrase, this was actually something that Carissa, on our team, our scholar team pointed out to me was that in the ten plagues, chapters from the first plague on through the tenth, the phrase you will know that I am yahweh appears. Wait for it. How many times? 7 times. So once the plague starts, there are 7 announcements that this is happening so that Faro will know that I'm yahweh or Egypt will know that I'm yahweh. Or the Israelites shall know that I'm yahweh. So that also creates a nice cohesion through these as well. So the main takeaway is, well, I don't know. You tell me. Well, with that last one, that the authors would make sure that there's 7 times that the phrase you will know I'm yahweh in this section seems to mean that they think that pattern, that theme of knowing the name is kind of ultimate importance in this section. Yeah, that's right. 7 symbolizes kind of completion. A moment of, yeah, a complete statement of something. Yeah. So to do it 7 times to say really pay attention to this idea. Yeah. Just to recall the 7 day symbolism begins in the first Dorian the Hebrew Bible with the 7 day creation story. And the word 7 is spelled with the same. Hebrew letters as the word to be filled up complete so things repeating and numbers of 7 is a statement of wholeness or completeness or climactic importance, something like that. Yeah, yeah, that's right. And all of this symmetry and ordering of the templates or the three sets of three plus one. One, it kind of just helps you maybe remember them and the significance of them. Actually, that's a big part of it. It's a huge part of it. The literary design of biblical literature, a big part of it is aimed at helping you both memorize it, eat more easily. Once you see it structure, and then it helps you recite it in your mind as you meditate on it. Yeah, I'm already starting to be able to categorize it in my mind a little bit better than before. It's just hard to remember. Totally. The ten, you know. Yeah, crazy making. That happened. And the one takeaway is that each set of three begins in the morning, like day one of creating. Yeah. And the first set of three. Sorry, the first triad, not only starts in the morning, but it happens at the Nile River. And all three happened at the Nile River. And starting at the Nile River, the showdown with pharaoh at the Nile River. It's really important like we just said. This is where he did his act of just cruel and justice. And murder. And then that last set of three is like the fact that there's no warning. And the volumes turned up. There's something probably to meditate on there too. Yeah, yeah. So yeah, lots of cool stuff going on. But let's go through them because I want you to show me how each of these are connected to the creation and any other kind of cool things that you want to bring out. Yep, deal..

"Used in the stories to talk about what God is doing, what these ten things are. And so sometimes called a plagues and that's translating a word used in the story from the Hebrew word nag, which means to hit or to strike. There's another word that spelled with real similar letters pronounced naga instead of Nagar that strike and naga means to touch, but also convince a touch intensely. So also to strike. And then also these acts are called either signs or wonders. Symbolic acts of power that point to the greater power of the one who can do such signs and wonders that kind of thing. But the word plagues has been the one that has kind of stuck throughout at least in our English speaking kind of traditions. And plague refers to a disease in my mind. Most often yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And only one of the ten plagues is a disease. I guess you're right. Exclusively, do we say plague when we mean disease? Disease, yeah. So I've thought of other things to call these like the ten strikes or the ten acts of the creation or something. But it's just worth noticing the word plague, technically only refers to one of the ten. All of them. So the ten, the ten strikes. So the story begins with after Aaron and Moses went to pharaoh and Farrell said, I don't acknowledge yahweh, and then in chapter 5 and 6, pharaoh turned up the intensity of the slavery on Israel. More bricks, less straw to make the bricks. So Moses and Aaron go back to yahweh, and now it says, I told you this was gonna get intense and it's about to get more so. About to open up a can. So go back to pharaoh and tell him, again, let my people go. And so that's where we pick up in exodus chapter 7. This is where we concluded our last conversation. Moses and Aaron go back to pharaoh and they say, let the people go and Faro says, nope. And so you always says, listen, I'm about to stretch out my hand against Egypt and the Egyptians will come to recognize, to acknowledge that I am yahweh. So here we begin the ten plagues. So what's interesting about the ten plagues is their structured in a really highly designed way in terms of their literary design. There's ten total. But those ten are divided up into three groups of three, making 9. And then the tenth and final one is kind of set apart from those three groups of three. Okay. So in order, they are famously blood, the Nile turns to blood. Number one. Number one. Number two, frogs come up out of the Nile and crawl into everybody's houses and nasty. Number three are naps. Come fly and cover everything. Fourth, flies come and fill the cover everything. 5th is plague, like an actual disease. The 6th is like boils, actually like skin boils. The 7th is hailstones, fall and destroy all the crops. 8th is locust come and eat everything that the hail didn't destroy. And then the 9th is darkness over the land. And then that sets you up for the tenth, which is the death of the first born, and that links all the way back to the death of the first born sons of Israel. Feral long ago began back in chapter one. Farrah was tossing the boys in the river. Yeah, that's right. So those are the ten. And what's interesting is that I feel like we need like the ten days of Christmas song or something to remember these tendons. That would be great. I'm sure some of these done it. What's number four? Number four is the flies. Four buzzing flies, three, three terrible Nats. Two leaping frogs. And the Nile full of icky blood. Something like that. Something like that. Yeah, okay. All right, I'm feeling it. Okay, so the first 9 plagues come at a pretty fast pace. And then the tenth one is, as I said, set apart. The tenth one has three whole long chapters dedicated to it. Whereas the first 9 get anywhere from a third of a chapter to a quarter chapter kind of thing. But we're talking about exodus chapter 7 through ten. Are the plagues. So here's what's fascinating. If you start studying patterns of repeated words, you'll see that, just like the 6 days of genesis, or organized, every time I just chapter one, God creates order in 6 days. In the 7 day creation narrative that goes from genesis one versus one to genesis two versus three. That narrative has 6 days of God working. And the arrangement of those 6 days is a super intentional and we've talked about that at length. But the organization of them into triads, two groups of three, and then the things match and symmetry is going forward. There is an identical design to these 9 plagues. But there's three groups of three. There's three triads. So it goes the blood, the frogs, the nets. Let's try add one. The fly is the plague, the boils. Let's try two, the hail, the locust, the darkness. Let's try three. And I can't make this stuff up. There are symmetrically repeating phrases that link these together. Both sideways. And vertically vertically. If you put them in a grid, if you put them in a grid, that's right. For example, the three triads, the first one of each triad happens in the morning. So each triad begins with a plague in the morning. In the morning. Exactly. The plague of blood, the plague of the flies, the plague of the hail, that is plagues one four and 7. All have a little moment where they are introduced with a narrative saying, and God said to Moses in the morning. And then all of them take place where pharaoh is going out to the river or to the waters. And Moses is told to go meet pharaoh by the waters. And it's only in the morning. And it's only plagues, one, four, and 7. So it's very conspicuous. Very clearly kind of marking out. We're starting a new set of plagues. Yep, that's right. So it divides. Does that act right there? Divides the 9. And what a wonderful place to show down with pharaoh at the Nile. Exactly. The first plague will take place at the Nile with blood, but also its circles back to what pharaoh did with the israelite boys on the Nile, which is tossed them into the waters. So it makes all of the 9 plagues a counter to pharaoh's evil back in chapter one. That's one thing. The first of each triad plagues one four and 7 all have the phrase. So that y'all will know that I am yahweh. And that's the key. That's what we're chasing. We've been tracing the name of the island. Yep. That's right. When you go to the second plague in each triad, that is plagues two 5 and 8, the frogs plague on.

So i'm gonna sit here and i'm a scroll through some stuff and you know take my mind off of it and really i was escaping into it and then the consequences that looking up and i had like three hours a time that went by and might not be the best example Something else that that has come up for me in trying to provide a better example of that is like my studio setup and i have worked really hard to arrange this room to be.

In future seasons So one of the big things obviously is reducing pollution reducing wastewater run off into the sea of marmara or reducing it into any see where this could happen And that would prevent these this build up this imbalance of nutrients that sets off this chain reaction by feeding the phytoplankton. Like that and there is some indication that that could work. According to zhang's article there is. There's every reason to think halting pollution could actually make a difference in the following years Because of what we've already seen work in the adriatic sea remember. Adriatic is where Where these older reports from the eighteenth century of the murray spor co had taken place and john writes quote in the adriatic Pousse-cafe says and that's a researcher who was one of the authors of that..

"Yeah which contains things like fertilizers. This can lead to a chain reaction in which the phytoplankton sort of become stressed and under conditions of stress. They exude mucus. Our this this mucus like material. That of course can lead to these runaway conditions. Now how exactly does this process happen Well it's actually described very well in that that era jong article in the atlantic from from From june twenty-first. So she backs up to the starting point that we already talked about with With marine snow. You've got marine snow already in the water. But then you've got these imbalances of nutrients that are largely caused by the untreated wastewater in the agricultural runoff. That may contain fertilizers. And this leads. The phytoplankton in the water to produce copious mucus the excess of mucus. Then accumulates into these these things We mentioned earlier. That were sometimes called stringers. The you know the snot like strings. And then that accumulates into and then ends up somehow floating up onto the surface becoming these sheets Now one question is why do warm water in in calm weather conditions also contribute to marine. Musa village. build up will. It goes like this. In the warmer months. The sun heats up the top layer of the water column near the surface which causes increased stratification. So the warm layer of water above the cold layers of water below in the cold layer of water is denser than the warm layer of water and salinity also affects. This saltier water is denser than less salty water which is why in really salty bodies of water like the dead sea. It's easier for things to float. Because the water is denser but also cold. Water is denser so mucus forms in the top layer of the water. Where the photo synthesizing organisms. The phytoplankton are up near the top of the water. They produce the mucus after it's produced. The mucus starts to sink. But because of the water column stratification at some point it hits dense. Cool water and stop sinking. It just hangs around. And as it hangs around it starts to aggregate together and accumulate into the strings or clouds. And here's where the third element comes in mentioned I mentioned temperatures The the pollution but also the calm weather winds and storms could normally come in to rough up the waters in essentially tear up. Churn up forming strings and clouds of mucus but if the weather is especially calm that doesn't happen. At for example we talked about how this was historically observed in the adriatic sea. The adriatic sea tends to be relatively calm. Then after that jong writes there are bacteria within all of this that start to decompose it and as they decompose it. They release gases. Forming bubbles within this accumulated matrix of mucus and then it floats to the top of the water and collects in sheets on the surface and one astounding fact that john mentioned is the quote in the adriatic sea the arm of the mediterranean just east of the italian peninsula. The floating mucus can dry and toughen in the sun. Seagulls are known to walk on.

"But all that they gathered from the sea was dead and withered as if in the blast of great coldness such as would emanate from the trans arctic ice and they drew forth from their signs living monsters as well. Such as the eldest captains had never beheld things triple headed entailed and thinned with horror black shapeless things that turn to liquid foulness and ran from the net like a vile eichor or headless shapes like bloated moons with green frozen raise about them or things leper aside and bearded with stiffly oozing slime. It was as if some trans dimensional and along blocked channel beneath the known familiar sees of earth had opened suddenly into the strange waters of ultra mundane ocean's teaming with repulsive and malformed life while that goes to supernatural dimensions but at the same time still connects very much to the topic. We're going to be talking about today. Yeah oh and by the way. If some of your winning ultra mundane that just sounds like even more mundane than usual. It actually means the opposite. Ultra mundane means like from beyond the solar system. Oh i would not have known that. I threw me for a curve. at first. Because of the ultra mundane yeah man. That must be super monday. And but no does annuities doing especially average but anyway on these themes of sleiman mucus. It got me thinking about this question. Like what does life from the microscopic level to the plants and the mega-fauna all have in common will one thing that is coming to most life especially Most life that lives in the water is mucus or slime. It you know. Some kind of like slimy. Substances viscous slimy lubricating kinds of substances in the body A really some. The keystones of organic life. I was thinking about how There was one time when i was in high school when i remember being present for a a sermon that was preached on the verse in the bible about how the blood is the life. And the point of the sermon. Was that Was that statement. The blood is the life in. The bible is scientifically accurate which on reflection this kind of a funny claim to make. I mean i guess that's true like if you remove all the blood from something it doesn't live anymore But but i started thinking about how the slime is the life. The mucus is life because you've got microorganisms of course that secrete uzi mucus like substances called musa lidge But you can also find that implants if you break a stalk of succulent. It will leak a viscous usage too. Yeah you. I mean we could easily do an entire podcast series if not an entire podcast period on slime. Because you look at the. I mean just look at the ways the importance of slime in the human body. You know it's it's greatly important and look at some of the the very unique creatures that utilized slime so well the hag fish for example that we've discussed numerous times a true wizard of slime sorcerer. Lose that that is able to to utilize this stick slimy substance that it exudes so wonderfully as a self defense mechanism. Yeah and the truly amazing thing about the heck fishes how much of it can create. And how fast. yeah another..

"The pigeon cure was written about in the london pharmacopoeia which was issued by the college of physicians in sixteen eighteen and it contained a remedy again with the finger quotes for the plague which involved pulling off the feathers of living pigeons and then holding their bill shut and then holding their bare but to the plague sore until they die. Nothing thought or the pigeon whichever comes first the thought was that you were transmitting. The plague from the boo boos into the pigeon. And that's why the pigeon died. That's just bad doctrine. Yeah well yeah. I got open puffy source. Let's put an animal's ass on it That doesn't make any sense. But if the pigeon died that meant that some of the plague went into the pigeon. So then you'd get a fresh pigeon you'd rip the feathers off that but you put that but right on that boo boo And then Keep doing that until Like you said one of them died. Yeah so i. If you couldn't find a pigeon you could use chickens not as highly recommended and infrequently there was also frog usage in the similar way frog usage. It was called the exploding frog cure. And so you would Put had force a frog onto the wound of the plague victim Until the frog died that was the extent of the treatment. Yeah the goal was. Hopefully the frog would explode because it would be so filled up with plague and then once once that happened the the patient wouldn't have the play any more because it had gone into that frog that doesn't does is exploded. Now yeah so. This wasn't a great method but it might have been better than living in the sewer. Now plague doctors other worst as we have discussed on many occasions at this time. The idea was that bad air caused. Yes and you know bad air by if it smells bad So if it smells bad it could be dangerous so the thought was as the plague was airborne bad air. They thought that people should live in sewers because that was also bad air and that air would combat the bad air. So it's kind of like fighting fire with fire only with stench. Fortunately i get the flu very often. But i know that when i've had the flu i can't find a comfortable position on a bed. Yeah let alone in a sewer. But who am i to judge. Sewers may have been far more comfortable in those days. Now i doubt it as you can imagine If you didn't die from the plague you probably would get some sort of weird illness from living in us. Hewer with open source. It's not a great situation. Don't don't live in the sewer. Our advice to you on the box of oddities. Don't live in a sewer especially if you have open wounds. Another thought process for curing. The plague was eating lots of fruits. Veg and eggs okay. Yeah absolutely because you want to boost your immune system by way of those minerals and vitamins right now. That's not why really because if you're eating fruits and vegetables and eggs it's that means you're not eating milk cheese and meat and that's what you want to avoid. It wasn't about what you were eating. It's about what you weren't eating. You didn't want to eat milk cheese or meat because those are the kinds of foods that if left out smell bad and that would give you the plague. See all right okay. Don't look at sick people now. This sounds funny The idea was that there were aerial spirits. You know that could invade your body through your eye holes in case you looked at the eye of someone who had the plague..

"Sorry team to know going into this road. Is that in some ways. Things have finally been getting in parts of eastern australia years of drought and bushfires in some places and pale in others. That's especially true for grain. Growers and we're talking here mainly about growers in inland new south wales and parts of queensland victoria and south australia.
