"Great food also so it's a cheap place to go and it's easy to make friends. This is travel with Rick Steves. We're talking about the Czech Republic, specifically the capital city of product, we're joined by two Czech guides who both live and work in Prague, Yana horoscope, and Catherine at svobodova. Our phone number is 877-333-7425, and Sarah's on the line from ferndale in Michigan, hi Sarah. Hi. Thank you for taking my call. Yeah, do you have a comment or a question for our guides? I do. I'm going to be traveling to Prague with a friend of mine. We are both single in our early 40s, and we are looking for some maybe out of the way places to go to meet people and just kind of enjoy the check culture. I mean, we do plan on going to many of the tourist spots, but we also kind of want to get that authentic check experience at our age. So out of the way, meet the people, get away from the tourists a couple of women in their 40s traveling. What would you guys recommend? So I think that you do not necessarily have to stay in bracket, of course, depends how many days you will have altogether because I would say that for later like exploring of Prague, you would need at least two days, free would be even better, but you can definitely make a trip to a not very remote neighborhood where there might be an interesting castle or a little medieval town or something and it's all very easily manageable because the public transportation system is just functioning and you don't need to be afraid. And usually people communicate in English. So would it be safe in a neighborhood? Neighborhood for two single women. Yeah, that's what I was just going to say when they ask about that wallet. Our age. This is quite amazing how I never thought of that after some time when I started to travel around the world that we are actually that lucky that we live in such a safe city. And I'm the whole country too, that we don't have to be worried as women. I like to go to like jazz bars or so to go in the middle of the night big home, I don't need to worry about that. It's a big city when I'm working in Prague, I walk home in the dark at 12 o'clock, I never even thought to my safe. It's a beautiful city. You're very blessed that way in Prague and Czech Republic. There you go, Sarah. Thank you very much. This is travel with Rick Steves. We're talking about Prague with Yana and catharina. You know, I'm very curious about the challenges today. Democracies all over the world are experiencing division and fear and rise of autocracy and fear of immigrants and just over the border from you in Hungary is a very extreme example. What is your view of Hungary and do you see anything like this happening in the Czech Republic? Katarina. Well, I would say that not yet, it is not that extreme as I feel it in Hungary when I go there. So when you see Hungary from Czech Republic, just very briefly, what do you see happening in Hungary? Cutting the human rights very much so, the prime minister is really getting over and basically taking the power from the media and so on and so on. And how is he doing that? How is he able to get the people to support him derailing democracy? Well, it was also that they changed the electoral system there. So then all of a sudden he was reelected just because they somehow changed the proportion of the regions and so on. In a similar dynamic is going on in Poland, so you must look around and feel like what's going to happen in the Czech Republic. What do you see? Is there any feeling of division and fear and people compromising their freedoms in order to be safe from immigrants or refugees or you know this kind of fear that autocrats will use? Well, I would say that our country is as much split as yours to be honest really. And we actually only less than ten years ago introduced the direct vote of the president. You must look at the news. You can see the news in Britain in Poland and turkey and Hungary in the United States. And you must wonder which way is the tide going up or down? And it's worrying, and I just don't understand that people have forgotten already. You know, what was going on under communism. Because just 30 years ago, exactly one year freedom. Exactly. Exactly. We're getting insider tips for enjoying the charm of Prague right now on travel with Rick Steves with locally based tour guides katerina svobodova and Yana Hiroshi. Katka offers a variety of themed tours of Prague at Prague walker dot com. By the way, our conversation was recorded just before the pandemic and its lockdowns had disrupted international travel. One thing I love about the Czech Republic is the sense of humor. You guys have the most quirky, fascinating sense of humor. Let's just close with just what is unique about the check sense of humor, caterina. A couple of years ago, it was pretty amazing. We had that contest about the greatest check. And a person who never existed, who was created by two actors and playwrights, they just created his image, so never will a real person, but he almost made it to be the biggest check so they had to cross him off those. He was competing against the greatest checks in history. The presidents and then, you know, it's almost absurd. In fact, Franz Kafka is a famous check. Humorist or philosopher. What would you call him? And what is his thinking? Well, I think that he was a man that can not be really put into any category. He was really unique. I would maybe compare him a little bit to George Orwell because I think that he was describing things that were about to come, yeah. Because in some of his books, you can kind of read things that could be very easily applied to, for example, the communist rule that we experience in reality. So he left in the or he was born in the late 1800s and for his time he was a very liberal man. So he had a bit of a problem with the environment. You could speak out against an authoritarian regime without going to prison if you were absurd and just sort of cloaked in commentary, but it was sort of in another world. And I think the checks are really good at traveling without being able to travel. During the time that you could not travel. Because you could fantasize and you could go into a tea house and be in China. I mean, Prague, there's some beautiful tea houses. For people that couldn't travel. And then of course, you've got all the absurdist art and the black. What is the black light black light? Black light theater? Yes, that's another thing we like a lot. And of course, it's not always easy to describe it. I would rather just say go and see it because it's absurdity with in a theater. This is travel with Rick Steves. We've been exploring the Czech Republic and its capital city of Prague with our two guides Yana Hiroshi and Katarina. How do we say thank you very much in check? And how do we say happy travels in check? Well, we say yes. There's no test to that would be maybe the best. What is that again? It's like Bon voyage. Bon voyage. And we really appreciate you being here. Thank you. Travel with Rick Steves is produced at Rick Steves Europe in Edmonds Washington.

The Hunter Biden Laptop Story: If It's Not in the News, It Didn't Happen
"Of course, there was a big cover up back in, I guess it was October, so when all of this was discovered that Joe, the Hunter Biden laptop and the New York Post was about the only newspaper that was covering it until they were told like Matt, not now. You can't cover that. And from the last interview you had when and was with you and mcilhenny, there are co producer and your wife, you had said to her when early on when you guys, I guess we're dating and you were journalists together. You said to her and I have actually used this quote and I've given it a credit to you. You said if it's not in the news, it didn't happen. And that's exactly what happened with the Hunter Biden laptop. They said, not newsworthy, so nobody in America or around the world will know that this actually is real. Yeah, you know, yeah, you know, show you how old I am. I said, I was not in the paper. It didn't happen. And so yeah, they decided to cover this up. They decided to suppress this, not even cover it up surprise. You know, we can't verify the laptop. Well, you've got New York Times. You could 1200 reporters actually, you know, there are emails with 6 people copied on them. Go and ask the other 5 people, then you get the did you send this email. And you know, one of them will confirm it. And if all of them refused to deny it, but then you know it's true, right? You can say, nobody, you know, and no one denying that this was a genuine email. Find out, I mean, they spend so much time and energy working out of Michael Cole and ever went to Prague. I mean, you can find out Joe Biden was in surplus or Hunter Biden was in certain places at certain times. And then you can find out people who emailed and where they were. And you can find out the time that he was there. I mean, these are not difficult things you can send him a list of questions. And he can refuse to answer them. And you can say that. And if he's by the way, it's very easy to prove that you weren't somewhere or you didn't send an email. You know, was there any spelling mistakes and emails, were there anybody named wrongly was the most over some email addresses? If these are fake, how do they get the email addresses? This could collapse in a minute if you put any investigative power behind it. But the problem was they wouldn't collapse. In fact, the more they investigated the more it would be verified.

"And one of the last 20 years one last thing, one thing is very sure if I had such accusations as a private person in public, I couldn't work, professionally, I couldn't live my life. I would be affected in a way that it would hurt myself and I had very much problems. I confronted in a podcast temperate with the whole situation who was in the double specialist who was in the Olympic team and the same flat with Sasha's Vera for one week with all the other German players. And he said, of course, they don't talk about this topic. Privately or at least he told me they don't. But he said like, I don't know the exact English word for it, but he has such a very fast head. I always get it wrong. He has to have a very, very strong mind to play tennis and to live like nothing is happened at all or nothing, no allegations are there to lift life he lives at the moment and temperate said he couldn't do it. And I personally agree, I couldn't do a podcast with you. I couldn't write good articles. Many people have had that reaction. I will say it was served. Many people that are surprised that how normal he's been acting probably at least in the last year. Yeah. I just wanted to bring the opinion of temperate up because I found out interesting. Yeah. Well, I found your opinions here interesting to, yeah, I thank you very much for being back on NCR. Where do you want to talk? We only wanted to talk 25 to 30 minutes. I knew that was not happening. But what did where can people follow you and see some of your work going forward if they want to hear more? That's very nice on Twitter.

"prague" Discussed on No Challenges Remaining
"Me, I gotta say or call me off guard when I first saw this week just because we have not seen it in tennis before. And I would sort of confused about it not being used at the grand slams, which are an ITF event. And if Russia is on bad terms with the ITF as a International Olympic Committee member, then I'm kind of surprised it wasn't effective or affecting them at the Grand Slam level as well. We didn't see like Daniel Medvedev when the U.S. open with RTF next to his name instead of our U.S.. So what do you know about this situation and is it going to end at any point? Is this a permanent situation? And were players there, you know, just calling them Russia because I honestly just inclined to call them Russia. I think I'll say my opinion earlier than you can answer this. I think this whole concept is stupid. I think either if you want to make an impact on Russia, to punish them, you ban Russia. You say Russia can't compete, but to let a team in that's all Russians and just use some code word for Russia that's very obvious that has an R in it that stands for Russia, you know? I just think it's pointless. I think it doesn't accomplish anything. But I'm curious what you think and what people around the competition think about RTF. I think you already answered everything necessary from a fan site point of view like it's bullshit in reality. But on paper, you have to do something because Russian got the quality band because of the quality of state orchestrate doping. It's effect. It's well researched by German journalist higher settled in 2015 with quickly though it would be good to get background. I know you know a lot about this topic. But I will say, none of the states wants are doping that we're aware of. Ever impacted tennis. Correct? Yeah, yeah. That's exactly the point. So on the one hand, you have to. Stay doping with a lot of examples but obviously a lot of athletes who are still clean not not have any doping violations. So what to do about this? It's a very tricky situation with a blind spot. I wrote about it before the ATP cup this year for a site online. And the main thing you already mentioned is only the ITF is also bound by the vada coast, the most important code in the global and the doping code. And the Billie Jean King that cup now, and the Davis Cup are the only team events organized by the ITF also the krantz lamps are organized by the ITF, you know that. But the problem is, they call it as a team World Cup event. And only there this rule is there. So they tried. It's not very clear in the roots. And they obviously excuse me because it's not my language. I could explain it way more better and German. So excuse me for but for that, but yeah, basically they don't accept the ATP cup as the team event by the ITF and only the ITF does all the doping controls in tennis. And that in turn is solely responsible for the anti doping fight and the test at all events including the tournament on the ATP tour such as the ATP cup because only the ITF is also bound by the vada coat the most important component and the global anti doping fight that's what I was writing in my article. One last thing I asked how Russia could start their team event the ATP refer to the ITF back then. It's still worth Miller, the longtime anti doping manager set in a mail back then, my opinion, the ATP cup is not affected by the cast decision, but it can cook up is therefore the Russian athletes can start as a Russian team of our prescription. And now they are starting as Russian tennis federation yeah. Yeah. So it's a blind spot. It's a blind spot. They are not also if you would be completely right like when is winning the U.S. open as a single player, you can't show the Russian flag, but yeah, it is what it is. I just have the concept that it's dumb. If you're gonna allow them to compete just admit they are Russians. I think that's sort of half step is silly. Briefly to finish this topic is what it says, actually on the Wikipedia page, I think they summed it up well for Billie Jean King cup. It says, in accordance with the band by the world ended up in agency and in December 2020 decision by the court of arbitration for sport, the team from Russia is not permitted to use the Russian name, flag or anthem, will participate in the 2021 Billy Jean King cut finals as the team of the Russian tennis federation. And we use the flag of the RTF, which the flag of the RTF is three tennis balls, red blue and white that look like a Russian flag. And also, if you look at the Olympics, the ROC team, which is wearing these track suits that basically were just Russian flags. It was like white on top and then blue then red. And so they were brought the flag with them. It's all, I think it's all just kind of farcical. It's on the line underlined what the ITF wrote me in January according to the ITF interpretation effect that these are the Davis Cup bleaching king cap the World Cup and beach tennis, for example, and the World Cup for wheelchair, which a player and then, at the events mentioned, Russian athletes are only allowed to complete as neutral athletes without a flag by anthem and the ITF does not see the ATP cup affected here either. I think you are the first person Yannick and NCR history to ever mention beach tennis on the show. By the way, it's an ITF always talks about we never ever hear anything about being so shout out to beach tennis, I guess. I want to ask about just your experience also on the ground in Prague. You were there. Like you said it was your first time covering a term outside of Germany. Since the pandemic began, what was the access like? What was the experience like as a reporter on the ground? I don't think there were too many reporters there..
"prague" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"Yes, back. Yeah. Similar, just the other way around. Similar just infinitely worse. Clocks going forward days the best day. Yes. That's right. I hate it. I hate it. It got dark at about half past 12, yeah. Let's just hibernate until March. Anybody up for that? No, because loads and loads of tennis to watch in the meantime, including this week. And you've got to present live TV tomorrow. So we're going to do that instead, but I get your point. And pumped and pumped as you can tell. Very much understand where you're coming from. I think of all of us, Matt is the one here that has nailed the end of October. Because where are you right now, Matt? I'm sitting in my hotel in Prague. Oh, come on. It's very cool to be out in the world again for the Billie Jean King cup finals, and it is really great to be here. He's being loomed over by the creepiest piece of hotel artwork. I've ever seen. The figure of a sort of Victorian murderous murderous in in silhouette. Right above your bed. Yeah. I mean, I believe it's actually a dance, but on a Zoom call, it does look a lot like a re silhouette. I don't want to be looking at that on Halloween night. I really don't. Anyway, so Matt's in Prague, which I have to say is one of the favorite cities I ever visited in my role at the ATP well over 20 years ago I went to Prague. And I think it is the most sense beautiful city I've ever been to. And I hope you get to properly have a walk about and enjoy it. Yes, I'm hoping on finals day. I will have a chance to explore the city center because the tennis starts quite early most days, but I'm final's day. I think it's a four o'clock start. So I'll have some time beforehand. I took advantage of the extra hours sleep this morning and went to bed early, got up early, went for a run. I know tennis podcast, listeners might be might be keen to hear another update of my running. This didn't go so well because I had pinpointed a place on the map, which I thought looked suitable, running in an unfamiliar city. It looked like a park when I got there. It was a cemetery. Oh God. What are the rules about running around cemeteries? Is it considered disrespectful? Maybe it's respectful, I don't know. I thought it would be frowned upon. So I went somewhere else. It's whoever quite a day here on the tennis podcast on Halloween day. But yeah, well the tennis starts tomorrow. And the teams have been into their press conferences today. We'll be hearing a few snippets from those, and that was asking questions of everybody. Over the last 24 hours. But what do you make of the setup there? First of all, mat and the sort of the feel of the event. Because as I said, I think that everybody in tennis is frankly just really grateful and relieved that this event is happening, because it didn't last year, two years ago, we were doing nightly tennis podcasts just as we are now when the event was in Perth. And it was the final between when it was still one country against another in the form of Australia against France, France sending up winning that final. And then it didn't happen last year like so many big tennis and sporting events around the world didn't happen. So really, Prague is kind of bailed the sport out because of Budapest falling through. What have you made of it so far? What sort of weak do you expect? Well, we heard from the president of the Czech tennis association today a man called Evo caldo, and he said that the inspiration to step in and host the British in king cup finals came to him while watching barbarically cheek of her in the French Open final. He thought, you know, we need to capitalize on this. This is an amazing moment for tennis. Wouldn't it be great if we could bring the finals to Prague? And yeah, as you said, I think everyone's really great for it to be here. The venue looks fantastic. It's The O2 Arena in Prague. Lots of players saying the surface is the same as in a Strava from a few weeks ago conditions are quite slow, but you know, I think players are pretty happy with it overall. The big takeaway for me is just how different this feels to, as you said, the Davis Cup finals of 2019 in Madrid, which was the other time where the revamped format has been seen. Because there was, you know, I was there in Madrid, and there was an incredible amount of scrutiny about the format change. You know, as an awful lot of opinion on both sides, a lot of emotion. There were some people who thought that the new format was killing the Davis Cup. There were some that thought it was revitalizing it. And there was some in between some in the middle, but mostly it was quite a polarizing topic really. And while the format change is certainly news here, you know, people are talking about it. We're asking players about it. It's just that strength of feeling has died down..

Well, look, I have to, when Dennis, Dennis was just gushing about you when he first mentioned you to me a month or two ago. So I can't wait to have this discussion with you unfettered uninterrupted. For those who are not familiar, look, prager you very simply is one of the most influential most important organizations pushing back on the tyranny on the wokeness on the political correctness in America.

And most importantly, what your politics were until recently amala. Sure, yeah, so I was born and raised in a small town in Central Florida, and it was raised by a single mother of three who happens to be a very, very active leftist. So while I'm here working for Prague, you, my mom is back in Florida, working for the left. She is a fundraiser and works in development for a left leaning organization out there. So as you can imagine, being raised by my mother, who does happen to be white, I was very cognizant of my race and my gender from a very young age with the leftist ideology and going along those lines. So I grew up to be a very angry leftist for most of my life. I even ended up working for the left when I graduated high school. And of course, that didn't last very long because I'm

"prague" Discussed on Stuff You Missed in History Class
"Or the other of them. This wasn't at all the first time in history that there had been an anti pope but this whole competing string of them and the disputes among the various states about which one was legitimate stretched on for the better part of sixty years. The western schism really damaged the catholic churches reputation. It also undermines the idea of the pope as the supreme authority so as the church's power and authority were weakening movements for reform which had existed for almost. As long as the church had started to become a lot more vocal. One of these reformers was yon meal. Each who established bethlehem chapel in prague bethlehem chapel became most popular church and it conducted services in check instead of in latin starting in fourteen. O two yon. who's was in charge of the chapel. Both as the preacher and as an administrator and the chapel also became home to a national reform movement and who's became a leader in that movement as well in fourteen o nine petro's largos was elected pope becoming alexander the fifth. He was intended to replace two competing. Popes that was gregory the twelfth and benedict the thirteenth. But neither gregory nor benedict step down when alexander was elected so instead of one pope there were three things a lot more complicated for young who said his followers who supported alexander but higher. Church officials in bohemia still recognize the authority of gregory. And at this point things had already been difficult. For the reform movements that hughes was part of english theologian john wycliffe and his followers who were known as the lords had been influential in the bahamian movement. But a lot of wycliffe teachings had been condemned as heretical. Some of the movement's members had also been accused of heresy in them. Some of them recanted their views. This left who's without anybody to back him up. He was accused of heresy as well. Although at first he wasn't prosecuted for it. Eventually pope alexander was bribed to ban preaching in private chapels including bethlehem chapel. But who refused to stop his work. He was excommunicated and once again charged with heresy I was talking to a friend of mine. Who's a history teacher about this whole thing. And she was like she on. Who's had been good at giving compliment sandwiches. Like some of the other people who didn't wind up accused of heresy because he was just like one hundred percent on fire all the time so then when he refused to preaching the entire city of prague was punished as long as he kept doing his work. None of its would be allowed to receive communion or to be buried on catholic church grounds finally. The council of constance was assembled to resolve the issue of the three competing popes and end the western schism and to deal with yon huss. The council began in november fourteen. Fourteen and host was summoned to appear under a letter of safe conduct but even though the safe conduct promise was supposed to keep him from harm. Who's was tried for heresy and convicted. He was burned at the stake on july sixth fourteen. Fifteen after hughes's martyrdom. Nobles in both bohemia and maria protested what had happened. They wrote letters to the council and they offered their protection people who were being persecuted for their religious beliefs whose followers another like minded reformers became known as the husayn. It's these events sparked a massive movement in bohemia a century before the start of the protestant reformation the hus- sites were using a czech language. Liturgy instead of a latin one they were also administering communion to lay people using both bread and wine when catholic services.

Wet Notes - 4-9-21
"This is wet notes here scuba shock radio for april ninth two thousand and twenty one first up today. I'd like to give you an update on new netflix. Documentary see spiracy. You might recall that. I introduced you to this film in a previous segment of wet notes. Well it did premiere on netflix's advertised. And i had a chance to watch. She spiracy a couple of weeks ago. The film is eighty nine minutes long and it can be captivating and controversial. Like i said this is certainly raising a great deal controversy especially as it relates to sustainable seafood and fishing. There's a couple of organizations that they called out into spiracy earth island institute and the marine stewardship council actually marine stewardship council issued a response on their website within days of the premier and every day. I see something more coming out related to the controversy. But i encourage you to watch the film and then decide for yourself about what it is saying like. I said lots of controversy. That's spiracy on net flicks now. Here's something that. I found really interesting. I came across an article that talked about how scientists are using thin wales to map out what lies beneath the sea floor. Now according to to seismologists vaclav kina from the czech academy in prague and john nab elec of oregon state university in corvallis oregon the song of the fin. Whales are loud enough to penetrate the earth's crust and revealed deep structures. I guess they have a network of fifty four bottomed size meter seismometers that the tech sound waves traveling through the ground and they picked up the of whales as they were passing by. Now they have a one hundred and eighty nine decibels song and that song can last from two and a half to five hours as they did more analysis they were able to map the underlying rock structures. According to these guys this is just as effective as those air cannons that are polluting the ocean with all that noise how practical this is yet to be seen. But you've gotta admit it is interesting. Now here's an update on the lectured aluminum tanks situation. You might recall back at the end of february. I told you about luxembourg Decision to exit the aluminum tank business and that they were looking to sell their plants in the us and the uk more. Here's some good news. Metal impact out of elk grove village in illinois is acquiring the graham north carolina luxembourg cylinder plant metal impact is no stranger to scuba tank business. They've been around since nineteen fifty nine and in two thousand fourteen. They purchase worthington. Aluminum cylinders has been providing aluminum scuba tanks to excess scuba and see pearls for a number of years. We've got quite a few from excess scuba over the past couple of years and so we're pretty familiar with metal impacts. This is some good news for the. Us aluminum Scuba tank supply chain. There's absolutely no doubt that. The pandemic has had a dramatic impact on the scuba industry. But i guess it's not all bad news if you happen to be in the right place and it seems that hawaii is those right places especially for new diver certifications. There's a recent article in scuba diving magazine. Titled more hawaiians getting certified than before the pandemic turns out that even though the travel has been restricted to and from the islands more locals are turning to scuba aloha scuba on awad who had reported a one hundred and twenty percent increase in new diver certifications. In two thousand and twenty. They went from twenty seven in two thousand and nineteen to eighty three in two thousand and twenty spurred by whole families going for they're open water certification with some great diving. It certainly makes sense to mask up and dive in our aloha state. Last week i was trying to see if the ocean based climate solutions act of two thousand and twenty was being introduced in this session of congress. Well no update on that yet but i did come across something very interesting. There is a house select committee on the climate crisis now. This committee was created during the one hundred sixteenth congress. That was the last one so it hasn't been around long. But they did produce a climate action plan of two thousand twenty. And that's called the congressional action plan for a clean energy economy and a healthy resilient and just america committee is chaired by representative. Kathy castor from florida and the ranking chair is representative garrett graves from louisiana now. I watched their organizing meeting from march nineteenth. Let's say there's just a little bit of difference on the ideas of how to approach In the approaches in making the us carbon zero by two thousand fifty but as representative castor stated. It's time to turn recommendations into policy. Now i'll be tracking our actions and keep you updated here and finally you might recall. Last year the uss bonham rashard an eight hundred forty four foot long and fibia assault ship burned out of control for five days. Now that was in san diego california. But now senator. Marco rubio from florida is proposing that the ship be used to create an artificial reef down in florida little bit of background. The navy did some cost analysis On what it would take to restore the ship to operational status an estimated that that would be somewhere between two point. Five and three point five billion dollars but the cost to decommission and scrap the bonham rashard would be about thirty million dollars. Senator rubio didn't provide any details on where the ship might be sunk and be become an artificial reef but he did say that it could be done for less than thirty million dollars to scrap the ship. This word Happened it would be. We'll keep an eye on it and see where it goes. Fingers crossed that will have another artificial reef down in florida. Something that big to dive on. Well that's it for this installment of wet notes for april ninth. Two thousand and twenty
The Prague School of Rehabilitation and Principles of Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS)
"I think for the purpose of this discussion. Let's assume a person has never heard of. Dns has never heard of the prague school or any of these things can you in a somewhat succinct. But not terribly brief manner. Explain to people how all of this school of rehabilitation coalesced around this idea of what we call. Dns going back to the founding fathers of the prague school and what these various insights were that each of them had and how that sort of came together dns dynamic neuro muscular stabilization. Kind of built on some pioneers of functional rehabilitation. There's many that have been part of the prague school rehabilitation. But i think talking about the influence on the development of dynamic muscular stabilization by professor powell whole lodge who runs the rehabilitation department at prague school. At this time. I think we need to go back. Post world war two cold war era. Nine thousand nine hundred fifties his wear prague school rehabilitation was was really founded and it was founded as part of the medical faculty of charles university in prague czech republic or formerly czechoslovakia now czech republic and being post world war two cold war era so they were in eastern europe behind the wall. That may have been a factor for. They're not reliance but tendency towards the use of of observation in both diagnostic diagnosis but observation and palpitation for diagnosis and treatment. All three of these pioneers neurologist. And who are the three. Lot of miranda kerr levitt and ballclub woida professor janda. He had a keen sense of observation and he formulated concepts and principles that tied into pasta habituation specifically the tendency for specific musculature tend towards tightness and other musculature to tend towards weakness. And he he termed this upper cross and lower cross syndrome. So for example with an upper-crust syndrome meaning the neck and shoulder region with demands of life and tendency towards paschel habituation such as with sustained seated postures There is a tendency towards the muscles in the back of the neck the exceptional muscles the external cloud asteroid muscle which is the muscle that also attached to the skull in down to their sterner curricular joint the pec muscles the upper traps that musculature with ten towards a tight meaner over activation other musculature in the upper extremity the radius which attaches to the ribs in the back of the scapula the deep neck flex irs the middle and lower traps would have a tendency to tend towards the weakness and with that tendency towards over utilization or hyper tenacity and underutilization in addition weakness. That would also he also recognized that that would affect the quality of movement throughout the kinetic chain and subsequently would lead to overload in specific areas throughout that kinetic chain so that was a big contribution on his
Opinion: Being successful is about more than pursuing a good idea
"Et. al say was up the fire nation. And what's something that you believe about becoming successful. Most people disagree with many believe nothing. In order to be successful. You need only passion for good idea but the reality is much more ashen is one. Listen gregan except enough in order to be a real success through. I really do need passion for the idea. That's obvious determination. Focus and patients most successful business. People who have been more abuses. I'd be there are many obstacles. one has to overcome great something new. You know especially if you are the first thing that feed over. The cost of my life is great. Tree comes owning the factory business which is a former finance. Each company was unique in the first of its kind in the seed amount of projection. One gets from new ideas. These enormous one doesn't believe in his or her idea. More than one hundred percent simply wants work in any new ideas. I you have to educate the market which is very hard are always suspicious affinity new then you have to persuade the investors. The people around view and the list goes on and on. You feel you're going up in most of the times you'll be a low and the loneliness is very hard to accept. Stein goes on in get more experienced.

Houston it's always about enforce. There's a lot that i want to focus on throughout this entire interview fire nation. But the one thing i wanna pull out about. What a alger said is patients. I mean all of them were brilliant but patients. It is such as something that today. I see more than ever people. Just don't have an seems like the younger generation. The less patience. I have so many people all the time coming up and saying. Hey john like. I've been doing this for two months and i'm not seeing any returns. Think any success and like it's been two months. Where's your patients. Where's your persistence. Wears your you gotta keep at that thing. Fire nation so in doing some research on ual. I saw that you were chosen to be a mentor at the harvard.

Though i had my lecture plan i wanted to follow with students entering pro in prague improvise and said without hesitation that was born today or over the world is it potentially becoming in their furniture but the system. We live in prohibits most of them to become one why because of the barriers that society puts in front of us when the baby was born starts to crotone tone touching breaking things. The current say.

He's babies go through nursery and school and approach daily by new regulations of what they could or couldn't do then that news when they grow and enrolling through diversities and then it lasts.

Security operations centers: a first principle idea.
"The idea of operations centers has been around seemingly forever friedrich limb in his a history of western technology suggests that the concept goes back as far as five thousand bc amazing anytime an organization grows big enough either in terms of function or one. Small team can't do everything. Leaders have built these centers to men's the workflow and status of the various groups into coordinate. If you fast forward to the early days of the technological revolution we started seeing organizations. That began looking like a modern day sark. But we're quite there yet. The classic example is how nasa managed space missions starting way back in nineteen fifty eight now for those. Who don't know me. I'ma space geek specifically. I love everything about the space race between the russians and the americans during the nineteen sixties in fact as a side note the washington post lillian cunningham produced a thirteen episode podcasts. About that very thing last year it is called moon rise and i highly recommended. But did you know that when neil armstrong and buzz aldrin landed on the moon in nineteen sixty nine that the russians had a remote controlled spacecraft up there at the same time. I didn't know that. Until i listen to the moon rise podcasts. The russians crashed into a moon mountain as armstrong and aldrin. We're flying back to the lunar module so maybe that is why the russians don't advertise that much. But i digress. One of my favorite space movies is paolo. Thirteen directed by ron howard. And one of the things. I love about that. Movie is how it depicts the energy and sense of purpose of an operation center. Here's the actor. Ed harris in a virtuoso performance playing gene kranz the real life nasa flight director delegating tasks his crew of operational teams on what they need to do to get apollo thirteen at home. And the meantime whenever frozen command module to power it up another but the re entry batteries. We've been tried before we've never even stimulated it before gene. We're going to have to figure it out. i want people in our simulators working reentry scenarios. I want you guys to find. Every engineer designed ever switch every circuit transistor and every lightbulb. It's up there then. I want you to talk to the guy. Knee assembly line actually built the thing. Find out how to squeeze every aunt at both of these goddamn machines. I want this mark all the way back to earth with time to spare never lost an american in space where surest not gonna lose one on my watch. Failure is not an option. If that doesn't bring chills down your spine you might be dead. I'm just saying when telephone network started appearing in the early nineteen twenty s phone companies like eighteen bill traffic control bureaus to handle long distance traffic issues by the early nineteen sixties. At and t. Handled most telephone switching through mechanical devices and build a network control center or noc to manage it. At and t. Historians consider this to be the first knock ever built by nineteen seventy seven bell systems had built the first national knock in bedminster new jersey which looked a lot like modern knocks. Today there wasn't much security yet but if there was any knock operators were doing it in the us intelligence community the nineteen sixties were fraud with international incidents like the cuban missile crisis of nineteen sixty to the arab israeli six day war in nineteen sixty seven the us pueblo capture and nineteen sixty eight the prague spring crisis and czechoslovakia also nineteen sixty eight in the one. Twenty-one shootdown crisis in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine the. nsa decided that. They needed an operation center to manage their efforts. Across a wide swatch of international activity. Based on the freedom of information request. The nsa released a document in two thousand seven that described the formation of the first national cigarette operations center or insomniac in one thousand nine hundred seventy three and according to charles berlin. I hit him on lincoln and the answer me. He's a former in sock director. The innocent kept adding more responsibility to over time. He said that it's secret. Sauce was when the nsa decided to pair offense or cigarette defense or comsec in the same place. Eventually they replaced the word singing in the title with security. In other words it became the national security operations center. Berlin said that when cyber came along years later the toll of michigan came too big to keep in the in sock in the. Nsa created the national cyber threat operations center or the in talk to deal with it. But with the addition of the concept mission these operations centers started to lean toward defensive security on the government side and in the aftermath of the morris worm which was the first destructive internet worm
Remember When? 2020
"Welcome to new challenges remaining our usually annual most years we get around to it remember when episode four twenty twenty. I've been rothenberg. Always remember my dear friend courtney win. Hi courtney how are you. I'm doing well then. And how are you happy. December happy december to you as well. We were just sort of talking before we started recording about how this like year feels very different for this show. Like remembering things experiencing things was very different in twenty twenty and there's obviously know like a very clear break on in the episode about in chronologically when we stopped when we were going to things and we stopped going to things we experienced things remotely and in person. So i'm just curious before we forget started like what was this exercise of. Try and get notes together or wherever for twenty twenty. How how did it feel in vague terms. Yeah i think the initial challenge for me was trying to divorce. How i felt about the twenty twenty tennis season literally the encore results and the story lines and the narratives of what would be normal tennis. You know under any other circumstance trying to divorce that or untangle that in my feelings about that from my feelings about two thousand twenty as a year and it you know. I don't anybody who has listened to. Ncr is throughout you know since february knows about you know the arc and the struggles. I think both of us have had with respect to once. The shutdown came and once so much uncertainty hit the tennis tour but even more so so much uncertainty hit our lives in addition to just living in the midst of a deadly global pandemic that it was just hard to care about what was happening after march. And maybe obviously. I think that that you can talk about it separately from your experience for myself. There was an uptick of that once tennis returned so once we got back to to to to work for me effectively in palermo and palermo rolled into prague and progress into lexington rolled into cincinnati new york. A and you know. It was really nonstop but my memories of january and february so being in australia and then being in doha which was my final tournament site are so much more vivid and crisp and clear in my head compared to the effectively. What eight weeks or so of tennis smith longer than that. I suppose but but tennis that we got once we returned in july. It's all very much a mushy pile of potatoes From from august on yet. Because for me. I feel very similarly and for me. It's weird because usually did remember when episodes the tricky parts. The hazy parts is january. Right is the beginning of the year. The stuff at ten eleven months has passed since we've experienced it of piecing together like. Oh yeah i remember this that whatever. And that's still kinda the case in twenty twenty like those are still like descendant memories but they're also in some ways the clearest ones we have because those are what we were there in person for. And i'm thinking about how experienced the french open which was the most recent major tennis event right. It was me sitting at my desk and my computer. Which is something i've been doing. You know in various forms since in this room since april whether it was binge-watching british game shows or watch enough it all kind of just like in the same place in senior doesn't change and we're so used to these rhythms of being along the travelling circus tour and having this scenery shift all the time. Even if the players say the same the people say the same largely lake having it. Be a moving picture in here. Only very small part of the picture. Move ray at our screens moved and so that makes it like it. It makes it much smaller. If like you're if you're watching. Were staring an envelope. Only the postage stamp is changing. It's still the same envelope and that's sort of how it feels for parts of it. So it's it's a less a lot of it's going to be a lesser visceral memories. We have things like you know even like big things like jovic getting defaulted from the us open. Let's say like a big like remember where you were when you did. That was like yeah. It was my room like it's very pinky and the brain. Like what are you going to do tonight. What are we gonna do tonight. brain. We're gonna do what we do every night. Pinky we're going to try and take over the world. It this is. The pandemic has kind of felt like that in a lot of ways. It's like what were you doing. What i did the entire pandemic. That's what i was doing when x happened when this happened. It's just like you know it. It's yeah it's it's tough. It's tough to sort it out and you're right. I think that the lack of change of scenery and just and you know as just common sense like the lack of electricity. That we in an adrenalin data today. One that we are used to enjoying not enjoying like a good time but like that we get the benefit of the adrenaline. Were running on fumes during slams. I mean like it's exhausting. It's a very high stress environment but it. It helps you to your job and here. It's like rolling out of bed every day at one thirty. A m forcing myself to go to sleep at four. Pm the night before like all of this sort of stuff you know it For weeks on end trying to get excited about something. That's happening in the middle of the night like i'm so clearly you know when we're in australia. We know what's happening in the middle of the night in the us. But it's not the middle of the night for us there but here like covering the french open at four five o'clock in the morning west coast time. It was hard. it was hard to motivate. And therefore you're distracted you're distracted you can't really focus on thing that's happening. I'm not a neurologist. Obviously but i do feel like there has to be some sort
Do Not Adjust Your TV
"Their feet a lot of the time though. It's simply a matter of broadcasting a stronger signal than the station is the equipment can be sophisticated but it can also be made of scrap. Parts from things like ham radios. The motives vary widely from frustration. To it's just a prank bro. to we don't even know what heads up. There will be real clips in this episode and some of them are weird with a capital. W t f the earliest signal intrusion anywhere in the world that we know of happened back in nineteen sixty six in the soviet city of kaluga and almost triggered a nuclear war. If you know only one thing about world history in the second half of the twentieth century it would probably be the cold war decades of itchy trigger finger tension between the us and the us are one night. The regular broadcast was suddenly interrupted by a seemingly official emergency warning that nuclear war had just broken out with the united states. Many viewers took the message seriously running for cover and seeing their final prayers thankfully as what happened with stanislav petrov. Nineteen eighty-three when he correctly guessed that the early warning system was malfunctioning. When it reported incoming us bombers you can hear all about that way back in episode eleven for want of a nail government. Officials weren't quick to react a good thing to at the time. The ussr had over seven thousand nuclear weapons at their disposal. Ducted eighteen nuclear weapons tests that year alone. The us had nearly four times as many. But that's neither here nor there. It would only take fifty hiroshima sized bombs to plunge the world into nuclear winter. The soviets weren't messing around. If one official had thought another department had put out jim. It message about the us attacking. That could've been the start of a very fast extinction level event thankfully. The officials didn't panic at least not officially it would later be found that a teenager had hacked the station. His name was never released possibly because of his age and possibly to save him from retaliation from his neighbors or maybe it was a made up. Cover story tin foil hat. Nuclear war became a running theme for signal takeovers and it wasn't confined to the cold war in june of two thousand seven a show called panorama was part of the regular programming in the city of prague. In what is now czechia. The show was meant as a sort of tourist program to display calm scenic areas around the country. Like a tv travel brochure. This particular episode started off as usual with long. Lingering shots of picturesque locales around prague. Without warning the screen was bathed in a blinding flash and mushroom cloud began to climb into the sky above the city. This would be disturbing enough to see on its own but panorama was usually aired live meaning terrified viewers. At home were left. They had just witnessed a nuclear strike on their hometown. The hijacking was seamless. There had been no static or breaks in the tv signal. It was so realistic. In fact that even government officials and authorities believed the explosion was real. Luckily it doesn't take many phone calls or glances out of a window to confirm that there is not in fact a mushroom cloud rising above a blast crater in the middle of the city authorities soon turned their energy to finding the perpetrators. It would eventually be discovered that a guerrilla artistic collective called sto hoven which is known for their extravagant hoaxes and pranks were the culprits. Apparently this was a piece of performance art whether or not making hundreds of people think they're about to die.
Team Secret Cleans Up At Esports Awards
"Team secret for the e sports awards that i did not watch at all They one team of the year. They won player of the year which was nisha and coach of the year. Which is hain. is that all correct syndrome. Correct what do you think of that. So teamster again no. Ti this year and other other games have had the kind of their big tournaments some of them at least league for example but secret essentially winning the last. If you wanna take out the last few weeks has been seven plus money. I wanna say eight events in a row. Yeah seven months. They want everything just winning. Literally everything would you. I mean obviously our daughter bubble. So we're gonna agree right. The doda words everything. i would agree with. I don't know if i would put nietzsche's player of the year. I think it's hard to pick one. Yeah but he would definitely be one other candidates right. So i mean as it always is with these multi game award shows right. It's easy for us to say that these are great choices because we don't follow the other games that are part of it nearly as much to be honest with you. I don't even know which games are eligible to win in the sports category. If it's dodo leagues he has go rainbows. Six call of duty. Like i don't know what games are included in this is. It's hard to imagine another team in any game being as dominant the secret where this year. I think that's fair to say like you need to basically when everything right and not only that but the competition needs to be tougher which is unlikely once again because of corona because you know arguably secret even had a really tough region to play and while this was happening wasn't like it was just free easy wins because the region was week or something still tons of teams so it's super impressive I'm happy coaches got a bit more recognition so gretz to heen as well. I think he's really elevated this team to the next level they just started owning after he joined. I feel like it made a pretty big difference at least down the stretch Ceo good stuff. The thing about these awards shows though is. I don't know how much stock to put in the general. It's always cool for the teams to get recognition like this But i wish maybe it was a little bit more transparent a little more defiant. How we're going to segue into this next kind of mini topic of what do you think of award shows for e. sports in general because from my perspective i'm used to watching the oscars. I don't really watch a lot of other award shows at all but the oscars. I watch every single year. It's an event you know it's fun to watch. Even if i hate all of the movies which is sometimes the case that they just pick like the criteria just doesn't make sense to me sometimes like these artsy fartsy like movies will sometimes win for no reason. According to me but again like what criteria are they using. I don't know maybe you just don't have any taste. No that's definitely. I love in bruges. It's a great movie. Don't try to get out obligation. But what do you think from east perspective because when you look at the movies just as you know. Let's just do a one to one here. It's pretty clear. Even without knowing the exact criteria it's movies of this category but for east. There's just it feels like it's not as black and white. There's just so many different games. What is even considered an e sport. Technically speaking like. I don't even know the answer that question. That's the thing i mean. I guess the analogy of the comparison is really good though because in movies. There's also like it's super subjective. Right like what do you consider. A good movie is very different. From one person to the next head would be considered true. I suppose what it's defined as an eastport is a game that yeah but how many how big of a following doesn't need to have how significant to the price does need to be if i host a tournament in prague for one hundred bucks on eastport best escort because then then a lot of things could have won but now i i don't know what the criteria is and i think that's what we're probably agreeing on right now is that Maybe maybe are transparent about it. I just haven't seen it. I'm not saying that's not the case But yeah. I don't even know what sport is because like you said if it's just money than short that's anything could be in eastport if it needs to be x. amount of player base and have tournaments consistently running like whatever the case may be but either way. I like the idea of it. The fact that this is. I believe the fifth year in a row that their continued to do it is cool people show up to the event. There were ranked tuxes. They're trying to make it. That's where i don't like it. Actually they're trying to make it to. I don't know if mainstream is the right word but they're just trying too hard to copy everybody else like just let people show up in fucking sweatpants like were gamers man. Nobody wants to wear a goddamn suit. Unless you're a fucking psychopath syndrome okay. Being honest a lot of people do like dressing up on occasion. I think they don't like having to wear a uniform. It's like that all the time but for special occasions i think people like to do something extra like but honestly now that you it. I think it would be super cool if our award shows had people show up and team jerseys of their favorite team instead of in tuxes right. I think it'd be cool
Live not by Lies and the Danger of Soft Totalitarianism
"Four describes. How after throwing. Peter jon jail for teaching and proclaiming. Jesus the resurrection of the dead. The san hadrian demanded they not speak or teach at all in the name. Of jesus peter bluntly replied we cannot help but speak about what we have seen in hurt throughout history. Of course. Christians have faced demands to be silent throughout history. They've refused the word martyr. In fact is derived from the greek word that means witness and live not by lies a manual for christian dissident blogger and author. Rod dreher thinks that christians in the west are now entering a season. Not only have to decide whether or not we'll be silent. We have to decide whether or not we will allow ourselves to be forced to go along. With what is not true with lies like those who endured the hardest days of communist eastern europe western christians face a totalitarian future though he admits the totalitarianism talibanism of today is different. In a number of ways dreyer thinks it is still the correct word to describe the all encompassing ideologies of our day that seek to control not just our actions but our thoughts. Of course we don't face sort of state sponsored violence persecution or physical coercion. That many many others have throughout history. One doesn't end up in a gulag for criticizing the new sexual orthodoxy or for refusing to use the demanded pronouns but some have lost jobs. Some have lost future. Some have lost their degree programs. Others like cake artist jack phillips or floors bear. No stutzman have all but lost their livelihood in our current context. What dreyer calls soft atallah. -tarian ism is mostly administered. Not by the state but by corporations and other institutions that are run by managerial elites are social media profiles our smartphones and our smart speakers provide these managerial elites in corporations with an unprecedented ability to monitor what we say in what we do. China which is also an expert of course in hard to tolerate. -tarian ism is an example of how soft -tarian could proceed especially their social credit system which determines who's allowed to buy to sell to travel based on their social behavior here even as more instruments of technological surveillance or put into place an additional layer of enforcement comes from corporate america and our recent conversation for the breakpoint podcast rod dreher pointed to the corporate reaction to indiana's religious freedom restoration. Act that dates back to two thousand and fifteen. He sees it as a key moment of cultural transition. I do too though. Indiana's legislation was essentially identical to its federal counterpart corporations responded by threatening economic sanctions. Some corporations closed down offices in the state. The ncaa which is based in indianapolis threatened to move the final four basketball tournament and then when the christian owners memories pizza expressed support for the measure they were bombarded with negative online reviews and even had to close down temporarily because of all the threats of violence during the controversy a man whose mother had grown up under the hard to teheran ism of communism wrote to roger and told him that his mom saw parallels to what had happened in eastern europe since then many others from across europe told their own observations. Many of these moving stories are included in the book. In fact the interviews with christians who remain faithful under communist tyranny. That rod includes in. This book are worth reading. Even if you aren't convinced by his comparisons between their day hours above all these dissidents such as father thomas loft colaco vic a jesuit priest. Who was responsible for an underground church network and czechoslovakia. Have a great deal to teach us about what it means to live. Not by lies. We have much to learn from the bender family from prague about how to categorize our own children when everything it seems as pointing them away from the truth and we have much to learn from people like russian christian dissident alexander. Oh garage knockoff. And of course sultanate's in an hovel and so many others will go down in the annals of church history many as

It realized this at some point that if it could somehow take over the world, that would be a whole lot of more paper clips in the future than if it just keeps running this single paper factory, so it done has an instrumental reason to place itself in a better position to take over the world.

you know again going back to my years in plain I hate to make reference but it would be a lot of the burdens of the coach again Sir and the fact that which had always try to manage a personality I think about you know our group are great years you're here Charlie garner Tim brown Jerry rice Jerry Porter all you got well one of the ball never receive a laptop to feel just like you're twenty around is that is retired career I was triple covered by was open he said he got me the ball so this is not going to be different you don't have to try to find ways of peas and of course we've seen in the past when he doesn't get his way what he refers your alley acts he doesn't do that for a year later how how much did it help having guys like Tim brown and Jerry rice establish veterans on that team to help corral the personalities held because guys like Jerry rice and Jim Brower leaders by example they would go out there and show you how is this time show you how you can get the crowd cheering about I cheer for you show you how you can build big time plays a big time situations become a superstar how to be the best and he held a lot of young guys learn from that this team for the most part and until recently has been to avoid a lot of veteran maturity and American experience it's been a young team trying to grow in the song now they've got their issues where they've got to manage both you and experiments now some of the names we mentioned we are finally put all that together the answer to see how much they follow god like drive away you know Antonio brown or how much you try to stay away from do their own things biggest question mark for this team going in the nineteen yes ma'am of course well I was thinking I would think it was I who talked about you know how do you deal with adversity if you have such a unique mix you know the guys you know have been successful programs like turn brown knowing what we used to what is your sense of how do you deal when you don't you know how do you deal with the fact that you don't want as much or you're not as successful you know I mean things like that how do you deal with that bursary does it affect you did you did that affect your play of the affected metal segments of the big things is known what the the transition of becoming a writer or be in a later I want to transition into the defensive side of the ball because I think it's very interesting so as we talk about guys like Cleveland feral and Jonathan neighbor would expect from the Rockies this year on the raiders announce on that's on the ball for the raiders I'm expecting production to be away to where you can see some growth increase in death last year they had some playmakers their comma research played well Sam all played well we use in our computer oszyce at play well when he was in there but there wasn't a consistency yeah hole at the defense of the the the the steeper distraught Bobby are left to right and for what it's worth already he is a very explosive explosive player but he's more of a nickel past Russian and every day on day and an every down player sold out quickly unfurl that's reason why these happen the number for that's why they made the transition to go there to got to get an every down player and you got to create that because they're really kind of the defense a lot so I'm expecting you know this time you know governor Havel of some players are you can bet he told me that he could trust we don't have a lot that last year you can rely on I think this is going to make six what's what what's going to make a successful season for the raiders because as I look at the schedule as we had alluded to earlier in the conversation the AMC Wes is actually jam packed a one of a kind of season rivers gonna have the Chargers Pat my home is a rockstar Casey but overall the AFC west not a very easy division so I'm just wondering what's a successful season for the raiders before the departs and city to me I got to try to beat your practical about it the raiders won four games last year if they can tell that when told I think you're on the right course anything less than that it's been you know a couple seasons I'm sure a lot of raider fans would like to see files but Hey first give me a winter minutes talk about the chancel wildcard playoff because you've got to mention two very strong together teams in my opinion the cancer the chiefs and Chargers so you know they they've got their stuff all together they got defenses that they can work around that's a real tall hill for the raiders requirement thank you so much for the time Sir is always great to catch up with you I hope to a talk with you throughout the NFL season reporter would you be well that's one of my favorites of all

"Most important, right? I'm just saying like last year we knew when bears were good that the flexes were coming this year that late in the year. They're already playing a lot of prime time games. Yeah. It to me. It's juicy schedule. It predicted. Nobody knows before draft. Who's team's going to be good? You don't even know by we ate usually who's really good. Yes. But like to me, it's a it's a schedule full of great opponents. It's a scheduled full of cool road trip. Yes. It's a scheduled full of nationally televised games. I love it. Yeah. Look at it looks not only does it look difficult challenging it looks peeling on a number of different ways.

I gotta tell you Prague and Budapest a lot of American sleep on those cities. Absolutely gorgeous. Like, I would say even prog is like the Paris of the mid west of Europe as far as my little, you know, I didn't get to see too much of it. But just. You know, driving from the airport looking at it was like both of those cities were were breathtaking and. Stupid computer keeps shutting down here. Anyways. I watched the rest of pappy onto the original one. When I came back when I flew back man that was fucking incredible. And then I watched this two hour documentary, which I forget what it was called. About the cross fit championships in it, mainly focused on the women and stuff like that. And you know, what like I said earlier where I could be wrong about our. Our foreign policy. I think I was wrong about crusted. Watching what those people were able to do physically. But as an old man watching it. I'm just going like, I don't know how long these people's bodies are going to last doing that. All of those fucking squats and all of that shit with all all I was thinking knees and shoulders knees and shoulders, you need those for the rest of your life. However, I think stem cell research is going to get to the point where everyone's all the religious ship is going to go by the wayside to just have the fucking knees and shoulders of an eighteen year old when you're sixty I'm telling you right now, there is going to be some fucking jacked older people. In the future. I got a buddy money at a torn rotator Cup, and he got that shit injected in there, and he doesn't even have scar tissue. It's fucking crazy. Twice sound like a crazy person right now, I'm talking about foreign policy and fucking stem cell research. This is this is all jetlag, Billy. He's all over the fuck and map. All right.
