Watch over you protect you. Make up by samuel. Everyone take a moment to say a prayer for sam who got into an accident this past weekend and swipe up to visit his family's go fund me and when you swipe up the goal for the medical bills with sixty thousand dollars so immediately twitter was kinda sent into a frenzy of people saying you know why kylie jenner. Who's the billionaire asking for her fans and followers to help support this goal of sixty thousand dollars. That is basically packaged share. I will say from what i saw on twitter. A lot of people thought that this was her direct makeup artist and friend arielle which it's not as more acquaintance but anyway that was the initial reaction. I'm sure you all saw that a little bit after that. Tmz came out with an article. That says quote. We're told there's a misconception at sixty k. figure everyone's quoting the original target amount for this go fund me when it first launched with ten thousand dollars and our sources say kylie's five thousand dollar donation. Put it over the top as it was already six thousand dollars at the time since then. The targeted has ballooned likely because of the attention kylie brought it by posting the link on her instagram story. Then i mean just within the last hour kylie made a story and said i feel. It's important for me to clear up this false narrative that ask fans for money and i'm not paying for a makeup artist medical bills. Sam isn't my makeup artist. Unfortunately we don't have a personal relationship anymore. But i've worked with him a few years ago and think he's the sweetest. I saw my current makeup artisan friend arielle.

"And it is February 25th. We are back. Today is Thursday. We have an absolute ton of stuff a poll ethra an avalanche wage things to share with all of you. But before I hit the record button Joe and I were just talking, you know, what not being political here at all, but I completely and totally understand why in some wage States the teachers don't want to go back to don't want to go back to work. I completely and totally sympathize with them. And again, I'm not trying to be political and you know and all that because listen a lot of the young artists included they've gone partially feral. Yes a little Savages. It's poor teachers man, or maybe the poor kids. I don't know I suppose it depends on your school. I know the teachers. Can you imagine right man? They're going to pay for essential a Year's worth of children losing all grips of reality and how they're supposed to be wild. Yeah. So anyway, so if you're a teacher no one teacher out there as kids birth. To go back to school, you know, we all have to basically support our teacher Community. Julie's parents were retired teachers, I guess in a strange way. Julie and I are teachers as well. But our thoughts are people are completely feral. They're just partially feral AKA real estate agents. Well, that's true. Yeah exactly but night but not like a bunch of seven-year-olds. Can you imagine? Oh my goodness. I know right now. It's worth scary. So today, we're going to finish up the points. We started the other day yesterday rather and we were talking about why it's absolutely critical you become the listing agent. But before we do, we have a special actually Julie wanted to share with this thought you guys Michelle McClintock who is a coach for us. She was and I think still has probably regarded in the nation as the number one. I would say primarily short sale Specialists expert she's helped setups short sale programs for banks seems to work directly with the major services and lenders. She was integral part of our team back in the real estate crisis, and she still a great job. And of ours also a past coaching client to and she sent Julie a message that all of you guys need to know about and just be aware of yes. And so you guys should know by now that we're very committed to letting you know from the front lines exactly what's happening when it's happening so that you can be prepared to not be surprised by anything. So let's get into Michelle's email. So again, you set my shop as absolutely somebody that we can track stuff cuz she's in the front lines. Okay. So hi, Julie, hope you guys are doing well. We're starting to see more and more short sales creeping into the marketplace. I have 14 new short sales.

ACCC and Google come to blows over new media bargaining laws
"So if you logged onto google or any associated Google service in the last couple of days is a pretty good chance. You're saying what registered as I guess a kind of warning sign like an aerosol raid it and it's actually Google telling you that you could expect dramatically worse google searches and Youtube responses if the triple say push something through nephew not familiar the I triple says of. Course the consumer watchdog, and if you look at it with context, it's actually quite confusing. What is under threat? So Reo Bogle, what is it? The Google are concerned about six a few years ago. The say embarked on this journey this investigation looking at the impact that facebook and Google in particular what they call digital platforms the impact they've had on journalism here in Australia, and what's happened is there was sent a basically ask Google and facebook negotiate with media here in Australia some of the Big Publishes News Corp Nine Fairfax All the rest to negotiate and try and come up with a way to share profits I suppose off the benefit the Google. facebook get from the media. Those negotiations didn't really pan out and so now they've been forced into sort of bargaining position and a triple C. wants as well as these companies to share some sort of revenue with news publishes here in Australia they want a few other things so they want for example. Google and Facebook to give media publishes twenty eight days. Notice if they're going to change their sort of algorithms in a way that might affect display news. So you can think about Google news when you search for a new story, the way that it displays on the Google News. Tab Are they also want some other things? It's it's all around. Crying to clawbacks a path, a media publishes and potentially some cash and I think what troubles Google here and probably why they've gone so hard is it would be a world I in a way would set a precedent and so they're really doing a full court press. Harassing you on Google and Youtube in on twitter and all the other places. Trying to stir up its base. To fight. This quite vague still code with quite vague still threats from Google. What good was done is they've said, hey, we want you to be worried like we want you to fight for an they've really like they've put the warning sign. That's already like you know makes you feel a way that said that free services may be at risk they say like your personal data maybe affected all these things that. As, an individual I hit your your emotional buttons but the actual specific date of lacking and that's important because they. worked out yet and the triple say said in their sponsorship, we'll get to in a second. I'm sure. But you know they say this is an ongoing process like we are still waiting to hear from all sides we want and we haven't finalized the code but you know Google has really jumped on this nephews this I guess the fact that it is undecided to. In a sense, you know fee mongers I will we don't know exactly what is yet, but it could be anything anything. It's scary. But in what why would the colored as we currently understand it damage the quality of search results like Connecticut I, actually quantify that with anything like with a practical example have google offered any practical examples. One example that people have raised to me is that you need to be a media publisher of a sense sized to bargain full stop. So I think you need to have a revenue over maybe one hundred, twenty, grand, one, hundred, fifty, grand you need to have news media as your business you need to employ journalists. And the argument that's been made to me is that if some publishes are privileged enough to get saying notice of an algorithm change that they would exploit that knowledge and it would push then publishes to the top over smaller ones and so that that could affect search results. That would prejudice small independent publishes. and. So I can see how that's an issue especially for small publishes but how it affects Google search results. From Google perspective I'm curious about why they think that's such a bad thing why they feel that people would be fearful about that outcome

So great to have you. Here, thank you. We're really excited to talk about a mood. It's such an interesting and important project. I'll give a little bias in that. I'm really interested in this in particular because I've been on the board of Sfar for many years, which is the issue of the Torah Academy, the Talmud Academy for lgbtq folks are that comes out of the Experience Lgbtq Q. Folks. It's probably a better way to say it and. When I first heard about a mood I was so excited to hear that there was something that seemed similar from edge use of color perspective. So it's something that I've really wanted to explore for a long time that both of us have and and we're really thrilled to finally have this opportunity. So Mirror I was wondering if we could start with a little bit of the origin story of a mood. In, two, thousand, eighteen, I was invited to be in the Selah Cohort fifteen of bend the arc four juice of color by Jews of color and there I met Ya McCoy will meet her the year previously. And part of that training. Was a study that we that she called. J O C. Tour Academy. And it was several afternoons where we would look text from an anti oppression lands, and at the end of that hurt I was sitting with you who the webster was hard the cohurt. We looked at each other and I said, why does this have to be only part of this training? We need this to be real, and so we started talking with start talking about that. So that was may of two, thousand eighteen. By June or July. Are Corman had come back from Israel at, pass it to you. I did a fulbright year in Israel I live in. Jerusalem and when it came back, I became involved in. J. Fridge which is to cherish on economic justice. And Colored. Caucus. Part of my involvement. J.. Fridge I was connected to Huda Webster An. I approached you Huta saying that I wanted to teach a small class on the politics of Hebrew pronunciation and I wanted to teach it for Jews of color of an Alexi that you're smiling because acid is immensely nerdy deeply nerdy. Added belts deeply important but you huda one up to me and he said what if instead of just having your class, we actually create a container for this kind of learning to happen more often. and. So that really launched the idea of. Jesus, Colored Tour Academy, which became a mood colored tour academy and we started out by a every other week having a person in the community, a Jewish person of color in a community teach whatever they wanted and we we started her first Beta run I'm really got to see what what kinds of topics were interesting. How did the groups of people showed up for different topics differ in and we basically got to conduct all this research We launched our first full year after the high holidays. This past fall in two thousand nineteen. And we just completed our first full year of classes. We got here because for as long as there have been Jewish. People color navigating predominantly white Jewish space the roots have been growing and deepening. People like you. Huda. Myself were able to found something like this because of all that work that had been happening. JESSOP. Color entering wet Jewish is being Jewish spaces and also getting to know one another.

"I don't know who I'm talking to it's. Weird. So anyway. So this guy Kevin Cronin. Who is lead singer? Who Left in the Liangelo? He left the band it, too, but he returned in nineteen seventy six That's going to be important in a second so in November of nineteen eighty. The band released the album. Hi, infidelity! NICE ALBUM TITLE! That's nice. It featured four top forty six. including. Keep on, loving you so good Kevin Cronin that hit number one and take it on. The run was written by. Gary Rich Wrath net that peaked at number five. The album spent thirty two weeks in the top ten. Yeah so is. It was a big hit for this, and this was their big breakthrough. They had been going along. They were doing fine in the seventies. But this you know it's one thousand nine hundred and now they're really breaking through. which is set for a ban that started in nineteen sixty six right? They have their through in one thousand nine hundred eighty s right. They start with it. was that you know if you don't put the pictures of the band on the album? Nobody knows how old they are right. That's another thing, too. Where they kind of it's true. Stay anonymous. Because yeah I mean they were older, but that point. I would say that they were in college and sixty six. They gotta be at least in their mid thirties by nineteenth, so which businesses they might as well be two hundred. Obviously, that's not like thirty. Five is not the end of the world bite, you know if you're if you're pitching yourself. As like were perpetually twenty two. You know you're not gonNA you're not, GONNA. Be Fooling anybody at that point, so yeah, but if you know if you just have a spaceship on your. Spacious spaceships or ageless right exactly you know the difference, but this is also just pre MTV. So, I, it's funny. You mentioned that because the next bullet point here is technically. The video for this song was the ninth video ever played on MTV. But it only played for twelve seconds in the screaming black video never came back so. So only of seconds of this video played the in the knife video overplayed. Was this video and then it turned off now which is would you be heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend who heard it from? Exactly heard what you heard. What did they here? We'll never know. So I read the oral history of MTV, I think it's called. I want my MTV and There is a lot about the first night of MTV MTV and it was a disaster. So that it's not surprising, so the story went that. I was MTV's offices were in New York. but MTV was not on the cable system in Manhattan so they had traveled to like the like ours outside the city like the middle of Jersey to get to the first place where they could watch MTV night. It premiered so is like the. The executives and stuff so they they were in some bar in the middle of New Jersey, and it starts playing and so they they did a thing where they had like the VJ's Dj's, and it was all prerecorded. Obviously, so they would be like all right. Coming up next is taken on the run and then like Belinda Carlisle. We'll play or whatever. But it was all out of order, and so apparently like it was a nightmare behind the scenes like everything was breaking other right, so the executive runs to the payphone and and calls the station and is like. Hey, you guys are playing these in the wrong order like the VJ segments and the. Music videos are out of order. You GotTa fix that and the guy. The phone went. Oh, okay, hold on. Hey! Guys were on the air. And so. Yeah yeah he was. He was exciting because they didn't think they were on the air. That's how bad it was. Really. And then they stopped playing music altogether, so it's fine well. That was all downhill from there and having later, but yes. Reo speedwagon continued to have success in the eighties including another number. One hit can't fight this feeling. In which is an amazing song? Yeah Yeah. which this is what I was gonNA say earlier is when we were talking about just like their rhyme scheme. Stuff like that song is a perfect example of that like the internal rhymes, the the the course that's on his. I can't fight this feeling anymore. I've forgotten what I started fighting for. It's time to bring the ship into the shore and throw away the oars forever. Like so good! Like an each one's a perfect rhyme, their. Way To. Go Rich Wrath. That was Kevin Cronin I didn't write it down. But if I remember I believe that was Kevin Cronin. WHO also wrote? Keep on loving you so. He was he was doing good. I, mean you know two number one hits can't can't argue with that. Okay so what I did do was I realized. This song hit number five. May Thirtieth Nineteen eighty-one I said Oh, early eighties charts, they're going to be weird, so. I looked at their weird so number five was taken on the run number four was something called Sukey Jaki. By a taste of honey.

"By so. Was At studio musicians or well. Okay, so so our ESP wagons formed at the University of Illinois in nineteen, sixty six. Night by guitarist, Neal doughty and Drummer Alan Grasser I not other people because by the time Reo speedwagon was. We're long gone so those two guys were were in the bad for most of it, and they were kind of the core They were just a bar and party ban they played covers it local frat parties. You know it was like a college bad The name came from There was a nineteen fifteen truck Call the REO speedwagon. Although I think it's actually pronounced, REO speedwagon but I. Don't think they knew that. The speedwagon. But. There was a name a truck. Nineteen fifteen truck called the the REO speedwagon doughty had seen it written on a blackboard in his history of transportation class in college. Just thought it was a cool name. That's how they got the name for the band was his major. I don't know, but I think University Illinois kind of engineer. Okay, so yeah, yeah, and they were and they basically like they were more of the kind of like I, like guitar, but I'm. I'm a decade like I like. Take my amp apart. It seemed like that kind of thing. where it was Kinda, they were more into the technical side, a statue so the band went through numerous lineup. Changes just they were hanging out. There were a local band until Gary Rich Wrath joined in nineteen seventy. He saw the band and was quoted later as saying I was going to be part of that band whether they liked it or. That is. So rich village. There's a better way to say that yeah. He was a prolific songwriter and with him aboard the band had fresh new material the place, so that's sort of the feeling got this Guy Gary retract was like. I'm writing these songs I need a band. That's going to play them. This is my brand, a force my way in like he love of Reo speedwagon he grew up with these guys like oil went to college got. He's like this is my way to like. Get my songs out there so he basically forced his way in and so he joined the matter nineteen, seventy eight, the band was signed to epic records in Nineteen, seventy, one as I mentioned between was that. was that their first record deal? Yes okay, yeah I. Major League well. So, between nineteen, seventy, one and I seventy nine, the band released eight albums. During that time they had numerous lineup changes in fact, no two albums at the same lineup that included three lead singers, and that included a lead singer change in the middle of an album oh. My God! They recorded half the I'm with one lead singer. Who Was Kevin Cronin He left the band. They got another lead singer to to do the second half. So what did rich wrath do? Well that's the best name is did what did Gary Rich Wrath do? was he a guitarist a? Keyboardist. So, he wasn't sitting here. Obviously he was. No No, you imagine like buying that album and listening to it and then you turn. Decide to, and you're just like why. But that's the thing I was like they were you know there was a trend of that time late seventies early eighties with the band's very generic. You didn't know like you know thinking something like Boston. We're like there's no pictures of the band Oh. Yeah, there is there is a whole group of bands that it was just like logos, and and that means spaceships. And a lot of times like a bad like Boston again like that was the one guy cameras name right now but that was the one that was the one guy right he was Boston, and basically the rest of the band was like studio musicians. And your yeah, and you know, and so and like you know it was just like it again. It was more like a corporation sort of thing where he was like I. Am Boston this the music i. put out and but but it's not like. Da Band Band in fact, this is with a lot of it, too, and this is like a pretty cometh. People will talk about, but one reason why people were kind of cycling in and out. Was that like you know? One member of the band was making like forty percent of the prophets, and the and the other person was making ten percent like they had a very corporate structure of like I'm like I'm your manager. Kind of thing you know what I mean and like, and I make more money than us and I get three votes, and you get one. And so it just like it wasn't a like. Hey, again like the sort of feeling of like hair on this together now that is something that like I learned early on Righteous, just assumed like we're on this together. Where a band and we all split the money and I found out like that's actually not really true like. A hierarchy, and like the money split usually is in. Fair. and. I mean like like George. Harrison wrote songs about that in the Beatles because he was so pissed that he got less money than then Paul and John maybe. Yet you never give me your money that song. It's to palm cart. All right. That's fair so anyway. So yeah so anyway. So so Kevin Coroner's I mentioned was the leasing who left in the middle of the album. They got another lead singer. Would before Oh what I was gonna say was was that, but that's the thing I don't know if you wouldn't even notice because it was so sort of like. A certain way of doing things like you know, it didn't personal stamp to it in a way, so. Even though there was another lead singer side be i. don't know if you would have even noticed it if you had bought the album, but sorry Michael Zoning. No I'm just sort of fascinated by that that Trend in I guess mostly like seventies and early eighties of those bands that were basically a logo and spaceship artwork, and there were a lot of them. was. Was it like I? Mean even like? CHICAGO, who was huge was all their album covers our logos and their album titles are. The number of the album that it is. I mean. was there. Is there a name for that. John Rao Michael I don't know. There should be yeah. I mean spaceship. Fans! Right because it was a lot of that sort of like fantasy, I can. Yeah Yeah. I even had that. Yeah, I mean that's and that's the thing I. don't really know I. Don't really have a good reason why it just start. A was the trend rate and I think and I think that was sort of the start of the sort of corporate rock thing again where it was I, mean in Chicago's example where they were like they were a completely different like blues, Band Right, and then all of a sudden one day. It's like pizza terrorist like Oh, by the way this is my band. Now are doing pizza Tara socks. There is output suitable ely different than anything else. They were doing, but. It's just the name like the name is popular, and so we'll just right now. Pizza Tara going to use this as my vessel for my. Tara music. Call Chicago, but it sounds like some sort of. Like a religion, right? Sotero music is going to be. This is going to tear out. Oh, did you hear about her? Though she said -Tarian now she's a -tarian now. She shaved her head and she won't talked to anyone. It's really sad. anyway I always get them confused with Paul. Marion's who follow. Robert Palmer and SLEEK MAG hair and tied flight chances. Yeah, it's weird. Says Yeah I. Would've thought Pomeranians where Fans Peter Paul and Mary Yeah. Album. Peter Marion's their experience there an off shoot. The Marion. They're not as crazy, but I just can't come apart..

And it hit number five on the hot one hundred so in researching reo speedwagon. It's a little weird, because and you know. Every every bands a little different. This doesn't this doesn't mean that. Their output is any lesser than anyone else's band, but you kind of got the feeling. They were less abandoned more of like a corporation. Right, Is while I'm going to go through, but one thing is. And this little further down the aisle, talking about in a second, but I think they recorded eight albums between nine, hundred, seventy, one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, nine, and not one two albums the same lineup. Interesting Yeah. What did they age out like Nudo? Came in and out, they were just kind of like Oh you know all right I'm going to be your basis for like this one album, and then I'm going to leave like so it was kind of more and also talking about more, but it just sort of was Kinda more like a vessel for. Certain songwriters Kinda right there signs, and like have a way of getting out there and it didn't feel like. Oh, he's like. Hey, we're a band. We're in this together like we love each other, but we also hate each other band thing. It was just more of like Oh. This is my Gig you know. Does this just just researching?

Call your girlfriend thing that we could. I call your girlfriend is going to be one that we keep going back to. It could be well, you know the thing is like there's like one third of the songs. Do our about cheating yet? So all those quickly like well it could be. This president can be that person because out. There cheating on probably all the same person. Maybe maybe. She's leaving on the weekend to burn someone's house down about to say yeah it always if there's a woman involved she always. The end of it, so yeah, what about this and hear me out on this one? She's gone all weekend because she's a nightclub singer. And maybe it is maybe she's not cheating. She just wants a career yet so wrong. Right. Race cheating on him with her career.

"But? Yeah, he's. The relationships over yeah right. She left and but I think also. It's I. Mean my minor was mean he might be saying allowed, but this is more like if you've ever gotten to like a huge fight with someone, and then you keep replaying it in your right over got. He's just sort of thinking about like. You know ten minutes ago I was in a relationship with a woman I loved, and now she's gone and I'm just sorta like replaying like how this started. You know, and and and so i. think that's what it is, and he's just sort of rethinking that again and again and again and his head. Has as she's gone now, he's all alone. In the apartment and is only friend. Is that bank teller who he does? He's like you know what I will take another group your lolly. Okay call the root, beer. Can I ask the people that charms why why root beer get combat harnessing takeaway? Dum dums! Oh dumb dumbs. You're right. I also had a had a rip here, but you're right dumped the little ones right? Okay, then the Dumdum Corporation why. Why are you even making it? Was it just? To have filler for people to give away. You know what I mean like. Was it just like the punish the bad kids like I? Don't understand it even exists listen. Do you remember St Flavor where they would just take the remnants of the flavors, and this is just going to be this I guess they literally would take whatever was leftover, actually together for the mystery flavor. This has this has nothing to do with with the episode but I'm pretty sure what the mystery flavor is is on the on the line they would. They would switch obviously between flavors and so yesterday. Flavor is the mix between the flavor ending and the flavor of their starting so even. If it's Cherry, then root beer somewhere in between. It's going to be cherry root beer. That's your mystery flavor. That's why he always different. That's why it's a mystery flavor. The the first hundred lollipops are the mystery flavor after they switch over. You're just GONNA make some money off of it. They couldn't let it go. They can give them away. While I was GONNA say well in market, the hell out of them, they had the mystery. Flavor is like the remnants of whatever's leftover, so you're right that like probably quality control, not really big the DUB DUB corporation. Safely say I. Just don't understand who thought it was a good idea. That's my question. Who is like the okay? Here's our flavors cherry grape root beer. Did you just say route? Who wants a root beer kid? I've ever seen root beer candy ever and. Lollipop or whatever it is using any root beer. Barrels root beer barrels. At the Penny the Penny Candy store. Because I'm eighty years old. and. I I vaguely aware that that's the thing, yeah. I mean I feel like? The dumb. Maybe you should've retired. That's all I'm saying. Why don't they don't put those in like the commercial packs those are just for those are the ones that get shipped directly to banks and Barbara. Yep that's right. You can't get those in the store you gotTA. You gotTA. Go Bang for that. Yeah group here here. All right. Yeah, so anyway. This woman left him. All all he has left. lollipops! Just has like bowls and bowls steals from the bank. This is amazing. I've never bought a lollipop or a pen in my life. I just keep going in a bank. I do want to say that I I assume this episode was US going to be tired about how insane this guy is, but I'm actually impressed. You guys really You really interpreted the song away that that makes sense. I think there's still a little choppy. Yeah there's a couple of word choices that maybe make it a little confusing but I think we got there I think we got there. He's he doesn't want to believe. It's true, and I think I think he's laying that part on thick. Because as he's coming like so he's been thinking about this all day. This fight is coming right. because. He heard this rumor everybody in town saga about it. He's got to confront her about it, so he's Kinda slow playing. Look. I don't think it's real. But this is what, but this is what I'm hearing and he's watching her face and he sees that yet. No, she's not like what it's real easy. Of course not. She's just like Okay so then he starts he you know. He already knew it was true. He just didn't want to believe it, but then he can't hide from it anymore. Once that happened so that then he's like, and then he gets mad. He's like I. It's still weird though where he's like. Keep this in mind. You're definitely cheating on me, but I don't believe it. It's all about somebody who can't fight this feeling anymore. Oh! Gosh. I meet I mean also. Maybe she's leaving him just because like she's like I can't. I can't keep it straight. You change your mind on things every ten seconds. We was like look I just WanNa have Chinese tonight. I about it all day, but also I want pizza and I hate Chinese food, and why on Earth would we? Chinese food wants pizza, but also I love Chinese. It's the best. It's great and she's like. I can't take this anymore. It's every conversation. This is every conversation. It's like having. It's like dealing. Dr Jekyll Mr Hyde I kick it. Kick in straight while you're doing anymore. Like dating Dr, Jekyll and Mr Hyde without the murder. Yeah, well a little murder. Okay anything else on the song. Yeah, I. Just want to congratulate you. Guys because I did not think that it was possible. have more than one episode of this podcast in which we talked extensively about the Dumdum Lollipop Corporation. And here we are look I spent a lot of time thinking. Not Galati about that. Simpson Rodney. Sponsored dumps. The second episode in which we've done that. I just remember. I just remember whether I was I. Don't know the dentist or a doctor's office or something. Is this a lollipop story about the dentist? Dentists I used to go to the dentist while that's my teeth terrible. But Yeah, no, I you know I remember. The first sight taken the wrapper off popping my mouth. Like, 'cause I also hate root beer. Just the drink so I know that some people like it. That's a personal thing I do not so popular that sucker my mouth. Being like what are taking it out and then looking the rapper being like. Why this fearing this might not like. I'm eating. Who makes a route pair lollipop like it? Just? It was insane to me. You know it wasn't like there's certain flavors like raspberry, but I understand why. There's a raspberry candy, and what is rally resume lollipop shore, but of route beards I. Don't it just was like why? Why does this even exist? Man? Anyway See! Many sewed the conspiracy on root. Beer! I? Don't think I'll ever get over it. Okay, let's do. Let's do. Expanding Universe so obviously, she's going to the cheating side of town. But I mean is the other half of lying is. Like is this when it finally all blows up on could oh could be yeah. Yeah, this is when she returns from the cheating side of town and confronts her. Yeah, you can't hide your bedroom eyes or your lying eyes. or You are white lies. Oh my gosh. I'm bought in on. That one.
"reo" Discussed on The Story Song Podcast
"Onto to. JUMP BACK To where we're talking about before. Because, he says. You're thinking. You're white lies. You're putting on your bedroom. Is You say you're coming home, but you won't say went. So remember before and he was like they say you stay out of every night, so he knows there's something going on. Yeah, because he says you're thinking of your white lies, so this is not a surprise to him. But before it was before, he didn't anything about it, and he didn't believe it, but now he's saying you're thinking of your white lines. This is in the confrontation because I'm assuming that he is like the first verse he's He's heard these things, and he's coming to confront her with them, and now he's through that weird. you know. That crazy chorus where he comes to the realization that she has done this then he's, he's come to that realization, so the second verse is basically him saying like. Oh, now I see you. You're sitting there. Making up white lies. Putting on your bedroom is, but there's no way you're coming home we could. He could also probably after that whole conversation see on her face. She's yeah thinking of white lies that she's. She's like trying to salvage this. It's it's it's the. Scene for mommy dearest, it's wanted a little extra publicity. He's like. She's. Trying to think of reasons. that. That! She cheated on him and trying to salvage it. And I think it's also again I mean I. Don't WanNa Heart Bonnet but this is like the stages of grief, because by the end of this, he's just come to the acceptance that she's not coming home that this is real and you're not coming home right. and. I do have one quick question. Are they face timing? He says you're putting on your bedroom is and then says you say you're coming home, but you won't say when so issued there or not now. She says she's coming. She's coming home, but you won't say when. They're talking than she is home. Maybe he might not be home, right? You may have confronted or some out. This is all happening at the bank. At her workplace. No, here's here's that Ben Taylor's like this juicy. Talk about to call my friend WHO'S GONNA call his friend and I. Don't know who here's what I think. It is I think it's that she. This is a Saturday at like. Eight o'clock right? They've just had dinner separately. He was in the kitchen. She was in the living room. She's getting ready. She's like Oh. I'm going out with Helen. And he says wait a minute. Just just gotTA. Figure something out I heard from somebody who that we heard from somebody? And then she's like has her hand on the DOORKNOB and he's like listen if you go out tonight, you're not coming home I. Know You're not coming home and so that's what it is is that he's? He's getting a right before. She leaves on her weekend date because they're not actually dating And so they are both home it it works if okay, no, that makes okay. That actually makes sense and that's actually. Like it better in the bank. But he's saying you're thinking of your white lies. You're putting on your bed. Reminds here's a problem now for him. Her bedroom is everybody else. Oh, see I thought she was putting on. Her bedroom is to sort of. That's what I thought I'm. His ears rewrite that she was like just go to pat and forget about this. But Right? She's putting. Her bedroom is for someone else I mean like like putting on her face like oh I'm putting on my face. No I'm saying. Like she's getting ready to. It but just, but he can see that because he knows what it looks like, but it's I see so not putting on makeup, but literally like she's getting her game face on. Right I mean it might. That might be part of it, but I think he can tell where she's like Oh. You know that's not true and just like you know. Yeah so you say you're put on your bedroom. Is You come home once they wed? Because then I can feel it coming because if you leave tonight. Keep running so if you leave tonight, you're going off with someone else. Don't bother coming back. Keep running, and you need never looked back again. Right and that line. I can feel it coming. Is it's it's? It's a very simple very small line, but it's so. It's I think I'm GONNA be sad. I think it's today in right right. Yeah, it's that that anticipation of he knows that. She's going to be on the run again. The other thing I want to say is this feels like he's playing both. Good and bad cop. Right in this conversation look I don't believe okay. My partner here is crazy. But I don't think it's true, and then he's like well actually I think it is true and whatever get back here again. Look if you if you have something to. Tell me because because my partner here is crazy. He thinks he did. I don't believe it not for any just turns on. Hey, turning left to right like those people who just like to dance with themselves. You! Couldn't see it, but I was actually moving around in my chair to be both people. Doing it right now, but yeah, so that's the other thing, too where I mean. Is that what it is where he's like trying to like elicit a confession by being like this is what? I know it's not true. Single lightbulb swinging. I think he's you want coffee. You want a cigarette or something before we get started. I think I think he's trying to figure it out himself so I think this. This conversation between the two of them is very stream of consciousness where he doesn't want it to be true, so he's saying that it's not true And everyone in the bank is like. Right Now so. True like Rachel's interpretation is is quite valid that like. Maybe it's at their house. Maybe there's she's getting ready to leave. Another argument for the bank. Is Okay, so the teller is is standing there at the counter. And he he sees this argument happening in the middle of the bank and he picks up the phone and he says todd. It's your friend Marvin. You remember that argument you're looking for will listen to this and he holds up the phone and. And then he tells a friend. Perfect I think we solved it I think. Yeah, so then he says. He never looked back again. To Take it on the run and that's what you WanNa Baby I. Don't want you around I. Don't believe it now for a minute. You're under the gun. C. Taken on the run. And he says, and then there is a seven and a half minute. Long, Guitar Solo. Right depending on what version you listen to yeah. Goes on for a while. Your car's covered times and then there's an altro. Without Tro, but it goes back to the beginning where he says heard it from a friend who? A from friend who order from another. Even messing around which I love I love the show and I do know the last time we had a song with now tro. What is it walking in Memphis. Wow, that's right. 'cause he does repeat the beginning. God that's well, and you know what I like about. The altro just picture him by himself like she just left out the door, and he just has one on the door, and his head is down and he says that altro. Sad Great Grand Uncle Reginald. And he's he. Oh, yeah, for for ritual..

"For like. Well that, too in front of like integrity like you're going to take your your, you know. Can't. There's a word that I can't think of but like your. You know you're GONNA. Take it on the run. You're going to be spreading it all over town whether it's either her integrity or something else right that we're not saying but yeah I mean I. think that's what it is and it's you said you're taking it on the run. You're not here home with me, but you're out there with other guys, but then so he he lays into her by saying you take it on the run, baby. If that's way, you want it baby I. Don't want you around and then the next line. He says I. Don't believe it. For a minute. What. I. Don't think it's true babe, but even if it is keep this in mind, you're totally cheating on me I. Know You are get the hell out of here by the way I don't believe it for a second. It is all over the place that yeah, this is the thing. This is the question I've had for thirty years. What the Hell is going on! What is you're talking about? Because the chorus does not not only did he just say I don't believe it, and then he says I do believe it, but as we've mentioned the keep this in mind. What he says next does not correspond to now so I don't know what's. Going on. Anybody how me, please. How. Excitedly about this? I think yeah I. Think the the problem is an. It's just that it fits in the song. When he says even if it is keep this in mind. Yeah, so if he took out the even. It would make more sense right I. Don't think it's true. But if it is true, keep this in mind. Right, that were a lot more sense. If. He said I don't think it's true, but if it is keep this in mind. So. I don't. I don't think it's true. If it is, we can't be together. Right I don't think it is so. I think he's going back and forth. Bud trying to make it not true, but he's. Maybe, but he says you take it on the run. It's he doesn't say if you take on or if you're out there together, you take it on the run. This is happening right and if that's you saying you take it on the run if that's the way you want it. Right, but he's saying you take it on the run. If that's the way you want it, then I don't want you around Oh. No, Michael saying it differently, he saying take it on the road. If that's how you want to take it on the if you WANNA, take it on the run. You take it on the run as opposed to you. He already knows you. Take it on the run. Yeah. That's the way you want it. It's you know it's the if you WANNA, go go. That's right. That's right can. I do go I. Don't want you around. Rachel saying I just want to say I am totally on board with this because I want this song to make sense but the amount of work that we needed to do. To make that happen. There's something very wrong here. That's on Reginald. Totally Adam Mitchell Rachel. Sorry, well I was just GonNa. Say I mean, and then I wanna get to the be the end of the chorus because. He. It almost sounds like the last line he's. Trying to make up excuses for her, so the first half of chorus is if that's way you want to do it if you take it on the run, then I don't want you around I. Don't believe it's true and then at the last line. He's like look. There's probably reasons that you're doing this. You'RE GONNA. Work at at the bank. So you know you take it on the run I mean. What are you going to do that last night? It comes out of nowhere. Yeah He. He's SORTA under the gun. Saying it's true. Telling her that he doesn't wanner in his life. Then he's denying it saying he doesn't believe it. And then he's rationalizing. It is true, but I get it and I think the second stage of great. This song. Yeah, absolutely he's! He's bargaining is everything. Yeah, I mean I think he's inventing new phrases that we're not familiar with I. Think what he's saying is with the. You're under the gun, so you take it on the run I. Think what he's saying is. You're feeling the pressure of being in this relationship and so you're purposely messing it up, so he's making it, so he's making his fault. will not his fault, but I think he's saying. That I like I mean the way I interpreted as he saying like this is what you do I. Yeah, yeah, totally like a psychological profile of her. The moment the moment you start getting close to someone you go out and cheat on them. Not Not because you care about that at all. 'cause you're attracted to other. Other. Other guy is just that you need to destroy this because you can open up right because once this gets to real you go out of your way to destroy. Yes, so that's what under the gun means like. You're feeling pressure, so you take it on the run. you go out into into it, so he's saying. Why can't you let yourself enjoy success? Why are you sabotaging? Something good. Let's talk about that for a few minutes, yeah! Oh my God. What if this is she's like? He's therapies. Like a hard love honor, how'd you meet in a therapy session? She was seeing another therapist and he's taken. Yet again because he's because he's, but he's so like you're. You'RE GONNA. Take on the like he's so understanding, but then he's like if that's what you want, it then I don't want you around. That is so harsh to not be like. Listen you know I can't be with you or like. We can work this out or I know this what you? He's like. Get outta here, but also I don't believe it but I to. Happening, what are you talking? You're all over the place. And she says. Do you understand why I'm cheating on, you know?.

"I saw a woman out with another guy I wouldn't when I'm at the bank at my job as a bank teller I wouldn't tell the hey by the way. I saw a girl who's cheating on her boyfriend. Who was a guy I do not know. WHY WOULD I? How would I know that she's doing I love that oh? That must be her boyfriend or husband or whatever I'll tell you. You've never been dot Taylor because there is gossip. Okay so he's now heard it through the grapevine. I mean Ab these th the first one, the song, actually the conversation with a girlfriend. where he says I heard it from a friend. She's like who. He said I heard it from a friend, and she says who. I from another. Era from another. You've been mentioned. Yeah, actually who you don't have friends. And that is the thing. Yeah, I mean that is. That's another thing. We always have to bring up.

So. Here's our question. They say you got a boyfriend that part of your. Your out late every weekend, so they say. You're out late every weekend, these people. That I don't know say that you're out late every weekend. How come! This guy doesn't know that she's out late every weekend if they are together. Wouldn't he be more aware of the fact that she's out of a weekend and not other random people in town? Why this is coming as news damn this. Look. This might be the type of thing where it. He thinks the relationship is much more than it actually is, and he's like well. We went for coffee on Tuesday a Tuesday. Coffee is not a date. You're not dating at that point. She sees you as a friend. If you're going out on the weekends with her late, she has a boyfriend and you're not it. Yeah and that's I do not disagree Rachel the problems. Everyone else's gossiping talent. So so not only is reginald delusional, but apparently the entire town is. All around him. I blamed. For that. But I can understand if he doesn't know that she has another boyfriend. And that's the reds going around, but how could he not why? When other people be aware of the fact that she's elated, he doesn't like well. They're saying that you were here with me. Watching TV on Saturday night. In town. That's true because later on. They say you're not home. You're not coming home here, so they live together. Yeah Weird Yeah. It's weird or the very early you know. Be Aware of each other's movements there there enough together. They would be aware of like you know. More or less what what's going on in their lives at any given moment? They're talking. They're talking about you. Bring me data. Neighborhood. I know the neighborhood. Talk is cheap and when the story is good, the tails grow taller on down the line. first of all. Grey Line Yeah just. Just scans yet. Rhyme just POPs. Man is great. Arly speedwagon is very good at that. Yeah, like their internal rhymes, and just like rhymes in general we can talk about it later but like. They? Yeah, they're really good at that. Yeah, they're rhyme. Scheming is pretty good way to go reo. Well. What's what's the? We'll talk about it later? Never forget I brought it up. So here. Here's what he's saying right so so far. Here's what we got. Hey listen I, heard I. heard this. Say GotTa Boyfriend Your. but look I know the neighborhood. Talk is cheap when story is good, and the tails grow taller that line, so maybe maybe I had coffee with some guy you know. And it was totally innocent thing, and then grow grow grows then all of a sudden. You're out late every night. She NAMI. Because every night just weekends. Because now what I'm GonNa do is for this next section I'm going to quickly run through this and I'm going to ask you guys, and this will make sense in a second, but let me just get through this, and then we can sort of go back and talk about it Because I think this is sort of the I'm going to kind of do like the kind of surface interpretation of what's happening, and then we can kind of go back and see if you guys have other ideas, but. So toss go tell the tales grow taller on down the line, but I'm telling you babe. That I don't think it's True Babe? And, even if it is keep this in mind, so he's saying luck. These stories grow. I don't think it's true I. Don't buy it for a second, but even if it were true, here's what I would say then what he says is you take it on the run baby? If that's the way you want a baby, then I don't want you around. Wait a minute what? You just said I. Don't think it's true. But if it is true, keep this in mind. You are totally cheating on me. The hell out of you the did to me, yeah. You're talking about. You would think that line of an even if it is true. Keep this in mind. He'd be like. I still love you and there's room for us, and maybe this isn't a relationship remained, but he's like. If it is true, keep this in mind I. Never WanNa, see you again. Why also put also I know this? Somebody think but his what he says after. Keep this in mind. This isn't like a keep this in mind thing. This is like. Get the hell out of here like hey, here's something just like keeping the back of your head. To see this is something to think about while you're cheating. The. That every weekend you should remember this the whole. It's not but the whole. The whole chorus is questionable, and maybe we should just read the whole chorus, because this, these are the rantings of somebody just losing their mind, because the jumping all over the place and none of it makes sense first of all. Take it on the run. What does that mean you take it on the run meaning like all running all over town. But then I mean I think he's saying and I hate to say this, but I think the it here is like her. I gotcha well. I'M GONNA. Say like.
"reo" Discussed on The Story Song Podcast
"So this I have to say I'm a little nervous. Because this is like a few other signs that we've done where I have thought about this song for like thirty years. For for for all that time I've had questions and just a little nervous because I'm like I just WanNa make sure I do this right because I. I really want to get to the bottom of this. But starting here at the top. He says heard it from a friend who? Heard it from a friend who? Heard it from another. You've been messing around all right. Let's bring gossip gathered there. So it is such a good opening line. It's a great opener. Glad but. friend. Heard from a friend that's to heard it from another now. This person does even get the moniker friend this yet. Another just. A friend of a friend who heard it from a bank teller who? Exactly like this news took off, yeah. But the bank teller thinks that they're friends with the customers. So it's like you know. The bank teller is like I'm going to tell my friend this and the other person's like I. Don't know her from some bank teller. I don't know so annoying. They give me like extra lollipops when I go, even though in A. Very Weird. I mean look I like lollipops so. I'll keep on keeping on with it, but come on. I mean look. Banks like half of them root beer, but. You do get occasional cherry, and so I love it, yeah. So what? Ought to bring up. We are three people deep. On this rumor and here's my question. Who is this guy that our narrator does not know and what is? He knows so much about his girlfriend. Why is he that hearing it from a friend and also I've heard a lot of rumors in my time. One thing when someone is telling you that they do not do is give you the entire chain back to where. They usually just say hey. I heard some news like I. Don't know why he's aware how far it goes back and see no. These people that sounds does its own. Way. Of doing well I heard it from bill. Who heard it from Mary? Who heard it from the bank teller? I heard it on the Party line so. Did you really get pinned? About it, so it could be I mean. Maybe it's just like I've always wondered like. Is it a friend of a friend or an acquaintance of a friend of a friend? Or is it like that pop song thing where they just repeat the first line, so it's it's like to removed. I. Well, no, you okay. You're saying this the I don't think so I mean it's. It's definitely not, but it could be. I'M NOT GONNA. Argue the point sticking up for great. Grand Uncle Reginald I understand. and. Appreciate I appreciate. A wait. Oh I should know this. You'RE GONNA be so mad at. What I mean probably. Rachel. Yeah. What's your middle name? You Oh you know what did. You say I'll keep it out because I. don't want someone still your identity. I'll. I'll say also my. What is your middle name? Your mother's maiden name and your social security number say on guests. Don't worry. I will say this Dan. I don't know why you I will tell you at most that it is not because we have known each other for nine on I. Don't know thirty five years, and if my initials were e, Oh, I would never hear the end of it. I know well. That's always excited. I was like maybe I just haven't. This never occurred to me before, but okay. Well, that's all right. I'll have Sarah Yell at you later. We'll say it's not that's fine. It's. Okay, so I thought. Maybe you were named after Reginald maybe that it was designed. The same initials. Okay, but that was talking about. Oh, you know from other people from other people from. A what for your may was? So. Yes, so there's. Well the reason why guess you Michael's because I think he would have said her friend her from a friend heard it from a friend. You've been messing around the fact that he changes it to another at the end I feel like is supposed to be three people. and. That's my question, but I've always wondered was when he says heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend. Is that second front is also our narrators friend, or is this a friend of a friend and then another? Friend of a friend. Yeah, I think. Todd friends right so he's not friends with this other friend. No, it's todd friend. And, then and then another, so that's my question. The second friend is actually his cousin. Like around the same age and they kind of grew up together, so they're more siblings and cousins, but. They hang out. Yeah, okay. They don't see each other like Christmas. Oh, so it's a second friend. They drank together at family parties. That yeah yeah. Yeah, but I'm saying like. Why are they like? Why is this other? Why are these so far removed from him? Why did these people know like? Why is it? Why didn't he know or like his friends know? These people who are like he doesn't even know somehow what his girlfriend. First of all it's an cousin goes to the bank. It's a small speedwagon is a small town. And the thing is reo is zero stands for of. speedwagon. Reo is a homebody. These other people are out dancing every weekend and they see the girlfriend and they're like. Oh, I know who that is up Oh looks like she's got another boyfriend. Somebody Tell Reginald. Yeah, but I. I don't know him enough. You tell. Todd toddle. Reg Title Tells Reginald's friend and Reginald friend will not I mean. Again, it's very confusing. Todd, go to the bank, right. But, that's the thing. I don't understand like so let's say like..

What makes you feel relaxed and happy? Maybe it's doing something kind for someone. We have a couple of kindness stories today from listeners who wanted to share about a time. Someone did something kind for them. I here's Abbie Hi my name's Adam. Sold. I live in Neil, you are. and. Reo. Kindness scarring. His one. Man Arrow on the beach. and. He brought the beach chair one for him I'm from me. and. I like him a lot. I think he's the best friend. I could keep. I miss played a area. My friend, I can't wait until of corona thing Lozo. Thank you avi. I'm sure Arielle misses you, too. He sounds like a very good friend and I can't wait for this. Over to. Thanks for sharing your kindness story abby. Now here's Amelia. I, my name is Amelia and I'm ten years old and I'm from Delaware and when someone showed kindness to me is where my mom helped me with my schoolwork, and I also love your show. I listened to it almost every night. Peace Out and peace within. Thanks Amelia. How lucky you are to have your mom able to help you with your schoolwork. Thank you for sharing. A lot of parents and caregivers are now having to do a lot more helping with online school assignments. There are many things that can be frustrating about being home right now. which is why responding with kindness is more important than ever. When we react to something, someone sadder done without thinking about it. It could lead to a saying or doing something that will hurt others. And while it might make you feel good for a little bit. I'm willing to bet that feeling won't last long. However! If we take an extra moment or two to think about how we will respond that lets us think about how to make better choices in our actions and gives us time to choose helpful, not hurtful words. Even when it's hard. It might help to remind yourself to take some deep breaths before saying or doing anything. Give it a try next time. Here's one more kindness story. That was sent an e-mail. It says hi. My name is Armani. I am nine years old. I listened to peace out every night. It all started on my second day at my new school. I had no one to play with. I came up to emily. She is now my best friend. I asked her if I could play with her. And of course she said yes. ps, I love the science episodes. Thank your money.

They're in the widespread lockdown efforts during the pandemic so the audio quality might be a little crunchiness spot. So I apologize about that. Let's start the show all right so tell us who you are and what you do name. Reo Worlds and I am at interaction designer. Currently working at frog design is a design consultancy firm monitor the largest ones in globally. Actually Nice. Now what's a regular day like for you there and I know that this is probably a odd question to ask given what we're going through right now at this pandemic but talk to kind of like what your regular day to day is like yes my regular day to day before pandemic usually typically wouldn't frog were teens so the teens are filled with like strategists depending on a project does show designers designers interaction designers like myself. We usually really coming together to brainstorm on whatever the project that we're currently working on so sometimes is is a lot of white boarding the day as sometimes it's about a hits downs like executing the project other times. You may be for myself especially being interaction designer. We're doing like user testing giant to understand how to use fill about the experienced our creating so it really varies like everyday how we work in function but usually when you own a project at rock and your with your team you Richard for months so you are with that team the whole entire time so usually like you in your little corner which you're cheating working brainstorming ideology. Sounds like there's a lot of heads down work that you get to do to focus on a project. Yeah it is a lot of hits down sometimes so when I think of it down. It's like knee working by myself. A lot of times frog really big with collaboration. They believe in like a lot of bringing together you know especially from different disciplines is rare that. I'm just working with people who are interaction designers. I'm usually working with people who are all different types of disciplines. I haven't had the luxury tour Industrial designers have worked with strategist before war and designers of course and design technologist. So a Lotta Times. We're like really working together. And then once we come with an idea concept we're going to execution history but I think so beautiful one thing. I learned from frogs that absolutely love creative process late when I was in school Studying I used to feel like it just came from thin air. Like how do you go from eight to be? You know like what is happening but like with frog and working collaboratively in frock really big like design research in like pulling from all the research to really like conceptualize coming out with these amazing. Did because you know one thing about frog as we push for the next big thing so I think that really phenomenal. That had opportunity to learn this there.

Making Time for Meditation With Ariel Gartner
"I'm your host and this week we're going to talk about something we all know about. We all know we should do but we might have trouble finding time for it in our busy lives. Meditation has incredible healing value for their mind and our body and today's guest is on a mission to get the whole world meditating. Reo Garden is a neuroscientist psychotherapist mom former fashion designer and the founder of Tech Company Muse created to make meditation easier. She has spoken about the benefits of meditation on stages around the world ranging from Ted talks to mit to south by South West. This week. She's here to talk about how we can. Master the art of meditating and find ways to fit it into our hectic wives are welcome to live happy now. It is a complete pleasure to be here. I mean what is better than living happy now? All exactly and you have so much to say about this. We have so many points that we can touch on with you. Because of what you've done and your interest in meditation and the things that you're doing to move meditation forward so I guess a great starting point is to find out how you personally got interested in meditation shirt so my own background is trained as a neuroscientist and I was working as psychotherapists promised a decade and I began working with an early brain computer interface device. So a little electrode that could track the changes in your brain activity and we recognize that the best thing we could do with this device was teach people to meditate. We had some insight into what was going on in people's brains and you know the brain is the seat of all of our experience. Anything youth think see smell talk about it as all mediated by your brain but we have so little access to it and when he recognized that we had way to help people reflect back on what was going on in their mind We realized that the best way to use this was to apply the tool to teach people to meditate so I was a psychotherapist in private practice. I'd be trying to teach my patients to meditate but frankly I sucked at it. I was somebody. Brain bounced all over the place. And I'm like I'm not good at meditation and I was teaching my patience and you know they would rarely really established the habit and we recognize that if we had a tool that could make meditation easier. We could fundamentally deploy broadscale a win. Did Meditation Become so accepted and embraced? You know when I was growing up I didn't hear about it. So when did it become accepted and also scientifically became something that they embrace as a practice? It's a good question so now there's over a thousand published studies documenting the scientifically validated impacted. Meditation on People's lives as a clinician as a therapist. The early two thousands like two thousand five thousand six it started to become part of our training and then towards the later to thousands. You heard about it more and more by twenty ten. It was one of the front line approaches for trauma and other obviously. There's lots of purchase trauma but meditation was something you were told to reteach patients from a general consumer perspective. It wasn't really until twenty fourteen. Twenty thirteen that you started to hear about it. In the general public at that point meditation was on the cover of Time magazine and it just cracked open that trend and you started to see a flood of articles of big. Ceo's were meditating athletes who are meditating and now only six or seven years later. Meditation is known as something that you should be doing along side brushing your teeth eating well and exercising. It's just understood among the educated populace that it's what you should be doing for your home. It's been a very fast ramp and we hear that you should do it but can you explain why because we here. It's good for you. It's going to help you be more calm. Be MORE PRESENT. But how does it really benefit us? What is it doing to our brains shirt? So meditation very simply is a practice or training that leads to healthy and positive mind states and there are many different forms of meditation. That you might have heard of a zen meditation walking meditation. Mindfulness the most common form that people learn. I is focused attention. Meditation so in focused attention meditation. What you're doing is you're putting your attention on your breath and when your mind eventually wanders away from her breath taller mountains. Do you then noticed that your mind has wandered and the new. Choose to come back to your breath. So it's actually incredibly simple exercise your attentions on your breath. Your mind wanders onto the grocery list or something else you say. Oh my mind wandered away. Okay backed my breath now. Well this might sound really simple. It's actually quite hard to do consistently and the simple thing leads to some tremendous benefits as I mentioned. There's over a thousand published studies demonstrating meditations ability to impact your brain your body your health. Your interpersonal relationships your productivity and more and so breaking down this very simple exercise most of us go through our lives with their minds. Just on autopilot you. We have thoughts in our head and we assume that those are supposed to be the thoughts that are there. That's just what happens and a lot of those thoughts are negative repetitive stressful when not particularly helpful. And they simply loop in our minds and we follow them and we think about them and then they make our experience of life somewhat negative stressful in repetitive. And Meditation. What you're doing when you notice that your mind has wandered and you choose instead of following. That thought like you normally would and now thinking about the grocery list or your upcoming basketball game or wherever. Your mind wanders. You're saying no I'M NOT GONNA follow that wandering thought. I'm going to choose to take my mind elsewhere onto something that is neutral like your breath and as soon as you do that you change your relationship to your thoughts see you now for the first time recognize that you have a choice about what you were thinking and so you can take your mind off of thoughts that are negative stressful repetitive. It's Nope I don't need to be there. Let me go back to something neutral and so as you do that over time you train your mind to stay in a place that is neutral. That is calmer that is not filled with thoughts. And that is actually in the present moment. And when you're in the present moment you're not thinking about the past or the future which is where your worries and concerns live the present moment you just have. What's Hyun in front of you? It's one thing to have that experience while you're meditating. How long does it take until you have that same experience when not meditating? You know even after you've stopped you're mad at the moment you have control over whether your mind is going so like anything. It's a practice. You can't just go to the gym once and then expect to be strong among later. You know you do it consistently as you do it consistently you built the practice so for some people you know. It takes a couple sittings of meditation to kind of get. What's going on and then it takes a couple of weeks maybe to start to notice that okay you feel a little bit calmer and then after a few months you recognize that you have more ability to really manage your mind. You feel less distracted throughout the day. You find yourself more focused you know. Maybe your relatives are noticing changes. How long does someone need to meditate in like daily because people say I don't have five minutes I don't have ten minutes? I don't know how long I'm supposed to meditate. How long do you need to meditate every day for it to be effective? So that's a good question and what you WanNa be doing is starting off with a small amount because the most important part about meditation is doing it regularly and building the habit. So if you start off with ten minutes Dan Meditation and that amount of time. It's frustrating to. You're probably not GONNA do it. So some people start with as little as three minutes or four minutes five minutes and then build their way up to ten. Most of the studies are done with twenty minutes per dave meditation. But it's also been shown that you can get benefit with ten minutes of meditation and that will give you an ice consistent practice us and is it something you necessarily have to do sitting in a corner quite a you know. Do you need to make space for it? Does it become something that you can do really anywhere. Ideally at something that you can do anywhere because what you're ultimately building is the skill of being able to be focused and attentive and in the moment wherever you are in a meeting in a crowded environment in times in real life where you're frustrated and you need those skills. So people find it useful to have a spot in their homeowners. Quiet because you can then spend that time really sitting with yourself and observing your thoughts but as you get better at it you want to be putting yourself in all sorts of situations where you practice your meditation so that you can draw on that scale when you need it anywhere

The Rock N Play sleeper was recalled in the U.S. after 32 deaths
"If you've ever been a parent or taken care of an infant for any length of time, or even just had a baby in the same house, as you, you know, how much sleep matters. When will the baby sleep when will I sleep for how long please don't wake up yet, if this gets bad, and sometimes with kids it gets bad, you'll do anything for a few hours, which brings us to the Fisher Price rock and play sleeper. If there's a device out there that will get a child to sleep and help them stay that way. Then there are parents desperate enough to try it. And sometimes the unimaginable happens. Tonight. Parents warned to stop using the Fisher Price rock and play sleeper immediately. The move comes just days after a consumer reports investigation found at least thirty two deaths linked to the incline sleeper. That's why you can't buy be Rockin play sleeper anymore in the United States anyway here in Canada. It's called the Fisher Price Rockin play soothing seat. And yes, it's the same thing. I can buy this right now. I have an open order sitting on an online retailer right in front of me. Does a label change that much can a new name help parents use this product in a safer way? And look, I get that there are loopholes and regulations around products, but doesn't the term better safe than sorry come into play. At some point. Jordan. He throwing. And this is the big story Arielle Brewster is a senior editor at today's parent, high RAM and Claire ganja is the health editor at today's parent. Hello. Hello. REO. First of all, maybe can you just describe the rock and play, like what does it look like what does it do? It's sort of a waste high place to put your baby down not as far as best in it. It's not as seat like as a bouncer chair. It has mesh sides. It can fold up and sort of collapse into itself to go under a bed, your baby would sort of sit in, in a nestled position and I should mention there also safety straps to keep them in it. It could be used for naps. It could be used when you want to take a shower and drag it into the bathroom wanna unload, the dishwasher and to mobilize baby for a little while. Yeah. Just put them down without putting them on the floor and how. Do parents use it in general. I think it depends a lot of parents probably use it for Notts. They nursed their baby the baby falls asleep. You put them in the rock and play you go unload, the dishwasher. Some parents use it I leap. And that might be up or it might be for the whole night long, obviously with intervals breaks to feed the baby in the US the product was labeled as a sleeper and said, safer overnight sleep right on the box in Canada. It does not help popular are these things. Well, we know that four point seven million of them recalled anyways, so quite a few were sold. You know, when my first daughter was born didn't exist. So it's not something that I had its parent, but I had heard of it, you know, going through my parenting and a lot of parenting groups Facebook where they talk about sleep. It's called a lifesaver. It's something that many parents, sort of have come to rely on as a place where their kids might sleep for three hour stretch versus maybe twenty minute stretch. You know, they were getting in like a flat bassinet type environment. I do think they've been increasing in popularity even between having my first kid and second kid, I started seeing them out. They're more WalMart target when target was in Canada. They started doing designer collaborations as well. So you could not only get the basic rock and play, you could get a Jonathan Adler designed rock and play with special fabric or wouldn't accents. There were a lot of different options. Some of them were as low as like eighty dollars. It could go up to one twenty one seventy depending on how fancy however, for place for your baby to sleep like hundred twenty dollars is actually quite cheap. When you look at the other options out there, which I think, was part of the popularity as well, when, you know, you're only going to use it for a couple of months to be in your room, or when the baby's under three months, it's a seemed like a great option. I think you also saw it's sort of cult like status in the reactions that came out after it was recalled there were stories on how do we know maybe off the rock and play, you know. What are you gonna do? Now that, you know. So you kind of got a sense of how ingrained it had become in sort of an early parenthood news that product that everybody had that they relied on for their kids to sleep in. So this is a major recall in the parenting world done. It's fair to say. Why was it recalled consumer reports didn't investigation and they linked the rock and play to thirty two deaths in the United States to thirty two deaths since two thousand and nine this came out in stages. The consumer Product Safety Commission issued a joint warning with Fisher Price saying that parents should discontinue use of it. Once the infant has been able to start rolling over or is three months of age, and I think I was always in the, the guidelines on how to use the product, but they came up with a warning on April fifth, and then on April eighth consumer reports published a full investigation, and it became clear that they had been looking into it for a while. So they had, you know, interviewed doctors look debt, medical evidence. I think there were some lawsuits that had been launched from some of the families where the baby's head died, and they had been digging around, and they sort of said, hey, we have guidelines for safely, the guidelines are babies should be. Lying flat. Flat surface, there shouldn't be any anything that might cause them to suffocate nearby, like so, like, you know, no blankets in the crib, stuffy no pillows. These are all very long standing guidelines, the very clear and they're arguably doesn't meet those guidelines, so consumer reports seem to be saying, hey, we need to look at this product, we're linking it to these deaths Fisher Price at the time and still to my knowledge is saying that there was misuse of the product. So it was being used longer than the recommended time. So like pass three months or pass when it could roll over. Or maybe there was a digital batting put into the rock and play that shouldn't have been there. I don't think we know all those details at this point. But consumer reports basically was saying, hey, we've got thirty two kids who've died. Let's this product it was shortly after that, that they actually recall the product, how do babies die, and this thing he's at Suffolk Asian. Is it do we know we don't know all the details on that still? CPSC is focusing on rolling over so babies who they've Rishon age where they can turn themselves over, but they can't get themselves back into recession where they can start breathing. And so parents sometimes even know that they can roll over right? Like that didn't roll over yesterday. But the man product and now the they're rolling over. So that is also why it's like three months because three months would be sort of an age of that milestone where, you know, babies more more likely will be able to, to roll over that is one cause of death. There are indications that there could have been, you know, other contributing medical factors in some of the deaths that also needs to be looked at, but there's also something called positional, asphyxia succesion, and that is, is basically, it means you're suffocating based on your position. So the babies would have gotten themselves into -sition where their, their chins were sort of down on their chest, and it's cutting off the airway that is something that can happen in car siege. It can happen in a swing. It does. Happen. And I think it's under that would that they'll be looking at parents might be using it wrong or using it for longer than the intended time. But I mean, I'm I'm a parent and I understand that you do what works, but even for those who aren't parents are because you guys talk to millions of parents, give us a little bit of insight into the mind of apparent that is trying to use contraptions like this to get their kid to sleep share. I think I think let me posted our story. We got a lot of then they're done that moms who were very defensive or saying, you know, I suffered with sleep deprivation. That's just what being a parent is, basically buck up. And I thought that was pretty unfair because my sense, is that when you're using this device, it's because you don't have a good sleeper naturally, and we're not talking about parents who are leaving their kids in Iraq in play for eight or nine hours. And an assuming that early parenthood is a full night's sleep for the most part. I think it's parents who were hoping to get a two or three hour stretch instead of twenty or thirty minute stretch they didn't have. Unreasonable expectations they'd tried bouncing on a yoga ball for one hour. Two hours than gently putting the baby in the bassinet. They'd tried pre warming the best in it with them microwaveable bean. Bet you know, they'd done everything every white noise machine lullaby and the only way they're babies slept longer than thirty minutes was in the rock and play. And that bought them, maybe three or four hours, and that is considered a huge victory when you have a young, baby. So I, I don't think we should think these are negligent, parents, these are parents were actually trying everything, and they're extremely sleep-deprived because what happens to all those cases is start maybe making other decisions that aren't that safe fall asleep with the baby on a coach or just in Iraq. And so parents who are deciding to use products to help the rape sleep or not necessarily taking shortcut or they've actually spent a lot of time, weighing all the risks and benefits and they know that they're not functioning properly southern. Making a choice. I think maybe is safer here in this thing, then with me at this time, so now we get to the risks and benefits, part this product is still available in Canada. Correct. So the product is available in Canada, but it's not called a rock in place, leaper. That is what it's called in the United States in Canada. It's called a rock in place, soothing seat. And so the pictures on the box, and the wording and everything, sort of, implies that it's, you know, for that I use that are was talking about before, where you maybe need to the dishwasher, and you put your happy baby next to you, and they might talk to them a little bit while you're you're doing it, but they're just sitting in it. Sure. I mean that's not reality, especially with a newborn, they newborn sleep for a lot of the day and, and night, maybe not a night. But if you have a baby, that's, that's napping. Those chances are it's going to it might sleep, even though that's what it's called in Canada. It is the same product so a baby might fall asleep in the product in the. United States just as they might fall asleep in the product in Canada. The reason is still for sale here. Is that Health Canada had concerns about it, but they brought their concerns in two thousand eleven when Mattel brought the product to Canada, they said, whoa, they're calling this a sleeper, and it doesn't meet any of our requirements for safe sleep environment? We actually have regulations here. They're called the cribs cradles bass nets regulations and they sort of outlined, what a product that's going to be sold here for that purpose needs to look like you know, probably has to be a certain size. And the one thing that definitely needs to be as flat. This product is not flat. It wasn't until they changed the name of the product and all the labeling to call soothing seat that it was even allowed to be sold here. How different are the actual to products. We did try to find out the best. We could if there were any designed differences. We don't think there are we everyone talks about them, as though they are the same product. We. We asked Mattel, if there are any designed differences, they did not respond to that part of the question they referred to the labelling differences. So we're assuming they are the same product. I can tell you about to about one in the US. My parents are American had it shipped to their house because there's more variety. I was shopping around for a different design, and I got one that I liked better while shopping online in the US smuggled it in and I also I think I got one from an event here in Toronto. I did not notice different labelling on the box. Did I look that closely? I'm not sure if said, soothing C N, one said, sleeper, I can tell you I use both had one upstairs and went downstairs, and to me they were the exact same product just different colors was a bunny was a lamb. Talked to Canadian parents about this. They use it differently. No, they do not. They use the exact same way in American parent would use it. I wanted to add that a lot of parents who use the product have babies who have something called reflex, which is not just spit up. It's a baby who always pukes allot after feet and you're instructed to keep them upright for like thirty minutes after feed. This is actually quite difficult. If you have a baby, who falls asleep while nursing falls asleep, while taking a bottle, and then you're supposed to keep this asleep. Newborn, upright, somehow waking them the rock and play really to me solve that problem. And that's actually why I got it for my second kid. My first kid was super bar fee. It was a nightmare. I thought, oh here's what I needed some way to keep him upright. Without waking him, put them in there to sleep. Definitely and other parents, you talked to in Canada, the same thing. Yes. I mostly did it for naps. I'll admit I never did it for overnight. Because his reflects never seemed as bad, then but I can see. If it's working during the day logically, you would think why not do it at night as well. What do doctors in Canada? Think about the fact that this is available here after it's been recalled.

In Moryo in REO, the black person who acts white, you know, black on the outside white on the inside. I don't like that term because black, people are not monolithic, and there's no way to act black.

Kenneth Branagh talks 'All Is True'
"Everybody. I'm Peter Travers this popcorn where we tell. You. What's happening at the movies? And we have a movie now called all is true. It is the story of William Shakespeare in his later years. It stars my friend here Kenneth Branagh who also directed it. And did God knows what else, you know? Can I think it's kind of amazing? We were talking a little bit before about when I first encountered you which was you playing a Henry the fifth onscreen, which he directed as well as started Oscar nominations for both things. This was a Henry who was just filled with youth and vigor and was going to take on the world and everything and it was. This fresh vigorous approach to what Shakespeare is. And now, you're playing Shakespeare himself in his later years has that make you feel on usual. Unusual very privileged. Because the in a way, you know, Henry the fifth was a it was an amazing opportunity to have as a young actor, and a sort of virgin filmmaker and really was any possible because there were lots of other equally sorts of adventurous maverick figures in terms of the produces and an all sorts of other people who were taking a chance on me. I remember talking to the late. Great psalm. Go when junior when we were releasing that film in America saying cannot, please please, please. I I know I'm I'm I'm twenty I'm nobody another, but complete can I make two requests on the post police. Could you include two names, one is Judi Dench who I promise you people will know about sued they will know about and the other one pleases William Shakespeare, without whom none of us would be here. Why credit the writer well, just different additional dialogue anyway. But it was he was just too concerned about what was going. To get people into the side. No problem listening to a smart, man. He news who knew his market. But I suppose the send if things I keep sort of saying the same thank yous to people like Judy Dench shoop stuck with me through a journey through shakes. Things have you done with her? I mean we worked about together by seven times. And she's directed me. A couple of times and I've directed her. I've always learned from her and a couple of years ago, we did Shakespeare's play the winter's tale, which was really a prelude to making this film. All is true because she played Pauline a- a woman who speaks truth to power, and she puts my character in that play on a man who makes stupid mistake and loses a child as a result. She puts into the test puts into the sold, and that sort of ten ship became a starting point for Ben Elton thinking about how might Anne Hathaway and William Shakespeare's relation be after twenty years of him being away as the most famous of the agent and coming back to face the family. That's the the whole crux of the story. He's got this wife who he basically has neglected. Fully and two daughters and a dead son memories dealing with. But I always here we know nothing about what really happened in terms of what was going on and Shakespeare's life. So how does this come about that you get to play him at in sixteen thirteen when he's basically retired after the old gulp Peter burns down. He's going on. Well, belts looked at the existing facts factual as we knew them that appear in the Public Record Office. And so you'll find that on on a day in June of sixteen fourteen Joan lane stood up in the church. Holy trinity church in Stratford, and he called Shakespeare's daughter a whore. And he said she had gonna RIA and that she was sleeping with the a man who was not her husband. This is in public record quite clear. Everybody knew about it created a sensation because Shakespeare was returning celebrity and in the case of of someone so creatively prolific to come back to a tiny town. And a long way from London, and and after thirty seven plays in a great success workout, what to do even let alone what to say to a wife and daughters, who as you say been neglected, and who have if you think of in terms of the plays that he wrote we're to have plenty to say about what he might or might not have done or said in his terms. He's gonna he's gonna come to terms with how that sits, you know, the the this idea of what it's like for genius to deal with old and rely was also in the in the core of what we were trying to look at Ben Elton who did this works on in a very humorous way. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yeah. But that's it. He's coming up and people are saying who the hell are you, you know. And I think what again one of the fascinating about Shakespeare's. How elusive he is. You know, there are probably about twenty five about him in the public record of his places. He was things that happened during the course of his life, but many people find it hard to join the. The idea of the fellow we present who may not have gone to drama school comes from a relatively lower class and REO in small country town and goes off into the world and can write plays about Rome and Egypt. And and it's Lee, and and and politics and religion and do so without having had the classical education without being as whether classical idea of genius, lured by remand bad and dangerous to know living glamorous life of public scandal. That sound great. I'd buy some of that. But Shakespeare seems to go pups, you know, exemplify what flow BAC, hold when he described the autistic life and said, you need to be boys watering, your private life and revolutionary in your creative life, and you might argue that about Shakespeare, but but that that that's sort of contradiction tension between the ordinary man and the man capable of extrordinary creative output to me you so touching so point. So Shakespeare because he he often in his own. Own place. He pulls the rug from under the feet of grandiloquent people saying, you know, what? In the end, you're all going to need company. You're going to need help at the end of your life. You're all going to require a you're all you need a support that comes from very simple contact with human beings. It isn't all about being some grand Queen or king. Even if he writes, very well about them his genius. I think he's writing about the nitty gritty in love, isn't it? Yeah. It's kind of amazing that in terms of film television. Whatever we don't really get that much of him. We really don't. So you I'm watching this. And I'm thinking, okay. Here's the he's coming home that heroes coming on, and nobody really wants them. Yes. Everybody's white says really, you know. And also that they were illiterate, basically, women just weren't taught obsoleted. So so a lot Benneton I think to give a modern voice in the film to women who. Had not been listened to. And it didn't matter to them that father, even then was lauded as the as the poet of the age, his, you know, clear and present responsibility as a parent, and as a husband with something that they they challenge, and and they challenge indeed as most families experience, even with the most high-achieving mother or father out there in the world being spectacular comeback to your own, you know, kitchen table, and you're just a member of that family and people are are unimpressed in the tension. That accrues is important one of the things I admire about Shakespeare is that he does come back to stop. But he does he does. He does fess up. You know, he he they stay married, and we investigate and explore the idea of what what it meant when this is true in in Shakespeare's will he left his wife? His second best bed and many people. Regard this great slight or a snob or in front. We take a different view that might have that might actually be a layer of meaning in that that suggest Papp's. It's a it's more than a friendly. Gesture might even be a loving gesture. The title was originally

And in some ways the barrier of entry is so much lower. But in today's listen, we're gonna make an even easier for you to set up your own video shoe, so you can be able to shoot video anytime quickly and efficiently. So let's start with tool number one. And that's you don't need fancy camera. You just do not need a DSL are anymore. I will is actually your smartphone. If you have a smartphone. That's two three years old. You're totally fine. Most more phones that are three years or younger will even shoe up to four K. My iphone shoots up to four K at sixty frames per second. That's pretty much the best any diesel are can shoot. Yes. Disloyal can change lenses, and you can do all that Boca affect on that kind of stuff. But right now, we're trying to get things done. We're trying to shoot a high quality video as. As easily as possible. So we have videos, right? If keep dwelling on, you know, making it perfect. We're never going to get it done. So your smartphone is more than enough. Most of us don't even use a half the power that our phone can do most of our smartphones have such powerful video cameras with high quality software to clean things out for you. So when you do at it, you're saving time and money to Lamar on the smartphone. You already have tool number two a tripod. Now, you don't need to get a fancy tripod. You can get what's called the gorilla pod. Which is busy tripod its legs are flexible, so you can of clamp it to anywhere. Do you can get a very simple tripod, even when that stands on the floor for thirty or forty dollars on Amazon. Same thing goes with a grill a pot and what you're doing is just stabilizing the camera. You put the camera on a stack of books. He could put the camera on a desk. But a camera on a chair the players just want to make sure the camera is steady and stable knowns holding. The camera. If you have this you could just hit record and get behind that camera and start shooting your video. Of course, you can edit out all that transition at the start at the end when you're starting the video when you're ending the video and make sure you pause before, sir. Talking face up the camera, and you pause to allow that to happen. And then you start, you know, going into your script, we're going into your video content. So tripod is essential. It's going to take your camera phone to the next level tool. Number three, a long charging cable. You don't wanna worry about your phone dying out on you when you're doing shoot? Usually if you're doing videos, your batching, you're doing a few videos in a row, and when you're used your camera I special video camera on your smartphone. It's gonna take a lot of juice. So you wanna make sure that your phone is doing totally fine juice, and that you actually plug it into a power source, whether it's your laptop or whether it's into the wall unit right into the action, Allah, and you can get a long. Extension to whatever you used to charge your phone. Whether it's a lightening cable with a iphone or USB, cable, whatever it is whatever cable used to play into a charger are USB port. So you can plug it in. So it's getting power. This is going to allow you to kind of relax and be headache free, and you can take as many takes as you like with your your camera phone. This is actually better than having a DSL are because he s LARs run on batteries that need to be recharged. And you can run out of battery another option if you have a place to place, this is a power Bank. If you don't want to go and get a longer charging cable, you have power Bank laying around that will give you extra juice for your phone. You can plug in the power Bank that way your phone is got that extra battery power all right tool. Number four is a background you want a solid background as much as possible. So this could be a plane wall in a spare bedroom in your office. In the conference room. Now, you can make that plane while look a little bit better with a bit of paper, you go to craft store, and you get a wide sheet of paper something that's maybe a couple yards or maybe even longer three or four yards and just basically tape that paper to the actual wall. And it becomes where you stand in front of who do this are video shoot area. And we use some blue paper and blue is the Brandon color for women are ninjas. So you can think about your own brand colors. This paper's gonna cost had a whole lot more production value to your videos and for the viewer. It's gonna look like you're in a video studio. All right tool number five, and that's audio an external mic, you're gonna to record REO in a clean way. The audio that you're going to be picking up from your iphone or from your smartphone is just going to be to muffled is going to be too far away from the actual Cameron actual, Mike. So ideally, you want to get some sort of. Boom mic oral appel, Mike, and this Mike has to be plugged into some sort of audio recorder. Now trust me, this is probably one of your biggest investments. He's so worth it. Because your audio is going to be clean. It's going to sound amazing. Real like Sennheiser boom mic. Basically do set it up on a boom arm and you set it up high enough. So it's outside the frame of the camera to the mic doesn't show up in the shot, but it's pointing towards you.
First-party Switch games are setting new attach rate records for Nintendo
"You wanna talk about first party game attach rates, incredibly interesting. We've got some really cool numbers very late last night at three AM Japan time. First of all hardware shipments worldwide. Sorry, I was looking at my phone. I was pulling those up in Japan. We've seen seven point seven million switch units twelve point nine million in the Americas and eleven million and other now for that attach rates, and what that means basically is how many people who own a switch bought these games the best selling game on switch by a pretty big margin. Is Mario Kart eight a last gen port. So hurry forty seven percent of switch owners own that game. So basically roughly one and two minus a couple of people who were like, no, I have it already forty-three percent own. Mario odyssey. Thirty seven percent owned smash limit which is huge because that game is less than two months old at this point right under that thirty-six percent owned breath of the walls. So how how is only thirty six percent owning breath of the wild reaction that game. Like, it's the best launch game of all time. Right. How you bought a system on on launch day and didn't pick up breath a wild while a theory. No, I'll tell you what it is a lot of people bought switches after the launch win shirt there's came in. They didn't buy it breath of the while they bought it from REO cart. They bought it over to superior odyssey. Yeah. And I think probably dummies top of that they're probably a lot of people who bought breath of the wild on. We you not that. There are a lot of people who own we use in general just probably Papa while on you. Skip the launch window bodice which later and didn't need it again. Yep. You think a lot of people brought breath of the wild only you. Yeah. I think so I think so anymore already more than you already owned twelve point five million people voted on we you. I mean, if you already owned a we who and weren't desperate for a switch and the only game you wanted to play breath awhile. There's no need for you to get a switch for that. There were no other launch titles that really I mean, what were you going to switch for one to switch. Now the game. No one talks about anymore. It's never any of these lists. Although it sold a million at launch, right? Other than that. The only games come on. Let's go to thirty one percent of all switch owners on that game. And twenty six percent owns platoon to which is basically wanted. Four and the numbers keep doing anything. After that. I believe it's like tropical freeze in a couple of others. Keep going from that we know that they just said that they sold thirty two million seventy two million.

The Dirty Little Secret Of Non-Performing Notes
"I want. To know what investors generally overlook To win looking at NPL's but if you can give me a little bit of a breakdown of what an n. p. l. is when a nonperforming note is that would be helpful and then we. Can talk a little bit about what's overlooked Certainly so many banks now that volume to the dwindled and are. No longer cranking from firehoses have restructured how they market. Either REO assets or pre foreclosure assets and marketing a pre foreclosure assets has become much more popular meaning somebody's, defaulted they're over forty five days delinquent and typically closer to a year delinquent by the. Time they go into an MP l. sale so, the banks will bundle those in. Many instances and sell them to an investor who thinks that on average they can. Make fifty to sixty percent of those loans reform through some sort of modification so to have an appetite for not, performing loans there's a legal component to it.

Portfolios it's almost like a club people come to Expos and trade notes with each other by portfolio sell portfolios it's a real. Easy game to get into provided you find some of the, more, reputable places, to start prices like Eddie speeds note school. Or no expo there's lots and lots. Of resources out there for people who want to get into. The game and don't really understand how the prophet will work for them but are very interested in trying it out Totally. Agreed huge fan of huge fan of notes what's the one way maybe one or two or three ways to avoid getting taken advantage of in that world, because it's definitely a very tough world sometimes It is honestly the underlying note regardless of your disposition strategy? Is fairly inconsequential provided you've measured at. Least two things and? Even just to the hypothetical how likely are you to modify the note and how badly damaged is the property to where your versus Physician is no and provided you built yourself the margin there on both sides you can take anyway
