How Can We Stop the Upcoming WHO Treaty? Dr. Naomi Wolf Weighs In

"Want to ask you, what can we do to actually put brakes on the World Health Organization world health assembly? Is there still time left on the clock? What can be done? Yeah, well, these are the right questions to ask. I just want to say, I'm scared of that, too. Of course they're going to have their own police force in Canada when Trudeau declared martial law for 24 hours. There were extremely violent police slash military figures abusing protesters and they were un badged, right? They didn't police officer will have his name or her name. Because they're accountable. But these were unidentifiable, really scary people. Same thing in France. You're seeing them all over the world. And there are entities like Blackwater now called Chi, which can send militaries all over the world. So it's the easiest thing in the world to have these mercenaries come over the border now from Canada, or else I've raised this morning before their military age men pouring over the border from places like Afghanistan and Ukraine and the easiest thing in the world to send them to God knows where and to arm them to assist the World Health Organization. So I've been saying as you know for some time that we're at war, I don't want to be a war, but a war is being waged on us. And we have to face the fact. So what can be done? Well, first of all, I can not believe I'm saying this a lifelong former Democrat and child of hippies, but thank God for the Second Amendment. Because one reason that the United States is not entirely enslaved like Australia or Shanghai or Canada in many ways. We're relatively freer compared to those countries is that we have, you know, millions of owners of guns. And I'm a peaceful person. This should not be taken out of context. But it is harder to subjugate an armed population. And this is why our founders gave us the Second Amendment. For exactly times like these. They knew that it was harder to subjugate an armed population. But may that be the worst case scenario, I really hope that it does not devolve into Civil War, which is really what the next thing is in history. When you have an occupying force, which is what the WHO will be by next week. But there are very important things you can do at the state level. Sorry. New Hampshire passed a raft of really good bills in one of them is a Bill where basically they said to the federal government if, you know, you can try all you want to issue federal regulations or laws that are unconstitutional, but New Hampshire is not going to enforce them.

John Zmirak Describes the Roe v. Wade SCOTUS Draft Leak

"Is John Merrick is my guest for the hour, John welcome. Hey, Eric, good to talk to you. I'm such an auspicious day. Well, I don't know what you mean by that. I think we have to talk about a couple of things. We have to talk about the leak, yes, it is Supreme Court leak. Now, not everybody reads what we read and is up on this. So why don't you describe effectively what happened? Someone apparently works at the Supreme Court, took a draft of the final decision of the court reconsidering roe versus wade and Doe versus Bolton that whole raft of unconstitutional abortion presidents. And someone who didn't like the decision leaked to the press, presumably with the hulk that pressure can be put on members of the Supreme Court to change their votes out of fear of physical violence or public pressure or public harassment or whatever it takes to it's just like the racist would do in the old south. You know, when they wanted to lynch a black man, this is what they would do. The rule of law is very uncomfortable for some people. And so they have to go outside the law. They have to use intimidation tactics. It's what the mafia would

Why Professor Neil Thomas Decided to Review Eric's Latest Book 'Is Atheism Dead?'

"The book we discuss on this program, your book is taking leave of Darwin. So if anybody's interested in what you have to say on the subject, that's the first place they should look, taking leave of Darwin, but recently, I believe that stream dot org, you wrote, no, I'm sorry. Where did you post your original referring to? Okay, evolution. It's pronounced evolution, please. Evolution. News. Is it dot org? I can't quite remember evolution. All I know is that if you Google it, it'll take you straight there. Evolution news. Which I think is related to the discovery institute. But you wrote three reviews of a raft of books dealing with these subjects, one of which I was flattered to see was my own new book is atheism dead. So let's talk about that. Because people want to read what you have to say on this, I recommend they go to evolution news or evolution news. Either way, they should go there. But so what do you say roughly in these articles? Yes, it's a case of leverage and leverage I'm afraid. It's one of these. Well, I was looking at your book is atheism dad, along with Steven Myers book return to the guard hypothesis on something called a God of the details by Christian bandia. And I was looking at the sort of continuity and the fact that the three of you sort of came out against a simple sort of idea received ideas about darwinism and sort of thought your own ways and I admired that. And I thought that this should, this should be foregrounded in some way, which is more reason I decided to do the review.

How Serious Is the Threat of Criminalizing Conservatism?

"Com. We are back with none other than professor Viktor Davis Hansen, the author most recently his newest book is the dying citizen, prior to that, the second world wars, the case for Trump, a fabulous read that I enjoy enjoyed very much is the solar of battle and who killed Homer. Professor hands that we've been talking about the anniversary of Pearl Harbor. We've been talking about the discussion with Putin just a moment to go between The White House and the Kremlin. Let's talk about domestic affairs for a moment. How significant should we take it and how much of a threat to buddy politic done with some kind of normalcy is the raft, the euphoria of subpoenas coming out of the January 6th commission and the attempt to criminalize conservatism. Well, I don't think they're going to go anywhere, but they're trying to create a narrative. They're trying to create two narratives. Donald Trump is satanic, and he's still a danger. And there was a coup revolution on January 6th. You take away those two items. And there's nothing there. They have no other agenda. They lost the Russian collusion hoax. They lost the impeachment frenzy. They can only thrive in periods of frenzy and hysteria. So the movement is waning Joe Biden thought that that narrative that Donald Trump killed 350,000 people due to his laxity and COVID inherited the vaccinations, the epidemic was over. We're all going to be fined by July and then the delta came. And then that narrative was now I don't want to go there anymore. Their attitude. So it's just a narrative. And they don't have anything

"Water and then just put over you and that was a tremendous help to have something you can dip in the water to put over you and send certainly a good hat sunscreen. I have my sarong as well for my. Yeah one thing. It's pay money to see those pictures. Actually my sarong came from fiji so badly. How up you kind of have your clothes. You wear on the river during the day and then once you get into camp you wanna get out of those wet clothes and let them dry then. You typically have a change of clothes your evening wear so to sue you wanna get into dry in and evening enjoy camp. But you don't need a lotta stuff you know you can use the same clothes over and over every day but it's enjoyable to have keep your river closed separate from your camp close and then i would say some things not to bring. I was thinking we might need some snacks. We were provided snacks during the day. So we didn't need any snacks. I had brought some nuts in ziplock bags. Well one night while sleeping had not zipped my duffel in a few little desert. Mace found their way into my duffel by not. That were my ziplock bag. So no need to any of those snacks. Unless they're secured better than my were. Yeah they they provide all the food and snacks. You'll want to need. Yes as we start to ramp this up. You're standing in the prettiest spot in the grand canyon. Where or possibly you're sitting. Where are you. What are you looking at first robin you the most. I'm gonna use prettiest in it in a unique way the most inspirational spot for me. That was just completely moving. We head in that rock area with all the bishnu sheets to rafts. Were able to move into side little pocket. They called it the reading room and we were just talked in there with the motors off. it was completely silent. The walls are probably fifty to seventy feet high so just completely quiet and we sat for a while and then one of the guides read a story about one of the early explorers of the river and then another guide broke out his harmonica and played and it just was beautiful so that was probably my most the prettiest spot from an absolutely amazing amazing experience to be there randy. You've got more trips to think about here. We gave you more time. This is so so so difficult. But one of my favorite places is the wheat granaries. it's a classic spaw. You've most likely have seen pictures of this thing. You hike up from the river Five hundred feet or so and you're at the edge of this Rock side There's his old granaries and assist the classic view looking straight down the river. He see the light reflecting off the The entering colorado river look straight down through the gorge. So it's that view from the neck week granaries looking down river actually..

"They'll have a fully cooked meal which could be anything from lasagna. To any type of this they do some incredible cooking in dutch ovens from we had a trout. The last night was. I always i guess a very special night. We had shrimp cocktail and then steak. We had ice cream. I mean the food really is amazing and that was one of the most impressive things to me is. How a on these jay rigs daypack all the supplies and all the food. Our trip is only six days but it was packed for nine days. Because as we helicoptered out another group helicoptered in for the following three days to finish up the rest of the river so when we left lee's ferry everything that was needed was on that those two rafts with thirty seven people and that just impressed me so much. The guides are amazing. That's actually true of the spa boats too so on these eight seventeen eighteen day trips or never re supplied with food or anything impressive. Yeah does that mean the menu changes as you get further along on the trip here. That part of the trip is very much scheduled the way they packed their coolers and freezers they actually have it staged so that they'll use like the stuff a lot of stuff they need for the early part of the trip on the top sure and so they will use food and things that might have shorter time for eight kept earlier in the trip and later in a trip gonna have great food by the end of the trip but the lettuce might be starting to wilt a little bit interesting. What else do people need to know before. They book their trip for the grand canyon. One thing that i would like to point out is some of the options for not necessarily the type of trip but the length the trip in the section of the river both robert nigh have been talking about a trip were essentially eight went near the whole length of the river. There are other options for example. All river trips start at least ferry but some people will go as far as phantom ranch. Which is the main part of grand canyon where people hiked down the the bright angel trail phantom ranch so you can do a rafting trip and they referred to that as the upper part of the river or the first half of the river even though it's really not half it's about eighty miles downstream. So you can book a trip where you travel from these ferry to near phantom ranch but then you have to hike out. It's a ten mile five thousand foot. Climb in it's a significant part hike. But you can do the upper half the river where you're hike out where you can do a trip where you down at. The same point beat a rafting trip and then do the lower half of the river so they would call that exchange trip where they're exchanging passengers in the middle of the trip. Kinda like when robin referred to whitmer wash my one eighty eight where she helicoptered out. They had people coming in and joining a trip..

"And i guess when it comes to companies. It's interesting they're are currently about twelve or thirteen different companies. They tend to have consolidated over the years at the bottom line. Is they're all great. And you're gonna have a great trip any of them. In fact what happens is someone goes on a trip and they come back and say wow. That was the best company ever. You need to go with them. Everyone says that about the company that they go with all excellent actually mentioning companies. Well let me back up before. I say that is some companies tend to specialize in motor only trips. Some companies tend to specialize in just non motor trips and then some companies have a whole gamut of all types of trips. And so you really probably want to look at all the companies and all information what they offer but in terms of specific companies that have gone with the ones that i've gone and really liked our azra which is arizona raft adventures. I've gone with canyon. Expirations of gone with tour west. And i've gone with orders as well then. I actually have some guide friends. It's not uncommon for what some guys might do. Is they wanna bring a bunch of their friends on a commercial trip. They will actually by the whole trip. They called a charter trip. A number of my trips have actually been chartered trips where a bunch of friends have gotten together and essentially bought the commercial trip interesting. And so you are choosing as you choose your next trip by availability or by. I got an email from one of my rafting guides. Resins hey charter trip. Two years from now would you like to go. And i always jump at the chance and opportunity so it actually picked me as opposed to picking it as far as if someone was looking for at least non motor trip i would kind of steer them to look at azra or canyon expirations in a. I think they're all great. Just interesting chris. At our trip there was a group that had done it and now they do it regularly. And it's so funny that now we around their email list as their booking now or twenty twenty three. They're like do you want to be on the list. So i pretty common that it starts to be these repeaters because it is such a. I think a fantastic experience do have your next trip book overnight yet. He doesn't have the dates yet. But we're thinking about it the other piece that truly. I didn't expect that for me. Made it so amazing is the peacefulness. Myu are completely disconnected from the phone from texting from everything and even though we were with so probably our group was larger than what randy's experience Thirty seven people. You still had so much time to yourself. And it was so peaceful in the river is not crowded. It's interesting to hear the at some point. The motorized boats cut off. Because it's not as if you see many boats during the day at all and i came away. I think a lot of people came away with just this sense of renewal because it was completely quiet. Amir times that you could just be just complete. Silence at the bottom of that canyon was beautiful yet. You may only see coup or three other trips during the day. Like you're saying a bunch of all the time the other thing is kind of interesting is they don't know where they're gonna camp every night it and make it. Oh i did. Not unlike i believe. It's the salmon river in idaho or cancer reserved ahead of time on district..

"To bring his synthetic long underwear for exactly that reason even in the summer now robin. You're one hundred seventeen degrees where you there are you wearing synthetic long. Not in fact. One of our biggest learnings edna trip was and this again was not on the river but on land but because of the heat at night where to put our cats we actually never used tents because they said you can use the tense. But they're going to increase the temperature ten to fifteen degrees. None of us ever used the tents. And i was like i'll go back closer to the canyon wall and we'll get a little privacy. Set our cuts up while we quickly learned that as random was saying earlier those rocks hold the heat and radiated out so all night long. It's like you're sleeping in an oven so the repeaters which is interesting that these going for his ten time. We had many people on our trip who were eight or ten time people and we noticed that even the first night there sleeping down by the river. Where like what's that about well. We quickly learned that. It's much cooler to sleep down by the river. So and you talk about packing. They're gonna get a list from the operator that's going to have things like synthetic long underwear and they're going to go. I don't understand. I'm i'm going into the summer. What things are on that and then what things are not on that that should be. I just pack less than you think you need to. And i was only six days so realities are probably a little different but Because things get heavy. You're taking things off the rafting head of fire line every day. Everyone's dry bag. So the duffel bags or in a dry bag with sleeping bag and there's a fire line that you're passing these through fire alarm like a bucket brigade were. You're passing your luggage to someone. We quickly new by numbers who had pack too much and the rest of us for suffering for it. So don't pack as much as you think you might need to quick dry. We packed a let a quick dry clothes in a long sleeves and long pants as well as shorts and the rain gear was essential from our perspective. A hat sunscreen. I would say the thing. I didn't pack that. I wish i had of was that. I had some type of a coffee mug because they had given us thermoses for water which was also for coffee. In the morning. I would have preferred above so that may be so sure. I'm not the chew camper. I seemed to be on this trip. You need very little. Usually the list of things that they tell you to bring is more than what you really need. Shorts and tee shirt maybe like long sleeve son shirt pretty much things that robin mentioned but you quickly learn that you need very little and they provide a lot of the things you need for daily life. We heard who robin went with randy. Have you done all these trips with the same or operator. Have you used used multiple operators..

"It's a little more fun that way but you'll get your safety briefing. I'm assuming of if i fall out of the boat. What do i do exactly. And that's why it's so important to wear a up. Efd personal flotation device or life jacket. That's absolutely essential if you get thrown in. It's a very safe river as rivers. Go and it's actually very safe river for a lot of other adventures. They often have done these studies of ranking rafting compared with other activities in. It's a very very low. You're actually the most dangerous thing you do on. This trip is probably on land actually getting stuck with a cactus or stopping your toe or following. You're cutting yourself on rock. If you fall. Most injuries actually happened on land as opposed in the water as far as being in the water. I believe the biggest factor is as i mentioned earlier. The river is so killed. You really don't want to be in it very long. They really want to get you out as soon as possible. Because you know fifty degree water doesn't sound that bad but fifty degree water is actually pretty cold. When you're in it and you can actually start losing functionality. Within a two or three minutes so they want to get you out. You're someone who lives in a part of the world where the ocean is. Fifty degrees quite often Someone complained recently on the show off talking about this actually in the community section of this show that i sometimes talk about how great things are in california when things. That's not great as our waters really cold and we know the fifty fifty fifty rule. Which is if you're in fifty degree water. You a fifty percent chance of lasting fifty minutes before you get hypothermia little longer for some of us who have little more installation but the rain gear particularly in our rafter. We were down in the front going through. The rapid is getting very wet. The ranga was released shell and even with that at times. It was chilly. But if we didn't have that on it you got what you wanted to get out of that so that you could back up from a rapids perspective. Our raft had for every seat that you were wherever your position. They had a to hand hold and they were pretty insistent that you may that to hand hold and we did have one rapid Through one woman lost her grip on one of her hands and she kind of went flying but fortunately into her neighbors instead of out into the water so that was helpful. And i will say i that randy said the only injure we had was outland and i would say we're sandals every wherever you are on land you make sure you feeder. Have something under them. Well you mentioned the hypothermia. I think i was telling the to view when we're doing that. Call that when. I did the the other trip. I was talking about the dinosaur national park and spent so much time in the in the ducks in the kayaks. You're getting very wet again. River water that is very cold. But you're exerting yourself and you're keeping warm and we stopped one time at lunch. And i just started shivering. I was shivering uncontrollably. Innate very quickly founded a dry shirt for me and some towels and things. Because i didn't realize how much body heat i was losing to. So yeah it's it's an thank you know when you go. On one of these trips the companies will give you a very extensive packing list of what to bring one of the things they will tell you.

"Maybe later in that it really has changed the river. A one of the major things is the river is now a cold river because the water is released from the bottom of glen. Kathy very low part ituri starts out at about. I don't know if it's like forty eight to fifty degrees so it's a very cool. That's cold for river. By the time you reach the end of the river even in the middle of the summer it's only warmed up to maybe fifty five so that's changed the environment of the river but also changed many of the seasonal fluctuations of the river. A lot of how much water is released. At least part of the current drought was aced on the power consumption. It's electrical use for electrical power and so when everyone was turning tends to change during the day is there's more power consumption during the day. Yeah yeah what they actually found though back in the ninety s and early two thousand was brise and lowering of the water levels in the day and it was actually impacting the environment so they have a lot of restrictions now on how much the water could be raised or lower to cut down on the impact on the environment. Greg canyon dam actually publishers. What they're intended river levels going to be and how much you so. The guides notice and they have to plan accordingly where they parked their boats at night for example because if the water drops and build that night all sun votes boats are landed. And you have to get the boats back in the river. Sure well and then robin you just did this trip in. What is one of the worst droughts. The west has seen ever well at least since the days of the ancient pueblo and people basically at this point the guys talk about that affecting the trip and all we ask them because we were expecting it to and the only reason speak out was that well. The water is better this week than last so it did not seem to affect us. I mean for us. It seemed like there was plenty of water so it didn't seem to have an impact but it does with that response certainly seems like is varying from week to week but they're saying interesting. The rapid change very much depending on the water level. Some rapids get easier. Some is harder and some don't get affected much at all by the water level. Shit what's interesting about the rapids. Which i learned is in the canyon rapids rated one through ten versus the one through size on other remorse. Yes and so. I don't know why randy maybe you know. Why but they give it a one through ten rating instead. I sleep. don't know it. It's a strange thing for some reasons. Rivers in the western. Us seemed to be like rated one through ten. But you know the international scale as most people would like one through five one being easy you you can do it on your float trip and five being you. Better have a professional guy. You really better know what you're doing..

"Rob was mentioning hiking and how hot it wasn't everything. That's actually something. That river trips will adapt to for example a lot of my river trips. I've done have been in the spring or fall when the inner canyon temperatures are a little bit more moderate. and it's more conducive to hiking and longer hikes away from the river in the summer time when it's much hotter they tend not to use some hikes and Do a little bit less hiking and you'll spend more time playing in water and under waterfalls. So that's actually also a difference in that. How many river trips will adapt what they do during the day to the current temperatures and seasonable the year. And do you find that you have a favorite time of year to go and the grand canyon. I would go anytime now. It is seasonal right. It is seasonal and the fall. I think the fall for example my upcoming trip. It'll be late. September into early. October as a couple of reasons for that one is the temperatures are more conducive hiking. But also it's the non motor season in other so starting in. I believe it's early to mid september. They don't allow motorboats on the river. And so it's only boats on the river are are non motorboats. It's less traffic on. The river is a lovely time to go and usually the weather is pretty stable. I guess that brings up another thing is what is the the rafting season. The private river trips will go year. Round 'cause they will go whenever they can get a permit but the commercial rafting season usually starts in late april into the end of september. Early october there are no commercial trips on the river on the winter months. That was my understanding excellent. Let's lay out as you start from east to west and you're going down the canyon. How is it going to change over the course of your trip. Probably one of the most spectacular days for me was our third day in they called rapids day and what it was as we were entering the gorge. Which naive i was going in..

"People lived in this case it's difficult to get to but that of course made it very remote an isolated and of course a source of water right there but we're talking about petroglyphs from i assume the ancient pueblo or what we used to call the on assi yes exactly. In fact many of them lived seasonally in the canyon. Oh interesting yeah. I saw some you know other. The other belief is at that time. Which is i believe in the fourteen hundred fifteen early fifteen hundreds. They believe that the climate was different than and more amenable. Some would live there but many would migrate. Seasonally bend different times the season growing crops and bringing crops and some of the stops along the way you can find granaries where they used to store their crops and things like that and we had hiked up to an area where they lived and saw like the foundations of living areas and then also pieces of pottery and cooking utensils in. It's just all nicely just laid out and everyone just looks at it and just leaves it. There's so much history that you learn actually. Is you raft both the history. And then the geology. I found the guys are just fantastic with their knowledge. So there's so much learning that goes on in this to a club. You mentioned being one hundred seventeen degrees. I want to get back to that. Because i think a lot of people have been to the grand canyon. Hopefully most of our listeners have had that opportunity to be the grand canyon. it is an amazing place. Even if you can't rafted but the difference in temperature between where they were on the north or the south rim and the canyon floor. The river is pretty stunning. I have been on the grand canyon at the south rim. I think when it was snowing and they said it was eighty degrees at the river. And so if you're there in a warm day at the top you can imagine that it's the kind of day that robin saw at the bottom. Typically twenty to thirty degrees difference depending on the season because one thing that people don't realize is how high the rims are right in the south rim is around seven thousand feet and the north rim has eight thousand feet at the river level..

It's a popular hike that you do on trips where some people do on trips and so we were just had the right conditions. Where starting at three or four new morning. We hiked up at night under the moonlight. Didn't turn our headlamps on and we're up on top in time for the sunrise. Swept out over the canyon rim And that reminds me when we were having this conversation. That was interesting enough. That i said. Oh hey we need to do this and record it. You were mentioning that for you. Some of the highlights weren't on the river that they were these hikes. Exactly and. I don't know that people are picturing that the river can be used as kind of a big backpacking trip in the sense that no you down the river and a lot of the interest of the trip our site hikes up the side canyons that you could not get to at least to be very very difficult to get to without coming from the river and from the river trip and so i always tell people. It's as much a hiking trip as it is a rafting trip and how much hiking you do can vary depending on the trip and the people on the trip and how much time you have. I kind of consider the non motor trips are usually have a little bit more time in our little bit less of a hurry and they often have a little bit more time to spend time hiking and to me. Hiking is really one of the talk highlights of a lot of these trips and it's a wide variety. Some may be just a short stop to look at petroglyphs or fossils along the river. Some might be a hike up to a half mile hike up to a waterfall off of a side canyon..

"The non motor trips are longer because they're slower take more time so my trips were anywhere from twelve days to eighteen days. Kind of the two week. Grange if you're doing the food canyon in a non motorboat count it well. I asked georgia the end of that episode. What was his favourite trip. There was a rafting trip in the us. That was not the grand canyon. He had recommended the gates of lewd door in dinosaur national park in colorado which we talked about on a recent episode of the show when i did that trip with him he which he graciously offered after that episode. I spent a lot of times. In the duckie's. I spent a lotta time on that river in the inflatable kayaks. Because it's great fun if they let you do it but there are definitely some rows even on that trip where they said back in the boat are liability. Insurance will not cover you going through this rapid on. A kayak excel excellent. Well in my understanding is the difference in the length between the two is not that you go through the rapids faster in the mortar boat. But there's time in between the rapids. That is faster if you could just you know turn on the motor and zoom down. Yeah and i would say. The motorized is zooming. I think it might be going. I forget what it was like. Eight to ten knots per hour right but It's definitely we would be passing some of the smaller rafting boats and the dory's they certainly were taking much more leisurely time. Although i will tell you there was one time. They were awfully glad we were. They are one of the small rafts. Scott stuck going through a rapid one of the rocks. Yes and so. They're trying to rocket out. And so we were hanging back and kind of just keeping place in holding space until they could try and get themselves off but they couldn't and so then our guy decided okay. If he positioned our boat a certain way through the rapid we could displace enough water and we lifted them up and moved the martin so they were very glad that we came along with our motorized. So yeah you could get a dangerous in a little bit. But that's going to be one that we're going to talk about is is wrapping your contrary to a lot of people's beliefs. A lot of the grand canyon is flat water. Yes there are lot of rapids but between many of the rapids are very slow. All sometimes almost like a lake and you actually have to motor or paddle to make it across the lake to the next rapid yes. The river is big and flowing and moving. But it's not always very fast. I don't know what the exact percentages but it's only a very very small percentage of the river rapids. Well i want to get some of the highlights of the experience. I want to talk about the dangers of people would worry about and the prep in those sorts of things. But if i ask you first each of you for a highlight we'll start with you. Robin 'cause it's a little fresher in your mind. What stands out as the single best moment where you thought..

"Ten times is rather lot are all of those ten trips. The same yes no all these trips traverse the same length area of the canyon and the river but not trip is ever the same. It's always different weather. Different stops visiting different places. It's different every time. Well and then it went. We took my differences and you can stop me. If i'm wrong here. I can think of at least four different types of trips that one can do in the same part of the river. I can do a paddle trip or paddle. In my hand. i can do an or trip. Where the guide has great great big oars. I can do a boat. Or i can do a dory if i'm particularly crazy which is a wooden boat. Am i missing a type of trip. That's basically it. You got it. Sometimes that modern day dory's are actually were fiberglass would but basically that's right those are the four basic type of boats. They're using the river. Okay and robin you did. We did a motorized was called the j. rig and actually the outfitter that i went with you mentioned the outfitter so western river expedition and this is a motorized craft that they have patented. So what's one thing. I learned on the rivers even the motorized crafts which are much bigger than the smaller rafts. There different kinds so this one. The unique design is it's five like pontoons strapped together straddled together very securely and then in the center. There's kind of what creates than a bench seat. Which about six people could sit on looking forward in the back. It was so cute. There was an area. They called either the chicken coop or the princess pad. so certainly that sound. That's much much safer and you hardly got wet. But the adventurous folks when you wanted to you were rafting and going through the rapids. Straddling those pontoons in the front. So you really had a variety of seating on that jake so that was a unique design that they offer And now randy your nine trips that you've done on the tenth one that's coming all on the same type of trip or different they were all non motorized rafts. Okay and many companies run what they will referred to as hybrid trip komo where they'll have four or five were powered wraps and then maybe a paddleboats. Well okay so some people love to paddle all the time and to always be in the paddle boat. Tom people never want to be in. The paddle boat. Went to be or boat and then you always have the option of switching out from day to day or morning to afternoon so you can get a variety of different boats and so all my trips have all been this combination of paddleboats or boats. And sometimes they will take a little one person. Duckie along the inflatable kayaks inflatable kayak and for some of the smaller rapids. They will let you cattle a duckie through some of the smaller rapids but when it gets to the bigger rapids. They usually don't want you hit a little ducky right well and we have done one episode of this very trip before an amateur travel. You're gonna have to go way back to find it in the archives and we did it with the founder of oars which is another outfitting company. George went who is no longer living. He died a few years back but he would talked about this particular trip. And then at the end of that show i asked him. What other trips do you recommend for people who can't get on or don't have the time to do this trip because this is like a week long trip said about right mine was six days randy. You're probably much longer yet easily..

"If you've you haven't been to cure nashville you should. You should should good because it is a. It is a family supportive people. Not that other conferences aren't but that is what we're geared for that family support people and looking looking at my background. You've you may have looked into it. I'm appalachian kid. I grew up in the middle of nowhere with railroad tracks. And i knew those railroad tracks went somewhere but no idea where but i dreamed about going beyond that and there was absolutely no reason that i should ever have found myself in new york in los angeles in miami coming from the region that i came from the circumstances that i came from except for people helping me reaching down and saying you know this guy. He's really trying. You've got a absolute. You've got a little bit of talent. I'll help him out. I give him a chance to see if he can prove himself. And people have been so kind to me over the year years. And that is the impetus for creating cure nashville. So when everybody comes together the whole idea is leave your ego at the door because you are there to help other people what we do is if you come to cure nashville your gonna be a speaker there from law enforcement to guess honor to regular attendees you have to be willing to give your business card to everybody there to build that relationship so that people have a network in support to be able to go to the next level. Now if you've looked at who at how the schedule is laid out. We've got things for beginning writers people who go and i'm second really beginning. Writers people who go i have an idea but i'm not sure how to write a book. Starting there all the way through to people who are already new york times bestsellers who show up. Not because their guests of honors they show up as attendees because they want to take our marketing classes and our publicity sessions to be able to see. How do we go to that next level. How do we use the new technology. And so we've got this wide range of people who were there and when you have that mix of those newbies versus really really good veterans. You've got such a wealth of networking a wealth of opportunity of information. If you just take advantage of it in that one thing and we we. We go to the embassy suites hotel in cool springs which is right outside of historic franklin in about twenty fifteen. Twenty minutes from downtown broadway nashville. So you can get you know you can go down to the broadway and have on if you want to or you can go to the civil war harper river rafting. Whatever you'd like to do here in the historic side so that a lot of people come here with bringing their family and do a vacation but You bring all of those people together and then we have just you know sharing so it's with the covert to answer your question the covert. I think we're cool. This year really disrupted and broke my heart last year but for our area where we live. it's not the issue that it was but again encouraging people. If you have some sort of issue health issue whatever you feel more comfortable wearing a mask at the hotel in some of their situations requires maybe some people who wear a mask. If there's there's an thing but once you get into the rooms it's up to you So you know it's I think we're we're coming back to some degree of norm which i am so happy

A Big Week for Global Tech Policy

"New chair of the federal trade commission a raft of bipartisan legislation aimed at big tech and an agreement to collaborate with the european union. It's been a pretty eventful week in terms of global tech policy here to break down what all happened and what the landscape looks like going forward is our policy reporter ryan tracy. Hey ryan thanks for coming back on the show things for me okay. So let's start with the f. T. c. biden named the prominent big tech critic. Lena con as fdic chair you know. We talked about this earlier in the week. With our colleague brent kendall but remind us of the significant of khan's appointment. She's been very clear that she has concerns about the behavior of big companies in a lot of sectors tech. It's been a particular focus for her confirmation hearing she basically said everything's on the table in terms of big tech. Senators asked her a number of questions about areas where the ftc could become more aggressive in terms of looking at the marketplace for news or looking at the marketplace for a smartphone apps all these different areas where we've heard some concerns about the impact of big tech and her answer was almost invariably. Yes to those questions now. There are limits to the ftc's power but mistaken has an expansive view of what that power is and so we expect her to push those limits and so does this signal sort of shift from the obama years to the biden administration potentially signals a much more aggressive approach to antitrust policy. And that's obviously a big deal for the largest tech companies. Who are under. A lot of antitrust scrutiny. Right now and it's kind of amazing when you step back you know. They had a lot of power under the obama administration and a lot of influence and had the biden administration asked for who they would have picked to lead the federal trade commission. Liikanen think it's fair to say would not have been near the top of their list. Just given that a lot of things critical of tech companies in the past so the fact that the biden administration chose her clearly shows their influence is more limited than it used to be.

"It's time for another installment of seahorn. It's still alive here on scuba shock radio and this time we're heading back to july thirtieth nineteen sixty for season three episode thirty titled the invader in this episode. Mike is on assignment to a small unnamed. Latin america country where his job is to train a new underwater demolition team in the opening underwater scenes. Mike is with two other divers and there are placing underwater charges. Mike says that in wartime the underwater soldier only has his blade and bundle of explosives. Well when the charges go off you see the divers being violently tossed about but they're okay. They were just far enough away from the concussion back on the boat. Mike tells us that he has started with twenty men but now he is down to their. Is thomas vegas a wealthy princeton graduate and paul ramirez better known as indio an orphan who is happy but can be serious as a barracuda but there is trouble ashore. The scene shifts to the office of the president day president they duran and he's being confronted by an opposition leader so scenario silvano who is calling for revolution against iran's tax bill. Mike confronts scenario storms out. Mike is worried about this little dictator but president duran assures in he was a soldier and all will be well now. We're back on the boat. Where mike still has his hands. Full with a rivalry between tomasz an indio underwater thomason indio get into a fight by training. Mike forces them to the surface. Thomas toes indio that if he kicks him again like that he'll cut his throat. Mike tells ended. They gotta learn to work together to now. Tomas asks to go sure to go on a date with dawn comes trouble. Speedboat approaches the argonaut with a colonel. Who tells them that. President duran has been abducted by solano and being held in an island. Four miles offshore. What can you do ask the kernel. We'll think of something. Mike replies give us until noon. And if you haven't heard from us by then you've never will. The next thing we see is tomasz on the radio and he is talking to survive at the fort. The revolutionary traitor to l. president. He tells them that there will be an underwater attack. Now as mike in dior getting ready their gear we see tomas sneaking a flare gun into his rig back underwater. The three divers are set for a long swim with patrol boats circling around. So mike takes the boys deep into the channel to create a diversion. Mike sends up a surface marker buoy with a time fused bomb on it when it goes off. The fort thinks it's a pto and savannah. Realizes mike nelson is on his way. President they durant says. Mike nelson is an extraordinary man to which ivano replies. He's an extraordinary gag. Man you see. The revolutionaries have set up a concrete and steel screen across the channel. The only way through is to blast but they wanna confused patrol boats and the floor so they set off a series of bombs in different locations while they blow up the screen. One two three bombs go off in the guards and savannah are confused with a concrete and steel screen blown apart. Mike leads the divers through just then tomasz takes off. Where's he going. He makes his way to the sea wall and is ready to fire off his flare gun to signal the four when mike jumped him they didn't tie tomasz to a floating rafts off the island and set off a smoke bomb again to confuse the revolutionaries mike and i had to the other side of the island. They're getting shallower and shallower into a mike. Pops his head up all clear and they get out of the water and ditched her scuba gear. The raft trick worked by tells indio and he tells them to keep them busy while he gets el presidente. Indio starts tossing grenades. all around. the guards are shooting at everything. Now we see. Mike armed with a small revolver while savant is starting to freak out in the cell. He keeps calling out for martinez. President duran smiling smugly as the havoc rains bike sneaks into fort with his revolver and then we see so von. Tell the guard. Go out and find martinez. Well that opens the door from mike to be called in by president day duran. Mike surprises silvano and tells them to call off the revolutionary. When he says no. Mike says he's a peaceful man but he won't hesitate to shoot him. He'll give him the five one two three okay. So von gives up and radio demand to stand down. Mike is florida the revolution and saved l. president day in the final scene. We see mike at the helm of his boat with a metal pin to his chest. His first from a foreign government indio ramirez is now the head of the country's coastal defense once again letter. Nimoy shows up on seahawks where he played indio.

It did start out as a diagnostic company The foundational product here was a functional genomics platform that helped physicians providers and pharma companies. Identify the right drugs for the right patients by looking at very specific molecular profiling by patient Over the years as the company was evolving in that diagnostic business model I think a combination of prior management and the board realized that there was a there was quite a bit of opportunity to think about diagnostics internally and develop diagnostics on their own because we were identifying unaddressed. Patient populations and matching them to therapies That were either being developed or already in the marketplace and so at believe early two thousand nineteen the board and the management team decided to pivot from a diagnostic business vital to therapeutics business model and leveraging the platform started to identify across a number of validated cancer targets unaddressed. Patient populations where there's a high unmet need and where the company could really help bring beneficial therapies to market under this scope in early twenty twenty the company in licenses its product from lexicon.
