New tensions emerge between Biden team and Trump administration
"Joe biden's incoming administration is taking shape. Former deputy secretary of state anthony blinken will be nominated for secretary of state x fed chair. Janet yellen is up to run treasury retired. General lloyd austin has been tapped to run the defense department. Some of these names have been more controversial than others. there've been some progressive objections to biden's likely pick a former iowa governor. Tom bill sack to reprise his role running. The agriculture department and a lot of republicans in the senate are cool to the choice of near attended a close hillary clinton confidante to run the office of management and budget. Some other choices like yellow. Have gotten pretty warm receptions across the political spectrum to talk about this administration that's what is likely to mean in terms of what a president joe biden might actually do. Let's bring in our left right and center panel on the right law. Chen is the david. Diane steffi fellow at the hoover institution and he's the director of domestic policy studies and lecturer in the public policy program at stanford lot. He has worked on several presidential campaigns for republicans including george w bush's reelection campaign marco. Rubio's two thousand sixteen run and he was the policy director for mitt romney in the two thousand twelve presidential campaign. Hello lonnie thanks for having me and on the left sabil. Rama joins us. Bill is president of demos a progressive organization that studies and advocates for voting rights economic and racial justice and equity sabil is also an associate professor at brooklyn law school. Bill so bill when you look at these names What does this tell you about. The sort of administration that joe biden is preparing to run. So i think the roster that's being built out is really interesting to me what it shows. Is there too big tensions that i think the new administration is trying to balance. A one is a balanced between old hands and some new faces and the other is a balanced between a pragmatic course and also progressive ones. So when you think about someone like janet yellen or cecilia rouse on the economic team These are folks who have deep experience in economic policy but also represent. I think a little bit more of a kind of a progressive wing of the larger policy debate. Not these are certainly not Bernie sanders elizabeth warren folks but they very much represent a part of the economic profession that is increasingly focused on issues of inequality Racial equity and issues of how we get around are sort of current problem of austerity politics. Lot he what do you make of this list of names. Well i think first of all there are a number of very highly qualified people on the list people who have great experience in government who i think even republicans who may have policy or ideological concerns would have to say are well qualified to play the roles. They've been a nominated by the president. Play and so. I think that that's a very hopeful. Sign on the other hand. You've got some real head. Scratchers here josh. There are people who the president is nominated for roles in various situations that i think people kinda wonder what was he. Thinking there Heavier sarah for example to be secretary of health and human services a man with no health policy no public health background who's really so claim to fame in healthcare is arguing to defend the affordable care act which by the way may have been enough for biden but it really seems to be one of those picks where he had put the sarah somewhere so he put him at. Hhs which under ordinary circumstances might be okay but in the middle of a pandemic hhs is going to play a critical role in disturbing the vaccine and hopefully overseeing and the the end of this covid nineteen pandemic here in the us. choice of. Sarah is puzzling one. The other one that i would point to which doesn't require senate confirmation and so Will be what it is. Is susan rice as director the domestic policy council which has traditionally been the policy making apparatus at the white house that coordinates the creation of domestic policy overseeing areas like education and health care immigration. Picking someone with with the deep foreign policy experience for that job seems to me to be a little bit odd. I think she was picked for that job. In part because it doesn't require senate confirmation and biden. His team knew there was no way republicans. Were going to confirm someone is controversial. Susan rice so for every sort of great. Pick for every janet. Yellen for every brian You know you have a few that sort of make you think. Gosh what is the biden team doing here. So it's a little bit of a mixed bag so far. Yeah bill when. I look at the list of names. I do sometimes see what he is describing their almost a sense that biden had list of people that he liked and wanted to give jobs to and a list of jobs he needed to fill and in some places. The matching of the to feels a little bit random. I'd also point to to marcia fudge who's an african american congresswoman from cleveland. She'd openly campaigned to be agriculture secretary. She's a senior member of the agriculture committee. There'd been a lot of progressive concerns about how the agriculture committee has dealt with black farmers and about beneficiaries of nutrition programs people primarily eat food rather than making it And biden has passed over. Her is expected to bill sack in that position and then fudge specifically said that she didn't want one of these traditionally black cabinet jobs like labor or housing and urban development. She's going to be put up to run housing and urban development. So some of these choices they do have that feeling to me of what we want this person job. Well here. this one's available. Let's give them out. One is that is that. Is that too harsh. Look looking at this selection process and saying that you know i. I do think there's a little bit of that. In terms of the example with congressman fudge gave. I think is a is a good one of your. She has deep expertise actually on areas connected to usda. I'm at the same time. I think she'll bring a novel. Interesting and important voice went on the issues of hud but there is a little bit of that. I think the thing i would offer is you know. There's so much going. On with this transition. Given the pandemic given the extraordinary delays that the trump administration put in place at one things that we're really looking at is what's what does that next layer down. Look like so when you think about the whole team Not just cabinet but cap a deputy secretaries and so on can does it look like a team that then has the balance of deep expertise and Mission alignment right at someone. Folks who are laser focused on the combined crises of of the economy and covid and climate and original justice moment. That's the next layer. That i would look at right. Are folks getting complimentary. Picks to offset some of where they might need additional insight or expertise

What's the difference between and calling out people into the streets to loot and to burn and to terrorize under a completely false story of police. Racism of you know i. I don't the difference.

"We're gonna pressure people into hiring minorities that doesn't matter a damn if you're dealing with china and selling out your country's interests in selling out the interest of all people because freedom is good for all people if you're selling out the interests of liberty to make a profit in china that you've got to start with the values and devin nunes is talking about swallow well as being one of the he Sellers of the russian collusion hoax. And it was a hoax. It was a complete non story on. Here's devon nunez talking about Swale well during that time. The answers so far that we're seeing out of out of swallow who ran around. That's not forget for four years accusing everyone of being rushing agents. Let's not forget he was a i. Call a p truth-ler. He was promoting the dossier the still dossier that involves supposedly donald trump and prostitutes and all this stuff while the whole time. He knew that he had some some of his own issues. I think we have a situation of the pot calling the kettle black. Yeah i mean. Kayleigh mcenany said all this time we heard it was the republicans and the russians but it was really the democrats and the chinese. And that's exactly right so it you know it has this kind of Unity story has this kind of unity. They were peachy impeaching trump over the ukraine. When trump was trying to do is get the ukraine to investigate the deal. The biden family dealings in china which in fact were under investigation by the fbi and needed to be investigated by the fbi kind of stood down during the election. Which is not something. I wholly disapprove of. I mean. I know we want them to do that. But but the fbi has a policy. Doj hasn't policies don't have investigations that are going to affect an election. Because you don't know where the investigations are going to turn out. You don't know what they're going to be so the the charges themselves or damning and you don't want that to happen. I have sympathy with that. But now you've got this guy swallow. Who's on the intelligence committee and kevin mccarthy the minority leader in the house. You know he's saying this. Gotta stop. cut eleven. This is a national security threat that the intel committee does not meet enormous chambers. They meet in what is called a skiff to protect from people listening in on what they're talking about. They're getting secrets that other members of congress never are able to see and now we have eric swallow. Well who's been swindled by the the the chinese. But what's even more interesting here is. Why did he attack. The american director of intelligence john radcliffe report talking about the expansion of china's spying throughout he attacks week just last week. He attacked the director. John radcliffe defending china. This man should not be in the intel committee. He's jeopardizing national security. This is the real story. The real story is the press line. The democrats corrupt the democrats dealings with china which needs to be investigated the press covering that up. That's the real story. And that's the real way we've been swindled in front of our eyes and that's the things we're going to have to start looking into. And that's why we need oppressed will do those investigations.

"The specifics of this investigation are unknown. But in a statement hunter biden says. He is taking the matter very seriously and is confident that he handled his affairs quote. Legally and appropriately sources tonight. Tell us that this investigation began in two thousand eighteen role before joe biden launched his candidacy and the announcement comes as mr biden son. Hunter biden revealed that the. Us attorney in delaware is investigating his taxes on your biden's admission today that his tax affairs are under investigation. Comes to cbs. News has learned. The fbi has been looking into the younger biden's financial records since two thousand eighteen hundred biden. Said it will be proven. He acted legally and appropriately while age to his father said he is proud of his son. Who emerge stronger after enduring vicious personal attacks by republicans during the campaign. Yeah i'm proud of him to who wouldn't be pro hunter biden. I'm not sure whether it's the illegitimate children. The drug user the illegal dealings of the influence peddling that makes them. What makes that proud. But who knows investigate. This is from cnn. Who is now running the story on their website. Investigators have been examining multiple issues. It's not just the taxes you so all that stuff you just heard is true but it's not the story. The story is that they have been included in investigating issues including with one hundred biden and his associates violated attacks and money laundering laws and business dealings in foreign countries principally where china according to people briefed on the probe there according to fox maybe a grand jury involved Hunter is either a target subject of that investigation sinclair broadcast group reported in october. This was also buried that the f. b. i. Had opened a criminal investigation into hunter biden. That you remember. Tony bob alinsky. The guy tucker was interviewing that whole show dedicated him. He was said that he was interviewed by the fbi. He told the sinclair broadcast group in their Reporter james rosen formerly of fox that he was a subject of the investigation the investigation. They brought him in with like six agents. Here's cut one. Twenty bob linski. They do list me as a material witness within the entire. Fbi on their computer systems and there was a very cooperative Deep dive and all the facts across that time period in connection with. What were you listed as a material witness In connection with the discussion of the biden family cfc and other operations around the world involving other countries this was. You will remember a deal that they were setting up. That fell through with a chinese energy company. That was related. Was basically a mask for the chinese communist party and bob alinsky says that he met with joe biden and joe biden knew about. This thing was apparently putting to cash in aft while he was out of office. He was out of office at the time. Here's more from. Cnn just listened closely to this though. Hints of the investigation emerged after president. Donald trump's personal. Attorney rudy giuliani helped orchestrate new stories centered on a laptop purported to belong to hunter biden and said to include his business documents and other personal material so in other words. The giuliani story was true. Yeah where they using it as apoe material shore but it was true and they suppressed it. The fbi took possession of the laptop and late. Twenty nineteen as giuliani said. They did And that's according to the computer repairman. Cnn has previously reported that at least some of the information. Giuliani claims come from the laptop appears similar information that was being shared by others last year in ukraine according to one witness to the fbi has approached for information giuliani's efforts to dig up dirt on the biden in ukraine last year with the heart of trump's impeachment. So in other words this story was the story. That trump was talking to the ukraine president. Saying you know you ought to find out more about this. And that's what. They impeached him for the impeached him. For trying to get at the truth of what hunter biden was doing. So we think about the fantasy world. They're living and think about the fantasy world. The left reporters are creating okay. It's just a little bit more of this. Investigators appear to be focused on hundred. Biden's business activities connected to china. Some of his business dealings in china are publicly known through interviews documents released in september. Now you know. They held off held off on this because they don't like to investigate things that might affect an election but now they're back on it. I just want you to play this thing that. Mrc we played some of this at the time at the time this was going on media research center put together these montages of the way this was being covered so first of all before the evidence fully came out. This is what how the mainstream media covered. This is cut nineteen. There is so much speculation out there and there is zero evidence that hunter biden nor joe biden it. Anything wrong here should note again. You and i said this many times. There is no evidence that joe biden was involved in any of course the lender note that there is no evidence that joe biden or biden has done anything wrong. I just want to reiterate. And let's be clear for the viewers is no evidence biden. Did anything wrong again. Because it's important there is no i repeat. No there is no evidence. That either biden did anything illegal. Or it's been no evidence. There was no evidence. There's no evidence. There is no evidence. There is not an iota of evidence evidence biting. Did anything wrong. Joe biden anything wrong. Nobody's ever accused that. There's no evidence whatsoever. That joe biden did anything wrong. Got joe biden. Did nothing wrong. Hunter biden did nothing wrong. Okay then the information started to come out from the laptop and this is how they covered that state this is these are not just not just. Msnbc there's a cnn's the networks everybody again from our friends and media. Research center is cut twenty. The fbi is now investigating whether those alleged hundred emails are actually connected to a larger foreign intelligence operation. They may be related to a foreign intelligence operation. Foreign intelligence operation foreign intelligence foreign intelligence foreign intelligence operation. All we know these emails are made up. The information found on the laptop may be part of a russian disinformation campaign. A russian disinformation effort described by many intelligence experts as having hallmarks all the harmar rather all the hallmarks of a russian russian russian. Disinformation russian. disinformation disinformation campaign. This is a classic example of the right wing. Media machine is amazing. it's a right wing media and working with the russians because the democrats will work with the chinese. Here's john ratcliffe. The director of national intelligence here. He is commenting on those rumors. Cut cut twenty one. Don't drag the intelligence community into this. Hunter biden's laptop is not part of some russian disinformation campaign. The intelligence community doesn't believe that Because there's no intelligence that supports that just want to play one last thing because this is now under investigation by the department of justice by the feds and hunter by a hunt by joe biden made a huge deal of the doj in his campaign from his cellar in with his mask on. This is cut four biden talking about how he's going to run the department of justice. Our justice department is going to operate independently on those issues that How to respond any of that. I'm not gonna be telling them what they have to don't have to do. I'm not going to be saying. Go prosecute a. b. or c. I'm not going to be telling them that's not. The role is not mine. Justice department is the people's justice department so the person or persons. I pick to run. That department are going to be people who are going to have the independent capacity decide who gets prosecuted. Who doesn't we are at the andrew klavan show. We'll be taking bets on whether continues to be true as they continue to investigate hunter biden..

It's where you'll get all my material new stuff that isn't on this show and all the stuff that's on this show be hopefully got from every place else before i am hanged But leave a comment and if your comment is the kind of low level material you just heard we'll read it on the air as fitting right in today. We have a comment from john. Koh who says i'm finally signing onto lord clayton's crusade to a smaller audience than cnn. We are working on it. We're working on it as we continue to tell the truth. And you know what jesus said he said. You shall know the truth and the truth shall cost you listeners. One great successes of big tech in the last election was the censoring of the hunter biden. Laptop story for no reason. Other than the fact they wanted biden to win and trump to lose the mainstream media joined by weird beard. Twitter thug jackboot. Dorsey suppressed a well source story. That suggested joe biden was expecting to cash in on his sons lifetime of influence peddling once joe left office and maybe he already had cashed in among the potential sources of cash flow is a business. That was little more than a front for the chinese communist party. According to media research center the suppression of this story may have contributed a good deal to joe. Biden's victory in the election in fact. Mrc says if more people had known about joe biden would have lost if no if They would they would have changed their mind which possibly could have changed the outcome. It should be no surprise that the big tech or well boys are encouraged by this exercise and election. Tampering an anti-american censorship. Now as we reported yesterday. Youtube is saying they will ban any suggestion. That joe biden's victory was due to fraud or regularities. Why are they doing that because they can. And because they sympathize with the left the networks have also done their best bury. The story of eric swollen his possibly dangerous liaison with chinese spy. I suppose we have to call her fong-fong but fang fang is just too much funnier. Amazing how much of this commitment to censoring right wing. Opinion helps the chinese communist and this is after years of the nba the nfl. Hollywood kowtowing to china and doing their bidding to take in that sweet sweet cash. The news toadies. Tell us that those of us who believe in american patriotism who say american. I recall a selves nationalist. We're racist because something something something but those who crawl on their bellies like beaten dogs to please the chinese. The communists who forcibly sterilized women remove and sell the organs of dissidents and put religious minorities and concentration camps. The corporations and politicians who toady up to them are somehow the good guys. This is the true face of corruption. People who have sold every value for money declaring themselves the arbiters of social justice and the right use of speech. This is the true fight of the moment is going to be the fight going into the next several years. If not decades these media companies have to be destroyed and replaced you. Don't worry about. I worry about the fact that because i'm not going out as much as i was before my driving to work every day. I worried that my car is just going to suddenly go kaput because the city in the garage too much and this is the time when you do not want that to happen because it's the holidays you wanna get out..

So the number of the papers I wrote at Grad School, you know we're on the Mosit- as of India or or soccer punditocracy critiques of Mahamoud, draw various topics like that. So I, you know even in Grad school I I had this interest You know it sometimes said about Chinese practitioners. They're confusions during the day and Taoists. At Night I. Think a part of me that's was during the day and At night. Of course went when I began to discover that was that there was a whole Gaelic tradition of Mambo. I'd been vaguely aware of because it was a little translation that had come out at the library of Tibetan works in archives and. I read through that and So you know after I got Grad school sort of begun by my teaching career. I. Along with rank, of course, bring my dissertation into book form of pretty much everybody wants to do at some point are almost everybody wants to. Buy began to again sort of on the side begin to begin to investigate Gaylord Mabul dress, and so that's at least in terms of the genesis of this I. Guess That's That's how I would I would explain it. In a this dungeon have any. Teachers. Teaching. Mahmoud to you know you know during we went and saw on trump shays league. Once in Chicago he was notoriously late. He was typically drinking soccer when he was typically brilliant. So you know everything we had heard was true. And I think later in the seventies and into the eighties I began to to go occasionally to cognitive teacher but no, I did not have a regular. Teacher and I. I guess it's fair to say that I really never had a sort of regular teacher although in more recent years I've studied some weakening. European. Fortunately for us has his world had ordered in Minneapolis just. Just a few miles from where we live. So now, my my interest I mean I was interested in cognitive because if you're interested in mom will address even from the Gaylord stand going you clearly have to begin researching. Kogyo because. Even, some texts presents the. Is Fine Llamas. Book with. Alex. burs. The gala argue slash kagyu tradition of Mahamoud address. Implies that it's a kind of a sing credit tradition or a synthetic traditional might be a slightly better word So you and it's very clear that the first Panchen Lama who was one of the tutors of style on one of the truly great figures Gael history. He clearly was familiar with cargill literature and and it would seem with some Kogyo practices so. In my in the process of beginning to research, Ma Gala Mambo. Dry Inevitably had to begin reading at least a lot in In the calculator corresponded with scholars argue. Of various sorts Michael. Roy. David Jackson others. Of course the way these things work you you've you dig into you want your insulin gay look initially you dig into the cog you and then you get into the cockpit realize Oh God. All this comes from India and you've got to go back and look again at Sada. High and the other message you gotta look at the time. TRAS. Very, clearly, the textual a kind of sources for Mahmoud to discourse and behind that. Then of course, always these claims that there's a Sutra Mabul dry and so you begin digging around in sutures that may mention the word or may talk about ideas that are similar and so. I ended up going down this kind of rabbit, hole. That led me deeper and deeper back into Indian tradition and it started out as really odd. I'll do a few little translations and right any production suddenly was this Gargantuan projects that threatened to be about just about everything in. Indian. In Tibetan. Buddhism. Because in a weird way Mamo Dra, it was said, could be found everywhere in India, wants about bottles.
Thailand braces for large anti-government rally
"Thailand is bracing for a large anti-government protests tomorrow. The Roddy. Shuttled to take place at university, which was the site of a student massacre decades ago and comes after weeks of demonstration's. The best attended was in the middle of August. When more than ten thousand people marched in Bangkok calling for Political Change, PA me-meeting learn how Students have no choice. We can only come out. We don't want to grow up and have kids ask us when the country was facing injustice for you doing. The protests started off largely as student movements. Different groups of young people around Johnson is the economist Southeast Asia correspondent. We've seen them spread actually in into high schools, and now they seem to be gaining traction among a large segment of the population. What can we expect from tomorrow's protests? We've got two different versions of what's going to happen tomorrow. The protesters' who are organizing the rallies. At Thomas, university anticipate fourteen thousand people coming the authorities are trying to poo poo that. And say you know perhaps it'll be half as many will show up even survey not taking any chances. There were also thousands of police who are being marshalled to keep the event in order, and we've just had actually the deputy minister who is extremely close ally of the prime minister is going to be running the operations into that sexually monitoring the rally. Marta who all these protesters and what's the back story how did they get started? There's been frustration building in Thailand for a number of years the current prime minister and many of his closest henchman seized power in a coup in two thousand fourteen and for while they promised that that would be elections but there wasn't actually one until last year and even when that election occurred the current time constitution ensure that. It wasn't really a level playing field for opposition parties who ran against pro-military potties and others who eventually came together in a coalition and one so that Prime Minister Pray Challenge Child at full McCoy leader could stay in power. So many ties were very annoyed that they had the liberties. Ko they waited many years for an election and then it wasn't savvy the first place and then on top of all that. A particularly, Popular Party led by a very charismatic young politician businessman who basic he got fed up with state of Thailand and decided to become involved in politics. The long. The short of it is that the Ponti Future forward was dissolved earlier this year in February, and that was when we first started to see some flashbulbs few street protests and anger starting to build about the current government. What the protesters want is, is it just the reinstatement of the party or something else I? Think the core protest is believed that this is all moved above. And beyond future forward, a lot of the platform and policies that future forward advocating for things that many of the press testers would like to advance in Thailand more freedoms. An end to harassing opposition activists to protest is also want to see parliament dissolved the crucially they know that dissolving parliament might not do much good until there is a new constitution of the protesters unified what they want. So. That is one particularly contentious issue in all of this, and that's the fact that some of the boldest protesters' have called for reform of the monarchy. The monarchy in Thailand is deeply revered. It's Tabu to to criticize the institution and indeed a less. Law provides up to fifteen years in prison for anyone to be in badly insulting the monarch the current monarch. King. Vajiralongkorn or Rama, the tents took over from his extremely popular father who died in two thousand sixteen and it's been a bumpy road since then as a result for the very first time pretesting and are openly criticizing some of the things that King Vigia along his dumb in particular, they are unhappy with the way in which he has poked crown assets in his own name and they are also unhappy about the fact that he has taken sutton important military units under his pulse no command and a lot of those stationed importantly right in Bangkok so how significant these protests the government. The fact that these protests have been growing since the middle of July slowly, but steadily ease programmatic and the longer they go on the bigger the headache this becomes the government, the students specific and not going away. They're not intimidated by the dozens of people who've been arrested for participating all leading, Maranda? What are the army and the government doing about this? So far it seems to have been a case of wait-and-see. We've seen a few dozen protesters arrested particularly the leadership, but we haven't seen any really tough crackdown and given Thailand's. Of cracking down on student protests, quite bloody manner, and in particular here I'm thinking of events in the nineteen seventies. One Fair on love People's minds is. What happens when the establishment runs short on patients with all of this, it's difficult to say precisely what will happen but the chances all dramatic intervention I think. NEVA'S ERA in Thailand Verandah. Thank you. Thanks so much.
How to Save Seed
"We should talk about this and because first of all. We have gotten a couple of emails to Plant Rama. Dot Com about saving seeds. So I know people are interested that way and I personally have gotten emails from people who have seen particular plant that I have raved about you know on my website or wherever, and they want to know do you save seeds and Trade me some of your seats for something. This is something that. Plant People Garden Gigs do all the time? Isn't it? It is something that people do I mean there are seed saving. Seed saving societies I like the alliteration there. There are people who get together on an annual basis to have a seed swap. So people when they find a plan that they like and I, think that's probably I. Think there are two probably the first two reasons that come to mind for why you might want to do this is one to save money and to so that you can grow these plants that. Seed might not be readily available for commercially the you know something really interesting that you just love. You might not be able to find in the trade, and if you see somebody who's growing that why the heck wouldn't you ask if you trade something for that seed my main reason for saving seeds is to be sure that I have certain biennial 's or annuals every year that I particularly love and. So I will save the seeds from my bread poppies for example, more my corn poppies and although these two plants do self seed in the garden I, do collect the seeds because the chipmunks love to eat them. So if I don't get out there and collect seeds, the chipmunks are going to feast on them, and then I don't know if I'm going to have enough pop is the next year or So I've seeds from something like tomatoes, which is super easy to do you bring your tomatoes inside and it's easy to collect the seed but something like a poppy that's going to go to seed in your garden. How do you? How do you collect that seed before it pops open to you put those little bags over the the seed pods or what do you do? There are some people who do they take little those little sort of what are they called Organza gift bag yes. Yeah and they have a little drawstring during you could make your own out of any very lightweight fabric. So there are some people who tied those around seedpods mainly to prevent seeds from falling out. But for a little while anyway, it can also deter the critters from getting them. I don't do that anymore. I tried to defeat my chipmunks one year. The score ended up chipmunks Five C L nothing. Off Sorry, they ended up chewing through my bag. It was a good attempt, but I think the main thing that people need to know about saving seed is not to pick them too early. Yes. You want to monitor so that you get them before they the seat pods. And the seeds fall out and then they're gone. But. If you pick them when the pods are green, the seeds are likely not to be mature enough to grow next year right? Right. So you have to wait for the seed pods to turn. Brown. But before they open up before you hard, that's right. That's right and once they have turned brown. There are a couple of things you can do what I usually do is I pick them and I put them in a paper envelope and then I leave them in the house just open so that they can continue to dry out and the seeds fall out the seats fall out into the envelope. At that point then I know. Perfect they're ready to store, and so then I put that envelope in a jar or a tupperware container and seal it up. And store them until spring and do you ever put those little those little packets that we get inside like shoes and purses, letter goods, and sometimes and other things that are like supposed to keep the moisture out of the air do you ever stick one of those in the container with your seeds I have not but you certainly could I just be sure to wait until they're all dried that there's no sign of moisture why? I keep the envelope open you wouldn't WanNa pick them and put them immediately in a sealed glass jar. Too much moisture they're likely to mold, and that is your enemy some people instead of putting them in an envelope. Some people put them on as like a cookie sheet on top of paper towels and let them air dry that way and what I would recommend you do whether you're using the envelope technique that I, use the paper towel technique or something else is to immediately once they are picked right on the paper towel or on the pope. What this seeds? Labeling is so important. It just really helps if immediately you write it down
The South Asian Identity In The Current Political Moment
"To prime spots at the political conventions went to two Indian American women Nikki Haley and Kamala Harris, who each leaned into their South Asian immigrant identity and their speeches. Here's Haley, former U. S ambassador to the U. N kicking off the Republican National Convention yesterday. This is personal for me. I am the proud daughter of Indian immigrants. They came to America and settled in a small southern town. My father wore a turban. My mother wore sari. Meanwhile, last week while accepting the Democratic nomination for Vice President, Kamala Harris thanked her mother for raising her to be proud of her Indian heritage. We're here to talk through this moment for South Asian Americans in American politics is Kartik Rama Krishnan. He's a professor of public policy at U C. Riverside. Hey, they're welcome. Thank you for having me so to conventions to women, speaking about their families and their upbringing, with so many Americans watching what these two moments represent, do you think It's a pretty remarkable moment. When you look at the Indian American population. It has grown tremendously in the last two decades, of course, in the case of comely Harris and Nikki Haley They were born and you know, the 19 sixties and early 19 seventies. So you know they've been part of a prior wave of Indian American migration. But still, the vast majority of Indian Americans have arrived in the United States since 1965. And it's remarkable to see how quickly the next generation has come up in politics and how big a deal is their national political political prominence for The South Asian community here in the states. This is a big deal. I mean, what you've seen, for example, is more and more Indian Americans running for office. So you have the so called Samosa Caucus, which had five Indian American members of Congress If you include the House and the Senate after 2018 I think what you're going to see now and especially with Harris. His candidacy is even more people getting inspired more Indian American South Asians more generally, and especially Asian American women feeling inspired to run for office and I think the same you're probably going to see on the Republican side, although When you look at candidates running for office where Indian American, the vast majority of them tend to be Democrat rather than Republican. Well, I was just about to ask is we hear so much about Latino voters? Black voters, other groups. I was going to ask which way understanding is hardly monolithic, but which way South Asian voters tend to lean in and how big a role they could play in 2020. The South Asian voters tend to lean Democrat and pretty heavily Democrat. One way to think about this is that they tend to be the most Democrat leaning either in terms of their party identification or presidential vote choice among all of the Asian American groups on DH there, Lina stronger than among Latinos but less strong than among African Americans. So that's a kind of good benchmark. Now there has been a lot of out its by the Trump administration. So President Trump had a rally in Houston called Howdy movie Rally with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He made a high profile trip to India this year as well. That said, it's really going to be hard to shift in the American voters and other South Asians given their partisan lean and also where they stand on the issues and on most issues like health care and immigration. And gun control in the environment. They tend to be progressive, so it's going to be a group that's going to be very difficult to dislodge from the Democratic column that was Professor Kartik Ramakrishnan of UC Riverside talking about the Indian American vote. It's about 1.8 million Indian Americans who will be eligible to vote in this coming November's election.

Lebanon's entire government resigns amid anger over Beirut explosion
"A week after a massive explosion to. All parts of the Lebanese city of Beirut. Apart, the entire government has resigned the massive blast was caused whenever two thousand tons of ammonium nitrate which had been stored unsafely at the port for six years exploded killing over two hundred people injuring more than six thousand and leaving hundreds of thousands homeless over the weekend residents of Beirut demonstrated against the government calling for the removal of the entire political class due to their negligence and corruption. Joining us once again from Beirut is Layla Milana Allen Leyla when we spoke to you yesterday, five politicians had resigned so far. Tell us about the announcement made last night by the prime minister. So what we saw yesterday and the evening before session, all government ministers resigning. We also saw several NPR's goes well, Megyn went from protesters. Here we go one by one this many left to go. and. Then there was the resignation of the finance minister as he wasn't he just before that meeting that was supposed to in the afternoon that cabinet meeting in which prime minister the APP had said that he was going to a table a motion. To try and have the elections is at the State Petunia. So. How's it wasn't said that he would suspend his his resignation until off the meeting they went in and they spent two thousand not room. Getting. Rumors from quite early on in fact, the entire government was going to resign because there were two ways that this could happen. Either has MD could resign himself or if more than a third of his ministers resigned, that would make his cabinet untenable already looking at five. So essentially, just two more and they were already two minutes to said before they went through, they would resign if the government didn't as Walter a couple of hours they came out and those announcement saying that he would speak in the evening. And when he did speak, he came forward and he said. That they had tried their best to be transparent tried to Rama transparent government. She's January failed to impose some of the reforms that Lebanon. So desperately needed but endemic corruption in the government had made it impossible to do so had caused this tragedy. Now, of course, many people don't feel that's the case they feel that the government was not run transparently at all. Or none of the reforms that has promised January. Would be done in six months word done within six months, and of course we now know. That both the president and the prime. minister. WED Two thousand, seven, hundred and fifty tons of money not great was in the Port as worse excessive government none of them do anything about it. So the government's gone but is going to be a change in the system will the same sectarian politics driving the unrest still exist? Not at the moment now, sectarian politics is really driving some rest. There are a few elements here. Firstly, the the problem with the government system is not that it's impossible to run because the country says sectarian, it's the it's impossible to have a government which allows the country to not be sectarian young people on the streets is saying that's not what they want. They want to country that will come together and work together where people are elected based on their merit not based on what sector they come from but because the political system is original on these lines where each sect gets a certain number of seats innocent area firstly, it's impossible to have that kind of government that is responsible for the entire country doesn't have. Interest in certain places, and secondly, it means only a certain kind of person can be elected because there is such entrenched nepotism in politics and you need the money and connections to be able to run and succeed. So right now, what's going to happen is that as we saw late last year when Prime Minister I've had resigned, the current government will stay on in a Catholic capacity. There's not much they can do in that capacity they will meet rally and they will only be able to put in bills or emergency bills to keep the country going, of course, Lebanon ready needed proper legislation to come in and change things before this explosion now, really function of government. To get things moving the country who built and help people that's not going to happen under a caretaker government but the system is so complex in terms of trying to elect a new prime minister different block in Palm. As I say, these different sectarian blocks have to agree on the candidates and then he has to find a cabinet that pleases all of this -Tarian blocks each of whom will want their own cows come in that. Again, what we're going to see in the coming weeks is this political game. All aimed at making the right formation balance of people in power rob. Then a government trudy is just focused on what is best for the Lebanese people purchase street saying this is the same old system. Nothing's going to change a new election won't help us. Cabinet won't help us. We need a complete overhaul of its system which has dragging us down and letting the country move forward.
Between Renting and Buying, Unagi Offers Personal Scooters With a Subscription
"These scooters. There are many of them out there. But how many of them can you subscribe to? David Hyman has a company called. And he is offering read full not reynolds but subscription. To instead of paying a thousand dollars for a new scooter David wants to tell you all about subscription. Hi David. How's it going tests you same here or tell everybody what you got. Sure. So We started Nadi about two and a half years ago. Because we felt that there was a market in this game from my own personal experience of people want to own scooters have one in their possession. It's up, rent them on the street and I got frustrated with ridesharing scooters both. From kind of a at Adnan experience, where wrote a lime scooter to a whole foods and I came out with my groceries and? was. Gone because somebody took it wrote away back and I had just bought inexpensive pint of ice cream and I ended up walking home with melted ice cream. And I thought why don't I just own one of these things like Not, not to mention the urban blight, right that the separate conversation I know you're down in. Southern California people can't hit three steps in tripping over one, right so. I just like the ownership model all. and. So we launched to ninety two years ago. Our hunch was correct. We we were selling hundreds a month, and since covid has hit, we are now showing thousands of. With folks s by coming on board to carry our scooter and new Europe Europe photographer being H Photo Outta Rama. Now Sell our scooter. Are Scooters it's the best electric. Scooter. Poured. Electric Scooter you can own this. Don't just take my word for it There's over a hundred reviews online that states the best electric scooter you could have, but it's a thousand dollars and not everyone can afford that. So we've been asking yourself, how have we reach abroad her audience? And so What is this? When is this going? Live this life when you want it to go live? So. So Logging all access is our new subscription service. It is thirty nine dollars a month. No commitment. There's a one time fifty dollars setup fee. And that's it. We bring it to Your Place Felice ambled. It's dropped off by an inaugural represented if You don't have to assemble it. Don't have to deal with the box and whenever you're done with it, we come and pick it up. But. We think that. Indian. That's New York because of the tour. Angeles in New York, city is where we're launching. Correct. If anything ever goes wrong with the scooter we at your door and under twenty four and we just hot swap another one. So you know skewed downtime. And Insurance is included. So, if anything goes wrong with the scooter, if it's stolen or any form of damage. There's an eighty, five dollar deductible. Now you said you started the company based on melted ice cream. So what happens when you ride your scooter to whole foods and walkout in walk into the store to get the Ice Cream? What do you do with your scooter that you are now subscribing to? So you can either lock it like a bicycle regular you locked works. Scooter so light I throw it in my shopping cart. That's what I did. I mean, it is. It's twenty six pounds. It's the kind of thing that you can bring it any cafe or restaurant. You know we we sell thousands a month, the normal use case with our scooters that. You take it. Everywhere you go and we really designed for portability. Normal. Users under not. Ride to. Our or a subway can take it on the subway and then pop out and take it with them. It takes up no footprint on the subway. It's got one plate folding mechanism only weighs twenty six pounds and it's you know how to arrange and it's electric. So it moves along. Nineteen miles an hour. I mean, you know it's gone incredible amount of torque because it's dual motor see can go fairly steep hills with it. And where do you make them? We make them in Shenzhen. Okay. Everything else okay. Correct. But we are in American company eight I'm proud to say, I, think out of every electric scooter company than. Scooters were the only American based electric, Scooter Company. And our customer services you incredible. So we treated like Patagonia were the only electric company that has a phone number. You can call people pick up the phone and talk to you. Now is the reason that sales went up the delete because of the maybe a lot of people don't want to take the bus and be around people and things like that. Yeah, I mean there's been this kind of seismic shift towards quota. Personal transportation people not wanting to get on public transportation, not get on ride shares, not getting share googlers, shared lifts, and so there's a real need right now you know there's especially you know New York skiers are becoming legal on Sunday. There there's you know we went volt markets to start because we couldn't choose between the two. La Is. The scooter epicenter of the planet. But L. New York's got a real need right now. So we decided to launch in. Baltimore. So. Anybody listening. We're now in the middle, the MO, the middle of summer. So when do you expect to start hitting Chicago in Boston and San Francisco and some of the other major markets? I. I'm not going to throw any any M. Any dates but those cities are are the first ones on our list. Okay. But certainly, they wanted to spend a thousand dollars you could buy you could buy one Tamar. Absolutely and you can't finance it on our website is well. But put thirty nine dollars a month into perspective. That's that's a dollar forty a day. New York subway ride today's three dollars and fifty cents for one Ri-. A rideshare scooter from lime were bird is about five bucks. So. Five dollars a ride. For. Daily commuter there's been two hundred dollars a month for grossly inferior product that half the time the batteries are dead or they're broken when you go to them not to mention the issues but share right now so. And it's yours and it's your germs and not somebody else's your germs and keep the streets clean et keeps your neighborhood looking good and it's no different for your city than owning a bicycle and you get a little bit of
Hollywood's Good Looking Debate
"There is a great Hollywood debate igniting as we speak and we need to talk about it. So it started with this tweet from one of the executive producers of one day at a time asking what male actor is the perfect level of good looking. But also seems fun funny and Goofy twitter collectively seems to think the answer is Paul Rudd. D You guys agree with that? I do. Agree with I. That is like the perfect. He's handsome. He's attractive. He's not intimidatingly attractive. But he's cute and he's also has a lot of personality. So he's just like he's he's Fine look you know what I mean like he's not like the sexiest man alive, but he's got something. Out. Here. Beers. I think he is sexy and especially when he did a man and he was only like chicken breasts, Barroga's leading up to it with all training. Okay. He turned to ninety Zadie looks going on. Who would be your picks? Yes and who did you pick? You know what is going to have to go down a rabbit hole. So follow me here. My pick was Chris Threat back in parks and rec days where he was a goofy and hard. But didn't know he was hot before he got around all hank, we'll see. The hottest NF heiress God is at that time and you know the minute he got hot s. she was like wait what. I didn't sign up for this. This is not what I wanted to go back to the. Keep on eating your Rama noodles like do not get on this diet. So. Unfortunately. The Globe show inevitable like it just happens. No matter what and it's. It's so welcomed by the person that's going through. But the people surrounding it is like I did want this. I chose Zach braff. I don't know. He was the that popped into my mind. Don't you think that makes sense like he's definitely sexy, but not overtly sexy, and he's just he has more of a specific luck. He's not liked so like he's kind of on that call ride. Oh this. Never, thought that he could. Kind Kinda. See when he's in a good suit like right there in the nice tie women minute. We were we supposed to pick someone that wasn't like overtly beautiful, but just like attractive, like has a thing. It's. Assignment I guess. So everyone just. Zach Braff to be employed. That's when he is at his sexiest is when he's consistently employ and that hasn't happened for quite some time. So he's not that sexy anymore. Why? Don't they every time I do see that graph weather that Craig I saw him at the Hollywood bowl, he always had the hottest girl with him.

"Other inexperienced. Rama members to fill out the team. It soon became clear that many team members were completely unqualified at first. The work progressed slowly than not at all. The company was even more appalled when they discovered that the rumour members had been feeding Frederick Lens classified information about the project. He required his followers to fax him every month with updates on their lives and some of the confidential information regarding deutchebanks reorganization ended up being disclosed. They'll Goldstein denied that there was a data breach of any sort the project was quickly shut down occurrences like this weren't uncommon and Wednesdays followers gained a bad reputation for being inexperienced and unreliable the gossip snowball eventually leading to the magazine. Article in response to the expose lenses lawyers attempted to get the magazine to rescind their reporting calling it oppression of religious beliefs. The plot failed but as the smoke cleared Frederick Lens still stood tall. It seemed no amount of bad press could topple his empire but he wouldn't remain untouchable forever when we return. We learned that dramatic fate of Frederick Lens and now the conclusion of the story Frederick Lens rose rapidly to prominence in the eighties when he declared that he was a reincarnated zen master. Who could lead others to enlightenment? But the foundation of his cult was shaken to its core. When former members accused thirty-seven-year-old lens of sexual and Financial Abuse Lens was knocked down? But not out over the course of the late eighties. He rebuilt his movement. He continued to run a successful lecture circuit which he used to milk his followers out of thousands of dollars then in nineteen ninety. Five forty five year old lends published his First Book Surfing the Himalayas. A spiritual adventure. This novel was a fictionalized version of his experiences studying under Tibetan Buddhist master the book's publication was controversial. There are still reports that Lens sexually and financially abused his followers. There was such a public backlash. That Warner books. The original publisher dropped him. However the book was then picked up by Saint Martin's press which also agreed to publish a sequel Lens promoted his book with a massive ad campaign reportedly spending over one million dollars to take out full page ads in rolling stone and The New York Times consequently surfing the Himalayas was a bestseller and made lens even more famous. He was now not only a spiritual leader but also a bestselling author. He even dipped his toes into the music industry. When it became a producer for new age band called Suzanne who made thirty one albums in a thirteen year span lens used his money and platform to reform his public image. He gave impressive donations to many charities supporting the ACLU Amnesty International and the National Museum of Women in the arts but even with all this goodwill surfing the Himalayas had dredged up the sexual abuse allegations against him and created a fresh wave of anti-roma sentiment. People became wiser to the cult's activities and grew suspicious about the rash of suicides. The group had left in. Its wake him lenses. Second Book was a financial flop. But that didn't seem to bother him much. In Nineteen Ninety eight at the age of forty eight he began planning the creation of the Lens Foundation for American Buddhism. The charity would offer financial aid to other Buddhist organizations the combined Buddhist teachings with secular American values but by the late nineties. His following had greatly diminished in spite of his aggressive marketing tactics. Some of his followers noticed that he became a shell of his former self around this time he appeared thin and sick when he gave lectures and no longer had the charisma he'd wants displayed. It all came to a head in April of nineteen ninety eight one month earlier. The disheveled forty eight year old guru called his then girlfriend brynn lacey to his long island mansion. The two of them had been planning a trip to the South Pacific and she was thrilled to join him on the vacation. But it turned out that lends wanted to go on an entirely different kind of journey according to Lacey. He told her he wanted them to die by suicide together. So they could go to the off world. They both ingested a lethal amount of volume lens took one hundred fifty pills and jumped into the long island sound lacy however only took fifty and therefore survived. She attempted to dive in after. Lens to stay with him but was unsuccessful in catching up to the strong current in a daze she wandered back to his estate and fell asleep. The police found Brin Lacy unconscious and Lens mentioned the next day along with the two dogs that they had also unsuccessfully attempted overdose when Lacey gave her barely coherent testimony. The police called in divers to search for his body about ten hours later. The divers located Frederick p Lens Zen Master Rama. He drowned while wearing a full suit and a dog collar around his neck lens left behind a substantial estate worth approximately eighteen million dollars. There is a battle for who would receive it as the guru had no heirs relatives or wives to women who claim to be lenses. Common-law wives attempted to gain control over his fortune but both claims were dismissed in court. After the legal battles ended the fight for the money only grew stranger both the Lens Foundation for American Buddhism and the National Audubon Society a nonprofit that protects birds and their habitats claimed to write to the Estate Lens had apparently declared audubon would get his money if the foundation hadn't been fully established by the time of his death. Audubon also argued. That lens was a cult figure and therefore the foundation for American Buddhism was an extension of his unscrupulous practices. The court could not in good conscience award the foundation any money. In the end the Audubon society settled and the bulk of the estate ended up going to lenses foundation. The foundation is still functioning today and uses the money they were given to distribute substantial grants since two thousand three after the estate was settled. It is granted around seven million dollars to one hundred Buddhist organizations across the country. The foundation is just one facet of the legacy of Frederick p Lens though. He seemed an innocent flower. Child turned high. Rent life coach. His actions speak to a darker story. The tale of a man who took advantage of a spiritual movement and warped it to make himself rich though many of lenses controversial and abusive actions are well documented. Some who follow American Buddhism's still see him as a positive figure but if there truly is a KARMIC force. Hopefully the truth of this story will outlive the propaganda..

"And now back to the story after training under Hindu master Sri Chinmoy thirty-one-year-old. Dr Frederick Lens founded his own Buddhist sect in one thousand nine hundred eighty one. He renamed himself Zen Master Rama and declared that he was enlightened over the next few years. He said about recruiting people at college campuses and seminars and began charging his devotees classes and computer. Science in Nineteen eighty-five the thirty five year old. Lens rebranded his Los Angeles based Organization From Lock Me To Rama seminars and began more aggressively advertising his lectures and classes. He claimed that he had led many past lives and all his experience enabled him to put his followers on the fast track to enlightenment but his idea of enlightenment was anything but traditional behind closed doors lens fully indulged in his hedonistic lifestyle embracing free love and psychedelic drugs at highly secretive. Get togethers with his followers. All the partying came with consequences. In the months and years afterward he became more unpredictable and Megalomania with his mood swinging from excessive friendliness to startling aggression the drugs affected lenses temperament but they also likely helped recruit many followers in the first place according to Dr Humphry. Osmond drugs such as LSD can create a religious experience those using such drugs feel a transcendence of time and space that sometimes believed to be an experience of the infinite in his book on psychedelics. Dr Humphry Osmond describes an experiment in which several Christian subjects were given Silas Sabin or magic mushrooms and listen to a two and a half hour broadcast of a Good Friday service after the experiment eighty percent of participants reported improved religious and spiritual lives over the subsequent six months with such drugs acting as gateways to divinity. It's easy to see why followers could accept lens as a prophet. The more people bought into his movement. The more Frederick Lens profited early on he charged his followers. Only small amounts approximately seven dollars to attend his lectures but once the group began growing he charged more and more eventually. He was charging his followers. Thousands of dollars to attend the seminars. By the end of Nineteen eighty-five Lens had an estimated annual income of more than five million dollars. All that money eventually drew controversy in the late eighties. His former followers accused lands of financial abuse. He lived a lavish life. While many devotees were saddled with debt but ultimately this was among the least damaging of lenses actions in the mid eighty s a UCLA student and follower of. Lens died by suicide. He left behind a note. That simply said Bye Rama. See you next time. We'll never know conclusively. Offenses teachings directly caused the young man's death but the implications seemed to be that. The student was seeking reincarnation of some sort and associated that reincarnation with lens no charges were ever filed following the incident in nineteen eighty six. Another of lenses followers overdosed on morphine. After giving the Rama one hundred thousand dollars he was discovered unclothed sitting in a Lotus position. In this case there was no evidence that the man intentionally ended his life but the tragic event brought even more negative attention to lenses organization families and friends of his supporters criticized. What they believed was the exploitation of their loved ones. Legal experts started to view. Lens not as the man behind a new age Buddhist sect but rather a dangerous cult leader. Lens was personally offended by the backlash in interviews around this time. One follower claimed that practicing meditation in America was like being Jewish in Nazi Germany. But Lens couldn't pretend to be a victim for long in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven. The perception of Lens as a new age feminist was abruptly shattered when Tubas former followers accused the master of sexual abuse. Anne Eastwood said the Guru had invited her over to his Malibu residents for a so called private meditation session there. He had pulled out a loaded pistol on her and raped her at gunpoint. Mercedes Hughes another follower said that Lens had seduced her in Los Angeles plying her with LSD to manipulate her into having sex. The two women publicly denounced lens to the media though neither filed criminal charges. A third woman named Barbara Sherman had a similar experience to Hughes. She joined the cult of the age of eighteen and like many of his other followers took computer courses and pass the bulk of her earnings along to Lens to attend his workshops. She was eventually invited to lenses personal residence where she was drugged with hallucinogens. In her words Lens then proceeded to have his way with her for three days before casually kicking her out of his house. Others reported. That lens fostered a culture and his cult were having sex with guru was considered a positive almost essential act one even claim that Lens had referred to as seamen as Liquid Enlightenment Lens immediately denied the accusations saying that the encounters with these women and any female members of his organization were completely consensual. He declared that members of his group were merely exploring so called tantric sex as a means to enlightenment he also compiled a one hundred seven. Page rebuttal document all the people who had denounced him. He referred to many as mentally unstable and untrustworthy. During this time people familiar with the Lens said that he became so stressed and depressed that he began losing his hair. The sexual allegations and suspicious deaths. Were not the only bad press that Rama had to shake off those that left the call to told journalists. That Frederick Lens dictated almost every aspect of his followers lives. Summoned Lenses group said they expected to report to him about what they wore and what movies they watched. They're also encouraged to limit their ties with those not involved in the cult as the damning reports piled up. The bad publicity caused a massive shift in the way. The Rama conducted business flyers and advertisement for lenses seminars and classes stopped making direct references to the guru instead. They hid behind names like advanced systems inc. Infinity Plus Inc or Hartford Meditation Society in the fall of Nineteen eighty-seven thirty-seven-year-old lands up rooted his entire operation to flee the controversy. He moved his base from Los Angeles to Washington DC saying that God was calling him there to oversee the coming elections then soon after he moved again to New York taking some of his core followers along with them though. The group was slightly fractured. The Rama cult now had members on both the east and the West Coast for a while. Lens disappeared from the news. He waited for the storm to blow over and then quietly continued giving lectures and seminars. Over the next few years he managed to rebuild his base of support but wherever he went controversy eventually followed in the spring of Nineteen ninety-one a New York business magazine worn tech companies to start checking. The references of their local hires very thoroughly. Some major businesses had recently started to run into problems. Thanks to Frederick Lens for years. One of the core teachings of the Rama was that his followers must succeed financially. To this end he encouraged his devotees to take courses in computer science and coding for the usual fee of thousands of dollars. Per Course some of the Rama's followers who studied computers founded lucrative software companies such as auto systems and team alliance some of these companies even gave up to fifty percent of their financial earnings to lands as a tribute but other followers aim to join existing software companies rather than to start their own many were under immense pressure from. Lens as he often told his supporters that if they didn't get a job they only had themselves to blame in desperation to please their guru. Some members of the cult started to falsify their resumes they began fraudulently listing other called members as references. Some of whom owned major companies and lied on their companions behalf. It was so important for lenses devotees to fulfil his expectation of financial success that they were willing to lie to achieve it while. This might seem extreme. It wasn't only lenses approval. They were seeking. Studies have shown that our job performance can be deeply linked to our self esteem. A Meta analysis of studies from the Journal of Applied Psychology in two thousand one suggested a possible correlation between people success at work and their self worth. It wasn't just about getting lenses validation. It was also about validating themselves even if it was based on a lie lens seized on his followers insecurities and subjected them to massive emotional strain. Moreover Lens allegedly encouraged such creative resume. Talk trick after all. According to him habitual meditation made the minds of his followers sharper than the average person's therefore companies would benefit from the energy. His followers would bring to the workplace regardless of whether they were actually as experienced as they claim to be. Unfortunately this didn't prove to be the case. Some of these hires caused significant problems that their new companies for instance in Nineteen ninety-one the Deutsche Bank of Frankfurt hired. Alan Goldstein Aroma. Member to be a project manager Goldstein then hired.
