"Ever. End of story. Nice. Very nice. All right. So if you want to learn the 21 minutes of this yoga technique, how long does it take to learn the inner engineering? Is it like 21 minutes or 48 minutes or weeks or months or years? You just need a dedicated 30 to 36 hours of time. So first you take the 7 classes online. Okay, I love you. 36 hours to learn a 21 minute technique. Yes, because this is the most authentic and tried and tested form of yoga, coming from the inventor of yoga himself, you know, the adiyogi, the first yogi himself. So this is a very authentic technique. Like I said, truly time and test it for all. So is this mindset of this 36 hours or is it also the forms? Because I know, yes, you do go through 7 online classes. Yes, those exactly rob. It sets your mindset to receive the technology. So you first go through 7 online classes. And then you partake in the inter engineering initiation process. And that's also a few hours that you go through. And that's where you learn the actual technique of 21 minutes. But to even teach you that 21 minute technique, we have to spend certain amount of time with you. So you learn the technique properly. Because, you know, anything that you do only if you do it correctly it works, correct? Right. Right? Even if you're tightening a screw, you need a proper form of screwdriver. You need to know which way to turn. You need to know how to tighten it in order for it to work. So just like that, this is a tool. Inner engineering, there's a tool and technology for your total well-being that brings your transformation on all levels. So you need to learn the technique of 21 minutes properly. And for that, we need to spend a certain amount of time with you so you learn it exactly the way you need to do it. Now, are you just a practitioner of inner engineering or are you also a teacher? Is it part or are you part of that? Or are you just someone who just shouts from the rooftops because this transformed your life? I don't teach it, but through my podcast, I share stories about it because you just shout from the rooftops. I love it. I love it. Okay. I don't get, you know, the isha foundation or sadhguru doesn't pay me. I do it for the love of the practice. It's awesome. My life. Yes. I'm sure someone who's listening to my go.

It's a pure science that technology of well-being in the form of yoga. That's very cool. All right, we talked about clarity. Balance. Now, my favorite word, one of my most favorite words in addition to transformation, which you have said, many, many times, so you're definitely on the right podcast, is creativity. Yes. Yes. Well, for, you know, before I took inner engineering, I could never imagine having a podcast for myself. But because I was practicing this yogic technology regularly, this was just born in the pandemic through creative process, right people came and showed up to help me launch it, right? People came to become guests, right? People still come up and help me with the tech aspects. So a lot of creative things is just flour within me and everything that I do, my Twitter is always buzzing. My Instagram is always buzzing. I create multiple content. I enjoy creating stories, telling stories. So a lot of creative things are happening within me. And I give full credit again to the inter engineering technology that brings that creativity. The creator within me becomes alive to bring the creation forward. Wow, that's amazing. Yes. That's amazing. So you have a podcast. And it's called sacred balance. Oh, so the podcast is thinking. I thought, okay, I thought that was your process, the sacred balance project. Okay, got it. Yes. All right. Both our secret ballots. Oh, so it is two for one. Okay, it's two for one. Okay, got it.

"Have friends that may know, but I don't have any idea. Yes. Yeah. But you know that blissful feeling that you have, but at the same time, you're so active. Okay, I'll admit it. During the pandemic, my friend gave me these gummies 'cause I love gummy bears, had no idea they were special gummy bears, and yeah, I was very blissed out and very, very calm, just like, wow. I just, I don't care that the world is falling apart. I just don't care. It's okay. I'm like a laugh some more. Yeah, no, I understand that. And, you know, at the same time, you know what this technology does is not only your blissful, but you're active and aware. What, you know, marijuana does is it kind of dulls you a little. Yeah. And that dullness I don't fancy. I want to be, I want to be blissed out at the same time when I got to do things. Really clear. I can do things and clarity. You know, I want to be so blessed out that when I'm active, I don't even, you know, the stress doesn't even touch me. That's the kind of blissfulness I enjoy. And that's what this technology does. And if you notice most of Americans don't sleep well. What this technology has given me, I sleep like a child. And I only need like 6 hours. I just I'm up and about and ready to go tackle, you know, whatever I need to do embrace the world with a smile. And it just keeps me rejuvenated and refreshed. I sleep better. I sleep deeper and I sleep less and at the same time I'm blissful during the day. And I'm like, wow. If I had found this when I was in my 20s when I was seeking when I was bugging my dad, dad, you know, we come from India, all these yogic technologies come from India, introduced me to some of this stuff dad. Right, right. You know, I didn't find it then, but I found it, you know, later, which is I'm still very grateful. But those who are listening, let's say, you know, all your listeners who may be younger and seeking, you know, but you know what they say. You know what they say. Right. When the time is right. The teacher will appear you. Yes. So exactly what happened to you to me. This is a higher level of consciousness. And you might not have been ready for it. Yes, possibly not. Maybe I needed to roam about the world before I was ready. Or maybe you needed to see these other people and know that this is not the path that you're to go on, because imagine for a moment. I always like to do this. Imagine for a moment 20 years ago. You discovered inner engineering and it was too much and you like, this is not for me. Yes. And then maybe give it up and didn't give it a thought again. And you look and look at how different your life would have been because you already decided that Noah wasn't for you. So now, 20 years later, how different your life would be because now discovered. But if you discovered in the past, you would have just said, no, it's not for me. Yes, because I was so hungry for it. I was so ready for it. I embraced it like, you know, not tomorrow. So it has done wonders for me because I embraced it in its full form in a complete wholehearted way. And I practice it with utmost devotion towards it. And it flowers. It blossoms every day. It transforms my life. That's wonderful. Now, the sacred balance project is that tell me more about that. So we focus on three different wings. At the moment we're focused on two. We bring in stories of transformation from all across the world. People from all walks of life. People who have been touched by this yogic technology of 21 minutes called inter engineering. And the second wing we have is environmental awareness. So we work with farmers and different people who are doing organic farming. And doing more creating more awareness for better environment all around us. So that's what the balance is all about environment and yoga. I love it. Okay. So when you're bio, you say you're a storyteller. I love stories. Life is about stories. So I'm going to put you on the spot. Are you ready? Go ahead. Yes. So I would love for you to share with me. A story. Just a few minutes story, but I want to hear you tell me a story. Okay. How's that for putting on the spot? Sure. All right. Sure. So once upon a time, there was a lady who came on my podcast. She was a cancer survivor. She was so weak so feeble and one day her friend kept sending her different videos from YouTube in music and different things to make her feel better. She would look at it and just be, you know, she was a little bit irritated by everything chemo and everything that she was dealing with. And she was a little turned off by everything her friends were sending to her. So she's just kind of overlooked it and didn't give it a thought. One day, another friend of her sent her something from YouTube and requested her that please just take a look. See, you see what you think. Just for my sake, just for a few minutes take a look and take a listen. So she listened. And as soon as she listened, she was just mesmerized by everything that was being said in that video and the sounds and the music and then she listened to one on YouTube, then she listened to another on YouTube, and then she listened to thousands of them. And then she came across a chant, which was a concentrated chant, and then she couldn't stop listening to those chants. And she kept going and something started transforming within her that she became so curious about this that that she decided to go to India. Now before she wanted to go to India, she wanted to find out a little bit more. So she contacted the. Center here in Tennessee, isha institute of inner sciences in Tennessee. And she said I need to do this. So they told her, well, you need to first take inner engineering before you progress onto this path because that's the first thing that you need to learn this 21 minute yoga technique. So she was so feeble so weak, she couldn't drive. Nothing was available in her area in Florida where she was. None of the classes were being offered at that time. Just like me, she had to wait. So she looked around and looked around and that she started taking first, the inner engineering class online because the 7 first classes were available online. So she took those. And then by her surprise, after a month or so, all of a sudden, we're a class had never been offered near her suburb where she wouldn't even have to drive that far a class of initiation into the chambal we practice the 21 minute practice became available. So that she went there and took the class and again never looked back. She while being a cancer survivor went to India to a part in consecration process, with sadhguru, and then came back and wanted to meet sadhguru and ask him certain questions about death because that's for several years came up again and again for her. She was facing death in every way because she was recovering. She was going through a pretty severe type of cancer and the doctors told her a few if you go through this. And if you come back, this will be a miracle. And she did because she had the support of this technology of yoga and she transformed her entire life because she, again, wholeheartedly embraces and brought this technology of yoga into her life. And it brought her true well-being and she lived happily ever after. Now she creates chronic based recipes where she creates beautiful yummy food by the beach where she lives. She practices this particular type of yoga given by sadhguru in the form of inner engineering and she is blissful and happy as.

"Up for me. I'm like, okay, this one or this one. And I go, do it again, and they go, this one or this one, I'm like, okay, are you playing games of me? Because I don't see the difference, and he goes, it's subtle, and I go this one. Oh, yeah, exactly. But eventually it's amazing, and this may be your spiritual way is that that you look at it and then you kind of relax and then go this one or this and I go, oh, that one. This one or this one. And when you get out of your head and just into your bean, I think that's when things open up. Yes. And you know that line that's the clear one. I was living the blurry line before, where things were just blurry. And when inter engineering technology came into my life, everything tells transform and the clear line became clear and clear and sharper and sharper. Now my path to freedom possibility, new beginnings, new new things that I haven't even imagined for myself are opening up opening up. For example, you, you coming into my life and me reaching out to you and saying, rob, let's do this together. I would have never imagined that, like, several years ago. So these are the some of the examples that are opening up things to start aligning because the lubrication of whatever you call that introduction to the creator within myself has taken a new possibility is being reborn every second I practice this technology. And it keeps transforming me keeps renewing me keeps rejuvenating me. Keeps just pushing me forward beyond my wildest imagination. That's incredible. So share with me what exactly engineering is, you said, you mentioned yoga. But I know nothing about it, so is it a yoga practice like I'm familiar with hot yoga and yoga, tell me more about what this is all about? Sure, of course. In our engineering is a 21 minute yogic technique given by sadhguru, and you practice it every day. And it's in a form of yoga, you do some, you know, yogic postures. And there's some breathing involved. There's meditation at the end involved. So it's a 21 minute practice. That is taught to you that's imparted into you. It's like a chip that's downloaded within you. You go through the initiation process. And you just imbibe that. And every day you're practices, the more you nurture and do this practice every day, it takes a new blossoming form. And it just develops into a beautiful flower each day. I love that. Well, one of the things we promised is that we would talk about the sacred balance in your life. So what does that mean to you? So, you know, I think sacred balance is when everything in your life is aligned. You know, your mind body emotions and energies. When they're aligned, they do the best for you. Whatever is best meant for you, starts aligning and happening. And without balance, imagine, you know, when you're dizzy and you're trying to walk or go up and down the stairs. Can you imagine doing anything without balance? So balance is aligning your emotions, energies and everything, all those four dimensions into a complete alignment and that's done through the inner engineering technology. So essentially balance is being introduced to that technology and aligning your whole system. I love it. Yeah. It's it feels really good. I was in martial arts for a long time. And one of my most favorite things was closing my eyes, and you have to balance and different ways. And it was it was really cool. It was almost a very funny because now I think back it, it was a very spiritual experience of because when you get in the right mode and you just relax. Yes. It is very easy to balance. And you know, you said a keyword when you relax. So what inner engineering technology gives you rob is it gives you ultimate relaxation. Now say you didn't sleep well at night, right? You sit down for 21 minutes and you do this, you'll get technique. You will feel like you slept for 6 hours within after those 21 minutes. That's how much it relaxes you. It brings a level of ease that you haven't imagined. Everything in your life becomes filled with ease. Like I am speaking to you right now, other people are in the room. My focus is just you and me and how I can just be a total ease and just whatever means, you know, that I need to say, we'll just flow through me. And that is so beautiful because when you're at ease, so many things you can do. So many things can you can balance so many things you can juggle with. And you don't have to worry. But when you're constantly stressed, no, you're not at ease, right? Absolutely. It's interesting. So I just did a podcast this morning for my other podcast, which is a living law of action show had a very good friend of mine on, and his name is noble gibbons, and we were talking about this very same thing. So when you're stressed and you're in an emotionally upsetting situation, you get into the mode of fight, flight or freeze. And what he was talking about and I think this is perfect for this conversation is that he's in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. He is an older guy, and he gets into bouts with younger man and younger women. And what happens is he's a blue belt, and you come in as a white belt and the new people come in and they're, you know, I'll say, in essence, fighting him. Whatever. They're spout bouting with them. And so when they're doing it, they're like, and they're using all the energy and they're doing all this. And he's like, oh, and he's just all very calm. And what he was saying was, and I think this is so powerful that when you're in that hyper sensitive mode and you're in the panic mode of fight flight or freeze, those are the only options you see. However, when you get calm and you have the balance of that you're in a calm clear, mental state, you have lots of options, even hundreds of options of ways that you can compete. So the balance in your life when you get that calm, opens up so much more because when you're in those heightened states of panic and a cortisol level is going off in your brain. Well, you can't see the forest through the trees. You can't see anything. It's almost like you have blurred glasses on. And when you take a moment to breathe. Yes. Then. Yeah. The whole world opens up. Absolutely. This is what this technology does. I'm often sold list out, but at the same time so active. It amazes me that I'm in a, you know, when people smoke pot and when they're in that list out mode, right? No, no. I don't know what I have no idea what that means to ingest. Ingest that. No, I have no idea. I've heard about it, but now I have no idea. Never, never. I've never heard of that yet. I.

"Science and technology. For total well-being. We're live on Clubhouse with a studio audience. Welcome to life transformation radio. Thank you so much rob for having me. It's my pleasure. Absolutely. It's kind of cool. So we're here in Clubhouse. We have an audience and what happens on Clubhouse doesn't necessarily stand Clubhouse. So this call is being recorded. This show has been recorded, and we're glad to have you here in the audience and we're glad to have you up here on stage with me. So welcome to life transformation radio. Glad to have you here. We met on Clubhouse, which is kind of cool. The power of technology and social media gotta love that. So welcome welcome welcome. And I love what we're going to talk about today. The sacred balance in your life clarity, balance creativity, all the buzzwords that I love. So let's just dive a little bit into your where you came from. So you're born in the U.S. and where were you, where did you hang out? I actually was born in India, but yes, when I was young and you know, I went through just like everybody, high school, college and then I moved to Philadelphia, and I was, you know, just happy, I was always content with my life. And but I was seeking deeper answers. I wanted something more than what normal people call, you know, just having a job, a home, a family. I was seeking something deeper. You know, something that could truly transform my life is what I was seeking. And that's what this is all about. I love it. So growing up were you a little different than your family members in your seeking of that inner peace, the clarity, the universal activity that you could feel rumbling deep inside you? Absolutely. I always knew that what I am is much more beyond my body and my mind. There is something within me that, you know, the creator himself has put in whether you want to call it a form of creativity. You know, in anything that is beyond just what you'd call normal body and mind. And that is what I was seeking. What is that about? You know, when you close your eyes and sit down, you know that you're more than just those two things. And that's what I wanted to figure out what it is all about. What this life is all about what the magic of life is all about is what I was seeking. I love that. So were you sharing that with your family and your friends as you were growing up? Yes, actually, I was very close to my father and he was a prominent newspaper guy in India. So he had access to a lot of things like whether you call a spiritual gurus or masters or forms of yoga or whatever I wanted to pursue whether in the form of music or creativity in any way, he was very supportive and he deeply understood this quest that I had within me. And he made many things possible for me to pursue those avenues. That's really wonderful. That's really wonderful. Now where your Friends as open to hearing about your transformation to finding more about your spiritual path? Not really, I would say no, because I always found my Friends to be wanting to fit in, wanting to, let's say, you know, as I grew up and went to college, always wanting to go out or clubbing or just normal what you call just drinking and being happy. And I was seeking something even beyond that. Those things are great and you want to enjoy and you want to socialize with your friends and have fun. There's nothing wrong in it. But something beyond that, what else could I tap into? That could bring me to a next level, because life is all about pushing those boundaries and going to next and next and next level. And that's what I was seeking. I love that. Now, you did eventually go to India, and you had a journey there. But what was it like before you went to India, were you doing meditation? What were you doing gratitude? What were you doing as you prepared? Little did you know you're preparing to get to India. I was actually just very happy living my life. I had a beautiful home and a wonderful life and just very content. And just living my life. And my dad made it possible at night told him that, you know, while he was still alive, I said, can you set up something where I can go to different masters and different schools of yoga, something that nobody even in India knows about introduced me to people like that introduced me to technologies like that introduced me to this transformational possibilities that could truly change my life, introduced me to those kind of people and things. So he did do that. Though, I didn't meet anyone worth dwelling into. He did his best, but at that time, I did not meet anyone. And then I came back and started living my life and was just happy go lucky, very content. I've always been sweet and peaceful within myself. But as I said, I was still seeking. I still had some questions that were unanswered. And I wanted to tap into that next phase of my life and see how I can figure out some answers deeper answers that bring me even more clarity, more beauty, more joy, more bliss, you know, more possibilities that I haven't even yet imagine is what I was seeking. Wow. And then there's a transformation in your life and then all of a sudden you discovered what you were seeking. Yes. So one day I was sitting in my living room on Sunday morning, having brunch just enjoying my life. And I was watching a PBS station where they played cultural programs during Sunday afternoon, like around 1230. And I was watching that program and one interviewer came on to interview sadhguru. Now sadhguru is a mystic visionary. He's a yoga master. And he came on and as soon as my eyes laid upon this guy, I was hooked as if this is a real deal. Someone just real has walked in. And with the clarity with which he spoke that the things that he said just blew my mind. And I knew in that moment I needed to take an engineering. That was the transformation of technology that he was offering. And I was like, how could I tap into this? Where can I learn it? How can I really make this available in my life? So at that time, inter engineering class wasn't readily available. So I waited and just like everyone does, I watched his YouTube videos to get more familiar with everything all the technologies he was offering in the form of yoga and well-being. So I did. And then the September 2016, a class of inter engineering was being offered in Philadelphia area. And I took it and I've never looked back. My life has been transformed in the ways that I can not tell you. Like you go to optometrist office and when they say one or two? Oh, yeah. And clearer line comes up. My life. You know what? It never comes.

It's it's like a co lassic kind of movie villain that we don't know if he's guilty of what he's accused of but we know is guilty of something definite strange character but he has humor is playful. He's all those things that make you remember character. So did you feel when you first read the script. No i said what is this. I don't wanna do this. I is was actually buy those my response. I thought you know. Maybe i should explore different territory. You know. I played a kind of than the darker side of the moon. A bit and You know.

I'd done before so he seemed really game And the prospect to working with denzel washington one of my heroes and then rami malek in the mix. It was just couldn't say no. And what i love about you.

But there's one point where they both taking you to the police station in la. It's an interrogation room and the phone rings and albert says is that for me. You know quite a quite innocent with it. It's that kind of thing that he's open to sort of any moment until he's ready to spring with something that will make denzel crazy. Sic chrissy i. there's nothing more fun than you know. antagonizing the other characters in the film and for spar he knew he uses that as a tool a likes to keep people off balance off center and humor is one of the ways that he does it and it was quite fun to show on saddened to bring all kinds of different Ideas for ad libs and improv and John lee hancock was amazing. Because you know he was the writer as well but incredibly generous with the opportunity to improvise ad-lib and he really just let me go to town.

It must really like my car. Do I was the trunk space. Denzel Washington gives a complex performance as a cop willing to bend the rules. Unlike his idealistic deputy, Ramsey Malik during a cat and mouse game with Jared Leto's creepy suspect, writer director John Lee Hancock has been trying to get a script made since 1993 feeling like a nineties thriller like the Silence of the Lambs.

The Little Things Movie Review
"Okay one less title. That's out this week. This went on in theaters and on. Hbo max i believe It's the little things which is a detective thriller. It is both set in the early nineties and feels a little bit like a time. Capsule from early nineties It starts in washington with rami. Malik and jared leto. Three best actor oscar winners. That's kind of a rare sight There it. I enjoyed the throwback quality of it while also thinking it was yet another of the stone cold boomers. We're talking about this week Richard i think you might have enjoyed it. Listen i did even. I didn't like it at all. I really wanted it to be something specific that of that was written in the early nineties. Steven spielberg directed. Imagine so strange are and then. I think clint eastwood was looking at it and deigned veto and finally john lee hancock wrote it decided to make himself twenty seven years later. I wanted it to be kind of one of those nineties. Post silence of the lambs. Serial killer studio thrillers. You know a little grimy kind of silly but like engaging good detective work kind of stuff and it has those trappings but at the center is kind of a weird void at the center. I think it's kind of trying to be about something bigger and fails at that. And so everything else kind of doesn't get its proper do denzel washington's always good rummy. Malik is fine. Jared leto. People people's tolerance level of him certainly varies. And he's really doing a thing you know and i found it engaging for like the first scene and then i was like okay i get it. I don't even more so for me. It was just like it had all these interesting component parts. But the whole didn't really didn't do it for me.
Apple-growing is getting more difficult in many areas
"Crunchy ripe apples or a fall treat. But in many areas, growing apples is becoming more difficult as the climate changes in the Midwest for example, were experiencing increasingly hot and wet weather. What it's done is made fungal diseases more and more of a problem later and later in the season. Rami Aroma owns Adams to apples an organic orchard in Wisconsin to improve its yields. He grows disease resistant strains like honey crisp, and he has planted his trees closer together so that they can grow on Trellis almost like grapevines. So there's a lot more light and air that's going into the tree Samis less disease. Ever Omi also prunes his trees to promote good air circulation and when needed he applies in organic fungicide. But, even if the fruit looks great, rain can cause other problems for apple growers. For example, wet weather can deter customers from visiting you pick orchards that also offer hay rides and other fall fund. So ever Roma says, if the trend towards wetter weather continues, the industry will need to adapt I think there's going to need to be a lot of sharing between growers to say, okay, this is what works. So you got to do this to be able to
2020 Fall Movie Preview
"Hi everybody I am Peter Travers and welcome to this special edition of Popcorn where creed you all the movies opening between Labor Day and New Year's Eve I know wait what aren't we in a pandemic Will really be moved this fall and theaters to show them in I mean the answer to both those questions is a huge. Yes. Sixty two percent of all US theaters are open now and there's going to be more to come covid permitting, of course, and those movies that can't make it to the multiplex will be available for rental or streaming in sickness and in health people, you can't keep a good movie down. So let's start with the blockbusters that are out there. Number one is tenant. Brain Teasing epoch from Dark Knight Director. Christopher. Nolan. That's geared to fire up the fall season and in theaters and with your mask and distancing in place you can strap in for this kind of Christopher Nolan throw ride and watch the spy master he's played by John David Washington give James Bond a run for his money you know you just have to. Get your head around the physics in this movie. Maybe don't know about how you can go forward and backwards in time at the same time I don't know either I was a little confused by that but you'll be glued to the visual miracles that are on screen here every cent of tenants two, hundred, million dollars production budget shows up onscreen Eisele popped. Jaw dropped pulses. Oh, pound all that good stuff movies and back baby. So what else do we have? We have Moulin which is out there right now and you'll check in Disney plus to watch this because it's not in theaters but you can rent it and you could see live action film of the Disney animated hit about a young woman who disguises. Herself as a man to replace her sick father in the Imperial Army the new moon is not musical and there's no comic relief from eating Murphy as the Voice of a fast talking dragon named Moo Shu. This is not that kind of movie. There's no whitewashing but using Western actors in the drawn from Chinese legend and as Rouland the astounding Lou ye. Leads in Asian cast that includes martial arts icon jet. Li is the emperor up and China's leading actress Gong Li as shape shifting witch who teaches on how to survive and prosper in a man's world. Look move on is not your typical princess. She's a warrior fighting for her place in the world prepare to be well. Next up wonder woman one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, the sequel to the two thousand seventeen smash that made a star of Gal. Gadot, remember her places the DC comics immortal wonder woman into the cold. War where she does battle with the media tycoon played by Pedro Pascal and the villainous Cheetah played by Kristen Wiig always to me an asset in any movie Chris. Pine also returns Steve Trevor The American. Pilot that one woman loves I know didn't he die the last time during World War? One people you gotta go with this this is Hollywood. So if we can borrow wonder woman's last sube truth for a moment, credibility isn't the issue here. It's the show stopping stunts engineered by returning director Petty Jenkins executed by Godot, and she's a formal Israeli military structure. So you know you're in for a really good time. Next up is black widow look wonder woman has competition already. You know we've been waiting since spring for Marvel to let its first solo black widow epic out of storage and into theaters. Now, the wait is over Scarlett. Johansson is back in action as Natasha Romanoff Aka black widow. She's the Russian assassin with no superpowers road just skills she's like the female Batman this Prequel looks back, Arjun story in it's a doozie forints pugh is there as Natasha, surrogate says sister and Rachel Vice is the leader of this black widow organization. It's not just one black widow you can become a black widow tells witness business. So Watch your back wonder woman next up candyman there's nothing like the Primo horror. Film to get us all back in the dark of a theater where we can scream bloody hearts out behind a mask of course, end with get outs Jordan peele writing the screenplay. This direct sequel to nineteen ninety two's cult fright fest stars Watchmen Emmy nominee Jadu Martine the second as a visual artist drawn back to those housing projects in Chicago's Cabrini-green where he was born now the whole place is gentrified beyond recognition but the green is still haunted by Candyman Tony Todd an urban legend who still kills anyone who summoned him by saying his name five times. Okay. Altogether now with me candyman candyman candyman candyman candyman, we did it. So I'm looking around here to see if some him up. Okay next up no time to die look no red blooded movie Fan is GonNa Think of missing Daniel. Craig's fifth and final outing James Bond you know for my money Craig and Sean Connery are in dead heat for the best bond ever. This one directed by Kerry from Gonzaga who did true detective from Script Co written get this by sleeping bags phoebe Wall Rich Daniel Craig asks for her because he really wants a little feminist touch to this. This is the. Twenty fifth, all seven Cape and you know this is a record and we're GONNA lose Daniel Craig. But in the movie James Bond's been retired for five years and he gets called back in. You know that's what happens to everybody from the Godfather on. You know Bohemian Rhapsody oscar-winner. Rami ballot plays the facially scarred villain named SAFM and he's described the director as more dangerous than anyone bond has ever encounter. Man How about you?
Lebanon prime minister and government step down after Beirut explosion
"Lebanon marked a moment of silence today. One week after that massive explosion in Beirut. The blast killed more than 160 people and injured thousands more. It's also broke down brought down the current government. Rommie Corey is a senior fellow and professor of journalism at the American University in Beirut. And Rami, a prime minister and the entire Cabinet resigning seems significant. But what do you think this will lead to real reform in Lebanon? The kind of change that protesters are asking for. The resignation of the Cabinet is significant only in the sense that it was forced by the demonstrations. The intensity of the demonstrations. It's not significant in the modern history of Lebanon because the ruling elite who had their sectarian parties and have run the country like oligarchy click for the last 25 years. They just get together and pick out new Cabinet ministers and new prime minister and they reappoint the Cabinet and the same policies tend to continue. That's been the pattern so far. This is what the protesters want to break. They want to break this pattern. And put in a proper effective, clean, efficient and accountable government that works according to the rule of law and can address the many problems off a country that isn't collapse. So it's significant on one level, but at another level of modern will depend on what happens next. That system that you're talking about that power sharing structure that click as you called it. Has been blamed for the country's past political instability in division. So what happens now? Will there be new elections and well those elections be enough. You're going to get a lot of jockeying for position and jockeying for power and a lot of nonsense being spoken by a lot of people. The bottom line is there's only two really powers in the country and now one is the mass of citizens who are protesting and who demand real change. So the protesters in one hand and then the political power Really the sectarian leaders, mainly Hezbollah, on the other hand, will negotiate. The protesters want significant really change? This is what really we have to keep our eye on. Will the government that's formed? Whoever it is? Will it have the really authority to address the rial crisis issues and we will find that out? I think in the coming month or two, you know, Lebanon has a long history of political unrest that the dates back Decades, and you mentioned the people there. They've been living it. They know it. But I want to ask you about some touch points that may have led to this point. I mean, many people know that thousands of people died and A brutal civil war in Lebanon between 75 in 1990. I mean, did the agreement that ended that war set the stage in a way for what's happening today? The ending of the war was simply the latest turning point that adjusted. The balance of power in the parliament made it 50% question 50% Muslim, But these are just minor points really. Compared to the bigger points, which is that the people who have actually been in the seats of power have been terrible rulers on they've essentially become super rich. Without addressing the needs ofthe the people as the people have become super port, but the the root cause it's both domestic politics. Regional politics, which is mostly Israel and Iran and Syria and Saudi Arabia and other people who Interfere and Lebanon and global politics back in the Cold War.

You might be surprised to hear that we've never done episode of astronomy cast featuring beetlejuice. Were good news. This is that episode. Let's talk about the Star. Why it might be dimming. And what could happen if it explodes as Super Noah I? I've had to do a search for I actually You know wrote on my intro and I think we suggest that wanted to pursue put on the calendar and like all of this time. We've talked about a Ryan. We've talked about the way stars die and we've obviously mentioned bill many times as a candidate for new supernova but had never actually spent a whole episode on this one specific star. Well obviously good timing on our part because it's so interesting right now So what does beetlejuice? It is a red supergiant star that is visible to both the northern and Southern Hemisphere. We have no hemispheric bias. In choosing this star it has evolved off the main sequence which means it is no longer burning hydrogen in its very core and it probably did this only about a million years ago and now it is systematically burning through heavier and heavier shells of elements deep in its well. Many many solar mass self as it hangs out shining bright in the northern winter and the southern summer and it is. It is a Ryan's right shoulder. I mean when you look at it. Looks like it's on the left but if you were a Ryan and you were facing towards us than it would be his right shoulder and there's some fascinating history on its name and I have to admit I went down a little bit of a rabbit hole. Prepping for this episode. It's it's name is Arabic and yes over. The years has probably been missed. Transcribed so that there are those who believe that it translates as a Ryan's armpit right and this can be caused by dropping a little dot under one of the characters at wrong moment in time It probably has a much better name than a Ryan's armpit. This is still up for a fair amount of discussion. We'll actually one of our one of our viewers Rami amid who speaks Arabic. He's saying that it is the name comes from the Arabic Abbott L. Josiah which literally means the armpit of the mighty hunter so that sounds better than Orion armpit. It's of the mighty hunter it's true. It's yeah true and we. We're going to mispronounce it and of course. The hilarious thing is is how people give us such a hard time. Because they're expecting that it should be beetlejuice. Yes but and we tend to say bail juice and that is. That's a little bit of a holdover from. I think the way they used to describe it before the movie came out. Seattle has has shifted it to Beatlemania. Even that isn't correct so so maybe we can after. The fact may be get Susie to get maybe Romney or someone to do the proper Arabic pronunciation in the show and then you know then that conserve as the as sort of the standby and I've heard a lot of people like even the German say people are say that well. Actually it's a German word but it's not no near Bec- yes it comes from. Yeah it's has an Arabic root so anyway. Yeah so we're going to say bill. And maybe even shifted beetlejuice every now and then Please just just bear with us and however you choose to pronounce it. This isn't an object that was strictly noted and observed by a people living around the Mediterranean Ocean. This is an object that it's variable in its brightness as all of us can currently go out and see and this variability appears to have. I been noted by the aborigines of Australia. It it is a star crops up in the Lore of society after sisters after society but the science the awesome saw. Science is why we're here today because when you ask which objects in the sky are most likely to go boom. This is one of the two ADA crane has the other it is strictly southern hemisphere. Cirilli beetlejuice is the one we want so that all of us can enjoy the experience. And the problem is we don't know when this is going to occur but scientifically reproduced sure. It's not now right but you can hope to be wrong. Yes yes so. It's it's a random event. We'll talk about this a little bit about what's going on and how we might know but So I wanNA talk a bit about just what stage it is kind of star. It is compared to say a star like our Sun. So so how does this star compare to to our son? I radically different. Our our son is because it is ours. It is used as the measuring stick by which we well measure everything outright. It weighs one the Sun. Exactly yeah exactly one. The Sun Beetlejuice is estimated that when it was in the same of illusionary stages that our son when it was on the main sequence burning hydrogen in its core. It's estimated to have been just under twenty solar masses if we had seen it during that stage it would've been one of those bright blue o type stars like we love to enjoy in the Orion Nebula Orion is a massive star forming region. That entire swath of the sky is rich in all the things needed to make stars and there's lots of young stars in that direction well beetlejuice isn't necessarily young. It finished burning all of that hydrogen. But because it's so massive as it evolved off of the main sequence as it expanded out it didn't go through this massive flash that we see in smaller stars where it suddenly was like boom. I'M GONNA burn helium in my core instead because it was so massive it was able to gradually transition into doing this and as it did it just basically migrated sideways across the color magnitude diagram. That hurts been Russel Diagram ending up in the top center of that diagram being cool red and kind of unable to hold onto all of its atmosphere.
Building Strategic Partnerships with Shelley Worrell, Founder of caribBEING
"Tell us what is being and what is your job behind his project. Sir So we actually envisioned a an interesting so when we started we the first very first program that we put up with Bob. Hope for months and really it was about. It was an extension of all of my worth in and I wouldn't say my my work but also my travels right so my undergraduates is cultural studies and with the concentration on Rabin and then in Grad School. I and that's making up with Kirby I am. I always saw content right. Tv though distributed content as being a huge gap in the Caribbean space. Why are we not seeing ourselves? Elected in media Caribbean space. Do you mean like Caribbean however like looking at me Erica programming period right. So whether it's you know programming featuring people crimen stories premium people. I saw that as a huge gas. And and the other thing I had issues with for Sorta you know the way. Tourism is package in the region. So I started Grad school studying cultural heritage tourism and I ended up making a pivot to media studies but both programs are really about addressing these problems directly either through tourism cultural heritage tourism. Which again my life has come full circle and or media or a little bit about like some of the issues that you see in cultural tourism because when okay so I spend a lotta time in like crown heights and flatbush Andy's areas and you know having affinity for like I guess like Dancehall and musical from you know the islands like Calypso Soka. It may be but that's also just because of like influences that I've got as a young person growing up in New York but was Indians like for like people are not familiar with them like they kind of a lot of people on it like a paint them in one brush shirt so I kinda like how certain South Americans are. All the guys are all Mexicans Asians or deemed as you guys are all Chinese when people think like Zinnias. They're like oh you guys are all you guys all speak. Patois guys you must love so for those of us. That are not familiar. You know like. Can you kind of describe? Tell his like what are some issues that you see and you know like how tourism is packaged when it represents you know Caribbean and like just some of the misconceptions where like if you could kind of explained there actually differences between Trinidad Haiti Jamaica Right. Yeah Yeah I mean that's like a whole I mean we do a series on average version but at a couple things that I would mention one thing is when you think about Carnival right here on. Carnival has become wildly popular. Soka is trending around the world. And I talk about this. A lot with my friends In the region as well as here meaning in the region the Caribbean region and become overly. It's like sex tourism right so when you look at Soka you just think about women whining right and and of course but from the culture are not right. It's some it's sort of like this thing that you want to engage in right but there's so in but in a very overtly sexual manner right so you know so I think like the over sexualization of the female body has become like a very prevalent issue in in Carnival Culture. And that's you know throughout the region and and that's really not what carnival is about right. It's what's becoming right. And when you think about like you know carnival now you're thinking you're thinking beads. You're thinking you know that I can go line on somebody right or you know now. It's not only wining on people. I mean you're seeing men are touching women right like without their permission and you know we can be in the talk about this two years ago at the Brooklyn Museum as part of our residency. Because you know women got shot in During Juba because she refused to dance with someone and he just shot her I wa. I heard about that I lived on Rami like Juvie. Has A for people from from those areas. Juve has a juvenile. Tends to always have some issues like recently. I mean there was a lot of news around it right but I mean I think a lot of hype too right so and just misinformation and mischaracterizing the whole event with an associated with violence. So for those of us. That are not familiar with what you say. As is the event that were like the party. I guess it's not a party is the opening of the opening of the night before a day of the car that is correct and it typically starts at three four o'clock in the morning and that's how the tradition was brought here but again because there's so many people participating in Juve and they're and they're repackaging it as something else something that it's not right and not really understanding the roots in the origins of this cultural celebration. Then that's when things start to like to the sexual violence of that point right exactly and then of course it's nighttime so it's very easy to you know for people who are going to do bad things whether to or not come out because there are large people out on the situation right and and so you know. I think that's one of the things about curbing culture that is you know. Sort of like skewing in the wrong direction. It's it's you know the way we've been describing it. It's it's feels like sex tourism almost Like people go to Thailand and different. Tally like people actually really by prostitutes over daylight whereas in right whereas not there's a there isn't like a transaction per se contacts. You know because you feel like you're going to have a transact right right elise like you know the the intention is necessarily like okay like I appreciate what is simple symbolizes is more so like you see like pretty woman and loud outfits that are you scantily clad for lack of a better term and then I can do whatever I want right You know because of course they're dancing in a particular way which may be essential or sex scene look sexual so if feels like a ripe opportunity for some that you can actually engage in this elicit behavior so I mean that was one of the things You know I think that's one of the things that I've been thinking about for for a couple of years now And just observing I am I have to SAMA masquerader. I go to the Carribean a band. I I play mass and I I played. I've played played mass and Guadalupe lightly. Explain what that means for people because you know like when my home is used to some air like I was. I didn't understand what that meant. Cathala terms like right so mass is short for masquerade and during Carnival In most countries in in fact I in every country that I can think of their different groups even Brazil right there. Different groups which Organize around a particular theme right. So let's say we're playing canal street or Chinatown Right. All the costumes in that particular band will have a Chinatown FEM- right and and and actually perform or to participate in. That band is called playing mass right and so in my experience throughout the Caribbean Going to carnival because again. I'm a masquerader whether you know I'm in the French Caribbean or the English. Speaking Caribbean I have not played mass in the Dutch or the Spanish speaking Caribbean or even in North America Because I've played here in Brooklyn as well as in Miami You know I always play mass because I'm a person who cannot just spectate. I want to participate and I've been playing since I was a teenager but now I have been spectating for couple of years and partially because I don't like what I see it and you know and I think it's a little problematic Also getting a little older. I'm not I'm not young but I'm not old so I'm also like to have the energy for that so I want to hear that physical preparation that goes involved. As do I saw the body ribons? Well so I think that kind of dove into growing up in flatbush and And travelling to Caribbean during the summers and The washer ethnic heritages sure. I usually don't talk about it. I always say I'm the Caribbean or hair politician. But both my parents are from Trinidad. So and the unique thing about my parents that's really important to know is both. My parents loved the eldest. My father is one of thirteen. My mother is one of seven. They're both number one and they both were the first to come to America and largely responsible for bringing most of their relatives. They bought their own. They bought everyone. They filed for everyone So parents will mothers because only my grandmother. My grandfather came and aunts uncles and dozens and dozens and dozens of cousins. I come very very large family so my God. Think lease into The because when people like I said earlier when he would think like. You're from Caribbean from a Caribbean nation. Like people don't Associate Jamaica's such a big brand people just automatically. Lake Brand Jamaica is like a real thing right so people just assume like you're Jamaican if you're from the islands you're probably going to eat. Beef patties not even jerk chicken. I don't even think that many people know about jerk chicken Liz. You're from New York

Trump declares victory following acquittal in impeachment trial
"We begin tonight with the conclusion of president trump's impeachment trial in the Senate on Wednesday the Senate voted to acquit president trump of obstruction of Congress and abuse of power met rami was the lone GOP lawmaker to join Democrats in finding him guilty of abuse of power the next day president trump appeared at the White House to celebrate his acquittal and denounced Democrats and the investigations that have dogged his presidency president trump also deliver his third state of the union address on Tuesday night he claimed credit for the stronger economy and vowed to quote never let socialism destroyed American health care the issue has taken center stage in the twenty twenty presidential race here to discuss this politico senior writer Carl Ameren Nucci and NPR senior editor and correspondent Ron Elving he joins us by Skype from the nation's capital welcome to you both Ron let's start with you we are hearing today that lieutenant colonel Alexander vin men who and his twin brother are being fired and removed from the White House he was one of the witnesses called during the impeachment investigation he provided very damaging testimony against the president what is this firing tell us about how trump gonna act moving forward and could there be any repercussions for the president or his administration you know there were two theories on the part of the senators who were voting on impeachment one was that the president was going to have learned his lesson and that he was going to moderate his behavior that does that does not seem to have been borne out by his behavior thus far at the prayer breakfast on Thursday or at his victory lap speech in the east room or now today as he has begun and we don't think he's finished cleaning out some of the people that he thinks betrayed him and the impeachment proceedings including a lieutenant colonel Benjamin and his brother who was actually on staff over in the Senate for some other people but seems to have lost his job in the same hour I mean it's not just the president that could potentially suffer repercussions we have senators like Susan Collins from Maine who it said she hoped the president would learn lessons she is one of a handful of senators that Democrats hope to defeat in November what do you think this means for them look I think it's gonna fire of the Democrats they are already donating in record amounts to the on the opposition in all of those cases when you talk about college attack on more than like Sally this is this is but it's going to keep the Republicans fired up as well this whole week is an example of of the kind of I mean a rancor and hostility we seen between the parties it is not going away anytime soon it is going to extend probably on the next election I think we've we've gone the other residents a suite yeah it definitely feels like we are already in the selection run I wanna bring you back in here the impeachment vote was on Wednesday the only person who you could say maybe didn't act in a partisan manner was Utah senator Mitt Romney he was the sole Republican vote on that first article of impeachment on abuse of power do you think that in anyway rob's trump of this talking point that this is a purely partisan witch hunt it doesn't seem to have deterred him from using exactly that language what it does add a note an asterisk if you will Mitt Romney was the first person to vote to remove from office a president of his own party we've had party lines stepped over in the past in previous impeachments but always to defend someone not to remove them so he does become a unique voice in all the history of impeachment that's not something we're going to hear from the White House White House is in some sense is trying to ignore him but is also made some rather direct shots at him hiding behind his religion or using religion as a crutch because he mentioned his Mormon faith when he gave the speech on the floor and was quite an emotional speech about why he felt he had to follow the facts that had been presented to the Senate and vote for the president's removal from office Carlos you think there could be any political repercussions for Ronnie I mean obviously he has a target on his back when it comes to the White House look his own newspapers in Utah have stood up for him but there's no question about it there's going to be political repercussions for him and for his state and that's I think going to be of concern to hand the president has already mentioned is such an antibody I think that he's getting support from Democrats it's interesting to watch but it was also interesting to watch the silence the came out of the Senate people that have known him for years people have respected him for years have not come forward to to to the firm for him in any way so I think we're going to see how this plays out he but he's willing to take the heat he made
Mitt Romney catches backlash for impeachment vote
"There were two articles of impeachment against the president abuse of power and obstruction of Congress related to a July phone call with the president of Ukraine and which president trump press the Ukrainian leader to investigate former vice president Joe Biden Democrats allege that trump withheld approved military aid to Ukraine as leverage for his own political gain then with help witnesses and evidence and later investigations president trump denied any wrongdoing well some of his Republican supporters agreed with Democrats that with the president did was wrong but said it didn't merit removal from office and yesterday he was acquitted on both counts of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress only one Republican this internet rami of Utah voting to convict the president for abuse of power here with us as we wait for the president's reaction and pure white has reporter I used to Roscoe Hey you show hello and NPR congressional correspondent Kelsey snow hi Kelsea hi there and I usually start with you Bill Clinton as we know apologized after he was acquitted he apologized to the country for and he said putting everyone through the process that is not expected today no not not at all in in the president did speak this morning at the national prayer breakfast and he talked about this and it may be given a preview of what he might say he talked about what the country have been put through a terrible ordeal by some quote very dishonest and corrupt people and he also said something to the effect of when they impeach you for nothing then he was saying are you supposed to like them basically but he's saying that he's impeached he was impeached for nothing so he's not acknowledging any wrongdoing on his part at all or or is that what the idea that he did anything and inappropriate he is not saying that Kelsey as I Asia said the president had a somewhat somber but jovial tone as well as that at this prayer breakfast as he said he was put through a terrible ordeal I'm in in many ways some folks are saying he kind of was refraining what happens that Republicans who voted to acquit they were not necessarily all of them doing that and saying that he was necessarily vindicated do you think we will see more of this tone in today's remarks well I mean we definitely expect that the president will continue this if he was feeling that way at a prayer breakfast which is typically a bi partisan non political events this event that he has more or less that called for the sick sole purpose of being political and partisan we expected to gold quite a bit further well you know his supporters might say he has every right he's very angry he feels he was unjustly put through this and we got another sense of the tone last night when the president retweeted a video denigrating Mitt Romney as we said that Romney was the only Republican to also vote for convicting the president on this video you know it's very insulting it calls him in a secret asset for Democrats and then president trump's son Donald Trump junior tweeted out a picture of that Romney in loose jeans it's called mom jeans and it has the P. word on it this vulgar slow for women that his father also used in the access Hollywood tape so I you know I Usha I'm just warning do you think we'll hear any of that kind of scorched language against Mitt Romney today I wouldn't think that scorched we as the president at some of his rallies he they do get he may get a bit raunchy but not I didn't I didn't mean there aren't you hardly you don't need royally because way in yeah I they yeah I think rami absolutely I I you can never say a hundred percent but I would be very surprised if he didn't at least make some type of a remark related to rhyme even if he doesn't name him when you look at the president's Twitter feed which is the way that we can look at and kind of get a sense of what he may be feeling when you look at what he tweeted after his acquittal you didn't get a lot of her rate I'm the best I'm the greatest but you did get like you pointed out that tweet about Romney and then you got another tweet this morning about if Romney had done more against former president Obama when he was running against him maybe he would have been president if you went after a bomb of the way he went after me so it does seem like this is very much at the the front of the president's mind right now the fact that Romney voted against them now Kelsey I you cover Congress I'm I mean do you think that Romney will get any credit for his vote from any Republicans the Republicans I talked to extensively yesterday more or less said that they were aware that out of senator on these feelings that they they weren't they knew that he would likely go a different way and none of them that I spoke to were really interested in holding it against him particularly it was very interesting talking to some of the folks in leadership who said that this was a vote about each individual conscience in each individual's beliefs and that there would be no holding it against him I sent a Tory leader Mitch McConnell did a press conference and he was asked repeatedly if Romney would be in the dog house or if there were any repercussions and he said that in the Senate the most important vote is your next vote and that he works well with Romney and he expects that he will continue to be a valuable valuable member of the Republican
Romney's vote surprised Trump impeachment team
"From NPR news this is All Things Considered I'm Audie Cornish and I'm very that was Kelly the impeachment trial of president Donald J. trump is over it is therefore ordered and a judge that the said Donald John trump be and he is hereby acquitted of the charges in said articles the Senate has voted to acquit Donald Trump the votes on two articles of impeachment came after two years of impassioned speeches from senators from both parties justifying their decisions acquit or convict and while most fell in line with their own party's position one broke away creating bipartisan opposition to the president NPR congressional correspondent Kelsey snow has been following it all from Capitol Hill she joins me now he kills hi there so it has been abundantly clear since before this trial began that Democrats were not going to have the sixty seven votes they needed to convict president trump what struck you as you watch this final historic day play out today was very somber very quiet the senators and all of their staff or just simply exhausted it was really interesting to me that the gallery of the public areas where people can come and sit and watch were as full as I have ever seen in my ten years up here in this was nearly a party line vote as he said and we knew what the outcome was but people are really interested and you know the person that we watch so closely through all of this was Mitt Romney of Utah and he went to the Senate floor earlier today and broke with his party on the first article of impeachment abuse of power and that really kind of set the energy back in play around here where there are protesters everywhere and it kind of give a break to the shuffling through of speeches that kind of brought us to the end of this trial thank you senator honest decision on that to vote on that one count against the president we were all watching for it it still was quite dramatic to to to watch him actually vote for it on the Senate floor just walk us through how he explained his vote well it was very dramatic because he is the first in order to vote to convict the president of their own party and he delivered this very emotional speech where he repeatedly tie this decision back to his religion I am profoundly religious my faith is at the heart of who I am and then he took a very long pause and composed himself and his voice broke several times when he was explaining that he took an oath before god and knew that making this judgment would be one of the most difficult he had ever faced but he said he was convinced that the president was guilty of what he was accused of and he did meet the threshold of high crimes and misdemeanors he says he knows will be pilloried for it and he didn't see any other choice this is what he said I'm sure to hear abuse from the president and his supporters does anyone seriously believe that I would consent of these consequences other than from an inescapable conviction that my oath before god demanded of me Kelsey is he hearing abuse what's been the reaction to mit Romney's decision well Donald Trump junior says he should be kicked out of the party but the Republican senators I talked to basically don't agree with that as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was asked about this repeatedly after the vote today and he said he was surprised and disappointed buddy said rami still works with the party and there are no dog houses in the Senate but I will note that Romney was the first senator out of the chamber after he shook hands with his desk mate hi what about on the other side of the aisle there had been some suspense that maybe Democrats would cross party lines in particular three Democrats who represent states that president trump one in in twenty sixteen that that didn't happen it didn't happen they were all United and a senator Joe Manchin in particular of West Virginia was really lauded and and celebrated when they came to the Senate floor before the vote he had basically a receiving line of people coming to give him a hug it's important because president trump and no longer can claim that there was bipartisan opposition to his impeachment like that he could claim in the house yeah so impeachment the trial is over but is the Ukraine drama over on Capitol Hill it doesn't seem like that a Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says it's all in the rear view mirror but he doesn't control of the house and over in the house house Judiciary Committee chairman Jerry Nadler said a subpoena could be coming for former national security adviser John Bolton and they're still that book that Bolton has written and should be coming out shortly so there is still drama around impeachment even if the final votes are cast NPR congressional correspondent Kelsey smell speaking to us from Capitol Hill thank you Kelsey thank
Republicans Block Impeachment Witnesses, Clearing Path for Trump Acquittal
"Glad to be hanging out with you on this monumental day why is it why is it such a special day well that's because the Republicans finally in unity did something that we've been wanting them to do and here's the deal the Senate voted down the witness issue that the Democrats have been screaming for what does that mean there's no witnesses here comes the acquittal and that's what's going to happen because it looks like closing arguments are gonna happen on Monday the final vote is on Wednesday and it looks like the president in less there are some unforeseen circumstances something changes which I doubt it will the president will be acquitted and now he moves on to the business end well what is in the best interest of the country what she's been doing all along through this three and a half year hoax that's been perpetrated against the Democrats are flipping out Hollywood's melting everybody's melting the snow flakes it's almost a little reminder it it's almost a throw back let's just call this our flash back Friday that's what we'll call it and I will call in our flash back Friday because it's a flashback of when Donald Trump won the election the snow flakes melted the screams in the streets the Hollywood elite the democratic lead flipping out trying to convince us of that in fact the country is doomed it's over it's done and well in three and a half years it's not over the country isn't done in fact it's just the opposite we have got economic growth like we've never seen in the history of the country our national security is better our trade deals are better America is the muscle it once was all around the globe and we've got someone in the White House that will not and I repeat not let America get taken advantage of ever get and the Democrats this is what they knew this is what they do now and well there crying and upset have you seen Jerry Nadler space have you seen as well Nancy blows his whistle click on all the time but if you seen Jerry Nadler did you see Adam Schiff I never saw those bug eyes go back into their sockets like I saw well today Adam Schiff is no longer but I chef Adam Schiff has normalize no longer does the other Marty Feldman nice is normalized and I think it's because he was crying because you lose now you may say Steve your being a little presumptuous you know the vote hasn't happened no but I can tell you this after and I'll give credit to where credit is due because you know I've been very hard on Mitch McConnell I'll give credit to where credit is due Mitch McConnell pulled it off Mitch McConnell regardless of he likes trump or not pulled it off and did it what is the most important thing and that's we got to not lose sight of here here's the most important thing okay your vote was retained the nonsense of keeping this impeachment trial going was in fact just that nonsense and they got the boat fifty one forty nine now of course Mitt Romney of the turn coat and Susan Collins the turncoat didn't jump on the Republican ticket but that's okay we'll know their liberal we only other Democrats they might as well just make the change now and just move on I mean that's who they are and I wonder if that could be happening I wonder if if Susan Collins in Mitt Romney would have the guts the guts to switch parties now become Democrats because we already know the Democrats I mean not met rami of course this is pay back because he could never win a general election Susan Collins is just basically a Democrat she's always been one and and so you know at the end of the day it would have been nice to have this unity but we didn't think we were expecting but here's the surprise the surprise was senator Lamar Alexander retiring this year Republican out of Tennessee he was the guy he was the guy to make sure that in fact the Republicans would be able to vote against any further witnesses some people are angry some people are upset and saying well you know no witnesses means that trump really isn't exonerated just means of the Republican Party are now battling to their king and if you want to believe that then keep smoking crack but remind let me remind you crack kills that's not what happened here fully tell you will Lamar Alexander said senator Lamar Alexander went on record and said I and I quote I worked with other senators to make sure that we have the right to ask for more documents and witnesses but here excuse me but there is no need for more evidence to prove something that has already been proven and that does not meet the United States constitution's high bar for an impeachable offense and at the end of the day friends that's the fact Jack there was no high crimes and misdemeanors whoa is not an impeachable offense and here's the deal there was no quid pro quo but even if their wives that's not an impeachable offense not and certainly moral Alexander had the where with all to know that I did what was right the summer say well he's retiring anyway who cares well I think the elect the electric cares because there's going to be an election soon and they'll be an election in two more years from the mid terms so you know we Republicans just like Democrats want to keep their seats no they did what was right here the Democrats had no case two articles of impeachment both ridiculous you know obstruction and abuse of power both ridiculous they had no argument they wanted to prolong this as much as they can because it was a political ploy on their part to try to actually defame truck more so that they can somehow make more progress on their candidates to try to steal the White House I mean that's that's that's at the end of the day what happened here but the Republicans came through now look I get it using arguments are on Monday I get it the final vote isn't until Wednesday but friends I am completely confident completely confident and my sources which are good by the way are completely confident that this will go well it the show tonight I mean we just do we're gonna talk about this obviously because I need to be discussed debated when open up phone lines here in a minute and then of course in the bottom or excuse me the second hour at the bottom of the second hour many of Jim Marchand on he's running for Congress here in Nevada district for and Jim more shots good guy and some good things have happened for Jim are shot conservative guy across the board trump supporter and look eve asked me over and over and over again Las Vegas what we do to turn this state read well I'm gonna help you do just that so good show busy show tonight I'm an open up the phone line so that you can get in on the conversation seven zero two two five seven five three nine six is a way to the studios here seven zero two two five seven

UN agencies raise alarm over weakened fight against hunger and malnutrition in Asia and the Pacific
"This is the news and brief from the United Nations. For U N agency said on Wednesday that three million undernourished people a month needs to be lifted out of hunger until the end of twenty thirty. If the sustainable development goals are to be reached the Food and Agriculture Organization Human Children's Fund World World Food Programme and World Health Organization are calling for urgent action to put nutrition at the heart of social protection programs throughout the region and a new joint report. Highlighted that an estimated seventy seven million children under five with stunted last year and thirty two point five million and suffered from wasting the latest figures make for grim reading on top of rising numbers of children and adults who are overweight or obese across the region while social protection can potentially help to eradicate hunger and malnutrition the report notes the need for more research into how they are impacting the poor especially women and children people with disabilities and indigenous people the UN agencies hope these findings will inform dialogues member countries to improve food security and nutrition across Asia and the Pacific moving to Palestine Prime Minister Mohamed Sta and UN Humanitarian Coordinator.

"rami" Discussed on The Men's Room
"Yeah well I mean they didn't show up necessarily was This was a little bit before sterling had speech and then a little bit after that Look first of all. I think that it's very easy in the country you know to just for many people to discourses that all look Hezbollah's like the scary thing king you know or there's this division everything would be fine if it weren't for them. I don't think this is true. I think Hezbollah's power is partly enabled by the weakness of the is government. Okay so first of all we have to know you know that We shouldn't succumb to false dichotomies. We can't say a Hezbollah is good or bad because we can talk about specific actions. Hezbollah you know at one point. defended the borders of Lebanon the territories of Lebanon. Like look if you were living in a place that was being invaded and the Lebanese army didn't come to defend you and Hezbollah came to defend you. Then you're going to feel your affinity with Hezbollah and that that makes perfect sense. And maybe they were doing the right thing then And you don't want to say you know that everybody's actions are all the time bad or all the time good you wanna say their specific actions. That are good and specific actions. That are bad But now you know I mean think about the way this Lebanon had this this country in this Lebanon hero or dilemma. Non of a few days ago has operated Anybody who belongs to any religious denomination and I just want to point out that there's A. There's a huge plurality of religions in this country and this is not the country didn't form itself. The country was formed by historical forces forces you know largely external forces of and then these people who belong to a different religious denominations and religious denominations are not insignificant because says they Give p pulled individual a sense of identity and a sense of belonging so they have these identities and now they find themselves tons of them. You know From very different identities and now they're supposed to be collected under this one banner. You know the Lebanese flag or whatever it is okay well now you have to kind of engage something so look if I take five kids and they all come from different backgrounds and I put them in the same room. I can't just expect them all to play together. I have to set up a game which they can play together and common spaces you know. Teach them how to share with each other. What has this country you know? What has this government done to make a The Sunnis feel like this is their Lebron and the Shia. Feel like this is their Lebron and the Christians and Druze. It's made nobody feel like this. Is Their Lebanon. So then you know when you find yourself cohabiting you know a with others and you feel like there's no common spaces for you guys to interact or a to be friends with each other and your we don't celebrate her identity. We don't have the you know the Shiite get to celebrate who were the facets of their identity and there's the day and whatever all right then People feel like they have to kind of a hide amongst their own groups and sure enough. This is what happens. Every group of lives in its little towns and celebrates its cultural real faucets but it doesn't interact with others and now if you at the same time are a very weak state where nobody feels like. They're defended and you get a group it's like Hezbollah who says Oh look sharp people. You know we're going to be your protectors we're GonNa let you express your identity and so on if your share person. You definitely have a very strong wrong motivation to engage with below and you know to feel friendly towards them so I think that the violence that happened today. This is part of a culture that has emerged emerged out of a feeling of defensiveness And I WANNA point out that. Although there was violence there was also an unprecedented unity. You know we saw about an Salinas speech spoken in downtown and nobody held Hezbollah flag. They all held a Lebanese flag. And when the when the Hezbollah people you know walked into into downtown Dayton walk in with a flag because they would have been lynched if they had walked in with a flag so they did walk in and they did instigate violence. But also you don't want to say that the average guy on the street you know who is instigating violence. You know there'd just being self-protective why they do that. Why did they walk in and incite violence? Well I guess because they feel like I mean it's not that they feel it's not necessarily explicitly you know I don't think we want to collapse the government and so so on and so this makes them feel like Oh you know maybe. These protesters are now antagonistic. There's also a lot of rumors that go around rumors like Oh. This is being supported by Western forces. That's what what what by by any external forces really that. That's a joke. Anybody who's been on the ground we'll have to see that that's a joke because the people are so diverse who are on the ground. There's there's no way that they're all being funded by any single group or multiple groups. Eighth really looks like they just. They're coming down on their own. You know this was. It was clear clear that it was. They were coming down on their own and it's clear that nobody has gotten any additional funding somehow magically from anybody who anyway cares about what's happening in Lebanon. I don't think anybody cares. Where a tiny little hole if anybody really wanted to a fund anything they would just fund the war against us just smashes to bits and just take over? That's what they would do so yeah I mean in a way. I don't even want to kind of engage in the discourse of Oh you know there was this Violins winds and odors now. Fear or whatever no. I think that there are misunderstandings that are happening out understandable misunderstandings. I think that it's our duty right now. As the Lebanese people as a whole to on the unity yes and to also you know create this counter discourse where we create these mechanisms of we. We have a common space to interact. There's no problem with you shower or Sydney or whatever you are you know You don't have any problems with coexisting existing. It's almost a Ghandi esque approach. I might say because it's like Facing all the conflicts with with Sir huge amount of love and peace. Yesterday's what Gandhi did and in some ways. That's exactly what's happening here. Even in the face of this this attempt to disrupt in a violent way it was faced with with nonviolence and it was actually. It's actually often more effective In the big picture but let's continue with some of the other issues At play here because obviously this is a huge one Hezbollah and the kind of alliances without within the government which we're not GONNA get too much into but so what are some of the other failures of the state which have led to this moment. Maybe I should also say a little bit about the people you know because in a way one of the things that happened and is that we There was also an element of fear that had held the people Post the civil war Look I mean this is very normal in a way. We kind of display many for older generation. Many of the people who lived here during the civil war display symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder. You know they are the undermines any small conflict reminds them of the time that there was a big conflict. If at some point you confronted a man and you got into a fight with them and then you were hurt really badly then the next time you see a man and he acts slightly aggressive you can think. Oh no I'm going to get hurt really badly. You know this is just normal human a normal human reaction so people are afraid of any instigation of antagonism. Because they're afraid of the reemergence of civil war So we really do display these kind of psychological you know a pre post traumatic stress disorder. But I think that what has helped us overcome overcome with your help us overcome this. I don't want to say it's overcome. You know. I want to say that. What help us today? You know overcome it is that the situation has become so bad that we're It's it's very hard to be afraid of the thing that happened in the past when you're present is so dire. Yeah so I just wanted to kind of add that I mean if you want to just talk about what's happening I think today you know. There's there's been there's been fuel shortages. There was no bread being sold on one of the days during the protests or pre desires. Just try just before the progress in the last few weeks There was you know the fires that were met with no response at all from government because it turns out they're not maintaining the helicopters but these helicopters Alec options have probably gotten some funding to be maintained whereas this funding gone. You just left the people to burn And then you throw around conspiracies about you know the Syrians or whoever whoever you know burning US guys there's global warming happening and you're a country that has refused to even engage minimally a recycling project that country by by this I mean a government Their their failures have become so so enormously. Numerous said it's embarrassing in the last two elections. We've had explicit bribery. You know multiple recorded hundreds of recorded instances Bhai an NGO. That's independent from. The government is Lebanese Association for Democratic Elections Elections And publicized by the local media that there was bribery that there was cheating. There was theft of a votes. How are we supposed to trust this government? There's is nothing for us an away. They were given a chance. They were really handed a chance and the parliamentary elections and they still failed all. The people. Obviously are uniting uniting around these issues the economy you know is failing there's obviously no approach that's positive towards Handling issues related to the environment does the non-project. That's what they are not. Yeah they have a long list of non projects. Yeah so what are some of the other issues that Oh you think are common amongst all the groups I mean you mentioned education The economy the environment. We don't have you know. They don't dispose of garbage which properly. There's no such thing as recycling. What are some of the other things I mean you know? I think that the most common facet that you see today. Is that everybody. She has largely woken up to the fact that the sectarian political system is no good. It's not helping them. It's not helping anyone. It's not helping. Anybody maintained their identity. Everybody has lost their identity rather than anybody gain their identity. And so how well I mean. We've been applying it for since the end of the civil war and our situation has only progressively gotten worse. which laws specifically are you referring to that are non application of our Constitution and the non application of the pipe agreement? Both out of these things require that The sex it's not the religious sector will remain. And it's going to remain part of Lebanese identity. There's many religions and that we want to have these religions after all anywhere else you would think of this as a plur pluralism you know a positive pluralism you know we. We welcome coexistence of multiple identities But it's one thing for that to exist and another thing for this to be part of the government. It can't it's absurd that I've lived all my life in Beirut route and during the municipal elections I couldn't vote in Beirut because I vote in Chouf you know where my religious denomination as it's absurd that our government forces you as a baby to have a religion placed on your ID card. That's not acceptable. You don't you commit to a religion when you become eighteen or whenever you don't commit to a religion when you're born you know it doesn't pass by blood and certain doesn't pass by sperm either you know which is another thing that they have a real problem with you know just the way they they Systematically abused women basically this this country systematically abuses women in lots of different ways. Can you give examples. Okay well I mean so For one thing given our national anthem sexist in it it says Blah Blah Blah between men become liberal. Okay Doumen grow on trees no they grow out women they come out of women you know a we somehow have this delusional idea that this is a. There's just an mental up And it's people are often fond of pointing out. You know that sometimes we say man when we mean human and that includes women you know But but sometimes we also do the reverse we say humanity is violent and actually we should more appropriately. Say men are violent because if you look at the history of humanity not it's men who have carried out the majority affords and it's not a surprise that they would carry out the majority of fours because I think about it look a war for a needs to run on something and what it runs on soldiers and now the question is how expensive is a soldier. If you're a man it's very easy for you to think that a soldier is not very expensive because men just show up around you but if you're a woman you have much more clear sense of how expensive a man is why because every man and every woman on Earth has had to come out of a woman a mother has had to carry this child and you know For for nine months. And then you have it as a baby and then take care of and that's how there was a man you know hanging around so really. War Is Men's project and you know when we say humanity is worth some we should more appropriately. Say Men are worse this war some culture. That is a propagated here. In Lebanon. is is being made Aspects and who in here in Lebanon across the whole world is being carried by women. Women are paying the price for men's wars visit interesting Kind of analysis. This of how you're saying basically that men don't value life the same way than women do because it's swimming that have to go through the process of life men don't just grow on trees like our national anthems the thing is an interesting Philosophical Approach. But what are some of the actual laws That you're referring to because I know there are some that are contentious. Yeah like a woman is not allowed to pass her nationality to her own child That's that's absurd. Why were a feel for example? If a Lebanese woman marries a British man and has a child is not Lebanese. or She's not. Yeah which which humane. which is which is absurd literally you know? They must think that Mendez of course with the legal. There's also issues with the legal courts. I'm with parenting laws. I'm not sure if you can explain a little bit about that indirectly. The country has preserved the sectarian system By making sure that civil marriage doesn't happen Because in this way you can make it so that you have to be married under a particular sort of for religious law And very often this religious laws are not you.

"If I have a date. Well, I mean. Care bohemian rhapsody because you know, we grew up during that period that that all that stuff was happening. When you and I were young. So it's it's relevant to people in our age. You're you're. Maybe learning some some something about the band. I don't know if you're learning anything new necessarily, but interesting kind of insight not everything was accurate in the movie. I'll let you get through that before we spoil anything, but the time line wasn't wholly accurate. But nonetheless, the spirit of the movie came off as you know, celebrating a guy named great rockstar the basics of the movie. They become a band. They make some hits they become famous lead singer dies pretty much. Okay. Yeah. Someone actually made that comment on the movie Rami Malik, by the way, those I think a really great job as Freddie Mercury. I mean, really great job as Freddie Mercury. They recreated the Live Aid concert almost step for step and to choreograph something like that. I know they can they can edit a lot of stuff, you know. Because that's what they do wasn't done. Live still was impressive. And and I that was I think that was probably for me the most impressive thing because they recreated it. And it was which was only what a fifteen minutes set. Fifteen twenty minutes, whatever it was. And and I think that was a really great thing. But it went back for me to being a fan of the ban being fan of that era. In fact, before I watched it, I watched the this was from a few years ago the documentary on quaint, and which is also great. But it's it's one of those historic things you go back and go. Okay. Great. I liked the documentary. I've seen the fifteen minute Live Aid. And where they do most the anthems, and I'm just not a man of the anthems. I love the power of the crowd. And I and they do great versions of it. But I'm just not a fan of that part of the ban while. Iraq. You. What's interesting is is when you get behind the in in the documentary, they got into this in the movie, they got into it a little bit too. But it was really about in the documentary. They were talking about how they the band one one of the audience to be a part of the performance and early on. They learned in front of a huge audience in Chile. I think it was that there is no greater end or end result. I guess then your audience, and it could be tens of thousands of people that are participating in the song. So we're the champion, and I'm with you because well anybody that's been to a sporting event, we will rock you, by the way, they said look in one or in two different songs, but that were often played together, we will rock you. We're the champions. They had two different major sporting venue songs that still live on today, which I thought was. Is an interesting point they made. But it was that effort to get the audience involved in those song. I know that I guess I understand that for for music. I actually care about the performance for the band. I really don't care about the audience. And that's why I've loved early Queen. Yeah. I love to love the early stuff that they did. And when they got into the anthem stuff. I remember I just didn't care anymore. I don't care. They I actually to me. I went they sold out. That's what I thought. That's what you thought back then. All right. They're doing an anthem was yellow and they did. Oh, fat bottomed girls. Well, yeah. Yeah. Right. I was gone at that. It's like come on. Don't insult my intelligence. Great song love that song. I do. I just went. They sold out the the tar riff the drums. I thought were just losses. Just and and it's and and from the artist's perspective of trying to get that audience. And and they talked about that. Mercury walking out on the stage and being able to to take an audience with him on that was there. No for that was a huge accomplishment. Will agree. It's it's extremely powerful by the way you and I both talk about what we really don't argue music because who can argue about taste. Yeah. Who can argue about personal taste of what satisfies your ear. What sound way satisfy your eardrums into your brain? Yeah. Yeah. The argument to have here would be the difference for me. I don't like it when an aging performer can't hit the notes, so he holds the microphone out and wants you to do lifting hate that. Yes. That's not audience participation. That's hey, wait a minute. Dude. I paid one hundred bucks for this ticket. And you're wanting me to sing for you. But with Queen it was about it was about that huge joint effort of everybody, and the parallel the modern day parallel for me would be food fighters because Dave Grohl is like one of his own fans. He's a fan of his fans and it shows when they're live when he's on stage. It's not the same anthem music. But his energy is equal to any of his greatest and most loyal fans when he's onstage, and and to me that's pretty incredible to watch eight six six ninety redeye what your batteries talk. It's important that you listen to avoid getting stuck out in the cold. This winter be aware of these two warning signs that may indicate your truck batteries are trying to tell you something.

"Like, how did it change your feeling of your mouth and your ability to talk and sing like not only did you have to seeing, you know, for the performance, even though they weren't necessarily gonna use your voice, you still had to sing. And so you're doing something you're not used to doing singing, and you're doing it with teeth that aren't even yours. Yes. The teeth were difficult to to get used to in the beginning initially. I put them in my mouth a year prior to shooting and immediately felt insecure. I felt like I was on my back foot in a way didn't feel like myself, which did help me quite a bit. But. It was a feeling of insecurity that had to cover them up as well. And I'd been watching so much footage of him. You see him covering his teeth so often that I thought how am I ever gonna do that? Well, as soon as those teeth went in it was second nature found myself covering them up so often, my my lips would dry up. So I found myself licking my lips as he did. But another thing happened. I started to compensate physically by holding my posture better along gating, my body sitting up very straight. And that's something. You also see him do. And I don't know if that was something that affected him or he was born with the elegance that he has. But it did give me a way into understanding a little bit more about him. His name is originally Rupel Ceara, and he wasn't even called that as a kid very strong set of of. Buck teeth and most of the kids in school called him Bucky. So you see this young man who travels from Zanzibar and goes to a boarding school called Saint Peter's in India. He's travels there on ship. He feels very I think removed an isolated and when he comes back to Hans of our his country's in the midst of revolution. They have to immigrate to London, and he's a young man at that point feels like a fish out of water in the nineteen seventies trying to identify himself sexually as well. Let me so much stands in the way of this man becoming who he is. And what I discovered was. There is something burning inside of him this dream that he wants to see realized this music that is so vibrant and uring to exist outside of him and everything stands in his way.

"I had never worked that hard in in my life on one particular piece of filming every day. I spent hours with a movement teacher named paulie Bennett. And I always wanted to keep it very spontaneous. But at the same time honor this fantastic performance that he and Queen gave. And it's like you said there are things he does with that microphone. That is defy what the mere mortal can do he whips around with it with you know, violence at times with elegance. He uses as the era guitar sometimes right in front of one of the greatest guitar players of all time, Brian May so as Brian May is crushing on guitar here is Freddie Mercury air guitar in. And he's still a magnificent thing to watch. It's so compelling. And only he could get away with that. So I was wondering when you're onstage. First of all, did you film the Live Aid concert at Wembley? And were there seventy two thousand people in the audience was that like footage from the actual concert. That was like put in in a seamless way to make it look like you are performing to the audience that was actually there in nineteen eighty-five. Where's the CGI? Like, what was the setting who is actually there? Wimbley doesn't exist at that. When there's a new Wembley stadium. Just it doesn't exist. We recreated it on an airfield just outside London. And we did bring in fans actors to be to be Queen fans who actually work weaned fans, and I thought, oh, that's that's terrific will have a lot of support. But at one point I thought well, what if I don't live up to their expectations. This could be the worst thing. I maybe should've just got people. Who have never heard of Queen. And I could have given them a great show. So everything felt daunting. From that perspective. We did have some point thousands of background actors their supporting actors, but never, of course, seventy two thousand that would have taken up the entire budget to be able to do something like that. And logistically would been impossible. It takes guts, if you're Freddie Mercury and you're performing in front of an audience of seventy two thousand people in this use stadium. And you're starting your set by sitting at the piano, alone playing a few chords that everybody knows that they're already going crazy because of that. And then you start singing solo for while before the ban comes in did the confidence where off on you. I don't know how confident you are as Rami Malik. But did you become more confident embracing your Rami Malik south after having embraced, Freddie, mercury's confidence? There was a moment where I stepped on stage in. Sequin Leotard that leaves nothing to the imagination. And at one point. I said, listen if you're going to play man who Iraq this thing out like nobody's business and made everything his own and spontaneously combusted in the most magnificent way on stage, you better own this. And I'll tell you by the end of shooting we came to another concert sequence. And I asked Julian day the costume designer. I said, you know, that the sequin Leotard he said, yes, I said, do you think you can make that for me in ruby red? And he laughed. She looked at me said, well, we've come a long way have. Another thing. We should mention is your teeth. He had what four extra teeth and in his upper mouth, and he had, you know, very buck teeth as a result. And so you had fake teeth that you use made for you by a famous like Hollywood prophetic teeth designer what was it like for you to wear them?.
