"Some of this. And i'm really interested in the fiba it might. You might just blow possibly might have to spend a week in hiding and used to it. It's okay let's get luxton touch. Thank you for joining your loved the city. What do you think that one you don't. I'm really enjoyed this guy. We had dinner. We talked a lot about bitcoin. We also talked about theorem. Saw something i'm interested in woobie invested in But it was really good for him to come in and tell a story and i'm really glad he let me do it. I'm sure get a bit of hate from the theorem crowd. Think i'm just taking the project. I'm probably get some. Bitcoin is now think shit coin. But look no one's harmed from us. Having this conversation and i learned a lot more about why i care about the conservative nature of bitcoin. Governors and say look leans become a friend. Now we can be friends which is not a crime. Now i think lanes insight into the project and theon foundation was really interesting and i needed a lot from this so i do hope you appreciate it but big. Thanks for coming on the show. He's probably gonna get some shit off the back of this but yes. It was a valuable conversation and to be on this. We probably could have gone on for another couple of hours. I'm not even to lane about some other things in the future anyway. I'd be enjoyed this one. If you want to reach out to me trump me any feedback. You can hit me up on what. Bitcoin did dot com or jump into ten group outside of that. Same as you want to spoil the show just over the apple podcasts and leave me review. okay. I'm up to go and catch a flight own.

"But that's permission us in some way. I'm gonna that doesn't make sense. You can't yeah i mean. It can't be permission list or censorship assistant by definition. If it's not decentralized like the way that bitcoin gets these properties that we all know and love is by being so fucking decentralized but but from what i've been told about salon i would argue that it's really decentralized. It's i think they're gamble is that it's decentralized enough right and and i will give them one fact which is that most people most degen's trading and fte's and digital rocks. Don't care as much about decentralisation. As you and i and people know salvador in places like that i don't think they care tool. Well if they didn't care at all they shouldn't be on a blockchain in the first place they should be using firebase too. I just don't think it's an issue of either if you care about decentralization. Then you care about maximum decentralization. You're saying that it's all or nothing when when you when you when you don't care as much about decentralisation i think you'd already gear but it's a slippery slope. Yeah i think we'd agree about this. And and once you start going in that direction you start making compromises. Then now i look. I'm with you the reason that i think we were just having fun. Basically i think they're having a fun that making money the trade inbox the trading Tompkins cupboards and they'll coins and the having fun and am from a distance. I'm watching them have fun. And then i'm in this little world here. Where i'm arguing about the state and the fed and i'm watching these people over that have fun. It's like i'm in a business meeting in vegas hotel and i can see through the glass windows. Will the people that that down there in the roulette will and they drink and have fun on. But so it's so. I'm with you. Yeah hundred percent. I really liked this this characterization but it's even worse because they're winning and they're making money hand over fifty and folks like you and i are here like trying to do real work and move the needle humanity. It's very hard to focus but it was also like this in two thousand seventeen so i was. I was having these of deeb. I always say as we clean the daddy. Alls just like saying i'm my. I'm not rich. But like i am at my wealthiest moment in my life right now and i feel poor. I'm with you look at these people. Big money by japex. Two point three like the blaine jake. Emily shows you how much wealthier is standing around out there like no. We've got to move the welford unprincipled to do this. And also like cod. Do that goes with these people. Yell at me i i just i the reason to have the find anymore because i just two different things do like. Why fight these people. It's like fighting to close down the enemy. Yeah yeah just let them. They aren't the enemy. The enemy is the fed the all of the year or the people. Making the hundred under percents That's that's the enemy..

"Governors of the cool so the team foundation bootstrapped. The if you're in protocol governance yeah okay. So like hudson hudson jameson. The gentleman i mentioned before right he like me. I see what he was a contractor for. The foundation foundation paid for zuma account that was used. Hostess calls the posted in the foundation youtube. It's i actually think that that should have long time ago. Should've been moved off of foundation properties onto. I don't know what that's the question. Something essential by the community right right so your information has been very active in governance to give you a very concrete example when the dow hartford happen when the decision was made in two thousand sixteen to do that there were maybe ten people on the conversation eight or nine of whom had an association with the foundation. Fun so do you think a serum governance should be taken out of the foundation and re yes that i constantly say yes and there should be. This is kind of what i was trying to do. In two thousand nine hundred was to create a new thing called foundation maybe an association some kind of structure. Maybe i mean really. It's adele at the end of the day that had the transparency had the accountability to the community had those structures in place and that did not happen. So if you take the governance of fairmount. Lithium foundation theory foundation can focus on education giving grants. That's kind of like what it at the kosice portraying different projects but you remove the conflict of interest that exists between the foundation the people who run the foundation and the governance and the people who control the governments of fear that that seems to me like a huge conflict of interest. Where's the conflict of interest. Because they're they hold a lot of eight and we don't know the different influence levels at happen at different in different places who's sponsored by who is sounds to me like if theorin governance should be completely separated. Resold here's the thing right. The this is kind of like a circular dilemma. Because if you say take governance away from the finish and find him on board with. I don't let the foundation who's going to put it in okay. You need a new foundation or call the dow or something. Okay so number one. What is how do we ensure that the same failures of governance don't happen to the new foundation if we're gonna call foundation right and i have some ideas. Explained like increased accountability transparency et cetera. There are ways we can do that but the point. I'm trying to make here is that the foundation was created in the first place to do this yet. Fine but like bootstrapped you've evolved beyond that point. It sounds like it's not required anymore. I mean i would be saying look. Bickering governs is successful. It is a success so wine emulate that model. I think the best projects that i've seen have an very few actually follow through on this but many intend to. They all say they want to do. This rate is that they have something company or foundation or both that like bootstraps. It's a good stewards. This thing into existence and then decentralize itself in disappears which is again kind of what shape..

"Means deluding everyone's holdings significantly actually quite a bit I mean if if you're if the network is three years old in your adding eighteen months like what is that. That's plus fifty percents insurance. That's a huge increase inflation and so as a result to counteract that at least partially the per block subsidy was reduced so that's the context of how decisions were made. Okay it's kind of a having but it's not because i said like it's it's it's supposed to be like net neutral kind of and again i think a lot of nuance is lost. When you hear the ultrasound money mean anyway yes. So there's like ten people who make these decisions. I was running python scripts. I was one of these people. And you know I think tally probably chimed in a couple of folks but none of us are trained economists. None of us and at least in the decisions that i was a part of like not only did we not get input from economists like it was we should. I should dig up some of these like like twitter threads or media articles. It was kind of like you know. Put your finger in the air. Judge which way the wind is going. Okay we're gonna reduced from five That sounds like a reasonable number. We don't know what the right amount of patients is.

No we don't fucking though like Macroeconomics as a field is only a few decades. All like they have no idea so That's the answer to your question. It's primarily at.

"I had a lot of sleepless nights in early twenty nineteen and i think that it was me wrestling with my conscience conscience. And that's what led me after. Those eighteen months had passed in early. Two thousand nineteen to become more active more activists roland so one of the things i was trying to do is create a new foundation right. Okay not replaced the information. Destroy the foundation But just create another pole of influence in the ecosystem and there was a lot of support for this a completely separate founded finishing. Because i felt that the information was irreparably broken. You wrote something on your medium about this you about governance. I wrote a lot about governance. There was a tweet you may be referring to which was twenty. I think it was april of twenty. Nineteen where i tweeted. The theory of governance has failed. And this was a tweet. Tweet thread where i went on to explain and i had been very very very active. If you're in this sort of precipitated that is this. Your jerry maguire. Even i think so. I mean let me let me.

"Maximum decentralisation i think it makes compromises on decentralisation for through burton the ability to build some things and by the way you know how i'm technical but that's my kind of impression but like if it was a company where do you think would be different company. I think it would be a fitting take decentralized it sorry permission as fintech laya to build to build fintech technologies on and i think it would have less of a war with bitcoin. Because it won't be money would be about it. 'cause one of the things like i think is interesting. The world of fintech is this idea. That i don't have to go and create logan's everywhere. There's just. I can have hardware wallet. And i can move asses from one person to another like ms down the people building it to allow me to do that. And that kind of fintech layer. I think is kind of interesting in some ways. It's interesting how we keep coming back to fintech because yeah yes. That is one of the things that you can do with. The theorem certainly happening with defy. But i think what i'm suggesting is to me and i think to a lot of people who are very deep into it a lot more than that or at least goes back that thing i said about operating system for building. Better human institutions. I am certainly going to trigger some people with these kind of ideas. And i guess if it was a company than the dow's would be less interesting because if it was a company. Here's the thing it would have. Shareholders yet and it would have accountability to their shareholders. We have a fiduciary duty and again starts to get into the governor's i think this is one of the issues with the foundation. Is that in any normal scenario if foundation in fact again i don't know what the rules in switzerland are bent like here for example foundations required to raise a certain amount of its operating budget from donors every cycle every year..

"Then. I don't mind being critical of a theorem for the things i understand. And if someone says should they buy a theorem. I'll i'll usually say by bitcoin and this is for this reason But at the same time like going away people using it yes it might have issues on term might die fine technologies come and go but i think it's really important to to stop having useless flies chief nothing So if. I think this sounds a little bit cliche but i genuinely think like the things that unite us which is things we have in common are much greater than the things that divide us us being kind of like the corners in theory. Yeah your bitcoin. A- i am. I i I am. I think of myself as a corner. First and foremost i happy to share it more background but when i first got into space in two thousand sixteen twenty seventeen the first thing i bob bitcoin the first events i went to a bitcoin right here in new york been meet up. Shot up to those guys freaking fantastic And if i were ever if it came down to a situation where. I was forced to choose allegiance. i would use bitcoin. I'm going to be very clear about that. But i also think it's possible both of these kinds of ideas in my mind at the same time that both projects were cool. They both kind of Different problems basically and so. I'm bitcoin any whole bitcoin. And i've just decided like that's my work. This is never going to be a scenario where i'm going to launch one theorem. Did if i if i did. I would double double my revenue overnight and like this messy financial incentives to. I'm just not going to do. I don't have the time to dedicate to it. And i'm not usually interested in but i but you're curious you're open minded well. No it's not even reminded. I like you and i wanna talk to you. And what can i learn about theory that helps me understand. Bitcoin better is fall. But i'm not gonna just like sh- just spend the rest of my life going shit coins you what. Sometimes i fear. I've pushed people away from listened to my podcast when actually they could have come in and got something just for being that. So i'm very supportive of what you've been saying recently mean donovan. Been talking about law. I think he's trying to make an interesting point. That people missing. It's not about people being mean on. Twitter is actually about a certain subgroup of hebrew Moronic assholes who get thrown out of abusing people and being complete fucking shits. I'm very low. Tolerance attorney more And and that doesn't when he makes when he frames that i don't think he's saying every bit as of course not he's just saying that this group of fucking idiots fucking gets every subcommittee and social media gives them a microphone and amplifies their voice yet rewards them. We have this theory theorem..

That actually built a state. They're the people have brains. Humans have brains. Those brains involved with certain mechanisms certain ways of interpreting the world that were wildly successful.

One of the things that they evolved to do is reach judgments very quickly and reaching judge may quickly drives them to very bad places when they have to think about. Subtle nuance complicated realities. People are better at simple things.

In other words done isaac was an adviser to for the jews word and seeing the jews and as the unit look at all these jews and entertainment. Jews run the meeting. Oh they're arresting all these celebrities for for sexual harassment or whatever. Oh you see the jews. The jews we jews always hear about jews running the media. We always go. Oh why wasn't i invite because we intuitively respond to that. It's all us. We all make the same dumb joke in some one another. Because we're intuitively saying the jews. The jews don't do almost anything although we do feel a sense of the idea of the corporate acting of any group of that dimension is silly silly thing behind all races all right so i say we got so i just want to say one thing and it's triggering in means Just preparing everybody for that first of all. The the jews weren't the only middleman minority in history. They weren't even the only middleman minority invoices where they where a middleman minorities when the jews were running the marketplace of the ottoman empire standing next to them at the stall owner and probably in larger numbers where the greek christians through were massive traitors merchants throughout the ottoman empire with the jews and for the same reasons because they had these networks because they had these affinity hours talking to negative jews being replaced by muslims as an amendment is throughout the mediterranean in south. America there are huge communities of japanese of lebanese of syrians. And they all have these networks and they all have these commercial ties and they all serve at his face some discrimination because of it their middleman minorities everywhere and all through history and jews alone came to control the world news stories..

They may simply than jews because of the history of the relationship of christianity in a slump to jews. There's a lot of demonization there. And there's a whole history of the jews representing things in slavic and christian tradition representing bad things representing the rejection of the true revelation. And things of that.

"Easy to read writer a popular columnist television anchor who also became minister. Popular must be sending on but he's not an intellectual he came and said was. I think it's time that we jews. Israeli jews stop talking about anti semitism and something caused by the diaz boric edition of the jews. It's in fact caused by the antisemites own psychic problems from psychic from psychic and therefore if we understand that the anti semite is the subject of antisemitism not jew then we suddenly discover a whole world allies. Because we're not thinking of anti semitism is a separate hatred. Were actually thinking of it. As a hatred among all of humanity and therefore all of the oppressed peoples and all of the hated all of the repressed and hunted down and and persecuted are all our allies and that was the speech at the anti semitism conference.

It is something new and something special not new in the sense that it's millennial but it's something much released separate from the usual run of bigotry and prejudice and racism and the sociology of is different. And we have to think about it that way. And this reason semitism holocaust where other hatreds don't lead the holocaust and even the holocaust. There are other other genocides caused by other bigotry but the holocaust was different than those genocides. Now that is a very common jewish view and deeply held jews. It's part i would even say a civic religion most jewish communities today that anti semitism is different but the holocaust is different but trumbull. Was that when you actually called right wingers and sent them. How exact willing. Why anti semitism different from the hutu. Hatred of the took sees that led to a million dead in rwanda in one hundred days back in the nineties. Why is it worse than bosnia. Why is it worse than what. The turks did to the armenians why actually specific there are so many genocides in human history and some of the nineties and there is a very strong case. I recently spoke to irwin. Cotler was making. This case may loudly that the. What's the weaker in western. China is a genocide very smart sharp. Also people are making that case now so maybe genocides are not so unique themselves. Some right now. What's happening right now. Depending on how you define yes. Some parts of the un come out and said you know there are elements of genocide..

"Rowdy dragging here back again with this week's final weekly fantasy update the daytona road course. What an awesome race. The finish really mixed things up.

Who's looks like he felt a little short term. Gators three took that with two hundred and forty two points. Now the final weekly had two hundred and seventy two players to start the season it bumped up to three hundred and forty three players so a whole bunch of people had joined us. But now we're back down to two hundred sixteen players so i'm thinking there was a consolidation period where nascar just dumped. Everyone who had goose eggs for the first brace the second race or both races and Either that or toby was pushing some buttons and deleted everybody in any event if you have played with us before all you have to log back in and make your picks in. You're good to go however you're going to have to join the league now. Okay so moving right along. Let's take a look at homestead miami speedway.

Google abandons effort to create video games less than 2 years after it was announced

"This is not me piling on but as you can see this will play almost directly off of what we talked about yesterday. Google has announced that it will close to stadia game studios one. La in one in montreal and that stadium ahead. Jade raymond is leaving. This means about one hundred and fifty game developers will be laid off. I believe but what everyone is wondering about is what this means for the stadium. Project overall quoting kukuh cacao began to hear rumblings from sources close to stadium last week that google service was heading for a major change. One games industry source told kentucky that google was cancelling multiple projects. Basically games slated for release beyond a specific twenty twenty one window though they believed games close to release would still come out today. Bring some clarification. Google will continue to operate the stadia gaming service and it's ten dollar monthly stadia pro service but it's unclear how many if any exclusive games will still come the service though. The company has indicated that it can still sign new games and will bring more third party releases to the platform it nevertheless will look to many like a drawdown of the plan to have state run as a bona fide competitor to console platforms. The company plans to begin offering its stadium tech to publishers opening up the possibility for stadia to become the streaming tech for other video game companies. Google stadia operations longtime console. Executive phil harrison will focus on pursuing these new partnerships and quote. So let me attempt to parse that or at least translate it into non gamer laymen talk. Google stadia appear to be getting out of the game. Making business of having in house game studios. The plan apparently is to now focus on offering stadia directly to publishers a other gaming platforms alongside offering stadium wpro to the public. So that kind of makes sense. Because i've said before. Google internally at least i've heard largely. Thanks have stadium as the raison. D'etre for google's entire google cloud initiatives or at least maybe vice versa point as stadium is largely justification for google's continued huge investments in cloud stuff. Even though google cloud projects are significantly behind amazon and microsoft at least as being leaders in this field and remember. Google is in cost cutting mode. It seems like so on the one hand. This actually makes a ton of sense as david. Rettig tweeted quote with stadium. Potentially becoming a back end service. I think this may illuminate. Where cloud gaming is headed. Existing storefronts and publishers continued to dominate but canal offer stream only games at a reduced cost to widen their audience. I can definitely see a future where you'll be able to by far christ sixteen on steam but there's now a forty dollars stream only version that lets you have the whole game but streamed at ten eighty p with the option unlock local play at an additional cost and quote in other words. Google play for its cloud business to be back end piping for the future of the entire gaming industry but at the same time. Can you trust google

"Welcome to another edition of Nascar America at home at home for three of us at the race track for one of US have myself Steve. Jeff Burton Dale and the driver of the number eight. Catch Chevy for our CR tyler. Rettig straight off of what seventh-place good rundown demand by last lap. Air Jones had a problem there and was right on my tail and he was about to get that position from me but had to fight hard those last few laps and was able to close it out with some place. Finish dollar your fast all day long. And you know what? What was it about your car? Were you surprised at how good it was? And where do you think you were the strongest? And how are you able to get you know? Drive yourself up through the field. You had to pass a lot of cars all day long. Yeah I made a few mistakes on the first start and really didn't pass anybody and then after the second start that we had there I I really didn't get going at all. I was probably further back than what I started. And then all of a sudden I just start rolling the top one into pretty good runs close to the fence before it really got rub it in and we hope to make a lot of time up there but Yeah it was a tough day. I mean we just finally got tradition in the top five caught. Peace that Louis New Banner and We tried to fix that and get that off the car we had a control. Tyre and all the way back to twenty three. Start of the day add. Add to come to the front again or try to Best we got with seven so tyler junior. Now we're talking during the race about your line you and how you just mentioned it. Run highlight and wanted to a lot of people. Run the high line in the middle of the. You're running it on the exit until you actually use a lot of racetrack up kind of no man's land if if you got two or three inches too far out you're gonNA hit the wall. How are you so confident to run up there at such a young age? Well Great Valentine's in the simulator? We tire out of the tires. It Brad Miller of it actually didn't slow the car down that much and it actually felt really really good. I was really surprised that even worked in the simulator and obviously we all know de Hamlin makes a credible amount of time even more inexpensive expanding cars than than a cup car but with today star fall off that we saw that line came into play really early and I was almost scared like what Danny likes joke about is. I don't want to use it too much and show my hand but it was so Dang fast at times that it was it was it was hard not to run in it but we definitely for sure about halfway through the race made a few wrong adjustments and it allowed everybody else to catch up to us but I mean I got braces Darlington race. That long it's going to change more than I've ever experienced there an xfinity car so that was. It was definitely a challenge today.

What is Postpartum Depression? Recognizing the Signs and Getting Help

"There was this myth. That women couldn't possibly be depressed during pregnancy. There's such a happy time. That's Dr Jennifer Pain. She's a psychiatrist and directs. The women's Mood Disorder Center at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore and the reality. -ality is a lot of women struggle with depression and anxiety during pregnancy as well as during the postpartum time period about one in seven women experienced this and and yet we don't talk about it much for thirty six year old Meghan rettig. It kicked shortly after. She gave birth to a son lost me. I would force myself to see people people and smile and say you know everything's great and then the second I had a chance where I wasn't holding him I could go to my room and cry and I probably couldn't count how many hours a day I cried. Sorry harder to this is harder to do than then you I think it is this is. NPR Life Kit. We're talking about anxiety and depression during pregnancy and postpartum I cover mental health for NPR and over the past year. I've been doing a lot of reporting on this topic in this episode will tell you how to identify symptoms fine in treatment and give you useful tips on how to manage your mood and wellbeing during this time and this isn't just pregnant women new moms it's for spouses. Parents parents siblings close friends as well. Because chances are you will be the first person to realize that your spouse or daughter or friend is struggling in. You can help refined treatment. We heard from over three hundred women who wrote who to us about their experience with anxiety. Depression during pregnancy and postpartum. Many of them said it took them a while to realize there were depressed and most of them felt ashamed and blamed themselves for it. He is making riddick. I felt guilty about how I felt so I absolutely tried to hide it from everybody and I would put on the best appearance I could. That's why most women don't see count says Dr Jennifer Pain. It is hard to become a new mother but then if a woman's depressed on top of that she's going to have negative feelings about herself as part of the depression and it becomes an even bigger thing but she stresses that depression isn't the mother's fault or failing it's a complication of pregnancy and childbirth house. pardom depression is actually the most common complication of childbirth. I that's our first takeaway. Depression and anxiety can be complications of pregnancy and childbirth just like just diabetes and hypertension. Their mental illnesses just like anxiety and depression at any other point of time as for what causes it. Jennifer pain says researches stone fully. I understand it but most mental illnesses she says are caused by a combination of biological factors and life circumstances in this case she says hormones hormones likely play a big role so we think in the postpartum time period that what happens is estrogen and progesterone levels which have been increasing throughout pregnancy precipitously drop And so there's basically a massive hormonal withdrawal from the brain and if someone had had anxiety or depression before they became pregnant their degree to risk. Now what makes women more vulnerable at the stage. Is that major life transitions. Sion's are big triggers for mental illnesses like pregnancy. And having a child it's a wonderful life change for many people but that doesn't mean it's not stressful You have to think about finances you have to think about caring for an infant. All of these factors come together to create a perfect perfect storm. And the reason it's really important to address this as pain is that if left untreated. It has long-term consequences on the baby's health and development so fabius whose moms were severely depressed postpartum time period have lower. IQ's slower language development. It's and more behavioral problems. Probably because they're not getting that normal interaction That mom's generally give their infants in the postpartum time period. Red And there are health risks for the mom to some women and the feeling suicidal in some even die by suicide in the first year postpartum others like Meghan rettig. Nick who wrote to US set these seriously thought about leaving their baby and spouse. I thought that I wasn't good enough for them. And that if I were just to leave leave that my husband could find a better wife and my son could find a better mother that he'd be able to find somebody to replace me. Who would be more adequate pain? Says it is important important to get the mother into treatment as soon as possible. Because I we save mom's not happy. No one's happy now. We're telling you this not not to scare you. The good news here is that this is treatable and with the right treatment women recover and do well but in order to get treatment. You I need to know if you're depressed that's our takeaway number to know what symptoms to look for and we're going to break them down for you. What I tend and to look for are women? Who are you know? Barely getting themselves together and taking care of the baby doctor. Paint says is if you're struggling to do daily activities every day for two weeks or more that's an indication you need help. Many women who wrote to us about their experience appearance with postpartum depression set the felt detached from their baby. Including Riddick I was afraid that I would never love him I. I thought that this is the bond between mother and child is the love that is so You know infallible. And I was afraid raid that I would never feel that because I didn't feel it in the beginning and there's a whole range of symptoms. Here's Dr Paint again. Many women when they're depressed have have low mood. Can't get out of bed. Have trouble concentrating trouble eating properly don't sleep well etc.. Anger can also be a symptom. Many women will get angry. That the baby's waking them up again or will not settle down and that can be really overwhelming feeling and then of course. It's a vicious vicious cycle because then the woman feels guilty. Thinks she's a bad mother and it just goes and goes in circles. She says many women also become really anxious anxious anxiety. Disorders are very common and pregnancy as well and those can look like generalized anxiety or having panic attacks or the anxieties eighties disguised as parenting worries. Only for some women worries play on repeat in their head like they did for Angelina Spicer. One of the MOMS who wrote to US Spicer Spicer is a comedian. And she's on a mission to normalize postpartum depression after what she went through the thoughts for me were like is she gonNa stop breathing. Everything is the dog gonNA come in and eat us up you know. It was just really random but vivid and recurring. You and the intrusive thoughts would haunt me at night mostly during like the three am feed or the five am feed. When I was alone alone in a dark room with just my daughter and I now if your spouse or a friend of family member and you're not with the pregnant woman or new mom for extended periods of time you may not see all these symptoms? So how do you tell if moments depressed. When people are depressed? They look very different. There is different. They look at and detached if they smile. It doesn't go up to there is Many people will become slower in their thinking and they're speaking process. So if you or someone you love has any of these symptoms. It's important to find signed help that's our takeaway number three ask for help. Pizza's the best place to start is with the doctor. Women see two main doctors. In the postpartum time period. One is their OBI and the others. The pediatrician and pediatricians are actually starting to screen as well because they recognize nuys. That mom being healthy is an important part of the child being healthy. You mean screen the mother for depression. Yes but many people are not used to talking to a doctor about their mental health. So how do you start that conversation. I think talking straight great is probably the number one tip. I have you know I'm feeling depressed. I can't sleep when the baby is sleeping. I'm not getting enough to eat and I've lost more weight than I expected. But just being very concrete and In clear what the doctor that there is a problem. You doctor can prescribe you. An antidepressant which has is being shown to be safe and effective during pregnancy. And when you breastfeeding and research shows the talk therapy is also very helpful. Your doctor can refer you to to a therapist or counselor remember. Treatment will look different for

Every Team's Top Potential Free-Agent Targets After 2019 NBA Draft

Every Team's Top Potential Free-Agent Targets After 2019 NBA Draft

"You about to be immersed in woke bombs, because it is that time of the year. Our NBA insider, everyone else joins us. Whoa. Just before we get into free agency, which is going to be interesting. We are now what twelve hours removed from the draft. Your initial takes who won who lost? Well, I thought the two teams who made the most significant trade last night. New Orleans, and Atlanta, both fared very well maximize the assets that they had Atlanta moving up into number four. To get. The hunter from Virginia. Maybe most versatile forward in this draft the best defensive player player doesn't need the ball in his hands. They've got a lot of scoring on Atlanta team. And then Cam, reddish, who is probably a top three or four talent taking a little bit of a flyer on him at ten and then New Orleans, you know, their ability to keep expanding this Anthony Davis trade. They got Jackson Hayes at center beyond Ziya Williamson David Griffin, thanks, that's going to give them in the long term. Maybe the most athletic front court in the league pick up another first round pick. And now also have nearly thirty million dollars in salary cap space to go out and free agency. And some veterans to this team that could make it conceivable that, that the pelicans could make the playoffs in their first year without Anthony Davis. And usually when you trade a player of that, caliber. From a small market, you're going into a full rebuild. But I think the winning the lottery being able to get Zion Williamson has a lot of David Griffin to go and just the opposite direction. And they're set up really well in New Orleans, talking about teams on the way up in there seems kind of scratching our heads about that would be the Celtics. What what's going on there? Well, listen, they're preparing to lose career being Al Horford in free agency. They've got in the neighborhood of twenty six twenty seven twenty eight million dollars in cap space, they could use that to go after Senator to replace Al Horford. Nicola Busa vich in Orlando's a free agent. The Lakers have interest there if they can get the cap space for him if they want to put all in one player, but which is at priority in Orlando. You know, there's I think there's motivation on both sides to get a deal done. But if they weren't able to, you know, Boston's and position to swoop in there and try to make a deal with vich Boston still has some really good young players. Now they go from team that thought they were ready to compete for championships to a team now built around Jason Tatum. Jalen Brown Gordon Hayward who still on the right side of thirty years old, and who probably will have a much better season this year than last. But they've got to address that point guard position in Boston. They obviously have taken a step back if both of those players are gone free agency and that's and that's how they feel. That's how it appears right now talking to Adrian ward NASCAR ESPN NBA insider on the show Pennzoil performance line. And something we had Brian win horse on earlier. We're talking a little bit about as teams you mentioned move things around or creating cap space right now. The idea that the seventy Sixers with some available cap space could potentially take shot or try and get a meeting with Kawhi Leonard coming up in free agency. Tell us what you think about the viability of that. Oh, I think they'll get a meeting. I mean listen getting a meeting and being a serious contender for free agent are two different things and very often the relationships in place that will allow a team to get a meeting I thought all along Philadelphia would probably get a meeting for Leonard. I think the Knicks will also get a meeting with Leonard, but the front runners are still Toronto and the clippers. But. Players and their representatives will meet often sometimes as a courtesy with other teams but their focus in Philadelphia is keeping their own. And that's Jimmy Butler Tobias Harris and JJ Rettig. He's an important part of that group too, and he's coming off an outstanding season. It's going to be expensive to keep that team together. They knew that when they made the trades for Harris and for Butler, but their priorities to keep them and also find a way to keep there. You know, I think they may get a meeting with Leonard, but I don't think they're going to be a physician to sign them or insider, eighty ask is with us right now. Whoa. What, what are we hearing? The latest on the, the possibility that there might be a sign and trade deal that keeps Kevin Durant in Golden State, while he's rehabbing. So he gets his money, and then they'll be able to get something for money moves on trade. I don't know anything about that. I think the focus and Golden State right now is to try to sign Kevin Durant to keep Kevin Durant in with the warriors. They're going to offer him a five-year max contract, just as they were before the Killys injury. You know all the options that were there for Kevin Durant before that injury are still there. All the teams that were recruiting him that we're willing to essentially offer them the full scholarship, nobody's pulling back on the book or the meal plan, he's getting full scholarship from everybody. Maximum. Allowable for years with another team five years with the warriors, and they're determined to try to keep him keep Klay Thompson. Great analogy, by the way. As far as actual galleys of free agent when you can actually talk and deal with players. Forgetting that how much of the race is going on right now in the timing issues of these teams talking back door to try and get these things done. Now I mean we live in the real world, Mike and free agency started weeks ago just did. And so it's ongoing. You cannot keep people from talking, there are different philosophies out there. There are different styles going at it. I'm not saying every team is out every free agent is out, literally to go shitting numbers. But are there, some yes there are, and that's always been the case? But I think because of how many teams have so much you have over ten I think ten eleven teams with over twenty million dollars in space and teams who could go get it with one trade. Or waving a player who's got a partial guarantee. So there's lots of moving parts in this free agency teams don't want to be left behind. but you could also you can talk to your own player all the way through boston was able to talk about extension with al horford and it didn't look like they were not close on the numbers and that's why horford is headed in the free agency he feels they have some confidence there's a much bigger offer or offers out there for

Welcome to brain stuff. A production of iheartradio. Hey, brain stuff. Lauren Vogel bomb here. Some animals have a reputation that's hard to shake take a camel spider. Many Americans are familiar with them based on photos that came out of the Iraq war in the early two thousands a giant, desert spider, with a leg span somewhere between the size of a pack of cigarettes and a full grown man's calf though. The latter one turned out to be a trick of forced perspective. There were rulers, they enter the desert screaming and jumping on camels they would hide an ambush in sleeping bags ready to inject you with venom, but US military personnel are not the first to tell stories about the camel spider in South Africa. There's sometimes called beard-trimmers, because some people believe that if you sleep on the ground camel, spiders, will come trim your hair in your sleep and use it to line, their nests in parts of North Africa. And the Middle East legend has it that they choose the bellies of camels until their intestines fallout. So they can eat them or that they can lay their eggs in their stomachs. None of this is true, of course, for starters, camel, spiders, are not spiders at all. All but solid few goods, these arachnids live on every continent, except in article, and ustralia and all one thousand one hundred and fifty species have eight legs and two body sections, like spiders, scorpions ticks, and mites, but they're different enough to belong to their own order. Secondly, they are aggressive, but they're also none venomous, and the large jaws of most species can't even breakthrough human skin much less camels belly the largest camel, spider has a leg span of around six to eight inches. That's fifteen to twenty centimeters, which is bid for a spider, but it's not horror movie territory. And they seem to take little to no observable interest in human hair. We spoke with Christy Rettig, founder of the bug chicks educational company that uses arthropods to teach young people about social issues like prejudice racism, educational, potential and personal development. She said that thing about sell a few goods is you don't really need to make stuff up about them for them to be fascinating. I was in Kenya. When I first saw one and I went to catch it and it ran up the side of the wall. Right up to my I height it. Reared. Back in rubbed its jaws together to strangulate. Some people say they scream, but it's more of a hissing rasping noise, it had such an attitude. I just fell in love. It would seem difficult to fall in love with an Iraq did with these stage presence of a pro wrestler, and the body of an animal who's parts were scavenged from the invertebrate salvage yard but such is the allure of the camel spider Radic said if you do a rapid count of what appears to be legs. They look like they have ten legs. But their first pair actually mouth parts called pep helps I kind of think of them as mouth hands, they helped facilitate bringing prey into their big jaws when they run they use them, kind of, like antenna or long legs in the front. They also have mouth clause called Chelsea's which are used for a dizzying variety of purposes, one of which seems to be transferring packets of sperm, for male to female camel, spiders, most sell a few gets are nocturnal extremely territorial and top predators in arid ecosystems. They eat other predators in the same size range, as them or a bit larger. But even eat each other, they don't have venom. It's unnecessary because their jaws are so powerful. They can manipulate their food through their mouths by sawing their prey back and forth like an old timey cartoon character eating a cob of corn. Solid few goods are also wildly fast able to reach speeds of about ten miles per hour that's sixteen kilometers per hour and seemed to be able to run for as long as you care to chase them. But with that comes metabolism that requires nearly constant fuelling. So they eat a lot, but that doesn't necessarily explain ones. L A few good behavior mass aunt assassinations for some reason, camel, spiders, will sometimes go after an ants, nest just tearing answered half left and right until they're surrounded by an enormous heap of rented, aunt carcasses some scientists think maybe they're killing ants to save them as a stack for later. But read it published a paper in two thousand fourteen about the diet of solid few goods, and she and her co author found that they don't, particularly, like eating ants another explanation for this behavior. Could be that there. Trying to clear out the ant nest in order to find a nice place to escape the desert sun. But it's really a mystery as to why they do this Rettig pointed out that another possibility though. Is that camel spiders attack Aetna's to get the larva and pupa inside? She explained these don't bite and are super soft squishy little protein and fat bombs. But you can add the mass murder of ants to the long list of things. Scientists don't understand about solid fuel goods. But remember, even though they act wild they can't hurt you Radic said just because something is a predator or even defensive or aggressive. It doesn't make it a bad or mean animal cell. A few kids have so much, great attitude, and they're soft and fuzzy when you pet one, it's like, petting a little mouse. A little demon mouse.

Causes of muscle twitches and how to relieve them

"If any of you listeners have experienced muscle cramps or muscle spasms. You know, how painful they can be. I mean, a muscle cramp or a Charley horse in the middle of the night might wake you up just wanting to scream, right? A muscle spasm in your back while you're driving home from work can bring tears to your eyes. So isn't it time to ask yourself? What are some of the common causes of muscle cramps or what might be the cause of my muscle spasms? Well, here's one idea for you. The hydration dehydration is actually a leading cause of. Muscle cramps, and you know, certainly dehydration can be caused by not drinking enough water throughout the day. But also think about this you might get dehydrated because you exercise frequently and you're a heavy sweater. You're gonna lose water in your sweat, and you're gonna lose minerals. If you have a problem with some ongoing diarrhea for several days, or maybe several weeks, certainly that can leave you dehydrated. And and you lose minerals that way as well. Here's another one taking dia Rettig medication for high blood pressure. And I usually if you have high blood pressure and the doctor wants to put you on a prescription medication. The first line of therapy that they'll try is going to be a diorite at the times, they call it a water pill. So that can dehydrate you and also deplete you of minerals and Shelby. I think you mentioned this earlier. We can't forget drinking several cups of coffee or other caffeinated beverages. Not only depletes. Minerals. But you lose more water, and you can become dehydrated so many different causes of dehydration and many different causes of mineral deficiencies right on Cassie before we went to break. We were. We were getting our listeners to think about we'll we'll what are some other reasons why besides dehydration. What would be some other reasons why Americans are struggling with mineral deficiencies, and so some overlap there, of course, you know, drinking beverages that that deplete are minerals like soda eight. We know we've talked a lot about soda on dishing up nutrition. It doesn't matter if it's regular or diet. It's still going to have that sugar that and chemicals that Leach minerals from our muscles, and our bones. Right, right. And we know that the Brown sodas with the phosphorous acid are especially harmful for our bones.

Fallout Grows As Partial Government Shutdown Drags On Into New Year

"We are in day seven of the partial federal government shutdown, and there's no end in sight, President Trump wants congress to approve billions of dollars for a border wall. Democrats who are set to take control of the house next week saying, no, so far the effects of this shutdown have been relatively muted. Many people are taking time off for the holidays, but the fallout could grow if the shutdown stretches well into the new year as NPR's Scott Horsely reports the two weeks around Christmas are some of the busiest Joshua tree national park in California when rock climbers and car campers flocked to the high desert getaway the cactus and the campers are still there this week, but the Rangers would ordinarily patrol the park have been sent packing by the government, shutdown visitor centers are closed all the bathrooms are still open. But they're not being maintained right now by the park service. So the local community has rallied together and started cleaning the bathrooms and restocking. Toilet paper. John. The Riddick runs a nonprofit group called friends of Josh which. Three national park. He says those friends are grateful access to the park has not been cut off. But with the government shutdown approaching its second weekend, and no sign of compromise on the horizon, the rhetoric and others are digging in for what could be a long term project as dumpsters fill up and the pit toilets fill up. You know, what kind of solutions can we make to solve those problems? So far, the shutdown affecting about a quarter of the federal government has been little more than an inconvenience to some and invisible. Too many critical federal employees have stayed on the job. And while they're not being paid at the moment that won't really show up until their next paychecks are due January eleventh still Jacqueline Simon who's with the largest union federal workers says the longer the shutdown drags on the more widely its effects we felt your agency or affected by the funding wrap that had a little bit of money leftover her take him to the end of the year. But that money will be running out today Monday. And i'm. So more things will be shutting down the EPA. For example, has announced plans to hold operations at midnight tonight. This Massoni and museum and the national zoo will shutter their doors next week food stamps and the school lunch program or funded through January, but could take a hit after that. If the shutdown continues White House, it kind of has Kevin Hassett says the shutdown should not do lasting damage to the US economy. But he admits it could cause a blip in the unemployment rate. If hundreds of thousands of federal workers are still idle in a couple of weeks, if the shutdown extended through the job survey week about January tenth, then the government workers who are not reporting to work would show up in the unemployment statistics as well. But that would be more of a temporary thing. It's not something that we expect his really material for the outlive, social security and Medicare payments are still being made as usual, but applications for FHA back mortgages could be delayed FEMA briefly rattled the housing market. When the agency said it would. Up selling flood insurance policies during the shutdown Allen decker who has the insurance committee for the national association of realtors says that could have jeopardized as many as forty thousand home sales each month, if they're getting a mortgage, they gotta have flood insurance. And if they can't get the flood insurance or not able to get the mortgage, you know, the Bank requires it. So it's definitely can affect things under pressure. Fema backtrack late Friday instead it would resume selling flood insurance for now. Volunteers will keep scrubbing toilets at Joshua tree national park, but joined the Rettig says that's no substitute for the Park Rangers who ordinarily keep an eye on the native American rock, art and other history dotting the desert landscape. In unique artifacts up there that need to be protected by a fully staff National Park Service staff, and my concern is right now that those artifacts and those one of a kind kind of things in the park are unprotected. Unfortunately, that park protection like much of what the federal government does usually attracts little attention until it's gone. It's got Worsely NPR news. The White House.

MLB -- Boston Red Sox keep Houston Astros within their reach

"Is way out of trouble. Shabby. The legend do worked on ESPN radio and the game last night with Jessica Minoza with that call in the bottom of the first inning, the Red Sox struck, I recommend Grasset or swang in a live Dr, bass it out of the right center field. Cut it off as Rettig bet. Surround third. He's into score the Red Sox two batters in Leded wanted nothing. You could tell the Gary cole- was struggling for his secondary stuff and Rafael Devers took advantage to two on the way swing ground basically to left via Benintendi scores Bogart. So stop it. Third as federalis holds them up. It's an RBI single Deckers the other way. And it's too dummy. David price in the Red Sox had a quick to nothing lead, but in the top of the second inning, the Astros counter-attacked. Swing a line drive, fair ball inside the first base line into scores Correa Maldonado on his heels Springer into second. Just like that. The Astros have tied it up to to a soft line drive that just hung in the air and hung in the air and Pierce diving wasn't able to reach it in the top of the third. The Astros took the lead, here's a three to swing and a high fly ball left field that will back there on its way dawn over the monster Marwick Gonzales, a two run blast. The Astros have a four, two lead. After the game, Garrett, Cole would talk about what happened next is maybe being the pivot point because he did not have shutdown inning and the bottom of the third inning. After the Astor's took the lead, this is what happened. Jackie Bradley Jr. the plate bowl turns down the rubber now to one. Swing and a high fly ball towards the left field corner Gonzales swords Alon that was off the lobster into score Bogart's Pierce autists heels here comes Denver's Bradley's into second Genesee Bradley Jr. clears the bases, Red Sox by Iran Boston on top five four is that was high up onto the monster just inside the poll state of the park. It was still five, four in the bottom of the seventh inning. Lance mccullers junior was on the mound behind the plate Martine Maldonado and look Lance mccullers union as one of the best breaking balls in baseball in Maldonado acknowledged that what happened in the bottom of the seventh inning, which was repeated problems. Catching baseball may have been because his unfamiliarity with that great curl ball mccullers give lesson. Now it's left up to Bogart with bets at third to down the pitch outside off the global Maldonado. Haney Red Sox have an insurance run that one was up at a way Maldonado couldn't keep it in front and Mukhi bets, grants home six, four, Boston Rick came out of the Red Sox bullpen to throw the top of the eighth inning attacking headers and then Mookie Betts applied the coup gras in the bottom of the eighth inning. One live base hit out of the right field. That's with the knocked Evers around. Third, he's to score bet slides into second. It's an RV I double Mookie delivers than it seven to four in the top of the night. Then Craig kimbrel emerged from the Boston Doug ad. And you remember what happened at the end of the Anki series. He struggled to find home plate and there was some anxiety in the stands at Fenway park as Kimball started at night inning, and the Astros began to rally on swang in a ball ham left field towards the monster, and that's high off the monster. Now to Vail take the turn will hang on at first. He kinda limps back in there. That's an RBI single off the monster. And now it's seven, five next to the plate, Alex bregman who was red hot at the end of the regular season, the Red Sox staff, it made it clear decision not to pitch to him six walks in the firm. Two-game series. Plus he was hit by a pitch in another plate appearance in this case, Kimbrell had to throw them, and this is what happened regmunt back in a way to get a one, the pitch swing and a high fly ball, left field Benintendi near the wall and makes the catch, and that is the ballgame. Just the base of the green monster hold it in and kimbrel by the skin of his teeth to close it out and the Red Sox. Hang onto what it in the Astros clubhouse after the game bregman was asked about whether or not he thought he got it. He said, no, if I got it, it would have been out in the street. Mookie Betts was on the field after the game, and I caught up with them. We did great. No, yet out. We've proven that we've been in both games. Everyone was second one and we'll just continue to play are going into Houston. When asked you about a couple of pitchers, David price, you know the scrutiny that's been on early game, keeps you guys right there. You guys win a game. He starts. Yeah. I mean, he's a great pitcher, you know, no matter what people say goes out. He are thirty million dollars a year. For reason he showed about record cells work out of the bullpen. He's, you know, he's done great. Starting out of the bullpen anywhere you put up. You know, he's got. And compete Fisher. AJ Hinch. The Astros manager talked about Mukhi bets ignited from the very beginning of the game. I mean, this place energy of this place when he comes up too bad is is really electrifying. So when you try to minimize much as you can in front of them, we didn't do a great job of that today. But from the the first bat- on, he kind of set the tone from the very beginning. So it's why he's very much MVP candidate. AJ was asked also about looking bad's, going around the bases in that seventh inning to make the score six, two, four at that time, give a lesson the insurance from this word and the seven Makiko around the basis how unusual to see that with with its. He went around the basis that have to put a ball and play in on. That's those are tough in this in this type of series is tightly CEPA games. It's a long characteristic. I mean, obviously, mccullers abroad mccullers ended try to keep it a one run game with the way that this series can go. And it's almost like a Tiger Balm for me. So last to a couple of nasty breaking ball, just look like, you know, Martinez lost it in the people in center field or just got a little bit got a little bit lax back. There had a little tough time and Mukhi went around the bases. I walk and then no-ball plane is of scorn before this series began AJ Hinch raved about Mukhi bets in his impact on the Red Sox. And Alex Cora was asked about Hinch comments on mochi and his play. Give lesson. Listen. A game AJ called Mukhi ticking time bomb, and he kind of went off tonight. Do you think it was more himself tonight? You said you wanted to get on the air did a couple of times? Yeah, Jesus Margai they went to Stanford.
