Transforming Infused Biologics into Injectables

"Rene, thanks for joining us. Thank. You Danny a pleasure to be here. We're GONNA talk about how It's enhanced drug delivery technology and how the company has rebuilt its business strategy around this, let's start with enhanced though what is enhance? That's a great question. Enhance is based on the proprietary enzyme recumbent Human Highly Rana Days Ph twenty. There is a human enzyme on human, highly Rhonda's enzyme and on accommodate version of that. I'd be happy to go into a little bit more about how it works if you'd like. What's the normal function of the enzyme in the body? Okay. So a little bit of biology then. So if you think about the Subcu-, if you think about the skin, there are three layers, the epidermis, the Germans, and then subcutaneous stays. The subcutaneous space is primarily composed. Of fact, some structural components like Alaskan in college, and then a sugar call highly Ronin. Hiring Ronan Forms Gel like substance in the subcutaneous as and this is what's important when it comes to enhance that that GEL like substance creates a resistance to injecting omnium into this up you space the typical volumes you can inject are usually wanted to amounts of subcutaneous. And so. What the enzyme does is it is it breaks down the highly Raanan as as you're jetting drug and the Enzyme Co formulated together. If rates out highly on, she can actually deliver large volumes of injections subcutaneous slow. And that's how drug. Works. So, when we think of That are infused into a patient is volume the issue of why those drugs get infused as opposed to inject it exactly most of the biologics are large lions and they can be sixty, nine, hundred miles. It depends on the concentration if a partner if a company wants to coach with smaller injection buying that could be administered subcutaneous -ly they we co formulated with our enzyme and that formulated product is injected. subcutaneous league are typical products. are in the range of five to twenty EML's. which is allow a lot more than the standard one to two that you can deliver without the enzyme. And what is it actually doing wants it's formulated with a biologic. So, it doesn't do anything to the biologic. But when you inject the CO formulated product into the subcutaneous face, the enzyme breaks down the highly are mentioned that the skin it's a sugar that's naturally in the skin. It breaks it down and opens the state think about like opening the secure space that larger volume have be dispersed, and some of the drug can then be absorbed into the. Circulation. So it facilitates fat sub Q. Injection Large on fluids. What does it take to actually formulate a biologic with enhanced? Does it actually? Does it require doing something to bind it to it or is it just a matter of exciting it into the liquid? It's more than mixing. So typically what we do when we work with a partner on their therapeutic, is we I WANNA, make sure that the enzyme is compatible with their drug at there's no effect of the drug on the vice versa. So we test for compatibility. Then we would test for stability making sure that the two men combine the enzyme on the drug are. Stable a long period of time so that the drug can be manufactured I'm sitting on the shelf for a period of time. One says diamond than simply mixing the two together and the amount of enzyme relative to the amount of drug is extremely small the environment in the order of micrograms of material verses, the drugs which are usually in milligrams. So thousand fold differences.

How do you sell 5G in the middle of a pandemic?

"The last five months, the crow virus has shut down. The economy is kept many of us, stuck at home. Adding the fact that millions of people outta jobs disposable income is what it used to be. Years from Verizon's perspective. How do you sell five G. Environment? This is a technology that spoke promises to give you a high speed connection on the go. All of us aren't on the go anymore Where is the benefit of five g? You know it's it's it's an interesting. Question because you know we'd plan plan planned, and then all of a sudden nobody saw this come in and it's different but so there's some downsides to it but then there's also some upsides to it as well. I we have not seen. The demand for a fixed wireless access product like we are right now and you know we've we've been limited in what we can do from a forty perspective. With respect to fixed wireless access just because Waco talking about before Kinda bandwidth limitations. You know now is we put more band without they report millimeter wave out there that'll open up some some potential for more fixed wireless access tied. Products that we can offer to people you know, and that's GonNa come in Handy for for people you know especially in the covid environment if they're working from home, they can't go to get a good broadband connection. You can use wireless for you know underserved underprivileged folks we can use my fi and people can get on the on on websites or do their schoolwork. So we think there's a good opportunity They are some of the sales folks told me if I if I had blanket coverage millimeter wave everywhere they really be crushing it with fixed pilots access. Fisher be able to get gigabits of service on on a on a laptop wirelessly. Would you typically do at home with a normal Internet connection? So so we see we see opportunity there on the other side of it. You know we've put in some. You know in stadiums, we put some five G. millimeter wave deployments around the country We really showed it off at super bowl the capabilities there. But largely the those stadiums they're empty right now. So but we do believe that the people come back there and we're working. We're still working on the use cases in things that can really augment. People's experiences when they do return to stadiums. while. That's a good point I mean there are you have the pieces in place to make this work when society goes back normal? Problem is we don't really know when that will actually happen. And know curious to see what is what demand looks like right now, four five devices I know the element, some folks WanNA feature proof themselves won't be ready five G. What it's. Broadly available go out again but there's also the other element that folks are watching what they're spending a lot more right now there's a lot of uncertainty out there and so what are you seeing in terms of customer demand? You know I think there's maybe a better question at Ronin are are the CEO who runs our or consumer division can answer. But I I know for sure he's he sees good demand for five G.. Devices. I believe there's a staff that we've. We've sold the the most five G. Devices and I do think it's it's people probably early adopters people want to see the first. The first of its kind and. The promise we have to those folks as we continue to grow the network new capabilities will come on and as they do you'll be you'll start avail yourself of those no Serbs this and we're working closely with the application developer ecosystem so that they're developing things that will be able to leverage the what we call the currencies, really the capabilities if you will of what five G. Networks will bank. So we continue on we don't believe cove this last forever. And you know. But there's also other opportunities that we see that could five G. can help move. For example factories you know if you get more automation factories, you get a good millimeter way five G. system in. That is much more robust than safe current system. You may be able to do things more efficiently in in a factory. So those are those are things will work with customs on right now, that's a good segue because I know five G. isn't just about higher speech your phone, there is a lot more to five G.. I'm curious what you think the applications are five that specifically would help alleviate some of the issues we're having right now other telemedicine whether it's remote worker. What are some of the opportunities I know you talked about home broadband as one option but where some of the other opportunities out there? Yeah. I mean there's some the opportu while it's funny. So we you know we both ever landline network in wireless network and Bailey we're talking about wireless ear but on the landline side net to some extent on the wireless side, we've been monitoring every day I look at how what normal was before our networks are being. Utilized in wear geographically spread and looking at applications and so so what's happening gaming is huge game the growth of gaming like skyrocketed. It's actually come down a little bit because I think people figured out how to work from home. Initially, it was probably a little bit of a honeymoon period therapy were probably play more games we seem to come down, but it's still way high video applications now, everybody. Now, if you go back before pandemic, sure I knew how to use a Webex and maybe one other now I know like five different video things and video is going to be I think very important. In the future of five G. Because you're going to bring in things like Ar Vr. And Computer Vision Technology and you know. L. Type scenario so you can use computer vision to do different things. All of these kind of things require really. Snappy fast interfaces and really low latency. Scenarios all of which what five jails are wide brand band can bring people. Specific example you talked about telehealth I think that's we think there's going to be that's going to grow a lot I think just by virtue of people don't WanNa go to a doctor. people volve figure out ways to do things at home working right now with a firm that is using five G. along with our MAC. That we just announced they ws so they're able to really do edge computing and some. Run machine learning models out at the EDGE TO GET REAL TIME results. An an operating room. So with polyps and stuff, it makes it much easier for for these folks to operate 'cause right now, what they do is they have large server farms running these models in their hospitals that's costly. They break maintaining him as tough. If you could take all of that away, you can run these things in the cloud more effectively. That's good for everybody so good for the patients go to the hospital and. Moves things along. So it's it's really things like that. Like you said, if we just make this a snappier phone, that's that's really not what we're going for. We're going for one or new inputs, interfaces new experiences had you make things more efficient and it goes across the whole board of the economy we feel. So I'm really excited to see how this evolves and what. People will use these currencies, capabilities, new and stuff, and I can't wait to.

Ghost of Tsushima Is Getting Free Multiplayer Content

"Go of. Is getting a CO, op multiplayer mode I expected go suma to get content updates and still got my fingers crossed for a larger expansion or some kind of deal see. But one thing I didn't expect was online co op developer Sucker Punch as far as I know, has never really messed with multi-player I believe sly three honor among thieves had an offline multiplayer mode, but otherwise, they have always been a single player studio. But later, this year ghost of susha will get a free multi-player expansion I was going to summarize the playstation blog detailing the mode, but it's so succinct and explanatory the I'm just GonNa read most of it I hope that's okay the blog post comes from senior game designer Darren bridges who writes legends is an entirely new experience. It's a separate mode that doesn't follow Jin or the companions from his journey, but instead focuses on four warriors who have been built up as legends and stories. Told by the people of Emma Ghost of Sushi single player campaign focuses on an open world and exploring the natural beauty of the island. But legends is haunting and fantastical with locations and enemies inspired by Japanese, folktales and mythology an emphasis on cooperative combat and action. We designed legends to be an exclusively cooperative gameplay experience. You will be able to partner up with friends or via online matchmaking and play legends groups of two to four players. Each player can choose from one of four different. Character classes, the Samurai. Hunter Ronin or assassin. Each class has unique advantages and abilities that will reveal in the future with two players in. Gaza. Susana legends. You'll be able to play a series of CO, op story missions that escalate in difficulty building on the foundation of combat from the single player campaign. But with new magical twists that often require careful synchronization with your partner with four players, you'll be able to take on wave based survival missions, fighting groups of the toughest enemies. SUSHILA has. To offer including new only enemies with supernatural abilities. If you can best the story and survival missions, you may be confident enough to take on the four player raid that will arrive shortly after the launch of of Sushi Legends, sending you and your partners to an entirely new realm to challenge a brutal terrifying enemy. That blog post is linked in the show notes, which also has a trailer for the MoD. The blog concludes again, promising more details on classes and character customization in the future. I, Love Ghost of Sushila. My personal favourite game of the year so far I want more coast Sushila but if I'm being perfectly honest I don't know that this is what I want from that game. That hinges mostly on me personally, just really adoring single player experiences and rarely ever really getting excited about multi-player Games, the mythical setting of the various levels and stuff though. That element looks right. The trailer shows some of those areas and they look really cool.

Canceled Telluride Film Festival announces lineup

"Telluride film festival decided to announce what would have been the slate of films that they were GonNa, show on. September fourth when the festival is supposed to take out, take place before it was cancelled in July, and then we also started to get some news about the New York Film Festival, which will be world premiering a few titles. I. Still don't totally understand how the New, York Film Festival is happening, but let's just talk a little bit about what's going on with film festivals right now. So last year at telluride. They debuted the world premiere of Uncut Gems and Ford versus Ferrari and Judy and first cow, and they had the North American premiere of marriage story. This was a bountiful slate. Lots to see it was a very exciting time. This year, the slate was not a strong. There were some interesting films. There were some very relevant oscar-worthy conversational picks there. I think Francis. Leaves Amanite which many people have been talking about a new movie starring Kate winslet. Insertion Ronin. We're looking for that. How many Oscar nominations to search have at this point twelve fifteen? No. I think it's four, and this will be her fifth, which just seems like I just want to say when we made our really irresponsible Oscar predictions for this year and like having seen nothing I was like I, think Social Ronin will win for this movie that I haven't seen so. At least I think I did I meant to, if I didn't you know please like revised history.

"Ronin thanks for joining us. Thank you for having me on. We're GonNa talk about regulatory compliance, which may be an area that's not well understood a outside of the folks who directly are involved with it. I thought that the work I Cuba is. Interesting because it gets at the way, artificial intelligence and machine learning systems have the potential to transform all aspects of the pharmaceutical industry. We we hear a lot about how data silos impede research, but. I. Don't think people tend to think of this problem as it exists within a company on the regulatory side of the business, how big a problem is the creation of data silos in terms of regulatory compliance? Daniels a great question and it's. The one that we have been wrestling with tens of solutions because it, it is a growing problem I think it has always been an issue at. A healthcare and pharmaceutical companies, but I'm with the huge increase in regulatory requirements, changing regulations additional regulations. It is a growing problem and. In. Most companies have set up systems. Very they're very point solution base. The safety group will have their system regulating teams have. This is have multiple systems whether it's a publishing system. Tracking system. Validation systems can be different, and then the quality systems are also independent. It's an one of them and act. And so that? There's a lot of Ju- -plication interns of cross-referencing. Duplicate entry of data. And it makes it very hard and the administration regulation compliance reporting. A lot of work goes into. Trying to ensure that the data is connected and clean so that the submission timely end of good quality. As you think broadly about the the range of challenges. Companies face with regards to compliance and keeping up with changing regulations and. All of the high volume data they touch. What are some of the other challenges? I think the key one really is around into the evolving regulatory requirements. I mean if you think about Marketing of product in one hundred fifty countries, and each country has a different set of requirements when it comes to frequency and data that they require either on safety real of a product or something as simple as manufacturing chain, sure label change and having to do that across multiple products. That are on the market multiple. Those levels is a huge burden on companies I mean. The larger pharmaceutical companies have teens of over two thousand people looking in this space and a lot of what they do is a. Regular operations is collecting information sifting it from various different sources validating that to make sure that is accurate, and then understanding what the requirements are for the submissions that every country. As I think about the types of data that a regulatory department might touch. I think a lot of unstructured data. Things that don't lend themselves to automation. How labor intensive is this area working? And what's the opportunity to use artificial intelligence and machine learning to improve efficiencies and reduced time and cost? So. That's a really good question and I think you know one thing that is quite surprising to many people. Is that even in a clinical trial setting nowadays seventy percent of the data? Doesn't come through the traditional case ripple. Scans. It direct lab feeds. It's connected devices increasingly as we started to use them in clinical studies, so there's a huge amount of unstructured data. And, this is where machine learning and. Becomes really important because. Certainly NLP can be used to extract information. From these unstructured data's. Catalog it and then put it in a full that can be used in traditional safety, regulatory systems and I think that is where we see huge benefits from the use of. The more

Breathing Exercises

"Hi and welcome to mentally ause. I'm Evan and NASA's mentally it was corona virus a special episode out the pandemic and how we can look at mental health during it. Dan returned to her own. She's a free diver speaker on a breadth trainer. We're going to be talking about how we could use our time in lockdown to improve our breathing because so many of us have gotten into bad habits myself included especially with our terrible wise heracles. Do while from home and hunching overlap dope or going through some breathing exercises can help with anxiety and stress and struggling to fall asleep in lockdown. So how did you get into some silly? How did you get into breathing? I does sound like Israeli question but it's not really at. I discovered free diving Seven years ago now free diving is breath hold diving and I practice the death depth the depth disciplines which means I loan surface of the ocean. I take one very deep breath. And then we don't have as deep as I can on that one single breasts and I come back up on the same breath And in learning how to free dive your taught better breathing habits and how to use breathing to help relax station because that's incredibly important in free diving and Piqued my interest. And the more I continued with my free diving more interested. I got in how we breathed in how it can help us And that helped me to discover how bad breathing habits can can hinder us. Really Dumb and just Both physically and mentally and Yeah I go go quite interested all of that now. I help people improve their habits if necessary Why do you like free diving because to me? That sounds terrifying horrible. My parents think exactly the same thing I I loved a little bit about my history. Twenty years ago I was suffering from chronic depression and I was actually on the verge of suicide and I was very lucky to be able to find the strength to reach out with the sport of the Jess and family and friends. I turned my life around and I live a life today that I could ever dreamed of twenty years ago and one of the things that struck me so profoundly when I started free diving. Seven years ago was the peace and quiet as soon as I put my head under the water. Always background voices that a Gemini Negative at times And Forever Yapping. Away in the background just suddenly disappeared and they sense of calm and wellbeing being totally present in each and every moment as it happened was a intoxicating and I fell in love with it immediately. Yeah I can definitely see because I think so. Many people talk about What's it called open-air cold water swimming? And how powerful is Philip? Quieting your thoughts yes again. I think that's along the lines of the shock. Therapy of your mind can be wondering here there. And everywhere and suddenly the power. The intensity of the coldness of the water brings you frightened to yourself right in that in that very moment and it's refreshing. It's re- physically and mentally It's a release from the everyday chatter. That's going on in your mind and that's that's very pleasant to experience that so yeah I do think what is it about free diving. Because I think what you're saying about having to hold your breath for that sounds quite like intense life or death. Stop do you find that helpful for your mental health? It's life death if you don't follow some very simple rules and watched like he would never put to learn driver in Formula One car and the Nice basic rule free diving is you do not do a breath hold new water by yourself because if you do that you push too hard. Which isn't actually as difficult as it sounds you blackout and the thing about blacking out is it. Feels like it feels when you fall asleep. You're not aware that you're doing it. So the first and biggest rule of free diving is do not do breath. Hold near water by yourself And if you are doing it make sure you have someone who knows what they're doing looking off to you And from their Ronin The depth that I do and the the length of time. It takes me to do my dive. I've I've graduated to. Those levels vary slowly over very many years with lots and lots of training and. I don't come up from a dive about to sort of on that cusp at all. I'm very safety conscientious diver. I always dive with a safety. Taymor all my buddy who on training with and we look after each other and so while it certainly pushes each people's buttons because they consider it to be an extreme sport and the reason why is because we're denying ourselves one of the ultimate things that we need to live by denying ourselves It's actually an incredibly relaxing Cathartic peaceful sport. That's a wonderful way to face your fears in very calm controlled manner trashy work. Count what you're capable of and where where what you thought might have been assaulted barrier actually can flex a little bit you can achieve more so once you go into that and then you said you kind of Interest in breathing in general and learn more about. How did? Where'd you go to learn more about that? How do you learn more about breathing? The Internet's very very good place to start. But you over just save out the kind of the real stuff from the notes so helpful stuff and you know in the free diving world. There are lots of people who are much more experienced than me you. I've I've listened to learn from and I've looked into The medical side of things a lot. There there's in terms of breath were there is a massive spectrum that ranges from The sort of health side of things through to at this Rebirthing elements you can do this. Yoga prony come exercises that you can do which I actually incorporate some of them Into the stuff that I teach. But an says through to kind of the Cold War to therapies. That people can do as well. We're taking the styles of breathing or involved to help people to build up the sweat the list that she gets on and do it in and step into that ice bath and so it's it's a massive spectrum an I tended to on me have gone more towards the medical side of things whether as says documented reports and studies to show that this debris thing how it can be helpful both physically and mentally to us Because it just it carries more weight for me and I come from a medical family and my father would laugh. May Add to town. If I didn't wasn't able to back things up so yeah it's it's been very useful having that

Sebastian Durrand - Advice for Players to stay fit during the lockdown with world renowned strength and conditioning coach Seb Durrand

"Hello Sebastian. Welcome to the functional tennis podcast. Thank you happy to share Great Avalon and Journeys Tough Times. Where tennis players tennis trainers tennis coaches and a lot of other people are still at home and can't get out and can't train so looking forward to hearing some advice from you so first of all. How are you getting on? What Day is this for you? It's actually the day number and for us fan home and We try we're GONNA talk. I think it'd be layer but we try to manage between the between our work our job and the the kids in the sport of the kids and they're all more of the kids and so it's kind of a different organization in different schedule every day but we always need to find a solution. Find a way to do it. So yeah if a bit of a routine at the moment so the first thing. I wanted to do and you wanted to do with. My wife was assured to create structure and routine because Fischetti for the kids when they don at school begins leave. They can wake up and do the Descru- anytime so we keep on putting the clock for sure. Every morning we wake up and then we all know more like at nine. We started more thirty nine. We stopped homework. You know so we. We keep routines this even. If it's a bit more we are just a little bit more for sure that we put routine every day. The do some some spoilt. We tried to go outside a little bit to move. Yeah we try to really create Routines like this. We share more time with them if if we can for sure but definitively the fact two creeks tributaries There's no rolling become a bit of a mess inside the house. I think it's important especially if if it's one week it's okay like only days or two weeks but for the moment now we are ten day was gonna be full five six weeks so and we don't know so. How many days does it take you to discover you needed to retain yes? She's they want. We said we need to keep the structure that that's growing born on. We not to to strike structure would say but it's not because you are not me new late at the. It's not like when you go to school for sure but still too great routine. It's super important. Yeah for sure. And we take the sun when the sun is out we tried to descend for sure. So yeah it's kind of different kind of ribbon but we still receive tried to put structure every day. That's important yeah. That's really interesting. Only yesterday. They there were a few days behind you a good few days but only yesterday discovered myself that I sort of found my routine. I just I didn't want to write down and say this would have to do. I just have to find it. A bit. Natural. On yesterday was yeah. I stay where I felt a bit more. Okay well like it open to more than I do a bit. A worked and our baby gets up. We all get breakfast together. Then I do some exercise and then do bit more work than we go for. Walks does a bit. It took a few days for me to find a national retain which I think I have. Now which is great but yeah so some people are different crates that you knew straight away. Look we need routine here especially the kids are a bit older full of energy and e and this and and even in the week we tried to keep the we try to keep the weeks as they normally have for example. The weekend we try to get their homework because the weekend they don't work so said we tried even in the week two because if not you don't noise it's Monday or Tuesday or Sunday or your little bit. Less old days are the same so we tried to the same like today's like school We keep on working and then when he's the weekend it's bit more fund. I mean we try to make it a bit more fun. Actually for the moment we had to leave only one weekend. So is this the beginning? But because I think it's important to create the structure to because we really have to think on term process and it's good the first week you know it's nice. We'll do this with that then. Let's see in four five weeks. That's a different storm and I think it's important not to create boring routines. But in the same times to create structure I would say Craig's born really good electing a bit of exercise yourself like some Ronin. How I know it's Day ten. How have you done any exercise? Have you dealt with it? Yeah Yeah I have the chance to have a trainer at home so I can bike. That's good end in the sometimes. We allowed to go outside no more than one hour but I can still go and little bit but my main goal at the moment is not really trying to improve on anything is just to keep heads and keeping shape. I would say but I know I'm not gonNA try to be like overtrained during those moment is. Just keep the shake. That's my it for me. That's nine Mongolia. Yeah I think that's a mango for a lot of people just trying to maintain where they're not to gain weight not to gain like what about. We did have some food tips on functional tennis during the week for me. The tree food tips were worn. Was you're using less energy? So eat less. Make your mail.

Buy less junk food so just put them in places where you don't normally look on tree was have a could off time at nighttime we stop beating because a lot of people eat junk food late at night on if you say okay after seven thirty. We don't eat so do you have any tips. Who What would be your one main. Eaten tip that you could tell us the ad because I mean I for sure I still Tommy steps. I do a day and the day that I don't do too much around five thousand steps a day and when I do I go to ten twelve thirteen thousand steps which is not a lot more like fifteen to twenty thousand steps. When a big. When I moving my day you know normal day so for sure. Our consumption analogy is is divided nearly by to every day. So it's kind of meeks for me. The nutrition of finding a balance between for sure not gaining weight and nuts. Having the junk food for sure but in a send times. Winnie the human sustained to be strong too so five to go on. Diet for me would be a mistake because we need to have the human system at the top so for sure to keep the freight veges fruits. It's really something important. Keep a little bit the carbs. I mean again. The structuring the Lille having like a breakfast person abby like breakfast lunch snack dinner for sure to make everything a little bit lighter than no more. Bettina sometimes to have like a certain amount of food and energy because we need to knock to store but we need to have the human system important that the bottle I think. The fruits and vegetables are important. Keep the immune system and the three important. Maybe we just need to buy smaller plates. Yeah for sure this this The food is really like nuts because we all need to disclose to all the time so it's really not to have that kind of reflects or go at grab it. Is things things. So that's important just to keep the structure again. That's super important for me to structure structure structure. Okay well enough about Kobe. Nineteen at the moment. Tell me your physical trainer to some great tennis players. Dmitrov worked with other players which I find out about. How did you get into personal training before that? Did you play tennis as a kid?

"So Susan. Welcome to the show. Firstly a big thank-you. It's good to be really great chat. We have today so once again. A massive thank you. I think what I like to start wave is if you could give us a bit of a background to yourself and your experience on the Muslim conversation as we go home okay well Almond Aren. I have an MBA and also a masters in health science. And I am a certified Yoga teacher for over twenty years. I also have written seven healthy. Living Books Two of them on Yoga and four of them basically on how to get off sugar and CARBS and overall improve your health weight and Diet Amazing. Not Something I definitely want to touch them a lot as well as obviously we know that it can be difficult to stick of change on lifestyles for the better of God's nutrition said now be a strong theme proud podcast. And I'm very interested to hear what you had to sail nuts but I think what I I wanted to touch on really is not obviously from your backyard. It's amazing to hear that you use ronin practice really to get yourself back to being fit and healthy when you came to the age of fifty and I think if you could give all audience a of background as that period of your life and what you went through on the procedures you put in place nursing so fight to help and they'll be very interesting. Okay so our at forty five for forty nine years I had great help and then at the age of fifty. I lost my help. I had ten medical diagnoses in two surgeries and it was all from. It stemmed from an abscessed tooth and oh I had Depression Ovarian cysts hole in my retina. Candida infection of my gut vitamin D low. I mean just one thing. After another and my health declined. The doctors you know. Put me on adrenal fatigue. Vitamins Hormone Green this that the other they did the two surgeries and then they were like. Um You know that's all we could do for you so I started looking nurse and start looking at a different alternative methods tried acupuncture massage but the one that was effective was I had a colonic. Irrigation which is like a royal enema because my stools changed after they had put me on antibiotics and steroids. When I had my emergency root ca now and the colonic therapists found that I had a candida infection of my call. One and Candida is a yeast and it grows up normally a pencil in on our body but when you take antibiotics that kills the good guys. You're good gut buddies probiotics and you got in. It allows the bad guys to take over. And some of those bad guys could lead to an auto immune disease it could lead to leaky gut and then for me at led to a candida infection. I went to my internal medicine doctor and he did not know how to treat a candida infection. I had to research on my own to figure it out. You have to Candida loves sugar. Carbs refined carbohydrates and alcoholic beverages at loves the sugar. It takes over your appetite and so you have to. You have to start it and you starve it by going on an anti candied diet. Cutting out all the white sugar white flour white rice even fruits. I had to do that for eight months. Go on a candy to cleanse and then I finally got my house back. It's amazing NASA you. You obviously had versa had led up so you really in the Youtube your health back on track and then obviously you did manage to discover a away technique to to actually nurse yourself to health. Did you struggle? With the first eight months of presumed there was a sort of a transition period. Where you're cutting out all of these processed foods and your body is craving them. Can't SIP is very hard. It took a a lot of self control and and I would take. I'd have one good day and then I'd have three bad days and then I had two good days and I'd had one bad too. You know it was like three baptist. You just don't know if you're ever GONNA get your help back if you're ever going to feel good again so you know my heart was just you know compassionate to others. And that's why I wrote of the book seven steps to get off sugar and carbohydrates because I know how difficult it is to fight those cravings. Yes I think we all really do. They win how a new particularly having to completely strip the mouth yacht. What clicks view. Then that allowed you to go from this Yoyo period of maybe being good for one two days and then having a bad day to actually having sustainable change to your your lifestyle and your attrition in your approach to the foods you intake well you know I did not realize how wonderful it was to be healthy until I lost my house. I lost my health. I was like I'll do anything to get this back in once I gained knowledge and I understood what was taking over my appetite. Then it was like okay. I've got this basically you know this bad back bad yeast and my God. I'M GONNA kill that guy and I'm going to get my life back so you have to figure out the root cause of your problem and then gain knowledge to be able to turn things around and so I created a quiz for people to see if they do have candied infection of their of their guts called Candy Quiz. Dot Com and candy is spelled C. A. N. D. I. Quiz Dot COM view foulland than the record. Obviously it does divert but depending on the person but what's through 'cause you found for the majority of people is it's a lack of knowledge. Is it that? There's on that half that half and not really not one hundred ten percent into it is it because they're not realizing the why of how wiser important to be healthy while you hit it on the nail with the lack of knowledge you know because okay it used to be the low fat diet was the style and now it's the Kito Diet and they're totally opposite in which one is right. Yes so you've got you've got to go to a great resource so I'm an R. N. I have a masters in health and who who looks at the research articles to figure out what is the right way to eat and it's basically back to the garden back to the garden the farm the ranch. You want things to look like they did. When it came out of the garden so number one was lack of knowledge. Number two was like me a Candida and action the third root cause for potential. We not eating appropriately or while is an addiction a sugar addiction. Because sugar and wheat go up to like the brain receptors in our brain. That are the same ones that opiate drugs. Goto so they've done. Mri Imaging and somebody who Um has a food addiction can look at food in those same areas light up in the MRI as they do for a cocaine addict so if you gain knowledge and understand okay. I have food addiction. Then you can say you know what I can use other tactics to release that. Feel good neuro hormone from my brain which is dopamine. I can walk. I can do yoga. I can meditate. I can Hug My kids I can pet my dogs. There's so many ways to get out there and get those endorphins released positively instead of through food definitely thing exercise. You've mentioned on for them. Is it such important one nuts? You really do. Not necessarily you are exercising but the feeling awkward. When you're to release it does really give you a rush a therapeutic feelings. I think that's a you've hit the nail on the head as well. Yes send you see once you gain the knowledge and I have a link in my book where you can go and take tests to see if you do have a food addiction and yet once you understand like I understood that I had to fight the Candida. You get to. The root cause will then. It's not a matter of self control. It's a matter of curing the root cause and when she cured that then you can get your normal appetite pack and happier self control so the the fourth reason was an emotional connection with food in many of us do have an emotional connection with food. And you know we may stuff our emotions with food. stuff our anger or hole in her art. We have unforgiveness resentment or whatever it may be and so. I haven't area my book about cleaning out your emotion

Top 10 Performers of the 2010s

"Actually I am kind of I write poetry Snow Book Secret Notebook or your poet. Yeah that's great but you like to hear what sure sure it doesn't really Ryan though. Okay kind of like him better when they don't me to all right so we've heard your number ten. We've heard my number six Adam driver. Who's your number nine performer? The decade? Okay boy this hurts me because it wasn't too long ago I was asking if this was the best actress of the twenty tens and I still think she's in the conversation but Elizabeth Moss. When I sat down to do this list fell down to number nine okay and I think for me. It's it's partly again. I'm backing into the list here. It's partly because her strongest work was on television. I don't know if it's fair. We're a film show so I'M GONNA hold that. It's not fair okay. It probably isn't yet to discount the handmaiden and madman but you're right if you include those. Then how is she? Not One of the performance of the Dick and Jane campion's crime series top of the lake. Yeah so so you know those three works alone in her work in them specifically I mean madman. I made the argument. She's as crucial to that series. Almost as crucial. Let's say Don Draper. She was the lead in in Top of the lake in the lead the handmaid's tale but I look back at the big screen to and The one I love I think great in. I know you love the film more than Me Adam but the collaboration with Alex. Ross Perry's Ben. My favorite thing about those including are probably hurt toured force performance of the last. Ten years is in her smile. I think just from last year and then yeah squeezing in that great supporting part in US last year as well getting to show her comic chops I had to keep her on this list but when I started comparing her to the filmography we're going to get to higher up. Yeah I couldn't put up there at the very top. Yes same process with me. Though she slipped a little further I did begin by ranking top ten actresses top ten actors then figured out how to merge them and go made the cut. I Have Elizabeth Moss in my six through ten actresses but did not make my top ten overall. My number ten is an actress. And this is one where you could accuse me Josh of maybe looking ahead a little too much but I think the foundation of great work in this decade is also there. She is the only other one that woman I'm about to mention. She's the only other one with driver who feels to me like locks. We could already pencil them in for when we're doing this list in ten years okay. We're GONNA look back on the twenty twenties and go. Of course. This was the decade of Adam driver and of Sir Sha Ronin the three great performances come in Brooklyn in Lady Bird and of course last year in Greta. Gerwig 's little women and there's two great films there for me all time great films frankly in Lady Bird and little women. I'm less high on Brooklyn though I like Brooklyn quite a bit and I really do think. It's a wonderful performance from her. She also appears of course in Wes. Anderson's Grand Budapest hotel and I really liked her in Joe. Wright's Hannah for me. Ronin is the insistent innocent. There is some naievety about her. As you look at those performances Brooklyn ladybird little women but really just a lack of experience. There's the census. She still has a lot to learn about herself and about the world and relationships. She's going to make mistakes. She's GonNa make a fool of herself but that's because she's always going to put herself on the line there is a determination and there's a voracious nece to Ronin characters that I find really appealing. I was looking back at my notes from our review of Lady Bird and I mentioned the way she just kind of burns with this intensity and this focus. It's almost like she's from another planet in the way she talks and the way she studying the people she's engaging with there is this provocation that is inherent to the lady bird character where she's just so eager to expand her knowledge her base of knowledge. It seems like that's what she's after in every encounter in life and maybe more than anything. Josh the reason why I wanted to make sure I fit. Ronin on this list is I just want to continue to put out into the universe. This idea that I did see floating around social media after a recent Hollywood reporter with Ronin and Greta Gerwig where they talk about future collaborations with each other. And there's a great question by the interviewer posed to Gerwig about working with Ronan and differences in working with her now versus lady bird and I thought Gerg's answer was really instructive. She says it's the benefit of working with someone you've worked with before. I felt like in some ways I had conceived lady bird before I knew she was playing it and I'd written drafts of little women before I knew she was playing it but I don't know any other way to say it. Except she was an author of Lady Bird but even more so she was an author of little women. I felt like she knew exactly what we were making the whole time as a filmmaker as much as an actor she really became a second director for me. It was like an extension of every thought. I had she'd walk out in another step. I think honestly the closest I've had to it is writing. With Noah Noah Baumbach who is her partner. But that's fitting of. Gerwig I think in her personality that she so generous in giving Ronin all that credit as an artistic collaborator but I think it speaks to the intelligence and again that voracious nece that comes through in her character's it's probably embedded within ronin herself. That made her such a good collaborator with Gerwig. And the key line from this is Gerwig saying I'm interested to see what movie we make when searches in her fifties. And I'm in my sixties. WoN'T THAT BE INTERESTING? And I'm thinking that's great but I want to see the movie that you make together when searches in her thirties when searches in her forties. I can't wait until the fifties I would be perfectly content of those to just continue to make movies together until the end of time. So Sir Sharon did just sneak onto my list ten. Hey I like your band with Jona rubies. Len Fans knew awesome.

"The judge and the and the Slavers Bay was cool was good most mine and the speed ramp where he kicks in here is every time slavers show up anytime they did. They want to see him die. I think they only did the slow mode. Think twice it was dumb when they did it both times. Yeah I agree that into it but I think that's a tough one to do well The attack of the castle at the end. I thought that was like a cool. I was really fun. I love it as underwhelming. I can't it was hard to find what's going on. I love. I loved it. I loved when the when the fights he was happening. I was I wrote down where the Monster Dragon at the very very amounts of data better than John. Snow's fight scene. Where the I love when the a four guards on top of the Ridge and they jumped up and then took the helmets and threw them off the back. And then that's a cool concept. Yeah I would've loved that for the beginning of the movie stars. I said I like a three three and a half. I just feel like the visuals of it. There were a lot of fun scenes and I agree. Just put it on. I also think every I highly suggest people just put on Weird Sword fighting movies and turn the sound off and just let that roll time Chinese Super Ninjas again maybe Ninjas are Japanese concept. Yes he's Chinese super. Ninjas is a China's Kung Fu movie soared since other high masters steal the Ninjas the Ninja way of Japan and they bring it to China and they start taking over China Super Ninjas look it up it's amazing. It actually sounds like one of my favorite bad movies challenge of the Lady Ninja. You GotTa have a. We have to have come from you. Said it literally has star wars music in it that they ripped off and used the tagline for the movie is these women are more deadly than men. You've seen jellies black mask right now. So jellies mass. They use the they use sound effects. So it's like people like the the X ray laser sounds except for he's like blowing beams eligible lady Ninja. There's a part where Ninjas breaking into someone's house and you see him running and you hear the footsteps and he does a role in the footsteps keep going. They were real to reel. It's hard to. It's hard to edit that millions so much time anyway rating. I was wondering if anyone's GonNa ask me. Keep going so. We don't really care okay. So Adam said that if you want your kion ooh sauce that you should go to John. Wick hated or something. Well I'm going to say if you want the Kiana sauce. Just go right to the Kano Dick. I personally am not a big John Wayne Fan. I where's your Dick out? Where do you hide it? I WanNa like John Wick but when I watch it it feels like watching someone do a speed run on a video game through the roof shoots. Three people runs into the next room. And I'm like no come on whereas we're the monsters. What's that movie with Clive? Owen were? That's literally really the whole moves. Shoot him shoot him up and I felt like I thought it was. I thought it was a better movie because there was more plot to the John. Woo Films in the shoot. 'em UP which goes right like it isn't the plot with John. Wake my plot. My problem is is that all the action scenes feel like someone rushing through every action scene as quickly as they can't pacing. Yeah I thought that was it's going to be. I'm not saying I'm not saying that you're wrong for liking in the movie. I'm just saying it's not my ideal forty seven Ronin rating. Would you recommend it as a bad movie? Forty seven Ronin forty seven fucking Romans. I give them war monsters. One Star One star you give no gardens the highlands even give it a stark. I'm not sure by the way Amanda Amanda Guards. The highlands of more than chain-reaction So like Guardian. I never watched movie at one and a half time speed. Watch at least half of this movie at one and a half and like what stuck out to be the entire watching that speed was that the only part could tell when it was that it was at one time speed is when people were walking or running and it looks kind of funny for the rest of all these really slow panning shots that are still incredibly slow one and a half speed people just looking at each other for five seconds. And you're like I know that supposed to be eight seconds. Yeah I mean. I almost did not complete watching this movie. I watched the last twenty minutes of it right before Kris showed up. He knocked on the door right as the credit started. Rolling in time speed. I would say that the pacing please. Oh I just have one more note which was that. I would never pirate a movie but if I did. I would've had a really hard time pirating. This movie there would not have been enough cedars at is want to give this tip out to the heads out there if you ever. WanNa find a shitty movie like this instead of looking on websites. Google for one word index of and the title of the movie in quotes. And you'll find a bunch of unsecured media servers where you can get your shitty movie for. If you were to do that. Dumb geeks would never say the you should do that. You know we all terrible tip. But I didn't know about legally rented this movie. Yeah I definitely I spent four dollars and I just you know what I like to do. The index of search just to see all these pieces shit out there. Yeah who would? Who would not secure their servers and pirates. Those guys digital hoarder hose. You know yeah wouldn't know anything about that. Yeah I've never heard of personally. At least seventy five percent of my income goes directly to renting movies on Amazon. Yeah why wouldn't you? Those grey makes guys well. I think that anything anything else guys on. Add a big boxes DOT com today. So Adam of you. A last month texted me something that I thought I'd share because Adams here and I was reminded of it. It's called the veloce. The Velocity Predator Philosophy Predator was that he pronounced awesome Predator. Veloce predators came across this on probably read. It also heard about veloce. Let me say let me just read the synopsis. After losing his parents a priest travels to China where he inherited a mysterious ability that allows him to turn into a dinosaur. I horrified by his new power. A prostitute convinced him to use it to fight crime and Inge's veloce pastor pathway of Veloce pitas though was that it's a fast centipedes. A child's tricycle makes sense okay philosophy. It's actually a specific type of early bicycle but it the mechanics are the same way. That child's tries it. If you really like it or you have a loss of paedophile anyways anyways. It just looks like the kind of movie that after. Kion or wary. We should try to watch. I feel like after we should take at least a month off. I agree and also I feel like that movie. Looks like the man who killed bigfoot and Sasquatch or whatever the fuck that one moving good they're not. I don't think it's going to be good. I think I think it's a good synopsis. Great maybe to work on but I still yeah. I I think you should close out with that movie where the Vagina has the teeth from the seventies. Oh that's really good. That's comedy seventies said. No it's not from the seventies it takes place in the seventies teeth has a lot of community that one does there. There is a movie. That teeth is a ariffin. Teeth is not a very good old movie from the seventies or eighties. And it's about a similar concept so really I mean vagina goes back to the ancient Greek. I was just. It's been a concert on for a while. I was just kind of find the name of that old movie. I literally can't even find it in Google Vagina teeth. Nineteen seventy ending. Come up I did not put all this stuff I also when we do another movie definitely one of the ones coming up. We'll be tiptoes of movie. Where Gary Oldman should we give it away? Has the performance of a lifetime. Oscar award-winning before but it's ten. We showed you the trailer and I told you not to read anything about it before you watched it anybody. If you're listening to this look up tiptoes on Youtube. Watch out. It's mind blowing. I yelled aloud a couple of times so insane. It's so what the problem is with that movies at. The only problem with that movie is that the name is bad. Like doesn't feel like it goes with the subject. He's the first three letters are fucking horse shit anyway from nine hundred eighty game the first three letters that name tiptoe. Yeah tip it's Joe. That's your name Lady Terminator. And it's from eighty eight. Sorry not really GonNa have to check that one out because love you should if you can remember. Look up the the trailer for the movie tiptoe. Everybody's listening look if you're still listening because we've been rambling at the end of this worldwide. One's here still people will listen to anything. Here's Cada high forty six will thanks for listening. We're out hello got him so dumb. I can't even think of true role. Play that's fine Gael. We're all being pegged at home.

Oscars 2020: who will have the biggest night?

"Are the Oscars are this weekend who are you rooting for anybody on your list I like once upon a time in Hollywood I just thought that was a great film I love the cast awesome stuff several nominations for that film bills worker is joining us now long time energy reporter for the sun times still with five Chicago is a contributor and bill has followed many many many Oscars lot but you know I always loved about you bill you you follow the local entertainment scene so well and always told us such interesting nuggets about what was going on here well that's true I've always loved you know I mean I think that's important I think it as we all know how they moved in this world of of the current the twenty first century media I think local local local is the way to cope in general because I think that's what people really want to get because they can get you know the national stories from other outlets but but this is an interesting year at all well it's always interesting with the Academy Awards although I do think in certain categories is here there's there's some things that are pretty well said but I know we think of course they're going to go again this year without it without a without a whole list which I don't think it's a terrible thing I think you know well I'll tell you why I think so often unless you get somebody like Billy crystal who's always knocks the you know the ball out of the park I think over the years I think will be colder did a good job we recently had our critic's guide Bible to the critics choice awards which of the broadcast broadcast critics and you know we had two days he did a wonderful job and I think because he didn't try to overdo it you know came out was charming and didn't you know try to be too cute but I think sometimes I think people want to see who's going to win they want to see the presenters I don't think they want a lot of big production numbers and all those give me some wonderful musical numbers at the Oscars you know your health Elton John performing in and you know it's gonna be really quite quite wonderful in the court system the result of a few people who really are talented musically but it's gonna be interesting to see what happens on Sunday I can say I disagree too but I'd like the host I guess you're right but what okay what is a good host was a good house because right some of the host I kind of remember the Anne Hathaway that was a disaster and as much as I loved you know but she yeah I do too but she what that wasn't right for her at all and James Franco I think the the combo wasn't right and that yeah then they tried to do so many acts that an already long ceremony got longer and longer right letterman was not successful either you know so I mean and and I love him but I mean I just it's just a very tough job I will say that so I think sometimes a safe way to go is with out the host and we'll see how it goes David Letterman wasn't wanted the Oprah uma uma Oprah right rumors were rolling their eyes he's like I got to go and I got a key thing is we we didn't work we actually have some audio here from Billy crystal because he was just on Jimmy Kimmel okay crystal has hosted the Oscars I think nine times total nine times jingle himself is hosted the Oscars twice yes yeah he did a good job he did so the two of them had thoughts about the hostess Oscars here's here's what they had to say I always loved being out there I I loved the guess the trusts you know that the movie academy had a made to to get me out that I always I felt like there was a great honor to do it and I think that when you have a show that's as long as it is is going to happen and I think the problem with the no hosting perhaps is that there's not somebody out there to capitalize on that moment ledge view had when the wrong Best Picture right who could forget that the one that's right but he does make a good point there he does make a good point that you can can bring it into the moment and and capitalize on it that is a very good point I hadn't thought of that someone says something that you can sort of have fun with right that just sort of right out there and then they bring it back and make everybody sort of laugher connect over that moment we just had a listener say six three oh what about the la la land fiasco that would be weird without a host because sort of look at each other like what that would that would have been terrible and and then on a lighter note I mean it's great when you have somebody you know when when Jack Palance remember that the one arm push up you know on the sages many years ago and of course and you know Billy came out and made a great joke about it because you know those are the things that you love love to see happen yeah my favorite also I think was on my list of favorites I should say Ellen DeGeneres remember that a normal than the selfie she took and then when she was busting Steven Spielberg around a telephone tell take the picture you know when I could change my point of view you're either going to go maybe on your side your honor but you know I heard you it coming in when you talk about once upon a time in Hollywood that really was one of my favorite favorite movies of the year I see like bill if this one is sort of got a little bit of an unfair advantage because it seems like one of those movies that people in the industry natural sort of are drawn to because it has history of historical factor I know it's sort of a bag I would love to see it with but it's it's one of my favorite but I think all of the momentum seems to be from the directors guild of the producers guild all of the different wards have been happened sounds like it's going to be nineteen seventeen which I liked very much but technically it had some incredible you know incredible beautiful moments but my favorite if I was going to pick one it would be once upon a time in Hollywood or parasite which of course is going to win trust me it's gonna win best foreign film the people that are further further Oscar parties if they want to fill out there if you get if you get some of those lesser known categories right you can win the Oscar Poole I've no I bet it's true that's a good strategy that's true yes I have eight one five Oscars praying for no politics I need a break yeah what do you think we all do I think we all do and I think that will be that's one thing that I hope we do have because I think after what we've all gone through in this country in the last few weeks I think yes no politics is a very good suggestion but it's interesting because in terms of all the acting categories I think they're pretty well locked into a whole I think it is going to win and I think most people do what do you think what you got for best supporting actress I think well that's what the one category where there could be a surprise in the usually is a surprise the one category excuse me would be best supporting actress because even though most people think it's gonna be Laura Dern was terrific as a divorce lawyer in marriage story you know who could possibly slip in there because he has won a few things as far as people from little women who played one of the daughters and that's one category but I do think it's gonna be Laura Dern for best Supporting Actor it's Brad Pitt as one everything is beloved by many people in Hollywood you know it's sort of his his year in his time and I think that's a pretty much of a lock in for Best Actress it's it's I think pretty much going to be Renee Zellweger for Judy plank Judy Garland and although I would look I would be disappointed if there was a real real upset here in Jersey ronin from little women one because I think she's terrific but they're all these categories have great nominees and of course for Best Actor again it's probably going to be Joaquin Phoenix because again he won everything so far incredible performance I didn't see G. R. A. Renee Zellweger in Judy but I didn't know that that was not universally loved by critics no it was not what happened there was everybody pretty much loved her I mean I agree with this the movie itself was just sort of you know just so so I think the reason she's basically the nominee the only nominee for that movie there may be a cost and it might be a minor on the minor categories I shouldn't call minor but one of the most popular categories but the movie itself was not great she was what made the movie yeah I you know I I didn't see that because of sort of the reviews the main one that would be worth revisiting because I loved her and that was the online series where she was the rich woman who is trying to convince people a little comes of age is he was a recent series streaming and she was phenomenal and I just remember and she sings herself I mean the fact that she you know somebody's like a voice like garland which everybody knows so well the fact that you do your own singing I think is also a major push any and there's so many scenes in this movie you look and you think it's actually Judy Garland on stage and screen excuse me so I think it's and that's pretty much of a lock but there again you know you never that's pictures that that was one I mean I think it's probably going to be nineteen seventeen but I would be happy with virtually any of those you know that are up there there's nine nominees you know because they changed the rules a few years ago but you know a lot of talk this year the parasite which definitely is gonna win best foreign film it might be the first year that the best foreign film also wins Best Picture that would be somewhat of an upset but that would be a fascinating thing to see what is the Netflix series that Renee Zellweger was and I was trying to remember to remember bill out we only have a minute here but if you if you are going to the movies this weekend as I know some people do when they try to say Hey I'm gonna catch up on some of these Oscar nominated films what what was one of the films you would suggest the probably not many people have gone to I think I don't know I think first of all I think you know probably nineteen seventeen I think it's it's a kind of a tough movie to watch many ways but I think that that that seems to be the front runner for Best Picture if you haven't seen once upon a time in Hollywood definitely catch that and I'll tell you a parasite is be the third one because that is such it's got a real twist to it I can't tell you much and I would give it away but it that would be the film that is probably the one most unique dark comedy that come down the pike in a long time okay you got my attention on that I'm gonna check that one out bills record thank you so much for checking in with us at any time good to hear your voice same

Popcorn with Peter Travers

Oscars 2020 Preview

"HI everybody. It's Peter Travers. Here here with this special edition of Popcorn which we're calling the Oscar popcorn because this weekend on February ninth exactly everybody will be watching. Being the Oscar telecast on ABC and probably having their own little ballot. Like I have here trying to figure out who's going to win this damn thing and if the person I don't like winds pushed I put my money on. That's what really happens. That's what people ask me on the street. So I'm GonNa take you through these main categories and and we'll see what will win what should win and we can argue. You can find me somewhere and we can argue about it. But I'm going to start with with best supporting actress. Because that's how the Academy Awards those that's always the first award that we say Kathy Bates in Richard Jewel. Laura dern in marriage in story Scarlett Johansson in Joe Rabbit Florence Pew in Little Women and Margot Robbie in bombshell so look. There's it's a lot of good people here and I have to say right at the outset. That Scarlett Johansson is one of those rare actors that has a nomination as best actress. Chris and best supporting actress marriage story for Best Actress in here supporting which usually gets you to win one and that usually that it's usually that one but it's it's not going to happen you know I'm sitting here saying did I read wrong. What happened to Jennifer Lopez and hustlers? Hasn't she been in this game since the release Lisa Hustler she has and yet the academy you bad people have decided that J.. Lo just wasn't Oscar material while you're wrong but look we we have to deal with rats here and I'm going to say that the person who will win in this category is also the person who should win. And that is Laura Burn and Laura dern in marriage story plays a divorce lawyer and she's a tough one and let's think of all the Hollywood people that are voting for this award and how every single one of them I'll wager. A BET has their own divorce lawyer and has been through this process. Maybe more than once. Maybe two we're three times to do it. And they find Laura Dern Dunn's in this movie something spectacular it's also one of the few awards. I think that marriage story story is going to win. But Laura Dern has never won an Oscar. This will be her first time. Everyone loves her. We all love and big little lies and I think this is her time on so let her have it all right. I'm moving onto best supporting actor. Tom Hanks in a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Anthony Hopkins in the two popes Al Al Pacino in the Irishman Joe Pesci in the Irishman and Brad Pitt in once upon a time in Hollywood. Look you're talking to a big Irishman fan here so if it was me saying come up for the gold it would be Joe. Patchy I know Joe Pesci doesn't do any publicity. He basically sticks fix to himself. He's probably tough guy in real life as the gangster that he plays in the Irishman but that performance is amazing and won won his first Oscar for another score says he movie goodfellas where he was the most scary gangster. You can see here. He's kind of quiet dawn. So if I'm I'm giving them it would be Joe Patchy but the academy is giving this award and no one. No one can win. This except Brad Pitt. These other people here Tom Hanks Anthony Hopkins Al Pacino and Peci all have won Oscars so they already have the gold. Do you realize his full career. Brad Brad Pitt has never won an academy award game over people. This is it Brad. You're going to get in once upon a time in Hollywood playing a stuntman. It man playing somebody who's been around the business. I think it's irresistible for Hollywood to say I'm going to reject one of my own. Plus he was great in the movie. You seem to hear my voice that I have a little bit of a problem. Yeah I do. Because that's not a supporting performance at all that his part is the equal who of his Co Star Leonardo DiCaprio's WHO's nominated for best actor. So why is he in that category. I think they want to win. And Brad you might as well prepare repair your speech right now okay. I am now moving onto best actress. Cynthia Haribo in Harriet Scarlett Johansson in marriage story. Sir Sharon in little women. Charlie's Sharon in bombshell and Renee Zellweger in Judy. What Best S. actress award so far from the Golden Globes to the critics choice awards has it Renee Zellweger one? She's won all of them. So is there any possibility ability here for something else. I mean. Look what Charlie. Stern did in bombshell. She not only plays Megan Kelly. The makeup geniuses have made her look exactly exactly like her and Charlie's has talked exactly like are they love bio pics there so she should be really strong. Social Ronin is like twenty five years old. She's he's on her fourth Oscar nomination. This is incredible and Scarlett Johansson. Like I said nominated for best. Supporting actress and Best Actress. Cynthia revolt is playing Harry Tubman and she also wrote the song from the movie which is nominated. That happened to somebody last year. Didn't it yes it was lady. Eating Gaga Lady Gaga was nominated for writing that wonderful song from stars born and his best actress. But what did you win. She won best song and that was it so I have to say that again. I would give this award person late to search for Ronin just because I think to be that young and to be that consistently brilliant is amazing and her performance in little women. Is that good. But it's Rene as I talk about. How Hollywood would love bio-pics this is? Judy Garland that she's playing judy. This is one of their own. Did they ever give. Judy Garland her own Oscar Competitive Competitive Acting Oscar. Never and I think for that reason not only will renee Zellweger win best actress but she will win for Oscar. Judy Garland on never had. It's their way of saying Judy. We love you. We were so stupid not to give it to you. And we're going to give it to Rene in honor of you. This is how Hollywood works. It's really crazy. But if you're betting on this you have to bet crazy. Aright best actor Antonio Banderas in pain and gory. Leonardo di Caprio in once upon a time in Hollywood Adam driver in marriage story what came Phoenix and joker and Jonathan Pryce in the two popes. I look at this category and before I get into. Who Will Win and who should win? I've I've got to say academy what you have against Comedians. And what do you have against Eddie Murphy. That he's not nominated for Dole. Might as my name what you have against Adam Sandler who proved his dramatic chops in uncut gems. Like nobody can believe and yet they have it they only like to give Oscars to actors serious actors who played comic roles. Ause they hate anybody who's making a living as a comic to actually win this war so this year's been going along I've had this feeling that this was Adam drivers to lose that performance in marriage story is one of the best things he's ever done or that I've seen this year and yet there's this other guy and who's that other guy he's Joaquin Phoenix plane joker. Sometimes there's that kind of performance sometimes. There's there's one that just so dominates the screen. That is such an act of immersion of from an actor in a raw. Yeah Joaquin was scary. He was sometimes funny. He was always touching even though he's playing somebody who's totally out of his mind and a lot of this movie his in his mind. What Cain has been nominated several times before and never one Joaquin? This is yours. I can't believe any set of circumstances. Stances if you WANNA bet the whole house on something and somebody to win it's going to be Joaquin Phoenix as best actor for joker game over all right. We're ready now to move on. I'm going to best director now. This is one of the most exciting categories because these people will these particular men and save and because Hollywood as wont of decided that even though there were more women directing movies than ever before four last year. They couldn't find any to nominate which is of course absurd because Greta Gerwig directed little women which is nominated as best picture and they. I thought no I'm just GONNA do five men like we always do what happened. You people sort of learned a couple of years ago when you nominated Greta. GERWIG quick for Ladybird didn't give it to her. But you nominated her. The KADEMI is ninety two years old. Now how many women has given an academy award for directing one. And that's Kathryn Bigelow for hurt locker. Ninety two years one award hang your head in shame name anyway not knocking any of these men that did get nominated. But there's one in there that I would sacrifice for Greta Gerwig but you you try to guess who that is anyway. Here they are. Martin Scorsese the Irishman Todd Phillips. For Joker Sam Mendes for nine thousand nine hundred Seventeen Quentin Tarantino eighteen. O for once upon a time in Hollywood and Bung June hope for parasite every one of these guys you can make a case for. Martin Scorsese Z.. To me is a master the grandmaster who only has one Oscar for directing and then the Irishman is doing some of his best work. Ever Quentin Tarantino. Not No with once upon a time in Hollywood is also a peak form and yet I'm saying this category is going to between two other the directors one of them being the South Korean Vong June Hall for parasite a Foreign Language Film. That seems to have got everybody excited about what's possible and then Sam Mendes for nine hundred seventeen a world war one movie that is constructed to look like it was done in in one continuous. Take how do you resist that. You don't even though I think they would really like to give their best director award worked. Bon John. How it's going to be for Sam Mendes for creating a war movie like no war movie we've ever seen before so sam I think think it's yours but if you're getting out there and you WanNa go to Bung Jun Ho? You know you might do it because there's always a surprise in these contests we can't go. Oh by what the odds are we have to go by sometimes the academy saying I have an instinct for this. I have a feeling this is the right way to go all right last category. Are we ready best picture of the year Ford versus Ferrari the Irishman Joe. Joe Rabbit Joker her little women marriage story nineteen seventeen once upon a time in Hollywood and parasite here is is the one you know every year I do this. It's between one or two movies this year. I can't reduce anything to to the Irishman my estimation a classic one for the ages. Martin Scorsese. Ed Is Best Robert De Niro Pacino. Joe Patchy making a mob movie about old-age age about the end of a mobster. This is the punishment that they get for the lives they live. There's nobody in their lives there alone. It's a tragedy Quentin went and Tarintino. Once upon a time in Hollywood is writing about Hollywood in the sixties and about a time that he thought was the last creative burst of Hollywood Hollywood and doing that. Nineteen seventeen again the World War One movie shot to make it look like. It's one continue steak and parasite a movie about a Korean Rian family in which they exploited the people they work for and then are exploited by the people working for them it is a classic. These are four incredible classics. So what am I gonNA do. What am I going to tell you? What's out there that you have to say? This is the winner and I'm going to go with with all excuses. No excuses in fact to my love for the Irishman. But I think this is the year of Quentin Tarantino. I I think once upon a time in Hollywood being a love letter to Hollywood and being voted on by people who live and work in Hollywood Quentin Tarantino despite right brilliant work with pulp fiction inglorious bastards reservoir dogs Django unchained has never won a Best Picture Oscar or a best director Oscar. Never it's never happened. What better time than now? When he saying Hollywood I love you? I think it's time Hollywood to say to Quentin Tarantino. I love you back back. So you've got it watch the show and afterwards we'll have a discussion.

The Revenge of the 47 Ronin - January 30, 1703

"It's almost better than sports. The stay in history class is production of Heart Radio Harvey One. I'm eve and welcome to this day in history class. A podcast where we dust off a a little piece of history and place. It ever so gently on your shelf every day. Today is January thirtieth twenty twenty. The day was January thirtieth seventeen three a group of forty six Ronin in order Samurai without a master avenge the death of their deceased master by killing kit a Yoshinaga. Though the event occurred on January thirtieth based based on the Western calendar Japan used a lunar calendar at the time according to contemporary dating the event took place in Gin Roku fifteen on the fourteenth day of the twelfth month. This difference in calendars has caused some confusion. Over the date of the event that said the Japanese temple where the Ronin were buried holds a festival commemorating the event every year on December fourteenth during the Tokugawa period which lasted from sixteen. o three to eighteen sixty fifty seven Japan was under the rule of the shogunate or a military government. The shogun or chief military commander ruled in the name of the emperor. Aw Daimyo or feudal lords were vassals of the Shogun though they were limited from gaining too much independent Power Samurai no longer had to engage engage in battle since Japan was at peace but each Daimyo did hire army of Samurai to protect their families and property in Samurai still had Coz Ziff honor and conduct known as Bushido that they abided by Ronin often became masterless because they didn't fulfil their duties because they were defeated in battle or because because they're master fell from power or die if a summarize master died or was deposed the Samurai could choose to serve the new Daimyo but if his master was defeated or killed in battle or if he did not want to transfer his allegiance. The Samurai may choose to die by suicide. Those who chose to live as Ronin often did so in disgrace the story of the forty seven Ronin. One of the most well-known Japanese history began when emperor he got she yama stint imperial envoys from Kyoto to the shoguns court at Eto or present day Tokyo. A high official named Kiyoshi NOCCO was in charge as master master of ceremonies for the visit US Nagano. A daimyo from echo was one of the daimyo assigned to receive the invoice kid s about training meaning him and another Daimyo in court etiquette but kit a allegedly treated poorly possibly because of inexperience or because the presence awesome offered. Weren't good enough either way us. No attacked Kita wasn't hurt badly but awesome knows action was considered a huge huge offence. Arsenault was ordered to die by Seppuku. or a form of ritual suicide by disembowelment after awesome knows death. forty-seven his Samurai right led by OAC Yoshiko toes to become Ronin and seek revenge by killing Kita. They started gathering information on kid has house and they split up taking jobs as laborers in merchants to throw Canada and other shogunate officials off their trail. Oishi began to drink alcohol heavily and frequent Geisha the houses to alleviate suspicions and his agents began to think that the Ronin were harmless but on the night of January thirtieth seventeen o three the forty forty. Seven Ronin Matenaer. Eto One of the Ronin Ten Asaka Ki Ay Mon was sent to a code to announce that the rate on Cuba's mansion was happening. Other accounts of the incident. Say that he left after the battle but on this snowy night the Ronan told kids neighbors of their plans to attack his mansion and and they went forward with their plan after killing and wounding many of Canada's Samurai they found Kira hiding and beheaded him all the Ronin survived the attack back which lasted into the predawn hours of the next morning. They then took it as head to Austin as grave at the Sangha cousy temple and the story of their revenge and spread. The ronin were praised by many for their loyalty and for killing Kibbe.

If you are in town for the day VINCA is capital but not quite city and his best explored by foot. So skip prepaid breakfast and stride out while it's still OKU head towards town of Park and the French Bakery Annabel's for fresh course on tropical jazz. The bread is also some the best in town.

Coffee shops have recently opened in the capital to tap into the beans so mid morning. This could be our next stop. I recommend the trail opposite. non-food founded did. It is one of the old time players roasting and grinding their own beans and serving up an excellent brew however common ground. Next Expresso and thirty five millimeter Peter also deserving of mention next on lunch the low Asian rice noodle soup is popular midday option for Viennese. Each each really will serve up their own tapes but my favorite is no food restaurant. Don Plan Road it specializes in thicker slightly chewier noodle talk with braised raise. Beef wants to supervise. It becomes a blank canvas and the assortment sauces condiments and fresh herbs positioned on your table. Come into play for me. Always a big squeeze of Lawn Todd Basel on a heat to spoon of dried Chili. But if you're not feeding hot lunch the heads the Vietnamese restaurant. It was a great man for the fresh.

"Let's take a look at I. Guess the mandatory series win. You got done watching it. I guess. How overall satisfied were you with it up and down for you like this episode was good? But this episode is kind of a Dud. What what was your first impression as a whole I think I'd dug the whole the whole series whole a few more times? I really dug it from beginning to end when it was down it was still great. Its lowest points were still pretty high points. Okay overall. I really dug it but I also have like a huge love of Westerns and Samurai movies. And this kind of felt like it kind of felt like a way for star wars to play in a new sandbox. It felt very reminiscent of the original trilogy while also managing to kind of have its identity. Yes okay segues is into a good point. I noticed right away on the series the simple things like the fades from scene to scene. Where the same little you'll circular fades aides or sideswipe fades from? Yeah from you hope. You cannot do that when I graduated from film school. One of one of the things they told us in in film school is don't ever do that. It looks it looks amateur. It looks bad. Really for whatever reason star wars can do it and the reason they the reason they can do it is because they just kind of did it at a time when they were defining what Star Wars. This is so when episode four came out or Star Wars or the original movie nineteen seventy seven when that came out already visually. It was so distinct and so oh very specifically star wars that it can incorporate silly things like a like a cross dissolve across fade or a circle Michael Fade or whatever you wanNA call them It can do that because it is star wars and and if you saw that if you went to go watch the avengers and and you see that really slow white from the right side of the screen to the left side of the screen to transition. It would look very out of place in Lynn very artificial because because that's not part of cinema language but it is a part of Star Wars language and incorporating that into the man. delorean was something. I've thought was incredibly smart. Yes you actually see that in things like Djeddai Fallen Order And a lot of video games as well. Okay we'll incorporate that in the cut scenes it just it's A. It's an easy visual indicator that this is star wars I love that when I saw that on the very episode. That was one of the simple simple fan services that the what other fans services or things did you see that Cairo. I the main thing. The first first thing I saw for sure was was the rifle and everybody talks about the right okay but it deserves to be talked about talking about man. Does the knife owned the mandatory rifle. Yeah it's It's it's kind of like a long rifle with a tuning fork. Yes that was Boba Fett rifle in the holiday special which is the infamous holiday special which I've seen and it is as bad as everybody says and it's not like it's not like a challenge to go watch it do do not watch it. Don't and watch it. It's not it's not even worth laughing at. It's it's so hard to watch but In the BLU ray release of the Star Wars The star awards box set episodes one through six on the bonus disc. There's actually an Easter egg on their. That has the entire animated segment from the holiday special. Yes so you can actually see that and it's really cool but in that segment it's very much like a Ralph Bakshi inspired character design. It's really Kinda cool but you do see Z.. BOBA FETT teaming up with Luke at first and then he betrays him but he's got this weird rifle that should never ever work and everybody thought it was a cool looking rifle. I never thought we'd seen it and live action. Let alone we would disintegrate people. Yes that was another little throwback to empire pyre when vader tells Boba Fett notice integration. Yes because he had that rifle and rifle disintegrates. Yes it does look a little bulky on him but they still make it work. It works completely nothing about again. That goes back to what I was saying before about the visual language of star wars and again in the empire strikes rex back in the original theatrical cut. There's a shot on cloud city of a guy running through running through cloud city as it's being attacked by the empire but he's holding. What's supposed to look like a futuristic device but even in the eighties? Everybody was like that is an ice cream maker. Awesome husband was just running with an ice cream maker but they brought that back And so the the client played by Verna Herzog. He actually carrying all of his best car in one of those ice cream. Oh and so. That is another throwback that I really so when he opens up the best guard the open up that containers just the ice cream maker and it's the same kind of ice cream maker that that that extra was carrying awesome and it's Super Fund. It has no bearing on anything. If you didn't know that it's it doesn't take away or add anything to it except for the factory like I know that the super fans hansel catch it. Sure the casual fan okay. Whatever you know they won't even notice it but still get to enjoy it absolutely? Yeah and the show is filled with stuff like that. There is an episode where the episode with Bill Burr where they go to like a heist episode. Yes super the prison ship. Yeah there is one on living person on that ship. That person was played by Matt. Land Her who was the voice of anecdotes skywalker in the clone wars. Yeah and a whole bunch of other stuff but it's cool to have that clancy brown played a de Veroni wasn't Ronin. He was different. He was a different species. He was the red guy the horn. Yeah but The Big Guy. Yeah but that was clancy Brown. who was the voice of sabotage press and a bunch of other true in the rebels? Yeah and and Star Wars rebels he was sabotage press. It was really cool to see people from the animation side of things being incorporated into the live action. which is the kinds of stuff? I want to see moving forward with specific characters. Sure On the inverse of that you know we're we're getting to see live action or we're getting see animation people in live action and on the mandatory and then also in Rizal Skywalker. We got sorry guys. I'm talking about it. We got to hear. Canaan from rebels was one of the voices. You heard you heard Soka. You heard every you know people who were doing voices specifically for the cartoons in for for super fans you know which if I may indulge myself they already introduced you as a superfan. Oh good good a resident expert. Sorry whatever is just whatever cooler than I actually am but it was really fun to be able to to see those things. And if let's say I'm talking to you Leigh and you have no idea who Canaan is and we see rise skywalker you're thinking it's super cool because you're seeing this really cool scene. I think it's super cool because I'm seeing is really cool scene and also Kanaan's yeah and so it's just kind of another little the thing and and the reason I bring rays of Skywalker with this is because it's all happening right now right now You know we can. We can talk about this next year when you know when I owned the box set of the man delorean and I own the skywalker. Saga and I can watch those at the same time and and it doesn't necessarily have the same effect because we can watch it whenever this is something unique to December of two thousand nineteen this is as we're experiencing the lore. which again there are some of us like like you and I who will watch the cartoons and the TV shows and read the books and read the comments but there are are some people who only will take the movies or now the TV shows as that's all they know about wars and that's totally cool but at this point you know we saw in the Manda Laurean the child the baby iota used the force to heal somebody and a week later? We're watching the rise of skywalker skywalker. And we're seeing those same force. Power is being used and just from a serial point of view for storytelling. I I'm completely fascinated by. I'm really really excited that I can experience it this way and nobody else was going to experience it this way in now even now. We're we're staring at the New Year here in the next couple of days. People aren't going to be able to experience it that way anymore. Because it's already happened past and it's kind of a lightning in a bottle

Director Greta Gerwig on 'Little Women' and Louisa May Alcott

"Start with a new film that opens this Christmas Day. It's an adaptation of Louisa May alcott novel Little Women and it is a lovely little gift of a movie yourself theory someday. So you'll need me. You'll wish you have behaved better. Thank you so much for your employment and your many kindnesses I intend to make my own way in the world. No no one makes their own way. Not really we civil woman. You'll need to marry. Well you are not married. Because I'm rich wjr. The film is from writer director. Greta GERWIG stars. Sir Sha Ronin. She played the lead in Greenwich Direct. To`real debut lady bird and the rest of the march sisters are played played by Emma Watson Elisa scanlon and Florence pugh Laura dern plays their mom and Meryl Streep is they're wealthy aunt March gerwig has been thinking about little the women for a very long time well before she even found out that producer Amy Pascal was developing a new adaptation of the novel. Here's Greta Gerwig little women and has been a book that I have loved my whole life in a very deep way to the point. Where my memories? And the memories of the March sisters were intertwined in that way that I think books of your youth can means something even beyond being books because th- they they're the they become part of your family I think that's that's the magic of Reading when you're a child is the the distinction between fiction and reality is thin for you or it. It was for me anyway But I hadn't read it since I was about fourteen or fifteen and then I read it in my early thirties when I turned thirty and I All this stuff came out at me in the book that I it not. When I was a child I can passion get so savage could hurt anyone and I enjoyed it? You remind me of myself never angry. I'm angry nearly every damn I li- reading as an adult. I heard all of these different things. I saw it as much touch spike easier and sadder and stranger and almost more triumphant in a certain way and also just is this kind of being aware of an author was another layer of it for me that Joe both wants to be an author but then Louisa as author and so even though Joe March march by the end of the book says she stops her ink well and stops writing and gets married and has children opens a school Louisa though wrote and she wrote that book and we know what. Because there's the book you know. I just sort of had an idol saw about well if I made this. I'd want to center center on this. I'd WanNa Center on all these themes that I felt I hadn't really seen yet about it which was ambition and money money and women an art and I heard in passing my agent said at a dinner. Oh they're interested making little women again again and I was like what I have to go. I have to talk to them. I have an idea and I hadn't made anything at that point. But he got me a meaning and I I went and I talked talk to them and I told them some version of what I wanted to do and And I said I want to direct it and they wanNA write in Iraq and I hadn't had nothing to really show that I could do that so but they very luckily hired me to write it. And then I wrote my draft in in two thousand fifteen two thousand sixteen and then I went away and I may lady bird and then by the time I was finishing that up they said well what what do you think about making little women and I thought I said well I knew you'd ask. I'm ready but it was a it was one one of those for two. It's turns events. I want to ask about that perspective that you had a reading the book as an adult versus as a young woman woman sure and the perspective you have as somebody who is a creative person gas writing movies and making movies because so much of the movie and certainly in the book as well is about the challenges of being a creative person and how you value your own art how you compromise with people who are financing it and how you find your voice even in those parameters that's right now there's a you you picked up all the cards I put down. No it's a it's funny. It's that the opening scene between Joe March and her publisher Mr Dash would which the majority of it is actually word for word from the book when she says took care to have a few of my sinners repent and he says people want to be amused not preach that morals. Don't sell nowadays. That could be me talking to a studio head about something. I WANNA do But it was. It was all there for me to be discovered. I didn't invent it like like I said that. That scene is a scene from the book but it felt too so relevant to right now and then beyond that when when I was researching Louisa Mail Cart and it became clear that that who Lewis male caught was was equally the subjects that I was interested in and then you learn about her life. Is You know unlike Joe. She never got married. She never had children and but she kept writing and she did keep her copyright copyright of little women which is a you know huge thing that she did and I mean there are so many things about her life and what she did. It felt eerily familiar and I think even even in the fact that Her publisher sure and even herself but her publisher truly didn't know what a hit he had. And I find that happens all the time that there's a constant underestimating of audiences that are not the same audience of the people who are in charge of publishing or whatever that may be the the first half of little win because it is really to books as written ends so group. The curtain falls upon big. Joe Beth and amy whether it ever arises again depends upon the reception given to the first act of the domestic drama called little women death. It's almost like she's saying I've got a a sequel but I hope people by the I know she's She's a business lady no she and and and it it. It's worth saying that the the initial printing sold out in two weeks and it has not been out of print for one hundred fifty years in one thousand nine hundred four. There was a story. Little women leads poll novel level rated ahead of Bible for influence on high school pupils. Yeah that's nice. I mean I mean it's just nice for her and it raises his other question like what people take away from the book because you can interpret it in very different ways. I'm going to give you two prominent women who have thoughts. That's about it. The first is Gloria Steinem. WHO said in Nineteen ninety-two? Where else could we read about an all female group who discussed work art and all the great questions or found girls who wanted to be women and not vice versa? Oh that's beautiful found girls that wanted to be women not the versa. And here's the author meal Paalea who says the whole thing is like a horror movie. I know I think if you have an idea in your head of the it can be of little women. It's usually from the first book. It's the kind of Christmas to Christmas structure. And the you know the second half of the book Louis Male jokes. She should've called the wedding marches. Because they all got married and truly British version is called good wise exactly zoo you know. It was in this to book structure which is part of why I is structured the film I did starting with them as adults Because I wanted to start with the second half but I also think there's two books embedded in it because if you you just read the book on its face value with this. Kind of pre Victorian morality of Domesticity in virtue tied to femininity communitty. And all of these kind of tidy bows put on each chapter. Then I think you miss what's really roiling roiling underneath and if you read it that way of course Camille Paglia is completely right. It is something that would be a horror show if that is all you're seeing but I'd the way I look at it is if you can take the ending of the book where she felt she must marry Joe off to someone because that's what the readers demanded and she made this economic decision. That's what she would do Because she had so books then if you if you read everything through the Lens of will she had to make it all kind of tidy for the time time then if you take away the tidiness what's left is a whole bunch of am Bishen and mess and anger and lust and craziness and things things that don't fit neatly into any box. And so what I wanted to do was not update the text. The text doesn't need updating. I wanted to take away the constraints constraints of the time in some ways. Because that's what was interesting to me and even in those constraints. Louisa really did do her best to try. I to imagine what what would in a gala -tarian marriage look like. What would something that was? Not Essentially INDENTURED SERVITUDE BE As a marriage and I feel that you know Gloria Steinem being one of them with a Simone Tip Avar Patti Smith Orlando Toronto or J. K. Rowling rallying. There's a long list of women for whom this book meant very specific freedom an ambition and what I wanted to do was make a film film that was in the tradition of why that inspired them. Because it's there's gotta be a reason more than she got married to Professor Bear Sogo to see you. Thanks for coming as really

"Through means of the Ronin were entombed in the only place where it really made sense but their master to this day near the grave of Asano Takumi no Kami there stands arrayed the graves of forty eight men and yeah forty eight. Mana many came to pray at the graves of the forty seven Ronin. The story already beginning to passed into legend. But there was one who came to pray and weep when Oyster Karnowski Lei passed out drunk in the gutter. The throat curious spies off the trail rail there was a man who spat on him who cursed his name because he hadn't been there for Asano now. He prostrate cronos gays grave begging egging him for his forgiveness in the trial. It had all come out the ruse they had played for a year. They plotted and planned getting close. To Kira Era Karnowski had sacrificed the most going so far as to divorce his wife cast out his two children. So curious men wouldn't suspect anything. The man apologized for disrespecting colonels. Gay and then he collapsed when the priests found him the also found the dagger buried in his stomach. He hadn't been one of the Ronin but he had died like one also. They had no idea who this guy was so they cremated him and put his grave next to the ones he had revered eared. So much people still go to the graves of Asano Takumi no Kami and the forty seven ronin initially became popularized and plays during the period and it was during this time that the stories got a bit muddled. There was apparently a law against dramatizing recent history so late fictionalization helped the story pass in the legend faster faster than normal. But it's absolutely true story like I said you can go visit the graves at a temple in Tokyo. And there's a festival on December fourteenth where the People Go to burn incense for Ronin to commemorate the anniversary of their revenge next week. It's not history not remotely or telling to famous GRIMM brothers stories. I I is the story of Hansel and Gretel and second is the robber. Bridegroom both of these. which were originally children's stories involve way too much? Cannibalism blood and death. So enjoy.

"The forty seven men stood in the forest each different road that led to this place but each had thought only about this place sacrificing everything else. Since the day their master was killed before the night was over they would sacrifice even more in the past month. Knee was sure. That colonel wasn't coming for him. Cure it dismissed half of his personal guard. You're sending them back to his Daimyo father-in-law he was the weakest he had been in the last year and it was only because he thought he was.

Nearly all the Ronin over the course of the last year have been curious home so there was the possibility of just you know staying in the home until after dark and poisoning him or stabbing him on some random Tuesday but it wasn't a possibility not for the Ronin.

There's off the back of the house tucking them up out of sight needing only a hook to pull them free for reviews that ladder to climb up on the roof of the entryway and jump down into into the courtyard.

"What of a son is retainers? Cure asked his chief counselor. The counselor was happy to give this news. All the retainers Cassano either took up jobs with other Daimyo or disappeared into other trades. They came from a disgraced house. It's something they wanted to put behind them in Cronos Rhino's Gay Kira asked retainers in attendance. Chuckled yeah he wouldn't be a problem. They had very good intelligence on this one. They were on the other side of the wall. When colonel escape divorced his own wife forcing her in the children out after he woke up in the street his drunkenness? Helping them sleep through the beating from peasant you only. His sixteen year old son stayed with him. And the old Ronin bought a concubine comfort him. On a slide into drunkenness.

Then Osama's retainers in the same room had let nearly a year pass ass without any attempts at vengeance over there. Master cure told his retainers to bring the spice home. No need to waste them making sure an old man dies in the Gutter Cure. It didn't think it was possible but Asano Samurai were somehow even more pathetic than their master had been of. Course who heard this but the workmen and the peddlers and the servants of the house they had all been hired in the past year on the recommendation of other workmen servants and peddlers that have been hired.

There's a sh- dick out there that people are now using to help them make stock picks and the SEC and FINRA have gotten together to issue, a joint investor warning for you not to do this. It's called making stock decisions based on social sentiment, there whole bunch of companies out there, like sticker, tags social market lyrics, and like folio, they turned social media data into investment research. The ideas, this by analyzing posts on Facebook and Twitter and elsewhere you can detect social sentiment to predict market movements, for example, if millions. The people are tweeting about how much they hate the latest iphone well that could predict that Apple's going to fall short on its profits, and therefore you shouldn't apple stock. Well, that's the theory brokerage firms and fund managers are buying the state and reselling to investors, the SEC FINRA want you to know that these tools can be inaccurate incomplete down. Rightness leading the data could be at a date social media posts may have hidden agendas. In fact, the SEC has charged someone for sending false tweets in order to influence stock prices. There are lots of indicators that are driven by social sentiment and it could.

"And it's like you can't say that. And never do anything with it and expect us to buy into the fact that this is a larger world if we don't care about the people who are saying he's live. I mean, obviously I made that lineup but the the sentiments still stands. Okay. Let's move onto HT what besides a Bumblebee in the favorite. What have you been watching? I also saw another period piece from favorite called Mary Queen of Scots. And this was a movie that star search Ronin and Margot Robbie. And it's about the titular Mary Queen of Scots who famous Leauge conspired take the throne from her cousin Queen Elizabeth played by Margaret Robbie. And it's fine. I'm going into kind of intrigued by having the female lead period piece in wondering if they would go into. Some sort of interesting female dynamic be historically accurate. These two people marry sewer and Elizabeth never met in person. So it makes sense it like a lot of the tension that takes place in this film, happens through on voice through letters, and they kind of play it well in like drawing these parallels between Mary who is very passionate firebrand and very ambitious and Elizabeth who is all powerful, but is increasingly paranoid and kind of have these two interesting storylines that kind of foul not fall apart. They don't really connect in the end, it movie ends up being more about Mary and the it's well Leicestershire Ronin market. Robbie are great. They're phenomenal. In these in these roles. The movie itself is just kind of fine. It's very sprawling, and it's written by a woman who may know from house of cards. And it kind of has that same sort of intrigue rather soap by way of intrigue if you'll like there's a lot of these sordid affairs at that are somehow supposed to make this movie is more interesting than it is and how it ties into the political intrigue going on, but I felt myself being mostly bored by a lot of it. And which is unfortunate because again, sir, Shah and Margo are so great knit. And yeah, it's kind of was I once I saw the favorite later. I was very excited to see that was the movie that I kind of wanted Mary Queen of Scots to the so sending them side by side. There's really no question, which one's better period piece and has more interesting even depictions of LT LGBT characters so. Got all right. And then I also saw a Roma which I absolutely loved. So this is a film that I've been looking forward to for a while structure by Affonso Koran and it's very intimate sort of his intimate magnum opus. It's about his own life, going Mexico and kind of about. From the point of view of this made who works for this which family, and it's it kind of. Drifts really slowly for the first half so much. So that I didn't really know where it was going. But by the end, it is like it involves you in this in his memories and in his experiences and in the the main characters experiences played brilliantly by the actress ya'll eat. So appreciate I'm very sorry from his pronouncing that she's phenomenal in it. And this movie is just it's such an experience, and it's still immersive. I saw it in adobe theater. I didn't expect it to be quite such a cinematic experience as it is it really makes use of it sound design expertly, well that the crowd scenes, for example, it kind of is done in like, the surround sounds, and it's so pin pinprick accurate that for a lot of the times. I would turn around angrily thinking that someone was talking behind me. When in fact, it was part of the movie. And it just kind of invalid you the entire time. So I really enjoyed it. And I your fourth person I've seen that has said that exact thing for that scene in that movie. Which makes you wonder like Ken, surround sound too good. Like that to me feels like it would be distracting and not immersive. I mean, I think that if you didn't realize it's me while to realize it. But then when I did it does it does like become more immersive than distracting. I don't think it was like overly distracting was kind of like in the corner of your ear more than anything. It's it's it's a really beautiful film. It's really it's very some..

'cause we live in a world where everyone's highlight reel is right out front, right? That people are always putting their best face forward on everything. You don't get behind the scenes in terms of what's really going on what issues they're having, what you know is going on.

Okay. Got it feels good, right. And then you kind of help each other through that. I mean, I think that's really powerful. Gives you that commission to go. Okay, cool.
