"One absentee ballot, and this year's election will be out of this world. NASA astronaut Kate Ruben says she plans to cast her next vote from space more than 200 miles above Planet Earth.

Phillies owner John Middleton questioned after deciding to fire Gabe Kapler
"Last year. Hindsight's great, but it wasn't hindsight. John Middleton at the news conference last year when Hey, fired Gabe Kapler, and this is self explanatory, and let's hear John When you fired Ruben Amaro, you said it's a results based business, right? Gabe Kapler took the hit. And I'm wondering why it was just Gabe Kapler. And I, among other people are wondering why this and I like both Matt and Andy. Why those two gentlemen are sitting with you today after what you've done, so I'm gonna ask you a question. How are you going to give you some stats? The question is this You tell me what part of this organization isn't better today and really substantially better today than it was four years ago when they came So that's a little minor league system and I see since match drafted I believe you have two players that made the major leagues and Kohler bring this year and hazily. So outside of that, I'm wondering there's a feeder system. Other teams have injuries and they've overcome them. The Phillies couldn't and I don't think it was all games for, but I realized the decision had to be made. But what did he have to support him? From your draft picks. So happened Let me I've got the bullpens IRA, but to answer your question in the second half of the season, particularly from the trade deadline on Howard Isn't it? The fourth highest for the best bullpen? You're a in baseball. So this kind of sit there and say that covered was bears is not true, because if that's the case, then what about the other 2016? The worst bullpen. The cupboard was bare. Look at the bullpen this year. I love the way McClintock and he looked at Macklin Tak when he said that he fed him all these stats. Two roll out during this news conference. That's a joke. The bullpen the fourth best from July on well, this season doesn't go from July 1, and that's It was, it was a mirage. It was a joke to defend him and then animate failure says Well, we have three players in the top 100 baseball in the minor league system. There's 30 teams. That's barely an average. The Braves had five in the top 64. So let's go. Let's move on. So this week, McClintock and this is beautiful, too. This is a joke. God, let's go with McClintock. Um I am really proud of this team the way that they have overcome Not only the cove it issues early in the year, but more recently, the way the guys have stepped up to overcome some of the injuries that we've had Andi put themselves in a position this week to control their own destiny on DH Make a push for October. Um, that's probably The biggest thing for me, Bob is that I'm proud of the way this group is handled it. There's been, um, you know again, there been many challenges, most of which you've written about, but Just to see guys. Come up from the system and contribute to see the way that No nap and March John have performed in Jae Hee's absence to see The way that bone has been able to slide over from third to first security downs from 2nd 3rd to help us navigate. Reese is injury. Um, you know the way that Kodiak come up and got a couple of big plate appearances for us. I'm sure I'm missing. Jo Jo and Brandon have taken down beginnings the last couple of weeks. I think that's the thing I'm most proud of with. This group has been really rallied around the next man up mentality and put themselves in a good position heading into the final week. It's a joke. It's a joke I spin. He is the new spin doctor, Philadelphia. They've navigated through the Kobe. So is every other team. The Cardinals are still in it, and they had 11 doubleheaders. The Marlins had to sit in a hotel room for over over seven days, and they're in the playoffs. I don't want to hear about navigating through it. I don't want to hear about injuries. The Braves lost at one time or another, Every one of their five starters. They lost Freddie Freeman at the beginning of the year. They lost a kuna. I mean, it's a joke to you to say, Oh, yeah way injuries and bone moves from third to 1st 1st is probably his natural position and sugar goes from 2nd and 3rd. He started the season at third. It's been It's nonsense, and Jo Jo You know, coughed it up the last two outings. Stop stop. They actually got a break The way Hoskins was hitting that those things happened in their offense, maybe became a little bit better in five years. He's got one player to show for it. One player And that's Alec. Bone. One player

What to expect from Amazon's 2020 Alexa bonanza
"Amazon's annual Alexa launch event is coming up on Thursday. And if it's anything like past years, it's going to be a busy day. I'm Ben Fox Ruben, and this is your daily charge. Joining me today is David priests, who covers all things Alexa here at CNN, Aman how's it? GOIN'. Doing. All right. How are you? Doing. Okay. So what are you really hoping to see tomorrow? What's what's your expectation from? Let's let's start with the echo up. Yes, sure. So, last year I mean this is an interesting year because last year you had sort of a shotgun blast of Alexa devices that we were kind of expecting to see you know we we thought we saw the echo show five come out during the summer we knew that they were going to be some speakers and displays that we're going to be rounding out their product lines. This year is not really the same. We already have you know multiple generations of displays and speakers. We already have the kind of baby bear Mama, bear, Papa Bear version of the display and the speaker. So everyone unconfined that just right device for them. So you know as far as displays speakers go don't think that we're going to see any huge revamps or huge surprises in terms of those devices what what we might see is. you know some added Polish or added features like we got with the echo dot with Kwok last year where they took an existing device and kind of added a convenient feature on top of it. Yeah one of the one of the few that they didn't update last year if I remember correctly was the echo spot, which is which is looking a little stale at this point. The thing is is that you could argue that the echo show the newer echo shows kind of replaced at. the other thing that you didn't mention where some of the mobile elements for cow so that Includes the. Auto. Hardware that Gizmo that you put in your car in addition to some of the weirdoes stuff like the glasses and earn ring like an actual ring you put on your finger and usually they they tend to have these types of oddball items whether it's a wall clock or microwave or ring so I would also expect to see some of those. Just they really loved like throwing Spaghetti on the wall I would I would share I are and one thing that's always interesting about them to. As you know, Amazon is really willing to you both abandoned device that's just not working. You know I remember testing out the original tap, which was you know Kinda got left behind. And that very well could happen with the echo loop or something like that from last year. That's the ring. Yeah. But also if if there's a product that they sort of throw out there and does stick to the wall, they're very willing to kind of lean into that and so if they're you know if they think the frames are doing really well, we could see some expansion of those products you know. So they're not just sort of limited release it sort of expands and gets a little bit more wide reach in their release or even new versions of them. Yeah. I'm kind of excited to see what they do. It's always it's always exciting and there's some surprises there. So do you think that the I've written versions of the story? In various times over the years do you think the lineup has gotten way too confusing like you talked about the tap, they actually discontinued the tap but like now they have like a very long list of echo items and some of them are really niche like the echo glow which I think is like a night light. So. So is it time for them to like shrink it down and kind of focus or you know they're just to keep doing what they've been doing, which is you know, let's throw out as many products as we can think off so. You know I think that there definitely is reason for them to focus their core lineup and I think they've done that with speakers and devices. And in a couple of other categories this while the. Euro. Stuff like that. So they have routers and they have the ring doorbells. So they have those core devices with with each of those properties and they have slightly different branding for some of them. But those those core lineups don't really get damaged or you know muddled by the addition of a bunch of extra things that they're trying out like echo auto and the frames and. you know the glow and things like that. So I think it's I. think that they have actually done a pretty good job of distinguishing between their core lineup devices that they're definitely going to be trying to get everybody to get during the holiday season and the ones that they're just sort of putting out there to see if there's interest if they want to expand it if people would buy if they put it out there.

"ruben" Discussed on Real Estate Rookie
"Not Work. Do what you want. Love Your House and not have that financial burden of Oh my gosh. I have to pay my mortgage or I got to pay this you. You know that your properties are going to be doing that. And what's awesome about that? Let me add Ruben is that your properties are not going to have history right, so you have two or three years of history with those properties paying cash flow, and you'll be able to know and feel secure at night that your mortgage will be getting paid by these properties, and not just that you are providing a great house for someone else to live in. Tested by Ruben because you're living in one now, but we'll be able to say. This is a great house. Right and someone that maybe can get a mortgage right now, or that's needing rent for the next couple of years. You know you're providing that so speaking of that. What's your typical tenant? Give us a little insight in your area. What is your typical tenant? Look like in the property that you have? What's an ideal tenant well? It's hard to say because I I'm getting from all different walks of life. I got a guy that works for flooring company. I have another set attendance that they weren't at the local juvenile senator. I have another set attendant said they worked for the federal government have another ten in debt, their teachers, and then I got another guy who works for an oilfield company. Across everywhere. Across the board, a love that so I like to share something with you. All know think it's very important. If you sift your mind to it, you're going to figure out how to get it done. And so this this off market new. We just talked about it. Prefer closure situation I was under the contract on another foreclosure when this opportunity came up so I had money set aside for the down payment on the one I had under contract that I purchased offer mls, and in about three weeks later is when this pray for closure situation POPs up so now okay? I got another opportunity for another great deal. where I'M GONNA walk into with about forty fifty thousand dollars in equity, but yet I have this money already. Committed to this foreclosure that I'm about to close in in about thirty days. So how can I make it happen? So I started thinking and I had another rental that I had a lot of equity, so I called my mortgage lender. I said Hey. I got an opportunity for another off. Market situation and I need the money. This is what I like to do. I like to take this property over here. Do A cash out. Refi take that money and utilize it to able would fund this off market deal.
Dave Rubin on Thinking for Yourself in this Age of Unreason
"They would've thrilled and honored to have you on the show. Welcome dose of leadership. It's good to be with you. Let's test my leaderships. I gotTa tell you I was telling a little bit in the prerecording that you know when I found you I found Peterson particularly, U2. I've been really frustrated over the last I. Don't know probably five years, but particularly this last year as if everything's gone upside down, I felt kind of And I even like politics much, but I felt politically loss i. feel like I didn't have a home, and so I wanted to thank you for some foremost for the work that you do and great job on your book. I finished it. In one night, so don't run. This book was awesome, so thank you for for the work that you do. Well? Thank you for the kind compliments. You're obviously buttering me up before we get into the the tough stuff, but you know it's. It's an odd thing for me because I don't consider myself. Particularly controversial I don't consider myself someone that courts. Anger or hostility or or even fame in a weird way. I'm just saying what I think. I talked to people that I think are interesting, and then, and then on that journey I've been honest about how I've changed certain beliefs, or how I have refined certain things or how I think differently, or how those all of all of that stuff, how that has just incorporated into my life, and now running several businesses and having employees, and all of those things, and you know through doing all that I think something. Something good has sort of magically appeared, and the fact that you know people say what you just said to me pretty often that you know. I help them maybe I introduce them to Jordan. And then, through Jordan, they were able to fix something in their life or not, even just about Jordan and self help, specifically, maybe their own political evolution, maybe something about belief or lack of belief or philosophy. If I've had anything to do with anyone's ability to. Pilfer a little more happiness or find a little more purpose in the world. That's that's pretty frequent spectacularly well I. think it's because it's rooted in a couple of things. It's rooted in authenticity which I think is lacking in so many. Bastions so many corners of our world, and so I think that's something I. Definitely learned from doing this show and I think any modicum of success. That I've had on this show in from the feedback that I've got from. Is and where I saw the turning point was. I just need to be authentic and transparent. I'm not trying to be an interviewer. I'm not trying to be something that I'm not and I. See that in you, even reading in your book and knowing what about your history and it wasn't that long ago to be quite honest and I love your story where you had the conversation with Larry Elder, and where you had the courage in the Tennessee to stay. You know what I kind of got. beat up here, let's. Play it as it is I. Think even your producer at the time. Whoever it was said Hey, we'll cut that out. Don't worry, and you said No. Let's just leave it in and. That was kind of a turning point for you, wasn't it wasn't that long ago? Which I know? Well I describe it as as my best and worst career moment at the exact same time you know it was my worst for obvious reasons. Right I came to a fight. In this case, it intellectual fight over systemic racism and I wasn't armed with facts so when I said sort of the default setting thing the Idaho will systemic racism exists meaning it's built into the system. There are laws about it about the racist laws in the system, the American system itself I just said it as if. By the fact that I'm saying it must inherently be true. Larry, then just as I say in the book he beat me senseless with facts fact, after fact after fact, and I guess the moment that for a lot of people with special, there is that you can sort of see me. Take the hit. I didn't I didn't attack him. Personally attack him I didn't end the interview any of that stuff I just kind of sat there with it. And then when the interview closed as you said, I went into the control room, and several producers were in there. At the time it was before we were completely independent, and everybody said Dave. Don't worry about it. We're going to cut that. And I really didn't have to think about it I was just like. Is You know what if I'm doing anything worthwhile? If this has any meaning whatsoever, we have to leave it and I. Know I'm not GonNa. Look Great, but we have to leave it and you know the next couple of days as the clips started going around and you know how. How youtubers larryelder destroys capital letters day. Ruben conservative crushes Lib, Taw, or the rest of that stuff well in the initial hit of that I was like Oh man. This stinks like nobody wants to be on the receiving end of that, but what I realized really after maybe three days was that the commentators were suddenly going holy cow Dave Dave sat thing. Excuse me. Dave sat there and took it, and then they started watching change over the next couple of months learning more about it having having those conversations going further with it, you know eventually getting to talk to people like Thomas Old. Who was a mentor of of Larry? Elder's and I think that sort of honest approach is very attractive to people I, it's not rocket science. It's just it's just being who you are being humble in the moment and seeing what happens,
Even Amazon Prime Day had to bow down to the pressures of coronavirus
"Would means longtime daily charged contributor and Amazon expert. Ben Fox Ruben welcome bent. Hello, so there are a lot of things to get to as always a busy time for Amazon, but let's start with Prime Day yesterday. dake firmed a delay. We technically were supposed to be knee deep in deals right now. So what happened Krona happen? Coronavirus happen to everything this year, and it's actually a little surprising that they took this long to confirm something that everybody already knew was happening. There were rumors swirling for months. The Prime Day was. was going to be delayed because of coronavirus. At first there were rumors. I think they were coming from the Wall Street Journal that it was going to be pushed to September and then business insider more recently, said guess what it's actually going to be October now. It probably will be October because if they delay it any further than that. You're getting into Thanksgiving late. November! Maybe they're going to do that. It's possible that they do that and they just make prime day like a couple of days during the holiday selling season. But. It's a different year for Brian Day. Just like it's a different year for just about everything. And that's an interesting question terms of the timing of this event because. Yet do they just clump it together with the rest of the holiday shopping season two? They have own separate thing. I'm curious how many shopping bonanza vents. The consumer is actually willing to tolerate especially in this condition. Okay, so they've already failed in the General Prime Day mission, which is a summer sale when the summer is usually a relatively slow time in retail. That's not going to happen anymore. That's over. Usually. They announced Prime Day in late June, and then they hold it in mid-july. We're already and later July. So that's that's not going to happen anymore. It's also a great question that you mentioned that like. The sales bonanzas and big summer sales or any sale whatsoever. Can come off as tone-deaf during coronavirus because people are getting sick. People are losing their jobs I. Don't need to tell you what's happening. You know it's terrible so encouraging people to buy a Roomba. That's not so great. One Way to do it, which could work would be to encourage people to go shopping, because it helps small and medium-sized businesses which sell on Amazon. They do that a lot already. Maybe it would work this time. I'm sure they're gonNA. Try to emphasize that but. People are trying to save as much money as they can. So I I. Don't know how successful Prime Day will be, and it's obviously they're gonNA have to thread the needle here as far as what tone they said, that's proper and actually did hold serve a quiet stealth event earlier this summer. They held a fashion centric sale I. Don't know if you've got any read on. How well that's done! No! No I haven-, which means that are probably didn't do that. While usually Amazon likes to promote how their sales do with these vague metrics. They didn't even provide those the reason they did. The fashion centric thing was because people really aren't buying a lot of close other than Pajama Pants and sweat pants, so maybe we can try to convince you to get a blazer. It's thirty or forty percent off. I don't think people are doing that I'm certainly not doing that so I don't I don't really know whether it was successful or not by. I don't I. Don't believe it was in the end. They downplayed it pretty significantly. Because of the reasons, we mentioned
JetBrains with Natalie Kudanova
"Chedda Brennan Susan International Company of at Crates, professional software development tools to help developers work smarter and faster. We do strive to create the strongest most effective developer tools and of ambitious attitudes. By mating common tasks, we enabled programmers to focused on co design and the big picture instead of boilerplate. Code. That's awesome so I'm curious I have spent some time as a product marketing manager, and it's always kind of a difficult rule to explain the people people are not clear whether or not it's technical or not, so what is a day in the life of a product marketing manager? And do you really see a hybrid between product and marketing? Well in a sense it is, and actually there is no typical day at least for me I'm basically the person helps the team. There will be maintained. Hear the voices so for Ruby developers and I'm the one who tells Ruby developers would good Ruben mind has to offer. That said I communicate with customers, online and offline I'm in charge of advertising mortgage, research, content, creation, codeine, sometimes and so I. Don't do it all myself of course, but I am the dot to where all these lines connect. I love that where some of the best places either online or offline to reach Ruby developers. Oh. I'd say it's a it. Of course and twitter has a huge community. And we have our own channels like our newsletters. We also forget a lot of feedback a the our. Issue Tracker. So. There are lots of places. Social Media and online. That's great, so I'M GONNA. Put you on the spot and ask you for an elevator pitch for our listeners who haven't had a chance to ever use ruby mind before I've been a user for about five years and I absolutely love it. So why should ruby developers consider using ruby mine? Ruben. Mine is an ID that said it has all essential tools that help you go. More efficiently. It offers powerful Golden, said features such as gold. Completion Golden Education language, specific inspections will quick success refectory in editor, Weekday Communication Remind provides a test runner debater visa supporter I could go for hours. It's basically everything you need to develop and Ruby only monoplace. Now I agree I really and I should say this as well that jeopardizes not a sponsor of the podcast I was excited to have Natalie on. Just because I've been a user of the tool for so long and really there isn't many tools out there like ruby mine, and what's fascinating about jet brains is Ruby mine yeses further ruby on rails community, but they have a solution for pretty much every market out there. My partner writes PHP foles full time and he uses PHP storm. Yeah actually it's pretty easy to transfer from one idea to another for example. If you want to learn a new language or try something you, you can just switch to a different Gebran tie, and you'll be like at home.
Trump Got Written Briefing in February on Possible Russian Bounties, Officials Say
"Is going to the White House today. They will be briefed on reports that Russia offered to pay Taliban linked fighters in Afghanistan to kill U. S troops. The lawmakers want to know who in the White House knew what And when. The New York Times now reports that President Trump got a written briefing about this in late February. There are various reports we should note about when the president was told, but the White House said As thie information never reached him. NPR congressional reporter Claudia Great Solace is on the line. Good morning, Claudia. Good morning knew. Well, what will happen in this meeting today? This will be led by House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer. The White House says they requested this meeting with Democrats and Democrats in turn, so they have a lot of questions. The group. Joining Hoyer Thiss meeting includes the chairs and members of several congressional committees with jurisdiction over this matter, and they're looking for answers. For example, I talked to representative Ruben Gallego of Arizona. He's a combat veteran, and he's not buying the administration's argument that they didn't share this information sooner because they're still trying to prove it out. And the story continues to evolve. In a new statement, the National Security Advisor Robert O'Brien said intelligence officials continue to investigate and could prepare a response over time. Okay, so Democrats go into the White House today. Interestingly, the White House briefed some Republicans yesterday. What happened in that meeting. So several of these members who attended this meeting afterwards echo the White House's narrative that the Intel community is conflicted on what actually happened and that they didn't necessarily think that Trump needed to be briefed yet, But they also expressed concern If the reports turn out to be true, I spoke to representative Adam Kinzinger of Illinois. He's also a combat better and let's take a listen. I think as we get more answers, then we'll know what the response needs to be. But I don't think this is built up to be any kind of internal scandal. But it is definitely a concern by way of. You know what roller is Russia playing in Afghanistan? NPR also spoke with representative Michael McCaul, another member who attended the meeting. He's a top Republican for the House Foreign Affairs Committee. And he said these allegations are very serious. And if true, he thinks the U. S needs to take swift and severe action against Russia. Of these meetings leave most of Congress still to be briefed on the matter, and congressional leaders such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and others say these briefings fall woefully short of what's demanded here. NPR congressional reporter Cloudy gray solace. Thank you, Claudia. Thanks for having me.
A Pandemic Dahhhling, Do You Know What That Means?!
"Hello everybody welcome back to the body. Serve Jonathan and I'm James. His I told you had a bit of a surprise for you at the start. Those, Where we're watching the great, we've got one episode left and it's filled with Hazaras. That is the catchphrase. We are in the middle of pride month, and before we get into the show, a special shot and thanks to Tom Humber stone who has been or designer over the years for? Various artwork that you may see associated with the body serve, and he's given the body serve a pride makeover, so we've updated all of our various socials and websites, and you can have a look at what he did there. We think it's just swell, so thank you talk so there's been a lot of news this week. Tennis's not exactly back in full swing, but it is apparently coming soon. The plans are in place for the US Open Roland Garros and for the WPA of pretty full fall. Schedule this to happen in one day. Basically. You wake up before i. do so when I got up. We'll tell you when that was or when that typically is. Knows a lot for me to catch up on. It took a while took like full day very like I had a a grasp of what was going on, and what it felt like to me, was one domino started, and then everybody was like damn. Yes, so the USDA teased a little bit earlier in the week that they were primed to go ahead than a big announcement was coming pending government approval we had heard rumors about the zoom calls this huge. ATP Zoom Com that no Ruben was talking about on the behind the rocket podcast, criticizing Novak Djokovic for allegedly not being there, so we knew there were is nothing alleged about to. He was not okay. The whole point university I don't WanNa get spread cheated. You know everybody's got to be charted once in a while. The so there were there were murmurs throughout the week, but. Wednesday at ten am. The US Open holds a press conference in the empty and cavernous. Arthur ash stadium. Stacey Allaster is there? They have a few other folks on court physician. Mc I forgot who that was. Sorry. My reporting skills are just not up to snuff over the the tennis break, but it was very much a public relations event. There were a lot of sport reporters on zoom. So after the the press conference happened, or after the main presentation happened, there were individual questions by. Reporters who they showed on zoom, and when we found out that there wouldn't be media physically on site. We got the sense that this, too was a trial run for what the media access will be at the actual tournament where presumably players will be interviewed via zoom. Right, so the big announcement as I'm sure you've already heard that the US Open will go ahead. As planned in the the same part of the calendar in New, York City at Billie Jean, King National Tennis Centre with no spectators, and with a lot of health provision in place, but listen I'm still surprised that they're going full steam ahead. I'm still extremely skeptical and especially what we're seeing now in. Clemson University for example. was. At twenty three members of the football team tested positive for COVID. The exploding numbers and Florida Arizona California baseball has affected right now. Golf is affected right now pretty much every sport that you've seen. Attempts to restart has been affected in one way or another in tennis. Not going to be immune to that and we'll get to why. We think that that's the case based on what's been going on overseas. Break so I? Guess I'm getting ahead of myself. Let's just go through the actual news first, and then we can comment on it as part of this abbreviated summer schedule, or there will be the Washington D. C.. C. Tournament, the city open held in DC, starting August fourteenth for the men I. Don't think we have heard about the possibility of a winds tournament yet, but I believe it's being discussed because it's typically joint event, right, it's not currently in the WTO calendar, but apparently that is still open, then the western and southern open. That is normally in Cincinnati will be held in New York City the week before the US Open. And then the US Open and because Cincinnati is moving to new. York. That means that there will be no qualifying. For the US Open because typically the week leading into the Grand Slam in New, York, city. It's this. It's this week long. Qualifying Extravaganza pretty much and so with Cincinnati playing that there's no room for qualifying
The Atheist Experience with Matt Dillahunty & Lloyd Evans
"Telling you. Guys are no longer quarantined has got you know so. That's nice. Maybe I can go out I can go anywhere. I like in the car. Don't wish to Ruben though I can go anywhere I like in the car. Or okay. And actually it's annoying to me right now, because basically the mayor of Austin has announced like a day or so ago that. Because there's been an increase in uptick since I, started opening things up that he's probably going to extend the stay at home order, which was supposed to end on the tomorrow the fifteenth and I haven't heard yet. If the announcements been made, it may be that it gets made tomorrow. I don't know I. Get frustrated because on the rare occasions when I do have to go out like I have to get groceries or do whatever I find myself like physically bristling at all the idiots that aren't social, distancing an art, wearing masks and our. Hey, let's go down to the beach and let's go downtown. A party and I can I can understand a grant. Not, necessarily in favor of taking the risk for protest, but I mean you know Bach lives matter and we're in this constant state where it seems like somebody some African. American male is going to be killed by the cops any given week. And I think that's an important thing to address so I'm not down on the protest I. Wish people would be a little more safe and a little 'cause This cursing not gone, and we have several states who started to reopen and what we've seen is an uptick in the number of hospitalizations, and that's going to be the prime driving factor whether or not the mayor of Austin keeps it that way for for Travis County. Ration- of other people is just lacking in general in society nowadays, isn't it? I mean you would think that black lives master would just be a given. The people don't get behind it, but just lack of consideration for other people's experience Israeli. There's a lot of lot of positions that I. think should be met with well Duh and they're not. Yeah some cases they're met with. No, no, no. Don't say that say lives matter right so when we're trying to save the rainforest. You'RE GONNA. Come up and say hey. For strikes they've all forests you know. Don't do any research on prostate cancer cure all cancer we did. The black lives matter livestream my channel today and one of my guess came up with an excellent answer to lives must've from Matthew Iowa. Uh, you know what Jesus says you. If you're missing a sheep, don't you? Leave all of your chic behind and go find your lost sheep right well. Shouldn't the same logic apply when you have an entire demographic, the suffering inequality and injustice. Don't you focus on that so i? The Biblical explanation I've heard wildlife, Mahama Gosh we're GONNA have to put that in front of. In front of every Christian, who doesn't seem to understand it, but I don't know
Hashimotos Disease Improves by Eradicating Blastocystis Hominis
"Welcome everyone to punctual. Medicine Research on Dr Hedberg and today I'm going to be reporting on a new study on how she motos disease. And the intestinal parasite blastocyst ominous. There's a new paper very very good. Paper just came out and it's a stronger study than what we had previously on blastocyst. This ominous Hashi motos disease which was really just a case. Study and case studies are fairly weak when it comes to their scientific rigor and How much we can really put our faith in a study. That's just a case study because it's just a single individual but this paper is really well done not as many subjects as we would like but still a strong start. And so the paper is called improving. Hashimoto's thyroiditis by radic aiding blastocyst this Hamas in relation to I l seventeen. This was published in the Journal. Therapeutic advances and etto chronology metabolism by L. Zawawi we at all out of Egypt so the authors begin talking about a very important fact that Hashi motos thyroiditis was once thought to be a T. H. One mediated disease but now we know it's a t h seventeen mediated Z's and so t h one just means t helper one cells anti-age seventeen or t helper seventeen cells in until we had discovered t h seventeen cells. We thought that autumn unity was regulated by t h one or t h two cells. And now we know that's not true actually known that for quite a while but for a long time there. It was taught that a autoimmune disease could be t h one or t h to illness But that's just not true. So t h seventeen cells are the cells that drive auto immunity and they produce interleukin seventeen. Or I'll seventeen and that's what this paper is is investigating so quick review of blastocyst. This hominids it is the most common intestinal parasite and humans but most people never get any symptoms but it is an opportunistic parasite so if your gut immune system becomes compromised it can multiply and cause got symptoms like Constipation Diarrhea Year. Double Bowel like symptoms joint pain. Of course it will drive auto immunity and a lot of other health issues and so blastocyst hominids. We don't know exactly the prevalence of somewhere around one point six to sixteen percent in developed countries. But it's up to sixty percent in developing countries and that's because we get it from contaminated food or water and so in developing countries the water. The food is much more likely to be contaminated. So let's break down. The study was sixty patients age. Nineteen to fifty seven and there were nineteen females and one male in each group so we at twenty patients in each group three groups group one twenty patients recently diagnosed with Hashi Motos and they did not have blastocyst as Hamas infection group to twenty patients recently diagnosed with harshly motos. They had confirmed blastocyst. This ominous infection and group. Three were twenty healthy subjects without Hashi motos and were not infected with blastocyst as ominous so just remember group three Are the healthy people with no issues group. One had Hashimoto's with no parasite group to had Hashi motos with the parasite so all the subjects in group one in two had a history of fatigue nine patients in group one and seven patients in Group. Two had a history of constipation and six patients in group to had a history of diarrhea and so blasio sisters as is commonly causes diarrhea so interestingly everyone in group to. Who's infected with blastocyst? Us had higher blood pressure than the other two groups and so they ran a bunch of tests they did free t four free. T. Three T. S. H. Anti Peo-. Antibodies I'll seventeen. They did a stool analysis. Complete blood count liver enzymes. Albumin Billy Ruben. Cholesterol triglycerides blood urea nitrogen and created. And so they were looking at liver and kidney health lipids and the immune system so group to which was the group infected with blastocyst sisters ominous. They were treated with the medication. Nana's Oxyde for three days to eradicate the parasite and they were retested. Six weeks later to confirm that the parasite was gone and it was effective for everyone. So these are the study results. So T. S. H. levels were higher and groups one and two compared to the healthy group as expected
Talking Jovo with Jan Knig and Ruben Aegerter
"I want to get back to Jovo you. Guys recently launched version three. Either one of you. I just WanNa can you give an overview for listeners who may not have been on top of that news of exactly what was involved in version three? What's new with version three Surya Let me get started than Ruben Talk a little more about the expanded because he built it so Jovi. Three is all about enabling developers and companies to advise to any platform or device so we see of voice as essential parts Off a product ecosystem that that companies half we WANNA make it easier for them to build experiences into into anything they can offer and so one part is building vice atop of existing platforms like Big speed now like Alexa. Google system than other parts are also to build voice into mobile APPs in phone experiences. We offer Integration for example. We offer mobile APP as decays to really built into mobile apps and then also custom hot weather so we we have. We have examples where we can build a voice assistant into respirate pie for example so this is all powered by a pipeline called rider pipeline. That makes it easy to interchange. Certain building blocks for a speech recognition for natural language understanding Texas beaches on so our goals for the three was to build an abstraction layer. That makes it easier for people to add voice anywhere. I love that anywhere. So let's kind of evolving from you know you guys are super well known for probably the very best in the premier framework for building costs. Franken Alexa Google right. Because that's where he got started a now you're saying not only adding additional voice platforms up at light speed. Which ASCII Ruben about in a second? But all these other places if you want to enable voice Joel is a framework to allow you to name that I love that. I think it's it's sorely needed. Because voice is preyed on voice assistance.
Pareto Product Programming with Philip Poots
"Has ruby on rails been the focus of the majority of your web developer career yet pretty much so since since two thousand seventeen I go to a job in two thousand nineteen so actually in the North. I was in the In Scotland I and then I moved to the northeast of England and it was actually pretty difficult at that point to find a job in rails in the UK. He either have to go down to London which I wasn't very keen on am or what I should have done is like applied to somewhere in America like twitter or get up before they were huge right so so I started dot net job. And I'd never done anything apart from rails so during the dot net job actually gave me that experience of high horrible and Terrible. It is to program without rails especially at that point right because we're talking. I duNNO WINDOWS ARE. I don't know what don't that hot at the time they didn't even have a speed on. Nbc was literally Web view as it was it was just a mess and the things I was building I was like. I could do this in a couple of weeks with rails. Why am I spending like three months so I quickly got out of that fund? The job with a company actually started very early with the pre one version of rails but I think the version at that point was one point two point three and until I worked in that for a couple of years then. I moved to sage in accounting company. That's where we did like the real to reel. Three upgrades moved to give a like a funding platform for charitable enterprises and that was mainly rails. The only thing there was we moved from like postscript to doing Mongo DB and then moved very quickly back again and then moved to funding gets where it was back in amber jazz from Dent. And I'm where I am not club. Collectors also Manley rails. Yes Oh so pretty much ten years of reels with little ventures here and there to other things I think that's a really fascinating background and I love the fact that you have prior experience with different language and a different framework. You can truly appreciate all that rails can give you. I'm at the point where I think I'm going to have to start producing patches for developers who've done the rails two to three upgrade the rails three to four upgrade. Just because I feel like it's a badge of honor at this point and luckily we're very spoiled now. As Ruben developers were. These upgrades aren't nearly as tough as they used to be. Absolutely so I got to ask you a little bit about this in person when I met you a pair of Srb but I'd love to hear all about club collect and what your role of a VP of engineering means to you. Yes sure so. M many ways the rule of VPN engineering is at club. Collect is is very much a dream job for me so I actually started a club collectors. As a developer in in in the river tame 'em Very grateful to two atom pulse. Eric co-founders so eric was the CTO on 'em he decided to take a step back from operations he loves being involved in companies at the early stages am and he asked me to to to basically step into his position 'em so he's still acting CTO when he's still like assigning board but then I'm like handling day today operations within the engineering and the reason I like. It is the reason I'm always attracted to startups is to be in an environment where you're wearing a lot of different hats and you're in a lot of different things with the goal of seat to have a big impact is possible this versus you know. My experiences in smaller companies are sorry in larger companies. We have a smaller role in a smaller impact. And we really frustrates me. When you get you know m specs through from someone two or three people removed from you with things in them where you think you know if we just change this little bit and not little bit we could have this done in a couple of days but the way it's written it's GonNa take two weeks and then to suggest it and to get the answer back. No this is the way we're GonNa do it at that kind of whist an eliminating. That waste is why I really like working in the startup environment. And so so the you know the day today is is very very an 'em anything from talking to the rest of the management team of the leadership team.

"His hometown. No all of Washington. So life-size actually bigger than life. I mean about nine feet tall and bronze and the whole spiel. And so that was they. Will he be dressed as Batman? No honoring the men and Adam West and the APP. I don't know half of his face and then in the cow I don't know but I I think a bit of it objectively like how you know. Here's this kid that comes to the parents come to America. He sees this show has his career. And now he's going to do this monument but you know looking at it from yeah Macrocosm like this from afar. It's amazing how Fei God in all that works his fingers in your life to put the puzzles the pieces of the puzzle together and I remember telling the artist Even in Florida Be Patient. There's a reason why. And there's a stepping stone and you gotta go through this and I know you want to direct. I know you want to be unanimous Right now learn this. You know let the the rose bloom slowly as it does. Don't pull the pedals so quick. You don't be so anxious things do happen and and If you have the right intention the the as my dad would say the the the right virtues And you you know you wish something you pray for something they do come true and is on the way you expect or thinking. Well right I mean like you said when you look back at your career your life you you probably could not have planned it how it turned out and yet there's probably a big party. I know for me when I look at my life. There's nothing I would change. I feel like everything was there for like you said the stepping stones that I had to go to the path that I had to take to get to do this thing or have this opportunity or whatever that brought me a lot of joyous and artists as an animator. Whatever it had to go that way and yet. I didn't think it was supposed to go that way when I was man. I remember you know both of us. We're impatient right like you were talking. About Ruben. With Kelly are other artists. You know but in in hindsight looking back. You're like no that had to happen. I had to stick their for another year. Whatever doing something that I really didn't like and I thought I was ready for the next step and Blah Blah Blah and people were holding me back or whatever but looking back like no no. If I got it then I wouldn't have been ready. You know something like that. So these things they happen for a reason if you if you cook a little bit longer sometimes you know you just more prepared for the next step just tastes better. That's a weird. Yeah analogy now. Brought it around made it work all right so we are going to have to. We could go on and on ribbon. You've had such a rich career and I. I'm glad we got a doug dig into a few of it. You know a few pieces of it especially the Disney stuff but touch Johnson. The Warner Brothers staff especially your family staff. Which is I think. Super Interesting your lineage. We're just honor to have you on our podcast by friend. Well thank you. It's an honor to be here. It's an honor to be your guy's friends and colleagues and thank you. I'm amazed at all you guys have done to you both all these years since we last saw each other at Disney.

"Pocahontas surfaced after that I would say after that thousands. Maybe yeah I would say wait. Wait wait wait after that. A lot of burn out because we were tired for a good decade and things weren't think the word as they were and as we know in history is written about it and all that and so I had an opportunity to go back but in my heart I dislike. I couldn't go back and I said he'd it's either sink or swim. Now do my own thing or not and I and I just jumped off that diving board and so for about whatever is keen. I lost count. Maybe ten fifteen years. I had my own studio business and and and I offered everything in anything from you. Mentioned in. And little did I know and Being lucky here in Burbank. All the studios are all around here. You Know Universal Cartoon Network Disney Warner Brothers and whatnot and so word got around or I would show my staff. They would go. Oh you're that guy you come in. What would you like to do and you go? You don't me. And because we were so in the Disney thing. Yeah and he has. You mentioned the cog in the wheel again just like a grain of sand. You're just part of a team. No but they go. Oh you're Ruben and you know and then like come on in the design this and how he's got that and so opportunities started just to open up and and As one colleague said you never know who's GonNa call him the when the phone rings in and that's what happened for many years and Nick in one week? I'd be sculpting the next week I'd be drawing the next Kirby Dick Character designing some weeks. It'd be doing all three and staying up all hours a day and the hard part about having your own company and it's it's it's Kinda hard part of being a freelancer too. We talked about a little bit on a couple of the PODCAST. Like Brett. Bean when we'd podcast with him. You know the freelancer life can be a tough one because it's sink or swim a lot of times. Did you have times where having your own studio was was really difficult because there wasn't any work or do you feel like you had a good run. I had a pretty good run. But I did have some droughts here and there and but you know I kind of rode the wave and would come in and out and and I do have some fun memories and my dad had retired around same time that I had left Disney. So we kind of became a team and so he when I would get like. Let's say one job or two or three jobs I would hand over to him the the my plans and blueprints for a the armature or this and that so he was preparing the next week while I was working on the current work and so we had a little like assembly language. How wonderful so so then. My sister got involved in my wife got involved and became a family thing and so So it was a good run and The reason I'm back in the studio system is because Batman because they were doing a batman movie and and Had HEARD ABOUT IT. Batman Sixty six based on the TV show and The the producer of that show James Tucker like my work had seen my comic book work and said L. Boy. I can use a person on our team that knows the character knows you know the style the style and all that back into that so the Batman Sixty six line. I guess you could call it or brand at Disney. Dc was based on the the old Batman TV. Show the really kind of you know cheesy one term Padam West. I was looking for and you had done a bunch of comic book things for them and all that so they kind of knew you that you knew how to to recreate that. Look in that style. Right right and You have to understand that when my parents came to America in the mid sixties in the show the TV show came out in sixty six so one of the first things I saw was that show was space goes where Saturday morning cartoon was. Dc and marvel comics on the on the spinner axe and that kind of thing and so that whole world dismayed such a huge influence in that show in particular Was just an inspiration. There was so I didn't think it was camp. I thought I was real to me. I I it was really happening and and you know looking back at the show. Now you can see. Oh Yeah it's comedic and it's well written. It's it's a well-designed Well delivered all of it in Adam. West just It was a hero for and so so that has stuck with me throughout my whole career and Getting back to how I got back into the studios thing is because at that time as Tom was saying that the had acquired the license back again or the agreement because it was a twentieth century. Fox owned Production in and but but warners owned Batman finally after so many years in to the amazement of fans and They made an agreement and they started doing all kinds of things. In one of the things was the comic books and then eventually in in. Wb animation doing an animated movies. And so when I heard that I I I ask to be on it and I got on it and I love being at Warner Brothers so much that I asked if I could stay. And that's how I stayed in ninety minutes long but six years now six well. Okay now I gotTa Brag on Ruben. A little bit because I thought you drew Disney characters. Really well right. And then I see your Warner Brothers Characters looney tunes and I'm not just talking about Batman right but I'm talking about you're looney tune characters because you've done a lot of Tom and jerry work and things like that and it is spot on it is so well drawn and so on model and like you were saying before. Probably only second to Spike Brandt who I think is probably the number one you know. Because he's been doing it for. I don't know thirty years of Warner Brothers drawing but It just amazing Senior work because again it hit me later. I didn't see until you started posting on instagram. Some of your older stuff. You've done almost ten years ago with Tom and Jerry Or six or something like that and you were reposting. Some of that and I was like. Oh my gosh I had no idea. That Ruben was animating Tom and Jerry a few years ago much less that it looked just like the old. I don't know Fred Quimby kind of amazing and use the thing I mean. This is a negative but oftentimes what happens in animation. As people stay in their niches. And this is exactly what you're talking about is that you haven't you've done so many different things but particularly cleanup artists. I hate to say it but there is kind of an you know this. I'm sure you're tends to be a negative connotation about cleanup artists that they have beautiful lines but they don't necessarily draw so well right. Have you heard that it is and I? I never liked the term cleanup and I know there was a Petition or whatever you call it back at Disney days of changing the the neighbor did nothing came up. That was worthwhile and just stayed clean. Clean Line artists or something like that or.

She started imagineering and then she went to animation and work that the air animation research library in And she had the opportunity to work with all the divisions of the company to help put books together videos together every research thing without the other part to a lot of those making of videos things that would be on the on the video and all that sure sure was very busy time for folks to know. They are l. The animation research. I houses all the artwork that we all did. Yeah and it's I mean. It's like a treasure trove of the newer stuff that we were done in the nineties and two thousands. But there's that goes back to the snow white exact archives and I. I recently took my students from You'RE GONNA be Jealous Tom. I recently got a special tour of fifteen in my students. Freshman class. Got A tour of the Air Rail Animation Research Library and they took us around for like an hour and a half and we saw Ivanhoe backgrounds from sleeping beauty. We Sell Paintings from Pinocchio and Snow White and concept drawings and Mary Blair paintings and all kinds of animation and be in the beast. Mackenzie by Ruben. Prokopiev twenty of them want him. What schools is at Lipscomb University? Zoos Pacific University go line. I program it's not look at him. I knew I knew animation research library when it was called the morgue eighty when I started if it was all underground hence calling the Damore Under the building and we used to go and check out scenes like a book. Yeah and have them in our rooms and everything of course now you got to leave with them and have him on your desk for like a week or two exactly. Well listen I started. When I was eighteen and to be able to do that it was going to school at your desk. I would check out scenes and just here are milk calls drawings or Freddie Moore's or whatever and you just put them on your animation disk and flip through now I get the walk cycle saying and now I get this tiny summation appeal and the big thing. The word appeal and I didn't understand what's appeal word with MPN and then you begin to learn. Oh it's the magic happens that when they put this all together.

So thank you for joining once again. tonight our guest is an old buddy of Tom. We worked with them at the Disney Mgm Studios in Orlando Florida. Many years ago. He works no very closely with us on Lan. He does. He's a sculptor he's an animator. He's a story board artist character designer. He just comic books Boy I'm probably forgetting to ten other things that he does because this guy wears a lot of hats except for tonight. He's not wearing a hat but here he is Rueben per Kobe. Thank you thank you for having me boy. What a juggling act as a long time coming. I mean I'm trying to think of when you and I met and I'm guessing it's before Tony Tony where you weren't even at the St on. Ruben came to dizzy jam. I think you were gone. Yeah Yeah I think you're right. I think you met him before I did. What was your first production at And the Disney. Mgm Studio Animation Studio. There it was beating the beast okay. That's yeah yes we had just. Yeah we had just wrapped up. I think it was prince and the pauper or something back home here. Don Hahn asked if I'd consider going to Florida and working with the team there and next thing you know eight years later I was still there. We're going to back up. What back up to your before all this but I I started at us right kind in the middle here a little bit or you know semi metal but What was his sales pitch? Was it like hey. They really need some help out there you know. Or what was it just that we're getting busy but they needed guidance. Gas In the in the Cleanup Department is that the pitch was you know. It's so long ago it was you know don was very eloquent. As as he is a I think that was kind of the gist of it and And very convincing. It was as a it was a hard decision for me to make because I had never left town and my family and and whatnot but Boy when I went down there with him and he introduced me to the whole crew. I just fell in love with all you guys are real quick and but it was kind of like you know what I had been doing here. in the the the that recent past where? I was doing some ahead of cleanup and and supervising clean-up kind of thing. And say you'll win. You know I had just done the cats and he says since you know the character well and and and all that and so that was that was part of the pitch you know. It's coming back to me but like quitting. Say Like in California you were like a cog in the wheel and then like you were like a superstar when you went to Florida. Ruben Ruben went from doing clean up and then got an opportunity to do the sculptures Marquette's for beauty and the beast and that was a. That was a big deal he was working with. Glenn Keen on the very first sculpture of beasts apparently went through a couple of those right as he was developing the used side by side with them later even quite finish that last one which lasts one. He's being fundament because the it's very rat. Oh yes but that was the sound that you guys it was. You know I'll tell you. What a quick little story on that As you've probably seen the his earlier model sheets The some of the drawings of the beast had a long snout. Some had a short snout some look like a bear. Look good like a bores on the lion and whatnot. So that's when the drawings I got when they asked me to sculpt them so what you guys saw eventually Ended up looking like it was not what the first sculpt was like. And you're right. It went through several days and so I had called the director's And glan and it's kind of an entourage that comes and sees it when you're ready to show off the McCann and my first pass. They had a bunch of notes and whatnot and and As they.

From Ruben on how to treat people and how to help them without abusing them even spiritually something that we can recommend our pastors our our leaders in our churches how to thank you for listening to this episode of disruptive Ad That doesn't I hope it has been helpful. We're going to give you the final word from blue. When police make picture to go to patriots dot com slash disruptive? There's a lot of content that didn't make it to the produce episode a lot of stories that have been gotta tell us especially one about reconciliation allegation that was really really good come support us get the untold stories. Maybe they'll make it at some point in time but for now they're only unpatriotic dot com so ahead on there and you know to support us and also get to listen to the unedited version of this podcast. Here's ruin with the final word. Thanks a lot for listening today. America currently has one of the highest rates in the world of domestic violence. We we have the highest rates of any what we call civilized or highly educated countries. We actually fall back in very much. I think that there's a quote that Benjamin Franklin said and some people attributed to actually King Solomon have said it. It says that justice will only be served when those who are not impacted are as outraged as those who are so to me addressing abuse needs the outrage of people who are not impacted by I think they. That's the missing voice that's needed to truly have a a zero tolerance mindset when it comes to abuse i. I think it's long overdue. I think there are a lot of people who are ready. Eddie I unfortunately I feel like there's a lot of people who are decision makers in society and in churches who who don't see this as as big problem as it is and until we do Things are going to continue Because in order to truly change this it has to start from the top. Our leadership has to be the one saying. We're I'M NOT GONNA tolerate this behavior anymore until they do and they do so openly there's always going to be perpetrators who feel comfortable because as everybody else feels comfortable talking about it and I tell that to my audience is all the time if you are uncomfortable talking about this topic those who perpetrate portrayed abused are comfortable.

If there is something that we can all agree on is that life has is two components a beautiful side filled with strolls at the park on a warm spring day a day when the lillies are blossoming and their fragrance stills bills in u courage and other desire to improve and battled difficulties of life a day. That makes you forget the disorganized rooms busy schedules and reminds you of the smiles. That people have given you on the bus or the Uber. Did you step to remember yet. The other half the one filled with evil wickedness and the scenes of the evening news during August two thousand four. I had seen the evening news with older report about war domestic abuse death and otherwise negative life experiences yet. This evening was a little bit different trend. I saw woman May Lucy and her lacerated by blood coming out of her she cried out to the police. Please help help me. I saw the scenes of a man who has own neighbors described as peaceful gentle and loving lay on the ground non fatally wounded by the police. Conscious will next to a machete with grin that I had not seen before. It wasn't anger. What I saw was the dissatisfaction of being able to the more grand? That is deeply impressed in my brain as the characteristic of an abusive men yet this abuse was so public that for the next fifteen years. I'll forget that it all starts secrecy. His neighbors were shocked walked when they learned that he had been abused for a long time and this public display of violence was only the outcome of years of domestic abuse. Today undisrupted absenteeism talk about abuse with Bruin Moody Anthon an outreach coordinator. For the family and Justice Center he starts us off with the finishing. So I think for me abuse is it can be as simple as constantly ballooning belittle somebody and then there is the upper echelon Alana of severe physical sexual abuse But a lot of people don't realize is that Just the way they treat. Somebody can be abusive especially if they have historically done that Through generations how you talk to somebody can actually be very demeaning Calling a child if you call a child stupid long enough. They'll actually believe that they are and to me. That's abusive To think that A family member has the right and authority to dictate what you do to me. That that's abusive because it infringes is on that individual's right to just be a human being Anytime anytime you take control from somebody else's life to me that's abusive live A lot of people might not see that way but to me Abuse would would on a general sense. Be Anytime you are taking something away from somebody. That should not be taken away. That should be. There's just because they're a human being definitely unexpansive unexpansive definition of abuse not just the physical repercussions of it but deeper than that. So thank you Bruin for that. But let's say that you're recognized that you may be an abusive situation or the you may be an abuser. What do you do after that so oh I think that the first thing you need to do is accept that there's a problem or identify or acknowledged the problem once he acknowledged acknowledged as a problem? you would then need to be able to identify what the problem looks like. And how it affects people You have to be able to define it clearly. There has to be a clear idea of what you're looking for Because you cannot change something that you can identify. or he can't even define so the first step is acknowledging you have a problem Then you educate on being able to identify what the problem is what characteristics it has how it impacts people and not just that the the direct victims but possibly secondary victims and we talk a lot about that when it comes to children who live in a home where there's domestic violence but they might not necessarily be directly. The impact is of. They're not the ones being physically abused but they're witnessing the abuse the fact that that actually impacts them in a very negative way So once you are able to identify all these factors then the next. That's that's when you can truly began the prevention. Because now your your you have all the tools necessary to be able to change something we think. Revenge for those steps but even then when we have all the tools necessary change may not come immediately or we may not know how to actually implemented a support system definitely can help Ruben continues telling us a story of one of the toughest cases he has worked on till date the toughest one that I saw personally was Very early on when I got hired One of the patrolmen came into building he had a female female victim with children. who was kicked out of the home by the abusive husband It was very early in the morning morning. Must have been maybe nine fifteen nine thirty in the morning So I pretty much clucking around eight thirty. So it was within an hour of me getting to work and when we let the family in It was a rainy morning Still warm so it wasn't really like super cold outside but the kids were barefoot and appease and Imam was dressed but it was obvious that the kids will either still in bed or had just gotten up and she basically came in and said I can't go back home. He's an he's not GonNa let me back home So to see the cruelty of a of someone to just be willing into throw somebody out in the middle of a rainy morning. Your kids even have shoes on their. Mpeg's and her only method of getting any help was basically calling nine one one and saying I need help. Can you take me somewhere. And they brought her to our location and because she knew she couldn't go back. It took us about a hours to figure out what we were going to do. Because most most of the shelters are always full and now we're talking about a woman and three children so it's not occupancy for one is occupancy for four it it took us a very long time just even find a shelter. I would take her and the kids because separating them that was not an option And.

Katie and i had been talking about the father. We really wanted to get luli on our respective shows and when i reached out to her she was very excited to talk to ruben. I happen to be facebook friends with him and so is actually one of those remarkably simple things things to put together. I just dropped him align. He wrote back really quickly and only needed to do is find an engineering gothenburg pretty straightforward. Rice is our first time working in gothenburg. It's it's also lulus first time on the show we are of course big fans of her new movie. The farewell yet it's a great movie was one of this at a standup films sundance and go picked up by a twenty four and had a really strong showing at the box office this summer yeah i got to be one of the lucky people who watched it roll out over the course of the summer since they no longer live the new yorker l. a. and it just opened in my town a couple of weeks ago at the local art house watching other audiences discovered after these weeks and months of discussions in sundance. It just felt like such a wonderful all summer gift and i love it when a twenty four particular has had a good track record of bringing us he's excellent indies in the middle of summer kind of just what we need the most yeah so. This is lily second second film. She directed the two thousand fourteen. Maybe posthumous but this is really her breakout movie. It's a really smart and sweet and sensitive movie for people who don't have it on their radar already. Not this is a movie based on lewis personal experience about her going to china to visit her grandmother when she's terminally ill. The movies hook is that nobody's telling the grandmother mother that she is terminally. Ill and it's about saying goodbye when you're not actually allowed to say goodbye went there is that decision to withhold the information and it's it's really beautifully beautifully made film and you know when lulu is talking to remain in the conversation we recorded. She talks about the the drama of not having drama of not having those big moments which i think is really fascinating thing yeah and something else. I think she didn't talk about is what i think is. Such a powerful aspect of the farewell is a very specific story at set in china. It's about the chinese family. It's about what's apparently a <unk> a fairly common thing in china where you might not tell an elderly relative that they're dying but if you'll so universal it feels like you're kind of inserting yourself right within this family and i know so many people who've just recognize as part of themselves and their families and maybe grandparents in the farewell which i think is why it's a powerful film and why it's doing so well at the box office absolutely knows definitely universe on it was really cool to here ruben talk about him relating to the film so strongly in it's you know as somebody who is from a very different background now he's a swedish director his major movies or force measure and square which one the pomodoro a canon twenty seventeen and i went onto the oscar nominated for best foreign language film and <hes> you know he said one of the titans of the new european art cinema his new movie that he is currently in pre production on his gold triangle sadness and about the fashion industry and that's the thing that can make anybody happy to hear <unk> a type like that. I think that is going to be excellent yeah when i saw force majeure it's another one of those movies. That's about a different country. It set in his native country sweden but it's this family drama basically about this one moment where a father and a family just as this horrific cowardly thing and all the repercussions that come from and it's really funny but also really dark and really just kind of like frank about the nature of humanity and it's really exciting. It's being remade with fairly julia louis dreyfuss in the starring roles that might tell you something about the universality of that story and how exciting you might be transferred to different actors yeah. That's going to be really fascinating. I think you know the square was to me. One of the most interesting films in two thousand seventeen is sort of like landed in large totally out there but also really smart and intellectually very adventurous and and as you'll hear in this conversation he's really really thoughtful guy and they talk about some pretty pretty profound. I love the fact that they managed to talk about sort of big ideas ideas but in a way that's like really engaging and entertaining in the same time yet the theme that i really saw run through this conversation was how important it is to step out of binary lyari thinking how important it is to step away from false dichotomies yeah absolutely i mean you know one of the things that lou talk about is the problem of when you have a particular identity entity when you're telling a story people saying four something are you against it you know because she is emerged as one of the most important asian american filmmakers of generation with this movie <hes> you know people wanna pin her down to like. Are you pro china. Are you anti-china you pro this or you're against that and it's you know reality and stories are are not black and white. They're not one thing or the other and one of the really nice moments of this conversation is ruben talks about the role that cinema plays in our lives which is kind of a back the way that we have discussions and i thought that was really fascinating. We also hear about the way these complex questions are tackled in the media and how the internet turns us into shitty people as which which is i think is an inter connecting subject matter to me yeah you can't blame them for thinking of that but how social media ruins people but you also think about the power social media for spreading worried about the farewell and then also force majeure in this great before that <hes> which i you know any indie filmmakers definitely aware of that so it's a real <hes> catch twenty two the thing you hate also bring. We need success. It was so fascinating to hear how people in sweden think ruben's movies are so heavy and dark and how the rest of the world actually thinks they're comedies ladies. We also get to hear what lou and her boyfriend barry jenkins kick back and watch when they're wanting to watch something a little less serious and then there's also lose response to what happened when she was told by some american bro to go back to japan. She's a small lady but fierce indeed sure on the tape with run the tape hybrid. How are you can you how are you. I'm good. I'm good. I'm so excited to talk to you. We didn't meet directly but sort of in passing a few years ago ago. When my boyfriend is very jenkins he presented your award. Okay yeah cool but really nice to talk to you and thank you so much. You know i requested. They asked me who i would like to speak to you and i said of course ideally it would be <hes> ruben but nobody told me that you had agreed and i just found out yesterday so i'm very very excited. <hes> your work is a huge inspiration for me. Thank you so much. I'm in of i heard people talking about and then when i am necas. Send me your name and then of course i would like to do that so i yeah i think i <hes> i like to set up this format to directors talking to each other so i'm curious if we will get to any interesting continents. Hopefully i have a lot of questions. I would like to start actually because i i watched <hes> last night. I got linked quite late but <hes> it's on last night and i would like to say thank you so much for the movie. I thought it was interesting because i could relate very much the story even if i don't have any neil that kind of background was very touching and i think i related to it goes my mother comes from the northern part of sweden so she's he's brought up in hop around <hes> that is quite far away from where i was brought up in india to boring number going to west coast of sweden but i could really relate to like your parents leaving china and moving and growing up in another country and i would say that my mother i've always felt a little bit you know almost misplaced that that against something about her that she said she would move back when she got older and so on but then i'd have kids and she was staying here in just bored with me <hes> because of the grandchildren of course but i had a similar similar experience when i met my grandfather last time that was really really beautiful portrayed in your film when you were when you were leaving in the car and the last asked <hes> limbs or say of of your grandmother was in honda <hes> with my daughters and i realize this is probably the last time i would see my grandfather <hes> <hes> since i don't don't visit up under that often and we were leaving in a car you know like we were saying goodbye at the entrance entrance of the door and and getting into the car and i could see that even he he had such a problem on walking he would stand up and look through the window to kitchen window oh and tried to get a last glimpse of us and it was so touching and when i saw it was striking me immediately in the same way too that you portrayed a synonym so so thank you for that thank you well yeah it is. It's so hard in a way like they. They wanna have a last glimpse but if there's also the sense of dignity of <hes> you know as a human being like wanting to stand wanting to come downstairs wanting to say goodbye and <music> holding on as as much as possible like people have told me that in in their experience they've experienced something similar where you know their grandmother grandfather also will like touched the car as is driving away so it's <hes> it's it's so interesting to hear that immigration in this sense of distance and ms placement. It's it's not just as extreme as <hes> an emigrant from china moving to the united it states. I think that you know as the world is getting bigger getting smaller in many ways that everyone senses this kind of displacement because we're not growing up and all living you know multiple generations in the same town my parents history of my family and y you know we move for mostly political reasons. My father came to the u._s. to study to get his p._h._d..

"They, it's only. Sailing? See, but. Time now for Ruben Fernandez, you know, I got so many emails saying why wasn't moving on last week? We were so excited. We were gonna make that the greatest show in history all time you would have been the goat of doing the radio. Yeah. Data by myself, right? Let's do have someone that wants to come in and do it with me. Yeah. We could probably get four or five people in here if you can get ten, I don't care parade him in, but you would have to sit in this seat, and bring the show in take the show out and control. What goes on Peter? What's our phone number? I know what the phone number the, you know, while I'd have to write it down that Tim k you can have notes you can put Notre low over the place. Peter, we've been trying to get Ruben to do the show by himself and last week Dana, and I wrote not here. So we had to cancel the show, but two weeks ago on the show, we said, if you want Ruben to do it, send emails Facebook calls, we had in how many minutes three minutes, you know, half a dozen plus people that said, please Ruben Ruben Ruben Ruben was fans have spoken. They have spoken and they would help them. They were like, hey, the Willie been will help you through call. We'll have conversations. We'll talk to you. I just wanted them on. They wanted them today. Line would be great. You know he could do a market by the decades. Seriously? I've been talking about forty seven. He was going to talk about all. Back in the forty eighties. Just bring in that chart that, you know, the wallow worry that's got. But tell stories tell the story book, it'd be like, storytime with Ruben, two hours would have gone so fast. I've kind of putting it together in my mind. It's going to happen. I guarantee you before the end of two thousand nineteen this is happening. Could you could even call Peter if hit an extra story or to all right? All right now, can we get on December thirty first is that it's Sunday. I'm probably not. Maybe it's not, not the sheriff scratched that idea yet. Letter of the day. That's the. The ladder lab..

"I wouldn't oppose it the best thing about the country legal immigrants people come legally weights. But here, here's what's not the best thing for the country. Millions of people here illegally right now, some of whom are killers, and rapists, that's not good for the country. So if you're going to say, all right you migrate there. Six thousand of you or whatever you come on in. And this would be impossible, by the way, we're going to adjudicate every single one of you in the asylum category. Okay to possible, but you come on in what do you think three weeks from? Now, you're going to have you going to have another. Ten thousand or one hundred thousand. Yeah. Okay. You know that once word is out that you can get in here. Millions of people are gonna come for asylum. Ruben everette. Okay. With that. I think this are people who are interviewed on this trail who are coming on this caravan who say that have kids up here, they're reuniting their family. They don't need a welfare magnet. They're coming because the family legally, if you have people in the country, you are placed at the head of the line, you know, that on the legal immigration front, but it's not your right as a Honduran citizen to say, hey, I got a cousin that lives near Ruben Navarette, and I'm going to go in and I don't really care what the law is look Ruben the bottom line on. This is I believe the immigration laws have to be changed the asylum laws to be changed the babies that are born here. And automatically our citizens have to be changed the border structure. Has to be changed. I believe that we should have common sense immigration, but I don't want anarchy. And I disagree with you in the five thousand troops at the border will stop this current migration care. You bet you the most expensive dinner in Miami that they will stop it. Because there's no way they're going to get through to the ports a call. Okay. Another wave of take that dinner bet. They'll be they'll be more coming right? Ruben keep keep up the dialogue. And we always appreciate talking to you. Thank you very much..

"Let me put you to the test Ruben. Let's say you say yes to this, they've made you a financial offer. You don't have to say it, but you know what the number is. Correct. We're not quite there yet. Okay. Well, okay, even more. So let's say that it's a very attractive number and I want you to say, okay, they give us a really attractive number that raises my browse and then I want you to think if they do what they say they're gonna do and you stay around for a little bit, but then eventually you're out if you get the number that makes you really excited. But you know that it's possible that they push you out at some point in the near future, and you are just left with the number and memories. Are you going to be okay with that? I think that's what Christie simply it's really shining and it should be shiny. I think there's a lot of shot, but let me ask you what you want is that you are you cool with that. Yours for you would be cool with that. Yes, I think I would be. Okay. Then you know. Hey, you gotta go with your gut on the and that's the thing is like in business, we would love for there to be an absolute formula that says, this is always right. This is always wrong. There's black and white and there. Certainly some of that, but a lot of times business owners were making value call. There's going to be risky the way either way you're going to take on risk of, okay, I'm going to sell it and then I'm out like I'm out forever. I'm giving up this baby. I'm giving up ownership to what the growth could be in the next three to five to fifteen years, or you could stay with it and you like men. There was a risk where I gave up that awesome offer the shiny thing. So that's the thing in business. You're really asking Ruben think of value decision of what you want. What's in line with your goals? Where do you want to be in three years? Do you want to be sitting dreaming about something new with that awesome amount in your Bank.
