Formless and Void with Nancy Guthrie
"Episode we talked about what was happening before the beginning. If we can talk about before the beginning last time we were in genesis and we talked about Trinidadian relationships before the beginning. So we kinda stopped and paused there but the verse continues in the beginning God he does something and he says he creates the heavens and the earth, and so let's just before. We get to one to Let's stop there God creates the heavens and the earth. So when we're talking about this work of creation in the heavens, the earth what is being distinguished here because the days are going to go on to detail this, and so what does it mean to start with? God created the heavens the earth before we get to without form and void. What does that mean? God creates everything that a good place to start is having the earth just a general designation for. The is it. The raw material? Is that everything that exists before I mean what is has the earth one thing I would say it's what we can see and what we can't see. So the visible creation, the invisible creation. Yeah. So I mean one, we can look we this may be connecting back to our last episode a little bit of talking about some concentric circles and who got his before creation, his father son, and Holy Spirit and Trinidadian relations in creation redemption salvation is we can see that when God creates the heavens and the Earth Paul speaking of a similar theme when he's talking about the incentive of Christ in Colossians chapter one when he says he is the image of the invisible God. So this God who existed before creation in he is the first born of all creation he is Eternally Begotten Son. For by him, all things were created in heaven and on Earth visible and invisible whether thrones or dominions or rulers aurthorities all things created through him and for him. So Paul here is taking this genesis one in into Meta theme of creation that God existed before all things that he is Osei distinctive himself father son and Holy Spirit, but the sun is participating with the father in creation by. The Holy Spirit is the one who is through whom all things are coming into being well as part of this part of maybe even some confusion around how to read. This would be that heaven is used in a different way. There's different ways that heaven or heavily language it's deployed in the Bible and you see it even here in Genesis One, you have the heavens as the expanse meaning probably. The visible sky or what's sometimes called the Firma you have the heavenly places is sometimes what we may be closer to thrones or dominions the spiritual, the unseen realm, and then you have sometimes what is called just heaven which would be the place of benevolent presence the place where God, rules and rain. So Heaven language is is a little bit confusing because I think a lot of times the average reader of the Bible just things about heaven as the place you go when you die but the guy, the guy the heavenly yes Harps and angels and clarifies say wait. You're working against a lot sometimes. Is. Very wispy word in the mind. So but it doesn't stop there God creates the heavens and the earth, but it says something specific about the earth. It says the earth was without form and void and darkness was over the face of the deep and the spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters now I have to tell you. As an early reader of the book of Genesis, this was absolutely confounding to me. Because, you don't even think about like when you hear the story of creation when it gets put on the Flannel Board and Sunday school, you go right to the days this part not on the table. Not. Imagine what it would look like, right? Right right. The face of the deep and formless and void, and so what is happening here? Why is this a part of the story? What are we to learn from this verse when it comes to first God's creative act in action in the world what's happening here? So. He speaks. All of creation into being and it is this uninformed matter. And I've come to see this is actually a beautiful thing that this is here I get what you're talking about about like it i. Don't know about this I think mainly because we think so much about creation it was made perfection. And so but we're seeing in the second verse of the Bible. There's actually three problems with creation as it was originally spoken into being. You mentioned it. There's a, there's this formless snus. And then there's this void or emptiness. and. Then there's darkness. But of course, you didn't complete versed to. Because there's also hope right right that this spirit is hovering over the these dark waters and we realized, okay, God is at work and he is doing something good i. think it just goes against our instincts. We we've had it. So ingrained into us that the original creation was perfect that to introduce the idea that that the earth wasn't just spoken into being perfect that the work God did and and I would say even. Even even when we see what we continue to see in genesis one that. What God spoken to being we need to think of the original creation, not in terms of perfection, but in terms of potential. Because we're gonNA, see God do a work in the rest of Genesis one in terms of bringing form to the formless snus and filling the emptiness and illuminating the darkness. But even then it's not quite yet perfection they're still it's still potential.

In September, moving forward L. A county fire spokesman Sky, Cornell says.

You can leave in your will. Democrats are pointing to the fact that Republicans didn't want to replace the justice during the 2016 election. Republicans are pointing to the fact that Democrats did, including RBG yourself, who said no president should put off a confirmation during an election because the law is the law. The Constitution says it's perfectly legal for Republicans. Put the word justice because voters gave them the power to do it, just like voters gave them the power to deny a confirmation in 2016.

Inside Jimmy Butlers Psyche
"Nick for Dell I WANNA start in a very important place here. The question that everyone I think is obsessing about at this point in the NBA playoffs. What the Hell is going on with this coffee business that Jimmy Butler is running. Twenty Bucks Cup twenty bucks it is some high level stuff from everybody who has had had a taste of big face coffey. Why is this guy selling coffee? Why is this happening because he can Pablo Nick Fidel is a staff writer for ESPN WHO's been covering Jimmy Butler ever since he entered the League in two thousand eleven this guy brought a French press with him into the bubble because he wanted to make sure that he had the very best coffee that there was. So in true entrepreneurs style. Jimmy is charging twenty bucks a pop cash only as he's said repeatedly. Last couple of months to teammates or whoever else wants the show up and and give them some money because I can't get coffee nowhere here that's my bump it up to thirty bucks a cup just depends people here can afford it. So anybody complaining. Through the years it's only the best for Jimmy, Butler on a lot of levels in in the coffee is the latest example of that. So we're GONNA take a deep dive with you into Jimmy Butler today but let's start with the most recent stuff because they're coming off this Saturday night loss against the Celtics they still have a two one series lead game four is Wednesday night but on Saturday night in game three, the heath tendency to get behind early finally did catch up with them and in the final minute when they're flirting with yet another potential comeback. We saw Mr. big face coffey himself sitting on the bench. Usually, in these situations, look beyond the floor and I don't know of Jimmy Barbara asked out or injury does not back in the defensive possession. Especially Butler. Meeting offense who In the same reasoning behind. So. What was going on there? Eric's bolster said flat out that. He's fine. There wasn't an issue. Babo I've watched Jimmy Butler. For years and years to take him off the Florida eighty point is a struggle because of how bad he wants to be out there but to take him off the floor at the end of a playoff game. I just wondering if if there's something lingering that we should all keep an eye on but. In fairness the Spoelstra he did have a bunch of shooters on the floor, and I, know Jimmy has hit some big three's over the course of the playoff bubble the last few weeks but that is not a strength of his game. So maybe everybody is telling the truth and maybe Jimmy's GonNa be fine but my Jimmy radar went off at the end of that game big time because you you just can't take him out he wants to be in there until the very, very end. So. Certainly, certainly something to keep an eye on. That is absolutely something to monitor, but prior to all that happening game three nick in this series, and in these playoffs, the Miami Heat have been surprisingly impressive as a five seed. They're currently ten and two in the playoffs, and with this two to one lead, they still have over the Celtics. Their hands are still on the steering wheel and the one guy steering all of it. The one guy at the center of these comebacks gave them that lead is Jimmy Butler. So. When we look at Butler's clutch moments so far. Which one stick out to you. WHO As far as Jimmy in this series. Those first few shots. Down, the stretch in game one. Everybody's focused on Bam's block and it really is one of the best there's ever been. Sky. With the block and rejection. That is a ridiculous defensive play. Aside. From that, you're watching. Pablo. Early in those games especially in the first one, they're just throwing body after body after body. Jimmy. And in the fourth quarter, he's making tough shot after tough shot. Shot Praise God Jimmy Butler giving Miami the lead with twenty two seconds to go. Butler against Tatum drives them Deep Pang. Shot up and then and one Jimmy Puckett's delivering again, twelve seconds to go over time you start seeing steals and gave to your like there's no way in the world that he would have won that game without him poked away by Jimmy Butler all the way down the other end Butler leaves it and crowder puts it in Jimmy Butler in the last four minutes delivering for the heat. Heroes made some shots and and drag it has been there over and over but it's Jimmy who is setting the tone.

I'm Having Boundary Issues With My Parents
"Scott is with us. In Atlanta Georgia, Hi Scott what's up man? Hello Dave a doctor Doni Personal Dave. Congratulations Faculty is such a great addition to the lineup. We'll thank you we agree. Brother Scott and your check in the mail rather. All right waiting for that since I'm on. Right, now, so anyway, to my question my wife and I like I said, we're on baby step two. We've got a ways to go currently cash flowing kids through college my parents who are eighty years old never saved for retirement They've I called in last. Ti- last year You help me guys guide through bailing my parents out of a financial prices and then you send them through FPU and set them up with a financial coach they fully completed both and you also sent me boundaries which I read. last month, they called me to tell me not ask me that they needed need to co-sign a loan for them because my mom wants cosmetic surgery, they can't afford. At eighty though. Yeah. I don't even WANNA ask Ya. Yeah I I could make it exciting but it's It has to do with dental work. So I told them I was not going to dismiss the principles I live by to enable their behavior especially after they have sensibly learn the same thing. I did anyway my birthday was August thirtieth it came and went without a caller card. My father now spends time posting passive aggressive stuff on facebook about how children are supposed to treat their parents. Now I know I'm right by co-signing. And I'm not sure from a relationship standpoint what I'm supposed to do here I wouldn't let them starve or be thrown out on the streets but this is a want not a need. we're all angry obviously one of us who's right. But we're at astounding. Hurt, so bad I'm sorry. Ask got hate that for your brother. So. Here's the deal when it comes to what's the right thing to do financially of course, you know that you're right men when it comes to the right thing to do relationship of course, you know you don't need validation but you're right you drew a boundary that was best for you and for your family and you held them to it and I'm proud of you for that and you're getting to see what the other side of a boundary looks like when Someone Ping's off your the walls or the fences or the boundaries you drew and they choose to react immaturely and the hard part. Is You love your parents. You Love Your Mom you love your dad individually and together, and they're choosing to make their own path as adults are able to do, and that hurts in that stinks and you're going to have to grieve that But the reality is there eighty they're allowed to do whatever they want to do and I would suggest you turn off facebook and don't listen to the nonsense and you continue to be mature and you continue to be adult and yes, you send them cards on their birthday because children honor their parents and you make sure they are included when it's appropriate but. You'RE GONNA have to grieve this part of man because I just stinks. I'm sorry. Hey, for the only the only recompense you've got this, there's only one kind of a relationship that requires money to be transferred. It's called prostitution. And so if your relationship is money dependent. You're in that class. You don't have a relationship in other words. Because that's not a relationship that's a transaction agreed. I agree and so. I'm just saying it's the only way you're. You have to get your brain around Oslo. It's chapter two. I believe maybe one even in boundaries. That says you're not crazy. Remember that chapter. You're not crazy you because when you get this paying off the boundary, John described it. What you start to feel is is that you're crazy like you did something wrong I, a- bad son and my being a legalist being too hard core and so forth, and it's like No. Sky You're just asking how to deal with this. Well. Yeah. I, mean nobody wants to pick up the phone at this point. In so here's the deal call men and check in how's everybody doing. You can be the mature grown-up when there and if they choose to respond in immature ways, then then you can begin to develop new boundaries against that. The challenge with boundaries is we feel so good and we finally draw and we forget that boundaries do have consequences and boundaries do have emotional and feeling you know responses and sometimes people don't respond well to our boundaries and it hurts boundaries when someone feels like they're boundaries, me someone feels like they're entitled to something of yours that they're not entitled to. And you tell them that. Almost, always, there's a response of anger but I think we get so excited that we're drawn boundary that we feel good and we do it and it's like. We forget that tim be up against it and say, well, then you're not my son I, don't love you or if I really do cocaine and the living room. Dad Than I just won't let you be my dad if you're going to throw me out for doing that. I'm sorry we don't do cocaine. We're living room or it's going to be your fault that my. Kids are GONNA fill in the right. So people get to respond to that going to respond grandchildren are going to be hungry because of you because of you giving this thirty six year old without job for two and a half years any money you know this kind of thing and so your it's your fault. Somehow it's not your fault man I'm it does hurt when. It does breaks your heart, and so but I agree with John I mean just call them and have a conversation but here's the thing. Don't try to call them and fix it now doesn't fix they can't they're not there's no fixing this they're just going to get over it or not. Yeah I. Always want to encourage people to be mature party respectful party the relational party, but also protect yourself. Don't keep putting yourself in harm's way. For Scott.

Smoke starting to clear out; Seattle air quality improving
"Turning to the weather. Tonight, some people in western Washington are finally getting a breath of fresh air. Because the air quality is improving across the Puget Sound region. Check out this map from the state Department of Ecology. It shows the air quality in our area improving ranging from good To unhealthy for sensitive groups. Let's get over to Shannon O'Donnell Mohr Rain this weekend, Shannon and what a breath of fresh air literally right so nice to see it. We've got our smoke cleaner at this point rolling through. It started last night. It continues right now, The biggest left over. Part of this is going to be the heavy rain at times. It's not the drizzle. We had a couple of days ago that just served a soap that smog you later make it sticky. This is the real deal that will help clean things out. Also the important factor the wind. We needed something to stir something up. So you can see that's happening out there tonight as well. With the breeze picking up the chance for lightning and hail, which had been pretty dominant here earlier in the game has lifted for the most part, everything settling down. You can see that we have a couple of slightly heavier showers, but nowhere near to the intensity we did earlier this evening. Most of those around Montesano and then back between two common Olympia. You've really had some heavy rain there around like still coming back toward DuPont Lacey into the north and also a pocket of leftover heavier showers around Stanwood and Camino Island. Those continue to wind down to so often on showers here for the hour by hour forecast that will take us past midnight and into this last weekend of summer. I'll let you know if that summer blue sky and sunshine will return in the rest of my forecast

The Macrocosm and Microcosm in People and Plants
"Hey everybody say Jay here and welcome to part two in our alchemy and herbalism series, and in last week's video, I was sharing with you how you know throughout history as science kind of became more of the dominant world view. We see this kind of mechanistic. And really kind of stripping the spirit and the meaning out of cultures and systems and traditions, how that affects our perspective of people and plants, and really ultimately our practice of herbal medicine in how alchemy is this incredibly potent in sophisticated system and tradition that allows us to bring those two together. But how exactly does alchemy do that? Right? How does alchemy unite the science and the spirituality of herbal medicine? Well, that's what I WANNA talk about a little bit more in this week's issue in this series and talking about one of the core, the really the Philosophical Foundation of alchemy. As I mentioned last week you know everything in this tradition is about coming to a balance of philosophy and practice right that there's a certain way of looking at and understanding the world around us and kind of the fundamental pattern of nature that is the philosophy of Alchemy, and then we want to do something with it. Right. We want to practically apply that philosophy and that ultimately becomes the practice right which really to me the the kind of. Quintessential practice of alchemy really comes down to medicine, right it comes down to preparing medicine as well as administering medicine. So there's kind of a the herbal pharmacy side of things and the therapeutic side of things, which is I'm going to be talking about in part three and part four of the series but I we gotta get solid in understanding. This core, really the core philosophy of Alchemy and I think it summarized very nicely in the age old adage that I'm sure you've heard before as above. So below and this is really a pretty old saying But what does it really mean right as above so below well, really. What that means is that Really the whole end, the part are connected right that the V above the cosmos, the the great pattern of the natural world and creation the above or what traditionally is referred to as the macrocosm is mirrored in the microcosm in individual species that the whole in the part are ultimately one that the the whole is within the part and the part is a facet of the whole, and this is a really profound teaching that I remember you know I. I learned about this in my early twenties and it was just totally blew my mind I was like, wow, like the whole universe is inter connected and everything is one and everything is in this. Grand web of interrelatedness, and that's really profound and mind-blowing. I don't know to do with that. Right it was kind of like it was the philosophy made a lot of sense but it wasn't until I. You know really got into alchemy that I realized. Wow. They're actually taking this very profound understanding of the world and then applying it in really profound ways that that is helpful. Right in the way that it heals people and helps people in in a medicinal context. So, we have this dynamic of the macrocosm in the microcosm and as above. So below and really in Alchemy the the center of that philosophy is really this understanding that. Nature is not chaos. Nature is not random that there is an underlying order to the cosmos within which we live and within the underlying order, there's a certain. Pattern there's a pattern to creation. There's a pattern to life that there's a rhythm to the you know the way the seasons turn and the way that the stars are placed in the sky and the way that the planets orbit around the sun and the way that plants grow in the way the water cycle is in the way you know everything about nature occurs accordingly to these natural. Laws to this underlying kind of cosmology and fundamental order of the universe, and that really is what their understanding of the macrocosm is
Secular Strategies for Politics
"I'm joined in studio, the One and only Sarah Eleven. God I haven't heard that name in a long time. It's so great to be back. Gosh and it's weird. It's our first time in studio. Yes. You've done a actually come a little closer. You've done a lot of stuff with me, but it's always been over the phone would call in like every week back in the day and the old the old dogma debate days don't even call the show that anymore. but it's like. You've been so active in the political scene and it's funny that there's there are a lot of new people listen to the show now, who have no idea who you are, and then are some of the old school people who were like Sarah. Seeing a long lost cousin. Great. So have you been first and foremost good really well, I just moved to Los. Angeles. So. Thank you. Welcome to the fires and small quakes. It's so disappointing. The first week it was clear skies as beautiful and we were like Oh man we're going to go get our beach tent and and all this stuff, and then it's like now now it's. Hazy skies and it's really depressing and you know I sound like a very privilege right now. Go to the beach. The opposite effect for me the first six weeks I lived here it was rainy and cold, and it was like. I know it was six weeks straight in everybody everywhere I would go they would always go. It's never been like this. We don't know what's happening like it's never been like this I'm going. Yeah. Right and then sure enough it went seven months without raining or something it was gorgeous seventy five degrees every day for nine months out of the year or something, and then it rains again and I'm like, what's this falling on my car? This is bizarre. It is really is really rare that something like this happens, but it's that's what they said about. The last weekend were like this is the hottest weekend and all of all of the year and my place doesn't have air conditioning because it usually doesn't need it most people here that and they're like, why do you not have air conditioning? There are a lot of people go out here a little bit north of Hollywood. So where I am it's common to have AC but down actually on the beach, most people don't because it's like. Seventy S. Literally. Just crack window open your door in. It's fine. but last weekend. Right here where I am I say you a screen shot at one hundred seventeen degrees right here at this spot for you. It was one twenty-one. Few miles away. I can't even imagine one, hundred seventeen. I actually walked outside just to see what it was like literally like an oven it is. You just don't want to do anything used. and. I'll say it's still not as bad as like ninety six degrees in Texas. Because of the humidity humidity, you could take a shower and get out of the TUB and you're sweating and you feel disgusting. It is actually a swamp people forget. Reason more than one reason why it's So let's get into that. They remember you from a different organization. We don't have to dive into all of that, but you are now Founder and principal founder. If you wanted to say with or what, but you're now the founder of secular strategies. So let's get into a little bit of what that means because. I think more than ever. We need that right now just the name it says so much talk about what you do, what you were going to Asians. Sure. So you know I'm I'm really kind of like a meat and potatoes doer and always have been I'm I'm really most interested in just getting things done and getting them done as effectively in strategically as possible and I one of the inspirations for me to start my own company to work with. Clients focused on religious freedom separation of church and state was and you were part of this right in Texas in two thousand sixteen. When we got the secular caucus running that is now totally a pre- pretty much self reliant fundraising for themselves. I would say we spent maybe. A total of like five thousand dollars investing in that in that whole event and that that startup period and. Now, four years later that organization has you know a chair Vice Chair secretary treasurer is raising money got a resolution pass in two local counties van in conversion therapy in Texas. That is and more endorsing candidates. Remember correctly was was that the first ever secular caucus for advancement convention I gave a talk at that. I spoke. I Yeah I remember I remember being able to like I was just I got to say that I got to give a talk at the first ever everyone that's huge. Yeah and now they're like fully functioning. Yeah and now there's one in Nebraska just got one stood up in Florida. So they're they're secular Democrats of Florida and I'm working on. Virginia Colorado And Kentucky now, and we'll get into that in a second but I go back to twenty sixteen when I talk about what I'm doing today because from my perspective. That is one of the highest return on investment projects I have ever done.

Perspective I may know Hosa and I'm who you're a low and welcome to in the thick live from home I mean I had to commute from one bedroom to another to get here but I'm here on time.

But you know the pandemic happened, a lot of sadness happened a lot of rage happened, and so we're going to be virtual. We're talking about the twenty twenty election along with the letter other things including the POC vote. And you know it's really super important. So just because we're not out there in person doesn't mean we don't have to have these conversations and you know gymnasts we got to all stars tonight to all-stars please give workers.

All right. Let's give a poop roof to. Elite. Contributing opinion writer with the times and he's He's not live from the suburbs from Alexandria where we crazy.

My home state burning I'm trying to come back to you guys new. York. One piece. Hey. Guess Co host to of in the thick, not only all stars but they've they've guest cohost. So awesome that you guys just say I was thinking about this this podcast years ago and we called so much of what's happening in America right nine we actually have the records to prove it just like the audio records of trump. We have the records to prove that we called a lot of this four years ago two, thousand, sixteen I feel like it's five because I've aged horrible fifty. In our minds in two thousand fifteen but it came to fruition in two, thousand, sixteen but. But. Yeah we did we and one of the things that we talked about which we all have talked about is the role of the media and how you guys are getting it wrong in. So many ways we talk about that but let's start off with our first topic so. It was twenty twenty. I think. You know every single one of us is battling some level of low grade or high-grade. Depression? You know he's just kind seeping in for me. The end of the summer is really hard moving into yet another season and still being in lockdown You know also just the weight of these decades, centuries of racism and injustice in this country. and that is kind of the backdrop for our twenty twenty-nine election update. We are now less than sixty days away from the November election I know, right so both the trump and binding campaigns are really upping their games. We think, right. We'd Hoke we know the Republicans are the Democrats. This election season but hey, the pandering has started as well. I don't know if guys have seen this actually was one of the first people notified about this campaign video by by Joe Biden people that are associated with the Joe. Biden campaign it's a campaign salsa song called. Biden. Muscles. Things. Just just. Coming off. Applaud keeps going. By. By then? Okay. Okay. Okay. So Oh God that's going to be playing all over Kissimmee Florida. I'm telling you they're going all in I know the people that created it. Very committed they just basically put Biden on the hook for that stuff right there. Yeah ecological in. Los Angeles. Off The detention facility. So his own campaign song is saying he's about to do that. Yeah. So and then the other thing I just wanted to add. Yaas who Maria interviewed. And frontline, we talk about this I think all the time you know the Obama deportation policy she was named to the transition team of Biden's campaign and all the immigrants, rights, activists, immigrant lawyers that I know I know you guys have been following. This are just there's a story in the hill people need to read it. They are up in arms about destroy. So there's a lot of questions about the Democrats right. Right it's it's yours to lose and I have nothing personally against Cecilia when yours But I did interview her and it was a moment that was very challenging Was You know? Talk me down 'cause right now I'm feeling like the. Vote. We are combined this immense electorate and it's like. Are you kidding me twenty twenty? I've been talking about this since the first time I covered politics in what in the early nineteen nineties. POC voters taken for granted.
Mars in Opposition
"Wadham to astronomy, cast our weekly facts based journey through the cosmos where we help you understand not only what we know. But how we know what we know I'm Fraser Cain publisher, of Universe today and with me as always Dr Pamela Gay a senior scientist for the Planetary Science Institute and the Director of Cosmic Quest Pamela. Welcome back from Summer Hiatus I missed you. Thank you. I've missed you too although I have to say it feels like we're like experiencing march. Two. Hundred instead of September at this point time has meaning it doesn't it really has no meaning. Yeah. Yeah. It's a it's a it's a snake in a circle eating its own tail. Made of everything nothing at the same time. I don't know whether I'm coming or going. The days just blur and yet time just takes forever. When do I get my vaccination? You are you are you on I was thinking about this really want to do what I want to go places and see people. That's what I do. To to have gone from having that amazing experience in January where we were together in Hawaii for the W. S meeting. And towards the end of that meeting, we were starting to talk about the news about this strange illness in China and remember the Thursday night on. Talking with a couple of my friends at the conference about. Just want to get home before the illness makes it to Hawaii. And I had no idea that. Nine mice be earlier. Still Yeah, no I guy I had my suspicions but. In. And now I you know we do feel like we're closing in now on the final stretch that more and more vaccines are coming into into the final stage of trials, and there's going to be some kind of roll out but I really hope that that herd immunity will start to get kicked in and we can start to see the end of this hopefully during this season. So we will we will and herd immunity from. Thanks. From getting sick. So we will. Exceed the end of it during the season and. Regular life will return. This season fourteen, our show is major and I feel that having a very cranky year is consistent with going through our teenage ness. Thank you bye-bye. Now this is. All right, every two years or so Mars lines up nicely with the earth it takes only two minutes to communicate with the Rovers. You could see the polar ice caps in a small telescope and it's the best time to send your spacecraft to the Red Planet and also I. Guess. It Mars opposition. Between Your horoscope your Mars horoscope is really good that other works. Maybe, that's Mars in retrograde. That none lucky time. They can happen at the same time whereas in retrograde and an opposition. Yeah. That's true. All right. So so so we're going to talk about how Mars and opposition is a really like the best time for Mars that's Mars really takes over the night sky and shows us what it's got but. Why is Marzano Position? So technically, it is that moment in time when you have the sun, the earth and Mars precisely lined up so that at midnight on earth. Mars is at its highest possible point in our terrestrial sky and if you were to look at it from space. Walk. Would they look from above you're looking down on the solar system and you're looking at? Earth Mars and the sun what would you see? Align they're just nicely in a line. And There's some years where because Mars orbit is a lot more elliptical than earth orbit that we are noticeably closer. There's some years that were noticeably farther apart of back in two thousand and three. There's a lot of Hoopla because we were than. We'd been in hundreds of years would be for another hundred some odd year. He was fifty thousand years was the closest yet had been. Two Thousand and three. And at these closest points, we are more than twenty million miles closer than we are during opposition when Mars is at its far points. So there is a substantial difference, but in the grand scheme of things. Mars is still smaller than allows to see it as a desk without. Really good binoculars or a telescope. So but just to give just to give people a sense of perspective, I mentioned this the beginning of the show it takes two light minutes to communicate with Mars just over two minutes right now we'll win Mars you not position until you can. You know you send your beep boop commands to your over and you're over goes beep boop and sends back it's commands and it's just like you're playing a video game with. Fairly reasonable times, but when Mars is. Old Dial up modem exactly. An Internet game what it gets worse right on average the a the time to transmit to Mars is about twelve and a half minutes and at the very worst when Mars is on the opposite side of the Sun It's twenty minutes. So if you want to send some piece of information to Mars, you've got to wait twenty minutes for the message to get there and then twenty minutes to come back. So. The distances are really significant.

"Even further south all the two largest satellite galaxies of the Milky Way the large and small clouds of Magellan, these are totally hidden from northern observers, but contain some of the most spectacular neighborly and open clusters in the entire sky. Northern observers find that their view is dominated by the outer regions of the Milky Way Galaxy and so they have a clear view of the universe at large they don't try to look through the clouds of our own galaxy, so they get all the best galaxies and many wonderful globular clusters. Leli though all these different types of objects that we've talked about can be found all over the sky, so it's not like you have to travel to see a Galaxy Commission Abiola. But the views do depending on where you are, and the object, not distributed evenly all fairly. because. WHY WOULD THEY BE? So I hope that clears things up. We've reached the end of this episode so I. Guess All it's left to do is to wrap things up and let you know what the next episode it's going to be about. If you found this science, explaining but useful and want to hear more. Please drop me a male. It's podcast at Open Dash Astronomer and let me know I'd really like to know what your thoughts and if you enjoyed it something if you prefer something else. I'd also really appreciate your support, so if you know anybody who likes podcasts and is interested in.

The wwe outbreak. It. Wow. This is great. This is not great. And the Florida numbers, Stj or all-time high right now. Right Currently. People in position in the highest position of power are telling people to not get tested and that they want to fund testing centers. So right, which doesn't make sense. I, mean listen. We are in a time. That is so crazy. So insane. And It is. It's so sag. The only word I can kind of think of what we're living through is like biblical times. You know it's like I'm having this thought right now. It's almost like. So crazy that wild. We're having this moment of racial and social sort of reckoning. Of course it's happening at a time. When there's almost a cost to being distracted, and it's almost like were. It's so amazing that people are so dialed in the way we are. But it's crazy that it happens to be at a time. When in some ways it's also problematic. We are also distracted from a literal. Direct killer right now also. Yeah it can't be like. Of course. This didn't happen when everything else in the world was normal were only able to have this moment. Where finally people are paying attention. To the pain of systemic oppression. During a time, in which we also really need to be paying attention to go in nineteen. But it's like there's so much going on like you said. The is the civil rights stuff. There's the Kovic stuff you know. And this is all happening in an election year, which causes politicians to? SORTA, manufacture these issues and crises the healthcare crisis. That's been going on even before the culverts stuff. All of it. Is I can't even tell you guys how crazy! I. I am so. This isn't the. I recently decide so I've been going really hard on on every platform about issues and I'm. I'm trying to on the ESPN platform. Speak on things as they come up and and express my direct opinions on those things and express them emphatically and honestly. Without being a complete political. Beacon right now. Only because AMB I. For example when I speak out directly on politics on my social media. The question I ask you is. Is it worthwhile is is not I'm not talking about black lives. Matter I don't consider that to be a political issue, so removed that I'm not sorry, and it's not even agree to disagree scenario like no I. Don't give if you're upset when I write about justice for Briana Taylor I. Don't need you to follow me. I'm good, good, bye! Good night! Good Luck! I'm not talking about that. But when I directly refer to the president by name, the question I've been asking myself this week and I consider all you guys family who listen so in everyone likes to write and send us thought so you can feel free to give me your thoughts on it. Is it worthwhile. Given. How many voices there are! That are also saying those same things, and when the people who think the people who agree with me, agree with me. And the people who disagree I am not changing their minds. So I sometimes question. Is it worth it to continue to focus specifically on the politics of it all? When? Technically at my one the job that is the most important to me financially. I I don't know that it's beneficial to be overly political. That risk could be worth it if I felt I. could seriously make a contribution that could change people's minds however. I don't know if that's possible. So these are kind of the questions I answer, and then I am I. Am I more valuable being able to have my voice on these platforms and give my thoughts on. Social and racial issues. would. Is it a win? If I were to somehow not be able to have that voice anymore I don't know. You know I mean I think you change your minds thought. I'll say that I think, but you think on changing minds specifically when it comes to the person in the White House. I don't think I can change the minds of the people who are dug in on that. while. Yeah, I mean listen. This is gonNA. Be Some people the people who are on the fence who quote unquote in the middle or like iffy about him unsure. Those are the people that that reach in times like this because obviously. The same way that the section of people who no matter what you say. You can't change their model him. That camp breaks down into two camps as well right. Because if you say, you can't say, you can't change my mind on Donald Trump when you talk about him, you preach to the choir to me right so I'm in that camp of people who you say whatever you say about him, and you're not going to change. Minds is just I. Don't back up everything that he says so. It's the people who don't fall into that who like art sandwiched between the people who have their mind made up on Donald Trump that I. think your voice. Does resonate within does like speak to. Endless and maybe you're right I I can't decide. It's like if you're not affected like right now. It's being very clear. What things are all about so if that, if if Mitt now maybe there are some people who just don't pay attention. And it's useful because they follow me for other things and they're like. Wow, that happened I didn't even realize that I. Don't know how big sneak by reality TV on you for the wrestling, and then see and hear we sometimes you have to hear about the challenge so cove in one thousand S. She obviously the big, the biggest concern that I have at this very moment. Is ric flair. When it comes to wrestling, obviously, it's Yeah Rick Flair is now straight up in a program. And by the way I love it. I love that Ricksen program like when he first popped up on the pay per view before Before the last pay per view. He did a he did a little interview thing. With Charlie and Christian and I actually didn't think he seemed great. He seemed a little off. Since that I think has actually been very good. They snuck him into the program very well like like I'm with you thought like. Why is he like he doesn't need to be doing this. And then the way they used them to sorta like back Randy and be like a manager. I'm into it. I. Love the idea of every time you see Randy you see nature. Walking out behind him. I love that like I I'm here for it. It's you know frankly I know he's here for it He loves performing still and you know. He's not that old in in terms of being able to walk down the ramp, which some people seem to struggle with more than others He's quite able to walk down the ramp and And and get them and get in the ring and talk, and frankly the more he does it, the better he'll be at it so. Then you find out? That multiple people have cove it and like. What did they? Do you know between now and next, Monday? You know you have to make decisions and you know, do they? An and again? We talked about this on the round table last week. Because of the nature of the three hour show, you're not gonNA. Have a week with no randy story right now. Right, So I, don't really know what they do. You know and last week this these positive tests come on the heels of them, having friends and family allowed as a crowd at the PC right. Yeah. I wonder if that's where it came from. Seems like. To Tau, it really is 'cause I mean. With Florida and everything being deemed essential dislike. Who knows who really knows? Manage just it. Just you feel like nobody's playing it safe and that's the sad part. Is that yet it's it's open things you've been deemed essential. You can continue to make your money, but it's not safe..

All of you remember I. Remember This I. Forgot that you're an edge head. Yeah, I. Don't know if you remember this, but one on one of the early cheat episodes that we did together. W released. A list of something that was like the greatest wrestlers of the two thousands. And you and I went at it because edge was ranked above the Rock, and you would not have it and I was appalled. that. You would not give my edge the respect. He deserved sign very excited to be sitting down with edge, which is funny because I am also. Here I'M GONNA send. You sent me the screener to his new movie. Someone to send you this email as we speak. So you can watch this. You can squeeze his movie in between your. It has to be better than some of the shows. You're watching so. Will so we'll sit next week. We'll have edge and I will tell you I am a big Fan. Though I. There are times during his career where I really thought incredibly high of my at a time when I was down on him, remember I be I buried a member that live show he did. I do remember that. I just the spear. You quote. What'd you call it a hug down? I, I don't know what it was I. don't even remember who spear was I who spirited? Even say was better. than his spirit. I can't remember, but he. He caught a lot of heat for it. I was down on him for a minute. Maybe I was just mad that he was gone. Maybe that's what it was. I was hardly miss them. I I had I had a time when I was a really big fan and now I think come back been fantastic so. Next week we'll have edge on the show as she g. are you following the ultimate wrestling merch? I am I. Am I'm excited about it? I saw the Brett Post. I feel like that's not even all your Brett stuff. It's close. I don't think I have any other shirts. I'm almost positive that. Was the Blue Brett in that poll all. Yes, there is there is there. Because I saw the pink one too I'm just like no. The the blue is next to the pink. On the funny thing is I did entire post And I did the whole postal. Oh, that's great. And then I went and looked at I. is four more shirts that I've forgotten about? So. I had to I. Still Need I still need that. Original tank top even though I'm not a tank top guy. I need that Harbach exactly what you're talking about the black with the word blue tights. In the Black Tank Top, they're wearing blue tights. I need that heart foundation there's. Listen Man I'm not saying you know. Bret Hart made more money than any other. Superstar of all time, but I will say he was on top of the mountain for a long time. There's a lot of Bret Hart Merch I mean. When people say he, he wasn't moving merch. I think they don't realize just how many shirts and action figures and and VHS tapes, and all this other stuff was out there fully featuring Brett when they say that they can about all. Does he have an iconic shirt? You probably can't think of, but he has several. Tonnes the all overprint is iconic of the you know, the the traditional pink and white. All overprint is iconic the pink one that I have. Is a pretty amazing. The one that says Hitman in the shape of the glasses yup. He's got a lot. There's a lot anyways. Follow me at the ultimate wrestling I. Really Hope all of these shirts. If you follow that, yes, you can, and you can see bear modeling stuff. So as she gets. It's pretty clear that we gotta start out today. Unfortunately, not talking about wrestling actually. There's not a lot of wrestling to talk about this week. The biggest news I guess would be the covid outbreak I mean you can argue with the biggest, says the first thing that popped into my mind. Today is the covert outbreak at the PC. Yes. First reported by wrestling sheet. that. They said several maims of. Several talent and like backstage people at W. W. tested positive for coveted. Since come out, you know by their own admission on social media. That renee young tested positive for COVID. And Adam, Pearce who's a backstage producer and former champion tested positive. Kayla. Braxton revealed that she tested positive again recently in this random testing, she tested positive again. Yes. That's what she says she. She revealed that she tested positive in March. And then caught again. So she's. She spoke out specifically to debunk the rumor that once you get your immune because. She. She was there to test. She was not invincible. That's that's that's seriously. Upsetting for a variety of reasons. Yeah So so basically the whole you don't get it again is evidently not true. It's out the window. Herd immunity theory of like just everybody. Get it in. There will be good. Glenn and it doesn't mean it's true with everybody, but it's frustrating that it's defined that it's truth anyone. Because like. Now who who knows right? Throws everything. Right back up in the air. And there was speculation that renee young had it. SORTA unfairly because Tony. Kahn revealed yesterday that.

"Microbiome is a collection of bacteria that exists in on you. It's an ecosystem in its own right and issues with the person's microbiome have been linked to a litany of diseases. So it's important if we count put the best foot forward so what happens to the microbiome? During Caesarean section. We reached out to Peter Brocklehurst from the University of Birmingham for an answer. It depends on whether the water around the baby are intact or Blokhin at the time of this Zarian section. This is Aaron sexually done after the water on the baby at Brechin whether this label before Labor starts than bacteria from the mothers of China can reach the baby and be present in the baby's got at the time of this Zarian section. We believe that the longer the water burkin the more likely the varieties of bacteria and these babies will resemble those of the baby boom for jointly when the mothers water breaks. The fluid filled sac in the womb called the amniotic sac. Ruptures usually happens at the start of labor but not always with this section babies born by Caesarean section with the waters intact which is more than half of all bit spices and pick up activity from the environment. This can include the mother. Skin midwives hands any instruments used after the birth such as oxygen masks if the baby needs help breathing and other hospital services that the baby or anyone handling the baby may come into contact with our research shows that babies born by Caesarean section with intact waters were much more likely to have bacteria in their gut which are found in hospitals and some of these potentially harmful bacteria was this into antibiotics sometimes a Cesarean section is a medical necessity but there are many reasons. A mother may choose to have won both medical and personal but giving are continually growing understanding of the importance of the microbiome. It's worth understanding what happens at all stages of life. We didn't know what this means. For Babies. In the long term once babies start feeding and being exposed to all sorts of other bacteria as they get older the types of bacteria babies having changes and becomes more similar but even up to six months. We still found more. Potentially harmful antibiotic resistant bacteria in the guts of babies born by Cesarean section. Thank you Peter for doing the Labor in bringing us that answer next week.

This corona virus question does extreme temperature incapacities. This cooking walk. What about a fridge? Say if I were to put it on a cold setting for three days. High temperatures will definitely deactivate corona virus particles and to be on the safe side. That means more than about sixty degrees centigrade. Whether that's in the oven in the dishwasher or when you put fabrics into the washing machine the fridge and extremely low temperatures all a quite different story we routinely store viruses in very cold temperatures to preserve them for the long term for study and research and so on and while. It's certainly true that freezing and foreign rephrasing viruses will deactivate some particles many will remain intact and fully infectious in the fridge. Many of the conditions which lead to the natural deactivation of virus particles are not present. It's cool. There's no bright sunlight and this means the particles remain intact and therefore fully infectious for longer so high temperatures will deactivate viruses.

But was that Cuban he's taken such a tremendous leadership role throughout this whole thing this he is donated. Minor arena workers and these incentive. He's offering to pay the lunch or breakfast or lunch bills by declaring that he was doing. Who's taking care of the arena? Workers that put pressure on all of his billionaire. Colleagues too right. So but he even his willingness. He did an interview during the game which you know he had decided interview with Tom. Rinaldi then he held a press conference. And I can't say how impressive that was also important because you know Adam. Silver is busy. I wasn't expecting him to to call a CA- press conference also late in the day. But you know the there needed to be somebody to speak for the League and he did that and I thought I was pretty impressed with that. Did it really well. He did it. He was a little loose with some facts. Yeah we can keep practicing and the other thing I I thought it was just very bizarre. How giddy he seemed about. Yeah we had a great crowd tonight and Carlisle to yeah late Wednesday night early start. Who's a great crowd Mike? Yeah we don't want great crowds right. Now that's the whole thing here guys and honestly rick was like he's just. I guess you want your head coach of your MBA team to be just so laser focused and consumed with basketball. But he's talking about. This is one of the best regular season wins of of. I've ever been around. I'm like what he did. Yes he did yes he did. I'm like I'm a great job on outplayed. Yokich who gives a flying bleep? Like what the Hell's going on here as well about my situation is there was never any post game comments. You know which granted there was no game to be played but like I mean. That's that's what I have wondered about the Utah Game. But like I almost feel like Tim's experience was far more bizarre than mine. Because like you finish the game. I mean that's just crazy to me F- after suspended. Yeah yeah that was it. Was you know like the Japanese soldiers out on the Pacific Islands Royce? You were on air in the seven o'clock central our so you at home at three left at three fifteen three fifteen tonight. And that's now I slept for about forty five minutes because I was a little little wound up. It's it's pretty standard practice for me. Even though it was at three fifteen I typically call my wife carry on the way home from games and she had that expectation that I would do that as always so I woke up so she was pretty awake when I got home and we talked for a little bit. It's always slept for like forty five minutes. I think I I was back up at the arena for a live shot at five thirty. I went back six zero one. I hit at six. O One that morning I left the arena about midnight. Took my but to the grocery store stocked up on lean cuisine. You make some to get through. A lot of people are just two to thirty and they've got a lot of different kinds of pizzas. So you know two thirty in the microwave and boom. You got a nice little meal there although I gotTa Double Up on unusually all right. So we're going to be talking about this a lot in the weeks ahead You know I'm going to be honest with you. I know how to report today. You know saying that in the end. The teams were looking into. August the CDC has said they don't gathered over fifty through early mid-may. Nobody really knows what's going to happen here now. The the owners have instructed the CFO's to come up with a plan and give them some options. And what can we do? What'S THE BEST CASE SCENARIO? Well Okay Star. Well one thing I will say is that there's a sort of a clean break even though it wouldn't be enjoyable for the teams that are in ninth you could. It was representative. It is representative over sixty games. And there's a clean eight teams in both. They could start the playoffs I think. Ideally I like yeah I wanna be hundred percent Clara. Nobody knows people can guess but nobody knows us. We have to take care of ourselves as a society. I but one thing that will happen here no matter what is it the NBA calendar is about to be altered. Hopefully basketball is going to be important enough for us to really be able to focus this at some point in the summer but the NBA calendar now will be altered and you know in every crisis. There can be an opportunity and the opportunity. Here's potentially you know stuff that you could never get through before because there was bureaucracy and red tape and you know entrenchment and what have you. I mean now. There is a window to make changes and there could be some changes. One change that I think could be done for example that has been discussed on and off over the last five years is you could move the draft behind free agency for you know. Forget about You know there's going to be another. Mba at some point and So there's going to be an off-season that off season is in September whether it off season is in July and so you could do what many people have wanted to do which is do the NFL model where the for free agency comes. First and the Draft comes after Royce what do you think about that idea? I think like you said Brian I think it. It seems intriguing to me to maybe have always had the season December to late July or something like that and again. There's an opportunity now here because let's just let's just play up the scenario here that the NBA finals in August this year. Correct me if I'm wrong but like you can't have players reporting back to training camp a month and a half after that right I mean. That's that's actually interesting for them to alter the schedule at all. They're going to have to get the players association to agree to move the Lee year. The League year ends tuned with right. Now they're going to do. I mean you'd have to. You'd have to have a period of free agency. You'd have to have you how it's not like you could just like start the training camps up. September twenty first or whatever and just like get go and you still have to open up a free agency period. There's a number of things have to happen so I think just naturally it would have to shift it and and I don't know that you could. I don't know the process of shifting it back to what it was like once it gets shifted. It seems like it would almost be impossible to shift it back so I've always liked the idea of December to July though because it gives the three main American sports like kind of the window of opportunity like football gets September to January basketball December. July baseball is like April to October. And it's like each. There's less overlap there and it's always made sense so maybe for looking for positives here. That's a reasonable positive to look. I have long been in favor of banning. Nba game from the football weekend. Because you know I like watching football so that is one tiny little. They operated the lining in this. Well yes I'm just saying I like football and I think I'm fairly representative of a lot of sports. Fans who live in this neck of the woods techs exactly so I believe that's a passion shared by the good folks across the Red River. Is that right? I mean is that correct boomer young. Yeah they don't they. Don't do Saturday home games than okay. See is them as little as they possibly can in the fall for a reason so yeah I think exactly scribe to that but yeah I mean there. There could be some permanent changes that were probably good ideas that kind of forced to test because of this but I think from a television standpoint as long as the NBA finals are done before. Football season. Kicks Off Right. I don't think there's an issue Let's be honest. You WanNa be competing against baseball and football. Of course that makes sense and if August if opening night we are. I shouldn't be kicked a baby totally on accident if I I don't know know know enough to where there's no overcrowding in there but if Christmas is is opening night of the NBA. I I do think that some of these changes could be B pluses down the road. But honestly I'm just kinda worried about Civilizations a hole in that's all just get through this before we start worrying about the NBA. Schedule Too much but I think this is something you know the people in the NBA are looking at right now. I mean they have to do something they have to pay for something. The other thing is you know if there's a progress made in this fight that we're all about to undertake because one of the things I've been talking about on TV. Is I do keep in touch with a couple of people that I know who work in the Chinese Basketball Association and You know again. I do not want to imply that the fight China is over but life is is is beginning to take strides to go back to normal in China China Look In I don't know how I don't know all the politics and everything that went on there but I can tell you that the CBA shutdown the third week of January. It happened to be during the Chinese New Year holiday which complicated Chinese Basketball Association not collective bargaining agreement. Right right the shutdown during that new year. time off and a lot of all the non Chinese players and coaches a Lotta had gone on vacation. I talked to Andrew. Nicholson who you may remember play the NBA for five years. He's right yeah. Saint Bonaventure got a huge shot. A contract from the wizards and I think you only played one or two years of it. another guy who's admitted him. Damn bontemps taken flack. She was in. He was in Turkey when when it came down and so these guys haven't gone back but you know they have. They have basically called everybody back now. Back the different movies and different negotiation. But the you know there's the majority of the League is Chinese players who've been in China so so they call it back not only allowed. What is it two or three foreign players per team so to to I believe too. Yeah yeah to imports as they say right but so they've called players back. I BELIEVE THERE. They want them back. tomorrow is in Monday. We're we're taping Sunday night And they're going to give a couple of weeks to have some practice and get back into shape and everything airily some and the first week of April. They're intending to resume the season. Now they're not gonNA Probably resume it in the same way. I think they're gonNA play all the. There's a possibly. They're going to play all of the Games in one or two cities but that's too far into the weeds. The point is if you look what's happened in China it was about. It's looking like an eight to ten week. Shutdown that the head now he's GonNa be longer than that in the US for various reasons but during the whole process that you know I was. I was talking to these guys that I know as as they were trying to figure out what's going on the Chinese league was going through different scenarios. You know what can we? What can we do? What can we do so what's going on in NBA a the NBA office in New York and in various cities is looking at this saying you know what happens if we do this you know? Can we play through August and stuff like that and I do think while it's not the top one hundred things that's most important right now? It is something that if you're an NBA fan and you're looking to think about the league because you want to think about this instead of whatever else is something to think about. Think about how your life would be different your your sports fan life at least the idea that you would watch potentially watch. B.'s finals games in late July or August Let me let me ask you this. I don't know if you have any insight to this but like so let. Let's just play out the situation. Where it does they do. Call the the players back in May mid May or something like that and it's like the NBA is now has a start date. I mean I. I don't know how this would play out but I can't imagine there would be too much headway of saying okay. This is the time to come back. So would they have to like a lot for like a mini training? Camp OF SORTS. Or would they just basically be like okay? I I'm GonNa Tell. You the twentieth You I'm going to tell you what the pie in the sky thing is now. I mean look. We all are admitting. We don't know what's going to happen and we all are admitting that thinking about the NBA. Schedule is not what the is not most important things society. I have to just get that out of the way so that I'm not so insensitive. Joe Seem to this this pod you this far into it and we're gonNA continue doing podcasts. Because people do I think want to have a little bit of escape. What they would love to do is to get to seventy games. And the reason that seventy is a key number is because that is what the deliverable is to the regional sports networks. They are probably seventy games now. Just because team might the Lakers. For example get the seventy games. They wouldn't necessarily be able to deliver on that because they've had a lot of national games but getting to seventy would be helpful in retaining revenue..

"Did you have to do anything special tonight you know? Did you have to make sure you wash your hands that you have to sanitize the basketball? He was like no. What are you talking about like and I was thinking to myself? Like so yeah. They're not ready for this and I'm watching players sitting there talking with assistant coach going over films sitting in the same seats. We see it every game where you see players like Dan seeds high five just like normal So this whole thing like rudy was reckless and he made jokes about it and stuff and certainly looks like a fool because of it but the whole league was reckless. And even if you're just guys up like playing basketball was was reckless especially packed house. I just want to point out. I just want to point out. Now it's very possible that the next day which would have been Friday morning that the League was going to announce that we're going to be no fans effective immediately right but the league had not announced that yet and who knows if they might have tried to squeeze out another day or two. So you know rudy is I would. I mean I've stopped short of calling him a hero but him coming to him coming down with it broke up the league and theory limited the amount of opportunities there was to spread it expedited. Something that needed to happen quickly and it it went from. Hey there's a few dozen people some hundreds here and there but this thing there are some people who have it to Oh my God an NBA player has at the League is shutting down like it became a different level of like you could not ignore it at that point. You could not just sports but every I wish I could say you could ignore. You could not have four functioning brain cells and ignored at that point so so I did get up on on Wednesday and Thursday Wednesday and Thursday. This happened Wednesday night right Wednesday night. I said Friday earlier but I'm Wednesday night so the the lead so when I came in to get up we had our six. Am meeting. It's early wake-up call. And the the Lakers had just had that rough lost the night before to the nets. And we're going to take the lead. Nba Story and but overnight. I had gotten some texts and some stuff about how serious this was going to be. I raised the idea in the in the conference. Call or the the conference call with the owners. I was like you know we probably should. The lead story should be the possibility of fans knocked out of arenas but the lead story to To get up that day was Tom. Brady's free agency and I wasn't sitting there and pounding the table saying there. That's a terrible idea. So and then that night you know twelve hours later. The League was shut down so everything did happen. Very quickly and go bare. Whatever happened he. He accelerated it. Roy How did you feel about being just going to the game at night covering a game in a full Rena I? I wouldn't say I feel weird about it. I you know I think probably like you did tim. You went to the to the game kind of with the context of thinking. This might be the last one for a while. You freaked out and I just made the decision. I was supposed to fly out to. La for Lakers rockets naming in La for a couple days of the rockets were staying over and made the decision to cancel that because DFW. Lax flight just sounded like an absolute just an absolute nightmare game so and then on my way to the game. I'm arguing on the phone with my older daughter because she wants to go to the movies and I say no absolutely not. You are not going out in a crowd. That's not happening. And Oh daddy you're overreacting. You're being overprotective saying look. I'm driving to a game right now that I don't WanNa be hat like. There's no way we should be having these kind of crowds. So I spent the whole game and obviously the Gobert thing was unfolding as my game was beginning and then the spin snap and like right is the second half of starting last night the whole game kind of freaking out about being in a crowd. I look across the court and this dude in the fourth row is wearing a face mask gloves. And I'm like dude. Obviously you concern. About what the Hell Are you doing here? You see this. I mean we're trying to have a little bit allay hardness with it here where you concerned and like you know you've got two kids and a wife. Yeah I would say I was ever concerned about it. I mean it was kind of retracing your steps a little bit and you're wondering but once once it was made clear to me and obviously again we'd at that time we didn't know Donovan. Mitchell was positive too but I understood that Gobert was never in the arena. He wasn't even shoot around that morning in the arena and kind of sitting there. I'm trying to look at it reasonably saying like I mean like let's look at it logically. Nothing there's really nothing to worry about. Everybody Kinda kept asking me what do you do you have to get tested and I was like no. I don't have to get tested. I'm following the same protocols anybody else would if I have a fever they suggested that I self quarantine for twenty four hours. I was back around the locker rooms and and I felt a fever. Then I could maybe monitor my symptoms but no pointed. I really ever worry about. I mean there was times where it was kind of like to the point of surreal. Where it's like. What is going on and it? Kinda made me anxious. When I saw the health officials come walking in. They like clothes a black curtain in their heaven. This like little huddle and they've all got their scrubs on blue medical gloves on and I'm like Oh my goodness really happening like they're they're going to go back into that locker room like that was that was kind of like made me but at no point man would have been long. Scared Guy was actually. I was actually almost. I was almost wrestling with a security guy so that I could get back there and watch what they were doing. He was like strong arm. Me Out of the way so I was going the opposite way. I just try to cover an.

"Of the way. They both grinned. The castle shimmered with enchantment as the SPOUSAL lifted. It was time to go home. Elsa called once again to the north wind they had completed that quest and now sought his help in returning home the north wind whistled with joy it carried Elsa and the prince to the southern island with the red. Sandy shows that they summoned the southwind and he carried them to the beach with delicate white seashells. They called the West Wind who took them to the mountaintop. They asked the eastwind to help. He carried them across the valley and over the forest all the way to the Princess Castle by the Sea then Elsa and the prince waved farewell to the wind hand in hand. They walked through the castle doors and lived happily ever after.

"He left them in a stone courtyard. There were no birds here. No small animals no trees or streams or mountains. There was just a lonely castle in the Sky Floating on a solemn Cloud Elsa hop down and walked with the bat to a set of large wooden doors. She pulled them open. They found themselves in a large room. It appeared to be the only room in the castle. It had marble floors marble walls and a glass ceiling high above. It was beautiful but there was no prince perhaps he was hidden. Elsa thought she would find out Elsa called out to the very concert itself. They'd come from far away traveled through the forest across the valley up the mountain to the very end of the earth. The four winds carried them here now. They were here to finish what they set out to do. Long ago. Wake the sleeping prince out of thin. There appeared a marble countertop with a piece of paper covered an elegant handwriting. It was a recipe for Golden Apple Pie. She pulled the first women's gift from her bag and set to work. She chopped the apple at it. Cinnamon nutmeg and cloves and made the dove for the crust. When it was time an oven appeared below the countertop precisely an hour later the warm and delicious smell of Apple Pie wafted the castle. The bad licked his lips. Elson you the bad worked hard to carry her on their journey. She pulled the pie from the oven and cut him a wedge he ate up every last crumb then out of thin air vanity appeared with a Beautiful Mirror. Elsa pulled the golden comb from a sack. She noticed the best for was tangled in places from the long journey she set to work. She combed out each tangle and smoothed his fair. Until it's Sean. When she had finished grooming the bear a final note appeared.

"The woman told them to take it for it would prove useful once. They reached the castle in the sky. Tomorrow the old woman said Elsa and the bear must go to the very top of the mountain and summoned the eastwind. He help them find the castle in the sky but now it was evening. Elsa and the bad with tired after such a long journey the woman invited them to sleep by a fire which they gladly did the back held up an Elsa laid down with a head on his suffer. They slept soundly until morning. Soothed by the crackling fire their feet when they woke the next morning the old woman had packed breakfast fuel. That journey to the top of the mountain. They thanked him and set off. Bad climbed slowly Catholic with ulcer on his back and up they went. The boulders turned to rocks which turned to pebbles the grass became and sparse at the top. It was a smooth ledge where Elsa hopped down off the bed. She raised her arms up to the sky and called to the East Wind. They needed. It's guidance to reach the castle in the sky and wake the sleeping prince.

"To Elson. She gave him a slice of apple and a piece of cheese in return. Elsa the ban sat together by the fire enjoying their meal and sharing stories long into the night who else told the bear about the prince and the castle in the sky. The bad was impressed by conviction to free the prince. He would help her on this journey but I it was time to rest. Elsa pulled out a blanket and curled up next to the bed. She rested her head on his soft firm and tugs have blanket up to her chin was born and she felt safe with the bears a companion her heads rose and foul gently with the bad breath. She noticed his breath beginning to slow down. They both fell into a deep and restful sleep the next morning Elsa woke to the most tantalizing smell.

"You're feeling calm unhappy but it's just fine if not you may have thought that playing on your mind certainly nothing unusual but don't let yourself get frustrated by just take a nice deep breath in then release the air slowly back a this a few times to regulate your breathing to just suffer new muscle.

"So if you objectively is Jewish inning good or bad what impact does it have. There's no answer that so if you do a huge amount of it will for certain have big impacts but the question is if we do a moderate amount using it not to drive client back to pre industrial but using it simply to reduce use the total amount of climate change over the century while we bring emissions to Ciro and then slowly takes you out of the atmosphere in that circumstance. There really he is. Evidence could significantly recliner risk. Computer models can't predict all the risks. But there's one problem that's already getting a lot of attention okay. So let's say we start solar engineering and decide. We don't like it. Can we just stop anytime. We want to so so termination shock which is abruptly stopping. Geo Engineering is something that people are also extremely concerned about so if we were you know deploying excellent engineering at a pretty high level and then abruptly stop we would see abrupt warming really fast warming and the impacts that come along with it so why would termination shock be so bad. Let's imagine a scenario. Let's say the world comes together on Geo Engineering and we decided to do enough to stop. Global global temperatures from rising more than two degrees fifty years pass and the world is significantly cooler than it would have been now. Let's imagine that during these fifty years we went on burning fossil fuels all of that carbon still goes into the atmosphere. The only reason things are getting hotter is because we slathered on the sunblock via Solar Geo Engineering. Well if we stop all of a sudden fifty years of warming could happen real fast that means all the melting flooding being an extinction would also happen rapidly. We'd have no time to adapt and that would be very bad news to be accelerated. Yes that said though. The situation in which termination shock would happen is probably unlikely So you know if we were to start solar geo engineering and realize that it's having some unintended harm. We can slowly turned down that temperature right in the ideal world sold generating will only be happening in the context of aggressive emissions reductions. Right so it would have an end date. And so that way it would be tapered off by default and so I think that's the ideal situation of using it that we would reach our goal point and then slowly taper off right as opposed to stopping in the middle because because we've decided you know it's having more harm than good right and stopping in the middle is not something we would ever want to do. And so hopefully that's where governance would come into play right right and so even if it were potentially having some harms or consequences you know scientists and researchers hopefully before we had deployed this would have strategies adages of how to slowly reduce Saudi entering us to where it's not as harmful so we can floyd taper off as scientific risks. I think even more dangerously. Interestingly potentially our the political risks the geopolitics of Geo engineering is incredibly risky. We have no idea how different countries trees might react to to such a process. No one may know for certain but there are some people who have a pretty good guess one of those people is gear or not Wagner. He was the founding CO Director of Harvard. Solar Geo Engineering Research Program and he's particularly good on the political risks. So we skype them. In every country on earth has a shared interest in keeping global temperatures from rising right but every country also has their own interests so I'm just curious about what type of conflicts. UC rising after Geo Engineering get started. Should we start with outright. War should be end up. There are huge. Huge disagreements of war we ought to go and yes this is this is were politics comes in and this is where things get messy so I mean. It's kind of like two roommates who have one thermostat in one person likes it. Super Hot in the other one likes it chillier and and then they got the right to roommate's can usually at least when you're that you at least you know who to talk to right now. You know scaled up by seven billion Korea right right just a slightly exactly so sociology. Engineering is an extremely powerful potential technology. Allergy that has lots of potential benefits but it also comes with risks it comes with uncertainties and and ask so often there are winners and they're loose. It doesn't take much to imagine that those losers some main fact have let's say nuclear technology at the disposable speaking of countries now may want to stop those from trying to sociology engineer to do also so imagine the rapidly developing large Southeast Asian country that is particularly badly hit by yet another hundred year tropical cyclone and musically say we we have the technology. We can do this so now. You have a country solely nearing with the best of intentions sharp. Now now imagine the country. A blaming country be for devastating floods or droughts or anything in between while everyone knows that country be is in fact solar engineering that like a country could say okay we got flooded and it's your fault because you started Geo engineering without a saying okay. For example yes right and then in many ways it. It won't matter whether it's true true or not. It won't matter where there's a link scientific or otherwise like wars have been started for much less another scenario. Petro States right who has every interest in the book. Right to maintain the status quo pumping fossil fuels selling them burning them. Dumping you to in our atmospheric sewer vast economic interests to keep the status quo while imagine that country having the capacity to just pull the trigger to go do it. Whoever controls the dial here has in fact a lot of power while L. tests why countries do have military's to prevent others from accumulating? This kind of power q the Wars Rights Q.. The conflict like worst case scenarios. May well be along. The lines of countries disagreeing words were set the dial so imagine somebody trying to engineer you to make it cooler and somebody else saying no no we like it just the way it is right you could imagine a scenario where if someone tries to release powerful greenhouse gases into the atmosphere trying to in fact woman wrapped. Wow yeah that sounds like definitely sounds like a movie. SOUNDS LIKE MISTER MR freeze trying to make the whole world really cold and then poison ivy trying to make it all real warm because she just really likes that and then what we get is just some sort of like police suit suit that we're all just really in trouble about. I mean frankly. We've had two fairly bad but still Hollywood movies on executives topic already on the other hand. Yeah there's a screenplay writes itself beyond the scientific and political risks. There's another problem. One that comes down to basic human the nature to be clear the reason that lots of really thoughtful science policy makers oppose the kind of work. I'm doing opposed. Jose Research and debate about this topic. Is there fear that no matter what we say the inevitable result will be that people will just decide to keep the fossil fuel party. Ardi going I mean you know I can totally see people being like well. This is a great shortcut and I don't have to change my ways and things are getting better anyway away and it's really hard and it's going to be expensive so I'll just keep doing what I'm doing and you guys. Just keep Geo Engineering I. There's no question that impulses out there. Mrs Actually an argument that was used against technical adaptation in the nineties on. They thought if we talked about actually the building up ways to help address the impacts of climate change we went and actually continued trying to limit climate change itself We've obviously moved past that. But it's still an argument here and in some ways you know. It's a concern. I think there are a lot of politicians and people who might view it as a silver bullet as a quick fix. So they don't have to change industry You know the fossil fuel industries incredibly entrenched and you know if they view it as a way to continue business as usual and pick it up. That's that's a legitimate concern. Now that they haven't done that yet doesn't that something. The fossil fuel industry is involved in yet. But it's it is a concern and so that's kind of the moral hazard argument. I know nobody studying looking at talking about solar generes in any sensible way shape perform. WHO doesn't go to paints to start every sentence? Oh maybe you know every paragraph at least with the demand for we we have to cut C. O.. Two there is no way around us by whatever. Your Medical Analogy Sola. June nearing is not the I soon is not addressing the root cause. It's the band. Aid is the painkiller it's the opioid it. It's the stuff that has some real nasty side effects there is no way that perfectly substitutes for emission Scotch. And so. If you think that you're sharing is an excuse to just keep the fossil fuel party going and keep burning fossil fuels forever and then continuously doing more solar sharing that world walks us closer and closer.

"And so when you move back to Cambridge when did you. When did you move back? I think it was about eight years ago. Well I mean the point. I can't moving back in a way again by Ken Wayne so I don't really now. That's interesting that you kept circling around this place that you've spent your childhood in and you said earlier that when you go on a walk today that every place you pass is sort of layered words with memories and there's this line in love an eye your latest collection where you right. What if you think of time As a long and everlasting plane you can pass across it any which way you turn given that that sense of of Tyne nine that it's not a line but something can sort of move about and I'm just curious to know so if if if life becomes ever more predictable if it if it's whatever makes sense no never but cuts you've seen everything is so mysterious on that never changes. It's that feeling of being Astonished by existence by being here at all Do you feel like the older. You get the closer you become to transcendence well. I think uh-huh I mean my beloved friend John Joe or no just died. You probably know that that. But he was the most beautiful in transcendent person and at the same time. Completely hilarious impractical. I hope so I I was telling him about visions. I had when I was in the hospital and then pouring out these fascinating things thinks that meant for me and he said all that. What's the drill? I thought I thought I was on my way to go so that that was the right response..

"I was wondering if you could read this poem. It's called everything Oh yes I know of that poem but I'm also wondering if there's a way that you can bring me in I don't know exactly how but maybe there is something you can tell me to you. Listen for or think about. I'd love some help getting into this pond. Yeah okay well that that whole set what's written in Washington DC. When I was teaching at Georgetown and I did have sort of mm-hmm temporary rental. The House downtown I can't even remember the name of the district but it was on Washington. DC is very haunted. I found and the House that I lived in was four stories. Arrays High and deeply haunted by. I think by the man who had built it who also was the architect for the on Capitol building and he was a very bad tempered man. He was known for his bad temper. Nobody liked working with them and one one day he went in and told them to put up a beam between two walls and they kept saying. It's not ready. It's not ready. And he shouted him screamed creamed told they had to so they went up and the beam fell on him and killed him. It was his his house that that seemed stature rated with Bad Temper but also had the whole sense of Washington of democracy and ideals and what what makes Washington. DC Such haunted place. I think it's sort of like it's built on Walter it's sort of soggy and I'll like a swamp underneath the buildings I find it fascinating beautiful but there's something about it. That isn't quite right. It feels you steal so you're dead already when you're did you want me to read it anyway. Yes please lease infinite nesting pushed us all matter towards emptiness. Child nodes trae droppings. Ping's with a root element of now. None it's always included in every cluster of children. Nothing in nothing prepare serves yet up. Fresh light was shed on immortality for me climbing the stairs firmed foot. I everything was in the band. Have Stir Crows on. BRENCH ships CRIPS ARCHITECTS HEM songs and and Democrats Red Moon at three. A M. Thank you so much. I'm so glad that you gave this little introduction it it it really helps me feel out the dimensions of the poem more. I was still wondering if you could tell me a little bit more about nothing in nothing. Nothing prepares US Now now that that the way our nets up nothing next doesn't sent Make it any easier to to live in the world. I mean you can say it's all nothing but And saying that doesn't prepare you for the shock of being here It's hard to describe drive. I think yeah you know I mean anything that's worth describing heart described right. I know I mean I think income during the seventies and eighties there was a movement amount of irony all over the country and in deconstruction and many poets whereas saturated an irony and it became Sickening I can't explain it but I think it all which blasted away with nine eleven when buildings the things down and not be nothing was not a good enough way to explain to say Ebrington means nothing and well that line firm. I comes from Dante climbing out of purgatory. He He. He said he had climbed firm firmst. which meant I had so hoped load Theological meaning but in his saints. It was just. You always have to put the strong the strong and life affirming gesture I I mean I it just poured out. I can't really say exactly when you say just pours out. Is that how you experience writing. Basically yes 'cause I write by hand so it's whenever he comes to me. I have to grab my pen and paper. Write it down and then I spend agents Analyzing what I'd put down and trying to make sense. So it's true that EPA purse out but then I often can ruin net by picking at it too much but Yeah but the weirdness of that instant what are what are you actually looking for. And that's sort of the nothing and nothing to you can pick at your poem and to you kill it right so so it was always a as if that's a very permeable boundary. Almost that that something can very quickly turn to nothing and back again. That's right and you can never find that first. Fine careless rapture of this of the outburst and the clarity of a kind of van spontaneous action.

"This is poetry off the shelf. And I'm hilly another and today a presence in the sky when you read Fanny Housework there is one tale that keeps recurring. It often stores like this. A young boy with the soul of a poet prepares a bag with almost nothing in it. Let's say a book and a comb. Then he takes his book and his comb says goodbye to his mother his father his home and starts walking out into the wilderness. Uh often the boy turns out to be a prophet of some kind a seer. Even a saint but back comes later. I there's a part of leaving behind the comforts of home and choosing the chaos of the wider world. It's not hard hard to see why. This tale appears and reappears and Fanny House pages. She was born in nineteen forty into a family of prominent imminent Bostonian intellectuals. The daughter of a playwright and Harvard law professor at Seventeen. She left all of that behind and and moved to California where she spent her college days. Protesting the death penalty in the Vietnam War before leaving to report on the boycotts and sit ins in the south else. Where once again she left to battle racist housing policies in the northeast after marrying and divorcing her second husband opened a Mexican African American editor with whom she had treat children? She threw herself into the fight to desegregate schools to care for her kids. She criss crossed the country from teaching job to teaching job and learned as she describes it to live on smoke alone to find the free clinics the kind people the food stamp outlet and to exchange free childcare with other mothers. What sustained her? All those years were the words of fellow seekers Francis of Assisi Meister Eckhart Saint John of the cross Donte Simone Weil and her Catholic faith now after a lifetime of moving and wondering I I still hear. She's back home. I'm so happy that you want us to talk to me So so why. Don't we start with very early childhood because you probably don't don't live too far away right now from the House that you grew up in in Cambridge Massachusetts and I was wondering what are you most remember about about that house or or that street. I do remember being happy but especially when I sent indoors. It's a beautiful place to grow up Cambridge for a child and it was specially in those days because there weren't that many cars and it was safe. There weren't murderers lurking around. So I was always whirling around on my bike with my dog and friends on so pretty the idea lick childhood. I must say Because now you see I'm making basically same walks Since I live a near to the apartment we had at that time Everything except fused with about a million layers of memory and the weather here is what rules the day. It's like Being in a theater production effort you you know how bright will be will be in the audience. It's kind of an event the water and and New England. Yeah exactly and and that it's also all over your poetry and your essays What do you think draws you to the weather? Well thank movement the motions of things and that sense of the extent to which living life biology go so far out into the universe it some incredibly emotional to me to watch the sky sky and When they were bombing Iraq for instance I went out and looked at the sky at night just to get my perspective back as I'm sure the people in Iraq did too but anyway it's it's a hugely Oh God it's know much about color her life and it's very Metaphysical from me the sky and the trees. Yeah did you have that that sense as a kid I did. I mean basically remember looking out the window and feeling a presence. Then we've spent much bigger than the household and wanting to go to so that sort of trade with me around for a long time that feeling of presence and is that a feeling that you sometimes lose and then find again again or is it always there it near Saint trips sting. It's often not there in terrible times until after after whatever at once it's over then I keep thinking who else it. Who was they are with me when that happened? I kept failing. There was another person person in the room with me or what but I can't I don't know who it was. Yeah Yeah you you you did live through some terrible times times What was the first inkling of that of that? The world's seemed to be in such a state of disarray. I would say it began with the war And it. It penetrated indoors and on the radio. That sort of ominous feeling about the war going on And it was so specially colored when the war finally ended up my father become home so they'll wear all the dimensions to it. Yeah and do you remember because you know you were very little right when your dad was in the war in Europe. Do you remember if the adults around you shielded you at all from the danger that he was in or did you know no we knew there was no shielded on that partly because my mother was not type which shield anyone from anything thinks. She was very Dramatic oh I see so f you see every day with a drama about we hair in North Africa Africa. He was that day and who got shelled all of that so it was pretty present that so interesting because I feel like even as a little kid when you can can sort of read the mood of the news or of dramatic things going on. You don't actually understand what they're saying. I mean at least in my experience. Do you remember something. I'm coming over the radio and you you knew what they were talking about. It was it was more of like music it would slack. DOC hearing Hitler's voice and Hearing Roosevelt's Mois on radio in the living room going all time whether you understood they are not you got the picture from the quality and the emotional tone of voice. Hitler's was particularly on track. And it's so hard to describe an absence of someone or something right but do you remember what was your conception option of what a father even was since he wasn't there. I know you're absolutely right. Because people always assume a child needs a father author. Yeah but how do we know they. You know what I mean or even your mother. If there isn't one you're being taken care of but I think in this case it would so suffused with the news and danger. He took on a kind of mythic quality to me. When Roosevelt Elk died I thought he had died? Everything was confused. Oh Yeah Yeah. Of course and then when he came home did you just WanNa be with him all the time absolutely all the time. I adored him and He and I both loved dogs. So there was always a great deal of bonding around which dog. We walked at night things at that level. Yeah Ooh.
