Basically i've studied psychology for a really long time but my interest in the science of happiness started when i took on a new role at yale. I became a ahead of college on campus so yells. One of these funny weirdo. School is like hogwarts and harry potter where there's colleges within a college. So i'm i'm head of silliman college which means i live in the dorm with students right. I eat with them in the dining hall on. Hang out with them in the student. Coffee shop in in this new role. I really didn't like what i was seeing. I was seeing the college student mental health crisis up close and personal with like so many of my students reporting that they were. Just you know depressed. Feeling anxious overwhelmed students who are experiencing suicidality. It just wasn't what i thought. College life should be like right and so the journey. The science of happiness was really. I wanted to do something to help my students. I really wanted to give them strategies that were evidence base that they could use to feel better than because. I'm a nerdy professor. The best way to do that. Was you know to to teach in new class on it. So i developed this whole new class called psychology in the good life. It was like a new class. You know at this university. And so i thought like thirty or forty students would show up in so you can imagine my surprise when it became like the biggest class ever in yale's history over thousand students according to the entire campus showed up in. Wow oh yeah. I was a little surreal. But it you know. It really taught me that you know. Students are voting with their feet. They don't like the sensor feeling stressed and anxious and they wanted some strategies to do better.

Sonos announces it's new Roam speaker
"Let sarah santos events ish. They announced a portable bluetooth speaker. Called the rome hundred sixty dollars. It's pretty cool. Yeah it's a uey boom with sonos logo. Very chris wallace because he likes scooped. The whole thing so like the element of surprise is like compared to the boom. It's got sun tech in it. You can also just like seamlessly move audio if your bluetooth thing it to that speaker you can move it to the rest of your center speakers which is cool. Yeah it seems like is about to dramatically expand this product line. Yeah you know it's funny. This is the first really portable sonos product like they had the move was at twenty thousand or something like that. But that was portable from like your kitchen to your porch. Nobody really is bringing that thing around. 'cause it weighs eleven pounds but this is boom sized thing so we're very familiar with that foreign factor. You throw it in a bag take into the park. You take it to the beach. Take it to a friend's house for whenever we can do that again. And like it's bluetooth speaker and then when you're home it's a wifi speaker in integrates with your wifi so system which is really bad so i think it's pretty cool. I think a lot of sonos customers have been wanting this for a long time. I don't know how many people outside of the sonos world will be interested in it but yeah that's a big question is is this going to be an entree into the living dishonest life or not. I love that. They may basically through every feature that i would ask for right. I'm like oh. What do i want to have bluetooth speaker with everything. Okay i google assistant. I want lexa. I want wi fi to connect to sonos. I want bluetooth. I want wireless charging office standard. She pat i wanted to charge a usb. And i don't want to be too big and i wanted to. You know have good sound like they just checked down the list. Like if i had to complain about the spec i would say that the the handoff feature uses like super super high frequency tones that nobody can hear instead of just using an ultra wide band. Or something like okay. Who cares that's really what's tv but a different kind of frequency. Anyway i mean really for for yeah. That's true so i like this thing. Is it worth seventy like. It will be for me. I think because i will. I have it integrated into my sonos system. I will say this in a question that only virtual would ask. We confirm that you cannot use surrounds versa. That's garbage. i take it all back. The only people who asked people care. But i personally loved the idea of putting my surrounds away. Bring you a so funny battery operated through. I don't think anybody else cares about that. It's true they've packed every feature into it. It's very competitive. I think that the idea that like most most days you don't get any value your bluetooth speaker right like it's just like at home. He put it in a closet. You take it out when you want to travel or like your house because it's part of senators. You might get a lot of value out of it. Might like keep it in your bedroom and use it there most days and then we want to leave up and go especially if you buy the charging dock but like patrick spencer. Good friend of our show give in to the yank protocol. He's like we're expanding. We're going to put this thing in stores. You might not expect like particularly outdoor stores looking towards that camping stores. They're moving to expand the product line out of its normal

"santo" Discussed on Stuff To Blow Your Mind
"Leaves transylvania initially i. I don't remember it as much. Maybe i'm less interested in. That first story is gold. Oh i think. I must admit that i generally enjoy the movie. Adaptations of dracula better than i like. The book itself which is which is not true of a book. Like like frankenstein. I love in the original piece of literature. Not to say the dracula is an important as well From literary standpoint all right well. that's a santo. In the treasurer of dracula you can find both versions of this film out. There you know in the usual places but the new version just came out on blu ray and it looks amazing again. The the restoration is is wonderful My only gripe is that. I is good as the dubbing is i. I wish i had the ability to have the spanish audio but there's no spanish audio included on the disc so I don't know what the reason is for that but that would be my only gripe it could be that they're the audio was lost for this cut of the movie but yeah Yeah i don't know why. That is but i agree it would also i think it would have been nice to hear the original audio with And just have english subtitles. Yeah and of course the the black and white versions been around for a while But again like it just it. The quality isn't there like the the the black and white footage is so grimy looking It it looks like it was unearthed in a tomb. You know. I feel like what somebody should do. Is put together a fund for the whole family cut of the great looking restoration in the so like you can cut out cut out all the like you know. European cut are rated seen. So it's the kind of movie you can enjoy with your five year old. But it's still got the eyepopping color and all that. Yeah absolutely. it's it's such a colorful film all right. Well we're going to go ahead and stay into this one But yeah who knows. Maybe we'll be back with With another santo film in the future or heck some of those biker films we mentioned early on i two To rewatch one of those for sure psycho mania a here colin yeah or some other biker. Lot of biker films Not all are great and not all involve supernatural elements but That's that would be my one..
"santo" Discussed on Stuff To Blow Your Mind
"I need to fly to transylvania and find somebody who can translate the servian. Yes yeah that's it But you need both of the pieces of jewelry and santo and friends only take one piece they take the medallion a but me and meanwhile the bad guys get the ring so each side has one of the pieces of jewelry And santo wants to continue investigating dracula despite louisa. Having a bad feeling about this she says like humans should not venture into the world of the unknown But santo says we have to keep investing dracula and find the treasure for two reasons. He says i to prove to those scientists who mocked me that my theory is right. And then second. Quote to find a vampire's famous treasure which will help the people in need. And i like this because they make it clear that santa would not keep the vampires treasure to himself. He would he would give it to the needy right. Yeah i mean that's just the code. That's the way it is right now. One thing that's worth driving home here and we'll come back to this in a bit too. Is that it is revealed. In all this in the obtaining of the the ring and the medallion that the dracula's body is still staked their like his body when did not burn away or melt into snakes crickets or anything like. He's still there with that stake through his heart And that'll become important in a bit right. So eventually santo and his friends ended up in another big fight with the the black hood and And his goons and dr support. It up proposes a solution to their problem because santa will not hand over the medallion. Even though the guy in the hood wants it and add. The solution proposed by by dr cesar. Here is that there should be a wrestling match between santo and the black hood son atlas and the outcome of the match will determine. Who gets dracula's treasure who gets both of these artifacts that will together spill the location and of course santa agrees to this because this is highly honorable and like let's face it. He's he's el santo right like he has a very strong chance of winning this No matter how great atlas happens to be right and then we get a great scene. That's a tutorial on the rules of wrestling using jericho. Kind of as a as a dummy just getting body slammed over and over and And of course. Here's where we meet santos on a gravelly voice trainer. yeah yeah Who It's it's like. He's training him or training with him. But i remember. I was also thinking like why does l. santo need anybody train with him but i guess for the purpose of the plot and also just for the comedic fine of having co slammed on a on a comfy matt and then having what six lucci doors all pile on him yeah comedic effect. It was and then it's wrastling time So we get a great wrestling match. Where where its atlas versus el santo. And they show you the whole thing. It's three rounds and it's just like there is a wrestling match in the middle of this movie. it's actually pretty good like you by modern standards. You might expect the wrestling scene to be like have a bunch of hyper cuts or to be a montage or something but no. This is like a complete. I mean maybe it's not as long as it would be in real life. I'm not exactly sure but it feels like a very complete wrestling match literally bray match with all of the signature spots and sort of you know the the rudo winning the ma- the around he supposed to win You get to see the high flying moves you get to see the mat wrestling which is also important..

"Like what happens if you go into a past life and then you die in that past life and then then ultimate louis know via the rules of time travel that had been presented to us. The male characters cannot travel back. Like santo can't go back and help or and even if he could. I don't know if there's any guarantee that he would be in the same time or in the same life or in that same part of the world who knows that's a good point yeah at will and also you get the sense that louisa in the past. Does she ever given indication in the past that she like retains her knowledge about the future. I don't recall anything like that. It's almost she just hold either like becomes her past self possessing only the knowledge of that past self. Yeah of course. It's complicated by the fact that she also falls under the power of a of a of a tremendously powerful vampire. Lord almost immediately But yeah we. We've not given a lot to go on here But anyway as i said the vampire plot just barrels toward the the conclusion you would expect van. Roth is trying to find dracula stake him. He says i have hired a wolf hound. The animal has the power to track vampire. Assassins that's good and then while they're watching the movie para He's commenting like oh where is lucar taking her. And he's he's very scared about what's going to happen. But then he sees all of the jewels in dracula's treasure box and when dracula reveals his treasurer. Eric owes intrigued. He's like could those jewels be real. I guess we're supposed to understand that. He likes riches because he wears the dollar sign necklace. Yeah yeah in the richest here. It's is i remember. It's a it's a casket one of the caskets. In this vault of dracula this just filled with what we assume to be treasure yet. Jewels and stuff. But so th dracula and louisa. They brag about. How no mortal will ever find dracula's treasurer and the go into their coffins to rest and then van roth arrives to stake the vamp. So he stakes dracula you get the big hiss. And then he's about to st louisa. Oh no so. Santo and friends have to intervene to save her and they do this by bringing her back through the time machine with a reverse footage effect before she can be staked in the past. I'm not sure exactly how that works. Yeah but this is suddenly realize like this is interesting because dracula's staked in the past and now we're back in the present and we still have quite a bit of film to go so this is the point where i was really intrigued. I was like. I wonder where this is going. You know like it seems like we resolve this journey into the past yet. Movies like less than half over at this point. Yeah but then the the the plot in the present develops a pretty awesome way. So we get some info filled in on the creep in the hood who has been snooping on santo and friends the whole time. While they're doing their experiment he comes back home and he meets with a body builder or like a wrestling due to kid. Who's like pushing up. You know doing Barbells ex exercises named atlas atlas addresses. The guy in the hood is father and father fills him in on. What's going to happen. The guy in the hood is like. I can find dracula's treasure because i spied had. There's a lot of spying going on in this. Because santo in company know about the dracula's treasure because they spied through the time machine and then we have father and company who were spying on santo and therefore learn about the treasurer as well right. So we we see. They're a bunch. I guess the guy the guy in the black hood is supposed to be a crime boss of some sort..

"Of the crowd loves. And then the one who comes out. And they're they. They exist to rile up the crowd and get booed and cheat and stuff right now. An added wrinkle in libra is that there will often be to refs in the ring. Not just one referee but to a rudo wrath and technical ref. because that's just fair it's also more like the real world. Yeah yeah it's like. A legal case is being presented physically in the ring and we have legal representation for both sides. Now another big thing and this is this is something. that's very widely known about lucia. Is that masks. The colorful masks may be bartered and lost You put your mask on the line in a big match against usually against another mask or sometimes against another wrestlers hair. And if you lose your mask that's not only going to reveal your face to everybody is going to reveal your identity so the identity of a masked wrestler is often not a matter a matter of public knowledge. Until you lose your mask. So the great star el santo. He i mean he would wear his mask always in public not just while he was interesting capacity like if he was doing something in public he was masked right yeah. This was his public persona How he was photographed In a lot of the still remains to this day But especially at the time again. This was like the golden age of lucia libra. We're talking about here and And he would. He was the el santo. Was this figure with the mask. And that's all you ever saw him so enclosing for now we'll probably touch more on this in a bet but yeah lou. Lucci libra is. It's kind of a passion play. You know it's good versus evil and again. The good guys are really really good. I can't stress that enough. Especially as far as el santo is concerned. I mean he is the saint. Yeah the movie really goes out of. Its way to show that l. Santo is is lawful. Good to the max. He's like batman from heaven. Yeah i mean he's he's basically like classic superman. Right where yeah. There's just not a shred of evil and there's no dark to this this version of the hero alright. So considering the context we've just talked about with With lucia libra. How does a wrestling tradition like this end up. Blending with dracula in a feature film well. I mean basically by virtue of him being this larger than life character that then transitions into film and yeah. You're you're left with just a whole series of well name some of the other the other ones of note here in a bit but in this particular one. This is the elevator pitch. What if lucia for and famous research scientists el santo invented a time machine. That could send women back to their past lives and in doing so encountered dracula and his fantastic treasure. That's that's basically the weather. That's the pitch. Yeah somehow the mask does a lot of work. Because i could buy el santo inventing machine much better than i could buy one of the like face revealed famous american wrestlers of today invented time like a. Oh stone. cold. Steve austin invinci- time machine and goes back. That's not a time machine as beer very good. Should we hit that trailer audio.
Civil War is Solvable
"One manual santos when you became president of columbia. You were faced with one of the longest running most insoluble civil wars in the world. When you begin thinking about how to solve a problem like that it seems intractable at can't end. How do you break the problem down what you think of i. What was your first instinct. My first instinct was to try to get a complete picture of the problem and tried to generate the necessary conditions to solve it many times. This is not done and when you don't have the necessary conditions at your disposal. It is impossible to solve a conflict of this nature. would you mean by conditions. What exactly what you're talking about. Are you studied the why might predecessors failed because all of them tried to negotiate peace and i studied more than seventeen conflicts around the world. Some of them were successful in being a ended. Some of them. But i studied each and every one of these conflicts and extracted what was applicable to our conflict. And what to do and what not to do and when i had those conditions ready i then started. Negotiations conditions like you have to have the military balance of power in the favor of the state as long as the insurgency the guerrillas think they can win by using violence is very difficult to negotiate peace. You need the commanders of the insurgency to personally consider that for them on a personal level. It's better to negotiate a peace agreement than to continue the world and something that is very very necessary in today's world. Any estimated war in any part of the world needs the support of the region and if necessary of the international community to reach an agreement so these conditions were identified and then created because conditions are. Don't appear just out of the blue you have to create those conditions and we created those conditions in the case of columbia. And what did you do. I would my first. Effort was to strengthen our military. And i had the opportunity of doing that because i was minister of defense before being president and also to use the carrot and stick with the military commanders telling them that they personally would be better off if they negotiate peace and something that i did which was quite controversial at the moment was making peace with our neighbors in order to seek their support. Charters in venezuela who is not popular in colombia was very unpopular and we didn't have diplomatic relations or even trade relations with israel at that time and made peace with him also with president korea and ecuador south columbia we did not have diplomatic or even trade relations with a either and we needed them to support the peace process otherwise the peace process would not be successful so i made peace with both of them and with other neighbors which we did not have at that time a good relations brazil and bill and the rest of that work. I know that one of the other things you did is that you sought to give the rebel leaders some incentive to join the political process in colombia in other words to bring somehow bring them in allow them to have a political party allow them to be elected and this of course was also controversial because many people feel that these are criminals and they should be in jail. Can you explain why thought that was necessary. And whether you think it worked every peace process boils down to who where you draw the line between peace and justice. No matter where you draw the line there will always be some people from one side seeking more justice or from the other side seeking more peace so to make peace is not very popular and dishes. A an experience at all speakers have had a during the recent history also in a process of this order. What are the guerrillas fighting four. They want to change the country. They want a political power. And you have to give them a way out to dignified way out if you want them to lay down their arms and the way to do that is to offer them a space. In our democracy and almost every peace process around the world has to give the counterpart some guarantees that they can continue their struggle without violence through democratic means and this is an essential part of any agreement.
International Salvation Army: Social Justice Strategy
"The issues. Be a voice and make a difference in ending human trafficking. Sandy you and i talk a lot about partnership on this podcast and we. It's been a central part of our work for many years. And one of the most important partners we have worked with over the years as the salvation army. And we're so glad to welcome a friend back to the show someone who's been a leader in the space were glad to have priscilla santos with us. Priscilla is the salvation army social justice commissions international coordinator for modern slavery and human trafficking response and priscilla is an adjunct professor at vanguard universities global center for women and justice where she courses on justice and holistic survivor care. She obtained a master's in intercultural studies specializing in international development and children at risk from fuller theological seminary priscilla. So glad to have you back on the show and you so much for having me. It's a joy to be here today. I was looking back to see when the last time you were a guest. It was in may two thousand fifteen and we recorded a podcast about mothers day and human trafficking and it was one of those podcasts. That just really grips your heart. So i recommend that those who have never met priscilla. Go back and listen to that. That's podcast number one. Oh one soper still. You're in a new role and your title is so long. I'm so glad. I already know you can just call you. Priscilla tell us what the international modern slavery and human trafficking. Response coordinator does us. So my new position is all of our international social justice commission office which is part of our international headquarters and our department is really to be the strategic advocacy voice for all things social justice into really lift voices from those on the margins and so within department now. They've created this role which is the international coordinator for monitoring slavery and human trafficking response and my primary function of my new role is to oversee the implementation of our international strategy to strengthen our response to trafficking all over the world. So let's get a little bit better picture of what you mean by all over the world. How many countries is salvation army in. Yeah so we are in over a hundred and thirty countries around the world. Wow wow what an amazing platform to have influence and voice in a hundred and thirty countries. That's amazing okay. So at salvation. Army has a very long and deep history in fighting slavery. And when i looked at the new strategy it's called fight for freedom. Tell us a little bit about how it was developed. Yeah so kinda like you mentions. Fighting and trying to end human trafficking is something that this ovation army has been a part of before. Even the term human trafficking was coins so for the listeners. That don't know the salvation army started an eighteen sixty five and actually. Our first encounter with advocating against trafficking happened in eighteen. Eighty five so very quickly after we started and it was where we advocated to change the law for the age of consent from sixteen to eighteen. It's one of our historical stories. Call the brinson maiden tribune. But i i think one of the things for us to realize. Is that the salvation army that this is a part of our dna. We have been doing this since the very beginning even before again. The the coin term was there for human trafficking so but more recently we have approved and launched this international strategy because throughout the hundreds of years that we have been working on the front lines. One of the things that could really strengthen is our coordinated approach and our centralized approach because one of the things that we realized was that we were doing so many amazing things all over the world. But perhaps we weren't really talking together. One side of the world didn't know what the other side was doing and so really to create some standards of care to create some promising practices among ourselves. We just launched. This is our international strategy. So it's the first time in our salvation army history that we have a strategy to help us all move forward together so it's very exciting.

"Before San Diego was the land of Seaworld and Kite surfing it belonged to the Kubiak I people labor farmers. But when Spanish colonizers settled there in seventeen, sixty, nine, the ecology of what would later be called California was up ended the city. We know a San Diego began as a fourteen Franciscan mission built in seventeen sixty nine called the mission. San Diego Day Al. Calla. When Mexico won its independence in eighteen, twenty one, it pushed northward to eliminate the Spanish. mission. System They divided southern California into private ranchos and victims indigenous nations like the Kumi I from their settlements. But the Kumi I resisted chasing Mexicans from the RANCHOS. By eighteen, forty, two, only San Diego remained in Mexican control until the Americans arrive. San Diego was a major battleground in the Mexican American war and whether the dust settled in eighteen forty eight, the fledgling settlement became part of the United States. There was no greater erosion of Native Authority in California than in the mid nineteenth century when treaties were made in broken flimsy clay pottery, the indigenous Californians and Mexicans who live near the mission. San Diego. Day Al. Calla. Were suddenly a disadvantaged minority in the united. States, in eighteen, forty, nine, just one year after mission San, Diego became occupied by America. A brahmin Catholic cemetery was established in the center of San Diego's Old Town. The burial ground was known as El Campo Santo the Holyfield notable figures in town were buried there but sober criminals and freedom fighters sometimes after being forced to dig their own graves. This was a spiritually tempestuous place and it only became more. So after the San Diego City Government paid a Streetcar Line Straight through it. Yankee Jim wasn't easy mantelet with he'd gone boom and bust in the Goldrush and so he knew what thing or two about humility he was fun and spontaneous especially when he was drunk and he was nearly always drunk. He was two days into a whiskey bender when he convinced his friends will and James to steal a boat. The little rowboat was the only one of its kind in San Diego and the Illinois as Joe. Stewart and NS. Wall were very proud of it. They wouldn't let anyone use it especially Yankee Jim. He was an outsider they said even though he had family in town. The Yankee Jim didn't intend to keep the boat. He just wanted to borrow it to give Joe Anina, some lesson in Hubris and to teach himself about in the process with enough study and time he thought maybe he could build his own. Gym told Willin James to sneak into the harbor and meet him by the water. Go for a pleasant sale, then set the boat adrift near the key no harm. No foul. But it was hard to be sneaky when you're drunk. Will tumbled off the dock and into the water as he tried to get into the boat. Just as Jim and James wrestled him back in liaison turn on the harbormasters office they wrote quickly out into the bay searching for some evidence pursuit. But pursuit never came. So they had a soothing and peaceful float drinking like fish while catching a fisher to after the whiskey ran dry they wrote back in and landed on the shore. Then they set the boat free and watched it drift toward the talks in the distance. Yankee, Jim thought he'd gotten away with it, but he wasn't as slice. He thought he was a large man six foot three inches without his hat. He stood out like a sore thumb or in this case, a giant in a tiny rowboat. Sheriff. Harris depict him up three days later, claiming that the harbormaster had witnessed his little joyride. But behind Harris d stood deputy Sheriff Philip. Crosthwaite. And Jim couldn't have been more relieved to see him. He knew having a godfather in the sheriff's office would come in Handy. But. It wasn't so handy. The trial was swift and sure. And it wasn't about the boat. The judge solemnly declared that a reliable person had reported that had murdered prospectors on the Goldfields. Yankee Jim was sentenced to be hung by the neck until dead Jim. Laughed they must be trying to scare him right? He couldn't hurt a fly. This must've been a prank of weights doing good old Godfather Philip trying to keep is boy on the straight and narrow. The punchline never came but `execution day did.

But it was no use his fate wasn't in his hands. So only could do was laugh at the absurdity and in justice up at all he laughed and laughed and laughed until the crushing pressure around his windpipe suddenly stop. Jim expected pain.

And you'd like watching the horses, pull the streetcars down the avenue that ran nearby the graveyard. Even if the new road displaced some of his ghostly neighbors. What he didn't like was the pavement. They'd given it a very un-imaginative name San Diego Avenue. It. Brought those loud in strange machines. Those automobiles far too close to his home. Nikki Jim was an easy man to live with even in death. But there was some things he couldn't apply. Hubris was one of them.

"Fun and then what other Laurie do. I Know Laurie. Short for Lauren Lawrence Loren Loren. Oh thank but you know. Laurie Bell Laureus Short from which I love. Because of all Martingale Laura. Lie Tongue's strong feelings about Laurie but but I have very strong feelings about. Ezra an Justin Justin the other name. I have such profound feel about it. Well so the the coolest kid in my school was just into sure shoora and he had moved from California to elementary school. So He's from Kelley any. He was the first to have the Lee Pinstripe Denim jeans which became really popular like the next year. And I yes and I clocked. This motherfucker was one year ahead And then my cousin Justin. Lebow was like the coolest guy ever knew was sponsored as a BMX freestyler. He was sponsored as a snowboarder and he was in a band I loved. He was just the coolest and his name was Justin. And then a few don't Justin's and they're all cool. I guess many justice like Justin. Willman the magician. He's very cool. Nita's magic for humans legit for humans. Yeah he is a slick do he's there. Yeah it's a strong name is to e next to make a p baby if it's a boy we could name Justin. It's an interesting thought because I would be more inclined to name the baby like Ezra 'cause I think maybe the P. Baby will be capable of like genius yes highly intellectual pursuits but doesn't have the physical shape perform any kind of athletics or dancing or any of the things that would make you. Cool your idea of cool is so specific. It's like cool. It's like you can do shit. Really well physically. I think it's cool. To Be Smart. Yeah Yeah but but but just again. The Justice I knew are more like they were chill. They the Babes loved them. They were great at everything. They were like all the guys like them. Maybe our P. babies very likable. Our baby is gelatinous right. Or It's disgusting. It's it's in liquid form. It's not in solid fight. It's not gelatinous show Latin on how. Yeah Oh no one. It's sick like we have no experience with P. Children to know what their symptoms would be like. I guess if it got gelatinous. It's already jaundice looking. Well you could never determine if the kidneys were shot it. That's kind of part of its charm that in spite of looking so unhealthy thrives yeah. It'd be nice therapy baby to have a little brother sister. I could see a p. Baby being one of the X. men I don't know a ton about X. men but one guy's in a wheelchair right and he liked makes all the metal fly around like RPG be very powerful in a superhero world could even be the leader of the whole gang just sits in a toilet bowl come it they come to a toilet bowl that lives in a fancy toilet bowl probably like a crystal clear toilet bowl so that they can see him without having to lean over the toilet bowl to communicate with them renovate my house to make sure to make all the toilets translucent story Yeah Hey Laurie she talks about this psychologist Liz done. Who's doing all this research says if he for someone to spend money on other people are happier than when they spend money on themselves which was really interesting and so. I looked up. She is Ted. Talk is really worth listening to and yet says that but it also like they did this experiment with kids like starts even when you're too they bring these two year olds in and there's like a bowl of goldfish. They give them. The goldfish are very happy. Of course sure cute and then they have the stuffed monkey and they say like Oh. There's no none left for the Monkey. Can the monkey have one and they all like say sure and then give him one and then like mapped their response to after they received the goldfish and after they give the goldfish away and the kids are happier after they've given it away? Oh Jr is interesting. Yeah but okay. So this tedtalk was she'd already put out the research saying that and Tedtalk was basically like I put up this research and then I was like but this doesn't apply to me like I don't really give to charity and I don't really want and she's like maybe there's something wrong with my research of she went back in and basically the new conclusion is the benefits by when the people feel that they have a sense of connection to those that they're helping me and they can easily envision the difference that they're making So they did this experiment where they asked people to donate to either unison or this organization called spread the net and they picked those because they have the exact same goal. Okay but because UNICEF like this big well known charity and people don't really know exactly where things are going and spread the net like a very specific motivation which is for every ten dollars provide one bed net to a child with malaria for money. People's gave the spread the net the happier. They fell after but with UNICEF F. The emotional return on investment was flattened. So matters if you feel like you're connected personally it's also the kind of the Paul Bloom empathy thing it's like you feel one kid one net. I'm like in late to that. Yeah once you get into unison. So it's like a billion people just gets diluted you're feeling of impact. Yeah but even if you donate one thousand dollars you then no like. Oh I did this. You can like really connect you go. I got two hundred kids bednets so anyway. I thought that was interesting news. Okay so you said. The article in New York Times said five. Second bursts of exertion help break up lists rides Yeah four seconds of high intensity exertion repeated periodically throughout the day might counteract some of the unhealthy metabolic consequences of sitting for hours epidemiological studies indicate that most American adults set for at least ten hours a day.

"We know we're safe but we get to experience enough of it that we can kind of comprehend it. I don't know an reason. I think people are still fight about that. It's actually a great mystery. My colleague L. Paul Bloom has a whole book on this about how pleasure is kind of weird right. But that's one of the theories it's like sort of practicing what those things feel and that's true for fear that's true for sadness right like why do people watch depressing movies you know. Why DO PEOPLE WATCH? You know terms of endearment something like really Super Super Sad. That's dumb like with that. Feel good right but we like to engage those things like year and sadness even discussed or pain sometimes people who eat the really hot hot chili peppers. So it's almost at the point of really hurting your mouth but not that bad. I'm going to go through so much. I told the story once on here but I have very distinct childhood memory of coming up on a pile of horse poop in the woods and I could not stop staring at it was making me sick and I hated it and yet I just and even walk away and then I had to go back and look again and get to the brink of throwing up and I have no clue why that was happening but it was a good fifteen minute exercise and just grossing myself out. Yeah looking to some bread. It's like like really dig this weird anyway yet. Another feature of the mind but yeah back to the breath I think regulating your breath. Controlling your sympathetic nervous system is a way that we can make. The threat is threatening right now and I use it I can watch myself. Kinda get really anxious of Panics Rolling on twitter and I've just been realizing like this is the time to do just like three D. belly breaths and afterward you just you feel so much better. Yeah okay number. Two was do acts of kindness and of course for in a that is like be of service. You have to be observers. It's so tell us the advantages of doing acts of kindness. Yeah I mean the advantages are huge and I think our culture just really doesn't realize this is another spot where I think our intuitions lead US astray. But also our culture like right now. It's all about treat yourself like self care like as soon as cova kicked in. It was like article after article about bathtubs self-care which is like again. It's not the bathrooms but the point is there's an opportunity cost to do stuff for other people right and so there's all these data suggesting happy. People do nice stuff for others acquainted for income or happy person. You tend to give more to charity. You tend to volunteer more. And there's some lovely work by folks like Liz done and others that show that if you force people to spend their money on other people they end up happier than if you force them to spend their money to do something to treat themselves. Yeah well okay. So an air explanation of that is my real. Problem is thinking about myself and all my needs and then craving but when I'm helping you it's nearly impossible to be thinking about my own desires and wants and so I'm just stepping out of that craving it forces me to stop thinking about myself and I find great relief in not thinking about myself. No totally think as we get inward focused. You know again this is what the Buddhists getting back to injure. Traditions realized about desire. Soon as you satisfy your GonNa come back right and so that the craving is just going to be a vicious cycle that you can never get over but the hit that you get from helping somebody. You can kind of do that again like you get the sort of warm glow as scientists. Call it from kind of helping other people. This is the sort of happiness that we get from doing. Nice things for others. It just kind of feels good so both gets you out of your head but it's also the you get kind of a double reward hit because like it feels good to help another person and then the research suggests it also helps your social connection right because often the people were helping. Our social relationship is going to give back to us. You know that service that you're doing in AA which is often with other addicts. Those people could help you when you're in a tough time so you're developing these meaningful important social relationships which is exactly. Yeah we we had this discussion the other day about being charitable and whether that's just ego or not and I was arguing no and you were saying everything stems from a selfish perspective of an an ran point of view that you can't do anything on planet earth that's not selfishly motivated now. You could have different selfish. Motivations that have outcomes that are beneficial to all but there's no way you can pretend that is this organism on planet earth. You're not I starting with your own desire. I guess yes like that is borne out by an evolutionary perspective. Natural selection would hopefully not believing stuff in that was actively bad for our own reproductive success. Just wouldn't do that right. That might not be the motivation in your head when you're doing it and so as onto polished you probably remember these. Biologists distinguish between what they call ultimate level. Which is like why is it selfish for your own survival and reproduction versus what's the proximate level. Which is like what does it feel like to you right now and your head right and so if you think about why you might want to have sex with somebody at the ultimate level that is always about getting your genes your next generation. That's why the instincts there but at the proximate level. You're not thinking about babies like you're probably thinking about like movies early didn't even they didn't even know that made a baby for years or when or why or yeah and so. My guess is like doing nice things for others. When people have this motivation works the same way right like selfishly natural selections like Oh help other people because reciprocity and you'll get all these goods leader and this is so great whereas the proximate level where like we just feel better if we do stuff for other people or we just really are motivated to do nice stuff rather people so sometimes it can be both and like. That's good yes. There's diminished returns when we satisfy ourselves so I can buy the perfect house and then I can buy the perfect couch and I can make the perfect meal and I can have the perfect wind and a certain point. I'm just going to Max out on things I can do for myself to amp up pleasure. It just keeps falling off whereas every person you help in the gratitude that you experience. That's not a diminished return. It doesn't kind of run out. Yeah and I think this is something that happiness researchers are just starting to figure out which is like so everything we do for ourselves. Has THIS APP teaching the researchers call it? He Donna Adaptation Right. Where it's like you buy yourself a new phone awesome for the first week but then you know over time you just get used to buy a new border bike and the first time you ride. It's great but then time number eighty seven. You ride it. You're just bored with it. But what's weird? Is that acts of kindness that we do to other people. Don't have that feature. I think is there like individual. There's a moment you do act of kindness and then you do another one it like you. Just don't get the adaptation to doing more of them. Each one is as good a hit. And so you you kinda end up helping yourself by investing and doing nice stuff for others because you just. It's not a subject to this attestation. Over time.

"And so in September nineteen, seventy eight, Robert Blakey summoned Florida mob boss, Santo traffic Kante to testify. Blinky recognized that there was no direct evidence connecting traffic Conti and the assassination of JFK traffic Conti was nowhere near Dallas in November nineteen sixty three. He was with his lawyer in his hometown of Tampa, Florida, but chief counsel Blakey believed that there were too many coincidences to be dismissed and incredibly. I believe that it was no conspiracy in the mob was not involved. I organized our investigations around the proposition that the mob didn't kill Kennedy, and I was wrong about that in terms of suspicion, they had the motive opportunity in means and discussed, not the specific, killing Kennedy in Dallas, but killing him. They discussed that traffic Conti fit right into the center of all these apparent coincidences. He was put under intense pressure during the committee hearing the chairman reminded him that John russillo had before he died hinted to associates that he knew who had arranged president, Kennedy's murder, but traffic Kante denied having any knowledge whatsoever. When asked if he knew Jack ruby traffic contests, stoic answer was quote, no, sir. I never remember meeting Jack ruby. The committee was desperately trying to find a link between traffic Conti and ruby who had made several trips to Cuba when traffic Conti was jailed by Castro. So when ram he always took the same stance. He never knew anything. Didn't remember anybody, but there's no clear link between trough Akande and ruby none in the world. Nobody's been able to establish trough account. They gotta Cuba because his own people, his own age, we're able to bribe the government at that time traffic aunties answers remained consistent to the very end. He never knew anything. Never knew anyone and had no knowledge whatsoever. It was a masterful performance after thirty months. Of investigation and twelve volumes of hearings and dependencies the house select committee on assessing Asians, drew to a close. The final report was published in nineteen seventy nine. It concluded that while the Muffin was not involved, it did not preclude the involvement of certain individuals Carlos Marcello of New Orleans and Santo traffic Conti of Florida, chief counsel Robert Blakey. We decided that there were shots from both directions and therefore there was a likely conspiracy. And we pointed to the most likely suspects as Carlos Marcello and Santo Trafford Condie. But we said we could not indicate with confidence that they did it, and that was our conclusion. The only irrefutable conclusion was that Lee, Harvey Oswald killed the president and Jack ruby killed Oswald. And despite the committee's best efforts in the end traffic Conti walked free. Even Robert Blakey's Rico law, which had dismantled the five crime families of New York failed to nail traffic onto. So when rap, there's no question about how crafty and husk sessile Santo traffic was now Santo trough. Akande was the only Mahboob to escape a big Rico. Twice. He was indicted under Rico and twice the charges against him. Dismissed just showed you his ability to survive and how clever and smart he was. In fact, he was the only mob boss. Joep is stone famous FBI investigator who infiltrated the Bonano family couldn't get in nineteen Eighty-three mob boss, Carlos Marcello was in prison on recketeering in bribery charges. The FBI placed an informant in his cell to see what Marcello knew about the Kennedy assassination Barcelo all but admitted to being involved. But before the courts were able to question traffic Conti about his friends, deathbed confession, his own health deteriorated and in nineteen eighty-seven traffic aunt died at the age of seventy two.
"santo" Discussed on Mafia
"But at the same time, how the CIA Mike count on a mafia, they thought the mafia could help because to mafia and specially Santo traffic Conti was close to the Cuban exiles who would damned greedy to get back also attorney Robert Blakey. But the real scandal involved is the assumption on the part of the CIA that the mafia was a group of hired killers. Typically a killing by the mafia. Raffia member is a matter of. Accommodation to another family, or if it's killing in in that family, it's done to protect the family, the snow transfer money. The mob is not on organization of hired killers that you go to and contract killing with the CIA's permission. The mafia went out to hire a hitman Sam giancana knew that when it came to Cuba there was only one man with the right connections, Santo traffic, Conti himself. That was just the guy man. This the was looking for a man, the belong to an organization that was skilled in murder and plots and was very unhappy lost a lot of money about what happened in Cuba and would do anything to get back there. And so in September nineteen sixty a meeting was arranged at the fountain blue hotel in Miami between the. By Chicago mob boss, Sam giancana and his chosen hitman traffic Conti. The CIA and the mob were now at the same table with a single sinister aim, an attempt on the world leaders, life traffic Kante was willing to go along with it. This was his chance to get rid of the man who he believed had betrayed him and was responsible for the fall of his casino empire in his committee testimony traffic Kante said it felt like going to war and that it felt patriotic because quote, the government of United States wanted it done. But his real motivations were personal here. So when Rava gam- traffic day was helping out to see I a of these luge in that he was helping them out because anything that worked to get rid of Castro would be a benefit to him. He didn't care who got rid. Castro is long as he was out and to county can go back and reclaim his five casinos and everything else going for him in Cuba. The point very simply the mob always can see favor than they do favor for the the law enforcement or government agency, then the government agencies in debt to them obligation. So it's an easy way of winning the game by playing your own caught. And now to plan the job, the agency I decided on a classic mobster hit Castro would die in a hail of bullets, crime authors, Thomas Repetto and Scott Dietschy. Yeah, the government idea was like World War Two. It just send your yours acids and they should fell down, but Jin Kana and Trevor Gandhi, and those people were better understand is that if you shoot Castro, you won't get rid of him. You'll get somebody just as bad and that you've gotta do this clever way. That's when all these poisoning plots were considered. Yeah, there there's something funny about the trying to tell them how to kill someone. And certainly when you look at the different methodologies that they wanted to use. I think the mob felt that getting someone in close to Castro doing the poison probably would have been a more pragmatic way of killing them. This is where they would take advantage of traffic, aunties connections in Cuba. He knew an official who could get close to Castro. So the point was they had his bizarre plot with a authored poison pills trophic Kante and. The sackful of money about one hundred fifty thousand dollars, and they thought they believe this pop possibility that Truffer content through his sources could get Castro to some restaurant with would slip poison pills into his food. A plan was agreed on and the CIA officers handed over a suitcase with the cash. Now, there was no turning back. The CIA had just paid the mom to kill a world leader traffic Kante left the hotel with a suitcase full of cash. But the money and revenge on Castro were only part of the deal. More. Importantly, law enforcement agencies would now turn a blind eye to mafia operations. This was how the mafia operated there had to be a quid pro quo. He was told least. Claimed he was told that if you did this little job for the government, he was home free. Nobody would bother him anymore. Traffic hunt, they news crazy and he later boasted to Frank Redondo his lawyer..
