"So it was very much about the pragmatics of arrival and also a willingness on behalf of the civil servants involved to transmit that information now in the setting also because of the failure of the integration courses. That people sitting here might be registered for but not called up for that Where they have a few hours a day and in a way i think this snapshot is also one all of a system in transition because the way in which civic integration has been outsourced to the market in the netherlands is very much scott shen and municipalities are pulling back the reigns precisely because they want to have a say here and they're critical on civic integration. So it could well be that. This particular picture is historic a few months from now so very good point actually also good transition to our next story because what we can see here is that there's various kinds of integration measures. Obviously and in this particular case although it's as you said very pragmatic and possibly can scrub it. S s monday in it provides a sort of additional layer supplement. Actually gives many new. Yeah even as you said a very basic ways of how to achieve integration but of course other measures that are very important as well and some that are arguably perhaps even more essential than that is virk and of course education and paradoxically here. It's not always at all says evidence that governments will provide stove kind of absolute fundamentals in terms of education. So tell us a bit about what we can see on the photo.

And even when I was little, I remember having a dairy. spilled my guts into a bit even before that. Books have always been. My best friend and a lot of ways when ever I was upset and. I would go find a book to comfort myself with or when I wanted to learn something new. I would find a book that could teach me what it was that I wanted to know in. That's always hal.

Let's talk about the covers themselves because you've got some interesting colors. were. You involved in sketching these out? Did you have helped? Tell you what people who are lessening can't see what we're looking at, so tell us what we're seeing on these covers of these books. So when I originally started this writing practice, it was just a journaling practice for myself. And a few months into it I felt this nudge that this wasn't just for me that this was writing practice that was just for me. Any longer and I wanted to turn it into a book of love notes to my body, because I was really trying to change my relationship with my body, and how I spoke to my body, and what I thought about my body. and. It was very clear to me always that that could be illustrated. And I wanted it to be whimsical and bright and colorful, and really a celebration and I have a very good friend, Mike idea who is an artist, and that's exactly the kind of art that she creates its whimsical. It's colorful. It's beautiful and so I went to breakfast with her one morning and said Hey. I I'm sitting on this project and I'd love for you to partner with me and luckily for me, she said yes and. I, as I wrote, these love notes to my body. I would send them to her. and she created paintings for each one of the love notes, and what spark did so brilliantly was pulled from all of her paintings. We had over paintings. They pulled from her paintings images to create the covers for the three books. One book turned into three. Yeah, notice. You've got When you're writing into your body, you can see a body part that may or may not resemble your own, but as sort of a sketch there they've done to kind of illustrate what what you're riding to talking about.

"Oh, I was gonna carry on doing that because we just roll forward work from the last year to the next year. So we cold out all the things we were stopping doing. It was all called is this as usual, or keeping the lights on. And we just stopped it and again that gives people freedom to go and explore and experiment. And also the ability to actually drive continuing pregnant without how to work harder for mastery purpose meaningful work, and then Feroze making sure that we recognize behaviors and give people the chance through the best work of their life, for me the playbook that you mentioned before, with something that we selfishly run into later to scale our teams actually still fondly remember the day, trying to Mike, one of our co founders, I had a talk that I used to do called the secret sauce of atlassian. And he said, why don't you just call it the souls on this books? That's why he's loaded. And I'm not. And so, will I why haven't I and I realized that my old habit of I need to keep this in close with still with me, and so three years ago. Shared all of our ways of working externally and every time we find a new way of looking externally. We publish it on our website. And now we've actually retired our internal vision of team playbook. And we just use the same version, we ship to our customers. So it's one of those mindsets that even though I knew that intuitively, I knew open a US free to share. I wasn't an occasion, these, those reminders that the more we can improve the world around us. The more we can improve ourselves at the individual Scott Shen dumb, fielded a few questions from the audience and the first one asked about the techniques for leaders to unlearn dome us leading strand in Bank, and Zayd as an example, the successful and the reason to share the names on this about timing. We feel as an example, and I can talk about that because we've, we've been quite public with them around the things done things that they did, really, well, first of all, they're CEO set the time from the top like here is the state of the banking industry. His state of the financial services industry, his state of an organization we would a huge amount of stuff to be proud of but. If we're doing the same things we're doing today in twenty years, we were exist like when you share the accidental threat, actually the way Shane did that was we talked about the response. We're getting from their customers. So it wasn't necessarily just an internal change. It wasn't a consultant, same to an optimization. It was aimed at customer, saying, we will leave you even though we've been loyal, we will leave if you don't change the way you serve and delights. And so they went for an agile transformation that drove new ways of leaving a new ways of working, but they've been thoroughly consistent after that process been very open as the explored. They shed a lot of things that didn't work. They've also shared the stuff that has worked, and they've been amazingly brave. One stays, they got every single employee to reapply for their jobs, including the CEO and even the person ruined the transformation hats reapply for his job, because they wanted to set the time this was a real change. It wasn't a PowerPoint presentation talking about change or some posters, it was actually going to drive this. And if you look at them now in Tim's the vibrancy in the organization. In the engagement levels the speed of innovation, customer satisfaction ratings all the things you'd want to measure are improving, so the indicators strong. I compare that to a lot of other organizations like we know we need to change and we want to change. We're going to talk about change, but they just fail that hurdle of actually changing and that's because if you don't change this quarter you don't fail. Right. If you're a big Bank and you don't make any changes quarter. This quarter will be fine because the change we're going to make this quarter payback in a year, two years, three years. And so for a lot of these industries, the long term nature of their business means they can have short term success that just not going to be around in five or ten years. And so one of the things that we share with them is how we balance our portfolio Lassen between the best. We need to make for this year, and the money will spend this year for future years, because for rose win building products for our customers that they want today. We have to build the products that you don't know you yet need. Tomorrow and next week and that takes leap of faith. That means roses when we launch new features. We hope that they will work. And sometimes you tell us that they don't, and that's called us great feedback. When we can on that for a lot of industries. They've never had to work that way existed behind the closed door. They, they had a strategy function at planned that produced a three year five year plan and all they did was going execute that and then do a post implementation review five years later. So what we're seeing is whether the burning platform, it's easy to drive that change for some organizations. They are sound so much margin and so much profit. They think they need to change, but the actual types, not there, and for some of those, we share our story, but it's up to them to decide when to do it, one of the question related to how it lesson was winning the global war for talent for me. We import a lot of talent. Yes. We still with some of the visa regulations. We still managing to import some talent that regulation is challenging. But he's not preventing us. We will also got creative with how we invest with the whole of the schooling systems so that we can locally sort of nature, the right talent. We're having to go zillions year right to invest in, in schooling systems. We've been running programs where a whole school teachers, parents and school kids came and spent the weekend into the campaign, our office, Scott maximum leaders coating with them so that we can get and actually wasn't the kids that the problem is the parents. The parents saying this software thing. Sounds like a gimmick. But if you become an accountant, Jimmy, you'll have a job for life, and I might know you can tell you a story about that. And so we still getting advice from, from the politicians we elected them. Some of the parents are making some challenging decisions and then for us, we're across twelve locations in the world. So I'm very proud that I work for an Australian company, but we've got offices all over the world. And we support a global network of people, so I don't think we've just supporting the Australian economy sometimes Feroze in Australia. We can Pete with the banks, if you want to in open an office in Silicon Valley, you'll be competing with Google. Facebook, the Cyrus or even worse. Right. And that wishing that they had the Australian system. So patiently we just have to look at what we can do, we recently up in an office in Bangalore, not because of low labor rights, but because of access to talent. Right we to scale from north to about one hundred fifty in less than a year. Right. And so for us, it's about finding the talent where they are sometimes that talent. We relocate to Australia. We get to buy over a thousand people in Australia, and hiring the right person in will be a force multiplier. Sometimes we hire in location. Sometimes we hire remote. Sometimes we hire in our Colo Cates teams around the world. We've got a multitude of ways of dealing with challenge. The fact remains that we all in the same Wolfer talent. And so for rose. We scale where we can and the one thing we refuse to do is to lower our hiring ball. So sometimes he'd rather miss having target, but make sure we get to write an amazing discussion, will you please? Thank you..

"Welcome back to the podcast with me, Jonathan puddle. This is absurd. Number forty five for interview Canadian church planter and entrepreneur author and all around kind of renaissance guy Rohadi. You know, you're cool when you go just by first name, this is a fun interview continuing out, Scott Shen on how to be the church in a new era issues for church leaders and pastas to consider as we engage the culture here twenty years almost into the twenty first century, I hope you enjoy. Hey, everybody. Welcome back to the pud cast with me, Jonathan puddle. Thanks very much for joining me today today, I have yet another Canadian on the show. I clearly have an affinity for that. I think as a Canadian wheat, we have to listen to a lot of American experts on many subjects. So I really like to have my fellow countrymen and women on the show today. My guest is Rohadi. He is an author speaker church. Planter and entrepreneur from Calgary Calgary, right? Calgary calgary. So I've been following Howdy for a bunch of years on social media really enjoyed his perspectives. And I've recently been reading his book, cold thrive, ideas to lead the church in post Christendom. Welcome to the show, sir. Thank you so much for having me. I really appreciate the fact that you are being diligent to bring in Canadian voices to the full, because you're right we care too much of what our neighbors down south think absolutely absolutely. So judging from your Instagram, you seem to spend a lot of times cycling and hanging out in the beautiful mountains. Can we all just move to L Berta? Can we agree that? That's good. You know there are a lot of advantages in L Berta, culturally. It's different from the rest of Canada, just like every province in an I'm blessed to be in Calgary, which is from door to door. I could probably drive forty five minutes and be at a mountain and just start climbing start walking. So, yes, you may come. They stay. I was last in, in Calgary and bandwidth two years ago, but almost exactly two years ago, and I was reminded that there's so much more to Canada than southern Ontario. Which sounds very southern Ontario of me to say, I recognize that well you've you've been recently, I only visited on -tario Toronto Hamilton for the first time last year. So. Same. I think that we need to our I need to personally venture in explore more of Canada. What broke out here? The auto remember what the first reason was mutual friends in Hamilton. There was a conference which was called is called reimagined which is an offshoot from the parish collective, which is based out of Seattle. So they are doing the whole parish ministry, revitalizing focus into the neighborhood. And so they invited me out into Hamilton for their conference in the fall, and that was good for number of reasons, but particularly because it was a chance to connect with some like minded voices, and out of that has actually sprung some interesting work and gatherings, particularly around Christians of color. And we were talking about what Canada does and thinks, and how it's different from the US in the area of. Of carving out space and having conversations around particularly race and culture Canadians in Canada. And Canadian Christians and churches, we don't do a very good job at of this, and their few spaces safe from Braves spaces for Christians of color to just work out their own existence and identity. And so out of that we didn't intend it, but out of that came some new relationships that started to build this new thing. I don't know what it is entirely. But it's this thing and it's been building momentum since October of last year. So that's exciting. So that's that was another reason why I came. Yeah. That's definitely good. Every time I traveled to the US, I'm reminded of how different culture and multiculturalism plays out there than it does here in Canada. You know, I mean, I, I grew up in well, I grew up in New Zealand, but I grew up as well, must my teenage years in Toronto and a huge Melia of cultures in my high school, I was frequently the only white guy in my class, but that doesn't mean. See when I go to the states is so often, at least what's visually represented is really just two races. And that's painting an immensely broad strokes. But it's I find it so different here. I don't know how it plays out for you in Calgary. But certainly in Toronto. I'm the only if I'm the only white guy in a class that only means that I'm, I'm one of twenty six different cultures or thirty different cultures represented in a in a classroom. And I you know. Americans often will comment. Oh, wow. Yeah. That sounds like a real melting pot, which is not a term that we use up here. No, we're not so big on assimilation. We like the notion of multiculturalism of, of playing out that mosaic. So it's the notion that you are welcome into Canada. But I think in recent years, particularly around what is happening in the US, and so much of their cultural influence, spills over here. We're creating now a sense of or perhaps that creating, but the sense of nationalism has has gained momentum in Canada. I remember a phone conversation with someone who lives in Toronto and we used to live in Detroit. So he's an American and he said, I don't know how to deal with being in Canada. It's so different because at least in the. US. I was visible. You didn't like me and he's black and he was talking about interactions race interactions in the city of Detroit, and he said, at least you'd be acknowledged, you may not be like, but you would be acknowledged, people would see you down the street, maybe they'd walk to the other side of the street. But in Canada here, I'm totally invisible. Now, I think that might there are some cultural pieces to that and Canadians being a little bit more shy. But it made me think of how we approach the issue of racing culture and are we in fact, pretending that there isn't a problem when there is, and I believe that's actually a real deep narrative in our culture as Canadians in that we have deflected the issue of race and racism, and sustain racism, culturally as an American problem. We've done that on purpose. We've. Said, well that's an American problem. But here in Canada, we don't do that. I mean just look around. None of us are racist. We don't do racists things so racism, doesn't exist yet. Of course, we're not talking about what is sitting right in front of us. We're not talking about if the KKK is marching in the streets were talking about tomorrow, often than not the, the system that is at play. What's system is dominant? And what is the expectation for people who are newcomers to Canada? For example, do you try to fit in to dominant culture and lose a piece of yourself or will you be welcomed and for your own identity in the things that make you, you so for newcomers, and I can remember when I first came to count, and this is more important from my dad how to fit in well, you keep your head down work hard, and do that? Mosaic piece right. Assimilate as best as you can and ensuing generations. I. Think are given. I would call it a gift, but are given these opportunities now to start carving out space for themselves and say, well, actually, we're going to press against what is dominating our existence and trying to form us into a way of thinking and being. That's not a part of our identity, and so Canada's very much and just right now, what was it today or yesterday the final report came out on the missing and murdered indigenous women. And so there are some critical pieces within our psyche within our culture as Canadians that we need to address when it comes to systemic issues such as race and the church needs to be at the forefront of that conversation. And quite frankly, it's not present. Yeah. Certainly I was reading a book earlier in the year. A fair country by John Ralston? Soul. Have you read the I haven't he's not indigenous? His thesis, is essentially that all of the values that Canada really truly espouses and is proud of our indigenous values. That if you look at the positive impact of Canada around the world. You could say, you know, our peacekeeping mentality the tendency for Canadians to be willing to have unresolved tension in relationships and a number of other things. He says, the they're European their European colonies all over the world that don't do what Canada does New Zealand doesn't do the same Australia doesn't do the same. And he, he traces through history and through the land and through exploration and a bunch of things, essentially saying that Canada has, you know, the indigenous people had this bond that they had worked together, and of the circle, essentially, where everybody there was room for everybody, and we could expand the circle to welcome newcomers in it expanded the richness of who we are. And when the French came the circle was expanded, and when the English came the circle was expanded, obviously, we in our history at some point, the year peans said, oh, this looks nice. I'll take it all. But the but the issue he's he posits the Canadians, especially wrestle with today is that we have no idea of our own cultural identity. We look at the United States, we have one model we look at Europe, we have one model we like neither, but we have no other narrative, and largely because we do not listen to indigenous narratives and the more that we listened to indigenous narratives with more. Will actually find. Oh, yeah. This sounds like the experiment that we've been trying here for two hundred years in the indigenous, people would say that is because this land can only be lived in one way. And so much of what he was not at anyway, advocating for Judeo Christian values, and certainly he his understanding of Judeo Christian values he would have suggested work in opposition to, I think indigenous worldview. But the more that I look at Christ and the inclusivity of the gospel, the more, I do feel like you know, it's been co opted by a European ideal or an American triumphalism that somehow the church does have to be involved in like you said, leading the way in identity discussions yet. I feel like the church has such a terrible track record, you know, that, that same churches connec. Acted in and. Perpetrating the very problem that you are stating. So how do we extricate ourselves from that if the dominant if most institutions in North America reflect part of this, colonial triumphalism identity, where we to go? No, I think, of course, there's, there's grand hope. And it's not also bad. But that that is a fundamental problem, particularly around dominant white evangelical ISM, or white Protestantism. There are some issues here of, of marrying empire and church. And we have the result would we're dealing with right now in the church that is largely incapable of, connecting culturally, least beyond itself. Yeah. So that, that, that's exactly right. And this is what I think, what I loved about what you began to unpack in your book thrive. So. So for my listeners, I've been doing a series, as you hopefully know, on church, life, Michele models. And so one of the last few weeks and so Hadi's book, specifically looks at how to lead the church in this post Christendom ura. So I thought I, I'd love to have his thoughts added into this discussion. So the trajectory looks a little bit like this from the last couple of guests, I had Michael broder on the show, and he was quick to, to say that look, every member of the church has to be quipped empowered. We have so far pasta era, with the, you know, the man of God upfront is important person for the global church to be effective every member has to be fully functioning. And, you know, he talked about working yes, towards healthy church has healthy family, but that family is not just a place to, to be, but to become an to grow and to, you know, to move into your your. Destiny. So my next guest, Chris Heinz last week was explaining that, you know, most of us most people that are in churches today have arrived via kind of relational evangelism. Real human relationships rather than sort of drive by. Door to door. He talked about assaulting people with the truth. He said, can we actually meet people's practical and relational needs like human to human without being weirdos? And in the process, actually earning the true right to speak into someone's life. It's assaulting. Yeah. He used that term. Yeah. He said assaulting people with. That's it can often be violent for sure. Yes. So I thought it would be. Yeah, I'd love to t- to bring you in this sort of, at that point. And maybe maybe for some of my listeners who just off super familiar with the term post Christendom. What does that what does that mean to you? Exactly. And why is that a huge deal while I think an easier way to explain post Christendom because I think if academics were on the show or listening. They would say, but America or Canada was never really a Christian nation. Post Christian though, post-christian, which is a slight nuance from there. It's a description of where we are culturally in Canada in, in America in the west. Is this notion that the church no longer has inherited privilege and say into the day to day lives of Canadians?.

They want to address inequality and social ills great Patel great stories to and that's from. Well. Thank you. Well. Hello, tom. This is grace. I had some thoughts on the last couple of episodes with six degrees of freedom. I was literally gripping the seat of my couch the whole time while watching this literally at the edge of my seat. I had a feeling that something odd was going on when the French shields are closed. There's no other windows that was a bit of a tip off. But it didn't give away anything too specific. I like to the jumps forward with the title cards and the countdown. It reminded me of the same technique used in Stanley Kubrick's the shining where you get closer and closer and closer to something big happening. But you just get little crumbs leading you there. Also, I don't know if anyone else had the same thought. But when there's that blip on the monitor of a humanoid outline will the guy's making repairs. I kinda thought did he just get possessed by something? And I questioned it again when we go into the restroom as himself in the first person, and he's taking notes, I honestly don't know if anybody else had the same thought. But it kind of reminded me of doctor who episode I saw called midnight. It's kind of a similar theme there. I really don't know if they got to Mars or not if this was a simulation of some sorts. It's possible that they are on Mars or they're just in death valley, California, something small, I don't know if it has an significance but in replay if you look carefully at Jordan Peele during his opening narration, you'll see a headline in the newspaper that reads new experimental rocket ship crashes outside of Reno Nevada a callback to a classic episode or possibly call forward. Not sure we don't know. I do like the idea of how the aliens had underestimated humanity. And maybe it is. Another chance though, personally I'd love for us to really get our stuff together as a species before spreading out into the universe. That would probably be optimal. With the recent episode not all men again, very gripping. And engaging. And I did not know how this episode would end I do have personal experience when it comes to the issue presented here having been through something like that it instilled in me what to look for and what not to look for in people in general, let alone men, I guess, you take from what you experience and learn from it and become a much stronger person, I'm ridiculously lucky to have so many positive and caring male role models and friends in my life. And I'm so very grateful for that the point of whether to be aggressive or respectful being choice, and how symbolically the sun is the one who makes a change is kind of important. It's like that's kind of what the episode is trying to say I feel that the next generation will. Hopefully, be more educated in understanding and empathic about this issue and not have their actions strictly driven by mckim. Oh. I also really like how the main character starts off saying. Yes. Yes. Yes, sir. Yes, sir. And ends just with a defiant. No also thinking back was Jordan peels closing monologue. When he talks about all this trouble over a few little rocks. I'm thinking that might be a double entendre just saying goes without saying the acting and direction just phenomenal across the board. And I do hope to see more psychological horror elements throughout the show, which I feel like we will. That's my preferred horses, Spence genre. I'm so excited that we get these episodes at this time, there's so many important issues that need to be brought up into Scott Shen and needs to be talked about. And you know, we have I think there's a big over our king point that as a species overall, we have a lot of issues and those are big ones. But you know, maybe we deserve to have another chance. You know? I'm definitely going to be sad when this new season. Is over. But I'm ever so excited that we're getting a new season next year. Can't wait. Thanks so much, Tom. Cheers. Hither

Goto Lutheran hour dot org there. You'll find audio from previous weeks information about the program and its speakers links to free resources are mobile app and much more go to Lutheran hour dot org. Once again, here's Dr Michael Ziegler. Thanks, mark. I have in the studio with me today, my friend, Chuck Aaron also my teacher, and Chuck you're on sabbatical now and very thankful that you could join us today and to talk thank you. I'm very happy to be here. And or I can't say how proud I am of you and your yours. Luther Nour's speaker. The teacher becomes the student. Thank you. Well, I've especially with this topic. You have been so formative in my thinking, and I'm grateful to you. We'll start with a more personal one of all the creatures with which you might identify as a connected to them through the earth. Genesis says what creatures do you identify with well in terms of wild creatures would have to say cranes and with regard domestic creatures. Probably my daughter's twelve year old labrador retriever. Oh, very good. What is it about cranes that are endearing to you? That's a really good question. I'm not sure if I have the best answer to that. But I happen to be reading a book years ago by our own naturalist, Peter Mathieson, it's called the birds of heaven and happened to be on cranes. Well, at the end of the book, he said one way not to be overwhelmed by everything in environment, and within Chretien is to truth one creature wants species, and everything you can about it in the process, you're going to learn about the ecology then about environment, you're gonna ball out of other things. So I chose cranes. So speaking of the potential to be overwhelmed this coming Monday is Earth Day, April twenty second, and it could be overwhelming because it just seems like such a bold thing to proclaim that it's this is about all earth and Christians. I've heard have different perspectives on the value of such day. So imagine you heard to Christians arguing about. Earth Day, one four one against how would you try to give them a common ground with which they approached this day? Well, my guess is coming from two different vantage points, those who don't like Earth Day, or are you against it probably reacting against people that they perceived to be worshiping your to be Pentium stick, and you don't want to support that much encourage it those who feel that it's perhaps a good thing to observe maybe coming at more from the standpoint of the popular non Christian perception of Christians is that Christians are more interested in the life to come. And they are interested in life here on earth. And so it's important for Christians to show. That's not in fact, the case. In one sense entire Christian store to be honest is basically the story of creation. Right. It's a story of God, creating the Chretien. Us messing it up and God restoring it. So to focus only on the second article of the creator, redemption, third the creed and sanctification apart from the I just doesn't make sense those redemption sanctification take place within creation so extending this a little bit in our political climate, especially when the environment comes into the Scott Shen. We're often met with doomsday scenarios about the state of the environment in the future or outright, dismissal of the environment. As a concern. How does the Christian story offer something different than either those? Yeah, that's a very good question. I think it's an important one for Christians to answer. First of all, I do think Christians needed distinguish their politics from their faith and the. Collagen politics can come into play on both sides of that question. Secondly, I think what Christians of bring to the table is both a sense of realism and a sense of hope the realism is this. We cannot save the earth. That is not our job. That is what Christ does oral is a little bit more like what I would call EMT's. Arriving on the scene of an accident. You don't perform surgery there. You're trying to stabilize the patient to get the patient to the hospital where an into the operator room in some ways our current role. Here is to keep things going to serve stabilize the patient. We're holding the house together were patching it up. But in hope in the confident hope that Christ is going to ultimately, renovate the house and and make it new again. And I love John's emphasis on the the new day the first day of the week as if to say that this renovation has already begun in the most important way with Jesus. And this is the one thing that Christians really do bring to the table because there have been some studies have shown that environmental some of the most things -iety field people in our country. Because party despite all of our efforts things don't seem to be improving, and it can become perhaps discouraging that they're not improving or getting fixed as we were like, but again Christian say, well, we don't approach this from a cross benefit analysis. We approach is because it's the right thing to do. And in a less anxious way as you were saying earlier, just come and say just chill. Yeah. Gods got this. He's got this. And in the meantime, our labor is not in vain right to borrow from the last verse for quit fifteen our neighbors. Not in vain. In the end. We'll see how it is not in vain when Christ makes things new again. So when we do care for the environment. It's a witness to the hope that we have. It's a witness that we know off things are going to be restored. And. Looking after endangered species, which is one of the reasons I'm interested in cranes and so forth. It's a way of testifying to the hope will thank you for being with us today and testifying to the hope that we have in the risen Christ. Thank you. Talk by Lord and trusting in his promises, we are bold to pray. Our father who art in heaven, Allah would be name vi- kingdom. Come. I will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day, our daily bread and forgive us, our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil for nine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever and ever, Amen. Received the benediction of the Lord, the Lord bless you. And keep you the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you the Lord look upon you with his favor and give you peace. Amen.

"Twenty minutes away. His huge opinions on a crazy day in the NBA. NHL Stanley Cup playoffs have been fantastic. I think the Stanley Cup playoffs. If you look at balance. Where in obviously you've seen this year with Colorado Calgary Columbus to the Tampa Bay. I don't think other play offs. Yeah. Wildcard could get a top seat on the road once in a while and the NFL major league baseball. But the balance of power. The NHL. I think wins out over any other sport. It's like trying to think is good to get a a one. It's like watching Detroit, and Milwaukee you knew the series was over before it started. You literally knew the pistons had no shot, even though Griffin was warrior and coming out for game three, and they got rolled at home. I think the NFL you look at every series, and you say could go one way or another spin that way, not just because the salary cap. It's been that way for a long time. You can join us five two one two four CBS. That's eight five five two one two four two two seven at Saturday hill on Twitter, Saturday healed show on Facebook. Teddy an Atlanta are you there? Thank teddy, Lincoln and Tennessee. How's it going tonight? Do my friend. Great great. I do want to say we lost a good win here in east Tennessee, mister car Genesee legend, we lost him today. So condolences to his family. Amen. Amen to the cub family friend and Tennessee family. Thank you for that. I just wanted to weigh in on the topic of the night. A lot of I am African American a lot of people. And our community. Wonder what is the infatuation with the history that represents racist? And I had a great a buddy of mine put it to me this way. It was like could you imagine if African Americans head OJ Simpson play. And white people were offended by that and excuse to waive it would be well that was just a better time in football. When what backs flourish? Ero the running back during the. Like best. If it's hurtful. History is hurtful to a lot of people. So if you are sensitive religious, whatever person you are why not taking into consideration. Love is show. I'm get fair have been. Thank you Lincoln in Tennessee. And I think this entire question over Kate Smith, and if somebody saying some show tunes. In the thirties that were incredibly insensitive. But they didn't live a life of being racial insensitive. Would you hold that against him? Up until two thousand nineteen like the flyers in the Kate Smith. What if your if your life wasn't that? We we just condemn do. We lump everybody, you know, we're trying to get away from stereotypes. She sang some songs that she sing songs in the seventies that we're racist. I. Hanno should have a mistake back in the thirties. Tarnish a statue erected in Iran or Philadelphia being covered and wrapped up and tied up. I don't think. So I don't. Can I can I look at shack make him? Do I hold him accountable forever because he was racially insensitive. No and the lyrics. She sung in those songs that were show tunes. Don't think they were propaganda towards racism. It was just a it was a racist America and the thirties to be honest look at Jesse Owens. He talked about it being celebrated. In other countries more than he was celebrated at home, and he had to go back to work at a gas station. When he was the greatest athlete in the world. And what he did in front of Hitler. And ironically, Kate Smith. Help raise war bonds anything about that number six hundred million. She helped raise. Which would be eleven billion today to fight the war against Hiller. Jesse Owens is. One of the greatest moments in sports and to me as a as a man doing a sports radio show across the US and Canada right now on three hundred fifty five radio stations. If if I go through history. And I talk about the greatest moments in sports. I go Jesse Owens. What he did in Berlin? Jackie Robinson has incredible strike. I look at Texas western in the first all starting. Black five in college basketball because I look at where college basketball is today. With the fab five did and transform in the game modernizing, even if you didn't like them. LV Arcadian Larry Johnson. Stacy Augmon Anderson hunt. Hey, got eighty Olympics naturally with what the US did. Alley. Tiger woods. Let me look at my Michael. Them just talking my life. Very Sanders who to me is still my I'll always will be my sports idol. Nothing against them or Jim Brown or Walder. Very sanders. God gave him gifts that no other running back has ever had in football. Or nor the kick returner had back in the day at Oklahoma state. I look at the way Steph curry splashed, Golden State. I. In Colin Kaepernick that story which I think the Scott Shen from football perspective is over now. It did start a conversation which has been mentioned. But also it was politically motivated. It was no matter what you wanna say. But politics in sports have gone hand in hand. Like, I said Mexico City alley. Jackie Robinson, the politics of think about it of a black man in front of Adolf Hitler in Berlin. In what he did. To kind of put a wrench in the white area. N- race movement. That kind of. He was a massive body blow. To racism at that time a little that. We know what would lie ahead. So I kind of look at Kate Smith. In what she did. And helping raise six hundred million dollars in US war bonds. To help fight. The Vegas hatemonger the world has ever seen. It would be Adolf Hitler. And you hold it against her onto songs. Because of the politically correct society we live in today if you're the flyers or the aunties. And I kind step back and go. No. That was at least what I would Wikipedia went through the stories that wasn't her life. Her life was given back. Jesse owens? Jackie robinson. How do we learn? We learn through reading we learned through movies history. And you can look at sports in America. And you can go through the thirties right about that time. We're talking about today with Kate Smith, and you begin with Jesse and you go to Jackie. And you look at alley. And you look that in the sixties the right to vote. Was an issue color your skin. Sixties? That's. Less than sixty years ago. But I still believe in my heart that the majority of us don't feel. The racism and bigotry that others. Do I believe that? I hear these conversations I the back and forth. I live live with my children. Then you don't know my kids here. They don't see color. My son wants to go over to his Krishna's Indian friend, and they want to see a movie they wanna play video games. I it's not a perfect world. But if you ask yourself sports at America, and if you wanna know of America preciado, great athletes. That most of the greatest athletes ever in our lives. No matter. How old you are? Right now listening to this broadcast. Have been. African americans. Jesse Jackie will. Ali if flying to the seventies. He became the emergence of the NFL. You heard the OJ as Jim Brown's..

"And I don't blame that because I test matters. But there's more than one way to get a cat if Kevin Durant. I mean when you watch Kevin Durant shoot this basketball. I mean, LeBron kids you like that? Now, he can't run over people. Like LeBron does put the bronchoair shoot like him. I mean, it does matter that given to rent monitor monetarily, speaking terms of numbers. Kevin durant? Does what LeBron does? How do we know that? I'll say this and our goal after this. Okay. So big the big play the game on the Bronx, which Sudas aware of them say that I'll give you that the broadcast can't shoe like Katie mccabe's on his best. They and and big of games. It pays the way the Brander win. He has that he wants to. But you were taking the granted. But you can put it you can put it that way. You know, what my retort to that would be Devitt? He's an have to because LeBron even though LeBron can score. And even though he can shoot the reality. Is that he's a playmaker? Who does those things? Kevin Durant is a pure sesson. So it's all about your preference. Why would if I'm on the court, Devon, right? And I'm on the court. What you and I got a better chance of making a shot from thirty. You do from fifteen. Why would I pass you the ball? Like like what you say is preference. Do I want to force up against I even though I know him better suit. Or would I wanna make the right place to the the guy was wide open? I, you know, preference. I guess it is. All I'm saying is that the fact that this is the Scott Shen means that you don't be offended by knocking LeBron off that pedestal. But maybe you need to think about whether or not you're offending Kevin Durant by not putting him on it because he's that elite. That's all I'm saying. Appreciate the call man.

"And also Tracy says some of the rules and rule. Emphasis changes have been different. So the point totals were seeing come back up, and that's why you're kind of getting back to that era of you're kind of getting back to a comparison where you're comparing or what? They do with the rules. Not in my lifetime with another player score a hundred points. And I think you still don't think that's going to have come in. Kobe at eighty one. I was talking last night. I actually think in today's gang cope probably could score hundred points. So this is interesting lifetime. No, maybe could though maybe. But I'm just saying that I think he could. So look when we were sitting down we're putting out hardens thirty point scoring streak, right? Which is now each thirty games before this the only two guys in the modern era to ever do it. We're you and cope you had fourteen and Coby had sixteen the fact that it never even got close to thirty. Where James harden is now I think maybe speaks to era because I would certainly you could have your argument about James harden and Kobe, but you can't say that James harden is twice as good as Kobe Bryant. So therefore, there has to be some in for me the statistical sort of emphasis isn't as much on like, hey, are we comparing this era to this era? I just think we have so many stats now, we have advanced stats, and they're helpful. And they really have given us a better idea of sort of the worth and contributions. Some people were making on the court. They opened our eyes the things that people are doing that might not show up in those original maybe five or six categories of stats, but they still don't show stats. Don't show all the defensive contributions make they don't show the leadership contributions people make. So when we get into the MVP discussion, and we get into sort of who's the best player. Scott shen. Sometimes I think we over rely on stats when they they still these tell somewhat more than they used to. But they don't tell every James harden street is very impressive. If you look at his usage rate is extremely high. If you look at the amount of three pointers, he take is extremely high Morton, I've taken Kobe taking 'em j taken ever in our careers. Thank he's probably like average thirteen threes. You probably want to average four threes your career averaged probably tips. Yeah. So I look at him from his perspective. I mean, he should put up these type numbers if he's taken that many shots the uses rate he should put up as far as Russ's numbers average in a triple double. Now that to me is the hardest. But then if you look at the the possessions the mount of possessions in today's game if you look at offense rebounds, you get off his rebound. There's fourteen seconds on the shot clock. Not twenty four feet that you speed the game spoiled. So it's gonna be a lot more because you got to that size. You gotta get the rebounds. And so and then you gotta make plays. So I think it's hard to compare to see which one is more difficult. So I was just I ever Forbes him she average three tenths on your threes. Imagine your career is imagine you taking threes threes. Imagine a point set you average, and you was a guy that got to the free throw line as well. Right. It'd be different definitely this air. I'm always thought that Russ, you know, the fact that when he. He has a triple double the thunder usually win. I think that correlation matters. So it doesn't bother with this always hunting..

"I was wondering what what time does your guests think that the good term start investing in gold were or some of the key signs to look for to really start taking this extremely serious. That's that's a good question. If we're looking for signposts, when will we know that things are going to take a downturn quickly or that that is just ahead. A re a quick rise in interest rates driven by the fed. In other words, if the long bond taking a dramatic beating in terms of price and a dramatic rise in terms of yield. When you see the long bond, all of a sudden shoot up in a dramatic fashion. Having tested its bottom and bounce stuff. That's your indicator that interest rates have stopped going down. And we'll start going up, and you can look for the signs, but you're on a steady upward course by Frank gold and silver coins. Metals and commodities every single tangible that I can think of is just starting to March straight up and the momentum. Is there the psychology is there? I would just look for that slow steady price increase, and when you see gold break four fifty you don't need any more confirmation than that. It's off to the races after that, really. And again, though here we are is it not strange to you Andrew that the stock market is in this seemingly unstoppable buying frenzy and gold is rising at the same time. I just I can't figure that out. Well, it proves to me that it's not a healthy market. If in fact, the stock market was rising at these rates and the bond market interest rates were falling for legitimate reasons than gold would be beaten down all time low. Exactly. In fact, we're looking at a fifteen year low on the bond, then you're right gold should be nothing. They should be throwing it out out of window. But they're not they're not why because that that fuel in the stock market. The fuel in the bond market is not the result of a healthy economy. But rather the result of excess government funding where the the Treasury Secretary is taking money. That's not supposed to be circulating. It's supposed to be sitting aside in the pension fund. And he is circulating it to pay the debt. That's what's causing this recent rise. If you look at the the increases in the supply of real money, it's been remarkable. And that's what really fuels inflation. Remember? That's all inflation is is an increase in the supply of money. All right, west of the Rockies, you're on the air with under Gaza high. Hello there.

And while you're passionate about it. And how life has kind of led you to what you do today. Thanks now. I work as I I call myself an accidental academic because I were in a university, and as well as university Iran full service consulting firm, where I do everything from HR vise to public speaking and pot of my underpinnings of all about as I believe that if we can become will self away out if we can work out if things that drives the things attempted to things that daren't support them, we can become more empowered to actually Ababba cells. So I think that often what happens is that people will this is just too. I am and what if you could understand who you are and say how it serves you and also say when it's not saving you. So that you get graded choice in that. Because oftentimes people will say, well, I don't like with that person 'cause they prickly and I said, well, they behaviors prickly. I'm sure they probably fundamentally is if you actually a different circumstance, so I really wanna work with people. So that they can become the massive arm life Annalisa guide. There are in life in a way that is useful for them. And why is this purpose? So important to you. How did you get pulled kind of in in this direction that you have an aha moment. Or was it just kind of a combination of all of your experiences? I think that life ROY he said challenging thought to to look at his challenges in different ways. And I think that I was very very fortunate. I've done a number of different things in my life started is professional ice skater. So that leads you to understand a lot of things about yourself. But when I moved across set of wyking corporate world, I found a great job. I wouldn't that great job. And it was during a time when off to that I was made redundant. It was never actually thought of job outside of that job. Is that make sense on made the conscious decision to to stop being official skater? I had gone to his job loved it in an I the people would with my friends and so win, Elaine. Did I was really questioning what will I do? And there are many things go and do, but they would many things I wanted to do. And I thought that was really interesting. So I thought it to say what would happen if I could go to work everyday. And it never felt like would because I've been really lucky to have those two situations where didn't ever feel like what you know? What a great time on traveling the woman he killed into skied. I'm doing actional name. You know, you decide you're gonna get a real job embedded come. And then I was being paid to travel and look after maple and Mike this happened in create amazing experiences way. Things could never have been imagined that I would say, it would say, wow, you know, I just think fireworks on a bait. You know, my car's been pot in front of signoff for half picks up there that was my job was to make things happen that you any sort of thought would happen in the movies and thought I really thought about what was is things. And I thought no underneath those things what really became Caen was. I was very good finding out. What would excite paper will have people do something? And so I started to study in that area went on to buy in that area. And it's interesting because I've recently connected with a number of people who I told as tooted to skate, and they talked about how I believed in them and always told about how they could find the based in it. Wasn't about competing with someone else. But finding out what you do in doing it the best of your ability. And so I with yourself. Yes. So, you know, competing with yourself is a really important game to play, you know, when you start comparing you know, if I compare myself to you we're on two different pods and are pods cross the night might travel together for a little while. And then they might separate for a little while but annoy you and you're not may in. So we have unique talents. It would matter. How much you taught me to do what you were told you to do what I do. Unique towns would would tight us through to do that differently. So people are so frightened about sharing who arm what they do without recognizing that in actual bet. They special gained vigilant and in special collectively end. So we need to be really confident to take that into. How would that work for everywhere? And they're sitting the spice tight fade back and decide gee, I need to adjust this. But I will not be the perfect person for every person. Some people will him. I message inside. I think that's rubbish. Now, I can invest a hold of time in that. But maybe not the time for them to hit that Missy Joe may be my message just a line to where they're traveling. So other twelve million people say the message that I've shared last week was valuable to them. So after concentrate on that almost thirteen million now, actually, yeah. Yes. And that it's funny because you know, reviewing that video actually kind of time ties into this dream lifestyle that you describe, and you know, that's what so many of us want right is to be able to just go out there and see the world and travel, and then somehow also have retrieved job and be able to do it on the beach while relaxing, you know, have all of those things together. At once recently. I think fairly recently there's been this huge uprising of just online entre preneurs trying to get in and into a very kind of over cluttered market marketplace and get their voice heard, but a lot of them. They're just kind of keep posting on social media. They keep trying to engage an audience and really resonated with me that whole concept of thinking that you're busy, but you're actually not now if somebody's thinking about maybe becoming a kosher a trainer doing something like that pursuing a passion job. That's maybe a little bit more. Digital? How do you think? They can stay productive without having this false sense of productivity. Just because they're posting Instagram's stories twenty four hours a day. But you know, what good is. I think you've really got to know what the outcome is the looking, you know, when I talked to people some people will have been busy all day and other people's I've been busy Dina change. Nothing. I always think it's that person is much clearer on what they were hoping to get done in the day. I was talking once to psychologist, and I have been seventy shave nothing, and we would talking professionally about the Diane what we'd been doing. And this business to me will maybe shape what you said at which shape. But I assure you change something. And it was a really good moment of may stopping in going. Actually that is a great remind everyday I achieve something in some days have to be about Jamie, nothing other than me having coffee supporting somebody or and in the days when I set out to achieve something. You know, been is set does tosses goals, and those are very clear very specific. It's not ongoing to post on my vice will cage, but it's what am I posting on today with being tainted all raging as people talking to those people doing this. What is my outcome for doing that? It's not just an activity, and then measure did that activity that I did rate that

"Spot. I'll be looking at our the sabers get a chance to shake off some rust, by the way biggest comes back on the road against Carolina on Friday. So let's touch on that row quickly Vegas and Calgary. Both come off the Brig both start on the east coast Saturday Edmonds comes off the break to play Philadelphia who will be playing throughout the week and plan after noon game. What's worse? Do you think Brian playing out on the west coast as an east coast team after the break or playing on the east coast as a west coast team off the break? I honestly would bet awful break. I don't think it matters. I think the break would mitigate any of those concerns. I would say this. You know, Vegas is firmly entrenched in third place at the moment. Calgary's going to be tough to catch. So they're kinda looking right now at second third that first round match up playing the second place team in the Pacific. They would need help from Calgary to come back to the pack, but they is playing anywhere near as good as they played last year. They don't tilt the ice on teams the way they used to. I think you're good team. They find ways to win. And they got a really good goaltender as you know, that's part of it. But they come back and they're their head knees. And they play Carolina Florida in Tampa. And they'll tip obviously, very tough. But the Carolina and Florida thing would have scared you heads into the break. A specifically Carolina was a team that was making a really good push. So what then like a brutal trip for Vegas has the potential to be pretty tough. I would say this though Carolina would strike me to be. One of those teams that the west thing they wanted was the break because they were making a sincere push they'd gotten themselves very much back into the Scott Shen. And you know, sometimes that break can just take the air out of the balloon. You know, Carolina was six three and one in their last ten and all of a sudden like you said they're backing shouting distance and discussion may try to make push to make the playoffs. So I think the brakes could hurt a team like Carolina feeling their oats. And maybe now they struggle off the break. And then Columbus is another one to watch. I've been I've been waiting for this. You know, give credit hang in there six and four in their last ten but about a month ago in and they went all the way the first place, then we'll maybe dead wrong about that. But I really think Columbus is a team that has the potential to plummet, and this Pinera thing I thought was going to be a distraction now it's now it's really bad there. And it said won't talk to you anymore. We'll talk after. The after the playoffs. Oh, thanks for nothing. You know? I mean, you know, Columbus. He's back into the corner. And they the leaves just got or gave up a first round tip. Prospect for Jake Muslim. But one is Panara gonna be worth on the open market. I think Columbus has to move this stuff. And then you've got the Boston you things still hanging over there. I think there are plenty of distractions between now and the trade deadline on February twenty fifth. I would watch Columbus closely to see how that team reacts. Columbus is in a really weird spot because you don't wanna lose Panara NBA abroad ski for nothing. But this is also a team that has never won a playoff series. And it is a very rabid fan base. I love going to games down at nationwide. It's outstanding. I've had the chance to playoff game..

"Today? Against the advice of officials. The speaker took the unprecedented step of letting government business motion be amended by the Tory. Brexit critic Dominic grieve. That resulted into Reza may losing a vote and being forced to speed up her plan B Brexit timetable. Do you think he overstepped the Mark? I think he did break with precedent. And I think it's fair to say that kind of change comes procedure without the being prior to Scott Shen is quite unusual. He did it against the vices clocks. She was forced to admit. He essence disabled government of that moment in that. He was deciding what should be the business of the house in the business of the house should be chosen by MP's and not necessarily by government to always been the privilege of the elected government to decide the business of parliament. And he was overturning that and that's a huge change to make. We've all noticed in recent months a sticker in your car making derogatory comments about Brexit. This is a serious point about partiality. With the skit. Anger about this Bolic's to Brexit sticker. John Burke has denied sticker on subject to Brexit happens to be fixed to or in the windscreen of my wife's car. Yes. And I'm sure the on Rable gentlemen, wouldn't suggest for one moment. A wife is somehow the property or chattel. He is to be remain a-. And we know that while the country voted to leave the e u parliament has a majority of MP's he thought that was the wrong decision is critics have a point. Does this power pressure on him? So it really puts kind of onus on him to sort of make sure these not seen to be an unfair referee over this issue. And there's a lot of anger about what he's done. But I think there's also case that defense give us the case for the defense. Well, in essence, if parliament doesn't come to a chance to take a vote on this issue if innocence it just carries on with new decision. The UK will be leaving the EU on no deal basis or March thirtieth and he feels that parliament needs to make a conscious decision about whether it wishes to do that or not. And if he prevents parliament for making that decision he is in effect in tossing route which takes Britain out of the EU without a deal. So he thinks he's in very unique circumstances where not intervene would be an effect to make a decision in favour of no deal. Say look the role of the speaker and the role of parliament has been incredibly important. It's the reason that reason I had to give MP's a meaningful vote in the first place that she lost. It's the reason that she's had to return to parliament with her plan, b it's the reason the MP's today are going to be able to amend that motion in such a way that could really change. The course that we take over Brexit the amendment that a lot of people are focusing on is the one being laid by labor MP evacuee, tell me about that. Well, that is the most important amendment in my view because it actually introduces legislation what it would raise emotion that allows a Bill to be debated at great speed that in essence gives the prime minister until February twenty six to get agreement on her withdrew. Arrangements. And if he hasn't then she has to go to the European Union an aspirin extension of the article fifty which is the moment of which we leave European Union. So that's a requirement by law for her to go to the European Union and ask for Brexit to be too laid which effectively means that MP's could today take a no deal Brexit off the table. They could do they could do this to be a lot of controversy about that. Both about the procedure about the wisdom of action. And also, whether it disables Theresa May because she no longer has the threat of new deal when she's negotiating with the European Union. It could be controversial. But even members of Theresa May's cabinet a thought be considering supporting a move to take no deal off the table that could mean we'll see resignations and the other amendments to as we record some Brexit as pushing for the prime minister to remove the so-called Irish backstop, and a lot of this will depend on John Burke, because he's the man who's gonna decide which amendments can be debated. He got a hell of a lot of abuse after he allowed that Dominic grieve amendment to go ahead. Do you think you'll be rattled by that? Do you think there's a chance that he won't pick those significant amendments today I thought he was Russia as you put it when he came under such criticism from conservative MP's about the way he'd been making decisions. So I think he will try to be as accommodating as possible today and allow quite a lot of different amendments onto the order paper, the previous occasion, he was trying to make it. A clear decision about whether support Theresa May's deal. Not we're now more in the territory of deciding what are the alternatives to raise amaze deal and for that to happen. Yes. To let range amendments loose. He does not have to give any explanation whatsoever. As to why he selected one amendment or another. He should bear in mind. What level support an amendment has on the order paper? How many influential important numerous MP's back to pick your amendment, and he has to think about whether it's in order to with the motion, but apart from that it's very much his decision. It can be quite arbitrary and he has to give no explanation. But it's absolutely critical today to see whether there is big support for extending the negotiating process, or whether there's dead, the focus is on going back to the European Union now and demanding change in issues such as the backstop best kind of where the focus will be huge pressure on John Burke today, if he designed to take members that. Could effectively stole Brexit. He's going to really fury people within his own conservative party. Do you think that he feels really strongly about this issue, and so Hillel most drop a nuclear bomb if you like and try to stop Brexit as his final actor speaker? I think he's defenses quite legitimate, which he's trying to find where the majority opinion is in the house of Commons on how to deal with this year, which we've been deadlocked for so long. And I think he thinks it's legitimate to give expression if there is a majority expression to the view, the should be an extension others. Why that is wrong? I think his only allowing MP's vote. He's not telling them. What to do if impeach don't want to do what if at Cooper's recommending they can turn turn turn it down? And you have said, however, that some of the things he's done have been unprecedented. Do you think we're witnessing a shift in parliamentary history? Could we look back to this moment in January two thousand nineteen? As a key turning point in the relationship between parliament and government. Yes, I think it is because the trend in that direction, particularly when you have coalition governments governments with small majorities parliament becomes more important anyway. So there's that trend underway. That's been the case since twenty ten, but the second thing was seeing is this particular point of tension between these different mandates of the popular mandate of a referendum and the mandate of elected Haussa Collins, and they are real loggerheads at the moment. And just finally Patrick two weeks ago. You said Theresa May's Dale would probably get through in the end. What you can. Thank you for reminding me. I still think that's probably the case version of it. How happens is unclear and we are so close to the precipice the moment. It's it's possible just four out. But I still think the not that I think is necessary the right decision. But I think that's where the comments will end up. He'll take the council of the Queen and come together. And I predicted that they would extend article fifty is or any way in which Brussels would allow that they will be reluctant to extend it just for three months for no particular purpose. If it was a longer period like the extension was for nine months. They might be more willing the danger with that then banging into the European parliamentary elections, which you need new European parliament Meech, July and with regime peace be present porno, Patrick.

And it did never happen again. But he finished at the Scott Shen by saying to them. What have you got for? Tomorrow. And that's what really matters, isn't it? That's right. Tomorrow's another day and another story and other stories, and I agree with the who was just talking to it. These things happen. They don't have the mazing thing is they don't have very often. I wanna point something else out in Watergate. We had no cable we had no internet. We had. None of the things that go on now. So you have that many more people reporting in Watergate, there weren't that many on the story. So I think exponentially the odds on somebody getting something wrong at some point are all the greater but keep in mind. The the big picture David was right. It's the big picture is something happened here. We'll find out what it was. But a lot of other things happen too. Even if the story didn't exist, there's still a very very big story, and we all need patience, and we all need to remember the phrase if true Elizabeth drew David corn.
