Drug Addiction In America
"Woken to Mentally Yours Metro could ikaes weekly podcast about all things mental health. Today we're talking to Dave. Marlon, he was the CEO of crossroads of Southern Nevada, which was the largest addiction and Rehab Center in the area, the psychotherapist drug and alcohol counselor, and he basically knows everything about addiction and mental health issues in the US and beyond. Making me talking tim today about how the pandemic has been affected addiction issues to get help if you're struggling and how to recognize if you might have a problem with drugs or alcohol. Bruce Dave. Thanks so much for joining us on mental yours and welcome from across the pond. My first question was basically because obviously as I mentioned, we're in London. You're in the US, it such different situation in terms of addiction, mental health, and obviously the pandemic to get started. Could you give kind of a brief overview of the reality of addiction in the US? How serious the problem is that how widespread is a? The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation calls addiction the number one health problem in the US. If we look at the the number of prescription opiates that are consumed in the entire world The United States consumes more than eighty percent of them. We. have. You know we've always had an alcohol problem for a percentage of our population. we we developed enough and phetamine mean and a cocaine problem over the last. Twenty years, and in the last five, six years Oh actually even a little longer. An opiate problem has has become. Our most serious addiction challenge. Kind of the most common addiction issue that you see people coming into your center with. It it's interesting. I've run Iran the largest treatment center in Las. Vegas of. Gene. Years. And now as a private center and they're absolutely opiates or over my last three, four years, they're opiates was the number one drug of choice that clients had presented to solutions recovery without the opiate use disorder their primary. Primary substance. Now I work at an indigent facility in in downtown. Las Vegas where. More than half of our clients are homeless. And what's interesting is with this demographic, there's a much higher methamphetamine use. Would say my number one. Substance of for clients is nothin vitamin with opiates and alcohol running for a close second place. That's really interesting I. Think What was interesting that you said kind of opiates have been coming up over the lost six years because for me, it's felt like the coverage has been really recent like only in the last couple of years, we taught it to the opioid crisis this being a sudden kind of unexpected issue but you're saying it's been building for a long time. It has. Interestingly, fourteen years ago I was running the largest health insurance company in the state. And I remember in my last. My last year or two I remember looking at pharmacy reports and we were all scratching our heads saying what is this Oxycontin and why did it not show up two years ago and now I remember when across the ten million dollar mark at the Insurance Company for monthly use so it really begins began spiking. Thirteen fourteen years ago. It became. Newsworthy in fashionable. Six seven years ago, and now we're a were still squarely in an opiate epidemic.

How, from how do you coach or head of players deal with known that the other guy knows all their secrets are patrons may be a better word yet it's good. Yeah. Lots of players play with with certain patterns in they do specific things at certain times. So it's it's know we speak regularly before the matches. Go through what the opponents, what we might expect them to do what they did against them last time if they did it against the lost time and it was successful low probably good again, if if they didn't work than the opponent will change it. So we've got to be prepared for things to change and it might change through the course match nobody plays exactly the same way all the time
Judge dreadthe fight for Ruth Bader Ginsburgs seat
"On Friday US Supreme Court. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died of cancer at the age of eighty seven. A candlelit vigil was held the following day outside the Supreme Court. Justice. GINSBURG was only the second woman appointed to the Supreme Court after being nominated by Bill Clinton in one thousand, nine hundred. I. In. Solemnly swear he was a champion of women's rights, and later in life she achieved restore status especially among young women. Now her death has set the stage for a divisive battle to replace her on the court. She was born in Brooklyn to an immigrant Father Dad was from Odessa in in Russia and to a first generation mother she was Jewish John. Fascination is the economist Washington correspondent and she was a trailblazer throughout her life. She was one of only nine women among five hundred men at Harvard law school, and when she arrived. Erwin griswold, who was then the Dean asked women in the class to stand up and justify taking a spot that could have gone to a man. She said the reason she took the spot is it was important that she understood her husband's work that would've made her husband Marty last Mardi was tax attorney well known in his own right he predeceased her but they had a famously loving and productive and equal partnership. She had a relentless work ethic in. Twenty five years in the Supreme Court she never missed today she's arrived four bouts of cancer before this fifth one killed her it was only after she got sick that she called by phone to oral arguments. I. Think People often have this idea that Supreme Court justices are sort of Stentorian wizards ready to shout down lawyer who they disagree with justice. GINSBURG was not like that she spoke very slowly very deliberately, which mirrors I think how she wrote and how she argued and how she thought she was meticulous. She was precise she she was not a showy justice. She came onto the court actually considered a moderate. There are a lot of people on the left who were upset when she was appointed because she was considered sort of two centrist. But as the court steadily moved rightward during her tenure, she has found herself the de facto leader of the courts liberal wing. Junk she spent a long time on the court. What did she achieve? Well, she was on the Supreme Court for Twenty seven years, and before that was on the DC Circuit Court of Appeals, which is widely considered the second most important court in America for for thirteen. So she was a judge for forty years I was age sixty when I was nominated in some people thought I was. Too Old for the job. Now I'm into my twenty-seventh starting my twenty-seventh year on the courts on one of the longest tenured. Justices. So if you worried about my age. It was unnecessary. Before that, she argued six cases before the Supreme Court and she was involved with thirty more as the first director of the US women's rights project. The first of those report court cases was in Reid versus Reid for which she wrote a brief arguing against the law in Ohio that preferred men to women in naming executive estates. She won that case in her first oral argument before the Supreme Court. She argued against the military policy that denied many husbands, officers, the same housing and medical benefits that automatically provided officers. Wise. The thinking was that women are somehow inherently more dependent on their husbands and husbands on their wise. Now, in that case, remember she effectively represented the husband she represented family but she represented the shoes argue in favor of the husband's benefits and she austin said that she was not arguing for women's rights she was arguing for the constitutional equality of men and women. Her death is come at a critical time in American politics. It's just six weeks away from the election. So what impact does that have? Well I think it's a little too early to say that definitively. It looks as though both sides are gearing up for battle, but they seem to be quietly circling each other in two thousand sixteen. The Supreme Court is central to Donald Trump's success I think because. There is an open seat in two thousand, Sixteen Justice Antonin Scalia died, and Mitch McConnell who is then the Senate minority leader rather than hold a hearing on Barack Obama's chosen replacement for Justice Scalia whose Merrick Garland he came up with a rationale disguises the principle which was that the causing election was coming up the speech beheld open. So the voters could decide now that had never been done before it was clearly a power play. It was a live sort of issue for Republicans impelled I think a lot of them who otherwise would have held donald trump at arm's length to decide that just had to vote for him this time I. Think Donald Trump is hoping for a similar effect this time, but he also wants to get the filled as quickly as possible. For Democrats donations had started pouring in, they have been pouring all weekend. Democrats seem riled up by this. I think in their view if Donald Trump managed to get a successor onto the court, this'll be the seconds effectively stolen seat right? The I was Neil Gorsuch. who was given the seat that was held open by Mitch McConnell, and the second would be whoever donald trump nominees to replace justice GINSBURG who gets the seat because Mitch McConnell did not follow the principle he set up in two thousand sixteen. John Do you think Senate. Republicans have the numbers to they have the votes to get in trump's nominee through before the election. Well this is the question on everyone's mind. Right so far Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski Republican senators from from Maine Alaska, had said that they will not vote for replacement before November third they have said that the president who wins on November third you choose the replacement now that only gets Democrats to forty nine and they need fifty one because in the case of a tie Mike. Pence cast the tiebreaking vote Lindsey Graham had previously said he would abide by Mitch McConnell's rule from twenty sixteen. He has now gone back on that apparently because he's angry Democrats didn't roll over for Brad Cavanaugh Chuck. Grassley, who's a senator from Iowa has also previously spoken in favor of McConnell's precedent. I, have a very hard time imagining that when push comes to shove, he'll stand by his. Word and so there really is nothing Democrats can do unless they can persuade two other Republicans to come join them, and if they can't persuade those Republicans and tip the balance what happens. Then what are the consequences for the years ahead on American politics? It's clear that what McConnell did in two thousand sixteen was a tremendous violation of norms I think it's not a good principal to. Uphold I think arguing that this is now how Supreme Court seats should be awarded that in an election year, you effectively have to hold the seat open until the end of the election is a bad precedent but I think there's a difference between saying Republicans should be consistent for the sake of consistency and Republicans should follow this principle because that's how court seat should be given out now. From the Democratic Base, there's been a tremendous push to threaten Republicans with repercussions if. Retake. The Senate and the president in that includes making Puerto Rico in Washington DC states, which would effectively at least in the near in medium-term Give Democrats four senators people have also been talking about expanding the court. So the reason they are Nice Ring Court justices is not constitutional legal. It's just a statute. So if they were minded and had a majority had a president who would sign it into law, they put eleven or thirteen justices on the supreme court. The problem with that for Democrats I think is that it sort of shifts the terms. Of the debate that they are now winning I think the way Joe, Biden has pitched. This campaign is on the one hand. You have the sort of chaotic destructive Donald Trump on the other. You have Joe Biden Palm known figure who will get us back to normal. If, he comes out and endorses expanding the court or State of DC in Puerto Rico, which to be clear he has not done. He is actually a opposed expanded from court but if he comes out if Democrats threaten this, then the debate becomes a lot murkier. Then it becomes the radical change that Joe Biden wants to do right take fifty, two states and putting thirteen on Supreme Court against Donald Trump will keep things as are I think that debate does not play out very well for Democrats. John Thank you very much time.
ON The Frontlines Of The Youth Climate Strikes
"This week we go to the frontlines of the youth climate strike movement. There are hundreds of protests going on all around the world today as young people, school children from Australia to Iceland come together to protest about what they're calling the crisis of their lifetime climate change. Of course, what they see is politicians inability or unwillingness to do anything about it to the global protests that is underway right now, students and workers all around the world of flooding the streets demanding action on climate change, Maggie, Rulli that a demonstration in London with the latest Michael with thousands of protesters, right underneath parliament, and what's so striking besides just the sheer size of protesters here are. The age of people who are demonstrating almost all of them are students that's hiding just nine years old. We spoke to a group of seventeen year olds who said they're here today to fight for their future. Now, the goal of this strike, really all these strikes around the world it's a send a clear message to world leaders ahead of the UN climate summit happening this week in New York climate change protests happening right now in lower Manhattan this is video from chopper four showing the massive crowd marching from Foley Square the courthouses down to the battery among the people flooding city streets were students who were allowed to skip class today to join this 'cause. I told with Jerome Foster. who had seven sounded watching documentaries about our planet go activated and started climate blogging creating virtual reality platforms social justice. He's now eighteen has been climate striking for eighty one weeks in front of the white. House. He founded one million of us to get youth to vote this November Jerome is one of eleven million people from over one hundred and forty countries the climate striking and skipping school to tell us we need to act now. I stopped by asking Jerome where he is now. I'm visiting New York City I just moved here for college, but I was born and raised in Washington DC. I'm going to college at Peace University and Columbia Columbia basically majoring in computer science specializing artificial intelligence. are distance-learning others are like mixed waken coming class in? Their dorm near the off his classes, some of them, most of my classes right now are digital. Have One. Now. So tell me about growing up in DC and kind of what led you to get into the place where you founded the organization one, million US. So where I grew up in Washington DC right around like places. And forests and those like a huge place for me to explore my neighborhood. So I kinda grew up getting in touch with nature and after years of like understanding what nature wasn't had really appreciate it. I started watching documented by astrophysics and learning about like what are world's about like what a black holes water were imposed all these cool late science things, and after that, I started watching documentaries about my own planet and how our planet fit into. Astrophysics. into the rest of the world that every time they talk about something else beautiful it's like but humans are burning it down and but. Are Continuing to extract coal and an oil and natural gas to power earth than is going to continue to see species go extinct and like that was kind of a wake up call for me understanding that our earth is actually has like trouble going on but still being like six or seven years old was like. This isn't that big of an issue. Adults are GonNa fix this adults definitely going to step up and take action but Learning later on like it didn't happen. That's that's not the story as the navy faded it. kind of grew into another understanding that like if the corruption is the unwillingness to have moral clarity won't stand up to corporations and that they don't have the political leadership to acting say, we need to hold you accountable and like as older I was like, how can I get into? Really. Getting their attention actually taking action when my friends kind of toby lunch table they're like, Hey, you should start into pitch. Okay. Cool. So like for sixth seventh and Eighth Grade I posted every single day. and. Like facts and got to like and I was like I got to convince that climate change because back then like global warming is a hoax and everyone believed that that was the big struggle and like today it's not that same conversation. It's about how do we take action but back then it was all about is it real? And I did that for six eighth grade in ninth grade I trying to transition. To. More technology and building I reality environments. So I mean when you say like it's ten years, it has been view like if he started when you seven that. Yeah. I started virtuality company called Vr, and basically it was the idea that like we can use virtuality. Gaming Place, but actually civic engagement accident building empathy only a few people will be able to see it because it's so expensive to create and it's so hard. Tribute it out. So I, kind of transition into. into journalism and it was because I started watching my documentaries again. It was Leonardo DiCaprio's before the flood and like in the last five minutes he said we need commentators then covered as if it's a lot we need young people we need people to come out here and start talking about time change in a new way. So I was like I can do that. There's like I'm I'm I'm with around blood so like two hours. Later I I email my English teacher in accurate a blog called the climb reporter and one hundred, sixty, five articles like eight months and determine about climate change from east perspective sounds like we need young people in this movement because our future is directly at stake people will say their children's children but we're the Stojan. At this point we waited fifty years to take action. Our Future. Now,

What's Your Story
"This is the Jaakko unraveling podcast episode nine with Daryl Cooper and me Jaakko, willink. So. Last time we were talking about. The stories that we tell ourselves and then how We get stories in groups in those start to expand in those start to unify people together. And it seems that we have an instinct towards. Some level of those. Stories unifying us to a point to where we start to drift into just straight tribalism. And then we actually use those stories and change those stories. As a tool to strengthen our tribes even more. And I know you had some some interesting stories, slash myths. That that that kind of represent that very well throughout history we've seen this it's it's it's tapping into. A basic. A basic way that our mind structures reality for us right I mean if you think about. How you teach. The youngest children something if you need to teach them something, you need him to tie their shoes right? How you GonNa do that through imitation you're gonNA show them do what I do. Right that's the same thing that like chimpanzees how they teach their children things. As they get a little bit older was the next way that you're going to teach them stuff probably maybe by like five six, seven years old you're GonNa Start Teaching them basic things about what a good person behaves like whatever you're GonNa do it through stories right? That's like the next level up. It's like later on down the road, you can start talking about kind of concepts right? You can start teaching them. Teaching somebody things in terms of you know instead of telling you a story about prince charming and this is how a man should treat a woman. You're going to learn through this story and internalized that maybe later on, we can say this is the essence of love and how love operates and Blah Blah Blah but stories narrative is how we how we structure reality and understand things and very, very profound way. Yeah. I've written a bunch of books. The two of the leadership books that I've written actually all three of the leadership books that have written are. Heavily based on stories stories from combat and then stories from the civilian sector. And and obviously people the feedback I get all the time and we have the principles written in there in extreme ownership in their leadership. We write the principal clearly in there. Hey, this is called covered move. This is what it means. But people never say Oh, thanks for spelling out the principal for me. They say Oh love the way you guys told the story in that I could see it. So yeah, this is not just something that we do for kids I mean the. With US sticks with US forever, and it's such a great way to to get your point across much more powerful way and for certain things, it's the only way. Right I. Mean. There's just like you're not gonNA tell somebody breakdown into philosophical concepts had a tie your shoes. You just got shown him and tell him i. do there are certain things that? You just have to use a story. That's the only thing that's really going to serve that purpose and elucidating the principles we are really doing there is saying, okay, you know all those stories this one, I just told you in the book. Yeah. But all those other ones you've always heard and there's that there's that thing that the leaders are doing something. This is what it is right and so you're drawing out that communality and those stories by stating the principles. interesting when you said. These you actually brought it up perfectly in my mind. When you said these stories, we tell ourselves can be unifying, and then that same story can become like a divisive type of tribalism right and it reminded me of this this book. call. It's book about the. Rwandan. Genocide by Philip Gourevich who also wrote a really powerful book on Abu Ghraib actually it's very, very You, know? Eric. Weinstein. Actually knows that guy believe he's married to a friend of their family and if at all possible I think it'd be a great guy for you to talk to certainly possible. Just incredibly, morally sensitive writer just a very, very interesting guy anyway, and so in this book about the Rwandan genocide, what's it called we wish to inform you that tomorrow will be killed with our families. I have that one I haven't done it yet. Man I I did Michetti season was kind of. All right. There's one there's one more maybe it's that one life life laid bare? Probably switching is by the same guy who wrote. Interviews the victims brutal. It's as brutal as you think. Yeah. and. So in this book, we wish to inform you that tomorrow we will be killed with our families Goes through when it's just harrowing book as You can imagine at the end of it. He relates this story. That took place. As the genocide was winding down I believe in this girl's school in Rwanda. Some of the entire homeway militias were still running around the rebels had come back and we're pushing back against him, but this was still ongoing. And a bunch of them came into this girl school. And we're trying to figure out who are the Tuzi. So we can kill them all. And they were telling him you know who to girls on one side tootsie girls to the others and on the other side and either girl he's a grade school girls. They refuse to separate themselves out from the Tuzi girls in so that they could know who they were, and one of the girls said that there are no who Tuzi here. There are only Rwandans here. And a lot of them died they all the killed, all of them rather than kill none of them and eventually somebody came broke it up, but a lot of them died. And if you think of that like Whoa okay That's something that in a lot of context were told is a dirty word that's nationalism right I mean that's what it is. Nationalism in the United States is what got Irish people and Italian people in German people to say Oh Germany's attacking people in Europe. We gotta get together and go over there and stop them right. Very unifying thing. That same force is what got Germany to start the fight in the first place. And so identity is a very interesting thing because you go up above the blood level. And everything after the blood level is a story. That's what it is right and you need a story to keep it together. You look at a place like United States we need a story more than anybody.
Blending Organizing Styles
"Elissa how are you? I'm so excited to be talking to you. I'm so excited to have this chance for us to chat. So tell me a little bit about yourself. Or unique life situation. What makes us unique? I mean, I. Don't have. It's not super exciting. I have four kids. My oldest is super exciting. It might make it a little more chaotic. Yeah it's fun. It's fun. So I have.

And I kind of have I feel like I have two sets of because my two oldest are two years apart in ahead to surprised babies after. So that's so fun. Sometimes. Keeping young and making me feel old at the same time. I have quite a few friends that have similar stories to that, and I, always think about the. Like what is it like when you're taking a baby to like I don't know if they're this far apart but like to junior high football game or but yeah, you know that it's just a whole different world it is and when I got pregnant with my third was I found out like the same month that I had got my second child into all day kindergarten and thought my life was like opening up for me and then I found out I was pregnant.

How Do I Do the Baby Steps on Disability?
"Eddie's weathers in Salt Lake City Hi Eddie how can we help? Rachel. Talked to you today you to what's up. Well I I'm wondering how my baby step journey actually is going to look I. most of my. Is actually from disability income. and I've somehow managed to make myself to pass baby sent three gut and. Now, I'm looking at. Trying to save for. The future and possibly by home Do you make a smaller earned income so I'm able to contribute to A. Roth IRA. But. I'm just Kinda wondering that doesn't quite get me to the fifteen percents. And I'm wondering how to do that and balance three be at the same time. On this kind of income. So what is your income? Make about. Forty eight, thousand from disability. What is the nature of your disability? blind blind. Okay. All. Right and who pays. Its from a workplace insurance policy thought I was actually injured on the job my goodness I'm sorry. Are you have you lost one hundred percent of your side or just most of it? Good Chunk of it. I still have. Some people would call functional being able to see. Some objects just no find detail at all just generally you can walk around the room but but but the idea of opening up a website and looking at it's off the off the off the out of the options. What are you doing for your extra earn money? I'm actually still teaching. On teaching. The subject that was trained in. So I was teaching chemistry. Able to do that still how That's so cool. How do you have been doing it for thirty? Years doing it all from memory. YEA, pretty? Much. Okay. All right and you got the lesson plans in Braille or whatever have you learned Braille I have some adaptable software Screen thing okay. Well, good and then after thirty five years off thing or two about it. Yeah. Yeah. That's promising. That's promising. Okay. Cool. Well, the reason I ask all these questions is on your right you can you you know you're doing good and how long ago was the accident? Seven years ago. Okay. How old are you? forty, seven you're over your and overcoming man you've been getting it I'm proud of you and your your impression. Thank you. So I, mean because that's a life altering to say the least and some people just get paralyzed and you just kept rolling man good for you. All right. So how much do you make teaching Eddie? Kind of. It's been as little as about. Nine thousand. And it's been as much as about thirteen. It's all depend on. You know how much I get person master? Okay. Yeah while say because between that and your disabilities or are you are you married kids family situation? Not just me. Okay. Well, I was GONNA say that's a relatively. Average income. That's the positive part is how to do the steps in disability is that people are doing it with this amount of income they're just working their way through it. So if you wanted to pause baby step forward to do baby step three B and go ahead and save up that down payment, you could for a short period of time just kind of accelerate that and actually get that quick win faster than if you were putting your money into that Roth Ira so you could do that as an option. Yeah. I agree I think you're getting there. Let me tell you what I'm hearing I'm hearing you got. Big Future ahead of you. And you've been through hell and so it might be harder for you to grasp that future but. I think I think you could do it I think you could I think you could do tutoring. Thank you. Could you might double your income If you push around and think about this a little bit you don't have to but you're just a survivor man I mean you've gotten after it. I'm so proud of you. So I would be continuing to think about ways you could do the teaching because you know your stuff like you said and anything you can do to get your income up, of course, accelerates all of these issues.
Cyber Power Index highlighting Australian Governments gaps in cyber capability
"Like any INFO Technology Sector security has plenty of indexes flooding around or get. Indexes collided by vendors and people trying to sell things to us I thought this for Senate index was. Useful because it doesn't come from I accompany product. It say independent academic attempt to benchmark Com, sub security capability and intent from nation sites It appealed to make per couple of reasons may not have had A to do with Bill Center in the past spend a little bit of Thanh. Talking to their academics in previous roles and particularly locked the way that This report sets metrics that up designed to objectively major subsidy maturity in nations So it says what are the kind of things that we could judge the intent of a nation in the obscurity spice and one of the kind of things that we could use to objectively major capability. And it tells an interesting story in Australia Australia's categorized in the higher intent, low capability quadrant and the reason for that is because when the the objective metrics this reporter applied to the statements made by by government ministers by government departments, entities about what our intent is. Assab security spice. Where about the most ambitious nation in the world for ask security attend? But. Then when you look at what our actual capabilities against that intent on again measured in a series of objective metrics. We fold anti sixteenth in that space. So, FA May that told a pretty familiar story because this over promising on delivering stories. One that I think is familiar to a lot of. People in the Strand security sector. In the context of these trying government's actions since the twenty six, Day sub, security strategy. A lot of announcement to be my bet when you follow up way those announcements. In the years after that have been made you say less deleted then was announced to the media. Will what's on the industry? Kodak in the two thousand, sixteen strategy that was undefended at least out of the Prime Minister's office. This one is looking out at a ten years. The two thousand twenty strategy is looking at at the ten year timeframe. And proposing one point six, billion, dollar funding. Backdrop, but a lot of that is going into law enforcement and as you say might be into that capability. What's your take on the strategy itself? Overall as you say, it's it's another announcement is on the strategy whether it's not as another thing but certainly yet your thoughts on the strategy itself and where maybe else we could have been in twenty twenty from the twenty six danes strategies. Have you have you seen that the two thousand twenty strategy's building on the twenty, sixteen or? Taking a completely new direction. While the that, you can certainly say the why the two thousand twenty strategy is reaction to experience the twenty six strategy That the twenty sixteen subsequently strategy had a very large number of of objectives and Nisha announced under it. I think the government found the experience of trying to implement those very large number projected initiatives again, adopted under outcome Tambo's prime ministership around the breathing bruising exercise because the twenty twenty strategy dramatically rationalize is temptation I'm say that the broad spread of of initiatives and objectives under the strategy a kind of a toddler. Your decide that the Gospel confessed about ninety percent of the funding. Associated with these twenty twenty strategy he's allocated to security agencies So it goes into building. Capabilities with particularly the is day but also other security agencies on. Enforcement agencies like the the I pay, and that's well and good We have I think outstanding internationally recognized capabilities within is. and this is the conduct that you have to keep investing in order to. Maintain those capabilities in my time that that international ranking. Suppose big Criticism that that libraries had is one that we've been exploring for at the loss twelve months and that's really When you look at security policy to strike the problem is the ability to project those capabilities out of the silos of how defense and security agencies. To the problems in Australia Com in terms of lifting a bench, mock the baseline up security security. Brazil and Sada resilience across the Australian government trying economy You know there's a lot of examples of that. Wall is day is absolutely world standard. Saab resiliency combined entities is as at the government's own description reminding at relatively low levels. you know the is days top full became mandatory in the. Seventies ago now. had a slew of a straight national ordered office inquiry since then. when you type them all up on like twenty nine percent of Kamal entities compliant with all the top four. Seven years after theoretically became mandatory say interesting. Is Connect between very high capability. Inside Is Day lower levels of saga resilience and more broadly throughout government not to sign story that we see in the corporate sector unites now at banks and Al. Telcos, absolately will class intends to their sub security posture. But you only have to sort of take one stiff through the down. In the I six navy top fifty. And you start seeing. Very, different levels of resilience.

Then all you gotta do is just have one worse moment and I'm sure you have more worst moments to choose from than just one. But I'M GONNA. Start off here. Okay. I'll go first, and then we'll just go go around between everybody I am sorry for being late to the beginning of this. It's fine. I thought maybe you just. You didn't have any good moments. Didn't have to pay and I was looking in the mirror. It's like. You can do this talkers. Pride, I see our. No, I, WanNa, say kicking it off as like.

Cheers, everybody, seven more years. Maybe wow seven years down. Do, they sign that ahead of time seven years. Hey, that's good. What's that called again? Two genders baby to gingers whiskey. That's good. That's a good way to celebrate seventy years on this show, seventy or success, seven years of of mopping the floor with the competition at seven years of having fun and having a whole bunch of drama in between so I'll start real quick and I wanted to start out with my. Favorite thing from the history of this show, we'll just fly around and everybody say whatever's on their mind number seven for me was at the very beginning of the show. I think we couldn't have been more than two or three months in. Moment number seven was when Chris Campfire busted into the studio. Gosh, that was a good one to tell us that we jumping up and down that we hit number one in the ratings. Just three months in I think maybe even less than that could've been quicker than that, but the the show had Ben seventh-place eight plays whatever it was, and then we started and very quickly. We're able to take the show to number one in the ratings and he like cut garage chance. So excited. I would just like a regular show and I. Remember in the middle of I was like yeah. I was in the control room at that point and I could feel like the. Something was like an unusual. Either here sealing jamming out on the guitar or Sean with vocal warm ups when I looked up, Mike Ken Myers jumping. He looks excited. What's happening callback? And then we did the impossible good God. Yeah, number one. That was a great one. What's number seven for us to bring another seven, and if you could turn my hang up? Go ahead. Number Seven And really they have no. Ranking was supposed to do a top seven Lisburn. Things I didn't mind either. Down and I have sub categories. But I will start with. The first thing that comes to mind because we talked to him recently I. Love Moses Dewitt He has been here since day one as dealt with the very last minute I mean by the hour and or minute calls to be like hey, can. Sponsors and this real quick. But on top of it the took us under wing as friends who went to hope town with him. Last he's a good person. And I appreciate the friendship that has come out of it. For him being part of the show and the success of this ship, how about UCLA number seven I mean I guess if I have to rank them I could push this one down to the bottom because this is sort of A. Is Not going to sound like one of the best moments, but I think for me just fascinating. I was a big fan in highschool of Pablo Francisco. And I was like where we landed him for the interview I was like Oh. That's super cool, a big fan of him and he's a big fan of cocaine. Allegedly allegedly how that works and Then! As I grew up I. Still you know. He was coming to town and it's thinking. Oh, man, how cool would it be to tell highschool me that you're going to be on the radio? Interviewing that Guy Window world and Dan. We talked to him and his seven different. In one minute absolutely out of control and that's one best of that. I've never ever played. Number six for me was the battle with bill cosby that was so surreal that whole thing. Yeah, when Bill Cosby was starting to gain heat, and we kind of picked a fight with them and became a big news story radio station in Florida offers one thousand dollars for a protester. Comedy show and and Bill Cosby did an interview beforehand where they asked him about it, and he called us. They're just a bunch of Frat Bros over. There is opening monologue at the center. Oh, you did then, too, but they did. There was an interview with him before where he was like that that station that that show. It's just a bunch of Frat Bros.. So that has been the name of our group text ever since that moment. I thought that was pretty cool. It's your number. Six Supreme I would have to say Jasmine try devil and the entire debacle of that. The beginning of where we were, but think given a reddit post, or maybe the youtube video in which it was started with Chris Angel Session with it but then she comes out with the announcement that she has gotten the surgery done in which three boobs had been implanted. We get her on the air. Time passes you to get into fight via social media Moran. You put her phone number up her phone number up You guys fight back and forth you started receiving a lot of penis picture I got a lot of dawn photos because how you shaped it on social media is like this tried levels number. have she shaped like I got a new number. Tell all my kinky daddy's out there. Send me their depicts, and there was fast forward even more convinced to go to just okay if she could slap. Slap you three times. Video recently found still available already, but not say for radio, and then I saw her at a kink.

Continue to see that these people are all in their twenties or thirties or forties, and we'll get to your dispatches, commenting on all of this just a moment, but another big story of the week was about NASCAR driver. Driver bubba Wallace Sand. All of a sudden there was before a race a new story. Nascar said they were investigating. The Fed feds the FBI I think we're investigating central's of fifteen people out there to look into this. And it was all because somebody had left a noose in bubble. Wallace's garage whereas Nascar car was held, and then they did this investigation. They said Nope it had been there for. For a while and Blah Blah Blah. Blah Blah. We learned that this wasn't a targeted thing. Aimed at bubble, Wallace and people are still debating this one thing that Nascar did where I was like what the Hell Nascar released one photo of this news, and they went right next to the news in the garage and took a photo and made it look like this big thing, but if you look. Look at it from any other angle if it's not as large or didn't look as menacing as it did in this photo that they had used at Nascar leaked. Dow because now I've seen video and photo this thing from about every angle. You could imagine that's because I don't think it's an existence anymore. No, not now grabbed like an employee was like Oh i. do have a picture of it. That was in the background or take a picture of the race car just finished building I think. Nascar took like took a snapshot is. The investigation have way more photos than that. Why would have video I think they would have all kinds of stuff, but spiracy sure they did. That's that's another point, too. You know why this was there and what was behind? Regardless. We've got to the end of that story. Thinks. It's very clear to me that that wasn't targeted. At bubba Wallace though he has plenty of other issues being the only black nascar driver where things are targeted on him, people are terrible but the the owner of a speedway, a race track in. Whereas of North Carolina decided to weigh in on all of this good timing for him. Okay, he said, let me jump in on this, and he offered up a bubble rope on US book. Market Place. This has some twists and turns in it here. Here's what this person posted and this guy is a pretty terrible. The individual who owns this three one one speedway in Stokes county. He's too because no one's going there anymore. I don't know maybe if he's got his his crew. That doesn't care and they're all racist about this. I don't know but he.

"It's always nice throughout these cold winter weeks getting getting, you know, having a long day, and you get a nice nice Email from one of the pecker heads. Let's see I guess these emails would have started rolling around. Six or seven. Let's see. Someone wrote about Amini heat and greet. And we'll get to that a Royal rumble heat and greet. Don't know if that's going to happen. Hey, peter. I'm sorry. I hate to cut the line for male. But I can I ask the question for. Of course, I didn't know, Greg. I wasn't sure if you were excited or offended. Of our here. I'm gonna hit the job. Anyway, here you. Mail. Okay. Go ahead carry. Okay. So I've been paying attention to the whole Becky Lynch, Ronda Rousey thing and the chatter about them possibly being the is it the first female headliner for Russell mania that could be a possibility. What are you guys think about that? Is that a possibility? And would you be here for it? Well, first of all, which of you guys is playing with Legos as we speak. None of us come on with. What was that sound? I don't know. I don't know what you wanna use lying. Don't cover it up something out flipping pages. But I don't know how that was let me let me or the page again. No that you're that little jingling. I do hear that jingling jingling, Greg. Greg you wearing are you wearing some something iced out. No, no, not yet that. That this imposs- it's paper. It's paper. I think I think he's Istat if some of it's happening or you're playing with Legos like the seven year old. You know, what I do think it's a possibility particularly this year when I don't know where they go. Honestly, at this very moment is very early. You know, we're not even in January yet, it's not even twenty nineteen. But right now at this early juncture as we start to as we get to starting to think about the wrestlemainia card. I. I would lean towards it being likely that Ronda Rousey and her opponent, whether it be Charlotte or Becky main events wrestlemainia, it's a great year to do it. They did Evelyn this year. I we know that they wanna bring back evolution or women's pay per view next year. And frankly, I don't know what the big men's match is. So I think it's possible and likely G. Yeah. No, I agree. One hundred percent at its both possible and likely. Especially because let's face it. Becky Lynch is on fire right now. And Ronda Rousey is is Ronda Rousey, she's going to get a marquee match. At wrestlemainia. So if they put the two of those two together that would certainly justify them being in the main event because like you said Piazzi any men's match that deserves the spot. I don't see how they build to a man's matched. That would deserve to close the show the good good question there Chiron, and I think it's definitely possible.

"Listen to that in the car with the kids. I'm sorry about that. And the last thing I'll tell you about the case show, you guys if you're listening right now, and you listen to podcasts every week, and you really do want contact. You're not that into sports the case show, which there's there's an you can listen live on the PIN app or the podcast or if you Tony here. My segment it's called Aeon. There's an e n podcasts you just get my thirty segment thirty thirty minutes segment that I do every night where I do news sports stories that they react to you'd really like the show them. So if you just love this show you'd really enjoy it. But this is one of my favorite sounds ever. It's it's what a caller said this caller made this whole point. I don't even remember what it was about. And then Don responded in a way, where he just like proved a point instantly and the guy had no reply. And so this is now the sound I play whenever someone just get stumped. Because it's just so definitively the sound of someone who just got proven wrong every well. Well, hey, well, hey. You say, well, hey, it just means, you know, way. But you had said that blah, blah, blah. No, no I've tape on the tape. I said, blah, blah, blah. Hey, well, hey, all right. That's enough.

I don't think it's time yet for him to be done. Not by a long shot. So by Hooker by crook. Daniel, Bryan retains. I don't think it's time either. But I'm going to go with AJ styles. Wow. Shocking. Yeah. I mean, listen. Glenn Daniel, Bryan won the championship. He reminded me of that age old saying anything can happen in the WWE, which is really just like them saying expect the unexpected. And so. I'm going to remind myself of that as we head into this match that anything can happen. And even though we expect any O'Brien or the new Daniel Bryan to. Continue. Down this path. I'm going to expect the unexpected and go with AJ styles. While not what I would've expected..

Match ruby riot. Messed up because she's invoking. Nazi's late father, Jim the envelope high heart, and it's messed up. But ultimately, I think the reason the story makes sense to me, and that you know, that they're in a big the fact they have a rivalry based around smashing a pair of glasses. I think that has everything to do with this being an opportunity for ruby riots at get you know, to get hers. So I'm gonna ruby. Yeah. I don't wanna see it. I don't wanna see natty go through. A table with Jimmy Hart's. I know me neither. I really don't. I don't wanna see it. But I think that's exactly how it's going to go down especially because the riot squad is right there to like. Who does that he have to toback her up? Rhonda's preoccupied. I'll tell you. I'll tell you. What though I think Jimmy Evelyn her would be pretty pretty happy to be involved in the storyline. Oh, yeah. Like, that's what makes me think that it's going to happen. So even though I don't wanna see it as 'cause like, that's that's nat- ease pedigree. That's what she comes from. You know, like these professionals who? Try to get everything. And like, you know, what I mean, everything can be an angle and get the people worked up so. I don't know. Yeah. I'll go ruby to though, what's an excess energy Elias versus Bobby Lashley. A ladder match. I'm going to lie because I've said this many times if you like wins ally it's going to start getting some wins. I mean, I think we would both agree that the bigger trajectory here moving forward is alliance. Correct. Yeah. Yeah. So what's the point? I mean, Bobby Lashley now is a is a he'll cheater with Leo doesn't really matter. If he loses, you know, you're just trying to get him heat anyway. And I feel like allies that all these matches that he so rarely wins. And he has the chance to be so big like, I always say if he's not going to be Bobby Lashley, some you know, when's he gonna win? I like Elias here. Yeah. I'm gonna go Bobby Lashley. And you just said why because he has he has Leo rush with him and he factor. Yeah. And I do see we all rush getting blasted with the guitar not. Maybe not Bobby Lashley. But definitely Leo rush. Leo rush in his match the other day against allies literally without a shirt on Leo rush. Looks like a seven year old. This is true.

That was like what's the point of him coming back? If he can't beat Randy Orton in a in a story. That's not even that intense. Yeah. Although it's a chess match. So I mean, they're setting up for some type of intensity that that's certainly favors. The viper. Does it though I feel like the chairs the equalizer the chair is the equality, but who can you picture beating someone down with the chair more like swinging the chair Randy?

"It has not been a good few weeks. Do you? What do you think? I agree with that. That. That it hasn't been a good few weeks that it's been sort of an dip. But, but yeah, I don't know if that necessarily like I don't know that that's the same as saying that, you know, the ratings are bad. And that's why it's terrible. If that makes sense like I can see, you know, the product is bad. And then having your reasons why as being a valid criticism. But I don't know if ratings being bad is as important as the product being bad, if you know what I mean, I don't know if there's a one to one correlation with the. The two. Yeah. Me neither. But I that's my guess is just that the show hasn't been keeping people around. You know, you're not there haven't been. There hasn't been. Near the Rhonda stuff has been. The stuff or the stuff that Rhonda's doing on TV is in you know, like Rhonda's best stuff. Is it paper views? She's can't miss it pay per views, but the TV's, okay? The biggest most interesting thing happening WW my opinion is happening on smackdown. That's Daniel, Bryan. Seth Rollins dean Ambrose is really awesome. If you're a wrestling fan, but wasn't a Dipper senior said that when he was on the show a few weeks ago. I mean, ultimately. You know, or is it us? I forget who said it. But like their intercontinental guys really the really too great intercontinental guys. So, you know, while I really like I mean, I even excited for natty and ruby riot. I I'm I'm, you know, I love ruby riot. But are any of these things that keep you watching TV is Finn Baylor and drew McIntyre allies, and Bobby Lashley is that keeping people glued to their TV's? You know down the down the stretch of a football season. Which even though the Monday night games have been pretty bad. It's been a pretty entertaining football season in general use all part of the issue that that. That ratings are down across the board because of the NFL. Why I certainly don't think it helps if TV has not been good and on top of TV not being particularly good. It happens during the football season. One Monday night football is happening versus happening in March. Yeah, I think there's no way to not factor in Monday night football. And by the way, I said Daniel, Bryan. But also, the next most interesting things, Becky Lynch. She's also on smackdown. Right. Although I expect Becky Lynch to be on raw after wrestlemainia. You think so with 'cause after wrestlemainia right don't they really have to start gearing up towards? You know that that split that network split and moving some people over to smackdown when when is it happening ball October's? Yeah. I mean, it's still have a lot of time. Maybe you're right. I just see her. I just see whenever Becky eventually makes it to Monday of being lit. I guess it depends on whether they feel she's runner course. Completely on smackdown or not. And I guess it depends what Rhonda and Becky end up doing it wrestlemainia thirty gather. If they're separate. But yeah, I'm not shocked at the bad at the bad numbers right now. And I'm not concerned about it in a macro sense. But in the micro sense. Yeah, we two week. I I am found it to be super must see on. Mondays. I I spend more time thinking about Tuesday's. Okay. And that's fan. I guess that's what I was asking. What do these bad ratings really mean? Yeah. I don't I don't. I don't think it's a huge picture except that the TV hasn't been here. I have some audio of me talking about it. Actually, I someone asked me about it earlier. I just want to thank each you want to help grow your he's. It's still.

We we don't have enough patrons to go out on our own right now. But. Somebody brings in anyway. Hi, Brandon recently. I had the fortune of visiting France crossing beautiful. Southern French towns and villages among them was the was the town of Lourdes, which you might recall as very famous locality of where the Catholic church managed to spring of crystal clear water rising from grotto where young girl Bernadette sue Bruce in eighteen Fifty-eight witnessed an apparition of the Virgin Mary. This episode was thought to eventually lead to magical medical cures for all who visit the area being an atheist and skeptic. I thought I might have a go at asking for a permanent cure for my very old and painful football related knee injury. As always I'm prepared to admit, a re admit to a rethink about these things should the Virgin Mary make an appearance. Well, it didn't happen. Oh, no. I was hoping for your knee. Yeah. I mean, you'd have to join a church at that point. But I was let's see really sincere. Mary says, no. Anyway, he goes on I came from Lord terribly saddened as I witnessed hundreds of profoundly, disabled and ill people of all ages, so many in wheelchairs on mobile cots. Other others were the walking wounded waiting in turn to visit the magical H two. Wow. I felt an overwhelming sorrow for those poor people those poor ill and disabled people this probably being their last and only dream of cure for some the experience may have been of some advantage that I don't know humans live and hope I guess no matter how difficult life becomes perhaps. Lord, does some does serve some purpose so many ill in desperate people feel that there is a chance for for a better healthier future. Life for a better healthier future. Life for each who waits so patiently in line. However, may many I believe. Would leave bitterly disappointed? What do you guys think from Jim? Yeah. One wonders about that. Because there is something to providing a sense of hope and a sense of. And you know, there's there's probably a lot of people who walk away with some sort of. Some sort of feeling that they were healed a little bit or whatever just that's you know, from the placebo. Yeah, thing perhaps I mean, depending on what it is placebo. Can't it can't restore spinal functionality or whatever. Oh that it could right, right. But I mean, yeah, I don't I don't think it's good. I think this hurts people. I think they, you know, people will spend money to go there. They will put all of their hope into it. And they will have that hope dashed as and the walkaway. Here's the other thing. This is the bullshit of faith healing. This is the bullshit of religious promises. Is that what happens when you're when that promise is not kept when Jesus doesn't follow through is that the person is made to feel less than. Yeah. Because the person going is made to feel like, well, maybe my faith wasn't strong enough. And then they have to question themselves, and they feel guilty and shitty about themselves for something that was never their fault. It was never going to be a pro thing. But you know, it if they confront their priest and say it didn't happen. The preschool to say, we'll maybe your faith wasn't strong enough because your. Defective. Right. And fuck that shit.

"Stuff. He said back back in two thousand eleven okay. He says Jesus when he went into Jerusalem said I am the vine. I am the true vine, and until those that are called in Islam. This is no longer. Jesus words, and until those that are called in Islam realize that and until those that are called in Judaism realized that for that matter until those that are caught in the religion of Christianity, and are missing the personal relationship with Jesus Christ realized that they will there will never be peace in their soul or peace in their city. Right. Right. And so he is he says you cannot be in that land as powerful moving as it is without realizing the incredible tension this constantly in that land between the Palestinians and the Jews. There will never be peace in Jerusalem until the day comes that every knee shall bow every tongue. I shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Okay. No, first of all knees. Don't bow.

It's I was not I was blithely unaware of how deep the antisemitism in this country was running this because they've been masking it under words that I didn't know. We're code words. I'm so long, but like new world order deep St George Soros, all of these ideas are just blatant hatred of Jews. Yeah. Absolutely stem from blatant. Antisemitism. And they're all of these evangelical Christians are doing it. Right. They love Israel and fucking hate Jews. Yeah. They legitimately legitimate. Do. I mean fucking Mike Pence thing where he where where at a at a rally where they needed right after a shooting in a synagogue, right where they needed to reach out and say to the to the Jewish populace of this country. We support you. We're here for you. We're sorry. He has that fucking Jew for Jesus asshole. Come and say a prayer Jews for Jesus of why are not Jews. Right. They are asshole Christians who want to want to claim Jewish heritage. Right. It's the worst thing he could have done, right. Yeah. The yeah. So here's a man running for office blatantly. Not during the campaign right is on record. With very antisemitic beliefs, and that's that's rough that that. Yeah. But in North Carolina in the just going to be okay. Right. But this guy's dressed up. Some pastor running for for office. Nobody's going to question. It. I think in North Carolina. They understand that. A pastor is an anti Semite. They like that. That's, but I think there's you're just saying though, Dan, the broader community, right? Has has had a hard time identifying exactly where anti-semitism has existed in this. Yeah. Right. Yeah. And we need to be more aware of this clearly in light, you know, after the that synagogue. You know was shot up by a blatantly anti seven sin semitic, man. Right. Who who who picked that synagogue specifically? Because they they have they had a tradition of being a very pro refugee right community, right? There were participating in a in a or in a group that was pro refugee. Yeah. So like there was a lot going on there with with with that with that atrocity that mass shooting.

Celebrate show. Yeah. We're we're we're gonna talk about our anniversary. Yeah. We've been doing this show seven years seven years which sometime this week which in internet years is like four fifty nine. I think five hundred is real is dog years plus ten dog years. Plus sure, that's right. We are older than dogs. So we'll we'll we will be. We'll be not doing a retrospective. But we'll be we'll we have stuff to talk about. But before we do that. Why don't you talk about what's happening out there in the world? Yeah. Sure. Some hope for. I Ronnie, Dan. Oh, good. I'm a fan of a straw. There is there's a mountain. In on the big island out in Hawaii. Sure. Right. It's the peak of mwana care. Where there are a lot of telescopes. Oh, really like high-powered state of the art. It's must be a believe it must. It's one of those super dark place. Right. It's very clear skies. And yeah. Because I the lot of those peaks stay above the clouds in the in the islands. So that's that's that's an interesting detail. Nonetheless, this has been a sought after place to put some of the best telescopes on the plan, and there was some questions to whether they were going to be able to continue to do this. Even though the local government was giving the go-ahead and so forth. And so on all the all the agencies that would have some say in in the placement of this in up on that peak. However in recent decades. The native Polynesian. People have started to there's been a sort of resurgence of awareness about their traditional religion. Right. I think about this. Why believe we did? So this is a bit of a follow up right story. But they they've they've become more aware of a lot of the cultural significance of the different places on these islands. Right. And this specific peak is sacred to them, and there's a lot of cultural artifacts up there. Because reasons. Yeah. I mean who? Yeah. Okay. It's an interesting balancing act, right? Like what what is our level respect for indigenous religions and cultures versus are just need to explore the universe that? I mean, like, I have a lot of respect when you hold an idea sacred or whatever. But when it's like a plot of land that's weird to me. Anyway, it makes it a little bit more difficult. But the supreme court of Hawaii has given the go-ahead for the telescope to be built. Okay. The case was it was a convoluted case issues that were brought up in opposition to the telescope ranged from whether the original annexation of Hawaii was constitutional. So therefore, again is this state can this state government? Actually, this isn't even Dame mission. Right. Like, this doesn't but we recognize that's not gonna fly in the court of the state that they're talking about. And then they also were questioning whether the judge who was acting more as. A mediator, right. Because it was a retired judge. Sure, but whether or not her family's relationship to a planetarium constituted a conflict of interest. But at the end of the day logic, and even prevailed, but after actually coming to an interesting agreement with the those in opposition to the telescope being there in the first place, they are actually going to one of one of the issues is these telescopes the facilities get built and even once the telescope becomes obsolete. The sillage stays up on the mountain route, whatever remote place it. Yeah. They're actually going to Dc decommission and remove all three telescopes up on that mountain. Oh, and they're going to close an access road. That's going to go undergo rehabilitation return the area back to its natural state. So it seems like a win for both sides to be honest. If nobody was using those. Those telescopes or if they just weren't site scientifically significant anymore, whatever. Got him out of there. You know?.
