"Are you mediocre. No one wants to be mediocre. No one wants to admit they're mediocre yet. So many of us are so we work harder. Try harder. People are mediocre because they forgot tore never figured out why they're here and instead of following their bliss they're following safety take an example of a business owner who is scared to branch out and instead sticks with the same limiting mediocre business model instead more a talented employees who was suffocated in her work environment but stays with it because she doesn't believe she could do better or manager who cuts corners to get something done instead of pushing himself for the high level performance. Are you one of these people. Are you settling for less than your potential. Because you're afraid what are you protecting yourself from. Pain failure okay. That's fair but what about pleasure would your life look like if you focused on your strengths. Clarified your motivations let go of cognitive dissonance. And follow your bliss. Bliss is following excitement about life work relationships. You name it. Safety is avoiding pain. The former pushes us to self actualize fully and authentically the ladder wall. It keeps us mediocre. Remember those times when seemingly out of nowhere an opportunity to transform yourself appeared and you experienced fear those your higher self calling you to take your life to another level to not settle for just enough to not be mediocre instead. Invited you to lean in. Take a look at these six ways. I can help you. Stop being mediocre number. One clarify your purpose. Why are you here. What gets you out of bed in the morning. Are you excited. How are you expressing your inner fire through your daily actions. Clarity of purpose inspires courage within us to follow our bliss and overcome fears number to take inventory. Write out a list of things you do on a regular basis both personal and professional including projects. You're working on. What are your motivations for these activities. Be honest number. Three seventy five percent rule. Now test the inventory against the idea that to avoid mediocrity you should be giving at least seventy five percent of yourself to everything you do with one hundred percent being the goal of course if you're giving anything on your list less than seventy five percent of yourself. Why are you settling. Could you do better. Why or why not be truthful. If your answer is a lot of why not go back to number one or check number. Four number four dispel cognitive dissonance creatures of comfort men. At some point in our lives we built a view of the world and personal goals. That would deliver this comfort. This pleasure to us for example you grow poor so making money was important to you fast forward twenty years and you have made some money but something is still missing. That's because that belief is now a trap after all these years that belief has become part of your identity and since it has always been important and must still imporant. It feels that way but what if it no longer is what it morphed into something else. What if it never were was only a function of survival. Not your true desire. Dig deeper for answers and be aware. The brain can play tricks on us. Something may seem so true but it isn't. Don't be tricked. No rob you of grayness. Number five shuffle. After you've completed these four steps what concrete action can you take to change your life. In a way that will lead to more opportunities to give one hundred percent and less situations where you're trapped out of kilt habit or fear and are giving less than you could. Does that mean quitting job seeking out a new opportunity. Starting her business writing that book or seizing a new adventure. Whatever it might be this is your opportunity to step up and transform your life in a tangible way and number six accountability. None of us is perfect and giving one hundred percent on a regular basis or even realizing that we're not and thus falling into mediocrity can be hard to both see an remedy alone therefore i strongly encourage you to identify accountability mechanisms. That helped push you to function a. You're one hundred percent. These could be achieved through self reflection. Mentorship relationships personal and professional developments a partner and certainly a life coach whether you choose one or all of these remember that the path to greatness is only truly possible with others by your side. Doing what scares us is what makes us great safety. Never made any one great. The question remains are you mediocre or are you great
The Biden Relief Bill: Who Gets What
"Okay. Who is getting. What in the biden. Bill perio first up is what most adults in. The country are going to get a one time payment of up to fourteen hundred dollars. This is the single biggest part of the bill. And here's where the bill stands. Now if you made less than seventy five thousand dollars either last year or the year before you will get the full amount fourteen hundred bucks beyond that if you made between five thousand and eighty thousand dollars you get a smaller amount and if you made more than eighty thousand dollars you will not get one of these checks for married couples who file their taxes together. The cutoff for getting a check is a combined. Income of one hundred and sixty thousand dollars in these checks are both the biggest and the most universal part of the bill. The exact amount of money that your household will get does depend on a few things in addition to your income. Like whether you have kids or other dependents but even so roughly eighty to ninety percent of all households in the us are gonna get checks for some amount of money and the hope is that people will spend that money to help boost the economy so next step people who are getting money in the stimulus bill. The unemployed four hundred dollars per week on top of what they would normally get from their state in unemployment benefits when there isn't a pandemic and that extra four hundred dollars. A week will last until nearly the end of august and there's a lot of people still claiming unemployment benefits each week almost nine times as many people as a year ago right before the pandemic started. That's more than nineteen million people claiming those benefits right now and a big part of the reason why there are so many is the government has expanded the range of people who can qualify for these benefits during the pandemic and the reason unemployment benefits matter for the overall economy. Is that the allow people to continue spending money while they are between jobs paying their rent buying groceries buying school supplies for their kids yet without the extra four hundred dollars. Unemployment benefits would only replace less than half of a workers lost income on average but with the extra four hundred dollars from the stimulus bill. These benefits will be replacing more than eighty five percent of the lost income for the average unemployed worker up state and local governments. What they're going to get from the bill so tax revenues for a lot of state and local governments have just deride pandemic and some of them have been forced to cut back on services that they typically provide like garbage collection law enforcement mental health and addiction treatment services and a bunch of others state and local governments have also had to lay off one point three million workers especially a lot of workers in public schools teachers administrators janitors. It's one of the hardest hit sectors of the labor market so this bill provides three hundred and fifty billion dollars for state and local governments. And actually that might end up more money than state and local governments lost during the pandemic three hundred and fifty billion dollars is above the range of estimates for how much money state and local governments will have lost through next year. But it's also true that some states and local governments are in worse shape than others and so one of the big debates in the senate is over just how to allocate this money between different states and cities. And we're gonna pass here for a second because if we stop right here just right now out of the cost of those three things that we have discussed the checks that go out to almost everybody. Stimulus checks the bigger unemployment insurance benefits and the money that goes to state and local governments. That is the biggest part of the bill. Roughly half of it around a trillion dollars is going to go to those three things combined yet and there's all kinds of interesting and important stuff and the rest of the bill to so. Here's a few more that we definitely think are worth mentioning. Starting with what parents are gonna get. Yes so parents are going to get an extra fourteen hundred dollars for each of their children and this includes adult children who parents list as their dependence. Yeah so if you are. A family of four people say to spouses and two kids. The total amount. You're gonna get in those one time. Checks is up to fifty six hundred dollars. But that's not all. The bill also increases the size of the child tax credit for one year. So parents will now be able to offset their tax bills by thirty six hundred dollars for each kid under the age of six the really young ones and by three thousand dollars for other kids who are not yet adults bottom line take that same family of four and let's say both parents make less than seventy five thousand dollars each year and let's say their two kids are very young. They're toddlers that family could get a total of nearly thirteen thousand dollars in checks and tax credits because of this bill. Okay and now. Let's look at what schools are going to get kindergarten to twelfth grade. Schools are gonna get roughly one hundred and thirty billion dollars but maybe what's most interesting is what that money is intended for. Yes so this money is not for textbooks. It is for things that make it easier for schools to reopen and operate during the pandemic. So things like improving ventilation buying more personal protective equipment and even changing the shape of a classroom so that social distancing between students is easier next up. The bill includes tens of billions of dollars for loans and grants to businesses and the industry. That's going to get the single biggest amount in grants. So that's money that does not have to be paid back is bars and restaurants yup bars and restaurants. They can prove they lost money. Last year will be eligible for up to ten million dollars each in grants and the bill has set aside a total of twenty five billion dollars for eateries and watering holes and restaurants. And though that is the most any industry is getting in this bill. Some perspective is important here last year. Bars and restaurants lost about a hundred and forty five billion dollars sales from the year before. It's a twenty percent decline and there are still nearly two and a half million fewer jobs in bars and restaurants than before the pandemic and this year knock on wood will not be as bad because people are getting vaccinated. Covid cases are coming down and more of the country is reopening still. That is a huge hole to dig out of
$1,400 checks in COVID-19 relief bill would phase out at $80,000 instead of $100,000
"We report that. Senate democrats are making a change to the coronavirus relief package. That would tighten for some of the direct payments to americans last week. The house approved a plan to give full fourteen hundred dollar checks to individuals. Earning up to seventy five thousand dollars and phase out payments gradually up to one hundred thousand dollars in earnings. The cutoff couples was two hundred thousand now. Lawmakers say people earning more than eighty thousand and couples. Earning over one hundred sixty thousand will no longer be eligible for any stimulus. The senate is preparing for a vote on the package this week.

Why Has the US Sanctioned Russian Officials but Not the Saudis?
"The. Us treasury department sanctioning russian officials in response to the poisoning the attempted assassination of a russian political leader and dissident alexi navalny ni With novacek. Do you think this is a good idea. I do i do i. It was just unacceptable for the united states to be silent in the wake of russia's most important opposition leader being intentionally poisoned now in prison by putin's government. I mean if we don't lead the global fight to protect democracy and stand up for pro democratic movements in places like russia no one will and what we see is that the forces of despotism are on the march democrat democracies that we took for granted just ten years ago are now slowly sliding away from self determination even in and on the edges of europe and so by standing up to one of the world's most brutal bullies vladimir putin We are also. I think sending a signal to nascent democracy movements and fragile democracies that america is back on the democracy promotion stage so speaking of that. There's a there. Of course. Also the release of the previously classified report about the intelligence communities findings about bin hamad bin salman that he had greenlighted at the very least the operation to capture or kill but those are the words. They're a jamal khashoggi. Newspaper columnist the washington post. The biden administration not doing anything personally. Mohammed bin salman not revoking visa. Travel rights were personal sanctions. Saying the emas recalibration not a rupture. We've been very clear with a saudi. This is an historic partnership. It's lasted for seventy five years. What do you think of that. I mean i think you can sort of connect these two conversations. There's no question that vladimir putin ordered the poisoning of alexei navalny but we didn't announce sanctions on putin today largely because We tend to not levy sanctions on the leaders of countries And i think that is probably part of the rationale for why m b. s. was spared sanctions but i would make this argument on saudi arabia. I frankly think that Nbs weapons matter much more to him than his visa. And so what i would argue is that we should recalibrate. Our security partnership with the saudis. I if they're going to be in the business of chopping up dissidents or targeting them all around the world and we shouldn't be selling them weapons and so. I think the administration is right now. Having debate about what our security partnership looks like and if we make changes to that well. It looked like a personal sanction on. Mvs you'll have a big impact on him and his priorities. Senator chris murphy. Thanks for making time tonight.
Seattle to open more permanent COVID-19 vaccination sites in Rainier Beach, West Seattle, Lumen Field Event Center
"Been reporting how seattle is turning some of its testing sites into permanent vaccination sites starting today the rainier beach side is prepared to give about two thousand shots a week and so is second location in west seattle. Kyw's josh amac nickeled visited the rainier beach vaccination clinic today joshua high and describe this vaccination site for us well like every other side. It's open to people who are eligible. Mostly that means seniors over sixty five but there are a few other categories to like home health workers anyway. Everyone who shows up here has an appointment and they walk up and they check in at a table and then when it's their turn they passed. They passed through one of several shipping containers on a train or on the back of a truck and inside there is an administrator in a little booth. And there's someone from the fire department and that person gives you your shot and then you walk out the back of the shipping container into an outdoor area and then you hang out under a tent for like fifteen minutes with a view of the lake all right well. Did you get to speak to anyone there. Yeah i spoke to a lot of seniors there in the recovery tent. And they told me before today trying to get a vaccination appointment was a real chore. Roberta bird right said she couldn't sleep. She wanted an appointment so badly. Given times i wake up you know in the morning. Three o'clock two o'clock in during the throughout the day. And then of course the site that we look. It's like places. Like well up in tacoma and you know really far out. And i'm not going to those places so i just kept looking and looking so now opened up so she also got on wait lists at pharmacies and they told her they'd call but they never did and then she heard from a friend that the southeast seattle senior center was helping seniors make appointments and so she called. They called me back right away like within a few days and schedule being. I'm here bird right. Told me that she had concerns about the safety of the vaccine so it was reassuring for her to go through a community group. Yeah that's good news that roberta got her shot. And just you know. We've been hearing stories about grandkids helping their grandparents schedule. An appointment you know for a variety of reasons you know. Maybe the grandparents don't have a smartphone or computer or maybe like roberta's case the the grandparents are trying to just striking out but in this case it sounds like the senior center is stepping in. Yes and that is the strategy here. They're still far more demand for vaccines than there is supply and so these new vaccination sites are favoring referrals they're working closely with community groups and those groups are doing the outreach. Linda green runs the southeast seattle senior center. That's the group that helped this person earlier. Find their appointment and she says she got her staff spending all their time. Basically going after vaccination appointments for seniors. But it's hard because there just aren't enough vaccines so she said it feels like a competition. Well it's a competition because now we're have folks who are competing you've got the folks who are seventy five years old and older. We've got the sixty five year old. We've got those folks who are under fifty but are also caretakers for those who are sixty five and over or seventy and over. And i know that we have to start from the top the most vulnerable and work our way down but it still is somewhat competitive as to. Who's going to get it first. So all of those those areas we still have to define but we are of the opinion that the goal is for everyone to get vaccinated so whomever we can fit into that classification. That's what we're doing. Yeah and in that competition for vaccines. It helps to have a community group to help you get an appointment. But eventually officials tell me the problem will cease to be a vaccine shortage problem and will become a communication problem. You know trying to get enough people to show up and use all the vaccines right. And we're hearing. There will be more and more vaccinations slots opening up later as well and and another thing. We learned today. Josh was later this month. There's going to be another max. Vaccination site opening up in seattle At the former centurylink field now known as linfield yes and with that site. They're going to start small in the middle of the month but as soon as enough vaccines are on the way that site will be able to push out twenty one thousand vaccinations per day. They told me yeah. That sounds like a lot of shots. When is that going to be. They wouldn't say for sure. Only the it'll happen as soon as possible. And if you're a senior and you want to be proactive linda. Green at the southeast seattle senior center says give them a call. And they'll help you. You don't even have to be in seattle proper anywhere in king. County is fine and then of course you can also use the washington phase finder website. Which helped at least one senior here today.
How Effective Is The COVAX Scheme?
"The vaccination program in britain is by accounts going extremely well. The country's ordered four hundred and fifty seven million doses of the job or enough to dose the population. Three point six times over. So what happens to the surplus until the world is protected against the virus there is little hope of eradicating karuna. Well this is where the kovacs scheme comes in led by the world health organization it also involves the global vaccine alliance gavi and the coalition for epidemic preparedness innovations and hopes to deliver more than two billion doses. Two people one hundred ninety countries in less than a year. China and russia are also racing to provide inoculations but is this altruism or a soft power push men will martin is medical innovation and policy advisor at msf's access campaign and joins me on the line. Now man will thanks for coming on. We're seeing this program begins to roll out. Globally garner has become the first to receive vaccinations through kovacs. But how effective is the scheme proving so far. Good morning So so far. It is delivering doses as you save the i also have been delivered to ghana however it is only delivering thus far vaccines of two different manufacturers. One of pfizer and one of his of astrazeneca and so far the numbers are quite limited. It has not yet secured enough doses in binding agreements to come through on. Its promise to deliver two billion doses of kobe. Vaccine's towards partners people are countries that are participating in colfax and also. Another big problem is that it's been incredibly transparent about the way that it signs deals. We don't know the prices that have been paid for these vaccines and we also don't know what what kind of concessions these agreements have come between. Gabby which is negotiating partner. Go backs and pharmaceutical industry. Who's at fault. Here is rich. Western countries hoarding or the venue vaccine manufacturers themselves. I think it's a bit of both so obviously the country's securing large volumes of doses to vaccinate as you've said multiple times their population is a big part of the problem but the other problem is also that pharmaceutical companies have been willing to sign. These deals when could imagine a different scenario where pharmaceutical companies prioritized deals with the kovacs acidity over signing bilateral deals with countries precisely because it's a pandemic and because global solidarity the only way we're going to get out of this. I mean britain. You have pledged to give their surplus supplies with that plug the hole so far what i have seen has have only been commitments to donate some doses once. They've reached a certain threshold. I think the you is aiming to back. Say seventy percent of its population by summer britain. Somewhere close to seventy five percent. And i mean let's just be clear what that means that means that in these countries low risk young individuals will be back soon aged for many developing countries can even max innate just their healthcare workers in their elderly the truly. They're at risk. The other problem that we're seeing is and is that a vaccine in particular the oxford astrazeneca vaccines that these countries have bought are now sitting around not being used. Because people fear that they're not as effective as they should be so with these stockpiles. Just sitting around. I really fear that they may actually go out of date before there used and that would really be a shame when there's so much need in the developing
Trevor Noah Doesn't Want To Hear Your Vaccine Excuses
"Hundred thousand covert deaths a number that. Nobody wanted to see and as painful as that. Is you have to admit you have to admit it is nice to see. America's president actually take a moment just a moment to recognize the toll that corona virus has taken. I mean the only time the previous president showed any sadness was when he accidentally deleted fox news off of his. Dvr what a day for americans. What does that day. My sweet hannity has gone. The good news is that the number of new infections has plummeted in the last few weeks. But what's interesting is the number that they've plummeted to is where they were lost july. Which at the time. Everyone thought was so horrifying that the country immediately started locking down again. And this just goes to show you that your perspective can change based on where you're coming from. That's it's like. If i go to tech right now wolf i'd probably be like this is my life but if i went from being attacked by full wolves to one wolf. I'm probably be like what a relaxing way to stop the week. So look this is why it's so important to get people vaccinated as quickly as possible. And don't give me any excuses about how you're too busy or it's not convenient last weekend and nine hundred year old. Seattle woman walked six miles in the snow to keep her appointment because the roads hadn't been plowed. Which is incredible. Although if you believe people stories walking miles snow is what they do all the time. They love that shit but still if a nine year old woman can do it. You can do it too. I don't tell me but trevor. I'm not ninety years old too young to get the vaccine right now. That's also no excuse a strange story now. Showing the length to florida women were willing to go to to get the vaccine. They're caught dressing as granny's just so they can get the shot now. Here's the thing it worked for. The first time around officials say the women are thirty. Four and forty four years old so you can see one of the more abundant and long cardigan. Didn't make much of an effort to cover up a vaccinators thought. They looked funny so they were stopped before getting their shots. And that's when they found out both women had faked their birth dates. Now officials want to know how they were able to get away with getting the first shot. The women are not facing any charges but police did yell at them calling their actions selfish okay. This is outrageous. You call that dressing up as a granny. All that woman did was put on. Its own and that other. One didn't do anything to wig hunch over or even easier just download the facebook phone. I mean if you got that you're seventy five minimum. If you want to teach away to the vaccine you at least have to put in the work. No one would have booked charade. I'm pretty sure. Mrs doubtfire wouldn't have gotten the kids back if he's just showed up like hey. It's me mrs doubtfire nanny. How did they even think that they could pretend to be old women at that age. I mean personally. I blame porn. You know they start putting women in the category of twenty six. Of course we have unrealistic ideas of what granny's look like but what's crazy is they would have gotten away with it if the doctors hadn't gotten suspicious. Hey wait a minute. If you're a grandma how come you haven't tried to set me up with one of your grandkids yet.
Chicago-area worker fighting for minimum wage raise for all
"Negotiations on the latest code nineteen relief bill are underway in congress but a key democratic priority is in question president. Joe biden had initially pushed for proposal in the bill that would raise the federal minimum wage to fifteen dollars by the year. Twenty twenty-five no matter what happens at the federal level chicago goes to fifteen dollars this summer while illinois is on a path to fifteen dollars by the year twenty twenty-five earlier this week. Parachutes had a conversation with rob car president of the illinois retail merchants association and adriana alvarez mcdonald's employees and a leader in the chicago chapter of for fifteen. He began by asking alvarez. What's important to her to continue pushing at the national level. Despite illinois's hike being done deal you know. I do believe that this is Everyone's fight I'm not the only one struggling here in illinois you know There's a bunch of people out there struggling So i believe that the federal the federal minimum wage should go up to livable wage of fifteen dollars. An hour rob car. You represent businesses illinois. What are you hearing from your members about the most recent hike in illinois and in chicago again expected to go to fifteen dollars this summer struggling great word for it. There's a lot of employers for struggling as well which is why we historic on them. State as a result of the pandemic. It's going to impose. I think for us for for washington. Elways cautionary tale in that. You don't want to do this and you want to think twice about doing all certain epic because it makes components I what about that. The nonpartisan congressional budget office put out a study this month saying that raising the minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour. It would live nearly a million people out of poverty but it could also lead to the loss of one point four million jobs. Could it actually hurt workers instead of help in my opinion i don't think so The more money. I have in my pocket. I'll be able to go to these small mom and pop shops that i have by my house. I don't have to make the trip to you know those big corporations that Have the deals So i'm not going to be saving any kind of money. I'm going to be spending it right back into the economy rob car if you look at the minimum wage adjusted for inflation over. The last several decades really hasn't gone up at all in fact it's gone down. Should the minimum wage at least keep up with inflation. Well i think the calculation depends on where you start. Become finished from sixty eight has been chosen by the advocates rather randomly choose from other years so different story. But no you don't wanna have wage on automatic increments. Sales are not automatic increase for example. When i when you talk about the retail sector. I represent It's been horrible policy. The state of illinois to continuous minimum wage increases in the midst of this pandemic when she would have something automatic on like that so that would be a terrible approach. What about that Again Rob is saying there shouldn't be automatic raises but if you look at the minimum wage adjusted for inflation It really hasn't moved at all. And then we're talking about fifty years since. Yeah it's it's been you know. The federal minimum wage has been stuck since two thousand nine. And i mean everything else has gone up We have to work two three jobs just to you know by essential stuff and i honestly don't think that that's that's right And seventy five is not enough

A history of Mountweazels
"Suppose. I wanted to start a company that sold maps i hire cartographers and spend a lot of time and money going out and gathering data. Because i'm just documenting something which exists in reality. The end result of all my hard work and investment is going to look just like other maps. That are out there already. So why couldn't i just skip all the effort and copy the maps which already exist. Sure i'll change the font and the colors but fundamentally the end result is going to be the same either way right. This is a big problem for any maker of reference products maps dictionaries and encyclopedias. You can't copyright facts but you can take steps to show that someone is a plagiarist or violating. Copyright they do this via copyright traps copyright traps are nothing more than false information which is putting reference material to catch people who copy their content. If you copy everything without checking you'll copy the false information which will be evidence of plagiarism. Promos famous example was in the nineteen seventy five new columbia encyclopedia. they created an entry for one lillian. Virginia mount weasel. They created a full entry in the encyclopedia for which was totally fiction. According to the entry lillian. Mount weasel was a photographer who was famous for her photos of south. Sierra me walk whatever that is according to the entry quote. Mount weasel died at thirty one in an explosion while on assignment for combustibles magazine unquote while there was no cases of anyone actually copying the mount weasel entry. The term amount weasel is now a term for a copyright trap. there's a million.

Who Wins Or Loses If There's An Increase In The Federal Minimum Wage?
"The covid relief bill moving through congress includes a higher minimum wage for someone like lisa harris. Who works grocery store outside richmond. Virginia that make a big difference able to afford the things that i need to get by day to day without having to ask one ability to feel that i am a contributing member to byatti. I mean they say thank you and that were essential. That were heroes. But we can't feed our families off of being heroes scaling up from seven. Twenty five an hour to fifteen dollars. An hour is still running into resistance though and testing democratic unity in congress. David wessel is following. The debate is of the hutchins center at the brookings institution. David good morning. Good morning steve. So there's always case made against raising the minimum wage. We're told that if you raise the minimum wage employers are just going to hire fewer people. What's the evidence here. Well textbook economic says if you raise the price of something there's going to be less demand for it. In this case less demand from employers for low wage essential workers now the question is how many winners and how many losers one influential estimate comes from the congressional budget office. They estimate that by twenty twenty five which is when the wages supposed to get to fifteen dollars. It would mean twenty. Seven million people would be getting a raise. Nine hundred thousand fewer people would be in poverty but one point four million fewer people would be working or not having got hired on the other hand economist. Aaron debate at the university of massachusetts at amherst has been looking at what happens when states raise minimum wages and he argues that the latest evidence suggests that. Cbo is overestimating the ill effects of raising the wage. A fifteen bucks okay. So a lot of people benefit. Some people may be hurt. But there's an argument over how many people are actually hurt. That's the point of view of the employees. What about the employer. business owners objected. Here well it would raise their payroll costs for sure now. Some employers would may discover that they have better workers or less turnover so it might not hurt them that much some would suck it up in the form of lower profits somewhat. Pass it onto their consumers in the form of higher prices and some would get by with fewer workers are cut the hours of their workers they would clearly be very painful for some businesses and particularly for some businesses like those in the fast food industry that already been hit hard by the covid pandemic but really interesting new academic paper that looked at ten thousand mcdonald's outlets many of them in states or cities that have raised. The minimum wage found that nearly all of them raise prices to cover the extra costs and interestingly it found that despite higher labor costs they didn't more of them didn't install high-tech touch screen ordering that potentially saves labor which suggests that consumers would pay but workers would benefit as well. David you've referred a couple of times here to the fact that some states have already raised the minimum wage. Well above what the federal minimum is. When you look at this debate does it. Matter what part of the country we're looking at it matters a lot. Twenty nine states and the district of columbia have set their minimum wages above the federal seven. Twenty five and hour minimum and so have several cities raising the minimum wage to fifteen dollars. An hour across the country would have a huge impact on some states in the south that are paying seven two thousand five hundred minimum wage or state like west virginia where the minimum wage is now. Eight dollars and seventy five cents an hour. That's of course politically important. Because democrat senator joe manchin has indicated. He's against a fifteen hour wage and his opposition could be fatal to the proposal but a fifteen dollars. Minimum wage would have much less impact in states. Like california where it's already set to go to fifteen dollars. It's thirteen dollars now. And in florida voters in november approved a referendum that takes their minimum wage to fifteen bucks over the next few years no matter what congress does anything special about going up to exactly fifteen an hour. Not really it's politically important. The fact is that the minimum wage has been stuck at seven twenty five since two thousand nine. It would be close to nine dollars. An hour fifty kept up with inflation since
The Case Of The Dead Fortune Teller
"On april of nineteen. Seventy five the. Us army pulled out of the vietnam war as the capital city of saigon fell to the socialist people's army of vietnam in the days prior and the days and weeks following the fall of saigon the. Us military accused several operations aimed at evacuating refugees. Fleeing the communist government operation baby lift evacuated over three thousand three hundred children and the operation. Frequent wind rescued more than seven thousand vietnamese operation. New life and new arrivals saw these refugees processed in guam before being transported to a few army bases across the united states. One of which was camp pendleton in orange county california all in all orange county slowly assimilated thousands of vietnamese thirty years later in two thousand five that influx of vietnam refugees successfully transformed a stretch of strawberry fields and salvage yards in westminster calif into something more familiar. The area is now known as little saigon. Little saigon in westminster california is the largest vietnamese population outside of saigon. A a result of that There are often street signs in little saigon that are in vietnamese businesses. Use silage in vietnamese. It almost gives you the feeling of being in vietnam but you're in california as a result of that. There is a large presence of cultural traditions in little saigon. The cafes are popular karaoke bars. All kinds of ethnic foods and things like dad can easily found in little saigon. This a place where people from the vietnamese community can gather and talk and there's a sense of community there. This is sonia but yesterday my name is sonia. Chief deputy district attorney at santa barbara. Da's office a decade ago. I worked at the orange. County district attorney's office vietnamese in orange county brought with them to the united states. The kind of determination that only comes with the suffering and adversity that they had endured but also they brought their culture their food and their superstitions one major aspect of the vietnamese culture is what some in the us might consider a novelty pastime. Fortune telling to the vietnamese is serious business deeply rooted in their cultural history. Community members will consult fortune tellers for all sorts of reasons like making sure their businesses are properly situated for the flow of good energy to ward off evil spirits and haunted souls with rituals and spells to diagnose supernatural causes of illness establishing lucky dates for personal undertakings and to predict the future of wealth. Health and love. Then two thousand five. One of the most popular fortune tellers in little saigon was haas smith who went by the name. Jade i say was because in april of that year. She was found murdered in the home she shared with her daughter. Anita vo anita's ex-boyfriend young tran would visit regularly. Bringing coffee and snacks. In an attempt to rekindle their relationship him in anita had been dating for a period of time and very young love and as such can be kinda volatile times deterrent in the sense of It wasn't a serious romance at least it wasn't for anita but there was a real friendship there so i think that in his efforts to not only lure her back but general friendship and carrying it would not be unusual for him to share a meal. Bring over some coffee or just talk to her on a regular basis even if they were not quote unquote boyfriend and girlfriend. So happens is young. Tran goes and delivers coffee and biscuits and he leaves it in the front door area of the home he never enters
Interview With Douglas Hill
"Well hello everyone and welcome to another podcast from frames magazine my name is scott olsen and today i have an absolute thrill we are talking with doug hill. Doug is a corporate photographer. A fine art photographer. His work has been all over the place. It's in magazines books. Catalogues it's at the j. Paul getty museum the library of congress the museum of photographic arts in huntington library. You know of course for his work at frames a very active member of the community. Doug welcome how's everything out in los angeles today. Thank you very much scott. It's a pleasure to be here today. It's probably seventy five degrees and sunny but we're on stay at home orders though. I'm stuck in the office at the moment. Oh th that's a shame because seventy five degrees and sunny out in los angeles. That's a photographer's dream. That's what everybody hopes for. You could get that beautiful light out there does. There is so much that. I wanna talk to you about your photography there. There's so much about this. That i find really impressive and enlightening but i got to begin at the beginning i i really wanna know. How in the world did you get from being you know the seven year old with instamatic up to a world class corporate and fine art photographer. I got started. I got my first series camera niagara matt and the reason that i got it was that i was going out with someone who was very interested in pursuing an acting career. And the well. Here's a perfect opportunity. I'll have a model someone that i can work with them. And start to figure out how the camera work then actually worked out pretty well straight off the bat and i had access to actors and actresses drew agents and producers and folks like that so i began doing head shots and i did that for several years but after awhile i began to burn out on. I certainly loved working with people but there was something about the process of shooting. That was kind of growing stale. So i started looking around for other things that i could do with a camera. I had been interested as a kid in architecture. Thought i might even become an architect at one point except that there was way too much math involved and I i got a four by five. Large format camera and began shooting buildings that interested me but didn't know what to do next with it so i started calling all of the architectural photographers. The serious ones in the area Maybe a dozen people. It was before the the field had really burgeoned. I call them all Asking if they need assistance most of them alike. We said no including julius schulman said nad on the internet system Recommended a guy named leeland lee who had been his assistant for a number of years especially through the period when julius was at the height of his powers and he said you talked to leland and i have confidence that that that may work out. I called leyland. Leland was gracious enough to say sure. Come on by. I showed him some of my work. He said well. This isn't very good Which was but i thought. Okay i'll i'll plough on. But he said you know what. I can use an assistant and you're welcome to to start doing that. If it interests you so it did very much. And i learned an incredible amount from him working with him in the first year that i got to know him and i started to pick up clients and found that i really enjoyed the work. I enjoyed working at a much. Slower pace It was hard work physical work. There's a lot more lighting. The cameras were larger and heavier. It required an attention to detail that i discovered i. I really enjoyed so. I stuck with architecture photography for many years at the same time. It's doing some fine art. I had gone to ucla and studied there. And and also cal arts. So i i was sort of on these two tracks one being the commercial architectural work and the other being fine art.

"seventy five g" Discussed on Fun with Bells - bell and handbell ringing interviews
"Bells on the Wednesday before. Yeah I I write about on the way. Oh that was my girlfriend a couple of days later. All the we had always. I won't for much about a wave pool. We right wonder we right in France. Logical wonderful various. Oh the bells this stuff back. That's absolutely wonderful. And I think we should remind listeners. On your one hundred thirsty you also rang. Grant triples some very cool. It appeals that dentists wrong have been reported in the ringing world as such ringing is appeals and quarter peals run to celebrate the victory with published in the ringing worldwide on the eighteenth of twenty fifth of May nineteen forty five. It is interesting that in the days before the Internet. It peels appeared in print within ten days. Who although the postal service was different than many of the peels were simpler methods? Such as playboy major with occasional more complex peels the only twelve bell. Peal was less to cathedral conducted by Harold J pool. This quarter I as his wife who Ryan alongside him was listed as Mris H J pool. The vast majority of ringers in the other appeals. Were also male another sign of those different times. The footnotes will short. So it's difficult to know more about the story behind many of the peels. Today we all used to seeing knows explaining the reasons for ringing such as birthday or wedging aniversary celebration postal milestones at ringing career or to mark special occasion in church life. Footnotes in the victory peels would deliberately restricted to simply recording. Those who wrangler I PEEL? The editor of the ringing world commented there could be no doubt that for the people of England the sound of bells except when it is to call people to prayer can mean one thing and one thing only everything else. Mus give place to that. The editor was any prepared to make an exception for muffled peals in memory of the deceased nevertheless it is to interesting to see that three people rang their first peel at call phone in Yorkshire at Priddle Well said in Essex and had wool in Dorset. Four people rang their first peel at rock board. Cheney near Swindon in Wiltshire on at Harefield in Gloucestershire even more extraordinary is that five people wrangler I did in Somerset at berries an Edmonds Cathedral and at Bray in Berkshire. No doubt is five people ringing their first deal together quite an achievement on hardly ever achieve nowadays but the ten bells at. Bray and buries an edmonds are around one and a half tons which is heavy well over. Three Hours. Ringing would have been thirsty. Work in May the editorial on the eighteenth of May also commented that since the break of war the attitude of people towards bells has been different to what it had been for many years before and encountered ringers to retain that respect and support by remembering. The Bell should be rung so that they give pleasure to those who hear them outside. And now. We're going to listen to Allen. Talk to Eric Hitchens. Who was one of those who rang their first peel on the day? Eric I understand that you learned to ring before the end of global two. Could you explain to listeners?

I lost my brother Lawrence who is in the last year so Hanging on you know very good hit. You'll still going strong eric. And thank you for this. It's delightful memories and so to sum up in World War Two. The Bells were initially assigned. What might have sounded like an important role in the defense of the country but was in effect a ban on ringing. It took over two years but this ban was lifted by an order at the highest level in the land and before the end of the war having initially supported the government the world afterwards called it little more than rather stupid bureaucratic interference. After the plan we can see with the benefit hindsight that ring did recover and with renewed confidence and the affection of the British people are bells was fully revealed. Bell ringers rang in force on vide. So that many people in remember the ban and the bells ringing again on that day leading historians too often get this story wrong. We can learn many lessons from what the Bell Rings did when confronted with the ban in World War. Two their inventiveness and the optimism and their determination to practice their ringing throughout and what. Today's ban bell ringers are increasingly using technology to sustain their absorbing fascination with the art more of that in a later episode of Fun with Bells. Now we should follow the advice. Stay home protect the NHS and save lives but look forward as ringing forebears did to the day when bell ringing resumes and the sound of bells will once more be apart of the soundscape.

"seventy five g" Discussed on The Ross Bolen Podcast
"He does what they ask him to do defensively, they there is a constant most of the time. I think that you may be, I think Kevin Durant a better defensive player than you think. Okay. He's long. Yeah. Okay. During the reign has improved as well. But to to think that harden isn't if not, in the top three, if not. If none the I find, I think he's the second or third best player in the league. And if you wanna say he's not, you're going to have to. I just don't what's interesting to me about it is not even like I totally. I am of the opinion that integrates NBA where we have the talent pool that we have. You could make argument that they're like, fifteen different dudes. The belong in the top five. And I totally understand when people wanna leave hard out. What doesn't make sense to me is when we're including, you know, a k. d. or Steph, but not hard in the conversation. That's where I started to get pissed off because it's like, whoa, hold up what? Let's not pretend Steph Curry's every defended anyone ever in his entire. He might be the biggest liability on the defensive side of the ball in the history of the NBA. I've never seen anybody get attacked on on defense the way the Steph does because he's the most clear whole on their team, and he's so easy to exploit. But this happens with Durant to and yes might get you make good point. The rent has improved vastly on the defensive side of the ball, and he is a better defender, James harden due to his link height, his quickness. He's just a better defender point blame. But if you're gonna talk about Durant, you know being the second best player and you can't put hardening your top five. I'm just missing something. And I, I guess the point of this this segment is to try to figure out what it is that I am missing. What is it hit me up? What is it that you people have such an issue with with James? Like because if it is the his look or you know, the fact that you use to, he's not much enough of a vocal leader for you or something like that, then I'll get with it like, I'll listen to your argument. It just fascinates me how he gets so little credit. So little respect, even fresh off an MVP season. And I think it probably works out well for him to continue to have kind of an underdog mentality or whatever, but it just bums me out like don't fuck in pretend that this dude is not one of the best five at least players in the NBA. That's just silly, but to not even be soundly in the top three on a Twitter poll the year after winning the MVP in coming from game. Away from the finals is just kind of a bummer. I'll just leave it at that. Hit me with your James harden takes. I wanna talk more about James harden. That's what I'm saying..
"seventy five g" Discussed on The Ross Bolen Podcast
"So. It just it just frustrates me because I'm a huge James harden fan, admittedly, very, very biased. How little respect the dude seems to get. There are reasonable arguments that I am more than willing to listen to when it comes to LeBron James. Obviously, considering I just openly acknowledged that I think he is an all around better player than James harden Kevin Durant. I will listen to. Obviously, because I think he is just, I think this is one of the places that I get upset. I think harden is good of a score as Durant is, and I don't think Durant is better on defense. So where is the argument that so many people are so convinced Kevin Durant is in arguably the second best player in the NBA James harden can't even make your top five. Because there are a lot of people who think that way. Because Katie jumped onto the best team ever with four other all stars get the fuck out here. That's not. I just don't get it. Hilariously Westbrook doesn't fall anywhere near most people's top five, which is funny. He's usually closer to like number ten. I will also accept arguments for Steph curry. I get I get how some people could see Steph being an all around better player than James. He's fucking terrible defense. And that pisses me off. He significantly worse defensively than harden is now, but he Steph curry, maybe the best shooter of all time. I believe him to be the best shooter vault time ever period in the game is about shooting and scoring. Is it not John the coup bows? The only other guy that I will listen to arguments for, but it just frustrates me. And I'm and it's less frustration now in just like curiosity, I'm just so interested in why it is that the majority of the public does not seem to like James harden or enjoy him as much as I do. I want everybody to enjoy him as much as I do, I guess. And I know that's not realistic, but tonight even have him in the top three after he just wanted to be got, you know, one quarter from the finals. Really a game from the finals is is odd. Mike, do you have thoughts on what it is is weird about this? Do he rubs people wrong way? I don't. But I think there's a, there's an argument to be made about best player versus valuable player, of course share. Yeah, hardened played. I believe all eighty two games or at least played upwards of eighty games. Miss a handful. I think this past year, but yes, he's he's been recently. He's clearly more valuable to his team than any other player in the league except LeBron much more so than Durant or Currier would bore in Russell Westbrook probably, yes. I don't understand. He isn't unbelievable offense of player and he's salt..

"Mybookie dot AG today. Next segment, more sports, James harden judgment. Now I realize it's not the NBA season and I realized football season is kicking off in this conversation. Topic might be a bit out of place, but I kind of don't care. It's something that I'm passionate about and I'm fascinated by. I wanted to Scott just a little bit. As you all know, James harden received the NBA's MVP award for this most recent season. Many felt he should receive the award the year before when Russell Westbrook got it. But Russ averaged a triple double, and it was kind of a predetermined deal. If you ask me. Harden is led the rockets to the best regular season in the NBA last year, he got the rockets to within one game of the NBA finals before being eliminated by Golden State Warriors in game seven, arguably the greatest team of all time. So I ran a Twitter poll last night. And we're like one day into the polls existence. It has like three thousand votes, basically right now in the question was this if you're listing your top three players in the NBA, does James harden make your list as of where were sitting sixty percent of people say no forty percents, say yes and what you have to consider as I have a very big Houston following, right, like more so than any other city. Because I'm from there, I tweet a lot about the rockets, the Astros and the Texans, and you have to assume based on that, these results are going to be skewed in favor of harden compared to what the results would be if I was from somewhere else and had less Houston followers. So the thing that is kind of shocking to me, I suppose is I knew what the answer would be from the majority of people I asked, do you consider James harden to be the best player in the NBA? I don't think very many people truly believed that he is the best all around player in the. NBA. I think most smart basketball people still realized that goes to LeBron James until further. Notice he was the best player last season even he's if if we're talking, it depends on how you define MVP and I realized that's a big thing still, it's an issue. Regular-season ward all that yada, yada. But if you telling me you wouldn't take LeBron James, if you're looking at only one season in its this season and you want the best player in the league and you wouldn't pick up a Braun. I don't know what the fuck. I don't know how you that's just we differ in opinion on that. But what is fascinating to me is how many people don't even consider hard to be a top three player even after he got the MVP award and even more. So the players that people are willing to plug into the top three instead of him guys like Anthony Davis. And the argument that a lot of people will make is like, oh, Harnden play defense using a two thousand fifteen. Excuse that. That's very true. There are Larry Instagram clips of him in the two thousand fifteen. And before seasons, being a dismal defender, he was absolutely awful and there's no getting around that. But if you're still using that excuse, it's it's just not accurate. He's an average defender now significantly better than it used to be. Is it because of the beard that maybe people don't respect him as much as he supposed to be respected or deserves to be respected or get credit as much as she should be credited or is it is soft spoken since humor, his more reserved personality. I don't know because a lot of people are willing to throw Coa lynyrd up in front of harden on the list of their best NBA players. But like Anthony Davis is the one that baffles me because if you're gonna make the argument, the Davis has better defensively fine. But if you think Davis is better offense than harden, I don't understand what you're doing. If you think he's a better facilitator, a team. Ter- we don't even close to agree in if it's about on court success. Anthony hasn't done shit. I don't even think they've won fifty games hardened just one sixty five..

"Did you have any thoughts on ESPN bringing back Chris Berman. I'm not Chris Berman guy. I would fight the fuck outta him to I. He he so angry seeming all the time. I'm not. Is that actually happening, they bring at the Berman was done, no, no. There's a story either this week or last that Berman is going to. The the new guy who's in charge of ESPN has is going to expand Berman's roll the season. Yes, because he had essentially been put out to pasture. Yeah. Okay. Well, that's interesting. Yeah, the guy that's the head of ESPN now for John skipper. His name is Jimmy Petar. Oh, and he's trying to get Chris Berman back involved in a bigger role. I'm all right with that. That is Berman introduces a lot of unintentionally funny commentary that I find to be enjoyable back my backpack. He's he's kind of cartoonish. I don't really have as much of a problem with Berman. I'd still fight him too. Mike, who would you fight? Gosh, I, I wasn't really prepared for this and I'm just not really ready to find a famous person who don't wanna fight anything as people today. I mean, there are some people, but we try and keep things out of the political realm here yet. That's definitely in that rule important. Remember. Thank you. I mean, you know what? I, I do have someone I'd like to fight Siham punk. That doesn't seem like a good idea. You don't know who seem punk is d. Ross is you see guys, not while he was a WWE wrestler who quit and then became his somehow. For some reason, the UFC gave him a contract and he had to, you have see fights over like a three year period, and he lost both of them in in truly pathetic manner. Oh, so he's not really a UFC fighter. Although he has had you to UFC fights wise his name Siham punk. There's a lot of reasons for this name. People are very devoted to him from his wrestling days, but the reason I wanna fight him isn't just because he's apparently none of their you'd fighter. The reason like to fight him is because he, he just got sued by his best friend because his best friend claimed that he was going to cover all of his legal fees and Colt Cabana is the guy's name. Okay. And punk just paying back for any of it. It's it's a law, the gist of the store. I'll give you just the the one minute thing because it's been a very red thing on sports more. I was looking in a column now over the last year. Pump quit pro wrestling, and then he went on his friends podcast and he just trashed the WWE and specifically their doctor in the doctrines sued punk for it. Punk and and his friend Cabana. Pumpkin Cabana won the lawsuit, but are they were found not guilty of of criminality, whatever, or you know, slander, whatever share, but punk apparently was like, yeah, yeah, we'll just take the scored. I'll pay your legal fees and then he just never did. So his best friend in the world had to sue him to get a half million dollars from the that's fucked up. So the guys just knees kinda douche. He's also is also, you know, and I think I could take another. I've been training. His name is Siham punk. I think he legally changed his name to that to his birth name was Philip Jack Brooks. So he had three first names, and then he was like, you know what? Fuck it. I'm going with see him punk. Well, that's a random one that you wanna throw down with. We feel like we could actually make that happen. I can't get Lee Corso to fight me or Dicky. Probably gets the impulsive fight. You. Yeah, I the clementine then punk you by the way speaking of which since we're talking about fighting, Mike, let's let's remind everybody did this Friday tomorrow. August twenty.

"Guetta Leesa mattress do it today. Next segment. Famous people we want to fight. So we like to do a little segment on here every once in a while we talk about famous people that hypothetically, we would enjoy fighting. We've done many over the course of the last six months over the course of these seventy five episodes, but it's been a while. So I wanted to do another one in today. Mine might be a little upsetting for some of you, but I wanna fight Dicky. I was just thinking about this. And at first I was going to say Corso Lee Corso who's another elderly sports caster. And this is just making me seem like I'm biased against elderly sportscasters and I sure you that is not the case. I have always found Dickey VDB supremely annoying. Like several steps above Corso who are still again would be down to fight, but I do respect the elderly. You know this about me this whole month is is become themed about calling your grandparents. I love my grandma. If anybody tried to fight her, I would end them I would not be in any way offended by if wanna Dickey vs grandchildren comes in, you know, puts me in a body bag. I deserve it. I said, I wanted to fight your grandpa that's on me, but the guy is so bad to me, a people worship him, love him, college, basketball fans adore him. I can't stand Dicky's commentary. I I would I'm about. I'm like, was about to do an impression of him and I can't bring myself to do it even it is to upsetting my good. You like Dickie, do you? Do you dig this this old man? No, no, he does nothing for me in. I don't know anything about the man. Personally. I'm talking about Dickie v as a commentator on I wanna throw down and I'm not. I wouldn't end the guy. I'm just talking about kicking his ass. Taking him down a peg or two, and letting them know feel about is knowing commentary catchphrases such if you wanna put Dickey in a time machine in rolling back thirty years. I'll fight him thirty years ago. I don't give a fuck. I'm not talking about necessarily having to fight him as the old man, the bag of bones that he is now, but I wanna fight Dicky. I wanna fight him midcourt Sinokorte in the middle of Duke UNC game like an just a legendary college basketball match up. I wanna throw down with digging v and if it's if matters, I would also. Lightly core. So on the set of college game day and force him into retirement for the good of all people. The man is a liability on that set nowadays, the, it's just kind of depressing watching him operate on Saturdays looking, he's old. He's too old to be there. It move on, find somebody else to put on a fucking costume helmet every Saturday to get a to get a laugh. The stick is dead. These to do let go instead back into a position where other dudes can step up. Dickey can't be the face or the voice of college basketball anymore course. Oh, isn't even capable of handling five minutes TV on his own. If he didn't have those other three or four guys sitting there with him..

"Also carrying out a hit in the same episode was fantastic and my favorite episode of the sopranos ever it I, I would hope the most of you who are big fans of the show, can guess just based on the ones I've listed in the one that I haven't my favorite episode ever is pine Barrens. And honestly, for me, it's not really close. It's always been my favorite. It was my favorite. The second I watched it the first time at ended probably watch fifteen times since then it season three episode eleven where Christopher and paulie get lost in the woods due to an assignment that goes horribly awry. Their quotes from this episode like put remote on docking station that I've probably said it thousand times in my life. Is maybe the funniest episode of the show ever. But it's also incredibly tense, and it has all the things you want in an episode of friends. And that's my favorite bar. None pine Barrens season. Three episode eleven, go back and rewatch if you thinking like, I don't even remember that go back and we watch it. Here's my honorable mentions. And these are ones that easily could have fallen anywhere between four and seven. If you made the argument, I could certainly agree to put them in there, but this is the one. These are the ones that went with here. My honorable mentions the blue comet. Fun house from where to attorney, the pilot, which is titled the sopranos. The first episode will always hold a very special place in my heart. The happy wanderer was one that was really tough for me not put on here. I'm more FU was another one that I really wanted to put on here and another toothpick. Those are all my honorable mentions. All of which were tough for me to leave out this list. But these definitive seven or my definitive seven favorite episodes.

"Can judge for yourself, right? The first one on my list coming when the starting number seven is whoever did this it season for episode nine, it's where Tony finds out that Ralph killed his horse intentionally for the insurance money. Burning down the stables or whatever. In Tony finally, snaps and kills Ralph with his bare hands all the while. Christopher's fallen deeper into heroin, uncle, junior's, fallen apart mentally. But that conflict between Tony and Ralph that gets built up is one of the all time, best conflicts in any show or movie I've ever seen that scene in the kitchen is so fucking tents and that all around episode certainly in my top ten, I'm putting it in number seven. Currently my number six soprano home movies it season six episode thirteen. It's when there's a the, it's the weekend retreat upstate with Janice and Bobby to celebrate Tony's birthday. There's the Bobby and Tony drunken fistfight, which is like watching fucking King Kong, fight with the dinosaur. One called villa Godzilla. Thank you. I don't know why I just blanked on that. Those two dudes are so big. The watching them fight in a little room, feels like the house is gonna. Crumble is just an incredible ten CM. We get Bobby having to go do his first hit ever because Tony gives it to him out of spite the morning after they brawl. Everything about this episode that so it's Bobby Tony on that boat musing about whether you even hear it when you get wacked like you probably don't even hear coming. There's just so much good shit in this one episode to great one. One of my all time favorites at number five. I've got made in America and this one is going to be controversial, but the series finale the final episode of the show ever season six episode Twenty-one comes in a number five for me. I loved the entire episode. The ending included. I love the unexpected cut to black. I love don't stop believe in being used. I thought the whole thing unfolded masterfully I'd I people flip the fuck out when this episode ended in were upset. People are still angry to this day or demand an explanation. Listen, you simpleton come up with your own goddamn ending and explanation. That's the point dating give you the ending because they didn't think that was the way that it should end it. You don't know if he's dead or alive or if he got hit or what happened that's on you. If you can't handle that, that your problem. I love the episode. I thought the ending of the series was fucking unbelievably good. I'm never sat on my couch as in all. After an episode of TV show ended his I had as I did that night came up game of thrones just come close on multiple occasions, but the ending the cut, the black on the sopranos was the first time watching TV at least that I'd ever been that shook. Number four. Funhouse it season two episode thirteen. It's the one where Tony gets food poisoning in leads him to eventually accept the big pussy is a rat. Then paulie and Tony take big pussy out on Tony's boat in, you know what happens from there? Number four, three, long term parking season, five episode, twelve. This is the one where Adriana goes down. The setup is insanely tents. Christopher has allegedly tried to commit suicide and is in the hospital. That's the whole ruse. They get going and Silvio drives Adriaan allegedly to go see him in the hospital. The whole setup. Brutal, very hard to watch, but just a masterful, our television and it should be noted. I thought it was super cool how they killed Adriana offscreen out of respect for Dreyer day Matteo the actress who plays her who I saw by the way in person in Los Angeles in some boutique. And at one point, if I don't mention that my mom will slap me. So I'm mentioning it number two. My second favorite episode of the sopranos ever is college season one episode five's the one we're Tony takes his daughter meadow on a tour of colleges in Maine, and when he's on the road, he spots a former member of the mafia turned FBI informant who is in witness protection, inexplicably easy to find for some reason, but Tony's killing this dude with his bare hands. It's fucking awesome. He says, good morning rats, one of the all-time great Tony lines for me, just the the contradiction between. Gene, Tony as a father, taking his daughter to tour colleges, to decide where to go pursue higher education with him..

"Sometimes you kind of have to bite the bullet. I mean, you can, you can, you know, have one good night and then the next morning you can wake up at brunch and just be like, yeah, that chick sucks. And he just made a terrible mistake, but he'll figure it out on his own. I don't know. It seems weird to me, but if that's what you believe in do it, I think that's a good point way too. Often people get caught up in the drama in the fucking. Bullshit. Did surrounds weddings, win in you lose sight of what it's actually about. Like I, I've spoken in a few weddings as a result on that. Mike o. by any means where it's like, that's my thing and I speak it weddings. But like one of my buddies I spoke, I specifically talked about this like remembering why you're all actually there. Is important is because people are deciding to spend the rest of their lives to get it. It's not about you or you know who that girl sucked off in eighth grade or whatever. Like that's it's not what it's about. You need to put your personal bullshit. Aside, enjoy a weekend. That's about other people in about their relationship or whatever. Like way, too many girls get way too caught up on like I didn't get made. I didn't get made the maid of honor. I'm not even bridesmaid or she could have at least put me in the wedding party. It's like, dude, whatever. Who cares? Just go to the fucking wedding and drink the free, booze, and eat the free food and enjoy yourself. Don't be busting up friendships and lifelong relationships. As a result, the silly. But yeah, I been just do do what you think is right. I think most of the time you're gonna end up in a good spot that you can be proud of. I was. I lied. By the way there is one more call here. This. Air off DJ from Tennessee about the sunglasses saying, notice that you didn't even mention putting your son in your shirt, you know where your shirt meet your neck, just thought. All All right. right. Well, the ship, they wouldn't obscure reason to make a phone call. Yeah. Okay. Listen, I'm I'm kind of a psycho about shirt collars when you put your sonny's on your shirt, it stretches out your t-shirt caller and I've lived a lot of my life stretching out, t shirt collars out of. Diety or as a nervous habit or something like I did this all through high school, like stretching out the t shirt collars and I do not like it when my t shirt collars get stretched out now, bugs the fuck outta me. So I don't like hanging things like sunglasses on them. And that's my only reasoning in. I shouldn't even have to explain that in. It's weird is folks. We're just gonna move onto the next segment. Best episodes of the sopranos. This apprentice, which for those of you who somehow aren't aware aired on HBO. It is easily in my top three best TV shows of all time before game of thrones or breaking bad existed. It set squarely as my number one by a long shot. Nothing came really close for a very long fucking time. And I guess I should say if you haven't seen the sopranos skip this segment and immediately move the sopranos to the top of your must watch, TV shows q. cancel, whatever other bullshit show you're watching right now, spin a couple of weeks crushed the whole series of the sopranos. I promise you, you will love it is so fucking good, but I've had lots requests to discuss my favorite episodes or rank the episodes or give a top ten or whatever. I thought about this. A lot in the women to do it is I'm just going to give you my seven favourite all around episodes. And then I'll leave you with some honorable mentions that easily could have been included, but I'll countdown from seven to my favorite, then you.

"You sound like. Bummed out. Even on the phone talking about, it's like, fuck that. Move on. There is no way you should be leading this dude and his mistakes or his refusal to listen to his friends way down on you. Not life is too short if you are if you are correct. And first of all, that should that's a big part of this. You need to be right if you're gonna start throwing out, acusations like that. You can't. This is something you have to know. You don't feel like she shitty or cheating or whatever you need to know. She's shitty person for you to be in the right here. But yet do not. That's just the way works. Sometimes dudes or happens to girls as well happens to girls all the time. You get stuck in a relationship with somebody who's a piece of shit, and you can't see it for some reason and your friends can and you're not willing to accept that and friendships get severed as a result. And hopefully at some point you figure it out and go back and can rectify your friendship. But now you didn't do anything wrong here, but Tony dude as girlfriends trash, IRS wife or whatever. But of course, he doesn't want to hear that. He's gonna have to figure it out on his own next call final call unless you got something you on ads like this is going to say, it's weird that weddings shouldn't destroy friendships or like get people fired up. But sometimes they do. It's weird. I, I had a, I had a a buddy of mine who is like friends with his buddy from like first grade on, and he was like, the best man is wedding. Yeah, but like something happened at the bachelor party and now like they haven't spoken at all since the wedding? No. And like I had another friend. She was in a in a friend's wedding and they haven't spoken a word since because like. Like all of her friends. All of the other girls in the wedding were invited to like the secret.

"I gotta know trash or not. It's been kind of bothered me for a couple of years. It's kind of like your. So buddies got married couple of years ago and. Why total trash cheated on him. She shit and we're good buddies to be in the wedding. And I declined due to the fact that I didn't want to see this. The see him. Mary heard sensually then kind of been lingering over my head number. They don't talk anymore obviously from Benford, but I wanna kinda get your opinion. She's a horrible person. They've been married for like two or three years now. She's cheated on them while they've been married before they're married. She's horrible, horrible person, and he's still better. And I, I don't know like I'm kinda willing to let it go. But yeah, kinda wanna get your take on it. See. What your opinion is shared love show. Fuck dude. I'm sorry. That sounds awful. I've never heard of anyone declining to be in a wedding before that is a bold move that takes big balls. Good for you for standing up. Would you think standing up for what you think is right sometimes you just have to do shit like that. You have to take a stand even if it means possibly severing relationship with your friend. If your boy is fucking up by dating, much less marrying a terrible human being, who is either cheating on them or just is trash in general or whatever, and they're not willing to listen to you. Then sometimes you just have to cut him other Fugger off. That's just the way it goes. And then the the, the idea being hopefully they figured out on their own, realize you're right and come back in apologize. And if not, it's not really your problem, but you certainly did the right thing here. In my opinion, if what you're saying is indeed accurate that she's cheated on him in the past cheat on him since they've been married is just a terrible human being all around all the way around you have nothing to feel bad about dude..

"Like mainly because men are fucking gross and we can't be trusted with with such a powerful tool, we abuse it, but it sets wildly unrealistic expectations for your personal sex life. I don't care what stage of Ballin or pimping you're at? No one has porn sex all of the time. That's just not a fucking thing. Sure. Maybe girlfriend gets smashed on occasion in Throwdown in a weird way. I accept that. That's that's rather normal, but nobody has porn sex all of the time. That's just not how it works. Porn is intended to be a little more violent and aggressive than necessary or the the most people. Normal people are willing to participate in. It you just you set yourself up for failure? They do like even you our caller who goes without a name. You mentioned that your girlfriend could probably watch some point to improve her game in bed in the bedroom. No, it's the opposite. You should probably stop watching porn so you can be more appreciative of your girlfriends, whatever it is she's doing in there. All right. That's what I mean. By setting these unrealistic expectations. You're probably watching porn of a girl given a dude and upside down, blow job while you know feeder in his hair and your girlfriend doesn't do that. So now you judge in her like she's not doing enough. That's just it's not good, is bad is bad. If you can go porn free that probably a better life. I'm not saying I do that. I'm not saying anybody should do that. I'm just saying that's probably a good idea. I don't think a whole lot of good comes from. The easy access. We have the porn in this day and age like the fucking porn ads on almost every website you go to is just porn everywhere. Other movies that could be considered porn. I just setting yourself up failure and you're not working with a hog like that in if you have a porn hog the likelihood that your girlfriend or significant other a wife or whatever is capable of taking said hog like a porn star. It's pretty unlikely you just putting everybody in a bad position here. Porn is also a terrible weird fantasy like it's already not real right, but they throw in all these strange genres that just don't need to exist, but they for some reason do like any dude with a computer can tell you that over the course of two thousand seventeen and eighteen step sibling. Step father, stepmother porn has become an absurd John that is basically dominating the industry. I don't know why I didn't realize so many people. Fetish is step siblings or step parents, but apparently they do. I don't know what happened to like we got sick of watching the pizza guy or the poo boy, the mechanic or the repairman of the plumber, fuck whoever. Now we're on step siblings and step parents. I don't know how that happened, but that's not something you need infiltrating your actual sex life. Don't fuck your step siblings. That's not a good idea. That's gonna get complicated, certainly don't. Fuck your step parents. Maybe just don't watch. Step themed porn. Stick with the mechanic or whatever times we're simpler, ten years ago, porn is completely out of control..

"And so I can go long, Johns, whatever, whatever you wanna call him if it's the same thing, if it's different, I'm excited for this is something that us in Texas. We don't get there often. No, we need a long wait for this to happen, and hopefully it's here soon or a great winter for pajama season. I'm have. You hit the age where like you can have two piece pajamas set like with pants and shirt or whatever. I guess I could. I think what I need is like a nice pajama said. Like, you know, every year, my parents for Christmas, like for twenty years gave me like some matching pajamas. Yeah, that they bought it. I don't know. Our get Stein mart target the cost nine dollars apiece. That's not good enough now. Like I think I could pull it off if I like went to nordstrom's and bought like some dope silk like a dope silk night out. Right. You gotta pull that off, but I, I can no longer just wear like trash know if I'm going to do it, I need. I need to spend some serious cash by some good ship, which I'm thinking about doing for the first time, dominating adult pajamas is a rich man's game a, you got to be able to go actually by the really nice ones in the thing is like I can go cop one bad ass. Nice, expensive set of pajamas from Nordstrom. That's no problem. But that's one set. Yeah, need several. If you're gonna commit to this lifestyle and pull off adult pajamas. I don't have the means to do that yet. I hope to some. Day be there. We do have multiple robes. Oh yeah, I've four. Yeah, the rove is tight. So the rope has taken the place of the pajamas or the long Johns. Like if I'm home and I get in the shower, I just throw in a row for the rest of the evening. Then I get naked sleep in bed. Yeah, that's my routine. Yeah. Use leaving naked is not something I wanted to come out of this with in my head, but that's where we are. Okay, I, I mean, it happened sometimes things happen and you just have to, you know, go on with your life as if they didn't be on the road things actually becoming a bit of a problem. Like I have so many now, especially because people keep sending me robes. That Taylor is annoyed with how many robes are stored in random places in my house. So we prayed chill out on on adding that collection for a little bit of possible. Although I could just bring some to work, I guess. Anyway, I'm prolonged John's whatever next call. Okay. I'm not gonna leave my name because I don't want him to know. I told you this, but one of my good friends day of, you know, tell us like, you know, he hasn't had a loan time. He's scared. He doesn't. He doesn't know what to do. So I suggested that he should just watch porn, screw use it as earning till watch point when my girlfriend was there and she kind of said, no, don't do that. Why would you wanna do that? So I asked my girlfriend said, have you watched foreign before? So they started serve thanking, you know, she could use it to so love the show, guys, trash move that I said to my friend, I don't know, but I still think you could be using learning till you wanted to. Yeah. So what you think. Oh, man. There's a lot to turn pack here first of all. They're good. No, it's you dude, just 'cause you don't give your name, how many other people have had that conversation this recently? Like if they listen, they're gonna know it it. You could just gone with your first name. It's no big deal, but there I'm assuming they're gonna know what you second. What the fuck do you mean he hasn't had sex in a long time? Doesn't know what to do. Is that it's like riding a bike. It's not something you forget entirely like, surely he still knows what to do with his painless. Right. I hope I, I don't know, but I will say this porn as a learning tool, probably not a good idea. Watching porn is not a good way to learn about real sex that actual normal human beings have. Porna- bed for a lot of reasons..

You don't want them to be mixed up with yoga pants by any means you need to wear them like kind of like you're hung over state or when you just really don't care that you're wearing underwear that goes all the way down your ankles. It's probably something that like your alter-ego wear, you know, like I could definitely see. Buller wearing them. All right, love the podcast. Thanks, but everybody knows that Ron bowler is a huge long, Johns guy, bliss, talk about long Johns. I'm not opposed to a attempting to make long Johns more normalized or try to get some type of deal going here, but I'll be straight with you. The handful of times I've worn these in my life. We're all cooled weather situations in in those cold weather situations. Long Johns are fantastic. Like I specifically remember camping when I was like, I don't. I don't know thirteen twelve thirteen fourteen somewhere in there. At enchanted rock in Texas during the winter when it was quite cold for school, we went on something called the thing. It was a c. CFO CEO COO a whatever. It was a trip. We went on a trip every. Six months or something like that at school, the middle school that I went to and it was cold and we need long Johns and I'd never owned long Johns went bought some and then warm on the trip. And I was like, fuck, these are comfortable. And I think people have north, they're much more familiar with them than people down in the south where we're at. But for that reason, I am probably not the best face guy for the Long John movement. I live in Austin, Texas, where it is quite hot most of the year if I saw someone outside wearing long Johns today, I would assume that they were mentally ill and that's not even joke. But another good note we, I feel like long Johns were big for Cowboys like in the wild west, that was very much a vibe, like drink in a bit of coffee with a, you know, dollop of whiskey in it in the morning and your long Johns with your cowboy hat on with your fucking suspenders, like hanging off your shoulders or whatever that's vibe and I'm down with that vibe as I can get behind this. I just don't know of. It's a good idea for me to be the spokesperson or whatever. Like I can do the year. The rope I can do the robe life. I wear road quite often. I don't wear long Johns often enough to be the due to push this forward. But I do dig the concept of pants that don't have anything underneath and make you look like a drunken wild west cowboy. Sure. I was just talking to my girlfriend either this morning or last night about how are air conditioned hasn't worked great. The summer it's finally fixed. It's working great. It's it's amazing, some miracle, but I've been sleeping naked like totally naked just because you have to have to buy. Why put on another layer of clothing when it's a hundred degrees here. All the fucking time rights. Fucking brutal. Yeah, but I just told her was like, I can't wait to get some pajamas geology. Great. Yeah..

"That's why I didn't get one too. I was twenty five. It doesn't feel like you're spending real money. You just swiping. It's pretend it's all make believe is just up in the air. It's numbers on screen. I don't even check my Bank account like honestly, probably four or five days, which is a problem. I think the solution is for me to be annoying cash, only guy. This is probably not actually going to happen, but it is a fascinating concept to me. I got no problem with pain with cash, especially if you don't have to wait for change. That's ideal situation. Most of us are not, you know, financially set enough to just throw down one hundred walk off on a fifty dollar tab or whatever. But if you can do it, you can do it. I got no beef with with paper money, especially paper money that has things written on it like listen to the Rose Bowl in podcast. As I have already stated Mike and you have thoughts on paying cash. Oh yeah. This is dope. Like this is this is an awesome feeling if you've got a twenty and let's say you're tab was fourteen dollars. We both came up with the same number. But yeah, I think fourteen is like the, I mean, even if it's fifteen. There's two things involved here. One you're probably over tip. 'cause if your tab is fourteen, you have a twenty. You can't put the twenty. Let's say you're to sit down restaurants, can't put the twenty in the in the cash on wlov, then wait for the way to go bring you five one's very. And then like take two of them, put them in your pocket. You can't do that. He can, but you're an asshole, right? You just put the twenty down and you walk the fuck out and that is tight. That's a good feeling. It's a great feeling especially at lunch like you don't have to wait for the waiter. You don't have to do anything yet. You've eaten, you're right ago. You go, you put the money down and you're gone. You give it the ghost. And when that comes back and sees that you don't need any change because you're outside of the restaurant and you've left a larger the necessary tip. That's a win win. You making somebody waiters want cash. This is this is great news. I think the fact of the matter is probably something that we refuse to acknowledge as science is that technology, you know, when it comes to currency. Is a problem at restaurants. This isn't a good in other situations. Don't get me wrong. Absolutely credit cards and should are fantastic. Awesome. It's it's nice to not the handle paper money or whatever, but restaurants, it just causing more problems than anything else. There's a lot of waiting involved. We've discussed time and time again, the issues that come with splitting check twenty fucking ways. So your friends can argue about how many Margaritas they had versus you or whatever is all it's all problems. There's nothing worse than a meal being over and you're sitting there in additional ten fifteen minutes because you don't know what your fucking waiter or waitress went with your check when they're tabbing you out. This eliminates that problem altogether. Plus it's pretty much a safe bet. Any power move that fictional old school characters like Frank Lucas, or Don Draper are gonna pool. Those are good power moves. Those are going to make you look. We'll feel cool. You're not gonna go run. Now I'm not saying you should, you know, murder people in cold blood in broad daylight in the street, like Frank Lucas or fuck all your secretaries and start drinking at ten AM everyday. Like Don Draper onto saying they do some things that are tight. There's also one last thing here..

I just had a, I think, the trash or a boss move, really. I mean, you go to restaurant and you pay your Bill and you leave the exact amount of cash that covers both the Bill and the tip. I think it's a boss move. I think this is the Frank Lucas moves. I think this is Don Draper move. I don't think trash at all. Nagano people Bela cash. But if you have these act amount cover both Bill material and the same thing, you just get up. Walk away at the boss, move my Trump the champ almost here. Let's go gang gang. This is Jerry from New York. By the way. Right on Frank, Lucas move. It absolutely is Don Draper, Tony soprano these are these guys pay cash, right? The the other reason is a boss move is you don't have to wait for the card to come back. You just throwing down the exact amount you want and you're bailing now, I don't particularly recall that. I hate it on paying with cash. If I did, I'm changing my mind. Paying cash is not a trash move that all I absolutely agree that it is a power move. 'cause you.
