Thank you actually said thank you. So I agree So yeah, I have to up in my intro because door you and basically what prompted this whole thing can get everyone on the same page was even writing this dope blog that I've been consuming and you and I been working out so we can catch everybody up on all of that but it's kind of this general premise of the the journey we've been going on in Covid of like. Accepting ourselves and like being our best selves. Having this unique experience of actually like really thriving in the middle of complete utter chaos like not being blind to the chaos but. Yeah and that's why I've been bonding with you all year long and it's been really really great even though the world has been a dumpster fire. We've actually hung out more this year than ever before. Yeah. When people have been asking me how I'm doing like I mentioned you I mentioned our group workout. been a very significant part of my of my. Pandemic. So thank you for that. Oh likewise, likewise, you've been a great friend, a great sounding board and it's a pleasure being stuck inside a different place. All my God, it's the. Dream let us unite separately in different houses. Yes. Yes and consciously connect when it's could meet like it makes sense and it's comfortable. Am I? Yes say otherwise no. I. Love It. It's good boundaries and good. Emotional exploration and one of the themes like one of the entries from your blog that is super like I got very move just by the title was when you're talking about learning to like yourself. So I thought that could be a good jumping off point to kind of just dive into all the thoughts and feelings because there have been a lot. And I wanted to like lazy like can we just talk about the instagram because let's go back to the beginning shall we or like? Yes to contextualize who you are because we don't know if people have listened to our first episode together how how did you? What is your elevator pitch for me? Well now I'm a I'm supposed to be a photographer, but I'm stuck in quarantine shoe facetime and I work out a lot and retouched photos. That's. Like that's pretty much will pages right now. My background is in portrait photography in commercial photography, alive entertainment. My spare time was was spent doing nature photography and a lot of legs just outdoor exploration but you'll everything's kind of off the table now in can't do any of that. Like I'm a photographer. Photographer when the world says, I can be a photographer. Just, kind of retouching photos on a large scale and. I've been writing a lot dislike bogging more. So I things like this time has been given. The has a lot to be introspective and just. I had a previous blog that was more for my photography and I had a hard time writing on the blog released continuing to write on there just because I, started that blog in. Reich right. When I'm out of college my early twenties and it was more just trying to me setting myself up to. Seem like I was like, Hey, I'm of Darfur look at my work I. Know My Shit Yeah and. What I look back on it now I read it I'm like Oh. Yeah I'm I'm a coffee little twenty year old. which which makes sense it makes sense. Yeah So just out of this of quarantine, I started a new blog called now starving artists that it was a euro, I sat on for a while because I liked the name which came from this. There was a joke back in the day in right out of college where up to my close friends they would disappear months at a time and then they would never hear from me because I was probably like somewhere in La trying to do some sort of Hustler on a project that I would just ignore my phone's like Oh. Yeah. Milly died but then she'll come back and resume. A few months later so I I bought this year L. because it was a toddler blog at first I like kind of right. I would of write letters to my friends essentially like no I'm not dead. Yeah. I am not a starving artist. This is what I've been doing this to working on but then I eventually scrapped it he he became better staying connected to friends inside and With quarantine and everything I kinda resurrected that you're al again just so that I could reflect and be more introspective on things that I wish. I could I told myself back Beckenham starting and also It's been a good place for me costs like. What I feel what I went through and kind of finding just acceptance with the with the process and the journey and also like Morsel recognizing that things are not necessarily good or bad. They just are led. We project what we want them to be an they say hindsight is twenty twenty but really it's hindsight's twenty twenty because we choose the connect the events of the reasons and make it fit current. Yeah and I think just kind of being okay with the. See the world and not be so judgmental on our souls is a better state of mind via. A read. So it's just it's just kind of been my sounding board.

Minimalism, Tidying Up, & the Most Important Benefit Behind the Less is More Movement
"Minimalism tidying up, and the most important benefit behind the less is more movement by Jay and Heather Harrington of life and Wim Dot. com. New shows on Net flicks New York Times bestselling books donation centers bursting at the seams photos of nearly rolled garments taking over instagram a new verb condo ing entering the lexicon. In case you have noticed minimalism and the tidying-up movement are having a moment less is more has gone mainstream. Is Not that the idea of living with less in the realization of the attendant benefits is a newly discovered concept thousands of years ago. Greek. STOIC philosopher epic Titas came to the conclusion that quote wealth consists not in having great possessions but in having few wants and quote. Is just at today's culture or at least some meaningful corner of it is finally catching on. A journey toward a more minimal life. Our own journey toward a more minimal lifestyle has been marked by fits and starts for years ago we began the shift toward a life motivated less by cumulation and consumption in more by chasing meaning and purpose. We committed to living more minimally because we knew or at least thought that a life with less could lead to more. We I learned about the concept of minimalism. We were intrigued daddy of shedding possessions and living lighter appealed to us. So we started boxing up belongings and dropping them off at charitable thrift stores or placing them at the curve for trash pickup. But after a weekend of shedding, we find ourselves back where we started with a few less things but without making much of a dent in our desire for broader change. Will let us to transformational change and ultimately greater happiness was taking a step back and try to understand the larger purpose and vision we have for our lives. We focused on the end we had in mind and concluded it could be achieved. Do the means of minimizing. minimalism as a means to an end. Consumption requires a trade off and its greatest cost is time the cost of a new coat or pair of shoes isn't measured only dollars and cents busy takes time and effort to acquire those dollars and cents Kazumi Social Media Means giving up moments that could be spent doing something more meaningful. Organizing and reorganizing mounds of stuff is one of the ability to apply mental and physical energy to more productive pursuits. As one of the original minimalist writers. Henry David. Thoreau once. wrote quote. The. Cost of a thing is the amount of what I will call life, which is required to be exchanged for it immediately or in the long run and quote. In other words, those things that are dominating our time and attention are stifling. The one thing we can never replace which is life. All of this is to say that it's easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of minimalism movement and missed the bigger picture, and in this case, the big picture is using minimalism as a means to an end to a more fulfilling intentional and purposeful life rather than treating it as an end in itself. In my personal experience I've found that merely focusing on the tactic of minimalism without a larger purpose in mind makes it hard to stick with it. Chooses Calorie counting diets measured only by the restriction of calories rarely work minimalism quests marked only by the dispossession of objects are hard to sustain. Is Difficult to stay motivated to stick with the means without an end in mind that lights you up inside. Having a larger purpose is what helps you to persevere through challenges and minimizing one's lifestyle in the face of societal pressures to do otherwise certainly qualifies as a challenge. By no means are we minimalists in the purest sense? We still have too much stuff get caught up in up with the Joneses and succumb to temptation despite knowing better. Of, the last several years with a more clearly defined mission in mind every time we have fallen down, we've been able to get up and get back on track happier and ready for what's next. For us being more minimal minded allows us to elevate and prioritize experiences over things. Having less stuff in our home enables us to spend more time outside in nature our minds are less encumbered. So we have more capacity to pursue creative endeavors that while not always financially remunerative bring us great contentment that said is not always easy because the siren song of more is addictive. If you're not careful more stuff more commitments and more mental clutter can easily see back in. If you're trying to focus on less, there's laws of cultural messaging that will suggest to you that your priorities are misplaced and you're missing out on the false promises of largesse. Having, Dude some of the tug and pull of more and less we firmly determined that yes. Bless is more worded by the knowledge born of experienced at the path of a filament lies doing the hard things. With a purpose in mind you can learn to love the process of minimalism even if it's difficult at times. As FYODOR Dostoevsky once wrote quote the mystery of Human Existence lies not just staying alive, but in finding something to live for and MINIMALISM is not a magical cure. All an organized sock drawer doesn't scale beyond fleeting satisfaction of those who have a deeper meaning mind for their lives and want to pursue a mission in life that is challenging and fulfilling falling the foundational principles of minimalism is beneficial first step toward finding lice purpose. Happiness is not guaranteed. It's hard one and the struggle for happiness begins inside with commit to be unrelenting in directing your actions in alignment with your life's purpose.

COVID-19 in Victoria, Australia
"Gratified Friday that's right. Twenty third of Tober pardon the PUN number really pushing towards the grand finale Victoria in terms of stamping out the lost. Stubborn pots of coronavirus is still spreading down there. Yes, and there's clearly still virus around in the northeast corridor. Expected of totally disappeared from there and the pop up clinic, and that's that's the way it's going to go forward US way it's going New South Wales in Swiss going to go forward in Victoria and it's a good thing that they're onto its and jumping onto things quickly. So what we're looking forward to on Sunday from Andrews hopefully is certainly moving forward the restriction relaxations he talked about November I this weekend, but I suspect you might see but more than that in terms of. Restaurants spars that sort of thing where you just might see a speeding up or much more much better defined pathway to those opening up in the near future because Victoria is in pretty good shape we did he gets day battle outbreak in a housing block area in Melbourne is this just like we don't need a look down to get on top of those riot if the public health machine is working better now than it was before the and also if you've got the community onside and they're willing to cooperate because the realized the implications of very much larger knock time. So it's the fuel for the fires. When people are living in densely populated circumstances so it could spread incredibly quickly. So going to get on top to get on top of it quickly, but the capacity to do so is much better and there's less distraction around in Victoria. There's a lot of distraction around when you those terrible outbreaks in addition to the other outbreaks in abattoirs and elsewhere in Victoria there's. A lot going on towards the last time there outbreaks in those densely populated towerblocks these days the capacity is there to focus more and have fewer distractions around because there's so much less virus circulating the virus is circulating you know where it's come from right and so I sort of moving towards our kind of steady state of figuring out our relationship with this virus here. And hopefully, looking at opening up our internal borders at some stage in the near future. WHAT ABOUT INTERNATIONAL BORDERS? There's still lots of Australians overseas. There's. All. Students. WanNa come here. Tourism operators here are really struggling and I'm sure there's some. Really want to go overseas as well. WH- should've reopening paddle clack for Ustralia more broadly. Well, it's a very complicated landscape. You Go to feel for these thirty odd thousand students who went back many of them are quite unwell. Don't be exposed to covid nineteen in the places where they're at and they desperately want to get home to their families and they feel cut off. The problem is that we tend to have a one-size-fits-all to our overseas entries and it should be possible to open up a more strategic way if the politics would allow it and I'm not blaming the politicians here is a difficult situation and you've got to do something about stranded. Australians. Overseas. But a lot of them are in countries which have a high prevalence of SARS covy to like the UK European, the US and places like that. Tends to be where strain school some of them are in Asia and lower prevalence countries. So when you're sending a Qantas plane over to London to pick up people, you're bringing back in the plane presumably, they could take three or four hundred people bringing back hundred and seventy five because the crews got to be protected and the people on board to be protected bear in mind that all of the tens of thousands of who've already. Return the only been three or four hundred infections in. Australia. Yes. We hear about the movie dates true but it's low numbers trouble with that is as we've seen Victoria, you only need one episode of escape from Whole Hotel, it's not the family escaped by the virus did circumstances and you've got a real problem on your hands. So the risk is high, but the risk is particularly high when you're bringing back people from high prevalence countries. You've got a lot of international students in China. You'd have to exclude those in India because that's a high prevalence country but China is a low prevalence country. The should be a way of bringing back international students quite soon from China with judicious testing intensive testing, maybe limited quarantine with intensive testing, and there are ways of doing that but perhaps turning over halls of residence colleges to their limited quarantine that you might. Introduce Singapore certainly New Zealand. Pacific. Islands that you could open up these places quite quickly, and of course, if a stranger stranded there, those would be your first priority. You could probably stand up on this plane over and fill it up particularly wear masks and bring it back with a far more than one hundred, seventy, five on board, and almost a full complement of passengers. Because the risk is so low, so should be possible to a risk adjusted system where for safe areas, you have one way of managing it and from high-risk is another and this probably no alternative if you're living in the UK or Europe and want to get back to coming back on a on a very low load plane. So this is different to travel bubble. Is that it's a bit more like you still have to quarantine, but it's just not does we don't have to have as high stringency because the risk is lower it needs a lot of thought it's not straightforward and the highest priority has to be stranded strings overseas. It's just intolerable that we don't solve that problem and it's a bipartisan shoes not party political but equally. Doing. This, which minimizes the risk from already low-risk countries. The should be a way to manage risk more carefully an a nuanced way depending on where people are coming from. So it's not an open bubble, but it is a lower intensity of corn team. So let's take some questions from audience and what better way to rip through a few to do him as a quickfire Friday round you ready ready to go now. Jeffries asking you mentioned the other day that masks need to be washed at sixty degrees Celsius to make sure the virus free but domestic hot water services limited to fifty degrees. So I wanted to be hand washing his cloth masks in water hated in the kettle or what I think that random mackel worked find that sixty degrees was what did the work but you'll find that detergent in warm water should do it the same way it's just that extended washing cycle I think. So fifty degrees, sixty degrees who knows whether it makes any difference the. Point that Ryan McIntosh was making here is a quick rinse in the hand basin. There's not enough specimens a farmer and wants to know why if humans contracted card from animals? Why are the mammals supposedly don't get the virus and has anyone bothered to test shaped cattle pigs and so on record low testing of animals corona there's a lot of coronavirus infection in animals. Pigs get a similar co diseased covid nineteen, and in fact, there is a pig vaccine as far as I'm aware to a respiratory syndrome similar to covid nineteen, but it's not SARS coffee to. are lower than will species have been tested and not find to carry this dogs can be infected but don't seem to retain the virus very well whereas cat. stew. Agricultural, animals don't seem to be a big problem to corona virus is prevalent in lots of different species. This person's flying to dial in from CD next week's visit family added about it. What precautions should they take for the flight? Well, I think for any flight my view is that you should wear a mask threat flight and just be careful about hygiene and Qatar saves on Colonel Cast a few days ago when you flush the toilet. Religious so you don't have an erase allies. And I think this question is asking about sewage testing how can test for the virus with all those millions of latest of water and other chemicals and just take a small test tube and still be able to identify the virus Yup it's mind boggling but they're able to genetically to actually look for the fragments of the virus I think that this is done with antibodies that pickup the virus, and then lie top when they've picked up the. Joys a big fan of Corona cast and her son is a paramedic in London and has had a very mild case of covid nineteen. But she's heard recently that everyone who gets five nineteen has long lasting effects in the front of their brain. Is this true please cleared up her because she's worried you can stop worrying Joe it's far from through a percentage of people do get long-term. Effects. And it's really not known yet what the percentage is, but it's not the of people and one more question Norman Magin one infectious person walks into a room with ten others spends a considerable amount of time seven, get the virus and three. Why don't those three becoming victim? Is it because I got better immune systems probably just the play of chance, but it could be that you've got some genetic. To the virus always somebody in society with a new virus, who's got genetic resistance to that virus by the play of chance, these are mysteries to which we don't know could be that they just didn't inhale quite as many viral particles as others who knows it is a difficult question hasn't indeed uses it. Just another one of the many mysteries that still surround covid nineteen

The Doctor's Wife
"So it seems to people that knew her della Dante Satorius spent her entire life using and abusing every man who crossed her path. Falling in love with her was like falling into a spider's Web. Now. This guy was lonely and Della didn't come with a warning label said Doctor Daryl Satorius. Allowed himself to be tangled into that web very quickly. Oh, he jumped right in both feet feet first as they say when they got married in nineteen ninety five. He had no idea none who wife really was yes, and I would think is a wealthy man. You do a background check, but he did find her a dating service. So maybe he trusted them and they let him down. But you know many people recognized that something was off about her. She was the pretty second wife of the doctor but there was obviously something really fake they're. Even, her name was a fake because Dante had been born della. She'd been married at least four times before and all of her previous relationships had ended badly, put it mildly some in some very hateful violence and a lot of property destruction. Those mother name is And she recognizes something was different about della since her early childhood. Oga had met Dallas Father Jim when he was stationed in Liverpool England, he was a soldier who's originally from Kentucky. Jim and August. Fell in love and married as soon as they got back to the United States. They moved into Jim's hometown of OCSAR.

Is herd immunity working in India?
"Now while many governments are urging people to keep a safe distance to prevent a further mushrooming of covid nineteen some scientists, what's the best way to tackle the virus is by grouping together and through herd immunity in India where the devastating pandemic is hit particularly hard. There's been a noticeable fall in the infection rate in certain densely populated areas Ellen Gainsford reports. By Slam with shanks stacked one on top of the other social distancing is impossible. But the number of deaths from the corona virus who've been relatively low. Officially, there have been a few thousand. After a spike in May figures have stabilized and then dropped the opposite trend to the rest of the country. The same pattern is repeated in other slums in New Delhi. Data name the beginning I was scared. We will stay and live with the virus Amazon. Areas Studies show nearly sixty percent of the population have developed antibodies. Could this mean collective immunity Why exactly but I feel like we have the power to fight this illness. There's a debate between specialists about what the findings mean. Many. Doctors say India is too large and too highly populated for collective immunity to work. Joking. If you're talking about her immunity, you're you're expecting one million people in tonight. Convince. US who should not? So, there is no concept of community at this moment. Anytime. But this epidemiologist believes that what the data shoes happening one zero surveillance data data to the data of declines in cases being reported from the area. The two together that slightly thirty minute. This is what could be the picture in large parts of India wants the virus spreads further and further.
Seattle movie theaters set to open Friday - as a test run
"Tomorrow. You might actually get to be At the movies. AMC Theaters, plans to reopen 14 locations in Washington state as of tomorrow. That is amazing. Now. Unfortunately for you kiddos out there. I don't think there are any Children's movies out. I think they're all R rated. They're so mad at me all the time. Going to be open tomorrow in elder Would elder with older would have you ever under Washington before that was just quickly looking at the list. Of all the places that are open Elder would. I didn't mean that the first one older would sure it's going to be an elder would keen The Cascadia Mall. Oh, this one. I know Pacific place in Seattle and the Lake Wide mall. You're so cultured. Yeah Job, Jason. I speak words so all their wood can't Cascade Mall, Pacific Place Lakewood are among the places that are supposed to be open. As of tomorrow. This is going to be essentially a test for AMC to see whether or not even if they open, people will in fact, show up. And they say after that test, though, look at the data and if it gives it if it was a good enough Open a good enough launch. They will then open 500 more theaters all across the country. Now I'm looking right now at the AMC Pacific place just to see Which movies are out? None of these are their new wish, I suppose, 10 it is still in theaters that I want to see the broken Hearts Gallery kind of looks all right. The new mutants I heard was the worst movie ever made. I am desperate to go to a movie. But I don't know if I want to go yet because I think a lot of people are desperate to go back to the movies, including people who are probably sick right now and coughing and they're all like, I don't care. I'm a go because why would I be nervous about going? To a movie theater right now. Do you remember my traumatic experience with an illness with the swine flu? I'm certain I got the swine flu from specifically AMC Pacific place in Seattle because after I went to a movie I want to say it was like two days later, I got the swine flu. It's kind of rough to bounce back from right. And so I'm a little bit nervous now. I don't know if the bad luck would follow me if I went to The elder would Cascadia Mul to see a movie? But I'm a little nervous. And would it really be worth it for any of these movies? I mean, you send it If the new Batman was coming out with Robert Pattinson, I would understand. Yeah, sit next to somebody who is tested positive for that. But I have a good news. You're not sitting directly next to people. There are Going to be spaces in between all of the seats with the exception. Of course, If you're going with your own family, then you can sit together. They are going to have limited capacity. They're going to do the cleanings in between each showing. Which I hope is better than the cleanings they normally do between each showing because I don't think I've ever been to a theater in which my shoes didn't stick to the bottom of the floor due to spilled soda. That's on purpose. That's part of the experience that you can't leave that. Yeah, they probably spray it with cola. Right in between showings except Mom thing. That's what base that will kill. The Koven is just a spray bottle of cola Regal ad just said that they're temporarily closing all of their locations in the country. I do, too, you know, mandates in certain states and cities like New York, where you can actually go to the theaters, but also because there's just not a lot of Movies out right now, Like the only new movie from last week was the war with Grandpa. Don't see That sounds awful. Go see tenant. I'll see you there.

Like there's none. 2012. 2012 from the movie. It was horrible. 1917 was good over there, You know, One of my favorite two hearts is for two couples. The future unfolds in different decades and different places, but a hidden connection will bring them together. In a way no one could have predicted That title predicted their gods. The title one though that was the synopsis tied up titles to heart, So I thought that was the entire like it was 22 hearts, Colon and then all of that, that you just read. I'd be very impressed that I'm going to see two hearts at the elder would mail Pull up that GPS you're going to need directions to Elder would

I'm Scared to Invest in Real Estate in a College Town Right Now
"Anthony is in Kansas City High Anthony. Welcome to the Dave. Ramsey show. Hi doing great. How can I help? I have about a half million dollars in my checking account and I have had it in there for a couple of years I'm trying to figure out exactly what to do with it. My plan was to use it for real estate. But the real estate market got me a little spooked right now while or. we live in a college shirt close to a college town and. the market there they've built so many brand new complexes in the last. Ten Years Nobody's going to college. Okay. I'm with you exactly the enrollment rates are going down you know so I'm a little bit Leery of that. So what town are you at all? I'm Manhattan. Kansas Yeah, okay All right yes. You're far enough away from Kansas City that you're probably not investing in. Kansas City. Correct okay, Anthony holder you. I'm forty five. Okay. You've done a great job. Yeah. Are you planning to stay Manhattan. That depends don't necessarily need to have a hobby farm. I'm I'm an electrical contractor by trade. But my my real estate holdings I have a couple of rental properties to, but I have about a million and a half in real estate that's all paid for. about one, hundred, thousand in cash five, hundred, thousand in my checking. about four, hundred, thousand other assets like. Crack loaders tractors. You're. A. Stud. Done. So proud of you. It's got to feel great man really did it and I'm assuming you did all this start assuming you to all the starting from nothing. For nothing inherited nothing way to go well, here's what I would do if I, woke up in your shoes and I find myself in similar situations from time to time. I'm between real estate deals and I need access to the cash when I get ready to do the next real estate deal. That's where I find myself. It's where you find yourself because you're not going to drop that half million in Manhattan you've made that decision. I'm not going to recommend if you've listened to me for more twenty minutes, you know this to be a long distance landlord. and. So what I'm GonNa end up doing is just parking this probably in like an S. and P. Five hundred. you know a no load fund there's no commissions and just ride the market with it a little bit while I'm waiting to decide what I'm GONNA do. and. One of two things will happen. One of three things will happen. You decide to stay in Manhattan and the market get soft as you predict. So you will not pull that money out in buying Manhattan. So you're probably going to turn and invest in some other vehicle for probably some mutual fund or something number. Two thing that could happen as you move and you're living in whatever Kansas City and you got a great market to invest in. Then, you pull the money out and you invest it then what was the third thing that could happen. The third thing could happen would be Manhattan back the college market firms back up and you feel good about investing in Manhattan again, pull the money out there s and P and invest go so your parking it until something else moves another variable moves in the situation. But checking accounts not okay. Yeah. I realize that it's been but you know how it is Kinda fly. And I'm sure your bank is reaching out blowing up your phone with all their ideas and thoughts. Real helpful now. Drysdale's on the line. There's a saw ball mister guides deals on the line. There's a fourth option you may begin to look at something that gets to be on sale where you've got someone that has to sell or is looking to sell, and now you've put yourself in a situation to start to have some conversations about potentially buying that that could happen as the market. In Manhattan that's right. that somebody couldn't quite survived the turn and it's making an upward turn and you're comfortable with it that could result in a really good for a great deal. Yeah. That's that's a very, very good point. Dr. John Loney is. One of three, thirty, two degrees he's got he's got more degrees than a thermometer is in higher. Ed. And he's talked about with you and I and a bunch of US behind the scenes and even some what on the air The to the extent that. Because of the student loan debacle and because covert scenario by home, they realized These colleges are trying to charge just as much sitting at home I'm not getting like the college experience. I don't see any ivy on the walls here at my house. So to those two things hitting together are accelerating p the demand for college degrees. On campus living college degrees, they're accelerating that demand dropping right been dropping. Student loan the covert thing is pushed it over the edge. So, we are seeing some things like he's describing a college town like Manhattan, which is what Kansas State. Of Kansas, state and So you know we're seeing so many smaller towns where the economy's driven by resoluteness. Affecting their economies it really is a lot of those around America.

It has been almost thirty years since I've been back here. But everything seems to be just the way it was when I left it. A few more roads new community building. The PS even went so far as to take away the pool slides. Sissies. But all in all the same story. A lifetime away installing security systems in the city. Just, come back to the same place. And things couldn't be more the same. Small, are always more difficult now. Less people to drown out. The noise. But yet more people to worry over things.

I would want a dilapidated old thing. She thought it would bring me fond memories. Maybe it was the only thing she had left in the end. Maybe. She only thing she had left in the end. Dorothy. Maybe you're onto something. I've scattered out all the neighborhoods already. Being? Vacation? Community for? Most. People. Some roads were completely empty. Others were completely lit up.

Amid Pandemic, Airlines Forge a New Survival Metric: Daily Cash Burn
"Tomorrow and the days to follow. We'll bring a peek inside the books of the Big Airlines Delta United American and southwest will report earnings and there's a phrase you will undoubtedly here around as they detail how they are getting through the pandemic cash burn. And among the many questions we have is how long can you burn cash when there is so very little of it coming in we as marketplace's into your to explain. A company's cash burn rate measures how quickly IT spending its financial reserves the International Air Transport Association says. Airlines will burn through more than seventy seven, billion dollars during the second half of this year Brian Pierces that group chief economist most companies particularly, airlines just don't have revenues coming in, but they can't get rid of all of their cost at the moment. So they are running down there cash balances. In the bank they opening cash at a rate of many millions of day last quarter. Delta. Reported a daily burn rate of twenty, seven million dollars but I just found out that airlines calculate cash burn differently. Yeah. That was news to me as well. Read Snyder runs the airline industry blog cranky flier as figured casper and it's okay we had this much cash. Now we have this much cash but no. They're all kinds of little carve-outs in in differences between the airlines whether an airline includes principal payments or debt service payments in their cash burn will tell a different story to investors but no matter how the numbers calculated unrelenting cash burn means more debt former airline executive and industry analyst Robert Man puts it this way you go to the red to place by a bunch of furniture and burden. Slough to pay for it ultimately, but you brought it expenses don't go away just because people aren't flying but jack her shoe follows distress businesses for SNP global market intelligence says the airlines are in better shape than they're letting on. They've got almost uniformly more than a year and some cases more than two years of running room with cash as it currently stands in the balance sheet before they end up in trouble because before the pandemic hit, the industry was making enough cash to burn.
The Latest On municipal Elections
"A little bit about municipal elections of course in Brazil What what what's that? Give us give us the the big picture festival well, I voted a big deal because every single one of five, thousand, five, hundred. Seventy Brazilian cities will be voting for mayors and for councillors as well. So it's a big election, and of course, it's always as it happens to other countries it's a preview of the two, thousand, twenty, two presidential elections. So be interesting to see what's going to be the role of both sonar because of the beginning just a few months ago said, he's not going to get involved but now we're seeing that he's supporting a few of the candidates, but the thing is, of course, there's You know there's there's thirty or forty percent of the electorate that you know would vote for Bush scenario candidate but he's extremely toxic as well. the order. The same amount of number would never vote for a candidate supported by both sonar. Again I think it's going to be a very tough divisive election and again, Workers Party used to be such a strong political party Brazilian losing the appeal order. centre-left parties are starting to kind of gain more traction instead of the workers spiders. So that's an interesting thing about this election as well, and what do the polls say I mean just ready to? An association whether perceived or real with both narrow can be a boost or it can be a problem depending on where in the political spectrum you are. Do we know what the polls tell us and there's another interesting things on there in terms of the sorts of characters who are standing for action a big increase in number of military personnel. Explain also that we've talked about before absolutely and again this increasing military personnel of course, it comes more from the right-wing part but even the left they have some candidates and even in their names when people are voting is like major tone. Exactly. Or you know they they actually add they're tied to pseudo name. So people know exactly what they used to do but you know I was talking about another classic example here's some Paul the first South who someone is, is a hat on the polls he's supported by scenario is a TV presenters will kind of a populist even though he's ahead I'm not sure if he's actually going to win because there's he has a vast number of people that will never vote for him just because of his association with both Sonar, and in Rio you know we're loosing the blue. Shoe, quite a lot about this. Myself Valleys the current mayor and a former gospel singer as well. Again, he only have like forty percent of the polls. He didn't do a very good administration from. What I hear from people living there as well but he's the candidates have been supported by both sonar. I wonder if we're that can tell us a bit more house the reaction. Rio above that listen to I was going to bring you speak about Venezuela in a second but just on this point about it's both scenario I mean is he he sort of overshadow everything? Is it one of those things being Vanessa mentioned if we look at Rio these races, they're also have proxies for people's view about both in our that's certainly what it seems like sometimes looking from the outside. Yes. But also particularly that the main issue in. The minute always been it's totally economic, right so aside from all these elections and everything, it's really which parties are willing to offer some sort of boost to to the people living there and what we have. She had underneath the Bulls Nar administration in recent months, which allows cariocas from, which is, of course, this this payout to to the most deprived in the population, which is and so will very much depend on whether that sort of extended over the next few months to tidy through the election or not I. Think I think economic issue is a big thing. Here we go. There's some interesting aspects. Of this election as well so far we had the record number of candidates thirty, four percent of all the candidates are women. That's a record that doesn't mean that they will be elected sometimes they come from the smaller political parties as well, and for the first time we have candidates, they are either black or mixed race then white, that's a that's a first So even though we are under the administration that probably don't care that much about quotas or this kind of things but you know you see a little bit of change in Brazil perhaps the candidates are beginning to start to look like. The population in general. So that's an interesting aspect of this election and certainly something to welcome just briefly Fernando. Last point on. This is one of these areas where it would be a mistake to read too much into what happens in the municipal elections where we look ahead to the next general election or actually is quite a good indicator of which way the political winds on a national level also blowing I think we should definitely pay attention to this election in two thousand sixteen. We saw the rise of the right and kind of you could kind of understand Wassenaar was elected two years after. Okay interesting. Stuff listen. Let's cross back to you and I I mentioned Venezuela let's talk about this. You were living there I think some some years ago, but there's this really complex interesting legal battle that also comes right here to to London town as well. Tell us a bit more about this. Yes. So don't remind listeners the Maduro government launched legal action against the Bank of England earlier this year to try and force the Bank to release gold that the country has stored in the bank sports and England's quartered appeal decision that was made earlier this week on Monday isn't as definitive, some of the headlines had suggested. And they're sort of several layers to this. But essentially, the appeals court overturned a judgment which said that the UK had recognized opposition leader one guy do as Venezuela's rightful president. So in other words that local ruling is a victory for Maduro essentially sidelining any perceived power that Guido had as Venezuela's rightful president but Monday's decision actually means that this whole I mean it's a lot of money is a one billion. Dollars equivalent in gold. It will go back to the High Court in England and it will be up to a higher court to determine more definitively which of these two rival leaders is in charge in Venezuela and therefore he has control over the shiny gold bars which obviously tend to grab the column inches but I guess into this is a case where. This case speaks to a bigger picture dozen and it does also reflect this ongoing, very divisive political battle in in. Caracas. Can you just tell us what is the latest there what? What's the situation? Is it one of these things where again Everything that flows politically flows out of the economic strife, the country still during. Quite right I mean reading the actual ruling it disorders show unpick really the mess that Venezuela and the international community has got itself into with this to President Saga that's been going on since January twenty nineteen and the upstate new nothing the people who've been living there I mean in abject poverty fleeing the country in the millions and that has no proper healthcare system i. Mean when I was living back in twenty seventeen lesson learned today to do with this highly contagious virus. So the situation is critical as I say, having having an uncleared dramatic stance, own issues like the Golden, the Bank of England, which mode no doubt will go on for months only wasn't the the situation inside the country and creates stalemate when nothing moves on or improves. Tricky Times still ahead listen to it was good to hear from you, and if you're here in studio thank you. That's Markle's if you had noticed and Lucinda Elliott
Does Talking To Plants Help Them Grow?
"All Right Emily Kwong you are here for another microwave the. Short. Little episodes where we read some listener mail at the end. And we're talking about what science has to say and not say about plant bioacoustics and this question that I can't believe I'm asking which is does talking to plants impact their growth. It is probably the most common question I get from the public. This is Heidi apple professor of Environmental Sciences at the University of Toledo. And just to get this out of the way, there is no conclusive scientific proof. The talking to your plans helps them grow. All. Right. Every episode done Boo Boo Boo we. Hold the phone if I? It's not that simple because Heidi is one of the few people who has studied plant response to sound and she considers plants to be sentient beings. They have a sense of vision sight smell. And taste they have hearing. Scientists disagree about what language to use here I mean our plants sentient. They don't have brains. You know those kinds of questions but scientists have found evidence that plants can detect sound all life has some form of McConnell reception. Mechanical reception meaning, they can sense stimuli from their environment like touch pressure and vibration. We humans have pressure receptors on our skin and it turns out that plants can sense pressure to this is this is very cool. I'm getting into this now. Yeah. Through these special proteins called mechanical receptors that can send a signal that sets off a chain of events telling the plant, how to respond so like if a bug lands on them or something yes, and the plant will perhaps release chemical to defend itself plant panic. That's right. So these Magana receptors are really important for telling the plant what's up in its environment and plant scientists think these McKenna receptors may play a role in helping plants, pick up vibrations including the vibrations caused by sound. You know sound waves we've known for a long time that plants can respond to single tones or even music. And they can respond by growing a little differently or their seeds may germinate at a different rate. But we never understood why they would do this. Why would they have this capability and that's where my work with collaborator Rex Co crowd at the University of Missouri comes in. So few years ago. Heidi Rex put together a little study asking if a plant will respond to vibrations in their environment and the vibration they chose to test was caused by a Caterpillar shoeing. What an adorable experiment munch up the leaves of the plant, specifically a mouse ear cress which Heidi had growing in the lab. and. These vibrations are super subtle. The the leaf sometimes moving like one ten thousand of an inch as the Caterpillar bites down. Brexit Heidi played the vibration, the vibration of the nominee caterpillar right back to other crush plants who had not been munched on at all, and then expose those same plants to real. Caterpillars. And measured their chemical response and the plants that had heard the recording beforehand produced more insect defense chemicals Oh so like playing the sound before the real caterpillar primed the plants. Yeah. This experiment show that plants pre exposed to the sound of Human Caterpillar produced a different response more plant panic if you will. Yes I will which suggested you know that plants these plants are sensitive to the sounds of this Predator the Caterpillar and then they tested other vibrations on the plant wind other insect eating noises that were not as threatening and when you know the plants did not respond like chemically they didn't respond. Correct. So okay. So does that mean they have? For lack of a better term selective hearing more like selective responding. Okay. Plants do respond to sound but only to sounds they've evolved to respond to if that makes sense. In, this case a Caterpillar Chewing Gotcha. Okay. So Caterpillar chewing. Yes. But what about a human voice? Well, that hasn't been comprehensively tested. Okay and Heidi thinks it's not likely a plant will be experiencing. No as in the sense of wind or a bird or a singing and Tamala gist. You, but they will they will be tuned to only the things that are important to them. Right, and and we don't know if one of those things is a human voice. We also don't know the. Of what they detect and we don't know if they'd have a reason to respond. So should you talk to your plants? Sure. Why not is it going to help them grow better your voice alone? No I don't think it's going to however. If you connect emotionally with your plant, better because you're talking with them, that means you're probably going to take better care of it, and therefore we're talking to your plants indirectly could

Around the world and across the globe where there's just so much need in and you wonder sometimes if you're hitting the rock enough in the same spot in is your. Is Your rock ripple that you throw in the across the pond enough. Then you're member Joe Joe and then you remember people that come back to you full circle and say you know what I? You did this and this impacted me in this way or think about the story of the of the starfish that always wash up on the shore and there was the old man and I know we've all heard the story that kept throwing the starfish back into the ocean, and then like you know it's pointless. There's millions of them. On the on the shoreline, how you ever GonNa get this all of these taking care and how you GonNa hit each one and he just his comment was one of the time.

And always requiring us to do is out of our relationships with him in the relationship we have with others just keep hitting that one because that one affects another one, another one, another one, and so it's the power of one.

Garrett that that is just that's just tracy in her amazing this so So, let's go back to you for a second in in in take the ministry out for just a fast second. Do you think it's just kind of odd and I'm using that word purposely fully Do you.

"And we speak with them and we see them when we talk with them and we remember their name. And there's a transformation that happens between the child that's receiving the gift. and. The person that's washing feet and I guarantee you more times than not as happy as a child is you're absolutely right when you mentioned at the beginning that there's a sense of pride you know when you went to school and you got your. Shoes and your new backpack and school supplies on a nice new outfit on. You know you wore your best outfits that first week in you stage them out so that you look the best with your new stuff. And there's a pride and having something that somebody else didn't have or that you've never had before. And there's a pride in knowing someone's name and being able to say I see you more importantly. God sees you and he's danger you. So regardless of what? Crap for lack of a better way, you might have to go through this journey God knows your name. He knows the destiny has because he's already purpose it for your life, and so we get to have that mutual transformation exchange in that. Three to five minutes of washing that child or that recipients feet. That's hardaway are name Samaritans feed and why it's important to us because we are all. Called to serve. And the best way to serve is. Tumble yourself and find people better than yours, and then you think of yourself and serve them with love and with dignity not is a handout but a hand up to say you know what God traded you. He graded me we all bleed the same who never listened to that song by Madisha right now it's a great time to listen to it because guess what we are all created in his image and we are all wonderfully fearfully made.
