What Are The World's Biggest, Baddest Jigsaw Puzzles?
"Even before. It became a popular way to while away the hours days and weeks during isolation putting together. Jigsaw Puzzles was a favourite family activity. But did you know that? Jigsaw Puzzles have their origin in education. Sir John Spills Berry an English engraver and map maker in the mid. Seventeen hundred is credited with creating the first jigsaw puzzle in seventeen seventy six by attaching a map of the world to a piece of wood then cutting the country's out teachers used the maps to teach geography to their students and a recreational activity was born spills berry would hardly recognize his creation today in the early part of the twentieth century. Jigsaw Puzzles were used as marketing tools often given away or sold for mere pennies today companies. Still use puzzles for creative marketing. Take Kodak for instance. It's selling what it. Claims is the quote world largest jigsaw puzzle. We HAVE TO ADMIT. This thing is pretty huge. The fifty one thousand three hundred piece puzzle features twenty-seven injuries from around the world and when completed measures twenty eight point five feet by six point. Two five feet. That's eight point six meters by one point nine meters and this beast costs more than four hundred dollars but all due respect to the Kodak Jigsaw puzzle. The world's largest jigsaw puzzle by surface area. According to Guinness World Records was put together in Dubai in July of twenty eighteen. The puzzle was an honor of the year of Ziyad a year long tribute to the founding father of the United Arab Emirates. The late Shahid there are more than twelve thousand pieces in the puzzle which was an image of Zayed the official record size measured sixty five thousand nine hundred and five point one seven square feet which is six thousand one hundred twenty two point six eight square meters putting together. Jigsaw puzzles is a Greek group activity but one thousand six hundred students of the University of Economics Ad Hoc Human City in Vietnam took it to the next level. When they completed the jigsaw puzzle with the most pieces on record five hundred fifty one thousand two hundred and thirty two to be exact when it was finished the puzzle measured just over. Forty eight by seventy six feet about fourteen by twenty three meters. It took the students seventeen hours to create the massive puzzle which featured a lotus flower with six petals. But what about the hardest jigsaw puzzle? Ever it contains only nine pieces and it's called the puzzle nine it was designed by Asaka. It includes a small board. The nine pieces include right angles and curved edges. That fit together in several combinations. Think Tetris but way harder. The challenge is getting the last piece to fit. It's nearly impossible to fit all the pieces on the board. It took Chris Ramsey a magician video creator and master puzzle or two hours nine minutes to solve the ice nine and by his own description. He was completely exhausted. By the end of the experience. You Sokha created another equally. Difficult puzzle called the Jigsaw Puzzle. Twenty nine the challenge here is to fit twenty nine pieces into a five by five inch. That's twelve by twelve centimeter trae. It comes with five corner pieces. Just let that sink in. Then there's the largest hand cut wooden jigsaw puzzle Guinness record held by Dave Edmunds England. Who created a forty thousand seven hundred sixty three piece puzzle celebrating the Queen's Diamond Jubilee the puzzle which featured thirty-three Images of Jubilee celebrations was twenty by eight feet? That's six by two and a half meters. When completed though it collapsed soon after Evans completed it took him and force. More than sixteen days to rebuild the puzzle and move at Sandringham where it went on display and was confirmed as the Guinness World record holder. We spoke by email with Caitlin vesper records manager with Guinness World Records North America. She said one of the main criteria for all Guinness World Records titles is that they must be breakable. Every record titled S- monitored is open to being challenged which allows for all kinds of record breaking opportunities all over the world. The Guinness record for most Jigsaw puzzle pieces tattooed on the human body belongs to the aptly named enigma. Sometimes known as Paul Laurence. Who'S A sideshow performer? Actor musician originally from Seattle in two thousand eleven enigmas set the record for having two thousand one hundred twenty three puzzle pieces tattooed on his body from head to toe in no word on whether anyone comes close to second but many puzzle records are held by companies such as the record for the largest spherical jigsaw puzzle. It measured fifteen point seven feet. That's four point. Seven seven meters in circumference and it was made by unit industrial limited in Hong Kong and featured scene from Winnie the Pooh vesper said brands and businesses. Come to US looking to harness the power of record-breaking to commemorate anniversaries and celebrations or to highlight the launch of a new product. Whole communities can come together to attempt to record to a like in March of two thousand nineteen when more than one thousand seven hundred people formed the largest human jigsaw puzzle piece on record a I. The record raised awareness for autism spectrum disorder. The puzzle pieces the symbol for the autismspeaks organization. Vesper explained each Guinness World. Records title has a set of guidelines. That must be followed. The record for the largest human jigsaw puzzle piece is a great example to highlight. This is considered one of our largest human image categories and the idea is to have a group of people gathered together to form a recognizable image. We define a jigsaw puzzle piece as an oddly shaped interlocking and Tessa leading piece designed to be part of a larger picture. The human image to be created would need to be instantly recognizable as a puzzle piece and not an entire puzzle. This record title can be broken if another group creates same image with a larger group of people. Anybody up for the challenge.

Hospitals get paid more if patients listed as COVID-19
"If if if an emergency room or hospital writes down that the patient had cove it when they died they give thirteen thousand dollar check from the feds and they put him on a ventilator they get thirty nine thousand dollars is that possible what those are for our hospital admissions okay well yes if they have coal bed that's what the Medicare will pay the hospital for taking care of that patient that Roger but it seems to incentivize maybes putting somebody on a ventilator hi monetarily I don't I don't I don't know how that vibes with you know what the nurses doctors and nurses think are right well you know the thing is that some doctor had determined that run and made that diagnosis but basically it's it's a lot of work to take care of these patients the amount of money the Medicare things it takes to take care of them by the probably cause more than alternately yeah probably does to be honest yeah but what they didn't want to have happen is that hospitals were incentivized not to take care of these patients that have all right you know the idea is that there's there's there's a cell reimbursement for taking care of them all right I don't think that that's the problem what's you know what's going on out there in fact if you look missions are down and and ICU admissions are down you know death rates were down they went up on simple think of the miles for some reason I'm not sure why but now they're down again today right so we are doing better in terms of how the virus is behaving in California good that's excellent and there's so many numbers to go over right now like I can't believe that New York is still not getting a handle on this where everybody else you know seems to be you know grasping at how to do this sh well New York having a problem with death and that if you look at their debts their desks are in nursing homes right now they made a huge mistake early on and the and the mistake was that they said that any patient with code that had to be accepted back into the nursing home they came from now that that that was a huge disaster because what they did is they needed all their nursing homes with coded patient while and unfortunately a nursing home generally houses the exact kind of person who is at great risk sure I'm dying from Kobe they're old and they and they have comorbid diseases that's why they're in a nursing home and boy it's been a disaster for them I mean who would have made that decision now well I think the governor did oh my god actually I think he said that yeah I think he said what yeah wasn't aware that somebody in his administration made that decision right but how is that possible doctor where everybody else and every other city made the opposite decision well again they weren't following basic science and and basic scientific principles the scientific principles in a pandemic are you isolate the sec right and for some reason we got this idea that we were going to isolate the sick and the well and when you do that you don't have any place to put the sec right turns out that they didn't have places to put the check they they have an empty field hospital they had an empty ship they had you know even their own I think Jared center had dad's dad's available so people will look at this over time she cannot say Gee we could handle this differently and hopefully we will learn because colder this is with us it's going one thing the lockdown did walk down pretty much guaranteed it did it save lives and it prevented the Sir John our hospitals but it also prevented anytime a whole herd immunity so cold it will be with us for quite a while it'll it'll kinda smolder along right and you know this concept of a second wave will happen and hopefully by the time that happens we will be learned a lot so we're not going to repeat what happened in New

Impact of COVID-19 on the Cosmetic Industry
"Numbers are starting to roll in about what's happening to the beauty industry right now. According to NPD prestige clean beauty is up. Eleven percent this year despite the rest of beauty sales and this prestige beauty being down fourteen percent and I think we might have talked about this before but I expect to see more of this.

Cbd sales are expected to spike during the pandemic according to a survey by consumer insights for bright field group forty percent of CD consumers expect to intensify the frequency of their CBD usage. I'm still confused on this because for me when I take. Cbd Internally it does nothing for my anxiety or my sleep levels as we know.

Hacking Your Leadership
Do you know how to coach?
"All right for this week's episode. I WanNa Talk About Coaching No. I didn't talk telling your employees what to do. I said I'm talking about coaching. That's right they aren't the same thing although to me it is out. There think they are. If your idea of good. Coaching is advice oriented. Meaning use phrases. Like I do this or try this instead. You're definitely teaching. And depending on the person in your relationship with them. It might actually yield some results but real coaching leads employees and peers to figure out their own solutions rather than offering solutions for them. Sir John Whitmore Renown Executive Coach and author wrote in his book. Coaching for performance that Real coaching unlocks a person's potential to maximize their own performance. It helps them learn rather than teaching them. Which is what we all want anyway to get where we need to go as close to honor road as possible to be led and not pushed to decide for ourselves rather than having the decision made for us. Teaching is important and it's necessary but it should be reserved for actual objective skills where the teacher is universally recognized expert in most organizations. The vast majority of coaching opportunities don't fall under this umbrella. In most cases the skills being taught are subjective in nature they have multiple correct answers or the invite people to put their own spin on the execution. I know many leaders who are really good at one of these things but very few who excel both so. What are some of the attributes of good coaching listening asking questions? Empathy pointing out a person's strengths. Creating a structured environment where irrelevant noises avoided and successes more likely encouraging creation of goals and ultimately allowing you the person to find their own solution. Why does it seem to be so hard for leaders? The two primary reasons are one. It takes time to do it right. It takes time telling a person the answers quick setting the stage that allows them to figure it out on their own is often tedious work and it carries some risks that they won't figure it out and the failure reflect poorly on you as the leader. The other reason is ego. Some leaders believe that if they're people are able to solve their own problems but there won't be an obvious connection to the relevance and the importance of that leaders presence. Many of these leaders are actually really good. People that just don't live willin `ambiguities or they worry their own boss in able to see their contribution unless it's really obvious in doesn't need to be inferred improving. Your coaching skills doesn't require going back to school or months of training. But it does require a purposefulness that understands the process of learning is even more important than the skills being learned because that process makes the relationship stronger and it sets the stage for future success. The next time coaching required. Thanks for listening and have a great
Radical Personal Finance
Comparing Graduate Degree Programs
"We're going to begin today with Daniel in Virginia Daniel. Welcome to the call. How can I serve you today sir? John thanks thanks so much for Talking to me I'm I'm pretty new to the radical personal finance but I thought I had a question that I've been searching through the back Cadillac Cadillac four and it. It just kind of concerns a master's degrees and Basically situation as my girlfriend is looking at doing a masters this fall and she's kind of apply to programs and gone in and basically. I just wanted to get your thoughts on. How should I think about Paying and kind of helping her out and basically She She. The cost of programs are Efficiently different one is twenty thousand dollars And the other is basically eighty thousand dollars and she makes about forty thousand dollars right now on could make you know maybe fifty sixty k when she finishes in two to three years and You know I make About seventy five thousand dollars a year and I really liked to to help her out in some way But I just want to know how how you think about kind of comparing those two programs they obviously have different reputations but they have vastly different costs. And just you know any any advice would be really appreciated. What would the masters degree be in? What areas of study it? It is in international development and they're slightly different focuses on the programs. But but that's basically it when you say that her income would go potentially from forty thousand dollars to fifty or sixty thousand dollars. Would she be would is that a guaranteed a pay increase for example her current job where she's happily employed says? If you have a masters degree will pay you an extra ten or twenty thousand dollars per year or is that a guess as to what she would now be qualified to go out in the marketplace. And look for. Yeah that that's definitely a gas. Josh not not guaranteed. How much money does she have currently saved pay for a master's degree? She has twenty thousand dollars in cash and and about ten thousand in investments. Does she have any other debt other than Does she have any of the debt? Currently I note that neither of us have debt and the difference between the twenty thousand dollars school in eighty thousand dollars school. I would imagine one is much much more prestigious but is there any sense that you can be confident that there would be a a major difference in her job prospects if she had the name Brand School. I so I do think her job prospects would be better with the name brand school. It's hard to really quantify how much better the prospects would be you know. It's a bigger alumni network and A more recognized program. The twenty thousand dollars program has it's only about five to ten years old kind of thing. Well here's how I approach it. Just kind of a few things got a lot of color to give you a fairly brief answer and just hit some hits is high high points on it for you so number one. It's dangerous for you to do financial planning together with a woman that you're not married to if you want to give her money and just simply say here's a gift of money then of course that's always you're right and I'm sure she will appreciate that. But given you have no legal protections of marriage you should not expect that there's any guarantee of your quote unquote investment into her education so marriage. If if you if you're married to somebody then you get divorced while then the judge sits down and you look at how much of each of us contributed etcetera and who's earned money and how we supported one another and things like supporting your spouse while you're spouses in school. Become a meaningful part of divorce settlement when you are unmarried unless you have some kind of financial agreement between the two of you which you can do as unmarried people then you just simply need to think that any money that I give. Her is just simply a straight gift and so from that regard from a financial perspective. That's not necessarily a very safe thing for you because you're giving money to somebody with no guarantee of return now. I doubt that that's a big concern for you. But as a financial planner need to start with number two with regard to a masters degree. I'm a fan of education and I think that generally more education does help I I question if credentials ation is necessary in many careers but there are some careers in which it really is helpful. I have a masters degree myself. Someday I my guess is someday I'll do a PhD at the moment. It's not interesting to me but someday because I'm the kind of person who likes to check off list okay. I'll get a PhD. But what I do think makes sense is to not overpay for it and I would be shocked if the eighty thousand dollar degree turned into that much more of job options that couldn't be achieved with twenty thousand dollar degree now. Is it possible sure? Are there field in which the the right network makes all the difference certainly You can make I think a strong business case at times for something like going into a name brand education ED- education market getting the Harvard. Nba Because of access to the alumni network because of access to the job offers. Sometimes you can make a very strong argument for the name brand law schools. Because of getting the plum the plush the pump plum internships. The really the really high level introduced with the high firms and that pedigree can be very very helpful for you that said It's a lot of money and so I would not go into debt for a master's degree and so what I would say. Is that if she wants to pursue the name brand degree I would either figure out a way to simply pay out of pocket for it Working her way through. Maybe you have to do it. More slowly or I would find a way to get reimbursed as part of a job so changed to a job where there's GonNa be some kind of reimbursement system otherwise I would go with the lower cost degree. I think that if you go with lower-cost degree you can check the box for credential. Ization yes. I have a master's degree and then on the side. You can access any social network yourself. You can access any demonstrate any level of capability you can study To whatever degree you want I have never found With the exceptional a holden exception for a technical study like perhaps something like Law School Engineering School But in international development I cannot imagine that that the the actual course of study makes a difference in her knowledge. You can learn so much more as a self taught student and you can advertise yourself so much more without necessarily having to get the credential that to me. It just seems like a waste of money if I had the difference between twenty thousand dollars. Eighty thousand dollars available as far as Of of of of money What I would do is I would focus first on getting the twenty thousand dollar degree and then I would take the time on the on the side to market myself. Effectively build a career oriented website. Make sure that I'm systematically building my presence in the field. You know an international development podcast is going to be far more helpful for her than You know where she gets to meet everybody. That's going to be the most helpful. And most impactful way for her to build her career versus getting an eighty thousand dollar degree. And so if I had the choice between spending twenty thousand and eighty thousand I would go twenty thousand because I have the money and can pay for it and then I would invest money into developing my brand reading the books doing the projects writing the papers writing the essays writing the blog. Post writing the books that are not a current that are currently needed in my field of study and relieved the financial stress. The only exception would be in my opinion if you found somebody who some company that we're willing to pay the full price of the degree and then in that situation things would be slightly different.

What are the consequences of Trump's impeachment trial?
"And joining us now John store who is a contributing writer the Washington monthly in the editor and publisher of the editorial board a daily newsletter about politics in plain English for the common good way he just write the article Donald Trump will have his revenge when he does be ready welcome to background briefing John Stoll thank you for having me Sir John last week's activities particularly the closing vote on Friday where the Republicans voted against having any witnesses or any documents in this bogus said thing that they call it a trial in the Senate the impeachment trial there wasn't a trial it was clearly there the vote was orchestrated behind the scenes by Mecom none of it was accidental and you're right that Lamar Alexander is the final act was doing his friend Susan Collins Republican made a big favor with these very Collins I'm popular and facing reelection could safely vote yes said that she could not have campaign at home with her to keep her moderate reputation intact so that's an example of how it was orchestrated so what do you expect in the next couple of days we've got that super ball today Sunday proceeded on fox with an interview between president trump and shown Hannity that'll be a love fest and then more wrangling in the Senate somewhat few trial on Monday and perhaps even on Tuesday state of the union Tuesday evening and then Wednesday the vote to acquit trump says that's the schedule but one of the consequences do you think to the American people well the consequences are going to be that it was a sham trial that is going to not do the president any favors I think the problem is that the American voters have a very short memory and the media tends to track that pattern itself the student is soon as Lamar Alexander voted no that was pretty much the beginning of the end of the media's attention to the impeachment trial in the Senate it will I think by the time we get to Wednesday we will barely even remember that there was an impeachment trial on on on but last week and all of that is that is going to be reinforced by normal things like there's a Superbowl and then there's the the Iowa caucuses coming up and so there's a good a normal things but is going to be deep and much more cynically by Sean Hannity interviewing the president you know during the most watched eight of TV the end of the year and it is it should be troubling to people it might might take in all of this is that we have we all have to be better citizens so it's very easy to point the finger at the Republicans say they're doing this to us Democrats and liberals I can feel a sense of powerlessness like all my god I can't believe what's going on this is terrible and then there's a kind of urge to just walk away well where are you going to walk away too this is a **** this either you're going to you know you're either you're an American or you're gonna leave this country and most people are not going to leave this country and and what do you get what do you want to do if you're going to walk away you cannot vote you know you're not going to participate but yet that reality is that yes a lot of people won't vote they won't participate and that's it exactly what somebody like trump wants to see to see so so everything that I've been writing last week no matter how much doom and gloom that there might be he is really an effort to urge people to goose them into seeing this is really bad but we we really each of us has to do our part and our part is voting apart is talking about this I don't mean like being angry all the time because I don't think that's humanly sustainable but we definitely have to keep these crimes that the president committed at the forefront of our conversation so the impatient process itself of course almost from day one is trump is reminded that the American people every opportunity gets and his supporters do and it resonates amongst the forty percent that support him that the Democrats route to get it from day one and until she the record reflects that I remain of yelling at a local congressman I think very early in the first months of trump's administration when he went to the floor the house and call for impeachment and it's been going on for some time Nancy Pelosi resisted it and finally obviously couldn't resist anymore because of pressure from the base if you will the democratic base but what happened in the Senate is both predictable and inevitable to my mind and my fear is that we have reached a point in this culture in America where right a wrong don't matter win or lose is all that counts and the Republicans are winners and the Democrats to lose and I have a think I have a terrible sense that the Democrats can have a hard time they don't have anybody running for president looks like they can beat trump I don't know that they're putting any effort into winning back the Senate and they could even lose the house so unless they do what you said and they have to do that in droves everybody has to vote every last person has to vote in this country to get rid of this guy because the Russian's potent and they're gonna do what they can to keep him in power they'll cheat and he's actually he'll actually encourage him to change his already done that he done it last time he got caught impeached for trying to do it again and he will do it now that he's been exonerated he'll do it in spades so this is the landscape ahead I mean tell me I'm being pessimistic no no I don't think you're being pessimistic sorry no I don't think you're being pessimistic but I also don't see hopelessness and us either I think it's a very liberals tend to kind of pretend a little bit the liberals and what I mean by pretenders that liberals are liberalism is not is not political liberalism is really a state of mind it's a it's a set of preferences it's it's more in line with fact and reason that's what makes it liberal right if I want something and I worked to achieve that goal I pro as a liberal I would seek a democratic process work toward consensus marshal the facts in my favor or maybe spend them a little bit but but all that's in the interest of using persuasion instead of force to get what I want right well you know conservatives are I put the that word in quotes conservatives don't think that way you know that it's all about power and morals or morality is either an impediment or to tool to exploit to get what what you want and then in the end it in if it if it is an impediment really just run it right over and just you know don't worry about it and you to an you're not worried about appearing hypocritical either because the never matter to you anyway it also liberals tend to be very long term oriented you know they we tend to think about ten years from now what we want right conservatives are very very myopic they think about what's going to happen tomorrow all of this explains Mitch McConnell's behavior you know we a lot of people would say well exoneration equivalents going without exoneration is not much of an acquittal is it and he that may be true but he doesn't care because he will he will win today right now it's complicating all of this is that we have a very this is not that I don't mean to speak in monolithic terms here but for the most part the Washington press corps is entitled moral that's how I put it it is it will not come to a moral conclusion based on facts because to come to a moral conclusion would be a value judgment that the profession tends to purge from its members in in to be anti Marlys actually complementary to the profit oriented ness of the industry so with the problem with this impeachment trial is the problem of his coverage I mean is the most attention was paid to you know Wheeler won't for Republicans vote to call for witnesses and if they do or don't that's the measure of whether the president wins or loses right less attention was paid to the actual evidence pointing to guilt you know and and I laughed because it it it it's ridiculous right I mean if we had a moral press we would be looking at the reality which is expressed by way of evidence pointing to a moral conclusion right but what you get is this the well known both cider ism you know that the Democrats say this the Republicans say that in truth and lies are treated equally and it's a no so the conflict between the two parties is prioritized over the substance of the evidence against the president so all of this kind of being a citizen only know what they know because the press tells them right and if the press is telling them there's just two sides fighting all the time well that's what usually most people most of the time you're going to understand that to be the case when it comes to
What to Expect from 'Lord of the Rings: Gollum'
"I totally forgotten that this Lord of the Rings Column Game had been announced early last year. Same Lord of the Rings. Ghalem a game where you play as column based on the books not the movies in a Prequel to Lord of the Rings The update this week. We've got some game playing some information about the game. This week is also confirmed for places and five and Xbox in twenty twenty one confirmed Nexgen Platform. So what are some of the details yet. Well let's see here We don't gone is GonNa look like obviously not gonNa look like Indie Circus's version of dumb. They mentioned in that early illustrations of gallon. where he's huge like shop thing much Fisher told edge edge magazine that Tolkien didn't have a size reference for them? To begin with so in the first illustrations he's gigantic like a monster. Emerging from the swamp cool token like revise is that. I'm sure I'm sure. Oh wait a minute what also is it up to Tolkien. Here's a big Gomez. Yeah he was a hobbit. Yeah we talking talking about in these early in these early illustrations. He hadn't determine that he was hobbit yet. Don so that's a good point but there's a whole like the weibring up for something like Star Wars is the whole story group that's helping to side with cannon and what's not but with Lord of the rings it's like anybody could just paint whatever they wanted. Yeah that's true that's true. Yeah yes bipedal. It'll creature out the window. I hope it's I hope it's a riddle generator. That's the game. Yeah you know what I hope. It's going to be a fishing in a fishing. I love fishing game. I'm sure there will be fishing moments. I hope how else how else you exactly. Luckily you love just fishing. If not fishing mini games you love the fishing games like bass master. Yes I was going to mention the Black Bass and the Blue Marlin brand. Yes this great. Those guys are great. Yeah we are. They can't can't tell if serious no love fishing. RPG's big fan. They have such a strong fishing. If if you go to different lakes and use a boat if so wait. I'm sorry if I missed this. Who is the developer of the data? Data Lick So. That's not warner brothers. No because Warner Brothers has the right to the movies. The move gains based on the movie shadow of war isn't n specifically they WANNA to move away. They are using they use. Peter Jackson's version of knowledge Okay all right we know that in ORCs look like ORCs in the as In this game so it's data look entertainment which they've made a bunch of games that I've never heard of he's like did you did you. We were talking about so they said there's decision making in this game which all games have like dialogue decision making on the Duma or not Damon Telltale game Telltale style game. And I think it's just going to be an action game with segments. I dated has made point and Click Adventures. I think that's kind of what they're known for. Click like you know if it's a Prequel who knows what it gone. We're going to get but he doesn't lend himself to like you know action need three world still sure it could be like like almost daily Stealth Ish game yeah. I don't think it's going to be like gallon. Like throttling a bunch of people and infiltrating base. But I think it'd be cool if you're like avoiding you know stuff stuff obstacles and then maybe exploration I mean he can he can basically move vertically on walls he it could be a climate uncharted mccollum. Gholam a good way to sir. John's like that's like a combination of climbing puzzles. Yes and throttling gum hiding all the triggers an internal final dialogue options Gome should absolutely be able to climb everything. That's what he does and fish. We blame as deep into his corruption by the one ring and he conveys a different set of emotion than those seen in the films because he needs to be more sympathetic and relatable because you're playing his his care changing the character to fit your interests. He's fairly senior Eh. Things that cute song sneakers. But he's a betrayer and Taylor's we can expect stealth Alf gameplay dual personality mechanic huge levels so that doesn't sound like one click adventure huge levels in a move away from the violence. The dominance other Lords utterings games lord of the rings plural is shadow lords of the ring. If this takes place between the Hobbit and Lord of the rings that's an era in which ghalem goes to more door gets captured word gets tortured gets captured again by Era Gorn when he set free goes to Merck quilt. You go into more detail this. This is interesting okay. So we're explained this to me yesterday. Yesterday you want me to go into more detail and year thirty thirteen We know that the bill meets Ghalem and yeah gets gets the ring from him. Yeah so then. At that point a gallon is like whoa. You Know He. He knows that there's a thing called the Shire and he knows what that there's half lanes and that WHO baggins begins right and we know that because in the very beginning of ordering seen the movies he's shouting that it'd be well being tortured and and more door and that's because he he leaves and he goes to try to figure out where his ring is and at some point he gets captured and taken and tortured. But then Sarah and says you probably try to trick us and they're not giving us all this information but you did give give us this great information that there's somebody in bags in the shower or whatever the show in the movie goes Shire back in. They all the black. Riders are repeating so then Then he uses gallon because they think like. Oh we'll just follow them and he'll lead us right to at some point in their duck alum talks to she. She blob probably and stuff like that. I don't know because then he has a relationship but she later you know where you can say like. Eat these hobbits and we'll make a deal. But then he goes to to to He gets captured by airborne and they want to interview him at that point because they know he had something to do with the ring again. That's trying to figure out what the one if it's the one ring or not but she doesn't realize for a long time he knows it's ring a power. There's there's eleven of them or whatever so that will happen again. Stopped me when I'm going too far Oh I'm just trying to give geographic sense of where gallon could go then. He goes to to be captured by the ELVES. And Merck would and there's a battle there's the There's a the sirens. Dark forces are like you know in Merck. Would at that time and all the stuff happening so there could be a battle sequence in this too but then gallon gets out and then somehow he meets up with the fellowship in under the misty mountains in the minds Maurier. So that means he's probably released for you. He's a ski escapes escapes in the turmoil or something from recruited and during that battle and then he comes across in his lost and maybe more effort longtime because he just comes upon them then and that's that's the point which he joins wins the hunt for the ring again. This is all happening before the game supposed to be set before all that stuff. Yes yes so. I think this would lead up to the point in which he's maybe in market or something like that add maybe it ends with him like finding the fellowship probably doesn't make sense Yeah I guess it would make sense. He's lost the ring so that's why he's on a quest to try and get. Yeah exactly I think that could be the motivation if it's before that if it's when he has the ring like it could be about him like losing the ring in the cave and just trying to find it because he lost and then before that which I don't think it would be it'd be him finding the ring being corrupt and kicked out of the village and all that stuff which they also seem to allude to the fact that like through these narrative decisions that you're making within the dialogue as you're single versus column that you can arrive at an ending that's more leaning towards one personality over the others that kind of gives an idea of what the story might be or at least what the ending room gone has technically a happy ending because he gets that rain and it's just yes second or two. Yeah well spoilers We my favorite part of that whole Lord dumped by the way. Is that in when you saw the hobbit movies which are terrible but they expand a lot on this in the books golic just disappear. Excuse me Gandalf just disappears from the book and then he comes back in like a hundred pages later is like Oh sorry I had to go take down this neck. Romance her in the forest and then he's just back in the book. It's not a part of the story story. It's never addressed again when you're a child reading this book. What what just happened like he kicks he kicks out of Merck? Would and it happens off off camera and the book it's insane. Yeah he like fleas. I think even showed that a little bit in the hobbit movies Dayton whole subplot in. But that's what they're talking about. Well so what's your impression of this Looking about the comments a lot of people were like why would I want to play his column in a game of any guarantee and Lord of the Rings would I want to be going. Well certainly sets you in like more of Steph environment airman. So that's cool. It's different than the shadow of war or more door games that we played. I think he's really interesting negatively. But it's the game play you know. I don't know there's there's a reason that those games are like sword and board. That's a very established format for making a successful fund. Video game now has been like a kind of a controversial addition to the Lord of the Rings Really Creepy. And I don't really you know it's really Peter. Jackson did a lot with that character to make it. I think more fleshed out an interesting resting than I ever thought of in the books and I think that's a really good thing so I'll do that. It'd be great also a credit to Andy Circus and you know my policy on elves. And everything. Only tolkien's allowed to use those. Yeah that's elves and hobbits especially if those are in other things come on how lame up with your own stuff. How lame are the ELVES pitcher? Yeah Oh my God. Nobody does not the half lanes man. They're they're in the game that's like nobody else can do hobbits but they cheat by having hassling. Yeah aw come up with your own fantasy stuff. I agree it's not as bad. I can't even talk about the witcher though because later episodes knows of other bad things anyway. Lord of the Rings Column Coming 2021. PS Five xbox series x alongside.

What's the History (and Future) of Toilets?
"Consider the flush toilet. It's the fascinating device. If you think about it. This giant porcelain chairs installed into every modern American bathroom using gallons of precious drinking water everyday to whisk your urine feces into oblivion better known as the municipal wastewater treatment plant nearest you every time you flush, but have you ever considered? What else we could be doing with our poop in pee? You probably don't really want to think about it. And neither does pretty much anybody else, which is why the flush toilet we twenty-first-century century. Humans us hasn't changed much since it was first patented in seventeen seventy five by Scottish watchmaker named Alexander coming Cummings. Toilet was a slightly altered version of the commode designed for Queen. Elizabeth the first by her godson, sir. John Harrington in fifteen ninety two Cummings had an s shaped pipe to trap, bad odors, while Harrington's had not, of course, self flushing. Toilets heated seats in those vacuum potties like you see on airplanes in tour buses came later. But. Our one and done attitude towards commode innovation probably comes from the fact that we simply don't want to think about poop that much. We spoke with DNA. Mcdonagh a professor of industrial design in the Beckman institute of advanced science and technology at the university of Illinois at our banish campaign. She said within the American culture, there's still resistance and reluctance to discuss body waste the toilet has remained relatively unexplored. I think because we're failing to realize that to quote, a British saying where there is muck. There's brass we are failing to see the potential opportunity are modest toilet is offering us because the notion of immersing yourself in such a product because all feel so uncomfortable. But going to the bathroom isn't something. We've always been squeamish about long ago. It was just another experience and opportunity for relaxation. And hanging out the ancient Romans used toilet time as a time to catch up with their friends in the year three hundred and fifteen BC Rome had one hundred and forty four bustling public toilets lined with stone benches with keyhole shaped cutouts situated, all along them where people would sit together and do their business, and maybe some gossiping to later in medieval England, you could be walking down the street and someone might throw the contents of their chamber pot out the window onto you. They might say sorry about it. But it would kind of be on you for walking too close to their house. Fancier medieval, people used Garda robe a little closet. Stuck onto the side of a castle with a hole in the floor that emptied into a moat or cesspit clothes were also kept in the Garda row. But because it was thought stench of human waste would keep the fleas moths out of the garments public Garda roads in London empty directly into the Thames, which was an unbelievably poor public health. With move as the population of Europe grew over the course of the eighteen hundreds up to one hundred people would share the same public garter robe and the waste just washed into the rivers tainting, the drinking water supply, which explains why so many outbreaks of cholera typhoid and other waterborne diseases bedeviled nineteenth century Europeans, resulting in more than half the working class population dying for the age of five it was a mess. As a result of a particularly hot summer in London in eighteen Fifty-eight when these smell of rotting sewage bay living in the city completely unbearable Parliament Commission to the construction of the London sewer, which was finished in eighteen sixty five deaths resulting from waterborne diseases plummeted and cities all over the world. Followed suit and constructed their own sanitary sewers the toilet patented by coming eventually became standard in houses and wealthy countries. All over the world along with slight variations patented by others like Thomas, crapper. Yes, that's his real name whose contributions to the overall design of the toilet were minimal. But whose legacy endures because he made sure his name was visible on. All of his products. And hey, it's great that fewer people are dying due to poor sanitation in these places anymore. But the toilet is due for an upgrade. So what do we need? Our new toilets to do. Mcdonagh said toilets offer a relatively unexplored territory that offers significant potential in respect to healthy living and healthy aging as individuals are taking more responsibility for their health. Eating habits and wellbeing. The bathroom offers a somewhat blank canvas for us to integrate intuitive technology to support the individual imagine a toilet that could tell you. How hydrated you were whether you are deficient in particular vitamins or new of blood in your stools and changes in your hormones. We literally flush all that information away each day in the form of waste matter. So we could find out a lot about our own health from our toilets, but according to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which launched their reinvent the toilet challenge. Back in twenty eleven the next generation of toilets will also be able to kill pathogens compost human waste and keep up with the fast urbanization of the twenty first century. And all that without sewer, infrastructure electricity or a water source. They might even be able to minor waste for valuable elements like phosphorus nitrogen and potassium and separate solid and liquid waste in order to use them to make things like building supplies. But we'll the new toilets. Look very much different from the one in your bathroom now or the one, sir. John Harrington made for Queen Elizabeth in the sixteenth century, probably not much unless you've got any bright

The Predator movie review
"We got a new category, predator here is the brasa predator Rostom on. So, yeah. We just watched the predator. It's stuck on my hat. It is. There? Yeah, we just wash it and I think we both kinda liked it. I think I liked it more than you did. Right. But I think we both raised a pretty high. Yeah, we did. I, I'm, I'm putting up my number three as my third favorite predator movie. What about so I put her to. I'm gonna put it right back to it, just it just ekes out over the second one predator to mostly because the action sequences and any movie were Gabe. UC dies. I kinda downgrade, you can't kill the man, Gary abusing, even then even before the movie that shows some previews and they talked about the second with the way Gary UC died had to be epic. Yeah, yeah. They were shown ended previews that was kind of like you pointed out. You've got cut in half, but we're talking. Fell down ever feel. Yeah, he's uttering see, I place it second, and you put just blow that third. I mean, I honestly came in thinking this movie was going to be, I would have probably been walking out, but I, I liked it. It was pretty good all the pre all the previews and the talk. I was expecting it to be bad and. Shane black. I don't know a lot of his work anyway, so I was kinda kinda if you on that. I didn't see a lot of the action sequences in the previews. So I think the action sequences really helped a lot to elevate it in my mind. Yeah. I know you also talked about some of the humor in it. Kind of didn't Dan deferred you little bit, or what did you think about some of the humor parts? There was more humor than normal in the first one had some humor into two, but it was more kind of almost dark humor, but it was. It was a little different. You know, we had key in it, so it's going to be a little humor. You got, it's like, you can't have. He's got to be the smart ass or he's got us say something funny. He can't. You can't not. It wasn't enough to make the movie bad for me, but it was close. It was borderline too much. I mean, we're starting at the yellow peaks on the humor part you you rated your third one, second one. Sorry, I got my third one. Let's the some people. And we're here with what's your name, Sir? John, just we just watched the predator. What'd you think spreading the good? I love. I mean, what did you think about the what? What did you think about the action sequences? I mean, where would you? Where would you rank this among the all the predator movies that are out there. I don't know if I can really say it's better than you know the original predator with Arnold, but in definitely ranks up there 'cause I put it, I put his second. I jumped way up to second. And any favorite part of the movies every what's your favorite part of this movie? Without giving any spoilers just, you know. The, I guess the big surprise, you know. All right. I know so many good parts. It's easy to stop. I was so surprised watching. This will be. I be honest, I thought I thought I was going to be walking out of this movie. I wasn't going to enjoy it as much as I did. So we were talking about on the way out of the theater and I was like, wow, it's way better than I thought. Yeah, I did enjoy it a lot more than I thought I was as you know, mo- most sequels tend to kind of go little downhill and this one, honestly, just about it all the way back. Did you notice they kept referencing the first two movies? I honestly, I was thinking that was expecting Arnold or Donald Donald Glover, Donald governor Daniels, Danny, Danny Glover. Sorry, Donald was Landau. I was expecting cameo from there, but never came out, but it's still pretty good. Right? Yeah, I was expecting Arnold because you know it's new predator movie, but we, we did get a beauty. We did. We did. We did play actually played the guy son keys, so. So you gave it thumbs up liked it to them. Thanks man. Right. Thank you.
