"This process. And you can select different attributes of what's the name of this piece of artwork, what's the royalties involved? If there are secondary cells, how much do you want involved? So a lot of these will make it super easy for you to go through that process. I think the hardest part actually is getting set up with a wallet and onboarding yourself into accepting cryptocurrency in that piece. But there's marketplaces now that make it accessible. And some marketplaces will also maybe have you go through some onboarding process. And so they might have some due diligence on the artist and making sure this is real artwork and not copied by some other artists and making sure it's really high quality pieces. And there are others that are just like, hey, anyone can meant this. So it's quite a spectrum right now. That's great. But I got to set up my meta mask. And what does that even mean? Can you guys explain the wallet part two as well? Because one theoretically does not necessarily have to actually interact with cryptocurrencies directly. So if you guys could break down really quickly, not bit too. Sure, I can do this to have a doubt. So the concept of a crypto wallet boils down to what's called the public and private key pair. So basically you have a public address on the blockchain, which is where your assets, your stuff is associated. So sonal has a public address, and you can tweet that out and say, hey, I'm sono. Here's my public address. And here's all my stuff. And your Bitcoin can be at that address on Ethereum, you'd have a different address and all your stuff on the Ethereum blockchain would be associated with your public key. And then there's the private key. The private key is what unlocks the transfer of assets in your wallet. So you need the private key to unlock stuff.

"Think that when when we're thinking about You know. I think this conference where at authentic key twenty twenty one one of the things i was thinking about is authenticate is is is important. Authentications no doubt an important part but to have a complete what customers are actually looking for isn't just authentication. They're looking for an identity solution and an identity solution encompasses a lot more things than just fido authentication so i'm excited than had some wonderful conversations with folks this week on all kinds of topics from account recovery to You distributed identities And and just evolution of the web but Yeah so to answer your question I you know.

And now i see women lining the streets of kabul hitter protesting the same way and yet the situation that they will face what they will endure. Fear is far more horrific and gruesome times.

This is on point. This is on point. I'm magnetic regarding. The war in afghanistan lasted twenty years and across four presidencies beginning with president. George w bush in two thousand one on my orders. The united states military has begun strikes against al-qaeda terrorist training camps and military installations of the taliban regime and afghanistan. These carefully targeted actions are designed to disrupt the use of afghanistan as a terrorist base of operations and to attack the military capability of the taliban regime. Two thousand and two president bush in his state of the union address.

"Even though you're still startup sometimes in government when i started the office of social innovation at the white house we were very much a startup. This was a new idea. This is a new way of thinking but we had fifty million dollars and then we got another two hundred and fifty million dollars and we got seven hundred fifty million dollars and we had to operate at scale with the nimble -ness of being a startup to make sure that you're still learning and adapting fast enough so what tap reminds me of is we have to do both equally well. We have to be nimble startup and at the same time. Be a good steward of the money. That's been given to us and make sure we'd spend it while and do well by the community had really thought about before the government. It's almost like they're two separate activities right. One is approving the money with only a general idea about how that money is actually going to be spent and then other folks were tasked with spending or allocating to program some of which may be effective someone which may not be affected. But you need to just act immediately. Right challenging bob on this that the government money in some cases has to be spent in that year so if it got approved in september of twenty twenty one it has to be spent by september. Twenty twenty two right and years not a long time. How are you what the right word resisting the impulse to spin through the money that you have on tap already as you're trying to figure out what's going to have the most impact over a longer period of time so i think what we're doing is in short term pieces like we're going to start with more work on anti-hate and making sure we're addressing like how do we prepare communities. How do we make sure the next time there is an atlanta at the community is ready and the mayor's ready and the local organizations are ready. So we're getting some grants out the door at the same time. We're building a long term strategy of how do we have the greatest impact and where the places that we can have the greatest impact so what's at stake in this moment early moment for taff the biggest thing we have is. We launched creating a lot of sense of community for many asian american organizations and asian american communities. What we need to show is that we are here for the long term. We're not big splash big event and then we moved on but that we are here. We want to build relationships. In the communities we want to build relationship with government we want to build relationship with corporations and we want to make sure that asian americans are visible so our goal now is to make sure that we build the long term infrastructure in the communities as well as ourselves to make sure. We're here for multigeneration. Are there any local organizations or community organizations that you've had the occasion to engage with as part of this role that you serve opened your eyes while they're doing something special. There are so many of them. But i want to talk about the four that we've invested in immediately. The first organization is asian. Americans advancing justice. Ajc they are both a national organization and a regional organization. They work across the country to make sure we both have a federal approach as well as a city approaches walls a national approach and they were the lead organization. Post atlanta really liaising with the federal government. Then there's another group called stop. Api hate they have been the most well known group out there because they are collecting the most data on anti hate incidents and they have been an incredible partner. They're working with us on making sure we can track across the country more effectively a third organization that we've been working with is not puff. They are national. Asian american organization working with women asian american women as you can guess post atlanta that is also very important too often in our communities. We don't think about how hate and other things. Work against women and not puff has been one of the leading organizations in the country working on this and then finally. We gave money to the asian american education project. They took the documentary. That pbs had done on asian american history. And they're turning it into curriculum. So those are four key partners as well as the urban institute and the anti-defamation league eight identification leaks helping us spelled out our structures to address anti hate and the urban institute is doing a landscape study for us on asian american organizations across the uso. That's a start but there's so many organizations in our country that are working in communities across the country and we are just starting to tap into many of them. It's been a stressful year with the pandemic with the heat issues with the economic issues. Has it been stressful for you. How do you handle your own stress in these environments. While there's been a lot of stress on a lot of families i mean. I've been lucky that i had a job throughout the pandemic that i was able to work from home i was able to spend time with my parents and make sure that they were okay. There has been a lot of stress. And i think our communities have been working through a lot of that stress. I know many of my family members central workers so they were going into work all the time. Some of them were doctors. Some of them worked grocery stores. The way i've learned to deal with stress as i do two things one run. It's sort of allows me to just decompress. And then the second thing i do is. I do meditate in the mornings. I do about thirty minutes every day. And it's a way to center myself in the mornings as i'm listening to. I'm thinking about the other parts of being a start up. There are a lot of organizations that are struggling in new with what they do remotely and what they do in the office. As your conceiving and building out half are you. Conceiving it as a remote organization is their home office since you're starting from scratch you sort of have some leeway in those areas also. Bobby ask the tough questions now. You know it's funny. We started this organization. Virtually i'd never met. Most of my team members had recruited them and ask them to come. But i hadn't actually worked with them before. Met them so it's been a learning experience on how to do that effectively and it's been great like i'm impressed. Just how we've been able to do it and give a lot of credit to a generation. That just knows how to use technology better than i do. We aren't looking at building an office. Because i do think that it's important that we also get to work together and understand each other. There is a sense of understanding and learning. So we're looking at both actually assessing whether we are in new york. Dc and san francisco. We do think there's a need for a west coast presence because fifteen percent of the asian. American population is in california. Seattle also has a very large asian american population in new york city. It's thirteen percent of the population so we need to make sure we're in the places where our communities are and dc largely because policy is such an important part of the conversation for us. This has been great. Are there any things that i haven't asked you that. We haven't talked that i should have. What if we missed. So bob great conversation and thank you for having me. I just wanna say before we leave. While we've spent a lot of time talking about anti-aids hate and the issues around anti hate. I think one of the most powerful things we do is actually about belonging and ensuring that asian american communities but frankly all communities feel like we are part of the contribution of the united states and part of building of the united states. and it's an important part of who we all are and we want to be seen as part of that so the belonging piece is just as important as the peace. Well so thank you for being here and for sharing and being part of our community in trying to spread. This word appreciate it. Thank you so much a now.

"You began this start up with one hundred and twenty million dollars which is a well funded startup certainly for a lot of startups and you've identified another billion dollars in resources already as part of your giving challenge. Explain how that worked sure. The beauty for me was that our board stepped up offered one hundred twenty five million first so they said we have to make a commitment ourselves and the board really stepped in and said we're gonna commit one hundred and twenty five million dollars over five years start. Then we started to reach out to other friends of the board. Other friends of asian americans asking if they would want to join in to match some of the funding that the board was putting in and then we reached out to corporations and asked if they could join in to be honest we would have been happy with another hundred million in matches and we were surprised at how many people wanted to join in with us and the next thing you know is we started on may third all of a sudden people are like we want and we want to be a part of this by may twentieth. We had raised one billion dollars and that money all of it does not come to taff. Ninety percent of it goes to the communities themselves through foundations through community foundations and ten percent of it comes through taff so that money. That's being donated. You guys are dictating where it goes. Am i understanding that right or not. Exactly we are not dictating the money where it goes what we will say as we're making these investments. Do you want to join an with us. Co invest with us every donor has slightly different interests. So people may do different things but some of them may coup invest with us. Some of it may be that they do their own but we can highlight for them where the needs of the are a lot of our listeners. Are business people are in the business. Community is the experience of asian-americans in the business community. Different like there's the model minority myth persists there. Yeah the model minority myth definitely also exists within the business community a lot of businesses and we heard from a lot of our partners to say that we need to do more for our asian. American populations are companies. And what more should we be doing. We do these donations through corporate platforms. Who are the asian american organizations on those corporate platforms that can be donated to matching donations at companies and others do. How do they invest in. Asian american suppliers and small businesses. Are they part of the supply chain that businesses are looking at so it's sort of forced conversation of are we doing enough for asian american communities in our cities and our towns and the communities that we're working in not just our employee base but also just in the business community around us. Are we investing in that. There's a lotta competition for resources and for attention in social causes and attends to kind of peak and then wayne based on the news right. How do you think about an approach. The various constituencies working on and targeted by hate hate is not a one community issue right. The black community faces it the latino community. Lgbtq communities face it. i think that that way. we've been approaching it with corporations and foundations. How do we do this together. How do we address hate that. Affects all of these communities equally. Hate his hate angry. The way we bully people the way we treat people. It's a common conversation and what we have talked about with all of our partners is. Let's do this together. Don't split us up as one group versus the other group. Don't split up the money as a competition amongst the black community versus the asian community. What this needs to be as a more intersectional conversation that we need to talk about hate across communities in order to build a multiracial democracy. We need to talk to each other about what that looks like together. Is there sort of a differentiation of responsibilities or impact that you might look to government versus business versus other community organizations. What's the role of each one in advancing this anti issue. Yeah but this is the beauty of where we sit as tab is. We want to work with all of those communities. We don't think it's one versus the other. It's not just business community's responsibility it's not just the nonprofit community's responsibility or just the government is we're gonna all have to work together to address anti hate and also belonging together so the role of the nonprofit community as they are the closest to the communities on a daily basis. They're the ones talking to the communities. The role of the business community is. How do we make sure those nonprofits and other communities are seeing and hearing these communities and what is that going to take and the role of the philanthropy and others like where are the gaps in west london. How do we funded and then finally. How do we also unlock government. Resources means working with mayor's it means working with local communities so we have to bring all of those people together and all of those different groups together and that is what tasks role is we talked. You said that is like a startup. but because it's well funded. It also reminds you a little bit of government. Can you explain what you mean by that. Yes so taff is all senses of the word you know from all the work that you've done is like startups are you're building. You're figuring out what works than you pivot and then you sort of change and you have to keep trying different things the challenge when you have a lot of money is that people expect you to have it all figured out at the beginning right so in government like you get it and you have to spend it immediately and you have to do the work immediately at scale..

"Bob sathian. And i'm here with donald shaw the president of the asian american foundation. Someone's coming to us from her apartment in washington dc. Thanks for joining us. Bob it is so great to be here and so looking forward to our conversation so you show me the view from your window. I'm curious were you there on january six. Did you see anything. That was going on during the insurrection. I was not here. But i had a lot of friends. Who were in. Dc some of whom where a lot of the folks that were part of the insurrection were staying right across from their apartments or in and around their neighborhoods near capitol hill. That was a crazy day as part of a crazy year wasn't it. It was sad that this is what happens in the united states actually was not something i would have expected so the asian american foundation was only established. Recently this year post january sixth in twenty twenty. one it's in essence a very early stage startup in that way for our listeners. What's the foundation's purpose. Its role and how did you get connected to it. So the purpose of the foundation and the mission is to create a sense of belonging and prosperity for the asian american pacific islander communities free from violence discrimination and slander. Creating an opportunity for asian americans to be seen as american in the united states and to be a part of writing the american story which we have been. We started last year right after the spike in hate incidence in march of twenty twenty the board sort of came together and really was focused. On how do we address this hate. What do we need to do. Jonathan greenburg from the ad l. reached out to many of our board members and our board joined in and said this is something we have to do. I joined in october of last year and then accelerate to march when the killings in atlanta happened. And what you have is just really an acceleration to the founding of the foundation. You led georgetown university center for social impact. You were director of socialization the white house during the obama administration but the task care is a little different whether the metrics for success or are there. Metrics is that the way you think about it. Well i started off with i think. What's the mission that we want to achieve. Which is a sense of belonging for the asian american community free from violence and then we work backwards as to what our metrics success what is belonging mean. How do we make sure narratives about the asian. American community are not the usual tropes. How do we ensure education includes education about asian american communities as part of the american story in american history. And the how do we make sure that the data that's being seen it accurately reflects who the community is and how we have been actively engaged in the united states and that instigator say was sort of starting in march of twenty twenty with the pandemic that this violence seem to be sparked by wuhan china being the source of the covid nineteen virus that that term like china virus that donald trump evoked that that was kind of the instigator. Yes sorta gives you a sense of what. The power of the presidency is when our president says that it sort of got a lot of people in the community blamed for the virus the virus itself. We don't really know the origins of the virus. We know that there was a big outbreak in china. I but americans are being blamed for the virus even though we were also victims of the virus ourselves so i think the anti hate incidents started at that time and we saw significant spikes of new york. There was an eight hundred and thirty. Three percent increase in violence against asian americans in san francisco and la. There was one hundred and fifty percent increase in march of this year. We saw them on tv. But these incidents were pretty high in march of twenty twenty. We just didn't talk about the march events this year. The shooting in atlanta that claimed the lives of eight people including six asian american women. That was not necessarily directly tied to the virus but sort of grew out of this time. This what allowing or normalizing of anti-asian hate and it's a normalizing of the other. We're never seen as americans were seen as the other where those people that are not american. We are perpetual foreigners so when something goes wrong you want to blame the asian american community. Is this historical. It's happened with the chinese exclusion act in the eighteen. Hundreds it happened with japanese incarceration in the nineteen forties. You had it. With vincent chen and nine hundred eighty two. It's this constant that it must be that we are the other over year. It's normalized that asian americans are the other and they're not part of america that sort of led to increasing violence as well as shooting minnesota new york times published an article a few weeks ago. Back asian women on the lpga tour who expressed fear about anti aging bias in the us for themselves and their families and their companions they're asian. they're not asian american. But i'm wondering how much of the expression of fear and the outbreaks of hate are sort of changed risks versus increased willingness to either act on or speak about the fears. That have been around. Yeah i think one of the things about launching the foundation. That's been so interesting is how many people wanted to speak out about what was happening to them whether was in their communities whether it was in their places of work whether it was in schools and bullying. We've heard a lot more stories. And the outbreak has sort of allowed people to feel and i think the launch. The foundation was allowed people to feel that they can express that anti-asian hate is real. It isn't just something that happened to me. I don't wanna talk about but it's something that is happening to a lot of us and that we do want to talk about it. I still think we under report. I think there's a lot more going on than we talk about. I know there was one study by. Api data that said one in four. Asian americans has felt an asian. Hate incident Do you remember where you were when you heard about the shootings in atlanta in march we had just finished a board meeting talking about our strategy and then we were all getting texts on our phones telling us that there was the shooting that happened in atlanta. The next day we took what was a strategy and said we have to start executing and getting to launch. Because we have to be out there speaking up. The founders of the organisation came out of the business world. The business community and i remember seeing newspaper ads right after the atlanta shootings. That said sir. Stand with asians and website. Some of your board members signed it. Maybe helped pay for it. Was this a related effort to the asian american foundation. Was it something completely separate. Yeah it was sort of community feeling like they needed to galvanize when they saw it happened so our board members were actively engaged because it was run through the asian pacific fund which one of our board members was on the board of. They wanted to participate in it. A lot of the folks that signed that ad that were part of the ad but also many other incidents like daniel day cam who spoke up in his on our advisory council all started to come together and say we need to do something together and that sort of really pushed the foundation to launch quickly when we talked earlier you to me less than one percent or half. A percent of charitable giving goes to the asian american pacific islander community. Why is that. Is that funder. Discrimination is that misunderstanding. Are there not enough of the right organizations or cultural obstacles to seeing an asking for help. What does that come from. I think part of it is that people have never thought about the asian american community as a minority community. People have never thought about racism against asian american communities. I'm not wholly convinced. It's evil as much as i think it is. We're overlooked for many companies for example. Eighteen to twenty percent of their population in the workforce is asian american and nobody has thought about them as an entity as a group that might be facing discrimination. Might be facing racism and this is the other trope. That's been super important about our community is people think we're successful so therefore we don't need help and there is no discrimination and that is not true. We're not wholly successful yes. The top ten percent has been successful. But i think there's a lot in that community that just doesn't get talked about so i think what happens is we're not heard as the discrimination that is happening to us and the hate incidents and things when we have spoken up. People haven't heard it haven't spoken up where frayed to talk about it because we're afraid that it's going to affect us. You alluded to the model minority myth. That asian americans are doing well and that persists those implications still run through continues to persist so the model minority myth. Just as background to everybody. Is that the asian. American minority is the model minority. They're the ones that have made it in this country. They come here. They get the education they get the good jobs and all of that that myth has been around and it continues to persist. I've heard this many times where people are like. Will you guys don't need help. Why is this the problem..
"sonal" Discussed on Secular Buddhism
"In the context of the teaching of the three doors of liberation so the three doors of liberation in buddhism are no self no form and no goal. These three doors of liberation are often referred to as emptiness sign looseness and aimlessness. Sonal go through each of these again expressing my perspective on it now so that the key idea here is that meditating on these three concepts. We begin to see a reality. That is a bit more skillful. You know we're always navigating the duality of reality as it is and reality as we think it is and exploring the notion of these three doors entering through these three doors or meditating on these. Three concepts is a way of interacting more skillfully with reality. So what happens as we start to experience the reality of impermanent permanents without the fear or anxiety that is so common to those who are confronted with the reality of them permanence think of liberation not as a destination a place that we're trying to strive to reach think of it more as a state of mind state of mind that is available to us right here and right now and one of the ways to Achieve this state of mind as to ponder or enter these three doors of liberation when we fully understand the reality of emptiness sign looseness and aimlessness. We become liberated from the type of thinking that has trapped in the prison of our own mind which is the prison of of the conditioned mind. So let's just jump into this a little bit the first quote. This is because that is this to me. Is the quote that expresses the notion of emptiness and this is about understanding interdependence you know the fact that a flower is made up of all non flower elements right. You don't have the flower. If you don't have soil rain sun you don't have rain without clouds. You don't have clouds without the sun causing the uneven heating of the earth's surface and all of these non flower elements suddenly. Become the the reason why there is a flower that can be a really powerful understanding of the nature of reality especially in the context of what this means to About self and the idea of no self so you can ask yourself really at any given moment. Who am i what am i and i've recently been thinking a lot about my past memories. After my dad passed away. I spent We'll during the the stage that he was passing away. I spent Quite a bit of time at home with my mom and with my brothers and we would look through boxes of pictures and it was fun to reminisce the memories of growing up. We had pictures of all kinds of different memories and different places and doing different things and it was interesting to me to look through some of these pictures and every now and then see a picture. Or i have no recollection of where that was or what we were doing. It's almost like seeing a picture of yourself that you don't quite recognize as you because you don't remember that place and it got me thinking about memories. In general you know we all have memories and memories. fade Older memories get replaced by newer memories. And that's just the nature of how the mind works. We don't have the ability to retain every single memory of every single thing we've ever done so certain ones that are important kind of become like our core memories and other ones fade away into the abyss of the black hole of memories..

Are You Getting The Most Out Of Infosec Conferences
"Hi everyone and welcome to the cyber-security sonal. Thanks for joining us for another session. Where we sit out the hot topics insecurity welcome to all our listeners and be sure to follow us on twitter at hashtag. Cyber zone info conferences give cybersecurity professionals a chance to network here. The latest research exchange ideas and demo hacks and new tools but with so many conferences decide which wants to attend ho. Can you get the most out of your experience. Are they worth your time and money. What's it like to be a percenter or even an organizer today. We're speaking to f secure and founder of the t two infosec conference and nordheim mark head of coms for the nordic security event disobey and vice-chairwoman for health check association. Can you share with us. A little bit about your background and your involvement with infosec conferences in the background is on demos. San non freaking seen So naturally when. I when the first infosec conference he's came to be. I was really really curious. But the problem was that most of them were held in us So eagerly waiting for the european scene to wake up and when the first black hat came to europe. It was too damn most probably your two thousand or so. I booked my tickets there on being the fee niamh of first thing. I landed that the hotel. I went to the hotel bar and saw some guys there by t shirts on and when to the table and ask them so is it. Okay if i join you guys. And they're really. Yeah yeah yeah sure. Sure on four o'clock in the morning There was a guy called thor Of hammer of god. He asked me that. You're going to be talking about tomorrow and tandy and they were like okay cool and then because i was caught a part of the crew by now They invited me to all these cool. Invite only conferences like ph neutral. That was taking place in berlin and so on. And that's basically how i got involved. I'm like a person who pick and choose this. I'm not the one goes to the physical conferences. 'cause i what i would like to just know the topic and like ask around for my peers is something that you would recommend to listen or watch or whatever Because i'm not the kind of person who wants to attend to these these misleading conferences and all is these sales pitches. That's not ideal from. Am so yeah. I'm kind of picky. So therefore i i'm more and more no turning into surfing around the web and trying to ask from pierce what they would recommend me to attend like virtually roy do you do you go to physical events like at all. Yes i did. You know pre crow. Not yeah the disobey being kind of like the main event for me. It's near live in helsinki. That's kind of one that i've been like recently participated in so speaking of the recommendations like sometimes these events on conference get like glowing reviews Sometimes you just hear that they are like you said a waste of time. So what in. Your opinion makes good conference. I think the people who know their area of expertise. They're passionate about showcasing their findings so whatever and really like giving the practical examples of how they do it. That's interesting and inspiring obviously have pretty strong opinions about this one. The reason why. I founded t to was that i sold the difference between commercial offerings. An invite only events in a if you would go to places like si- mantech conference or something like that you see. These horrible sales pitches that would actually provide us zero value. And you would really learn anything besides maybe using a tool or two and then on the invite only events. You could see that. Yeah i i was playing this game called second life and then i used that port scan the internet and so on so that the discrepancy or the difference between these two it was. It was just huge. And i won't eat to have something like that. So i had some pretty strong ideals or opinions How a good security conference would look like first of all i think. Independence is a key thing here. So no sponsor can impact or affect the agenda no product picci's on each jenner represent theories on their estate on the stage because of their skills and and This is not true for majority of the conference is for of majority of the conferences. You buy this platinum sponsorship baggage or something You get a keynote. And is it's basically we have reach reached some ridiculous Papering points for this one because you go to. Rsa kino's is worth something like five hundred thousand eurostar. Something ridiculous so. I don't think that really serves the audience too. Well transparency i. that's the key ingredient. That's well so be honest how y'all don't sell your delegate packages to outsiders and so on that this is a common thing that i learned early two thousand and three or so that it's common practice that if you attend any type of event those delegates lists got sold

What might Different human beings to different things on what i love about psycho synthesis. Psychology is that it doesn't just look at i guess his love consciousness in a. What's wrong with this person. Where do they need to develop in personality but it will send looks at the the human beings potential as well. Like in terms of what motivates a person to think just about themselves and to move to a place weather thinking about their family that community humanity. So it's looking at these different aspects of of humans and humanity and how we can like move to a place where people care about things beyond themselves so yeah i just find it very fascinating fascinating.

"And you know. I don't really think about adding more teaches. Tie goodell's in particular. I think there was a problem. They don't often go on to secondary education. Do they actually say you know. Initially setup educating the children as a teacher scheme whereby teaches could volunteer in the local primary schools in the maasai mara and that was in response to seeing. How counted the classrooms. Were and then one of our teachers. Volunteer teachers noticed that once these children finished primary school. There's no secondary school for them to move onto so at the time the region had forty seven primary schools on secondary schools. And so we decided. Okay let's build the first secondary school in the region and then we worked quite closely with the community to figure out. Okay who should we talk it. How should it be built. How should it be operated. And the experience with built up showed us to actually goes with the most marginalized part of society. They were on the going practices. Such as female genital mutilation even though kenya has bond. Fgm it it still happens in rural parts of the country. James the mind that yeah exactly and then they threw audi marriages well and sometimes loves them even dropout of school to help that mother with wins with tools and so female genital mutilation tends to happen in the transition between primary and secondary education and went into parents. We discovered if there actually was the option of sending their daughters to secondary school. If there was a school in the region they would send data so for us. It just made sense to fight song girls. Because you're helping them in terms of giving them options which are different from going through. Fdm and getting married as i just is just opening up choices not completely completely new. They were the ones most to need in some respects. I think exactly and then also you know.

Breaking Down the Final Debate
"Want to get straight to of course the big story I don't know how late you stayed up but I stayed up to the very end president trump and vice president biden facing off last night in their final debate of before the election joining us right now to focus on the issues that matter most your money pollster and political strategist Frank Luntz Frank let's get straight to it some of the top moments from the debate this one from the first hour take a look at this. They said. Elected if he's elected, the stock market will crash. Say. Very quickly. The idea that the stock market is booming this is only measuring what's happening where I come from his scranton and climb on the people don't live off the stock. Market. So, branch I. Maybe we should start here who won this debate in your mind the mind of the undecided. From One But he did not win by a significant mark. It's not GonNa Change Votes, which is the real question in the real question who's going to win this election and did the debate have an impact? and. The answer is that it it still looks like it's going to be Joe Biden still up Psychic Donald trump ended up being his worst enemy. By the way, there were two separate debates last night. If you watch for the first twenty, twenty, five minutes envy you say that you stayed up late to watch the whole thing the first twenty or twenty five minutes Tom. Trump was calm names collected as answers were. Seis, you actually had to lean into listen to him. I was in the hall and I was watching the people around me and they were all sitting forward. Debate went on got more and more agitated with Joe Biden clearly the the idea that there is that the you'd him bothering him and Joe Biden while he did not give answers kind of answers that the public wanted they were good enough. That he did well enough that I don't think it changes the trajectory though. What does your another clip right now and then I wanna walk through what what you thought about it and what those around you thought about the economy came up again when the candidates made their final case of the night. Success is going to bring us together. We are on the road to success, but I'm cutting taxes and he wants to raise everybody's taxes and he wants to put new regulations on everything. He will kill it if he gets in, you will have a depression, the likes of which you've never seen your 401k's. We'll go to hell and it'll be a very, very sad day for this country. President. Biden. Same question to you. What will you say during your inaugural address to Americans who did not vote for you? How say? I'm an American president. Represent All of you whether you voted for me or against me. And I'm GonNa make sure that you represent. I'M GONNA. Give you. Hope we're going to move. We're GONNA choose science over fiction. WE'RE GONNA CHOOSE HOPE OVER FEAR WE'RE GONNA choose to move forward because they have enormous opportunities, enormous opportunities to make things better. We can grow this economy. So, which was the more effective final a final effort. That encapsulated the election and did not show. The Donald trump chest, your four case will go to help. With Donald Trump being explicit being accusatory. Of being very strong but but being negative. And you had Joe item in the language he used I'm an American President I represent all of you. And that Biden approach I believe is the reason why he's leading in. Anywhere from eight to eleven or twelve percent. Now are undecided looking for answers and we're looking for specifics. Frankly they were looking for solutions to what's going on and they didn't feel Joe Biden provided them, and what I think is happening is that it's a choice tween sonal, you don't want and policy your freedom. Donald Trump still presents himself. In a way that others wondering too I want more more years, BIS versus policies that they don't know at aren't. Clear, and frankly Joe Biden may have to really verify them taxes ever talked about supreme. Ever talked AB- statehood. DC. Or Co now, you're going to jump in. In the end. You believe that Donald Trump himself last night but. I. Go ahead Andrew. Frank. What about I? Mean there were allegations obviously from both sides about corruption The president tried to go hard at several points against vice, President Biden in relation to his son and some of these. Reports or theories depending on. Where you stand about them and then of course vice president. Biden went back at at at at at the president about corruption to some degree or arguing that there was corruption inside his own administration. Did I either lay a hand on each other now because what what went on with hundred buying still never clarified Donald Trump was successful in raising the issue he wasn't successful in prosecuting issue is a big difference. So that our focus group participants, they still understand what hundred didn't don't understand the connection between. This connection between hunter and his father they wanted to know more they were upset. Joe. Bind. Didn't explain more but did change their votes. No. In the end I think that former trump voters and undecided because that debate I think they're gonNA come home but Donald trump needed to to radically change the condition of this race in eleven days the advertising do speeches won't do it. The rallies won't do it. The acts won't do it. So that, you gotta give trump a minor victory because he'll bring a few voters home and it will close the race a little bit. But in the end I think Joe Biden won the
The Ancient Ones
"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries I'm your host kit chrome. Today we're GONNA take a look at a mystery at mystery at least as deep as Amelia earhart. What happened to the honesty Indians? The honest are originally from Siberia during the Ice Age what became native Americans crossed over a land bridge it appeared because of the low sea level. The Ana Sasi tribe eventually settled in what is now era sonal well, maybe not how they were a native American culture flourishing in southern Colorado and Utah and northern New Mexico and. From about one hundred ad whose descendants are considered to include the present day puddle people I dug a little deeper and discovered that the name on a Sasi means ancient wants doesn't make sense. The Apache were given that name Apache by their enemy if it's true that the. Came over from Siberia or existed in what is now American southwest around one hundred ad as some speculate than it is doubtful that they would have called themselves the ancient ones but what's in a name and what happened to them? This was not some small tribe in the eighteen eighties when many of their dwellings were found on the face of Mason, they were dubbed cliff-dwellers. Many of the dwellings were over six hundred feet up and built into sheer cliff faces. Some were a dozen stories high and consisted of over eight hundred rooms. There were grain rooms rooms for dining rooms for sleeping today's and estimated that the on Sasi numbered about thirty thousand, one theory dates, their disappearance between six hundred and thirteen hundred ad again, what happened to them perhaps like the Mayans they migrated were simulated the Zuni, the Hopi Indians? Oh, today believed that theory one Hopi elder explained about a thousand years ago. The elderly reportedly said, the Pueblo was visited by savage strangers from the north. The villagers treated the interlopers kindly but soon, the newcomers devastate their farms and that is why they began to build their homes high up in the cliffs. Okay. That explains why they lived in cliff dwellings still what happened to them? Where did they go contemporary scientists think that life was pretty good for the ancient ones why then did they end up abandoning their magnificent agriculture and permanent homes to migrate hundreds of miles and seemingly lose their cultural identities and Hopi Land Suny. And the Pueblos the upper real `grande, oral histories of the Hopi Zuni Pueblo people as well as scientific findings suggest that the exodus from places like Jaakko and Mesa Verde may have been. Family by family or clan by clan and may have occurred over a hundred years. Scientists suggest that things like poor sanitation should pass. An environmental degradation may have caused on Sasi to move think for a minute of a cliff face village six, hundred feet off of valley floor with eight hundred rooms where the residents for maybe five hundred people where did the sanitation factor play out? It would have been an awful long descent to use a local capital unlike the hokum people to the south on a saas he did not build huge irradiation canals on a Sasi diversion and collection of national precipitation was not irrigation in the usual sense in general their dry land farming. On the natural blessings of rain and runoff melting snow often they helped mother nature by building check dams, terracing hillsides. So locating fields near the mouth of royals springs one of the largest of their water conservation efforts was a five hundred thousand gallon reservoir at Mesa Verde after poring over dozens of documents and stacks of books I realized that no one has come up with an answer of what happened to the thirty thousand plus on a saucy unlike a lot of ancient civilizations left scrolls and etchings on the walls on saucy left nothing. So where did they information? We have on these cliff waller's come from to Colorado. Cowboys are said to discover the magnificent cliff towel structure at Mesa Verde. On a bitterly cold day in December eighteen, eighty eight, the male members of the ranching family soon became amateur archaeologists, digging gathering selling pottery weapons, tools, and other artifacts mostly to museums even without formal training, they were able to identify major distinctions in the pottery they found and conclude that different sites were occupied during different time periods in the late twentieth century the melting of more sophisticated scientific techniques and contemporary native American Indian knowledge has dramatically increased. Our understanding these people for some time many scientists have gone about their business privately evaluating physical evidence and police seen theories about the long gone a Sasi scientific speculation about the mysterious disappearance of the builders of the cliff dwellings continued to the current era.

"Today we're GonNa talk about and you can ask questions if you want. I'll answer the best I can. I do not claim to be an expert in it. But we're GONNA talk about a project got going on right now in have had some on instagram. Got Enough people. Ask me about it in enough questions. Come up about it and I'm getting start to be a little bit proud of it in. I'M GONNA explain to you that what what I mean by that. But we're talking about a Sullen up and I say Solomona because I used to call it sauna and I was corrected quickly when it went to the. Up that it's not Sauna Sauna Asana. It's a Celena in so that was background on it is. I went up to your buddies place who has a fishing camp in the up. Beautiful little place at. Up is operatives in Michigan. If you're not familiar with it it's probably one of the most beautiful places in the world. I love it my wife. Our daughter and our dogs went up there last year and we did a fishing trip and so had a great time. There's a very big Finland dish culture up there and I would say half. But a great percentage of places up there have sonos and they take sonal and I didn't realize all that went into it and so my buddies plays has one and so we got done fishing and I literally we did it. We took sonar in. I've never slept so good in my life and so the reason when I left there I my wife and I talked about it and I said we have to have one so we decided we're GONNA get US owner in instead instead of buying one because you can buy them. You can buy kits for them. There's lots of different ways to do it. We were in a barrel SONA which is like literally a big barrel. I thought that was the thing I thought. That's what like Sono was because there are a lot of them up there. There's a place there that makes cal Kiana sonal company. They make these barrels. And that's what my buddy had. We drove past their place. The places right there off the highway we drove. Pass it so inspired by this thing because it changed my life and I say that kind of jokingly but not that jokingly it was just pretty amazing experience I slept so well and I felt so refreshing. I've never felt so clean. And all this stuff so. I didn't realize I have been in SONA before and I called it a sauna and when I was in a sauna I went in this little room. It was at a hotel. He was really hot and steamy. I went in there and sat in it for a while. Got Uncomfortable and then. I left and went. I just don't get it. I don't see what what this is all about. My people are so big on it while when I was up in the up got education on it and we talked with all these people up there about it and the author. It's funny that I didn't know anything about it hadn't really done this process before but so this process that we did was okay. We're going to prepare ourselves. You start the fire. It takes a while for it to heat up. You gotta get a bucket of water you got the water and there the water's going to warm up and then you're going to go in there and you're going to get in and it's GonNa be hot and you're going to get a little uncomfortable and it you start sweating profusely but it's dry heat. I mean it's hot. I think it was like one hundred twenty degrees in their tots uncomfortable and almost starting to question it in my one buddy was like you gotta go in here and you just don't think about anything else you just you forget about everything you just sit in here in you relax. And he's talking about. What kind of meditating and stuff and I don't do that so it wasn't sure what he meant but so we go in there and we sit and super hot and you get sweating and then all of a sudden he says okay now. We're going to go outside so we go outside and we sit on this deck on these little adirondack chairs that he's got and we look up at the stars and it's the most beautiful night in the. Up and cold were steaming. You hot. I'm swimsuit you can do it. Harvey One. I was in swimsuit. But we were all wearing swimsuits. Stuff and you literally sit out in the whole. It feels cold in your body. Goes Back Down so then we went back into the Sauna for cycle to and he's explained to me this but you don't really get it until you do it so you go in for this cycle and I think that time we added water to the rocks and all of a sudden now it starts to get steamy and the temperature actually came down because there's a little thermometer temperature came down but it felt ten percent fifteen twenty percent hotter like because all of a sudden now we put this this moisture in the air. It's felt really hot like in now. The sweats really rolling. And I'm going. Wow this is starting to settle into this. I'm starting to feel less uncomfortable and awkward starting to settle into this idea of just relaxing. So we're sitting there. Were drinking water. You know like especially at break drinking water because so much so now we're in there. It's a hot steamy nece now so we stay in there until it's almost unbearable. Okay now we go outside we sit back down on these chairs and we look at these stars and we just cool off in your body kind of comes back down and then we go. Okay now. We're going back in so we go back in for the third time again. We add water to the rock execute super steamy in there this time. He brought a tub of cold water in with him like a bucket of cold water. So we're in there. We're in this. These are all like about fifteen minutes cycles. So now we're in there. We've got cold water. Were Super Hot and sweating again and we decide in this is. We're going to do this on the third cycle so he takes bar soaps bar soap in there and he. He's he's about done my buddy so he soaps up like scrubs down with bar. Soap takes cold. Water takes hot water. That's been sitting there on the stove and it's hot like super hot scalding hot. And he takes. He starts adding cold water and hot water till he gets it to the perfect temperature for him and then he starts to dump this water on him and he washes up and he gets done out he goes and I. I wasn't quite done yet. Still kind of enjoying this heat and so I was in there for a little while and then I'm like all right. I'M GONNA do that too so I washed up. I get my temperature the way I wanted. I rinse down. I go outside. I sit down and I'm just like wow. There's quitting it. Took an hour search finish. Took born our and then it went to bed and slept really good so that was my experience. I didn't realize that there was so much involved with just taking the sauna in it. What I that I went. Okay now I need to study this so I came home convinced to have one and then I went online and I started watching youtube videos and I started read. There's a book out there called the opposite of cold and it's completely a documentary on Sona and its pictures and stories and songs from across the country and across the world and so I watched this little documentary video on that and then I watched all these different videos and then I watched how to build and then I realized because I had this little thing in my mind where I'm going to have to build a barrel sonal so I started searching all barrel Saunas. I started figuring out the materials deciding whether or not I should just by one or build one all these things in my mind figuring out what the best way for me to do it was and then I realized after watching a couple of different ones because I watched all these barrel sonus. Because that's what I was in. That's what I was. That's what I thought Sony was and so then I started watching these other things in realizing it's not the building that makes the Sauna. It's not the design of that makes us on those electric ones. There's would ones they're square ones. There's two story ones. There's double decker benches. There's single low ceiling ones. There's all these different variations. There's all these pictures of these old ones that I'm looking at in like over in Europe and there they look like little trapper. Shacks the cabins. There's a big problem with burning down because they're made of wood. The reason made of wood that everyone thinks Cedar Cedar Cedar. Everybody's Cedar Saunas Heater Song. We'll Cedar Saunas really regional because over here. We have Cedar and so in the UP. Get these Cedar Saunas. And you get northern Wisconsin and northern Minnesota. There's a lot of cedar around there. You go back over to Finland in your these European countries that have them. They don't use Cedar and I always thought had to be Cedar. It's not a Finnish Sauna. What's the use would they have? So it's not. It's nowhere near as rigid in strict as I thought. And instead it's very much the concept of SONA is very similar but the actual when you get down to it some people are making them out of Masonry Would people are making model of some people have them inside their house? Some people also their house. There's just all different options in varieties so I at that point decided. Now I'm really interested in it and I want to do it myself. And so how do I WANNA do it while I like old stuff? I like old buildings I like. I like reclaiming old would so I found an old barn old barn and I bought it in? I am when I say barn. It was sixteen feet by twelve feet so it wasn't really that big. It was used for livestock so I took it down. It's kind of like a log cabin. I save as much as I could. I moved back here. Okay now. I'M GONNA use this to build a song and then I realized that's just not gonna work so easily because those low not all the logs were good. I don't think I had enough logs to do the way I build it the way I wanted to so I had all these different thoughts and I had a slab poured in my backyard because I have a hot tub and we got rid of the hot tub in the slab is what I was gonNA use. It was ten by ten so that was my footprint. That was what I needed us so I had to figure out. How am I gonNA take the helmet build? This saw out of the stuff that I have or want to get and make it an inbuilt in my mind first and then figure out how to put it to actually building construction lies and all that stuff so I sat in on it for months thinking about it. What's the best way to do it? Well I drew it out and then I drew it out again and then I read. It drew it because I realized I wasn't GonNa have enough of this and then I drove by of old shed. That was for sale. I thought maybe I should just go buy it and turn it into a sauna and all these different things and I just. I was just was reluctant.
