Wonderful Wonderful Beautiful Lady she is what it sounds like. You know it all intents and purposes and I have many wonderful Christian friends and family that that are amazing. But for me I felt like there was a point in my life maybe was a certain age of coming to being where certain things just didn't make sense to me anymore or or I. Felt that I was being drawn in another way and I wasn't sure what that way was. It wasn't a rejection of something but more a seeking more something else something that that just was sort of calling to say. So I. Couldn't quite out what it was and I remember my mother had this shelves. Books From College. There's one book in Religions of the World Textbook as a as a good place to start as any. and. So it's just kind of like starting through going through all the religions of the world literally starting with animism and and native American religions which brought me back to thinking of my own heritage and things that we learned from our grandmothers are on tees than you know, herbs and prayers that are not in any books or dances, or you know traditions, words that that are that I. Thought were Spanish that are not for example, and I started going to college and learning about that learning about old medicine learning about all different not just my try all the tribes of the Americas and I really was a great and still is a great experience.

So of course, I was checking it out and and there are some things that kind of you know paying some interest for me but then again, it was a lot of. Things that weren't also clicking. So know go back to the book the Book of the word yet it again. kind of thumbing through it and I see Dow is and I'm like reading through it. It's very logical. It's straightforward. There is no puppet masters like. Extra beings, there's no like get off the pay money you don't have. There's no strings attached. It's cause-effect cause-effect cause-effect that if you do a long enough, be will happen if you one plus one is to the softest thing in the world can cut through the hardest giving with time things like that and that kind of really appealed to me it was very grounded and very focused than.

I don't think it's anything that could be a real resolved. I think when I songs you know. I. Just don't think you can really slow walk. Into your perspective and solve the we used to be able to.

The most involvement in itunes now they did I think a lot of is just because of the short attention span nature of our. Culture Society. I think you're right. I think you're right about that. Now you know and it makes me sad because I'll tell so. I remember I lived in Belfast Northern Ireland for a year. I don't know what ninety eight ninety nine. And the the the room. I lit the building I lived in. had one telephone payphone in the base in in the ground floor I was the only telephone in the whole place? Some if my parents wanted to call me from Toronto, they had to call long distance. And some Weirdo would answer the phone and they'd say. Hey is Michael from room three zero. Oh, one, three fourteen there that person would have to walk up the stairs to the eighth floor of was on the eighth floor or whatever action. What had an elevator? They could come up the elevator. They come to my room. They knock on the door. See if I was there. If I wasn't there, it would have to go back down to the phone. And they would have to say hey. Can I take a message for your? There's a chalkboard. And they would write a message in there. And so that year I had a I was no one had a computer. There was computer labs where you can go and do saint send emails, but mostly we were operating off mail. Letters. Okay! And so that year of my life I was able to. Just realizing right now. Just based on what you're saying. I got really deep into albums of music I would listen to albums over and over again different CDs because nobody bothered me didn't have anything else to do. There was only books to read. Write, and now my kids watch TV while they're on their phones. Watching a movie. And they're on those at the same time. Okay, you watch the movie. No. I can do both not really. Now. You can't do both actually. True sure I think like you know it's. Say That people all the time. They've got great multi tasking skills. There's only one you. and. If you're talking to people. Whatever that is makes you up. It's now splitting half. Dr Threes split the third and so on and so forth. And so the idea. Even when you're talking to somebody in doing, they're talking on the phone on listening. Here you. Listen. To save the here you don't. You're just like the heard. The call was by. More you're all. They're not really listening specifically to the contents of what your San. And it's easy to tell by the reactions I think so much. People. Here, music or the not listening. And if they hear it. To the point we're making earlier. They here in the friends are telling them that that's what they're listening to. Then, they'll take some time and actually listened. And they may or may not like it does not. Yet. Most people like we said multiple don't have the guts to give their true opinion on a like okay. Like you you show them. So I'm an art collector. Okay, I collect paintings, okay. And I'll go into an art gallery and I'll give I'll talk to the curators, and we'll talk about a painting what it means to me, okay? And, like quite frankly, I don't care you know if I'm going to buy a piece art from a guy and we're GonNa have a discussion about what it means and then discuss it. I'm speaking from my heart right so many people are afraid to do that or afraid to say I don't like that piece of artwork there. And I say well. Why not? Why do. I don't have a degree in art. Like I don't care about that or Reim- you don't need a master's degree in music. Listen a piece of music and tell me whether or not you like it or not. No, but but so many people won't do that. It's true. You're right through another other guts. They just don't and I were swimming somewhere between. The PC, culture! And who were a country you live? And we got this council culture going on. Me To with Dmitri things like that was decades for for some reason. But. But it's it's ruinous kind of culture and I think because people are so overly. Afraid of hurting people's feelings. that.

I certainly find that helpful reading readings of people that I find inspiring. What are the teachings that they offer? That's the Dharma and then the Songa. What is your community and I think that using those wreckages building those up in your own life can be incredibly helpful. A place to turn to when things are really uncertain now is the time when a lot of us are thinking about these larger existential issues and in the second part he really talks about some of those larger sort of issues of like timelessness of mortality of how we sort of see ourselves in the broader scope of the world.

When I first got to dress up it was so exciting but believe me the fascination in your response in that moment help me recognize that. We really are all in this together. We don't need the labels of the different denominations and even for those of us who don't feel like we fit in anymore Sunday church something is manifesting can be trusted we are participating in the unfolding story of the Universal Christ and these values what I appreciate. Richard is that these values give something of a structure to Orient to. I'm thinking of myself because I still don't quite fit into Sunday. Church life actually started attending as then Songa instead which same difference but that the vows give us a structure maybe a focus for for what community life could look like for what an alternative community could look like to live out these values universal Christ together.

Sir I was I was like you know a a highly sensitive child really intense kid and I would just kind of be up and I would be down and I would be up and down and just it very pushing pulled by my emotions. I mean yeah I really you do You know I think I was a lot to handle for my parents and my I remember. I remember being like ten or eleven than it. Just being having been in a puddle of tears a my bed and my dad was rubbing my back and trying to comfort me as as I as I recovered and you know and he said to me. Oh Hunter you know this is your artistic nature and life will always be like this. They pick me up there and he was right you know he. He's very much like that too.

Actually the first book I picked up Little Bit odd and strange I had my parents had a book of Like it was one of those little tiny mini books pocketbooks and that Shambala used to put out enda and it was like a Zen Cohen's but I didn't know I was just like. Oh this zen thing my pocket and I bike to my job After school where I had a lot of free time at this job and so I would read this like a Zen Koan book and it was very inscrutable and I was very confused but nonetheless. I persisted I found. I found the teachings of Han who eventually ended up practicing using the tradition for a long time and going on retreats there and And it gave me just reading. The books gave me so much lunch. Piece helped me feel hopeful that there wasn't something terribly wrong with me and And and then after about ten years of reading lots of books I find out and then it was really interesting because because Before then I would Kinda I would do yoga practice yoga and and then I could be in the present moment then I would go running and I would act. I would after a while you know in college I started a stopped listening to nine inch nails and Wu Tang clan while I was running in practice just being present while I was running. Not that there's anything wrong with those bands. It was great. You know. It's very Cathartic but anyway it was nice to be present as well my breath breath but then when I finally I I did a yoga teacher training than I was finally able to practice and I sat for ten minutes. A day for You know five or six days a week and and And despite kind of getting to the point a few months in whereas like this Mrs b side. Just sit here thinking the whole time. I'm not doing anything. I'm terrible at us. All of those thoughts. I realized that I hadn't fallen into those pits that I would had fallen into for twenty seven years of my life until then and it they they just kind of like went away not let the feelings went away. Those I still have a whole host of range as everyone does but that feeling of like I can't handle any of us and now I need to. You know I'm having a panic attack at work or whatever it was that went away and so it was this incredible. Will you know incredible transformation for me and it really. You know even me out in a way that just empowered me to do you so much. More it it. It really made a huge impact on my life so from the practice in that realization that Oh yeah. There's there's stuff that's happening even if I might not always be crystal clear and aware of An achievement today. She even unlocked still. Oh happening and you're noticing that so since that time. How did that progress for you well? It was helpful to know you know. Even if I don't feel like I'm doing this right there is there are these like effects that are happening. It was really powerful and since and that was that really empowered me I am. I found a Songa. I found a group nearby who practiced in the tradition of Han and a and and that fell was really satisfying to me. had grown up I- GROWNUP agnostic. And you know I was kind of like I was the kid who had no nothing and in this certain Catholic town I told I was going out. Why didn't I was like I don't know anyway? And so is really satisfy. The sense of like a also like a sense of community and a spirituality swelling and I had For me and and I really felt like wow this is great and then I I became pregnant two years after that and I was I remember really sitting with my big pregnant belly in the in the Songa the Oh man I got this like this. This is GONNA be loose. Zen baby this is. I'm doing three jobs look. I'm meditating on pregnant getting this baby this peaceful experience so so yeah so I had delusions and And then after that then the real learning. Wow so you had a baby and life. It happened no Magin. There are a lot of adjustments and you met practice. Maybe in a different way that lake. Well well Lo and behold. My child was a kind of intense highly sensitive child. Who WanNa thank you? It comes back get ya. I started to get. I remember at some points like apologizing to my parents. I'm sure they love that today. Gunman tell us more hundred tells. More really was the energy of my my grandmother than my father and myself and then this is a sensitive child and you know I had her in this This all natural birth centers free-standing bursts unders. I had all these the friends that now. Who are these wonderful? Crunchy Mama's not just seem so like there seemed so bliss to and I was like so struggling and my child was so fussy difficult and there was there was so much to learn there And it's really where you know. I really had to kind of Assam. My my my anger arise as she started to talk. Doc Back to me and walk and talk very very quickly. Resisted everything I said of course and and seeing I could just see these patterns like that were happening like here. It is again like oh my. Gosh here's my father's anger coming out again and it's coming through me. The and the thing I was I didn't want most in the world is now coming out through me and so it really became. You know I I became my teacher. You know just looking into these looking into these these things that were arising this anger. This is energy that I didn't want I wanted to push away desperately and realizing that that didn't work that it couldn't and so there was a lot an intense amount amount of learning to do and I also realized very very quickly that entered. Take time away from my child in order to be a better person for her. So you know it kind of building in these these pieces but but the real learning was like an seeing these patterns seeing these energies repeat and working working with them.
4 Things You Need to Know About Saga Cruises
"You're about to discover the four things you really need to know about saga cruises. I'm gary beverage. This is another of my tips so terrorism here onboard saga all the cruisers spirit of discovery in my cabin. And I want to share with you things that I think you really need to know about saga starting with this one solid cruise is part of the Saga Holding Group and they specialize in insurance and also regularly travels so escorted tours particularly they have two ships is in their fleet very modern fleet spurts of discovery. Which I'm on now? According this which was launched in twenty nineteen and spirit of adventure assistantship launched in twenty twenty it operates in the small ship category. They have nine hundred and ninety nine guests on these ships ten passenger decks. And it's all. Aw Balcony. Cabins Songa talks about offering boutique small ship cruising and what they mean by. That is the whole design and look and feel of the ship is quite contemporary modern inspired by not hotels particularly in London and small ship because it falls within the small ship category in industry by only having nine hundred and ninety nine guests secondly one of the critical things that I always like to look at when reviewing a cruise line is what they do. Unique or different to other cruise lines and soccer does a surprising large and in fact this seven things that I think they do differently first of all they are an adult only fifty plus the cruise line. The second thing they do is they focus on a very British experience. So everything on the ship. It's starring food the quizzes the entertainment rain meant the lectures even the passengers. It's very very bridge experience. And in fact if you WANNA come on a saga cruise the only way you can really book is through. UK agents or through UK Saga Saga does offer probably one of the most British of ord experiences that you can get cruising out of the UK. The other thing that saga it does and they win a lot of awards. Every year travel awards they win awards for it. which is they door to door? Vip Service so they basically will come and collect you from way you live bring you right down to the ship in Dover and then when you finish they will take you back to your hub. So it's very much a door to door service and the guests has to come on. Saga cruises love the fact that they met at the door and brought all the way to the the other thing which I think they cater for better than any other cruise whose line in the world is for Solo travelers. Twenty percent of the cabins on these new ships spurred discovery and the spirit of adventure also solo cabins. One hundred nine cabins are seller cabins so they catered enormously for Solo travelers. And it does mean that you don't have then all the big surcharges for double occupancy. So definitely I don't think there's any other cruise line that caters on the scale. As a percentage of their ship for Solo travelers something. Yeah I think they do incredibly well and they have lots of meet ups and ways of looking off to solid travelers once. They're on board the other thing which saga do is. They provide no-fly oh fly cruising out of the UK all year round. Most of the departures will be out of places like Dover. They do move to Southampton particularly the winter season but unlike like many cruise lines who move their ships out of the UK and head to places like the Caribbean Saga will sell all year round out of the UK. That's one thing that I think does make them. Unique and different. The whole fleet is based in the UK all year round another really interesting aspect to what saga does is. They will bundle insurance into the fair one of the challenges when you go cruising is the cost of insurance and getting making sure that you've got the right policy and also because saga does attract attract. Some older passengers sixty seventies and above getting travel insurance and cruise insurance can be a challenge so within their fair you can opt in to have insurance to cover. Cover your crews. I don't have any other cruise line that included within their fair. So it's definitely something unique and it's a real big plus another thing that they do pretty uniquely Sydney for the the category of ships that they operate in is their fares. Have a huge amount of inclusions compared to other cruise lines of similar standard solvency or combinations included oil foods included and that includes both the standard dining. So you in the main restaurant in the grill and the Verandah which are the informal dining but also so then all of the specialty restaurants have example onboard spirit of discovery. They have the club by Jews Holland. Which is the steakhouse? They have have east to West which is a real saga classic which is kind of Asian fusion food then have seafood restaurant called coast to coast on spirit of adventure. They're tweaking slightly highly. You still have the steakhouse you never Nepalese. And you're going to have an Italian so all of your dining is included afternoon. Tea Room Service is included. They use include wine wine and beer at lunchtime but all of your drinks are included in all the fares from twenty twenty as already mentioned. You got the transfer service and you've got the insurance. They also have a shuttle bus which runs into the towns. If it's not within easy walking distance that's included within the fair that's kind of a complimentary shuttle shuttle-service other cruise lines would often charge you for that other inclusions within the they include Wi fi now most cruise lines will charge you for Wi fi. Some of the very premium ones to be honest with you. I don't find the why particularly good on board The Times that I've been on board saga but it is definitely included. gratuities are included. And even if you go to the spar bar I was in charge any gratuities into SPA so no gratuities on top of your fair. That's included so the key extras that you're GONNA pay for is laundry okay. You'RE GONNA pay for that. You can use the guest laundry for nothing obviously do shopping. There's no casino on board if you some in the medical center and then excursions they are extra so the fares do include pretty much more than many other equivalent cruise lines. So thirdly what do saga do the same or worse than other cruise lines of a similar types of premium and cruise lines. Well first of all they offer a very traditional cruising experience not gonna find it particularly innovative or different. So it's going to have formal formal nights for example where you are expected to dress up so gentlemen Tuxedo Dockside Anti Ladies and sort of glamorous counts the activities and events on board are pretty traditional as well as you can have. Things like quizzes. Putting competitions trivia quizzes the production shows are very traditional styles. You can have view sort of review type shows. I think the shows for example are pretty standard to the rest of the industry then optically innovative in different. So that good quality descending passages enjoyed them a lot but sitting I found them pretty standard to other cruise lines so if you like production shows which are of the review type so for example they had some on board which looked at dance music through the decades that had another one focusing on Queen. Those types of shows pretty traditional. That's what you're going to get on board other other activities that they offer include dancing to live bands. which again is very consistent for a lot of British based cruise lines? They also have craft of classes. That have a dedicated craft class. That have a library stocked with lots of books. So it is pretty similar from many of the other cruise lines of its type in terms of the Status Ah type of cruising experience. It's not particularly different cruise experience. So if you like traditional cruising you certainly would like the saga experience the facilities ability. He's on board. The ship are again pretty traditional for cruise ships. You can find the usual things. Spa Fitness Center Pool Selection of bars. And lounges although in fact one of the largest which I think is kind of different very special is the large but overall the facilities are pretty standard for other cruise cruise ships of its type. The other thing which I think is pretty similar is food. The food on board is great but of course all premium lies tend to have really good food. There's lots of choice always big menus good quality food but I would say it's pretty consistent with other cruise lines of that type of you paying us a premium crusade. Expect good food and you'll find it on saga and they certainly have the choice because they have different specialty restaurants but I'd say all the Food City matches and as good as other premium lines like other premium Siemian cruise ships cruise ships as a wide range of accommodation. But what's very important is. They're all balconies so is also a plus but you can get everything from sweets down to sorta balcony cabins so there's a wide range of cabin types like there are on other cruise ships the thing which they also probably do a little bit worse than other cruise lines is making it. Easy for international guests come on board. They're very focused on the British cruise. Up and it's very easy if you live in the UK to Gonzaga crew's coming from another country so you're Australian or from the US. It's a little more difficult because they don't actually sell those actively in the country so you me to work with an agent which can connect with saga in the UK. They can make all the arrangements they can do flights and do all the arrangements to get you into the UK but it they don't make if that easy so you do have to deal with saga or an agent in the UK that deals with saga. So that's one thing they probably make a little bit more difficult. Because if you WANNA cruise norman other cruise lines you'll find it very easy to make bookings online directly with a local site so who is saga best for us. I mentioned you need to be an adult change. Be over fifty or one of the people in the Party needs to be fifty to come saw crews so it's only no kids and you do tend to find. The profile is on the higher side and of course it depends a little bit on the cruise and the length of crews and time of the year. So you will find a lot of people in the sixty seventies and even in their eighties onboard a saga crews also. You need to be someone who loves a very British experienced lights traveling with lots of British travelers. It's going to be pretty much. All British cruises loses onboard and the experience as discussed is going to be very British from the food the entertainment so if you really craving looking for a great experience you'll find it on board. It's very very good. If you're a solid travel as I've mentioned they also do have cabins for people with accessibility needs and are very good at dealing with people who have accessibility needs on on the ship and also when it comes to ranging excursions so those types of travelers will find saga a good option in my view. Saga is a very interesting line. It's a small small line at a very British focused line and it has really big strong loyal following. Hopefully that's giving you some
A Meditation Coalition, with JoAnna Hardy
"Hi Buddhist Geeks. This is Emily Horne. And I'm here today with Joanna Hardy and I'm really excited about being able to Speak with Joanna today and then share this with you all. She's been Dharma sister for many years. Now and we're in the same lineage so to speak and I look forward to Exploring that a little bit with you all here with her today. So we studied in the insight. Meditation tradition and she's a teacher authorized teacher in that tradition. She teaches at spirit. Rock insight Meditation Society and then she has her own thing called meditation coalition which. We'll get into as well so welcome. Joanna Kai Cadaver near. Thank you So I wanted to start to spend a little bit about how he met. Because for some magical reason you know we can make a million reasons about things are pads started. How long ago was that ten years ago now crap about ten years ago about right and we met an auspicious kind of situation. At least that's the way that it felt for me because we were at a A local Dharma teachers gathering an La and Ken Macleod and there were several Dharma teachers. They're not hadn't met you yet. And at that particular gathering I was working in my personal practice with embodiment of in working on it for a long time now. Still working on it And at that particular time Ken Macleod was really trying to point to what it felt like when we were really really present in our bodies and how that stability and that calm steadiness of heart mind can empower us to be able to move in the moment in a different way and I wasn't really understanding what he was talking. What he's trying to explain them on a experiential level so he decided that he was going to do a ceremony in the back yard. You remember this. Oh yeah and I hadn't ever met you and he's like emily grab a sword and the sword was literally like a similar sort. It was huge and heavy and we went to the backyard. There was Vince. Was there my husband? Bends and Matthew Bronze Silver and you and Kim mccloud is whom I remember and it was interesting because Matthew run silver and you both ended up being on our teacher training the spirit rock teacher training that we did together. So I didn't know this at the time. This is going to appear later in my life so our first show was in the backyard with his big sword and the ceremony that Ken Macleod was sitting on and he handed you the sort. I from what I remember correctly. Yeah handed you the sorn. And then he made it into the ceremony thing. Where you're supposed to hand me the sword and you handed me the store and then I had to swing it and it was heavy it was heavy and I remember swinging it and like following a little bit to the side and then swinging it again and bowing to the side but the whole time that I was doing this like you were standing and just watching me and your presence and the way this was all happening. It was like you knew how to be there. You really knew how to be there. And it was like sister sister and I just felt that so strongly from you and I didn't even know how to put words on it and so probably about a year later when we ended up the teacher training together and we ended up assigned to the same room sleeping across from each other. And I'm like okay. What is this Dharma? What is this Dharma and that runs over? He was in the teacher training too so he. So this whole like little Karmic pod under this is Buddhist terminology You know it's been very interesting between you and I wanted to acknowledge that everyone because lately for me. Dharma has taken on this Mystery component and the levels and the layers of connection when the Dharma Shrines through is just pretty in some ways a magical and I wanted to highlight that for everyone. So thank you for being a part of that Sounds so good to rehear it again. Yeah backyard that dark backyard underneath the stairs even learning how to be president with each other in that moment and so since then though you have gotten into all kinds of things and one of your new projects are I. Don't even know if he would frame as a project But one of your new endeavors is the meditation coalition and I was really struck by coalition Why did you choose chief that yeah? Sadly the meditation coalition came out of the disillusions meant a dissolving of another Songa that I've been a part of for twelve years against the stream and a big part of what many of us realized with against the stream as we'd fallen into a pretty intense pattern that a lot of songs do where there's a founder and with that founder can come an intense imbalance of power and so we were really working on at against the stream with our founders syndrome issues And really trying to create a true equity in The Teachers Council on the board and also within the people involved in the community and it was it was difficult. We had a really hard time. Because it was so deeply AB- structurally embedded this power imbalance. That it really did take a lot of work. A lot of energy to effort into changing it and it didn't work. It ended up backfiring on all of us so the meditation coalition after. You know after against dissolved. I we a lot of US had to mourn deep lake. There's a lot of sadness and grief in this longtime relationship Asanga but one thing I knew for sure was I really wanted to do my best to work on a structure that didn't have these power inequities these power imbalances And didn't have a quote unquote founder guiding teacher or any kind of lead person at this group of people teachers facilitators Songa members community members. Other communities other organizations could come together do things together and then kind of go apart right so kind of coming together for events coming together for classes using different locations using different websites using different network systems using different mailing lists and having sort of like these fingers. You know think of it sort of like as a Dandelion Regis blow on it and all of these seeds are go out there and so the cold the word coalition from my best understanding is where organizations people things come together for a specific moment and then they go apart and then the comeback together in different form in a different way and then they go apart and so how we have sort of stated it is that we all have responsibility to the coalition so anybody. That's facilitating group needs to make their own flyers. Right they need to find their own location. This location has to be accessible to all bodies and these locations are all over the greater Los Angeles area so that there isn't the expectation everybody comes to one central place but we kind of have we go to the communities that we serve versus the communities having to come to us

"songa" Discussed on KIRO Radio 97.3 FM
"Kiro. Radio realtime traffic. I'm Tracy Taylor. Click a cat county sheriff Bob Songa. He's one of the latest law enforcement officials joined some other counties and cities like Republic Washington saying they will not enforce the rules around is sixteen thirty nine which is speaking as the gun owning contingent of the candy, Mike and Todd show a law that is almost universally despised as unconstitutional and will be ignored it. It puts a lot of details around the ownership and sales of semi automatic rifles like the common hunting rifle and the dreaded AR. Fifteen candy undermined this what in your opinion is in. I sixteen thirty nine. Well, mostly it was approved by statewide voters in November. You do have to consider that in his argument the age limit that is a problem. So with the age limit locking up your gun. How are you going to enforce that? That's this other side of it. And then the background checks inch. That's purely based on who's going to do all those background checks. There's a lot. There's a lots of the background checks, and it's going to a lot of staff time, it's going to create a delay in getting the guns. Can I just break this down a couple of different ways? Because I want to make sure that this gets across I owned guns, and I own a gun safe. And it's a great big gun safe in every house. We have we securely store guns. And I firmly believe if you own firearms, you choose not to lock them up you're being negligent and you've been foolish and you being selfish. So I'm going to get that across the problem with this is no one's going to sneak in your house to make sure you got it locked up. Secondly, at flips the script someone breaks into my house and steals, my car, and then run someone over I'm not going to be held criminally liable. Even civilly liable for that. But if they get access to my gun, and they go kill some honor God for God forbid, kill someone or kill themselves. Suddenly it flips the script, and I'm responsible when I didn't do anything wrong. I legally owned the weapon so to see the sheriff say I'm not gonna I'm not going to enforce this. I guess it's just joking. You think it's just another form of sanctuary? So maybe this is the new era where we have law enforcement officials kind of pick and choose the laws they enforce what about rise the raising the age to purchase a semiautomatic rifle. So it's it's eighteen now they say it's going to be twenty one useless why because it's not going to do anything because you raise the age one size fits, no one doesn't do anything. If you raise the ages, lots of other ways to get guns. But Secondly, you can be killed just as dead with a pistol. Right. If we're really wanna help here's where I focus on focus on first gang violence because it's predictable. It's been areas, you can do things like us racketeering laws. You can use things like they're not paying their people. Minimum wage the cartels. No, I'm serious. Do the do the alka. Poland thing make it difficult. Go make life stink for them. But these things are driven largely by these mass shootings. None of the mass shooting folks to date have been a gang member. Mike, and I'm not saying the art, and it shouldn't be the focus the school shootings. Let's go where this shootings are predictable and far more people getting killed. If you go through the school shootings each of these people had interactions with law enforcement, multiple occasions to stop them. I just don't believe that saying to a twenty one year old you can't purchase a semiautomatic rifle necessarily saves lives. Maybe one or two, and that's great except it comes at the cost of also being an unconstitutional law because it did not contain the Fulcher clear and complete text to the measure. I like laws that are constitutional. That's just me. What about enhancing the background? Check to do what you were saying take the steps ahead of time before the person gets the gun to do harm, which is enhancing, the background check. If a red flag comes up so find it we've had background checks like and parkland by God. I couldn't have had more background checks. There are some forty eight interactions with that kid. And you know, what part of this is so tragic for him. And I do not I do not I do not have to carry water for him. He's a murderer. And he's a coward. I won't see his name. But I think part of him was saying with some we'll get a put a limit on me and stop me. Right. So I look if we can get serious about mental health and outreach and preventing people from being around guns, which is taking them out of society. Let's do that. So the firearm safety course because you are a safety guy. Yeah. I'm safe the guy, and I and I've taken them and I've taught them, but that's not going to stop murders. Right. If you teach someone how to be safe with a gun. It's not gonna stop murders. Icee do triage, we know where the murders you're going to be committed. It's going to be.
"songa" Discussed on Tony the Movie Guy
"Perfect. So we're out Star Wars. There's so many. Did yours anyway. But yeah, I mean, John Williams, he's I think he's the godfather of music composition for film, especially years. He is he's he's he's definitely a crazy amazing. All right. Your turn my friends. This is fun. There will be blood Jonny Greenwood from Radiohead. That's a great choice. I am not the biggest fan at the movie. The score is incredible. It's haunting. No again. I just think it's just really. An unexpected score. You know, I love going into film and noticing the score Nana bad way, especially from like an alternative artist. You know, he's a terrorist. Right. Exactly. No. Yeah. He's the scores that he does are are really well written and really well orchestrated. Just you know, it doesn't sound like a guy from a rock band doing a score. You know? He does his homework. He really puts a lot of work into it stage for me because you do composition. So like you have a movie like the sequence the sequence where the oil rig explodes. Exactly. And he's running to the candidate. Like as a and I'm not saying put yourself in his feet of how he did that seem but some kind of action or dramatical sequence that like again, this is going to tell stupid. I actually don't even know how do you write music for four that especially when it's like not just like a lot of IRA Songa and things, but it's like all these like what what would your process be? But I'm genuinely fascinating..
"songa" Discussed on Duncan Trussell Family Hour
"You're not it's not going to be the same reason as you continue to move down this pather when you begin. So you might come you might you might find some group or Songa sought song. And there might be some really lonely sense in you, or there might be just a you don't even know like you're on ambient, and you're sort of blundering or sleepwalking. But there's a a real sense in you something a kind of longing. I guess you could say a kind of homesickness you could say the most perplexing sort of homesickness though. Because in this case, the home sickness is like you can't really figure it out because you're like, wait. What am I finding for? Why am I feeling homesick right now, my home was when I was a kid I had a home when I was like between the ages of two and six or eight or before things went south if you had a crazy home, or whatever you think your childhood into. That's how. A lot of people identified that. Oh that was home, and they don't realize ONA. No. You think the physical surroundings around you where your home, and you think the family members where your home, and then you think that the particular conditions where your home, but this is no different than somebody who experiences some kind of joy. And then instead of understanding the joy that they're experiencing is contact with the truth looks around and things. Oh, it's when I walked under the tree, it's when I sat in this place. It's when I did this particular tap dance move when I was like, and this is this is part of the formation of the identity is that you begin to try to recreate the surrounding conditions where you're contacting truth. And now you start repeating the patterns of your childhood, and for some people, this is devastatingly horrible. So they start trying to recreate the chaos and people say, oh, you're trying to recreate the chaos because that's what you were a bitch awaited. Growing up. But really you're trying to recreate the chaos because you were fresh out of heaven so to speak fresh out of Seoul in and you're trying to make your you're trying to get back to that thing that we all youth in our people call youth. They're being young. Yeah. Well, you rather call home before you got that identity going. I mean by the time that you apparently by the time you recognize your parents, and siblings, etc. That's when the feeling of mine comes into it. Right. Right. And before everything before that is just everything is it just is. There's no separation right? We're not living in separation. We're living in that Seoul land place that just is. And and your analogy there of the joy of walking under a tree in a moment. That's home. That's the is place. Yeah. Any one of those moments? But then suddenly that's before. And now, it's divided into mine, and yours, and that's when everything goes way, south that six months old. It just goes off the end of the cliff at that point. And and so..

"Thousand three we'll expand my muse money by John truly Budi Lucious. It's like it's like not long ago that it's like novel like nostalgia. Write this song. Like the way the nineties is now or the and it's not current enough that you're like excited. It's like, let's get it started. Songa ever play jazz are so bad, and we're such huge hits. And it's fucking crazy. Yeah. Surely, let's get it started is one of them. Also because of its original believe it was ever. Yeah. It's pretty offensive. Can we talk about your under eye? Just because you emailed me about it. And I'm so catty you do. Not notice it. Okay. So there's this little thing happening. And you know, when it started happening. Remember when you were on those trees asked you about putting coconut oil on my face. Oh my God. You've ruined his is. No. Because I then I started to notice I felt like I was kind of breaking out like around my eye on here, and my eyes lately have been very itchy. And I don't think maybe I'm tired, maybe. But like, it's just weird. It's like irritation itchiness and a little bit of redness to the point where I use cover up almost every day because I have this thing on my nose right here. It's a cyst. I apologize in the makeup chair as well. Are you going to get cut off or something? I'm getting. Moved. But I have to hit a rhino plastic remove why it's so deep in see. Yeah. It was a scar. I didn't think it was hosting sist. I thought you had like a mole removed or something. I was born with this born this way. Yeah. And it's it's basically like it was a problem when I was like nine or ten and we thought let's get removed. But also, we we're going to try not to 'cause we don't wanna like irreparably damage his nose while it's while growing. So we waited and then it got fine. And now again over the past year and a half. It's it's getting irritated. And sometimes we'll get like this is gross. But it's natural. It will get a little infected and and it gets very red. Yeah. And so now, it's like my doctors my plastic surgeon is like we should get removed. Not because it's in any danger to you. But just because you're on camera. And it's something that you know, if you get a scarred you're going to have to get the scarf anyway. And also because of its in your nose your nose, very close to your brain. Like if something were to get really, we're never. Never hear that your noses. Number six. No rain. So can I can I positive theory about your is though. Yeah. So you moved semi recently can jet last like a year ago, but. I. I was gonna say like did you change your detergent on your case? Are you? Are you washing? Your pillowcase doesn't have to be something on your face. It could be something you're eating it could be you know, what I mean? It's something in the environment. I'm now trying to trying to think if I've like changed my change anything. No to be honest with you. I think I think that it might be the fact that I was using that coconut oil, right, right? I haven't I don't know. It's a little weird. Do you know what I'm what? What see a little redness from here. But yeah, nothing that I would be alarmed by bus next year. So, you know, for sure see it it sometimes it'll be just like a little red or dark dot like around my eyes. Also might just be sunspots to heavy wondering if it's on your face right now. I don't use anything on my sunscreen, no, fix your white..
"songa" Discussed on The Tennis Podcast
"Yeah. So day one at the Davis cut by BNP para bar final has come and gone, and it has gone completely the way of curry share an absolute landslide in their favor. After the first two rubbers of the day. First of all we've had born church defeating Jeremy shoddier, France. And then it was married Chile turn, and he also defeated Joe Wolford Songa so six sets out of six and it was noisy at times. But Matt Roberts who's over there inside the stadium thing which which was noisy. It's not noisy anymore. It's not no. It's just me. And the guy watering the court at the moment. And yes a few hours ago. This was bouncing with Croatian support. And the French set of filed their way out rather rather miserably at the end because that is an absolute thumping today that the French didn't even break serve. That's how that's how comprehensive it was. That's rather different Catherine with to to the scene that you would describing exactly a year ago because I think it was one all wasn't after day one last year. It sounds like it's it's an immense. Contrast similar. I'm sure I'm sure that we have any impact on how loud the crowd cheer tomorrow will then stay if the day three is even in play. Which is I think I'm expecting France to take a point in the doubles tomorrow. But it's very far from gimme very very far. From that say there is now a chance that this could be a three. Three of win for for Cratia, which I think I think neutrals probably prefer that it wasn't. But yeah, there's no there's no other way to describe today than than thumpings six in sets. I mean, yeah. No breaks of serve. No, no, real moments in either match were you ever really thought that that either shoddy. You also were were we're going to mount challenge serious ones. I had lots of thinking today if Yannick Noah even night, not that there's anything. I mean, it's it's obviously he's putting him for the doubles thinking in terms of decision making just chew upon. I think it was you who said the this has the feeling of a mismatch this tie at the moment. And actually until you said that last night. I was I've been looking at the lineup and thinking, oh, you know, it's on French soil, and they've got Songa, and they've got this depth. Got this great doubles team. I think it could be pretty close. I I would make Cratia favorites because of their to number one players, but you pretty adamant that point. And then when when I started to dig down into the detail of avoid that might be in and the lack of activity of Songa, and and the the decision to shoddy and ahead of Luca, Capri, and etc. Cetera. I definitely came around by the end of the podcast to to be more in your camp. Was it when you were out there when when the teams came out did it quickly become a feeling of that ilk? Because I watched what was interesting to me was watching the anthems. And I I feel that you there's nothing quite like Davis Cup anthems. And and the contrast between the two teams was so stark he'd got Cratia who weren't even singing along with their national anthem. They were they weren't. There were barely. Acknowledging it they was stone faced and then you've got the French team. You got Nikola who crying in floods of tears and the rest of them were belting out the French national anthem. And then suddenly all went flat. Didn't it yet? Did I must say first of all Lamar say is is just the most brilliant national anthem. I I learnt the words to it for a school for school trip. We went to watch France play in the six nations, and we spend all day school chips better than mine. Well, it was actually it was actually a school trip to see A Malia play with a reprimand tacked onto the end. It was very good. But I went school camping down the local field. But the story is that we were so late into the stadium. We miss the national anthem. So learning the words proved to be fairly pointless. But on this occasion, I was in the stadium and court Lemercier, and it really does have a rousing impacts on the stadium..

"Marine you look hacked by stay away from the frozen foods y'all i think it's important for my kids to hear that then i'm attracted to naureen so the most important thing about this guy's he gets the power words he understands on breathing life into this woman who has been burnt by the sun and feels her selfesteem israeli low and eventually he builds that self steam up by specifically using the power of words to counteract culture and to make her feel beautiful eventually you get the spouse you deserve why you create them now from a female perspective i'm going to be my wife naureen who i'm sure right now israeli risk gap awesome and i'm sure she's versus my now she would a mary the accountant but hey i said what we want to talk about two is let's take a look at the female perspective what's so unusual now wasn't unusual in this near eastern literature to have a male perspective of the female body and to have that be very detailed but what was unusual to have the females perspective of the male fact there are only a few instances that they've found where it is the female voice speaking in this type of literature but usually it's pointing out man's achievements and his maybe his abilities as a warrior or some kind of a leader not necessarily focusing on his body so the passage we're going to look at is the bride's version about assertive as she goes through headtotoe her perspective of the man's body so we're gonna look at songa solomon chapter five.
