"Hi. My question is about the COVID vaccine. Yes. I'm sorry. I personally have never gotten any of the shots ever. I'm surprised I've even made it this far. Just because of how new it is and everything. But because it's become so polarized, what would your advice be about when to trust the vaccine safer if I have future children, especially since it is mandated in like some parts of our society? It's a really good question. Um, I'm by no means an expert. But I will say this, if you're a parent, you need to make an informed decision. Understand everything in life is a risk. Everything in life has a risk with it. Not vaccinating comes to the risk. Your kid could get whooping cough. That's a real risk. But also taking the Tdap vaccine comes to the risk that they won't tell you. So you have to have and you have to weigh both together. So I'm not going to get into that because I'm by no means an expert. But there's a lot of literature out there that has been banned and censored that makes some pretty compelling cases that there have been more adverse events to vaccines and more side effects than popular media would ever lead you to believe. What the extent of that I do not know. But here is what I am most suspicious about from pattern recognition. The ferocity and the silencing that the pharmaceutical companies tied in with the media and the social media use to silence anybody that asks questions about vaccines is very suspicious because it feels as if there is a profit seeking agenda that is above actual the health of the American people or the health of our children. And I will say this, that there are way too many vaccines on the child vaccination schedule. There are way too many vaccines.

"Yeah, not a lot of people applaud that. You shouldn't applaud that. Yeah. Yes. Yes, ma'am. We'll do a couple. We'll get to the line. Yeah. Hello, Mr. Kirk. My name is Carly Hanlon. I want to say thank you for being here first and foremost. At another school, the one I was at before this, I was often told that God is not real and I even had a guest speaker come in and say that Jesus is, in fact, Satan. I've always been very firm in my faith, but many of my peers after that talk faltered in their faith. So my question is, is how do you stand firm against the people who tried to stomp on you and twist the truth, especially about your religion? Was that a religious school that you went to? No. Okay, good. That would be really something. Look, you have to be strong and courageous, as in Joshua 1-9, right? And one of the most important things that we as believers need to do is understand that the results are God's, but the obedience is ours. And that expressing our faith, regardless of how hard it is, is our moral obligation and a duty to the divine. So when someone says God is not real, honestly, you should just play with them, right? Which is you say, look, without God, there would be no atheist. Drives them crazy, right? When you say that. And I got a lot more than that. But look, if you want to go on the atheist part of it, Augustine's proofs for God are the best. Aquinas' proofs for God are the best. But more than that, some people will not be won over to God just on reason alone. They have a hardened heart. They do not want to acknowledge that there is a power above them and Almighty that breathed them into existence, that they want to be God, and they want to be in charge of their life, and they do not want an eternal moral standard or structure above them. So it's up for you to witness the best you possibly can. Witness with truth and love and understand that it's not your job to win all of them over. It is your job, though, to present the truth and allow the truth to work on them or they're going to harden their heart and reject it. Be strong in your faith. God bless you. Thank you. Thank you. Hey, Charlie, how's it going? Good. How are you? You know, I'm doing pretty good. Thank you for asking.

Thanks to a major influx of government funding, CSX, a major class one railroad, and Tacoma Rail, a short line railroad in the Pacific Northwest, will benefit from the federal Consolidated Rail Infrastructure and Safety Improvement Program grant to help replace high -polluting locomotives with zero emission switchers. For CSX, the funding comes via the Maryland Department of Transportation in the amount of $11 .6 million to replace the company's switchers in the Port of Baltimore. The railroad will provide a 50 % funding match for the $23 .2 million project. These three new battery electric locomotives will be the first zero -emission locomotives to operate at an Coast East port. In Tacoma, a $4 .1 million grant will replace two nearly 60 -year -old diesel electric switchers with new battery electric locomotives.

"Hi Charlie, thanks for being here. I fell for the college scam when I was in my 30s, and for the past decade have found myself working in the tech sector. And I just wanted to know what you thought about us staying in that sector and planting where, grow where we are planted, or should we try to reskill and connect to the Patriot economy? Wow, that's a great question. I don't know the answer for you, I can see it both ways. Grow where you are planted, I like that, I'm going to use that, that's really smart. We need a lot of conservatives in tech, we are, there's a brain drain right now of conservatives in the technology field. It all depends on whether or not you feel as if you're advancing your values. For example, if you work for Salesforce, probably not a good idea, you should probably cut bait, because Mark Benihoff is a card-carrying Marxist communist Stalinist. I don't work for Salesforce, but I'm a Salesforce administrator. Oh well, I guessed right. So I saw your segment with Michael Siefert last week, so I'm really excited about that. I happen to pick on Salesforce a lot, because they deserve it. And so, not a good company. Only you know the answer to that, but the question is, do you feel as if you're moving the ball forward for your values? I don't. Well then, you know the answer. Okay, do you have any advice on how to get connected to tech leaders in the Patriot economy? Yeah, Public Square is a great way, right? PublicSQ.com, you guys got to all download the Public Square app, they're amazing, right? Aren't they great? And in addition to that, just make yourself available. If you have tech talent, you will be hired. There is such a need in these tech conservative companies to find people that share their values. And so, make your, you know, send your resume around. Find Michael Siefert, he could definitely, you know, Public Square has kind of become in this one-stop shop for entrepreneurs and businesses. It's amazing. So, happy to help with that. Thank you. Thank you. Appreciate it. All right, we'll do a couple more. And again, if you disagree, we'll get, we'll try to get through. Yes, sir. Good evening, Charlie. I'm assuming my question is not going to gain me a lot of popularity with both Republicans and Democrats. That's the best kind of question. My name is Chase Boggs. I was an infantry marine who was discharged due to the vaccine mandate, and then I worked for a Republican in U.S. Congress after that. So, we agree on a lot, but we disagree on one key topic, I would say. With every projection pointing to a Trump primary victory and Trump repeatedly claiming a stolen 2020 election, which I agree with him on, how can Trump supporters be optimistic about a 2024 general election and be certain that the same thing won't happen again since no federal election integrity reform has taken place and Trump hasn't given us a reason as to why the outcome will be any different? Doesn't it seem like Trump's campaign is just playing along with the system that they believe is rigged against them without expecting a different result and without giving a reason why the result will be any different? It's kind of the definition of insanity. Okay, that's a pretty good question. Yeah, I mean, I have, Georgia minorly fixed their laws. Wisconsin had some good decisions for Mark Zuckerberg drop boxes, but not nearly enough, nearly enough has not been done. So, I mean, what certainty can I give? Just one sec guys. Okay, great. So, what, please let us guys. The censorship is a little better than before. I can say that. We have Twitter. Now we're allowed to say what we want on Twitter. So, that's one good thing. Last time we weren't able to do that. It's not X, it's twitter.com. Okay, this whole X thing drives me crazy. I'm still not adopting it. It feels weird. The whole thing is very bizarre, right? I don't like it. I don't like it at all. I call it Twitter and I always will. It's like the Sears Tower in Chicago. I still call it the Sears Tower. It's not the Willis Tower. I will die on that hill, okay? Anyway, and it's like Comiskey Park in Chicago. It's not US Cellular, it's Comiskey. Any Chicagoans you know exactly what I mean, right? So, censorship is better. So, there's some laws in Wisconsin or Georgia better, but I think you're making a good point that they still control voting systems and we have not nearly reformed enough of it nor launched the proper lawsuits. And do you think RFK has a potential to blow the whole system apart? No. RFK has the potential to get Joe Biden another term. And I have been one of the few people that believes that RFK helps Joe Biden far more than he helps Trump. And the answers follows like if you go around this room, I bet more people have a positive opinion of RFK than a negative opinion. That's changing now that you're learning that he's a liberal Democrat and that he wants reparations, gun control, and all sorts of stuff. But with RFK, he communicates to low trust voters. Donald Trump also communicates low trust in government voters. So does Donald Trump. Joe Biden runs a high trust in government type campaign. So, yeah, RFK at its current trajectory could end up giving Joe Biden another term. Thank you.

"Do you have any fear that the solution might be worse than the problem? What solution? Sure. Some. Yeah. Yeah. Like, for example, mandatory electrical vehicle, electric vehicles. No, electrical vehicles will mine the ocean to death before we get everyone electric car. It's not. Well, I will. Yeah. I mean, that's also cobalt's really, really bad for the environment. Yeah. We need to go car free and build walkable communities again. Actually, that's a very bad idea. Now. Now. Now we're getting somewhere. OK, bad idea. Cars are freedom. Right. Without a vehicle, you are a captive of the government in an open air prison. Right. And so just look at San Francisco. It just means you can walk to the grocery store without needing a vehicle. Right. That's a 15 minute city model. But no, this is important. And we're not going to. I've been studying architecture for four years. I've been studying a little bit urbanism, urbanism, too. Right. It's not taking away your freedoms. The fact that you get to go to a grocery store and a library and a coffee store within a 15 minute walk, folks. OK. That's actually independence from the automobile. But that's independence is being able to go where you want to go when you want to go there. That's what independence. But let me just let me we're not going to find. Here's the one thing that I want to make sure I don't get this from you because you're coming at it from a good place. The panic over climate becomes such a priority by people that also have the solution in mind. I'm not saying it's you. Right. It's fair. And so we have a built in healthy skepticism over the last decade that we are being constantly lied to by the same amount of cabal of criminals. And at the very least, exaggerating the threat. OK, exaggerating the threat where we are told we must take our freedoms and liberties away. We must reconfigure our life. And I'll be very honest with you that with all of the pressing challenges that face humanity, like the most suicidal generation in history, the most drug addicted generation history, the most alcohol addicted generation in history, the fixation on an abstraction of rising global temperatures is an academic distraction from real material suffering that people have when the activists, not necessarily you, but the loudest activists, AOC, Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Bernie Sanders, they want to get rid of fossil fuels. They want to disenfranchise millions of people of work, of work, and they want to basically put the entire grid at an unrealistic solar wind and turbine type model. Mr. Kirk, you sound so much like the liberal coastal elites that you rail against, because the reality is the first year that my family bought cows 2012, we had a record breaking drought and hay had to be trucked in from Oklahoma or Texas the following spring. It rained so hard and so much it broke records and the bridges washed out and my mother couldn't get to work. So this is very much a real issue. Let me ask you, in the last 50 years, have there been irregular weather patterns in the 60s, 70s or 80s? Yes, I hate I would just close with this. You could talk to any rancher or farmer here in Missouri. Unpredictability is part of the agrarian lifestyle, to act as if you could perfectly model it. But here's the one thing about climate change that drives me crazy, and I'll just close with this, is that no matter what happens, it gets warmer, it's climate change, it gets colder, it's climate change, if it's tornado, it's climate change, if it's sunny, it's climate change. It's the one thing that confirms the hypothesis regardless of the result. And so it's the perfect thing to argue for. You might be right, I don't think you are, that rising global temperatures are necessarily tied to human activity. But every solution I hear, every solution would obliterate the American economy and destroy our ability to use our greatest asset with his fossil fuels, natural gas, liquid natural gas and oil. Thank you so much. I gotta get to the next question. Thank you.

"All right. My first question would go toward your comment on taking out Ehan Omar. Now, she has issues. I agree with everybody here on that. But how do we keep a balance of letting people in who are passionate about our country will also keep an open political discourse alive? OK, just say the last part again. I'm sorry. The main question is, how do we let people in who are patriotic about this nation, but also have an open political discourse with multiple viewpoints, even if they are Ehan Omar's? So how do we let people in with multiple viewpoints? Yeah, without letting multiple viewpoints, without undermining our own nation, yet. So doing immigration in a say in a sane way would be helpful. Right now, we should put all immigration on pause and stop. But we've got way too many people in this country way too quickly. It's like eating three big meals. You got to let it digest. OK, we got to put the American citizen first. But if we were to reopen immigration, the first question is, how will it benefit the American homeland the best? Now, first, you should pick from countries that historically have been unbelievably pro American and share our values. Right. And to be honest, like, you know, Somalia would not be the top of the list. It just isn't right. I would pick from countries that, for example, you know, allowing Cubans into the country, you know, if they love the country and they want to assimilate, that's proven to be actually a pretty good idea. There's some of the most reliable conservative people in the country. They're family oriented. They love liberty. So you have to have a criteria. What that criteria looks like or what it is. That's that's up for policy experts. But I could tell you what we're doing now doesn't work at all. What we're doing now is is benevolence based immigration, chain migration. You're related to this and it's not working right instead. We should be OK. What are you here to offer? What can you do if we were to open up immigration? And most importantly, do you share our values? All right. One more quick question and a shout out. Yes. My next question would be historically like when the Irish and the Germans were coming in, a lot of people thought they would be to reduce wages for Americans here at home and a lot of cultural upheaval. And long term, it seems to have kind of worked out. So what's the distinction between that historical immigration and the current immigration we're seeing now from the southern border? Yeah, that's that's that's a good question. I will say, well, we did pause that old immigration, too. Just so you know, we paused it after that wave. But the Irish were largely Catholic or Christian. Right. They assimilated. And the Irish in this country also, after the pause, it took a lot of digestion. And so what I'm getting at right now is digestion. See where we're at as a country. Can we get wages up? Which they're not going. They're not outpacing inflation. Right. Can we prioritize American workers and most importantly, prioritize American students? And let me just focus on this in one particular. It is harder than ever for young people to buy a home. Harder than ever, it is out of reach for so many young people, we should do everything we possibly can to make homeownership possible for young people. It makes them more conservative. It makes them happier. Homeownership is completely out of reach for the next generation. I don't think bringing in a bunch of third worlders is making it easier for students at Missouri State University to be able to own homes. So we got to figure that out. Thank you so much. I got to get the next question. I got to get the next question. No. Okay. You have a shout out? Yes. To my parents. Thank you for raising me homeschooled. Public school is not going well right now. And I'm very proud to be raised homeschooled. Thank you so much. Thank you. My name is Jay Pinkston. How do you recruit younger people to run for office? Because every time we recruit one, the establishment does not seem to get behind them or be supportive of them. Another thing, I've been interested in politics since I was eight years old. I knew every president, every war movie. I was always very patriotic when I was growing up. But when I look at my generation, I'm not like them. I'm just not. When I was with my friends, they all kind of agreed with me. And then I see on the news, they seem like a different total people. But when I'm in my community, they're all like me here. Yep. And how do you recruit younger people to run for office? As I was just saying, without the establishment dabbing them in the back. I just feel like it's been going on. Yeah. So we need to we need to thank you for being here. Great question. We need to reconfigure our politics to be grassroots oriented. And we need to get rid of the old old boys club of central meetings and put the people back in charge of how we select candidates and how I want them going back in the office. And you might say, how do we do that? That's where you come in handy. Become a precinct committee and get involved in your county party, get involved in your state party. These meetings are insufferable, but they're necessary. OK, you got to show up. You have right. Well, I mean, they are just they're roots outnumber the oligarchs, everybody. And a call to action is that's how we start to draft better people to run for office. God bless you, man. Thanks for being here tonight. Thank you. Hello, Charlie. I have a quick question about founding documents. Yep. Us as Americans, we talk a lot about the importance of our funding documents. For example, the Declaration of Independence. My question is, I want your opinion on when those documents become irrelevant, such as the Naturalization Act of seventeen ninety five. Yes, that's that's not in the declaration. That's a piece of legislation passed after it. Right. So and what you're talking about is a piece of legislation that prioritize white Americans. Right. Is that yes. Yes. Got it. So well, you ask two different questions. So when does the declaration become irrelevant? Never. No, that was not my question. My question is founding documents. When do they become irrelevant? Well, I wouldn't say that a piece of legislation passed after the Constitution declaration is a founding document. So I'd be careful getting that designation. Right. But let me ask you, if that was a core value of the founders, where does race appear in the declaration or the Constitution? No answer, sir. Right. Because it was not a core value, it was a political impulse in the 1790s. The core values was to try to create a society where skin color was de-emphasized. Thank you. Hi, Mr. Kirk. I think climate change is a much more serious issue than the conservative movement gives it credit for. And so my question is, what common ground can we find regarding climate action and how can we get more conservatives in on the movement? What can we find that we agree on? Cool. I just want to make sure I understand where you're coming from. And this is not a trick question. Can you define what you mean by climate change? Primarily reducing carbon emissions and other greenhouse gases. Got it. So is your argument that rising global temperatures are tied to carbon emissions? To my understanding, the scientific consensus is quite solid on that. Yes. Got it. OK. So again, not not a trick question. What is carbon? It's not a trick question. OK. It's an element. Yeah. Right. Carbon dioxide traps heat in the atmosphere. Right. So carbon is life. Right. So, yeah, exactly. You can't have life. I've heard this before, though. And the idea that carbon is plant food is great. But the reality is when there's 40 billion tons being emitted a year by a network of global factories and global tailpipes, that absolutely has an impact on climate. Right. So disappointed that this is the reaction. Well, hold on question, honestly, because I don't know how you all were in an agricultural area. We're seeing it worse every year. It's. Well, hold on. Let me ask the question why conservative movement insists on resisting the. Well, I'm not resistant. I'm asking what carbon is. OK, so let's make sure we're clear on what I'm saying. Do you think there could be other explanations as to why global temperatures are rising? Yes. Such as they've studied them and it's not due to anything other than the emissions. OK, so not solar flares, global tilt. Well, they've accounted for those and they found out that those are not the main drivers of the climate change that we're seeing. OK, so you trust I'm trying to understand you trust consensus from scientists that put forward reports. No, I trust Exxon Mobil's own scientist who found this out in the 1980s and hid the findings for decades so that they wouldn't lose money. Right. So excuse me, just as a kind of side note, I'm unbelievably skeptical when I hear scientists say, especially after I had to hear that a vaccine is safe and effective and closing down schools and putting masks on kids was a good answer. But let's pretend you're right. OK, let's pretend that climate change is an existential threat. Would that be something that you say? To our existence, to the human species, probably not, I imagine. OK, we'll always find an ark to live in while the rest of us fail. You have some nuance, so that's fair. So let's talk then about let's pretend you're right. Let's say let's say that there's some solutions. What would be a solution? Should we get rid of fossil fuels? You know, if we could just filter out the it's the carbon that's that's doing it. So I don't know about. Well, no, you're fossil fuels. But if we see that's why I asked about your premise, the amount of the amount of certainty you have in a planet that is so massive with such unbelievable biodiversity to immediately act that we, the humans, are the only reason that global temperatures might be going up, I think is a flawed hypothesis, because if you're wrong, then we might try to find a solution that actually might be more about private property confiscation and wealth deterioration, a.k.a. Marxism not actually solving the problem. That's why I'm so that's why I challenge the hypothesis is what else might be contributing to it? So let's just ask some, you know, ask some very basic questions. So if carbon is the problem, would you support planting one trillion trees? Yes. OK, good. We agree. So that that would be carbon is part of the solution. I think there's a broader set of solutions than what the Democratic Party specifically has been bringing to the table. But again, this resistance by the conservatives to just so let me acknowledge that this carbon is why do you think why do you think we ask questions because we're dumb or why do you think skepticism with good reason? OK, good. No. OK, good. At some point, when in looking for the answer, you need to acknowledge that the answer can be found. And the answer has been found that people have spent their lives and careers studying this for decades. It's been over 100 years ago since people were first talking about the idea that carbon was trapping heat. So this is not a new idea.

"The coroner from the Seattle King County coroner called me and I asked him and he said they were getting 400 a day. Yeah. And it took 21 days to cremate her. It is a they were so backed up and it's all from fentanyl. It's a massacre and I wish our leaders care. I certainly do. God bless you. We have to get the next question. Thank you. Thank you. Hello. So I understand that you are anti-abortion. I want to know at what point do you consider a person to be a person conception. OK, so then a follow up question. Would a miscarriage be considered an abortion by God? No. Why? Well, first of all, we don't question God's plans when it comes to life or death. Only he, the author of life, know the purpose, but it's an accidental death. Yeah. I mean, it's a tragedy, but no, it was not an abortion by God. So we don't question God's decisions, but we don't accept that he could kill. No, you should question them. OK, you could question them all you want to wrestle with God as biblical, but to usurp him is not to wrestle with questions that are very difficult. It's totally understandable, especially people that have dealt with miscarriages. God is sovereign. God has a plan and it doesn't comfort people. But I will say this, that it is tempting to dwell on the mysteries of life of evil. Now, there's two types of evil, evil that humans do and evil that just happens for inexplicable reasons. Evil that humans do. I can understand we are rotten to the core. For example, somebody says, Charlie, the Holocaust made me lose faith in God. See now, the Holocaust made me lose faith in humanity, not God. Big difference. There's other types of evil, natural disasters, hurricanes, tsunamis, earthquakes. Those are tough. We as religious people, miscarriages. We have to explain those. And I'm not the first person to get that question. And there's been an unbelievable amount of writing. However, the atheist or the secularist, they have a lot of explaining to do because they explain everything else. They got to explain how that baby was formed in the first place. They have to explore DNA, explain DNA. They have to explain life, breath, our immune system, how we're able to communicate with one another. What I'm getting at is, and you're touching on something that is fundamentally one of the great mysteries of life. And the inexplicable, I think, tests the faith of the believing. And anyone who gives you a great answer to that question, it's just probably full of bluster. But does it question my faith? No, it actually makes me attach more to an almighty God that gave us existence and life and the universe. Thank you for your question. I appreciate it. Thank you.

"OK, if if anyone disagrees, we'll find you to the front of the line, guys. And yes. Yes, ma'am. I like your hat. Thank you. Thank you, Mr. Kirk. My name is Mitzi. I'm 64 years old and I'm a retired nurse. This past year has been I'm going to say it. Hell for me. I'm a faithful, godly Christian woman. And I do have a question. My daughter, I lost my daughter. She would be 36 years old, three days before Christmas last year to fentanyl. I me and my husband now have our 18 year old grandson living with us, trying to turn his life around. Yeah, he lost both of his parents. I have seen and I have dealt in the nursing field. I have dealt with fentanyl myself with patients, and I know how to do that. What I'm seeing come across the border is very scary. And I am really afraid for everybody here that somebody is going to get fentanyl by accident and die. I want to know what we can do to help that. Yeah, well, first of all, I'm very sorry for your loss. I just want to say that. And God has a plan for your life. And you have a very important project to make sure that 18 year old has a great life. So don't don't be discouraged. OK, the first thing, what can we do? Well, we can close the border. That would be nice. And we could stop the flow of fentanyl into this country. I'm curious, how many of you know somebody that died because of fentanyl? Raise your hand. Yeah. I mean, how many of you know someone that was killed by a Russian? Nobody. Yeah. A couple of veterans raised their hands. Fair enough. OK, that's fair. The point is this. Why the heck are our leaders more concerned about Vladimir Putin than they are about fentanyl? That is a disgrace. It is a disgrace. Fentanyl impacts every single person in this room. So what can we do? Look, I. What's so sad about the fentanyl issue is you you isolated, it can be done by mistake, is that people have a different intention at time to do a drug that is not as hard and they could overdose. I by no means I'm an expert on it. But here's what I could say. The Chinese Communist Party is the manufacturer of a lot of this fentanyl. Also, the prerequisite ingredients for it at the very least. Why on earth we are not doing everything we can have sanctions and tariffs on the reverse opium wars against the West is beyond me. The Chinese Communist Party released a deadly virus on the entire world. We locked down, we destroyed our currency over. They were never held accountable and they pump in fentanyl that kills over 100000 people a year in this country. Our elites are captured. And I'm very sorry for your loss, but it was co-sponsored by three different things. The Chinese Communist Party, the cartel and weak conservative leaders that have kept the southern border porous and wide open. I just I just want to give you one statistics. She was in Washington state.

"Okay, well, you're very smart. I'm just telling you that if as mom involved, it will only make the coach more less likely to accommodate the right. I know that's a provocative thing to say. And I know I'm going on a limb here. But you may have to take a step back and let your son fight the battle for himself. I will definitely do that. And I wanted to in closing say that life begins before we are born. God said he knew us before we were in Jeremiah. Amen. Thank you. Hi, Mr. Kirk, thank you for taking my question. First, I'd like to begin by saying that America is the best country in this world. Yes, it is. I love this country. And I love my God, I'd like to say those two things. You talked a lot about how immigration, especially illegal immigration is changing the culture of the United States in a negative way. Yep. And I think a lot of the importance of that is remembering, like, what makes America great. And so my question to you is, could you just elaborate a little bit about what makes America the best country on earth? Yeah, well, first of all, we have a unique founding, the founding of America is one of the great miracles in humanity ever. And understanding what led to the founding is also important. A religious revival led to the greatest political accomplishment in human history. It was Jonathan Edwards and Jonathan Mayhew and George Whitfield preaching thousands and thousands of sermons, asking for repentance along the eastern seaboard that led to the prerequisite for the people of the nation to want liberty, which is God's idea, not man's idea. Deuteronomy was the most cited book in the founding of the nation, secular or religious. So we were great because we went to eternal principles. We are great, hopefully we're losing our greatness, but we need to go back to what made the founding so interesting and so unique and exceptional was you look at the promise of the Declaration of Independence, when in the course of human events becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands that have tied them to another. That's an eternal question that any people at any time deserve liberty and self-government, if you can handle it, as Adams would say, because the Constitution is written solely for a moral or religious people. But it goes on that the Constitution derived certain bedrock, eternal principles from the scriptures, and they built a whole government around it, that all men are created equal separation of powers, checks and balances, independent judiciary, three branches of government. Now, the form itself is not everything, though, because you could take the American Constitution and put it in a random country and they are not free. Look at Liberia. Liberia has an American flag, their capital is Monrovia. They actually have a pretty robust constitution and they're not a free country because it's not just the form of government, but it's also the matter of the people with the form. And what I'm getting at is that there were four major religious revivals in this country that have kept the country free. In First Chronicles, it says my people will turn their face to me and repent. I'm afraid we have not done that in a long time in this country. And so secondarily beyond that, there is a uniquely American ethic and ethos, delayed gratification, private property ownership. I'm going to go above and beyond so that my children can live a better life than I live. Intergenerational stratification is a very wordy way to say it, that if you believe that what you do will make dividends for your kids or grandkids, you're willing to do the right thing. If you think what you're going to do makes no impact, well, then you live in a country like India where you feel as if you're in a caste system and you'll never be able to move up. That's a long answer to a very good question, but it's not just the form, but it's the matter. And if you import matter into the country that is at odds with the form, then the form ceases to exist. When you import hundreds of thousands of Elon Omar that don't believe in the First Amendment, they don't believe in the Second Amendment, they don't believe in states rights, they don't believe in E Pluribus Unum, they don't believe in God We Trust and they don't believe in liberty. Well, those bedrock principles failed to exist because they want to impose their own in there. And finally, the reason why the country is also collapsing is we're becoming a less religious country. Alexander Solzhenitsyn said in the Gulag Archipelago, all of these atrocities happen because people forgot God. It is a direct correlation. As America has become more secular and less religious, we become less free. Thank you. Thank you.
"state university" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"All right, Mr. Kirk. So as you know, our opposition has a habit of redefining language and changing the meaning of words in order to, well, trick people. And that's why it's very important, I think, to define our words, especially when talking about things like immigration. So I wanted to know your opinion. Setting aside things like paperwork, you know, like government status, your citizenship status. Do you believe that people who migrate to America from any part of the world can claim to be Americans in the same way that say someone who perhaps founded and settled this country, you know, 10 generations ago can? Um, it depends. Depends. I think it's more of a value question, right? I mean, I wouldn't go back 10 generations. I mean, I'll give you an example. If you came in the wave of immigration in the early 1900s as an Irish or a Polish immigrant, and you assimilated to the country and learned the language. Yes, you are an American. Absolutely. Or I'll give another example. If you're a Cuban that fled Castro's communism in the 1960s, and come to America, and you learn the language and you hate Marxism, and you're fighting every single day for for your country. Yes. Because I do not think America in its core is a racial makeup at all. I do think, though, that if you ignore the history and the tradition of the country and try to change the country too dramatically, then and you ignore its roots, well, then you're committing civilizational suicide. And I'll add to this, though. So and I don't want to put words in your mouth. But let me just say that there is no guarantee. I mean, because let's just take a state that is one of the oldest states in the country, right? Vermont. Okay. Vermont is a very white state. Vermont has a lot of people that have been there for eight, nine or 10 generations. Vermont is one of the least free states in the country, right? And so there's not necessarily a one to one correlation of Oh, my goodness, these people have been around for so long. And they're necessarily embracing the right value system. In fact, they're embracing some of the goofiest and wacky ideas. Bernie Sanders is the senator from Vermont. Burlington, Vermont is one of the most insane places imaginable. But no, I do think that a country can go way too far. And Vermont is full of Mayflower descendants that then have abandoned American values. And let me say something provocative. When I go down the streets of Burlington, Vermont, and I'll meet a 19 year old with purple hair that believes men can give birth that might be an 11th generation or 10th generation descended Mayflower compact. Or if I walk the streets of Miami, and I see a second generation Cuban that loves liberty and loves freedom, honestly, the person is a second generation American in Miami is much more of an American than the person that's been here for 11 generations. Thank you. Thank you for that. I just want to add a quick follow up. Do you believe your opinion would be the same as those who, you know, founded the country and settled the country? Um, I don't I mean, you'd have to read what they wrote. So yeah, I mean, generally, the American founders believed in a Latin phrase E pluribus unum. Do you know what that means? Out of many one. That's part of the American Trinity. The American Trinity is liberty in God we trust and E pluribus unum. And E pluribus unum de emphasizes race, tribe and sectarian ideology. And it prioritizes character, action and values. That's the country I want to live in. Thank you very much. Hi, Charlie. I just want to appreciate you coming out here to talk. And I agreed with most your points as a conservative and Christian. I like what you had to say tonight. My question isn't really about what you talked about, but I was just wondering if you've ever looked into flat earth before the earth is not flat.
"state university" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"Yep. Yeah. Wins. And you know what? I'm going to take the heart. I'm still going to see, I like to analyze stuff. I want to see how they all kind of play out, but I definitely like that perspective and think cool. Thanks, man. Appreciate it. Thank you. I got a question for you here. So sorry, I'm not very used to impromptu speaking, so take your time. The Republican Party has been choosing to replace the values of white America with the values of minority groups that are foreign and progressive. As time goes on, the conservative movement has continually given up ground on positions that were once unacceptable to most Americans. This has progressed to a point where Republicans choose to take liberal positions in order to pander for votes. Middle class white America is opting out of American politics because they are being shamed for their identity and their voices are being ignored. They are left to choose between a political party that hates them and a political party that does not care for them. Why do you think this is happening? Why do I think they're disengaging or why do I think they're not? Why do you think that the system is currently targeting them? That's a good question. There's a lot of people at the top of the ladder that are plagued with white guilt, to be honest. White guilt is a major thing. You guys should read Shelby Steele's book on it. He's a black philosopher and economist where he says white guilt has been the number one driver of bad political decisions over the last 50 or 60 years. But honestly, even more than race thing, I just think that American values are under attack from a hyper academic elite that say that certain things are quote unquote whiteness, right? And so let me give you an example. The Smithsonian Museum, the black African American History Museum, the Smithsonian Museum said that showing up on time doing mathematics, speaking with proper grammar is quote unquote whiteness. What they're really getting at is they're trying to say the values that are not necessarily white or black, that built the West are evil and toxic. And why the leaders want that? That's an intention question. I can't answer intention questions unless they reveal it bluntly and plainly and repeatedly. But it is true. And I've said it before, that whether it be affirmative action, hiring practices, or the quote unquote racial reckoning that happened post Floyd Palooza, there is an institutional war on white people in this country. It is harder for a white student to get into a university and a college than a black student or Hispanic student with similar grades or even lower grades. So why it's happening, that's speculation that people can fill in the dots for themselves. But it's 100% happening, whether through immigration or other ways. And yeah, that's the best answer I can give that. Thank you so much. I appreciate it. Thank you.

"People like you give me hope. People like you that are fighting back and that are standing up. I am so disturbed by the American left's occupation of black America. Black America needs to rise up and needs to reject these Marxist liberal left wing influences. And it's going to start with people like you. So God bless you and thank you so much. Thank you. Great. If you disagree, come to the line. Yes. Next question. Good evening, Mr. Kirk. Pleasure to have you here. My name is Nicholas Pruitt and I'm from Southwest Baptist University. I just wanted to hear your comments on what Mike Pence called the siren song of populism. That is to say an epidemic that's sweeping the left and the right in this country because I think it's pretty clear the founding fathers were against populism. I mean, John Adams said that the Constitution was created for a moral and religious people and is wholly inadequate for government of any other. Alexander Hamilton wrote in the Federalist Papers against the passions of an unrestrained people. And that's why he advocated for a strong central government. And I tend to be against populism myself. I think it's pretty damaging for the country and its core institutions. But I wanted to hear your thoughts on it. Sounds to me like you're populist. I don't want to speak for you, but just hear your thoughts on that. I'm definitely a conservative populist. I think populism can go too far. I mean, obviously, I agree with my founding fathers in that regard. But honestly, in recent times, I'm really thrilled with the populist movement because it has exposed some issues that old school conservatives like Mike Pence have been ignoring. One in particular is immigration. We did a whole speech on that tonight. If you would have just gone through doctrinaire, old school conservatism, they say, well, just allow as many people as possible into the country and, you know, sit down and shut up. Sometimes when the people are yelling and trying to tell you something, we should listen. The best way I could summarize populism in its most healthy way that Mike Pence does not hold. And I don't know if you guys are Mike Pence fans, but that is this is. Listening to your voters. And not despising them and ignoring them when they're telling you something is amiss when your voters are saying our wages are going down and the dollar is decreasing in value and our kids are not sharing our values. Mike Pence should not elite in an elitist way, smugly look down on them and say, I know better than you. At the same time, the passions of a populist can go too far, right? We shouldn't just give reparations because a bunch of people want reparations. But we have gone so far out of whack that what they call conservatism is actually neoliberalism masquerading as conservatism, where it's actually left wing values that have inserted itself into the conservative movement. So there's parts of me that are very populist. I'm more of a nationalist than honestly a populist, because I love my country and every single decision our leaders should make is what is best for the nation, what is best for the citizens. And if populism is a constructive means to that end, if people are screaming in pain, you don't give a speech and say, sit down and shut up. You should say, why are you hurting and how can I fix it? And that is populism at its best. Thank you so much. For the record, I support Mike Pence, but I also see your criticism against God. I support Mike Pence and I think he's a very honorable man, but I can see you. Don't boo him. That's all right. Thank you. Thanks.

Don't do drugs, guys. How's it going, Mr. Sir? Good. Thanks. So is Obama white or black? Say that again. Is Obama is he white or black? I can't. I can't hear you. Slow down. Is past President Obama, is he white or is he half and half? He's half and half. Yeah, according to his own admission. A lot of people say he's black, but if he has a white parent and a black parent. I said he's half and half. Okay, but the take is that if they want to keep the white primacy pure form, so they want to say that he's black. Yeah, I honestly haven't thought very deeply about the racial composition of Obama. If you get a pizza from Domino's, okay? Yeah, again. No, no, no. This is relative. You should probably stop. This is relative, unlike you. Trust me. Oh, trust you? Okay. If you get a half pepperoni and half cheese pizza, it's not. It's not a cheap pizza, right? So cool. Like I said, half white, half black, half cheese, half pepperoni. What's the point? Where are you getting at? Why is everybody laughing at me? The lack of self awareness is shocking. Thanks for being here. Okay. Missouri State starting strong, everybody. I got to tell you. Okay. Mrs. Charlie, it's an honor to meet you. I'm a huge fan of you, Candace, Ben Shapiro. And for someone that looks like me, if I even say I'm a conservative, I often get a strange look. So how do I stand up and say I'm a conservative? And then without people saying, oh, how can you be a conservative? And often they refer to saying like, oh, how can you be conservative and be black? And which is like something I often struggle to respond to, because I don't know why my skin color even plays or even any part in being what part of politics I stand. Anybody who says that is no better than a KKK activist from 150 years ago. Because they believe that if you have a skin color, you must believe a certain thing. The answer is you don't have to explain yourself. And I know it's tough, but I would throw it back at them. I think you should say, excuse me, why do you think you know my value system based on the melanin content in my skin? Why are you judging me? Why are you putting me in a box? Webster definition of racism is prejudging a person based on the melanin content in somebody's skin. Now, I don't throw around the racist term like a Frisbee because I'm not a leftist. But anybody that says that or gives you a weird look or says you can't be a conservative because you're black is just as racist as a grand wizard from the American South from the late 1800s. Let me also say this stuff.

So I want to speak to all of you amazing patriots, hear your concerns, teach something that I might have learned through my 11 years of study and research and thousands of hours I've dedicated to this. But most importantly, bring the fight to the country. Bring the fight where it matters most, especially the next generation. God bless you, man. Thank you. Hey, I'm Jay Dubs and I identify as a woman. Oh, yeah, I was going women's abortion. I was going to like I know you're against it and everything, but it's like they're right. It's like their body, like not yours or mine. And it's obviously their choice. And I just think that it's okay. And I know that you don't. So what I guess what's your like point? Cool. When did your life begin? Whenever I was born. Okay, so it would have been okay to terminate a baby all throughout gestational period up to up to 39 weeks. Yeah, if they like, I guess if they got pregnant, and they didn't want to, like if my mom got pregnant, my dad just like, you know, did it and like, she didn't want to and then like, I was born like, I feel like that would be her like choice to do so. Got it. So is it okay to murder your six month old? Um, no. Why? Because it's a whole entire kid. But I'm talking about like, plan C. Like, repeat what you said. I didn't hear what you said. That's like a whole kid. Oh, six months. But you have a whole kid at 38 weeks, too. So starting at 32 weeks, a baby can survive outside the womb. So I'm just trying to understand your position. Why the moral worth of a baby changes at 32 weeks versus six months. So it's like, instead of like anger? Oh, I mean, no, I don't know what you mean. Oh, it's what I was just wondering. Um, honestly, this is my take. And it's like my opinion and stuff. Like, I'm a transgender woman. So yeah, I wanted to just say like, what you would say about abortion. Okay, got it. Yeah. So but again, so when does life begin objectively? Um, well, honestly, I have another question for you. I'm pretty, pretty important, right? When does life begin? When I guess you're born out of your mom's womb? Okay, what if you were born at 28 weeks? That's okay. I mean, you can't be born in 28 weeks. Yeah, you can. Yeah, you can. She was born at 28 weeks. It's called a cesarean section. Do you know? Do you know what that is? I have no idea what that is. Okay, got it. Um, so it's called the C section, right? It's actually one fourth of all deliveries in America are done by cesarean section. So let me ask you fingerprint, heartbeat, brainwaves. How is that not a life? Um, yeah, I don't know. Um, so what if they got exactly what if they got sex traffic? Don't you think it's important then to protect every life? Regardless of how bad you want that life gone for sure. Yeah. Um, what did they get like sex traffic and then like they had a kid but they didn't want it? Is that still like not okay to get? So there's no such thing as an unwanted human being in this country. We have twice as many people on the adoption list than we have abortions in this country. And so that the language that you are using, the language you are using of unwanted is no different than eugenics or Nazi Germany, correct? Yep. So you would agree with Hitlerian eugenics when it comes to pregnancies? Yep.

"That place has got a lot of problems, I'll tell you what. So in closing, ordinary people that see their country disappearing and collapsing, there's a lot of reasons for it. There's a cabal of people running the country, but the one thing you can do is break free from the language manipulation, the language control that other people have over you because of the names they might throw on you. And if you find yourself thinking differently or behaving differently, and it happens to me even sometimes, happens to all of us, because of what you might be called, then you're not living in a free country and you're participating in the destruction of the country. I was struck when I was reading about Soviet literature. There's a lot of people in the 80s and 90s that visited the Soviet Union, and they said, one of the things, if you went to a coffee shop in the Soviet Union, and you were going to say anything political, you'd always look over your shoulder to make sure you're not being listened to. That's exactly what happens if you go into a Starbucks in America today. Could you go into a Starbucks in America today and say that men are men and women are women without being afraid that some purple-haired jihadi is going to come and throw a thing of coffee on you? By the way, I have two types of jihadis that want me dead now, like actual jihadis and the other type of jihadis, you know, both religious zealots by different means. But here's the point. I'm not saying that when you walk into the Starbucks, you have to say, well, that would be nice. But what I am saying, though, is don't allow your thoughts at the fundamental level to be controlled by the bullying and the totalitarianism that occurs. It's amazing how I mean, again, we it's overused, it's overused, it's overused, but it's overused for a reason. If you actually really study 1984, which I'm a student of that book, I think it's ridiculously prophetic, is how they don't just control your behavior, they don't just control your language, they're getting down to controlling your thoughts to controlling and policing how you actually analyze certain situations. And the good news is that I truly believe at its core that we're under an occupation of an illegitimate regime in this country, and that there's still so much fight and so much goodness left in this country. I believe it at my core. And one of the ways it's not the only way, but one of the ways that we defeat that one of the ways that we shed that is by people saying, I'm not going to change my language, change who I support because of the bullying and intimidation of what you think you could take away from me. Said differently, you will be the same person in private as you are in public and vice versa, that you're not going to have to put on a uniform and pretend to be somebody that you're not. This makes them weaker. And it puts them on defense. One of the reasons they have a cultural hold on us is that exactly. And our secret weapon is to release the everyday rank and file person to speak their mind, regardless of the cost, regardless of the cancellation. It is easier said than done. Some of you might lose your job, some of you might get different grades and lower grades in class. But here's my one guarantee. You'll be able to look at your kids and your grandkids and say, I was not a coward when it mattered most. And that is much more important than anything else. All right, let's do some questions, everybody. All right. All right, so we're going to line up here. And we're usually do a line if you disagree and go to the front of the line. Let me just kind of lay some ground rules. So make them questions, not statements, because you want to get to as many questions as possible. Also, obviously, this is a predominant conservative audience, right? You can tell. That's the line right there if you guys want to start lining up. But let me just mention a couple things. Since it is a predominant conservative audience, please give respect if you hear something wacky or goofy from a liberal questioner. Don't mock, don't laugh, just sit respectfully, because we as conservatives want to give the left the respect they never give us here tonight. Okay. All right, let's do some questions. Good afternoon, Mr. Kirk. My name is Kevin. I'm a student here, volunteer and veteran. And my question is, if you could run or if you were old enough, would you run for the presidency in this election? No, no, I wouldn't. No, thank you. I'm flattered. Look, people say, yeah, I just turned 30. I'm getting too old for this stuff. I gotta tell you. People say, are you gonna run for something, all this? I have the greatest job in the world. I get to see the fruits of my labor, minds changed, people motivated, patriots encouraged. Every single day, I get to see it. Every single day. And I was very, very good friends with Rush Limbaugh before he passed away. And boy, we miss Rush, don't we? What an unbelievable patriot in Europe. And a Missouri product, might I add. And I mean, I'm never gonna be rushed. But if I could have a fraction of the impact Rush had, I believe at my core, that's what's missing most in America right now, is to help fill that void of a teacher, an encourager, a truth teller, someone that calls balls and strikes, someone that lifts you up when you need it the most. And look, our show is growing like crazy right now. I never would have imagined it. We're filling out auditoriums. So that's number one. I want to try to help fill that void to be a teacher and an encourager and a truth teller. And the second part of it is I'm an entrepreneur and organizer, Turning Point USA and Turning Point Action have grown beyond our wildest imaginations. We're on thousands of campuses across the country. Our pastor outreach program at TPUSA Faith, we have 2,000 pastors and church partnerships now at TPUSA Faith, some right here. And so that's what I feel called to do. People ask me to run for office. You think I want to run for office to be part of that circus? They can't even pick a speaker of the house.
"state university" Discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"Wow, thank you everybody. Thank you. Thank you. Wow, what a group. This is great. You know, that is not always the welcome I get on college campuses, I have to tell you. You saw some of my recent visits. That's not the case. First, I just want to say thank you to our amazing Turning Point USA chapter. They're I'm glad you heard from my friend Will Scharf. He's doing amazing. I'll tell you, he's one of the smartest legal minds out there on our show. Anyone watch our show? By the way, thank you guys. Anytime I want a very strong legal opinion, I have Will Scharf come on, and he does a great job. I'm very, very happy that he's helping represent our president against that terrible witch hunt. He's doing a great job. So Will, thank you for sharing some words. So I'll talk for a little bit and then we'll do some questions, which is honestly the most fun. I think that's why you're all here, right? To ask questions and if you disagree, you can go to the front of the line and we'll have some fun from there. We had 10 protesters outside. You guys can do much better than that in Springfield, Missouri, okay? Look, I want to be nice, but that was pathetic, okay? You got to send your leftists to Berkeley for a couple weeks to learn how to really protest, okay? You know how I know it's not a big deal? I walk on campus here and they say, oh yeah, there's really no police or all this. I said, wow, this really is God's country, right? Because I got to be honest, that's a good sign. It really is. I'm so used to the SWAT teams and snipers on the roof and helicopters and it's Missouri, so I think we got this handled, right? It's great. So a couple things I want to talk about. Yesterday, we did our campus tour at University of Texas San Antonio, talked about how the media is trying to get us into World War III. It's inexcusable what the media did in the last couple of days, completely lying about what happened in Israel, taking Hamas's narrative of a hospital. Turns out the hospital was not bombed. They said 500 people died. Turns out 500 people didn't die and Israel didn't do it. Everything about it was a lie and an impact that our geopolitics. And one thing I want to talk about tonight, it's going to be the central part of my message, is immigration because immigration is something that is obviously, you become the country that you import, you become the country of the some of the parts that you let into the nation. But I think many of us are looking what's happening domestically to the response of what happened in Israel as a reminder of how stupid and insane our immigration policies have been in this country. We're going to talk about this rather bluntly and plainly because I think people are afraid to talk about this because they're afraid of being called a racist or a xenophobe. There's nothing racist or xenophobic about loving the country so much that you don't want people who hate your country to come into your country. That is about loving your nation.

This is your next step in creating a beautiful, year -round, environmentally -connected, low -maintenance, and healthy, thriving outdoor space. It doesn't matter if you're a beginner or an expert, there will always be something inspiring when you listen to The Garden Question podcast. Hello, I'm your host, Craig McManus. Welcome to another exciting episode of The Garden Question podcast. Today we're venturing to the captivating realm of plant breeding, a topic that's as fascinating as it is innovative. We all cherish the joy of designing our own gardens, but have you ever dreamt of crafting your very own plants, tailored specifically for your garden? Well buckle up, because we're about to dive into this extraordinary world with an expert who's mastered the art of plant breeding. In this episode, I'm thrilled to introduce you to David Roberts, a trailblazer in the horticultural universe. David's journey is nothing short of inspiring. Armed with a master's degree in horticultural science from the prestigious North Carolina State University, he embarked on a path that led him to a profound passion for ornamental plant breeding. During his academic pursuits, he'd worked closely with esteemed mentors Dr. Dennis Werner and Dr. Tom Rainey, honing his skills and nurturing his love for the art and science of plant breeding. Here's where the story takes an exciting turn. Bailey Nurseries recognized David's exceptional talent and enthusiasm, welcoming him into their family in 2015. Since then, he's been the driving force behind Bailey Innovations, serving as the general manager and head plant breeder. Currently, as the director of plant breeding for Bailey Innovations, David oversees the breeding directions and orchestrates plant trials right from their nursery in Winterville, Georgia.

At heart, most plant breeders want to create something new and innovative, whether that is aesthetically innovative or performance -based. No plant breeder sets out wanting to create a plant that looks exactly like a plant that's already out there.
Colleges That Shield Predators With Kalen D'Almeida
"Just so you know, at Turning Point USA, we're doing so much. We have this amazing journalist investigative reporting team, Frontlines, and Kalen does a great job of running it. Kalen, welcome. Thank you. Thanks for having me. So Kalen, while I'm dealing with all that, all of a sudden I'm seeing all these stories that are coming up and Michael Crow from Arizona State University condemns Turning Point USA. And I'm like, oh, what's going on here? And first of all, I just love the work that Frontlines does. And as soon as I read, I said, there's someone's lying about, I just knew it. My gut instinct, right? Because you guys do a great job. And so essentially you and your team went to go act as journalists, a member of the press, to go ask a current professor, Professor Boyles, who's a sponsor of Drag Queen Story Hour. Right. Some questions. And from there, things got a little bit unpredictable. Tell us about it. Right. So, well, Professor Boyles, he made the Professor Watchlist. It's a great resource for parents, for students to know who is teaching on their campuses. And so we found Professor Boyles' profile and we learned, OK, this is somebody who thinks that drag is a myth, that it's a myth that it harms children, which is ridiculous. Yeah. I mean, it's perverse. Exactly. And they call it that because we don't know what harm is going to come of it yet. We don't know yet, but everyone who has a brain in their head kind of can see down the road and see where that leads. Then, too, he thinks that books like All Boys Are Not Blue, which has very graphic demonstration of gay sex between minors in it, he thinks that should be in public libraries. That's him on screen, right? Yeah. That should be in public libraries, he thinks. So you went to go ask him questions about his publicly stated beliefs, including a now taken down sub stack where he was talking about him having sex with or somebody having sex. Yeah. So, yeah, so I get the facts right. Yeah. So the story that he wrote on his sub stack was about a minor who eventually has sex with adults. And he took down that from the Internet. Yes. OK, so so you guys then do what you do best at front lines. You decided to go ask him questions as a journalist, a member of the press constitutionally protected speech. And basically you guys follow him, ask questions. He gets angry. He lunges at one of you in an act of self -defense. Was it you or somebody else who then intercepted him? And now he is accusing you of assault.

Israel says it's getting ready for the next stage of operations in its fight against Hamas. In a briefing early today, an Israeli military spokesman says they've seen significant movement of Palestinian civilians towards the south of the Gaza Strip. Israel told the U .N. on Thursday to evacuate over a million from the northern Gaza area within 24 hours in advance of a likely ground assault and retaliation for last weekend's attack. While President Biden assures families of Americans who went missing in the Israel -Hamas war that the U .S. is doing everything it can to bring them home as tension rises over the issue at a California college, Nika Magahes reports. Some Jewish faculty members at San Jose State University, like Professor Jonathan Roth, are upset about the leadership's response to the conflict. What really is the worst massacre of Jews since the Holocaust? And we would like to have heard that from the university, as the nation heard from President Biden. In a statement, San Jose State wrote, we stand against hate, violence and oppression. Our choice to denounce hate also relies on our capacity to hear opposing viewpoints. Some staff members have approached university leadership regarding the message, arguing that the school is not doing enough to combat anti -Semitism. Reports say a former attorney for Donald Trump, Michael Cohen...

A highlight from Roger Smith's Journey From The Bahamas to Pro Tennis: Beating the World #1 and Teaching The Next Generations
"Welcome to the official tennis dot com podcast featuring professional coach and community leader, Kamau Murray. Welcome to the tennis dot com podcast. I'm your host, Kamau Murray, and we are here with the man, the myth, the legend. A graduate of The Ohio State University, former ATP pro, a coach to many, a mentor to many, father of great tennis player, former USTA coach, worked for Federation, from the Bahamas, former Davis Cup player. If you name it in Tennessee, he's done it all, knows everyone. Everyone has great stories about him, and we're going to hear some of his great stories today. We are here with Mr. Roger Smith. Roger, welcome to the show. Thanks for having me, Kamau. I really appreciate this opportunity to speak here, man. So I'm glad I got you on the show because, you know, when we think about Bahamian tennis, the first person out of everybody's mouth is Mark Knowles. And then I got to correct him and be like, hey, what about Roger? What about the brother Roger? So, you know, you grew up playing tennis from in a small island, but, I mean, that island's had a lot of success reaching the same world group as the US back in the day. Tell me about how you got in the tennis from that small island and how you were able to sort of progress to come into play at the top level NCAA, you know, top college in the States from the Bahamas. Well, if you have all day, I can tell you that story. I'll do bits and pieces as we go. Yeah, I'm from a small island, obviously Grand Bahama in the Bahamas, but I'm actually from a very small settlement called West End. The population was probably three thousand. And in that settlement, you know, obviously, tourism is the main industry. And we had one resort down there called the Jack Tower Hotel. And remember, I'm old now, you know, I came from the days where, you know, the bosses and the powers to be were obviously, you know, we were a British colony. So obviously the white British guys were in charge. And coming from an island where there was mostly, you know, black people, we could only go so far, you know, working at that resort. You know, we could be maitre d's, you could be pool attendants. Most of us couldn't even show our face at the front desk, per se. So growing up in that environment, I kind of knew from a young age, I'm saying six years old that, hey, there's something bigger and better for me out there. You know, because all my friends growing up, all they wanted to do is be bus boys and maitre d's where they can get $40 tips and so forth. And I was like, nah, man, there's got to be something bigger than that. And so I despised that. I remember back in the day where the bosses, white guys would, you know, word would go around that they were coming into the village, per se, to eat and dine and drink a few. And everybody in the village would pretty much cook their best food. You had to dress up in your Sunday best. And if there were like three, 30 restaurants, per se, maybe they would go to visit two or three, right, during the course of the evening. And everyone would be so disappointed. All the restaurant owners or the bars would be so disappointed. I mean, the look on their face, man, was just terrible, you know, in disappointment. And I just despised that, man. And that motivated me. I found my purpose at a young age. I was not going to get caught up in that stuff. I knew there was something bigger and better out there for me. I didn't know what it was at the time. I was six years old. But, you know, I took a bold step to just strive for something better. And even if I so -called failed to end people's eyes, it didn't matter. My purpose was so deep that it just didn't matter, man. I was going for it. I didn't know it was tennis. But we eventually moved to Freeport, where my mother, we moved to this condominium, and they had tennis courts and they had a tennis wall. And it was so bad. Come on, man. None of the kids would play with me, man. And mostly white kids, you know, expats. One of them would play with me. And there happened to be one kid I went to school with that taught me how to score, taught me the rules of the game. And, man, I just became a fanatic. I fell in love with the sport. And I played a lot of other sports, you know, basketball, baseball, you name it, track and field. But I just fell in love with tennis, man. And I just played on this wall all day, all night. I wouldn't even get in trouble with my mom, man. I'd come in after dark and I'd lose a million balls. I'd be climbing fence to find balls, man. But I got good. And three months later, I played my first tournament. And back in the day, junior tournament was just 18 and under. No age group. No age group. Right. Yeah. And I got to the quarterfinals, you know, just on fight. My strokes were terrible. I could run. I hate to lose. Like I said, I had a purpose, man. Now, were you self -taught at that point? Did you receive any form or training? Or was it just you and the wall? Just me and the wall. Self -taught. And everybody that would hit with me, man, I wanted to go all day. They would hit for 10 minutes and quit. I was just getting so pissed, man. I wanted to just hit all day. I'd line them up, man, hit with three people. And after like an hour, they quit. I had no one else to hit with, man. So I would just go on the wall. Right. And I, you know, I just learned. I just didn't want to miss. I just got consistent. And I got to the quarterfinals, like I said, beat a couple of good guys. And then I lost in the quarters to this kid who was 18. And he had a beard, man. Big and strong. Good strokes. Lost six points a third in a three and a half hour match. And then all the kids wanted to play with me. And then some men saw me play and they invited me to their club. And they were like, look, it was hotel, really, not the club. And come play with the men. So I started to play with the men and they would beat my butt, man. I'd be crying because I want to win so bad. They would tease me. But I forgot the kids, man. You know, I didn't play with them. I just learned how to compete, you know, just learn how to compete through everything. And a year later, man, I played my first 12 and under national tournament, which was in Nassau now, where Mark Knowles is from. And I won the 12 and unders. And that was like within six to eight months after I first started playing tennis. So that's how I got started, man. That's how I got started. But I was like a court rat, man. Anyone would tell you, man, if you want to define Roger Smith, he was at the court at this one hotel called the Princess Tower. And going further, you know, the Princess Tower was where they had the superstars. I don't know if you remember the superstars back. That might be before your time. That's before my time. Yeah, but you heard of it, right? That's when they had all the superstars of every sport come in and compete against each other in different sports. To see who was the best. And this guy saw me play, and he loved the way I played, man. He saw me hitting other courts and he said, hey, who's your coach? And I said, man, I don't really have a coach. And he said, I'm going to come back in two weeks, man. I'm going to get you some coaching. And I go, okay, man, you're going to come back in two weeks. I'll be ready. So an hour later he came back and he shook my hand. And he says, look, man, you ready to go? I mean, I mean, this is how serious I am. And he gave me a hundred dollar bill. And a hundred dollars back then is a lot of money. And it was a big guy, man. You know, and he just had this certain look about it, man. And a strong male figure, you know, but I didn't know who he was. Gave me a hundred dollars. Show enough, Kamal. Two weeks later, he came back and he said, you're going to be ready to go on Sunday. This is like Thursday. And I'm like, damn, he's serious. I'm like, yeah, I'm going to be ready to go. And he says, but I got to meet your parents. So I go, I get you. You're not going to meet my dad. Because remember, my dad passed away when I was 11 months old. So I never really knew my dad. So it was all my mom, you know. And so I told her, look, we got to go to dinner to meet this guy. He's going to take me to Florida to get this coaching. She's like, man, get the hell out of here, man. You crazy. I was like, no, man, no. And she's like, I ain't going. I was like, no, you're not going to kill my dream. You got to go. So she came. We went, we met him at the hotel. She saw him. I said, there's the guy right there. She says, do you know who that is? And I go, no, I don't know who that is. She said, that's Jimmy the Greek. And I'm like, Jimmy the Greek? I don't know who that is. And she said, man, that's Jimmy the Greek. So anyway, we went. You know, Jimmy the Greek, man. You know, he was the big Vegas odds man there with sports and stuff. You know, he did Monday Night Football. He was huge. And so anyway, long story short, she gave me $200 to go with him on Sunday. We get to the ticket counter and I said, hey, Mr. Snyder, because his name is Jimmy the Greek Snyder. Here's my $200 for the ticket. He said, man, keep that money in your pocket, man. So we get on the flight, man. We go to Miami and we get there and we're met by like a group of like seven, eight people. And you could tell they were someone, you know, and a limousine. And we go to the limousine and I'm really nervous because I'm like, our bags, man. I need our bags. And he's like, oh, don't worry about the bags. I'm like, no, no, no, you don't understand. That's all the clothes I got. I need my bags. So we get to his condominium and we went to this place called the California Country Club, which is where I was going to train with Gardner Malloy. But he had a condo there and it was owned by Cesar's Palace. And so we go up to his condo. We get in there and our bags are there. I'm like, damn, is this magic? What the hell? How did we get our bags blown away? But it was my first formal experience of life of the rich and famous. You know what I'm saying? Damn, these guys got magic, man. I mean, we ain't got it like that. I don't have it like that in the Bahamas, you know what I mean? So I got my first coaching experience from Gardner Malloy, the great Gardner Malloy. You know, obviously, and he was great. He was stubborn. He was mean, but he meant well. And I was not going to blow my chances at this chance to play tennis. Yes, I was going to ask you that because, you know, a lot of like we always talk about people from Barbados, from the US version of the island, from the Bahamas, finding their way to Florida at some point. Right. Yes. So comments on the island. And at some point, somebody makes a phone call, sees him at a tournament, sees him at ITF. And before you know it, they are one of the academies in Florida. So is that when at 11 years old, is that when you made your move to Florida? It was at 12. I had my first experience with coaching with Gardner Malloy. Yes. And I would. And the very next year at 13, I went for the summer and then I actually went to a military high school in Florida. I played state championships, got to the semifinals in Florida and everything. I was highly recruited in Florida. Florida State, Florida, Stetson, you name it, UCF. Didn't really want to stay in Florida because I don't really like Florida, believe it or not. Southeastern Oklahoma State University. So there were a lot. I got accepted at USC, but not a scholarship, obviously, because remember, if you're from the islands, you can't play the national tournaments. You have to be an American. So if it wasn't by word of mouth, you weren't getting in. And that's exactly how I got to the Ohio State University. Just by word of mouth, man. And they flew me up, man, for a visit. The minute I hit ground, that was it. Decision made. Now, that's interesting you say that because a lot of people don't really understand that. That if you are from one of the smaller islands, you aren't playing Kalamazoo, San Diego, none of the USTA, Midwest, all that kind of stuff. Florida sectionals. And so it is about word of mouth and relationships and just international relationships between college coaches and coaches overseas and in Mexico or the Bahamas to actually find players. You know, it ain't just, let me go play Kalamazoo, somebody's going to see me. By the time they get to Kalamazoo, they already got somebody from Europe that they saw, you know what I mean? Or the Bahamas. Right. And then back then, remember, the ITF junior tournaments were done different because it was done by invitation. Well, certain countries had certain allotment, right? Like the United States would get like 10 players in the slams, in the junior slam. Islands like the Bahamas got like one player invited. And of course, I never got invited. For whatever reason, we're not going to get into that. Players before me got invited. My turn, nothing. Players after me got invited. And I was always one or two in my country. But anyway. So you go to the Ohio State University. Did you do your recruiting visit when it was snowing or when it wasn't snowing? You know, we know we see guys in the Midwest trying to fight to go to Florida, UCLA, Texas, TCU, and you went from Miami to Columbus, Ohio. I went luckily in March. It was turning a little, you know. And you know, it was cool, man, because they had block parties and everything, man. And I mean, I was in awe because 64 ,000 students, man, you know, that's the population of my whole island. And I was like, I'm going to go to university with 64 ,000 people. Dang, that was amazing. And I always wanted to go to a big school. So, but never thought of Ohio State. All my friends that played football obviously wanted to go to Ohio State. So they were jealous when I went up there and came back and told them how great it was. Now, how good was the school back then? Were y 'all continuing for a championship? Were y 'all, you know, top 25? What was the story? No, man, we weren't even, we weren't even top, we weren't even top, I don't know, we were top 80, man. You know, we had a good three, four players and we fell off at five and six. And then we had maybe one or two good doubles team. And then we had some injuries on our team that hurt us also. So you can't win with four players. You know what I mean? You need a six players, but the team was great. And I got what I wanted. You had Ernie Fernandez, who was a graduate, would come back and practice and train with me. I had pros that would come in and I was able to hit with them. So to keep myself going. Now, one of my best coaches and persons instrumental in my development, Ron McDaniel, was there at Ohio State with you. So, you know, he always tells us these stories about how great he was. How good was Ron? You know, and by the time he started coaching me, you know, he had the braces on his knee. He had surgery. You know what I mean? So he'd stay in the corner and bang with me cross court. You know what I mean? Yeah. Ronnie was good, man. Ronnie was good. Serving volley. He had a great serve. He had good hands. Ronnie was good. In fact, Ronnie beat me in our challenge matches. It was the only match like I lost in challenge matches. It was Ronnie that won that. We became real tight, real good friends. That was my boy in college, no doubt about it. You know, we still talk tonight. No, he was good. He was good. He did get injured. Unfortunately, we were playing Harvard one time when an overhead came down. And we needed him, man. If we had him, we could beat top 50. One player. But it was unfortunate, man. I felt bad for him.

And then you take that and you get top 100 in the world and make it on the Pro Tour. Yes. And we've seen players win NCAA's and never become top 100. Right. So what made you believe you could make the transition? What was the switch that happened as you go to what then, obviously Ohio State's a big school but a small tennis program at the time, right? To really make that transition. Well, we had a good schedule, number one, which was good. And remember, I found my purpose early. So you know what, when you find your purpose, and I teach this all the time Kamal, nothing's going to stop you. It doesn't matter where you go to school. It doesn't matter if you really want it, you're going to find a way. And my purpose was so deep. I don't care where I went. I was going to find a way to do it. Obviously, I wasn't worried about my tennis. I kept developing and stuff. And I was top 20 in college, despite being at Ohio State and not a powerhouse, I was top 20.
How Dr. Guttorm Toverud Uses the 12-Step Model to Treat Addiction
"Dr. Tovaroud has a PhD in counselor education from UNC, which is University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Greensboro, North Carolina. He has a master's degree in agency counseling from Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina. He is currently a consultant in his own company, GT Consulting. The company provides substance abuse and dependence consulting services within treatment, clinical supervision, program development, assessment and diagnosis, and educational programs. He spent his career in education and conducting workshops regarding substance abuse and dependence. Dr. Tovaroud has conducted workshops for 30 years in both Norway and Sweden, and more than 10 ,000 people now have participated. He is a specialist in using the 12 -step model for treating substance and behavioral addictions, allowing individuals to learn how to live life on life's terms. He teaches at Esther Helga Goodness -Doteers Infect School. This podcast is an infect school podcast. The course he teaches is entitled Professionals Applying the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous. His portion of this training is 50 hours for the infect school. And of course, classes start this September, 2023. The website is infectschool .com to learn more about classes and obtaining a certification in the treatment of food addiction as a counselor. So in my research, Dr. Tovaroud, to prepare for this podcast, I've listened to a lot of hours of your lectures. Not 50 hours, but a lot of hours of your lectures. And they're very good. I've benefited from the detailed and informative instructions. Thank you. Yeah. For those listening that may not know The Big Book, The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous was written in 1939 and has instructions around using a 12 -step program for recovery from addiction. The 12 -step model from The Big Book, which is the instructions, the format, the program, has been used in many substance abuse and behavioral addiction recovery programs, including, of course, alcohol addiction and food addiction recovery programs. It is one of the 100 most published nonfiction books in the world, having surpassed 50 million copies. The course that Dr. Tovaroud conducts centers on the context steps, the action steps, and the fourth dimension of existence, demonstrating how professional counselors can increase their understanding of the 12 -step program and the use of 12 -step fellowships as a resource. The course format is based on using The Big Book as a foundation for treatment. Did I get that right? You did. That was an amazing summary. Well, I kind of worked on it. I took from several different sources, but I think I captured what you do and your work. So start by talking about the work you have done and the work you do. Talk about that. We'd love to hear it. Well, thank you very much. And again, I'm honored to be a guest on Esther Helga's podcast program. I'd like to start off by coming with a disclaimer. I do not speak on behalf of Alcoholics Anonymous, and no one does. And that's one of the reasons that they actually wrote the book and it's word of mouth to represent what they wrote. And then subsequently, it is conference -approved literature. And both the Fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous and most other 12 -step fellowships do not want personal representatives. So my focus is that we are professionals applying, using what is written, and therefore we're, in many respects, bound to what is written. And in the introduction and the prefaces of the book, it states that in this fourth edition, that part of the book, which explains the 12 -step recovery program, is more or less unchanged from 1939. Yes. And so all of us that are 12 -step counselors, everything was decided in 1939 and what we are to convey in a clinical setting and from a therapeutic perspective. We have nothing to do with the fellowships and therefore it's an application. We've chosen as professionals to use this book in our clinical work with clients. So again, I do not represent AA or any other 12 -step program. This is a clinical application. I understand that and I understand the reason for saying that. And so, but it is a textbook, and you use this textbook to train professionals on how to counsel their clients. So talk about that work that you've done all these years. Is it 35 years you've done it? So for, yeah, so for 35 years, I have been using this book. I sort of say that I've been hiding out in Scandinavia, trying to fine tune how to actually use what is written in the textbook, not only in a clinical setting, but also as a profession. And then after I met Esther, she asked me if I would be willing to expand into an international audience. And initially, I was hesitant, but you can't say no to Esther. So - No, haven't yet. I agreed to do that and it has actually opened up a whole new world for me. And I realize that other people besides Norwegians and Swedes can actually benefit from the work that I have done. And since I do have a doctorate degree in Counselor Education, I've been able to unlock some of these codes that are in the book in terms of using it as our manual. And it's very interesting how we can then start at the beginning of the book, and that's what I do in the lecture series, and then I demonstrate. We read this out loud, and then we say this. And then I say, but now you can't say this because it's coming up later. But you need to know now that in three pages, they're gonna come back to this particular point. So you need to highlight that now. And so make sure that that is in place before you go on. So it really is a detailed approach, almost reading every single word, which is why it takes me about 50 hours. And then I compliment those, the lectures with visual slides. Yes, yeah. And they then help make it become a more pedagogically appropriate understanding. So we have the text on one side, we have the slides on the other side, and then we have the lectures accompanying that.
A highlight from Private cellular is the way to go, GXC helps deliver enterprise 5G, designed for hard-to-reach locations without fiber, improves security posture: Podcast
"This is Doug Green, and I'm the publisher of TR Publications, and I'm with Alan Proethas of GXE. Alan, thank you for joining me today. Well, thanks for having me. And you're the CEO of GXE. What is GXE? GXE, we are a provider of enterprise 5G networks. So what we do is help enable connectivity for all your business critical applications. Now, what are you doing here at Mobile World Congress? Well, you know, it's mandatory, my contract, I have to go to all the mobile conferences it feels like. But this is a great gathering of just a lot of people from the industry, including some key partners and customers. So you just announced a deal to provide Ohio State University with private cellular solutions for select research facilities. Why were you selected? Well, it's pretty easy. There's the private cellular aspect, and then there's why us in particular. So first of all, the reason that a lot of enterprises and universities are starting to private cellular is that Wi -Fi is really great in the carpet areas of the world, but it tends to fail in big open spaces, whether they're industrial manufacturing buildings or outside areas, especially. In fact, for every one private cellular access point, you need 10 for Wi -Fi. It's just the nature of the technology. And so if you look at the SmartAg segment, they're trying to connect more and more sensors and just use that data to control and improve their operations. And so really private cellular is the trick. On top of that, we're the only company in the world with a mesh cellular technology. So just like at home, you plug in your core Wi -Fi and you have backhaul on it. But the rest of the house, you just have power, you plug in a box. And we are the only people in the world that can do that with private cellular. So the idea that you could extend your network by a mile or two without having to run a mile or two of fiber for backhaul is a game changer for an agricultural operation. I was just going to say, this is the type of operation that that's just perfect for. Just absolutely perfect. I mean, we do a lot of installations without mesh as well, but a lot of these, what mesh gives you the ability is the flexibility and the future proofing, where you have maybe a temporary need or an unforeseen need. But for agriculture and for outside applications especially, private cellular just really covers a lot of area. Just for comparison, you'll get about 25 ,000 square feet out of a Wi -Fi access point. You can get closer to 300 ,000 square feet out of a cellular access point. So again, Wi -Fi is great, has its place, reviewed as complimentary, but for some of these outdoor applications, especially private cellular is the way to go. And that's why private cellular is the best application for these outdoor applications? Especially for outdoor. For indoor as well, because again, Wi -Fi is great in the office, but when you have to worry about security and you have to worry about coverage and every nook and cranny, and when you want control of your data, that's where private cellular particularly shots. Alan, do you have a partner program? Yeah, we do. In fact, in a perfect world, every single thing we do would be through a partner in that the partner's the expert really. The partner knows the customer, the partner knows the particular industry or vertical use case. And so we try to be the best connectivity platform provider in the world. And then the partner can bring in the implementation, they can bring in the integration, they can actually do tier one through support if they do that, and often a lot of the application side as well, depending on what their capabilities are. So it's a way that everybody benefits. Is AI impacting GXE? Absolutely, because when you look at AI, as a friend of mine jokes, AI is just really software. But what the food for AI is data. And so the ability to collect data consistently and securely from your operation inside and out really is the food that feeds AI for AI to really do its job. So just as we constantly see the demand and the generation of data growing, being able to get that data to the right place is going to grow. So it's an integral part of what we're doing. So that's a big part of your story here. Absolutely. Where can we find more about GXE? Thank you very much for taking some time to talk to me today. I hope we get to do this again. Great. Thank you, Doug.

A highlight from The First Edition of Would You Let Joe Biden"
"Good morning America. Good Monday. Some of you are getting up and getting out the door. I'm glad I am with you. I'm Hugh Hewitt in Studio North going down to the Beltway this week. Oh, back to the Beltway. Gotta go do my work. Gotta go do my job. I want you to begin this segment with me by reflecting on how bad can the polls actually get for one person. Because John Ellis, now you've heard me mention John. John has been on the show before. Ellis on items the site formerly known as Twitter, now known as X, he produces two sub stacks. News items, which I read every morning before I go on the air. That's where I learned about Amazon investing in AI this morning. And political items, which is a second sub stack. And that just collects all the political data. And for years and years and years, John Ellis was the man behind the curtain at News Corp. And he ran the decision desk when it actually ran well. And he ran many, many other things at News Corp. And he's a very, very smart guy. So Ellis puts out these two news sub stacks that I read. And one of them, political items, carries with it the additional benefit of sparing me from having to figure out which polls to read. Because every couple of weeks or three weeks, he puts out the polls in one place. So John Ellis knows polling. He knows which ones are trash. He does not send you the trash one. So I ignore all polls until I see a poll show up in the news items or political items. So polls in one place rolled in on Saturday morning. And I don't want to get sued for copyright. You should subscribe to polls in one place and political items. But John summarized three of these. Number one, NBC News. Three quarters of voters say they're concerned about President Joe Biden's age and mental fitness. Three quarters. Three quarters. Number two, Washington Post ABC News. A Washington Post ABC News poll finds President Biden struggling to gain approval from a skeptical public. With dissatisfaction growing over his handling of the economy and immigration, a rising share saying the United States is doing too much to aid Ukraine in its war with Russia, and broad concerns about his age as he seeks a second term. More than three in five Democrats say they would prefer a nominee other than Biden. And the Post ABC poll shows Joe Biden trailing Donald Trump by 10 points. Then number three, the New York Times. President Biden is underperforming among nonwhite voters in the New York Times Santa College national polls over the last year. And this result marked a — represent a, quote, marked deterioration in Mr. Biden's support among non -Anglo voters. Those are the three big polls of the weekend, and they're all related to Joe Biden's age. So I've asked Generalissimo to assist me in diagnosing the problem here. And so just a yes or no, are you with me, Generalissimo? No. All right, good. Would you let Joe Biden prepare dinner for eight people?

No. Would you let him run a high school speech tournament? Too many kids, no. How about a swim meet? No. Would you let Joe Biden run any business with 10 employees? No. Would you let him run a business with 100 employees? No. Would you let him do HR for a business with 10 employees? No. Would you let him run the gift wrap sales fundraiser for your kids school? No. Would you let him run the thrift shop inventory day? No. Would you let him run a car dealership? Negative. Would you let him run a church fundraiser? No. A church service? No. A service station?

No. Would you let him run the change of command at any duty station for any branch of the armed services anywhere in the Americas or in the worldwide distribution of our defense facilities? Not unless you wanted to create an incident, no. Would you let him drive a truck? Well, he's already claimed it, no. Would you let him drive a car that you're riding in the passenger seat? Not unless I was heavily insured. Would you let him fire a pistol at a range? Oh, hell no. Would you let him fire a rifle at a range? No. A machine gun? No. Bazooka? No. Would you let him get into a tank and fire a tank? I'm seeing a pattern here, no. Would you let him direct the drone strike? No. Would you let him drive a little tiny boat whaler, you know, a 12 -foot whaler? I would let him pilot your dinghy, no. Would you let him drive a criss -craft with an outboard motor? No. Of a yacht, a big yacht? No. Would you let him command the deck of a freighter? A freighter? No. How about a destroyer? Uh, I'm thinking not. Submarine? No. Aircraft carrier? No. All right. Could you imagine Stav with him on deck? What would you let Joe Biden do? Retire. No, but I mean, really, seriously, is there anything you'd let him do to put him in charge of, because this is my first edition of would you let Joe Biden dot, dot, dot? Nothing complicated because he gets confused easy. Nothing with kids because we kind of know about that. No, there's nothing the guy can do. He has shown no knowledge of market economics, free market economics. He has no idea how supply and demand works. No, but I'm just talking about give me something that he can do because we've got to get a retirement hobby for him. A retirement hobby? Checkers. Do you think he could win at checkers ever? It's yeah, he could he could run he could run an ice cream stand. I we I covered that. You were gonna let him run a 7 -Eleven. I don't know. I covered the gift wrap. 7 -Eleven is more complicated than an ice cream stand because gas is involved. But but I asked you about the the gift wrap fundraising. I want every mom in America ice cream. Well, no, every parent driving to school in America right now knows fall is the season for fundraisers. So we got the call from the granddaughter over the weekend. Hey, Nana, which is the fetching Mrs. Hewitt, right? Would you buy gift wrap? And of course, we're probably gonna have enough gift wrap for the rest of the five seasons. Yeah, yeah. Five seasons of gift wrap. Yes. And and now the flash is probably going to come up with candy bar. You know, it's just fundraising season, right? And so it's better than raffle tickets. I hate raffle tickets. Yeah. Gift wrap you can at least put in the closet and it'll be there when when she has to clean out the house. You are what we call in in in the school trade. You are what we call an easy mark. A mark. Yeah. Yes. And and you wouldn't even let Joe button out. For those of you who are new to the audience, we've added affiliates recently. Dwayne is an ex band parent who keeps getting dragged back in. And when he was a band parent, he ran parking at the at the battle of the band. Do you know what I'm doing now? Do you know what I'm doing this this year? What I'm doing? What? I had to stand up along with my wife, stand up a snack bar outside of girls volleyball. All right. Would you let Joe Biden run that? Not in your wildest dreams, because because one money's involved and two girls are nearby. But I mean, OK, then Paul back a year or two. No, you let him direct parking at the Battle of the Bands. Oh, not unless you wanted a wreck.
A highlight from Shouting Down Charlie
"What am I oh yes last night I was speaking I was actually having a dialogue with Dr. Simone Gold frontline doctors for the Children's Defense Fund or no no it's the Children's Health Defense sorry that is a Robert F Kennedy Jr.'s group and I'm just offering this in passing in case you're ever challenged. If you say that truth is not a left -wing value, it is a liberal value, and it is a conservative value, but it is not a left -wing value, it never has been. Truth does not matter to the left. It matters to liberals, not all but many, and to conservatives, not all but many. At least it's a value in those two groups. So, this I found to be very effective. If the left believed in truth, would they say, men menstruate? That is, I think, the most powerful example you could offer, that truth is a joke, is a farce, is an impediment to leftism. That's it. Just give that example. If you do not say, men menstruate, you are considered by the left to be a hater, a bigot, and anti -science. But every single one of you listening knows it is an enormous lie, men do not menstruate. It is a gigantic… You can't say anything. If you said the earth is flat, it would be equivalent and probably truer because the land you are on now, the floor you are on now, is flat. There are vast numbers of places on earth where the earth is flat, but there is no place on earth where a man menstruates. If your child comes home and says, men give birth, or men menstruate, you know that they have been poisoned to the extent that they regard truth as a farce. It is an irrelevant question. Is it true, irrelevant? Just like, was it irrelevant that it was a lie that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia? It was a lie. It was as enormous as men menstruate. And they got Pulitzer Prizes at the Washington Post and the New York Times for perpetuating that lie, which the Columbia Journalism Review, Columbia is about as woke as you can get, but for some reason, God bless them, Columbia Journalism Review actually was committed to truth and said it wasn't true. It was a terrible time for American journalism. A terrible time for American journalism started very early. The New York Times reporting that there was no famine in Ukraine in 1932. Corrupt, despicable Walter Duranty was basically bribed with room and board and women by Stalin to report lies on behalf of the Soviet government. The New York Times never returned that prize. The Pulitzer Prizes never announced that they have rescinded it. Now they will say, well, it wasn't given for that, but I find that to be as farcical as the original reporting. Charlie Kirk went to Northern Arizona University and the reception is very scary. It is scary. We have young people who have been trained to be like the Soviet Youth League, come some old, brainwashed drones of evil. Well, Charlie Kirk went to speak and they were screaming, F .U., of course, they said the word fascist. Charlie Kirk drowned out by protesters on Arizona college visit, I'll be with Charlie at Arizona State University next week. Next week, if you have a seventh cousin who attends ASU, have them come to our speeches. Next Wednesday night, that's a week from today in Phoenix, Charlie Kirk laughs his mob of smelly overweight. Okay, I'm not going to read that, that's a tweet, we don't need it. F .U. fascist, you fascist. The screaming, I tell you, the screaming, why don't right wing students scream and curse at left wing speakers? Even they when constituted half the campus or even a majority of the campus, did they ever do this? I'm asking a question, they may have, I'm simply not aware of it. It's like, do any adult children who are Republican refuse to speak to a parent because the parent voted Democrat? You certainly have left wing children who don't speak to a parent because the parent voted for a Republican, but it doesn't work in both directions, does it? So again, we will be there next week. Charlie sent me a very long report on this from Mediaite, it's longer than the one from Daily Beast.
A highlight from Joshua Stone Interview - Bringing Books To Web3, Book.io Books on the Blockchain, Mark Cuban Investment, Cardano ADA
"Welcome back to the Thinking Crypto podcast, your home for cryptocurrency news and interviews. With me today is Joshua Stone, who's the CEO and co -founder of Book .io. Joshua, great to have you on the show. Yeah, thanks for having me here. Appreciate it. Well, Joshua, I think it's timely that I'm speaking with you because I'm in the process of writing a book. And so I'm very curious about Book .io and what are the other options for me as a soon -to -be author where I can publish my book on the blockchain and get some additional benefits. Before we get into all that, though, tell us about yourself, where you're from, where you grew up. Yeah, for sure. So I grew up in Oklahoma. When I'm traveling, I like to tell people I grew up in Indian territory and, you know, kind of encapsulates this sort of free spirit, unregulated environment that I just kind of grew up in. And my dad was an electronics engineer. My mom is a really incredible amateur artist. So I grew up in a very left brain, right brain kind of background. And what was your professional career before founding or co -founding Book .io? Yeah. I got online. Like I said, my dad with the electronics engineering, I got online really, really early and kind of got fascinated with this intersection of graphic and engineering kind of where they cross over. So I really gravitated more towards like a product design and user experience strategy side of things. So I actually got my first large job out of school. I went to Oklahoma State University and worked on the very first version of Fandango for Subark. And that was back in 99 and then worked at some larger internet companies that did a bunch of stuff for AT &T, led the product group for hotels .com with Expedia, and then kind of got more into the startup scene, was in a social media startup that sold. And that kind of got my interest into the book publishing industry. So I actually previously had co -founded an ebook company that we specialized in bulk distribution of eBooks to universities and really large organizations. And we sold that back in 20, I think we sold in 2015, I stayed till 2018. And so, I had kind of approached the book industry from a technologist sort of standpoint. And yeah, and then took some time off after that, really got just super deep into crypto and tried to kind of determine my next startup. I wanted to be a Web3 based company. That's awesome, man. Because you have a Web1, well, you have experience in Web1 and Web2, and now you're building in Web3. That's pretty incredible. What was your first encounter with Bitcoin? I'm always fascinated by folks' different stories, and what was your aha moment? Yeah, I feel like a lot of the story is always like a story of frustration of, I wish I would have. And so, I read the first white paper pretty quickly after it came out, just because I was in a social media startup. So that stuff like circulated quickly of like, oh, there's this internet money thing. And I talked to some engineers and I'm not heavy engineer. I've done some engineering stuff, but at that time, I wasn't capable of studying, I guess I could have really went and stood up a stack and tried to figure out how to mine it, but I tried to convince some engineers to mine it. And that happened a couple of different times. And it was a kind of classic argument of like, hey, this will cost us more in electricity than we'll ever make. And in hindsight, it's like, dang it, I should have just put them in a headlock and made them do it. So, it wasn't really until 2017 that I came around and jumped back in where I could actually start to buy from exchanges easily. I think at that time, maybe Coinbase only had like four coins listed. And so, I spent a lot of time on like foreign based exchanges and just really like diving super, super deep and through all the kind of ICO crazes of 2018 and the crash and yeah, I think I really was becoming more obsessed with what does blockchain mean at like a bigger level from a, just like a decentralized nature and like how, my entire career up to that point, just like sort of thinking like what all would need to be re -architected in this way of like a decentralized blockchain based way. Oh yeah, for sure. So, tell us about book .io, how did that idea come about and what are the different services? How does it work and so forth? Yeah. So, Yeah. you know, one of the biggest hindrances in crypto in my mind has always been just like mass adoptability, right? Like making it accessible to the masses. A lot of times, like I pick on my mom and just say, you know, my mom's not going to use this, you know? Yeah. So, you know, it occurred to me at some point that, you know, all books could be decentralized, like the actual contents of them and be blockchain based. So, you know, a big issue in the book industry, which you'll definitely experience now that you're working on a book is, you know, if you buy an ebook or an audio book from Kindle or Audible or iBooks, you're not really buying the book. You just buy a license to view the content. So, you don't actually own anything, which is why you can't sell it or give it away when you're done reading it. So, making it a book, a blockchain based asset actually changes from a digital licensing to a digital ownership model and that allows you to resell the book. So, you know, when you look at the entire landscape of crypto, there's like, you know, less than a hundred million total wallets, but there's over a billion people that buy digital books every year. So, like by far and away, like digital books are the biggest digital asset that people currently buy on like an a la carte basis since most of music and movies are streaming. So, you know, we have a focus that's very, you know, targeted at true mass adoption and, you know, experiencing the tech benefits. So, really more of a, you know, web two usability, but with a web three functionality. And then even in, you know, inside of that current licensing model, what's really radical, you know, once you buy a book, of course it's stuck on your shelf, but then it also gives the retailer, the author, the publisher, anybody, the right to remove that book from you. It's like literally coming in your house and just like taking a book off your shelf that you bought or changing any of the contents inside of it. So, our mission really became two things. One is to decentralize all of human knowledge and put all books on the blockchain so they can't be changed or taken away. And then second is incentivizing reading. So, really, you know, the core kind of the process of how it works is like we take any media asset could be, you know, a book or a music or video, we break it into a bunch of shards and we encrypt all those and store them in decentralized storage. Then we have a DAP web based reader and we also have mobile apps, mobile reading apps that basically stream those contents in, reassemble and decrypt them and then allow you to read it. So, we sort of, you know, while we use an NFT and decentralized storage and like, you know, smart contracts to program and royalties and all that, we sort of summate all that into an asset that we call a decentralized encrypted asset. So, then you truly own it. You could lend it out. You can give it away. Has huge impact, you know, not just for the end user, but also for the creators, because as you know, you'll experience with your book, you know, once, you know, the traditional model on the payment side is very, is very archaic, you know, like you, if you go the traditional route, you're going to be looking at, you know, you might get some small advance. It's not nearly what the old advances were. And, and then it's going to be probably a year to 18 months before you see anything, you know, from that book. Whereas, you know, when it's blockchain based, it's immediate, it's instant, it's paid out. So yeah, we launched the platform a little over a year ago. We've already sold over 160 ,000 books. And, and we've had some books trade as high as like $10 ,000 for like really unique books. Wow. That's pretty incredible. So, and I want to make sure I emphasize the benefits because I know there's going to be people who are new to blockchain crypto and say, oh, so what I get my book on Amazon, but, um, as the author, uh, there, this feature creates a secondary market, right? For the book is let's say, um, Joe down the street buys my book. He has on a blockchain, he finished reading it. He's like, oh, you know what? I'm going to sell this. Now, if he sells it, he's making a return. And then I, as an author also getting a royalty there. Yeah, absolutely. So that, I mean, that really is the big difference, right? It's like on a traditional print side, you know, I have the freedom when I buy a print book, I can take it to a secondhand, you know, resell bookstore, but I don't even really know what it's worth, you know, and then they're giving me, you know, pennies on the dollar and I'm happy to take it. Cause I have no way to substantiate if that's what that book is worth versus if it's digital, then I can see, you know, multiple global marketplaces and see what the trading, you know, what the actual trading price for that book is right. And then every time it sells and resells and continues, like it's giving you the creator, you know, royalties back, which is really cool from a social side too. Right. So, you know, current kind of, you know, opaque kind of wall with, with an Amazon and iBooks is that, you know, publisher author doesn't have any connection to their audience. So they can't see who owns their books. They can't market to those people. So with this, it's like, it's all on chain, right? Like we couldn't hide it. If we wanted to hide it, they can see who has their book. So then as an author, right. You could go airdrop like, you know, an extra chapter of a book to everybody that has your book, or you could allow them, you know, if they have that book, then in their wallet, they could, they could get a discount on the second book. Like you can begin to merchandise and do things that are just like impossible in the traditional version. Wow. So that's pretty incredible. You said you can airdrop like additional chapters or I don't know, additional information or anything attached to the book. That's, that's pretty incredible. Yeah. It can be a short story or, you know, extra behind the scenes type stuff, like how the book was created. It could be video stuff, author interviews, like all kinds of additional content that you can't get or deliver in a traditional method. Plus, you know, like a social interactivity of, you know, we're building out a structure for, for book clubs as well. Right. So, you know, there's not, there hasn't really been a good solve for like online book clubs. And like, part of the problem is you get so many trolls that come in and you see this on Amazon, like with reviews, right. It's like a book hasn't even come out and all of a sudden it's got, you know, 8 ,000 negative reviews in our system. We can see and verify if you've actually read it. So not only would you have to own a book, but we could, we could put it in place where you have to own it and you would have had to read it in order to get access to a book club and maybe the authors in there participating as well. Right. So it creates a richer, like, you know, environment for discussion. Oh yeah. I was going to bring up the reviews thing and verifying users because that is a game or something that is gained, I should say, with ratings and reviews and it could be manipulated. Now you mentioned that there's a lending feature. So let's say once again, Joe down the street buys my book, he, that person, he or she can lend the book out. And tell us how that, how that works. Yeah. So a lot of times what we say is, you know, everybody's a bookstore, everybody's a library. Right. Because if I, if I have the ability, you know, globally to lend out my book or to sell it, like then you could come and you could rent it for a particular price. Right. And we put that in a smart contract. You could either pay it or it could just be like a free thing. And, you know, one party's covering the transaction costs or, you know, in our method, like we haven't really talked about yet, but we have a token, you know, the person reading it could earn the token that the person that owns it could read the token that somebody else is who's, who's borrowing it is, is reading it. Like there's a ton of different ways to, to construct it, but it really changes the, the idea of, you know, it almost like makes micro libraries of everybody. Right. Then I could borrow from anyone. That's great. Yeah. Because I think about that sometimes I see different books and I'm like, I don't know if I want to buy this or necessarily, and I don't want to have a ton of books in, in, in my home. I do appreciate physical books, but I do have some digital books, but to be able to rent something and then just go see, you know, is this, is this good or whatever, and, you know, I actually want to own this. That makes sense. So tell us about the incentivization of getting folks to read. Is that how the token plays a part in the ecosystem? And if you can tell us about the book token. Yeah, definitely. So it really, it really does like an issue inside of, of the publishing industry, really. And when you start to look at the statistics behind it, it's like, you know, people do buy books and the publishing industry in general is hoping that people read those books, but a lot of times it becomes like just very commoditized. And it's like, they're just trying to sell you the next book and selling the next book. And so when you look at the stats on like how many people per year are reading and like averaging down, and it's like, what we're trying to do is build in an incentive program. So people actually consume this knowledge because very clear data, you know, supports when people read books like society, like definitely progresses, there's less crime, there's more, you know, GDP. So the, you know, that kind of secondary part outside of decentralizing the incentivizing portion of it is we have a read to earn system. So whenever you get a book, you read it, you're earning tokens while you're reading it. And we have kind of a whole distribution schedule and like how the mechanics of all that work. We just released a new white paper that details in kind of great detail, like how all that functions. And then we actually have a initial token offering going on right now as well. We waited a long time to do that. Like we launched the product, we launched all the apps. We started selling books before, you know, and a lot of it was just like from a regulatory reason of wanting to do things exactly the right way. Oh yeah. Yeah, that definitely makes sense. Now there was news that Mark Cuban was collaborating with book .io to release an NFT ebook on the Polygon blockchain. Can you tell us about that and how that partnership came about? Yeah, for sure. So Mark was actually one of our earliest investors and came on board. And at the time we were Cardano based. So we argued back and forth a lot about other chains, which we had always had a very multi -chain strategy, which I'll say real quick too. Like our, you know, we deployed to four different blockchains. We deployed to Ethereum, to Polygon, to Cardano and to Algorand. But yeah, Mark was one of our first investors in. And so we worked through his publisher as well with him, created a bunch of different, the way that our construct kind of works is, we don't limit a book to like a single book cover, like it can have tons of different book covers. So that makes those different covers collectible for different reasons. So with him, I think we did about 400 different covers. Some of those were like rendered pictures of like him fighting sharks and stuff, like all kinds of fun stuff. And he actually thought it was really, really cool. So it just gives you a whole lot more flexibility. And I'll say too, like on the investor side, like Mark's been a great investor, like great advisor, lots of great like networking. I think I was a little hesitant, like just from all that, you know, what you see on Shark Tank, but like his group's fantastic. You know, we really only have two other investors. We have Ingram Content, which is the world's largest book distributor, and they actually distribute and warehouse all the books for Amazon. And then we also have Bertelsmann, which owns Penguin Random House, and they're the largest trade publisher. So we've tried to really be selective about our investors and working within the industry. But yeah, Mark's been great and all the guys at Polygon, the Polygon team has been great to work with as well. That's awesome. Are there other publishers that you're targeting and trying to work with and, you know, what's your strategy? Is it getting them to integrate book .io as another option? Tell us about that. And I don't know how much you can, you know, tell us about your strategy. Yeah. Yeah. So we've I think we, you know, we're somewhere around 20, maybe publishers or so that we've we've had sign up. You know, the publishing industry is very splintered. There's there's basically five main, you know, the big five publishers and they own a bunch of imprints and then there's a bunch of kind of mid tier and smaller ones. And so, like, you know, some total like our last publishing company, like we had close to 200000 different publishers signed with us. You kind of have to go like some of them you get like in big and big batches, right? Some of them are just like one on one. So like a lot of it right now, and especially over the last kind of beginning or last year was just a lot of experimentation, right? So it was going to publishers that we've worked with before in the past and saying, Hey, let's do like a test project together so we can like see what happens and gather some data and make some choices. So like this year's like much more on like the scale up side. We're going to be releasing audio books as well. And delving so into that and like how we do more mass ingestion. But, you know, ultimately, it's like what we're introducing back in is not necessarily say, you know, you know, we think we'll just dominate Amazon and it goes away or anything like that. It's more of a both end, right? Like you could, you know, I see that as like licensing and like streaming almost. And this is like ownership, right? So for the for the audiences and the authors and the people creators that care about ownership, like we provide like that mechanism and all the benefits that go with it. And it reintroduces the, you know, um, just the law of supply and demand, right? When it's digital licensing, there's, there's an infinite supply. It drives down, uh, you know, the price when there's a limited supply, then the price actually makes a difference. So then I can buy a book, you know, for $20, I can read it and maybe it's gone up in value and I can sell it for, you know, 25 or something. Even if I could sell it for half of what I bought it for, I still get more back than, than I do. If I buy that as an, you know, a licensed book. Yeah, no, that's great. And I love the secondary market options that open up with this new world of blockchain and tokenization. So Joshua, you know, you mentioned Amazon, uh, you guys are certainly a disruptive platform. Uh, if I could put it that way, let's say Amazon comes knocking on your door and saying, Hey, we want to acquire you. We want to integrate book .io into our, because we got the biggest marketplace, you know, what would be your thought process? And would you say yes, depending on the number? Yeah. I mean, you know, we get that question sort of semi often, which is kind of funny. Um, you know, I, I think that, uh, if, if this, if the situation was right and an Amazon was, you know, if, if we, if it was functioned in a way that like it kept the core model, right. So like if they didn't, uh, if, if the idea was to integrate and like expand what currently exists into digital ownership, right. Like, I think that makes sense. And some of the stuff they've done with like avalanche and, you know, some of the integration stuff, it's like, I think they, they see that, I think they're a bit more hesitant just from the regulatory perspective to like jump in to that kind of thing. And what we're doing is definitely, you know, quite, quite a bit different, but like, you know, we're, we're doing great. Like the team's grown in a bear market. Like we're adding employees and we're, you know, we're right at profitable. So we don't have any like reason to, to try to rush out and sell. And I think we're going to continue to grow. And I think we're, you know, we have an, you know, community that's, that has materialized behind it that just really agrees with the ethos of, you know, you really should own the things that you buy. So I don't see us, um, selling anytime soon. And even if we did, it would only be to like expand and, um, you know, continue the mission not to, to, uh, to end it or have it just shelved, you know? Oh yeah. I mean, I certainly, I think you and I being in this space, we can certainly agree. This is the future with block tokenization and fractionalization, secondary markets, and much more. It's just the adoption curve. And, uh, just like web one had its adoption curve web two, and now web three has its time. Um, you know, you mentioned Algorand, uh, polygon, Cardano and so forth. Are you planning to expand to other chains as well? Uh, yeah, we probably will. We don't have any plans to expand to any others. Right. Right now, um, we've done some interesting things with, with a few of the chains. Um, we gave a book away at consensus with Algorand to all the attendees. Like we're, we're doing some other expansion stuff or we'll be announcing some, some really cool stuff we're about to do with polygon as well. Um, so just trying to work with, with the chains that we have right now. And, you know, a big issue for publishers is really, uh, you know, I mean, when you get down to it, it's like they chop down trees to make print books. Right. So they, at first were very adverse to, um, to anything blockchain based, right. Especially when it was, you know, like when Ethereum was proof of stake. Um, so they, some of them have had corporate mandates where they would only work with it with a proof of work and they would only work with a proof of stake chain. So, you know, the ones that we've selected, I think, uh, encompass like a, a, a decent size portion of the market, not to say we won't integrate, but like, you know, kind of a thesis on being a multi -chain company is that we really want to be a platform. So creators could deploy to other chains. So we've talked to a couple of others as well. We just haven't put anything official on the roadmap yet. Hmm. Now more of a personal question for me and maybe other authors who are going to watch and listen to this, we'll have this question. So like I'm already in the process. I'm, I'm signed with a publisher. The book is right on tentative date launch next year. Could I go that traditional route, but also integrate with book .io and, you know, have you guys thought about a strategy for authors like myself who, you know, we would want to do both and how would that work? Yeah, for sure. So I think today, like of the hundred something books that we've done, like, um, a little over a third of them have been with, um, with publishers or with, um, with authors. So, you know, basically the way it works is, um, you know, you would just connect this with your publisher and then we work through like exactly what kind of program you would want to do. Right. So, um, we just kind of define those details. Um, we walked through with the publisher, what, you know, exactly how it works most of the time. Like, you know, we're doing limited quantity sort of collectible type stuff right now, but we have the capability to do like a mass, like we actually just, uh, sold a book yesterday that, you know, wasn't necessarily a collectible. It had just a regular singular cover. That's the same cover that's on the print book. Um, and, uh, you know, and it's sold out in like 20 seconds or something. Right. So the publisher's super excited because they've never seen anything like that in publishing. Um, and so it's a great way to drive, like kind of viral traffic and like excitement. So what we found too, is what ends up happening. We've seen this like multiple times in a row is like, we would do something with an author and then it will directly correlate to an increase in print sales because people get that book, they're excited about it. Then they would go and they're like, Hey, actually, you know, I want to own both. And so that's actually one of the things we're working on with our, our, um, uh, partnership with, with Ingram is what we call mint and print so that you could just buy the digital and automatically get the physical, uh, dropshipped to you at the same time. Oh, wow. Yeah. That's really cool. Um, so walk us through the user experience. Um, let's say someone's listening to this and like, you know, I want to go check out book .io. Maybe they have some books that I'll be interested in. Is there, obviously you have a website, is there an app and with purchasing, um, is it crypto and Fiat or both? Yeah. So, uh, so, I mean, we're trying to make it, um, very much, like I said, you know, web to functionality. So it's very easy to sign up. Um, we do take credit cards. So, um, on, uh, you know, you can, you can buy a book with a credit card. It's easy to set up an account. And actually like the, uh, the, the giveaway things that we're doing, the promotional stuff, like you don't even have to have a wallet. Um, we're getting to the point where you won't, you won't even have to have a wallet. You don't have to store seed phrase. You don't have to do any of that. All of it's like self -driven kind of in the background. Um, and so you don't have to buy with crypto. You don't have to know anything about crypto, um, and just making it real easy onboarding process for like, you know, the billion plus people that are honestly just not going to go take the time to learn crypto. Yeah. I've been talking a lot about that recently. With a variety of folks. Um, how do we make it easy for the next billion people? And like you, I've kind of used my mom, my dad as an example. Right. Cause like, they don't know that, like they see the wallet addresses. They're like, what the hell is that? They're scared of it. Right. It's intimidating. I still have to show my mom how to do certain things on her smartphone. So I, you know, but certainly like she's interested in, in crypto and blockchain and, you know, I've invested some of her funds in it, but yeah, to your point. How do we make it easy for the next billion people have the capabilities, but make it make the gooey easy for them. Right. Yeah. One of the funniest comments I got recently, which I won't say who it came from. Um, somebody within my family, um, was like, wait a minute, there's more than one blockchain. Cause like they thought blockchain was like internet, you know, thought it was one big blockchain, you know, which like from the outside, it was like, I never really thought about that, but it's like, if you really didn't know anything about it, you might think like, blockchain is just like internet. And they're like, you know, maybe there's only one and it's like, it's just, it's such a barrier. And so I feel like a lot of times, like in the crypto side, like we're in this bubble where it's like, you know, we're really excited about the technology and stuff, but other people just don't, they don't have the, it's not like, you know, intelligence thing. It's just like, they don't have the time to like onboard and figure all that stuff out. So like, how do we, how do we meet them where they are, bring the solutions and like the benefit of web three and what it actually provides to them, like directly to them. Yeah, yeah, absolutely. And I think more, more companies building in a space need to think about that. Not just for the crypto native folks here, but yeah, like you said, the next billion people who, you know, they've heard about it in passing, they don't, they haven't used any type of crypto or done anything and we got to make it easy for them. So what's on the remainder of your roadmap for 2023? We do have quite a bit of stuff planned. So a lot of it, you know, like I said, you know, we launched like a year ago, so we're really trying to kind of scale up in a lot of different spots. So you know, at the top of that list right now is, is definitely audio books. And then we have a marketplace also that we're launching. And actually on the audio book side, we have one of the larger audio book companies that we just signed with, which is super exciting to have some like celebrity read audio books. And that's like a real growing market segment as well, just in general within publishing, which is very exciting. We have a lot of AI tools and development that are maybe more focused on publisher author, like, you know, helping them out you know, continue updating the reading apps. And then we have some really big author launches coming up that are going to be like, they're pretty massive, like celebrity level authors that are going to be launching some projects with us, which is super exciting. No, that's awesome. Well, I certainly after this conversation, you and I need to chat because of my own book. But yeah, that's exciting, man. And I love the idea of well, you know, you mentioned it's a growing part of the market of celebrity read books. Yeah, I certainly would want to listen to Morgan Freeman read a book.
A highlight from Is There a Correlation Between Losing Faith and Moving? | An Interview with Ryan Gottfredson
"So you're checking us out as maybe a potential podcast you could start listening to. I know many of you have been listening for a long time, but let me just talk to the newbies for a minute. What is Leading Saints? What are we trying to do here with this podcast? Let me explain. Leading Saints is a nonprofit organization, a 501c3 is what they call it, and we have a mission to help Latter -day Saints be better prepared to lead. Now, of course, often means in the context of a calling. It may mean in your local community, your work assignments. We've heard about our content influencing all sorts of leaders in all sorts of different contexts. We invite you to listen to this episode and maybe a few others of our 500 plus episodes that we have out there, jump in and begin to learn and begin to consider some of these principles we talk about on the Leading Saints podcast. Here we go. Well, you're always in for a treat when Ryan Gottfordsen is on the podcast. I've forgotten how many times we've been on the podcast, but if you go to Google and type in Leading Saints and then Ryan Gottfordsen and look at all the episodes that come up, by the way, that's the easiest way to search for content on Leading Saints. Just go to Google, type in Leading Saints, then whatever keyword, and you'll usually find what you're looking for. Now, Ryan, if you're not familiar with Ryan, he's a Ph .D., really smart fellow. He's a mindset author, researcher and consultant. He's written some phenomenal books. Here's another Leading Saints tip. If you go to LeadingSaints .org slash books, you will find a list of our top most recommended books for church leaders in the context of, in various contexts, depending on what issue you're dealing with. Then Ryan's books are on that list and they're so helpful and awesome. Ryan's also currently a leadership and management professor at the College of Business and Economics at California State University, Fullerton. He holds a Ph .D. in organizational behavior and human resources from Indiana University and a bachelor's from Brigham Young University. He basically has the career path, the education path. If I was a better student, I probably would have gone the path of Ryan, and it's going to be obvious why in this discussion. We talk about this dynamic that happens, maybe you haven't noticed, maybe you have, but when people leave the church or step away from their faith, they often do it in conjunction with a move. Right? That they'll think, I'm not sure about this gospel and it's kind of hard to sort of stop going to church, so why don't we move? And then we have a big reset and continue on a different path within a new neighborhood, around new people. And our board will just think, hey, we moved, and hopefully they'll forget about us and not worry about us. And so we want to dissect that, why that is, and it leads to a great discussion about community, about building culture, about how do we find those individuals earlier on in the process rather than going to their home and begging them to come to the word barbecue because they've been inactive for a year, how do we find them earlier on so that we can establish connection and relationship and find, help them see that they have a home here and believe it or not, that'll actually stimulate faith and develop faith in our gospel tenants and whatnot. So it's a phenomenal discussion. We both get on soap boxes at various times, especially me, and this isn't like an interview as much as a discussion. We want to model a discussion about this topic and we hope that you take this discussion to what I frame as the revelation machine to your word council or to your word altogether and talk about this. How can we anticipate those who are stepping away and create a culture in our word where they feel like they can stick around a little bit longer? So here's my discussion with Ryan Gottfredson.

Yesterday's dini whose professional physics at amazon is taking versity. One of the primary of usage focus is new leaders. Welcome to see you thank you. Yeah thanks for doing this. So i know that you have done a lot of work on neutrinos. You have a few papers. That came out recently. And i want to talk to a twenty eighteen paper dalogue and my own neutrino signatures of primordial black holes. invite you say. These studied primordial black holes ph is as sources of massive neutrinos by hawking radiation under the hypothesis that black holes emit nuclear no bass item states be described quantitatively called the pbs evolution and lifetime is affected by the mass and flew munich dialect my own nature of neutrinos before we get the details celia I wanted to get some definitions of folks would know what black court saw a few episodes of black holes Here we're talking about. The pride won't imprac codes owes The these black holes are fall close to the big bang And then as caulking radiation Sort of The black hole evaporating So to speak and that That lady Imitating these particles called neutrinos. Right is that. Do i understand that correctly. Yes so so pry bhutia blackhaws before we get the neutrinos what is sort of the mechanism of formation their ho- exactly what they have formed sure We believe that Primordial hose could form in the early universe from density fluctuations so We know that any object could can possibly become a black hole if you compress it into a very very small volume so this same process could happen in the universe with Density fluctuations that could be a regional space where there is an over density compared to the surrounding and each of over the east coast past Then then it could get to the point of becoming a black hole This this The details of this process are beyond my expertise But this is fairly reasonable thing to expect and The diesel really small rate in the scheme of things. Yes so when i started to Learn about time or their black holes. I was amazed by how different in mass can be. They can be may be the massive wouldn't but they can also be The mass of Being or they can be Even even smaller so they can really be very very tiny. Yes oh so. That's really really small so this is sort of quantum fluctuations only universe Kind of getting Getting concentrated in vide- small areas But we believe those. Those primordial black holes emit nucleus. we Have to go back to stephen hawking for that stephen hawking wrote this seminal paper Which is about what we nowadays. Nowadays call hawking radiation so he demonstrated that any black hole regardless of what it is could be primordial black hole or a stellar. Nicole doesn't matter any black hole isn't really black because it meets radiations so radiation particles And the the process that we call evaporation so Because a black holes fundamentally gravity objects they would meet any particle that couples to raggedy including trees so It's the moment you have a black hole you do. Have hawking radiation and neutrinos are just that are expected. Part of hawking radiation. You're so caulking radiation so that that happens to every black hole even the even the supermassive ones right so i it said gentle phenomenon And so going to neutrinos now Don't typically thing neutrino site Caltrans and electrons are really well known. neutrinos are particles. Dad don't interact with The matter Espionage don't interact much with matters. We don't really see them. They don't really see them. And and so it's difficult to measure that's right and so so this could you give a. What does the history of neutrino vendor we. I understand such things existed. Let's see We go back to the twentieth century and the story goes That the father of neutrino sees Warfare he. He made the hypotheses of a new particle existing as a way to explain Some strange behavior of neutrinos produced by by nuclear decay so It's it's a long story but Let me just say that For a long time. Neutrinos who just the hypotheses and then around the mead of this twentieth century They would actually officer so we started to Know that this particles existed and But that was pretty much heat. So we didn't know much about the properties And one of these properties the mass which we still don't know i'm easy after all these decades but we still don't know if neutrinos have something like a magnetic went for example And something that we didn't learn until much later on is the fact. That neutrinos oscillate. That's that that sounds. That's something that we that were somehow established Turn of the sanctuary around the around the year. Two thousand really after after decades of of testing with the solar neutrino selling trainers. So there are still there are still a number of no on your trainers. One of them is the mass one and the other one is the The nature of the neutrinos being the iraq particles or miranda particles we She's kind of a fundamental cost. So there are that. That's that's that's related to the fundamental nature of the neutrino as particle break. So so they do. They have a mass but masses small. Do they have a chunk. Neutrinos don't have charge so they are electrically neutral and that's Comedy the biggest reason for for them to be a so allusive as you were mentioning earlier on especially in the in early. Nineteen hundreds all the particle detectors so basically a electro-magnetic detectors they were looking for charge or Magnetic behavioral some sort. So neutrinos don't have that and so they They only have the weak interaction At that that we know wolf and gravity of course and so that's why they They escape detection so so easily because their interaction is very weak. Yeah so so. That's sort of the beauty of neutrinos right so because they don't interact V can go back digits of years. Simple hats Perhaps become pickup one on earth and it would have travelled that distance through all sorts of things but would not have affected wider rate right. Yes and so so the other phenomenon of neutrino is that you mentioned that they also late so are they're failures of tinos they go back and forth. Yes it's It's actually a fairly Easy to this cried kwan to sonam on We know that In quantum mechanics there is this Particles described by these function which is called the wave function. And so the neutrinos could be on. Neutrino could be born as a say an extra and then it's quanta way function would evolve over time in a way that after sometime. The wave function is no longer a purely electron neutrino way function. But the has a little bit or even law actually of a different flavor. It could be a new one or tau. So what we observe in the actors. Is this change of flavor and perhaps the most striking demonstration of this phenomenon is solemn. Neutrinos because we know that the sun produces an extra treatments and It doesn't produce a new on and talion trainers so But here on earth we do Have evidence that the solar neutrino flags that we receive has some You wanna talion. Trina in it and that can only be explained by sedation and Actually after this other neutrino data showed this phenomenon. This was also confirmed by a saint men made experiments so it's a fairly established phenomenon it and so that the flavors are Electron new on tall. Yes that's right and so. Did you understand the vendor made in the sun for example there they are made as electron Neutrinos and by the time they reached the earth day the Immunes dot. Yes yes Impart young. that's that's what happens so ease. It always the case that they get a manufactured so to speak as as electoral neutrinos always. It depends on where they are born. There are places where neutrino sutter born in or flavors. A so it's it's it really varies with With the type of environment We are talking about okay. Okay and so in the people you say ph is this primordial black holes. We talked about radiates right. Handed and left handed dutra knows in equal amounts so anybody right-handed unless the cleaners. Okay let me see so Yes you say. Indicates of dirac neutrinos. pba Left neutrinos in equal amounts possibly increasing deceptive number noon pheno species nest. Yes is that explainable. Yes so right handed than left handed. Neutrinos that may take why to explain what that exactly means me. Just say that It's related to the neutrino mass. So if you're truly knows didn't have a mass which we know they do but if they didn't have a mouse They would only exist as left handed particles which means that basically their spin is Is anti aligned with the momentum and but if they have mass and the iraq particles There could be another type of neutrino which is right handed. Which where the This being ease aligned with a mentor other than anti line and so If you are iraq these these two different species could exist and so instead of having one species of neutrino emitted left-handed one Indicators of a massless trina if we have not suv nutrients than you would have to species and so. The black hole radiate war energy compared to The case when neutrinos don't amass so when we started working on this paper i was interested in this phenomenon that A lot of the literature having to do with a developer. Evaporation of primordial black couls. Consider the neutrinos as massless about. Now we know that they are massive. And so i thought well Sixty speaking at primordial black hole could radiate more energy than previously thought. So i found that aspect interesting and then sees you mention the possibility to increase the effective number of species. That's related to what it was talking about. So then you the black hole would ra- gate more neutrino States or more neutrino Species to spe pseudo speak and then Would increase the number of neutrinos per cubic centimeter Data we observe today so I'm kind of glossing over a lot of these days. But basically cosmology gives us a measurement of this and effective which is called the effective number two species. And if you have this right. Handed neutrinos coming from the primordial black holes. This number could be higher than than expected. And so that would be may be a i way to tell that maybe there are more black holes in the universe yet. So so the hawking radiation essentially creation coming out of black holes Expected defined Expected that over a long period of time. Black holes radiate away lap. Later ray out the mass or information that didn't do it And so this. Radiation is hockey. Radio station is it is a new park. Or is it. Fundamentally composed of neutrinos hawking radiation is made of every particle that no of so A black hole. A camera gate Pretty much everything. Photons neutrinos throngs You loans It said cetera but There is the catch here. The fact that a black hole has a temperature which is another Big achievement of stephen hawking to end and others To that the black hole is thermo dynamical object and so Basically the bigger the black hole the lower the temperature so if the temperature is really low The black hole wouldn't be able to immed- Very massive particles because they are thermal energy would be sufficient for that so because masses energy Mc squared right so because massey's energy If a black hole has too low of a temperature It wouldn't have its quantum energy It's it's Wouldn't be enough to produce the mass off a particular particle for example a proton may be too heavy to be produced by a really low tanto black home so so the beaker. The black called the lower the temperature. Yes ed so. So then can expect the bigger black holes to have more of a neutrino content in radiation. Yes because The bigger black holes would as i said be able to radiate the heavy particles and so they would only be able to radiate away the low mass particles and so there could be black holes that only emit photons gravitons and Neutrinos do a of sort of the distribution of this primordial black holes Isn't you know sort of everywhere. What is what do we know about you. Know some of the distribution of bbc's you mean spatial distribution like where they are now. I'm wondering just like the easy would do sort of look at the early universe will find them everywhere Probably at the beginning they would be a more or less uniformly distributed Bug in the universe. Today they would probably be Behaving like the dark matter. Does they would Be part of galactic halos In other words they would be they would class gravitationally on large structures like a like a galaxy placido galaxy so these call still around They would they would behave like like the dark matter down. So they would be in in halo. Galaxies would have by. Now have april would would they not have disappear because it far it depends on the mass That they have when they are born so their if their mass is less than a certain value that trying to remember Basically yes they would have to By now they would have completely evaporate did their masters larger than they will take longer to evaporate and they could still be around So they roughly speaking the dividing line between a black hole. Steve being around today or not. I think it's something like ten to fifteen grams fiery recall correctly into fifteen clams though So this paper. Eusebio obtained the diffuse flux of right hill. Neutrinos from his idea and so so. So so the nikkei actually act to build these neutrinos. They'd be flying here do pbs specifically In principle that's a possibility we Considered that for certain Masses of these black holes and certain density of this black holes the flux of neutrinos that they generate over time could be fairly large and so we could Detect these neutrinos If we had a very Power who attacked so Now life is never ideally in the sense that a real Ut detector have substantive issues like ground And so on. So at the end of the people we conclude that impact is giving given the limitations that current nutrient doctors have It may not really be possible to detect neutrinos trump mortgage black holes but people. That's a possibility and that alone is interesting. Yeah because they suggestion that this primordial black holes could be as as you mentioned could be part of the dark matter that yes to seeking. Is that still About us that has been. There has been a debate on these Kind of going back and forth in the scientific community The latest i heard is that Black whose could be part of the dark matter. Maybe even a large part but probably not they entire dark matter so a one hundred percent primordial Battery is a bit difficult to justify the day. experimental bowels that we already have constrained so various types but there could be scenarios where maybe a fraction of the dark matter. He's made of primordial black holes. I wanted to go into a ended up paper in twenty twenty supernova neutrinos directional sensitivity and prospects for dissertation here the export potential of current and future liquid cinta league neutrino detectors. I decade old town. Mass a localize a super a supernova neutrino signal into sky in douglas was feeding the core collapse nearby star tens to hundreds of english Coated and don't be constructed policy in the detector can be used to estimate a direction to the star so so this is now neutrinos from supernova and You so so we. We have Idea here that before this opened on what happens. If please open over a time period it is creating neutrinos that could pick up and and potentially get ready to see the super bowl. Yes that's what excites me The fact that Think about bitter jews. Beetlejuice is the most famous nearby star. That could go supernova anytime and we don't know when that's going to happen and If it wasn't for these neutrinos that our paper is about we will know until the style literally Collapses and and then soon after becomes superman but in this paper we we Show that before the star collapses which is the beginning of the supernova process We can detect these. These neutrinos That are used at that at that stage and so increase the pool we could know that You know tomorrow. These days beetlejuice exploding and that that would be quite exciting. Yeah it's beetlejuice is is red joy and reasonably close to was really big star. I can remember Cecilia there was some suggestion that It could go supernova within something one hundred fifty thousand years which is obliquely in cosmic time so it is getting ready to go to Supernova right yes. I am not you formed about exactly the number of years give or take but it's it's ready it's ready. It could be any time and any time any time for an astronomer muse anytime the next thousand soviet so we should. We should hold their breath. But it's ready could be tomorrow. It could be in a hundred years could supernova. I know that this is not part of the paper but could the beetlejuice supernova avenue adverse effect on north really know a supernova is very very spectacular event. it's it's a star that collapses so it implodes i and that explodes and then when he explodes It's very bright. In the case of bitter jews we could. We could see by naked-eye shore but in terms of A fact of each radiation and neutrinos in light on on us and on our daily activities. It wouldn't it. Wouldn't affect them in any way so it's a save Show to just enjoy without any worry. Great answer so you talking about supernova neutrinos so so can be actually detect neutrinos from supernova. What different from what we talked about in the previous people Different from pbs I'm not sure. Can you repeat yes. So the new teen emanating from a supernova different from the Neutrinos of expectancy from a primordial black hole. Yes the the different In many ways disney trails have higher energies. So it's much much easier to attack them and indicates will beat the jews. We would detect thousands or even more of dan millions. Probably of them Indiana so different in the way they are born because in our primordial black hole ordinary black hole The processes volcanoes the asian. Which which is a gravity phenomenon in a supernova. You're born out of the very hot and dense environment That the that that the star as after it has collapsed so star collapsing on its own way to become very dense and so In this very dense in hot environment nuclear processes take place that produce these nutrients. So i guess the main difference is that indicates supernova it's most nuclear phenomenon and in the call is really fundamentally a gravitational sonam. Okay you discover technique in this paper and you saved sin principle possible unique the identify the progenitor star so So the existing technology and ideas discussed in the paper viki see teacup a neutrino decode. Identify valid came from or what direction thing from embed you can go back and look at the in that direction if he find to supernova then you could say that the supernova that created in-principle Yes let me. Just say that There are situations and this is not one of them but there are situations where if you have one neutrino you can point to the pointing the sky. What came from in these case. It's a little more complicated. Because what really gives us. The information is the statistical distribution of these nutrients so we are talking about may be the tax in hundred a hundred Gable take from say be for example and What did detector really observe is not the neutrino is kind of a vector which is related to the products of these neutrinos so this neutrino sues interacts with the interact with the detector. And then out of this interaction you have a positive on the new thrown and those can be observed and you can you can create a factory using these two and then and then these rector will have a certain orientation but each each neutrino coming will give you a differently oriented vector but statistically if you look at the distribution of these factors you you can tell you can you can do for with a certain of course The direction of the neutrinos because these vectors are not uniformly distributed they are they have a non uniform distribution of the direction. And so using this information we can we can define a regional the sky where The new three could come from so we can. We cannot now down to a point but we can now down to maybe a cone of a few tens of degrees Width and then we look in that cone and see what stars that com and maybe be juicy one of them. Yeah so As you say you if you see a few Neutrinos Statistics bution of those will give us some some probability That it is in in some region of the sky. And then you say the paper You can then that if it is happening please open nola. You learnt other observational. Modalities multi messagero rations Invisible in radio and other other types of observations Do actually pick up more data so this is almost like a early alert system If it is in place right yes i would call it a very early I learned to because it's we're talking about maybe our worse or insert very fortunate cases. We are even talking about maybe day Before the assad goes supernova and. so that's enough time to plan for for it so a something that fascinated me When i heard about this from a from a an experimentalist is that there is a human factor which was not aware of but The factories so if you have come up with thirty minutes to plan for watching supernova this may not be enough because it just takes stein to make phone calls and get a hold of people and and decide what to do. Come to a consensus in that. I saw in addition to technical things. Like okay have to maybe turn your telescope Direction which takes time. But i i was really fascinated by the human factor. Those things that if you had style we'd be you can kind of gathered. Relevant people decide something but if you have thirty minutes or or or minutes maybe not so. Yeah yeah i wondered. If such a earlier system is in place Perhaps could be something programmatic. Crises is picking up And you have some you know. Maybe some ai techniques or something like that that identifies the region and it goes. Programmatic returned the telescopes look. Yes yes exactly so. There could be a protocol in place For that so e if a telescope was suitable for observing a nearby supernova which which is not always the case than than now that we showed that it's possible to know beforehand if a star is going to go supernova then there could be some sort of protocol in place already so that when the alert comes which is we can just activated the protocol and oriented telescope. maybe automatically will in some sort of Organized way yeah as you say if you remove humans from the process it becomes not better there is actually already working this direction It's called this new two point. Oh a network which has to do with Exactly these using neutrinos as alert for the astronomy community and That has to do with exactly a creating alerts and also creating protocols for how to react to an alert rate. I want to end the people that just came out. it concordant scenario for the observation of neutrino from the tidal disruption. Even eight hundred twenty nine hundred ninety s t You say be induced at phenomenology concordance canadia with the logistic jet of for the title disruption event Between ninety s jesmyn proposes a source of the astrophysical neutrino event. Ice cube So the title disruption even this is star getting cooler into a black hole getting Getting sucked in rate is that the is that even up to the match yes This is something that we We had about be in in popular science stalks What what happens if you get too close to black hole and It's kind of scary. So the answer is you would be ripped apart because your feet will be pulled in with a strong force than your head and these. This is what happens to two statehouse. Use the star gas to close than by guests Ripped the park. Which is what the tied is option means and so instead of a star Rotating around a black hole we just have a stellar stellar That dr intially. I created by the black hole and so This is something that The happy neighbor cops serve did so so we have. This does happen this particularly Eighty twenty nine hundred ninety s and Bequeath actually see a new cleaners from that particular even so tightness. Deduction events are fairly well established phenomenon in astronomy. We have many of them served They they are Fairly a common plays events But what's special about this particular one. Eighty two thousand nineteen years. G is that We could let's say It could have Produced on neutrino that was detected a ice cube so eighty twenty nine hundred ninety s. She is the first either direction event. For which is coincident. Neutrinos detected a dice. Cube in queens. This coincidence is likely to be accidental. So on approachability estimate tells us that these coins. This is pretty causal not accident so eighty twenty nine hundred ninety. The g could be the parent of this neutrino. And that's that's that's a i. That's very interesting. Yes i skew. is a is a big ice cube in the in. The south is I'm not sure it's exactly cuba. But it's it's the biggest block of is which has been Eastern With values Small detectors So it's it's an array of swarner detectors but yeah it's basically a big block of ice which has been transformed into a detective and so so the idea that this high energy neutrinos from what they were System montemar even that happened Out there this high energy neutrinos passing through that ice q. believe some telltale signs All of that happening and yuxi picked up Then began back Just like you were talking about the previous creeper begin. Please back to a region so this is one of those cases where you can tell from a single neutrino of course the with with a narrower where you can tell the point in the sky where three neutrino kate from. It's doable with one single neutrino because this high energy neutrinos when they enter the is They produce ca a shower so they kind of illuminate. They you me nate. The is but the do it in a way which is very much Beat so and then and then the direction of the the direction of bigotry knows. We have a pretty good accuracy often. How often could be a pickup something like that. Do we have an estimate of how often that would happen. Meaning ice cube detects something like this. Every year ice cube the tax Of the order of ten high-energy neutrinos froth outside our galaxy. Tadesse the number for the entire crop of neutrinos that ice cube has It went we talk about tidal disruption events in the specific these are fairly rare phenomena and so they estimated that maybe a few times so percent of the entire neutrino flux the thais cubeys of serving could be from tidal disruption events. Not much more than that. So we are talking about less than half of the total flats being to tell this option events okay and so the tug disruption burned as as you mentioned It starts getting clipped applaud and pulled back into a into a a black hole but this ten percent. Do they have to be these braces as they call it. The things that have a jet that is sort of lying towards us. Is that it necessarily condition for these types of high energy neutrinos. It's it's a plausible scenario Let me just say that. There is an important difference between blazers in tidal disruption events. In the fact that the ablaze is something that has a jet. She's always on so the jets kinda kerman feature of of these particular galaxy but the title is adoption. Event is transient events. Saw dotcoms creates the accretion. This accretion of the star of the black hole produces flair is flair can last year or two but then it would just fade away so There could be jet and in fact in our paper we present where there is a jet so they partisans the user chat But if there is a jet in tiger disruption event. That's a transient suggested. That's born when This starts to create the stellar debris. And then it's on for months or years and then and then shuts off and it has two point in our direction as you as you mentioned because otherwise we would. We would see the trains your so this high energy neutrinos sillier how. How many orders of magnitude are we talking about coming to the one set you pick up. Let's say from the sun I'm not sure about the question. Can you maybe rephrase yet. So when you say this high energy neutrinos that is coming from let's say a tidal disruption events or something like that How much comedy orders of magnitude more energy Outdoors come to you. Know the ones that might be created the sun a lot menu of this magnitude so It is a big difference. So the sun produces new three meals. over a wide range of energies Higher energy neutrinos from the sun reach energies of the order of ten am pt and mega awards and for the ice cream. Neutrinos we are talking about one hundred of the older one hundred t. v. or even thousand teams. Which would be p so. Let's say maybe eighty tortoise magnitude finding the mass rife or okay and so this e. v. measure it is actually measuring the mass of the neutrino of newfield. Now these these neutrinos are have such a Such high energy that basically It's impossible to know their mass Because because as i said massey's energy so they talk energy of neutrino Detected is to be so high that that percentage view to its mass east so tiny that this practice mutual so i was wondering if we know the energy couldn't be sort of back computer to save the mass is or it doesn't follow The reasoning is a bit different and The way to sink about this is perhaps they let me see the formula for energy particle Which used the rest energy Applause the kinetic energy and So connecticut is so high that he thought the overwhelms direct energy. So it's it's and of course every time you measure the energy when three no. There is a narrow associated with the measurement so You we can't really we can't really tell what What led the boss of the detroit news but both roughtly this. This appears to be sort of an early warning system for many many things right topped the supernova the in the title disruption events producing heightened plano's So this could be sort of inundated with a monkey message. Observations protocols as you mentioned that gives us a higher success. Wait suspect. I would think certainly nominated be one right That's the power of multi messenger astronomy the integration of different signals coming from Photos tree knows navigation waves Causing me craze and Danger plays very powerful emmanuel cases and maybe supernova case is the most striking Xenos come first. But that's not always the case So in the indicates of tidal disruption events Did you know that was observed. Came about five months later than the initial dhammika looser version of the tidal disruption events so It's if it can go both ways. neutrinos can be early alert or they only alert could be for example a radio salvation or or an x-ray use ovation and then and then the neutrino attacked or could Focus a surge in that direction as see what they find which which has actually been done ice cube sometimes. Does these these archival. Search this on the basis of others from From for example x ray or gamma ray surveys interested. Exciting eighty that said a lot to be owned It seems It seems like these till don't know all the production mechanisms for neutrinos but if we have robust with to pick them up on than we can place them back and and talk asking questions What might be there definitely So yes so. People celia the next five years Wanted the aid is that you believe Be will make a significant crocus in this Innovative neutrinos then two different areas. That a very promising One is Broadly speaking Manmade nutrients so there is. There is a big push especially hitting the united states to build Create very powerful beams of trainings and then these beams are manmade. So we know that very well. We know that energy we know the composition and we can use them to learn about The properties of treatments and then That other men bead neutrino experiments where Scientists look for the between months so that's also very promising In something i really. I really excited about that. That may be a furious novel with noble the neutrino mass us from these very high position laboratory experience. Then there is the whole Topic of neutrinos as part of the mouth of mike messenger astronomy and in that area. I think what was was to look forward. To among other scenes is the interplay gravitational waves shock waves. You still Somehow a science of its own into a large extent but there are so many possible connections. We've neutrinos tidal disruption adoption events should produce reputation ways so baranov shoot us gradation ways So so there is. There is a a lot of potential there which is still unexplored in and that's where i see myself Working on in the next few years you adjust very quickly The do gravitational waves travel bid closest and new ashtrays and so if If they both are produced in In uneven they're expected to arrive on earth close to simultaneously. It depends on the timing of the production if the answer is yes the waves ending a knows are born at the same time which may not be exactly true because the physics that governs tation waves is different from the one that that governs neutrinos. So but the difference in timing would be the difference Accumulated that birth But but the two were were generated genetically the same time. They should arrive the same time. Just thinking this a systematic difference in the production time than guan lorries given early warning for the other. But that doesn't seem to do a case right. There could be cases where significant lag in the production of rotation way with respect to the production of the tree nose and one example is. We haven't touched on this before but let me just nation mergers so if we have if we have a merger for example we have maybe a merger of a neutron stars or black hole neutral star before the merger happens so when the two objects that kind of still approaching each other we should start observe serving ways and this is what this is what has been seen so Delight experiment observes these these nominal But if we have a merger After the merger has occurred and the two objects have become one than a. Dan could be the formation of of over an accretion disk and he secretion Trainers which we can which we can back so the neutrino We come After they initially asian waves and so relation as would be the alert for the neutrino. That does excellent. your this has been great as celia. thanks so much complaining pleasure. Okay thank you bye. This is a scientific sense.
