U.S. Sues to Block Texas Abortion Ban, Calls It 'Unconstitutional'
"Quote open defiance of the constitution. And that's how. The justice department described the texas abortion ban in a brand new lawsuit argues that the legislation is unconstitutional and should be struck down. This is the first major move against this law from the biden administration. Attorney general merrick garland said the law which bans abortions after six weeks. Which is before. Many women would know that they are pregnant with no exceptions for rape or incest violates supreme court precedent by denying women their constitutional rights and he said the provisions that effectively deputises private citizens to be bounty hunters was a quote unprecedented scheme and quote to evade responsibility. This kind of scheme nullify. The constitution of the united states is one that all americans whatever their politics or party should fear if it prevails it may become a model for action in other areas by other states. That's the point. One should be fearful of this regardless of where you stand on abortion. The supreme court has not yet ruled on the constitutionality of the texas love. The conservative majority on the supreme court allowed it to go into effect. Anyway justice steven brier told. Npr today that he thought the majority was very very wrong to do that. That's easy to see why because most abortion providers in texas have now already closed their doors out of fear of being sued by vigilantes or worse

A Discussion on Power With Prof. Dacher Keltner, PhD
"Us today to keller. It's great to be with him here. Speaking of psychology we often start by defining terms. And i asked this question in the introduction. What is power. how do you define it. And is your definition different from machiavelli's. Yeah you know this turns out to be one of the hardest things to do in the science of power bertrand russell. The great philosopher wrote that power is the basic medium of social life. And as i've studied power of my colleagues for twenty five years i tend to agree. It's it's just everywhere. And that makes it hard to define. And we really align and their various definitions of we really aligned with somebody named steven lukes who has a wonderful treatment of power. Assess the gist. That power is your capacity to alter the states of other people or to influence others right so power is different from status. Which cameron anderson has studied. Which is the respect you get from your peers and your colleagues in the people around you. Power is different than wealth and class and in fact in our work those two contracts only correllated about point one five point two power is different from dominance which is strategies to coerce people to manipulate. Power is your capacity to influence and alter the states of mind of people around you too. Why do some people seek power. What are the psychosocial hallmarks of people who actively want power. Well this is an old question. People like david winter really were interested in it. It's it you know. There are individual differences in how much we want power. So people want the spotlight. They wanna lead. They have certain characteristics They like power they enjoy it there a little bit more extroverted why we want that. Is i think one of the really subtle lessons of this research. Which is that. There are a lot of good things that come with power people feel better. They are happier. They have more freedom. They have more connections with others. They enjoy more resources. So there are lot of good reasons for wanting power and and we shouldn't condemn people for that aspiration. Why

Why don't i just get a job. Just like pay bills and stuff and then just use that money to reinvest into. You know the work that i'm doing. And then there. I just kept being diligent started going to marketplaces and sean my stuff doing street art fairs and stuff and and they just expanded from there got a couple of viral projects than the wrestles. History has business kind of changed over the past year or so given the state of the world.

"And i just wanna make it and i'll probably will be able to pull it off a month and then hopefully you guys will enjoy it. What did you think of. Let them all talk. Same it is just a complete surprise. I think even though what you said describes it pretty accurately it stars meryl streep dianne wiest candice bergen. It is found on a cruise ship. And it's a lot of talking and it is about women of a certain age a facing their life and their each and each other's and that's not like a hundred percent out of character for soda bringing the sense of people talking in unusual settings and and people who aren't normally focused on in cinema or considered heroes though that's the usually with a criminal background or something and his movies but in this case it's just all ladies but it is it definitely. Has that feel that. I'd like to try it. Which is also steven. Soderbergh of white. I had this idea and wouldn't it be fun. If i could get everyone together and i could convince a cruise ship and a very fancy cruise ship at that to let me film and we'll just see what happens and more often than not when steven soderbergh like sees what happens. It does work and it's exciting. I think this really works. I think it's quieter than you would expect from the steven soderbergh film. I think that because a large part of it is improvised. There is not that neatness of dialogue. Which is actually interesting and again for someone who likes to do things. I think it's cool to see soderbergh kind of figure out what to do with the emotions and what these actresses like throw into the mix but you you watched it and slapped me and we're dislike okay so it's just a deborah is in short story it does it feels contained. It feels like we did this and we thought through some feelings and now we move on which you don't filmmakers of. His caliber aren't doing that in anymore in any capacity. That's exactly right.

"Okay amanda speaking of pegs. We had been planning to do this. Steven soderbergh episode. I interviewed steven soderbergh and then thirty minutes after we got off of our zoom. Call a piece of news. Came across the transom. And that that is that steven soderbergh is going to be one of the producers of next year's academy awards ceremony. Would you think about that news. I love it my number one guy and my number one awards. Show thank you steven soderbergh. We needed this. Lord knows the oscars needed it. Just a plus for me the happiest like the most exclamation points that i've sent you really or used in any context in twenty twenty. I think we'd been softly dreading the oscars next year because of amount of films that were rolling out and what an award show looks like during the pandemic and all these other things. This news comes along the producer. Jesse collins the oscar nominated producer. Stacy cher who has worked with steve berg in the past and of course the man himself who is well known to be one of the most innovative mischievous thoughtful creative figures in hollywood for the last thirty years and so what better way to explore and exploit some of that creativity than by revive afyon. Something reinventing something. Hopefully that desperately needs some reinvention. I think this is just plainly. Great news at least for this podcast. I think it's great news for the oscars. I'm thrilled that steven soderbergh was willing to do it. I mean i think traditionally the oscars certainly hosting the oscars have been understood to be a thankless task. And we were driving in large part. Because i think we couldn't conceptualize what it would be. There is like the physical challenges of. Can you have all those people in a room. In april of twenty twenty no idea what will it look like how. Well what films will qualify. What phones we rewarded. Who will have seen them. Were people even care. You know it's been such a strange year for the movie industry and just having steven soderbergh. Reinvented is i couldn't even think of something. That is such a good idea. But i'm like oh great. Now i wanna know what it's going to be. He's can completely just a one off. If it's just like the very weird twenty twenty one oscars as conceived by steven soderbergh. That will be delightful and a lot of ways that is just all you can hope for and then perhaps we move on with like.

"I just got fired from madman where I was Weiner's assistance. As people on I've been to they all get fired and I was and I was trying to find out what my next was. In the studio system as an assistant, it's it's very easy to lose track of like the creative joy than brought you into this industry, the goals and so. And like you know I had a vision for like a time, this was. At the time leading man. At the time that I was reading the a leading man screenplay. There are a lot of offensive racist things going on in in millions like Jeremy Lin was start starting to take off then like people were making fun of him. Talking about his penis is and like all these really degrading things and A. Two broke girls on the air. That really degrading Asian character thought NBC show. was on all this terrible anti-asian stereotypes where we're starting to surface, and I was like. Asian men need help and I need to make a show about I need to make a movie about what's happening to us in how degraded and I had a lot of Asian American actors at the time that I wanted to tell their story, because as hard as it was for me to get ahead in the industry, like I couldn't imagine what it would be like to be an actor, and so I, I wrote a screenplay about an Asian American actor, trying to out stereotypes. And, trying to get that three dimensional romantic, leading role and I wrote it back in two thousand. and. We went into production in two thousand thirteen, and then it came out. In two thousand thirteen in two, thousand, fourteen and twenty, fifteen played a lot of the major Asian film festivals, opening and closing night centerpieces, and it was. It was really great to get that conversation out there. To to let people know that this is a problem we needed to do something and you know a couple years later it's. I'm not taking credit for it, but I'm taking credit for being part of the conversation to get better Asian representation out there and like now we have crazy, which Asians and that is has the potential to change the landscape. I hope we keep going with that. Yeah I become a regular watcher of AQUAFINA nor from Queens. How is that, oh? It's it's really. At first it's a little jarring because of the way the humor happens. But you know I've had long on here and this is you know after he'd already shot this and and so. Even just seeing the the acting chopped beatty. Who was finishing up mister robot and being the white rose. WHO has this? You know gender fluid Shit, you know. Very intense. Character. Being the straight single dad widower, dad of of Aquafina and so believable. And the granite, and and it's really funny. I also binge watched Kim's convenience, right? Another great Canadian Sitcom, but again these these are two sitcoms that are just dealing with. Not Typical, but but just Asian American or Asian, Canadian life, and bringing in things Kim's convenience, they go to the Korean. Church Presbyterian Church and all the drama. They're like oh my gosh. Some of this holdings a little bit. But then Aquafina definitely you could see. She's written in. Her Sitcom is so funny. And you know she's got the world's big vibrator ever seen I. It's like the size of a baseball bat. Hilarious it's Hilarious, and and and yet you know some of the different themes, and then bowing Yang is her cousin in this right, so it's neat to see him other than a few sketches on Saturday night live. Right yeah, so yeah Kudos to you being part of that wave and I want to say. I want to say Damn. You Steven because I was tracking the character a G. Q. that that was so wonderfully acted by jockeying. Great all my God love him stuff, but. Quickly after after a leading man made, he got to play, he was the lead in a Singapore television series, so he finally got. After are moving. A leading man made me so happy well, he deserves it. He deserves it. You know, but I must say Damn you because as the story writer. About the last twenty percent of the of the movie, all of a sudden, you're changing my opinion about his character. Yes. Right because! I show. I brought my daughter back in after we did the falling age. I've run into the the the thing where they these prescreened the episode of the Poo Poo, platter thing right, and then, and then the director panel thing and how she Q. Confronts Him, because that's the voice of my daughter A. She's totally there right, and so like. Yes, yes, he's standing up. He's speaking out. He's putting them in their place. And by the end of the movie is like. You know he he's. He's complicated like he is, he's right. He did a really shitty hang. He didn't because I didn't understand why he was circling those women's pictures until and then you know that whole woman that the more heavy set woman that they ran into you in the restaurant that that was one of his prior and I'm like. This dude is very scheming, he he. And, so it doesn't really hit the fan. It doesn't really come clear till near the end, but I proceeded the writing of that I thought that was so clever. Because you strung me along especially as someone who knows a lot of an had guests on who are part of that whole. Trying to get beyond stereotyped roles. and. He's such a champion, right? And such he such a third when it comes to that. So many people so many actors make compromises and immoral compromises and their quest for their careers and it's. Weighing it's about wing morals. It's about weighing the goods versus the pad, the fits and G Cues Calculus. He thinks that he can do more good in being that leading role, but he'll do anything he can to get there and it isn't until he he. He hooks up with the other woman at the end.

Are you ready to pretend you did your homework I don't know. Are you ready to not learn about the greatest? Maybe man who ever lived or didn't. I have an idea. So who is Stephen. Exactly. Stephen Rhetoric Seagal, or on April, tenth nineteen, fifty two is as Wikipedia puts it an American actor, producer, screenwriter, martial artist and musician. American Serbian and Russian. We're GONNA learn today. Can we can we just pace that into the background? ECHO. The title of this podcast has never been more apropos. But as we're GONNA learn today, he is oh, so much more and also much less than all of those things. On October third nineteen ninety ago, explained to Arsenio Hall on national, television that quote A. Lot of my youth was spent in Brooklyn, which is strange. Because Seagal was born in Lansing. Michigan okay I I get making some. Creative adjustments to your biography to add a flare up. You had Detroit right there. All the way across the country, the son of Medical Technician Patricia Seagal and High School Mathematics Teacher Samuel. Seagal. Steven has at various times, claim to be of Japanese Italian and Russian descent. You also claims to speak four languages over. Because it claiming. To do that in English. Over, his mother confirmed with people magazine. His heritage is exclusively Jewish and Irish, and there is no evidence to suggest he speaks any language other than. He said he said that he has spent a lot of his youth in Brooklyn. And Brooklyn was the name of his high school sweetheart, so it's technically true. Sneaking suspicion, his high school sweetheart was from Canada. Niagara Falls different parts of New York. At the age of five cigars, parents moved him to California, which is unfortunately also not Brooklyn as team. He became interested in martial. Arts Gordon to his mother from that same people magazine article quote. He worked with this nice old Japanese man at Doj Joe in Garden Grove. He encouraged Steven to go to. Japan and quote know yeah, when the proprietor of a business that your kid keeps going back to ask them to. Please go somewhere five thousand. is taking a personal interest in him, yes. and Go to Japan, he did however win is also in question, Seagal claims to have studied with more hey. Habushi. Mora Neyla. Sheba the founder I like. Better. However records show. He attended college in California Until Nineteen, seventy, one and Julia Shiba died in nineteen, sixty nine, so seem strange. Some contemporaries remember an American kid who played guitar hanging around the studio, but they are unwilling to say when, or even that they're sure it was Seagal Gary Dobson a fifth degree black belt who studied with the master from nineteen, sixty, one to nineteen, sixty nine has been quoted as saying that story is bull back then I never heard of Steven Seagal. Okay win alleged if degree black belts in the ancient art of risk control your story. Akito is legitimate martial aren't is. The only one that focuses on the losing end of the bed. We'll get there Tom. Let's this kicked with style with. By nineteen, seventy, four SEAGAL was back in California where he met and married. Miyako Fuji, Tani, a second degree, black belt, and a daughter of an. Bass Guitar Master who had come to Los Angeles to teach. When MIATA returned to a Asaka, Seagal went with her following year, they married and had a son who they named Kentaro and daughter, who they named a Jakko also goes off and claim to be the first non Asian to open DOJ in Japan. Actuality school which he taught. Along to Miatas family. Doing her brother's still teach at the school and their mother is the Chairwoman Steven Seagal is no longer affiliated, but he still gets royalties from his first marriage is DOJ.

End a magic dog awhile, Y. Okay, but that's actually the plot of a script that he wrote in his head called. Rally. Part of that that I'm having the hardest time with his deciding which part of that story is least believable and I'm not leaning magic. Yes illegal Stephen. Allies essays came to light. Yes, it is in an interview with Peter Magazine. He told the following story from this time period quote. I was in Osaka. Japan was having some difficulties with group of sort of lawless individuals. At my own. Joe, Jojo or school there, there was a big conflict. You say joke. No, that's how he pronounces it. It's the fucking. Big Old on hold on.

I can see the steel waller could see off off to the side. I can't see what they're doing to me and I'm terrified. I am I am so terrified. It's all starting again the cutting me again the whole you know getting overwhelmed with it and and then I realized that I was stiff his aboard and part of me said that rational national pardon me came up and said Hey. You're so stiff. They're about to cut you. Do you WANNA be stiff when they're cutting. You and I said not a good idea so I said how do I do this not like a churchgoing religious guy that way but I'm very religious in my own way and I said what can I do so I decided to say the Lord's prayer so I said the Lord's prayer and when I was done with the woods prayer I was like okay now. What do I do because I don't believe I can ask for things. I just don't think that God's my butler. You're so I'm going. So what do I do and I started thinking. I said well you know what it was supposed to die. When you're five you were supposed to die when you were six. You weren't supposed to get past ten. You could have died on your seventeenth birthday. They didn't but the way that night they didn't think I'd make it through the night you've we've had. We've had this incredible television career. You married to a beautiful woman. You have a nice house. You have a Pug Lopez all over the house. You have all this stuff to be grateful for war and it's all really been gravy and if this is when it's over I've been giving way more than I should have ever expected and once once I had that and a guy onto that take a lot of sitting there stirring in your from the Lord's prayer to that list I made that list what and a have we didn't have for just going if this is it given how much I've been given I'm okay with it yes and then all of a sudden and this is one of those things in my life. I would normally not even agree with somebody when they told me this but all of a sudden I felt a presence and I felt this warmth this unbelievable warmth and I felt this the most the most powerful feeling of love I've ever felt in my life in Iraq and it just R- and then I heard the chorale I didn't even know existed you know but you know all of a sudden. I heard I mean you know. I heard I heard the you know I heard the chorale and I had tears rolling down my face. Nobody could see it but I had tears rolling down my face of happiness and I I was so filled with love and I so filled with joy so filled with gratitude and that's it from there. Did did you ever talk about what was going on at that moment. I'm wondering it sounds like white. People have described to me near death experiences. I wonder if he were flatlined for a second no no they they were just putting it in the pocket for the water was. I'd never lost consciousness. It was all but it was an incredibly powerful thing and then now that I'm so infused with this gratitude. The gratitude stayed with you out of that experience that add experience. I had been working towards it yeah but I think that somehow I got help and that just and then I realized because because here's something that's really interesting as far as way hospitals are today versus back in the fifties when your children there were no toys. There was no television television. You lay in bed with rails twenty four hours a day. Try doing that for a month. I did it twice and it's it's interminable will actually until I started writing my book. I thought it spent a year in the hospital. Each time while it was only a month and each time was thirty one time I'm in thirty one the other and and you think you have nothing else to do but think and I would think how can I help myself here and I would. I yeah that's where I learned how to disassociate disassociating almost immediately in the hospital. I built the cave I climb into and and I could disassociate associates so much I wouldn't. I wouldn't feel what they were doing to me. It turned out that dissociating that which is not the healthiest thing mentally correct so how'd you gain control over there. I went. I got help therapy trauma therapy looking. MBR Or something or I you know that's really interesting. I went to therapist after therapist after therapist and an and and none of them said that I had a trauma or any one woman Sarah Cinnamon and she goes. You're in trauma you are. It's not that may have been a anachronism of history because around the late nineties so we shifted were suddenly everybody was treating trauma. We realized that's mostly we were dealing with so it was severe for me really was debilitated in my life. I mean you hurt my life a lot. Did you have how did you get drinking or anything like that going. That's no but I I just always assumed and this is in the book and this is one of those things when I wrote what this book. I thought I had to be naked. I had to be if this book was going to have any value at all. I had to be one hundred percent honest and I had to admit things. I didn't want to admit one of the things I had to admit in this book was that destroyed had never been given event where I just kept it turned turned into where I thought it was my fault which is typical child thinking right. My my family broke up part of the reason for grateful guilt guilty of the family breaking up I just carry all this guilt and all the shame can tell you the shame I carried and took a long time and and we did. AMD are one time it was unbelievable really loosened the whole thing right and there's even a lot more stuff now. Now you can access the neuro feedback and stuff all kinds of cool stuff because so many people suffer from this and you know in our in my world. It's what you know because you dissociate appreciate you don't regulate effectively yeah and so you try to regulate from outside your body with drugs and Saxon whatever Tang gliding whatever you were doing the gliding was sort of that in their sure sure but it's all it's always of either and then how people respond to that dissociation. Shen is protein to some people try to pull themselves back in their body by cutting in experiencing other people try to induce the dissociation and make it more intense and then just regulate with substances that kind of thing my my real problem with it was that I never felt. I was any good and I felt like if Tom Anybody knew me long enough. They would find out vigil flawed yeah so I would sabotage everything. I sabotage work relationships. I sabotage I've sabotage Taj relationships with women women that could have been magic and sabotage them. You know it's amazing. I ended up with women.

"Let's go to Scott you live with Stephen what's up. Hello, Steven A. It's up. I'm I'm a bear fan longtime bear fan. I started going home games when I was eight years old. I miss two games. I am seventy one now. So obviously, I'm hooked on pro football. I love it. I don't miss a home game for anything. And I get stories about that. I won't tell you. But anyway, recently, you know, during the playoffs I hear things about focus concentration. This is the playoffs effort. So my question is my not see in the best effort during regular season. You know? And if so why not if you're not seeing that best effort during a regular season from home from from the players. I hear players now. I hear things last two weeks. I've heard the word focus more than anyone. It's not that. You don't focus is that it's doing die. It's like it's knowing there's tomorrow compared to not to knowing there is no tomorrow. It's a human instinct that comes along with it. So I would I would have put more more into that. You certainly you make an argument, and it's plausible your question is plausible. So I'm not trying to dismiss it. But because I understand what you're saying. In other words, your professional athletes. You're supposed to be focused and all your a game at all times, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. But human instinct mandates that when Moore is on the line. You're tighter, you're more locked in zeroed in etc. Etc. There's just extra levels in the human psyche that take fold for example, when you wanna done if you're playing for championship right as opposed to a regular season and evolved, sixteen games if you're playing basketball, for example, and it's eighty two games. Right. And then you go to a game seven of an NBA finals. Well, during those eighty two games, you know, there is tomorrow during. A best of four game series. You know that is elevated level of urgency, but there's still tomorrow. But when you're in a game seven of a championship series. There is no tomorrow. And as a result, you let it all hang out because there's no turning back. You don't get to recover or to gather a reprieve from this particular situation. This is it it's do or die and the human psyche. Just takes us the places that normally you couldn't go to under circumstances such as that. And that's what I peel from it playoffs. Create an atmosphere that you know, you you can get emotionally to a different level that you normally couldn't get that. Yeah. Something something along those lines. But again, it's not about the playoffs. It's about the fact because again playoffs, it depends on the sport. But ultimately, it's the do or die scenario that you find yourself in. In other words, there is no tomorrow. There's no tomorrow, you see life example, something totally unrelated to sports, right? If you're going down on.

"He caught eighty five passes. He was targeted one hundred six times. That means the Steelers were intending to give him the football four hundred and twenty seven times. And he ended up getting it four hundred and six times he was a second leading receiver on a Pittsburgh Steelers. What is love EON bell saying I deserve my money, and I don't deserve to be treated like just a running back. I pass catch out of the backfield. I'm a primary target for us the injustice the doing the running backs eight fair. Y'all give us the ball all day every day, you run us into the ground. And then you throw us out like yesterday's trash the second birth certificate touches thirty. So I'm not going for that. I spoke to Levy on bell months ago. I would know this. He specifically said it ain't just about me, Steven A. It's about all running backs. That's what he said. And he meant it and he's not playing and it's not just about dollars. It's about principle with him. I understand. And I agree with him. Especially when I watch Adrian Peterson perform and he's thirty five years. Oh, why are we writing off at age thirty like they do not play this because there are running back. It. Ain't right. I got it. The problem is. Levian bell has mishandled this entire situation. I am a person that was totally against those offensive lineman for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Ramon forced to and others. I thought they flat out, but trade him. I'm not saying because of how they feel I'm saying because of their willingness to express what they expressed publicly. I thought that was a travesty and that they should be ashamed of themselves to doing what they did. Without question. And I stand by that. And it's important that everybody understands that. Here's the flipside. That didn't excuse levian bell. For sending Instagram photos or footage is or whatever it was a him jet skiing and south beach while Steelers struggling. At he was happy about it. That didn't excuse Levy on bell for sending out cryptic tweets periodically remind everybody that he was still around. He was still available knowing good and Dan. Well. That was going to rub some of his teammates to wrong way who warrant the ones the providence of his money. And I must say this loud and clear. When my Tomlin of all people says in an interview, we want volunteer's, not hostages. It doesn't get more indicting than that. And the is a possibility is great as levian bell is and as much as we imagine that he will get his money because his talent warrants getting his money. We must concede. That it is entirely possible, and it is entirely plausible..
