"I don't know. It's hard to make good news. Sexy. It is. I think about this a lot. Is it just somebody could do that? Some entrepreneur could figure it out. Maybe. But you know, but I think it's like kindness. It's the stuff of moments, but it can be absolutely transformative in moments. And these beautiful lives are transformative and moments. And maybe they don't lend themselves and that's just fine. But what we have to we have to train ourselves to look for them. So what mindfulness is about in part. You know, in both there were two things that you just said, one of them is that when we are really paying attention, which is what mindfulness is, we really connect with other people. And lots of times I think for reasons of Russia or whatever, if it was our own children, we're not completely we're not completely there. I have a friend who's grandchild said to him as grandchild with whom he spends a lot of time said to him he was visiting and staying at the house and doing whatever it is. Grandpa do you love me? Said I, of course I love you. You do know that, don't you? He said, yes, you know, but I don't feel it when you aren't paying attention to me. So there is something about really paying attention. You know, Sylvia, we're going to go to questions in a minute, but I wondered if you'd just do it quick and dirty. Loving kindness. Take us through just the idea of the meta practice of a loving kindness meditation. Give everybody just a taste. Oh, we'll do it. Of what happens. We'll do it. Because this is something that's really central to you and to your teaching. And I think it's central to what we're talking about, cultivating in ourselves, thrilled that I get to tell it to everybody. Okay. So I have to give you a one minute explanation of what this is. The Buddha taught mindfulness meditation, which is a practice of paying attention moment to moment in a balanced way. He also gave instructions to at all times cultivate a loving heart. There's a particular sermon called the sermon on impartial love. Sometimes it's called the sermon, the Buddhist teaching unkindness. And it says that towards everyone we should wish may all beings be at ease in some translations. It says may all beings be happy, but may all being spirit is whatever living beings there may be. And then it goes through all the categories of living beings far and near and those you know, and those who don't know. And I've done it as a practice now for 25 years and I teach it mostly because I like it very much. And over the years, I've come to appreciate that it sounds like very much like a prayer for other people, maybe these people be well in these in these. And it is indeed. But I actually think it's most crucially a prayer for my own well-being because there is no, there's no time that I feel safer or happier than when I'm in touch with my own kindness of benevolence. And it's a blessing practice, essentially. And in the mode of blessing, they can't be any negativity. Negativity can not exist in a blessing mind. It would be like driving your car and forward and reverse at the same time. It can't happen. So it's actually the antidote to any negativity. And so we could do a very short. Reader's digest virgin of a metal practice. But it'll be fine. It will work anyway. And if you like, you could close your eyes as perfectly all right to have your eyes open if you'd rather not. But since I'm going to ask you to imagine somebody who might not be here, you might have an easy a time imagining with your eyes closed. So you don't have to sit in a special way, but if you want to close your eyes and just take a two deep breaths in and out in and out and a long breath in and out and in again and out. Feel yourself sitting here. Face of sitting here, face of surrounded by all these people. Feed yourself, I hope happy and content..

"Things. I don't know. It's hard to make good news. Sexy. It is. I think about this a lot as a company could do that. Some entrepreneur could figure it out. Maybe. But you know, but I think it's like kindness. It's the stuff of moments, but it can be absolutely transformative in moments. And these beautiful lives are transformative and moments. But before we have to, we have to turn ourselves to look for them. You know, there were two things that you just said, one of them is that when we are really paying attention, which is what mindfulness is. We really connect with other people. You know, lots of times I think for reasons of Russia or whatever. If it was our own children, when I completely there, I have a friend who's grandchild said to him, as grandchild, with whom he spends a lot of time said to him, he was visiting and staying at the house and doing whatever it is. I do love me. Said I, of course, I love you. Don't you, you do know that, don't you? He said, yes, you know, but I don't feel it when you aren't paying attention to me. So there is something about really paying attention. What seems most clear to me is that children pick up what their parents live. My friend Jim Finley, who's a Christian contemplative psychotherapist, said I learned to pray sitting next to my mother in church, and what I understood from him is that he didn't learn the words of the prayer. He learned the feelings out of her body. As she sat there, I think that children learn that from us, when we bless them in the natural way, if it's part of our way, then they feel right about it. We used to have certain kinds of blessing rituals in our family that we still do. But at some point, I elaborated on them. So we'd finish a blessing like the blessing at the end of the Sabbath. And then I'd say, and now everybody kisses everybody. And they all did it for a certain amount of years. Until my eldest grandchild, at some point, we finished the ritual, and I said, now everybody kisses everybody. He said, I don't think everybody does this. So all of a sudden he didn't want to kiss his girlfriend cousins, I think. But the kissing is extra. Blessing is blessing. Spirituality doesn't look like sitting down and meditating. Spirituality looks like folding the towels in a sweet way. And talking kindly to the people in the family, even though you've had a long day, or even saying to them, listen, I've had such a long day. It would be really wonderful if I could just follow these I'd really love folding these towels quietly. If you all are ready to go to bed without me or whatever it is. But I actually think that spiritual parenting, people often say to me, I have so many things that take up my dad and have time to take up a spiritual practice. And the thing about being a parent who might think of themselves as a wise parent or a spiritual parent doesn't take extra time. It's unfolded into the act of parenting. You are, you fold the towels in a sweet way. Doesn't take extra time. So Sylvia, one thing following on that loving kindness meditation is also towards oneself and you share a story and in your writing about precisely that but you share what you often say to yourself when you're in a moment of anxiety. Okay, so I think this is just great advice. I'm going to hang on to this. Sweetheart. You are in pain. Relax. Take a breath, let's pay attention to what is happening, then we'll figure out what to do. I think that's a fabulous fabulous sentences for oneself and four one's children. I'm so pleased that you found that. Do you know what it's tremendously pleasing to make as I meet people in some significant number who tell me that they say to themselves in moments of distress, I say they say, I say to myself, sweetheart, you're in pain, relax, take a breath. I love that the whole bunch of people out there saying to themselves, sweetheart. So as I promised, I want to end with a poem. We're going to let Pablo Neruda have the last word. Because you mentioned this in your writing as a poem that you always have with you and I printed it out and I think it's beautiful and I wonder if you'd give that leave that as a gift for all the rest of us. This is called keeping quiet. Now we will count to 12 and we will all keep still. For once on the face of the earth, let's not speak in any language. Let's stop for a second and not move our arms so much. It would be an exotic moment without rush without engines. We would all be together in a sudden strangeness. Fishermen in the cold sea would not harm Wales. And the man gathering salt would not look at his hurt hands. Those who prepare green wars wars with gas, wars with fire, victories with no survivors would put on clean clothes and walkabout with their brothers in the shade doing nothing. What I want should not be confused with total inactivity, life is what it is about if we were not so single minded about keeping our lives moving and for once could do nothing. Perhaps a huge silence might interrupt the sadness of never understanding ourselves and a frightening ourselves with death. Now I'll count up to 12. And you keep quiet..

"Road as a fork in the road here. I could become indignant. I could flame up this flame of negativity, or I could say, recalculating. I'll just go back here. This is an example of technology and telling us what spirituality is. Well, I think it's fun so much. And no matter how many times I don't make that turn, it will continue to say recalculating. The tone of voice will stay the same. I think it's a good analogy. But you know, about the technology, a lot of people have said, as you said, when we began life is so much different now and so much speed it up. And I noticed that people I was watching the news in the airport and not only did I was watching the news of the demonstration in Cairo and which was so exciting but underneath that in the rolling tape that's underneath it was every 15 seconds. And other piece of information on top of all this information is so much stuff to process. And it's so stimulating. And it's very seductive to say in a life has become so whizzed up and so busy, how can people possibly pay attention long enough to fix the world, which really needs many levels to get fixed. And I've been saying for a long time and I think that because of this technology because I remember a journalist saying that the reason the Berlin Wall came down, the proximal cause of the fall of the wall was the fax machine. Especially if I wrote that recently. And I've been thinking since then that the proximal cause of the world stopping and saying, you know, we have to do things a different way is going to be people all over the world saying just a second we destroying the biosphere and everything else will stop and look and say everybody. I usually carry a poem by Pablo Neruda. I'm going to have you read that. You brought it. I brought it. Oh, good. I brought it. I brought it to Detroit, but it's in my hotel room. I carried it with me always. I work to read that. We're going to give that as a gift to everyone because you gave it as a gift to me. Here's our radio moment. I'm Krista tippett on being conversation about meaning, religion, ethics, and ideas. Today, in a public conversation, on raising children in complex times, I'm with Buddhist teacher and psychotherapist. Mother and grandmother, Sylvia borstein. Her books include happiness is an inside job practicing for a joyful life. Sylvia, I want to ask you to this question of raising children, human beings who are kind. Who have a heart for the world, in a world that's troubled. When you and I met on a panel in Southern California two years ago. You told a story about leading mindfulness teaching sessions. And you told a story about, I think it was a man who at the end of it said, I'm frightened to go back out into the world. I feel so vulnerable and in here I'm safe. But I don't know how I can be out in the world and be vulnerable. And that story came back to me as I was thinking about interviewing you on this subject because I think as a parent, there's a version of that that goes through my mind. How much do I expose my children to? How do I teach them to be kind and open to the world's pain? And vulnerable. And yet, I want them to be safe. And I actually want them to be tough out in that scary world at the same time. Talk to me about that. Well, I remember misses it's a two part answer. I remember that I don't remember exactly that moment, but I'm sure it happened because it comes up often. And people will come and spend a week at a retreat center or a weekend or however many days. And then they do say, here everyone is safe and it's quiet and to go out. I feel too vulnerable. And it gives me a chance to say, you know, really, I don't think we can become too vulnerable. I'm waiting for the time that the whole world is suddenly too vulnerable and looks around and says, wait a minute, we're making a very big mistake. We all have to stop. We have to share. We have to make sure there's enough to eat all over the world. We have to stop. We can teach each other our ways and tell each other our hopes and dreams. But we can't kill each other. That doesn't work. And we can't kill the earth. And we can't despoil it as we're doing. So in a sense, that's a half of an answer, but because that's what I'd say to an adult who's leaving a retreat to a parent, I say, you know, as a child is growing up, inevitably, they live in the world, and they'll hear about things. If they live in a house that's a relatively peaceful, and we have a certain amount of control as parents about how much the TV is on and what's on the TV and how much how much they are confronted by the pain of the world. And you know what, I think, since for myself, really, sometimes with the pain of the world seems incomprehensible. And unbearable to me. But I think if there's anything that balances it, it's the wonder at the world, the amazingness of people, how kind they are. How resilient they are, how people will take care of people that they don't know, somebody falls or someone's in trouble in a public place. People take care of them. People take care of people that they don't know that human beings have that ability. I don't think they have to learn it. They don't have to have lessons. I think we're a companionable species. And for the most part, every once in a while, we meet hermitage people, but for the most part, we're companionable. And congenial, and we care about other people, and we take care of them. So to be able to look at human beings and say, human beings are amazing, life is amazing. The sun came up in the exact right place this morning. And celebrates seasons. I think that's a wonderful part of being part of a group of people who celebrate seasons and birthdays and holy days. So that here.

"I'm Krista tippett and this is on being today for Mother's Day Jewish Buddhist teacher and psychotherapist Sylvia borstein. This conversation with Sylvia transformed how I think about parenting and helped me realize that the inner work of nurturing ourselves as human beings is not a luxury, but something we do in service to the children in our lives. I think you've said something like that you are measuring stick for how clearly you're thinking is how, if you're able to be kind. Oh, I think that, you know, I have been talking a lot about kindness in the last few years. It's in a sense a humble word when we think about spiritual practices or if I think about 30 years more years ago when I began to be interested in a meditative path, we talked about things like enlightenment and revelation. And kindness is much more humble. But I actually think kindness is what I really like to establish in myself. The Dalai Lama, when people ask him what's your religion, says my religion is kindness. And I think it's a word that subsumes tolerance and forgiveness and graciousness and the patience, all of those things are kindly. Those folks on the plane were being kind to their child kind to each other kind of the whole plane. By their ability to keep it together. What I like about kindness is that it's doable. And unlike those virtues, like compassion, or even tolerance that you have to cultivate, it can be a lifetime cultivating those things. You can actually be kind to someone even if you don't feel especially compassionate or it can be an act. It's an act. And I think it's on the way to actually genuinely being compassion. The way the way I keep thinking about a crystal is when I'm kind in any circumstance, whatever someone cuts in front of me and going with a basket in the supermarket and someone zips in right in front of you. And you only have two items in your basket anyway. So he could have not. So your mind thinks the thought. And but when my mind thinks of that life that they shouldn't have done that, in that moment, I'm complicating my own mind with my own negativity, which I rather not do. But if I could catch myself to that, and instead think to myself, who knows, maybe he's late for some place, maybe he really needs to be, maybe this is urgent, May he be well, May he get there in a good shape, May he live happily. Then I don't really mess up my own mind. And I arrived two minutes later in the supermarket checkout. So I've done myself a kindness. And the wisdom, I think, that comes from that upsetting the mind, is he never know. I really don't know where that person is going. And he's never know whether it's good to go out now or two minutes later. Maybe, you know, who knows what traffic he'll get into or I just did not fight with the moment. There they are, why complicated? I think we're in the habit of doing that a lot. And I suppose we modeled that for our children, then they become like that too. Do you have thoughts about passing this kind of idea this kind of teaching on to children? Even as I say that, I realize that probably the best way is to be like that. I remember my daughter who's 17 now. She said to me the other day. So is this one of those do.

"Blessing for yourself. The meta practice loving kindness practice always begins with a blessing for yourself. So think for yourself, may I feel safe? And those words in your mind. May I feel content? May I feel strong? May I live with ease? Think about past the people that you recognize in the world, familiar strangers, all the unfamiliar, strangers, near and far, all people just like us with lives, who want just as we do. To live in safety and contentment, be able to feel strong, to have lives of ease, wish for all those people. All beings near and far. May you feel safe. May you feel content. May feel strong. May you live with ease. You can find and download the whole 8 minute guided meditation Sylvia borstein did for us in Detroit in the on.

"WDET, Detroit public radio, and metro parent magazine. I stumbled across your book about ten years ago, I think when I was first having the idea for this show, her book, that's funny, you don't look Buddhist. Because Sylvia is one of the people who literally brought Buddhism to the west to the United States in the 1970s. And was Jewish, like a lot of the people who brought Buddhism to the west in the 1970s. A lot of people who we still are household names with Buddhism in the United States. But she's also written over the years about how she has come back to really richly integrate that with her Jewish identity. Finding again in Judaism, the imagery and poetry and ancestry and continuity that nourish her. And that she's also passed on to her children. So when I thought of Sylvia's, this wise person, I started Googling to see if you ever wrote about children and parenting and grandparenting. What I found is that in her bio description, everywhere I could find it, she lists herself this way. She has lots of credentials, but it started out Sylvia borstein is a wife, mother, grandmother, author, teacher, psychotherapist. And I thought, that's it. This is our person. Actually, I'm happy that I'm happy that you discovered that. I think it's true. I'd normally describe myself that way. And I find that when people say, what are you proudest of in your whole life? It's clear to me that I am most proud of the fact that my children now really adults all of them now, three of the four of them are in their 50s. And so that's really a substantial credential. And they're all very, very nice people. And that is my best. That's what I'm proudest of. And my grandchildren are coming along and they are very good people. And I'm so proud of that. That's the best thing. I don't think I've done it. I have certainly haven't done it alone. I've done it with their father, and I've done it with their teachers and with our community. But they are, I think, my most important work in my life. How many grandchildren do you have? I have 7. So, you know, one thing that I enjoyed reading in, I think it was in your book, that's funny you don't look Buddhist. Your father's mother that would have been your Jewish grandmother. Was your first Buddhist teacher that she used to tell you, where is it written? You were supposed to be happy all the time. In fact, you have to know that I grew up in a post depression household, both my parents.

"Of her teacher and mentor, doctor Harold humm. Her dissertation involved scuba diving off the Gulf of Mexico to document marine life. Her work became a landmark study in her field for decades to come. But Sylvia scuba expeditions were just beginning. In 1968, she joined the man in sea project. Where participants lived underwater for extended periods. Sylvia was the first woman to do this experiment, and she was four months pregnant at the time. In 1969, Sylvia applied to be part of another underwater habitat project, called the tektite two project. When the review committee read her application, they were blown away by her credentials. She had over a thousand hours of diving and robust research experience. But the committee hadn't considered that women would apply for this position, and they didn't want male and female scientists living together underwater. Instead, the committee tasked Sylvia with leading an all female diving team. In the summer of 1970, Sylvia and four other women descended into an underwater habitat off the coast of the U.S. Virgin Islands and spent two weeks documenting the sea life. Sylvia surfaced a star. She and her team were invited to The White House and honored at a parade in Chicago. She began speaking and writing about marine life, bringing her passion for the ocean to the public. Alongside her writing and speaking appearances, she continued diving all over the world. In 1979, she set the world record for untethered diving. Becoming the first woman to scuba 1250 feet underwater. In the 1980s, she cofounded deep ocean engineering and deep ocean technology. She even helped design deep rover, a submersible that could hold one person and travel up to 3000 feet underwater. Over the course of her career, Sylvia authored over 200 publications, lectured in over 80 countries, led over a hundred marine expeditions and spent over 7000 hours underwater. In 1990, Sylvia was the first woman to become the chief scientist at the national oceanic and atmospheric administration. She was named Time Magazine's first hero for the planet and received the Ted prize. Today, Sylvia continues educating people about marine biodiversity and fighting to protect the world's oceans. She founded a nonprofit called mission blue, which works to build a network of marine protected areas called hope spots.

"You know, you can sell a dead fish. Actually, you can still lie fish too. One of the most, but in a different sort of way that fish taken out of the ocean alive sold for the pet trade or I think probably one of the most successful aquaculture facilities pound for pound is in raising fish for home aquariums. But continue to take them out of the ocean, you take a couple or maybe 6 or ten, and you turn them into moms and dads, they create a lot of kids that never see the ocean, but they see a lot of friendly faces admiring them as gorgeous creatures that they take care of for the rest of their lives however long they may be. But the idea that I kind of got off on a track, but the idea that we don't value nature, we think of trees, board feet of lumber, or they're in the way. Let's get rid of those trees. There's a cost to burning them or cutting them so we can plant corn or tobacco or soybeans or cows, they're kind of in the way. So they're just, they're not only not free. They're a problem. That's been our habit over much of the planet. So how do we flip that Sylvia? Start with the kids that start with everybody. Best hope, really. I can't despair, because the knowledge is really there. And it's our superpower. We have to match our superpower of knowing with an equally important superpower of caring. You have to want to take this knowledge and consider that this is a time of greatest opportunity ever. We know what to do. And their business opportunities, but we've got to get smarter.

Pope Francis Encourages Covid Vaccines in Media Campaign
"Bid to counter vaccine skepticism and hesitancy. Pope Francis has added his voice to the chorus of leaders urging everyone to get inoculated against Covid 19. NPR's Sylvia Poggioli reports on the pontiff's public service message. In the video, Francis says vaccines grant us the hope of ending the pandemic, but only if they are available to all and if we work together, competent being vaccinated with vaccines authorised by the competent authorities, the pope says, is an act of love. Love is also social and political, The pope adds. It's universal. When Francis was vaccinated in February, he said, it's an ethical obligation. Vaccine.

But the Vatican has declared the covid vaccines morally acceptable for Catholics, including those based on research that use cells derived from aborted fetuses. Sylvia

Pointing to another star and one over there sylvia. After a few minutes they stopped counting and just stared into the night sky. The moon is peaking through those trees. Cnn asked daddy pointing. Martin sat up to see the moon and was struck by how many lightning bugs there were in the yard. It's like stars. He said but all around us daddy then joined them on the quilt. In all four snuggled while they marveled at the stars and the lightning bugs sparkling around them when the moon was high enough he got back up and adjusted the telescope.

And then she took a sudden breath in i see it. I see it then. She was quiet for a moment. And then said i see everything. There's bumps but i don't see any moon people or cheese. You look martin. She made way for martin who adjusted the ip and then said whoa then he looked up at the moon with his own eyes to compare it itself big. Do you see any cheese. Sylvia asked no said martin as he studied the surface of the moon. I don't think so. Mostly just holes in mountains. Wow the four of them took turns looking through the telescope and then lying down on the quilt and staring up at the night sky. Mama pointed out a few groups of stars that made a pattern when you connected the dots. Those stars over there make what's called the big bear ursa major. Some people call it the big dipper like a like like a big ladle see. Why does the bear have a ladle asked sylvia. I think it just looks a little like a ladle.

When sylvia saw him get his squirrel she was delighted and grabbed three of her own stuffed animals. Let's make the pillows into mountains suggested sylvia and then we can play animals. Brother and sister adjusted the quilts and pillows. Just so when daddy announced the dinner was ready. Can we play dinner. Asked martin you can play while. I set up telescope said daddy as they all sat down at the patio table as they ate. Martin noticed the sky. Start to dim. It's almost night time. He said quietly then. Sylvia perked up her ears. What is that sound. They all got quiet and listened then. They heard the radley croaking of frogs coming from the browns frog pond mixed with the gentle hum of crickets singing. That's nice said mama. They continued to listen when martin heard a beautiful bird call. What is that he asked with. Wide is. That is a hermit. Thrush said mama some call it song liquid gold. I always thought it sounded like ferry song. They all imagined fairies in the woods singing the magically wobbly tune. It felt special martin's smiled when dinner was over.

Even though they were going outside daddy set up the telescope next to the quilt and when martin and sylvia came back outside to join him they spotted the first lightning bug. Lock pointed martin. Everyone froze and watched the quiet flash of the lightning bug drift across the lawn. Sylvia saw a second bug and then they counted three more. When they got onto the quilt.

We'll all be together and besides wild animals of the forest are not at all interested in being around us. Okay said martin who remained quiet for a while when daddy and sylvia got back. They all shared a lunch of summertime. Salad that had boiled eggs in tuna and olives and pickles along with different kinds of lettuce. Then everyone went to their beds for a rest period. Martin and sylvia agreed that the best plan for staying awake later would be to fall right to sleep so while mommy and daddy read their books brother and sister lay on their beds and closed their eyes but both of them were too curious about the night ahead to successfully fall asleep after rest time martin and sylvia started a game of explorers and they forgot all about staying up late. They spent time in the brook cologne. The back pretending it was a jungle river. They spent time behind the woodpile pretending it was a mountain cliff and they spent time under the spruce tree pretending it was a forest cave. Then daddy started the outdoor grill for dinner and he pretended to be pioneers gathering around a campfire. Then sylvia's started getting excited about the night. When will they get dark. She asked surveying the sky. It will still be a while. Said daddy tending the grill. Maybe we should make a special cozy place on the lawn.

The Legacy and the Future of Pride Month
"June twenty eighth nine thousand nine hundred sixty nine fifty two years ago. Police raided the stonewall in a gay bar and the uprising. That followed was led by trans activists. Marsha p johnson and sylvia rivera and it sparked a movement that has continued for decades marsha and sylvia like the trans vibe in lower manhattan at the time. It was real. They were taking up space at the stonewall inn and other places and that's why when the police raided they were like nana. You're not gonna quietest so. The first pride march in new york city was held on the one year anniversary of that uprising at stonewall similar marches went on in chicago san francisco los angeles but the history of that is rooted in resistance towards police violence over the last few years. It's like you know. Hey everybody is celebrating pride there you see. Cvs there you see comcast there you see. At and t. Putting out statements basically professing to be lgbtq allies but still giving money to politicians who are pushing anti lgbtq legislation and this is just three out of the twenty five companies that are actually pushing anti lgbtq federal state politicians. So as june comes to an end can do a little bit of a temperature. Check kinda how are you feeling at this moment in our. I'm wondering how are you thinking about this moment in going forward in two thousand twenty one post pandemic to put it singly. I think that aside from everything i think. That pride is as much about a recommitment to the unfinished business of nineteen. Sixty-nine as it is a celebration celebration has to be a part of any type of commemoration especially for people color. It's how we retain joy in the moments of difficulty but at the same time. I think that we have to recognize that. There's a lot of unfinished business. And specifically when it comes to the intersection of gender identity and race and economic opportunity all of those things that sylvia and marsha embodied in their life of the challenges in the hope that still remains very much on the table. And so i think that's what pride is every year and that's what i look to do with a recommitment

The creator of flop them all a new poker training program which you created with poker pros russell. Thomas and jesse sylvia so the greed is all about the collision of universal the theoretical aspects of poker the vapor specific and how a hand is situated into the theory of poker itself. And so. I'm really happy that today's ren- chosen hand. That does both. It is a hand that she loves for its chameleon theoretical properties. anna had. The tape played at a live tournament when she was just getting super into poker six suited. Hello shereen welcome to the great and thanking for tackling this combo. Yes thank you for inviting me on here. Really excited to talk to you about all of us. Choose five six suited or six five suited. It's funny. I usually say five six suited but i feel like poker players have thing of saying things in descending order and so i try to lake correct and i guess it's usually more about like the flop that they care about the descending order but i still try to say everything in that order to get myself into more of the poker lingo. I think low suited connectors a lot of boettger players. Say it the way that you intuitively said it five six suited. I really hear both ways either as good and tell us a little bit about this particular hand and why it's intriguing to you and of course the hand that took place at the win. Yeah so just five suited on its own as a hand really interests me because i got through building flop symbol. I got super into poker solvers and his writing sims myself over the last year. And so i live and breathe pre flop sense every day and and so you find these like like deep tree spots where really around the five vertical on the grid. Where like ace five suited starts doing interesting things. King five suited like ace five. At least you can get like the the wheel straight so. Yeah so you get like the ace five get straight but even kings five suited search doing interesting things in in deep spots when you're defending it from the big blind a minute goes all the way down to five six suited. Four five suited where. Let's say you are facing this like multi all in call up. Call caw caw. And what like the way that the pre flop Ranges change as more and more people calling. All in right is that it gets fewer and fewer hands to call. It really comes down to like queens up even start losing your as kings. You get to point where it's just as you can only call with aces. And then the solver does a really interesting thing which is after that point it starts adding in four or five suited by six suited in particular five six suited. And so like. It's just one of these crazy spots and what it actually means is basically like if you're if you're ever like super deep and you're like the very big stack at a table and then there's all this crazy action going on and you somehow wake up in position with five six suited the call and maybe it's not a call depending on how you wanna live your life but like if you're yellowing it and going forward and if you're a believer in this oliver's like then it's a call and for that reason i referred these hands mainly five six suited but also like four or five sometimes six or suited very occasionally eight ten suited pops in their these low suited connectors the god
Murders and Disappearances: Can Psychics Solve the Crimes?
"Now like i said i don't think it's outside the realm of possibility that a person can have psychic abilities. I do think that sylvia brown did not have psychic abilities. But i wanted to present you with some cases where psychics got it right. it turns out. Those cases are very hard to find. Even if you pop over to reader's digest dot com which i don't recommend and read articles with headlines like twenty times psychics. Got it right once. You barely scratched the surface on those cases. You find out. It's a little more complicated. It's super hard to get good. Statistics on police use psychics and investigations. Police don't really like to talk about how much they rely on psychics and in some cases get older. The information on them changes drastically if you read five articles about a case from fifty years ago. Each written in subsequent decade. You'll find the reporting goes from police. Credit so-and-so psychic for pointing them in the right direction to initially police admitted to using a psychic helped but later retracted the statement to eventually police adamantly deny using psychic and the case and claim that any information a psychic may have given was patently wrong. So it's a little hard to keep track of but according to an article in forbes. The cia conducted a study and found that eight out of eleven police officers. Polled said. they used psychics to help them solve crimes. Eight out of eleven. Oddly enough. I couldn't gain access to the cia report even though it was supposed to be declassified the link was broken i think someone high up read the report and was like fuck. Now burn that shit but eight out of eleven is a lot. I don't even think eight out of eleven people believe in psychics. Generally eight out of eleven even if those numbers are inflated and it's more like five out of eleven. Don't you think there must be something we don't know and look there could be many reasons caught. Might turn to a psychic desperation. Laziness appeasing distraught loved ones and even if afterward they try to back pedal and make it. Look like the psychic wasn't helpful. It does make you wonder why. So many police officers who aren't generally known for their hippy. Dippy reported using psychics to help them solve cases.

Wet Notes for 2-28-21
"This is wet notes on scuba shaq radio for sunday february twenty eighth two thousand and twenty one. Well i up today. I'm going to do an update on dry suit talq now ever since i've owned a dry suit i've been using those little pouches of talk to dust my wrist seals and neck seals. And that makes it easier to put on especially if it gets a little humid. Well we used to get these little pouches from magnet who then became gear aid when we could no longer get them from juried. We switched to getting them from diving unlimited international or dui. Recently we ran low on these talca pouches. Wanted to order some more. But do you. I stopped producing those talk pouches. I guess i'm guessing near some concern around. The safety of talk i noticed has been in news over recent years. So donna reached out to peak from dui and he suggested cornstarch to dust are seals. Make sure you do it every time now. That sounds a little strange to me. But it looks like people are using it in place of the talq. We'll give it a try. And i'll let you know how goes cornstarch. It's not just for cooking next up. Is things start opening up and we travel outside the country. We're going to need to get tested for in nineteen before we can come back well. Resorts are out there. And they're starting to accommodate their customers and making it easier to get tested. So for example. I just saw where enroll roett to resorts. The turquoise bay dive resort and the mayan princess beach dive resort are offering onsite cova testing on thursdays and fridays. And then what happens. Is you'll get electronic. Results are available in three hours. And then you'll have a hard copy the next day now you still have to pay for it in a costs about fifty bucks. Then i also check the cocoa view site down there and roett tan and it looks like they are also offering onsite testing but their prices coming in at eighty five dollars so it looks like if you're going to travel to row attend you'll find it easier to get tested for corona virus and get back home as long as you test negative but i think more and more of these dive operators out there are going to provide that cova testing or options for people so that you can go travel and then make it easier for you to get back home. Also last i think a couple of weeks ago. The president of the united states signed executive order. One three nine eight and with that executive order it mandated. That masks are to be worn on all public maritime vessels including ferries. What does that mean for dive boats. Well deana did. Some research and found out that this mandate includes commercial vessels used for dive charters and dive related activities. You'll need to be masked up upon boarding disembarking and the duration of travel. Obviously this can only apply to us. Operators i think this makes sense and i'm sure common sense will prevail given our unique circumstances when we go diving way back in the beginning of two thousand twenty i did a segment on dive travel insurance then in mid two thousand and twenty. I noticed the divers alert network. Dan their travel insurance was not available on their website is back now. However there was a short article on dive newswire that indicated that there are qualified cove in nineteen related cancellation and interruptions covered. There's a lot of detail on their website. You can read through. Essentially they cover prepaid travel arrangements. If you your host at your destination you traveling companion or family member test positive for covid. Nineteen there's also levels of coverage while traveling but you need to do your research. The good news however is that the dan travel insurance is back and it looks like they are helping to try and address the corona virus issues. It's always a good day when i go out to the mailbox and that the latest issue of the journal of diving history has arrived. That happened earlier this week. The cover of the first quarter two thousand twenty one magazine features to five women who made up the team of tech tight to mission six dash fifty. Which was america's first off female saturation team. The five women included peggy lucas. An hurley hotline renata lynch true elena schmidt and sylvia earle the journal of diving history. Formerly historical. diver magazine is the official magazine of the historical diving society. Usa and is part of your membership. I can't wait to dive into all the articles i saw. The other day that there's been a an oil spill off the coast of israel and lebanon and it's impacting over one hundred miles of coastline. Now what's a little disconcerting about this is that they don't know where this is coming from this washing up on the beaches. It's the seems like there's some sort of gag order on the release of information. I'm just not sure why there was. Also a thin whale washed up on the beach apparently with oil in its loans. They say this is undoing. Much of the progress made over the last thirty years. Let's hope they figure out where this is coming from or where it came from. And if they're able to minimize the impacts and finally here's some really big news in the scuba industry especially related to scuba tanks. Luxembourg is getting out of the aluminum tank business on february twenty third. Luxor held their fourth quarter and full year. Two thousand and twenty analysts call and that's where they announced their divestiture of their aluminum product lines now. The rationale according to their press release is that they wanted to focus on high performance magnesium alloys zirconium catalysts and high pressure composite cylinders. Guess to profit margin. Just wasn't there on the aluminum tanks. They plan on selling those two aluminum forming operations in the united states and one in the in the uk. But we don't know who they're going to sell it to just yet more to come on. This is it as it. Unfolds now luxembourg. They produced a lot of tanks. And there's a lot of them out there and we're going to see what that does to the supply chain as we move forward.

Is is pivot is the word. I love the geller. Mantra they saw. Hey i can't do business the way that i was before i've got a pivot somehow and that's really how the automation hours reborn like. We were going to have these going for two weeks as we find the curve and it was going to be done jokes on us. It's still going and so we have to go.

Be able to know.

You go to the doctor and you've got some sort of chest pain in the ass. You how you're doing. You're saying. Ben tastic dot can ever better like you're going to have a hard time.

We're getting into this today. So i'm like what about all these things doc looking at her like how could you say you're good with all these example. I know and that's really cool that it that it just took off like that you know you were only planning on having it a couple of weeks and here we are. That's amazing now.
