Virus surge breaking infection records across the US
"Across the us. Lear seeing a record-breaking surge in kobe cases on thursday the us reported more than one hundred and fifty thousand new cases just a day alone. The scary thing about it is that if you look on a curve. It's just going straight up but we don't know where this curve ends. We don't know where the peak is. This could be just the very beginning of the curve. That's mine one a science reporter for the post. He's been looking into why there's been such a huge spike. In kobe cases this part of fall surge. A lot of experts were warning about getting colder. People are moving indoors but also i think there's just this pandemic fatigue people are tired of taking precautions that plays a huge role. You've got a lot more activity going on. You know back in spring. Even the summer a lot was still shut down. People were not going out there. Being more careful you've got a lot of economic activity resuming and that's gonna lead to you know more spread. I also wonder if there's personally like a fear factor here. I feel like if you think back to how he felt in april and may just felt like there was this sense of being consumed by fear of getting sick and hearing all the horror stories and that fear is there. I think that because so many of us are living our lives. It's easy to forget like well. You know it's like. I'm gonna take precautions to the best of my ability. But i'm still carrying on with my life and i wonder if that has started to edge out a little bit of the precautions. That people were taking previously totally. I think that's like a very big factor in this. It's just we're you know there's this whole all this talk of like we're learning to live with it. That like really downside of that is we really are learning to live with it in that. Just you know a thousand people dying. Every day is like a matter of fact if he told someone that you know in january like you know. In a few months we're going to have people just dying in droves day and people aren't gonna care would be unthinkable back then. So where are we seeing the most intense hot spots and outbreaks right now there are hot spots are concentrations especially in the midwest and the west. But it's everywhere this time you know. In spring it was new york and california in summer you talked about the sun bell. Texas florida georgia. But this time. It's just everywhere. The hardest hit spots though are a lot of these places. That didn't have it before. North dakota wisconsin montana. These are the last frontiers untouched by the virus. And once it's reached there it seems like is just taking off and for the places in the country that are experiencing these outbreaks for the first time. Are there particular challenges for them. That's different from something like new york where they have now had multiple experiences with going through this rise in cases. There's the problem of not having experience a lot of hospitals In new york california they have lot of that built inexperience in their. Icu's there's also this factor. That's hard to talk about but it's just politics a lot of these harder hit states right now. They're republican conservative. These are a lot of the states for the people. Listen to trump. When he said you know you could wear a mask or not wear mass. We can learn to live with this just as bad as the flu. These are kind of the key audiences for that. And so when it's hitting these states and people are not reacting to it like you might have seen in some of the democratic states that's a really potent factor as well so obviously we're seeing this very precipitous rise and the infection rates. But what are we seeing in the death rates and the number of people who are dying. The greatest thing that's happened in our fight against the virus is we've driven down the death rate and it's just the wild success that is attributed to we know more about the virus like you re think back to those times in new york. You had doctors kind of discovering Pruning people's bodies like putting them on their stomachs turning them. You have icu nurses who just know you know went to put someone on ventilator better and when not to when you do everything you can to avoid that because of the death rate that comes with that so a of this. It's just hard one experience. And that's the thing that's really worrisome. This time around. All those icu. Staff that is really specialized expertise. You can have nurses come in from other departments and try to help out but as those hospitals get stretched thinner and thinner in the icu expertise. Kind of ood evaporates death rate. There's a very good chance of it rising. And it's not some like set thing that's in stone. Once you achieve this death rate will never go up again. It changes and fluctuates. Even between states can change and fluctuate That's so interesting. I hadn't thought about that before. Because i feel like at the beginning of the pandemic so much of our conversation was are they're going to be. Nf doctors healthcare workers. What happens if some of them get sick. How is staff gonna be stretched thin just from the perspective of human bodies to throw at this problem. But now what you're seeing. Is that this improved. Death rate is only because so many of those healthcare workers actually had that experience from the last seven or eight months and that in of itself is not something that we can rely on as the problem gets larger. Yes what's going to happen this time around. Why people are so worried about this. Wave is very soon. You're gonna see all the problems that we had before starting to pile up but new ones too on top of that. So we all this time. But we never really fixed are shortages of p for all the trump administration's talk of how they were gonna take charge the really just refuse to use the powers. They had in the last few months to push companies and coordinate our country's manufacturing distribution of ppe and same thing on testing. I mean there's been a really great increase of testing. We've increased by a lot but the demand for testing is awesome increased dramatically. So there are those past problems. But you're also gonna have a shortage of expertise because last time if you remember a beacon call in third doctors and nurses that came rushing to help with the virus everywhere across the country. You can't you can't send people certain place. Everywhere is running out of doctors and nurses in icu expertise. That's something that is really concerning this time around. So if this is what we're already starting to see and we're here the middle of november. Obviously it's getting colder. More people are going to be indoors at the rest of the winter. And then there's also thanksgiving and christmas and these times of year where it feels really really difficult to just say. I'm not going to interact with anybody. How do we expect this to continue to unfold in the next couple of months. Yeah this part. I feel bad i feel like every time you invite me on the show like really tessa mystic. But there's so many things that are kind of pointing this the wrong way so you do have like the holidays coming up if you look at what happened in canadian thanksgiving which is earlier than ours. It trove infections way up there. There's a lot of worry that the same thing is going to happen with a double whammy of thanksgiving christmas. You have colder weather which makes helps the virus survive better with less humidity the pandemic fatigue which is going to increase. But there's this added thing now where there's also this political coal polarization. That is very dangerous so if you think about it. We have ten weeks until the biden inauguration during those ten weeks people are saying well. You know we're going to reset. The effort will get our ducks in a row. And we'll do it right this time. In those ten weeks you could have the infection rate. Doubling

The International Reaction To Joe Biden's Win
"Farm minister who has now tweeted. Congratulations joe biden. On your spectacular. Victory joined with other nations. Latest around the world congratulating congratulate and on behalf of new zealand. Vicky nice including lights. I want to congratulate president-elect buydell and vice president-elect harris. us allies around. The world have moved quickly to congratulate president. Joe biden vice president-elect kamala harris on their win even as president trump still refuses to concede the election for countries like canada france and germany. Biden's victory could signal a return to cooperation on alliances like nato and treaties including the paris climate agreement but the prospect of a biden administration seems less promising to more authoritarian leaders with whom president trump ford strong relationships during his time in office including north korea's leader kim jong un brazilian president jair bolsonaro chinese president. Xi jinping who so far have all refrained from publicly congratulating biden and harris. Joining me now is yes means. Sirhan london base staff writer at the atlantic. Thanks for joining us again. As mean thanks for having me also with us. Clouds ladas professor of history and international affairs at the university of north carolina. chapel hill. Klaus good to have you with us. Thank you hello. How are you doing all right. We are in very interesting political moment right now. The president trump has refused to concede and yet president-elect biden is moving forward and the world is noticing clouds. How would you describe the scope. So far of the international reaction to biden's victory well on the whole thing that has been a lot of rejoicing a lot of applause for biden. I think people are hugely relieved that the trump administration will not have a second term and most people are most leaders in in europe and asia and of people in that country's overjoyed. I six they were really getting fed up for the trump administration. It was too dramatic too. Chaotic to unpredictable and people are relieved to see a new administration. I cost you said the administration was dramatic and unpredictable. And i think many americans would agree with you but it continues to be dramatic and somewhat unpredictable. Given the fact that the trump administration is now calling for recounts and investigations into what they allege voter. Inconsistencies are world leaders looking at that and saying anything about that. The fact that they're still Has not been a concession from president trump. Well del shaking their hands. Most of them are shaking the hats but the key for that sorts to themselves because it is no point to interfere in businesses seen as domestic american politics very few people at least very few democratic leaders have any understanding for what is going on in washington. It seems to be pretty obvious that the was of a free and walls not done in a fraudulent way at all and over. Four million people can vote for biden Rather than for trump's majority will lots of for millions of popular vote. He won miss. Four million people and the people have accepted. That biden is president-elect. And booby the new president but they are. You know wondering what's going on in washington but hardly anyone is actually surprised. At the trump administration would embark on such a course of action because that fits in with what is administration was like chaotic dramatic unpredictable and quite irrational to some extent mean given what klaus just laid out there in terms of the continued reaction to the world leaders at least us allies. Saying you know okay. We'll watch what's happening and see how this all plays out. How much of the reaction you think is excitement about biden himself versus relief about removing president trump from office. It's a great question. I mean it's worth noting An and i thought can of clauses overview spot on that you know for a lot of world biden is a very familiar character He certainly not new to the world stage. I think it was in. Benjamin netanyahu the israeli prime ministers congratulations that he noted that he's known biden for forty years. And i think a lot of world leaders know biden. So it's i. I think probably if i had to guess my assessment would be that it's probably the latter. I think a lot of i think a lot of the protests you are seeing in the us in the days after the result was finally announced was probably fell at least to me is an american observing from afar like a lot more relief than necessarily you know excitement. This isn't to say that you know. Folks don't like biden or unexcited to see him at the helm on his set a recognizable figure. But i think the world generally kind of just took a big sigh of relief that you know here returns a. Us option that recognizes. The us is traditional role in the world and will hopefully be kind of retaking that spot on the international stage. And yasmin. you are in london. Where prime minister. Boris johnson has had a strong relationship with president trump. How do you think this relationship between the us and the uk will evolve under a biden administration. It's a really good question. There's certainly been a lot of chatter about that very thing here kind of leading up to the us election and now after that we knew the result i think there is some conjecture that you know obviously as you just said President trump and prime minister. Johnson had a pretty good relationship. I think a lot of that stemmed from the fact that president trump was quite a big supporter of brexit. And you know. I think kind of quite appreciated the sort of comparisons between him and johnson superficial is some of the may be particularly. I think he quite liked references to johnson. As britain trump some remembering correctly and there has been some talk about some potential tensions between biden administration and johnson's downing street. I'm particularly with regard to brexit. Biden has been very clear about his support for the good friday agreement and opposing anything that would undermine it. And i think there's also some talk about how you know johnson before he was prime minister had made some comments with regard to president obama's support for britain staying in the eu. Where i think he made comments about obama's kenyan ancestry in how he had an ancestral dislike of the british empire so these are no doubt comments that administration would probably remember well. But i think it's worth noting that you know. These are things. I do not think are going to shake up the uk us relationship. In a major way. I think there's a lot more that And biden share particularly with regard to issues like climate change like the iran deal and. Yeah i mean. I think more broadly i would expect pretty good. Relations between the us and the uk going forward While it's certainly true. That trump and johnson had had a decent relationship I think you know the uk is is certainly a country that would see its relationship with the us being important irrespective of who's empower claus does not same theory hold true for other. You leaders like angela. Merkel for example and wilma call who themselves had troubled relationships with president trump. And who i can imagine so far are somewhat relieved to see this New administration elect. Yeah the But regarding johnson outside that johnson dossier a little insecure. He was the first international leader. I believe who fold up biden and congratulate him. They said i think that shows the level of insecurity and also abidance irish background. Bill make him wonder how. how how much you consult poured onto the united states in the future and the united vendor the united kingdom needs a trade. Deal the us. And i think he is for it. You know i think he would probably have seen a second trump administration as being more helpful regarding angela merkel and other european leaders. They certainly were relieved. Undiplomatic led a very bad relationship with trump or with raza. Put it the other way. Round a macro tried in various locations to make overtures to trump it was trump really rejected it who couldn't really in the end stand. Angela merkel nothing kid. He had a problem with female leaders. You had the problem as lead us. Who voted much more open to immigration and to do something about asylum people who were looking for asylum in their countries and he could understand and he also criticised the eu including germany for its huge trade deficit of us united states or rather to the united states of course had trade deficit busy you and he almost criticized the eu and it's trade policies. As much as he did china he called the eu. Actually a foe. Which is you know really surprising that you consider your most longest standing allies in the world that you suddenly regard them. As foes at least in trade relations. So underline michael and the german establishment as well as the french and other foreign policies tablets in europe are usually relieved that they see the end of the trump administration and us yes-men just that biden has a very good reputation. He is regarded to be quite honest as perhaps a little too old for the job but on the other hand is a centrist is not extreme is on the last notes of right people know him they a appreciate his his personality is a people person you some would say. Here's a backslapping sort of politician but much more extrovert much. More outgoing and much more ready to compromise than Trump was so all that shouting at nato summits or g seven summits all that Very bad atmosphere attention. The you know the almost talk about to break up of nato and talk about that trump wanted to undermine the quesion of political union of the european union all that will be a thing of the past because by and his administration can be expected to be very constructive to what nate to enter to you however having said that may the last sort biden will also insist on the european spending more money on their defense efforts so he will not be softer regarding nate and regarding the defense efforts of the europeans and here europe really needs to do something because that is an old complaint which goes back to the obama administration and before that wasn't actually unique to the trump administration. And the you know that they are very reluctant to spend more on defense. But i think a practice the president biden will actually be more successful in persuading them at. That would be the right thing to do as you mentioned. Joe biden's age. And i think that that's something that we must talk about because if something happens to joe biden we could be looking at a president kamala harris. And i'm wondering this is something that came up yesterday in our conversation about The role that black women played in american democracy in electing joe biden. We've seen kamala harris the first woman of color to ever sit in that role that i wonder how she will be received by world leaders. Yasmine your thoughts on that yet. It's a good question. I mean i think you know. Obviously that history-making of of her being elected the first female of vice president of colors obviously huge certainly noteworthy among a lot of the congratulations. that were received. I think it was prime minister. Narendra modi of india who actually dedicated an entire tweet just tacoma harris herself And i think the reason for that is is obvious. Obviously her indian heritage. He he sees that is is an opportunity to further strengthen the relationship between india and the us. but yeah. i mean. I don't know i would anticipate We as you say. Given president-elect biden's age that kamala harris could have a more hands on role than previous vice presidents that we've seen In in for that reason we may find that world leaders will quickly get to know come harris in a way that perhaps they didn't get to know vice presidents of the past and it seems just based on the comments that we've seen uncle mirko also an a made a comment about looking forward to meeting a kamala harris that we could expect that you know the world will be paying attention to both of them very much. Not just biden klaus What's been the reaction From china and president xi jinping so far there hasn't been much of a reaction. Xi jinping has kept quiet. We don't quite know why this speculation that perhaps xi jinping want antagonize the trump administration while it is still in office. The course and ten weeks you can do a lot of arm. And he knows that relations between china and the united states are difficult as they are that will continue to be difficult under the biden administration. So he's keeping a low profile on the social media in china have however been lots of comments. Some people really regretful that Trump is leaving because it made the united states weaker. It created a vacuum in international affairs which was appreciated by some observers in china as us believe you know it is much better to have a more stable more predictable government even if that government is perhaps more strategic in its relations with china. But they appreciate that proper possible predictability and international affairs so essentially. It's difficult to say what the leadership actually things and we will have to wait until eventually shipping and The foreign ministry in beijing will come out with a statement but they will do so nothing at the latest one set to mastic insecurity about the election. Outcome has been resolved than they of course will congratulate her joe biden and kabila harris now of course Clouds one country that we know has been watching the disarray In the united states or at least the tension in the united states has been russia. What have we heard if anything from vladimir putin and or his administration so far the gun russia's keeping a low profile putin hasn't congratulated i them and He is keeping quiet. Does not much coming out of russia but the they of course are disappointed. That trump did not win the second term. And there's been talk about disinformation campaigns. Not quite as much as two sixteen but russia did its bid to perhaps enable second trump victory and trump. However the to be quite. Frank hasn't been soft on russia. The administration perhaps not the president. Personally who always had such soft spot for putin and very confidential talks with him and no one really knows. What when on doing these talks but when you look at his policy his administration's policies towards a russia that wasn't soft all imposed over forty times a new sanctions on russia. So he the administration actually hasn't been soft on putin. But i believe that russia fears of fields that the unpredictability and the chaos and the. Let's say less focused way. of the trump administration than what could you can normally expect from an american administration that that in the end helped a russia that often the president Closed both ice and that influenced also of foreign policy. Make us in his administration like the state department. Yes maine another Interesting figure here is israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who has been a very close ally of president trump And that even translated into votes here. In the united states for the president from certain jewish orthodox communities. He congratulated joe biden and comma harris this past weekend. What do you expect to see from. Benjamin netanyahu in the near term when it comes to us. Israeli relations under a joe biden. I think this is something. That doesn't just apply to benjamin netanyahu but leeds had good relationships with president trump. I think narendra modi also falls into this category. And even figures like victor or bonham road regurgitate both of whom have also congratulated President elected biden But you know. I think he's a netanyahu in particular is a leader who obviously has a vested interest in maintaining a good. Us israel relationship irrespective of. Who's in the white house. It's no secret that obviously he benefited quite a lot. From having president trump in the white house the the moving of the us embassy to jerusalem being obviously one of those Kind of hallmark examples of a win for him That said He obviously you know. He recognizes that an admin the administration is changing. And i think he wants to shore up that relationship. But you know there's it it's been reported That the trump administration is hoping to kind of work with the israelis to sort of applies more punitive measures on tehran. Before trump leaves the white house in the form of sanctions to kind of make it more difficult for biden to return to the iran nuclear deal and try to bring that back it. This isn't to say that. Netanyahu and biden would necessarily see eye to eye on a lot of things i think we would probably see under a biden administration a return to the bit of the more traditional tone that we've known the us to take these israel Opposition to settlement expansion. That sort of thing support for a two state solution but indeed it will not be as rosy of friendship As we've seen between that and your home trump that's for sure we should also note that President trump's administration was also very close with bolsonaro of brazil. Both are considered to have really supported Populist movements and i'm wondering whether or not Desirable not who's also refrained from Congratulating harrison biden on their win and other populist movements across the world are looking at this and saying well maybe this is signals a change. Here i think it's definitely a loss for them. It's a setback. Because you know. I think particularly for leaders like bolsonaro. Who really sort of you know played on his relationship with president trump domestically I think this is a loss because you know even before particularly with populist movements even in places on like brazil where they aren't in power they could turn and look to president trump until their supporters. Look you know he's able to achieve this in the united states so we can achieve at here if know the greatest the most powerful leader in the world can do this that we can do this where we are so without question. I think it's it's a setback for them They lose that. You know that key ally in the white house But that said i think you know populous leaders like minded leaders to trump. Who could potentially take that narrative and sort of utilize it in their favor so While it is a loss for them. I don't necessarily think that it will end. Sort of their relationship trump or or will end them using trump is sort of an example to their benefit. Yes means seer. Han is a london.

Black Friday 2020 Facebook Marketing Strategies
"Today the unofficial shop five podcast we are going to discuss some indepth facebook ads strategies for Black Friday cyber Monday twenty twenty is right around the corner not sure if you've heard of black Friday yet, but certainly, you're going to walk away with a lot of ideas today on what to do and in the past we have done. Episodes in years past where we really exhaustively walked through like this is the strategy. This is what each audience is. GonNa look like got very technical with it. This year, we're going to go higher level in more strategic and we're GONNA walk through like, okay. What can we learn from last year? What's the strategy this year, and then what are twenty twenty specific? Considerations. So I think that's going to provide a lot of value for everybody and joining me to discuss it is frequent recurring guest Kurt bullock. He's founder of an e commerce marketing agency. The produce department has a ton of ECOMMERCE experience knows facebook ads backwards and forwards, and that's why for years he has been our strategic marketing partner either cycle and we still. Greatly enjoy that relationship Mr Bullock. Thank you for being here. I appreciate it. Thanks Kurt. Happy to be here. All right. So. Give me well, all right. What's The let's open up with like what is the one key takeaway you want people to have when thinking about their facebook ads for twenty twenty the one thing that if they they need this piece of advice so that they can just quit listening. Let's let's lead with value. All right. That's a hard one, but I would probably summit up as. Being prepared because this year is. All over the place, we don't exactly know what? Black. Friday is going to look like this year and so I like to go. ooh. Be prepared little dramatic. Yes. Be prepared now. I just talked like to have optionality built into what I'm doing pre. Yes. So have give yourself options so that you're not scrambling at the last minute if things go differently than you might have expected I like that. That is good advice. So we're going for A. More risk averse strategy, and one interesting thing I saw facebook group this morning. But Mark Arruda for constantly very gear said, I don't know what's going. He said I'm paraphrasing, but he basically said we don't know what's going to happen. In November and on Black Friday and got, we really don't because the election is this wildcard and the pandemic there's it is so different weird in twenty twenty and he said, so we're going to run early bird sale in at the end of October, and then that way we have at least we'd know we hedged are bats we we took our shot however you want to phrase it. So I think I like where your head's at. Yeah. I've got I've seen that strategy. A lot of people are planning on doing things early this year the one thing that you kind of are you know playing with is People are in like super high intense shopping mindset near Black Friday and so you you definitely get that benefit when you're running your ads over that time and also like if you are running your ads and your promotion too early. You know. Most. Often, you're probably still going to be doing something over black Friday as well. So going to have multiple promotions running in a short period of time. So you of have to hold those two things intention and figure out. What to do, but we do have a lot of clients already started. To promotions just to get because there's a lot of concern about getting products on time and having sold out. Yeah. So the the concerns that merchants have and customers alike have are. Are we going to be able to get our stuff at time both can the can the inventory reach the merchant in the warehouse because we don't know what we're still seeing bottlenecks in the effects of essentially losing up to ten weeks of production time in q two and. In, once or start being placed, well, all these carriers are already slammed. So what's that GonNa, look like when things hit their peak in the first week of December like what kind of delays it slowdowns are we're gonNA see so I, don't think it's going to be like a complete apocalypse, but maybe things will be be delayed a few days but the the deadlines all the ship carriers gave for this year they're essentially the same as last year the yeah they're the same as last year I was surprised to see that. I. Thought. It would be at least a little bit more conservative than what they did. But I also like this, it's no surprise to anybody. So they've now they have been There are already weeks or possibly months into hiring additional couriers staff at CETERA bright. So and certainly like work. Oh, some sub consumers already shopping it. We knew that sub consumers always did shop in October. Now they just have a really good excuse. Right. Yeah. Google did a bunch of serving recently and you know. Result said that two thirds of shoppers planned to? START, their shopping extra early this year because of those inventory issues and just fear of like delivery stuff's not gonNa make it in time. So I think justify all of that and more justifies moving their start dates up in and talking about those things in your messaging. And it also has the effect of I. Mean there's there's some real potential scarcity. Here with all of this do. You know making sure that your products are. Available on the site and you get first pick a shopper.
Fearless Principles with Jason Taylor
"So one of the cool things at text us is that we have an integration into slack called donut and what it does every month is it will randomly pair you with someone within the companies that way you get to know someone new. So as the listeners are familiar with I've only been a text us for about ten weeks at this point, but my first doughnut matchup was Jason and you know in our short time together. I've learned that Jason is actually quite fearless, which is something that I have personally struggled with as a being a developer. I have experience in hosting. I've seen databases get dropped. I've seen assets, get whites. I've seen all kinds of things happen and the thing about Jason is that he's actually quite flea fearless and the things that he does and I think it's a really valuable lesson to share. So Jason, where did you develop this philosophy from? I think it's Mostly gained through experience Being at a bunch of small startups, teach you that like you get exposure to a lot of different parts of the system and so for me early on in my career I was really scared. I was scared of breaking production like everybody else's but I realize over time like there's only a few things that like are really scary to break like you don't want to drop your database or lose data and everything else can be fixed like and usually pretty quickly, and we do that all the time and we call the bugs. and. So just kind of came to the realization that like. Oh I can. I can break, but I also fix it and so if I understand really well how it runs in production and how I can get my code out to production quickly then I can fix it and there's nothing to be scared of. I can say that I have enough experience with rails now that I can remember win in rails five I think it was that they announced the ability will actually the feature that if you try to run your test suite against production, they would stop you because usually that involves a database cleaner of some sort where you could wipe out all your production data prior to that there was absolutely nothing stopping you from just hooking up production to your test suite. So I think we've seen a lot of tools come along they really try to nudge us in the right direction because the I think you'll agree with this we just have a lot going on and it's so easy to make mistakes. Right and that's why I think a good understanding of how all the parts of your production system wire together and what things effect what is like a great Piece of knowledge to have to to feel like you can change stuff without breaking it.
Belarus: Dozens arrested as police blast protesters with water cannon
"Riot police in Belarus have deployed water cannon and stun grenades to break mouse protests in the capital. Minsk demonstrations gripped the country since Alexander Lukashenko's disputed election victory in August. But critics say the authorities are now routinely using violence to suppress political dissent will join in studio here in Zurich by monocle twenty, four security correspondent. Ben. Ben Who is also a researcher at the. Center for Security. Studies at eight here in Zurich and is an expert on Bellarusse good afternoon. Welcome to the roofing. Thanks can often and tyler. Let's start as this is something that we've been living with since August and like many things with the news agenda other stories have overtaken Belarus in away but bring us up to date on really what is happening. As we said, we've seen obviously what is seen as as a spike in violence by the government but where where do we stand right now? Indeed. This is the yesterday was the tenth Sunday of protests including election, Sunday? Exactly ten weeks ago that we've seen massive protests in better than we talking hundred thousand people or more particularly in the capital means but in other cities across the country, the thing is it's probably hasn't has hasn't been in the headlines as much as in previous weeks is that indeed, there has sadly not been any political progress that these this protest movement has achieved, the government keeps cracking down. On protests and this Sunday was yet again, more violent than previous Sundays. So we've seen disturbing videos of people being beaten up in the streets in prisons and hundreds of arrests set again including lots of journalists you mentioned that this is it's it's nationwide and but of course, obviously, the focus is probably on the capital. Are there other areas where you would say that also that there is more attention to you see greater agitation towards frontiers or anywhere else in the country? Sutton in the foreign policy realm, we've seen an escalation as in the EU and contacting you for ministers are discussing sanctions against betters on this very day we've seen this realm escalating in a sentence number of countries have not only enacted sanctions against Belarus officials. We've also seen nine countries currently pulling back staring Bassedas from as a signal of discontent. So that's certainly an escalation and that includes all of Belarus neighbors apart from Russia including, for example, Ukraine with which relations have so far been actually quite quite quite cozy, and this is certainly an escalation. Domestically, we actually shouldn't even talk about the tenth Sunday of protests which was yesterday, but maybe about the sixty four, th day of protests because we focus on these massive rallies in the capital as you said, but as local activism across the country and particularly local neighborhoods where people probably feel more safe from government repression and there's been for anywhere from concerts, small gatherings, distributing leaflets, hanging out flags, these white red white flags of the opposition that we've seen everywhere and even honking by bus drivers honking bye-bye trains. There's these many quiet signs of solidarity that Belarussians have. Given each other over these weeks. But indeed, no political progress whatsoever as someone who's spent time in the country what do you think the the political divide looks like I say political divide. I mean for the man and woman on the street are we talking about? Could you say there's a twenty thirty percent hard line know super pro Lukashenko backer of versus the rest of the country countrymen. Do you see people buy into the vision and he'd it's obviously very hard to say because we lack reliable survey data this moment but there is room about exactly these twenty to thirty percent which are still staunch supporters of Lukashenka, and that can. Be for very material reasons because they owe their positions in government jobs or the social benefits. This very government I would doubt though that these would be the people who would go out and rally in his favor because I think I've said it in the past as well about Belarussians that tend to be quite pragmatic because there is so little way to voice wants political opinion. that. They look they have the need to make ends meet and that certainly a factor. But what we can tell the shore is that there's a majority that is unhappy with the way the country is ruled and with his person in particular maybe less. So with the political system as such but certainly, with Lukashenka, he's lost all legitimacy in the eyes of majority of Belarussians. How they behave in their everyday life is certainly a different story. We we only see in the end, a minority that goes out to protest and shows their faces. Towards to authorities because obviously, they will become a target of repression and we've seen so many instances of arrests. Also of people being snatched from their own homes from the streets of from. So people are hesitating but the certainly majority that wants to see taint change and won't have any to emphasize everyone so far is peaceful apart from state security forces and that's quite remarkable given. It's been months since the protests that we haven't seen any escalation on that end if we turn to Brussels and e ministers, the discussion that they will be having today the the probably having it right now. Aside from recalling ambassadors, which is, of course, is is wonderful symbolism but I guess when we talk about potential sanctions, one would be thinking clearly economic where can the EU and well I, mean I guess. The. The first point we have to recognize as well that there is an a manufacturing base there are a number of big companies are you based companies that manufactured Belarus the not probably slapping not right at the front of or at least that made in Belarus on the front of their labels but nevertheless, you do have an economic base which is based on manufacturing what, what can e you do and how hard will the EU push on sanctions Indeed so so far we've seen sanctions against the vigil individuals to say we've seen in the past as well. So we talk ministers, we tone security heads of security forces currently not look Shaneco himself, but that may change, for example, German foreign minister, high comas also for sanctions against Lukashenko. Deed this very limited political signals that the US currently sending can send whereas economic sanctions as you indicate, that could particularly be restrictions for access to capital same as a sanctions against Russia. In certain areas those would certainly hurt the regime more particularly the. Elite that is still dependent on Lukashenko as well and the state-owned enterprises that are important factor in Belarus the problem with that, and that's really the pickle you for ministers are in first of all this hurts. European. Companies probably negligible but second, it hurts workers in Belarus themselves. People working in it in factories, they will lose their jobs, they will lose their income and the only access to capital to investment. will be left for Belarussian authorities will be. Russia. So this dependence on Russia is already. So high would only increase and that's part of the hesitation of EU officials indeed to enact such broad sanctions that will not hurt the public but also make Belarus more dependent on Russia and just before we go, you're finishing up a paper on the Belarus topic right now as well. will it be available for listeners to consume when it to hit screens? It will certainly be published anytime soon we haven't. Put pitcher with a specific institution it but it will be on Belarussian civil society, which indeed is very tricky because we've seen in a way the remake awakening of civil society these days but this decentralized nature is grassroots movement that we see is so strong. It's so convincing box decentralized nature lack of organization lack of centralized leadership is actually part of their weakness as well. So. We're looking at that how does protest move and translate into political force? Begnaud, Zog for you Bennasar, our security correspondent here in Europe

Big Ten football to resume weekend of Oct. 24
"We have major breaking news into our newsroom, and this is what we have been waiting for all morning long involved that man and that man and this conference do we have heather standing by guys lipset her break the news because it's her story let's bring heather and Paul into it. Go ahead heather the floor is yours. What is the news this morning? Komo morning sources have confirmed that the big ten is expected to announce this morning that football is back. The date is still in the air. I'm not sure if it's going to be October seventeenth or October twenty fourth but greedy I can't confirm the big ten football is coming back. Big. Ten football coming back in October for those who are just joining us had their catch everyone up on how we got here on August eleven. They announced that they will not play and they were talking about a spring season. Here we are about a month later how did we get from there to here? while. There is certainly political and public pressure but the president's the fourteen presidents and Chancellors said they would not be swayed by that the bigger topic I. Think we will hear a lot about today is going to be the changes in the medical information remember Michigan Michigan State you're talking about an epidemiologist and in infectious disease expert, right? So the medical information had to. Be buttoned up and change in order for this decision to be made I know that over the weekend they were presented with at least four new antigen tests for daily rapid testing results and also helping them with the contact tracing I. Think the question is and also going back to that date October seventeenth or twenty four. How quickly can they actually procure those tests it? Took the PAC twelve a while to get them on each campus so that could be part of the equation. There are still a lot of questions answered but Greenie to me that is is the number one is the differences in the medical information helps sway the president's the number. One question that most fans will have is, can they get a representative season in in time? To compete with the SEC and the big twelve and the ACC and try to get into the College Football playoff I literally just pulled out my calendar. If they start on October seventeenth, it's ten weeks until the College Football playoff selection special, which is set for December twenty. What is the plan as far as you know it about what they will do for a season? Well haven't confirmed the exact plan to be honest but sources have said that they would like an eight game season eight or nine game season with a conference championship game being on December nineteenth as you said to sneak it in. December twentieth selection, day, and I can tell you that if the big ten is going to be allowed back in the College Football playoff all ten s BS commissioners and Notre Dame Athletic Director Jacks Warwick would make that decision. My Gut says, yes of course they would let them in. But at the same time, you have to remember that not everybody's playing right and it's a shorter season for them to continue. So maybe it's a little bit of discussion difficult conversation but I do think at the end those commissioners will let them participate in the College Football playoff. The question is, can Ohio State Win it?

Trump to rip Biden in accepting nomination

Turbulent reality collides with GOP convention.
"Turbulent reality is clashing with these smooth steady image Republicans are attempting to paint of President Donald, trump and his leadership on the third night of the GOP convention with a potentially catastrophic hurricane bearing down on the Gulf coast wildfires, ravaging huge areas of California protests growing in Wisconsin after the shooting of a black man by police still raging corona virus pandemic, killing more than a thousand Americans a day with no apparent federal leadership adding still another controversial element the NBA postponed three playoff games after the Milwaukee, bucks refused to take the court for their game following the shooting of Twenty Nine Year Old Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin That was a few hours before vice president. Mike Pence was to speak from Baltimore's Fort Mchenry where in eighteen fourteen battle inspired the national anthem. Trump has strongly criticized athletes who neil rather than stand during the anthem in protest of racial injustice. The historical convergence of health economic environmental and social emergencies is only increasing the pressure on trump as he looks to reshape the contours of his lagging campaign against former vice president Joe Biden with Election Day just ten weeks off and early voting beginning much sooner. The GOP's convention response to those growing challenges have been uneven. The opening nights featured virtually no reference to the hurricane or wildfires covid nineteen was referred to as the China virus as xenophobic trope for a worldwide pandemic. The lineup is included speakers who have been at odds with the black lives matter movement including ace, Luis couple who brandished guns and the Kentucky Attorney General who has not yet filed charges in the death of a woman killed by police. Organizers on Tuesday had pulled another featured speaker, Angel Mom Marianne Mendoza after she directed her twists followers to a series of anti-semitic conspiratorial messages hours before her prerecorded segment was to add convention speakers also reinforcing trump's long order message warning electing Biden would lead to violence in American cities spilling into the suburbs, a message with racist tones despite the reality of these protests happening right now during trump's first term and much of the criticism from demonstrators levied at the sitting President himself at times the RNC appear to be presenting a parallel universe that few people inhabit but for those making the speeches, an idealistic patriotic habitat where the people didn't complain about their lot because they were proud Americans. Most significant all over the three nights of speeches with a literal falsehoods about the Biden campaign rather than run on their own platform. The Republicans have sought to demolish the policies of the left with propaganda, rewriting them to suit their own agenda. US health officials sparked criticism and confusion about hosting new guidelines on corona virus testing from the White House task force that run counter to what scientists say is necessary to control the pandemic. The new guidance says it's not necessary for people who have been in close contact with infected people, but don't feel sick to get tested. It was posted earlier this week on the website of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The CDC previously had advised local health departments to test people who have been within six feet of an infected person for more than fifteen minutes across the country. Public Health experts called the change bizarre. They noted that testing contacts of infected people is a core element of public health efforts to keep outbreaks in check, and it's a large percentage of infected people. The CDC has said as many as forty percent exhibit no symptoms federal officials said the new recommendation was issued by consensus of the White House virus topic force. However Dr Anthony found she the country's top infectious disease expert, and perhaps the best known task force member said, he wasn't part of the discussion that green lit the change suggesting it may have come from the President himself the American Medical Association in a statement called the change a recipe for community spread the Association of American Medical Colleges called it a step backward in fighting the pandemic. Restricting testing could be self defeating because it could skew the numbers and create a perception that rates of infection are Haya. Another explanation for the change is that Donald Trump simply wants to see case counts drop and discouraging more people from getting tested is one way to do it with the general election two months away and concern that a high number of infections might affect his chances of reelection.

Lincoln Project Releases Video Criticizing Trump's Pandemic Remarks and Well-Wishes to Ghislaine Maxwell
"I want to take a look at another factor in the campaign, and this is Republicans working against the re election of Donald Trump, and this is the latest from the Lincoln Project, let's take a look at the Lincoln projects latest AD. COVID nineteen deaths till now more than one hundred forty, one thousand thousand new deaths reported overnight. It is what it is. Forty million people have lost their jobs in ten weeks is what it is massive camouflaged federal agents detaining peaceful protesters. It is what it is. The British social is accused of conspiring with. I wish her well whatever it is I just wish it well frankly. Jennifer Mary from Donald. Trump's both yesterday to the ad tonight. something obviously unimaginable before him? President United States saying I wish her well twice about a woman accused of sex trafficking, minor jewelry four Jeffrey, Epstein. Yeah and it's a case. The Messenger being effective for getting getting under trump's skin. Think that wondering the Lincoln projects does really well. Is that Republicans are former Republicans may know what irks Republicans and say you know. I, think coming back. Keep coming back to that comment about wishing her well is joined to. It's GonNa. It's GonNa. Upset Him, and that's what. That's what he does. Their ads are designed to do that. Designed to provoke and you know with the the video with the former vice president and President Obama. It's another case of the Messenger being just the right one in. We all talk about how trump doesn't take responsibility. Kirk says, but to have a former president I dates. Who Bore so much responsibility for advice for the United? States, speaking in a casual conversation like this. I think it really has an impact people. It's not a speech. It's not a set interview. It's a conversation and also as a practitioner I really admire how well the Biden campaign is played this out a clip today. We are all talking about it. I got a ton of. Of calls from reporters today. Who wanted to talk about the Biden Obama relationship? There was an event in build build. There's more that they'll will see tomorrow, but this is what the campaigns got to figure out. How do you do this and the time of a pandemic when you don't when the BP doesn't have the opportunity to do a lot of offense and I think we'll have to see stage, but in this case manage to make it informal in warm events like this. As the president was leaving the briefing room. Today we could all hear someone or more than one reporter yelling. That name Lane Maxwell to the president That was the question he didn't want to deal with today about. Why did he wish her well yesterday? That's right and what we saw yesterday was a president who was at least on message when he was reading. Out from notes, but then when he was his notes, he was against spreading misleading information so while he's reading he saying yes, the it's going to get worse before it's better the minutes later when he doesn't have a dose in front of what he's saying is actually it's going to disappear so what we see and president trump is someone who is easily thrown off in this case. When he's answering the question, he's being fully himself, so he answered that question really in the way that he really believed. He wanted to answer it and I. Think now, of course it's causing problems for him, and maybe now he's GonNa Adjust his answer. to to find some way that will make this may smooth over a bit, but we already know what president trump thinks because we have to go with the first answer, which is the answer that he gave when he was really thinking about it, in a way that was very much leaning on his instincts, which was of course to wish her well.

Levi's to lay off hundreds of workers as revenue plunges and losses grow
"Shares of Levi's down eight percent this morning. After second quarter, sales fell more than sixty percent. There's a lot going on with Levi's Andy including some layoffs will get to those. This is one of those situations where. The online sales just could not make up for the fact. That Levi's stores were closed for roughly ten weeks yet. Chris Online sales ECOMMERCE. Business was up twenty five percent, and the actually in May the the run rate them. The may growth was eighty percent year over year, so it was some really nice acceleration. This is a quarter by the way that captured March April and May for the most part all those months are really the heart of the of the Cova pandemic. But overall revenues fell sixty percent year over year during that quarter, most of their stores were closed. For Up to ten weeks at a time there, so like you said the e commerce sales just really couldn't make up for the for the lack of of the regular retail sales. Lots of just worries about what was happening leave. They entered the the year of actually doing doing pretty pretty well. They were pretty excited that they're they're. They're a CEO chipper talked about how the the beginning of the year looked pretty positive, but then obviously they committed pandemic, really hit them, and then they ran a net loss of three, hundred and sixty, four, million, most of that was two hundred and forty, two million, due to a restructuring inventory, costs and other costs tied directly to the pandemic, so the good news is now that most of their stores North Ninety percent are. Are Now back open. However, one of the things that has many of us worried is just that the resurgence of some of the cases, the covid nineteen cases were seen around the country in the US cases spike gene on a per day level has them has leave is looking at up to forty of their stores and wondering how do we have to kind of re shut those down for the time? Being similar to what apple is, so? They suspended their share repurchase. They did pay a dividend, but they they. They are not going to pay that in the third quarter. And so, and they suspended their guidance for the year so. Tough Times leave is and other retailers Chris that came public about a year ago little over a year ago. They raised. Their money at seven dollars stock price and had a really nice day. ONE JUMP UP TO I! Think as high as twenty three, and now the stocks back down to thirteen, so we're really tough ride for Levi shareholders over the past year. And laying off somewhere in the neighborhood of fifteen percent of corporate positions, so that's one more cost saving measures. They're. They're trying to pull in terms of levers. twenty-five percent ecommerce jump, you know. Under normal circumstances that would be seen as really good, but we've seen plenty of other retailers. Come Out, andy and maybe their online sales don't make up for stores being closed, but they come a lot closer. We've seen any number of retailers, not just the the big ones like target and Walmart, but smaller niche players whether ECOMMERCE is in some cases doubling so I mean that's that's one thing that Levi's has to do an even better job of. Of over the next six to twelve months. Chris you got that right, so it's fifteen percent of their sales that's up from five percent last year, but only five percent so five percent was really ECOMMERCE, so so unlike I think so many the other companies you mentioned Walmart for example with what Doug Macmillan's been doing and target and Home Depot, and so many of these companies that are making these big investments in in the in the Omni Channel. Efforts to be able to sell directly to consumers through their channels online as well as retail whatever strategy it may be leave is obviously has a lot of work to do, and they're. They're talking all the right language now, but you know I think there's some some some hesitations doubt there. I mean the Haas family is still largest shareholder in the Levi's. Shareholder base by far. Across their their family, the on large amounts of steak, so so they have a very stable shareholder base. Maybe wither the weather this storm, but on the margin It's you know the the cost reduction. Chris you mentioned from the seven hundred positions or fifteen percent of their workforce that maybe as a savings of one hundred million per year. That's about two percent of their annual cost structure, so so it's it's meaningful in the margin I. Think, but it's not like game changer. They're really. They gotta make sure. They have a new strategy for how to sell her

"ten weeks" Discussed on Velvet's Edge
"Present. Is there evidence that supports these thoughts if there is evidence that supporting those thoughts than that's probably telling you your emotional response is appropriate for that situation if on the other hand which is probably more likely that there's not any evidence that supporting those thoughts that more than likely telling US okay? This isn't helpful for me right now. I can restructure the thoughts or practice at different coping skills to help manage this okay. We've mentioned a couple of times that you have these activities at the end of each chapter in. You really suggest that people put these into practice for a week at a time before they move onto the next chapter. What do you feel is beneficial about having an actual practice versus doing just weeks and weeks of an years and years of just talk therapy? Well I think there's a couple a couple of things The reason that I specifically like to give an activity practicing for that week is for one. Creates SOME ACCOUNTABILITY RATE? So if you're supposed to be working on this thing it's GonNa be something that okay I got a you know. I have to focus on that. They have to focus on that today. And that's one way that this is going to be a develop a routine kind of throughout your life The other thing is that we learn best by doing two ways of learning. So maybe you're reading but then also you're writing. Yeah so that's a really good way to learn whatever. The skill is for that week for. It's a really sink in. Yeah yeah that makes total sense. You just mentioned that putting things into practice because the you know this isn't GonNa go away. That's the thing about anxiety. It's similar to the pain thing like if you suffer from an anxiety disorder. The chances are you're gonNA feel anxiety again at some point in your life. You're not just going to get fixed if you do enough therapy or read this book or anything like that but it is about putting things into practice especially when things come up and you get triggered because that's the thing right like none of this is just going to go away right and that's actually one of the big things that I talk about in the book and the book does not claim to cure anxiety. Because we have not found a cure for anxiety right now. Even the best of medication just helps US MANAGE. Anxiety doesn't actually hear it so unfortunately. Yeah if you're a person who tends to be a little bit more anxious than struggles with anxiety. That's probably something that's GonNa Continue to cup. Come up in different parts of your life and will notice that there's some periods of time when like. Oh we're great things. Ideas like super low and then there's periods of our life where anxiety is really high. So yeah that's why it's good to have these skills so that you have then you practice them. You're good at them. So that when eddings had comes up again. You're like okay. I got this right. How has your anxiety changed over the years? I would say that kind of like I said sometimes I think what I hear myself. And also other people sometimes the content changes so obviously. I'm not like worried about the house burning down anymore. Things like that like the content has definitely changed But I would say most of the time. Now I'm not having long periods of anxiety anymore So there are definitely things that come up that make me feel anxious and I get that for me. It's like a a drop in my stomach and I still experience that some time unfortunately for me. I'm one of the people that if I am feeling a lot of anxiety I also get images associated with that so it's not just a physical feeling of anxiety. It's I see it happening like a movie in my brain right and so data very distressful at times but I noticed..

"So once you educate yourself you talk about the biggest key being acceptance and I think that's I mean that's the biggest key to a lot of life right but why is acceptance of just accepting reality and all in the current moment and all of those feelings. Why is that so important? Yeah that's a great question because I think when I start but that's of the book and people are kind of like what this is what I'm doing too. I thought I was GONNA be jumping all these things so I really kind of argue that probably acceptance is one of the most important skills that you can learn with your anxiety because if we can't I accept what it is that we're struggling with and dealing with it. We can't see clearly right. We tend to them like no. That's not anxiety or I'm fine or no. I don't eat anything right so if we don't I kind of acceptance all I might be struggling with anxiety and I'm actually not doing. Why don't actually start looking at the steps that we need to take in order to start managing it in a healthy way so low go ahead. Sorry no I was just GonNa say so. That's why I feel it inside of acceptance pieces so partner. Yeah why is that our nature to want to be like no fine or this is an exact like what what makes acceptance so hard. I think because we have a lot of misconceptions about what acceptance means. Kale acceptance only means that we are seeing. What's happening in this current moment and realizing that? Hey I don't have a ton of control over this right now. It just is what it is. It's neither good nor bad but when you say that to. Someone acceptance has all these mega day on terms echo with it. Like you're giving up or you're weak or what you're experiencing is okay or maybe what someone did was okay so we have. Maybe the is a negative connotations to that word acceptance that if I accept this then there's something wrong with me right when in reality what you say in the book is acceptance means accepting reality in the current moment. That's it just as that. This is what's happening but this is what's happening exactly. I think that's a big part of our society that I mean I do this. I'm very guilty of this too but we don't want to be painful right so it's hard. I think I know for me. I can only speak for myself but I want to do anything. I can to avoid pain in most cases and that's just not realistic because there are things that are going to happen in our life. If you're actually living life that are going to be painful and to try to wish it away. It's just really unrealistic. But that's kind of your whole point in this process and especially the acceptance piece that you can learn tools to help you get through those painful inevitable moments in life. Yes absolutely and it makes sense because when were being hurt or like anxiety is nervous so we feel like we're in danger in summer even if it's just perceived fear our reaction as protection right so and like to avoid Deal that way so we want to kind of like avoid that but yeah the reality is that life is not meant to be pain-free and that actually a lot of experiences in life requiring Zayed's in that anxiety largely the very healthy response to that situation right. I know for me. The hard thing is is like if you've been through something painful. Your this is what I say to myself like. Having a had enough yet like I feel like in some ways. I've had there's been situations where I'm like. Yep I'm like done with pain now. That actually produces a lot more anxiety when I'm trying to live life because it's it's just completely unrealistic so after you talk about the acceptance piece you go into mindfulness. Why is this important guy? Found this chapter very very interesting I I love mindfulness. Personally I think. Mindfulness or just a great tool and scale to learn just for our daily lives. So just practicing mindfulness once a day even when you're feeling anxious just help ground and Kinda rejuvenate us is such a thing But specifically when treating anxiety. Mindfulness is so great because for one if we can approach a situation mindfully staying in this current moment and not projecting into the future of all these terrible things that are going to happen but if we can stay mindfully can be the path and like what we need to get better through that And also like the key to mindfulness is again that I am purposely staying present in the here and now with awareness on what's going on around me and with so if you take that definition of mindfulness anxiety is the exact opposite of mindfulness rate. So when asked people typically you when you're experiencing anxiety are your thoughts past present or future oriented head most of the time I'm getting past and future right so not very often. Are we ever experiencing anything in this moment? Right now that anxieties helpful for us so if we can take that mindfulness and come back to the present moment and say okay wait. Is that thing happening right now and say oh it's not so. I'll deal with it when I get there. See you mentioned that. Mindfulness can be learned and even listening to you. Describe it right now. I was thinking. Gosh I I truly live so much in my head in a lot in the past and a lot in the future like you said. So how can we learn how to be mindful? That's a good question I think mindfulness like I said it is absolutely a practice. So it's something that when we're trying to learn I mean truthfully. When I first started learning about mindfulness I hated it. I didn't understand it. He didn't like it. I didn't understand why people were. You know trying to get me to do this But the reality res- I wasn't understanding it correctly though in my idea. It was that mindfulness I needed to have a blank mind almost a white piece of paper Ray but the reality is their mind. Doesn't really work that way. So it's not so much about having a blank mind as it is just not getting a loss in our thoughts so if a thought comes up. I acknowledge it and I'm aware of it but I allow it to pass So it might want us as definitely a practice something that you should start doing just a little bit each day and then there are different like activities. I guess you could say that could help you practice getting in that state of mind until you get to be. Maybe a little bit better where you hear. People are like meditating. Meditating for our the day I mean. Meditation is one thing I've specifically struggled with and I don't know what it is. I dread it every time goes to sit down to do it. I do also think I have a lot of judgments which talk about in the book to not have judgment on. Yourself. It's not about clearing your mind or anything like controlling the thoughts that are coming in. But just recognizing what is coming in and releasing it like you say which is a huge practice for most people when they start to learn to meditate. Yes absolutely and that a gun. Mindfulness one of the key components of mindfulness is approaching it. Risk being non judgmental. That's a big thing so like when you're sitting there in your meditating and then all of a sudden you realize even for the last minute you've been thinking about all the stuff that happened at work tomorrow on. We don't judge ourself God. I can't even meditate so terrible at this now just gently bring our mind backs our awareness of like the present current moment. Maybe that's your breath or maybe that's the feeling of your legs at you're sitting on the floor or whatever that looks like but it's just like a gentle bringing back trying to approach with without judgment. Okay well the next big portion of the book Breaks down the difference between rational and irrational thought and made me think how much is of my anxiety is actually just irrational thoughts. So how much of our anxiety are we just making up in our head? Well so I would say that for people that are struggling with true anxiety disorders and were experiencing anxiety when isn't helpful okay. Most of those stocks are irrational. Isn't helpful so there are situations in life that anxiety is the appropriate response and it actually allows us to be more successful For example this is just like a basic example. But let's say You in college or high school whatever that is have a test tomorrow and you feel anxious about that will having a little bit of that. Anxiety in that situation is probably very appropriate. Because if you're that you're going to fail you're more likely to study and do better Right okay go for something like that. Anxiety may be appropriate And now when we are experiencing anxiety were worried about what he thinks about us. I'm GONNA see tonight. That's not helpful for me right like that's not in any way making me better or making me performed better. Bats Irrational thought may got what I would call mind-reading. Okay will you also? There's a of the activity. I don't remember if it's specifically on this chapter or not but you have a chart that kind of breaks down. This is what's happening. What is the reality? Is that actually true? Like you say the Yes knows. I can't remember the exact breakdown onto chart but that that activity in and of itself just asking yourself like what part of that is true because for me. I don't even I think the you know the mindfulness. All that stuff is obviously the steps. Because you have to recognize what you're feeling but like specifically when you mentioned what someone's thinking about you like we don't know what other people are thinking so you have to actually ask yourself. Is this actually happening or is this just happening in my head absolutely? Yeah so it kind of Kind of talk about to The different cognitive distortions that people typically Agen and so sometimes to get good at recognizing that you can label it and say oh totally mind reading right now that is also another really good way to check to see if that's a rational thought because if you know you're engaging in cognitive distortion it's not a rational thought how we something that. We need to restructure But otherwise yeah you're going through and you're just you're asking yourself where these are.

"Be a meaningless rest your starters kind of play out the string kind of game for the chiefs. But it's turned out to be a game of. Significance. Very important game. Today. Are we all know playing for the division title? And also for the number one seed in the AFC, and when you look at it the last eight five AFC seeds number one have made it to the Super Bowl seventeen. New England lost sixteen New England one that's not fair to begin with fifteen Denver one Super Bowl fourteen New England one then thirteen Denver lost. I'm getting too excited about that. Because the fact is you get the number one seed, and you bring people into Arrowhead, you have a great chance to. Really advanced. But all in all it comes down. I think not only today. But as we head into the playoffs to the defense on I think everyone inside that locker room extra pump this week to you come off of two losses that really stung like they felt like punches to the gut to all of those guys. And now they have a chance there is such a great position right now to get three strikes on this opportunity. And these opportunities do not come along very often Doria. No Daniel told me that if you have to say anything in the locker room when you have this much on the line. Then you as a player do not deserve to be out there because they did not need any external motivation this week. It was all that they knew inside that locker room they need to band together. Because this game is so important for their postseason future. Obviously the chiefs have been able to score. I mean, they producing at a level that's unprecedented in the National Football League. So that's really not the question here. It's the chiefs defense can they stop the Oakland Raiders who are playing better under Jon Gruden right now. Derek Carr is finally getting a handle on John gruden's off. Offense. Yeah. He really is. And there were some thought that maybe early on the season that maybe at some point Gruden might replace him in coming years. But now as you mentioned here recently, and I think a lot of that probably has to do with Jordy Nelson and how he's been playing in December. But they feel like he's getting the little nuances of this offense as you mentioned. And you've got to disrupt him some how some way and it goes back to what I said earlier the defense the defense has to figure a lot of things out today. Well, endure at cars playing a lot of this can go two ways when you start breaking down the stats, but he's playing a lot of mistake free ball. Now, they do they are one of the worst when it comes to giving up sex. So he's holding onto the ball clearly too long. But he has ten straight games without an interceptions like three hundred twenty five straight passes. He has nineteen touchdowns eight interceptions. And what he does really well as he spreads the ball around. He's getting more comfortable with his receivers. Whether it's they're running back. Jalen, Richard or Jared cook? Or like, you mentioned KENDALL in Jordy Nelson. Even Seth Roberts is getting in there. He's got four hundred sixty three yards. This year. So he's spread the ball around and making a lot of different receivers weapons. I think a big deal for him. Also as we've seen him hurt in the past. But this is going to be his third full season that he's actually started all sixteen games. And that's big for him. And you know, they always talk about it. You're the if you're not available to play. Then it doesn't matter. How good you are much promise you have. But he's starting to show the guys on that team that he's going to show up each and every week. He hasn't thrown an interception in ten weeks, which is great news protecting the football. But Danny as you mentioned they give up a lot of sacks. And Chris Jones himself has more sacks than the Oakland Raiders combined. So there should get some pressure on him. And I think that'll really forced the mistakes that haven't been occurring. I think the big thing that you mentioned his getting pressure. You know, the chiefs second in the league in sacks fourth in the league and overall pressure hurries, they've got the most at one hundred and forty one it's a paltry amount that actually Oakland has which I think is unbelievable. And then. Fifty knockdowns as well. Which is the fourth best and they had three last week. And you'll you'll get caught up in stats. But the fact is they're doing what you need to do as a defense from a pass rush standpoint, which is get out passer and make it uncomfortable. But they have to stop the run. And then those defensive backs they've got the cover better. And again, if you rush the passer make him uncomfortable that makes your defensive backs better. Yeah. And that's a big thing about Derek Carr. Is that once you do get a hand in his face? Then he he plays a little scared. He starts moving those feet around and being uncomfortable. So between Chris Jones has got fifteen and a half sacks this year and defaulted who has twelve in our leading this team their ability to pass rush right now is good. That's one of the things that the defense can hang its hat on and say that it is towards the top of the league in that KENDALL. Yeah. Like, you mentioned you got to be able to help out that secondary to just go back to basically four or five games ago month ago when you look at that were week thirteen versus the chiefs this Oakland office, they had thirty three points. That's the second. Most that they've had this year they had four hundred and forty two yards. That was the second most they had one hundred seventy one rush yards. That was the most first downs twenty eight and then third down percentage. Seventy five percent. I mean, we've mentioned earlier you've got to get off the field and the chiefs haven't been doing the last couple of weeks. They didn't do it very well against Oakland in the first game. I feel like the one big thing not getting off the field. Well, there's two big things. I too many yards on first down. And then not getting them off. When you're on third down the third down to me has been about penalties. Just blowing up the wrong time that dump penalties that extend those drives. And then with regards to the first down missed tackles, miss tackles penalties. Here are just keys in my opinion to being able to stop any team. Well, I did have a chance to talk to like I mentioned in this week. And it was very interesting because I said those penalties are they mental because as a player a lot of times we talk about how they're just mental mistakes. Those are things that you've gotta fix, but he said, well, actually, a lot of it is physical to you because you're not making the tackles. And you're having to make up for it. When you're down there in the end zone and geyser are grabbing and trying to make desperate plays. And you just can't do that. You've got to be able to come. Up with bigger plays earlier on in the drive instead of waiting until you're down there in the red zone Intel it's down trying to make those big plays. You know that I drive last week Danny they get a third in thirteen. I believe and they give up nineteen yards for the first down. I had a chance to get him off the field and start the way they want and that was just a sign of things to come. Because last week thirty five minutes and two seconds is what the Seahawks had the ball. That is unbelievable to have the ball. Ten more minutes than your opponent. And then the week before against the chargers. The chargers had it seven more minutes. And as we all know, you can't score for the most part if you don't have the ball. Now, I understand that times. The chiefs have been on the other end of the possession total because they're scoring quickly. But that hasn't happened as of late now it hasn't and being able to control that time of possession is so big because sometimes your best offense is are your best defense is your offense and keeping Patrick Mahomes on the sideline Showtime can't work his magic. If he's not on stage. That's all it comes down to. I like the lady said that is exactly right. Today's game is brought to you by train. Find a dealer near you at train dot com.

Where that first interview happens with the border patrol people as the migrants as people are claiming asylum. Does that mean that everybody in the caravan automatically has a hearing for asylum all you have to claim asylum? And if that's the case, then you just wait, wait, wait six weeks. You wait ten weeks to months or four months. But is this can't figure out is is this a six week wait just to get to the very initial high. I want a Silom and the border patrol guy interviews you. They're waiting six weeks for that. Or have they already said, I want asylum and. Said. All right. You go back and wait, right? And I don't know if there's any law that says that asylum claims must be given in the United States. I think they must be heard, and I don't know the law to that one. Because if it turns out that the law does not specifically say that the hearings must take place in the United States, then it could easily happen in Mexico or could you have to go to Mexico, and we'll hear it, but you'll come into the United States, and then you'll leave the United States until the hearings actually had. And then, of course, ninety nine point nine percent of those are denied, we know that very difficult to get asylum. So there's ways around it.

Fibula. Okay and that's gonna stay. There but the big thing is as soon as their signs of healing and you can start weight-bearing start, functioning you're going to control the pain control the, swelling and start moving in that continuum of functional rehab and get that young man or that young person or anybody moving upright wheat varying and move into what we call triplane your.
