FL Weatherman Fails to Save Cat During Hurricane, Posts Video Instead
"Dylan Federico is the meteorologist for wi and K week TV. And they're doing the live video. I don't know, where were they planning on watching the cat drown in real time? No, it's terrible. So anyway, the guy, so he deleted the original video because he's getting crucified. And you know those cat lovers. Oh, the pitot people? But well, I think the cat lovers are more aggressive than the pita people when it comes to their cats. Yeah, you don't mess with the cat, lady. So now, so the guy deleted the original video that caused all the controversy, and then he and then he posted another video that showed how I guess inside wherever they were located and how the storm surge was like what two or three feet deep. And he talked about how he had tried to go out there and rescue the cat. When the cameras were off. Very astute viewers, though, because they realized what he posted the photo showing how high the water was getting. He was in dry clothing and his sneakers are stark white. Something doesn't add up. Something's not adding up. And I don't see any kitty cat scratches. Because I'll say this about the cats. But again, I Todd starred, and I'm humanitarian. And a kitty cat. A kitty cat terrier.

"So members of Proud Boys chapters in Wisconsin and Michigan and in small town, Ohio, started showing up at school board meetings where hot button issues like the teaching of antiracist curricula were being discussed. You know, more recently, Proud Boys have started showing up at drag queen shows at libraries because that is the new hot button culture war issue. And they are at the forefront of that on the ground. At the same time, the Proud Boys have mounted a concerted purposeful effort to run for local political offices. And the best example of that has been going on in Miami, Florida, which is Enrique terriers, hometown. Over the past several months, the Proud Boys have managed to gain a small but significant foothold on the executive committee, essentially the steering committee of the Miami dade county Republican Party organization. So these are the people who set policy for the local Republican Party in Miami dade. And it's really remarkable the extent to which they have been able to kind of lay hold to the levers of mainstream political power. And that's a purposeful thing. Terrio before his arrest had spoken about one in a run for office himself. I think he already had run for office, at least tried to at one point. So I want to talk with you a little bit about the origins of the Proud Boys. Because it dates back to Gavin mcinnes, who was one of the founders of vice, and his intention was a kind of rude male only, you know, macho, we love to fight and drink and make crude jokes. Men's club, tell us about what his original intent was. Well, it's an interesting question about what his intent was, of course. Well, he set this up. Well, no, no, but I just want to, but it's to the point here, right? It's to the point because he sets it up as a so called drinking club. We're like the elks or the shriners. We're just guys looking for some guy time. He had a podcast at that point and he would invite his buddies over to the podcast. They'd start drinking, they'd take over a bar and it was all kind of codified around this sort of male macho culture, right? But the notion that the Proud Boys were ever just a drinking club, it kind of obscured something that was a little different and a little darker. That's what I'm talking about. I feel like the intent thing. And what I'm talking about is the Proud Boys had from the beginning styled themselves as what McGinnis like to call western chauvinists, right?.

"This is fresh air, let's get back to my interview with Luke broadwater, a congressional correspondent for The New York Times, who's been writing about the investigations by the House select committee and the Justice Department into the January 6th assault on the capitol, and the months long attempts to overturn the results of the 2020 election. So in this edition case against the Proud Boys, prosecutors say that a week before the attack, one of Enrico terriers, girlfriends, and again, he was a former leader of the Proud Boys that the girlfriend gave him a document titled 1776 returns, and that that had a detailed plan to monitor and storm government buildings near the capitol on January 6th, but it didn't mention the capital itself. And there were other references in texts to and from tario referring to 1776, and one of them a text back and forth between tario and a proud boy member from North Carolina made a reference not only to 1776, but to the winter palace, what does this significance of 1776 and the winter palace in the context of these communications? Well, those are true, of course, historic references, one to the Russian Revolution and the other to the American Revolution. And so I think prosecutors saw those as demonstrating the mindset that Enrique tarrio and the Proud Boys had going into January 6th where they're talking specifically about historic events and in which there were overthrows of what people believed were authoritarian regimes. And so whether you're looking at American history or Russian history, that was the plan and the mindset of the Proud Boys headed into January 6th. So that can be used as evidence that the Proud Boys wanted to overthrow the government. Yes, and I mean, it's not just beyond the language. It's beyond what was actually in the plans where they were talking about taking over various government buildings around the capitol that day. So, you know, we'll see how the defense responds to these allegations, but it does seem like there's a plan here written down about taking over government buildings that is using language of a revolution. What does addition literally mean legally?.

Candace Owens and Charlie Discuss Amber Heard
"Four years later, now we got the Amber Heard situation, which you're going to laugh. You ready to laugh? I don't know who Amber Heard was, okay? See? I did. And such a Charlie thing to say. I'm very honest about my pop culture illiteracy. And someone said oh, she was the woman with the orange hair in Aquaman. I said that doesn't narrow it down. You know what to be fair. I don't know her as an actress. I know her as the person who dated Johnny Depp. Oh, is that right? Right. So I know her because I follow culture, but she's definitely not known for her acting abilities. Like the idea is she was a hot woman, right? Who got into positions of power and she hit the lotto when Johnny Depp fell under her spell. Under her spell. Yeah. And so the whole trial happens, apparently she liked defecated on his bed or something, which is like she did. And she blamed it on a poor innocent dog that can't defecate the size of a human being. I just want to be clear. What kind of a dog was it? It was like a little. It was a little Yorkshire terrier. Yeah, it was. It was a puppy Yorkshire. Yeah, and she said that that was his poop. And it was like, and Johnny was just like, all I can say is like, Yorkshire cherries don't defecate that size. And I was so happy about this case. And it goes back to Charlie's one of the things that you and I talk about all the time, which is that conservatives don't understand why fighting for culture is so important. And I get so annoyed with the who cares about this case. You know, we talk about the Jeffrey Epstein case. We need to talk about both, right? And we need to remember Andrew breitbart's words that politics is downstream from culture. And this case was so important for these last 5 years of women, just usurping so much power for themselves under the auspices of this bizarre movement that just declared that women don't

I think part of the problem with society is that a lot of people like our age or older grew up on these movies. That taught that might. But we have wherewithal or the something. Whatever we have that we can go. He's gone yes. There's so much of like bro. If you're alpha chicks will fuck you if you knock out the guys the girl's boyfriend she loves you so much.

And it's like could you're talking about people who voted for your and he's saying crack some skulls which is the most like bausch fucking delivery of like knock on doors crack some skulls. Then he starts saying we president the president saying we have to show them power. We have to shoot them and milley says like shooting american civilians for their right to protest he goes. I don't know shoot him in the leg or something is trump's pitch and it's like this is due to just is more oatmeal brain than anyone and watches blood sport. The four weeks the logic behind a lot of the movies that we watch is they're they're almost all black and white you just you can save your neighborhood by killing the one really bad drug dealer and then everything will be okay and guy will come and take his place. It's systemic problem that like deep deep causes and it's super complicated now like you just you just throw one guy Off the ledge of a fucking. That's the end of it. Here you see concrete factory.

Okay maybe this. There's there's some commonalities going on here. And that's that's really what i got out of this podcast. I think so far. Is that if you if. You're you know if you could talk about john matrix beyond just the twenty minutes of highlights from commando if you can go four five six seven eight nine ten hours. You know You matrix talk tailored from these movies is it. Doesn't matter if you're attractive or not or really in that good a shape if you're a enough of a tough guy cop and you walk into any room.

Doing a bad deal is not worth the aggravation. 'cause it's just like then you're stuck so i think that's really the biggest thing. Is you know i've been fortunate. I've gotten a lot of you. Know and i think i tell people all the time like you don't try and surround yourself with people that are looking out for you and try to spend the time and don't shortchange that don't don't go for the cheapest lawyer don't go surround if you have a board surround yourself with people who have different experiences and have the business and you yourself the best you want the best for the business and for you and want want to see you succeed and that not easy to find.

Yeah i mean speaking of moving forward before we move onto the fitness part of this conversation. Where did the name terrier come from so about twelve years ago. My mother got lonely when my younger brother ethan went to college so she rescued this adorable terrier. His name is mr ashby about seventeen. Now believe it or not and lives in long island and spends his days chasing after other dogs and rabbits. Mostly truth be told. He's never caught anybody or anything but he sees a rabbit. He's ready to run even at seventeen years old. But you know to me. I think the breed really conveys we. Are you know where where we try. And be quick. Smart and i'd say a tad bit aggressive. Think it was kind of the perfect name for hard money lending business and honestly i was shocked to find out that it wasn't taken because when you research At least hedge fund names. I every name is taken and Oak tree and you know all these trees and animals is already been taken. And i have plenty of friends. Who have named their funds after the streets. They live on Bay gary capital and orchard square all types of names such as that and so the find out that this dog that my mother rescued. No one really thought. That terry was a good name but we really like it. So you know that's kind of where it came from And i highly recommend it. Anyone wants a dog to get a terrier because they are awesome Very loving and very productive a little notch. but that. but that's okay you mentioned. We talked about earlier. We were talking about cycling. That's how we met this summer cycling central park. Have you always been into cycling. Is that something that you've been doing your whole life or was it really.

The tax bill gotten so large that the city was going to auction off his property. They're just like sorry. We're gonna take your property. We're going to sell it at auction. Whatever we get we get and if we get a million great. We'll take our six hundred if you the rest doesn't matter so terrier paid off the tax liens and we took a mortgage against his property the day before it was scheduled to auction. And give you a sense. I would say this property was worth somewhere between four and five million dollars At the time so if this had gone to auction the property would have sold for pennies on the dollar and whatever this gentleman got he would have gotten. It was nothing he could have done about it. It it gone through a foreclosure process and the city was just like. We're sorry you haven't paid us just too bad so we were able to. You know come in make alone. Give him some time. Give some breathing room. Let him sell this property. In an arm's length transaction in an orderly market and he got a pretty good price for it when it was all said and done and the money he saved an interest was nothing how much money you will loss. If this property had gone to auction he would have gotten you know baby again. Fifty cents on the dollar or something like that. Do you see a lot of that. In your in your experience i would say were really a special situation lenders. So we've done deals where we we've paid. What we i've got a handful of had this was this was a tax lien. We've had deals where someone was in foreclosure with a similar situation where they didn't pay another lender of the conventional bank and we were gonna come in and pay off the banking. Give them some time to fix the problem. That 'cause 'cause once you're in four closure the closes off conventional finance Another bank is not gonna come in and take that. Take that problem so once we come in get them. Current were then able to a lot of times get refinanced by conventional lender or another lender at a at a lower rate other times. They're issues that just needs to be resolved. we're making we're in the process. Hopefully tomorrow we're closing alone with a bar has what i would say. Sub optimal credit so his credit is below six hundred and you that does not eligible for conventional loan. They had another loan that was maturing. We're going to step in and we're going to make a loan and then the plan is for this person to repair their credit. Get above six fifteen. At that point they hopefully will be eligible for for for a more conventional. I belong see really help people kind of bridge between those two those two places where you believe that they're in a position where they can borrow the money but a bank wouldn't lend it to them and you get an them to that place where they can get the money from the bank and it's all business stuff.

The Big Story
Canadas vaccine rollout is slow, and very confusing. Here are some answers.
"Jordan heath rawlings. This is the big story. Sabina version miller is a clinical pharmacologist. She spends a lot of time bunking vaccine misinformation and she is the co founder of the forum miller foundation. Hello sabina also having me here again. Of course i think We're at the point where we probably need regular vaccine updates just to clear up the confusion that i Really quickly listed off in the intro. And maybe if i had to ask you Somebody who spends a ton of time talking to regular canadians. How this vaccine rollout is being perceived on the ground. What would you say. I think most people are extremely frustrated. The rollout has been abysmal so far in ontario at least i think that even across the other provinces accurate. I've heard similar concerns similar your frustrations from people from canadians all over canada. So i don't think it's going very well here. What are the biggest complaints that you hear. Maybe aside because we're gonna get into the amount of time it's taking and that kind of stuff aside from the actual length of time. What are the complaints that you hear. Yeah so i think first of all it's been You know with respect to the online or delivering. -tario was supposed to have have set up a long time ago. I mean keep in mind that we should have been up our vaccines in january which means that our online orville should have been actually ready to go in january And the in you know here we are when we opened it up to eighty nine terrier only or and every you know public health unit had to scramble to set their own hotel up on hospitals. We're taking the charge setting their own online systems in place as well whereas really we should have been ready to go in january when we were initially expecting our accents to ran up even such as you know right now is basically interior two parallel extremes. On how you can get jackson nation. Either its pharmacy with specific vaccine or through the provincial rollout and it's very confusing because our different criteria for each And on top of that you know. I can go. Vaccine sites that are being picked by. The interior of government have been inaccessible yet. His lack of parking for a lot of different sites. I'm getting a lot of things from elderly citizens who are talking about how these sites are not accessible and on top of that. We're asking the standout in the line in the bitter cold And these are Keep in mind. Frail elderly canadians who are obviously mobility challenged or quite a few of them as well in your accident. Wait in life or for several hours to get their vaccine on top of that. It seems like You know we're we're sort of cats playing the cats game. I mean this past weekend. For instance are back to nation members. Were abysmal it. Meanwhile we have over two hundred and fifty thousand vaccine doses sitting in freezers. And we know we're only going to be getting more and more this week. So what exactly are waiting for it. It's it's really has been very confusing People are frustrated. They don't know where to go when they're just waiting to get more clarity. What about in terms of the big picture you know you described ontario there which is For sure the province that has had the most challenges of as far but in terms of like overall supply percentage of all canadians getting vaccinated. It's ramping up on a national scale you know. Do we get too tied down to the daily numbers like we did. Fifty eight thousand ontario yesterday and today we only did thirty Are we roughly on track or are we falling behind as a country. So i mean. I think i would let the data on the numbers speak for themselves here but candidate tracks ninety in the world on vaccinations. So we're really far behind And if you look at our canadian overall numbers only six percent had received one does and you know. I think it was one point five percent that had received both those just fire you know and so i think in terms of the numbers that were supposed to be forget Numbers for just looking at the percentages of canadians that should be vaccinated by q. One we we have far behind what we had originated a hope to develop sonate and i think that you know we obviously had challenges with respect to have axiom supply But at the same time we have been getting more vaccines the last few weeks. Iran has not notched are dosages data. That we have right now.

Menachem, who will be joining me for conversation this evening just to let you know the title it's healing of racial is trauma and resume has served as the director of counseling services for the Tubman Family Alliance as Behavioral Health Director for African American family services. In Minneapolis as domestic violence counselor for the Wilder Foundation as certified military and family life consultant for the US Armed Forces as trauma consultant for the Minneapolis public schools and as cultural semantics consultant for the Minneapolis Police Department now wanted to read that because so many rich serving and he currently teaches workshops on cultural semantics and I think that term is incredible for audiences. African. European Americans and police officers saw. So they're oppressed in private practice and the author of my grandmother's hands, racialist trauma and the pathway to mending our hearts and bodies. And I have to say welcome. So glad to have you with us as my bigger terriers get. I'm I'm I'm really excited about this Wash a bunch of your stuff and in looking at things and and everybody is. Number of my friends found out that I was coming on your show, they were like all so so so even in shop you're you're pretty big. People were saying when I told you. So funny. And I just say, thank you I for my grandmother's hands because I have read and reread and flagged some. Cages, and I just want you to know I feel like you delivered this world a book right at the time we most needed it. So. So thank you, I appreciate that I really do. That the book came from a very personal newbury, deplace and. Hopefully people felt feel it and experience it when they're reading it and so I'm just glad it's touching people. So. Well either way you did the buck made so clear that we weren't reading it if we weren't stopping and actually coming into our body with the exercises. Before. I. Get to that because the title is such a grabber. Would you let us share? Absolutely yeah, absolutely. So so so if people read the story or read the book, there's is pretty salient story at the beginning of a book. About the relationship that I had with my grandma. honestly, my grandmother was wanted to funniest people that I that. Date at my grandmother was always be laugh and she'd always be plant jokes all at different types of stuff and so are all of us me and my two brothers both have a very had very good relationship with her and so the one particular story in the book is about how? She would so in. So some of the black people listened to this are going to culturally pick up on what to say right now other people may not. But so when I was growing up in my family, you know black families when I was coming up all heads, two TV's and we had one that was the big one. It was ornate was probably color right and then you had one that set on top of it will the reason why the ones that On top is that usually the one on the bottom never the sound would go out. So we had to win atop the sound in one at the bottom. So my grandmother was sitting there watching TV and listening three other through the other TV. So we were sitting there and what she would do with would would would be to put her legs across my thighs or across all types of my brothers. Sisters do that right in so she would sit there. And put her hand on her thigh and in. We would be sitting here watching TV together and she may do some stupid right. She may pass gas or do something start laugh do something. Right. But that's what we all set right and so when we would be sitting there would be rubbing her hands because she would always complain. Of A. Interesting thing at after she passed I would talk I was talking to my mother about my mother said, you know she never really had outlet she would always act like our hands. And so. I was rubbing her hands. One day I must've been about somewhere between seven and nine. I'm not quite sure what the ages the sobers rubbing her hands and I was comparing her hands at the time to her hands in my hands. My hands are very thin and angular my mother's hands. It's very Phantom Angler but my grandmother's hands had these. Fingers were they were thick digits. She had thick very thick fingers and in thick thick thumb, and then in the inside of her hand, it was bad. It looked like it was padded and then on the back, it looked like it was padded there. So I was rubbing her hands. And she's watching TV and I said grandma. Your. Hands kind of half joking right like why your hands so fat. Like that, and she she without even looking at me she goes upward from picking cotton. And I'm sitting here. And she must have heard a pause and she looked at. She goes boy, you ever seen a con plant. And I said no issue. So complaint got these Berkeley master wish he's talking to like energy is like a lot and I'm just sitting there looking at her and she goes got these burs in she said I started walking up and down and rose when I was four years old. And you reach your hand him that you format day was sharecropper when you reach your hand. Burs cut your fingers up right and she said when the coaches go, she said go inside your fingers they go all around and she said asked ripping a hands up as she said until your hands get them calluses, they gonNA bleed. And that's the way she was talking. And and so. That that interaction with her so I'm looking at it and issue broke. She broke an started watching TV again. And so I'm just sitting here with her hand in hand. And I'm like. I don't know what to do with that. I did not remember that story again until I started writing my grandma sands. After I had gone through my own trauma in Afghanistan after I'd done seeing things that I shouldn't sing experienced things and that story came together with all the other stuff and so that tiled the name. That's how it came up with the title of the book because it if representative both the historical intergenerational, persistent, institutional and Personal Traumas all together like yarn ball and so So it's both representative of my relationship with her in representative black people's relationship to this nation. Until

It's you'll. You'll understand this I grew up in Oklahoma and kind of went far far far far far away and And that's become more important to me in these recent years that you know that he and and then our studios in Minneapolis has been for a long time and. I've thought across the years about how the show might have been served by being on one of the coasts and. And in these last few years since two thousand sixteen. I'm I'm so glad we're in the middle of the country you know. It's Really important in life giving. So. Good Yeah So, you were the child of a Foreign Service officer. So you sound like you grew up all over the world. Well. Yes to to some degree. Yeah. Starting at age twelve. Yeah it was pivotal. Father was ambassador us. Ambassador to New Zealand. Ghana and Tunisia. Yeah we don't need to go into his rank spread. Yeah. But did you live where those places you lived in I lived in Israel? And from aged twelve to fourteen, very pivotal experience. And then New Zealand Wellington New Zealand. The university. there Victoria University so in New Zealand and then my folks were in Ghana and I spent a summer. Ana But by then I was in college and then they weren't Tunisia and I. Actually spent five months a doing a study on the emancipation of Tunisia and girls so. These French questionnaires. Second Year of Grad School at Berkeley. So. yes. So I was very. Fortunate, really to get to experience all that. Yeah. Yeah was there a religious or spiritual background to your childhood in your family or in those places? Yeah. Yeah. I would say there there was And So. Are we starting your going? Yeah. All right okay. yeah my parents were very religious, unitarian? And So religious in the sense of it being a very important thing to go to church on Sunday and. My brother and I would. Kind of. Wrestle with each other and tickle. In the back seat of her whole sudden Hudson in Silver Spring Maryland and And Go. Drive to all souls UNITARIAN church in Washington DC very important to my father especially and I didn't feel particularly religious. At that point and. But if I look back on it what. the influence of that was is that. There's An important part of one's self to express and to learn to develop and that. For. UNITARIAN inside the message I took away is that it's very big world and we have to learn to. get to know and. Empathize with. People in radically different cultures and that that's a good thing to live in a big world. I think by the time I was. Sixteen. I had that message, but I felt something missing. And I got interested in quakers who? Be Much. More. Okay Gang. So what are we going to do about it? You know view terriers were very talky. Talkers talk talk of the thinkers looked like they were kind of. interesting. They were doers, and so I would say. That that. Connection for me. when I was in high school very informal I didn't become a former quaker anything. But It led me to volunteer on weekends when I was in high school At something we called Neighbourhood House on tenth and L.. Street. was in the middle of the. the back area of Washington
Eric Edgar Cooke Is The Night Caller
"In January of Nineteen Fifty, nine, twenty, eight year old Eric Cook was in pain. His face was in fresh scratches drawing even more attention to his recognizable harelips features. If anyone asked what happened, Cook blame the scratch marks on his eldest son who was developmentally handicapped while Cook blamed his son for his injuries. The true culprit was thirty-three-year-old Pnina Berkman when Cook attacked Panini in her apartment on January twenty ninth she fought back her long manicured nails gouged his face as she tried desperately to repel. In the end, it was a fight, Pennino couldn't win. She died under living room floor after cook ran from the flat. The city of Perth Austrailia was rocked by the shocking murder and leads quickly dried up cook left now, prints and DNA technology was too rudimentary to conclusively tiny one to the blood under Pineda's nails residents in the Wembley area reported seeing Prowler in the neighborhood on nights leading up to the attack but no one could give a clear description of the man so as. Long as he kept his head down, Cook was in the clear and that's just what he did for the next six months. Cook was relatively inactive but by August he couldn't control his urges any longer be eighth. He left his wife Sally at home with their children and set off into the shadows he ended up in the affluent area of Midland's the suburb was popular with students of the nearby university making it a prime target for cook who loved to Peek in windows at potential targets. One. Such student was seventeen year old Alex Don, who was spending the night alone at her sister's apartment as Alex slept twenty nine year old cook made his way around the building. Until he found an open window, it was too small and high to be an obvious entry point, which is probably why anyone neglected to close it. But Cook wasn't deterred once he managed to scramble through the window he rifled through Alex's purse taking what little money the nursing student had. But even as experienced and quiet as cook was the teen woke up panicking cook seized something heavy, perhaps a fire poker and Hit over the head knocking her out, not wanting to wait for the girl to wake up cook left the way he came in Alex was left alone until the next morning when friends arrived in rushed to the hospital in addition to a nasty Gash above her I Alex suffered a fractured skull and was left with a severe form of epilepsy that derailed her career aspirations and would affect her for the rest of her life. Not that Eric Cook had any cares about the woman who's life he just ruined by the time Alex finally left the hospital in September he'd already moved onto a fresh. Suburb. Full of new houses and clueless victims for the prolific cat burglar a few months. Later, his new favourite haunt was the wealthy neighborhood of Brookwood flats on an early visit to one building. He stole a key from the ground floor apartment of Betty Johnston then returned to burgle the place of few times. Betty's next door neighbor was twenty, two year old daughter, Jillian brewer and terrier designer. Jillian caught cooks I on one of his visits and he took pleasure watching through the window as the young woman had sex with her fiance. But watching evidently wasn't enough Vanessa's going to take over on. The psychology here, and throughout the episode please note Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or a psychiatrist but she has done a lot of research for the show thanks Greg in a later assessment of his psychological development Dr Aaron. Samuel Ellis stated that Cook was sexually naive and afraid of women who might conceivably test his sexual adequacy. It's possible that this misguided fear or hatred of a sexually confident unmarried woman caused cooks thoughts to turn to violence. This theory aligns with cooks first murder victim Panini Berkman who had no qualms about having sex outside of wedlock and even had the gall to sleep naked.
True Mysteries of the Pacific Northwest
Knock on Wood
"Today superstitions, Merriam Webster. Dictionary defines superstition as a belief or practice resulting from ignorance fear of the unknown trust in matchy or a false conception of causation. That said many people from around the world have a belief that a particular action or event will bring on bad luck and in some cases, even death the superstition about walking or not walking under a ladder has its early roots in religion. Many Christians believe in the Holy Trinity the Father, the Son and Holy Ghost in early times. This belief made the number three sacred along with its triangle. A ladder leading up against a wall forms the shape of a triangle and walking through it would be seen as breaking the trinity, a crime scene as. Blasphemous and one that most certainly would bring that luck breaking a mirror and receiving seven years bad. Luck can be traced back to the Greeks that it was unluckier even fatal to see once own reflection in. Freudian. Psychiatry and psychoanalysis. The term narcissism denotes an excessive degree of self esteem or involvement a condition that is usually a form of emotional immaturity. Why the seven years about luck out remains of mystery and Kenya seen an owl is considered to be a bad omen. It could indicate an upcoming funeral trouble with work or more or less anything unfortunate. It is also thought that shooting the OWL or shoeing it, killing it it away after seeing it or throwing salt in the fire will help to counteract the upcoming misery in putting this story together hundreds of superstitions were discovered and defined, but very few origins were explained yet. It seemed that many superstitions have some kind of religious foundation. For example, it was once believed that the devil follows behind your left shoulder and it's just waiting for an invitation to do. Something evil on your behalf is also believed that spilling salt costitution an invitation to the devil and the throwing salt over your left shoulder will blind him some superstitions come from war three on a match. It was said that the first to light the match captures the attention of the enemy. The same matches used to light a second cigarette takes aim and when the third soldier leaks into light up the enemy fires killing the third man on the match how. About the old saying step on a crack and break your mother's back. I found this rhythm from Arthur stringers lonely o'malley published in Nineteen Zero five step on a crack you'll break your mother's back step on a line. You'll break your father spine step in a ditch mother's knows will itch step in the dirt you'll terrier father's shirt. How about knocking on wood the origins of knock on wood may never be known for certain but has given rise to several. Local variations Turkish people often pull on one ear lobe knock on wood twice to ward off a jinx Italians. Meanwhile say the phrase touch iron when trying to avoid tempting fate finally from youth in the nineteen fifties.

The Tennis Podcast
Tennis is back; James Blake discusses the challenges
"Hello. and. Welcome to the tennis podcast. It is Monday the third of August twenty, twenty and two. There is tennis actual tennis. Not, exhibition tennis competitive tennis featuring plays, we've heard of playing for ranking points and prize money. We haven't seen any of it yet. It's just been. It's just been qualifying for the weekend but at the Palermo WPA event does get underway the main draw in earnest. Later on today David's Matt I, Give You Tennis It has suddenly occurred to me that we were together when tennis was last to think. Remember when we were watching. Dubai. Was it when Jovic Matt. Watch. Kim Clijsters Return in my lounge. Yeah. That feels like a different lifetime. I. Think. I was. Kind of the last weekend of tennis, which was the Davis Cup qualifying which. Never, find run event, which is taking place to eighteen months after they. After they, qualified for it. And the even then there were. It was kind of in the background there were rumbling signs of covid nineteen. I think the airport I was at in Hungary actually had a case and they shut the airport down and but then two days later everything just shut down it's amazing how quickly it happened. Just. Tennis tennis is back and it came back with a tennis way because I think the first day of qualifying in Palermo ended gone to am in the morning. kind of like we're doing this again. Given there's no crowds to worry about a no corporate lunches to around the there is no excuse for that is the because he can stop playing at eight am. And you can play on his you can play on his many courses is as you want or need to I mean how how it is? So tennis is it like comfortingly reassuringly tennis. is finishing yeah but also stupid. We stopped terriers and your we. When you didn't go to the airport because Indian Wells was canceled. You had a fully packed suitcase. State fully packed for some time. What is status? Is still my bedroom floor it hasn't been unpacked is had items removed from I would describe it now as haw full. Because Yeah I've removed you know the old parachutes. Only items only items with an elasticated waste obviously because lockdown But yes, all items with an elasticated waste have been removed from it. And all items which you might have to wear a Nike shoe with awesome accessories they remain in the case. Keeping most of. My bedroom floor. I said I said I would leave it the like Tracy unmade beds for the duration of Tennessee's absence and I'm a woman of my word five months. Yup. There's no. Mouse. No no mouth. Remembering the mouse, the other day and thinking was that dream It was that feels like a different lifetime. The masses in the suitcase I know why inspect that regularly? Don't you don't joke about that because that is that is those are the dark thoughts 'cause my mind when I'm trying to get to sleep. So. Yes. My suitcase remains on unpacked a spouse. Now I should probably technically go to unpack it this afternoon before three PM, which is when right the main draw of Paloma starts in the UK. Literally part of the Furniture Knob? Yes. Okay. I will. I will consider that we WANNA pitch empty. I mean that will just be a pitch of an MTC case day K. Okay, sure and case with just a mouse corpse at the Boscovich. It's It's the content that everyone's waiting for you. Welcome. Seven terms of tennis. News from this week, there's been no sort of big bombshell news. The deadline of the thirty first of July has been put. On the US Open confirming. Wants him four whether or not? It was going ahead? We haven't had that sort of concrete hundred percent confirmation. From the US Open from everything we're hearing as much as the little concerned around a concern around everything we're hearing suggests that with a heck of a lot of regulations in place in and details of those those rules and regulations have been. Leaking sporadically of the last couple of weeks, it will be going ahead. I mean seems to me that the only outstanding detailed in terms of it being categoric is. The quarantine situation on reentering the you and I think I mean in some ways that is I don't know whether that might even be made easier by the fact that it sounds like Madrid isn't going to happen anymore in this is not quite such a rush to get back to to Europe in order to play the very next event.

The Indicator from Planet Money
Stocks Are Up But The Economy's Down
"There was a moment about a year and a half ago when there was this big disconnect between the stock market and the economy at that moment the economy was doing fine. It was doing really well but the stock market was tanking and to explain that disconnect. We called our old friend Josh Brown. He's the CEO of ritholtz wealth management where he advises clients on how to invest their money and his answer back then was so good that stacey and I have been thinking about ever since. Now I'm GonNa give you my favorite analogy so a woman is walked central park and she's got a dog. What's what's a very active kind of dog. Oh like a Jack Russell. Terrier some great. If you just looked at her what is she doing? She's taking normal steps. She's going in a straight line. She's walking upright at a at a moderate pace. Nothing terribly exciting. Then let your eyes pan down a little bit. Look at the dog. The dog is going crazy chasing birds. It's it's digging up clumps of mud. It's running trees. It's peeing all over the place. The dog is the stock market. The woman is the economy that's genius round. Yeah Josh's point is that the stock market and the economy usually end up in the same place. Just like the lady in her crazy dog but there are times when they do not act or look the same at all and today there is a different kind of disconnect between the stock market and the economy. Yeah I mean when the coronavirus pandemic started forcing the US economy to shut down in late February. The stock market tanked for the next month. By late March. It was down thirty four percent but then even though the economy has kept getting worse and worse the US stock market has started to recover it rebounded in a big way so that now it is only down thirteen percent from where it was in February before the recession started
In Defense of Plants Podcast
Ancient Trees: Living on the Edge
"I hadn't research so when I started to do a research program I thought I need to find a place in southern Ontario which is far away for Hudson Bay. I had to find that place that had harsh growing conditions so that I could carry on with Mike curiosity about how plants living environments is exclude most other plants and took up and eventually I found that the cliffs of the Niagara Escarpment run basically from northern New York state. All the way through a terrier over to Michigan had not only Lichens mosses and other plans but had these scruffy trees growing on edge of the cliffs. And that's why did you need to the ancient forests of scar. Of course. No one knew that they were ancient time. In fact in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight. When I started the transition for like two trees I phoned. It was indication with the Ministry of Natural Resources asking if they would be interested in sponsoring research all on the ecology of the clips of escarpment and they wrote back and said well they were happy and by wanted to waste my time studying slips because he knew they were there. I have reminded them of that almost decade by decade. Since because Would they were disparaging where those little tiny trees growing the cliffs saying to themselves? Well Hey don't count compared with normal burnt tall forests. A scruffy vegetation on the cliffs didn't count so they could equal sign. Nothing is there and ironically but twenty years later when I was trying to confirm some of the early discoveries planned to do a sabbatical trip to France and I wrote to professor while palliate and asked him if I could come in at the cliffs in France and he said it was almost it was almost He said it was happy to host new but of course all their clips are there and in fact After we did the very cursory survey of the cliffs that he had we found the oldest living plants in France amid came Figaro He became famous because he then started a big research program. Events of living trees that stirred to grow for the Romans had left France shoe and it it freaked him out and everybody else said that he was a retrospectively so happy to have been rob his credit he was happy to say that to their discredit. Ministry of Natural Resources in Ontario. Even though they rode the ancient tree hobby-horse for years they never went. Service it oh by the way. We're sorry there was something there after all. Jeez wouldn't interesting trajectory on something that like you just interested. People wrote off and I grew up in that region looking at the Niagara Escarpment. And you see these trees they are small and I'm lucky that I grew up in a time where this was starting to be realized. And when you finally see the ages on some of these things that me. My jaw hit the floor. It's it's incredible to think of something that old in such a tiny package. Because you know you see three is or something like that in someone's yard and they're huge there but they're you know a couple of decades most but what got you interested in this idea of harshness. I know you said it started with Lichens. But to think about plants in harsh landscapes I mean you see them in asphalt you see them in gravel roads. Plants can handle it. But what made you want to study that you know? I think we probably need to have a shrink as part of the because what I've learned forty years during this is your personality. This is probably infected you right now to your personality guide to research ways that you don't even realizing now maybe this may be historical revisionism. But I think when I was a kid growing up I was the tall skinny guy that was always beaten up from school. Felt like I was the underdog in I always loved the idea of supporting anything in fastened with anything that would win by getting out of the way of the means of the bullets and those were often things cryptic where the things differently so I always tried to do things that other people were doing because then I wouldn't have to bump into that bullies that I didn't play sports. 'cause I was always the last one picked. I mean so does psychological component to working on high stress organisms whether they're plants or animals. Interestingly I fought against those buildings for years after ten years of working I actually got a H- site visit from the natural sciences and Engineering Research Council. They said by the way. We don't like the fact that you're working on rocks come and if you want to. This was a big incentive to move into the trees because they said if you WanNa have continued funding from us you have to work on something more real something more important like trees or higher plants but not Rocks Cup while many Lichen colonies several thousand years old and they said no one cares boy so with that encouragement lappy. We had all these people working in Allergy and we said okay guys. They're the writings on the wall. They don't want us to work on Lichens. What else grows beside them? That might gain some respect and one of the Grad students at whether trees growing on the same rocks. I mean maybe maybe we could just switch from the trees a A year later that we discovered on some of those cliff as trees that the rings were incredibly tight. We we had no plans to studying trees. We were simply looking at the way. Human Disturbance Influence the structure of these base forests. So to what could that. We decided a good thing to calculate was productivity enough to calculate the productivity tree. You have to divide its mass by age. Okay using architectural models. We calculated massive all the trees in climbed area in that massive all the trees in inclined area and then took core samples to find out how old they were Kazan. That would give us an estimate of productivity lifetime. Cry Tippety when we did that. You've got these core samples from the cliff face trees and we couldn't see any rings at all So then sanded them up more carefully. And that's when we realized reason why we couldn't see the richness is that they were too small and at that stage we with either. These trees are putting a tree ring every time it rains it because we were like an experts. Had We know the yet you know much about the biology trees at the time so what? We have a bunch of samples and said the sent them. Ed Cook It. Lamont Doherty in your you know in Palisades. Yeah Yeah just. North of the city in Ed. Cook wrote back and said Yes. Those are ancient trees where to find and I said well I can see Toronto from where they grow the sitting right on the edge of the escarpment facing the biggest city in Ontario. And it looks like some of them have over seven hundred rings in them. Whoa and he said well you got a good one expert instill as dendrochronology in the world. And so he he and I started to collaborate with some other lab partners and we did quite a bit work after that on the dendrochronology the series of the Niger. Escarpment but it was all accident really amazing. We weren't initially curious about ancient trees at all just wanted to see if disturbance influence productivity turned up the did disturbs make it. The trees grow faster because it was competition but that became a side issue once we found For us in a place where no one expected to find one.
The Big Story
A very Canadian solution to a problem well hopefully never face
"At the heart of today's topic is a problem. That Canada will hopefully never face when you just have to look around the world to see how devastating it can be when it does happen in a muddy field outside on an army of bulldozers is breaking ground racing to build up thousand bed hospital to treat victims of the corona virus the Congo. This French train is far from the usual bags and suitcases. This high speed service has been requisitioned for medical use the makeshift hospital and the javits center now is taking patients and there is another field hospital going up this in central park. If covert nineteen spikes again and overwhelms our healthcare system. Canadian officials will have to act quickly. They will need to create a task force and develop a plan to handle the overflow. Who will put that plan together? How fast can they do it? Where will the building go? Where will the beds go where we'll the nurses dress? How does a field hospital come together while sitting on some of their desks will be a very Canadian document to help them? Figure that out because it turns out that almost every place in Canada from our biggest cities to our smallest towns as a facility that is ready and waiting to be turned into a makeshift hospital. I mean you can probably guess what that is. But I don't want to spoil the surprise. The story of how this plan came together and exactly what would need to be done to execute while. That's also very Canadian. And so right. After Claire gives us an update on cove nineteen in Canada. Today I am pleased to present a very good news story. Both because of the fact that this document exists and because so far at least it looks like it won't be needed so clear. How are we doing? Canada marked a grim milestone on Monday. Topping five thousand deaths from Kovic nineteen and most of those more than three thousand are in Quebec despite this schools in Quebec outside of the Montreal area have reopened with restrictions in place schools in Montreal are set to reopen may twenty fifth in British Columbia Phase. Two of the reopening plan will start next week if the cove nineteen situation. There remains as steady as it's been so phase two means. Some businesses will be allowed to reopen with some restrictions in place and people will be allowed to gather in groups of up to six people after the Victoria Day long weekend. Bbc's provincial health officer. Dr Bonnie Henry cautioned everyone to be patient and calm in the coming weeks. Ontario saw another day of decline in cases of covert nineteen on Monday and the province's chief medical officer of health. Dr David Williams said the province is anticipating whether or not it can begin the next phase of recovery. Despite this terrier state of emergency is expected to be extended today until June second as of Monday evening sixty nine thousand nine hundred and eighty-one cases of covert nineteen in Canada with five thousand one hundred deaths. I'm Jordan he's Rawlings. Is the big story. Kennedy Smith is the managing principal of an engineering firm called integral group and He started down a long process that led to an interesting Potentially Very Canadian solution to a problem. Kenny hi I'm doing all right thanks My first question for you is just. How did the group that began? This process come together. And what was its original intention in a weekend to work from home or a couple of weeks and I was. I was sat home one night and I just start thinking by you know. How can we respond as a design construction operations community to help what's going on in the world and and more locally within our community My wife is a is a narcis sick kids. So I also start getting a bit of fear around if if additional facilities or temperatures were needed in if they're if they're put up too quickly or a certain way it may actually create another area of risk for people working within them. So I just started thinking about you know. How can we respond for the right reasons as a community? And I reached I. I'd just can reach site to some some people in Lincoln and made an open call just to whoever was interested. Whoever was willing to put forward their own personal time adds to help right across our industry. So everything from architecture engineering fabrication construction operation. Everything just kind of put it out there. And the response was fantastic. And a lot of people responded. I think I think people were kind of looking for an opportunity to help in any way they could. And and this gave them this this platform to do it So a lot of people responded and we just kind of kicked it off and started from there really moving beyond that we we started speaking to some people on the on the user side trying to understand the actual needs of healthcare professionals the hospitals. And I'm the timelines 'cause you know we're we're used to designing and constructing sewer lengthy timeline. So you know right off the right out of the gate. They told us You know these things if their needs Would NEED TO BE IMPLEMENTED WITHIN. Can of two three weeks so a create this very very fast rapids requirement. We realized that we essentially had a week to try and pull something together with team. Yeah so then. We kicked off and started going. What was the first step? I guess In that process. And what were you considering as you sort of looked around at what might be available? It was it was quite crazy. I mean I think usually you've got some more time to really reflect and gather ideas across in many different groups in this scenario you've got a lot of people That have amazing ideas but you also have to make decisions very quickly to to try and move things forward so the first step was just kinda committing to a building type and kind of moving forward with a design and construction at a church for that building type. How many different kinds of buildings did you look at? And what was the that you had? So I think initially we. We started thinking on a large scale when you saw what was happening across the rest of the world in the UK in the United States where there were retrofit saying no major convention centers arenas airports we we. I started thinking about that and then after speaking to the healthcare user groups of Front we realized that maybe a more scalable solution would be better based on the on the needs as they came in so something that wasn't necessarily a too large scale Something that was more medium scale that we could actually implement some better measures to control the The clinical functions of space and air movement. Things like that so we first started considering large and then we started thinking what is a good can building type. On that museum scale that could be easily replicated first of all locally but an essentially anywhere in Canada we thought about hotels. There is a really good opportunity with hotels for People who couldn't self isolate People who couldn't get into amp shelters Could you know accommodate the needy and The people that needs to be helped on they could safely self isolate but in terms of a clinical function. It's Kinda hard to and I'm with the constant Clinton and maintaining the conditions in that space. So yeah we landed very quickly on arenas and then very quickly on ice arenas and you know is very Canadian response They are located all over the commune insane over Canada and the buildings themselves. Although there's there's there's variations of them the main components of these buildings don't really differ that much so you have the kind of ice arena where the WASHROOMS are entranceways Asi. Tin Area Zamboni entrances. You know these. These are all things that remain pretty consistent across any facility so if we could create a designer or sponsor runs one it could easily be replicated across any so. I think that's that's how we can have whittled a dining came to that as that building site so I think everybody listening can kind of picture either a professional hockey arena or their own local arena with the same kind of characteristics. When you're starting with that what do you then have to do? In order to convert it into something that can really help patients and also maintain safety like what does that actually look like on the ground. If you were to put this into action I mean I mean the first thing you've got to consider as what are the clinical functions you know what's it going to be used for? What do the healthcare professionals need in that space? And then can hide you separate out the building to maintain separation between kind of clean and clean supplies or supplies. 'em Hygiene tain separation between people and processing people can come in and and and leaving so we very quickly came Syria. A consensus with the team with some amazing healthcare plan ours. About how do we can chop up the space and very kind of basic terms to separate and maintain these functions so it was really using that main ice arena space to to have patients fitted and embeds comfortably? That could be checked on and could be tended to And then some of the exterior spaces could be fitted for the healthcare professionals storage of supplies and and then maintain some of the base building function so still maintaining the washroom areas and the change rooms for healthcare professionals and patients alike and then in the exterior spaces at most of these locations or surrounded by parking There's there's usually space around them so we had opportunities to also include four temporary trailers or additional spaces to store equipment and to put in additional mechanical equipment to maybe have some some temporary areas for doctors nurses to actually get some downtime and to hang out so You know we could kind of add to it like Lego blocks and as as where needed with I really doing too much to the existing infrastructure. Yeah I've taken a look just at one of the little plans you kind of sketched out yet. Looks Amazingly Just like a hockey arena only It's been transformed. Did you game out? How long that would take you and how much it would cost. And how quickly you can set it up. Because I know we've heard things from around the world of you know how quickly China has thrown up field hospitals or quickly. New York has transferred stuff. So what's the timeline in the cost there so I mean the cost is something
