Granny farming picking up ballots and putting them back to the system through sucker boxes. We were talking about this in this. Now this arrest in california shows that somebody is incentivized or at least maybe. He did this on his own. We don't know to go get ballots now. The federal bureau of investigation should be looking into those. I don't think they are right connor. They wouldn't be you know they wouldn't wanna waste their time with such important matters like this. They're much too busy. Kicking down rudy. Giuliani store the police department informed the public's man of rest august seventeenth which said thousand pieces of mail however people pointed out that the pieces of mail were mail in ballots they were completely intact and the alleged stolen mail in ballots will remain at the police. Department of property. Room is evidence. The two questions are this. How did the ballots ended up in his car. And what was his intent with the ballots and most importantly go look at his private communications. Who was giving him orders to get the ballots. Who's he paid to go scoop up ballots. Police are investigating whether the man or any under individualized specific intent to steal the ballots to conduct voter fraud. Be hard to believe if not. That's the case this guy said i've been a cop for seventeen years. Never come across vehicle over. Three hundred election ballots just sitting in the backseat.

How do you feel about Halloween?
"Do you guys feel about Halloween? I'm not a big halloween person like in general during. In general used to be my favorite holiday especially in New York City like it. It was like really my favorite holiday and then last year was like really exciting because my daughter was to last year like the first time she could like walk from door to door she doesn't remember it but my neighborhood like goes all out. So like literally like we we we left the house with our drinks and then like every single person in our neighborhood and then people from other neighborhoods like friends we just happened to run in everybody's drinking on the street and your kids are getting candy and it's just like. A love it. This year we were trying to organize a thing are your kids going to Halloween this year? So we're GONNA have my sister and my nephews over, and we're GONNA like we're sort of trying to. We're trying to figure out what we'RE GONNA. Do I think we're going to? Trick or treat in the. House behind each and maybe do a holiday craft or something so. What are you going to jail? Scottie has a great tradition tradition. This year I don't know if we are normally I. My friend memory, heart who. Loves Halloween. We started about seven years ago. She was like, do you just want to hand out candy to kids? I was like that's perfect. We put on whatever costumes we had handy and we saw salt we handed out like we sold We made a lot of money. We ended out like. I mean maybe a thousand pieces of candies. So we were like one person would run the CVS and by five more bags because it's it's actually the same neighborhood as Kurt and it's just known as a safe neighborhood with tons. It's flat, which is also in La kind of a thing like you don't want to walk up and down the hills. And so now we rent a frozen Margarita machine. And for the parents, we hand out to go cups of frozen Margaritas. Get Candy and now there's three or four of us. We decorate her yard and smoke machines and all that. But it got to the point two years ago where people are like you're the Margarita House and then. Like the dodgers are in the world series now and the dodgers are usually in the playoffs. So like the DADS will come halfway into memories householding. Margarita, watching the dodgers game behind this while we hand out candy and. It's still you know they're so nice. I, gotTa say there are so polite like it's it's awesome. So this year we might do she has sort of like the gate to her fence is like one of those old barn doors where the top to the bottom open. So we might just barn door and then we'll probably skip the MARGARITAS sadly this year just hand out bags of pre bagged candy, underrun out. I don't know kids are going to trick or treating or not because I know that. Whoever is not the? CDC whoever like someone? Some official body locally was like. They you're not allowed to trick or treat now accounting and that's what I thought too. Yeah. Yeah they're just like the. newsome Moose and was just like right. Halloween's canceled. We're just like we organized with our neighbors I. think There's GonNa be like three houses and we're going to have a bowl of candy in front of each house. Like socially distance walk the three kids from one place to the other to the other and then let them walk around outside and then it's over thirty minutes in and done
David Hume the Philosopher
"Welcome back to another episode of five minutes in Church history. On this episode. We are continuing conversation. We started last week last week. We were talking about David Hume the skeptical Scottish philosopher from the eighteenth century. We're talking about how one of his books. That was very popular in his own day. Eight volume series of books actually history of Great Britain mentions the Westminster standards, and that's an aspect of David Hume that not everybody knows about David, hume the historian well today. We'll talk about that aspect that people do know about David Hume the philosopher as we mentioned, he is known as the father or the founder of skepticism philosophical skepticism. This idea that we really can't know what we know. We can't have certainty. In what we know in one sense were plagued with doubt. Well, one of the reasons hume arrived at this was because of his understanding. Of how we understand experienced in what we can make of experience. Talking about the law of causality here, and how we know that every effect has an equal or greater than costs. This goes back in the history of philosophy back to Aristotle at David Hume question that he said. How can we know we can observe called customary relationships, but how can we know every time in every place that the law of cause and effect works? He concludes you know what we can't. All we can speak of is customary relationships well. David Hume used that to defeat many of the classical arguments for the existence of God namely the cozma logical argument. He also took on the design argument for the existence of God. This comes from one of his books later in his life dialogues, concerning natural religion, and it's set up as a dialogue with various characters in hume uses it to just walk through the arguments in from his perspective. Dismantle them when he gets to the design argument. This is what hume says. The design that we think we see in the world is not really a design. Hume says instead what we see our quote. The chance permutations of particles falling into a temporary or permanent self, sustaining order, which has the appearance of design. And quote well, let's unpack that think about it just for a moment. the human self you as a person, you are ultimately a result of particles falling by chance, and what happens to be a perfect order to allow you to function. That's what hume's argument would demand. It would be like saying. Let's take a five thousand piece puzzle. And let's just throw all of those five thousand pieces into the air. And what will happen by chance? Is that all five? Thousand of those pieces will fall into a perfect place in relationship with each other and form a completed puzzle just like the picture on the box. Well of that all I can say is I think I'm skeptical of what David who is trying to say about this world in which we live the important thing about David Hume is where he falls in the history of ideas he comes. Right in the eighteenth century. As the sciences or maturing and coming into their own in the university. At the same time theology is getting marginalized and religion is getting marginalized. Much of culture, shifting its eyes off of God at the center, and putting their eyes on man at the center, and along comes David. Hume with his epistemology, and his philosophy had a huge influence. In his day, but it had an even greater influence and the centuries to come well. That's David Hume an essayist and historian philosopher. A skeptic.

Sabatinis stylish dominance; Nadal and Federers 2006 classic
"Amy Thank you so much for your support and to everybody that bacteria kickstarter at the end of last year which enabled us to carry on all year long and produced the tennis podcast four. You hope you're enjoying it. We certainly are catherine say. Hello Catherine David. Hello Matt. You're right. Hello yes fine. Thank you good. We have had the most wonderful weekend watching old tennis matches from Rome which we are going to really have with you today from nine hundred ninety two. The story of Gabriella Sabatini is extraordinary. Run in Rome for titles in five years and also talk about how more generally she's one of those players that tends to get forgotten. I'm afraid to say including bias. I can't think of many times that we've mentioned the name Gabriella Sabatini over the last eight years of the tennis podcast. And we're going to put that right today. She also turned fifty as well over the weekend. So feels like a good time to do that. And we're going to go back to the two thousand six men's final between Roger Federer and Rafael. The Dow a dare say many more of you will remember that one and maybe some of you watched it with us over the weekend so lots to talk about before we do that. Let's just mention the news of the week. Which is that more? Tennis TOURNAMENTS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED UP until July thirty first on the ATP circuit and the events. The wheelchair events have been announced on the men's side tournaments like a start Baastad Kitzbuehl in Newport or cancel because of the corona virus. And we await to find out what will happen with the American swing in August. But I mean it doesn't sound great so we'll have to wait and see several WTI events until mid-july cancelled as well but no great surprise. I'm afraid Catherine I should say as well following on from songs that could be used for the corona era a particular mention for EJ Stanton on instagram. Who suggests don't stand so close to me from the police. Yep Yep acceptable. Yep that's yeah. I've heard that mentioned a lot of the lowest we were going for more. I don't want to diminish EJ's contribution that we were going. Ooh For more specifically songs that reference the absence of crowd right so rather than sort of general corona virus social distancing song bags which which I feel are. Is anyone else a bit over sort of Korean social distancing song just over the whole thing generally? It's a very very difficult time for cynical people with a dry sense of humor because there's a loss of well intentioned sort of sickly happiness in sort of we're all in this together in we'll come through this and have you considered crafting. You should be crofting. Oh we're GONNA come out of. This is best move well rounded people and you know people that then you bunny the. I'm so over all of that. This folks is Katharine Whitaker. Who has just shown irs her two thousand piece Jigsaw which makes two in a row that she's not together now and she's also about her fiftieth podcast to the air with two weeks worth of dailies to come during Roland Garros Peppy Catherine. Yeah but I'm not. I'm not smugly telling people if you considered podcasting it's it'll make you a better human being during these challenging times. Stephanie my better I have. You always Dunk Jigsaw. No I mean I have on occasion in over the years done the odds Dixon L- but nights definitely I. I'm not doing this to to self improve. I'm enough to pass the time. I'm just impressed. Because not cool or anything they might even be able to hear me through the wolves but my parents started kick those and they're really not very good at them. How can you be? How can you be bad at jiggles? Unless you've got bad eyesight you've done you've done about five of them in the space have been out of the night soaking souls. We're talking two thousand pieces. My parents struggling with five five hundred faces. Maybe they need help just handed over to my kids. If I was doing a jigsaw. There's no why upbeat during it because I just lose know these inch. It's IT'S GONNA sound like one of these awful peppy. People is the IT. It's it's very mindful. It gets me off my phone hawks. Group it it's very it's you can still sort of be watching the telly obviously not physique. And have something on the tally in the background. And be paying attention to it but it gets you off your phone sort of it. Concentrates the mind. Oh God I hate myself move on. Can Multitask is what you're saying? Awesome specifically cannot multitask. So I would say it's a nonstarter. Meanwhile folks we have been putting photos on social media channels of ourselves in one thousand nine hundred ninety two where possible because Matt didn't exist nine hundred ninety two and two thousand and six respectively Matt has created quashed a picture of a tennis magazine on which he as a child prodigy is on the front cover wielding his racket. Like Richard Gasquet aged nine. Except there's no strings in the racquet That's the away so walk away. A few people were taken in by it. It's my absolute probably favorite thing. That's ever happened to me. That people actually think I was on the cover of Tennis magazine. Age Ten it was just at Wimbledon in the. Lta Tent way you could go up and have your have your photo taken in front of a green screen. And they were then imprinted onto ace tennis magazine. And yes they put up there alongside the words the not a the future Wimbledon champion going to all future Wimbledon. Men's having experienced his game. I can tell you what could have happened to a young Merrin Chile church in appearance. Yeah not sure what to say about that. Well he he opened so I'd go with that. Yeah no great. I'm in favor of all. Comparisons to professionals plays a singular. Us Open title is not all Wimbledon. Titles there is it still in underachievement relative. I don't think we're actually doing any matches from two thousand seven for tennis relived. Who knows how long ten is live? We'll be going on. We may have to come to two thousand and seven at some point but I actually went back the following year and appeared on the front cover again. Let's just put it up as a sort of extra what the people working uniform and that one.

What Are The World's Biggest, Baddest Jigsaw Puzzles?
"Even before. It became a popular way to while away the hours days and weeks during isolation putting together. Jigsaw Puzzles was a favourite family activity. But did you know that? Jigsaw Puzzles have their origin in education. Sir John Spills Berry an English engraver and map maker in the mid. Seventeen hundred is credited with creating the first jigsaw puzzle in seventeen seventy six by attaching a map of the world to a piece of wood then cutting the country's out teachers used the maps to teach geography to their students and a recreational activity was born spills berry would hardly recognize his creation today in the early part of the twentieth century. Jigsaw Puzzles were used as marketing tools often given away or sold for mere pennies today companies. Still use puzzles for creative marketing. Take Kodak for instance. It's selling what it. Claims is the quote world largest jigsaw puzzle. We HAVE TO ADMIT. This thing is pretty huge. The fifty one thousand three hundred piece puzzle features twenty-seven injuries from around the world and when completed measures twenty eight point five feet by six point. Two five feet. That's eight point six meters by one point nine meters and this beast costs more than four hundred dollars but all due respect to the Kodak Jigsaw puzzle. The world's largest jigsaw puzzle by surface area. According to Guinness World Records was put together in Dubai in July of twenty eighteen. The puzzle was an honor of the year of Ziyad a year long tribute to the founding father of the United Arab Emirates. The late Shahid there are more than twelve thousand pieces in the puzzle which was an image of Zayed the official record size measured sixty five thousand nine hundred and five point one seven square feet which is six thousand one hundred twenty two point six eight square meters putting together. Jigsaw puzzles is a Greek group activity but one thousand six hundred students of the University of Economics Ad Hoc Human City in Vietnam took it to the next level. When they completed the jigsaw puzzle with the most pieces on record five hundred fifty one thousand two hundred and thirty two to be exact when it was finished the puzzle measured just over. Forty eight by seventy six feet about fourteen by twenty three meters. It took the students seventeen hours to create the massive puzzle which featured a lotus flower with six petals. But what about the hardest jigsaw puzzle? Ever it contains only nine pieces and it's called the puzzle nine it was designed by Asaka. It includes a small board. The nine pieces include right angles and curved edges. That fit together in several combinations. Think Tetris but way harder. The challenge is getting the last piece to fit. It's nearly impossible to fit all the pieces on the board. It took Chris Ramsey a magician video creator and master puzzle or two hours nine minutes to solve the ice nine and by his own description. He was completely exhausted. By the end of the experience. You Sokha created another equally. Difficult puzzle called the Jigsaw Puzzle. Twenty nine the challenge here is to fit twenty nine pieces into a five by five inch. That's twelve by twelve centimeter trae. It comes with five corner pieces. Just let that sink in. Then there's the largest hand cut wooden jigsaw puzzle Guinness record held by Dave Edmunds England. Who created a forty thousand seven hundred sixty three piece puzzle celebrating the Queen's Diamond Jubilee the puzzle which featured thirty-three Images of Jubilee celebrations was twenty by eight feet? That's six by two and a half meters. When completed though it collapsed soon after Evans completed it took him and force. More than sixteen days to rebuild the puzzle and move at Sandringham where it went on display and was confirmed as the Guinness World record holder. We spoke by email with Caitlin vesper records manager with Guinness World Records North America. She said one of the main criteria for all Guinness World Records titles is that they must be breakable. Every record titled S- monitored is open to being challenged which allows for all kinds of record breaking opportunities all over the world. The Guinness record for most Jigsaw puzzle pieces tattooed on the human body belongs to the aptly named enigma. Sometimes known as Paul Laurence. Who'S A sideshow performer? Actor musician originally from Seattle in two thousand eleven enigmas set the record for having two thousand one hundred twenty three puzzle pieces tattooed on his body from head to toe in no word on whether anyone comes close to second but many puzzle records are held by companies such as the record for the largest spherical jigsaw puzzle. It measured fifteen point seven feet. That's four point. Seven seven meters in circumference and it was made by unit industrial limited in Hong Kong and featured scene from Winnie the Pooh vesper said brands and businesses. Come to US looking to harness the power of record-breaking to commemorate anniversaries and celebrations or to highlight the launch of a new product. Whole communities can come together to attempt to record to a like in March of two thousand nineteen when more than one thousand seven hundred people formed the largest human jigsaw puzzle piece on record a I. The record raised awareness for autism spectrum disorder. The puzzle pieces the symbol for the autismspeaks organization. Vesper explained each Guinness World. Records title has a set of guidelines. That must be followed. The record for the largest human jigsaw puzzle piece is a great example to highlight. This is considered one of our largest human image categories and the idea is to have a group of people gathered together to form a recognizable image. We define a jigsaw puzzle piece as an oddly shaped interlocking and Tessa leading piece designed to be part of a larger picture. The human image to be created would need to be instantly recognizable as a puzzle piece and not an entire puzzle. This record title can be broken if another group creates same image with a larger group of people. Anybody up for the challenge.

Rise of the Moa
"To introduce today's episode. I thought maybe we should begin by reading a poem. Robert Are you game. I'm game for a little little poetry. In fact it's not just poetry. It's Moitri I did not make that joke in my head yet. But maybe because I'm not as perverse as you. This is by the New Zealand. Poet Allen Kerr now's was originally published in nineteen forty nine and it's called the skeleton of the Great Moa in Canterbury Museum Christchurch. The skeleton of the MOA on iron crutches broods over no great waste a private swamp was where this tree grew feathers once that hatches it's dusty clutch and guards them from the damp interesting failure to adapt on islands taller. But not more fallen than I. Who come bone to his bone. Peculiarly New Zealand's the eyes of children flicker round this tomb under the skylights wonder at the huge egg found in a thousand pieces piece together but with less patience than the bones that Doug in time deep shelter against the ocean weather not I some child. Born in a marvellous year will learn the trick of Standing Upright here. You can find that poem by the way. In the nineteen seventy-nine Anthology an anthology of Twentieth Century New Zealand poetry and I really loved the cadence of that poem and also Feel like it. Effectively captures the the weird beauty of these reassembled skeleton remains one sees of the mighty? Moa We just did Marianne Moore in the paper Nautilus. This is another poem like that. I love a good poem. That genuinely ponders biology Like this deals with the evolutionary adaptation of the MOA the flightless birds of New Zealand And the idea of learning the trick of Standing Upright. Yeah now this is going to be a fun. Couple of episodes. I'm really excited about these episodes I think the the Moa one of the things. That's really keeping me going right now to research. Read about the Moa Envision. The more no matter what we`re. I don't know where you are out there as you're listening to this where you are in your previous understanding of the. Moa and other flightless birds But this is a this is a wonderful and weird story that has a number a number of connections to things. We've talked about in the past but also some new angles. We're going to be talking about evolution. We're GONNA be talking about First contact between man and beast. It's it's GonNa be a fun ride and there's no better place to start a fun ride than in New Zealand. The land of avian decadence that's right and the place where where the Mammal is truly debase. That's right because you know. Obviously the rise of mammals is one of evolution's most celebrated victory stories right because in part because we are of course mammals ourselves. And there's perhaps a sense of of the gods and the primordial titans when we consider the age of the dinosaurs that came before us in our own. Mammalian Age That we have ascended in now. Well Yeah I mean. There's very much a case of When you look at the Cretaceous Paleocene extinction event that caused the demise of the non. Avian dinosaurs It's quite clear that their loss was our gain. Yes but it wasn't only our gain the gain of of birds and we often neglect the just the exceptional dominance of birds for this as they the the legacy of of the dinosaur and then they they remain highly successful in widespread to this day. They remain masters of the Air. Frequent masters water and sometimes masters of the land is well now. Why would birds be the masters of the land like they've got the air that seems so much better than the land? Why even bother with the land? Well of course the obvious answer there is that is that to be. A master of the of the air requires a great deal of energy. And if you don't have to fly around you quickly find reasons. Not Too narrowly speaking. Of course we'll so if we're talking about mammals and avian dinosaurs or birds. Why exactly was it that? The loss of the dinosaurs was the gain of these other glades. Well because suddenly you have all of these These these niches in the In in the in the environment that open up this suddenly a bird can can occupy various creatures. Have the ability to occupy mammals included. But this is where we see the emergence of a number of these different flightless birds. This is where we see the emergence of terror birds in the demon ducks. And we'll get into some more examples of flightless birds as we go but yet to be sure we still have some amazing flightless. Land Birds with us today and some of them are are quite enormous. The largest of course is the ostrich. There are two species remaining. There was a third the Asian ostrich that went extinct roughly six thousand years ago. Yeah the two extant species the common ostrich in the Somali ostrich and they're both native to Africa. Yeah and I. Sometimes I feel like we sometimes overlook. How cool ostriches are. I find that it zoos. They for one thing. It's zoo habitat in an and a fenced in area. But then sometimes the ostriches in there with a giraffe seems particularly unfair because the draft of course is the is the tallest extent mammal that we have and It feels kind of like a dirty trick to showcase the world's the world's tallest extent bird with the tallest mammal which towers over right. It's like I'm trying to show off my muscles but then you put me next to a gorilla. Yeah but but we have some other wonderful examples of flightless birds elsewhere for instance. We have emus which are very fascinating to get a chance to look at an email. Just watching e-mu as it goes about its business It's it's remarkable the cassowaries one of my favorites mind to there's a castleberry here at the Atlanta Zoo. Yes see soul the the cast where who we've talked to on the show before with with a friend Jason Ward here in down about Cecil the cassowaries who her member Jason telling us that it's dengue is very like fragrant smells of fruit. Even though it is I mean not to demonize animals but when you get up close to it it is horrifying beast like it's beautiful. It's colors are beautiful. It has the blue and the red and the black feathers. It's gorgeous animal but also if you look at its foot it's foot. Looks like a puppet from a monster movie it is. It is just a killing things. Got These clause in the scaly scabby skin That's a tongue twister. But you look at a castle up close some time if you just WanNa be terrified and audit nature indeed. Yeah they they can. They can prove quite deadly. If you you know the the human comes into close contact with them and their they'd be begin engaging defensive behavior. Oh Yeah don't try to look at their feet up close if there is not a barrier between you. Yeah of course. We have other Flightless bird to consider amazing ones. Of course it's the Kiwi of New Zealand the The Nocturnal Ground Bird. All of these birds are what we call rat. Tights diverse group of flightless birds that were widespread across the scattered fragments of the supercontinent Gondwana. In their Donald Dominance waned over time certainly with the the rise of Homo sapiens. We still have all these various examples that still remain today. And you find you find large flightless. Birds will actually large and small flightless birds everywhere from New Zealand to South America. Without even getting into the the the obvious example of just other flightless birds. There's also the pink win. Yeah of course But wh this raises the question. Why do we have flightless birds? All over the place like this well In the one thousand nine hundred ninety s there was a wonderfully titled Theory Moas Arc. Which would you assume that all of these rats descended from a common ancestor? So in other words the the idea here is that a a flighted ancestor became flightless on Gondwana and then as supercontinent split this one flightless ancestor diverged. Into all these different flightless species okay. So you get one instance of these birds descending from an ancestor and becoming flightless and then the flightless one goes all over the place. And then there's continental drift right to supercontinent splits up and the flightless descendants of that one ancestor all go off into different places and evolve in different directions and they become everything from the ostrich to the Kiwi to the MOA right but one of the the issues with this This idea is that this would mean we'd expect something we'd expect say in New Zealand. Expect the MOA in the Kiwi to be closely related to each other We'd expect that Any any of these rats that live close together would also be closely related but subsequent DNA studies have revealed that this was not the case instead of Moas Arc. The model seems to be one of numerous cases of flighted to flightless evolution around the world so again convergent evolution This repeated instance of a flighted bird evolving into a bird. That doesn't fly which seemed so strange of a of a choice for evolution to make. I mean not to personify it too much. But but what is the advantage there I think we alluded to this earlier. One of the main theories about this is that it's an energy advantage. If a bird doesn't need to fly than it doesn't need to make huge pectoral muscles flapping wings that can get it into the air and if it doesn't need to make those big muscles it can spend that energy on something else. Sorry can just survive on less
Talking to Your Kids About Coronavirus with Dr. Angharad Rudkin
"As we're recording this the Korean various things so kicking off. We've just been told that we should all be staying indoors a bit more and stuff like that and no see kids pick up information. They're getting hand sanitizer at school. All this stuff. How do we talk to a child who has worries about Corona here? It depends on their age and I guess the blanket advice is find out what their worries are a what. They're understanding his kids. They were reason. Understanding of it is can be very different to yours which is going to be very different to your other child because they've different ages and stuff like that so find out. What would you know about Korean virus? What is it that you're worried about? What will the children are speaking to actually the not massively worried about it really? I think that will change when we get into sort of all isolation stuff in the day to day life changes but at the moment allow them on. Because it's not hitting kids no. I'm not seeing kids being really poorly so But for example working with people they see you know obsessive compulsive disorder where the do an awful lot handwashing because of contamination is all of that tattoo shift recently because actually the contamination. Fear is quite realistic. Whereas usually you're able to say what the chances go to. I'd say what worries you don't over do the Info because then it rains just can't take it all in our brains. Come and take it all in this and once. They want to stop talking. Stop talking about it. I think as parents we want to say. Oh and actually this is one more thing. And if they've had enough of it talking about it let them walk away and going to you know. Go Wash your hands. Wash your hands hands face and you know. Let's all enjoy doing. Our thousand piece Jigsaw for the next four months thinking about that. Delivery services are available. Whatever you can keep delivering books games. My father-in-law is literally stacking stocking up on jigsaw puzzles. He's hit that's his response to crisis. Are I love it? That's how that's got writing Richard One. I've 'cause constable on the table a leader. I'm all for that. What about grownups? Then to how do we? How do we deal with our own worries? Because obviously it's very I've found? I have to look a bit less than my phone because even like social media is just everyone panicking. I feel myself. Go into the whole you go and it really is only aggregates of backout. Advises don't really. We know what we need to know. Now we know it's highly contagious. But achy most of his party can be alright so beyond that I reckon can use their stuff because I think we can deal with. Our levels is only going to ramp up so much because the more emotional we get the less logical. We get so actually once. We'VE SEEN THE HEADLINE. You're going to lose a loved one year anxieties sky high. You're not going to be able to logically then look through the numbers and think our chances are. It'll be fine so I would say. Protect yourselves because the more worried we are the more word our children will be and we'd expend everything's sixty boo but we also need to let them know NHL. We're going to be fine. This is just a bit of a change to our normal life. You know what we've got. Lots of lovely tire together. We'll be able to their thousand piece. Jigsaw and actually spend time together because I think I was this earlier but I feel like my brain I have the kind of like nights information like snow all the facts and then I can work out a night. Fine said my brain is like more information on the radio on your phone again. Yes rain someone awesome. What is they give you then also scientist? Dr Like to get more facts. I think I've tried to think about it and I think I'm really doing is. My brain really wants the fat that says. Oh it's all fine and done some news just in we've done an experiment and it's augured.

How do I create an MVP for my physical product?
"So in today's Wednesday Lance Asks. How do I create an MVP for my physical product? The good news is Lance and everybody listening is that this is the easiest time ever to create physical products. Whether it's just a prototype or you're going to be producing on mass. There are so many options and they're so cost effective. I wish I had these options when I was getting my physical product a decade ago. Nevertheless I'm going to share with you your options now and some of the things I did that really had lowered the costs allowed me to get a prototype get an MVP in my hands quickly and efficiently. The first thing I want to mention is of course you can do this overseas. Of course the first place people think of as China and we're GonNa talk about that as well as an option big option but I want to encourage you if you can. Your first option should be to try to create this prototype locally somewhere. You can actually physically. You might be surprised in your local city in the capital of where you live. There will be manufacturers to actually create these things depending on the product itself whether it's electronic or clothing item or an accessory like an iphone case many people are actually bringing manufacturing locally. Because it's less expensive when you factor in a lot of things especially when it comes to mass production. We're talking about. You're going to SAVE MONEY ON TAXES. You're going to save money on shipping. You'RE GONNA save money on a lot of things but most importantly you're going to have direct communication with the person that's producing your product. You could touch and feel it and get to know the people behind the craftsmanship of your product. So my first suggestion is to get this done locally. Now someplace it'll be easier to find for trying to produce clothing of this plenty of places that will create custom clothing for you. Even just a prototype you can even just go down the street and go to a local tailor We're talking that simple like you're going to pay a little bit more to get custom-tailored whether it's a hat or a drescher or a pair of pants you're gonNA spend a premium for maybe five pieces that you could sell. But it's totally doable. And it's local now. There are other companies that do this for you. Print shops clothing shops. And you can find them on Google pretty easily for smaller less complex products accessories and clothing. This should be quite easy now. If you're looking to do something a little bit more complex like electronics. Even something like a battery or a Some sort of memory for the computer or something like that. This still can be done locally but it may be harder to find online. A lot of these manufacturers are not so simple defined might have to go old school and go to the Yellow Pages. You might have to do a roundabout search on Google like trying to find a list of manufacturers in your local area in your state in your country where you're GonNa go through the list and try to find one that would fit your needs now. Going locally will always be time efficient. You'll also not have to worry about any kind of miscommunication or a language barrier. This is true. 'cause I've done a lot of foreign manufacturing and this is a challenge. You're going to have to get through that if you go Foreign or if you go overseas so so if you can get it done locally. I highly recommend that. Because you're GONNA be able to get the product quickly possible sell to other people Whether it's in person at a flea market at a You know local market or even on your website. Now if you're looking to do this overseas because you can't find a locally there are options The number one option when it comes to. This is Alibaba Alibaba website. You can check out They have another vertical alibaba express and this premium products that you can kind of buy and sell chronic arbitrage but Alibaba will actually have all the manufacturers there now. The issue with Alibaba is sometimes. These factories have a minimum order or a minimum spent. So you're going to have to do some searching and there's a lot of companies a lot of manufacturers out. There will produce anything from Pencil to a mechanical keyboard to You know computer screens. They can do anything okay. This is where everything is made. Now the reason why people go to Ali Baba's because they run on a review system and you can really take a look at who really gets great reviews and actually delivers is going to take longer. Because it's coming from China and there's GonNa be some lead time and all that kind of stuff but if you have time it's worth exploring especially if you can get it at a minimum spend or minimum quantity. I was selling some accessories with my clothing. Line like cufflinks and I got a done through Alibaba as a prototype and I actually Had Order Lisa hundred pieces. Okay so I spent I think a believe three hundred dollars to get this done plus shipping and all that kind of stuff but I had one hundred pieces. I sold it on the website As a limited time. It's something that we're trying out. And Luckily we sold out really quickly like within a month and I immediately saw what sold what didn't what really sold quickly. Which designs and now I can go back to the drawing board and get a thousand pieces ten thousand pieces and I know price point I can sell a four so I can kind of profit can make to obviously when I order more profit margins are going to be higher because when I ordered an. Mvp from Alibaba. It's going to be really really expensive. Compared to the mass production now you might be surprised. It is actually quite afford Weiss expensive compared to the mass production. Because of course the more units you By the better deal you're GONNA get now. What's great about Alibaba is that you actually can go back and forth on email and even some are willing to get on a phone call Some of the bigger manufacturers have people that can speak English. It's not great but it's it's doable. Right you're GONNA be able to communicate on the phone but Overall their email response is pretty good. And it's pretty standard. You Send Him Designs. You send them specs you tell them exactly what you want and they send you prototype examples this even show you pictures of the first ones they produce and then they send it over even with tracking and everything so. I recommend Alibaba. Because I've used this several times. It's an absolute giant in China. And it's for good reason because they've built a great reliable network of manufacturers. I actually know people that have produced electronics rally Baba computer accessories and sold them in their local kiosk in their local mall and made a pretty good profit. The key here is make sure you read the reviews thoroughly. There's a lot of reviews if you go to a very popular manufacturer. Alibaba you'll see like literally fifty thousand reviews and read every single one that will be applied to your business or your type products so you can understand what to expect it's all back speculations when you're doing business understand what you're GONNA get an understand how to plan around. It's you know when it's GonNa come and what it's GonNa look like and what to charge and all that kind of stuff. So if you can't produce locally. I highly recommend Alibaba. Really really is a great option. If you have some time and you can make sure you can communicate back and forth and get the specs right of your MVP.

Syria: Catastrophe looms in Idlib if violence escalates, says WFP spokeswoman
"This is Matt wells from you and news, if fighting around the rebel-held Syrian and clay of Italy escalates with three hundred thousand forced to flee their homes, a humanitarian catastrophe could ensue that's according to World Food, Programme on WFP spokesperson Moawad, who warns an interview with UN news that depression, and anger is now wide spread across the region. The majority of displaced on moving towards the northern border with Turkey where he monetary in camps, stretched beyond capacity and families are living on top of each other MS wide spoke by phone from Syria to my kube of UN news. Arbed service has been ongoing. This part of independent northern present Hannah, and they had let you tremendous number of people fleeing their homes. You know, that they're invert three hundred thousand people who've left their homes running looking for safety, and this has resulted in a tremendous pressure on our partners in the ground to deliver the assistance, and other sorts of system, you been sleeping and, you know, they're the escalating in violence continue, going to be looking at the catastrophe unfolding in the northwest, we have been reaching two hundred thousand people of the three hundred thousand four seventy displayed emergency food assistance. But in addition to that he had scaled up in our monthly regular deliveries of food, ration now we're going to be reaching each hundred and twenty three thousand people here. Well, across border off relation and just keep the food security situation impacts viewing this difficult. I know that you have partners on the ground who can go into live, WBZ did not go personally in, but from your partners on the ground, what do people, tell them what I mean? How can you describe their situation? There needs our partner garner in close contact with us, and they're the ones who are twenty days delivering food assistance on the frontlines, then noon is depressed and angry at the same time, people are competitive tires, every time that they've, they come to think that things had nothing down. They rebuilt their lives more affinities as their difficulty in finding stability of the fairly have lost everything. Because they have been placed more than one until every time there's days, mental. You're only able to carry with she's there. So people were kind of lost all their belonging. You know that some families that have been selling their Donovan, get became Sheng from the southern parts of the northern can. And those Leach the camp, they're considered what he because they've come out. However, they're facing extremely difficult and living conditions in the campus are really on the grin and one of our partners, telling us that there is no space tune that up. Ten ten census conveys I've had to either day out doors or join other families in detention. There's quite a number ten each one half of the full family, can you imagine that they're conditioned? They're very tenuous FU people who've already scape violence. And now they have to be moving basically on top of each other. What does the scale of destruction in its impact on civilians, particularly vulnerable people our? They're selling a lot of their infrastructure has been badly damaged in, in northern hammer and further in it. And this is very concerning. In addition to that we've been extremely concerned by. Gear destruction of farmland, if I'm going to be very precious in Syria and machine that there's quite a number of acres that has caught fire and others. All across have have been destroyed.

Latest airport ransomware attack highlights how cybercriminals hold data hostage
"This past week Cleveland's airport began to recover from a computer attack that took down its flight information, baggage displays and it's Email. The FBI says it was another ransomware attack on a sensitive government network, ransomware locks up victims files until ransom is paid more. And more critical public service networks are the targets before Cleveland. The city governments of Newark, Atlanta, and Sarasota were hit and San Francisco's transit authority. The Colorado department of transportation and the port of San Diego today. Twenty six percent of cities and counties say they fend off an attack on their networks every hour, perhaps even worse. Dozens of hospitals have been held hostage across the country. In January twenty eight teen the night shift at Hancock regional hospital watched its computers crash with deepest apologies. The one hundred bed facility in the suburbs. Of indianapolis. Got it CEO Steve long out of bed. We had never been through this before. And it's something that I read in the journals. And I say, oh, those poor folks. I'm glad that's never going to happen to us. But when you come in, and you see that the files on your computer have been renamed in all of the files were renamed either. We apologize for files or were sorry. And there was a moment when I thought, well, maybe they're not so bad. They said they were sorry. But in fact, they had encrypted every file that we had on our computers and on the network. Well, the as we've said still had long told nine one one to divert emergency patients to a hospital twenty miles away. His staff turned to pen and paper. Nothing electron. It could be trusted. This is a ransomware. So this is a virus that has gotten. To the computer system. Would it have the ability to jump to a piece of clinical equipment could have jumped to an IV pump could have jumped to a ventilator we needed a little time just to make sure about that time was a luxury not offered in the ransom demand. Your network has been encrypted if you would like to purchase the decryption keys you have seven days to do. So or your network vials? We'll be permanently deleted. And then it gave us the the amount that we would need to pay to get that back and that came to about fifty five thousand dollars that was the same price demanded of the city of Leeds Alabama three weeks after Hancock hospital near David Miller was surprised his town of twelve thousand would be a target not much to notice in. It's at least not since Charles Barkley graduated from the high school. I didn't know that this Mauer attack was actually a ransomware attack soon as we've found that out that took it to the different level. How do you make? Well, it was. Going to cost us money white the hospital. The city of Leeds was cast back into the age of paper. No, Email, no access to its personnel files or financial systems can all companies and local governments expect to be attacked. I think everyone should expect to be attacked the FBI's might Chris man says cyber-crooks, no governments in hospitals are likely to pay because they can't afford not to until his recent promotion Christmas was in charge of the FBI's cybercrime unit. You're waiting for the day that somebody says we have the nine one one system held hostage in a major city, and we need ten million dollars today. I hope that day never comes. But I think we should prepare for that possibility. Crispin says in twenty seventeen seventeen hundred six cesspool rent somewhere attacks were reported. But he figures that's less than half more. Most businesses. He says would rather pay in admit they were hacked on the wear of one ransomware variant that affected all fifty states that had some thirty million dollars in losses and over six million dollars in ransom payments. I would tell you that the losses are very significant and easily approach one hundred million dollars or more just in the United States that ransomware variant. He's talking about is the one that held handcock hospital hostage. It's cold Samson. After one of its file names experts told Steve long Sam Sam is unbreakable. There was nothing that we could do to unlock those files are only choice was to wipe the system and hope that we had backups or to purchase the decryption keys to pay the rent. Indeed.

According to a new study, and researchers are still trying to figure out why it's happening. I thought we check in with Christian wild, the author of Irish book called hidden causes a heart attack and stroke and website is my heart book dotcom, Kristin you did a little investigating force. Have you found any reason why younger women might be getting heart attacks more than most? Yes, I have it appears that some of the things that we've heard about for years, they're not being implemented and the findings of this study, George opened a whole new chapter and. Emphasis for women's heart disease prevention and a call to be more proactive in taking steps to avoid this it 'cause of four hundred and thirty two thousand female deaths per year from heart disease. Well, it's a lot of people, isn't it. Thirty five to fifty four. It's climbed twenty-seven percent. They say, yeah. Just snuck up on them. This twenty year study found those. Statistics and associate director for the prevention of cardiovascular disease at Johns Hopkins. Dr Aaron Michaels told CNN this is a very important study. He said the main message George to women is you shouldn't think you're too young for a heart attack. Now, we all know, we all know that men have many more heart attacks than women, but women who still consider this a man's disease might be doing themselves a great disservice. Why not taking their own risk seriously and getting proper diagnostics and bloodwork men do have more heart attacks. So they have them in their early years wherever women's surpass them in the number of heart attacks as they get older, particularly when they lose the protective emphasis on estrogen which is cardio. Protective and then going through menopause. They lose that ability. But what makes this study where addressing tonight unique is that it addresses the risk to younger women? So what reasons as you ask George were identified in this study that could help younger women avoid ever becoming a heart attack statistic. Smoking diabetes to too much time behind the desk. Not finding enough time for exercise. Another factor was not monitoring once cholesterol levels, not seeking medical advice because they think they might be immune and a strong factor was controlling blood pressure possibly stress related and now that the new college of cardiology and American Heart Association, amended their blood pressure guidelines for the proper blood pressure for all of us men and women. Adults and young with the agencies belief that these new changes are just ten points will literally save millions of us over ten years. And of course, the younger women who were targeted in. This study is so important and Christians website, my heart, book dot com and take a look at some of the new thinks he's put together, including his CW heart support, which hopefully could help some of you out.

And that means millions of more stars and probably planets. All over the place bestselling author Mike bear with us, Mike. This is an incredible discovery. How big is this universe? Anyways. Well charge. I mean, you look at information like this and concluded its incident. I mean, there's so much. This is just a tiny tiny fraction of the sky that was examined with a radio telescope, and and a team of a strong numbers. Look at all the information, you know, eighteen different countries, and they found three hundred thousand three hundred thousand new galaxy that they've never seen before in this tiny little section, and when you if you assume that our galaxy the milky way's average, that's like four hundred billion stars times three hundred thousand and how many billions of those those stars have habitable planets like the earth, and how many of those have life. I mean, really. It's absolutely my boggling. We simply can't conceive of how big the universe really is. And how long it's been here. And and what it is. I mean, let's face reality.

"Good morning, south Florida Levy tax help show. We hope that everyone. Joining be. Luckily, weather in Florida because certainly up in the door. It's a little bit chilly to say the least especially this past week has been bitterly cold up in our Michigan office. But we are not here to talk about the weather. We we're here to talk about what do you do if you haven't IRS problem? What do you do if you haven't filed in a few years, and what do you do if the IRS has been contacting you or knocking at your door on the show with us? We have a pretty. Regular staple guy that is been a Levy team member for a while now and has worked at the IRS for quite a long time before he retired and give it to the private sector. Let's say Hello and good morning to the famous former IRS revenue officer, Greg the house, Greg. How are you? Rosen up here in Michigan land. But yes. Morning right now. Well, could and Greg you've heard the same thing we've heard in fact, I'm going to read off of I think an online article that says the IRS has told lawmakers that workers will return to millions of unanswered tax payers letters just tax season opens which was technically this week the thirty five day shutdown meant that the IRS is so far behind a lot of things training the new hires? They were going to bring him for tax season. And that doesn't even take into account any of the backlog that they have to recover from. According to people at Nashville tech advocate. They believe that it's going to take at least a year for the IRS to give back to business as usual. No, I rest had confirmed that statement from what we've heard, but we believe there's gotta be some backlog, but there's just so much that went on. And I think the number was pretty staggering. I think it was two hundred thousand pieces of mail on a daily basis is what was the normal male imbalance. I think there's some crazy number that seven hundred million pieces of mail have to get looked at. Yeah. Actually, I'm right. The IRS was receiving more than seven hundred thousand pieces of mail per day three times, but it was receiving prior and the shutdown dragged on so impersonal taxpayer assistance. In fact lanes. We're totally closed that that a lot of people were forced to send all the requests through the mail. And again, we don't know if any of that. That's just what we've heard, but there's quite a bit of backlog that's going to be out there. Whether it's just a general correspondence, whether it's in the collection world, you back taxes. Whether it's in the exam world, you're being audited. Greg any thoughts on that? I know what your career you experienced shutdowns. But nothing like this one, right? No, absolutely. Not worse. I had was fourteen days off. And even that was a disaster at the time that two thousand fourteen oh, a two thousand fourteen and fourteen we were shut down for seventeen days, and that took us forever and asked to get caught up on that one. That was only fourteen days not during the beginning of filing season. Right. Made it even worse this year. So it's a real disaster all the way out to the whole country right now. Let's trust your fingers that things are going to get back to normal operations just in all areas. Whether it's we don't get political here on this show. But nobody the parks being back open the TSA being back up and running whether it's that whether it's the IRS there's just so many things that were. But our focus is what do you do if you have a tax problem? What do you do if you haven't filed it a long time? What do you do if you're going to let the IRS and Greg, and they former IRS revenue officer you were that guy. You were the guy that would physically go out and make a field. Visit call would knock on the doors of business owners. You would literally go to homes knock on those doors. Can you explain everyone out there because you were that guy? What was it like being a revenue officer? So you get a file of science you, and it would be a tax payer. We have to call them clients. And then you would have to decide what your first move was was it sending a letter. It's physically going out there getting your car and driving to the business. I know these days believe it or not the IRS still likes the revenue officers to go out there and make an initial what they call field contact feel contact excuse me. So what's it like that when you were working at the IRS which wasn't all that long ago, but you've not been in the private sector and the member the Levy team for a while. But just walk everyone through how a day would go. For you. Get a new case in the assigned to me. I be reviewing all the notes reviewing the actions that were done by ACS review, the actions any correspondence, I go into the history of the tax payer since the first time around or they'd been for this radio, many many times, and they just fell off the wagon again trying to make a determination of what was wrong with the account how they possibly could have gotten into trouble and start a game plan of what's going to take to get them out of trouble going forward. Give them a hand here and trying to reorganize whatever needs to be done. So that was we do get their account caught up. Once we do give them some kind of resolution. They stay out of trouble going forward much the same way that we have been work here at the office to analyze the situation. What happened how did they get into trouble? And what it's gonna take to not only get out of trouble. But keep them out of trouble going forward from here. Right. And and actually one of the things that I wanted to have you talked about was when you were a revenue officer. I think it's fair to say that you had a much more smooth road, much, more productive dialogue and discussion. If you were working with a Representative I'd be half of the tax payer that knew what they were doing. It allowed you to work the file without emotions it allowed you to work. The file talking the same lingo the same language with tax resolution one zero one, and you actually were a very good in our opinion revenue officer to work with what you were at the IRS because you were fair, you were practical you were reasonable. You were case resolution oriented tough guy, but you do went to be reasonable where to hit the brakes where to hit the gas and Wendy hit the gas, and you were just a fair minded guy. But. It's trying to explain this to the public that hiring professional is always wise, you wanna to be able to protect your rights. You want to make sure that you turn over every stone and don't leave any stones unturned. And you wanna make sure that you are handling all of your batters in a proactive fashion. So Greg when you worked with a fraternity that do what they were doing, and we'll get to the ones that didn't know what they were doing in a while. But when you worked with so unlike us at the Levy office that knew what they were doing and you had a history of working with them in the past. It was almost a smoothie road there were less bumps because you knew what to expect. And you knew what was fair what was reasonable is that a fair statement. Because I think a lot of people think that either a they can't afford a tax resolution firm or be that it's going to cause more trouble. But I can't tell you over my career incorrect since you've been in the private sector imagine if you have been there looking out for your clients how so many of these clients wouldn't have ended. Up with the resolution that you were able to get for them. And some of these resolutions, unfortunately, we're challenging because you had to deal with IRA staff that just were very set in their ways or had a certain perception of the tax payer. And then you get a lot of your resolutions. Unfortunately, an appeals which I don't think is right either. But we love appeals. But that's a whole nother story for a hold other show. But when you were working with a professional as a former IRS revenue officer when you were there, how did you feel about working with what they were doing it probably made it a lot easier. A lot more smooth for you. Yeah. Exactly. Because that way he didn't have for peach yourself. You didn't have to go over the same stuff over and over over again, generally professionals. You know, what the standards are at the IRS that you know, our priorities at the IRS. They should know exactly what we should be done to get the case resolved fairly in as quickly as possible. Some don't always work like that. Like, you said we go into that story. A little bit later, you'll waste too right? And professional, okay? Well, you know, what ultimately I think it's really important that you're you're you're working with with someone that knows what they're doing. And greg. Let's talk about that. I'm going to give you a few examples you had to file the end of last year. Follow two thousand nine close to follow two thousand eighteen where the quiet started off where he had a bankruptcy attorney trying to play tax resolution power of attorney, and it wasn't working and this gentleman had a revenue officer who you've worked within the past. By the way, you knew where you were on the colleague of yours, and she tried to pursue this guy for a trust fund liability of about one hundred fifty thousand dollars, and it wasn't his fault. He didn't even know about it for crying out loud until it was too late. And the dad got sick. They no matter what you did. And what our office to try and talk some sense into the revenue officer about the facts of the story. She didn't wanna have it. She just didn't want to listen to it and had her mind already made up, and then you ended up having to work. Very hard and ended up working with appeals and appeals found him to be not liable. Which is what you said is what we said from the beginning. But why do you think that is it can you explain a little bit about what went on in the case like that where as a revenue officer, you hope that they do the research, you hope that they do their due diligence you hope that they're being fair, you hope that they're trying to do the right thing. But in our opinion, it doesn't always happen. Like that in this case. It's a really good example. And then you you made your your statement of facts, presented all the facts and appeals found this guy, not to be liable. Which is what you said at the beginning. It seems so clear, but for some reason the revenue officer just didn't wanna take ten minutes to listen, very very frustrating. But you you were successful. But can shed any light as to why that is Greg. Basically ready officer has to take all these different incoming inputs and look at the facts that percentage for them they have to try to analyze everything. And then they're taking it from multiple angles multiple perspectives whose fault wasn't why didn't the taxes withheld who's responsible for doing this. And why weren't they done?.

Meteorite Hunting with The Aquarius Project, Roommate Drama In Space
"O VA Globes dot com slash curiosity. Coupon code curiosity. Did you hear about the meteorite that landed in Lake Michigan in February of two thousand seventeen because that's the thing that happened and it led to the Aquarius project. The Aquarius project is a historic collaboration to find an underwater meteorite last week, Cody, and I sat down with Aubrey Henry who hosts the Aquarius project podcast and Chris Brisky who manages the Adler team programs. Here's what they told us about the meteorite. And why it's so important. Sure. Last February early in the morning, a giant green fireball lights up the sky over the midwest. And it's a huge meteor breaks up into a thousand pieces and all falls into Lake Michigan. And that's where the adventure starts a lot of scientists start wondering this never before. Tackled question. How do we go look for meteorites underwater and all these tremors at the we're talking about it and on museum campus over the marine biologist at the aquarium and also the meteorite experts in the field, and so as a team program specialist, I thought wouldn't it be awesome in this brand new endeavor to bring curious teens and curious scientists together in curiosity and go on this adventure? It's also kind of exciting because people can go like a why why this meteor why these meteorites what's a special about this and something that's kind of fun about this one is that because of how technology is advanced. There were a lot of cameras that caught it's fall. So Dr Mark hammer grin astronomer at the planetarium has been able to track. It's path back translates path back out into the solar system into the main asteroid belt. So once we find a piece of this space rock, then we get a puzzle piece of our own solar system and the makeup of our universe. That's amazing. Yeah. So makes it make space real close. It makes the distant feel very very tangible. It was this combination of their skills because between Mark hammered ran who is who's our astronomer and Mark free. So I mentioned earlier from NASA basically like with able to do is say like this rock right here, which we found because we had the radar data. And we know this came this is from this fall because meteors meteor falls overlap like you might find that meteors of crush on this planet spend here a long time. Like, there's there might be rocks from different falls in the same place. So they say, well, we know this fall is right here by using radar data. And then Mark Hammerton went back and looked at all the footage and said like okay now if we can get that rock it will actually be one of just it's under. Thirty it's like twenty eight or so meteorites ever that. We can actually say this rock came from that part of the asteroid belt right in the history of astronomy. Yeah.
