We're probably gonna need to put this on a map because some people are wildly googling right now in wikipedia where is the country have been in innocent a west africa the biggest countries nearby our nigeria and ghana. And why did you find yourself in banana in the first place. Let's start with that. I did a dna test years ago. I am african canadian. Meaning my ancestors. Came here as enslaved africans. We don't know where from and i thought. Dna tests would be a good way to find out where my origins were from. After i did the dna tests been in was one of the top countries along with togo. Nigeria the whole region. Really and then. I took a trip there for six months and been in was one of the five countries. I visited excellent. And why should someone go to in. What i loved about. Being in was that it was authentic in terms of it hasn't yet been too americanized to westernize is still wear the traditional clothes. Drink their traditional tease ethan traditional food and it really felt like you were transported back to a time. They've kept their culture almost intact. And that's why you would want to go to benin versus another country that might be more westernized. There's something authentic inorganic about banana. That is so heartwarming. Banana is a small country. As i recall. It's actually a smaller country in africa. But it's the same size approximately the same size of ohio. Which always surprises

Sherry Togo's good to Have you here. Hey, there, Mark. Thanks so much for having me this secret nutrient that we're gonna be talking about. It's called asked Sanson and reduced. I just spaced featured it brilliantly. In an article called The latest it antioxidant. Esther Sanson is a fountain of youth. As you mentioned very popular in Japan used mainstream from promoting beauty from within. As a capsule. But here in North America, people just aren't familiar with it. But But listen to this. It has 60 human studies validating it's Africa see, and as a pharmacist, there's really caught my attention. And this nutrient is not something that you can get enough of, and diet. It's founded Salmon, but you'd really have to eat a lot of sand in like £5 just to get a good daily dose so much to do that, But I'm not going that far. Sherrie. I didn't know that there were 60 plus human clinical studies. In this specific natural form of acid xanthan that happens to be impurities asked to FX formula talked about Japan Now this is a capsule. This particular Esther Xanthan is all the rage for skin health as they've been finding in Japan. Very, very interesting on so many fronts here, right? Yeah, For sure. I mean, as the xanthan at just 4 mg dose, and that's the clinical dose that is impurities asked FX formula. It's clinically tested and shown to fight fine lines and wrinkles from the inside. Five and millions in Asia. Take it daily just for that, and I don't want to get too technical here. But but just one human study that I'd like to mention Torto back up these benefits. They used the exact same dose and the type of Aston xanthan that's impurities product, and they discovered significant benefits for skin hydration, skin texture. Move nous elasticity reduction of skin spots, and there's even a reduction of readiness and an improvement in the evenness of skin tone. So we're talking about big beauty benefits, and it works from the inside of which is fabulous. Men love it. Women love it, and it's really catching on here in North America is it's a really impressive list of clinical benefits for beautifying skin from the inside out. No wonder they love is there in Japan, and now we're learning about it here. But Sherry, I know you like to say the wrinkle reducing benefits. And the skin tone benefits are just part of this. That's just kind of the cherry on the top. What do you mean by this? Well, you know, I talked to a lot of people in the pharmacy every week because I worked as a pharmacist, and I also get AH lot of friends and family and colleagues asking Me about their health than many people are, you know in their fifties sixties seventies and and they really liked the idea of a supplement that can help to improve the appearance of their skin. I mean, we all want beautiful, youthful skin. But for most people, this really isn't the key benefit. What's at the top of the list? When you ask people like what? What did they most want to achieve in their health and their wellness? You want something that that what they want something that will help to promote muscle strength, and they want stamina. They want to be able to do the activities. They enjoy golf, tennis, hiking, playing with their kids and grandkids, and this is actually patented for muscle strength. No people want energy to fight fatigue. They want to feel sharp. They're also concerned about their vision. They want to keep their eyes healthy. People are concerned about heart health circulation, immunity all of these areas. Really, We're talking about staying healthy from the inside out. So you know when you think of it, the skin benefits are compelling. But to me, it's really just the cherry on the top. You were saying that xanthan helps with endurance and performance against salmon loaded with asked Xanthan Perform. These amazing feats of endurance Ass is Anthony is also found in high levels in the eyes of seagulls. Now, that's interesting humans Mike faster when they supplement with a specific form of Aston xanthan, So is their common denominator in all of this, these kinds of bits of information Well, the research here is really clear asked. Xanthan is a molecule that feels Healthy performance, energy, stamina, strength. That's what we see in nature, and that's what we see in humans, too. It's like if you're getting older, and you want an edge for strength for energy for youthful skin to fight wrinkles from the inside out, but also to promote endurance and healthy vision. This is what you take you take this asked the FX formula with the clinical dose off the right type of asked Xanthan and you really feel it by one measure of antioxidant activity called single It Oxygen clenching activity asked Is Anthony is 100 times stronger than Coke? You 10, and this was published in 2000 and seven in a journal called Keratin Noise Science. Another study found that asked. Sanson is 6000 times stronger than vitamin C as an antioxidant again and it's single it oxygen scavenging capacity, So it's incredible. Well, I know purity has a free bottle of vast affects just two little liquid capsules a day. That's all you need, And we're gonna give out especially 100 number in just a moment for our listeners to take advantage of the free bottle offered, But before we do that Sherry Charity uses this natural form of asked Xanthan, Not that synthetic cheaper form like you find out there in the market.

Ask Tess Excuses 4 MG of the world's most clinically researched natural form of asked Xanthan called, asked her real tacos, pharmacist and author is with us here on the program is Jerry. We learned today that asked his Anthony's 6000 times more powerful by this one measurement of antioxidant activity when compared to vitamin C This asked to FX has so much power purity has something like 100, plus unsolicited testimonials on their website, and I found a couple that I especially enjoy if I could read a couple of those.

A Proposal To Burn Ethereum Transaction Fees
"So a proposal to ben a theory of transaction fees. This is coming from an e. Ip which i will link in the show notes feliciano e ip stands by theory improvements proposal. So now i'll do is. I'm going to read just the abstract on the summary from this thing. And then i'll give you my comments on it. So i actually came across this on git hub. This thing. was originally created in april two thousand and nineteen and has been in development since then and this is all according to harvard and give hope they've logged all of their calls developing development team and if the regulating the less meeting they had on this particular thing was The thet december twenty twenty. So this roy up to date in fact the less meeting that they had at the summary notes for the goal from the december he says generally feeling is that there was enough robust analysis and research with this improvement to begin discussing the next steps in the process i e how to move forward introducing too old cord avs and the theory of maintenance exciting. So that's how close they says to going onto the maintenance right. I think perfected over the of the last year or something booked with talking yet. So they're improvement. Proposal fifteen fifty nine fee market for one point out so. This is an improvement for the existing chain while ago gates shoes on so the simple summary is this is a transaction pricing mechanism. They includes a fixed pad block network feet that is bend and dynamically expands or contracts block sizes to deal with transient congestion. So what does that mean the problem. We have right now. They've got a difficult forming problems with the existing model. The fed will quote is a mismatch between volatility of transaction fee levels and the social cost transactions. The basically say that you one minute. You can have a Network free that's two hundred times what it was a minute ago right depending on just massive spikes in demand for network resources and stuff like that which seemed ridiculous. It's completely unpredictable. At second problem. Is it ends up. With needless delays for uses so does no good as socially unproductive as they call it. Where was the slack in the system to meet block by block demand while that would be met by so the listrik book sized that goes up if the blocks full and goes down if the blocks unfaithful pretty sweet scandal like the big oin difficulty. Adjustment mechanism is for blocksize. Rather than mining difficulty kind of kind of climate also says the problem is the inefficiencies of first price auctions. So what that means. Is that The minute of its to use sophisticated algorithms to estimate what fee to charge the uses of the wallet. And even though they're you know that just doesn't work. Right you end up overpaying the fee or you think you can get confirmation fifteen seconds and it takes three minutes and then you have to submit the transaction again with a high of face. Just it's just a mess right. And then the third thing is they will they call the instability of blue with no block reward. And they say well think about in the long run blockchain bitcoin. They intend to switch to rewarding minus entirely on transaction fees. You know when the bitcoin blocker would reaches next to nothing and they said will there were no issues with this kind of thing instability and so on selfish mining attack vectors and does no good solution for this at present. So what they're proposing to do is twofold one is have. This elects the block size thing where grows books of fold and shrinks of block saw you know novel and then also introduced a different pricing mechanism for transaction fees which would be that would be to to transaction fee going forward one would be this fixed a transaction fee pueblo. Which again go up and down with the blocksize. So you pay that and that base based transaction fee pet blog which would be absolutely known that would get burned right so like i spent boom johnson. Then if you wanna make sure that said your transaction gets into the blog than you can include an additional minor. Bribe as they call on top of the base fee said the minor didn't get any of the because we know that gets burned but they would get the minor bribe and the block reward so they still get two sources of revenue. The blocker would that remains the same They get the minor bribe and then they base fee gets burned. Okay well you might think well as because she's gonna cause the same problem as we've got now no it's not because was different now. Is that the book. Size is going to expand and contract so even if you don't include a minor bribe your wallet will know what the current fixed block transaction fee is and it will know what the next one is as well. So that means that in your wallet when meta mascow. Whatever will you're using. It will be able to quote you very precise transaction fees and the predictability of how soon that will go through and get confirmed. He's also much more set in than is now so that's does really right. You want the detail on how this works. Technically they've even got technical specification and a bunch of solidity code solidity code of how this will work including houses going to be backwards compatible. And how do you order. Transactions and blahdy blahdy. Bob so does that well. If you want my comments on this area. I think this should have been the design of a theory from day. One in fact. When i stood at dairy month old. This was high worked. A thought will gas right. if it's fuel surely is being burned and destroyed and took me quite a while to find out that that wasn't the case to find out the miners. Who gained all these fees on the blogger would which i four was bombing. The second thing is that if this does get implemented nobody does. It will be a massive economic boom for the theory token as an a theory in token hold. I'd be well pleased with this. Especially this would have a big effect on theory and stop the flow ratio. Which of course is top of my mind right. Now since i'm studying under safety and moose and his new book fiat standard. I'm a fan of the standard at any way. But you know that's what sir. I'm studying day to day right now. So i'm always thinking slow. Soaked floor ratio so this proposal would mean that the stock of a theory and will be constantly being reduced to offset some of the inflation for the mining rewards at the minute. He's just constantly inflating with booker woods. there's no destruction. there's no system level destruction anyway might accidentally send some their into the wrong address or whatever but the system doesn't doesn't create any deflation and this would do so on that point while we're talking about you but if i go to f gas station dot info it does have a leaderboard of the biggest guest banners right so actually lofton's articles the the They put on. The side is cold gas burners but as we know until this is implemented this proposal they don't banning gas at all alley just fees going through the contract to the minus with the number one. Let's call him guest bene- right now on the network is the union contract and in the last thirty days the amount of transaction fees going through that contract is twelve point. Seven million dollars worth of ethereal. Oh near enough to day. Two thousand f has been spent on transaction vs pretty significant amount if this proposal was implemented that would mean that in the last days unique swap would be responsible for destroying the two thousand ethereal just brilliant bending they two thousand theorem just from the fees that uses paint to use union swamp great and then tether another twenty six thousand theory would be banned in the last days because of that. So if you wanna in theory times these they say two thousand if theory of the what would ban twenty six thousand. That ted would ban if you want in. Us dollar terms it means units will be bending fifteen million dollars of theorem everyday days and tether will be betting ten million everyday days. I think those would go though. Remember is the capacity of the network would increase with this elastic book size so every time a block is full the next book slightly bigger so absolutely balmy so when when when the network is congested well more transactions go through every book which means more theory and guest band so the busy of the network is the more fees get panda. The big of the fees is self fulfilling prophecy. So i'm of course i'm talking from an economic point of view. If you're in a theory of togo you'd you definitely want this to be implemented because it it. It makes a theory more scarce doesn't it because it's bending the stalk of a theory all the time
Africa and museums: shaping the future; rethinking the past
"I just on your lawson. The founding director of the paloma in togo and andrew santo. Who's just written a book with twenty eight interviews with museum leaders across the world. I also speak to. Dan hicks about his book. The british museum's about the bronzes and for our work the week christopher repeal of the national gallery in london talks about san mateo painting of copernicus. That's coming to the national for an exhibition next year before that a reminder that you can sign up for the art newspapers free daily newsletter for all the latest stories goes to the art newspaper dot com and the link is at the top right of the page. And while you're there you can also sign up for a range of other newsletters including the book club and the art market. I now a new book by the writer and cultural strategy advisor andhra santo features twenty eight conversations with directors of museums and other institutions oldham during the covid nineteen pandemic the future of the museum. Twenty eight dialogues. Include voices from across the world attempting to define museums and the challenges and opportunities ahead of them now and in the coming days among them. Direct is of african museums including sonia lawson the director of the paladin loma in togo in west africa. Andress and sonia join me to discuss the role of museums today and look at how sonya's togalese institution reflects a new coq drew dynamism on the african continent andress. I wanted to begin by asking you. This book was written on zoom. Just as we are now essentially so you talked to twenty eight museum or cultural institution directors about what they were doing. It happened to be done in the covy deer as it were but was it. Germinating is an idea for a much longer period this spring. I wrote an article in art. Net news actually wrote it over easter weekend. So i remember did very well I guess that was early april. I can't remember the exact dates and it was an article about reopening museums. And it just hit a nerve. It really got a lot of people talking at the time. And i heard from dozens and dozens of museum directors and just became part of illogic conversation. And that's when we really realized that this is the moment because it gave us an editorial frame because it it really was a moment that made us ask what is the future about. Still trying to figure it out. I think there's no doubt in all of our minds that this is one of those years in the calendar that will be a turning point. A historical marker where new phase is beginning persona. I think this phase is the one that started in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine just ended. Now we have a new face. So what does that mean for museums. Once i figured out that this would be a book not just of conversations with museum. Directors conversations about the future not necessarily revisiting. Why museums have been great in the past of which many reasons to talk about that too but to really have a forward-looking and that is what led to choices like this extraordinary new institution in togo. Which i think is such a taste of where museums or cultural institutions or cultural centers are headed All around the world so so in a way this moment. This covert moment crystallized. How such a book could come about and how we would choose directors to be in it before we speak specifically about sons institution. I wanted to ask you about a phrase that you use in the to the book where you talk about how. The paradigm smashing experimentation in museums and cultural institutions is happening in effectively in the global south so in africa in asia in latin america. Can you expand on that a bit now. Because what do you think lies behind that. Well first of all i. That's not to say it's not happening elsewhere. And i think the book provides lots of examples of how people are thinking you in original ways about museums all around the world. But i think that there are perhaps two main reasons. Why so many of these truly interesting. And i would say inspiring. Examples of new practices are often happening in the global. South one is that many of these institutions are brand new. So it's you can speak to this. They have an opportunity to really design for the now and for the future. They're not dealing with a legacy infrastructure. They're not trying to retrofit something. That was already there and tried to adapt it to the future.
Do Checklists Make People Stupid?
"Duckworth. Our question today comes from a listener named chris. shipman. I work at a place. That thrives unprocessed chris rates thrives in quotes which i guess connotes iranian suggests that this workplace doesn't actually thrive so anyway. Chris goes on. But i feel like checklists deaden critical thinking that brings us to christmas. Actual question do. Checklists make people more stupid so angela. I like this question because it is a specific procedural question but it's got much broader implications if wanna go there so do you want to go there. I wanna go there. I've been thinking about checklists actually long before. Chris shipments sent us that question. I read togo on days. Checklist manifesto rape book right. It's just is even if you think it wouldn't appeal. It does appeal. Because he's a good writer in a great human. As you know. Stephen go on day is the harvard surgeon who also somehow ends up moonlighting as a world class writer for the new yorker and also of books and the checklist manifesto. I should get the gist of it just so there are tons of studies about how surgeons as smart as they are after more than a decade of training. They do stupid things like they leave. Sponges in the patient's body hoops and you know days later. The person has sepsis. You realize that a stupid mistake was made and so. Checklists are away to avoid mistakes when the procedures are straightforward. But they're so complex. There's like nineteen things that you're supposed to remember and you remember eighteen out of nineteen but that's not good enough. The model for this is far. I recall from the book was flying airplanes. That starting to get much more complicated back in the thirties and forties and so on. Yeah i think in the back. There's even a photo the checklist that pilots have to use in order to take off and land. Of course those are the parts of your flight. That are most likely to kill you. Because there's all these things that are pilot has to do. I mean look if you were a student in school eighteen out of one thousand nine hundred a but unfortunately we are searching or pilot if the pilot of a plane. Eighteen hundred nineteen is dead. Yeah exactly so all learns about this things about his personal experience and he says why aren't we using lists in the operating room. There have been some large scale trials to see whether this improves patient. Outcomes do surgeons make fewer mistakes than do patients live healthier and longer lives because of it. And what would you guessed. Stephen is the result of this research. Were i think. I know the result because i actually care about this stuff a little bit. So i think the result is that it works and the take-up rate of checklists in let's say operating rooms is quite strong in some places in the kind of hospitals where there's good administration and good adherence to protocol in a lot of other hospitals especially poor countries. The checklist was not taken up. Even though if i recall the world. Health organisation made the checklist manifesto part of its manifesto yet like sleep exercise their great if you do them they don't do anything. You don't do the okay. But checklists are great for certain kinds of activities or enterprises lake flying an airplane or surgery where there is a list of things that should or must be done. But and this. I guess gets to chris's question. We don't know what kind of work chris does. But i can imagine that. There are a lot of kinds of worker. A lot of activities whether they're more creative or academic work checklist might be useful and look. I like checklist. Personally i use them. But i could see where an over reliance on them would routine is or bring some kind of more creative activity down to a level that you don't want because the very nature checklists means that you're not thinking that you're following a procedure mechanically. You're not on item. Seventeen of the takeoff checklist and thinking. Well would i actually think about no flip a switch and you get to take off so i think that's right. I think that when you have complex tasks that are straightforward even though there are nineteen steps that don't require judgment judgment. Have you ever looked into the training. Nordstrom's shoe sales people. I have to admit. I have not okay. The reason i looked into it is because i have bought plenty of shoes at nordstrom and it's famous for its service and in particular a surplus around shoes. If you look into the training of nordstrom salespeople the first and maybe only role that they're really asked to follow is use your judgment and. That's kind of like anti checklist manifesto. A customer comes in and they've worn these boots obviously for two years and they say i'd like my money back full refund please. I don't like the color instead of a checklist. Like do this. Look at their is. Its use your judgment. And i think that's a nice counter to the benefits of checklists. Use your judgement. Like i believe that. If i give this person what they want they will kill me and therefore i should do yeah. I think that's right. I think that there must be certain scenarios where you just can't create a procedural checklist because they're too many alternatives. If you just go down the list you're gonna miss something and in the case of a really angry customer. Who might do something either untoward or even dangerous. I think you do want somebody who's human and who is thinking

So all of our patients in all of the families that we serve fly commercially and but that always that that wasn't always the case So when we were founded back in nineteen eighty, five we started as a as a nonprofit and with with a group of this network of private pilots and and it was only with these private pilots on donating their time, their money, their their planes that that these patients would be able to travel say from.

Celebration and really create some ideas and we were thinking about, Hey, what if we actually gifted some of these amazing time pieces to to these private pilots that actually helped us all those years ago. So so our team. Contacted one, a gentleman His name is Dave and and he's actually a Las Vegas resident. is now eighty years old but dave helped. So many of our patients fly back in the I guess it was like the early nineties nineties. And And what we thought would be a good good ideas. If we connected Dave, the pilot, you one of the patients that he flew all those years ago and there's a patient. Her name is Jessica and Chm actually. Has A has a disease called arthri posts and it's an orthopedic, a condition where the the limbs don't necessarily form on the way their intended to and and she her first flight would dave. Back in nineteen, ninety, five and nineteen, ninety, six was Was To Seattle, at Jessica was like two years old Ohka and again day flew her a number of times and when we reached out to Dave and said, hey, we want to do this little reunion. He could. He was just so excited began this is he's eighty now. So you know he's getting up there and he was just so excited to connect so. In the pandemic times we connected via zoom and they had this wonderful reunion where Dave was able to see Jessica who is now walking and anyone who knows a typical diagnosis a of of Arthur guideposts you're you don't walk. You're you're pretty much confined to a wheelchair, but Jessica is walking she she's a college student at the at Oregon State University. And it was so incredible to see them re reunite of the resume, and then we were able to present Dave with with the awesome a Tornado watch as some kind of symbol. Of thanks and and obviously celebrating partnership so it was lovely to do that values are first Reunion that we were planning on doing other ones. In Togo has just been so generous that they really wanted to get into celebrating other pilots as well. So a few things that we actually have in line of for for activation coming the next few months actually going to. meet up with an air. Force. Pilot Air. Force. Vet Who who used to be a pilot and SORTA surprised him with the tour going watch. He's actually been supportive miracle flights for a long time as well and as our kids fly you know our kids are still flying an Algebra Algebra accident short with they're going to surprise their pilots that are actually flying the the commercial planes flying on. Now they're gonNA surprise those pilots with some with some Togo and watches as well. So we have a law planned, but it's it's such a amazing partnership really to celebrate. These families, these pilots are so instrumental in helping these families.

"Right you know. It's I I knew. Bits and pieces of it. But I'd never heard the name Togo and if you go into it with that firm of mine like I. Did you spend a lot of a lot of time thinking? Oh is this. Is this the scene where he dies actually? My wife came into the room and said is is he going to die and I said Yeah I think so she left. Yeah she didn't want to watch it. Yeah then it's like fifteen minutes more. The movie The dogs just not dying so bad at the end. I was like oh I sent her out of really good senior all because I thought the dog was GonNa die. I wanted to call have some scripture because as Christians we are guided by the word of God which is how. God communicates communicates to us in this day and age and We are called to be fair even to the animals of creation Deuteronomy Twenty five four tells us do not muzzle an ox. While at treads out the green. And if you don't know if you don't know what that means picture two oxen yoked to spindle that just spins around and And these two oxen they just or four ochsner however many half they just They walk in a a trough that has green in it. And what that does is it breaks up the grain breaks the The Chaff and the weed apart so that the people can then scoop up the green and put it on sheets and then shake out the grain so that the chaff has blown away in the wheat. The heavy wheat remains and Deuteronomy twenty. Five four tells us don't muscle that don't prevent the ox from eating the grain because it's doing all the work so it tells us to be fair. A lot of people use that scripture also as a means of that basically. The workman is worth is higher. So you don't yet. It's a very broad broad. I it can be applied in a lot of different ways. Yeah it's which is one of the great things about scripture is because you know this I twenty five four Deuteronomy Twenty Four. It doesn't exist alone And it can be tied to so many other verses that that expand the the word of God in ways that we are constantly discovering for ourselves. So we're called to be responsible about creation and in proverbs twelve ten. It says the righteous cares about his animal's health. But even the merciful acts of the wicked or curl and we should all be striving to be righteous. And of course you know these animals are all our responsibility and I know we have talked about this one before Genesis one twenty six then God set let us make man in our image according to our likeness. They will ruled fish of the sea. The birds of the sky the livestock the whole earth and the creatures that crawl on the earth so these animals are all our responsibility and stewardship and we are called to use them in the fulfillment of God's Commandments. And you know the two Greatest Commandments. Love the Lord your God with all your soul and love your neighbors yourself so I just wanted to throw this all out there and I want to cap it off in tight back to the movie because there's a quote near the beginning of the movie which didn't make it under our notes but it's between constance and CEPA where she's demanding that he not take Togo on this run because Toko old. He's twelve years old and she's afraid that he won't survive it and quite frankly turns on her and he says. Do you want me to return. Because if I don't take Togo there's a high chance that I won't make it back. And I need Togo to survive this trip. And so there you know. He loves Togo as much as she does. But he understood the limitations of the at the rest of the team and that if he didn't have a good lead dog on this very dangerous trip there was a high likelihood that he wouldn't make it back and so that was him. You know being truthful about his need for his work animals to be dependable and trustworthy on a dangerous trail and that it was a choice between the dog's life in his own. And you know it's a I didn't remember it until you mentioned it. But there is a scene where he he can't see anymore set Kenzi anymore and he says he tells Togo. Take us to the way point. 'cause they they've done this run you know before. So Togo knows where to go but Togo he doesn't. I don't have any reason to think that that didn't happen. But although saved sex life and the serum yes if they did not survive the run it was death sentence for everybody in nome. That was sick and so it was definitely a situation where it wasn't just one life in the balance or even the lives of the dogs and the balance it was the life of people that were dying of. Diptheria in children yet children. Yeah which brings us to our our first real major theme that we wanted to talk about which is corn team. Because that's what we're in right now. We're suffering a worldwide pandemic of something like nobody's ever really seen before I don't I don't even think the Spanish flu and the mid nineteen eighteen hit the level that this is hitting worldwide. And just as I mean not necessarily in deaths but in the the way it's affecting every nation it's like we've become so open as an international community that once it POPs up somewhere it it ends up being everywhere and it's just flabbergasting to see how many countries now have cases of of of Co Co vid nineteen which I've actually was watching an article. I'm saying that wrong. It's Actually C. O. V. I D. Nineteen because Really See yes. Co v stands for Corona virus in nineteen the type so. I think everybody's been saying you're wrong but anyway. Yeah Yeah Yeah. So as for those of you who. Maybe don't follow our facebook page or group. You may not have known that as soon as we finished. Our recording of Emma is literally the day after we recorded our last episode on the movie. Emma Tim came down with the corona virus. So you WanNa talk about that a little bit. Yeah so you know. A lot of people have drawn comparisons between co V. I D. Nineteen which is the illness which is actually the illness caused by SARS Dash C O v Dash to the the name of the virus. They a lot of people drawn comparisons between that and the flu and a historic nineteen eighteen Spanish low and and other epidemics and I can't speak to the nineteen eighteen flu because I wasn't around for that one but I can tell you that my case of Cova. Nineteen was hands down the worst illness. I have ever been through my my fifty years on this planet. I was miserable beyond mention. There were times where I was laying under blankets at least one of which was heated and shivering so badly that my entire body eight. I couldn't walk from the bedroom to the living room. You know the length of twenty five feet without running out of breath and it was absolutely horrible and it dragged on and on when they say when they say two weeks for to run its course they are not joking. It actually took me fifteen days to go from first symptom to symptom essentially symptom free At the end they say the Koffler hang around and And I still Every once in a while is too I still call a little bit but Nothing like you know the the I better pick that lung backup. Put it back in my chest type coughing that I had while I was sick with the Govan but I can. I can easily understand how people are into ending up hospitalized for this and dying Now keep in mind I have What's called Co Morbidity? I number one. I'm obese. I meant I'm I'm a big guy. I'm three hundred pounds even though even though I'm I'm relatively fit under all that fat. I'm still a big Guy I also have family histories and personal histories of hypertension diabetes type two diabetic and have been doing you know a diabetes medicine for Twenty Five Years. Twenty twenty twenty five years so those co Morbidity Made it significantly worse for me than your normal person might be. As a matter of fact both my wife and daughter caught it from me. They were considered adjacent cove in nineteen cases never tested because they they didn't get serious enough symptoms to receive the test which back then back then. We're talking three weeks ago back then. The tests were much shorter supply. But my wife. My wife is still coughing badly in and under the care of Dr my daughter thank God is fully recovered. But it was a scary onus scary onus and it's really interesting because in the context of this movie. I did a little research. I don't really know that much about diptheria but it sounds like it's not the same but a very similar type of way to die because in with Kovic nineteen is. Sounds like the people who die of. It are basically suffocating They're not able to get enough oxygen into their system and it sounds like at least from what I've been hearing is that it's more on the cellular level than on the lung level. Where it's not that. They can't get air into their lungs. It's literally their cells cannot carry the oxygen and so it's very like I seem to remember an infection of the red blood cells. Isn't it prevents them from actually? It replaces the oxygen and saturates red blood cells with itself. Yeah so that they can't carry the oxygen well. Diptheria is different in that diptheria has a it almost like cut coats tobacco the throat with dead skin. And so and their their throat swells and they can't breathe past all the stuff in there windpipe and so they suffocate because they can't get the air in and still at very terrible way to die but it's it's actually kind of similar in that there has to do with not being able to breathe respiratory and respiratory and the sad thing about the theory. Is that it. It doesn't like cove nineteen appears to be attacking people with as you pointed out co Morbidity and people with preexisting health problems it's usually not the cove in nineteen that kills people at the pre existing health conditions that do and locations or complications. Yeah and but with Diptheria it was actually attacking children the most and so it was the youngest and the most vulnerable that we're getting it and that I mean it is just very sad when you think about that and put it into perspective of this town. There's literally watching their children suffocate to death. And it's a very contagious. And they needed that serum to save the children and so it's it's a similar but different kinds of quarantine because I you know they. They were trying to keep the ones who had it away from the people who were healthy so that it wouldn't spread and I'm not entirely sure how diptheria is spread but it was bad and so we just wanted to talk a little bit. We belong to the Christian podcast community in this topic has already been done over and over again over the last couple two to three weeks and our fellow podcasters podcasts. But we did want a time. We all agree on it. I did want to talk briefly about the Christian responses to not necessarily cove in nineteen but what people of faith do in these types of situations because people are literally hiding in their homes out of fear of death and we see organizations like Samaritans purse putting up hospitals in central park and in Italy To help treat these bringing in Christian doctors and Christian nurses to help care for these people that are dying and putting themselves in harm's way and it's not just Christians doing it because there are a lot doctors and other medical personnel. Who ARE NOT CHRISTIANS? Who are on the frontlines of this shortly. Yeah we'll talk about them shortly but as a Christian response do we face these kinds of situations with fear. What should be our eternal outlook on this kind of situation because as I have mentioned some friends recently. I really believe that we. We are faced with Christians with a choice that you know just living is a risk I mean and we have a one hundred percent certainty of physical death but as Christians we do have an internal perspective that that gains priority over that and that is as you pointed out earlier love for our neighbor love for our God and how we interpret that in a situation where there's a pandemic has a lot to do with. I guess what are our faith is in and what. Our outlook on life is if we become so selfish that all we can think about is keeping ourselves safe instead of what might be of use for someone else or on the the other extreme end our own personal liberty where we don't feel like we have to worry about our safety to the point that we put others in danger because we're not concerned about people so it it comes with two extremes and it's a hard question and I think is something that we each have to answer ourselves with conscience before the Holy Spirit and God and through reading scripture. Because I'm not entirely sure there is a right answer like you just said..

"Those of you who've maybe not seeing the movie. The story of Togo is not one that we can really spoil. Because it's a story that has been told many times it comes right. Outta history two hundred years old. Yeah so it's about the great sermon of a dome. Nome Alaska happened in. What was the date of that? It was nineteen twenty five. There are lots of movies done. There is another and then the famous one with Balto yes. There was a Disney movie with Balto There that just last year. There was another theatrical release which I understand. I haven't seen it myself but I understand. It was a big dud was called the great Alaskan race which actually featured the story of Togo over the story of Balto but it was not a very good movie from what I understand. So we're going to review Togo. Not The great Alaskan race because neither of us have seen the great Alaskan race. And I think Tokyo's probably a much better movie. I don't think either of us are going to be able to see the great Alaskan race since we can't find it. It is a little difficult to find. I did look for it and I wasn't quite willing to pay rental prices so I couldn't find it anywhere where I didn't have to pay streaming rental prices so Balto is the name of the dog. Everybody remembers but this movie is about Togo. The lesser known dog. Who actually did the most amount of work in the serum run and I had never heard of him before watching the movie and it was a good movie. I Love dog movies. Love true stories so this one kind of ticked all the boxes for me. This was a very well done movie the Acting Direction and effects were very impressive for a made for streaming movie which it was made for streaming and above all my probably biggest happiness with the movie. Or what I thought was best done of the movie was the casting was very well. Done William Defoe plays SEPLA and if you see their faces side by side. They couldn't have casted him better. He definitely looks like the Leonard Sample of from history. The pictures we have of them. Yeah so those are my initial first impressions. Quickly run off. Do you want to talk about your? Yeah Yeah I enjoyed the movie but I I had some qualms with it it minor minor qualms really this was a. It was an enjoyable movie. It was a powerful movie to be sure but I thought it was a bit too heavy in the dialogue department. There seems like every single line was written to be quote worthy and I might just be complaining because you know I was literally writing every single line into my notes. So that's why you didn't like it. It makes you. You had to take note. It made me work hard. Yeah it's a serious movie about a very very serious subject and the all the humor of which there was not enough in my mind to balance but all the humor was centered around Togo. The back story of Togo. Yeah the back story of him growing up and everything but that might have been. Actually you know creative choice. A conscious creative choice because the movie. Hey let's face it. It's about Togo. Yeah I just. I felt like we could've used a little more. Levity I did enjoy the the banter between constance and set about. That's what I get for Marianne Belgian. That's what I get for marrying a Norwegian. Yeah are the comment that she made. When he first came back that she had her many lovers that she had to keep happy while they're exactly they're obviously. Yeah obviously well committed couple so it was obviously just a running joke but it was really funny speaking which I really appreciated the portrayal of the characters as real complicated people with real complicated feelings. You could see it in the faces and you could hear it. In the way they deliver their lines and in so many of the characters. And we're not just talking the main ones of of constants here. We're talking the doctor and the mayor and even a couple of the other guys in the in the opening town meetings seen. Yeah and and the way stations in the the the waste. Yeah the the new it Husband and wife team really really touched me in the fails type thing. Yeah the way they delivered lines but the one I think did the best job was Julianne. Nicholson who I recognized from law and order criminal intent and she did such a good job playing constance. sets wife the way she delivered the lines and the way she communicated with the expressions on her face. It was so subtle yet. It did such a job obviously as streaming movie. It's not eligible for an Oscar. Is it? I don't know I don't know regardless. I think she deserves an award for her job in it. Yeah I liked. How and not just Togo. But Togo really drove it home for me. As far as recent movies I like the portrayal of the strong community and traditional values Even though Hollywood portrayals like that do tend to lawless into a a sense of the good old days when really the girl days really were not all that good People were just as as sinful and just as liable to lie cheat and steal as they are today. They're just better at hiding it. Yeah exactly and the only other comment I had was I thought the CGI weather or specifically the CGI hazards that Sep and his team his sled team faced were over the top in particular that the storm wall was really impressive. Coming towards you you know But then when he's crossing the sound and the Isis breaking up I was just like no no which is interesting because he they say that that did happen to him on one of his trips matter the serum trip but he did have problems with breaking ice on the happy to throw off. Oh yeah throwing his like grappling. It's an I don't just to be clear. I don't doubt that that happened. I just don't think it was that dramatic. You know it's been. I grew up in Michigan and we had lakes. You know so packed so tightly around us you couldn't throw stone without hitting one so it's I remember what it was like to have ice break up but the ice I mean it was it was breaking up. It was four feet thick. And poking out of the ground like Apocalyptic landscape is which was really great visual but it was overly so for me. It'd be interesting to find out exactly how ice breaks up in the Arctic because it may be different up. Ask than it would be in Michigan. So you know you never know they may. Yeah so I mean that's where I live. I sparks ours. Broken up ice so I could see it. You know changing shape and turning and twisting and basing on the the density of the ice and what have you so. I'm sure it's dangerous regardless I understand. There are few things more dramatic than the calving of a new iceberg. So might be completely off base here. Yeah so over. I think we both liked the movie and would recommend it. Yeah Yeah I would definitely recommend it particularly in this time of home schooling I think it is a very family appropriate movie I don't remember any bad language and there certainly wasn't any any adult situations it. Does you know it. It does feature death as a main theme even though it doesn't really picture so it. Yeah Yeah so you know. Younger children would probably need some extra discussion with it but I think the this is the exact kind of history that we we risk repeating if we do not remember it and so I if I still had kids at home during home school. This is the kind of movie that I would use for that and And discuss stuff like the the epidemic and the the people. It's it's got historical context and we actually discovered in researching for this episode. That there is actually a lot of information on the web about The true story about similar in Togo and Balto and the in that whole run. So there's lots of ways you can tie that into a history lesson And of course we do encourage you always to look up. Plugged IN DOT COM and check out their review because they often will see issues with a movie that we don't see 'cause we don't are not nearly as sensitive as they are so do check out what they have to say about it and In case you are concerned about showing it to your family but it is a rated. Pg movie so it is pretty clean and From a story standpoint and the fact that it's not it's telling true history. I think we can say we. Highly recommend it. Yep agree so you wanted to talk briefly about a use of animals in as I guess. Workable or yeah. Livestock Work Animals Animals in general and the reason is let me lay this out real quick. I am a dog lover. I have my family has had a dog one or more dogs for every year of my life. The only time that I have not personally had a dog in the household is when I was single and unmarried. So we'RE TALKING SHAPE. Eighty nine through ninety two But my family still had dogs and and I would visit them anyway. Regardless too much information I now live in the Hampton roads region. Virginia I live in Virginia Beach. Men Right next door to us as Norfolk which is the home of pita the people for the ethical treatment of animals and pita and I have some Rather strong disagreements on philosophy and theology There's this theology of worshiping creation and they hold to a philosophy that animals are every bit as important and as worthy of consideration and respect as human beings are which has an element of truth to it. Because it's part of creation But it in the end it simply is not true if you come down to having to choose to save a dog or a person you save a person every time. Yeah and you know this is coming from. It's my two. Dogs are both very important to me. We love him. We have a sixteen year old cocker Spaniel and a seven year. Old Mutt and they. They are members of my family. But they're not people they're animals. They're not made in the image of God but they are part of God's creation and where called to be proper stewards of all creation and that means if necessary using the animals of that creation to serve God others all the way up to and including death if necessary and the if necessary part is where the stewardship comes in and at a big part of movie. Do you are convinced by the filmmakers. That Togo is Not going to survive the Iran and I want to be clear there too I specifically once we talked about doing this movie I had to willfully avoid looking Toko because I had never heard of him before you mentioned it and I didn't want to ruin the movie I wanted. I wanted to be surprised by by that. It's pretty rare that we get a history topic. I don't know anything about so. Yeah Yeah it's I. I mean I knew I knew the story of Balto obviously I knew about the the The dog sled consist this..

"Four ten says just as each one has received a gift. Use it to serve others as good stewards of the varied grace of God. And you know even if it's nonbelievers out there that's still what they're doing is they're using their gifts to serve and It's it's good to see well one of the things that comes out really interesting about this movie as we have both stated neither of US heard Togo. But we'd both all while both had heard of Balto before this it turns out that Balto got the credit for a very interesting reason number one. He was the one of the lead dogs on the less lead brought the serum into nome and so the dog was named Fox and the journalist onsite thought that people would think that one of the lead dogs was actually a Fox and so he decided to use Balto as the picture of the triumphant victory of getting the serum into dome and so he took a picture of Balto and made a big deal about him and he was just really one of two lead dogs that brought the finals. The final run not saying that he didn't undergo some tough road right. You know in fact. I think they said that that last team ran through storm to get to nome so it wasn't like they had an easy road. Nobody had heard of Togo and Togo ran so much further than bolted and in fact he nearly died. He was in very bad shape at the end of his run. They had to recuperate in one of the way stations and according to the movie. I don't know how true this was. But he basically had to walk to go home he couldn't because Tokyo did not win. forego his position as Lee dog but he was to weaken in hurting too much to actually pull the sled and so he had to walk him the rest of the distance home after the. You know the mission was complete. It was a situation where he this. Dear dog owner had put his dog in harm's way and literally thought he'd run him to death and he didn't get any credit for it and Baltica all the credit for it and I was thinking about. How important is it that we get the credit? We deserve which one little point of fact that most people kind of leave out. Is that though the driver? That of the team that Balto lead bringing the serum in was was not SEPLA. The dogs that were on that team persepolis dogs so Balto actually belonged to Sepah and Toko was just his choice he had a whole bunch of Docs. He raised dogs. That's what he did. He raised in and train dogs for sledding that was his job and so he had bunches of dogs and it was constance who actually picked out the team that had Balto and Fox in the lead and For that final run and they were separate dogs but he was very upset. The TOKO didn't get the recognition. Even though Balto was his dog did get the recognition. So I just thought that was an interesting point effect but I think that sometimes we get as Christians too hung up on getting credit for things and I am probably the first one to as my hand and say this is me mea culpa. I'm at fault for this. I like to be recognized. I think most of us like to be recognized when we do things right. But in Matthew six one through four it says be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. Otherwise you have no reward with your father in heaven so whenever you give to. The poor. Don't sound a trumpet before you as the Hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets to be applauded by people truly I tell you they have their reward when you give to the poor. Don't let your left hand at your right hand is doing so that you're giving maybe in secret and your father. Who Sees in secret will reward you? I actually memorized sermon on the mount a long time ago. And this was one of my favorite passages just remind myself over and over again. That what we do doesn't have to be seen by men that God can give us the credit that we need and deserve Through our salvation and through our rewards in heaven. I is isn't necessary for people to recognize. Sent us the good that we do in the world and you know when we do get credit when we when we get the earthly credit when we're recognized for doing something good that serves. God's purpose to were. We are getting that credit because he intends for us to get that credit so we need to accept when we do and when we don't proverbs sixteen nine says a person's our plans his way but the Lord determined steps so whether whether or not we're recognized for what we have done it's God's will that happens I mean let's face it. That's what being sovereign means. Yeah but when we get the credit it's so we can bring glory to Jeremiah nine. Twenty three twenty four. I have this one posted on my wall This is what the Lord says. The wise person should not boast in his wisdom. The strong should not boast in his straight. The wealthy should not boast in his wealth but the one who boasts boast in this that he understands and knows me that I am the Lord Showing Faithful Love Justice and righteousness on the Earth for I delight in these things. This is the large declaration and Ito. Paul Echoes Echoes that later in the New Testament when he says that all the all the things that he is our like trash compared to God you know and he counted all his nothing because he wants to boast in the salvation of Christ and that should always be our our our post should always be. This is what has done for me. This is Christ work in me. I did not me Lord. But you should always be our our motto. Of course it is a little different when you think about it with Sepulveda and Toko because it didn't necessarily want the fame for himself but he was upset that his dog didn't get the credit so it wasn't like he was looking for credit for himself was more of an injustice thing. Yeah before we finish up on this episode. I do WANNA touch briefly on the characterization of Togo in this movie one of the things they do in this movie is Kinda show. The back story of how? Togo wormed his way into supple his heart because he was kind of a demon puppy. It was Kinda like this. Everything he did was just seem so mischievous and wrong and he himself out of his pin and he'd break windows and even says at what point Saint Francis of Assisi which you just talking. Because he's just a major annoyance he's like skits in the in the way everything and he makes it just how how much destruction. This dog causes. yeah. I know there's dramatic license. But there's a scene where he's walking across the shelf in a workroom that he's been locked in and take himself out of his pin. Yep and just like every every workbench in America. It's got glass jars of screw slide up on the shelf and as he's walking across his show fees knock it off each class jar and it's just crash crash crash crash crash just. I was like oh I was ready to shoot the dog and then there was the scene. Where which a lot of these when you look at the historical story. They said that these things really happen. Like one of the ways. He tries to get rid of the dog as he sells him to a woman who wants to guard dog and a house pet as a guard dog kind of thing and the Togo literally goes through a glass window to get out of the House and breaks the glass window and goes running all the way back to SEPLA. Well the the end of the movie. They make a point of drawing this conclusion whether it was the true conclusion from real life. But this is what comes to the realization. That Togo's wasn't really A master sled dog because he was bred to be a flood dock. It was because he he truly was devoted to supple. He loved Sepla in he was willing to do anything to just be with. Sepla and so of course. The movie ends with him. Being you know week we just kind of retired together and gave him A. You know a quiet life where he sired puppies reason and just hung out with US equipped pulling sleds. And that's the happy ending wasn't quite that way in real life but the point was that in the movie was that they realize that Tokyo just wanted to be Sepla and so they just gave him that in no longer making him a work but just to be with Ebola and I was thinking about that in in this is not of course a perfect metaphor for our trust in Christ because I think it depends on Togo a lot more than cry. God depends on us so it's not really a sipple but we have a very special relationship with our master and Christ is the one that we should be so devoted to that. We are willing to go through anything to be with him and I think sometimes we lack that kind of devotion for Christ is like I think especially Western Christianity. We've become so comfortable that we don't We don't we don't foresee hardship and toil and pain as being trials that make us stronger in our faith instead. We cry about them and and get upset about them in and we don't see how we're growing spiritually through them. And so in Togo went through a lot of pain and toil to stay with Sepulveda and to be devoted to him and I think that we should have some of that desire ourselves and in dealing with but dealing with our master who is Christ. I mean as Christians. We are called to be servants of God and servants. Don't necessarily have easy lives and we can't expect our lives to be easy because we're following Christ in fact I do. I do want to bring this up because this was an interesting fact. That was highlighted at the end of the movie right before the credits that Tokyo's devotion was so important that they literally started a breed from his stock. So there's the Zeppelin. Siberian Husky is based on Tokyo Stock. I mean He. He sired puppies and his later life and he. His devotion was passed on to generations. There they said that the the Sepah Siberian Husky is valued because it does create such devoted dogs that are just willing to go the extra mile and and just really form these really intense bonds with their masters. And that's that should be what we are as as Christians. We should have that intense bond with Christ. I mean we talk about devotion devotion to Christ but I kings eight versus sixteen. Sixty one mentioned being wholeheartedly devoted and A re read that in a second. But that's what we see. In Togo is the wholehearted devotion and what the verse says Versus Sayer? May All the peoples of the earth. Note that Lord is God. There is no other be wholeheartedly. Devoted to the Lord our God to walk in his statutes and to keep his commands as it is today and that wholehearted devotion is is pictured is reflected in Togo's devotion to supple and Even in the words of Christ if anyone comes to me and does not hate his own father or mother wife and children brothers and sisters yes even his own life he cannot be my disciple and obviously doesn't mean that you need to love your parents and become a hermit. Yeah but what it means. Is You have to love God. You have to love your savior more. And that's a hard thing to do it very hard thing. Yes it is. We see that in not only the devotion of Togo in the movie but in the dogs that we at that we have our feet the dogs that are in our houses. They are totally devoted even in their disobedience when they chew up the cow. Cher- you know road and compare shoes. They're still totally devoted. And that's the kind of devotion That's of Pale reflection of the kind of devotion that we should be showing God. Yeah well I hope. Everybody has enjoyed this discussion.

"I think this is a great opportunity for revival of Christians are not using it as a means to tell the world about Christ. They're really missing their chance. Because there are a lot of people needing hope right now even without the virus having the economy shutdown and having jobs lost and This is a situation where people are literally living at at home with all of the shortcomings of sinful man. Condensed into a house full of people except for those of us who are single owner in quarantine by themselves but abusive situations can be. There's no way out you know you're stuck in a house abusive situation. There's people who would normally be at work and are literally. I mean driving themselves crazy especially extroverts. Who are used who really need that. day to day interaction with people just to express their personalities. And it's a situation that can become very tired just in my neighborhood. Yesterday I saw a massive amount of police suddenly appearing in my neighborhood and I had no clue what they were doing there and I lit it later. Found out that there was a sixty sixty ish. Gentlemen who had brandished a gun on somebody else in the household and they were treating it like a hostage situation and brought in. Swat and police from like three different departments because they're on the county line and it was Quite the exercise they they were able to get him to surrender and come out but nobody was hurt. But it's it's those kind of situations that are made worse by a stay at home order where everybody is stuck at home in dealing with you know whatever and securities they have and this is the time when people need hope and the only hope that really lasts is the hope of Christ and so we need to be diligent in sharing that with our friends and neighbors and not just taking it for granted that they don't need our help that they don't need us to speak into The despair that is going on in their homes and I'm pointing a bunch of fingers at my house off right now because I'm an introvert and I'm perfectly happy at home with. My Door's closed it. But I need to be checking on my neighbors. I need to be making sure that everybody gets what they need. And and Yeah if nothing else. A kind word from a safe six foot distance. You're absolutely right so that leads right into talking about everyday heroes because this movie Really talks about several people who go to heroic endeavors in order to save children and in in the context of the movie didn't really have anything you know. Any risk to him and his wife they. It looks like they lived outside of town. They weren't really exposed at a diptheria. He had just come in from a run so he was ready for a break. And and there's a scene where he's waxing his sled runners and his wife is like so you are going to take this run. And he's like I didn't say that perfectly happy staying here. I haven't been here in a while. Need to stay home for a while. He seemed not be reluctant to commit to going on this run but they needed him to and we did find out looking into the actual history of cephlon his wife that they actually did have an eight year old daughter at the time of this which. I don't know why they left out of the movie is seemingly. I'm just curious about that to an odd Omissions considering the fact that it gave him some motivation for making the trip and risking his favorite dog because they really almost kind of feel like in the way that it's portrayed in the movie that Togo is almost like their child. You know it's like The dog was especially important to constance because she had raised him as a sick puppy and Even though separate was just willing to let him die because he was a renton useless. But you really get this. This feeling that they're risking their child. You know that the this whole concept of taking Toko on this run was against consciences wishes and didn't think he would make and they had to do it anyway because they needed the motivation to make this run and the the hazards were incredible. I mean we. We're currently hailing as he rose the truck drivers who are staying on the job and to deliver stuff to our stores and don't get me wrong. These people are risking a lot to to be continuing on the job and it's not easy because a lot of the way stations that they would normally stop at to sleep and eat. They can't stop at because restaurants are closed. And there's no place to to to stop and rest. They're making these cross country tracks so these guys really are modern-day heroes in the case of cove in nineteen. What separated with his dogs is way above and beyond so he is an everyday hero. A real hero. I mean he really did it. And and he wasn't the only one though he went the furthest and with his dogs and Toko leading the whole way He he did like I think ten times. Further than any of the other Rela- runners mushers and dog sleds What was his motivation for doing it? And it was because he cared enough about the people who needed that serum to make that choice and to ride into that storm. He did it because it had to be done. His community dependent upon him and It's the way I don't I don't know if Sepp was actually you know that Stoic. In real life as defoe played him in the movie I it was a good balance and informed the informed the audience about the characters decisions. He he didn't have any intention of going on the run but he was also a realist and knew that he would probably be going on the run. What was he said? I have no inclination to right and I think he felt like. If you sit anybody else that they wouldn't survive the run and then it would have been worthless because the the cost of life in the community if you didn't send the best team on this trip. And when he left he didn't know it was going to be a relay. He thought he was going to go all the way. Exactly since pick up the the stuff and bring it all the way back. He thought he was doing the whole run himself. And so I mean for him to step up and take that responsibility knowing that he was probably the only one that could do it and come back with the serum because the whole point was to get the serum back it wasn't to prove anything to make any records or the whole point was to get that Sarah back in a timely matter and you know like so many things in my life I I tie back to examples of soldiers in combat and You know when my buddy rob is Was standing outside the door of a building in Iraq that needed to be cleared. He didn't have any inclination of going in there and getting shot at. Yeah but it had to be done so he did it and he you know he had his team with him and they accomplish mission. And that's the same kind of stoicism that that we see from seven in this movie that same kind of devotion and I appreciated that and the sad to hear hero here ship center real work heroism. Thank you Terry. Well we see that same kind of heroism in our medical officials today because a lot of them are getting sick and dying in the the idea of going in and they can't go home to their families because they go home to their families they have the potential of infecting their families and so they're working around the clock. Take probably taking naps on out of the way corners in the hospital. Because they can't go home as you have pointed out. This is not a short sickness it takes a while to get over and so these people are literally being the comforters. And the caretakers of people who can take days and sometimes still die and I've seen some pretty heartfelt videos and posts from nurses that have watched people die of this illness and the saddest thing is that they can't have their family there with them and so they're they're dying alone and except for these nurses and doctors and that's a lot of pressure to put on our medical personnel to not only be the caretakers but to be the last ones to be with somebody when they die. My Hat's off to them. I do WANNA call out. There are a number of community groups out there that are stepping forward to support these every day. Heroes he's modern heroes medical professionals the doctors who can't go home. There's a group that my wife told me about just the other day called. Rv'S FOR MD's where they are renting and borrowing RV's to put in the driveways of doctors homes. So they can go and stay in this. Rv At their home and be near their family even if they can't be in touch with them. Yeah interact with them. Yeah coming beginners community. Yeah exactly that kind of coming together as a community is is so uplifting it reminds me a bit of you know how people were just after nine eleven before the politicians kind of got ahold of it. I appreciate that. It's that this very difficult. Time is bringing out good and and people again. Yeah bringing us together as communities in his neighbors and people checking on people and while there is obviously still the nasty side of things. My parents have mentioned that some friends of theirs. They were at the grocery store as a couple back before when they were still letting couples shop together which they're not now even not letting you do but he. She had needed to use the restroom and so he was standing outside waiting for her to come out the restroom and he saw this well dressed like businessmen going around and touching everything he could touch literally opening the eggs and touching every egg and handling everything shelves and he was just completely puzzled by. He couldn't figure out what this guy was doing in in that kind of situation. It's just like disgusting behavior. Some from some people are are just Truly evil in my mind whether or not he was infected with anything just the thought of somebody going in handling food that someone else is going to come behind him by is just totally disgusting. It's it is the definition of terrorism. I mean yeah doing something specifically to cause fear and others right in order to establish a political statement. So who knows? Maybe he could be charged with domestic terrorism. Yeah yeah the thing is is that that does just like this kind of thing can bring out the good people it can also bring out the bad and people as well and but I'm just so thankful that we do have the medical system that we have in the US and we have true doctors and trude nurses who truly care that they're not just in it for the money that they're willing to work the long hours and put themselves on the front lines that as president trump has said multiple times. These are our soldiers in the front lines of a war against an invisible enemy and we definitely need to be supporting them in and giving them the VAC leads. They deserve what they're doing and and just to to wrap the topic but the Bible tells us that this is exactly what we should be doing. I Peter Four. Four ten says just as each one has received a gift. Use it to serve others as good stewards of the varied grace of God..

"It's dangerous regardless I understand. There are few things more dramatic than the calving of a new iceberg. So might be completely off base here. Yeah so over. I think we both liked the movie and would recommend it. Yeah Yeah I would definitely recommend it particularly in this time of home schooling I think it is a very family appropriate movie I don't remember any bad language and there certainly wasn't any any adult situations it. Does you know it. It does feature death as a main theme. Even though it doesn't really picture show it. Yeah Yeah so you know. Younger children would probably need some extra discussion with it but I think the this is the exact kind of history that we we risk repeating if we do not remember it and so I if I still had kids at home during home school. This is the kind of movie that I would use for that and And discuss stuff like the the epidemic and the the people. It's it's got historical context and we actually discovered in researching for this episode. That there is actually a lot of information on the web about The true story about similar in Togo and Balto and the in that whole run. So there's lots of ways you can tie that into a history lesson And of course we do encourage you always to look up. Plugged IN DOT COM and check out their review because they often will see issues with a movie that we don't see 'cause we don't are not nearly as sensitive as they are so do check out what they have to say about it and In case you are concerned about showing it to your family but it is a rated. Pg movie so it is pretty clean and From a story standpoint and the fact that it's not it's telling true history. I think we can say we. Highly recommend it. Yep agree so you wanted to talk briefly about a use of animals in as I guess. Workable or yeah. Livestock Work Animals Animals in general and the reason is let me lay this out real quick. I am a dog lover. I have my family has had a dog one or more dogs for every year of my life. The only time that I have not personally had a dog in the household is when I was single and unmarried. So we'RE TALKING SHAPE. Eighty nine through ninety two But my family still had dogs and and I would visit them anyway. Regardless too much information I now live in the Hampton roads region. Virginia I live in Virginia Beach. Men Right next door to us as Norfolk which is the home of pita the people for the ethical treatment of animals and pita and I have some Rather strong disagreements on philosophy and theology There's this theology of worshiping creation and they hold to a philosophy that animals are every bit as important and as worthy of consideration and respect as human beings are which has an element of truth to it. Because it's part of creation But it in the end it simply is not true if you come down to having to choose to save a dog or a person you save a person every time. Yeah and you know this is coming from. It's my two. Dogs are both very important to me. We love him. We have a sixteen year old cocker Spaniel and a seven year. Old Mutt and they. They are members of my family. But they're not people they're animals. They're not made in the image of God but they are part of God's creation and where called to be proper stewards of all creation and that means if necessary using the animals of that creation to serve God others all the way up to and including death if necessary and the if necessary part is where the stewardship comes in and at a big part of movie. Do you are convinced by the filmmakers. That Togo is Not Going to survive the Ron and I want to be clear there too. I specifically once we talked about doing this movie. I had to willfully avoid looking Toko because I had never heard of him before you mentioned it and I didn't want to ruin the movie I wanted. I wanted to be surprised by by that. It's pretty rare that we get a history topic. I don't know anything about so. Yeah Yeah it's I. I mean I knew I knew the story of Balto obviously I knew about the the. The dog sled consist this. This is the basis for the identity. Fraud right you know. It's I I knew. Bits and pieces of it. But I'd never heard the name Togo and if you go into it with that firm of mine like I. Did you spend a lot of a lot of time thinking? Oh is this. Is this the scene where he dies actually? My wife came into the room and said is is he going to die and I said Yeah I think so she left. Yeah she didn't want to watch it. Yeah then it's like fifteen minutes more. The movie The dogs just not dying so bad at the end. I was like oh I sent her out of really good senior all because I thought the dog was GonNa die. I wanted to call have some scripture because as Christians we are guided by the word of God which is how. God communicates communicates to us in this day and age and We are called to be fair even to the animals of creation Deuteronomy Twenty five four tells us do not muzzle an ox. While at treads out the green. And if you don't know if you don't know what that means picture two oxen yoked to spindle that just spins around and And these two oxen they just or four ochsner however many half they just They walk in a a trough that has green in it. And what that does is it breaks up the grain at breaks the The Chaff and the weed apart so that the people can then scoop up the green and put it on sheets and then shake out the grain so that the chaff has blown away in the wheat. The heavy wheat remains and Deuteronomy twenty. Five four tells us don't muscle that don't prevent the ox from eating the grain because it's doing all the work so it tells us to be fair. A lot of people use that scripture. Also as a means of that you know. Basically the workman is worth is higher. So you don't yet. It's a very broad broad. I it can be applied in a lot of different ways. Yeah it's which is one of the great things about scripture is because you know this I twenty five four Deuteronomy Twenty Four. It doesn't exist alone And it can be tied to so many other verses that that expand the the word of God in ways that we are constantly discovering for ourselves. So we're called to be responsible about creation and in proverbs twelve ten. It says the righteous cares about his animal's health. But even the merciful acts of the wicked or curl and we should all be striving to be righteous. And of course you know these animals are all our responsibility and I know we have talked about this one before Genesis one twenty six then God set let us make man in our image according to our likeness. They will ruled fish of the sea. The birds of the sky the livestock the whole earth and the creatures that crawl on the earth so these animals are all our responsibility and stewardship and we are called to use them in the fulfillment of God's Commandments. And you know the two Greatest Commandments. Love the Lord your God with all your soul and love your neighbors yourself so I just wanted to throw this all out there and I want to cap it off in tight back to the movie because there's a quote near the beginning of the movie which didn't make it under our notes but it's between constance and Sepla where she's demanding that he not take Togo on this run because Toko old. He's twelve years old and she's afraid that he won't survive it and quite frankly turns on her and he says. Do you want me to return. Because if I don't take Togo there's a high chance that I won't make it back. And I need Togo to survive this trip. And so there you know. He loves Togo as much as she does. But he understood the limitations of the at the rest of the team and that if he didn't have a good lead dog on this very dangerous trip there was a high likelihood that he wouldn't make it back and so that was him. You know being truthful about his need for his work animals to be dependable and trustworthy on a dangerous trail and that it was a choice between the dog's life in his own. And you know it's a I didn't remember it until you mentioned it. But there is a scene where he he can't see anymore set Kenzi anymore and he says he tells Togo. Take us to the way point. 'cause they they've done this run you know before. So Togo knows where to go but Togo he doesn't. I don't have any reason to think that that didn't happen. But no-go saved sex life and the serum. Yes if they did not survive the run it was death sentence for everybody in nome. That was sick and so it was definitely a situation where it wasn't just one life in the balance or even the lives of the dogs and the balance it was the life of people that were dying of. Diptheria in June yet children. Yeah which brings us to our our first real major theme that we wanted to talk about which is corn team. Because that's what we're in right now. We're suffering a worldwide pandemic of something like nobody's ever really seen before I don't I don't even think the Spanish flu and the mid nineteen eighteen hit the level that this is hitting worldwide. And just as I mean not necessarily in deaths but in the the way it's affecting every nation it's like we've become so open as an international community that once it POPs up somewhere it it ends up being everywhere and it's just flabbergasting to see how many countries now have cases of of of Co Co vid nineteen which I've actually was watching an article. I'm saying that wrong. It's actually cove nineteen because Really See yes. Co v stands for Corona virus in nineteen the type so. I think everybody's been saying you're wrong but anyway. Yeah yeah so as for those of you who. Maybe don't follow our facebook page or group. You may not have known that as soon as we finished. Our recording of Emma is literally the day after we recorded our last episode on the movie Emma. Tim came down with the corona virus. So you WanNa talk about that a little bit. Yeah so you know. A lot of people have drawn comparisons between co V. I D. Nineteen.

"Those of you who've maybe not seeing the movie. The story of Togo is not one that we can really spoil. Because it's a story that has been told many times it comes right. Outta history two hundred years old. Yeah so it's about the great sermon of a dome. Nome Alaska happened in. What was the date of that? It was nineteen twenty five. There are lots of movies done. There is another and then the famous one with Balto yes. There was a Disney movie with Balto There that just last year. There was another theatrical release which I understand. I haven't seen it myself but I understand. It was a big dud was called the great Alaskan race which actually featured the story of Togo over the story of Balto but it was not a very good movie from what I understand. So we're going to review Togo. Not The great Alaskan race because neither of us have seen the great Alaskan race. And I think Tokyo's probably a much better movie. I don't think either of us are going to be able to see the great Alaskan race since we can't find it. It is a little difficult to find. I did look for it and I wasn't quite willing to pay rental prices so I couldn't find it anywhere where I didn't have to pay streaming rental prices so Balto is the name of the dog. Everybody remembers but this movie is about Togo. The lesser known dog. Who actually did the most amount of work in the serum run and I had never heard of him before watching the movie and it was a good movie. I Love dog movies. Love true stories so this one kind of ticked all the boxes for me. This was a very well done movie the Acting Direction and effects were very impressive for a made for streaming movie which it was made for streaming and above all my probably biggest happiness with the movie. Or what I thought was best done of the movie was the casting was very well. Done William Defoe plays SEPLA and if you see their faces side by side. They couldn't have casted him better. He definitely looks like the Leonard Sample of from history. The pictures we have of them. Yeah so those are my initial first impressions. Quickly run off. Do you want to talk about your? Yeah Yeah I enjoyed the movie but I I had some qualms with it it minor minor qualms really this was a. It was an enjoyable movie. It was a powerful movie to be sure but I thought it was a bit too heavy in the dialogue department. There seems like every single line was written to be quote worthy and I might just be complaining because you know I was literally writing every single line into my notes. So that's why you didn't like it. It makes you. You had to take note. It made me work hard. Yeah it's a serious movie about a very very serious subject and the all the humor of which there was not enough in my mind to balance but all the humor was centered around Togo. The back story of Togo. Yeah the back story of him growing up and everything but that might have been. Actually you know creative choice. A conscious creative choice because the movie. Hey let's face it. It's about Togo. Yeah I just. I felt like we could've used a little more. Levity I did enjoy the the banter between constance and set about. That's what I get for Marianne Belgian. That's what I get for marrying a Norwegian. Yeah are the comment that she made. When he first came back that she had her many lovers that she had to keep happy while they're exactly they're obviously. Yeah obviously well committed couple so it was obviously just a running joke but it was really funny speaking which I really appreciated the portrayal of the characters as real complicated people with real complicated feelings. You could see it in the faces and you could hear in the way they deliver their lines and in so many of the characters and we're not just talking the main ones of of constants here. We're talking the doctor and the mayor and even a couple of the other guys in the in the opening town meetings seen. Yeah and and the way stations in the the the waste. Yeah the the new it husband and wife team really really touched me in the fails type thing. Yeah the way they delivered the lines but the one I think did the best job was Julianne. Nicholson who I recognized from law and order criminal intent and she did such a good job playing constance. Sex wife the way she delivered the lines and the way she communicated with the expressions on her face. It was so subtle yet it did such a job obviously as streaming movie. It's not eligible for an Oscar. Is it? I don't know I don't know regardless. I think she deserves an award for her job in it. Yeah I liked. How and not just Togo. But Togo really drove it home for me. As far as recent movies I like the portrayal of the strong community and traditional values Even though Hollywood portrayals like that do tend to lawless into a a sense of the good old days when really the girl days really were not all that good People were just as as sinful and just as liable to lie cheat and steal as they are today. They're just better at hiding it. Yeah exactly and the only other comment I had.

"The Great State of Kentucky and yours in the Great State of Virginia So we're not Su- grease well we're not breaking quarantine that's the point and actually if you WANNA get specific it's not even a state it's Commonwealth so as Kentucky Amazingly is it really. I didn't know that Yes yes. Kentucky is also a Commonwealth. I don't silly commonwealths no clue so we decided for this particular episode that we would do something streaming because neither of us can get to a theater and the theaters are closed. And since we're quarantining at home we figured we'd hit the streaming services and pick out a movie Hopefully that other people have had the opportunity to see. Toko has been airing on Disney. Plus since the end of December I believe and it's A good family friendly movie. There's nothing in it seriously. Bad So It's one that we can share without any qualms though I think probably most stuff on Disney pluses fairly family friendly on Wednesday that across the board because Disney is not necessarily as a company as family friendly as Christians would like them to be. But that's for sure. Yeah in this case. This movie is a pretty decent. The original music for Togo is by mark. Isham very beautiful has lots of strings. There's part of it. That reminds me of the intro piece from the movie arrival which we did a review. One was two years ago time flies. I guess it was the there. Was this really pretty string. Piece that played at the beginning of arrival and very thoughtful. Very pretty portions of the score. That.

F You know post race stuff like that so you know it's good horses which is get up every day and do this force. The you know have horses than move forward young horses Oaks Derby British Cup type horses what you're looking for so it definitely makes getting up a little easier. I promise you that yeah and you've been around so many good ones but certainly British. Idiom is looking being the part at this point in her career and let's remind people. This was only her second career start. She's now a perfect two for two after breaking her maiden at Saratoga back in the middle of August. It look back on that race from yesterday she she won very impressively very easily. Share your thoughts on the performance. I I mean it it. was you know to think he was going to go over and perform like that no way. I mean you know she. She just she just blew just spectacular performance and you know watching watching the race I mean broke with higher did a great job of keeping up in the race not necessarily on the League exactly what you like to see setting off a couple of horses a relatively you you know reasonable pace the backside. I think he was laying fourth and I looked at my sister and I said she's in a perfect spot. I mean she's got no excuse from here and then when she brings it up to the leaders eaters to three eighths. Kinda started looking at some of the horses behind us like I think she's got these in front of her when she's come up to fairly I think you can go buy these and then obviously I was kinda looking for perfect perfect alibi and szucs Philly and I saw so perfect alibi was kind of interesting you know if she responds when heavier ask this things over and she did and you know the only thing I told you can't tell the guy I don't give them any instructions at all jocks but the only thing I told him I said it's a short wire so don't don't you know short stretch. Yeah I wire so just when you turn for home ever position and he did just that she responded well. It was very very impressive race. Did you know this philly could be this good in this caliber when you first laid eyes on her no really well not when I first laid eyes on that yeah you have to go through several steps. You know obviously months and months of preparation to really get a line on we had this. Philly keeneland England then we moved into this summer and she was really stepping for stepping up and you know acting like she was a good horse we breeze brought her to Churchill with the intent of running her at Saratoga and Yep. We just left our church. I I can't remember exactly how it was about just her last work before she ran at Saratoga. was from the gate at Churchill she'll and thought you know this phillies going to be awfully tough at Saratoga auction race. We'd like to a lot so and you know come to find find out. It was like that morning. There was a buzz I was actually at Churchill today. She broke her maiden Air Togo but there was a little buzz kept hearing like you know they're stranded like horses turning like Susan. I like four or five of them in there and you know she. I think lots of times like you know I thought she would have been down a little more and she wasn't. I just think it was a you know a lot of people like horses in the race and the silly it was second obviously came back and broke her maiden. Belmont which was a positive You know just a couple of weeks ago so I uh I think it was even though it was restricted maiden race it was decent strong maiden races well so she received a big figure out of it to that. That was the one thing that Japan Academy Rag Number. You know a couple of days later and I thought you know she moves forward off that you know she's a she's a serious horse. She obviously did it. Just took us a while to get her back to the races we point for the Pocahontas and she the week before she breezed in the breeze was just okay and We've put a blood on her blood worker blitz count. Where's off a little bit so we just decided to skip the Pocahontas in point for talking with trainer Brag Cox Looking back on yesterday's big win in the grade. One DARLIE also vitek was British idiom. She is now punched her ticket to the Breeder's cup juvenile fillies which will be held at Santa Anita in Arcadia California about well one month from today. Hey we'll be breeders cup Saturday Brad. What do you do now over the next four weeks to make sure that she stays in peak form and she's ready to fire her best shot in the Breeders Cup. Well just you know as of right. Now you know I believe we have a plane scheduled to go out on Tuesday before so that's the twenty ninth we'll just go out then with whatever we have that's earn whatever earn their way to the Breeders Cup and you know just who works. I think you know nothing fancy. I mean you know she got a lot out of yesterday's yesterday's race being the second career start and you know just hoping she comes out of in good shape so far so good she scoped great. Last night looked good last night. Put her to bed and she looked at this morning. So you know Oh everything's positive with her will to this point and you know like I said we'll bring her back to Churchill worker twice and then off to California to before as long as everything goes well when you get an opportunity unity to maybe add a couple more grade wants to your resume later today you have Juliette Fox Trot going in the grade one first lady here at Keeneland and then you'll send out in the Joe Hirsch Turf Classic at Belmont Park. You'll send out arc low in there so let's start with Juliet Fox Trot. Tell me a little bit about her really Nice Philly. I mean it took a really tough being California. Last time we got was beaten by. I think the two thousand eighteen races and the silica so I mean I think right if the wires the only time she was in front on of us we got back in front of her past the wiring dot great really nice really think the world ever very very classy filly to deal with in just just real real nice philly that train them and just very straightforward. Does everything alleged WanNa see a horse do of the mornings and obviously the afternoons as well since she's been here in North America America and just amazing philly not real big. I mean she she's. She's a beautiful really beautiful. I- owner beautiful head up but it's not a big big philly typical. I think you know think cut back to a mile. I think is a I think she can do anything between a mile. Maybe even a mile and a quarter anything in there but I always like a horse that you know in a mile in eighth last time cutting back to the mile today. I think a positive that she drew well in the race. looks like on paper. There's speed I'm hoping she can kind of break settle kind of shut off a little bit going into the first turning up the backside and she does that she'll be. She'll be very very competitive today. I think a lot of this feeling. I think she she some you know. Hopefully can you know get some great one placing. Maybe hopefully a great one win and I think you know. I think the plan right now to raise their next year and I really think she's got had a big feature. You know it's interesting you talk about the mile and an eighth cutting back to a mile later on this afternoon and how much you like that move. I've heard other people talk about horses making that can't move to why can that be so successful. I guess it's just a fitness thing I mean I know. We've had the feeling training all year but it's a lot angles and racing that you know you. Can you know I. I sometimes like you know You don't even if a horse runs well on the dirt going to turf. It's almost like you trick them a little bit. You know it's it's and you know I. It just felt like you can have a little more confidence with your shortening horse up as opposed to stretching now now 'cause you know the further you go. I guess the unknown but you know she performed well at a model at Qinglin this spring so we know she can do it. She didn't really shut off and rate that well that day wish you would have you know relax a little more but it was a first start off a long layoff for a long time. I asked her to run a little bit earlier and she was just kind of on the go like I said from off burning fresh off the layoff but she she's moved forward and she responds to what the routers warrant They had three different jobs under this year. You know they've all got along with her. Well so I think for on obviously knows Schroeder twice before been able to get her. They're both times so hopefully like I said if she can get take a trip and relax a little bit early. She'll be tough yeah. You've had her for four starts now. In North America her first one as you alluded to is keen last April after she campaign in in her native Great Britain when you get a horse like that Brad that comes in from overseas.
Can the Buffalo Bills Put on a Respectable Show Against the Patriots?
"Ken the three in Buffalo Bills on clear not win against the Patriots but can they put up a respectable respectable competitive showing against the Patriots and specifically it can be put a dent in that patriots defense because despite how weak the Patriots schedule has been so far the defense of achievements are getting to the point. We're going to have to start talking about all time defensive metrics I would love for that to stop as quickly as possible right. I think most us what other than you and Kyle I think it's wonderful and we're still mad at gunner for ruining our touchdown. Streak touchdown streak was gone now. This is a nice is test of Jiaxuan. What's what's he got yeah? It doesn't have to be amazing but it's like what are you. This is a nice moment for you. Let's see it. The bills are Oh definitely one of the most pleasant surprises of the season right now much like the Patriots schedule has been week so the Patriots have beaten sealers dolphins jets the bills were beaten the jets the giants and the angles not exactly like stiff competition there on either side. I don't think anyone really thinks the bills are GonNa win but it's just a question of can they hang him because if they can give him what the rest of their schedule is the rest of the way they're in line for a potential eight or nine win season which means they're in line for potential wild card berth and a playoff spot and how they perform this week against the Patriots feels like the kind of game. That's going to tell tell us about what they're capable of the rest of the way well there's only six above five hundred. AFC teams right now and then if you look at the one and two hundred team says Roland Alina two possible playoff teams ram so they have a really good chance to make the playoffs regardless of what happens the other thing is of course this game is in Buffalo. Tom Brady has not had great games on the Brady scale and buffalo in recent years but more importantly what happens when the the Patriots play in Buffalo Bills Fans third dildos onto the field okay. This is now a proud long running tradition we had one in two thousand sixteen one and two thousand seventeen a belief three three in two thousand and fulfill Togo have all sorts of questions from people. How are they smuggling them in folks news for you? The whole point of a Dildo is that you can stick it places theraworx okay. We'll smoke the bed. Will we see more dildos. Turn onto the field or touchdowns from the bills offense against the Patriots defense. That's one of the things I'll I would say again I would say the dildos are like one and a half favorites over the touchdowns. Let's say at least for the four Dodo game board and I would say they're one and a half touchdowns possible for them so maybe there to nap point dildo favorites. I love it. I love it. The over under for the actual game is what forty two kyle. I'm I'm laying you two and a half though those against the bills touchdowns would do you WanNa take touchdowns touchdowns or four dildos for Tilda. Take the dildos Kyle. That's a lot for I'll take. She said I'll take four right cast `priority here until gave Kyle taking the DILDOS did here

Drama in the Toy Industry
"Joining me in studio today from 'em funds. Bill Barker, thanks for being here. Thanks for having me. We're gonna talk are vs. We're gonna talk toys because we've got some legitimate drama in the toy industry. We're going to start with Dobie. I feel like almost any business. That's in the cloud business is doing well that's not a knock adobe in their management. But, you know, adobe second quarter revenue was up twenty five percent. Their guidance was a little weaker than I think some analysts were looking for. But that's not stopping the stock. It's up another four percent today. Yeah, it is continuing to do a great job growing compounding year-over-year. It's on a pretty good five year on, I would say the segments digital media was up twenty two percent digital experience thirty four percent publishing twelve percent. So all three of the major parts of the company growing at better or do significantly better than, you know, double digit range. Do you know historically, if nobody is an acquisitive company, it does seem like obviously, you've got behemoths out there like Microsoft and Amazon just a name to who are in the cloud business it, I mean you know, my joke at the top aside they're definitely some smaller players, and I don't know if part of what has fueled adobe for the past few years is. Being strategic with smaller acquisitions and, and just sort of bringing them into the fault. Yeah. It's enlarge part through acquisitions in two thousand eighteen which for those who can't do math was last year. You look confused for. Of the two of us in the room you're better at math than I am. Yes. That's fair. No last year. Yeah. One year difference magenta and Marquette auto. I don't know that I'm even pronouncing Marquette to marquee, to maybe were acquired, and so they've been well, integrated into the platform and are contributing to that twenty five percent annual growth, little harder to grow window at the size that adobe is at something approaching twenty five percent without making some good acquisitions, even in the, you know, given how much businesses moving to the cloud, even so that this that kind of growth needs needs some acquisitions in most cases, do you think that's why the guidance was maybe a little weaker than people were expecting just because there's only so much? You wanna telegraph what you're going to be doing when it comes to acquisitions, well, they have a history of being a pretty conservative with their guidance. So I think that as you can tell from the market's reaction today, basically. People are blowing that off. Nobody believes them. Yeah. That's nice. They're, they're giving some conservative guidance, and we know that given their history. And this is the kind of thing that you only, you know, chief over time is the belief by the market that, oh, these guys are going to do better than they're saying. Let's move onto winnebago. Third quarter reports seemed to be a little bit of a mixed bag, although the profit margins appear to be improving for winnebago. And typically, when we talk about the RV industry, more more often than not you. And I are talking about Thor industries, not. Not winnebago but went Bego seems to be doing a pretty nice job of late. Yeah. Winnebago, which is the name that people know best for arby's and is best known for the motorhomes portion of the business. And so the totals side of the business is larger for the industry than the motorhomes motor home is the, you know, the large vehicle bus, like structure where the housing unit is all part of the, the motor vehicle, and then the Togo's where you hit something onto the back of, of your vehicle and winnebago made a good acquisition. Couple years ago, grand design, which is a fast growing towell and winnebago really didn't have much going on prior to that in the total space. So as that part of the industry has been growing winnebago is now. And. Active participant in, in that growth and actually capturing market share in large part from Thor. So you've got sore, which is the largest RV maker, just made a major acquisition in Europe, which closed last quarter, and then you've got forest river, which is owned by Berkshire Hathaway those two are, are far larger than when a Bego, which has now grown to about ten percent of the market. And then they're few scattered players that are not especially meaningful beyond that. But when Bago also has done, what a lot of in players in the industry are doing which is diversifying into the marine segment. They quired Chris craft, which is probably known to too many as designer beautiful wooden boats that are sort of timeless and elegant, and that's a good thing to do is to have some diversification, because the RV industry are. Into a lot of trouble last year when dealers overstocked early in two thousand eighteen and a year later, they're still working down the overstocking. And so when obey goes numbers on their face are not great. But they are pointing to some brighter days ahead as everybody in the RV space has been doing for a while. The acquisition that Thorne made that you mentioned in Europe. Is is that a diversification play or do they or is there, some RV maker in your like I? In large part because of where I live, when I think of RV's I just think of, you know, RV's here in America. I don't necessarily think of Europe as necessarily big market, but I'm, I'm happy to be proven wrong on that. Well, they're, they're more in the smaller vehicles, and you see in the US there, you know, in many parts of Europe, smaller roads and not quite the car culture that we have, but they are a big camping culture. And so they're more sort of camper sized things. And yeah, there's a decent decent part of, of the market that you can capture there. It is diversification thing for Thor. And it's a good time to diversify given the, you know issues with the inventory for arby's here, but getting back to winnebago, they're pointing to, again, good growth in the TOA bowls from the grand design, and motorhomes. Itself lagged I think there were off sales or about thirty some percent year year which couple years ago that would have been disastrous for winnebago when they had not yet acquired a tow -able in an a marine unit. It's not. I mean for as well known as the winnebago brand is, this is not a big company. I think it's like one in a quarter billion in market cap, so but it's nice to see that. They're both diversifying their revenue stream and because of that starting to improve their financial picture. Yeah. They are unlike sore treating sort of reasonably close to their fifty two week high. I think not you know not not right at the fifty two week high, but they're not not a long ways off Thorpe still basically cut in half from from where it was about eighteen months ago.

"It's it's I guess if you need if you need a place where it's really a sign of American geographical ignorance about the world in general, but about Africa in particular that and also a lot of the names of countries in Africa changed in the twentieth century. So all of the names of countries that my mother memorized in school in nineteen forty four. There's no more bet you on a land lot of a lot of that went away. Right. Right. So there is enough confusion that it feels like you could throw a Monday in there and people and it's plausible, right? There are other parts of the world where that happens we add central European countries sometime if you put. Zone at the end of any word, basically, you could make a new country, right? Little little order attain. His Dan and then little little Latin American countries, you can make up a Caribbean island without too much trouble or some kind of troubled banana Republican Central America these invented for fictional purposes. All the time, and it's a little bit. Now that I'm if I'm going to be woke about it's a little problematic because you're essentially creating some kind of composite you're saying that all these countries are about the same. So here's San Christo ball. You know, it's like all the other ones, you know, about enjoy well, west Africa, and these countries of Liberia coat of wa Ghana Togo Benin, and especially Nigeria. They were also the they were the locale of the majority of the slave trade. So maybe on jumping ahead. But does that mean the population that became the ancestors of today's large African American population have some of this twi-? Win tendency. I don't think that that is documented. No. And in fact, even within Nigeria. Much greater portion of the transatlantic slave trade came out of the Igbo people rather than out of the Uruba people and twins are much more common within the Aruba than they are the Igbo. So it's not just being from Nigeria. Doesn't mean it varies by tribe. So within geria-, which is a large country and populous country, it has on this two hundred million people now more than any other country in Africa. And though it has the largest city in Africa in the form of logos. Which I hear is maybe not a fun place to visit. It's growing even still, but within Nigeria there are over five hundred ethnic groups and over five hundred languages spoken while so Nigeria itself is the product of a colonial administration on the part of the British who came in and said, well, this is all very complicated, all these different groups. So why don't we draw a line around them hither? And really the line is going to be. Goes up till what the French claim right goes up to how far the railroad went. It's not even a best guess as to what fits culture or anything. Right. John. Do you have a website?.
