Fresh update on "thomas " discussed on Bloomberg Law
"Take effect and apparently that's having an effect and Democrats are very worried about what the court is likely to do going forward There was some previous drop before among Republicans on the court but now it's both sides So are we seeing you mentioned that the Democrats are losing confidence in the court Are we seeing converse jump in support for the court from Republicans No not at all There was a small bump in this market poll a small bump up What actually happened was that in an earlier round the court dropped significantly basically over the course of the last Supreme Court term up until July of this year And that's even though the court had become more conservative because Amy Coney Barrett had joined the court taking the place of Ruth Bader Ginsburg A little harder to say exactly why that is Charles Franklin is the director of the marquette poll talked about maybe it's a Republicans that once since they've lost the presidency we're kind of losing all institutions we're sort of falling from favor among Republicans and the Supreme Court It's part of that It may also be that some Republicans wanted the court to move more strongly in a conservative direction than it already has for example the court did not intervene to help Donald Trump out in his bid to overturn the election results And it may be we don't know for sure It may be that that was one of the things that disappointed Republicans and caused a drop in the approval rating In recent days we've heard publicly from justice Barrett as well as justices clarence Thomas on one side of the spectrum and Stephen breyer on the other Sounding as though they really want to take pains to assure people that the high court isn't driven by politics How mindful are the justices themselves of the idea that their decisions may be viewed through a political lens It sure seems like they're very mindful Now at least in the case of justice breyer this is something he's been talking about for years and years Obviously justice Barrett is a new justice Hers was somewhat ironic her statement that the court is not a partisan institution She did that at an event in Kentucky with Mitch McConnell the second minority leader who made sure she got confirmed right alongside her In fact he introduced her So kind of an odd setting to be claiming that the court is not a partisan institution Unquestionably all the justices see what's happening in terms of public approval and there's also the polls also show that the court is increasingly seeing the court as being more partisan and political And the justices see that They say over and over that's not how we do our jobs And they are trying to push back as best they can or at least to some degree they're trying to push back against that perception Of course it's been difficult to separate politics from the Supreme Court for quite some time Where would you say the level of at least public perception of politicization of the court is compared to past high courts It is growing the market Paul only goes back a couple of years but it's at the highest level than it has been Now it's still less than half of the question is does the court decide cases on politics are on the law And about 39% said mainly on politics So that's under 50% but still pretty high for the court The court has had other periods where people thought of it as being very political Bush vigor is an obvious example Here it's more of a series of things A lot of which are kind of outside the court's control It is the manner in which justices have been nominated to the court the whole Merrick Garland Republican and refusal to allow a vote there the death of justice Ginsburg the push to get Republican push to get Amy Coney Barrett on the court Those have contributed to the perception of the quarters being partisan And then of course a number of Supreme Court cases along the way involving election law and voting and dealing with very very political issues Bloomberg news Supreme Court reporter Greg Stewart Greg stay with us coming up next we're going to be talking about maybe the one of the most politically freighted cases coming up on this Supreme Court term That would be the abortion challenge out of Mississippi You're listening to Bloomberg law I'm Nathan Hager sitting in for June grosso this week It's 13 minutes past the hour and this is where you learn Asset managers who Dad how do airplanes fly What's in this box Is this too good for climbing How are babies made What is this thing do Kids are curious about everything including guns talking to them about gun safety in your.

In in an article published an integrative psychiatry, 1991 reported that There is an increasing body of evidence indicating that aluminum Is more than just an innocent bystander in the cerebral neurons. So think brain of Alzheimer's to be safe air on the side of caution and avoid cooking with aluminum pans and replace your aluminum foil with parchment paper. And for the love of Pete No Tums. Thomas Thomas, Tom's You're just doing Aluminum Edition. Yes, Mel agreed. Um, so before break we were kind of talking about processed carbs and you know them sneaking back into the diet and how we both are kind of seeing that people struggle with that in clinic. But I just want to say that the relationship between poor blood sugar control and Alzheimer's disease is so strong that researchers are now calling Alzheimer's type. Three diabetes. And so what does that really mean? You know, what does that mean? It means the higher the blood sugars. The more it affects the brain and memory, whole host of symptoms and problems. Eggs come from high blood sugars. It's a big deal. Now. I want to share a study from the Mayo Clinic published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease. This study looked at 1230, Minnesota residents in Olmstead County and found that those who got most of their calories from pasta rice Read and other processed carbs had the higher risk of Alzheimer's. While people who loaded up on protein I'm talking protein, anything with a face people who loaded up on protein. At a 21% lower risk. And though than those following a and those I'm sorry, let me reiterate that while people who loaded up on protein had a 21% lower risk, and those following a high fat diet or at a 42% lower risk, Wow. Yep. The lead epidemic epidemiologist said all fats seem to be good for the brain. But excess carbs and sugar may affect blood vessels in the brain. Or even increase the development of amyloid plaque. Well, what is that? Yeah, What is that? So I actually looked that up because I mean, I kind of understood, but I wanted to kind of Be able to tell our listeners what's an amyloid plaque? So those are plaques that form in the spaces between nerve cells, and they're thought to play a central role in Alzheimer's disease. So think it's like they kind of clog up your brain space nerd, your nervous system, brain spaces like plaque in the brain. Yeah, Nobody wants that. Yeah, So it's um and it first develops and areas in the brain.

interview With Thomas Bienert
"Well hello everyone and welcome to another podcast from frames magazine. My name is scott olsen. And today i am thrilled. I am really excited to talk to thomas. Thomas has a long and distinguished career in photography is a very active member of the frames community. And i am looking forward to this conversation. Thomas good morning hi scott. I should tell everybody that as we're recording this i am sitting in the mid west of the united states and you are in germany. How is photography life and covid and life in germany these days. yes. I think like most of the countries. It's a much more difficult to work as much more difficult. Because you have to take care of yourself take care of the people you work with. So we're all happy when we're through with that. I think we are all looking forward. I think there's to be an explosion of taga fy once the vaccine comes out and we can start moving around again. I'm going to tell everybody something from your website here in describing who you are mean. I'm just gonna read what you wrote. Because i think this is wonderful. You say that you grew up between cow pastures and potato fields in the lower rhine. You studied visual communication and the cosmopolitan city of krefeld as a designer. When miami vice was still a television series showing your age there. Thomas you have sold herbal liquor. Lipsticks and bank loans as creative director in an advertising firm and you have painted drawn written composed made music filmed and photographed and photographed and photographed. You say that inbetween you've been happily married helped to children improve the world and always made art in your head. I think that is just fantastic. Thomas before we get into your work which for many reasons. I find personally compelling tell me how you got started. Tell me about you know being a five year old with your first camera or however this came into your life. My father worked as a painter so he painted houses not not an art painter but he wanted to be an artist but so he didn't make it so he was but he was always interested in photography and he had an old camera which had damaged light meter and he'd tried to tell me how to take pictures. And as i do not get it. How i don't know The aperture and the shutter speed and you have to look at how the sun is is bright. It's aperture number eight something. I learned it by this. Because it's all it was all analog and it was all with film there was no digital Help at this camera end was very funny to receive the first photographs. You open the box and you have nearly ninety percent of that was crap to large. I learned the hard way. I'm really happy now to to work with digital cameras really. Oh absolutely but what is it about photography. That was appealing to you. Way back then. When i was young i didn't know it was just just the fun about it. What i found out later. Is that as i worked for many many years in advertising and i have a great knowledge about making films and conception of making films and we're thinking about music and all this what you need to make good commercial but there's not one thing that can capture emotion in a part of a second that is photography no music if you take music if you reduce it to just a part of a second. It will not get any emotion. The same with with film photography can can do it. You take you slice the time into a part of a second and you see a picture ended it catches you and this is what i found so interesting to find the right moment to to to something. Visualize that is maybe sometimes not all the time but sometimes it's only there for the pot of of a second that's amazing it's like magic.

Being a carer with Penny Wincer
"Penny tell us about your family my family here in London me on my two kids are my son opposite ten and Mrs Eight and offer is autistic and has learning difficulties and the rest of my family. All right. So. You had your children over here in England and went from your family. Let me and you become a single mom early on about five years ago said, the kids were three and five, and that is still around and he's he's with them every other weekend main Keira but that's not really only experience as a Keira So part of the reason I wrote the book about caring in general rather than just being a parent to a disabled child. was because it's not the first time I've been Akara I was a carrot to my mom when I was a teenager and I think it's when I started putting all of those pieces together when I had my son. It was funny. A few people have said Oh when he was diagnosed, you must be my aunt kind of Thomas Thomas can handle this. I was actually at first. It was kind of the opposite because I had looked someone else before and I knew how hard it was, and so I think at first I was a bit overwhelmed because this was like this was my child now. So this is forever I'm going to be. Supporting him in some way or another forever. I think in some ways, it was more overwhelming in the beginning but then quite quickly I realized I meant so much from my experience my mom and they were even though the two things are really different my mom. Had Depression and she died by suicide when I was twenty two and obviously they're really different situations but at the same time. There was a lot there had in common, and in fact, actually was when I went back to Australia a couple of years ago and I was catching up with A. Friend and she's one of my oldest friends in the world and we grew up in same street together apparent each other really well, and her mom has Alzheimer's and it's early onset. So it was probably about twelve thirteen years ago. So she's coming to the end stage is now and we would just having a catch up. and talking about days and. I couldn't stop off at how much there is in common between looking after a parent or child if you're looking for someone that has a cognitive impairment and so. Actually when I I'm just really interested in caring in general because we talk about parents over here looking after autistic child or or toppled down senior Muslim you know that and then there's people looking elderly. Parent or this to on we all have stuff in common. We all need a huge amount of support that we're getting from the government and from society, and there's often this common problem of not really up to speak about what's happening inside your house for lots of different reasons and I just thought that's that's my talk about I want to talk about caring. Both on a personal level, but also on a political level as val. So how old were you when you started looking off your mom? Then she was eleven when she started getting panic attacks and things like that. So it happened a bit gradually she was really well when I was young before then and then so between eleven and thirteen gradually got west, and by the time I was about thirteen she was. In and out of hospital and in bed for weeks at a time and just from then on, I just gradually took on more responsibility. But that's what's kind of interesting about it. Because people I didn't know what word I didn't know the word care when I, when I was teenager I didn't know that's what I was doing, and in fact, I think I was probably like fifty even heard the word young. And I think and it's interesting 'cause I. Didn't I didn't really talk about my experiences at the time with anyone outside of the house. Particularly if people knew what was going on, we had we did have a bit of support as a family, but I didn't really talk about with friends that didn't talk about it with openly with anyone I. Don't think my teachers school particularly new but I didn't I didn't have language talk about it and I think that's still a massive problem even much better at talking about depression and different mental illnesses now I think particularly. For the kids of people who have mental illnesses, it's really difficult for them to talk about I. think part of that's because it's not happening to you directly. It's somebody else but you massively affected by what's what's happening. So like for me, I think like a lot of people. Being, careless. Cap Someone WHO's dying o? Washing them fading them. Physical Health and of course, lots of people do that kind of caring. But carrying his sorry much broader than that and it can be providing emotion really huge amount of emotional sport somebody could be running much more financial support. It could be taking on extra responsibilities for them. So they can consider the energy something else or it can be lots of different things as a parent. Now, lot of my caring responsibilities. Having arguments with Farsi and going through. Extensive. Legal wrangles to get education and things like that. That says much of my experiences Akara as actually looking to my son is and so it's kind of carrying very broad and I think we sometimes talk about it in very narrow terms and so. I think why that's problematic is that it can take a really long time for Congress to identify to self identifies A. and. So they can be taking on more and more responsibility over years and years and years, and actually a guard. Or guards anyone else help until they are falling apart and having our own Ben out and having their own mental health problems because they can't cope with the responsibilities anymore.
Are you ok? How are you dealing with lock down life?
"Hello, and welcome to another episode of the gun show. I am your host. Am I gonNA wardner? Shall we go through some bullet points? It's mid week episode say why not and these bullet points focus on? Are you? Okay And I'm asking this question. Because early on in the year when things all over the world and I know that we have listeners everywhere. Things will really uncertain all over the globe and we were going into lockdown and covid nineteen was new and completely unknown and we were we were checking in with each other a lot we checked in with each other on this podcast over on instagram where I met him guns over in the facebook group the link to join us in the show notes. And I speak for myself. But I definitely found easing into lockdown easier than easing out I found the implementation of strict guidelines to be rigid framework within which I could work and understanding that these are rules that needed to be followed. I've felt pretty comfortable adapting to them. It felt like these the rules this is what you've got to stick to. You know I can do that, and admittedly it was probably easier for someone like me who worked to themselves works mostly from home and lives alone have dependents or anyone else that I have to really worry about me. So look down life wasn't really a world away from my regular life and my work and social literally went online and I used to face to face. I, started to do on video calls however. Easing out and picking up the pace again has definitely not been a smooth which made me wonder how you're dealing with it and yes. It might be great villas. They were all easing back into something that resembles what used to be normal but these are really big changes that we're dealing with and navigating for the first time so I ask you again all you. Okay. And that seriously in very genuinely because it's a question that we ask each other often. But how many times you honest when you answer how often do you instinctively reply I'm fine. Thank you or good. Thanks. How are you just immediately deflecting it putting onto the other person without even really checking in with how you feel that how many times have you ask someone? Hey, how are you are you? Can you find McCain however you and you realize that you're on the third round of asking so the how how you doing? October a few times. Maybe it's just me no paying attention anyway. So the concept of being. Okay. Why this stems from, this comes from a psychologist Thomas Thomas Harris and in therapy focuses on rather than a place of perfection. Place of what's comfortable what feels good enough so it prompted me to think well, what does okay feel like obviously, it's going to feel different for everybody. But if you era to for no good reason, if you're short tempered judgmental, perhaps you're feeling judged you're angry maybe it's you're showing signs at just not particularly well. Often, all of the time. or You just feel bleak like the outlook is just bleak and this could be an indicator that you're not okay and. That's okay. Tube. There are steps that can be taken but when lockdown began I, started the series feel-good habits and this was with the intention of putting out. The sort of helpful hints stretched isn't techniques that could help steer someone listening you my most excellent listeners away from a crappy mood towards a better one. And then what you're telling me, you're finding value in these compositions, which is wonderful. So they're going to keep coming at new. But I also just wanted to share in a broader sense. Some of the things you can look out for that might help you identify not only when you're doing. Okay. But when you slightly off kilter and the reason I wanted to do this is because I have previously as a lot of longtime listeners. No, I was a few years ago diagnosed with depression anxiety and since therapy and feel as though on the other side of those things although it's always a work in progress, you always field was the expression they using them recovery. It's always in the darkness during press ups doing pull ups like making so it can come back but anyway. I feel as though, I could have prevented those things the depression anxiety. From becoming a severe as they ended up becoming if I had asked myself if I had gone through this checklist that I'm about to share with you. Because it went unchecked for such a long time so that by the time. We got to the point where we got to. It was pretty drastic. Felt like it for me anyway, and so this is why I wanted to share this checklist with you. So the first thing is how he functioning and by this I mean the daily stuff you have to do laundry washing, ironing, vacuuming getting are getting ready in the morning even brushing your hair. Any of this stuff in itself feel like a chore to You or do you feel exhausted after you've done it. And I can remember I'm I'm laughing about it. Now 'cause what else what else can you do but when I was depressed and didn't know it Used to dread vacuuming my flat I really liked how high no I really liked how the look afterwards but I used to dread it because in my head I would think, right? Yeah. You've got to get the vacuum cleaner out and then I think, yeah, the vacuum cleaners quite heavy. Yeah and I think the I think the thing when it's long enough and so actually when hoover it doesn't actually really hurt my back and The cool doesn't reach from that plug socket to the far end of the war, which means I have to unplug it and re plug it in, and it's it's a bit of a fast go Goya and say by the time I actually got to doing it. I had so many barriers between me and the actual task that it had become something really really big in my hand. and. So the only way I ended up being able to get around that was to time it Kalamazoo take me to clean the flat live in Paris. It was six minutes

The state had argued to suspend the witness requirement because of the pandemic in the court argued that the requirements were not opposed by state officials, and that they maintain the status quo. Given that similar rules were used in June, legal analyst Jonathan Turley says this may be an indication of what's to come. This in many ways is the residual effect of the Bush v. Gore decision.

"It's a true income stream. Marty. Some companies will allow if you're if you're if you're over 59 behalf, they will allow you to roll some of that money out, sometimes even most, all of it into your own IRA, And it's a tax free rollover. And now the your own IRA, you can have, what? 56 7000 different choices and also, you can have that lifetime income plan. That everyone needs. We call it the growth protection income plan, and that's very important because into 401 k, you have growth. Do you have protection? Usually not Alicia go cash right exactly Have income? No, so it only meets one of the three. If you roll it into your own individual IRA, you can have all three growth when the money is in there. Hopefully it's going to share in the gains of the market. We don't want it exposed to the markets down sides. We have protection. And then we want to know at different ages into the future, because we don't know when we were really gonna retire or get laid off or or decide where we've had enough. So we want to know throughout our lifetime. If we retire this age, what kind of income could we get every single month for the restaurant life that will never go away. And our spouse would get that same income every single month for the rest of our life, Nor'wester her his or her life until both. You're not here anymore than whatever the balances of there's a balance left. It will go on to next of kin. How important is that, Marty? It's crucial on and that's one of the things that we see almost every day. I had a listener than today and he said, I do have a lot of options. And I said What about the safety portion? You're you're four years away from retirement. Well, that's why I've got most role of it invested in these bond funds inside my 401 k in his mind. Those bond funds were, you know, safe met the safety net, a safe place to have the money invested us. It's her. A lot of times, bond and bond funds. Not very rare been. Sometimes they'll have Justus much risk is a stock fund and he goes. How is that even possible Because interest rates go up? Bond prices go down. So asked anybody in 2008. That's where we got the double whammy. The stock market was going down. Interest rates were going up. There was no safe haven. It wasn't so you know, we don't know when there'd be another 2008. We have no idea showed up, but we want to be protected. In this case. I was talking to the listener. Do you understand that if we do have interest rates to go back up, you're going to see these bond funds go down in value. We consider that money at risk, and he was his eyes were his biggest silver dollars. He's like I didn't know that. But, yeah, thank goodness for coming in. There's a lot of misconceptions out there. I think you know on the show last week, we were talking about mutual funds and how a lot of people assume they're diversified. Just because of that name sounds like we're having a problem here, too, with safety and bonds, and I think that's why it's important to have these conversations with folks like you. You're saying Coach you've been in the A financial arena for more than 28 years. Thomas what we've done and I really have to take great satisfaction. This too, is Did you ever see the movie? 1917?

Former Amb. Gary Locke discusses China US relations
"U. U. S. S. China China relations relations continue continue to to deteriorate deteriorate with with president president trump trump threatening threatening more more sanctions sanctions and and China China apparently apparently cutting cutting back back further further on on agricultural agricultural imports imports Gary Gary Locke Locke served served as as US US ambassador ambassador to to Beijing Beijing under under president president Obama Obama before before that that he he was was governor governor of of Washington Washington investor investor like like is is now now senior senior adviser adviser to to David David Wright Wright and and Jermaine Jermaine I I asked asked the the pastor pastor if if relations relations between between the the United United States States and and China China are are as as bad bad as as they they looked looked relations relations are are very very very very bad bad right right now now it's it's getting getting worse worse the the latest latest salvo salvo of of walls walls the the only only taking taking away away the the the the special special status status that that Hong Hong Kong Kong has has previously previously that that could could impose impose tariffs tariffs on on all all products products that that are are coming coming out out of of Hong Hong Kong Kong and and they they make make it it harder harder for for residents residents of of Hong Hong Kong Kong you you can can visit visit the the United United States States unfortunately unfortunately trying trying to to get get at at the the the the policies policies of of all all China China in in terms terms of of not not respecting respecting the the one one country country two two systems systems the the autonomy autonomy that that the the Hong Hong Kong Kong has has previously previously enjoyed enjoyed these these types types of of actions actions back back hurt hurt the the people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong without without really really affecting affecting the the government government of of China China really really punishing punishing the the people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong who who have have really really been been protesting protesting for for greater greater democracy democracy and and freedom freedom so so this this is is really really going going to to hurt hurt the the people people of of the the very very pro pro democratic democratic people people of of of of Hong Hong Kong Kong and and perhaps perhaps while while sending sending a a message message to to mainland mainland China China may may not not really really hurt hurt China China itself itself well well it it has has to to take take us us back back a a bit bit in in history history back back in in ninety ninety seven seven there there was was an an agreement agreement entered entered into into by by China China as as part part of of Hong Hong Kong Kong coming coming back back to to head head away away from from Great Great Britain Britain is is it it just just clear clear they they violated violated that that agreement agreement and and perhaps perhaps more more important important are are there there any any remedies remedies for for violation violation agreement agreement well well played played ballgame ballgame the the report report you you bite bite out out properly properly to to Hong Hong Kong Kong at at least least to to the the with with twenty twenty more more years years or or so so and and China China of of course course is is upset upset that that Hong Hong Kong Kong has has not not passed passed some some security security laws laws it it is is it's it's supposed supposed to to have have a a baby baby but but years years ago ago and and so so tensions tensions have have been been very very poor poor quality quality and and there's there's a lot a lot of of protesting protesting just just last last year year over over the the coals coals old old toolbox toolbox traditions traditions of of people people charged charged with with crimes crimes one one of of the the that that being being sent sent back back to to other other countries countries including including the the mainland mainland China China courses courses with with the the confidence confidence in in the the rule rule of of law law it it tried tried that that people people could could be be prosecuted prosecuted on on trumped trumped up up charges charges in in the the if if they they are are living living in in Hong Hong Kong Kong maybe maybe because because they're they're all all wasting wasting dissent dissent about about the the policies policies you you disagree disagree openly openly occurred occurred with with the the policies policies of of China China criticizing criticizing the the Chinese Chinese government government that that they they could could then then be be extradited extradited to to the the mainland mainland to to face face prosecution prosecution so so these these are are really really tough tough issues issues and and again again on on China China is is I I think think the the holding holding itself itself in in the the world world if if it it takes takes away away the the autonomy autonomy of of Hong Hong Kong Kong and and certainly certainly will will not not help help in in trying trying to to reunify reunify Taiwan Taiwan because because the the people people of of Taiwan Taiwan will will say say how how can can we we ever ever trust trust the the maple maple at at Thomas Thomas is is that that they they might might have have to to maintain maintain the the democracy democracy that that is is very very very very strong strong on on Taiwan Taiwan we we have have the the largest largest economy economy in in the the world world the the United United States States the the second second largest largest China China we're we're gonna gonna have have to to figure figure out out a a way way to to deal deal with with one one another another one one way way or or the the other other can can you you see see a a path path forward forward to to a a constructive constructive engagement engagement with with China China going going forward forward because because I I have have to to say say China China has has not not had had a great a great track track record record of of complying complying with with its its grievance grievance over over the the years years going going all all the the way way back back to to the the WTO WTO I I think think that that the the world world stage stage and and and and and and all all the the other other countries countries which which share share but but China China does does business business has has operations operations as as investments investments and and and and is is a a trading trading partner partner with with all all of of those those countries countries didn't didn't work work with with the the United United States States in in confronting confronting China China United United States States doing doing it it alone alone actually actually hurts hurts Americans Americans actually actually benefits benefits many many of of our our allies allies well well they they have have the the same same concerns concerns this this terrible terrible trade trade war war between between China China United United States States barely barely makes makes American American products products more more expensive expensive in in China China and and so so the the Chinese Chinese the the buyers buyers will will block block you you know know purchased purchased something something from from Germany Germany Australia Australia or or Canada Canada because because it's it's so so much much cheaper cheaper well well those those countries countries have have some some of of the the circle circle I I have have many many of of the the same same concerns concerns about about the the trading trading policy policy the the economic economic policies policies the the lack lack of of intellectual intellectual protection protection the the lack lack of of rule rule of of law law that that we we have have over over China's China's policies policies but but we we should should be be working working in in concert concert with with all all these these other other countries countries the the day day after after China's China's policies policies to to confront confront China China instead instead of of doing doing it it alone alone because because and and these these other other countries countries just just sit sit back back and and their their their their companies companies will will get get all all the the business business because because they're they're they're they're the the products products of of their their companies companies are are so so much much cheaper cheaper whether whether soybeans soybeans from from Brazil Brazil or or whether whether it's it's semi semi conductors conductors from from from from the the E. E. U. U. or or technological technological equipment equipment manufactured manufactured goods goods number number US US steel steel plate plate instead instead of of Boeing Boeing airplanes airplanes this this is is this this general general trade trade war war between between the the United United States States and and China China actually actually benefits benefits many many other other countries countries and and it's it's hurting hurting American American jobs jobs although although it's it's clear clear the the president president trump trump wants wants to to get get China China to to change change its its behavior behavior in in your your experience experience when when you you were were U. U. S. S. ambassador ambassador China China or or more more broadly broadly over over the the years years have have you you seen seen United United States States either either alone alone or or with with others others effectively effectively change change the the Chinese Chinese government's government's behavior behavior I I think think we've we've been been able able to to alter alter the the years years with with different different presidents presidents democratic democratic and and Republican Republican administrations administrations we've we've been been able able to to tone tone down down some some of of their their their their rhetoric rhetoric of of forced forced him him to to be be a a little little bit bit the the slower slower and and more more cautious cautious and and less less confrontational confrontational they they haven't haven't factored factored participated participated at at Parker Parker with with United United States States and and our our allies allies on on a a whole whole host host of of issues issues whether whether it's it's fighting fighting piracy piracy off off the the coast coast of of Africa Africa contributing contributing to to U. U. N.

T. Colin Campbell, PhD - T is for 'Trailblazer'
"My guest today is one of the great trailblazers in the plant based space in fact he coined the term based over thirty years ago. His name is t Colin Campbell. Of course you know him from his book that is sold over three million copies. The China's study. You know him from the documentary forks over knives and many of you from his repeat visits to our annual event plans stock for the past sixty five years. He's been a courageous true seeker. An unapologetic truth teller and today's episode of the plant. Strong podcast we talk about his definition of nutrition. What exactly is protein? Which is better animal protein or plant based protein? How much fat she. Ideally have in our diet and we talk about two recently released articles that Colin wrote which speak to his revolutionary idea that the best defense against covert nineteen is. What is on the end of your fork? In fact not only as a whole foods plant based diet the best cautionary measure that we can take. It's also the most responsible to protect to strain on the hospital system. Our global environment and the food supply chain which as you know has been severely compromised much to the shameful detriment of the workers and the animals. The links to these two articles are in the show notes at plant strong PODCAST DOT COM. But for now take the next hour and absorb this rich information from my friend and mentor. T Colin Campbell. T Colin Campbell. I want to welcome you to the plant strong podcast. Jeez I think the last time that I saw you. Colin was on the Holistic holiday at the crews Gosh I think it was February. Twenty seventh right before cove nineteen hit us. Hard young was wonder that we work on one of those scholarships. No it really was and in this cruiseliner that we were on was an Italian cruise liner. Right now yeah yeah. What a Well what what a time that was so I would love to start out by saying and I WANNA boomerang around in and get to this subject but you recently have written two different articles both about Kobe. Nineteen and how nutrition may be our best defense against over nineteen which is kind of a a novel idea. But if it's okay with you before we we can tackle. That would like to do is kind of revisit and start with some of the kind of nutrition basics a little bit. Because I think that's show many people don't know some of the stuff some of the really revolutionary stuff that you did in in the China Study Joe. I'd like to talk a little bit about that. If you're okay with that sure I before I do. He Colin Campbell. What does the tea stand for Thomas? Thomas and your son is Thomas. I got two sons Thomas. This you're on weird and my father's name was Thomas also okay and so tell me. So why is the tea? Why is it? Why is it not Colin t Campbell? Wise IT T- Column Roma fozzard immigrant. And he's from the Campbell clan as you may know from Scotland essentially and for long centuries of the name Colin was always the first name given to the oldest child in the Campbell clan. And so I was the first child to be born and my dad wanted me to be named collar. Or but he wasn't there I was born. He saw the doctor gave around to put the name. Down my dad. He said there should be three names. My Mom said okay. Put put my dad's name. I never was not exactly what he wanted so I stuck with her column. That kept the T. While I well I this yeah well. It's so unique now you you have been kind of one of these trail-blazing researchers now for over sixty five years And you've just you've done some amazing stuff to basically go against the status quo and buck the trends. What what do you think is giving you the courage to go after the truth with such kind of like was such intensity well. There's one very practical reason namely I had the academic tenure which is really become a very very strong feelings about that. I got tenure when I was only in my thirties fairly I so I had all these years Davin. Intern is guaranteed by Tenure I can freedom of guarantee but tenure and his precious is precious. Had I not had that kind of academic freedom or tenure wilt have not have ed tenure. I would be sitting here talking to you now and Horton. But the but the part of it that I get really exercised about is the fact that tenure in American universities has been declining intentionally so now for decades and it's almost a deployment now at almost doesn't exist for person unless they you know at the senior level full professor tenure that sort of stuff they look. There's only not in two thousand eleven. Twenty nine percent of the faculty were senior senior professors. Let's say full professors and academic as I was one of the nine percent that was eleven. I've done this right now. Can't be more than what it is two or three percent so what that what that means for. Country Rep is that is shutting people down. Who are expected to be telling the truth And my dad was very particular about that. You tell the truth the whole truth. Nothing but the truth so it was a combination of my dad's background his advice. And the tenure.

"And welcome back to another episode of the cash flows show wave our guest mr richard thomas of of thomas your investigations now before the break i'm richard is telling us a lot about his situations in relation to process serving etcetera and close ios protection work one of the things that i wanted to ask richard was about surveillance now we've all seen these movies and and i know i keep referring very two movies but bear with me because that's my only emmanuel for this kind of thing and the idea of the guy who's on a stakeout now i've i've had to serve documents and when i've had to serve document i don't drive and that's gonna be a revelation to some people but i don't so the person who's driving always insists that i provide donuts just wait up get to go to say it's busy get doughnuts because they refused it to drive me away up seed there with a packet to the flask coffee get ready to serve somebody i'm sure i'm doing it completely be the wrong way because i'm like a tub large but finished eating all the tell me what really happens on these surveillance things right stake how yes they cow say these type people i think the beverly hills cop eddie murphy movie yeah you know the guys on a stakeout it kind of happens you know either you you have you walston food in the car you up all your equipment technical equipment cameras your video cameras oldest aids batteries everything and you pretty much committee after the day now if you're in a team by yourself you know it depends on you know you don't drinking too much liquid that's the that's the question uh-huh i'll be i'll be honest with you there's always an empty ball okay let's see it's reality eh i suppose eve this is a diversion before we go back to surveillance if you're a lady investigator as you donnie mona else question they must possess certain issues but anyway as i say any lady investigate is suppose that will be the next follow what podcast to some point in the easy to be slightly difficult but i think so i think they would have to be t awesome disappear and hopefully nothing not too much action happening seller away so you got must have plenty of stories i've got loads of stories about late payments situations in debt recovery situations and i'm sure that you must have many stories about absolute surveillance any you can relate van that's not going to get you into trouble company i'm i mean again it's one of these desa tracing i managed to after weeks investigation get a wig location for this person the goal was to put events on of find while her home address was that was yengo find out where she lives she disappeared owing money yeah it was a great case in a mentioned to places a search of central london is not always subject checked all the talk at issue of seeing you all getting see now i'm sarah i'm any fee on the street and you sane people's read saying insane the same people come off the public transport walk the streets etc incivility come down from the flat walking the dog it's six seventy nine it was watched by zeke focus it she's come up with oh yeah oh yeah six o'clock and you guys are on the block news source even you mirrors an she will back in the second third day i was on surveillance suppression are so do the same thing coming round she walked inside top summer winds i'm like oh a and she said hello deah notice this you've been here quarter wall would you like a cup of tea less wanting to cutler like my grandmother in price but some and adma raisins bayonets carry you know again you're gonna have a reason for being anywhere survive the cold on you and it's going to blow your whole cover such so that was a bit of comedy that you look for the third party awareness it's the big thing special neighborhood watch as well exactly i bet you yeah so i assume that in every film noir there's a way some private detective following somebody's husband following somebody's wife whatever the case may be here i take the end of the day that something that you may occasionally get drafted absolutely messy though it can be messy it's it's something which are you i'm not a lover i love a any anything but really messy because what what happened the problem is when you're giving the person who's hide you the end result they're not gonna like the and it's going to blow that will the and i've even not been paid once you instructed me and asked me to do to do that job to seville of information intelligence would it be photographic evidence video footage of that happening and look what you've done to blame me for it like instigated the whole thing so it's it's it's the tricky situation much money issues a tricky and it can be messy so i've changed my tapped on that and no with the financials and ah for now which i never normally do for case but on much morning cases i do know for that that's one of the questions that we do we we don't ask it very often because when we started this show i didn't want it even though it's called a cashflow show i didn't want to turn into a show just purely about money in debt debt and business and stuff like that but you know one of the questions that comes up every so often is how important is cash flow to your business and i suppose in measuring uh-huh matrimony with a woman screaming down the phone made saying look what you've done we'll it also allows for now i'm gonna lose lose i it's not my fault me to do a job i did it i did it well well what you wish for because just like gay take i mean the thing is for me what advice would you give to someone wanting to pursue a career similar to yours now than i is quite a bit hey i get i get young especially younger people reaching out to me and i enjoy helping people said before i'm a people person all of the networking thing and i i help people as much con emails from local people see me my website or they'll see me off the website again associated british investigators website and the semi nemo and i've met with three people now just give him some jim lob is firstly i will vet them to see that motives and to to save the really interesting going down that route what it's worth my time secondary direction now the advice i give to the listeners is get qualification of some sort behind your something to do with either criminology is a is a good solid basis if you want to stop the academic standoff if you can get into paolino companies not do not normally they're not going to know me step right up to the top rung right going through that surveillance mission off you probably doesn't work like that it's a the quality of the movies i bohm working white like anything but i mean i have something behind you and how path of continuous professional development i'm a strong believe it or not i do that myself full time and i will continue to do that i'm through my own training courses on developing as well tennis more by those chime yeah i'm again i'm such a people person and it's through these people reaching out to me which of wanting to help out help off put him on a better path up getting advice and i will be here to this day to give them advice almost at the end of the phone now i go i spoke with another colleague of mine who's in a prime station network that we're we're we're both members of he he does like online course which gives just a general overview of the industry of count so what i've been doing putting people into him said look just do this online course to get a good a good overview of the industry to see if he's gonna continue with and it's the reality of it i will then show you some practical courses in do the kelsey and show you what the ashy ah she beating the street in the real world's all about surveillance on process seven so operationally qualified as a

"Right guy you run place because there's no no need for it there's no need for that level of aggression because the whole point as you say you are the person that are handing over the papers it's not good news but this public not something that the person didn't expect in the first place they just didn't know when it was coming yeah that was well some of them are expecting it as well that's true poppy wander won't i did i did one job where i it was an all out by antisocial behaviour order oh yes essentially caught dangerous driving causing problems in the neighborhood and with neighbors i saw it was all like you'll be gone gonna go fear it was all like this discount not to be the nicest guy will not guys i've met and i did it it's so the way i did it and you know you try to give him a little bit of vice saw linked to give advice but just try to put me direction in a maybe if you do this do that maybe give them a call we know the chat with just the way you do it and it just it just can change potentially will situation to com situation where everyone gets the job done among happy because he's not happy but i'm high walkway we have been a regression bloodspill i've done the job not seeing go it some that's my priority is getting that job done exactly well at this point we it's time for us to get the job done and it's time to hear a word from our sponsor so we'll be back with you on the other side along with richard who will be telling us a little bit more about himself and telling us a bit more about body guarding close protection work and process serving see you after the break.

"People they work it also the independent ones who are not tied to companies they work for a number of companies so they go in they they they they do what but it's companies in and the oldest guys being sick and for pay for quite a while and this gentleman maybe we should check this guy out you know he's got over it works go about baki count really quite immobile oh ball now and then they'll just check him out this is the details we go and he's playing football in the sunday you know it's have you not really telling the truth yes that goes back in it you know it can save companies money in the long term short term you pay for long term gain for the company that's the thing investigating people either that's interesting because for me in our business at PR our MS when we have to say to people oh we're going we need to find some they think that just because you're involved in late payment management of debt recovery that you're going to be in a position where you know where all these people are there's a place where there's a room where all the data people hang out and that you just go there and you just find them and they don't seem to understand it when people want to disappear appear that can really want the in some cases upturn as well you know you get the background in case again there's a lot of cases i've done recently which people don one is from rent big big big thing now is too easy for them just to walk away and hide just like you said that the disappear and you look at the whole k. jason you see them the stock so that social media posts like a year ago stopped we stopped that you can say a whole history of unwinding i'm hiding or i'm trying to hide but then it's where richard thomas comes in you know been a good beating the street legwork with database on social media searches our uh-huh access to databases which blocks too so let's get more information that way it's like spies wherever you put it all together like a puzzle we put together on you think wow i've got a picture here and i think he's fascinating and why i say that is because when i say to prospective clients well this is going to have to pay to get this information a lot of people don't understand that there is a short term pain but the fact is if you're dealing insignificant figures and significant numbers if somebody owes you twenty thirty thirty forty grand then investing in a private investigator in order to find that person is got to be worth the money absolutely no now brian for some people because you know it can be a lot of money to people and for a small lump initially to get that long term gain that we're talking about it just well worth all you just walk away and unthinkable rest of your life i wish them sending out that while i had a chance and you have gone opportunity causes like myself me is in this world that do this work and help people of course we've got that money back and i think that to a certain extent when you're trying to assist people people are coming to to you very much that they're coming to us in quite distress say exactly yes absolutely i suppose if you're a landlord you've got this property you've got it on this buy to let mortgage each and let's just assume that you're not one of these direct line harvey keitel advert it's cool because direct line agreeing to pay your from your your mortgage while you're the auditor tries to skip merrily into the sunset for most people that's not the reality reality of every time that the data doesn't pay or the or the tenant doesn't pay then obviously there's a major major problem exactly yeah yeah i mean people can be on the verge of losing that property even even on the buy to let mortgages yeah i mean if i don't act and do something about it quickly could that could that could mean set your mind whether i lose everything coasts and i've seen it i've seen it where they don't wanna pay initially where you know the short-term pain again talking about is a long term gain that's a good saying and it happens time and time again of course and i think that the whole point is i think when people invest in property and i've had this discussion with people that you i need a team of people around you and if you are a landlord and you're going to make being a landlord your career because there are a lot of people apart time landlords and that's no disrespect i respect to them but they don't build a team around him correct and part of the team of your team you've got to impart from having the plumber and the carpenter and the electrician shen and the boiler or what if you need your legality you need your team that draws your section twenty one section eight whatever the case both those a housing type documents for those wanting to know what i'd say we're another support service absolutely from you so for working not with debt departments in getting money back and probably best guises it's yeah it's it's it's ex like extra service which shall we should be on the back burner we are there to help in we do this even we we we do it a lot we do it good to understand because sometimes uh-huh as i said if you've a leaky toilet the fact is you can go ahead and fix it but when you make it worse than it floods the whole house then there's no benefit to it doesn't make sense yes yeah i mean but you'll will in advanced in your career at thomas youk how long have you actually been masugi mr gatien's now okay well it's been limited i did start off initially on a self-employed basis and it was with the accountant's advice to protect yourself in person etc yeah i wanna ask limited over two years okay excellent so but the thing is you've been in your career for a considerable period of time in terms of investigations and close protection such is one of the things that you wish that you you know when you began your career the time the i effectively given to the career where you know you see you see you can take extreme there you can look at the likes of maybe but you runs and the etc where everyone else ruins everything for them i sit i can do what they want that said one dream yeah exactly you wanna do that but it's the time factor that when you start a business now sa- serb biggest factor i just i don't know how would you do differently but this time i put into that career on that my path you know working sixteen announced today sometimes eighteen hours a day staying away from home law that sort of thing and i don't know how would have changed that was a big factor that was a big factor if i could change it in a in in any sort of way shape or form how probably do going forward as my business expense i will start to get tickets a little step back not too much will step back yeah like i said i'm clearly it's excitement beating the street and i yeah but once you've got in your blood and you're used to doing it it's not something that you can just give up easily you know this is that you always want to have your hand in because that's what you do and i don't think people should change if you love what you if you don't enjoy paperwork then find somebody ready to do paperwork yeah i know that load of people there's this argument in business and the argument is that you know if you know that you like editing podcasts for example and and you you enjoy that but the fact is your the what you would charge out as an individual working on your particular case is a more than when you do the podcast what you're doing is effectively you're creating a situation for yourself that you are doing work for which your way overqualified fight in overpaid for as opposed to giving work to somebody else who's their specific niche yes exact- they they would be happy to do that because that's what they do i i mean you may love doing it but it's not the most cost-effective things now exactly business expands i will through networking i've met a lotta people an iowa class some of them as a potential support services for me so like the v. is much you assistance in things that can do the app many bits and so so i've already earmarked some people will i could outsource some some work to as my business expense so again i'm looking into that and i have got a path that you think that the idea of maybe letting go is what scares people i mean in terms of what you do you always get the impression and obviously this is always hollywood inspired so we've got to take with a pinch of salt of the you drink kiew no living on their own and so of their moldy cheese in the fridge you know of private detective -tective investigator and that kind of very solid tree varies focused lifestyle just living for the next case do you think that sort of determines direction the people involved in your type of work do do people at least like that it's not letting go thing again about such things but for me personally it's chesting i think simon i do my job i know do while there's different ways you know two days of the same and also for example take protests legal documents that same document on in different people every person's different it will go a different way you have to be clever enough for experienced no for both to adopt to the situation quickly and be able to get the job done get the angle the end goal is serving xetra yes i've seen a lot of people into who who fall show up up now i i don't let that go at the minute i just you know thinking to the future is quite i don't think too because that's that's the thing i am where i am now now i'm expanding nice steady pace is going right direction i think will cross up which when i come to it when the time comes by the minute decide excitement i see the loving i do and that's the that's the well you know the feedback again and the way i do it and you you know one hundred things i think i think process seven nothing for people that don't know what pro serving is it's usually when somebody like richard basically giving a set of papers purpose usually they're usually legally based and they have a usually some sort of writing documentation on the meaning that it should be handed over over in a specific place or specific time and in a specific fashion you usually see again and i go back to american movies and i know it's not exactly the same but they make a real meal eleven where they basically find the person goes hey joe bloggs your served and pump and the end of today that person unusually kicks off for dramatic effect act i mean one of the things that you mentioned richard was there basically about managing people the difficulty is is that when you're dealing we've those situations everybody reacts differently somebody's ugly is yeah some people are aggressive some people go silence people say what do why do you get from person what nobody wants to go in my hand and that's not a good thing when there was bad news or whatever and and you've got to adopt weighty quickly really quickly you know i always play it down i was played down our plate clever i don't go in with the looking at bayless relief and sort of stick my chest down on that sort of thing and sign your serve the all time so you know no that's not the way i do it it's all a people person i know how to deal with people can going at cleverly i can get in to identify themselves sometimes even asking the question question they'll get him secondary to accept them pipers hopefully by hun stops the game and it's why do against people person thing e can adopt a situation russian hubba hubba reason for being in fact that it just it's not always i'm here to serve you you sometimes you might have another alternative reason which is the way i do it's just the way whites done a lot of people don't do very well and you think an stories makola fights in accounting what did you do to do that what i want i see no question beat the question of course it does i've even how to woman screaming shut the door and i spoke softer soft and soft uh-huh and her voice just went down with mine and she's calmed down of course because the dog the fact is the reality of it is that people sometimes are looking for confrontation i'm i've had that problem when sometimes we've had a particular case and you want to speak to somebody about some because there there is this pervasive myth that i get asked and i'm going to ask you the same question is that the person is that what i do is inherently violent and asking king for money all asking for payment of an invoice or or an outstanding debt is something that needs aggression which doesn't you either oh the money or you don't owe the money yeah it is a reason why you should or there's a reason why you think you shouldn't the reality my job is to facilitate that payment but the reality of is when you speak to people and especially when you ring up and say we've got to be a problem here nothing oh you sound nice you show you're the.

"When we visit a world of private detectives the philip marlowe sam spade gumshoe private eye that we seen film noir is never far from our minds better better still when we imagine close protection

asking them to fill and the favourite single or album and to share their reasons for doing so so why not join us at the cash flow show it's not just a radio show it's a whole new way of doing business hello and welcome to episode sixteen of the cash flows show with our guest mr richard thomas of thomas yoke investigations richard welcome to the cash flow sean clayton nice to be here excellent thank you after that hyped-up intro i'm i'm going to start with a question that i get asked every networking event i go to how did you get into this how to be probably investigator well that's interesting one hold while yes my most common question we're going back from that so my previous life was a close protection bodyguards to a billionaire i spent ten years on a protection team i'm prior to that i did a lot of embassy work when i first started in need protection for your prior to doing that ten year stints i finished a ten year stint as protection bodyguard also counter surveillance specialist within that role so what's counter surveillance because there are a lot of people hear these these woods and they just hear them from TV and they just don't under the point good point yes i guess in question again yes so you think about surveillance is the arts of following ling recording and gathering intelligence information evidence etc encounters violence you're countering not threats so you're watching for watchers basically he all looking for people watching the principal or the IP normally before hit is always element of surveillance and they gather intelligence they gather routines they find weak spots i hit so counter surveillance is effectively countering not threats so i be out there watching for watchers make sure there's no one got sedans on on a subject or place exxon okay that make that clear as i said there are a lot of people who hear these terms and effectively you just hear them from tv programmes mm films videos etcetera etcetera so for for you to know what it means to explain that at least that helps a lot of our listeners take that on board absolutely yes going on from the question going on being accounts advance specialist gave me a lot of experience as surveillance specialist in general and i took not skill on after the break and started my own privatization business the work i do is surveillance okay so we're going to go go into that and one of the first things i wanted to ask is there you've taken these skills and experience that you've had in counter surveillance and surveillance and close protection -tection work is this your first business this is affecting my very first major business yes was such yes okay is there anything else that that you would have done if he hadn't been for this or do you the die was cast and you were you were going to be doing this anyway the answer to that is i've been chasing using simon all my life and i continue to choice like simon i'm forty four now in two thousand nine hundred eighty nine so i couldn't imagine a life without chasing excitement couldn't be sitting in an office on the old enough yet to say office relaxed and sit back and let people do work for me so as a true answer to that question already early onset don't know what else i'll be doing i've kind of rolled and folded in beaten molded and pushed not pushed fall in quite nicely into my path sport me here while i am today and i'm very happy where i am now so i wouldn't really change it of the lots of exciting jobs going i'm back and things but yeah i'm really pleased where i am now doing this it's exciting and it will continue to be exciting i think is it also exciting the fact you like a lot of people who set up yourselves to be entrepreneurs are in love with the idea of controlling your own destiny -solutely yes that was a major thing why i i when i was a bodyguard to the billion ten years takes its toll on my soul to this person if this person six weeks on on a straight on a visit six week strike it takes its toll i had no control such over that so yes that was one of the reasons that i started miam- business and took the big plunge i'm controlling my own destiny an MIT thomas such you know in terms of close protection because people don't really use the word bodyguard anymore it could come close protection is there i wouldn't say politically correct but it's the it's the maneuver tango term for that and you see i've i've seen a couple of people who've been up on lincoln who say that they offer those close protection services is there a particular route that you go through in order to to become that easy or do you just wake up see i've got some muscle i've worked at the GM already i actually don't think muscle people look at people and judge which is a natural actual human instinct people look at me i'm not the average bodyguard i'm not six six say maud island krav maga which is a the martial art combat which is ready special forces are trained on i felt so i need some special training alongside mass production costs but the the path to the eighties he's course affectively through the sl what set aside the essay as the security industry authority by government regulation for the industry of the whole security industry okay that's the path i chose i chose when i chose i'll tell you my path from the beginning of security i started off at the bottom i working govan house hotel in park lane okay i was a security supervisor there i'm forty events i'm not that not that you'll hoteling guests side but for the event section a native big big events the mercury music awards evenings with freddie flintoff for example a lots of celebrities coming in they've got the great white room she's underground there's two thousand capacity so shows you the volume of people can be in the an i started there and the bodyguards used to come in with with the celebrities they say what are you going to get your license you know it might give you more than us to to to look at an data itis wet offing bodyguard license masha lots komo trading and i was looking to progress and i was looking to get interviews and get on teams and get into the the tennis didn't with the lady i was looking after birth without the time but it's not the only thing you need officially is a licensed club station license and you can say you're detection optical but he got of you wanna say so that's that's the only re-met any i it's difficult as well to apply thought license without sioni reman to say that you are a operative or bodyguards is very interesting interesting because i suppose to a certain extent people usually offer their services as you imagine in in usually what was some sort of a and i usually use the american aspect of private investigations or close protection work you know i worked for two hundred dollars a day plus expenses it's usually something like that but what i'm fascinated about is they're setting up shop and effectively saying right richard thomas thomas thomas your investigations how did that come about because there's there must have been a leap from just saying right i'm going to get these certificates i'm going to get this training to and actually saying right this is becoming a fully fledged business how did you manage to make that leap so it would form into a clear business is now yeah that's no easy it's not easy decision to take any scale our self employed too many years often put right through my close protection time of the ten eleven twelve years a total time i did it when you start limited company i think the pressure on

a difficult leap to make them how experience you are it's daunting task without house without a doubt but i i i took a shot with experienced enough i had the right path is the path pretty much planned

don't wait any to sow no myself cells myself if you wanna the cost and i think that's the mistake that a lot of people make i think i suppose if you're a marketeer and you're listening to this you probably going to have a completely different outlook but i think that marketing really just helps to underline what's already there i think you can sell rubbish if you live for one of a better expression by marketing it gerald retina wants to burma said that about his jury end unfortunately crashed his business so that was slightly disingenuous of the reality of the situation is is that if

they don't go to networking meetings correct i learned that from when i'm doing my late payment that recovery type work most when i go somewhere somebody says i've never met somebody like you before i don't if they've never met anybody like like me but not doing doing what what what we do as a business so that's really quite interesting and i think that if people have the nerve to get up and go

different areas i mean the natural fit instantly is always going to be solicited for you isn't it exactly okay yeah and who are the type of people that use your kind of service this is definitely the

"I was thinking to myself. Oh God oh God this is my fault and we're going to just start it and we had just started. It was the first five minutes on the boat of a ninety minute boat right now my tears GonNa kill me. The beller a ton of boats out there like you could see like Oh gosh beginning planning because everyone's getting out and everybody's going out so they're voters by the way I was terrified. Oh and then one and then the captain the crew so nice and then the captain was like if you go downstairs it's calmer yeah. I'm like okay so we went downstairs to where the table had been set up. It was no longer setup own. They moved everything inside because I think obviously what happened so I'm sure everything fell on the floor and whatnot but it would be ended up sitting down there and and we had Roseanne and it was lovely it was it was okay good. It ended up being what was also great was the. I don't know what you call. So there was a captain that was driving and his second in command <hes> was so uh knowledgeable and find out. He's a chef as well and a musician my goodness they do it all but I was so scared that I have to. I really need to explain how scared I was that we were going to drown yeah and then I thought they were going to push me off. The boat and I was like that. I think my video I was like this could be a natalie wood moment if they pushed me off and you can't find the video hilarious use videotape that a little bit of it at so great so Julian so the captain's name the captain's aim was Jillian.

"Thomas always the Sunday after Easter always and forever and forever misnamed, the doubter. I wonder if anyone remembers that this is not the first time you've requested something of Jesus I imagine most of us don't why I suspect that it's because we are so captivated by your disbelief. So as develop our own so thankful for your so called need for proof because it justifies our deepest desire for evidence of an empty tomb. So admiring of your willingness to speak up for what you need to believe. Because for the most part, we are all too comfortable in early Jains to an acceptance of doctrine and dogma that means nothing to us. If we are completely honest. So we don't speak up. We don't speak up for the things we need the things otas. The things that matter the things promised to us that things about which we think we can't or won't speak up because who will listen will anything change. So we stay silent for our selves for others in shame and guilt. Someone else will say something, right? Surely someone else will speak up. Someone else will stand up for injustice for discrimination. Someone else will stand up for those abused for those who have no voice for those who can't breathe for those lives that matter. Someone else will stand up against false claims about religious freedom. Someone else will give voice to what I feel and know and want someone else will speak up for me. Yet Thomas Thomas, you said no more to silence, no more to sitting on the sidelines. No more to unworthiness. No more to not being enough. No, more to self questioning you said, no more. No wonder we can hardly remember or try not to anyway, your first request of Jesus. This is what I like about you. What I admire about you Thomas. You ask for what you need for what's owed to you. Yes. For what you deserve. Yes. But more so for what Jesus had already promised you for what Jesus promises every believer. You have a good memory Thomas. Back in John fourteen to be exact Jesus said to you. And you know, the way to the place where I am going. And you said to Jesus Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way Jesus responded? I am the way and the truth and the life. No, one comes to the father except through me, if you know me, you will know, my father also from now on you do know him and have seen him. I wonder what you thought after that Thomas. Maybe you took Jesus seriously. Maybe you thought you could. So when your fellow disciples say to you guess what Thomas we saw the Lord the same thing that Mary Magdalene said to the disciples, by the way. You had to be thinking to yourself. Well, that's great Mary. Now, you Jesus did say he was the way. I I remember that in when we were talking about the way. Well, I remember Jesus said he was preparing an abiding place for me for us. That's what I feel. So here's the thing. Mary saw the Lord all y'all saw the Lord it's not that I need proof. I just need to be with him. Because that's what it means that he's the way right Jesus way is not that which discriminates Jesus way is not that which disregards Jesus way is not that which discards Jesus way does not mean, I'm left out. That's not how I heard it. Anyway, I didn't know where he was going, and I didn't know the way. And so I asked and then he said he was the way he was the way not he was the way I just need to be with you Jesus to touch you to feel you see you hear you taste, you one more time, I need to feel that abiding place. Again, I need to feel the way again. Missing someone isn't about how long it's been since you've seen him or the amount of time since you've talked. It's about the very moment you are doing something. And wishing he was right there with you. Because like, Mary, it's so hard not to hold on. It's so hard to let go. One more time. Please. Just one more time. I think that's what you thought Thomas. I think that's what you needed. I think that's what you teach us. All. Thomas. You show us the way Thomas, and really you knew it all along you knew the way was not a roadmap. You knew the way was not a claim meant to exclude others. You knew the way was not that which you could use to reject others. Instead, you knew the way was being in the presence of your Lord and your God. And that's all you wanted. You wanted. What Jesus said you knew you asked for what Jesus said, you should you needed? What Jesus said is yours. To abide with him. Always. And in that moment, and that abiding.

Shut your doors is a trucking company. I don't care how big yard you're gonna have to change and change radically. If you and this is one of the reasons, by the way, you hear so much push for Thomas Thomas Thomas because they don't wanna put up with this. They don't wanna change. It's benefited the trucking companies to a great degree to go this business model the last twenty five or thirty years they wanted to continue and they wanted to deal with truck drivers because they look at truck drivers as a necessary evil rather than a valued asset.
