UCL Trouble for Chelsea?
"Welcome insulation of spnfz down. Thomas during the today by allie. Moreno gotten off coffee. You'll be hitter flags on a big win for you today but we start in the champions leaks good matches. Isn't it coming up over the next couple of days. We'll stop at looking trump. Let's go madrid against chelsea some other. The chelsea as favourite not six to four on to advanced next trying athletics. Eleven to ten men rapids. He absolutely flying in la league the first half of the season they have somewhat just a little bit foreign off. Course levante being very much thorn in that side. You're against on wednesday lost on saturday. Let's welcome shall we. Don't just sit low. Lo look ahead to this game. Say let's start off with a athletic perspective xiaowei. What's going wrong with them. They all right. I think we'll go move the wrong with them. In part was that this was likely to happen at some stage. Although perhaps not in quite this way bear mind. They've now dropped many points in twelve days as they had in the inside season up until that point but is in for full-on collapse in all four games. It's one victory to drills the fate as a site. that'd be on such good full. It was fifty four fifty seven points at fifty fifty seven points in the first half the season that it feels like a glass. I think in a way if you look at the results before this games way they were always on edge there again where they were just about coming through very light winner. You've are weiner out of s for example that going behind much more often than previously remember they concedes remedies minute behind in the entire season. That's not happen more often. They're conceding early goals. They gonna seven games in a row conceding so it was the probably some point tip slightly now not into a full blown crisis but certainly into a situation where they were necessarily gonna mean sign that level incredible efficiency in winning games that they had up until fruitful weeks ago and coming up against a chelsea side. Don still unbeaten under to call but very very ordinary against hanson. Yeah just methodical. The hard sites watch chelsea they get. The job done. Didn't against that in the drawer but they were hard. Watch nothing. thomas tickle early on. I think he's testing these players. Think he's testing. Mentality is testing the players and different systems. Put the weekend. He lasted fifteen minutes and took stripe off again so he didn't work took off the ball put about so it's a chelsea sought while you won't you come on west off whereas the where's the attack and fled just very very methodical. Caffeine phoenix can tighten me. I can't imagine be free flowing ends and talking football full three job so don just call chelsea methodical and if you think of you don't feel like hey look at them they're open. They're attacking they're going to commit number full and so therefore if you have an athletic team that has been struggling to get results and you have a team. That is quote unquote methodical. Then yes you're exactly correct. This is not four three. this is set pieces. This is very tied very tactical certainly in the first leg in which is going gonna make it physical from. They have to get back to that. They've lost a little bit of that and they've lost a little bit of attention to details in the game against the weekend. Golda was not scored by motorists early on. There's the ball over the top from set piece attack and said piece of mind on a mis-clearance goes over fifty yards and morales one one situation against like that doesn't happen against atlantic city. But it's been happening more and more often over the last ten days or so they have to clean up those details and clean those details where you're going to find something that is going to be very very difficult to beat

Biden invites Pence to inauguration, calls Trump ‘incompetent' and says it’s good he won't attend
"Elect joe biden tonight reacting to the news that president trump now says he will not attend the inauguration the president elect saying that's a good thing biden just twelve days from taking office today saying again. President trump is not fit to serve leaving talk of impeachment though to congress. And what about vice president. Mike pence who condemned the mob long before the president did. Will he be at the inauguration. Here's mary bruce. With calls to impeach president trump growing president elect joe biden. Today did not hold back calling trump on worthy of the office and an embarrassment. I've been saying for now well over year. he's not fit to serve. he's not fit to serve. Is one of the most incompetent presidents in the history of the united states of america. And so the idea that. I think he shouldn't be out of office. Yesterday is not issue and he had harsh words to for the president's supporters. Who stormed the capital there. Bunch of thugs insurrectionist white supremacist and semites. And they're terrorists domestic terrorist and that'll be a judgment for the the justice department to make to what the charges should be the different series. This had the active encouragement of city. President of the united states biden. Making it clear. He thinks trump bears responsibility for inciting the chaos. But instead of focusing on trump's fate says he's focused on the challenges ahead and hitting the ground running and on the news. That trump will not be at the inauguration. The president-elect said this one of the few things. I've ever agreed on a good thing. I'm not sure know all right. Mary's with president trump says he will not attend but a lot of focus on the vice president as well. Mike pence of course condemned the writers long before the president did the vice president. We all watch late that night. The senate chamber with harsh words for the riders. He was applauded by both democrats and republicans in that senate chamber any word tonight. Will he be at the inauguration. All david biden says that the vice president is welcome and that he would be honored to have him there adding that he thinks it's important as much as they can to stick to the traditions of the transfer of power. But tonight we're told the vice president hasn't decided yet whether or not he'll attend
President Trump Might Abuse Pardon Powers in Remaining Days in Office
"Trump still controls the pardon power for the next thirteen days or twelve days by the time people listen to this garrett. How likely do you think it is that in trump's final couple weeks the most imaginatively spiteful use of the pardon. He could come up with other than perhaps pardoning south in his children rudy. Giuliani is a kind of blanket. Amnesty to all the people who the justice department would want to prosecute in. Fbi one arrest. I think that that is not necessarily a sure-fire thing. But i would certainly put it into the more likely than not category that we're going to see in the next thirteen days and in fact i think we might even see it much more quickly than that because i think one of the challenges that we are seeing right now is rising calls for the invocation of the twenty fifth amendment by mike pence or the impeachment of the president. Both of which. I think are a highly unlikely scenarios but donald trump might very quickly feel that he has a real ticking clock a against his presidency and might be tempted. Act and remember. We have seen blanket. Amnesties like that before. Jimmy carter granted blanket amnesty to vietnam war draft dodgers as president to try to reset that political debate and allow people who had been caught up in that war for all variety of reasons to be able to re enter society in an open way but not to sort of quibble with at the premise. Of your question ben. But i i guess. I'm not really clear. Trump issuing those kinds of blanket pardons is certainly plausible. It certainly would be a grotesque abuse of power but they almost certainly would be val part. And to the extent that there are certain martin's it seems overwhelmingly unlikely that a new attorney general or deputy attorney general would be inclined to want to prosecute anyway and an attempt to sort of test those legal questions and so you know i don't know that trump issued a blanket. Pardon would would complicate things right. It would be a hideous abuse office. But what choice would the fbi or the justice department have but to say. We can't continue to investigate or prosecute people who who are covered by this pardon. Oh i think that's exactly right. I think they would have no choice but to say exactly that they would say exactly. That and the result would be that you had an attack on the capital for which. Nobody could be prosecuted. And i understand as we've been talking the first Case has now been announced or at least it has shown up on the docket of the court. Here in dc. Is that right Yeah i think that that first set of discrete federal charges have filed Against at least two individuals and in these appear to be pretty traditional sort of a salt charges for trespass and assaulting capitol police officers
"twelve day" Discussed on Axios Today
"Kong than fifty pro democracy activists and politicians bethany ebrahim. Ian is accuses china expert. Bethany good morning. Can you tell us what's going on. Yeah so early wednesday morning up more than one. Thousand police officers fanned out over hong kong and arrested at least fifty three pro democracy activists and politicians. These are some of the most well known people in hong kong participating in hong kong's completely legitimate democratic elections and now they have all been charged with subverting state power anthony. China's leaders are actually feeling very confident and. I wonder why that's important to understand in the context of these arrests so with the coronavirus outbreak. Last year i mean. Initially that was terrible for china's global reputation however they were about able to control it very well and because of that china is the only major economy in the world who experienced significant economic growth. In twenty twenty. I think xi jinping is feeling like he wants to make hay while. The sun shines and this entire dramatic. Crackdown on hong kong has happened entirely during the coronavirus pandemic with that said i wonder how the events this week in washington were portrayed by the chinese communist party in hong kong there were huge protests last year. And that's a real sore point for the chinese communist party and so it showed photos of the chaos yesterday in the capital and it said that this was a beautiful sight to behold. That's something that nancy pelosi said on june fourth. Two thousand nineteen as a large group of peaceful. Protestors held a candlelight vigil in hong kong commemorating the nineteen thousand nine hundred eighty nine massacre. And so they were taking that line and turning it on its head and saying look at this beautiful sight to behold and so there were a lot of comments like that from chinese state media

COVID-19 vaccine arrives in Washington state
"First batch of corona virus vaccines have started to arrive in washington state ten months into the pandemic. But it's not going to change the situation significantly before the christmas holidays. People are advised to keep masking up and to practice physical distancing k. u. a. w. news anchor page browning is tracking the public health guidance and she joins us now for some frequently asked questions about the winter season page. Hi hey kim. So first of all the covid nineteen vaccine could start being administered tomorrow here in washington. How many people are expected to get at this winter. Yeah that's right well. What we know is that washington is expected to get two hundred twenty two thousand doses of the pfizer vaccine from now until january first and in total the state could get five hundred thousand two million doses by mid february so basically that means as many as a million people could have access to at least the first dose of the vaccine by about valentine's day but it could be much less than that depending on how well distribution goes and if maderna's vaccine candidate is also authorized right and just keeping in mind. There are over seven million people living in washington. It's still just a fraction of everybody. The holidays are coming upon us quickly. Hanukkah of is already underway. This week christmas kwanzaa other now. Eleven to twelve days away. So how can people best celebrate together safely. Well you've heard this before virtually is best. It's the safest at least if you do gifts open and video chat together. Do a food swap. Maybe caravan to see the lights. Something virtual and physically distance but we know some people will still gather in person despite public health guidance. So if people are going to expand their cove pod you do that by putting yourself in a two week quarantine and that should have started last friday if you plan to see your brother or mom or whoever on christmas day. And what about that shorter quarantine period. We've heard about from the cdc right well the the cdc and washington's department of health basically say this if you have to travel all of a sudden okay. Then you're your last case option is for you to quarantine for seven days. Then get tested for cove at the end of that with a negative result. All right well. Speaking of testing are the testing centers in our area. Ready for a pre holiday surge like we saw before thanksgiving well. I'll i'll answer that in two parts. Yes these free cova. Testing sites are ready for long lines of people. They're serving long lines of people basically every day already since the cases are spreading so fast in our state but this part two is public. Health officials don't want people just coming to get a test so that they can travel and to curb some of that behavior. The testing sites schedule has changed. So now you can schedule a kobe test. A couple days out but no further ahead of thanksgiving. You might remember. That was different people looking at cova test like or more in advance likely not for illness but so that they could have a thanksgiving event. Okay so the testing sites are prioritizing people who have symptoms of covid and i understand. There's a news site that's opening up. This week tells more about that. Yeah there's a new free testing site that's going to be the first on the east side opens tomorrow. And it'll be at bellevue college. This one's going to run monday through saturday and basically it's intended to serve. Yes bellevue but also is across a mesh. Maybe people as far out as north bend. And now we've got about a dozen free test sites in king county and as a reminder him their free sites they're funded by federal cares act dollars and those dry up january first anything else folks may want to know page kim. The outbreak is really really high right now. The highest it's ever been the daily average of new cases in washington is two thousand two hundred cases. That's how many people on average are infected every day in washington in march. The daily average was three hundred seventy. It's grim. But i will leave you this with this. There are brighter days ahead. That's what i'm trying to keep in mind. Local public health officials are hoping that now with a vaccine. This could be the last major holiday that will be under these strict

But i did a presentation for olympus yesterday run and You can see this presentation. It was a livestream. We did it on the olympics. The us olympics facebook page. So it's get ged t get. Olympus is the username. And i decided to kind of go out on a limb and they were kind enough to let me do it so they asked if i would participate in this twelve days of christmas promotion that they're doing and i said of course being and they said it'd be cool if you could you know do something about Doing like holiday portraits in creative things for holiday portraits and again.

So what i did show are lots of props but like you know the obvious christmas decoration things like to so garland nat but i had glasses drinking glasses and glass vases and i had some material things and i talked through all these different things that you could do to make your holiday. Portraits were interesting with the idea. Being that i didn't want to give people an example so that they could be lazy and just copied the example. I wanted to kind of plant an idea and really it. Any motion and challenge. And then olympus was was good enough. They agreed that we would run a little hashtag contest with it and The deadline is december twentieth. And the best shots that we pick olympus. Us and uk are going to share on their facebook pages and they're instagram stories. And then separately from olympus. I'm going to pick a one winter. The coolest shot the most creative idea that i find in the group and i'm going to do a one hour video consultation with them. Whatever topic they won't we can talk about their photography to a portfolio review post processing business. Whatever so so far experiments also good start it was it was pretty well received. There are a few people that were not happy that we weren't showing vigils. Most people actually commented if they thought it was actually a really neat thing because they were sitting there listening and they were actually able to imagine ideas in their mind based on where they're going to be for the holidays or based on their house and decorations. So we'll see i. You know i figure. Hey gotta take a chance. Every now and say in principle that sounds like the absolute ideal way to approach that. Because as you say the minute you put up images people are just going to go. How can i recreate that. It's what i want them to do. Is get away from those to actually get creative and yes right. So i i went to great lengths to really kind of describe my ideas in detail how i would go about doing them but i didn't want to show them ideas and i'll i'll make sure i share the link to the lies yea totally so it It was it was kind of fun doing it. I won't i won't lie. I was a little worried the whole time. Because as i'm talking to the camera i can't really watch the comments so i'm thinking all right she like this or they hate it. When i finish talking. I was almost afraid to look at the comments
Streamlining the Hiring Process for Nurses With Dr. Iman Abuzeid of Incredible Health
"The genesis of incredible health came from my background right. So i am an md a lot of friends and family members that are doctors as well who were often complaining about understaffing at the same time. My co founder. Who's a software engineer from. Mit import. lock. His sisters are nurses and they were saying. Hey i'm experienced and qualified and still takes me two three months to get my next job. I applied a ten fifteen places. I often don't hear back. This is a very common experience for nurses by the way even today and so we just figured there just has to be an easier way to solve this problem so essentially the problem you identified. Was this kind of the process. Right of hiring. Nurses was broken. Which doesn't make sense right because you would think you know with the shortage and hospitals needing nurses they would bring him on but hospitals are also big bureaucracies with lots of different challenges. So i guess it does make sense. You identified this problem. Which was the hiring the on boarding process and and all the bureaucracy involved. You decided to figure to streamline it and that was the genesis of incredible health. That's right and it's now expanded beyond just the place where a nurse finds the job. It's the place where he or. She manages their career. I mentioned continuing education earlier. We also have free salary estimators. We have a couple more services than are launching at the end of this year as well. That's exclusively for nurses. So it's it's really become the place where you manage your entire career on incredible health. Well i'm wondering him on. How does the business model work do. Hospital subscribe pay subscription fee to the site. Or do they pay you know. Every time they hire somebody you get a fee sort of kazakh model designed as a subscription and then that the hospitals are picking are selecting different. Tiers that are based on volume of one hundred percent free for the nurses when nurses go and work at hospitals. Do they tend to stay at the same hospital for a long time. Or is there high turnover. Are they moving around to different hospitals. Yeah so for our platform specifically we only do permanent workers right. We don't do any contract. Workers now look nursing in general is known for high turnover right so usually it's seventeen percent is a national annual turnover right now and so retention is also a hot topic and a very important topic for these for these employers as well and we'll try to do whatever they can to try to keep their nurses so let's go back to the beginning of this year. At what point. Did you realize that this pandemic is going to be a major problem and that the service you offer was was potentially going to be in high demand. I figured this out. Put this altogether. Probably in january february and now is because i was on twitter on and honestly the most amount of information was coming from epidemiologists. Md's and public health experts around the world because we weren't getting real time data here in the us so twitter twitter was actually the my source for figuring this out. I know you've got a team of about thirty people. You're based in san francisco right. We are headquartered in san francisco. Our team is in different parts of the country. So when you realize that this was potentially going to be a huge issue did you see an immediate spike in demand for your services. We did a certainly by april. There was a spike in demand for specific types of nurses. If you're an icu nurse. Or e deaners the hiring for that like increased by three x on our platform like right away and we saw a drop. For some of the other specialties because surgeries were getting canceled but since then since july august the demand for every single role has dramatically increased because not only are hospitals operating at full capacity also dealing with this pandemic. So how did you start to position your your company and your business to meet that demand so there were few things that we did We a few months ago. We launched what we call the pandemic hiring sweet right and what that is is a a range of features and tools that even more dramatically accelerates the hiring and really helps. The hospitals reduce costs because they had gone through some very severe financial hardship. Right so a couple of the things that we did was we added in automated interview scheduling remote interviewing. Because that's just what you have to do. During a pandemic in-app chats enhanced are matching algorithms. All of these with the goal of accelerating the hiring even further so we got down to twelve days now and on average we save every hospital that we work with at least two million dollars because they dramatic try to reduce their travelers costs as well as our overtime in asia. Our costs so essentially last year or the year before. If you were nurse using your platform you would have done and in-person interview at least one. You've traveled to the hospital. And that of course has gone away. That's gone so that's not even a feature anymore. Now everything is happening. Virtually correct and

To be a voter and as a Democrat is in. I. That's the that's that's the understanding I have of your background in your take. Early voting is a good thing. Correct. Voting a whole is a good thing. I mean, I think fat I, mean Tetris. We became a majority minority state in two thousand, four, sixteen years ago But the the the representation whether it's in Congress with the State House or. At a state level is that reflective of the state's population and that's because Texas not a republican state or democratic state for years Texas has been a nonvoting sick. And as voter participation goes up. In the cycle, you're gonNA start seeing the faces and the backgrounds of those that we lack mirror more of the population of Texas and as as we see that across the country. Yeah. One of the things that we. I know at least a couple of weeks ago was kind of a new story was the governor Abbot kind of restricting where people could I think drop off mail in ballots rate I think it was sort of like Harris County, had the same number as any smaller county in West Texas somewhere. So has that has that improved any he he has made that decision in because of it. It again, it's it's an attempt to create. Chaos is an attempt to make it harder for people to vote. Right. Now the just like while we're on. The Texas Supreme Court just ruled that we can have drive thru voting in Harris County. This was a a contention and and literally just as I was getting on the court just ruled which is really important that if you make voting easier for people if you give people multiple options to vote. UC's turnout go up in this what we've seen in Harris. County. Turnouts going up everywhere around the country including Texas. But especially in Harris County because we Harris County has become a democratic counties of the last election cycle and because of that the leadership that's there. Wants to be inclusive wants to hear the voices of people that live in this county. And made many things easier including having drive thru voting like if you can drive through and do a banking transaction if you can drive through and an order the the best fast food. which we have in Texas because we are. Right. We should be able to vote. And I think that that's important. You know the this cycle I wanNA thank cove nineteen.

Biden and Trump spar in final election debate.
"Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, renewed his attacks on Donald Trump's handling of the corona virus pandemic at last night's final debate seeking to bolster his lead in opinion polls with just twelve days to go until the November third election the televised encounter from Nashville. Tennessee. Represented one of the Republican trump's last remaining opportunities to reshape a campaign dominated by a pandemic the disc- killed more than two hundred, twenty, one thousand people in the United States and devastated the. Anyone who's responsible for that many deaths should not remain president of the United States of America Biden said. Trump was far more restrained than at the first debate when he aggressively talked over Biden, defended his approach to the outbreak and claims the worst the pandemic was in the past showing no emotion or regret for the mounting death toll we're rounding the corner said trump who has played down the virus from months it's going away he said falsely. Opinion polls show most Americans disapprove of the president's response to the virus. Several US states including the election swing state of Ohio reported record day increases. In covid, nineteen infections on Thursday evidence. The pandemic is accelerating though trump trails former vice president biden significantly in national polls the contest is much tighter in some battleground states where the election will likely be decided. Trump was pressed on why Americans? Should support him if they're concerned about his comments on racial issues such as black lives matter I am the least racist person in this room trump insisted biden responded by saying trump was one of the most racist presidents we've had modern history. He pause fuel on every single racist fire Biden said noting trump started his two thousand sixteen campaign by attacking Mexicans as rapists. This guy is a dog. Whistle. About as big as a foghorn. Biden said Biden made a character based pitch for his candidacy saying he was anxious to see the results of the presidential election. The character of this country is on the ballot are character is on the ballot. Biden said relatively few voters have yet to make up their minds and trump's window to influence. The outcome may be closing a record forty seven. Million Americans have already cast ballots eclipsing total early voting from two thousand, sixteen election in the final minutes of the debate when the candidates were finally asked what they would do to address the climate crisis trump offered an alternate reality in his world fossil fuels clean and renewable power is problematic.

"Forty cents one of them named Peter. He was too busy picking pecks of pickled peppers to be piping something. I remember what he was doing at the time that's up three and a half percent. So the pipers piping drummers drumming entertained, the upper-class the performance would have been an expression of military strength as well as general facilities dancing, and making of all things, Mary which is the time of year, very festive. But I bet that they would probably all appreciate all the birds that came to the feast if you're asking me about so now rubber is a drummer yourself. I'm not a drummer or drum Asst. I'm a little curious about what it what it costs to hire. You and I'm seeing on this list for twelve of you it costs three thousand thirty eight dollars and ten cents which is up three point five percent. So yeah, we're now charging two hundred and fifty three dollars seventeen and a half cents per drum her drummer per feast. Feast feast. Okay. Yeah. Okay. So as long as to be fed that is gonna charge. It's not too bad. I think actually two hundred fifty bucks is pretty average for what you could pay drummer for two to fill in for a show for you. If you're a band fair enough. It's a little more than it pays to be piping. But significantly less than to be lady, dancing or a Lord. Leaping. I don't know, man. So what if you are a Lord who could play drums or lady who could type? I mean, do you get double wages? I think. Yeah. I don't know. I'm year supposed to leap, and whatever while you pipe or drum. I'm sure you would probably try to pipe if you were also Lieber, but you know, if they're if all the papers were filled then you'd have to settle for. Leaping. I just don't know what they did with all the birds. Do you think they were for eating Caserta swan are very beautiful. But I bet they make are they tasty. I don't I've never had swum probably not. I'm just gonna guess not or else. We would be eating a lot more swan. I've been to well, they're expensive. Well, but I mean. Shirt chickens were a lot more expensive before we started raising them like we do now. Well, maybe Michigan. You can get swan fairly readily. Just go to McDonalds. I'll have the mic swan burger, and I don't think Peter would like that idea. Pita p that was horrible. Do your best. Like, oh, I'm Lois you have to try it paid. Yeah.

"And garden, whatever eighth day, eight maids milking, fifty eight bucks. If you've got was about safe, you've got some maids that needs some milking. Not quite right. You'll spend more than fourteen days county for that. Nope. Milkmaids were associated with what good skin. Yeah. This is interesting at this time period, and they were likely to avoid the smallpox scarred. So many because of their close association with cows. They were exposed to cowpox a much less serious disease that made them immune to smallpox. So because then have a lot of human interaction. It's been a lot of time milking the teats of cows not goats not goes at the time. Okay. Yeah. Wasn't around. Then I was in a different part of the country. They they didn't they choir the cowpox which gave them demonization for the smallpox virus or similar ones. So that they never ended up getting it which didn't start. So that are faced wants scarred. Like average humans at the time got that. And they were very fair skinned women very sought after I'm just trying to figure out fifty dollars for what exactly is that. Like if you wanna hire a milkmaid. It's fifty bucks an hour or is it fifth? Eight dollars for eight milkmaids for an hour to milk your Cal for you. Or are we selling milkmaids right now, and it cost fifty eight dollars to buy one because that's that's a problem. Abraham trafficking. This is an issue, but I don't know the prices so low, but that is I found that on several sites. Fifty eight bucks by far the lowest price on the list. I think for Christmas. I know I'm going to get you. Don't look at the list. Yeah. Please. Don't don't look at the list. My budget's fifty eight bucks. I have a lot of explaining to do I'll even to you and your wife both gonna have them officer. It was a gift that they were gifts from a friend. He was kept singing Christmas. Carol don't know something about Catholicism. I don't know what it was nine days. So icy this one this is this is where they make up for it. Oh my gosh. Yeah. Doesn't pay to be milkmaid. But it does pay to be a dancer if you a dancing lady, the nine ladies dancing would cost you seven thousand five hundred fifty two bucks. Eighty four cents which no change from last year, that's big sigh of relief. So it cost so cost of labor has not gone up for dancers, but their cost of goods has. I mean, I feel sorry for you. If you're a dancer, and you wanna buy Partridge, I don't may end up. Here's here. Yeah. Because the price gone up. You can't have nice things. But you haven't made more money since last year. Nope. Maybe it's time to raise your rates dancing, ladies or milking, maids. Yeah. But the social system plays lords and ladies above common. People living on the farm to say that lady was not the same. As just a female. No lady. Like, my lady, you know, like the whole put on an accent. And act like you're wearing chain link clothing with a sword and have a face mask. And you'd be like mud lose.

"So the switch from four Colly birds to jewelry, we've done bird bird bird bird jewelry than back to bird back divert. Again. Doesn't make sense the five golden rings is likely reference to ring necked pheasants. That is actually very interesting. However in the seventeen eighty publication includes illustrations that clearly depict the five gold rings as being jewelry. However, the bunks as I feel like I've proven very well in this which will be my dissertation. Gordon, I need to transcribe this episode. Or hire someone to do that a lot of work that by the time. It was actually published the song was nearly two hundred years old. So you're thinking that since this was written in the fifteen hundred hundred years. Okay. You know, sixteen hundred sixteen early sixteen hundreds that the they were just gives the birds. Not jewelry. That does make a lot more sense. We've got birds birds birds birds birds birds birds birds birds jewelry more birds, I guess, you're right. Here's a here's a fun fact being the Olympics. Being a yeah, they gave the Olympics. The thing. Being that we are primarily a music and sound podcast. This part's interesting to me the two bar motif for Gold Toe when we get back into the on Anna or golden rings. If you're not a frigging weirdo. Yeah. I know it depends on how weird you are pretty weird that wasn't actually added until nineteen o nine by English composer Frederic Austin. I wonder how it was saying prior to that. Well, if you go to the Wikipedia page all about the twelve days of Christmas, their sheet music is all transcribed out for you on how it was. And how it was changed from you know, revision to revision. Oh, they're a little flourishes added in like parts that we don't say. Now that were there for hundreds of years. It's interesting. Oh, wow. Not like like words or anything, but flourishes like done Dutta the on that we never do. We should we should actually like go to the original version and and. Well, I mean it wasn't. We don't know the original version, but the first the music published. Yeah. And and and like record out okay down. Let's do it. We'll do it. Maybe maybe we'll do for next week. Okay. Okay. So. Yeah. After five comes number six. That's right said look at my notes there to six after five most of the time. I was confused six geese allaying, which I was always confused. I always thought it was six geese allaying five golden rings, six Giza, laying a very complicated and confusing image inside of my like ten year old brain unless you're a big Willie Wonka and the chocolate factory fan where they lay golden eggs, and that's kind of fun so cost of six geese who are laying three hundred ninety bucks up eight point three percent from last year. So if you have laying geese, you're winning it seller's market right now. Yeah. Get rid of those things the geese allaying or grey lag still widespread in England, which are the forefathers of most breeds of domestic geese today.

Oh, man. So seven days seven swans, a swimming thirteen thousand one hundred twenty five bucks, but she'll be happy to know that hasn't changed since last year. I would love seven swans frigging gift seven swans. I feel like that's a lot of money for a bird as a lot of money. So they're actually mute swans species kept in Britain at the time of semi domesticity and considered crown property. This kept them from being hunted to extinction as they were in some other areas. They have now been issues to the United States in our in an invasive species in Michigan. Well, so not quite mute. They are however much quieter vocally than other swans. So here's my question. Why are they so expensive if they're taking over Michigan? I don't know maybe they were expensive. I don't know. Maybe we need to move to you know, Michigan. And try to go hunt. Some swat not hunt.

"And and what they actually mean if not the Christian, meaning what they would mean, otherwise, all right? So Partridge in a pear tree total cost two hundred and twenty dollars and thirteen cents. A point one percent from last year a Partridge Andy pear tree. Did you know that partial pear tree might not be the actual original lyric? I have heard this. And I've also heard that the song may have have some French influence, so right, especially about this particular gift and slash day. So some evidence actually suggests that the lyric Partridge in a pear tree is actually an inquisition of what would have become like begun as a French word for Partridge, which is Pedro PR DRI X, so infringes pedigree. Powdery party pods. Le-? The original line would have been a Partridge comma own perjury. So it sounds like a Partridge in a pear tree. Partridge a Partridge poetry.

"This is something that we need for lots of gifts all the gifts selfish country people. Yeah. So the total number of gifts given in the twelve days of Christmas song is actually three hundred sixty four. If you do the math says compound, right? So it's like by the end of it twelve partridges in pear trees. Yes. And then. Yeah. So it ends up being three hundred sixty four which is consequently the number. Of days in the year three sixty five, but you know, around this to leap here. Just save save the paycheck for one day. So this one's fun. And you look this up, and this is pretty mind boggling in two thousand eighteen drum roll, please the total cost the total cost of goods for the twelve days of Christmas is so drummer with my little global. Thank you. Thirty nine thousand ninety four dollars. And oh, yes. This exact ninety three cents. As a symbol. Yeah. Which is up four hundred and fifty bucks from last year or one point two percent. So that lets you know inflation. Yeah. Cost of living and stuff. But even with that inflation and cost of living going up by one point two percent on some things six of the twelve items. So half of them listed remain the same price as last year, and those include the cost of turtledove, French Hinz calling birds swans, maids and ladies, apparently the Lord's price went up. I wanna know what what exactly like what are they looking for was the reference for maids milking in ladies, dancing, kind of dancing. I don't know where they do the research, but you can look at P N C Christmas price index dot com. And this is actually a thing. And there were researchers and people who did the math and keep tabs on this from year to year to year for a very practical reason, right? Yeah. Like, they kind of track it to see how the economy's doing an base it off of this like for real thing economists. Yes, they actually look at this index PNC Christmas price index dot com to see how the Connie's doing compared to last year the year before. But yeah, you telling me about the cost you did the math here the cost for all three hundred and sixty four gifts if you bought them until eighteen what that number was one hundred seventy thousand six hundred and nine dollars and forty six cents which is up half a percent over last year, man. It's a lot of money. I was going to buy it last year, but he couldn't pull the trigger on it. But this year now is up half a percent candidate. So just for clarification thirty nine thousand ninety four dollars for just the the this while first cyncially, right all the way through one Partridge one pear tree two. Turtle Doug, and this is three three hundred and sixty four gifts. So the whole song as total hundred seventy. Seventy and a half grand. Yeah. That's ridiculous. Did you know that in northern counties of England the song was often called the ten days of Christmas because there were only ten gifts in their version? I didn't know that. Now, you do in the Faeroe Islands. There's a similar Christmas counting song here. The gifts include one feather cheaper or three sides of meat fillet. Like they kind of cut to the chase. You where I'm feathers and meat, bro. For sheep five cows, six oxen, seven dishes, you have to something to eat them, very practical. Of course, eight ponies for the daughter's just got completely. Impractical nine banners active, practical, again, ten barrels barrels of what or for what could be like, you know, a rodeo. Okay. Eleven goats home. You should you should.

"Of history is what I was gonna to say it is the twelve days of Christmas. Not the twelve days of holiday. That's true. And I did a little bit of research on this. Professor, I literally like went back to archives from university the university of Massachusetts Amherst. I know that you've passed away in ninety six six years after this interview. So I did a little bit of of research is well on on his degree was on. Because I was really curious like how do you become an expert on the twelve days? How is this guy? Like does he really note he's talking about or is he just speculate that was that his job in this was his idea like producer of music, Robert Venables says I mean, I mean, I'm expert in whatever this is Christmas is right, right? So first of all, I I read I read the article that this came out of. Yeah. And I it was very interesting. But it does seem like he's just kind of guessing like everybody else and or. And then also, you know, his his degree doesn't necessarily make him even close to an expert on something like this, exactly. And he he says multiple times the only thing that that you know, even has anything to do with Christmas in the song is just the name of the song or about every line. On the blah, blah blah day of Christmas. But also going back to his main argument, and in sort of his deductive reasoning why this is not a Christian song might most likely about a wedding. Is that you know, nothing in the song has to do with with Christianity Catholicism. But back to my point that you're not gonna wouldn't you're right. You're not gonna wanna let everybody know. Hey, this is a Catholic song you can tell by the words. Yeah. Hanging out. But the other thing too is the bible references, very solidly Jesus himself talks about himself as the bridegroom and the church. Wait a second as his bride kind of overlapping little bit, right? What if it is a wedding song and Christian song, it I'm saying it could be and there's so many references all throughout the gospels the the four calling birds saying, you know? That the groom is coming for his bride. And and so yeah. So I don't know it. I think that I that could be further evidence that it is. It is actually in fact a Christian song about Christmas. We got we got deep there. Yeah. All right. So let's them. Okay. So let's just say some interesting facts that we've learned in our research before we get into some really interesting facts just going to lighten the mood a little bit because I got a little deep. All right. So one last thing before we jump over to some interesting facts, the I think in in my research, the biggest sort of like attempt to debunk that it's a Catholic song. Okay. All the articles kind of referenced of that college. Professor. Yeah. There's a couple of them. But yet he was very loud with his speaking on the topic. And so so I just thought it was really interesting that you can find other college professors who argue the opposite. I, you know, I already mentioned earlier Dr Paul spills berry. He's a doctor's got his doctorate has studied history. The all Aji also studied the bible to kind of say that just because a college professor said this is what it is. Oh, he's called. I mean, he must know. They're they're both sides starting from college. Professor. So that's not a just because they have an education higher education that doesn't mean that they are educated in this topic necessarily there's specs of this topic. It's kind of a mystery. Yeah. To me, it makes sense that it just was simply published after it was no longer a secret, maybe make sense. But all right. So fun facts, we kind of covered this first one twelve days didn't end on Christmas. They ended January January started December twenty fifth getting of the twelve days. Yeah. And on the epitome. When ends the twelfth day is actually sometimes called the twelve day, which is obvious or three kings day while the eve of Finney is called Twelfth Night. So kids, if you're listening tell your parents right now that were you're upset that they haven't told you that Christmas actually last for twelve..

Seven sacraments. And that's a very Catholic. That is a reference. Yeah. Eight maids milking, which are the eight beatitudes the sad things. Nine ladies dancing, which is the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit. Glaciers nine of course, ten lords. Leaping. Which are the most obvious the ten commandments eleven pipers piping the eleven faithful apostles the twelfth one betrayed. Yep. For thirty pieces of silver is my favorite one twelve drummers drumming. I wonder why. Drum sound because I get it the twelve points of doctrine in the apostles creed. And it's not just a video game. The apostles creed. By the way, is amazing. You should read it no matter what you believe bullets. Go back. Let's circle back. We skipped number one the true meaning of Christmas Partridge in a pear tree partisan pear tree, which is Jesus Christ. But I wanna talk about that really quick. I read this really cool article in the Vancouver courier from two thousand fifteen and it it kinda pointed to a little bit about the Partridge. So I had heard some other meanings will get to in a moment about what the Partridge could represent a lot of as well as the pear tree. But here is a professor of the New Testament, Dr Paul spills berry at the UB see campus, and he says that both my true love that my true love gave to me is referencing Jesus as much love and. The Partridge in the pear tree. Also, presenting Jesus the Partridge because it's a bird that will sacrifice. It's life to save its children. And and then he goes to enlist all the rest of these. But that is why they picked the Partridge to represent Jesus, right? I tried to look that up actually and couldn't find either that it does or doesn't any bird watchers or bird enthusiasts out there? Av. Aviary avian a called. I have no idea. Well, if you know anything about partridges, please let us know other than the song because we don't even know about that. Apparently, they hang out in patriots a lot or maybe we just put together for the songs purpose. Well, if you're if you're not on board with it being a Catholic catechism teaching utility back in times of persecution. Maybe you can jump on this one. It's probably a love song. And this is where I'm sitting with it right now, and it's probably about a wedding. So Edward Finney a professor of classics at the university of Massachusetts in Amherst told the south. East Missourian in nineteen ninety. Some of them are rather impossible to give talking about the gifts like eight maids milking, nine ladies, dancing, all those ladies, and dancing, and pipers and drums imply, this is a wedding, which makes sense like you're lining up like some entertainment, and you're inviting some people that are of higher stature in entertainment. The song is loaded with references to for Tilleke like the maids milking, lords leaping, Giza laying..

"It to where they can help escape or get, you know, teach them ways without actually writing anything down a lot of them had to do with old songs. But my point is if that's true. And what you're saying is true. Then how were they even able to celebrate Christmas? I mean, if they were persecuted by death and with death as a punishment for any kind of Christian, Protestant belief. Why are they able to celebrate Christ's with Christmas at all? Well, it wasn't Christian Protestant. It was Chris. Catholic Christian Catholic. Because. Celebrating Jesus Christmas all that was not bad or wrong. And so shared by Protestant and Catholic, absolutely. But the idea being that the twelve days of Christmas is about the the Catholic catechism, and we'll get into that. Each of the the twelfth things is what they represent supposedly supposedly. But yeah, I I I don't know. I'm very biased. I want to believe that. That's what it is about. I think it's a cool story. But it also sounds like one of those chain letters that. You would like, you know, I am a Christian, and I think is cool too. But I think it does sound very Christian like something that Christians would do be like, you know, what let's make this even more about the season. We'll in the argument is that it definitely kinda got it start as literally a chain Email. In fact, I found a a chain Email that was circulated in nineteen ninety eight sure pointing out a bunch of stuff, but that chain Email essentially what I started doing for this. Podcast was okay. So if this is what this said back in ninety eight and that all the claims that it's it's about Christian elements. Come from this sort of. Conjecture then I'm going to set out to disprove this chain, Email and see what happens. So that's what I was trying to do and the more I dug into the more. I was like this can't be disproven, but it can't necessarily be proven. I know I know so another point against that theory would be the happy bouncing nature of the song, and how that didn't fit the nature of the Catholic church at the time at all, you know, the Catholic the music in the Catholic church is very very we'll traditional now, but there's certain notes and formations and I'm not on board with it. But certain ways that songs are put together in the Catholic church. And you would think they're gonna make a song out of this as a teaching ritual that would make it probably fit the whole Catholic. You know form the formation of Catholic song. So you're right. You're not wrong. However, if you're going to make a song to be able to sing in front of Protestants that would kill you. If they. You were Catholic. You're probably not going to write the song point sound like a Catholic church song. That's a good point. Okay. So let's let's let's stick a pin in that. And let's talk about what if you're right. And that's true. And this was all about the Catholic catechism in secret ways of passing on information and teaching let's talk about all these twelve days are in that theory in mind with that theory of mind. All right. So keep in mind. And one of the arguments I heard against this was that each of the twelve elements have nothing to do with what they supposedly represent. But if this is supposed to be a coded song sung in secret at a time when it was illegal to be Catholic. You're not going to you're going to try to not make it obvious. You're going to sing about things that aren't Turkey or Catholic makes it would be the first day of Christmas. My mother gave to me Jesus on the cross. Hey, a man hanging from a tree. Oh, sounds really bad. That would be teaching the wrong thing. Mary Christmas Christmas. Gosh, mama, even have this one. Thank you. I was thinking more horrified. But I think the other way I saw the look on your face. I wanted this is the one no I'll have this guy. Okay. So let's start on day two. Okay. So two turtle doves. And this idea of what it means is the, you know, the old news has made the two testaments. And this is this is very widely accepted. If you Google the true, meaning of the twelve days of Christmas, you're gonna find this as the primary behind the scenes answer, but we have more..
