China Bans Under-18s From Playing Online Games for More Than an Hour a Day

"The gaming banned for minors in china. Now obviously it's a little bit more complicated but it's also not entirely unexpected this new law supersedes twenty nine thousand nine rules that allowed ninety minutes per day and forbade playing between ten pm and eight. Am with the justification back then being that well kids shouldn't be playing too many video games and they shouldn't be up late such that will affect their schooling. Which is i mean fair enough. But whether that is the rule of the state or the role of the parent is something that i think a lot of people would disagree about The twentieth nineteen measures also limited minors monthly spending on games to a maximum of fifty seven. Which appears to be unchanged. This new policy also enforces a policy requiring game companies to require players. Real names when logging it. I mean imagine. Imagine having imagine giving up your minor data protection laws in order to make sure that those miners who companies are now by law collecting information from are not playing too many video. Games that's That's an interesting double edged sword right there. The press release on state media said it is indisputable that indulging online games effects normal study life and teens physical and mental health. I could see that young. Chinese gamers are lashing out at the new rules. One objection sexual consent. It fourteen at sixty and you can go to work but you have to be eighteen to play games. This is really a joke. Know good observation as well. I don't think. I could have put it better myself now to be clear. There's nothing that the chinese government can do to prevent minor from playing a single player game completely disconnected from the internet. If there was. I'm sure they would be trying to figure out how to do that. In fact my understanding is that functionality. Like that could end up being baked into game platforms like the chinese version of steam. So that if you are playing a single player offline game Could theoretically be enforced. But my understanding is there's no actual enforcement or attempt to enforce any kind of rule like that. This is mostly focused on online

"My name's george. Miller and my guest this month is rory scoth on an edinburgh based writer who has an article this month. Addition of the paper entitled is scotland closer to independence. Rory is also co author of the book. Rock wins a treacherous guide to the state of scotland published. Twenty sixteen. And when. I spoke to him recently. I was kid to get his update. On the current state of scotland. The two thousand sixteen brexit referendum in which scotland voted strongly to remain in the eu. And boris johnson's twenty nine thousand nine hundred. Uk general election confirmed growing divide between how scotland and england see their respective futures. The scottish national party secured a fourth successive electoral victory in last month's scottish parliamentary elections but the path to independence is still far from straightforward. So where does the snp go from here in pursuit of that objective. We'll come onto that. But rory's piece begins with a comment margaret thatcher made in the nineteen eighties whereas she offered a vision of modernisation. She asserted her. Opponents wanted to turn the uk inter museum society. Rory rights thatcher underestimated the appeal of museum society labor overestimated last him. To tell me more was one of the key things to understand about. Thatcherism is that this was not a return to the nineteenth century. This walson the state stripping away all the gains of one thousand nine hundred eighty five. There was an element of -absolutely. But really it was something new the power of neoliberalism as i think a lot of people and left know very well. The power of neoliberalism was at a offered.

Receivers to Target in the Late Rounds of your Dynasty Rookie Draft - burst 04

"Turnaround. Flip them for profit moving onto the next guy who ran five picks later in the nineteenth pick of the guy that i am super high on. Its the army brown from north carolina. Going to the washington football team and let me tell you why i like damn brown. The rebound has six one. One hundred eighty nine pounds of has pretty ideal size for receiver but and north carolina. he had to terrific seasons. He's past two seasons in twenty twenty. He had fifty five catches for one thousand ninety nine yards and the twenty nine thousand nine hundred fifty one catches for one thousand three hundred four forty nine yards and oh by the way throughout. He had twelve touchdowns in his sophomore year in towns in his junior. This is pretty impressive. Because i'm not sure if the North carolina has had great quarterback play particularly either. It is not. I'm not super familiar with a north carolina. The program but how how how should be the number one pick probably next year so they. They've had a pretty good quarterback he's other classmate that's right. I did hear about how so okay. They did have how but anyway. A guy putting up static this two years as Sophomore and junior. And he's doing this by the way with fifty one and fifth in fifty five receptions so it's not like he's getting a ton of targets he's maximizing opportunities putting up staff that are up there with with the top of the top and so this is a guy that You could argue count. Wise in what he's produced typically makes him atop success in receiver in this class. But oh by the way. He's fallen into the third round. Now the draft and he's actually ending up in a landing spot better than the guys that went before him because the washington football team they have terry maclaurin but do they have a number two receiver. No the don't cam. Sims is not going to cut it. Let's let's be real here for second. Kempson is not going to cut this guy who's going to step in right away and be the number two receiver so if anything. I can see this guy having a top five season as far as rookie receivers this this upcoming season because there is such an immediate chance for brown shine. I loved the town. And i love the situation. So both those things matchup for me and ryan patrick in their offense while just knowing ryan fitzpatrick. He's a guy who likes to sling the ball He's not free for big throws and yami brown is a guy that could be a target while so this is an the situation to really like especially in the strip term but i think his talent overall what is what will help him. Secure the number two role for washington in the long term. You did forget. Courtesy meals with their in the offseason. Curtis samuel okay. yes courtesy. You might be the number two receiver. But i'm not. I'm not saying that kurdistan wills a lot in geometry breath. If i think those are two big comparable players and the down brown can still end up. Overtaken curtis samuel for the number two role because it's not like samuels established in washington. Anyway he's gonna they're gonna walk on equal playing fields if anything. Yeah to co plank. Roads honestly yeah. So i mean i you know how high was on diane. Be brian i think i was probably than anybody else in the industry pre-draft in you know the fact that he didn't get a super high draft capital. I think a lot of people would just never really caught up to where the hype was going was headed towards So now he kinda ended up back back to where he's at. I know you said you saw them. You know at the beginning of the third round in. I'm in motion address. At pretty much where i got him every draft. You know there was two guys. I walked away with almost in every draft i. It was karen's marshall because if he was following the second taking them and diani bryant third. I was taking him no matter what and wasn't trained. Now those picks and i wasn't moving up or down at sticking with it. So i ended up with jami round maybe beating my number one player at of all my dynasty leaks. So you know. I'm i'm really high. I think there's a lot of potential to proprietor curse. Amiel i do think we'll we'll out touch him for sure year. One you know. But terry mccaren is another guy you know. He did not have first round draft capital as a rookie. So he's only got a couple of years left before they have to really choose on renewing his contract whether they wanna pay him if they view him to be a. You know an elite receiver that they wanna pay top ten top twenty money. They might just let him walk. You know and if that's the case the brown is almost a cologne terry records. You know he. He averaged over twenty yards a catch with a lot of volume in college. Which is one of. it's got to be one. The highest of abo scouted and You know the way he wins is he. Wins deep wins. He's a burner he gets out feel and i think there's actually a lot of room for him to grow because didn't see him run a really complex route tree and north carolina. They didn't ask them to you. Know and as kirsten says you know why why would the team tell him to do something different and teach them other rouse when when he consistently wins for twenty on the field every time you know. They don't need them to do that but an nfl. He probably has higher upside now because he can still learn. The trees like we saw with decay metcalf in some other like a jay brown. You know the same knock on metcalf was he. He only ran Slants down the in the Mississippi offense coming out of college and look how that turned out you know now. He's one of the better route runners in the entire league to mix with the athletes athletic ability. So i really liked the army brown. And i think that You know if you're getting him in the late second and early dirty of your rookie drafts. I think you're you're walking away with one of their players in the draft. One of the guys that we both really like. You can expect for geometry brown to produce put up some big

Ross and Carrie Are Down to Earth: Grounding Edition

"When i kind of looked at earth thing i thought i remembered all the explanations being in terms of ions and negative ions and positive ions have been thinking about something else because in the book. It's not even listed in the index. I haven't seen any mention of. I mean it's the same concept. They're talking about the flow of electrons. I don't know if you encountered any talk of ions. But i don't think so far. There's plenty of other scienc- language. Yeah yeah so. We kind of divvied up the work here. And now we're going to trade after this episode and continue but i just this week watched the official grounding or thing documentary And i also was using a pad we got that plugs in. And then you stand on it. You're supposed to stay on it for fifteen minutes a day if possible So i've been using that this week. So i was delving into the literature. I think a little bit less than you. But at least in the documentary the talk has pretty much exclusively about electron electrons. Okay i could tell you the difference. I mean an eye on is just a compound or adam that is either positively or negatively charged. Oh right okay. Now that is another way of stating the same thing. We have a transfer of electrons happening. Were about to happen. Got it so the first product that we bought for this adventure was back in twenty nine thousand nine hundred. Hey lau we've got. We've had this for a while. Yes a little over two years as we were planning to do this quite a while ago. I was just something where we thought we gotta do.

He's your work boyfriend joke about that. That's right yeah car jokes about my man crush on drew. Because he's just such a like song we'd just love to hang out all the time and cars like oh go. Hang out with your boyfriend. He wrote me one day by texting. Anassa guys ever played around with this whole earth thing and you could tell. He felt silly. Admitting this to me but he's also curious about my input and us putting all these qualifiers around it. You know it makes me feel better. I understand it might be nonsense. But i have this blanket that i use and makes me feel great plug it into the wall and i feel like i sleep better. I was like well. That's good. isn't it. Electric blanket

Singleness: Burden and Gift

"Join us today as we talk about singleness as well as what it means to be single and life in the church join us in having the conversations that shape us greetings tobin. Welcome to another conversation. Come listeners this amount of baptist. Podcast how you doing tobin. I'm doing good. How are you doing doing all right. It's been a tough week for for us. Say you recently lost a loved one in your family anthem. I'm mourning the loss of a friend. So you know different times during cova de wouldn't you say oh for sure. It's definitely a tough time to lose somebody during covid because you don't exactly get to see them funeral plans start looking different and there's a whole bunch of other different support. Networks are starting to look differently than they did before hand right. I was even thinking we talked about death last week. And then it kind of hits you personally so it's very interesting right. It's it's just part of our lives and when we don't think about it don't deal with it sometimes for caught unawares but yeah it's good to have to have that background and even as we are recording this we are almost at where death also plays a central role in the story and to defeat of death. Of course as well so yeah. It's very interesting. Yeah very much so. We had one of our recommendations to talk about singleness this week from a listener. Yeah it's quite the switch from death and there's quite a few ways we can take this conversation right so we'll kind of see how it unfolds. We'll see how the cookie crumbles but we could talk about singleness as an experience of individuals within the western culture right. We're probably talk about in our second half singleness as it relates to biblical values and and and culture and what the bible says there right and then we can also talk about a little bit in the beginning now about how singleness in psychology relate to one another. Yeah that's a good idea. Why don't you start us off with that Even as you're talking about it's interesting to even think about what is singleness right because singleness can be so many different things depending on how you define singleness and not being singled. So what do you think right. So single head is if we were to come up with something like a working definition here i would say. Single single hood is defined by not being in relation with another person. And i think the traditional idea of cygnus is in a romantic setting okay and you had some statistics on singleness in canada. As well which. I found fascinating i did and when i read these statistics. They're not exactly using the same definition. I am right and from what i understand. These are talking about single households so in canada. there there was an article in twenty nine thousand nine that wrote that compared to nineteen eighty six in two thousand sixteen. We had approximately double the amount of people who lived alone and so that means that we have about four million canadians across canada. Who who are single. Who who live alone and now with someone who provides that romantic so seventy percent of the four million have previously been in a relationship which would include widowed divorced or separated by any other means twenty percent of this four million are currently in a relationship with somebody but they just don't live in the same household right and then fifty percent of these individuals also have a child. Roughly speaking two million canadians live in a single parent or guardian household and are pulling triple or quadruple duty in order to support and care for the children or the dependence and simply don't have the same resources that we do with having an extra person there right fascinating. So when i asked you about the definition singleness you talked about not being in a meaningful relationship or romantic attachment to someone but then as you're giving us each statistics you already seeing a little bit of a clash with how you defined versus how perhaps canada or society defines it right because society defines this as just romantic attachment. I was just thinking about singleness before we even we even talk today and How we just assumed that you have to be part of a meaningful. You have to report a meaningful romantic relationship or attachment in order to not be single whether that's married or living with somebody or at least being boyfriend girlfriend whatever we wanna do whatever we want to call it but the experience of singleness goes beyond just that right. I mean The i was reading some articles about this author deborah hirsch. She's a christian author. She's a little bit out there because she talks about sexuality but she talks about homosexuality is not just a sexual expression within a sexual relationships ship between two bodies but that sexuality transcends also into every relationship we have because we we can't just separate parts of our being. We can't just say this part of me sexual in this. Part of me is relational. And this part of me is spiritual we are one hole and so it transcends. I heard a talk by her. And so she talked about what that means for single people and and celebrate people people who choose to be celebrate in that setting. And that doesn't mean that these people don't need community or meaningful relationships of attachment even if they're not romantic attachments over shirt and i like that idea of the embodied whole as you can't we can't segment like like you said sexual the the spiritual whatever that it all comes together as one person right that being said there are individuals out there who would find they can be in a non sexual relationship. That'd be classically to find a single but aren't troubled by that Right so you're looking at the asexual community where relationships with out that sexual component still fulfilling and meaningful right right and the flip side to that is you have people who have this meaningful community. Who who have lots of deep meaningful attachments to other people but are longing for would consider themselves being single and lonely and longing for a deeper expression for deeper romantic and sexual attachment to someone exactly while there are some that. Do not need that romantic or other person attachment to the same level. There's other people that crave and need it and desire so talk to me a little bit about what that means in terms of how how you live life and how you engage life as a single person. Well okay so growing up in canada as this as a single person who is wanting a relationship and can't find it what is what is that. Psychologically like and i would i have. I think i have a few friends who would fit this category and i just from conversations with them it's not a enjoyable experience Even in my own past bake as someone who from eighteen onwards wanted to have like girlfriends and wanted to be in those in in in relationships with other beings who felt that long. I've had a taste of how powerful that loneliness and that drive four relationship can be right and then there's a certain amount of feeling of rejection and isolation loneliness from not having that being fulfilled so as you're talking my question comes up. What's the. I am trying to word this but where maybe i'm using the wrong words but where does longing turned into obsession or or need so so what i mean by that is can you have that long. Can you desire something and still be content. With present circumstances. I mean that comes down to how you define contentment I would say that if contentment means you're all right with the circumstance. Then no because you still desire that relationship okay We talked quite a number of episodes back about the dark night of the soul right about longing for something how You desire of reality of presence to be with in in my circumstance was to be with god and how reality circumvents that there then becomes a conflict between what is felt. And what is known. That being said you've already touched on this with the obsession component right but then there is also that danger of it becoming an obsession of turning that pain right into something negative such as is found in some communities such as the involuntary salvator the in self community online right and then what you find in those communities is that a lot of this pain and turmoil gets turned outwards against other communities where they start blaming other people and other things for their own loneliness and rejection and in doing so their reactions become a negative coping mechanism an unhealthy behavior to try and alleviate the discomfort or rationalize it so then that goes back to my original question so because because my worry is that that we're kind of setting up a binary in the sense that i want to be in a more committed relationship of one sort or another. Let's call it romantic for for better for lack of a better word. So i want to be under romantic relationship. I'm either in the stage of wanting that and the more i wanted to do the closer i get to it being an obsession in my life or i get it and then i'm fine but there is no room to to to live a. Is there no room then to live a life. That says hey i would really desire this but i will also be content. Happy with where i am right now and and live into that to the fullest. And that's that's tricky because we don't have a lot of social narratives that kind of give us that framework to experience singleness in a healthy way. So if i were to break that down a little bit when we watch movies in rome these romantic movies and stuff. It gives us a lot of even you even say it's either healthier unhealthy. That's not me to judge right now but it still gives you those narratives to kind of go and say oh. This is what it's like to be in relationship. This is how i can experience relationship and and dating and being with another person. We don't have movies about what it's like to be alone at least not popularly right right or if they are they're fairly depressing right. There fairly depressing. It's all about not being in that relationship and own. Maybe i'll get into that relationship. There's the whole trope in the late. Two thousands of the manic pixie dream girl where it's all about these writers hollywood writers that use women and relationships to give men character growth in arcs in the movie right so it's all about being relationship pure like it's not about the expression of singleness as healthy in itself. It's about relationship as fixing your problems so that not then create problematic relationships as well. In the sense that i'm finding all my fulfillment than in that relationship once. I do find a relationship where i where i haven't grown as a person or don't have enough emotional intelligence to be content with the person that i am because the person that i was always looking for someone else to to complete me exactly. It creates problems both in relationships expectations for relationships and for people who also want to enter relationships. Right and even individually it creates a learning process or provides an opportunity for a healthy learning environment. Where you start to empathize with your partner where you can put yourself. In their shoes and learn that your flaws also have to be negotiated with their flaws and that there's a balancing act and interpersonal dynamics. Come in and i mean that turns even so now. We're talking about dating but that that that's the same thing with with friendships as well right. If you're i can see a scenario. I've seen lots of scenarios where where you're not content. You're not necessarily content with who you are and so you're you're expecting a lot of out of that friendship relationship for your happiness for your contentment even for your self esteem for the way you Assess your own value that kind of stuff And that can even come out in familiar. Familial relationships as well right where you depend. It's about on another to define who you are and to give you that esteem right and so i mean maybe we're getting off track but that's kind of what singleness conversations are in the sense. Is that the healthiest relationships in our lives are are where we have Some sort of independence isn't it. Yeah yeah independence crates freedom. Authenticity for who you are. In relation to the overall relationship that being said we also live in a society that needs us to be in relationship so to further expand on this point there is there has been studies. I was just scrolling passively I love read it i. I'm on it all day while just pathway scrolling on read it and they were talking about how people live longer when they're in hell in healthy relationships. Oh interesting and lots of articles in the medical community about how people who come in with their partners rent have better treatment results and partly to have somebody to talk to and somebody else to gather information. Yeah whatever the reason is another person there right even just as a tax bonus is is beneficial. So we have. We live in a society that set up for couples and yet the dangerous. become too codependent. And while there's this whole codependence piece talked about but then how as a single person do you live right right so if your approach this as as a single person you see the i live in a society that needs couples that needs you know somebody to stay home and clean the house or look after the kids while somebody else needs to go work. How do i be both people. Yeah or even attach detaches. I think in our society we attach maturity to to relationships as well right so a part of adulting is to be in a meaningful relationship. I always found that whole areas adulting if being an adult but somehow of verb but anyways You know like you are considered writes so you are considered to be a more mature adults in comparison to other people your age if you're in a meaningful relationship and on top of that if you do certain things if you have a certain job if you have a house and if you have kids right over sure i even feel that in school like what. I'm twenty five now. But because i'm married all of a sudden that puts me in a whole nother brand right of society all of a sudden i'm more mature i'm responsible and i'm sure if i had kids out even put me in another bracket above 'cause now i'm looking after little right little little children but as as we're talking i'm just wondering if we wouldn't have a healthier society if we we would learn what it looks like to live healthily in singleness for a time of our lives even just a how we talk about singleness it would be helpful for the individuals who are signal Because we are seeing a rise in people who live alone or who aren't conventionally married or unconventionally being with somebody else and just to harry healthier narratives for them to us and to understand themselves and even understand ourselves with. Kate will greatly benefit us as a community as a as a broad social community as christians and canadian. A do well. Let's transition a bit into the bible here. where So where have if. I'm a single person. And i wanted and i'm and i'm just lonely as all can be. Have you found that. Most people find their strength. I think were most people go in terms of the bible. At least we can talk about how we talk about church. How about single isn't church. And how we treat single people insertion. That's a separate thing from how the bible talks about singleness. I mean jewish culture. Very much thought that you had be married that that's just you know that that's the purpose of your life is to be married if you're mad at your purposes to have a have a wife so that your wife can have children and and your family line keeps going and if you if you were a woman you know your goal was that for your family to find to find the man or family who would take you i mean as a patriarchal society is but there is no. I don't know if there's a real allowance The only time there is conversation is about widows right and how you treat widows and so in that sense. The old testament is much more progressive than the surrounding cultures of its time and makes allowance for widows and treats them well and in that sense even relationships are still political. Yeah in that. It's not about so much being with somebody else. As it is a way to further your lineage as a way to get some gain right and not saying that there isn't a component. Alright love between why. Perhaps there is some counter cultural stories even embedded within the old testament to see the story of of ruth and her mother-in-law. Ruth naomi. i mean ruth's story restoring does end in marriage but it's very much naomi who makes it happen and they owe me you know. She kind of becomes a mother kind of surrogate mother to son that ruth bears. I mean that's how the story ends in the bible. Were supposed to see that image. Even though she's not married so it's a fairly counter cultural story there is rahab the prostitute who becomes part of israel. There's the story of tamar who forces kind of what we would call a constitutional crisis. It's not a constitutional crisis but it's a crisis of the law for for for one for for one of the for one of the men that was supposed to marry her. Her father in law's supposed to marry her according to the law because her husband has passed away but he refuses and so eventually she she forces her way into this. There's the story of astor who who kind of becomes part of this abusive kings. Well she's the she becomes the queen to disabuse of king and rescue the people of israel. I think all of those are somewhat counter cultural in the sense that that they're describing to us non normative relationships within that paradigm but also some of these women become not all of them that i mentioned but some of them are part of the story of jesus right so matthew mentions for women in the genealogy of jesus and even though clearly there had to be men for those four women to have borne children has not the men that are identified. It's the women that are identified. And so it already kind of focuses more on the person under relationship that that they were in jesus himself never married according to the gospels. All of a sudden you have these single people doing things right. i mean we. We don't we don't know of mary. Martha lazarus or married. We never find out. They are just people right. The assumption probably is that they would be. But but even when lazarus dies. we don't hear about his wife morning right. We we hear about his sisters. Mary magdalene she married. We don't know right. I mean you go down the list of all these characters and somehow we don't often find out about their familial relationships and isn't there a passage in there somewhere about how it it in summary. It's like get married if you want to. But you know your your relationship with the lord is i and you gotta serve that primary. I corinthians that where it is. I post writing. Yeah i mean. Paul paul is also single. There's a hint there. in first. Corinthians read the passage wrongly sometimes. But there's a hint there. In first corinthians step maybe at one point paul was married and he considers himself a widower. I've never heard preached in church but there is a hint there because he's talking to the widows and widowers and he's co counseling them to stay single and he says be as i am so he identifies himself with them. He doesn't leader. He talks to to what he calls the virgins which would be the single people who are potentially also engaged to be married which is different than the widows widowers and so there he doesn't say as i am because he's not. He doesn't see himself like that. He sees himself like a widower. So but in that passage. Basically what paul is saying. Yeah Marriage is a good thing and if you want to be married be married and if you don't wanna be married you have a gift to bring to the conversation as well and the way the we paul seasons in that conversation is gift that single people bring is is an attachment to church and into the work of god. I mean this comes out of paul of paul paul's idea anyways is that jesus coming back soon. You know. And so he saying why. Why waste your time getting married. We have so much stuff to do. Let's go get working and proclaiming. Jesus christ but that's the gift that single people that that's the gift that he sees himself bringing to the church as well right. I'm single so i can go and serve god and i can go and proclaim and so So he very much kind of trying to tell people. Stay in whatever situation you are. Don't get divorced if you're married. Stay married and have sex. He literally. I mean literally what he says. Don't don't all of a sudden now because you think that you're that you're christian. Stop having sex. If you're in a marriage you know. There's no you're not holier if you're in a celebrate marriage with somebody then if you're in a sexual relationship with somebody and so That's kind of his frame of mind right and so what. I take that passage. Don't i think what we should take a passage is that there's legitimate calling and gift to singleness within our congregations and we haven't really acknowledged that ever or very rarely and as as you're talking here. This is reminding me of a story that. I read quite quite a quite a few years ago when i was taking a family and marriage class. I believe that was the course. I was in for this. Where was talking about An evangelical preacher who was off doing missionary work off off in the boonies somewhere and then his daughter right was or his family was having trouble and distress and their daughter. I think even commit suicide over his lack of involvement. Yeah this is a story that i read in a book called sweet surrender by dennis hiebert and the question raised is what becomes more important family or missionary work right well. My critique on this was that he shouldn't this this preacher guys should not have even gotten married in the first place if he couldn't have committed to the relationship as a whole right right. And you know. I i mean before we talk. Today i went and reread some of this stuff. And i corinthians seven and you you can go and read yourself there paul saying that. If you're married you are committing to that relationship and you need to give it a significant amount of energy. That is your calling by god within marriage so you you know the the the calling that god puts on you cannot supersede that calling that god has put on you for that marriage. Because you're asked to be in this relationship of mutual self giving love so you have to kind of buy into that but if you don't need to be in a relationship like that then you can give some of that energy to the work at hand or two one way to one way to to translate it. There has to present necessities. Paul says And so that's that's how paul would put would address it. I don't think paul would understand. I don't think. Paul understand our fascination with saying hey To be to be a good human. I need to be part of a relationship. I need to be in a marriage any to have kids. And then i'm going to dedicate all my energy to my work or to my church. You know for pastors or or to this and ev- this relationship that i've committed to is going to take second place to another relationship i've inserted into it and then using jesus own words to kind of To support that is weird. I don't think paul would ever do that exactly. And i think we put this pressure on missionary work that It becomes the one and only calling for a christian to be part of god's works in the world. Yeah and what. Paul is trying to say i think is hey. If you're single now you can do mission or missionary work. You're not attached to the work of your marriage covenant relationship so why not not stay the way you are. He's trying to tell these people in corinthians why not stay the way you are and do missions work. If that's what you feel like god is calling you to see in our mind. We have turned completely around. We often how we are. We have such distrust of single people especially single men that we say. Hey no-no before you can do ministry worker before you can do missionary work and this is very much agenda conversation because it's not the other way around. We don't distress single women we asked him. and then. So that's an noticing this even as we speak right here. I've been hesitant to talk about this call. That paul has and says. Hey you're single and you can work for the church because to me. It sounds abusive. Make single women do often. We send them out to be missionaries. We asked him to serve. You don't have children. you can do this right. We don't do the same thing for single men or very scared of single men and if want men to do any kind of ministry. We want men to be married and have children because that safety as so. That's that's even the gender dwayne which we approach singleness right. And i think you're in a very unique position at thirty to even speak about that because of your work now with Generation rising coming up and with your older work at in out of town or you did that sort of abroad. Work right where you've seen students and individuals who either as a couple or who are dating or who are single going off and doing this work in in in africa or or wherever you sent them thinking of even thinking about who hires churches in terms of pastors right. It's okay for youth pastor. It's okay for a youth pastor to be single sometimes right because they're young Oftentimes if men right they're young. That's alright we prefer a single woman or a married woman to our children's ministry because they're just more approachable to children. Once you're past you get into a more. An associate pastor position or a lead pastor position. We really want that pastor to be married whether they're a woman or a man we really would like them to be in a committed relationship because that to us is the highest ideal. The highest value within the congregation. Right i mean. I don't think i've been to a church where we've had a single lead pastor. I have. I have not attended a church like that anyways. No i'm trying to think. I don't think i've ever had lead pastor as a single person. i've had associate pastors. Who were then in a divorce relationship or in a separate relationship right and that could be a whole nother podcasts. But yeah yeah. And i can't speak to their experiences. No no but within at least within the evangelical world that i've grown up in yet it's marriage seems to be this high ideal and so any time we talk about singleness and we talk about singleness even as a calling or as an opportunity We tend to think in our minds we tend to think about singleness calling opportunity for women not so much for men and we also tend to not put enough support around single people So we're tend to not give them the same community and while we say. Hey we value your singleness and if that's what god calls you to. Do we want to embrace that and you you can. You have something to give to us. We still want to celebrate mother's day and church and get frustrated when we celebrate we. Don't we still want to celebrate. Father stay in church and get frustrated when we don't and I can just. I mean i make a point of saying something to that effect every mothers and fathers day and i can just hear the roles you know i know the is aren't actually rolling but i can just hear that there's that pressure on you with the congress within the congregations like there there goes rafael again. Trying to be all politically correct not politically correct. It's an acknowledgment that our humanity is not just defined by our roles as fathers and mothers in within that attached relationship And committed relationship of of of marriage. I mean are not the only vision for for humanity not even in the bible. You know i mean. Let's talk about men. That aren't that that we wouldn't consider being fully men. I mean there's daniel and his three friends there most likely unix. Because that's what would happen in the bible. Once they were once they were taken as prisoners in palace. We have a whole book stories that we love to tell our kids about daniel right and we talk about the end times. We love to go to daniel and talk about you know that kind of stuff. There's there's a whole church in ethiopia that today still claims and traces their lineage. Back to a conversation with an ethiopian eunuch on-road from jerusalem Who's who has converted and baptized than an the ep ethiopian. Church still says. That's where we come from because he goes back right but somehow we've said that the highest ideal value is marriage is is being committed marriage with two children and suburban suburban right. Right right. I mean even within our culture. We do not have father's day and mother's day and a far saying on mother's day or a single people's they right we just don't either and so i would say for maybe the if we were to sum everything up that there's a really deep call. Or there's a really deep spirituality to being single and that there is special and it's needed and it's not any worse of a calling that being said we also need to adjust start cultural narratives and what we say in how we talk. And how he fee with people that needs to shift so that they can also feel that calling especially this has been another episode of the modern anna baptist. Please join the conversation by emailing us. At conversations that shape us gmail.com or joining us on twitter at modern anna baptist. Either way we'd love to hear from you and grow with you and continue to have fantastic conversations.

Cruise lines are preparing to start sailing in the us again. As soon as this summer as wwl are ns.

Hundreds of people had their to admire the sun sinking into the gulf of mexico. Artists sell their work one performer. Juggles fire another balances a bike on his head out on the water. There's a big catamaran on a sunset cruise around boat shaped like a tiki hut with a bar in the middle motors past fishing. Boats had in for the evening but one kind of vessel is missing for decades cruise ships.

Canadas invisible victims of femicide

"Julie lalonde is an educator and an activist she is. the author of resilience is futile. And she is one of canada's leading women's rights advocates julie. Hi thanks for having me. Of course I wish it was under better circumstances but we recorded an episode of this show. I last year a couple of months into the pandemic and our experts Was saying that this was likely going to end up being a horrible year for violence against women and femicide and now i guess we have some some data on that. Yeah we have confirmation that twenty. Twenty was in fact a deadlier year for women in canada. The air prior so last year. A hundred and sixty women were killed in canada versus twenty nine thousand nine which was one hundred forty six again in twenty twenty. We had high percentage of women killed by men so ninety percent of those accused in last year's time aside our men so we're talking about a very clearly gendered problem. How surprising are those numbers or or not at all. They're not surprising to me. Because i have been doing this work for so long. And i know that women are killed at very high rates largely by men who claim to love them but last year. I mean there's so much that's happened in the past year that it's easy to forget but last year we also had canada's mass shooting so we had twenty three people killed in nova scotia and that's certainly saw a spike in the rates of Deaths of women last year and for example. What is on trend. Is that the deadliest place for women in. Canada are the territories but nova scotia was also added to the list last year in large part because of what happened horrifically last april in nova

Most Americans Support Tougher Guns Laws

"Americans support tougher gun laws. That's what new usa today. Ipsos poll found but is washington bureau. Chief susan page tells us republicans support has fallen and the issue is even more partisan than it was a few years ago. We took this poll on tuesday and wednesday right after that terrible mass shooting in boulder the second shooting in the space of a week in the united states. And it's similar to paul. We took about two years ago in august. Twenty nine thousand nine. That was also in the aftermath of two terrible shootings. The ones in el paso in dayton on the one hand. Two thirds of americans support tougher gun laws. So that's a really significant majority but the news poll is it. Support among republicans has fallen off a cliff when we asked this question two years ago. Fifty four percent of republicans a majority republicans supported stricter gun laws. That's dropped to a third thirty five percent.

Fortnite for beginners

"Fortnight is a massive multiplayer online video. Game developed by epic games released in two thousand seventeen is available in three distinct game mode versions so they otherwise share the same general game. Play in game engine But these three distinct versions are fortnight. Colon save the world. Okay fortnight no colon battle royale fortnite battle royale and fortnight creative. Oh there's three of them. So the objectives vary depending on which mode you're playing but the broad goal of fortnight is to survive against a prolonged force antagonist who will attempt to eliminate you okay so for night begin from an internal game jamat epoch game so there in american video game and software developer and publisher based out of north carolina So they did this internal game jam around twenty eleven after they published the game gears of war so a game jam which i only recently learned at work a game. Jam is a contest where participants try to a video game from scratch with a specific deadline. So it's usually like twenty four hours or you know maybe maybe seventy two hours to work to come up with this so it's kind of like a like a creativity burst. I'll shut the the bowl of that is to work with other people and create a game from scratch so depending on the format again your participants might be in teams maybe you are working independently. Who knows but epic games is also the developer of the unreal engine which is an open source in advanced real time. Three d creation tool. And you'll hear a lot of Video games and special effects and even like some film stuff runs off of this unreal engine. So the unreal engine. Original purpose was as a state of the art game engine. But it's now used across industries so it's for cutting edge content interactive experiences in immersive virtual worlds Unreal engine is a real time engine. An editor that features photo realistic rendering dynamic physics and effects robust data translation and also lifelike animation. So it's kind of a big thing whenever somebody is using the unreal engine. You know you're going to get really could effects from it so that that's all out of epic games which which founded in the savage that engine so for me was not initially one of the games that was actually developed during that game jim but the concept of merging the construction game genre so games like sim city or minecraft with shooter games came together and it led to the foundation affording. So you probably know. It sim city is if you're our age but a refresher on minecraft so in minecraft which was first released in two thousand nine actually players. Explorer blackie procedurally generated three d world with infinite terrain and they may discover an extract raw materials craft tools and items and build structures or works so game modes in minecraft include a survival mode in which players must acquire resources to build the world and maintain health and creative mode where players have unlimited resources. So players can modify or maud game to create new gameplay mechanics items and assets and minecraft has a very distinctive like visual s. That like you can recognize if somebody showing you a screenshot of minecraft. So what epic did is they prepared to release fortnight as a paid early access title in july twenty seventeen and they had plans to release it as free to play some time in twenty nine thousand nine after gaining feedback from players to improve the game so originally titled fortnight and lear renamed to fortnight colon. Save the world. This original base module is a player versus environment cooperative game. So you have four players collaborating toward a common objective on various missions. The game is set after a fluke. Storm appears across earth causing about ninety eight percent of the population to disappear and the survivors are attacked by zombie. Like husks so the player takes the role of commanders of home. Shelters collecting resources saving survivors and defending equipment. That helps to either collect date on the storm or push back the storm. In from missions players are awarded a number of in game items including hero characters. Weapons trap schematics and survivors all of which can be leveled up through gained experience to improve their attributes. Also you're working together with people against this common enemy player versus environment cooperative game. In around the same time the epic released fortnight into early access pub g had become a worldwide phenomenon selling millions of copies and drawing strong interest in the battle royale genre so a battle royale game is an online multiplayer video game that blends the survival exploration and scavenging elements of a survival game with kind of the last man standing game. Play so the name. The genre is taken from two thousand japanese film titled battle royale which was based on a novel of the same name and presents a similar theme of a last man standing competition in a shrinking play zone. So you've heard people. My brother plays this one. You've heard people's mentioned before what the heck is pub- g it's an abbreviation for player unknowns battlegrounds so that's an online multiplayer battle royale game and in this game one hundred players parachute onto an island and scavenge for weapons and equipment to kill others while avoiding getting killed themselves So there's an available safe area. The games map which decreases in size over time and it ends directing surviving players into tighter areas to force encounters with other players. And the last player or team standing wins the round The game's concept and design was led by brendan green. Who's better known by his online handle player known and he'd previously created mods for other battle rail type games pudgy was the top selling premium game of two thousand seventeen selling thirty million copies worldwide and grossing. About nine hundred million dollars. I have can. I tell you never heard of this game in my whole life. You know you are. You aren't really doing a lot of player games. How it's absolutely right. You know what i. It's funny i feel like there's been a couple of questions and learn a league in maybe the last five seasons or so that like the answer will be some video game or something that we that when we see the answer.

"And this agency is so a bipartisan and members of the house members of the Senate on both sides of the aisle support what we do and we've had very good success in a bipartisan way achieving budgets that are going to put us in a path to go back to the moon. And this time we're going to stay let me quote from your American space for renaissance act. I'm quoting you want the United States to be among those who I arrive at a destination in space and open it for subsequent use and development by others. So as as China and others prepare to send humans to the moon is an imperative to you that Americans be the first to return there. Well, I think it's important. There's a difference between what I think China is doing and what we are doing China. Of course is interested in going to the surface of the moon. And so are. We our interest is going to the moon to stay we've already been to the moon. We landed on the moon in nineteen sixty nine we had six missions twelve people that walked on its surface. And so it's this is not a race. And you know, if people if people want to claim that it's a race, which I hear quite frequently. I'm okay with that. But but the reality is when they were landing on the far side of the moon. We were landing on the far side of Mars. And by the way, we were doing it for the eighth time in human history. And we're the only country that has ever done it weeks later, we were flying by ultimately in the kipper belt, which is, you know, past Pluto, we're talking about four billion miles from earth and taking beautiful images of ultimate ultimate in. And then of course, we entered orbit around an asteroid in deep space called Benue. And as everybody saw just a few days ago, we launched a SpaceX falcon falcon nine rocket with a crew dragon to the international space station where we have had people living. And working for now. Eighteen years in a row in space. So I would I would say we are in really good shape as a country. This president has put us in an even better position with his budget requests and bipartisan support in the congress. We're making great progress. When we go to the moon, though, the differences the president has said, we're going to be sustainable. In other words, we're not gonna leave flags and footprints, and then not go back for another fifty years this time when we go we're actually going to stay which means we need commercial partners. We need international partners. And we're getting great support from our international partners right now. And we also need reusability. We need rockets to be reusable. And of course, every piece of the architecture between here and the moon to be reasonable. Let's let's talk about the president's support for this space efforts of the twenty nine thousand nine NASA. Budget gave NASA was very generous gave Ness more than an ask for. But President Trump wanted to cut the w I telescope. The rope. Lander five missions that studied the earth, and that's as indication's programs congress gave you the money instead and more basically saying to the president know we disagree with your policy. So we can take each one of those. So here, here's the thing. Congress was very generous to us. They have given us a budget that funds. I think pretty much everything that you have suggested their budget was actually the president. Here's the thing. I come in is the NASA administrator and and the president's budget. Request takes NASA up a billion dollars. Well, no, his his budget. Request was actually about a billion on again. Yeah. It was it was bigger than it was a bigger than any budget in in my adult lifetime. And everybody was like, wow, he's serious. He wants to go back to the moon. And by the time that I was like thrilled. I'm like, okay. I'm going to go to the I'm going to go to NASA. And I'm going to advocate for a much bigger budget. By the time. I got here. Congress had already passed in a bipartisan way, a one point seven billion dollar increase. So it's it's interesting that I you know, I thought I was coming here to increase the budget..

"Seven thirty seven hundred last hour. We talked about Isaac Asimov back in nineteen Ninety-three actually nine hundred eighty three. He was actually asked to predict what the world would be like some thirty years later. And of course, that's twenty nine thousand nine the big year. We're now second day of twenty nine hundred. And so he wrote his thoughts down for an article in the Toronto Star newspaper. Talked a lot about computers talked about how computers and robots would be impossible do without by twenty nineteen. He believes that robotics would actually revolutionize the way we do things. But then he said, and he was talking about twenty nine thousand nine he foresaw that space race would be continuing. But it was a little off. Because for some reason we just we don't work as hard to achieve space goals. We have little, you know, little space goals to bring out some interesting theory Asimov saw is he basically foresaw by twenty nine thousand nine humans would have mining factories and solar power station on the moon. And he said that this would be the beginning of actually, you know, putting together for space settlement and that would be well underway by twenty nineteen. Now, we have the international space station, but nothing like what Asimov was talking about. And of course, we had a lot of lofty goals for space travel. George W Bush said that we would have, you know, at least men on the moon again by twenty eighteen didn't happen here. We are in twenty nineteen then it's big space night tonight. But not exactly what asthma talked about. I mean, you know, the White House talked about, you know, in two thousand seventeen about the moon again about space spores. And and these are the things that we're talking about now, I mean when you get space program last year. Space program last year. It seemed like everything about the space program was in low gear. I mean, a lot of delays with a lot of NASA staff, and of course, slips in the schedule. We were looking for new ways of getting the astronauts taxied out to the space station. And then of course, we reshuffled our plans for human spaceflight and landing on the moon. And all that. So, you know, and and like I said earlier, it was annoying that every time there was a big announcement from NASA you go to NASA site, you'd be watching something, you know, on video on the computer. And the first thing they say to you is we're not going to announce aliens were not going to announce life in space. And so all it was was like all talk and PowerPoint slides and a big yawn. Or so someone who is not a big yawn. Or is the guy we're having on the show tonight. And you know, people always say Richard Hoagland, an interesting individual. He really is he's the principal investigator and founder of enterprise mission. Here's the voice of the radio internet show the other side of midnight. He's received Angstrom metal the former science advisor to CBS news and Walter Cronkite, author bestselling books, the monuments of Mars in the dark mission the secret history of NASA, of course, with Carl Sagan HOGAN co created the pioneer plaque and predict your life on Europa in his groundbreaking paper. The Europe the per a proposal that was published three seven years before Nassar's announcement that they were going to send blue-fin to Europa to actually go under the water there and fine life. So Richard C Hoagland. Welcome back to ground zero. Good evening Klein, good grief. What a night. I know. It's only the second night of January January of two thousand nineteen. I know it's weird because you know, last night, I got off the air. And I thought what what do I want to talk about tomorrow? And I just realized I thought well, you know, new horizons got shot out, and it's going to be. Landing on older adults with truly depending on what side of the tracks. You're on. Didn't land the land didn't land, I know, but they were headed towards his four billion years away the full four billion miles away by correct is a four billion four point one billion four point one billion miles away in new rights takes light it takes light radio waves six hours to get there or come back from there. Right. And so they were saying that I guess it encountered ultimate throughly about twelve twelve thirty eastern. Well, thirty three twelve thirty three. Thirty three minutes. After the ball fell in new in Times Square. They announced that they came in contact with ultimate closest approach was just two thousand one hundred seventy five miles away from this nine point five kilometer wide option, which is thirty three kilometers long. You can't write this. You can't make this stuff up. All right here. I'm going to tell you the big news of the top of the show. So we are you please. Stuff happens the way it does. Go ahead. Maturity turns out to be is our gang predicted Sunday night on the show. I did all maturity and bullying beyond it should the art club nineteen point five. Ultimately is a nineteen point five kilometer wide, ancient spaceship. How do I know have you know, because we can see all the junk inside regular geometric rooms room after room after room geometry after geometry after geometry, this thing has been through hell and gone. And the only reason we're seeing anything that you can even recognize on these relatively low resolution images, we're going to get so much better ones tomorrow afternoon. What's another one of those is another one of those? I guess quote, asteroids rocks, or whatever they want to call them Astro. I know it's another one of those real look it doesn't look like anything natural. It's you look if you bring your grandmother to the screen when we get the images up we're trying to get through. Up on the other side of midnight. But we may wait because tomorrow's are going to be so much better. There's going to be gnashing of teeth and pulling hair NASA people like Emily, locked Awalleh jumping out of windows. I mean, I'm being metaphorical. Of course, the point is this is what they're gonna freak out about because it's unmistakable what we have here either to spherical ancient spacecraft docked together, a bigger one in a smaller one or more likely what I'm thinking to spherical modules of a joint face ship. One section being the engines and the other being the passenger and cargo compartment and the damn thing is over twenty miles long. This looks like a huge huge huge ancient generation ship. Yeah. That was thinking. Ancestors are great great, great, great great grandmothers of you and me and Isaac put together to get out of here when the getting really really bad right after the ancient war, correct. But it's interesting that they called it. Ultimately. Oh, it's not interesting at all. It's incredibly dead on. Okay. Do you think they came from? They came from Nazi faction in NASA, which still exists thinks it's going home to see. That's what I was the minute. I heard I mean, I remember my wife said, hey, Altima Cooley. What do you think, and I'm like going it sounds Nazi? And she says, well, that's where they're going with the new horizons. The Newsweek which kind of dismissed the idea that they were going. Come on new day. They know exactly what they're doing. Well, yeah. Because they don't tell us the truth stern. Looks into the camera with a great smile, and he's even better than Carl member calls Sagan. Looking at the camera and the lying through their teeth about what they're really looking at and finding and tonight it is over because all over the world people are gonna look at these images. They're going to take him into their computers are gonna use a modicum of imaging expertise, and they're going to rotate them around. That's critical rotate them around. You get that geometry which snaps is our eyes and brains are kind of geometrically oriented. So we only see certain things when it's right side up when you do that it pops this these are two huge denuded shells. The hulls have been voted away by micrometeorites sandblasting for God knows how many years and the interior geometric guts, a both spheres are exposed. Now. What's really cool? Clyde is. This thing is rotating with the openside decide what we can see inside. Exposed to the inner solar system and a new horizons camera as it approached if it had been flipped the other way, and we have a, you know, Holland sh- sheathing still in place, you say legitimately because there won't be much geometry at just an asteroid, but it's turned toward us. Right. Like someone turned it toward us de liberally as part of our ongoing history lesson. This is you really are. This is where you really came from. These are the folks who came and nest life up big time et cetera et cetera et cetera. These guys are the ones that Nazis worshiped. And the fact that this thing is in such relatively good condition tells me it may have been the pirates who arrived here and basically took over the planet on thirteen years ago and put us all in slavery. You know, Alex Jones, correct prison planet me. Well. And that's you know, that's something that I was trying to. Dig into a lot deeper with the story. All I love the preceding this because CLYDE did know folks that I was going to announce so we found a real I re- real real that anybody can see spaceship. Well. Going to get much better. Right. Get so much better. Right. Well, what gets me too is that we look at what duly means or through all means depending on your side of the tracks. You gone duly is actually an area that was anciently described as where the rocks are the borders, and you do not cross into those borders because there are where the dragon people or there's dragons are I can't help.

"Bloomberg interactive brokers studio, this is Bloomberg best. Goldman Sachs CEO, David Solomon, sees little risk of a recession in two thousand nineteen but believes there could be a recession in twenty twenty Sullivan spoke to Jonathan Farrow at the World Economic Forum in Davos, well, the global economy, I think is in okay shape. The economy is our our economists are talking about three and a half percent global growth in the US. We're talking about two hundred quarter to two point four percent growth in the US. If you look at just the economy itself. So I think we're doing just fine the growth trajectory, maybe has slowed a little bit. But the underlying economy is chugging along pretty well. There's a lot going on in the world at a high level, particularly around some big picture macro issues, the governments are dealing with. Whether it's the shutdown in the US, the trade negotiation between the US and China Brexit, you know, just to name a few. And I think markets are watching these. And it's a lot from Arkansas digest, and I think that's actually as we talk around Davos, the big thing that people are focused on how were these issues going to progress, and what impact will those issues have on the economic the underlying economic activity. We're seeing we've you've already made some waves in Davos, Switzerland, headline everyone's gonna run around with this David Solomona. Goldman Sachs says fifty percent chance of a recession in twenty twenty. What does that actually made a fifty percent chance of a recession in two thousand twenty? So let's put that in context are communists. I recently wrote a report where they were talking about the chance of recession in the US. And they said that they thought in twenty nine thousand nine hundred fifteen percent chance one five and at twenty twenty a fifty percent chance. It's hard to put in context. Exactly what that means. As you heard me say. I think the US economy is in good shape. I think it's chugging along. I think there's a possibility that is we get into the latter part of twenty twenty and we see continuing is the fed continues to manage monetary policy that we could see an economic slowdown. But you know, what it's just as possible that this one could continue and we could see economic growth continuing into twenty twenty one. So it's hard.

"The twenty nine thousand nine season right now to one. Yes onto three. No. Yeah. That's going to change the overtime rules in overtime roles changing or it's pretty much. They're saying, no. So you get the overtime rules won't change. It's not big enough difference with will penalties would be revealed on the twenty nine thousand nine season. The no is one to two in the is three to two. I disagree with that. I definitely think they're going to do something. There's no doubt about it. I'd be very very surprised. Fortunately, and this isn't necessarily a good thing. But it's the way life works sometimes things don't change until something really bad happens. Right. We don't preemptively change things knowing bad things can happen. We change it after the fact. No question. So we had something very bad in sports. Of course, it happened. And I think the NFL will react because I think there's enough coaches and enough people who want change Bill Belichick is always been a believer. Always the penalty should be revealed date. So I think the question's gonna be the semantics of it is at all penalties, which penalties are it. And then what you've brought up how many challenges and that whole system. So that'll be sorted out. But I do think that there will be some change to penalties being reviewed. But right now, it is not every panel like four starts will not be reviewable. Now. I'd say, you know, full of sides. Yeah. PI roughing the passer passer, maybe facemask penalty phase man kind of thing. And you think about how would have affected this past weekend, it would've affected big time. Yeah, sure. We mentioned earlier caller brought up the penalty that was called on Chris Jones for breathing on Tom Brady touching him on his arm gave him a gentle touch fifteen yards. It looked like he hit him in the head which he did not do doing look like it and to defend the officials. I don't really want to defend I was going to say it's tough to see. These guys these guys something else too that they should change the idea that the referee gets one pool reporter to ask him questions after a game is ridiculous. These guys should have to have their feet to the fire. Just like the coaches just like the players get front of the entire media can go. A group there and have to answer questions, and that's it and the best part about that for the league that will get a huge rating. People will watch UV doubt about it. Let me Laci these guys squirm. I mean that acid and Phuc that Vitovich gave. Come on. You didn't see it? So it didn't happen go on your phone up. It's a joke. Watch it then before you.

Eight seven seven three three seven sixty six sixty six Greg and may APAC, Greg. Our you. Thanks for taking the call guys. Greg up Sunday Sunday, the buckles with the reps that was coming for a long time guy. They they sue flags for the longest time for for no reason. And then you know, it was a big game. They said they were gonna let him play. And they went too far the other way, we're letting them play. I mean, it was that was it was ridiculous, Greg, and I and I wish wanted he's officials like Mike Pereira would come out and say, hey, look, we would officials were told not to throw the flag like they don't a regular season. Because they obviously we're told that let's be honest. Obviously made backfired. Any time. You can't get guys. Can you imagine? If the jets don't even say, we're waiting on the web screws. Well, at least the saints have only waited nine years only nine only nine that's nothing nine when they because clearly you guys are right. They definitely told you let them play. Let them play. Yeah. I was a fan of it. But you've got to use unagreed penalties in agreed penalty. Call of course, ticky tack hand fighting down the sideline bolts touching each other not on call that. But this is an old bringing did a great job of not calling that season Sunday with something agreed though the flag, Barry in Brooklyn, Barry, how are you? Hey, guys, Barry. All right. Two quick things. Number one under no circumstances. When it comes to. The overtime rules every team should touch the ball. At least once now.

Can you imagine Alice guy price? I would prefer a bunch of mediocre players. I say a bunch of b plus players as opposed to an a plus superstar, Barry, Barry, I would love to see the Mets shock us all and signed hours. Take dies Dallas guy. He's not going to be in the budget. If you will. Won't be in the budget. But yeah, signing Dallas kaikal and say, and I'll tell you why. It's smart to sign Dallas kaikal, depending on the price in the years. Zack Wheeler is probably. Yeah. Probably that. Now fair looks that way. So you not only are you. Michigan. The better Joe. Cooking. And that's the one good thing about these guys on a walkie. I feel about that. Yeah. Get a monster year at at a guy before we go. So you get Kyko. Let's say signed to a three diem payment ton of money three years sixty million dollars a lot of money twenty million dollars a year for Dallas Kyko for one year because I'd rather pay for the short term. That's my philosophy on it. Maybe it costs. It's probably he's gonna want more years. I'm sure you get one year with the super rotation where your fifth starter, Stephen mats, and your daughter is either Wheeler or kaikal, not bad. Then wheelers gone and losing Wheeler makes it easier because you've got kaikal there for two more years with Noah Syndergaard. And hopefully Jacob degrom locked up long term. I don't think the metric going to do that. I think the Mets are gonna look at that fifth starter as Jason Vargas, Corey Oswald, Hector Santiago, and maybe they'll add another guy of that ilk into the mix. But sure, it'd be great. If I see that play again where the interception that was called back because. Offside? They stopped showing that this would you really not want the Ford now. No, I take them, of course. But I mean, you know, that that does bother me if I'm Greg Greg Williams, I would say the let me let me make sure do we make sure you know, where the line of scrimmage is maybe with a better defensive coordinator. Amy, maybe Greg and Tom's river, Greg. Our you a great guy. Thanks, real quick. First of all you ever. See a pass interference called in the end zone on a hill. Mary. Yeah. Right. Yeah. Different kind of play. But still I know anyway, as far as the overtime Evan. I gotta disagree with ya. A terribly disagree with you as far as extending the game. Imagine if a team ties the game with a minute left. The other team gets the ball and marching down the field just a setup safer a field goal. You're going eliminate all the drama all the sense of urgency. They're just gonna take their time and waste of the. Now, let me ask you this. You're right about taking away drama. I'm not creating drama, but don't you think that is the fairest way to determine it? You're just extending the game. You're not having a coin toss involved to see who gets the ball. I you're just saying, hey, we're going to put a few more minutes on the clock until we have a winner. So from fairness standpoint, what's wrong with it? I just don't I just don't like the fact that the team with the ball is just gonna milk the clock to get into the second session. I think you're gonna like I said sometimes the best part of the game. Obviously is that last minute or two closer the only time team would strategize and say, I don't care about the clock is if the game was tied obviously right behind you still have to you got to extend the game. So other than that. Like, hey, it's a tie game. I don't have to rush. You're right. That is an aspect that would change a team doesn't have to get into the urgency. I'm just I have no problem with the overtime rule. I'm simply saying if we're looking for the fairest thing because that's the biggest complaint about current overtime. Not fair. It's not fair is to get the ball. Is that not the fairest way? It is the fairest. I got no issue with the overtime rule right now. I really don't. I don't either. I'm just barely. I mean, it's better to just a straight. Sudden death used to be better. It's better than sudden-death that it's better than college. Oh god. Let's not football college. And the college Rover times is absurd. I mean, I don't know who came up with that idea. It's absurd. I wonder if we are in the minority on that. Maybe the college football fans, really love it. It's exciting. And there's a lot of offense. Mallet, you know, Pat and Palam, Pat, our you I be going in the overtime. I heard Christmas show you liked it. I think it's pretty good. Good. Okay. Coin toss, of course, the winner of the coin till gets the option of getting the ball or kicking off to the other teams. Here's the thing. The team gets the ball has school. They don't score game. All come on. That's that's a whole key. Okay. If they don't score get the name. Win the game was it. But it's the tie notice the other team wins. But I'm saying, but it's like a tie game. Nova's your team to win the other. It's hokey. It's ridiculous. I think it's a terrible. That's a good idea. Okay. They win. They get the ball. Again. They don't score. You win the game. What it's horrible. But it's really a tie game. Am I missing something? Just a bad idea. Not a good idea. Mark fine. Saint coming up at twelve thirty. We'll come back with more your calls going on right now security dodge at Amityville. Plus, I got to give you a crazy stat about Marianna Rivera. There's so many of them, but I got one more at you.

"In twenty nine thousand nine it's time to stand up for the right to privacy, yours mine all of ours. Consumers shouldn't have to tolerate another year of companies irresponsibly amassing huge user profiles data breaches out of control and the vanishing ability to control our own digital lives. This problem is solvable. It isn't too big too challenging or too late innovation breakthrough ideas and great features can go hand in hand with user privacy. And they must realize technology's potential depends on it. That's how apple CEO, Tim, cook begins his essay on privacy. Just right now published in time magazine, a California judge has ruled that American cops can't force people to unlock a mobile phone with their face or finger. The ruling goes further to protect people's private lives from government searches than any before and is being hailed as a potentially landmark decision. That's how Thomas Brewster begins his. Verage in an article just days ago in Forbes, the need for both regulation and rights. It's exactly the conversation. I wanted to help kick-start in the right to remain private video. I posted last weekend in the age of ubiquitous data harvesting. It's one of the most important conversations for all of us here on this channel and out in the world. I didn't intend to follow that video up so closely with another, but I don't every time get what I want. Welcome back to the show. Thanks again for joining me. Irony Ritchie, and this is vector. The first thing I covered in the previous video was how companies had utterly failed to regulate themselves over the last few years the last year, especially we've had one incident of data abuse after another one data-breach after another. We've had our personal private information bought and sold and leaked for politics and money and power and marketing, so the time has come to consider government regulation with fines and jail time considerable enough that. Comes in the company's best interests not to fail. Not to avoid not to abdicate not to procrastinate not to ship without privacy or to try to bolted on later, but to build products with privacy from the start last year. Tim cook addressed this in his keynote at the fortieth international conference of data protection and privacy. Commissioners this year, he's doing it. In time magazine meaningful comprehensive federal privacy legislation should not only aim to put consumers in control of their data. It should also shine a light on actress trafficking in your data behind the scenes, some state laws are looking to accomplish just that. But right now, there is no federal standard protecting Americans from these practices. That's why we believe the Federal Trade Commission should establish a data broker clearinghouse requiring all data brokers to register enabling consumers to track the transactions that have bundled and sold their data from place to place and giving users the power to the lead there. To on demand freely easily and online once and for all they're a couple of factors when it comes to paying with data that I think are critical to recapitulate here. I everyone has different amounts of time and money, but we're all rich when it comes to data, even though it's invaluable to the companies that spend billions of dollars to provide us with products designed to harvest it. We treat it as though it has no value to us second we see clock's ticking away and money leaving our wallets. And our counts. We don't see our personal messages and photos being sucked up into the cloud or the big internet companies hiding behind our beds or falling us from behind the bushes. So the cost doesn't even really register. Now, I'm not saying computer should have to animate are private photos going up and into the cloud or have a little ninja icon or something peeping at us as we travel around. But to cooks point one of the biggest challenges in protecting privacy. Is that many of the violations are invisible, we need to drop a can of paint on it one way or. Other the second thing I covered in the previous video was how we also needed protection from the government both when it comes to evolving existing rights like the one against self-incrimination. And when it comes to extralegal activities like warrantless surveillance or demands for backdoor access to operating systems that brings us to the ruling of magistrate judge Candace west more the order came from the US district court for the northern district of California in the denial of a search warrant for an unspecified property in Oakland. The warrant was filed as part of an investigation into a Facebook extortion crime in which a victim was asked to pay up or have an embarrassing video of them publicly released the cops had some suspects in mind and wanted to raid their property in doing so the feds also wanted to open up any phone on the premises via facial recognition of fingerprint or an iris previously. Some courts had ruled that passcodes couldn't be compelled because they were commensurate with testimony, which is protected, but that biometrics were physical. And so didn't enjoy the same protection. Why should a pass? Code fingerprint and facial scan between the differently if they all -ccomplish the same thing, that's just what west more focused on in her ruling declaring that technology is outpacing the law. The judge wrote that fingerprints and face scans were not the same as physical evidence. When considered a context where those body features would be used to unlock a phone if a person cannot be compelled to provide a pass code because it is a testimonial communication a person cannot be compelled to provide once finger thumb iris face or other by metric feature to unlock that same device. The judge wrote how much this ways on future court rulings? We'll have to wait and see, but it's a precedent in the right direction. And yeah, as always I'm just as concerned with law enforcement having access to the evidence, they need to solve the cases we need them to solve in. This specific ace the judge that other means were available including getting the data from Facebook itself. But all of this is going to have to be carefully balanced. So that what's in our minds. Our memories our thoughts remains sacrosanct even as. The digital world extends eventually integrates with them. That's why I'm going to keep talking about this. And why so very much encourage you to do the same.

"Now entering the conflict person. Never never gone. You are listening to the flying car show here on K G O eight ten and it is the first weekend of two thousand and nineteen. It's a little bit rainy out there. It's blustery. Interesting thing, you know, when you talk about these mornings that we come into San Francisco on Saturday morning UC isn't very crowded, but it seemed like the old old west today. They were tumbleweeds. No, wait, the as people have apartments here in the city. They have rather short or tabletop Christmas trees that have been put a curbside, and there's a blustery wind blowing. So is I'm coming down Lombard. There are little Christmas. Trees rolling down the streets. I know it. Nearby. Expect him to pop out every now, and then this Charlie Vogel, high miam- your host, and I'm joined by Alex stack an auto enthusiasts within the -pinion on occasion. And Stacy ran decker who is a mobility experiential. Who's that an opinion all the time? And we're talking about what we're looking for in two thousand nineteen Stacey anything that is interesting on the horizon. Oh, well, is it our hopes and dreams or is it what we think is actually happening or whatever you have a dream. Go on. Sorry to call this week. Two thousand nineteen if you want to get a hold of any of us. There's plenty of ways to do it socially. You can tweet us at flying car show. We have a website, we have emails we have Facebooks all of those things. Let us know. And Stacey view let us know. Right now. What are you thinking about two thousand nine hundred am so I- ardently want more Eady's, and I want awesome Eady's. I, you know, the the bolt is serviceable and fine. The I three is is really w w I three yes. The leaf is turned over a new one nice touch in that tesla. Strong. The tests three is out. Now, a more affordable version is still isn't necessarily you. Don't you don't feel like you're missing anything compared to compared if you an S versus a three. It's like, okay. Yeah. You know, there's a difference. But a three versus almost any other vehicle on the road. It just as it. It's an experience. I I really enjoy it. How do you like your mustard groupon? Hey Frenchie over there on your. Sometimes you have a French mustard color muscle car. Yeah. Exactly. There are a lot of cars as you mentioned. Stacey electric cars that are rolling out. I mean Audi's a got one on the we've seen the Jaguar. I mean, we'll see a lot more happening now that the two thousand nine we talked about that. And of course, we'll see a bunch in two weeks ahead both at CBS and then at the North American International auto show. So there's a website clean Technica. That has a article that an article that has the headline accused, quote, unquote, tesla killers cleared of all charges. So I think that there is a tesla killer there we haven't figured out which one that's going to be the slate of premium offerings coming in to twenty twenty twenty nine thousand nine here is going to be giving them and to your point Stacy's. Tesla created a new vehicle, and then it was electric in. It's even being an app, it's just a new segment, even right? So around that so many things have have grown in such. So now, we're talking about these established car manufacturers, of course, rolling out their electric version. Of a vehicle and General Motors. Did it for so many years? Toyota's done it with hybrids, and they have multi generations now the Prius, but even the experimentation that tweeden Honda and others are doing with the fuel cell, which is a version of electric. So it'd be interesting to the extent that Alex article says, you know, what is the tesla killer? So what is going to be out that there's both affordable and capable and really cool. And a lot of that has to do with the cost of originally in. And how far it goes? And then what is the whole presentation? I think probably what cripples the standard manufacturer is that they're their roadmap is to take an existing product that they have in electrify it. And that's not going to be the test. It's got to be brand new from scratch. Or things of that nature. I agree. I agree. It's like you've got to do something groundbreaking. If you're just, and it's also a lost opportunity to take the thing that you've been doing and just sort of like, oh, we put the thing in there. Like is such a it. It's so lame compared to take this opportunity to make something really amazing and captivating and that draws people in and I'll get somewhat scientific because they can't get fully scientific. I'm not I'm not qualified for that. But we're basically have to take stored energy and turn it into motion. And we store the energy in the form of gasoline or diesel or we saw it in the form of a battery, and there's pluses and minuses in terms of how much that costs initially to purchase that battery how much energy can be stored in it. And then how much it weighs how much space it takes up all of those things. And that's the technology that we've been battling with all these years. And I mean when you really start doing the calculations we've we've been quoted not leaving. We've heard people quote that the the one of the key metrics, we have to reach is that for every kilowatt hour, your battery pack has you get five miles from it. And the existing math was always three miles per kilowatt hour, so when you saw a tesla. In front of you and ahead of sixty on the on the rear gate that badge than it would have a range of approximately one hundred eighty miles the model three now is is kind of calculating out where it's about four miles per kilowatt hour, so that you know, it seems small but those steps once it gets into the five six realm. That's where it's really going to be the defacto choice when you were out shopping. Well, the interesting thing too is we have a car that gets about five hundred miles. My wife has a car about five hundred miles on a tank, and and I really appreciate the fact that you don't have to go into to refuel that are very often. I mean, that's an amazing amount in talking to. My sister has a tesla has for years, and she's looking at me like I haven't been into a gas station and three or four years. I don't even know how much it costs for fuel or I don't really care. I mean, obviously, he's aware. But it's the kind of thing where it it's a different habit. It's a different thing about it. But now, of course, in range in a big distance, you know, obviously, internal combustion vehicles still does pretty well. But. But the Tesla's now in the multi hundreds all of a sudden, it becomes a very usable vehicle for a lot of people in my opinion, still needs to come down in price, and we'll continue to see that as more vehicles roll out. And then we'll have some great conversations, I know with infrastructure and the ability of re plenty Shing these batteries recharging in a public space and to your point of coming down in price. I mean, technically when that subsidy got half for tesla it went up in price. But I want to acknowledge their decision to literally offset that by lowering the price of their cars. So that's not something, you know, the big GM et cetera et cetera. Tesla. I mean when you're when you're playing with somebody else's money. You you can give it away more, right? Well, you know what though? But I think it's it is a wise investment. It's seeing the long and the human race. Nearly agreed one hundred percent well, and again that was original source for this subsidy or the ability or the incentive to get people to behind the electric cars sold rather small percentage. I made mention of how many cars were sold in a year. Fourteen to sixteen million range and percentage of electric cars is really rather small. We've got two hundred and fifty million vehicles on the road right now, so transitioning to an all electric fleet is you know, decades and decades away at that was number. So that's why I see some changes grown. And when I walked those halls at the L A auto show. It was I I was disgusted and practically in tears because when I see all that metal and all of those engines underneath and I think that they are not moving an inch essentially in towards the electric, all electric, fully electric. Well, it's it's painful, they'll let me and and I will say that's where it's interesting for me to go to some of the local auto shows and things like that show like. L A, and we'll see what happens at North American. You know, some of the manufacturers are showing the relatively low volume relatively high horsepower performance kind of vehicles. They only get a couple moments on the stage or a small piece of real estate in the hall, and they want to show something that's going garnered them more attention than than actual sales sometime. So I appreciate what you're saying about because I know you and I were near the Mercedes booth, and you were very frustrated by the fact that cars are beautiful they're gorgeous. And they're killing us, you're killing the planet. I mean, it's so it's so hard to sit there and feel that workmanship and see that design and covet it. I mean, I like didn't want to get out of that seat. But when you lift the hood, and you see that. And when you know, what comes out of the exhaust pipe. It's it's like why they're so smart. Why can't you put electric in it? Okay. As I mentioned has a little bit of passionate about that. We've got a couple of minutes before the break, Alex. Whereas I love, you know, twelve cylinders, you know. What are you looking forward to in the weeks ahead, keep your eyes peeled while you're on the highways? I finally saw my first California temporary paper licence play. And it was actually the day before New Year's Eve, so January one that lodgings where you can't drive across the bridge for free for six months when you buy a new car. So I actually saw one on a truck. And I was like this is interesting January is going to be here. And where are these plates? What about here in the bay area? Two things happen. First of all the tolls. Went up on a number of the bridges. Wow..

"Shot at one thousand dollars four times. Four K A M A L, A Cumulus station. Down poll market bounces. I'm Barton Eckerd. There was no meeting of minds during Friday's session between President Trump and congressional leaders in effort to end a partial government shutdown. Trump is sticking to his five point six billion dollar demand for border wall. Funding democratic Senator Ben Cardin, says the shutdown is taking their toll clearly shutdown is ridiculous. It hurts. People people are trying to figure out how they're gonna pay their mortgages, how to pay their bills people who need government services aren't getting them. People want to buy a home can't get that approval of their mortgage payments, and the list goes on and on and on Trump says he would prefer coming to terms on wall funding with congress, but he could go another route, and we can call a national emergency because of the security of our country. Absolutely. Now, we can do it. I haven't done it. I may do it. I may do it. But we could call a national emergency and build it very quickly. And it's another way of doing it. Reassuring remarks from the Federal Reserve chairman coupled with an upbeat jobs report so stocks bounced back on Friday as correspondent Steve Kastenbaum explained. It was quite the remarkable turnaround with the Dow Jones industrial average gaining seven hundred forty seven points or three point two nine percent investors. I started driving prices up after the Labor Department released a better than expected jobs report. Then the Federal Reserve chairman gave Wall Street reason to believe that the fed would hold off on additional interest rate hikes when he said they're watching markets, and they will be patient with policy.

"Right. We're gonna turn now to North Korea. Where Kim Jong UN North Korea's leader has given his annual New Year's address. And in this televised speech says he remains committed to complete denuclearisation. But only if the US keeps its promises Kim Jong also said he'd be willing to meet with President Trump again anytime NPR's, Anthony Kuhn joins us now from Seoul, Anthony, happy twenty nineteen happy twenty nine thousand nine Rachel. So just from that snapshot I gave it doesn't seem like Kim Jong on his paving the way for a breakthrough on the nuclear issue. Does it no not at all is to speech was pretty much what analysts expected, especially those analysts who predicted this stalemate on the nuclear issue is gonna drag on well into the new year. What Kim said is that, you know, he's serious about improving relations with the US and denuclearizing North Korea has been pointing out for a while that since the Trump Kim summit in June. They have made gestures such as dismantling nuclear and missile test sites. And so now it's up to the US to reciprocate by easing sanctions or providing some sort of security guarantee, and the reason Orioles let's hear some tape from Kim speech here. You mean? Janko US fails to keep the promises it made before the world. He says if it misjudges the patience of our people and continues to us sanctions and pressure against our Republic, then we'll have no choice except to seek a new path to secure the sovereignty and interests of our country. Now, he didn't say what exactly that new pass is Rachel, but it sounds a lot like the old path of hostility and confrontation with the US except now with the more lethal nuclear arsenal. And also, we might note that the setting for this the scene for this speech was different. He was sitting in a wood-paneled bookshelf lined office, which was apparently intended to look more like the president's office than a dictator is bunker. Does he have a wood panel bookshelf lined office? Or is that a stage set we unclear? So what's he holding out for? Well, you remember the Trump can summit in June people saw right, then that was the Vegas deals and that the US and North Korea have completely different understandings of Duke denuclearization, and they have emphasized this time. And again that when they say denuclearization. That includes getting rid of the us nuclear umbrella that protects South Korea and Japan and today, Kim added in his speech, no new strategic weapons on the Korean peninsula and an end to US-South Korean joint military exercises. So it seems that North Korea is holding out for another summit where they're going to try to squeeze more concessions out of President Trump.
