Will Collagen Break Your Fast?
"We have a question from daniele in the subject is collagen slash vitamins. She says when breaking a nineteen to twenty hour fast. Can i start with my collagen supplement which is powder and water and gummy vitamins. Please don't judge a grown woman taking gummy vitamins. Laugh emoji no judging so great question. Daniela the very short and simple answers. Yes the longer answer is. It's a good thing to clarify. I think collagen is something people especially people. That are new to fasting. Think that it might be something that they can take while fasting especially because it's often quote prescribed to take the way she's taking it like in water. Collagen is definitely. Something is not fasting friendly. It's a protein amino acid. It's going to definitely definitely break your fast. Yep people like to start at coffee. i don't know why Started that diddy I think way back in the day. 'cause i remember reading him writing about it. He was saying for women in particular. It was a good thing. Well i don't know it's like wasser by wanting to put this in their coffee. The good thing about college in those. It's very nourishing to your gut. So it's actually a really wonderful time to take it right when you're breaking your fast. Like danielle is and then same to take the vitamin. I'm not a huge fan of multivitamins. In general i think it's better to target specific nutrients there's so much complexities to vitamins. That it's hard to find a vitamin that you know is actually doing what you wanted to be
Obamacare would get a big (and quiet) overhaul in the Covid relief bill
"The covid nineteen relief bill. That passed the house on saturday and is now making its way through. The senate includes an expansion of the affordable care act health care legislation. It would be the first significant expansion of the aca also known as obamacare since it passed in two thousand ten white house correspondent marine groppy reports. This would primarily helped people in two ways. One is for the first time people who are making more than four times. The federal poverty level will become eligible for help paying their premiums so for example if a sixty four year old woman is making fifty thousand dollars. Right now she's not eligible for help but under the law for the next two years she could get subsidies that could make her premium dropped from about thirteen thousand dollars a year to just about five thousand dollars a year. Secondly people who make one hundred and fifty percent of the federal poverty line could get additional subsidy help they already qualify now but the extra help would allow them to buy plans without premiums that have much lower deductibles than what they can afford right. Now there's also incentives in the bill to For the twelve states that have not expanded medicaid under the aca to give them extra money in hopes that they will do so to cover people below poverty in their states who don't currently qualify for medicaid. These changes that are in. The bill are expected to stay in the question for whether they become law is whether the entire bill passes. It's not expect to get much. If any republican support. The democrats need to stay united in order to pass the legislation and get it to president biden's desk and these are provisions that he has promised he has supported and once in there and he's expected to sign the bill into law go relief plan which also includes fourteen hundred dollar checks too many americans and more could enter. Its final stretch on wednesday. Senators may begin. Twenty hours of debate on the measure. That's expected to come to a vote later in the week. Majority leader senator chuck schumer said tuesday. That democrats have sorted through disagreements and now have their eyes set on the deals. Final details senate. Democrats are committed to passing the american rescue plan to crush the virus. Recover our economy and deliver help to americans who need it the most. We're on track to send the american rescue plan to the president's desk before the expiration of the enhanced unemployment benefit which occurs on march fourteenth. I expect a hardy debate. I expect some late nights on the floor. The bill could become law as soon as next week
What the pandemic has revealed about the real value of college
"We've got a moment. We're in crisis. Can we do better. Ron lieber is asking that very question in his new book. The price you pay for college is the author of the new york times personal finance column your money ron for years and years and years. We weren't thinking about the price of college the value of college. Is it worth it. Well i think you have to start by asking yourself what college is right. what is college for. I wasn't sure what the answer to. That question was so i asked you know scores of families and i heard the same things over and over again colleges for getting an education for having your mind grown in your mind blown. It is for kinship. It is for finding the people who will carry you through life. It is for getting a credential whether it's the gold plated one that will open doors or just the degree that will allow you to grasp hold of the middle class and hopefully stay there and so in order to answer. The question of whether college is worth it. You need to find it for your individual family that we as a nation can dictate for any given individual but then how did we get to this place right. My dad worked in the summer and put himself through school and had a tiny bit of debt. After how did college get this expensive. There are so many more things pulling on our household incomes than there used to be. We are entirely responsible in most instances for our own retirement. We're paying more and more out of our own pockets for healthcare. Many people are paying off their own student. Loan debt well into their forties or fifties right so people don't have the same kind of disposable income as they might have earlier states have reduced their subsidies towards higher education which means the price of the state schools has gone up and the private institutions. They've gotten more and more expensive so the middle class. There is being squeezed. This whole idea of i want to go to a liberal arts college and better myself and in the world is will be. My voice. teacher is kind of an antiquated thought. Sure i'd like to enrich myself but not if it's going to put me in hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of debt. I remember when i was a senior in college. I went to lehigh and lee. Could absolutely help you on the career services front. If you wanted to go work in an accounting firm or be an engineer i wanted to work in investment banking so i drove to new york city with my mother and i stuck into the career services office at columbia university and i borrowed these giant binders. That had every piece of information that you needed for every bank every financial institution so you could apply for the summer internships. Now i went to the photocopy machine to start and you needed to have a school. I d to use the photocopier. I got caught. And i got kicked out the reason i bring this up. We send these kids to college but the best jobs are directly linked to only a few schools. So do we need to start looking at. Here's a college. What is the job. My child is going to get on the other side because otherwise they will be sitting here in hundreds of thousands of dollars with a debt. Yes to all of that first of all. That is the most bad ass career services story that i have ever heard your description of this as quote unquote best jobs right. I mean it is true that the best jobs in investment banking very narrow feel from certain institutions. Right unless you beat down the door but are those. The best jobs in america are the best jobs for anyone. Goldman sachs's is hiring. All these people in salt lake city now do not come from columbia and harvard and stanford mit. So then we have to ask ourselves well. These are iconic jobs in in certain social classes but are they really the best jobs out there for any given twenty two year old. I don't think so. Before the pandemic we knew there was a skills gap in the united states. We were at full employment yet. We had millions of americans who are not making enough money to support themselves. We had people who had jobs but good enough jobs. But you hear people making that argument saying you cannot afford to support yourself and your family working in a fast food restaurant but that job was never intended for someone who has a family to support. Is there an opportunity to actually create a real jobs program. A skills retraining program so it's not just about raising minimum wage. It's about retraining. People to qualify themselves for better higher paying jobs yes and that infrastructure already exists we can use the community college infrastructure to provide that skills training but we also have a shortage of qualified instructors to teach some of these skills. Why because the skills are so in demand that the people who would be doing the instructing are making five times as much money being actual practitioners. If you're a master plumber. You're not going to spend twenty hours a week teaching at a community college even though it would be a service to the community if you are a welder with twenty five years of experience right same thing is true. So how are we going to create the budget that allows for more people to be pushed through rigorous training programs. And so we need to do more I think from a state perspective and from a federal perspective not just provides the money but also to ensure equity and access to these programs

How To Steal Back Your Identity
"The greatest betrayal of abbey. Ellen's life began with a newspaper assignment. I was reading a story about detox diets. And i need to quote an expert and someone suggested this guy. Abby is a journalist and the author of duped a book about this fateful interview and the bizarre life altering aftermath and so i quoted him Actually it was in the new york times called a fact check. I said are you still in florida and he said no. I'm in the navy now i rejoined. I'm opening up a hospital for kids with cancer in iraq and afghanistan. And i said that's awesome. I want to write about that. Keep me posted and so he sort of did so. We'd never met in person until all why a later that when he finally was coming to new york city where i was living because he had to give a big talk at the un clearly and so he came to do is talk of the un and we went to dinner six months later abbey and this man who she calls the commander were engaged. They moved in together in dc. Well he worked at the pentagon. Abby went to grad school for international relations. But the more time she spent with the commander the more abby sense to something just wasn't quite right. What i made you suspicious. Me told me he had met his first. The first ex wife who's really his second ex wife but his first when he rescued her when she was held hostage in iran. And i said the age didn't add up. I said when we in iran he said oh it was a secret mission. You wouldn't have heard about it really well. And then i thought okay the someone has to do these jobs like better better. Decoy this nerdy asthmatic. Doctor you know like like why not and then. He told me that he worked at guantanamo as the medical director which he did that was part of the problem is that he kind of mixed fiction and fact together and one of his patients was a very wanted terrorist named osama bin laden. And i said that is impossible. And he said the president doesn't know and then i got like all you know. Carrie mathison a homeland. Like god. who's the jihadist. And who's not and who knows what it was. I was gasoline making myself crazy. Suddenly abby found herself using her reporting skills to investigate her own fiance she talked to professors about whether the commanders impressive stories could even be possible. Never like yeah. That's the possible. The final straw was when we went out to dinner with my parents. And we had brussel sprouts and he raved about the brussels sprouts and when we got out he said that meal was awful and i said why did you lie. And he said. I wanted to make them feel better. And that's when. I said you know what i'm out. There's no need to lie about something like okay. So so he was treating been logging and the president to know about it but it was. The brussels sprouts praised that gave him away in the end. I knew they weren't good but more than that. He admitted that he had lied. He said i wanted to make them feel good. And i thought you lie so beautifully which has flowed out of him. If you could lie about that you could lie about anything when you finally did confront him. How did he react to that. Well i left him. I said i'm out. So i never talk to him again. And i didn't find out until a year and a half later that he in fact had been stealing identities and when he was a drug addict. And i got a call from ncis and they said you know there's a doctor who's been writing prescriptions for vicodin and he's been using a bunch of people's names and identities and you're one of the people. Do you know this guy. Do you ever prescription. And i said well. No 'cause i prefer valium and so of course but anyway so he went to jail to make a statement against him. I just started researching all this stuff about this guy. Heaven the guy you're about to marry steal your identity is obviously different than casey's going through but it actually has a lot more in common with her situation than you might think abbas wrestled with the kind of psychological trauma that really defines any breach of trust. And she understands the obsession. That's now leading. Casey to work twenty hour weekends on her case. So you're in this kind of like luminol space of you may be probably sort of know them. But you don't know and you're not sure if you're ever gonna find out right. Can you kind of describe where you are with all this well. I kind of actually have this idea that i might want to sort of help other victims by maybe writing a book about the experience. I guess what i'm trying to do. Is you know sort of gather information about how other people handled it and how they move forward with their lives. But i don't necessarily want focus too much on our case. Because i feel like it's not mentally healthy evian. You've seen more people get duped and cope with getting duped than the next by by a long shot. So i'm curious to hear sort of your take on. What's the most interesting thing to me is. When i was reading the book was a how many people i spoke to. Who had been duped and most people didn't wanna talk about it or use their real name because everybody felt completely humiliated. So when you talk about writing a book to help people and what i tried to do anyway is at least make people feel less stupid. And if you're gonna feel stupid that's okay because everybody's stupid then
The Psychology of Gaming with Jane McGonigal
"And super better and what is it about video. Alex people have an aversion to video games. But there's so many useful tools and insights and lessons that we can draw from them. People who don't play games have two games that you'd out. I mean there are two point three billion people on the planet now who regularly play video games like one in three people have actively chosen to make games a part of our lives which is really exciting moments now. You don't even know. I i would. I bet she might be. I mean she might be doing something on her phone like a little cat collecting game or something. I talked to so many people who swear they'd never played a video game and they are on level twelve hundred of candy crush saga all the time. So what is it about games. Look i mean my god. We could have like a twelve hour. Podcast series at least on this but The the most important thing is this. This is my life researching. The potential benefits of games played by the right person at the right time for the right reason and the number one thing we know any game that you love i don't care if it's the legends. It's fortnight is candy crush whatever. Whatever you feel drawn to We know that there is a transferrable benefit. Which is you get better at learning new things at dealing with systems that are frustrating and having to adapt. you know. you're learning new rules. You're winning new interfaces. It's designed to frustrate you and you have to adapt and get better and build confidence in your ability to get better and every game does this. And it's it's something that we shouldn't trivialize. We shouldn't pretend that that games are just escapist or just a pastime that they actually build you know this kind of growth mindset. They build this resilient way of dealing with challenges and they especially for young people for kids who grow up learning game after game five year old twin daughters who just got their first tablet this year and they've already taught themselves to play over a hundred different games on this tablet and every day they come show me like mom. Look at this game. I learned. Watch me play this game and just the confidence that you can build in. I can learn anything. I can teach myself. I can get better. I can develop new skills. Even if i'm terrible at this the first time i tried it That's something your whole life until you're like a hundred years old desperately trying to keep that neural plasticity going. How do i keep my. You know. Brain healthy and active. Where's the gray matter gonna grow. You can grow it by learning something new. That's hard for you so from five years old to one hundred years old any game that's designed to be challenging is going to give you that benefit. So how should parents think about that with kids. Because there's a lot of questions around screen time. And whether i should let my kids play certain games or not. How do you think about that okay. So the number one thing is you have to be in conversation with your kids around what they're playing and they're three really powerful questions that i ask my kids and anybody. I'm trying to get to know better. Understand the relationship to games and understand their personal strike so you ask them about whatever. The favorite game is right now. What does it take to be good at this game. What skills does it require. What kind of personality or temperament require you ask them. What have you gotten better at since you started playing this game and you ask. What's the hardest thing you've accomplished in this game and asked them to tell you about how they did it you know. What did you have to do in order to meet that challenge because it turns out that people who can talk about what they've gotten better at. What real skills. Whether it's you know being able to manage my breathing under pressure my heart rate under pressure there competitive e sports player or if it's creativity. Maybe i don't give up when things are hard. It's communication stressful situations of my teammates. It's i can get. I know where to look. Whenever i i don't know what to do. I really good information. Finder whatever it is people who can talk about that. They tend to bring those skills to their work to their learning to their relationships to their hobbies And all you have to do to get somebody to transfer the benefits of games to real life is just have that conversation and you can do it with yourself to like just have a little game journal every time you play new game. You're like what am i getting. Better epic playing this game. It's the hardest thing that i have achieved by one. Been playing this game.

Best Productivity and Technology Stories 2020
"I'm recieving smith immigrants and we're your hosts for anything but idle this is episode thirty five And we are going to be covering productivity and technology news in review twenty twenty hour recording on december twenty first twenty twenty and each week we cover the productivity news headlines of the week and to do that we usually bring on some panelists and today we have one panelist to help us talk about all things in the personal productivity in technology space So today we're bringing j miller onto the show. Jay is a developer advocate at elastic in san diego. California a multi potential potential light. I'm hoping i'm getting that right. Jay enjoys finding unique ways to merge his fascination with productivity automation and development to creek tools and content to serve the tech community. Welcome to anything but idle j. Glad to be here. Glad to have you got to have you wonderful and so with that. This week's theme. What i thought we would do stone. I thought we would do is to walk us. Through the the stories of the year as many can kind of figure out twenty twenty was a little bit unusual. It was a it was a challenging year for a lot of us and it was unusual in many regards but we've had a lot of productivity and technology news. That's happened a lot of things of have occurred this year and so augusta you wanna kick us off with. What you believe is kind of the biggest story this year. The virtual shows you know as as a person who is star his life doing sales deny remember the big shows and and i remember the apple event and events in big deals when the beginning of twenty twentieth star. And we got covid on all this. What is going to happen with this shows and we saw apple with google sampson with microsoft going into this virtual events from good to better because really there was just there was but but we're going to remember only the good ones that got better There were some that. Were not that way what happened but but even we were able to experience. How apple did the first one you know. Then it gets better and better event to wonder because and google did there and samson need an incredible job was there events too so that was something that i don't think any of us will have considered before twenty twenty that it was going to be an option to watch this event. Live this way everybody live instead of having some people who is going to be there and we were really jealous about it. I mean as a someone who like my job as a developer advocate. Is that go to shows like this. Go to conferences. Go to all the types of meet ups and things like that. I think we look at the larger shows for inspiration on how we can do things and this was like the hardest one because at the end of the day like no one's got the production budget of apple google and samsung so for us. It's like okay. How can we take these massive productions that they're doing in downscale them for the local know. Meet up or you know the online conference that you know for a lot of these companies a lot of these foundations and organizations. They rely on these events to stay afloat until the next year. And so it's like super important but yet we're all like rolling with the punches and doing some crazy stuff and honestly that's kind of been like the coolest thing for me to notice. Is that presentations change. I saw developer conferences where people were doing like scripted. Talks in law muslim Full featured production sets. And they look like you know everyone's favourite high school musical play but like at the same time it was it was causing us to think differently and to do things completely unheard of in terms presenting Whether you were presenting you know for your favorite programming language your favourite productivity tool a meet up or whether you're introducing a brand new chip architecture as in the case of apple

I kind of wish they did use c. As the connection on these devices and i also i don't know i almost wish there was an on off button because here's what you have to do. So these airpods. Max come with a case but quote unquote in the biggest air quotes possible case because basically comes they little sleeve that you slide the airpods max into and their little sleeve has a flap that closes in when they're in that case it tells the airpods max to enter the low power mode and that's how it will stay on standby for a long time if you don't put it. In that case. mk hd was saying. It takes up to two hours for them to go to sleep on their own. Not being used so you really kind of have to put it back in that little sleeve to make sure that they. The battery holds its charge. You know if you're going to throw it in a bag or whatever. So i find that strange and i also find that case. It's not a case like it's not really protective about anything there's openings everywhere they want you to carry it by the handle of like the head strap of the headphones like that is the handle. When they're in this little sleeve. And i mean let's be honest. It looks a little bit like an undergarment. I won't go into too many details about that but it just feels a little strange. I'm concerned about the price k. If it's worth the to it's worth a to if it isn't it isn't it isn't to me. It seems like you might be here. That's great buzz. While i hope they have bigger batteries in other airpods. Stir presumably there's still commit degrade as well so come a point when you're five hundred and fifty dollar had funds need tap. Their batteries replaced right. How long will that be. How degrade when we stop being twenty hours and i did see. I think the battery replacement will cost like seventy nine dollars so better than a new pair for sure. Shut

GOP pushes Barrett toward court as Democrats decry sham.
"Republicans powered Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett close to confirmation yesterday pushing past Democrat objections and other properties during the covid nineteen crisis in the drive to seat President Donald Trump's pick before the November third election. The Senate Judiciary Committee said October Twenty second for its vote to recommend Barrett's nomination to the full Senate the final confirmation vote expected by month's end. You don't convene a Supreme Court confirmation hearing in the middle of a pandemic when the Senate's on recess when voting has already started in the presidential election in a majority of states declared Senator Chris coons. Republicans eager to fill the seat of the late Justice Ruth Bader. GINSBURG counted that trump is well within the bounds to fill the vacancy and they have the votes to do it. Barrett's information would bring the most pronounced ideological change on the court in thirty years poised to launch a new era of court rulings on abortion voting rights and other matters that are now open to new uncertainty. The forty eight year old Barrett was careful during two days of public testimony, not to tip her views on many issues or take on the president who nominated her facing almost twenty hours of questions from senators. She declined to offer specifics beyond the vowed to keep open mind and take the cases as they come. Barrett refused to say whether she accepts the science of Climate Change under questioning from Kamala Harris saying she lacked the expertise to know for sure and calling it a topic to controversial to get into. Barrett framed acknowledgement of a man made climate crisis as a matter of policy not science when she was pressed by the Democratic senator from California the Federal Appeals Court judge responded that she did think Corona virus was infectious and smoking caused cancer but rebuffed Harris on the climate change question for seeking to solicit an opinion on a matter of public policy. Especially, one that is politically controversial effectively ignoring science in the face of the ever-present. Climate. Crisis.
How to get a Helicopter License
"Let's talk about what it takes to get a helicopter certificate because I'm sure that's probably the first thing in people's minds. What are the FAA requirements for getting a helicopter private? Well. You're GONNA, find the requirements under part sixty, one, one, zero nine, which is where you're gonNA find the airplane requirements as well, and essentially it's a very closely mirrored to what the airplane requirements are you going to a total of forty hours under a part sixty one school Twenty hours of that is required to be dual ten hours of it is required to be a solo on your own, and then the other ten hours are generally made up of preparatory work or some of the students weaknesses in what they need to prep for the the ride and I, think everybody knows that forty hours is the minimum. Certainly airplanes people end up with more than that. What's kind of? The typical range of ours that people end up when they get their private in what drives, that WH- take some people longer than others. So all the requirements for helicopters were really based off of the airplane requirements. If you look anywhere in the far aim, you're gonNA see a lot of mention about the airplanes and it's not until you get down to the bottom of the regulations where it says except for helicopters. Helicopters can do this or this doesn't apply to helicopters special be far for an example, doesn't apply to helicopters as far as not being able to get it at any time you can request it at any time but yes, a typically people get their license about fifty hours seems to be difficult I. Don't I'm hearing more and more than in the airplane world fixed-wing world that taken people closer to the fifty hour mark in I. Don't know what that what that's caused by. Like you said and like the regulation say the forty hours is really minimum. I have had one of my students get. It is little as four three hours. But for the most part, the average is around fifty hours or so in helicopters I can say they're quite a bit different than airplanes. There's a lot more moving parts in just getting the actual hand. Eye Coordination Down to fly the helicopter is probably typically what takes a little bit more time. Now on top of that, you know it has to do with people schedule. Everybody's busy whether you have a job or a family or your own school or whatever. It might be. You know the more consistent you are in your training, the bathroom it's GonNa go typically. Nowadays, it other than when you and I flew. It's pretty nice because we have the Internet and we have. Why a few programs on that, you can take ground school online whether it be three o'clock in the afternoon or three o'clock in the morning whatever works for you, and then you and I. Can. Sit Down with our students and do information clarification making sure that people understand what they're learning. What about folks like me? Who have a airplane certificate and actually have one helicopter lesson on my belt Bell let's forget about that. What are the our the requirements different for someone who's already a pilot? Yeah. So right there the requirements are thirty hours flight time twenty hours of dual and ten hours of Solo. For the most part. All My ad on students are still taking somewhere in the forty hour range to fifty hour range, just depending on their schedule but the the minimum requirements drop by ten hours. Now, if you go to a part one, forty, one school that typical forty hours initially drops down to thirty five hours. That being said it still minimum the way I run my flight school as far as the education the syllabus recording I run at very much like a part one, forty, one school. So from a learning skill standpoint airplane pilots at any kind of a disadvantage because we need to unlearn things that we thought we knew. Well. I can tell you go on the opposite way for sure since I did that getting my helicopter first and then my but yeah. So there are two things that really pop out my head. One of the things is you know airspeed is our lifeline in an airplane in a helicopter that's not the case rotor RPM. Line the one of the. GonNa Notice with new pilots or on pilots. I should say when they're coming in for approach, they don't like getting slow whereas one. You know what you do when you coming on approach whether we're practicing shallower, not steep approaches whatever they may be we end in a hover. And airplane pilots don't like when you touch the ground. You're still going down the runway though is just getting them to understand that it's okay to lose airspeed because it's rotor RPM that we're concerned with the other thing is in a stall or an engine failure. One of the first things they tell you to push forward to regain airspeed don't do that in a helicopter, particularly a two bladed rotor system helicopter because that'll put you into A. Low gravity situation, and if you're in a low gravity alone g situation, you can actually aerodynamically take take the fuselage of the aircraft and the rotor system that is no longer supporting the fuselage and you can actually snap that off similarly to over controlling an airplane in saying Arab addict situation or windy situation breaking the wings off other want things that you need a particularly watch. The other thing is we don't lead with the rudders interns. We don't have rudders we have pedals, but they're anti Torque pedals in that strictly to keep the ball centered if you will or to keep the nose pointed into the wind, the more power you pull. The more anti left pedal that you need an opposite that of meeting right pedal when you're taking off in an airplane.
How B-787 Captain Shreenand Sadhale got his start in aviation
"So tells you got your start in aviation. Well I grew up in India. And you know in India as you. Envision isn't as accessible as it is Let's say in the US. So there's no there was actually no generally vision avenue I grew up in the eighties. But we used to live. Right on the final four and the one four. And this is the time when jets. Loud. and. Quite a spectacle come into. And even though they were not too many a couple of jets. Rushed to the window to see them. It was always an exciting part of. Growing up. Watching these airplanes I had no family who was involved in aviation, but my dad used to travel a lot. And going. To the airport to receive and. That was quite. It was quite excited and. Attracted me to, but I guess it was. was. Okay. So how old were you when you took your first flying lesson that? Point. Twenty twenty-six, what happened was I always wanted to be a pilot. I. My vision was in twenty grigny anymore. So the was out of the picture. and. The fact that I couldn't fly fighters anymore meant my interest sort of windows into. Automobiles and motorcycles. Which is why I ended up being automobile engineer. But I was interested in working at a desk so I started writing or magazines. And I started off, my first job was actually. As a motoring journalist. And I was having a great time driving getting invited on test drive and bribing all sorts of. was sort of. started to come back a little bit and I guess I was looking up. As to how I could still become a pilot. that point in time Singapore Airlines as luck would have it. This compute bureau luck as Singapore Airlines came up with an ad in the newspaper for their credit. And the deal was that debate for your flying. The Youtube underplay. And you had to work with them for seven years. And when I read it I, it felt like the sort of thing that only happens to somebody else. I don't. So so they are going to pay they're going to pick up the TAB and there's only a seven year commitment. That's a good deal. It has been I mean have done it for. So I. But I didn't really expect that I would get through. So i. sent him application then as like whatever they would call. I give the interviews. And the other funny story about the interview. You had to down what Ellen you wanted to go to India group. So there was a choice between Singapore Airlines passenger line. Silkair, which is the regional airline. And as I got. And I wrote a Kabul has my first choice. And they were quite stunned because in the first interview, they asked me. You show you I go because you have to make off. Because I I will because I make great coffee. and. I really do want to fly the seven four seven. And in the second interview again. Asked me. Don't. I said. I know people were was in buffalo so I have absolutely no. No. No did you say the way to ministry? Did you say this because you thought it would be an easier way to get hired or do you really want to fly boxes instead of people? I just wanted to fly the seven I. I didn't really okay what? What it was filled with. A really really wanted to fly December seven and you add it was being phased out by the time. I would have gone online right? So the only way to get the flight would be to cite S I will. Okay. So they hired you right. Did I mean as? I say it's one of the best mistakes made released. Get in as through the cracks and Between was done in two parts. You had to do the ground school I in single. and. After that, you did the initial part of the ocean licensed in. Australia. Oh. Okay. Now all the the ground school and everything I. Assume there were people from all different countries was all the training conducted in English. Yes. It was and there was a little bit of lying on one fifty two in Singapore. Essentially just to see if you could. You know you had the hand eye coordination and that sort of thing. Aviv. Singapore study was essentially just to clear your eighty peel. So that's how they did was they made sure you could read the Terry. And once you got your DP, which was the frozen beal. Scientists, which was in Australia. Okay and how many hours did you get in Australia? So we the one seven do and the barren, and that was about fifty dollars. But here's the interesting part the for the guy who went on the white bodies. They made them fly. Lear jet for twenty hours. In the Brisbane and a this used to happen when I was in the program opted after that. That is one program that I could really signed up. And more years of my life. To plan because. It. It is quite a yeah and quite fantastic experiences when to fly away forty five meaning.
The Shade Room: Pros & Cons
"In a world filled with Daesh ously bountiful boss of headlines and videos that screen world saw the shave room has taken instagram by storm in two thousand fourteen Joachim. Wanda start at the shade room after realizing she can use her love for celebrity gossip to practice her writing. But after hating ten thousand followers you want to realize she was on something. Today, the Shade Room has over twenty million followers on instagram and features regular commentary from celebrities like the descent Nicki. menaj and Ti that last part is what makes the Shade Room truly unique outside of twitter it's pretty rare for celebrities and everyday people to have so many interactions with those blurred lines are also what makes the Shade Room? So controversial whether it's making Ziya, Wade owner of harmful comments or the legal back and forth with Cardi B. When it comes to boundaries, things can get ugly. So today we brought on journalist and author George. M Johnson to help us figure out if the Shane Room is good or bad for the culture. Thank you me. I'm excited. You know the showroom has built an empire. Moving celebrity gossip here's what's your take on the importance of celebrity gossip. Gossip. It kind of is what keeps your career going on social media wise. As media has shifted from red carpets to kind of step of house, you can kind of create your own `Paparazzi. Kylie Jenner. Day. The. Whole Light Brown skinned girl only. Even though it was big, it kept her name out there viability for twenty hours on. Sale somewhere absolutely down, I think that celebrity gossip in general is fun I. Think it just gives me something to think about. Everyday life especially, these days I'm like recently has gotten dark I will say. The thing that? Has To be say. For the most part, it can be fun. I think that there is a difference between having good fun and that exposing like the more vulnerable aspects of somebody's life four laps, all that being said, what's actually start our. Conversation today with the pros. So you our guest you welcome to start off with the pros at Oh i. Froze are that the platform very very large and When they are used for good, can generate a lot of money especially to light nonprofit organizations are community based organizations and especially small businesses. I think a lot times sites will amplify. Small black businesses or business owners were creating things and it literally opens you up to people to support your products i. think in ways when you utilize your platform to uplift. And encourage and support resources in things that are out there for black folks I think that's something that more of. These types of sites can start to do. Now that's the point I do wonder what percentage like if you actually did, what percentage of share on posts are act I kind of lean towards the lifted Maybe one out of every fifteen. Twenty. That's something I. Think if I'm considering what my pro is I think the showroom actually does what I consider a pretty exceptional jobs documenting how black people use the Internet, black folks have. In DEX on social media, you know we are on twitter. So much is referred to as black twitter. This thing that all kind of white corporate executives are trying to figure out and the share room kind of will break down those pieces before black people like I think about the the not obeying video that came out recently. Day aware she. Fucking Bang. Not A. wakeup talking about not obeying and I'm like what is going on and I knew that I can go to the shave room and it will break down who made it why popular all the means they had developed all around it and I think that actually can be a big service like I don't know of too many other places that are talking about. The way. Black people use the Internet and social media like the share room us. Come along with a whole lot of other stuff. Absolute. Auto. I think that this shade room is a reliable platform for black celebrity. A celebrity period is is celebrity gossip every single celebrity whether they want to admit it or not they benefit from the celebrity height machine and that gossip like gossip mechanism the shade room does is provide back black celebrities who are frequently shut out of your us. Weekly's people magazine's it's a place. Where you know a black celebrity knows that somebody is GonNa care who they are what they're doing whether they are selling Tommy T or in the case of the simone dry like usually I like to keep some of the scams but I can be some old was I can go on the find out but also Michelle Obama gives a speech at the Democratic National Convention. Even if I missed it. Yeah NPR. Have NBC. SHAVER. Remarks on that to the thirty years from now we look back. The Oscars, the grammys, the emmys, the institutions that don't frequently reward black talent. We might look back did not see an accurate reflection of what was happening in the culture, our culture at the time American culture at the time. But this Shade Room Shave is GonNa Habit accurate count black people the culture and shaver actually documents a wide variety of black people and I think that's a good thing. Archive of like everything going on black. That's a good point. It's an interesting slice.
One Priceless Lesson We Often Forget About Love and Life
"One priceless lesson we often forget about love and life by Mark Chernoff mark and Angel Dot Com. Everything, we need. Jose's wife Maria was born in a one bedroom stand alone home on the outskirts of Playa del Carmen Mexico. was a fine little home, but her father Oscar wanted a real house. So he worked two jobs a sixty hour week factory job, and then another twenty hours or so a week as carpenter. Oscar say fifty percent of his income for over a decade to build his family of four bedroom house like the ones in the better parts of town he put half his family savings and a low community bank and he talked the other half away in a safe he kept hidden on their property. On the morning Oscar plan to break ground on his family's new house, the local community bank shuttered stores just hours after law enforcement declared the bank was running an illegal and uninsured Ponzi scheme ninety percent of the deposits Oscar made were lost. Then the very next day. The little home was robbed at gun point in exchange for his family's safety Oscar for the rest of the money he had hidden in safe. In the short window of thirty six hours, the family lost a vast majority of their savings from years of hard work the night for the first time as Mother Olga watched Oscar cry. She approached Oscar with their infant daughter cradled and rocking in her arms and said, it's just money minister just a house. We've so much more than that. We have a truly loving home. Oscar looked at Olga, dried his eyes and nodded his head in agreement. He spent the rest of the night with his baby daughter holding her tight to his chest reminding himself that he might not be able to give his family, the house he dreamed of, but he can continue to give them a truly loving home. And for the nine years that followed Maria grew up in that small loving one bedroom home. After the first year, a sister Andrea joined her after the third year brother Roberto showing to the memories share of that time are truly heartwarming for example, everyday. Of Maria Early Grade School years she remembers her father coming home from work just before dinner giving her and her siblings, individual hugs and kisses, and then asking them to questions. More you loved. Do you have love in your heart? All three shoulder would nod their head smiling then he'd gather them all up in a big group. Hug and call out Metoo we are blessed. We have everything we need. With that house. Even. Though Oscar sincerely believed what he said to his children. He was still pursuing his dream of building a larger and more comfortable house for his family and nine years after losing all of their savings Oscar. Once again, saved enough money to begin building that new house twenty feet behind their little one bedroom home he started with framing out the foundation of the kitchen them Ria's mother had always quietly dreamed of. One Cement Block at a time paycheck by paycheck. Slowly, but steadily built a house he'd come. So close to building nearly a decade beforehand I a kitchen, a large family room and two bathrooms than a master bedroom bedrooms for each of the children and a nice covered front patio. In two thousand, two, win Jose Maria and start falling in love with her Oscar was still building that house. Soon. Thereafter, he put the last few finishing touches on it. The, entire family celebrated for weeks on end and Nowadays Oscar Olga still celebrate holidays and special occasions at the House with all three of their children and their children's families several times a year. But, the stories prizes lesson has nothing to do with that house. Just, a bonus the first day Jose met Marie his family. He noticed how sincerely loving and happy the whole family was. He praised Oscar for the beautiful family. He had asked him what the secret was. Oscar. Spent hours sharing interesting heartfelt stories about why his family was the luckiest one in the world. Never, shared all the details about how their house was built. In fact, after years of knowing Maria and her family traveling with them and even living with them for a short time, no one ever thought to tell Jose about how their family's house came to be. They ask questions about the construction few occasions and he received replies about the construction it until after Jose Maria got married and close on their own first house in Miami. Florida that Oscar took Jose for a long walk. He s does a about the details and Jose excitedly shared information about their new neighborhood in the House Oscar listened intently smiled and then finally he shared the story you've just heard. My daughter does not need a house Oscar concluded she needs a truly loving home and when you fill that home with children, your children will need exactly the same. If you that no matter how big or small your actual houses, your children will WanNa come home to you. The rest is just bonus. I know all of this because Jose ms one of my best friends and just this morning over coffee. He asked me where I was going to write about today. When I told him I hadn't yet decided. He smirked said Mama story for you, and then he proceeded to tell me the story I just told you.

vaping for showing of the network gassed an eighteen year old kid yeah what one kid said his lungs felt like he's a seventy year old yeah it's just and everybody thought it was a good way to get off the cigarettes but the problem is people who never smoked or using it and it is it is not without hazards as everybody initially thought in Utah there are two conservative groups were very upset at a school board meeting about a new law that lets teachers answer what they call quote spontaneous questions about sex from students so if your child ask your teacher what is oral sex or something explicit like that oral sex is talking about sex exactly right yeah okay to go back there right okay the teacher on the check is allowed to answer it add that the parents are set to like send the kids

And then of course, we got the Austin power movies in the late nineties and early two thousands and stuff like that. So I mean, he's been around a lot. But again, creative control he had created control on the love guru in that movie was a righteous piece shit. You know what I mean? So. You didn't miss much. But yeah. So I mean, I'm kind of a relevant. Good for Mike Myers. I guess because he needed something. I feel like he's been in movie jails. The love goat grew that was eleven years ago. Yeah. I think it's cool. The Netflix was going into business with people with name power in at least creatively. People have creative agency. I think that's pretty interesting..

So that you and your loved ones and neighbors and colleagues and even some people down the street, the debris early no can get better treatment. We're gonna talk about the importance of that in just a few minutes. One of the things that recruited a piece of art recruited this week is in to one of our patients. So we have a patient who retired. He worked on in Manhattan, New York in one of the buildings just turned seventy is a runner and during his treatment. We would talk about his running and he finished his treatment just a few weeks ago. He had a competition in Perth Australia. So if you know, Australia Perth is on the far western side. So it's a heck of a long trip from here probably twenty hour trip from here. So he finished his treatment. He got on the plane, he flew to Perth Australia. He competed in two races. I think a one hundred meter and a four hundred meter race. He got the gold medal. He came back. And he came this week to show me the metal and to tell me thank you for allowing him to be treated and to have good treatment and to run and to succeed. And to be world champion is a gold medal world champion that he received just weeks after finishing cancer treatment for his prostate cancer. Don't we talk about number one is to think about his achievement to congratulate him, but also to give all of us a chance to reflect on what? Our treatment is like compared to radical surgery. And if you've spoken to people who've had radical surgery robotic surgery, though, often tell you it's like getting hit by a truck and many people are in the hospital. They're laid up. Many people are diapers and IV's or pain infections, incontinence, bleeding, our patient was on a plane to Austria going to win any won a world championship gold medal in track at age seventy. Here's an idea of the work. We do in the vast difference there is in different technologies. And unfortunately, so many people never get to hear about treatment. Choices are phone numbers. Two and two choices and our numbers two and two choices because we want you to understand that you do if you have cancer are your friends or neighbors have choices, and you don't have to have that radical surgery. You don't have to lose your arm or your legs. Your breast your long. Your pancreas bladder kidney most likely there are choices available and choices that give equal or even better results. And if you look at our data for his prostate cancer, you will see that we have better results in his category..
