What is the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier all about?
"You're listening to the how in the world podcast we unravel some of the planet's most perplexing questions about ten minutes. Nope we're not scientists or scholars. We're just normal. People like to figure things out. Sometimes inspiring sometimes informative. Our topics are always fascinating hosted by me mark johnson and my lovely wife me holly johnson. We do the research. So you don't have to veterans day. Twenty twenty was last week and we were watching the ceremony on tv where. The president laid a wreath at the tomb of the unknown soldier. And i had so many so boom. That's how ideas for episodes are born in fact we've had a bunch of ideas recently. I'm not sure what that means. Maybe we've been watching too much. Tv or something. Well have been a lot of events and things going on and questions. Raise like veterans day and christmas. Coming in the spacex mission to the international space station and like our seventh grader pete. Yeah he's just a few good questions lately. And i've got all them in my notes so we'll get to them but before we get to today's episode. I have to mention my favorite veteran dad. Although he passed away ten years ago. I think of every day. He was my hero the very best dad ever in the world. No offence sweetie men take. He was a great guy he was. He had a really interesting time. While in the army. Interesting about the only word. I could come up with their first as a model for army promotional posters literally a poster boy then as a member of general macarthur's honor guard where he hung out with the general and his wife watching movies every friday night. That was a very cush job. But then crap got real when he became a forward observer in the korean war. That's the guy who's part of a team of three who go ahead of the rest of the group in radio back until then where the enemy lines are and stuff. It's a very dangerous job. Maybe the most dangerous in the military at that time yes indeed but he came home then and he met my mom and they had me. Yea so thanks for indulging me a moment to recognize him. Okay let's get to it. I the basics. The tomb of the unknown soldier is in arlington national cemetery and strangely enough. I've never been there. I know the air and space museum. So well i could give tours. But we never went to arlington national. I'm i'm ashamed really. You're mad my school for never taking us there. I don't know but we we've got to do this on our own. We definitely will. The tomb actually contains and unknown soldier from world war. One who was buried ride underneath a memorial which is made of marble like everything in dc tomorrow and the city. It has six wreaths carved into the sides three on the opposite two sides that represent the six major campaigns of world war one on the third side. There are three. Greek figures carved these figures represent peace victory in valor and on the fourth side contains the inscription here rests in honored glory in american soldier known but to god. That's just beautiful. The memorial also referred to as tomb of the unknowns actually has no official name president. Warren g harding officiated the ceremony. That laid this first soldier to rest on veterans day november eleventh nineteen twenty one the tomb of the unknowns generally refers to four tombs world war one world war two korea and vietnam. Three other soldiers were interred in tombs. Right beside the memorial. Those unknown soldiers represent world war two korea and vietnam although the soldier representing the vietnam war was removed once. Dna analysis identified him and he was returned to his family in nineteen ninety eight. He'd only been there like four years or something. The vietnam tomb now intentionally remains empty and is a monument. Honoring all of america's missing servicemen and. Women that's awesome. Yeah one of the questions. I've always had about the tomb of the unknowns. Is how they got the soldier so there's not just one unknown soldier in a war right. I mean. aren't there many. They're just one. And how did they choose this one who would be buried there and where are the rest so tell us about that. Honey yes. That's a great question that i've had to which means probably a lot of you have wondered about it as well for the first memorial. The the world war one memorial they uninsured four soldiers that had been buried in france. They put each in an identical casket and then a decorated wounded. Combat soldier made the choice from these four identical caskets at a city hall in france. He chose the third from the left. And signified is choice by laying white roses on top of that casket. That's the soldier who is in the tomb in dc. The other three were reinterred in france. That's the process that's been used to select the unknown for each tomb and yes there are plenty of unknowns. Buried all over the world.
Guidelines for the Leader and Commander
"Is Jaakko podcast number two, fifty two. With Dave Burke and me Jaakko willink good evening. Dave. Good Evening Echo Charles is taking care of some other business. On the last podcast. Number two, fifty, one with Leif and we started getting into the book guidelines for the leader and Commander by General Bruce Clark but we only made it thirteen pages in two and a half hours, and it's one hundred, seventeen page book. To, recap a little bit, this is a book that I searched for for over a decade I originally heard about this book in my favorite book, which is called about face by colonel. David Hackworth. Finally, found a copy a month and a half ago. and. So here we are just a little background once again on General Bruce. Kark. World War One. World War Two Korea enlisted in one thousand, nine hundred and up going to west point colonel in World War Two. Then a general commanded the Fourth Armored Division in Patents Third Army. Battle the Bulge Distinguished Service Cross three silver stars forty five years. Of Service? And then spend a bunch of time not only leading troops but also training troops or overseeing training commands so. Awesome Career Hackworth talked about him glowingly in the book about face and That's where that's where the star took me a long time to find this book. Who did somebody texted me about it. And said, it was the white whale. that. It was definitely hard for me find this book, but we have it and that's it. That's what we're GonNa do where do you go back into this book? So here we go back into guidelines for the leader and commander by Bruce General Bruce C Clarke. This section starts off with administration some thoughts for the commander. And he says inflammation, I would like to point out the close. Interrelationship between training programs. And Sound. Overall management. So this is something you know when you're that young gung-ho leader. That just thinks, hey, where you're operate whatever that operation is whether it's shooting machine guns or whether that's out selling things or making things and you think, Hey, I'm I'm on the front lines I'm going to make things happen and you think all the administrative stuff you shouldn't have to worry about. That's not me. And I know many individuals that are like that I know one individual in particular like that whose name is Jaakko. 'cause I was definitely like that. Many commanders. I should say I. was like that when I was younger because I absolutely I realize this and you can hear. We'll talk about the paperwork drills that we had to do and how. Life. Came to me. We shouldn't have to do this stuff and I said Oh we're going to do it and we do a better than anybody else. So I figured this out but it is it is definitely a learning moment that people have and so why not learn it right now many commanders are defeated by poor administration. Imagine that just that statement many commanders are defeated by poor administration not defeated because they were tactically unsound not defeated because they made bad decisions not defeated because they couldn't come up with a good plan they fail because their administrative losers. Without. Sound Administration at Commander CanNot Succeed in his training and maintenance programs. Good. Administration is nothing more than applied common sense. I'm including here a number of items that may well be considered a checklist of indicators of sound. Administration. Number. One. Importance of time. The principal coordinating device in the army is time. Learn the proper time space factors. So you can be on time and make reasonable demands of your subordinates. So. So that's number one by the way, which is probably why you hear a lot of talk about time management. Just think about the idea that the first thing he's GonNa say is time this is someone who clearly understands that have all the resources in the world that we have. That's the one that matters the most because we just can't produce more of. I was GONNA say it's the it's the one that matters the most and it's the absolute one that we have the least control much control. You have time you zero you cannot stop it. You cannot bring it back. You gotta say the power curve. I hate that fewing. I hate that feeling and let me tell you what. I realized this a while back. So when you go to the airport if you show up at the airport late. In now look TSA doesn't care that you're late the baggage handler doesn't care that you're late the uber driver does not care what time your planes leaving they're they're doing what they're doing, and so what that does is it takes you have no control. Over that time once it started to commence, what do you have control over going to the airport a little bit earlier? That's all. That's all not that big of a deal. Go to the airport a little earlier, and you won't have to worry about TSA. You won't have to worry about baggage you won't have to worry about. How long it takes for the Uber driver or the left let's give proper. Credit or lift driver to show up and bring you to the airport. Not so so how'd you get control? You can't control time once it's unfolding you can't bring it back you have to you have to plan for appropriately. And there's a there's a sense of urgency and I have a pretty good sense of urgency and you you may have may or may not I know like at the monster especially the earlier musters when we weren't. When the backside wasn't quite the well oiled machine that it is now certainly as a well oiled machine now the early musters do. Not a Well oiled machine. So on the on the front side, people would know that when Leith and I were walking out on stage at eight o'clock in the morning, we had two hours sleep because we had to do whatever we had to do behind the scenes and that's just the way it was. I can feel I can feel. When the shortage of time in fact, I think I feel the shortage of time every single day single waking minute.
Tensions rise after North Korea blows up liaison office
"Seems like we have to talk about North Korea again the grand opening of the inter Korean liaison office two years ago was a big deal both symbolic and literally it was meant to reflect improving relationships between north and South Korea heavily covered North Korea blew it up laurel why so this incident is highly symbolic the office was meant to facilitate dialogue between the two Koreas and paid for by the south and sitting on the north soil so North Korea framed the decision to destroy the office as retaliation after a group of defectors use balloons to send anti north Korean propaganda leaflets north of the DMZ but this is really just the latest escalation in in this in these tensions after North Korea last week also announced it would cut off all communications with the south as well in response to the leaflets on it in addition the north also said it would re militarize portions of the border that had been peaceful in recent years so this is really a bad sign that Ted that relations between the north and south are in a very bad place right now and this is particularly disappointing for for Korea watchers after after president trump and south Korean president moon actually had made some progress in negotiations with the north over the last few years at least in appearance anyway even though the Singapore summit in twenty eighteen the agreement was mostly symbolic it it's still sort of paved the way for these this dialogue to continue but unfortunately that that's really gone downhill since then and at the same time there are recent reports that are popping up that are saying North Korea has been ramping up its nuclear weapons arsenal John and last year last year it broke an eighteen month hiatus and and weapons tests conducted in eighteen I think tested mostly short range ballistic missiles since then so is Shawn and Kim yo Jong north Korean leader Kim jong-un's sister has taken responsibility for this attack for blowing up the liaison what do we know about her why would she do this she's a sister on on for quite some time she's been on the sidelines Korea watchers would sort of parse state photos and see where she's standing in and for a long time she was this figure shrouded in mystery now she's come to the fore and she's limited she's been quite quite a dramatic presence in all this she seemed to be a bit more ruthless than her brother and and and there's a great deal of speculation about the kind of role she's currently playing within the regime in Pyongyang and and how much influence she has how much growing influence she has I think her coming to the fore is is important the the the move to blow up this office in Quezon is as low as saying huge blow to political blow to moon jae in the south Korean president who's really yoked his legitimacy and his political aspirations on a real fall with north with the north and that that seems to be in in a tough place right now and of course it is our hope that this explosion also kind of very symbolically blows up what what already faded aspirations the trump administration had that its efforts including these incredibly publicized photo ops with between trump and Kim Jong moon it really blows up the city really underscores the hollowness of the trump plan to get North Korea to do to denuclearize
Why has North Korea stopped talking to South Korea?
"We should probably acknowledge upfront. The North Korea throwing a massive tantrum about something or other is as shocking headlines. Go up there with Sun rises. The Democratic People's Republic is indeed readily imagine as a vast fortified Kat. It's missile launchers as angrily flung toys, its occupant, a child who's upbringing was rarely punctuated by the. None. So this week's announcement that north. Korea has abruptly severed all communications with South Korea may seem like no big deal. It may even be no big deal, and yes, these caveats are being inserted up the top, just in case North Korea just as abruptly decided to end it sulk while this explaining is still current. At issue? This time is the pretty long standing practice of defectors who have fled North Korea for. South Korea and activists sympathetic to them of drifting balloons across the inaccurately named demilitarized zone which separates the two countries. The balloons generally carry anti-regime messages, but also also born chocolate bars, US dollar notes and advertisements for the joys and benefits of treacherous, warm, mugging capitalist revisionism. She never. We have made a miniature version of the New Testament and we are sending these over by using balloons. Last year, we sent about sixty thousand copies disabled. We're going to send about seventy thousand copies. To. Don Those pudding recently that. To. In fairness to North Korea, which is not a phrase. One authors often. North Korea does have a case. If your neighbor continually floated blimps over your share fence, which scattered pamphlets declaring that you'll loan was tatty in your bird box was ugly. You'd likely scratch them off your Christmas card list as well. There's also the fact that until as recently as two thousand eighteen. South Korea operated immense banks of loudspeakers along the border which broadcast among other things deafening decibels of K pop into North Korea. In this specific context, the keeping of Kim Jong Hoon thumb off. The Big Red Button appears an active superhuman restraint. That aside, however North Korea has never been famous for its sense of proportion in much the same way that South Korea has never been famous for its non annoying pop music and Pyongyang's response to the balloon issue has been characteristically vituperative. Roden Sinmun the official newspaper of the Central Committee of the workers. Party of Korea and a journal which can be safely seemed to be accurately. Reflecting Pyongyang's thinking has called the balloon senders disgusting riffraff rubbish like Mongrel dogs and human scum has said that the tolerance of their behavior by South Korean authorities has aroused out dismay that one may have lost a few degrees of each and translation and menaced vote. showed them how much price they out to be forced to pay for hurting the holiest. And emotions of our people. There's yards more of this sort of stuff if you're a bit start for distraction. The practical implications of North Korea's latest strop as follows the twice daily calls to the Cross Board Liaison Office in the border city of case Song will cease. No more balling sniffling puppet of American imperial thuggery. How's IT hanging? The channels which allowed the military's of the two Koreas to communicate with each other will also be closed. These strategic upshot of all this from north. Korea's perspective is a little hard to glean. The balloon offensive is not new indeed has been going on for a while. North Korea is clearly choosing to make a thing of it, and as invariably the case with people prone to making a thing of things. If it wasn't this, it'd be something else. In this instance, the significant aspects may not be so much the what as the WHO, or whom whichever is correct, one of the signatures on the new no speaks policy. Was that of Kim Yo Jong increasingly prominent sister of Kim Jong UN, long thought of as a sort of executive assistant to her brother. These last few months have seen Commute Jong increasingly framed as a policymaker, and perhaps given the recurrent speculation about Kim Jong UN's health, they future leader North Korea may be trying to get North Koreans and the rest of the world used to her. And all this could be a pretty standard north. Korean play create. Crisis Demaim concession declare victory, and it's a standard play because it works in diplomacy is in life, the reasonable often defer to the unreasonable as long as it will persuade them to shut up. South Korea has already and with an

Crossing Borders: North Korean Food
"North Korea must be better known for its brutal regime than its feasts. Birth South Korea becoming more familiar with cuisine from northern neighbour. Thanks to escapees who brought their recipes with them across the border and that has inspired at least two one shift from Seoul to breach the peninsula's culinary divide more Nichols Jason Star the reports. The Restaurant Jinshan is located down a short flight of steps in what is known as a half basement. It's the kind of partially subterranean layer. That's meant to be a bomb shelter in case North Korea attacks. So maybe it's fitting that cuisine from above the border is what's on the menu here. Chinchillas head chef legion. Ho is prepping with his three sous chefs ahead of the dinner hours. I ask him what he's chopping up on the cutting board this spring onion. What kind of dishes would you use this in here at the restaurant reuse this spring on your for the Congress for one meal which is which is a signature dish? Which is come from This korea bottles of North Korean. Soy Sauce and Ginseng. Alcohol are on display in the restaurant and on a small table are four. North Korean cookbooks. That Lee somehow got his hands on south. Koreans aren't allowed to travel to the north. And there's no trade between the two Koreas. Lee gives me a tour of the kitchen hostage and we do like in monkeys Dumplings Mondays. Dumpling and also we do like sausage which is so we make Sunday in here. And we sting leap. Who's thirty-seven trained in New Zealand to cook Italian French and Spanish cuisine? He only learned to make South Korean dishes about a decade ago and has since published a cookbook solely says when Chin Chin's owner approached him about creating an entirely North Korean menu. He was ready for the challenge but there was just one problem. Oh actually I had no idea what it's like because I never tried in my life. I don't even know what it is and I never soon someplace who sells North Korean food. Every South Korean is familiar with at least one North Korean Dish Nang me on noodle served in an icy broths. But that's been around for decades. Lee wanted to offer more contemporary North Korean Fair. So he went looking for help. From North Korean refugees. There are about thirty three thousand. Who have defected to the south most within the past decade We budget most Korean lady a Refugee Yup. And she's sure how to do it when you started learning about North Korean cuisine. What surprised you about it. I actually surprised because insults growing food. We don't really make spring onion oil. Which is a day. Saute the Spring on an oil or really low hit to make it like oil flavor a spring spring onion flavor oil in South Korean food. We we would never do it in that way. And in South Korea they use a lot of chilis in every dishes is very spicy in South Korea. You can easily find food which is red. But it's quite hard to find red food in. North Korea and South Korean food is also a little bit sweeter than most great food because in North Korea. They are really hard to find sugar. His shoe is really expensive in those some of the items on. The menu are quintessential North Korean market meals. Like in Jogi which means artificial meet its ground soybeans and rice stuffed into Tofu skin. And there's a noodle dish called Noma Gook Soo that I as well as Lee had never seen in South Korea is that you cannot find. I never seen it. I never heard before and it's really hard to make that compete to Pasta Pasta flour. Egg Yolk This this noodle has potato such an flour and buckwheat and some soult like leaving associates will really make hot to make into fit texture. Lee explains that in globalized South Korea North Korean cuisine somehow seems more authentic and he thinks that's why his customers want to try it so those Korean is changing moody. I about food coach these days a lot of young people. They don't it much Korean food so they they like to eat like hamburgers places. Mexican food is big here and we love Chicken Fried Chicken. I think we love fried chicken more than anyone in the earth. Lease Korean customers aren't all from the southern half of the peninsula. He tells me that some North Korean defectors have dropped by to what North Korean customers. Tell you about the food here. Oh really liked it. They will really pull in those career so day and they will try it in your life. Artificial meat out of your. It's kind of ironic. That North Korean has to come all the way to South Korea to try food from their hometown. This one can't survive on artificial meat alone to help wash that down. Chin-chin has a very well-stocked Fridge. You have quite a beer refrigerator. Here with some selections from all around Asia so we have improved along McHugh. The Tae Dong River Veer puts this is not for sale. Just North Korean. Beer tastes good. No try the deployment life so so really just for show got just supposed to Lee says trying. North Korean beer is at the top of his list. If someday South Koreans are allowed to travel above the
The military's famous Santa Tracker began with a wrong number
"One December your day in one thousand nine hundred fifty five. Colonel Harry Shop. A highly decorated air force commander was sitting at his desk in Colorado. When the phone rang this was not just any old phone call either? which shop quickly realized how because shop had two luke phones on his desk one black one red? The Red One was ringing at the height of the Cold War. If you are colonel shop a commander in the early iteration of NORAD. America's defensive warning shield against the tax. You don't want want the red phone to rig. It was wired directly to a four star general at the Pentagon in when it rang. Things got got real very real. Except this time Karl Barth into the phone but there was silence on the other end until finally a small voice said is this clause shall by all accounts. I was briefly confused in then fully annoyed. Is this a joke. He said wearing around at the wide eyed staff or any sign of a smile he let the caller having what did you think you're doing cetera. Et CETERA. He began but then the a techno military might of the United States was brought up short. By the sound of sniffles. Whoever was on the phone was crying and shop suddenly realized it really was a child who really was trying to reach cynical? The Colonel Pause considered and then responded. Ho Ho Ho. He said as his crew looked on astonished. Of course this is Santa Claus. He talked talk to the youngster for several minutes. Hearing his wishes for toys and treats assuring him he would be there on Christmas. Then the boy ask Santa to bring him something Nice for his mommy I will I will Santa Shop said in fact close to your mommy now. The boy put his mother on the phone and shop.

The number provided m. e. two dash six six eight one went went right to one of the most secure phones in the country. It was a Typo one. Digit was wrong. When Xiaopeng up the phone rang again he ordered his staff to answer each Santa Call while he got on the phone? The black one this time with eighteen not to set up a new link to Washington. That might have been the end of it but a few nights later shop as was his tradition took his family to have Christmas Eve. Dinner with his on-duty troops when they walked into the control center. He spotted acute drawing on a board showing a sleigh pulled by eight unregistered reindeer. Coming over the top of the world the exchange range that followed became stuff of both family and air force alleged. What's that the commanding officer asked? Just having a little fun colonel.

"two korea" Discussed on KTRH
"Four. And welcome back to coast to coast on Clark with us. We'll take calls with Don next hour. Her book is called the forbidden text. This book was based perhaps on your father's counter-intelligence experiences. Don, I'm I'm guessing that in part by synthesized both my world and his world together to create kind of a new hope for all this. So it is definitely a filled with the counterintelligence a he experienced the helped him right three bucks before he died. He died at fifty three. That's young. In three wars and ultimately died of Agent, Orange placement. Vietnam. Vietnam, the tail end of World War, Two Korea. And then Vietnam, and then he was in the Cold War. He was serving with. Initially to see I see and then the CIA and he had what was called cosmic Clarence which moves top secret clearance, among all the NATO allies, we actually succeeded in capturing the highest ranking KGB official so the last two years of his life. I spent traipsing around meeting the context that we're still alive and helping him chronicle all of his adventures, and then the last two weeks before he died, I was lucky enough to have him share with me. Things that we're still classified that he didn't feel he could write down. And so I waited and then ultimately I was able to wrap all of these things up in the forbidden text. What would you say were some of the things that he would have talked to you about that would just scare the living daylights out of us. Well, you know, he did talk a lot about I'm sure on your show. People are familiar with M K ultra. Yeah. He talked about Russian Russian espionage program where they went beyond the ultra program and they were actually breeding for psychic abilities. And then one of the reasons why they had some problems with M K ultra was that people still had that that underlying conscience for the strip these children in Russia from their parents at an early age. And then in that way, we're able to fracture them much more deeply so that they could carry out the task. So not only were they bred for psychic abilities. But they also were raised in such a way that they were able to be programmed as sleeper agent Carr beyond what you might imagine. There's so many thanks going on Arthur Mike God. That's it. That's what I talked about. In part in the book was the reactivation of those of those sweepers. And. They were very well positioned within the west tell me about the title, the forbidden text, either forbidden taxed, well, this is the first in a trilogy, and it references in ancient text, which in the story, the the evil villains are also after that that has supernatural abilities. So it's the it's the failsafe device for managed in pieces are regathered together. Not only would help these sweepers. He'll their fractured, selves and avert global disaster. But it also helps humanity evolve beyond this repeated repeated cycles of Warren trauma that we have. And that if you know, if we don't break that cycle, even with the advent of AI coming in and all these exponential technologies. We're just we're really at risk large. Do you think technology don's go in a little too fast? And too far. I don't think we're going to be able to. To slow it down. I think it's definitely living at an exponential rate. I think what we need to do is. Sure that we keep the humanity in it. So we need to think about the fact that we're building technologies a mirror image of ourselves. And we think about the learning is busy learning from our conversations and from our actions. But are we really all that evolved? I we really all that compassionate and tolerant. So what is a really learning? I think we need to pay a lot of attention to that before you got on a story about the Russian Orthodox patriarch Koo believes that high technology is a is a textbook walked to the anti Christ. Basically. You know, he's he says, you know, there's nothing wrong with technology, except that the way it's moving. It's gonna put us in the areas. We don't wanna be that's a little bit of of some of the things you point out. Absolutely. And and we're definitely we need to maintain our critical thinking skills, which I think, of course, the education the way it's set up right now people aren't being taught how to think critically. They aren't being taught how to question and make independent decisions about things. Even the ability to have proactive conflict resolution is just going by the wayside. And I think a pack in the way we're consuming things through our smartphones. Like you were saying it's creating a lot of polarization that we're seeing right now, tell me about your trip to Peru. And what happened there? Well, the trip to Peru was really amazing. I I had been called for a long time to go to the date of the gods. Which is in second Peru, right by Bolivia, and it was difficult to find a guy who was willing to take me down there. Because the locals believe that ad at dusk. That aliens come walking through the gate or that that people can go the other direction through the gate as their shamans had. It's like a Stargate. Right. It is. It's exactly it's supposed to be Stargate. And so I had a very difficult time. Finding a guy who willing to take me down there a day that we were supposed to leave out of Kounellis go down we took off and we had a taxi. And there was a riot in the entire Panamanian PanAmerican highway was shut down. And so Mike I thought this was a sign a sign from the gods that we were supposed to turn around. And I said, no, we are going and so. So despite the fact that the road itself was was on fire and people had build big barriers with class and boulders we were walking. And then we would hire local use that that had bikes, and they would be willing to take us a few kilometers at a time. And we went further on frigging. Ultimately, we ended up walking across a bridge that was on fire to get to this city village near the Stargate, and from there we were walking along trails, and as you can imagine it was it was quite a challenging because we were at above thirteen thousand feet. The elevator is quite extraordinary. And then the approach the rock outcropping where the Stargate is big thunderhead loomed overhead and my guide, you can physically see him shaking. He was so afraid so he said, I will take you close enough to where you're you know, within a within a foreseeable distance to the Stargate, but I won't go any closer. And he took a picture of me as I was doing a Peruvian Sam ony with coca leaf in front of the Stargate before I went into and meditative trance with the Stargate, and in that graph, which I didn't see until the next day when we got back there. Are you can see it's like the the air is a live with electric to me. It just felt like everything had started to vibrate. Really fast. And so have you ever been to the Stargate, George, I've not been there at all? But I was gonna ask you something must be happening there for them to truly believe that there's some kind of opening or passageway there's so much lower about this Stargate. And of course, there's a lot of reports of over lake Titicaca, which is which is very near to the Stargate about UFO sightings. So I think the culture and the history, and and something something is definitely happening here, and I had a very transcendent experience at the Stargate myself what happened. Well, I I went up and initially I wasn't quite sure how to approach it. There's an imprint in the center where you were supposedly in the past people had put a golden disc that unlock the Stargate, and I was guided to sit with my back to it and and being almost meditative position. And I had done that for about two minutes. When suddenly it was as if I was my eyes are closed, but it was as if I was in golfed in a flood light from this guy. So this giant beam of white light came down, and I felt transported. I it was I could open my eyes at that point. I'm sure I was probably in transcend. My eyes were still closed by felt like my eyes and. You could see the sky, but you were in a swirl of light as if it was DNA strand. What do you think this beam was coming from a spacecraft? You know, you would think that based on movies? And I I didn't I wasn't thinking in those terms at that point. I was just surrendering to the experience, and I perceived it as if I was taking about forty years into the future and connecting with my future self in connecting with knowledge about what was possible for humanity and each of us as individuals, and in many ways, it was a revisitation of what I had learned in my twelve year old near death experience. But with a lot more understanding about helicopter changed things at the beginning level, which ultimately, of course, has been supported by a lot of research and EPA genetics lately. But I was shown from this perspective forty years out into the future that we are really at a. A fork in the road, if you will decisions that we make today are going to have dramatic outcomes in the future about whether you know, we as humanity are going to survive the way, we'd like to the impact on environment with the planet. And so from this perspective of forty years in the future. A lot of information was uploaded. And when I when I came back into my physical fence into my physical body, I felt like I was floating above the ground, and it took me quite a while to ground back in. It sounds like you're abducted. Alien abduction. I I I didn't perceive it to be that way. However, I can understand why it sounds that way. I certainly did not feel like I was at the Stargate in that location. Any longer. I felt as though I had had a complete temporal shift in time and place and had a tremendous amount of information shared with me from a perspective where technology was far advanced compared to where we are today were you aware of wormholes? Then does I know you are now, you know, I was aware of wormholes to the extent that certainly some Russian science indicated that people who are very well connected. And I'm sure you probably have some people in your life where you could finish each other's sentences or happens all the time. Exactly. So there was a Russian experiment done that. They claim that people who have that type of connection actually have tiny wormhole connections between them that makes this type of Hypo communication possible. And then certainly I'm I'm good friends with Russell targ who's a physicist and just had him on a couple of weeks ago. I know he was so he was so excited about being on and his work with a project Stargate, which was run out of Stanford research institute. Well, they were looking at remote viewing where you can be in point point, a, and you can view something in point B and get information from that. And so in a way, you're it's almost like creating a wormhole when you think about a one hole as taking you from point eight point b without regard to time or space. So understanding that and then looking at some of the more modern research that's come out to about what happens when people create genuine connections with their future self and how that can impact their ability to save money the willingness to exercise it can impact their health all of these things just like creating a genuine connection with your future self or we know that visualization which is not exactly a wormhole. It's a step. You could you could use it as part of a war experience. We've seen that over and over help people perform better Stanford athletes use that to perform better so did baseball players. And of course, the brain when it's in that different state it perceives the now, whatever you're visualizing as if it is reality. So you don't variations of that experience? But the the one hole that I went through at the Peruvian Stargate really convinced me that we need to give people tools to begin to connect with their future selves and with future different future probabilities. So that we can make better decisions today if we can look at things from the perspective that that has good foresight. So George imagine you were stuck in a forest, and you didn't know how to get out. But different version of you had the foresight. They'd already gotten out of the forest and they had great foresight. And they could tell you which path to take if you want to end up in which in which destination. In the better destination too. So it's a shortcut you can save time. You can avoid mistakes you can end up in a much better destination. And if there's one thing we really need to be mindful of especially with exponential tech. We leave can't dilly dally around any longer. We have time for that to be smart. The Stargate in Peru, physically on the outside. What does it look like is an assertain geographical region? It is it's located on about twenty kilometers from lake Titicaca down near Bolivia is it like in a cave or something. No, it's in a rock outcropping. So very unique rock like structures that are basically in the in a great vast expanse of nothing else. So they stand out by themselves and the Stargate is looks like a giant carved doorway in the middle of a big rock wall. And there is an impression in the center of it where legend has it of gold disc would fit..
North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un Kicks Off New Year With Address And A Warning To U.S.
"Support for this podcast and the following message. Come from e-verify, delivering the technology to help employers verify work eligibility for new employees evolving to support the needs of your workforce at either five dot gov slash go. Let's go higher sitting in a leather chair and wood paneled room North Korea's leader kicked off the new year with an address to his nation and a warning to the US Kim Jong Hoon said he's willing to meet with President Trump a second time but threatened that if international sanctions against North Korea continue they'll have no choice, but to take a new path NPR's Anthony Kuhn joins us now from Seoul to talk about. What this could mean an Anthony since President Trump met Kim Jong UN in Singapore for that historic summit last year in June the nuclear issue has been somewhat stalled. So can you tell us what new information you heard in Kim speech, actually, most of the speech was not about the nuclear issues for a domestic audience news about the economy, but he did repeat his pledge. To denuclearize and mend fences with the US. Now, let's hear when of the more optimistic. Upbeat parts of his speech, you only to millions or to handle has is our party republics unchanging position on my unwavering will he said to establish a new relationship between the K and the US that meets the demands of the new century and to establish a permanent stable peace regime on the Korean peninsula and move towards completing nuclearization by DPRK, he meant the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, which is it's formal name analysts point out that there was actually something significant in elsewhere in the speech, he said that North Korea would stop building Tomek bombs basically cap his country's nuclear program. But as you mentioned, there was also this warning that if the US tries to sanction North Korea into submission or just runs out their patients, then all bets are off in. There could be a return to confrontation. You mentioned a warning did Kim provide any specific. Fix of what he wants from President Trump. I think it's pretty clear that he mostly just wants the meeting at this point. And we know this because North Korea has refused to engage in working level talks with the US, particularly Mike Pompeo and US special on voi- Steve begin have basically been shutout so analysts believe that North Korea is betting everything on a second summit with Trump where they will try to manipulate him into making more concessions and the North Korea's point has been pretty consistent in past months. They say look since the summit we have dismantled some of our nuclear and missile testing facilities. And now we expect the US to reciprocate by providing security guarantees in easing. Sanctions the US wants to to start off as a first move by providing an inventory of all its nuclear assets. But North Korea refuses to do that. What about the relationship with South Korea of the two leaders met? I think about three times in the past year did Kim Jong say anything about South Korean speech. Yes, he talked about continuing the line relations with South Korea. Now at times, the US's seem nervous that this sort of inter-korean reproche mos- getting out too far ahead of the nuclear issue. But lately, they seem to have had a change of heart. They seem to have decided that it doesn't really cost them anything at this point. There's only so far they can go with those sanctions still in place, and they hope that this will just improve the atmosphere and maybe make talks a little bit easier. And that is why the US gave its blessing to last week's groundbreaking on a project to connect railways between the two Koreas and the US says it will try to ensure that the sanctions that are in place. Do not prevent US aid groups from delivering humanitarian assistance to the north. It's intr-. I understand Kim talked about an end to US-South Korean joint military exercises. And at the same time the US and South Korea failed to meet a deadline to remove funding agreement for US forces in South Korea. Right. So there's this little dispute going on between the US and South Korea. How does that affect this conversation? Well, these the two sides were supposed to come up with a new agreement before the old one expired last night, but the US reportedly want South Korea to increase its contribution by fifty percent in Seoul says no the Trump administration wants all US allies to pay more in it's focusing on South Korea. I the South Koreans are also somewhat unnerved by the resignation of Defense Secretary, Mattis applause. He was a consistent advocate for the for the alliance. It's not clear that the US congress would allow any sort of pull out of US troops. But any sign that the US commitment to the defense of South Korea is wavering has. All very concerned. That's NPR's.

South Korean Delegation Begins First Day of Talks in North Korea
"Let's talk about the big news in North Korea. The Workers Party newspaper wrote on syndrome is full of color pictures of the summit between the leaders of the north and the south. How do I know not side because I have a copy here on the desperate because BBC monitoring has been looking at that kind of thing. Apparently, it's six pages long and five pages. Talk of nothing else. State radio news bulletin as well last night was all about the summit and nothing else. So what have South Korea's moon Jae-in North Korea's Kim Jong UN announced? Well, came said, the north and south have agreed on nuclear issues in the peninsula. There's a plan for a railway link for more family reunions, even a mooted joint Olympic bid and South Korea's president moon said the north will shut down a missile test site that scene is quite important and is willing to close its main nuclear complex, if the United States takes some reciprocal action. It's not exactly denuclearization. Which is the buzzword that everyone says everyone is working towards. So how significant a step is it professor John Delury of Yonsei University. Well, it is. But I think, you know, even before we get into that you have to remember that this is an inter-korean summit. These are the the two Koreas that are meeting, and I mean, it's actually quite remarkable in in sort of the background of of the inner Crean interaction. You know, normally denuclearization their cases where the North Koreans just walk out of the room when the south tries to talk about the nuclear issue because North Korea considers that an issue they have with the United States North Korea, South Korea's not nuclear armed and North Korea. Defines the nuclear threat is one that comes from the United States. So there was a lot to this summit that wasn't about the nuclear stuff. It was about the relationship between north and South Korea at how they are going to fundamentally change their relationship from a hostile to a non-hostile one. So those are really the two sides of of what was what's been going on in Pyongyang. How significant are the elements involving? Sort of expecting more sort of reciprocal gestures from the US, but this idea of closing a main nuclear complex shutting down missile test site. We saw that a few months ago. And there was argument about how significant was that. Are these big promises deliverable promises? Well, they're deliverable. I'd say they're medium sized. They're not the really big ones. The big ones that people are looking at a have to do with actually well, first of all declaring the size of their nuclear arsenal since that's not known, and then starting to destroy or turnover some of those bombs, you know, so there are and there are other sort of big ideas like that. I would have been very surprised if those level of issues that come out of possibilities to come out. We don't know what a privately and may have a message that I think he's scheduled to fly off to the United States soon and will meet with President Trump. So there could be more direct diplomacy and messaging between the leaders, but what president moon and chairman Kim Jong whether they're able to announce his first of all keeping denuclearization on the agenda. You know, this is Kim Jong and his own turf to his own people. Having this conversation about denuclearization taking further steps toward it. And I would say, they're, you know, they're medium steps are not exactly baby steps are not

"Of now this is my 18th olympic games my goodness there are so many stories to get into and we will throughout the course of these two weeks put one of the ones coming into this the unification of south korea and north korea particularly with the pyongyang olympics being in south korea what did you make of all of that this is actually the fourth olympics uh at which the two koreas have marched together uh they marched together in two thousand in sydney two thousand and four in athens in two thousand six at the torino winter games uh these are the first olympics however in which the two koreas have entered a combined team although it's only in one sparked a women's ice hockey uh they have had combined teams before uh in nonolympic events but this is the first time in the olympics in your history david with whether it's the koreas or other countries that unify does it ever change anything on the bigger picture now uh it's it's it's a nice pleasant distraction and i think that the olympic movement very much wants there to be a move toward peace they just did you know they've done this before with the the two germanys uh and now they're they're doing it with two koreas uh but i think in the the bigger picture north korea south korea uh they have other issues so this is really just a pleasant uh blip and speaking of other issues the russian doping scandal so russia can't compete but russians can it's confusing just saying that making sure you're saying it right is the message confusing i think the the message is very confusing there are one hundred sixty eight a russian athletes competing in these games uh i'll be blunt i thought that they all should have been banned i thought the entire country should have been banned because they were involved in states concert governmentsponsored doping not just put an athlete in the coach hearing there and because they now appear to have gotten away with it um there they're going to have russia on their uniforms uh i think that uh they just learned the lesson is we can get away with this and next time will do it even better and so i i feel.

"Went to the heart of the regime hit their weakness that's what they're worried about most and there's one other thing people don't talk about that is you know by trump talking about human rights in north korea he also is constraining president moon jae in of south korea who wants this reconciliation with pyongyang probably going to go too far in trying to get it what trump did by talking about human rights was actually boxed in the south korean leader wasn't there an oddly peaceseeking communique the other night from the north about getting together one day as one korea and and as a subset of that question won't it be good by definition when the olympic games get underway this was north korea talking about unification of the two koreas now it's been consistent policy from the beginning of north korea nineteen 48 to unify the koreas and that was what the korean war was all about i recall but they've never given up that goal and fact that is really court to maintaining kim family legitimacy so they need to continue to do that now the thing about the olympics it's good because when you've got the two koreas competing as one you know you don't have them fighting each other and so at least temporarily that's fine but after the end of the olympics bryant then you know the north koreans are going to be demanding things of south korea that south korea can't give and that's when things get really testy between the two koreas as i said south korea's about to be in the news because of the games were about to send our very best athletes to south korea a country where we don't have an ambassador is that an embarrassment we'll certainly is because this is you know at the top of the trump administration foreign policy agenda no issue is more important to the president and we haven't had an ambassador in solve for more than a year unbelievable this is a very simple thing for the trump administration to do is get an ambassador through the senate in their executing poorly on the simple things at the same time on the main policy towards north korea the hard stuff i think they're doing pretty well so you have this sort of paradox.

"Two koreas to regularly talk to each other now of course there is no guarantee that tensions between the two koreas will suddenly disappeared because of this and it's clear at this stage at least that kim jongun wanted the line reopened to discuss this specific topic of allowing a north korean team into the upcoming winter olympics in south korea and in the past when the two sides have held highlevel talks they often haven't resolved much and they usually ended in a stalemate a stalemate so that means we shouldn't really expect anything to come of this opening well you know i think that's the definitely the stance the trump administration in his taking you know the us ambassador to the united nations nikki haley played down talks between the two koreas she said the us was not looking for a bandaid nor an opportunity to smile and take pictures together uh she said the us wouldn't take any talk seriously unless they are able to give kim jongun to give up his nuclear weapons and for president trump's fired after sending his infamous mind nuclear button is bigger than yours tweet he responded to news of these talks with a foulup tweet calling kim jongun rocket man again but saying also this perhaps as good news perhaps not we will see all of this aside when you look at the political situation the region here you have a new president in south korea moon jaein he's made it clear he wants to take a softer approach to the north than previous presidents in south korea and since he's become president his administration hasn't had an opportunity to really talked in than ourselves for him in his administration this is progress it's impossible to know how this of course will influence kim jong un and what he does with the weapons his country has developed the it is a regular dialogue which is something that simply hasn't been there for the past two years between the two sides take the successes where you get them i suppose npr's rob schmitz thanks a lot rob thanks that's.
