How to keep a geranium over the winter.
"Hi, this is Mark news from plant talk radio. Thanks for subscribing and listening to our podcast your gardening questions from plan talk radio. If you have a gardening question you'd like our host Fred Howard to answer send him an Email. The address is Fred at plant talk radio dot com. Now for today's question you have been working on a jury. Neom. Yes. A hip, and it is. It came in late. However, it hadn't had any freeze because of where it was it got downright cold. And I'm sure it dropped into the low forties. Maybe even possibly high thirties. One time Soviet it was not damaged by that. It has had a rough summer because it got adequate water part of the time and not part of the time it sat in a little bit too much shade. It's cetera any up it's in an old galvanized bucket. I punched holes so that will drain et cetera. I picked it up by the handle brought it in the other day. Thank god. It wasn't out there this morning because you would have been all done drains are definitely a tropical in that regard. But I'm going to let it adjust and by a judgment. Meaning even though it was in slightly limited light outdoors. It'll be significantly limited light indoors because of the the length of day where I have it. I don't have special lights or anything like that. So it will lose. Some leaves. And especially probably the most prime looking big fat leaves will be the ones that just simply dry up and go away, given oh call it two three weeks of allowing it to adjust to it circus new circumstances. And we'll have cut back on the watering are certainly going to keep it alive. But in that is not expected to grow much at this point on through winter. It will be well kept alive that that's the best way to put it enough moisture that when you lay the knuckles of your hand upside down or backs topside on the soil. You feel a hint of moisture that's as wet as you want it to be then given that three or so weeks, I will cut the daylights out of it now in a greenhouse this is part of the propagation process for the cutting grown types. They will cut off the new stems root them in warm sand warm moist sand and then make new plants out. I'm. I'm simply going to get rid of those tips. This plant is pretty humble in the first place, but I'm going to hope that by Christmas time given that being roughly six or so weeks that it will start to grow again minimally at that point. I will start turning it. Well, like, I told Jade plant a third of a turn each week, given I water plants on Sunday. So I'll be turning it on Sunday. And I'll try to re-grow it and by spring. I'm hoping for it to be in flower, bud. If not already in flower, it is just it's something I'm doing a challenge it will be far less. Trouble far more convenient to simply go buy another one. But I like the pink of its color hybrids, go to try and the bucket is at least the most interesting contain. Hey, thanks again. For listening to our podcast. Be sure.

Why Few Survive a Climb Up Alaska's Frigid Denali
"This is one of the most unique landing strips in the world. A blanket of snow on top of shifting crevasses. The only way to land here we used to do it on special retractable skis. That flip out underneath the tires. But even with the special gear glacier landings can be treacherous in this all white landscape even experienced pilots can lose a sense of how high they are off the snow but David landed here. Hundreds of times touches down smoothly with his passengers safe inside her now comes the most dangerous part of their journey. Getting to the top of Mount Mckinley from base camp. The summit is another thirteen thousand vertical feet. Were to have miles higher. Each climber has to carry two three weeks of supplies. They tackle the mountain in small groups all tied together for safety. If one falls into a crevasse the others can help pull him or her out but one day before this footage was shot in twenty twelve a team of five. Japanese climbers was swept away a large avalanche here on the West Buttress route. Only one of them survived managing to pull himself more than sixty feet out of a crevasse alone badly frostbitten. Even after a thorough search the bodies of his four friends were never filed for most climbers. The greatest threat isn't avalanches but frigid weather. Denali is one of the coldest mountains on earth since it lies so close to the Arctic circle temperatures plunge to minus one hundred degrees Fahrenheit and winter at minus forty in summer fast moving storms could get it any time backing a lethal mix of snow ice and winds exceeding one hundred miles per hour. Climbing parties are often pinned down for days their tents as a result. Only HALF OF THOSE. Who Attempt Finale to the summit. About hundred climbers each year. But for those few that succeed the thrill of reaching this cold snowy spot the very top of the North American continent is immense.

The Number 1 Productivity Hack To Get Things Done When Your List Is A Mile Long!
"Hey this jury and in today's podcast on talk to you about something that basically impact everybody. It doesn't matter whether you are a complete beginner or just starting out in your business and you try to figure out how everything works or your already an accomplished you know enterpreneur you have. The team are working for you. Maybe you are already in the seven bigger or eight bigger a level and so everything seems to be working for you. You know it. It doesn't really care who you are. And at which level you are. I guarantee at some point you struggle with this as well and so what I want to talk to you about. Today is obviously thrive activity. And so how do you really get more done and more accomplished in the same time that everybody else has? So how do you make more out of your day and you know? I'm not going to pretend that I have figured this out. And this is the perfect blueprint that I'm going to give you and that you know as soon as you will start this blueprint everything will change. I'm not saying that but I will. I will share with you. What works for me and what I have found to be most effective for me to move my business forward and obviously you know. I have a team as well. But this applies to meet individually right. I don't apply that to my team. I apply that to me individually because team just helps you accelerate the business It really doesn't help you to shorten your to do list because we as humans have this tendency to you know get more war to want more regardless of how much we have done all ready. And that's why you know if you are someone who is driven passionate who wants to get more out of your life. You will always have a lot to do list if you will need to tackle and so you know the number one thing that I do know there to be obviously productive. Productive is to you know. I I write everything down and the reason why I do that. I WANNA have a micro and macro level view on everything that I need to do so I really just take a piece of paper and list everything down just number one two three and I don't look at a particular order. I just write everything that is in my had. So what whatever I can think about whatever I think I need to do. You know I write that down and once I have done that then. I have two things that I really look for when I look at the to do list and does obviously the number one thing is urgent. Thanks right so is there. Is there something that if I will not do it today but I will not do it this week? Something bad is going to happen. Is there something on that list? That can hurt my business. Hurt my life On a big level that you probably know if I don't do this right now today or this week or something horrible going to happen so I look at that person. I ride that on a separate list as as the most important thing at that moment in time right but then the second thing that I look at is I look at that sort of the mid level importance or I should say that you know how something is important in the time of. Let's say two three weeks from now you know. Is there something on my list that could impact profoundly? E My business. If I would tackle that to do you know right now and would it be impacted. I would see within the next two three weeks and the reason. Why is because if you do this every single day what what will end up happening? Is that your to do list. Will mainly consist banks that are going to be important over the period of you know next two three weeks so you end up working on really important stuff that on a mid level moves your business and your life forward now when you have that list done you know the most important thing to do here is not to rush on execution and this is what a lot of people advises everybody says unique to tackle it immediately as soon as you come in the morning it soon as you're ready to start your Taco the number one thing on the list. I personally don't do that what I do instead. I take a pause. I take for example I go out for fifteen minute walk or drive to a coffee shop to grab a cup of coffee or something like that so I can get my mind out of that environment where I created that to do less right because you know. Environment consists of energy and in certain energy And so you WANNA get out of that for a moment so you can look at that from the outside right and then we done dose fifty to fifteen thirty minutes. I really assess with her. What I was thinking super urgent is really urgent. And whether it's really needs to be done this way or it can actually sacrifice that loss and instead move onto something which will impact my business after maybe three weeks or something like that and then I also look at those those higher impact Stop and think about that whether that really is that important and the most important thing I should be doing right now so call my business is going to be impacted if I will. You know Do those thanks. That will have a consequence in a period of two three weeks. So these are mine productivity hacks and You know everybody everybody can have their own. Obviously you know you will figure out how to do something. you know to accomplish thinks Based on who you are based your personality but this is what it works for me for example right now but according podcast but actually took a break. I went out to drive to a coffee shop to grab a coffee and while I was driving I was recording this podcast for you. And this is also a productivity hack. Where like it's not super important for me to put it out right now but he will have a positive impact on my business over the larger periods of time right so after some time it will have an impact on my business. Which is why I. I'm doing this right. So this is how you can start to tackle it and obviously you know it doesn't matter which level you are You you will face an issue where you have too much to do and you still need to figure out ways to focus on what's really really can move your business forward so that's it for today For the DAX insider podcast Let me know what you think by sharing that on social media or or just coming to dock necks page on facebook and share your thoughts and let let me know what you think.

056 Am I Being Ghosted? And What To Do About It?
"<music> own job seekers radio. I'm andrea gun. This production is meant to provide meaningful support to find great careers faster whether you're working or not today on job seekers radio were talking about ghosting and i don't mean ghostbusters yeah or anything of that nature now. We're talking about the paranormal so not normal but that's something else so by ghosting. We mean that radio silence you hear after hiring team has demonstrated interest in you and the role had promised we're going to move forward and it could be the company. It could be a networking contact. It could be anybody the idea that someone has expressed interest in you in in some fashion to some degree and then as you send your follow up or you're you're trying to get feedback. You don't hear anything back whenever i am asked about this. I always start with the idea that it probably has nothing to do with you. This is one of those and i know we've said this. Empire podcast is one of those things where it's hard not to wonder. What did i do wrong when most of the time name it has nothing to do with you. That's great advice scott but i did the networking. I did the application. I've been through interviews. They said they were gonna send me. An offer and heaven only knows. I have been in a position where i was. The hiring manager and something happened happened where we had to delay higher out. I had the presence of mind to let the applicant. No you know we're we're having to put this on. Hold will understand if you find another job before this one is we can move forward on it. That's the thing a lot of people get busy and they don't think about the things they don't think about in getting back to an applicant is probably one of those things they don't think about. Try not to take it personally. If there is something to learn from it. The lesson will show it is is what it is right and you don't control the internal workings of an organization that means you should go to the next one. Yes it also means. You need to take notes. What does that say about the organization. Is that something that's happening. Consistently with them is this indicator of what the future looks like for you. That's a really you want an organization where you feel like you're being valued. I been in the situation and i've talked to people when when you're unemployed. It's really hard to pick and choose if you are in a position where you need a job. It's hard not to just take whatever comes salaam to your point. If you're taking notes on how they treat the applicant the chances are pretty good. They're going to be treating their their employees the same way so if the treatment you're getting an applicant isn't what you would want to deal with on the job bear that in mind as you continue to tried to to work your way in there may be some unpleasantness involved <hes> if you actually landed the job and this cuts both ways that means if you have control control over the ghosting. You probably not do it. Thank you and if you're the company or you're the applicant doesn't matter don't goes people. I think the the easy explanation for a lack of follow up is that it's out of sight outta mind. Oh i forgot and okay. It's also just as easy when you put the appointment on your calendar to actually meet with this person at that time. Put a reminder for a week later to follow up and it's a very simple process or even schedule another meeting. I think that's valuable advice. If you're in a position where you had an interview and you are not clear on on the next step schedule something to have a follow up meeting not hey. I'll just follow up in a week. I think about this. There have been times when someone asks me what what what can we do to follow up and really. I want as the hiring manager control over that because i don't know how long it's gonna take me to get through the interviews it. I don't know exactly when the start times would be and so. I want to maintain a certain amount of control with that sad. I'm also aware that somebody very who's looking for work needs to know what the next steps are and that we follow up in a timely way so there are all sorts of excuses why i people don't follow up. Don't be that person. Don't be the one who lacks the follow up. Be sure that you're sending follow up and it is critical. If it's a position you're actually interested in that applies for the candidate. The applicant is will so if you're in hollywood and you've been given. Let's say they even said hey. I'm sending can you offer inherit is or hey. Here's an offer you accept and you don't show up for work right well. I mean these. Are that has happened to me where i hired. Someone who never showed obviously won't hire them again. Just know that the says a lot about your brand it does and do you want that brand going forward because i don't no no about your town but here in portland it's a small community you know and people will find out eventually and and you're going to rent out a references at that point. I do think that there are good reasons. Why people don't follow up but the the really good reasons are few and far between the one thing that i would do though is if you find that you've you've dropped the ball on that when you do contact the other person and let them know hey. I know i dropped the ball. I apologize. I'd like to get everything back contract by owning it. People are much more likely to give you a second chance. If you just sort of ignore the fact that you were supposed to contact them two weeks prior and hey just wanted to follow up <hes> they probably are not going to have the same in reaction. What we're suggesting here is make sure that you follow up you own it and then actually follow up. You don't want to create a series of times where you're always having to apologize as well if every conversation starts with i'm sorry there's a problem that means you know. I could list a thousand things right there too busy. They're you too lazy. They're they're themselves looking for a job right on the corporate right right or you know like a friend of mine. <hes> just was diagnosed with cancer the answer i mean we don't know who the person is on the other end of the line and and things happen that you don't control that side of it you only control your own activities. That means what you can do about it is don't make a promise it. You can't sleep and don't make an offer that you can't follow up on it. There's also the idea that you actually i think taught me years ago and how to follow up after you've made your application but follow up with other people in the organization to to try and see what the timeline looks like get a pulse on that job opening because i remember talking to someone i applied for prepositions was years ago applied for a position and it actually have been put on hold but they weren't letting anybody know the recruiter. Wasn't i happen to have a conversation with somebody else in the organization who was able to find out for me. Oh that's been put on hold. I had a completely different reaction once. I knew that now as it happens i got a job somewhere else but at least i wasn't wondering why that hasn't worked out for me that it was again completely out control and had nothing to do with me in working talking to other people in the organization you get a better idea of how things flow anyway and if you know someone who has any contact with recruiting and at some point they probably did then you're probably going to get a better idea of how things as function network end try different avenues to get information about the process and what you might learn is that in many organizations nations recruiting sits in a different function it's not in the operation all the time right and that means they operate differently than the actual actual operation that you're going to be working in. If it's anything mid size or larger company you can guarantee that. The recruiters are working somewhere else. It may be the same building may not. They are going to be filling a very different role from what's happening happening operationally. That's why we encourage you if you're not looking for jobs in h._r. Don't spend a lot of time there if you don't have to each are people will tell you that i've worked in h._r. Here for years and we're not the ones you need to be spending your time and energy on unless you're trying to get into our department okay. I'm trying to get in your your department scheduled the meeting right well. It's something like that but at least you'll be able to talk shop and you'll have an idea of what they may. Maybe going through to your point unless you're looking for a job in h._r. Don't spend a lot of your time there. Yes if that's the gatekeeper you want to build a a good relationship. That isn't where the depth needs to happen. You should really be focusing on building your relationships with people in operations about operations operations and so they see you in their operations. Trust is a number one key to getting hired in that is really the only way to develop trust is through a referral or a direct relationship and what we're suggesting is because h._r. Is a different function. It may operate differently and that means they may a. B. understaffed. There may be a lot of reasons but no excuse makes it feel better when it happens. That's true and what we i would encourage you to do is was just take another swing right. Go find another company. Remember what got you to that interview in the first place. Go do more that because you're you're gonna drive yourself. Crazy easy waiting for someone else to take action on your candidacy. I may have said this before but i generally follow the idea that you follow up the week. After an interview or initial contact i then wait two weeks for a second follow up. <hes> wait another two weeks with a third follow up and in that message say hey. I'm interested and i don't want to pester you so i oh leave the ball in your court hope to hear from you and leave it at that because if after six weeks you haven't heard from them it's time to move on it may be time to move on. It may be time to just send him on incubation schedule to follow up with the person in the operation reassure your h._r. Gatekeepers at that the the abbot of the active follow-up is really keep that short allowed that relationship to live on its own mm-hmm as best you can through your networking with the people in the industry that do what you wanna do not about the job itself and don't stop looking until tell the day you start work. I agree my to someone can promise you an offer that doesn't mean you're going to get one. I've known people who are given an offer they accept the offer and then something happens to end the job was discontinued so they never got hired and so they never started right. Never stop looking until the day you start work and this is coming from a lot of experience on this site of the microphone right is i've seen it more than once where someone they're in a search. They went through all the interviews they got the promise of of an actual offer and say what my job's done and they stopped looking. The offer never came in. They were two two three weeks down the road. Hey where's my offer right. Sorry it's not common and now i'm starting from zero. I have no other opportunities -tunities in the pipeline. I echo your advice. Don't stop looking until your first day on the job if you're to look at that kind of idea this relates a lot to what we talk about in terms of mindset and the mindset is. I'm not stopping until i'm never stopped looking. I'm always gonna network. You're right. It's keeping that rhythm rhythm that cadences going even though hey i've got the job and i started working. I'm not gonna stop. I'm gonna start this process over again with a little more deliberate approach coach proactive whenever that looks like right something that says okay. You know what i do believe in fairy tales okay. Every story has a happy ending. What's your mindset. Is that okay. I'm going to go look for the next happy ending highly. That's a great idea the wherever you thought you know so you said earlier imagined right imagine agean what it would be like right and if that happened what would that mean for you right. You started thinking about that for yourself. Ultimately i've known of several people well who couldn't find their happy he so they created their own and they went into business for themselves. Now that's not necessarily for everybody that also is an option and and when i've been on that fine edge where you do the consulting work and people don't wanna hire a consultant because they don't want your time and attention drawn away from there were but at the same time i will never stop doing what i love doing a you can either employ me full-time and i'll devote myself to it or if you're not going to engage me then that's fine. I'll do what you need me to but i'm going to continue to do the things that i love and it can be a hobby for now. What what else side-hustle would have you know contracting a freelance thing on the side. How common is the gig economy now. Many of us have second secondary and dairy of of course we can go into a whole podcast dark side gig but the the idea here is that ghosting happens yes but it's not your problem. It's it's the company's problem and they need to do something about it. If you talked to any forward thinking h._r. Leader he's going to tell you we would never operate that way and that's how you know that you have a good h._r. Department is how do they treat their candidates because they recognize that the candidate is also possibly a customer car or also is gonna carry that into the future and with things like glass door. They can't afford that. That's another podcast that we can do but i really don't don't be the ghost and don't take it personally when you're ghosted that does it for this episode of job seekers radio you can get all the show notes and resources in the link down down below or at job seekers radio dot com forward slash zero five six while you're there.

The Traders Journey - Inactivity
"Today's episode is proudly brought to you by try to cops the double bay dot com. Join up for the free biweekly video newsletter with myself my table, keep you up to date on the moves that are in this crypto market now if you want to learn how to make money with the market goes up or down go to try to call dot com. Now. Vitrey to Cobb crypto show talking business influx. Jane? Welcome to try and go crypto shirts at day is one of those wonderful episode that is titled the trade is Jannie and tonight is about inactivity. And the reason I bring this up is because recently, we have seen a lot of inactivity across the top ten now if I talked to you right now about what has been the last wall couple of weeks even throughout the entire start of two thousand and nine thousand nine it's got to be spoken that the be haven't seen a huge amount of activity that want to talk about activity. I'm talking about trends, I'm talking about tradeable markets, and as you are all very privy to. I am a trend trade up. And when I don't have good trends will naturally I don't have good setups. All good trays, which means you got two choices you can sit out and do nothing all you can trade within the chop and more than likely give money back to the market. Now a couple of things. Come up when I bring this subject to mind two things. The first thing is that you can basically trae within that chop and more times than not you'll give money back. Now, the issue with this is to size of thinking about one is often paid we'll think of how to good November December November and December trading strategies that I'd trade, and if you've learnt and going through my causes those a really fantastic trays December was very quiet up until roughly about the that should not roughly the date was the nineteenth of December. And across the top team. We saw theory. I oughta minero and bitcoin amongst others outside the tops in setting up for wonderful for crypto cradle trades that had basically perfect security and really good opportunities. Now, those trays ran on very very well. I oughta against the US dollar was the one I took and did very well from that. Now it turned out. I should look some narrows it turned out that because of those trades relatively taught. Stop losses are either risk was well the entering stop with quite taught. So therefore, the risk was the same dollar amount. But a tot little entering stock meant the move if it was further or bigger or longer or larger. However, you wanna put it it meant lodger prophets. And of course, what happened was it did move very very well. The thing is we'd November being a good mother November was more or less a really good month based more. So on the bitcoin short from fifty seven hundred and did document that. The rest of the month apart from that bitcoin trade was relatively quad. But that was seventeen to one reward re-stripe. So naturally, it was a really Rudy NAS reward that being said we went into December the very little through December until that nineteenth. And then did very well coming into the end of the year moving through into the beginning of the next year. I'm more or less didn't do a great deal because I took a few days off. I didn't watch the market did whatever I wanted. I stood back to a certain extent. I still do the scan. But that wasn't a great deal that it'd be to that then rounds through into the early stages of January for about the seventh on, and that's what I went and had a holiday up in a one of a part of the world with my family, friends and had a great time. Now as much as I was still scanning doing my scans. And watching the market. There was very little actually came about one trader have had in two thousand and nine thousand nine was lot coined bitcoin absolutely amazing setup on the daily, and it was actually a stop out. So I lost money on that trait. I'd s-. Still take it any day of the week. And I'm very proud of it tried a really will whited why should for long time for that. And a great trading day chestnuts. My first target by about point Nana sat. So again, the first two trades more year, I was looking at two trays to be sort of cities to white to see if I could get my either in after taking a break watched a couple I watched in Washington watchdog within two three weeks of watching our disorder does going to take a train had. I back him as I am. Now back in Sydney in my office looking at these charts and trading as if it was the middle of the year. I'm now looking at these markets, and I say very very little going on with bitcoin, for example. Yes. Today's twenty four hour candle. It basically stayed within a range of one hundred dollars very very small. We are not seeing and this will come out days out of this. But my point is we're not seeing really big moves right now a want to see what the market does. I'm happy to sit back and be in active. If you are. Thinking you've done. Well, and you're going to have a at this. And the that what it does is it sends the wrong message to your head trading is about psychology. It's about speaking to different parts of your brain. Now, we think that we operate ourselves on a level playing field that we always make her own decisions. But it's actually your sub conscious that is being fed information and signals your whole life that really rules your conscious mind. So therefore as trade is being that if you've been in it for a long time or a little bit of time if you'll relatively new I'm talking five years or less you've not trained you'll Brian enough yet subconsciously to make those decisions. So naturally, it's much more difficult to not take trades through. Periods of inactivity for me. I don't mind unhappy with on fine with it because I've done this for long enough. And I know as bizarre as this sounds doing nothing is often with money is made in those periods of time. So what I'm saying to you is this goes you're going to face periods. Where it feels really differ. To not take trades. It feels very very hard to sit out and do nothing. But these are the moments that really decide your future going forward because when times are good way prophet when times and not we sit out. That's what professional tried is do others. They trade the same all the way through and what I see through mentoring his people that will take great trades in great trends and do very well. But they'll also take terrible trades in crappy trends because they feel like they need to do something. So, ladies and gentlemen, in activity is your friend. Let this be a test for you let this be a lesson. Let this be something that you learn from because if you don't learn how to do nothing and being active. Well, you don't really have a future hit the SUNY work that at the better off you're going to be the fantastic day speech is very very soon. Bye for now.

they're in towns and cities in tokyo we can relate to them more for i'm so shot the mix of because usually don't mix fantasy in urban is using not a good mix i i read i read fantasy urban books and they're really cool but you really don't get that you when you think fantasy you think of woods in ills and people skipping through like long passages and caves and dundas you'd think that but now you got into real world with cities in subways he's an in basically all the same stuff in fantasy but but modernize into this CD urban platform and like people can relate to it more especially the younger

"This is the sporting life on ESPN radio and the ESPN app here's jeremy schaap last here at the winter olympics donna shing thing happened when north and south korea had one women's ice hockey team in the tournament app and you can listen to new editions of the sporting life every saturday and sunday morning on e._s._p._n. radio and e._s._p._n. app beginning at six a._m. eastern time with each other that remarkable union that remarkable confluence of events is the subject of a new book by seth berkman a team of their own how an internet we're speaking with seth berkman about his new book team of their own how international sisterhood made olympic history about the joint team in women's ice hockey title sisterhood made olympic history and seth berkman joins us now set thank you for being with us thank you for having me jeremy i mean it was one of those things where the north korean south korea of fielded at the winter olympics last year in south korea so how did it happen how how how asian thaws which give usually it seems false hope how extraordinary was this it was very extraordinary did this sports diplomacy get fashioned actually kind of started months before so in the summer of two thousand seventeen kind of angry about it just because you know they had been training for four plus years for this moment and then all of a sudden they're being told south of the hermit kingdom the the the enduring enmity between north and south with just the very south korea named a new minister for colts archer co culture arts and sport and kind of just very randomly throughout remember i was actually with the team they have training camps in minnesota every few months and so they had just left their final training camp before the olympics this was about two three weeks before the games are going to start and i had just gotten home that weekend i remember scrolling through the new york times casually and seeing the note saying that has been agreed upon the unified team is going to happen and that was kind of like wait what like how when and then talking with can you might just add these kinds of north korean players your team just a couple of months before the games eventually the president of south korea moon jae-in supported the idea you saying to yourself how can this possibly happen you know we're we're you know we're accustomed to stories about kidnappings perpetrated by the north against national airport which is the main airport around seoul and so they're getting their baggage and kind of working on their phones waiting for baggage that come through and they're just getting kind of has kind of things happen in south korea when it comes to north korea relations it just kinda petered out and you know these flames of hope just kind of you know the players on the team later on they were in flight heading back to south korea as the news happens so they didn't know really until they landed that gets in sean internet then saying that this is going to happen so you can only imagine what their reactions were just kind of all of a sudden being thrown into kind of its geopolitical statement your people from the and the IHS which is the international ice hockey federation also kind of backing it so it started to build some momentum but press conference one day oh it would be nice in the upcoming olympics north korea south korea could build a unified team perhaps in women's ice hockey and made olympic history the fact that this did in fact happen that this team played at the he's very high on the korean peninsula and when kim jong un kinda offices olive branch the south korean government people around the olympic committee you're saying hey may you know relatively big news in south korea the time because no one has ever really kind of thought of this and the players coaches hadn't heard anything so they were really taken aback and they were really always with north korea but then new year's eve new year's day i should say two thousand eighteen kim jong un goes on state run north korean television and really surprises way and so all korean government and kind of their effort and wanting to kind of improve relations with north korean any kind of way because you have to remember it is time the months before north korea's doing these missile launches can his kind of rhetoric with donald trump is at an all time high so tensions are definitely uh i guess you could say against it and those those seem to tend more towards a very younger generation kind of twenties thirties world 'cause he says i think it would be a great thing if north korean athletes compete in the upcoming winter let's switch by that winter only about five weeks brought up earlier which is the women's hockey team speakers seth berkman about his new book is fascinating new book team of their own how international sisterhood talker say this covers the whole gamut of people but it can kind of very broadly be broken up into two camps obviously those in favor of unification and those who are kind of did that lead to very interesting because i think even south korean government themselves weren't ready for the kind of response and towards unification in general aren't as strong but then you do have a much older generation who grew up around the korean war they remember how did this unified team perform when it comes to actual performance on the ice the team ended up losing all of their olympic games so koreans who haven't grown up with any kind of real attachment to north korea and just know north korea kind of as antagonistic neighbor their feelings ever got invited to a point of any real meaning and so talk died down over the summer and a lot of the team thought okay it's going to just kind of nothing's going to happen just like at the olympics of course in two thousand eighteen in south korea with north korean and south koreans on the team what kind of hopes and expectations visiting north korea having family members from north korea when korea was still just one country so this idea of unification still means very much to them let's see how we can take advantage of so the wheels in motion very quickly to try and see let's see how we can get three napoli's over here and kind of the first choice was the awhile it did make a very big kind of geopolitical statement one thing that happened was by adding twelve north korean players the team two weeks before the olympics in a way playing well they played a lot of college teams in NCW division one teams wisconsin minnesota those teams and they were able to give you know teams with protesters for both sides kind of you know just shouting rhetoric back and forth towards each other and so it definitely polarized people i do think you kind of brought down the quality level of play even entering the game south korea was ranked about eighteen in the world so for them expected to win a game and and european powers north american powers of the sport would have been they would have had to play kind of the perfect game i do think leading up to the olympics they were potential that they could compete with the world's best but once north korean players team in the iot mandated that at least remorse three players had to dress for each games perhaps though the government was not expecting as much of a backlash low towards kind of this idea of the unified team at happened are or is it a one off that has no consequence right now sensually that's a really great question and i think there's levels our own and this gesture this symbolic gesture which seems to embody what the olympic spirit is all about how did the iot and so you did have conflicting sides and very strong arguments for both there were protests off throughout seoul in korea leading up to the olympics every two and every four years where it does bring out just a certain kind of inspiration you do see athletes performing amazing fees that can inspire z.
How Can I Get My Hollies to Grow Out Instead of Upright?
"This plant talk podcast is brought to you by stoke seeds for the best selection of vegetable, flower and herbs seeds available go to stoke seeds dot COM cultivating successful growers for generation. As we mentioned. We've got a lot of emails this weekend. one of them came from Teri and Terry says I have to holly seedlings courtesy, if a bird there about twenty four inches high, but they're growing straight up. How can I get them to grow wider well quite easily in at the same time? Need to maybe express some thoughts. Holidays are of mankind's, and there's the American, which is indeed essentially a tall tree over a period of time. Then there are down into what I'M GONNA call the yard and garden size the blue. Jays which are a special strain that have been. Bred and selected, and so on You well. There are other names, but let's just say the blue princess which you can have in numbers along with one male blue prints. They are the kind that it's going to be easy to keep make spread, and that is because when you take the tip off of those twenty four inch seedlings, or go down from the tip, maybe a couple of leaf. In well, let's just say step down two or three leaves from the top. You're going to cause a change in the energy level in the site buds. The dominant bud is the one in the center of that tall stand. And when you take it out, you have unmasked the the religious girl out of the tree. When you take it out, the lead will break into the side buds, the stem lower, when and even if you love this morning and indeed pinch that top out or cut it out, you would funny was. killed. It's done it beyond. It'll be two three weeks before you start to see the side buds open up. They will then grow on out and more sideways. Now one or more of the May try to go straight up again for the next year. You would do the same thing you would take the tip out of it. That causes the plant then to to branch out lower and less less tree, like so without knowing, and and it would be impossible to determine which holly it is. I'm going to assume that most of the time here in. Central area, we're going to be finding holly seedlings that are of a more shrub like type so all he really has to do. Is Go out and pinch house to tip bud or bud down couple three twenty four inches, and I don't know where some new growth or not, but I'm a twenty four inch tall plant in particular down to eighteen inches. I wouldn't go below that maybe not even quite that far, but as soon as you take that dominant. Genetic tendency out of the top of the plant. Break Top. You're going to unmask those side buds, and while off, the plant will be shorter fatter and. We'll more amenable to a home site at this point from this point on can thank the birds for the gift. Yes. I. It's a matter of fact. Yeah, let's let's go on a little further on that. As Holidays holiday, most holidays in our area need help from acid fertilizer. holidays are. More Amenable to rolling in an acidic soil, very where loose and Loamy, and so on now if his germinated, that's a very good sign and I would simply say that without pushing at this point in time by pushing. I would not put on excessive amounts of fertilizer. Use in well. My choice would be to use a water soluble and I'm going to simply name a product miracle I'm sorry Mir acid in this case usually it's recommended at around tablespoon per gallon of water on twenty four, each seedlings, one gallon for each some well right after this president, rain and Former rain. Drained away so you don't have a chance of drowning the plant. Give it one bucket, each or one one gallon each I should say and. It don't pour it onto fast. You don't want running out to the side. You want down around the seething, and that will more or less that with pinching, Lauren, loss assure you of a plant coming on, and doing hopefully great things now we have to hope that one's a boy and one's girl because you will not get. Female flowers on a male plant period. It just doesn't happen so Don't worry about that at this point in time, hope that your luck continues in terms of having to always and then if it happens to be both girls, no boy available, you can go buy talk.

Let's Tom Days episode ladies and gentlemen, welcome to another podcast episode. My name's Bev. You're listening to Bev's world. And today we're going to talk about the coronavirus and wage. It's approximately 10:30 here Swedish time GMT plus one and my neighbors are sleeping. So I got to be a bit quiet but I thought the reason why we're talking about the coronavirus today and why we're talking about it today is it's because it's the 11th of March which means that approximately a couple hours ago the World Health Organization just announced that the coronavirus has become a pandemic and I have a funny story. I want to tell it's not about well, it's I'll tell you in just a bit. I think you'll like it you lunch break in but let's talk a little bit about what the difference of an epidemic and a pandemic is so as you probably know if you've been following this, I don't know if you've The following this since December or January at personally, I started getting a little bit into this in the beginning of January before kind of the hype started and that's not to brag. Oh, I was before everybody. No, no. No, it was just that me and a couple of guys at work. We we saw something that was very different from different viruses that have you know that have been around because every year every second or third year. There's always a new virus that comes right out or something different about this one and it was a little bit of a hush-hush situation. We also got to know that the government or the governor. I think it was dead The Man In Charge in the city of Wuhan, which is the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak. He got suspended and kicked off of his robe. and the reason for it was because he was too slow to Make this make this a big deal, but he was too slow when it came to alerting the Nation about the seriousness of the coronavirus or covid-19. Whatever. So what we realized then somebody came out with his news, you know in big news organizations weren't talking about it then but what this this news Outlet talked about is this underground news Outlet or if it was a YouTube video. I can't remember but what they said was that the governor or the man in charge and Wuhan got kicked because he was too slow to raise. They you learnt level of the coronavirus and he was too slow to close the borders. To Wuhan right as in a quarantine quarantines a mandatory time where you have to pretty much dead become an introvert go inside or in or if you're travelling you have to you're pretty much stuck. You can't leave. I think you know, what a quarantine is. It's a bit it's super simple to explain but at the same time it's quite difficult to explain but quarantine. How do we sum it up? It's a yeah, it's just a couple of days. It can be a days to weeks where you have to stay put in a specific location. I think that's a good way to explain it. But so he was too late. So guess how many people actually just left Wuhan five million people. left Wuhan before the quarantined as in mandatory quarantine where nobody could leave or come in or leave you on due to the virus so that it wouldn't spread and now the crazy thing about this is that 5 million people that means that the crazy thing was when we heard this mean the boys we were like, this is insane. This is different. This is not something that just happens like that. So we kind of open her eyes on like, you know, we should keep an eye on this and the funny story comes soon. But so I'm just trying to decide how I explain this particular. Yeah, so he he he got suspended right said that like twenty times. But can you imagine the crazy part of five million people left Wuhan? It was during Chinese New Year's right when all of this happened. So there's a lot of people that are traveling internationally, right? So five million people that are potentially hosts of the virus or covid-19 and they're going all over the world. Now, how do you stop dead? You can't and so as I said, we kept an eye on this and then all of a sudden I was looking around on the internet and you know me, I I love em, you know looking for investment opportunities and I think that there's a as you guys know, I think the market is overvalued right now and I made a YouTube video about how I personally think the 2020s the year one the market is going to crash can go check that out on beds World on YouTube anyways So so I talked to my friends. I was like guys there's a manufacturing company called Alpha Pro. They create hazmat suits and P called PPE plastic protective equipment. Right? Like the face masks for companies and Distributors, you know, so they manufacturers this and downloads and I was like, wait a minute. They're only valued at $5 right now per share. So I told my friends had two two guys at work and were like, oh, all right. Well, we'll just throw in, you know, three thousand kroners each, you know, it's not much. I think one of my friends put in five thousand, but we put it in and we waited for a couple weeks and it kept going down and kept going down and came up again and then it went down again to like 4:49 and 4 a.m. Already and he kept you know sinking so in my mind, I was like dang. I have a feeling that this is going to go up but the World Health Organization has to call this app endemic odd before this is going to you know launch and they refused to do and a lot of people have been really pissed off or mad at the this is this his name she'd roast teodros something like that. That's the head of or the head communication officer at World Health the World Health Organization the guy in the middle that always talks and gives the information about if it's you know, the risk level and stuff like that. And so they refused to come out with this and people were going crazy and I was like, it's been a couple of weeks now, you know, it was like two three weeks so I felt responsible. For my friends that have invested and I was like, oh, I can't let this, you know, keep going down and you know that day it was up again. So we went out plus minus right off. Our initial plan was to at least wait for their shareholder leader meeting that would be 3rd of March just to see you know, you know, it could possibly pop by that time right but we decided to to exit right cuz price was back up at the area where we got in so, you know didn't make any huge losses. You know, what happens the next day wage goes from $5. Okay. Just imagine we've been in the stock for three weeks approximately and all of a sudden It pops the day after we exit it pops from $5 to I think $12 then $15 and that week it reached out. How much was it 40. $39 per share $39 per share. No, did it hurt? Yeah, did her like crazy? Yeah wage. I regret exiting. Yeah, because I mean a lot of money it would have been a lot of money and I I kind of feel stupid for exiting the day before it pops. But now, you know, it's back down to I think $11 or something which is like it sounds like nothing compared to where it off but it would have still been a double of our Capital that we put it in. So yeah, that's like in I don't know if this is just quick head head mats, but like an eight hundred percent wage increase So and then you know my friend he was like guys what if what if we put in a hundred thousand, you know, I mean how how low could it go? You know, it's it's not that riskier. I'm like, yeah, it's actually kind of risky, you know, these kind of like smaller type stocks. They they can be very volatile where he don't know where it's going to go, right? So yeah, that's it's it's a little fun song If You're Laughing Now at me screw you all right. That was just a quick story. I just came home from work. I just wanted to stop by and if this story made your day, then I'll make my day by following this on whatever podcast platform you're listening to this on and I appreciate it. I wish you a great day and stay tuned for the next episode can cover the coronavirus a bit more. All right. Take care of it by.
Dont Wait to Lien. How the Coronavirus is Impacting Lien and Bond Claim Deadlines
"Hello everybody this is Alex. Barth that with a lean zone DOT com. Today were talking to a fellow attorney in my office. Nick Fernandez how you doing today Nick. Pretty Good Yourself Alex. Good so you're at home. I'm at home Following the CDC guidelines right that we need to keep our distance from one another. They Save Azza. How's IT being Corentin? Honestly business as usual going out to the balcony to get some sun or something. That's about it. Yeah I know. That'd be like on the occasional run which I think is still allowed right under the Miami Dade County Order. Yeah exercising or you can do that. Just needs to stay six feet away from anybody else right exactly so. Let's get right into a nick. We're going to talk today about why it's important to lean early Because we've run into some issues actually in our office right where people waiting a little too long to be nice has resulted in problems. So tell us a little bit about some of the best ways a company can try to collect some of their debts right so to collect the dead. You have many options available to you To do that you can obviously go out to your customer. You can record leans which is a claim on the property itself against the owner or you can make a bond claim if there is a bond Posted for your project. So in addition to doing that you can utilize demand letters lawsuits. Are you name it to to move forward on those rights now? What about the idea that you know? People are a little conscious much more conscious now than they. They may have been in the past about wanting to take too aggressive and approach. What are your thoughts on that? Well all companies are feeling the backlash that the virus has has imposed on the economy so as business slows down. It's conceivable that some of your customers may be unable to pay their accounts as quickly as they previously would. And I'm going to interrupt your nick. I would tell you that. Even if they are there are many that are able currently but because cash is so precious there people that are slowing down their payments as well. So it's not that not all of them can just sometimes they just want to just hold that money a little tighter So what are some of the ways that Were handling that. You're handling that for our clients so we are negotiating their forbearance or installment for the payments that are due and we're doing that in two ways And when I say two ways because what what truly matters is keeping in. Mind the deadlines that you cannot get around. So when you're dealing with leans bombs you have to make that initial claim within ninety days of your last date of work so customers who only need Thirty sixty additional days to pay off their statements of accounts that's acceptable and that's how you can still settle a claim without having to preserve your rights via leaner bond claim but for those customers of our clients that we find need more than ninety days to pay off their statements of accounts were advising that look or advising our clients to communicate to customers and and quite frankly for them. Don't be alarmed by us. Making a bond claim or BIOS recording laying on the project. Just know that all we're doing try preserve our rights. We have approximately one year from making that initial leaner bond claim trucks. You file a lawsuit. So as long as the customers able to become current on that statement of account prior to that one year mark then businesses as usual. And the Party's able to resolve their claims without having to necessitate litigation right so there's a way to be nice but firm is what you're saying right protect your rights do it nicely but recognize that you have your own business to protect and you need to get paid in order to keep paying your employees in pay your own obligations rant insurance right exactly covering yourself is most important during these times. Because that's what you WanNa do but also working with your customers may leave a lasting impact that will maintain that business relationship in the future right. Because you're always trying to balance the I need to get my money now with. I don't want to burn a bridge in the future exactly so to other things to keep in mind right that we do sometimes One piece of advice that I give clients is if you're going to give someone a discount in order to induce payment. Make sure that when you when you do that you condition the the discount on payment by dates Burton so we see sometimes clients with. They'll give a discount and as a result Thinking that it was conditioned on payment. 'cause that's what they may have said but then they never get the payment but they've already issued a credit memo or a discount so if you're going to give credit make sure you say. I will reduce your balance from eighteen thousand to fifteen thousand so long as I get the fifteen thousand by June. I the other thing is payment plans. Why don't you tell us a little bit about payment plans? Which is I guess. You could also call it a note right. Tell us there. There's a benefit to doing that. So there's a benefit to doing it as long as you have it in writing. I mean it's very important that that you note that so the parties all understand the terms. They're they're now agreeing to but the benefit in that is that you can avoid a certain costs that would come with enforcing your rights via litigation. So by doing that you still get the same end result sooner rather than later without having to sort of nickel and dime your clients for something they may have otherwise. Been able to pay you upfront right as well even if you have to liquidate litigating against a payment plan with the proper terms in it of course such as the right to recover fees then. Y-you Which again is very similar to a note. It just makes the case much easier. It eliminates if drafted correctly the claim that will the materials were late or your work was no good. You know you can take a lot of a lot out of that. A lot of that out of the equation if you structure your payment plan correctly. Right corrected eliminates data certainty so When is the best time to lean nowadays? Now that we're running into this These situations should I wait till the last minute. So that's an interesting question. And the reason being is with all the social distancing. They have closed the clerk's offices where you can go in person to record a claim of lean so Is the is the clerk closed? The clerk is not closed. The clerk is still available via electronic. Submissions issue is with those eletronic. Submissions cannot guarantee. That'll be done the same day as if you had walked into the clerk's office so for that reason you need move sooner rather than later. Insecure in your lane writes by Submitting the claim of lean recording earlier than normally would've because allowing ten plus business days for recorder's Office to get you claim of lean is ideal. Because fortunately there's no wage bring yourself to the front of the line does no extra fee you can pay to give your lean priority status it. You just fall in line with everybody else. It's in this day and age when when you would We're from your phone. You can order groceries or a pizza delivered in minutes if not an hour. One would assume that if I'm recording my lean electronially. I'm going to get it done right away. But that's not the case right not at all. It's it's unfortunately if if that's what you think you'd be wrong. What seems to What actually happens is that the people the public officials that currently work at the clerk's office still have to do it manually. The difference is instead of it coming in because you're waiting in line is coming in through this electronic Q. Right exactly yeah and as we have found out Or I should say we told our clients. There's no way to jump around in that queue wherever you are. That's what you're going to have to wait. Why don't you tell us a little bit about the situation? We had recently with a client that had a lean that we were able to overcome But they waited to the last minute which made it harder so it was very difficult. Because had that recorder's Office Been Open. We would have been able to go in person to record it and then we did. We tried and there was a police officer out front. Didn't allow anybody to go inside so instead what we did is we submitted that lean together with David stating look. We try recording on this day prevented from doing so instead. Here's what we're doing. A to attempt to fulfil lean obligation by timely recording. However no guarantees are made because we are walking uncharted. Uncharted WATT upstart. Were navigating through uncharted. Waters here so for that reason you know the the best way to go about. This is to use ample time recording your lanes rather than waiting to the last minute and now you know having this. David certified that we timely submitted online which we are inserted whether the will be recorded on. Because what's important to understand. Is that your Lena. Smart with the date that the recorder that the clerk stamps it not the date submitted to the clerk's website. So what we're telling our clients is when you get to a bad day sixty from your last work. You really should be starting the process of moving forward with your lean. You should not be waiting Past about the sixty to to to do it and you get into very dangerous territory when you get into day you know anything past day eighty Because don't forget it has to be prepared. It has to be reviewed it has to be signed to notarize and then the original or copy will be the old days a week ago. The original could be taken to the office nowadays. You gotta scan of color copy and submitted to the Q. And some counties are a week two three weeks so yeah. Don't don't delay. Let's end nick by talking about Last work you know. I saw the recession people hoping that the well the job is going to start next week. It'll be the week after notably the week. After and they've demobilized they've delivered their materials or not working on the site and then it never came back and therefore they lost their lean rights. Is that a concern. We have in this economy. Yeah the the ongoing concern. This economy is that there is the interruption of construction projects and arising from the interruption of those construction projects. You don't know when your next date of work will be slim Most conservative approaches to consider the last eight. You were on your job as the last date of work meeting. You need to begin tracking your lean deadlines from the last day. You touched that project and counting ninety days from that date because if the project's don't open up and you did have more work to do. You don't have the ability to argue while I hadn't completed my scope of work. That's not an argument. That's viable to vile argument. Is what was your last date of work. And did you make a claim of lean within ninety days of the last eight to preserve your rights? Give that answer is no that you have forgotten the opportunity to to make your lean claims so we want our clients to be as conservative as possible in in being sure that they understand that the last date of performance of labor the last date of delivery of materials or the last eight that for example. If you're a rental equipment company the last year it was available for use on. That project should be considered your last date for the foreseeable future and union begin counting that lean deadline from that allows date. Even though you do have the hopes that the project will open up again in that business will be as usual. Yeah because if it doesn't you'll have lost your lane writes in Let me let me end with a few final comments. Remember last work does not include punchless or warranty work so those days even though you may have done work if it was punchless warranty work. Those don't count towards your last. Ninety days is ninety calendar days including every weekend and legal holiday through the ninety days. You Start Day one on the day after your last day at work. So today's the last day I did work than day. One is tomorrow. I count ninety full calendar days and the last calendar day needs to land on a week a week day That's not a legal holiday or that. The court is closed to accept the leans We have a tool. I know it's on your desk. It's on my desk. We have an APP to it's called the COW Q. Lean if you want to send us an email. We'll send you one for free. So you can calculate the lean and bond deadlines All on your own The last thing I'll I'll end with. Nick is if someone had questions for you about securing their rights on a project. What's the best way to get a hold of you? The best way ahold of me is either email or phone or otherwise you can look up general construction questions on the beams on dot com Yet we'll put your phone number and email address in the in the show notes and everybody I would urge you. Don't wait to the last minute to record your lean in the last recession we saw that our clients the clients of ours that got paid. Were those the headline rights and the ones that didn't Are those that for for? Went there lean rights and as a result. You don't want to be that person that loses your lean rights and doesn't get paid so I would suggest you record early And secure your rights If you guys have any questions let us know Nick and I are happy to answer any questions. You have stay safe neck. Hopefully I'll see you in person soon by quiz.

"Hi, this is Mark news for plan. Talk radio. Thanks for subscribing and listening to our plan of the week podcast. Brought to you by Bod products family made in America, visit by dot com to find a retailer near you each week plan talkradio's, Fred Hauer focuses on a plant that would be a great addition to your landscape now for this week's Bonn, I products plant of the week. And Fred your plan to the week. Well, I'm back to the witch Hazel Mark, and it is a favorite because it is the last well almost the last full flowering plant of the season this year. It's actually running a couple two three weeks late. I don't keep exact track. But the weather we had in the early fall staying warm. The fact that we weren't getting much fall color at about the normal time all that came together in which also then all of a sudden it turns yellow and the yellow is it's very adequate. But not particularly bright like some few other plants, then when the leaves drop, and they drop in just a few days after they start to call her comes the flower, and the flower is tiny the little pedals are something in the neighborhood not much wider than sixteenth of inch. There are usually four perflubron the whole. Darn things. No bigger than the end of your finger, but wonders thousand on the plant, it becomes quite remarkable. Now, I happen to have mine, and I prefer when I get a chance to look from what I'll call the street back because a have a witch Hazel that stands well almost unto itself. But it's backed up by a blue spruce and right now, the blue spruce is well, typical of its color and the the witch Hazel is on looking from one hundred feet away at this point. And it is quite remarkable as it stands out against that blue. So it will last oh, usually two three weeks even four sometimes it used fragrant you have to kind of be down wind on a comb time to be able to pick up the fragrance or at least as a former smoker. That's that's what I have to do. But it is a plant that is a wonderful naturalized grows in the woods. It is a native not all over state of Ohio, but not on. Common. Find it what I'm gonna call mid ground. So let's talk about the lamb. And then we add to that a five foot tall vibe earn them. And then we talk about the plant of the week being oh fifteen maybe twenty feet tall depending on age, and then the big trees behind that. So it's one of those things that layers out and the time of year blooming right now full bloom, I don't know that it's ever been anymore. Full must have had darn good growing season. And good flower bud set because they're there, and it's quite remarkable. So think native think well, the the only thing you would not want to do put on a hydra hillside on a west facing slope that they don't like dry soil, not wet not in a puddle. But on the moist side as an under story plant would be. So it's just a I think quite remarkable. Then it's cousin will come along in February. And March and bloom, it's a whole different type of which as well. But. They make up a very good tree for the shadier nooks and crannies in the yard garden back in the woods, it cetera a wonderful plant just not well used. Thanks again. For listening to our podcast.

Defensive Security Podcast Episode 236
"All right. Today. We're here by will it's not so life. But from the secret Calot compound, the undisclosed secure location fill, so, yeah, we've been off the air for a little while do some interesting events. So but but we're here now and. Mr. Celts with us. So once you. Say hi, the rumors of my demise are a little exaggerated. But it was close, I guess was first of all, sorry, everybody, I disappeared. I had a. Sudden life threatening situation come up that. Caused me to end up in emergency surgery and thirty three days in the hospital and. Emergency surgery twice two times for some. Issues with basically bowel blockage in and perforations in, you know, septic shock and a whole bunch of nasty stuff that I won't bore you with. But. Pretty crazy came out of nowhere and kicked my butt, but I'm doing better now. But it was a, you know, it's, it's it was a long time in hospital in a long time to, to get to a point where I'm strong enough to even kind of do a little bit of this. Good. So it sets good good to hear from you, and good to talk to you. Is it true that they replaced all the insides with, like, PVC plumbing, the new PEX stuff that's a little better? Okay. Later. They took out the clay pipes. Got it and upgraded while they're in there. Yeah. I tell you. Going from being pretty healthy and good to go to. Completely invalid overnight has. It's really opened my eyes to. What a lot of people go through, and what a lot of how fragile life can be. But the good news is I'm I'm, I'm good. You know, I strived in in everything's on the up and up and I'm healing. I'm I'm not back to work yet. I'm not really close to hundred percent. But I'm I'm healing, and hopefully I can do more on the show, very soon. So you're, you're pretty much laid up fulltime as soon that you're just you're plotting. You're you're takeover of the world now. Right. That's, that's what you're doing plotting would indicate that I have already started. Okay. So the plans are already in place. Idle hands man. I get it. In all seriousness. You know this happened. Over two months ago. Now. But for good chunk of that. You'd be surprised how. How does it you are? Or you really can't do much. So I'm just now getting to a point where like my brain is. Clear, and I have enough energy to actually read books and do more than just stare blankly at a TV screen, so, yeah, it's, it's, it's, it's been a weird, like loss of, like two months. So, yeah, no, my world takeover plans have been a little delayed, but we'll continue. We'll get back on track. That's good to hear. So, so what have I missed? What even? Oh my goodness. And just lots of work stuff. There's been since since you. Since you took ill. I guess we'll say share. There's not been I guess a whole lot going on. Well, except for some incredible drama in, in the Infosec world. I know it's crazy. Crazy talk. Let's see who there's been a Cup few companies hacked now. The GDP are turned one year old. In the earth is still spinning. Let's see what else is has happened. Intel continues to impress Cisco continues to include hard coded credentials in their in their software. So I mean I guess it's kind of like you could probably listen to this at any particular time and it would still be timeless man still be accurate. Timeless wisdom. So how you feeling better? I'm better. I'm not a hundred percent. I'm still working on some issues. I still have another surgery ahead of me. Anywhere from three to six months from now. We're not sure exactly. One. Because right now kind of getting into a lot of detail. My innards aren't routed normally right now but they're healing. So we'll get them rerouted properly at some point in the future. But yeah, I'm I'm much better. I didn't plan for this to be my summer obviously. So you can probably hear my voice is still pretty weakened. And I get tired pretty quick. But I'm okay sound a lot better. I think visited you about. I don't know two three weeks ago and sound look a lot better. Alrighty. So, and I will say that, you know as word got out to to lot of our fans. The outpouring of support I got over. Twitter was absolutely phenomenal. And just humbling. And so inspiring and I really, really think everybody who took the time to send a note, and well wishes and it really meant a lot, as you know, in the hospital for a month with not a whole lot to do it. It really I didn't have a lot of energy to respond. Didn't have a lot of energy to be coherent in, in, in being active interacting. But I read everyone and they all meant something. So for those thank you. Thank you very much. Excellent. So like you said, we're gonna we're gonna try an experiment in the in the coming weekends. And, and see if we can start getting back on. On-track again. I'll I can't lose my spa. Man. I can only slack for so long. Right. Right. I mean inviting other people just taking full advantage of the fact that you're not getting out of the house by. I mean you would see the billboards. Secure compound looking for a replacement co host right now. Seriously, though. It's, it's great. It's great that you're on the mend. And I know you get along road ahead of you, but, you know, we're all we're all cheering for you. Thanks. I appreciate it. Yeah. I mean. Pope in six months from now will be on a percent. They say I should be able to do full recovery. And I'll be always missing some parts, and I probably won't overwork exactly the same, but I'm alive. And you know to be honest with you when all this went down. I probably was. Couple of hours away from not being. So it was close. Yeah. We're happy at worked out the way. It wouldn't have worked out that way. But we're happy that you're still here. So it's trying to come up with. You know, a lot of people like when you go through something like that. What is, you know what do you learn? What do you? I mean the best lesson I've learned is humble. Listen. And, and how fragile life can be quick change not to take things for granted. That's for sure. But, you know, life goes on thankfully, and I had some great doctors great medical team. Fortunately, you know, good a good job. That's been really understanding and good insurance which not everybody has. So, you know, I I was in a fortunate spot for this to happen. If it had to happen. And now it's just a matter of kinda putting putting these back together and getting strong again. Yes. Indeed. So have you done any, any reading the Verizon db d I can't even say that right anymore? I haven't I should. I, I'm just now, kind of back to the point where I think I can focus enough on it. So probably start catching up again, foul on all my RSS feeds and get on my new stuff back going again. So, yeah, I'll try can read all about how. Well. There was a just kind of talk shop for a little bit, right? There was an interesting. Couple of things happened almost back to back Intel rubies, or not's their vulnerability. Well, it was a coordinated disclosure. Right. Of, of the psalm be load and. Associated vulnerabilities, which are similar similar nature, but not exactly the same meltdown inspector. I think the good news is that a lot of the cloud companies where this was most prominently are going to be a problem seem like they've. Kind of caught his stride in terms of being able to handle this in, in address it quickly but kind of close on the heels of that was the blue keep. Boehner ability, which was. Affected RTP on older versions of windows, and the expectation was and still is that there may be a worm yet to come. So, you know it's, it's. People still have problems patching. I guess. Well, it's funny remember when the first sort of firmware issues by hard, coded vulnerability started showing up in, in the chips and the chips. That's, you know, we, we talked on the show and you predicted that there's likely to be more as more people started looking at that class of vulnerability and sure enough and did o with more and more worms shown up and one thing I have been following, as big debate about the ransomware attack in the city of Baltimore. Whether or not, you know, as data say tools or not, and how they were spreading, and now turns out that there might have been multiple actors or multiple methodologies and, you know, it's never simple. Yep. And, you know, here's the thing, too, is, is once somebody gets a foothold with one particular technique. There's, there's no reason they have to use the same technique to spread laterally usually easier. Once you got a foothold to us. You know, older techniques that are very effective once you're inside. So I don't know the thing that this long, concerned me and we saw it with. With not pet. Yeah. Right. The tactics. I mean, not a lot of people still seem to think that not pet propagated using the eternal blue vulnerability. But, you know, it certainly had that capability, but that's not the major way that it propagated at propagated through bed. You bed active directory in windows, credential configurations and whatnot. Which is, which is a very common tactic used by a lot of adversaries. And also, a lot of pen testers, and it occurs to me that we have a l-, I think I should say the adversaries have a lot of fertile ground for automating kind of scripting out, what would otherwise be manual type attacks. And you know, in, in from the outside these look like they're super sophisticated in the only thing that's really sophisticated is, it's not, you know, it's not a person at a keyboard trying to do each individual step on each individual system, one at a time. It's something that can be scripted out. So I you know. I think we think. Team. Blue has some challenges ahead of us. Yeah. And I think maybe the bad guys thought that if they did it manually could be better vision or staying quiet, but we're finding even scripted and even automated, they're not trip in many alarms. So, you know why, why stay quiet? Yeah. Exactly. Why make life more difficult? And also, if you're if you're. If your your intention is a ransomware attack, you know. Kind of like is almost like epidemiology, you know, there's a kind of a sweet spot of, of virus, propagation where, you know, they can't can't kill too fast. Can't kill to slow you know, there's, there's kind of an optimal window and in. So I suspect the same type of thing is, is true in the world of ransomware, but it's kind of be a lot faster than we're. Probably comfortable with. But, you know, at the end of the day their mode. Their incentive is to get as many systems infected as fast as possible. And, you know, the automation is the way to go. And I, I mentioned on a show that I recorded on my own couple of weeks ago that I. You. We forget this specific case right now but we're we're are starting to see adversarial tech adversaries. Wow. Having trouble today. Using IT automation like so the automation tools that IT departments are setting up are being compromised and used against us. And that one of the challenges is a lot of times, especially in the world of DevOps. You know, these tools are viewed as kind of lab, you know, they're, they're in a lab, and they're not, quote production. And while the one thing we know about labs is, you know, they get patched less aggressively and, you know, they don't run antivirus and he don't change password all the that the hygiene isn't as good and in, but it's, it's arguably becoming one of the systems that is. Probably the, the most sensitive and need the most protection. And that's not how it's happening because he also got direct access to so many other boxes with route or sys, admin level, privilege. All right. Well, anyhow, thank you for, for spending some time today, and we should be back, hopefully in a more normal schedule pretty soon. So keep getting better and we'll talk again soon. X-men and extra visiting the secure undisclosed location. Absolutely. All right. Take care into everybody out there. Thanks again for all your support. And hopefully we'll talk a lot more often. Bye.
005: Ambiguity Hurts with Kevin Garcia
"It makes sense yeah so are you doing cold open or is like what we're about to do I don't know maybe says the cold open our right all right let's see so should we start from the what are we doing are we starting at the top or at the I think we might as well start at the time like Kevin particularly in the Progressive Christian world because Kevin is someone that talks has if they're a normal human that enjoys life but also thinks hard and earnestly about things and often times I feel like at least experiences with Progressive Christian folks is in a university context where people are speaking really heavy and verbose and Kevin so special Kevin has this uncanny ability to take these lofty theological concepts and present them in a way that is approachable you have to have a certain vocabulary to to have any sort of input in conversation yeah I totally get that and that's what makes but the phrase enjoying life Kevin certainly would not use that phrase to describe how they grew up when I talk with Kevin Garcia about well about all sorts of different things primarily to share Kevin Story to dance on inclusion is it good bad as hurt despoilers probably hurts that's why we the Church doctrine ambiguity yes so in other words like when churches aren't clear about their policies in this case specifically toward LGBTQ inclusion on LGBTQ folks and their positions in the church in whether churches are being explicit about what new series that we have going on right so we have once again incidentally run into a series of calm an entrepreneur camp junkie adventure I just feel like it's really refreshing to come across people right and I think that that ultimately is is what the next couple episodes will lead into different perspectives coming from different voices What does it mean both to the congregation to the people who are attending and to the ministers when the church is not explicit in this we brought Kevin on the show because Kevin has some personal experience with being a part of a church that wasn't clear on Lgbtq inclusion it does positions are that are available to and the big question is like What does what does it mean to not be explicit in your policies I think that I I self identify as a spiritual director at intuitive life coach a creative a public give Kevin a space to talk about the church and who Kevin is and but primarily we talked with Kevin for this he'll lojane is something that I allowed myself to start calling myself recently and a mystic and somebody who and feeling the repercussions of that all right we'll we'll I'm ready so let's take us away nate -tations that we've had that seem to all be in line with each other and these this series is going to center on Exodus International for the following twelve years which was the largest ex gay ministry in the world An effective learned how to hate myself in suppressing sexual orientation another episode of thanks pod Nate on this episode you talked with Kevin Garcia career I did hoping for God's change however that's not a thing so at the end of that unlike twenty four years old I have become so in order to live out what Kevin had been told is this authentic version of Christianity Kevin starts working with this mission organization a turned fourteen realized I was attracted to boys was horrified because Christians don't struggle with that kind of stuff I was Kevin Garcia who is that is a great question who am I right now well right now antle ISM is real and sometimes it feels impossible and in the midst of this turmoil Kevin Attempt suicide twice six okay cool so you start with just like yeah who's Kennedy is who are you right now and then how grow up how Bella I must not want the healing bad enough I'm not want the things of God bad enough I must be the problem and the emotional physical and mental toil of overcoming but that doesn't solve anything I came home from the mission field thought that I was me like I'm like okay apparently because I'd it's not gone through like crazy college years I have done I've you know double down on my fundamentalism at this point become a missionary for God's of so sad I was I hated my life I'm working for this missions organization that I quit like because that makes is that maybe their humanity isn't at odds with God that their sexuality isn't at odds with God maybe Kevin didn't have to fundamentally change themselves in order to be the person that God created them to be get down with celibacy because like that's what I gotta do or I gotTa figure this shit because I can't keep living like this because I was here at this conservative pentecostal organization it was there where Kevin had this profound moment when they realize I woke up after the second time and I was like well still here maybe it's for a reason and I figured okay I either need to a Okay let me let me stop here and say that I love the way that Kevin Talks about the Holy Spirit this is really cool to listen to this for me now it was always trust what the Holy Spirit is saying to you and as I trust him with the Holy Spirit was saying to me kept getting this this word or this Santa and now I'm currently in the process of putting together this new project called the big adventure co where we're GONNA lead like a bunch of amazing retreats and I'm pretty thrilled about okay so I think that this is a good time to pause we'll be right back with more Kevin Story but before that we wanted to God this is what love is this is what like connecting in this particular way is so that's I impression that being gay was fine being queer was okay and not only was it okay but it was good and it was a part of me and so the more I started trusting that it was feeling like this something in my body and upwelling something and energy love that drew me to the person of Jesus and I don't know how to explain it I don't think most people know how to explain it but why is it that I can trust that feeling and all other feelings after that and the best way to help thanks upon if you liked the content that we're bringing you if you want to hear more stories like Kevin's if you want us to tackle more of these themes the last I was able to stay where I was until eventually came out and got kicked out of that organization and to Atlanta with no job and no money no so it was well it is that if you're excited about the themes and conversations that we're having on these episodes these early episodes becoming but I think that knowledge some folks call it the Holy Spirit for years after having this profound moment with the Holy Spirit after coming to terms with their sexuality today me and you would prefer not to have to type that into your search bar you can just check out the description of this episode there's a link it'll take straight there this thing is very interesting like Naza I've been doing my own healing work over the past few years learning to listen to my body and in from tell you about how you can help thanks to be deployed so we're a few episodes in now things are getting rolling and the need a patron of thanks be to pod is your best chance at submitting new content and themes for us to start talking about here that and these issues and if you want to know of the communities that the Christian communities that are getting it right then we need your help and the thanks be to pod right Patriot dot com slash thanks be to pod yeah I think an important thing to notice Yes yes you should anyway we need we need patrons to make this happen and you can check us out okay anyway back to the sense slash trauma Israel I start working for them in hopes that God is GonNa heal me if I just really am like really really sincere this time have really we are in an awesome environments with like minded people but things went sour pretty quickly searching for a church I mean like many of us Kevin Desires Fellowship and Community and friends in a place where they can belong so at the time a couple of years being with all this great stuff going on but a few years ago after coming to terms with their sexuality after acknowledging both to themselves and to the world that they are queer and the God doesn't have a problem with Kevin Kevin Searching for community that's where we're going to ask folks about what it is they want to hear about next so it is Patriot dot com slash thanks to potter but if you're lazy like I You know help national conferences on the educating people on the bill case for inclusion I've been an organizer I still do organizing here four years later I have spent my last four years telling my story in one form or another over blogs and podcasts and videos Oh when I talk about Holy Spirit when talk about hearing the Voice of God when they talk about hearing the Holy Spirit or following the Holy Spirit and I also talk about my body I for me it's like all one spaces for queer people of face to find healing and connect with chosen family and what's the other doing oh I'm writing a book that's going to be on December now so let's let's rewind a couple of years here no we're Kevin is now we know who Kevin is now is Joyce you mean that I don't want to be gay this time God I mean it and while I was there like it's like it was a very charismatic holy ghost role in place and so your help is growing ever more colby and I are not millionaires bat not by a long shot and podcasting is expensive it's not cheap hip sexy and cool like who doesn't want to be around sexy hipsters mostly white but having conversations about race it's just wrong and stupid or sinful and I remember like the first time that I kissed a boy on the mouth and I remember feeling like fireworks and lasers that's the way to do that. Kobe is through our patriotic website right which is what what where do people go patriots dot com slash thing of eating to an hungry and resting I'm tired to also dislike you know when something's writing something's wrong like it's just the various deeper inner knowledge that we have go the person that Kevin is dating is going to a church in Atlanta and by all appearances this is a place where Kevin can be themself could be openly and if you've never heard of patriotic before it is the service used by a ton of podcasters literally it's like the Renaissance when when Michael Michael Angelo was supported by Patriot yeah funny enough so When I was at adventures in missions which was the missions were missing snows working at I actually was dating a woman at the time because Ah I was trying really really hard to you know Mary women but typically I just who I am I don't typically fall in love with women because it was exactly like adventures in missions in many ways like outwardly focused you know charismatic in some ways but not over the top searching find your person you find out who's going to be doing your marital counseling all right in the first three weeks right Yep Yep so going to this church and I'm really enjoying it and the reason I'm drawn to it and if you want to lead a small group and that's what I did raise my hand and also I've been in ministry my whole life selling wipe wouldn't I want to lead a very successful and so you know I was just attending so I went through like the go meet like they had like this mixer thing for adults basically what it was the same and what what I mean by that is this is what I was feeling what brought us to Jesus right you know what Jesus and the first one gonna be able to lead some really important conversations around the LGBTQ questions so I'm over here thinking I've hit the Jackpot right of Churches Oh my God this church is on the brink of change and inclusion we need you to be our patron as we paint this beautiful Sistine Chapel Comex Peter Pot it can be a part of that and so of course like myself righteous ass is like you know totally jazzed and then like all house church and guess what thirty people showed up to my first little meeting because you know what I'm good at what I do and I also was like totally open to everyone degrees midtown they seem to be kind and you know it was a big enough church where I knew that I wouldn't have to or I wouldn't run into my former girlfriend made her uncomfortable right like a mixer for adults right where you can come in meet WHO's going to be in your new small group and former new small group and the only the only requirement for you to be a small group leader was razor I'm saying their name out loud because they set it on the Internet already so you did yeah and so I started going there she brought me there when we were the most beautiful collection people ever was a part of may really was its own little church and we're meeting at one of our pastor's house until they said hey in there and he says I'm sorry but we can't allow you to lead right now because that would be US making a statement make W church leadership making a statement that were not prepared to make three weeks things were fine and then I get pulled into a meeting okay before sorry back up before I actually started leading the small group I actually got dinner with one of the pastors I'm queer and gay like I'm here to lead you into all truth slash ruin marriage for the rest of you so I'm leading and and I just sat there a hurt his whereas like you fucking light to me banning her life together we were really like you know it's the thing that Evangelical Christians do where like the envision their entire life within the first three weeks in like you know you find your who is in charge of the house churches and I said am I ever GonNa hit a glass ceiling here told him my whole sob story the whole nine yards about how excited to find a church grace made but trying really really hard to be the good Christian tm and she went to Grace Midtown Grace Midtown is the church that I attended I don't have oh after we got kicked out he said like there is some conversations happening among the leadership and the board of elders and they voted to officially adopt the they like maybe you didn't mean to cause he even told me that he was just hoping that it was going to like float like it would just go under the radar you didn't WanNa you don't WanNa tell me no and hurt my feelings and you're just hoping that the loudest queer in the room would make any noise Oh my God yes where progressive Yeah and so when I came out and move landed water nowhere else I wanna go to church like you know hey you're no longer allowed to host the gaze at your house pastor in so he had to set down under threat of losing his job which was very very unfortunate and coffee with all of you sharing my story with all of you crying in front of you and this is what's going to happen now you're just GonNa drop this on us and the Grace Midtown family of Churches Statement on marriage and family which defined marriage as between one man and one woman however it did not further define until the day when this church adopts a policy that says that I'm not welcome fast forward two years later after me and my friends started our own small group because no one's paying attention to US anyways in with each other and seeing worship songs taking communion that's what we were doing and you're telling me that that's not okay to a pastor's house so I was just I was so few so all the guys got together and started a gala small group because we needed a space together because we needed a space to process what was happening and we called it the open table and it was you know that that was my first taste of discrimination within the walls of my own church and so and I told him that night I said you have me in what an openly queer person how they could interact with the church more how like if they could be a member or if they could participate or how they could participate or whatever I was asking all these questions and of course he didn't have any idea he just knew that this is what they were going to implement Mike so you're telling me that I've spent the last two two ish years having that I could just lied and no one knows me so you weren't actually proud of me for like stepping up as a member of this church like you weren't actually excited for me you were hoping on because I felt like I belonged Blah Blah Blah Blah and he said and I quote you are Never GonNa hit a glass ceiling here we want you to be here you are important I think like you cannot it doesn't it doesn't make sense in the reason it doesn't make sense is because it doesn't make sense it's because people are more concerned with power and keeping the status quo tweet they're quick to support it to re tweet it to share it but when it comes to actually enacting stances out on the ground now granted I didn't say that to him in the moment because I was crying but in hindsight I wish I would have because that's excellent why in my opinion so it was just it was it was mind blowing to me I'm just like the inclusion and affirmation is is that when there's a theory or doctrine or an article or a quickie that's that so my story wasn't important to you so you were listening but you weren't hearing me and it was one of those things where it's just like Korea since I get in this meeting with the lead pastor this was on my birthday no less turning twenty eight years of age and he says so and check than they are about actually living out the gospel of Jesus you know it's like it reminds me like the story I'm stuck on right now is Luke here is suffering at your hand because you won't do something so to me this is this is the hang up that I have with pastoral responses did you understand the damage that this is going to do people like how much people trust you right now and think that you love them and you're gonNa tell them actually don't think that your love is valid and we actually think that I making a terrorist welcome then like I got an email was like why did you take away our space we why did they wait we weren't doing we were literally we were reading the Bible and in two three weeks in I get called into a meeting with Mike O. Leaders a married couple so I get to this meeting and I knew what it was about from the get-go and I'm sitting Jesus healing the woman on the Sabbath the religious leaders are like Oh my God oh my God you can't he honest Abbas like that's against the rules and Jesus says Oh you guys are hypocrites you untie your donkey and lead them to water but she would not let this woman who has been bound up by saint for eighteen years be set free on the Sabbath and it's just like that meth the question is do you not see the suffering right in front of you you're going to quote a rule at me you're gonNA quote a rule that me and your sister right yes that's what blows my mind is just like you are you call me friend so any like you've prayed over me and my boyfriend come on that sinful like it was it was like a chemical as much as possible and then I just laughed I was just like you you don't even believe you see this quick decline in willingness they're willing to post online about being an ally or even preach about the need for Christians to be allies that come alongside LGBTQ plus people but when they have to defend a queer small group leader on instagram friends of ours who are openly gay posting pictures in front of them and part of the reason for that is because of that that people like Kevin get hurt by churches off guard our LGBTQ friends posting pictures of themselves in front of mega churches that are that are not affirming because Kevin would have never walked in that door I mean but it's because churches remain ambiguous on who they are because these churches are intentionally unclear about where they stand on inclusion and that's where I think a lot of people get fooled is that you know I have so one of the reasons that we wanted to talk with Kevin to share Kevin Story was specifically because of Kevin's church experience and being burned by a church that is where they could be themselves and then that that wasn't true that was never true and because of the church never had assessed this if this had been assessed from the very beginning if it had been clear from the very beginning the church had thought this through before Kevin are huge it's really really the population of Queer people is going to be smaller and so of course like you know we float by each other we don't even know what that were there friends who you know I found an entire group on meet up one time of of like LGBTQ people who go to passion city and because because like megachurches coming I mean some of them even have ties to the Southern Baptist Convention which I which I promises not an affirming organization and yet we saw this on facebook marriage and injured oh I don't know I'm like well if you don't know that's data because if a church is an outright celebrating people then they don't celebrate people they don't welcome Queer people because welcome to be welcomed as to be celebrated to be welcomed as not to just have a seat at the table other people however if you're someone like I always ask them just like would would would you get married they're like your church allow you to get married walked in that door even if they had come down on the UN affirming side I mean if they had come down on the air on affirming side then this situation would have been avoided yeah and also we've also like we're we're just happy to belong a lot of times queer people are just happy to show up and go to church and clap their hands and feel good like all the these are churches that you've probably heard of their churches with the big worship teams that produce music that like every evangelical church in the United States things but they are not unclear in their policies toward LGBTQ folks happens far too often and in the weeks leading up to this episode Kobe and I noticed something on social media that kind of really caught us oh well ovation doesn't do marriages anywhere on any campus I'm just like okay but just like would one of your pastors Mary you then you know would they affirmed like to be welcomed as to be celebrated and like the thing is like you can have a seat at the table and still be eating different meals you know what I'm saying you can still in like a lot of times just like we like or not I have been attending a church after all of the conversation that we had about whether I was going to continue good that the scraps are okay that our birthright is not the wedding feast of the lamb so I was at a church last week believe it go to a church following being a pastor and ending that time for me but I've been attending a church and Stan Mitchell was pre ourselves for years and years and LGBTQ plus folks are sitting underneath the table graciously accepting the wind sewed breadcrumbs that I mean I really liked that and then eventually you're at the table and like they feed you for a while and you're feeling good and then they start bumping you over to the edge and then eventually like you're serving and then eventually you're just standing on the edge of the room again ching and he said something to the effect of of we have been sitting at the table we being the church have been sitting at the table wining and dining I'm just happy to be in the room and you get the scraps at the end of the meal that's what it feels like is that and the people we just like we've been conditioned to think that the scraps are there's another issue at hand here and one that this podcast has attempted to address or at least talk about conservative search needs to leave its current exclusive table to joined Queer folks at their team yeah stand believes it is our duty as the church to invite or make room at our table for LGBTQ plus folks but instead the institutional a PC USA has so many brilliant minds and also has in my opinion a really good robust theology that allows for us fall from our lips he continued in win is the institutional church going to realize they've been sitting at the wrong table the whole time Zelikow spaces I mean if we're being honest they feel so much more modern than the typical progressive mainline church and feeling like you are in a space that belongs in the twenty for there to be a progressive modern church yes the there is a possibility it's just it just exists so few and far to liberate ourselves in ways that I didn't know where possible and the problem with PC USA it's mostly white so that there is that between that it's hard to imagine And it is it is a smaller part of like I feel like this is something my friend miles and I talk about a whole like I feel like there is it's okay to be attracted to a more modern space and yet the movie on spaces often are the more conservative ones so like is there a possibility places like elevation that also fall in line fall on the line of Jesus as your personal savior and it's about you and it's about it's narcissists first century I mean that's attractive to millennials and so I I put this question to Kevin in ask Kevin about worship spaces you were saying you were saying like one of the things that Kevin Point out here that that you and I have talked about is that modern worship spaces are hard to find I mean that's kind of one of the Sudarshan sustain that's true but they really they really do in some ways I think do a good job of saying we love you no matter what Dan the collectives of people like I am friends with some really wonderful people out in La Part of New Abbey Church which is a progressive historically white is just problems in general two older three I don't love Y'all Tim's I'm just going to say it all their worship music it's like worship music is influence in this world in some way because like it also pontificates your own theology in my opinion which I think most of their theology church New York City so these spaces exist what I think makes this okay this is what I think is really interesting the baffle I mean granted there's a whole subculture of Christianity that lends itself to celebrity which makes the dissemination of cultures like Bethel and Hill Song and elevation I mean people are attracted to pop music let's just be honest people are attracted to music that makes them Wanna move and so like spaces like baffled spaces like north points the point of this podcast is that all the were coming across these progressive modern spaces there's so few and far between and this raises all a- and so it's one of those things I think it can be done I think it will look different so my hope is like online they're leading the charge and it's healthy at its growing and diverse in its you know its sex positive and it's LGBTQ affirming its women empowering it's like wow that can have and then there's other places like Denver leg left-hand Church there is places like forefront I really want more churches I think like I think for for better or for worse I think that the Church win is doing its job is a really really effective each one of them it's like there's this beautiful like and there's nothing wrong with mainline denominations or lit or anything like together we all did manicures on people speed people who walk all the time and that was church and then I also you know went and and I went to Brunch afterwards announced church so for me it's like I am a big believer in lake redefining what we can do is church because I think all sorts of questions about Christian community and what the future of the Church looks like and so of course ask Kevin that to the big answer is I don't know I really wish I did I think that it can of nondenominational independent church with all the right people at the house gender and sexual
563 - What to Do With Fresh Turmeric Root
"Hello and welcome to the nutrition. Diva podcast I'm your host. Monica Ri- Nagel. Turmeric is all the rage these days its purported health benefits and most of us are familiar with turmeric as a brilliant orange powder used in Indian and southeast Asian cooking. It's one of the primary ingredients in curry powder and now lately golden milk a sort of Spicy Turmeric T. is trending in everyone's instagram. Feed from a culinary perspective. Turmeric adds a spicy warmth and a vivid huge food on the health. Front it's big claim to fame. Is The anti inflammatory properties. It's even being studied as a natural hedge against Alzheimer's Disease Ground. Turmeric has long been a staple in my spice cabinet but a few weeks ago I came across some fresh turmeric. In the produce section of my regular grocery store it looks a little bit like ginger root. Or if you're in a more ghoulish frame of mind a little bit like large insect larvae although it took me a little while and some orange stained fingers to figure out what to do with it. I am now a hardcore fan. The flavor of fresh turmeric is much different than the powder turmeric. You may be used to both have a warm pungent flavor. That's unlike any other spice I can think of. But the fresh root is brighter more aromatic and a bit less bitter than the powdered form. If you've ever had anything made with curry powder than you've had turmeric but it can be hard to separate the flavor of the turmeric from all those other strong flavors in curry. If Curry is the only place you've ever encountered turmeric. It's really fun to experience the spice on its own and experiment with other combinations. Because it's got such a strong flavour. Turmeric tends to work well with other strong spices. Try combining it with other warm spices like ginger cardamom and cinnamon or you can take it any more savory direction. By combining it with cumin coriander mustard and black pepper use these jazzy spice blends to perk up foods that are milder in flavour. Things like lentils dried beans potatoes and other root vegetables rice and other grains and yes milk after this quick. Break Off ten fun things to do with fresh turmeric along with a few tips on how to handle it. This episode of the Nutrition Diva. Podcast was brought to you by hallmark cards.
