"Again, I wrote a book, move fast, how Facebook build software. You can look it up. It was the number one book in Amazon in the category of software engineering. You don't get to number one in software engineering on Amazon by accident. It's a good book. It tells you how to write modern software and how to partner with teams and how to defend how to defend your organization. That's one of the main things I learned writing that book. Facebook was a very defensive organization in its early days. They learned to survive. And I'm kind of the same, you can try to squash me by sneaking LSD into my food or buy installing people into my company's or by putting me in difficult accounting situations or trying to take away the sponsors of software engineering daily by making me look bad. You can try to do all those things to me and I'm just going to wake up the next day and record another podcast and go shoot some hoops. I'm not going to attack you with a sword. I'm not going to burn down your house. I'm not going to. I'm not going to email your mom and pretend I'm somebody else and pretend that she needs to she needs to get additional insurance on her car I'm not going to robo dial anyone. I'm not going to invent a mechanical snake. And I'm not going to try to read your mind. I'm going to write a book about you and make you look like the criminal that you are, Facebook..

"You. Because it's a robot, big fucking deal. We could make those kinds of assassination assassination tools, but I think that engineers who wake up one day and they think maybe I should build a creepy crawly snake robot, they actually think better of it. And they're like, I'm gonna do a web app for like micro brewing. There's things that you don't do. But if you're Facebook, that list is much shorter. I want to know what Facebook has in building 8. I want to know what hardware they have. I want to know what they're doing to people. I want to know what they're doing to their employees. I want to know what it's actually like to work at Facebook. I know how Facebook builds software. But what is it like to work at Facebook? I want to know. How do they treat you? One of the best subjects on this is Antonio Garcia Martinez is chaos monkeys. It's a book that's basically about the early Facebook culture. And how rapacious they work. How soulless they were. Facebook is soulless. They're just a genderless it seems. Look at what they're doing now, a metaverse built in virtual reality. Nobody wants this. You can watch what they produced on there's an hour long video of Zuckerberg presenting the metaverse to you. It's really, really dumb. It's just a Disney movie of them presenting vaporware bullshit that they don't even have the technology to build yet. They're just like, hey, we're floating in space, playing a card game. Now we're over here doing virtual boxing. Okay, virtual boxing. You're asking me to put on an electronic headset that shoots laser beams into my eyes, just so that I can box, dude, I can box with a boxing instructor. It's cheaper than buying an Oculus. I can box with a fucking bag, like a big bag that's filled with sand. And boxing gloves. No thanks, dude. I don't need your screen to put over my eyes. I've already got eyes, man. And I've already got boxing gloves. And I've already got somebody who I like to imagine punching the shit out of. I don't need a virtual reality boxing simulation dude. I'm already smashing your fucking face in my dreams, dumb ass. Facebook is so brazenly stupid and criminal. Are they trying to be as dumb as they are? Zuckerberg. There's a lot of things you could be working on that would help people. And you go into virtual reality man, we don't we don't even have the capacity to feed most people in the world. I mean, we feed most people don't go to bed hungry. But I'm saying like, until you figure out how to feed all the hungry people, or how to fix broken legs. Forget vaccine infrastructure, man. Can you just fix people's legs faster when they break? Because I believe there's a lot of people that are poor in the world and when they get their leg broken, they just hobble around and then get permanent leg damage. Why don't you just help those people? Why don't you work on better drones? Please, man, you were working on drones for a while. Did all your drone engineers quit? Is that what happened? Did all of the good engineers leave Facebook, all of the good ideas? They're so bereft of good ideas. The only thing they know how to place a bet on is virtual reality. That's their only growth vector. They're not like Amazon. Amazon is a systematic design and creation and invention machine. That's why people like Jeff Bezos, like you walk into a room with Jeff Bezos, and he's like, hey, what's your best idea? And you're like, it's like a better way to do food trucks, like a build your own food truck thing. What if Amazon had a thing where you could just type in type in like a food truck idea and press enter and make a food truck based on that? And Jeff Bezos would be like, that's a great idea. Okay, go find the resources and build it. Hooray, talk to you later. People love Jeff Bezos. I love Jeff Bezos. I work for his company for 8 months. And I loved it. I've got a little board with my own work. I tried to do something more interesting there. I tried to start a podcast there. I tried to I wrote down two to three really, really big business ideas. And I wrote them on 6 page papers. I tried to make friends across the company. I did my best. I spent 8 months in Amazon and I got a performance improvement plan. I was going to be put on a performance improvement plan that we're going to kick me out. I was never going to last at Amazon. I do like to tell people I was an engineer there because I passed their interview process. And people loved me at Amazon. I had friends there. It just wasn't a fit for me, because that's not my style. I don't want to go and work at your 100,000 person organization. I want to go be myself. And that's what I've done. And I'm still myself. And you can serve me all the content you want. You can serve me all the brainwashing bullshit you want. You can try to tell me what to think and what to like. You can try to tell me that I would rather be doing TikTok than shooting a basketball. I'm telling you, you're wrong. I want to go shoot a basketball. I want to go talk to my friends who have alienated me because I've been bashing Facebook for two fucking years. I want my life back. I want my pre-pandemic life back. I actually want my pre Facebook life back. Thanks. I'm ready to get out of the blue vortex. I'm just ready. I'm done. We don't need it for anything. Export export export, export to Google+, please we're done. We're so done, dude, you're MySpace. Facebook is about to be MySpace. That's the shit that's going to happen. I believe, what do you need WhatsApp for? Really. Do you really need WhatsApp? What do you need Facebook Messenger for? Signals pretty fine. Signal is great. I'm not switching. Yet, I still use these fucking things. But I'm just going to investigate the fuck out of this company. Come on, these are criminals. We know it. They're so dumb and bad. And they've partnered with Microsoft as I've said in previous episodes. This stuff isn't complicated. They're criminals, they're working with each other. Their assholes,.

"The problem is that there's all this efficiency code under the hood which basically under the hood, these modules that are basically just like hidden and react in the build path and in the more importantly in the just in time compilation stuff. Just in time, there's a lot of stuff in memory in react code. Like there's time for your computer to render in memory all the Twitter posts. Imagine you're looking at Twitter, Twitter, which runs in react, as far as I know. And in real time, you're looking at all of the content on your screen, all the Twitter content and Facebook has the capacity through react, I believe. You can call me a conspiracy theorist. I believe Facebook has the capacity to remotely reorder that information. You can prove me wrong. Please prove me wrong. I'd love to be proof and wrong. But I think that react is so complicated that basically before the page paints, I think Facebook can send a message through react that causes the posts to load in memory and for Facebook to make a few calls back and forth over the network to reorder those posts on the fly. Even though Facebook is not Twitter, they can control it through react is what I believe. Pete hunt, who helped me write the book, move fast, works at Twitter. He works on the health team at Twitter. I want to know what Pete hunt is doing at Twitter. I want to know it. I want to know, I want to know what Nick schrock is doing in elemental. Nick's shock is now has now banned me. From interacting with him. Why would my co author on a book about Facebook block me? Because I'm crazy, really? Dude, you're going to block me without even saying anything, man? And you're just gonna fucking block me kind of scumbag bullshit is that, man, I've covered your company and voluminous detail dumb ass. I invested in it. I'm an investor in elemental. I put ten grand in because I believe in Nick schrock is a brilliant engineer. He made GraphQL. Doesn't matter if you're still a criminal. Facebook is a criminal company and they should be looked at like criminals. Like a mafia, like a bad mafia. I think there's mafias out there that actually mean good. I would guess so. I kind of felt that way about the PayPal mafia, like they're actually a mafia that just tries to do well. The Facebook mafia, I'm not so convinced. I think they're deeply tied to China and that's why you don't see much critique of China in our landscape. Because zuck just has partnered with them at a deep level. And therefore, we're not critiquing them like we should. Like, with concentration camps, I don't need to go much further in this post. Just to wrap it up, I worked for Sequoia Capital as a scout. I interacted with Mike for now. I saw enough of the guy to know that this guy's got something to hide. He worked at Facebook during their criminal days, which is every day. Facebook developed mind control technology in a certain way, I believe. Interrogation is mind control. All you have to do is read about interrogation and think about how to digitize it. There's plenty of ways to digitize interrogation. Especially if everybody installs your app on their phone. Can you imagine if you're a human being that literally thinks it's okay to develop something called mind reading? You actually think that this is a permissible technology to develop. And you're going to put it on all the phones in the world through Facebook. And you think this is okay. Imagine you think this is actually excusable. This is Mike for now. This guy actually thinks it's excusable to pursue mind reading. No, no. You can do things that are latent forms of mind reading, like thinking about an ad to display to me based on a based on an okay for you to know subset of my information. No, you shouldn't get to know who I have a crush on and use that to serve me ads. Maybe you can figure that out through latent signals, but you don't get to go into my messages and look at who I have a crush on. As if you're actually trying to do that and use that to show me ads that look like that person. That's creepy. There's just this line, right? There's this line of creepy behavior that you don't pass, especially if you're an engineer. Okay, when you, when you learn to program, there's that moment where you realize, oh my God, I could build anything. There's that moment where you realize it's an engineer, the problem is not how do you build it? The problem is, what do you build? And Facebook's answer to that is fuck it. Let's build everything. No. That's not okay. You don't get to build everything. We don't need to build everything. There are things that we shouldn't be spending our time building. Like some kind of crepe creepy mechanical snake, can you imagine like a creepy mechanical snake that would just sneak under your door and attack you? Because it's a robotic mechanical snake and it's evil. And it's controlled by like satellites or 5G or something. You could build that. I'm not even joking. You could build a mechanical snake with sharp teeth that would creepy crawl into your room and attack.

"That's just how this fucking machine works. Look, if nothing else, if I run out of things to do, I'll go and start a venture capital firm. And I'll actually do it right. I'm so unafraid of losing my reputation of losing my money. I don't really worry about those things. I'm a smart individual. I can make it in this world, especially in the United States of America, which I deeply deeply respect. Yeah, I'm an American. I'm a patriot. And I don't joke about that. I actually believe in this stuff. Whether or not it's being enforced by Joe Biden or any government officials as far as I can tell. I'm a believer in ideals. I really believe that the Facebook open-source software is basically malware injections. I think that Facebook spreads malware through open-source software. I think Facebook spreads malware through its ad network. And by malware, I mean software that does things that you don't expect. I believe it's software that affects your operating system and your browser and your Google searches. I think Facebook is so insidious that they do all of this shit. And I'm gonna find out whether or not it's true. What do you do when you discover that the most influential technology company is blatantly corrupt? We know they're blatantly corrupt. Francis Gauguin has proved that. All of the other Facebook bullshit that we've seen over the years has proved that. This company is so criminal. This is not a joke. I'm not joking. My career is in chatter, is in tatters right now. Because I went after this fucking company. I've been so discredited. I've been so attacked, and I believe I've been drugged. I seriously think I've been I think people microdosed me as shit. I think I've been to the psychiatric hospital ten times in two years. I have been really trying to get my grip on sanity. I have not drank alcohol. I've gone through spurts where I take psychiatric drugs just to try to get a handle on whatever the fuck is going on. Maybe I'm just crazy from COVID. Maybe I've just got the covids. I don't think so. I think somebody fucked with me. I think multiple people fucked with me. Because I wrote a book about Facebook. They were doing this to me before the book was even published because they knew it was too much information. They knew what I was going to realize that this company is just so goddamn bad and controlling. They have their shit in everything from the dating apps to your browsers operating system code. The other shoe is dropping now it's time Facebook, you're going down and your extension of control throughout Silicon Valley, including at Sequoia Capital, which is now run by Mike for now, those days are numbered. And if you want to help me share this with people, particularly share it with your friends who work at Facebook or who are Facebook apologists. This company needs to be investigated, they need to be ransacked, basically. We need to go into their offices and look through all of the papers. We need to go through all of the old archives that they have. We need to look through their servers. We need to treat Facebook as harshly as we treat it enron. That's how devastatingly dumb and bad this company is. That's how misguided we've become. I am going to find out. I'm going to look at all of this shit. I've never done anything illegal. Other than break a window and spend a night in county jail because I broke a window and because I just wanted to see what it was like inside of a jail. Facebook's top engineer is trying to read your mind. Do you know what Facebook would do to you if they really wanted to try to read your mind? They would put you in a room and they would do stuff to you with electronics and Havana attacks. They would play music for you in ways that would disturb you. They would change the messages in WhatsApp. They would change the messages in Facebook Messenger and fuck it. They might even change the messages that you see in Twitter, because Twitter runs in react code now. That's how bold I'm getting with my accusations. I think Facebook can use react code to manipulate the truth of any page built in react. I did a show called the react vulnerability about this. On software engineering daily. React is open-source, but it's not owned by. It's not owned by an open-source organization. React is controlled by Facebook. That's significant. If you want to make real open-source software, you put it under an organization like the Linux foundation, not even that anymore, but like the Apache software foundation, Apache software foundation is legit open-source, as far as I know, and there's certain rules around how open-source software is managed. We have reviews, we have pull requests to get reviewed by third parties. You can't just do open-source and have your whole company manage the open-source. That's a conflict of interest, dumb ass. Facebook is trying to rewrite the rules of what open-source software is by keeping it under control of a single company. That's not open-source. The reason it's not open-source is because it's not actually auditable. You can't just say, hey, because we publish all this code in the open. That's open-source. No. They've got all these different confusing fucking things in react. You can just look at all the coverage I've done of react all these complicated things like react hooks and react whatevers. I mean, I'm not saying these things are impossible for a programmer to program against. Their APIs, their surface areas. That's great. Program against the API surface area..

"Do not like bullies. I did not start my career as a software engineering daily founder to document bullying. I didn't do I didn't want to become an investigative journalist. I wanted to cover the software industry because I wanted to find a company opportunity to build. As it turned out, the world needs a software engineering media outlet that is reliable because most of the software engineering media outlets can be bought. You can pay them money for sponsored posts and eradicate any truth. We don't do that. I found out the truth about Facebook. They're the best run software engineering organization I've ever seen, and it's not close. And I worked at Amazon. Facebook has true innovation. They are truly innovative. They're amazing. But they made some mistakes. They thought that they were more powerful than justice and truth and rationality and kindness. And I believe they formed a deep alliance with China. And I believe that that alliance between Facebook and China is so deep and pervasive that allows them to control Silicon Valley by deploying Chinese people into organizations and controlling those organizations, effectively through the will of Facebook. I don't care that that sounds like a conspiracy. I will die on the hill that that conspiracy should be investigated. And I'm going to do the investigation. Unless somebody else wants to help me, some kind of government or something like an American government, I would love that. If you want to forward this to the FBI or the CIA, go for it. I'm looking to have some real conversations here. I've been having the bullshit conversations for a while now. I'm ready for the real conversations. I'm ready to be told, what is going on here? Today I'm going to also release an episode on software engineering daily called calling all Facebook whistleblowers. That's right. I'm your port of call. If Facebook did something to you, I want to know about it. If you're a Facebook engineer and you're seeking refuge, I want to be that refuge. I worked for Sequoia Capital as a scout for 9 months. And I learned nothing about the organization. Barely anything. One thing I did learn is that they're very disrespectful. They treated me with such a lack of respect that you know what I'm just made me suspicious. So a scout for Sequoia Capital, what you do is you look for company investment opportunities. You look for the best companies that they haven't heard of. And you go and send emails to your Sequoia contact. My contact was Constantine Bueller. You send an email to your contact and you say, hey, I think this company is worth investing in. Can we talk about it? And it gives you an opportunity to learn what companies Sequoia likes to invest in. And I learned that Sequoia Capital is actually extraordinarily good at learning what to invest in. And knowing what to invest in. They do a great job. Sequoia Capital, as its originally intended is a great organization. And venture capital is amazing. Another thing I really, really wanted when I started software engineering daily was to be part of the venture capital community, because it's basically a. Pro social form of poker, venture capital lets you look through a variety of business opportunities and find which ones you should bet on. That's awesome. That's fun. At an early stage, and you get to help people who are early on in their business careers. That's really cool. Venture capital has been weaponized. The way that venture capital works in Silicon Valley is it just intimidates people. It intimidates people with large checks..

"It's been a great year for the Facebook platform, but Mike vernell wants more. Facebook's director of engineering tells us the social network is trying to pump up user posts favoring longer stories and content and adding data that will help Facebook and its partners repurpose even the simplest status updates. An article from 2012 in wired. It's from November 28th, 2012. This is an article about Mike vernal. Mike for now is one of Facebook's former top engineers. And today he effectively runs Sequoia Capital. Sequoia Capital is the most powerful venture capital firm in Silicon Valley. And I worked as a scout for Sequoia Capital for about, I guess, 9 months. Maybe a year. Sequoia Capital, I believe, is a criminal organization. They're widely known as a mafia in Silicon Valley. And I think that ever since Mike for now joined the show, things have become downright criminal. And the reason I believe that is because I believe have been a victim of criminal activities. I was bullied as a kid. And that's part of why I started software engineering daily, because the industry is run by bullies. Bullying is mean and it controls people. We already know that Facebook is evil. We already know it from their public actions. Again, look at the Facebook whistleblower. The Facebook whistleblower risked her entire career. She did corporate espionage. Francis Gauguin, she committed corporate espionage because she thought it was so important to fully disclose that Facebook knowingly shows material to people that makes them depressed. They create negative feedback loops in life. They've been doing this since at least 2012. This whole story about Mike for now, in wired, is about creating negative feedback loops, which effectively hypnotize people. Facebook can hypnotize people at scale. Mark Zuckerberg studied psychology. He believes that's an excuse to play God with people satis updates and the ads that you show them and the content that you show them in the order that you show it to them. And at the time at which you show it to them. This is what we know about the company publicly, that they're willing to commit mass psychosis. Do human beings? That's what they do publicly. Now, what kinds of technology does Facebook have? Facebook has virtual reality technology. Haptic skin detection technology, meaning they can interface with your skin. They have the deepest understanding of who you are as an individual and what you want, what you're afraid of, they can signal these things to you in latent ways. I've read about what makes people powerful. I was bullied as a kid again. And I never really fought back. My way of fighting back was to succeed at things. One thing I succeeded at was competitive poker. I played competitive poker at pretty high stakes up to $5000 buy ins. The largest pot I ever lost was $34,000. I lost it when I was I think 19. So I'm used to dealing with bullies. I'm used to dealing with combative psychiatric and psychological situations. And in those battles, sometimes you get beaten down. And over the last two years, I've gotten beaten down. And I think I've gotten beaten down with every tool in the fucking Facebook book. Facebook is so powerful. If you were as powerful as Facebook, don't you think you would look for means they're slightly outside the realm of illegal? I have been a victim of those things. If you join the CIA, this is what I've heard. And you really want to know how the CIA doesn't interrogation? You're going to probably be micro dosed. They're going to give you little doses of LSD and maybe PCP, and other things, because they're going to test your will. They're going to test your ability to keep calm and to actually be psychologically composed. Under systems of extreme arrests. I also played magic the gathering. Magic the gathering was the best education for strategy, mind control, psychology, advanced bluffing. And in magic, there are cheaters. There are people who bend the rules. There are people who intimidate you when you're playing against them. And I never did much of that shit. I actually did cheat. One time, as far as I can remember, there was one time when I cheated, maybe there were a couple times that I cheated, where I was just so hell bent on winning a game of magic the gathering that I cheated. There was actually a deck that I played, a minds desire deck. There's a card called minds desire. And this card is so powerful that. There were really, really powerful decks built around it. And it's called mind's desire. And it's telling you something. That card told me something. It told me that there are things that are too powerful to do and you shouldn't do them. Facebook has done some of those things behind closed doors. And I'm making my job to find out what those things were. I want to know the nastiest stuff that Facebook did. From Francis Gauguin, we know that Facebook does the stuff that we all know that they do, right? We all know that Facebook actively makes people feel worse. We know that they do it through Instagram. That's the most obvious one. What are the latent ways in which Facebook is torturing us? What are the ways behind the scenes that they've been signaling information to us that just makes us feel bad, you know? If you show me a picture of my dead cat in the middle of the day, that's going to break my heart and piss me off. Facebook does that kind of stuff. I'm convinced. Do I have proof? Not yet. I'm going to find it. I want to know what this company has done. I am so, so tired of being ridiculed by my peers..

Gardening Through the Seasons With Laura Ekasetya, Former Director Of Lurie Garden

"Having just moved across the seasonal threshold of the vernal equinox here in the northern hemisphere. This week we continue our focus on land and land ecology-based garden projects this time in conversation with horticulturalist and plants woman laura ecosystem area. I spoke with laura late last season. Checking in with her on her work as director and head horticulturalist at the famed lurie garden in chicago's millennium park. Welcome to the program. Laura i have been following the lurie garden since it opened in two thousand four and i have been following your work for years now in the public around. It is really lovely to have you here with me. Thank you for having me. This is wonderful. I would love to have you share with listeners. Your current relationship with plants. I have described you as the director and head horticulturalist at the garden. But what does that actually mean laura. And what is your relationship to plants. Both personally and professionally. What do they look like right now. In your life my relationship to plants right now is trying to imagine what they will look like through multiple seasons. Were in a very four season part of the country. And i'm always interested in what will be the next thing that you're i will go to in a garden setting. I started out in this career early on working with research evaluation plants of perennials and it was always interesting to see them lined up side by and how they changed over the seasons and even within seasons and i think i came to this garden because i was really interested in how time is an element in garden design and i think that's a good intro to understanding.

What You Can Learn From a Happy Dog

"Since it's Monday. I have to ask this question. It's probably more important this week than most of the year have you done your homework? Did you sit down? And check it on your world and see what's happening. Life. Going well for you and you keep it. That way is life maybe a challenge and you would like to change that. How are you GONNA do that? What are you focused on how your relationships is your job is your life. When you take a few minutes to think about that and to put a little effort, maybe five minutes hardly anything at all. It'll change your perspective about how you're living in. It will automatically I really mean that automatically move you in the direction that you think you wanna go because what you acknowledged that hey, this is good. This is bad.

It's motivation dot com it's free, go download the PDF watched the videos you know how to use it perfect week planner dot com is also where you can find it. So I'll tell you about a dog today I mean to my dogs I like dogs dogs a few years back. I got Levi. And Levi and Australian shepherd, and he's my agility dog take them out random and competition. He's a master agility champion now. In one of the organizations like twenty, five of them but I take them out all the time. So I play a lot. Spend a Lotta time with my dog and enclose a great dog but she's just kind of hound dog. So she doesn't do that kind of thing. I like my dogs. A lot of people like dogs. I have a friend. His name Jackson. Man I gotTA. Tell you. He's one of those friends that I look at them I. Wish it could be Jackson. is so consistent and he's so successful at what he does have you ever seen a friend like that before. That was a little bit jealous of it. I. Don't get Jealous Anymore in kind of maybe a little envious I'll be honest with you. It's like, okay. How do that so consistent so successful. He really does make me feel. Makes Mentor Carter I know I shouldn't be that way, but I can't help. But I think we're all that waits kind of natural and my view has always been. Well, if I arrive there I need to adjust that attitude right away and so I don't get very often anymore but sometimes a see he's talented people like But problem is Jackson's not the most talented. Is Not. He he doesn't necessarily work any harder. He really, he really doesn't he he he's one of those. Well he doesn't get real serious a real stuffy either. Looking enough. Win Or lose. Jackson always has a reason to celebrate. Although, he wins most of the time and then he takes an pm he's a dog Jackson's a dog. If you're an Australian shepherd you know. What I mean when I say the treat, the world as their trampoline majors bouncy they bounce bounce bounce Jackson bounces like nobody else win or lose. When I see him at a competition he ju- It doesn't matter what he does gets up there and he just Kinda does thing is not fast. Young jump pretty well he's. Not. It's not an exciting thing to watch but he always finishes and. oftentimes a wins and I might leave I. He loves Jackson. Through they compete in dog agility but but they love each other they just get along they bounced. Back and forth everything believe is different. He's a little bit more like me because I've got to train them that way I guess Levi likes to run. Fast. Because I like you run fast there is no see. I don't run just to qualify just to say, did I run to win I run for blue ribbons every single time it's built in. There's not one time in my life I've ever said listen. Let me just pull back and get you know get a prize. No I'm going to go for the Blue I'M GONNA win. COSCO AT crash crashing vernal ought to do that. When I win it's a good thing but Levi does the same thing he goes and he wins tunnel ribbons affect many times we moved out of the competition out of a certain category and if you think God you're gone because now I can win ribbons. Many Times as gotten I and yet he he didn't get a qualification. He needed to go on to the next level because you have to qualify. If do certain things even though he was the fastest their styles are really different. Jackson just kind of bounces along. That's there is to Levi on either hands I'm going to blow it up I'm gonNA. Hit Hard. We'd go to get run fast dad can I go faster? Very different. But both dogs and frankly both owners both handlers as we call him. We run for one reason. It's fun. That's it. Both dogs only run for one reason because they get to run and play with their their owners. They're just enjoying the process they get to go in the ring and run and have just nothing but fun. And we get enjoy that funds. Have you never played with the dog at that level you you're missing something.

"I like to welcome the show Sam and Nina. Oppenheim Sam you may remember from being on the show way back you can find Samsa Tiger fee at Sam Oppenheim, dot com Sam and Nina welcome to the show. Thank you for having a Song Chris to care and I say Sam has been on the show in a while we figure it's something like ten years of marriage in two kids later that SAM is back. In the early years talking about Bali and northern India and Laos I believe if I am. Correctly, but you're talking something a little more domestic this time. What are we talking about today? So mostly the national parks in northern Colorado I figured because of Covid we did a little domestic travel and there's some amazing sites at their dinosaur, national? Monument. Doesn't get enough attention and Rocky Mountain National Park among a lot of people's favorites excellent and you did this as part of a larger RV trip this year. Correct. So we did our first ever family RV trip and we all four corners, Arizona Utah Colorado? New Mexico but what we covered has been covered by your show before like the route sixty six stuff in New Mexico and Arizona we did that and you recently had a podcast about the national parks in Arizona. Offer beaten past beyond the Grand Canyon so we don't want to repeat anything It's getting tougher. So we do repeat some things these days. In fact, I'm going to try and repeat the show we did allows Laos coming up here sometime I'm just looking for a guest. So let's focus in on Colorado which I think we decided was about a week long portion of your trip yes and you doing this by RV right excellent and where should we start if you're GONNA? Do it just all on its own as a one week one way road trip you could fly into Salt Lake City and fly out of like older Denver area. But I'm not GonNa Really. WanNa talk about Salt Lake City that much. So I think. Can we just start in Dinosaur National Monument border of Utah and Colorado. So we're up in the north western corner of Colorado when we're in dinosaur national monument correct it's most of the monument is now in Colorado but the part with the dinosaur quarry is in Utah and it's one of those parks that stretches across the border and it's Absolutely. Incredible. It's actually two hundred, ten, thousand acres and includes two river canyons both the green and Yamba River canyons and so some people think Oh, it's a national monument. It's not as big as a national park will actually it's a lot bigger than some national park. So the designation National Park is more Congressional and National Monument is Presidential Right? It doesn't determine the funding or the sides are valued visiting the site right? Exactly. So I have spent some time in Dinosaur National Monument but I've done exactly the opposite of the things that you've done. So tell me a little bit about your experience first of all. Yes. So we did is we stayed in an RV campsite outside of the park, but actually we're going to recommend that anyone doing this trip stays inside the park. It's just going to be a better trip I'm talking this cold tour that we're going to be doing here is more of an outdoorsy type of tourism, and so I think if you word of a reserve, the campground at either Split Mountain or Green River on the Utah side of. Dinosaur. National Monument. You would then be inside the park. It's a beautiful campground right on a quiet stretch of the Green River, and all these campgrounds can be reserved on recreation dot Gov, and you could do it with an RV and could do it with a tent. But if you wanted to stay outside there are places you can stay in Jensen Utah which is kind of the border town for the national. Monument, in Utah more in Dinosaur Colorado, they named the town after the monument. Okay and neither of those are all that large town as I am now I think the largest town in the area's vernal Utah, which a little further west than Johnson and actually we should mention that if you're into dinosaurs hopefully you are. If you're going to dinosaur national monument, there is actually a lovely museum in Vernal Utah Not a large museum, but you can see some velociraptor and things like that. So especially, if you're there with kids and I think you were traveling with two. That's that's someplace that I would recommend. We were on prevent a long drive from Bryce Canyon Up to Dinosaur National Monument, and so we drove to rural and it was we made sure to stop at some of those dinosaur statutes that are in town. We weren't unfortunately stay for the museum. I. Don't know if it was open actually right now a lot of museums here in two, thousand, twenty, nine open. It was great to see those the statues in town. If you like photo ops with giant roadside dinosaurs, you won't be disappointed on this road trip.

"The problem with the old three sixty five days a year system in which you gain a day. Every four years has been reduced. But not entirely eliminated. Under the Julian calendar, you know again a day every one hundred twenty eight years. So after a few centuries, astrologers end religious leaders would have started to notice that the Canada had drifted by a few days that most people this might not seem to matter Kes- if Windsor starts on the twenty third of December when it used assault on the twenty-first hundreds of years ago. Well Both of the astrologist because they livelihoods depended on being sentenced about with installs, planets were and knowing certain whether we're going to be, and the church was especially concerned, because it meant that they were celebrating early festivals on the wrong day most importantly all East Asia. Now I've spoken on even astronomer. Before about how Easter is calculated. It's supposed to commemorate the day when Jesus returned from the dead and for long and involved reasons, it has to be both time to the Jewish festival of the Paul Sova and it had to be on Sunday. Soap to deal with the differences between the Jewish, lunar calendar and the Roman Julian calender they used a system in which different date is calculated for each year involving the Vernal Equinox phase of the moon and the week. So with that much variability already baked in. It didn't really mattered I. It was off by a day. But as the centuries passed that Eric hips on accumulating, it's all by the sixteenth century, the of drifted by a full ten days when we it was meant to be. That was unacceptable to the Catholic Church because the date of the Crucifixion Resurrection, the Little Founding Events of Christianity, as a religion were tied to the dates of the vernal equinox, and that made that states a point of doctrine. The rental equinox was officially when the church sitter was, but you couldn't just go to carrying it. Today's of liquid when anybody with the means and education could just see quite plenty for themselves. That actually had already happened ten days ago. Was An embarrassment, and it made a false of the whole system, so in fifteen forty five, the council of Trent authorized poll third to begin the process of reforming the calendar and bring back into alignment with reality. was. A big job and top mathematicians were recruited from around. Europe to work on a solution to the problem. One of those invited by the way was our old friend Nicholas Copernicus, but he turned it down. He was a private shammond. Big controversial projects like that would've made his life way to public. Anyway the solution that they eventually settled on had two pots I. They needed to stop the drift. And they found off to doing all this sums that they could do this. By reducing the number of leap years from one hundred leap years every four centuries to ninety-seven every four centuries. The old system was very simple, and that every full year was a leap year, but the new system added an exception to that rule, and then at an exception to the exemption, so what they come up with was the sister. What you sleeves today was simply that any year which is divisible by full like. Nineteen eighty four hundred, ninety two. Is Olympia. The exception, essentially as seventeen, hundred, eighteen, hundred, nineteen, hundred, and the exception to that exception was at every full century is a leap year so sixteen hundred was a leap year two thousand was a leap year and two thousand four hundred will be a leap. With a system event only lose a day every seven thousand seven hundred years, which means that we're not going to have to miss about with us again for very real time. But the second part of the solution..

"Plan of the week is once again which Zal now witch Hazel is a broad range of plants. They are Ohio natives Laced out in the woods. Of course there hi Oh natives and then some of the special ones that we get in our yards are what are called intermediate their cross between either of several parts of the species They vary incised shape and form their colors And Right now the one that I have that just came into full bloom wall. I'm I'm not sure I didn't see it till Bundy but it's at least in full bloom probably will be if his temperature stay down for another three four weeks Way I won't call a dazzling but it certainly some color in the backyard. Right now The pedals are very thin but there are a lot of them and the mine happens to be what I'M GONNA call gold toward copper The pedals are thin but about a hello anywhere from half to three quarters of an inch long et etc the The whole group of them bloom in the wintertime. Which is very strange? Because you think of insects. Having to pollinate these things insects are indeed out on our forty to sixty five degree days so that they can get some pollination but it's it's interesting than to have the big big group of what are called common which as in the october-november period then a break right through now and I'm going to say call it. The fifteenth of of of January is the usual bloom. Time so they're pretty much right on time this year and to have something in flower in the yard at at this point is quite significant to me Now is it GonNa be as beautiful as a flooring crab in a beautiful light pink in the spring. No Oh no but when there's no other show in town it's quite something there are In this intermediate or crossed bunch there are about twenty-five named plants. They vary from extremely shrub. A low spreading to trees. The can in Insignificant Age can reach twenty five thirty feet and size mine Well it's now thirty plus the one that blooms in October and it's around twelve sir. Well twelve or thirteen feet top. The newest one is only about eight foot tall but at the same time they do add some color. They are a bit of an under story that can handle some shade. They also take full Sun If you help them a little bit with the printer's not even very much you can make them quite ornate There was one in front of a home that I worked with many years ago. That was absolutely the epitome of interesting plants There was a great big brick wall fault. Well closed brick wall no windows or whatever On the side of the front door and lady planted this tree she said which was a young woman. Whatever that may have meant but it was probably in the fifties As its own age concern at that point an absolutely magnificent flowering fall color color shape. The character of the tree in front of that brick wall now well or during the wintertime was just magnificent. You couldn't make one plant do more jobs. Now we use the word. Vernal scaring the vernal equinoxes is the first day of spring but you use it as vernal witch Hazel. Yes vernal witch Hazel is. It's technical name If you WANNA try this Hemila h. m. a. m. e. L. I. S. Vernalis. Now you don't have to get that point but if you're if you're looking for tags in the in the garden center yeah that is what it is the one that's in bloom now. Hamma Milas Virginia Indiana is the common one that blooms back in October and then there are all. I think it's safe to say among the twenty five cultivars or more.

"Welcome back to Lars Larsen show the glad to be with you on a conspiracy theory Thursday night glad to get your calls to and I'll get to those in just a moment but I want to give you a perspective because all of the folks on the Democrat side of the aisle I mean everyone of them that was riding the clown bus toward the nomination which is rapidly getting it's going to be a short bus here pretty soon because by the time they get to November a whole bunch of those candidates are going to be gone they're going to be just gone and they're gonna be winnowing it down and of course we still got the question mark Bernie Sanders who had a heart attack full on a heart attack and at first he said I'm a scale back my rallies and then yesterday comes out and says I'm not scaling back at all he's he's gonna be telling people to get off his lawn for a good long time now and you've got Elizabeth Warren who's come up with new lies to add to the old lies and we talked about that too you got Joe Biden Ukraine Joe and he's got his own set of problems so it's coming and singing see which one is chosen by the Democrat party but all of them agree on one thing to a greater or lesser extent Medicare for all because god knows the federal government just like the state government knows how to screw up everything so why not let them screw up our health care while they're at it seems like such a sensible idea I love the fact that they've all bought into this because it makes it a lot easier for Donald Trump to beat in the fall of next year but I thought we would talk to Lenny Vermont vernal plots who is the founder of executive care healthcare company serving seniors disabled a recovering addicts you'll grow up under exactly this kind of healthcare system did you not Lenny yes good evening yet they did and I don't have very dark memories about that period would you mind talking about your your time in the Soviet Union but find you before you finally came to the United States absolutely so just some of my personal experience when I was a child I needed to have an operation so my father had to find the best doctor he could find and pay them a lot of money and that's under socialized medicine and brought brought it abroad abroad and attracted a bride because back then doctors made less money than garments garbage people on on the streets collecting garbage so I was put into a room of with fifteen other kids and when I finally went to to get a surgery that map to put me out and he and he did it didn't work so they took a ragged he there on it and so it on my face and that was the and the algebra out yeah it was horrible so I did again again my my experience is that it's a choice design a vacation did you know advancement in medicine I called what we call Medicare for all is Medicare anon because we know that everything is going to be rations and people will just I guess fight for it to get an appointment with a doctor or or or get a surgery in the hospital so it it it does not look good from my vantage server applause I agree with you a bit I've never lived under a socialized medicine system but I see them from a distance I'd rather stay at a distance from them but I'll throw the question out there anyway because I imagine this is what all the folks who are fans of Medicare for all would say as well yeah that but that was the Soviet Union it'll be all different here in the United States when we run socialized medicine it'll be much more civilized how would you respond to that my my it they didn't know it would not be penalized because a country of over three hundred million people and having if we look north to Canada from other countries in Europe that there are there the national population but a lot smaller than ours and make a make a little it I actually visited Denmark last summer and spoken to some then you said it and then they said well out our our our medical system but the little out of but if I needed to go emergency room I have to make an appointment I don't know that that's so silly if you have an emergency how the world is going to make an appointment to go to market your room you don't know I guess you end about a block or you show but the emergency room and figure out whose whose hand you need to put a fifty dollar bill and to get to the head of the line exactly my point which kind of takes a back to capitalism but it's the kind of raw capitalism but I don't think any of us really want like big because once again the Democrats are going to say well well but but in that case and and to do it in the way that Elizabeth Warren Bernie Sanders the rest will say they want to do it they have to outlaw private care do they not and that's another issue so last time I checked that the private insurance industry employed millions of people and then I make private insurance illegal all of people lose their job the mobile well but they would also find their jobs in the massive new government bureaucracy needed to run this I'm not saying it's a good thing but but but correct me if I'm wrong this will take a massive government bureaucracy to run will it not or or it except for one thing people cut tell me constantly they love Medicare and they're generally people are on Medicare benefiting from it but they say the administrative costs are so low and I said that's because the government doesn't do the administration they shoved it on to the private doctor the doctor who here she has to have two or three or four people in the backroom chasing dollars and chasing paperwork to recover the payments for his Medicare patients well the private sector if it if it's Medicare for all will have to replicate that won't take absolutely I mean we think the trend today a lot of doctors closing up private practices and they become employees of the hospital so something is going on something a little in the moving in that direction right now and it's telling about the insurance companies they're telling doctors that if you don't join the group under the hospital will just not there anymore will not be pursued not property claims so it is slowly moving in that direction right now well in in when when you see numbers I mean nobody had no I well other than Bernie Sanders I don't think any of them of actually fessed up to an honest number for Medicare for all but Sanders comes the closest in that he accepted that I think it's thirty two trillion over ten years so called three trillion a year or three quarters of the current almost records the current federal budget and when you hear a number like that you say well where's that money going to come from the Democrats to this financial magic where they say well you won't have to pay your private insurance company all the money and you'll just

"Europe. So far, we've identified many reasons why we are seeing rare events in the weather and an extended winter it's been extended winter. Heck we got what days wait from spring. Spring equinoxes is coming the vernal equinox is coming and we are still having a winter. I mean, we just got over snow. Our temperatures are starting to rise. But that is because you know, on the corners in the outskirts of this major storm fizzes going east. We've we've escaped it. But. The the outer corners of the continent aren't getting this harsh weather every place else, though is getting some very very bad weather, man. I'm getting reports of the Mississippi going over its banks Louisiana says that they're having problems floods everywhere. In michigan. Somebody wrote me saying Michigan. They're feeling that. So this is a big deal. This is a big storm a storm that usually happens on the east coast clip in Alaska and informed over. Colorado. We're hearing that climate change proponents are very supportive now of geo engineering programs. They're supportive of solar dimming projects by private organizations while ignoring the continue stratospheric aerosol injections being carried out, and we are seeing the results with this latest Bomba Genesis or cyclone bomb because it's doing horrible damages across the midwest. And what I don't understand his white people. Don't see this is something I mean. Yeah, sure, you're having a blizzard. And it's normal to have a blizzard. I guess for you or wherever you are. But it's only part of the problem if you're having a blizzard somewhere else, so he's having torrential rains landslides and Colorado. They're having avalanches. They're closing the the areas because of the snow. Snowpack will definitely melt off once the temperatures change immediately. Into a quick you go from the deep freeze too quick warmth. And that's why you cycling bombs are are are pretty dangerous. I mean, the bars of low pressure dropping fast like a bomb. Many people are saying that this is some made up term. No, it's always been around. It was called Bomba Genesis. It's just basically the idea that if if a storm drops twenty four million bars in an hour, then it's the cyclone bomb bomb. Genesis happen all the time. In Alaska to happen. All the time. On the east coast. But the latest cyclone bomb is rare because it formed in the west, and it has forced multiplied as as it's moved east. So the air pressure in the center of the storm has bottomed out about nine hundred sixty eight million bars, which is about the same as a category three hurricane category. Two three give or take the changing air pressure. Over time has an important. Aid factors in very, very important factors forecasting implications. And things of that nature because as pressure lowers over time. Especially if it is rapid pressure lower alluring pressure, and it's more rapid. We begin to see chaotic weather conditions which include precipitation sustained wind gusts and precipitation could be snow could be rain could be anything. I mean just days ago Britain had a cyclone bomb. It was two thousand miles wide some areas sustain eighty mile per hour winds, and that was of course, just a little over a category one hurricane. So just the other day. I was reading that. They were putting out something called danger to light warnings from flying debris because it was like a massive tornado. It was just blowing stuff everywhere. There was a video that was going around the internet today going viral. It showed a truck being blown over by the wind just trucks like driving along and all of a sudden just blows completely over. And I'm sure many of you were having problems that you may want to call and talk about tonight because I would love to hear you know, how this storm is affecting the entire continent. In fact, they called the storm in Europe Britain and Scotland well, actually it went from Spain all the way down. I mean, started inspect. Well, no, wait started in Iceland. I believe and then went through Spain all the way through England and Scotland Ireland and bad had nine hundred fifty eight million bars. So that was the worst storm of its kind. I mean, it was one they hit Europe last year. Which was basically it made self in the United States and traveled. Hurricane-force winds hit Ireland like hit Ireland and moved into England. It moved into the, you know. Manchester London all these areas. So these cycle inbounder scary and. The one that's plaguing. The United States right now formed over Colorado. A rare event for the doesn't happen. In fact, if I can't believe that people are just like downplaying this. This is amazing weather event. Doesn't happen. All the time doesn't doesn't happen. All the time in the mid west. Let's put it that way. So what you're saying is what I'm feeling is is the result of some very interesting geo engineering practices. I'm going to talk about coming up. Triple eight six seven three thirty seven hundred that's triple eight six seven three three seven hundred the storm. Probably the storm of the of the new year. That's the worst storm. We've had it's moving across the midwest. It's horrible. It's called the cyclone bomb. We had one last year, but.
