The sos was set up by prime minister. Winston churchill with the intent of conducting espionage sabotage and reconnaissance throughout occupied europe vero worked diligently to rise through the ranks.

Primary job was to recruit and deploy british agents into occupied france. Vera interviewed the candidates in a stark dimly lit hotel room with just a desk. Two chairs into lightbulb. If they passed that stage vera put their french to the test to ensure they could pass as a native and finally vera closed out the interview process by informing the candidate.

"Day getaway to a place that especially based on what we've been talking about today. We're starting to look forward to coming back to more often. And i think as florida and sort of walt disneyworld locals will activated word. This is a great getaway slash station. It's easy it's about two hours from walt disneyworld but because it's also so close. I think it is something that guests who come to walt disneyworld should think about doing an almost attaching to their trip as well and we'll talk about some of the reasons as we go through our review others work but even when we first got here on thursday night. I said that vero almost reminds me of a cruise type experience or alani where it is this attraction. That is not an attraction. There is no theme park here and especially even here. There's no shows there's no at least right now. There's there's no address. Character meals at buffets. We'll get to that. But like i'll lonnie. It's as awful secluded getaway with a little bit of d- disney sprinkled on top. And if you want us to do something as part of your walt disney world vacation this easy to do. You don't have to worry about especially if you're not cruiser and obviously right now with kobe. We can't cruise. I think this is something that you can plan as either its own little getaway or something that you want to attach to disney vacation. So i think the other important thing to realize is. It's almost like immersive experience that it's total relaxation. You get here and you just feel like so relieved because of the you know the way they greet you still and you walk into the hotel and the amenities are wonderful and you get hit with this beautiful beach smell so right than an air. You're just so excited to be here. I like is like a different experience from the parks and is like it's not like oh they're like a ton of people like piling in because of the parks and the special quantities it just like its own little secluded thing off in the distance away from disneyworld and it has a lot of factors that make it a lot more of a different but better experience than some other resorts that you might think. Well i said know when you think about going to walt disney world. You know you sort of it. It's like you're getting your your battle plan ready like okay. We need to figure out where we're going to stay and book x. Amount of time in advance. And where's our dr. Where what resort are we gonna go to what park no to on what day there is or if stay militaristic strategy and approach to planning your vacation. Because i think for the most part you do need to plan a lot of things in advance depending on where you are on the planet scale whereas here you can just show up and get away and it does have a much more relaxed vibe. A lot of that pressure is off But before we get really into the details about the resort. I wanted to give a little bit of history of how why and when this disney vacation club resort came to be so going back to the early days of disney vacation club Starting off with the original did club resort. which is now old key west. Disney had this very sort of grandiose vision of what they're non timeshare membership program was going to be and the idea was not necessarily to start and build a number of hotels in walt disneyworld but they really wanted to build dvd resorts. Which obviously you don't need to be a dvd member to stay at other locations that were already popular tourist destinations across the country and while they wanted to sort of not be a timeshare per se. It was very much in alignment with that same type of model and the first desertification pro club. Property was what is now. Disney's old key west resort but three out of the next four projects were meant to be in very different locations. One was gonna be at hilton head south carolina. Obviously which is there. Another one which was one that was never built was going to be at newport beach california and then the next one was the boardwalk that took a number of years to develop after that and after old key west opened in nineteen ninety-one it took about four years before another disney vacation club. Property would join the the lineup and that was vero beach. Which in october of nineteen ninety-five and basically what disney did was during that first year of the disney vacation club being an existence. Disney earned a sizable sum of money. And they used a good portion of that to invest in oceanfront land here at vero peach and newport beach california and the idea and the philosophy was similar for both coasts right. They wanted to build the the idea of marrying a walt disney world or disney vacation or disneyland vacation to you know sort of this. This idea of a theme park vacation and peach mckay doing both together and attaching one to the other which is why newport beach which is about twenty miles from disneyland and you know in southern california twenty miles. It's the same. It's about two hours away and here vero. Beach is about one hundred miles from walt disneyworld and to get to either place would be about two hours and unfortunately the newport beach never really happened but obviously the vero beach resort. That plane was already in flight. And you'll see the when you walk in to even when you approach vero beach from the anesthetic and a theme style. You'll see it very much. Has this retro florida type of feel to it. It almost makes me think of like Like disney springs and other places. Where like homecoming for example. That sort of simpler quote unquote real florida. Feel and one of things. That are a few of the things that dizzy one or two really instill initially it has continued on and really grown was not just incorporating nature and the natural surroundings and resources into the resort but it being an educational opportunity as well and i think that's why picked a place like vero as opposed to someplace that was even more populated like a like daytona beach or that already was sort of a very heavily congested area. And what they decide to do. Was incorporate this idea of this part of florida being what's known as the treasure coast with this idea of nature and we'll talk about the conservation and environmental efforts and learning opportunities that go on here but even as you walked resort. You'll see that nature is very much inclusive in the design and in the artwork. There's a paintings and photos of some of the natural inhabitants of the areas as well as like a lonnie. Just a little bit of the touch of mickey to sort of remind you that you're still at disney resort without being sort of over the top and and very whimsical so this this combination of old foot all florida and indian river country history throughout the resort. And as you walk through the lobby down some of the side passageways. By where the spot is there. Some great old photographs there about how this has been dodger town for so many years and just some of the history of the area but i very much love. The aesthetic relaxed laid back sort of old.
Where to Find a Truly Authentic Disney Beach Vacation
"We're going to be talking all about disney's beach resorts and we're talking about disney's i guess. Would we call them their real beach resorts all around the world. Not their photo. Beach resorts at their feet resort feats resorts like that fo- beach and we're talking about places like what disney's beach club resort would be there features are and just a little bit of background. I remember when we talked about the wave pool that was in the lagoon and outside of the polynesian and dick nunez the emad surfer who turned imagine near and when they first opened disneyworld he thought disneyworld had to compete with beach resorts in florida. And that no one would wanna go there because there wasn't a beach so they created beaches and they tried to do surfing. Didn't really work but then later. They added the pool at typhoon lagoon yet and of course they added the beach club resort and tom along they deign has a real sand bottom. But it still wasn't real and when we say beach resorts i guess. Let's put it this way in front beach resorts well all right. Well we'll get into that. So there are you may or may not know three count them three actual disney beach resorts not associated with any theme parks. And we've talked about one on this podcast in the past if you're planning summer vacation hopefully we're all going traveling this summer and you want to go to a beach resort and you love disney. We're gonna give you three amazing options for disney beach resorts and i'm putting them in my personal preference order. You're probably going to agree with my order. I would imagine start with number one. Most important will go first. Okay and that for me is alani lenny desire lani resort and spa in co alina. A wa who hawaii i do you say that. So he no or lena that. So co lena is the little town. This is a true beachfront resort in hawaii. In this episode we're going to focus on the beaches because we're talking about beach vacations. We will do more in depth on the resorts. We've already done one about our number two which will get to momentarily. But if you there's nothing really. That beats a hawaiian beach. What do you think jonah blank blank. So the beach call. Lena is you fly. Into on her lulu. And it's a really short drive right. We definitely rent a car. And i'll get into why that resort alani is right on the ocean in this really upscale town called co alina and it's a little bit of an interesting beach there because it it's very sheltered. They have storm break. So it's not very good for surfing but if you're one of those people that likes to think the ocean is a pool that has no currents at all. This might be for you. Yeah it's of funny. Because i learned somewhere along the way in my travel life that most of resort hotels on islands even barbados in that they build the hotels on the quiet side of the island. But we love waves right. We like big waves. So we'd always have to do. When i was surfing and barbados. You gotta go down to the super bowl's on the other side of the island but all the big resorts are on the calm side. If there is one and co lena's the whole point is sort of like that but actually there's four lagoons dan this strip of land in their man made so they did like you said they built breakwaters and they're sort of like a c shape. It's almost like a donut with a little cutout which is open to the ocean right. So there's water comes in. They are open to the ocean but yes. They're very calm. They're pretty large. I don't know. I don't even know how big they are. But they're big. It's not like people. Yeah and you can rent boats and sailboats. And a few things in there it can take a lot of people and then there's other upscale resorts at the neighbors of alani and there's four of these lagoons and you can walk along the waterfront the rest of the waterfront there sorta rocky so that's probably why was undeveloped in the past and then disney came along and somebody figured out. Hey we can make nice beaches here if we put these little lagoons. So it is a true. Hawaiian beachfront resort. You can swim in the beautiful pacific ocean. It faces the sunset which is really nice. But if you're going to hawaii and if you're going to alani in particular there are many other as ing beaches on oahu. Don't always need to go in a volcano. Guess you don't need to go. What is oh. Amelia wrote a song as a kid going to hawaii in volcano which would be the big island of hawaii not on oahu. But if you're going to oahu and you're going to alani it's a beautiful beach Franck resort will get into all the rest of it and another episode because es cell using storm along. Bay is a good waterpark. Alani puts it to shame. But we're going to save that for a future episode. Pure here for storm. Along is now an official disney waterpark. A resort it sort of water park for among resorts compared to any other pool. That is you know typically pool with a slide. It's pretty much a waterpark. There's a lazy river there. there's a beat anyway. we're not talking about disney's beach club resort. We're talking about disney's true beach resorts on the ocean. But if you go to alanine. You're in hawaii definitely rent a car because there are some amazing beaches around the island and we have three favorites. Yes when we were there and the one one is why of course the north shore's famous the banzai pipeline. Wia me a base of drive to that beach. Any of these things are an hour to ride real easy day trips to go to the beaches and then i call the surfing beach surfing. Beach is kylie loa beach. If that's how you pronounce it pronouncing these the lower something. It's just back on the way back towards honolulu about halfway. There may be and yet. It's it's a real true. Hawaiian bichon little campground part. If you wanna take surfing lessons there it's great. There's great lessons there. The waves are consistent. It's a true open. Beat quite amazing. Little kids surfing. Yeah amazing little kids. Maybe we'll post a picture of usurping on that beach as part of this social media for this episode so that that one's really close great spot to go surfing and then across on the other side of the island is kahlua which is a really cool little town right on the water and they have a really neat beach there too so chi loo beach the north shore and kellyanne lower beach. I think that's how you say it. I may be saying wrong but you'll find it. Those are three awesome beaches. Plus you do have a beach rate at your resort. A nice quiet beach like amelia said. The water's warm there. It's very calm tons of beach chairs. it's it's fairly large semi circle shape. Check it out on a google earth map and you'll see so that is out of ninety eleni hawaii and then another one we talked about. They will be disney's vero beach resort. And i don't know this might actually be my favorite beach if we're talking strictly about the beach hotel. I'd have to say personally. I prefer the air disney's vero beach resort beach than the alani beach lie because it is truly wide open to the ocean. You can't even serve there either. You can on windy days. We have seen people surfing there. You can definitely bougie board there quite a bit. But i'm going to get in just like we did with lonnie there's other beaches nearby but at vero beach resort the beach is you know you're just on the coast there on vero beach so it extends hundreds of miles but there's rarely it's rarely what i would call crowded. No sometimes in the mornings we go on beach walks and watch the sunrise and get bitten by no see'ums. We talked about that in our verbiage. Episode. this is what. I was alluding to earlier if you want to know. More about. The resort in the area listened to that episode a few back but the beach itself. We didn't really focus on and there is a beach house. there where you can rent watercraft sailboats. But you can bring your own boogie boards and you surf and you're within range of bringing a surfboard. It's your subject to the winds really. It's wind driven surf there. It's not nash. Natural surf break but the beach itself has filled with tons of shells and highlight to look for shark teeth. It's weather dependent so days. It's actually quite calm other days. It's very rough. So i liked that personally. I like those open

"Angle right here and to ensure that it translates for my kids your your machines and they were so nice about it they. They took time for them. This wasn't a free thousand piece run that they were putting productions sensibly to this was my thing that i wanted to ensure was the way i wanted to be and they were very gracious about it. Reworked through the design process of that impulse. I learned a lot about how to work with manufacturer is taking a design normally. It would be my designs that i would go into production with a way that i work before. This was my cat to their pad for of air system doing that. Sometimes there's there's some some mangoes loss in the design. And i've seen that in other nice And i wanted to ensure that did not happen here. And when i got the nice in micro type in my hand it was exact knife that i designed and i was very very pleased to see that happen. it seems like you can If you have the wherewithal for all the back and forth communication is seems like when everything's still exists in the cad world. That's obviously the time to make design tweaks and changes and to really engage in that sort of design dialogue once fixtures are made and a prototype is produced and all that. How easy is it from there to make changes. It seems like a lot more is invested at that point. I was lucky because this was a passion project for me. This wasn't this wasn't something that i needed to feed my kids so i needed. Get it in to production. You know fine do it that way and just get it. Get it in get it out. I wanted. I wanted the exact that i wanted. I was fortunate. I love my day job. I you know is able to provide for my family. I was able to have these nice produce mostly because my friends right. I want one. So i wanted one. I put it. I had these small batch produce that batch had to be perfect it had to be right. There were there. They were actually worse problems with the prototype. That guy got kind of Kind of missed. Actually they made the The middle pocket go through the entire brady through the oversights best tech knew that and they actually the person that did the wire cutting for their for their for for the blades for the types just assumed that was pocket all the way through. Because that's what everybody doesn't grant hill slot like that in their live so again. It was just something that when i got. It was unfortunate. That was something that i gave them the option to have reproduce or having tackle replay show so again i just had a But those are the types of things that no it had to be right for production on the flip was different on the prototype. I changed it you know. Fortunately i had access to a grinder. I able to Change the way that the flipper tab function. How felt on on your an and moved into production with the the nights that i wanted to produce so then described the your evolution from going from passion project that your friends kind of already preordered to taking the dive into vero engineering and taking the dive into producing knives for people. You've never met. You know more people than you know. Yeah so that was a very recent transition. I love my job. I don't think. I think i've been pretty clear about that throughout this episode interesting. I'm you know. I really. I loved worked with. I love the work that we did. I knew that. If i made this correct it was going to save people's lives. It was going to help people. That's pretty awesome. Feeling i mean you know not a lot of people say that but in doing that i was also able to design. Get my creative outlet you know. Get my while. I was able to solder things. I was able to do stuff. I didn't want to leave. But they're the writing was on the wall. My my synapse so my first nine impulse sold out in the first night. I don't that's you know who's never made it. Mike before ending their first design sells out on launch preorder. My second mike was the s. That one sold out Within the first day then the impulse many came out that sold out the on sold out the accidental that mike nine twenty minutes which was insane. The next night sold out in six i. It was one of the things like. I can't pretend that i like. I can't pretend. I could do this on the side i. I didn't want work wonder a year from then you know what it could have been in where i could have taken it So november last year Had a conversation with my wife And within a month we both quitter jobs and went full force of your owner. Your wife quit her job to in jumped in yup yet. It's a weird thing to say. That twenty twenty was twenty. Twenty was what it was and we tried to make the best of it. I was running. Twenty was an awesome year for you. Joseph it's all right to say twenty twenty one year for me so she was working as a teacher. She was a science teacher. Didn't wanna quit her job. She loved her job as a teacher. but it it made sense for us to kinda just put all our eggs in one basket. I knew that. If i was going to do the things that i wanted to do with this company progress the designs in the brand the way that i was really hoping we could. I was gonna need your help That turned out to the one of the best decisions we ever made. I love working wife..

"Four. Why my knives kind of became started out the way that it that being said. Another thing is e citing sloppier. I like i've owned a bunch of spider goes. I think there are phenomenal knives. And i said to myself if i ever designed a knife you better be able to middle finger. It and this one is very satisfying to the zoos. That's such a clean designed. Joseph how did you come up with all sorts. know when i was Setting you up. I sophisticated. You have a sophisticated. I i guess that's kind of a way of saying that your designs clean but they they seem obviously obviously from someone who loves knives told me a little bit about your collection in how that those knives have inspired some of your designs so may say that spider code designs design. Aesthetic is different and i would agree with that. They're you know. Some of their designs are or function over form. I think or you know. Maybe it's something is i found. They're designed super functional. I love logger designs And i love how they fit your hand. I loved that they just became an extension of your hand and they work and they work really well. They did what they were supposed to do with. They set out to do with at night and they did that very very well. I wanted to ensure that mine is even though they may just in my mind be clean anesthetic. Were still functional So i i learned a lot of that from cider and from a lot of the nights that i own from them. Otherwise that i've owned. I know a lot of people are going to cringe when i say this i owned. A lot of strider is Strider knives were zero fro all function. I loved how robust they were I love how simple they were. You know i'm bearings person. I love all of my nice ceramic barons firm defense. they all are dropping. Is you have to be careful. Will you will start itching. A lot into your thumb now but the strider knives works and they work very well so so those kind of things. I want to ensure that even though might design look very good in cat and hopefully looks good in instagram coke posts. Because let's be honest. A lot of stuff really is just manual route. I want to ensure that they were. They were aesthetically pleasing. A clean designed and functional. So that's why did a lot of the protests Prototyping that i did. I wanted to make sure that my fingers fell exactly where i want them to fit in my hand exactly the way that i wanted to sit there were few hot. Sauces hospitals are kind of inevitable with anything that you do. But i wanted to make sure that it did fit. Well i personally like to choke up high on the night and put my points here so that i can do some nice spying our regret but also if you walk so you can you can move back on. Put your two things in this room here and it just it just fits your hand and you feel like you have a nice perch aside and you can do the tasks that you want to so again. The the the the functionality knife is really going through the the prototyping stages that i had and ultimately with that sack who produces. They manufacturer nice. That was a big thing for me. Also but like i said sex super important. Let's the nobody wants to put an ugly knife in their instrumentals. So a lot of the nights that i own previously chris rees i think has one of the most aesthetically beautiful knives that were grid is as just an almost perfect. Look so i. I want to ensure that that was also thesis as well. Yeah you can tell about how someone feels about knife especially a special knife Like the kind you make by how they by the verb they use is. Are they going to carry this today. Are they gonna wear it. I catch a lot of people on our our lives. Thursday show like When i do pocket check today. I was wearing my such and such to me. That's like what you said. It's like jewelry. I was today was wearing my vero impulse. You know Yes so. I i think that says something about aesthetics are incredibly important. But you look at your knives you you've been holding up the impulse. I'd like to check out some your others also but but to look at them They have a a classic look to them. They also seem quite sturdy and stout and when you mentioned strider. I guess i guess some people bristle at strider a that's all mean. I have some idea what that's all about. But i i can cleanly divorce that from the knives themselves and i think they're awesome. I love them n. Since you mentioned that. I i i. I'm not even gonna say that i see and influence but something about the handles. I see it like it's a solid that handles you design with that big center. Swail too big solid handle. You know so. It's a lot to hold onto so it's not just elegant but it also looks like you can hold it and really horse it through some material. Yeah right exactly so. The complete opposite side of that is a smaller date year. Nice with a kid who now so my second mike was the the snatch the person you saw was the the impulse which has a tanto i really wanted to moving a jock late with overlays so might the second life was the here Which also has the The middle pocket and the same foot metabol- top for living. It works really well on a smaller like this as well. Sometimes a clippers have doesn't work for larger waves and sometimes it doesn't work for smaller weights on so i was very happy that this works. It's really well on. Yeah exactly so they will do it a pinkie as well And get a pinky and get a satisfying flip out of. It is very sensitive. So let me ask you. This does having having that same flipper work in both a small blade in the large blade kind of means it's crew across the platforms. You're working in. Does that mean that. That's a sort of slam dunk part of the design process. Like okay i know. I know that this part works. So i don't need to worry about that so much anymore. It's all these other things.

The lights tend to be on the highway or the other side so sometimes the turtles will go the wrong way get crushed cars to really sad so they have a very good policy and reminders. Closing have heavy duty curtains for a night closure curtains if you have a room facing the beach because they don't want any light so the beach is pitch-black black. They really don't want you on the beach at night for that reason because of the turtles unless you're doing like a tour for the most part people obey then the beach for the sake of the turtles but they do have the turtle walk. And that's what amelia's talking about and it was amazing. We got those marines like true high quality night vision goggles that you put on and the want night vision. They use red flashlights.

"Stave from cheap wine, fighter dot. com. With another wind today. We've just put on the cheap wine finder dot com website. We have eleven, years reviews all basically affordable lives and this one is a red blend from. Columbia Valley. From tamarack cellars, they're they're basically a Bow Take style, single vineyard kind of. Kind of winery but this is their firehouse red blend. It's twenty seventeen. and. It's got to be collected group of grapes. There's a whole bunch. There's Grenache. Merlot and Soviet, Blonde Gannett remember all of them. There's others two percent of this whom wide was coon winder send your basic for though. I think carbonate Ron. There's just a ton of different grapes, percentages and some very. Precise blend which I have like. Some blends you know there, you can't tell one grape, the other you just tastes good but you don't really. Case, individual grapes this when you, I think you Kinda I. I quite honestly don't know taste like. A blending grape from the Rhone Valley. have before, but in a blend, so I couldn't tell you and there's all these different flavors coming in through there like each one even though there's two percent of this three percent of that in the main grape has thirty, three percent and twenty, seven percent. There is no, you know this isn't like seventy percent one in a bunch of other this is really a blend. And it's their individual flavors and there's You. Know there's some of this and there's some of that I'm gonNA take a SIP. And it's. Really a good taste. There's a lot of flavor going on. And it's not just a simple wine. It is Kinda smooth on the palate with their art art things and there are challenging flavors but mostly, it's really good tasting. Because there's sours they're spicy and. There's rounded fruit. This is a really good bland I. Mean I think it's about fifteen bucks I think I've found it on sale around fifteen. And It's very precise I mean you don't add two percent of this rape and two percent of that grape unless you really really wanted in there I asked. Winemaker one time while they put one percent. Everything you add changes something you know they put it in there because they want it and there. And the OAK program the used A. Forty Percent New Oak sixty percent second and third Phil. Mostly French and American with some hung Gary O'Connor. Burian and French are pretty much the same species Americans. Different each give off different flavors. In. Every time you use Vero, the barreled gives off a little less oak. So it's forty percent new oak, which you get the full flavor, and then you get a little bit less and they do that to get the wine because this is basically a drink wine you take it home Newton, drink it. You can put it away for five or six years if you have the means to do that, but you don't have to do that. And they get the flavor exactly right where they wanted to be when it's ready to be released, which is two thousand, seventeen model. So that's what that is. This is a very good. What's at? Tamarack cellars by our house. Red Blend. It kinda sounds rustic and a little bit is a has a little rough edges has some smoothest to it it's kind. Yeah.

Why Stage 3 Lockdowns Were Successful, but Not Quite Enough in Victoria
"And so we're saying. Shutdowns happening in Victoria a lots of industries are being closed down or restricted in a really dramatic way. What's the purpose of these additional restrictions? Victoria's large number of people who were you don't know where the coffee infection from the figures a reasonably stable, but they're growing a bit. So the R value is above one. So you've just got it's bouncing around is probably just growing. But you're getting these cases accumulating and there's no sign of it being turned around and that means it will just keep on going like this forever if you don't do something about it, and essentially what you've got to do is stop the transmission of virus where you don't know who's got it. You don't have who are symptomatic and spreading it. You don't where the sources are robin going out and hunting them down, which is impossible to do. You just keep people in their homes don't allow them to circulate and those viruses will disappear from their bodies over the. Two weeks, and hopefully, they won't be exposed to new virus so that you can get quite a dramatic reduction over a two to three week period even with quite large numbers, this victorians have been doing it tough for a while now, like the sage three restrictions already pretty tough for a lot of people did the state three file or was it just not working fast enough well, last night on seven thirty I covered study from the Burnett. And what they've shown looking from the first of July on is that at the beginning of July, the are not the fate of reproduction number in other words, the number of people that you spread it to for every ten people. There were spreading it to just seventeen people seventeen and a half people. That's a significant growth prior to that in some of the hot spots in Melbourne, it was too. So every ten people were spending it to twenty people. So. What's happened with the state's three restrictions and masks on top they don't actually know the fate of masks yet is that now at the end of July or at the end of July, tain people were passing it to just over eleven people. So that's quite a dramatic reduction that equates to twenty thousand infections in the state of Victoria avoided in July and perhaps three or four times as many deaths and people in hospital. So extraordinary number and just shows you what happens when you divert from. Exponential growth when you got exponential growth, you go from very small numbers to very large numbers very quickly, and because that was almost doubling, and now you've got a steady state or slight growth there but you're static that it may go down a little bit more with masks, but it's too early to see the effects of them doesn't that just paint a picture of how Vero not virulent but how contagious these viruses and just I mean it's it's it's a real win for the people of Victoria. Be heartening to stood of. This is what we avoided, and so we haven't been able to eliminate the spread what we've done. So we need to go further but shortly, we can count that as a partial win a partial a huge win twenty, thousand people who don't have infection whoever, and then then that twenty thousand would have just kept on growing very large numbers. The fact that it's a small population of the United States doesn't matter. You can still go to various large numbers of small population very quickly, and that's what's been averted by that stage. Three but now going to these new levels of restrictions. So if you if you're able to bend the curve to that extent in a month, you should be able to really dramatically bend downwards to below one in other words for every ten people who are infected maybe seven eight get infected. Say comparing the numbers that we've been seeing each day in the hundreds. What would we have been saying if we hadn't had these restrictions over memory, the Burnett paper showed that on the day where there were over seven hundred infections in Victoria. If they hadn't been staged three locked on there would been three or four thousand cases on that day. So it's
Achievement Vs. Fulfillment: Which Do You Want More?
"Right so. He has no last week at Lake POW with my family, and we had an amazing relaxing vacation, which is really good problem with the entrepreneurial brain. US EP entrepreneur personality types. When we try to relax, we can't and it drives US crazy. Because we gotta be moving forward momentum, right and so. I started thinking about projects and things I wanna to do things that are fun and like. I know some years know that I am working on eventually writing next book, which could be the bootstrap book Tunnicliffe Story, but the problem is Cleveland Stories and that done. Yes I. Don't know where it's going to go or source was kind of like this things in the back burner that I'm going to do someday. It's not a huge rush. But I'm excited for that, but I was like I almost any something fun to be creating right like I dunno, as a creator, I need to create sure has the same way right and and I'm creating. You know we have the New Tacoma Quebec's coaching programs creating a lot of fun i. want something just. Excited enjoy this is fun and lighthearted deadlines or thing just to create to create right. It's all I had an idea. For Project, I'm going to tell you the details, the name or anything. Other than it's, it's going to be the one and only time I ever talk about personal development. Anyway, right marketing guy that's. Sick with but obviously I've had access to a lot of people. Most people have access to in this world and its lifetime, and had a chance to learn from some amazing people and. Wanted to create this thing I don't know what it's GonNa. Be I duNNo, if it's a real book of it's like a book feminine, just giving away for free as the lead magnet, I have no idea. But. The title I'll tell you. The subtitle subtitle is the science of achievement. The art fulfillment in Vero Tony Robbins Talk. He talks about a lot of times to master masters signs of achievement where the had know the science and how to achieve anything, and then you have to master the art of fulfillment and funny, because he talks about a lot of times, but always struggle with that personally. Because he doesn't go deep into the whole thing you know, and so at Lake Powell this week thinking about this sure thing about the art and the science. And the science of treatment is lost. If I talked about anyway, you know here's the step-by-step, I? Here's the things you need to do things in this order and you have success, but the article films I personally struggle with like I'm such an achiever. I want to this this this and you. What's next on each next thing the next thing he moving towards? Running towards this this invisible goal that we don't really know what it is. I think a lot has producers and entrepreneurs and people like me and probably you. With the film, and like, how do you feel fulfilled and cinching? Is that the article film? It's tough because it's like art. It's not like the science sciences like here's the things to do to get the thing like this art fulfillment and I've always struggled and so as I was thinking about putting together this project. I started thinking about that and I started. Just think signs of cheating. My brain goes GonNa Mike Okay. I'm Jim achiever. Boom here's the thing. But then I started realizing that like the the the path of achievement the article film. It's almost the opposite like a union being and I served Rosina's like. Oh my gosh, they're looking deeper. Different topics have been concepts I was like. Oh, my gosh is true and so many things. Then you realized before so for example. This example shared kind of help s even what I'm. I had. Everyone talks about morning routines right. If you follow any of the fitness, guys, a health and fitness, the bio hackers the the entrepreneurs they all talk about you gotTa have more routine Tina's structure and things like that? You GotTa wake and you gotTa know. This always seems right. Talked about morning and starts accusing to do before you go to bed to increase your sleep patterns in all sorts, and and that's very scientific writes the science of achievement like do you want to have more success? You create habits. Can Habits been creating a routine thirteen? You stick the routines I think that outcome and eventually you have success, right and other big believer that actually so I'm making fun of by any stretch. It is part of the. The the science of Chiba having that right so if you by the way struggled achieving things in the past, maybe because you don't have. Scientific like you just do these things and the outcome happens just magic. It! Just it just works. So there's a science of the problem though is, is it doesn't create fulfillment. Stickney for second I did a podcast about this six months ago or something. I was in I was in. I was in Puerto Rico with brand new Bouchard big. Bunch people and one of the guys there there's getting create. Clements and Craig was We're sitting there and he started talking about. Our brains where he said you know a lot of. Older. Years of getting shorter wait times flying rallies, and actually true, so the reason why is because your brain looks for patterns of the same thing happening over and over and over again deletes them. because. It's like I. don't even remember this because dude. Every single morning we do see every single week every single thing. As, we said he said so literally, your brain is deleting nothing's happening, and so your life seems shorter because it literally is shorter because those memories, it's like Hey, every morning from nine from seven ten, the same things under remember this because the same deleted, and so because you use five hours in your memory every day and see life years go faster days go faster faster and your life goes faster. He said that the problem is he's like he's like. If you. If you want to extend you, know, extend time You have to create called him event horizons! PODCAST? Talk a lot about him, but it was interesting because he's like this mastermind group in the very first year we did it. We all in Wyoming would flew helicopters shotguns. We rode horses. It was crazy right and he was like I was an event. Horizons remember that experience for the rest of my life is the second year master. Makina Puerto, Rico it was amazing. Place. It was amazing. Is this is year? Three and we're in Puerto Rico is. I can have an amazing time. Basically, the problem is is this experience is so similar to lash. Most of it's going to get deleted from my memory, and it's just GonNa be on. Our brain will just lead because it's like Oh, this is routine done. This before is like you lose that and I think he was trying to get us to do some crazy night. 'cause he's like when you criticize horizon right now and he wanted to I can't remember what the thing was. We had some crazy thing like to stick this in our brains. We don't lose moment of this experience because it's it's. It was so similar to think before and horizon, start thinking. I'm like. Oh, my Gosh, like if you think about these things, this is the union the Yang of of fulfillment half of. The are the the science of achievement in the article. In the game because if you want, do you want to cheat me? When she the thing you need to create structure and routine and the singer where you just do the things that create the result at the end. Is, you do that, and so because boom towards you're getting achievement, right with problems, your brains lean section every single day and I'll send your your days. Your lives words. You're not fulfilled. You're not getting the article film that because of that, and so the article film is the opposite. It's the literal opposite of this first thing right it. Is You coming in? In, saying we're not going to do routine, we have to do these crazy things with extensive life extensive happens. We fill fulfillment in the moment, and it's the scene in the Yang

Music & AI with Pablo Samuel Castro of Google Brain
"Am here at nerves continuing my coverage and conversations from the thirty third nerves conference and I am seated with Pablo awesome. Well Castro who is a staff research software developer at Google Pablo. Welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you thank you very much for having me. This is a real pleasure to be here. Awesome thanks so much. I am really excited to jump into this conversation. You are someone that I follow on twitter. And like we've had these kind of back in occasional occasional back in overtime and it's great to finally meet you in person. you've got some pretty varied interests You spend a lot of time. You're research focus on reinforcement learning. You also tweet a lot about music and arts. Looking at your background you've done applied l. l. stuff at Google on ad from and other things you know. Tell us the story like how to all these threads come together So well originally. I'm from Ecuador and they moved to Canada after high school to to come study at McGill So eventually I did. My undergrad in the navy actually actually did my masters and PhD St at McGill with throwing a pre-cup and garden and so part of the reason why stayed in Montreal and McGill was for personal reasons. I had I was dating someone. WHO's now my wife and I also yes and I also had a band so I've always always been heavily involved with music? I grew up with music. Learning music. Play music so that was very important to me and I didn't WanNa leave that so I decided to make that choice. I know it's not typical thing that suggested to do while you're in the same university but for me. It was more important to to play music so I graduated. Did I finished my PhD at around two thousand eleven and then I moved to Paris post doc and this was at a time where a isn't what we see here with twelve thousand people in this conference. In Europe's didn't have back. Then it was called Nips maybe four thousand people So I WANNA say Nakajima and I was working at the intersection that was very theoretical between between Markov decision processes and form over vacation so I was finding it really hard to find a job because I wasn't former fixation enough for the former vacation community and I was I wasn't reinforcement learning enough for the reinforcement learning. Okay and so after my post doc I I just feared already have two young kids. And if you're that I would speak going post the post stop for too long so I luckily got up from from Google doing applied machine learning and adds an extra said goodbye. Getting at that point I stopped reading papers and faster fast. Then I did a little quick stint in chrome doing a building machine learning infrastructure so backend infrastructure And Brain opened up in Montreal and mark. Belmar are who I had done. My masters with he was he kept in research. He was in decline for a while and he was one of the first people to join brain in Montreal and he put in a good word for me and So then they. They offered me to join them and I jumped up that possibility and I hadn't been following the research. That also is a huge shock to come back. I I mean when I was doing my research. We were all working on Grit worlds and in pretty simple environment because a lot of it was theoretical. We didn't really use deep networks at all for enforcement or any now so it was a lot of catchup trying to to familiarize myself with the literature and how the whole landscape has changed so throughout all this time I always kept with music. I had a a few different bands. Always I've always been performing live and writing music and The other thing is when I started my PhD. I was actually considering doing a PhD with Douglas AC as as well as with During a pre cup in something with machine learning and music but at the time the what was available for music generation didn't really excite me very much Because it was still in the early days and I fear that it would taint my love of music and I just want to keep my music site separate but when a rejoined the research world and I saw with the Magenta team was doing I was kind of blown away by by the quality of of things then. I decided to also start going along that pathway pretty almost I think the day after I joined brain This artists from Canada. He's called David Usher. He's pretty well known in Canada. He approached us wanting to the other. He approached us that he was actually. I had abandoned the nineties called Moist and really popular and and he approached us. He wanted to do an album using like ai techniques and so we just Matton Kinda brainstorm then thing. He gravitated towards the most was lyrics and and So Google who was my manager at the time was Very generous because I had just joined bright. And he's like. Do you want to take this project because I like music as it sure. That sounds fun. I had never trained a language model. We're still trying to figure out all the steep networks because I hadn't looked at that but yeah google that gave me that opportunity and and I learned a ton and that project it's still it's still an ongoing project. So relative to the first model trained with David which we actually made a video out of that like he wrote one of his songs with the first prototype and it worked okay but the model we have now is so much better and I understand all of this language modeling so much better than they did before. And that's just ah that experience kind of showed me to not be afraid of stepping out of because even with reinforcement learning which is the background to step out of that comfort zone and go into two other areas that I'm not as familiar with because they're all interesting problems and really trying to dig into the details. And for me the way I learned the most is actually actually trying to implement some of these models architectures and play around with him because you read about them in papers and you kind of get it fine but until you're actually trying to get it to work for yourself it's that's a whole different experience and I've learned so much just from doing this like jumping from a one to the next in a separate can field and learning about those architectures architecture's but while still maintaining my research and reinforcement learning. Well it sounds like you've landed in an incredible place to do that. Not just kind of the resources of Google and the people that you're surrounded with and have an opportunity to interact with but your role seems to be defined as like advancing research. You know the implementation absolutely. Yeah so I'm a software developer like. That's my official title. There's also research scientists that Google and until recently there was still like most people that are in research wants to be research scientists. Because that's like then you're officially doing science So my like if I had graduated say four years after when I graduated likely would have been applying for research research scientist role Back when I google. That wasn't really a maybe Sammy. Benji was a research scientist but probably about it And so I entered Google ads syringe India and sort of advance my career in that in that track and when I joined Google it was a software engineer. Develop developing comebacks. 'CAUSE engineer you get an iron ringing. I don't have that Initially I was a little skeptical because the official description is your. They're more supporting research. Scientists and so. I was worried that I wouldn't don't have the flexibility to pursue my own research interests. But it's been not at all like that so I lead my own research projects and I still support a lot of people with the engineering aspects of it. Because I've been working on this a lot so I'm more familiar with Google infrastructure and just coating in general And it's been a lot of the major major advances that we see in machine learning the I nowadays a lot of his engineering. So there's of course there's still math and there's still a lot of theory behind it but a lot of engineering and and I don't think it I think more and more it is but Few years ago I don't feel like dot the credited. It really deserved and so living in the sort of intersection of of pure engineering and pure research is for me super exciting because I kinda get the playground in both worlds and learn from both when I've got a a long Melissa things that I wanNA talk to you about but you mentioned Something that's got me really curious. The you know what it means to evolve a language model so you started this project with David And came out with this early crappy language model and have evolved over some number of been like uh-huh Yeah No. It's been like a year and a half it's been or actually it's been almost like two years. I think since we started it but two years calendar calendar wise. But but it's not it's not one of my main project so yeah exactly so it's when I get a chance that I that I work. Yeah so as I said when I started this project I had never trained a language model. I like like I knew what else were studied in school. But so the first thing I did was I actually Andrea Sherr potty has the Yeah this famous blog post host The surprising reliability of of recur neural networks. Something like that thing. Anyway that blog posts and they got his Kodansha Jordan's are played around with it and that was the the Vero model. I'm just over characters and then I started tweeting that a bit and and finding new data sets for lyrics and that initial model that was basically a variant of Parties model was the initial model that I had and so that was okay. They just a milestone like okay was able to train. This actually get it to do what I wanted to do. But obviously was Has All the shortcomings that these types of models do the around around. I mean the the tension is all you need. Paper had come out not not Not Too much before then. And so then I started looking into these attention models and and so so it seemed like the right thing to switched over to to the transformer model and started playing around with that and so the V.. Two model was attention model and it's had various versions of a two part of the difficulty that had with the language with training. These language models on lyric status at is that the lyrics said is not the best in what sense so the tricky thing about these language models is that an end for lyrics in particular is that you're trying signed to get this model to learn English kind of so how how to structure English phrases together but in quote unquote poetic way and to not be boring doing right because you're trying to use it for creative purposes and you don't want it to be boring so we train this model and if you look at it like perplexity scores and things like that it was doing pretty well on this lyric status but but then when you actually look at the output. It was extremely boring so because in pop songs you have lines that repeat often. I mean that's just how songs written so the model would tend to just repeat the same thing over and over and over and It also had certain phrases that would keep on coming back to just had very high likelihood so I wonder if you've talked about this. I say like it's Hanway but the average pop line over the last six decades is you know that I'm the one and That one came up a lot and you can also get you know that I'm the one baby. So that's the average pop line. It was boring and so the interesting thing about working with with with David is that I build variants of these models and nitro him and one of the things he remarked on. Is that It was very nonspecific in the sense that at the nouns that it was using it wouldn't use proper nouns. So would you like me. You he she they since very kind of ambiguous. If you think of Like the Beatles mister mustard polythene pam jude. You know there's all these I mean the fictional characters but they're very canvas and so then you can sort of the ground the song song in something kind of real whereas if you're just talking about him like hey you don't don't even though pink. Floyd has a hate us

High school teacher, family on dive boat
"And in northern California school district as a high school physics teacher and child were on board that dive boat that caught fire off the southern California coast this week authorities say thirty four people are missing and presumed dead after the vessel sunk near Santa Cruz island early Monday here's sheriff bill brown sadly no additional survivors have been found. an additional sixteen victims were located and yesterday afternoon's efforts and were brought back to our corners vero. this makes in total twenty. Holmes who have been recovered and transported to our corners bureau. thus far the victims have only man identified as the eleven female and nine male remains. there were several other victims they were seen by the divers somewhere between four and six. that are still within the wreckage. due to the positioning of the boat they were unable to be recovered before nightfall. first we need to stabilize the boat so that divers can safely enter it searches and recover additional victims. divers also mapped a search area based on current and the debris field. which is about a half mile in size in our continuing efforts to recover edition all victims and evidence. the question was is it is it. ng is the the people who are below deck courts were trapped and unable to acces the the vessel and that does appear to be exactly what happened that the there was a stair well to get it right down the main entry way up and down and there was an escape hatch and it would appear as though both of those who were blocked by fire we do have statements that have been written by the crew members and the crew members will be interviewed formally today as part of the investigative process but since the investigation is on going I'm not at liberty to
‘Dorian Won’t Budge’: Bahamas Hammered by Slow-Moving Hurricane
"It's like a never ending storm in the northern Bahamas time Dave Anthony fox news hurricane Dorian still parked over head not moving at all. getting a lot of his chest for persons. IRA Lewis a member of parliament the Bahamas were at least five people are dead the salvation army estimates thirteen thousand homes destroyed the disaster isn't over so why is story installed as a category three with a hundred twenty mile an hour winds. basically have nothing to do with you along right now Richard heading is no was hurricane hunter flight director flying through the store near the I. you just told fox. over the next. four hours it will begin a very. the north. still expected to hug the coast not hit it big Georgia governor Ryan camp says we're still worried it may move in a direction that would not be good for us there are coastal areas evacuated from Georgia the Carolinas down to Florida fox's seven brown live in Broward county yeah Dave Dorian may not be moving on from the Bahamas just yet but it isn't very far from Florida's east coast maybe ninety miles or so and that's close enough says Val as soon as the mayor of vero beach because we had all those extra time people got a little handsy and now this the winds are common and I think people realize the storms here the good news is that they are telling us about twenty four hours of tropical storm force winds and then it goes away and those winds will get worse a good chunk of the Florida coast is under a hurricane warning it is also under a storm surge warning which could be as high as seven feet
Dorian Slams into Bahamas and Menaces Florida
"We begin with the breaking news. This hour hurricane dorian the massive deadly storm is now lashing the florida coast powerful winds whipping onshore conditions are getting worse with each passing hour and it is going to be hours upon hours and hours. This is from moments ago from melbourne beach. Florida mandatory evacuations are underway there. Let's show you the storm from the international space station a stunning picture three hundred miles wide right now winds up to one hundred and forty five miles an our the picture of the storms. I just tweeted by u._s. Astronaut onboard the space station so that is the i of dorian seen from space as that storm is essentially sleet stationary moving so slowly ravaging the bahamas which it has been doing us since it came ashore there as a category five storm thirty hours ago it it is the most powerful storm in known history to hit the bahamas decimating the islands. Thousands of homes and businesses are now gone. An entire island is without power tonight. It is way too early to have any sense of the death toll and to give you an idea of just how high the storm surge was what the united states could be looking. Eh you can see waves nearly reaching the second story of home. <hes> rescue crews are just starting the grim task of searching for signs of life among the piles of debris and it the scenes like this that has officials in florida pleading with people in evacuation zones. Were still there to get out of a team of reporters standing by from florida to the bahamas tonight. I want to begin with miguel marquez who is out front in vero beach florida gal. What are people eating the evacuation warnings yes and no there's most the people along. The coast here have evacuated along the way but this storm has been so slow. It's creeping so slowly towards us. We've had this same wind for most of the day to day that is south here at vero beach. We're on the barrier islands here. The sea has been quite rough about the same. We've gotten on some bands of wins but as you look north you can see it's sort of broken up is not quite as much wind and clouds on that end of it so you do. You have some people who are staying sort of coming here to watch see what's happening. Some people coming here to secure their homes before they get out. Most people say they they are. They are going to get out there waiting to see what's happening here. They're watching very closely. What's happening to the bahamas right now and they're all wondering when will make that right word. Turn will head north and if it doesn't if it wobbles toward shore people are concerned about that authorities saying look if you don't get out tonight by a two a._m. Tonight it will really start to come in <hes> in a very big strength here. If you don't get out before those winds hit forty five hours those those bridges to the mainland we'll be closed and you will have to ride it out here on the barrier islands aaron all right miguel marquez. Thank you very much. I wanna go as as miguel pointing. They're indicating getting down south. Just south of miguel stuart florida where brian todd is at this hour so <hes> brian <hes> you know as we understand it. You know it's sort of sitting there as it moves so slowly. What is happening conditions where you are conditions here. Erin are getting worse like they are. Mcgill is look at the storm surge here at this park in stuart stuart florida. The waves have been smacking up against the seawall here all day long. It has been getting worse and if you can see out here looks like a rain band another one of those outer rain bands is about to come in here. You're at seward. It's been like this all day. You'll get an really hasn't let up as far as the wind. The rain has come and gone with the wind has not let up and we are told that the wind is going to get much worse in the next say twelve hours or so here in stewart what also is a concern as you've got the confluence of three large bodies of water that have all been you know had the storm surge been bolstering them <hes> since i guess sunday <hes> where was in the bahamas that storm surge i has been affecting the atlantic ocean over here the indian river lagoon here and the saint louis river right over here. This is a confluence of those three bodies of water all of which have seen the storm surge really get stronger and that makes the flooding here the flooding danger here much worse in addition. We can tell you that right behind us. Here are barrier islands hutchinson island in jupiter island about thirty thousand. The people combined live on those islands. Some of them have gotten out there under mandatory evacuation orders but as you know even under mandatory evacuation they people cannot be forced from their homes. They are concerned though that the people who did not get off these islands are not going to be able to get help once the storm starts. They believe that they're not going to be able to get first responders to them. The bridges are going to be closed. Ridge is going to be too dangerous for first responders to pass over them and they're worried that people here in these barrier islands are going to get cut off for at least a couple of days erin all right brian todd. Thank you very much and let's get the latest now on doors path. Tom sater meteorologist is tracking the storm. So <hes> tom you know is <hes>. You know. You hear people saying well. Let's let's wait. Is it gonna wobble. Is it gonna turn. What is the forecast right now well. We're still hopeful that it's going to start to make that job to the north now and stay offshore but the the door is not closed on that yet the sun is setting and you can see it here in the visual imagery another harrowing night for those in the bahamas about seventy thousand of this northern islands three hundred hundred sixty thousand overall but they're without power communications probably without roofs we've heard of total decimation of homes and the inundation of heavy water and they're going to have a long night tonight it. It is stationary. It's not even moving one mile per hour now. We cover a lot of hurricanes and the c._n._n. Weather center typhoons and super typhoons of the pacific cyclones in the in the indian ocean. I've never seen one put on the brakes like this. Keep its power after traveling aaron. Seventeen hundred miles form barbados through is wobbling a little bit overnight last night. It went through what we call an eye wall replacement cycle. It can't sustain this energy so the eye wall opens up another band and then it contracts syndicates energy back but every time it does that those strong winds extend outward so the storm actually gets broader in its strength you you can see already some rain in the carolinas into florida. We've had some waterspouts. I wouldn't be surprised to see a tornado watch tonight or tomorrow for the eastern half of florida but but even when you get in freeport i mean this is only thirty two miles to the northeast of them. They have been getting a beating but they struck the strongest winds near the i. Maybe just away from them. I'm sure this has changed the coastline in the shape of it right now but what we're watching now of course the warnings have been extended north. Just south of jacksonville now watches her into the carolinas but coming up the second part of this show. I want to talk about the steering currents and what this means every ten fifteen twenty miles is critical. We we need to get that. Turn to the north and i think we may have something that's going to help us out and share it with you in just a little bit all right. Thank you very much. Tom is going to be back with us as we watch this and tom in a few minutes i wanna talk about four pierce one of the city's about to feel the impact a door and when you talk about these wide bands tom linda hudson you see her there the mayor of fort pierce here's joins me now. Live maher. I appreciate your time <hes> obviously the storm dangerously close to florida and so enormous that you have these impacts but so slow that you have some people saying well. I just wanna get a better sense of things. What is your biggest concern right now. Mayor i am concerned that people will not take it seriously we still even though it looks better for us. It's still going to be a serious effect on this area. The winds are going to be high and the storm surge is going to be high and we're concerned about flooding so and we're also wanting people to stay in their homes and not leave their homes until all the all clear so you know obviously you're going to have hurricane-force winds as you as you talk about the storm surge itself could be it could be incredibly deadly <hes>. Are you prepared right right now. Yes we are prepared and i will tell you that we've had lots of time to prepare. How many days have we had to prepare pair. So we feel really good about what we done and <hes> we're experienced at this and i know you can't prepare for every eventuality -ality but <hes> we have a great team that has had experience with matthew and experience with irma and we coordinate well within this county and and we've done the best we can with what we have and we're we're prepared so when darrow people you know who have not evacuated and we are you you know across florida where they're gonna be. Bridges are going to be closing down right. People are going to be stock and they could be stuck for days and if the storm <hes> you know you have a stationary storm like what's happening the bahamas it could be incredibly incredibly deadly <hes> for a loss of life. What is your message to people who have not yet heeded evacuation warnings so they shelter in place ace. They've made that choice and most of them should know the dangers. The dangerous are <hes> when the winds get above forty five miles per hour first responders cannot come and rescue them and so that message is always clear and <hes> we have seven hundred people in shelters right now who heated that message and in a vacuum but couldn't leave but a lot of people left a lot of people left friday saturday and sunday so <hes> the ones that are sheltering in place they know the risk a- and <hes> we're we're all in this together all right. Thank you very much more

They're mostly saturday afternoon or saturday evenings <hes> but i can all my gosh i can totally imagine getting married there air on the on the lawn somebody get married on the law and it was beautiful <hes> they have have receptions face right there and that's a big difference between the the hilton head island resort in vero beach is very beach does not have a table service restaurant. They don't have any type of conference space or anything of that nature where hilton head to our where vero beach does <hes> so that was really cool. We did the character breakfast on saturday morning <hes> and they have that in their their ballroom like their their conference center so that was really cool that was with a goofy and donald that was a lot of fun or more reasonable than what you're gonna find signed character breakfasts over walt disney world resort and the character interaction was really fantastic. Oh my god when i went goofy sat at our table and hung on us yup the coolest thing question goofy was doing night dances with the boys and they absolutely love that donald was playing rock paper scissors with the kids. That was so much fun you don't you just don't find that that type of of longer interaction over at walt disneyworld busy world but then the crowd vero beach was was lower so they were able to spend more time we donald came back to our table. Probably two or three times and goofy came back at least twice exc so so so much fun. It's such a relaxed atmosphere. <hes> even i'm the type who likes to go. Go go go go when i'm on vacation it it really kind of pushed me to sit back and relax and that was that was much needed. There's a full spa offered their and they have massage. They have have manicures pedicures whole nine yards. All of that stuff is available and then they also also have the disney discovery club which is for kids ages four to twelve <hes>. That's kind of like a night out. It runs about thirty dollars per child <hes> <hes> but also includes the price of dinner crafts <unk> titties all sorts of stuff like that. I think it was probably eh one of my favorite relaxing vacations that i've done. It's yeah it was amazing like it's crazy to me too because it's not not like you would think it you know right. It's place nothing eight. Yes two hours. It's about an hour forty minutes. Turn our south of cape canaveral so if you're sailing out on disney cruise line i could very easily see going over and spending a night or two at vero beach prior to a disney cruise or even following a disney cruise rather than going to walt disneyworld and then going on the cruise line i would we'll we'll highly recommend that to clients ed's when we checked in. They were offering.

"Knocking on line with me. And we welcome Dan Diker, Dan is the author of the brand new right in my hands, very upsetting study. But it's necessary to understand the turmoil in the US associated with the dias, and the turmoil worldwide, the book is entitled the pack. They deception pack p stands for Palestinian academic and cultural boycott of Israel, BBS, unmasked, Tara links and political warfare, masquerade as human rights Dana's, foreign policy, fellow and senior project director of the program to counter political warfare and BBS at the drew some center for public affairs. Dan, a very good evening to you, the San Diego tragedy the nineteen year old who to my reading of his background had no connection whatsoever to Palestinians and semitic activity cults Neo Nazis. And yet his conduct first attacking a mosque. And then walking in and murdering people murdering a person trying to murder more in a synagogue does. That event does that nineteen year old have a connection to BBS in some fashion. I note that he was a college student. Good evening to you that good evening to you. John navy, alcohol gentleman. What one needs to keep in mind is that anti-semitism as expressed through VDI warfare has been the subject of Vero and anti Israel, anti Jewish state. A poisonous incitement to murdering Jews in Israel, Jeremy Corbyn, the head of the British opposition has stated recently that it is permitted to hate the quote, hate Jews in Israel, and that type of incitement against the Jewish collective that today as Jewish state for decades has created in the United States a poise. Minute firemen that that would suggest to too many or to some that would want to assault Jews that it would be legitimate do that because it has been legitimate and mainstream unfortunately in in the west and Europe and the United States to call Israel to brand Israel as Nazi state apart type state a channel. I will KENDALL state and therefore any type of behavior subsequent to that. Nobody later would be justified. So that filters down even to the extreme right as well as we know is being generated by the extreme left. So the unfortunately the result of that type of site -ment at Myrtle is murder. And what about the connection to to the terrorist entities to the Palestinian Authority to others? We've seen reported about some of the funding coming from Europe to support beady s what are the connections and the linkages? Well, Malcolm, what what we have revealed in the book, the pack deception on mass is that the the national committee, and the pack behind its partner, the pack the Palestinian Akkad, I can culture boycott of Israel. Are not grassroots US and European based peaceful networks in order to establish a Palestinian next Israel. They're really a political warfare terrorist supporting network that is based in Ramallah largely in revolt the Palestinian Authority, and and they are and they are run by individuals that sit together with five designated Islamic and Palestinian terror organization as designated by the United States government and European Union. We're talking about this topic Jihad Palestinian Popular Front for the liberation of Palestine the moss. Pay F A F L P general command and the Palestinian Liberation these. These terrorisation are co equal members of the BTF committee in Ramallah, and that means that the media DVD as as a as a concept, and as a campaign is. Is a terrorist supporting political warfare campaign designed originally by motivated by our five continued by others in the pillow. With one express intention, and that is to dismantle the Jewish state by all means including violence and terrorism as well as political economic worser, we've learned follow the money. Is there a quick way to talk about who's paying for this, Dan? Well, we do know NGO monitor headed by professor garrels has done a superb job and following the money on political warfare organizations masquerading as human rights organizations, and we do know that Unfortunately, European countries have been have been funding a lot of the political warfare organization like and Sabil invol-. And that is what? Are referred to by probe ES warfare activists as human rights organization. These types of organizations, our our political warfare organizations that are largely funded by of these European. Hey, we also now there is also that you're on. And Dr are are behind these organizations bear in mind that tap me. The Palestinian cultural visual also has a Gaza based operation that is run by in academic their political warrior called Heidar eat, he sits on the PDF national committee, and he is their Gaza. A senior activists in God. And we know that HAMAs. Thanks has this type of behavior and girly receiving fifteen million dollars a month from cutter and a lot of this money. Is fun people at his going to fund political warfare activities on the Israel border. And and activities are parallel activity to type of heavy received coming out of the so-called civil society, political warfare organizations, even remote, we should be clear that we're not told me about legitimate concerns criticism been Israeli policy that this is much more fundamentalism to the core is blatant anti-semitism. And this is a tool that they have chosen to use in fact today against the state of Israel as the collective Representative Jews. Then today it was revealed in Israel. I think that that they've used box now to try to start a campaign where again revision Dan correctly, we have thirty seconds. What about these bonds these bonds were these bought for field today in an unprecedented report by Israel ministries for a shares revealed for the first time through intelligence research that the euro visit that the? Pack. Be organization has been at fraud using these types of former Soviet type of warfare instrument in order to create the no sit around the world through. Fake of social media that your vision should be boycotted say, all right? So Botts, Dan Diker. And Adam say, the authors of the new book, the pack deception Palestinian academic and cultural boycott of Israel, Malcolm Hoenlein. I'm.
