Coming up, we're gonna have Rob Mahoney talking after the two Thursday night TNT NBA games. We're gonna react to basically everything we've seen for the last three days. Just things that have jumped out to us. And then Peter Schrager is gonna come on and talk about the NFL. Do we have a best team? What are we noticing through seven weeks? What can we expect in week eight that will lead to million dollar picks? And that is today's podcast. Let's bring in our friends from Pearl Jam. Here we go. All right, we're taping this. It's almost 10 o 'clock on Thursday night, Pacific time. Rob Mahoney is here from The Ringer NBA and showing TheRinger .com. We stayed up late because these were two good games. We've had three straight days of very entertaining basketball and we gotta start with the biggest story. Kelly Oubre in the Sixers. What a signing that was, he looks great. No, we just watched LeBron versus the Suns. LeBron's 29 minute limit I think is out the window. He played the whole fourth quarter. And then made the two big head down just going to the basket plays at the end. But biggest thing that's jumped out to you in the last three days is what? Lakers wise or just in general? In general. I think a lot of these teams that we expect to be really good clearly have some assembly required. And the Lakers are one of those teams. I think we saw that from the Bucks and the Sixers tonight too. We're seeing it certainly with the first days of the Victor Webinama experience. Everyone is getting up to speed into their rhythms, trying to understand how all these new pieces fit together. Not revelatory for the opening days of the season to feel that way, but I think even some of the stuff that personally I thought was going to be seamless, like the Giannis, Dame pick and roll, there's some kinks in it that they're going to have to figure out over time. Lakers I thought were the one that surprised me on that one because I thought they were one of the teams that were going to have the advantage coming in. You think about last year's team compared to this year's team. It doesn't seem like Reeves is involved enough either game that, I don't want to say he's an afterthought, but it just felt like he was more in the mix in the playoffs last year. And I liked what Schroeder did for them last year and he was good on Toronto last night and really fit in with what they did. So they're going to have to figure out that Vincent D 'Lo thing. Wood was playing crunch time, which I was really surprised. Did you think we'd be getting this much Christian Wood? I thought that was like a flyer for them. Guarding Kevin Durant on some possessions, wild stuff. But if nothing else, we can trust that when Christian Wood is out there, he will be Christian Wood. In these uncertain times, we can always fall back on that. He certainly had his fair share of like black hole kind of possessions in this game, but he also does play into the Lakers advantages in terms of their length, right? Their size against a team like Phoenix, they're just going to be able to out muscle, get to rebounds, get to balls that they can't get to. So that part of it paid off, I thought in terms of just like having another big out there and certainly the Anthony Davis experiment continues as far as like, do you want more size with him? Do you want to play small with him? There's always that internal question because he seems a little reluctant to do it on a full -time basis, but I'm sure Christian Wood's going to get his shots. I mean, clearly Jackson Hayes is going to get some shots in the rotation to be a meaningful part of the Lakers, the mix there for the Lakers. So I don't know. I think Darvin Ham has a lot of questions to figure out, including the one you listed with Austin Reeves, which is like, who has the ball? Who's initiating for us? Who is involved on a possession to possession basis? Because this game, this was a lot of D 'Angelo Russell, and it was a lot of a better version of D 'Angelo Russell than maybe we saw the other night, but it still feels like a lot. 33 minutes for him tonight. Yeah, Reeves, seven shots, one assist. And I thought all of his usage stuff was going to go up, but it seems like it drifted Russell's way. The other thing I was surprised, I thought Rui was going to be a bigger part of this team. I only played 12 minutes, but I haven't changed my thought on them. They're just such a big, problematic team. And if you're the Suns and you're feeling good after that Warriors game, right? And the Warriors, no Draymond, they were able to overpower them a little on the boards. The two centers had 22. And then tonight you see the flip side of the use of Nurkic experience, where it's like, you're getting zero room protection and you're getting somebody who's just going to be confused anytime somebody is coming off a pick. Basically Lebron at the end of the game just said, I'm going to go attack that guy. Yeah, I'm going to go attack that guy right there. Durant was better tonight, at least for the first three quarters that he looked on Tuesday night. It was really cool just seeing those guys on a basketball court after all these years. As I get older, I'm older than you, but just think like, man, this goes way back now. We're talking mid 2000s was the first time these two guys played basketball against each other and it's still going on. So that was in a cool way kind of lingering over this game. I was enjoying that one. How do you think Durant looks in terms of being a 35 year old guy who they gave up three first rounders and two swaps and Mikhail Bridges and Cam Johnson for? It feels like a slightly loaded question. Yeah. He's looked good. And certainly as you said, the first three quarters of this game looked more than good enough. I think the problem was just like this version of the Suns like felt very James Harden is hurt and Kyrie Irving won't get the shot. Nets, you know, just like Kevin Durant and a bunch of like - I blocked that net out of my mind. I think a lot of us have tried to, but you know, him with a lot of like serviceable workaday role players can get you so far. But as you saw on this one, against a really good defensive team like the Lakers in the fourth quarter, they can just shut the water off. And this is where, you know, I'm nervous about the Suns for a variety of reasons. I think if it was just the defense or just the depth or just the injury risk of their core guys, I would feel better. But it's all of the above all the time. And that's going to put Durant in some games like this one. It's going to put Yusef Nurkic in positions like this one where all of a sudden he's triggering your offense because you don't really have a default point guard out there. And sometimes the value of having a point guard in your rotation, I don't think it's really going to matter when Beal and Booker and Durant are playing together. Those guys can all handle and play make and do everything they need to do. But in a game like this, where two of those guys are out, sometimes it helps to just be able to run some offense that doesn't have to involve Kevin Durant pounding the rock through pick and roll. Yeah, 28 shots for him today. 13 including, and then 13 free throws. He played 39 minutes and was also playing the five in stretches. And this is game two. They had to basically try to unlock 2007 Texas Longhorns Durant. That's the last guy I want to be throwing miles on, maybe in the entire league other than LeBron. Cause he's, you know. That's going to be true for Booker and Beal too, right? Like when any of these guys are out, those three, whoever's left is going to have to play huge minutes or else you get into Grayson Allen and Drew Eubanks are playing like a massive role in your rotation. And I like those guys. I like Drew Eubanks. Maybe not like tamper and lose a second round pick like Drew Eubanks, like some teams do, but. I'd lose 50K for him. Maybe not a second round pick. It's a little steep. Yeah. The other game, Milwaukee Philly. So no Harden. I wish there was a way to just mute the entire Harden story of all coverage for it. Anything online, anything on Twitter, all conversations. I just don't want to hear it anymore. And I don't think he has any interest in playing. And I just think, just tell us when he gets traded. Their best chance now, now that the, especially the Clippers last night looked great.

A highlight from CMMThursday Hour 2 (Michael Torbin 231005)
"Welcome to the Eric Metaxas show. Did you ever see the movie The Blob starring Steve McQueen? The blood curdling threat of The Blob. Well, way back when, Eric had a small part in that film, but they had to cut his scene because The Blob was supposed to eat him, but he kept spitting him out. Oh, the whole thing was just a disaster. Anyway, here's the guy who's not always that easy to digest. Eric Metaxas. Ladies and gentlemen, I told you, I told you that in this segment I would bring on a senior counsel for the Alliance Defending Freedom, Jack Wagner. And as it turns out, he just corrected me. I'm mispronouncing Jack. He pronounces it Vincent, which is bizarre of Vincent. If you insist, Vincent Wagner, welcome to the program. Thanks, Eric. It's an easy mistake to make. Yes, yes, it is. No, you know, I was saying to you that I was getting confused because I mentioned Jack Phillips. A lot of people know the case of Jack Phillips, the baker who has been attacked and attacked and attacked in Colorado, and you guys at the Alliance Defending Freedom have been defending him. And the head of ADF, Kristen Wagner, no relationship to Vincent Wagner. You said there's there's an O in her name. That's right. She got two G's and an O that I that I like. Well, sorry, an extra G and an O that are missing from my name. What what what's that all about? OK, so in any event, I'm trying to confuse my audience. So but but I got an email from her this morning talking about you guys at the Alliance Defending Freedom, defending Jack Phillips, the masterpiece bake shop owner who I've met him several times, a humble man, a man of God who refuses to do what people tell him to do because of his faith. And he has been so attacked in Colorado. And if it weren't for you guys at the Alliance Defending Freedom, he would just be literally out of business, bankrupt. I mean, that's one thing that maybe a lot of people are aware of that the Alliance Defending Freedom has done. But the fact that that battle goes on, can you say a little bit about I mean, this has been many, many, many years that ADF pro bono for free has been defending this hero, Jack Phillips in Colorado. Can you say why that's still going on? Well, Colorado and folks in Colorado haven't haven't let Jack move on with his life. I mean, just this week, the Colorado Supreme Court agreed to take Jack's case again. So the fight continues. And like you said, Eric, don't charge Jack a dime. We don't charge any of our clients a dime. We do this all for free to protect Americans freedom. And you may be already familiar with the five areas we focus on. Jack's falls within the category of religious liberty. We want to protect all Americans freedom to exercise their religion, not just think about it privately in their house or in the church pew, but to exercise it in society to protect religious freedom, protect the free speech of all Americans. You know, that comes up a lot lately on college campuses and where a lot of those cases are and protect the sanctity of life. We we played a big role in last year's victory in Dobbs. Our team, our life team was helping the state of Mississippi defend the law that the Supreme Court eventually held was constitutional and overruled Roe on.
A highlight from Surveillance Finance 101 with Seth Hertlein and Michael Mosier
"Hey, Bankless Nation. I put out a tweet last week that said this, who can come on bank lists and explain the modern financial surveillance apparatus? FADF, FinCEN, AMLKYC, OFAC, the Blacklist, the Graylist. How does it all work? Who makes the rules? But in the space for years, I still don't understand these dark corners. That's very much how I felt coming to this episode, needing the financial surveillance 101. I knew it was an octopus, knew it was this multi -headed hydra. I had no idea how deep its roots actually go, and today we unpack this with legal experts. Seth Hirtline, he's the VP of Global Policy at Ledger, and also Michael Mosier. He actually has spent some time in the belly of the beast at both FinCEN and OFAC. Now he's on our team. He's the guy inside the house. Yeah, and now he's on Team Crypto, so he's got some insider baseball that he's going to tell us as we make sense of this. This was a really fantastic episode. I know I want to get your comments on this episode, but before we do, we've got a message from our friends and sponsors over at Ave. David, what does Ave want bankless listeners to know? Ave wants you to know that Ave V3 is here. I mean, it's been here. It's been here for six months. So why does Ave want you to know that V3 is here? Well, because apparently over a billion dollars of capital doesn't know that because it's still in Ave V2. Not only that, but there is a button for migrating your capital to Ave V3. So Ave, if you are an Ave V2 enjoyer, which you are free to because it is permissionless open source technology, they still want you. Everything gets better if all of the liquidity goes to the same place. So if you are using Ave but you are using Ave, an old version of Ave, perhaps consider joining the rest of the crew in Ave V3. It has more liquidity than Ave V2, but also some extra features as well. So power asset isolation mode and compartmentalize your risks. It's got some gas optimizations. It's got some extra bells and whistles. It's just a better version of Ave. App .Ave .com. But then also there is Ave Grants. If you are a builder building on Ave, especially their brand new stablecoin Go, there are grants available to you. So overall, there's a bunch of things to do in the Ave ecosystem, and there's a link in the show notes to get started with all of them. Yeah. My favorite, I would say both of our favorites, lending and borrowing protocol and crypto. They've been around since the very beginning. Ave is just fantastic. David, I know this episode was my idea. It's kind of like geeky, wonkish stuff, but I felt like it was so important, especially on the back of developers getting arrested in tornado cash. Like what is going on? I just realized one day I don't even understand what all of these are institutions and what gives the financial surveillance system their apparatus. What did you think of this episode? Yeah, I definitely would categorize this one as a Ryan episode. I was definitely in listening mode for the majority of this podcast. I mean, I guess that's what it's like to be a listener. You're in listening mode, so I guess telling listeners to enter listening mode, I guess doesn't help them. I learned a lot. It felt like story time, a little bit about American history. One of these episodes that we frequently do on Bankless every now and then about just like, hey, how did just the state of laws come to be in the way that they are and how are they downstream from the original American values that this country was founded on? What about the current settling of the dust around this new player in the world of, in this universe called cryptography? How is that disturbing the equilibrium and how do we need to extend American values into this new world? Because if we don't do that, then non -American values will take over. I think that's kind of the through line that I would, that will anchor Bankless listeners is that there's this new field in territory. We can have freedom enter and establish itself legally, or we can have authoritarian interests enter in that same field. And I mean, I think everyone knows which side that we want to win. We need to actually fight for that and fighting for that starts with understanding. And so I think that's why I enjoyed this episode is it helps tell that story. Yeah. And anytime David says American values, if you're outside the U S and you're like American values, just, just think of liberal values, like lowercase L values, right? Civil liberties you know, freedoms of citizens to, to express themselves and to transact without the surveillance of the government. That's really what we're talking here. And that's what's at stake more than anything. I think this episode impressed upon me that unchecked, this is just an octopus. This is just like a tree structure that will, I don't know, it's not an octopus slime mold. It will grow. Exactly. And, and it is growing and it has grown since like the 1970s.

Bankless nation. We are super excited to host two legal minds on our show today. Seth Hurtline is the vice president global head of policy at ledger and Michael Moser. He's the building ex ante. Um, he's formerly been at FinCEN and the treasury chief technical council at T analysis. So he's seen a thing or two in the space. Uh, welcome Michael. Thanks. All right guys. Uh, so what we're going to attempt to do on today's episode is give kind of the everyman explanation of financial surveillance. I feel like this is an episode. Um, maybe for me, it's, it's kind of a selfish episode because I feel like here I am in crypto and I've heard all of these, you know, four or five letter agencies. Uh, and it's recently started to impact my life with like tornado cash. I'm not entirely sure what these agencies are. I'm not entirely sure what's legal and what's not. I'm not entirely sure what powers each of these agencies actually have over my financial life. And I'm looking for like the one Oh one, I'm looking for like the, the explainer when we call it, talk about fat if, uh, and we're talking about OFAC, we're talking about whitelists and gray lists and we're talking about, you know, can I use tornado cash or not? And I can't because I'm an American. I just don't know what, uh, what every like what's going on here. So I feel like we need the one Oh one episode. So if you guys are game to do that, that's what, uh, this we're going to try to accomplish today. So I'm good. Great. Absolutely. Well, let's, um, let's kind of start domestic, uh, from sort of the U S perspective if we will, and then, then go international to kind of the rest of the world. But I want to start with maybe a working definition. So I'm thinking of this episode as like a financial surveillance one Oh one episode. And I'm wondering if you guys could sort of describe financial surveillance when I use that term, what does it mean to you? What is kind of happening behind the scenes? Who are some of the main agencies that hold the power? I'll throw this one to you first, Seth. Okay. Um, well, I, you know, I think, you know, for the purposes of this episode, let's, uh, you know, sort of carve out, you know, private sector or sort of corporate surveillance. Um, uh, let's, let's sort of limit the scope of today's conversation to, uh, to government surveillance. But I, you know, I think the, uh, you know, a good working definition could be, um, you know, information that is, uh, collected by, uh, or, uh, required to be reported to, uh, the, uh, the federal government or an agency thereof, uh, either by individuals or, um, uh, by, by service providers, intermediaries, uh, that they use for, uh, their everyday financial lives. So just to check that definition, Seth, I hear hearing two parts. One is the legally mandated reporting requirements, which if you don't do it, you get like something like fines and jail. And then there's additional information, which it would seem that the powers that be are able to just collect by their own visual, uh, mechanisms as in like it's information that's out there and they collect that information because it's available for them to collect. So that's two types of data. I mean, you know, Mike, I'd be curious your, your thoughts on this. I think it sort of converges effectively into, uh, more or less the same thing. Um, so, so maybe not a need to draw that particular distinction. Um, yeah, I think, I think it's a, I think it's a collective approach. It sort of, um, I think for two reasons, one is, you know, some of that will come into play, David, as we're, as we think about challenges, including constitutional challenges, uh, as courts have, have made a distinction between, uh, when you put your trash out, um, have you relinquished control of it? And if somebody goes through it, they just go through that through it, um, versus, uh, somebody coming in your house and going through your papers, which is the sort of genesis of the fourth amendment. Um, and I think as Seth's pointing out, we're, we're in a space here with, with web one, two, and now three, where there's tremendous amount that's, that's in this gray area between what's public and what isn't. I think even, even the concept of like what's public information at this point, um, is, is a lot more of a fine tuned, uh, fine nuanced issue, uh, including, I should say, like in a way that, that also these same government agencies that are, that are collecting it for various reasons. I mean, the, the mission of all of this, uh, and I think this is important is something when, when I was at FinCEN, we would say to the people on the Hill, making the laws too, sometimes without asking us first, uh, was that the primary mission is countering exploitation here. And so you have to factor into that, that the fact that this information out there and being collected in any form is also subject to creating greater exploitation. Uh, and that, that includes people's, you know, honeypots of people's data that gets hacked. Um, some of this recently coming up in FTX and Kroll, um, coming out of the bankruptcy. Uh, and that's something that, that I think there's the policymakers and the politicians, and then there's also the, operators out there, including at FinCEN and DOJ are saying, actually we don't need more cases and more victims. Uh, so can we protect some of this too? It's partly why we brought in privacy experts and did initiatives on zero knowledge proofs and homomorphic encryption at FinCEN. So I do think it's really important that we're, that we're talking about that very holistically. There's a lot out there. So already we're talking about FinCEN and DOJ and treasury and all these kinds of institutions. I want to get some working definitions on, but, but while we're, while we're talking about, um, this, this term, financial surveillance, all right, let's just get a grasp of what sort of data is generally being collected. And like, when is this primarily like, uh, intermediaries that are required to submit this? Because, um, as a, you know, a citizen of the US, I don't often have to, I guess I'm not like conscious of times that I'm like filing paperwork with treasury or FinCEN, but maybe I am through an intermediary and I, I just don't know it. So what sort of things are being tracked and, uh, surveilled and why? I'm happy to take that first. Yeah, I think, I mean, so it's true. You're not, although I will say there's, there's, uh, there's legislation out there, particularly in the tax space that could make you a reporter, Ryan, whether you like it or not, and whether everyone around you likes it or not. Uh, speaking of honeypots, like you may be collecting and reporting on others, but I think as, as in a traditional stand from the, from a FinCEN perspective in the Bank Secrecy Act, um, you're absolutely right. It would be intermediaries. Uh, and in fact, this goes back to some of the constitutional issues that, and the third party doctrine that Seth mentioned, but it's really transactional information. Um, and historically, in fact, the, we can talk through a little bit if you want the history of the Bank Secrecy Act, but it was exactly this. It was around, uh, reporting requirements basically, uh, coming up through the seventies. Um, and basically at the time it was purely, it was basically large cash. Um, law enforcement was seeing large cash deliveries to banks. I'm pretty sure it was organized crime. And when they would go to a bank, the bank would say, I don't know, I don't know why, um, Bugsy Siegel dropped off, $100 million. Uh, and so the other piece of that was that there was foreign Swiss banks, uh, at the time. And so this was the foreign transactions reporting piece of it too. Um, that had Swiss bank, Swiss secrecy, uh, Bank Secrecy, which is where the Bank Secrecy Act comes from. Um, and so the US would say, okay, well, we'll go to Switzerland where some of this money is getting sent from the bank that was brought in in cash. And they'd go to the Swiss and say, okay, you tell me about what's going on here. And they would say, there's nothing we can say. There's a secret, there's bank secrecy here. And so part of it was going to the US banks and saying, we need you to collect more information at the time. It was really just information of like, who's collecting it. Um, give me their, their, basically their, their bank opening information. Where do they live? What's their phone number? What's their, um, what's their occupation? What's their source of income, that sort of thing. It evolved over time to suspicious activity reports, which is much more, I think what, what you're thinking through, which is, okay, now a bank is making a determination. Seth came in the other day. He didn't just drop off a bunch of cash. He's, he's making anomalous, uh, deposits that don't make sense to us. Uh, this seems suspicious. He said he was, uh, he said he was a reporter, but he makes a million dollars a day. Um, what's going on here. And so they would file a suspicious activity report that would lay out, who is it? What did he say it came from? Um, and what is it that's suspicious about it? And I, and I should say like, you know, back in the day that would have been, he brought in a bag of cash, um, net, then it would evolve to checks and check numbers. Then it would evolve to trans, uh, wire transfers and the wire transfer information about every piece of that transaction who the correspondent bank was in the crypto space. That could be all sorts of things. What wallet address was connected? What time? Uh, if it's a, if it's a public ledger like Ethereum or Bitcoin, that might be, here's a graph of everything that that wallet touched, um, historically, uh, depending on what the platform is, they may collect the IP address, even the device identifier that Seth used to connect. Um, so there's a tremendous amount of data and metadata that could be collected in that. Can we, Michael, so can we go back to kind of the history here, uh, with you guys to make sure I understand it. So there wasn't, and we're still domestic, so we're still talking about the U S and we'll expand international after this. So, um, prior to like the 1970s, am I right to say there wasn't much financial surveillance? And then in the nine 1970s, is that, is that correct? Yeah. Yeah. Okay. So that's correct. And then in the 1970s, basically to kind of fight crime, maybe organized crime, you know, the mafia was sort of one, uh, one organization that was in the cross hairs. Uh, the U S came out with a bank secrecy act and this started sort of the, the surveillance, financial uh, apparatus. And, and so this, is this the reason basically for AML KYC, which is like, I have to be identified before I can like, you know, with a government ID, let's say before I can open a bank account. And this is the reason when I go to like transfer money or take out a large deposit from my bank, uh, the bank teller will say, what are you doing with that? Like, how are you using that money to ask these questions? I'm always like, why, why do you need to know this? Uh, you know, and it's almost couched as if, well, we want to protect you from frauds and scams and you know, maybe that's part of it. It seems like more of it is, is, is kind of this financial surveillance apparatus. So that's why I have to present an ID. That is why they are asking questions like, what are you doing with the money? And can you tell me more about, uh, the source of the funds? These are all questions. I'm, I know many bankless listeners have, have seen from their banks and it all, all emanated from this legislation from the, the 1970s and the bank secrecy act is that, is this correct? Yeah. So it started, uh, bank secrecy act was enacted in 1970. Um, and you know, at, at that time it was, uh, you know, a much smaller version, uh, you know, than it is now. Uh, right. So in 1970 I had two, uh, two core provisions, title one, title two, title one basically said banks have to, um, record, uh, transactions of their customers. They have to keep an internal log of all the transactions their customers made. Title two said the banks have to report, uh, transactions over a certain size to the treasury department. And in 1970, that, that threshold was set at, at 10 ,000 us dollars. Um, and so that created, um, one of these forms that, uh, the reports get made on called a CTR or currency transaction report. Uh, importantly, the, uh, that threshold, that $10 ,000, uh, hasn't ever been adjusted. Right. So if you, if you go back and you adjust the CTR threshold, uh, back to, to 1970 dollars, it's the equivalent of about $79 ,000 today. Wow. And what that amounts, yeah. What amounts that amounts to is, uh, you know, a gradual but constant tightening of the noose of, uh, transaction reporting of, uh, you know, the American people. Uh, and, you know, and so that's where it started. Um, you know, but, you know, both as, as sort of Mike and, and Ryan, your, your, your comments alluded to, there's this sort of creeping nature of it where it all, it just expands. Right. So first it was just the CTRs and the record keeping, you know, now it's, uh, SARs or suspicious activity ports that were added in 1992. Um, there was a, a vast expansion of the scope of the types of transactions it just really quick SARS. So suspicious activities report, is that basically incumbent on sort of the bank teller or bank employee to be like, Hey, there's something fishy about this transaction and I'm going to report it up. Is that right? Exactly. Exactly. Okay. Um, and, um, you know, so interesting stat on, on suspicious activity reports, um, somewhere North of 2 million SARS get filed with Vincent every year. Um, uh, you know, again, curious for your, for your insider take on this mic, but, uh, you know, testimony, uh, presented to Congress is that FinCEN reviews less than 1 % of the SARS that are actually filed. Um, and, you know, and, and there are, you know, way more CTRs filed than SARS filed. So, you know, most of this information goes into, uh, you know, basically just a government database and sits there waiting to be queried. Um, and, uh, you know, but so, uh, these things keep getting added on to the BSA, right? So it, it grows over time and there was a huge expansion in scope. BSA bank secrecy act. And so there was a big expansion in scope, um, as part of the Patriot act, uh, after nine 11, uh, that added a lot of new types of information that had to be gathered and reported and, uh, new intermediary types that are responsible for gathering and reporting that information.
A highlight from Evangelism Pt. 2
"Yeah, it's forgot It has the four points of that gospel presentation that I talked about last week being God man Christ and response And today I'm going to be kind of building on that. Well, I am going to be building on it So that's why I gave that handout and on that handout are also some verse references Just in case you guys want to use this as like a reference sheet or something. It could be something that's very useful in the future And also then I just want to mention that there's two books really one book that were really helpful for me Originally as I was kind of trying to grow in my faith and then now again as I was trying to prepare this lesson One of them is called. What is the gospel by Greg Gilbert? It's like 120 pages and it's actually I didn't bring it but it's about this big so it's 120 pages, but they're small So it's a pretty easy read and then the other one is more of a devotional book It's called a gospel primer from Milton Vincent and that's been something that's been really helpful with me, too So I know I already mentioned this but last week I had summarized the gospel message and I had broken it up into four parts That was God man Christ and man's response. I Didn't really go into too much detail about why each point is important or give the verses to support each point But this week I really want to take the time to focus on each part With with some of the verses that support it and explain why each piece of it is important like I mentioned last week the gospel is the message that God has entrusted us with and it is not a Responsibility that we should be taking lightly. This is shown. We'll read it again in Galatians chapter 8 chapter 1 verses 8 & 9 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary Contrary to the one we preach to you Let him be accursed as we have said before so now I say again if anyone is preaching to you a gospel Contrary to the one you received let him be accursed So the first part the first part of that four -point gospel message is God So today especially here in the Northeast there are a lot of people who either have no understanding of God They have a wrong understanding of God or they just denied the existence of God entirely So most people today when you talk to them about God, you're gonna get probably one of four different responses The first is that God is love and because of that he's not going to judge anyone for their actions The second might be along the lines of that God is angry and he doesn't care about his creation anymore and they'll talk about things like natural disasters and cancer And the third is going to be a denial of God entirely Which would be an atheist or the last response might be that they do believe in a God with a lowercase G And that's either another religion or maybe aliens or something So since God is the beginning point and the foundation of the gospel of the gospel There are some key things that we need to be able to explain the study of who God is and knowing about his attributes and really having a Relationship with him is something that takes an entire lifetime to do and it is something that we're never going to be able to fully understand However, there are certain points and certain basic things that we should be able to comprehend and be able to explain So the first the first part of that is that God is the Creator The creation narrative is something that unfortunately even today is challenged within churches and by Christians For example there are some people who believe that God kind of set things in order and then he kind of just took his hands off things and evolution took over from that point forward an Atheist or a non -believer would be a person who says that God had absolutely no involvement in creation whatsoever So to say that God had no or very limited involvement in creation would be to say that the creation does not belong to God to Yeah, the verses or passages that support this point about God being the Creator are verses that I think we're all familiar with and that Will be in Genesis chapter 1 verses 1 and then 26 and 27 so Genesis 1 1 reads in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth and Genesis 1 26 and 27 is when God created man and it says then God said let us make man in our image According to our likeness and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea over the birds of the air and Over the cattle over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth So God created man in his own image in the image of God he created he created him male and female he created them So because God is a creator this means two things First is that there is a purpose for everything that has been created and nothing just exists by random chance or for absolutely no purpose The second is that because God is the Creator he has ownership over his creation This ownership means two things.
A highlight from THE HASH: Bernie Madoff's Former Attorney Reacts to Sam Bankman-Fried Being Sent to Jail; Trump's Crypto Bags
"This is the hash podcast. Stay informed with the latest on Bitcoin, ETH, the metaverse, Web3 and more. All on the hash for your ears. You're listening to the Coindesk podcast network. Hey there. Happy Monday and welcome to Coindesk TV. You are watching the hash. I am Zach Seward. We have Jen Sonasi, Will Foxley and Wendy Oh. We are going to get you up to speed on all that's going on in the world of crypto. You guys ready for this thing? Let's do it. I'm starting off the first story of the day. Friday, Sam Bankman Fried got his bail revoked and was shown to a jail cell. We are joined now by a special guest to help us unpack the latest development and its significance. Joining us is Ira Lee Sorkin. He's the former attorney for Bernie Madoff and a current partner at Mintz and Gold. Ira, how are you today? Thank you. So first of all, I just want a high level, informed perspective on this SPF thing. You've seen some major cases play out in your day. Is there anything that is especially striking or notable about the SPF case here and now? What are your high level thoughts? High level thoughts, immediate interest. Next question. All right. Let's do it. All right. Next up. Next up, immediate interest. All right. So he's in jail now. He's waiting for his October court date behind bars. You gave a similarly concise comment to CoinDesk back in December saying that Sam Bankman Fried should quote, just shut up already. Sorry, I paraphrased you, but basically it was shut up. Those were the two words of advice that you provided to Sam Bankman Fried. I don't think he took that because the judge said he was really pushing the envelope with his communications with various witnesses. Is that still the piece of advice that you would share to Sam Bankman Fried if you were his counsel now? I mean, there's no need for him once he was made bail for him to discuss the case, to share his thoughts about the case with any party other than his counsel. And quite frankly, the amount of documents, and I say this with the understanding that Vincent Gold does not represent anyone in this case. We certainly don't represent Mr. Bankman Fried. We don't represent any witnesses. We are not involved in the case, but the standard conduct that every defendant who makes bail is told, do not discuss the case. Don't discuss it with any potential witnesses. Don't discuss it certainly with the press. The only person you should talk to is your counsel. And there are ways to deal with other witnesses in the case, such as through counsel and a process called a joint defense agreement where the lawyers can talk to one another pursuant to an agreement, and it protects the attorney -client privilege, and it gives the opportunity for all counsel in the case, whether they are defendants or unindicted co -conspirators or conspirators, to be able to share information amongst the lawyers without their clients being present. So those are the general rules. There's nothing unusual about this particular case. When Sam Blankman Fried made bail, he was specifically instructed not to discuss it with anyone, discuss the case with anyone. Don't discuss it with any potential witnesses. Don't share what you are given in the way of the mandatory discovery that the government's required to give to all defendants. And, of course, we have another situation going on in Washington, D .C., and in the Southern District or the Middle District of Florida, I think it's the Southern District of Florida, where a rather prominent individual was given the same instruction by the judge. It's standard, and that's the way it's done. If you violate the bail conditions, which Mr. Blankman Fried violated according to the judge, then he faces the consequences and the consequences are jail. My understanding is that he's going to appeal it. He's got a very good lawyer representing him, and they're going to appeal it. But the chances of him getting out pending the trial, I think, are very slim. These are decisions made by the district court judge, who happens to be a judge of many years and he's very well respected, very smart. And the Court of Appeals is not going to question, I believe, his decision because he knows the record and he knows what the bail conditions are. Thanks again for joining us this morning. I wanted to ask about the significance of being able to prepare for what's coming in October while in jail. How difficult is it? How difficult is it to talk with your lawyer or with your client during that period? Is this a huge disadvantage now going into October? It is a huge disadvantage because there are, from what I've read and heard, there are innumerable documents, many, many, many, many, perhaps millions of documents that the government is required to turn over to Mr. Blankman Fried's counsel. And having had clients who are incarcerated and not being able to make bail, it is very difficult in a paper case such as this to prepare for trial. The facilities at the Metropolitan NBC Brooklyn Center, where he's being held, very, very difficult to prepare. But this is something that I have no doubt his lawyers spoke to him about and I'm just speculating and said, if you stay out, it'll be much easier to prepare for trial. If you're incarcerated, it's very difficult. The facilities are bad. There is privacy, but to load in all the documents and all the information that the government is required to turn over to his lawyers is going to make it very difficult for him to prepare. But it's done. There are a number of people who don't make bail, but it's done. It just makes it a lot more difficult to prepare. I want to talk about these diary entries. They feel like the straw that broke the camel's back here. Sam Bankman Fried's attorneys say that he wasn't trying to tamper with witnesses, that they confirmed he did leak a few pages of the diary to The New York Times. Could this come back? Could it be brought up again once this does go to trail in October? And how might it affect his case? It won't affect it at all. The fact that he disclosed information to The Times or to any media. Let's make it general media. It's not going to affect the trial at all. It affected his bail, obviously, but it's not going to affect the trial. What he turned over, we don't know. I don't know whether The Times has published it or intends to publish it, but there are First Amendment and some freedom of press issues involved in that. And I'm old enough to remember the Pentagon Papers case and Daniel Ellsberg. And that didn't stop the disclosure of information that came to the press. But it didn't affect the trial and it won't affect the trial here either. I have a question for you. Myself and a lot of other people are speculating that Sam will be given special treatment because he comes from a family with a lot of influence and money. Do you think that that is something that we will see play out that he will be segregated away from the other inmates and he will receive special treatment while incarcerated? The short answer is no. He may be segregated. Often defendants who have some notoriety are separated. But the short answer is no. I don't believe he's going to get any special treatment in jail. Jail is not a very nice place, particularly the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, which is closed, and the Brooklyn Correctional Center, which is open. And he will not be given any special privileges. And certainly the facilities do not consider the success or wealth of the family or those who put out the help.

Tatum scores 33, Celtics stave off elimination by topping Heat 116-99 in Game 4
"The Boston Celtics kept their season alive with a statement one 1699 game four win against the heat in Miami. Jayson Tatum scored 25 of his game high 33 points in the second half and had 11 rebounds and 7 assists to help the Celtics avoid a sweep forcing a game 5 Thursday in Boston. We didn't play well those first three games. We didn't deserve to win. But you know, we didn't want that to define us, define the season. Jaylen Brown added 17 points, Derek white had 16 and grant Williams 14. Jimmy Butler led the heat with 29 points and Gabe Vincent scored 17. I'm geffen cool bomb.
The latest in sports
"AP sports I'm David Shuster, one game in both the NBA and NHL playoffs Sunday and they were completely different from a competitive standpoint. We start in the NBA with geth and kuba filling us in on Miami and Boston. The Miami Heat cruise to a three O series lead in the Eastern Conference Finals after blowing out the Boston Celtics one 28 one O two at home in game three. Gabe Vincent pace the heat with a playoff career high 29 points on 11 of 14 shooting. Caleb Martin added 18 points, Jimmy Butler scored 16 and bam adebayo 13. Boston stars Jayson Tatum and jaylen Brown were held to 14 and 12 points respectively on a combined 12 of 35 shooting. Miami can clinch its second NBA Finals birth in four seasons with a win in game four Tuesday. And now over to hockey with Mark Myers reporting on Las Vegas and Dallas. Chandler Stephenson scored early in overtime to give the golden knights a three to two win over the stars and a two O series lead the knights were able to tie the score in the final minute of regulation on a goal by Jonathan Marshall, Aiden hill made 26 saves in the Vegas nets, Jake Avengers stopped 21 shots for the stars who were now zero in four and overtime games this postseason. Turning to baseball, Houston completed a three game sweep of Oakland Sunday's final two zero and how bad are the a's well they're on pace to lose 138 games which would be a record. Other highlights Sunday Oscar Mercado with 5 RBI St. Louis ten 5 over the Dodgers and Cedric mullin 5 hits Baltimore 8 three over Toronto. To golf and Brooks Koepka won his 5th major title, he won the PGA Championship by two shots. That was good. Yeah, this one's this one's definitely special. I think this one's probably the most meaningful of them all with everything that's gone on, all the other crazy stuff over the last few years, but it feels good to be back and get number 5. And in auto racing, Spain's Alex pillow captured the pole position for this year's Indy 500. I'm David Shuster, a P sports.
Heat roll past Celtics 128-102, take 3-0 lead in Eastern Conference finals
"The Miami Heat cruise to a three O series lead in the Eastern Conference Finals after blowing out the Boston Celtics one 28 one O two at home in game three. Gabe Vincent paced the heat with a playoff career high 29 points on 11 of 14 shooting. My teammates tell me time and time again to come off the picker and be aggressive and then make reads from there. So when they're giving me that confidence and I see a couple go in, you know, I'll definitely continue to be aggressive. Boston stars Jayson Tatum and jaylen Brown were held to 14 and 12 points respectively. Miami can clinch its second NBA Finals birth in four seasons with a win in game four Tuesday. I'm geffen coolbaugh.
Butler, Heat start 2nd round with 108-101 win over Knicks
"That he got hot in the second half and defeated the Knicks one O 8 one O one in game one of their Eastern Conference semifinal series. New York was up 61 53 early in the third quarter, but Miami went on a 21 5 run to take command of the game. Gave Vincent played a key role scoring 20 points including 5 three point field goals. It's one game. I don't want to put too much on it. It's nice to get the first one. You always want to get one on the road, but we'll go from there. Jimmy Butler led the heat with 25 points, but hurt his ankle late in the fourth quarter. Kyle Lowry also came up big for Miami scoring 9 of his 18 points in the final period. The Knicks RJ Barrett led all scores with 26. Tom arram, New York
Rangers end 4-game slide with 5-2 win over Kings
"Rangers snapped a four game slide with a 5 to two win over Los Angeles, leading one to nothing. The range was killed off a 5 minute king's power play that carried into the second period. Soon after the penalty kill, Vincent Trojans scored twice within 97 seconds and the ranges maintained the lead. Playing with the latest huge in this league, obviously whenever you get up, give yourself the momentum. I have to worry about taking yourself a whole like we've been doing a little bit lately. The kings have gone 8 three and two in their last 13 games. The ranges did use only 16 of 18 skaters due to Rasta maintenance ahead of Friday's trade deadline. Mike mancuso, New York
Playoff-hopeful Red Wings beat Rangers 4-1
"The red wings win for the 7th time in their last 8 games rocking the rangers four to one. Red wing center Andrew cop had a goal and two assists to help move his team into a tie for the final wild card spot in the east with 64 points. I think we're over the cut line right now. I think that's what it means to us. I think we're understanding how to play the game. I think that even when we get leads, we're playing pretty mature Phillips adena, Michael Rasmussen and Philip Heron, also lit the lamp while Billy husso stopped 30 shots to earn the win. Vincent trochek notched his 17th of the season for the rangers who dropped their third straight. I'm Denny cop.
Heat use balanced scoring, rally to beat Magic 106-103 in OT
"The magic had three players score at least 20 points in a one O 7 one O three overtime win against the magic. Tyler hero had 23 points. Jimmy Butler furnished 22 and gave Vincent added 20. The heat trail by 9 with two 22 left in regulation, and we're down by 17 in the third quarter. Bam adebayo finished with 13.17 rebounds and 6 assists from Miami. Markelle fultz led Orlando with 17 points in palo banquero had 16 with 13 rebounds. Bon Caro missed a driving layup in the final seconds of the fourth. I'm Dave ferry.
Tarasenko thrills crowd with goal in Ranger debut
"Vladimir tarasenko scored in his rangers debut, a 6 three verdict over the kraken. Tarasenko opened the scoring just two 49 into the game. One day after being acquired by New York from St. Louis. And the mixed game for us, but just a good day and a great day. And I'm very excited. Capo caco made it two zero just two 12 later. Capo Ryan lindgren and Vincent roch each provided a goal on an assist to back Igor shishkin, who handled 26 shots in the rangers fourth consecutive win. Oliver Björk's friend had a goal on an assist for the kraken, who went zero and three through the New York area this week.
"vincent" Discussed on The Crossover NBA Show with Chris Mannix
"And again, this is so Donovan Mitchell by saying this, I'm putting this out there, now there's a reason for a reporter to go out and say, well, let's explore this further. As journalists, we should be reporting on these things. Anyway, but so this gave a platform then for some people of color in Utah, when asked about this to say, oh, Donovan said this? Yeah, let me tell you about my version of this. And over and over and over, you hear it. This is how you know folks. I'm obviously speaking to white listeners. This is how you know this is not just, this is not an outlier. This is not just one person's experience. This is not unfairly characterizing Salt Lake or the state of Utah. No, this is a universal experience for people who are not white who are living there. And people in Utah don't need to be defensive about it. You could just be, you can acknowledge that the experience of your neighbors may not be your experience and maybe just listen instead of getting on your heels, which is what a lot of people did when Donovan Mitchell first voiced this. So they interview a woman Alicia Archibald. She's fijian Indian. She was adopted at 6 weeks old by white Mormon residents of Utah, the story says she recalls being a 4th of July parade trying to locate the spot where her grandparents had staked out, quote, I looked around and there was not a single person of color in like a thousand people, it was just me and it felt so weird and kind of claustrophobic in a way that I can't explain. So I thought that was striking. If you just think about that feeling of like, you look around, there's not a single person who looks like you as far as the eye can see. This is part of the experience of being in Utah that Donovan Mitchell's alluding to. And then she notes, she was 16 or 17. She started going to, there's this digital media arts center and she finally meet some other black kids. And realized how important it was to her mental well-being the story says, quote, it finally gave me the opportunity to interact with people that understood my experience. That's something that white people will never understand because you're never going to know what it's like to not see yourself for that long. This is not, I bring these up because these are on the tamer end of the spectrum. This doesn't have to be outright racism. It doesn't have to be somebody calling you a certain word. It doesn't have to be somebody saying some of the insulting things that you alluded to earlier Vinny that were in also in the story about the dentist office and some of this other stuff. It can just simply be that your experience is dramatically different and there's a feeling that goes with it and when Donovan Mitchell, I want to keep bringing it back to him because this is an NBA issue. It matters.
"vincent" Discussed on The Crossover NBA Show with Chris Mannix
"I don't know where I'll come down a week from now when I have to file the ballot, but it's Dončić and it's either courier morant for that one. That's for sure. AD's missed a long, long stretch and still isn't even back. So like, easy to excise him, I think. And yeah, Zion out right now, and so that's problematic, but the other candidates like jaren Jackson junior be a good one, but he's missed 25 games. Zionism is 29, by the way, as we speak. And then, well, so if we're going to start, if it doesn't even feel like Zion's missed that much. Wait, did I put down the miss 29er? He's played 29. Maybe he's played, excuse me, he's played 29, I think. Yeah, he's playing. I was like, wait a minute. It doesn't feel like you missed that much, but you're like, he's played 29 games. Yeah, so 12 of 41. So that's a sizable number missed, but it's also a pretty good number that he's actually played. And then if you're really gonna go hardline on the injury stuff and availability, then now we're down to, I don't want to say down to because they're playing great. But Lowry marketing, damana sabonis. And that's the next level there. So that's what I'm still weighing. I'm not expecting us to make the decisions in real time here on this pod, but we've got a week to do this. We've got a week of more games as well. But I think it's going to be a difficult one. The east, the fans in the first returns had Durant, Giannis mbede in a guard, they had Kyrie and Donovan Mitchell. On this one, so front court, Giannis absolutely Durant probably despite him being out now. We know that if Durant's not back in time, Adam silver will replace him. So I'm not going to anticipate well, he can't play anyway, so I'm going to knock him out. He hasn't, like he's played the majority of the game still by far. He just went down. So he's played definitely enough and has played an incredibly high level. So I'm good with Durant and Giannis. That third front court spot embiid versus Tatum is just going to torture us all and then guard Donovan Mitchell's a lock, second guard, I know the fans love watching Kyrie. Kyrie can't make it over jaylen Brown the season. He's having for the Celtics and the Celtics have been the best team in the league all season. What do you think? I'm kind of with you there.

"So no, jokic doesn't dominate the way that Shaq did or the way that akeem did or the way that wilt, so there's that. And so I do think that it's harder for people to look at also, frankly, we look at like Giannis fits the bill, right still. Like you just look at what Janis does. You look at what Durant does. Their style of play. Again, big, powerful, dunking, jumping high, all these things that we associate with great MBA player. And jokic does it different. And like I say, I think it's very analogous to the staff thing. It's a different model for a different time and you got to adapt your thought process and it's an ideology. It's aesthetic, too. Yes. It is the other part of it. With Steph, there was a hesitance to embrace what was coming. The three point shot was coming to revolutionize the league. And he was the face of it. But you could at least hear Steph with the style of play of the league, you can't pair jokic with the style of play of the league. He is one of one. And like you said, you consider most big guys. I think it's the other part of this. He doesn't protect the realm. I think if he did all that and he protected the rim, that would more or less make it easier for us to embrace. Oh, look at what he's doing. He's doing the triple doubles and he's swatting your shit to the third row. You know what I mean? Like we're caveman sometimes at the end of the day. And I'm a part of it. And defense matters, but listen, Dirk wasn't exactly like wowing the world defensively when he won MVP. And he won one. He didn't win two or three in a row. But other guys have won MVP without necessarily James Harden. Russell Westbrook. Like, you can win MVP without being an even average defender. So we can't hold it against jokichi if we didn't hold against anybody else. And we haven't. He's won two in a row. But the embiid camp, that's what they're going to come back with is, well, our guy does it at both ends at a high level. I get that. Yoga is just off the charts. So but we will have months and months left to debate that one. While we're debating honors, you and I are recording this a couple hours before the next returns of the all star ballots are coming out from the fans. I just want to hit this real quick because we got the first returns last week. Some surprises kind of more about who wasn't on the top 5 or the starting track for the fans. But it was interesting. So in the first returns in the west,

"An overwhelming favorite is a because from a story standpoint, he carried that team to the Conference Finals last year, unexpectedly, we expected Dallas to make a reasonable jump this year, but like a 42 43 win pace, I think. I don't think that they are going to necessarily reach the 50 win mark. And for me, that is non negotiable. 45. As we speak, as we record this, the Mavericks on pace for 45 and yeah, that doesn't meet the standard for me either. Yeah, and I did not vote for Russell Westbrook the year that he won MVP because we were seduced by the number ten. Now, I can be seduced by a number of things. Kelly Rowland, Ali berry, you know what I mean? Like beautiful women with alluring guys. I am not going to be seduced by the number ten, right? So that's why I did not vote for Russell Westbrook that year because I think his team won 46 or 47 games. Jim wearing that range, yeah. And they were 6 in the west and they were not, they certainly were not a team of relevance. A team of importance in the race, which again, broadly, if you don't want to say strictly 50 wins, if you don't want to say it strictly one or two in the conference, which are some of the baselines for the vast majority of MVPs over the last 40 years. If you want to make it more broadly, you could just say dominant player on a team that matters. The thunder did not matter. The nuggets last season, you knew, did not matter. This is when people who are defending jokic. By the way, it's not just Michael Malone, the coach, and it's not just like the nuggets. With jokic weirdly, different than any other player. Every player who is in running for MVP is going to have some based on their team or whoever is going to promote them in a certain way that's going to have a little bit of like how could you not attach to it. But the sanctimonious involved with people who promote jokic. And this goes back the last couple of years. And I'm now talking about some of our colleagues out there in the media world who are anonymous. But there's some weird sector one that goes to jokic thing like how come you guys can't see this or if you don't see this, there's this projection like it must be because you think he's too big too slow too white to European to something. Right. Or you don't understand his mastery of the game and his impact on the game. It's always this there's a projection of lack of sophistication. Yeah. Unless you are somebody who is already supporting him. And it's like, it does bother me. It's not going to keep me from voting for him. But it is kind of annoying that we have to kind of fight back against or push back against some of the sanctimony that goes with the pro jokic contingent out there that is just so strident and so I think condescending sometimes about it.

"And wilt and Bill Russell. And this is a regular season of war, not a postseason award, but it's like, well, yoga, she hasn't won championship she had it, 'cause it's in the same category with those guys. And now we're going to give him something that only those guys have gotten. Almost by definition of history, right? If history is our guide, if history says the parameters for how we classify players and how we elevate them and what tier we put them in and where they are in the pyramid or all these different things when we talk about the scope of history, it does start to weigh on you a little bit that wait a minute. Hold on in the scope of history, there's only been three guys and these are three of the greatest ever. And jokic has the talent to be one of the greatest ever, but he still mid career hasn't won anything in the postseason yet. And you almost don't want to give him an honor that is only been claimed by three absolute Titans of the game. I think that's a fair thing to discuss. I don't know if it's a fair thing to hold against him when we're voting in April. I don't want to dismiss it. It matters. The history matters. Right. But at the same time, if he's the best player this season, and not just the best player, but, you know, you and I agree on this. Best player on a team that matters, right? 50 plus wins, legit chance to make the finals. That's why I didn't vote for him last year, because that was not the case for the nuggets. But this year, I don't have a case against him unless somebody else can knock him off. And if the only case against him is, we can't put him in a category with Larry Bird and Wilt Chamberlain and Bill Russell. I don't know if I can do it on
Gianno Caldwell: How I Lost My Baby Brother

Why Dr. Vincent Giampapa Collects Stem Cells in Costa Rica
"You brought up something interesting and you talk about our current model of medicine. I have a lot of friends in the medical industry and a medical profession who have done this. And we sort of left this one out here for a little bit. Let's bring it back now. You can collect themselves here, but you collect them in Costa Rica, correct? Yeah, so you can collect them and store them here. But then they'd have to be transferred to Costa Rica and that transfer process is three or $4000 just to transfer them. So that's why we say people. And you can get treated. So if you come to ours, our center there, and frankly, you can see it's called both you look on the web, RMI international dot com. You will see something that looks like rodeo drive in Beverly Hills, and it is an unbelievable state of the art facility, and it's the only facility in Central America that has government license to legally do
How Do We Capture Stem Cells? Dr. Vincent Giampapa Explains
"Let's take this and break it down a little bit. I mean, in looking at the, you know, all the aspects of what you just talked about, you know, starting at 20, 50, some, you know, we have people at different places. Let's explain that process. What does that mean if I was sitting here today and I came to you and said, you know, doctor J pop, I want to talk about my stem cell and capture those. What does capturing mean? What does it entail? That kind of stuff. So, first of all, let me explain what the situation is here in the U.S. and frankly in most countries globally. So in most countries, you can collect store stem cells as in the U.S.. We can collect them, store them for future use. We can't give them to back to you. Okay, so under very limited circumstances. For instance, if you have cancer, if you are part of a research study in a major university, then you could use your cells. Frankly, most people even store the cord blood of their children can't really use those unless there's a very limited potential application for those cells. So excuse me. So the secret here is if we can collect and store them, why can't we use them? And so we'll get into that and maybe in a few minutes. But the secret here is today, we can collect your cells and store them. And there's a certain medications we give for three days prior to a collection, which releases billions and billions of stem cells of all three types into your body. That actually really is the first treatment people get when they go to collect because that release a billions of cells is a regenerative treatment. Those cells will start to repair damage and your blood vessels boost your immune function. And decrease the inflammation we're all fraught with as we get
Dr. Vincent Giampapa Describes the 'Disease' of Aging
"You've just brought up something interesting and let's dive into it just a little bit and that is that aging process, explain to our listeners, you know, some of them we got a lot of folks who are young, they're still trying to say, how do they stay young, get more active, you have a lot of listeners in their 50s, like myself, 40s that are in that process of changing. You have also some older listeners. Explain what you mean by the cell and that cell breakdown and using that from a health perspective, not just fixing the quote immediate problem, but the healthy underlying issue as well. So let me explain this is that basically for the first time, the American medical society as well as the World Health Organization is really starting to consider aging a disease. Now this is a quantum leap forward from where we've been in the past. And once we start considering aging is a disease that we now feel it can be treated. We have the technology and science to do that. So underlying this whole this whole process of aging are changes in a number of areas in our body. Our stem cells are really the regenerative system that we're all born with. And by the way, we're all born with a fixed number of stem cells. And I like to use the analogy that would you walk into a car dealer and say to them, I want that beautiful car, but you only get one tank of gas. And you drive that car, now if you don't really take care of that car, it's not going to take you that far. And that's really the analogy that we have with our bodies. So we're all born with a fixed number of stem cells. And what that really means is, as our body cells wear out, those stem cells are called to the areas where there's been damage or wear and tear, and they have to replace the tissues, our heart, our lungs, our muscles, our ligaments, even our brain cells.

"Hey there everyone. My name is ari in welcome to made of metal a motivational podcast. Where we tell stories about regular people overcoming insurmountable odds so good afternoon or morning. Lovely people depending on what time you're listening to this. I hope everyone enjoyed last week's wonderful episode covering the indomitable tina turner this week. We'll be covering another figure that is forever immortalized in the history of the arts. This individual style redefined an entire genre of art although this person was not recognized for their contributions until many years after they're passing this individual did not create for the recognition but purely for the love of creating. So you guys know have to let you know. I love this story and have researched this person extensively in my free time because i've always been drawn to their art but also there's an added layer of mystery surrounding their death. I'm really into true crime too. So i really like this. This individual spent their days filling their time with helping to make the world better and more beautiful. This is a vocation that i find admirable in any circumstance but especially in the face of the hardships this individual faced so without further ado this week we will be covering the striking the stunning the standout vincent then hall. Which is the dutch pronunciation which are probably butchered. But vincent van gogh is how most commonly pronounced in the us. And what. I think most of you guys would know him by. Vincent van gogh was born march thirtieth eighteen fifty three in the picturesque netherlands. Countryside vincent was the first born to his parents so he was the eldest as they would eventually have five other children. Vincent's parents theodorus and anna. Were quite opposites in terms of occupations in countenance. Theodorus was a pastor for the church while anna was an artist who worked with watercolors. It was described that vincent's father was more subdued while his mother was more open in free. Vincent's childhood was spent primarily in a rural area surrounded by the natural world and countryside. We can see that. Nature scenery influence very strongly in many of his landscape paintings later on in life while vincent intended school for a short time. Dudas families lack of financial stability. He had to leave school and begin work in his early teens. Although vincent didn't receive much formal schooling thanks to an uncle. He was able to secure a job with an art dealer. I thought that little tidbit was incredible. As well that vincent was able to start working in the art industry at such a young age and with essentially zero formal art training vincent worked for the art dealer for about three years from eighteen. Seventy three to eighteen seventy six though. It was reported that he didn't particularly enjoy the customer interactions but rather the exposure to the artworks and. I absolutely can't blame him for that. So i'm sure many people would agree during his time. Working with the art dealer. Vincent lived in both paris and london. Two major hubs in comparison to his rustic home village while living in london. Vincent fell in love with the daughter of his landlady when he was around the age of twenty one vincent proposed to his crush and was promptly declined. This event plunged vincent into a swirl of negative emotions and he became moody and dark in his daily life. Vincent was quickly fired from his job at the art dealer after making several inappropriate comments to customers calling the art worthless in genuinely being unprofessional after losing his job at the art dealer. Vincent began working as a teacher as well as at a bookstore. And as a preacher. It was at this point. The vinson began to seriously consider following in his father's footsteps and becoming a member of the church. Thus began vincent journey to attempt to join the ministry and study in theology. As you can see from the career choices vincent was making. He was drawn to humanitarian causes. Vincent began to train to become an evangelist but after becoming frustrated with the program transferred to another region in belgium to complete missionary work. Vincent was passionate in all that he engaged in. This was no different with missionary work after an incident when vincent became overcome with the desire to give away all of his belongings to the impoverished people. He was helping the church requested. Vincent cease working on their behalf. And vincent was again unemployed. This was yet another blow to vincent self worth and he became even more isolated in withdrawn. The trouble vincent was having seemed to all stem from his inability to go with the status quo after his latest career setback. Vincent decided to pivot back to where he'd started in what he knew art. Vincent would connect with his younger brother. Theo who was an art dealer in brussels and focus his efforts on developing as an artist. Feel in vincent. Were quite close. As theo offered to help vincent with whatever he may need allowing vincent to focus on establishing his art form when speaking with theo as to why he was pursuing art vincent was quoted. I want to give the wretched a brotherly message. When i signed my paintings vincent it is as one of them. This is what i loved about vincent. Not just him being an absolutely prolific artists. But how endearing and positive. He was about humanity in spite of the bumps in hiccups on his journey and short. this began. vincent's incredible dedication to being an artist. Above all what isn't as well known. I think is that vincent experimented extensively with different styles forms and mediums. When you first began studying art seriously. He'd created mostly watercolours in a focused on his drawing. After moving back to the countryside to attempt to self study landscapes vincent realized he required guidance and lessons from others who had more experience in the field. This conclusion led to a collaboration with a dutch painter. Who specialized in landscapes. Name anton.

"Hi, Zoe good evening. How are you? I'm good. Thanks, Molly. How are you? Good. Welcome everybody to our Facebook Live this evening. And we're going to give a minute people to join us and get online. Tonight, we're talking with Zoey, who currently is in St. Vincent. Where a volcano recently erupted and our team there is working to provide emergency support for the communities affected by the eruption. So as people sort of join Zoey, maybe you can introduce yourself a bit, explain what you're doing there, what your role is, yeah. Yeah, absolutely, Molly. So yeah, so normally, as you know, but maybe other people don't know, I usually work in headquarters, but I'm currently on this emergency mission in St. Vincent, working from the beginning, the first group people to arrive to assess the needs. Of the community to see what they need to help both post emergency, really in those initial stages. Just seeing kind of where the gaps are listening to people talking to a lot of people local NGOs and small community groups and also government ministries to see the needs and that's kind of how we started. And now we're talking a little bit, but now kind of two weeks on were much more into development, longer term programs, or at least for the next couple months. So that's kind of where we're at now. Yeah, that's kind of what we're doing at the moment. So I'm going to guess that many people who are watching may not have heard of St. Vincent. Perhaps you could give us a little bit of insight, background, where what region are we talking about? What's going on? Absolutely. You're probably right on that. Some Vincent.
