"Month's sponsor, Mercedes Benz, whose own famous namesake was inspired by a young muse named Mercedes. Join us all month long for fascinating stories of women who are drivers of creativity, inspiration, and artistic expression. Hello. From wonder media network, I'm Jenny Kaplan, and this is will manica. This month we're talking about muses. Women who were drivers of creativity and inspiration. Today's mewes is perhaps best known for inspiring Virginia Woolf's novel Orlando. But she was also a prolific author in her own right, writing more than 35 books and keeping famously sensual diaries. Let's talk about Vita sackville west. Vita sackville west's lineage is something out of a fairytale. Her grandmother was a famed Romani ballerina, who had 5 children outside of marriage with the British baron. Vida, whose parents were also first cousins, grew up at her family's ancestral estate in England, which was called Noel. When Vita was born in 1892, the sackville had been at Noel for almost 300 years. Theta was a rough and tumble child who loved adventuring around the estates 1000 acres with her trusty pocket knife. She was also insatiably creative. By the time she was 18 years old, she'd written 8 novels and 5 plays. But at 18, Vida had to enter society. That meant four balls every week, luncheons every day. It also meant a line of suitors, eager to charm this mysterious beauty. But Vita wasn't charmed by any of them. Partially because money and influence were normal to a future baroness, and partially because she'd already had several relationships with other women. After two years of balls and luncheons and suitors, Vita finally found her match. Harold Nicholson was the youngest officer in Britain's diplomatic service. He was shy and steady, and like Vita, he was bisexual. The two were married the next year in 1913. Vita decorated Noel like a theater, one of her girlfriends, Rosamund, was a bridesmaid. Vida and Herald agreed to have an open marriage. They could pursue relationships with whomever they wanted, but they needed to be honest about it. Soon, Vita became entangled with a woman named violet. The two had dated on and off since they were young. They rekindled their romance and decided to run off to Monte Carlo and France together. Vita began dressing as a man and assumed the identity of Julian, a wounded soldier. She lived as Julian for four months, diving headfirst and deeply into the relationship with violet. Vida even wrote a last will for herself as though she were dying, and Julian was the survivor. Then Julian and violet decided to elope. On Valentine's Day, violet's husband and Harold flew to France in a two seater plane. After much convincing, they returned eventually with their respective wives. Vida and Herald soon rebalanced their relationship. Both of them continued to pursue outside romances, just with a bit less passion. That is, until Vita met the writer, Virginia Woolf. Vita was instantly drawn to Virginia's brilliance. Virginia was enchanted by Vita's worldly grace. In a diary entry, Virginia wrote about Vita. Stalking on legs like beech trees, pink glowing, grape clustered, pearl hung. There is her maturity and full breasted nest. Her being in short, what I have never been, a real woman. Virginia ended up writing her 1928 novel Orlando out of inspiration from Vita. Some have named Orlando as the first trans novel in the English language. In it, the titular character, a poet, shifts between genders. Orlando ends up living for hundreds of years meeting key literary figures amid many adventures. Vida's son, Nigel, later described the novel as the longest and most charming love letter in literature. Over the course of Vita and Virginia's relationship, the two women also sent each other scores of love letters. Their physical affair eventually ended. Vita was seeing other women, too. But Vita and Virginia remained close for decades until Virginia's death. Virginia also proved something of a muse for Vita. Vita started publishing her own work with Hogarth press, which Virginia had started with her husband Leonard. In 1930, Hogarth press published one of Vida's most successful novels the edwardians. She was seen as a popular writer at the time even more so than Virginia. But even then, Vida knew that Virginia's writing was transcendent. Vida and Harold remained married until Vida's death in 1962. The couple was entwined in companionship until the end. Between the two of them, they published more than 70 books. And Vida, who later in life found endless mystery and stillness and botany. Wrote a gardening column until the last year of her life. All.

"And it was just something fun, but man, it just makes you feel so much better. I also love using wide angle vision. Are you familiar with that concept? Yeah, that's so wonderful, especially since we're behind computer screens all the time. Yeah. Yeah. Great. Great, great great. Wow. So in terms of your tell us a little bit more about your Vita coaching, I'm really curious about this. Oh my God, it's so juicy. It's so amazing. So I joined this program a year and a half ago. Leila Martin is a really well world renowned. Wood call her love sex relationships coach beyond. She's an educator, a sex educator. She studied in Stanford before it was cool. So she is really a trailblazer. It's just really young but my God, is this woman incredibly powerful. So she's designed this program to educate what people that embody the concept of being female either as transgender or as binary or even as a non binary, but they're still have a female identifying body. The idea being to have those types of people learn different things that are in the realm of the world of love sex and relationships so that may start off as relationship with yourself. Recognizing the things that are maybe your triggers, the things that maybe within you that may be stopping you from allowing yourself to be that full encompassed and embodied person you want to be recognizing how you can elevate yourself and how you can remove things who don't want to have in your field of life. That's one aspect then getting into the juiciness of what actually sex is or what it can be and what it is for different people and how you can tap into different relationships too. Everything under the world of sex. So that's body love. This painting behind me was inspired by the 7th chakra, which was painted right as I was entering this coaching program. So it was interesting that this was the energy I was drawing in before I even started the program. But I really find that allowing ourselves to honor this power that in India we call it shakti, the kundalini, the energy force, the life force that we all have, whether you're male or female, we all have this life force. So then we do a lot of work around the whole idea of releasing blocks that you could be holding onto from that. Because I'm a reiki master, I already understood the energetic pieces of that, but she'll teach that concept to people that don't know that. So you walk away from this coaching program, learning so much about the energetic system of the human body..
Who Is (the Now Infamous) Dr. Robert Malone?
"First. Doctor Malone, welcome to the Salem radio network. Thank you very much, mister gorka and thank you for the opportunity to speak to you and to your audience today. Well, I could spend the next hour just rattling off your curriculum vitae and your various qualifications in the scientific world for those who didn't see your hours long interview with Joe who haven't seen all the interviews you've given with my friend and my former colleague Steve Bannon. Would you mind would you indulge us for a second for those across the country for whom you are a new name just to give us a prey see of your background and your relationship, for example, to the mRNA vaccines that are so in the news currently? Well, for your audience, I have been vetted and have secret clearance with Department of Defense. I've won over $8 billion or managed them for in government grants and contracts. I typically work very closely with the Department of Defense defense threat reduction agency. Kim biodefense group and have for decades, I have been a vaccine developer and innovator for well over 30 years as when I was a graduate student, I had a series of discoveries that led to 9 issued U.S. patents and numerous international patents that include all of the core technology for what we call RNA and DNA vaccines, including the first proof of concept reduction to practice using an RNA vaccine in a mouse model to produce immune responses against the envelope glycoprotein of aids. So an aids vaccine candidate my first major contract was with as a newly minted MD intern at UC Davis was with the Department of the Navy for development of an aids vaccine. I am trained at northwestern university for my NDI hold a license in the state of Maryland. I'm trained in my graduate studies at the salk institute and UC San Diego undergraduate biochemistry UC Davis multiple research fellowships at UC Davis in the department of pathology was an academic for well over a decade reaching associate professor level at the uniformed services university of the health sciences. So that's the DoD medical school. In D.C., I have been involved in way too many outbreaks intimately. I spearheaded for DoD for quite a while. The development of their Ebola vaccine candidate, which eventually I brought murk in. It was licensed to American. It's now the licensed Ebola vaccine. I've worked on flu vaccines. I've worked on literally all the biodefense vaccines used to work under contract directly for DoD at dying port vaccine company.

"And I don't think we need a dedicated handheld to play those type of things anymore. I think what about you? I think that dedicated handhelds are more popular than ever. And in many ways, savita was really ahead of its time, the way that it came out in an era where digital delivery was still in its early days. And indie development was kind of in a different place. The Vita did not support Indies. Until kind of later in its life, like in a big way. And the switch in many ways took all of the lessons from the Vita and went and ended up being a large success. Now Sony, I think it's handhelds have been kind of overrated or their lifespan, people always say, oh, Sony. They took all the wrong lessons from handheld. They didn't understand how to make a handheld system successful. But the PSP was actually very successful. And I think that they would potentially have an opportunity if they wanted to make a veto two is first of all, that would stir up so much excitement. So many people would be like, I mean, day one, especially if it had some kind of cloud support or that kind of thing to be able to properly play PS5 games on it, or example, because how base gaming is more popular than ever and yeah, I think that if they went ahead and announced a Vita two as long as they weren't doing proprietary memory cards again, they could have a hip hop hands. But I don't think they're going to unfortunately. Yeah, I wouldn't say those memory cards were the only thing that killed the Vita certainly to your point. I do definitely think it was a few years too early for a device like that, especially within PlayStation. But yeah, that really didn't help, especially trying to sell people on the price point of that thing. It was a bit of a nightmare to go shopping for that. But to your point of and obviously it's funny to say because it is obviously such a marketing beat that so many of these companies are trying to tie into, but cloud based gaming is becoming so much more of a thing that these bigger companies are pushing. And I was curious in that respect of do either of you do much remote play gaming, either either on PlayStation or on Xbox as well via their cloud stuff. I think it's still pretty early on with a lot of these. I don't think Xbox is fully rolled out. It's cloud based gaming at this point. So I haven't really had an opportunity to dabble in it too much in the same goes with Sony. It feels like really early days, but I'm a big believer in cloud based remote gaming as more and more of a thing going forward stadia. Make fun of the stadium that we want. But stadia sort of had the right of it. It just didn't have the software support. Kind of like how the Dreamcast was ahead of the game in terms of online play. I do think that you have a couple of years. We're going to be able to be able to play games on practically, and they device and that includes dedicated handhelds. But in the meantime, I'm getting my analog pocket. I'm just going to be very happy. That's a good call. Yeah. I've gone for a playdate, which is very much probably the opposite of that. But do you actually have one yet? No, not prank. I want to so badly. I know it's a gimmick, but man. Very excited. I didn't bring. But Jada, what about you? Have you done much remote play or used any cloud based stuff recently? I've done is when I'm away when I'm traveling and I take my Vita with me and I'm remote playing from my PS4 or PS5 playing game straight off of that. I remember a while back, I was really big into apex. I still am, but back when it was brand new. I was like, I don't want to miss any time in this season. I took my Vita with me and I was playing remote playing apex legends on my PS Vita from my PS4. And it surprisingly worked well. The only downside was there was because the Vita buttons are analog sticks. You can't click in. I was down two buttons, so I had to remove to commands. So I had to choose between having my map or the ping system and basically I chose the ping system because I was like, it's better for me to communicate since I don't have a mic right now to talk with my allies and to be able to look at the map. So I was like, you guys just have to guide me wherever we're going. Because I have no idea where the circle is closing. But it was a blast. And I won a game. So, you know what? It works. I'm really impressed. I only got one kill and I think 280 damage, but I still like, you know, that's better than some people's regular games. So I'll take it. With that kind of input delay and you're removing commands? That's insane. You must be really good. I'm no pro, but I'm old man. You can go pro at the Vita back in the day. Yeah. Yeah, no, exactly. You could go pro. But that was the problem with the Vita back in the day was that you had the remote play through the PS4 and everything. But it was a combination of the Vita didn't have enough didn't have enough buttons. You're using the rare touch pad in some instances. So the shoulder buttons in particular were a complete nightmare. And then the input delay was really heavy even when you were playing at home, for example. So I'm hoping ten years later that things are a lot better going forward. Yeah, it's definitely technology that still feels like it. It's improved, but still can always continue. I tend to do a little bit of remote play I've been doing a lot of persona 5 on the royal playthrough that I'm doing. And I used to go. I used it on my mobile phone and it's great if I have a backbone controller. But I wouldn't want to just remote play with the touch screen and not really having a lot of options because it then obscures the screen completely. So it's like, if you go out of your way to find a good attachment for your phone, remote play is a viable option. I guess you don't need a PlayStation, portable device, because my phone can do it. But yeah, there is still a lag, even within as you were saying, even now, within my own home, I have really solid Internet and sometimes even from one room over my PlayStation just as I have no idea what attack you were trying to do sorry and just wanted to jump. You wanted to jump off the ledge, right? Exactly. Yeah. And it's like, I can barely even jump in this game. How is that an option at that one point? So yeah, it's only something I've used with slower or turn based games like that because I am afraid of more twitchy action really precise timing demand and stuff though it is. I guess great to hear dated that you were able to win a match. That gives me a little bit of hope. So for you this is my question for all of you. Yeah. If Sony were to make a beta two, what would it need to do to make the beta two successful? Who? That is a very good option. I'll start off. And I think it needs to have some very well connected to the PS5. It needs to be able to I need to be able to basically anything I want to do on my PS5. I need to be able to do on my Vita. So it can basically act as a controller away from home. That would be the biggest thing for me because there was a lot of features that you just couldn't take advantage of on the PS4 or on the Vita with the PS4, or the PS3, I think back in the day, you could still link those up if I remember, right? And so that was kind of a let down for me, but I think if they came correct with the right options and abilities and connection, connectability, I guess is the word I'm looking for with the PS5 in the veta two. That would be for me. And then also just library. I think it's really going to it needs the library to support it. So it's a tough thing. Sorry, go ahead, join. Jordan bush also works. One of my first weeks at IGN, Brian altano called me Donny jorn bush as a joke. I just always loved that as the silliest permit of my name. But no, yeah, I think like library and just like, honestly, it would come down probably in terms of what I want from it and what in terms of what I think it needs to succeed or probably slightly different. But I do think at the end of the day, Sony would need it to be pretty cost competitive. And to give you a reason to want your PlayStation experience on the go..

"Beyond and hello everyone, my name is Jonathan dornbush, and this is podcast beyond IGN's weekly PlayStation show where we talk about all of the biggest news in the world of PlayStation. And now that we've all finally been able to come down from just the nonstop thrills of last week's state of play. We have a few other talks that we're going to get into this week. But before we get there, I'm joined by Jada Griffin. Hello, hello. Hello, welcome back to the show. And appearing for the first time on podcast beyond cat Bailey. Hello everybody. I'm still recovering from the excitement, post pounding thrills of that state of play. It was incredible, of course. It's why you couldn't be on beyond last week because you were just too shaken. By all of the reveals. There's so much news to cover from that particular event. It lasted us one whole segment of last week show. But it's great to have you on for those who don't know cat. You can see cat on Nintendo voice chat and also, of course, is our senior news editor and is doing phenomenal work with our amazing news team to get you all the news you need to know. Thank you so much. Of course. It's my old team and it's great to see it in such amazing hands. You're feeling good. I possessive of your old team. How dare you take them away from me? No, it's been awesome to see all the incredible work. You all have been doing and very excited to have you on the show this week. Of course, of course, we've got some news speaking of to jump into that we will in a little bit. But I did want to start off with a little bit of a broader topic that kind of was a suggestion from Mark Medina who couldn't be on this week due to scheduling. But was something that we were I think surprisingly to my expectations at least suddenly brought everyone together in our beyond slack group. And that was very heartening, Lisa, talk of the Playstation Vita. And the reason this all came about was thanks to PlayStation's own true hay yoshida, tweeting out an image of playing Horizon Zero Dawn on the steam deck. And this image sort of made the rounds, everyone was really excited to see obviously horizon running on the steam deck saying it was running well and all these sorts of things was obviously exciting. But it brought to mind, obviously, the Playstation Vita and the fact that, well, we did have PlayStation handheld opportunities previously. But now we're in sort of a case where the steam deck may be the closest we get to a Playstation Vita too. So I want to talk about all of that what that means what we feel about that. And I guess just on the first topic of it because we didn't really touch on it too much when the steam deck was announced. But Jade I'll start with you, are you planning on getting a seam dick? You have one pre ordered, what's your plans there? Yeah, I've got one pre ordered, unfortunately, I'm going to miss the Q four window. I'm going to get mine in Q one of next year. But I'm super excited. There's a lot of games in my steam library. I've got so many categories set up for games that I'm just probably never going to get to, but now I might actually have a chance to get to, so I'm going to have to go in and rework all of my categories on my steam library because there's I don't know 800 games. I buy too many games starting steam sales. And I need to stop. That's what they're there for. I mean, yeah, steam is my library of amazing games that I will maybe one day get to is kind of as it stands right now. But what about your are you planning on getting one or have you held off? Oh yeah, I'm definitely getting a steam dick. I am a mobile device addict. I get every single one of them. I had a couple different PSPs. I had a beta. I have all of the various Nintendo handhelds and everything. So the second that the steam deck was announced, I was like, oh, heck yeah, I'm going to be getting this and playing whatever the heck, you know, wilderness, I suppose, since it's still on steam on the steam deck. I'm looking forward to playing super robot wars 30 from the PC version on the steam deck. I'm curious to see how the games kind of work together with the proton operating system seeing that horizon zero dog seems to be running okay on steam deck is very promising, especially a sense Horizon Zero Dawn when it first came out on PC. There were some reports of various issues with it. Some bugs that kind of thing. So seeing that maybe it'll be okay on steam deck is a very positive thing for me to be able to see. However, I will say that the Ida had a one advantage or the steam deck. And that is, had an oled screen versus the LCD screen. Well, let's screens are better. Oh, yeah. I mean, I assumed you were going to go for the back touch pad, which I think we can all agree. It was the highlight of the Vida. Oh my God. FIFA on that thing. It was the worst. Didn't use the touchpad. Oh yeah. When you're trying to shoot, like I would accidentally shoot all the time with that rare touch pad when I was playing FIFA. 2012, or whatever. Oh my God. Yeah, I think still probably tear away is probably the best and really only smart usage of that back touch pad. But no, you know, the conversation we were all having in slack, and obviously I made sure to grab it before we started the show is how much we love this thing and obviously sad state that the Vita kind of dwindled in its life. But I think more than anything, the Vita was once sold on the promise of getting to play PlayStation console quality games on the go. It then sort of transformed into this life of being basically the non steam indie go to where like, hey, if you wanted to play indie games and you could have them on the go, the veto was the machine to go to for that. Obviously, the switch kind of supplanted it there and whatnot. But now maybe the steam deck can kind of become it successor. But I guess I'm curious from the both of you as people who are interested in the same deck and I'm curious to see what happens there and see how games run. Do you feel like PlayStation is missing an opportunity to have a handheld device whether something like the steam deck of a really great essentially remote play system or a proprietary thing? Do you think they're missing an opportunity or do you think it makes sense that they haven't really tried to reenter that market? That's an interesting question. You know, I say yes and no. I say yes because, you know, obviously there's a lot of very loyal fans like all of us included that loved our vitas loved our PSPs. There's a lot of great experiences that you just couldn't get anywhere else. And also it enabled smaller developers to bring games to the market via the Vita or the PSP. Gamers might have missed otherwise. But in the same vein, I say no, because, you know, Nintendo is somewhat moving out of this handheld space. The yes, the switch is still handheld. You can play it, take it with you on the go. But you see that they're not re upping and diving back into the DS or trying to tackle that market. They're trying to combine the market. And go that direction, because mobile phones now are getting all these great games. And we see games like Final Fantasy, the shiner's first soldier I think is what it's called is the battle Royale from square inches and final fantasies coming to mobile. And there's a ton of other games that are just, I mean, the mobile..

I'm thinking of the way. Oh goon sounds yes but yeah no i. I'm excited about this this whole story. Everybody is related job of bringing this character forward and even if it's not always in the language in the art it feels like it's right now because a lot of the stuff that he's going to. We've gone to other people who are older. Do you have discussions. Besides what you mentioned already about moving forward with this character and making it more in the world degen's e yeah when when i first got to speak. Actually whenever i've spoken to reggie and dennis especially talking about all the things the medically that we wanted to do that was that was one of the things that was really important to make it feel as relevant as possible to right now while still kind of giving it a little bit of timelessness right like people are always obsessed with these evergreen stories. And i think that you can have evergreen stories that are really great. Beatles have very specifically contextual stories. That are really great. And so it's coming out now and like yes. There are a lot of fans that are my age. That wanna buy this book right. Who who is you know. They're all about the cartoon or all about the original comics but that's not our target audience. This is a this is a book for teens right now so it should be something that is relatable to them right now. So yeah like. That's really what we wanted to do and then working with nick i think is is he gives. I'm much older than he gives me that vibrant now energy you know. He's he's in his twenties so he's still he's still much more connected to that kind of feeling deny am so. I take a lot of that from him. we'll also i think it also comes out in his work. I know you're a manga. Anime shan yet maga was your first love definitely his. I love so there. Are these moments especially in the action season stuff. That definitely feel. Have that mon the field. How excited would you the first time you saw the art of he created. Oh i flipped out. I thought that when. I saw his designs that he had just done for fun. Like like like oh this this is perfect. Like this guy gets even. His pinups are dynamic jokes about hector's having electric cars aside right like this kid has electric power. He should feel like that he should feel dynamic in connecticut. And and maybe a little bit all over the place but not too much still. You can still follow. What's going on. But that energy. When i saw his stuff i was like. Oh this is this is perfect. This is the one off the last question that i would give you is. What is the one thing that you wish people would ask you about this book that nobody ever asked you. I wish that we as a team got asked more about why it was important to builds not just virgils character but his family and friends the way we did why we introduced this other character. Darius to me i. I didn't create that character. That was reggie. I had a choice about whether or not he will come forward into the book as opposed to just saying in in the missouri issue and i was like no..

And nick is super into a two. And so conroy was played with how information than gets twisted right and i won't spoil anything or anything like that but there is this kind of through line where that we floor through the character of various where he saw the truth but now he seeing how how things get twisted sit in how the victims get blamed in get demonized and that kind of stuff and he wants to fight against that whereas virgil living that experience right and he's also living the trauma. Yeah and that was another thing too that like to me. Like accused of being too angry do said at first. Like yoda's kid watched all his friends like melt and die. Like i would not be okay. I'm very happy. Go lucky person you know. I'm very optimistic person. And that's why virgil appeals. to me. Personally he sees really mess up stuff and then he's like but we could do better. But i would need a minute like i would be angry. I would be so angry. And he scared right he has. His body is changing in ways. That like. he doesn't know what's going on and he's afraid that he's gonna either hurt people right or or cause someone to be hurt like. He's he's gone through a lot. I think he needs to be allowed to process those feelings. Yeah no absolutely. And i also think that in a dumpster fire that was twenty twenty. It's like from zero to twenty twenty. Is this violent that like people were expecting him to bounce back immediately and to me i was like he's going to get there because that's who he is at. Its core but we cannot expect children to go through these traumas and immediately be okay. We can expect anybody. Yeah nobody but especially not children like it is okay to be angry to be confused to be sad. It doesn't make you a weak person..

Chris conroy editor and i was told i believe it was sold straight off the bat that it was a bake off which makes me really nervous so very stressful thing. Because i at this point. I know so many people don't like i don't want to own wanna like fistfight like you know i grew up with this stuff like i remember the comics. I remember the you know the cartoon and all that kind of stuff sounds like all right. Look i was going to say no. And then i was like i have to have to try right so but by bake off you mean. Do you have to pitch something. Yeah i had to pitch it and there was multiple people pitching. I wasn't told who so it was a blind bake off. Hate that term. Those i just call it bake off so you kind of just developing a pitch with sometimes with an artist of mine and sometimes not. They did. Tell me like this. Is the person that we would love to. Have you worked with and it was nick. So yeah i kind of developed something. After talking to reggie and dennis and conroy altogether and they seemed like they chose my. But that's great. So what was one thing that you definitely wanted to do going in that you knew like you grew up with this character but you knew i mean look we can all evacuate milestone ago. Some of this stuff might not hold up right now. Right right right. I- i reread a bunch of that stuff to to kind of get into the mindset to find the core of the character to bring forward and that's really what i wanted to do. I think that the stuff in the was of its time in a good way. You're like this is what was going on at the time. These are the conversations. And i was like we need to do that for now. What are the conversations that we're having. What are the struggles that you know like kids. They're having an you know right now. And then taking the core of virgil you know of his character and translating that into a more contemporary context. I think that like one of the things that i've always really liked about the character that i hoped to replicate an more contemporary away. Was that you know he's weird. He's a weirdo. Is a weird smart kid who plays like dungeons and dragons with his friends and like you know. He's he's he's kind of a fan boy like he likes superhero stuff he wants to. He wants to be a good person. And i think that like that's something that's really beautiful. I think that looks different than it. Did you know ninety three right now partially because people are just have more access to information so you you make different decisions based on that but also just because the world has changed so rapidly in the last thirty years eight years so yeah that that was kind of what i wanted to.

And as i understand it being eligible for playoff contention so in other words. You're going to be forced to get a vaccine or you're going to lose your job in the nfl.

You're a black woman but initially it was just. It was like the crazies. If you've ever seen that movie was is much more like you know people flipping out twenty eight days later kind of rage rage zombies which made sense at the time but the best thing about comics is collaborating right.

I mean i learned so many things i think the biggest and most of hardest transition was learning how to not micromanage lane had to step back and what that lever really looks like. I really thought that if something wasn't right or would. I thought it should be that me getting in there and helping and doing was the right thing but actually that can make people feel unempowered can make them feel not trusted and if you don't think they can do it on their own and so i have an effort to try and be supportive meaning if i don't think that it's exactly where it should be. I'm going to help you get there instead of just walking away. Make you fix it. Because i had felt anxious around my own experience of feeling like god. I'm not sure what this person wants. And i'm not exactly sure what to do how to fix it and i just had to figure it out and part of that figuring it out. You need to figure it out yourself and allowing people to do that allowing people to make mistakes. There's no vita wrong particularly in fashion. I mean obviously you can hit the mark with something and the client can love it but the fact matter as it could go a million ways. There's no right. China allow people to experiment and to have their own voice within that. It's one of the hardest things. Because i think you are particularly in fashion. You're wanting to create a look but at the same time that looking screen amalgamating of a lot of people's ideas because it's not always that great when it's just one you can get so much more when there's a group of people who are having a bigger voice and channeling that in a healthy encouraging way is not easy.

I'm going to have to just pause and step back. He knowingly and put on my automaton self he don't just six right yeah they're going to throw out these offensive stereotypes thinking that they've done me and all of my community of favor because now we're represented in a big way right. It's like nah exactly. So what are your goals as a writer at this point in your career q. Actually that would that. Thank you for that question. So my very very favorite book was that i wrote was published by an academic publisher. And i'm always hearing how people cannot afford. It is outrageously expensive. Visit was done for libraries to the ordered by libraries to sit in libraries for years. Or so it's just not affordable. So one goal i have if i don achieve anything else is to get that book out there in a in some kind of paperback format which the publisher did initially offer. It's just that he to change the title. And i thought at the title was you'll understand so offensive that even though i desperately wanted it to paperback and available to everybody and put into major bookstores. I was going to budge on that title. And i couldn't do it so one goal. I have is to get that book. The eighteen fifty-five murder case of missouri bursa celia which is a true story to get it republished by popular press. I really hope that can happen but have another goal. Because i've been writing short stories throughout my career as a professor. Now i have also gone act writing longer pieces. So they are novella length along noga. I'm finishing the second of those. And i had just given myself carte lunch. So they are very scifi horror right. they're very turns out. Perfect for the pandemic very dystopia society you know. And and then the trapped individuals and their domestic relationships inci that outrageously dystopia inside and course there african americ- and it's my chance to tell stories. The way i used to tell them to myself as a child. This is what i m putting it unapologetically on the page. I think that's wonderful. That's wonderful writing your vacations.

I think half a half of a century it shifts. He knows shifts. I know as a as a teenager. I wrote several poems day. It was just how i survived and i as a slightly younger person. I like to ride to try to write a stories and i didn't really have a name for them and so sometimes they'd be very long. I kept running stories in my head that i would entertain myself with or or talk myself to sleep with that night and then as an adult i mean. I stopped when i started having children when i was married. The only thing. I was still riding my diary a journal to tell myself stories to go to sleep as well.

Why Is My Arborvitae Turning Brown from the Ground Up?
"We had a question today. From dave who says he has several mature arba vita and they're starting to turn brown from the bottom up about two feet and he's wondering what could be causing that. And what do you think he should do. Okay now maturity is is hard to Speak to without looking. However when he says larger provided that are maturing then my very first thought is as normal plants lou. Well as they grow at the top they start by age losing energy in the lower part of the plant. It just is a natural consequence is kind of like kind of like my hairline ono that any on mark There may be nothing wrong with his plants other than age I don't know how to guide him other than to say that this might be normal. Maybe can't be changed and he should sink then of short plants that he can put in front of those that is the vita and and fill in that blank space now it is again common when there's vibrant growth in the top which is expected for that lower area to out. Now this is one. You'll have to study. Because where i am not into the word topping. When it comes to plants. I have done so now. It doesn't change what is already void area however if he should shorten those plants within reason and no more than maybe twenty percent he can slow down and there's a lot of l. non science and but he can slow down the growth at the top just a little bit and therefore help retains some of the foliage at the bottom just because it causes the plant to grow in a little different way. Now we're not talking about cutting them in half anything of that nature and it isn't a one hundred percent situation but i know that can help Then it comes to shade. If these maturing plants are in more shade or something in front of them Do against the sun's exposure that lack of light or reduction of light can indeed cause a plant to simply shall we say move on with top growth Shade can be a factor. I seriously doubt that there is a disease or insect however it is possible. So do the do the bag worm. Check for sure looking to see if they're not eating things up as they shouldn't Check on spring growth and on a calm day but a piece of white paper under that lower foliage and smack the foliage a little bit let the debris fall on the white page then in. I don't know if i were ten seconds. The little spider mites that might be in there we'll have righted themselves in hanging onto the paper. Then just tip the paper enough to let the extra debris fall off and then if you see little spots that are moving and these little spots will be smaller than the period at the end of a sentence but you can. You can rub your finger over them. And if you see a red smear you know you've got a treat for spider mites then The other thing just as keeping them. In good growth maturing plants Have a greater distribution of energy inside the plant in terms of from route. Two top just be sure that they may be are lightly mulched to keep the soil somewhat more moist and cool in the summertime Those things i bail. I'm gonna go back to the fact that the are. This is just an aging factor. Now there can also be bunnies which is not likely at all but bunnies and things that will eat the lower foliage so he he has to check to see whether it's just simply dead or whether it's been eaten and bitten off.

It's a lifestyle that agrees with us and when we'd like to keep doing for some time however at some point age will force us to settle down. The trick is deciding when that is act too soon and we miss out on xtra wandering wait too long and i might not have the energy left to easily make the transition but sometime in the next five years. There's a better than even chance that will be buying a final years house to that end we've had money growing. In a taxable account invested in of course vitae ax as i track this against the eventual sale to fund the house. I realized that we be on the hook. For a twenty percent capital gains tax until at least this new market selloff suddenly that capital gain was disappearing indeed with an eight percent drop today it would be completely gone so with the market down about six point. Three or four percent figuring that we'd be close enough. I put in the cell order and moved from visa x to our money market fund conveniently by the market's close. It was down seven point six percent almost exactly when i need it. Good luck so with this sale. I now have the capital freely available and will oh little to no capital gains tax at the same time then sold an equivalent amount of e b t lx bonds and bought v tsa stocks in an ira. Because this was done in an ira. There's no tax consequence. The net effect is that i have moved bonds from the ira and stocks into it again. While freeing up money for the purchase with no capital gains tax to be paid at the end of the day our asset allocation remains the same. This is not a bet that the market has bottomed cuna. Wouldn't you have been better off if the market had continued to rise even if you had to pay the capital gains tax of course but as i learned playing poker. You play the cards. You're dealt not the ones you wish you had. If i had a crystal ball i would have sold before the drop and happily pay the tax. But i didn't. This market declines simply offered an opportunity. And i took it. I prefer the market. Never went down. And i always could sell it again. The market doesn't care about my preferences. Why not wait to see. If the market drops further that way you not only avoid the capital gain but gets a harvest to capitol lost. I want to preserve as much capital as possible for the future purpose. Selling break even is the sweet spot for this gambit. Doesn't this run afoul of the irs. Wash sale rules my thanks to the several readers who raises question and especially to john are who suggested i added here. This was my reply to james. The first who raises question wash sales apply to selling at a loss from the article. You linked to quote loss from wash sales of stock or securities. This ruling provides that if an individual cells stock or securities for a loss and causes his or her ira or roth ira to purchase substantially identical stock or securities within a specified period the loss on the sale of the stock or securities is disallowed under the section ten ninety one of the and the individuals basis. In the ira or roth ira is not increased by virtue of section ten ninety one d end quote in my case the objective was to sell at break even with neither. A loss oregon. Because life isn't perfect. There will likely be a small gain or loss when the dust settles. But it'll be too small to worry about. Why did you move into a money. Market fund rather than bonds with v bt lx mostly because it was easier. And i wanted to get the order in before the market closed i might move into bonds later. Wait but are in bonds. Best held in an ira ordinarily. Yes but remember. This was done to free up capital from stocks for potential future spending money you intend to spend in the next five years or so is best held in cash which is a money market fund is or boss planning any further moves as noted in the addendum to my last post when the market was down about fifteen percent on february twenty eighth. I moved some v. b. t. l. x. to v. Tsa ex if the market continues to drop. I'll do more of that. Taking advantage of drops like this are what bonds or four. Isn't this scary. No wrestling grizzly bear in your garden is scary but this time is different right. Nope every market drop feels like this. Time is different some day. If it truly is nothing will matter. Least of all how. You're invested example 1963 brink of nuclear war between the ussr and the usa a truly civilization ending possibility. Great time to buy no war market goes up. War market doesn't matter.
Diabetes Mellitus with Dr. Dennis Bruemmer
"Take hardy and hurts summit clear so excited for this installment of our cardiovascular prevention series with the deep dive into diabetes. Which i think you'll learn by the end of the episode is so important for us. Be attention to. We're joined by a phenomenal and true. Genuine in the field. Dr dennis brumer hughes. The director of the center for cardia met about health in the section of preventive cardiology and rehabilitation. At the cleveland clinic. Dr boomer earned his md and degrees from the university of hamburg in germany following residency training in internal medicine and cardiology in berlin docker boomer completed a research fellowship as the diabetes center fellow in the department at ucla. He is board certified in internal medicine and chronology hardy vascular disease and cardiac graffiti quite a unique combination. Dr boomers research is focused on mechanisms of atherosclerosis and risk factor intervention for the prevention of coronary artery disease soccer. It's such a pleasure to invite you to the show success. have you on. And as i invite you. I'm going to just reflect on your unique training path and we were just discussing before we started recording. Here that there's going to be a probably a lot of interest. In pursuing some sort of combined die batali cardiovascular education for court in the future. But would you mind just telling us how you got interested in really devoting yourself to cardio metabolic disease and diabetes in general. Absolutely am so first of all i. I'm super thrilled to be here. And i i'm so excited to be talking to the nerds here tonight so i. I think it's phenomenal. What you guys are doing and again. I very much appreciate the opportunity here so so i was. I'm kind of bridge between endocrinology in cardiology back in germany. I did my thesis. Actually in endocrinology lie protein metabolism. And that kind of got me interested in cardiology. I went to pursue cardiology training back in germany and then research fellowship at ucla. I was supposed to go back after that to germany. But i decided to stay and then obviously being a foreign Repeated training and i was always torn between the endocrine in preventive cardiology aspect than truecar ideologies. So i ultimately decided. I'm just gonna do both so. I did endocrinology fellowship and cardiologist fellowship by the university of kentucky. I had a phenomenal time. There and kind of still even now much of what we do in cardiology is really prevention. And that much of it. This endocrinology so i think these sub specialties really are complementary in or very closely together but let me say on behalf of everyone here at the clinic. How glad we are that. You decided not to go back and stayed here. Join us over here as a faculty because you've just added tremendous value to the program and you've been such an incredible resource for all of us. Thank you for being here. Yes dr burin. And i extend that thank you. Because you know you've stayed here. We are talking to the nerds. I think this is a totally fortunate. And i am really happy to benefit from your stay here now. We are very excited to dive into cardio dive tallahassee which begs the question dr boomer we are cardio nerds why should cardiologists focus on diabetes. I mean why not. Just refer are diabetic patients to endocrinologist or leave the to their primary care doctors. Yeah i think. I think that's kind of the common theme and that is the current care. We leave it to others in cardiology. Now i think that is sub optimal. I think we as cardiologists we see these patients all the time i mean when is ever a patient. In the cath. Lab that presents with an semi or stemming that doesn't have diabetes so we do see the far spectrum of this disease of cardiovascular complications that arise of having ama- diagnosis of diabetes. So i think we have to be involved in managing this. I think to a minimum. We should referred patients to primary care or make sure that the diabetes is. What managed or console endocrinology now as as we all know as physicians quite frequently. Not even that happens so and there's good evidence for that if you look at registries just about six percent of diabetic patients with cardiovascular disease actually get appropriate care for their diabetes and cardiovascular conditions as you know that vitas says associated with the two to four fold increase in risk it is a cardiovascular risk equivalent termed many many years ago seventy percent of our acute coronary syndrome patients have diabetes. So you you could argue. Yes we leave it to primary care but or the endocrinologist but keep in mind that endocrinologists currently see about five percent of the patient population with diabetes.
