A highlight from S13 E11 Writer & Editor: Art, Justice, Culture
"Hello, welcome to The Loney Show. I'm your host, John Mayolone. In this episode, don't have any regulars, because reasons, I guess. As for our guest, he's from Exeter in the United Kingdom. He is a writer, artist, and also editor. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Sean B .W. Parker. Hello, thanks very much. Nice to be here. Anytime. So, how's life? Life's fine. It's in the middle of a heatwave here on the Sussex coast in England, so we're burning up, but getting on with work, you know. Oh yeah, same here. So, have you been up too much recently? Well, I'm constantly editing and writing. It's what I do, and some painting as well. So, at the times that we're not absolutely melting here, I was at the falsely accused day yesterday up in London, supporting other colleagues there outside New Scotland Yard, so that was exciting. Ah, okay. That's pretty cool. So, as a writer, artist, and or editor, how long have you been going on for? Well, I started to write at the age of 14, so back in 1989, and had my first poem published in 1995 in the local paper, and for the last 10 years, since 2014, I've published eight books and contributed to four more. So, I mean, I've been doing it for 30 years, but as a professional, in inverted commas, for about 10. Nice. What inspired you to become a writer? Probably Mr Robert Smith of The Cure, I think, in the first instance, back then in the 80s, understanding the worlds that these artists can take you to. And then discovering Mr Dylan Thomas, the poet from South Wales, was revelatory in my 20s. So, putting those together with various, the fact that when you enter into a world of verse or poem, can kind of take you to another place is very beautiful, and I'm an enthusiast of the English language. And so, yeah, it just all comes from some kind of inside source that you can't really locate. Ah, fabulous. And what about artists and editor? At what point did those inspirations came along? I've always been interested in art itself. I got my degree from the University for the Creative Arts in Surrey, around the millennium, and got a Master's there as well. And my speciality was in abstract painting and video art. I've continued to paint, given a chance. And so that's always been undercurrent. I've never really been out there kind of marketing myself in the art world for unknown reasons, but for the fact that I'm much more confident in writing and it's more flexible and there are more opportunities. But they do go hand in hand completely for me. So, yeah, I don't know if I answered. Yeah, that was a very good response. So where would you see yourself 20 years from now? 20 years from now? Well, I am very much a live in the moment kind of person and I don't go much before next week, beyond next week. But 20 years from now, of course, almost all artists I know would like to increase their reach at any stage. And that's part of what the podcast revolution is all about. And the independent way we can do that these days is fabulous. So you kind of connect up all these things. The albums on Spotify, the books on Amazon, the news on X. And you kind of tie all those things in together with brilliant kind of podcasts like this, who are able to tell the world about it. And there's this kind of subculture of kind of connected streams, which is really interesting. And we'll see what that leads to in 20 years time, if that is the established norm, which I'm sure it kind of will be. Nice, nice. Have you ever thought about living in a world that is literally nothing but gardens? I have never thought about that. But that sounds like a very nice idea and somewhat heavenly. But also possibly without the additions of the modern world, which I also like, like concrete and nightclubs and things. Ah, yes, of course.
A highlight from Shadows of a Silhouette - Fortune Favours The Fortunate
"Welcome to Let's Be Frank, the men's mental health podcast. Join us as we break the stigma, embrace vulnerability and prioritize mental health in men. Together, let's use your voice. Guys, welcome back to Let's Be Frank, the home of men's mental health. Today, we have got a brilliant rock and roll quarter in the house that go by the name of Shadows of a Silhouette. And the sound is a fusion of alternative, rebellious and personal vibes. Coming from the heart of England, this band has released over 25 original tracks on Spotify, iTunes and Amazon. We're joined by Nathan Tyler, who, along with friend Greece, have been creating music for four years, turning out more than 50 songs on SoundCloud and major platforms. Drawing inspiration from legends like Arctic Monkeys, Bowie and Nirvana, the music has even graced BBC introduces for the East Midlands. And they've rocked the Metrodome in Nottingham. They've also played the Quarry Stage during the Wyandotte Festival in front of 2000 fans, an experience that fueled their passion for music. This year, they have hit the main stage at Wyandotte Festival, producing an unforgettable show. So guys, girls, stay tuned as we dive into the guys world and discover what drives this band's unstoppable journey. But as always, let's check in with resident host Mr Ryan Smith. How are you doing, mate? What an introduction that was, eh? I'll tell you what the hell's going on. This is like the big time now, isn't it? This is just like, I'm going to say so rock and roll, but that's like, I think that's more like 60s rather than the 90s, I don't know. Anyway, I just know I'm older than most of this band put together. So, yeah, no, absolutely brilliant to get these guys on. I'm feeling good. Started watching the ice hockey today, you know, a little bit late jumping on with you just because of the ice hockey. But do you know what? I'm in a good place. So, yeah, guys, welcome to the show. How are you all doing? Well, thank you. Thank you for having us on. You say you're a lot older than us all put together, but we all know, mate, you're still 21 in that. Hard to show if it was, but we break through and still look like a one year old messing about. Bless you, bless you, bless you. Panthers or Steelers? Don't mention that second one. No, if you mention that second one, you mention that second one and we'll just stop this right now. All right. No, no, no. I didn't realise. That's all right then. That's all right then. Yeah, yeah, Panthers, Panthers through and through. No, but guys, honestly, welcome to the show. We've been throwing a couple of conversations back and forth for a bit now and it's finally here. So, you know what? Guys, introduce yourselves. Well, we're Shadows of a Silhouette and, of course, we're a four piece band from Derby. We just, Derbyshire, we try and focus on sounds that are a bit more like authentic, like through and through. Even all of us playing our own instruments on songs like you wouldn't think that to be something that you'd be lacking in the music industry. But actually, nowadays it's more dominated by electronic simulated sounds. I'm Nathan Brown, the lead singer. I've got Rhys Carter, lead guitarist. And Ferg's in Corfu at the minute, but we've also got Tyler Anderson, our drummer. Fantastic. So, yeah, guys, I managed to listen to your latest track that's going to be released, I think, later this month. You know, well, later in September. We're recording this at the beginning of September. But, you know, you're going to be releasing that one. I'll tell you what, I was listening to my car on the way back from Mansfield earlier and it's catchy and I get it. You know, it's I think it speaks. So, yeah, I'm looking forward to that being released. It's my personal favourite song that we've written for a long time. Yeah, it's fun to play in all life. Yeah, it's quite political. It's a banger. But, you know, it's really like a partial political. It doesn't really speak to supplement anybody else, any political party or belief system. It's more for the common man, isn't it? Yeah, it's just more for the common good side of politics. The politics doesn't actually get spoken about in politics. No, no. And, you know, I actually thought, you know, it actually reminded me of sort of Age of the Shadow puppets. Like Shadow puppets? Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. So, yeah, it's that sort of... You're sorry? It's funnily enough the first band I ever saw live, actually. Yeah, that's why it's had that sort of beat to it, that sort of rhythm to it. And it just, yeah, you know, it was good, it was good. Well, I'll take that. Anyway, no, absolutely. What was the whole process behind writing that song? So, what was your thinking behind it and kind of how long has it taken you to... Well, I had a riff kicking about from the start of lockdown, really. Obviously, we couldn't practice, so... We were writing other songs. Got me loop pedal, yeah, and got the riff down. But we didn't really touch it until about, when was it? Like January? It started kicking it about, didn't we? We got some drums on it, and then Nathan wrote, as he does with most of our tracks, wrote all the lyrics for it. And, yeah, it's... It came quite quick, though, didn't it? It was just one of them, like, kick your fingers movement when you and us rehearsing. And then it just, we just all looked at each other and just thought, this is awesome, this. And then Nathan's writing side to it. It just... Put the structure together. Put the structure together, and then, like I say, it was just about... The words just came straight out. It's this one. Yeah, it's what we opened up the main stage with one or two as well. Yeah, it's brilliant. It's quite... Yeah, like, straight in your face, isn't it? Tempo, it's got tempo, it's got attitude. It's like hitting a knockout punch in the first round. It is a cracker, it is truly a cracker. It is really a cracker. Yeah, the lyrics, the lyrics. And it was, as you say, it... It's just the whole idea of that track. Straight in your face. Yeah, that's what we wanted. It's a song to get people's attention, really. And then it's... You know, who are these? And then it's... We've got you in the palm of his hand then. Crick up your ears. Also, it's an expression of that... Those little thoughts we all have about, you know, on a daily basis, when we're considering what's going on in the world around us. It's just a... No. With our ability to create media, to add into the great ocean of it, we think certain songs come out in principle, or because of principle, that something to have been spoken like that, or in a way, just for some... It can be heard from somewhere by someone. It's just about the rich going rich and the poor going poor early on, isn't it? Well, it's about the trap. We're all trapped. It seems like we're... The fucking mouse trap's already come down over us, and we're all stuck, you know. But life keeps going by for everyone as an individual. But there's a stranglehold on a lot of us, personally, as people trying to get through this world, but it's so slow for some people who don't have to suffer it. So, looking at kind of that... You know, looking at the song, are you speaking from your own sort of backgrounds and stuff as well, your own experiences? I think it's kind of impossible not to, of course. Like, when you are writing Straight From the Heart, not all of our songs are, right? Because sometimes it's nice to write a song about an idea that doesn't paint a memory. It's just... But then again, on the other hand of that, a lot of our tunes are personal anyway. Especially over the last couple of years, with what's gone off with Reece and Nathan and stuff like that. So, it's a way that I sort of... I'm sure Nathan's probably the same as to get these thoughts that are in your head. I have to get them out on paper and write them down about lyrics or poetry and then channel that into some of that music, which then becomes something tangible. The thoughts that you've got in your head, for me, it's the perfect way to sort of... Say what you want over it. Yeah, get it out and... To make room. Then it becomes relatable, because although it's personal to you, other people can then relate to that and hear what you're saying. Like, yeah, I know what you're on about here. Well, certainly we want to know what it feels like when they can hear the fact that we're getting something off our chest in these songs. Yeah, yeah. Because it's not whitewashed at all, really. We all work full -time, full -time jobs. We didn't go to uni or study music or anything. We came together because we all... Look like rockin' art. Look like rockin' art. We think it's one of the best things in the world. It's a freedom from life. That's good the thing about music, where it doesn't matter what race you are, doesn't matter what religion you are, everybody can come together and just be in the same field or at a venue and enjoy the same thing. Everything goes out the window. It's a universal language. And there's a lot of culture where we come from, a lot of working culture of people working really hard, raising families, but not really making enough time for themselves. We come from an area in the East Midlands where lot a of insufferable mental health is right there on the surface, but people don't even talk about it. They all know what's going on with each other. I know Jack's got a question for you, but obviously we've just jumped on beforehand and where I live, it's actually, what, five, ten minutes from... Not even ten minutes, is it, from where a couple of you guys live? So I get what you're saying. You're looking at the smaller sort of outlying villages that are ex -coal mining places. It's a similar sort of state in Wales. It's a similar sort of state in Lancashire, Yorkshire and things like this. And it's these forgotten roots. And listening to that track that you've shared with us, you can really hear what you guys are trying to achieve. So it's more of an observation rather than a question. But I know Jack's got a question for you. Before we come, because obviously we're going to look at your personal journeys and kind of delve into there and prod around a little bit, but while we're on the subject of why not, I want to ask you guys, how was that experience going main stage? It didn't even seem like that much of... There was a feeling of being out of place, but also at the same time being exactly where we're going. Yeah, it wasn't imposter syndrome, but you feel like... The best thing is if you feel like you've earned it, but then you also feel that if you're not getting nervous for a gig like that, I think you've got to get nervous to some degree, because at the end of the day, you're entertaining people and everyone's around on you to put a good show out. And then we just hope we deliver. And that's like, it doesn't matter how much of a buzz we've got to have to play. And the first thing I said to people closest to me was, did you like enjoy it? It's not about us, it's about the fans. Yeah. But the experience is just... What was that feedback like? Oh, brilliant, yeah. Absolutely awesome.

I'm Josh, and there's Chuck, and this is Short Stuff. And we are going to talk about something that has been overlooked for far too long, which is the origins of the plus, minus, multiplication, division, and equal symbols. I thought this was really cool, by the way. You put this together with help from FASCO, Caltech, Science ABC, among other places. And I had never thought about this stuff because I'm not a math person, but I love origin stories. And so I thought this is really neat, especially the fact that these symbols came about to begin with because people, before they had these, you wrote out a math problem like this long word problem. But not like, you know, a train's traveling in this direction kind of thing. It's more like I have divided 10 into two parts and multiplying one of these by the other. The result was 21. Then you know that one of the parts is thing and the other is 10 minus thing. Right. That was an excerpt from a 9th century algebra book by the mathematician Muhammad ibn Musay Al -Kharwazmi. I'm pretty sure that's his name. Today, you would take that same formula and write it out as x times 10 minus x equals 21. Yeah. So simple. That's it. And that reveals why these things were so important. It just saves you so much time. So not only did it make writing an algebra book that much more attractive, it made teaching it that much faster. You might not have necessarily learned it any faster, but you definitely could teach these things faster with these notations rather than writing it out. And I also saw, Chuck, that some of those sentences that they would write, some people would put it into verse, metered verse, like poems. That takes a lot of time and it's unnecessary. Yeah. And especially at the time when you're writing with an eagle's feather and an inkwell. Sure. You know what I mean? That really drags too. It's not like you're just dashing this stuff off with a pencil. Nope. So some folks came along and changed all that. According to the VNR Concise Encyclopedia of Mathematics, hot read, the origin of the equal sign goes like this. A man named Robert Ricord, or Ricordae, was the royal court physician for King Edward VI and Queen Mary, and very influential mathematician in Wales. And he got tired of writing out equals over and over. So he thus proposed the equal sign because it is two little equal lines, and that's parallel equal lines. And I never thought about it, but it's brilliant. Yeah. He said a pair of parallels or twin lines of one length, and then he shows what he's talking about because no two things can be more equal. And there's a lot of extra vowels in those words, but he gets the point across. And he was saying like, this is such a great time saver. I'm so tired of saying is equal to. And he wrote it in a book called The Wet Stone of Wit. And of course, a wet stone is what you sharpen things with. So it sharpens your wit to read this book. I love that title. And it actually became very influential and well -read as far as 16th century math books go. And Robert Ricord is credited with coming up with the minus symbol and introducing it to his people back then. The equal sign, you mean? What did I say? Minus sign. Oh, just wait, Chuck. All right. Well, we're there. Plus and minus are what we use to indicate adding something and subtracting something, as everyone knows. The terms themselves come from Latin, where plus means more and minus means less. And the other thing is the plus symbol itself is also from the Latin word et et, meaning and, like this and that equals that, which is pretty great. So at one point there was a French philosopher named Nicole Oresme from the 14th century who used that plus sign as a shorthand for et, which is what they used to write. And at first it didn't take, right? I think like people weren't universally accepting this. Yeah, it wasn't until like the 16th or 17th century that it started to really kind of take off. I think the 16th century. And apparently there was competition at first too, that it wasn't just the plain old plus sign, that equal cross, that there were other crosses in the running too, including the Maltese cross. It's a great looking cross, but it takes a lot more time to write the Maltese cross out than it does to make a plus symbol. And the whole point of these things was to save time. So everybody said, yeah, Maltese cross, we like you, but we're going to go with the plus sign. That's right. So that's plus. We got equals, we got plus, minus now. In Europe, there was an Italian mathematician named Luca Pacioli. And Luca was using the symbol P with a little line over it for plus, an M with a little line over it for minus. And no one's exactly sure, but it seems to be that the M was just dropped, right? And then the minus sign, because we already had a plus sign, became the minus sign. Yeah. So you don't need the plus sign. Forget you P with the tilde over it. We're going to take the M instead. And it wasn't Robert Ricord who came up with that, but he was the one who introduced it to England.
A highlight from Whats My Line?
"There are people in this country who work hard every day, not for fame or fortune do they strive, but the fruits of their labor are worth more than their pay. Portions of the following program may contain pre -recorded material. You are listening to the best of the Dennis Prager Show. Hello my friends, it's Labor Day and I'm laboring. Dennis Prager here my and tradition on Labor Day is to ask you about your labor, your work, what do you do for a living, and I have been just fascinated by your ways of making a living. We don't realize, none of us realize, because we all live in a small world. It's impossible not to. You know X number of people, you have X number of relatives, and that's pretty much it. Now we don't live in a small world intellectually or philosophically and the like, but we do in so it comes as a fascinating surprise and it's quintessentially American the ways in which Americans make a buck. So what I do on Labor Day is I invite you to call in and tell me what you do and it could be absolutely prosaic. It doesn't mean you drill for oil in Tunisia. It doesn't have to be exotic. If you are in a profession or a line of work which many others are in, that's fine. First of all, I love to talk to people, which I would think would be a fairly common characteristic among talk show hosts, but it isn't. It isn't, interestingly. Off the air, a lot of these guys are quite introverted and are not people -people. It's not an attack at all, just a personality. But I am a people -person. I'm a people -person. And I love to talk to people. I talk to people, as you know, I've told you, in elevators, anywhere. And so I love to ask people about their work. 1 -8 Prager 776, which translates digitally into... Translates digitally into... This is the official one on LesWatt? Yes. Oh, really? He prefers... My prefers producer this to... Oh, I see. Well, they're both good. I don't know if I have a preference. Isn't there even a third? There are several. There are several. No, no, no. I understand that. I understand, but there's no reason not to use them. So dear Francesca Morris, who has volunteered her time to work on this Labor Day along with the Induplicable McConnell, Sean whose name is spelled... That was composed by yours truly, incidentally. There are areas where I just don't like to boast, but that is one I am really proud of. That is the only piece of music I have ever composed. I didn't orchestrate it, I didn't sing it, but I composed it. So what do you do for a living? It's Labor Day, and it's an appropriate question to ask, and I have a lot of fun. So do you. Are you listening? And it is, among other things you will see, an ode to America. Because unless crushed, the spirit of people, and this would be true anywhere. It's a values issue. It's not a DNA issue. There's no American DNA. And so unless crushed, which is what happens in the vast majority of the countries of the world, people just will do whatever they do. All right, so let's begin with Ambler, Pennsylvania, and Hugh. Hello, Hugh. Dennis Prager. Welcome on Labor Day. Hello, Dennis. Happy Labor Day to you, and I'm very thrilled that I'm number one on the list today. Thank you. Well, that is something. That is something. But I was just going to... I work in a grocery store, okay? A supermarket, if you will. I work for Whole Foods Markets, and I work in the store in North Wales, Pennsylvania. Right. I'll say hello when I'm in Philly. Oh, very good. I know you come here often. Yep. And I'm a baker. I work as a baker there. I go in early in the morning. What time? I usually get there around 4 30 a .m. Go on and wait. So Whole Foods, which I've been to many times, but I didn't realize... So the bakery bakes what? Well, we do actual scratch baking in the bakery. We take items. We don't just open boxes and bake the stuff. It's made from scratch. And what's the stuff you bake? Breads? Well, we do breads, but mostly we do cakes and pastries and what you would find in a neighborhood retail bakery. I thought... Maybe I have it confused with another store chain, but doesn't Whole Foods tend... Exactly. See, that's it. Yes. But the nice thing about me, I'm a fourth generation baker. Wow. Okay. I'm 59 years old, so I've been doing this since I was 10 years old with my father. And what the nice thing is about working with Whole Foods is the ingredients I get to work with. Like, we use only real butter. We don't use any of the artificial short means or anything. It's all real... Let alone God forbid margarine. They got God forbid margarine. I got two, two, two. So that's one of the nice things about it. But I know like little retail bakeries, they can't afford to use ingredients like that. But at Whole Foods, we can and we still do. And that's why people say, well... All right. Now it's my turn to ask you some questions. First, about the hours. So if you report to Whole Foods at 4 .30, what time do you get up? Oh, I get up around 3 a .m. And what time is your work day over? I usually work till about 1 o 'clock in the afternoon. Okay. All right. So hold on. Wait. So you come home and you take a nap? Take a little nap. I usually... When I'm napping, I have you on the radio by being... You know, that's very sweet. So either I help you nap or I don't help you nap. No, but I get to listen to you every day because I usually leave like around 1 o 'clock. That's nice. really No, no, it is really nice. So what time do you go to sleep? Well, I try to get to bed by at least 9. It doesn't always work that way. Right. Especially with the Republican convention, I was really struggling. Right. And I thought, why don't we get the big speeches like at 10 .30 at night on the East Coast? I was like amazed by that. Well, they have to do that. Both parties have to do that. So let me ask you this. Are you married? Yes, I'm married. I have two children. So I assume your wife doesn't go to bed at 9? No, she doesn't. So this is just the way it's worked out? It's always worked out that way. It's very good. Like in other words, when she comes to bed, she's very quiet. She doesn't come in there and wake me up or anything. But we do have our struggles with that. Yeah, look, everybody has struggled with something, but you're employed. Yes, I am employed now. And on the love meter, loving what you do, 1 to 10 hate, 1 just love 10. What is it? Oh, well, I'm working for Whole Foods. I'm an 8. It's a really good company. That's really not. What is your most proud production? The most proud thing that I make? Yes. I tell you what, I really enjoy the pound cake and the angel food cake that we make.
John Zmirak Ponders "Should Congress Make Joe Biden King?"
"Welcome back. Talking to John Smirak. John, you're talking about the article you wrote at Stream dot org. I've shared it on Twitter, and it has a funny title. Should Congress make Joe Biden king and Hunter Biden the prince of Wales? But it's a civics lesson. It talks about how the founders created a magnificent form of government. That is a check on power. And at the heart of it, you were just saying is the House of Representatives must approve and originate all funding. Now, this is something that the Republicans threw away decades ago. Newt Gingrich shut down the government and it blew up politically in his face. Ever since then, Republicans have just said, OK, well, we'll pretend that we don't like X, Y and Z. But if the Democrats insist on it and it becomes down to shutting down the government, we will surrender every time. We just want you to know that we've got the white flag hanging over our party head. Let me let me ask you, because maybe you can help me understand this. Why did that blow up when when Gingrich did it? This was early on in the 90s in the right. But it was it was in the Clinton Clinton administration in the beginning of the Clinton administration. Newt Gingrich was a heroic figure. Well, here's why. How did that blow up politically? Why did that blow up? Why did that backfire? Here's how it backfired. The Democrats got a bunch of old people with nothing else to do but call their congressman and said they're going to cut off your Social Security. And hundreds and thousands of phone calls came into Congress and the Republicans folded like a cheap tent. We have to be willing to say we will shut down the government and leave it shut. We will defund the FBI if you're going to use the FBI to send men with rifles to the homes of pro -lifers. You're going to use the FBI to persecute PTA moms who complain about pornography in the school library. If you're going to use the FBI as a KGB to protect the corrupt political dynasty of the president to cover up for his son's crack deals and foreign bribes, we would rather cut it off
A highlight from Short Stuff: History of English
"But I like the short version, and we want to thank EnglishClub .com, and in particular, TheConversation .com, and a professor of lit at the University of Bristol named Ad Putter. Go fighting Abby's. Is that what it is? You got me again. But anyway, Putter wrote a really good article that helped out with this one. But we're talking about the history of the English language briefly, because I was just kind of curious, like, who were the first people to speak English? And the first English is what you have to talk about first, which is, of course, Old English, which came about right after the Romans left Britain. This is a very long time ago. They colonized Britain, but they were like, things aren't going so great in the Roman Empire, so we're going to leave. Yeah. So, it's just interesting. The Romans spoke Latin, but the Brits spoke Celtic. And then after the Romans left, because their empire was crumbling around them, the Brits still kept speaking Celtic, but not for very long, because the Romans had basically been occupying Britain, but they had also been, in turn, protecting it. But as the Roman Empire crumbled, it left Britain totally vulnerable and open to invasion, and in very short order, that's exactly what happened. Three Germanic tribes, the Angles, the Saxons, and the Jutes, all basically came down from northern Germany, Denmark area, and said, we own this place now. You guys are going to start speaking like us. Yeah. They spoke what's called North Sea Germanic, and those Celtic speakers were kind of, they ended up where they ended up, which was north and west in what we now call Ireland and Scotland and Wales. So, the Angles, which was one of those Germanic tribes, like you've ever heard Anglo -Saxon, that was because they were the Angles and the Saxons and the Jutes. Two of the three of those tribes were the Angles and the Saxons. And once they got to Britain, their language was referred to as what we would call Old English or Anglo -Saxon. And it is the original form of English, and this was used in the early Middle Ages, but this is not anything that you would recognize as English as we know it today, except for just a few words here and there. Yeah. Like, his, he, some of these really, really old words. And remember, he, they think, is possibly as old as humanity as far as words go. That was already in use. But, yeah, it didn't bear much of a resemblance. And so, Old English, Chuck, was in use, I think, from about 450 to 1100 CE. Yeah. And, you know, the original thing that got me looking for this was if they could pinpoint, like, not necessarily the people, but who the first English speakers were. But our friend, Professor Putter here, actually does name a couple of people. And this is, you know, this is sort of as legend goes. But when these Germanic tribes came through, they asked a couple of those leaders, Hengist and Horsa, to come in and help protect the country. And showed they up. They, and of course, again, this is, this is, as the story goes, we really don't know if it's true or not, but they would have been the ones that brought in this Old English. So, technically, you could say that they were maybe the first English speakers as we know it as Old English. That's so fascinating. Like, if these guys aren't legendary, they are the first English speakers in England or Britain. So, Old English stuck around until the Normans came along. So, in 1066, William the Conqueror, the head of the Normans, he was the Duke of Normandy, which is in France today, showed up in England and said, Hengist, Horsa, you guys are a few hundred years old, it's time for you to hand over the reins to me, William the Conqueror. And it just so happened, since he was from what's today part of modern France, he spoke what you would kind of recognize as a type of French. And so, the Normans brought French to England. But rather than it becoming totally widespread, it actually became part of what Professor Putter calls a linguistic class division, where the royal court in the upper classes spoke the king's French, and then the lower classes continued to speak Old English. Yeah, and what's going to happen here, of course, and as we'll see, as England got to conquering for hundreds of years, you pick up on words as you move about the earth. And in this case, a lot of French words were added to what was now known as Middle English. Do you want to hear one that I guessed was right? Yeah. Sausage. Oh, yeah. Sausage. Sausage. Let's take a break. When we come back, we'll talk about a big change that happened to Middle English pronunciation that linguists are still trying to figure out right after this. Sausage.

"And again, if you have a lot of sci -fi movies which talk about aliens, then it's no surprise, is it, that people believe in aliens. They've been programmed to believe these things. And this programming is very probably a preparation for some deception that's coming. I don't believe in aliens. I do believe in demonic forces. As one godly man once said to me, never underestimate the mystery of iniquity. So that's all I want to say on that subject tonight. Then finally moving on to hearts and my own heart because I mentioned in one of my open air sermons that I had some chest pain. And the reason I mentioned that was that I had chest pain and it made me really think about death because if I get chest pain, I have got heart problem. And if I have chest pain, it could mean that I'm about to die. I can't make any assumption that this chest pain doesn't mean I'm not about to simply expire. And so if I had chest pain, it brought before me the reality of my own mortality. I could have died. And the thing is, what would you do if you were in that situation? If you're in a situation where you could die at any moment, or you might die and you didn't know whether you were going to die or not, what would you do? Well, I examined myself and this is what I said. I said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the saviour of the world. I believe that Jesus Christ died for sinners. I believe that Jesus Christ died for me. I believe that Jesus Christ has washed away my sins in his blood. I believe that Jesus Christ is my saviour from all sin. In fact, I made it personal. I said, Lord Jesus, I believe that you've loved me and given yourself for me. And I am trusting you, Lord Jesus, alone. And I'm not trusting anything else but the Lord Jesus Christ. I'm trusting you, Lord Jesus. I'm sure my trust isn't misplaced, but if it was, there is nothing else. There is nowhere else. There's absolutely nowhere else. So if this chest pain proves to be my demise, then Lord Jesus, I am content because I belong to you. I belong to you, Lord Jesus. And I'm ready to depart because I know that my salvation is assured by your death on the cross for my sins. I was able to examine myself in the light of something, myself in the light of something which could have meant my death. It didn't. And by God's grace, I keep cheating death and God keeps using me for things. And that's really wonderful. And I'm quite sure that my heart will keep beating as long as I need it. But to know Jesus Christ, Paul says here in 2 Corinthians and chapter 4 and verse 16, For which cause we faint not, but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. Now that I'm 60, I need to stop trying to pretend that I have the strength of a 20 -year -old because I don't have the strength of a 20 -year -old. I'm wasting away. My outward man is wasting away. Every day I'm a little weaker. But every day the Lord has mercy on me and the inward man is being renewed. We're coming back to the Lord Jesus Christ for grace and strength for the day. And we're looking to him and every day we are looking up and longing for the day and the time of his return.

"And welcome, welcome Alison. That's a good question. What's up, Doc? This is a live update on what I'm doing. I feel I felt a bit bad over the last two days because I have been in a place, staying in a place where the internet went down and therefore I wasn't able to post. But essentially for three days, I've based myself on the north coast of Wales here. And I've been able to travel and preach in different towns here on the north coast, which has been very encouraging and a real blessing. As you know, the United Kingdom is made up of four countries, England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. And we are very much concerned that longing for revival, long to see the Lord come down in each of these countries. And it's really, really wonderful to spend some time preaching in Wales. I've been in Scotland. I hope to go to Scotland again very soon. And also to be able to preach in England in Hull, mainly as you know. So I've been preaching in Wales. There have been some very good opportunities to preach. I'll come back to that in a second. Somebody asked a question about aliens a few days ago, and I just want to answer that question. I think it's important. And just very briefly, from a Christian perspective. And then also, I know that some of you have been concerned about my health. So I hope to say something about that and my heart particularly. Not that I want to harp on about me and my situation, but just to put people's minds at rest. So I'm here in Wales. It's a great thrill to be here in Wales. It's wonderful to be able to teach the Bible, to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ here in Wales. I have so far preached in six different towns. And I hope to preach once more in Wales tomorrow. And God willing, if I'm able tomorrow on my way back to Hull, I will preach in the town of Chester as well. At least that's the plan. We'll see if that's possible. This is a live image. So what you're seeing behind me is a view from the window of the place I'm staying. That's Llandudno, which is quite a nice little town. I've worked here as a doctor in the past, but I'd never come here to preach before. Yesterday, I preached in three towns. The first town I preached was Caernarfon, which has got a World Heritage Castle. It's a beautiful town. And I was preaching and I took it upon myself to mention the Welsh Mums. Now, the Welsh Mums are a group of mothers who are standing up and fighting for their children. They're not a specifically Christian group, but they recognise that the sex education their children was being given or is being given is little more than grooming. As a result of that, they took the Welsh government to court and they had a Christian lawyer and they put up a tremendous fight. But although their case is just, it's clear, it's barred or obvious, and it's clear that their children are being mistreated in this way, the judge found against them. That's very sad that that happened. Anyway, I thought I'd preach a tribute to them partly in the open air in Caernarfon yesterday. And I did and a woman came up and she was giving out their literature. And she said she was absolutely thrilled. This is in North Wales. This is a long, long way from Cardiff and the capital city of Wales. And she said she was thrilled. And it turned out that she was very much involved with this group and she was very encouraged to hear that somebody in the open air was calling on parents to rise up and defend their children, but also, very importantly, calling
Australia: 'Millions' of dead fish clogging Darling River - DW (English)
"Millions of fish have been found dead in southeastern Australia, experts are blaming the phenomena on floods and hot weather. The lower darling baccar river in New South Wales state is coated with millions of dead cod perch and carp floating lifeless on the surface, local authorities said the deaths were likely caused by hot weather, which meant the fish needed more oxygen, however, as the floods receded, oxygen levels dropped, the combination of the two weather conditions resulted in mass fish deaths, local resident John denning in the outback town of menindie, complained of a pungent odor from the dead fish. And a horrible to say all those dead fish. Enormous fish kills have also occurred on the river at Mende during severe drought conditions in late 2018 and early 2019, with locals estimating millions of deaths. I'm Karen

"wales" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Now the paper review on Bloomberg daybreak Europe. The news you need to know from today's papers. While most of the front pages here in the UK carry photos in England's victory over Wales in the final group game in their group at the World Cup, early and guarante has been looking at all of those forests and what stood out for you. Lots of puns. Loads and loads of puns and as we know, Anna watched it Stephen didn't care, and I was indifferent. But let me bring you some of those headlines. So England won three zero against their neighboring rivals with two goals from Manchester United's Marcus Rashford and one from full Foden who of course plays for man's city. Bosch says a Daily Mirror of course, a play on Marcus Rashford's name. The daily star says it's woozy Wednesday this is my favorite and estimates that thousands of football fans will be feeling hungover today following yesterday's match Tuesday night. Oh my God. School night. How dare you? And then the daily mail has this really optimistic headline right we've heard it all before three lines, three goals and three games for from the final. We're going to just not hear the end of it now, are we? We're going to have predictions from cats and octopuses on who's going to win. England's game against Senegal, which is kicking off on Sunday. Okay. Well, let's leave the leave the football there for now, although as you say, Leanne, it will return on to today's other headlines. The time says UK crypto hub ambitions are unchanged by the FTX collapse. This is really interesting. What's the latest here? Y'all know indeed Anna it's super interesting and it's in the times today and the government has repeated its goal of making the UK a global cryptocurrency hub that is even as a fallout from the collapse of FTX continues to echo around the world Andrew Griffith he's the economic secretary to the treasury and of course a city minister, said he really stood by bad ambition, though he placed the emphasis on feedback stable coins, government backed stablecoins rather than the more volatile privately created crypto assets, so he also raised a prospect that Britain is poised to relax the ring fencing of banks with retail and investment arms, which with the aim of reducing the risk and preventing banking collapses we've been talking about that all morning, haven't we? We just had Philip Ulrich on just explaining a bit more around the ring fencing. Leander Fernando times meanwhile, talking about how to think about policy in a poly crisis. That's going to say. No, it isn't. Well, you know, when I first looked at this, I had to Google it. I'm just going to confess, but the story in the FT by Martin wolf is looking at the poly crisis, which according to the historian Adam tosi, is a world of economic and non economic shocks which are entangled all the way down. So wolfer's arguing that the current interconnected problems the world faces means economists have to really think beyond the silos and analyze systematically across them. So this is just basically saying we have to look at a much broader view and he worries that the OECD is closing the unit set up in 2012 called the new approaches to economic challenges to do exactly that. He also looks at the OECD's latest economic outlook and tells about the economic situation right now and he concludes central banks must not take a peek in inflation as a sign that their job has done so basically look systematically across the board rather at things individually when it comes to the financial markets. Thank you so much for that review of today's newspapers. This is Bloomberg. Markets, headlines and breaking news 24 hours a day. At Bloomberg dot com the Bloomberg business app and good blooper quick take. This is a Bloomberg business flash. So I'm now from Bloomberg at business flash and we are 17 minutes into the European trading day in the stock 600 is up by a half a percent, the FTSE 100 up by three tenths of a percent the cat care on top 6 cents and the ZX up 7 tenths of a percent. So the focus once again, perhaps on global growth, although we haven't had a great deal of new stimuli here. We continue to think about China and how quickly or slowly it will recover from COVID and work through the COVID lockdowns to the other side of all of that. That's been the conversation through the start of this week, of course. We have some of the building blocks of the inflation picture here in Europe and we look ahead to Jerome Powell speaking later. That's where we are on the bigger picture. Where does that leave us will stocks in Europe then making modest gains U.S. futures look to make modest gains as well naturally are off earlier lows, so E mini is up by a quarter of 1% NASDAQ futures up by three tenths of 1% oil prices responding to something similar perhaps and are on the rise up by a percent on Brent at 83 83, so quite a lot of volatility on these oil markets a move up by 1% this morning, but that after some retreat yesterday, in terms of treasuries as we make our way towards that to comment from Jerome Powell later on today, 3.72% is the yield on the U.S. ten year to what extent are you thinking about higher interest rates in the short term but recession longer term and is that influencing your treasury market view? The dollar is set down today in keeping with this slightly risk on vibe then down by two tens of 1% on the dollar index the
A highlight from Episode 52 Dyslexia and Workplace Law
"Hello, everyone, and welcome to the Dear Dyslexic podcast series. I'm your host, Shaye Wiesel. Before we get started, I'd like to acknowledge the traditional owners of the lands on which I live and work, the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, and to pay my respects to this podcast is proudly sponsored by a DDF community member. If you love our podcasts, then why not sponsor one today? Find out how at deidyslexic .com. Today, I'm thrilled to be speaking with Ben Fogarty. Ben is a barrister at the Deaman Chambers, with expertise across a number of areas of law, including discrimination law, specializing in disability discrimination. Ben was part of our 2021 disability conference, and his presentation was so well received, I wanted to have a follow up conversation with him about his work and disability law. Ben has worked for a number of organizations, including the Intellectual Disability Rights Service, Darwin Community Legal Service, and the New South Wales Disability Discrimination Legal Centre. We hope you enjoy this podcast today. Thank you for coming on the show, Ben. Thanks for having me, it's a pleasure to talk some more and share my knowledge about disability discrimination law, but other laws that may assist people with dyslexia. Can you give us a little bit of background on where you've worked and how you've helped previously? Sure. So just recently I clocked over or clicked over 10 years as being a barrister in New South Wales. Prior to that, for 12 years, I was a lawyer, I think. I've been sort of doing legal stuff for 22 odd years. The latter parts of that, probably eight or nine years, I worked in community legal centres, which I absolutely loved. The first one was Redfern Legal Centre in Sydney. The next one was New South Wales Disability Discrimination Legal Centre. Then I went to Darwin for a bit, to Darwin Community Legal Service. Back to Sydney, to Intellectual Disability Rights Service, now called Ability Rights Service, and also in Sydney, obviously supporting and giving legal advice to people with cognitive disability. Then I just did a Homeless Persons Legal Service, that was my last solicitor job, and in between that I did some work in one of the big law firms, and I'll probably come and talk a bit more about the big law firms in Sydney in their pro bono section I filled in for a partner there who was having maternity leave. I taught criminal law along the way as well at one of the unis in Sydney, UNSW, so I've kept myself on my toes that way. I've done disability discrimination law probably since 2004 when I was a principal solicitor at Disability Scrimm Legal Centre, and then I've continued to do it all along the way. I've got a matter right now that, fingers crossed, is just about to settle for a young person with physical disabilities that's gone to the Federal Court, where again I might talk about that later, about where things can end up going to. So how did you get, because working in law you can, there's so many different areas that you could be working in, what attracted you to working in this space? Like my whole career probably, I meandered around. So I left uni and got a summer clerkship, which means you're going to these big law firms and they schmooze you and it's never, well I knew it was never going to last forever because I wanted to do sort of soulful work with the greatest of respect to those places. So then I kind of left that realm after four or five years and I had said to myself that I would always volunteer and just never did that and felt a bit bad about never having done it. So I had my teaching gig at uni part -time and I was doing some tutoring as well and so I went to Redfern Legal Centre, in fact I went to a few and said I'd like to volunteer, I am a lawyer but I've worked at the other end of town, can I do something? And they took me on board and they re -engineered my brain to be able to speak to people as opposed to corporations. And then the job came up across the road, it was literally across the road, they were looking for a principal solicitor at the Disability Discrimination Legal Centre and I don't know, I just loved it. I loved and still do love helping individuals and just the feeling that you're achieving a result for an individual that particularly where if you're doing it pro bono or at a reduced rate, they wouldn't, or through Legal Aid, those persons wouldn't have access to a lawyer at all. So I just, I don't know, I've got a real buzz out of that, I always have. It's a stark difference to the corporations that I used to work for. Again, that's something some lawyers like to do but I just felt like I was a bum on a seat and if I wasn't there, someone else would be there. Whereas Redfern Legal Centre, I can still remember the matters, this was 2003 or 2004, you know, I can, they still sit in my brain about people that I helped and how grateful they were. I was really moved by the genuine gratitude that humans would give me or people would give me that I hadn't found in my career so far. So continued it's and, you know, really, I mean, I do work, I do work these days, employment work for respondents, but I like to think too that I bring a sort of fairness to that and understand both sides and most of those matters, many matters resolve and mediate, they don't run, so yeah. Wow, thank you, because I know there'll be a lot of people out there that not just that you've helped but that you will continue to help and it's such an important area. We get a number of calls through 1800 our helpline, which is a peer support helpline really, people coming to us that feel they may have been discriminated against. What we see come up frequently is people actually graduating and then not being able to pass the registration and so trying to help them navigate to a certain point where then they need to decide do they get legal support or who do they go to to get that help. So we're not a legal service at all, that's not my background. So when people or people that have dyslexia, because I think one of the key challenges for workplaces is they don't have a really good understanding of or awareness of dyslexia and that it is a disability under the Disability Act and that people can be discriminated against if they don't access the reasonable adjustments or the supports that they require based on their disability. So I think that's one of the challenges in the workplace but how do people go about seeking that support if they're struggling in the workplace or they feel that they've been discriminated against and I mean that's a huge question and we don't have a lot of time but maybe if you could give some thoughts around some starting blocks for people that may be feeling this is happening to them. Yeah okay, a few things to think about, hoping not to teach people to suck eggs but always try and resolve it with the employer. Obviously if it's an employment context try and do it informally. Anti -discrimination New South Wales or ADNSW in the Australian Human Rights Commission, the two bodies that you take a complaint to in New South Wales at least will always ask you have you tried to resolve it informally. Most people have, that's what we try and do, don't we try and sort it out and not have to make it go any further. Both of those courts of call and you can bring a disability discrimination act for the disability of dyslexia in employment to either of those places. There's two separate acts that provide that right and both of those avenues, both the ADNSW and Australian Human Rights Commission try to resolve matters without lawyers by way of conciliation. If one side wants to bring a lawyer and the other side that is the complainant, the person doesn't have one, they'll make sure that it's a sort of fair playing field when it's a conciliation. So the starting point, I know people will say I'm nervous but those two organisations support people to bring matters to conciliation. They'll assist people when they'll file a complaint, they'll say to them is there anything else you want to add to it. They can't advise them but they'll make sure that they have everything they need to go into a conciliation. Now most conciliations resolve matters, some don't and when they don't that's when you need to think about whether you go to court and definitely at that point you want to talk to a lawyer. Some people might say along the way I don't feel that I want some support going in there, that's fair enough. Advocacy groups I know depends on disability, depends on where you are and sometimes they're few and far between but an advocate may assist a person just to be there to support them through the conciliation process and I don't see why the Commission or the Anti -Discrimination Board wouldn't allow that as long as that person in the conciliation just sort of abided by the rules and just supported the person. If you're a union member they might support you although I've heard mixed reviews about unions and they don't often have the expertise and their lawyer might have to do employment law and all different sorts of law and may be reluctant to run into an area that they're not rely on unfortunately. There are a couple of legal centres, Australian Centre for Disability Law in Sydney, again very limited resources. They do disagreement work and they would be a place to go to. Is that so nationally anyone could access their service? Yeah so that used to be New South Wales Disability Discrimination Legal Centre where I worked but then they got some different funding and they're now national and they're not just discrimination but I saw their annual report because I'm a member of theirs a couple of days ago and still 80 per cent of their work is the scrim. There are also some other legal centres and I've been out of the loop a bit for a while but there are some in other states so I know Victoria's got a couple of disability rights places, Villamanta, some others that specialise in disability. I want to say AED Legal down in Victoria do a lot of employment law for people with disabilities so there are other places if google you NACLAC, I think it is, N -A -C -L -C, there's community legal centres, Victoria, New South Wales, Australia you'll find and just work your way through that. You'll find the legal centres but again most of them have very limited resources and such a big market of people that need their help. Some of the big legal firms, so the place I worked at, a number of them will do discrimination work but I suppose it's finding out who they are, how to contact them and they have their parameters around who they support but they do discrimination work. Probably you need Australian Centre for Disability Law or someone like me just to make that contact first and say I'll speak to them but equally if you go onto their websites, you know the bigger ones that run in most of the cities across Australia, you can look up, if you just google pro bono and look up law firms, you'll start seeing some and there's nothing to stop you to pick out the phone and give me a ring. In fact I recall doing, I referred a client, a fellow with dyslexia many years ago from the centre across to one of the law firms to help in a matter now that I think about it some time ago. So yeah there are those areas of support. Legal Aid New South Wales, I can't speak for Victoria and Queensland but they're pretty similar I think, they have a human rights section that will take on matters in limited budget. They'll take on matters where there's you know real systemic change that could happen from it. So again you know there might be someone with dyslexia and employment or even with respect to a service where you know you can see wow if this is happening in this office here and it's a national office or in this shop here and it's a chain store across Australia and the person can't get any informal resolution it might be one that Legal Aid says this is a good one, this is one that we want to take on. So there are a range of different places if a person has a claim that looks systemic, there are pro bono places, there's Legal Aid to talk to. Thank you for listening to this podcast. The DHUB is our digital learning space where you can access our first Australian e -learning courses for those working and supporting dyslexic employees, as well as webisodes, online courses, communities of practice and much much more. So head to the DHUB today and start your learning journey dhub .ddyslexic .com. Places like yourself and different advocacy groups that know more can almost be the middle person between someone like me or those law firms and the person just goes I've no idea how I find a lawyer and do I have to pay and how much would it cost because you know these matters aren't about million dollar matters so there aren't private lawyers who are going to take these matters on they're usually about I'll say the principle of the matter and that's as important as anything in my view. So there's very few privates that you could one that I would trust know the law and two that you'd send the person to and they're going to spend thousands of dollars on a matter that really you know the service or employer shouldn't have done in the first place. So yeah they're limited but if you can get through to some of the people like myself or other the firms or legal aid or what have you they'll be able to steer people in the right direction. And so throughout through your working career have you had or seen many cases where someone with dyslexia has taken an employer or an organisation to court? I've seen I remember one in particular a big private school in Sydney where I acted for the parents and and forgive me I know there's dyspraxia there's dyslexia there's a range of different different disabilities that I don't know enough about but I think this was more of a this involved in you might say this is this is an aspect of dyslexia is the processing between this child's looking on the board and writing down and they needed supports around that their brains really as you again not suggesting people dyslexia aren't really bright of course this kid was super bright and he was in an excelling class and he's in this school is renowned for getting brilliant brilliant marks so he could do a lot of amazing things but there were certain things he couldn't do with respect to stuff written on the board and the school just refused to do it I think they thought we don't want something like this going through the HSC la la la la it was also a political school and there was a lot of pressure being put on by some powerful old boys and I'm trying to remember what the result was but we took it on for a while and and I think in the end sadly we and this often happens in education matters is that the the blood is so bad and there's so much mistrust distrust between parent and school and principal that the only sad sadly the only outcome that's going to work for for the sanity of the child and the parents is to go to a different school I think that's what happened but it gave them a red hot crack so that was an education matter I think that was when I was at the Disability Discrimination Legal Centre and not long after another one was and this I'm pretty sure this is the fellow who I referred off to another to the firm but I helped him for a while this involved a an MP's office asking and demanding that this person only contact that office by writing I hope I don't give this away for someone who might be listening to this but I'm de -identifying as best I can but first a shocker the MP obviously didn't like this one of his constituents because this constituent exercised a democratic right to be telling his MP certain things and he'd come down or he'd ring and this MP turned around knowing knowing that my client had dyslexia and said no no next I'm not refusing you access to my office what I'm telling you is you've got to put it in writing before you get you get here and I just couldn't believe it I should have believed it I we then went and had a meeting with this MP and the client came with me I've got to say this is pretty wet behind the ears in those days I'm a lot more robust now but I've never felt more intimidated and bullied by this MP in this meeting he gave us about five minutes before this was we had to go down to his just office yeah it was amazing and he said I've got to go now the bells were going ran off down to my parliament so those are the two that stick in my mind some time ago not not what great outcomes and that one I think in the end he backed off because it was a lot it was a lay down there was no reason why you know if we'd run that if we'd run that through to I think we were I think we were he was about to file in the anti -discrimination board as it then was so under the state act but either way there was just no there was no defense that that MP could have could have run to defend that it was just it's just being excuse my French and a -hole um and didn't want this guy to be to be exercising his right I mean you're an MP mate um suck it up this guy was a lobbyist and someone who was in your constituency you needed to listen to him I haven't had a lot of um others than that I remember one and I can't remember whether it was a matter we took on or whether it was one that I read it so long ago but in terms of a and it gets down to this defense of inherent requirements which which some of the people that come to you might hear about which is where you can't adjust where you're asking for a reasonable adjustment that so affects or changes the role i .e it removes parts of the role of inherent requirements that the laws as well the employer is entitled not to make that reasonable adjustment and they're not actually breaking the law so there was a case about a fellow who needed to read it was a warehouse case from memory and it might have been a matter that came to us and he he couldn't there were aspects of the reading of these of signs in this warehouse that he had trouble with I can't so long ago now I can't remember I think we did resolve it and there might have been a really clever way with color coding or numbering that he was fine with that they could do it and so I think we might have been able to get a resolution but yeah I haven't had one for a long time not at the I'm bar so not sure whether people were just you know who knows you probably know better than me as to why people they just cop it or you know the classic I don't know if I talked about it now I can't remember what I said I don't think I did in my talk for your conference but you know people that come to you would talk about the age -old problem with an invisible disability when do I disclose that I have it do I do it at the interview how do I do it when do I do it why do I do it and why is it relevant and it's all well and good for me to pontificate and say well they can't do this and this but are you ever going to be able to prove why you didn't get the job was because of your dyslexia because you disclosed it and it's interesting you raised that because through the research I'm doing we've been interviewing people with dyslexia and that's been one of the initial barriers is where people have asked for reasonable adjustments in an interview and they said I'll just give it your best shot you'll be right or and they haven't but it feels like it's because of their disability and if they've had those reasonable adjustments and they probably would well they would have been able to do a better job at the application doesn't mean they might have got the job but at least they're able to work to the best of their ability and I think we could probably have a whole another podcast on reasonable adjustments and that conversation around when does it become not reasonable they won't take us down that rabbit Warren today I mean the most inane but accurate response to that is that each each set of circumstances turns on its own facts and that's just important for people to realize that just because Jack down the road got a job and their employer adjusted it doesn't necessarily mean that my employer is discriminating against me if they're not giving me that adjustment it's quite subtle and you know because your employer might have a greater income my role might be slightly different to Jack's it's yeah it's it's really until you know all of the relevant circumstances of the situation it's hard to kind of say to someone oh yeah you should run your case because they don't have a leg to stand on with inherent requirements or those adjustments they suggested you know do fall short and the ones you argue are reasonable and they should have made them yeah one to answer off the cuff it's a difficult area isn't it but and I wonder whether um that's why people don't push forward and get the support or take it further they just quit that job yeah it's too hard and I think in most cases it's probably people leave the job I think that's right they leave the job and they don't have the energy to have a fight or knowledge that there's anything much they can do about it and it may have become normalized for them they may that may have been what's happened to them for most of their lives and careers so it's quite sad and again if you're running a discrim case against an employer it's probably almost too late the human you know the human interaction and the ability to continue to work with them you're probably if you haven't been able to informally resolve it with them then then you're probably not going to keep the job or you're not going to want to sadly you know always in disability the disability rights space changing attitudes and and making people empathetic and you know that's what it is at the end of the day disability discrimination is about walking my shoes or push yourself in my chair for a day and I think pretty quickly you'd resolve the complaint it's really about understanding and that you can't change you can't change ignorance overnight you can't change stereotypes we see it everywhere and all sorts of discrimination but particularly disability and the stats you know there's I've been reading stats for years in employment work and policy work we used to do in the centres about people with disability statistically are more loyal employees than people without disability they get a job and they stick to it and their heart you know that's what the stats show and they've shown that for years I know you know part of what I've told you on the disability royal commission and I know recently they had an employment one might be worth people having a look at that where Graham Innes former Australian Human Rights Commissioner spoke and I think they're going to do another one next year on the topic of employment it was only a couple of weeks ago it was before the public hearing I was involved in and Graham talked about he gave evidence and talked about stats those sorts of stats again more more up -to -date ones but that that might be interesting for people who are interested and really it's something if people aren't aware people with dyslexia aren't aware it's you know it's about them as well it's about violence neglect exploitation etc but it covers it's wide ranging it's coming whole there whole areas the disability royal commission website's pretty accessible and you can get I think you can access all of the transcripts you know audios all that sort of stuff it's totally accessible so if people are interested in looking at that and it's it'd be a public hearing on employment in December or November maybe late November this year. So or 20 so it just happened yeah just happened okay I heard in the media I was too busy preparing for my own and I think it was only a very short one a day or two and so I think there might be a follow -up one next year on again on the topic of employment for people with disability. That'd be good to watch that space and to learn more about in your with your experience are there some key things that employers could be doing I mean you just touched on empathy and walk in you think employers could be doing to better support their employees with disabilities whether it's dyslexia or just in general. It's hard to say I mean you would have thought I mean I with with COVID and the effects on you know the employment market and the and the really volatile employment market we have and I know it affects different areas you know obviously not suggesting people all become fruit pickers because we can't get you know Polynesian people and kiwis to come over and and pick all the fruit but you know I would have thought at the moment in a lot of industries and I see it even if I go past cafes or restaurants and I know they're they're struggling with it we're going to close down again but I would have thought now is a time where employers are really looking for employees and ought to be a bit more broad -minded about who they take on and people are keen and and willing to work and they have to make a few adjustments that they would want to take them on and if they find them loyal and willing to do all sorts of shifts to and being flexible with if things change that really there's a bit of a shift in favour of employees but I don't know about that.

Wales p resumes out will discover out fat in the pedantic and the new dates route from iran is coming up. The flexibility students have afforded over the last eighteen months. They're asking for the flexibility. To some extent remain and if we as a sector decide to keep that flexibility then place coming to a university campus leaving on campus may not be as important as we have seen over the last decade. Welcome to the monkey show. We came to this week's higher education vs policy and analysis. I'm you'll high skip dickinson and head to help us understand. What's going on this week. Contrite sector of terrific guests guilford osama connie's the pbc education at the university of surrey. Asami highlight of the week please. He has been fabulous testifying. The students who are now really worrying ever the exam but you know we're helping them out with their exams which are coming up assessments of the middle of the week excellent stuff. I mean bombers debbie holy professor of learning innovation at born at the university w highlight the weeklies. Well we've had graduation this week and this morning as i'm here we're running an online exam for four hundred fifty students so there we go. That's a good week. Fantastic stuff finding lost to share somewhere. No one's really show. Where david kernahan he's won ki's associate editor at your highlight of the way. Please leave in the world of the work for the moment Gigs are back. My band played at the weekend. It was a halloween gig. We all dressed up. We played halloween songs. That was fabulous. Lovely We won't be able to clip of that lighter so yes we start this week with a potential white paper other than stuff on our anti there was scant mention of hp and the spending review and budget last week leaves a bunch of questions hanging and we hear that may well mean the white paper on eight coming before christmas to include things on fees and funding all response. Maybe p q i stuff on spelling start chiefs. Who knows debbie was thinking about what we could say about this. I actually went back to the original paper which was presented in parliament. Way back in may two thousand nine hundred nineteen and it just struck me that this was review of both education funding and the funding side seems to have kind of taken in conversation sins. I think the overview was setting out key principles saying it's a story of both and neglect and this depends on students whether that the fifty percent who participate in h. e. or the rest and there's a huge disparity and it just struck me and all the fuss and clatter and policy briefings. We've kind of lost sight of the students. So two principles stood out for me principle. Seven that post eighteen education cannot be left entirely to market for this and that are post education post. Eighteen education needs to be forward looking is going to be a response. I'm wondering how you can create a compelling narrative because if you look at the other policy areas it's quite complex because we've got lifelong learning has kind of you know very high on the agenda and expecting all of us to have portfolio careers in the future and then doing one set of skills eighteen and being sorted so that seems little dated so it sounded like lifelong learning seem to be perhaps a little higher up the political arena and we've already had announcements on efi funding so yeah. I'm not sure with all the other things that are going on. And the announcements of cash nipping kind of re announced about five times with chile. The space there for a compelling narrative to respond that puts the students at the heart interesting. I mean look daycare. We say this a lot. Olga was of commissioned and launched in a very very different political climate. Even though it was actually not long ago in. I mean it was quite a long time ago but it just you know. Politics is completely change. Doesn't it the thing that people forget about. Olga is the amount of it that has been responded to and the amount that as being a delivered. The leading up eventually funding wasn't inaugur is happening. The lifelong learning entitlement all similar arrangements were in order and are happening. changes to apprenticeships making them easier for employers to run worried. All on the happening. So alo- is a very different time in politics. I mean the this was supposed to be a quick review after the twenty seventeen election. When people got scared about jeremy corbyn remember that that was a thing but we don't really have anything comparable going on. At the moment. We do have the big pieces of policy machinery. The lifelong learning entitlement. Keep screaming to anyone. That will listen is massive. Change everything in twenty twenty five. We only really have two years before that. So won't get on the site this week. If you've already got two years before a big change that you know is happening already and you know that people generally light because the leave a fundamentally is a good idea Speaking administered and sat at particularly ham-fisted way. But it is a good idea. It's racing you do. Why on earth would you ruin that and Spoiled a pitch for your own election stuff beforehand to make a change and do some fee cats sauce fiddling around the edges.
"wales" Discussed on Ghostly
"It's one of those kinds of things. I don't know it's me i. I actually had a hard time seeing it at first. Because i didn't i did too. I didn't look at it when it was like the circled part greg because i wanted like hey i want to see you know what it you know if i can see where this is and it actually took me a minute to find it And so i see what you're saying where there's like kinda son that's coming down But man that part where the figure is. I mean that is really it is really distinct. I have a hard time seeing like the people behind it. I see no people. I think you know. She said they zoomed in and kind kinda looked at it that way so i. It's it's a little harder to see that part But no it that man that really looks like a like a figure there. One time i looked up to the sky. And i swear i saw homer simpson in the clouds. But that's just my mind trying to make a connection to that because homer simpson was like my tv dad kind of thing so interesting. They think this is explaining. But i'm just saying it's one of those things that it's like your mind just kind of tries to make sense of what it seeing and not that it seeing anything unusual. It's just trying to put some some life to something that's really not there Interesting yeah well. I think it looks. I am okay so i'm gonna give this another six. Okay that's pretty high. I mean to me. I it does look like a figure but it's not an eight or a nine or anything like that to me because i get. I don't see the other people behind them and i am. I'm open to you. Know little flexible on a photo takes a snapshot of one moment in time and a lot can happen during that one moment in time to make these images look like that. Okay cheese or back Going whitney houston on me there so to me no. This does not say anything this is. This is zero again. Wow all right. so far. I've given higher than zero on this one. I just i just don't see these things there. I now all right. Well we've got. I can go look at it out. Our website go sleep. I'd guess calm and quiet and our episode here Okay last piece of evidence today. is a disembodied voice captured on video by a pair of paranormal investigators. Carl has all and sam singleton of the dark arts paranormal group while filming themselves exploring the castle. The camera captured the voice of a little girl whispering. Tell they did not hear this at the moment when they were filming it. It wasn't until they were watching the footage back that they heard it see. That's the thing it's like. That's another time when you're when you're searching for something so when i heard it which took me five or six times playing this video. Rebecca had to tell me the time that it was at. And i kept listening at that time i did not hear it at first and then i heard new tala because you had some new tally. No but i was really hungry. At that time. I could have won for some new tala. That would have been but no i. I mean it could have been anything that caused this. It could have been the The woman's shoes on the floor or something like that or they crunched some some some rock or something like that when they cause the floors are made up of like a rock ish kind of thing instead at that level girl with but over a video camera. It sounded off mike. It didn't sound like it didn't sound like it was any kind of ghost or anything like that. It sounded more like maybe somebody said something off camera. Maybe maybe they just happened to walk in a certain way when you walk on. A wooden floor makes creeks when you walk on stone. Sometimes they crumble a little. This was super scare as a scary spooky to me i absolutely heard it immediately. And it sounded otherworldly. It did not anything like joan. Tala noah sounded like totally different and. It did sound like a whisper. It was clear to me that it was not the people that were. Just you know the two people that were there Yeah it was super creepy. I mean here's the thing. I have nothing against any kind of new tala or anything like that. I i think it's it's really good. I don't like new tele sandwiches. it's like a little too much of it. I would prefer like unlike a little cracker thing. You know the cracker sticker something like that. Those are really good with new tala and nothing against new tala. So but i definitely think that this could be something else especially since they didn't even notice it at the time well to me. That's what i'm saying is that it was other worldly was something that was only captured on the other-worldly like make believe world he was total. Maple world okay. So we'll What's your rating zero to ask zero. This one's an eight for me to back come outer creepy super paranormal. We're gonna have the the link to the youtube video. And by the way there was no welsh or english accent in that new televoice. That's true that's true. But i have no idea i'd i'd it's hard to tell with the whisper and who knows who knows what spirit this is so no okay. So what is your overall rating than for conway castle. Rebecca semi while waiting for conway castle is gonna be a six also not as haunted as what people have said Yeah i will say i mean. It's an looks like an awesome place to visit their. You know again. There's a lot of reports of things. But i just i couldn't find a ton of specific stories other than this photo and this voice in those were convincing enough for me to go towards the haunted side Yeah but i almost feel like it. You know it's it's just a creepy castle so some of that might just be people feeling creepy while they're there. Okay i'll for you. So i'm gonna go zero on it you know. That's an average of my clear average ratings here. I'm sorry. I just don't think that there's enough evidence there to prove anything even to get me to a one or a two. I'm now so that brings us to the closing arguments. This is our last chance to convince you to vote our way. We are each given one minute of uninterrupted time. Because rebecca likes to cheat so we are going to do it on our own cell phones. Were going time each other to keep each other honest because rebecca lies. I wanna so rebecca. Are you ready. I am ready. Okay.

Forty two she was an only child and was educated at home by her parents and she left home. She moved to worthing in west sussex there. She spent ten years teaching at a girls secondary school during that time charlotte began to develop her own original teaching methods at the time and even today many schools used classical education system. This system offers student. Three main categories of study grammar dialectic and rhetoric it places emphasis on writing and systemic grades and often leaves the fine arts outside of the main curriculum. Charlotte disagreed with the system. She believed didn't offer the full scope of education to children and was especially interested in making the liberal arts more accessible as a result she started to pen her own books. She began with the popular series on geography eighteen eighty seven. She co founded the parents educational union or p helped provide resources for parents.

She published a series of books that explained her educational philosophies at the beginning of each. She summarized her fundamental ideas. I she wrote. Education is an atmosphere. A discipline wife. Secondly education is the science of relations. Charlotte believed children were innately born as people and thinkers whose own ideas should be respected regardless of their age. She thought children were drawn to honest desires and that the role of adults was to help rid them of bad habits. In order to reach their potential charlotte's curriculum revolved around providing children with what she called living books or books written by people with great passion for the subject. they're writing

"Restrictions in New South Wales. Yeah, That's right, Paul. And I want you to stay with me here. Expected date October 18th. I think that's correct. You know, Paul is covering the story from Bloomberg Radio and TV. How do we expect us to work? October 18 is the day as you say that relaxations will start to get relaxed in New South Wales, and this is the most populated state in Australia. And accounts for about a third of the country's GDP. So it's significant. Some of the media here is calling it Freedom Day might be a bit of a stretch. This is how it works. Once we hit the 70% fully vaccinated milestone, people will be allowed to return to pubs and restaurants and cafes, hairdressers and gyms, But they won't be fully reopening. There'll still be some Restrictions in place capacity limits and that sort of thing and most critically, if your unvaccinated these opportunities will not be available to you, I was going to say the Freedom Day applies to basically getting vaccination to 80%. Is that right? Yeah, that's right. But even once restrictions hit 80% the unvaccinated but will struggle to participate in the reopening. But there's been some suggestion that they would need to pay for their own tests. These would need to take place daily. You can see the state government really heavily pressuring this line that people must get vaccinated. And the unvaccinated are going to have a difficult time functioning in the state. Yeah, Okay. Thank you. Paul, Now a couple of media reports coming out of Japan Nikkei First Japan to shorten the quarantine for vaccinated travelers and then another one today a niche K R. N H k. I should say that the Japanese government has told the ruling coalition That it is planning to extend the state of emergency in Tokyo, Osaka and 17 other prefectures until September. 30th New York City is now saying that 65% of eligible students have received at least one dose of vaccine.

"Yeah. It's interesting how in a way it's I mean I kind of feel like it's it's pulling Josey Wales all over the place because he watched to be this loaner who just goes dead. And all he does is kill the people that have hurt him, but these other people just keep getting attached to him and can see why our pulse him back and forth between the two the next morning, he sees loan. Nobody sleeping and he's got this dog. The red bone mangy dog that showed up on underwear and he wakes up. He's like a cheap. I suppose that mangy Redbone. Hound has no place to go either he might as well ride with us. He'll everybody else has, right? Like I said before this movie is chock-full of them. Yeah. It's it's an amazing film and I'm sorry we're alone for the place tonight but it's kind of hard not to be with this film. No, listen, I'm all over the place too. Like I said, it's very important to the to that the both of us and it's so great and it's so dense and it's so so good. That's what's that, that's part of the problem. So I wanted to ask you about something towards the end of the film. If you think we're at that point the couple of little themes that want to talk about about Josey Wales is Faith and always called a bloodthirsty killer and and at the beginning he's bitter and traumatized Anchorman. He can't resist doing the right thing and helping people in need which goes to like he's sort of like an angel and a devil but he is a positive influence and a positive energy because the thing I find I found really interesting watching at this time that loan Wadi, he reconnects with his Indian spirituality and remembers. They're forgotten ways of his Youth and his people because of Josey Wales after he meets him and they had that conversation and Josey. Wales who doesn't trust anyone loan Lottery pulls a gun on him. He talks in for a little bit and he's so comfortable..

"In the later scene. We see Bloody Bill right up to him. It's still an ex in the ground. So I just had it in my head watching it for this need cast. I was researching like you know this really just really just seems important to me. I mean it could very well have just been like I said that, you know, Clint Eastwood's like oh, it's just an emotional Outlet. It does it, but it seemed important to me. So I looked it up and a tilted cross is known as a Saint Andrew's cross which is a Herald symbol. So the X on the Confederate flag the X on the British union job. In countless of the flags are a Saint Andrew's cross. I was like, okay so there's the Confederate flag connection but that's like, I feel like there's something more and so as I read this whole thing cuz you know they use a subtext in the film like Josey Wales, he's always associated with verbiage or imagery of Hell, or being more than a man, but he's not Supernatural. But in any case, I read that some consideration, I'm across to be a symbol that represents the human race or Humanity as being positioned, right in the middle between Heaven and Hell. And when when I read that something went off in my head I'm like heaven and not, hell, and referencing it is a theme throughout this entire film, their constant references to hell, or being in Hell or Josie represented, as being in Hell or from Hell in the dialogue. The Centers is how long this song to Kingdom? Come with Biblical imagery? He'll have to run for now and he'll is where his headed Fletcher says. He'll be waiting for us there Centre, so he's saying he's in hell, right? And then Jake Tells Josie he's feeling better after they shoot the first set of Bounty Hunters. Glen and like, oh, by the way, I want to give a shout out to lend lesser who plays a VIN this film, but he's Uncle Louie and Seinfeld.

"Why was he controversial? And the next sentence is such an understatement of of why, here's a pro segregate. Segregation assist leader in the KKK, he wrote this book under the name. Forrest Carter, who he claimed was a Cherokee, right? All of this came out after the movie was made from what I understand wage. Yeah. And they were like Warner Brothers and Clint Eastwood and the producers and everyone was like holy shit. We got a distance ourselves from this guy majorly just however that wage. Yeah. Not only was he a member of the KKK? I think I read somewhere that he was in a especially radical member of the segment. I don't know how more radical you can be hooked up to the word I was looking for but also was the speechwriter for George Wallace. Yep. And he's the one that wrote the famous line of his speech segregation now segregation tomorrow, segregation forever. Yeah, not a good guy anti-semite as well. So what's very insane is that this person wrote them all Source novel, which inspired this really beautiful magnificent film. The messages in the film are antithetical to everything that that man, apparently stood for in real life. It's just it's dead. Absolutely bizarre. And I read a portion chapter eleven of the Clint Eastwood a biography by Richard schickel that I bought. And on the day, the my page, twenty-five years ago, great book, by the way, you read it. Yeah, I read it. I couldn't put it down, fantastic, it's so chock-full of information. I reread chapter eleven labor of love which was recounting of the time of him filming and doing Outlaw, Josey, Wales. And I came across who's such a psychopath. The movie was it was a blind submission. He put in this book, the web page fails, Robert daily, the producer picked it up one day cuz he had nothing to read for dinner. Read it to this book has so much soul to it. How you should look at it, they buy it, they pay him. $25,000 up from $10,000 for when production starts and promise more later, and the thing that struck me is, so, he calls Robert daily up and says, hey, I'm going to be you guys neighborhood. I was wondering if you know, if I mean, wage, And rubber daily goes on, to talk about the book that in the neighborhood meant, he was going to Texas, and they're in California. Like so this guy's just out of his mind. It's it's yeah. Okay, sure. He loves going to he doesn't show up on the plane when they send their guy to meet him cuz he's got drunk, get thrown in jail, he comes the next day, the guy picks him up, he's pissed drunk, he takes, they go to a bar, he goes to call Robert day long..

"You kind of have a, maybe have a sense of what happened to him and he's just this almost Supernatural Force, it's very different kind of film than this, which is realistic. But as you said this starts off and here is, he's he's a farmer and he's, he has a family and, you know, where he comes from and he's, and he's, he's being a, he's just being a dad, just being a normal guy is not the typical. Like, man with no name, spaghetti, western badass, the beginning of this movie. He's just a regular dude. I'd want to get to rail, but when you brought up his son, I thought there was. I agree wage. That's great. But one of the things I realized watching the film this time around that's his real son Kyle. Eastwood. Oh really well. Yeah. That's his real son and no idea. It's six years old. The thing that's weird is he does not give his own son Credit in the film, he's uncredited. Well as much as I love Clint Eastwood and as a filmmaker and as an actor I think he's a great guy off but when I dive into his personal life a little bit, I've always liked. Yeah, I don't know about this. He's fathered a lot of children with a lot of different women. He's Clint Eastwood I mean, it's a good-looking guy, I don't know, it's just funny. I read I read an interview with him where someone asked him about wage that and he said, I don't know what to tell you. I just like kids and I'm like, no, you just don't like wearing rubbers. Like, well, the good part in this is that he can afford them. Yeah, wage. True. So it'd be a little more irresponsible if he was just a regular dude, but he's fucking Clint Eastwood so, you know, fair enough. But I do wrong and let's get back to what you were saying that the beginning of the film. And with his son, I just liked the fact that it didn't take a lot of talk..

"Our children were young to pembrokeshire and cardigan and the beaches are amazing. Just like beaches in kumo no-one on them absolutely it's beautiful around that and say that's the thing is so quiet and that's actually something that way. We became to preserve our lives. The last thing we want to do is to encourage over tourism in any area so responsible troubles really important to say that as you say at the moment you can enjoy those empty beaches to yourselves. But we honestly believe that if we all time to plan things properly and we worked together with local communities we can preserve that whilst also establishing oils on that tourism map will people in england but also in other countries of a belief that if you kinda and you want to get to see side you have to go to dublin cuomo and that's not true tool as it is really amazing.

Lives to the amazing we did. Then go when it didn't tell raining and it was about twelve. Degrees look is doing at some point but yes she likes stunning beaches around here and that the temperature is slightly more favorable sometimes in the sarah but but often actually that was some really beautiful spots all around the coast where you get these real some traps as i think sometimes wiles is unfairly tarnished with this weather bush that know western windy hair. But that's because we have so many mountains inserts past especially about north winds and if you're in the shadow excited manson's lobos kills the naturally. Yes there is more rain. For many years ago. We used to come very On the west coast of wales and we'd have to drive through western.

Every time we went we had amazing weather and it was just perfect for watching the sunset behind the say who a few sheep and wales to that there are indeed. I believe the the statistic is she outnumber people three too long before to one now. Obviously there's a lot as we went to kois couple of years ago and it was a bit like australia. It did rent a lot but we actually went in october expecting terrain. And it didn't disappoint this speech.

How do you find referral partners. And what do you do to that them to increase your confidence so that when you make that referral you know that they're going to do. Good work for your clients a deep bench as you said because as part of my value proposition is helping advisors figure out a whole number of possible solutions. That that they're going to need they go down a path of perhaps the a model and so some of those some of those contacts were just built up over my my years and years and years in the industry and they they came through whatever circumstances than others. I've i've specifically sought out either to kind of deepen my bench or to or to fill a gap in that in that. That's always an interesting exercise and that will forever be be something i'll do because something else will come along and nokia. There's a solution. Maybe we need for that. And it's an interesting exercise. Because i had people that just have not been responsive to me and i can out region out and i know there's a lot of people that are always some sales pitch and so sometimes someone misinterpret while you're reaching out to but that but when i'm reached out in more eloquently but basically and hey i might be in a position to send you referrals asking for any compensation in return. I just would like to learn more about your platform. And and even when i present that some sometimes people either are slow to get back to me or don't get back to me and i just think wow if they won't get back to to me when i'm kinda tossing him a softball how are they. How responsive are they going to be two advisers. I might send them. And and that's that's quite telling on the front end. I try to give people balance. The dow is a busy world. And maybe this kind of missed the first message but but you can kind of feel things out and mad. That's how you and i got to know each other. I just reached out to you very responsive and have a conversation after that and and here we are down this path. So i think it's that kind of initial thing and then just really feel and people out in in once they know. Hey look. I'm not. I'm not trying to sell you just trying to be a good partner here. And what kind learn. And then it's interesting because without even trying you're setting upper a situation where they're gonna reciprocate in the long run without me even asking for a by the way.

And the youngest son the youngest who's been actually with affirm the longest smiled and said well you know that's a conversation we had bam brad's name popped into my head and i was like. Hey guys when. You're ready to do this. I got somebody for you. This is what he does. And you've stayed top of mind one. Because of the fact that i actually do trust you secondly because you have a very narrow focus which means that. I know that you're gonna do what i would refer people to you for but at the same time you have helped build a relationship with makes that referrals a lot easier to to go back and forth and i'm not gonna flood you with new clients as you're not gonna flood me and that's not really the point because as we deepen our relationship we are going to know exactly who you're looking for right so everybody here at problem is gonna know okay if we come across this person. They're the person that we refer to to. Brad right and you're going to be able to do the same thing with us when it comes to outsourcing. What is the number one thing in your experience. In working with financial services professionals that is their biggest obstacle or the biggest category of outsourcing. That if you could wave a magic wand and takata which everybody would outsource this. What would that be at that. You were going to say what. What is the biggest challenge for the person to appear on my radar. So i did separately. You answer that answer this first one and then we'll go back to that one. As far as what my number one. Category of outsourcing. It is quite wide. In the reason i say that is. That's part of why my value proposition exists. Because unfortunately in this case of help advises with if you want to transition into that aura model. Unfortunately it's not just one or two vendor types that that you you need to work with. Its compliance folks marketing. Folks it's technology folks it's custodians. It's back office folks. it's it's all these different vendors and so certainly some are more bigger decisions if you will. You must must make decisions that nice to make decisions kind of thing. And and so that in my world. That's perhaps your custodial partner that that's a big one. That's really going to move the needle. The other end of the spectrum is dozens of different technology applications. You could use you know maybe that. That's the last little piece that adds one little bell or whistle is that's not going to be as pivotal but it still might be important to you. So even something as simple as someone sees that. I use callan lee on my website of how people arrange a conversation with me in the grand scheme of things. That's that's a pretty minor vendor compared to a custodian but yet it's a very powerful tool nonetheless that i think any industry people should be thinking of it. Certainly in the financial services industry is a way for people to get a hold of so. Let's let's talk about people getting on your radar. People are listening to this. And they're like. Oh my gosh. I'd love to refer some business spread. Who who who are the ideal people i mean do you. Do you love working with the wirehouse transition or d transition. Or what what is your. What is your favorite as far as the people come to me. They're seeking out my services. It's primarily anyone again that's interested in that ra model. There isn't an interested because a lot of folks just simply haven't even dip a toe let alone learn let alone be and not use baseball analogy in the fifth in kind of that education process and so in many instances that is wirehouse folks quite often. That's independent broker dealer folks for for the example you gave. Unfortunately there are some constraints even that independent world that that you can perhaps be free of a net or a model. The evan talked to a fair number of people that are. Add an existing. Ira that's not the rhone that they've kind of outgrown that opportunity in wanna launch off onto their own or as well so it's it is it does run the gamut but primarily the more the more pain points you have now and the bigger that gap is to the promised land is where the opportunity is so so something like a wirehouse adviser both from economic jump and a flexibility jump is just a significant advantage. That makes it appeal to have that kind of
