As historic reductions in spending, consequential reforms and lift people out of poverty into the workforce, Rey and government overreach, there are no new taxes, no new government programs. In a statement, President Biden says the agreement represents a compromise, which means not everyone gets what they want. Central to the compromise a two year budget deal that would hold spending flat for 2024 and increase it by 1% the following year in exchange for raising the debt limit for two years. Support from both parties will be needed to win congressional approval before a projected June 5th government default. I'm Julie Walker

"walker" Discussed on Daily Whispers
"As you do one thing, you do all things. This little bitty sage wisdom has penny. Biggie in my life. As you do one thing you do all things. Once you see it, you can't unsee it. You can't un know it. Welcome to your daily whisper. My name is Cara Bradley. I am just a human being on the other side of this microphone. Looking into how I live, how I want to live. What's holding me back from realizing my potential. Where I need to lean in and what I need to let go of and for the next few episodes, this little mini series, I'm going to be sharing my interpretation of this sage saying. As you do one thing, you do all things. These are just ways to look at the multifaceted gem. Called a human being. And to look from different perspectives, different facets. Last week I talked about stopping. Stopping different behaviors for three days, the week before I talked about doing what it takes or knowing what it takes. And this week we're just going to focus in that lens, a hyper awareness on our everyday human behaviors because they leave clues to how we are living. I used to talk about this a lot when I taught yoga. I would share with the students how you take a pose, how you sustain a pose, how you approach a pose, exit a pose, it's all there. How you are living your life. It is all a reflection. I should say. How you put your mat down as a reflection of how you are preparing other things or to do other things in your life. This is why, once we see it, we can't unsee it. So for this week, I'm just going to be highlighting the flashlight on different, everyday human behaviors. Encouraging you to take a deeper look at how you are approaching these behaviors. This is mindfulness. You don't have to sit down with your eyes closed and your forefinger and thumb together. To be practicing mindfulness. Mindfulness is an awareness of what you're doing moment to moment without judgment. So, for today, we're going to look at walking. How are you walking? From here to there. And I tell you this because, and I like to use this as a first behavior because when I was running for a yoga, we had a couple little hallways, and we also had a chiropractor in the back. Doctor Mike. And I would see doctor Mike. Every week. And he was also a yogi, and he practiced, and he was in the hallways. And he would say to me, Cara you speed through the hallways. With your chin jutted forward, your head thrust forward. Like you're always on a mission, which is so me. And he said, you know, just slow it down, slow down your gate. It'll help your head relax back into place. You know, and then it'll help the other structures in your body. It makes so much sense. But I was am still probably, I'm going to check it out this week, a fast walker. And it's an indication of how I'm doing other things in my life. So I'm going to ask you this week. Over the course of the next few days, to notice different things. Today, it's walking. Catch yourself. Walking. Notice if you're on speed, if you're always walking fast. I mean, I'm a New Yorker. New Yorkers get on the streets, and we fly. And we have a mission. But notice, are you a slow walker? You mindful? Do you take your time do you look up or you always looking down? Can you look around? Do you meet people's gaze? Or are you a fast walker? Very, very productive type of walker like me. There's no judgment here. It's just noticing. Because you may be speeding or distracted while doing other things. You are, as you do one thing you do all things. So for today, it's simply to notice how you're walking. No judgment. This is about building awareness, because once we have awareness, then we can create change much more easily. I love this. I love this platform, thank you for being here. Take a look at the show notes because I do post prior episodes on these subjects. And I've definitely talked about this one in the past. So check out those show notes and if you'd like to go deeper with me. I invite you into the arena. The four week mastermind that I run for women, every month, there's two paths, if you want to go deep in your inner practices, if you want to learn how to reach out into the world and make an impact. And we have a great time and let me tell you, we definitely grow together. So take a look at those show notes and I will check in with you tomorrow. Happy walking..

"See on tape, which is a rare combination of size and speed. I was struck by how good his run defense was watching him throughout the years, as well as how smooth he is in coverage at his size. Also, to Todd's point, I think a lot of the lack of pass rush production, just 9 and a half clear sacks, can be attributed to how he was used in the Georgia defense. That said, if he is drafted in the top three, he would have the fewest career sacks of any edge rusher taking that high since 2000, which is when the NCAA started tracking stats. I mean, this would be historically unprecedented. I hear names like Daniel hunter, thrown around, adap OA, rashawn Gary, none of those players were taking in the top ten. Did you learn it was a third round draft pick? So to me, it's about value and the risk you'd be taking and drafting a player with incredibly high upside, but I think questionable a questionable floor. Yeah, so just to reiterate what Todd said about him playing really well in big moments, and George's two wins in the college football playoff. Walker had a combined ten pressures, including a career high.

"Around this beautiful house. Soon noticed, as we were walking around, there were lots of hours. And so we got in the car to drive back to this field from langdon and suicide. I know Alan was not okay. I'm just, but I didn't know that he was no mythologist as well. Because he told they had written this book about hours. And then we sort of put two and two together. And realize that our Ghana was the Alan government. And he wasn't a normal father. In fact, he knows a very little amount, but. I don't think he did from that time on. We were good friends, because we just got on well together. And then from them, I obviously heard about Alan's books and we started reading them. And have never stopped since. Yeah, he's always very interesting about the forms of friendships. He doesn't tend to form franchises with other writers, but he put him in a particle physicist or an archeologist or a historian. He's very interesting. Should we have the first clip? Can we hear the first? We've got some clips to see now. I should just say from two sources. One is from the book itself some readings from the book by Robert Pao. The actor who was at Manchester grammar school with Alan and indeed matches the gram school is the book is dedicated to MGS. And also some clips of Alan speaking to Liz his daughter who's here this evening. Shall we have the first clip of a bit from the novel? Joe let go of the post. He flung himself against the sour into the coat onto the vial beneath. And the man opened his arms to let him in, but did not hold him. Joe roared. He yelled, he wretched. Then he pushed himself away and crawled to the opposite seal and sat. His wrists on his knees, shaking. His head drooped. It was a hurl of thrombo a winter, said the man. A lumpa hummock of night. Nothing more. Joe could not speak. But summer is nearly come. Joe lifted his head. Chaco. Treacle. Walker. Treacle walker, I have in this land. What sort of a name is that? I heal. He. Made better. All things save jealousy. Which none can. He opened his bag and took out a bone. It was a shin. Narrow, old, hollow, yellow, crazed with black lines, polished, and holes cut in, and has slit at one end. What's that? Said Joe. I made it from a man that sang. Can I ever see? Treacle walker passed the bone to Joe. He held it and felt it shape. What's it for? Jekyll walker took back the bone, put his mouth to the slit, his fingers on the holes, closed his eyes and played. The chimney filled with two. It was a tune with wings, trampling things, tightened strings, buggers and bogles and brags on their feet. The man in the oak, sickness and fever that set in long-lasting sleep the whole great world with the sweetness of sound, the bone did play. Joe sapp and did not speak. The chimney was silent. It is a way for him to sing now. Said treacle walker. Can I ever go? Treacle walker passed the bone across the fire basket. What must I do? Hold, and breathe. Joe put the bone to his lips. Like this. He blew. The notes came, pure. The call of a cuckoo. Across the valley, a cuckoo answered. Did you hear that? Cuckoo. Erica, let me throw this to you. Can you give us a sort of a pricy of the book? I mean, tell us, tell us what we're just we know there's a boy and we know there's a man. What else do we need to know? You don't want to know too much. I don't think it's true. If you haven't read it, there's a boy. There's a man, there's a correspondence between worlds. What I feel about Allen's work is that he shows us that the connection between this world and the other world is right in front of us. If we choose to look, if we choose to step into it. And the two worlds are like a palimpsest. Existing on top of one another. And it's the story of a boy discovering how he can exist inside time and outside of time and how the objects that are all around him connect him to magic. That's what I would say about this book. I have to say that's a pretty brilliant person. Sorry. That doesn't make you want to read the book. I think nothing will. I'm interested in the objects that sort of string through the book. I mean, we'll come on to we'll come on to the bodies a bit later on. But right from the beginning that there are objects. There's the bone of a sheep and treacle walker has a bag that was bob about the name treacle walker in the middle. All of these objects, as you could see that Alan was fingering various the Dober, which is a marble. These are real objects. As an archeologist, I mean, is that something that sort of you respond to? Absolutely. And that flute you've just heard about really exists. It dates to the Bronze Age and it is made of human bone. This is a piece of research that was done by colleagues of ours recently and it was found in a burial. And archeologists have spent a long time working out how to read time through the layers that build up with a cake and we go back through those lenses through time. But that's not how time comes at us. Time comes at us, it erupts out of those layers and objects come to us and touch us from different times. And so what I love about the objects in this book is that that's what they're doing. They come out of all sorts of different times. The child's time, time, long past, who knows time in the future. And they are the points of connection that create these moments of encounter, where time is loosened and you feel its presence with you. So the flute, the marble, the donkey stone, which for people who don't know what it is, it's a byproduct of the cement industry that kept housewives busy to polish their doorstep and show that they were good industrious women who looked after the threshold now in Alan's hands. Something completely other because of course his house is resonant with these objects that are hidden under the threshold the half and in the chimney that are about keeping your house safe from things that should not enter. And the care you show to the house is part of how you keep things out or let things in and show your care for a place. So the materials, the objects are about the things that one must do to care for the places that one lives in. And we are just that momentary inhabitants of them. There are other people who have come before and will come after..

"In the idea of forgiveness and like how someone can forgive themselves. Be reborn in some way. That was the big theme for that but it was. It was a powerful and important. But but we'll walk your experiences not been like with the iconography. It's more of the the philosophical ideas or the spirituality of it. I mean now. I do see the i mean going through golden dawn stuff. There's there's a lot of that. Yeah i was talking to the other walker. Yeah so it's as far as simple visual civilization when not not so much but conceptually spiritu- spiritual concepts that come in those will. There will be prevalent prevalent christian concepts and thinking about just. I mean like forgiveness and grace and love like the past few experiences i've had the resounding theme has been loved. And that's that's that's a good thing. It's talks about god's love and which is interesting because that goes hand in hand with the other One of the most profound biblical verses that says we're created in the image of god and so it's like to connect to what that is unpack. That i think i think we can kind of peek behind the curtain as it were to the curtain of the soul and find find out more of what that image of god looks like what the substance of that is and the good news is well. What is god in short three letter sentence. God is love and so that seems to be a fundamental end is something that constantly arises in the themes of. Yeah and you're not alone. Not respected means certainly like the the concept of love and everything is love in the universe is love and god is love. That's something that i've experienced to. I think it's just because i i haven't worn. I'm wearing a different set of filtered. Glasses look gazing upon the world. So if i had sort of the christian filter glasses on. I would integrate that into my in my beliefs. If i have the the other agnostic glasses on then it would. You know. Or if i'm buddhist. I would integrate it probably that concept in my buddhist beliefs. So i think it's interesting. I think one of the coolest things about psychedelics. We come to these very similar conclusions as just as human beings having the experience and everyone walks of life. Everyone has their own experience. But we all come back to these very similar themes that are the foundation for it. So and i really love. I love your idea. Walker that like you using the psychedelics as a tool in a tool kit to enhance your your your path toward enlightenment as opposed to.

It's a tool in the toolkit and you can use it for you know for therapeutic reasons or to kind of clean cleanse your third eye and and do a spiritual pallet cleanser or you cannot and you can integrated into your into your practice that way absolutely because i mean after all after any psychedelic trip we all have to come back to our human experiences in this integration as challenging but big part of any psychedelic experience. Whose experiences psychedelics well. I think this is a nice note to wrap opted podcasts. On thank you walker. Thank you so much.

"It's one thing that can't control and that scares me no end. I'm jessica harris. You're listening to from scratch. My guest is tristan. Walker founder of walker and company brands a company that makes products tailored to the unique needs of the black and latino population. What are some other ideas that you had that you were flirting with before. Starting this specific company because you had a bunch of them know. I spent nine months at recent our thinking about You know the most ambitious thing that i could build. i wanted to build a bank For underserved communities the unbagged under banked. I wanted to fix trucking. In the country in freight i thought about an idea to fix childhood obesity. Only to realize in those first seven months. I wasn't gonna be the best person in the world. Is all those problems and one advice that i would get a one bit of advice to get from Ben horowitz tristan. Like what is the thing that you fundamentally feel that you'd be the best person world to solve. Do remember like the day you were like. Oh i have an idea absolutely For about fourteen years prior to my starting bubble couldn't use razors and you know electric trimmers. Weren't that great for me. And i used to cream. What's that so like nair right. Like i didn't use narrate self but like it's the type of dilatory came you. Let it sit on your face for six to eight minutes. You don't need a razor. wipe it off in. Your hair's gone now just the thought about that. It's pretty crazy right like how's it even possible because a lot of those products contain hazardous harsh chemicals that can burn your skin You know it smells terribly among other things. And you know i had my last Kind of purchase of those things. And i just got incredibly frustrated and i started asking the question. Why hasn't this been solved for folks. And i remember speaking to an old retired consumer packaged goods executive. Ask him that same question and he said something. A bit facetiously. Ace attrition guliga photos of black men hundred hundred fifty years ago. None of them had razor on their faces. And i thought i was like Let me look into this. I remember going to flicker and entering generic search terms like black men and nineteen twenties harlem renaissance. I went through twelve hundred photos. I didn't not find one photo of elected about space and at that point i said wow. There's something going on here. Why is this the case. They all shaved their all cleanly even right but we can't use multi raises and they didn't exist back then. So what are they use. And that sent me down. This path. Really understanding You know developing away that everyone used to shave which is in our opinion. The best way to shake. Isn't it interesting like you're basically going back to the basics which is just a single rate. That's it simple as that And away i think about it right now is In twenty thirty years is gonna be a lot more curly-haired folks in this country. What are they going to be using. You are also the founder of code twenty forty which is a nonprofit. it's an organization that helps people of color get internships at silicon valley startups. And you work with laura Wiedeman powers who's the ceo. Tell me a little bit about that. So so i laura Was a classmate of mine and business school one of the most impressive folks that i know in co twenty forty man was really founded To ensure that more folks don't make the same mistake. I did realizing that. Silicon valley exists too late. I realized that. When i was twenty four had i realized the potential valley when i was fourteen. Sixteen eighteen Perhaps my career trajectory of be markedly different right now. Why is it called twenty forty. Who's in twenty forty. That's when the majority minority flip happens. Where folks that color start to become the majority of this country. I wanna talk about like what the current state of the world. Silicon valley world is So google has close to fifty thousand employees. One percent of the technology workers black same at facebook one percent and by the way right now blacks are thirteen to fifteen percent of. Why is this number so low. So there's i think there's a couple of ways to kind of unpack that question. I think i. They're still implicit bias in the interview process. You know our co- twenty forty fellows. We have a ninety plus percent fulltime off rate. These stellar engineers. And i remember like one of our first. Few summers nude have fellows go and interview for full-time positions and a lot of them weren't getting offer. Some a lot of the larger technology companies and we started to wonder why and we started to realize that a lot of those fellows were suffering in the interview process with the whiteboard interviews So you're asked Kind of engineering kind of problem or logic kind of question you have to go to the whiteboard in kinda right out your your thinking around how you answer it. None of these kids were exposed to that kind of interviewing co twenty forty. We try and think about things that can help. Kind of mitigate that implicit bias not only companies but also the help students get around that as well. I wanna talk about queens. Yeah let's do it do it. How did it influence you. What's special about queens. Yeah well. I think it's also important to really understand kind of where. I grew up in queens. So i was born in south jamaica queens Forty projects Six years old. Move the flushing queens. Latimer projects. Newest latimer So he helps Thomas edison film of the light bulb in one of the kind of earliest like black scientists really really stellar stellar stellar man So a lot of my upbringing was in the projects right. I think that's important context as well right. It taught me a lot about grit resilience and how important it was. Do good taught me the importance of loyalty courage. Right what are some you know all these big words but like bring it down from ten thousand feet. What life was like daily without with a mom. Who's working at time warner cable. I mean look. I mean i know what it's like to take a food stamp and buy your food store right. I know what it's like.

"They're really great people. They really seem to care. They're incredibly helpful. Every step of the way yeah. I love the platform. I think it's fantastic. And now that they have a deal with. dr course. that's right it will be imprint too. Yeah yeah absolutely. Yeah so. I mean i look forward to that but i also just think You know the digital platform is so cool and it does allow so many people who would otherwise not see the book especially you know some of my relatives. I mean that you know. These people have never read a comic in their lives but they hop on amazon prime. And they're you know they're reading my book which is so fun you know so yeah can't say enough good things about michael. Are there more stories to tell is with these myths and legends or his double walker a pretty much one show. Oh we could. We could keep going easily easily. There's always more to tell. I think it was. Neil gaiman who i who. I adore toya once. Said the only reason a story has a happy ending is because it stops being told but we're dealing potentially with with ferries who have been around long before men and potentially long after man. Yeah there's a lot of stories to be told there so many myths that we reference in double walker That i that. I desperately wanted to explore further so yeah i don't know it would be neat to to revisit some of these myths in characters to build them out a bit more but for now. We're we're we hope that everyone feels like they had a full meal with double walker in that if that is the only version of this that he ever get. We're very comfortable. That at a friend suggests that we that we do Gemma's version admit to tell the same story but from her perspective. It'd be it'd be really be something. Yeah i like when when people do that. Were were sent. You see it from a totally different perspective than That's gonna be a lot of fun. Are you working on anything now..

"That's something that i'll do. I'll send it along. To noah noah very rarely comes back with notes saying hey. Could you do this do that. He's he's very good about allowing me to express myself in that time and not even as a consequence of that more as a reflection of noah's incredible talent when he sends me are. I have never been never needed to be like. Hey could you go rework this element. He's got great sensibilities. Ah so in that way. Where where a great partnership. What do you say no. Yes pretty much exactly like he said. I think there are sometimes where where i'm reading the script and i think Oh this type of panel would i. I'll throw something in or like a alec. Add little things here in the air as like a like a character quirk or something and specifically like one instance in this loca when coli goes up to the old man of store and he takes his picture in front of it you know. I added an extra frame where he's making a silly face and then he's doing a serious face you know and this little things like that. That are really fun you know and we cut. I think we both really like to surprise each other so I doing that stuff. And i love when he's excited about it when he sees it and as far as the color palette. There's almost a dream. Were maybe a nightmarish quality to it. Was that something that came to you. And i both talked about now. Well this is actually so. This is the first time. I've ever actually colored an entire like sequential story. So i was honestly i didn't know how to approach it at first but i thought that It made sense since. So many of my influences on this book where fairy tale illustrators that i would try to kind of capture that feeling and So i just used. I used colors for the entire book and that mix them together and try to figure out dif- different creative ways to get wild color schemes. And then sometimes it's just really fun to play with lighting and the like colors in the sky and things like that i had. I had a great time with it. But yeah that's basically michael I actually did a little research. About what a double walker is. And there's a german word for it of course and i don't want to spoil anything but they're actually pretty frightening. Was that what you base. The story on deputy killer myth or legend. I go through these things. i think. Many creative people become kind of obsessed with the concept quite recently. I became obsessed with with those movies. There's several of them where there's a phone call coming from within the house. I just found the idea terrifying. So i went through and watched a bunch of movies of varying quality About that idea in during the during the process of formulating double walker..

"I'm the composer of the matrix. Matrix reloaded and the matrix revolutions. Hi this is. John delancey kind of the things that aren't there. Well you know. Sometimes you have the experience anyway but people at all day thanks in part because of the hopeful nature of genes vision but also because of its message of diversity and inclusions. I i wanna welcome michael conrad and also nowhere bailey. Who have a really cool graphic novel double walker and one of the cool things about it is right off the bat. It quotes this from shakespeare. Sleep thou and i will wind in my arms fairies begun the all the all the way away. I love anything. We shakespeare gets my attention. And then you have scotland as well and legends and myths totally on board. So michael had this story. Come to you. I know both of you. You and noah had worked together before right. So noah our previous story was similar in the regard that it featured An unreliable narrator and we we love that because we think i think we share the philosophy that in life everything is told by an unreliable narrator and we kind of take that for granted So it's something that we really liked to play within in the stories that we tell we really didn't know the next step in until i found myself in the uk. And i took a trip very similar to the one that the protagonists in the story take and i was just so blown away by the natural beauty of the scottish highlands. It's listeners if you've never been do it it's it'll change your life in. It certainly changed mine beyond that much like you. A passion for mythology for fairy tales in particularly for some of the more grim and bleak ones. That have kind of been polished up over the years presented in a way that has reframed them as positive beings and as we as we all know all beings are on a spectrum morally and ours is leaning to the darkest end of it for both of you. How this collaboration work between artist and writer do you write something and then pass it off. To noah is at hand in hand you write it all. I name you give it to know and then both of you can comment will start with you. Michael with no because we're so connected In terms of our interests and our goals as creators much of it happens in conversation. I'll i'll i'll get an idea. I'll thrown. At noah hill throwback some ideas. Noah's much more of a participant in the writing element than he's given credit for it but in terms of the actual draft in the script..

Where are you in this process. And and what do you think will be the determining factor for you to get into this crazy. I i know you've been in the octagon so you know what a battle is and your warrior your whole career. What would it take for herschel walker to jump in that race. Well you know i. It just takes that my family you know. They're they're They're putting together as well. Because it's not just about me. And that's why i keep telling people people to style like tomorrow decide right here. That's the guy. I got decide at my own time because i said this is bigger than just plan football. This is bigger than plan Getting into the octagon. This is the united states senate seat that can change the world know it can change georgia. It can change a lot of things so it's not something i got. I need to take lightly. I need to take it very very seriously. And that's what i've been doing and people may not understand that. But they don't understand herschel walker guys if you don't understand her to walk it has nothing you can do to me. They're got to deter me from my mission and my mission his and make the right decision for the state of georgia. Make the right decision for this. United states of america. Because i love this country. I love the state of georgia. I love this country stands for. we're country law and order wisconsin. They have borders. And i'm like that's what i that's what i know. And then you know. I love our military base every three weeks. I love the united states military right now. I think what we're doing. This country is not right to them. Let me ask you this. Because i think this is determinative in in so many different ways. If you if you've heard what stacey. Abrams and raphael warnock in jim. I'm sorry joe biden has said you know jim. Crow two point zero. Meanwhile the state of delaware has the most restrictive voting laws in the country compared to georgia. Which has some of the most accessible how they hurt that state with that narrative. Well they just continue to use that word jim crow. You know like i say. I'll say an element. You mentioned jim crow racism. Ah you're racist nobody can say anything. Let's get away from that. But i think people have to be on as i said. I love the lord. Jesus i love my god but you gotta speak the truth. The truth is we have a problem going on with something. That's going on country. Our leaders don't seem to want to respect what the constitution is united states that stands for and one of the things i was looking at. I say the ultimate office is you're supposed to defend the constitution. Foreign and domestic. That's the tate. Well i hear that. They want to change the constitution but the constitution is bigger than that. No part of whether you're republican or democrat should have the right to change the constitution. I wanted to explore this further with you. I like the idea that you're doing it your way and i know you that if you get in. I know you well enough and a long enough. That if you're in you're in to win that. I do know herschel walker. We love having you back. Your dear friend. Think the world you would love to see. Iran would support your candidacy in a heartbeat.

"Like the ways world's mersal and stuff like that that's right in all seriousness. I it to me. I think walker should be the number one. Pick here of the litter I tend to disagree about paxton. It's not that. I don't like them as a pitcher. It's just the injury worries me. A little bit oto as shown that he has that ability on depending on the price tag. I might be a little bit more confident with you. In terms of injury history with him Depending on how long he wants that contract for if he's looking for three in the blue jays are offering him to. I say me in the middle given to an option. Maybe a mutual option. Or we'll see what happens. But yeah i just think it. Stop pussyfooting around just walker and let's let's solidify this rotation because it's in desperate need of doing so is and you know. Let another thought. I had when they got matt's is if anything that is the opposite of that instability rotation where at signing taiwan walker or jacob Add stability to your tation walker. Had his injury problems or is he is not ozias. Stayed healthy for the most part. And in the reason why i brought up wilner In his thoughts on that is because last year the blue days off offroad rizzi a pretty decent contract. Did i think it was just shy of fifty million so that interest has gone away there have been reports that they have been recently connected with jay. Goede So i i think they're still players there if they don't get it in my mind. I think that's where nigger walker but to your point out. You could be gone at time. There may be. There's a team that knows they're out on a busy or paxton is like okay. That walker stiller grabbed him before the blue jays. Do or anybody else. So it's gonna be interesting to see how they fill this out guys. It really is on any final thoughts on bauer or any of those days. We talked about gonna pull topic out of nowhere on you guys know. We have the agenda listening listening chatter going on twitter right now so that that biggest note i think they are gonna miss out on walker. They don't strike.
