Well, then call the soon to be former mayor was emotional today and for good reason he got choked up while talking about going from being a door Chester kid to the mayor of Boston, And then he spoke with great pride about his accomplishments as mayor like lowering the crime rate and raising the graduation rate. Eventually, he went off script, looking straight into the camera, thanking everyone from the bottom of his heart. Now when it came time for questions He said he would not be endorsing a candidate in the mayoral race. And actually, this was funny.

Secrets Of A Grand Prix Photographer, Bahrain Testing Day 2
"To go with today's action i'm joined by grand prix alex kalinowka and a special guest photography. Extraordinaire stephen t. To get his perspective from the front line. Stephen thank you so much for joining us today. it's been a very busy couple of days and bahrain How is the great nice to be here. Thank you for inviting me. Yeah it's been been okay at as you said. The weather was was fit. Weirder than we expected. I think everyone thought we were gonna come here. Very benign and a ball. They were able to really halt yesterday. And and we have to sandstorms but amazingly I think the amazing thing was caused the often is still managed to get to the time that they did a landau for about a day. That saying how amazed there was that you manage to get such a such a quick time in and he said that he thinks the because the track is Has got such a. It's a very rough track very wraps up. He seems to think that maybe the oldest a very very fine sand that was being blown around. What's going into the cracks and wasn't really effective in sumatra. 'cause they said it looks a lot worse. The cheap felt basically. So that's quite interesting. So how was that from your perspective because obviously it was very very sandy on friday. A love wins. And when you get bahrain as well you have to deal with the conditions of going from light to dark as a photographer. How does that change things. Foyer day these tests have been quite long. There's actually quite nice to have the dnc the otherwise everything will be a little bit one dimensional. You'd be reasonably nice light in the morning. He's got reasonably life nights. Layoffs at all or you should But it's nice. It's nice to have the opportunities to the lives as well. I'm here with them choosing mclaren so we're only allowed to even be on track or in team garage if you work and they see what folded at one team so we could allow full overseeing the garage then all out and circuit two very separate team says guys are on track. Spend the whole weekend on track guys in the in the cowards and spend the whole weekend in that garage is but so so it. It's quite nice to have to the you know the the change of life because as soon as the lights come on you can stop doing different things etcetera so It otherwise it would be very very long day on a bit. One dimensional when you set up for the weekends. You and the other talkers. Guts bahrain for the weekend diesel to come together make list of like the shots you want to get or is it very much A little bit more fluid than that shopping list is kind of creative. I in a client whether it be working might multiple dot com or ulcers. Full repay racing. We were We we put them yesterday. They they went suppress Last night basically. So they needed. They needed five parades and And pictures of every car. The team sponsors. We were all have big shopping list of stuff they need so it's very much driven by but yet you're absolutely right we do. It's around a on a breakdown. Who can do an five of the days. The best time to get the shot get shot there is a lot of discussion about basically and obviously in preseason testing updates as well which is quite important factor for editorially and i guess for you guys this photographer how do you kind of with that kind of aspects of preseason testing as well. What about talk of his mom. He's tossed with looking for that stuff and shoots just basically shoots stuff on circuit tries to get angles but my show walser. What the what. The teams are doing differently. So that's that's that's very much role this year because there's no active free actress to the line. I know access to other people's got the one working working working in it's it's very sham an od on the oneal and tracks Soup scenario about. He's been with this gopher nisa kind of see stuff so it's kind of interesting to hear it from especially within the time currently in but you know you've been you've been at the track stephen and you've been watching things happens. There been anything that's kind of caught your eye for the past couple of days. I mean just the number of laps they've been doing is one thing. Obviously we all know the calls on all the other they. They social differences to the merrill basically the same as last year. So somebody's been doing testing for chip more years than cats. Cats are remember One of the features of testing nor in especially you know going back a few years was the cause would sometimes do you know first day of testing four or five laps and spend the rest of the time in the couch being being get the updates in an engineer stunning scratching their heads over a various positive. But they've just been they've been pretty pretty now and they just been going round and round around so i think good other than that frustration for us i suppose The the there's been a lot flow is on the cars and And that's not something that Clients we go out to us basically because that gives away lots of secrets. So those those those locks have to be Speeches copy used from the laps. That's happening on and then hopefully they've been using the the arrow gates as well and a lot so That this There's been quite a lot of. Let's be quite a lot of that going on the last two days especially in the
"walser" Discussed on Psychologists Off The Clock
"That we can get into so I was talking to someone a while ago. Who said that? He doesn't ever think about his death. Just never thinks about it and that was a little surprised by that. I think for me it. Pops did mind from time to time but I actually think that's the case for many people. It's just not on their radar. What do you think is going on there? Why do you think certain people might have difficulty with that or just might never occur to them? I'm a little terrified of my own death. Frankly so it Kinda POPs to mind sometimes in the scary way. What do you think is going on there? Well I think you're describing it to some degree not not for everyone but for many people it's terrifying to contact the idea their own. Joey simply just avoid it and and don't think about it and I think that's part of it is i. It's too awful to recognize or too fearful to to contact for others. It could be just learning history where people didn't talk about it even see. It'll like mass avoidance around it I think as a culture at least a nominal western culture. You know we're pretty afraid of it. We are expected to get over it pretty quickly. We have ideas about deaths that are like cry forbidden and move on and you know I mean. I'm glad we have rituals and things like funerals that sort of any helpful but I think people are afraid to think about their own death in general or maybe they just never talked about and they don't in their family and so just sort of a learning history that leads them sort of separate from the idea of death I suppose ultimately some of what. You're talking about two points. To other kinds of notions that have to do with religiosity years. Where people think that there is no desolate. Don't worry about it either. It's only a in your state of being from being alive body to the spirit or an energy or an entity of some sort and so that's a fair number of people. Don't worry about death for that reason as well. It doesn't mean they're not afraid of death it just means they don't dwell on it because they don't see it as a final aspect of life now. It's a good point. Depending on your view of what happens next makes it may be a changes. The the way that you think about it absolutely so that extension that we have of in his office context and perspective taking right that we can extend ourselves into the future. I think can relieve in some ways. That sense of death is i. I can see myself far into the future and I know that I've been here long into the past and you can get into. A space of there is no end until mean logically. You can say I know that one day I will buy or something like that but because of that extension the capacity to extend ourselves into the future I think sometimes it makes the illusion that we will not die or that somehow we will extend beyond ourselves. Yeah there's something experiential about what you're talking about because we all know logically yes. There is going to be a death date at some point. We don't know when that is typically but I think what you're talking about is just really experiential contact in that sense of mortality. How might people do that? What what are some ways that people can just bring that into sharper focus if they are having difficulty contacting whether it's it's yourself for a client who's? Who's not contacting that what what might people do? I think some of the exercises that are in act are helpful and death meditation and a visiting your own funeral Talking just simply talking about your own passing can bring that to mind and maybe talking with your with other people about like how many times in your life have. Do you recall talking about your own death with somebody very often. Yeah maybe occasionally but not too not too often as probably the practical right like my will is here Policies is there and you know people can do those kinds of things because it feels sort of practical problem solving. We don't often talk about our fear that space or whether or no fear or the fear that we have of how it will impact others and what will it mean for others and even the notion there will. We will be remembered in some waiver period of time but then we will cease to be remembered like there's a real kind of existential angst in there about meaninglessness and is this life isn't meaningless. You know will I be gone and then shortly after being gone I'll be fully gone with people won't even talk about anymore and I will be grape site somewhere that's not visited right so That happens to like even after people pass he will visit the grave site for awhile and some people are dedicated and committed as time passes there's less and less visits and there's a you know thought about you now and then and so there's there's really sort of painful process inside of exploring your own death and again. I want to emphasize it. It's not morbid. It's about knowing so that you can engage now that consciousness is important. And since you're here anyway you're here in your conscious you know you're here what will you do? You can close down and shut down in height and be afraid or you can take risks and open up and taste life as much as possible and I'm voting for the ladder when I'm working with my clients because I know that they can get so closed off and so afraid and rich in that life is just passing them by their sitting in their homes or afraid to love or afraid to create deep in meaningful relationships. Now if you think about parts of existential ISM is bound. It's not just exist. It's exists authentically. Speed here fully in authentically making choices that are about meaning. I can't think as a psychologist who's interested in the well being of my clients but I can't think of a more rich and colorful way to engage in life than from that space. I love that and I just wanted to kind of explore something a little bit more. That's embedded in. What what you said during the start of this chronic virus pandemic. I have a a friend who said at that moment or sharing about how we're feeling in that. In that moment she was really connected with a sense of. What's the point of anything like why who cares? What's the point and I think I've heard that sometimes in in my clients as well when especially when they're very depressed is just the sense of purpose. Looseness so robin just imagine that you had a client who came in and was in that place where everything seems so pointless. How would you respond to that almost like an existential crisis? If you know let me just say when clients ask that question. What's the point is my favorite question and typically people are like? Oh Yeah let me think about what to say here but I love this question when clients ask you and I I'm like yes. I'm so happy that you're asking the question. What is your point. What will your point be? What will you? What point will you make and so I want to? You know pull pull it back in their direction and say you know you've got to feed and you can move them. Like what direction do you want to put them in? I'm curious I WANNA know about your point and those pointless meaningless nice okay. I'll give that to you now. What now what are you? GonNa do all right so the next step you take is going to be with with a point to it and so what point? I Just I love this question. So it doesn't throw me off when clients ask it. It doesn't serve to send me down the road of like scratching my head wondering what to do and I I just explore it. What point will you? May you know I love that because I think the poll is to like give them a point to say? Oh here's the point or to kind of try to convince them that there is a point but I think you take more the stance of like while. Maybe there isn't one so now. What so what are you GONNA do? And it helps them to create create for themselves. Because you're not trying to impose it on them. Lonzo often say I can't wait to. Let's enter the question. I can't wait to hear your answer right if NFC audience could see me they'd see me rubbing my hands together going. Yeah let's Kayla explore the point. Yeah your face got excited video like you can't wait to dive in there and Kinda grapple with that question. That's the fun part. The juicy part of therapy exactly this question on the table and see what choices you need to make about creating a point. Because here's the thing you know when you when you look at existentialism there's a meaning that heidegger gives. Let me just see if I can pronounce this right. So heidegger says the individual is I seen means there and seeing means being. You're there and you're being and so that is the case year alive in your conscious. It's not that we're going to undo that unless you're gonNA take your own life which hopefully client will do because they're so much colorful nece to MC and we within lie but if you're there and you're being you're aware then let's move. Let's do something. Let's create links. An even in the time of coping nineteen you can see. People doing things that are engaged. Authentic creating and grateful. I mean there's a lot of terrible things happening but people are creating meaning by showing up to the hospital and taking care of Cobra nineteen patients when they themselves could get sick. People are at seven o'clock at night in New York City coming to their windows and clapping and blowing horns and playing music to say. I appreciate you. I care that you care and grateful for what you're doing and there's people that are reaching out to each other across the world and meditating together and on trying to think about how they can overcome in a way that is helpful and supports US. And we're just looking at a video yesterday. About how fast we move in the world and how we lived our lives and we moved through life so unconsciously make so many of us. Emily moving through our lives just unconsciously day after day after day. The same. Sort of do this do this do this. We're not asking what is meaningful. I am struck. I am struck by that that isn't about authenticity and connection aliveness but we have to slow down. We had to be knocked off of our feet..

"Welcome back to the podcast so happy that you're here again. Thank you for inviting me again. I wanted to sort of set the stage for our listeners. In your latest book the heart of Act which is a wonderful book about doing act therapy in the powerful and effective way you have chapter called engaged existence and purpose and to me. This chapter felt very important and meaningful and had a big influence on clinical work. Some of the things I may be hadn't been thinking about Came to mind these big picture kind of issues about existence and purpose. So I'm really delighted that you came back on the show to talk to us about this idea and to delve into this topic a little bit. I think it's an important one. I'm happy to be here and happy to talk about Existentialism it's probably one of my favorite topics. Well why don't we start there? What do you mean by? Existential isn't for people who might not be familiar with that topic. Sure so existentialism is a Philosophical Approach to understanding humans. Were being and essentially what it's about is the focus on responsibility and choice that the human that humans being have. And that's because we're here and we're aware that consciousness is pointed to inside of that philosophy be in essentially. What people are being asked to do is choose that you are free and responsible and so what will you create in your life with that notion that awareness? I am so appreciative that you connect the dots between existential ISM and acceptance in commitment therapy and bring this survey abstract philosophical idea into the room and into the day to day existence of people at I think it is really meaningful and powerful. I just want to take a quick segue. Why is this so interesting and important to you? You just mentioned that this is one of your favorite things what is it about this all the HR Hyun. It's a really great question. Even as the younger student when I was an undergraduate I was interested in existential ISM when I was working in Kicking psychology courses and always thought it was really fascinating and when I got into graduate school. I actually did a behavioral interpretation of his existentialism as one of my comp exams and so I suppose that's more of the sort of academic answer about it but I've also you know had to contact death myself and I remember. Once as a young child a gentleman that was living with our family friend of of my parents bixler was his name. He was hit by a train and on his motorcycle and it basically killed him right and I remember feeling of very very upset by that experience in the thought of him. Not being around anymore. And what does that mean? Somebody not being around anymore as young as probably about six years old when that happened than it is about six or seven when children start to wonder about Beth and that has carried forward with me through to All the losses that have experienced in my life you what. What role does death play in our own lives and each time? I've touched athem. I write about this in the book. My mother's on death and you know why didn't the world stopped spinning when she died was hit me quite hard because it didn't just kept going and in that realizing it wasn't GonNa Stop Spinning for me either when I die and not going to stop spinning for anybody indeed Reminding me that were not special that none of us are special. None of muscle defeat death and so if we can come up against that awareness and be connected to it then maybe tasting life will feel much more valuable and important and So that's my about just a personal take on. It is only have so much time here and I really love life I I really enjoy birds in flowers and nature and interacting with people and I wanNA taste as much as I can because i. I realized that there will come a day when I will not be able to do that anymore. And I want that for the people that I worked with slow. Yeah and that's that's one of the things that you focus on in that chapter in in the heart of act is encouraging therapist. Help their clients be in contact with that sense of mortality I have a very good friend who has found this thing called death meditation as a way to contact this sense because sometimes it's a lucid right. We don't always connect to that. What do you think we there is to be learned by contacting mortality? In this way well I one thing. I think that we learn is that we don't we can't create forever and so quite often when people are suffering or maybe even just living in general. They're waiting for something. They're waiting to feel better. They're waiting for the environment to change waiting for somebody else to do something and you know they're not really paying attention to taking up the clock and that each moment you wait is how you are spending your life. You are responsible for that. And so there's a question here. Do you WANNA spend your life waiting waiting for something. It may never arrive. You know things like waiting to not feel anxious or waiting to not feel fear or waiting for happiness to arrive so that you can then have meaning the tragedy there is the time is just sticking by and you're actually creating your life. What would what I would call it a life full of waiting and so I I wish for my clients and for other people everyone I know not to be there. That's a personal stance that I take did I. Did I actually answer your question? Now I can relate to this I think sometimes it feels like oh as soon as I catch up on all these things. I need to get done as soon as I have more resources more money more time soon as my kids are older. My job changes some. There's just all these things where it feels like. Oh and then. I'll do all these things I really want to be doing. And I'm so I think what you're saying. Is THAT BY CONTACTING. The sense of the clock is ticking. We don't have forever. It brings us more into. What can I do now? Precisely what actions will I take? Today that are meaningful. Engaged alive connected. What conscious choices will I make now rather than unconscious traces to wait so hoping for something? That's going to happen in the future so I think helping our clients to get president. That doesn't have to be a morbid exploration. It can be very compassionate and thoughtful. Be about touching into what it means to only be here for a period of time and to think about how you WANNA spend that.
Rakhine and ruin: insurgency in Myanmar
"On Tuesday. A driver for the world. Health Organization was killed in rock kind state in Myanmar. After his car was hit by gunfire the attack took place in a region where government troops have been locked in fierce fighting with the Arakan Army which wants greater autonomy for the state and for the kind of Arakan people countries including Britain and America have called for an end to fighting amid the cove nineteen pandemic but clashes have intensified governments. Flailing response seems to be boosting. The Arakan Army and the and army declared a month-long ceasefire but it was rejected by the government as unrealistic. Charlie McCann Economists Southeast Asia correspondent fighting between the army and the Burmese military has escalated over the last two months as has a war of words that they've been fighting. Each group has blamed the other for firing at the. Who car which was carrying swabs from patients to be tested for Krona virus. So this conflict get it start then. The conflict erupted on January fourth. Two Thousand Nineteen not coincidentally Myanmar's Independence Day about three hundred and fifty fighters from the army attacked for police posts in northern. Rakhine state killing thirteen officers. Now there had been skirmishes between the American army and the Burmese military before that but the insurgents had never been quite so brazen in response the government. Which of course is led by Aung San Succi a Nobel Peace Prize winner instructed the army to crush the rebels and the military has since deployed an estimated. Fifteen thousand to twenty thousand troops and deployed heavy artillery airstrikes hidden and even naval patrols despite all this the economy is actually making some headway. And so what are the stakes in this fight? What is it that the army wants with African army are ethnic rock kind? Buddhists who are longing for independence. They feel neglected by the central government for decades. Rakhine is one of me and Mars poorest states and the advent of civilian rule with Aung San Suu Dci in two thousand sixteen Only exacerbated tensions the Eric a National Party won a majority of parliamentary seats in the state of Rakhine and they believed that Aung San Suu Cheese Party. The National League for Democracy would let it nominate the state's chief minister instead the ANALII appointed one of their own and the a. n. p. and and many were kind sell. This is a great betrayal. That sense of embitterment deepened in two thousand eighteen. When the police killed seven protesters and arrested that. Npr's chairman all of which contributed to further radicalizing the raccoons and this is a state in. Myanmar. There's not unfamiliar with with sectarian tensions. That's right in two thousand seventeen. The Burmese military launched its clearance operations against the hinge a persecuted Muslim. Ethnic Minority Walser lived in Rakhine state. The kind the hinge Are Two of many ethnic. Minorities got it across me and mark who are discriminated against and are advocating for fighting for more freedoms if not independence and ask for the conflict between the Arakan army on the national military. How how's that going? The military is suffering terrible casualties. And the army are are humiliating. The military I conducting hundreds of duck shins of politicians businessmen civil servants and indeed soldiers the military's accustomed to siege warfare not to the kinds of tactics being deployed by the army which hides the jungle but also operates an urban areas which takes pot shots at our patrols also does all these brazen things like bombings and abductions and to the military's really floundering. It's response the army's successes really driven in large part by the group's Commander Thuan Rot nine. I am the leader of Argon. Army Major General Plan Renai educated. He's charismatic he's young. We have lost our rights. The rights of the indigenous people in contrast to many of the leaders of the countries other insurgencies who has been described to me by an analyst as comprising the FISA Club of guerrilla leaders. The commander recently called on his followers to throw off the shackles of Burmese. Racism and colonialism. So uses this very rousing language. Harks back to the long periods when kind state was a glorious independent kingdom. Every American has a dream in their heart is slickness is mirrored. In the group's social media videos which feature attractive young soldiers declaring their love for their homeland and engaging in wholesome wrestling matches we will never ever give up and and so with its army on the back foot. Then how has the government responded to this slick operation having handedly in June? It blocked mobile Internet service to about one million people in Rakhine engine states according to Human Rights. Watch this is one of the world's longest government imposed Internet blackouts last month. That also blocked access several news websites. That report on the conflict as well as designating the Eric Armenia. A terrorist organization that then enabled police to charge journalists who interviewed. That can army's commander in chief with violating the Counter Terrorism Law and we're kind civilians are really coming under fire. Amnesty International claims that the military has been shooting indiscriminately at recline towns and has been torturing and murdering civilians. We know that more than one. Hundred thousand civilians have been displaced by the fighting and now a meteoroid reports shows that forty two civilians have died since March twenty third and so again in our we have this example of the military taking an extremely heavy handed approach against its own citizens under the watch of Aung San. Suu She I mean. Her reputation suffered greatly after the crisis. How do you see this crisis? Playing out on Sun suits. He won election twenty-six teen on her promise to bring peace to the country the fact that her government has instructed the military to crush the rebels as she put it has designated them a terrorist organization. There's no way that she'll be able to bring about peace with methods like those to me. It looks as if the conflict is only going to escalate the atkin armies ten unflicting so much damage the government will have to make some concessions and indeed has over the past six months more than two hundred hand government employees and Chen state which is just north of re kind. A lot of the fighting has taken place have resigned after being threatened by its fighters. Now the rebels don't have the firepower to defeat the government militarily but they might not need to if they can inflict enough humiliation. The government might decide to retreat from the fight and seek a political settlement. Either way see piece for the possible future curly. Thank you very much for your time. Thank you

In what what these times mean for that so really appreciate being a part of it and appreciate you as a neighbor and a friend so thankful for that so I Right out of high school enlisted in the army. I was in the eighty second airborne. Nineteen eighty one to nineteen eighty-four. I did enlistment there Shortly after that I went to the University of Houston majoring in classical studies. 'cause I love the Bible but I had this vision of being a Marine Infantry Officer. So that's exactly what I did. I ended up at the Quantico Virginia For the Marine Corps. I took a commission in the Marine Corps as an infantry officer and And did that for several years and And then God's calling for me to leave the Marine Corps and go to seminary so I attended Dallas theological seminary seminary around. Let's see nineteen ninety five to nineteen ninety nine so that was the period that I was at Dallas and depth. And that's the long made short married five kids Planted some churches in. Ethiopia was a senior pastor in In Nebraska Senior Pastor of New Jersey and then planted a church in Florida and in the meantime while I was planting the Church in Florida Light Bridge Church in Florida The Lord provided an opportunity for me to continue to work for the Department of Defense in the capacity of suicide prevention. And so that's the law store. Compressed into some short time there but but I do work full time for the Department of Defense is a suicide prevention program manager for two star. Command you know ten thousand soldiers roughly and In in in glad to be doing that and love what the Lord has me doing in the calling to passer? So that's the the long story made short. It's that's how we ended up his neighbors planting the church here in Pinellas County. Yeah and I. I don't know why I just thought about it now. But as you're I'm hearing your your bio and I I've known bits and pieces of that that's So I appreciate you sharing that. But you're not only saving the physical life through suicide prevention but you're also save in the spiritual life saving so you're not personally but you're leading careful. I I know I know. I know I totally get that You know I I am humbled debt. That in an I I worked for some of the best people on the planet on the on the Department offensive line. And obviously you know For what it's worth we're GONNA see we're going to see our soldiers who are in the medical field. This is this is. This is obvious. We're going to see them. Do Amazingly heroic things against this enemy cult cove in nineteen in the next month two months three months who knows years sustain particularly in the unit that I served so so helping those families to mitigate in and negotiate what they're facing in fighting an enemy on the battlefield cove in nineteen. So I'm I'm thankful to be a part of that like I said I serve grew people and then the churches is kind of rallying around it. So that's that's that's awesome appreciate again sharing that and so you're seeing you're seeing all different viewpoints from this from the the military side the government side but also from the spiritual side of what the church is facing during this time the Church has this is unique situation of reaching people in a much different capacity as before now where we don't really have a brick and mortar facility anymore. It's a we are becoming the the the soldiers of Christ getting on the ground. The frontlines going to these people getting in front of them on the computer trying to trying to just trying to be be the disciples of Christ getting in these homes as best as we can in sort of like GonNa touch on that a little bit but I wanna make this more of like a a positive hopeful podcast because this this could be someone's Easter service her so joe I would love for you to open up in prayer and then we'll come out. I'll continue the conversation. Yeah awesome so thank you. Lord were we are We are humbled and broken and blessed by the fact that we are called sons and daughters of the living.

That is sustaining and encouraging. And we look forward to an turney with you and and in time right now where you have us in this place. We are encouraged that we will never leave us nor forsake us and so as we talk about Easter the power of the resurrection life from day to day with Brian and and and of course the audience. Lord pray that Your Holy Spirit would be at work in US and through us for Your Eternal glory we ask it in Jesus name Amen Man thank you yes so we can't we we. There's just so much going on right now. It really is. It's overwhelming it's I mean just everything is is just crazy It wherever you fall not you job at wherever listener falls on the timeline of events where you might be a well ahead of us in terms of things are. You're you're pretty much in the future if you will or you might not see what we're seeing yet. They're wherever we are. We have very little control of of being the financial bubble. The financial burden of layoffs The stock market. You know savings and all that We have very little control of our physical health as much as we try to stay healthy and wash your hands and sanitize we at the end of the day. We're still prone to disease and virus and contamination We have very little to control of what our neighbor does. We might be doing everything but our neighbor might not be doing anything. So where there's just a lot of uncertainty right now but what there's one thing that is certain And you know what that? It's Jesus Christ so listener. If you I'm asking one thing for me right now listen to the rest of this podcast with an open mind. Don't resist a prompt of your heart. If some if something is stirring inside of you right now acknowledge it be. Oh present to what's going on right now in your life because I know I've had a I've had plenty of time to reassess my life As the not just from a spiritual side but from a community From a communal standpoint. What am I doing with my neighborhood when my doing in our church. What am I doing with my family? We really all do. We really need to be doing what we're doing when all this all the dust settles. How are we going to be different? So please take this these next few moments with an open mind. Ask yourself these questions of what if it gets worse. What if I am faced with death in my in my near future? These are legitimate questions that I don't. I don't WanNA bring all this up to to scare you but these are things. These are hard questions. These are hard situations that ultimately going to have to face if not now definitely down the road because death is inevitable so joe and now. I know as a from a pass three. I'm sure you hear this all the time. Where God yeah? Yeah No. That's a really hard question. It's it's the right question ask I think. I don't think God's afraid a for us to ask the question for your listeners. No matter whether Atta I think I guarantee that's on their mind and even people in the church pastors and where whereas got so. I think that I think one of the things I could start with. Is this while it's Novel to US this idea of an intense pandemic or a a pandemic Emergency is not new to human history. We could go to for example justinian plague where thousands of people were dying every day back just shortly after the death of Christ and then we had the black plague that killed fifty million people in Europe literally. Half of the half of the population in Europe was wiped out at the tune of about ten thousand people a day. Dying so the ebb and flow of history. That Great Depression were one World War Two we. We've seen this ebb and flow where people in the most intense times of suffering the head. Probably that question. It's just for our time. This is the pandemic of our time. What what in the world is going on and it feels new like we never been there because we happen in the grand scope of human history. It's it's not new so I guess I would start with this idea that that they're caught with us. So let me just start with a very hopeful tune a tone here and let me just say I will never leave you. I will never forsake you. That he who began a good work in the day of Christ Jesus Philippians one six will complete until the day of Christ. Jesus God's will the world that he gave His only begotten Son. All those things are true. It's just as the death factor gets in front of us we. We are faced with the reality of death. It's always been there and so we're asking the question. Oh my gosh where am I would death? And on the other side of death and before death and now that it's right in our face we're having to ask these questions And I would say that God is with us. He will never leave us in war forsakes. We believe that all things work together for good for those who love God for those who are called according to his purpose and one of the things that maybe we'll get into here and a little bit I I don't WanNa stretch at answer out to all. I just WanNa say that That he's doing a work in and through this. This is not something that got said. So where's God? This is not God going. Oh my gosh look it's Kovic. Nineteen what am I GONNA do? God is sovereign. He owns everything he is not the author or the Creator of disease but he is sovereign over..

Do things to help yourself to keep. Everyone protected that might be as simple as you know going out in the backyard and pay seen walking it off. It might be as simple as putting yourself in a different room taking some time. It might be saying something to yourself like this will pass I. I'm GONNA manage this in a way. That's values fades instead of in a way that's control based so practicing and patience kindness or going to be. I think very important in this time for folks and feel temperamentally Challenged by being put in spaces of people where you're not able to move around as much as you might move around early. We're talking about alcohol as well. In terms of sleep habits for one thing alcohol impacts sleeps. But I'm also thinking in terms of just maintaining peace in the household. I think that just kind of watching your alcohol. Yes is important right now because I think a temptation of like. Oh we're all bored at homeless. Just surreal day well and interestingly enough toilet. Paper sales have gone up and alcohol sales company so people are making run on alcohol because they are gonna they know they're gonna be at home maybe dealing with ornaments and this is where we can talk about some of the acts things that people can do therapy things that people can do the Cuba. That's right like really watch how much you're drinking. This isn't a time to consume more time to consume less both pitchers you'll be more controlling your behavior less likely to harm others and also because it will help you sleep better and make you think of caffeine as well. Watch your caffeine intake. Sometimes people are nervous. Interestingly enough they drink mark Kathy nor when they're in District product product potter. You know they don't be thoughtful about how much you're much caffeine. You're putting in your body next size right like keep exercising and one of the things that if you read our California's shelter in place like it's right in their mandate like you know. Stay home you can go outside to exercise. And I think that's very important and I'm so happy to see it pretends announced the keep your body moving and don't let yourself get sedentary during this time even though you closed in if you need inspiration you can check out our last episode. Which was with Kelly mcgonagall on the joy of movement and she has some creative ideas for just moving mark as it is. It's really tempting to just sit around and watch TV right now and it's okay fine but you also it'd be really good for you to move a little bit. Get Out and walk your dog that kind of thing so these. These are really helpful practical tips for here now. Everybody making it through this safely. I also think about our ongoing coping as this continues in the months of head ahead and it does come to mind to think that psychological flexibility acceptance and commitment therapy has a lot to offer. I know people are just really facing a lot of emotions all over the place you know. Just extreme fear panic loss really personally. I'm sitting a lot with the sadness right. Now of. What's what's what we're facing in terms of losing people potentially and also just other aspects of our lives that were kind of missing out on right now Do you have any thoughts? Robin about how that model can be helpful to people in the longer term emotional absolutely well so no it got present moment processes that. I think can be so helpful his in this time of crisis people. Are you know worrying about what's going to happen next and really spending a lot of time in going to happen to me? What's going to happen to my family. What's GonNa Happen to my finances right? So there's a lot of worry it's very oriented towards the future and so hard what that does though is of course it takes us out of what's happening right here now and even in a time of crisis. I think being present to your coming back to yourself and be very helpful. I'll give a quick example. I was working with a client who was really experiencing a lot of almost terror. About what was what's unfolding there in a hot spot there you know. In one of the places where the corona virus is just taking off their family may have been exposed and so the personal dislike really feeling. Berry scared about what could potentially unfold for themselves in their in their family and We did a just as mealy Present moment grounding getting in touch with openness to her where she was feeling the fear which was largely inner chest where she what she was noticing in terms of attention and Roddy she disappeared persons. Were for a little bit on spirituality and feeling a Hersal spirit distressed again to replace x opened to the moment was very helpful for her She was able to sort of drop from her mind. Which was just buzzing. You're worried about what's going to happen Ish. Are they going to live and be okay into? I'm alive now. My heart is beating. Now I'm breathing now. I'm not dying in this Mama and The world isn't in this moment harming me I'm alive and my family's alive and that sort of presence was very helpful and I think that we can all work on practicing listings. If we get hot here is dropping into the present moment and noticing that were alive now and it's not a panacea. I'm not saying this is GonNa be the answer to all of the problems that people are entering now clearly. That's not the case. But if you're really finding yourself starting with worry and fear coming into a centered. Presents itself can be very useful experience to connect to think connecting to your values. There's going to be really important to reminding yourself of what you care about. Indeed that kind of intense fear points to what's important. Us We're worrying fearful. It's telling us that we care about our families and friends and ourselves. We're GONNA be okay and to sort of see if we can let ourselves oriented to the value and not driven by. The fear can quite useful for people as long term coping strategy and so practicing every day. Even for a few moments in your mind is going to say. I don't have time and worrying about this. I don't WanNa do this and really taking the time to anyway. I reject into a matter most about calling. I mean be interesting if each day. We like what? What am I better? Angels Want Me To do. Today I loved I just remember. You're better angels. When Times get tough? I think that's helpful. And and just having that sense of mindful awareness and openness to all of this to me those moments when I feel that sadness surrounded I think all I can do is just let myself feel that for a while and then you know and then I go on about my day but it's like this is just a hard thing and there's no way around it and I think it's there is that room to just have awareness and an acceptance of it and just keep doing putting one foot in front of the next two to do those things that feel like our better angels solves would want us to do. I'm just thinking about you know. County bring compassion into these places. When we're.

"I'm welcoming back on the PODCAST. Dr Robin Walzer. Robin I head and planning for the last couple of months to do an interview about existential ISM. But we've decided to hold off on that we're going to revisit that in a future episode together because instead it just felt really important for us to shift a little bit and talk about more specifically what it means to be alive right now during this really challenging time with the corona virus so on behalf of my co host Robin I wanted to thank you for coming on and sharing your wisdom. I think we really need to hear from some compassionate and thoughtful voices right now so thank you so much for being here. It's my pleasure Debbie. Thank you for inviting me. Back to psychologists OCTA. Well we were just sharing with each other that in some ways this feels like one small values driven thing that we can both do right now. People right now are facing a lot of challenges and thinking about questions about what can I do? What's meaningful how can I help Yano? I was thinking about our existential top versus what we've shifted to and and so in thinking about that. Shit I was reflecting back on something that Barack Obama said he called on our better angels to make a better nation. And I think I'd like to invoke that same Saying Colin our better angels to make the world at this time in this very scary and uncertain time when we thought we might start on a hopeful note in this scary in an uncertain time because we are seeing a lot of humanity in all aspects rate and. I think one of the things that we're seeing is some pro social things happening. We're seeing people who are thinking about the greater good. It's not all hope out there at the moment. Obviously but there are there. It is a mixed bag. Well I'm so pleased to see people doing things that are a values based in about crow social and kind behavior inside pine myself in this sort of strange balance weird surreal space votes seeing good and also in recognizing and acknowledging the the really awful emits unfolding with the Crown Heights. It's interesting because they think we're facing so many ethical decisions globally and also individually and. I think that one of the things that we're doing is trying to pieces together. How much are we willing to do to help save others? What are the small day to day behaviors that we can do and your dear friend and colleague Steven Hayes just came out with a blog. Post that I wanted to quote from. Because he he goes on to talk about some small things we can do to help people and to help the healthcare workers in the on the front lines things like just being more diligent about washing our hands and not teaching our faces and some of the social distancing and I just love this quote. Imagine that Your Life Right now is a movie or novel is a story about an ordinary hero. You every action is being filmed or written down in this story. The fate of person's loved ones depends on the mundane choices. He or she makes moment by moment day by day in a sense. The hero is writing this story. I think it's a fantastic. And when I think about what he's saying is pointing to you now counting on our better angels and turning to our better angels than you and I were talking about the different ways that we can do this in this moment of crisis and so did the challenges of making certain kinds of decisions Do we pay the people who provide services for us and you know? Do we continue to Engage in things. That are supportive of people that we know have less than ourselves and For instance you brought up the idea of paying your hairdresser and I'm GonNa follow suit because I have a hair appointment coming soon and I'm not going to keep the appointment but I I am in a position hopefully for a long period of time. We'll we'll see how things go but currently in the position to go ahead and pay her For these folks are not going to be able to. You know how any work during this next period of time. That's right. How can can people come together to help support? Those whose whose livelihood is at stake as well yes absolutely. Although we were joking both of us I was pretty funny about you. Know who's in however we get. It actually looks racist. It's over right not being able to our hair that thing right. We'll discover how much gray we really have underneath. All that hair dye You know it's such A. It's we take these things for granted just as a reminder of how quickly things can change important it is to a call on our better angels during these times and you know even small things I agree with you like our. Our clinic is closed to in person. Services are bay area turmeric every clinic and more holding services online now as many Psychotherapists are doing and But the community of that clinic of students is now well. We don't get to see each other. They they hang out together in the clinic and get support from each other and talk to each other and so in just a recent online meeting with them. We decided to come together and have a little wine arts and Crafts Party. And then we're going to create some mindfulness sessions and host online for any of our clients to listen to and we're just brainstorming about little things that we can do to support each other and support our clients during this time. And I I guess what I'm asking is for as people think about their better angels like. What are the small things that we can do that? Maybe seem like they don't matter in the face of such a giant challenge but actually do matter are very important in how we face retaliating and I love seeing all this flexible thinking and people being really creative about how we can come together how we can support. You know parents and grandparents how we can help. Each Other. Help are children during this time. I think people are doing this in unique ways now agreed. I mean you know getting online and saying hello I mean I even. I don't know how much we can do this. We're still a little bit unsure about how the virus is spread in all the ways that it spread. But I would contemplating whether we're GONNA see regular mail up again. Finally he believes pending letters to each other I don't know if it's hoped not check it out before you do something like that but it is something that occurred to me. And there's a little bit of a sweetness in it or maybe Once the right word sentimentality. You know my co host. Diana passed on the idea to me to enlist the grandparents in teaching something to the kids. So they can prepare something and get online and do a little mini teaching or curriculum or something that it's a win win win right because it gives the grandparents something fun and purposeful to do the kids. Learn something of just watching. Tv as my children are right at this very moment. He gives the parents a little breathing room to have a little bit of time. So it's I think these kind of ideas are really just creative and and hopeful in themselves. Yeah I suppose when I think about our existence where we were originally starting Is that you know. Jess is a A wakeup call in many ways. You know like you can see people reacting with a lot of fear and worry and Wondering about their family members. What's going to happen to them to themselves and early members financially and these I think are very valid in terms of the uncertainty. And what's GONNA unfold in the future but I don't think it has to take over and I don't think it has we have to be driven by Wigan acknowledged these years men make every day choices that are about both practical leans taking care of your family and making sure people are saying but also very values based things out on giving raises are saying lobbying in ways that you can and Supporting human kindness. We've gone through this crisis. Absolutely one of the things that I was thinking about in terms out bitter angels versus not is when we're in these kinds of scary times. People can be driven by fear constantly. Example of that where you know people are making runs on toilet paper. My brother was telling me that he had driven by at garage. Door was opened. Someone was hauling goods in and out in their toilet paper was stacked from almost lurches sealing the purchased so much and You know people are afraid and like why else would you be racing to the store to buy it for innovation that we've seen? I mean it's understandable. That people are doing that and sucking on dry goods. I I don't want to put that down but I also do wonder about the fights that have broken out over such things and I know that guards have been placed in front of the toilet paper aisle and you know stores haggard limitations on things. This is just an example. I mean there's plenty of other things I think are here as well And I'm hoping that we can.

"This week's episode is a little bit different. Were pausing some of the episodes that we had scheduled to talk about the current events. There's so much going on with the Corona Virus Cove in nineteen. We know everyone's really finding this period to be stressful. And we think it's really important to offer our listener. Some strategies for coping with the emotional aspects of `send and we've invited back on the podcast Dr Robin Walzer. Who's a frequent guest? I think this is her fourth appearance if I'm counting right. She's the author of several books. Her most recent is called the heart of act developing a flexible process based in client center practice using acceptance commitment. Therapy Robin is a true master of acceptance and commitment therapy. She's also an expert on trauma and PTSD and we just love her thoughtful compassionate voice. We thought she'd be a real comfort for us to talk to right at this current moment as we hope you feel that way about listening to the podcast absolutely and I know originally W and Robin. We're GONNA talk about a big picture. concept of existentialism and her writings on that. And you shift gears a little bit because it felt important right now to talk about the reality of the trauma that we're in right now the here and now. I'm curious Debbie. How are you taking refuge during during this time? Are you hold on while I think as we talk about in the episode? I think my focus is just on the immediate. What's right in front of me? You know? I have definitely like most people been on an emotional roller coaster ride and just feeling so much sadness and fear and then I think most the time I'm just figuring okay. What do I need to do today you know? Do we have what we have to eat? How are we going to stay safe? And I think that's where a lot of people are right now. It's just about getting through this period. How about you Diana Yeah? It's it's been interesting. I've noticed sort of this shift of of emotions early on I would say maybe two weeks ago or we can have half ago. I was in complete stress. Response at my physiology was through the roof. I could not sleep. I was so red I was going about trying to like purchase things and make sure that we had for me. My system went to. I need to make sure that we have enough food. And and then it sort of shifted into actually appreciation of my family and the slowness and seeing the beauty and things and feeling connected and then shifted into a spare and when figuring out about all of this is that work kinda complex and there's a lot of different emotions that can can happen even coexist with Ns at a time and that. It's okay for all those. All emotions are welcome. One of the the resources that I've been turning a lot too is the children and if you just look at the title of Her Books. There's a reason why we turned so. She has the book comfortable with uncertainty another book welcoming the unwelcome in other book when things fall apart and then the wisdom of no escape which. I think is particularly appropriate right. Now we're all kind of holed up in our homes and what she really offers us as these ideas around. What do we do and things fall? Feel like they're falling apart. Where where do we turn to and some of it is some of this? Is the basics of getting food having routine making sure that you're going about the basics getting through the day right. I think there's some interesting research about trauma in the immediate aftermath or right during traumatic events and therapists used to try to swoop in to a big disaster or crisis and help people process things on an emotional level and replay trauma now. Kind of thing. What they've learned through the research is that actually in those moments people just need comfort safety. They need you to just sit there with them. Get them a blanket. You know hot beverage something like that and I think that's kind of how it's feeling to me right now is that were right in this. Were right in it right now and. I think it's right at this moment. What we need are these things that are going to give us refuge. That are going to give us a feeling of safety. Just may get through the period So thinking about that for yourself. What brings you in. Maybe it's even like a favourite TV show just to distract with. We've been watching some find like cooking shows just to get our mind off of things for a bit on or favorite. Yoga class that you can attend or even just getting outside and having a moment of of seeing a little bit of spring picking up you know I say the episode and I just want to repeat that. Go easy on yourself. Find things that don't feel like another thing. You're trying to put more pressure on yourself right now. It should really be something that you enjoy because they think sometimes you have to have structure after this after that and it's like just make it through you know well it's been interesting. 'cause y'all and I are going to do an episode next week about parenting during this time and initially again there. Was this big respond to this. Big Push of homeschooling and we all need to get our curriculum on board making art projects. And you know and W and I sort of our group or text each other and we're like Michael School of watch a show fight with your brother and crawl back into bed because you are so bored. Yeah well I think act is Just a tap into some of the prophecies of act that you may find particularly helpful right now. This is a great time. Think about more of the extent space strategies to act offers us and of the three that really come to mind are looking at sort of our self in in context ourselves in relationship to a bigger hole and looking at mindfulness and how to get present in in the present moment and just tending to the here and now and then finally this practice of acceptance of exceptions with our body acceptance their mind and really holding info things maybe lightly for ourselves. That's W I thought it'd be held for you to talk a little bit about sophist contexts. Because that's sort of the. The process often gets left behind. Not talked about could be helpful right now. One of the things that we were talking about. Is this idea of kind of zooming out. I think for me and probably a lot of this event has caused a massive perspective shift. I think I was so caught up in my day to day problems. That was really had a lot of stressful things going on in my own life the last couple of months and as soon as this happened it just sort of reoriented me and I think one thing that can be helpful as to zoom out until look at your life sort of as a whole that we have these ups and downs over the course of time if you think about your entire life span and we're in down right now and I think that sometimes when we're a period like that where we're suffering we it almost feels like it's never gonNA end. This is how it's going to be forever and I think there is something about shifting perspectives to recognize okay. This is a tough period. I've had periods before. I'll have them again. It's not going to be like this forever. I think it does help to shift things almost looking at your life as this big long timeline and here we are in this moment for now but it's not going to be like this forever that zoom out to even thinking about times or situations that you have survived that looking back at them you like. Wow how did I do that? That didn't seem survivable. And that can string the NAS as well to to see ourselves as moving through this flow of life that is is really unpredictable and there will be times in the future that are painful as well and maybe we can appreciate for ourselves. The the strengths that we have developed over the course of these these ups and downs Growth happens in in this time during during these times when it's really people and hard and the acceptance piece just as as kind of a reminder for folks is really about accepting the full range of emotions that you're having right now like so many of us are feeling afraid. We're feeling sad. Were worried we have major emotions happening. And that is that is okay to feel that it's it's human I think with acceptance as well that the taking physical stance of except with our bodies can be really helpful so I just been noticing. My nervous system is on like brace mode where like ten stop. My jaws tighten shoulders tight. My belly is tight like everything in my body. And then I'm just like rushing around and part of taking a bottom up approach as opposed to a top down approach with acceptance so rather than cognitively accepting we can also accept with our bodies we can slower breath. Slow are breath down. Have a long exhale release her shoulders. Relax our face and take an open accepting stance with our with. Our fiscal switch can be helpful in telling our brain connection. Yeah and Robin also talks in the episode about just that present moment focus again. Just I'm okay now. I'm here now just sort of bringing it back to the moment during those times. When you're just the worry takes you down the road to the future and it's easy to get swept away by bad just to go back to reorienting to this moment in time. You might have to do that frequently. I think that people with substance use issues or people with eating disorders can be really difficult right now because there can be a tendency to not have as much structure and have high levels of stress and also be really exposed to some of the triggers that can trigger your addiction or your struggle. And that's where self care and community connection online connection finding meetings And also setting up your environment in a way that make it as healthy possible for you is really important right now. I noticed you know at least in our household were. We're all struggling to. We're losing our tempers with each other It's it's not the prettiest seen over here when we're all stressed out and cooped up. I know it's true. Every little thing starts to get magnified as a reminder to many therapists are offering video sessions right now so if this is the case for you and you could use extra support. go online and find a therapist who can do a video session for this time being because you know it is available an meetings and NA meetings are online there's a lot of eating disorder programming that is now online and virtual while so. This is the time to turn to that. Please do take care of yourself. And we're going to post some resources on our website and the show notes for all of you to look into Doctor Andrea Byrne bomb at Ucla has developed a wonderful resource with lists of reading and information for all of you that will post and W I know you have some resources as well. We have a few resources actually found something really wonderful that. Tara more whenever guests posted about handling tension and anger in the household which I think is an issue that Robin talks about. It's important we have a few other helpful resources for you. So check out our web page off the PSYCH DOT COM and. We hope you enjoyed this episode and the wisdom and compassion.
COVID-19: The Wildlife Trade and Human Disease
"In early March. The Prime Minister of Vietnam directed the government there to draft a directive to prohibit wildlife trade and consumption to be submitted to him by April first in February China took similar actions to find out more about the wildlife trade and its relationship to the current corona virus outbreak. I called Christian Walser. He's the executive director of Global Health at the Wildlife Conservation Society. We both live in the Bronx but do to. The current situation spoke by phone. Tell me about The situation Vietnam where the wildlife Outdoor MARKETS OR WILDLIFE MARKETS FOR FOOD. Consumption are Apparently going to be banned. And what's the situation elsewhere? Where such markets have traditionally existed? Yes so these markets which really very unique even on a global scale just by sheer size and diversity of species which are traded. These markets have already been banned beginning of February In China so there's been opponent ban on any kind of wildlife trade be it for consumption medicine purposes Even for furs any any kind of wildlife product is prohibited that moment the movement trade sale and consumption is temporarily banned and China's moved on to now permanently banned any wildlife trade and related with consumption. So that was the big first step and The working on legislation right now to get that lockdown so to say and then Vietnam just followed on a few days ago with a statement that it will similarly close down markets and the trade wildlife related to consumption and we do assume that it will be a knock-on effect on on the bordering countries like Laos and Cambodia and what is the problem with these markets. Why are we so concerned about them? So these mark some just a quick picture so you can imagine what looked like. It is a Areas where A large number of different species from wraps different species of field. What they call field rats in Southeast Asia's Liza Lodger rat species Which they which they capture and breed on farms together with bats. Squirrels Porcupines You know now than illegal even pangolins illegal primates and then all that is mixed together with domestic livestock. So we have a lot of poultry. There you will have on pigs and then of course you have a lot of humans. And by putting all these species together and They're also additionally extremely stress. They've been captured. Many of them been captured in the wild are in terrible conditions holding conditions so very stressed in shutting viruses Able to excrete these viruses imaginaire stacked on top of each other. So you will have home. Let's say some squirrels excreting virus which will drop down onto a porcupine below them in porcupine may be above some chickens and so on so you have a great possibility for the exchange of virus Enviro components and then you have the whole process of preparing the food. So you're actually in the same place where you're basically creating the environment for new viruses. You're also going to be slaughtering. So you'll have blood being mixed you will be handing off to humans who will be in direct contact with the excrements with blood postgame. Then we'll take that product home so it is really really couldn't design a spillover interface in any better way this. So this is the main concern. Lodged diversity species is obviously unknown viruses. Which they naturally host being mixed together on the small tight area basically and you use the word spillover. That has a particular meaning in this context. Right right spillover event Have to I think the best way to imagine his. You know each animal. is a container and within that container it carries an hosts viruses and bacteria on fungi. Which are do not cause it any homes and similarly we. It's humans we host viruses bacteria. Which Cause Anyhow? And as we move about carries with us in. It's one niece containers are able to share these viruses. So basically you get a virus moving from one container. Let's say some wildlife species moving into the container of the human and then sometimes and it's a rare event is viruses can actually move. Let's say from something. That looks very different. Porcupine definitely different than human move across into a human and actually get into a human cell and start to replicate and then on a much much rarer occurrence thankfully then transmitted from human to human. So it's quite an achievement for a virus so to say to actually manage to jump from one species to the and then actually be able to transmit within this new species but it sort of a slot machine with a lot of dials and every once in a while they all come up and you do get this event exactly. It's really a numbers game. And I think the way I I would say. These markets are just increasing. Your chance of of of winning substitute over losing in this case just by having a lot of species on every day of the year. You're actually stressing them so that you'll get more viral shedding and then you put in the humans in as well because consumption of course increases the interface because you As I said you're in contact with the blood you're ingesting it It's is really just a numbers game as I said.

"And we've special guest Rebecca Walser talking about her experience as an attorney. And she's going to be talking about her new book well on broken, which is the featured book today. Good morning, Rebecca. Josh. So for those not heard of your work, if you could describe your background, and what you would would lead you to write the book wealth unbroken? Absolutely love to. So my undergrad degree in finance, and I was in finance for many years a decade actually little over decades. I worked and banking in college or not I had a real job in college. But I you know, 'cause you're for years, and then I worked got my first with PriceWaterHouse Coopers PriceWaterHouse time, and to do basically international financial analysis and consulting and did that for five years. I want to work with IBM AT and T when they basically AT was fine. A piece of IBM was involved with that. And then I went to law school, basically. Yeah. Became a lawyer as university of Florida. And then I immediately went up near area to NYU to get my advanced specialization intact station. So then I practice tax off for a while and knew that I would not be able to just do tax law with my whole background in finance needed to basically open my own practice holistically and so five years ago. I opened my own practice sort of holistic practice of looking at wealth-building financial, financial perspective and attacked perspective. And so that's what we do now. And in two thousand seventeen I decided that, you know, this message that so many Americans are getting the wrong advice and just going down this this this one track of building wealth since the eighties as you're very aware and ninety two to get the message out more frequently than just meeting with one client at a time. And so the book came out late last year. Thousand eighteen and komo's unbroken and since then we just sort of been doing a lot of national platform publicity around the book trying to get as much awareness out as possible about the really the pitfalls. You know, the things that you cover Josh all the time in your practice and your shows about how people build well, and how most Americans really are on this pretext wealth kick, that's really going to come back and cause a lot of problems in heartaches future. No fantastic. We'll talk more about the pretexts hardy. But I'm sure a lot of our listeners of wanna know what led what was the transition like from going to being an attorney to being a financial planner advisor consultant would've you call it. What was? What led to that? Is there funny story, you know, you have those Tiffany moments, and I have had maybe three in my lifetime. This wasn't a fifty moment in my career. I was as attacked attorney at a client's office his his business. He ran his conference. It was very successful business. You don't eat attack attorney unless you're successful. So we're in his comments room, and he's sitting at the head, and I'm in the meeting, the tax lawyer, and his financial adviser is on the other side their attack deterrent as the, you know. I'm having heels on for the meeting and neither of USA gentleman knew my background in finance. You know, they had just they knew me at the tax lawyer. And so his financial advisor starts giving advice. And it was the absolute worst advice that I have ever possibly heard come out of his mouth from attack perspective, but also financial perspective. And I'm literally got digging my heels into the carpet in this conference room and saying to myself just a tax lawyer, just attack tackle, you're just here tax. You know, and I heard myself answer back, but you're not, you know, you're not just attack attorney. And I knew in that moment that I would have to have my practice and the transition into my own practice has been pretty easy actually because I mean, you're an advocate. You know, you are there to argue and and frighten clients position every single down to the to the degree, you know, and you'd never give up. It says practice and Oshkosh deal and my practice, more holistically and financial wealth management. It is a holistic practice with a specialization impacts. And it's been a very easy. It was actually harder for me to just be a lawyer. No, that's great wealth on broken, Rebecca Walser of wealth management adviser. Who wrote a book, I I met you. I don't know one. We maybe five years ago wasn't. And she certainly dynamo talking about the pre tax problems that you may be experiencing in your four one K in your IRA. So let's jump into the book wealth on broken. So you talk about this pretax theory that that really undergirds much of what we hear about on from talking heads on TV and radio someone you wrote a book sort of exposing those money myth. But for for those who maybe never heard that their four one K R A was a problem. What led you to that of conclusion or could LeBron? Yeah. Absolutely. We have to go back to really we have to go back. Future back in time to figure out what the heck happened to get us to where we are. And so we go back, and I'll just give you some some history really quickly. The four one K was written in the revenue act of seventy eight and for your listeners that don't know a lot of very educated because they listen to you. But you know, the one 4._0._1._K was really essentially written to be a corporate tax dodge for highly compensated executives, and that is a specialized term in the tax fall highly compensated executives, they use it in many, different instances. So there are rules are written around of highly compensated people, and this was meant to be a tax legal tax dodge for highly competent executive to basically give them a fissionable bonus plan on top of the pension. You've to remember in the seventies. We really were a pension based, you know, country. We didn't have this. Do it yourself type of planning. So nobody can if you're younger your millennial. You certainly don't understand America where you're really worked at a company for thirty years. Retired got the gold watch they pay for the record life until death. That's how it used to be in the seventies. And so what happened was you have these people these corporations who fighting over really highly compensated talent. And they said, hey, we need to give them an extra something we need something more and someone someone came up the ideal. Hey, why don't we pay pay more towards retirement, if they basically, but we we will give them a bonus. But it has to go in the special counsel and has to vast over time, and they can't touch it. But then you know, that we don't want them to pay taxes on it because they're not going to be what we call phantom income tax coach. And so they said, yeah, yeah. Yeah. They can't won't pay the taxes on it until they get the money. They won't get the money until retirement. So the 4._0._1._K provision was written in that vague. Well, nineteen Eighty-one of kind of fluky event. It was rolled out really everybody. And if you go back to look at the tax code our top marginal. Oh rate and eighty one seventy percent, very high. This is before Reagan's reforms that went to eighty seven so was very very high. And you had a lot of Americans feeling like God taxes are just way too much. And so all of a sudden is plan gets rolled out. That's voluntary. That says, hey, if you want to take some portion of your income up to a limit and put it over into this retirement account yourself, then we won't catch you on it currently, and you can let it sit there and build up over time. And you know, you get taxed on it. When you retire and people thought, jeez. And then they started this conventional financial wisdom saying, and when you retire they add is little lying when you retire. You should pay taxes because you'll be making less because your pay you're paying these high taxes, you're in your Pekar near earning years. And when you retire you'll be making less therefore, you'll pay less tax, and because our taxes are so high eighty one got rolled out everybody people signed up into rows. Then ESO's got oh look at this. And it was like the light bulb went off. They rushed into the CEO's office. And they tell the 'cause you know, at this means we can shift retirement plan from define benefit, which is the pension defined benefit will pay millions of dollars a year into the system as long as they were finding under-funding was not a problem, but it was fun. It will pay millions and millions of dollars Dave responsible for the actual retirement plan and the pension payments for the rest of all of these employees live, even after they retired. It was a massive cost and all of the risk and responsibility was on the corporate shoulder. And so the CFO COO and said this is Jean Hess. We can put the responsibility on the employees. It's voluntary either it or they don't the people that don't do it. We don't have to contribute anything and for the people that do we can contribute some small percentage of what they're putting in. Then what we're doing now the defined benefit and so companies which to define contribution, which is the 4._0._1._K in Giro's and employs loved it. Because they were deferring in not paying the task. And Amir got this rush and its high of not paying the taxes and deferring taxes. And so we got this kind of ingrained into us that many of the nineties to where people were excited they could turn their. Thousand two hundred thousand I remember, I always had a distrust for this growing up because I saw this happen to my father in the eighties nineties. He worked for a Bank for years and years, and they had a pension and then they transferred that obligation to a 4._0._1._K were an IRA with a no load company. They were even head of their time. Wow. And he put all of his money in index funds. And because he read some article, and then bam. You know, lost fifty percent of everything he had. Of medical vents had him liquidate it, and basically he had no pension, and you know. There are millions of middle America listeners people that may be listening right now is a man I wish pension, and you can still set up pensions. Now, by the way, folks. Let's talk more about this with Rebecca Walser talking about her book wealth unbroken, excellent history lesson on the 4._0._1._K. We'll talk a little bit more about that. But it was sort of like the perfect setup CFO CEO's, and then you had the nineties so people didn't really feel a lot of the the market the market effects on their wealth until about two thousand two thousand do by that time it was too late. So folks have you have a question for Rebecca Walser and her book wealth unbroken, call us now? Eight eight hundred three to one zero seven ten gets you on live with his right now. Eight hundred three to one zero seven ten and call us for her book..
Torture report shows progress in Afghanistan, but much more needed
"We'll have to be some measures taken by the government to address torture. We are seeing some Pennzoil impacts of the steps taken by the government over the last two years. But while it's good to see that. There's some progress the oval big as will torture and treatment of conflict related detainees. Still disturbingly high in the sense that one insert sorry to interrupt. But in the sense that one in three detainees six hundred plus detainees who you? Nominate contacted the UN mission in Afghanistan. One in three say, they tortured in what way would they tortured, please they were tortured principally by beachings mainly by eating with hikes in payables, including on the feet, which is very painful, but doesn't leave any mocks now in some pick your location, they were all other forms of kickback even more serious including with. Electric shocks is expensive from ceilings very hot to stress positions for extended. Periods of time. Pulling genitals reported threats of death and other forms of sexual violence. And also, a very common form in particular. Locations in panda included being suffocated, eighty the tactic digested ahead or your Walser for throats, and one common form was be covered by a blanket people sitting on Thursday and back and being also maintains except potatoes, especially the okay, so that sounds absolutely horrific. And yet, you NAMA is saying along with the office of the high commission of human rights that this is an improvement since the last report, which I think was in two thousand sixteen and do you? I started reporting on this in two thousand ten in the previous record. And if report it quite right thing debut stock and plenty time. Time is actually being some improvement in that it's disturbing wanting three and keep the down. However from thirty nine percent four out of ten in the previous two years ago. And the that in in twenty eighty there was some progress in the among those into twenty eighteen twenty seven to say because the real treatment. So yeah, I think how headline is that some progress is very long way to go. There was also at the normative and the negatives. If no in that in twenty eighteen Afghanistan exceeded the optional protocol eventually they'd still and that these why because today seventeenth today because one year since the optional protocol was exceeded to near encouraging Afghanistan too. Establish a national preventive mechanism as they're required to do. So can I just jump in Richard just to us? What is the state's ability and capacity to actually help improve this, obviously, there's a willingness to do. So, but how capable is it of actually achieving what it needs to? Yeah. All post anti-drug commissioned nationally ups yet eight legislative began store Jerry metro check, nor so they became being Orage taking some sticks at a high level it needs to do more. And they have been training have been establishment of mechanisms you've been the key agencies responsible for torture, including bagels and ESPN. She's been candidates agency, the police and the military, so they're awesome steps in the right direction to develop capacity, we have found however that what we call key procedural and other legal safeguards that'd be Parke's often failing to uphold them lose, for example, access to lawyers. I contacted the family medical screen and information of rights for detainees as well. Proper investigations to follow up when are complaints. Go turn treatment buying the perpetrators held to account or if they are the measures. They can be such serious such an serious crime, very light. And that victims are really told about progress or up of cases, which remain mainly opaque. Can I also just ask and sorta to interrupt about accountability? Because it doesn't sound like what it was certainly one of the features of the report and High Commissioner of human rights. Michelle Bachelet said there must be accountability. Otherwise, this kind of thing will never stop. But that's not particularly new messages it. So what are your main hopes having released this fifth report? A main hopes that the commitments made the normal given negative level internationally domestically actually in. Lamented in practice 'cause you're not seen enough of that yet. We we have seen some signs of accountability. Would apparently Trump people removed from positions, according to the government response to the report, but be seeing very little if any serious investigations or prosecutions still carry now a crime in this country, but many fits me to take him on accountability. At the criminal Justice never would also found that nearly all of the Chinese the report for chapter saying that the total ill-treatment stops. Once they confessed. And this kind of culture is very concerning. Confessions obtained done before share essentially worthless. And they are illegally excluded as evidence in court. And so that is another thing. Yeah. Much change needs to take place needed to use torture to obtain a confession do. Those who are perpetrating these abuses actually realized that is it a case of educating everyone in detention centers that it just went hold water in a court of law. It connected, and I think you're right -education training are absolutely necessary. That has been among standing practice of using torture to the pain confessions, and I think that making that issues unacceptable amigo country to the penal code. They have better results. I think we are starting to see better results in twenty eighteen particularly with the intelligence of the NBS and note that they have new UCF introduced better training and policies on torture. Yeah.
