"But the wheels fell off that clan. And you know that's about as close as we can get to our own california here. Well hey i went from c. Sky like this afternoon right. But what more can you want. So how long has the High mountain brewing been here and What what do you focus on. Well this is a really big group up. I don't know how many other brewpubs are larger than this. I think mission springs seats. Eight hundred people and i think there's a couple that are in the group. Is this but this place seats like i think. At six hundred and fifty years seven hundred and two sides. There's a restaurant and pub upstairs on the other side. Yeah really patio which we're expanding this next year. But you know this place was built in ninety seven opening night seven. It has been like one of the most successful restaurants i think here in whistler and it is really like a machine when it is at full blown summer or full-blown ski season kind of thing. It is just churning out the products and in fact. It's the reason why we don't do any packaged product or any kegs or anything like that. And it's because this. This berry was only designed to serve beer in house fact on a really busy summer day. Not that we've really had that this year because of our reduced capacity but on a busy summer day i can look at the glass on the beer tank and actually see the volume of the beer moving in real time like a sundial. Like it's almost the shift i gotta go home. Yeah exactly and so. This is the reason why. I'm here is all weights and it's because i'm always concerned about having enough beer on tap here well which leads me to my next question. How big is that brew house. I mean we can see it from here like it's it's upstairs areas which is slightly odd You know the space reminds me a lot of friends of the podcast. Martin grew up in vernon only been there but only there on the main floor..

"Patty we know this is going to be a strange baseball season how about this eleven major leaguers won't be getting there twice a month paychecks during the sixteen game season that's because the two hundred eighty six thousand five hundred dollars in advance salary they received after opening day was postponed because of the pandemic is more than what they are owed from their pro rated salaries the group includes Dodgers pitchers Jimmy Nelson a Rashtra plane cubs pitcher Jharel cotton Atlanta pitcher ground Dayton pirates infielder Erik Gonzalez Royals pitcher Jesse Hahn Yankees reliever Jonathan holder Phillies catcher Andrew Knapp Boston pitcher Collin McHugh Milwaukee pitcher Freddy Peralta Minnesota pitcher Matt Whistler so they made their money now go out risk your health boys are Kevin Durant says he wouldn't do it he wouldn't go to Orlando to play for the nets when the NBA starts up on July thirtieth probably would've played because manages the unknown going into situations because you and months in some cases this is this is a sort or predictable so I mean it's easy for me to say right now because of injury but I'll probably would know it down to the end of the gastro safe safe enough to go players cool water with they don't feel like they should go down and play also saved what would have to do so more about what the group wants so he knows he's good for the for the betterment of the whole group that crew so but I'll probably to Canada ran since he wouldn't do it too good move sixteen players tested positive out of a pool of three hundred and two that's five percent Orlando is a hot spot with the virus the NBA will have to double down on their precautions at the Disney complex Adam silver says there is a tipping point that if there is an outbreak during the bubble they will have to stop play let's hope it doesn't come
Grandmas House Visits
"As I've mentioned before grandmother's. This house was the biggest house in Whistler. My following description of the house is intended not to Brag or Put on as as they say down south. It stood high off the ground as many homes in the south dead, and had wide steps, leading up to middle of the front porch, and into the main hallway, the porch ran linked to the front of the House with a wooden swing on the far right. This weighing Hong by small change was at the very end of the porch. This wing was part of our playground. Front doors I mentioned was in the middle of the house, and only the screen door was locked to keep babies from going out and get an end of the street. Entering the front door you found yourself facing long hallway with ten foot ceilings, and on the left side, stood an old wardrobe. No such thing as walk in closets in those days. From? That long hallway doors left and right led into the various rooms I only remember there were. Two rooms on the right and left, but many told me that there were three on each side plus the kitchen at the far end of the hallway and to the right door. Let into the sparse kitchen. And dining table, saying an icebox. Mada refrigerator not those days and not those prices. News, an icebox where you would have the iceman bring a block of in from the horse drawn wagon and place it into the top. My job was empty. The pan of melted water from underneath before it ran over, my idea was to avoid having to stop my important playing outside didn't go across very well with my grandmother. I simply suggested that I drew a hole in the floor underneath a refrigerator for drainage and save all that walking. Let them snakes house. She said ain't no way. The kitchen, there was a door that led out onto small. Porch one of the bedrooms happened to the amount of. I would go there and wonder. You see he had a hobby that influenced me for life. He built model airplanes and to this day. I'm sure the stuck in my mind. That is why I later became a pilot. Thanks Uncle Arthur. Let's get back to the front porch. Now are fun days. Where when only cousins came to visit grandmother, and that was mostly on weekends. We would cram many cousins into the swing as possible. And fareless Fred Wynn. Mount the back of the swain with his toes in between the wooden slats and holding onto the change, he would swing out. Away from the porch and backed his is. He could never quite reach the ceiling. By, the squeals, the kids. How much fun we were having. That is until an aunt. Or an uncle or grandma would put a stop to it. That swing is GonNa Bright One day. And break you Jawans Nex. I remember once this Wayne did break as my corpulent and and a friend set in it. She never went out with him again. I guess that was a sign from somewhere above. The Yard in front consisted of various plants and bushes. Flower Bush was as my grandmother called it five o'clock. As? She showed me the first time at five o'clock. The, flowers would close up for the night. Fascinating I'll tell you the day we almost died. My two cousins and I were playing in the front yard near themselves in Bush's. My cousin Barbara asked us the WanNa pull only in Manet, Sandwich. On white bread well, who, in turn that down soon came the long awaited sandwiches presented on a plate.

"Low travel nerds and welcome to the extra packing peanuts travel. Podcast we are coming at you today from our e Pop H. Q. The show that teaches you how to travel more. Well spend less except for staying at home. So we're here to give you a little bit of inspiration today. Talking about one of our favorite places and the place that has the brewery of which which travis sporting the hat from this brewery. So heather hates this hat. I don't know why I love it. she hates it. But we're going to British Columbia today with you and this hat is from a story in British Columbia right outside of Whistler Coast mountain represent so I figured she said tribe. Your hair looks awful. Go put on a hat. So this is what I hate that. Trav- your hair looks awful. Go put on ABC. Wait a minute make us on her. Might just relaying. What happened five minutes before play guy either way quarantines getting us? It's getting a lot of time spent together and you know we somewhat too much time. We're used to spending a lot of time together but court excuse me. Quarantine is a little bit of a different animal. I do not hate the hat. I hate this. You literally said I hate this head a little too flat for me but anyway regardless British Columbia and we love the breweries in British Columbia. Yes today this is part of our quarantine. Diaries session so you can watch us on. If you're watching it then you get to see that if you're listening on the podcast and you do want to see our faces our situation and see what had a might wear for the next one. You can go do our instagram at extra packing peanuts and check it out there. So these are shorter. Form unedited podcast. That we're putting in addition to a regular Tuesday longer form podcasts. So that you have more wanderlust more travel love in your ears during the quarantines as we all go a little bit stir quarantine that's like during the quarantine it is now. I think a proper now. I think it should be Catholic. Quarantine entreprenuering quarantine and so what we've been doing recently and what we're going to do today is our best of series and this is where we pick a destination today. British Columbia Heather has a few card down there. She mixes them up and then she asked us and we don't prep for this at all. What our best memories of this specific places so today. We're doing a whole province and it's GonNa be hard because we spent a lot of time in British Columbia and we've gone all around British Columbia. Obviously we spend a ton of time in Victoria. Think Hoover Islands part of British Columbia? Spending time in Vancouver. We've been up to whistler. We'd been out to the Okinawa Gin. So it's going to be hard to pick somewhere places but hey that's what happens. That's the tough job of being travel. Podcast SO WE HAVE DESTINATION. Diaries and we have one. I'm pretty sure on Vancouver so we don't have one. I think on the whole of British Columbia. So you'll be getting some new content here with this little mini series. And I guess we should just jump right in. Let's do it okay. The first card is oh how appropriate best during so. I've been thinking a lot about this. And she told me redoing British Columbia literary four minutes ago and there have been a lot of places that we've drank at Including Vancouver we one time. We're in Vancouver for twenty one days and I did twenty one breweries and twenty days and I was pregnant so I did zero breweries. I mean I went to them but yeah so and we've spent a lot of time in Victoria. And some great wineries out in the Okinawan and all but for me. I think it will come back to a beer. Coast Mountain honorable mention and because of the hat. Awesome little brewery up in squamish tackling games. Garmisch just south of whistler fun little place cool like everything wanting to bury small little joint. That heather actually stayed in the car because again. I think you're pregnant at that point and she took a nap. I just went in and had a little flight by myself. You know really neat. People could be the coast from the brewery. No but it's called coast to Coast Mountain. Which is also a weird name. My name like it's just a weird. You're just taking two words and putting them together but it works and I love the hat and I'd like to branding but my number one favorite. So it's not honorable mention. Okay right you told me that we could go longer than fifteen minutes. Because now we have a compressor so we can put it on. Igt No if you read our post from last week. But I had the hardest time trying to get our videos out because if you video over fifteen minutes you have to do it from your granddaughter and it has to be an MP anyway. It was a whole long saga. But I bought the software. Because what does one do? I mean we needed. We needed to get the videos to you. We needed to get the videos. You so then Heather told. I said we are GONNA be fifty minutes is going to be hard for British Columbia said. Oh no no we got we got the compressor we can do want so. My overall favorite drink is strathcona brewing in Vancouver for two reasons. One Strathcona brewing itself has really good beer. Super Cool brewery really hipster in in like a gentrifying neighborhood for sure but they also at the time we were there and I'm not sure if the guy still does this but there is a gypsy. Burr call who runs a Burri called superfly. Meaning he doesn't have his own brewery brews at Strathcona and comes up and bruised. They're apparently lives in a van. No joke down by a river and then comes up to strathcona debris here and there and this was two years ago so things could have could have changed this super flex beer is awesome so they sell super flex at Strathcona brewing and their beers incredible and then bring has their own beer and their beer is really good too so those my if you want the best drink we've had in British Columbia head to Strathcona brewing. Try and try to get your hands on superfly which you can get in grocery stores and convenience stores to
15 Years to a SaaS Exit (Plus Why Forecasting is Crucial)
"Matt wincing. Thanks so much for joining on the show again. Hey thanks for having me on again absolutely man so I talked in the intro about you. Growing risk pulse finding CEO. And selling it and I always ask people who've had these life changing exits. What was it like when you looked at your bank balance? You hit refresh and you see all those Zeros for the first time in your life. Yeah I think I think for me. It was a huge relief. Just because just the sheer number of years that I put into it. It was not a hey. Let's let's bet the summer on this. You know it was. It wasn't quite bet the farm. I didn't go that far like if it hadn't happened. Things would have been okay but you know I was very invested in. It adds it was. It was a huge relief to see that. Definitely as you said life life changing and you know obviously life improving but really just that peace of mind. You know that you don't have for sometimes very long startups indeed. It was a really long journey for you. Right it was was it fifteen years. Yeah I had the idea in two thousand and four side Yeah I. I went from idea. No four drawing little notes on posted on my lunch hour while on break is a software developer thinking. Hey you know steps one through four of starting startup. Let's do this fifteen years later. Congratulations man did you. I know all the listeners are thinking. Did you buy anything? Did you buy a Porsche to buy a house? I yes I did. I did a couple things. We've been postponing a great ski vacation. For a long time it happened in December. And guess what if it was time so it took the kids? Something I've been wanting to do for years was take the kids out of vacation. So we we last minute booked all. That didn't worry as much as you normally would about the last minute rates and went up to Whistler Canada and had had a great time with family invited family to come join us so that was great and I did have a you know inherited a car for my parents few years ago just because they didn't need it anymore and I was like okay. You know an extra commuter cars always helpful especially when it's paid off and was able to get rid of that and get a new vehicle show great very nice. You know. It's funny because when I was there's a podcast called the tropical NBA and Danny and talk about Entrepreneur Mobiles. And it's basically that she pieces that you drive while you're trying to build your company because they're not actually making much money so I drove a salvage title. Two thousand six Buick rendezvous at one point had a bunch of duct tape on the mirror got hit and I so I drove that up until a year after I sold trip. I like that car totally and and then the next car. It's a nice car. It's a Volvo. It's the nicest car I've ever owned. In fact it's I still bought it us though I could not. I couldn't bring myself to buy a new car but yeah that's funny I we. We had the two thousand five Toyota Sienna minivan which we put two hundred and fifteen thousand miles on as as a family and we replaced that with a you know a modest functional SUV. But then I had inherited a car for my parents that was An oath four and it worked. It was fine. It was it was exactly what you described. It was paid off and worked and got me from place to place but I tried it and I did get an off lease vehicles because again I wanNA to pay the depreciation but it's a lot more fun to drive once a scrappy founder always scrappy founder. That's Yup it's hard to change it so I wanna I wanNA ask you about a couple of things. One thing that you did. That was super interesting. Risk Pulse is build the SAS apt multiple seven figures. And then you replace yourself with a CEO and you moved on to start summit. Which will you know? We'll talk about towards the end of the interview that it's very. I say it's unusual. Most people don't go through that experience most people aren't able to find a CEO. It's not even on the radar of a lot of people. What was that process like? And why like why did you? Why did you take that step? Yeah it was. It was a process and I think it was the deciding that he was going to be. Ceo was definitely last step in a mental journey. That started with you know. We need a experienced enterprise sales executive to join the team and I had a recommendation from a board member which is a great example of how board members can be value. Add is helping you find top talents. And in this case he knew him professionally. They'd worked together before and you know with somebody that had significant experience building companies from the few million in revenue to the next phase so kind of the ten employees two hundred employees face which is a great fit for where we were and so. I I initially hired him to be chief strategy officer which is a fancy way of saying not quite sure what your title is going to be but I know that you have a lot of experience and we want to just get you involved in the first things. He did was really focused on sales and overhaul in the sales process is an enterprise. Sales processing had more even though I had more experience in the business of course. Because I've been doing it for years. He brought in that outside experience and revamped. Our sales process professionalized. It and that was kind of the word. It was really going through in professionalising each function in the in the company and after sales it was marketing and customer. Success and Finn OPS and kind of all down the list and then lastly would just kind of got to the point where you know. It wasn't that I didn't want to manage him. It was more you know what's in it for me. Like why? Why do I want to hold onto? Because it was clear that point that he could be. Ceo and that. I didn't need to be so it was kind of an either or and without any forcing from the board. I mean this was completely my idea. I said I'd never intended to run this company forever. That's not my that was not my identity and I think that's that was like the key decoupling that was already true in my mind and heart was like who. I am is not the CEO. Repulse it's the founder of response. Maybe a little bit more but you know the CEO to me was always a always a title. That could be changed at some point tonight. I always intended to change it at some point so it just became a natural transition to say. He's that person now announced to the board. The board was I mean if anything they were a little surprised at my willingness like it was almost like what you said if this doesn't usually happen and it isn't usually peaceful when it does happen but yeah I think that's a that that should be the goal of maybe more of us like a peaceful transition of of leadership and power. I mean that's that's kind of. It's kind of a an important tentative of well-functioned organization so I was happy to do it. And it just immediately freed me up to focus on just the things that I was world-class ads and still wanting to focus on and then ultimately wind myself out of the

How Can I Help? Loving the Friend Who Has a Child With Special Needs
"Back to another episode of Risen Motherhood Hud I'm Laura Whistler and I actually have three guests joining me today you guys. This is going to be such an awesome show. It's one that I've looked forward to for a very long time today. I have with me of course. My sister-in-law Emily and then I also have Abigail Dodds and Katie Blackburn. These women are just amazing women that have become friends to me in real life and it's just a pleasure to be able to have them on the show today so I'm going to actually have them start by going around introducing themselves so you can hopefully fully start to learn their voice a little bit and then also have them let you know how many kids they have in total as you guys know. Today is a special show so I will also have up them. Speak about any of their kids that do have special needs and how old child is and kind of just some of the things that they're dealing with so emily. Why don't you give start? Okay yes Jensen I feel like. I don't have to totally. Yeah I have five children ages. Seven twins ends at our five Four year old and a two year old and it is my four year old son who has special needs and he has a rare genetic mutation. Dan That's extremely small and has only been known about for a few years and so there's not a lot of helpfulness and sharing the exact specific civic diagnosis but basically as a four year old he has you know Af oh braces on his ankles that help give stability to walk. He's is a transport. Wheelchair wheelchair does not walk independently. Much away from a walker at all and then right now. He's just pretty much non verbal so we do a lot of texts communications nations for those of you who are listening. It's like robbing pictures. Some signs but Yeah overall is pretty pretty pretty healthy but definitely a a lot of communication and physical challenges. Abigail yeah I'm Abigail duds Married to Tom and we also have five kids. Our oldest is is fifteen and she just got her learner's permit for driving. So that's exciting. Then it goes. Yeah yeah that's a whole different. Yeah yeah show that you could do some day but it goes down to. We have a son who's thirteen and then a daughter who's eleven and another daughter who's nine and then our youngest son is the one with special needs. He's five he'll be six probably when this show releases and His special needs in some ways similar in terms of the diagnosis. Just that we don't really have a real definitive one and whatever it is is not one that has been Tracked before what it looks like for his day to day. Life has just means kind of global developmental delay slower to walk slower slower to talk but he does do both of those things a lot and he. He's got a feeding tube so some of the parts of of his brain that are small. Just make things like swallowing and sleeping difficult. So yeah and seizures seizure disorder. So that's another big part of his of his special needs Katie. Yeah I'm Katie Blackburn and I also have five kids I don't think we did is but My oldest is six and a half and then I have a five year old and he was diagnosed with autism. His Um to when Just after his second birthday and then we have a three and a half year old and we just welcomed our forth biological Kohl titled Less than two weeks ago. So he's just downstairs sleeping right now and then we have a foster baby right now. Who is is nine months old? And so that kind of that that rounds out our crew but Our five year old image and he has autism and he is just the joy of our lives but his his challenges are primarily in Social interactions and then in communication. He's not nonverbal. But I'm pretty limited so emily we use lots of PECs to know. Just what but those are and they've been amazing. They're lifesavers actually for a child that struggled with communication and he's getting better he's learning lots more words and lots more sentences We do a lot of the same things in our house. A lot of repeating A lot of scripting lot of eating the same aim kind of five or ten foods so our our home life definitely has a a repetitiveness to it to just kind of help him feel comfortable and and like A. He has a somewhat predictable. Life but he's he's such a joy. He loves the school bus. He loves his friends at school and he loves his siblings so we learn a lot from him and yeah. I'm excited to be here to talk to you guys about this really really great topic today. Awesome well thank you guys offer sharing and for anyone. Who is new here kind of like what Emily said? I feel like I shouldn't have necessarily introduce myself. But just if you're new and haven't heard motherhood podcast before I'm I'm Laura and I have three kids so I'm the one out I need to get on that. I have a six year old four year old and a two year old so my two year old is the one who has has special needs and she has also something that doctors have never seen before. She's we've been told she's kind of the only one in the world who has what she has so we don't really have a a good road map for what will be happening. But she has some extra genes in her chromosomes. So this displays itself off in the other women shared kind of global developmental delays. And Right now. She's a scooter. She's bottom scooter and definitely on her way towards walking and we're really hopeful that she will walk and she's also nonverbal so it's kind of the way it exhibits for her okay so to dive into our show today. The first thing that I wanted to do for the benefit of our audience just let everybody know about a few weeks ago and this'll be like a couple of months ago once this show releases. We did a survey on risen in motherhood on our instagram account. In just asked our audience kind of where they are at and so these stats were really really interesting to discover and it. Maybe it'll just be interesting to you. See the makeup of our audience but thirteen percent of the risen. Other audience does have a child with special needs but seventy eight percent of our audience members know. Oh a fellow mom that does have a child with special needs and I thought that was just really interesting that like it seems like almost everyone is either personally affected with having a child with special. You'll need or they all know someone. So we're hopeful that today's show can just be really beneficial for so many of you in our audience. Not just for the Momma who is going through the Everyday Day with a child with special needs but also for those of you who want to support your friend in WanNa know how to love them and how to care for them well and the other interesting thing that we found out was that thirty one percent of MOMS who child with special needs don't feel supported by their church family. So that's something that we're going to talk about a little bit more specifically today how the church can help a family that does have a child with disabilities or special needs so that was just a stat that was sad not necessarily surprising but a hard stat to see so anyway. I think we'll just dive in here and we're GonNa let the conversation flow our hope. Is that you guys feel like you are sitting in a conversation with four MOMS Tom. Who are just being really candid? Invulnerable and honest about what it's like to raise a child special needs and how to just love a fellow mom who is in that spot so so for those women out there who may be are a little bit nervous or don't know what to say or how to move forward. I WOULD WANNA give them some more practical advice. I guess from from four Mama's who've been there let's just start with talking about how specifically can of friend support a mother or a family that does have a child with special needs. What have you guys seen done for you? Well on a super like practical level some of the most helpful questions for for whereas have been how can we include cannon in this. What places are easiest for you to get together And you know just the hint. Sometimes depending on the disabilities special needs families might need a place with fences or doors that lock or not a lot out of steps for easier access. You know things like that that it's not people aren't being selfish when they suggest that. Hey let's all go on a hike. They may just not realize that a backyard defense is probably more doable for families. But it's just I think it can be scary for people to ask that because they don't want want to bring attention to special needs in the wrong way or they don't want to hurt your feelings At all but just just keep asking those what how can how can we include and then what would be easiest for you guys today in this weather.

"Our first guest is Chris Wing. He's the owner of big mountain bike adventures based in Whistler Canada and he's just launched a mountain biking tripping greenland inspired by his photographer. Friend been hanging. What are you laughing at? My insurance coverage along a guy who's solo traverse the route said Proxima two hundred kilometer trail trail. And it's all self supported very remote and he did this on his own and And then you know we spoke about it and I'm a I'm a tour operator amount by tour operator and have been almost twenty years and I thought it was an interesting idea to go there with you know with a small group of people and consider launching a you know a guided trip The first ever actually agreement. So yeah so. It was Benn's initial reconnaissance trip. And then we you know he was the the very first person to have ever mountain biking greenland there have been You know people going there in the wintertime and and snowbiking but In terms the traditional mountain biking. He was the first and then we went over this past September a few months ago with a group of five and checked it out. I I I can imagine that the favorite of logistics involved in Making show this is a safe journey as well. It some it's truly. You know I've been. I've been in this business for almost twenty years. I've never never been to such a remote destination as as greenland and you know. It's one of those. It's one of those trips that you you know. It's it's an adventure. It's a trip but it's really truly an expedition where you need to plan for For possibilities where things could would go from comfortable and fairly exposed to very exposed quickly. You know if you had a You you know if the weather turned or or an injury or even a simple mechanical problems your bike you know getting somebody evacuated in that part of the world is you know it's a is is quite an ordeal so Yeah it was. It was definitely required. Some very careful planning and you know the right group of people that need to come together to do this trip. It looks amazing. Unlike the downhill beat the buy. Yes yes no doubt. Two hundred and fifty as it's not easy easy there is some challenging aspects to it. Yeah no it's it's true in. It's it's a bike packing trip also and which is kind of a a a- An emerging style of mountain biking It's become quite popular in you know in recent years and and basically it's like going on hiking trip but with your mountain bike where you're you know you've got very very light wage setup. That's that's fixed on your bike. So they've developed. You know really cool bags that fit onto your bike. In such a way that don't inhibit. The you know the the writer from from peddling and maneuvering a new ring the bike so it's not like traditional paint gays but these are small bags it kind of fit in various places on your bike and as I said has to be very very lightweight late light lightweight they've developed ten specifically per byte by packing. And so you're you know you're riding. You're pushing your bike From point to appoint in camping during the night. So it's It's really definitely an acquired experience. Not everyone yeah. I hang on light white and called called by doesn't seem to get to be old. That's Oh yeah you're hundred percent correct like I. I consider myself to be someone that's experienced quite a few ooh difficult situations and hardships. And and I you know I I love I love being out in the elements But on this trip I was. It's you're you're you're exactly correct where you know. You need to pack as lightly as possible in almost that kind of scenario where your cut your toothbrush. Notice Shave a few grams Type of thing and and your food everything has to be really calculated every Calorie But when we arrived camps he'd been writing approximately eight to ten hours a day in you pull into a you know the place where you're GonNa camp for the night and then all of a sudden you know your body is cooling down and MM attempt is cooling down considerably and The nights that we're you know we're there. Your I was basically every single layer of clothing that I had in my sleeping bag while sleeping so it was Yeah it was a little bit you know it was on the verge of being like okay. This is a little bit. Almost you know Berry exposed where you know that if you've got every single layer on clothing in your sleeping bag through the night that You know there's no margin. There's very little margin. Farrah Garad for for comfort. That say you'd say you're writing details today but that must be because you have to keep stopping and looking at the amazing reviews. Some you know it's it's it's an amazing place really I mean. The Arctic is is unique and appreciated just the vast remote nature of Greenland. Just you know there wasn't you'd stop. Stop Riding and look around and it was you know completely dead silent you know. We saw a reindeer couple of eagles GREENLANDIC. Eagles would come and check us out and men That was that was pretty much yet terms of wildlife and you know just a few other hikers here and there that we encounter. I had that feeling feeling. We all did where you're just so so remote and so exposed to the elements that it was a little unnerving at times where you felt like h you know it was kind of another level of exposure. We can greenland but very cool all and memorable. That's for sure we spot device that allowed us to send a text if we you know in an emergency I find when you're when you go to places like like Greenland that haven't seen a lot of tourism you're you gain this kind of really deep appreciation for nature Because it seems like a planet is becoming more traveled and places cases are more busier than they've ever been and so to go to a place that has few humans is is quite quite special and you really feel like you want to do your best protect Greenland of course and then everywhere else you go. We are essentially a travel insurance company at the end. Yes no ask you some questions about how you did. Some preparations reparations because yeah in providing travel insurance in Suchai remote like we've got some problems as you say it's hot get somebody evacuated. It's expensive. There's a problem for us because we provide the service that we like to promise that we can't because it's impossible because it just doesn't exist for that reason why not sell policies cease to North Korea because we can't do job that did you have any special resources. Did you hook up with a evacuation company. How did you will nice thank you well? It's it's a very good question because we're you know we're we're of course boldly going to be selling packages to to greenland to to those. That have the experience and the The ability first and foremost on if we needed to be evacuated we would have to be calling in a helicopter. OPT from from nook. which is the you know the capital? It's a horribly expensive operation. You know we just are very transparent of course swith participants in that if if it's if it's required you know it's something that one is going to have to You know to foot the bill folks for obviously we do we do have the contact in place if it was needed and dob we we do everything we possibly can to to avoid. You know having to get enough in evacuating
The Road to Building Products with Nick Lesec
"You've worked, it might not work in sports. Priority did working gaming. Yeah, actually. So after college I went and got A. An associate's degree actually. Went from a bachelors back to an associates. In game production. So. We learned the basics of everything that goes into making a game. Things like design arts animation programming all that fun stuff. and. From there actually was a QA tester to K-. If you've ever played the game, x Com. You're welcome. I mean I was just the tester but. Actually not the funnest job, but What what is quickly because I know that's a lot of people when they wanted to get into sports or wanted to in the gaming. Gaming particularly. Yes, cigarettes entry level it like the dream job right? Yeah, yeah, and I! I was imagining like Grandma's boy. Everyone just sitting around playing video games all day high fiving each other. But? It's basically you're you're playing. A broken piece of software. Over and over. For eight hours a day. Minimum. There's lot of overtime. And you're you're looking for bugs and logging the bugs. Wow, that sounds thrilling is grueling. Prefer too late to the game comes out. Yeah Yeah. And then. From there action went to t h Q, which is now defunct. Publisher for for Video Games. They were up there with like EA Knack Division things like that. I was doing trade marketing there, which is like retail marketing, so we worked a lot with. basically like physical stores for the marketing that goes on in there like you know these big displays in the store, or you know how to position the game on the shelf and things like that. It was a mix of that as well as trade show coordination, which is really fun I. Really Liked doing the trade show stuff. There's a lot of moving parts. So I got to flex my project. Management skills there That's where I learned a lot of those skills and. You get to travel a lot. which was superfund fun. There would be like six months out of the year where it's just like nonstop travel going around the country even got to go to whistler. Canada, which is like Super Nice. Snowboarding slash ski resort town. That was really really cool and I found out that Canadians are just way way more active than. than all of Americans every day there, let's go bungee jumping and. Let's. Let's go skiing and snowboarding and let's. What is it called? Let's go zip lining unlike. Anita NAP. Yeah, I think Austrailia goes to whistler to work on the mountain. So many Soviet, my friends throughout like this, a high school and college years ended up going to whistle to like train people. Get to work out the lift operators or trade. kind of stuff. So. Yeah, you make a lot. Australians there as well. How did you get into product management specifically? Well. As well with a lot of product managers. That was kind of something that. Is Not something necessarily planned on. Something I kind of fell into and then fell in love with it. So basically I was at. A Marketing Company for beauty products. In their digital department, for like their websites and everything and I was doing what they called I was digital producer. is mostly because they were a TV company. They made a lot of infomercials. That's their bread and butter and where they came from. Then they introduced. They found out about this thing called the Internet and. You know. Put their products on the websites and everything and they were just like you like you coordinate and. Developers and all these people to build stuff. Oh, you're your producer digital producer your digital producers. But it became clear pretty quickly that like for this company to succeed and grow. You need to embrace this whole. Internet thing. It's not going away. So they decided to get really serious and build out this department and and start to treat this department and the rest of the company more like a Internet company like an e commerce company. And so that entailed redefining some roles so one day they were like. Your product manager now and I was like what is i. don't even know what that is. So I looked it up and I did all his research and. Along with my fellow digital producers now recently product managers. And it was really cool like it. Like opened up this whole world I didn't even know was there at the time. And I. Remember One of my my co workers. He's like. This whole product management thing this is this is a really big deal like this is a huge step forward for us like take this very seriously and so I did and I studied the hell out of it. You know trained myself on a lot of best practices and things like that reading books, articles and Talking to people and was actually able to help. Build out the product management discipline. there. Since I seem to be. One of the folks that cared. To do so and. Yeah just. Being able to learn and teach these things and then apply them in real life. was just so cool and it's one of those jobs that like. You can see the results with with numbers and everything and you can. You can gauge success. And I mean that's how I got started. And then from there I went to that that learning company I was telling you about would that have made sure product management organization already in place and. was able to learn a lot more there
Democrats warn White House to expect subpoena on Ukraine
"All right now to the topic of impeachment Matt as we her palm pale says that he was on trump's call with the Ukrainian president Pompeii always fighting subpoenas and the depositions of current and former staffers house Democrats are threatening to subpoena to subpoena the White House on Friday here's house intelligence committee chairman Adam Schiff this morning we want to make it abundantly clear that any effort by the secretary by the president or anyone else. to interfere with the Congress's ability to call before it relevant witnesses will be considered as evidence of obstruction of the lawful functions of Congress. not Democrats say the white house's stonewalling do you agree why not why don't they just turn over the documents if they've done nothing wrong. yeah I mean there are obviously executive privilege concerns between executive branch the legislative branch of course Leslie branch has oversight responsibility of the executive branch there's always a push in pool and generally these things get negotiated and they come to an agreement and part of the reason they do that is that the house or or Congress whichever branch of Congress you're talking about you always can compel by by using their their power to do so but but generally they don't do so OB sector Pompey was sent a letter to two terms chef raising several concerns some procedural some related to whether state department counsel would be allowed to be in the depositions some related to enough time for those employees to be able to to retain counsel and and and and receive counsel so there's some issues there I think they're gonna work some of this out obviously Voelker who's now left the state department's testifying on Thursday in the former net written recently outgoing are you a semester Ukraine's contest five think a week from this Friday so they're going to start to get some testimony but they're not gonna get everything they want and they're certainly not gonna get it as quickly as they want but if that it sounds like they do want to get it quickly they don't want this to drag on for months that's what Adam Schiff said today they're going to move quickly what do they need to do the Democrats to keep the pressure on the White House and and not lose focus on this do exactly what they're doing and more of it I mean we've seen you know attempts by the trump administration and some other witnesses to not give testimony before Congress to not give truthful testimony to withhold evidence we know the Pompeii always now knowledge that he was on that call which is in contradiction to the testimony he gave the senator comma Heris when he was before the Senate earlier so he's now been implicated in so I believe he needs to be benched on any decisions around what evidence is brought before I do believe they need to hold people in content that they need to hold people in jail until they're ready to come forward or bring evidence I think they need to do that there are you know we there's a whistle blower involved here were worried based on threats about that whistleblowers life the faster we can get this thing done a. think the better. I house speaker Nancy Pelosi spoke earlier today and she said Democrats should be prayerful and calm about impeachment and your heart's worst to say for the president this president United States is stooping to a level that is beneath the dignity of the constitution of the United States and our founders since the chairman mentioned found if they put a guard rails in the constitution because they're new there might be someone who would over play his or her power. they never thought that we would have a president who would kick those guardrails over and disregard the constitution and say apposite article two says that I can do what ever I feel like. and while pelo C. was actually speaking the president was live tweeting and he called BSE actually use that full word even Democrats thought this Ukraine focused impeachment would be an easy sell I do you agree on that I don't know that I would say that I mean I think an impeachment is a serious thing and I think you know leader Pelosi is right in and making sure that we all treat it that way you have an admission no by a president you have an admission by his personal lawyer you also now have the secretary state who's now been implicated you got Australia a you've got a whistle blower you've got a transcript so you know I would say that you know compared to the mother investigation where it was based on a previous election not a current one where with members of the trump administration not the president himself I think this case is much more clear and I think the American people are starting to see that hi Matt we we heard their time you said that the president used the word B. S. in a tweet but use the full word this is what he said earlier in the oval office he had a long Sir of VA sitting in the oval office with the leader of Finland and he went on our on our ranch basically a lot of people call it a rant about what's going on in Congress here's a little bit no Republicans have raised concerns. and it was a blur I don't care they just look I think a whistle blower should be protected if the whistle blowers the gentleman and he doesn't believe this whistleblower is legitimate what do you make of of president trump's response to all of this he seems a bit flustered. you're asking well I'm asking hours are okay good yeah yeah I'm yes I'll go I think he's he was you know somewhat blind sided by this doesn't feel like it's a fair process may not understand how whistleblower protections work obviously that was Barney's be protected but their motivations and who else was involved I think is part of quickly since he had you know here she admits that most if not all of the communication that's in the Whistler complaint came second hand so let's look at it if if they're asking me what I think they should do I think they need to set up a war room inside the White House which they haven't done our house for Mustang actually haven't done right in present wants to sort of have control and you know he doesn't need to be the messenger on this I mean at times he can be but what they need to have someone who understands all the facts who has responsibility for for controlling the message who has a credibility up on Capitol Hill and and media that can answer questions I can respond quickly that can correct you know things that are false and they don't really have that capability right now and they need it. that are I want to know your thoughts polls are showing that support for impeachment is gone up eight to ten points over the past week it seems that voters are evenly divided on it or slightly in favor of it what numbers do you think the White House is watching moving forward. yeah and and one thing I just because we correct on that it is why don't we seen polls on quote impeach we see polls on impeachment inquiry right yes and so yes yeah and there's a distinction I think it's important stinks because I think if you ask the question you know do you believe the president increase should go forward in the presence of people from office there's not a major but majority for that so that is the question and and look if there were a majority truly in favor of an inquiry the question needs to be asked to speak or why she hasn't voted for the impeachment inquiry on the floor which would strengthen her hand in some of these legal proceedings getting access to witnesses and documents so I don't think the opportunity votes in the house to do it which is why they haven't held the vote just whether taking a two week recess and I think they've lost momentum so far this week so but look yes if independence were to start to sharply move away from trump towards the Democrats that would put some pressure on Republicans so far you really haven't seen Republicans get on board with the impeachment inquiry have been one or two people here they're they're gonna have to have a lot more than that for change

"A single moment and change everything needs to stay up late at night with my dad watching movies on TV the and one night he cried. Emily Burke host of the new podcast that made all the difference. I talked to achievers documentary filmmaker. Ken Burns about the moments that inspired them to make an impact by news. There was some power to film that I wanted to be a part of you can find that made all the difference anywhere you get your podcast created needed by Bank of America. What would you like the power to do so in the end it feels like this is above all kind of the story of a very determined determined and persistent whistleblower absolutely we've learned a lot about the CIA officer who made this complaint he was very three determined he was nervous that his complaint wasn't going to spark the right kind of investigation and because because he was nervous he kept pressing and he got the right kind of investigation going right and Julia certain point you and our colleagues in the Washington bureau decided to publish details about the whistle blowers background not his name but the fact that he worked for the CIA and had spent time at the White House. Why did you feel that that was important to telling the story that you just laid out. I really believe that you can't understand how the whistle blowing in process worked and almost didn't work in this case unless you understand the role of the C. I. A. in the initial investigation the role of the CIA in telling the White House that someone from their organization had concerns you look this was not a decision we took lightly you know the executive editor of The New York Times team bouquet weighed in on on this but he mentioned how much the president of the United States had put the credibility of the whistle blower into question and the president had called the whistleblowers count up political hack job we felt it was important to tell people about the credibility of the the whistle blower and part of that is telling people how we learn the information and what he did with it and you can only understand that and when you know that he came from the CIA but my sense from what you just told us is that the whistle blower took steps to conceal his identity from the very beginning by asking colleague to file this complaint. So how does that factor into your decision. That's true but remember member. There's a lot of information in that complaint. Once Congress makes it public we know he worked at the White House. We know he had expertise in European. Affairs and what's really crucial to understand is that we didn't tell the White House anything they didn't know just days. After the July twenty fifth call as soon as the top lawyer the C. I picked up the phone and called the White House. They knew the complaints were coming from the CIA so I really believe it's important to understand where the system worked and where it didn't work because it almost didn't work here and we now know why it almost must didn't work. We know better why it didn't work and if we're going to improve the systems so that you can make a complaint even about the president of the United States and it's taken seriously we need to understand the strengths and the weaknesses of the system and this reporting thing really shows how it almost didn't work so in the end the reason it's important in your mind in the mind of our colleagues to know no that the whistle blower was at the CIA is because it's important to understand this key sequence of events which reveals just how vulnerable it's whole system is when the alleged political wrongdoing is done by the president himself that's right. The system is fragile fragile. It almost didn't work and if we're GONNA improve it. We need to understand those weaknesses. You too and thank you very much. Thank you on Sunday. The White House intensified its attack on the whistleblower during an interview on Fox News Stephen Miller a senior adviser to the president claimed without evidence that the whistleblower was a partisan intent on hurting the president I know with the deep state looks like I know the difference between a whistle blower and a deep state operative this this is a deep state operative pure and simple after days of negotiations who whistleblower has reached an agreement to testify behind closed doors course before the House Intelligence Committee have you recently grammy yet with the whistle blower and his or her attorneys about coming before the committee and providing information firsthand yes we have that whistle blower will be allowed to come in and come in without a minor from the Justice Department or from the White House to to tell the whistle blower with a candidate cannot say we'll get the unfiltered testimony that whistleblower now we democrats continued to move swiftly to advance their impeachment inquiry starting with a subpoena to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo the subpoenaed demands that pump hail provide documents relating to president trump's CBS call with Ukraine's president including a full transcript of the conversation and it warns that a failure to comply quote shall constitute constitute obstruction of the houses impeachment inquiry in a letter attached to the subpoena the Democrats demand that five State Department officials linked to Ukraine episode. Sit for depositions beginning this week the number of house members who now support an impeachment inquiry has reached two hundred and twenty four over the weekend the First House Republican Representative Mark Work on the day of Nevada indicated support for the inquiry complaints filed should be processed by the all the committees that have a dog in that fight for oversight China that okay so let's let the committees get to work and see where it goes but soon after Amadeus staff quickly walked that back saying he supported oversight but not a formal impeachment inquiry.

"And what's different about this whistleblower complaint awake with the Intelligence Communities Inspector General from this internal CIA complaint. I wonder if the process itself is any different between we need to complaints. It's a very different process. The whistle blower process is designed to protect the person making the complaint to protect their identity to protect them from reprisals but it also allows for an independent investigation instead of the C. I. I lawyer working with White House lawyers. The inspector general is going directly to the witnesses this time it won't be the the White House lawyers asking questions this time it will be the inspector general asking questions and crucially in this process. If if a complaint is deemed credible it goes to Congress so this is like a turbo charge. Complaint process compared with the first one hundred percent percent. It's a very different process. This is what he wanted to see. In the first place we think a neutral arbiter an outside side person looking at this and outside person can look at it without a conflict of interest and presumably will not try to brush it aside or ignore north so this would ensure that what he was most worried about that the White House would be conducting this investigation and possibly quashing it but that can't happen. That's right so at this point correct me if I'm wrong. There are basically two processes happening at the same time the original report within the CIA is working working its way through the system and now this more formal complaint filed by the officer himself to the Inspector General of the intelligence community. It's starting going to unfold so what happens with that. I complained within the CIA the CIA doesn't know there's a whistleblower complaint not yet and so the size top lawyer continues her work and she finds there's a reasonable basis for this complaint and under our government policy under the rules. She has to alert the Department of Justice and she does she does it on August fourteenth two days after the whistleblower complaint is filed so a lawyer from the Department of Justice goes to the White House and reads the original transcript the transcript scripted the July twenty fifth call between President Trump and prisons Alinsky the one that has been pleased and that special computer system kind of hidden away from wider circulation that might embarrass the president exactly and the lawyer says wow this is serious areas and so what does he do. He tells his bosses and who's the biggest boss Attorney General William Bar so the the attorney general is alerted to the situation by the original. CIA complained right the CIA investigation that original complaint is at the Department of Justice where it enters a kind of legal purgatory and ultimately nothing happens okay so they basically quash it what happens to the other complaint the whistleblower complaint so the whistleblower complaint goes from the Inspector General to the director of National Intelligence Agence now ordinarily intelligence chief would just send it onto congress but this involves the president so the director of National Intelligence Collagen's decides he needs to consult with the Department of Justice and so the whistle blower complaint goes to the Department of Justice but they already know all about this because they got the CIA complaint days before and so they're ready so they do their review and they say it's not a criminal matter. There's nothing to see here folks. Nothing needs to happen and it doesn't need to go in Congress so because the Department of Justice has gotten a heads up about this through the I complain when this official more more formal supposedly independent whistleblower complaint arrives the people inside the Department of Justice. They know what they're gonNA do and what they're gonNA do is basically we say. There's nothing to see here. This ends here that's right. They're ready and they make a critical decision that that it doesn't need to go to Congress but of course we all know A. Does get to Congress eventually. So how does that happen that happens because the Inspector Inspector General has notified the House Intelligence Committee that there is a complaint and the House Intelligence Committee knows is that it's highly unusual to be notified of a complaint and then not to get it and so they start making a stink so it's possible that if the whistle whistle blower had just left at the first internal. CIA complaint we might not have known any of this because it appears that the Department Hartman of justice which of course works the president would have more or less kept it under wraps. That's right only because of the whistle blower process only because the inspector general gave a hint to Congress that there was something to see. That's the only reason this this went forward right. What's so interesting about this. I don't think I understood it before. Is that a lot of this is unfolding inside the executive branch the CIA answers to the director of National Intelligence who answers to the president. All of these entities were for the President United States. The only thing it's different about the whistleblower process is is it triggers communication to the legislative branch. That's right the oversight process of the United States. Government is is meant for mid level officials. It's meant for high level officials. It's not meant for the president of the United States what we've learned through all of this is that had if the allegation of wrongdoing is against the commander in chief the president of the United States the systems breakdown it can be blocked act by a politicized department of Justice it can be brushed aside by political appointees in the White House. That's what makes lakes that whistle blower system where there is a reporting line to an independent branch of government so important aw.

"Today it took just days for the whistle blowers complaint to trigger an impeachment inquiry against President Trump Julian Barnes News on the weeks that lead up to that complaint and how it almost didn't happen. It's in September thirty Jillian. Tell me about what you've been reporting up until now the focus has been on the whistleblower complaint and how it was handled. The explosive reports of a whistle blower complaint against president trump is raising more questions than answers. Here's how it was handled by the inspector general so when when you get into this what does it mean that they have blown through the legal deadlines does that in itself mean. I mean that the Intel agencies here are in violation of the law and what happens next how it was handled by the director of National Intelligence diddy handle it accurately currently when it wasn't released for so many weeks and how you know the Department of Justice react to that all of the Department of Justice declined to look into the allegations in it was the lowest complaint does bill bars behavior on this raising red flags for you but what I was interested in is what happened before the complaint was was filed what happened between July twenty fifth. When president trump has the call with the Ukrainian president and August twelfth when the whistle blower complaint was filed it could have been a really simple story of conscientious worker finds out about wrongdoing moles what to do learns that the Whistle Blower System exists and decides to submit a complaint but that's not what happened. We found out about a very different story. And what was that story immediately. After the July twenty fifth call there's concern in the White House officials who have heard it are worried about what they have heard this is not right this appears to to be a potential abuse of power and we learned that a CIO officer who used to work in the White House had learned about something Amiss in that July twenty fifth call at least a couple people talk to the officer. Tell him about this call all and there's enough of a level of concern here that the CIA officer decides he needs to do something about it and what he decides to do is to take the information to the a top lawyer but to do that. He doesn't WANNA go directly. He wants to stay anonymous so he uses a colleague to bring the information to the lawyer's office and do we know Julian why the CIA officer would do it this kind of indirectly through a colleague versus getting this complaint up to the top of the himself. We don't know exactly clearly but we have some evidence and so we can make educated guesses here. It looks like because the CIA officer worked in the White House House. His deputy could be quickly discovered we know that anonymity was very important to him and if the White House knew that supply officer who had worked there was making the accusations it would be very easy to identify him and what is the information information that the CIA officer has his colleague communicate to the top lawyers at the CIA. It's very big. The initial initial information that the colleague brings to the top lawyer is that something has gone wrong. There's been some impropriety in a call between Mr Trump and foreign leader. There's no date there's no name of the foreign leader there's no country so what are the top lawyers at the to with this kind of vague information the top lawyer at the CIA she needs to figure out if this information is credible but that information lies in the White House so to learn more she picks up the phone and she calls her counterpart at the White House and is that standard practice it is it is the standard practice. That's what the guidelines tell you to do okay so what happens after she alerts the White House that there's a complaint within the CIA involving the president so it turns out that the lawyers in the White House have have apparently also heard rumblings about the July twenty fifth call. They don't know how serious it is but there are series of calls on the week of August fifth between the CIS lawyers and the White House lawyers and they're trying to figure out what's going on and very quickly. They learned that a number of people within the White House have concerns earns about this July twenty fifth. Call so folks are taking this pretty seriously. I recognize that it's complicated because the has just has gone to the White House but investigators are investigating. Yes that's absolutely right from the C. I. Perspective. The folks at the White House are taking it seriously they're doing their due diligence there learning concerning information so meanwhile how much of this do we think filters back to the CIA DA officer who starts by asking his colleague to go to the top lawyers inside the agency. How aware is he of the kind of follow up that's going on. We don't know exactly remember the. CIA is top lawyer doesn't know who he is so the CIT officer Sir who has concerns is in the dark but remember he has sources at the White House right where he used to work right where he used to work and now the people who told them about the original allegations they start to talk to him again and they tell them they're being questioned questioned by lawyers ears but not from the CIA from the White House and that's not what he wanted in his mind. The Fox and the people around the Fox are suddenly investigating instigating who broke into the hen house exactly the Fox is in charge of counting the hens and that's not going to have a good result and what does he make that it's awesome. This is not what he was looking for. What we think is in the back of his head and is that the White House is doing this investigation and that means the White House could crush it. Could brush it under the rug. So what does this suddenly spooked cit officer do next. He decides to dramatically escalate the situation. Previously eviously he had the other officer bring the complaint to the lawyer he now takes matters into his own hands you you know it's been about a week since his original complaint to the CI lawyer the one delivered anonymously through a colleague and he has gathered more information Asian from White House colleagues. He's learned more about the call he's learned more about how although White House lawyers handled the notes of that call putting it into the White House's most classified system one meant for holding information about couvert action not banter between foreign leader and so he decides to take an important step one that will change the direction of this. He's GonNa file a whistleblower complaint and he's going to file it with the Inspector General for the intelligence community. This is the now famous whistleblower complaint we all know correct.
President Donald Trump gets heat for urging Ukraine probe
"Thanks for joining us has learned tonight that the President United States pressed a foreign head of state to work with his personal criminal defense attorney to investigate the son of a political opponent when you strip away all the complexities surrounding and including where it fits in the whistle blower fair there's one simple central point to this story which I broke in the Wall Street Journal Journal late today according to the Journal in July twenty fifth phone call president trump in his official capacity. Ask the president of Ukraine to do something in his official official capacity that would benefit not this country but president trump himself both politically and personally citing sources familiar with the matter the journal reports that he pushed the Ukrainian President about eight times on that one phone call to work with Rudy Giuliani on a probe of Joe Biden son Hunter who worked for a time with the Ukrainian Gas Company now according to the Journal and you'll hear shortly from one of the reporters who broke that story for the Journal. This did not involve an explicit offer of something in return quoting from the story. Mr Trump didn't mention a provision of US aid to Ukraine on the call said this person who didn't believe Mr trump offered the Ukrainian president any quid pro quo for his cooperation on any investigation similar reporting as well from the Washington Post on that and the hard sell Hunter Biden but unlike the journal opposed goes one step beyond saying that the call is at the center of the whistle blower complaints. The White House is trying to squelch the president meantime had this to say. It's a partisan whistle. Blow shouldn't even have information. I've had conversations with many leaders that always is appropriate and thanks God can tell you that always appropriate at the highest level was appropriate and anything I do. I fight for this country. I fight so strongly only for this country. It's just another political hack job. That's all it is. It's called it a beautiful conversation with the Ukrainian president his words words by the way the President says the whistler there is partisan later. He admitted he doesn't know who the whistle blower is. As we mentioned the Wall Street Journal source said the president did not offer any kind kind of quid pro quo for the Ukrainian president cooperation but we should also point out that at the time of that call Ukraine was anticipating receiving a quarter billion dollars in in military aid from the United States at the time of the call the aide had been appropriated by Congress but not yet approved by the president and in fact it was later blocked by the the president pending a review so I just WanNa zero in for a moment on the timeline as we know it. The call is on July twenty fifth and sometime in the early weeks of August is Rudy Giuliani met with and spoke by phone with emissaries of the Ukrainian president on August twelfth. The whistle blower complaint was filed at the end of August president trump trump ordered a review effectively blocking that military aid to Ukraine that Congress has already approved September first vice president pence meets with Ukrainian mean President Zilenski eight days later three House committees begin investigating all this and by September twelve that hold on the aid that the president put was was lifted now we don't know exactly who said what to whom but it's clear that even as private citizens. Giuliani who was pressing Ukrainians the president in his official capacity city was blocking money they badly needed and now we know these reports bear out the president was directly and repeatedly leaning on the Ukrainian president to essentially make trouble for his political opponent Joe Biden. We also know the president has made it clear that when it comes to foreign dirt on political rivals that door is always open your campaign this time Brad Radish foreigners if Russia China. If someone else offers you information opponent should be accepted it should be called the FBI. I think maybe you do both. I think you might WanNA listen and I don't. There's nothing wrong with listening. If somebody called from a country Norway we have information on your I think good one here. You want that kind of interference in elections. It's not an interference. They have information. I think I take it so having already said that that he would take it the question now now and it's kind of sickening to even ask would he also try to demanded or even extorted more now in the new reporting from the Wall Street Journal Rebecca Beca Ball House who shares a byline on it Rebecca. What are you learning about. President trump's call with the president of Ukraine. So what we understand is that in in this July twenty fifth call that he had with the president of Ukraine he repeatedly pressured him to investigate Joe Biden and his son in mentioned tinned on at least our around eight occasions that he should talk to trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani who's been mounting a very public campaign pain to have Ukraine look into what he believes is inappropriate by behavior by Joe Biden and his son but this is the first inclination that we have the first forest is revelation that we have that the president personally raised this in a conversation with his Ukrainian counterpart based on your reporting. There was no explicit a quid pro quo on that call if you go after the Biden's or their company one hundred Biden is affiliated with you'll get the military aid that we're holding up there on the call. There was an equip roku correct. That's right and that is a major piece of this because the Washington Post reported earlier this week I in a really great story that the whole whistleblower complaint that we've been talking about centers on a promise that the president made to a foreign leader and his Lee at least as far as this call with the Ukrainian cranium president goes were not aware of any specific promises that he made on that call we we don't believe that he mentioned the foreign aid that his administration in August was reviewing whether to send to Ukraine and we don't believe he necessarily dangled any other quid pro quos to the Ukrainian president and also what we know is that that Rudy Giuliani has admitted that he met with top Ukrainian officials back in June and August about the prospect of an investigation right and and and Giuliani was pretty public about the fact that in May he was planning a trip to Ukraine to meet with the president with Dolinsky who I guess who was at the time the president elect elect and that the president that president trump was aware of his plan to go to Ukraine which ultimately ended up canceling but as you say he he met in June in Paris with an official from Ukraine Prosecutor General's office and he met in in Madrid Aug with a top aide twos Alinsky and we believe believe he raised this is an investigation on both occasions and it was fascinating is when you see Rudy Giuliani on television you really never know what he's going to say and it's not even clear the he's entirely clear what he has just said and so one can only imagine in these meetings with Ukrainian officials in which there may be no transcripts at all all what he has actually said or what sort of arrangements have been made. It's such a fascinating story. Rebecca appreciate your reporting. Thank you so much. Thanks for having me well as we mentioned. This is all now being investigated in the House including by the Oversight Committee Democratic Congressman Gerry Connolly's a member. I spoke to him just before airtime culturing connolly. The President says it doesn't matter what he said to the president of Ukraine or whether he he talked about Biden eight times or not. Does it matter to you a traumatic to every American Addison it is not okay for the president of the United States to talk to a brand new newly-elected foreign leader who has no experience I might add in the political realm or in foreign policy and extort art from him a pledge to dig up dirt on a perspective political opponent that is not normal that is not ethical. It is probably probably not legal. None of us should accept that as the new norm in American politics use the word extort the journal is also appointing the president did not offer anything in exchange change on that call there are obviously a large commitments by the US that were being held up military aid and and the like which has now been released so after that call at the aid is the military assistance gets released released. Are you saying they're you think that would be a quid pro. Quo even if it's unspoken well well I use the word extortion deliberately Anderson because you accurately recall inexplicably president trump decided to suspend almost a quarter of a billion dollars of foreign military aid to Ukraine this at a time when combat continues in the eastern eastern part of the country when Russian troops occupy parts of the eastern part of the country and illegally occupy illegally annexed Crimea which is part of Ukraine watched the American people have confidence in Congress is ability right now to get answers from this White House whether it's in testimony or you know it seems like a just just stopping not cooperating is the White House strategy probably through the election and beyond well. I am one Edison who was called for the revival of inherent contempt. I think Congress has to enforce its own subpoenas and demands for documents by having a a a a menu of disciplines disciplinary action against those who refuse to cooperate to the legitimate oversight and accountability requirements of the Legislative branch of the United States government and that would certainly come into play here. This is another example of where trump has fired. I heard a confirmed director of an agency and put in place one of his own and acting director who certainly does not feel that he has the flexibility or maneuverability to respond to legitimate requests from Congress. He takes his marching orders from the guy who put him in the job and could take come out tomorrow morning. If this is true would this be collusion an effort to collude with a foreign power yes well. I would say it's at the the very least attempted collusion and remember many of us condemned Rudy Giuliani for saying he was going to do this very everything a number of months ago and at the time it was thought that he receives enough negative pressure from both sides of the Allen from the media that he backed off apparently he didn't not only did not back off the president himself got in the act and it's another sort of chapter in sorted presidency but realistically what what steps do you really have. I mean I know you said there should be a change in in inherent contempt but without that right now does this this just well. The the the only remedy had sent in front of us. Frankly is going to be impeachment. Connolly appreciate your time. Thank you

So you're you're compulsion was in the after dark screening where it deserved to be because it was terrifying. Good. That's good. So I mean, it has to do with a what we are. Maybe led to believe a serial killer would even though we do not really see a lot of victims. When we see some of the imagery. It leads us to believe that he is a serial killer. Yeah. I guess spoiler alert is he a serial killer or is he just misunderstood. I guess a little bit of both. He's serial killer. So it was take it from the perspective of the classic slasher guy and a ski mask, but you know, trying to do with a little reality. So it's maze-like silence of the lambs take on. It's not a schlocky. You know, slasher is more like, oh, this is real life. If this is happening. It's kind of terrifying. Try to try to get that anyways. Gotcha. Yeah. One of the rooms that we see in in this killers house is this creepy red room that is in a basement and just kind of tucked away, and he has his tools of his trade as it were laid out on on the table in this kind of you know, what anybody who has kind of read about serial killers. They have this kind of ritual, or at least a lot of them ROY do whether it is certain tools trade certain ways. So when you reproaching this film, what was in your head as far as that ritual. That your killer would have. Yeah, I just wanted to. I wanted to really cool seeing I wanted to take the viewer from this meek person who's just everyday person walking and then take him into the house and then to see the transformation of what goes into this. And what happens when they puts on the gloves. He puts on the mask. You know, his his posture changes it empowers him, whereas he might have been meeting the day. This is like really taking all that animalistic energy or whatever Pence up, and it's it really brings it out. So that was kind of like. Another thing, you know, just from this perspective of this character is you know, how he shuts it off because part of them knows it's wrong as everyone does. Right. Right.

NASA ScienceCast 285: Lightning Across the Solar System
"Lightning across the solar system. Presented by science at NASA. Lightning is beautiful as it is powerful of violent hotter than the surface of the sun electrical marvel, but might lightning and other planets, even more astonishing. Consider this when Voyager one flew by Jupiter in nineteen seventy nine. It's imager captured areas nearly as big as the US lit up by lightning and Jupiter's clouds. Voyager also captured other less flashy signs of lightning. University of Iowa physicist Doniger net is one of the scientists whose Voyager instrument detected. Radio waves called Whistler's signs of lightning. New horizons cameras captured lightning flashes on Jupiter, ten times as powerful as anything ever recorded on earth and recently Juno flank closer to Jupiter than any previous mission found that most of Jupiter's lightning is around the planet's higher latitudes unlike earth where lightning strikes primarily over land and most intensely at equator, judo detected peak rates of four strikes per second similar to rates on earth on earth. Lightning forms because colliding ice crystals and water drops inside clouds, create positive and negative electric charges, which becomes separated by convective forces when the charges become separated enough, a lightning bolt discharges. Something similar happens on Jupiter gases, including water vapor, rise from deep within the planet as they freeze ice particles become separated from the water drops by convection building charge, which is discharge. Charged as lightning. Lightning has also been observed on gas, giant Saturn in nineteen eighty to nineteen Eighty-one Voyager detected. Radio signals called Spheriks, which like whistlers are signs of lightning. Grenade says on earth. You can hear these high frequency radio emissions on your cars, AM radio as radio static during a nearby lightning storm Cassini recorded similar emissions at Saturn, revealing that for strong storms occurred as many as ten times per second. Grenet has been involved in the search for lightning on other planets across the solar system as well. Venus, for example, has a hot dry atmosphere made up mostly of carbon dioxide suffused with sulfuric acid. Could this brew become electrically charged and generate lightning when Cassini flew by Venus twice in nineteen ninety eight nineteen ninety nine good netted a search for lightning with a radio instrument. Perfect for detecting signs of lightning spirits. However, the instrument picked up no signs at all that same instrument easily detected Spheriks during a similar fly by of earth, two months later leading him to believe that there is no earth like lightning present on Venus. The European Space Agency's Venus express orbiter has picked up bursts of electro magnetic waves. Some scientists attribute to Whistler 's, but others argue that the instruments frequency range was too low to detect the usual forms of Whistler's. Grenet has used Mars express his radar system receiver to conduct a five year search for lightning associated with dust storms on Mars that search didn't find lightning. However, images from the Mars Global Surveyor show bright flashes indus- storms as well as craters on Mars that some scientists believed to be evidence of lightning strikes on the planet surface.

I never bought into whatever fake romance that they were building with the daughter because it wasn't real. It wasn't really exploiting. It didn't make any sense. It was one of those things where it just it's fine into two thousand two movie. It's not fine, but it's to movie and I get in and like came off just like, all right. Of course you like made the woman a love interest even though she's not. Do you think he do? They, she worse for some reason. I felt like. I didn't feel a sexual tension. I felt more like, no, I agree. There was those sexual tension, but there was just moments in which like, you know, what's his name? What's the guy's name. Whistler Whistler. They're like, you know, like comments like, oh, you guys are getting little close and like he like clearly at like they're certain moments in the movie where he's like, oh, he cares about her and I'm like, why? Yeah. If if more like, I think what sucks woodmen usually do like a pretty let me just make sure he's okay at the protected the Pretty Woman. And that's what I was another woman. The movie a probably like wanted to even seem even more like faint like a familial kind of thing, or like that's the connection that they were trying to explore right movie rain like and they had seen, but then they had a scene where she says like, like you deep down, you know, you're just like us. You're just pretending not to be like, why do you hate us so much? And that was so interesting and I really wanted them to explore that more and they never quite. That being said, I get it. And like also if I was a teenage, like if I had saw this in theaters, I was a teen which I was when it came out, I would've cared about any of that stuff. I was like, no, I just wanna see blade, like kill bunch of players, which is what this movie is like him, killing a bunch of empires. There's like no humans in this movie. Like all humans are familiar because he was onto threats. The vampires would've been pars are the, we're saving..
'Covert Affairs' actress Piper Perabo arrested for protesting Kavanaugh's court confirmation
"Piper. Parabola? She she was a haughty at night in. No, no. She was not a haughty in that movie. You know, who was though Bridget moynahan was here. Let me do this year. I'm going to do this for everybody because this is important point IMDB Coyote, ugly. Yes, you this is the kind of thing, by the way, we discussed on Facebook leftovers, and we're going to do it now because the actress piper para was in fact, arrested today at the Cavanaugh hearing, and she tweeted about it because you know, what that is. It's a little bit of grandstanding. Right. So piper was arrested and she's tweeting about it. Now. She's not going to go to prison over this piper is not going to go over pre. She's okay. So there was a movie years ago Coyote, ugly. You remember this movie dawn? I don't remember the movie, but I remember my brother. You know, he's still talks about Coyote, ugly. He talks about the movie. All right. So there's two thousand. Yeah. She was in. Okay. Now, you know what the movie's about it's about a bar in New York City called Coyote ugly, which is now become a chain. They have Coyote ugly, and a lot of different places. But and that's where you choose your arm off wake up with the woman. That's where the term comes from. When somebody's Coyote, ugly that you rather to your arm off than wake her up because you can't believe you're laying next. At the bar. These women are all hot and they're wearing leather pants and they dance on the bar, and they pour drinks on themselves on each other. Right. Okay. So that movie wasn't the year two thousand today was her second acting as a protester at the cavenaugh here. She's trying to get a little publicity. Of course, that you know, that spark now guess you ulcers in the movie John Goodman was in the movie Bill. He was hurt. He played her father. I believe. There was also an actress named Bridget moynahan. I think was the best looking of all the women and Coyote, ugly. You disagree? I do. But I you know, I was twenty when movie came out died a little bit of a crush on paper parabas. But I thought I haven't thought about her since then so nobody has that's the thing America has not fought of her in eighteen years. So today, she what happened. I get arrested at the cavenaugh hearing. All right. Sounds good. But you know, what happened to Bridget moynahan, though, she was ruined because she started in a movie called the sum of all fears. She played Dr Cathy Muller in the movie, the sum of all fears in the year two thousand two she's never been heard from again because her co star in that movie is Ben Affleck, Jack Ryan movie and ruin Bridget moynahan as well. I I just brought up a picture of all of the women in that movie. I withdraw my last statement your honor. Withdrawn and Bridget moynahan is a hundred percent hotter than issues. Yes. Yes. God. Not that hot close. She's a jersey girl. She's from I believe she's from TOMS river from not mistaken, and she's not that hot. She's she's crazy to jersey crazy. Bridget moynahan was the best looking one. She had a very promising career. And then they said, oh, hey, here's an idea you'll play Jack Ryan's future wife in the sum of all fears, Tom Clancy. She went great. Who's jack? Ryan is it Harrison Ford. No, it's younger jackal who who's going to be. It's going to be a Ben Affleck. And she had no idea that by agreeing to that would destroy Tom Clancy. Destroy herself. Ruin everything. So that's what happened there in case. You're wondering what happened to her? There used to have that game. Six degrees of Kevin bacon. Yes. He's a local guy. He is. You know, his dad was a big architect. His dad owns whistlers in cinnaminson brother does. I guess. Well, anyway, the instead of that we should do the six degrees of Ben Affleck, destroying everyone's career and movie we should do that sometime. I love that. I was able to take piper parabola at the cavenaugh hearing and use it as an opportunity to trash Ben Affleck. The best part of my day to six degrees of trashing bed. Athlete. We're just find a way to bring him into it and destroy and by virtue of that. If was not confirmed, then we can blame Ben Affleck because he's in some way connected by because piper forever who start in in some of all fears. Coyote of the bridge. Fears, but everything Ben Affleck touches everyone who's ever they all
