"william butler" Discussed on The Doctor's Farmacy with Mark Hyman, M.D.
"Week's episode of the doctor's pharmacy. Welcome to doctors pharmacy. I'm doctor Mark Hyman that's pharmacy with an F a place for conversations that matter. And if you're stressed about the world we live in, if you have a sense that we've lost direction, disconnected from each other from the natural world from things that actually matter. I think this conversation is going to be an important for you to listen to an extraordinary thinker, kind of a futuristic way. A man named Jamie wheel, who's the author of recapture, the rapture rethinking God, sex and death in a world that's lost its mind, which is a great freaking title. He's also the author of the global bestseller stealing fire, how Silicon Valley navy seals and maverick scientists are revolutionizing the way we live and work. And he's the founder of the flow genome project, an international organization dedicated to the research and training of human performance, which sounds great and it's very in line with functional medicine. How do we optimize ourselves in the world we live in? I've been featured in New York Times, Financial Times, wired entrepreneur, Harvard Business review, Forbes, and Ted. He's spoken at Stanford MIT, the Harvard club imperial college singularity university, the U.S. naval war college and special operations command sandhurst royal military academy and the bohemian club, which don't seem to go in the same sentence. And the United Nations, no small feats, and his voice and his message are really important. I think today in a world that's increasingly lost its way. And the concept of recapture the rapture is a very important concept that I think speaks to the loss of our sense of connection with everything with ourselves with the natural world with each other with meaning. So Jamie, welcome to the podcast. Oh, thanks for having me. All right, so we were chatting a little bit earlier over lunch about your post Burning Man experience with your wife. And discovering discovering a doorway to states of being and feeling and meaning that you previously had not accessed in the same way. And it led to work that you've been doing over the last ten years that finally led to this book. And to talking about some of the existential challenges in crises we're facing globally now, economic political, social, environmental, climate. I mean, the list goes on health. And it can be a very disillusioning time. When the headlines and the news are all pretty depressing, whether it's the war in Ukraine, whether it's climate change, whether it's increasing the degradation of our health and the polarization of society that the disconnection from each other so, you know, we've kind of have a world where it's hard to make sense of what's happening. It's hard to make sense of where we're going and what we're doing. And it leads to what I think you referred to when you're talk that you just gave and harvest festival. We are in podium in turkey. Leads to something called micro PSD, which PTSD, micro PTSD, which I think is a very interesting term talking about the sort of little traumas that we all face it sort of degrade our sense of well-being and happiness and health. So how did you sort of come to this concept of recapture the raptor? And how do we start to sort of make sense of the world and how we lost our way? Yeah, I mean, funnily enough, I think it was probably miss ages ago. It was probably 2015. And I just remember seeing a news clip of some American politician House of Representatives kind of fellow, maybe from Iowa, it might have been that Steve king fellow or something. Stridently holding forth in front of a microphone about women's reproductive rights, which is obviously come back to the fore lately. Four against them. Massively against. And I was like, well, what on earth does this old way to? And I think there's some crazy statistic that members of Congress only 30% have passports. Wow. And you're like, what? And so, yeah, so here is this old white guy, evangelical alt right leanings, holding forth stridently. About women's reproductive rights around which he knows next to nothing, and yet has this strongly strongly held convicted opinion that is actually going to be shaping legislature politics and the actual on the ground realities for, you know, half of the world, all the women. And I thought, my God, what a crazy situation we're in, where this goes back to William butler Yates is poem, the second coming. The one about slouching towards Bethlehem, you know, that kind of thing. But he has that great line where he says the best lack all conviction, while the worst are filled with a passionate intensity. And in that moment that can. Right? There's just that sense of like the best lack all conviction and the worst are filled with our Phil. Isn't it intensive? Passionate intensity. And that to me was the seed of writing this book, which was, oh my gosh, the crazies of hijacked the mic of our collective conversation. You know, on both sides of the political spectrum. And the moderate middle, right? That the best of us, the rest of us, need to find a way back to shaping the narrative of where should we come from? What's going on and what do we do now? And that was really it. It was the idea that at a high level, you know, rapture ideologies, the idea that there is, you know, the world as we know it is doomed, it could be spiritual, religious, ethical interpretation, because of moral degradation, where sinners and Armageddon to pay. Or it could be a techno utopian rapture. It's systemic over consumption, collapse, population, whatever it would be, so we need to build underground bunkers or space colonies, right? Either way, we are being increasingly in the grips of these rapture ideologies, and all of them share the same trait, which is their one percenter solutions. Now, how you slice into dice who gets to be in the 1%, it could be the religiously observant or pious, it could be the technological best and brightest. It could be to be meritocratic like that, or it could be simple, socioeconomics, who has the money and the cash to build a branch in New Zealand. They're all 1% solutions, for our collective challenge, and that leaves 99% of us, right, high and dry. So how do we reclaim the story and the narrative around our collective future? And then also kind of a double meaning of the word rapture. So not just a sort of biblical end times or techno utopian, because while singularity, but also our lower case rapture, the idea of our bliss, our healing, our inspiration, our connection, our agency. How do we reclaim that? Because we can't reclaim that, then we sure as hell can't engage the capital R, rapture, conversation. So it's a sort of a dual a dual interpretation of the word. How do we reclaim our inner passion courage and conviction so that we can have the bigger conversation about what do we all do now? So in a way, healing of the world starts with us. Yes, and that's a slippery slope for folks that are socialized and conditioned to believe in the kind of personal growth slash new age spiritual bypass. Because often when people of privilege and access to personal development and growth, biohacking optimization, spiritual seeking, hear that. They get agitated about the state of the world. And then there's that quick, quick, quick movement into a spiritual bypass of O change comes from within. We can't heal the world until we heal ourselves, and that becomes a convenient excuse to go back to my weekend workshop to seek stillness on my meditation cushion to do my yoga practices or my psychedelic therapies, my medicine journeys, whatever it might be. And we've effectively bypassed our social responsibility to people who don't have access to those opportunities. People where we absolutely need to be acting on collective behalf of social justice inclusion for the bottom 4 billion people. So there's a lot of well established critiques on kind of 1950s to now make spirituality. We sort of break it down in ways that make sense to me, which is kind of cultivating our own ability to connect to source or truth or meaning or you call it rapture, but that has to happen within the context of you call it stasis or ecstasy states, right? That's to be connected to community, and that has to be connected to the context in which we live and also the healing, the general healing of our larger toxic culture. Absolutely. And then there's also that, you know, I think a potentially helpful guideline, which is sort of 80 20 woke to broke. You know, like, tell me what you mean by that. Well, the idea that,

"But the negotiations are now taking place in the Russians have made some kind of significant response. They have not responded to our offer. They have not responded to our offer. I thought there were reports out there that this had been rebuffed. Remembering that the Biden administration proposed swapping grinder, of course, a basketball star here, Olympic gold medalist and Whelan for Victor bout from saying it right that this was the arms dealer. Russian arms dealer, they call the merchant of death. Was sentenced to 25 years in 2012. And a second Russian also held in a U.S. jail. This went from a two for one to a two for two. Victor boot, thank you, Rick. The merchant of death, and so there were a lot of questions right now about what's taking so long and if the U.S. has any leverage at this point with the war in Ukraine going on and obviously a lot of other world events that are challenging these negotiations were joined to talk about it. By William butler, John Edward Fowler distinguished Professor of law at Penn State author of Russian law and legal institutions and back with us here on sound on. Professor is great to have you here. Number one, were you surprised to hear today that we have not had a reply we haven't heard back on this offer? I didn't expect this to be an easy negotiation, so I'm not surprised. I would suspect that both sides are excellent negotiators and they have objectives they want to reach. So if two for two isn't the acceptable or at least the two that are on offer aren't acceptable. And either they'll have to go to a larger offer or reconsider their positions. Wow. Well, this is a tough spot we're in here. The White House is obviously trying to put some light on it today, getting people like us to talk about it again and get more questions being asked out in the public space. But what leverage does the U.S. have right now with this war going? I'm not sure that we have much leverage in and of itself. So we have her appeal pending, of course, and it's possible she may get some relief from the appeal, but it's also possible she may not. Other than that, I think it's just a question of two sides who are experienced negotiators coming to an acceptable solution. But you see a solution coming at some point. Well, since I'm not close to matters at all, it's easy for me to say that they might consider the possibility of a larger exchange that if two for two is not considered to be equitable by one side or the other. They might go to three for three or three or four even. You specialize in international and comparative law focusing principally on Russia and I wonder your thoughts on this case. I mean, you laugh at the idea of an appeal. No, I do not. I don't know precisely the grounds for appeal. Leniency is certainly one of them, but there will be other points that the council of raised. So there's obviously some opportunity there. But when you consider the straits that Whelan is in as well, how long can this go on for? I mean, this is they're being held in terrible conditions from what we understand. They're not always in contact with their families. What else can be done for them in the meantime? Well, confinement, such as their experiencing is not pleasant under any circumstances. It can go on, of course, until they complete the serving of their sentences. That would be no result to the negotiations. Do we have anything to offer them that doesn't impact the war that doesn't actually involve the war in Ukraine? Do we have leverage elsewhere as we approach this conversation? It's not obvious to me that we do. That's why I was thinking in terms of possibly expanding the offer to more people. Becoming involved in two on each side. Does Vladimir Putin have sway over Russian courts? Should we assume that? We should assume I think that he does not for these purposes and that he will be reluctant to appear to be exerting any influence unduly over the courts. So I can William butner butler Professor of law at Penn State about this situation involving Brittany griner and Paul Whelan. I'm assuming that an event today an event like we saw today at The White House, which was not on the president's schedule, it was not one to be held with cameras and so forth, but it got the conversation going. Is that on the radar in Russia? I would expect it to be on the radar in Russia. Britney is a popular basketball star there, as well as here. She has fans in both camp, so to speak. I wonder what you think about the idea of Brittany griner specifically as a hostage. If she actually had the cannabis oil with her and so forth and I realized that could be a question in Russia. She actually did break a law. Do you consider her a hostage or a political prisoner at this point because I'm assuming that you or I would be in jail if we did the same thing? I think you or I would be in jail if we did the same thing. I think it's not probably helpful to think of this in hostage terms, although once you begin the negotiations for an exchange, what is tempted to do so. What do you think Vladimir Putin is looking for in terms of his own leverage? I think he's looking for the release of somebody that he's of interest that is of interest to him that he would like to have back home. William butler, I appreciate your being with us. John Edward Fowler distinguished Professor of law at Penn State with us on Bloomberg sound on as we assemble our panel for their take. We've talked about this before when we went through the verdict and we went through the sentencing process and now that we're in appeal, the U.S. really seems to be on ice here. Rick Davis, Jeannie Chan xeno, are with us, Bloomberg politics contributors, happy Friday to both of you. A Genie, The White House seems to be in a real jam here if they're bringing family members into assure them that there's hope that doesn't sound like progress. It doesn't and you know so many things in your conversation just alluded to all of this that make this so much more complicated. We had the ambassador John Sullivan retire early. He was intimately involved for family reasons he retired. He was intimately intimately involved in these negotiations. That's just about a week ago now. We don't know how that's going to affect it. We have former UN ambassador Bill Richardson headed over there, although the government, it's not an official visit. Don't know what that is about. And of course, big questions loom. The United States engaged in this kind of negotiation to swap prisoners. Does that encourage adversaries like Venezuela or Iran to detain Americans? That's a big question hanging over all of this. And we haven't heard a lot of response from

The real estate company says the city offers a great mix of available and affordable rental housing and home to a high share of singles. So book those plane tickets folks. And that's a Bloomberg business flash and now back to Bloomberg balance of power with David Westin. Thank you so much, Courtney. This is balance of power coming from the Bloomberg interactive brokerage studio in New York. Brittany griner is the most decorated WNBA star in its history. But for several months now, she's been in a Russian prison, arrested on charges that she was illegally importing cannabis oil in her suitcase. When she came into the country as part of a plan to serve on a basketball team and catering, as I recall, as a professional basketball player in the off season over there, she was on trial, and then yesterday we learned that she pled guilty as it turns out, the question is what comes next to help us answer that question, we turned out a Penn State law professor, William butler, who specializes in international and comparative law and is an expert on Russia. So professor, thanks so much for being here. First of all, take us into the process here a little bit. She's pled guilty. She was in the middle of the trial. Is this unusual? Well, technically, she's not pled guilty. Is portraying it to me? What she's done under Russian law is acknowledge her guilt. They don't have pleas. The acknowledgment that she's made has no procedural implications whatsoever. The court may accept it or not. But I think she timed her acknowledgment of guilt because she's now seeking leniency in the assignment of punishment if she is convicted. So is this roughly equivalent of throwing yourself on the mercy of the court as it were? Not in their concept. No, the exercise is now to determine what kind of person is she. They believe that the court has already determined that a crime was committed and that she's responsible for committing it. So now they'll turn to her as an individual and they'll ask, what are the factors that may mitigate or aggravate the offense that she's alleged to have committed? As I understand it from press reports and admitting guilt, not denying her guilt, she said that it was a mistake that she didn't know it was in her luggage. Is that a mitigating factor, do you think? If the court accepts it? It is if the court accepts that there are many things that will happen though, I suspect I would guess that the next session of the court, they will produce witnesses on her side who will testify as to her character as to her honesty, et cetera. So it's like a sentencing phase, I guess, in the United States in a sense. At the same time, what is the possible penalty here? I've heard ten years. Ten years is the maximum. Unfortunately, what's not being said in most of the media is that there's a minimum in the minimum is 5 years. Oh. So it could still be 5 years. One of the prospects is some people have speculated. I think it's speculation in the media. This might be a step in a more intricate process of perhaps an exchange of prisoners. Well, there's been talk for some months now of a potential swap. That, of course, is always possible and that's in the discretion of the government's concern. It's up for them to decide whether they want to do that kind of thing or not. I don't see that that has any direct relationship with what's happening in the courtroom at the moment though. Professor, we in the United States have somewhat, I think, jaundice view of the Russian criminal system. But that may be unfair. We don't know about it. Would the fact of the confrontation right now between the United States and Russia over Ukraine enter into the court's decision making? I think it's unlikely that litter into the court's decision making, but it certainly will enter into the swamp decision making if they decide to go that route. It's not a comfortable time to be undertaking that initiative. Do we have any sense of how long the sentencing phase will take? Let me go back a second. Having now admitted guilt, does it put an end to any further evidence being admitted in

"You valde, Biden fears another cycle of inaction on guns by Bryant Bennett. As president Joe Biden sat with New Zealand prime minister Jacinda Ardern in the Oval Office on Tuesday, the juxtaposition was hard to mess, a leader of one country who had robustly tackled gun control after one horrible mass shooting. Beside another, who remained incapable of such action after hundreds. It was a little over three years ago when a white supremacist gunman armed with AR-15 style semi-automatic rifles and shotguns, murdered 51 people and injured 40 at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, and live streamed the killings on Facebook. Within a month of the massacre, Ardern led an overhaul of New Zealand's gun laws that included banning most semi-automatic and military style weapons and starting a buyback program that brought in 50,000 weapons. Only one New Zealand lawmaker voted against the legislation. Such a national response remains the stuff of political fantasy in the U.S., even a week after the massacre of schoolchildren and you vowed to Texas, which came about just ten days after racist killings in a supermarket in Buffalo, New York. Two of dozens of mass shootings in the U.S. over the past year. I want to talk to you about what those conversations were like if you're willing. Biden told Ardent, who was seated next to him in one of the oval offices pale yellow armchairs. The president then gave voice to a growing anxiety that the sheer number of mass shootings in the U.S. and the cycle of inaction has made too many in power, numb to the devastation. As he often does, Biden paraphrased an Irish poet, this time it was William butler Yates, too long a suffering makes a stone of the heart, Biden said. Well, there's an awful lot of suffering. He continued, adding much of it is preventable. Biden described his experience just two days earlier, spending hours in uvalde, Texas, as grieving families waited for time to speak to him about the tragedy. The pain is palpable, he told Arden. After reporters filed out of Biden's office, the two world leaders talked for nearly an hour and a half. On the rise of China's influence in the Pacific Rim and on trade initiatives. At one point, Biden asked Ardern to share with them how she rallied her fellow New Zealanders to take forceful action to reign in assault weapons after the Christ church shooting..

"Of hell that Dante reserved for people who refused to take a stand. I bring him up because to me, this characterizes very much the public's ambivalence with media on the other hand, a very important poem penned in the wake of the First World War. And the Bolshevik revolution took very strongly another position that deeply held conviction actually leads to mayhem, maybe you've heard this poem, turning and turning in the widening gyre, the falcon can not hear the falconer things fall apart, the center can not hold anarchy is loosed upon the world, the blood dimmed tide is loosed and everywhere, the ceremony of innocence is drowned. The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity. Also, William butler Yates, I mean, God damn it. Pick a side. And the thing is, is that he's sort of in those juxtapositions of those two quotes. He sums up most media consumers relationship with the press, which is that objectivity is wherever you happen to stand at the moment where one person sees moral courage, another person sees palpable bias. Bias is a big part of the discussion of the media always. Well, let's get into that then, because you have, I mean, and for people who haven't already picked up Brooks book. But there's a chapter in it about war and in that chapter, you mentioned that the bias, biases that plague media and journalism and reporting and people's consumption of that. I think the whole panoply of biases are present in war reporting in spades. The ones that matter are really not the political ones. Right. They're sort of traditionally. Tendency toward negativity, tendency towards sensations. So talk about those by which biases are so prevalent and how do they distort our perception of war and what is to be done about it? Yeah, there's commercial bias. It has to be new. That's why there is so few stories that go back to recover what happened after the event is over. We see that with almost every natural disaster and lots of unnatural disasters as well. Huge headline stories. They don't ever go back. They figure the public is no longer interested. That's commercial bias. There's bad news bias. We are always always focused on the thing that presents us to that. We're wired that way. Crime is overcovered as a result we think the world is far more dangerous than it actually is. Status quo bias. That means a belief that the system works. This is how it is most often expressed. And as a result, people don't want to change things unless the benefits are huge, otherwise the risks are too great. Access bias is a huge one. You really want to keep the lines of communication open with your sources and Washington. This is very much of a Washington thing, obviously. But, you know, is he stone just read documents, is he stone being the great investigative reporter who almost never did interviews with sources. He just did close reading of the documents. That's very rare today. And it's almost worthless because you almost never get anything useful. But access bias keeps people within the straight and narrow, if you piss off your sources, you won't get them to talk to them. And in wartime, that access is typically given by officials and military. And if you present that official position and then a dissenting opinion from civil society, you're not going to get that access. Oh, and in war, it is much more intense than that. It can mean your life. I mean, when you are embedded with a troop, you will fall in love with them because they're lovely young people, but also they are protecting you, and you see the risks they face. This is what they call war through a soda straw. It was a brilliant innovation, but that is the most extreme form of access bias. There's visual bias, obviously war provides amazing pictures. And it really sacrifices context for constant action, whether it's the latest bombing or in previous conflicts, the latest beheading or the IED or the crying children. I will grabe was known about was covered by not an obscure publication, I think newsweek and The Washington Post, a year and a half before it became a story. You needed the person standing on the box with the hood on the head, then it became a story. And that's not a small thing. There's narrative bias. That's real quick while we're talking about visual bias. Talk about Vietnam actually being the first televised tour and that was evocative and probably created some public pressure in a way that still photographs did not. It did create public pressure. It isn't the media, however, I do not believe is what ended the Vietnam War, although many in The Pentagon still believe that it did. I'll just say about narrative biases war is perfect for it because it's about stories. It's about narratives. It's about characters. What isn't good for narrative storytelling, science, science is horrible. And also moral relativity or relativism rather. And the idea that a narrative requires victims and villains and heroes and it presents the world in this manichean black and white way when the bad guys grievances aren't going to be really grappled with in the American media whether that's the Taliban or Russia. It is very difficult. And right now we don't have anyone reporting from the Russian side. You don't have to love the Russians to be interested in what's going on over there, you know? So there's definitely the narrative bias. And of course, all of the, oh, there's one other one, which is the one that actually is the only one that is an emphasized and engaged in thoroughly in war. And this is something that is unique to the American media, even though journalists lean politically left their story selection is no different from conservative story selection. And that is where bias first rears its head. It's the most important thing. And they also interview by and large far more right-wing or conservative people on television and even in the press than they do middle and left wing ones. And this is part of the bending over backwards in order to be fair. Fairness bias really distorts coverage in general. And it is and it is, however, pretty much disengaged when it comes to war. I would add one more bias. I'm not sure why this well I have a theory on why this is the case. But have you ever watched cable news? Whatever is going on, you might notice that there are incapable of covering more than like two stories in the course of the day. And now it's even one story. And I think the reason is that people are glued to the TV because they're interested in the major news of the day. And then if they're watching CNN and they say, okay, now let's go over and watch see what's going on in Los Angeles for this fire, then people will flick the dial. And so instead, they just present one panel and they don't have anybody reporting news and they they've cut back on that budget over the years. They just have one panel after another. Talking about the same damn thing, just 5 different people. And I think if you see the same thing on TV all day long, no matter when you turn it on, you might get an exaggerated sense of that story is important. And then I think without cable news,.

shrine of saint Cecilia in between Dallas Fraser's conspiracy of homo Jones and the manhattans call somebody please was the harp tone shrine of saint Cecilia You know what she was the saint is in charge of singers Did you know that That is true Yeah yeah Not a lot of people know this that she's in charge of singer So it's just so apropos for all of the singers in your museum in your archives And by the way mentioning Doctor John I have had a lot of premonitions throughout my life It's really interesting because when they started out at a young age I didn't quite understand them what did they mean What were they about and was I going to listen to this premonition and even later on as the years went by was I going to listen to the premonition and if I didn't what would the end result be and label the law but I had a premonition not to go to the concert in la vie at square when Doctor John was performing And so what I did was I always try to outskirt something So I just did the perimeters of the part and didn't go inside where the persons were all attending the concert But back to New Orleans One of my many trips to New Orleans is a Mardi Gras where I walked up to a fellow because of the way he was dressed And I said why are you all do it up He explained that he was in an incredible front of the line and not the flambe but front of the line Mardi Gras Tuesday parade the next day And that he was a member of the crew the Prince of Wales And I said well I want to find out more about this parade and this group Because my uncle bridge and my route she was the nurse from Alabama a group father doctor Blair They were originators with doing the cruise way back in the very beginning And they had all the priorities in the balls and all the test that goes with being a crew member So I asked him questions Give me some more information about this because I have a kilt the black watch and the chemist enter in the jacket and I've marched in a lot of parades with that gurney days for a Lake villa Saint Patrick's several Saint Patrick Chicago Saint Patrick's Day for it I moved to one of my grandsons Tuesday William butler Ogden descendants So a lot of parades one of the best ones to make the New Orleans is Kenosha civic veterans for rates So that's several times outcome But the information about the Prince of Wales parade is that it started 90 years ago Two fellas Tavern buyer We said we should have a prayer for ourselves And he said well what are we going to call it And he said we're going to call it the Prince of Wales after this battle of Hawaii And this has gone back to 90 years ago Charles and Diana did come to a Prince of Wales parade But the parade started much much earlier And he told me that they have another one in October or they did And I said well I'm coming back for that one I'm going to march in my black watch kilts and Thomas enter the regalia And so and I did And the people in the Louis Armstrong neighborhood they would just bolt out of the doorways like stories tumbling out And they would yell out prints of Wales Prince of Wales and it was just incredible how beloved the Prince of Wales parades was to alcohol it inner city New Orleans And so I know where that was and it goes back I think to the 20s but it was the Prince of Wales social aid and pleasure club And it was usually go by chappa two list and magazine and I guess Louisiana Napoleon on the other in that square And sure usually it was like September October wasn't it No the first part of the year would be fat Tuesday And he was in the front position like right behind the plane bow and the Indian dancers And then he was right up there at the very beginning So they gained a coveted position Tuesday And Mardi Gras Yes But there is But then their second parade is October Yeah so I mean I thought it was I thought it was September October They had that parade And that's the one that goes by The Rock bottom lounge Yeah absolutely And they go past quite a few of the caverns the launches They do do that They have a circuit that they follow as far as these certain locations The suit was something you would find on pulaski and Madison and except it was absolutely gorgeous and the ladies have complementing gowns and large headdresses that they match with it But when I have been at the Irish cultural center many many times for their festival and other times people were staring at me and I went to the lady that sells kilts from Michigan I said can you tell me what this tartness that I'm wearing They're staring at me And she said oh that's the black watch 300 years of the military bravery And I have the women's kill and I found it for revenue in a resale shop in gurney The other things I had gotten in other places that matched it came up in a chemist enter And jacket and luggage and just all kinds of things But he did not know about the black watch So I found it interesting that the parade is an African American parade that they had started for themselves and they named the Prince of Wales Now I think it would be wonderful if Meghan Markle and prince Harry go to the Prince of Wales Either minor or if they're not right they are You got to do the September October 1 That's where they vote on the colors the year before.

"Two months after aitan went missing, the massive search effort had come up with nothing. Not a single clue or lead. Theories were thrown around rumors and possible sightings. My friend Amanda told me. Some people were claiming they had seen him when they hadn't. Others were gossiping, judging his family. There was some talk that he and a friend had been in a lumber store. Then someone claimed to see him on the subway, and that turned into a theory about him going to visit his aunt and queens. According to The New York Times, detective William butler would walk the 400 feet route eitan would have taken to the bus that morning every day back and forth for two hours. Searching for anything that might have been overlooked in the initial sweep. Butler already reportedly interviewed more than 200 people, including a psychic who sent him on a wild goose chase through abandoned buildings and onto a roof with a water tower she claimed he went into. And, along with the 300,000 posters of eitan plastered all over the city, Eton became the first milk carton child. If you were a kid in the 80s, you'll probably remember the ubiquitous milk carton kids. While you were munching away on your frosted sugar cocoa bombs, copyright, Calvin and Hobbes, you were staring into the eyes of a child around your age with the words, have you seen me? Printed underneath, which seems like a great way to be traumatized before Saturday morning cartoons. Something you may have learned about me if you've listened to enough episodes of this podcast is that sometimes I go down rabbit holes once I Google something like milk carton kids. So please enter this rabbit hole with me just for a moment. Before the milk carton initiative, there was no national database of missing children. Needless to say, this made finding lost children. Hard. And if that child had been taken across state lines, you could pretty much forget it. So the milk carton kid initiative started as a way to at least help get the word out. It was mostly unsuccessful, but there was one case in which a mother and stepfather kidnapped their daughter who'd been living with her father and took her across state lines to Colorado. Four years after her kidnapping, she saw her own face on the back of a milk carton in a grocery store. Apparently she was still too young to read, so she didn't realize she was a missing person. I have no idea why she thought her own face was on a milk carton, but here's the craziest part. She showed it to her stepfather who then bought her the carton of milk. And then, when the family finished the milk, he let her keep it. I mean. This is some serious hubris. So she cut the back of the milk carton off and kept it, and then I guess she took it with her wherever she went because she left it along with some toys at a neighbor's house, and when the neighbor saw it, they were like, what the fuck? And called the number under the picture and she was reunited with her father. Holy cats as my son says. The milk carton program sort of faded away partly because the amber alert system was implemented in 1996, but also because doctor Spock, the world famous pediatrician, not mister Spock from Star Trek, was like, this seems like a great way to traumatize children. See, even I knew that, and I don't have a PhD. And then there was the issue that most of the children featured on the milk cartons were white, even though they made up the smallest number of children missing. And I guess, instead of being more inclusive, they were like, ugh, forget it. And they canceled the milk carton child initiative. Anyway, this moment in time catalyzed fear in both kids and parents alike. Here's Amanda again who would have been 9 years old at the time. Most people were freaked out and the adults doubled down on stranger danger. I was terrified. My Friends were terrified. The cops interviewed.

This was well into the nazi campaign for domination. The kidney the persecution of german jews. The annexation of austria had already taken place. These people you do knock trust and the answer to the question is that they had as their the new york times had as their berlin bureau chief probably a possibly the most powerful journalists in europe at the time considering he worked for the new york times as bureau chief out of the place where the war was emanated. This man was named guido. Darris was nazi collaborator. He was working with the nazis. They knew it. The nazis loved him. They would read the new york times reports on nazi broadcasts because they were so favorable to the nazis and when this was brought to the attention of not of the new york times management by a sort of mid level jewish editor in new york. They threatened to sue that editor for libel in the reason. Being was the same one we had just heard about earlier. Which is that. They were getting all the good scoops. They were getting all the best access. Because if you're an american reporter in germany at the time you're kind of considered almost an enemy of the german state unless you're guido embarrassed who is doing. The nazi regime favors left.

"Means the honed of cullen now. I've walked by that many times. I've never really appreciated it. It sort of enlivened your experience when you know the stories. Did you learn that in school. Did your parents teach it to you. Did you read a book. How would you know these kinds of legend. Yes learned it in school. But the eighteen hundreds we had this celtic revival and people like william butler yeats and other great artistic irish people brought these legends back to life in poetry and songs learn about them in school but we also hear about the poems and songs laughing all the time out it so it comes up in your music all the time. Yeah and also our art joe. That was fun to hear stevens. Can i just had the whole kuku. Saga is called the ulster cycle And one of my favorite parts of the cyclists demand of ulster were gathered at a big games The king of ulster boasted loudly that his two horses could outrun anything in the kingdom and one drunken minor chief close by said. My wife could run faster than those so the king made him proves and his life would be forfeit. If the woman didn't win the race fortunately for this man he was married to a woman with a little bit of magic and she won the race but she was also forced to run naked and she was heavily pregnant and when she collapsed over the line having beaten the two horses and saved her husband's life she gave birth to twins who with onto hob legends of their own but a goddess named bucker was looking down she was not happy with the treatment of a pregnant woman so she called a curse on the men of ulster and the course worth that every year for over receivable future for three or four days in a particular mont. The men of ulster would be confined to bed with the pangs of childbirth. So i always got a great reaction from the women under coach. But i was just amazed that you guys both know both of these legends and that right there is just scratching the surface of you. Guys it's a deep appreciation of the history and the heritage in mythology and it goes way back so you do need to have kind of an understanding first of all how far back to those stories go. It's impossible to tell because they were only handed down in an oral tradition. We one of the very influential people in celtic or gaelic society was the storyteller. The bart before Christianity arrived in knowledge that we had no written language. Stories were not written down until the sixth seventh and eighth century and written by monks sometimes with a little bit of embellishment to make it all pre christian. Not right. yeah the fact that they weren't christian obviously dates it a bit at there. Were two thousand years right. Well and in the stories you see a talks about the types of weapons used so there's some bits of contemporary evidence there that would put this to around five hundred busy five hundred. Never take no stephen when we go back to five hundred bc. We have all this movement to people's and just very briefly give us ervin overview got angles saxons and celts. And then he got. Norman's and vikings has just kinda define how all that mixes together. Yes important to say though that the british isles are the british and irish aisles. At this time that we're talking about when cucolo was running around. Were all celtic generally see. That's fundamentally was all celtic and then what happens to celts. Had an empire that stretched from croatia and northern italy. All the way through. France done and to spain an open to britain and ireland. But they didn't have any common king or we were. We were a cultural empire. There was no political empire. Lisa in spain and brittany and france. There are also celtic. Exactly the romans went to war with the celts. Which kelt comes from cal. Toy which is greek for dirty smelly barbarian or something to that effect and they They started crushing us. Sending us into the fringes open to brittany up into galicia that you just said. And then when they cartland into scotland and wales and also cornwall in the south to hang on and they never came to ireland the romans so the celtic culture lived on there whereas in the rest of the countries it became more a fringe clear the romans and and later what are the angles and the saxons. Then they were the germanic tribes. Who came in to britain. After the romans were were the roman. I wish the celts and then the angles saxons took that land that the romans were running after rome fell yes. The celts. don't have a connection to. The romans are to the angles and the saxons germanic so an angles came over and made angle land england. Yes now then you got the normans and you got the vikings. Vikings came first and then the normans. Yes and the normans of course are descended from the vikings who came from scandinavia. Don't into northern france okay so it really that movement from people up in the north that came and they were just warrior tribes and they terrorize and settle different areas. So all that works together today when we want to travel on ireland. Let's just talk about some of the sites. You might see joe. If you're driving around ireland you wanna see different kinds of mysterious sites stonehenge age sites sites that go back to the places stonehenge. We have some remarkable neolithic monuments and our at at the most famous would be new. Grange sony Less than an hour's drive north of dublin. And then and then we we know about stone circles in england in ireland at we have lots of stone circles That i know of one just a small stone circle we know nothing about it or the dentist there outside the town of ken mair well and when you when you travel around dingle peninsula for example one of our favorite places in the southwest of ireland. It's like an open air archaeological museum everywhere. You look. there's these mysterious stone structures that date back to over a thousand years ago in celtic crosses to me are just very evocative. The celtic cross. That's the early christians artem. They used the mythology that was already there and the worship systems that were already there and they incorporated them into christianity on the celtic cross incorporates. The sun a circle into the crucifix. And that's is that a way to make pagan people a little more comfortable with the nabulyato to incorporate they're not necessarily worship song but their belief that the song everything. That's gordon badge. This is travel with rick. Steves were talking about celtic and ancient ireland or guides are joe darcy. Steven mcphillips our phone. Number's eight seven seven. Three three three seven. Four to five and brent is on the phone from columbus. In ohio brent. Thanks for calling one. Thanks for taking my call. Yeah how's your experience in ireland when it comes to You know mysterious spits of the past. Well i'm actually planning a trip to scotland and ireland coming up. And i've read so much about the fairy forts and ferry mounds and some of the ferry gardens and really interested in where i might be able to best experience or see some of that. And how do i respectfully bring that up as a topic. Because i understand there might be some a little bit of some superstition around that and how i bring it up. Might be kind of important stephen. Any thoughts for brent brent. It's good that you've asked the question because there is a little bit of sensitivity around. There's people that you would say. Can you show us where the ferry ford isn't. Everybody will know where the ferry ford is. But not everybody will believe in it but we do have a lot of respect for it. So it's good that you're gonna be sensitive about people will embrace you two and there's people in every parish every village in ireland who happy to take you to the ferry ford or share the legends with you but also tell you the doom that awaits dare you upset the ferry fort because you took me to a place stephen. In dingo were the road was straight and then it actually went around ferry. Ford could have continued to go straight. But you didn't want to disturb it. That's right yeah. And you say that popping up everywhere people changing role directions and not not wanting to cut down hawthorn trees in the middle of a field and certainly not wanting to damage a stolen throat. so brent should say when. He's talking to his irish friend. Excuse me is there. I mean it was rookie to ask for a very fort. Just.

"In connection with the 20th anniversary of the attacks. Mike Mohan has the story. South Dakota's plan isn't getting a lot of attention concerning the events of 9 11, but instead has been met with controversy over the removal of Native American references. On a broader scale education, researchers say incorporating more lesson plans about the attacks has been slow in most states. Carolyn Doug Worth of Florida based professor who has written about the topic says there are some barriers, including teachers needing to stick with what's required to keep test scores up. The whole life of the school is testing and students scores. So if a subject like 9 11 is not indebted in the curriculum, and more often than not, it isn't it can be very, very difficult to carve out any kind of time only 14 states have the subject as part of the required materials. The proposed update from the South Dakota Department of Education does mention 9 11 and events for high school students to learn about. The draft plan, says officials want these grade levels to be more exposed to the more recent decades of U. S history, Backwards says even though it's been 20 years since the attacks on New York and Washington. Still can be emotional for teachers who lived through the experience and for those who do find time to approach the topic. They're navigating a complex and sometimes controversial topic.

Other researchers, including those from the University of Wisconsin, have noted that 9 11 teachings are sometimes oversimplified. And only come up around the anniversary, doctor says. Despite the obstacles, it's important for middle and high school students to dive deeper into the topic need to be able to develop those democratic skills of critical thinking and debate. She says.

You might stand training vanilla season as well. The look at them a grid on prices in germany but always watch once you capture. Group wants group the away. That's that's the key thing in when you have one than is you know you're often looking for the weakest group three or group through. You can guess. But once she wants to make the breakthrough you can only stay about level or step up. So she's one night so it's group wants all the way. Speaking of group owns all the way as we return to home soil. When i say home soil. I mean aren't and If you're in the uk and the vast majority of the listeners are because population is bigger When things are safe come on over come on over the hospitality Particularly in the southeast and The west of ireland is just.

There's a lot to be excited about irish. Mp weekend it's going to be fantastic government. Please do not do anything stupid. the phoenix sprint stakes. Just briefly touch on this. John joe murphy is going to be sending gustavus western. Sounds very german to the haydock sprint cup. Where he will do something that no ours done since one thousand nine hundred seventy to win the race. What's his chances on the basis of this victory in the group. Three rory What is this was a career. Best from him and he some. He's say suddenly improved but he has. He's some run too much higher level last. The last few runs He's ever done before. Which i guess is the definition of a southern improvement. Listening is report as a juvenile But he you know like a lotta A lot of sorts printing juvenile's. He seemed to tread water then for For while after that On some seem to find his level which was basically sort of a listed company. Another ahoy pop up you know he would run these races but he wouldn't say wouldn't spend too much time thinking about him but all of south needs He's looking One of the best friend not less. So that's some that's a three nonsense saw since may He finds plenty for pressure on both occasions Certainly he certainly was. Well positioned the way this risk went but then again you know he's also wanna buy them by decent margin So it can be an advantage to get on the got on the real. The curragh was the previous meeting He's not normally a front runner either but he he got it all running on. He was better. physicians The up for example. But he's well it won't by two and a quarter lengths which i need you and a half in the end an alluded through the rest. You think well he's not. He's not beating absolute superstars and behind their.

The video shows her going into an unnamed store with her son which is unfortunate. because i'm sure her her son is going to pick up on some of this behavior. I mean we can hope that.

Politics is creating huge tensions between people. Catholics brutally disparage one another on social media and other internet sites simply because they disagree. What a shameful scandalous example.
