You're need some type of blade or knives michetti cutting-edge zan greg your website and some of the projects have seen you speak for yourself in the lines that you design in your lawns and i think that's one of the key things of aesthetically pleasing garden or landscape is to have those really nice lines in your sod and you don't have to try to lay on that line. You can layover and come back in pain. What do you do in your landscape greg. Do you paint those lines. And then cut that back out or how do you typically lay around those thanks john.

If you have a plant that matures at two feet wide from the center of the plant then place the bed line at a minimum of three feet from the center of the plant when marking straight or cover linear lines.

You can fit them and a lot of places. But yeah like i said. I'm not using this really offensively unless i'm going for a hail. Mary strategy is really to make your opponent respect. And deploy stuff further back. And if you if you don't have any intelligent place ambush them just ambushed them in on in your backfield or on one of the sideboard edges. Because they can come on from any board edge so your opponent and do the battle tactic. Just get your free exactly two points. You do need to bring them on. I turn so usually wanna take.

The Irony of Joe Biden's Human Infrastructure Agenda
"And so we have, uh Not just left American citizens overseas. The New York Times says. We have no idea how many green card holders there are in the right. We've now dehumanized everybody.

"zan" Discussed on The Propaganda Report
"Four million healthcare workers like just think of how lopsided that is like how much government there is in california so california's people working government have to get vaccinated and tested but eighty five percent of them are vaccinated so that's three hundred thousand unvaccinated people getting tested at of that group. There's one point. Four million healthcare workers. Same thing seventy five percents of vaccinated three hundred fifty thousand unvaccinated getting tested like twice a week. There are only two hundred and eighty thousand tests today so like a big portion of those people are unvaccinated people who are going to work as cinematic and none of them are vaccinated people who are going to work and are symptomatic. Wouldn't that also suggest that since the unvaccinated people are getting tested and not going to work if they test positive and the that people are not getting tested would would that not suggest that the one spreading it are the vaccinated people. That's a great point. A really great point. The only people i know who have it who've got recently been fully vaccinated as a matter of fact i was in saratoga. That was one of the things. I did on my vacation. Go to the races and saratoga. 'cause mom likes that some sitting in the bar as one does the horseshoe and it was like the only one at the bar i just. It was raining track. So i'm watching the races on tv and they show a memorial to a cameraman saratoga racetrack hammer man. About forty one years old. The guy zan was hat maker. And i and he said succumbed to covet left two or three little kids. And what do i do even on vacation. You're not the super computer. And i just typed in his name and wrote fully vaccinated and of course he was so they call it a covert death. But i you know. How can you not be at least a little hesitant. Was such blatant manipulation of data happening. I'm not even saying that i. I'm not even commenting on the science. Whatever they wanna call it just a blatant manipulation alone should make. You paul's makes me paul's anyway.

And if things start light for any reason they're at set an and these people so i have learned. I haven't always known this are usually very vulnerable to the preacher. Like when you get a new preacher in. They're the people that make sure that they stop by and meet the peach preacher and let him know what they expect. And then you've got the other little group that pop zan and let them know what they should and shouldn't talk about. And then you've got the groups that come through and says well we don't care if you breach little longer than that but we gotta beat the baptist to the diner at for lunch so you can't go past this mark and that's really pushing it so you know this is extremely eye opening and what it does for me is. It makes me long to be a part of a congregation. That's about the relationship and not about the time. Because i already want that. The problem is how do you get it. How do you. Because i don't literally mean how you get it because we're gonna talk about that in the book but you know how again it and making it happen and the timeframe in there is huge. And i think don't you think part of it is that everyone has to understand that you have to be in agreement. Yeah i know that. When i went to a church in plano when we lived in in another town in i went to church there. Mafia ended up. We stayed until way after dark talking and you know just walking through thanks let our kids play in fact the the deacon that was over the bill falling out a ski he was like. Here's the code.

If it's if a lot of people stay someone's gotta stay locked up the building or you have to trust people that this place that you are bell shipping at you know is going to allow you to stay there and trust you to stay there and not do anything in I think it's been hard for me. Because i wrote in charge like literally immature Building and so running around the church building is normal for me. When i was teaching a couple years back to church is my house. I love to be in church. And i love to be there even when the no-one's there i mean just going in in eli our friends. You know i would just go up there and hang out and talk.

You will thank you very much for having me that happy to be here with your love talking about this topic and all the other dharma that i know you and i might share wonderful and so i thought you know you've had a long history with the insight tradition and i was wondering how you You know. I got into practicing in that tradition. Well it's kind of a long story. I started off reading about buddhism. And i bought my first book on buddhism when i was sixteen years old i knew nothing about it. I was in the middle of the country growing up in a suburb of missouri. And for some reason. I picked up this book in a bookstore called the way of sam. I alan watts. I didn't read it right away. But when i got into college in all these kind of new ideas were floating through the counterculture and i got interested in started reading what i could find and mostly at that time it was about Zan by alan watts of dt suzuki.

"zan" Discussed on Architecture Today
"Number of images that we used when we were trying to get to grips with the character what we wanted to produce that. We're not actually building so a bits of buildings or signs or in particular that they the lobster the connected material apart from the full show and the character of the place owner saying not are painted wolves so this this buildings top but a lot of the water and You know so. That's the that's the character that we began to kind of discovered the it wasn't just the listed buildings were highlighted by those dependent. Place how then do you make a building that encapsulates or imbues qualities which includes than lobster pots in the black painted. Little building back by the way shouldn't have been grey. It should be black but the conservation of just wouldn't have freaked him out too much even that you can point to other black buildings because it made for him to stark contrast. My thought is that you can make a condensation like an extreme genius loci concentration. What zan which makes you then look at. What's what your what's around you because it startling black a strange color in any context for conservation officers even when actually in a rural Small town context. It's the most familiar color of all. I mean this context plans everywhere. We did a black bond. Propose the black extension to a building. And i remember the planning officer and the Someone on the planet committee set. I looked at this. And i thought who could do that to a building and of course you know people have been doing that to a building for hundreds of years. Let's also talk a little bit about the familiar. And i think one of the other things that i'm really interested in the language of modernity is how we deal with familiar and i remember when i went to your house first. What's extraordinary about is again. The fine line between what's familiar and what's unfamiliar and you know what i like about. Your house is that a door is still do. An window is still a window and a skirting still cursing and the language of modern architecture..
Chris Ives: Meditations on the Trail
"Suzanne on the trail meditations on the trail. Your books with wisdom have focused around the connection between nature and spirituality. And so i was thinking we could start with you know when full you because you've trained in zen tradition and you have this law of hiking and being in nature win for you. Did these to come together. I think it happened. Probably back when. I was in college in the nineteen seventies and started sittings ause in in many ways in the zone on the trail book partly. What i'm doing is not just thinking about hiking. In sort of a zen mode not just thinking about traditional religious pilgrimage relative. The backpacking is kind of pilgrimage. But in part what. I was doing in. That book is trying to get clear for myself in my late fifties early sixties. When i was working on the book what are the connections between my practice zan. From the time. I was a college student seventies. And what i do when i'm out hiking in part of that was thinking about how growing up as a kid in rural connecticut. The son of scoutmaster spending a lot of time with my brothers just playing in the woods with my dad and the boy scouts hiking. How my love of being out in the woods. Hiking fishing goofing around may have made me in a sense predisposed to resonate with certain aspects of zen when i first encountered the tradition as a college student and so partly what i was doing in the book is looking at how my upbringing my love of the woods of new england spending so much time outside may have had me resonate with zen and then going the other direction partly. What i'm doing in that book is thinking about how over the years my practice of zen might time in japan going to a lot of sacred mountains japan which usually involved hiking how that experience may have influenced how i hike later in life

The Importance of Finding Zen In Everyday Life
"Live in a fast paced overburdened. Overworked and jam-packed culture. We work long hours to make more money to buy more things to clutter of our houses. We always time with unnecessary correspondents social media notifications and getting stuck in traffic. We feel like we're on this. Never ending. Treadmill to nowhere feeling disconnected and frazzled. Each and every day we're sleep deprived overweight and stressed out when all we really want is to get some zen so does living a life of zen look like traditionally the word zan has been associated with the quiet and austere buddhist sect which emphasizes silent meditation and personal inquiry however as the word has leashed into modern everyday. Life is evolved to mean something less esoteric and more practical. You don't have to become a monk to be then but will probably require some major life changes since we can all agree that today's world is decidedly nonsense in essence. Dr zan is all about spaciousness intention in peace and we can apply this wisdom to every aspect of our lives while somewhat challenging to define exactly. What zen is is easy to notice when something isn't then a cluttered workspaces not zen. A overpacked schedule is not zan. A phone or tablet that has constantly chirping and buzzing is definitely not zen. Chances are good that you can recognize things in your life. I give you that calm. Spacious feeling you can also feel when you lose. Sight of it is he. Zen is something that already exists. Innately within us we are born in perfect peace maddie's with our world and with ourselves but as grow up and take on the burdens of the world we lose touch with our inner nature however all is not lost. Don't worry we can all make deliberate and mindful choices to get rid of some of the clutter. Be that physical mental or emotional in regain our zan
"zan" Discussed on Schoolhouse Rocked: The Homeschool Revolution!
"The state supreme court there were like a dozen states waiting in the wings to implement this front end. Credentialing that you had to pass a test for freeze at homes. So what happens in one state matters whether you live in that. I mean because that homeschooling regulation is coming to us. They near you. A you know if we're not on. Our abraham lincoln said it is so true. We're gonna hang together or we're gonna hang separately knows we've got to hang together fit together To to do this yep so to clarify a little bit albion. I want you to jump in on state organizations because you talked about state organizations and for those maybe who are new to the podcast because we have a lot of listeners Maybe those who have heard it but they just need a reminder abby water state organizations and and you're 'cause you're on the board of homeschool idaho you and your husband jesse right so then then hid it pretty well. State organizations are the the gatekeeper and every almost all the majority of states do have a day organization and they are watching. What's going on as far as bills. That are coming through as far as threats to our home school freedom. And they're they're they're on the frontlines so They also in most states are the very people that brought us from wears on was the threat of being jailed. Or in the state of idaho that there were parents actually jailed to the place that we are now. Where in all fifty states We are free to homeschool so it is. It is crucial that we support those states and again legs and said maybe not everybody is out there on the front lines or but you said before yvette when people look at van. It's she was home schooling three kids simultaneously while she was doing all of this and so so many like man. I can't even get through my home school day. Let alone all these things. But i don't think We're not called to do it all but what we've learned in in this series as they anez even though we're not called to do it all we are called to do what god has asked us to do with our all with one hundred percent of who we are. And if you are a parent you are called to teach and train your child up in the lord. You are called to be their primary educator your call to be a apparent and in that that means you are called to defend the freedom to do so because the truth is they're coming after our kids and we need to be on together and we need to stand strong like the zan tyler's And and those that have gone before us and Get involved with your state organization and that might just simply mean send an email to say. How can i help. How can i can. I lick stamps. I mean everybody can extend on sticky already abby utah. I think that if anything anybody has learned anything our freedom isn't free and we didn't get to where we were by people doing nothing and so it is important that we are doing something that we are actively fighting and defending the freedom that have already been fought for we cannot be complacent and and i think that It would do such a dishonor to those that have gone before us for us to just sit in our houses and assume that this is how it's going to remain. We need to be on the front lines and More than being on the front lines. We need to be our knees because as we've learned in this story god is sovereign and he is he. He's he has a plan and he's going to do. Here's the deal. God's going to do the heavy lifting as we've heard in this story but we need to be willing to say yes. We need to be willing to show up. Even if we're in our blue jeans and our ponytails or in bed saying i'm gonna stay in bed three days in the phone call rings you know we need to say yes and show up and then we need to get on her knees and pray and then watch god do the heavy lifting. Because he's going to do it but let's show up. So and in that prayer ask the lord how he can use you. You know we are. We are fighting a real battle. And there's a real enemy for the souls of our children and they will do anything and everything we've seen that happen in the in the past we've seen it happen in all of history but we've seen in the past year that we have a real enemy horse. They're fighting hard to get to our kids and if we don't do something then we have no right to say anything when that freedom could be taken away and not take it for granted. Quit anything is do not take it for granted. Let's do something if you're doing nothing like that. Said you can't then complain when random mediums were taken and let's show honor and thankfulness for those that have gone before us by carrying the torch. Aw you know what i mean. We've got children and we've got grandchildren and we cannot just assume it's going to stay the way it is. So so let's rise up in and be the zan tyler's and gary this past the torch on. Yep that's right there's something and we will put I'll put the link in the show but so that you know if you go to the schoolhouse rock website on the top banner. You'll see homeschooling in your state. If you click on that that will take you to the home school freedom website and that website will all you have to do is click on your state and that will take you straight your own specific state organization so you can find out exactly who they are you. Don't we've done all the research where you've got all the links cliques and stuff therefore you find out who your state organization is and then san really quickly. I want you to talk you. You mentioned it already. Hsl da for those. Who don't know is the home school. Legal defense association in a quick nutshell. Tell us who they are. And then how we can get involved and partner with hsl da. You can join healthy. I think it's one hundred and fifteen dollars a year If you had to pay an attorney that's like a third of an hour. Oh sure i'm but but they work with eight leaders around the country to ensure freedom they're taking things to court. I mean like the state organizations or the boots on the ground and they're like the air force that comes in and big picture and what lawsuits need to be answered or file or what. parents needs to be protected. So it just gives us an added measure. these are all constitutional lawyers and litigators. And it's in there all homeschool ads and it's just it just is. It's the largest tom. Skilling or in the world and it gives us a presence in d. c. it gives us a presence and the supreme court. If we needed it gives us a presence and in circuit courts are in state courts all.
"zan" Discussed on Schoolhouse Rocked: The Homeschool Revolution!
"If you missed parts one and two of our conversation with san you are definitely going to want to go back and listen to those She has such an incredible story. About what the lord is has done through her life In providing the freedom that she had to be able to homeschool her kids. And you have that freedom as well because of people like zan and so we. Well i shouldn't say that because of the lord and what the lord has done through people like sam so i wanna kind of Tie up your story. And then i wanna talk a little bit about School freedom and what that means for us today and what we need to continue to protect that freedom So so kind of jump into maybe a the the later years. How did this all end with your fight. Four homeschool freedom. Well we had that first public hearing like we said didn't do anything then we had the senate hearing And they tore up those regulations. And i just remember at that point. I thought that was kind of being thought. That was the end of the legislative story. Now we don't have this these bad regulations than we'll just go back to the bad miss that we had for that that one is bad as they have an so. I told my husband. He took off three days from work. And i was so tired i lost the baby. You know i've been threatened shale. Been out i was just physically and emotionally spent a said. I wanna stay in my bed for three days. Don't don't let anybody in room. I just wanna read my bible. I wanna sleep. I want to read a good book. And so the next morning at nine he came and woke me up and i said Women didn't you not get any fan. You need to talk this person. This is david beasley. I'm david was a young legislator and he he was in the legislator legislature. A little bit before i started lobbying but he was elected as a college student and so we just kind of grew up together now. He went on to become governor of south carolina and he recently just won the nobel peace prize while his work in in running. An international organization is a real community league and Do you talk today. But he's got something to say he said san which it meet me down here at the state department today or the state house today. I'm gonna file georgia legislation. Which is if you know anything about george or you have to is the intent rape superintendent and we had a. We had a substantial equivalents. While they could approve or not approve it was just the winner of the school board and the local school board. So i went down with david. You know i'm so naive. I'm thinking this is so bad this time next year all our lawsuit way. We'll have this. Georgia law will get a call two days later from the chairman of the senate education committee garrison and he said. I'm saying this may work in georgia. This is not working here. I am going to appoint you as part of an ad hoc committee to draft homeschooling legislation. That will work to make long story short. We ended up with this law that required seven things from you. They couldn't reject the curriculum. If you showed you had it so we just wanted to make sure that all you had to have a half full the phone where you can use any curriculum you wanted. Those are two hills tada okay but they wanted you know standardized testing four and a half hours a day. Hundred and eighty days had have library that you know just own and on and on and But we got the two things we wanted and that was always a get out the committee so we actually spent two years lobby or year and a half lobbying for that the last day of the session. The house Amended it to say you had to pay making passing for the so technical. The triple e. exam if you don't have a college degree that meant all of a sudden. Everybody passed it because they were sick of fooling with us If you didn't have a college degree you had to make a passing score on the test. Thank you juniors and college. Who wanna be teachers. Wow so all of a sudden are lawsuits. Don't just go away right. They triple. I mean it's exponential and so the law calls more problems than it created and that's when i got to know mike farris. We sort of became friends through this last of this. And so you know then like in nineteen eighty nine Might fierce flew down. One of our board members went with me by this time. David beasley as chairman house. Education does no mike harris's h. l. d. a. Just yes sorry. oh yeah. He was the founder and president of the day in day out. He's the ceo of atf. American alliance defending okay insana. So we're having this big legislative committee and david beasley said. Say nothing. we can do this with a technical amendment. We think it's going to be one and done. And he's going to get in there and it's gonna be great so two or three months later. He was at the some big republican dinner and my friends family and said san. We can't take your bill this year. We've got borsch. We've got an antiabortion law. We can't handle all these emotional christian things in one session. So you know i just went home and really i just cried my eyes out. I felt like it was narnia. It was always winter but never christmas. Yeah and said the only time i ever clean off. My desk is when i'm really depressed. And so you know my desk is like overflowing with all these papers and i found A suggestion from an attorney that i had worked with in those early days. He said saying you need to set up an organization Like the private school accrediting organization count home scores private schoolers and go for it. Yeah though i called mike at night call mike that night late. Like eleven or midnight or something i said. Do you think this will work. He said yep. Call me in the morning. We actually setups organization. That joe and i started south. Carolina says independent home schools as As a an organization similar skis and we would credit homeschool. Were like they were private schools so we got some traction on that we had one hundred and twenty brave families come on board with us and all the private school people. I met without so careful to meet with all of our friends and tell them what we were doing so nobody was taken by surprise and i can garner support because we needed support outside the huntsville schooling community. We didn't have a big on schooling nudity and So i had really done my homework and done all of that and they said then we keep your test scores. Your test scores will be great hustlers. Two well you've probably got two years Well three months later. Fourteen of our families in one school district were threatened with truancy.

"With zan tyler and talking about her amazing journey at the lord set her on. How many years ago is that thirty. I can't count. Oh my goodness. I don't think should ask you. That does make me demand. I think be you like math. Figure that out anyway. Y'all don't don't ask me to do. Math on the podcast. Thirty seven thirty seven years so that is quite a journey so so we kinda laughed off at you not really having a vision for your kids to home. School them it. You're trying to get that first year. With your oldest. Yes that's right. And then what did the lord do after that. After you were threatened with jail time you finally got the thumbs up the okay to homeschool. It wasn't just moved sailing. No not know. It's interesting at the end of their first year. I looked at joe. And i said you know. This is in such an awful year in terms of air. Everything going around but what's happened in our home has been so significant house. Stay at home mom before my kids were in preschool days. Not even day but it you know it was just. There was such a huge difference in our family. Life in the way tie was learning. And i it was powerful. What joe i said you know sorta like to do. This may be one more year like god. Maybe columnist to do this one year and he wouldn't have yeah. I was kind of afraid of that. Here we go again. He goes a workshop Called confessions of homeschool dad know what to do. When you think your wife is crazy. And then. And then he just of courses come the biggest supporter in an happiest ever of schooling. But so we did and we We started off fairly normally this year. This is our second year. We were approved to homeschool without all the terrifying nonsense surrounded are surrounding it and then one night it was either in late november early december. I'm a night owl and so the kids would go to bed. And then when i would staff and right and prepare lesson plans and you know try to make sense of what was going on with our schooling Still no role models out there. For us i get this. Knock on the door. I mean it was close to midnight and you know your first thought when you get a midnight knock is. Police is the who is and i opened. The door is a neighbor from around the country around the corner. His son was one of my son's best friends and on his wife was a teacher in public schools. And he said he knows and we love you. We really kind of hate homeschooling. But we love you in southern or something. And i need to tell you he said. Do you know what the state register is. I said no. He was the head of a state agency. professionally and he said any time. Somebody wants to pass a law in a state agency. They can put it in the state register. And if it sits there for ninety days without any action or anybody objecting it matt becomes law in that crazy so he said i was going through the state register and i came across these guidelines that the state department of education is promulgating which will become law. If you don't do something about it. And they were requiring bet That home schoolers have a four year college degree in only use as a pretext mile. So that that meant no christian. Chris wong nobody Who'd been in college. Two years or hostile graduate could home school. And so. I mean. I'm looking at this and i think works when i'm going to do with this. Joe and i had been amassing a little bit of a database on our tandy one thousand which was cutting edge and just names of people who had even heard of home schooling. You know people all these educational advocates. Were calling us from around the country. Now how they got my my name pre internet days. I have but so i'm at accumulated this list of like four hundred names which seems huge which saints huge. At the time. I could have could have counted the number of home schoolers. New onto hands and So i called my turney and he said saying you've got to the only way to stop. This is to request public hearing on these regulations. And you've got to get twenty five letters in to the state superintendent of education to accomplish that joe and i got out our first homeschool letter at the bottom. I mean the technology today is carbon. And i said you know so. Please send your letter requesting this public hearing in. Send me a copy. So when we get a twenty five sure aca over a hundred well and it didn't matter if they were from out of state. These were just letters from these. Were just letters letters. And i'm sure twenty five of those had to be incite but we've had. We had that you know we had that issue number at least evidently and And so we We called the first public hearing when the state. And so you know it's interesting. The lord works. Because i was pregnant with our third child during this time and i lost the baby when i was about six months pregnant and almost died saw in the hospital for several days and while we were in the hospital we got the notification from the state department of education that they were calling for this public hearing and giving me like sixty days to get the names of people who would speak so later. I was trying to pull together. Some archives. And i found the yellow legal pad that joe and i had used to make notes in the hospital. And they're just all tiers thing. Why so you know how you just have these like the memories of being threatened with jail that that memory of losing joy and hauling us bat week the plane in the public hearing. I mean it just just those things the hard thing the lord call she to and yet he gives you the grace. Yeah so we had We the the one man who dealt with me. The state department of education told me we had twenty minutes. Dr moore was coming out to speak as our expert witness. Thank washington the man that you said. You'd never read his book right so we weren't connected yet with h. l. d. a. in this business nineteen eighty six so he said he would fly out but we still had all these. I mean this is just costing a lot of money state organization. We've had legal fees were living on one income and your mom your ordinary. Stay at home mom. And so you know dr more comes down. My dad got involved. He knew the chairman of the curriculum. Instructional committee That was in charge of it. And he said you know he called me up on their forget hayward mcdonald commie up and he says and you can have all day if you want to. Everybody who wants to speak. We'll speak we'll listen you know and i'll never forget that day because we just had such glorious day of people speaking dr more. Was there all these homeschool parents. I was meeting for the first time. And they were speaking and people were just coming up and handing me checks and cash Wow and by the end of the day. I had enough money to pay the honorarium his airfare. You know it was really amazing to watch now. The state department of education said we really don't care what you have to say these these regulations.

"It just so grateful that my kids weren't gonna be removed from my home. You know so so. It was really. God's grace cuts rice at that time. Because i mean you still had quite a journey ahead of you. Yeah fighting for freedom which we're going to talk about But at that time did you just think okay done over with i'm free. I can home-school now or did you have any idea that you would be facing the road that you are about to to jump on zero idea at. I'm so thankful for To the lord that he did not let me see that yeah. I mean we had crazy things happen that year. Nobody was happy with us for home schooling but it beat going to jail all facing from neighbors and everybody else. I just kept saying you know this base jail. yes and But we had crazy things. Like i would get calls just random calls from people soliciting information over the phone and i told ya said our lawyers in school district people trying to get me. He said as Paranoid but we got this thing from bell south and before cell phones all of that it was called tracing service. That was an exorbitant. Amount of money. Let me just do it for a month and sure enough. I started columbine people who was holiday Just called me. Oh no we didn't call you. You did it right here. You know so you know. Policemen we lived on requirement will call the fact. See a policeman rod up and down our roads several times a week. I'm just checking to make sure we were home in school so there was that type of thing but nothing that would give me any indication that worse was coming as a matter of fact we were just homeschooling that first year to get ready for school. You know when. I hear Veteran homeschool moms talk about the new mothers coming into the movement now and how they have they just don't have a vision for homeschooling. Say death may be no. I had zero vision for homeschooling except for helping my child get ready for school. And so i think we just have to be patient with people in the war gives vision or gives vision we walk alongside people and hold them and hug them and bless them and and hopefully from our lives gain vision but but i think sometimes we expect too much soon away when you jumped in when you when you sat before the superintendent needs to. Then you're going to just have to put me in jail. That was not a you. Have this vision to home school. Your kids through twelfth grade. That was just this year like this year. Yes yes and now. I really you know i just knew that god was calling me to do this on my goodness. If you had told me that people home schooled in high school. I remember the first time i went to a national hung school. Leadership conference I can't remember exactly how my kids were. They were probably second third grade. And i met these haskell kids. I mean there were great. They were everything he would want your kids to be at a i. I know i mean. I just know i'm looking at my picture and i'm saying were teas- please tell me people don't do this in high school. Lisa made from this thought you know eared needed death. You just take a step by step and as an end you know. I just wanna add this one little caveat because we think sometimes we have to give lectures which i do around the country but Have to give people a full blown view of what god's doing i'll never forget the The chairman of the education department at columbia babble college. Now see i had her. Phd in education at from the university of tennessee was she came this columbia bible college and she heard about me. She contacted me and she said she'd been on the mission field forever. She said. I just want to take you out for supper. And we're in this little cheap talion restaurant and she reaches over and she holds my hand and she said you know what you can quit worrying because god is in this and he is bigger than all your problems and he can solve this this his mission you just get on board and lot signed him and you know as silly as that sounds i mean i just sometimes i would say to myself i mean. I felt like gideon every day off groundhog day. All over again. We're doing this. If i'm sure this from you but how do i know that this isn't my crazy over active nation and win worrying took me out and she said god is in this in. This is bigger than you. Some how that one statement changed my life and begin to grow my vision. So it's not that we need to spend hours and hours with people. i think we just need to stake. A you. Know the nature of god in the hope of the gospel and Give people a bigger vision of god and then he begins to work the other visions into our lives that he wants us to walk through and live out. I think that is. I mean that is so encouraging because i think sometimes as homeschool moms We we need of the ten year plan right. We need the owner of the ten year plan. We're gonna fall apart and it just. It reminds me of when when we pray were pray. Give us this day our daily bread and when you sat there and you all. You're thinking is. I want to do what's best for my child today this year and and god saw the next thirty years and he saw the whole story and he even saw that. Now we're living in a time where we're going through some similar things where many of us feel alone in their home school through freedoms being threatened and i'm hearing for moms that are very fearful of that and and yet all you did not share thinking today. This is my plan and guide new and watch san in thirty years. I'm going to use this. You know but it's such an encouragement to those of us. That are still in it saying. I don't need the tenure. I don't need the i've your plan. I need to know that today. I need to do what's best for my child no matter what the cost you know and god is going to give me today. The daily bread to do it. So that's that's no power on encouraging. Thank you for. Sharing is a faithful faithful. God we're out of time for this episode.

Sam i know your family. You know you love your child. So let's see how we can solve instead. He says if you continue down this path act have you put in jail for truancy. Wow and you know. I can close my eyes. That was nineteen eighty four so it was a fall ago. I can close my eyes in still seek where i was sitting where he was sitting how i felt the total fear for a second that just grit and then i heard this person say well got away. She'll just have to put me in jail. And i realized it was myself and But i really felt like that was my. I'm not sound melodramatic. But my patrick henry. Moment where i realized i know course what others may take but as for me give me liberty or give me the anna and i you know i knew that was mama moment so were i had to decide. I mean god brought that decision to me. I didn't go out seeking that by any means. And i was shocked but then i felt like the spirit was there with me. Now says about what you're gonna say when you're confronted with leaders persecuting. You prosecuting me. So i left. I went out at my parents house. My parents were very involved in the columbia south carolina that he was several boards. And i thought it when jail next week might wanna say homeschool moms and talladega jail sensei. John peters daughter goes to jail. So i went by until my parents Just have always wondered what. I knew nothing about home schooling and i'm telling them i'm gonna home school and And i'm an at this point. I'm hysterical mom and dad. I'm schooling tied. Adds lawyer here on my legal briefs. Mom here's my research. Which was a little pamphlet. You know about three inches. I mean three pages on homeschooling in left and was their response to you when you said that to them Well they're trying to assimilate had always been a little bit of a maverick in terms of decision had made in life. You know and But they they trusted me. They knew how much i love. My kids mom thought will. If i had two or three kids to teach what a great teacher i would be. And how much would my kids learn. My father was just furious. Had been treated that way by people. He knew sure so. He didn't care anything about homeschooling but he wasn't going to stand by and watch me treated that way and so really In a world gone crazy where only my husband supported me. My mom and my dad Really walked that pack with me. And you know. I learned such a less from about taking your adult kids. Were they are and supporting them in their callings. No matter how outrageous ridiculous it seems that the time you know and because it was really it was really at times. The only thing that saw me through. I mean besides god's zadok made that but you know my dad. I need to write a book. That dad and Political favors he called in things he did. It was pretty amazing while. Hey let's take a quick break. We'll be right back in. Continue with this story learning to write well. In order to effectively communicate. Ideas can be a challenge for many students equipping teachers and teaching parents with methods and materials which will aid them in training their students to become confident and competent communicators and thinkers is key. The institute for excellence in writing is an organization dedicated to training mentoring and providing a model for teachers in a clear sequential and effective method of teaching writing that reinforcements history science literature and other content areas. Our methodology begins with dictated content. So rather than sing to a child. Here think of something and learn to write. We actually give them.

Well students learn how to think clearly and to express themselves eloquently and persuasively for more information or to order the program visit i e w dot com. We are back with zan and you were telling us about yet. You had gone to your parents house and told them of all the things you basically go in jail so from there. What happened well. My dad was speaking two nights later at a baptist hospital function and a us senators wife to there that i had worked for in high school. And he said you know. Nancy van is called the senator's office no result. And i need to know what he's gonna do for her now. So she called the senator's office. He actually flew down from washington. Today's letter later cloud and met with the state superintendent on my behalf and said basically ma staff has done the research. What she's doing is legal. I recommend that you bring for them. And so it was really. I just never saw that coming from the time. I was threatened with jail. It was a very real threat. It wasn't just wannabes. Cavalier statements And so i just. I couldn't believe it so i began getting calls from people at the state department. Mrs tyler how are you today. come on down here. We're going to help you fill out your application for their halls and we want you to come to the meeting on tuesday. Everything's gonna be fine.

"I am so excited that you joined us again today with another exciting episode of the podcast. I am back with abby and do we have a fantastic guest on today. Her name is zan. Tyler i know that many of you have heard of her. You've maybe heard her speak at a convention that you've been at Maybe you have picked up. One of her books is gone. You've been you've been around the block a couple of times when it comes to home schooling and so you kind of just a few times you don't look like you have me but But yeah got his enemies. Thanks to your so we are so thrilled to have you on with us today. And today we're gonna talk about trust. I was talking to a mom a couple of weeks ago. We had dinner with a couple and she. She just looked at me in the eyes she said. How are you handling everything. That's going on right now. She said i'm freaking out. She's i'm just so overwhelmed. Everything that's happening. I'm worried for my kids. I'm worried for my family. And she's like. I just feel like i can't let down and i'm just constantly kind of state of fear and i said i get it. I get it. The last year has been beyond overwhelming In a million different ways and at the same time we've been able to see the hand of god move in ways that that we would maybe not have seen him move and then there are also areas. That i know that many of us are like oh cape god. Where are you halloo. Hello hello and we just recently. We did another episode with rachel carmen where we talked about rest for the weary mom and so this is kind of a follow up almost hit that we. We're going to talk about trust in zan. You have a pretty incredible testimony. And you've been on the podcast before but we're going to kind of go back again because we have so many new listeners. Who really need to hear your story. And with covid that has kind of jumped into the middle of our life. Since you've been on the podcast. I want you to talk about your journey. What the lord has done through you and n you and just bring some some hope to as mamas and and just show us where we can go in scripture to find the hope. That only comes from christ. But i i would love it if you had introduced us to yourself and to your family. Okay well as you said. My name is santa. Eyler we home schooled for twenty one years and started in nineteen eighty four so when we began home schooling. We didn't know a person in the world who was home schooling so there were no support groups no state organizations a to sell the thank had started on the west coast but it wasn't national in scope. So we were pretty alone Just in terms of talking about koga little bit you we feel like we're in exile In the covid world theft. How i felt when we first started home schooling because we had no friends no support brave and not only that but people at church would not fake to us. People in our neighborhood would keep their kids from with us. Our kids is so it was it was really a little bit. Like being an exile. And i'll tell you unless we learn how to shelter in place in jesus We lose our power strength really quickly so now my kids are grown. They have children of their own. Their home schooling. The ones that are school age am are so so. It's been quite the journey. We were the thing. I didn't say is we were threatened with jail when i'm began home schooling so the first eight years we home school we were either in the legislature or import. You know fighting hard for humps go freedom. So it's been my journey after like the lord has called us to homeschool and continues to call me to be involved with homeschooling moms and families. Because i believe this is kingdom work I believe that what we're doing. Main teaching spelling and math and stem courses olive. That is important but the eternal work. We're doing Is building the kingdom of god and a love for the kingdom of god and kids aim and so you you talked about having been having been threatened with jail time take us back a little bit to that journey that you are on and unpack that for us because that's a pretty crazy story okay. It is a crazy story so we we had our six year old. Who was bright and gary and a boy and he was the only kid has kindergarten class. Not reading while. I didn't know then that was normal. I mean there's two things i said. I would never do in life. When i was college in college was taken the other was have kid like lesson number one for me. Maybe as never tell. God what you're not gonna do And then And then we can be surprised when he calls you to do that. The greatest thing in your life So so anyway. So so back to that early. Time of home schooling. We a friend of mine said saying you need to homeschool best the answer to your problem. She was ten years older than may. Add tyrod after graduating from college so when he was six i was twenty eight dollars a relatively young mom. You know all my friends with kids that age in their thirties and she said she gave me this book. Homegrown kids about your more. And i am reading this book. When when she said the word home school. I felt like i was in the star wars movie in the trash compactor. You know her. Osborne couldn't get out of there quick. But i started reading this book and it was just like the holy spirit was just wooing my heart toward the addy of home schooling and so we originally were just going to hold back a year and at the last minute possible. The school district named on their offer to toll tap that meant all of a sudden. Private schools are filled. Because it's early summer we can't put time kindergarten. I'm not gonna put him in. I spray and i've been wrestling with this idea with or over. Homeschooling in nineteen eighty-four noble. People didn't do it. People who lived in backwards in mississippi that didn't use money and were bartering. That was the only story. I had ever heard hooley So i was kind of running away from that fast as i could and So so we had to hire an attorney just to find out what the law was because nobody at our local school board or state department of education would tell us what the law was and so we hire an attorney found out. The law turned in an application. I mean i felt like i had written a doctoral dissertation chain tation. It was so long. Al complied with every jot and tittle of the law. And they turn me down. And so in that process i had called our attorney bat Do now he said you have to appeal to the state board of education. But they're just a rubber stamp. The local school board will. Then what do i do when he said while you're going to end up in family court and telling lord i told you this was not a mcgee. I had this brainstorm in the middle of all this a realization. That our state superintendent of education charlie williams had been a friend of my mother's and actually she was fabulous public schoolteacher. And when she was teaching in he was getting his. Phd absorbed her schoolroom for three six months and it was right across from moscow. I saw him every day after school during that time period so i knew him well and i thought i'm just gonna call him.

That was a great interview. Mike davis interesting guy. And i look forward to working more with dave. We got into a lot of radio stuff so that was fun old home week there. We had a question of the week. And it's kind of appropriate. Especially this week with us from chris on facebook says anyone uses then caster instead zoom for video interviews for podcasts and one of the comments i this was on our blueberry grouping. Scroll down see that and the blueberry podcast and group on facebook. I thought it was interesting. Because you know we're using riverside dot fm and it does work for video. We're not currently using video on this. But you know he was asking other people what they use. We had one person that was using zan caster. And they're adding video or they've added video recently and you know for us normally. We're using skype in a pretty well equipped studio setup switcher and all that down at your studio. We're doing the. I guess the hard way too old fashioned way. We're just recorded in audio today. Yeah yeah today. We're just doing you know audio but normally the way we do it. You've got all adequate down there in the studio and you know so. It's not a software thing but now you know there's a lot of software out there. Zoom works pretty good. share me. you know it's you can even broadcast that to facebook and other places you know. It's all what you're used to but then caster. I don't have a lot of experience with. But i would. Just i put this in here. Just because there's a lot of ways to do everything. I would assume that zen casters audio's probably a little better than zoom and because then caster doesn't currently do video. It's not even an option. I really liked the riverside. For where if you wanna do video you can capture the video as well. And that's pretty slick so i think that there's some good options out there. Lots of great tools. Of course you know our old standbys skype is fine as well. So you know the key there really is is getting good mastery boardings and lobbies tools. Allow you to do that for sure. And gallagher said this riverside thing looks pretty. Slick runs within a browser. So it's not even an app. I kinda like it so far anyway. So yeah really not too much. Today we had a nice long interview so Don't wanna keep around too much longer. So anything else to add there at the end and close it out. I think we're good. I'm todd at blueberry dot com mike at blueberry dot com and of course you can contact mackenzie at blueberry dot com. She kinda helps us pre produce and sometimes host and all that good stuff wanna free month of anything at blueberry go to uber dot com and use the promo code insider..

"That was there for like a full year. Mindfulness is like the the biggest hot. And it was the newest hotness but mindfulness in terms of the practice of mindfulness is stems from a lot of the work of meditation.

Let's turn our western science. I'd to it and found that yes. There are real benefits to the practice of mindfulness so the work that mindfulness based interventions stems from a lot of work by a doctor cabot zinn. Who sort of you know one of the earlier discussing. What's mindfulness in terms of a psychological intervention. I'm sorry this person's less names in cabot.

Thank you for those of you really help with fundraising that that really has been touching thank you. We really helps us get by through all these difficulties when it's very difficult to raise money so thank you very much and today i wanted to come another case and this is Case twenty eight of the blue cliff record. And one of the reasons i i picked. The self is a little bit like remind us the way that we did a few weeks ago but also this is why nonsense who was the feature in particular call on basically loses adama conversation with another teacher so it just shows you know. You don't win all the time. And it also highlights some of the some other aspects of the teach him so last week basically. We're just talking about that aspect. To wonder of wonders. I o beings the great earth of the wisdom virtue of the awaken one to us. Of course it's The traditional robot hat sued This this This week The seventh beer eight isn't the eighth being. Let's see tuesday. I guess that that way. So it's important to to reflect on the buddha's on the buddha's life and teachings so wonder if one does i o beings the great earth are the wisdom virtue of the awaken to thus snus and what we tend to deal with more importantly as because var upside down views. We've failed to see it. You know usually the grassi's green elsewhere. You know people things have a better time than than we do. That is always better. Better places to practice in the place that i stand so i mean you can fill in. You can really fill in the blank as to why it isn't like say the awaken life for the buddha's life if you wish. So we're we're more dealing with the socal relative aspect of our own lives the set right from the beginning. So can we swallow somebody else's words in many ways Better not to that a to see for ourselves in in whatever way but it's also important not to rely on our own stories quite often the stories we have about ourselves and our our own life not reflective of reality. This reality not that is fixed. This reality is occurring now wherever we no matter what would do and then the thing is can we really take that teach in the comes on a momentary basis or do we want another one. That may become in lighter so anyway i'll bring up the case and obviously it's tied in with what i'm saying right now not mind though. Buddha miss this got no preamble straight into the main case nonsense cooled on masta. Yakusho navan jaka. Joe asked have the sages. Since time immemorial had a teaching they did not tell anybody nonsense said yes yakhio said. What is the teaching. They did not tell anyone role waiting for the answer. Now and he nonsense said it is not mind it is not buddha. It is not a thing k. Jaka joe said you said it. Nonsense said that's all i know. What a what about you jaka joe said. I'm not a great Zen t cherry data. How would i know whether it has been told on out. So he's he's having a bit of fun here now. You got to see how he says that to him though to could be sarcastic could be could be praising any any way like that nonsense said. I don't understand yucky. Oh said.

Find Your Power Through Emotional Triggers with Susanne Moore
"In say what's up to fire nation and shears the interesting about yourself that most people don't know John Thank you so much for having me on the show I'm really fired up to be here listened to you for at least four years on the bus this show. So something interesting most people don't know is that I run hundred mile trail races for charity and a few years ago, which is actually when I started listening to your show Iran for a called culture. City and it was a race that the BBC called the world's most dangerous and toughest endurance race is about one hundred and fifty seven mile stage race to the Amazon jungle in Brazil. So as you can imagine, it was miles and miles of training that your podcast got me through man I. Love that I mean, that's exactly why I created twenty six hundred episodes of entrepreneurs on fire. So people like you could be entertained and educated for how was one hundred and fifty. Seven miles exactly. Wow. That is amazing. I hope somebody's running crazy race right now and they're like, yes, me too. That'd be so cool and fire nation we're talking about finding your power through emotional triggers. So let's just start diving right into this ZAN by getting into why emotional triggers are so gosh, darn intense. Yes. So let me start off for a little context by saying my daughter and I just launched an APP called Neuro boot, which helps people build emotional muscle and We did this because what we're finding is so many people really struggle with handling emotional triggers and I mean we all have emotion uncomfortable emotions at times right and most of us really are never taught what to do with those difficult feelings. So as a society, we kind of just run from them right? We either numbered out with some sort of entertainment or we drink we smoke we in my case we work too much some people shop too much or eat too much. But what we found is that many people experiencing emotional triggers actually aware in that moment, what is happening to them? So I like to describe it as a wave that passes over you right. So you know like when you're driving to work and you're already late and you have this big meeting and then someone has a wreck in front of you. Or you get home after really long crazy day and your partner yells at you. Right. So most people instantly get this really intense uncomfortable feeling in their body. And they react to that feeling much more. So than the actual event, it's the feeling that's in their body they react to and more times than not that reaction comes across as negative. Because it's typically fear or anger or anxiety that's directed outward, which feels really natural but it can be really dangerous right because a lot of times what that turns into our harsh words or violence or impulsive decisions that we regret later. and. So we tend to either do that or some people if they're worried about the consequences of expressing their emotions, they just bottle them up. And we've found is that you know bottled up fear often becomes anger and anger turned inward often becomes depression. and. The only reason I know any of this because I'm not a mental health professional I'm an RN, but I've done a lot of things and mental health. Directly is not one of them but. A few years ago my then teenage daughter became really withdrawn and unmotivated, and for a couple of years you know, I was the type A overachiever. So I tried everything under the Sun to fix her from removing privileges to these raw raw speeches too harsh words. And nothing worked we were just often at these impasses. And so I was really frustrated and angry because I interpreted that to mean that she was just being this lazy defiant. and. So one day we had this kind of tough interaction and I just gave in i. i. sat cross-legged across from her and I said I took her hands and I said. I can tell you're in pain. I don't know what it is and I don't know if you're comfortable telling me. But I want you to know that I'm here and I love you and we're GonNa get through this. And it was the first time in probably four years that she just melted and she could see her just soften and she gives me this really big hug and she never said a word. the her eyes were Kinda shining and I knew I thought. Okay. I got through to her and the smell that I just got got to that armor. And I really still just had no idea what I was dealing with or or what was going on and I was raised as someone who was taught to work really hard and ignore emotions and. Be, very STOIC. So a few days later, she came to me with this sheet of paper on a clipboard and she said I know you want to help and maybe this will help you help me. And it was a cheat sheet and it had three columns on it, and the first column showed her behaviors, which were things like laying in bed all day or slamming her bedroom door or refusing to interact with the family. And then the middle column interpreted what that behavior met like. I'm feeling insecure or I'm stressed or I feel worthless
Sticky Hair Monster
"Now let's get started with the podcast episode. So in the last podcast episode, the Zenko on shared is called Joe Shoes. Mu. And I want to share a couple of thoughts about this. The the Cohen itself goes like this Joe Shoe was a famous Chinese and master who lived in Joe Shoe the province from which he took his name one day a troubled monk approached him intending to ask the master for guidance a dog walked by the monk asked Joe Shoe has that dog a Buddha nature or not? The monk had barely completed as question when Josue shouted Mu. So I want to share some thoughts and he starts come from the Book Zenko on's, and this is a book written by Gyo May Kubo say the of all the Cohen's Joe. Shoes Mu is the most famous. It's extremely popular with Zen Masters who frequently assign it to novices if the student tens properly to business mu comes to resemble a hot iron ball stuck in his throat, he can either swallow it nor spit out the importance of shoes mu is it's succinct one syllable revelation of Buddhism. So little background here, and and and again, all of these thoughts come in from the book Zen Cohen's Baio Make Kubo say. He says, Mu, is the negative symbol in Chinese meaning not or no thing Mu. Is also a basic concept in oriental philosophy. There is a relative mu and an absolute mu, the relative mu and Chinese characters is the opposite of you. The letter you which means is the absolute mu of Zen Buddhism transcends is and is not in order to understand this Cohen. It is necessary to be aware of this distinction when the monk asked, Shoshu has that Dog Abboud nature not he was asking not only from the standpoint of his own troubled mind. But from the Basic Buddhist teaching that all beings have Buddha Nature Joe shoe realized this his Mu as an answer was a blow aimed at breaking or untying the monks attachment to that teaching. The essence of Buddha's teaching is non attachment. All human troubles and sufferings without exception are due to attachment even attachment to the idea of non attachment is attachment. Joe Shoe wanted the monk to transcend the relative world transcend the teachings, Transcend Mu, transcend Buddhism, and gain the free and independent world of enlightenment. Satori or enlightenment is this new dimension or perspective in life ordinary human life has always attached to the relative the is and the is not good and bad right and wrong. But life itself is constantly changing the condition of society changes right and wrong often changes. Every situation is different according to time and place. So static concepts are not appropriate to life this thus mu is crucial offers no surface upon which the intellect can fasten. The word mu must be experienced as the world So those are the thoughts from the book Zen Cohen's Baio Make Kubo say regarding the specific Cohen Joe Shoes Mu. And I I wanted to share this. Cohen because as the book mentions, it's most popular, perhaps the most famous of the Cohen's. But to have a little bit of background, you need to understand the answer. So essentially, what's happening here is you have a teacher who's being asked a question by a student by a novice monk and the question is so out of place because. You know the Buddhist teaching of Buddha nature is that all beings have buddha nature. So it's like someone coming law coming along and asking a very obvious question which he should know the answer to according to the teaching that all beings have Buddha nature. The answer to the question does a dog have Buddha nature is obviously yes. But josue knew that he was asking this question that should be obvious. So instead of giving the obvious answer, he gave the answer that the monk was not expecting by shouting Moo or no, or no thing. And in the tradition of Cohen's and in the tradition of Zan, this is kind of the shock and all approach the shock and awe is that that's not what I was expecting. So here you have this novice monk asking a question, get an answer that he's not expecting. And it leaves him confused and that's the exact state that Cohen's and oftentimes Zen in general want to leave you in because it's trying to break you free of the conceptualization 's that you're making in your own mind.
Homophonix Artist Interviews: Rainbow Riots
"We begin in Stockholm. It is true that Sweden produces an astonishing amount of legendary music small country. Third and world music exports after the US and the UK. No surprise that within the queer communities are Sweden there exists a bevy of talent. Rainbow Reports is a nonprofit organization using arts and coach as tools to advocate for human rights, LGBT Iq, plus people globally. Now. More than ever. Our focuses humane humans should be equality and acceptance for all. It is clear that social justice is not yet where it should be, which is why arts and coach organizations like Rainbow, riots exist if you're lucky enough to live in a country where there oiled ubt brides, a lot of times people get complacent and they think, oh, this is the norm. This is the standard while it ain't Jinnai they're like seventy plus countries in the world grades illegal with same sex relations and where people get killed where where. A death penalty sometimes. Free. Sometimes I think we have freedom, but the struggle still continues. The filed the torture still continues. The fight for freedom still continues. Let's put our hands together for freedom for freedom. Through Rainbow Riots Hitter Lemberg brings to light the ongoing injustices faced by LGBT plus family worldwide. With a background in music production visuals, events publication in community projects combined with an amazingly generous creative spirit. Is Well to use music and media to inform and educate. Rainbow riots invited artists from several countries to take part in a concert as part of the Stockholm pride two, thousand and seventeen. They also made their presence known within the pride parade from the back of a truck proudly blasting out there incredible musical achievements. I asked Peta which countries were represented. On the rainbow riots flow we had a representatives from Sweden what and we had Uganda Kenya. We had Malawi and we had Jamaica. One of the standout tracks from that for me was a song called freedom. See the crowd. Jumping into. Heard? Freedom. To it in such a way can you tell me up freedom came about when I started making freedom which I co? Bro With? Lesbian rapid called you'll be she's A. Legendary rap group in this in the states called. And when we wrote it, it was kind of like part of my old project housing Wallenberg and kind of thought. It was going to be part of that. But then as I started gravitating towards doing something with Queer activism around the world I, started turning my movement Rainbow Rides into a creative project and I thought well, freedom should be part of that. Really. So that's when I went down to Uganda and started working in Uganda 'cause I thought if I'm going to make this album with queer voices from the world's most dangerous places I've gotta go to the belly of the beast which is Uganda. So I thought okay. Well, I've got to go there ain't going to be nice in preschool ad. And before I went like my passport was running out, so yeah, they add to reissue a possible at the Swedish apple before my flight and they gave me a pink. And I thought. How appropriate with driving along well, exactly Scotland I'm going into Uganda practically waving rainbow flags. This is not going to end well because I was not sure what to expect the anything I'd seen and heard was that nobody nobody in Uganda who was queer was safe and everybody was you know hiding whenever you saw an interview with somebody they will always hiding behind a blood pixellated sort of thing and and not just come to know people going to want to be part of this project. Is it going to be really difficult? What am I going to expect? So therefore came prepared with a song that I'd already written which with freedom I thought at the best maybe I can get some people to dogs in the video at least will have something. But when I arrived, I found a thriving queer community with love creativity and that's how the project started. When I arrived in Uganda realized wow I could really make a whole out I could turn this into something much bigger or they're already artists to establish themselves within the community who were making music. N You lots of quiz singers and performers an artist, and I ended up right in the middle of it. So you know I arrived armed with one song and you know it turned into an album of freedom was starting song, and of course, a features my my old correcting partner you'll be of your majesty but also features a Ugandan singer cold deep lack on bicycle and also on the spoken word intro and the thing about freedom was the I always knew that it was really instant kind of be happy pride song and I just wanted to dot context to put it in. Something else. So it's not just the body, song? To. Put it into context of something really really important life and death and I kinda thought what what better way to to get the message out to make people ons. That was to make them listen.
A Poets Path To Awakening With Norman Fischer
"Zen priest. Norman is the author of many popular books including his most recent publication. The world could be otherwise imagination and the body Safa Path in his fascinating conversation. You'll he norman share stories from his own spiritual journey from aspiring young poet living in the woods of Northern California to meditation teacher and celebrated author. Norman talks about how early encounters with death predisposed him to religious and philosophical inquiry. And how reading? The existentialist would pave the way for a fascination with sin. You'll also hear Norman discuss the topic of doubt rather than providing faith certainty. Buddhism provides a pop a set of questions in which we discover what life is and who we are. Lastly Norman talks about what it means to be a teacher of the Dhamma as well as his own relationship to himself as a teacher of Buddhism. I so much enjoyed this conversation and I hope you do too. I did have the first question that came to me and it was when I was just sent yo bio and it said that you have a title Zo Kit Sue. I don't know if I'm pronouncing it correctly. That's new to me and I was just wondering what that means. And what does it represent? Well it's not a title it's just it's just my name. So so maybe you're aware that in Zan when you or dane either as a lay disciple or has a priest and a lot of people will I. Dane is a lay disciple and then later ordains a priest. That's fairly typical. Get your given a diamond name. And everybody has a person's personal name and the personal name usually has four characters. So there's and and and it's a two two character names so Zo Ketziot is to character Zo and Keto and those are the first two characters of my four character personal name and the characters translate as Elephant Cave. Zo Is an elephant. Like there's these Japanese water dispensers with like big long snouts on. I don't know if you've ever seen in those are called Zo shitty or something like that L. Elephant container so so as an elephant and catch you as a kind of a cave or grotto where people meditate so The they say that In Asia in ancient times when they were looking for caves to meditate in there would be caves where that elephants would be drawn to because the caves would have like some kind of. I don't know if this is true but somebody told me this. The cage have some kind of mineral in the walls of the cave that the elephants would like to lick on and eat for their digestion. So the elephants would go into these caves in search of this mineral and then they would over centuries. I rub their flanks against the Cave. Making the cave like really nice and smooth and pleasant and then later on meditators would go in these caves and they called him. Elephant caves for meditation so That's very unusual name. I've never there's a lot of names that are common in Japanese character names. You hear a lot of names. A lot of them are names that were given in the past that famous monks nuns. You know but this is a really unusual name. I don't know why I have this name. My teacher gave it to me and when I ask them like how come you gave you the name. He didn't seem to remember having done it. And that's because I think that he was a very busy person and he had a lot of students. I don't think he really particularly noticed me. So he just probably have random names assigned to people randomly so. I don't think there's any special reason why I have that many but it's so people yeah people often think it's title they think. Wow this is some very special title. I never heard this before but the thing is I don't like titles I I don't I don't ever like to use any titles Nobody calls me Rossier Censeo or anything like that. They just call me by my name and in fact hardly anybody calls me Zo Coetzer. They just call me by English name. I had that impression that you want to into title so then when I sold that bio and it intrigued me and I was like wow. Maybe he's I've never seen that title before. Maybe he's got the highest one I've ever seen before. And so he might be compelled to use it. No no no. It's not a title so Who was a teacher that gave you that name? Richard Baker Richard Baker. And and. How did you meet him? Well let's see. I was studying zen in the Berkeley Zen Center and but the Berkeley San Center did not have the opportunity for monastic practice. So the San Francisco Zen Center which is a much bigger organization. Had A monastery at that time just just opened a few years before call. Tuskuhara and I went there for visit and I really wanted to go and do monastic practice and so in order to do monastic practice. You had to be a student of the San Francisco Zen Center system so I started attending. Dharma talks by Richard Baker and And that's how I met him just by I. I didn't really I eventually. Of course got to know him personally and still know him personally now but in the beginning I attended his Dharma. Talks like a lot of other people and I was one of the many many Younger people who were drawn to the San Francisco Zen Center in the very early nineteen seventies. So he gave you the names. O Kit Sue and that was your deigned name is that is that right. Well I I got that name as a lay ordained disciple and then when I was dating later as a priest I retain the same name I'll k. And normally it's full syllables. Did you say yes? Yeah well Yeah the last. Usually you only go by to The last two syllables are a wrench. Oh so my second. My first name Elephant Cave and then Rancho can be translated in various ways it the character's mean something like to to to face something and to shine Saw My my route teacher from Berkeley Mel Weizman translates that second game as turning toward the light which is a really wonderful translation. So so my England in English. You could say my name is elephant cave turning toward the light. I love it. I don't know I'm fascinated by this. Fan is very elastic. The Japanese in fact I've given dominating so many many people over the years and it means a lot to people right because your teacher in my case. I don't think my teacher particularly no mayor new. You know why he was giving me that name as I said a minute ago but usually when I give names I know the people right so I give them some poetic name from the Dharma and they appreciate it right because it's like. Oh Yeah I have a new name now. This is sort of my new destiny my new sort of path in life and so it is a beautiful. It's a beautiful thing to have these Dharma names. People enjoy them and they take them seriously and the in charge them. Yes and you said when you're explaining it. You said that you grew teacher. Mel Wise Men gave you This had had a translation. What did you mean by route teachers interested in that as well? Well he's you know you can have as you know you can have a lot of A lot of teachers a lifetime. Most people will have more than one just one teacher. But there's one teacher who is closest in whom usually it's the teacher that you start with an imprint. Sue initially in Dharma and so Mel Who's still alive now. He's in his. He's ninety. He was my first teacher. And when I introduced me to the Dharma and later after my initial ordination when it was time for me to receive Dharma transmission and full ordination. He was my teacher for that process. Allow so he. He's been my my main really my main teacher and the person who's Dharma. I am following more than anybody else. And so that was at the Berkeley and center. Well well we. I studied with him at Berkeley senator about five years and then after that as I said I wanted to do. Monastic practice in the monastery for about five years and then after that. I remain with the San Francisco Zen Center for the next baby. Twenty some years and moved from the monastery to Green Gulch farm zen center where I lived for another fifteen or twenty years. You would be Abbott Co Abbot of San Francisco Zen Center eventually. Yeah Yeah
The Incredible Singing Tortoise
"The incredible singing tortoise once upon a time on a stormy afternoon Zane was hurrying home from school he had just found out it was his turn for show and tell on. Friday and his brain world with ideas of what to bring. He was so busy thinking that he forgot his coat in his cubby. The cold rain slipped over his hair down the back of his neck making him shiver can't wait to get home and dry off. He muttered. Maybe I'll even have a mug of cocoa. He turned to take a shortcut through the woods. Under the trees. The rain fell in a slower. Pit Pat but when the wind blew the branches shook and soaked him underfoot the mud sucked at his shoes with a wet slurping. Sounds maybe two cocoa's he grumbled then cocked. His head had he heard something. He froze listening to the gentle sounds of rain filtering through the forest finally from off in the woods. He heard a soft voice that bow. Scooby Doo Doo. Wow already indeed dining out but he do scuba. Zane heared into the trees. He in a forest really. It was just a strip of woods between a house and a bunch of condos. There wasn't space for anyone to be hiding. Not unless they were buried in the fallen leaves. Maybe somebody dropped their phone. He said thinking of the Joggers who always breezed by listening to music. Zane stepped off the path towards the singing. His feet squelching through the mud. Or maybe it's an old toy. He thought. Perfect for show Intel. He hunted around by his feet. Where is it? He said searching his arms and legs were soon soaked as he waded into the wet leaves. Come on play another song. Do I do as he knew that. Zane pushed aside another branch. Found not a phone but anomaly little tortoise the creature seem to smile up at him and then sang another bar. Zane fell back onto his but in the mud. What how he said you can sing. I can sing. The Tortoise said Zan's jaw dropped. And you can talk and I can talk. She agreed but I usually don't talking tortoise. Is that more impressive than a singing tortoise. Why she asked caulking her leathery head but it definitely is Zane. Said I'm Zine what's your name. Hi My name is Alicia Alicia. You have to come with me for show Intel this Friday show and tell no thank you. I don't like crowds. I'm really pretty shy. She said pulling her head back into her shell a little. You don't seem shy. Zane said he stood up and dusted himself off still staring at her amazed. Well said the Tortoise I see you walking home alone here every day so I figured I don't mind if you hear did did you like it. It was great. I had no idea. Zine said seriously. I thought that it was someone's phone playing like spotify or something in the mud a leash. The tortoise smiled. Well thank you. She said have a good day. She turned and started to walk back into the leaves. Wait no Zane said chasing after her. You're singing turtle you have to come with me. I need to show everyone for show and tell well. I'm a tortoise turtle leashes said and I'd really rather not show anyone else. It's kind of a private thing com on. He said you showed me. I need to show my sister. At least she's GonNa lose her mind. No thanks she said. I'll see you another time. No no Zane said holding up his hands wait here. He turned and ran the rest of the way home. He burst into his front door and skidded into the kitchen where his older sister was putting peanut butter on some crackers. Tayla he said scaring her so badly. The crackers went flying. You need to come see this. He clutched her by the wrist and started dragging her to the front door. Come on come on come on Zeno what she sputtered following him out the door. What are you doing? Where are we going saying my crackers? Just come on. It's worth it. I promise they got to the little strip of woods and stood in the middle of the path. The Rain Patter down and the mud-stained their sneakers. And why did you drag me out here Taylor asked wait? Just listen? They stood together in silence for a moment. Then a minute then to okay. I'm going back inside your own Weirdo. No come on Taylor turned and hurried away. Eager to be out of the rain. Zane watched her leave for a few minutes and then side turning to follow
Caucus chaos in Iowa
"But first the United States before Americans cast votes for president in November election. The Democrats have to decide who I should nominate their party in the rice against President Donald Trump. Now that happens in fifty states and territories through voting contests called primaries and caucuses. The first race was this week in Iowa and there were at least for two. Is No results extrordinary. There was outright confusion as democratic critic officials sodded quality control if it's to say this is caused democratic anxiety. It's an understatement night. The Arnie the Democrats have spent more than three years questioning the legitimacy of the twenty sixteen election yet now I see the legitimacy of their own democratic process questioned well for more on Iowa and what it means for the shape of US foreign policy. Let's turn to our panel. Doug Bandow is a senior fellow at the Cato Institute in Washington and a former special assistant to President Role Reagan Doug happy to be on Garon. A good cheek is a lecturer in the Department of Government and International Relations at the University of Sydney Sydney and the United States study said. Welcome back to our anger on pretty till we hear. Let's start with this fiasco in Iowa. What did you make of it? Doug Oh it's a disaster aster for the Democratic Party. It's embarrassing. It's an embarrassment for the United States as well and frankly it's a victory for Donald Trump. It allows him to make jokes about the the Democrats across. It makes it very difficult for them to be taken seriously and it creates conspiracy theories within the Democratic Party. It's very bad all around. We're talking about conspiracy theories series momentum appears to be with Bernie Sanders. He's the socialist anti-establishment candidate looks like he's more or less running on power with a Buddha Zhai the former mayor in Indiana but he's over now to win New Hampshire in February but his supporters. Garon I think the party establishment is trying to block. They candidate plausible. Well they saw goes back to two thousand sixteen when we saw really heated primaries raise between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Rick Clinton. We all know how that went end. for a pretty substantial probably portion of Bernie Sanders supporters. This is basically a chance to do the right thing. Now that in two thousand sixteen. They didn't get the result that they wanted so obviously any sort of kind of of issues with with any of the primaries for them will be seen probably probably as a Democratic National Committee's way of Preventing Bernie Sanders from winning the party nomination at the same in time the establishment candidate jibe on the former vice president distant fourth easy damaged goods. Doug Bandow always very damaged. You'll the he's a two term vice president he was in the US Senate for many years. He's someone who has been tabbed as the front runner. He's leading the national polls. You know it's one thing to come. I'm in second you know. I was an odd status. In agricultural status moment western state is really not representative but to come in fourth behind the to Progressive Zan. Dan Buddha gauge is I think extremely damaging. He's moving on to New Hampshire. Where in fact he is behind in the polls you know if he loses both of these you go down to South Carolina the end of the month? You know he's only five points ahead in the last poll if he loses that he has real problems then the conceivable that the other establishment candidate Mark Bloomberg. He's the billionaire former New York. May He's the big unknown he now. It seems wisely was not on the ballot in Iowa but he supported early success for Sanders as beneficial for Bloomberg wagering that it will. You know. Forced moderates lock Barden Buddha Jai to drop out along the way and clear wife or a light swing to Bloomberg grandma so the theory goes and obviously when things come through to be tested in practice we we shall see what what happens. Especially after Super Tuesday but there is this certainly a theory. That really is Biden. Dwindles this leave space. Space for Bloomberg any specially if it comes to Wisconsin in July for the Democratic National Convention and if there is a number of contenders still there is no one would majority there. Might be someone. With plurality Mike Bloomberg could certainly emerge as a kingmaker and and maybe this is the sort of strategy that his companions and that my explain Doug that after this Iowa debacle. He Bloomberg's doubling down on his advertising tossing Spain. But how does he support. Actually Rahm Bloomberg is. I think we'll have trouble getting a lot of personal support on the other hand. He may be seen as the best alternative live. You know somebody who is more centrist orientation. He's smart he's presentable and he has a lot of money he can match any spending from Donald Trump. The problem is he's run as a Republican before he's Kinda cold fish. He's not very personable. He has problems as a candidate. But again word a different world and for Democrats if you're looking for an alternative to the progressives if you're scared of the idea of a millionaire socialist you're representing your party Bloomberg might be the guy in July or he can be the guy to anoint. The person who gets now you've had dealings with Bloomberg. What's the nature of your of your dealings with? The Bloomberg was a couple of years ago bringing in foreign policy people to argue issues. I mean in many ways. It was quite impressive. He sat with us out Bloomberg along with yet a foreign policy adviser and he brought three of us in in my case to talk about Syria. The man is clearly well informed. He understands issues. He's smart. He's engaged. He was down to Earth. The problem is from his standpoint. I think being a presidential candidate is typically ebbing smartening in. That sense doesn't really get you a lot of votes in a way. That being personable empathizing these sorts of things. And he's not really that kind of a character but I was impressed impressed with him. He struck me as somebody who is competent. Who If as president he could very well do a good job depending on what you thought of him on the issues? So I think he'll he. He will make a mark doc in this race. He's a smart guy who's willing to spend tens of millions of dollars you can't ignore. My guests are dot band out from the institute in Washington and Gerona Good.

Franco-German divisions laid bare in Brexit talks
"To delay. Brexit from six months overriding the objections of French president Emmanuel Macron and setting a Halloween deadline for Britain to leave the block lettering. Con talks to Alex Barker and Gotcha Zan about the considerations informed. The discussions. Onyx? It's the often after very long Brexit summit. We left the building around four o'clock in the morning. We had a result. What was it? So it was Otto thirty first Halloween is the new day for Brexit. It was a difficult discussion. The second time that you leaders of come together in the last month to extend Britain's membership in the union and its controversial because there were very clear differences of you typically between France and Germany over the merits of Britain staying within the union, and it became very clear through the course of the night way. You had the French president Emmanuel Macron taking a very tough approach initially, especially making clear that he wanted a short extension in may or June to keep pressure on the UK to force a decision about this to avoid the UK taking part in European elections next month. For parliament. They want to leave. And at the other end, the majority of you leaders who wanted something that was longer that would take Brexit of their agenda for up to a year and Angola Merckel was one of the strong advocates of that approach in that group as a summit seemed to go on we had to raise may coming doing her dress. But there's only one leader that was the focus of events. And that was mR Macron became out telling us that he was happy with the best possible compromise. And remarkable also came out and said that she was very happy with the result guy. What was the role of the charter in getting Macron into medium extension territory, the, but he's happy with and she was happy with what was have influence over him. I think she had a kind of moderating influence over Macron. I think you had essentially French president with a very tough hard line approach is is is described and you have the other. The camp that wanted to sort of extend it much further out to possibly as far as April next year. And I think Michael was trying to edge towards a compromise that was satisfied both camps. And I think it was very important that she talked about the e use historic responsibility. This is an abiding feature of the kind of rhetoric that Merckel uses on Brexit. She believes that people in twenty to thirty years time. We'll look back and judge the EU on how it handled Brexit, especially the whole concept of a no deal Brexit. She thinks that history will judge the European Union extremely harshly. If it allows written to crash out without a deal. So I think that is her overriding priority in these negotiations to ensure an orderly Brexit one that doesn't damage the version Konami also doesn't damage the European the German economy. So we're left with this Halloween date and. Effectively splitting the difference between the two council were ended up equidistant, but October thirty first the beginning of November is also quite an important moment in the political cycle. Alex. Why does it matter in a year of quite big upheaval that we're in October toiletry rather than say December? What does it mean in the us life cycle post-election world? It's a big transitional year for the EU all of institutions will have a new president appointed in the coming year. And November is a time when the European Commission leadership will change and Brown's had worried that Britain's continuation as a Member State would start kind of pollute the normal day-to-day business of the EU, and it retains all the rights and powers of membership yet wants to leave this union and November's the point where it would have been potentially nominating. A European Commissioner. From the UK and would be taking decisions about shaping the club in the future. Even when Britain still intended to leave. And so this provides a bit of security about those concerns by limiting the kind of influence of the UK would be able to have their will other commitments given. But it's quite hard to do it legally because alternately all the voicing powers Britain has would still be there. I'm gonna Mirka when she walked into the room. We saw laughing and joking one diplomat described demeanor as quite relaxed on the other hand you had Mr. Macron for whom the stakes were very high. He walked into the room telling us that unit his project, the sorts of of the was a stake in the end we managed to come somewhere in the middle. But was this a seminal summit for the Franco-German relationship were talking to someone an expert on the think tank in Berlin softening who made a very interesting point, which is the really in a way the difference that we have between France and Germany on this issue of delaying. Brexit is actually indicative of much bigger split between Germany, and France, which is their attitude to reform the EU, I mean Micron essentially has this idea that Brexit is a big distraction from as you put it the European renaissance, and the sooner we get rid of this destruction the better so that we can get on with the task. Of reforming overhauling the EU. Now Merckel is very very cautious. We know that. But she's quite conservative. When it comes to big rolls of the dice, reforming the EU. So actually for her this issue of Brexit being a distraction is actually less relevant because overhauling the EU is also less of a priority for her on. It's actually becoming increasingly difficult to persuade Taryn party the Christian Democrats of the wisdom of doing these bold reforms. So in a way, she is much more supportive of these sort of incremental steps and also in a way, she's trying desperately to ensure that there are no big cataclysms that will hurt the EU and could actually lead to the disintegration of the EU. That's her main concern is keeping the EU together. And I think she feels that Brexit is potentially such a destabilizing thing that needs to be managed incredibly well in order to keep. P- a you cohesion to maintain aid. You you should not sexually top priority. Alex. He's been in Brussels long enough to know that the Franco-German relationship has been through a few ups and downs. How would you judge where we are right now given that yesterday or last night very apparent the mR Macron was pretty isolated an even though Michael bottom around. He seemed to have backed himself into a bit of a corner is that an ominous sign for how these two partners go ahead and future. I mean, the French president had a bit of support in the room. But clearly he was in a minority, and it's very rare to see such clear differences in public while public as a summit gets voiced clearly in such a sustained manner over something that's as important as this issue, the French and Germans tend to keep their differences private or try to always huge divergences in outlook of many big policy areas. But. It's more and more creeping into the public realm. They're more comfortable about speaking in opposition to each other and use that to some extent last night, some of it was tactical considerations. Should they go short and keep the pressure on the UK to make the labor party feel that there was a no deal imminent that it was time to really compromise. Or should they go long take it off, the EU agenda give the UK time and possibly make all the Brexit. Who think a no deal is a good thing. Think that the whole Brexit may be lost in it's time to compromise and do a deal. So that was a legitimate question there, but underlying the differences between the French and gyms was more fundamental difference in outlook about the European interest over Brexit in mccombs view. It is in the European interest for this to end as soon as possible and potentially for Europe to continue without the UK. In the view of Berlin. It would be better for this to resolve itself in his consensual away as possible and ideally probably for the Brits to stay in. That was the fundamental difference in outlook, the orientated both leaders last night and actually caused all the trouble in the room. No leaders last night ruled out another extension pasta. But which means we could be back having this clash of philosophies again. And it'll be interesting to see whether if we're back in Newton, Macron's vision might win over the longer ones. But. We'll have to wait and see very much guys.
Pick your poison, but 'toxic masculinity' is only inflamed by booze
"The front page of asked is all about how are you guys? And how he wants to return to Ramat draining isn't exactly being sent in the world on fire as ain't for by Munich's. I've found they season just the three goals one. That says look at its contribution in general is in the high sign of the maybe you expect from him sit. Does he wanna come back is that truth in this? Yeah. I mean, let's put this into context when he left row majority left graduate because the difficulty is relationship was in Zan his feeling that there weren't opportunities at the club. And he's feeling the club. At least in the short term was owns it and side that they'd seen the value of of impress being relegated to the bench butts. His intention was always to be at rounded. What happened was deal was done with by Munich? Now, the problem, hey for for HAMAs and indeed around, Richard. They want to bring him back is power is lousy and binds hands they can exercise the purchase clothes if they want to and he will have relatively little choice. Now. Of course, it's true. That it's read a club forces applied to stay if they know that he wants to go, and certainly then is red club invest that kind of money nine that he wants to go. So I can see this eventually being resolved. We return to the Ben about I wouldn't be huge surprised if by Munich were able to kind of persuade him and then said right well unilaterally, we're going to do this. We're going to keep him. Meanwhile, said Marcus rash. So reality trait. Yeah. Then by this too. By for number of reasons. One of them is of course, the size of the cost of any plan, leaving primarily clubs still less a club like Manchester United if Real Madrid are in a position where they're going to invest the kind of money, the apply light rash would cost then they're going to invest that money and then buffet or name our if they possibly can. I just don't I mean look full of surprises a million times. But I just don't see this. I just I just think this is an own style
Inside the First Amendment: Making the Web, Social Media ‘Better’ Places — with Caution
"Or not then there's a question, you know, sort of, you know, in a more practical way, I know Zan up to Feqi has has resisted the idea of calling these social media companies public squares. Because really they're toll model is based on feeding. You just information information, that's really made just for you. So it's the opposite of a public square interested in grabbing information from you feed. Yeah, advertisers. But you certainly, you know, they're not publicly. You know, they're they're not. They're their interest is not a public interest commercial corporations. And this is how they're walking cross. And here's what they might want an ice cream right here because he's hot right? Right. Right. I mean, there's this whole surveillance under. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. A whole level of surveillance under the speech and their monetize ING the results of that that surround. So that, you know, in in those respects, it doesn't look like public square, right? But there's no question that these companies have immense power to decide not just who can speak, but also who gets heard right who can speak because they decide who gets onto the platforms, and who doesn't but who can be heard because their algorithms decide what speech gets prioritizing speech gets. You know, the. Yeah. So, you know, in that sense, they control the public the public square and not just in the United States. But in a lot of the world, right? And you know, again, the first amendment is concerned principally with government power. But we resisted the centralization of control over the public square in the government because we didn't like the idea of centralization of that kind of our, and so maybe we should resist the idea of centralizing power in the social media companies for the same reason, you know, so that you know, that's how you get to proposals. Like, well, maybe we should have a must carry rule which requires Facebook to carry everybody, you know, that restricts Facebook from, but you run up against pretty serious first amendment arguments on the other side, you know, Facebook, can I think quite plausibly say that it has a first right to create the kind of community that wants to write wants to create. And I'm not sure we really want a situation where he spoke is subject to the first amendment in the same way that the government is. I mean, it would require Facebook. To allow pornography on the platform. For example, it would allow it would require Facebook to allow, you know, constitutionally protected, hate speech. So Facebook would be required to to host that.
