And then he goes back in and then they could go both ways false positive get somebody else. Negative get somebody back in and then what happens and and how come coal. if he's not vaccinate didn't get it if he was with the trainer and they're working because proximity. Do we know anything about this thing. At point. we're how far into this. We got nothing. We still have no idea. Absolutely no idea. They're just hoping you know. Hey if a guy does test positive for kovin let's test him again and just hope that maybe it's negative and that's really it seems like all they're going off the nfl say you were going to get vaccinated. Yeah i don't care how many examples we gotta make wait. Wait for the first couple of weeks if somebody has to missile games all the nfl is gonna come. Oh there must have been a misunderstanding on that asterix. Yeah we said it was a seventy million dollar fine. That's where the owner for you. It's actually your entire season trae here. Sorry if you saw at the nfl pa agreed to it. There will be something like that. It feels and not obviously. That's a a dramatic example right. But it'll be something. Do you think cam coal all these guys that are alleged not coz definitely not but cam allegedly is he. He's asked to take the test and you want to travel things. Because he has the five thing we all know he's not vaccinated. You know like because the cam and co or doing this right now. The nfl have to go through the nfl. So happy so happy about this day or so ponder just like we thought you only get vaccinated. You only vaccine not yet wait easy. What's next it's almost like whenever I'm not gonna say come on. No no because it's not that serious but it is like like when you it's almost like they're just waiting like hey. We got a lot more shit that we can win. Or you just going to finally just go ahead and get the vaccination. We know what you we know you feel. Hey that's great and good for you jerry. Jones even said a lot of people without that make their decisions about their own body but whenever their decision starting negatively affect everybody else. You've got to drop the i pick up the week. I think i think that is what jerry actually said the. Nfl is doing that. I think right now. And they're like oh five days out don't worry about. Hey cam come on back and sneeze one time you see it you should. You're gone for another six days. I think that's only this is all i think. Now cams probably not going to camps being affected by this a lot more than coal probably deaf for sure definitely. Yeah becau gonna play it first week. Probably definitely eight to ten targets on third down. Coal is going to get the ball. Visas going to get the ball on third down first game. That is just going to happen. About how many five day little recesses he has to take right cam newton missing these days gonna lose his job valuable huge. So maybe cams the next guy that's just comes out and says i got because fucking lost i had to with justin pugh now saying like hey as vaccinated player. We need to have more tests for the vaccinate players. Almost supports beasley. Where it's like. hey. I didn't get vaccinated still getting tested. Every day still bringing up negative tests and now you want me to go get vaccinated after the guy who was vaccinated almost gaming cova beasley much to the chagrin of a lot of people on the internet but to the support of the opposite side of that part he is going to feast on this feast. Beasley d will not miss you talk. Yeah no no are. We know doc. Mike austin soda. Zim said coach. Zimmer did say that he's a great presentation. We talked about that yesterday at length. I think you missed yesterday's show. You should go back and really listening to me and aj talk about what. The success percentage expected success percentage should have been for all dr mike through our research of outsiders that come in and speak to the team a football especially in training camp where it's ninety guys so it's even more so like power of the model most you're going in there. You got out of five to ten seconds. Yup and that is it. They first impressions. Go a long way in that in those particular meetings. You got five to ten seconds. Really get your angle your narrative and also proved that you're worthy of being listened to in front of an entire team in there has been some of the most sophisticated people most talented orders in the history of speaking that have gone into some of those locker rooms in gotten bullied. It is it is not. I'm not telling you. I like it. I'm just telling you like this is reality. I don't know if dr mike was going to go in there. And maybe flip somebody who was being told that there's a seventy million dollar fine coming in. They wouldn't budge. But if dr mike was able to go in there and we might want to get him a nobel fucking peace prize for dr mike. Even know coach simmer said. I'm not sure how much it swayed anybody.

Helping Your Kids 'Focus' on Zoom
"Zoom another video. Conferencing tools are here to stay as businesses press pause on the return back to offices. It also means students may continue learning remotely so zoom is introducing a new feature to help keep kids be less distracted. Yeah that's right. zoom revealed. A new mode called focus and it's aimed specifically for teaching environments such as obviously being in class During the class the way it works is if when it's run through zoom and you're using this focus mode. Teachers will be able to see every student in class but students will only see the teacher. So when a student's view you'll have the usual zoom view but instead of seeing all those faces different tiles students will only see the names of other classmates in available windows but they won't hear their peers talking if there's any and they won't see any non verbal feedback or hear them when they're on muted basically just looks like it's the student and the teacher in the zoom at all times It also works to for teachers when they want to enable screen sharing so say an instructor is trying to do some kind of presentation and kids take turns presenting stuff in class. They can basically screen share with that individual child and then everybody else can focus on that. And there's not a zillion other pop ups that are there that are distracting And we've seen zoom take several steps over the last few months to shore up its platform as americans have grown more reliant on using videoconferencing like zoom a to get through working to get through school We just saw last month. Zim zum rolled out apps so basically it just merges popular productivity and entertainment services like games directly into the zoom window and they also launched an events tool to host hybrid meetings or conferences directly within zoom. So we're seeing a lot of different changes with the platform over these last couple months. Sounds pretty interesting. i mean. unfortunately we're going to be doing zoom for the foreseeable future. It sounds like in some fashion. You know whether it's school are worker. What are happy hours. Or whatever so Sounds cool

"Growth stocks. That's not it at all. This is a retirement planning show. And the thing that I think people need to be careful about is that they're not counting on those kind of really risky strategies. To pay their bills every month and be their safety net. The safety net is where those fixed annuity kind of strategy comes in. Or if we're not gonna use annuities, we're being very careful, very conservative, right? Because some people the surrender penalties in that kind of stuff on annuities they don't like, but some people they don't like the risk you're taking in the stock market. So so that that goes back to that conversation you were having earlier about. Every plan is different. It is so there's no like we put this much here this much that so here's what I usually tell people. It's kind of like, fall on the back of Ah, prescription bottle risk as needed, You know, I mean, you know we can take the risk we needed. I mean, we're going to have to take some life is risky. Life is messy, but let's take the risk. We need to get where we need to go. But no more like why Why don't we take in so much risk that I usually see And you know you two and people's plans, then that's really unnecessary is like Hey, we're where we need to be. You saved enough. If we pan this out in place this out, right? This is gonna work smoothly is smoother way laid down a foundation so that people know that there no matter what happens in the markets, they're covered. And then we have money set aside for emergencies. Money set aside for one time expenditures. You know, cars, you know, maybe travel for a few years. That sort of thing. Growth money. All of these things are designed to do different things for people. And you know what? Here's what I call it. Common sense retirement planning. Yeah, it's not about a product. It's not about a stock. It's not about a bond. It's not about whether we should be in stocks or we should be in bonds or are annuities good or bad or golden silver? Good or bad? None of that stuff's good or bad. They do different things. So it's just common sense. And if you want to common sense retirement plan start by having us analyze where you are. Today, we will do a stress test of your current strategy where we will show you all of the good things that you've got going on. And then what one of the things that you really need to fix and that you need a plan for And then we will actually show you how to do it. We go through and show you unexamined of exactly how we do the planning. I mean, it's a very in depth. Tony. Usually it's a couple of visits, right Took to really help. People figure this out. And we don't charge a penny for it. We do it as a service to our listeners. And if we decide to work together, we will will explain how that works. But if you want this analysis done, give us a call. 988 Triple 06. That's 205988 Triple 06 and for our listeners in Huntsville, we're doing meetings remotely via Zoom and for the people in Birmingham, where people were doing meetings remotely over Zim. But if you want to come into the office, you can come into the office and we got people coming way got people from both cities that were taken advantage of this and let me say this protect yourself, your family and your retirement plan before things potentially turned back around again, because if it turns back around and goes down another 30 or 40%,.

People will not get paid. But why do you have people who are literally sitting there copying and pasting opening up one application opening up another application. You know making mistakes right.

We'll talk about more advanced forms of that later in this education session and we did talk about that in our foundation session but it is really about automating those repetitive tasks because the alternatives kathleen mentioned as we go into. Is that yeah. It'd be nice if my system can talk directly to your payment system. And i could send you electron my invoice. Never have to generate a pdf and trust me. We've been trying to do that for decades and it never works because invoices are all slightly different parts. Numbers are not your parts numbers and my address. Zim doesn't match your address either. There's just lots of variability and instead of fighting the challenge of getting systems to talk to each other. Let's just automate what humans are otherwise doing now this. Bpo thing we spent a lot of time talking about this and foundations is that the alternative is that you have somebody who's lower cost. Do that work. If it's like a human has to do it and you don't want to have your expensive people who work in payments and procurement and accounts payable doing basic invoice data entry. You're like okay. Send all my invoices to a location or to accompany that can do them at a much lower cost. But they're basically just you just treating humans like robots you just saying you..

"There was a lot more recycling of of water in and out of the crust of mars from again volkan zim impacts worse today that Vocalism has died down significantly impacts less frequent and so any ice that exposed at the surface gets eventually buried in dust. And and that's all that's what we're seeing so so. I have a different view. Here of what early mars was like. It's it was still a place exciting for life because it had liquid water. But it's not it wasn't sort of the the geo centric view in my view. This juice centric view of mars. Being sort of more earth like king at the time there's a certain fascination that people have with the idea that mars was just like earth and Yeah and then it took his turn for the worse and this is in our future as well. That kind of story pasco If you were the nasa administrator in in in were you bless us yet. you'd need probably some medication. Such a nice guy. I would not wish that on you but but but if you were How would you said an and if you believed you had faith or confidence at least in your hypotheses. How would you said about testing it. What what would the mission to mars. Do that would help short this out. It's actually born already by the data that we have. It's it's a matter of realizing how you interpret how sometimes how you interpret the data. Carry some assumptions that often not state so for example when when people look at valley networks on mars these dry riverbeds and claim that they were formed under warm climate. The underlying assumption. There is that the water was stable under open air but in the glacial ipod these valleys were not under open air. They were under a very thin atmosphere but covered by ice so the ice was providing the confining pressure to allow liquid water to flow and carve out the valleys not an atmosphere that was thick. So it's it's really a matter of over time. Changing one's or broadening wants interpretation of exploring multiple hypotheses but more multiple in one might even think In terms of you questioning some of the assumption you see an ancient riverbed you should not assume that the water was flowing. The open air. You might consider that there was something else providing the confining pressure so that's one direction for the research that would encourage but in terms of our goals on mars. Let's let's not forget why we're so excited about mars. I mean there's the dimension of course of paving the way to getting humans there and of course that's something that you know we should do more of an and faster but on the scientific front the real. The big driver of how going to mars is to search for life and the real thing that we should say. More explicitly is that we are searching for alien life alien life and there's no amount of fossil finding that even mars twenty twenty could do that would establish that we found alien life. Perseverance could be driving by a rocky outcrop here where there are dinosaur bones jutting at you or whatever bones they are and of course joking you know. Let's say they were al goal. Ancient algal mats or h microbial colonies. That left the fossil signature. That was very clear that it was biological. There's no way we could determine that we are looking at alien life. I mean it's on an alien world but it could be earthlife. Exported to mars or the reverse mars life moss. Life could have started on mars and then being exported to the earth and we're descendants of this life. The point is planets are understood now not to be isolated systems. We have meteorites that have come. Naturally from mars large asteroids and comets hit mars they eject rocks into space the unlucky ones fall on earth..

"To the show. I certainly hope you're doing well on this Wednesday night. It cool 50 Wednesday to you, By the way, you're talking about minimum rage being raised to $15 an hour so the Democrats are trying to support To be clear by the way. It's not a given that all the Democrats would support a $15 minimum wage. Joe Manchin. Some Democrats senator from West Virginia, opposes it. For example, economic economists Excuse me disagree with some of the findings his wealth in the CBO. Especially that it would reduce employment by 1.4 million workers. So it's a tough one. We do feel for anyone who needs you know a razor needs during living. Obviously, we all do. But I'm curious what you guys are thinking about this Good call so far keeping coming. Brian is up in armored waiting. Hello, Brian. How are you? Just great. Thank you for taking my call. My pleasure, the benefit of your listening audience. I should probably explain that I'm a social Republican. Okay, Okay. I believe the government should do everything you can for the benefit of its citizens based on what it can afford to do A safari as the minimum wage is concerned, the big argument as well. It's not a living wage Well, If the minimum wage was sake of argument, $10 an hour and I'm single, I work 40 hours a week. I've never worked an hour of overtime. I worked 50 weeks out of the year. My two weeks vacation. I don't get paid. I make $20,000 gross. Okay, I can render them someone's house. I don't have to have a fancy car. I don't have to have a fancy phone. Okay. Um I can live off that well, but it could make a living. And if I'm married, and we're both doing that, well, the two of us are bringing in $40,000 a year Gross. Plus at the end of the year. We also have the earned income tax deduction. Tax credit, Okay, which is money in your pocket? Um, So this argument that will mineral Woods is not a living wage is well, you know, it's not supposed to be, but it's if you're single. You get by. If you're married, and you're both doing it, you can get by. Okay. You won't get rich if they're both doing it and got two kids. You also get the child tax credits at the end of the year. What's gonna happen if they raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour and somebody's working 40 hours a week? Okay, That's $30,000 a year. They're going to get in the earned income tax credit. They're gonna lose that are losing right? Yeah. So this argument If these politicians who've never owned a business in their lives, I want to do something gradually working up to $12 an hour. That's 20 cents a minute. When that make keeping so much easier. Yeah, yeah. And you know you do make an interesting point, Brian, I want to say that. Yeah, you don't do you listen. I mean, no one wants to live on 60,000. That's tough, But as you say, It is. You can do it. It's not desirable. But then again, here comes an incentive part where you want to do better. And if you're married, you both want to do better. At least one or both wanted you better or you're fine with that. And then like you say, And I think you make a good point. Maybe you don't have the best phone. Maybe I don't have the top of the line phone. Maybe you Maybe you're renting a room. God knows it in my lifetime, Brian, I I worked for for minimum wage. Okay. I work for minimum wage for a long time I put myself through college. I did all these things I had to live with roommates, Brian. Thank you for listening and thank you for calling. I had to live with roommates. It wasn't the perfect situation, but it's what I had to do while I was putting myself through college, for instance. Like it was tasting the stories living these roommates by the way, she's that's all other shows and another topic for another show, But yeah, I had to do that. Had to make sacrifices. While I went ahead and went to college and tried to better my life tried to attain more in terms of skills, and then those skills hopefully would then Translate into wages, better wages. Because now I'm a more skilled worker. So, yeah. I mean, it is possible to do that. But that is incentive to move away from that, because again no one is really pleased. I don't think with making $10 an hour, but it's a valid point. You can live off of it. Some people really don't want to get past that. They just want to do that. They want to live in a you know, they want to live as a roommate or You know, in a room and a house or what have you and get the get the tax credit and and then there's nothing that's going to Um Give them any incentive to move on beyond that, to motivate them to do anything beyond that. Depends on who you are. We're all different, right? But Thank you for the call. Greg's in Eldorado. Hello, Greg. Hey. How you doing? Good. Thank you. Yeah, A couple points I've got like a few jobs. And is what they actually do in the big box stores will give you $15 an hour. But guess what? We're going to hire three people at 10 hours a day. I mean, 10 hours a week, 10 hours a week. You're not gonna get full time. They cut your wages, and then they don't want to pay you any benefit training. That's right. We're gonna get you. Yeah. No problem. Hey, you want 40 hours a week would know you're going to get 10 and where I am three other people. Uh, Yes, it happens everywhere. Doesn't agree. Yeah, Does they in the big time and they because they don't want to pay the manifesto That's been going on for a long time. And I guess I just want to throw this out, but really good thing that this song but Donald Trump And there's a guy that served a lot of time in prison, then never committed a major crime or a murder. Okay, but he ended up being responsible. Named name is Charles Manson. He wasn't there. But he talked people into doing some bad things, right? Just see kind of a connection between him and Donald Trump. Which is kind of, but just the fact that he wasn't there. But he talked people into doing some bad things. Oh, wow. I mean, is that a stretcher? Well, well, I mean, uh, Wow. I mean, well for me, and I'm just being honest because you're being honest, Great, And we're just having a discussion. Um, I understand when you say that someone wasn't there, but maybe inspired someone to do something, but I It's a little rough for me to compare Donald Trump to Charles Manson is what I'm saying a little bit. I understand you understand your line of reasoning, but it Zim been of a stretch for me. Personally, I just want to throw that out there, Greg, my friend anymore. This is great. Thank you, buddy. Appreciate that. That's a little bit of a stretch for me on that one..

To spread. So I mean, luckily, the NFL isn't having to deal with this. But the scenarios if it should happen is is it still daunting to think about to be honest with you? Unfortunately, it's not a big issue. We're all praying for that. Let me ask you this. Is there a chance? Well, Guess it's a rhetorical question, because I think that I know the answer, but I can't prove it. So that semi rhetorical I mean, is there a chance that I mean, we could live another 50 years.

You just kind of like, ever succeeded. Kind of like the road runner. Well, let's go more like Wile E. Coyote similar, very similar, very good. And by the way we were talking earlier, who started the beef between Trump and Rubio over the size? It was Rubio. According to Frank Morano, who first accused who he brought up the Donald Trump has tiny hands. It was Marco Rubio and again when Rubio was on with you when I He refused to take President Trump to task so frightened. Rana was probably right. He's always right. We will talk to John Catsimatidis coming up in eight. If you write today's New York Times column about our colleague, the great Rudy Giuliani against President Trump has, in fact, Reached out maybe once ready to defend him in this ridiculous impeachment trial, which is going to go to the Senate, And I know that Mitch McConnell that backstabber now given he wants to give Trump a couple of weeks to put together His defense team and his case. And obviously, people out there are trying to make sure that Rudy can't do it. I mean, there are books and wanted this poor body. Julia. Yes, particularly look that they want to cancel anybody who ever worked it actually have a list. They put out a list of people. You talk about McCarthyism. They put out a list of people. Rudy Giuliani, of course, is on it. And anybody who worked for worked works for or will work for the president in the future is going to be on that list. And by the way, your Senator Graham He has suggested an attorney. The president has accepted his suggestion that some dude named Butch from South Carolina. I mean, that's how hard it is really for for the President, President Trump to get some competent attorneys to defend him in this Senate impeachment trial, which, as you point out, they put it off for a couple of weeks. But again, where's the unity? There's no unity and we'll talk to John Coming up in 807. McConnell is really showing his true colors the last couple of weeks, and we talked about this before that If you go back to the very, very early days of the Trump presidency, he did not have a friend in either Mitch McConnell or Paul Ryan. He just didn't now as time moved along, and Donald Trump started the gone or some Well, love and support and some accomplishments. Right Then those two guys kind of came along for the ride. But I never got the feeling ever than either one of those guys ever liked him. And now given the opportunity to stab at Tu brute, a trump in the back on the way out. I am not surprised that McConnell is doing this. This is how the swamp works. There. They they're tried and true. Well, what was Ryan and is now McConnell Swamp rats complete and total swamp rats, opportunities to bandwagon jumpers and just untruth trust with by the way, the guy is ah, crap. They're full of crap. And they're they're like 85 years old. All of them. They're old, dusty old farts. Get them all out. Mitch McConnell, Joe Biden, Jim Clyburn, Pelosi. All of them, Feinstein, Even on the Republican side. You got a couple of guys, The old the old guy, and I like him to the old guy from Grassley. Rest. I think it's from Iowa, right? Right. E mean, you know, we need some new blood down there in the swamp. Get these people out. They're sickening. And, yeah, Mitch McConnell If he thinks that he's going to ingratiate himself with the people who show up in front of his house with bullhorns or surround his vehicles, he's sadly mistaken. Well, let's see what happens. You know he's trying to negotiate the filibuster with Chuck Schumer, right, so he's like, no, you can you can impeach the president. That's final. I'll let you do that. But at least give me the filibuster, and Chuck Schumer is like No, No, I'm not gonna I'm not gonna do that. And so Mitch McConnell has come just like blowing in the wind. Yeah, well, he's just like like I tried to make the illusion to Jonas. What? He's a crocodile. He's feeding the crocodile again, hoping it will lead him. Uh, last.

DC, state capitals see few issues, heavy security amid protest worries
"E. Pretty much for locked down National mall will be closed and estimated 25,000 National Guard troops. Unprecedented security in the wake of the deadly January 6th riot Tomorrow. Of course, is Inauguration Day. We're joined by San Antonio. First news National correspondent Bill Er. Excuse me, Bill Zim for Bill before we talk about new arrest being made even though protest over the weekend for the most part, did not. Materialize. Capitol buildings across the country are still under scrutiny. Absolutely. And there will be tight security everywhere across the country, and you're right. Fortunately, over the weekend, there were very few really incidents and very few protesters. In most cases that state capitals across the country, you had more media and more law enforcement than you had demonstrators, the largest of which may be contained a couple of dozen people who remain peaceful, so That the good news But the security will remain tight at the state capitals across the country and other sensitive areas. As I mentioned, more arrests are being made any idea how many people have been arrested in? Maybe how many have been identified but not arrested yet? This is expanding exponentially, Charlie. We we think a roughly 100. People have already been arrested and charged in connection with the January 6th events of the capital, including Some of the faces. We've all become familiar with from those videos. We've all seen there and we understand that there are over 300 active investigations underway in two others who may have been involved. The FBI is acting on over 100,000 tips they have received in the wake of this whole incident at the capital. So this is continuing. This will continue to expand and likely result in hundreds of arrest Charlie and those that are being arrested. They will be taken into custody and their local Jurisdictions and face arraignment there. But this is all being handled by the district, the U. S attorney in Washington D. C under federal charges which could result in jail time. Yeah, and I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that those people that do get arrested in service from jail time Probably won't ever do anything like this again. Yeah. Yeah, I said, I think that's a pretty safe bet. We're already hearing from a lot of the people who have been arrested. Who said I got caught up in the situation? I don't know why I did this and I regret it. Well, of course you do. And of course, we're also hearing from some of them going. I was just following what my president suggested that I do pretty weak excuse at the same time. It's probably the only excuse of God. Yeah. What is the excuse? I'm not sure the president told us to be here are well, okay. That's not going to get you very far with law enforcement. However, in the in the court system, so there is no good excuse for this. People should have known better. This is a government building. It was a government building that was closed and you just can't storm it. Of course, you're gonna be in serious trouble breaching of federal facility like that so This is something, Charlie. We're going to hear about these cases. They're going to go on for some time.

I lived out in San Francisco in 2006. I was working union out there heavy construction That was with a group called Stand with us, Israel, those little dirt bags and by dirtbags, I don't mean dirt would walk up in a little group and they start throwing punches and they run back into the big group.

And if you do that, you better don't will the expected that bear the repercussions of it? Well, I would say this, anybody that would stand by and let a 60 year old woman be beaten.

Well, looks like Democrats may win control of the U. S. Senate, Raphael Warnock has declared victory in the runoff election against Republican Senator Kelly Leffler. The other race. Still too close to call, but the Democrat leads there. Let's bring in NBC radio National correspondent Bill Zim for the latest on this pretty shocking results, I suppose. Yeah, Everything seems to be falling into place for Joe Biden here, Joe you mentioned Raphael Warnock has been projected as a winner and his runoff against Kelly Leffler and already that is a history making event. He becomes the first black senator from the state of Georgia. Also, it is just incredible where we've come in a generation now when Raphael Warnock was born Georgia's two senators were Richard Russell and Herman Talmadge, who were segregationists so you could say we have progressed as a society so already we have seen history being made. And now the other runoff race is becoming a little clearer. Now. John Assad has about a 16,000 vote lead as we speak over his opponent there, David Perdue. And the way we look at it now they're roughly a little more than 70,000 votes that are thought to be remaining here, Joe most of those air mail In which have been overwhelmingly democratic in these runoff elections. So it looks pretty clear at this point that John Oss off is gonna win the other runoff, which would give the Democrats control of the U. S Senate. But I can almost guarantee you there will be a lot of arguments over these over the next few days for sure also One other thing that appears to be a major factor here is turnout from the indications we have seen in New York Times has broken this down that the indications are that the turnout in some of the heavier Republican counties, the rural counties in Georgia was anywhere from 10 to 20% down from the general election, which may have told the story and these runoff elections.

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.

Coronavirus Is Surging In The US
"One, But however you define it. Corona virus in the U. S is surging. Some parts of the country air passing more restrictions to try to combat the record number of cases this as we have yet another Corona virus outbreak in the White House. NPR's Alison Aubrey is with us now. Good morning, Alison. Good morning, Rachel. So when we say the White House we mean in the orbit of Vice President Mike Pence, several aides to the vice president have tested positive for covered 19, including his chief of staff. Nevertheless, the vice president decided to keep traveling to keep campaigning. What's the reaction been to them? You know, the decision to keep his travel schedule intact was made in consultation with the White House medical unit, the spokesperson said. Yesterday and pencils office says this is in accordance with CDC guidance for essential personnel there, basically making the case he has Essential work to do, including on the campaign trail. But public health experts Rachel are really questioning this definition. Here's Josh Sharfstein of the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. He served in the FDA under President Obama. The vice president should be limiting interactions with others because he could be harboring the virus and he could wind up becoming infectious. And so if there are essential activities that he needs to do in person, he should take extra precautions to do those, but otherwise I think he should be staying at home. Especially given around the country, including places. Pence is scheduled to travel such as Minnesota. The viruses circulating widely, right, So let's talk about that. Alison. What do the numbers tell us about the virus right now? The U. S has been averaging about 68,000 new cases per day. This is about a 30% increase compared to just two weeks ago. In recent days, new cases have reached record levels in several states, Utah, Tennessee, Illinois in Chicago over the weekend. Stronger restrictions took effect of bars and restaurants must close earlier in the evening. This is part of a curfew in the city. Other parts of Illinois have stricter rules, too, including new limits on the number of people allowed together and Rachel. They're certainly a lot of reminders around the nation to stay. Vigil eight, right? Hospitalizations from Cove. It have been on the rice too. I mean, does that mean we're likely to see more fatalities in coming weeks? You know, probably there are still a lot of people dying about 775 people per day in the U. S. On average. That's a lot lower than the highs of last spring. Part of this can be explained by the increase in cases among younger people who are less likely to die. But Rachel there's also been an improvement in treating people in hospitals. Physician Anish Mata is an infectious disease expert at Emory University. He is also a principal investigator for the H M Death Severe trialled at Emory. Last week, the FDA gave this antiviral drug full approval. Red death, severe reduced recovery time to 10 days for 15 days and also importantly, run desecrated treated patients had less use of mechanical valve leaders and other advanced oxygen's airport techniques. Compared to patients who didn't get room disappear. Now it's important to point out Rachel. This is not a home run treatment. It hasn't been shown to significantly prevent deaths among very sick patients, but it does have some benefits and Allison doctors now have other treatments they can offer as well as from desperation. That's right. Doctors have more tools in the toolkit. Now they have You know steroids, such as Dixon Math Zone better information about when to put people on blood thinners. Overall, the death rate appears to have dropped. In fact, a new study that included an analysis of thousands of hospitalized patients found that at the start of the pandemic patients had about a 25% chance of dying. Now they have an 8% chance. So still high, but definitely improvement. Yeah, definitely So younger people, you know, you mentioned more younger people have been diagnosed with the virus. So as we start to think about Thanksgiving Is there any way Tio Tio ensure that college students don't bring the virus home as they leave for break? You know, if you have a college student coming home to you find out if they're being tested, many schools are offering or even requiring an exit test or a departure test. Just before students depart for Thanksgiving break. I spoke to David Paul Thiel, He's a professor at the Yale School of Public Health about this He says. Of course, it's easy to identify symptomatic people. But this isn't good enough. I'm worrying about the student who feels just fine but who happens to have been exposed recently and who could be heading home to visit an elderly relative. And so we don't want to be sending little ticking time bombs home for Thanksgiving. I completely agree that we need to have everybody tested within 72 hours of departure. Now. Not every school can manage this given the cost. But many campuses are offering departure test, including big schools like Ohio State and many small liberal arts schools, too. During such as families that have college age kids either, right? I mean, my own family. We're trying to figure out what we do anything. We're all trying to figure this out, right? Everyone started figured out. So what can you tell us of this boy now, Zim? Well,
How to Build Your VCP on Zoom
"I'm Priscilla rice and I'm coming to see you from Live Oak recording studio in Berkeley, California, and I'm joined on the phone today by the founder and the chief Visionary officer of being eye doctor Ivan misner. Hello, Ivan, How are you? And where are you? I love going back to the how are you and where are you personally? Thank you so much. And as I mentioned in last week's podcast, we're going back to it because you know, I am dead. Traveling. Yeah, it's virtual but I am traveling all over the world. And so we thought we would incorporate it back in by at least mentioning one of the places that I am Live this week. I am live in the United Kingdom for a large Regional event. I've done a lot of recorded visits around the world, but I'm doing a live event in the UK. So we have an interesting topic today out of build your vcp on zoom. And those of you who don't know V C P stands for visibility credibility profitability and we have someone as a guest who is now the reigning Champion for the number of guests visits on being a podcast. This is her eight visits is Tiffany Kellogg and Tiffany entered the entrepreneurial World in two thousand and three. She's enjoyed being able to help her class make money save time have fun. She spends her time traveling across the globe before covid-19 housings of entrepreneurs. Now, she probably does it virtually like I do and whether sharing her expertise wage, Southern Accent on referral marketing networking maximizing your time Tiffany will knock your socks off in with any audience with their fun and entertaining presentations. Now you have a you understand the Sox branding thing that happenes got go to episode number 489 about her colorful socks, you know, he was amazing socks and was funny about that is if you looked at my song it's all black all my socks. So she's very colorful. She's the author of several books and we have her back here today to talk about vcp. Welcome back Tiffany. Thank you so much I have and I'm supposed to be here. You're going to talk about three things how to be seen what to say what not to do. If we have time. We got a bonus round. So talk to us about that and how it fits in vcp job interesting thing where we've switched to Zim and we've been here six months or so now and I think we have to keep in mind that being on camera is now replacing us being in the meeting. So we want to make sure the game Doing everything we can to be moving up the referral confidence curve and down the referral confidence come out. And so the first thing to me is how do you want to be seen and when we only have a short time for a weekly presentation or our featured presentation just a couple of times a year. We want to make sure that we are using the most of the space that we have. So many people are watching the zoom meeting with you on gallery. So you're only a couple inches high. So you really want to think about bringing your energy. I think you have to be more energetic on Zoom than you actually do in person wage. Do you think doctor my eyes? Are you finding that? You have to kind of take it up a notch on camera Coney Island Tiffany? Yeah, I think so. And I think if I remember that like gestures and gestures, you tied my hands. I must be Italian somewhere because if you tied my hands you couldn't speak. I think it's really important to make sure that your hands are included in the camera so that you know when you're doing hand gestures Which means you need to tighten it up. You need to bring your hands in a little closer to show that excitement and to show you know, that visually show that you're you're making a point in that sense. Yes, and then I know we're all in like different with our camera is at so for me. I'm like, I would never talk in public with my hands up by my head, but you do want to have people see that girl. I think you want when you're being seen you want to thank can I use props either something visual that we can use. Yes great suggestion. Yeah, and then we also have the virtue backdrops versus the regular background. I think that your goal is you want to be professional dress professional with a professional background whether that's virtual that works for you or I have a zoom Courtney my office. I actually created this about three years ago to where I can easily do zoom and I know it always looks great behind me. Yeah, cuz if you I don't know if you've seen anybody I I've been with the dog. 30 piles of stuff in the background. Yes. It has it's not it's not pretty I don't know what they're thinking that cracks me up though. Have you seen the new jersey and I assume background that's got me standing off on the left. So I see them because people take screenshots and I'm tagged on Facebook page actually being in a photograph when it's just me as a backdrop, which is just cracks me up. That is hysterical. The last thing I want to say about being seen is make sure that you have your name spelled properly first and last name, maybe even your company name labeled with you and the zoom box. I was visiting a chapter and somebody was listed as dads iPhone off. Oh God. Okay. Yeah. That's that's a problem. You don't want the first thing we want to make sure is we want to be seen the second thing. I think it's very important for us is what time To say I think Matt now more than ever we have to make sure we're very concise with our message and we like to use the saying be specific to be terrific. So during your weekly and featured presentation you wanted to ask you definitely want to make sure that you are specific about that ideal referral or the ideal referral source, and I think that when were sharing if you can use success stories, that is so impactful. We like to say stories sell War facts just tell so anytime you can tell us successes that you created for your clients. It's makes it easy for your fellow chapter members to refer you. Can I add one thing to that but we're telling because I think it's really important don't retell a story relive a story The more you can relive life, you know, really think about your experience there and do your best to re limit as you tell that story. It makes for better storytelling

"Judge Amy Cockney barrettes getting a lot of pointed questions. For members of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Let's go live to Capitol Hill, W. GOP's Mitchell Miller today on the Hill, Senator Dianne Feinstein, the ranking Democrat on the committee, fired off several questions on major legal matters, including abortion. Do you agree with Justice Scalia's view that row was wrongly decided, if I express a view on a precedent, one way or another, whether I say I love it or hate it. It signals to litigants that I might tilt one way or another in a pending case, And in response to questions from Republican Senator Chuck Grassley and Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy, Barrett made it clear she's had no discussions with the White House about how she might rule in cases involving the affordable care act or the upcoming election. It would be a complete violation of the independence of the judiciary for anyone to put a justice on the court as a means of obtaining a particular result. Republicans have praised Barrett during the hearing, which is now in a brief break, Senator John Cornyn pointed out. She has no notebooks in front of her, except for a small white pad.

"Yeah, the Avalanche trying to follow the Nuggets lead, so to speak and climb out of a 31 hole in their second round series with stars, they showed they might be able to do it with last night's thrilling 63 win.

National Collections: You could become the guardian of a major houseplant genus
"You are a regular listener to the show, you will know that I have visited various national collections of house plants for example, the pepperoni Mia Collection of Sallie Williams and Mercy Marci's spider plant collection clarify Tim Komo Zim, but what are these national collections? And what do they do I? Go to press release this week from the charity plot heritage, who runs the National Collection Scheme here in the UK, telling me that they were on the hunt for national collection holders for some missing Genera- an among those missing generate were to that we as houseplant lovers know all about, and that's Hoyer and try to scan tier so I thought I. I would give plant heritage a cool and find out a little bit more about what being national collision holder involves. My name is Vicky Cook and I'm the conservation manager here. At plot heritage I have an audience of global proportions, so lots of people pops all fully aware of what plant heritage in the UK what you do. Can you just give us a little positives through plum heritage plot heritage was founded in the nineteen seventies, and it seems damage to ensure that the incredible diversity of cultivated plot that we have in this country remain available for generations to come and I said. We've got a really strong history in the UK of. The Plant Gardens from from the plant hunters enrolled plant breeders, the Grande Estates, and just the enthusiastic which public we're a nation of. And we've huge diverse garden flora, but there's a you know a mechanism. Otherwise that was realized in the seventy s to stop as losing, and if you know any good plans and one of the delightful things about these national collections that you mentioned is that it means people who live the country who are really passionate about particular species or genus who have a taking care of. Of these plants and recording their collections, and making sure that they stay around forever, which is fantastic, but you don't have all of the different Genera- that we grow in our houses and gardens covered, and this is where we've got. This got this press release the other day from you about your missing Genera and I was very excited. Slash worried to see the two of them are. Generally very much favorites of mine. Can you tell me about what you're doing to try to sort out these missing Genera? And and the trans- county and Hoyer Genera- Jeff Genus in particular, although we've got six hundred and fifty plot collections all around the country that in no way covers all of the different plant groups that we grow in the UK. And the role of the national collections are to to collect more or less all you can of that particular Genus Plant Group documented develop conserve for the future, and and also research to and become an authority on that plot group so. Year we try and identify maybe the top ten most interesting plot groups that we would like to see somebody step forward for and become an actual connection holder for and yeah as you say to, them happened to be hoyer and try discount in tastic I cannot believe that no one has the whole national collection slightly disturbed by this spot, because the temptation to apply is great, but I don't think I've got the skills. What's involved in having a national collection or applying for one so well? The first thing really is to have a passion for your punk rock I think that probably goes. Goes without that question, but then the first thing to do would be to to get in touch ready, and we can give you. Some advice and guidance have to get stopped. It's it might be that you don't have many plans to start with them. We can give you some guidance on how to focus the scope of a connection so some groups a huge, and you might not want to own have space for all of them, but we can give advice by maybe collecting all the cultivars of a particular species within that group for everything that was intr- introduced by certain breeder or person. And then yeah, then the next thing is to start collecting and documenting and making sure that you've got good labeling. Systems and records are in order, and then yeah, you can make an application to have an extra clock election soons easy, but how how many plants are we talking about here? I? mean how many different Hoya species of you identified. That might might come under this hoyer national collection. Is it many well? It's difficult to say because there's about eighteen species and cultivars currently in the rhs plot finder, which is what we use as general. Guide to to what is currently available but I. I've no doubt there are plenty more available with specialists around the country, so it would be interesting to see for of these more tropical plant group. Currently easing cultivation in the UK and what you find out so sometimes people started thinking Oh. This is like a nice small plot report. Collect that, but the more you start digging, the more you realize how much she's out there.
Why Was a Doctor Once Ridiculed for Recommending Hand Washing?
"Even, when there isn't a pandemic gone, we all know were supposed to wash our hands especially before we eat or after we've touched something gross, but that wasn't always the case. As recently as the eighteen hundreds, a doctor was mocked for even suggesting that physicians wash their hands before working with patients, and that dear listener is how we begin the strange and sad story of Nets, some of ice, a nineteenth century doctor sometimes called the father of infection control. them vice was born in Hungary in eighteen, eighteen and graduating medical school. He started a job at Vienna. General Hospital in Austria in eighteen forty six there there. He became a gas to the mortality rate of new mothers in one of the hospitals wards. In this ward up to eighteen percent of new mothers were dying from what was then called child, bed, fever or pure berle fever. We know today that this is a fever caused by infection of the reproductive or urinary tract in new mothers? Yet another of the hospital's wards where midwives instead of doctors delivered all of the babies, only about two percent of mothers died of this then mysterious fever. similize vice began reasoning his way to the root of the problem. He considered climate and crowding, but eventually ruled those factors out in the end. The midwives themselves seems to be the only real difference between the two wards. Then Zuma vice had an epiphany one of the hospitals doctors, a pathologist accidentally nicked himself the scalpel that hit used during an autopsy of one of these unfortunate mothers. The doctor was sick and with child bed fever and he died. Zamel vice made the connection that doctors were performing autopsies on patients who died of child, had fever, and then immediately afterward going to deliver babies without stopping to wash their hands. He suspected that this was the source of the deadly problem. We spoke by with Dana Towards e eski philosophy professor at Purdue University whose name I hope I'm pronouncing correctly. She explained, basically has hypothesis here was that it was cadaveric matter from scalpels, the entered the pathologists blood, and caused the infection and same material could be transferred to the women on the hands of the doctors, because the doctors do autopsies, and then go straight to examine the women who had given birth without washing their hands, changing their clothes, or basically taking any hygienic measures at all, he then tested this hypothesis by requiring people who had performed autopsies to wash their hands with chloride of lime, a disinfectant before attending the weapon and this, the mortality rate in the first clinic fell to that of the second. You'd think that some of fellow doctors would have lauded him for this discovery, but you'd be wrong. You see in the eighteen forties. Germ theory hadn't been conceived yet. That's the theory that diseases are caused by organisms, not visible to the naked eye and people still suspected the diseases transferred from one person to another via toxic. Not Bacteria or viruses, this was called miasma theory in washing their hands. They probably wanted to be rid of whatever was causing a bad. Not to kill germs that might wreak havoc on them or someone else. We also spoke by email, but Michael Melanson, an adjunct professor of medicine at. University he said physicians of Vices. Time simply did not understand or believe that something microscopic could be wreaking such havoc on their patients. They literally believed their own is less. We feel too smug. Consider how many people currently embrace a lack of COVID, nineteen deaths among people like me geographically racially economically or otherwise as evidence that scientists are overestimating the pandemics risk. Better hand washing regimens dramatically improved death rates at the maternity ward, but some vices colleagues were at best miffed at the implication that their ignorance was killing their own patients, and perhaps implication that midwives were better at delivering babies than they were. It didn't help that Zimmer Vice essentially laid the deaths of the wards mothers at the feet of his superiors. His own supervisor countered that the hospitals new ventilation system must be the reason for the decline in maternity deaths. Also, Zimbabwe's was a Hungarian in Austria A. Working in country in the throes of xenophobia. So those doctors rejected his theories and some of ice himself as being inferior, they opted to stick with their miasma theory, and for good measure in eighteen, forty nine did not renews vices appointment. As vice eventually got a medical position in Budapest where he according to the British Medical Journal quote publicly harangued doctors nurses about hand, washing and reduced maternal mortality. He eventually published a book on the subject some fourteen years later, but it was poorly written and poorly received. Possibly, experiencing mental disorder or extreme stress from his rejection by the medical establishment, Zim of ice ended up a patient in an asylum in eighteen sixty five weeks later, he was dead of an infection from a wound that he received in the facility. She was just forty seven years old. similize left behind monumental legacy, but the tragedy of his story has made it Garner a few minutes. One of those being that demo vice was the first suggested theory about doctors transmitting germs. Kaletsky said he wasn't really a pioneer. Other people before Zamel vice had hit upon the idea that child bed fever could be transmitted from doctor or midwife to patient for example Alexander Gordon of Aberdeen showed in Seventeen Ninety. Five child had fever was almost always transmitted by doctors or midwives, and also that it was connected to a kind of streptococcal skin rash. He also thought that the best treatment was copious bleeding.
How congress is trying to end child abuse online
"Quick heads up for listeners. This episode covers the issue of online child abuse. Back in January reset made an episode about child predators, using online gaming and chat websites, and at the end of that episode we did a call out to listeners, which is how we got to hear from awesome. If we don't tackle this issue, quick enough I think it would cast a long shadow on the gaming. Community has complacent sort of behavior. Awesome college is a blogger who lives in a small town in northern now Geria-. He's also Gamer and he says he's witnessed a lot of questionable behavior on multiplayer online games and chat platforms like discord. We were in the discord server, noticing the two people who were involved so the Predator and prey. They were interacting very weirdly in very sexually on this score, and in that case it was the adult just unconventionally sort of an appropriate or someone else and the other person. Not Quite understanding what that meant. We did officiate worked sort of investigate what was happening and you know this is Stephanie Child in. All of us in in in discover, we know we did not want express it explicitly. We sort of like Dylan and private, and eventually just sort of kicked out the predatory person in question, but we were all pretty disturbed to say the least. It wakened me to the reality that it happens on a larger scale. You know if this person exists. there's probably a whole lot more than out there. It fills me with disgust. It hits pretty close to home especially for me. Because my younger brother, he's about fourteen years old now you know. He plays video games to in his own discord to it makes me were for my own brother, but it makes be worried for. The young people who are playing video games. I think the issue of Chop addition should be fixed. I affirm some legislature and second. It should be also addressed by game companies, and not just game companies, but also like Chow platforms like this scored accountable for this sort of behavior, and maybe you have to do away with the pretense of a little bit of privacy to ensure that everybody everybody's safe. What, awesome is proposing to have laws to protect children and to force gaming companies to step in and fix this. That's essentially what's being proposed in the US right now, but the consequences of those particular initiatives could be far more wide reaching than you might think. Today on the show. To new bills have been proposed in the US this year to deal with the issue of online child predation, we take a look at what these bills could mean for children and for online privacy and civil liberties. I'm Ariel Zim Ross this is reset. Adi Robertson senior reporter for the verge. Catch me up on the two bills that were introduced this year to address the issue of child predation online I know. The first one was introduced in the Senate in March. Can you tell me about it? Yes, so this is the first bill. It's probably the better known one. It's called the IT act which stands for. For eliminating abusive and rampant neglect of interactive technologies, and this bill basically tries to tackle child sexual abuse by going after the companies whose platforms it's happening on its premises, sort of that companies don't have enough of an incentive to do things that would prevent children from either having sexual abuse material of the spread, or from being targeted and so it just. Strips Legal Protection Section to thirty of the Communications Decency Act it. ADDS carve out that makes these companies much more vulnerable to. And State Law enforcement around child, sexual abuse and less, they meet, either sort of nebulous defined reasonable standard or the guidelines of a team. That's going to be assembled. It's going to include the Attorney General and head of Homeland Security in the earned act WHO's responsible for stopping online child abuse who has to take action? This is about tech companies. It's about websites. If theoretically about APPs sort of about games, it's anyone. Anyone who operates a quote Interactive Computer Service Online? They would under it just face this huge new punishment unless they meet a set of standards that sort of don't really exist yet. So this is the first act that has gone really directly at stripping away legal protections if companies don't take specific actions to specifically fight online child abuse. Okay, and that's where the name comes from right. That's why it's called. Earn it. Right the idea is that section. Two thirty protections would be conditional on meeting these standards, so they would have to earn protections. And this is a thing that people have been talking about for a long time with regards to section two thirty. We just did an episode about President. Trump trying to alter section to thirty so in a way this bill is part of a much larger fight section to thirty sort of ironically was created so that sites would. Be Able to curate things on their service and know what was going on in the service without becoming liable for everything that was posted on it, so if you libel somebody on a Yelp, review then you can be held liable for liable, but yelp will not get pseudo for it, and this is a really huge issue for any company that operates either at a massive scale. Like facebook or Google or really anything that uses user generated content so newspaper sites actually have used section to thirty to protect themselves when somebody says something. That's not true in their comments.
Send non-holiday cards now
"Today's tip is to send cards now. Why wait till Christmas? In this time of social distancing. We're not able to interact in person as we usually are so plenty of families and friends have found new ways of connecting my brothers and their families and my parents and I for instance to a giant Zim. Call from time to time. Today's tip is to add one more mode of connection to the mix holiday cards. Well more like not holiday cards as the case may be but the same sentiment in mind lots of people send holiday cards to family and friends every December. This is a great way to maintain relationships especially with people. We don't get to see all the time. I love photos of far-flung friends and relations decked out in holiday gear but December is a long way away. Why not reach out to the people you love now if you send holiday cards you probably have a spreadsheet or address book with all the recipients or if you've recently gotten married hosted a big party maybe you have. The address list used for invitations. You can use these lists to inspire your outreach to people you care about but can't see right now. Here's how you do it every day. Pluck a few people off your holiday card or invitation list and send a Carter Knit. Any stationery cards or paper will do use the freebies. You get from nonprofits. Heck you could even repurpose the photos envelopes from your actual holiday card. If you have kids in your home or neighborhood you can enlist them to decorate cards. Or if you're crafty you can have fun creating the cards yourself inside the cards you can write something simple like thinking of you or sending love from our house to yours of course longer notes are always welcome but the main idea is just to let these people know you're thinking of them and care about them. You don't have to be systematic with your letter writing. No need to start with the as and work your way down to the Z's there's no set number of cards per day you need to send in. It's okay if you write to some people on your list and don't get to others at all. Just let the inspire you to reach out. Sending a few cards can spread a lot of joy. Receiving a card can be a real. Pick ME UP. And writing to people we care about. Feels good to
C.S. Lewis, Essayist
"Cs Lewis was born in Belfast Ireland. In eighteen ninety eight he would die in nineteen sixty three and what a life he lived. He was known as Jack and far as we can tell that was because of one of his dogs names from his early childhood who was Jiaxi and CS. Lewis accepted that name and adopted that name for himself. He was an oxbridge scholar. Which meant that? He how to position at both Oxford University and Cambridge University. He's been hailed as a philosopher and apologist theologian of course he's probably best known for his NARNIA chronicles. His actual profession was as a professor a chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature. Well let's take a look at his life and let's bring one piece of that life to the surface and that is Lewis as essayist while he was baptized as a child into the Anglican Church as a teenager he drifted into agnostics Zim. And then at the Ripe Age fifteen. He declared himself to be an atheist as a teenager. He also served epic poetry. He was taken by norse mythology and all of the medieval literature. Cs Lewis goes off to France. He saw the horrors of World War. One being involved in trench warfare a shell exploded not too far from him taking the lives of two of his buddies and injuring him and then he was sent back to the UK to serve out the rest of the war on the home front went on to his life of scholarship and eventually he would be influenced by George MacDonald. Who would lead him from atheism to a generic theism in a belief in God in general and then through his friendship with Jr token and continued reading of McDonald and others. He was led from theism to Christianity. Tolkien would have much preferred that. Lewis had joined him in the Catholic Church but Louis went the way of anglicanism went back into his Anglican Church. Louis like to call this Christianity Mirror Christine Hannity and of course that's the title of one of his books. Well the thing I want to talk about Louis is his work as an essayist and one essay in particular comes up from time of nineteen forty one to nineteen forty-three once again. Europe is embroiled in a World War and World War Two and during this time. Cs Lewis is doing radio addresses during air raids over the BBC. So if you can put that setting in your mind these are some of the great essays that come from the pen of Louis in this context. Some of these. Sac PREACHED SERMONS IN CHURCHES. And some he prepared specifically for the radio in a number of them were published as books later the one in particular that I wanNA talk to you about is called the wait of glory. It's an essay and it's also a title of book of essays in it. Lewis says that almost all our modern philosophies have been devised to convince us that the good of man is to be found on this Earth at such a twentieth century things such a modern thing to neglect God and push him out of our lives to neglect the eternal and the transcendent to be fixated on the horizon of the material. Well Lewis says there is far more to ultimate reality than what we see and it is the weight of glory so he writes. It may be possible for each to think too much of his own personal glory hereafter. It is hardly possible for him to think too often or too deeply about that of his neighbor. The load or wait or burden of my neighbors glory should be laid on my back a load so heavy that only humility can carry it in. The back of the proud will be broken. It is a serious thing to live in a society of possible gods and Goddesses to remember that the dullest and most uninteresting person you can talk to May one day be a creature. Which if you saw it now. You'd be strongly tempted to worship or else a whore corruption such as you now meet if at all only in a nightmare and he'll go on to say there are no ordinary people because we all have this weight of glory.
Zoom accused of misleading users with 'end-to-end encryption' claims
"Right let's talk a little bit about zoom. Let's do it Zim clams that mutations that have no participants on the phone are secured with end to end encryption K. That sounds fine. The intercept though reports that zoom uses. What's known as transport encryption using T- alas which let's zoom access unencrypted video and audio from meetings for ad targeting purposes as zoom spokesperson told the intercept quotes? When we use the phrase end to end. In our other literature it is in reference to the connection being encrypted from Zoom and point to zoom end points and currently it's not possible to enable e two e encryption for zoom video means a user's filed suit against Zoom in San Jose California Federal Court over. Its used to the FACEBOOK API to share data with facebook without disclosing it to zoom customers. Zoom has since removed the function from. Its Iowa's APP. And finally malware researcher found that zoom it used pre installation scripts to unpack the APP in place in the APPs folder on Mac os and uses a misleading prompt to gain root privileges. This is not militias itself but it is a method used by malware. Just a little shady. The lawsuit has to do with something that the zoom is walking back now but saying your end to end encryption. Because it's encrypted between the zoom and points is a very creative way of redefining end to end encryption and is not end to end encryption and then encryption is what signal does. It's what apple does with. Facetime and apple does multi multi person video chat that is end to end encrypted. Meaning that Apple doesn't have the keys and cannot see what's happening saying it's end to end from zoom and point to zoom in point says. Oh we can see what is going on in your video chat if we need to. That means that they could possibly access recordings. That means that if a government came and said you have to hand this over that they would be compelled legally to handle it over because they have access to it that is not into corruption. And I'm not saying you should stop using zoom. Facebook MESSENGER is also not decrypted at this point and plenty of people use it. All I'm saying is you should know it's not into end. Encrypted when you use it that it is encrypted in transport and that's fine as long as you don't need it to be undo an encrypted and like Shannon said on our show on Friday if you need a higher level of encryption you might want to look at signal or something else to us rather than zoom but I just think it's. It's this is the problem with zoom. It's just Kinda shady. How it it does this sort of thing where it's like yeah we're ending encrypted between zoom and points. It's like that's not what that means. Come on stop it.
Remote Work and Our New Reality
"Has really risen through the ranks gets the third popular APP in the APP store at the moment. Why do you think zoom has been so emergent? I think one of the reasons him has sort of broken out is that they have observed all the friction that all video conferencing platforms have had in the past where it's hard to get account. It's hard to set up. It's hard to invite people to people have less patients. These days for products that have too much friction to on boarding. You know. There's always sort of the joke of conference. 'cause like hey who just joined the line or like who? Are you hate to be getting the right lane? Zoom fixed. Almost all of these usability issues and I'd say there's also little moments of user delight right I think virtual backgrounds have been one of the ways that people are breaking the ice or making conversations more friendly when they're on Zim for those listening. It's a way that you can completely off you skate. Your background and make it. Look as if you're an a green room and put any photo in the back and I think people underestimate the amount of technology that's behind the scenes. They're running a global network. They're carrying hundreds of thousands of minutes of calls at any given time those infrastructure that scaling too dramatic degree. And that's really hard to deal and they've spent a lot of time over the last few years. They've grown up as a company to build a reliable high quality. Hi Fidelity this. That's why broken out tier point David. This is new ground as millions of people are flooding these online platforms. We've already seen some outages with tools like Microsoft team last week several gaming platforms have had outages over the past week or so including Nintendo switch xbox and discord so there is some trepidation among people that all of us working and learning from home is straining that underlying infrastructure of the Internet. And that's something that particular impact home. Networks what are the limitations of some of these cleberation tools? Well I we all know. A debt of gratitude network operators that are running the global infrastructure. They're adding capacity. That are making sure that the quote unquote the pipes are not getting too full. That is not an easy job in these are the people that are working and they're probably working from home right now but they're working tirelessly as somebody who comes from an infrastructure operations background. I always think it's good to give a shout out to those people that are generally think. Listen until there's a problem a lot of people don't recognize their actual people who are keeping your running totally an adding capacity and re-routing things and reprioritising traffic. Were all the beneficiaries of that for all of us in our from home. Rodley what you end up. Seeing those companies invest in infrastructure. The ones that know how to scale and have planned for sort of elastic capacity. And when you're seeing these platforms teams had an outage and things like that. These are platforms that have been sort of cut and paste put together over the years from different products from legacy products and when you're building on top of infrastructure legacy technology stack legacy video codex. It's very hard able to scale up and deliver the kind of experience people are expecting so you are seeing new technologies like run. The world and company called tandem as well. That's the way to do real time. Water Cooler conversations when you're not doing a scheduled meeting and companies like zoom that are really taking advantage of this opportunity. So it's one thing to have these tools that help us work in small teams. It's another thing when these events get at a much larger scale many many conferences festivals sporting events have been canceled response to the pandemic. What are some of the promising alternatives? You're seeing to physical events. I think virtual conferences is brave new world that we're all going to start exploring and realized that there's actually a lot of benefits in addition to being able to access it from anywhere from your phone or your laptop and not needing to pay for travel hotels for airfare and so forth. There's also just a lot more engagement that can happen in an online context. The quite frankly is easier in many ways than the offline in real life version. So think about when you go to a conference and that awkward moment during cocktail hour. And you're not sure who to approach. You're not sure how to break into that conversation or even who? You should be meeting with me. In an online context now people can be chatting with other folks but how full context of who they are. Why they're there who they're looking to me and so forth and platforms can do better matching so you are making sure every minute is a good use of time. Always look for silver linings and moment of crisis dramatic change. And you know as an introvert. I think this is golden moment. There's a lot of people that don't get an opportunity to speak up. That don't have an opportunity to participate or that. The conversation get steered into a certain direction. Just because there's a lot of voices in a room does somebody who is often on panels and somebody who's listening to people that are on panels. I think panels are the lowest -delity form of communication. I've loved the idea that an online conference you can. Maybe suggest questions do a lot more q? And a. You can help prepare the panel. Much better and people can better socializing surface questions. You don't just have a moderator trended side what's interesting there's so many opportunities in an online format through all this different communication mediums to just cultivate and curate. A much better experience the way that you connect with someone can be through video. It can be through audio. It can be through text and by allowing the various options you also attract different types of personalities that otherwise would have been to intimidate it to go to a conference and so what's interesting is when you see a lot of these conferences switch online format not only do more people join because quite frankly. The Bar and ten is much lower but more people participate. Because they're not so afraid to chat in an online chat room. The courage required to do that is a lot lower than it is to go speak to someone in real life
