"At 8 p.m. they voted. Everyone who wanted to join the MRC moved to the left, everyone who wanted to maintain the status quo moved to the right. Nearly every soldier moved left. The MRC and by extension the Bolshevik party now controlled the Peter and Paul fortress, along with its huge cache of weapons and ammunition, and its direct line of sight on the winter palace. Where Alexander kerensky lived, worked and apparently prayed for the Bolsheviks to take their best shot. That night, John Reid headed to the small ne institute, headquarters of the Petrograd Soviet. He reported in the hall I ran into some of the minor Bolshevik leaders. One showed me a revolver. The game is on, he said, and his face was pale. Whether we move or not, the other side knows it must finish us or be finished. Read then witness the speech by Trotsky. We are asked if we intend to come out Trotsky said. I can give a clear answer to that question. The Petrograd Soviet feels that at last, the moment has arrived when the power must fall into the hands of the Soviets. The transfer of government will be accomplished by the all Russian Congress. Whether an armed demonstration is necessary, will depend on those who wish to interfere with the all Russian Congress. We feel that our government entrusted to the personnel of the provisional cabinet is a pitiless and helpless government, which only awaits the sweep of the broom of history to give way to a really popular government. But we are trying to avoid a conflict, even now today. We hope that the all Russian Congress will take into its hands that power and authority, which rests upon the organized freedom of the people. If, however, the government wants to utilize the short period it is expected to live 24 48 or 72 hours to attack us, and we shall answer with counter attacks. Blow for blow, steel, for iron. So this is pretty heavy stuff. But then, later that same night with everything so clearly moving in a decisive direction. There was an unexpected flinch from the Bolsheviks in the MRC. The senior officer of the Petrograd military district invited them to engage in further talks over who had veto over what orders. Maybe an arrangement could be worked out. The Bolshevik leadership made a calculated decision to withdraw. Their unilateral claim to military authority. Probably, because they were not quite ready to make their move and they didn't want to spark something they couldn't control. So they backed down. Or at least they seemed to back down. Which was quite enough to convince Alexander kerensky that he had the Bolsheviks right where he wanted them. This was a signal the Bolsheviks did not actually believe they were strong enough to back up their big talk. As soon as he heard the news, kerensky issued orders to strike, giving the Bolsheviks exactly the attack they needed to claim that they were launching a counter attack. The revolution was in danger. Petrograd must be say it. Next week we will all wake up on the morning of October 24th, 1917. And shake, the world..

"It read the headquarters of the Petrograd military district refused to recognize the MRC. In doing so, the headquarters break with the revolutionary garrison of the Petrograd Soviet of workers and soldiers deputies. The headquarters becomes a direct weapon of counter revolutionary force. Then they staked a very bold claim to military power. The protection of revolutionary order from counter revolutionary attacks, rests with the revolutionary soldiers directed by the MRC. No directives to the garrison, not signed by the MRC should be considered valid. They finish this by saying the revolution is in danger. Long live the revolutionary garrison. With this statement, they proclaimed their ultimate authority over all military decisions in Petrograd, and further, said that any order that contradicted the MRC was ipso facto, an act of counter revolution. This declaration was issued early on October 22nd, and there was a plausible belief that there may be a major confrontation that very afternoon. October 22nd had been declared a day for celebrating the Petrograd Soviet, and there were lots of banquets and rallies and speeches planned. But it was also the anniversary of Napoleon's withdrawal from Moscow, which was itself an annual nationalistic celebration. Conservative elements in the army indicated they planned to observe this celebration with parades of their own. But as the day progressed, the energy in Petrograd was predominantly left wing, not right wing. Trotsky gave an electrifying speech at an opera house, reminding everyone of how great things would be once the Soviet took power for itself. Soviet power was destined not only to put an end to the sufferings in the trenches he thundered, it would provide land and stop internal disorder. The Soviet government will give everything the country has to the poor and the soldiers at the front. You, bourgeois, own two coats, give one to the soldier freezing in the trenches. You have warm boots, stay at home, your boots are needed by a worker. People applauded rapturously. Trotsky called we will defend the cause of the workers in the peasants to the last drop of blood, who will join us. Everyone cheered and raised their hands. There was no great confrontation on October 22nd. Then the following day, the MRC finished appointing their commissars, nearly all of whom doubled as members of the Bolshevik military organization. The mood of the city now shifted decisively in the direction of hoping the second Congress of Soviets declared itself the seat of a new national government. Backed by the arms of the MRC. As most of the members of the Bolshevik party had hoped, they were succeeding at organizing their coup under the popular legitimizing banner of Soviet authority. On the afternoon of October 23rd, a group of MRC commissars went to the Peter and Paul fortress to convince them to join the MRC chain of command. The commander of the fortress, relented to demands to hold a democratic assembly of his soldiers. Once gathered, the men were harangued by mensheviks and SRs, imploring them to stay in the regular chain of command and not join insurrectionary hotheads. Whose hot headedness would lead them all to their doom. Meanwhile the MRC commissars most of them Bolsheviks said join us or Petrograd will fall either to the Germans or to the counter revolution. Trotsky arrived and gave a speech urging the garrison to join with the MRC and defend the revolution..

"A mood of chaotic, noisy, bustling, and increasingly paranoid anticipation, saturated Petrograd. And to set the scene, I'm just going to hand the reins over to John Reid and let him describe what he saw in this final week. Petrograd presented a curious spectacle in those days. He wrote in the factories, the committee rooms were filled with stacks of rifles. Couriers came and went, and the red guard drilled. In all the barracks, meetings every day, and all night long interminable hot arguments. On the streets, the crowds thickened towards gloomy evening, pouring in slow, voluble tides up and down the nevsky, fighting for the newspapers. Hold ups increased to such an extent that it was dangerous to walk down side streets. One afternoon I saw a crowd of several hundred people beat and trampled to death a soldier caught stealing. Mysterious individual circulated around the shivering women who waited in queue long cold hours for bread and milk, whispering the Jews had cornered the food supply, and that while the people starved, Soviet members lived luxuriously. At small, there were strict guards at the doors and the outer gates demanding everyone's pass. The committee rooms buzzed and hummed all day and all night. Hundreds of soldiers and workmen slept on the floor, wherever they could find room. Upstairs in the great hall, a thousand people crowded to the upper area sessions of the Petrograd Soviet. And in The Rain, the bitter chill, the great throbbing city under gray skies, rushing faster and faster. Towards what? On October 21st, the military revolutionary committee held a conference of representatives from the garrisons of Petrograd in order to coordinate what was ostensibly a municipal defense force, but which everyone well knew was a Bolshevik led military apparatus. The delegates in the room, many of them members of the Bolshevik military organization passed a resolution calling on the forthcoming Congress of Soviets to take power. Then they set about ensuring that when the Congress of Soviets met that the MRC would wield ultimate military authority in the capital. They sent a delegation to the ranking officer of the Petrograd military district, delivering a message that henceforth, soldiers in the garrison would only follow orders countersigned by the MRC. The officer scoffed, and said, I don't recognize your delegation, your committee, or your orders. You have no authority here whatsoever. This delegation then returned to MRC headquarters and announced that the regular chain of command military officers had rejected their authority. So they drafted a resolution and promulgated it on the morning of October 22nd..

"He said, if it is to be a revolver with cartridges, this can not mean anything but technical preparation for an uprising. The cartridges have to be procured. The revolver has to be loaded, and cartridges alone will not be enough. Either openly, renounced the slogan all power to the Soviets, or start the uprising. There is no middle course. Glennon also debunked the notion that they should wait until the counter revolution struck before making their own move. What if the corneille fights of the second draft will have learned a thing or two? He asked. What if they wait for hunger riots to begin? For the front to be broken through, for Petrograd to be surrendered before they begin. What then? There is no objective way out, and can be none. Except a dictatorship of the corneille fights or a dictatorship of the proletariat. So Lenin wasn't even bothering to hide his intentions here. And what's more, he's lifting the curtain on the whole anything we do will merely be defensive thing, because he's quite openly saying, we can't wait for them to strike first. We have to strike first. The best defense is a good offense. The only defense is a good offense. Over the next few days, the Bolshevik coup was the talk of Petrograd. But people weren't exactly eager to get involved. The military organization of the SRs and Petrograd voted to remain neutral in any coming Bolshevik insurrection. They would neither rise with the Bolsheviks nor help the government put them down. They would wait on the sidelines. But they did warn their members to be on the lookout for a full on right wing coup, which was also expected to practically any moment. They sent out a circular to members warning them to be fully prepared for the merciless suppression, possible salts by the black hundreds, pogromists and counter revolutionaries. On October 19th, the leaders of the garrison of the all important Peter and Paul fortress voted against joining any Bolshevik insurrection. With reports like this in hand, Alexander kerensky's optimism was fully cemented. The intelligence coming into him indicated only a small number of soldiers were actually with the Bolsheviks. And he wasn't wrong about that. There was something like a 160,000 soldiers garrisoned in Petrograd with another 85,000 in the general area. Of those only a small fraction were actively participating in the coup. At most the number was in the tens of thousands, not the hundreds of thousands. The vast majority of the soldiers clearly wanted no part of it. But here kerensky made a fatal miscalculation. His brief time in the winter palace appears to have infected him with the same fatal case of blinkered myopia that took down Nicholas and Alexandra. Kerensky was convinced he was only threatened by a small group of malcontents, and that the vast majority of Russians were still with him. Kerensky took the small number of Bolshevik die hard to mean that those soldiers who declined to participate would defend his government. And boy did he misread that. They didn't plan to defend his government. They planned to sit on the sidelines and watch. They weren't going to fight for Lenin. But they also, sure as hell were not going to fight for kerensky either..

"Back in July, Lenin and the central committee said an uprising was premature, while the defiantly optimistic military organization marched out into the streets anyway. Now, here in October, it's the military organization leaders trying to dissuade Lenin and the central committee from doing something rash. Their attitude was we're not ready, and we're not sure that the people will turn out. Yes, they'll come out if the second Congress of Soviets calls them. But for the Bolsheviks alone, they won't. The descent from party leaders who were just below the central committee on the Bolshevik org chart. Just goes to further show that, as we've seen many times, despite typical portrayals of the Bolshevik party as some kind of hyper disciplined dictatorial extension of Lenin's will, that's never how they worked in practice. Sure, Lennon exerted a great deal of influence on the party. He exerted more individual influence than any other individual leader of any other party. But that is hardly the same as everybody doing what Lennon said all the time. All through the revolution, the Bolsheviks were constantly at on to with each other over strategy, tactics, theory, timing, means, and ends. Different sections and committees disagreed with each other. The Moscow committee wasn't on the same page as the Petrograd committee. Rank and file agents would just go off and do their own thing. Often ignoring the central committee entirely. Orders going from the top down were not followed. Demands coming from the bottom up, forced the leaders to alter their plans. Now, maybe they were a more cohesive herd of cats than any other party. But they were still mostly a herd of cats. As is evidenced by Lenin being more or less on the verge of a stroke, every waking moment of his life. But though there was an awful lot of pushback, Lenin and the central committee refused to change course. On October 16th, the Bolshevik central committee held another meeting to grapple with the fact that lots of party members were extremely skeptical. At this meeting, Lennon, stood on one side, while genovia and Camino stood on the other. These were the three longest tenured Bolsheviks in the room, and they couldn't agree on what to do. Cam and F, thought the whole thing was a bad idea. Not only was an insurrection too risky, it was pointless..

"While he was quoted as saying Petrograd is in danger. I say to myself, let God take care of Petrograd. They fear that if Petrograd is lost, the central revolutionary organization will be destroyed to that I answer that I rejoice when all these organizations are destroyed, for they will bring nothing but disaster upon Russia. With, quotes like this floating around, it wasn't hard to paint a picture that the liberals and capitalists and their agents in the provisional government were downright eager to toss the people of Petrograd to the Germans. The only thing that could save them was a self organized military apparatus by the people and for the people. Like, say, the recently formed military revolutionary committee. The other fear of the Bolsheviks played on was that if the Germans didn't sack Petrograd, then it would probably be some counter revolutionary alliance of military officers, gangs of black hundreds Cossacks and street thugs, taking another shot at a cornelia style military coup. Rumors of such a coup swirled in the capital in the fall of 1917, and the Bolsheviks did everything they could to amplify and exaggerate the threat. Trotsky said, in essence, our strategy was offensive. We prepared to assault the government, but our agitation rested on the claim that the enemy was getting ready to disperse the Congress of Soviets, and it was necessary, mercilessly to repulse them. Stalin later said the revolution, that is the Bolshevik party. Disguised its offensive actions behind a smokescreen of defenses. In order to make it easier to attract into its orbit, uncertain, hesitating elements. Though the party had decided to go on offense, they knew it would only really work if it was sold as defense. And that's exactly how they said about selling themselves. Not as a self interested click, making a power graph, but as the defenders of Petrograd and the revolution. That the Bolsheviks were now plotting an insurrection was an open secret. People absolutely knew what was going on. On October 12th, one daily paper said, there is definite evidence that the Bolsheviks are energetically preparing for a coming out on October 20. That is, to coincide with the convening of the second all Russian Congress of Soviets, which the Bolsheviks themselves had called for. A right wing paper prophesized the vile and bloody events of July 3 to 5 were only a rehearsal. A menshevik paper tried to derail the proposed coup by publishing a story allegedly revealing the details of the secret Bolshevik plan, including maps of their likely targets. Maxim Gorky, a former friend ally and sympathizer of Lenin, who had sent drifted into a sort of intellectualized middle ground between the Bolsheviks and the mensheviks, urged the Bolshevik leaders to deny rumors of an insurrection, though he did agree that they were being pushed into this by the looming threat of counter revolution. The military section of the SRs on the other hand thought the forces of counter revolution would only be triggered if such an insurrection was launched. They issued a statement telling their members to stay home and not listen to dangerous hotheads..

"But to achieve this, a Bolshevik coup had to be for something. And indeed, it was. In the fall of 1917, the party had a positive platform aimed at delivering what the people desired, as well as a negative program, aimed at preventing what the people feared. The Bolsheviks hammered both sides to this program in the lead up to the coup. The positive side was encapsulated in a party editorial from October 4th, 1917 that ended with a clear direct and uncompromising 5 point platform. One all power to the Soviets, both in the capital and in the provinces. Two. Immediate truce on all fronts, and honest peace between peoples. Landlord estates to the peasants, without compensation. Four. Worker control of industrial production. 5, a faithfully and honestly elected constituent assembly. So as the Bolsheviks drove towards power, this is what they were saying they were going to do with their power. And they were consciously ticking off each of the major constituencies they needed to win over. For the soldiers, peace, now, immediately. For the peasants, land, now immediately. For the workers control of the factories, now immediately. They promise no more delays, hesitations or convoluted justifications. They promise to do away with the hypocritical and contradictory nonsense that have been floated by the liberals and the mensheviks and the SR since February. Silver Lennon, it didn't matter that in October 1917, the Bolsheviks didn't technically have any supporters among the peasantry, who formed the mass majority of Russia, who cares. When the Bolsheviks take power, we will transfer land from the largest states to the peasants, and voila all the peasants will love us. But if those were the desires to be fulfilled. What about the fears to be prevented? This was mostly aimed at the workers and soldiers at Petrograd, who, the Bolsheviks needed to make their move. As we discussed last time, kerensky gave the Bolsheviks a huge gift by floating the idea of evacuating Petrograd and letting the German sacket. And remember, the Germans are just a couple hundred miles away at this point. The population of Petrograd understandably freaked out, and the Bolsheviks enthusiastically hammered the idea that the capitalists in the provisional government were basically in league with the Kaiser. The Bolsheviks were also helped mightily by intemperate public remarks that confirm the most exaggerated accusations. Mikhail rodenko, the old chairman of the state Duma, the first leader of the first provisional executive committee after the resignation of the.

"10.73 Zeno's revolution. Okay, we're back. All is well. Just hit a crazy streak of busy times and some rotten luck. The event in LA went great though and I can't wait to do more of those in the future. And I must also plug that this Wednesday, November 3rd, 2021, I will be doing an online book talk with doctor faith hillis, University of Chicago Professor of Russian history. But this is not about my book. This time I will be the interviewer. Doctor hillis wrote a really great book called utopias discontents. Russian emigres and the quest for freedom, 1830s to 1930s. If you have any interest at all in the Russian Revolution, and folks, if you're listening to this, that's you, please, by all means tune in. It will be a deep dive on the lives of everyone living in those Russian colonies scattered across Europe that served as embryos for the Russian Revolution. The event is in partnership with the New York public library and I will drop a link to it in the show notes, but please do come out. Doctor hillis is great. The book is great and it'll be a great night. Now last time we ended with the Bolsheviks momentous decision on the night of October 10th, 1917, to stage an armed coup d'etat. What I want to talk about today is what happened in the two weeks after this decision was made, but before they actually went through with it. Because it would be very easy to just glide from one to the other, and skip over the fact that one of the most famous armed coups in history was by no means a foregone conclusion. These two weeks were a high wire act of tension, setbacks and conflict, not just among the Bolsheviks and their various rivals, but among the Bolsheviks themselves. Our loose guide for this week's episode is an old friend. The American journalist John Reed. Reed has already made an appearance on the podcast because as you will recall, in 1913, he embedded himself with Pancho villa and wrote a series of newspaper dispatches from the Mexican revolution collected and published as a book the following year called insurgent Mexico, which if you haven't read insurgent Mexico by all means go read it. But read is far more famous for his other book about being in the chaotic thick of revolution..

What if conversations and Center standard operating procedures. But we need to have the same in the conference we need to think. Hey what if is in happened way before it would give me more time to have options or to Make some changes provide some options to the attendees but basically when i found out we're three weeks out from the conference so i had limited choices to what i can do. Second i learned was. I knew in that moment. The best thing i can do is i need to communicate. I need to communicate with my people. The attendees And i just needed to make sure that they're included in any decision and that i let them know what's going on so they don't feel like they're in the dark. I was very conscious. These people trusted me. They give me their money. I want to make sure that they know that. I got their back and that you know there are some options. I'm looking at when we actually had a discussion on that call before the cancellation was confirmed. Because the accession of lockdown of what are some options. And what.

Drinking water don't store waters or liquids in plastics preferably Certainly people are gonna do it. You know. I was just traveling on an airplane. You're going to end up with some liquids in plastics. But you don't want to be doing that every day. Ideally minimize your plastics. Good for the environment better for your body. These things do leach in particularly when you're putting hot liquids in plastics especially bad but even room temperature not fan. I don't like when people are putting plastics in room temperature again every day once in a while else. Okay that's not ideal but you're just our culture our environment so you can.

Yeah, did really kick me off guard for for two reasons first of all that it was. It's been thirty years like I. You know. It just blew my mind that it's been that long and then the other thing is that so many people had been talking about. Remember. When it was all happening and you know one of my friends. Even call and she's like you're. tweeting on twitter and I'm like what? And so funny because my phone have been going up but I didn't. Never really happens. I didn't really know what was going on.

Dr oz will check in with us today and some of the data being put out by Sean Davis of the federalist Cheryl Atkinson is fantastic stuff to look at if you're interested in how this is moving and how the predictions are wrong and we are we think it's going just to try to get ahead of of what we expected manage what a real expectation should be I'm but it's some it is pretty amazing the we we've never had a mobilization healthcare mobilization as this one all the books are being rewritten I mean you know we were seeing navy ship hospitals being deployed to California in New York in record time you've got four huge including the largest hospital now in New York three thousand beds at the Javits center not only did the army corps of engineers build it for Cuomo but now they're going to be mailing it for Cuomo but because of potential down the line this being the toughest week our personnel shortages that is an amazing thing we also have eight large medical stations with two thousand beds for California three large medical stations and for small medical stations with a thousand beds the state of Washington now the additional location showing up in New Orleans and other locations in Louisiana and one in Texas as I understand it we told you about the USNS comfort and U. S. and as mercy in Los Angeles thousand beds each somehow Colbert nineteen got into the the comfort in New York that is now going to be converted I think they're gonna now take on corona virus patients there certainly takes away the overflow one thing they've noticed in New York their first there are some people in the medical community that are losing jobs I'm sure their skills could be utilized other places if they if they so desire to get into that fight different from maybe what their specialty is but just knowing your way around the hospital could probably be very helpful as of April first the number of days ago a Levin point six million N. ninety five mask respirators had been sent out twenty six point three million surgical masks five point two million face shields four point three million surgical gowns again this is all from the federal government twenty two point four million gloves seven you know we have a seven thousand eight since that I know that another three oh thousand ventilated events at ten thousand ventilators have been sat Santa medical beds going up it is quicker than I could have ever thought possible one thing that felt she said and we're we're running into an old order of the way of doing things versus the the new speed of technology and demand for for let's just say thinking out of the box because whatever book was written about pandemics is now re written starting with travel bans will be automatic public private partnerships that's the future telemedicine that is the future at home testing which they're developing that's the future this week they roll out antibody testing to see if you had a covert nineteen the new abit testicular start this week doing fifty thousand tests a day which is great anyway without she had authored navigating and on chartered and if one assumes the number of a symptomatic or minimally symptomatic cases is several times as high as the number of reported cases the case fatality rate what may be considerably less than one percent which she had said to me in the last interview I had with him which suggests the overall clinical consequences of covert nineteen may ultimately be more can again this is about you to those of a severe seasonal influenza which has a case fatality rate of approximately zero point one percent or a pandemic influenza similar to not in nineteen fifty seven and sixty eight rather than a disease similar to sars or mers which have had case fatality rates nine to ten percent and thirty six percent respectively Z. though if there's any good news for going to take any good news out of this if you look at the government records numbers as well all of this is reported when they were making their models and projections for example they thought that over a hundred and twenty one thousand Americans would be hospitalized as of yesterday with corona virus the actual number was only thirty one thousand one hundred and forty two and then if you look at the specific states there's a break down you know the state of Texas for example they predicted one thousand seven hundred and sixteen it ended up being dramatically lower like two hundred something same with Georgia they thought to be close to three thousand it was more close to a thousand and and other states all across the board in New York for example they had predicted fifty one thousand new Yorkers would be hospitalized as of yesterday the actual number was eighteen thousand three hundred and sixty eight what does that mean that means that it is not as bad as the original projections and that mitigation efforts travel ban quarantine and the guidelines as issued by the task force being listened to how are having a significant impact and I would say is a good thing for everybody now as it relates to the treatment let me just start with arm I don't know why because I watch the mob in these press conferences I have I get the very just the impression that they don't read and that they don't listen to anybody or anything other than their own points of view and mean the level of ignorance just in their questions alone is pretty spectacular you know there was this international study and I'll give it give me the details as we go on here let you know sixty three hundred doctors worldwide their number one treatment four coronaviruses hydroxy chloride wind along with zithromax and in some cases I think in other cases also adding something like vitamin C. I mean just different variations of it we know N. Y. U. S. testing hydroxy Cork when as a possible preventative that test is also being done by Colombian Dr oz will join us later because patients with lupus and rheumatoid arthritis that have been taking hydroxy Cork when are seemingly not getting or not the rate of contraction is negligible versus the general population if at all we have some people in New York doctors now up till even today now we have twenty nine according to the president yesterday twenty nine million doses of eye drops the coral Quinn right now available I know that millions were sent to Cuomo today and yesterday and millions were sent to New Jersey today and yesterday and I'd been saying to Cuomo and I wrote an op ed we put it up on Hannity dot com it's on my Twitter page that he's gotta let doctors and patients make the decision themselves because in a survey is sixty three hundred doctors if patients want the right to choose governor Cuomo let them choose if their doctor recommends it hydroxy core Quinn and as many as four thousand seriously ill corona virus patients in New York are now being treated with the drug and they've been treated by the way in New York hospitals but the problem with his plan is that he's forcing people whose doctors want the mon it but have no need to be in a hospital you can't get it any other place but a hospital and if you put it into the pharmacies and it is working in Dr oz is going to argue on this program today it's no longer anecdotal is I've been suggesting Lotta anecdotal evidence what doctors are saying what doctors are prescribing or saying what patients that have taken it are saying after having taken it it's now beyond that and he will explain in detail is some really good news to share with you today but a state health department official you know they ship now does is all over the place now the president said the the governor of New York finally is going to open it to pharmacies that will relieve some of the pressure on hospitals as we hit the apex week that his own health department task force warned about and this is that week and if he had purchased per their recommendation because they said it was worth his responsibility to do so and that this was going to happen this was foreseeable but he failed to do what I'm it what we would be a lot better shape anyway so even the president said again everyone makes their own medical decisions in consultation with your own doctor I know many of you lost your doctor lost your plan and are paying more but putting that's that's separate issue aside a Connecticut dad this is in the New York Post was on death's doorstep before chloroquine saved his life I was in the New York Post today the wife of this guy Elizabeth said when doctors for I tried hydroxy Clark when there was not an immediate noticeable response that is condition started to turn around just as doctors were about to switch him to a different treatment I want to know what works for him well a lot of doctors and a lot of people are saying that Long Island doctor says hydroxy Cork Winterset save dozens of infected nursing home patients the list of people that I can now name and doctors now supporting this is a mile long and people say you're not a doctor no but the president reads these people in the mob in the media they clearly don't want the information again what you know what's important to them at any given moment it seems to be always trivial and always hate trump because my if it if they would read the data don't believe doctor Hannity believe Dr oz because I'm not a doctor believe Dr oz listen to him all these doctors and I will list the names throughout the show today listen to them we'll get the names of all the patients that are are gladly telling their story how would help save their lives or loved ones talking about their loved ones being say because of the use of it if you have a survey worldwide and it's the number one treatment of doctors worldwide when when the country of Turkey confiscates all the hydroxy chloroquine so they can take control of it and get control of the disease within their country by using it and seventy three percent of patients in Spain or taking it and you know yeah ask yourself this simple question what are the risks well as of now they're my old that negligible and don't forget the drug has been around forty five years you know people taking for lupus rheumatoid osteo arthritis and it's an anti malarial drug and people are acting like this is just something it was cooked up in a science lab over the weekend and we just passing out like candy no there's a ton of stuff you can read about it if you can't or learn something these people are so pathetically lazy it's unbelievable by the way your life today probably looks different in your life a couple weeks ago all of our lives have changed new challenges like were you working school etcetera etcetera etcetera kids going online for.

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
Reacting to the Nintendo Direct Mini
"We recorded yesterday's episode and then the direct just dropped out of nowhere on Thursday morning which is responsible very typical. Yeah it's not. It's not very typical though right because like usually Nintendo the day before will at least tweet out like. Hey there's a direct coming tomorrow or you know like hey there's a direct coming in two days but this is kind of unprecedented for them to just be like okay here. It is and it's it's odd because right you know. Usually they count on that to like bring in a bunch of people to watch that that premier live. I honestly thought it was really strange this morning to wake up and see like. Oh Nintendo just dropped thirty news games. Once as you. I see you could probably tell that. I'm a little annoyed because usually back as you can hear Zach Ryan joining us also chiming in right now. Is Brian Alto? But we're also joined because Casey is busy today by Seth Macy Long Distance. So while Brian what are you going to say I was GONNA say I meant typical in that. Nbc recorded yesterday and news broke after when you listen to the regular episode of NBC. This week you'll also hear a say hilarious things like I can't believe there's no borderlands on switch that's crazy why would there not be borderlands on switch and then literally less than twenty four hours later borderlands was switched? So you'll get that We are digging into this L. Let's just jump in. We're going to be going down our roundup article which you can find. You can actually go to this random article on. I dot Com to see all of the announcements as well as a poll. That's asking you. What your favorite reveal was from the tender direct so you can check that out but let's start at the top With the Smash Bros announcement which was kind of like a little bit of a half announcement right. They announced that the first fighter in the second fighter pass is going to be an arms character arriving in June and revealed in June. But we don't know which character yet and they need more time for which I bet it's a punch man a better man as the character that us. I was thinking fist girl. What else what about the other one might be showing perils? My was. They're leaving it open because it's going to be one of those things like like the Kupa lanes where every skin is a different character. Probably GONNA be the same arms fighters or something but I mean everybody was clamoring for more arms news so it makes sense that this would come be nice. People like people like the day like the like really like aren't arm team. This is a character like A. I'm not really like it's not a character. I'm disappointed to see Smash Bros and it's what I kind of thought that they were going to do in the first fighter pass anyway. It's it's certainly leads me to believe that. They're they're really still thinking about making arms a franchise. You know what I mean like. They said that like well development is still happening on arms to while they didn't say arm sue but they did hint that they're working on a sequel to arms legs. Chocking thank you so that was kind of shocking to me because I feel that game kind of came and went so fast it sold well and I think it like stuck around for a little bit but this this does. This news feels few years too late. I'm with you guys on that like I think if they had announced this character Few months after the launch it would have made a little bit more sense but I was going to be sorry. I was the protein shakes. I assumed that are there. Anonymous character was going to be the best game. I was surprised when the same kind of seems like a no brainer to put it like in the first round but it seems very weird to put it here in this third round of characters so the good thing is like they're they're coinciding with the allowing players to play the entire game for free for a little while. Which is I think. A smart move. It's basically a free switch game that you can download immediately and I think you know a Free First Party. Switch game Temporarily air quotes. But I think that's pretty awesome. Even if I didn't super get into that game us Mr Smash Redman Right now but like I'm not like overly crazier excited about the idea of like arms character but I am excited about the prospect of what an arms character as a smash. Bros fighter would be like. I think that character could be really fun to play. Yeah like I think that that it would be a a a nice medium distance character. You know like a lot of like good good. Reach a lot of great recovery probably. Yeah I interested as a fighting cared. I'm interested in it as a fighting game. I just think it's a weird move in terms of like their overall oeuvre at this point but because I I kind of assumed that nintendo would would do arms and see the reception and then just like okay. Well we tried that. Once we're bacteria we had small technical issues there but we're back to talk now about Zena bed Conoco's definitive addition We got a release date for this. May Twenty ninth. They also just like showed off a bunch of the game. This was sort of the headliner. aside from polk Amman. I think it's thing they spent the most time on this. Yup I've I've said my piece about Zena Blade chronicles on this show. I'M GONNA JUST YOU. Y'All go ahead and talk about this game. I'm good who is played it because I missed it back in the day. I also missed it back in the day. I played it. Okay your first one Brian. Yeah Yeah are you like did. Did you like what you saw here in terms of re master and definitive edition? Whatever they want. I mean this is like while I probably won't dive into this. This is obviously gigantic news. For people who love this game This is a highly beloved game that will take hundreds of hours finish and putting that on switches. Never bad news Personally it's not something. I'm really intrigued about but every time I've sort of been like oh who's even excited about this. Millions of people are like us and so I will just say I am happy for all of you who are happy for this game even though it's not for me personally Good luck and Godspeed. I hope you enjoy your fun time with the video game coming this year but I will say I'm really am excited that we just have another mainline. Switch Game. Release date this year. Like that's exciting to me But beyond that. I'm excited because when I was asking about if I should start seeing a blade chronicles two million years ago. The thing from people as you should really play the first one I but it's also not worth going. It's like it's more trouble than it's worth to go back to it because it's kind of an aged game so seeing this as like looking pretty much just as good as chronicles to now makes me want to be like. Oh Yeah I I can actually play this. Which is which is really exciting. Yeah I think the graphically like the overhaul looks gorgeous. The character models look really really good. The environments look really good. I think that the one thing that I really liked about chronicles to the ten hours that I spent with it was like it's just insane to see that expansive sort of open world those kinds of areas on the switch. No game does it anywhere near that good except for maybe breath of the wild so. Brian said I think it's really cool for fans of Zeno Blade. I'm stoked that they're get a chance to free. Play this one of the most exciting announcements for a lot of people at least gen our calm according to our poll was Two K Games announced their K. Announced that a bunch of there are coming so we're getting the bioshock collection which is a shock. One two and infinite. We're getting borderlands legendary collection and we're getting X. come to the X. Come to collection but that's really just like it in it's steel see Vats THREE SERIES. That are fantastic. All coming to switch and like on also on May Twenty Ninth. So this is like really. That's really cool thing. That's once that's like huge support from two K ma. My only concern here is that I hope that the bioshock collection that they're putting out for switch has been retooled since it was released for xbox and ps four there was awesome right really serious issues with that collection in even now like my friend just replayed through Bioshock two and she had like a bunch of glitches in issues and stuff in in the bioshock collection. So I'm hoping that that it's been ironed out before or will be ironed out before it comes to the
Burning Up Those Stubborn Calories
"Hello and welcome to this week's edition of the Green Wisdom Health show. I'm Janet Lewis and I'm Dr Louis and we are going to educate you this. We gone how to burn up those stubborn calories that all of you are now trying to get rid of from these wonderful holiday season that we had and you might have. I've been trying to get rid of some before the wonderful holiday season we had but it was a great excuse to keep eating so We're going to tell you a few things that you can do. Naturally we're we're going to offer you some supplements recommendations about Some things you can take to help speed it up and burn it up and we're also going to answer some very important questions that you guys have been writing into us Dr Lewis. I'M WANNA put him on the spot because he doesn't really know what I'm going to ask him so we'll see how that turns out anybody's been married word you've been on the spot all those years. Anyway it's kind of fun so we're going to answer things like I follow all the rules but I still can't lose weight. I'm just getting old and my metabolism is slow. It's genetic there's nothing new about weight loss. How many of you have heard that one? I mean we've heard that on these last impounds just won't go away. I feel like I should give up and there are certain foods. I can't stop eating even though I suspect they're bad for me so we're going to help you figure out what to do to stop eating those and don't you have a weight loss pill you can give me. I can't tell you how many times people called our office asked. Do we have appeal. I to this day. Don't believe that we have discovered the magic pill. The doctor lous though I had a lady walk in one time she said. Can you help me lose weight. I said Yep being follow the rules. I said how much you need Lou. She said forty two pounds because she's going to class reunion. I said all right how long long you want me to. Or how long are you going to give me to help you with this. She says three weeks took Munaf out of my pocket opened up. The Blade says wish leg K.. Hey I've tried everything to lose weight. Maybe I need to accept myself as fat and give up my skinny clothes. Don't be doing body shaming that going on in lot now on TV. It's like will. You should not be making fun of people for being overweight but at the same time you should not accept that that is normal because we're healthy because as you're saying hey it's okay if you have diabetes heart attack stroke because you know we're we're just large so we're going to address that it's not your genetics go nutrition and diet strategies that work for others don't seem to apply to me so maybe there's a reason that happening will discuss. And then I lose five pounds and then I regained seven it so frustrating and I know women say that a lot so moon due to eh if any of those statements are resonating with you than hold onto your hats because we are going to tell you perhaps one of the most important secrets of all is at your hormones could be out of whack and there are things you can do about that. So doctor Lewis. I guessed the number one thing that would make you out of whack to gain. Weight is a estrogen imbalance. Well that could be. You've heard me say pesticides. Odds plastics and fire retardants. But there there are so many different things that can and mimic estrogen. There Call Zeno Estrin. ESTROGENS ARE ESTROGEN ESTROGEN MIMIC hers. And that's why us. Men have low testosterone generally and swan little girls develop breast and national cycle many years before they should because we have so many of does that are just prevalent In our society the plasticizers or fe lights And you know you really can't avoid it it's better to do do without as many as possible but You know use glasser. CERAM ACRE CAST IRON. You know when you can but Yeah these estrogen. Mimic IRS Whether you're a man or woman we do a very is trademarked. A Damn Diangelo methane which is the Sharks is end. All three carbon all goes to diangelo methane But that's what you get in Broccoli Cauliflower Brussel sprouts Kale but you know you can't eat eight sixty pounds of that a day and if you could your wife couldn't stand the gas so it's easier just to eat you know the type the dam and that helps take out their conjugate these bad estrogens and the other thing is it helps increase testosterone. It helps increase free and weakly bound testosterone. And I'm sorry Janet I was just talking about a man there I was thinking this was our magic weight loss pill because you know on on on female that damn actually makes a woman get her shape back to the way it was when she was younger. It's through the hips you. You know because that's where the bad estrogen balances stored it's through the Tummy area and hips. And where if you if you need a bra in inner back because you get those fouls where your bra strap goes and you know. I've had women say well I'm not losing weight on. It is like it's not really for White Law. She she usually lose five six pounds. Maybe ten But you're cleaning up your body. People are so adamant soaring trying to clean it. Maligning language tr- so adamant about Detox while he's got a detox every day so the dam is very very important. Man What it did did for me is it made my prostate very very healthy. Well on a woman whenever they tell you that that is the main reason that they can't lose weight. Eight in relation to win a man loses. Weight is because of estrogen dominance. I think it's a stress living with her husband but it could be. I could be wrong. Well we've been on birth earth control pills all the all the kind of things that make estrogen higher. You know eating the meat. That's full of antibiotics. All that stuff you know. They're shot up with all all kind of chemicals that create an estrogen balance. Now you know meet Gets a bad rap and Janice Janez ride about the The antibiotics antibiotics and the ESTROGENS. But don't think red meat's bad you and it's not causing global warming. If people think me causes global global warming they know absolutely nothing about carbon sequestration You don't buy into it but get the good meat nowhere. Your meat comes comes from and make sure it's raised properly well and you should be eating more vegetables as well because I know a lot of this Kito Diet and all that staff you do a whole lot of protein. You should be doing a whole lot of vegetables. Also because that helps absorb the fiber helps absorb some of those Excreted access estrogens on the true. I mean more vegetables but if there's spraying those chemicals on them they're just as bad if not worse I than the mate. So that's why I tell people even if you're not getting any more nutrient density you're not getting the chemicals or the same amount on a chemical so go organic grow your own if he can. That's why Jack Speer Co the survival podcast. He teaches you how to do that. But more vegetables absolutely absolutely better fat absolutely and more of it. I'm a big fan of Kito. That's the one and in all the studies that's the one where people lose twice as much weight as any other died and keep it off and we had a picture of Tony from up in Nebraska and he says thank you Dr Louis Raskin mayor. You ready to get whale. And he's given me a little bit of credit. I won't Tony. You look good hundred pounds lighter and I'm glad I could help but you've got to take credit. You did the work and you had the motivation. So God bless you. You're an inspiration to other people. Exactly he did the work. which is the big deal? No excuses Tony. You never had them. And that's why you got success. So our problem with burning up those stubborn calories number two do is excess n Selanne and which we check that on lab and most doctors. Don't would you talk a little bit about the lab for those of you that or new to listening to our podcast You know we had a lady in here yesterday. This YUP got a couple of panels a lab and we were like. Oh boy what. Two three hours hours for the doctor's office to send it to us and then we were disappointed is lying when you're talking about this excess estrogen and you're talking about insulin. Can you explain a little bit about what you do differently. And what you're running and what you're looking for and how you see that even if you're in a Even if your glucose is okay and you're a one C is okay okay you know. He wants season ninety. Two hundred and twenty day blood sugar average even if they're okay but the insulin gets excessive And the range depending dependent on the lab goes from about two to nineteen or two to twenty four and I tell people that is not normal. That's what's going on in America if insulin get somewhere around five six seven eight and higher it to start. Creating let's excess glucose so the body turns it into triglycerides Oculus rods and boo boos all sorts of different cholesterol markers. Then the track list Roger Create into the liver and the liver can't process it which probably can't because you've been doing too many carbs and sugars. Then you get your liver enzyme started going high you get the stones and your liver. They migrate down the Billy area. ATTRAC- go into the gallbladder and you get gallstones and then you get your gall bladder taken out. It's just a cascade of all kinds of things You don't WanNa go go there. But that's why we check and there are so many different things that can help with insulin
Areas to watch in 2020
"In this segment will turn to the areas to watch for twenty twenty here writers from Science Forecast Areas of policy and research likely to make the news this year? They've called the chaos and identified some of the top stories. I'm Joel Goldberg now. Now we have an gibbons contributing correspondent at Science for twenty twenty. She's calling attention to a new method of examining the lives of people. Who Live far? Aren't past say a million years ago. The technique focuses on ancient proteins remnants of prehistoric life which could fill in some some of the blanks leftover from DNA analysis of archaeological finds. I N hi- Joel. It sounds like we're talking about something like fossil. CSI only by that thinking when expect DNA to be the most valuable molecules rather than proteins. So why is it that proteins so important this kind of analysis being done on these million-year-old specimens so for fossil detective work. Were you looking back in time. DNA is the best I molecule but it is more fragile than proteins degrades more easily and the oldest ancient DNA. We have from early. Human fossils is about four four hundred forty thousand years and from an ancient polar bear about six hundred thousand founding conditions that were perfect cold. Glacial conditions in the Arctic doc or in a cave. So now what's really exciting is researchers or being able to get ancient proteins. That are much older from a wide range of the bones and teeth and other materials that can shed light on early human evolution and evolution of other animals so the first step is to search fossils of human remains what can scientists gleaned from the proteins in those remains so the first thing that they often want to do is determine whether a fragment kind of bone or a bit of truth is actually from an early human ancestor. They might have a fragment that they can identify just by looking at it and so what they can do is look at the makeup jakup. The building blocks of the proteins such as Collagen the different amino acids varies between modern humans neanderthals for example. So this method was already used used to identify neander tall bone from one site and then another kind of human from another place and differentiate them for modern human bones so it's great for classification nation. But the other things that people can do with ancient proteins is they can use them to determine the sex of a fossil they can also use them to date the fossils if you have say early human ancestor bones and aside along with animal bones you can look at the decay of the protein actual molecular makeup and that can tell you how old which fossils older than the other folds who can help you do relative dating at a site which is great and then also we're using proteins to learn about say a the types of milk people might have been drinking when you're looking at era early use of daring getting those diets of the ancient humans. You got it. And with the Neolithic Revolution the revolution to agriculture. The questions about whether the first milk that people drank in the step of Russia and other places was a camel. Milk was a goat milk. So you can begin to get it. Diet and the types of food and drink people are consuming and get a quality of life issues as well which is really interesting. So it's really about finding the way of life of those ancient humans I think ultimately. Yes I identifying who. You've got an archaeological site. But then what does it reveal you about who these people were or the animals animals that were there and scientists aren't merely looking at proteins for these ancient humans and the remains they're also looking at AH artifacts more recent artifacts such as ceramic pots parchment from manuscripts even beeswax. What can scientists learn especially in regard to humans humans by casting this wide net over archaeological specimens so with the books? You're learning often about who I was making them. You can get the sex of the person if with the proteins who's making the books and working on the manuscript so you can learn about what kind of animals were used to make the parchment. You can also learn about the kinds of the economy kind of animals. They were trying to. They had abundant supplies of with the beeswax tax. It would tell you about the sources for the wax. What bee colonies? How far away do they go to get their wax and to make it so you start to get information about the lifestyles lifestyles of ancient people and you can do that for any any time? Period that the protein survived from okay. And thank you so much for coming on thank you and givens is a contributing correspondent at science. Now we have Kelly servic staff writer at science. Her area to watch for twenty twenty is a somewhat somewhat eerie subject the transplantation of pig organs into humans these cross species transplants known as Zeno transplants are already Being performed on non human primates and may soon be primed for human trials. I Kelly Hi. Why is it that scientists are hoping to put pig organs into people so really simply? We don't have enough organs There are more than one hundred thousand people in the US alone. Who need some kind of organ transplant and are waiting waiting for a suitable organ So researchers have been thinking for a while about possibly using pig organs which are pretty similar size and structure If we could raise pigs to provide hearts or kidneys or pancreases or maybe livers That could could make up the shortage. So what's keeping these types of transplants aliens from being implemented. The big hurdle has always been that our bodies thankfully no how to recognize foreign material And our immune in system is designed to attack anything that it sees as an invader and so pick cells and tissues are making molecules that human cells don't so unless scientists can sort of convinced the human body that a pig organ is not an invader that organised probably not going to integrate harmoniously into into into its new host. And maybe that's not so unexpected that the human body is rejecting some aspects of these pig organs so immune rejection rejection is even a problem for human organs transplanted into a different human right but the but the problem gets a lot more extreme when you have a different species and speaking of different species. ABC's there are these non human primates who are involved. Can you talk more about that. Yes Oh the testing in in monkeys is sort of a stepping stone to to figure out about whether a pig organ can survive in primate and Can Be Safe So that's sort of a requirement for these research groups before they we're GONNA have permission to test these things humans. Okay so the non human primates step is a very important part of where this research is going. What developments can we expect to see in the next year round the issue? I think there's a lot of excitement in this field right now. and a lot of momentum Partially because because of of crisper genome editing. That's making it possible to Make really precise insertions into the pig genome And to make a whole lot of changes changes at once so what we're seeing now is several companies sort of designing their ideal engineered pig putting a whole bunch of genetic changes into into pigs and There are a couple of US companies that already have those pigs sort of thriving and so. Yeah what we're going to see in the coming year or so I think is more Non Human primate testing as groups are preparing to get permission for human trials. What are some of those groups and countries or speaking about so a couple of the front front runners? There's a Virginia based company called River core. That's making pigs that I have. I believe nine modified genes that are sort of designed to provoke less of an immune reaction even in human body and there's a company called E. Genesis which was founded by Harvard geneticists. That is collaborating with a company in China to produce Some of the most extensively edited pigs. That have ever been created for the purpose of transplant. What type of testing do you think will see and people I so? The first trials trials are not likely to be like whole hearts or whole kidneys. They're more likely to be for example. Cornea transplants from pig to treat blindness or pancreatic excels for diabetes. So I think researchers are sort of thinking about ramping their way up in complexity from there Kelly. Thanks so much for coming on. Thanks for having me. Now we have Jeff Murderer's senior correspondent. Science

Will Soda Really Ruin My Teeth?
"Abramson grainstuff. It's me Christian Sagar. So there's this urban myth that soda can dissolve a tooth overnight. The Internet has thoroughly busted this. But just because has it's proven that hanging onto a mouthful of Cola for upwards of twelve hours won't hollow out your jaw that doesn't mean you should try it. Soft drinks can indeed damage your pearly early whites. But how and how much well. Let's talk teeth. Your teeth have four basic layers. The route the pope the Denton protecting the pulp. And the Enamel. Tooth Enamel is the hardest tissue. The human body produces it's made up of crystal fibers packed together into a smooth mineral enroll casing or as we call it a crown but unlike your bones enamel is not a living tissue because it's not alive that also means it can't repair parrot self that means it takes damage from daily wear and tear including what we eat and what we drink. There are two types of trouble drinks can cause all over erosion due to the acids they contain and spot decay caused by the bacteria that grow on your teeth. Both come down to a PH imbalance on a scale from zero to Zeno Morph. The human mouth has a pretty neutral ph level. Something around six point eight. The Ph scale itself runs from zero to fourteen with zero being the most acidic fourteen being the most base or alkaline and seven being neutral like pure water some of the bacteria in your mouth are sugar hungry so when you consume sweet stuff like soda. They throw the bacterial equivalent of a House party. They'll link
Virtual Game 'Neopets' Turns 20
"Neo pets were virtual pets and in in fact perhaps the most popular virtual pets ever to have existed on the Internet. So obviously we talked about Tom. Gotschi in a previous episode. But that's a little bit different right because that's like a little virtual pet inside of a physical thing. These yaps only live on the Internet. Okay hold on a second so when you originally this it was sort of referring to earlier when you originally said that you were going to do neo pets I said Oh. It's those ones where it's a stuffed animal and you can connect to the Internet and they live on the Internet to But no no. You're very well weren't very wrong but you wear wrong. Those are web kipnes. That's web kipnes. Okay probably more fun to be honest. Just having on a computer seems like a downgrade. Oh Oh Russ you are so wrong. Okay we'll get into it so neo. Pets have been around for almost twenty years now. Yeah at one point. It was the most popular one one of the most popular websites on the Internet. One of the most visited huge advertising opportunity but That and several other things actually contributed needed to. It's sad downfall until we got to it now where it's a sort of twinkle in Miss Stall GIC millennials is but we'll go back to one thousand nine hundred nine when it began so neo pets started in the UK by a couple that was in college. Actually they were both college age Adam Powell and Donna Williams so adams like kind of studying marketing and Donna was into art and Adam when and made his own online online at agency so this was toward the end of college So throughout call to dating and then toward the end Adam went and made his own ad agency which is pretty smart but the thing is like they were making all these banner. Ads wasn't really doing a ton. A ton of numbers for him. So Adam and his girl Donna. They as everyone does does loved animals. They loved pets because who doesn't so they had a ton of pets. They're kicking around. They didn't have a ton of money but they had a ton of pets for super into into animals and one day Adam was like Yo Donna. I'm on the computer all day. Work in the terrible job making ads. Why don't I just make pets on the computer? Everyone loves pets. Wait what yeah. That's the leap that he made like. I feel like we're missing a few steps okay. Here's here's my guests because he's making ads right Did he maybe invent the punch. The monkey add nope if he loves animals. Why would he make the punch? The monkey add just saying like maybe that was the progenitor neo. Pets was like well. He's got this monkey already. I don't need to punch. Maybe I could feed them a banana. I mean it's very much like key worked in AD agency and had coding shooting experience. Like that was kind of where he came from a programmer he like obviously understood marketing to an extent but was more of like a coder programmer. Guy Guy also nine hundred ninety nine so this is this is after the rise and fall of Tamagotchi like was that at all and inspiration for him. Yeah there has been no mention of Tamagotchi in my my reading but okay yeah I mean it really just kind of boils down to Yo. Let's figure out a way to make money money. Let's make pets online. which is a weird moneymaking scheme but I guess again like maybe he didn't think of it but me thinking about it like Tamagotchi but without having to carry a stupid egg around pretty good? Yeah I mean it makes perfect sense to me again because everyone loves pets. So Adam and Donna Collab- d- But the thing is so adam like coded the website the actual site itself and then Donna was in charge of the graphic design because she's artists. The thing is in two thousand five Adam told wired. There's a really big piece on the pets which we will which I got a lot of Info from so we'll we'll come back to it but he said the Donna literally did not know how to draw which sort of lake issue when it's just the two of you and you hire her on your artist But maybe he came to learn this through working with her Because essentially Donna was tasked with making the pet cells which is kind of key here right like. That's the how the very first neo pets. Were not very cute. They were Kinda weird. Look in some of them. Were literally just like sprite spaced off actual things. There was this one that was like literally a picture like Ajay peg of this British comedian. And that was one of the pets. Selena peg of a human being and you and what did you do with this comedian So I mean the point was still like you could hang out with them them. Raise them feed them play. Was it like like who was it. Like a known comedian. No one I've ever heard of some kind of like niche. It was a very British enterprise so sort of like a British like comedian. Who'd never really wasn't like filler? Like a temp piece of art. Well when it went up on the site yeah it literally was one of the one of the first neo pets. He actually went on to inspire one of the actual Lake Neo pets. So people recognized because we thought he was very funny so anyway. Yeah the first neo pets for Kinda weird looking Adam and Donna Donna. Just kinda seemed like they were goofing around even though they tend to stake their livelihood on this little bit. Because as far as I can recall at this point atom basically was committed to doing the neo pets thing full-time because it turns out. They started like dumping the link on all these virtual pet sort of like link groups newsgroups back in the day and a lot of people were really into it. There was a huge virtual pet community already and I feel like okay. Okay so like thinking back There was like pets with Z.. In Yeah and feel and like I guess the Sims was before. I don't remember when this came out but like now I think that's out there. Is there like troll creature things creatures. Yeah features yeah creatures right. Yeah like Weird Alien Things Ya ya like a it was a thing. It was like a little period of time for gaming. Yeah and I mean like as we said Tamagotchi did do well for a while. They're so like clearly is interest in folk Ammann to write like this was right after Pok mon on people like cute animals you guys. I don't WanNa keep beating this into your heads. People like pets so neo pets even in this very primitive state did super well like literally they were like. Okay Yo. This is our job. Now we're just GONNA keep making this neo. Pets thing that people inexplicably are very into despite like are very low quality and price. Sorry I wanna go back really quick you said that they would just drop links in forums to to get people to figure out about it. Yeah like there. Are these virtual pet sort of like communities. You know you guys know better than me. There's like those sort of like newsletter a group Shannon's newsgroups so and then people would just click the links and be i. I WANNA take a peek at chew maintenance our work yeah yes they would all make pokemon punts. Yeah okay okay. Yes until they got banned by me me so anyway yes so neo. Pets was doing pretty well and it was just kind of not not super complicated quite yet uh-huh but then in two thousand the sky named Doug doering who owned the the during company. Which is this market research firm heard of neo pets which this was like killing it? Like you CH- They had some additional things they had like some basic games at this point. They had people. Even I don't even understand. What are people doing with the pets? Okay so essentially what neo. Pets is or was at that time and then we'll go into like what it ended up. Having more of his you have you can have up to four pets. There was like a limited selection of them. And did you pay for the pets for it was totally free free to play and you could. Yeah so you had like a limit of four and you'd go into like the create a pet center and you can choose which of the pets he wanted. You can choose. What color was you could name Eh choose its personality and then you would have to take care of it? Basically I mean. It's kind of like Tom. mcgauchie literally just like feed it or and like make sure it's Ian or whatever and you play games pretty I wouldn't like level up and grow not really so the other thing is you're trying they get neo points which will come back way. You're going you guys. which is the virtual currency? And you use Zack. To like buy additional items you can go take your neo pets too like but grooming parlour. Go to the vending machine by different kinds of food. The whole thing is like getting money to take care of your pet. It's essentially yes reality basically but yes so. That's sort of the premise S.. which was it had like a very obviously loop right? So you're like going on neo pets to take care of your new pet which requires you to make money and then you spend all your money on food. Whatever so a lot of people were spending hours and hours and hours within the first few months as little promotion as they were doing they had ten thousand users continues to grow? Oh and so yeah in two thousand this American Dude who was like in Glendale California. I believe was heard about neo pets and he was like dude. This is a really good idea. There's legit money ops. Here Ma Dude so doug doering came to Adam them in. Donna was like yeah I can help you guys. I run a market research firm and my my guru. Here's the thing. E was a huge huge scientologist. So he would reference l Ron Hubbard and dianetics as much as possible L. H. L. R. H.. So he with the power of l Ron behind him the power of Zeno or whatever He was the bad guy needs to the back. I don't I could not finish battlefield earth. I'm sorry but anyways with the power of dianetics guiding him he signed on a C. has CEO of Neo Jio Patsy bought neo pets INC him. Co and used his market research team which was already at the door and company and helps to seriously grow neo pets into this huge money making company And Yeah another side about the scientology thing is literally. There are some employees in two thousand five after they left the company when they went on record saying yeah. We were super uncomfortable with how often he was referencing. Rinsing Scientology in some employees said they saw like some actual like celebrity scientologists occasionally get towards the office. Oh Yeah Yeah. 'cause like especially when new was tight I guess like I don't know Tom Cruise. Maybe Little Surrey Neo Pets Travolta checking out. Oh Yeah
"zeno" Discussed on The Daily Meditation Podcast
"This is episode one thousand eight hundred and eighty six welcome to the daily meditation podcast. I'm mary medically and i welcome you to a brand new series this week where the focus is. I'll about mental balance this in thai year month. We are exploring mental focus and and this week you'll be exploring mental balance with the ancient stoic six of greece. I shared with you a few years ago. A series where i focused on the stoic of italy such as marcus aurelius and we win through his book of meditations while i thought i'd start with where stoicism began and that happens to be where i am spending my vacation this year and that is in greece we will be exploring green the early greek stoic especially the works of zeno who is considered to be the founder founder of stoicism. Now there are many great philosophers who hailed from athens notably early plato and socrates and aristotle and these great philosophers including zeno would share their teachings on stoesz which are similar.
"zeno" Discussed on MZNOW with Michael Zavala
"Kim Zeno like a fun Facebook at Facebook dot com forward slash MC. Now. News from them. And you're listening to Michael's. This is MC now. Hey, Matt, how're you doing? Let me turn you up. So we can hear you. Sorry. So let me give you a little back story on Matt. So Matt decided, I don't know how this started, but he decided he was going to Chucky cheese convention, and this is now going.
Apple, Jack Stewart And Steve Koenig discussed on Morning Edition
"For the first time in four years, apple has announced hardware updates to its ipod touch devices. These aren't the ipods of old after just music, carrying machines. The ipod touch is pretty much an iphone without the cellular connection. So why marketplace's Jack Stewart explains?

"zeno" Discussed on KTOK
"Welcome from lovely Lenore, Idaho. Where is Lenore? Okay. Here. We go. It's east of lewiston west of Zeno. Understand. Okay. I'm down in the cascade there right now. The rest is classified information. That's right. The reason I'm here is because I don't want people to find me by. Golly, exactly. Actually on the trail. That's highway twelve. Oh, cool. Okay. So what's up? I was telling the shell correct? Yes. Michelle. The call taker I thought up a new acronym for a r k. Okay. Anarchist retailer. Wherever work. I always I always liked America's rifle. That's good. I called a couple of my shirt and buddies up they chocolate pretty good. And so did Mitchell. Yup. I think that's a good one. I understand. You also have range report for us. Yes. I do kinda related one. But I bought one of those Smith and Wesson SD nine vs. That was early summer of seventeen shot. It really liked it. I bought another one. Two weeks later that's kind of their that's their price point pistol. And people look at it and go. Yeah. You know, it's a lot less expensive. And I look at it and go. Yeah. But have you shot it because I will tell you there. I don't know what they did. But there's something about that. Pistol. When you pick it up at feels good, even before, you shoot, it don't you think not only that? But that's the first striker fired. I ever bought in centers fire. I put him on the block at twenty one feet. Yeah. It just works. It's inexpensive. It just works. It feels good in your hands. Why not? So cool. I appreciate that. Thanks for your call. I have actually our own the LA range report friend of ours here because they listen to the radio show. They kept hearing me talking about the Smith and Wesson shield easy. The three eighty they went out and bought one shot at yesterday. I said, well, what did you think? Said you're right. It's just there's no recourse, it just works, of course, slides easy to work now to be fair. They also have a nine millimeter Shiels and looking at getting forty five and something else. But they were intrigued by the three eighty and he shot and said, yeah, it's like a no recoil self-defense got. And I would think it'd be absolutely fine for two legged predators with the right ammo good that we have today in three eighty s just something. You can't believe how good it is. I know you hear me say that let me put it in real numbers when you shoot modern three eighty MO into ballistic gelatin, you will get penetration. That is within an inch is deep generally speaking as nine millimeter. Well, what else do you want? It's good enough. Sometimes good enough is just fine. If you want something that's lighter weight that has less recoil that you could shoot a bunch. Now, the flip side of that. And I would make your argument that. We have small nines now. Louis. Oh inexpensive. Practice animal that is that you can go out and practice a whole bunch. So as much as I like three eighty s and they have certain applications, especially when you get down small like Elsie P. In most other sizes. I'm kinda favoring the nine just because you can buy so much ammo for so expensively. Let's see Herman's with us out of Mansfield Louisiana to Hello. Herman welcome to Gun Talk. Don, how're you doing? I'm trying to get somebody to talk me out of trading. My nine thirty eight. Boy, three sixty five or at least trying to talk me out of been an extra money. Well, nine thirty eight is you already have nine thirty eight right. Yes. Right. And I love I love the moon festival. Yeah. Sweet sweetheart little pistol. And what it is is a miniature nine hundred eleven I mean, fair enough. Yes, sir. Okay. The P three sixty five is kind of the same size fish. What are going to get his ten plus one carrying capacity with twelve Brown magazine. Also, you can get that. You're to get night that come with it. It's a very suitable pistol. But the nine thirty eight is such a sweetheart it's kind of hard to make an argument that you should go to the three sixty five over that. Unless you just look at it and go, you know, I really seriously do want more rounds carry gun that would be kind of the overriding concern, it'd be getting more apple. So what's leading you to look at that? Well, they just just been reading up on it about the, you know, the striker fired. Versus safety. Hammerton don't bother me. It really does. I can't get done in seven or eight rounds. It's not going to get done. Well, maybe the problem with that is that what that tells me is that you already have in your mind, how this is going to go, and you don't know how it's gonna go. You may d- twenty rounds to finish the fight. It may be one of those days when nothing you do works or there's more than one of them. It's yeah. I know what you're saying that people say, well, the average gunfight is Xs two shots at three shots at whatever. It is. Except that your fight may not be the average one. I would really seriously hates run out of ammo in the middle of a gunfight. Okay. So, you know, LeBron?.
