US speeds up Abrams tank delivery to Ukraine war zone
"The U.S. is speeding up its delivery of Abrams tanks to Ukraine. The original plan was to send newer versions of the Abrams, which could have taken a year or two to build and ship officials tell the AP The Pentagon will instead send a refurbished older model already in army stocks. They'll be easier for Ukrainian troops to learn to use and maintain, and could arrive in the war zone much sooner with the goal being 8 to ten months. Ukrainian leaders had been pushing for the Abrams, a battlefield workhorse for more than three decades. The Biden administration insisted for months the tanks were too complicated to maintain and repair, but then announced in January, it would send them. Sagar Meghani, Washington.

"The bruins continued to take aim in a pair of NHL records with a 7 zero pounding of the sabers. Jeremy swab and picked up his second straight shutout, stopping 27 shots in the bruins third straight win. It wouldn't be possible without the guys taking initiative in the defensive zone. And blocking big shots all the way to the end. You know, it's special to see with a group like this. David pasternak tied a career high with his 48th goal for the bruins who scored on three of their first 7 shots. Patrice bergeron scored just 15 seconds in and had to assist. Jake had a goal and three assists in the route. I'm Dave ferry.

John Lott Jr. Tells Us About Biden's New Universal Background Checks
"Talk Second Amendment. It is Friday. And we need an update on what the Biden administration is trying to do to take away the civil right that protects all the others and we are going to connect with the man who knows. He literally wrote the book on firearms, control the attempts to the nude you of your rights, more guns, less crime, and so many others, Doctor John lott, welcome back to America first. No, it's great to talk to you again, sub. Thanks for having me on. So a few days ago, I asked for your assistance. You very graciously via text, helped explain to me what on earth it is that Biden administration is trying to do. So will you talk to us about the so called universal background checks and the latest skullduggery coming out of the Democrats? Yeah, I have to say one of the biggest ironies is Biden goes to California to go and advocate for all sorts of new gun control laws. California already has all those laws and yet the reason why he's going there is because they've been having a spate of mass public shootings. In fact, if you look over the years, what you find is that since California's head, these laws, they've had many more higher per CAPiTA rate of mass public shootings than the rest of the country. So it's not really obvious to me why somehow we want to go and emulate what's going on in California and such, I would go and argue that there are types of gun control laws, the restrictions that they have have actually been responsible for these attacks and all the gun free zones that they've created there, the fact that in Los Angeles County where he was at last year they had only one concealed carry permit for every 5000 600 adults

"Well let me know my father was born and raised in the Philippines in Manila and he was born just before the Second World War And his father was Scottish his mother was Spanish Filipino And the Japanese invaded when he was 8 years old And for four years he was in a Japanese prison camp His family were killed And he eventually was released and lived for a couple of years in the bombed out streets of Manila And at the end when general McCarthy came back in to free the Philippines my father was living in the streets with his three younger siblings who were as young as ages of 6 And he knew that the Japanese were killing everyone as they pulled back and that the only way to survive was to try as someone told him to find the American lines get to the GI who were coming in and he did that He took a group of kids and he ran through the bombed out streets and I first shot a little boy next to him until finally they reached the point in the city where the Americans were at the other end of the street and they were shouting at him to keep running to us run to us and he made it down that road and he always told the story to me about being picked up into the arms of a GI from the Buckeye division Ohio National Guard and he was pulled behind the tank and he was rescued And he was rescued that day And from there he made his way to the U.S. himself And he went to college He signed up and served for the U.S. Army in Korea and he was saved around the world by American GIs when he was in trouble and he became the first and proudest American ever And I feel the same way and about 77 years later I was around the world and Americans stuck in a war zone and I made it to Poland and there was the U.S. Military who opened their arms and got me into a Black Hawk and saved me too And so I talk about it in the book There is this incredible similarity We come from a family of proud Americans that has been saved around the world by an incredible forces And so that's something I feel incredibly strongly about And
Is Credit Suisse the Next Banking Domino?
"Right Friends, today we are talking about the same thing that everyone in traditional markets is talking about, which is Credit Suisse. Bloomberg's headline Blair's Credit Suisse and fight to win back confidence as shares plunge. And that headline has recently been updated to the even scarier Credit Suisse ignites global market route as banking fears return. So what's going on is Credit Suisse the next domino is it a big nothing burger? Is it something totally different, but it doesn't matter that it's totally different because all people here is bank failure and they get scared, let's dive in. So Credit Suisse has been looking shaky for a while. It's in the midst of a larger restructuring process by which its investment banking division will be spun out and the bank will focus just on its wealth management division. This is actually its second big strategic pivot in the last two years and obviously in the world of banking, that sort of bobbing and weaving isn't necessarily something investors get too excited about. To say nothing of course of depositors. Now right now, the specter of Silicon Valley bank is hanging not only over Credit Suisse, but the whole banking sector. This is despite the fact that Credit Suisse's leadership says there's no comparison, and that the bank trying to get back to profitability after changing its strategy has nothing to do with the extreme liquidity issues of smaller U.S. banks. However, this morning markets were further roiled when the chairman of the Saudi national bank, which is Credit Suisse's biggest shareholder, said that they would not be investing any more money into the beleaguered bank. The chairman of the Saudi national bank said that the biggest reason is just regulatory and statutory reasons that prevent them from boosting their share beyond the just under 10% they own now. Now as prosaic that might be, it obviously still wasn't good news. CSS shares were down as much as 29% hitting a new all time low. They're one year default swaps are also in a distress zone currently sitting around 18 X, the one year CDS for UBS, and 9 X for Deutsche Bank. Now, all in all, there are two big and quite different interpretations of what's going on. Investor in China perma bear, Kyle bass writes the recent collapse of SVB, signature bank, and silvergate bank was a warmup of larger things to come outside of U.S. borders. Credit Suisse's 5 year insurance against default has gone parabolic this morning, given their capital structure they now have three weeks or less to be sold.

Kendrick Perkins Says Racial Bias Plays Role in NBA MVP Voting
"Kendrick Perkins. What's this guy's deal? I'm not familiar with him terribly much. He was a subpar NBA player and he's above average broadcaster, but he does, this is not abnormal for him to do. And he is not white. That is correct. All right, so take a listen, cut forward to this guy's very upset because a white guy may be in the running here. Got 14. JJ, I need to know. Is the uchu Wally or is it one mic? I need to know when it comes down to the criteria moving the gold post for the MVPs because I understand you and the analytics. I understand you are a story you know the game of basketball, but I went and did a little research myself and since 1990 has only been three MVPs. That wasn't top ten in scoring that one letter ward. The whisky, Steve Nash, and yogurts. Now with all, what do they have in common? I let it sit there and marinate. I'm just trying to see, you know what I'm saying? When I walk into the club, do I need my J zone or is it a dress code? Do I need to put another, you know, a church shoes or some red bottoms or I need a note. Is it uchu Wally or is it one might? Like, what's the criteria when moving the gold post for certain players to win the MVP? I need to know. Because it seemed about the gold post move every single time where we want to push it out there, this particular pill that we want to win every piece 'cause we all know in 2006 when Kobe was averaging 31 when the Lakers were the 7 seed and the roster that he had compared to Steve Nash and Steve Nash won his second consecutive MVP in 2006, was he really supposed to win that? Was he really supposed to outdo COVID that year? I'm just trying to figure it out, bro, I'm trying to get on understanding what's the criteria why the goal posts move for certain players is the utility or is it one might carry on? So this is

On this week's AP Religion Roundup, a sacred, sinking town in India faces a grim future.
"Hello. For months, residents in joshima, a holy town burrowed high in India's Himalayan mountains, have seen their homes slowly sink. Local officials say various agencies are conducting surveys to determine what caused the damage. But other authorities have ignored expert warnings. Moving forward with costly projects in the region. Now, deep cracks have emerged in over 860 homes. Subsiding earth caused roads to split with crevices and multi storied hotels to slump to one side. Authorities declared it a disaster zone and came in on bulldozers, raising whole parts of a town that had become lopsided. A pretty steady local temple says it's been a religious capital of Hinduism for more than 2000 years. So it must be protected. The Lakshmi nari and temple is in one of the only parts of the village still standing. Accord last year directed authorities to stop dumping waste near the historic temple, which was once the last rest stop for devotees on a religious pilgrimage. I'm Walter ratliff

Biden Blasted for Visiting Ukraine Instead of East Palestine, Ohio
"Welcome back to America first. Thanks very much to Benjamin. Now somebody has written various tomes on various American presidents from an apolitical perspective. Could you just react to the idea of an American president going to another nation in a war zone albeit like Kyiv and Ukraine at a time when politics is so divisive at home and people are suffering in the east Palestine, Ohio. What are the presidential optics of this like? I have to say, and you and your listeners would know, I tended to be highly critical of this president, but I think he was right to go. And I commend him for going. I think it is hyperbole to compare it to the most publicized visits of president Kennedy and president Reagan to western Berlin. And they were outstanding speakers and mister Biden is not. But I think I would defend him on the charge of going there when there are bad things in the United States and I think it's a scandal that he has not gone to east Palestine, Ohio. But you can do both, you know. But on president's day on premises, is there something a little bit piquant about him going on president's day? I thought that was maybe I'm being naive, but I thought that was more or less of an accent. I mean, it just a scheduling thing. The fact that he went on president's day, I wouldn't read a great deal into that. I mean, it's as good a day as any other to go. And there's no reason that a president can't be out of the country on that day. And presidents do travel and part of their mandate is to uphold the American position in the world and defend American national interests in the world. And
Coinbase Launches 'Base' Layer 2 Chain
"All right guys, well, yesterday, coinbase got the crypto industry quite a flutter when it tweeted a cryptic video of a blue dot and the date two 23 23, which is, of course, today. Speculation was rampant at first, but started to consolidate pretty quickly when around half an hour after that initial tweet, the Twitter account for optimism, which is an Ethereum layer to chain, tweeted an image of two wing suitors. One had a red dot backpack, which is optimism symbol, while the other the one who was diving off the cliff had the same blue dot that coinbase had just shared. And so the speculation started to hone in on the idea that coinbase was launching something in conjunction with optimism. Still within that, there was a pretty broad band of expectations. Giga bear, for example, represented the prepare to be underwhelmed perspective. They tweeted, watched the coinbase thing be optimism USD C support, or in other words something fairly incremental. Now, on the far other end of the spectrum, was the extreme expectation of actually launching a chain and a token. Which would of course fly in the absolute face of the SEC. Moon overlord tweeted, if coinbase actually drops a token, it is about to pop off. This is how bull markets start to be honest. At first, it's the same old people on Twitter playing circus, but enough positive things happen or tokens go nuts, and suddenly people love crypto again. What if coinbase drops a token of their own token coin? Brian said literally last week, around and find out. The NT SPF, the final boss, the omega Chad? Will they do it? Investor Adam Cochran was also excited. He wrote, if there ends up being a coinbase token that AirDrops to users that saves the market, we're pulling a portion of it and creating a giant bronze statue of Armstrong with an extra shiny bald head and sending it to their office. Them is the rules. Then of course, there was the sort of in between view, represented by gamete chain who wrote, my speculation, they're making a KYC zone on optimism. Basically a blockchain you can only enter if you have a coinbase account, and they are handling access via a chain link CCP node. Institutions would love this, a KYC DeFi portal. Can still use optimism open and free like usual, but if you want to get in the coinbase layer, you got to go through their KYC, CC IP bridge, and then you get access to big institutional liquidity pools. Could be the on ramp trad fi has been craving. So what did we get? Well, ultimately it was closer to this middle perspective than anything else. On Thursday morning, coinbase announced base. It's a layer two network that is indeed built on top of optimism's OP stack. Coinbase will be joining optimism as a core developer on the open-source stack and will even be contributing 20% of sequencer revenue, which is the money they make for ordering and executing transactions, and then submitting them to the layer one chain to fund public goods.

Doug Welcomes Back Former NFL Coach Chan Gailey
"Gailey, coach extraordinary glad to have him with a stock in the year and also what's going ahead in this time of year. So what are college coaches doing right now? Right now they are organizing for their off season program, spring practice, they are evaluating last year's film. What they did good, what they did bad. And this is going to be good for pros and college in many respects. But there are evaluating what they did good, what they give and what they need to improve upon. The difference and I might even talk about the differences between college and profile of sitting here because pros have got a decent idea who's going to be back next year. Right. Some of the colleges, they're still recruiting their kids, you know, they don't know who's going to be back next year. That's the challenge that they have. And transfer portal made that even worse. Oh, it's ten times worse. At least, you know, 5 years ago, you knew you had going into spring practice to practice. You knew who you had. Because a guy, to be eligible, he would have had to have already transferred and gone somewhere else and it just wasn't an open door policy at any point in time. And so. It's much more difficult on the college guy right now as far as evaluate what they did last year is about the same. Right. Okay. How good were we in red zone? Had a good war worry two minute offense. How good were we? Kick off return. All that. And but the personnel, who you have, the pro guy has a great idea about what he has and the college guy does it.

Stuart Varney: Biden Visiting Ukraine Is a 'Game Changer'
"Listen, check out Fox business host Stuart varney yesterday from Fox News. This could be a game changer. President Biden makes a surprise visit to Ukraine. It was a very well kept secret. He took a train from the Polish border to Kyiv and even as air raid sirens were sounding, he was meeting with president zelensky, and then walking the streets in a war zone. Highly symbolic, the president said he wants to leave no doubt about America's support. For as long as it takes, those are his words. The timing here is crucial. The president suddenly pops up. He suddenly appears in a foreign capital that is under attack. He is sticking it to Putin one year after Russia invaded. He stays sticking it to Putin he's really really, really tough.

Joe Biden Makes a Surprise Visit to Ukraine
"Your president is visiting his prized constituents in Ukraine. Now I have to say many of you are fired up and you should be, why is he not visiting Ohio? Why is he not focusing on issues here domestically? And that is the right sentiment. However, the fact that we spent a $100 billion in Ukraine were acting as if Ukraine is more like America than our own country. Is it the 51st state? That's a simple question, but hey, I actually don't think it's a waste of time if you're doing the right thing when you go to visit Ukraine and Biden is doing the opposite of the right thing. Yes, he should be visiting some of the catastrophes and disasters happening in our homeland first, but we've talked about what is neoliberalism. Neoliberalism is caring more about the needs wants and concerns of foreigners than that of your own citizens. Tyrants dictators and despots have a fetish for the needs wants and concerns of something that is foreign and they really are disinterested in your life. In the life of an American. So Biden is in the middle of the Ukrainian war zone. And yes, I totally agree. He should be an east Palestinian. He should be mobilizing fema. He should be concerned about our own country, but visiting Ukraine. I don't think is necessarily a waste of time. If you are using the bully pulpit, if you are using American strength, if you are using the power of the presidency to broker peace, if you are saying, hey, let's end this war. Now, I believe Joe Biden does have deep seated contempt for large parts of America. I think he really does, I think he hates Midwest Trump America. But all that aside, if you are going to visit Ukraine, if you're going to visit visit Eastern Europe, in the middle of this proxy war that is about to hit a whole, it's about to enter a whole new chapter in about a week and a half. It seems as if Putin is going to put his foot on the accelerator and what are we doing? What is our government doing? Well, Joe Biden is doing the exact opposite and it's going to put America at risk. It's going to put more of our money at risk. And the most immediate and sad fact is that tens of thousands of people are going to unnecessarily die in

Richard Engel Omits President Trump's Visit to Afghanistan
"Soon as the question was thrown to this guy, I thought, ain't no way Richard Engel is going to give any credit whatsoever to Donald Trump as you're about to hear. I was right. This trip is aimed at boosting the confidence of the Ukrainian people, giving support to the Ukrainian government, but it is also clearly a message to Vladimir Putin. If Vladimir Putin had his way, he would have been in Kyiv today. He would have been celebrating his victory, taking over this country, incorporating it into Russia. Instead, Ukraine still stands, keep is still free. It is still controlled by the government, and we had President Biden there saying that the United States will continue to support Ukraine's democratic government for as long as it takes. Multiple messages today. Can you put this in perspective? How different is Biden's visit than other presidential trips to war zones? Very different. I've seen quite a few of these over the years, president Bush going to arrest. He goes right to president Bush visits Iraq. Now, why would you go to president Bush go back a few cycles? Instead of mentioning right off the bat, 45, the immediate predecessor to grandpa Joe because that's how they are. They really want to erase Donald Trump's presidency. And heaven forbid he comes back, right? As far as they're concerned, yeah, I mean, he just visited troops in Afghanistan. Remember, Thanksgiving in 2019. That would be the example you'd give. No, no, no, no. Richard Engel, a president Bush comes to mind. Yes, yes, yes. What about FDR? Calvin Coolidge made some trips. How about that?

The Doctor's Farmacy with Mark Hyman, M.D.
"zones" Discussed on The Doctor's Farmacy with Mark Hyman, M.D.
"We have a policy bundle that favors healthy food over junk food and junk food marketing, favors the pedestrian over the motorist, so we help 5 year period help the city council pick politically feasible and effective policies that are going to work in that community. And that really has a huge impact. Then we have a blue zone certification program for schools, restaurants, grocery stores, workplaces, and churches, and over a 5 year period. We can usually get 50% of all those places certified, which means that they've changed their policies and designs to favor unconsciously healthier choices when it comes to food and movement. And then a third squad with any of these teams works gets 15% of the adult population to become blue zones ambassadors and optimize their homes and their social circles. So their mindlessly making better choices. And our biggest city, Fort Worth, Texas, over 5 years. We saw a 3% drop in the obesity rate, which may not sound dramatic, but the rest of Texas got heavier and the city itself figures that it saved them about a quarter of a $1 billion a year in healthcare costs and will continue to do so for every year in the foreseeable future because we made a lot of change. Yeah, quarter $1 billion is not jump change. So that's huge. I mean, yeah, no, this is something should be done in every city town state in America. It's so clear to me that we have to kind of reimagine our communities and hard stuff. You're like, oh, we're going to get rid of all the crap at the checkout counter. So we're going to change people's plates in their home to ten inches and set up like 12 inches. And just simple little nudges like that have profound benefits. Yeah, so we're always looking for the silver bullet and the answer lies in silver buckshot. So we have about a 120 small interventions like the ones you just mentioned. And our team endeavors, you know, we're going to try all 120. We're going to fail at 40 of them. But the 80 or so that remain in place, they exert a positive influence on people's unconscious decision. And therein lies the power. You know, for example, I'll give you one big macro example. Billboard signs. We know that neighborhoods that were there are billboards that are advertising sodas and McDonald's and so forth. Those neighborhoods, the BMI are between ten and 15% higher than the exact same neighborhood with no billboard signs. So I'm not going to go on that neighborhood in beg everybody in the neighborhood to start eating healthier food. I'm going to talk to city council. I'm going to show them the data. I'm going to ask, who benefits from those billboards and ask them if well, maybe people won't miss those billboards and sure enough, when the billboards go out, you see the obesity rate drop. We've seen in Vermont. We've seen it in boulder, Colorado. So why not aggregate interventions like that and put them to work rather than hoping that the food system is going to change or that we're always going to start eating like people in a Cadillac again. It's never going to happen until there is a focused effort at comprehensive comprehensively changing the environment. Yeah, I like that because I'm working on the federal level, which is challenging. And there's a lot of obstacles. But you work on the local level, and you work with local people and local communities. And people who live in those communities care more about their communities. And I think they're more willing to make those changes. And people in the city governments and local governments and town governments actually have more incentivized to do the right thing. Sometimes, but you can get done. It could take a decade to change major policy in Washington. It could change in three months in a small city. A mayor, you know, government happens at the local level. And the mayors and the city councilman and women are way more powerful at exerting a healthy import influence on people in their city than anybody in Washington. It's so true. I can see I can see it's such a smarter play. I think you're doing amazing work with that Dan. And I want to sort of close by having you talk about the last group of the four that we didn't talk about. Which is the Asian Americans, population, because we don't think of that as an indigenous American population. I mean, slavery has that brought people a long time ago and they really brought their indigenous ways from Africa and Native Americans have been here in Latin America, south central mesoamerica are clearly Americans. But Asian Americans, you don't think of as originating here. But how is their food waste helped us to sort of live long? Yeah, so it's not necessarily indigenous people that I was focusing on. I was looking at immigrants. People have come here and the fusion of their homeland cuisines with American influences. So Asians came here, Asians taught us how to eat greens. You know, you see these wet markets or these vegetable markets still in New York City where there are literally dozens and dozens of kinds of greens. And I would say Asians, Korean Americans, Japanese American, Chinese American, you look at what they ate around the turn of the century and it was fewer than 15% animal products. So they got really good at making plant based food taste delicious. And really of excelled in it. So we spent a lot of time in Hawaii where I think the most interesting Asian fusion is taking place because they've had strong influence from the Filipinos, the Japanese, the Koreans, a lot of it all in Los Angeles, Los Angeles area. We spent a lot of time in Minnesota with the Hmong populations. It was sort of an austerity that has forced creativity and innovation and we captured about 20 of their best recipes that are really American inventions. Like, give me some examples of the recipes. It sounds like they're just full of these really unusual, but incredibly delicious recipes. Yes. So like these Vietnamese tacos, which or a this is not going to sound Asian, but it's a tofu that's made to taste like on top of that is tomatoes and cherries and sort of a sweet umami flavor on top of that. So it was a 100% plant based. It's mainly taking these original recipes you'd expect to see in these countries, but then using the available media American ingredients to prepare the final dish. I can't wait to get my copy then. I'm going to start cooking them. I'll send them to you. Dan, you really did some amazing work. I mean, your work has touched so many people, not just obviously the stuff you did in communities, but just the inspiration to understand how we can start to reimagine our creating our lives in ways that make it easier to be healthy and live

I make Christian conservative and I have to exist in the shadows here. Please shine a light on the treachery and the demonic activity, strong wording in Berkeley, California. So not exactly sure which part of this he's talking about. I would imagine though he's talking about the anti white racism that exists at UC Berkeley. When I'm talking to people that I call normies, we use that term sometimes normie as a term to describe someone who is not exactly enlightened on all these topics. I will commonly and frequently cite black only spaces on college campuses. So for example, if I'm talking to somebody and they say, oh, yeah, come on. America is not really going in a direction that is troubling. We've been through this stuff before. Now, mind you, I get this sentiment far less than I used to. I mainly get it from people over the age of 50, not all people, but just mainly. And they're usually well to do their well off. They're well established. They're economically anchored. And they'll kind of challenge me and not in a disrespectful way. It's sometimes at a donor event or I'm speaking at some other person's event. We do a lot of speaking, and they'll say, come on, Charlie, don't you think you exaggerate some things?

Maybe we have to cut taxes and do some things, but come on, Charlie, America is always exempt from pain and suffering is basically the essence of their argument. I get it a lot. I get it less, especially in the last year and a half, but I get it a lot. And the example that I usually use to counter the normies, if you will, is talking about black only dormitories. Spaces that exist on college campuses where whites are not allowed. In one 42, Tucker starts off and he starts articulating this, that at University of California Berkeley, there's a housing co op where only people of color are allowed, and it's banning whites from common areas unless they have consent from the tenants, white people are not allowed in our spaces.

It came from the mind of a tech billionaire named Sean Parker. You know, the guy who founded napster in the 90s made a boatload of money investing in companies like Facebook. Well, David wessel is a journalist and fellow at the brookings institution, and he wrote about Sean in his book only the rich can play. And David says, by the mid 2010s, Shawn was looking for ways to, you know, to sort of pay it forward and he wanted to solve big societal problems. So Sean started a think tank called the economic innovation group to develop the idea for a tax incentive. They were so convinced that all the past efforts to use tax incentives to direct money to poor communities were failing because they were too complicated had too much red tape and had too much oversight from government bureaucrats. And so they came up with what eventually became the opportunity zone law. It said that anyone who invests money in an opportunity zone and leaves it there for ten years can take the money back out, tax free. So win win, right? Sean and his think tank enlisted a coalition of bipartisan supporters. Democratic politicians like senator Cory Booker and Republicans like senator Tim Scott. Then fast forward to late 2017, Donald Trump was in his first year of office, Congress was debating overhauling the tax code. Remember that whole drama. And this is when opportunity zones made their way into the law. And it was being slipped into the test cutting jobs act. There was zero attention. The first national newspaper story to even note that this was part of the 2017 tax bill, didn't run until a month after Trump signed the bill into law. But you know who did notice? State governors. They saw this as a chance to draw more investment to their states. And so they scrambled to designate opportunity zones and when the dust settled more than 8000 communities across the country were labeled. By the end of 2019, billions of dollars were flowing into OZ projects. Some estimates range from 24 to $75 billion. And this got David wondering, where is all this money going? And what's it being invested in? Well, unfortunately, we really can't answer that question definitively because there's very little data available. The data reporting provisions of the law were stripped out as it went through the Senate. So based on my reporting and the limited data we had, the money is flowing mainly to those census tracts that were already attractive to investors, like downtown Portland, Oregon, or Austin, Texas. Key phrase already attractive to investors. And one piece of evidence for that comes from a study done by a pair of econ grad students at UC Berkeley. So what they did was analyze a partial sample of 2019 and 2020 tax returns to try and figure out where the OZ investments were going. And what they found was they appeared to be super concentrated. Like roughly 80% of investments went to just 5% of eligible zones. And separately when they looked at investments overall, they found the money tended to flow to zones that might have had a high poverty rate, but also had a growing population rising home values and a lot of high income residents. In other words, places that were already on the path to gentrification, not exactly the kinds of places that might need a tax break to attract investors. On top of that, the types of projects being funded, the vast majority are not new startups or small businesses. Instead, most are real estate projects. Some of which might have questionable community benefits. There's a whole little industry in building self storage facilities, which may be great, amenities, but they don't employ any people. They're not going to uplift a community. Other opportunities and projects include office buildings, upscale student housing, hotels, and condos. Remember that Ritz Carlton in Portland. I'm actually there in my mind right now. It's not that no one is using opportunity zones to do what Sean Parker and the economic innovation group said would happen. It's just that there's no requirement for that. And there's just not really a lot of social impact investors. There's a lot more profit seeking investors. What is Sean Parker? I have to say about it. Did you were you able to talk to him? I did talk to Sean Parker. I haven't talked to him since the book came out. I don't think he liked it very much. We got in touch with Sean's think tank, the economic innovation group, and talked with the group's CEO. John lettieri. And he says, first off, it is way too early to tell whether the program is working or not. And he believes critics are focusing on outliers. There's always going to be some use case that sneaks in under whatever bar we set. And that's very frustrating. That's just the blunt instrument of policy. John also takes issue with that Berkeley study we mentioned earlier. As we said, it was based on a partial dataset. But based on that data, researchers found only about a third of opportunity zones saw any investment at all. Now, from John's perspective, that is actually pretty good. He says, the numbers show basically how a brand new policy is working and will improve. So I think part of this is the Rorschach test, right? Two people can see the same evidence and they come up with different conclusions, but I would choose to interpret that as a promising start and one that we should carefully watch in future years. Could the law be tweaked? John says, sure. Phase out the rewards for investing in already thriving neighborhoods. Make it easier for investors to put their money into small businesses rather than real estate. But most of all, he says, collect data on who's investing what, where? Something he says the think tank had pushed for in the original bill. Let's make opportunities zones the most closely measured, carefully evaluated policy of its kind ever. Because this is very much a policy experiment. And for my standpoint, just because it says opportunities zones on it doesn't mean it's by definition good. We want to see it gotten right. And in fact, congressional lawmakers introduced legislation earlier this month, that would update the law. You know, try and close some loopholes, add guardrails as to what qualifies as an opportunity zone. And perhaps most important of all, it would actually start tracking the data.

"In and then health hopped on the first flight out of there, man, it was gone, Jack. You want even more evidence? Well, how about a recent study from the British medical journal global health? And for details on that, we head to the exam room news desk. Researchers say they have evidence that a sharp rise in preventable disease in certain countries is tied directly to the consumption of red and processed meat. An analysis of data from 154 countries shows a spike in diet driven disease in places where the so called meat trade began to boom and consumers in turn began eating more meat. Evidence there reveals an often substantial rise in the number of deaths from colorectal cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. Researchers say northern and Eastern European countries as well as certain island nations in the Caribbean are being hit the hardest. Now, the rates of disease retract over a 25 year span that began in 1993. And researchers, they were pretty specific about what they classified as red meat for this analysis. Their category included beef, lamb, goat, and pork. But you could say, well, cork isn't exactly a red meat. Is it right, isn't it more whitish? Well, here's why this is important, because they're classification of red meat also specifically excludes poultry, fish, and eggs. It also excludes processed meats since that has its own distinction. And that definition for processed meat, well, that includes red meat products that were preserved by smoking, salting, curing, or with chemical preservatives. And they say that they were primarily from beef and pork. And you can find the link to the study right now in the episode notes. So all of these diseases are preventable diseases. It's simply does not have to be that way. And you know, something else that Dan said that really stuck with me is how big of a difference that beings can make in your health. Instead of study showing where red and processed meat can take years off of your life, Dan was talking about studies showing that eating just one cup of beans a day can add years to your life. Years. Is there a good chance that there's more to it than just the beans? Well, sure, but if you're eating healthfully, a diet that includes beans and you follow the practices of the cultures living in the blue zones, you are giving yourself the best shot at blowing out 100 candles on a very big birthday. And I will tell you what. If I'm fortunate enough to live to see August 28th, 2082, we're all gonna have one big party. Everyone is going to be invited. Now remember also what Dan said because it echoes what so many of the doctors and researchers have said on this very program. He said that genes only play a small role in the grand scheme of things. It is you who is behind the wheel of your health. It is you who has the control to steer your body in a healthy direction or take a turn down the sick superhighway. And dance book, the blue zones challenge, that book is like the fuel that can start up your car and get you going. And you better believe that there's a link to it in the episode notes. And for today, that's going to wrap things up. I want to say thank you once again to mister blue zones. Dan butner for being here with us. And for everyone at the physicians committee, I am the weight loss champion chuck Carroll. Thank you so very much for listening. And remember, as always, keep it plant based..

Only twice a week consumed meet five times a month and drank up to six cups of coffee a day and took in about a quarter as much refined sugar and the elderly folks. There did not like soda and they also have high levels of olive oil consumption and they drink to four glasses of wine a day so again we can see in the balloons. The people are not going crazy with the with the meat intake. What i suspect is going on here in these blue zones is that when they do eat meat. They're doing it and to celebrate. Some sort of festival birthdays religious holidays. Things like that and so they are probably only consuming really high quality meat. They're probably not like not like heaven chicken they're probably probably got like a. I don't know a prize lamb or something that there that they're slaughtering and then enjoying that so that their their meat intake is Quality over quantity which obviously that works.

We first set out to investigate the mysteries of human longevity. We teamed up with demographers and scientists at the national institute on aging to identify pockets around the world where people live the longest healthiest lives. These are the places where people reach aid. One hundred at rates significantly higher on average live longer healthier lives than americans do. They also suffer a fraction of the rate of killer diseases. That americans do we worked with Some of the world's top jibbidy experts to distill lifestyles into the characteristics. That could help explain their extraordinary lounge. Their cultures have evolved this wisdom over time just as nature selects four characteristics that favor the survival of a species.

The population there appeared to be the longest lived in italy. Perhaps even in the world in one village of twenty five hundred people.

It could be a figure eight but the idea. Is you create something wet and then you use more breath and then if you wanna play with temperature play you can purchase your lips to also go over it with cooler air because if you open your mouth wide like you're going to get warmer air and if you purchase your lips you're gonna get cooler air fuel a effective technique after for me if you're already worked up when the skin is even more sensitive than than you do that and that tracing the idea that if something's really if you enjoyed on the way down the anticipatory feeling of knowing that it's coming back right really a lot of fun i love it.

I like the figure eights technique where you just tend to take the palms of your hands in sweeping figure eight patterns across the body and you don't avoid their hot spots but you also don't spend any extra time on them. I also like the two handed hearts. So you're sort of just using your palms or your fingers in a heart shape to glide along their body. I like the hard soft stroke where you kind of use your knuckles to pull in one direction and then kind of a barely there palm in the other direction and i think i think maybe we'll stop there kind of a whole lot of techniques.

What about the inner thighs. Yeah for me. That's my favorite. I love the the cheese and the playing with the inner thigh for sure and the other thing that it was just thinking about is doubling up on some of these things. If you're comfortable and you know what some which your partner legs. If i like. I know what you like. I'll start doing two or three these things at the same time. You might not even notice because you're fixated on one of those three but there have been circumstances where you've done something and you're doing something else and i'm just it's too much. Do you know what i mean in a good way like. It's pushing me over overwhelming. Yeah yeah no. That's so true that we don't need to fixate. On one thing. The reason i try and share some of the less common ones like the superstar notch filter is just to remind people to like explore the entire body. And so in. Terms of how to touch erogenous zones. There you know any way that feels natural to you and that you know your partner seems to respond to make sense but i can share some techniques first and foremost try touching only with the backs of your hands. If you're going to explore the entire body try moving slowly with the backs of your fingertips. Now i'm going to say this slowdown and be gentle and then there are always going to be people who say i don't like it slow. It makes me tired when they're gentle it tickles. That's perfectly fine. Like your body. You know your body best your partner know their body best so you just have to communicate right and talk about what you actually like say. I like a little bit more pressure if your partner says that what you're doing is tickling them you because it's too gentle..

"I think that's a good point. Yeah so. I just want to back it up before i answer you. So when we say erogenous zones were just referring to areas of the body that you know we associate with pleasure or sexual excitement or arousal and the whole body is a big potential with this genus song. Where am i going. You're going to saying i'm going to ask you go. My registration is my brain. Nope it's my brain now. No i'm not. No i like having my tummy touched a lot Yeah like i really like having my stomach touched on my cheeks. Definitely my hands on. I want to talk about some of rodnina. Soanes that maybe people haven't explored. So when we talk about erogenous zones. We don't mean that they're necessarily path to orgasm. I am actually. I'm glad i'm talking about this because we will be talking about full body orgasms on our show on friday night on intimately. You would doctor jazz. But some of these areas aren't going to produce workout them but if you touch them as you lead up to orgasm what will happen. Is you'll feel a tingle or you'll feel sensations or you'll feel contractions or you'll feel something in that area once you finally reach that peak of arousal so one area that tends to ignore is the face and i thought i'd start with the superstar notch so this is a really highly sensitive area. You don't apply much pressure hair but this is you know. I said the face but i was lying. It's a little below the face. One area of the face is the filter so the entire face can be supersensitive to touch. And if you've ever had an orgasm where your face tingles. I know you know what i'm talking about. But the phil trump is derived from the latin word for love potion. And it's just that sensitive groove right at the center above the upper lip so that little kind of groove between the nose and the lips now again. Are you going to rub your penis on that and have an orgasm. Probably not but if you just kind of use the backs of your fingernails or this or that area. It can be really sensitive. Another spot that people tend to ignore is the superstar notch so this is just below the face on the neck and it overlays the you have to be really careful with it. So it's at the center of the neck just above the collarbone. So if you breach and feel your collarbone and you know how it kind of can acts in the middle right in the center there so if you can kind of just kiss along the collarbone with your lips in your tongue and then maybe breathe. Gentle warm air over this indentation kind of khun just arouse their interest and then working your way down. You can play with the sides of the chest. I think that's a part you like a little bit right. Yeah i do like the sides just underneath my arms just down and actually You're talking about the size. I also like the side of my neck touched because you're sitting here describing these body parts. I'm just gently touching them start realizing the sensitivity so anyway. I'm enjoying this podcast. So far so please continue you. I mean obviously the belly button is one. That's been kind of long associated with sexuality. It's kind of our giver of life. It's rich in nerve endings. It's been painted as both kind of visually and tact highly erotic. Because it's exposure has been banned in decent in dress codes kind of across the globe testament to it's taboo sexual associations and you can kind of just play around the edges of the belly buttons stimulate the shallow part of its groove or..

Connect with a lot of people every day especially on facebook and the last few weeks. I've noticed a lot of people expressing their self doubt and the fear of actually stashing something. And what are those people. Finally enough with podcasters. That would wanting to stop a podcast but had a lot of self doubt around with a people would want to hear their message whether the technically be able to pull it off to grow an audience to had to monetize it. If i wanted to do that. And i had all these outs and doubts. And i'm like the chiefs quote. I'm like no just do it. And you can figure this stuff out on the way. And i remember before we met having simla sort of self jobs. Can i pull this off. Can i find enough to talk about. Not really that surprising. You probably couldn't stop me talking. But i did have this self doubt around with i'd be worth listening to on my line. And that is the initial reason why i wanted a podcast do it with and i'm blessed enough to have found zebras podcast partner in the welsh thing. I think that waiting just gel so well together. I think the universe for that but the point is that i see all these people expressing that self-doubt expressing that fia and i know that part of it is because they're feeling safe in the comforts zion and taking the leap to actually do something and make public like podcast can be a scary thing self doubt and the comfort zone. I'm not sure how closely they are related. When we speak about is comfortable then for them to not do it. But the urge of having the wish to great podcasts and to produce a podcast is there so the jury acidy already is awaken. So i do believe that it is very important that when we have the wish to do something new that really look for mentors we look for information we look at others how they do it and then have a look at it. What is it that. I liked how they do it. And what is it. That i don't want to do because i don't like what they're doing. And then the more information. I'm gaining the more comfortable. I will feel within myself and then it becomes more easy to make that step and then go public or create a new fashion label. Get on stage and give the talk or create that facebook group or startup. This company go and get the job. Find that partner that you're looking for meat. That girl meet that man and just find out. I do believe the self encouragement is very important.

That will smith actually did and he video himself in the airplane he jumped out and then again ostry landed on the ground and he talked about haskett scared he was before he did it and how once after he'd done it he felt just so amazing that he'd pushed through that fia and done something that he wanted to do even though he was scared anyway and it inspired me and i thought well maybe i will try one day. I'll probably do a tandem. Jump was something much safer. Because i am a bit of a scaredy cat when it comes to hots guts. I like the idea of embracing my fees..

"Think you're right. I think curiosity is one of the keys as to how mankind has progressed that edge in us to be curious to learn more to want to master. Something is happy. People excel and have made giant breakthroughs in whatever realm it is they working and then usually comes the fun factor because the moment we curious than oh so. Let me figure this out. Let me have look at this. And then it is more fun especially when somebody tells me a days. You should try for example. Something really funny happened to me. I receive a phone call the other night and someone tells me daisy. Keep that that date open. Because i have a surprise for you. I said oh really. Will you tell me and says no. I'm not surprised anymore. But my curiosity is really. It's so big that so. I'm sitting here since evenings now. And i'm thinking okay so what's going to happen on that day. What will be surprised.

I was relaxed more but nevertheless so you see the comfort zone. So where does it start. And where does it end. And how far do we go. Because i know people. They went skydiving. I know even people who do it really frequently. Because that's their hobby and they do that on the weekends and they cannot possibly understand why i would never be curious enough to try it.

She had no fear a better ol- she's noisier of hot whatsoever and she loved it. I think that's instinctively. Some of us have certain fees about things and that will hold us in a comfort zone.
