How is QAnon coping with Trumps loss?
"Just ling is a montreal. Based reporter who covers among many other things. How cute on is taking The results of the us election. Hello justin eight or thanks for having me. You're very welcome. Can you just start by Telling us at this moment A couple of weeks after the us election. What is the current Prevailing hyun on theory. It's hard to even say there's a prevailing theory. If you can dream up a totally meritless made up invented conspiracy. Chances are they've at some point. Tried to make it mainstream. Cunanan believes you know different elements within cunanan. Believe everything from the idea that donald trump himself has orchestrated this uncertainty as a way to draw out the deep state so that he can round them up and put them on trial and military tribunals for treason. that's one end of the spectrum. The other end is that this is the deep states. Last stand and that the international child trafficking ball probably led by hillary clinton and maybe the uk royal family have managed to buy off all of the media and all the establishment and all of the states and all of the vote counters and all the vote counting machine companies to orchestrate this plot to steal the election from donald trump. Ben have only narrowly gotten away with it. But you know by god. They're gonna turn the tide yet. I mean that's that's basically where we're at and it sounds fantastic but also what's terrifying is that elements of these conspiracy theories have become orthodoxy or on trump's twitter feed on the news outlets that he keeps promoting recently Whether it's fox. News what. American news Or newsmax a bunch of other right wing websites and it has even filtered its way into court filings that the trump campaign has filed in swing states in an effort to overturn the results of the election. It is bewildering and absolutely out to lunch. But it is having a real impact on the current conversation about this supposed fraud and in a minute. I'm going to ask you what that means for democracy in the bigger picture but of all those theories you just mentioned None of them seem to be well. trump lost so maybe q. Was wrong and maybe we should look at this more critically. That happening anywhere. Yeah i mean i. It's so hard to say right. So there are definitely posts in the queue world From followers who are saying. We've been let down one too many times. This is not the first chewing on prediction to not come true. I mean you for those who are still kind of behind the curve. on that i envy you You know who cunanan believes that there is a high ranking intelligence official who been posting information to message board eight chan under the pseudonym q. and has been revealing elements of a deep state plot against the president and the president's own crusade to beat that the state back now. A lot of those posts are incredibly cryptic but in in the few circumstances where q had made very direct and obvious predictions. They've not come true. There has had to be some incredible mental gymnastics in order for kyun on followers to conclude that in fact he was right all along. There's all sorts of some sort of numerology that goes into saying. Oh well in fact you know. It didn't happen on this day but later on. The one point two predicted that the national guard had been dispatched to cities across america as part of the mass arrest of democratic officials including hillary clinton well. Obviously that didn't happen but when years later the national guard was sent out. By the president to clamp down on the demonstrations across the country while queuing on sure found a way to reconcile that prediction with the the eventually use of the national
The Voicemail That Gets a 70% Callback Rate
"Most salespeople. Hate leaving voicemails. Now he asked him why most them say well because they don't call me back and reality is you're right. You're absolutely right. If you have the wrong voicemail. So the next few minutes. I'm a teacher my voicemail scripting that gets me over seventy percent callback where the have taught to literally thousands of reps over the last decade. You step by step exactly what to say how to say it. So as you'll listen to this only to really listen to the tone. And the words i say and also explain the why. It's so effective now. First off most within leaving voicemail at south something like this hey scott. It's marcus shannon with abc company. Hey i'm giving you a call. Because i wanted to show. His great solution has xyz benefit one time and calendar. Here's my number blah blah blah. Now you might get some calls back off that but it's usually pretty religious very very small percent. they'll call back instead. You want to shift it to this. Hey scott it's marcus. I'm calling in reference to abc company. Please going back on my cell five or one to two one nine nine nine nine again. Five four one two one nine nine nine. Thank you boom. that's it notice there. The tone it's firm. it's not enthusiastic. It does not sound like a sales person. So that by itself is a pattern interrupt. They're like ooh what's this all about. The second pieces knows how limited information you gave. I didn't say it's marcus chin. Said it's marcus when he say it's marcus or it's your name the first name the psychology behind is they recognized as a. How should i know this person So they're going through their heads into the voice mail now he's to peak some curiosity and then the piece is north. Korea didn't instead named company. You're working with us. Dropped a reference in our reference should be an existing company. You do business with so now. They're like oh what's this all about. So now what's happening is you provide a limited information. You're told is firm. You don't like a salesperson and now ukraine fomo in their in their mind fear messina. They're not sure why you left voicemail and as a results that will lead to a higher likely to them listening to it and call you back now. Have you also noticed as well. It's very short. Voicemail maybe fifteen twenty seconds long so easy and fast for them to listen to and be able to decide what to do next. And here's what's really powerful. Let's say for example. Yuli voicemail on a monday and you wait two days and you decide to call them again. Wednesday and you'll leaders zack. Say message again verbatim with nothing changing. Think about if you're on the receiving received to the same voicemail of someone standing firm and preliminary information in which their tone is creating. Its firmin's now your chance of them call you back increases. And what's amazing is when you do as consistently with every single voice you will see. You will get more calls. Because they're not sure why or call and when they're calling you they're guard is down and they're more open to the conversation okay and there are thrown off. That's very powerful state to have your project and when they're calling you and i promise you do consistently for every single call the exactly verbatim how i said the tone. You will get more called the ever gone before and i have had reps who say. I'm not sure i was going to work for me. But then they commit to for a full week. Every single the voicemail. They saw got more calls back than error. Of course more practice with tonality in the firmness you will see. Your converses will also skyrocket as a result.
Lunar Water is More Abundant Than Previously Thought
"Astronomers have discovered that water maybe far more abundant on the moon than previously thought water is is already being detected on the permanently shadowed floors of craters neither Luna polls with some never reaches and signatures for hydroxy polls that he's molecules made up one hydrogen and one oxygen atom has been detected on the lunar surface now, and you study reported in the Journal.

An Election Night tradition: The concession speech
"One of the few remaining events when the entire nation gathers around the Elektronik campfire. Forgive me for interrupting. Ohio Falls for Bill Clinton. To learn the nation's political future. Together, we could be in for a long night. Whether the winner is expected President Nixon has been reelected. Well, there's a roar of approval here or expectations are appended word. There is that Hillary Clinton has called Donald Trump to concede way watch because we are part of it. This presidential race is still not decided. This is bigger than the Super Bowl bigger than the World Series presidential historian Doris Kearns Goodwin, because the big difference is you may get completely caught up in the drama of those other sporting events. But we are participants were not Spectators in this A big election night 19 to 1950 to set a new tone for election nights in the television age. Univac is a fabulous Elektronik machine. CBS pulled out all the technological stops before the space age was a well known term CBS introduced Remington Ran's Univac is not a joke or a trick. It's an experiment way think it's going to work from a reporter? It, predicted the night's winner, General Dwight D. Eisenhower. But speaking that night before Eisenhower, people have rendered their verdict on die gladly accepted. Illinois Governor Adlai Stevenson resoundingly defeated Gave the first nationally televised concession speech in American history. It is traditionally American divide hard before an election. It is equally traditional to close ranks. As soon as the people have spoken, but he's got that understanding of his responsibility and setting a tone. I think that becomes an example. For all the people who concede afterwards, Senator Obama and I have had an argued our differences. And he has prevailed and those same themes you hear throughout. We have fought the good fight and we fought hard. We've come to an end. We accept this result. We will work together and once the decision is made We unite behind the man who was elected Florida goes Bush. The presidency is Bush. That's it, but not every election night has a concession speech bulletin, Senior Gore aide confirmed. Gore withdraws concession That's bulletin material with a capital B. Some elections don't even end on election night about 10 minutes ago, the vice president did call the governor and retracted his concession. We put Florida back in the undecided category. I think like most people in the country, I went to bed with a seen on my TV show in the The vote count in Florida. I woke up the next morning, turned on my TV and realized that nothing had changed, and we still didn't have a president. Moments later. Tallahassee attorney Very Richard got a call from George W. Bush's team. A lawsuit has been filed in Palm Beach County and Bush needed a lawyer. Good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen, I have with me this afternoon, Mr Barry Richard of Tallahassee, Florida. The recount transfixed the nation If we don't figure out the count right on, this were a banana. Republican voters who never heard of or thought about ballot design came to know about the butterfly variety. Some say when they went to select Gore, they mistakenly punched Buchanan. Everybody knows about the chance now and hanging chads. Does the Chan had to be punched all the way out? Do you look at a temple? Is that enough? In a flash Barry Richard became one of the most recognized lawyers in America. Keep counting forever. You know, when you assume as I stepped out of my office door, they were a mass of reporters walking backwards in front of me wherever I went. The confusion and chaos continued for 36 days, ending on Lee when the United States Supreme Court handed down a 54 ruling stopping a hand recount of ballots in Florida. Ensuring George W. Bush would win the state's electors and therefore the presidency. Could What happened in Florida back then happened today. This year. Several states will count millions more mail in ballots after November 3rd and that could delay final results for a day or more. Already in excess of 400 lawsuits have been filed about election rules. Unlike in 2000, lawyers for both campaigns stand ready to fight over any perceived infraction. But for former Bush attorney Bury Richard. That's not the biggest difference he sees between this year's election and the contest between George W. Bush and Al Gore. It never even was a consideration for a candidate to say that He wouldn't accept the ultimate results once they were. No. We want to make sure the election is honest, and I'm not sure that it can be a Donald Trump as candidate and now president has repeatedly refused to say if he would accept the results of an election. He did not win. The only way we're gonna lose this election. As if the election is rigged to remember that

Breaking Down the Quarters and Semis for the KR Contenders Playoffs
"Let's dive into our predictions for I guess we'll do predictions and then matches them predictions and matches will go in order here. So first match. We both got right. Yep Yep whoop do. We knew that team B M was not up to the task against Wgn Phoenix, and that's what happened. W just think took the three one against them I. Actually yet the three one which is actually kind of surprising because. Outside of an absolute banger that will talk about a little bit later this was the only other one that didn't go three Oh. Team. VM being able to squeak out that one map made it interesting for all of seven minutes and then. wgn Phoenix was like Nah. We're We're. Shutting you down. Yep and that one map was Lee. Shang where we saw Sung Chan gets some key hacks onto as tax on the. Road at least twice I think. You kinda tried his best to. Negate as tech but as we talk about here in the next couple of matches. Stack is shown to be really solid like you had like I think one match that we watched last week or two weeks ago where I felt when it was from. But like there was some issues dying on Bussan but beyond that, especially in these playoffs matches really leveled up. So that team tried their best to try to counter him and they did on the first map but beyond that w kind of took off and really the only other thing that I noticed outside of that. They were playing real chaotic, not super super structured. Just looked discombobulated, and then you get over to a new business and protect literally holds onto his grab for like foil. Yes and it's like there was there was a bunch of times where he could have used it. Either defensively to save some of his teammates and extend the team fight or initiate with an potentially win team fight and Nope, he just sat on it and then when he did use it, he threw it to lake. Horizon Lunar Colony I think because it just went nowhere got nothing and then they just got absolutely destroyed. Yup Listen to Wayne Gretzky protect you miss one hundred percent of the grabs you don't take so. You just gotTa. Do It man you just got? To. It's also a Hawker reference or an office reference depending on what what realm of the world you're in. The other thing too is like every minute that you're not using a graph building. You're not building graph and like if you hold a grab for like three minutes, you could've used a grab that it was like okay and then had another grab by basically the same time So. Yeah it's it's tough and like if you don't have the opportunity to use a grab at all because they're diva is constantly all over you and you don't have the counterplay or they're playing way to spread, then you probably should go on something else. That's better. Pick anyways and use the grab throwaway goldfish swimming dvr, go switch Sigmar anything else. There there's been a lot of issues that we're seeing a lot of the losing teams. They're. They're just like kind of shooting themselves in the foot with like playing what they should be. On the other side man wgn. Phoenix Lake after watching this match. I got really high on this tangle. Especially, ABC Z. Bag has been. Okay. But Gables specially was. Studer Pitt where you saw pack jump up, get damage onto. The Echo over the ACA was even. On. Haven, yeah then. He drops down back behind the cover again, and then you saw gable see right behind him come up boost up finish off the damage and then go back and then Win So comes up to resum they both dive a again and kill him as well. They open it up with two free kills and literally just roll beyond that. So I think that like one of the things especially it's been the tank line coordination for this team. In another team, we'll talk about later. Like it really sets these teams up apart like with the DP s with the one diver as well with the tanks in the one dive deep. Yes as well like. If, you have three people hive minded together you you will find success in grin contenders. And then another name on wgn that you're going to hear. US Talk. A lot absolute tyrant about is ace. When ace is on? The Sambre. Do builds EMP's insanely quick. But then on a newbies, they push team B.. M. Back to the spawn. And then they're like, you know what we got like a minute and a half left we're just going to go sit in front of the spun. And s just sits behind him and mainly heck's the supports like one clip supports drops an EMP. Like gets half of the team just absolutely bullying the back line of Team B, m on a newness and. Team B. M. had no response to ACE's play when he was running the sombre. and. It's super unfortunate that like he's only played this one pick at least what I've seen so far Inoke s on the hog. So good is unmatched in cream contenders I think I, think he might. Only, backed by MAG. But we'll see about that. Hit like he just every time like he forces other people to not play against him because he will just out a out mechanics them out strategy them and like just knows how to play better gets incredible. Pickoffs especially on Havana you saw him on the hog and Gable soon, the sigma they full hold team b. m., there as well So, like this tank line. Alternating CPAC and iino cast depending on whether or not. They're gonNA play the Winston saw shrine oranges run the Road Hog quite often because I think this was still on the playoff patch or like the wwl. Finals Patch. It'll. It's as strong three players on that team like they. Really. Really benefited from there, strong line here and gables the again like we talked about his diva being incredible signals also incredible as well during the scrappy last minute fights where there was a chance that team b. m. was going to be able to. Squeak out the first point actually cap it. he just stayed alive sustained had some good old good rocks Just good play and I think got like a couple of kills here there's also. You're going to start seeing a couple of these names come up next week when we talk not only about Plants and stuff like that but also on recommended. Pickups for teams in the off season because. Couple of teams might be going full Korean here and. There's a lot of new blood that's rear and to get some Odell time in. So I'm excited to see that I actually can't wait to talk about that team that I think is going full Korean 'cause. It's GONNA be interesting to try to put together. A bunch of players out of Korean contenders to slot into that team or and see how close we can get to actually hitting the. the mark on how many people get pulled from creon contenders.

This is just you and me kid from one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, nine with the classic comedy team, of George Burns and Brooke Shields Very Young Brooke Shields this. George Burns and Jackie Chan confused mentioned. Oh God you devillier yeah. So you're saying Brooke Shields doesn't play the old Vaudevillian and Doesn't play the the young kid on the run for drug dealers, I. What made me think I was like, Jackie Chan wouldn't have been in like Vaudeville. They didn't. You know he came from the Chinese acrobatics and obscene but. I just assumed it was a mistake on the on the part of the person writing the description I didn't even factor that in your right I'd like to change my answer. Dan. And say it is a Jackie Chan movie well, desert change the results. Is it like the prisoner's dilemma and now you have to let us go. I think that's the only. A moving on an agency. Like the Spanish prisoner where you're like, that's cool movie and then you think about and you're like, what was that movie about? Yeah is it like prisoners you're like? I think this is a good. It's really rainy. Is Very rain rain means bedroom ancient and.

Or crew of beautiful friends, take over the jeep tours and attract business and save. Day The old fashioned way by off their tops during the cores they're deleting. So I, think Dan wrote this summary. This unluckily unless you. Yes. Eliot I'm really nervous. If we say Jackie Chan isn't in this, Dan's get a blower mucking minds. Turns out. He was actually the Great Bikini off road adventure. Now, there's only one Asian Karen, the Gray Kenny off road adventure it is the tourist photographer who's obsessed with that one girl's boobs. The Jackie Chan is not in the Great Bikini offered adventure right there. No you're correct. That is the Great Bikini off road of adventure from nine, hundred, ninety, four but Jackie Chan is not in it. It's a bit much to say her crew of friends. There's only like three people, right? So One woman and two friends when people ask me about the podcast I'm like me and the crew were doing every day. That's Just three more Wayne A. Filmmaker with the unfortunate name Alan.

Let's Burn Hollywood burn starring. Eric idle is Jackie Chan in it Right Dan that's the movie. but it's not a movie. I've seen a different than the great beginning adventure which apparently, I've seen too many times. But I'm going to sit. There are celebrity cameos in that movie I think right? I think he's in Okay I'm GONNA say no, he's not. Unfortunately. Jackie Chan is in. Home Burn Hollywood Burn probably playing himself right Yes, he's playing Jackie Chan. Okay. That was a loophole. He got us with the. Channel. Came down to the wire the original characters. Wire leads us at times match understanding. This is. Here's Here's a synopsis of the original characters from the cannonball run race across the country wants more in various cars and trucks. They're not. Characters from the cannonball. Race across the country wants more in various cars and trucks. Now, that's clearly schindler's list which I don't really. That's cannonball run to. Saying which is Jackie. Chan Right Jackie Chan is cannonball run to. All right final question for the evening. When you said down to the wire, I thought that was the final question. I don't know there's just one more stirring the scooby apartment Jackie. Chan comes out it's going to be amazing. Yeah. The Jackie Chan one of the legends of not just action films. But also comedy films one of the true physical poets of the screen and one of the biggest movie stars of all time the biggest loser of all time. Richly deserving of the lifetime achievement Oscar that he of years ago you can draw direct line from Buster Keaton Fred, astaire straight to Jackie Chan in terms of just being so in control of your own body and also seeing the potential in the objects around you as extensions of that body and things to play and interact, and dance and fight with. So cannot wait till this guy comes out and just. Probably as complicated politics the night do really understand because I'm both dumb and drunk. I mean that's something that we need I mean he's not he's not American. You know he has his own perspective on things and he's had to work within a very specific filmmaking culture and political framework for quite some time. Yeah. So Dan let with all that in mind. Please surprise us with Jackie Chan. Hey. It's me Jackie Chan poet of the screen. So this. Movie. John has inherited a castle in Italy and removes their. Susan. Daughter Rebecca.

Bob Ho takes on his toughest assignment to date looking after his girlfriend's three kids who have exactly warmed to their MOMS blow when one of the answers accidentally downloads a top secret formula.

He's hanging from ropes mission impossible style, and he's gotTa look on his face like Oh boy in the kids are looking at him like what's this do is still and then it's Kinda crazy how influential that one scene from DEPALMA's mission impossible. Yeah. Yeah. Really is true. especially considering that like. I. Like is definitely not the best mission impossible movie. It was not the best diploma movie but somehow like the two of them crossing together, it is the Best Palm, mission impossible movie though you gotta say this. Is True Brian. DEPALMA's mission impossible to directed by John Woo. A little bit worse. I didn't say it was the worst. But I I mean, I feel like despite the the the higher level of quality all the in the in some of the other mission impossible movies I don't think any of them have like one scene was that. The. Other movies I mean, the last three undeniably are far better than the the first movies. But yeah, they don't have anything. No matter how great the sequences are there's nothing them. That is quite as immediately iconic as that Europe just hit at the right time people were ready for a movie where a guy was suspended from simply. Trying to keep his sweat off before. Back. Ninety s when everyone was trying to their sweat, the floor that was nineties right or is that early? It was certainly the pre skeet era when sweat dripped everywhere and no one cares anymore you know.

A man looking for the release of a longtime prisoner takes a police officer, his daughter and a group of strangers hostage. If it wasn't a police officer, that's the plot of Air Force One.

Or masterminds starring Patrick Stewart and Vincent What's his name alibis her? Vincent Gallo. Let's say if it was Patrick Stewart as an evil therapist, it would be conspiracy theory with Mel Gibson. Yes And if it was John Lithgow, a guy with multiple personalities as would be raising CAIN and also. sponsor. And if it wasn't a movie but a chain of fast food chain where you can buy chicken, fingers would also be called raising cain. If it was a chain where you didn't get chicken fingers instead chicken stars that would be Carl's junior. You give chicken stores when you go to Carl's junior, he certainly do.

Why Are Leaf Blowers So Annoying?
"Hey brain stuff lauren Vogel Bob here the sounds of autumn satisfying crunch the crisp apple or fallen leaves to your feet or the teeth grinding noise of a leaf blower. Powered by electric or gasoline motors that propel air out of a nozzle to send leaves and grass cuttings flying leaf blowers are probably the most Vilnai's devices in the lawn care universe to the noise that they have met in the mid nineteen seventies when leaf blowers became ubiquitous in the United States to California cities adopted early bands of the Equipment Carmel by the sea beverly labeled the leaf. Blowers a noise nuisance and banned their use a move that has been followed by hundreds of other cities across the United States to some degree. But what is it about leaf blowers that people hate is that the decibels the constancy delete blowers pose real dangers to the health of users or others who happen to be within earshot increasingly, the answer appears to be yes to all of the above. Leaf blowers may send leaves and lawn clippings for a ride, but the gusts which reach one, hundred, eighty, two, two, hundred, and eighty miles per hour. That's about two, hundred, ninety, two, four, hundred, fifty kilometers per hour also create a nose clogging swirl of fungus spores, herbicides, and microbes. The resulting dust is so aggravating to people with allergies, asthma bronchitis, and other respiratory maladies that the American Lung Association recommend staying away from leaf blowers altogether. And then there's the air pollution operating a commercial leaf blower for one hour and it's as much smog forming pollution as you would if you drove a recent mid-size car as say twenty sixteen Toyota Camry from Los Angeles Denver, which is about a one, thousand, one, hundred mile or a one, thousand, eight, hundred kilometer trip. That's because most leaf blowers used to cycle engines they're lightweight and inexpensive, but they require a mixture of gasoline and oil to run unlike more complex engines. They don't have separate chambers for fueling lubricants when operated the engine wastes approximately one third of the combined mixture releasing carbon monoxide, nitrous oxide, and hydrocarbons into the air. Three toxins are some of the main culprits in the air pollution from leaf blowers. Carbon monoxide helps for smug nitrous oxide is a prime ingredient in acid rain and has been linked to global warming. Hydrocarbons are cancer causing organic compounds that also contribute to smog formation plus leaf blowers are noisy. How noisy are they when you engage in conversation? That's a noise level of about. Sixty decibels according to the center for hearing and Communication. If you're strolling on a sidewalk in a car goes by that's about seventy decibels a leaf blower, even fifty feet or fifteen meters away can be up to seventy five decibels and right up close that jumps well into the nineties according to the World Health Organization any noise about seventy decibels risks causing physical hearing damage. And then there's the mental toll. Miss. A phony is a relatively newly classified condition in which people are angered by particular sounds like chewing or knuckle cracking although leaf blowers aren't mentioned in the diagnosis parameters it stands to reason this phony may be related to people's dislike the machines because they're extra sensitive to sound. Preliminary data shows that phones brains may have a hypersensitive connection between the auditory system and the LIMBIC system, which is the part of the brain that's responsible for creating emotions. It's so much a part of life for a phones that they can be shocked others don't feel or react the same way to certain noises. But being irritated by leaf blowers doesn't necessarily mean your phone. Erica. Walker a doctoral student at Harvard. University's Chan. School. Of Public Health discovered that is far less irritating to create a sound than it is to hear it in a survey of one thousand, fifty residents more than a dozen Boston neighborhoods, Walker found that the majority of respondents said they couldn't control or get away from noises like leaf blowers and they believed that no one really cared that it annoyed them. What's more other research has shown that leaf blowers, a low frequency noise that penetrates through outer walls into homes and businesses in a way that some other noises passing vehicles, for example do not. However. Leaf blowers have become an integral part of commercial lawn care while a leaf blower may sound like fingernails across chalkboard to you for the businesses that rely on them portion of their livelihood. It's probably music to the ears.
What we know about coronavirus reinfection from other diseases
"Hello I'm Alana Gordon I'm a reporter and producer at the world covering global health here at the world, we've been holding a regular series of Corona virus conversations presented jointly with the Forum at Harvard Chan School of Public Health, taking your questions to the experts. This discussion series is featured on our facebook page, but we wanted to share what we think are really valuable conversations with you right here in the world's podcast feed. This Week I spoke with William Hannich Associate Professor of epidemiology at Harvard. Teach Dance School of Public Health about the pandemic and the latest updates as we approach the holiday season. To start in the United States more than two hundred, thousand people have died of Covid nineteen. The number of new cases is growing by some fifty thousand each day it's a figure that's been rising for four weeks running and is up by more than a third since just a month ago, it's hard to believe. The fear is that this is just a preview of what the late fall and winter might hold cold weather sends people indoors. We could see much more dramatic rises in Cova cases with winter holidays coming, and that's also creating really difficult heart wrenching dilemmas for many families. Do you travel even places in communities where there are lots of infections or to and from So. To Begin William, where do you see us now in this progression of the pandemic? Where do you see it headed? When you write the that are increases happening at the moment. In fact, I think that seventeen states reported record highs in cases just last night However, it's not by on the states which occurred be saying the most activity mostly in the Midwest and these sparsely populated states the. However, the numbers that do add up. said the moment this is what we're seeing. We're seeing continued DHAMMIKA activity on low levels on which of experienced reasonable amount of it already, and then more intense activity especially in some of these small towns in the heartland and that's what we are. That's what's happening right now. It's a bit early I think to be saying that we are saying the stock what's going to happen before but we do anticipate that the more in the shifting indoors to places my transmissions more likely to the end and I think the we all seem impact, find some European conference. So not provides a little bit of a window into the future. So when you see these high numbers in cases being reported now more so than the past, are you saying that most of that were really seeing in some of these what mid Western states right now? Yes. At the moment it is it's also worth noting testing has got a lot better. So when we're watching these sort of epidemic lives increasing with action, we're seeing them way more detail we did not spring so. Ratio of can sort of cases to the actual amount of continued on the. It is now much more clearly defined cutting much more clear in science. What happens with mild ignition switches? And so are you seeing any sort of signs of as people move indoors or as holidays come up of what sorts of risks that poses and? How we might see this. PLOP. So I think the one thing that is really helpful to think of his. We. Can think about preventing pandemic transmission in particular preventing clusters of transmission because remember, this is the virus which tends to transmit and clusters intends to fact number of people up on time. Japan viane came up with this notion of the three C.'s which three CS which can be avoided if not consummation and those three C.'s aw. Close spaces. Close contacts and crowding. and. It's very easy to see how those three could easily be going to could easily come together when it comes to the holidays. So hold events late Indo spices are at risk for transmission. We also know that an furtherest transmission is easing. Now we have a report from a few weeks ago from CDC and declaring fatty clearly that people who'd be needing indoors in a restaurant in the last few weeks where you know that was associated testing positive. So putting all this together I'm afraid that you can see them the holidays to the you know they have the potential to be real serious problems at the salute transmission. And so I think the same time there's also people are experiencing fatigue with this going on for such a long period holidays may be seemed like time were just coming up. To be able to beat with up to ones and at the same time just in general when it comes to the ways that public health has really been stressing. From people like you about this kind of sees or about the mask wearing and things like that, how do you manage the fatigue of this continuing? And it seems like. Is there a shifts to? kind of people being more willing to just live with the risks and live this virus and what that means got I think that you can think you're right and I wanNA start but pointing out that, yeah, I, understand that nicotine. I feel myself I. was like good bunch not touching my face and by increasing touching my face. The thing is that I think what we needed. Was for people to be straight up about this since the pandemic it's of of coined, which is not really been seen in about one hundred years as the response to it will need to be coordinated and staying now. That doesn't mean that it has to be intense guy it's. One of the things which makes me and my colleagues tied is when you when we will saying Oh, we're talking about lockdown to accede. That's true.

GM-Nikola Deal in Flux
"Three weeks ago on this show, we talked about Nikola, the electric truckmaker because. On Day, shares of Nikola were more than thirty five percent on the news of its partnership with General Motors. That was a lifetime ago. The deal was supposed to close today. That's not going to happen in terms of closing today and. This seems like a story in Flux Maria because a couple of hours ago I was looking at that. The available information and thinking to myself well, I think I. THINK GM is backing out of this deal. We had the whole thing with Nikola and the founder Chairman of the board resigning immediately. Deleting his social media accounts, allegations coming out and it, and it seemed like. A couple of hours ago. Maybe Chan was just backing off altogether. Now it looks like they might be just negotiating better terms because shares of Nikola were down first thing this morning. then. All of a sudden. They spiked up eleven twelve percent Where do you think this is going? It's really interesting. So Nicola is has ambitious to make electric and hydrogen powered trucks. They want us and lease battering hydrogen-powered semi trucks, tip businesses for anyone who wasn't sure what the company did. So what this deal was supposed to be was GM would get two billion and Meka ls stock paid for with services and various. GM. Parts and components and GM engineer and manufactory manufacturer the manufacturer, the battery and Fuel Cell Versions of Nicholas Badger track. So at that time when they were talking about three weeks ago. which. Feels like a lifetime ago two billion dollars was an eleven percent stake because Nikola at one point, their values over thirty billion, which is larger than Ford and now the market cap is less than seven billion. So that two billion went from an eleven percent stake toe mustard over a twenty percent stake. So it's interesting if they're negotiating different terms, what that will look like going forward because two billion is now a much more sizeable chunk of that company than it was a week or two weeks ago. Yeah I mean just in terms of Nicholas stock three weeks ago on the show we when we were talking about it, it was fifty dollars a share today it's below twenty even with this little bump up. That we're seeing and it just. I want to give the benefit of the doubt Mary Barra the CEO of General Motors and her team. Because she's a very experienced you know for for whatever you think of GM, the company and whatever you think of the stock and from a stock perspective, it has not been a particularly great place to be over the last five to ten years. That being said, she's an experienced professional in this business. So I wanNA give her and her team to benefit of the doubt. I I look at. Everything that is unfolding. And I have the thought that I've had at various points in my life as an investor I look at a either an individual company or just an evolving situation and I just conclude there too many question marks here. There are just there are too many unknowns there too many question marks I kind of want to wait for the dust to settle to see what the new terms are. If the deal actually closes and then see where think shakeout. Yeah I think Nikolas definitely more of a speculative investment since a cart and they haven't actually manufactured car yet but I will say, I, am on the side of I really want them to do. Well, I hope that a deal works out with GM, because I think the future of electric powered vehicles is one that we're moving towards I think it's one that I would like to invest in I. Think Right now betting on them is completely speculative because you have no idea what they can produce but I do think it's important to note that within all of this is shown that there is a. Demand, they had an order for over twenty five, hundred electric garbage trucks from public services they there was an order I over fourteen thousand tracks from Ab Inbev which are planning to use them for long haul deliveries from breweries to distributors. So I think it's important to note that no matter what happens with this company specifically I think this trend is one that's going to have a lot of tailwind. So if I was working at GM and I wanted to be a part of that I, don't think this is a bad option I. Don't think that this deal is necessarily completely a bad idea for GM.

It's just I don't know where it is and he you know he's been given a chance but you know he's got another one this week coming up with Richard Sherman out till week five. They're gonNA give them a chance, but that's a possibility. If he doesn't keep performing to their expectation, it could be a cornerback. Those are the two positions that I see that they could address, of course, pass rusher as well. But I don't know if there's any that are out there absolutely, and I, think that's the biggest thing is fans we can do is to stick with these guys through this. All this is going to be hard. It means not going to be easy with many lunatic both yeah, it feels like maybe they're the superbowl isn't happening this year but this is a season unlike any other we've mentioned million times.

What we thought, they could do three weeks ago I. Think if there is any group that can do it you look at what? Kyle. Shanahan did with a roster he had. When they you know in that kind of mid range, they still were very close. He got to the niners and they had. Such a limited roster in. Yes.

"chan" Discussed on Asian America: The Ken Fong Podcast
"Yeah it's never happened since the team. Yeah I mean he he would point to. That's the that's the moment where Christianity is. A religion was not seen. As of religion of the underclass religion of the persecuted religion of the suffering of religion of the martyrs. It became religion of the Empire And so one of the more interesting things about this is not only the way. Constantine saw himself as the savior of Christianity as the as kind of the person who is going to bring the Roman Empire into Christian faith but the way the church leaders saw constant. And that's one of the things we make your. Cbs The church historian theologian is looking at Constantine as the savior of the church As the one who's going to stop this persecution and so now what are you looking at this? This leader this political leader. Is You know leader of an empire as your savior rather than the person who died for you. And that's a it's it's different imagination to imagine the world where you're savior is the king or the emperor versus. Your Savior is the servant of all so that imagination shifts with the epic Milanez shifts with not just Constantine's assertion of himself as the Savior of Christianity. But the church leaders who endorse that who who affirm that and write about him as the Savior of Christianity now. We have a very progressive audience. So right now. Everyone's mind is blowing up and being distracted because there's something almost exactly parallel to that. Oh yeah that's been happening for the last three years in the United States. Oh Yeah then. It was almost too easy low hanging fruit that we've seen this before and we send in other sections other other portions of history as well but the perilous so strong. Because you have again you serious Christian leader Historian Theologian who affirms what. Constantine is doing Who AFFIRMS A political Empire leader Emperor in order to get his agenda which is to stop the prosecution now. That's not a bad agenda. It's just that you got into bed with empire in order to accomplish that I would offer that. I think today many conservative Christians especially the white evangelical who who are his most unpaid moving base that their claims of being persecuted today are not what the first couple of century Chris. LemMe like. You don't let me say merry Christmas right. You don't let me be homophobic. Yeah you make me. Baker Cake Bake Right. But but I mean that definitely. Is that this mentality and I think trump right. I don't know if it was his handlers. Even has a handler. But a astutely said you know I can be that person for you and just like Emperor. Constantine committed all kinds of atrocities that those Christians were willing to overlook because now he's our I feel like the same kind of thing is going on today. One of these reporting to his. Constantine is problematic obviously because he kind of implements and the church and state the melting of that the elevation of empire and the elevation Crescenzi through empire. That's problematic. I think it's even more problematic with you. Then it's with the church historian church theologians and with the church leaders in which is to affirm and I wrote about this my other book about The similarity that you saw and I don't WanNa be careful here. Because you never wanna make the comparison Nazi Germany loosely. But the way that the church sanctioned the actions of Nazi Germany and it was very similar rhetoric. We need the power back. We need a lot of it was gendered language of A. We need the strong German Christian mail to be authority again. We're tired of the feminization of our nation and so the church getting behind the strong German mail and so we we know that the Aside from some key folks I bought hoffer and some others in the Free Church Movement They were very much on board. With what Hitler ended up doing In Nazi Germany. So just just to Kinda capsulize this or get ready to talk about what goes on like ten. Ten eleven centuries later the doctrine of discovery. There's this major paradigm shift that was intentionally done and you can argue for the right of the nation's by these Christian leaders to stop the persecute their persecution on them They basically throughout Christ and kind of entered into Christendom. Which which is this whole idea of the Holy Roman Empire that that somehow the government and the governor is long as they're kind of part of our faith. Yeah then this. This is like the best of all marriages. Yeah so again. It goes back to a contradiction of what Jesus taught and what ended up. The church ended up adhering to Jesus Taught Submission Servant Hood Jesus taught self sacrifice laying down life. persecution And I don't know the the Church get tired of it or just decided it was too much It shifted with. Constantine you yeah. Why don't we have power? Why can't we be the ones that established the language of Christian and comes in? I missed the combination of Christianity and kingdom so as as a dumb idea of power dominion that Christians can have and you know the the biggest more salient example of. That would be what happened with. Constantine and we see iterations of that the continue to follow along in Christian becomes the normative way of looking at the relationship construction state. So how do we get to visit the Fifteenth Century Finch? The doctrine of discovery. Yeah well I mean you had about a thousand years of history where the Church and state were very much in bed together You had a thousand years of history where you know. The kingmakers were the pope's Where the church was kind of alongside the growth of the empire. Whatever Empire that might have been the Roman Empire Spanish Empire The Portuguese Empire. So you you've had hundreds of years almost a thousand years of that history coming coming to pass What happens though in the fifteenth century is is is much more of an explicit put on paper. This is what the church is going to do to support empire and so this is where the doctrine of discovery comes in the doctor. Discovery was actually a series of people's not just one but several people bowls and were two sets of them. One was addressed to Portugal the first set and it was written to Prince King Affonso and it also specifically addresses. His uncle's name was Prince Prince. Prince Henry We known through the history of Prince Henry the navigator He was actually the progenitor and the one earlier slave traders and so this Portuguese King Alphonso and his uncle Prince Henry get this people directed towards them and it essentially says Because you are Christian emperors because you are Christian leaders and a spirit of God is within you and your made in the image of God when you encounter non-christians in the language specifically so Saracens which is another name for Muslim And also As as I mentioned Henry the navigator was exploring the African coast. So when you see these individuals that are different from you. They're not quite the image of God that you are and so you have a an implicit and explicit superiority over these bodies these non European bodies and so what it does is. It gives the theological permission for Portugal to begin to translate slave trade. And that's where we begin to see the The embodiment of this big really messed up theology and so now we have the church not only advocating for the power of the Kingdom of Fogel. They're giving them theological permission. They're giving them a a a theological backdrop and doctrine that allows them to go and to take Africans slaves as basically God blessing. It's God's blessing because it's coming from the trash coming from the pope himself. Yeah and it is. It is specifically given to the European powers and not an end of course disenfranchises in disembodied and devalued the African body. Now the second part of the doctrine discovery is actually went into Spain and so does the different pope but it's all part of the doctrine of discovery and is written to Isabella and Ferdinand And specifically addresses an explorer by the name of Christopher Columbus. Oh so timely. The that Dick was that He will was addressed in fourteen ninety three. So it's one year after Columbus sales the ocean blue so it's essentially the same thing similar language. It gives permission for the Kingdom of Spain and their subjects such as Christopher Columbus to view themselves as truly made it you made in the image of God and anytime they encounter a non-european body Such as the Portuguese in Africa and now the Spanish in the Americas You can view them as less than you can view them as less than human less than made in the image of God so again. This is where the permission is given to the Kingdom of Spain and especially to to Christopher Columbus to view the rest of the world Through the eyes of dominance the eyes of we have a blessing from God. This nation the empire of Spain has the blessing from God to go out and conquer. And that's why as is my co author. This is his job on this. He says. How can you discover lands? That are already inhabited this land. You claim you claim ownership over it. So what my co author? We usually say if you believe that. Then leave your ipads in your iphones lying around and I'll come and discover them so that's the same kind of logic where I can discover something that belongs to somebody else. That's exactly the theological justification These people who are in the Americas the six million lives and thousands and thousands of civilizations. They're not quite made in the image of God and so you have the right to see them as less than and therefore it's a it's Tabula Rasa. It's a blank slate. Did you come and just take over the whole Ho space and I think the mentality? If I'm correct I is like the we're doing you all a great favorite. Yes yes so that's like. Oh you know. Okay you've been on this land for. I don't know how long but look who you are you living in. It's like we're we're the agents of God and so we're going to bring civilization and -actly that's the whole papal bull idea. The pope himself Jesus and in fact even now some people justify slave. Would you say oh? But you know these Africans didn't have Christianity and so the cato slave. We had to be imposed in order to bring Christianity African. Well that's all garbage of course but a lot of that traces back to this idea that it was the European Empire. It was the European explorers that really possessed the image of the goodness that comes from being made in the image of God and their job was to spread that whatever means necessary and part of that meant subjugation and enslavement of African bodies and the genocide of native bodies. Yes on I'm trying to imagine if I'm one of those indigenous people and these Pale skin people on a ship drop on my thing. And then they enroll this parchment and they start declaring in Latin or spent it certainly language. I don't understand right but I think the way it went like the pope says basically what you've read this declaration route for me. Like everything is like. Then they have to submit to all.

"Your employer should be able to monitor your private thoughts well employers already starting to try to assert their right to Moan on issue by reading your emails. Some employers are saying that they should be able to look at your social media to try and determine what's going on in your personal life so yes. I think we needs defend all of these rights but we need to defend them against isn't necessarily neural interface technologies at one fascinating voice in this whole debate clearly as Elon Musk who runs this come inure relinquish made a bit of a splash this summer when they announced what they were doing and in his understanding of what's going on at the moment pretty much all of Sorority cyborgs we already massively dependent on on our smartphones to enhance our capabilities and in a way in the way that he was explaining it all we're doing is improving the interface between between man and machine having Niro links as it were is upgrading. Humans fingers and words are a very bad way of interconnecting with computers and that we would be far more efficient if we combine the cognitive power of the brain with the processing power of the computer and far quicker ways. Is that a useful way of conceptualizing. What's going on or is it just downright scary way of thinking about it? I think there's something in the idea that neural interfaces just the next step in technology so we now have smartphones so the computer comes with US wherever we go in fact sometimes wished on days when I've accidentally left life own even at home and I'm cut off from contact with the outside world. I've occasionally wished it was implantable so that I wouldn't accidentally forget it but even before that the desktop computer and the world wide web provided new form of connectivity and then if we were leaving for the back just things like literacy so the written word and the ability to read and write all of these these have represented changes in our relationship with technology changes in our relationship with information and with each other and people have been skeptical skeptical of the changes that those technologies will bring really at all stages. I mean even Plato talked about the written word as the `pharmacon. Should we be scared of these technologies. I don't think so necessarily I think we need to have a healthy sense of what's really stick now what the challenges and opportunities are that are coming up and to think about not just the hums and the scary stories but also the benefits that we might achieve one of the consent. I guess about what we know. Muskie saying is that if you have a concept concept of all humans are super race that this would create inequality is on a scale that we cannot even conceive of today that you would have people who will be able to think can act so much faster than all the rest of us. Is that something that needs to be guarded against even. Can it be good at against one of the concerns with I think any new technology oh gee that has tremendous beneficial potential as neural interfaces is this question about access so who's going to be able to access these technologies and how and I think it is the case if they do produce all or even some of the promised benefits that if only some of US connects them and not others that's clearly going to create inequalities qualities now that social reason that we shouldn't go about developing the technologies but it is the reason that we need to think carefully about how they're implemented how they made available and ensure that we're trying not only to avoid widening inequities but using them to address current inequities so going back to the history of technology if you like. I talked about out reading and writing and it used to be actually the case that literacy was the technology of the elite and we've gone from that to a position where we we have at least in high income countries almost universal literacy. I say almost but it's not universal so we already have gaps in educational attainment. We have gaps that really materially impact the way that people can participate in our society so if you'll functionally illiterate there are many jobs that are not open to you. You may have difficulty in accessing basic social services. You may have difficulty accessing your democratic right to vote so we already. We have these massive inequities within society. I think the trap in thinking about equity in terms of access to technologies if we look at New Orleans faces and we think about the possible inequities of access that might result and we say well okay. We just won't go that way. Then we can wipe our hands and walk away and say there we are we fixed the problem of social injustice in actual fact we haven't it exists now. It exists before we have these technologies and so actually what we need to be doing is diverting energies to fixing the inequities currently exists and thinking about how we can actually use these new technologies in the most just way possible. I I guess the other argument that Elon Musk makes this in a way is the last best chance for humanity in a world as he sees it in which artificial intelligence is inevitably going to supersede beat humans in the not too distant future. This is a great way of merging with machines if you can't beat them join them. I think was the phrase that he used. Is that a useful way of making this. The idea of a super powerful malevolent artificial intelligence is one. That's been brought up a number of times so the idea if skied in it for example my understanding of. Ai Is that most people currently working in the field. Don't see that has likely anytime soon indeed. If ever I think it is most likely because we will be controlling the development of artificial intelligence. We would be hopefully guiding collusion so as not to be hostile to us that said I think an interesting situation is going to arise the day the first artificially intelligent computer turns around and and says please don't switch me off and I think there are good reasons to start thinking about what we'll do when that day comes will we think of an AI robot as one one of us and if we want them to think of us as one of them the least we can do is think about extending them the same consideration so I'm definitely early on the we don't necessarily need to beat them. We probably should join them rather. We should let them join us. Do we need to physically merge with them in in order to do it. Well not necessarily that said if by implanting New Orleans faces we can increase the range of benefits that are open to us. There's not necessarily thoroughly any reason that we shouldn't do so but it doesn't need to be literal merging of human and machine and the Ross is had he is really doing great service in putting lot of these issues into the public remaining trying to stimulate a public debate on these issues. Are you hopeful that it will end up in a good place. Yes I am and I say that which even more after having seen some of the public dialogue work that's come about so we sometimes think that you ask the general public about technology and they'll tell you all the reasons why they don't want it and that's absolutely not the case in this case what we saw was enthusiasm excitement interest and lots of hopes around the potential both in the healthcare sphere so people who are worried about they left one suffering disease etc but also for the range of just exciting and cool applications that that these technologies might have. I think the public dialogues also illustration and the extent to which people do have the capacity to reflect very deeply on these issues to express what it is they want and also to express the desire to be part of it so one interesting thing about neural interfaces as I said they're going to be emerging urging across a lot of different remains that means people are going to be accessing the technology and a whole variety of ways. How do we integrate the learning that we you get from that. How do we integrate results from say clinical trials of device together with the people who are out there buying and putting things together themselves together with the people. Who've maybe been living with one on already for the last several years? How do we use the data that people are generating as if you like citizen scientists around neural interfaces in order to help develop the technology across the board while my main conclusion from this conversation is it's a very good job that we go ethicists at the center of this debate so thank you very much for a fascinating conversation..

I put out to the world when I I've been running founder for about two and a half years. And I remember watching these video never heard of you in the first video I ever watched was with that. I saw with you. Said something that was really striking to me as you looked at the cavern. You said the reason I am speaking to you. And you're looking at the camera saying the reason I am speaking to us because I've worked hot oven year. And you've just got these these ridiculous mentality around hustle and dry and really want to tap into that and find like where did that come from man? I think so thank you. And I I pulled that move once or twice on camera. So and it's a good one right because it strikes so deep it. I'll tell you why Nathan you doing what you do. You come across a lot of experts. Do rose thought leaders you probably at this point. I'm giving you a compliment I could be wrong. But I'm asking you. I'm sure at some level, you feel pretty good about your radar of who's completely full of shit. Who's got some level of CIA ABS and who's got more jobs. Right. I wouldn't assume that's something you probably pride yourself in. Yeah. Yeah. For sure. And the reason I asked that and we don't know each other that well, so the reason I actually just said that was not to give myself a Pat on the back and say, oh, and then you think I do it's actually because you clearly resonated with a very raw honest moment in me giving an interview which is what that moment is which is that's just the truth. Right. Like like, I'm probably equally talented to a lot of people out there. I think I have a lot of talent. But I think a lot of people do what I am completely convinced about and it's really why have started this new daily be kind of log on YouTube is I just don't think people cannot work me. I you know, when you're working fifteen and sixteen hours a day every day, and you're working every minute. There's no downtime. I mean, I literally just checked into a hotel room, you know, this because you just got a text from ISIS in analysis saying I might be fifteen minutes late because I was literally just landed. I literally ran to the to the hotel room. I'm sitting in it right now got the wifi. So this would be high quality enough, you know, sound. So you know, every minute is accounted for where it came from. It came from being an immigrant. You know, my family came to this country with nothing it came from watching my mom and dad worked their faces off my mom three kids. No extra help, you know, laundry cooking cleaning up after myself. My dad never round ever working always DNA. I think I have it in me. And then probably the things that are a little more. Interesting for everybody who's listening, which is makes it a little bit of gratitude and guilt. I know that I've been gifted with communication skills. I know that I've been gifted in ability to make money, I don't take them for granted..

So tell me it's not gonna help you? I didn't say it would. I said it was worth a shot. All right. We're off track again. We're talking about consent. We are. Yes, that is our topic for the month. We're really excited. We have lots of good guests. We're talking about a lot of interesting things, and it is a nice semi smokey day here in California in California, sunny smokey, California. I'm going camping today. It's gonna be great except where we had to completely change their plans at the last minute. Yeah, I was like, I can't go if we're going to go there because it's too smoky so we switched it up. But anyway, we're already on a side note. I just wanna say to anybody affected by the fires, you know, reach out to friends and family there to help you. I know that we have a rotating door in our house for friends and family who are taking refuge as well. So, and we're sorry for any troubles and challenge you're having. And we need to figure out a way to stop this because every year it's getting worse. All right. Now concerned environmentalists. Let's talk about consent. So today we're talking to Karen BK Chan and she is a sex and emotional literature litter literacy. I can't talk. Can't I. Bad over here? No, I was just going to start with the sentence just to make it hard. So today we're talking to Karen BK Chan she's a sex and emotional literacy educator in Toronto, Canada, and other Canadian. I'm starting to think that it's your designed to get just as many Canadian guests on our shows. Am I going. Was the whole point of the entire statement that was it. Maybe we should bring Karen on. 'cause we're just we're doing great. Absolutely, Karen. Hi folks. Awesome. Can you tell us before we start? We like to ask the question, what are your gender pronoun preferences? I use she and the so. And I noticed on your bio that you have both, Karen. NBK. Do you have a preference? I don't use both, Karen and became your excellent. Well, tell us a little bit about yourself because you'll give your bio better than we will and you'll probably pronounce it better since we're not having a day with us. I am a sex educator and also an emotional literacy or educator. So the short version of it is I talk about sex and feelings to my favorite things, and also to things that maybe countered to assumptions two things that I don't come to naturally or easily. So that's why I studied them. So can you know a little more like McHugh talking about emotional literacy education? Like what does that would like? It looks like taking emotions, not for granted and believing it to be a literacy, like you know, language for speaking to the right now or literacy, like music learning music would be. So allowing folks like myself who I think of myself, somebody who came to understand and use and play with emotions late in life. I really just didn't get it for a few decades of my life as literacy. So taking it as literacy, that means I can learn that means I can develop that means what I don't know is not necessarily my fault, and I, I have the power to get better at released into it. I can. Prove my relationship to the thing and that their skills involved and that all makes it feel more optimistic and positive for me as opposed to like you either suck at it or you're one of those intuitively amazing people..
