Ironman Duo Team, Brent & Kyle Pease, on Training and Racing Together
"Do you remember your first round together. Once you've got the chair and all of the proper equipment in place for you to train together what were your first runs together. Like our first one park and it was one of those weird days in atlanta on february where it was just perfect. Whether you know it was like sixties low seventy something like that and it was just it. it fell. you know we had done all these different things. We had done the wheelchair soccer. We had done the. We had done the modified sports in the backyard. But this for whatever reason just felt different felt like we were both going in the same direction at the same time So it was just it was. It was a lot of fun and we were already at an age. Where maybe you're not hanging out with your siblings like that. You're not competing together anymore and here. We were at in our twenties getting ready to tackle these huge goals that we had never thought of and what about the physical component. What was it like. For each of you brent. What was it like pushing a chair. Because it's very different than say pushing a stroller. Like i'm i'm a mother. I have a two year old and running with her a stroller. Like i'm i'm very weak. I do my best. But like i hit a slight incline and on my coo. Get out and walk. Andy like it. It's hard and so for you brenton. Obviously you're you're in incredible shape with a twelve hour iron man but tell me about the adjustment to running with the and then kyle. I wanna hear about from your perspective. What it was like to By the way. I'd rather push kyle than my three year. Old strollers are not. They're not like pushing. Kyle like we're in this now. But the original chair we had was basically an adult jogger or an adult stroller so is meant to hold somebody up to two hundred fifty pounds and so was very similar. My arms were kind of locked out there long and my back would get really sore in my last. I just. I would be really sore. Because i've lost that arm swing and you know we eventually got better equipment but even then you don't get the extra stuff that a normal runner does again. You're not swinging your arms. You don't have that extra motion so you're you're kind of just stuck right behind the chair and then of course there's the just the sheer weight of it There are parts. that are easier and also scarier. I mean the first ten k we did was downhill ten k And it's at the. Time was the fastest that i had ever run a ten k because it was all i could do to hang onto that chair as kyle's wait in the three wheels pulled me straight down at the bottom of the

Were you good at like buying cars for cheap and selling them for for more expensive guy would say we did okay. I did it with a very close friends lacks chandra. Big part of the business was great work. We would buy cases of baseball cards warned sorted and then basically sort them into full sets and then sell the sets and the sets were sold at a premium because somebody had to sort them.

Let me break it down into manageable sections the idea build up and the actual event to his comes to when it relates to the idea. You have to know your overall audience. Whatever your topic you have to be clear on the change you believe your students can achieve by studying it. There has to be a clear outcome for them. That they'll miss out that don't attend. Then you have to build the course around what you stand for you make it far easier for people to sign up for your course when what your delivering a line to what you stand for. The flag already.

Robyn Vinter, founder of The Overtake, on closing down the publication
"At your high. Roughly how many people did you really have signed up. I think we had more than one hundred. I'm not sure exactly how many Because has spread of a patriot in steady but the problem really was that revenue wise. We will always growing but would just never enough. You know we'd get maybe an extra support to a month. Which was absolutely brilliant. And i'm i'm so grateful for having this about his book. The kind of initial idea was to grow much more slowly than i am and not have not have staff and you know it got to the point where after a couple of years so many people come on board and there was so brilliant and they volunteered time. The i was trying to pay as many people as possible and And i was and i was doing that book. I realized eventually that they would never going to get a full-time job. Out out of this on fears and i was kind of like stringing them along a little bit with giving him. When are you saying that. In some ways he became oversaturated with writers. Then totally yeah. That's exactly what happened so the plan had always been you know when when we set up the plan the palm had always been on my plan initially had always been to have me and co-founder someone to run the business and meted do the editorial side. I felt quite confident building the traffic and actually i did that. Rarely really quite well and partly through knowing what would be well but partly through absolute coincidence We had one hundred thousand unique in the first month. Which is which is a law in an independent assessment am site. Yeah and that was being very lookie impove. That was by design. Obviously and so you. Yeah so the the idea had always been taps on the business side of it. I'd i'd gone on kind of entrepreneurship program saying they were very keen on Just launching a me. They'd always say general innings until you alone. And i was like i wet in ad. Retina startup befall. I worked in different companies. Am i knew hundred percent while i needed and it was someone to do. The business is so someone to do the revenue in the marketing side of things. And i would just focus on building the site in a building. The traffic i'm boats. I so that was kind of a big mistake. Rarely of mine was that. I just completely to that advice on board even against my better instincts. So i'd never intended to vernet completely alive and beveren said why not and then tonight i i guess i just thought oh well maybe the right. Maybe maybe once we get going you will always figure out exactly by knew it wouldn't and i don't know how allowed that auburn while the message that i was getting law of was You know what you need until you loan. That was the first one second. One was m u You all the best person to sell your business. I i also need. That wasn't tricks and sales before and i was terrible absolutely terrible like i can persuade people out people interested. I can persuade them out. So it feels like you're describing may actually exactly like i think that the skills ev sales in journalism monte overlap at all and they kind of almost the opposite in a lot of ways so yes i i i knew i would really struggle with that but again i thought maybe i've got this untapped potential. I never knew that had. Maybe maybe actually trying some iron thing. I i you know. I'll be good. But now i wasn't absolutely terrible am so yes i by the time. It kind of like registered that that those with the reasons why our revenue was going slightly. We were in quite difficult financial position. I already had paid rightism bald. And i did get to pay sales people though call by just couldn't give them in hours ready to make in sponsored content side of things. I'm sorry yeah i think. In hindsight i was very keen to kind of hang on to every brilliant writer. That came along diplomas debilitate said that they would have fulltime jobs eventually. Bachelor i think probably. I should've i should've stuck with just made a mean somebody else and you would have been the best way to. I think to be clear about this. Who were these other people that would come onto right for you. Say m initially. What how it started was i was kind of this one person band and somebody local uni hit emailed. Me and said can i conflict experience and i was like well. It's just me. So he can. But i i think i'd even gone back and gone. Actually no no. I'm just won't pass and so everything is at. I think is going to be like no now. I'm really keen. And i was like okay. Fine you can go. And i had some temporary office space. So in a shed off says she came she records painting. She was brilliant. And i was like. Oh this is actually be quite useful to have to have. Somebody is time consuming. Obviously to have work experience people badgley. She did some brilliant stuff. And i think challenge the week to two weeks. She's brilliant. So i was like okay. Fine i'll accept. Experience people amend wants the wet. Go out about that. I was getting a couple of emails a week if people saying. Can i come and direct experience so i started doing a one day a week internship which i thought was probably the best way of doing him So it it lasted like if you had two these up in fifteen days in total. I normal three weeks if you if you would take as a you know three weeks. Which is what the bbc does. All the bbc did. I don't know if they still do that. And i will take. Anyone is all out you know. I wouldn't especially the star. I wasn't kind of filtering through applications is just. They gone waiting less than make a come one day week. So many of them because leads. We've got i think. Three or four of the universe. He's got journalism at least three of the university's journalism goes as the only get work experiences. kohl's so i was just kind of inundated so i took as many as possible and some of them would just exceptional and graduated or whatever they were like. Oh you know had been one of the audience was like please can. I was like no. We've got rule. Like don't i don't want it to look like i'm expecting you know we've got the fifteen day role nuts set and he was like please like he. He'd worked in in a crappy job and he was like please. This is oil for to like all week. And i was like okay. I can say and really talking on your heartstrings. Then yeah exactly and and then that happened a few times and kind of people people stayed. And then i could kind of pay them a little bit of money. I would probably and bear in mind. I should say most of i wasn't paying myself a tall and actually allow the timer was paying reporters in my my team and i wasn't paying myself which i think was actually probably mistake is all because then i had to do a lot for you on swift kind of made me. I guess compensate. I mean you've gotta live yourself robin them. Yeah exactly. And i say when when you gonna plane and they say if in the event of an incident like you've put the the extreme skinny sell first before you before you put on a child and i think he's a bit like i think i was putting oxygen masks on my team and then i was in financial dire straits and i was already overloaded with with everything that that came with the. Take that really. I shouldn't have been doing freelance. Work to try and survive. I should have been pay myself first and then the team second to you wish you a oven. Oh one hundred percent. Yeah yeah i think. I don't know whether we'd still be here. I don't think it really changes that much economically. Some of the decisions i made were based on the i like these people and they deserve to be paid for the work day right. No i'm business. I'm running a business. And i have to think about myself in the business i and i i did it again. I definitely i definitely do that. this you'll freelance. Rate was fifty pound a feature correct. Yeah yes he was a flat rate. So it's fifty pounds name out. What was said. I can easy piece feature opinion. Although we didn't do a lot of body and especially numidian do love opinion. Because i am. I was just getting pitched signed much opinion. An alavi was quite. I guess uninformed unqualified opinion. Love was about politics and it just it wasn't it wasn't right for it so we kind of do not
Is Refresh Model S/X Battery Smaller?
"We know that the range on the long range version of the model s. has now increased to four hundred and twelve miles so previously and this is apn estimate previously four hundred to right before let's refresh so we only saw a ten mile increase. Which you know makes us think okay. Tussle didn't really change much in terms of the batteries there but they did note in the earnings report that they made changes to the batteries. Major changes to the modules yuan. They're still using those eighteen. Six fifty cells from panasonic But they have updated the chemistry or at least made some updates to the cell and battery architecture and general replaced those skateboard Visual image online. So it's it's definitely update in terms of the batteries but only see ten additional miles of range. Come out of that. I was pretty interesting especially when we look a little bit deeper and we noticed that the drag coefficient on the model s. has now been lowered from. I believe it was point two three before to now points two zero eight so that should definitely helped with the range. It's a pretty significant reduction in drag coefficient and then we've also seen them drop the weight so the wait for the long range model s now starts at four thousand five hundred sixty one pounds versus before. So i've got the way back machine pulled up here and this is from january twenty fourth. I'm not sure if you can see that. On the stream but from january twenty fourth the long range plus model s had a weight of forty eight hundred pounds so they've cut two hundred and fifty pounds out of the weight. They've reduced the drag coefficient so five percents rate reduction a significant reduction drake officiant and yet. We're only seeing ten more miles of range. This could be a trade off between tussles optimizing for in terms of energy versus power. Obviously the zero sixty on the stock in the long range right now has dropped from three point seven seconds before now down to three point one seconds so some of that could be impacting. The actual range that is happening from the epa tests. But if all else was held equal certainly expected a bigger range improvement from vizier. Point or the zero point two zero eight cd and the two hundred fifty pound weight reduction ver only ten miles only two percent more range two and a half percent more rain when they're cutting weight by five percent so we actually see a similar thing with the model x. As well flip over there so this current long range after refresh. We now have of starting weight and i think i think the drako fishing stay the same on the model x. but we starting wait Five thousand one hundred eighty five pounds on the model x. Verses here is again so this january twenty fifth so before the refresh. It was fifty four hundred thirty seven pounds so again similar. Two hundred and fifty pound reduction there almost five percent and only an actually in the case of the model x. We see arrange decrease so we had three hundred seventy one miles. Epa estimate before. And now we're at three hundred sixty so they only gained ten on the model last. They lost eleven on the model x. A to think that. I always this is pointing to me towards tesla potentially using less fewer batteries in the battery pack. Maybe that's not the case. Maybe these are software ltd but to cut that much weight to cut the drag officiant drako efficient and not gain more than ten miles of range. I think is pretty perplexing so dessel may have found a way to just you know they may have just said okay are target. Here's we're going to stay the same range. We're happy with these ranges and you know we think the customers are happy with these ranges. We're going to optimize for cost and just reduce the number of cells were putting in these new modules packs for the refresh That could have been an option or you know again. Maybe it's just that power versus energy exchange.
Blake Shelton defends 'Minimum Wage' song
"On the phone. Right now is blake shelton it. We got new song out today We do and It's we kicked around actually releasing this song last last year at the end of the year december and and happy anywhere still kind of having its moment at country radio and we didn't want anything to get in the way of that record because that's been fun record to have and didn't want anything to interfere with what it what it may go on to do And so we backed out. And now we're releasing this all minimum wage. Which i've actually had recorded now for Maybe a year or something and and just you know everything. Kinda got thrown spun out last year. Obviously it did for everybody else and and So we're gonna come with a new album that this'll be the first single off of that album and we're pumped about it just because it's it's up campo it's fun and fully energy and and I definitely need some of that in my life and hopefully Everybody kind need some of that. If you put out a song and it does not go number one. Is that a disappointment to you Well that's been a disappoint not just at this point in my career. I mean if you're going to release a solid radio. I mean you're lying to everybody if you say it's not in the back of your mind that you hope it goes number one. I mean you otherwise. You wouldn't even release it to radio and go through the promotion process and you know all the things that you that you have to do to to be a part of that world. I mean you know. I mean you see. Every week somebody is trying to get their record number one and and You know for me. Not that i expect it to go number one but at the same time. I'm disappointed if it doesn't just because i know how hard everybody on the team works to get those things to the top you know and it just try to get done. Blake shelton on with us. What was the first job you had where you made minimum wage our roof houses in ada oklahoma and they may have been more than minimum wage. I think about. I think i got paid eight dollars an hour and i feel like way back then. Minimum wage might have been six dollars an hour or something closer to that. So man i. I stepped right into the big money. Roofing houses you know. I wrote houses to arkansas. But i didn't. I don't know if you started like i did. I had to be tear off. Guy i before i was actually the guy with the shingles is that. Was that your pat. I never worked up to shingle. In two years. I was a tear off and carry. I could carry by the end of the road. I can carry two bottles of shingles up at a time on on my shoulder which is like a hundred and twenty pounds. That was the only time in my life. I was ever in shape. Of course i was still a teenager. So i had that going for me. How do you feel about the return of the mullet. What do people say about yours back. In the day versus you know kind of the new generation of the mullet. Here's how about it. Because i'm a little jealous And that's been honest. i'm. I'm a little jealous that i don't have the mullet. But here's what i've found. Is you know you look at morgan. Wall he's a good looking guy and he's in shape and and when i've tried growing my mullet out this last last year during the quarantine time i realized for me. You can't be fat and have a mullet lock. You know what. I mean in order to get away with it. You have to have something else going for you and you know back in the day when i had one man. I was skinny. And that's not how it is anymore. And so i'm gonna have to. If i'm going to have the mullet. I gotta lose hundred fifty pounds. There's a lot that's a big number man pat is. I'm sorry bobby. Blake this whole controversy about minimum wage. When it finally gets to you that people are. I don't know whatever they are. Do you roll your eyes or do you go to this Well i've learned over the years not to just roll my eyes. You know until. I really get to the bottom of whatever. The particular controversy is that But when i saw this on was i i mean. I don't want him everything but it kind of a role of the is. Because i think if there's if you can find something offensive about this song i mean you're either you're just looking for fight or you're probably not a country music fan to begin with you know it's i. I really can't draw connection between anything controversial. And i love song. But you know it's It's the times we're in. i guess but we're just. We're proud of the song and and we love it. Which is weird. Because as soon as i heard about the controversy i came on and was just railing against these overly woke folks. It's what i was calling him. And then i started to get pushed back for standing up for the fact that it was a metaphor for life in that i was someone who grew up on minimum wage for most of my life. I wasn't. I was just so irritated in ronnie dunn fight. The standing up for two like why in the world is happening with folks. Think you just gotta go okay. Well that's your your take. We're we're going to keep going on with reality on this road and you can take whatever turn you want to Because it's at the end of the day it's a song about if you got love and then you didn't you've got the everything that matters you know And again if there's something offensive about that then i this is not the the world i wanna live in. Have any of your other songs sparked up debate. Like do people get upset about hillbilly bone. Because you know you know you know. Only you know only time that people get upset about that song when we perform it live and trace sexually points In the in the area makes it makes it big deal every time it gets to the chorus like. He's got a point to himself to be sure you understand exactly what he's talking about. I don't know. I don't know i don't know what to say. Oh i i thought he he points to a hillbilly and the crowd. Yeah that's right that's not me up. Blake shelton's got a couple more questions for you. I was talking to devon dawson recently. Who is one of the writers god's country and he told a story about how they they had sent playlist to you a few songs and god's country was one of the first ones on that playlist. Can you just kind of tell me your version of the story. But hearing god's country i was well. I don't think. I heard the other song that they spent because wanted god's country was the first song on that email or whatever i got and i stopped right there. I was on my There's a rumor going around that. I was on tractor But i was actually on skid steer different kind of equipment. But i had a both in that thing and i was i was mowing and doing some things and i figured out how to our. He's not think. I even tried to open the email to see if i could learn how to use my bluetooth and and And i turned it on. And then i was. I was shocked. I was blown away. I couldn't even believe what. I was hearing. 'cause i knew that it was it was a it was game changer. It was that lacombe. Nothing would be the same for any of us involved after this song is far from a career standpoint and and what it was going to to do you know and in my mind anyway because every time you record song you say oh my god this could do this or that And this one seemed like it would just almost Start a new chapter for me. And it did to be honest It's one of the few times that actually had a vision and trick that the my last question for you if twenty eight number ones now twenty eight like once concerts return. You're at the point now where you could do. Two nights in a city playing pretty much all number ones and other massive songs didn't quite number one is that something that you'd want to do is do two nights and a city making sure you get all the hits in what i wanna play in front of a of a full crowd and two nights probably will be one night too many from i guess i guess if people would promise they would come back in the second half then. Yeah that would be a blast. I used to always think that about george strait. I always thought it'd be cool if he did like a marathon like a four or five hour concert just all these number one hits and it was on. Hbo or or something like that. Yeah that's my big idea for george. Anyway he needs it. I think he's he's in the business for some career advice so i'm gonna hit him up. Tell him he loves it. He loves to work. I'll tell you
Ultralight Flying With with Madison Johnston
"Let's move onto the crew's flight and first. Let's start off here madison. Because i've one of the things i'd have to say i don't know a lot about this This whole part one. Oh three type of flying so right off the bat. Let's get people to understand that and then we'll talk a little bit about why it's so much fun. So part one of three is Ultralight flying the aircraft has to weigh two hundred and fifty pounds dry so less fuel and oil. I can't carry more than five gallons of fuel and has to cruise fifty five knots it's up to the pilot and the builder to really Make sure that. The aircraft's follows that The designers do their best to designer craft. That follow those rules and fly at those speeds But in the end of the day at the end of the day it's It's up to the the pilot to make sure that that is followed. And these aircraft I've seen these over at like sun and fun and a lotta different airshows and the light sport air shows that type of thing. Usually you see ultralights there. What's really it's interesting because it looks a lot of them look like airplanes are kind of beefy other ones. There's not much to them. It's just a wing and you and the bugs and the teeth in the air. What are the common questions. That i get is You know hey his that really safe to fly in and so let's let's get that the bat right away. What do you think i mean. I know madison When you get that question. I'm sure you do often. What do you tell people when they ask. Is it safe to fly. There is safe to fly as you make them It just like it. You're certified aircraft. You've gotta do your inspections you do your walk arounds The the differences that a part one of three pilot. I'm doing the maintenance And i have to make sure that everything is good to go on that. So i mean it's a safe as i can make it And i wouldn't lie it. If i didn't feel confident in getting up in the air with it so so one. Oh three rules You actually so you. I guess do most people buy or do they build these. I will. I bought most of mine But i am in the process of building a mini mak. Sixteen fifty aeros. I bought plans while. I've been out here in afghanistan and Slowly accumulated supplies at my house to build. Get back in february But i i bought all of the aircraft That i currently on Between myself and my hanger. Buddy we have nine not including the arrows that i'm building and the two experimental aircraft that i also have That am constructing. So you're really involved.
How To Use Goal Setting In Sales
"How to use goal setting in sales the latter method versus the mountain and if you're a sales manager or CEO, you might not like the first part or something maybe the concepts of what I'm going to talk about but trust me stick with the whole podcast recording and you'll like how I finish discussion, you know any great achievement in our same career most likely started off as a goal. Maybe you went to the annual sales meeting and saw people on stage getting awards for their selling success. You decided right then to make that your goal or maybe you decided you wanted to be a manager or vice president or CEO or the company after a successful sales real? Well, these are all great reasons to set goals. How else If you don't know how your mind works those lofty dreams can crush your desire to even try but before we dig into that last sentence, let's review a few goals setting quote on some thoughts. You know, there's an old saying a journey of a Thousand Miles begins with the first step or aim for the stars or sets your size higher. I mean higher and know even higher or quit sandbagging and that's one that frequently in sales we get from our managers who want us to raise our goals success is built on a series of failures. That's a common quote out there in off the internet memes that are go around today. I want to talk about the the mountain method first cuz that's a that's the typical goal-setting Journey that we hear about and that's set off a great big goal. Think about some of the great goals that have been set forth in history. And one of the most famous was posed by President Kennedy to land on the Moon by the end of the nineteen song. She's now that was certainly an inspiring goal to set all good and great. But not all mines work the same if you're a hundred pounds overweight and you set a goal to run a marathon. I mean, if you're dead in your first week of sales and you set a goal to win president's club or if you barely know how to pack for a backyard campout and you decide you're going to climb Everest. Well, these goals can seem so far off that they will crush your dream when your ten miles into your Thousand Mile journey and your legs are killing you in the goal is going to weigh on you like a ton of bricks so much so that you would be inclined to quit and just like so many that came before you that lofty dream becomes a burden you aren't willing to carry you pass by that picture on the fridge of the six pack abs when you reach in for the six pack of beer you skip making that extra sales call as the journey to the Million Dollar Club just seems impossible. Well, that's where I want to introduce you to the lads. Method and what I found was the process of incremental goals, you can call it the ladder method or climbing the ladder of success the letters not just an analogy. It's a literal thing when it comes to reaching a long-range ultimate goal after many years of goal setting. I've had my share of successes and failures along the way early on in my journey, the ultimate goal seems to distance and the decision to turn back is really strong. Our mind needs that feeling of making progress. We have to feel like we're getting somewhere and that's where short-range goals come in. That's where these these small package mental steps. You can call them checkpoints or resting spots on the climb to the Big Goal. Well in the earlier example of the overweight individual with the marathon goal. I was actually only fifty pounds overweight and I wanted to complete an Ironman instead of a marathon with no earthly understanding if I could even achieve it my first goals were to get my weight under control and to consistently exercise. By walking well that turned into running and then biking and running and then swimming biking and running on a regular basis. And then of course six years later, I was ready for the final piece of the goal is ice pack 13 and 1/2 hours in the panhandle of Florida completing an Ironman and in the earlier example of the sales person in their first week on territory who wants to be on stage winning president's Club. It was actually the month before I went into sales and I sat there in the crowd as fifteen of the top sales people were selected for The Ultimate Sales award. I mean, they were their results wage astounding I couldn't even imagine what it took to sell that much was setting off towards that goal over the next few months. It just seemed futile. I got rejection. My numbers weren't even close. I was more worried about just being able to sell anything enough to keep my job. So that became my first goal sell something, you know, that's that's the big step on the way to the top sell something. What seemed illogical then sell enough to keep my job and that meant meeting the standard we had for supporting the cost of a salesperson and making a profit. Next goal is top third in the region. The great thing about them is is there are numerous ways to measure or look at results. We used to have a lot of fun with this one. You can measure Yourself by units by dollars by units and dollars by increase in one of those areas by new customers buy new customers within a product line. I mean the list of measuring sales success along the way is endless. Well those two Journeys winning president's club and completing an Ironman. We're life-defining moments. That means their Journey shouldn't or can't be easy. It has to seem so far off that most people will quit on it. I mean that's what really makes it. So great secret goal setting hack is to set small goals that seem easy to reach and then jump over them and set another one and another one and another one
An average oak tree can shed 550lbs of leaves
"You told me a statistic. For the show about an oak tree that absolutely astounded me. Well. Yes and I don't know who figured it out if it doesn't surprise me a bit now, there was no definition to this, but it was stated that a great big, old, oak tree. When defoliants, it drops approximately five hundred and fifty pounds of leaves Oh now one no wonder. My back hurts when I write. Exactly right exactly. Right mark and it's one of those things. especially when they think of coke, I like to use oak as a mulching type of leaf because when when they dry and full. They they stay cupped up they stay arched up they don't they don't. Shall I say meltdown like many other tree leaves do and this gives me A. Factor. when I when I put him over a plants roots and so on where the air can move through its slows the freezing and thawing. But at the same time, they don't become a wet mess because well, for example, a wet mess having used leaves under mums can kill them over the course than later because they don't like wet feet anytime of year. So it's just one of those things What do you think a big old oak tree you could stay under no danger but in total, it'll drop five hundred pounds of leaves now. I watched something happened one time that is related to this. starlings landed in great big old tree as it is, and I mean a whole bunch of I was sitting where I was hunting and I sitting very still and I could watch this they all descended on this tree which didn't i. I couldn't see much difference. Then then something spooked them. And they all flew off at one time and and the limbs in that tree raised by A. To twelve inches from from the release of the load, the birds sitting in the tree and. That's that's just the darndest thing. But in this case, it's OK leaves. It is something that an engineer of somebody Maybe they needed to have more to do that day. But at the same time, it's interesting to think that there is that much weight of just leaf in a tree.
"Hello. My Friends Chris here. Welcome to another episode of UNSCRIPTED. GotTa ask you this are you a rule worshiper more a rule breaker? Now. Sometimes rules are good things, right Anytime you live in a society and you have more than one person in a room, you to have some agreements agreements about how you're going to behave so that you're consistent with principles of fairness, equality goodness and kindness, and all that sort of stuff. But sometimes rules are created for to less than noble reasons at least that I can think of number one is an abundance of caution. Never to is control. The stock about the first one. When they build ladders. The tell you that the maximum load is some number two hundred pounds. But the latter is actually rated for three times that weight or more. Why An abundance of caution. The chances that the latter will break failed under a two hundred pound load is so statistically small that the people who make it feel protected from liability. Worth the latter actually breaks testing two hundred and fifty pounds. Two hundred I mean, the average consumer will be like well, I'm to twenty. Is it really that big of a difference in getting really close to that failure point and as we all know? Doesn't matter warnings you put on something. You. Get on a ladder and the latter breaks somewhere. Somehow there's going to be a lawsuit. So when I think of rules that we should invalidate. It tends to be the ones that are created out of an abundance of caution. We have to be careful. But every now, and again, we have some flexibility. We can been twist some of those rules. I don't mean safety rules. But I mean some of the customs and procedures that we cling to because we believe that we must we never asked the question how come. As, people were not terribly good at questioning authority. Are We? But as a bad ass, we need to get. Good added now, the rule that I want you to consider breaking. His any rule that is created and enforced out of a sense of control. See Right now we're experiencing a culture of more and more work from home and that means more and more autonomy, and one of the things you need to understand is that people who are only comfortable if they can control other people. Are Not going to be very comfortable with that. So they start finding ways to justify for example. Monitoring behavior insisting that people be on camera or are punching time clocks every five minutes or twenty minutes to make sure that they're doing what they're supposed to be doing. Rather than trusting teams and individuals to do the job that they're paid to do. And here's the truth. Tell me if you agree raise your hand. The more you try to enforce those rules, the more controls that you put in place. The harder sneaky ones will work to circumvent those rules. A way you're creating more of your own waste, but the real reason for me. To resist and Ben. Those rules. Simply because I don't agree with them. If you want to manage work. That's one thing. But if you want to manage people that's different. If you think you need to control where people said when they show up. What they touch and win who they talk to where they go. Then you're wrong. If nothing else you just you don't trust people. You assume the worst and everybody when you assume the worst in everybody but you failed to Crete and engaged happy culture you've no one to blame but yourself I go so far as to see your foolish for expecting anything other than a culture of mistrust unhappiness and I can't wait till I find another job. So I can get out of this thing can place. If, you're a manager you need to control and monitor people that badly you should be trying to figure out what's wrong with you. Because you can't own anybody, you can't control. You can't dictate people. Kiko around reading people, social media trying to break into their personal accounts, dig into their personal lives in catch them doing something wrong. You're not the government.

To breach people's private boundaries so that you could have more info and companies got along just fine. We Still Bill Trains and grew in shipped food and ran restaurants and. Everything that needed to get done got done. I've been going heavy on rules around people the social. Agreements. The employer employee relationship it really breaking rules applies to everything. If you're writing code because this is the way the textbook says you have to you might be missing an opportunity to innovate. To break through a performance barrier to create a template that could save time and money. We're just to make the act of developing stuff more freeing more fun. Listening to all this sounds like Voodoo to you. The ramblings of a madman let me tell you this. Name. One person who invented something that you like?

"fifty pounds" Discussed on 860AM The Answer
"Hundred fifty pounds that's hundred fifty times fifteen is about twenty two hundred calories also prioritizing seizing prioritizing probe protein slowdown David about one gram of protein per pound of body weight is so if you're wanting to build muscle of that Sir a good rule of thumb and then fill in your fats at least twenty percent of your calories should come from friendly fats not the frankincense because that maintains your hormone levels and make sure those those fats are things like nuts and seeds and avocados and salmon sunflower or pumpkin seeds coconut and all of the scores and then diversifying the carbs you eat in the Daytona detail the comp you want to eat complex or complicated carbohydrates not the refined version snow white carbs rice pasta bread go for the whole grains like quinoa and you'll get more both protein and carbohydrates are right okay here's a study they found that exercising regularly could have an anti aging effect on the body this was just this week in the news last week how will we know not for decades if not centuries serving this these findings are published in the journal nature metabolism and they stated that I quote it could one day potentially lead to a pill that works as a substitute for exercise is right about the album has reading this study doctor Thomas Randall at Stanford school of medicine said we found that regular exercise restores youthful destitution repair because they conducted that study showing that tissue regeneration decreases with age and the result of declining function in adult stem cells of course that's one thing that exercise stimulates what are the benefits of course which I don't have time to cover but the last line of the report it's a telling doctor Rando basically suggested that if we can develop a drug that mimics the benefits of exercise it's we wouldn't have to exercise three month doc there will never be a pill that totally replaces that a multitude of benefits that exercise if you all right let's see were running a couple minutes behind it.
Start Where You Are
"Thanks for tuning in today. So once again I'm going to be reading from the gym covered in the book. That I wrote if. You're interested in getting a free copy of that. Just go to Jim. MANUAL DOT COM. This is chapter three. This is a really short one, so it's GonNa. Be a quick one today. It's called. Start where you are. Start small within your ability and grow in strength. You can only do that of which you are capable. It is undoubtedly more than you imagine at the moment, but you cannot act beyond what you imagine is possible. So except where you believe yourself to be an start there. If you can only lift fifty pounds for ten Reps. That's what you lift. You can't lift more than you can lift. But Bhai training your mind and conditioning your body consistently over time you will build the capacity to lift more than fifty pounds for ten Reps. With steady effort. And fate permitting, you will become stronger. So. That is a quick one today. Starting is something that we do every step of the way. Sure we've all heard the proper journey. One Thousand Miles begins with a single step. The thing is that as soon as you take that step? You're at the beginning of the new journey, although it's one step short. Three four or five days from now you're at a new starting point in his the new start of the journey, and whatever distance that is that starts with a single step as well. So it doesn't matter how far along you are in your journey. You're always looking at that new starting point and you always have to start where you are. Always going to be simple, obvious direct action, you can take to move again that one step forward in the direction that you want to travel. Sometimes, what people do is they are in that starting position. They're looking at where they are. They're looking at where they need to be. And they start to imagine obstacles they start to imagine. Hurdles? They start to imagine opportunities. Even they start to basically take that journey. But entirely mentally without actually doing anything physically. The challenge is to plan. But then to act. Starting where you are means. You have to actually do something physically. It's one thing to get all your ducks in a row in to. Sit there and think of I need to do this in I need to do that and this is where I'm going to do this. The thing is. Our plans are never going to work out the way we have planned. That engagement with reality is always going to change the circumstances, and then the plan goes out the window. I don't remember who said it, but basically. A plan is useless. Is the way that this I think it was? The president may be general, but anyway the saying goes. A plan is useless. But planning is indispensable. And it's just putting ourselves mentally into that state of here. I go. The important thing is to actually take that step. Starting where we are means that we will grow in strength I, like to say improve as you move. Asimov not improved before you move. That's what a lot of people myself included I'm working on this all the time. We tried to think ourselves to a position. That's even further along than we are. I have thought myself out of many a grand plan because I was trying to think three steps four steps fifty in steps ahead, instead of just dealing with what is right in front of me. The great thing of physical exercise is just like I read to you right at the beginning of the chapter. You can't lift more than you can lift. It is a hard concrete reality that we deal with. When we're dealing with their own body with the resistance that we're trying to move whether term, body, weight or A barbell or dumbbell kettle whatever it is. We can't move more than we can move. The challenges to take that mentality. INTO ACCEPT IT in other areas of our lives. So if you're thinking about increasing your income. What can you do right now? You have to start where you are nowhere. You're nowhere you're going.
Metabolism, Appetite, and Mindset
"I'm here with Sammy Burner. Who's a certified aromatherapist and health and lifestyle coach? Whose goal is to help create balance in people's lives, so they can feel as happy and healthy as possible. Her Passion for health and wellness is driven by her own past struggles with weight, anxiety, panic, disorder, and Insomnia Sammy. Welcome to the show is so glad to have you here. Thank you I'm excited to be here. Just based on your bio. It sounds like you have had quite a vulnerable. Vulnerable Past, and so thank you so much first and foremost for coming in just being so in sharing with us. I mean it's not easy to talk about this stuff. It's not but for listeners it so helpful to realize that you're not alone. And I've learned that from other people sharing their stories. It's been super helpful for me, so figure I, might as well share mine and hope I can help a few people nia absolutely well. Let's hear your story was starting with. How much weight have you lost in? What was that like for you? Yes, so this saul started lull I mean it's been my whole life, but I started this whole transformation about three years ago now and I had weighed like event I gained. Probably fifty pounds heavier than I. Am right now and I was completely unhappy in job that was toxic to me and just realized that something needed to change some family history came into effect, and I realized that you know I need to get my health under control, and I wanNA stop feeling like crap. I'm sick of it, and I decided to leave my job, and once I did that I mean a huge weight was lifted off me and I realized that I can do more I can find a new job I can take my own path. And jumped into some lifestyle changes I started just with a goal of losing I think it was five pounds at the beginning and was like this is never going to happen, but I'm going to set it. I'm going to try it. And I did a thirty day cleanse and had lost like fifteen. He's like Oh. Yeah, I think more of this can happen so. I kept changing diet more and more into a plant based Diet and have found that that's what my body thrives on. Can I feel more energized I sleep better. Digestion is regular and just mentally I am in so much of a better place I. Mean I still struggle with things -iety depression here and there, but the way I handle. It is completely did a couple years ago. So even just changes in Diet has been huge, and once I started losing weight I was like I can keep losing weight like a clearly have weight to lose, and can be so much healthier so I was tracking working with Dr on blood tests, and like even things like my cholesterol had changed significantly so huge transformation, and over like six months I had lost fifty pounds. and was feeling great so like I need to keep it this way because this is. This is where I feel good. This is my sweet spot. Wow, fifty pounds in sixty days. Did you say six five six months? Yeah, fifty pounds in six months. That is a lot that's congratulations into lot of struggle. Well, there's so many amazing takeaways from the story that you just shared and one that I took away. That I'm constantly reminding myself of reminding my listeners of is, don't try to bite off the whole chunk. Right at I just take. Some bites little baby steps to get. You started because you know. Had you started your journey outgoing? Will you okay I'M GONNA LOSE FIFTY POUNDS? You know that that is such a hit hard mentality to get into, but to start a journey off going. You know what I'm just GONNA lose five pounds. And once you achieve that little bit of success. It opens up these doorways. It opens up something in your brain. That allows you to say. Wow, I'm capable of that. What else am I capable of yeah I guarantee? If I had a goal of fifty pounds, I wouldn't have lost anything. It was all I need to start small I. Need to take it little by little, and once you reach your goals you. Successful you can do it so I. found that setting smaller milestones was a way to get me to my goal. I want also just the beginning of your story. It makes me think about how many people out there legitimately wake up every day and just feel like crap you know and we are magnificent human beings. We should be living life to the fullest and I know that that's that sounds like such a cliche, and it's super hard to do. I mean we live. Live in a capitalist fast pace, competitive, harsh society, and is not always easy to say oh. Let me seize the day. Let me get the most out of my life. Let me craft my life by design, but if you're one of those people that are waking up pretty much every morning and every night when you come home and every time you sit down at work, you go. I just feel like crap. Then I, guarantee you. There are little changes that you can do. Do to change your circumstances. Yes, like Sammy. What do you think was the key to just starting in? And what were some of your favorite tools that you used along the way I think for me like at the beginning I didn't realize how crappy I felt like I knew I didn't feel good, but I didn't know how good I feel, so it's like I'm just GonNa. Try a little bit I started working with the chiropractor and we came up with a thirty day. Day Plan for Diet changes, and that was huge I started a program and stuff to it and I. I think being able to stick to. It was really good for me, but I also feel like. I was almost overly dedicated. Focusing on other things I was really focused on that weight loss when I could have been focused on I. WanNa feel better. It's not necessarily about the weight and the number on the scale. I want to be able to feel better and. That was kind of my take away. After the thirty days I was really focused on weight. And then I was like you know what there's more to this because I can feel good, I can be less anxious I mean decreased medications, anxiety and insomnia so much since I started this, and it was just huge in realizing that food can kind of control you and it can control your body, so it's amazing. How just reducing that inflammation in the Gut can help heal other

My minor oreos right now so. Comfortable, well, let's get into your story and here in ten minutes or less. Tell us how long you drank cal long it was a problem and why you decided to stop you know. My story begins at four and a half years old. My father was killed in a drunk on your car crash. and I felt different. A mealy filled different because I was gonNA have a dad I. everybody else had two cars in a garage two incomes their DADS were there soccer coaches at our liberty coaches. And so from four and a half to two nine years old when my mom remarried I definitely feel different. And my alcoholism showed up before you even took a drink. A Trish, I I I, I did three things very very well. I got great grades I was a superb athlete. And I was also bowling and I use violence as my first way to medicate my. My mom remarried when I was nine. She married an old World War Two. Vet, a guy who was there on d day, the great thing about this man was that he taught me at a Thai Thai. Shave my face, open doors or women. Really old school ways I think lost in a generation or two, and I'm grateful to them and most mostly unbreathable that he was seventeen years a sobriety. And is exactly what my mother needed and in many ways exactly what I needed, misstep misstep. but what happened was for me was puberty. Right around twelve or thirteen right his cougars kicking and I was entering my freshman year of high school. I found a solution alcohol, marijuana and cocaine I also wanted to show off in front of the girls, and so between the peer pressure of school, looking at pretty girls, and the availability of drugs and alcohol I was well on my way to find my new solution to my inner pane. Did that for a few years might pattern. High School was that I would drink on Friday. Nights drove on Saturday mornings I would again drink on Saturday nights throat on Sunday mornings in the insanity of that going on for four years straight still not hitting square in the is. when all my friends were. Being talked to about school counselor colleges to go the Trish. They were going to cal and Stanford and Michigan Texas Nice Schools in my career counselors, talking about trade schools eventually ended up at a trade school. Arizona State University. and as many no, let's Party School and my alcoholism. Just blew up from there I began doing ecstasy lots of cocaine. In I got out into the real world. And light, actually the day I graduated I got my first you is. Six months later I got arrested for assault. In a bar. A few months later. I got arrested twice in twenty four hours in Mardi Gras. And here's the sicknesses disease stretches I was. There Bourbon Street my first night and went up to speak Irish combination. This is new rules what? What can I do and he says don't piston the streets and don't fight and streets. and. So Trish I'm GonNa have you guess what two things I got arrested for? Did you see while you were fighting with somebody or I'm not that multitalented. So the happened I and less than eighteen hours later, I was led out got back on the streets. got drunk and high again it could not find a bathroom, so I decided in the streets and got caught one more time and so. I have a nice arrest record there in the lovely speakeasy of Louisiana got to be the most eventful twenty four hours I've ever heard of by the way, but I don't WanNa. Take, I. Don't want to interrupt too much. Go ahead, but no, it's crazy. I was real resentful for a lot of years that hey you guys took away my Mardi Gras. You guys, you guys room. I buzz. You know for years.

"Today we're going back to the very root of our personalities as an adult. Are there times when you feel like you cannot trust people? You have a difficult time controlling your life or a difficult time showing any kind of feeling you can't confront people you resent criticism and feel like you just don't fit in. Please listen to this show because it may not be very happy one but it will hopefully change the way you feel about yourself and later in the show you will meet a man who will teach us has some specific examples of how to begin to rebuild your self esteem. Because we're not crazy enough to think of something you can do in an hour talk show before you meet our guests though. I'd like you to listen to our audience and take themselves back to their childhood for a moment and tell you the wards day remember ripping them apart inside. Do you WANNA go. First Y- I was adapted when I was just a baby and I remember back when I was real small. My parents telling me what had really happened. My real mother was saying well. I really wanted to keep you but your adoptive mother made me give you up in. My mother was saying well. She didn't want you in the she was. GonNa put you in a home so we took you well. How does that really make you feel? How did it it made me feel awful? I mean one way. They're saying I wanted you know she didn't want you know she didn't watch. You and I was totally confused. I think now. I'm venting my anger. And my frustrations in my knowingness towards my fifteen year old and I. I love him to death but I'm always telling him he's stupid and he's not stupid he might have had some problems with divorce and things like that but he's not stupid and I'm forever Tony. You can't do anything you don't do anything right or too stupid you know and you. Did you hear the same thing when you were growing up? People tell you that no no. They didn't but I think it's my not knowing where I really belonged. But it's not right to take it out on my my oldest your self esteem. Which is what. We're talking big time for a long time. I didn't feel that I was really worth anything. I didn't feel like I was really wanted anywhere. And how that affects. Your life is what we're talking about. Thank you yes yes I was put in a foster home and the foster parents would always tell me that my mother gave me to them because I was so ugly. You know they will say you ugly as homemade sand and they'd say all those kinds of things till has I've grown up now when I do meet somebody a guy or something and he says Oh you Kinda cute and I take it as. Maybe he's joking. He's trying to really be funny or something like that. So it's really hard. It's really hard to get off. You wanted to say what yes. I didn't have really anybody telling me that I was a terrible person but my father used to always criticized my weight when I was very young. I always swear that I was born in one hundred and fifty pounds and what he would do is he would make comments. Like if I was coming down the stairs he would sing to taxi and one time. I was so proud that I lost like ten pounds. But he kept saying but Laura. You're still so big so I sabotage that Diet in three times my life I lost over one hundred pounds and I think that one little criticism and I would shoot backup the weight and then some so finally about three years ago I did have my stomach stapled in thank God. The weight stayed off. But I think that when I was growing up to is he would criticize me. I would turn around and criticize my sister and call her names and stuff like that so I know that now as an adult with my own family. I do not want to repeat that next. You'RE GONNA meet my guest three adults who say that. The abuse that they received as children is just as dangerous and just as damaging as physical or sexual abuse. My first guest wrote this letter to me. She says I was raised by a stepfather. Who never once touched me. Who turned his head when my mother insisted that I kissed him goodnight. I recall him yelling his hatred. At me labeling me the goon of the family to this day I rarely express an opinion and even then expect to be shot down. Please welcome the woman who wrote this letter. Linda Janice Napier. We're glad to have you join US Linda. My next guest says that his mother told him she didn't want him. He says that his parents never had any time for him. They called him the bad boy and to this day people still make comments like you really not as bad as you said you were. He never remembers any love just abuse now as an adult. He's having great difficulty parenting his own children without using abusive words. He says that he truly does hate his mother for the abuse. Paul mccracken my next guest says. She was called every name in the book by her mother when she was a child and teenager and criticized hundreds of times everyday. She says she will never succeed in life because she just can't believe in herself Shannon rose. We're glad to have all of you join us here on the show. But we're trying to tackle is what I think is the root of all problems in the world. I believe that lack of self esteem is what causes war because people really love themselves. Don't go out and try to fight other people either in their backyard and their community and in the world. Don't you agree? It's the root of all problems for. Yes yes so you know when I was when I was growing up I can remember many times of just being humiliated not only in front of family members. You know. During holidays my mother would send us away from the table for acting like kids. I remember seven years old. She you know dressed me up in a towel as a diaper made me take the garbage out in front of all the neighbors just to show how bad of a boy was and try to make me feel is humiliated as possible and you did. I had no choice. You know as a child you know what I know. You had no choice to where the diaper the towel diaper did feel. I mean I can't imagine what that does to assemble. It totally destroyed my image of myself now. The only type of attention I got as a child was very abusive in almost neglectful. You know attention. My parents were always busy running around to all these social activities. My mother was very verbal about the fact that children should be seen and not heard now. I was adopted too and I was told that the age of eight that I really wasn't wanted my mother was a slut and a whore and she gave me up because she didn't have any way of taking care of me and my mother kept holding it up in front of my face saying hey you were chosen. We chose you and it's like well if you chose me. What what's the point? Why you didn't want me to begin with

And they were doing things that there were just. Too big to do at least glaciers case. I think his martial arts presentation was just a little too dramatic a little too video game ish, if you will not not very realistic in some cases, his kicks were. But he was the legitimate martial artist. I'm not questioning that. But the way he presented. He probably overdramatize it a little bit too much took away its believability or credibility, number one. Number two. I think he was trying to too many things over the course of a match that was really too long. If you're going to be throwing a lot of kicks. But people don't realize in in six could probably talk a lot more about this. And I can't really speak to it. Fluently when it comes to working in the ring, but I can tell you that throwing a kick takes about seventy five percent more energy than throwing a punch or clothesline. Because it, you know, all of your your muscles in your gluts and your legs your back, your lower back, your ABS, it's a lot of energy to throw a kick and you tire out very very quickly. In a competitive environment. And I'm pretty sure the same is true here. And I think the fact that these guys were trying to throw so many kicks, especially as big as they were over the course of a nine or ten minute match was just too much. I think if they would have saved some of that martial arts, you know, trying to set it up. It'd be pick one devastating kick. I call I saw a couple three or four different sidekicks. And of course of this match. A psychic legitimately is very devastating kick. If you landed in the right area, it should have been a Finnish instead of seeing it three or four or five times or more during the course of a match and blowing yourself up in the process because you're two hundred fifty pound guy mortis was a good to forty at least.

Never now with me or not not not with my approval. Did anybody else do it? I can't suggest or confirm or deny that Jerry Taylor. Kevin Sullivan or Mike Graham or somebody else may have had a conversation with them that could have happened, but the mortis character was my project good or bad, and I would probably been aware of that. And I never had a conversation with rob about that at all. Well know, a lot of people look back at glacier and mortis and think it's a bad business decision.

My marriage is struggling because I don't put in the effort to communicate with and or date. My wife. That's not comfortable to here. It's way more comfortable to say, well, our marriage isn't going well because she doesn't love me. And she doesn't support me. And she doesn't want me around. And she doesn't date me. And she doesn't tell me I love I love you. And all the things that I need to hear. It's so much easier than turning it around on you and telling yourself that you're inadequate. But if you truly want to grow this year, that's exactly what you'll do. So guys stop lying to yourself and be truthful about it step number three. We've talked about the tactics. We've talked about telling yourself the truth. Now, it's about creating systems you have to create systems in place, and and sees me put systems in place that are going to help you focused on the tactics. You are weak, and I'm not pointing fingers as much as I'm saying you are weak. I'm saying it about myself as well when I'm lying in that bed in the morning. And I and I ate a big bullet chips and salsa the night before and I know it's cold outside. And I know I'm about to. Go get my ass kicked at the gym. It is so much easier. When the alarm goes off to hit the little snooze into say, I'll do it later, and I'm comfortable, and I got my wife here in the bed is cozy and warm. It's so much easier to do that than it is to roll over turn the alarm off put the feet on the floor, get up change brush your teeth, take a shower and then get your butt to the gym. I mean, that's more difficult. Right. We all know that that is. So if we know that the natural man, and I've talked about this concept before that the natural man is weak. He's ally. Lazy? He he's he's immediate gratification. He wants everything for nothing. If we know that because we're being truthful with ourselves, then what we can do is create systems that combat the natural man, we can put things in place that although we know have a tendency to slack off that we give ourselves the inability to slack off. Let's take the alarm clock. For example, put it in the other room. Put you know, you really want some accountability. Put it put it near the baby. So that if you don't get over there quick enough that baby wakes up and starts crying. This is a system that you can actually use in your life to ensure that you will get your butt out of bed and do the things that you've committed to doing. So it's along the lines of working out. It could be as simple as programming your gym that the night before because if you wake up in the morning, and you don't have any idea what you're gonna do. Well, it's really easy to say. I don't know. I don't know what I'm gonna program today. I don't know what workout. I don't know what I did yesterday. I don't know. I guess I'll just I'll just wait like program at tonight.

Oh cancer had a biopsy more than a year ago. It was the first skin cancer is life. He said he had lots of exposures to be in the Caribbean and here in America, and he's fair complected. And I examined him into three centimeter mass and his left ear with the era. Going away is like juicy like dying like the ear is being destroyed by this cancer. Why saw him and he had a chance to get his ear cut off with surgery. Most certainly going to cut and cut and cut leave a big deformity, and he didn't want that. He did not want a big deformity. He did not want surgery. He did not want most surgery. He did not want cutting. He did not want patching. No, he came to us, and then just a few sessions a few minutes each probably five minutes, each we were able to attack this cancer of the ear basal cell cancer, which was eroding through his ear the upper portion of his ear destroying the ear, destroying the integrity. We treated him more than a year ago. And now he's in remission. The cancer is gone, and we're able to stop the cancer and he's had some re growth of the tissues. So as ear looks very very very very good without the distortion destruction that surgery most likely would have caused and I've seen people even who've had their ears. Cut off when patient comes to mind who had his entire ear cut off the certains cut off his ear for skin cancer. They never told them about non invasive treatment. And that's what I'm talking about. So often we see patients who have radical deforming surgery, whether they're ear their noser, breast or arm or long or pancreas or. Bladder or prostate or other organs are cut off without any discussion of the options. Here we do exactly the opposite. If you wanna have surgery, join your ear cut off than all hold the power to you. But so many people do not want to have radical performing surgery.

He was diagnosed and seen by another doctor, and well, the other doctor just started him on loop run therapy, which is a kind of hormone therapy at one of the super duper pooper, big hospitals.
