Digging for the truth

"The Welcome to kiss Miss Mystery signed your host. Kit crump night been receiving a usual amount of people wondering how I tracked down the facts refined the truth when I'm working on a story. So I'm going to run down the process I'd take when investigating and urban legend and try to give a couple of examples, I i. look for anyone that actually experienced the event if that individual doesn't want to talk to me, which is usually the case. Then, I attempt to track down a witness to the event. Often when there are someone that actually experienced a paranormal event, let's say they are often embarrassed or reluctant to speak to anyone for fear, they're going to be criticized or accused of making up the entire event in some cases that involve things political or the government I can utilize the freedom of information. Act But they usually take forty five days or more to respond if the event. Is something that was reoccurring. Then I can tap into police be I reports. However, they are often. So editor redacted with black lines disliked trying to figure out a code to best understand the process will recite a couple of examples I of flying saucer that crashed at Roswell keep in mind that I'm going to leave out a lot of detail and I'm only going to explain off the flying saucer itself no alien bodies involved in this first. Trace the image of a saucer back to nineteen forty seven in horten brothers who created both a saucer and flying wing both brothers were brought back to the United States with two hundred and fifty other scientists at the end of the war in something that was called project paper clip. You may have heard of this where in the United States could the Horton's and other scientists work well, area fifty one of course at what became area fifty one. I continue this option that they would continue work on the flying wing or flying saucer I. Now Research Project Rainbow is a program using some of Tesla's science in an effort to move a battleship from point a to point b you might know this as a Philadelphia experiment. The idea was not to make anything invisible simply to move it from one place to. Another and the military failure they had made a small battleship both vanish and move from one point to another. Now, they bring that science to the Horton saucer and it becomes up flying saucer. The problem is that they can't control the Horton's flying saucer any better than the L. Ridge which was the battleship they tried it out on initially with line saucer vanishes and. then. Reappears eight hundred miles away word crashes at Roswell New Mexico this. You'd give you a very rough idea of the thinking connecting process. Keep in mind that if I have a strange unexplained event, I don't want to go to the authorities or police wrath be I with whatever because they are not equipped for accurate reports on things that go bump in the. Night that leads me to my second example a while back I got a book did explained away dozens and dozens of urban legends is a hundred percent boss. But when I opened the book to the first one, the author said, it could possibly be happening yet. I know for a fact, kidney harvesting does happen and is going on in the United States right now. The book explained away the notion that people are having their kidneys harvest it well, here's what I know. Twenty years ago I was in a restaurant with my editor. The booking question was my book body parts a story I had written about the sale of block market body parts as I was explaining the research a waitress came over and told us how some of her friends had gone to New Orleans and one of them strayed from the group in hoax. So picking up a woman for the night, they had all been. Showing an apartment and she said he would join them in the morning. If he simply ended up closing down a few bars long story short when he didn't show up, they manage to track him down to a flop house where they found him in a bathtub filled with ice less one kidney. So they get into a local hospital at an after examination. The doctor tells them that the surgery necessary to remove that kidney without killing the patient had been carried out in a surgical unit with a team of surgeons trained to. Remove a kidney. This waitress didn't know either my editor or myself. She said her friend who lost a kidney lives in Ashland Oregon but I never tried to contact him but you could see from this second example, how many urban legends are often just dismissed out of hand. The author of that book I was mentioning dismissed the kidney harvesting only consulted police in several doctors. Of course, neither of his sources would have anything to do with kidney harvesting for a lot of different reasons not to mention that harvesting any Oregon is. A federal offense

A broken system, a broken city: Beirut

"In Beirut yesterday countless people began the painful work of fixing homes devastated by a massive explosion on Tuesday. One woman who'd mlk posted a video of her mother-in-law playing the piano as others swept up broken glass. The music is bittersweet, the city is reeling. The moment of the blast no one was quite sure what had happened there was a deep bass sound for seven or eight seconds there was a rumbling. and. We thought it was a localized explosion, maybe a gas main that had blown up across the street or a car bomb in the neighborhood. Greg Carlstrom is our Middle East correspondent. I A cafe. everyone, of course, left the cafe and started making their way home and it was only on the way back down towards the three Indian towards the ports that I started to realize the scale of the damage. There was, of course, broken glass everywhere carpeting, all of the streets all at the sidewalks pass through an intersection where there were several women sitting in the median holding cloth scraps of fabric bleeding from the head they'd obviously been hit by glass. And every building that you pass by not only the windows blown out but the aluminum window frames blown off. So. You realize that this was not a localized incident, but rather something that had affected the entire city center. The blast was felt as far away as Cyprus it registered as an earthquake in Jordan. It had come from the port of Beirut or something had set off an explosion of staggering size sending up a white mushroom cloud then a vast bloom of orange smoke. Yesterday the government placed a number of court officials under house arrest and again investigation. Declared a two weeks state of emergency. Residents are still coming to grips with the shock of the blast. Felt like it went inside us like a best our soul the way. I saw something bright and I lost my hearing for few seconds. An explosion just went out. The human toll of the explosion has been catastrophic the death toll officially more than one hundred so far, and that number continues to grow as rescue workers find victims who were buried in the rubble more than five thousand people injured by the blast and many of them had to go into a hospital system that was already stretched thin. We've had a spike in corona virus cases in Lebanon over the past few weeks, some hospitals themselves were damaged by the explosion hospital Saint George Hospital across the street from where I live. was so badly damaged that it had to halt operations and when I went by the hospital, you saw patients some of them still wearing their hospital gowns with intravenous lines in their arms bloodied from flying debris and shrapnel for nurses were killed. Fifteen patients on respirators died when the machines failed the other immediate impact is according to officials in Lebanon about three hundred thousand people were left homeless by the explosion. About five percent of the population of the entire country and what do we know so far about what caused the explosion? It seems to be the result of unbelievable negligence even on the scale of the perennially negligent Lebanese government back in two thousand thirteen customs officials in Lebanon confiscated the cargo of a Russian ownership that was traveling to Mozambique. The cargo was two, thousand, seven, hundred, fifty tons of ammonium nitrate, which is highly explosive chemical that is used mostly to make either fertilizers or explosives from mining and quarrying and other industrial uses. So this material was confiscated, it was put in a warehouse at the port and for six or seven years it just south there there was some talk of maybe exporting the stuff for giving it to the army to use but this required approval from the Lebanese judiciary that approval never came you've had officials at the ports and with insecurity agencies who warned this was tantamount to keeping a giant bomb on the doorstep of the country's capital. Those warnings went unheeded and of course, tragically on Tuesday it all exploded but I mean what kind of government would ignore warnings about tons and tons and tons of explosive material just sitting in a city centre the Lebanese government would it's almost par for the course for Lebanon's political class. This is the government that for more than a decade could not agree on a budget. This is the government that for almost thirty years allowed the same central banker to run the Central Bank Lubin, and to run effectively state-sanctioned Ponzi scheme to defend the currency peg it's a country that created a political and economic model that was totally unsustainable. Invested hardly at all in basic services even in good times, Lebanon can't provide twenty four hour electricity routinely struggles to pick up the trash piles up in the streets. It is a perennially negligent government and this is of course, a catastrophic example of that but it's of a piece with the behavior of this government over the past thirty years. So this is a population economy that was suffering quite a bit even before the blast it was the country has been slipping into a profound economic crisis since October the the currency. Lebanese. Pound which for decades has been pegged to the dollar. Began to break away from that since October? It's lost about eighty percent of its value on the black market which has contributed to runaway inflation in a country that imports almost everything from food and fuel to consumer goods. So, inflation running around eighty percent right now and for food around two hundred percent prices have become astronomical this summer we've had fuel shortages that have caused blackouts in Beirut normally three hours a day stretch as long as twenty hours a day this summer and the backup generators that people rely on to provide electricity when the state cannot those are either burning out from overuse or running out of fuel just one crisis after another point. which has led to widespread poverty in the country the the official figures the government thinks around half the country is now below the poverty line that could rise as high as seventy five percent. By the end of the year, there's been a spike in petty crime driven simply desperation. There was one man who was caught on TV robbing a pharmacy for diapers another man who robbed someone at knifepoint on the streets and a once busy part of town, and then came back to apologize for doing it and said, he he needed the money to his family. So it sounds a a years long problem has gotten really quite a lot worse very recently mean why hasn't the government been able to sort of keep things from getting so much worse? The current government was installed in January meant to be a technocratic government that would tackle this economic crisis and negotiate a rescue agreement with the IMF but. Six or seven months later it's made almost no progress. The negotiations with the IMF have really stalled at this point they've had about twenty rounds of talks. But is not even really negotiating with the IMF yet it's still negotiating with itself. You have the cabinet on one side. And the parliament on the other backed up by the banking sector. which are having this very arcane dispute about the scale of the losses in Lebanon's financial sector about how bankrupt the country is effectively. And so you have this surreal situation where instead of Lebanon negotiating with the IMF Lebanon is negotiating with Lebanon. The Fund has told Lebanon that talks are not going to advance unless there's an agreement on the size of the losses or if the cabinet pushes through a few meaningful reform of capital controls, law changes to the electricity sector things like that. Neither of these things have happened and there are increasing calls for the government to step down. Do you think that's the way forward I? Mean, what do you think should be done here to to bring Lebanon back to? A functional state though the problem is if this government steps down what replaces this government and a lot of the pressure on the government right now is is coming from the traditional powerbrokers in Lebanon the sectarian X. warlords who have divvied up power in this country for decades since the end of the civil war in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, this power sharing agreement they have it was designed to keep the peace and prevent a return to conflict after the war. But it's been captured by the. Hands up power based on sect, which runs a massive patronage network The World Bank estimates that it costs the country about nine percent of its GDP each year but if it were to step down without broader changes to the country's political system in this power, sharing system would simply be replaced by the same cast of characters who have ruined the country over the past thirty years. But that power sharing system was was there to to keep the peace to prevent a return to civil war, and that was the argument for years for decades when people in Lebanon would complain about the corruption and. The negligence and the inefficiency of their government, the response would be well at least this is better than a return to the bad old days even before what happened on. Tuesday even before the explosion though that argument was beginning to lose its weights with a lot of people here you have a younger generation of Lebanese who don't have the same memory of course of the civil war that their parents or their grandparents had, and so as the country slipped further and further into crisis over the past year, people have been more willing to to break away from this system than they were before. And I think the argument that well, there could be violence if the power-sharing system was stripped away after what happened on Tuesday after half of Beirut was destroyed by the incompetence of this government I think that argument is not going to carry with a lot of people.

This is probably not the last pandemic that will ever go through. Talk about help for Awhile Joe royle knock on wood. But I do want to say that for so many in the community right now you are the voice. Of Reason, you are the voice of really helping people understand what's real what we don't know because there's a lot of what we don't now and you've run so much peace to so many families.

How're you doing during these times? You know I mean it's crazy times everybody. My son and daughter for those of you who follow me they actually contracted co bid on. I mean really it was about a week after we wanted to quarantine. So we all went to quarantine from school Friday, the thirteenth, and then maybe seven to ten days later my daughter got sick cough fever search you have a little trouble breathing. Thought well, this can't be Kovic she's been in quarantine right? We haven't been in contact anybody in as far as I knew there was nobody at school who had had covid Right, around that time when quarantine was happening, I had a little bit of a sore throat and a headache nothing major but I did my usual kind of functional. Medicine Integrative Medicine dosing that I do and I get sick and I teach families. My husband had something similar but we we were fine then a week after Kenzi got sick she recovered ten days fever cough you know not feeling well little bit alot ish tonight a similar. She got maybe about ninety four, ninety, five percents but that's literally on Day ten. It was like the switch flipped she she bounced back and she was completely like nothing ever happened. A few days later, my son starts to get a fever and I'm like, oh no, it's going on here. Right at the time. Remember early in the days of the pandemic testing was really not available I mean that available. Right so but then even more. So I managed to get a swab and do swab my child, which is not fun experience and the Senate to quest four days later it came back negative. Okay. Maybe she caught something. Weird, right Then when Bodey start to get, he had a fever and stomach ache his tummy was hurting him so much that was his symptom and that in the fever little bit a sore throat and so I thought and even back then the early days remember we we know so much more about covid nineteen than we did back in.

He had auditory visual hallucinations. He heard voices in his room. He would see the wall moving in and out and kind of scary people in front of him. Here's H-. You really mean people saying I mean he he said he was embarrassed to tell but really bad words right? Like you know words you wouldn't use in polite conversation and so and then he got a rash on his face and pink guys, right Thank goodness back. Then the really weren't reports of this Kawasaki Like Disease Right. Multi-system. Inflammatory Syndrome associate with children. Because if I had known about this phenomena I think I would even more freaked out than I already was right but his oxygen levels dropping he did go to about eighty eight percent at which time I did bring him to the ER.

Are You Putting on Enough Sunscreen?

Are You Putting on Enough Sunscreen?

"As I record this, it is August which here in the northern hemisphere means hours of outdoor time under the blazing summer Sun. But even though many of us do wear sunscreen to help prevent sunburn skin cancer and the kind of skin damage that the beauty industry calls premature aging recent researches found that we're not applying that sunscreen is thickly as we should hang its effectiveness by about forty percent. Sunscreen is rated for Sun Protection factor or SPF WITH SPF thirty able to block ninety, seven percent of ultraviolet rays, the higher, the SPF, the greater the protection although even SPF one hundred doesn't block one hundred percent of UV light. The problem according to this recent research out of University College. London is that few of US US enough sunscreen to enjoy those high levels of protection. Lead author entity young explained to US via email that to calculate ratings in the lab. Sunscreen is applied thickness of two milligrams of product per each square centimeter of skin. He said, an average woman has about one point, seven square meters or eighteen point three square feet of skin for a whole body sunscreen she will need about thirty three grams or one point. One fluid ounces with three whole body applications a day that's about one hundred grams or three point four fluid ounces. For reference, a fluid ounces roughly equivalent to a shot glass of sunscreen and a large tube of sunscreen holds eight fluid ounces of product. So a person spending a full day in the Sun should use about half a tube by themself. Are you using that much sunscreen probably not young and his colleagues estimate that our real life application of Sunscreen is closer to about point seven five milligrams per square centimeter at less than forty percent of the recommended thickness as a result or not getting anything close to the ninety seven percent protection promised on a bottle of SPF. Thirty. The good news from young study is that you can get away with using less product with SPF of fifty or higher. They found that even the real world application rate of point seven, five milligrams of sunscreen per square centimeter if using SPF, fifty provided considerable DNA protection compared to untreated skin. So does that mean that you should run out and buy the most expensive SPF one hundred or spread your regular SPF thirty as thick as cream cheese on a BAGEL. We also spoke with Ivy Lee a board certified dermatologist based in Pasadena California who explained that you could. But that the best daily Sun Protection Strategy is to keep it realistic. Lee, said I tell my patients to go for the highest SPF possible. That feels good on the skin for daily use. How do you know you're really applying two milligrams per square centimeter? No one knows we don't want to induce anxiety over this we want to build healthy habits. Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States and exposure to ultra-violet or UV. Light is a risk factor for all types of cancer including melanoma more than nine thousand, three, hundred Americans die for melanoma every year. UNPROTECTED EXPOSURE TO UV light damages the DNA and skin cells leaving them more susceptible to skin cancer DNA damage can result from either a few severe sunburns or a lifetime of cumulative sun exposure. Incredibly the American, Academy of Dermatology reports that getting just five or more blistering sunburns between the ages of fifteen and twenty will increase your overall melanoma risk by percents. and. Lee says that although skin cancer is less prevalent in people of color exposure to UV, light can also cause premature aging they sunscreen use will slow the appearance of wrinkles and age spots for all skin tones. Healthy sun-protection habits include avoiding sun exposure during the peak between ten am to two PM wearing a wide brimmed hat and sunglasses went outside and full sun, and of course, applying sunscreen on all exposed skin even in overcast conditions. For full coverage, Lee recommends starting the day with a cream or lotion type sunscreen preferably fifteen to thirty minutes before you step outside. Instead of measuring out of full shot glass of product, Lee tells her clients to think of applying sunscreen like a massage or can fully into the skin without missing a spot since body sizes vary and product spread. Differently there's no preset amount that works for everyone. Lease suggests reserving spray or powder type sunscreen for fast reapplication on the go the ideal is to reapply every two hours but lease as a more realistic plan is to reapply around lunchtime if you're going to be out all day. If you're heading out on water sanders snow more frequent applications are required because UV rays reflect off of those surfaces. According to Lee it's a myth that you can't burn the palms of your hands or the soles of your feet. Also, tablets and other hand held devices reflect UV light too. So pick a shady spot if you're going to spend some time in the sun scrolling.

7 Habits of Successful People That Will Make You Feel Unstoppable in 2020 by Brian Tracy

"Seven. Habits of successful people Dow Make You feel unstoppable and twenty twenty by Brian Tracy of Brian. Tracy DOT COM. Many. People wonder how they can become highly successful not realizing that they hold within them everything they need to achieve all of the success they desire. Successful. People are where they are today because of their habits habits determined ninety five percent over prisons behavior everything that you are today and everything that you will ever accomplish is determined by the quality of the habits that you form. By creating good habits and adopting positive behavior, you too can become successful and live a prosperous life. These seven success habits are good predictors of greatness. For thousands of years in human life has been studied by great thinkers and philosophers. I've personally studied the subject for more than thirty years would I found is that the very best people have developed good habits I've identified seven valuable habits you need to develop if you want to perform at your very maximum in everything you do. Number one their goal oriented. The. FIRST HABIT IS BECOME goal oriented. You need to be habitual goal setter and dedicate yourself to working from clear written goals. Every day of your life forming daily habits. All highly successful people are intensely goal oriented. They know exactly what they want to have it written down they have written plans to accomplish it and they both review and work on their plans. As a daily routine. I suggest you learn how to use the eighty twenty rule to officially work toward achieving your goals. Number two their results driven. The second habit of highly successful people is being results driven. This is made up of two practices. The first practice is the practice of continuously learning so that you become better at what you do. The second practice is that of time management, this means setting very clear priorities on what you do and then concentrating single-mindedly on the most valuable use of your time. All. Really successful people are intensely result oriented. Number three, they are action oriented. The third major habit you need to develop is that of continually taking action. This is really the most important habit for material. Success is the ability to get on with the job and get it done fast is your ability to develop and maintain a sense of urgency and a bias for Action Fast Tempo in whatever you do is essential to your success. He need to overcome procrastination push aside your fears and launch one hundred percent toward the achievement of your most important goals. The combination of goal orientation result orientation, and Oriental in. Themselves will virtually assure great success. I highly suggest you learn to use smart goals to list achievable targets that you can measure and track. Number Four. There people oriented. The fourth having you need is people. is where you put relationships in the center of your life. This is your decision to cultivate within yourself the habits of patience, kindness, compassion, and understanding virtually all of your happiness in life will come from your ability to get along well with other people. The good news is that you can become a wonderful human being in your relationships with others when you decide to as Aristotle said, the only way that you can learn any habit is by practicing it on a regular basis. The more you practice being a truly excellent person in your relationships with others the more you will internalize those qualities actually become that person. Focusing on being more pleasant with the people in your life is a great technique to promote a positive thinking lifestyle. Number five, they are health conscious. The Fifth Abbot highly successful people develop is health consciousness. This means that you must studiously watch your diet and always eat the right in the right portions you must exercise on a regular basis, continue using every muscle in joint of your body to keep it limber and fit. Finally only, you must have good habits of rest and recreation though unable you in combination with Diet and exercise to live out your years in a healthy state. Remember your health is the most important single thing you have, and it is completely subject to the habit you developed with regard to the way you live. Number. Six, they are honest. The. Six habit is out of honesty and integrity. In the final analysis that character develop as he goes through life is more important than virtually anything else honesty means that you practice the reality principle in everything you do your completely objective with yourself and with the world around you

Decentralized Storage: The Final Frontier, w/ Bluzelle CEO & founder, Pavel Bains

"Is Blue Zell and how is it different from other blockchain's? is a decentralized database. It's a delegated pufus state network and what we found was how came about was when we started a couple of years ago, we're doing projects for banks and insurers and trying to do the whole thing of enterprise blockchain and. Try to bring that in and saying, Hey, this is where the space is where it's going, and while we're doing some of those projects. We realized that okay. We do. For example, today attorney management system for three banks in Singapore. Great used know. But then all the data and certain parts of it we had to actually store in a centralized database. Then we had done in other one for insurance. Travel Insurance for one of the bigger insurance companies in Asia and that one same thing wait part of this information and what's happening store and centralised database, and we realize that you're not getting a full decentralized stack. It's only partial, and then you know you start thinking about at that time everybody's trying to figure out the decentralize web all the components we. Realized that our problem been solved if he had a decentralized database behind it. And that's where we kind of. That's where it came from. We dug in more and said, okay, that's you want to complete the entire decentralize staff and that's how he basically came together and said, this is the player. This theory we're GONNA play interesting. So it was when I think of blockchain's generally I, kind of analogize them with a decentralized database. Say That about. Bitcoin. Decentralized Database which holds ledger information. And stuff like that. So. Is it maybe the the design that makes it the design of Blue Zell makes it more just as secure as Bitcoin like first office. Is it just as secure as Bitcoin and you know that kind of thing and is it just faster or is it optimized specially to do a certain purpose that you know maybe bitcoin or a theory cannot? Yeah. So it's a different use case. So when it comes to ledger transactions, you know blockchain's are great for that. Just quick information things like that. But if throwing wheel data, let's say if you're building a financial product, can you need to store user information or building a game like profile sessions inventory management? You can't really put that on the blockchain because one it would be very slow. For all that hard data behind it, and it'd be very expensive I mean look the prices of cerium now. So what you said was who build a decentralized network database descended database with nodes at strictly are for storing data we get that security that one hundred percent up time of availability is there and you get and you can store large amounts of data edit or even. Less than half the price of centralized databases. So it's a different case. So your transactions, definitely, those things at the stadiums create at bitcoin the other blockchain's you keep doing that but the hard data lakeview application and you know, let's say you're using an APP whether it's Base Camp Mail chimp facebook. All data has to sit somewhere behind it and that's you put on. US interesting. So it's almost like Blue Zell would be a direct competitor. to any of those data centers that we would see that are be owned by Amazon web servers. Right or you know we drive past the freeway and we know that there's a big data center over there. Those are centralized and owned by certain companies right? So you're saying. If a group of people all came together to. Contribute their computing power to storing in serving files to anybody who calls it then you'll compensate them or somebody will be compensating them in Blues, L. Tokens. Right. Right. So think of it as AIRBNB. We've just discovered that, hey, there's a lot of people out there with a lot of computer space on on their laptops devices, xboxes that are sometimes most of the time not used right because everything's really run on the cloud. So what we're saying is made just give extra room in your apartment. Extra space on your computer. To, US will manage it and we'll have somebody rented. So

We have the stone two thousand and nineteen women at addition Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, and we have the what's Road Distiller as double barrel, Kentucky Straight Bourbon, Whiskey, and this episode sip sudden smokes is sponsored in part by the or whiskey society to find out more about the society in their events, you can visit them at. F.. T. l.. Ws Dot. com. And we've reviewed quite a whiskies from the folks that go yellowstone over the years But what's have Justin gives a little background about them just to refresh your memory. So let's go began in nineteen, fifty eight when Paul a Lux and David. Sherman. Senior created the David Sherman Corporation as private. Label bottler. Serving the needs of distributors, wholesalers and retailers starting out with one brand in nineteen sixty have steadily grown portfolio to include vodka rum gin occurs more importantly whiskey whiskey. Latin. Clean Windows. Get. In two thousand, six, they changed their name to Lex goes attributed to the founder pollock's. The company's one hundred percent family owned to this day. A few years ago. lesko bought a fifty percent stake in the limestone branch. Still Ary last year, they completed construction of their own thirty, five million dollar distillery in Bardstown. Kentucky. Named the Lux road distillery, it's really pretty distillery of your embarked. Sounded should. Definitely. A swing by I gotta try the. I. Haven't been to yet. So I went there when they were building it and we got the walk around through the construction site, and then just recently I got to stop in and it's been. Probably, ear and year, plus since I was there. So it's all finished and landscape and everything really really Nice Oh. Maybe. Why don't we have Brent, tell us about the first whisky thinks the first one we're going to be trying out is the yellowstone two thousand Nineteen Limited Edition Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, this is. Yeah one, hundred, one, proof, Fifty, point, five, percent, AB, nine age stayed they they say this has got a suggested retail price around one hundred dollars for seven, hundred, fifty milliliter bottle. So Steve, beam his brother Paul? Being opened up limestone branches story in. Two. Thousand Eleven With the goal of create crafting the finest whisky in small batches with the history of is still on both sides of their family beaming Dant, the brothers are seventh generation distillers in two, thousand, fifteen, they brought the yellowstone brand back to the family. It's A, it's A. Real Alec, and a lot at that story because it's it's the exact antithesis of every big corporate distillery. Ever go to. It's a little place. The first time I went there the first I walked in and. There's a dog land next to the still who's looking at me like, what do you want? It's just so laid back. They were. You know they've expanded now considerably, but still it's You know it's it's a family run operation and it's If you're if you're up in, Kentucky definitely give swing by the tour guide is worth a visit us even. As. He's he's he is awesome. Let me tell you that guy is golden. There's very few tour guides that are really worth visit and he's one of the. Absolutely, but yeah, really cool place and they keep growing and we were up there doing barrel back. They're coming out with some really nice stuff. So. What did you say? Oh, actually. I did have a little bit information. Rumor has it that this is a blend of nine and twelve year old barrels.

Gary Bernhardt - TypeScript and Testing

"Thing that you said about the test, we verifying the behavior system is totally true if you number one have well, if you have perfect coverage to the system. And that doesn't mean just line wise coverage because executing every line isn't sufficient. It doesn't mean even path coverage path coverage means like let's say you have a function with two with a conditional with two sides and an els, and then after that on related to the second conditional with two sides, you have four paths to that function because you can take either side of the first conditional on either side of the second. So. Even covering all the paths isn't sufficient because the data might vary in weird ways that 'cause you might, for example, you never thought to test for when some arrays empty and you're indexing until you're getting an undefined out your test never tested that. So the thing about. Let's throw away the integer versus strength and just think about like you have a function that takes a supposedly takes a string. and. You didn't think about what happens if it's undefined. Well, maybe you never pass undefined that function, but maybe you pass something that was indexed out of an array to a, and if that array was emptier, didn't contain that index, you're going to get an undefined and this is like at least in dynamic languages. This is one of the most common and annoying sources of bugs is whatever kind of knowles your language has and they show up. Yeah Yeah. Exactly. And these languages tend to have very lax with with somewhat an exception of Python. They have very lax handling of knowles. So like indexing ray with an unexpected index gives you all in undefined, her nail or whatever. It's called same thing with Hashes objects. So. One of the big benefits of a static type system. As you can say, this function takes a string and under no conditions will allow you to pass an undefined into their. except. Took mentioned, the type script was designed under severe constraints. Actually, type script does have this problem because of the type of indexing array is the type of the array. It is not union with undefined. So. This is not the greatest example, but there are lots of sort of other situations like this objects are a better example. Cause type stripped will prevent you from. Accessing a property that doesn't exist on an object and getting an unexpected undefined, and then passing that down into a function that never expected the undefined, all of that kind of weird. Stuff. This kind of weird bugs that can only occur due to run time. Data. A lot of them go away, not all of them and you know the language determines how many if you're programming Idris like really, you get pretty close to all them going away if you programming in type script like. It probably gets you eighty percent of the way towards preventing those kinds of things. But. This stuff comes up constantly with. A. So that was all. That's all of that was supposing perfect test coverage. You still have these problems that are based on run time data. They're not based on the structure of the code you wrote, would that mean that you don't actually have perfect test coverage though like that is the implication. So. I. Don't want to write I, don't want to one. Hundred Percent Path Coverage, I? Don't even want achieve one hundred percent line coverage. So an execute programs code base. The ratio of test code to should've written the actual number down, but it's something like maybe four to one production code test code is. That is that feels like a lot more production code to TESCO than what I remember seeing like the destroyer software screen casts and stuff. Like Ruby and rails stuff. Yeah, and it's a lot. It's a lot more production to test than in the destroy all software code base as well because in Ruby and like I have to. Constantly. Protect myself from from mistakes. and. With type script and play. I can strategically test. Things at just the right place. So like EXCO program has this core bit of code that handles year kind of progression through a course and the lessons and so on. That's really critical and quite complex code. All of that is like just paranoid testing around because if any of that ever goes wrong, it's going to get baked into the database and it's you know it's GonNa be there forever. But for example, our reactor components. Strictly speaking we have zero tests around the entire react. And that's there are a few points that are actually tested, but they're kind of factored out like reducer, kind of stuff like the actual. Component testing. But just like there's some areas of logic that I'd extract, it emerged test for because it was easier to write the code if I had tests while I was writing it sorta thing. Yep, exactly. and that's not to say that the front is never tested because we have some Cyprus tests drive a browser so. Are, tests actually step through every single lesson in the system just to make sure that nothing blows up, but that's more of a just a giant smoke test. So. And it requires no incremental work when I write new content or new components, just kind of works for free. So. By, having type script in place, not having to worry about all the wiring of components I can focus on. Very, complex tight fine grain tests for the core logic. Of the system and I can have this nice high level test runs through and make sure nothing is totally broken, but I don't have to write a whole lot of just really boring like this component. When it this, it renders you know with this class or whatever I. Don't do any of that stuff and. I. Think it's worked really well, I have no regrets about about switching type script for that purpose because the overhead is quite small when programming but the test over the saved as massive, I mean, we're talking about. I wrote a blog post with numbers in it, but I think it was something like the system would be two point, five times as many lines of code. If I had done standard, what was it two to one test to code ratio?

Hypothyroidism and adrenal fatigue + leaky gut trifecta with Dr. Becky Campbell

"On today's episode. We're going to be digging deep into some nutrition science about thyroid disease specifically about hypothyroidism the adrenals leaky gut, and it's going to be with Dr Becky Campbell. So surprise, this episode is actually an old episode that aired almost two years ago. So a lot of you new listeners around here. Hey, love Ya probably haven't heard this one yet, and it is one of my favorites that I have done plus it's so packed with information that I figured it's time to bring this one up again. So Dr Becky Campbell is our guest today and she is a functional medicine practitioner who is sharing her personal health journey through sickness with conventional medicine to finally finding health with functional medicine. So we are diving into the causes of thyroid dysfunction and why we need to go so much more beyond food for true healing from stress management to heal healing gut and liver issues. Other hormonal imbalances addressing heavy metal toxicity or parasites analyst goes onto a lot of other things to disclaimer here Dr Campbell is talking about a specific. Dietary. Protocol four thyroid disease. This is one of those circumstances where it may be helpful to remove certain foods for healing if you have a diagnosis of thyroid disease or hypothyroid or hypothyroid however, if you have any history of disordered eating chronic dieting morality around foods getting stuck in the good versus bad yes I know who's or an eating disorder and a diagnosis like thyroid disease, you should one hundred percent pretty please definitely work with a practitioner who specializes in thyroid conditions and a non died approach to healing to make. Sure, you don't fall back into old patterns getting into the details a little bit. We're going to talk about the multiple functions of the thyroid gland, which goes way beyond metabolism the difference between Hypo hyperthyroidism and Hashimoto's the connection between leaky gut thyroid issues, low stomach acid, and adrenal fatigue, plus the most important foods and nutrients to include to support thyroid health and why should we be eating gorgeous genyk officials if we have thyroid issues and then what labs to ask your doctor for if you suspect, you have fiery issues. I would love for you to start by talking about your personal health journey and introduce yourself and how you got where you are today. So while I got to learning about functional medicine like most functional medicine practitioners I think by being sick myself. And so I, you know I never really felt great. You know even as a kid I never felt i. think is good as the other kids around me did but when I was in my early twenties I was in college I felt really bad and this was different than my normal not feeling great I knew something was wrong and no one really had any answers for man went to so many doctors and you know, of course, they directed me to five different doctors depending on which body part on. and. You know they just ran such limited labs or they were looking for like pathologically. So you know for my stomach loading, they would do like a dusk opinion and say, Oh, you're fine. You know or they'll do a colonoscopy for some people and if there's no. Raging issue there than then you're fine. So. I kind of went on like that for a while and just started getting worse than I I was increasing my exercise and I was actually noticing that was making me gain more weight which have kind of talked about on some articles and stuff that I've done with the relation to the cortisol issues in weight gain. but. Just getting really frustrated feeling kind of hopeless and like no one was listening to me and then I found functional medicine and I was living in Atlanta at the time and I found this big center that did all they Davis Functional Medicine and I it was amazing. I was so happy you know I had I think like an hour consultation the first time which was crazy 'cause no game different and yeah. Yeah. So you know they found I had a issue and they did that by doing much more thorough lab testing than. than. They were doing in the conventional medicine model plus they were using different lab ranges, which is such a big part of this. and. Then not only did they find out that I had fired issue but they started looking for what was causing it or what was contributing to May symptoms. So after working with functional, Medicine Practitioner for was you know a few months I mean right away I started to feel better but it took about a year and then even as a practitioner I've learned more things and tested myself rather things and found there was other things I was struggling with but you know overall the point being is that there was. You know the conventional medical model, which was me looking fine to them, and then the functional medicine model, which is I found all of these issues and had a work on them right exactly

Our Season Finale Starring the Founders of She Podcasts and Skyes husband Don

"Hello and welcome to inside podcasting the show in which creators discussed their craft. I'm your host. Sky. Pillsbury. This is a post show episode, but we're doing things just a little differently today I all chat with Elsie Escobar and Jessica Kupperman about last week's interview with sixteen nineteen producers, a Diese Egan and Anti Brown Jessica and Elsie our the founders of she podcasts a community that helps women and non binary podcasters through every step of their podcast journey. The pair met online years ago and joined forces to create a free facebook group that now has over seventeen thousand members. Jessica Elsie also hosts a really fun podcast called she podcasts in which they talk about all things podcasts, and they are the founders of she podcast live an in person conference I attended their inaugural event last year and it was wonderful. Their next event is scheduled for next. October. that's October of twenty twenty. One For the second half of our show due to popular demand I am bringing back my husband. We will take a look back at the season. I hope you enjoy today's conversations and I'll be back at the end to wrap things up. I am thrilled today to have with me, Elsie Escobar and Jessica Cup for men who are the founders of she podcasts. They are also the women I consider to be my podcast Mama's. Even. Though I am almost one hundred percent sure that I'm over than them both. So with that welcome Jessica and Elsie, I'm so happy to have you here. Think. You yes. All right guys you are my guest hosts and I'm your subject and I'm ready for you go. Just you have the questions I will chip in. Okay. There are so many shows and episodes right now in podcasting about race and racial relations. So why did sixteen nineteen speak to you specifically? Honestly it made me feel angry that I had not Known so much of what was talked about in this podcast. Hadn't learned any of it in school and I went to a very good public school and yet I felt like everything I was hearing felt new to me obviously I knew basic facts about Abraham Lincoln and the civil war and things like that. But I did not understand any of the nuance and I certainly did not understand how happened what felt like so long ago right it did sorta feel to me like ancient history did not understand how connected it was to our current world. For example, healthcare I had no idea that I mean our healthcare's. Louis it was mind blowing like the fact that we have the worst healthcare system of any developed nation and the fact that that can be traced. So clearly back to the fact that we did not want to allow black enslaved people or even black UNIN slaved people to have equal healthcare. You know the fact that we can trace that back is. Rushing and tragic, and it's tragic for all of us you know and those kinds of realizations just felt so jarring and I had a real emotional reaction to listening to the podcast both because I just felt so much more empathetic to people who are living the black experience in the US but also it was also emotional because I felt cheated of that knowledge and so the reason why I wanted to talk to the people and I still feel so incredibly fortunate that I was able to get them on the show and bring shine. Any kind of light on that for other people was incredibly rewarding and that's why I wanted to have him on on the show they. It's funny. I've thought about this like they talk in the episode about how they want to lift up Nicole's work and I felt that in talking to them, I was hoping to lift up their work and Nicole's work. You know sort of getting even more Meta here but just wanting people to recognize and see this podcast and maybe have the same kind of transformative experience listening to it that I did.

Theres No Such Thing As A Normal Period With Midol Partner Dr. Alyssa Dweck

"Dr Welcome to the how and keeps so much for having me. Yeah. Thank you so much. Thanks for being with us, do you WanNa talk about the all important topic of periods in quarantine and our cycles how they might have been affected by? Recent events in the ensuing stress from. and then also you know I know quite a few people who an alien you definitely do to who have thought about you know conceiving or how this might affect future plan for children in quarantine. So and just kind of in this new phase wherein so we love to talk also about you know fertility and you know how to deal with that with that sort of thing you know and knowing if it's a how habitual issue or maybe like a hormonal show. So we have lots to talk about today. Great well, this is my favorite subject and frankly I am seeing people in my office day in day out with changes in their cycles because of changes in their general stress and routines that have come along with quarantine, and thankfully here in the New York area we are. Emerging from that. So we'll see what happens with menstrual cycles after that time and I'm sure also it's like people changing who they're living with two and like changing up their routine in that respect. So I know I remember from camp at least my cycle changed with all the girls in my bunk. So I'm sure that that also affected things one hundred percent. So living in a different arrangement and environment can absolutely change a cycle. We also know that stress like severe stress I don't mean stress like Oh I have an exam tomorrow my period's going. To be different but significant stress like a loss or going to college, and I would have to say that living through a pandemic that none of us has ever experienced in our lifetimes should surely qualify as stress of that level. The other thing that occurs during this time is that our dining habits are changing our exercise habits are changing our stress levels are off the chart. So things are different and remember where we are. We are what we eat and we are what we do in terms of activity saw periods are going to change as well. So in terms of like things that people might have experienced changes they might have noticed that they might have been worried about or maybe they were. You know just sort of like winging it because it was hard to see doctors for awhile. What are some some symptoms are changes that people could have experienced or that you have seen? So, this is my anecdotal reports because we're now seeing people back in the office again. But prior to that, we were seeing patients via telehealth, which is a whole nother subject but you know we could really ascertain a menstrual habits during those visits as well. Women are noticing skipped periods they're noticing their periods or shorter or longer heavier or lighter, or just irregular for what they are used to. So bottom line is they're just not the same as what was normal for them before this level of stress the other thing are some of the PMS type symptoms that people are experiencing are different. And this is one I'd like to suggest really has an awful lot to do with. Diet and exercise because granted you know when you move home from living on your autumn in hat and let's say a now you're living in your parents basement waiting for since the clear on the health front, your diet is going to be different. You may be eating more comfort foods which have more salt or more sugar or just more volume and calories your exercise habits change because the gyms are closed. So these things all have an impact on your period and the symptoms that you have before he endured. So what so what about like symptoms like psychological symptoms 'cause I know I felt that more extremely in quarantine just when I know that I'm nearing the end of my birth control pack like I feel like just like just just tie like brain fog basically. Sadder. Is. That is that could that be due to this time oh? No question look I mean some people with underlying depression or anxiety has noticed a heightening of their symptoms, and hopefully they are still receiving the necessary assistance with therapy or mindfulness exercise or medication. But I think people who never even haven't underlining a mental health concern are dealing with stress levels that we've never known before but I really equate this to stress that may go on in in other instances for example, when young women go after college for the first time and hopefully that will still be. The case now, this fall as we're coming up on it, women lose their periods because of stress because of a change in their habits, and also because of what you brought up, which were different roommates and stuff like that other huge stressors that do this would be like a significant loss or some sort of excessive weight loss or diet change. Those things can also change the menstrual cycle.

Urgency Behind Nevada's New Bill That Expands Mail-in Voting

"News the Nevada Senate approved a bill Sunday to implement a majority mail in election in November. In their argument Senate Democrats asserted that the measure assembly bill four was needed due to concerns over the Chinese corona virus they cited long lines at the pulse. And close contact with others. The measure which was passed with a thirteen eight vote was not supported by any of the Republican members. Well, that's good that the Republicans Nevada still have a backbone president trump then promptly got Nevada to trend on twitter. He said this in an illegal late night coup Nevada's clubhouse governor. Made it impossible for Republicans to win the state president trump wrote on twitter. Post Office could never handle the traffic of male in votes without preparation using Cova distill the state see you in court. The president is one hundred percent right on this. If we allow mandatory mail in voting to happen unchallenged, we are headed for the biggest disaster of an election in our lifetime. There is a reason why the Democrats want mail in voting it is ripe for fraud. People might say, well, Charlie what about absentee voting that is always a small sliver of the amount of votes in the absentee ballots are always the majority of the voter fraud claims as they are. In some states, absentee ballots are anywhere between five to ten percent. Sometimes, there is lows two percent in states like Oregon, which is complete and Total Democrat control. The only way to vote you cannot show up on election day in Oregon. It is all vote by mail and it starts in early October leading up to election day. Because of this Democrats US organizing tactics to be able to do a thing called ballot harvesting ballot harvesting is how in Orange County California Republicans wants controlled five five US congressional seats in Orange County after the last midterm election. Republicans lost all five. Now Republicans were leading some of those seats such as young Kim on election night. But then all of a sudden new ballots were found. Mail in ballots were discovered. And the Republican candidates. Fell behind and behind and eventually lost the race. The way that voting should work is through independent certification with election judges in decentralized fashion to have the most people centered citizen-focused way of voting. What do I mean by that? It means that when you have a local precinct that is in charge of the election for that one precinct, not the post office of the Postal Service you think called election judges, those election judges. Are Bound by the law and they usually represent both political parties Republican. Democrat, to make sure that there's no funny business now, it's not a perfect system voter fraud absolutely exists but a vast majority of voter fraud is almost always voter registration fraud and ballot fraud with absentee voting. So, if we admit that the Democrats are pushing for mail and voting harder than anything they've pushed for in recent memory, the question should be why. They say it safety. Mean that's such nonsense. Worried about people gathering. Then shouldn't they cancel? The local marijuana dispensary or the casinos in Nevada. In Nevada, you are able to go to Caesar's palace in Nevada, you're able to go to the Venetian in Nevada, you can go to a local restaurant. and. They'd say that's perfectly fine if you wear a mask and socially distance. But it's not okay to be able to go to a local polling place. It's not okay to be able to wait six

Trump Administration Imposes Deadline For TikTok To Be Sold

"TIKTOK has on the market president. Trump says, he's giving the company that owns the video sharing up a month to sell it, or if not, he wants to talk banned in the US I, sent a date of around September fifteenth at which point is going to be out of business in the United States. Over the weekend, the president spoke with the CEO of one potential buyer Microsoft to explain what's going on with the future. Of TIKTOK, we've got NPR tech reporter Bobby Allen with us this morning. Hi, Bobby Tae. They're just take a step back, explain why president trump is so interested in tiktok right now. So trump doesn't talk about tiktok without talking about China, and there is a reason for that tiktok parent company Bite. Dance is based in Beijing and trump says that means tiktok harvesting the private data of millions of American citizens and sharing it with the Chinese Communist Party now wasn't that's really happening is up for debate. There's no conclusive evidence that it is, but trump views it as a black and white issue to talk either stays Chinese owned, and we'll be banned or the APP is bought by an American company like Microsoft, like you mentioned and it can stick around. So we mentioned this in the intro that Microsoft's CEO actually sat down with President trump over the weekend I mean is. The CEO of Microsoft feels it's necessary to actually vet this potential purchase with the. President. Yeah. Because the walls have been closing in on Tiktok for some time, the president has been threatening economic sanctions against Tiktok. Other members of the trump administration have been talking about other ways to basically ban Tiktok from the United States completely and Microsoft spied opportunity here. Microsoft said. Well, let's see if we can acquire the American assets of Tiktok and The do that they need to get the blessing of the trump administration. So I think Microsoft CEO just wants to be one hundred percent sure that trump is not going to try to. And challenge the acquisition because that's the last thing you want when you make a huge merger like Microsoft is looking to do with Tiktok. So from the from a business point of view, bobby wood, a tick tock acquisition I mean is that a good buy for Microsoft? Yeah, it would be huge. I mean Microsoft already is a one point, five, trillion dollar company. Right. I mean they absolutely are a global powerhouse, but not really has Microsoft isn't really known for being on the leading edge of social media platforms for young people. Many people. Still when they think of Microsoft, they think of Windows, the operating system, not exactly the hippest image in the world, but Microsoft also owns xbox. It's one of its most successful business lines in fact, and there's a lot of crossover between gamers and tiktok users not to mention bringing on to talk with allow Microsoft to go toe-to-toe with facebook, which has been looking at Tiktok and has been pretty envious. So envious that facebook has announced a copycat service that sounds a lot like tiktok. So in addition to all this Tiktok is also wrapped up in a big court case. Can you explain what that's all about? Right. So as the focus has been on Tiktok Washington troubles, another problem has been quietly brewing in federal court There's a massive class action lawsuit about allegedly stealing data from users, and the crux of sued is about whether Tiktok has been sending data about American. To China, the lawyers claim they have proof of this, but it does still have to be proven in court tiktok lawyers though say, yeah, the APP captures and stores all sorts of data as all APPS DO, but they're not giving any of it to Chinese authorities at least that's what Tiktok says.

Interview With Carmela Wilkins

"Now for this week's interview. I'm talking with Carmelo Wilkins a graphic designer at ab partners in New York City. Let's start the show. Paul Right. So tell us who you are and what you do everyone. My name is Carmel Wilkens and I'm a graphic designer ab partners, which is a digital strategy and creative storytelling agency that is black owned and founded Nice I. Definitely want to get more into that but before we do you know of course, we are recording this now it's in the middle of. Even to say, it's the middle because of the rising cases I feel like we're still somewhere in the beginning but how are you holding up during this time right now? Oh my goodness I would have to say the biggest struggle for existing in the same space in which I work and also live. Or I used to be able to leave my apartment, go to the office and then be able to come back home. You know my retreat my safe haven. But now there's no distinction between two because my desk in my bed are about I don't know a third of an inch away from one another. It something that I've experienced since working from home and having short from home that it's especially the first couple months was really difficult to to have that distinction to create space for myself where I can just rest be at. Men. Also explore my own personal pursuits within my practice. So that's something that's definitely been difficult and also having to support and maintain my family as the breadwinner, my family that live in Rhode Island, and during the beginning of the pandemic, the beginning of quarantine, I had to run around and figure out how to get my sister who studying abroad in Japan. While he was supposed to the umbrella in Japan this past semester from Tokyo back to the US. Yeah. It was. It was really intense. My greatest fear was number forty five was going to just block off all of East Asia including US citizens and that would cause an entirely new problem but are very lucky me and my mom are very lucky to get my sister over here as soon as we could very thankful for that. Haven't even think about like I knew that there were supposed to be some travel restrictions from I think some countries in Europe I hadn't even considered Asia. Although I think now, countries, WANNA keep us out like I. Think the just recently as like Americans y'all stay over there don't come over here. It's a real kind of interesting struggle I. Think a lot of folks are getting into you know I'll tell you I saw a few months ago I was working for a company and. right around like March the folks that were in the New York office they said, okay. We're going to close the office and you have to work from home and then they had to kind of adjust to. Kind of being in this sort of now space where you have to work in live in the same spot and. Work remotely for like over ten years now I, live in Atlanta so like for me wasn't a big huge departure in that like you said, like you're better your desk like a third of an inch away from each other same but. I think what's been the rough is like not having the option to leave like you could leave and go somewhere but it's just not the smart thing to do. So it's like this weird kind of push pull tension between. Wanting to almost want to say rebel and go out. But then there's also like the fear of missing out if you're staying inside being safe. So you're like Oh. What should I do? You know what's the right choice to make? So I understand that that was it been in New York? Has Been, very, interesting as had so many ups and downs are have had my. From all the stays outside of New, York contacting left and right from overseas just wondering if I'm okay. How am I eating how my paying my rent? Like how do I have a roof over my head and it's it's been stressful on to reassure everyone like hey, I'm okay. Responsible saying if I am leaving my apartment, I'm also coordinating with the three other people that live with. We have this rotating schedule of WHO's leaving the House to specifically for groceries not for everything else not like from going for a walk or something but. On the quarantine in New York when we were really confined to art to disarm apartment and we were concerned with if of our roommates were sick or not not knowing like having massive era of uncertainty with what was going on in the households on just how going to sustain ourselves. So we created those really awesome system of how we're going to get groceries who's going to get. It has greater safety net and why like physical safety? Not all's. When it comes to go outside and retrieving groceries and coming back and sharing that space in the kitchen and how to do that A. Mindful away. If we're cautious about, say one of our roommates being sick which actually did happen. One of my roommates were sick for about thirty five days and we were very confused and also scared honestly, and they were definitely as while if they were sick or not. If they had covert but we all got tested I believe last month while three under the four of us got tested last month and to including came back negative and then one of my roommates came back positive. So. What it means because it doesn't really mean anything the tests aren't hundred percent accurate sort kind of like, okay. We live together like we're gonNA continue watching for each other symptoms and see what happens. That is both confusing and scary. Yes exactly. I mean to take the test. I mean, of course to know whether or not you're negative or positive but then because it seems like well, the virus is mutating and you know the symptoms are changing and. I. Hope you're staying safe I mean I I don't really know what advice to kind of given that. Than, just to the vigilant wash your hands so Social distancing. Well, let's talk about a be partners. You mentioned that being a digital strategy firm, it's black owned. How has it been adjusting to working from home if they've been cool everything. AM So. To be working where I work book, we have had moments on a one to one basis with on the team recall said moments as full team to just talk about their current reality that we are all facing. The is impacting us in various ways that we either have chosen to spoke about or having spoken about one another, and this is also my first full time job before I was freelancing. So it's really comforting to know the management team and those are the overseeing everything have employers in mind like our health, our our mental wellbeing, our overall wellbeing in mind, and at any point during the last, I don't know how many months has been I'm like losing track of time at this point. Like. If at any point, we needed to just take a step back from all the craziness going on. It's okay to do so and they completely understand. So that was really really important for me because I really value work life balance I. Think they've done a great job at the beginning of the quarantine they're just like, Hey, folks. So we want everyone to be really comfortable and adjust themselves to work from. Home. Like here's some extra cash like on us to really make your `rumour habitable for working and living, and I was really I was really kind. They didn't have to do that but but they did and I really appreciate it out. So did everyone else

Surviving Suicide

"Hey, there a warning before I. Start Today Show. We're GONNA. Be Talking about some pretty heavy topics. Today will be talking about mental health anxiety depression. And surviving suicide. Parental discretion is advised. In twenty, nine, thousand, nine, nearly eight, hundred, thousand people died of suicide. means, every forty seconds someone was taking their own life. And, suicide is a global phenomenon in certainly their populations, certain people, certain experiences that place. You at greater risk of suicide. But for every person who dies from suicide, it's estimated that there's another twenty. Who attempted suicide? That means for every one person who dies of suicide. There are twenty people who survive it. But death by suicide and suicide attempts are preventable. Now, that is not to say that you. You alone can prevent someone. From taking their own life or from even trying. But. It does mean that we've got to start having these conversations more openly. We've got to remove the stigma. GotTa be able to know the sign so that there's something we can do so that we can intervene. So today because of the pandemic, because of racial tensions because of the world that we live in today, suicide rates are higher than ever. Now, I've heard reports that suicides are up nearly two hundred percent so far in twenty twenty and I did my best to substantiate those statistics. Night can't tell you. I can substantiate the number of suicides is that much higher wouldn't surprise me. I just can't substantiate it when I can tell you is that Google searches Calls to suicide prevention lines and visits to online support groups are up more than two hundred percent since the lockdown began. You should also know that suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the US. In fact, I WANNA lead with some really powerful statistics so that you'll begin to think about this, not just in terms of you or your family members. But your neighbors, your parents, your grandparents, your nieces, or nephews every day. The CDC estimates about one, hundred, twenty, three people die from suicide, and that was in twenty nineteen. It's also estimated that only half of Americans who are experiencing some form of depression or anxiety ever seek treatment. But did you know that between eighty to ninety percent of people who do seek treatment for depression or anxiety find success by using therapist and or a medical intervention? Did you hear that like eighty to ninety percent feel better? An estimated quarter? Million People? Every year are survivors of suicide attempt. In previous years, suicide was the second leading cause of death in the world for people ages fifteen to twenty, four today, it's the number one leading cause of death. And although more females than males attempt suicide. represent. Seventy, nine percent. Of, all suicides in the United, states? Firearms being their most commonly used method and for females. The most commonly used method is overdose poison if you will. Now, let's talk about who is at greatest risk I. It is our LGBTQ plus community. There are three times, more likely special kids, three times more likely than straight kid to attempt suicide Oh nps if you have a sneaking suspicion that your kid might. Be Gay. Bi. Trans. Trust me just accept them and love them if you don't. They feel that. They know that don't assume your Keta straight is what I'm trying to say kids who worry about what their parents and society might think are three times more likely. To commit suicide forty-one percent of trans, adults that they've attempted suicide and the same study found that almost sixty one percent of trans people who were also victims of some form of assault sixty. One percent of those people have attempted suicide because get this lesbian gay and bisexual young adults who come from families where either the belief the notion, the sentiment was that they would be rejected because of their sexuality. Those kids are eight times more likely to commit suicide. Then, children who come from families where they feel very accepted. Each time and lgbtq person is of victim of any type of harassment or abuse that increases their risk of self harm by almost three hundred percent. Those are some of the most at risk populations, the elderly, also a very high risk population. What do I have delivered for I? Don't WANNA be a burden to my children. There's nothing for me to look forward to. Black talk about risk factors regardless of population demographic. The WanNa be on the lookout for these risk factors. Place people at a much higher likelihood of attempting suicide, any previous known or unknown or diagnosed mental disorder. Especially mood disorders, schizophrenia bipolar ast, which is autism spectrum disorder autism, any anxiety disorder, and certain personality disorders. Those who regularly use substances, like you know, drugs, alcohol painkillers, people who tend to be more impulsive or aggressive anyone with a history of trauma, sexual abuse, verbal abuse, physical abuse people who are experiencing a major physical disability setback, chronic illness, those with a family history of suicide, those who have a close friend or relative committed suicide anyone who's in recent job or financial distress. Those, who recently lost a relationship at greater risk for suicide is anyone who's being isolated or who lacks their peers social support?

How to find (or become) a good CFI

"People keep asking me how to become a better CFI. On how do I get better as a CFO or if you're on the pilot slash students side of it, you can say, what am I looking for when I look for a good? Good CFI. I mean, that's a really tough one to answer honestly because you can. Be Brand new to the game. And you might have had fantastic instruction and you might have. A BIG APPETITE FOR Washington struggle I mean that's not a bad but he might enjoy helping people solve problems. Born teacher and just because you're new doesn't mean you're bad. Without bragging I sort of think that's the situation I was in right I met Richard. I knew I wanted to be a teacher. I was intentionally putting my whole heart into an reteaching some of the stuff that he taught me on and. Certainly Green when I started a lot of mistakes and have corrected a lot of those things since that I still make mistakes. But I think I was a pretty good teacher straight out of the gate. Had A colleague enough for jet blue and I distinctly remember him saying to me one day. He said, Hey, dude, I can't I'm feeling really guilty I can't see my students. For anything, except ours. He was seeing as little our Johnson, his logbook. But even though he was coming from that perspective, he did a pretty darn good job. Right? He he had a sense of responsibility when it came to teaching people and he was doing his best. Now, you can have an old timer who hasn't worked at a flight and Flying School or Fight Club and twenty years. Maybe he has fifteen thousand hours in his logbook but I might be a really bad teacher you know set in his ways not. Not, keeping up with the things that are changing on. This just illustrate how it's not a very simple problem. Certainly from the student pilots to know. If, you've got a good instructor how to find a good instructor if the instructor you're working with this week in any way. But one thing you can ask are certain you know metrics I'd ask how many students that person has put up for a check ride in the last say three years. Or two years, which is the. Recurrent training interval required for CFI's we have to go back for a flight instructor renewal course every two years. And it doesn't have to be a lot. If someone says I put ten people through in two years says something and someone says that but one person two years that's fine to. The point is they're working with an examiner and that's really When I think about that question what makes against the F. I? How do I find a good CFI? And I struggled a look for some common denominator among all of the people I just started described in a two personality types I just. Any one of those things is some version of peer review. That's an extremely important part of the process for everybody. Phase checks, for example. I rely on fees checks heavily on even if it's not an official face check, I love it when my students. Take a lesson I can't be there and I say they want to eat fly with Mary this day or Fly with jaffer whomever it is. It doesn't even really matter what I want from that instructor is one hundred percent honesty no ego involved right? I've been doing this for. Twenty years more than twenty years now, and I want to know if there's holes in my game and I'll give you a great example. You know this is probably five years ago. So there I am fifteen years into Jane. On and I sent a student on a number two as a lesson or a check but he goes out with Jeff Rappaport who jeff was a pretty new CFO at the time he was my instance student. So you had been a relatively museum. and. Jeff comes back and says you know you're seeing it in great on this this this and the other thing. But I noticed that he didn't do after landing checkless. and. You're right. I don't think I'm very militant about after landing checklists. You know if you don't pull check this out for every climb level offer descent on you like white on rice but am I really that diligent about an after landing checklist when the wheels are on the ground over staring at the park probably not and is that a good thing? No. No that's not a good thing. It's a whole that Jeffcott immediately, and then certainly in examiner would catch. Right. So I immediately plugged that hole in my game. Haven't seen the all the time just made a mistake on Patriot regarding night currency requirements and one of the guys on my content team cut in, and we now I call the examiner and get to the bottom of it, but it's that Peer Review I. think that keeps instructors sharp. Keeps instructors current and saying relevant information. I'm in. It also inspires confidence. For the student.

"So we did they ll the videos out yet a hope maybe by the end of the week I've been. Kind of lazy this last week. there's other things going on but. We did the prototype chair. And I was in a hot debate with myself on whether or not to add the embellishments to that chair or leave it as it is because it's I thought it looked kind of cool as it is, but I also wanted to do these other things to it. And I made the decision to leave it as is. So that video is complete, just got to shoot the ending in. Put that out and then I had started but not gotten very far on version number two I have this beautiful walnut slab and I'm not really in slab furniture. So I'm going to cut it up into pieces and I can resell it, and I can get the the legs in the seat out of it and I kind of home the design a little bit more so it doesn't look so. it looks cool but there's a there's a computer Drawing element to it that kind of boats may so I? I just kinda redrew it just a little bit. To get rid of it, give it some more I guess Pachuco feel to it and then. For the owls if you I mean nobody's seen this. So but the most of it is made up of of dowels and on the second one I use PVC pipe, it is such a cheap option and I was. For a little bit, Kinda wanted to do a stainless steel and get too expensive and maybe it's too cold and the alternative to that was conduit electrical conduit, which is also super cheap. You get like a ten foot thing for four bucks or whatever. and then settled for the PVC. 'cause it's going to have like a brilliant white up against this walnut Look good. So starting with that, and the problem with this one is a totally fail because the slab have has we're grain in it. and. Then you know whenever you cut into that, it could just twist and bandon turned into a single chip. So hopefully, it doesn't. So That's Canada now and Yeah I'm happy. I'm happy with the design I. I. I e fumbled a little bit or a Kinda. Where your bottom sits on there, I fix curbed a little bit and then the back is I move the curve down just a little bit just to make it a little bit more comfortable. It's still I don't think it's going to be a chair that you wanNA, sit in for hours. Because there's no cushion. It's just kind of forms to your body. But as a dining chair, I think it will work just fine. It's like a starbucks chapter like the starbucks chairs look really comfortable in about three or four minutes in you're like. They, do that on purpose so you don't stay in there. was going to say about furniture is one of the designed chairs I know my own personal experiences you never know if you've made the right decision that insecurity will sit with you forever might mice stools with you Built it will haunt you forever because every time I sit in my stool I made four of those those made full more for customers. I was very anxious to send out hoping that they would be happy with the result, but that's the way I am with anything that I ever make for customer I'm always anxious fulfilled their expectations. But by stools, I've made three of them made for them. Three of them are here at my house. One of them's entails design studio and I was sitting in last night and the whole time I'm sitting in my mind is just an autopilot maybe the foot rungs to love maybe the former inkster high, maybe the the the the but is too low maybe the butts to hide maybe why I grabbed on my fingers, it could have been thin. I can't stop it. So it's the same thing like when you're sitting in your run chair show you having very similar experience. You just can't stop let you can did I make the right decisions one hundred percent I might my personal thought was if I can sit in this chair without thinking about sitting in this chair than I know a I've done it right but I Without, judge without feeling without trying to figure out where to go next it's I. Don't know if I'll ever get to that point.

"Couple movies that are coming out that I think are worth just pronounced kidding about the vendor series and game is going to go down. I think people will see that movie. Oh, hell. Yeah. That's my big prediction. I also think lion. King can be the year of the live action Lion King. I think Toy Story four feels unnecessary and be as good, and I don't think it'll bomb, but I don't think it will do amazing Allen. I dunno why? Because Tim, Allen's out here like, you know, really getting pop in for like all right in middle America. So maybe they'll go see it. I will fully be pushing small children out of the way to that. Linking live action. Producers that blanking will put the smash on a lot of record box office record. I it's going to be a whole of it because it's odd. It really is energizing multiple generations in a way that is not is not like Star Wars where that was already sort of sci-fi niche kind not that it's Nisha, but like Lion King. You know, it touched everybody episode nine comes out from Star Wars. And I think it won't do as well as a episodes seven and eight I think it'll well this is gradually gone less. And less, right. Because we're like has. That's why even Lucasfilm was like, okay. I think people are getting Star Wars fatigue. Yeah. And they weren't when he sold it. But they are now. Well, yeah, they were doing a lot. They're doing a lot. But I think I'm so nine we'll be good. Yeah. I think episode of nine we'll be good. And it just won't do quite as well as the other one, right? I think twice soy four will be trash also because kids don't have toys. Like when does that? So you're telling me my life when I leave the room like they're going to have to really like updating the cowboy oh, weird like cloth body. I haven't seen a little baby with a toy car. And I don't know how many years old they're still around are. They maybe from a parent from babies, but then once you get to the age where like so right now, I just don't let my kids have screens, and that's kind of the general recommendation. So it's all toys, but once they're able to get screens just over a sound like a good dad, Jack like, I don't know if everybody's asking parenting their kids that will man I've seen people all the time who they just they got their kid with their mouth of God bay just slack jawed at a screen this baby talk, and you're just like. Yeah. I see a lot like, you know, but I get I get also to like if when you're busy it's easy to be like you'll vibe out on this thing because I need a second. But I also see like I've also seen parents try and take an ipad, and you can tell like someone addict the addiction loop has formed or something like.

But she strikes me as someone who wasn't built to act like this all the time. Like, I think she's adapted. But I don't think deep down. This is anything she wants she ever wanted.

She's not talking from a place like maniacal calm like I would expect somebody who's going to be able to fully endure there's a lot of anger about the whole situation. So, you know, who knows if she's a anybody who's in the room with him more than fifteen minutes is going to hear some wild. Right. You really think she listened? She seems like someone who tunes everything out. Yeah. Like have you ever seen her face? She does not know what goes out one clip her meeting Putin and right after they shake hands like her is like reset and she liked gives his death stir. It's wacky. I like your statement that she's weathered colder win. Than don't. She's like, I'm not noted this come on. Now. I I also think that this is not on the Donald Trump trying..

"I hope it has enduring impact in a different way. Well, it certainly left liberals being interested in the courts will be fine, but I really hope this keeps people fired up about electoral politics like we can't rely on the supreme court to be the one arm of government that does are bidding whether liberal or conservative, you need vibrant electoral democracy. You need legislatures acting, and I really hope that at the state level at the local level, the city level and at the at the federal level that people are engaged about that issue and and and use those institutions to move forward. Because I think those are the institutions that were designed to respond to the popular will. The courts are very going to be very hard to move its acting in by voting and by being incredibly active citizens and pushing for for legislation that you want. That's gonna make. Biggest difference. The court is has become by bec- because the other two institutions of government, the other two arms of government have withered. So when are so so bad and how they carry out their business it, the court has become overly powerful into having Democrats pick recognize electoral politics matter and vote and vote and vote in vote. That seems to me, I hope is an outcome of this, although I think what you're saying it makes great sense. But the danger is that they ties to presidential election. We saw it with President Trump where people had all kinds of reservations about him, but said, well, he's going to name the springboard Justice now, name too, so that that is more important than any other possible issue insurance. The presidency answer, basically a job where you do one thing for certain voters, which I think it's your your point Dante democratic in terms of having a robust system with all of its component parts that respond to different speeds in different ways to the will of. I guess I just wanna add one. More dope for we leave behind the this particular narrative, which is just that it's Kevin confirm than Christine. Blocking Ford is going to have turned her life completely upside down. You know, from a lot from my sense of her today in a lot of ways like changed it revocable in a way that is not what she wanted all and it will be for not. I mean, that is not her fault. It is not her shame. It's the countries, but I, I'm gonna find that just really, really hard, but it's not for not me. I mean, she did her duty as a citizen. She did her duty as somebody who's who's victim and she will be a, she may not have wanted it, but it was, you know, sometimes responsibility falls on you and you have to act and she acted in the honorable right way. And she will be, I think, rightly praised certainly on the left for the next generation for having done that. And while that may not be the same satisfaction as having actually stock. Opt Kevin o. from becoming a Justice. If he's not stopped from becoming a Justice, it does not in any way negate or or or diminish what she did and she and nor to diminish the impact that this may have on people in the same way that Anita hill failed to stop the Clarence Thomas for being confirmed as the spring court Justice but changed America. And I think it's possible that Ford will change American ways that we can't measure yet and not in the way that she hoped to change it. But in some other way that that it's hard for us to know. But she moved to people. She was credible. She was important and she spoke truth to power, and that's all you can ask someone to do. Hope you're right and Anita hill did say the other day that she does not regret having come forward, and I hope that will be true for Blasi for it as well. I just feel like she is not a person who wanted this notoriety. She wanted to be a professional. She wanted to be she wanted to life. She had it sounds like she had a good life and now she is world famous for one terrible thing that happened her what she was fifteen, and it's going to be just really hard. I think maybe I'm over identifying with her, but I just really feel for her. So let's leave it. There were taping on Thursday evening. Looks like there's going to be a vote in the judiciary committee on Friday as as we tape. That's the plan..

"If that happens, do you guys think that that will be an electoral catastrophe for Republicans? Do you think this is a thing which would cause Democrats to come out and and be just absolutely outrageous turn out even more than they would or do you think as I think is possible that this this whole episode is going to really motivate a lot of Republicans to come out and vote who maybe weren't even planning to, regardless of whether he gets confirmed, I think even confirmed they will come out and vote or maybe it won't matter at all. I think he should firms. I think that re- that democratic women women in general, who we've been I heard from today who just broke into tears at line because of the way is connected to their own frustration in not being heard and listened to in various ways about their own sexual assaults or very close to it. I think that if this gets framed in a confirmation as Republicans not listening to women. Then this becomes a motivational motivation for the lose. If you believe politics is if people are animated by grievance, Republicans will have gotten what they wanted, which is the confirmation of of having and and a control of court. That won't be a reason to turn out, but, but he's confirmed those who didn't want to happen. We'll be we'll be angry and watch it. Now, Emily, what do you think will happen with the court? If Cavanaugh is on John Roberts is so concerned with the court's legitimacy and the the notion that Cavanaugh would be joining that court having pass through on the narrowest of margins in the most contentious. If ways with so much question about his own credibility, his truthfulness and the possibility he is actually a sex criminal. What will the court be like? It's so bizarre to me that someone who made that incredibly emotional reason tation. Well, then put on a black role. And you know March along as court Justice, but that's what will happen. I mean, we saw it happen with Clarence Thomas. Once you're in your chambers, people call you Mr Justice or whatever it is. People calls report justices. There will be complaints galore from critics of the conservative wing of the court when they make any five to four rulings, conservative versus liberals involving issues that relate to women and they will do it anyway because they will have the power to do it. That's what will happen. I can't believe that John Roberts is going to stay his hand in any significant way because you know now breath Cavanaugh has the same kind of, you know, cloud hanging over him that Clarence Thomas to join. You're really good on history on perspective. Do you feel like this cabinet episode regardless of how it turns out is going to be poisoned in the soil of American politics for generations to come. Or do you think it will be forgotten in a way that. These things you know that that once seemed Douglas Ginsburg wants him important a for just one seem important. And now no one cares aid for this was a kind of a special case because he turned out to have one, huge ethical issues. I think I think this plus Merrick, garland create this was Arlen plus trolls court creates on the liberal side kind of. Long term programmatic or in the legal community of the kind we've seen on the Republican side, you know, going back to the Warren court. I mean, if it's if you believe that Republicans have always cared more about the supreme court is voting issue and Democrats and have turned that into a systematic structural protein for trying to reverse the leftward move the port. I think that happens on the. I think that I think the same thing starts to happen more already happening, but but happens on the left. And I think because it has this gender aspect and this and it's not just gender, it's not just like women's issues. The conversations I've had here including now with my wife who was outed herself in her own here is experiencing with an assault. You cannot get any any hotter and to the core. Or of someone's identity and rage than this, and whether you personally experienced it for or come close to it. It's about the strongest feeling you can get get to. So I think it will have enduring of an enduring impact..

"Create IPE indelible, but not necessarily broad memories and then regular people in their memories. It just doesn't that may and the campus yet John to that end. I thought the most astonishing moment in Dr Ford's testimony was that description of the laughter the uproarious laughter between the two, that kind of thing, which would stick. It would just like remain in the memory was so strong because it you, you can just, you can just feel how she felt that moment in and that these this particular detail with stay with you and would be so hard to shake and so sticky in your brain. It was that that was the most powerful moment of the day for me. One of the things Deborah Ramirez said, which was that cavenaugh when he like pulled his pants down, exposed himself, laughed at her, which is, of course completely at odds with the image. He's tried to make paint himself as being this, you know, sensitive advocate of women. There's only one of the most motive for line really unless you'd think that Dr Ford has a long is a long game where she's just been waiting to bring him down. And this moment the play, which I think is preposterous only only he has a motive to lie about it. She does not really. She's not make any money, it's not gonna. It's ruined her life. It's an isolated or light. So that's one big issue. And the other thing that I thought was so telling about the afternoon is that actually the Republicans did not at all engage with Dr Blasi Ford's testimony they it was as though she hadn't even been there, they didn't press him on anything that g mentioned. They just allowed him the conversation in the afternoon from Republicans perspective. Just Kavanagh's on our protecting his honor. He. He was speaking righteously for himself and he'd been characters as needed by democratic plot. There was no sort of substantive engagement with the actual allegations that she made in her incredibly persuasive testimony to that effect. That seems that seems to me maybe because I'm totally wrong. But that seems obvious to me because if you gauge with her testimony as we've seen throughout the week, leading up to this gauge by a male set Republican Senator is very easily characterized as doubting whether this ever happens with women in general, what? What? What? What standing up for his character allows them to say she was telling I found her credible, but then shifts the nature of the question to his carry his. Characters has nation his being dragged through this process. I think if they engaged with with Dr ward too much, they risked running into for lack of a better phrase and the need a Hillbrow. Well, that's true. But of course, the character assassination is coming about because she made this accusation and so can't right. I mean, politically speaking what you said makes total sense. But logically the beginning, it doesn't make. Just dealing with the politics, not and I am not the logic. No. I mean this and. And this is why the lack of closing argument really hurts me, which is nice for the purposes of logic, someone to take everything we'd heard from both sides and tied together with a unified field theory so that this can be, you know, understood with the narrative arc based on the fact that we're. Uncovered today. I, at this point assume that he is going to be confirmed. I think it's very likely they will be a party line vote on Friday morning where they will vote for him out of committee and that it will go to the floor. And I think there will not be enough to stop Collins and Murkowski from voting for him. I just don't think they can withstand the pressure that's going to come from the base after Kavanagh's exceptionally forceful performance and the pressure that will come from Trump on this. If that is the case, Emily, you can disagree about whether you think it's going to happen. I refuse to give up on calms Murkowski. There is just like a betrayal of women that will be unfolding if they do that. I mean, maybe they can come up with them principled way to explain it, but I don't know what it could possibly be. And so I just can't. I can't accept that yet. Although I completely see why you think it's like..

"Yeah, and he was at Yale and all the drinking is totally mixed into that. Julie sweat neck. The third accusers come forward also missing. You know, the FBI investigation that did not happen that one would presumably want if this was really about finding the truth and about clearing your name. I mean, I think that was those were the questions that Cavanaugh just like danced around. It was not convincing about today, and then there's the missing Mark. Judge the the friend who would presumably back up cavenaugh, but it's so toxic because of his own drinking, which is really flagrantly on the record that he the Republicans can't let him into the room. It's only by leaving out all of those people and factors that we can narrow this down this choice. Character assassination this about character assassination that Lindsey Graham wanted to be upset. I just say one quick thing about judge that this occurred to me which is having made it sound like, well, just friend, but you know, wasn't it severally as best friend, but but. Dr forty, put them in the same room like she didn't. I mean, she obviously didn't make up one thing about testimony that was so powerful. Whatever happened. This is not who came in at the eleventh hour because she's a democratic operative. No one can create a detailed narrative that just making it up. Right? And so she put porting having on the same room like why pick those two people. I mean. Making that connection and connecting him to the guy who wrote the book about how drunk he rise, that that that isn't incredible kind of piece of information that kinda wasn't wrestled with by his response about judge in which make it all the more important to have had him there to speak for himself, right? And also the fact that that calendar, which which Cavanaugh was so indignant about an insistent about indicated there was on July first, a party at which judge and Cavanaugh, and the other people that that doctor named were had were at a party at a different place. And so there there's there's so much in her story that that speaks to truth or or or is or is kind of confirmed by other vague ancillary evidence. I mean, you know, we'll obviously never know, but but judge judges absence was extrordinary and and the way. I thought Democrats were very inefficient and ineffective at making big deal about his absence. And you know the Senate Ken force him to come testify, they chose not to because the majority wouldn't want it, but it's it's pretty amazing. The judge has been allowed to skate on this ridiculous statement that he made about the morning, David. I wonder what you think about this. I mean, I think the weakest part of Blasi Ford, not not what she presented, but just like in trying to judge this is that there isn't someone else who were members being at that party. Doesn't mean it didn't happen no reason that it would have been memorable for the other people. There was thirty six years ago, but we don't have the, you know, firsthand corroborating witness. And you know if there was like, if you're gonna try to in a principled way, say I don't think there's enough evidence here to vote against Cavanaugh. I think that's your most principles like helping hand, but didn't I assume you guys have done the same exercise. Is that I've done, which is to think back like, all right, what was I like it fifteen. I think of episodes when I was fifteen and you can think you can call to mind the things that were most amazing difficult or shocking, but almost everything else is just a mass, like it's a sort of sense memory of something that happened there. Something that happened there, but you don't. You couldn't with any accuracy CEO what happened on this date or with these people? It's only there a few very specific things that you could call to mind which were particularly traumatic or particularly exciting. And so the chances that anybody else would remember that party that event, like how anyone got there, what happened if Dr Ford never said anything about it is nil. No one would remember that. So it's not at all surprising that nobody remembers that I know about the way the brain science works, which Emily brought up, you know, a week ago, but then we had a doctor on the show explaining that, you know, when you have a moment of trauma..

"For us, didn't use that as an excuse for him. He's refused to admit that that could be a possibility. And so we're left with this picture of that. He's presented himself in which you know to me his veracity is just like it's just at odds with all these other pieces of information. Yeah, the it was very defensive in and riddle about the question of drinking, and it just seems to be clear from both his friends and also the yearbook page and and his friend judge that that he was obviously more than he's letting on. The second thing is the political attack. Bring up the Clintons I think let let your Republican questioners do all that you. I thought it went. You know, when he talked about his daughter praying for Dr Ford and he talked about what this had done, his reputation, his family. I thought that was the most emotionally powerful. Why get into all the partisan stuff. Let's let the politicians do that. They're gonna do it. Why do you? Why is that helpful to your brief. Especially because then it costs doubt on how you're possibly going to be fair and impartial judge when you get to the bench and you have liberal causes and plaintiffs than Democrats in front of you just but I think he was playing for his audience was two sets of people. One was the president who he did not want the president to yank his nomination. I think he was weak and and so he was very much playing to the president. And then I think he was playing to the men on that committee in a very canny way. I thought it was an incredibly effective performance for those two audiences for the men. He he and for Trump it was his indignation, his denial, his aggressiveness about it, his aggressiveness towards the questioning with something which which we know Trump response to in the Trump respects admires and that that kind of concede territory attitude is is very Trumpian in his very sympathetic to it. And in terms of the the. The sender's himselves. I think they also saw themselves in cabinet and saw the sense like, oh my God, I could be subject to this and look at. He's standing up for his honor in the way that I would stand up for my honor. I think they were the white male Republican senators were very, very strongly identifying with him in that is exactly why they took back. The questioning midway through is like they suddenly recognize I wanna be associated with this guy. I don't need to. I don't need to protect myself any more in the way I did in the morning, but I don't wanna be on record asking any questions about this. I don't want a computer Dr buzzy for like they suddenly they realize like, you know what this guy is going places I wanna be with him. I wanna get on the side of it, and it was the basis going to like it. I totally agree. And then of course the play is that you force doesn't constantly simmer Cousy and I guess Jeff flake if he's still in play you force there. Hands. You make them vote for you because the other forty eight centers plus President Trump are still behind you. That's the play and I was prized, but I think they're totally right about it. I think the play was most exactly articulated by Lindsey, Graham, you know, part of this when it's done is who gets to define the argument who do what the question is. It's going to be decided before the vote. And if you can define that territory, you know you frame the question you win and Lindsey, Graham basically said for any Republicans, thinking about voting against him will be vote for characters assignation. So it's trying to shift it from, do you believe Dr Ford to? Are you okay doing this to him and for cavenaugh sorry for Macau skin Collins. The extra power of that there is it doesn't matter for corker and flake. They're leaving, but base voters in their states are getting a cue from Graham and saying, this is the choice that the Senator is making. And so it's increasing the pain threshold for them from Republicans who see things the way Graham totally right about Lindsey, Graham reframing. And of course what it leaves out of the picture. We're all the people and elements that were missing today. So Deborah Ramirez wasn't there the second woman who accused him of sexual misconduct when she was?.
