"I think they are wider. Yes yes yes. So they're wired headphones. Which means you're going to have a cable going to have to plug in. But here's the thing the key thing. Is you want to make sure that you can hear everyone on your broadcast. So for example. Want to make sure if mark doing production. I wanna make sure that i can hear his cues for example he makes so that's key. I wanna make sure that. I can hear you know if a guest has a question for example during livestream. I wanna make sure i can hear like their audio that sound good so again. We're not saying you gotta break the bank on these. I mean these are twenty four bucks. So the years or casey zia sends. These are great headphones for the price. Now couple of things they do come in two different colors there. One thing we definitely would recommend. So there's you know if you kind of look here. So you've got ones with a mike and you got ones with no mike as well and i think that's important you know because you got to kind of look at how you're going to use these so if you're going to get these and you're going to use them for live streaming live streaming on a desktop. It's okay and you don't have an expensive mike or usb micro next seller mike that stuff and you just have these so when they got remember with these. If you get the ones with a mike you're able to plug man. You could actually like. Use azure lyceum. Headwinds where you could talk directly ended up mike. If you buy the ones that don't have the mic there primarily. Just be from listening. So you may those in. But that means you're going to have to have a separate mike to able to talk into your livestream broadcast. So i like these a lot and the other flipside of this by the way that i also like is the fact that these we go well with mobile as well so if you buy the headphones without the mike then you know you could theoretically use your smartphone as another webcam. If you wanted to. And you'd be able to. You know there'd be no mike. You just have headphones. Cut trickett If people were you know trying to use their smartphone as a like a second camera and they're they've a regular camera. But i do like these casey's ends as well. I think is an excellent pick-up marco. So so i'm very happy with mine. So and the great thing is. I mean like you didn't spend much money right. How much were you had votes. I think around twenty dollars twenty bucks. I spent like sixty bucks for mine..

Why the Civil Rights Movement Was a Bad Thing for Black People
"What are some of the hot topics we you said you wanted to talk about. Pride month prior month so black people only get twenty eight days but Lgbtq pride month is it's now the month of june and june teeth which is in june cuts into pride month. So it's fundamentally homophobic uh-huh need to talk about that so i'm gonna say something that's groundbreaking and is going to offend. A lot of people are right. The civil rights movement was the worst thing to happen to this nation into the black community. Why because the civil rights movement pivoted this. lgbtq narrative and it's also pivoting. Pedophilia push as a form of sexuality. Follow me for a second. we're gonna have to. This is crazy. But i'm gonna be real with you. People don't tune out. Could this always ends well. But you gotta hang in is heavy so now which helped understand the segregation was not an all of the united states of america. Right it was only in the south correct right so let's talk about. Harriet tubman for a second. I'm as an example slave in maryland. She traveled a hundred miles north to philadelphia. The moment she touched philadelphia. She was a free woman right. So this tells you in the north. Obviously since i found it fathers there was no slavery. It always was in the south. Okay jim crow laws and all of this stuff. This success always in the south. Now you may have. Had the north people like marco mex and all of these people talk about it and take on the culture in a sense of the depravity of what was happening but that wasn't there portion right so now martin luther king comes in. He says listen. We want to have the same abilities in the same access to what white people have but we had it. We have built our own schools. We had owned businesses. Our homes solid right so now. Civil rights comes in Jfk dies and the newborn johnson steps in and he says listen. I understand your struggle. we're going gonna make it equal for everybody but we also do a warm poverty. We're going to give you guys welfare
How Chaos In Afghanistan Emboldened Terrorism - burst 1
"Chaos in afghanistan upton as president biden withdrew military forces leading to a forceful takeover by the taliban today august seventeenth. We will dive into one of the greatest foreign policy. The buckles in modern history. Good afternoon. i'm meeting. Kim and this is the outspoken oma quote. Joe biden has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy national security issue over the past four decades and quote. Who said that not trump not a partisan congressmen or republican operative. That was robert gates. The former secretary of defense under president obama for three years and today as we see significant foreign policy the buckle unfolds in afghanistan that quote is once again reaffirmed now quickly dive into some basic background information as to what is transpiring in afghanistan back in mid april president biden announced immediate withdrawal all american troops from afghanistan by september eleventh. Twenty twenty one. Obviously september eleven was chosen dates because that was to recognize the anniversary of the september eleventh terrorist attacks and which led to the immediate was occupation of afghanistan because at the time afghanistan was harboring osama bin laden on august fifteenth. The taliban took over the capital of kabul effectively toppling. Afghanistan's governments later afghan. President ghani fled the country right before taliban leadership storm the presidential palace and thousands of afghan citizens fled to kabul international airport to skip the taliban. Now while oldest was transpiring. President biden was in camp david and he was strong criticized because he didn't have a strong message or strong immediate message in response to all of this so he traveled back to washington. Dc to address the nation from the white house one of the biggest elements that he was criticized for in the speech was the blame game in which he played and one of the obviously notable people in which she blames forwarded the buckle in afghanistan was trump and sort of implied some blame to bush and obama. He said quote when i came into office. I inherited deal that president trump negotiated with taliban on the his agreement. Us forces would be out of afghanistan. May i twenty twenty one. Just a little over three months after i took office. Us forces had already drawn down during trump administration from roughly fifteen thousand five hundred american force to two thousand five hundred troops in country. The taliban was strongest militarily. Since two dozen one the choice i had to make as your president was added to follow through on that agreement or be prepared to go back to fighting the taliban in the middle of the spring fighting season and quote. And but if you actually look at the deal that trump's state department may with taliban it's not what biden actually described in his address at a nation. Mike pompeo who was secretary of state under president trump said in a recent interview that the deal of the taliban was strictly conditional which meant that deal was was strictly predicated on the taliban committing to a peaceful transfer of power in order for america to withdraw after that commitment to a peaceful transfer of power appel said in a recent interview quote we would have demanded the taliban actually deliver on the conditions that we let out in the agreement including the agreement to engage in meaningful power sharing agreement some that which we struggled to get them to do but made it clear it was going to be required before we completed requirements to fulfil foley withdrawal and unquote. And you know there are some criticisms of the deal. Mike pompeo made with the taliban. Obviously the taliban actually pursuing a peaceful transfer of power from the afghan government was not going to happen. I mean we actually thought. That was being overly idealistic. So people had that criticism upon pales deal but even if biden did not agree with the policy that trump's state departments made in efforts to come to some sort of consensus with the taliban he kind of reversed it. I mean he was president for seven months. Which meant that. He'd independence day department and independence defense department and he could have used his powers as the chief executive to to reverse a deal that the previous administration made i mean for his entire time as president of the united states reversed nearly every single policy. That trump did while he was president. So this is no exception. I mean he should own up to the flaws of the policies in which he tried to pursue in addition to to trump he also blamed the afghan military. He said quote. The truth is but this did on for the more quickly than we had anticipated. So what happened. Afghanistan political leader escape up and fled the country the afghan military collapse. Sometimes we're not trying to fight if anything developments at the past week reinforced the ending. Us military involvement in afghanistan. No was the right decision. American troops cannot ensure not be fighting a war and dying in award. Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves and quotes. This is honestly one of the most politically cynical things that i've ever heard biden say the afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves. Fifty thousand afghan military soldiers died in darndest entire two decades of us occupation of afghanistan. And the reason why they cannot successively defend themselves against the taliban was because biden himself pulled out a contractors and basically destroyed the afghans dependency on us military which are obviously undermined the ability of afghan military to counter act opposing taliban forces. According to the wall street journal quote in the wake of president biden's withdrawal decision the us pulled its airports air support intelligence and contractors servicing afghanistan planes and helicopters. This meant that afghan military simply cannot operate anymore and quote. Admittedly afghan leadership was significantly underprepared in the wake of the draw because as by afghan officials did not believe america will draw however according to andrew watkins a senior analyst for afghanistan and at the international prizes group research advocacy organization. There was no evidence that the taliban significantly increased their manpower and argue. The only reason why there's summer offensive was successful was due to a lack of us. Air strikes which meant that biden's administration shorter significant blame for the dismantling of the afghan government. What biden actually expect to happen when he pulled the entire the tire. Us presence from afghanistan if the afghan military dependent so much on the us occupation of afghan for the viability of their own independent military force. Then of course when they pulled out of afghanistan. The afghan military by itself was not sufficient enough to defend against the taliban if you're pulling out intelligence contracts that were vital for the dependency of the afghan military than have military is expected to fall when the taliban was advancing to the nation's capital and one of the other things that addition to buy actually blaming everyone except for himself for the marco afghanistan biden also discussed casualties in the in the afghan occupation. He said quote. Lemme ask those who wanted to wanted us to stay. How many more how. Many thousands more of american daughters and sons are willing to risk and quotes according to abc news. There's not been a single american combat death since february eighth twenty which was eighteen months ago. That's not to belittle the two thousand three hundred twelve american soldiers that lost life in afghanistan. But it is the suggests that thousands of stationed american soldiers in the lead up to the afghanistan pull out were not being bogged down by precipitous warfare in combat honestly by contrast more than fifty one thousand taliban fighters were killed by american armed forces which shows a major power imbalance in military superiority between taliban in american forces but aside from that by reportedly sent five thousand additional troops back in afghanistan to aid withdrawal despite his call for not putting sons and daughters at risk he just said that it was egregious to put american sons and daughters at risk for filled mission. So what is different about the five thousand additional troops. He sending back into afghanistan. Aren't those sons and daughters. Also at risk and to add insult injury tens of thousands of american citizens have been left behind it in afghanistan in the withdrawal according to the washington according to wall street journal an estimated ten thousand fifteen thousand new citizens remained in afghanistan so yes it is tragic. Every single american soldier died in. afghanistan is a tragedy. No one is disputing dance but suggests that afghanistan was a present danger to the current military soldiers. There from february twenty is simply not true and biden. Really closer to speech with i think when idiotic things that he said in his entire speech close with kohl's diplomacy he said quote. We will continue to support the afghan people we will lead before. Diplomacy or international influence in or humanitarian aid will continue to push for regional diplomacy and engaging prevent violence and instability will continue to speak out for the basic rights at the afghan people of women and girls just as we speak all around the world and quote and my question is just how. How can you negotiate with radical barbaric terrorist group that subject it's ethnic religious and gender minorities to brutal torture and murder. How can you negotiate with democratic for cystic regime. That is responsible for thousands of american lives. I mean honestly gonna ask nicely are gonna get on your knees and begged them to treat the afghanistan woman fairly. I mean i don't understand why biden continues to believe that's diplomacy instead of for actually using military forces is the correct way to go and this brings us back to. What was this for honestly at the end of the day with withdrawn. Us military forces from afghanistan he effectively reversed two decades of foreign policy and the initial mission of counter terrorism and preventing a staging ground for al-qaeda according to the pentagon united states government has been eighty three billion dollars in bolstering the afghanistan government and which is effectively gone to waste. I mean we spend easily billion dollars to bolster an afghan military but the afghan military is so reliance on the american forces to to help them to secure them. But when the american forces are removed from the afghan military to aid them than the billion dollar investment goes down the drain and now according to you defense and state department officials six billion dollars in military equipment including eight hundred fifty mine-resistant ambushed protected vehicles were abandoned in withdrawal which six billion dollars in. Us military equipment is now in the hands of taliban and other terrorist organizations additionally chairman of the joint chiefs of staff mark milley addressed congressional leaders and said that they will move the terrorist threats in afghanistan from medium according to axios which meant that. Obviously you're going to see a rise in terrorism and afghanistan and now that the taliban effectively controls its governments and to add insult injury the inside reports that taliban militants released thousands of prisoners from afghan prisons with links to islamic jihadist groups and al qaeda. So what has changed in the past two decades. We've tried to counter terrorism. We tried to decrease the the influence of kind of effectively imprisoning or killing al qaeda militants. We tried to decrease the the power of the taliban and we tried to effectively counteract attacks by the islamic jihadist groups. But it seems to me after this withdrawal after the dust settled what is going to be. The state of afghanistan will be similar to the state of afghanistan when we first invaded and his brings me to a new york times article which discussed heavier mackey. Who was a former first class army. Special forces soldier with several afghanistan deployments and will shot twice and he said in an interview with the new york times quote. I sacrificed a lot. I saw death every day every year. And the guys. I soaked with new would probably come to an end like this. But the chaos and made his andre after everything we gave. I just wish that had been away to leave. With honor and quote for people like mackey. There is a question that rang in numerous veterans. What was it for the situation. Afghanistan has become similar to america. I evaded two decades ago. All the bloodshed in lives lost in pursuit of counter-terrorism only define the terrorism revitalize. This president has trade the continuing efforts of veterans and committed a damaging dereliction of duty as commander in chief of the armed forces is devastating. What is happening in afghanistan and we can only hope citizens in afghanistan. Remain safe in this critical juncture. All right before we signed off. I like to extend a special.

Biden Addresses Crisis in Afghanistan
"Building. It was never supposed to be creating a unified, centralized democracy. President Biden addressing the crisis in Afghanistan, That's right, Scott. We had that live for you yesterday as Biden returned to the White House from Camp David early to speak to the nation. The Taliban effectively gained control of the capital city after the Afghan president fled the country U. S forces that already drawn down during the Trump administration from roughly 15,500 American forces. 2500 troops in country. The president cited the quick collapse of Afghan security forces and said the U. S. Could not provide them the will to fight sharp criticism by Republicans for the Taliban takeover and Biden's reaction. Here's Senator Marco Rubio. They operated under assumptions that we're completely ridiculous. The assumption was well what if the Afghans stand up and fight and really push back? If you make those assumptions, Yeah, they could have held on for another six months or a year. But all the indications were that as soon as the US announced they were leaving, police officers would abandon post. Regular armed forces would abandon post and leaders would abandon the country. That is exactly what happened is what they were told that they were warned. What happened? They didn't care, and now we see the consequences of it. U. S military troops have maintained control of the Kabul airport, but the situation is chaotic as thousands of Afghans try to flee the country. This is W. De vo, where

"Marco and staff has been working with computers for a longtime. He grew up in former yugoslavia in the nineties. When there was civil war hyperinflation in the economy was taken back twenty years. His father was electronics guy. There was always a computer around the house. He found himself fascinated with information. And the things. You could conjure up on the magic screens. And he found that computers were place. You could build things that were not influenced by the outside world as a kid. He played sports mainly volleyball. He's taken many lessons from his time playing volleyball. Where a group of people have shared sense of purpose driving towards a goal while building applications under the guise of his web development agency rendered text. He and his fellow builders saw a need to have a way of automating the processes of building testing and integrating and doing so fast. This is the creation story of semaphore. Semaphore is cloud based product for college. You companies our customers are software development teams and semaphore helps them. Automates the process of testing and deploying code. That's kind of a big deal these days because you know software is built collaboratively. The problem that people need saul is how. How do you build software together. You know multiple people adding new codes implications. How do we make sure that it's everything's actually working right. So that's why in modern software development. You know there is an emerging practice of automating various phases of testing and delivering basically applications to end users and customers. So we help them do that. Productively because our product is thing here of that whole aspect of building software for them. Prior to creating similar we were small web development consultancy company was called rendered text. It's still call that but semaphore is what more more now in the world in our practice of basically building applications for clients typically like small start ups we basically saw needs to have how way of automating these processes of testing and integrating software together
People Across Florida Are Marching in Solidarity With Cuba
"I think this is the beginning of a a movement in which Cubans have said enough is enough. Cubans have reached a breaking point inside the Communist island and right here in Florida, Scott hunger, health, anxiety and anger spilling over into one another, opening the floodgates of a decades long oppression and emotion. Protests and rallies have popped up all over Florida and support of Cuba and its people. Here's reporter Alexa Lorenzo. This is something that was spontaneous. We've never seen that Dr Luis Martinez Fernandez was born in Havana, a history professor now at U. C. F. He knows well, what's playing out on the island. What the government does is it unleashes these violent fanatics to beat up Cubans who are basically asking for a universal right to protest piece. Fully the communist government has arrested hundreds of protesters restricted Internet access in Cuba, showing you the dictatorship that has dominated for decades. But the question is what's next here? And what is the U. S government doing about it? Where all these people that promise about human rights? Meanwhile, 90 miles from our coastline, human rights get trampled on every day. That's why Cuban Americans in Florida like Alberto Sarmiento are protesting. His father and grandparents fled for freedom, and he wants American politicians to do more to protect the people on the island. We need action in Cuba. Now. U. S. Senator Marco Rubio, a Cuban American has been a staunch opponent of the Cuban government, taking to social media and writing a letter to President Joe Biden, giving him six steps to take a horrific bloodbath is what awaits if action is not taken something like that does not happen. Senator Rubio also tweeting images of that show Cuban military and police. Barging into homes and detaining

How to Organize Your Live Stream Studio
"If somebody has a messy office the environment it can actually have a negative impact on your livestreams and not only. Does it make you know producing show. I mean it's already stressful to produce livestream show. There's always a small element of stress but having that clutter around your livestreams to do. It can lead to mistakes so for example. Maybe you miss a cue when you want to bring something in. It can also lead to broken equipment if you're having to fumble around for things and you got cables all over the place now. In addition to that though. I think also we should you know. Highlight that if you get cables for example in your your offices very disorganized if cables running over one another. And they're not good quality for example. You actually end up with feedback on your livestreams. And this is feedback that you know as you. And i both have said before marco audio is the most important part of a livestream so if you have that feedback. It can be very irritating and annoying for your listeners.

"Your housing your food your transportation and then medical and absolute necessities so if you have prescriptions or you've had doctor's appointments or you absolutely have to have daycare because you don't have family or friends that can watch and you have to pay for daycare.

And i gotta tell you i have so been looking forward to today's episode because my special guest is here to talk about something that matters to every single one of us is topic money. My guest today is quite boss. Marco is a twelve year navy veteran who deployed in support of operation enduring freedom. He got out got his bachelor of science. Degree started a side gig as a financial coach in two thousand sixteen while working in the nonprofit industry in didn't take marco long to realize that he was struggling with a lot of the same financial issues as the people. He was trying to help so in an attempt to fix his own struggles. Marco applied business cash flow principles to his own finances with an eighteen months. He added nearly one hundred thousand dollars to his net worth and his skills are skills that anyone can use. Marco now has his own financial consulting business. Called live like others. can't marco. it is so good to have you on the show today. Welcome to we serve now. What a thanks for having me on. It's pleasure to be here to serve all the rest of the veterans. They're listening absolutely man absolutely. Been looking forward to have you on the show. So what just take a few minutes and introduce yourself. Tell us a little bit of your back story how you got here. Well you covered a lot of it which was great but like it said so. I served twelve years of military. And when i got out i had a mountain of debt. I think it was like sixty thousand dollars in debt. When i left active duty was going to school got my bachelor business management and when moved down to florida a job. They're kinda help me pay down some more of The debt that ended up having once i got back from afghanistan. 'cause so side note. I went to afghan volunteer to to afghanistan to pay off my consumer debt and paid off the debt and then had a ton of money when i got back and did some investments that were really great but the problem was is. I didn't change my spending habits and some other habits. That i had that were really ingrained so i ended up building up that data again and was down in florida before i moved back home to ohio i ended up with like it probably about another twenty grand worth of debt when i moved back home and i was like said twenty twenty sixteen. I started looking at my personal finances. I got married in two thousand fifteen and after a year of trying to manage to all that we finally got everything into really like one pot start applying the business finance principles to my own personal finances and when i first started i was negative. Twenty five thousand dollars in my net worth so because all everything and i still wanna own twenty five thousand dollars so when i started applying some of those principles and turned it around and it was like oh my gosh in eighteen months be able to get to seventy five thousand and net worth. It was not so. I started taking some of those same principles and teaching some people. I knew some friends. And it's like okay. I really got something here but was really interesting. Is that these same principles basic math principles but these are the same things that have teaching the low income. People that for the nonprofit that i was working at so is really crazy that. There's so much parallel. The only difference is that my mistakes were spectacular because there is a larger amount of income to work with so it's it's really interesting the mindset that we don't teach so i that's what it was like. Okay there's a group of people working in the nonprofit world and the rule low income side of things. There's a whole support system around that but there's very few supports for this this middle class. The wealthy know how to do it. The low income have a ton of support. And when you're trying to make that transition to from low income or even the lower middle-class into an upper middle class even making that transition if you don't have some the fundamentals You're never gonna make it or it's gonna take forever by the time you retire like oh okay now i get. It would have been great thirty years ago. Sure so that's why i got into. That's what i got into being a coach. Cool man all right. So so the first question i have for you is it. It's a simple one. But i think it's one of those things that needs to be addressed because a lot of us find ourselves in a situation where we think that our finances are kind of like a bygone conclusion. You know i grew up in poverty. You know song going to stay in poverty. And so i don't even think about i. Just go through the motions. I you know. I get the car loan. I get credit cards. I get in debt. You know i do all these sayings in. I'm not really focused on my financial health right so when it comes to finances why should i even care. How big of a deal is it. Well i would have to say just starting out. It's actually perfect timing because this last year taught all of us. I mean how many people lost their jobs or were furloughed or laid off and maybe two never even get them back. It can come at any time. And if you're not prepared for it is what a lot of people don't realize is that when they signed their name for alone they're trading future time for something right now and it takes a special type of person to be an entrepreneur to be to be able to go out and create wealth but the majority of americans work for their money as opposed to creating their money. If that makes sense and there's nothing wrong with that. There's nothing wrong going to work and and working a nine to five job you can be in everyday millionaire working a nine to five job you can. It's entirely possible but it's just. It's really crazy that when when wrenches thrown into it that we lose traction so fast if thing was like bank rate. It's on the ads that you've been running for me so it's six hundred ten. Ten people don't budget seven ten barely budget. An eight out of ten are living paycheck to paycheck. It's it's crazy as stupid number. Eighty percent of the people in the us are living paycheck to paycheck. That's nuts. That really is so eight out of ten people living paycheck to paycheck. Just you know if if you miss a paycheck or like you just mentioned you lose your job because of whatever reason pandemic or anything else. It's a huge impact. Not just. I don't know how i'm gonna pay bills for the next couple of weeks but it can like really really set you back. I think it's a perfect setup to talk about. What you just mentioned budgeting a little bit right. A lot of people don't budget so let's say for example. I know what a budget is. You know i've heard the term of. I've seen it on the news talk about but i've never tried it for me and for my family. Can you give us an insight into that. Like where do you even get started. Well sure an you can do a search on the internet for how i do a budget and almost all of them are going to give you the first piece of bad advice that you will ever hear when it comes to budgeting track your expenses for the next month. No you don't have to track your expenses for the next month. You know why because what you do. This month is the exact same thing he did last month. Just pull your bank statements. Look at your bank statements. That will is a great snapshot of your personal financial behavior and what your lifestyle choices are and when you take a look at that then you've got you've got gotta place all of those into a it or as we'll talk a little bit here a of a wall for foundation. There are four things that you have to take care of everything else is fluff and you can create whatever whatever other buckets you wine or i mean flake from an accounting. Were coming perspective. These are lineups okay. So you've got you've got your income and your expenses and then your expenses or all of your line break it down and then it breaks down even further when you file your taxes so every category that you make is a line item but there's four that are super important. Four and a lot of the times people tried to budget everything and they say okay budget down every last dollar and even the even the dollars that you're gonna put into savings if you don't have a good foundation to take care of the basic things that you need to have. It doesn't matter what you put into savings. It doesn't matter what what you spend on clothes. It doesn't excuse me it doesn't matter what what extra expenses and entertainment things that you wanna do. You've got to have these four things. Take care of i and what's interesting about them. Is it lines up. Perfectly with maslow's hierarchy and i'll leave it at that for further on all right so talk to us a little bit more about the four walls right. You mentioned the four walls and you know unite chatted about these a little bit before we go kind of hit the record button here as we were preparing for the show but that i'd never heard that term before the four walls. Can you explain like what those four walls are shirt. A quick back story on on the four walls. Is that if you do any personal financial searching on the internet. You're probably gonna come across the name. Dave ramsey dave ramsey. Oh yes some guy of phenomenal mindset really. Is there some things. Because i'm a business guy. There's some things that i can't entirely subscribe to because for me personally. There is some good debt. Because i'm a business guy. I used other people's money to make more money for my business. So that i can go ahead and potentially hire somebody in sure. Grow the economy that right right so for me. There is some good data. But from dave ramsey's perspective. There's no debt is good so the four walls are the four basic things that you need to survive. And when i say talking about maslow's hierarchy the bottom two levels of maslow's hierarchy pyramid are psychological and safety and that deals with food shelter and essentially money and i clued transportation in that because you need transportation get to and from work sir so the four walls are actually order. I it's it's your housing your food your transportation and then i. I don't like saying catch off for this last one but medical and other absolute necessities. So if you have prescriptions or you've had doctor's appointments or you absolutely have to have daycare 'cause you don't have family or friends that can watch and you have to pay for daycare. Those are absolute necessities. Everything else is extra fluff lifestyle. Spending this is still considered lifestyle spending as well but this is your baseline lifestyle. So when you're going through and figuring everything out these four things need to be taken care of and as you're going through the math and figure out okay. I'm not bringing in enough to cover the us basic four things. you're living to lavishly. You have played into the game of catching up with the joneses. You're trying to find too many influencers and live like them and showcase to the world. What all the amount of debt that you're bringing on is essentially what you're showcasing. You're not living the good life you're actually living a really crappy life. So that's kind of the premise of the four walls. And it when. I didn't really know that term when i first started doing my own budgeting but i realize kay. I've got regular monthly expenses that i always have to pay out have to pay my mortgage. I always have to pay the insurance. I always have to put gas in my car. Food on the table and a couple of medications and and some clothes. Those are the things that always spend money on every single month. What's fantastic about that is because it is you have the ability to look back over the last twelve months and really identify what your lifestyle is just by those expenses alone. Yeah that's that's interesting and it's it's definitely a a i won't say it's that different but it's definitely different than like you said what a lot of folks are gonna find when they do that. Google search for when they do that duck go search right on the internet of. Hey how do. I do a budget you know. What are the first things. I i should consider and and using hierarchy of needs and for those who are familiar with it. This basically just a pyramid that that stacks from bottom to top the needs. Every person has basic needs like markos already talked about psychological needs and then tops off. Self-fulfilment needs achieving your full potential including creative activities. And things like that. But with the four walls i know. They're all critical right but is one more important than the other. Is that the all really really for lack of a better term foundational for your financial health. They all are foundational. But dave will argue. And i kinda back this little bit. Is that if you have a choice between spending money on your electric bill and spending money on food you buy food and you can work with the company to to keep your electricity on food. Would probably the be the highest priority. Next would be your housing so everything that's involved with your housing your mortgage your mortgage. Iran's your utilities and then transportation would be third because there are things that you can do if you're spending too much on transportation. There's things that you can do to to lower those expenses but we can get into that little bit and then obviously medical. Now it's it'd be a toss up then if you've got to take medications or you need food a well. Okay then yeah but but at the same time. If the majority americans being healthy and not needing a whole lot of medications food would be the top priority so food station and then the other necessities sure sure so that so that kind of helps me prioritize as far as you know if i do find myself in a situation like I don't know what i'm going to you know. I only have so much money this month. And i can't pay whatever this one bill. Is you know kind of helps me. Prioritize food housing transportation medical. You know and then if it's more detailed it's down to the really really fine details of a few dollars here versus a few dollars here then. I think that's something you really just sit down like. If it's if it's you by yourself you just make the best decision right an absolutely. If it's you with your family you know you sit down with your spouse and or with your partner and you you talk about it like what do we want to do this month to make ends meet well and and i would say to that the amount of people who actually don't realize where their money's going is phenomenal so he say eighty percents living paycheck to paycheck. I would say one hundred percent of that. Eighty percent have no idea whether money's going and they don't realize that they probably have enough coming in to cover these four walls and then some that the problem comes is when they make all of the additional lifestyle choices and then they're like oh. I don't have enough money for food while it's because they just bought a thousand dollar iphone. So i mean like i know that's really rudimentary example. Because most people are buying their phones on the month to month plan that they put on that they tacked onto your bill which side note really crazy. I was trying to buy a new phone for my wife. No cellphone store will let me pay full price outright for the phone. They forced me to put it onto a monthly plan. Really i is crazy not i was like. I've got nine hundred dollars. That i'm gonna pay you right now and they don't want it. They want it on the monthly plan. So what's funny is so my family. We are an android family. Okay we've always been. We've never gotten into the iphones. You know my daughter. She's a teenager now. So she's kind of leading me toward the iphone but we've always been an android family and for the past few years. I have bought all of our phones directly from samsung. I don't know if you can do that with apple or not if it has to be carrier specific and you have to do over a month to month plan but if i go to samsung dot com. I can just buy that phone outright. I couldn't yeah. I basically i swipe my card more or less you know and you type in my numbers. He and then a couple of days i get new phone on my on my doorstep and so have to remember that for my wife because she's a samsung guy. I'm an iphone. Yeah for sure and so we when we started doing that. We've been with our with our carrier for. I don't know five six seven years now and so we're not really planning on leaving and going to another carrier. But i do get the unlocked phones just in case i need to right and so and so it is really nice to just be able to swipe their credit card and be like. Hey here you go. Here's all the money up front. I don't have to worry about that That money coming out every month right so off that sidetrack for second sorry about that it was just. It was really crazy when i was trying to do that. I couldn't believe that is crazy for phone. So why things that. When when i sit down with somebody and i'm going through this. Is that a lot of people. Don't realize all of the essentially the line items within each of these categories so under housing. There's a couple of lines you've got your mortgage or your rent which includes particularly if you have a mortgage. It also

"Mundine a lawyer who smarts and strategy ensured their victory. Three year old marine was elected president of San Marco in the spring of Eighteen, forty eight though he lacked political experience, his followers felt his legal knowledge would be crucial in establishing a new government. Menino had admirable goals. He insisted that people of all colors and creeds deserved safety and protection and set out to create a new peaceful island city. However his presidential prowess was tested in the spring of eighteen, forty nine when Austria came back to his island state with a vengeance. Led by Marshal Yosef Radetsky, Austria attacked San Marco from both land and sea. By May, Radetski's forces had destroyed the railway that linked the island city to mainland Italy. Send Marco could no longer receive food goods and valuable ammunition said, Marco's residents couldn't escape by land because the rails were destroyed they couldn't escape by sea either because Austrian ships lurked in the waters like sharks, they were sitting ducks primed to endure months of relentless attacks over the summer of eighteen forty nine Austrian forces pummeled San Marco with a reported sixteen, thousand bombs. In addition to the casualties they destroyed centuries of valuable. Cultural artifacts and even without the constant threat of violence. The citizens of San Marco were on their last legs being cut off from the mainland meant there was now a feminine and San Marco soldiers struggled to fight while starving to make matters worse a cholera epidemic ripped through the city infecting the rich and poor alike nobody was safe and then yellow Menino was dealt a personal blow when his wife Teresa got sick to. By, late August, the Austrians knew they were close to a victory. So they got creative and more devious than ever in an attempt to bring the fight home on the twenty second they strapped bombs to balloons and let the wind carry them to San Marco. The bombs dropped didn't do much damage but this was the first precursor to the modern deadly air raids that became popular in wars to come. It became clear to mean that there was simply no way to win after discussing the situation with his assembly menino reached out to Marshall Detsky to discuss surrender. MNUCHIN was still the determined lawyer. He'd always been and he tried for a fair resolution in his initial negotiations. He insisted that Venice have home rule with some autonomy just like he'd argued in eighteen, forty eight but Radetsky refused and insisted that Menino, and his closest political allies be exiled from San Marco. It was a difficult choice but many knew it was the only safe option on August twenty seventh once for Detsky promised to give amnesty to Mundine supporters Menino agreed to Austria's times and prepared to leave his beloved city. The next day was August twenty, eighth eighteen, forty, nine as Australians reclaimed San Marco Menino, and his allies sailed away Menino was headed for Paris with his wife Teresa, but he made it there alone.

"marco" Discussed on Your Last Meal With Rachel Belle
"Marco Collins is a big fan of breakfast best eggs benedict pancakes bacon and eggs. But how did those foods become the designated breakfast foods. We'd all kinds of things for lunch and dinner but breakfast purpose is entirely. Its own thing my whole life. I've been hearing you know. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I wanted to know where that came from because when I started looking around it's just a marketing scheme right yeah. It was the whole first generation of people who invented breakfast cereals. That's Bala he's a history. Professor who specializes specializes in food history at the University of Pacific in California. He says before the fifteenth century people didn't really eat breakfast and when they started to they ate the same foods they ate for dinner. You know people used to eat leftovers from the last day or some bread and I think as people increasingly began to work in places is where they didn't live convenience became a real matter and the perception that this stuff was healthy. And you needed it to fortify you. For the day was entirely a marketing scheme. You can look at the stuff. Throughout the twentieth century. They told us was healthy to eat. Spinach and Popeye himself was invented by the spinach. Marketing Board you know and the I did. You should drink orange juice first thing in the morning while the Orange Marketing Board figured out that so I would take much of twentieth century nutritional advice with with a grain of salt because it was all promoted by people trying to sell you the stuff in nineteen forty four general mills launched a huge ad campaign for grape nuts. The tagline was eat. A good breakfast do a better job and the radio. ADS said nutrition. Experts say breakfast is the most important meal of the day a Ha- that is where it came from so people made shirt eat breakfast and they often ate cereal because they were told it was healthy and it used to be back when it was first invented. At least that was the intention back in the day John Harvey Kellogg and his brother William Keith. Kellogg were running the sanitarium in Battle Creek Michigan. And that's where where the seventh day adventist church was also originated. That's culinary historian. Heather aren't Anderson author of breakfast a history. The Kellogg's were seventh day adventist S.. Who believed that health was connected to righteousness Dr John Harvey Kellogg who was a disciple of Sylvester Graham inventor of the original healthy Graham cracker issued issued caffeine alcohol spicy foods? Sugar White bread meat. Graham and Kellogg believed masturbation was the greatest evil and eating healthy bland foods and only whole grains would quench all sexual desire and they would get these really wealthy clients who would kind of come to do like the predecessor. Assessor of like Hashtag clean eating and they'd come stay at these sanitary which acquaint like more strict versions of day. Spas where where you go and get on this clean Diet Kinda hit the reset button on your body. Do all these cold water baths and exercise regimes. And you know weird enema. Does it was all part of this program that wealthy people would go subscribe to you and one day the Killa guys were in the kitchen cooking some cereal and had to run off when they got back they realize they had left the stove on and so the the cereal which had started out Moshe. Was this really weird. Hard substance substance and there was so much product. They didn't want to waste it so they thought they would try to figure out what they could do with it. And so they spread it out onto these rollers enrolled into these very aretha sheets and it Kinda broke up and crumbled and so they fed it to the people and we'll staying at the sanitarium and they liked it. And so the Kellogg boys these were like onto something. The problem was that the corn and a lot of grains they go rancid so fast because of the fat content. So William William Keith. Kellogg suggested that they add some sugar and salt to it to act as a preservative but John Harvey Kellogg was adamantly opposed to that. He didn't WanNa add any preservatives. He wanted to be very healthy and low sugar low salt and so they really could not see eye-to-eye on this at all and it ended up causing this permanent fraternal rift. That they never mended. Will Keith Kellogg went on to start the Kellogg's company which you know we know of. Is the cereal company today today. And then John Harvey Kellogg State of the Sanitarium and and it's funny because the there is so much sugar in Kellogg's cereal products and not even just the kid cereals but cornflakes flakes are so high in sugar that you can't get them using your wick benefits because they exceed the maximum sugar allowance to be covered by women infants and children benefits. What's that first serial invented the kelloggs cornflakes back in eighteen? Ninety four and it was dry and bland just the way they wanted it to be and it had to be soaked. acton milk to become edible but it really caught on and by nineteen o three there were one hundred cereal companies in Kellogg's town of Battle Creek but it wasn't until nineteen twenty eight that will keith. Kellogg had his next big hit. That is when he perfected rice krispies and by the Nineteen Forty S. When women started going off to work while the men went to war they they needed a way to easily feed their children and the ads pointed women too cold cereal? This started the whole culture of eating process. Quick to prepare breakfast in America so I think most of us have not all of us have grown up thinking. Cereal is totally normal breakfast but if you think about it it's not actually a great way to start the day it's just pure carbs and sugar. There's no protein to keep you fall. There's nothing to feed. He'd your brain. It's basically desert or like having the entire breadbasket when you go out to dinner but the cereal companies have conned into thinking. It's a good healthy healthy breakfast if I could have one take home lesson for your listeners. Is that they should explore the idea of having super breakfast. I'm team soup when it comes to weird breakfast foods. Tell me more well besides just puzzle. They would just a great hangover cure fuzz. Great Hangover Cure fuzz. One of those things you can just this get nine in the morning here in Portland Oregon All the Vietnamese restaurants opened early. And it's usually I see like little old men eating FAA at nine in the morning and and so I started kind of getting my head around this idea having breakfast soup and now it's like pretty much my most standard. You know breakfast choice. I mean we awesome spicy soup. Kimchi stew for some noodle soup. And I just feel good all day like hydrates you because Ken said exactly the same thing I went went for about three years eating noodle soup for breakfast and got a book out of that but it was every single day I would make a different noodle soup but I stopped that just because I got kind of bored with it so usually what I'll I do. I would say maybe fifty percent of the time. I eat pizza for breakfast which I make on the spot. Sometimes they don't have a lot of time. I'll use a flour tortilla and put cheese on it and sometimes tuna or ham or that stables or something like that. It's just wonderful for breakfast so you will bake a fresh pizza in the morning for breakfast. Yeah this morning I didn't. I actually had only because I had a decent baguette from the bay area. You probably know acme bread and it had found some duck pattase so I had hatay and cheese and all of for breakfast. This morning was good. I am one hundred percent team can and heather. I have always preferred eat leftovers for breakfast. Like Leftover Spaghetti or leftover. Chinese food is the fast but our culture tells us we're supposed to eat eggs and bacon toast and cereal for breakfast because that is a normal thing to eat. But it's actually an American thing. It's not a human woman thing in Japan. The traditional breakfast bread is me so souped rice fish pickles in Israel. Typical breakfast is cheese and a chop salad. Some smoke smoked fish. Maybe some shock Shuka and the fact that we're conditioned to eat three meals a day with also invented by our culture and we think it's physiologically necessary also. We think you can't be healthy in function. Unless you have something for breakfast you can train your body to do anything I think in terms of like evolution. We'd probably probably didn't eat regular meals for hunters and gatherers. Whenever they had sued at hand or hunted something in captured it? They ate a lot and then they'd probably fasted for for for days and whether it's necessarily healthier foods or not but we certainly can go a long much longer than we think with food where we're conditioned socially to think. Oh I'm hungry angry because it's lunchtime and they better get something that's a good point. He never thought about that before. Like the ancient man was not snacking probably or they. He was snacking all the time time that was having little nibbles here and there. And that's another argument that hunters and gathers mostly gathered. They don't come except on rare occasions. I'll get a big kill. But they'll the eating berries and nuts little than plants that they gather all throughout the day. Let's get back to our breakfast. Boy Mr Marco Collins Marco has made a name for himself in nineties grunge music and as much as he loves reminiscing about that time. He's been less than enthusiastic to take jobs that. Focus focus exclusively on that so he's not really interested in hosting your ninety nine show or whatever you WANNA call it at key expe- he can once again play whatever he wants. and Are you glad to be a little bit divorce from all of the ninety stuff that you're always associated Ma'am I am.

"Collins what would your last meal be my last meal. I'm a huge fan of eggs benedict. So my last meal would be eggs benedict with a slice of tomato added and fantastic holiday. Where do you go? Where do you like glows? That's my favorite eggs benedict in the city. Eddie is close and you you know. They kind of image themselves as just a dumpy little diner but you go in there and that food is amazing. You know the eggs he's benedict. I have a running date with a buddy that we just meet their like once a week and have eggs benedict. It's fantastic. It's just the holiday is like really lemony. It's just it's wonderful. I like you don't pronounce the s on the on your so fraud holidays. I don't know that dumb Americans call. That's we cut honky colleague. Dave I go to close.

Sure I like Hashbrowns hashbrowns is my thing but that's not necessary sometimes whole do fruit like a little bit of fruit. So you said in. You're not to me. That eggs benedict is really important to you. Why it's important to me because first of all I'm a breakfast guy? It's like the perfect breakfast. You get some veggies veggies in there. It's a little fattening with the the holidays. But I don't know it just does it for me. I feel like I can eat eggs benedict anytime of the day. Not and not just a breakfast thing. It's like breakfast dressed up a little bit with a little cloak made a holiday. Have you ever made it at home because it taking it every day right the whole in days right get it right either way. Yeah just can't. It's really hard to make. Good holidays and poached eggs hard to do to kind of fall apart in the water right right better at that though. You gotTa have a little bit of a circle a world pool going in the boiling water and then you sort of just dropped the egg slowly. It's become a science for me. I'm pretty good at that part when you were a kid. Where you into breakfast at dinner yes? I'm into breakfast dinner enter down. I love breakfast. pancakes blueberry pancakes.

Is it worth the hype. It's fantastic and the reason it's fantastic is. The chicken is super moist. You know I was thinking of the Howell. Why is this getting so much buzz like? It's just fast food justice. Yes just fried fast food and they don't overcook the chicken so the chicken is super voice but the key to the whole thing are the pickles. Plus it's a big hunk of chicken you know and they have these brioche rolls that they use news. It's really kind of fancy I gotta get in there man. I was hard. I wasn't going because of the lions but now it's kind of children are a little dope. It has ensured that at all go in the morning. Go for lunch only because at dinner. They're normally out. They get shipments every single day. The only reason I know this is because I've talked to one of the employees there. That'll that'll do about the chicken sandwich because the hype and you make friends with everybody every right. I'm the guy that takes. The bus talks to everybody do. Do you tend to follow food trends. Because that's kind of a little trendy thing right now but I'll tell you what I have not jumped into pokey. I knew you were GONNA say that. That's so funny. I had a feeling you're going to say that there's a place across the street and I love Sushi. And everybody's like why haven't you done pokey love poke and I think it's just I need somebody to hold the hand with it. Yeah walk me in there. Tell me what I'm eating. There's a lot more ingredients in pokey. I went in that place for the first time last week and they were playing Christmas music sick. You know because it was Christmas time they were playing that. We're we're all that dog one and I was like I don't know if I trust this place like do you eat. Poke it a place. That's playing dog. UGH Barking Christmas music. God you're killing me.

It's like you take one step out of the city and it's just a landfill a garbage dump of stuff but it was worth it for killing the earth the and driving my car a little bit farther than I usually would for fast food. That chicken sandwich is so good. I am the billionth person to say it. But you know what I I am the billionth person to say it it Super Juicy Jacuzzi that's me. It's super juicy. It's crispy it's a big fat piece of meat. And you know when you see a commercial for fast food or you see the picture of the Burger you're about to get. And then it shows up on the trade. It's like squashed squashed and flatten tiny. This is not that it looks just like the picture. Totally worth the hype just to sum it up. What are the kids say? T- YSL T.. I I'm not a cool youth.

He wants eggs benedict with a slice of grilled tomato from glows a diner in Seattle's Capitol Capitol Hill neighborhood. Blows is an institution open since nineteen eighty-seven which doesn't sound like that long ago. Oh but in Seattle that is the equivalent of two hundred years old. It's a tiny little no-frills spot on a busy street in the heart of the Capitol Hill neighborhood. There is often a line nine sneaking down the street and global bills. Marco's ultimate wish. You can get breakfast anytime you want. Because they only serve breakfast on the weekdays they're open seven to three and then on the weekends we open at twelve. A one eight am on Saturday morning. I guess you would call so it and then we stay at midnight and then we stay open until four. PM working an overnight diner that opens at midnight. That's a whole different scene than when you're open seven seven. Am to three PM so stupid. Certain people on that shift or do you have to have a certain kind of personality to deal with all the people. Yes kind of. There's a lot more Rowdy behaviour that takes place on the night shift More of the crazy stories happen on the night shift. There's a lot more bodily fluids that it ended on the night shift So you have to have some crew with a strong stomach clean that that is owner and Cook Julie. Rice men glow serves up a pretty classic diner menu there scrambles rambles Omelettes. pancakes and French toast and five variations of eggs benedict. You can have either. The Classic Ham Avocado which is the X. Californian Ex Florentine which is with Spinach Spinach X. Blackstone which is sauteed spinach and Bacon and the smoked salmon. Nick which speaks for right. So all of the bennies come with a slice of grilled tomato for a little bit of assiduity says and they're homemade holidays or marco likes to say holiday. How you make holidays and you're so good it's just really about that arm effort because you just got a whisk it forever and I think a lot of people give up early and you end up? Having thin hollandaise sauce. Julie says some places US instant holidays from powder or from a mix but it glows. They make everything from scratch. Holidays is a classic mother's mother sauce. It's just melted butter. Ideally clarified butter slowly. Whisked into egg yolks and then hit some salt and a squeeze of Lemon for Tang and brightness S.. The trick is getting it to a modified just right and keeping it at the right temperature. So the sauce doesn't break. Julie says twenty percent of glow sales come from Benedict's index. It is definitely a top favorite kids. You know they usually come in. They order pancakes and There was this kid that came in one time and he couldn't have been more than six ordered the benedict and we all were just back there in awe of this little tiny person just straight up ordering a benedict and then that kid came up to the counter.
