"We know that chemicals can disrupt thyroid function in the human body, and that that thyroid function is crucial for a child's brain development. I used to be trained as a pediatrician. Teo Check a child's newborn blood spot. And we still do that to make sure that they're thyroid levels don't require immediate treatment. But now we know that Thyroid hormone during pregnancy can be terribly important for a child's brain development. We know that the baby doesn't make it warm until about a second trimester of pregnancy. So Mom's thyroid hormone function is disrupted. Even To a subtle degree beyond the ability to detect it on a clinical test by these chemicals that you can produce outcomes like Lost like you. Even a pH. D in autism, clinically significant outcomes. Science here is a little thinner simply because they're harder to study 88 times is not as common as let's say. Oh, it's not an easy he can't You don't find a d h d in the entire population to find it in one of every 10 or so, and that can make it harder to study in a large population that you need to identify the kids who have a d h D and the kids that don't But what little we know suggest, in particular strong evidence for effects of pesticides and brilliant flame retardants on the developing brain, and one of the ways that brain development can unravel is for attention Deficit hyperactivity disorder. Sonar work. We have also attributed A substantial amount of a D h d in the United States to these endocrine disrupting chemicals. Heard the results and teach chemicals cause reversible and we help Well, it's important, especially important to prevent these exposures during pregnancy. But as I said earlier There's a lot you Khun do now to reduce your exposure to these chemicals that can prevent disease in the long term. So no, not all is lost. The reality is that they're safe and simple steps we can do to limit these exposures that contribute. To disease and have really benefits. For people's lives in the here and the now such as well. Avoiding canned food consumption is straightforward way to reduce your businessman. All exposure, saying no to that thermal paper receipt, So thermal paper receipts have a coding. That's based in channels these days, because that's what we used to replace the old style. Ah, typewriter kind of entry that Would print on in supermarkets and other places. But now we know that the thermal paper receipt coatings can get on your skin and ultimately absorbed directly into the human body that way. In addition, I hate to make people self conscious. We all have and the mouth behaviors. Kids, especially And so in so far as you touched that receipt And touch faiths or touch your mouth. You ultimately passed the funnels into your body. As a result, so there's really eat website that describe these issues called BP, A dash free got me on this even gone viral these days and The good news for that is that many supermarket chains are catching on and realizing that they actually need to offer people electronic receipts. So we're almost in a situation where the electronic receipts are pushing away and phasing out the old school. Thermal paper receipts that used to be so common California just actually proposed legislation. To require That supermarket offer. Of these electronic receipts to everyone, and that is a really good step forward towards eliminating this concern to begin with. What Rose should government playing as opposed to what role is government playing in this whole issue? Well, clearly, there's a place for government to limit these exposures and We've Talked already about the benefits of getting let out of gasoline and painting that ultimately was through federal regulatory action. We also seen huge benefit from proactive intervention by the government. On endocrine, disrupting chemicals so back in 2000 EPA. Negotiated a phase out. Actually banned quite frankly, uh to pesticides. In household use. A pair of posting day is enough. And it so happened that a study at Columbia University in New York was Looking at a population of pregnant women and Children in neighborhoods where they were spraying these chemicals to prevent on munching creatures and critters from causing trouble. Hand. So they had a natural experiment in which they had higher exposed Children, followed by lower those Children. And when they measured levels of the chlorpyrifos in baby's cord blood Before and compared them tow after the band. They saw a huge drop offs in the levels of chlorpyrifos. And then before the van, they showed effects of the cop. You're focused on a child heads from friends as those other birth outcomes, But they couldn't find those same relationships after the band suggesting that there was a real benefit of proactive About policy action. So this is to say. But there are benefits. Government can really do good things for people and protect them, even though you might not see it or feel it. I'm here. And the now might be concerned about the economic consequences. But there are huge economic benefits to be gained through this kind of proactive prevention. In the meantime, we all can take station simple steps. To prevent these exposures in the first place now. Most of what I talked about so far are things you can do in their home to reduce exposure. But Or many other places where we're exposed to these chemicals in our workplaces in our schools in our subways and our buses. And you might get sad and think that that's not an environment that we can change. But it's quite the opposite, actually, um School systems have changed their cleaning product supplies because Employees have gotten together and raised concerns. Even just asking What exposures? Are in a workplace can just start the conversation. And the reality is that if one major manufactured in major employer insists on products free of a particular chemical concerned they have they have such huge market share. That they can shift the behavior. Of a particular manufacturer. Such that It helps everyone. So the reality here is that we don't have to wait on government search Sure, Government has a role. But there are benefits where we all been together and speak out. On behalf of decision doesn't have to put people at risk. For losing their jobs or affecting company's bottom line. And you're listening to W. Sunday here on 94. W I b l Sports radio.

Drive-in movie theaters making a comeback amid coronavirus pandemic
"Has sure been a long time, since most of us have been to a movie theater, at least the ones indoors with the big seats on the popcorn. But the nation's nearly 330 drive in movie theaters are making a comeback with pandemic precautions. Pushing their popularity has always been my dream to like, go to a drive in and like A diner and now my tension, And it's that sense of nostalgia that Dr Solomon whose father own movie theatres as well, he grew up during the Depression, and that was a great escape from people was to go see films. That's a little bit of what it's gonna be for people now is to come out on escape, a silver lining found On the silver screen
"The any AC national monument and preserve gets the fewest visitors of any national park, and it boasts no rangers. No trails and no waiting in line. All the more reason Christopher Solomon went out of his way to hike a few summers ago. Chris, welcome great to be here. Is this actually a national park or what's the technicality they're. Technically Rick any act check national. Monument and preserve is its name and it. It is not a national park, but it is the least visited unit of the four hundred and one properties in the national park system, so nobody goes there white. Why do they even bother thinking of it? As part of the system you, you'd think that the least visited might be something like the Martin Van Buren national birthplace right, but no It's Antioch Chat in two. Thousand Twelve Anne check had nineteen visitors last year might have picked up to a hundred or so and you were there with how? How many people in your party three of us three of us now? Where is it and how do you get? There visualizes for me if you look at the map of Alaska Alaska? has this big tale that kind of frozen, fourteen hundred mile tail, that wags westward at come shotgun, and that's the Aleutian islands and the base of that tail is the Alaska Peninsula, and that's where any act check. You know if I wanted to go there next week. Where would I fly? What I just rent a car and drive there, or how'd I get that so one of the reasons rick? Not, very popular is it's hard to get to from Seattle where I live. It took US three flights to anchorage to King Salmon to Port Heiden which is just an airstrip built for World War Two in the middle of nowhere on the Bering Sea and then we backed packed with sixty five pound packs for twenty two miles to reach the centerpiece of the the. The National Monument, which is a gorgeous volcanic crater, so ease of access is not one of its selling points. Is it worth the trouble? Yeah, I was thinking about this on the drive over here and how to summarize it. I have had the good fortune to travel all over the world as a travel writer, I was with a photographer who shoots pictures all over. Over the world and beautiful places we agreed we'd never seen a place as unique as okay. How can you write in? Your article is just gorgeous about this that it was mind-bending. Lee Gorgeous is the desolation that's part of it, or what makes it better than just going to any national park, so maybe to convey what it's like I need to tell you just. Just a little bit about its geologic in human history, which is more interesting than it sounds about the time. The Egyptians were ruling the world. A seven thousand foot volcano blew its top with a with a force of ten thousand nuclear bombs ruined the bigger eruptions we we know of, and then the volcano collapsed on itself and created a crater that could swallow Manhattan. That crater filled with water, so it looked like crater lake national park, then that lake blew out in his biblical flood in over the next couple thousand years, this lost worlds was sort of created inside that crater, and it just went kind of unnoticed, except for the native peoples for thousands of years until nineteen thirty, when this man called the glacier priests arrived, and the Glacier priest was father, Bernard, how he's one of these Jesuit priests who was cut from the old cloth, swashbuckling sort of Jesuits, and he, he barnstorm all over the forty-ninth state, having these wild adventures by Bush plane. Plane by dog sled is write ups win the Saturday Evening Post and the National Geographic and in nineteen thirty, he wrote about visiting Antioch Check, and he described it as paradise found this this lost world where orchids bloomed in the volcanically warmed soil, and the rabbits were gigantic, and they came up and walked right up to his crew, which was a bunch of the Santa Clara football players, and and they felt bad killing them to eat them, but they did anyway. Did you read his writing the in preparation for your trip so I? Did I read about his writings about the great? Great Moon Crater of the earth called it, and then what happened is he wanted to go back the next year nineteen, thirty one and any act check blew up again, and he goes back and talks about it no longer in these Milton, s Kinda paradise found terms, but but in this dante-esque hellish terms describes himself peering into this blackened inferno, and then they go into the crater a couple months after it's blown up again, and they nearly die of poisonous gasses, and they're, and they're put their beans on a funeral and their beans Boileau, and they shove a thermometer in the ground. Ground thermometer explodes, and it's just this hellish wild landscape. That's the setting we go back eight years later. Just kinda see what it's like, and a lot of the soot has washed off from that nineteen thirty one explosion, but it has this kind of Sier Flinty beauty desolation sublime.

"solomon" Discussed on Magnify Him Together
"My name is Tim Young. And you might recognize my voice. I'm usually on the Essential Bible studies podcast, but have been invited to come over here and to talk to you teens about a very important subject that is a study of the Song of Solomon. Now. In my opinion, the Song of Solomon is the most difficult book in the Bible. It uses this deep poetical language. It's like trying to understand Shakespeare On top of that, there's no context about win or why it was written. At least the book of revelation has that. On top of it all it becomes obvious that there are all these different speakers, but sometimes it's not clear who is doing the talking. And because of this are numerous different viewpoints on the book with all sorts of fanciful interpretations. So while the Song of Solomon is the most difficult book of the Bible. I also believe it is one of the most important books of the Bible for young people to understand in a practical sense. And by practical, I mean looking at the song of Solomon..
"solomon" Discussed on The Candid Frame
"Thanks for doing this guys for the last couple of weeks I have been thinking about what role I. wanted the show to play in terms of the dialogue that's happening. With this and I thought it was better than me. Sort of giving voice to it myself that it be a much better to have a dialogue with people is one of the things. I was realizing over the last two weeks outside of my own house. Old I really haven't discussed this stuff in. You know my wife and I have talked about how `bout it, but I really hadn't. Beyond that really. Considered? What kind of conversations I? I would want to have with people outside of my own home. My own faith and I think it is important dialogue to have especially. Amongst photographers photography are actually documenting. What's happening right now, but it will also lived the experience of being. Covering this. Just, just briefly I I experienced the LA riots back in I think it was ninety to ninety one. And one of the things and I grew up in that neighborhood I grow near arts in Normandy probably about two miles. My family's home is is there. And one of the things that I remember very vividly. Besides all the cast that was happening is the presence of a lot of photographers in those communities. Not just the photo journalist, but a lot of people who were just photographing independently. One of the things that really bothered me about that. Is that a lot of those people had never come to the community photographic before. That, many of them would not come back afterwards. And then later on when I would look at portfolios. <hes> like six months to a year later I would see images. That were made during the riot. But they were without any sort of context or any sort of greater egg relation of what had happened what led to those events happening? Changing and that's spurred me to work on a project. That I've been working on now for thirty years on downtown Los Angeles largely because I felt like at the time. This is years before it became what it is now in terms of gentrification, but it was a part of Los Angeles I had grown up in and I felt that had been dismissed to a great degree and I just wanted to. Use My camera to sort of illustrate. What I felt was beautiful, interesting about a part of Los Angeles that was fiving and important to a minority community here in Los Angeles now it's become gentrified in now. It's completely at very very different thing, but as I see the events of the last couple of weeks, I have thought very much the same thing. You're saying all these people going out and making photographs. And I just felt like you know us as photographers regardless of race. We have to think about. Not just the kinds of pictures that we make, but those pictures are intended for. And the impact it can have especially if those of us who are out there. Making photographs are not working journalists and I just wanted to have a dialogue with both of you. Because you guys are both working photographers on the east, coast. Photographing these events and Photographing. Events. Not only American society with Black Cultural Society before going to continue doing this. And I just to hear I your own personal. How you are both Alliott. Both are personally experiencing these events. And then we can get into much greater conversation in terms of the role of photography now and going forward, cherise, I think you can take since you've actually been out in a failed. Covering summit is now well I have to say first and foremost as a black woman have a personal stake in experience with what's going on. I have my personal stories of you know experiencing racism. I can remember as far back as I was in third grade. The was third grade when I I was called a nigger. From there I became more aware of that in. It has carried through to the woman. I am today. <hes> I've had experiences of being stopped. While driving my car in questioned, whose car is this where you going? Where do you live, you know? At broke. No Laws I've had experiences of male male family members and friends who have had violent interactions so <hes> having that personal story it gives me a perspective when I go in and I'm actually covering the current the current things that are going on now with the protest in the demonstrations that are happening all over. ME. What I will say is this time it feels different of cupboard, protests and things before, but this time it feels like the youth are really what what I've seen. What I've noticed is the youth are more engaged in their on fire in their serious <hes>. You can see that there are so many young people out there. In their organized they have an agenda. They have action items. And they're calling for certain things to be done or they will continue. With the protests with the work that feels very different, because it's a stronger a stronger voice now the other thing I'm seeing that's different out there are. There are more white people out there this time. Whereas before it was mostly black, people who were calling you know saying. Stop doing this to me. And calling for change now you have white youth who were out there as well as I saw other people, too, but like I said it's been mostly like a younger movement in terms of who are really out there in the numbers with them. Having what experience yesterday was. They have printed out their agenda and these action items in. They've given it to their legislative representatives. They're calling them. They're following up, so that's been probably like the biggest thing I've seen. Is that the youth are more engaged which. May Have Time In. They're not giving up in there, not scared <hes>. That's the other thing you know. They're not scared to voice the problems that they see. They're not. To demand for these changes. This time around of being closer to home and I've been watching. Some of my friends out. There believe covering this protest top to bottom in light was such a high level of qualities amazing. Is One of those things where. Fast, forward, twenty thirty forty years and twenty twenty is in the history books. Would be proud to say that I know a lot of top officials. Who when documenting this time in history? So I've been close to home, you know I have a five year old son, and for me. The question of should I be out there? Covering this or should I be here covering my son? and. That's been a big question mark throughout the last week and a half when. The protests began and last night was the first night that. You know told my wife I'm going to go out there. It will fuel events happening in picked when I was close to home in. Backed up mcgeer? Wait now and by the time I got is the crowd had already dispersed. I was online trying to figure out if there was something else happening now close enough that I can get to. And the social media feeds had updated at that time so I, just said all right. Let me just go home. When I got home I started. Seeing all feeds, update and I just. decided to stay home, but you know my wife was. Worried rightfully so I would have been choosing to go out after the curfew. Dowse set in New York, which means that. Just, walk into my car I. could have just been arrested. Just welcome to the car or driving Cardin I'm seeing footage of police officers. Yanking people out of the car the <unk> after curfew, so those are the things that you ought. To Take into consideration and you know I. didn't grow was father's radio home so the last thing I wanna do is put myself in this situation where I'm not at home for my son so. I do know that they are the ways that we can be protesting that we can't be revolutionizing. You know it's not just a one-size-fits-all type of situation you know on. We can revolutionize by reading informing ourselves equipment ourselves with enough knowledge and information today. The was not pulled over is anymore. Re can right you know <hes> contribute with words you know. I'm seeing a lot of photographers being jerked around with the licensing so so so bringing awareness to how can properly get business stuff to together Sodano? Getting jerked and we get the proper value for all photos does a lot of different ways that we can contribute to this protest without being in front

They have action items. And they're calling for certain things to be done or they will continue. With the protests with the work that feels very different, because it's a stronger a stronger voice now the other thing I'm seeing that's different out there are. There are more white people out there this time. Whereas before it was mostly black, people who were calling you know saying. Stop doing this to me. And calling for change now you have white youth who were out there as well as I saw other people, too, but like I said it's been mostly like a younger movement in terms of who are really out there in the numbers with them. Having what experience yesterday was. They have printed out their agenda and these action items in. They've given it to their legislative representatives. They're calling them. They're following up, so that's been probably like the biggest thing I've seen. Is that the youth are more engaged which. May Have Time In. They're not giving up in there, not scared That's the other thing you know. They're not scared to voice the problems that they see. They're not. To demand for these changes. This time around of being closer to home and I've been watching. Some of my friends out. There believe covering this protest top to bottom in light was such a high level of qualities amazing. Is One of those things where. Fast, forward, twenty thirty forty years and twenty twenty is in the history books. Would be proud to say that I know a lot of top officials. Who when documenting this time in history? So I've been close to home, you know I have a five year old son, and for me. The question of should I be out there? Covering this or should I be here covering my son? and. That's been a big question mark throughout the last week and a half when. The protests began and last night was the first night that. You know told my wife I'm going to go out there. It will fuel events happening in picked when I was close to home in. Backed up mcgeer? Wait now and by the time I got is the crowd had already dispersed. I was online trying to figure out if there was something else happening now close enough that I can get to. And the social media feeds had updated at that time so I, just said all right. Let me just go home. When I got home I started. Seeing all feeds, update and I just. decided to stay home, but you know my wife was. Worried rightfully so I would have been choosing to go out after the curfew. Dowse set in New York, which means that. Just, walk into my car I. could have just been arrested. Just welcome to the car or driving Cardin I'm seeing footage of police officers. Yanking people out of the car the after curfew, so those are the things that you ought. To Take into consideration and you know I. didn't grow was father's radio home so the last thing I wanna do is put myself in this situation where I'm not at home for my son so. I do know that they are the ways that we can be protesting that we can't be revolutionizing. You know it's not just a one-size-fits-all type of situation you know on. We can revolutionize by reading informing ourselves equipment ourselves with enough knowledge and information today. The was not pulled over is anymore. Re can right you know contribute with words you know. I'm seeing a lot of photographers being jerked around with the licensing so so so bringing awareness to how can properly get business stuff to together Sodano? Getting jerked and we get the proper value for all photos does a lot of different ways that we can contribute to this protest without being in front

Wisconsin Supreme Court strikes down Wisconsin's stay-at-home order that closed businesses to limit spread of coronavirus
"A piece of audio from a state Supreme Court justice this was from esquire magazine in discussing the governor's order to stay at home the assistant Attorney General Colin Ross appeared to be rethinking his career choice Bradley the Supreme Court justice went full on Glenn Beck never go full on Glenn back this is what the press called full on Glenn back listen to this judge my question for you is where in the constitution to the people of Wisconsin confer a sorority on the singles on elected cabinet secretary to compel almost six million people to stay at home and close their businesses and face imprisonment if they don't comply with no input from the legislature without the consent of the people isn't it the very definition of tyranny for one person to order people to be imprisoned for going to work among other ordinarily lawful activities where does the constitution say that's permissible council one of the bravest guys and the guy who appointed her to the Supreme Court successful governor economic education healthcare reformer Scott Walker joins us now governor how are you Sir Eglin even better today because of the Supreme Court yesterday sure okay so the Supreme Court yesterday in Wisconsin struck down the stay at home order what does that mean well there was no stay so it means technically anyone anywhere in the state of Wisconsin could be opened the one caveat to that is welcome to the home rule states so there are still the ability of local jurisdiction so a handful of communities city Milwaukee city of R. we're seeing a Dane county or state capitals at all very Liberal Democrat areas there governor should be there mayors and or account executives issued similar orders to what the governor's administration will done but for everybody else it means technically any retail establishment or whatever's open last night around the state there are other places out there although and I heard the tail end of year your last segment in the end the governor I've said for weeks the government can get out of the way but ultimately the market will determine when businesses reopen when employees feel safe to come back in when the when customers ultimately come back as well but it the first step is getting the government out of the way so Z. the get the new governor the guy who I think replaced you it had issued the stay at home order he said yesterday last night on CNN this puts our state in the chaos now we have no plan no protections for the people when you have more people in a small space I don't care if it's bars restaurants or the home you're going to be able to spread the virus today thanks to the Republican legislators convinced for Supreme Court justices not to look at the law but look at their political careers I guess it's a bad day for Wisconsin because now it's the wild west commented when it's it's like it's like they've suspended common sense not only in his statement but not others across the country we see this over and over again we've been operating for nearly two months now with the threat of this coronavirus in every time anyone goes in a grocery store every time someone goes into a pharmacy every time someone goes to the hardware store every time someone shows up in a in a manufacturing plant that is deemed essential by the government they've been able to do that overwhelmingly across the country safely so to me it just defies common sense that now certainly since the so called nonessential businesses can open finally because those justices actually upheld the law they did exactly opposite what he said they actually upheld the law now does that mean the people who've been operating safe we're certainly going to go crazy and and not use the same watching the done before of course not you know here here's here's the thing first of all I think you guys had the election when every but when nobody knew what was gonna happen and with that it shows that no there was no spread to from you guys holding L. holding the election which quite honestly at the time I would have found surprising but there was no problem for holding the election yeah I guess the the governor didn't learn his lesson from that one and when did we go from a let's not overwhelm the system let's not overwhelm hospitals and doctors and the nurses let's flatten the curve to nobody's going out until everybody is safe yeah it it's it's the flat occur versus now we have to find a cure before anyone can set foot out there the logic I went back and looked two months ago yesterday I wrote a piece on Facebook about how we need to be rational we needed to follow the guidelines we probably shouldn't have Dick's sporting events or concerts for awhile so we could figure this out but that we could do these things without shutting down the economy we just had to use our common sense we had to be purposeful interactions to make sure we're safe the same is true today over two months we flatten the curve but do you still have government officials whose immediately seem like they're hiding under their beds open a guide somehow this will just go away it's not going away it's not going to change anytime soon and if we don't win this year register Connie devastate but think of all the people across America who missed out on doctor's visits in clinics and other checkups who missed out on early detection I mean this is literally a life threatening issue even when it comes to re opening the economy so governor do you really believe that these people are hiding under their beds or is there something else involved I mean there is we have to balance things and that is what a leader does he gets advice from the FAO cheese and they save Valjean just tell me about the health effects and then somebody else has to advise is didn't tell me just about the economic effects and then I have to make choices as a leader on what we do we are now looking at a group of people in Washington and it seems to be falling on party lines that they for some reason we just don't want to open the economy and no one is talking about the deadly effects of America going down the drain or going into a deep depression not only the affects financially but the effects of health and welfare all over the globe millions could die because we go down it even amazing the group that are not aligned with that don't normally reference but even a United Nations report recently just this week showed that grave concerns about massive I mean we're talking crippling poverty around the world because of the economic effects here in their point was that this will actually have a much larger devastating impact on the Taliban casualties because of malnutrition because of the depression because of suicide because of all sorts of issues I think it's a combination of summer parade and some have an agenda when I look at Nancy Pelosi's and we could talk all day about her ridiculous three trillion dollar bill that's out there but one of the things I think's been ignored about what you did put out this week is they've got a provision that would extend the federal unemployment enhanced benefits till January one that tells me Democrats believe our whole some have an agenda that they want the economy not to open until after the start of the year which conveniently happens to be after the presidential election I I got to say if you're an American not a Republican not a Democrat now to conserve not a liberal but Americans that should scare the crap idea we should be doing something about it so do you think that the American people are I mean I think that my father used to say there is no such thing as bad it doesn't it nothing is bad it's depends on how you react to it that will make it a bad thing in your life for good thing you can go to prison for robbing a bank that's not bad that is something that you could use now to reforge yourself and and become better the corona virus I think has helped a lot of people get perspective on their life it is showing us that we need family and shows us that you know this arguing back and forth with the politics is really the Washington doesn't have the power we have the power we could use this to wake up on the bill of rights etcetera etcetera or we will allow it to destroy us do you think the American people are waking up on both sides of the aisle and saying wait a minute wait a minute these essential bill of rights liberties are really important I I do have some more slowly than others but but I do think they're waking up yesterday's ruling in the Wisconsin Supreme Court was a good step in the right direction because as I said after the ruling came out you know though okay holding the rule of law is important even in an emergency it's an important event and I'm optimistic it as frustrated as I am as as challenging as times are I think about American particular country that started out in defeating the greatest military power at the time who overcame a civil war that would have torn apart just to any other country in the world you ever came to me two world wars took on nine eleven were Americans and were country based on freedom and as long as we cherish those freedoms and liberties even in times like this I have no doubt we can overcome anything the part of that means of free will and the ability to engage in free enterprise that's something that I think it's fundamentally a part of who we are it's what king Solomon talked about finding joy in your labor I often say nobody signed by my high school yearbook saying good luck becoming it depend on the government we all no matter who we can where we come from what we look like we all in our hearts we want to work we want to find join our labor we need to get the government on lease and get it out of the way so that we can go back to work and and restore

U.S. moves to drop case against Trump ex-adviser Flynn, who admitted lying to FBI
"Twenty another setback for the investigation into Russia's influence into our twenty sixteen elections justice department says it's dropping its criminal case against president Donald trump's first national security adviser Michael Flynn case was brought by special counsel Robert Muller who said Flynn had lied to the FBI about his conversations with the Russian ambassador in a January twenty seventeen interview for more key CBS news anchors Jeff bell and Patty rising spoke with John dean former White House of former White House legal counsel for president Richard Nixon Mr dean thanks as always for making some time for us to your initial reaction to hearing the news today pretty surprising actually yeah I'm a little a little confusing and also the motion that was filed to dismiss says that the the line was not material to the investigation is the reason they dismissed it well when you dig a little deeper it seems like a really very material to the investigation so this is kind of a pre tax basis to dismiss the charge this is a very naive question but I don't understand how the church just could be dismissed after general Flynn has already pleaded guilty to the judge the judge Solomon may not understand that either but he he has to find the rule on that whether or not the case can be dismissed the justice department is arguing that he really doesn't have anything to rule on that once they pull the case away that there's no discretion left for the judge to decide I think the judge is going to see it differently and we're going to have more of a hearing on this influx some of this out when asked about William Barr the Attorney General who was signed an outside prosecutor to review the justice department's case that was rather unusual move was it not it's been done before but typically in charges of misconduct by somebody in the department it's not typically done in routine criminal investigations but he's done it a number he has a number of Russia probe investigations under this kind of review we also not only the use of Saint Louis U. S. attorneys got want to Connecticut looking at other aspects of the case and the shopping until they find somebody who will disagree with the way the original prosecution was brought and dismiss it are there ongoing concerns about interference in the twenty twenty election there are as as special counsel Miller testified the guy even a year ago that the heat there were ongoing efforts by the Russians to interfere with our twenty twenty election the government the executive branch is doing nothing the Congress has been leased the house had been wringing his hands about it and expressing

Explaining the Michael Flynn controversy
"City every thing that we have been saying we're now going on three plus years is now true there is a miscarriage of justice they set up general Flynn we now have hand written notes to prove it where do we stand and your thoughts what we have even more evidence now Sean than we had yesterday we did a new filing at about one o'clock this afternoon with a report from the FBI that completely exonerated planets of January fourth of any sort of Russia problem and repeats in multiple ways that they had checked all the government files on him the FBI files the DA files probably ASCII files all those those two were redacted and found no derogatory information on him whatsoever so then we learned a task a confidential informant against them from the other information I have another that staff and helpers and he's a total slimeball but was running an operation against when I'm probably through the office of net assessment James Baker colonel James Baker in the department of defense with his handler and we think banker that they could not be at the operator but the defense department Baker is the one who had the connection that allowed him to get the transcript of the Kinsley act calls that he then probably leaked to his friend David Ignatius there been recent disclosures of how cozy their relationship was which was inappropriate for more reasons than one and we've just got more and more evidence of the strong page text messages hell struck at the instructions of seven four went back in which means the upper echelon of the FBI Comey and McCabe went back in and kept the following general Flynn from being closed he references their own incompetence and realizing that the file has been closed even though it was supposed to be on so they started all over again and start making up the attempt for the Logan act delegations and set up the interview now as I read these hand written notes and and new information that has come out potential questions for DD's call explain what that is this is from struck that son an email from strong before McCabe is going to place the call to swing on the day of the interview that Comey was talking and bragging about his little speech on national January twenty fourth four days into the trump administration and McCabe now general Flynn it's been widely reported ask or do I need a lawyer anything in Andrew McCabe lied to him did he not and deny him his Miranda rights well actually technically Maranda doesn't apply in the non custodial setting but what they always do is at least mention of one thousand one possibility the false statement possibility and what that means that they have plans and schemes by other information we have not even do that with general Flynn there emails yesterday produced that recommended that they do that and note that they always do that at least mention it in an interview and they decided here because it was planned not to mention it at all they schemes and plans and met at length about it to decide to keep him relaxed and unguarded and then I would not have their and what wouldn't a White House council of as well what is the nature of this then again improper process was and protocol what is the nature of the discussion with general Flynn and if they had the Telemus about an investigation into planned and Russia well that point the White House counsel would say will red flags general Flynn they probably would have told you probably need a lawyer that would have happened now in that and then these other you know hand written notes what is our goal now why would any FBI agent ever have to ask the question because the goal should be truth the goal should be justice they say then it goes on truth admission R. or to get him to lie get him we're trying to get him to do something or and then it's so so we can then prosecute him or get him fired well that sounds like a perjury trap but I'm not the smart lawyer that you are Sydney about one that was obviously written obviously their goal and that's even more apparent in the text messages of Strzok and page and others that came out in the production today where they also talk about using a defensive briefing as a pretext to talk to him they're trying to figure out a way to talk to him in such a way that he doesn't know he's being interviewed so they could try to trap him or make something up against him and they wound up having to just make it up and we learn more in today's production also about how Mr Strzok did massive added to the original agents three oh two and was trying very hard to keep that other agents employees in the report despite his significant changes to it and was talking to Lisa page about that she was fussing with him that helps lobbyists work was on it all right I'm I want to get John Solomon here in here in a second but Sydney what we now knows that this was a set up that they knew ahead of time that they had put this case to rest they resurrected it for political purposes we know even earlier and and the attorney general's confirm this that in fact when we've confirmed it that it was premeditated fraud on the FISA court because they will warn John Solomon will address this in a minute and that is they will warn that the dirty dossier that Hillary paid for should not be trusted it was political in nature it's unverified and my and that Christopher Steele has an agenda numerous times but they took the unverified later we find out unverifiable odd dirty Russian dossier that even apparently the Russians knew was going to Hillary Clinton which brings up a whole new story likely Russian disinformation even The New York toilet paper times got that was used as the foundation for all four FISA warrants totally debunked at this point they never even tried to verify it and then they took away Carter page's civil liberties and constitutional rights they spied on a candidate a transition team and deep into the presidency of Donald Trump those last words are Attorney General bars are and then we have other issues involving helper and Joseph miss foot in Brandon and and clapper which I assume at some point will be addressed to hear Sydney but here's what happened they denied that we now know that general Flynn is even a bigger hero don't week that what we have been saying on this program and thank god for you because you've got the crap beat out of you all a lot you work your your you know what off offered no money for the most part pro bono and donations from generous people thank god because this guy went bankrupt and he fell on the sword to save his son is not true Sidney Powell yes yes the generosity of the American people has kept our litigation going in his defense and we've learned that there was a secret side deal of course but generally they have promised not to indict his son but the judge didn't know it and we found documentary evidence only recently that Covington and Burling as per our lawyers and the prosecutor Mr van crack it made this a secret side deal deliberately to avoid that Mr Bannon cracks obligation to produce that exculpatory or impeachment information to any future defendant that they wanted general Flynn to testify against so it was another example of them cracked deliberately trying to hide the ball of exculpatory evidence and believe that the same time we on at the same time the judge did not note that the plea was coerced at and the plea was course because they said well we didn't think ally but you're going to admit to lying rose we're going after your son which that is prosecutorial abuse to I don't want to keep John Solomon out of this discussion John you've brought amazing work here and you have a lot of updates we have to listen today's documents that should be forced into the public I think really bring to light the deliberate nature of what was going on here the normal process for the F. B. I. was taking its course they looked at general plan they decided he wasn't a Russian asset he posed no threat he should be okay to be the national security adviser and then this is a more right from their notes the seventh floor of the FBI got involved the seven floors James Comey and Andrew McCabe and they stop the closure of the files the they were gonna treats when the right way and just give me a defensive briefing I move on and they put a stop to it and then they can talk this interview and you

Islamic Folklore The Ant Prays For Rain
"Once there was a big famine in Palestine it was during the time of the Prophet Prophet. Sulaiman King Solomon. He came out with his people and proceeded to an open place in the desert to pray for the rains to come. Suddenly he saw an and standing on. Its two legs raising. Its hands up towards the sky and saying oh Allah we are but very small among all the creatures we cannot survive without die. Grace please bestow upon US sustenance and do not punish us because of the sins of human beings please send down the reins so that trees can grow farms become green in grains become available and we have our food to eat prophet. Sulaiman knew the language of all animals. He told his people let us go home. The prayer of this end is enough. It then rain too heavily in all the land became green and productive. The end is an intelligent creature. Warm days it collects and stores grain inside the hulls. It knows that during wet and cold months it would not be able to go out to search for food for fear that grain may start growing because of wetness it splits it into two or more pieces at times during Moonlit nights it brings the split grains out of the stores for drying and preservation against decay. The holes under the ground are made very carefully and covered with shelter to prevent the rain water from getting inside the holes the end unlike the other animals can lift a burden twice. Its own weight. It is not a selfish creature. When aunt finds some store of food grains it runs up to its group takes its fellow ants to that place. It shows everyone of them. Its own find of this door. The always behave in this manner. They work in live in cooperation with each other. This shows how the aunt works for the group and how each of them fulfills the needs in livelihood of its fellow beings how shameful it is for a man who has no regard for another man who has no concern for his fellow human beings who could be starving because of want of food. Once while Prophet Sulaiman was traveling together with hosts of men. Gin and birds. They reached valley events. When the chief of these ants witnessed the pomp and the glory with which Prophet Sulaiman and his companions were approaching toward it. He warned all the answers to get into their holes lest they got trampled and crushed unknowingly by the approaching men and Jinn Prophet. Sulaiman smiled at. This warning sounded by the ants chief and ordered his companions to wait till the aunts went inside their holes. None of us should hurt any aunt while passing over their land. He said it said that Prophet Sulaiman addressed the chief of the aunts. And Said How could my people hurt you or your fellow ants when they are floating through air? Don't you know that I am a messenger of God and would never act unfairly? The chief of the ants replied o Messenger of God my cautioning. The ants was not for any hurt that they would suffer but to prevent them getting stray and forgetting the glory of God after seeing year pomp. And show there is a deep meaning. In this event it shows that even the most humble and smallest of creatures has been endowed with the necessary wisdom to live safely and avoid being hurt as far as possible. It also shows how even a small end does have the natural understanding of the true position of Allah. It imparts a lesson. That one should not forget the true might and glory of Allah when one experiences a great power and dignity of any creature in this world thus an aunt is one of the most wonderful small creatures in this World Surinam L. The end in the holy current is a chapter named after this creature over one thousand three hundred years ago. Imam Ali was giving a sermon in Kufa. In which he was describing the beauties of creation in various forms of life he was referring to small creatures in asking men to study. How God made them so small yet so sturdy strong he described the end in these words. Look at an end. How tiny is its body? And how delicate features it is such a small creature that it often escapes the eye and few people care to attach any importance to it. Among the living beings found on this earth. Look at it and study its ways of life how it crawls how it attacks its food how it lifts a grain so many times heavier than its body carries it to its whole how it stores grains and how in summer it gathers in stocks food for

Making sure that the equipment that's necessary for health workers are in place you know these are of course the challenges around the world with you're talking about New York City of Fiji but I think particularly challenging here in the Pacific as the remoteness of the locations it is also an sending that the number of people in the Pacific have different types of underlying health conditions. So if you actually have a massive outbreak with very concerned that this could have serious consequences for a significant segment of the population. I think the fact that the borders have been closed in many places and flights have stopped. Mix The issue of remoteness even more challenging so we are finding it difficult to move whether we're talking about personal protection equipment or other types of medical equipment and supplies are specialists and experts that we need in order to respond to this the movement of people in Congress very difficult at the moment. And what else is the UN doing to support the communities and governments of the UN has really come together this time and we have a range of things that we have responded. We've set up something old joint incident Management Team to look at the immediate health sector preparedness and Response Plans of countries. We received requests from the country's is you are aware. I covered ten countries in the Pacific. These requests come not only from those ten countries but from around the Pacific all of the country in the Pacific. And then we've prioritized. We look at the logistics capabilities in terms of the procuring and delivering what is being requested from us. And the the requests you know range of things from testing laboratories setting up testing laboratories to Mosques for health workers too Water and sanitation supplies etcetera at the same time we are acutely rather than multiple needs in multiple sectors whether we are talking about protecting women and children when we talk about places where cities have been locked down for weeks at a time. Or we're talking about food security right now because people are unable to work and don't have an income or you're talking about multiple disasters had a cycle of the number of countries and that compounds the crisis that Corbett nineteen is brought all the Pacific Tropical Cyclone Herald. I think is better. Four countries in as many days. Can you expand on what happens in a situation where you've got a health issue plus a natural disaster happening at the same time so on the one hand you could argue that up to a little bit better prepared here in the Pacific because we have to deal with a measles outbreak several months ago and some of these structures and mechanisms already in place to ensure that we fight the measles outbreak in fact the joint Incident Management Team? That I mentioned to you before was something that existed from that outbreak and was re purposed into dealing the covert nineteen similarly We have something in the Pacific humanitarian team functions. Here brings together all of the U. N. and other partners like the Red Cross and the NGOs are now we have government representatives and the regional organisations bilateral Austrailia New Zealand so those structures are in place and it really helped in some ways arguably to respond as will two TC herald which had an impact on four of the countries. All of them are in the Pacific quality which I support the Solomon Islands Tonga Fiji and Vanuatu by far based on preliminary analysis. Certain parts of Vanuatu are the worst hit followed by a couple of areas in Fiji Solomon Islands Tonga thankfully a not impacted significantly as went to sadly though twenty seven. People lost their lives in Solomon Islands. As a result of this cyclone-hit abort that Kept signs people washed off the boat and have one confirmed death in Fiji a six year old child. That was confirmed with just this morning. We're still waiting for the data from Anwar two areas of Vanuatu that We don't have any communication with in Pentecost Island. For instance the first teams have been going there yesterday and this morning to make detailed assessments but clearly we can see based on the aerial photography and other reports that some one hundred sixty thousand people in. Monroe ought to have been affected by this especially badly affected Guyland of Santo and And penticost lagoon. Bill is a second largest city in Vanuatu. In that's on the island of Center. We know that the infrastructure people's homes roofs blown off. We know that there has been some shortage of water. There's no electricity many pants. Also the that's the case in Fiji in terms of the deputy and we are very concerned about food security We think that if we don't get things sorted we will have people going hungry in a metro. Weeks the secretary-general Monster Reform Agenda in two thousand. Nineteen with this double crosses happening in areas of the Pacific Reform Agenda Aid situation. I can already see that happening in the past few weeks as we've been working together as one. Un system. I think it's an important change to how the UN has maybe functioned in some other places during times of disaster even in between disasters. So for instance if you you have all of the sectors coming together we know that this for instance Kobe. Nine hundred ninety s right now is something that is a health sector response or largely so. But it's not only you cannot possibly move your medical equipment and personnel from one place to another. If you don't have your logistics people work so whilst you have W at show and unit steph looking at the medical supplies you'll have. Wfp leading logistics identifying aircraft. And actually getting things for months the other you have other parts of the UN like U. N. O. P. S. O. U. N. D. P. who have existing long-term agreements with suppliers in China or North America or elsewhere who's agreements can be used to procure things that we need. You have like. Un Women the officer High Commissioner for Human Rights and others NGOs as well the very important issue of protection for children for women for people with disabilities when they're curfews when they're lockdowns as I mentioned before you have very important role being played by UNHCR IOM. We know that refugees and migrants are especially vulnerable at this time when borders of closed. And they don't have the coping mechanisms that perhaps People who are living in their homes half so these dishonor accept food security as I mentioned before is a big problem. It's not just a problem in the context of the cyclone because several countries that depend on tourism in the Pacific as you know some of those countries Fiji for instance Vanuatu more than forty percents of the GDP is based on tourists industry and people have no income. Now they have no income and as a result that have very little access to food. So there are agencies like F your and uplift be Undp looking at Making sure that cash transfers cash grants can take place now while of course trying to support the government's in dealing with economic impacts the medium-term and long-term economic impacts of this crisis Hannah seeing the reform saving lives. Yes indeed in fact I was not so long ago in Liberia and I was Impressed by how the UN First of all came together but importantly all of the other partners came together as well. There was something called the incident management team and we used to meet three times a week. You had countries like China and the US are the CDC sitting there with. The government was led by the government. So first of all you know these things work well when governments are able to coordinate all of the actors and would we've tried to do here is wherever governments have needed. A wanted our support in terms of accord initiative. We've done that. We support the government. The governments are still in the league but we support them. I think what I am seeing now in terms of covert nineteen in the Pacific as a repeat of what I saw in Liberia and sadly that was not always the case was also in some other countries during this Nami and other cyclones. But I do see that here. There is a commitment on the part of all of the agencies to actually come together in some sense you know having a different role for a resident coordinator has also made a difference speakers agencies. Feel that the President. Coordinator is a neutral entity at the same time is a person that the government knows Vagan Goto to without having to go to seventeen different agencies during crisis like this but it's also important to know that this collaboration between W A chore and the Resident Coordinator Is something quite unique. It's happening really for the first time and I. It seems to be working not only in the Pacific but everywhere around the world. And what is your call to actions? Nice listening but in the Pacific and globally. I believe that this crisis can only be dealt with if we work together. It is of course human nature when something like this happening on. One tends to think of how one CAN PROTECT. Oneself one's family perhaps wants community and by extension When country but at the end of the day we can't respond to crisis legs alone Whether we are an individual or family or community or country we need to help each other so as much as we need to ensure that the right protocols are in place that we do our best to keep ourselves and our loved one safe we must understand that the only way we can actually beat this is my reaching out and helping each as well and we cannot just circle the wagons and hope that this will pasta and we will be protected. We have to find ways. Safeway's creative ways using technology but if technology is not available sometime through physical movement but safely to get the expertise to get the and this applies to places where it's needed especially so that the most vulnerable populations are supported and helped during this terrible crisis.
How to Begin to Restart, with Mark Ein
"Welcome to no challenges remaining. I am Ben Rothenberg on this week's show. I am joined by Mark On. Who was the owner of the city open tennis tournament on the ATP and W T tour which is held annually in Rookery Park in Washington DC is a terminus Ben at the same venue for fifty years as a big standing tradition in the summer tennis calendar in the United States and it's also potentially the next tennis term on the calendar with a bunch of determines before it having been canceled is only April but already we know that there will be no European clay court season at least pre Wimbledon and all the grass season has gone so Washington suddenly stands in April as the next big landmark on the tennis horizon with being the first big combined? Atp WTI tournament still on the schedule currently so with that in mind? We talk mark about what it's been like this while is uncertainty different contingencies. That are being talked about in the tenth world and hopefully you'll find this conversation illuminating in these strange murky times. Here's mark very happy to be joined on the show today by mark on who is. The owner of the city opened the Washington tennis tournament Washington. Summer tennis tradition I believe is your slogan eighteen. Wto tours the annual stuff every late July early August although this year obviously there's a lot of uncertainty in the air so mark. Thank you very much for being on here and chatting in this in this weird moment. We're having appreciate it. Always always great to chat. And and Ben. That's more than a slogan it is. It's true no it's true. It is washing summer tennis tradition. I one of the first times I went to the city opened which was send the League Mason Tennis Classic Back in the Ninety S. I want actually WANNA radio contests for tickets for some. I forget what the Trivia question was by some trivia question and they asked me which days I wanted tickets forge session for. They gave me like all possible sessions and I picked the final Michael. Chang wanted that year and remember that so I remember that one and I might started mine. Vomit tournament is a ball kid when I was twelve years old. So for Eddie dibbs and Harold Solomon engage. All short guys like myself a shot. I thought that they might actually be on the court someday. But that didn't happen to turn this into Eddie. Dibbs podcast briefly. I believe I believe he was the one that came up with the term Bagel that sort of his lasting like they were they were the Bagel brothers. Eddie dibbs Herald Sun Herald was from Silver Spring Maryland. Down the street so there's Great Danes as Gray Days. So you own the tournaments. Since last year the term it was in danger of moving out of DC and it was for sale in you bought it and kept it in DC. Which I many others are grateful for. I'm just curious how. How is your first year owning attorney? What was that first experience? Like as you've been in tennis for a long time and other other serves two roles but was that experience like and I guess looking forward a little bit. What kind of stuff we are looking forward to for for twenty twenty. I'm it was. It was fantastic and we really had is a great fifty year old man. It's the fifth biggest tournament the United States one of only the only ATP five hundred in the United States and one of only five combined events and You know it was a really terrific event but we had this vision for how we can take to to totally new level and so even though we got it we literally only got control of it. In March I thank so it was a real sprint to get it ready. You know I think we did we really. I think revolutionized the event can complete change in the site. The Food and beverage the player experience. Everything we really wanted to touch. Every single component of the event our motto was that we would never say. We're doing something because that's the way it was done in the past where we're going to try to thank. Outta do things differently and you know. The results were incredible. We broke every record. The tournaments ever had everything shattered them on and what was really great. Was that when we started the week? It look good but it didn't look like it was going to break records that people came to the site and went to the new food area and tried the food people like Jose. Andres and people locally. We had the best ice cream plays July. The best coffee plays the best burger plays. Moei came and did stuff of through word of mouth it. Just people started coming incoming. We ended up selling out seven of the eleven sessions. And I think what it just showed to me. Was that tennis as we know from events like Indian Wells and the US Open and a whole lot of events when it's done well a high level people respond tenants fans common. They love it but then other people come. I think that was really rewarding to just see this great reaction and our team work really hard and so it's really gratifying. And then yeah we didn't I mean we we were. We are planning on building on last year. We have a whole set of new food and beverage partners new seating areas a whole bunch of stuff that we were about to launch the campaign to talk to people about in Indian Wells and obviously that was the first event to be cancelled and we also put a pause on our marketing efforts. It seems like in the current state of the world. That's not the most important thing but whenever we pick it up hopefully this year or whenever it is we're going to build on last year and just keep building and growing and We have really high really high goals for that sort of the moment. I think that everybody in tennis will point to is sort of when things got real and the corona virus situation for tennis getting cancelled which has happened very shortly before that terminus supposed to start the day before quality started. What was your reaction to that news and I guess had you had already been on your radar from from the city open perspective before then or was that really the wake up call moment. I think that was kind of I mean. There is a series of you. Know a series of things happen that heightened your sensitivity to it But that was maybe the tablets to saying. Oh Wow this is different back as soon as it happened. I texted one of my best friend who happens to own an NBA team. And I sent him a note and I said this isn't just for. Tennessee is big for all of sports. Because you know at that point no one had cancelled any. It wasn't just the percentage of that. It was the first major sporting event to be full. And Yeah and here. We are today. So yeah that whole time and and you know Indian Wells really is a mecca for everyone in the tennis world the whole global tennis community flocks there every year. And it's almost five hundred thousand kids almost big as the French Open or close to beg so some of that size and scale gets cancelled. It's opened a lot of people's lives up to the issue. We're dealing with what once you're once. You're that sort of alert happens. Then I guess. Obviously all the children's center immediately after that our media on standby like Miami Charleston. Houston but for you what. What was your thought process on how I'm watching? The ripples of this work their way through the calendar. You know it's so interesting ban. I mean that was not even I guess it was just about a month ago and you just today. We know so much more 'cause we're all quasi obsessed with every little detail of this if you can put yourself back to where we were a month ago. We had no idea about tests vaccines and treatments and social distancing. I don't think that at the time we necessarily at all thought. Oh this is gonNA endanger the prospects of hosting. The city opened obviously enters. Your mind was totally unknown. What we were dealing with a month ago and obviously all know so much more today but back then we thought. Maybe it's a possibility but we definitely didn't think that it was a foregone conclusion. What does this last month? Ben Like for you. What is it like sort of from this event? Obviously everyone's lives period. You're staying indoors like everybody else. I'm sure but what is your just from the from the Tennis City Open Van Vantage Point? What is it been like for this month or so? Yeah I mean look. The first thing that I focused on was just make sure my family is safe and healthy and that we were set up in a way so that everyone in the family would be okay. That was the first thing and then frankly bend the the next thing I had to focus on. Is that we have you know we own our own a lot of a bunch of companies and I really wanted to make sure that and it was clear this was going to be a rough economic time and so I wanted to make sure the people who work in those companies were in good shape as possible and I'm really proud that as of today we haven't had zero layoffs furloughs salary reduction just because we've been laser focused on figuring out how to. Mirol in pretty good shape and had resources but also just really protecting the people who work in those companies was my next priority so even I'm not going to the office. I'm working. I think I work pretty hard and I'm working harder now than ever just trying to do that. And then you know and then there is a lot of work around planning for the city open and it's different because it's not in front of us. Obviously I wanted to make sure the team that works on. It is safe so we were very early and having people work from home. And now we're just scenario planning bandit some you know. There's really four scenarios one is the event goes off as usual To is is that it goes off without fans which is the topic of a Lotta conversation in a lot of sports. Three is a hybrid where it goes off but there are some fans an enforce. Obviously it's cancelled and You know we're doing everything we can to problem solve and be creative to find a way that we can do it somehow but it only is going to happen if we can assure that it's safe for people And so just a huge amount of work going into China. Figure that out.

The Queen ruled over a prosperous country somewhere near the Red Sea and her intelligence and beauty were for unmatched.

When here and Samson arrived their spirits dropped instead of a hidden mineshaft leading to a subterranean den full of gold? They found shallow grotto in the cliff. Face some locals had taken to using the front part of it as a public toilet and so the floor was covered in inches of human waste. Undeterred Tahir plowed forward figuring that since they came all this way they might as well be thorough Samson followed would reluctantly behind wading through raw sewage.

During his forty year reign from nine seventy two nine thirty one B C e King Solomon ushered in a new age of prosperity in Israel. He built a compound of Whitestone gold atop the hills of the city. This complex was comprised of the Royal Palace on off L.. The city of David which was the main settlement in Jerusalem and the fabulous temple. Galway on the temple. Mount Solomon was known across the ancient world for his wealth and wisdom. His reputation helped him so alliances alliances like his partnership with the Phoenician King Hiram of Tyre it also led others to seek him out and establish trade like like the beautiful brilliant Queen of the Land of Sheba under Solomon's rule. Israel's twelve tribes turned their focus from warfare to prosperity disparity and business and the life. Blood of this new Israel was pure precious. Gold the source of Solomon's gold was the source of his power but today the location of his precious mines has been lost to the figurative and possibly literal sands of time time one legend ties Solomon's wealth to his relationship with the Queen of Sheba while they're meeting is only given a few brief lines. In the Hebrew other religious interpretations give more weight to the rendezvous. As we mentioned present day Ethiopia was likely included in Ancient Sheba. According to the Ethiopian Orthodox Church Salomon's introduction to the Queen is one of the most important important events in Ethiopia's history. The CABRA Nagase translated as the glory of the Kings is an essential text to Ethiopian Christians. The existing manuscript was published sometime in the thirteen hundreds and was written in gettys the ancient language of the region. According to the text the Queen of Sheba and King Solomon had a much more involved relationship than the Bible suggests when the Hebrew Bible mentions their meeting. It says that Solomon gave the queen all her desire whatsoever she asked. According to the Ethiopian. Be An Orthodox Church. Whatever she asked included a sexual relationship according to this take on the legend the Queen in had a child by King? Solomon a son named MENA leak. The first he took on the religion of his father and ruled Sheba from the ancient city Of Axum his line governed modern day Ethiopia for generations when Menelik was young man he traveled with his mother from Sheba to Israel to meet his father during his visit. Solomon presented mental leak with a replica of the Israelites. Greatest treasure the Ark of the Covenant Covenant One night before he left mentally managed to switch the imitation arc with the one that resided in. Solomon's Temple all he then brought the real are back with him to Sheba. According to popular Jewish historical tradition the arc went missing from Jerusalem. uh-huh sometime in the five hundred's BC. According to the Ethiopian Orthodox Christians. This lost treasure lies inside Our Lady of Zion Diane Church for Millennia. Monks hit the arc behind a simple curtain in guarded against prying eyes. No one besides the chosen. In few at the head of the church have ever been permitted to see the Ark for themselves the stolen Ark of the Covenant isn't the only thing that ties Ethiopia via to King Solomon according to the Cabra Nagase the dynasty started by mental leak. The first son of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba stretched onwards words for almost three thousand years. In fact highly selassie the last emperor of Ethiopia claim to be mentally leaks exc descendant if this was true than the Solomonic Dynasty Wu. Seo Pia from the nine hundreds B. C. E. Until nineteen seventy eighty four when highly selassie was overthrown. Perhaps the source of King Solomon's Gold could be Ethiopia via Sheba or it could be another another place mentioned in the Hebrew Bible throughout the Old Testament. One name in particular continually appears next to descriptions of King Solomon's gold this is over an unspecified. Port trading center that sent Israel shipments of Silver Sandalwood Pearls Ivory eighths peacocks and most importantly gold. The book of Kings describes a journey that Solomon and Hiram King Tire took to offer in search of gold tributes over could very well be the side of King. Solomon's Goldmines the issue issue then is to figure out where exactly over is in the modern world. Unfortunately there is very little context in the parts of the Old Testament estimate that mentioned over the port city was obviously famous for its gold and the Hebrew Bible repeatedly references. Its wealth these passages. She's however assume that the reader knows exactly where they're talking about over was apparently well known enough when the Old Testament was written that no other geographical markers mentioned we can't even be entirely sure what continent it's on. We know that the expedition to offer a set set sail from the port of Etzion Gabar on the Red Sea. Therefore it makes sense. That offer could be nearby and reachable by ship popular. Theories say that offer was on the eastern coast of Africa somewhere on the Arabian peninsula or even in India but no one can say for certain perhaps over still out there somewhere waiting to be found beneath the dunes. There's just not enough left in the written record. This blind spot is partially the result of the way Solomon's reign concluded even with all his gold by the end of his term. King Solomon faced the destruction of everything he had built while the king had a reputation for wisdom. According to the Bible it was his sins. Against Y'all way that ultimately led to the dissolution of the kingdom he'd fought so hard to establish as the king grew older. His heart turned turned away from the Jewish God. He built temples to the gods of his wives. Homelands and allowed his people to worship their Solomon himself began to worship a star TV a Phoenician fertility goddess and Mohawk a bloodthirsty Canaanite. God who could only be sated by Human Sacrifice God appeared to Solomon in vision the Deity said he would break Israel apart for its people had turned to idolatry and the worship ship of other Gods when King Solomon died in nine thirty one BC e he left behind a desk dealing city beyond his palace and Temple. He built a magnificent courthouse a house for his main wife and multiple pagan altars and temples for his other wives. All of these were made of the finest Cedar and stone topped with Gold. Before the king's body was cold y'all ways threat that was swiftly carried out when Solomon's son Rea- Bowen took the Throne Ten of the twelve tribes of Israel refused to recognize him as their ruler during his reign Solomon had implemented hefty taxes on the surrounding tribes now that he was dead the ten ten tribes demanded that Rio bom cut the taxes his father had implemented but he refused so these tribes split off dividing writing Solomon's prosperous kingdom into the two warring states of Israel and Judah Judah would never again rejoin Israel under Jewish king. Solomon's work was undone. The story of King Solomon is a fantastic and dramatic one with captivating characters like the Queen of Sheba and powerful allegory of sin and destruction according to the Hebrew Bible Jerusalem. I'm under Sullivan. became the glittering golden capital of a mighty kingdom. But did any of. It actually happened that way. The Archaeological Gilan record is somewhat sparse. When it comes to King Solomon? This isn't surprising when the Babylonians under Nebuchadnezzar the second and invaded Jerusalem in five eighty seven B. c. e.. They raised it to the ground.

"Live your family when you moved here in Saint Louis. Did you live. What kind of neighborhood did you into We'll the neighbor that I moved into was not the best neighborhood it is now. The neighborhood there really was. I was very surprised by when I when I went back there and what is called the Grove and I like. It's my old house I lived in. I went went there. recently when I was in college and I went to the old house and I was like oh well this is much nicer than I recollect and lived there when you lived there what kind of people he was I think I was it was mostly an immigrant community Tino Keno was our neighbor. I recall that and I think she was the only white person in the neighborhood so it was definitely a mix of Africans and and African Americans I was going to ask because or the reason for that question is like I don't I mean I certainly don't know what it's like to be black and I also don't know what it's like to be black back and then black Americans have it experience than you do and I don't. I don't even know if that's true for you. Because you came over here when you were so young. They're going into a community. there is a variance because my family and the way that I grew up I- outside of my home I was black for the most part but there there is a mentality you have having an African family which is you don't think of You're not taught that black is other. like that was doesn't like a comprehension that my like my parents never convey that to me. My parents never like the police here are dangerous like you should be aware that being black and certain spaces in okay and that was not like like we all learn things together and one thing that we learn as a family was what is racism wow and and how it applies to us because we there's by parents are not. F- of mentality they're both might specially dad has a privileged background even though there was a civil war he still his family wasn't poor. He wasn't in the situation where he thought less of himself. and that was instilled into us is that we're not less less because we're black. and that was like it was like society definitely handed over to us like you're less because you're black sure but it. M- it made it less I was less digestible for me. so I wasn't it wasn't a thing that hindered me self-esteem. Weiss it like there was brief moments where it became an issue but it was very easily overcome because my main identity Ethiopian which is an account of course I yeah and do you have any of your other siblings choir a minute. My sister is also a choir. She's a lesbian but she that was the we we sort of drifted. I mean her in two different fast because that's our background ground. Our parents are abuse of so in she there the issue between my parents before homosexuality was just the cultural differences and how we behaved in how we didn't behave due due to what Ethiopian families expected and so so there's a lot of traditional stuff that my parents watch stillness and what would be the expectation that they would be getting to you. We'll for like behavior wise. That's like my my parents. Were very strict they they didn't really trust anything in the American system. like hanging out with people doing after school activities were questioned all the time participating in American holidays were which were very confusing for them. They're like we don't want you to go out. There like Halloween was the the hardest thing to explain to them. Oh wow so was the expectation that like the core family unit was everything would be everything like you wouldn't have to have other friends. You don't go anywhere anywhere else. You don't need to be anywhere else. You should not have to so it was definitely maintaining. just a very like my parents had a lot out of expectations for each of us. especially since America has like hat like there's the American dream is here so you work hard and you do all these things things and he follow these rules and that sort of my parents did they just became extreme and you have to be good all the time you have to be your best and you can't stray from these things things and my sister she she definitely she's a rule breaker but I have one of those hours. I got a couple the system but I think in all fairness I think my parents were uptight and she deserves to bring those rolls deserve to be broken. however that just led to her definitely being running being run away and being awarded the state for a little bit and not in itself is actually the worst. I think possible because the state is not that Nice and she ended up in foster situations and so she got into drugs and gangs and she she's definitely open about her greenwich now but unfortunately she's like twenty years into a heroin addiction action. So how are you so close with her. is with one of those things where like with with her. It's she shows up every once in a while she muscles on the street and if not she's in jail so why do see her. It's on occasion and it isn't Seattle and it's museum in downtown. Seattle and she just POPs up and it's usually when I'm a friend. That's never met her before. They're like who is this person. Just talking is an older sibling. She's only two years older than me. and did you have any sort of the do you think there's a relationship between that sort of acting being out and an expectation about or like lack of acceptance of Aquarius. Is there a relationship air or do you think just overall Ethiopian Culture American Erkin Culture will there is the culture difference doesn't include Homophobia 'cause I would imagine that I mean. I don't actually have any siblings. I could imagine that if I was a queer person and that was trying to figure out my identity and I mean. Did you have an inkling that she might that might be what I would. Imagine that that we really scary to watch somebody Um Struggle that much I it's it's more along the lines of her queasiness definitely didn't help but it wasn't the initiator for how she ended up being runaway because like she was definitely more of more more butch an then definitely more of a more of a tomboy but that really didn't hold up my parents at anyway because my mother is also very strong sort of woman so it's it's kind of like. She didn't really see any any issue with that. Might there is definitely issue with my me being more feminine as a Kid but so it was more it it was like the generals were definitely more strictly applied to the boys and it most mice. My sister's issues definitely squareness was an issue but it wasn't like the predominant issue is also just an issue with her not wanting to be following the set of rigid guidelines that my parents put forth on their kids and and then it became more parent through through time when we were. I like the queer definitely became more of an issue in our upper teens than it was in our younger and the younger days and and like it's I guess it's tough to call to recall exactly what she was going through because she became addicted to heroin around age of sixteen so her like you would have been so little I was I was fourteen. I mean that's little that's little like as a person person you know it's definitely it's one of those things where I I was aware of my sexual preference and it definitely wasn't issue of hindering it and holding it back and trying to behave a certain way especially in regards to what the just masculinity and feeling that I have to behave Dave in order to maintain this illusion. I guess so we're the same age you're aware of fourteen. Were you were prior ooh. I think I've I feel like I was definitely like nine. when I was it that was my masturbating age and Yeah I put I put two and two together and I was like all right. We know orange. I mean I think across the board in our in American culture. There's the same thing that you're talking about where I think. Men tend to be patrolled more. It's a it's a narrower needle that you're trying to thread in terms of behavior Xavier Women. Can I mean then. There's another side to that which is like wants your woman who's rejecting men then. It's like you're disgusting and useless to the university because men are important. So why would you do that but I think that when your child I thank you know my experience has been in a lot of the women that I know didn't feel as told by other people what was going on for them and so like like it becomes then hard to find yourself where you're just like. I Love Sports and Fried Green Tomatoes. People like sounds normal. Put on these overall but I think if you're a young man. I think that's really different. I think are really because the constantly telling you what they what they think. You are men like. It's like you have to to. The definition of a real man is so like it's so like narrow and like it's like you have to follow these set of guidelines which is like and it also just means behaving. Even slightly effeminate is just too much and that's the thing I think my sister didn't really we have an issue because she was dating boys up into certain point and then when it became apparent that she was dating women that was when that's when my the homophobia appeared like it was one of those things where they had to be presented to my parents like Oh. You can be now for you for me. The it was it was definitely there wasn't awareness earnest and a lot of like stopping and curbing my behavior in regards to to how I tire act and how he spoke who defeated the forever like do you think if you look back at your childhood that it would have been that kind of like patrolling in navigating yeah it was done with a movie that I watched. It was done with the toys I played. It was like everything was sort of steered to be like this is what you're into now. This is what you're going to be watching. This is what you should be doing this. This is not what you're GonNa do it was did you WANNA play with. What did you want to watch. I like it was it was really weird because I had a stuffed animal that I love dearly and my appearance didn't care for that and that being kept being thrown away that's heartbreaking and it's yeah it was like a it was a definitely whenever I did something feminine. It was mostly just something mask who had to be presented to me immediately in order for me to learn like you did which is why here. I'm definitely into all the masculine stuff but also actually I would say How do you identify now. What do you think do you. Do you notice yourself being feminine. Is it something like that like that. Voices now in your head and you notice yourself it's definitely a lot of growing up has been giving myself permission to behave certain ways and I cross my legs now every once in a while and it's one of those things where I do notice it and I do think about it like allow to be to cross my legs in the situation like why does that matter anymore. Just fucking crush give yourself permission. I always do but there's always a part of me that has asked us. This is the appropriate thing to do in this situation. I mean I do relate to that though I will say do relate to that because you know something that I notice about about myself. is that certain types of men like men that I would have dated men that were somehow like. I don't know what so it. Wasn't you know we're all on a spectrum and so if it wasn't like men that I was drawn to that I would have dated for no reasons because they do want to do anything but he didn't mind having them around. I still find myself like wanting to please men because that's the thing that is taught to go on a date meant like if you want to date man you have to please this guy to care but that's not true for all men. I just find that like it's interesting to to find that little moment. Where like I there's certain types of dues. I cannot talk to like in a normal way like I can talk to them like a Weirdo. That's my personality and a hyper feminine like I noticed my posture changes in the motions that I use with my hands and I get very we like wristy and I do patrol that about my not patrol. I'm so aware of that now because a coat switching which is searching exactly you're putting yourself in the right social situation to appease the other person and since men are kind of it's well because I don't want to appease that I wild about it is that I'm fighting my own. My Body is doing something that my conscious mind is so mad about like fucking stuff. Yes you you no question what are you doing. I I get that completely. There's it is one of the things were when I'm coaching for survival when like okay there's nothing restrict. They're very aggressive. I'm going to do whatever I can to present myself in a way that does I man up straighten up. Don't cross relax. Don't do anything gay what what's.

"It's a verbal noun from the verb Kahal which means to assemble or to convene a group of people interestingly Solomon in the prominent moment his story was someone who called people he was a co helmet it convenient a gatherer yeah and it's win. He dedicated raided the temple. I kings eight one kept Solomon called all the elders of Israel all the heads of the tribes and brought up the Ark of the Covenant from the City of David. All the men of Israel assembled themselves so Solomon was convenor <hes> but he wasn't the only convener this fascinating the people who convene all of Israel. It's a pretty short list. I put it right there in front of you. So people who do this verb to the to the Israelites Moses the first one David Fuss US roster yet Solomon ray-ban who is Solomon Son and then three other kings from the Line of David Sons of David and Solomon Acer Yoshafat and has Kaya so convening all Israel is is a royal task so Israel kings yet so here is the million dollar question. Why does the book of ECCLESIASTES DIS <hes> open up saying the words of the convener the words of one who convenes and why doesn't say Solomon Fight Song says to Solomon causing songs in relation to Solomon the proverbs book of Proverbs Opens The proverbs of Solomon yes? Why doesn't this open the words of Solomon Yeah if he's the only one that we're supposed was to connect this book too because why is he called the convener so evidently were supposed to connect this book in a more General Sense to to just kings of in the Line of David correct? I think so yeah in other words what we're hearing is the the voice of the Line of David <hes> primarily through the Solomon Persona Yeah but as we're GONNA see we're going to hear echoes of multiple kings from the Line of David in the words of the teacher Cap. Solomon isn't the only king being from the Line of David Who's being hyperlinked to here but he is the first son of David and he was the first to build the greatest Eden Israel ever saw in Jerusalem in the most famous so I'm GONNA call it. A solomon-like persona got it <hes> but think of a desk think of it like you know those <hes> photo mosaics. It'll be like a famous person yeah but then it's made up of hundreds of pictures of maybe other famous people. I don't know something great so this would be picture Solomon a bunch of it's all the kings all the kings from the Line of David that you read about first and second kings so <hes> a very helpful book again a <hes> scholar Jenni Barber she wrote a book called the story story of Israel in the book of copilot. That is all about this the book of Go Hell Is. She's calling book. That's right <hes> in scholarship is often just called coachella not ecclesiastes dis because the referred to it by the Hebrew name got Ecclesiastes is is. I'm pretty sure it's the title lives given the book in later Christian tradition okay based on the two agents translation of the word Capella O as ecclesiastes days namely the the Church Gatherer Church <hes> the one guy that all together out okay so just on this point. She says Jenny Barbara she says the name Co Hell It. It means the one who convenes the assembly. This is a label with Royal Associations or after Moses only kings summoned all Israelite assemblies in Moses was even called the King and Moses is called King Ones and those associations take in more kings and just Solomon so I like this Kojo it's name cast him as a royal archetype not an every man wrote so much as in King King. He's all the dividend kings in one persona which everyone is called to be totally yeah. The role of kings over creation is given to male and female on paid one. Try All right <hes> the other thing. Just an interesting note is any of the Kings from the Line of David could be called a son of David in other words the phrase son of David the doesn't mean you're you're only your biological..

"There's a whole poem book Joe about how humans don't have access to God's wisdom. They need to live by the fear of the Lord and trust. So Joe becomes like a, a Solomon-like character who can't ends up, only at the end of the book all I can do trust. He won't be able to play the role of God. God's wisdom advantage all for the books tied in to the Solomon story in different ways. All of this woman imagery, mix a lot of senses of man. Correct. But if I'm a woman, many all, yeah, yeah, it feels almost start to feel like this was really written for me. Yeah. Like the metaphor becomes really, really beautiful, but it's rooted in man and man's relationship with his other. And I'm almost kind of curious like what a woman had designed. This. Yes. Yes. Whole narrative. Yeah. I hear that. In other words, what you're saying. It's important observation to make that this governing narrative with these male representatives and icon, IQ women is framed on one level. From the male perspective, Ryan is the woman that represents choice. There are some times where it gets reversed or you have, however, there are multiple books in the Hebrew bible that reverse it and tell the story using the same archetypal patterns, but from the woman's from the woman's perspective, and this is the important role of the book of Ruth of the book of Esther, and of the book of the song of songs. The song of songs is mostly the voice of the of the woman about her experience in pursuing the man. So it becomes an Adam and eve, Solomon and Sheba story. But now. So it's a from from even she has perspective about their pursuit of the lover. So it seems to me the authors. He revival understand this. They're aware of it. So they have also created complementary contributions in the Hebrew bible that let you know, this isn't just for men, even though that governing narrative, the narrative has like to Eve's or Solomon, the two women, these men, these archetypal men like the atom, or the Solomon are there an icon for the reader, who could be male or female, based on their own choices and situations in life. However, I should say that I say all that I'm a man that's how I experienced the Hebrew bible. So it's been import really important development in, in modern biblical scholarship of it goes by different names. Some people call it feminist readings or woman. Est but there are important scholars and it's not some of its. It's driven by different interests. But I think there's a really important contribution here in that. It's important that men who have given themselves to study, the scriptures have their own assumptions and biases pointed out to them and to hear how women experienced this narrative is Emma. Speaking to what your denting at all. Yeah. No. That's helpful. I want to dig in more. And I'm sure we'll have up to do this about the significance of this metaphor. Yeah, we've been talking about the metaphor. But why choose this metaphor? Yes of the pursuing the other the human other who was essential for us to rule together together. That's right. Yeah. Why is that become the metaphor for pursuing God's wisdom, correct? Yep. Yep. And in the song of songs, it's recapturing the Eden ideal is depicted in the erotic pursuit of two levers. Yeah. Yeah. Who come together under the tree. Yeah. So, yeah, man..

"So you just watched him violate every single rule. The kings of Israel were not supposed to do then you get the story of the Queen of Sheba.

Do you remember how the story opened with the dream, you Solomon, loved Yaohua now whole Salman story is the kind of symmetry and it begins and ends loves our women.

It leads you to hope and think like, yes, it's like a narrative device that it's not like tricks, you less year one you could from one perspective usage tricking you. Well, I don't mean trick. I mean like, but brings you through that emotional. That's right. Of like, oh, this is what possible his was possible. Look what happens when or like it's happening. I felt like this is possible. It's like yeah. It's happening here we go. Yeah. And it's like that never mind. Yeah. Just it's not actually happening. Yeah. Did this. It's worse than you thought. Yeah. This is so par for course he bible, such a common strategy where character will be introduced great potential, and they are a mix of success, and then terrible failure. But then the story of the wise Solomon, sits here, now on the Hebrew, bible, and becomes a resource of imagery. When the seed of the woman finally does come be will be a greater than Solomon. Jesus uses that very phrase to describe himself, he calls himself a greater than Solomon in Matthew chapter twelve what that shows is he read the story Solomon as a pointer beyond Solomon, you, but one who would be like Solomon, at least the good part of the portrait, right? So what is the porch of Solomon turns up the volume on wisdom, he he wants to learn wisdom? Yeah, but not by taking but by receiving as a gift, yet, the thing that got us so close to the that great ruling Verson seed was that he asked for wisdom. Yes. For God's wisdom. Yeah. Decided not to take it on his own. But God said, hey, this is gonna be a lifelong practice. And what Solomon does is these all these little things that can add up. Yeah. Which is taking him away from that decision. Yeah. Correct. And yell. Allston. You realize like no. He's just gorging on the tree. Yeah, that's right. Would it bad? Yeah. He said he wasn't gonna take it then you realize that he is. And noticed his story comes to a culmination in two stories about two kinds of women. One is a very loaded Eden clean who once they join forces, they're like the power wisdom couple. The brings praise Allah, the next narrative is thousand women. Riot, the foreign woman strange woman who leads his heart astray to other gods. He joins himself to them and leads leads path towards death. So you have the son of David faced with two women, but these two women are in the narrative, icons of a much larger set of issues about will you follow your way and trust his wisdom..

"All right. So teenage Solomon is in a shelter in van Nuys. So I say there for a couple of months, but eventually I my anxiety started kicking in because I didn't like because I was having to face the fact that I had to do adult stuff I had to go and get a job. I get my own apartment. I had to graduate high school and go to college and figure all these things out. And it was all my played all of a sudden. And I was I I didn't know that was it was becoming overbearing. So I had an anxiety attack and lock myself into a bathroom after a few hours of not letting on the contacted a group people that institutionalized me for three days. I got a got an evaluation. They try to figure out what's going on. I will have three days I was placed into facility Inglewood, which I wouldn't say was the best experience. I would probably say it was a low point because I even though I had fairly batting's -iety attack. I that place was not the best place to have any children because it was it was sort of like the middle Bill grant of a prison and an an mental hospital, and it was just like is not conducive to to mental like Hel health. It was very much like you have to endure the situation, and hopefully convince the doctor that you're mentally healthy. And it's it was very performance. It was very much like, I'm fine. Now, you can let me out he Maria Bamford says places like that are are just holding pens. They're just. Yeah. Cages that you wait around in for a while. It's pretty much. Yes. So what did? Do you think was going on with your mind through all this time in Los Angeles? It it was it's still hard to pinpoint because it's been so long. Now, it's been twenty plus twenty years, but it's it was just. It was just just a need to find stability, which I don't think I ever really had like even though my like, my family offered me the most ability I have ever had. But it's it wasn't a healthy situation to be in. So. And just the idea that I had to maintain it myself was also impossible. So like, that's it just every like everything just was overwhelming. So like its till this day. Like, I don't think I've ever been that overwhelmed by anything. Solomon had gone to L A to flee a bad situation and ended up in a bad situation. He did not find stability. He did not find a new life. But while he was there. He performed stand up for the first time. And I was extremely awkward. I was barely able to let it out any of the jokes. I I was booed. And I it's it's shocked me so much. I didn't do set up again for eight more years. He ends up having another panic attack gets institutionalized again for another few weeks by this point. He's been in LA for five months. And that's what pushed me the edge of calling my push me to the edge. And I called my father, which was the only way I could have been taken out of the hospital. And he came picked me up. It was very like like they like that's the things that I know my parents are harsh strict, but they do still have the capability of doing loving things for the. Kids. So that's kind of which is weird aspect of it. Which is. Because that's the thing you have to accept about being an abusive relations ships like they're going to do. Nice things for you. Yeah. So it's what does you for a loop? All the time..

"Honestly, I was very good at it. Growing up. What did mental health mean in your family, and what did homosexuality made in your family? Well, both of those things didn't exist in my like you. I you like mental health like the co like I can already envision how hard my parents would laugh if I try to explain what therapist does to them like it's like what? So you tell them your problems. You can tell us your problems what's wrong with that. Like, it's one of those things where it's such a distant concept to them because it's it's it sounds like a frivolous luxury, and when it comes to mental health and homosexuality that was cons- constantly pointed out as a big is just being morally wrong in every possible way. It was something that both of my parents openly despise and any any sign of me being homosexual was. They like every like at all costs was was deterred were they physically abusive. Oh, of course. Yes. Okay. Any other kind of abusive that was a it was physical and verbal nothing sexual in regards to my parents know, they would never do that to their kids. But definitely belittling us hitting us. And it was especially when you're younger. That's those are the worst memories I have about how of how they were. But over time they sorta figured out that their kids are. There's more of us in them which was handy. And that sort of kind of over time they just learned that we're going to get bigger and stronger than the day had to back away. This is from Solomon's comedy album, homo negro superior. I've been gave for quite some time. And I did I came out when I was eighteen and I I told the world I told my parents, which I don't recommend. Very traditional very up tight African immigrants.

"solomon" Discussed on Stuff They Don't Want You To Know Audio
"There's a ritual right that we undergo as individuals that we undergoes a group will recording that you undergo as you listen, right? And there's something that we're all doing together in a way we're making this strange working together. It is strange and also the ritual. Of it. All is why I get so thrown everytime Matt's not here we get so throwing and we look at each other because we don't know how to start. It's true. It's true. And when we say it's true, we mean it is not just true for us right now, but it is true for all time. You can go back. To the very beginning of our show, and you can hear those moments that we have just described those moments have something called history city. History. Acidy is something that comes up in the search for the key of Solomon as well. History city is just the fun to say word that describes the historical authenticity of a given person place event or thing. I love this word. Yeah. Yeah, it's a great one because when okay. So if you've ever seen those. Specials on the history channel or National Geographic or something wherein they have documentarian say, all right. Now a journey into this mountain in Turkey to search for the real Noah's ark course their questing for history. They won't to prove the legends one example of this that we return to time and time again would be the search for the ancient city of Troy, which was for longtime after was lost. It was believed to be a myth until someone found know it's like we're talking about finding gang cons, burial site, anything, the lost city of Atlanta's, whatever. And it's all kind of myth and and hubbub until you actually do discover something like is that history there? Yes, yes, yes. So multiple scholars, even today's, we record this, they've examined the works describing King Solomon and they've attempted to square these texts with existing physical. Evidence or secular contemporary writing. So non non religious community based. And the debate over this stuff continues today. There are some scholars like this professor Israel Finkelstein who argue that the story surrounding the rule of King Solomon are not factually accurate, and he and people who agree with them do not believe the biblical descriptions of anything should be taken literally wait. So they're saying like Solomon was like a like character, kind of like a made up cartoon, not they're not quite going that far. Often, they're saying that a lot of this stuff attributed to him, I doesn't doesn't count because there are people believe they've found. The tomb of the king of Israel, right? And. You're on your absolutely correct though. In that there are other scholars who totally say, there's there's in Phillip Davis says, Solomon himself is totally invented, made up character. Maybe a maybe a literary device to explain the story of Israel at the time or various other political circumstances. And then there are still other scholars who completely on the other side, like William Deavere who believed that the biblical stories of Solomon and his kingdom are more or less trustworthy. So even now in two thousand eighteen, we have three camps of people. We have group of people say, yes, totally, absolutely. Mostly true. The group of people say, well, something was true, but got exaggerated. And then we have a group of people who are saying bunk, flimflam malarkey in who we all of them all of them. Yeah. So the search for physical evidence that would be the real smoking gun, right? The search physical evidence continues and. In the Middle East today, various people argue that they have found physical evidence of things described in religious works, and then there's another camp of people who argue that these ruins are being purposely conflicted with other ancient stories for one reason or another. One of the big accusations is that these reasons are politically motivated to give one group or another in the modern day, a more quote, unquote, legitimate claim to land. I see. But there's another piece of physical evidence, several pieces that we haven't really talked about what we should at least.
