How a Movement of Cannabis-Fueled Athletes Is Changing the Science of Sports
"Certainly experimented with a lot more more different approaches than just ten to twenty milligram dose of of cbd in writing this book. And i i really thought jus- i like one of the most entertaining. Parts of the book in the early sections was something i was totally unaware of. And that's something called the four twenty games. I didn't know there was such a thing. But i was kind of chuckling reading that section of the book and i'm curious what were the four twenty games those kind of have to do with your initial inspiration for writing this thing. Yeah by that time. I had been using cannabis for a long time personally and had been using it As a runner for maybe about a year at that point and as journalists there been so much to cover in terms of events or news and so for the poor twenty games when it was touring around america in came through boulder was really just another assignment That i had you know. I was curious about other people doing the same thing that high abeille believed i discovered and a lot of people had that story like they thought they were the only ones who like to get high and workout but in terms of a games as competition for twenty games isn't really like it. It's not comparable to the olympics or or any sort of organized sport. It's it's it's more just a An exhibition of of kind There was a four point. Two mile fund. Run run the boulder reservoir when i went there My understanding is that they have bigger events out in la that are a little more competitive But it was there that i met a recall into a wound up being one of the central characters of my book.

Twenty games had come out and do the fun run and talk to people and then after the run there were a lot of tables with all of these different products. Couldn't sell any thc products. But there were a lot of non psychoactive products. They're in really. It was my first entry point to this side of the industry Because the cannabis industry have been around for a few years by that point in their been loads of different types of events but a lot of them were kind of more of the high times stone or culture type events not like exercising athletes. You mean right. Even though that's culture existed at and i don't think it was quite as cohesive because of that fact that a lot of people didn't know that the others who are doing the same thing that they were But when i was out there. I met a lot of people who are like. Yeah i like to smoke a joint and then go lift weights. Or i like to take an edible and then go run a trail so that was one of the early moments where i was like may be more than just a quirky thing that i do or that a handful of people do it may be something.

I had been assigned to cover faith spirituality for abc news. And i didn't want that assignment nine percent this stuff at all. It actually turned out to be great for me.

Yeah or the buddha calls at the monkey mind but i had never heard that theory before. That was a major a moment for me. Because i realized okay. This is just intuitively true. A and b this theory about the human situation that we have this nonstop voice in our heads really explains why how. I had a panic attack. Because the voice in my head my ego my inner narrator Is what sent me off to war zones without thinking about the psychological conferences. And i came home and i got to press. Didn't even really know it. And that did this dumb thing self medicating so that was. That was really interesting to me. And then i started looking at the science. And then i started thinking okay.

Kamala Harris, in Guatemala, Discusses Plan to Deter Migrants
"Is in Guatemala today. If the start of her trip is any sign yesterday, Air Force to had to turn back after take off for a safety check. The assignment is going to be a challenge. Mrs Harris first foreign trip Mission, President Joe Biden gave her find ways to reduce migration to the US by improving conditions in Central America. One of the big challenges in the region is how ineffective governments there have been at solving the simple, grinding problems of daily life in their countries. Speaking from Guatemala City today, Harris said she and Guatemalan President Alejandro Geometry talked about a key issue Corruption on the issue of corruption. Uh, the conversation that I had with President Janet Today was very Frank. And very candid, and I think this is a quality that he and I appreciate in each other. Following all of this is Adrianna Beltran with the watchdog group, The Washington office on Latin America. She said Harris is right to focus on corruption. And unfortunately, over the last several years, what you've seen across the region, including Guatemala has been a backlash against anti corruption, anti impunity efforts and increasingly actions by corrupt elites to undermine democracy and the rule of law. So as long as we're on the subject, explain in simple terms how corruption actually reduces the impact of USA to Central America. When we talk about corruption in Guatemala in Central America, we're not talking about a few bad apples, a few corrupt government officials that accept bribes But what we're talking about is systems that have been put in place where corrupt elites and in the case of Guatemala, increasingly tied to criminal groups have taken hold the government institutions And have used their positions of power to enrich themselves by embezzling millions of public funds at the expense of the majority of the population. You know,

I got more details from our Americas editor Candice Pet Well, this is the third consecutive months of these record figures of deforestation in the Amazon is really raising serious questions about President Jair Bolsonaro's commitments to fighting deforestation. Environmentalists argue that the deforestation levels have been increasing because his policies and his environment minister have been slowly dismantling the legal protection measures. That police and control deforestation in the Amazon. The minister himself is under investigation by prosecutors for alleged involvement in the export of illegal would, for example, to be sold to the European Union and the United States. The Environment Ministry is also frozen funding to the environmental policing body and frozen their normal ability to patrol and monitor deforestation. President Bolsonaro has promised to eradicate illegal deforestation in the Amazon by 2030. Is that even realistic? Well, it's certainly contradicts a lot of what he's been saying.

Everything you Need to Know About Buying From a Wholesaler
"Today's first question comes from read an m. red ass purchasing an assignment from a wholesaler. What do i need to know. They have their own attorneys and title company. Doing all the work. Should i have an attorney. Look over the contract on my side. This is a good question. Because more and more people are actually buying from wholesalers. Right now you should expect to see more of this. The hotter than a markets. When there's plenty of deals on the mls obviously people would rather go to the mls. In order to find properties gets us an agent. They don't have to worry about as much of the due diligence being done on their own without guidance but as wholesaling is becoming more and more popular these type of questions come up a lot more. There's two ways that i've seen wholesale deals go bad. Those are the two things that you want to focus on. The first one is that you don't have a fiduciary representing you in this transaction because there's no real involved which means a due diligence is all on you. I've bought a wholesale before. Where i was told it was fourteen hundred square feet. The property ended up being eleven. Hundred square feet. I took the wholesalers word for it and i didn't do my own due diligence now. The problem is it appraised for exactly the price per square foot that i thought my bird woulda went perfect but because there was three hundred square feet. I actually didn't have any equity in the deal. And i ended up paying market value for that eleven hundred square foot house thinking it was fourteen hundred square feet. So what am i getting at. Make sure that you're doing the due diligence and you're getting a home inspection on a property. That's coming from a wholesaler. Now a lot of wholesalers to pay cash for a property. You can pay cash and still get an inspection contingency. You need to talk to the wholesaler and see has inspections been done on this property. And what is my timeline to back out after. I'm doing inspections now. They probably won't call an inspection contingency because you're not getting the same type of a purchase agreement that you get with the realtor so the question you need to ask the wholesaler is. Hey if i have the put it oposite down. do i have to get that deposit back or be. If i move forward with this house can i just not put. It applies it down. So i could get some inspections done and if it doesn't look good i'll get out

impeachment trial that they could just move to acquit and how does that work part of the ball for one one three were have loads the bold move to do that we can just end it okay what does it mean on vinyl for that you try to figure out okay and it there was trying to explain this scene okay Mitch is reportedly close to finalizing a rule that would allow trumps team to move to dismiss the articles of impeachment quickly after some evidence has been presented they say a sort of a safety valve in case Democrats try to drag the trial for weeks okay and as we understand it I to figure out okay how does this whole thing go down there's four phases to the trial there's the opening arguments H. cash is that going to be painful on and on and on then senators questions then witnesses then the closing arguments so the question is during which phase might there conceivably be fifty one votes to dismiss the articles of impeachment may is that one do you have to go through do you get to the witnesses how does that work because there are different people's even within the GOP that have different goals there are some other GOP senators are like yes this is nonsense you saw was nonsense in the house we're going to kill it on arrival and that will be good for them politically as well in their home state but for someone like Susan Collins they it's kinda iffy she's won this to play out to say we were fair about this we heard everybody we really considered the articles of impeachment before we voted on it so that's the question of how many gonna go to him yeah are you getting more interested or less as it goes on trial I would be all for this I mean I would man you know the kill switch also known as old Yeller put out the fashion out back and voted down yeah I mean she's that's

comes to the presidential election is we're seeing the stores across the country more and more and especially different liberal cities are pretty lax when it comes to crime when it comes to homeless we have that peace will was Tucker Carlson that their last week talking about San Francisco and you steal anything well it's a citation still anything under nine hundred dollars citation people don't show of course not so you get another citation then they don't show up again but there's no law and order for so many different things and I couldn't believe the store when I saw it so you know six click bait click on it and KTLA had the story of this homeless guy trying to abduct his six year old girl from her mom I'll just take it from the news reporter family says that the man appeared to be on some pretty heavy drugs giving him super human strength they say they credit the little girl's uncle and his army background with saving her watch is is homeless man allegedly tries to repeatedly kidnap a little girl right into her mother's arms in Venice beach on Saturday night six year old new Vegas says she was terrified also scary following my eyes out because I was so scared and getting it taken away from my mommy and Daddy Hey man you know because this dude walks up to were I mean it's hard to paint a picture he looks like he could be a slayer tribute band and it's coming up to the kid and screaming this nonsense she's not safe I need to take her well I get back and so it was the brother in law did first kind of shoved him back to say this Cyprus families beach outing turned into a frightening evening out the V. as bawling her eyes out that she is on any ready to take career for me prior to the scene at this Washington Boulevard restaurant they say the man tried to **** the via on the beach well she was with her dad and uncle Hey you watch right up to these people have been arrested several times this guy has quite a record but they just keep letting him back out which is so infuriating and so then you get near the end of the story and you I think you saw the video yes I did with that her uncle grabbed him by the hair and took him to the ground and the two brothers held him down until police arrived and arrested him for attempted kidnapping was just so strong whatever use on it was just too much that's terrifying I mean you have to act of course my gosh this happens all the time and to me if you are one for law and order and you're running a campaign that's something you can definitely run on well because most people even those as we know on the left there are plenty but still want lawn order the select few are the quote progressive you get what I'm saying is a huge difference there and so the piece ends horrible we didn't even notice how many homeless people tell after everything happened there's a lot of homeless Venice beach yeah Jennifer just there yeah a couple of times last year do you want to go because it's beautiful but at same time what a mess and the family tells us that it actually took six the police officers to finally cuff this suspect he has to say the family does not intend to go to the beach this weekend instead they're gonna head on up to the mountains really no wonder why wonder why so many people are leaving the state well those other story today the Illinois released over one thousand illegal aliens under the sanctuary laws in cook county almost eleven hundred add that these people have by the way committed crimes as they've been here they came here legally then committed a crime got arrested now they're free those same things going on in New York went to Bosnia just insane so if your trunk don't you say look at all the city's absolutely with the liberal policies you could say people have great intentions but this is the result yes you can't have a society this way right you have to ask yourself under what planet do you live on where this is a good idea no idea man manages over the jails let everybody out what the hell meanwhile speaking California do we heard a lot about Oscar controversy yesterday there were no female directors that were admitted at you know I don't want to get into all of that you know I brought it up yesterday and that Werther female directors that could have been nominated I guess the woman who directed little women what happened has been considered okay outside of that the list was pretty sparse and it is the belief really because she was a woman that's why I said no no thanks to her but the real listen to I guess on okay well we know one person who got snubbed was Adam Sandler and I haven't seen on cut gems as some people love that movie some people like it you're completely tense the entire time you watch the movie but everybody said Adam Sandler's grade these you know is acting is so much better than it usually is with his light stuff but he was not nominated but I love the way he handled it very much took it in stride using the water

"Camp is off on special assignment. He'll be back on Monday, Scott Robbins in for David wick, the Notre Dame cathedral fire somebody having my tinfoil hat. Thank you. Let me put that on. Go ahead. Investigators in Paris are saying they believe an electrical short-circuit is most likely to cause behind the massive fire at Notre. Do you believe in it? No. That's why head on. That's what I thought since you're wearing that his blinding me. I know the French. That's just my regular ahead. Yeah. The French judicial police. Said they were talking about that they're sifting through the rubble right now. Authorities say was an accident. Probably the result of restoration work at the what was going to be a fix of the ceiling of this thing, some fist fifty investigators are actively working on the case they have yet to finish. All their interviews with workers that were there. That's where it started in the roof of the cathedral. That's where they had been working. And they're saying now, it seems to be electrical in nature. Okay. Which of course, means that that no one set fire to it like, they're setting fire to other churches and Christian organizations around the country. This one's different. It was done by electrical fire. Okay. All right here. Move on. But they can't quite get it at totally investigate because it's unsafe unsafe to enter, and they have tracked down all the workers that had been involved in the process either. Okay. So is it safe to say just how much conspiracy or after here is it that I know in my heart someone set that fire or you sort of like what I think is a lot of us saying it could have been. But if we find out in the end it was set on purpose. I wouldn't be shocked. I don't know if we're ever going to find out whether it was set on purpose or not. Yes. Because I mean all hell can break loose. If that were the case, there's always going to be out in your mind. Well, yes, yes. But I prefer to go tell you what that was not electrical fire. Yeah. Yeah. Well, I don't know if you saw this the Washington Post. Yes. They sort of feel good about all of the fundraising. That's been done. Should. I mean, I mean, despite the fact it's a lot of money. And despite the fact, there's other things I suppose that money could go towards people feel that way about it. They feel generous to get it restored back to the tourist attraction was and and for the symbolism represents. So they're writing their own checks. Well, nothing wrong with that, man. If you if you've got a little extra money, and you want to give it to that then far bid for me to tell you. Otherwise, you have it for some this is an example of everything wrong class warfare to ethnic identity. Oh, Mike all points in between. Yeah. You got French billionaires coming to the rescue of a French national wonder. Isn't that sort of white privilege? No, upper crust nutri. This from hot air. Part of the peace talks about a leader from the yellow vest movement, those guys protesting inequality a lot of demonstrations since the middle of November, right? Saying, you know, the donations essentially confirm their broader social critique saying if they can give tens of millions to rebuild Notre Dom the nation. Stop telling us there's no money to help with the social emergency. You're not buying into that. No, I'm so bored with the whole idiocy of that those remarks in that conversation. Okay. We can't simply just be people want to rebuild the structure that means a lot to them. Whether it's because of the religious part of it, the nationalism the historical part of it architectural don't care. Nobody's going to yellow jacket and going give me some money, and I'm going to hold a gun to your head until you do or anyone else for that matter. People are freely giving it up and saying this is what I wanna do it. My money. Fired up today, man, I'm telling you, I know woke up this morning. I stood in a corner. Beat my head against about ten minutes before even got here today. Oh, man. There's a lot of good things happening in the world. I really are. Good Friday and Easter Sunday, and well, listen. And if you just go about your business most days. Yeah. You see a lot of good people in the world. You really do. I do you pay attention to news too long without a sense of humor. Oh, geez. No. I try to maintain it even with the mullahs report coming out yesterday and switching gears here, there's massive amount of fighting both sides, and you know, there are some people working today democrat or Republican, and they're just going back and forth, hoping hopefully good-naturedly sometimes doesn't work that way. But in the end, we just try to boil it down to who does it help politically in the end because that's what it sort of comes down to. But then we always wonder about the marriage of George Conway Kellyanne Conway, I do. And I know the easy take is that's their marriage is none of our business. And I get it. That is true. But is it improper to wonder how that works because they seem so opposite in their opinion of the president. Oh, I think one works for one hates. We getting played Scott being married is hard enough hard enough when you get along on certain things when you do collectively believed. I don't know. Here's the thing. Man. I can tell you that right now you're gonna probably be with someone at some point in your life. If you aren't already who doesn't like some of the same things you like in terms of music, and pop culture, and and other things two things, I think you have to agree on you have to agree on religion, you have to because that can tear people apart. If one is in one isn't as the kids. Oh my God. Forget it. And number two is politics. I mean, I could be with a vagina hat wearer. I mean, I'm serious. But it wouldn't work for me. Right. But you would work for her either. So you have people that are married, and then one finds faith and the other one doesn't that? And they did it, but it's difficult guess or once political views of all over time, and they're not on the same this. This is a little different when you're telling the world screwed this. My wife's an idiot. I'm going to do what I want Kellyanne Conway out yesterday. And we both admired what she says accepting apologies and people should feel good about this report and its conclusions. Make people feel very good about feel really great that campaign that I managed to successful end did not collude with any Russians..

It took big moments to come away with the victory actually thought you're a week late on your Halloween costume good morning. And I had had hair took me a while to get the hair go. But now that you're here. It's been awhile since you've seen me play with my Joe, he's like he's right. It's always closed doors, but I get to play with my Joey Kevin Harvick clearly put a waxing on the field yesterday had no issues as execution was perfect. And he was able to maintain the lead on a late restart with Ryan Blaney who the previous restart was able to start on the outside lane drive around him and get away from Kevin and Kevin was able to track them down. And. That's the last restart. Kevin said, I learned something there. Yeah. I'm going to take the outside lane and prevent you from getting to the corner, and it was able to bring that car home to victory lane for his eighth victory. This year. Those guys have been pretty good. They've been very good. And obviously with the wind that's a top ten finish so free blooming onions, Monday night tonight. Go into your out back home. Kevin Harvick sent you know what when he wins. They should give you a free beer too. That'd be that'd be awesome. That'd be a lot. Yeah. That'd be right. You'd be eight beers this year more than I've had. Yeah. Well, there you go exciting action. And then you're the truck series delivered. Heartbreak for Christopher bell there at the end. But amazing job. I just in Hailey working his way into the championship four in Miami. And then Cole Custer with an amazing surviving. Yep. Surviving the expended race at Texas in an amazing. Just great racing. All around the X's Todd Gillian almost had a second truck win. But he's yet to win the truck series because he comes to the. The checker with one to go and can't have enough gas to get to the end hands that s- third winning a year for Justin Haley who puts to geometrics we had Johnny solder on last week. And he said his goal was to get Justin Haley into homestead boom, nothing. He had anything to do with it. But man, he's right there. Christopher bell. Who's won more races this year? Wrecks on the first lap starting on the pole. You'd think hey, I'm going to be on the poll. It's going to be a good time. But that new treacherous turns one and two in Texas really make it difficult to get going on on newer tires recalled or tires. It. Just doesn't offer the grip as we've seen a couple of last races in Kansas. We saw big wrecks off return to this took not Christopher bell out. But he definitely got squirrelly early. And then couldn't make it back up. Cole Custer gets back to homestead to raise for a championship. Who won that race last year? Yeah. Cole coaster dominated by fifty are thirteen second lead on second. We finished second with the Penske car with Sam Hornish, and he dominated. So that'll be curious turn of events to see him go there and. As for a championship for his first fulltime year in the expanding series. Yeah. But obviously the main event yesterday in Texas was the monster energy NASCAR Cup series. It came down to a final into the ratio between Ryan Blaney.

And Danny said, we'd like you to talk about Burt Reynolds. And you said, well, if funny I just read the what Sellafield's autobiography that in a in. It's not out yet. No, I think it comes out. We'll she is here for talking volumes. October twentieth or something I think the book might come out the first week of October. Don't quote me on that. Okay. It's roughly that timeframe. So this is her memoir. Yep. That's called pieces. Okay. And he doesn't come off well in it. In fact, none of them in our life. Come very well in it. She kind of depicts him as a turning her into his servant girl, bringing him chicken soup when he wasn't feeling good and always expecting her to be by his side. And I mean, and I think this is actually been reported pretty widely too in him not being by her side. For instance, when she won her Oscar for Norma Ray, which was while they were together. Why wasn't he there? He well. I think maybe it was depicted as he didn't want to distract the spotlight away from her because he was such the big celebrity biggest movie star in the world. Win something when she didn't he had visor against taking the part, according to her and. Lots of he was not super supportive of her of her career got it from a different generation. Let's true. Although that generation still can be support. Okay. So you were talking about some of the roles that he turned down. Yeah. I was just reading I think this is from the autobiography that he wrote that he was offered JAMES BOND at one point. Thanks emery. And he was supposedly offered Hans solo. He for sure was offered. And in fact, I think almost started rehearsals the role that had an ended up winning an Oscar for Jack Nicholson in terms of endearment. I don't know what happened if it was the scheduling thing or what? But that's the also one flew over the cuckoo's nest. I think he had a shot. I read that one. But yeah. So a couple of Jack Nicholson roles I mean, they are roughly the same. Well, actually, Jack Nicholson's movie career probably started slightly earlier. They're about the same time friend. Two. He's gotta be. I think he's eighty at the very earliest. Yeah. Isis been lying low going to Lakers past decade. He was in movies in the late fifties. He's eighty one is so peer of Burt Reynolds.
