Sebene Selassie on Bringing Mindfulness into Every Part of Our Lives
"Seven it is such a pleasure to have you on untangled today. Thank you so much for being with us. Thank you, Patricia for having me. I want to start by asking you a little bit about your childhood. So why don't you tell us what were you like as a ten year old girl? How would you describe yourself? Wow ten years old. So I was born in Ethiopia. My mom was GPO Oban, my dad's Airtran, and we came to this country when I was three. And we moved into a very white upper middle class neighborhood in Washington northwest. Upper northwest DC, and at ten years old I would say I was pretty confused though. I lived at home, which was not very assimilated. So we ate you in food my parents spoke to us in. Iraq, we were part of that point small community of Ethiopian xlt now DC the DC areas large huge argest community business country. But at that time, there were only a few families and. We were all pretty tight and then my world of the neighborhood and school was very white, very upper middle class and it was confusing to move between those two worlds. So I was a Latchkey kid both my parents worked a so at ten years old coming home and spending time with my intellectually disabled sister who I felt pretty responsible for even though she's four years older than me. And I was learning how to navigate these two worlds, the world of home and Ethiopian culture and then the world of school and American media I watched a lot of TV I think I learned a lot about the culture around me from TV in popular culture, which probably not the best place to start understand your life and world so shy introverted. I was smart but did not do well in school at all at that age, and honestly, if there could have been a diagnosis at the time I was probably really depressed or at least Melancholic I. Think it had to do a lot with not understanding how these two different realities together he added. So in writing because at ten years old to feel that split between. Your experience at home in your experience at school can be so overwhelming and do you feel like you tried to Numb your feelings and just do what you need to do every day help your sister go to school what was your experience going through that time in your life I was very athletic kid at that age probably found a lot of release and any joy through sports through climbing trees through riding my bike riding skateboards soberly through my body and I lost that in my early adolescence, which is interesting. That was probably where could find a sense of belonging or connection. But in terms of school and relationships, I was a tomboy. So I didn't fit in with my girlfriends I remember going to sleepovers and friends wanting to play Barbie or dolls, and I just had no interest in that whatsoever. And I in a neighborhood full of boys. So I think I took a lot of refuge in physical play in activity and when I didn't have that I remember being numbed by television I watched a lot of TV as a kid they wanna get to this later the themes of your upcoming book and these themes of belonging and identity, and it's so interesting that. Your world was so focused on this kind of split identity as you were growing up and I think I've read that you started learning to meditate when you were a teenager is that right? What was your first experience there? Yeah. My brother, who's eight years older than me was probably as confused terms of his sense of identity and he became what's colloquially known as. Now, when I was fifteen or sixteen So my first introduction to eastern religions and spirituality and philosophy was through him and he was reading the I ching back of Gita and. Also had some Buddhist books at the time. So I started reading those things also started going to the street temple in downtown DC where a lot of punk rock kids hang out too. So it was kind of a cool scene at that point and started going to Cure Thanh chanting going to lectures and started to meditate very berry intermittently I didn't know what was doing. So by the time I got to my first year university, I started taking religion classes and ended up majoring in religious studies with a focus on Hindus men but. My entry way into, but just philosophy and thought was through that.

Former IBM CEO weighs in on TikTok deal
"Dance to find a way to restructure Tic Tacs. U. S operations or face US shutdown is looming with Secretary Venusian, saying it has to be resolved by this weekend, and reports are that Oracle is the partner trying to get that deal done. Welcome. Now, someone who is no stranger to doing big tech deals with Chinese Sam Palmisano was for many years. IBM is President Seo, including when the company's sold. It's PC business. So long go back in 2005. We welcome now back to Bloomberg. Great to have you here, Sam. So I say you've actually been through this process. Give us what you learned from that process that Oracle maybe facing right now. Well, thank you, Devon. Thank you for having me. I mean the process itself. Let me just frame it on the sense that we had a period time What they were better relations relations between the two countries. I mean, China, the United States and China was also in a different phase of their growth strategy, and they were still inclined to create global businesses that could be held in China that could expand Beyond their domestic market, so the circumstances were quite different than they are today. Having said that it's an extremely complicated process is run by Treasury. That's a fair process. They make a recommendation to the president states for approval. But normally at least in our case in the process, it becomes political. In that case, then, basically because we were signed an asset that we believe was just going to be commoditized. It was not a lot of technical differentiation and a PC as you see today, but fundamentally of the various parties on the hill got engaged, and it made it complicated, which meant we had to go through a second review, which prolonged everything, which puts the deal in jeopardy issue. They say time kills deals, but fundamentally, we hung in there and we got approval from both governments would perceive it. It's clear and nothing else is clear. It's clear that whatever Tic Tac has is not commoditized, use your word. Whether it's the algorithms being used, or the date of the personal data, which seemed to be the real center piece of the concern of national security, and therefore this deal is more complicated. How you really protect those data. Is that the big sticking point as far as you can tell I think it isyou know, I really do think it's It's a combination of the algorithms and the personal data on the the amount of the personal data and that's called the uses of the personal data now, their solutions that could be having been shutting people down those sorts of things, and I really do think that There's a pragmatic solution on the table that perhaps both governments could approve. That would at least take one issue off the temple in the U. S China relations and Let me explain what I mean by that, the current what I read anyway. Like you. We only know it's been reported, is that bike dance would maintain majority share of Tic Tac, but they would create a global entity that would be held the United States. Mark will be a technology partner and provide that infrastructure e clown except which makes sense for article on maybe by doing this sort of thing. If you can solve the issues around personal data and the uses of personal data, protect people's privacy that could be resolved. But you still the government approval on both sides and the Chinese also have the equivalent of devious In their in their processes. Well, yeah, it's clear that the Chinese have really a dog in this fight without a doubt. But is it possible from your experience to really for the US government to really be assured that those personal data cannot go back to the Chinese government is I think that was the thing that we're concerned about, right? Well, absolutely, And basically, you know the complicated thing here. We don't have any details. Let's start with the structure itself. The majority owner being bike dances. It's obviously a Chinese company. What's the government's model? Who's on the board of that house? Did any operate? They have passive investor, right you on and on and on, is in a financial deal. There's an operation if it's an operational deal, because we're complicated now as faras protecting the day that exists if it's all housed in the United States. It's somewhat easier, but nonetheless, I mean information's gonna be flying across the world, So you're always gonna run the risk of any us any nation or really any happier being able to get into that kind of an infrastructure. Now, having said that? I mean, I think a partner like Arco or an IBM enterprise tech companies have a lot of experience of protecting data. They do this for themselves and for large enterprises. Probably a better partner than let's say, your traditional consumer tech company might be able to provide. Well, that's exactly my question, because I don't think of oracles being a consumer facing tech business. Unlike a Microsoft or unlike a Google or a Facebook, why does this make sense strategically for Oracle? Oh, I think it actually thie take about clouds in the emerging architecture for computing in the future are co is way behind as it is, I'd be having made the other traditional enterprise players and leaders as we all know where Amazon and catching up his Microsoft, so to them. It gives them I think an entry point with a very large social media company into the infrastructure. I think we'll give them credibility and cloud and a moving into the future. So from that perspective to teach me that makes a heck of a lot of sense. They're going to be a minority investor. It's almost like an outsourcing deal and in the sense that you operate people's assets for them. But you acquired his assets and the acquisition is access will be equity get only is buy bread, so I don't have any insight to that. So you know they'll make an investment. They'll get the outsourcing of the infrastructure that would be House United States. And that will create jobs. I don't know if it's 25,000 or not. I mean, you're the reason why 25,000 to me. Sounds like a large numbers. Because Facebook is bigas. They are only has 75,000 employees. And finally, Sam. What if, In fact, it does not get approved if in the end President Trump says, I don't like this. What does that mean? Maybe for Oracle, but more importantly, for bike dance. Well, I think at the end of the day, I mean, well, they shut them down. I don't know, You know, I mean, I think quite honestly there ways to solve these problems are national security concerns concerns. I can understand that it's really the bigger issue is protecting protecting people's personal information. In fact, the matter is that David that you go all that information's already been hacked. I mean, I know everybody forgets about the OPM Hack and the IRS hack well that there's a ton of personal information's already been hacked his eyes over the world. I assume in China's well there's tons of personal information are ready on the Internet everyday based upon people's user. Behavior and what they do on the Internet. So I mean, I do think it's necessary and it companies need to protect people's privacy in the data, But I'm not sure that this deal represents what's necessary to solve that problem. Fascinating. Thank you so much salmon. Nobody. I'd rather talk to about this than you. That's former IBM CEO Sam Palmisano. More

"Health officials say a covert outbreak in Temple University appears to be getting under control. So they worry about other college campus is here in our city Hall bureau chief Pat Lobe has the update. Health Commissioner Tom Farley says the number of new cases a temple is going down, as is the percent of positive results from testing, he adds. There's no evidence the virus spread into the community around Temple, but campuses have turned out to be hot spots across the country. And doctor Farley is asking all the cities college is to do what they can to keep students socially. Distant social gatherings appear to be the greatest risk. We continue to hear about parties. They were reported to us by number of students where there's at least one suit who tested positive. So far, the case numbers have been low. Elsewhere, 68 cases at Penn and about 20 each at Drexel in ST Joe's. Overall, the city is back on a stable track with just over 100 new cases a day for the second week. And 90% compliance with mask use in a survey of retail stores. Doctor Farley says he hopes for no spikes associated with indoor dining and he'll be studying the governor's new guidance before deciding if endure. Dining. Khun B. Expanded Pat
How The Consensus Voting Mechanism Works
"So my name is Mush. Pot. Suzuki like the car last year a student at Yale University in Computer Science and mathematics and I'm supervised by Adrian Vata and from goalie. I'm very happy to be here and thank you for inviting me. I got exposed to your work. When I read the paper, I invited you to come on and talk about mostly today is how many freemasons are there consensus voting mechanisms in metric space so no less than three interesting ideas for me in the title maybe we should give some background to open up with consensus. What does that mean is that? Just the majority or how will we be using the word today? Consensus mechanism is Mecca Zeman which to select a candidate they're only if everyone agrees on it for instance, they said you're running for some group Peter, you get accepted only if everyone in the group agrees on it and you want you accepted otherwise. so that's like unanimity the Neha in here. Yeah. It's basically the same as unanimity but in different. Settings. Unanimity also implies that it's a property where you have if everyone agrees on that, you accept it but something can happen. If you know, let's say you can use different rules otherwise there's a different sort distinctions there, but it's basically the same as unanimity that particular choice leads to some interesting things and you guys are presented this really concise analogy to the freemasons. Well, I suppose getting down to the actual counter freemasons trying to conduct a census here that just formalizes. A funny title to give because as you know that freemasons are interesting sort of group there. Member only if everyone agrees on sort of it, fits our mechanisms today run their group through consensus voting Gotcha so it wouldn't surprise me if just given how much sort of folklore the surrounds the freemasons that there might be at least a few listeners confused about whether or not there are real organization. Could you throw a few facts Edis? have. Amazing temples in Montreal, phrases, I live in Montreal. So they have a huge temple here and they're very active and I don't know too much about their inner workings or I've never been inside the doors but they're very oh yeah you can go to their building for instance so real organization and in terms of getting accepted into it if I wanted to go in that building up there in. Montreal is this the actual mechanism they literally use or is this a sort of an analogy? So I don't know this for sure but I heard I read online that in order to get accepted that everyone in taboo are everyone in that group has agree on it. So is the medicine that they actually use. Cool. Well, I guess whenever that started it wouldn't be surprising that it could grow quickly. Right, if I was thinking of starting my own such organization and I I, invited my wife. Now we have two members and perhaps she and I can agree her sister joins and my sister joins. But at some point, someone's going to say no to the next member what can we learn about that and how do we study it? What are the interesting Totta questions? So you have two different settings. Here. So wondering is not remodeled people's opinions and you say I prefer my wife says I prefer my daughter you know or or so and so forth we need to the preferences of people. So one of the classic ideas in voting theory and actually just modeling through machine learning or any sort of the setting is this prioritizing people's opinion or privatizing people. So for instance, let's say you could be. Leaning like the political left or right. There's a spectrum for which you are lighted. Let's sure you can be at the centre or you could be very right thing or it could be a very level. So we can model that as any number between minus one and one, but two one being the right-wing minus one being the left-wing. So then that's one example of how you prioritize people right? Because you wanted to this rigorously and mathematically. So we need a method to represent people and our model is at. ISSUE, have this in which you represent urine. You couldn't space in some point. Is You your opinion and you vote for someone who similar to? Let's say you're very right wing than some candidate comes in then you're more likely to vote for someone who is right being than left-wing to someone who is closer to you in opinion or characteristic that's our model of but this question was asked actually before in one emissions but in one dimension. So you're basically just have an inch between minus one and one, and this was an extra Unin by very famous. Nogal. Yes. Paper in two, thousand, sixteen, two, thousand, fourteen I forget. But we did this in higher dimensions in actually specifically two dimensions because it introduces so much more complexity when you go up in a dimension, right so Francis, why do we need higher dimensions is because before you you're presenting people left and right but people are more complex than that. You can't just represent a person by just one number for instance you. have to use multiple features as people say. So you have this multiple characteristics of people and they become dimension. So we do this in two missions surprisingly the mathematical difficulty of asking this question John Huge becomes actually much more difficult in two dimension than one dish very interesting and I guess maybe the answers grounded in a lot of details. But is there an essence to what that challenges is it that there are more simulations or? Is there a complexity theory aspect of this? Why is a two dimension so much more difficult than one so for instance, if you look at random shape, you can characterize this voting as looking at something called random convex or some random shapes. The question bows down on understanding certain random shapes and here assuming that the candidates are appearing. Let's say uniformly at on interval you have existing group members and she accepts somebody then he becomes. Group member and you evolve. So the candidates are uniform at each time step and so to answer the question we knew looking at this sort of random judge shapes in one dimension there's only one shape is just an interval intimate conviction in one dimension is just an interval. Some number between attack could be minus zero point five to zero point one is, but let's say you go into the mission all of a sudden there's so Many different shapes so many different things second happen if the shape is convinced or even just not convex in two dimensions does different more complex shapes can get in one mission. You only have interested in two dimensions you have gone as you have China goals, you have something that approximates your face even that could be shade in two missions, but that's not going to happen in Wand mission
Celebrating #BlackJewishUnity Week with the National Urban League
"Next week, two of the world's foremost human relations organizations the National Urban League and J. C. will unite against surging levels of Anti Semitism and racism to declare black Jewish unity week. Together, we will strengthen ties between our nations black and Jewish communities and combat all forms of hate. To discuss the importance of this event and to talk about the challenges of fighting racism I'm joined now by Clint Oda, the National Urban League Senior Vice President for Policy Advocacy and the Executive Director of the Urban League's Washington Bureau Clint, thank you so much for joining us. It's a pleasure to be with you. Now this special week, this black Jewish unity week is not happening in vacuum. It's happening because of rising antisemitism and racism in this country my listeners here plenty about antisemitism. So I just wanted to start by asking you this. It's been a Helluva summer. How are you? I would describe myself as weathered a little bit. We've been going through this quite some time this summer at least the notoriety of these police incidents are is much higher than it has been in the past. So we're we're hanging in there. We don't have a choice. Because this work is so important. And it really does reinvigorate me to see that we've got allies in this fight and we've always had allies in this fight but to see them step up in the way that they have his really reinvigorated me and I'm very excited to keep the fight going. I'm sure that our listeners are familiar with the name, the Urban League because it is etched into the annals of history of this country and anyone who knows anything about the civil rights movement will know the names of the Urban League of the ACP Snick we can go deeper also start really getting to the deep cuts. Tell us a little bit about. What the Urban League has been up to lately and what you've been up to especially over the summer in the wake of the George Floyd killing and other events in recent months while we're one, hundred, ten year old civil rights and Economic Empowerment Organization and we have been working on I'd like to say ending systemic racism for the past one. Hundred Years. we've been doing that through our programs such as making. Housing more Ford audible teaching people how to purchase homes how to stay in homes. We've been helping people to get work meaningful work they can sustain them and their families. We've been working the traditional voting rights area and civil rights area for the entirety of our existence but social justice is taken on a real importance in our work right now as as well as doing all this work in the midst of a pandemic So that's so interesting what you say about systemic racism and then specifically citing home-buying and things like that. You didn't mention education, but I think there's a pretty robust education. Portfolio at the National Urban League as well. Absolutely I think if you look at AJC's goals and National Urban League goals, you'll see mirror images of each other. That's been the real cool thing about this that this partnership and all of these things that people are talking about and I'll show my millennial miss. All of the things that people are are posting on instagram talking about explaining what systemic racism is and why you know wealth divides between black and white communities are so important and underpin. So many elements of of racial injustice today all of those things are things that the National Urban League is. Working on absolutely and I can't say that when I started about a year and a half ago I spent the previous ten years working in the United States Senate including four vice presidential nominee Senator Kamala Harris. I believe crazy how these things happen working for her and the agenda that she pursued is so consistent with the work that I'm doing today. One of the first things we did when we walked into the place is lead a resolution condemning hate antisemitism anti racism xenophobia homophobia. It's as important to her as it was to me and so coming here was just a natural extension of that but. As I was saying just the Times in which we live are so unique and perilous parallels between the early nineteen sixties which I'm sure we'll talk more about and today are really really compelling. It's almost like we're back in the sixties again, I want to go there right now because this week is going to be all about black Jewish. Relations and the story of black Jewish relations is not a new odd. We might be writing a new chapter, but there's a whole book that comes before us here. So what's one element clint of the Black Jewish relationship that has meant a lot to you personally. I would probably say the religious and spiritual aspect of the relationship. Growing up as a as a young kid in the deep South. There were a lot of Jewish people around although they were president. We didn't know it I grew up Protestant Christian and a great story is on Sundays. We were always able to use the parking lot of the temple across the street and it used to just puzzled me is to how generous the temple folks could be. Given that they must have services on Sunday to. Eat of the temple was empty or they were just being generous over time and as I moved out of south, then went to law school and live here on the East Coast I. got a much greater appreciation, not only for the religion. My Wife, for instance, used to teach at a Jewish day camp in new Rochelle New York but just meeting. So many friends of the Jewish faith drawing those connections between my own faith and their own and. Also learning the rich history of black Jewish communities especially in the era of civil rights as a lawyer was a big fan is that really don't have you could come up with a Thurgood Marshall and no understanding of the work at the end of Lacey P., Legal Defense Fund was complete without understanding the role that Jack Greenberg played and lots of other Jewish folks in philanthropy in spirituality and pursue the nonviolence movement just a wonderful partnership over the years. As a religious person myself that resonates with me a lot as it happens our listeners probably talk about this before for college I went to a joint program between Columbia University and the Jewish illogical seminary and actually not migration at the graduation of the class ahead of me which attended representative John Lewis spoke, and of course, John Lewis all of our listeners will remember passed away this summer I think he actually was an ordain ministered and he told a story that I'm sure you've heard before because I've heard until it multiple times of preaching to his chickens in Troy. Alabama and that had a certain resonance in this audience of basically all Jews including some we're going on into the rabbit. Those ties between our communities where were not everyone is a person of faith but certainly, there is deep faith and religious history kind of threaded throughout our communities I think those are really really powerful things to focus on. And I hope over time you take a look at surveys of religion in the country in other pugh has done some study in this area religion is trending down a little bit. Don't always necessarily consider themselves religious if you look at community surveys and so it's really important to reinvigorate this relationship and put it on a firm spiritual pudding in Judeo Christian tradition is so rich in the African American community and there's just so much there to really build on. I'm really looking forward to getting that history more prominently understood and remembered in our communities. So when we're talking about black Jewish unity right and we're talking about building black Jewish unity they're really two levels to it, and this is something that we talk about with a lot of our advocacy work. At AJC, there's the grassroots and there's the grass tops right. I want to ask you about both. Let's start with the grass tops right at the high profile level at the celebrity role model level, the politician level what do you think? Needs to happen there to demonstrate the Jewish people and black people should work together and are stronger together. The grass tops may be one of the more important roles in unity and understanding. We are a celebrity driven culture for better or for worse and ideas have a lot more resonance and a lot more acceptance when someone that you know and admire to saying the same thing. So grass tops to that extent are the key in moving opinion. Notions like reparations notions like black lives matter notions like social justice have mood and pretty quickly I think because athletes because celebrity on television and other artists have been saying the same thing and in a short period of time we've seen. Opinions shift in this country not just age not just religion not just race, but everything seems to be moving in the right direction from a popular standpoint. The grass roots which we're going to talk about next is where you really determine how sustainable this movement is. Right. Yeah. So tell us about that I mean in our neighborhoods and our schools in our churches, our synagogues mosques, how can we strengthen those relations? Sure. I've seen a lot of encouraging evidence that we can do this at grassroots level. This is a very human. Very, empathetic movement when we're talking about grassroots, we've seen some of these grassroots efforts come up in. Pittsburgh for instance and New Jersey. And in Brooklyn where when horrible acts of hate murder violence take place the communities come together and they usually come together I with religion. It's the pastors it's the churchgoers. It's the temple goers that really give me some hope that we aren't just a moment, but that we're in a movement. So I think in many ways, the church and the faith community are are in central piece of grassroots. That's kind of what I'm seeing sort of on the ground right now I think black Jewish unity week can drive those grassroots even deeper because understanding the tragedy of the moment is not nearly as important as understanding these deep historical ties right in our faith and our families and what we want from each other in shared history sometimes things that aren't so great sometimes shared history of oppression. Lutely, and for our listeners WHO WANNA learn more about black Jewish unity week, they should go to AJC, dot org, slash black, Jewish unity, or text black Jewish unity all one word to five to eight, eight nine not to keep hitting the faith note here you know we're we're a pretty secular organization in JC but I love what you said about the houses of worship I live on the upper west side of Manhattan which is this incredible. Kind of Jewish bastion historic whatever and if you go twenty blocks down for me in twenty blocks up for me, you probably are GonNa pass by twenty synagogues total and we're also steps away, I mean. We're a mile two miles away from Harlem and the two neighborhoods are very different and that's something that's worth exploring as well. Why that is how that happened etcetera, the strengths and the challenges of both communities, but I was in synagogue on. Chabad after the shooting in Muncie and Lo and behold there in the front row, was a a delegation from church in Harlem that wanted to come in and to be there and to show solidarity, and they got up and spoke after services, and then fast forward to this summer were all obviously in lockdown. But the rabbi of the synagogue made kind of Zoom appearance at that churches services after the killing of George Floyd talk about solidarity with. The black community in the wake of the killings of and Taylor George Floyd and so many of the challenges of injustice that are being faced right now and I think you're right that the grassroots level it. So often does start in those kinds of houses of worship, our religious leaders reaching out one to the other in something that you said, really struck me about the proximity of Latte community and Jewish community in relatively small plot of land. As a policy Wonk I'm sure you appreciate this but either just for the benefit of your listening audience, blacks and Jews were both subject to the same kinds of redlining restrictions in many ways throughout much of the United States where banks would identify areas and they would say this is a desirable area in this is a less desirable area, and so you know Jewish and black families were often circumscribed by these lending lines that still have an ongoing lingering vestige today. If you look at housing segregation patterns certainly in the African. American community they are just as bad as they were in the nineteen sixties things like bike homeownership, which is at a low point especially because pandemic in or closures any fictions Is Worse than it was in the late nineteen sixties. So some of these things we were still wrestling with they seem twins dental, but they're not incidental at all. But again, it's this proximity you know that gives me hope and hope that even outside of crisis, we can expand and strengthen these relationships crises great reasons to get together but it's the more sustainable relationships happened over time outside of the crisis built on shared values and shared interests. So once again, this Jewish unity week has the potential to to be a real game changer. Well, so talk A. Little bit more about that. What do you hope is going to come out of this week if you believe that the basis of a better relationships and greater understanding comes from exposure than my hope is that we can use this week to focus on our rich history on our shared cultural values and to help understand things that we may not understand about each other but to be able to come together in a safe place and talk about those things, this has been tried in lots of different ways you know with lots of different impetus over the years. But in this country, as you know until you can make a sort of a holiday of it until hallmark starts to sell. It really difficult to have something that is stained and that you can go back to know every year. and. So that's the thing that excites me the most I know how excited I was to leave the south. And to meet people of different faiths including the Jewish faith and and get to know them get to count them among in my close friends. I would like that for everyone and so that when issues come up in our communities as we saw in Brooklyn I think earlier this year there was a really terrible assault in Brooklyn by a woman African American woman and if we had a built in long standing. Unbreakable trust between our communities. We can weather the storms we can come together and mutual condemnation, mutual understanding and mutual healing. It's not enough just to condemn something, but it's more important. I think to learn from it and make sure that it doesn't happen doesn't happen again and then five years hence, we can be sending each other black Jewish unity. We cards produced by hallmark absolutely creating whole new language in a around. It, it could be it could be urban slang and Yiddish expressions that. Unless you're in the know you don't you don't know. I'm hopeful hallmark if you're listening. Might be onto something big year. We'll see we'll see what's things we can pull their. I want to close by asking you for a few tips for our listeners actually the few months ago we had an amazing friend of AJC on the podcast named Eric. Ward. The Executive Director of the Western states center. We were talking about racism and I asked him what he thought as a professional opponent of racism and as a black man, what he thought American Jews should be doing to fight racism. His answer was pretty surprising to me actually because he said the best way for us to fight racism was to fight antisemitism since in his work he's bound that white supremacist racism is always based on a foundation of Antisemitism. So I I'm just interested in your reaction to that I, I think I'm citing him basically correctly I'm interested in your assessment of. That and second I want to give you a chance to answer the question from square one. Also, you know what would you like to see Clinton? What would you like to see American Jews doing proactively now to be effective allies in the fight against racism and I WANNA go back to Eric's point. Let me see if I can make this one I. I've only recently come to understand the difference between anti-racism. An anti-discrimination has a lawyer I've grown up understanding that if you want to fix racism, you have to attack it as a matter of non-discrimination don't discriminate against people in hiring don't discriminate against kids in school, and sometimes that anti-discrimination is in the form of color blindness. So whatever the remedy is, it can't be race specific right because the constitution doesn't allow such a thing but let's let's just come up with big broad sweeping solutions that african-americans might incidentally benefit from. You know by virtue of maybe being lower middle income people, we're going to come up with solutions that will work for everybody including African Americans. I've now come to understand that that's just not cutting. It goes great disparities that you talk about the at the beginning their persistent for a reason it's like trying to perform surgery with your eyes close, but you may be able to route around and feel where the patient is but your ability to be precise with a scalpel. And and fix the problem identified at problems impossible. If you don't open your eyes that has been the character of how we approach race in this country for decades. I've now come to understand and have really been encouraging others to join me in. This is becoming an anti-racist. It saying I may not have owned slaves I may have never committed an act of racism or discrimination. Even if that's true. You have to personally get involved to fix these problems. It's not enough to say, well, you know we have laws to address those issues. Laws had been very inexact and very unhelpful. In many ways you've got to get in there, roll up your sleeves and say, okay, is lack of capital in the black community a problem I need to figure out how to get more capital into black communities are educational disparities problem. Okay. I need to figure out how do we improve schools whether it's funding whether it's through pedagogy whatever we need to do, but we need to come up with solutions that actually help. Like people. And not just. Continue to perpetuate these gaps in Hustle meeting well in educational opportunities and health and civic engagement. That's my biggest message to the community, the An anti races. Just. As you know, we should all be fighting against anti-semitism. It's not enough to turn your back and say, well, you know they're not talking about, knee they are talking about you. And it's when we get to the point where those protests and in the halls of Congress where we're trying to make change we see people who look like you see people who would like me and seek people or Asian and and people who are all different walks of life saying we are here because we care and black lives matter and we've got to change the way this country works. I want to dive in and ask a million more questions and and talk so much more about where you just this conversation we are unfortunately out of time. So I hope that this will be an effective way to wet our listeners appetites for the week ahead, I should just add that in addition to his impressive titles at the National Urban. League clint wears another half. It's one of my favorite. Hats it's the hat organizational podcast host and Clinton is one of the hosts of for the movement the National Urban League podcast which people should check out and especially check out for this next episode where my colleague Dan Elbaum will be a guest on the show. We will link to the podcast in our show notes, Clinton let me just say once more. Thank you so much for joining us this week. She said thank you for letting me be here.

As Burning Man Goes Virtual, Organizers Try To Capture The Communal Aspect
"Is an experience. Yes, 70,000 people gathered for whimsical art and music in the Nevada desert, but also body paint and bartering and communal living. It is not the kind of thing that's easy to recreate virtually, but the pandemic has forced organizers to try. NPR's Elizabeth Blair has a story. At burning man. Thousands of volunteers usually work together to help artists build enormous sculptures out of glass, metal wood, the chaos and creativity of building the festival's temple in 2018 was captured in a recent documentary. Go Climbers Go! Go! This one knows Good Burning Man Temple is typically a place spacious enough for people to walk into and reflect or grieve. This year. You can sort of do that with a mobile device desktop or virtual reality headset in alive, Webinar burning man. Associate director Katie Hazard invited viewers to imagine they were entering the temple. It will walk forward metaphorically together, all of us here on the col and see this picture this gate in front of you. And together, let's all move through that gate together. Burners are true believers in participation in this year's theme is multi verse. Different teams have created to D and three D virtual experiences. Turn on your webcam and you can attend an art class or join a virtual group hug or go to a party. Welcome, everybody. And thank you so much for coming along. Talk of us. Ed Cook and a team created the sparkle verse, he says. To recreate the desert experience. People have set up tents in their living rooms and dressed up in costumes. Radical self expression is one of burning man's 10 principals getting up and dancing from your screen, bothering to put on a costume jumping around these things extraordinarily powerful for kind of taking into new realms of experience, Cook admits online. He doesn't experience the sense of Ah, he gets in the desert, but he's convinced you can create the kind of joyful communal experience he's had there. Other burners are having none of it. It's not the same thing. Douglas Wolk has been going to burning man for 20 years, he says. He keeps going back because of the principles like no advertising and being off the grid. What's so special about burning man for me? Is that It's really immediate, and it's not like anything else. All kinds of people come and meet up there in this bizarre difficulty, sometimes frustrating environment and they're pretty much all there to help each other. It's really not the same thing to be sitting in front of your computer. I think the multiverse is a very interesting experiment. Artist Jennifer Lewin has mixed feelings about this year's virtual festival. Burning man is where she goes to test the limits of her work enormous interactive public sculptures that need to survive all kinds of weather. And lots of people playing on them. The sculpture can survive at burning man. It can survive everywhere. Computer drawings of her work cosmos are in one of the multiverse is the culmination of the festival is the burning of the giant sculpture of the burning man. This year. They're streaming videos of people doing burns in their backyards or even just lighting candles. Elizabeth Blair NPR news
"temple" Discussed on Blue Lotus Buddhist Temple Podcast
"When you meditate. Keep digging the road. How this pain and suffering creating your mind. So let's go to the another side of that. When you have! Eagle. You know you are believing self. Somebody. Come to you and said Oh my God. Your hair style is so beautiful. How do you view? Happy Right. How do you feel so heavy? Then other the same person. All my God, you are terrible person. How do you feel? Unhappy and mad. So that now all is because of that what you are. You are believing about yourself. In problems in your mind. Now during this pandemic all the MOMS we are here. This I'm hall manual. You know in our community. Everybody knows me. So some people really getting always good hair. You know you have hair now you have bid. Some people, really enjoying it, and you know making really good. I said thank you. Some people. Somebody made the come in on the FACEBOOK I. Hope Not only pandemic in the United States. They don't have raises. Mean Right. And so. I really. See that I started laugh. Why love! If. Why not mindful I can be angry. Differently, I can make another comment. Then I realized that's not my problem. Anyway. That's how other people see it. then. Some people are just can new. Cut the hair. That's not nice. Look all now. We don't see your smile because of the beard and. It doesn't matter. Now yesterday I feel I'm tired of this hair now. I. Know people all you car it. Whether I have here or not or car or not, still the house something to complain. then. I realize when I want to grow my hair. I just grow it. When I won't read. I will carry it. He other people happy about it. That's not my problem. They're unhappy about it. That's not my. Let them suffer I. Mean during my life. So that's how I won't will how how I'm asking you in your life. So? Lots of coming so therefore. Use this ego only for survival purpose. That's the only purpose of the EGO or self or So now, think about the day you born. You didn't have problems. I was thinking other. Right after that I'll payers are planning and thinking and they go into college or whatever? They gave us a name. Your Bob. You are put. You are Megan. So now think of it out right after you get the name what happened. Or the problem came right after that name. So therefore, I'm asking. Even you have a name. Can you become a nameless. Why you need the name, if all all the girls here in this area now you know the sitting if all Megan. What will happen? We are so confused. Then, we have to save Megan one mega mega three, still really hard to differentiate. So why are we are giving names? For our convenience. Make sense for our convenience other than that. There's no no meaning. So. We got the Blue Lotus in Woodstock. Why because the Blue Lotus temple in Woodstock because we have. Temple Pauline Pennsylvania have Blue Lotus Temple in Las Vegas. We had to define it. We had to so that is the only you know the purpose. We are giving names. Now win when you have this identity when you are, attach into it. You're using that name so many years was happen. You believe believing it. You attach injury. I think all the problems. All the unhappiness will come to you because of that. Therefore now these days I'm always thinking. I don't give. My life power to somebody else. Don't give your life power to other people. So. You can keep the Paula. That means you can. Manage. This is a good word, not controlling. You can manage yourself. Now how you are leaving your life now. How you're living your life now. Hey Gordon to. Others expectations actually here in this country is less. They care but same they don't care. The. That's what I said the care, but seemed i. don't care what other people think. But the eastern countries crazy. The way we dress, we hairstyle. Or this problem. You know. The monks has to be certain ways. Who made these things? Our minds create those stories. We got the puncher. Mental Stories. Because of the act creating those mental stories. Then you have believing it then you attached into it. So therefore, no need to attach ideas, conserved or self. What would the said? What is the self means. Nothing. But the said he sees. Ego is believing something not exist. Make sense to everybody. What is the Eagle means believing something not exist. Now think about on Ian. You're appealing onion. Now you go, there's Armenian now you are you know each skin you have feeling off? After you do like a ten minutes. What would happen? Do you see these onion. One. After all day layers put together then we call it. Onion, so, what happened now? You made the name humid identity. You are believing it. You put layers. Leaving means what we are doing. Keep putting all the layers. Into, your Pain and suffering box. When are meditating what we are doing? We are key peeling off. Layer by layer. Then, we become free. Then there is. No Happiness No unhappiness. You are still. You joyful the good word you are so balanced. That's the would. You are practicing equanimity. Nor hurt. One man said you are the most unkind monk ever met. Why whatever he asked I didn't do. I don't do whatever people all the time I right to say no..

"Okay. I hope you all had the good meditation practice. If I, ask a question. When you do your meditation I, Know Your purpose. Maybe how different words! The simple words. Everybody will say. I won't be happy. It would worry agree with that MINU. do meditation you won't be happy. Yes. So, no, my rations ungracious. Now you're doing meditation. Are you happy? You can as a sometime years sometime not. If you're a happy. Sometimes, it is okay. Sometime you are unhappy. Reduce Okay too. So after. Many years of your practice or many months of your practice. Every day. When you live your life. All is your mind going back and forth. Still the same thing happening in your mind. Maybe! Meditation is not working. So sometime you are not you know. Some people are not meditating at all. Some people come to say today. I'm very happy. Then next this person called me and said today I'm unhappy. Then I was thinking people who are practicing meditation. They're the same expedience. And the person who doesn't have any idea about the meditation, they're the same expedience. So that, what is the difference? So regular people know about the meditation, no idea about the practice, no idea about the mindfulness sometime they are heavy. Sometimes, they aren't happy. So people who are practicing meditation. Sometimes they are happy. Sometimes, they aren't heavy. So then I was thinking. What is the difference? There's no difference. Why Right exactly so then my question for you. How do you understand this? So Vineyard two things. How mine is always going back and forth those things. This way to be happy. I think you had to give up those boats. How you're going to do that. Can you give up happiness? Can you, unhappiness. If. You can do and learn how to do that. Then be! You are not happy. Then what is happening to after that. Why you know you lost both woods now you give up both woods. You are not happy. You're not on heavy. What would we can use after that? Content yeah we are content. So? If you're truly media practice with your mindfulness if you are content. Then you don't have that. You know upend down problem. Make sense everybody. So what I'm asking you today. So just coming to mediation, sit down in meditation and doing then you happy. Then you are driving home. Somebody you honking. Then, you're chasing that person.

"Good Morning Siwa Friday. Very rainy outside here. Kind of Thundery, light. Thunder but a lot of Noah lot of. A lot of funder I don't see much lightning. so hope your superior. You're having either needed. Rain or You're feeling cozy like it's a day, you can spend inside and you. You're appreciating that you're you're. You may be totally different weather so a different situation altogether. It feels it feels a little bit nicest morning just because. I woke up to a head. Just enough time to feed my squirrels and chipmunks and birds outside came back in and. Before I knew it. It was raining, so it doesn't seem to bother them at all. Oh, that's good. So. Let's start out the day. With our my wish. Let's do that together, so we can. If you have memorized at yet, you'll be back back in the saddle with and remember this. My wish is part of the US from shanty. Daiwa an eighth century Buddhist monk in India. In. This part of heart of writing from Shanty David too too small. Extract and I think it fits beautifully for the Times. We're living in right now. It's it seems always appropriate who we think about. What we want the compassion we feel towards the world. But, this is specially now. I think it just is heightened. And when I opened a book this morning, the first thing just fell out of the book was one of the blessing cards that That I was able to put together with a committee at blue, Lotus Temple and it was originally to calf blessing carts to give to the detained immigrants at the county jail, and now we have them in French and Spanish and England English and we haven't been able to. All the cards were ready and French and Spanish lovely little packs to sell the temple to support the printing. The our committee was doing at the temple. We never got to put them up because we closed. Was Right as a pandemic started, but we have the English ones there and. They are. When I volunteered at the jail now we can't go to jail, but when we were going to the jail. the Catholics always had the beautiful blessing cards, prayer cards, and I've never been a Catholic I've been a lot of other things, but never almost, but never a Catholic and I always have the little prayer cards, and so the committee at Blue Lotus and I put together a set. With all of the seven wishes and blessed in the the. The. The blessings, the prayers for the people who need protection and our compassion. With. We made a separate card for each line of the my wish, and then we found a picture that we thought would be something. Someone could look at it in their cell, and have a feeling for that line or a feeling of the outdoors something that they were unable to to have and some color and some light in their room are there? They're bit by their bed. And they were very popular at the jails they were. We ran out of we had thousands and thousands of the cards and the English ones were picked up very quickly by volunteers, and then we printed the Spanish ones, and we had just distributed some of those and then French But they haven't. They're sitting. Most of them are in my closet and summer already packaged in the Little Organza bags that we put seven of them to match all the lines in a little package that we were wanting to sell at the temple to raise money to print more of the cards, but hid has my wish on the back of the cards has my wish, and so they're wonderful to hand out to people, and they fit purpose perfectly in the in a wallet or pocket. And our printer suggested this size because. It's a typical size for a prayer card she. Does. She said this is something. Someone can take with them everywhere. They go and we know that when the detained immigrants are. Sent back to countries. Were they either going back home where they have so much to remember? About the time that they've they've spent in detained in detainment. So many of them are sent back to countries where they might never have lived or were. They don't no longer have family. But to have something like this in their pocket or in their wallet that just gives them a can give them a sense that there are people who care. And that there is there is slight in the world, and there are people who who are trying to do the best they can do. And, so it's so wonderful to have this. Just drop drop in my lap morning. And that's the same. My wish that we're learning and reading together now every morning. So let's start with that. And then we'll talk a little bit, and we'll end the meditation this warning with the same the same I wish. May I become at all times, both now and forever a protector for those without protection, a guide for those who've lost their way. I shook for those with the notion to cross a sanctuary for those endanger. A land for those without light, a place of refuge, for those who lack shelter and a servant to all in the. By means of this meritorious deed may I never join with the unwise only the wise until the time I attain the Bonna. Beautiful. And some of US might be thinking. We didn't have to look very far during this pandemic to. To be a servant to all in need, because for many of you, you had your family's right there at home and you could see when they were needing something. Are you could see your? Friends who you were just having? A sporadic contact with, but you could see what their needs were. You could see what they were going through and You could be. You could be there for them. And hopefully that's that's how you experienced it to. That it was a wonderful time for you than it is and has been. A really powerful time for you to practice compassion. And understanding, and hopefully every day has been a challenge for your practice and one. That may be some days. You felt like you did a great job other days, not so sure. But every day you could start over again. and not carry any remorse or guilt about the day before, but every day we can start over. And remember that about everything, we're going through right now whatever you've been through. We can't drag things around with us that we aren't feeling good about or that. We Have A. Difficult emotions over, or we have anger around or sadness around. It's really important for us to get that cleared away. And that we deal with it. And then let it go, so we can start. We can start fresh. And and I see that in my own life. I had I did something if? Several weeks ago, that that in four afterthought really thought I shouldn't have done that I.

She's insane her said you won't admit it that's why you won't put her in an institution but you statia refused to send her away instead. You stay hired a speech therapist.

The grand in house had become a playground. She and her friends played table. Hockey and temples room. The also made a plays designed costumes and went on spy missions. More than anything. Though temple love to create things. She drew horses running through the fields. She made kites shaped like birds and jellyfish. She built forts in the woods with her friends in fourth grade. Her history teacher asked each student to make a stone age to without any modern day. Materials Temple hunted for the perfect stone and attempted to tie it to a stick using a blade of grass. The stone fell off his stick but temple wasn't upset trying to figure out again and again. How a tool like that worked filled her with joy one day in sixth grade. Her classmates were talking about what they wanted to be. When they grew up temple thought for a moment she saw all the inventors she'd read about in books. Elias the inventor of the sewing machine and Robert Fulton the inventor of the steamship. She saw their faces and their inventions and then she saw herself. I think it would be fun to be an inventor. Temple said temples classmates in elementary school. Were like family. All that changed. When she went to junior high there were a lot more students at our new school.

Saw Horses in the snow covered fields. Do you see the horses. Temple said excitedly. Yes honey you stay. She said Hampshire country. School was a boarding school made for children like temple. It was a place where different ways of thinking were valued. The school was surrounded by seventeen hundred acres of woods and there was a stable full of horses like the One temple had seen her science teacher. Mr Karl Lauck used to work for NASA. He asked them to solve problems and create all kinds of things from rockets to an optical illusion room most importantly. No one made fun of temple even though she talked loudly and had short hair now a teenager though temples body was changing and she didn't like it. Her brain was in overdrive. Working with the horses seemed to help temple so in temples junior year you statia came up with an idea. I've talked with your aunt and Arizona's she said and she wants you to spend the summer with her on their cattle ranch. Pictures flashed through temples. Mind heat rising in waves a bright orange sun the desert. She grimaced no but with her. Mom's encouragement temple went anyway. The plane ride was noisy. When temple arrived in Tucson it felt as hot as an oven but up in the mountains where the ranch was it was a lot. Cooler Temple started working right away building and repairing things. She loved spending time with the cattle. Sometimes she'd go lie down in the pasture and they'd come up to sniff and nosal heard she realized they were curious but also sometimes fearful just like her sudden changes surprise them a glint of light or a loud noise. They weren't expecting but when she was lying quietly on the soft grass. They were peaceful and gentle. She was also drawn to the cattle. Shoot a big contraption that held cavs still while they were vaccinated temple saw that the cavs were nervous when going into the chute but when the sides of the machine pressed against them they calmed down. This is like Magic Temple thought. She asked her aunt. Anne is she could try. The shoot herself temple climbed in on her hands and knees and when and pulled the rope. The gate closed gently around temples. Neck and the wooden sides of the shoot pressed against temples body at first temple felt a little panicky but then she felt piece temple had often wanted to be held but when she was she felt an overwhelming tidal. Wave of sensation then made hugs unbearable. Is this what hugs feel like? Most people temple wondered.

"This time. I got to catch up with Robert deleo Eric. Kretz the bassist and drummer from Stone Temple pilots. We talked about their latest album for Dita mostly acoustic collection. That's both a continuation of their music. In something of a departure we also talked about the painful loss of two of their lead singer. Scott Weiland and Chester Bennington and how the band found a way forward. We got into the connection between the Stone Temple pilots and the carpenters which I guess wasn't a complete surprise for me but when way way deeper than I would imagined I spoke with Robert and Eric on a rainy Tuesday in early March. It was rainy in New York. Not La where they were but it's definitely a day. I remember clearly because for one thing it's the last time I was on the subway in New York by the next day. Like a lot of you. I had started working from home where I'm recording this introduction these strange times and is just about every other email you get tends to put. I hope this finds you well. It's a time when everything seems to be up in the air. And that goes double. If you were touring musician. When I spoke with Robert Eric they were just about to start a tour of Australia. Alongside some nineties Rock Radio. Eros Bush and live but things were just beginning to shut down at that point and so those tour dates had to be rescheduled for next year while Stone Temple pilots. Hope that their plans to tour the US this summer going to hold. It's hard to say what the future will bring. Most musicians. Make their living on the road. So most musicians are in a really difficult spot right now. I'm sure a lot of you guys are too and this is a time when we really need to take care of each other. Which means being careful saying healthy washing your hands like you're so Pez the winning ticket of a scratch off lottery hidden inside it but it also means that if you're a music fan and you can swing it maybe think about supporting the music you love however you can me personally. My Band t shirts supply has been growing very steadily. Okay so that's my public service announcement. Let's get back to stone temple pilots and when they first emerged in nineteen ninety and songs like plush in creep began to dominate the radio. The band was dismissed. Grunge copycats by the sort of rock purists who also initially dismissed Pearl Jam as a major label Nirvana clone. I mean in one thousand nine hundred one. I knew a guy who was absolutely obsessed with proving that Pearl. Jam had been assembled boy band style by its label and he was going to get to the bottom of the whole thing. Which of course was not true. But here's the funny part. I I was never really on the Pro Navonna Anti Proton Bandwagon. But you know who was Robert deleo from Stone Temple pilots who once told rolling stone that until he saw Pearl Jam play on Lollapalooza Nineteen ninety-two. He thought of them as fakes. Look if you didn't live through the grunge war is a must seem really confusing now but the the basic point is that nothing was real enough in pro. Jam was real enough because they hadn't started on an Indie label. Nirvana even Rana wasn't real enough. Because they hadn't stayed on Indie label. It didn't matter that some of these bands loved the same sort of music or hit started from the same sort of place. I mean Robert Deleo and Scott Weiland met in Los Angeles in nineteen eighty five after a Gig by punk rock pioneers black flag but back in the grunge worries nothing past the authenticity test side. Note here when Robert wrote plush in nineteen eighty nine and he I played it for Weiland. Wild dismissed it as sounding too much like Boston as side. Note to the side noticed that Kurt cobain used to say that smells like Teen Spirit. Was Him trying to sound like Boston? So you see what I mean about some of this stuff starting from the same place..

"Good Morning Good morning at central time. This is speak when he we mullah from Blue Lotus Temple in Woodstock Illinois. And I'm here to ask you to join me to do another. Meditation will spend about thirty minutes together. If you can remember these are recorded too so you can. You can bought US listen to them any time. That's good for you today. I'd really like us to think about our breathing. That something that until recently until the time of this virus we probably haven't had to think about very much and now we're recognizing Not only the importance of it but Everything that we're doing all over the world to help keep people breathing whom we think about her day to day. Lives were often so busy in so consumed with everything consumed and consuming everything around us that We use expressions. Like I didn't have a minute to breathe or I'll sit down and breathe later when I have time or we're always breathing so let's work today together on just being able to relax and stay with our breath and really exploring our body that way and sometimes if we can stay with our breath. We're actually going to be letting more rice up for us to look at to see so it can be emotional especially these days. Sometimes a four tight with our breath. We're not breathing deeply and calmly wherein stand pushing things away so if we can really be with our breath be still and the calm and stay with our breath. Lots of things may rise up so if don't be surprised or uncomfortable if something painful or sad rices up. That's that's that's not bad and we can handle it. It's in our body somewhere so let's be more aware of what's this. What's here just this morning? I heard about the death of the mother of two dear friends of mine and And I know how difficult it is for them right now and I think when we feel in this experience where all going through around the world were feeling things for all living beings everyone were connected to and our connections with every other living being or becoming more and more real to us every day. There's no separation so there will be sadness and there will be pain and there will be suffering and the best thing we can do when we're in the midst of that is to sit with our breath and let our hearts open up. So let's do that now so gently. Close Your eyes and if you can breath in and out through your nose.

"Hi I'm we beacon. I'm typically the monastic at blue. Lotus Temple Would Stop Stock Illinois. But because we're keeping our distance he stays. I met home and Not In any of the recordings at the temple. But I wanted to be able to share with you to do something that might be of help and support for people so I wanted to help with the meditation and just begin with a basic meditation. Practice that you can do whether you're a Buddhist or not It's this is a universal practice and in these days we need everything we can get. We need all the tools we can have to maintain our own stability and tranquility where all dealing with fear and worry anxiety as each day goes on there more people that we begin to think about who we know who may be affected by this virus and I think if we if we don't acknowledge those concerns we have inside. They only get worse. They don't they? Don't go away when we try to just ignore them or press them down so in trying to relax or to sleep better or to just Be More fully present in that than the now and not worrying about the future of the past. I think meditation is a wonderful tool to have so luscious began. Wants you to close your eyes if you're comfortable with that. I don't think you'll miss anything. If you're not watching me talk. Close Your eyes now. Let all of your focus for a minute or two beyond finding a comfortable posture. You want to be seated comfortably so you can be on your back on the floor with your knees raised. Maybe a pillow under your knees or under your neck are you can be in a comfortable chair but make sure it's not too soft or mushy his. It'll be hard for you to keep your good posture or you can be Sitting on a cushion on the floor with your legs crossed whatever's comfortable for you and allow yourself as much time as you need to find a posture that you can stay in. He may need to stretch to realign yourself. But YOU WANNA be able to stay still as as much as you can while we're practicing so be comfortable if you're not comfortable your mind won't allow you to meditate and get the benefits from it so when you have that posture with your back as straight as you're backfield's comfortable being and you feel the two spine aligned the tha comfortable through the hip area. However you're seated your hands can be just resting in your lap. You can have palms down on. The top of your legs are palms up. Close Your eyes and just begin to be aware of your breathing. Let's start with more breathing practice than we typically do at the beginning of meditation but during the stressful days I know for all of us were carrying more stress. Even that we're not aware of. We may do a pretty good job of not showing it or not having it manifest in different ways. But we know it's there the more the more we are aware of ourselves the more we know it's there so let's just sprays take a really deep long breath all the way down to your belly breathing in through your nose if you can and then when you release that breath go back down all the way down into your belly. I just do a few cycles of this deeper breathing.

Sanger sanger our noble friends community because we all are like minded people so few weeks ago. I think maybe month ago before I travel actually more than a month ago. I was Doing clause medidation glossy evening glass in a health. Food store interesting place so then I love those stores. Good stuff and so anyway. I had the forty five minute break. You know before the class so then people customers still coming in and buying things and people come into the meditation and sit down and I was keep walking around the stole and you know looking and taking all the little items and so then I realize he a in this country. We have lots of alternatives. Lots of options. So then I was thinking I can buy most of good stuff from there but I was keep looking for appeal or medicine or you know whatever alternate you will find happiness or joy. Your mindfulness you know. There is an appeal there for that. You know there is no what you know the Pill for enlightment and so but other than that everything there is nothing about when you go to the grocery store you lots of stuff. Now I know you have some money in your pocket. You you have your credit card so if you want to buy something you can go dry through and you can buy it on the way home. Did you see anything By through at the blowed temple outside dry through and go by dry through you know by something in we cannot. There is a church. I heard in central Pennsylvania so one student all me. There's a church in central Pennsylvania. It is a dry through church. I was thinking I don't believe it. Then he said if you don't believe it I will take you. I said No. I'm going to believe you now so then I asked him. How do you think that worked in the church work? And then he said people don't have time to go to church and in this on the Sunday morning a they need something easy and simple and quick and instant and they go right through in a joint bank so then they have three buttons push one number one is ten bucks to in the box or whatever number then put the credit card or cash or whatever way you won't pay then they can hear Then buck sermon any bucks and then I pray and that little box and maybe then them so how wonderful life is so easy even drive through church then I was laughing although you gave me a perfect business idea what I'm GonNa do. I go back to Illinois. I started this Temple Temple. I'm going to do dry through mindfulness. Everybody can get very little. How EASY IF WE HAVE? I think if you do then maybe American people love it because everything is very easy and simple but now I can see lots of all tornadoes and people looking for but same time. I can see when people come to the temple and also many people. I'm traveling all the time. All these people they are listened always people looking for something deeper. When I'm asking this question. People doing lots of complaints about life more than good moments. They're complaining more including myself. We are complaining more about life that means I can see less happiness. More unhappiness less happiness more unhappiness more unhappiness people have less happiness. People have so the now whatever people did to achieve happiness didn't work so far. What are the things you need to be happy? Give me a list. What other activities? You did to make life happy. Okay go vacation wonderful. What else. Okay Oh my God. You Ain't trouble. What is her by things? Okay what else. Okay with friends okay. Okay okay by things you know when you buy things you feel happy then only happiness you had when you are buying things no you had unhappiness to nitpicks venue or is happy. There's something something moment when you're watching certain things you feel unhappy right then friends going with friends. Happy okay good. There's no unhappiness with your friends right. Okay so how about relationship you? You'll get in relationship to be a happy life. Yes I think. Now people come to me and said you know how about Eurasian. Oh my God I made the mistake. People always complain about the relationship How about children don't feel in. Don't think I'm negative. I'm not negative. How about having children? You did the purpose driven heavy but now thinking about when I'm talking to parents especially mothers all is there were in everyday life. You bring things into your life as a people and things and so whatever people did the ice some kind of live happiness in there but most of the time people are not content. Eve you are planned to be happy you all in trouble. Therefore I'm asking you don't make any plans to be happy. That's not the right word. Happiness come with something always pleasurable now. Dodd said happy is eating. Cookies are really well. Because he's always around among Lao cookies but if you're keep eating the cookies definitely are going to be unhappy so that means you're looking for something pleasurable so then always pleasurable like and this lake. I'm asking duty. We all have to look for what containment. We all have to look for containment. So what you did to make your life heavy. So far didn't work now people think. Then there's something else then. There is a problem. Whatever I did didn't work now I want to find the answer so then looking for and then you go to the health food store. That's why we have so many options. Then you're thinking of the health food store and all the wiedeman shops and all those places you go into work. Maybe then go.

"Meditation for the Temple of Voices the temple of Voices is smaller than the other halls on the other side yet. It's probably has the greatest greatest acoustics of the mall. The building is perfectly round romanesque in design and all gold. The columns are gold steps are gold doors are gold and the Dome is gold in fact no other temple over. There is totally totally gold like this one yet. It seems to be going with a tremendous iridescent almost fuchsia Allard light. The guide says the temple of voices attract souls like a magnet because the tones and the quality music or so magnificent here you can hear the Cherub beam in the Seraphim or you can listen to a people from this life who've had beautiful pitiful voices example would be the Mormon Tabernacle choir or other lovely harmonious voices.

"temple" Discussed on Gaming and BS RPG Podcast
"Have <unk> in one pages most of for free which only take an hour to two run it would be pretty easy but that's weird to play with that session zero shadow on his numerous missions and tons it breaches on vehicles amounts pathfinder doesn't okay job in mounted combat. They created the cavalier class and rewrote some rules so they're at least functional offense probably the best modern combat system. I can think of one of the least played classes you see them. In pathfinder society also mounted combat for archers for excuse me for archer rangers pretty overpowered as you could could move and still full attack a good lord well the many reasons. You probably don't use <unk>. Slash amount combat is the rules are always wonky. Don't have yet to see a system. Make run well. I i've seen okay rule seven drills in pathfinder a fan but they're still clunky if you can think unaccepted love to see them henry through them because i really can't think of any i would love to read some from my own system. I'm working on association chairman. Yes good so i think if you get a system and it doesn't really matter matt what system it is if that chases coincide with the overall mechanics of the game aim saw elaborate if you as a player character in order to accomplish something it's very i roll dice compared at any skill bonus and you have a target number and if it succeeds great and if you don't if if you don't hit the target number you don't if you have a system that's like that and it coincides and crosses over into a chase then i think it's a system that probably is less last wonky right so it same with star wars fantasy fight games. You have a ship. You have the skill you roll the dice. You have narrate right out the outcome based on the <unk> about a system that utilizes the core mechanics doesn't build a mini game within the game. That would be exactly what i'm saying because i think that's when things get really walkies because you're stopping and having to do a different mini game within your game. We talked about this when we chat about grappling awhile back yeah yeah yeah j. and chases too yeah and i don't know if it crosses over very well necessarily but at least then you're not like earth. Stop app break out. These pages of the book read them. Oh figure this out figure that out resolve continue sir her. That's all i'll say fair fair for now. Some systems do pretty good job with chases incorporate some combat but as us but soon as you move into combat vehicles without chase it breaks down again kind of never ran. Slash plates are finding. They seem to have some decent roof for keeping everyone engaged in starship combat on terrain at shipton legos as a kid. I started gaming. Twelve alvin made use of them. I had the cool pirate ships which were once which were nice ship to ship combat castles. We've been at lagos instead of minis pretty sure the rules weren't followed that closely it sure was fun unfortunately got rid of them in my late teens early twenties which i still had them because like to try them again i mean <hes> from local gaming stores a war hammer store so have used their train little for pathfinder society but for the most part avenues terrain and fifteen years or so. I say like the idea of trained but don't see myself using using it now i i haven't they tend to crafting always roll a disadvantage. Oh jesus that's batman second employee second. I am pretty frugal bruegel and the arts something. I could use a lot. I rarely run the same type of setting about to circle back to fantasy and it's been a little over five years. It would send me to spend that money for for a <hes> for one use. Every five years plus storage space has so many board games and r._p._g.'s that it's already had to find space for and i still have like three kickstarter kickstarter coming in. I know you feel breau ev- as someone who loved to make it though i'd use it more tactical games her the grid map works. Just fine is much much faster unless as you said you had <hes> pieces to do the entire dungeon also have been running more zone based games which really don't benefit nearly as much from train games like pathfinder side roads and forty though really do benefit a lot in my opinion a love vision blocking a map tool so people couldn't even see around the corner having one guy around around that corner and go. Oh shit is always a fun moment this guy as some good ways to make dungeons on the cheap. If you want to link we've got a youtube link there from <hes> our buddy here so thank you very much coach and he hinted today temple mental evil about the p._c. Game twice two different versions headed for over twenty years at least five computers in that time have been able to get to run any of them so it is in fact unplayable all that's not quite what i meant but okay good good good good nice stuff man. Oh goodness all right. Thank you matt. Thanks matt blake of house. Ryan on temple of elemental evil good i my first game as a player was in the temple temple of elemental evil for those who don't know the temple of elemental evil was a first <hes> through tenth mega dungeon module and i eighty set in the lands lanza grayhawk thought it was one through nine blake just saying checking checking kaeding there are more are there are over four hundred rooms. It is a mega engine years later iran temple of elemental evil with the group <hes> in the group took the throne down into level four and died insert new group to rescue their friends slash cousins there are chances to set the factions against each other and some neat elemental planer exploration one minute like is there is there's a chance to rescue a noble which means you would normally escort them out which gives the dungeon inhabitants a chance to regroup my tip to gm's to have them a followed the activities the dungeon forces should not be confined to the dungeon for iran and again. I would have more chances for a fight escalation. Due to the close proximity of the many of the rooms of many of the rooms black hawk down eat your heart out only criticism of the modules seems seems like they did not have a clear idea of the ongoing bad guy doug mccoy. The fungus demon is one of the big bads but there's no mention one of her. In the house of the i two hundred rooms of the dungeon likewise there is a loaf cultist in the house and then one room to a loaf cultist don level three since there are dozens of rooms dedicated to the competing elemental factions in temple think they should have had a stronger subplot with just one big bad instead of having i was loath and ziga doug mckelway kinda involved keep the zips apps rolling velez blight ryan good stuff so debut white on vehicles. I'm continuing my b._s. Binge on into the show's listen to perfectly timed seemed to have taken a dig shawn's accent email last week low behold let plug in an episode. One three six were sean does his accent for the whole show sean. If my wife and i rolled into your motel in the backwoods wisconsin you greet here with that voice. She'd be back in the car in a heartbeat twenty meal. Let's just say intrigued league by what you may have served for breakfast you guys last show. One vehicles was great my vehicle gamer story. If you give me time my god sums new the hobby and it started bringing dandy andy from his dad and some old friends that play back in highschool by half year ago. This player wanted to have some wagon builder as a background for his lizard man fight. I tour rather than stating his way and she starting his wagon mechanically. I grabbed the driver. Playbook from apocalypse world used vehicle traits to give the cartoon personality the traits tracy latched onto were off road handcrafted spikes and plates and raggedy <hes> in the end he got a cart meat from huge bones curve cover the horns in hyde pulled by three chat lizards that start and go as lizards do the bone wagon has become a huge part of the story is the players go in and out of the wastelands. I keep pulling elements from it into the recession when they camp on route looks like remains a huge beast from a distance. The knowles tend to give it a pass if they do get jumped they fight from a defensive position. When someone misses a rolls low short rest hit points is because jerky y ride of the wagon and one combat a lizard the big one with the most points got a name because <unk> it got its name. It became highlight when we decided they should be able to fight back. <hes> should something get in range. It scored a decapitated while the knowles in one shot awesome times. Uh-huh shortly vehicle has been a great addition to the party in story. Playing five years presented some challenges for music d._m. Nomadic players spoke astor's so it felt like hit points are the only resource i could a dig into the players squirm with wagon is another doubt play with its open up another part of the game need to bring that thing in pack dilute and hide out in they protect it anyway all the best. Thanks for your hard work debut white very cool. I like that idea like did the big old lizard lizard wagon levy and <hes> so your wife doesn't like my accent on okay. Nobody does shawn.
