How I Wrote My Book 'HTML and CSS: Visual QuickStart Guide 9th Edition' with Joe Casabona
"I was honored to write for for peach pit because all of the books i bought That taught me web development. Where peach pit books So i was like in the ranks of people. Dan cedar home Which is amazing so Anyway i reached out to them to see if they'd like to do a second edition of responsive design with wordpress but they told me the book was going out of print apparently People don't buy that many wordpress development books i guess they looked to other online resources for that. But my editor my publisher. They offered me an alternative to rewrite from. Scratch the ninth edition of each tim allen. Css visual quickstart guide And i was really excited about this in. Html and css book has a much broader appeal to than than a advanced wordpress development book plus for a while i taught html and css at the university of scranton. And i used a book. But i thought man. I could update This classic textbook right. it's a popular. I mean a book doesn't get to nine editions without being popular right So i could update this popular classic textbook to fit today's students and one of the reasons my editor wanted to go with me or thought about me was i also make online courses. And now they're they're quickstart guides and and some of their other books come with a video section right away edition and videos for the course so i could tackle more interesting contests concepts and do more of a show and tell that might be easier than you know going in describing a a big long process with words so i agreed and then we had to get into a couple of things before i could actually start writing. The first is for many publishing companies or for many content creation companies really The original author is generally offered first right of refusal. So that means in order for me to rewrite this same title from scratch They would have to go to the previous author and get their approval or their refusal really so they had to offer the previous author the the opportunity to rewrite the book straight because a couple of things are happening here first of all. If i wasn't writing it from scratch the way the royalties are setup. Is i would essentially split royalties with the original author if i was just working off his or her work. If i'm writing it from scratch that means now that the author is forfeiting any any royalties for for later editions. If people still buy the eighth edition he or she gets royalties. But the ninth edition. They don't get royalties because again. I started it from scratch and the previous author did not want to do the ninth edition. So we we proceeded from there. I had to do a proposal at that point Because i was working off of an eighth edition. I had a general idea of what i was going to be writing but it. But you know my my editorial team kind of said you know making your own But i had to justify reasons why was going to write this book so You know. I touched on the important parts like the huge changes that have happened since twenty twelve in the in the web development space in both html ncis s in the browser space There's been a big focus again on performance on Accessibility and things like that. And i wanted to touch on those things in the book as well so There was a lot to cover. I also look at the competition now. The main competition and the book that i taught from when i was teaching at the university of scranton was actually html nc s by john. Duck it. i think. That's a really nice visual book It's definitely what. I what. I've come to learn a in writing. My book is that it's definitely more of a teacher's aide in my opinion. I think it's more of a teacher's aide than it is a. I'm a person who wants to be self taught because yes there are a lot of graphics and explains things really nice but there aren't deep explanations in it. I think. I i think in this book my book. I do some more explanation. Mostly thanks to my editor but So that was that was the first process or that was the first step right get approval from the previous author and then create a proposal and outline

Fatman: the Mel Gibson Santa action comedy
"I have to tell you something about the serial comic concept made cinema fat man which you could see on Fandango now Voodoo or Amazon Prime. This stars Mel Gibson as a gritty, tough guy named Kris Kringle. Guess who he's. In fact, Santa Claus. And in this movie, he has to team up with the U. S military when a disgruntled kid hires an assassin to kill this Not so jolly Santa Mel because the kid received the lump of coal in his stocking. I'm not kidding. I mean, I guess this kid thinks hey may see you when you're sleeping, but he may not see you. You're aiming at him with a high powered rifle like Oh, my God. So is this. This is a dark film or what is it? It's darkly comic on Lee. Not in a good way like bad Santa in a way, like why they make this had it been funnier or scarier or more heartfelt, But I was like, Wow, okay. Man that is wild that's called fat Man. A fat man.

Look at a relationship between two lesbians in Love. Who go, Tonto. The family of one of the women. And obviously, mom and dad don't know about their daughter's Proclivities. And, you know, I guess hilarity ensues, but it zoom in here or is it a good nature? Romcom ish kind of thing, Or is it home isn't a hallmark E Christmassy. What is it? Yeah, I would say, you know if you ever said to yourself, where are the corny Hallmark Channel style movies about same sex couples at Christmas? This? Well, here's your answer. Happiest season is actually made the Elsa cut above most of those films because you have good actors involved here. Kristen Stewart that's right from the Twilight franchise and a few better films plays one of the young women and Mackenzie Davis, who some people will recognize as the android heroin from the recent Terminator movie.

It's a good cast and obviously You know you're gonna have some meat, cute stuff going on and some deception and what have you, but But truly, it follows the standard formula for these movies, except it's a couple of women in love. And of course, they've got to, you know, kind of keep the secret until everything is revealed and get a basically it generates some laughs and real emotional tension and, wow, moments it.

Write it Backwards?
"One of the first pieces of advice. Any nascent author receives is right about what he or she knows. Typically the recipient of this advice looks at this council from left to right. However in this podcast. I'm going to advise you to look at it from right to left yes. This is uncommon. however when we're through you'll see the wisdom of writing your appraisal reports backwards. Sound confusing really. It's not probably. Everyone has gone to the internet specifically to youtube. They found a video on a totally silly topic. Such as how the person in the video made a million dollars in twenty four hours selling that whiskers. He scraped off his face the previous morning. The point here is the maker of that. Video was not able to produce it tape. It edited render it. Put it up on youtube at cetera until he had indeed scrape the whiskers office face and then sold them for a million dollars in other words. He made the video backwards. I he did what he was going to tell you about that. He told you about it then. He made the video thus the actions came before the video was propose here. Is that you. I do all the analyses etcetera to arrive at a credible value opinion. And then you write the report. Most appraisers start the appraisal process by opening an appraisal report form in their computer. Then they fill out certain items that do not require analysis. This includes the client's name. The property dressed the taxes last year and so forth. There is nothing wrong with this process per se. However how can the appraiser begin to write the report not merely filling in the blank since basis on the form without already knowing what the subjects values. How can the appraiser begin to write the report without already. Having done the analyses necessary to arrive at a credible value conclusion. How is it possible to summarize the appraiser support and rationale for the is and use conclusion unless the appraiser has i through the necessary analyses. How can the guy in the video share with. You is secret of making a million dollars in twenty four hours by selling day-old whiskers without having i shaved this. Of course assumes he's telling the truth if it's on the internet it has to be true right as much as most appraisers do not like the us pap document. It does provide an excellent model for the preparation of an appraisal in an appraisal report. This model is straightforward standard one age the appraiser in developing credible value conclusion standard to age the appraiser in communicating that value opinion to the client and the other intended users in other words standard. One comes before standard to therefore this is the model we should follow in concluding evaluation and reporting it to the client given how straightforward this model is. It's a puzzle as to why more appraisers don't follow it. This podcast is not the time or the place to go through a detail model of the appraisal process. That model is available elsewhere however. This is a good place to summarize those steps. So let's do it. I the appraiser mass is all of the necessary cost sales rental listing depreciation data etcetera necessary to form a credible value opinion. However this is merely step one so there is no reason to form the value opinion yet next. The appraiser analyzes the data to find out which are irrelevant which ones will aid in forming a credible value opinion. And which ones are just noise. Then the appraiser discards the irrelevant data. Usually by archiving in the work file this eliminates it from further consideration but allows it to be used in later. Appraisal reports gave it becomes relevant after eliminating irrelevant data. The appraiser is then free to analyze the relevant data. It's from these relevant data and this necessary information. The appraiser former credible value conclusion part of this process is to determine how much weight the individual approaches merit in the final value conclusion. This includes an analysis of each of the data quanta sery- in order to determine how much weight to give any given approach in other words. It's possible to have great costs. Data yet ended up giving the cost approach relatively little weight. Why if this approach is one to which the market gives relatively little weight then so should the appraiser therefore by this time the appraiser will have visited the neighborhood and subject property. She will also have determined the neighborhood's boundaries. She'll have confirmed the sales data with a party to the transaction et cetera. Finally sheila formed a credible value conclusion. What this means. Is that all of the heavier. Praise lifting is done. I all that remains now is to analyze and interpret the data and then write the report now. After all of these efforts writing the report is going to flow a lot easier because the appraiser has already answered the questions necessary to form a value conclusion writing. The report should be straightforward. Unfortunately in podcasts. Such is this one. There is not time to go into a great deal of detail. Relative to the appraisal reporting processes i am however available for private consultation in these matters the point here is it by doing the research and analysis first second step in the appraisal process writing. The report comes easier that task then becomes one of merely telling the reader. What you already know. There is a real benefit to you in changing the way you write your appraisal reports. Consider these by doing the research and analysis. I you free yourself from toggle back and forth between doing the research and writing the report by doing the research and analysis. I when you write the report you are indeed writing what you already know. This will save you from a lot of false starts and stops during the tenure of the appraisal report writing process by following this model. And because you are writing what you already know it will likely take less time to write the actual report.
Locals Line Up To Drop Off Thanksgiving Turkey At Cacia’s Bakery In South Philadelphia Despite Pandemic
"In Philadelphia may be on the shelf this year, but one tradition lives on in South Philly. People are taking their turkeys to get cooked. That conscious bakery Ky double used him. Jimenez is there this morning? Hi, Tim. Good morning. Happy Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving. Pete and people here started lining up at four o'clock this morning. At four o'clock in the morning. They were braving some really heavy downpours at some points, but it was worth it for them. For some, like Luigi Board. A. It's the first time well in an effort to bring normalcy somewhere. I knew a lot of people do this, and I thought I just might be something that's wrong. And his friend Lisa for her. This was a can't miss. And these are vintage caches. Bakery just seemed to make the turkey more juicy. And no complaints ever. So won't you do it? One year, There's kind of no going back from a I've been doing in about seven or eight years. And in a normal year, they just pretty much packed the place on Thanksgiving morning, but it has been one of the time the line is now gone. Everyone's what it was able to come in and drop off their turkeys. They have another people do have another half hour. So if they do want to come by and bring their turkeys here so far, they're serving about 65 people. S so they bring their turkeys here five hours in the brick of and they come back to get their turkeys and some of the people I talked to say this is so great Pete, of course, because he had the turkey tastes so great. But also because it frees up their oven space at home. Sure. And while you're there to make sure you grab it can only they're very, very good. Thank you Much. Alright. I'm talking with you

Frank collins got the story. Hey frank melissa. Holiday peak from black. Friday and new year's day is traditionally not really a great time for this dachshund carriers like ups and fedex despite the boom in business especially in recent years is e commerce grows for example last year both really underperforming the broader market transport's also facing the headwind of a trucker shortage the. Us will end this year with an estimated two hundred thousand fewer drivers due to the pandemic closing training schools delaying the licensing of drivers and leading many older drivers into retirement. Now that may not seem like a lot with nearly four million drivers here in the us but demand for trucking it more than double last month and major trucking companies. They have all warned about rising rates in difficulty in hiring and retaining drivers in their most recent earnings. The warner enterprises a trucker for walmart. Says it's already impacting product availability for all of us and raising the cost for retailers. Well think the driver shortage persists. It's one of the impact on inventory levels at stores and it's one of the impacts on what ultimately of drives rates and demand for delivery vans and tractor-trailers also spiking companies go to the us market for supply fedex and ups. They've been clear to us. They say that shortage is not directly. Impacting them but both companies are facing the challenge of an avalanche of less profitable residential e commerce and the impact on their margins. Unless you frank thank you. Frank colin. You would think that they'd be the most wonderful time of year for for these players. Tim but in the past we have seen shipping delays really impact stocks because the massive disappointment. If if mike didn't get that game console about an hour ago now in that happened on a widespread basis across america that could be an issue for for ups or fedex. I hope he did. Because he's he's now not only destroyed. The santa claus concept but he he better walk in the door with that thing. And if you think about what what happened to fedex and ups last year. Yeah it was a big issue and there was huge bottlenecks that they couldn't work through. I think the the the performance of those stocks though and it was really the last. The previous two holiday seasons were more a function of cyclicality the economy and where they were leading indicators. But look what we've learned from ups and fedex that they've actually mastered the essentially the beat ac- as opposed to the side which seemed to be higher margin but again what fed ex is doing on integrating ground and express and some of those synergies and actually using the entire system and doing things. We didn't think they are going to do is part of that story. I'm long fedex. I stay long transports of outperform the sap by fifteen to twenty percent since july. So for those people think it's time to take profits. I don't think we're for that yet. But i don't think i mean i think tina simply there really isn't another alternative right so clearly you might see some. Some cost pressure In the interim but i really think these companies have done a good job. This isn't a new phenomenon. Now right we've been this lockdown situation. The the advances that they've been able to made on the logistic fraud have already kind of transpired. So i know i really don't think this is much headwind. In terms of share price and again i reiterate there really isn't another alternative. This is the reason why i did. Mention names like target and walmart amazon. Etcetera that do have local distribution have kind of gotten in front of this holiday rush scenario but again. I think you've seen all these companies kind of prep for this and get ahead of the curve

John Gorman Discusses the Use of Opportunity Zones to Address Social Determinants
"Welcome to the healthcare policy podcast on the host. David. Intra Cosso. During this podcast saw discussed efforts to address social determinants of health with John Gorman chairman of the nightingale partners and founder and former Executive Chairman of Gorman Health Group. John Welcome to the program. Thanks David. Great to be here. especially with another native DC guy here most welcome John's by is, of course, posted on the podcast website. Briefly on background, the ongoing covid nineteen pandemic has exposed. The country's failed to adequately address the social determinants of health. Generally defining health access and quality education, economic circumstances, food security, social conditions, and environmental factors. It is estimated that where people live work and socialize determines as much as sixty percent of their health status. Whereas formal medical care accounts for just ten percent. For example concerning. Circumstances forty years of wage stagnation among lower income earners has left forty five percent of working age Americans. With either no health care insurance for insurance without a pocket expenses so high. They avoid sinking care went for example, they developed covid nineteen related symptoms. Healthcare policy makers have slowly begun to take an interest in addressing sto ages as a way to improve health delivery by increasing increasing appropriate utilization and reducing costs. For example, Medicare, advantage plans which enroll more than one third of all Medicare beneficiaries have recently been given regulatory authority to offer Ma benificiary supplemental benefits beyond medical care such as mail deliveries, home modifications, and Personal Care Services. With beginning, discuss, addressing, social determine, specifically use of what are termed opportunities zones. Again. John Gorman. So Jon with that as background. Louis. Begin by asking if you could provide a brief overview of nightingale. Sure David Nangle partners is one of these weird opportunities zone funds that came out of trump's big tax giveaway bill It was actually Cory Booker's program that was designed to encourage investment in real estate and disadvantaged communities and I was sitting on my ass retired last spring and got a notification that the irs had just completely revamped the rags to allow opportunities own capital to be used not just for real estate investment. But also for leases one portly for working capital or for meeting the business requirements of a new company inside one of the nine thousand roughly nine thousand opportunities zones around the country and those opportunities owns David are all. Severely, economically disadvantaged and more importantly medically underserved, and because the irs allowed now opportunities own capital to be used for working capital for meeting business requirements. That's what opened the door to allow us to use opportunities on Capitol to make large scale investments in social determinants of health intervention. So nightingale partners with insurers with health systems with large medical groups to finance design launch, and where necessary execute on our goals to improve. The quality of care for vulnerable populations. In this country, a lot of people like to say and I love it that we packed a Republican billionaire tax shelter in order to improve care for black drought people on that gets me up every morning. Sir Thank you. So this as you noted, this was a provision in the December seventeen tax bill. Specifically page one, hundred, and thirty. This was picked up this previous legislation as you noted, that as you mentioned senator from New Jersey Cory Booker but also the South Carolina African American Republican, the only one Tim Scott. So this is picked up in the tax bill previous legislation and you mentioned the nine thousand. So these are census tracts that meet this low income community criteria wrote and then explain to me. Governors than have to select a discrete number. That could benefit from this. Tax Advantage program is that correct doubts correct and there was a little bit of mischief but some of the governors in the designation of some of those areas and there's been, you know some gamesmanship with this story like you know Chris Christie, the former governor of New Jersey is. Used an opportunity zone fund open up frigging LAUNDROMAT. In Asbury, Park with Bruce, springsteen cats not the kind of stuff that we do. I'm not surprised to hear that I guess the former governor is a is obsessed with. Mr Asbury Park and again just so on. Understand better more clearly, this is the tax advantage here is that by investing the capital gains on your investment, you can avoid paying the. Twenty three percent the capital gains tax and that basically. Sure go ahead, go ahead. Well, basically, the way it works is that if you invest money or capital gains in and opportunities zone and you leave it in for at least ten years, not only is the initial investment completely tax free but then all of the proceeds that you make on that investment are completely tax free. So high net worth individuals. And family offices large corporations the generate large amounts of capital gains love this program, and indeed it opened up about six point two trillion dollars in available capital based on the amount of capital gains that we generate in our economy.

Tim, and smoke I set my erotic story back a few weeks ago I. Know You boys are being flooded with these. So this may have been passed over, but I wanted to follow up anyway and hope you see the original email in the process i. thought we read this but maybe we didn't. This was the one who got the guy who's living with the girl. She engaged in lesbianism after a break-up. Did I read that? Is that the one where there at the apartment complex?

"So would you want even asking if you've had but would you want the less popular M. F. F.? Oh Yeah I'm all for that I I'm anti another man in the situation. Yeah. You know I mean obviously if you're in a an eight summer tenths of their other gentlemen but you're not like Oh you know what? Now that there's a guy there I'm starting to think I might be interested in your you johnny you know it's just like you know. If it doesn't. It just doesn't even cross your mind. It's it's you know it's you've got a nice situation going on you don't. You know it's like having a great round of golf and you're out there shooting a hundred I don't. Know, because Pete shooting a hundred, I don't care I. don't fucking care. So. Yeah but but yeah, we talked about at one time on the radio and I don't know how we got there. But then again, I never know how we ever get on any of the topics. And I recall the REFU- people and again, it wasn't like everybody by any means most people would want to have it but there are a few people like no. I would never surprised it's that everybody would want and it's like, okay. Yeah, you're right. Why? Why should I assume everybody would want it but to me it's it's you know and it doesn't change. So I guess I. Guess what I'm saying here I am going to be forty four on Sunday. And I think if I get to eighty four, I'll probably be thinking the exact same thing. I. Don't think it will ever go away. You kind of learn these things as you. You're like I was when you're like twenty, one of forty four I won't be thinking this won't be thinking in is it turns out you do. So now I'm resigned to the fact that when I'm eighty four if I get there that that that's the that would be the thought process. It's the same thing. Now, what is within the realm of reality may be may have changed drastically, but it's the exact same thought process. So this leads to. Well. I'm going to pivot off of it because I still have all these erotic stories, and then we have this one female listener who female listener. And now take it into a different arena, but still under the umbrella of sexuality. Twice that we were locked and loaded for Q FDA. This week. This is this is this could be a four parter, it can't be, but it could be. High Tim and Gangster Pete.

"Yes! Yes, welcome into questions from the audience on the Tim mckernan show. June thirtieth two thousand twenty is when we are recording this gangster piano. Put up right away. Put it up right away because you know why we didn't do one last week. That's right. So. I. I know there are a number of people. who are tuning in today I think we've broken a record for questions There's no way that I can get to the mall and and I'll I'll do my best to answer them as much as I possibly can, so, but we didn't do one last week so last week again for the purpose of attempting to be transparent as possible and I try to be more transparent on on the Tim Kern show podcast to give people Roi for subscribing as we want you to do and giving positive reviews at possible, but then at the same time when I talk about reviews, I know there's. So many people hate me. It's like. It's going to be like you know gives them place to go attack, so maybe it's not a good thing, but either way. That's the that's the deal. When you're doing a podcast. You talk about that stuff, so I'm working on stuff. Week and a I had recorded something. And then I was asked to go into a meeting that I. was told was going to take two minutes. It's twelve thirty at this point means gangster. Pete has been here at this point for what seven hours or so something like that. That's right and gentlemen. Is a great guy for the record. asked me to meet I. Thought it was just going to be a quick. Little conversation turns out to be a long conversation. Our one o'clock come back in. Thanks for repeat. Describe your emotions. there there is a confluence of factors that Kinda got me heated that you were pissed. Mostly my my time isn't valued by St- The station so Why are you sharpshooting me like that? No, not you're not the station you. that. We made it clear you don't own the station. That is absolutely the only one in that boat so when you know my time start. Getting. Wasn't the station. Who did it was me? It was really me, but like I, said a confluence of factors that having a bad mood, and then as the time kept going. got more and more angry. I was just I ready to bolt by the time. Yes, I understand so gangster Peten is, you can blame me for their no episode last week I. I was a a diva. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no It's on me because your premise was I think you could have said I. Think you did say? You would've taken two minutes to come out or two seconds to come out and say the meetings going longer than I thought it was going to go so that's on me, you know the buck stops here. It's my. So, when I came back to the podcast studio from the meeting. And he clearly, you're on tilt. you know I recognize that I have no problem. I want people to be comfortable on us. Never gets you know violent or crossed the line I. You know listen. We got two years of a track record together. People are gonNA. Get pissed when you when you go to war together, you know it's. Not every locker room has moments of Utopian behavior You know every single day. So that's that's that's the way.

"Podcast that explains that all of this information is information. I want to be really clear about this particular issue. We talk a lot about these things we talk about a few other things as well. And I think even for the listener who doesn't find this. Topic to be particularly interesting one thing that we talk about at the very end of the podcast that I'd been meaning to ask him for awhile. And certainly I get asked a lot is what are the things that you still incorporate in your daily routine him has written so eloquently about this stuff and has caught aside so many ways to find these minimum effective doses. To optimize everything he's doing that. I think people wonder, hey, which of the things that have really stood the test of time. And so I actually found that last part of the podcast to be especially interesting. Even for me, though, I knew these things, and I can see all the things that Tim does day in and day out. But this sort of have him say, look if I had to pick five these would be the five Tim can be found all over the place. But I think the best places to see him are on his blog, which is Tim dot blog. You can follow him at t- ferris. That's F E R S on Twitter, and you find him at Tim Ferriss on Facebook and Instagram. I hope you enjoy this first episode half as much as I enjoyed recording it, and there will be lots more of these to follow. So with all of that said, please welcome Tim Ferriss. Hey, Tim, Peter. Thank you for having me anonymous weekend. My pleasure. It's been a good weekend could view to. Yeah. What I can't believe is in the relatively short period of time. You have lived here you've become essentially, the unofficial mayor of us. I like to get involved and to explore all the various nooks and crannies of any city that I live in and after seventeen years in the bay area. I felt like I'd left almost no stone unturned have many, dear friends or still there. But many of them have traveled outside and one of the places that was an annual migration was south by south west here in Austin and had wanted to move here. Right after college gotten to know it year by year with increasingly longer stays in the city before and after the festival self and now Thome couldn't be happier. Feel like every place. We went in the last three days. Everybody knew the owner of the restaurant would know you and the coffee shop, and I don't think I've drank more coffee and Chico in short period of time three days coffee, topa, Chico..

"Podcast. I listen to regularly and many friends I've shared this particular episode with this audio have now listened to it multiple times. It takes both Peter Nye few minutes to warm up. So there's a little bit of. Sort of what would you call it a small talk four play? But then it goes really deep, and we end up talking about a lot of things that people like, Peter, and I aren't supposed to talk about publicly. So with that said here, we go. Welcome to episode one of the Peter Tia drive. I can think of no better person to begin this podcast with then my very, dear friend, Tim Ferriss. Not only us Tim, really close friend. But he's also almost single-handedly. The reason this podcast is coming into existence. On other words, if you hate it, you can blame him Tim has been kind of on my case for about two years to do this and more than anything else. He's just really helped me think about how I can sort of put something together that allows me to create something that is sort of new and that is an already out there in terms of content. But also something that I'll find enjoyable to do in that hopefully will come across as podcast gets underway. I'm guessing most people listening to this know, a lot about Tim. But on the chance that there are some who don't think it's just worth kind of giving a little bit of background on him. He's been described as a quote a cross between Jack Welch and a Buddhist monk by the New York Times. He's one of fast company's most innovative business people. He's an early stage tech investor and adviser, and that includes a number companies that most people have heard of.

"He is our guest presenting sponsor on the Tim mckernan show, and I've said to people who will reach out to me, hey, do you, do you know Mark? You know, I mean, you just doing a spot and I get that. And I, I never take offence to it because ever since I started radio and people hear me doing endorsements, they wonder so like with metabolic meals, which I started doing commercials for in two thousand ten and probably in about twenty minutes. I'll be having metabolic meals here. Eight years later, almost nine years later, if I don't believe in something, I'm not going to give some big endorsement. That's just it's just the way I can't do that. Can't do it. So when it comes to Mark having gotten to know him and then also knowing my own personal situation where I needed somebody like Mark. And I didn't realize I needed him till I got age forty, and I'm going, oh my God, I didn't manage money properly. I really passionately want to convey to the audience, the importance of having a financial advisor. And this isn't like RIC. We have to have like some kind of multi-million dollar asset management scenario here this this is this could be your in your late teens, early twenties, and just having organized and just setting aside smallest amount of money and what it can mean for you as it compounds over time. It's so easy. And I think I think what if I go back to myself in the early twenties, I'm just thinking to myself now the early twenties early twenties that I'm going, I don't really. I don't really need this now of Onoda 401K is who cares? And I wanna be able to go out and I wanna play poker and bat and travel and like, you know, whatever, I'll make money. Nope, save it then and his this like gross, let somebody who understands the program take care of you and his name's Mark Hanno with evergreen..

"Then I just go like, and how is it's not obvious, but then you get in a weird spot because he start talking about it and then you put your career risk by talking about it. So I'm I'm entering into a high risk area, but you know my little world. So this is what we're gonna talk about. So the. Question was asked about my in laws specifically, but I'm using my family talk about faith because I think that's where it enters into as if the two can't coexist. And by that, I mean that religion and sexuality can't coexist. I'll take it a step further that being a good person. Now definition good person is different. Like sometimes I'll hope you'll. He's a good Christian white have left how how the Jewish guy listing feel about that as an agnostic. I feel about that. I mean, like the self awareness of the statement, but whatever. I, like I said, it doesn't affect me. But, hey, we're making observations questions were asked him giving you my opinion. That the the thought process that sexuality is bad, and then therefore one who discusses it is either acting badly or inappropriate Lee is is a, I think, a commonly accepted thought process in most of society in twenty eight teen. And so. I liked challenge that now I don't go out of my way to challenge. Okay. Now it's time for Tim to talk about sex in, say how you can still be a good person to talk about sex. But I, I find it amusing really that you know what's say, an athlete or coach is involved with some kind of abuse, domestic abuse violence off the field off the court off the ice, whatever issues, but then that person can you know issue the standard. I apologize and then come back and then like a week later after the Twitter pitchfork mafias moved on, it's almost forgotten or is forgotten, and then you have that person on and it's fine to have that person on your show. But then if you have somebody who is a sex worker on the show, I can't advertise on that show. Well, I mean they're consenting adult doing something that's not against the law. But somehow it's I, I mean, legitimate. I wonder about that. It's like when I say, I understand I can't say the word. Fuck when I'm hosting the radio show. I understand. I can say, I can say the word, fuck when I'm doing the podcast. I don't understand why I just know what the rules are in. So I had here to them even though they are not my personal rules, but I'm just pointing out what I what I find to be, you know, some some kind of societal conundrum. So along those lines when it comes to, you know, the the conversations about porn or sexuality and how my family feels about it. What I would like to think. 'cause it's certainly not anything anybody's ever said, hey, don't talk about that. That I, they know me and they see how I behave. You know, when I'm not on the radio and it's not like, you know, they, they walk into our house and and like I have, you know, a variety of Hustler's beaver hunt, light out, laid out on the coffee table. You know it. So my whole premises, unless I'm off the Mark on this almost every human being enjoys sacks. It's a huge part of life. It's an incredibly important part of the existence of it, much less the living of it. Everybody enjoys it. Everybody does it, but yet we can't talk about it and I don't understand why, or if we do talk about it, it's, oh, you're, you're out of line. He wouldn't say this. He's a better per- he's a good Christian, you know, I mean, and it, it's okay. Well, you know. What? What are our parameters for determining who is good and who is bad. And I'm not saying I'm good and somebody else's bad. I'm just saying, I oftentimes get labeled as bad or you can't be on that show because they talk dirty. I can't listen to my kids and my car and listen. I understand that and again, that's to each their own. And that is a level of comfort. You know, for me if somebody is supposedly a quote, unquote good Christian, but they're on their attacking a group of people because of something that they find to be immoral..
