May be worth adopting plant based diet to ease chronic migraine severity, say doctors Stony Brook University and University of Pennsylvania, November 22, 2021 Prescribed meds, elimination diet, yoga and meditation provided no or little symptom relief Boosting dark green leafy veg intake may be key It may be worth adopting a plant based diet, rich in dark green leafy vegetables, to ease the symptoms of chronic migraine, suggest doctors in the online journal BMJ Case Reports. (next) Exercising at the start of fast can help people reach ketosis 3.5 hours faster: study Brigham Young University, November 24, 2021  Now a new Brigham Young University study published in the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise finds that exercising intensely at the start of a fast may help maximize health benefits of temporarily foregoing food. Ketosis occurs when the body runs out of glucose—its first, preferred fuel—and begins breaking down stored fat for energy, producing chemicals called ketones as a byproduct. In addition to being a healthy energy source for the brain and heart, ketones combat diseases like diabetes, cancer, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. (NEXT) To calm your emotions, get 15 minutes alone University of Rochester, November 24, 2021 Being by yourself—even for just 15 minutes—may decrease your strong positive and negative emotions, and instead reduce stress and induce calm, a new study suggests. Lead researcher Thuy-vy Nguyen, a doctoral candidate in clinical and social sciences in psychology at the University of Rochester, together with the cofounders of self-determination theory, psychology professors Richard Ryan and Edward Deci, conclude that solitude can lead to relaxation and stress reduction—as long as people actively chose to be alone. (NEXT) Fermented tea could help protect the liver from high-fat diet damage Tianjin University (China), November 30, 2021 Water extracts of a fermented tea, known as Pu-erh tea, could help to reduce oxidative stress and protect the liver against damage caused by a high fat diet, research in rats has found. The study, published in Food Science and Human Wellness, investigated the potential of the polyphenol and theabrownin-rich fermented tea to protect the liver after previous studies linked the tea to a raft of health benefits. “Pu-erh tea can be used as a potential healthy drink for prevention and/or treatment of fatty liver disease and many diseases associated with oxidative stress,” suggested Jing and colleagues. (NEXT) Excessive media exposure to traumatic events could harm kids Florida International University, November 20, 2021 FIU scientists investigating the effects of hurricanes and other natural disasters on children's brain development previously found that increased exposure to media coverage of disasters led kids to have post-traumatic stress (PTS) symptoms regardless of physical proximity. A new follow-up study led by FIU psychologists Anthony Dick and Jonathan Comer confirmed those findings and also showed that individual differences in the response in a key brain region involved in detecting threats—the amygdala—predicted the degree to which viewing storm-related media coverage led children to develop PTS symptoms. (NEXT) Adults with ADHD four times more likely to have generalized anxiety disorder University of Toronto, November 20, 2021 A new nationally representative study published online in the Journal of Affective Disorders found that one in four adults aged 20-39 with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) had generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). Those with ADHD were four times more likely to have GAD at some point in their life, when compared to those without ADHD. Even after controlling for other relevant factors, including sociodemographics, adverse childhood experiences, and a lifetime history of substance use disorders and major depressive disorders, those with ADHD still had more than double the odds of GAD. (OTHER NEWS NEXT) The Madness of Anthony Fauci Rather than own up to his disastrous policy and medical advice, Fauci instead is accelerating his messianic impulses.  By Julie Kelly It's nearly impossible to select the most maniacal comment made by Dr. Anthony Fauci in his nearly 70-minute interview with “Face the Nation” host Margaret Brennan that aired over the weekend. Joe Biden's chief coronavirus advisor and miniature global menace spent more than an hour denying responsibility for his documented mistakes, bragging about his self-appointed role as the world's doctor, hogging credit for the vaccines, and attacking anyone who has challenged his unrivaled ego and track record of failure. Portraying himself as a victim rather than the cruel, megalomaniacal tyrant he is, Fauci took aim at Donald Trump, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, Senators Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas), and Congressional co-sponsors of the “Fire Fauci Act,” which would zero-out the salary of the federal government's highest-paid bureaucrat and audit Fauci's correspondence and financial transactions during the pandemic. While declaring, “I represent science,” Fauci humbly graded the scientific approach to the pandemic an “A+” while incongruently  warning about a “fifth wave” of the virus and explaining away one scientific stumble after another, from useless temperature checks to the need for bi-annual booster shots and randomly claiming the virus spread is “40 to 50 to 60 percent . . . asymptomatic.” Science! Of all his alarming remarks, however, Fauci's push to get experimental vaccines for babies and young children to market as quickly as possible is the most depraved. When asked by Brennan, who has spent the better part of two years asking Fauci how to run her life and the lives of 330 million Americans, when he expects vaccines for children between the age of six months and five years to be available, Fauci said he hopes the shots are ready by the beginning of next year. “I would hope it would be in the first quarter because the studies are being done right now on children from two to five and then from six months to two years,” Fauci told Brennan. “I don't think there's going to be an issue with efficacy. But when you're dealing with children, it's a very sensitive area. And that's the reason why [it] may take a little bit longer.” When parents question whether it's necessary to vaccinate children, Fauci replies that, “yeah, we do want to be vaccinating the children because we want to vaccinate and protect everyone in society, including children.” Now, that is not the conclusion of a sound man of science, as Fauci again insisted he is in the interview, or even a man of common sense and humanity—that is the raving of a madman.Only a demon would propose injecting a child, including babies who cannot yet even walk or talk, with a rushed “vaccine” to allegedly minimize a virus that poses no serious health threat to them. Only a sociopath would dismiss parental fears about not just the medical necessity of the shot for the child but also unknown side effects that their children could suffer in both the near and long term. And only a sadist would continue to promote his own destructive policies that have inflicted incalculable human suffering but done nothing to halt the spread of a virus that is lethal to only a tiny percentage of the population. In a just world, Anthony Fauci would be giving lengthy television interviews clad in an orange jumpsuit from the confines of a federal penitentiary. Aside from his crimes against humanity, especially the tragic toll on senior citizens and young people, Fauci has clearly committed a number of crimes including lying to Congress and the American people in his official capacity and misappropriating federal funds on ghoulish scientific experiments. He violated the Hatch Act by using his government post for political purposes; for example, the weekend before the 2020 election, Fauci told the Washington Post that Joe Biden “is taking [the pandemic] seriously from a public health perspective,” but that Trump was only looking at it from an economic standpoint. Contradicting the president, Fauci warned the country was in for a “world of hurt” with rising COVID-19 cases and that “all the stars are aligned in the wrong place as you go into the fall and winter season.” Fauci has repeatedly and treasonously defended the Chinese Communist Party, something he did yet again in his interview with Brennan. Still peddling the “wet market,” rather than Wuhan laboratory-produced, theory about the origins of SARS-CoV-2, Fauci disputed Brennan's claim that “Beijing acknowledges now that they don't think it originated in that market.” Fauci shot back: “I think you could say we don't know how and where it originated. There were wet markets in Wuhan that are ample opportunity for a virus to jump from an animal that gets brought in from all parts of China that are very closely related physically to bat enclaves in caves and come to the market. So I don't think anyone can say that it didn't come from here or it did come from here.” The vaccines for which Fauci takes credit have been a costly failure. He, along with Joe Biden, misled the American people into believing the vaccines are safe and effective. But caseloads continue to spike despite high vaccination rates; Fauci himself recently admitted the prophylactic effect of the vaccines has waned and boosters are now required to extend what little short-term benefit the first round of injections provided. COVID fatalities this year are slightly ahead of 2020, a metric no one, including Dr. Anthony Fauci himself, publicly predicted. Rather than own up to his disastrous policy and medical advice, Fauci instead is accelerating his messianic impulses. He's unsure, Fauci told George Stephanopoulos on Sunday morning, whether new lockdowns are needed to prevent the spread of the omicron mutation. “Prepare for the worst,” Fauci warned. Music, undoubtedly, to the ears of Xi Jinping. Ironically, Fauci, who laughed off his own criminal culpability related to the pandemic in Brennan's interview, wants others investigated both for the handling of COVID-19 and the four-hour protest at the Capitol earlier this year. In one sinister exchange with Brennan, Fauci nervously giggled and rhetorically asked Senator Ted Cruz, “What about January 6, senator?” He also wants a 9/11-style commission to investigate the Trump Administration's response to the crisis. The top focus, Madman Fauci noted, should zone in on why “Trump left things up to the states.” Chalk up the U.S. Constitution as another thing Anthony Fauci has no clue about. But perhaps Fauci is on to something. When Republicans take over the House next year, they should immediately form several 9/11-style commissions to investigate numerous scandals stemming from the Trump era; at the top of the list should be a public accounting of Fauci's leading role in the COVID-19 crisis; his misstatements to the public and Congress on the “science”; his relationship with the Chinese Communist Party; his political machinations before the 2020 election; and his ties to pharmaceutical companies and other parties with a financial interest in pushing vaccines. Further, Fauci should testify under oath on what scientific basis he recommended using American children, including babies, as pharmaceutical lab rats. If indeed he is “America's doctor,” as Margaret Brennan so obsequiously claimed, and to which Fauci agreed, then he should be properly investigated for medical malpractice at the very least. A wide-ranging federal probe into what happened during the pandemic? Maybe for once, the madman is right. (NEXT) With Low Vaccination Rates, Africa's Covid Deaths Remain Far below Europe and the US MISES INSTITUTE, 11/23/2021 NOTE: TOTAL POPULATION OF AFRICA 1.3 BILLION, LARGEST NATIONS NIGERIA (206 MILLION), ETHIOPIA (115 MILLION), EGYPT (103 MILLION) Since the very beginning of the covid panic, the narrative has been this: implement severe lockdowns or your population will experience a bloodbath. Morgues will be overwhelmed, the death total toll will be astounding. On the other hand, we were assured those jurisdictions that do lock down would see only a fraction of the death toll. Then, once vaccines became available, the narrative was modified to "Get shots in arms and then covid will stop spreading. Those countries without vaccines, on the other hand, will continue to face mass casualties." The lockdown narrative, of course, has already been thoroughly overturned. Jurisdictions that did not lock down or adopted only weak and short lockdowns ended up with covid death tolls that were either similar to—or even better than—death tolls in countries that adopted draconian lockdowns. Lockdown advocates said locked-down countries would be overwhelmingly better off. These people were clearly wrong. Undaunted by the increasing implausibility of the lockdown narrative, the global health bureaucrats are nonetheless doubling down on forced vaccines—as we now see in Austria—and we continue to be assured that only countries with high vaccination rates can hope to avoid disastrous covid outcomes. Yet, the experience in sub-Saharan Africa calls both these narratives into question: Africa's numbers have been far, far lower than the experts warned would be the case. For example, the AP reported this week that in spite of low vaccination rates, Africa has fared better than most of the world: [T]here is something “mysterious” going on in Africa that is puzzling scientists, said Wafaa El-Sadr, chair of global health at Columbia University. “Africa doesn't have the vaccines and the resources to fight COVID-19 that they have in Europe and the U.S., but somehow they seem to be doing better,” she said…. Fewer than 6% of people in Africa are vaccinated. For months, the WHO has described Africa as “one of the least affected regions in the world” in its weekly pandemic reports. But that "conventional wisdom" flies in the face of the reality of covid in Africa, which is that there have beenfewer deaths. In any case, the World Health Organization reports that covid deaths in Africa make up only 2.9 percent of covid deaths, while Africa's population is 16 percent of the global total. Africa's covid total could double or triple, and Africa would still be faring far better than Europe and the Americas. (NEXT) Excess Deaths Caused by Vaccines (an email letter) As you know, since the summer there has been a 10% excess of deaths in England, largely due to cardiovascular problems and mainly in younger adults and men. Some argue this is due to vaccines directly killing people, as the spike protein (produced in our bodies from the gene added to our cells by the vaccines) is known to damage heart cells, blood vessels, and the normal clotting mechanisms. Others claim it is the spike protein, but blame the spike protein produced by virus infection. I have now looked at the relevant data quite carefully, and the only explanation that fits all the data is as follows: The vaccines have reduced levels and/or duration of virus in individuals (hence also reduce severe covid symptoms) but unfortunately the spike protein produced by the vaccines added on top of the spike protein produced by the virus is having a lethal effect in many people. The net result is that vaccines have merely displaced deaths from being (and being recorded as) frank covid deaths to now being cardiovascular deaths, coincident with an increase in virus prevalence This phenomenon will fade away as the virus fades away after December, as the winter peak of respiratory diseases passes. But everything will be made worse if we roll out mass booster vaccinations. Regards Professor Anthony J Brookes Department of Genetics & Genome Biology University of Leicester (NEXT) Despite Pledge, Biden Leaves Tap Open, Approving Billions in Arms Deals to Saudi Arabia A new MintPress News study based on Dept. of Defense documents can reveal that U.S. weapons manufacturers have sold well in excess of $28.3 billion worth of arms to Saudi Arabia since the Yemen War began, including 20 separate deals inked during Biden's presidency. Alan Macleod MINT PRESS NEWS. November 19th, 2021 “The war in Yemen must end,” declared President Joe Biden in his first major foreign policy speech; “and to underscore our commitment, we are ending all American support for offensive [Saudi] operations in the war in Yemen, including relevant arms sales.” Yet studying sales records from the Department of Defense (DoD), MintPress can reveal that less than one year into his presidency, the Biden administration has already approved 20 separate weapons contracts, worth just shy of $1.2 billion, to Saudi Arabia alone. This includes a $100 million shipment of Black Hawk helicopters, support for Apache gunships, and a $78 milliondeal to buy 36 cruise missiles. A new and controversial $650 million deal announced earlier this month has yet to be finalized but will likely soon follow, boosting sales up to levels equal with the earlier years of the Trump presidency. Sorting through thousands of approved contracts, the Department of Defense has approved in excess of $28.4 billion worth of sales from American companies to the armed forces of Saudi Arabia since they began their military intervention in the Yemeni Civil War in March 2015. This includes billions of dollars worth of arms, supplies, logistical support and training services. While this is a gargantuan number (already larger than Yemen's gross domestic product), it is certainly a serious underestimate of just how much the military industrial complex is benefiting from what the United Nations has called the “world's worst humanitarian crisis.” In addition to the $28 billion figure, Saudi Arabia is also a named customer (often along with other nations) in weapons deals worth more than $34 billion over the same period. However, the amounts the Saudis actually paid in these were not disclosed, though in some of these orders Saudi Arabia was clearly the primary buyer. For example, a $3.4 billion DoD-approved radar deal with Raytheon lists only two buyers: Saudi Arabia and the tiny nation of Kuwait (population 4.2 million). Added together, this means that the DoD has greenlighted the sale of somewhere between $28 billion and $63 billion worth of arms from American companies to Saudi Arabia since the latter began its attack on the largely civilian population of Yemen. The biggest profiteer from Yemen's destruction has been aviation giant Boeing, which brought in $13.9 billion in sales over the period. Next comes Lockheed Martin, which has signed 62 separate contracts with the Kingdom since March 2015, worth in excess of $7.4 billion. Third on the list is missile expert Raytheon, which has cashed in on the violence to the tune of $3.3 billion. In total, 86 U.S. companies have profited from sales to Saudi Arabia since its intervention in Yemen, including household names like General Electric, Booz Allen Hamilton and Honeywell. The full list is also available in the accompanying spreadsheet.

A Man Embraces His Power Does your health span match your lifespan? This is the question Marc David, founder of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, answers for Augustine, who is striving to not just live longer, but healthier. Join them in this inspiring conversation about physical, emotional, and mental vitality that goes beyond just food, working out, and weight loss.   Key Insights: Augustine, 49, shares his journey about health goals and life aspirations with Marc David. As the owner of a CrossFit gym, he is eager to learn the strategies and approaches to increasing his longevity.  A key concept in the longevity universe is that of our “health span,” which is the length of our lives spent in good health and free from chronic disease. While it's good to focus on longevity, it's equally important to consider how we can maintain our health as long into the future as possible. As this episode explores, physical fitness is not the only type of fitness that is important. Mental and emotional health, relationships, and spirituality are also vital aspects of one's wellbeing, and necessary for a long and healthy life. When it comes to longevity, it's easy to stray into perfectionism, which ultimately can hamper our progress with health and well-being.  Ironically, the more we learn about longevity (often referred to as “bio-hacking” or “DIY biology”), the easier it is to become hyperfocused on all the strategies we can use to increase it. Getting clear on what your personal goals are, learning how to weed out what's not useful to your unique longevity quest, and staying out of overwhelm is key. With his dual training in clinical nutrition and psychology, Marc David has spent the last 40 years helping people around the world heal their relationship with food.

Episode 69 continues  the story of the autopsy.  This episode covers the actual autopsy report submitted by Commander Humes  and its contents and ramifications for the autopsy.   Join us in this sixth  episode  and in a whole series of episodes about the fantastic goings on that encompass this part of the JFK story.   Readers are advised that this episode is graphic in its audio depiction and  recapitulates  the actual contents of the autopsy report  itself .  Listener discretion is, therefore,  advised.  Listeners who  are squeamish when discussing  medical matters  may wish to listen to  only the prologue portion of the episode and skip the details of the autopsy which are  contained in the narrative portion  of this episode.There is  more direct forensics to come in this series of  forensics episodes.  Stay tuned,  and eventually we'll explore  more of the physical evidence involving use and ownership of the   Mannlicher Carcano rifle and  evidence  recovered from the Presidential limousine, as well as damage done to the vehicle.  Our episodes have now begun  to explore  an array of matters that  dive into a deeper  darkness  related to what  went on that day in Dallas and in the  period before and after the assassination.  Matters   that possibly point  to a  wider  and more sinister  plot to kill the president and  that clearly call into question the theory that there was a  lone assassin.   Complex cases without  an eyewitness that can actually identify the shooter make the forensic and circumstantial evidence that much more important.  Ironically, problems abound with much of the evidence in this case. Evidence that is complex, incomplete and sometimes conflicting. Even as early as 1964, rumors and serious concerns over  the lone gunman theory and the evidence that might contravene it,  were becoming a major concern for the government and the commission. Conspiracy theories were contrary to the government's stated narrative from the very beginning. Stay tuned as there are many more episodes to come!This series comprehensively explores the major facts,  themes, and  events leading up to the assassination in Dealey Plaza and the equally gripping stories surrounding the subsequent investigation. We  review  key elements of the Warren Commission Report , and the role of the CIA and FBI. We explore the  possible involvement of the Mafia in the murder and the review of that topic by the government's House Select Committee on Assassinations in the 1970's. We explore the Jim Garrison investigation and the work of other key figures such as Mark Lane and others. Learn more about Lee Harvey Oswald the suspected killer and Jack Ruby the distraught Dallas night club owner with underworld ties and the man that killed Oswald as a national TV audience was watching.  Stay with us as we take you through the facts and theories in bite sized discussions that are designed to educate, and inform as well as entertain the audience. This  real life story is more fascinating than fiction. No matter whether you are a serious researcher or a casual student, you will enjoy the fact filled narrative and story as  we relive one of the most shocking moments in American History.

Symptom Management Supplements for the Endo Belly

Do you suffer with the endo belly? Is it accompanied by bloating, diarrhea, constipation or abdominal cramping? Whilst I'm all about getting to the root cause and find out WHY you're suffering with the endo belly (not to mention, healing the root cause) I also understand the need for short-term symptom relief whilst we're on that journey. Today's podcast episode offers just that. I am sharing the most effective supplement options that help to relieve endo belly flares in the moment. These are the tools and strategies we use in our SIBO training with Dr. Siebecker, but are safe if you don't have SIBO but do suffer with IBS symptoms. You will find all the dose references in the show notes, but remember - as a health coach I cannot prescribe you a treatment protocol, this is education only and the aim is for you to take this information away to discuss your options with your doctor. Full credit to my tutor Dr. Allison Siebecker for teaching and providing us with these strategy relief tools!   Activated Charcoal So first up we're starting with activated charcoal, which is great for:  Diarrhea Abdominal pain (not pelvic pain)  Gas Acid reflux It works by absorbing gases, which reduces pressure in the gut that can lead to cramping and of course, reduces bloating. It's also absorbs fluid, so reduces diarrhea too.  The doses are: Up to 1000mg, every 1-3 hours for diarrhea. Up to 1000mg, every 2-6 hours for bloating/gas/abdominal pain.  Up to 1000mg 30 mins before a meal and one hour after for endo belly ‘trigger' foods. Now what I mean by this, is if you have to eat something that you know is probably going to make you bloat or gassy, or swell you up, but you're a bit stuck for choices, say you're at a family thing or wedding, or you're on holiday, then you could use charcoal. I don't advise you just use it for every meal so you can eat whatever you want, because you'll end up very constipated because it absorbs fluid, but I have found it very helpful on holiday and at weddings. Up to 500mg every 2-3 hours for acid reflux. So, some things to consider when taking charcoal: Do not consume more than 4000mg per day.  It can cause constipation, so reduce the dose if constipation occurs or use with magnesium citrate (which you'll learn about shortly) or stool softeners, and I've listed some natural stool softeners in the handout. If you do use magnesium citrate to avoid any constipation, take it an hour after the charcoal or before bed. Your bowel movements may look dark after charcoal - don't worry, it just stains everything!  Absorbs everything, so take it 30 minutes before meals/supplements/meds and/or one hour after. Some research has showed that in it can cause vomiting if accidentally inhaled, so if you struggle with small airways or swallowing, be cautious with this. I also personally prefer using capsules, as I have tried using the powder stirred in water and have accidentally inhaled it myself one or two times!   Ginger Next up is my absolute favourite, and that's ginger.  Ginger is effective for: Nausea/vomiting Gas Bloating Fullness/food won't go down Abdominal pain  Ginger is a prokinetic, which means it stimulates the MMC and gut motility, so it moves gas down and out of the small intestine. This therefore helps with gas, bloating, pressure, and abdominal pain, and it helps food to go down as well if you're feeling like you're not digesting your food properly. And I've mentioned, it's a great tool for nausea and vomiting.  The doses are: 1000mg an 1-2 hours after meals or at bedtime for nausea/bloating/gas/vomiting/ab. pain.  1000mg 30 mins before meals to aid with appetite if nauseas.   So, some things to consider when taking ginger are: Do not consume more than 2000 mg per day.  It can cause something called ginger burn, which feels like heat or acid reflux is the oesophagus or stomach. If that occurs, take less, stand up and move around so it starts to go down (as ginger burn often happens when lying down or reclining in many of my clients) and sip on lots of water. In people with interstitial cystitis, as it's a spice, it might cause some irritation, but this tends to vary from person to person. Finally, fresh ginger root is usually not as effective as dried ginger root powder, so we're going for a 1000 mg in the form of capsules.   Peppermint Peppermint can be used for: Abdominal pain Bloating General IBS symptoms (there's LOTS of research on peppermint for IBS) Indigestion Pain with bowel movements (which I know many of you suffer with)  Peppermint relaxes the smooth muscle of the intestines, so helps significantly with cramping and abdominal pain, and helps to ease the transition of gas. It's also been shown to be 67% effective for reducing severe IBS symptoms, pretty impressive stuff! So, the doses are: Use peppermint tea/or tincture (follow label dose) for pain or sensations higher up in the abdomen (this is because peppermint generally works locally, so if you feel symptoms around the stomach area, the peppermint tea or tincture will be able to affect that area because it's not sealed up in a pill, whereas the pills are coated and are designed to not be released until they exit the stomach). Label dose of triple coated tablets for mid to lower abdominal symptoms, as needed or daily. Research has shown that pain and symptoms improve significantly with long-term use with peppermint oil. Can also apply peppermint essential oil to abdomen. Follow label instructions as some oils require diluting in a base oil. A quick tip here, is you can use Be You patches, which I share on my podcast, over the abdomen, to ease spasms. You can keep those on for 12 hours and you can wear them daily. So, some things to consider when taking peppermint are: It can cause acid reflux in some people because it relaxes the muscles, it can open up the sphincter connecting the stomach and the oesophagus, so stomach acid can travel up. If this happens to you, try a pill that's triple coated and designed to bypass the stomach. For some people, peppermint can also cause nausea.   Magnesium Magnesium citrate or oxide can be used for:  Constipation These types of magnesium draw water into the colon, helping to create a bowel movement. The dose is:  Up to 2000 mg at bedtime (two hours after food), daily or as needed until you have a bowel movement. However, 1000 mg is normally effective for many, but see what works for you. So, some things to consider when taking magnesium citrate or oxide are: You need to start slowly, beginning at 500 mg and building up until you find the dose that works for you. Generally, increasing your dose slightly each night should be a good pace, but keep in mind it can take a few nights to get to work, so don't be too hasty.   Too much will cause abdominal cramping, bloating and diarrhea. If that occurs, reduce the dose back down until you get to a dose that creates a healthy bowel movement without watery stools or discomfort. Food will reduce the effects, so keep in mind you need to take it two hours away from food. And finally, you have to use either magnesium oxide or citrate, other forms of magnesium are not laxatives and will be absorbed in the body, rather than making their way down into the colon.   Partially Hydrolysed Guar Gum PHGG be used for: All IBS symptoms (multiple studies/reviews confirm this) Constipation Improving stool consistency Diarrhea Bloating/gas Increasing beneficial bacteria PHGG is a type of soluble, low FODMAP fibre, which is generally safe and well tolerated by even SIBO patients! It's a longer term symptom management tool, whereas the others bring relief same day, this tends to need about a month to build up to the benefits. It helps to bulk up stools, making it effective for both constipation and diarrhea. So, the dose is: 5-6 g daily, ideally dissolved in hot water on an empty stomach, for at least one month and likely ongoing for maintenance. Some people do put it with tea, coffee, smoothies or even porridge, but many of the labels suggest on an empty stomach.  Increase to full dose across one to two weeks, especially if SIBO positive, so start out lower, with say one gram, and then increase by a gram or half a gram a day.   So, some things to consider when taking partially hydrolysed guar gum are: Ironically, in some people, likely people who have SIBO or extensive gut issues, it might cause bloating. So, give yourself a month or so on it and see how you respond. If it's noticeably bad, reduce back down to a level you can tolerate or discontinue. Generally, it is thought to be SIBO safe, but we're all different and SIBO is so individual, that we can't guarantee it'll be well tolerated by everyone. And alongside that, it may cause some GI distress, so basically an irritation of your IBS symptoms and if you have SIBO and don't respond well to it, it could worsen those. However, as I've mentioned, on the whole, it's well tolerated.   Most Important Takeaway: So, that wraps up this module, and I wanted to also let you know, there are multiple other options to help with symptoms, including more supplements and some at home remedies. I've linked to a handout in this slide by my tutor Dr. Allison Siebecker, which provides all of them. You don't need to use them all, but I would recommend you have a read of it, so you know your options, and I also recommend trying some of the simple home remedies before buying expensive supplements!  But before we do any of that, remember, getting our foundations in place can make a huge difference to gut health - so start off with the first line therapies, before you start spot treating with lots of different supplements.

How the Internet's Business Model Impacts Society with Tim Hwang

Oscillations

Play Episode Listen Later Nov 29, 2021 59:41


In our last episode, we talked about cognitive technologies, or behaviors that shape our capacities to think, communicate, and imagine. Cultural artifacts like language, visual drawings, math, and art are cognitive technologies because they allow us to link our minds together and invent new ideas that go beyond what any one mind could do on its own. They allow us to stabilize and share ideas across space and time to build increasingly complex tools, systems, and societies.Today, humans are at a point in society where we're creating things that we don't understand. A few decades ago, it was said we'd reached a point where no one individual could understand things we were starting to build, such as how computers work. Instead, it took a group of specialized experts to jointly piece together new technologies we were inventing. In the past few years, with increasingly complex artificial intelligence technologies, we've crossed another threshold: we've built things that nobody can fully understand - not even groups of experts. Unlocking this Pandora's box has created a positive feedback loop: In order to coordinate the collective interactions of new, complicated technologies, we must develop even more complicated systems. Ironically, many of the technologies are intended to simplify our lives - to allow us to more easily connect with one another, manage our finances, and order our groceries. But the speed at which new technologies are evolving in fact further complicates our lives. This is one of the major paradoxes of the 21st Century. (“Hashtag disruption!”)Today we're talking with Tim Hwang about one of the most pervasive examples of these technologies. It's the one that underlies the entire business model of the internet. And it's having a profound effect on human behavior at a global scale. We're talking about programmatic advertising. Tim is a writer, researcher, and currently the general counsel at Substack. He's the author of The Subprime Attention Crisis, a book about the online advertising bubble that we'll be discussing today. He's also a research fellow at the Center for Security and Emerging Technology and a board member of Meedan, a non-profit that builds software and programmatic initiatives to strengthen journalism, digital literacy, and accessibility of information. Previously he's served as the global public policy lead for artificial intelligence and machine learning at Google, as well as the director of the Harvard-MIT Ethics and Governance of AI Initiative, a $27M philanthropic fund and research effort working to advance the development of machine learning in the public interest.The ideas we'll cover are a bit jargonized and technical, but their implications are extremely broad and important. Tim believes we're in danger of another economic collapse, perhaps even orders of magnitude larger than the 2008 mortgage crisis. Given the technical nature of the topic, we're going to first review the main arguments in Tim's book and then ask him to connect his ideas to the themes we think about at Oscillations. We encourage our listeners to read The Subprime Attention Crisis, since there's a lot of information that we won't be able to cover in our conversation today. "Art is the signature of civilizations." -Beverly SillsJoin the movement from the very beginning.

We are all brainwashed from birth in our familial, economic, and citizenry culture. All brainwashing or indoctrination is not wrong.

But when said indoctrination causes permanent economic, social, or mental damage, they must be disengaged.

Evidence that is complex, incomplete and sometimes conflicting. Even as early as 1964, rumors and serious concerns over  the lone gunman theory and the evidence that might contravene it,  were becoming a major concern for the government and the commission. Conspiracy theories were contrary to the government's stated narrative from the very beginning. Stay tuned as there are many more episodes to come!This series comprehensively explores the major facts,  themes, and  events leading up to the assassination in Dealey Plaza and the equally gripping stories surrounding the subsequent investigation.

According to polls showing President Joe Biden's approval rating falling everyday — 57% of Americans disapprove of the job he is doing — Americans are answering our question the same way they answered Reagan's, with a resounding “NO!” Biden came into office having made dozens of bold promises. He vowed to eliminate the COVID-19 pandemic, a pledge he has failed to keep even with government “mandates” requiring employers to fire employees who refuse to be “vaccinated” with a government medicine. Ironically, Biden promised to improve our economy, despite the fact it was already functioning at record levels when he came to office. Instead, his socialist programs, “Green New Deal” attacks on traditional energy and paying Americans to stay home rather than work, have created shortages of workers, essential goods, a supply chain debacle and massive inflation driving many small businesses to close.

This week is the start of the year-end holiday season in the United States, which is associated with a lot of personal and professional stress. This episode looks at meditation as a concentration practice that can help you center yourself before writing. When I was a kid, an adult I trusted made some negative comments about meditation that stuck with me a long time. Even though I logically reject those comments now as being incorrect, I still sometimes remember them and think I may be judged for sharing my practice with anyone (let alone with the entire internet).  Ironically, meditation itself helped me become aware of the impact those comments had on me, and on deciding I wanted to change my mind about what that person had said. This week's episode includes a short meditation at the end.

Historic Day Bryce Young shatters a 52-year-old yardage record against the Razorbacks. Ironically, Young benefits by the close score as Alabama is forced to keep throwing the ball. 40 attempts later, Bryce finishes with 559 pass yards and 5 touchdowns. Former record holder Scott Hunter is on site as an honorary captain. His high yardage mark was 464 yards. Impossible to Stop Jameson Williams demonstrated his speed on a 79-yard touchdown where he split the defenders and hauled in a perfectly thrown pass from Bryce. Watch for the Young-to-Williams battery to dial up the action again as it may be impossible for some teams to defend. Offensive Line Finally Settled?

Scot: [0:15] Hey Jason and welcome back Jason Scott show listeners Jason is a fellow Gadget addict one of our favorite brands that we love from consumer perspective is Anchor and then we also spend a lot of time here on the show talking about anchor because it's a very interesting brand that is one of the few that we call kind of digitally native Amazon born so today on the show we are very excited to welcome Eric villines he is the head of Global Communications at anchor and is based out of Sunny Seattle Eric welcome to the show. Eric: [0:50] Thanks for having me we've also been having about two months of rain so we're living up to our our cliche. Jason: [0:59] That for the last two months that might have sounded bad but being here in Chicago I have a feeling that rain is about to start looking pretty good to me. Eric: [1:07] Yeah means known cold and wind. Jason: [1:09] Exactly all of the above although it's been pretty mild so far. Eric before we jump into all the anchor discussions we always like to get sort of a brief background about our guests and maybe you could tell us what your role is an anchor. Eric: [1:25] Sure so I run Global Communications at anchor Innovations which is essentially a fancy way of saying public relations. Which in time it's sort of corporate Communications you could be crisis Corporate social responsibility and then obviously the most exciting part of what I do which would be product PR dealing with the media on reviews and, I'm getting the word out of on the cool gadgets we. Jason: [1:51] That's awesome so does that mean you have one of everything. Eric: [1:55] I have two of everything. It's a funny story I've worked in consumer electronics for a long time and I remember Steven Yang who hired me personally for the role, I remember I was in China and I said I want to make sure that I've got budget to give everyone on my team, you know one of the products and he giggled and I'm absolutely serious, we all have to you know live it and breathe it and love it and know the good and the bad aspects of all of our products because we're talking with the media all the time so I kind of. I'm kind of insistent that everyone on my team has the products and then the other part is we all we can never run out of battery that's like that's like a major faux pas here, if I ever hear the words even coming out of my own mouth that my phone is almost out of juice that's super bad as a charging company. Jason: [2:45] That does seem off brand I am I have a little bit of a fetish for your products and the thing I've noticed is every time I have a family gathering I get completely cleaned out. Eric: [2:57] Oh yeah there is. Jason: [2:58] So I yeah I didn't realize you were in such a replenishment category but it's ended up being one for me. Eric: [3:04] It's funny because I started out an entertainment before I came into consumer electronics and one of the first things I did here because I'm just using my own family Dynamics as I have three children. And my wife of course is involved in this as well and we steal each other's cables constantly and then we lie to each other, about you know and it's gotten so bad that people take you know colored Sharpies and all sorts of things but we had done a survey, on you know what are some of the most irritating things that happen in the family and this came in like is a top four. People stealing each other's charging components and then lying about it so it's a national issue that we just haven't spent enough time talking about. Jason: [3:48] Yeah we'll have to dedicate a whole nother show to solving that problem one last product related question do you have a favorite anchor products. Eric: [3:57] Well gosh I so we have these new cables that you said fetish I don't want to take it too far but it's. It's the material that's made out of is reminds me of certain things and that Dominion but it's a super soft latex like, cable that seems to never because of the material it seems to never not up. And that's one of my favorite things and they come in all these super cool colors and that's really new for us we've always offered two colors a beautiful white and the Beautiful Black Version, and so this year we started getting into more colors and that's been really exciting because that's a really easy way to distinguish your product from say your son's because you can have different colors but the material it's really nice I keep them in my bag I've got him for all my products. Those are really cool we launched a new line of Mag go products which we have a desk version which allows you to, put your phone against and it'll you know magnetically charged it but the battery is removable so you can actually bring it with you, so it serves two purposes and I keep that like in the kitchen so when I'm cooking and I have my recipes but then I can grab it and go. So those are really cool but I mean man we launch new products every day so you ask me next week I'm going to tell you something completely different. Scot: [5:23] Yeah this is an unsolicited but my favorite is there's a little Hub you guys have for the Macbook so I can just plug in one USB C and I've got this thing I'm looking at it now it looks like a mutated octopus with with 800 things, poking out of it that I no longer have to plug into my MacBook so you're you're saving me a lot of ports which I really appreciate. Eric: [5:40] Yeah as they move to usb-c only but you still had a myriad of other things you needed to connect to it. Scot: [5:47] Yeah well now the magsafe is a now they're back yeah they decided they're giving you guys too much Martin said so now they now they have like they're like oh man when you need to add more stuff you know. Eric: [5:57] Well I've talked to a lot of pro users and they're really excited to see the HDMI cable come back it's just a you know it's a strong connection that cables is still different. And sometimes it's a huge hassle putting a hub attached to the computer and then attaching your HDMI cable and everything else to it. Scot: [6:16] Yeah absolutely especially when you're traveling and you're popping into someone else's conference room you'd never have that one little cable, so we obviously we talked a lot about anchor on the show and we can just kind of stopped fan blowing on the on the user side would love to hear kind of your view of the founding story of anchor, you know we kind of classify it as you heard is this kind of like Amazon born would love to know how you guys tell that story. Eric: [6:43] Yeah I mean it's you know I had relatives that move during the Dust Bowl and move to Pasadena and built. You know a chain of gas stations and it's this true Americana story but he what's interesting is I think Steven Yang story is very similar it is that that's story of an idea and perseverance and building and Global brand that. People have in their purses and backpacks even if they don't know it's anchor there's a strong probability that it is and that's that's one is exciting the others a branding dilemma. But Stephen was a senior engineer in California at Google and he had he was trying to find a new battery for his Toshiba laptop. [7:32] And as he was looking online including Amazon and the Toshiba websites he realized he had sort of two choices you either going to buy the one from Toshiba that was super expensive, for take a chance, on all of these other versions white-label versions and unknown brands on Amazon and and purchase one from their sort of buyer beware. And he kind of had a light bulb moment and thought you know this is this is ridiculous like who are the people that are putting these online how they've been tested how can I know that, what I'm buying is going to work with my laptop and you know give me a year of battery life. Long story short he moved back to China with his wife who was then his fiance he took a small loan from his mom. And he started anchor and in the beginning what Stephen did was go around to different factories and and Developers, and with his engineers and they went and tested all these batteries so in the beginning it was a white label play was him finding and filtering through. [8:38] I'll just say it a lot of garbage and trying to find the absolute best, alternatives to all of these laptop batteries and they started selling those through Amazon and that was the first point was the easiest place for them and selling specifically and exclusively to the United States. A year later it was a massive success beyond anything that he had ever imagined, and the next logical step was to take that concept and move it into mobility and start looking at mobile phones and chargers and portable batteries and all these things that were at the time, really starting to come out but the big difference when he went into Mobility is the idea was we need to get as fast out of, the white labeling as we can because we have some ideas that even these these smaller factories and people that were producing, can are doing that we can find ways to make it better, so that sort of unearth the world of you know contract manufacturing where they're Engineers were developing and designing, you know the specifics and then Contracting manufacturers to develop those products and the rest as they say is history. Ironically today we are celebrating our 10-year anniversary actually last month. [9:58] And that's a pretty big deal so we went from a guy and his wife. And a little mama money from his mom to a you know a multibillion-dollar company. With multiple Brands and over 3,000 employees all around the world. So in addition to charging which is still a huge huge part of our, DNA we've developed a number of Brands subsequently over the last three to four years everything from robotic vacuums and future robotic products, to home security high-end true wireless headsets. Smart Home Entertainment pet products baby socks I mean like you know smart baby socks I mean just like the whole gamut. [10:45] And the sort of the common line through all of this is that Steven and his team are constantly looking for areas within an emerging or establish consumer electronics area where they can bring value. And you know usually we might come in and the play might be okay we're going to come up with a really great product that's going to be, a little lower cost and that gets our foothold and then the the long-term strategy is then to LeapFrog over the competitors with something truly innovative. And this is kind of a phenomenon that's worked really really well. For Stephen and his engineers and the marketing teams and all of our sales people around the world. Scot: [11:28] Did he have an industrial design background hurry just had the pain and kind of cheeses and created the company from there. Eric: [11:37] Well he's a Hitman he's a True Blood engineer so I mean he's he's right at that right at the hardware level and into coding and all of that so the industrial design. Was not his core competency so bringing in people that that could fill in, those areas and ultimately well they say 10 years later we brought color right but of course then we had great devices that worked really well but we're but when we look at industrial design, I would say that you know that's what's going to propel us over the next 10 years with with the Thinker charging. Scot: [12:14] Yeah it's been the you know I really like kind of the functional but still kind of modern kind of vibe you guys have with your products it's really nice is he still with the company is you still still involved. Eric: [12:27] Yeah yeah I mean I talked to him regularly he is very approachable. It's interesting because he shares his office with two other people at the company and it's kind of this kitchen table set up he doesn't have a private office, because there's so much collaboration and you look around the company we're all like that even though I'm in Seattle, and in my office I do the same thing with my team we just take some long tables and we connect them up and everyone just sits on them because it's like jazz we're just constantly. You know coming up with ideas and talking and it's just more efficient. Jason: [13:06] I do want a Lobby by the way I feel like you have some cool colors now you have like a like a lavender and a mint but what you really need is like a retailgeek blue I think would be. Eric: [13:18] Retailgeek blue yeah. Jason: [13:20] Yeah I could send you the PMS colors at that. Eric: [13:22] Okay yeah send me the Pantone colors yeah the, yeah I mean we I would think the colors are sort of muted so they're they're a joke they don't offend anyone so they're not they're not super striking their kind of muted across the color spectrum but so far they've been. They've been received really really well there's there's an old joke and consumer electronics that people are always screaming for color. And then when you look at the sales and you find it's the white and black that sell the most. So it's like you need to have the color but in the end most people end up choosing the the kind of safer black and white. Jason: [14:05] Yeah now I actually I'll be honest the style of the colors fine and actually think they are attractive kind of pastel colors but the it's just nice to have a diversity because I actually have a system like I have one color for my USBC cables. Eric: [14:19] Mmm. Jason: [14:20] One color for my lightning cables so that I can you know quickly distinguish them in my back. Eric: [14:24] You're not messing around man. Jason: [14:27] I have a little I have a problem. So I it's funny in the early days of these kind of digitally native direct to Consumer Brands there used to be this religious battle there were companies that were like. And the path to the customer through Amazon we're going to sell this stuff on Amazon and I would characterize anchor as the poster child for the most successful brand that was born. By primarily making themselves available on Amazon and selling through Amazon's traffic. But for every company like that there was another company that's like that's crazy Amazon is going to steal your customer and knock you off and they're all these you know potential, downfalls to Amazon and you know we should own the customer ourselves and we should have our own website and so increasingly that became the Shopify contingency and so it used to be, you know a company was either an Amazon company or a Shopify company. And more recently I feel like the increasingly the answer is not or it's and that. You know the consumers on Amazon so you need to be on Amazon but you also do have consumers that want to buy direct and you should have your own website and. My proof point for that is I want to say in the last year or so anchor has launched its own Shopify site so I now can shop anchor on Amazon but also on your own direct website is that like. [15:54] Like you got did you guys have debates and conversations about that and was that a very overt decision or is it just something where you just swept up a Shopify side at some point and you really still think of yourself as an Amazon only company. Eric: [16:07] Well there's a lot to unpack I'm going to I'm going to try to I'm going to try to find the question in that statement, the first of all we started definitely start on Amazon and one of the things I would argue about Amazon is that it is direct, so whether you're selling on your website you know or you're selling on Amazon you're ultimately. [16:29] Selling direct through the Amazon platform and you're engaging with your customers and your you know you're dealing with customer service and all the things you would normally do so I think Amazon has been a great partner and it is it continues to be definitely a big part of our DNA. But as we evolved into different regions around the world you know that there are different channels, that in our sort of different stages of development but the omni-channel approach meaning, you know in our case Amazon which is always a big part of us our own website which is great for Branding and direct connection and through our Retail Partners because in the United States were sold everywhere we're sold at you know Best Buy Walmart Target, Etc you can go to medium art overseas, so we don't see ourselves as just a single Channel we definitely are see ourselves is an omni-channel but I think you know Amazon is provide us an incredible platform to launch on, the ability the ability I think for a person that has a great product looking to sell something and any part of the world where Amazon is is so convenient and so easy. [17:41] And you know the financial Commitment if you're just starting out and you're Distributing your products the platform has evolved its improved. And it's ultimately pretty easy to get going on the platform without you know a tremendous amount of financial backing. Jason: [18:02] Yep and it is interesting because you have you know been a heavy practitioner on the platform from the early days in it does feel like it's evolved a lot. From your guys's perspective do you still feel like there's a. Competitive advantage in knowing the platform better than other sellers like it feels like there's a lot of levers to pull now and I mean you know different companies with different levels of sophistication in their Amazon presents. Why does everybody learning all the best practices now and they're sort of parody or do you feel like you guys can still kind of win more than your fair share of eyeballs on Amazon. Eric: [18:38] I mean we we've been doing this for you know for 10 years now and so they're the they're the tools and there's the Instinct and then there's the the lessons learned from the billions of mistakes that we've made, along the way and I don't know those things are those things are harder to I think grass for people that are just coming into the space so I think we absolutely have an advantage, but you know I mean I think it's not magic it takes a lot of work and a lot of patience, and a lot of observation, you know if you're putting a listing on Amazon and you're putting that listing in Italy or France or the UK or whatever, you know simply Translating that listing into the local language is just the bare minimum I mean you're dealing with customer service and being able to communicate. With customers being able to deliver products on time being able to answer their questions be able to take returns and then that's you know even before you've really thought about marketing because there are. [19:44] Something like nine million sellers on Amazon right now and that is a huge ocean, just filled and filled with Fish And you are you're battling against the the those eyeballs every day. Organic search or even direct search you're going to you know if you go up and look for toothpaste I mean you know, in the search engine you're going to see a myriad of players in there including you know ones that are common Brands to others that seem interesting and what's going to draw the eyeball away from the common brand that everyone knows too, the new brand what's going to make the consumer just try and reach out a discover you and take that extra effort so everyone going on to any platform, that may deal with a bunch of Brands is dealing with you know millions of competitors and it stopped. [20:39] I think getting set up on the platform and getting started is easy but that's that's you know that's step one, but then you got to get people seeing your listings and you got to get people reading your listings and you got to get people putting stuff in their shopping cart and clicking the shopping cart and, fulfilling and then you know being there at the end of that process to give them great customer service in every language, where you're selling that product because if you can't do that and that last part is critical, you're going to get bad reviews and people don't buy products with two and sometimes even three star ratings when you're dealing with you know consumer electronics they're looking for four and five. So you could have the greatest product in the world but you could have a lot of mad consumers out there where you haven't done right by them and they're not going to give you some great star ratings and you can pretty much. You know kiss your Prosperity goodbye. Jason: [21:33] Yeah I sometimes describe it as a. A darwinian meritocracy that like you know if you think about old school if you sell a product to Walmart and they give you shelf space and you screw up and run out of stock, you lose all the sales while you're out of stock but the day you restock your back on the Shelf your kind of entitled to that that shelf position. The duration of a program but you have to earn that visibility in the front of the Amazon shelf what every minute through a wide variety of best practices and if you screw up, you fall off that shelf and when you get back in stock you don't get your spot back you got to climb back up the hill. Eric: [22:10] Yeah yeah I mean especially now in today's climate there's a lot of. Material shortages and other things and that's been you know super painful for four people across every, line of business not just consumer electronics and that very same thing you know you're working hard to develop customer base and then, you don't have the materials to produce the products or the factories that you're working with and then you can't fulfill you been all this great marketing you brought everyone to your front door and then, grab we don't have any products, and that's it's painful to see for especially you know entrepreneurs and people new to the game because they have brilliant ideas and great products and. You know they've done an amazing job building word-of-mouth and it's super sad to see that fail at that last step. Jason: [23:03] For sure that actually is a great segue we're recording this in mid-november double 11 day just happened Black Friday is next week. As we sit here I think there's something like ninety one container ships off the coast of Long Beach either a bunch of cool new anchor products like trapped in those boats what's holiday looking like for you are you guys well well stocked and well positioned. Eric: [23:30] I think we are with some things and we could be better and other things I mean again we have the advantage of having a lot of skus so we I would say it's easier for us, to adapt, then than others and you know I can say from my perspective if I go out on a media to and September and I show a lot of really cool gadgets. And then we reach the end of October and I'm like well crap so that isn't coming we're going to we're going to delay that because of something it is what it is what we're used to it. But we have so many skus that you know we were Prime day or Black Friday or Cyber Monday or just basic Christmas shopping or Hanukkah shopping we've got something, so we can adapt it will get past it. Jason: [24:23] Yeah speaking of which I given that you're in the consumer at Rackspace is CES ordinarily a big part of your marketing mix. Eric: [24:32] I would say it is I think in the new world order it isn't as important for us. But we you know we've done Big Boost and we've done stuff and you know our sales teams of gone out there I think it's wait and see. This January we've done some some interviews with with media and I think we found that maybe forty percent of those that normally attend are coming, the rest are waiting and seeing we didn't do a booth this year I've also heard from our sales team that their counterparts at some of the retailers may not be coming in January as well. So I don't know is it going to be like a bad prom or nobody dances. I think we're going to have to wait and see I think maybe for many it's going to be a real last minute decision. Jason: [25:25] Yeah it's interesting I've attended like 28 CES has and I'm not going and, talking which I used to catch a flu at CES every single year so it's the I'm not care. I think Tom Clancy wrote a book where like the terrorist likes bedspread the biological Weapon by disseminating it at CES just for. Eric: [25:47] Perfect yeah I think it's you know I think people I think you have to have a vaccination card this time around to get in I think that's what I've heard but yeah I mean from point A to Z you know your. There's a lot of airplanes. Jason: [26:02] I'm kind of curious I think less people are going to but then the magic question is. Does that kind of will they discover that the world didn't end when they didn't go and put your point like does that accelerate the changing World Order and CES becomes less important or you know is this just going to be a down year and next year they'll be back to normal I think, that's going to be interesting to watch. Eric: [26:22] Yeah I mean there's CS is just the beginning you've got Mobile World Congress you've got aoife you've got you know as we move into next year and all of them are going to have to be making those tough decisions. And then I think that the repercussions of companies that didn't go in the world didn't sink either going to be wondering you know what are these what's the value of these trade shows. To us as a business you know I think for us they're valuable you know on the one end of the communication Spectrum it's super beneficial to scale our pitching by having an enormous number of people from all around the world in ones. But it's also very noisy so you know you're competing with a lot of large names. And we've always been very Scrappy so we tend to do a lot of are moving and communication before CES. And after CES or even entirely outside of the you know the wake of any of these trade shows. So and that's that's generally how we've been successful. Scot: [27:27] Brickell any other interesting holiday Trends or anything you guys noticed as we've kind of gone through covid and or kind of hopefully coming out the back side. Eric: [27:37] Yeah I mean I you know not to sound boring but charging is always a big thing during the holidays people bought their new iPhones people are buying new MacBooks people are buying peripherals. And you know around that time usually you know a couple of weeks later when they lost their cables already or you know they realize they won't one for travel and they wanted to stay home and they want one in their home office and they want one in the kitchen, so it's always a good time for us in that category, so charging definitely the other big part of our business right now is audio so our sound Core Audio brand, we develop a super popular line of true wireless headphones the Liberty series, and one of the things that makes it unique is we work with a bunch of grammy award-winning Engineers to help us tune them, so they would come out of the box sounding like the mix that the engineers originally in planned versus over based or over traveled, that's been really really popular for us all around the world I mean as far as India hugely popular in the United States the UK Germany, Emerging Markets that's a big thing and then I'd say home security that's been a big a big Boon for us we launched our home security brand yuffie about three years ago. [28:59] And you know we're developing a lot of unique products in that space that separate us from the rest for one we don't we don't use the cloud when you buy the product at your. [29:12] All of the footage is captured on a secure SD card that's integrated either into the base station or the independent products that you put outside the house. Which is really cool and we have millions of users around the world right now, using that product because they see it not only is protecting your security but also their privacy. [29:32] You'll see a lot of people do personal gifts to themselves during the holiday so a lot of those those big, tend to be you know people in a house saying hey how about we get this for ourselves for Christmas, and and we recently launched a super-smart robotic vacuum called the X8 it's are you fee robotic vacuum. That's super smart so instead of bumping into walls and trying to figure things out at uses both Visual and Laser mapping. And will actually draw up a map of your house that you can look at on your phone, and see it's how it's found the most ingenious way of cleaning around chairs and couches and other things and making sure that it can do everything and then you can create zones, I didn't say well I just want to let stay away from the baby room because the baby's sleeping but you can clean this Zone and that zone and this Zone. That's been really popular and we had been doing kind of lower in robotic vacuums until that point. Entry level and this was one of our first push and super-premium summarize forleo some but that LeapFrog, so in the beginning we might find Our Place coming in as as a lower-cost alternative that still is super quality, and then with the X8 we're doing the LeapFrog moment and trying to jump past the competition with the technology. Scot: [30:59] Frankel, so one of the things we want to do is Pivot you guys have some other innovations that are not gadgets or charging or anything like that, you guys launched a new division that both Jason and I were excited to learn more about called ocean wing. My guess was it was drones but I think that's wrong tell you tell us more about what ocean when you. Eric: [31:24] Yeah so I say first with the title but when I first started working with anchor Innovations in the United States over four years now, I was actually working for ocean Lee that was our that was how we presented our Corporation, and the the story is that it was ocean Wing to essentially take our technology and fly across the Pacific or Atlantic Ocean and bring it to the United States. So when the idea came up of developing a Consulting business, under anchor Innovations the ocean Wing name came up again and simple it's actually makes a hell of a lot more sense for this than it may have Hazard LLC in the United States when we were bringing anchored to the United States. [32:14] But long story short we established in 2019 so we've been around awhile we have about 200 employees around the world. And the long and the short of it is that we're trying to take the the decade of experience that we've developed. Again with all those mistakes along the way to become you know the 7 billion dollar, consumer electronics company and give people an option to improve their business lines, so that's from the beginning to the end of the process and what we're looking for is companies that have already gone in and let's just say made their first 10 million, and they've hit a wall. [32:55] Because they haven't been able to expand the business or scale either through supply chain issues through fulfillment customer service maybe the advertising has become, complicated and convoluted because they've developed so many skus there's just so many problems that when someone reaches a certain point and they want to get to that next 10 or 20 million dollars when they're doing business, it's a different skill set, you know what they've done is worked it to a certain point and they is try as they might they can't get past that threshold and that's where we come in, so we're developing essential overall Amazon selling and operations processes that could be digital marketing marketing insights, advertising management helping them develop their Brand store and their product pages to customer service and relationship management which I mentioned earlier is. Reticle to get those star ratings in a good place through good authentic communication with your customers in a great experience with the products. [33:59] Obviously e-commerce and all the financial systems, and then what we're dealing with a lot these days is supply chain and Logistics management so you get yourself to a certain point and there's a lot of people that are coming to us and that is the area, where they're really hurting the most and they need help they need help developing new contacts new supply chain partners, for how do I deal with the issue if you're dealing with something that might spoil like we're dealing with a company that, deals in collagen and when something spits on one of those tankers out in the middle of the ocean for too long when it arrives in the warehouse, it's past its fresh state so you've just lost all that inventory so each client is unique, but with this kind of broad scope of things that we can help them with and we can help audit the business and hopefully help them transcend whatever's keeping them from moving to that next 10 and 20 and 30 million dollars. Jason: [34:59] Very interesting so going back to our earlier conversation this is sort of a way for other young young Brands to leverage all the expertise and skills you guys have have built-in staying on top of this ecosystem. Eric: [35:14] Exactly it's an opportunity for us to take what we've learned and apply it to that young brand I couldn't have said it better myself. Jason: [35:22] Yeah and it at this point is ocean Wing primarily focused with Amazon distribution or would they also leverage all the other distribution channels that you guys have expanded into. Eric: [35:36] Yeah I mean I think I think our sweet spot is definitely FBA so specifically Amazon. That is not to say that we can't help them with other things like supply chain and Logistics but for us, it's a recipe and you know where we've had our success with the clients have come in or people that have been focused on Amazon and then we can kind of look at what they're doing and we can evolve the recipe a little bit, and and get it all the ingredients in place and help them be successful because they all work together, so but I would say Amazon is definitely our primary focus right now at least dealing with businesses that are on Amazon that isn't to say that these businesses are you solely focused Amazon because they're not but Amazon is a key Channel especially if they're going globally and that's where we come in. Jason: [36:31] Got it and obviously over the last year there's kind of been a lot of Buzz around these I'll call them FB a roll ups where you know these, these companies have raised a bunch of money and they go out and acquire Brands and aggregate them and try to help them with their Amazon presents and we you know we've followed thrash Co and perch and, and all of those is, is this kind of your version of that do you see your value prop being different than those other companies or is it just that you have. Sort of more experience and and product scale than some of these companies. Eric: [37:05] How to say this without sounding like it like it's not a jerk but the again we this is what we do, this is how we built our business so we can take. The lessons learned the hard ones too and we can apply it to our clients and I think that alone is super unique that we're a company that's already done this and you know in spades, and now we can apply those learnings to irregular company the other part of it is that most consultancies are focused on Consulting, and but we're a consultant that actually you know rolls up our sleeves and gets into the nitty-gritty of the business and helps and and and that's really depending on the level of the contract or the engagement but you're not only dealing company that can come in and, say some pretty words and show you a powerpoint of what you should be doing, but you know we've already done it and we can roll up our sleeves and get deep in there with you and help you do it or do it. And then that last part in terms of supply chain and and Logistics and you know dealing with manufacturers around the world or suppliers and stuff I think that's a definitely a secret sauce because of our relationships. In China and around the world that we can bring to bear that others can't. Scot: [38:23] So I'd be remiss as the entrepreneur on the show if I noticed in your bio on LinkedIn you have written a book and it's very much in my wheelhouse it's called get funded the startup entrepreneurs guide to seriously successful fundraising I wish I'd had this 20 years ago but I'm glad it exists now tell us tell us about this book and how it came to be. Eric: [38:46] Well my writing partner John Biggs is a little bit of a media icon we've known each other for I think I took them on a media tour maybe 12 13 years ago and. [38:58] We just became very good friends and our families have subsequently traveled the world with each other and we just kind of dig each other and we both have the same kind of sense of humor and sensibilities. [39:10] A couple of years ago he reached out to me that he had been approached by McGraw-Hill to write this book, and thought that I could help provide sort of the second part of the book so the book is broken out into two parts one is is about financing but written in such a way that whether you're trying to develop a taco truck, or you know a retail store or something else what are the different options out there from let's say SBA Loans to even using cryptocurrency, 22 you know set up fundraising all the way down to the meetings and how you value the company how do you pitch people, how do you put presentations together, so very very very this is not this is for the person that was really starting out with very limited knowledge, on the fundraising process and how do you present yourself at the end of the day so John really focus more on the fundraising side and I focus more on the presentation skills, how to pitch how to talk how to prepare how to answer questions the technical aspects of doing a presentation when everything goes wrong. Obviously if I could if I could rewrite a whole section on this now since the book was published last year in September I probably be a whole section on how to pitch during covid because that was. [40:35] That was definitely not it was not a reality when we were writing the book but it was definitely a reality by the time the book was published and I hope and we've heard, the people the industry has adapted that investors and seed funders and people are hard at work and investing but, for the person that might not have the background in this I still think the book for evaluating your company, getting all your ducks in a row building your presentations and how to pitch is still very valuable. Scot: [41:12] Very cool yet this kind of books I think they're kind of Evergreen and it's kind of a little snowball kind of effort so be patient it'll it'll catch up. Jason: [41:22] I am curious it does feel like there's a little bit of a disruption in the fundraising World why you know there for a long time there's this kind of traditional VC path, and obviously there's still a lot of money that flows through that path but I feel like the the role of Angel Investors and sort of other untraditional fundraising. Is becoming more common than it used to be like you guys try to cover that those kind of approaches in the book as well or is it mostly focused on on moving through Sandhill Road. Eric: [41:52] Well it's we wanted it in some ways to be the antithesis of Silicon Valley so for those people that are going down that road you know inevitably they're going to partner up. Let's say at the app generation. They're going to partner up and kind of go down that road our book really tries to focus everything from the pros and cons of using your own credit card friends and family, crowdfunding as I said SBA Loans if you're a minority or women owned business looking at options they're looking at. Prices and options like through FedEx has a great program for entrepreneurs and trying to cover the whole gamut, so we could make fundraising more reasonable and open to the entrepreneur is opposed to. Yeah the tech bro going to Silicon Valley and looking for for someone's bill. Scot: [42:45] Awesome I had one follow-up on Ocean we just took kind of clarify it for listeners you guys are your kind of more in the agency side of things you're not going out there and finding, new brands that are also born on Amazon and acquiring of in kind of rolling them up like the thrashes of the world is do I have that right. Eric: [43:04] We're talking about anchor Innovations right. Scot: [43:07] Yeah the ocean Wing synchronization set. Eric: [43:12] Well on the ocean on the ocean Wing side it's definitely consultative but I mean those things are going to evolve as the business comes in and I don't know if you mean like Financial stakes and the business and stuff but. I mean who knows right if if something came along that looked amazing and a great partnership I'm sure we would consider that. On the anchor Innovation side I think you'll be seeing and you know in the future probably incubator initiatives and things like that, it would be to me it would be a personally exciting to get involved in as seeking out and finding you know exciting. Developers all around the world we tend to be very myopic here and look at the United States as being, where everything's happening and I'd say you know maybe from apps and things like that might be true but when you're looking at Innovation and medicine or innovation and Robotics or innovation and Farm Technology or whatever, you really have to look outside and around the world and you're going to find that Innovation and really unique an unassuming places. So is is if we do get into more ink you know becoming more of a global incubator, I would imagine in our direction would be all over the place and looking in places like India and Africa and you know wherever cool things are being developed. Scot: [44:34] Cool so no almost boundless growth opportunities for you guys it sounds like an exciting time. Jason: [44:44] Well this is certainly going to be a exciting and different holiday season and this is going to be a great place to leave this conversation because it is happen again we've Perfectly Used up our allotted time, But Eric we really appreciate your time and enjoyed hearing about anchoring some of the exciting new initiatives there. Eric: [45:05] Thanks God and thanks Jason. Scot: [45:07] Yeah if anyone wanted to follow you or you are you big on Tick-Tock or I said it's usually or Twitter or LinkedIn or you publish their and then where should they go for some good the latest Anchor Information. Eric: [45:22] Someone can connect with me on LinkedIn my focus to be quite Frank with you as I'm So Married to my work as I tend to focus my communication through work as opposed to myself. I think it's one of those things when you work in Communications you got to be careful about what use you say. So mostly I'm just talking about my company in the things that we do. Jason: [45:49] Awesome well we will put a link to your LinkedIn profile in there and certainly some links to Anchor and until next time happy commercing!

Slideshow for this message is available Introduction John 13:1-14:7 Latency is the gap that exists between the reality and the moment you are able to perceive that reality. So for example, we all know that the sun is a long ways away. It's about 93M miles away which means that if the sun somehow disappeared instantly it would take about 8 minutes for that light to reach us to realize it. There would be 8 minutes of latency between the reality and the perception of reality. In the medical field there are latent diseases. Virus' can exists in the tissues but are undetectable and produce no symptoms. And then suddenly, under the right conditions, those virus' flare up. It was there all along but was latent because it wasn't detectable. Well today we are going to talk about a spiritual disease that lies latent in the human heart. It lies dormant in our soul. All of us, like Judas, like Peter, are capable of abandoning and forsaking Jesus Christ. Buried in the soft tissue of the soul is this latent spiritual disease where we are tempted to sell Jesus off if he stops being profitable to us. Under the right conditions, we are all capable of this. We all have this dark disease hidden somewhere in our hearts. Now in the text we see this latent disease expressed in Judas and Peter. Both of them posses latent unbelief, latent fear, latent cowardice, latent disloyalty, latent betrayal, latent denial, latent darkness. And both of them were put into pressure cooker situations where that disease of darkness flared up. Their crime against Christ was very similar. Jesus predicted both Peter's and Judas' acts. Judas betrayed Jesus. That same night, Peter denied Christ three times. So what's the difference between Judas and Peter? Both were religious. Both followed Jesus. Both heard amazing preaching. Both saw miracles. Both were treated kindly. What's the difference? Ultimately, everything. Of Judas, Jesus says, “It would be better if he had never been born. Woe to the man by whom the son of man is betrayed.” Of Peter, “Upon this rock I will build my church.” Jesus turned to Judas and gave him the morsel and said, “What you do, do quickly” and in that moment Satan entered Judas. Jesus turned to Peter and said to him, “Satan demanded to sift you like wheat but I have prayed that your faith may not fail.” After Judas betrayed Judas he hung himself in outer darkness. After Peter denied Jesus he wept and was restored back into fellowship with the light of the world. The same disease was latent in both them. What's the difference? What caused one to ultimately apostatize and the other repent? Am I more like Judas or Peter? Could you ask a more important question? So today we are going to look at the anatomy of that darkness that shadows every human heart. We are going to look at what key difference causes one person to go away to eternal perdition and another to go away to eternal life. We are going to perform a biopsy on Judas and a biopsy on Peter and see if we can't see the spiritual difference between the two. There's a point in every medical condition where the disease is first detected. It may have been there for weeks or months or even years, but then the doctor detects it and you hear the news. That's what happens first in the passage. While at that meal, Jesus announces there's a darkness lurking. The Presence of Betrayal Jesus' detects the disease. Now notice that the actual diagnosis comes via a troubled Spirit. It's a strong word in the Greek. It's the same word used to describe Zechariah's reaction when he was in the temple and saw the angel of the Lord. He was deeply troubled. It's the same word used to describe Herod when the Magi reported that there was a little boy born who is called, 'King of the Jews.' As Jesus contemplated this betrayal he was deeply troubled. The fact that Jesus was deeply troubled tells us a lot about how Jesus treated Judas. Why? Betrayal can only happen once a person has chosen to trust and love. The checkout clerk at Walmart can't betray you. There's no established trust or love or loyalty. A thief can't betray you. You don't trust thieves. You expect them to hurt you. The more you let a person in, the deeper the hurt can go. That's why your spouse can deeply betray you. Your children can betray you. Your best friends can betray you. Why? Because you've let them in. You've invested. You've decided to be loyal to them and not others. You've sacrificed. You love them at great cost to self and you sure would hope that this sort of love would be reciprocated. And not only do they not reciprocate, they sell you off for the sake of their own profit. Jesus was deeply troubled which means Jesus was invested. One of you will betray me. So Jesus diagnoses the disease in Judas. Am I Capable of It? But in an indirect way, we see that the question itself diagnosis the disease in the rest of the disciples as well. Now here's what I mean. We are severely disadvantaged since we all know how the story ends. Judas is the bad guy. We know he's the betrayer. He's obtained such a bad reputation that even people who are not religious and have very little understanding of the Bible, know how this story ends. **No mother proudly holds up their baby, “Here's my son!** Isn't he cute? We've named him Judas.” The name is synonymous with back-stabber. In Dante's inferno, Judas is in the deepest pit of hell. You can't get worse than this guy. And so when Jesus said, “One of you will betray me,” you would certainly think, given that kind of evil and wickedness latent in the heart of the betrayer, certainly all eyes would have turned to Judas and they all would have said, “Jesus we all know who you are talking about. Let's stop beating around the bush; can we stop speaking in ambiguous pronouns. We all know its Judas.” But that's not their reaction at all. It's shocking how clueless they were. And here's the scary part. Here's the insidiousness nature of the sin of apostasy. Even something as serious as the sin of Judas is undetectable by his close friends. Jesus talks about being aware of wolves among sheep. And you've probably seen really cheesy caricatures of this. Something like this. Okay, which one is Judas. But that's not the idea at all. This is the idea. Which one is Judas? And you want to know why it's so hard to detect in Judas? Because again, the same thing exists in all of us. Latent in our heart is the same weakness as Judas. The same darkness exists in all of us, that's why he looks so familiar. You see, I think it's pretty easy to make the case that Judas thought something every single disciple had to be thinking. It's near the end of the week. Jesus, almost a week ago, rode into Jerusalem on a donkey and accepted the praise of the crowds. Hail, king Jesus. KING! But now he's doing nothing. He's not rallying the troops or making any battle plans. The crowds are growing impatient and the overall tone is shifting. Jesus is now talking openly about his death and the fact that they will be persecuted because of their association with him. And perhaps they are beginning to think, “I don't want to be aboard a sinking ship.” Jesus doesn't control a military force. The imperial Roman army can put him down in a micro-second. It is just a matter of time. Rome crushes pretender kings. That's what the cross was invented to do. What occurred to Judas must have occurred to every one of them. They knew they were capable of it. *That's why they looked around and said, “Is it me?* Could it be? I know it's in me.” The reason Judas looks so similar to the rest of the disciples is because, in one sense he's just like them. He's just like the rest of us. Have you ever had a chance to share Christ in your workplace. It was like the perfect opportunity. The subject of religion came up and they turned to you, “What do you think?” The opportunity couldn't be more perfect and you stood there mute as donkey. That's the sin of Judas. Have you ever sat down in a coffee shop and you hear someone talk negatively of religion and you hide your Bible? Have you ever chosen not to pray in public out of fear of being ridiculed? That's the sin of Judas. Judas' sin was selling Jesus. If it profits me, I'll follow. But the second it costs me a dime, I'm selling him off like a dirty stock. If I can get some power, sure. I'll follow. If I can dip my hand into that money bag. Maybe a little fame through association? Sure, I'll follow. But if cost me a dime, I'm out of here. I have no loyalties. Anyone who knows their own heart knows there is a part of us that wants to sell off Jesus when it starts costing. There are a lot of benefits to being a Christian in America which means there are potentially a lot of Judas' in the room. Now, even though the root sin exists in all of us, what's the diagnosis. ONE of you will betray me. Only one. There is something very different about Judas. What is it? We are going to see that next. It's truly amazing. Here's where we see the cause of the terminal disease that exists in Judas alone. Now you might think, ah, there it is. The cause of the betrayal was Satan. Satan entered into Judas. That makes sense. Nope. That's not right. That's now what causes the betrayal. Look closer. Peter motions to John to ask Jesus who the betrayer is. And Jesus answers John by giving him an identifier. It's the one to whom I give the morsel of food. We are not familiar with this custom but fundamentally this is clearly an act of kindness and love. They are sitting around a meal with a lamb. In just a few days, we are all going to be sitting around a meal with a turkey. And of course when you cut up the bird, there's some cuts that are better than others. Right? Everybody prefers certain cuts. So what Jesus was doing here was picking out a choice cut and giving it to Judas. This would be the same kindness you might experience if you attended a thanksgiving feast and the host asks you to step up to the turkey which was coming straight out of the oven. He look you in the eye and carves off the nicest piece of meat and its steaming, it's moist, and he put it onto your plate. That was nice of you! Socially it was a kind gesture. The gesture itself is pure kindness. You want to know the difference between Judas and Peter? You want to know what it is that causes the latent disease of forsaking Jesus to metastasize into betrayal and apostasy? You want to know what sends Judas to hell and Peter to heaven? It's not Satan. It's the way they receive grace. What do you do when grace comes your way? When Jesus reaches across the table and extends humbling grace, what do you do with it? Does that warmth harden you or soften you? Does that warmth melt your unbelief or compact your rebellion. Judas had been in the presence of pure love for 3.5 years. Jesus has just washed his feet which everyone would have interpreted as loving. He is just been given this morsel which is an act of kindness. And he's presented with this stark choice: rush forward and proceed with his shameful plan or repent and beg for forgiveness. Ironically, it is the kindness of Jesus that seals his fate. It's the grace offered to him that seals his judgment. This is the climax of one of the great themes in the book of John. What are you going to do with this white-hot brilliant, glorious ember of grace? What are you going to do with Jesus Christ? And all through the book, there's this sifting that has been happening. Some fall on their faces to worship. Others pick up stones to stone him. So this final gesture of affection and grace toward Judas is the straw that breaks the camel's back and now the the final surrender of Judas to the power of darkness is complete. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. Judas received the sop but not the love. Seeing he did not see. Hearing he did not hear. Instead of it breaking him and urging him to repentance, it hardened his resolve. It's at that point Satan entered into him. And then John in his beautiful literary style says simply, “It was night.” That statement penetrates three levels deep. First, of course, it was actually night. But second, there's a spiritual dimension to that moment as well. Judas, as he walks away into the night chewing that morsel handed to him by the son of God, thrusts himself into the inky, black, awful darkness of total separation from God. The logical progression of inviting increasing darkness into ones life culminates in final and complete outer darkness and the summoning of Satan himself. Judas was swallowed up by darkness itself. It was night. But there's a third level. This night that swallowed Judas would now swallow Jesus as his hour of darkness was now upon him. For Jesus, it was night. If Judas is going into the night, Jesus is going into the light. Yes, Jesus was heading into the night but it was through that night that he would then come into the light. Here we have this incredible piece of theology. We get a deep insight into the trinity here. According to this verse, how is God glorified? By Jesus Christ. And how is Jesus Christ glorified? By the Father. It is the work of the father that exalts the Son and it is the work of the Son that exalts the father. Christ delights in the father and the father delights in the son. There is this beautiful interchange in the trinity. You want to know why marriage blossoms and blooms when the husband delights in and glorifies and serves his wife and when in turn the wife delights in and glorifies and serves her husband? Because all human relationships are patterned after the way God himself operates. To receive the love of God is the opposite of apostasy. Why? Because receiving the love of God fuels your love back to him. When Judas refused and deflected the love of God, the light of his soul went out. Conversely as Jesus receives the love of God, he turns that love right back around to the father and there's so much of it, it just spills out into all his relationships. That's exactly what he intends us to do. Jesus was the ultimate example of this. If the refusal of love is the cause of betrayal then receiving of love is the andedote to betrayal. Why? Because when we receive the love of God, our souls are flooded with light and betrayal is not possible. Just as I have loved you, you love others. Do you see where the power comes from? From receiving the love. What's the cure to the latent disease of denying Jesus in your soul? Receive the love of God. Receive his grace. Receive his mercy. To receive love is to illuminate and cast out the darkness of apostasy. The more you see how beautiful the love of God is, the more you will cling and the less you will question and doubt. And since the love of God is endless, the apostasy-eliminating resources are endless as well. The darkness of apostasy is the refusal to believe that God really loves you. That's what Judas did. He developed in his mind a world in which Jesus was self-serving, and did not love him. It was that suspicion that ultimately crushed him. If these bad things are happening to me, it must be because he doesn't love me. No you receive his love. These difficult things are because he loves you. These good things are not given with ulterior motives. He doesn't give you gifts expecting you to repay him. He loves you. He who did not spare his own Son, how will he not along with him, freely give you all things. Receiving God's love is what characterizes every true believer. Do you notice how John references himself in the book. He calls himself the one who Jesus loved. I used to read that and think, “Well that's arrogant.” As if he's making the claim that Jesus loved him more than the others. But that's not the idea at all. It's a statement of marvel. Can you believe it? The one Jesus loved? The one Jesus extended love toward who didn't deserve it. And what happened? John received that love and it transformed him. It's what now identifies me. I don't even want you to know my name. I just want you to know that I am loved by Jesus. I am bearing testimony to the fact that being loved by Jesus is all that matters. Receiving the love of God is the most powerful force for change on earth. It will ultimately bring about complete Utopia. But it's really hard to do. What do you mean it's hard to do? Most of us think, oh yeah, I have totally accepted the love of God. What's hard about that? Most of think we are pretty bullet-proof in that regard. God loves me and I love him. For sure. We are good. Right? And that's our penultimate point. The Latency of Betrayal Remember latency is the lapse between the reality and the ability to detect the reality. Earlier in the passage, when Jesus announces this grand betrayal Peter motions to John, "find out who it is?" And you could almost imagine Peter finding out and then wiping his brow. Oh that's wonderful. It's not me. And then almost immediately that nervous anxiety turns to smugness. And it emboldens him to make great claims. It's almost like subconsciously he knows its there and he says really strong statements to convince himself it's not. He's speaking with assurance to compensate for his growing insecurity. He starts talking brashly to assure himself that he's millions of miles away from this sort of sickness. I'm not sick like that man. Jesus I love you. I'll serve you to the end. If the Roman guards come to try to take you away, I'll start chopping off ears and noses and heads. “I will lay down my life for you!” Jesus just looks at him and I can imagine him just staring right into his eyes and that gaze just penetrates clean into the center of his soul. And after deep pause he just shatters that confidence, “Will you lay down your life for me?” The disease was hiding latent in Peter's soul. All it takes is a little pressure, a little threat, and all of the sudden the white hot loyalty fades away. All of the sudden that fierce allegiance and devotion turns into a back-peddling, panic, and pathetic cowardice. Oh our poor, weak little souls. How many of us have failed in some way? Sinned and been ashamed? Outbursts of anger, lusting hearts, pornography, substance abuse, consumed by fear, consumed by insecurity. And you realize the effect it's having on those around you. You realize how damaging it is. You are so angry at yourself. But then you have this experience. Maybe you listen to a sermon or you have a moment of clarity while reading your Bible. And it's like this eureka moment. You're just so enraptured with God and his truth and the beauty of his plan. And you tell others. And you feel so bulletproof. I'll never do that again. I'm cured. I'm fixed. I'm absolutely free. I'll never sin like that again. I have perfect clarity, now. My life is changed. It's clear as a bell. And you find yourself just sailing on some spiritual cloud. And everything seems so clear. I'm an oak. A mighty fortress is my soul. 1 Corinthians 10:12, “Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall.” You're an oak, huh? Satan has demanded to sift you like wheat. Just one little puff and you will snap in half. However strong you are, you are no match for Satan. Zero. He can crush you with his little finger. You ought be trembling with distress not swaggering and beating your chest. We are so confident when we should be so quiet. Given our track record, we should all be self-suspecting, bothered, agitated, uneasy, afraid, apprehensive, anxious and troubled. Every time I have the thought I got this, there ought to be an antiphonal voice in your head that retorts, “No you don't” So what's our hope? Where do we anchor our hope that we won't just crash and burn like Judas. This can create a lot of fear. This can create a ton of worry and anxiety. Well, there is an ultimate cure. On the one hand, Jesus introduces all this uncertainty into the equation which doesn't seem very necessary. Why are you doing this, Jesus? Why are you kicking up clouds of doubt? Here's the answer: because it's true. We are weak. We are fickle. WE are prone to reject the grace of God. We are spineless creatures. We do have a darkness in our heart. He's giving us a cold, hard dose of reality. It's no fun facing into that. All of the sudden our perception of who we are and the reality of who we are come crashing together. But then out comes the hope. The incredible hope, the entire point of the book of John, once again comes leaping off the page. And here's just a sneak preview into next week. Is your heart troubled based on this disconcerting news? What's the solution? What's the simple answer to the fickleness of our hearts? Believe in Jesus. You see, this, this is ultimately what separated Judas from Peter. Peter who do you say that I am? You are the Christ the Son of the Living God. And it is that confession that secures Peter all the way to the end. It is that confession that merits the unbelievable declaration, "Upon this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it." I believe Jesus is God. I believe that Jesus saved me from my sins. It is this simple statement that secures you from all the evil that could come at you even if the gates of hell were propped wide open in your face. Why because it is ultimately Jesus Christ who is protecting you. You see there is a doctrine in theology called the ‘perseverance of the saints.' And what this doctrine says is that God's got you. And once he's got you, he will never let go. Once your saved, you can't lose that salvation. Sure, you may let go of your grip of him but he will never let go of his grip of you. The term ‘perseverance of the saints' is a little misleading because it sounds like the saints are the ones who are persevering. It might be better named, "Preservation of the Saints." All those who are ‘in Christ' are now preserved by Christ. Just like being in the freezer, preserves the food. It's not like the food preserves itself. It's the preserving power of the environment in which the food is placed. When we are in Christ we are preserved. Yes, on our own, that darkness would overtake us. On our own, it would overcome us and we would rot away like Judas. On our own our, that latent disease would metastasize and our hearts would decay and deteriorate and become putrid and we would decay. That's why Jesus solution to all this fear and anxiety. Believe in me. Place yourself into me. Notice what Jesus doesn't say. He doesn't simply hope that Peter will be able to resist Satan, or that he will return, or that he will be able to strengthen the brothers. He's 100 percent certain that he will be restored. Why? Because he is in Christ. Listen, if you find yourself today, needing Christ in this way, there will be team up here after the service that would love to pray for you. Christ Jesus is our Hope. And we are going to sing that right now. Jesus Christ, our living hope. Let's lift our voices, lift our hands. Right now would be the appropriate time to just let your joy run free.

Episode 66 continues  the story of the autopsy.  This episode  discusses the background of the three pathologists charged with performing the  autopsy and the  impact of the secrecy clause that was signed by all of those present that night.  We hear directly from  Lieutenant Lipsey  and gain a glimpse of some of the events that night in the morgue as they completed the autopsy and readied the president's body afterward. More facts and their  implications for the credibility of the Warren Commission Report and the lone gunman theory.  Join us in this fourth  episode  and in a whole series of episodes about the fantastic goings on that encompass this part of the JFK story. There is  more direct forensics to come in this series of  forensics episodes.  Stay tuned,  and eventually we'll explore  more of the physical evidence involving use and ownership of the   Mannlicher Carcano rifle and  evidence  recovered from the Presidential limousine, as well as damage done to the vehicle.  Our episodes have now begun  to explore  an array of matters that  dive into a deeper  darkness  related to what  went on that day in Dallas and in the  period before and after the assassination.  Matters   that possibly point  to a  wider  and more sinister  plot to kill the president and  that clearly call into question the theory that there was a  lone assassin.   Complex cases without  an eyewitness that can actually identify the shooter make the forensic and circumstantial evidence that much more important.  Ironically, problems abound with much of the evidence in this case. Evidence that is complex, incomplete and sometimes conflicting. Even as early as 1964, rumors and serious concerns over  the lone gunman theory and the evidence that might contravene it,  were becoming a major concern for the government and the commission. Conspiracy theories were contrary to the government's stated narrative from the very beginning. Stay tuned as there are many more episodes to come!This series comprehensively explores the major facts,  themes, and  events leading up to the assassination in Dealey Plaza and the equally gripping stories surrounding the subsequent investigation. We  review  key elements of the Warren Commission Report , and the role of the CIA and FBI. We explore the  possible involvement of the Mafia in the murder and the review of that topic by the government's House Select Committee on Assassinations in the 1970's. We explore the Jim Garrison investigation and the work of other key figures such as Mark Lane and others. Learn more about Lee Harvey Oswald the suspected killer and Jack Ruby the distraught Dallas night club owner with underworld ties and the man that killed Oswald as a national TV audience was watching.  Stay with us as we take you through the facts and theories in bite sized discussions that are designed to educate, and inform as well as entertain the audience. This  real life story is more fascinating than fiction. No matter whether you are a serious researcher or a casual student, you will enjoy the fact filled narrative and story as  we relive one of the most shocking moments in American History. An event that changed the nation and changed the world forever.

Judith Shapiro and John-Andrew McNeish's book Our Extractive Age: Expressions of Violence and Resistance (Routledge, 2021) emphasizes how the spectrum of violence associated with natural resource extraction permeates contemporary collective life. Chronicling the increasing rates of brutal suppression of local environmental and labor activists in rural and urban sites of extraction, this volume also foregrounds related violence in areas we might not expect, such as infrastructural developments, protected areas for nature conservation, and even geoengineering in the name of carbon mitigation. Contributors argue that extractive violence is not an accident or side effect, but rather a core logic of the 21st Century planetary experience. Acknowledgement is made not only of the visible violence involved in the securitization of extractive enclaves, but also of the symbolic and structural violence that the governance, economics, and governmentality of extraction have produced. Extractive violence is shown not only to be a spectacular event, but an extended dynamic that can be silent, invisible, and gradual. The volume also recognizes that much of the new violence of extraction has become cloaked in the discourse of "green development," "green building," and efforts to mitigate the planetary environmental crisis through totalizing technologies. Ironically, green technologies and other contemporary efforts to tackle environmental ills often themselves depend on the continuance of social exploitation and the contaminating practices of non-renewable extraction. But as this volume shows, resistance is also as multi-scalar and heterogeneous as the violence it inspires.

If you've spent any time listening to me, you know that I don't suffer ignorance gladly, and perhaps only when it is combined with arrogance does it become more reprehensible. A confident person is able to form an opinion, calmly make a case for it using facts, logic, and reason, and listen intently to those who are willing and interested in doing the same. An arrogant person forms an opinion first and then seeks out those who agree with his conclusion to bolster his claims, without ever checking the veracity of what he's being told or considering the motives of the speaker he has sought for validation. From there, armed with only the information he wants to believe, and with no interest or desire in hearing alternative views, he loudly repeats whatever surface-level talking points he can remember, and then quickly tries to demean or personally attack anyone who suggests there might be more to consider. It is the latter group that populates, permeates, and for the most part, dominates society today, and certainly, this group controls entirely both sides of the media and social media as well. Both sides of the political and social aisle have adopted the same tactics; find out first what their tribe thinks, and then formulate whatever story you have to in order to defend the thinking of your tribe. Using the same person as the obvious example would be as follows: If Donald Trump said it, then, as far as the right tribe is concerned it is true and/or it should be, so we shall support it. Meanwhile, the far left tribe is immediately certain that it is both a lie and it is dangerous and must be objected to. Clearly, this is ludicrous. Trump said and did a lot of great things, while also saying and doing a lot of very stupid and wrong things. At this point, I have lost 90% of you, and that's the problem. The idea that I suggested that Trump did anything well, made half of you laugh and scoff, and the idea that I posited his mistakes and blunders means I have no idea what I am talking about…and neither side has any interest in actually hearing the answer to the question “like what?” Some might scream it, but when an answer is presented, it is met with derision, personal attacks, and accusations that factual statements are lies. This is playing out before our eyes in the trial of Kyle Rittenhouse, a man who is, depending on your tribe, either a racist, white supremacist, far-right extremist murderer, or an altruistic young man that we need more of in America who was just trying to help his community and, in the process was attacked and became the victim who ultimately prevailed through self-defense. Neither is close to true, and nobody cares. As the trial of Rittenhouse comes to a close, an endless parade of morons bombard the airwaves and social media with half-truths and provably untrue “explanations” as to why the trial is, or isn't going their tribe's way. My current favorites are pro-Rittenhouse people who offer up one sentence hot takes like… “looks like he's going to walk…what do you say now?” Right behind them are anti-Rittenhouse folks who have formed a conspiracy theory cocoon around themselves by making the judge the villain, and a racist himself. Of course, most of the people offering up these opinions and explanations have not actually watched the trial nor read the transcripts, they're just repeating what Tucker Carlson or the ladies from “The View,” tell them is happening. I, on the other hand, have watched AND read every single minute, not just from the trial, but also, all of the pre-trial motions and decisions, and have absolutely no doubt about the events that transpired last summer, who is at fault, who is to blame, and what the legal ramifications will and should be. I am also blessed to have a deep understanding of how the law works, and a calm acceptance that the American justice system, like the nation itself, is the greatest on Earth, while also being far from perfect. Rittenhouse was allowed by the judge to present a case of self-defense, which, under Wisconsin law, means that the prosecution must show either that he did not fear for his life (impossible under the circumstances) or that he provoked the attacks which led him to have to defend himself. The latter was the obvious path, and the prosecution, led by Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger, botched it entirely. Binger, for the record, is the worst prosecutor I have ever seen in my life. Atrocious does not begin to properly describe how bad he is at his job, based on this trial. https://courses.lumenlearning.com/suny-criminallaw/chapter/5-2-self-defense/ It should have been quite easy to show that Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time, had absolutely no business being in Kenosha in the wake of the Jacob Blake riots, other than to incite, provoke, and, if he was lucky, maybe kill a few people. It was proven under oath, contrary to the narrative we've been told, that he had not been asked, nor even welcomed to protect property, specifically, a business known as Car Source. Even if the owners of Car Source HAD asked for a militia to defend their property, it was certainly not Rittenhouse's place to drive from Indiana and then brandish an AR-15, not to mention the fact that he left the property to hunt down…errr…I mean administer medical aid to people, a laughably asinine storyline, which even if true, should have been shot down with a simple “if you hadn't been there in the first place, (a place you didn't belong at all), and if you hadn't left the Car Source property in the second place, you would have never been in fear of your life,” retort. Somehow, prosecutor Binger couldn't land that plane. Unbelievable. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2021/11/09/kyle-rittenhouse-trial-prosecution-rests-defense-opens/6362457001/ It is true that the judge has ruled almost universally in favor of Rittenhouse's team, but to assert that he has made it impossible to convict is ridiculous. While it would have been easier to prove his guilt had the judge allowed evidence to be presented which showed Rittenhouse's clearly racist, violent-prone, and non-remorseful behavior before and after the night in question, it did not make it impossible. Nor does it justify the prosecutor getting scolded and lectured multiple times by the judge for appalling behavior and tactics. Not to mention, they over-reached from the jump by charging him with intentional homicide, forcing them to prove pre-meditation, which they were never going to be able to do, especially after the judge ruled that all previous behaviors were inadmissible. https://apnews.com/article/wisconsin-police-trials-gun-politics-kenosha-8cd887f731ace320bf945f9524ceb252 On the other side, I am not about to leap aboard the train of celebrities and athletes claiming that Rittenhouse was faking when he broke down on the witness stand last week, practically appearing to hyper-ventilate. Calling someone a liar is never an intelligent tactic when trying to make a point or win an argument. Here is what is almost certainly going to happen this week: Rittenhouse will be found not guilty on all of the charges that really matter. Ironically, he probably will be found guilty of illegal possession of a firearm, which under Wisconsin law actually voids your right to self-defense. But that doesn't mean that the jury has to then convict him on the greater charges, and I don't believe they will. It may end in a hung jury, but either way, Rittenhouse will be free by week's end. Riots will erupt both in Wisconsin and across the country, and when they do, look for myriad Rittenhouse copycats, emboldened by the verdict, to patrol the streets looking for hoodlums who will also be well-armed as a result of the decision of the jury. More killing will ensue. Rittenhouse, himself, will head one of two directions; he may become the next George Zimmerman; a hero for the right-wing until he does so many embarrassing things that he can no longer be defended, or he may wind up in congress alongside Marjorie Taylor Greene and other lunatics that are driving the Republican Party into the same ditch that Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and her “squad” are sending the Democrats. This congressional stint of Rittenhouse's will, of course, come after he does an hour-long sit down with Tucker Carlson and becomes a Fox News Contributor. https://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/trayvon-martin-george-zimmerman/ President Biden will fail miserably in addressing this properly as he continues his march towards being the most unpopular President in American history, which seems to be his goal. Conservatives, who like to paint themselves as aligned with law and order, will do as they did after the January 6 capitol insurrection and completely bail on and ignore law and order and align themselves with Rittenhouse, a vigilante who is aligned with the Proud Boys. This brings us back to the consistent evolution of both political parties and their followers; ignore your core values when it is more important to find a way to justify the behavior and outcome that you desire. So, when someone says, “looks like he's going to walk…what do you say now?” I say this: O.J. walked too, and he should have based on the trial. Again, if you actually followed it, they absolutely did not prove, beyond a reasonable doubt, Simpson's guilt. But no one with sense believes for one minute that he did not kill Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman. Rittenhouse is a murderer. He is not to be revered he is to be disgusted, and he certainly is not “just a dumb kid.” His resume is already quite full of all of the evidence we need to know what a cretin he is, and the fact that people are proudly aligning themselves with him is beyond disgusting…but then again, so is the society in general at this point. https://www.nytimes.com/article/kyle-rittenhouse-shooting-timeline.htmlhttps://www.reuters.com/world/us/how-kyle-rittenhouse-went-cleaning-graffiti-shooting-3-people-2021-11-11/https://www.foxnews.com/media/kyle-rittenhouse-convicted-media-kenosha-narrative-kurtz-media-buzz See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

We All Need a Dose of Comfort with Kip Baldwin and Evan Hirsch Description: Comfort You is a song, a video, and an inspiration for a global movement for our human family to connect in a new way. Soul Twin Messiah, who wrote and recorded the song, have planted the seed and created the hashtag #comfortyou as a gathering place for all who feel attracted to the idea that offering comfort, support, and LOVE to one another is a worthy step on our journey toward creating peace in the world. The more united we become, the more we can heal past damage and trauma, and move forward together in harmony as we create a world in which we are all better supported. This will give us the bandwidth to make significant enough change happen to be on the road to recovery for ourselves, our planet, and all of the other forms of life with whom we share this sacred home.   As we witness the dramatic transformation from the current chapter in our collective story of humanity - which is largely rooted in fear - to one of LOVE, it is impossible to ignore the fact that (as futurist Barbara Marx Hubbard put it) our crisis is a birth. Birthing can be painful, and change can be a challenging thing to accept. We see symptoms of the transition all over the place. Systems don't function smoothly, customer service has become a rare thing to find, technology foils us constantly, business just keeps on growing, and the bulk of money and power are being funneled to a very select few, while so many humans continue to suffer from a lack of resources, support, and influence. To a sensitive person, it can be heartbreaking. We carry around frustration, confusion, and loneliness, which can lead to hopelessness, desperation and isolation, which so many of us are experiencing as we witness and feel empathy for those who are suffering.   Since it feels like none of us are quite sure what will happen next, and so many feel powerless to impact significant change, we need something to bolster our motivation to stay the course for doing the work and helping to accelerate positive transformation. This is why a movement to bring comfort to one another feels vital now if we wish to narrow the growing polarization between us, and build a path to peace and thriving.   Comfort You is here to soothe the tensions of a lifetime of challenges for us all. The song reminds us to give one another the full attention, compassion, and support that we all need. We won't always have answers and solutions, but we will always have LOVE to give. A hug, a sympathetic ear, and our time and attention are valuable things that we have to offer one another in support of healing, growth, and an acceleration to a healthier, more sustainable way to be.   Follow #comfortyou to join the movement and be part of the action. Be among the first to hear the song and see the video once it premieres. And come check out Soul Twin Messiah at soultwinmessiah.love and on all the usual social platforms.   STM Bio   Soul Twin Messiah is an Evolutionary Rock band for the 21st century. Evan Hirsch (The Blue Rocker!) and Kip Baldwin (Oshalla) represent the creative core of the band, and do all of the songwriting as a team. The music ranges from light rock to hard rock, and even metal, with some downright soulful (and even gospel) moments and a few ballads thrown in for the LOVE of it. Call it “neoclassic rock” if you will, and that gives a hint of the groove, but know that the music is so much more than that. Each song is highly thematic, topical, and intended to awaken and inspire people through the universal emotional power of music and the intellectually stimulating content of the lyrics and messaging.   The concept for the band's name was introduced by friend and author Dr. Jamie Turndorf (“Ask Dr. Love” website), who declared founders Kip and Evan “soul twins” while speaking together over the phone for the first time and feeling the almost identical vibration in their voices. The soul twins LOVED that concept and sought to raise it to Infinity! They believe that we all share an even more fraternal and innate connection than that of twins; we are truly one; with one another and the Universe. The name “Messiah” was initially jokingly suggested, but  they quickly realized how profound the idea of Soul Twin Messiah actually was. Not only does it represent the aforementioned universal connection shared by all, but also their mission of promoting the practice of conscious evolution, as it sets us on the path to becoming our own gurus, sages, saviors, messiahs if you will.   STM has recently been working with renowned producer Joel Jaffe to develop and record a number of their songs. Since the core of the band is the duo of Kip and Evan, Joel helped to assemble a group of world class musicians to accompany the recordings. Evan plays all guitars, bass on a few songs, and even drums on one track, as well as sings co-lead on a couple of songs and backgrounds on most. Kip sings lead on all songs, and background on many. These first recordings of eighteen songs are only the beginning, as the guys have so many more waiting to hit the recording studio.    While they did provide a couple of songs for the soundtrack of the S.O.U.L. documentary A World Worth Imagining, Comfort You will be their first official single and debut music video. Head to soultwinmessiah.love  to see and hear more, and be sure to follow them on social media to stay on top of the latest!   Evan Hirsch - The Blue Rocker!   It was obvious to all who knew him at age seven that Evan was massively inspired by rock music, as he used to carry a cassette boombox to school every day and blare rock tunes. Singing, dancing, and spreading the love through music were activities he was clearly born to do, and the rock and roll lifestyle was his destiny.   The evolution of his musical discoveries helped him broadly expand his range of tastes and collect many genres of music to enjoy throughout his life. Initially attracted to the pop of the day, an early babysitter soon blew his mind with classic and hard rock. After moving, a new babysitter talked him into checking out some new wave. He was resistant at first, but soon found himself extremely attracted to that sound and culture. At age 12, he got a Billy Idol haircut, and by high school was full on new wave, goth, etc. Then a friend sold him his first three punk albums, and it changed everything. Something about punk music really resonated with him like none other before (or after). The energy, tempo, and passion attracted him, and he went deep into the scene, including the crossover to metal. Then, hanging out in front of a punk/new wave club at age 15, a new friend introduced him into the fascinating, wide world of the one and only Grateful Dead. He dove deep, and jumped into that late 80's Dead culture, going to many shows around the west coast. A musician friend from work shared with him the rest of the San Francisco psychedelic sounds, all definitely listen-worthy guitar and Hammond B3 organ driven rock. While wakeboarding in Florida in the early 2000's, he was exposed to underground hip hop, and finally felt an appreciation for beat-driven, rap-spoken music as well. After living half a century, these are some of the enduring bands that rank among his lifelong favorites: Rich Kids on LSD, Bad Religion, The Living End, Metallica, Duran Duran, Depeche Mode, The Cure, Grateful Dead, Cadillac Tramps, The More I See, AC/DC, Foghat, Gamma, and UFO.   As for playing instruments, he grew up with a piano in the home, and dabbled in violin and saxophone in elementary school, but it was soon clear that formal music education wasn't the path for him. It wasn't until age 16 that he finally got his first electric guitar from a friend who also taught him those simple power chords to jam along with his favorite punk music of the day. Ironically, after watching his guitar heroes all play Marshall amps, he accidentally bought an Acoustic brand bass amp at the pawn shop. At 21, a coworker sold him his first drum kit, and that became another form of musical expression, including on some recent recordings. And ultimately, it was out of necessity, for demoing his solo tunes, that Evan started playing the bass and keys as well. Now he has even recorded some official bass tracks for STM songs. Evan played guitar in the Band Armagetiton from 2000 - 2006 (RIP Jen Slatten). He uses Gibson, Schecter, and Paul Reed Smith electric guitars and basses, Breedlove and Eastman acoustics, Mesa Boogie amplifiers, the Kemper Profiler, and DW Drums.   Kip Baldwin - Oshallah Kip's first LOVE and lifelong passion in the creative realm has always been music. Early memories include dancing and singing to Nancy Sinatra's These Boots Are Made for Walking for his Great Grandmother Ruby, listening religiously to Casey Kasem's Top 40 on his AM Radio, and pawing through his parents' vinyl collection, which ran the gamut from the rock of Paul Revere and the Raiders, to Marty Robbins' country classic El Paso. In High School Kip joined the choir, did theater, and saw his musical tastes go from the pop of AM radio to the hard rock and heavy metal of FM, with some his favorites being Nazareth and Judas Priest. Kip's current musical fascination is talent shows - like The Voice and America's Got Talent - where he finds constant inspiration from children as young as seven (Angelina Jordan) of whom he could only hope to have half the talent.  In 1985 Kip's passion for music saw him make the move from Camas, WA to San Francisco via semi-truck, knowing no one and with only a quarter to his name. When asked, “Why S.F. and not L.A.?” he often jokes that he came to S.F. looking for the 60s, but was 20 years too late. The ironic thing is that what he found in S.F. was pretty much the same 80s hair band scene that was going on in Hollywood. And while Kip looks back fondly on the musical and performance experience gained with his band King Roach, the scene and the industry left him creatively unfilled, burned out, and with a severe drinking problem. So he made peace with the fact that music did not seem be his career path, but instead just something he did for personal enjoyment. He then set out to find something to fill the hole in his soul that leaving the pursuit of his beloved music behind had caused. He spent the better part of the next decade focusing on local and sustainable foods, and while a worthwhile pursuit for sure, it did little to satisfy his need to create and share. After a near death experience left him with the realization that he either had to find what his purpose was and be happy or find a quicker way out, he quit drinking. This led him to heed the call of the entertainment industry, first as an actor and then ultimately as a producer, with some success co-creating the influential cannabis series Weed Country for the Discovery Network, co-founding the United Filmmakers Association, and starting the Just LOVE Movement (his life's purpose being sharing LOVE). Eventually this led him to co-founding S.O.U.L. Documentary with creative partner Evan Hirsch, after Kip had been recommended as a producer for a Bernie Sanders project for which Evan was looking for help. But it wasn't until a year into doing S.O.U.L. that Kip and Evan - who are both musicians - formed Soul Twin Messiah and began writing songs to perform at the Peace in the Park Festival that S.O.U.L. co-produced with the Brahma Kumari's in the Music Concourse/Band Shell of Golden Gate Park.  Through all of this what Kip has come to realize is that while he and Evan have done so many amazing things in the past six years with S.O.U.L., it was truly Soul Twin Messiah that he and Evan were drawn together by the creative spirit to do. And how could Kip have known when they started S.OU.L. that it would ultimately not only fulfill his musical dreams beyond his wildest imaginings, but also his longing for tribe, and his unable-to-ignore drive to share LOVE… STM PROMOTIONAL LOVE PARADIGM VIDEO LINK: https://youtu.be/rhmJolWeEjY Video Version: https://youtu.be/RZFZtaywwVM Call in and Chat with Dr. Jamie during Live Show with Video Stream: Call 646-558-8656 ID: 8836953587 press #.  To Ask a Question press *9 to raise your hand Tune-in to “Love Never Dies” and discover for yourself why reconnecting and Dialoguing with Your Departed loved ones is the only way to dry your tears and transform your grief to joy!

 In a world, where the midnight train podcast is at the top of the podcast game, one thing has the power to destroy everything they have worked for. This week their world will come crumbling down as everything they've achieved will be tested and possibly destroyed due to the madness that is (dun dun duuuuuuuunnnnn) cursed Movies!!! Tonight on the midnight train we are combining two of our favorite things…. This podcast and lots and lots of beer…YEAH! Oh wait, we do that every week… Oh, that's right, it's this podcast and….moooovies!! But… In true midnight train fashion, we can't just talk about movies…. We're gonna talk about cursed movies!!! That's right we are going to look at movies that for one reason or another have led to tragedy during and after the movies were made! Everything is on the table from health issues like cancer, accidental deaths while filming, people going crazy after filming, and just about everything else you can think of. Should be a fun and creepy ride discussing all these movies with you passengers and, in case you're wondering, yes we're still going to have a movies list at the end.    Ok so let's get into this and see what we have as far as cursed movies!   We're gonna start it with a big one since we just covered the subject matter of the film! The first cursed movie on our list is the exorcist. The filming of THE EXORCIST was done over nine months. The main set, a reproduction of the Georgetown home, was built in a warehouse in New York. During the filming, several curious incidents and accidents took place on the set and plagued those involved with the production. In addition, the budget of the film rose from $5 million to more than twice that amount. Obviously, any film production that lasts for more than a month or so will see its share of accidents and mishaps, but THE EXORCIST seems to have been particularly affected by unforeseeable calamities. Coincidence? Perhaps, but it left the cast and crew rightfully shaken.    The first incident occurred around 2:30 a.m. one Sunday morning when a fire broke out on the set. There was only one security guard at the Ceco 54th Street Studios when the McNeil house set caught fire and burned. The fire was the result of a bad electrical circuit, but it shut down filming for six weeks while the set was reconstructed from scratch. Ironically, as soon as the new set was ready, the sprinkler system broke down, causing an additional two-week delay.    Few of the actors in the film escaped personal troubles during the shoot. Just as Max Von Sydow (who played Father Merrin) touched down in New York to film his first scenes, he received a phone call saying that his brother died unexpectedly in Sweden. Von Sydow himself later became very ill during the filming. Irish actor Jack MacGowran (who played Burke Dennings) died only one week after his character was killed by the demon in the movie. Jason Miller (who played Father Karras) was stunned when his young son, Jordan, was struck down on an empty beach by a motorcyclist who appeared out of nowhere. The boy ALMOST died. THAT'S GOOD NEWS! Ellen Burstyn (who played Chris McNeill) wrenched her back badly during one scene when she was slapped by the possessed girl. The stunt went badly awry and she was laid up in bed for several weeks afterward, causing more delays in the filming. They had a rig attached to her where a guy offscreen would pull a rope that was tied to her to get that “smacked hard as shit and launched across the room” look the director wanted. Apparently, the director didn't like the first take or two and told the guy with the rope to yoke the living piss out of her. He got his shot. She screwed up her back.    In New York, one of the carpenters accidentally cut off his thumb on the set and one of the lighting technicians lost a toe. This was all over the news at the time due to the mixup at the hospital where they put the wrong appendages on the wrong patients. Yep, they switched the toe for the thumb. And if you believed that, well… I'm not sorry even a little bit. Anyway, The exorcist's location trip to Iraq was delayed from the spring, which is relatively cool, to July, the hottest part of the summer, when the temperature rose to 130 degrees and higher. Out of the eighteen-man crew that was sent there, Friedkin lost the services of nine of them, at one time or another, due to dysentery (which is super shitty) or sunstroke. To make matters worse, the bronze statue of the neo-Assyrian winged demon Pazazu, which was packed in a ten-foot crate, got lost in an air shipment from Los Angeles and ended up in Hong Kong, which caused another two-week delay.    "I don't know if it was a jinx, really," actress Ellen Burstyn later said. "But there were some really strange goings-on during the making of the film. We were dealing with some really heavy material and you don't fool around with that kind of material without it manifesting in some way. There were many deaths in the film. Linda's grandfather died, the assistant cameraman's wife had a baby that died, the man who refrigerated the set died, the janitor who took care of the building was shot and killed … I think overall there were nine deaths during the course of the film, which is an incredible amount… it was scary." Unholy shit, batman!   Things got so bad that William Friedkin took some drastic measures. Father Thomas Bermingham, S.J., from the Jesuit community at Fordham University, had been hired as a technical advisor for the film, along with Father John Nicola, who, while not a Jesuit, had been taught by Jesuit theologians at St. Mary of the Lake Seminary in Mundelein, Illinois. Friedkin came to Bermingham and asked him to exorcise the set. The priest was unable to perform an actual exorcism, but he did give a solemn blessing in a ceremony that was attended by everyone then on the set, from Max Von Sydow to the technicians and grips. "Nothing else happened on the set after the blessing,” Bermingham stated, "but around that time, there was a fire in the Jesuit residence set in Georgetown." And while nothing else tragic occurred on the set, strange events and odd coincidences were reported during the post-production work on the film. "There were strange images and visions that showed up on film that were never planned," Friedkin later claimed. "There are double exposures in the little girl's face at the end of one reel that are unbelievable."   As we talked about in previous episodes, The film opened on December 26, 1973, to massive crowds. Within weeks of the first public screenings of the film, stories started to make the rounds that audience members were fainting and vomiting in the theaters. There were also reports of disturbing nightmares and reportedly, several theater ushers had to be placed under a doctor's care, or quit their jobs, after experiencing successive showings of the movie. In numerous cities that were checked after THE EXORCIST had run for several weeks, reporters found that every major hospital had been forced to deal with patients who reported, after seeing the film, severe cases of vomiting and hallucinations. There were also reports of people being carried out of theaters in stretchers. What do you think, passengers? Mere publicity stunts, or was this the real thing?    The info for this cursed movie came from a great article on americanhauntingsink.com check them out!   Next up we're gonna dive into a sweet little movie about a tree, a child's toy, and REAL SKELETONS IN THE SWIMMING POOL! Yep, you guessed it, poltergeist! The curse of Poltergeist spawned many theories about why the movie and its sequels were cursed with so much tragedy, with one suggesting the use of real-life human bones in the original film caused the hauntings.   Actress JoBeth Williams - who played the mother, Diane Freeling - is seen dropping into a pool of skeletons in one spooky scene and she later reveals the bones were real. She told TVLand: "In my innocence and naiveté, I assumed that these were not real skeletons.   "I assumed that they were prop skeletons made out of plastic or rubber . . . I found out, as did the crew, that they were using real skeletons, because it's far too expensive to make fake skeletons out of rubber."   Just four months after the film's release, tragedy struck with actress Dominique Dunne, who played the family's eldest daughter Dana, who became the victim of a grisly murder. On the day before Halloween in 1982, the actress, 22, was strangled by her ex-boyfriend John Thomas Sweeney outside their home in West Hollywood. She survived the attack but was left in a coma. She never regained consciousness and died five days later. Sweeney was later convicted of voluntary manslaughter and spent three and half years of a six-year sentence behind bars for the killing. He changed his name to John Maura so if you want to let him know what a twat he is, I mean… we can't stop you.   In the years after the film's release movie bosses plowed ahead with plans for a sequel and Poltergeist II: The Other Side hit cinemas in 1986. Among the cast was Will Sampson, best known for playing Chief Bromden in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest opposite Jack Nicholson. The actor - cast as shaman Taylor in the movie - was concerned about the use of real skeletons in the first film and offered to perform a real-life exorcism. He's believed to have conducted the ceremony alone and in the middle of the night, but the cast reportedly felt relieved afterward. However, less than a year after the film's release - the curse had claimed another victim. Sampson had long-term health problems as he suffered from a degenerative condition called scleroderma, which affected his heart and lungs. He underwent a heart and lung transplant in the summer of 1987 but died of post-operative kidney failure on June 3.    Ok, this one is sad and you've probably heard of it. The most famous victim of the Poltergeist curse was Heather O'Rourke. She appeared as Carol Anne in the first two films as well as the third installment, Poltergeist III, which hit cinemas in 1988. She died just four months before the movie's release at only 12 years of age. In January 1988, Heather fell ill with what appeared to be flu-like symptoms. She collapsed at home the following day and was rushed to the hospital. She suffered a cardiac arrest but doctors were able to revive her and they diagnosed her with intestinal stenosis - a partial obstruction of the intestine. She underwent surgery, but went into cardiac arrest again in recovery and doctors were unable to save her. She passed away in February 1988, just weeks after her 12th birthday, and it was later reported she died from congenital stenosis and septic shock. Absolutely heartbreaking.   Character actor Lou Perryman became the second cast member to fall victim to murder. He played Pugsley in the original movie and suffered a brutal end in 1992 when he was hacked to death with an ax aged 67. A convict recently released from prison, Seth Christopher Tatum, confessed he had killed Perryman at his home after coming off his medication and going on a drinking binge. Tatum pleaded guilty to his murder in 2011 and was sentenced to life in prison.   Actor Richard Lawson played one of the parapsychologists, Ryan, in the original film (not the guy who ate the chicken with the maggots… you're welcome) and he came close to becoming another victim of the curse in 1992. He was involved in a terrifying plane crash in 1992 when the USAir Flight 405 crashed into New York City's Flushing Bay on route to guess where? Cleveland friggin Ohio. The crash claimed the lives of 27 of the 51 passengers, but Lawson was among the survivors. He put his lucky escape down to a last-minute seat change that saved his life. Lawson went on to be part of showbiz royalty when he married Beyonce's mother, Tina Knowles in 2015.   Info for this movie was taken from mirror.co.uk.    Next up how about… Hmm…. Oh, I know… The omen! The 2976 version of course. Obviously, Moody is a time traveler and saw the upcoming remake, 955 friggin years in the future! No! It was 1976! Of all the world's cursed film productions, The Omen is considered to have one of the worst movie curses of all time. The 1976 film tells the story of a man who accidentally adopts Damien the Antichrist as his son and the movie remains one of horror's most successful franchises. But what was so odious about the set that led producers to believe the devil was punishing them for making the movie? Is The Omen really cursed? The Omen film set haunting includes death, injury, and lots of lightning bolts: after all, the creator himself warned the cast and crew that Satan wasn't going to like what they were doing. Here's what happened behind the scenes of The Omen movie and why, despite its several sequels and a 2006 remake, it remains one of history's movies that indeed may have angered Satan himself!   In June 1975, Gregory Peck's son, Jonathan Peck, killed himself with a bullet to the head, two months before filming was to start. Several strange events then surrounded the production.   For protection on the set of "The Omen," Bernhard wore a Coptic cross. In an interview, Bernhard spoke about the production's eerie events, which included the death of an animal trainer.   Precisely one day after they shot the sequence involving the baboons at the animal center, Bernhard said that a tiger seized the animal trainer by the head, causing his death immediately. Whhhaat the fuuuuuck?   One of the most haunting stories surrounding The Omen didn't happen during the shoot, but during the production of the World War II epic A Bridge Too Far. John Richardson, who did special effects on The Omen, was involved in a head-on collision that beheaded his girlfriend, eerily mirroring the decapitation scene with David Warner. Supposedly, after the crash, Richardson saw a street sign that said, "Ommen, 66.6 km." This accident occurred after The Omen had wrapped production, but many of course linked it to the evil aura of the film.   Several planes were also set ablaze, including the plane carrying Peck and screenwriter David Seltzer. Meanwhile, Bernhard said they had to land in Nova Scotia after flying back from England. He added:   "We had the film on board... Dick [Donner] and I were very, very nervous." IRA bombs ripped through a hotel, in which executive producer Mace Neufeld and his wife stayed, and another in which prominent executives and stars, including Peck, were to have dinner.   Once word got back to Fox about all the terrible incidents that plagued production, the studio saw it as a great way to drum up a ton of publicity and add to the film's ominous aura. They also put a great tagline into the film's ad campaign:                        You have been warned. If something frightening happens to you today, think about it. It may be The Omen.   As Donner recalled in The Omen: Curse or Coincidence, "If we had been making a comedy, you would have recalled all the funny, great, ridiculous, silly moments that happened in that film. if you were doing a love story, you'd remember all the times somebody left their wife, fell in love... You're doing The Omen, anything that happens on that film, you don't tell about the jokes, you don't talk about the love stories, you don't even think about them. You think about things that coincidentally could have been something to do with The Omen. We had lots of them."   Creepy stuff right there my friends.   Next up we have one of my personal all-time favorites, the crow! The Crow began filming in Wilmington, North Carolina, in 1993. Cursed Films revealed that before production got underway, a mysterious caller left a voicemail message warning the crew not to shoot the movie because bad things would happen. Eerily, two on-set electricians were involved in an accident in which their truck hit a live wire. One of the men experienced second and third-degree burns and lost both ears.   Disaster also struck the entire production when a hurricane destroyed the movie set. That is when the “curse of The Crow” rumors began circulating in Hollywood. The star of The Crow, Brandon Lee, was the son of martial arts legend, Bruce Lee. The elder Lee died during the production of his final film. Some fans speculated that the Chinese mafia had placed a hit on the actor for betraying martial arts secrets. Others suspected that he had been struck by an insidious death blow at an earlier time.   The most popular theory about The Dragon's death is that he was a victim of the Lee Family Curse. His older brother had died, and Lee's parents believed there was a demon targeting the males in the Lee family.   Like his father, Brandon Lee died before he finished filming The Crow. In a fluke accident, the performer was shot while completing an action sequence, as described in Cursed Films. The crew used what are called ‘dummy rounds,' for the scene, but there was something in the barrel of the gun that acted as a lethal projectile, killing Lee.    To complete the final photography for The Crow, the man who had been working as Lee's stunt double wore a mask in his image.   Crazy stuff!   How about some of our patented quick hitters!    The Conqueror" is a whitewashed 1956 film with John Wayne as Genghis Khan. The film was shot at a location downwind from a nuclear testing site, causing dozens of crew members to eventually die of cancer. so maybe not so much a curse as a poor choice of locations.   Apocalypse Now"   The horror! Francis Ford Coppola was tempting fate when he decided to film "Apocalypse Now" during monsoon season. Big mistake. The monsoon destroyed multiple sets, Martin Sheen suffered a heart attack during filming, and Coppola was so stressed that he suffered a seizure, according to The Independent. "Apocalypse Now" (1979) turned out to be a masterpiece anyway, but the documentary "Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker's Apocalypse" about its making is just as engrossing.    "Fitzcarraldo"    Dysentery. Injuries. Fights among the crew. Nothing seemed to go right during the filming of 1982's "Fitzcarraldo." The story concerns hauling a boat over a hill, which the crew literally accomplished, but not without the same nightmarish difficulty as is depicted in the film. And in the end, director Werner Herzog looked as mad and overly driven as its hero. Check out the documentary "Burden of Dreams" for more.   The Superman Curse    Comic book movie fans may know about the "Superman Curse," which is said to afflict multiple actors involved in Superman films. Christopher Reeve was paralyzed following a horse accident. And Margot Kidder, who played Lois opposite Reeve, suffered from bipolar disorder, according to TCM. Also, the original Superman, George Reeves, supposedly committed suicide. His death at age 45 from a gunshot remains a controversial subject; the official finding was suicide, but some believe that he was murdered or the victim of an accidental shooting.   "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers"    Bad luck ran amok in Middle Earth during the filming of 2002's "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers." DVD interviews revealed that multiple actors and stuntmen suffered injuries while shooting the film's elaborate fight sequences. The worst was Viggo Mortensen, who broke his toe and chipped his tooth while filming.   The Exorcism of Emily rose   Dexter star Jennifer Carpenter reported that during the making of The Exorcism of Emily Rose — in which she played a big-screen version of German woman Anneliese Michel, whose poor health and subsequent death was blamed on a failed exorcism — her radio would mysteriously turn on and off. From an interview with Dread Central:   Q: A common question when making a film like this; did anything weird happen during filming?   JC: I thought about that when it happened, and two or three times when I was going to sleep my radio came on by itself. The only time it scared me was once because it was really loud and it was Pearl Jam's “Alive” (laughs). Laura's TV came on a couple of times.   Q: At 3:00 a.m.?   JC: Mine wasn't 3:00 a.m. I was born at 3:00 a.m. but it hasn't happened to me. I did check.   We'll totally do an episode on Analiese one of these days   Psycho Myra Jones (aka Myra Davis) was the uncredited body double/stand-in for Psycho star Janet Leigh during the making of Hitchcock's 1960 film. A handyman named Kenneth Dean Hunt, who was supposedly a Hitchcock “obsessive,” murdered her.   The Conjuring   Real-life ghost hunters Ed and Lorraine Warren, who aided the real-life Amityville Horror case, investigated the haunting of the Perron family home — a farmhouse plagued by generations of death, disaster, and a possessed doll. The case inspired James Wan's supernatural film, which left some audiences in the Philippines with such a fright there were priests available at screenings to bless viewers and provide counseling. On and off-set paranormal incidents — including strange claw marks on star Vera Farmiga's computer, Wan's tormented dog growling at invisible intruders, a strange wind (that apparently put Carolyn Perron in the hospital), and fire — were reported.   The Innkeepers   Filmed at the reportedly haunted hotel the Yankee Pedlar Inn in Torrington, Connecticut, The Innkeepers director Ti West was skeptical about the strange occurrences during the making of his movie. Still, creepy stories from the set became the focus in the press. From an interview with West:   I'm a skeptic so I don't really buy it. But I've definitely seen doors close by themselves; I've seen a TV turn off and on by itself; lights would always burn out in my room. Everyone on the crew has very vivid dreams every night, which is really strange.   The one story that is the most intriguing to me — In the film, the most haunted room is the Honeymoon Suite. That's where the ghost stuff started in the hotel. The only reason I picked the room that I picked to shoot in, was because it was big enough to do a dolly shot. No more thought went into it other than pure technical reasons. So when we're finishing the movie, I find out that the most haunted room in real life is the room I picked to be the haunted room in the movie. It could be a coincidence. It's weird that it happened that way. . . . [Star] Sara Paxton would wake up in the middle of the night thinking someone was in the room with her. Everyone has stories, but I was too busy saying, “Let's shoot this! We have 17 days!   Atuk"    "Atuk" is a movie so cursed that it never got made. The project, based on a 1963 Mordecai Richler novel about an Eskimo in New York, had four different men attached to play the lead while in development hell through the 1970s and '80s: John Belushi, Sam Kinison, John Candy, and Chris Farley. All four died shortly after entering negotiations to be in the film. Holy shit!    Ok how about twilight zone the movie. The 1983 film 'Twilight Zone: The Movie' directed by John Landis and Steven Spielberg gained publicity pre-release because of the deaths of lead actor Vic Morrow and two child extras during the filming of the helicopter crash scene. The children were illegally hired to play the role in this scene, as Landis would go on to reveal in the subsequent trial. It was also prohibited to make children work after a certain hour in the evening. However, Landis insisted that the scene would have to entail a late-night setting to seem more authentic. This was the last scene in the film. It also included explosions as a helicopter flew over the village while Morrow would run across the street to save the Vietnamese children from the explosion. Testing for the scene sparked concerns when the helicopter seemed to vigorously rock at the explosion but despite this, Landis' need to capture the explosion took priority. He reportedly said, "You think that was big? You ain't seen nothing yet." At the controls of this helicopter was a Vietnam War veteran named Dorcey Wingo, who had just joined the movie business. When the cameras began filming, the pyrotechnic fireball that had been fired as part of the explosion hit the helicopter, engulfing it in flames. The helicopter then crashed into the river where the actors were standing — Morrow, 6-year-old Renee Chen, and 7-year-old Myca Dinh Le. Almost a hundred people were present when the tragedy occurred. The helicopter skidded right onto Renee, crushing her to death and when it toppled over, the main blade sliced through Morrow and Myca.   Rosemary's baby is next up on the list. Over the years, the myth surrounding Roman Polanski's 1968 film Rosemary's Baby has only grown in stature. The film is based on the 1967 novel of the same name by American novelist Ira Levin. He came up with the idea for the book in 1965, drawing inspiration from his wife who was pregnant at the time, his New York apartment, and the anxiety of being a parent.   The struggling writer imagined a world where there was no God and the devil was allowed to reign freely. This is evident in the iconic ending where Rosemary finds out that her husband sold her womb to Satan and that her child is the Antichrist. Levin was catapulted into the highest echelons of the literary world due to the success of his novel and a year later, a European auteur who was looking for his own Hollywood break decided to direct the film adaptation of his novel.   However, not everyone was pleased with Levin's attacks on religion. He faced severe backlash from the Catholic Church for his “blasphemy” and his wife left him the year the film was released. He was never the same man again, growing increasingly paranoid over the years. Levin repeatedly had to make public statements denouncing Satanism and told Dick Cavett that he had become “terrified” as he grew older. 30 years after the release of the film, Levin came up with a sequel titled Son of Rosemary but it tanked.   William Castle was the man who first recognized the potential of Levin's work and secured the rights to make a film adaptation. Best known for his work on B-grade horror films, Castle wanted to direct it initially but Paramount Pictures executive Robert Evans agreed to go ahead with the project only if Castle worked as a producer. In April of 1969, Castle was hospitalized because of severe kidney stones. He was already under a lot of stress due to the sheer volume of hate mail he received, a terrible consequence of being attached to Rosemary's Baby. In his autobiography, he claimed that he began to hallucinate scenes from the film during his surgery and even shouted, “Rosemary, for God's sake drop that knife!” Although Castle recovered, he never reached that level of success again.   Producer Robert Evans was not exempt from this alleged curse either. He had risen to the top with major hits like Rosemary's Baby and The Godfather. However, he was convicted of cocaine trafficking in 1980 and got a suspended prison sentence. As a part of his plea bargain, Evans had to make an anti-drug commercial. Three years later, the producer would get caught up in the high-profile murder of Roy Radin which has come to be known as the “Cotton Club murder”. Despite two witnesses testifying that Evans was involved in the case, he was later cleared of the charges. In 1993, he told The New York Times, “I had 10 years of a horrific life, Kafkaesque. There were nights I cried myself to sleep.”   This is arguably the most renowned story that is related to Rosemary's Baby. In autumn of 1968, composer Krzysztof Komeda, who worked on the film, fell off a rocky escarpment while partying and went into a four-month coma. Coincidentally, this affliction is exactly what the witches in Levin's book subject Rosemary's suspicious friend to. Komeda never came out of the coma and died in Poland the following year.   John Lennon was assassinated outside The Dakota in 1980, the famous building where they filmed Rosemary's Baby. Producer Robert Evans claimed that the whole time he was on set at the apartment building he felt a “distinctly eerie feeling”. Lennon was gunned down by alleged “fan” Mark David Chapman who was influenced by Salinger's novel The Catcher in the Rye and the loneliness of protagonist Holden Caulfield. However, the fleeting association with the film has led fans of the film to link Lennon's assassination with the “curse” of the film. It can be said that the primary reason why the myth of the curse came about was the brutal murder of Polanski's wife, actress Sharon Tate. Polanski even wanted to cast Tate as Rosemary but Evans was adamant about Mia Farrow's involvement. A year after the film's release, Tate and her friends were stabbed to death by followers of cult leader Charles Manson. Tate was eight-and-a-half months pregnant at the time of her demise. The members of the Manson Family delivered around 100 stab wounds to the four victims and wrote “Helter Skelter” on the wall in blood.   After his wife and unborn son were killed, Polanski indulged in substance abuse to cope with things but he ended up exemplifying human depravity. While guest editing the French edition of Vogue in 1977, the director preyed upon a 13-year old girl and persuaded her to participate in multiple photoshoots. During the second shoot at Jack Nicholson's house, he incapacitated the minor with champagne and half a Quaalude before sexually violating her multiple times.   Although he was arrested for the felony and spent 42 days in jail, Polanski became a fugitive and fled to France to avoid facing charges. Since then, he has lived the life of a criminal and has avoided traveling to countries where he can be extradited back to the US.   Ok, let's round things out with the wizard of oz. Despite its commercial success, The Wizard of Oz is seen by some as cursed. There were so many serious accidents onset that those Oscar-nominated special effects almost cost cast members their lives, from the two actors playing winged monkeys crashing to the ground when the wires that hoisted them up in the air broke, to the Wicked Witch of the West's stunt double Betty Danko injuring her left leg when the broomstick exploded.   Buddy Ebsen was originally cast in the role of the Tin Woodman, a.k.a. the Tin Man, but he was essentially poisoned by the makeup, which was made of pure aluminum dust. Nine days after filming started he was hospitalized, sitting under an oxygen tent. When he was not getting better fast enough, the filmmakers hired Jack Haley to be the Tin Man instead. This time, instead of applying the aluminum powder, the makeup artists mixed it into a paste and painted it on him. He did develop an infection in his right eye that needed medical attention, but it ended up being treatable.   Margaret Hamilton — who played the Wicked Witch of the West and was the one tipped who Harmetz off to the turmoil on set more than three decades later for her 1977 book — got burns, and the makeup artists had to rush to remove her copper makeup so that it wouldn't seep through her wounds and become toxic. Unlike Ebsen, she didn't get fired because they could live without her on the set for several more weeks.   An actor playing one of the Wicked Witch of the West's soldiers accidentally jumped on top of Dorothy's Toto, Carl Spitz, the dog trainer on set, told Harmetz. The dog (a female Cairn terrier named Terry) sprained its foot, and Spitz had to get a canine double. Terry did recover and returned to the set a few weeks later.   In a memoir by Judy Garland's third husband, Sid Luft, published posthumously in 2017, he writes that, after bar-hopping in Culver City, the actors who played the munchkins “would make Judy's life miserable by putting their hands under her dress.” Harmetz says it's true that the actors would go drinking near the Culver City hotel where they stayed, but she says their interactions with Garland did not rise to the level of what Luft described. “Nobody on the movie ever saw her or heard of a munchkin assaulting her,” said one worker on the film. Garland did say the drinking was annoying in an interview with talk-show host Jack Paar, but experts on Garland's life say that her rant about being scarred by the rowdy behavior on set may have been a deflection from the real damage she suffered during that time, at the hands of the studio. Garland was only 16 when she made The Wizard of Oz, and her struggles with depression and disordered eating started at an early age and continued for the rest of her life. She claimed that the studio executives gave her uppers and sleeping pills so she could keep up with the demanding pace of show business. She struggled with drug addiction and attempted suicide several times before she died of an accidental overdose on June 22, 1969, at just 47 years old.   The film went through four different producers by the time it was through.   Richard Thorpe, the first director, insisted that Judy Garland wear a blonde wig and thick makeup to depict Dorothy. When Buddy Epsen got sick from his Tin Man makeup and filming shut down for two weeks, the studio fired Thorpe and replaced him with George Cukor of My Fair Lady fame. Cukor encouraged Garland to wear natural makeup and play Dorothy less cartoonish and more natural. Cukor later left the film to work on Gone with the Wind instead and Viktor Fleming took his place. However, Cukor came back a few weeks later after getting fired from Gone With the Wind by Clark Gable (supposedly he was fired when Gable found out he was homosexual).   Director King Vidor was responsible for most of the sepia sequences and also helped Mervyn LeRoy with editing in post-production.   Not only did the public think former kindergarten teacher Margaret Hamilton was really evil following the first airing of The Wizard of Oz — she also suffered physically for the role. Hamilton received second and third-degree burns all over her body when the green copper makeup she was wearing got too hot during the fire scene. Her stunt double spent months in the hospital after a prop broom exploded — they were using a double because Hamilton got injured on an earlier take.   Stage makeup and prosthetics in 1939 were nowhere near what they are today. Ray Bolger's Scarecrow makeup left deeply embedded marks in his skin that didn't disappear for more than a year after the movie wrapped up filming. Luckily, this would never happen today.   How bout that hanging munchkin… Well, sorry folks. That seems to be fake. In a scene where Dorothy, the Scarecrow (Ray Bolger), and the Tin Man (Jack Haley) are skipping down the Yellow Brick Road, singing “we're off to see the wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Oz,” some think the dark, moving figure hanging from a tree in the background is an actor who hanged himself on set. More likely, it's one of the exotic birds that the filmmakers borrowed from the Los Angeles Zoo to create a wilderness setting. The rumor has been circulating since around 1989, the time of the 50th anniversary of the film's release.

A lot of people come to self-improvement because they want more for themselves or they want more from themselves. And when those desires comes from a feeling of not being enough yet, then self-improvement can be a very painful, never-ending quest.  Ironically, when we go after “more” without first establishing our fundamental enoughness, it won't create more, it only creates more not-enoughness. So I want you to know two things:  You are already enough. And also, there is more for you. These are not contradictory ideas. They are complimentary ones. And these two ideas are most powerful and do the most good in our lives when they are used together. Separated, these ideas can either cause us to settle or to constantly strive. But together they are magic.  In today's podcast episode I'll show you how because both things are true—you are enough and there is more—your potential is unlimited and reaching that potential can be a joyful endeavor.  https://www.aprilpricecoaching.com/blog/132

He encountered conflicts at work, in culture, and within himself. He didn't know how to handle any of it, and he didn't know where to look for help. Worse, he lost a job because he continually avoided conflict with an upset boss. But getting fired was the wake-up call he needed. He had to adapt himself and improve as a leader, which meant engaging the conflict he disliked so much. Ironically, his ongoing struggle with conflict became a fascination. Now, he helps others take on the same challenges. To learn more, you can visit https://www.adaptingleaders.com Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

The Save The Marriage Podcast

People hear me talk about forgiving (I wrote a book on it).  Then they ask, "why should I have to forgive?" Ironically, my point was that forgiving frees the forgiver. I tackle forgiveness in-depth for this week's podcast. In fact, I give you a 6 step process of how to forgive. But of course, this is only helpful if you think you want to forgive. I start the podcast by clarifying what I mean by forgiveness, and why I think it is so important. (Hint: not forgiving is like having a systemic infection that will eat away at the rest of your life.) The catch is, as C.S. Lewis said, "Everyone thinks forgiveness is a lovely idea until he has something to forgive." When we have been injured, the idea of forgiving is not philosophical, and it can feel overwhelming. Join me as we explore why to forgive and ways to forgive. RELATED RESOURCES: Why Apologize How to Apologize Book:  The Forgive Process Program:  Save The Marriage

That's completely not true. Even people with raging cases of anorexia nervosa could be at a weight that is quote, unquote, like average or higher than average."18:13: Purging Behaviors"You know, like, movement is great movement is beautiful.

Life (UN)Closeted: LGBTQ & Heterosexual Coming Out Stories & Advice for coming out of life's closets!

You're a man, with a penis, but you enjoy dressing up as a woman. OMG, you must want to be transgender! Not exactly. Ok, so you want to do strange things to children in bathrooms by dressing up as a woman..HELL NO. Truth is, you are simply a man who likes men and women, and who one day you like presenting as a man, and the next day presenting as a woman, and you enjoy sex with both...Welcome to being gender fluid. Kat LaMar shares his, hers, their story on the life of being a genderfluid individual which actually has nothing to do with their sexual orientation, until it does. Let's go explore gender fluidity. About Kat I'm an AMAB (assigned male at birth) who identifies as genderfluid/non-binary.  Before I knew those words, I described myself as a "cross dresser."  That term is now antiquated and does not reflect my gender identity.  I knew I was "different" at around 4 years old.  From then until my 20s, I struggled with all of the typical shame and self-hatred associated with feeling different.  I told no one. I did everything I could to get rid of it.  I was surrounded, as many of us were and are, by toxic masculinity. I finally came out to someone at age 19.  From then, my circle of people who knew about me gradually grew bigger and bigger.  Still, I kept a list in my head of people who could never know.  I got married and had three kids.  They all knew and embraced it.  I was lucky.  For unrelated reasons, my wife and I separated in 2017.  It was then that I decided I didn't want to have a "circle" of people who knew and a list of people who didn't.  I decided to come out to the world, via social media, of course.  I credit a girlfriend I had at the time.  Although we only were together for about two months, she left me with one of the best pieces of wisdom I had ever heard: give those around you the change to love you as a queer person.  I'm very fortunate to be surrounded by so many people who love and embrace my authentic self-the authentic version of me who I hated and tried to get rid of for so long. My sexual orientation follows a pretty similar arc.  I knew as a child that I liked girls.  But I also liked guys.  I had the same feelings of guilt and shame.  I hid it from everyone and tried to rid myself of it.  Eventually, there was a small circle of people who I told.   That circle got bigger and bigger, until there was no circle at all.  My wife, who was also bisexual, knew and embraced it.  I identify as pansexual and polyamorous.  Ironically, I'm not currently seeing anyone. Living authentically is critical to living a happy and satisfying life.  There is nothing like it.

Strangling of John Lewis Voting Rights Act could be death blow for democracy

These are the only states that would be policed under the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act, the requirement to “pre-clear” new, racially biased, voting procedures, such as limitations on early voting: Alabama Georgia Louisiana Mississippi North Carolina South Carolina Texas Virginia Don't get me wrong, the strangling of the John Lewis Act by filibuster, unlike the overhyped For the People Act, could be the death blow to a democratically elected Congress. In 2013, Justice Kennedy said the Voting Rights Act would have been constitutional if it didn't target specific states, a suggestion from New York City which was then under pre-clearance review. While the new list is a rogues gallery of bad actors, there are real dangers in Ohio, Wisconsin, Arizona and Florida, not on the list. The Democratic Party has to grasp that vote suppression is serious in almost every state. Ironically, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema may be the victim of her own obstructionism. Even with its limitations, the John Lewis Act would've been a very powerful weapon. For example, the act would absolutely have prevented Cobb County, Georgia, from closing six of 11 early voting stations, all six in African-American neighborhoods. So what now? While Attorney General Merrick Garland his filed suits against parts of Georgia's new Jim Crow SB 202, action so far is slow, limited, and scatter shot.

Listen to a new episode of Your Next Stop recorded live on Fireside with host Juliet Hahn featuring SUGARED + BRONZED Founder Courtney Claghorn.   “Be focused on your business but don't be consumed in the textbook way of doing everything. A lot of people are so caught up in doing things perfectly instead of the core business.” - Courtney Claghorn   From a young age, Courtney Claghorn always felt her best with a tan. Ironically, she was the only Italian family member who didn't tan easily! While she used to find this frustrating, she later realized it was a blessing not to have spent her younger years baking in the sun. For her, a faux glow was the way to go.   Before opening the OG Santa Monica salon, Courtney attended the University of Colorado at Boulder, where she met boyfriend and Co-Founder, Sam Offit. Shortly after graduation, they landed in Santa Monica.   When Courtney found herself overpaying for spray tans at underwhelming locations, Sam encouraged her to find a better solution — and SUGARED + BRONZED was born! Word spread quickly. The growing client base encouraged Courtney to spread her wings from her short-lived corporate life and refocus her energy toward growing her business full-time. She soon became a 4th generation female entrepreneur, so perhaps her Italian half gave her good genes after all!   So why sugaring and bronzing? Concocting the perfect recipe for her business, Courtney, a longtime skincare fanatic, decided to add a little sugar to her sunless tanning idea.  While sugaring has ancient Egyptian roots, it felt relevant to the modern world as a natural, eco-friendly way to remove hair. While developing her business, Courtney quickly realized that sugaring was not only the new waxing but also the perfect complement to a spray tan. Both services were often relegated to the bottom of long spa menus when in actuality, both techniques deserved finesse and attention for clients to receive consistent and optimal results.   Courtney's vision brought the two popular services side by side. SUGARED + BRONZED quickly became a uniquely synergetic space for those seeking a little extra pep in their step. No matter the occasion, SUGARED + BRONZED promises that you'll leave with immaculately smooth skin and a natural faux glow.

We have a new cast member. Everyone will be introduced to 'Red'. Hard to tell if the carpet matches the drapes...but you do the math on that one.Ironically enough, we do an unexpected shout out to Dave Chappelle (whom we love).In Spokane, Washington's daily weather shoutout, they didn't realize that the entire 6 minute duration of the weather update, there was porn playing in the corner of the screen. RIP to the intern that made that mistake, which doesn't really matter because D's wife now watches porn..or maybe it was the weather. This doesn't top the existing record set by CNN for 30 minutes of porn, when it was supposed to be Anthony Bourdain.  After discussing weather porn, Red takes us to story time with discussing innapropriate movies that he accidentally plays on the plane, including Wolf of Wallstreet. In each of the cases, it would be lucky for him to get caught. In California, a ninja (complete with a Katana) was at a California airport throwing rocks, breaking windows...when things went wrong. A military spec ops team was at the air port as well, and let's just say that they took care of him.Fun fact: Direct descendants of hippos owned by Pablo Escobar before his death, have been classified as people. Yes, you read that right...hippos are people. Listen and Subscribe On:Apple PodcastAmazon MusicSpotifyGoogle PlayiHeartRadioPocket CastStitcherCastroCastboxRSS Feed

It's not just here in the US. It's also going on in Europe as well.”“Ironically, the news channel that Trump has been so much at war with, Fox, News, they have a whole line of anchors who are picking up where Trump left off.

Jokes and Laughter: The New Symbol of the Far Right | Guest: Bridget Phetasy | 10/28/21

Laughter is apparently now the new symbol of the far Right, according to the humorless Left. If we are indeed in a culture war, the side that has no fun is sealing its own defeat. Ironically, this isn't the first time they've made this argument against comedy and probably won't be the last, even though it never works. Parents are taking action to protect their children, with one group taking over a public school board meeting in Portland. If the cultural Marxists in the government want to indoctrinate our children, it's up to parents to protect their own. A North Carolina man was awarded $10 million in a wrongful termination suit after he said he was fired because he's white. Apparently, the judge agreed that discrimination does apply to white people. Surely many social justice warriors are shocked to find this out.
