You can still drive a golf ball 200 yards! Today on MoneyWise, Rob West answers the question of how to know when it's time to pay for repairs or replace your car. If you've tried to buy a used car recently, you probably noticed the high prices. Why are they high? Demand for cars has risen while the supply of new cars has fallen. People who might normally buy new cars aren't able to find them, which leads them to buying dependable used cars. This increased demand in used cars has caused prices to rise. Rob mentioned some of the reasons the new car supply has fallen: There is a computer chip shortage, due to a fire at a factory in Japan. This caused a worldwide shortage of chips used to regulate modern vehicle engines and transmissions. No new chips mean no new cars. Auto manufacturing plants are having a difficult time keeping their workforce up due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This further decreases production. Secondary manufactures are dealing with the same issues, creating a shortage of the thousands of parts needed to assemble cars. Some automakers have ceased operations temporarily. Vehicle wholesaler Manheim, which also monitors and scores used car values, said they're the highest they've ever been. The upward trend in used car values has started to level out just a bit, but prices are still way above last year's numbers. Cars.com says used-car prices are still going up, but the rate of climb in prices has started to taper off in recent months. Their used car median listing price in August was $24,000, up almost 35% from last year. So does all of this mean you should wait until used vehicle prices get back to what we remember as normal? That depends on how much life is left in the vehicle you're trying to replace. Experts who've been monitoring the chip shortage and other supply chain problems say it will take time for new car inventories to increase. That means used car prices won't drop anytime soon. So in this inflated market, how do you know if it's worth it to repair your current vehicle? Consumer expert Clark Howard recently tackled that question. He suggests: If the repairs cost less than half of the car's value, go ahead and have the work done. If the repairs cost between half and the full value of the car, have the work done only if that means you'll get another year out of the vehicle. Bottom line, if you can afford to wait until prices decline you'll more than likely come out ahead. Next, Rob answered a few listener questions including the following: I received a $14,000 settlement due to an injury. Do I tithe on the whole amount or on the amount after expenses? I have around $170,000 in debt including a mortgage, auto loan and credit card. We have enough to pay off these debts with around $65,000 left over. Should we pay them off all at once with our savings or take them on one at a time? Do savings accounts have a Payable on Death feature allowing me to designate a beneficiary for that account so that it avoids probate? I'm getting married soon, what is a good place to start as a married couple to be good stewards of God's money?

Renunciationis not simply leaving home —it is homelessness!* * *Master Dogen was quite prolific as a writer, even by today's standards. But we should remember that writing in those days, as well as publishing, was accomplished with rice paper, brushes and ink. Imagine what he might have done with a word processor. He apparently intended his master work, Shobogenzo, which tends to overshadow his other writings, to consist of 100 fascicles, or chapters, but he completed only 95 in his brief lifetime of 53 years.At a conference on Eihei Dogen around 2000 in Palo Alto, after his signature lecture on Dogen's collection of 300 koans, called the Mana Shobogenzo, I asked John Daido Loori, What could the other five have possibly been about? The old modern master huffed, “Good point!” and walked away.This collection, subtitled as “Sayings of Eihei Dogen Zenji recorded by Koun Ejo” in a small volume published by the Soto sect in Japan, was translated by one of my teachers, Shohaku Okumura Roshi. I have selected a couple of examples from the six “books” of live teachings, and will number them for your future reference. I hope you delve into these wonderful postcards from the past in greater detail.1-2 Dogen also said,[You] should maintain the precepts and eating regulations (one meal a day before noon, etc.). Still, it is wrong to insist upon them as essential, establish them as a practice, and expect to be able to gain the Way by observing them. We follow them just because they are the activities of Zen monks and the lifestyle of the Buddha's children. Although keeping them is good, we should not take them as the primary practice. I don't mean to say, however, that you should break the precepts and become self-indulgent. Clinging to such an attitude is an evil view and not that of a Buddhist practitioner. We follow the precepts of regulations simply because they form the standard for a Buddhist and are the tradition of Zen monasteries. While I was staying at Chinese monasteries, I met no one who took them as the primary concern.So the great master, while lecturing to monks living at a monastery, insists that the strict protocols of monastic life are not the primary practice of a monk. That central position is reserved for zazen itself. This tells us, as lay practitioners, that the lifestyle of the monastic, which we may hold in high esteem, and even long to emulate, is not crucial. We remember from Jijuyu Zammai — Self-fulfilling Samadhi — “Without engaging in incense offering, bowing, chanting Buddha's name, repentance and reading scripture, you should just wholeheartedly sit, and thus drop away body and mind.” The various rituals are the peripherals, plug-and-play supportive activities surrounding the true teaching found in meditation. The lifestyle of the householder is likewise not central to living a Zen life. Zazen alone is:For true attainment of the Way, devoting all effort to zazen alone has been transmitted among the buddhas and patriarchs. For this reason, I taught a fellow student of mine… a disciple of Zen Master Eisai, to abandon his strict adherence of keeping the precepts and reciting the Precept Sutra day and night.It looks like Dogen, while a student, played a somewhat subversive role in respect to his Dharma brothers. It reminds me of the tale of the young visiting junior monks, unsui, whom the abbot admonished not to go “imitating the senior monks around here.” When they saw him following the same protocols, they confronted him with the contradiction, to which he said, “I just have my devotion this way.” He was not imitating anyone. Dogen is attributed with asking, “In zazen, what precept is not fulfilled?” Wholehearted practice is not dependent upon the circumstances of our daily life. The real monastery has no walls. But regarding monastic life, Dogen's wheelhouse, the master had a lot to say:1-21 Dogen instructed, Students of the Way, you must be very careful on several levels in giving up worldly sentiment. Give up the world, give up your family, and give up your body and mind. Consider this well. Even among those who retreat from the world and live secluded in the mountains or forests, there are some who fear that their family, which has continued for many generations, will cease to exist, and who become anxious for their family members or their relatives.This deals with renunciation. Members of many spiritual sects are known as renunciants, turning their back on the normal family and social lives of the times, becoming hermits or mendicants. In any time this would represent a radical departure from the societal norms, including its mores and memes. The fundamental purpose of one's life would be re-examined, giving and extremely new meaning to the notion of the “unexamined life” not being worth living. Master Dogen would often focus our attention in zazen like a laser, exhorting us to examine his teachings thoroughly in practice, i.e. mainly in meditation.Although some people depart from home and give up family or property, they have not yet given up their bodies if they think that they should not do anything physically painful and avoid practicing anything which may cause sickness, even through they know it to be the Buddha-Way.Here I have experienced a trick of the memory, which modern studies have apparently proven is a dependable attribute of long-term memory — that it is not dependable. That is, we unconsciously modify and embellish our memories over time, e.g. to polish our self-image, or to make them more meaningful. In this case, I remembered this section as Master Dogen outlining several levels of monks, and how he evaluated them in terms of their ability to do true renunciation. Here I find no specifics of that construct as I recall, and have been freely paraphrasing. Continuing with the last bit as published in this edition:Further, even if they carry out hard and painful practices without clinging to their bodily lives, if their minds have not yet entered the Buddha-Way and if they resolve not to act against their own will even if such actions are the Buddha-Way, they have not yet given up their minds.In my revisionist memory, Dogen expresses ranking monastics in a holarchy of renunciation. The first-level renunciant does what I interpret as outward renunciation: turning their back on the social world, physically leaving home, and donning the clothing and appearance of a monastic. But s/he is unable to actually let go of attachment to family, and/or may harbor secret yearnings for fame and fortune, or status.The second level can actually reject the blandishments of society and the security and comfort of the family tree, which I refer to as physical renunciation. But this person cannot forsake clinging to the comforts of a healthy body, and put their own life on the line for the sake of Zen.The third level adept is able to lay down their life and limb for the sake of the mendicant lifestyle. But they are unable to give up their own willful opinion of all the above. For example, they may be able to perform the abandonment of home and hearth, health and longevity, but they may nourish a certain self-image, taking pride in their accomplishments. This is monkey-mind.If, however, unlike the monkey, they are able to release their grip on all the cookies in the jar, thus liberating themselves from their own clinging mind, they may accede to the highest level in Dogen's hierarchy. At this point, they have done true renunciation, seeing through all the various dimensions of their life, and especially the delusional aspect of their own construct of what it means. Thus, the highest becomes the lowest, and the householder becomes identical with the monastic. If, in the midst of everyday life, with all its complexity, we can still manage to see through to the underlying emptiness, we need not abandon it in favor of the monastic model.Another comment on this came in response to a question raised by a nun in the congregation of Dogen:3-2 Once, a certain nun asked, “Even lay women practice and study the buddha-dharma. As for nuns, even though we have some faults, I feel there is no reason to say that we go against the buddha-dharma. What do you think?”Dogen admonished, “This is not a correct view. Lay women might attain the Way as a result of practicing the buddha-dharma as they are. However, no monk or nun attains it unless he or she has the mind of one who has left home. This is not because the buddha-dharma discriminates between one person and another, but rather because the person doesn't enter the dharma. There must be a difference in the attitude of lay people and those who have left home. A layman who has the mind of a monk or nun who has left home will be released from samsara. A monk or nun who has the mind of a lay person has double faults. Their attitudes should be quite different. It is not that it is difficult to do, but to do it completely is difficult. The practice of being released from samsara and attaining the Way seems to be sought by everyone, but those who accomplish it are few. Life-and-death is the Great Matter, impermanence is swift. Do not let your mind slacken. If you abandon the world, you should abandon it completely. I don't think that the names provisionally used to distinguish monks and nuns from lay people are at all important.”I quote Dogen without omission because I frankly cannot see that any part of his response is not germane and important to our understanding of lay versus monastic practice. He profiles this as a choice, but insists that we are either all-in, or we are not. However he does not indicate that just because one chooses one way or the other, one is not superior or inferior to the other. It depends. Wholehearted practice does not depend on the choice so much as the commitment. Half-baked practice in either case would seem to be the point of what the translators refer to as an admonition. Because Dogen is sometimes characterized as the “father” of Soto Zen in Japan, and mistakenly characterized as overly stern, severe and authoritarian, I would respectfully submit that these instructions are like those given to a child, in the sense of compassionate guidance, or tough love, and not at all condescending, or admonishing. He is not taking sides or advising this nun, and by extension ourselves, as to which way is right for us. He is only encouraging us to recognize the path we walk, and not to confuse the one with the other. Followed to where they are leading, either way works. All roads on the Original Frontier lead to nirvana. Eventually.Master Dogen touches on this point again in later references in Zuimonki, but we do not have time to comment on all of them. In 4-3, for example he reiterates, “The primary point you should attend to is detaching yourself from personal views. To detach yourself from personal views means to not cling to your body.” And later in the same section, “…if you have not detached from the mind which clings to your body, it is like vainly counting up another's wealth without possessing even a half-penny of your own. I implore you to sit quietly and seek the beginning and the end of this body on the ground of reality.” Here we find another aphorism we might have assumed to be Western or biblical in origin. But the great master could as easily have been addressing these comments to a lay audience, rather than to his coterie of monks and nuns. And again, the way, the method for both, is, as always, zazen.In another instance, in 5-20, he quotes an ancient master who said, “At the top of a hundred foot pole, advance one step further.” He goes on to reinforce his point with this familiar Zen trope:This means you should have the attitude of someone who, at the top of a hundred-foot pole, lets go of both hands and feet; in other words, you must cast aside body and mind. There are various stages involved here. Nowadays, some people seem to have abandoned the world and left their homes. Nevertheless, when examining their actions, they still haven't truly left home, or renounced the world. As a monk who has left home, first you must depart from your ego as well as from [desire for] fame and profit. Unless you become free from these things, despite practicing the Way urgently as though extinguishing a fire enveloping your head… it will amount to nothing but meaningless trouble, having nothing to do with emancipation.Here we find the famous “hair on fire” trope we think originated with Dogen but now ubiquitous as the image of extreme urgency and intensity. This is followed by a rather long critique of the ignorance and misguided attitudes of recalcitrant and phony monks of the time, which we sometimes imagine to be a modern anomaly. But people are people, and were no different in Dogen's day. Note the restatement, found elsewhere, of the idea that unless your commitment is total, Zen practice may be a waste of time.As a final note, it should be mentioned that in many parts of his oeuvre, Dogen promotes the monastic alternative. In his times, as it is today, it was probably more difficult for a lay person, man or woman, to maintain a practice of meditation and Dharma study than for a cloistered monk or nun. In 6-9 he likens entering a monastery to passing through the “Dragon-Gate… where vast waves rise incessantly. Without fail, all fish once having passed through this place become dragons.” But he goes on to say,The vast waves there are not different from those in any other place, and the water is also ordinary salt water. Despite that, mysteriously enough, when fish cross that place, they all become dragons. Their scales do not change and their bodies stay the same; however, they suddenly become dragons.I take his meaning to be that all of us, wherever we find ourselves, are surfing the vast waves of samsara that are rising incessantly all around us. And we are all capable of undergoing this mysterious change, passing through the gateless gate, that is nothing more or less than returning to our original nature, while nothing else changes. He goes on to point out that the monastery — sorin in Japanese, which connotes a place pf practice in the forest — is “not a special place.” In transforming samsara to nirvana, our practice converts the mundane to the sacred, and vice-versa.

This Wednesday episode is a quick whip through the schedule for the week, starting with the Zozo Championship on the PGA Tour. Andy laments the no-cut status and the notion that the PGA Tour is sending its worst kind of product to a market that every player should play in during the season. During this discussion, the new Australia event for pros and amateurs is praised, while a larger concern about that historic golf market being somewhat left behind on the greatest pro stages is raised. Also, is Rickie the player with the most to gain from these sleepy fall events, or is it “European Rickie”? The first leg of the Schwab Cup is noted, with defending champ Phil Mickelson in the field. Some “notables” from both KFT and LPGA q-schools are discussed as well, including Dr. Jack's boy. They close with news on one college player signing with an agency for NIL matters before a technical issue forces an abrupt ending.

Missiles, missiles everywhere. Incredibly, the recent, frightening revelation that Communist China surprised U.S. intelligence by launching a hypersonic missile designed for sneak nuclear attacks and defeating our missile defenses is now yesterday's news. Today's news is that the PRC's puppet, North Korea, has surprisingly launched from underwater a short-range ballistic missile in the direction of Japan – a significant technical achievement for that otherwise backward country and boost for its principal export product: ominous arms sales. As we are sure to hear in the days ahead about Russian, Iranian, Hezbollah, Pakistani and other missile threats, the question occurs: Are we doing absolutely everything possible to have effective anti-missile defenses? The answer is “No.” We can – and must – quickly deploy sensors and weapons in space utilizing unconventional guidance technologies to meet the present and growing danger. It's time for a Manhattan Project 2.0. This is Frank Gaffney.
Welcome to UnforMETable, an Amazin' Avenue Audio show that looks back on less heralded, more obscure Mets players from the past. Timo Perez began his professional baseball career over in Japan before the Mets scouted him and took a flyer on him prior to the 2000 season. A strong minor league campaign earned him a September call up, and his speed and versatility helped him find a place on the Mets' postseason roster. When regular right fielder Derek Bell went down with an ankle sprain in the first game of the playoffs, manager Bobby Valentine somewhat surprisingly turned to Perez to take over for him. Perez immediately provided the desired spark and seemed destined to put himself in the lore of unlikely baseball postseason heroes, until an unfortunate base running mistake cost the Mets a run in a World Series Game 1 they would lose in extra innings. If you've got an idea for a player to be featured on UnforMETable, let us know in the comments. Make sure to follow Rob on Twitter (@WolffRR), and you can now follow the show, too (@unformetable).

Counting Dreams: The Life and Writings of the Loyalist Nun Nomura Bōtō (Cornell UP, 2021) tells the story of Nomura Bōtō, a Buddhist nun, writer, poet, and activist who joined the movement to oppose the Tokugawa Shogunate and restore imperial rule. Banished for her political activities, Bōtō was imprisoned on a remote island until her comrades rescued her in a dramatic jailbreak, spiriting her away under gunfire. Roger K. Thomas examines Bōtō's life, writing, and legacy, and provides annotated translations of two of her literary diaries, shedding light on life and society in Japan's tumultuous bakumatsu period and challenging preconceptions about women's roles in the era. Thomas interweaves analysis of Bōtō's poetry and diaries with the history of her life and activism, examining their interrelationship and revealing how she brought two worlds—the poetic and the political—together. Counting Dreams illustrates Bōtō's significant role in the loyalist movement, depicting the adventurous life of a complex woman in Japan on the cusp of the Meiji Restoration.

Lauren Regula's first appearance with softball Team Canada came at the 1999 Junior World Championships in Taipei. She joined the senior national team in 2002, helping Canada to a ninth-place finish at the world championships. She made her Olympic debut at Athens 2004, starting five games and being in the winning pitcher in all three of Canada's victories. Following a fifth-place finish at the 2006 World Championships, Regula missed the entire 2007 season with a wrist injury. But she was healthy enough to return to the Olympic Games at Beijing 2008, helping Canada to a fourth-place finish as she recorded two victories. After the heartbreaking loss in the bronze medal game in Beijing, Regula retired and didn't pick up a ball for eight years. She started a family, having three kids. She has since been open about the postpartum depression she began to suffer from in 2012. It continued until 2018 when she says she hit “rock bottom” and finally got the help she needed in the form of therapy and hormone therapy. After a long road to recovery, she has said she feels like she has “a new lease on life”. It was in 2016, while she was still struggling with postpartum depression, that Regula came out of retirement and pitched her way back to a starting role with Team Canada, winning a bronze medal at the WBSC World Championships. In late 2018, she suffered a small tear in her left hip labrum and did not throw again until she was invited to join Canada's training camp from which the 2020 Olympic team would be selected. In her third Olympic appearance, Regula pitched 5.1 innings in three games. She struck out seven and did not give up a single hit or run as Canada won the bronze medal. Regula played collegiately at Oklahoma State University, primarily as a pitcher but also in the outfield when not on the circle. Over her four seasons with the Cowgirls she was a member of the All-Big12 conference team each year. In her senior season in 2003, she struck out 451 batters on her way to a 26-10 record, was awarded the OSU Female Athlete of the Year and named a First Team All-American. After having finished at OSU, Regula joined the National Pro Fastpitch league for two seasons. She posted the first no-hitter in Chicago Bandits history in 2005 on her way to a 17-1 record, earning Pitcher of the Year honours. In this episode, Lauren breaks down her struggles with guilt over being away for the Games, her love of her family, what gives her strength and drive, and shares the importance of perseverance in the face of hardship. She's such an inspiration, sharing lessons we can all apply in our every day life about the importance of showing up for yourself, surrounding yourself with people who also support you, and giving yourself the grace to be the best version of you that you can be.

This is Coronavirus 411, the latest COVID-19 info and new hotspots for October 19th, 2021. 84-year-old Colin Powell, the retired four-star general who became the country's first Black secretary of state and chairman of the Joints Chiefs of Staff, died from complications of Covid-19. He was fully vaccinated. Powell had a cancer of a type of white blood cell. France's High Authority for Health decided to no longer allow the Moderna vaccine to be injected as a booster dose against Covid-19. Now only Pfizer is used for boosters in those that are eligible. Sweden and Finland had already suspended use of Moderna for those under 30 due to potential heart risks. And Denmark and Norway formally advised against it for people under 18. Iceland suspended it as a booster dose altogether. Japan is suddenly a big coronavirus success story. And if you ask them what they did, they'll tell you “we have no idea.” Daily cases have plummeted, bars are packed, trains are crowded, and Japan never came anywhere near a lockdown. Some speculate it's because of a late but fast vaccination campaign, bad weather in August that kept people home, or widespread masking, which was already embraced in that country even pre-pandemic. Thousands of California parents were expected to keep their kids home from school to protest a vaccine mandate. Some teachers were also planning on not showing up to classrooms. Nearly 40% of state employees remain unvaccinated. The question is, if we're going to get booster shots, why weren't the vaccine formulas revised to more closely target the Delta variant that's been the biggest problem? The answer: The FDA okayed Pfizer boosters of the original recipe last month because studies showed it works good enough against Delta and the doses could roll out immediately without manufacturing problems. In the United States cases were down 22%, deaths are down 19%, and hospitalizations are down 18% over 14 days. The 7-day average of new cases has been trending down since September 13. There are 9,675,650 active cases in the United States. With not all states reporting daily numbers, the five states with the greatest increase in hospitalizations per capita: Michigan 28%, Minnesota 22%. Montana 13%, Colorado 11%. And Pennsylvania and North Dakota 8%. The top 10 counties with the highest number of recent cases per capita according to The New York Times: Goshen, WY. Lake, MT. Stark, ND. Bethel Census Area, AK. Matanuska-Susitna Borough, AK. Kenai Peninsula Borough, AK. Nome Census Area, AK. Todd, MN. Hill, MT. And Hale, AL. There have been at least 724,502 deaths in the U.S. recorded as Covid-related. The top 3 vaccinating states by percentage of population that's been fully vaccinated: Vermont at 70.5%, and Connecticut and Rhode Island at 69.9%. The bottom 3 vaccinating states are West Virginia unchanged at 40.8%, Idaho at 42.9%, and Wyoming at 43%. The percentage of the U.S. that's been fully vaccinated is 57%. Only one country had a 24-hour increase in the number of fully vaccinated people: Oceana up 2%. Globally, cases were down 11% and deaths were down 15% over 14 days, with the 7-day average trending down since August 26. There are 17,863,141 active cases around the world. The five countries with the most new cases: The U.K. 45,140. Russia 34,303. Turkey 24,114. The United States 17,947. And India 14,289. There have been at least 4,901,756 deaths reported as Covid-related worldwide.

Dan Meis has developed a reputation for out-of-the-box, innovative thinking while creating projects that redefine their respective building types. This include a “transformable” venue in Japan that mechanically changes from arena to stadium. He also led the design for the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Neil examines the creativity it takes to bring a design to life, exploring the process of the designs, how progress is made and how the ever-present challenges are overcome.

In 1616, British officer Nathaniel Courthope was sent to a tiny island in the East Indies to contest a Dutch monopoly on nutmeg. He and his men would spend four years battling sickness, starvation, and enemy attacks to defend the island's bounty. In this week's episode of the Futility Closet podcast we'll describe Courthope's stand and its surprising impact in world history. We'll also meet a Serbian hermit and puzzle over an unusual business strategy. Intro: Should orangutans be regarded as human? How fast does time fly?
