Welcome to Take Your Time, a Persona 5 podcast by Jonathon Dornbush and Tom Marks in which the duo will be playing Persona 5 Strikers in sort of real time, but not quite as in real time as our Persona 5 Royal playthrough. Tom and Jonathon continue their P5 Strikers podcast series with episode 8, focused on August 17-18, as the Phantom Thieves explore Strikers' fourth Jail in Okinawa. After reading some comments and answering Tom's pop quiz question, Tom and Jonathon explore some of the surprising story beats leading up to P5 Strikers' fourth Jail. The duo digs into the clever tone shifts Persona 5's sequel introduces ahead of the Okinawa Jail before breaking down P5 Strikers' unique approach to its fourth Jail. We discuss how Okinawa's Jail differs from the past three jails in Strikers, what story revelations it holds for Sophia, the overarching mysteries of the sequel, and more. Jonathon and Tom pick apart some important tape recordings the gang hears in the metaverse, talk about how the Okinawa Jail's gameplay does and doesn't put a twist on the Jails so far, and dig into a wonderful Ryuji moment. We also discuss a little about what the gang gets up to after completing the Jail and before they embark on their journey to a new location. Tom also offers his pop quiz question and more.

TESTO DELL'ARTICOLO ➜ www.filmgarantiti.it/it/articoli.php?id=478IL TALENTO ARTISTICO DI MEL GIBSON di Roberto MarchesiniGran bel film, La Battaglia di Hacksaw Ridge: splendido dal punto di vista tecnico, commuove, appassiona ed eleva lo spirito.Prima di parlarne, ripercorriamo la carriera dell'autore, il famoso Mel Gibson. Che, forse, dà uno spaccato dell'evoluzione del pensiero di un cattolico negli Stati Uniti... Diventa una star di Hollywood negli anni '70 e '80 grazie alle serie Mad Max e Arma letale. Sembra destinato al genere avventuroso-fracassone quando, nel 1990, Zeffirelli lo chiama per vestire i panni di Amleto. Gibson coglie l'occasione, e sfodera una prova da grande attore. Nel 1993 esce il suo primo film da regista: L'uomo senza volto. Un grande, commovente e drammatico film sulla figura paterna, oggetto di diffidenza e anche odio, ma necessaria.BRAVEHEART (1996), IL PATRIOTA (2000) & WE WERE SOLDIERS (2002)Tre anni dopo ecco l'epico e monumentale Braveheart Cuore impavido. Di questo film ricordiamo il realismo, la violenza ed uno dei più grandi discorsi della storia del cinema («Agonizzanti in un letto, fra molti anni da adesso...»), probabilmente ispirato all'Enrico V di Shakespeare. Emerge anche il tema politico: l'indipendenza della Scozia dalla tirannia inglese. Il film regala a Gibson, oltre ad un importante incasso, 5 premi Oscar. [leggi: UN CUORE IMPAVIDO PER LA LIBERTA', clicca qui, N.d.BB]Nel 2000 Gibson interpreta Il patriota. Apparentemente un film sull'indipendenza degli Stati Uniti che nasconde però ben altro. Innanzitutto, il patriota del titolo non combatte per la patria, anzi: al momento dell'arruolamento, si rifiuta, anteponendo i suoi doveri di padre a quelli nei confronti della «nazione americana» («Perché dovrei scambiare un tiranno a tremila miglia di distanza con tremila tiranni lontani solo un miglio?»). Feroce guerriero, Benjamin Martin si schiera risolutamente dalla parte della pace («Vi sono alternative alla guerra»). Più che un film patriottico, Il patriota è piuttosto un film libertario; la sua bandiera non è quella a stelle e strisce, ma quella che verrà usata anni dopo dal Tea Party. [...]Nel 2002 Mel Gibson è impegnato in un film alla Berretti verdi: We were soldiers - Fino all'ultimo uomo. Interpreta un ufficiale - cattolico ed oltremodo eroico - impegnato nella guerra del Vietnam. Siamo all'esordio alla presidenza di Bush Jr: Gibson sembra concedere un minimo di fiducia alle istituzioni statunitensi dopo due mandati Clinton. [leggi: WE WERE SOLDIERS - FINO ALL'ULTIMO UOMO, clicca qui, N.d.BB]LA PASSIONE DI CRISTO (2004) & APOCALYPTO (2006)Nel 2004 esce La passione di Cristo: un film brutale e realistico su passione, morte e risurrezione di Gesù, con luci caravaggesche e recitato in aramaico, ebraico, latino. Prima dell'uscita nelle sale si diffonde la notizia secondo la quale il padre di Mel Gibson sarebbe un cattolico sedevacantista antisemita. Appena il film esce nelle sale fioccano le stroncature: si schierano Natalia Aspesi («Un'orgia di sangue...») e Vittorio Zucconi («Sangue, torture e integralismo»); persino eminenti prelati criticano il realismo del film, rimpiangendo la passione proletaria di Pasolini. Ma l'accusa più grave (anche se non ben circostanziata) è quella di antisemitismo: Jim Caviezel, interprete di Cristo, dirà di essersi giocato la carriera con questo film. Nonostante questo, il film incassa più di seicento milioni di dollari. Alle accuse di antisemitismo si accompagnano altri giudizi: Mel Gibson è padre di otto figli ed è sempre stato sposato con la stessa donna, un unicum, ad Hollywood. [leggi: UNA PASSIONE DI VIOLENZA E DI AMORE, clicca qui, N.d.BB]Due anni dopo Gibson sforna un altro capolavoro: Apocalypto. Ambientato nella brutale e feroce America precolombiana, narra la vicenda di Zampa di Giaguaro, che sfugge alla morte per salvare la famiglia. Alla fine del film, quando il protagonista sta per essere ucciso, ecco sbarcare dall'oceano una nave: trasporta soldati, religiosi e la croce di Cristo. [...] Oltre al tema della lotta per la famiglia, ne emerge prepotentemente un altro: quello dell'aborto. Cos'altro è il sacrificio umano praticato incessantemente dai capi del popolo Maya, se non l'uccisione di milioni e milioni di bambini? La società americana pre-cristiana è dunque quella statunitense? [...] [leggi: UNA CIVILTA' VIENE DISTRUTTA DALL'ESTERNO SOLO QUANDO SI E' GIA' CORROTTA AL SUO INTERNO, clicca qui, N.d.BB]Dall'uscita di Apocalypto, la carriera di Gibson va a rotoli. La sua immagine di padre di famiglia irreprensibile è deturpata: al suo fianco compare una giovane musicista russa ebrea Oksana Grigorieva (ma Gibson non era antisemita?), divorzia dalla moglie e va a vivere con lei. Viene fermato illegalmente da un poliziotto (alla presenza di telecamere) mentre è alla guida in stato di ebbrezza: si lascia scappare frasi antisemite («Gli ebrei sono responsabili di tutte le guerre del mondo»). Ha altri progetti cinematografici (un film su Giuda Maccabeo - ma Gibson non era antisemita? - ed un altro sugli insorgenti italiani), ma rinuncia: erano film - dirà - che interessavano solo a me. Solo pochi amici gli restano vicino (Robert Downey Junior e l'attivista lesbica Jody Foster - ma Gibson non era intollerante?). Nel 2010, a carriera ormai distrutta, viene lasciato dalla musicista russa, che lo denuncia per averle detto al telefono frasi razziste (registrate su nastro). Da quel momento Gibson recita in alcuni (anche ottimi) film d'azione: Fuori controllo, Viaggio in paradiso, Machete Kills, Blood father; come autore sembra finito. [leggi: DEBOLEZZE UMANE NELLA VITA DI MEL GIBSON, clicca qui, N.d.BB]LA BATTAGLIA DI HACKSAW RIDGE (2017)Ed eccoci arrivati al febbraio 2017 con la sua nuova prova da regista: La Battaglia di Hacksaw Ridge. È la storia vera di Desmond Doss, un obiettore di coscienza che si arruola volontario durante la Seconda Guerra Mondiale. Non vuole toccare le armi per motivi religiosi (è avventista del settimo giorno); ma non si sente da meno rispetto agli altri giovani che decidono di servire il loro paese in guerra. La sua posizione non viene compresa e, considerato un vigliacco, durante l'addestramento è fatto oggetto di insulti, punizioni e violenze. Viene addirittura incriminato per aver disobbedito agli ordini, rischia il carcere, ma non rinuncia ai suoi principi. Alla fine, grazie all'intervento del padre, alcolizzato e violento, traumatizzato dalla Prima Guerra Mondiale, viene riconosciuto il suo status di soldato obiettore di coscienza ed assegnato alla sanità militare. I compagni e gli ufficiali continuano a considerarlo un vigliacco, ma Doss riuscirà a dimostrare il contrario. Viene inviato nel Pacifico e partecipa alla battaglia di Okinawa; viene assegnato a Hawksaw Ridge, una impervia montagna controllata dai giapponesi. Il primo giorno di battaglia è cruento, ma vede la vittoria degli statunitensi; il giorno seguente, però, i giapponesi riconquistano la posizione. É il momento della ritirata, ma non per tutti: Doss resterà in cima, recupererà uno ad uno i suoi compagni calandoli con delle corde, sarà l'ultimo a calarsi dopo aver salvato commilitoni e giapponesi feriti. Una cinquantina, disse Doss; un centinaio, lo corressero i suoi compagni (alla fine gli vennero attribuiti 75 salvataggi, una via di mezzo).Del film notiamo l'eccellente tecnica e l'ottima recitazione, soprattutto del protagonista Andrew Garfield (al quale era stato «sconsigliato» di lavorare con Gibson). Colpiscono anche la castità del fidanzamento di Doss (quando mai, nei film hollywoodiani?) e i dialoghi, che rimandano ai valori più nobili. Il film gronda eroismo e fede religiosa: ogni volta che Doss cala un compagno dalla montagna, si ferma a pregare: «Fammene trovare ancora uno». Gibson chiarisce che la vera forza non è quella dei muscoli (la recluta culturista «Hollywood» - sottile ironia - non si distingue, in battaglia, per il coraggio), ma quella interiore: la virtù della fortezza.E torna, nuovamente, il tema della guerra. Il realismo è terribile e spettacolare: la guerra è morte, dolore e sofferenza. [...] Gibson, pur avendo firmato film di guerra, non è mai stato un guerrafondaio; ma con questo film sembra compiere un passo ulteriore. «Non mi sembra una brutta cosa rimettere insieme qualche pezzo del mondo, mentre sono tutti così intenti a farlo a pezzi», dice Desmond Doss. Lo pensa anche Gibson. [...]Il suo messaggio è chiaro: la guerra non è di per sé eroismo. L'eroismo è quello di chi - anche in guerra - è disposto a donare la vita per i propri fratelli, anche se di un'altra nazione. L'eroismo è quello di Doss, che salva uno ad uno i propri compagni e i propri nemici, e che prega «Fammene trovare ancora uno». Non per ucciderlo: per salvarlo.

Full Text of ReadingsThursday of the Twenty-fifth Week in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 452All podcast readings are produced by the USCCB and are from the Catholic Lectionary, based on the New American Bible and approved for use in the United States _______________________________________The Saint of the day is Saint Lorenzo Ruiz and CompanionsLorenzo was born in Manila of a Chinese father and a Filipino mother, both Christians. Thus he learned Chinese and Tagalog from them, and Spanish from the Dominicans whom he served as altar boy and sacristan. He became a professional calligrapher, transcribing documents in beautiful penmanship. He was a full member of the Confraternity of the Holy Rosary under Dominican auspices. He married and had two sons and a daughter. Lorenzo's life took an abrupt turn when he was accused of murder. Nothing further is known except the statement of two Dominicans that “he was sought by the authorities on account of a homicide to which he was present or which was attributed to him.” At that time, three Dominican priests, Antonio Gonzalez, Guillermo Courtet, and Miguel de Aozaraza, were about to sail to Japan in spite of a violent persecution there. With them was a Japanese priest, Vicente Shiwozuka de la Cruz, and a layman named Lazaro, a leper. Lorenzo, having taken asylum with them, was allowed to accompany them. But only when they were at sea did he learn that they were going to Japan. They landed at Okinawa. Lorenzo could have gone on to Formosa, but, he reported, “I decided to stay with the Fathers, because the Spaniards would hang me there.” In Japan they were soon found out, arrested, and taken to Nagasaki. The site of wholesale bloodshed when the atomic bomb was dropped had known tragedy before. The 50,000 Catholics who once lived there were dispersed or killed by persecution. They were subjected to an unspeakable kind of torture: After huge quantities of water were forced down their throats, they were made to lie down. Long boards were placed on their stomachs and guards then stepped on the ends of the boards, forcing the water to spurt violently from mouth, nose and ears. The superior, Fr. Gonzalez, died after some days. Both Fr. Shiwozuka and Lazaro broke under torture, which included the insertion of bamboo needles under their fingernails. But both were brought back to courage by their companions. In Lorenzo's moment of crisis, he asked the interpreter, “I would like to know if, by apostatizing, they will spare my life.” The interpreter was noncommittal, but in the ensuing hours Lorenzo felt his faith grow strong. He became bold, even audacious, with his interrogators. The five were put to death by being hanged upside down in pits. Boards fitted with semi-circular holes were fitted around their waists and stones put on top to increase the pressure. They were tightly bound, to slow circulation and prevent a speedy death. They were allowed to hang for three days. By that time Lorenzo and Lazaro were dead. Still alive, the three priests were then beheaded. In 1987, Pope John Paul II canonized these six and 10 others: Asians and Europeans, men and women, who spread the faith in the Philippines, Formosa, and Japan. Lorenzo Ruiz is the first canonized Filipino martyr. The liturgical feast of Saint Lorenzo Ruiz and Companions is celebrated on September 28. Reflection We ordinary Christians of today—how would we stand up in the circumstances these martyrs faced? We sympathize with the two who temporarily denied the faith. We understand Lorenzo's terrible moment of temptation. But we see also the courage—inexplainable in human terms—which surged from their store of faith. Martyrdom, like ordinary life, is a miracle of grace. Saint of the Day, Copyright Franciscan Media

His other popular books include 3 Nights in August, A Prayer for the City, and Father's Day, a memoir about his cross-country journey with his extraordinary son. A contributing editor for Vanity Fair and a sports columnist for The Daily Beast, Bissinger is a longtime contributor to The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and The Philadelphia Inquirer, among other periodicals. The Mosquito Bowl tells the story of two United States Marine regiments that play a bloody game of football on the eve of the WWII invasion of Okinawa, a battle from which many of the players would not return. Renowned for his ''signature blend of deep reportage and character-driven storytelling (The New York Times Book Review),'' Mark Bowden is the author of 15 bestselling books of investigative journalism, including Blackhawk Down, adapted by Ridley Scott into a popular film; Killing Pablo, winner of the Overseas Press Club's Cornelius Ryan Award for book of the year; The Three Battles of Wanat, a collection of his best long-form essays; and Hue 1968, the story of the Vietnam War's bloodiest battle as told by participants from both sides.  (recorded 9/14/2022)

Welcome to Take Your Time, a Persona 5 podcast by Jonathon Dornbush and Tom Marks in which the duo will be playing Persona 5 Strikers in sort of real time, but not quite as in real time as our Persona 5 Royal playthrough. Tom and Jonathon continue their P5 Strikers podcast series with episode 7, focused on August 13 - 17, as the Phantom Thieves take off on the next leg of their Strikers journey through Japan. After reading some comments and answering Tom's peculiar pop quiz question, Tom and Jonathon break down the story-heavy next chapter of their Persona 5 Strikers playthrough, discussing the events of a brief stop in Kyoto, and the gang's trip to Okinawa. First, the podcast discusses Strikers' deviation from its prior formula as we dig not only onto the Phantom Thieves' ongoing Persona 5 sequel story, but also learn a bit more about Strikers newcomer Zenkichi. We dig into the personal revelations Strikers offers about his work, his family life, and the intersection of the two, as we meet a Phantom Phreak, share a nice meal, and bring just a bit of happiness to Zenkichi's tough days. Then, we discuss the first part of the Phantom Thieves' trip to Okinawa, including their boat trip, arrival and somewhat strange investigation as they look for Madicce's hidden lab, and, as you would hope for on Persona 5's summer vacation road trip sequel, a day at the beach. Tom also offers his pop quiz question and more.

It still seemed like a normal business day on the island of Okinawa for Tim's grandfather. His family had previously fled to the main land because of the war, but he missed them very much. A friend spontaneously told him, "there is a secret boat that leaves our island tonight. Why don't you take it and go to the main land to visit your wife and children? You haven't seen them for so long." So he left his store and took the secret boat a couple of hours later.Little did Tim's grandfather know that that very night, Japan's WWII opponents would start a devastating bombing attack on Okinawa and entirely level the city and his business. His store was completely destroyed, but his life got saved in miraculous ways.This story is just one of many that Tim Aka shares during this episode.

As part of Sequel September, we're covering the second installment in The Karate Kid franchise ... Part II! From 1986, this movie picks up right where the first movie left off, yes that's right -  in the boy's locker room! Danielson is fresh off the mats after crane kicking the shit out of Johnny Lawrence! However, Part II takes us on a journey to Okinawa, to wade through a love triangle Mr. Miyagi left behind 40 years ago! Lucky us! So this movie is a bit quieter than the other two in the franchise and has a bit lesson action (though it does have a typhoon!), but pretty much the same amount of Danielson getting his ass whooped by karate assholes and another tricky move by Mr. Miyagi (ooo the drum!). We'll talk a lot about Cobra Kai and the character reversal good old Chozen gets, induct Danielson into the Sweetie Club once and for all, and come to the conclusion that Mr. Miyagi's brand of karate should be called "How To Dupe Some Kid To Do Your Household Chores".

The strategic importance of Taiwan Should China take control of Taiwan it would represent a breach of the Western Pacific strategic line the US holds from South Korea to Japan through Okinawa to the Philippines. Although the US no longer has military forces on Taiwan, it counts Taiwan as a staunch ally and sells military equipment, including F16s, to Taiwan. This would enable China to more easily project power, both military and economic, throughout Southwest Asia and the western Pacific. Japan would almost certainly feel more threatened, thus remilitarizing. Japan and China have fought multiple wars over the last centuries. With that history it is likely that we would see greater instability in Asia.© William L. Enyart 2022 Email: bill@billenyart.comAudio production by Tom Calhoun, paguytom.com

On this episode we have Blake Flannery who spent 20 years in the Marine corps, starting as an 0311 and then transitioning to 0321-reconnaissance Marine.  Enlisting in 2001, 9/11 happened while he was on Paris Island, and he ended up waiting in Kuwait to cross the border to Iraq.  working his way through Iraq and into Baghdad he made his way to Saddam's palace, as well as having experienced Fallujah.  We discuss a bit of how the military tends to have 1 plan set, and then it changes through a few examples. His time spent in Recon was during a period when MARSOC was being stood up and he talks about how that effected the Recon units and how the Corps ultimately brought the force units back. He also talks about having to try and hitch a ride after just getting to Okinawa to get to Camp Schwab. As always, we talk about the transition to civilian life, and dealing with the idea of trying to find a job.  look him up on socials to see what he's doing with his training now.

After the massive success of John G. Avildsen's first Karate Kid, this even-more-successful sequel has Ralph Macchio & Pat Morita in Okinawa. The focus (oh, that infamous focus) in Karate Kid Part II is on Miyagi and the life he ran away from decades earlier. Don't get hung up on the name of the movie though. Daniel is barely even necessary this time. Although make no mistake, these 2 characters are iconic and the 2 stars are always good in their roles.   Story-wise, this isn't a complete rehash of the first film, but they sure didn't avoid hitting a ton of the same beats. This time though you get the improbable ice chop, the puzzling drum technique and not one but two love stories balanced with a running theme of dangerous rivals who are more blood-thirsty than even the Cobra Kai guys. This is far from a perfect sports flick, but it's entertaining and sometimes even touching. So honk a sitting duck's nose rather than beat him to death with your bare hands as we dig into the many corners of The Karate Kid Part II, listener-san.   If you like, you can chop a few tweets at us (@moviefiend51 and @scoringatmovies) or you can email us (scoringatthemovies@gmail.com)

James Harvey III was born in Montclair, New Jersey, in July 1923. When he was a young teen, his family moved to Nuangola Station, Pennsylvania. Harvey excelled in high school, becoming senior class president and valedictorian. In April 1943, the Army drafted Harvey as an engineer. He previously showed interest in cadet training but the Army denied him. He reapplied and completed the Cadet Training Exam at Bolling Field, Washington D.C. Harvey attended flight training at Moton Field, Alabama. He went to flying school at Tuskegee Army Air Field, where he graduated as a second lieutenant in October 1944. Harvey served with the 99th Fighter Squadron where he flew P-47s at Godman Field, Kentucky. Before Harvey's unit could deploy to Europe or fly support for the push into Japan in Okinawa, the war ended. After the U.S. military officially ended segregation in 1949, Harvey's squadron disbanded. Harvey joined the 332nd Fighter Group and was one of three pilots in the first U.S. Air Force Weapons Meet at Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada. His unit placed first in the competition and Harvey earned the nickname “Top Gun.” However, the Air Force did not recognize the victory until 1995. In an interview with the American Veterans Center, Harvey recalled their performance during the meet. “We led from start to finish.” After the competition, Harvey served at Misawa Air Base, Japan, where he flew F-80 Shooting Stars. In 1950, Harvey became the first black jet fighter pilot to fly in Korean airspace and received a Distinguished Flying Cross and multiple other Air Medals after inflicting significant damage to enemy forces during inclement weather conditions. Throughout his time in the military, Harvey received 11 different Air Medals due to his numerous engagements with enemy forces. Before retiring from the military in May 1965, Harvey served as a flight commander, a flight safety officer, a test pilot, an assistant group operations officer and a battle staff training officer for the commanding general of the North American Aerospace Defense Command. He left the service after 22 years as a lieutenant colonel. Harvey currently resides in Denver, Colorado, and is one of the few remaining members of the Tuskegee Airmen.
