On today's special live edition of the Locked On FLORIDA Panthers Podcast, Armando Velez(@Mandoman12) is riding solo to discuss the Panthers' 7-5 win in regulation against the Boston Bruins in Game 6. Panthers were overwhelming the Bruins early and often on their forecheck causing them to overthink and Panthers with their quick speed led to a lead in the first period. They went into the second and third period with leads, but Boston never made it easy. Florida led multiple times and Boston took the lead twice. Boston had 3 PPG's and 1 SHG on the night, and the Panthers still found a way to get a win. behind Sergei Bobrovsky making key saves on the night(epsecially on a Pastrnak breakaway). Mattew Tkachuk got two goals on the night and Aleksander Barkov got his first goal of the series. The Panthers gave Bruins fits and with consistent turnovers on their breakouts, Panthers were able to make Linus Ullmark unconfortable. The Panthers are now heading to Boston for a winner-take-all Game 7 Sunday. How do we feel heading into that game? We give our feelings and more on today's live edition of the Locked On FLORIDA Panthers Podcast: Your Team, Every Day. Follow & Subscribe on all Podcast platforms…

IndyCar is back on the dockett for Round 2 of the series in Texas, and we got a genuine all-time classic for the PPG 375. No seriously, Texas came through for the first time since... 2016?! Josef Newgarden and Pato O'Ward led nearly 90% of the racing laps as they went back and forth relentlessly, with overtakes, two wide running, and even Pato trying to lap the field at one point. And at the end, we have an intense decider as Alex Palou on older tyres got in the mix, as did David Malukas and Romain Grosjean, even if the latter ended the race with 2 laps to go after hitting the wall! But despite one of the series best races in years, we still left Texas with a sad feeling in our stomachs as it was revealed that Pato comped hundreds of tickets for essentially his home race, the TV ratings were down a good 10% and general bad vibes were around the series, as it struggles to look for genuine growth. Dre, RJ and Cam got into a pretty heated discussion about the future of the series! It's a wild edition of Motorsport101!

On today's edition of the Locked On FLORIDA Panthers Podcast, Armando Velez(@Mandoman12) brings in Nick Fairbanks(@prudentia0) to discuss the Panthers 7-2 slaughter of the Ottawa Senators. The Senators were dominant in the possession metrics all game, but Alex Lyon was the difference in this one once again. Lyon went 56/58 on the night including 12 saves on the PK. He joins some pretty good company as far as goaltenders to make 50+ saves in a single game. The Panthers flipped the scripts from their most recent matchup against the Senators. After giving up 3 PPG's in their previous matchup, the Panthers got 3 of their own on Thursday night(3/6 on the PP) and even got a short handed goal by Aleksander Barkov. This game had a lot of chippiness, game misconducts, and multiple players crashing to the net at Alex Lyon. The guys discuss how this game got out of control, who starts in net if there is a healthy Sergei Bobrovsky and preview Saturday night's game against Washington on today's edition of the Locked On FLORIDA Panthers Podcast: Your Team, Every Day.

On today's edition of the Locked On FLORIDA Panthers Podcast, Armando Velez(@Mandoman12) brings in Jacob Winans(@JacobWinans8) for another edition of Winans Wednesday. The guys discuss the Tuesday night's game being the Battle of the Goalies: Alex Lyon vs. Devon Levi. The guys discuss how the Panthers were able to match the Buffalo Sabres in the special teams battle by getting a PPG of their own after Buffalo took the lead on the man advantage. The game was filled with a lot of penalties early on where only 11:45 was spent at 5-on-5. Despite very little goals, it was a very high paced game where the Panthers were creating chances due to taking away shooting lanes and committed to blocking shots, which at times, led to rushes. Alex Lyon comes up huge once again as he went 39/40 on the night and has gone 8 straight periods without allowing a goal at even strength. Speaking of Even strength, we discuss on Tuesday's show about winning that battle.

Part of building up to this level over the years involved using a lot of aftermarket parts that would support the required power levels, but were more suited for drag racing and dyno queen runs (no offence intended!), leading to some unexpected development requirements all for the better.The car uses a MoTeC traction control system via the M150 ECU to help keep the full boost from 3500rpm under control, and a Bosch Motorsport ABS system at the other end of the straights which has had the biggest impact on car confidence so far. So what next? One of the biggest future goals is to reduce weight. To get where it is at 2950lbs (1228kg) other than general parts stripping, the car has shed 40lbs thanks to carbon fibre body panels from Anderson Composites and a whopping 60lbs from the removal of the stock wiring harness some years ago. Adding a paddle shift setup to the PPG 6-speed sequential is also high on the list along with suspension data solutions and some tidying up of the impressive Verus Engineering & Feras developed aero package.At the time of filming the car holds at least 22 track records.Want to learn how to tune EFI?

Locked On Penguins - Daily Podcast On The Pittsburgh Penguins
This team can never win a game the easy way, huh? Hunter starts this episode with an ode to Evgeni Malkin as he delivered one of the goals of the season for the Pittsburgh Penguins. He analyzes how it was vintage Malkin when he wanted the puck at the end of the game and then made no mistake with it when he fired it blocker side. Hunter also looks at how terrible of a giveaway it was from Anthony Mantha and why you can't do that when an all-time great is on the ice. Hunter then touches on how loud PPG was since he was there to see it and why this felt like a playoff atmosphere for the first time all season. After that, Hunter brings up the depth scoring and why it came up super clutch on the first two goals since the big guns weren't able to finish their chances...yet. He praises Ryan Poehling for being one of the team's best depth players while also wondering where in the heck that version of Chad Ruhwedel has been all season. Hunter then brings up Jake Guentzel and why he continues to have a very underappreciated season before wondering why this team cannot hold a lead. Is it because they get too tight? Do they want to run and gun throughout every game? Finally, he discusses why this win was so big standings-wise before previewing what's to come on Tuesday when the Penguins play the Detroit Red Wings. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

On today's edition of the Locked On FLORIDA Panthers Podcast, Armando Velez(@Mandoman12) is here to discuss how the Florida Panthers can't seem to help themselves in the last 3 games(0-3-0). Florida on Saturday night got off to the fastest of starts just only allowing 3 SOG in the first period(1 at 5-on-5), but the last 40 minutes belonged to the New York Rangers as puck management was the issue for Florida. The Cats kept the big guns of New York off the scoresheet(that's if you don't count the own goal that was credited to Patrick Kane), but it was the kid line for the New York Rangers that the Panthers allowed to get going. The Panthers in the last 3 games have been great at killing penalties(only allowing 1 PPG); if it's the PK that has a stretch of playing well, then it's another issue that arises. The 5-on-5 play for the Panthers has been trouble over the last 3 games, a lot doing with the constant line shuffles due to Sam Bennett's injury. The Panthers now are at a point with 9 games remaining, this 4-game road trip is do-or-die, and it all starts Monday Night in Canada's Capital.

In this episode I chat with Sindhoor Pangal. Sindhoor is a canine behaviour consultant, a canine myotherapist and an engineer by qualification. She is a TEDx speaker and the author of the book, Dog Knows. Sindhoor quit her corporate life to pursue a career in working with dogs, after her dog Nishi met with an accident and needed special physical and emotional care. She worked as a behaviour and myotherapy consultant for companion dogs, but soon discovered her passion for studying free living dogs in India. Her insights have been published in the IAABC journal and the PPG blog in the US, was presented at the PDTE summit in the UK and was mentioned in the book Canine Confidential by Dr. Marc Bekoff and a National Geographic Bookazine called the Genius of dogs. She is currently pursuing her masters in Anthrozoology from Exeter University (UK) and is also the principal and director of BHARCS. BHARCS offers a UK accredited level 4 diploma on canine behaviour and applied ethology. While she wears many hats, Sindhoor's favourite role has been being a mommy to two amazing dogs - Nishi (who recently passed away) and Cheeru, who she considers her inspiration and her greatest teachers.We chat about what her studies of street dogs in India has taught her about canine behavior and how what she has learned can help us to be better pet parents to our own pups. She also touches on the concept and importance of decolonization when it comes to our companion animals.Helpful Links:Donate To Care:CARE Shelter for donations : https://charlies-care.com/.

This month on Episode 46 of Discover CircRes, host Cynthia St. Hilaire highlights four original research articles featured in the March 3 and March 17th issues of Circulation Research. This episode also features an interview with Dr Andrew Hughes and Dr Jessilyn Dunn about their review, Wearable Devices in Cardiovascular Medicine. Article highlights: Delgobo, et al. Deep Phenotyping Heart-Specific Tregs Sun, et al. Inhibition of Fap Promotes Cardiac Repair After MI Sun, et al. Endosomal PI3Kγ Regulates Hypoxia Sensing Johnson, et al. Hypoxemia Induces Minimal Cardiomyocyte Division Cindy St. Hilaire: Hi, and welcome to Discover CircRes, the podcast of the American Heart Association's Journal, Circulation Research. I'm your host, Dr Cindy St. Hilaire from the Vascular Medicine Institute at the University of Pittsburgh, and today I'm going to share four articles selected from the March 3rd and March 17th issues of CircRes. I'm also going to have a discussion with Dr Andrew Hughes and Dr Jessilyn Dunn about their review, Wearable Devices in Cardiovascular Medicine. And the Review is also featured in our March 3rd issue. Cindy St. Hilaire: First, the highlights. The first article I'm going to present is Myocardial Milieu Favors Local Differentiation of Regulatory T-Cells. The first author is Murilo Delgobo and the corresponding author is Gustavo Campos Ramos. After myocardial infarction, the release of autoantigens from the damaged heart cells activates local and infiltrating immune cells such as the T-cell. Studies in mice have shown that fragments of the muscle protein myosin can act as autoantigens, and these myosin fragments are the dominant driver of the T-cell response. But how do these myosin specific T-cells behave in the damaged heart to drive inflammation and repair is unknown. To find out, Delgobo and colleagues studied endogenous myosin specific T-cells, as well as those transferred into recipient mice. They found, whether exogenously supplied or endogenously created, the myosin specific T-cells that accumulated in the animals' infarcted hearts tended to adopt an immunosuppressive T-regulatory phenotype. Strikingly, even if the exogenous cells were differentiated into inflammatory TH-17 cells prior to transfer, a significant proportion of them were still reprogrammed into T-regs within the heart. Although cells pre-differentiated into an inflammatory TH-17 phenotype were less inclined to change after the transfer, the results nevertheless indicate that, by and large, the infarcted heart promotes T-cell reprogramming to quell inflammation and drive repair. Yet exactly how the heart does this is a question for future studies. Cindy St. Hilaire: The next article I'm going to present is titled Inhibition of FAP Promotes Cardiac Repair by Stabilizing BNP. The first authors of the study are Yuxi Sun and Mengqiu Ma, and the corresponding author is Rui Yue, and they are from Tongji University. After myocardial infarction, there needs to be a balance of recovery processes to protect the tissue. Fibrosis, for example, acts like an immediate bandaid to hold the damaged heart muscle together, but fibrosis can limit contractile function. Similarly, angiogenesis and sufficient revascularization is required to promote survival of cardiomyocytes within the ischemic tissue and protect heart function. To better understand the balance between fibrotic and angiogenic responses, Sun and colleagues examined the role of fibroblasts activated protein, or FAP, which is dramatically upregulated in damaged hearts, and brain natriuretic peptide, or BNP, which promotes angiogenesis in the heart. In this study, they found that genetic deletion or pharmacological inhibition of FAP in mice reduces cardiac fibrosis and improves angiogenesis and heart function after MI. Such benefits are not seen if BNP or its receptor, NRP-1, are lacking. The in vitro experiments revealed that FAP's protease activity degrades BNP, thus inhibiting the latter's angiogenic activity. Interestingly, while FAP is upregulated in the heart, its levels drop in the blood, showing that BNP inhibition is localized. Together, these results suggest that blocking FAP's activity in the heart after MI could be a possible strategy for protecting the muscle's function. Cindy St. Hilaire: The next article I want to present is Hypoxia Sensing of Beta-Adrenergic Receptor is Regulated by Endosomal PI-3 Kinase Gamma. The first author of this study is Yu Sun, and the corresponding author is Sathyamangla Naga Prasad. Hypoxia is the most proximate acute stress encountered by the heart during an ischemic event. Hypoxia triggers dysfunction of the beta-adrenergic receptors, beta-1AR and beta-2AR, which are critical regulators of cardiac function. Under normoxic conditions, activation of PI3K-gamma by beta-adrenergic receptors leads to feedback regulation of the receptor by hindering its dephosphorylation through inhibition of protein phosphatase 2A or PP2A. Although it is known that ischemia reduces beta-adrenergic receptor function, the impact of hypoxia on interfering with this PI3K feedback loop was unknown. Using in vitro and in vivo techniques, this group found that activation of PI3K-gamma underlies hypoxia sensing mechanisms in the heart. Exposing PI3K-gamma knockout mice to acute hypoxia resulted in preserved cardiac function and reduced beta-adrenergic receptor phosphorylation. And this was due to a normalized beta-2AR associated PP2A activity, thus uncovering a unique role for PI3K-gamma in hypoxia sensing and cardiac function. Similarly, challenging wild-type mice post hypoxia with dobutamine resulted in an impaired cardiac response that was normalized in the PI3K-gamma knockout mice. These data suggests that preserving beta-adrenergic resensitization by targeting the PI3K-gamma pathway would maintain beta-adrenergic signaling and cardiac function, thereby permitting the heart to meet the metabolic demands of the body following ischemia. Cindy St. Hilaire: The last article I want to highlight is Systemic Hypoxia Induces Cardiomyocyte Hypertrophy and Right Ventricle Specific Induction of Proliferation. First author of this study is Jaslyn Johnson, and the corresponding author is Steven Houser, and they're at Temple University. The cardiac hypoxia created by myocardial infarction leads to the death of the heart tissue, including the cardiomyocytes. While some procedures such as reperfusion therapy prevent some cardiomyocyte death, true repair of the infarcted heart requires that dead cells be replaced. There have been many studies that have attempted new approaches to repopulate the heart with new myocytes. However, these approaches have had only marginal success. A recent study suggested that systemic hypoxemia in adult male mice could induce cardiac monocytes to proliferate. Building on this observation, Johnson and colleagues wanted to identify the mechanisms that induced adult cardiomyocyte cell cycle reentry and wanted to determine whether this hypoxemia could also induce cardiomyocyte proliferation in female mice. Mice were kept in hypoxic conditions for two weeks, and using methods to trace cell proliferation in-vivo, the group found that hypoxia induced cardiac hypertrophy in both the left ventricle and the right ventricle in the myocytes of the left ventricle and of the right ventricle. However, the left ventricle monocytes lengthened while the RV monocytes widened and lengthened. Hypoxia induced an increase in the number of right ventricular cardiomyocytes, but did not affect left ventricular monocyte proliferation in male or in female mice. RNA sequencing showed upregulation of cell cycle genes which promote the G1 to S phase transition in hypoxic mice, as well as a downregulation of cullen genes, which are the scaffold proteins related to the ubiquitin ligase complexes. There was significant proliferation of non monocytes in mild cardiac fibrosis in the hypoxic mice that did not disrupt cardiac function. Male and female mice exhibited similar gene expression patterns following hypoxia. Thus, systemic hypoxia induced a global hypertrophic stress response that was associated with increased RV proliferation, while LV monocytes did not show increased proliferation. These results confirm previous reports that hypoxia can induce cardiomyocyte cell cycle activity in-vivo, and also show that this hypoxia induced proliferation also occurs in the female mice. Cindy St. Hilaire: With me today for our interview, I have Dr Andrew Hughes and Dr Jessilyn Dunn, and they're from Vanderbilt University Medical Center. And they're here to discuss the review article that they helped co-author called Wearable Devices in Cardiovascular Medicine. And just as a side note, the corresponding author, Evan Brittain, unfortunately just wasn't able to join us due to clinical service, but they're going to help dissect and discuss this Review with us. Thank you both so much for joining me today. Andy, can you just tell us a little bit about yourself? Andy Hughes: Yeah, thank you, Cindy. I'm Andy Hughes. I'm a third year medicine resident at Vanderbilt University who is currently on an NIH supported research year this year. And then will be applying to cardiology fellowships coming up in the upcoming cycle. Cindy St. Hilaire: Great, thank you. And Jessilyn, I said you are from Vanderbilt. I know you're from Duke. It was Evan and Andy at Vanderbilt. Jessilyn, tell us about yourself. Jessilyn Dunn: Thanks. I am an Assistant Professor at Duke. I have a joint appointment between biomedical engineering and biostatistics and bioinformatics. The work that my lab does is mainly centered on digital health technologies in developing what we call digital biomarkers, using data from often consumer wearables to try to detect early signs of health abnormalities and ultimately try to develop interventions. Cindy St. Hilaire: Thank you. We're talking about wearable devices today, and obviously the first thing I think most of us think about are the watch-like ones, the ones you wear on your wrists. But there's really a whole lot more out there. It's not just Apple Watches and Fitbits and the like. Can you just give us a quick summary of all these different types of devices and how they're classified? Jessilyn Dunn: Yeah, absolutely. We have a wide variety of different sensors that can be useful. A lot of times, we like to think about them in terms of the types of properties that they measure. So mechanical properties like movement, electrical properties like electrical activity of the heart. We have optical sensors. And so, a lot of the common consumer wearables that we think about contain these different types of sensors. A good example that we can think about is your consumer smartwatch, like an Apple Watch or a Fitbit or a Garmin device where it has something called an accelerometer that can measure movement. And oftentimes, that gets converted into step counts. And then it may also have an optical sensor that can be used to measure heart rate in a particular method called PPG, or photoplethysmography. And then some of the newer devices also have the ability to take an ECG, so you can actually measure electrical activity as well as the optical based PPG heart rate measurement. These are some of the simpler components that make up the more complex devices that we call wearables. Cindy St. Hilaire: And how accurate are the measurements? You did mention three of the companies, and I know there's probably even more, and there's also the clinical grade at-home ECG machines versus the one in the smartwatch. How accurate are the measurements between companies? And we also hear recent stories about somebody's Apple Watch calling 911 because they think they're dead, things like that. Obviously, there's proprietary information involved, but how accurate are these devices and how accurate are they between each other? Jessilyn Dunn: This is a really interesting question and we've done quite a bit of work in my lab on this very topic, all the way from what does it mean for something to be accurate? Because we might say, "Well, the more accurate, the better," but then we can start to think about, "Well, how accurate do we need something to be in order to make a clinical decision based off of that?" And if it costs significantly more to make a device super, super accurate, but we don't need it to be that accurate to make useful decisions, then it actually might not be serving people well to try to get it to that extreme level of accuracy. So there are a lot of trade-offs, and I think that's a tough thing to think about in the circumstances, is these trade-offs between the accuracy and, I don't know, the generalizability or being able to apply this to a lot of people. That being said, it also depends on the circumstances of use. When we think about something like step counts, for example, if you're off by a hundred step counts and you're just trying to get a general view of your step counts, it's not that much of a problem. But if we're talking about trying to detect an irregular heart rhythm, it can be very bad to either miss something that's abnormal or to call something abnormal that's not and have people worried. We've been working with the Digital Medicine Society to develop this framework that we call V3, which is verification, analytic validation and clinical validation. And these are the different levels of analysis or evaluation that you can do on these devices to determine how fit for purpose are they. Given the population we're trying to measure in and given what the goal of the measurement is, does the device do the job? And what's also interesting about this topic is that the FDA has been evolving how they think about these types of devices because there's, in the past, been this very clear distinction between wellness devices and medical devices. But the problem is that a lot of these devices blur that line. And so, I think we're going to see more changes in the way that the FDA is overseeing and potentially regulating things like this as well. Cindy St. Hilaire: These consumer-based devices have started early on as the step counters. When did they start to bridge into the medical sphere? When did that start to peak the interest of clinicians and researchers? Jessilyn Dunn: Yeah, sure. What's interesting is if we think back to accelerometers, these have been used prior to the existence of mobile phones. These really are mechanical sensors that could be used to count steps. And when we think about the smartwatch in the form that we most commonly think of today, probably looking back to about 2014 is when ... maybe between 2012, 2014 is when we saw these devices really hitting the market more ... Timing for when the devices that we know as our typical consumer smartwatch today was around 2012 to 2014. And those were things that were counting steps and then the next generation of that added in the PPG or photoplethysmography sensor. That's that green light when we look on the back of our watch that measures heart rate. And so, thinking back to the early days, probably Jawbone, there was a watch called Basis, the Intel Basis watch. Well, it was Basis and then got acquired by Intel. Fitbit was also an early joining the market, but that was really the timing. Cindy St. Hilaire: How good are these devices at actually changing behavior? We know we're really good at tracking our steps now and maybe monitoring our heartbeat or our oxygen levels. How good are they at changing behavior though? Do we know yet? Andy Hughes: Yeah, that's a great question and certainly a significant area of ongoing research right now with physical activity interventions. Things that we've seen right now is that simple interventions that use the wearable devices alone may not be as effective as multifaceted interventions. And what I mean by that is interventions that use the smartwatch but may be coupled with another component, whether that is health education or counseling or more complex interventions that use gamification or just in time adaptive interventions. And gamification really takes things to another level because that integrates components, competition or support or collaboration and really helps to build upon features of behaviors that we know have an increased likelihood of sustaining activity. With that being said, that is one of the challenges of physical activity interventions, is the sustainability of their improvements over the course of months to years. And something that we have seen is the effects do typically decrease over time, but there is work on how do we integrate all of these features to develop interventions that can help to sustain the results more effectively. So we have seen some improvement, but finding ways to sustain the effects of physical activity is certainly an area of ongoing research. Cindy St. Hilaire: I know it's funny that even as adults we love getting those gold stars or the circle completions. All of these devices, whether it's smartwatches like we're just talking about, or the other things for cardiac rehabilitation, they're generating a ton of data. What is happening with all this data? Who's actually analyzing it? How is it stored and what's that flow through from getting from the patient's body to the room where their physician is looking at it? Andy Hughes: And that is certainly a challenge right now that is limiting the widespread adoption of these devices into routine clinical care is, as Jessilyn mentioned. The wearables generate a vast amount of data, and right now, we need to identify and develop a way as clinicians to sort through all of the noise in order to be able to identify the information that is clinically meaningful and worthy of action without significantly increasing the workload. And a few of the barriers that will be necessary in order to reach that point is, one, finding ways to integrate the wearables' data into the electronic health record and also developing some machine learning algorithms or ways with which we can use the computational power of those technologies to be able to identify when there is meaningful data within all of the vast data that comes from wearables. So it's somewhere that certainly we need to get to for these devices to reach their full clinical potential, but we are limited right now by a few of those challenges. Jessilyn Dunn: I was just going to say, I will add on to what Andy was saying about this idea behind digital biomarkers because this fits really nicely with this idea that giving people this huge data deluge is not helpful, but if we had a single metric where we can say, "Here's the digital biomarker of step count, and if you're above some threshold, you're good to go. And if you're below some threshold, some intervention is needed." That's a lot of the work that we've been doing, is trying to develop what are these digital biomarkers and how can they be ingested in a really digestible way? Cindy St. Hilaire: Yeah, that's great. Regarding the clinical and the research grade devices, I know a Fitbit or Apple Watch can sometimes be used for those, but I guess I'm talking also about the other kind of more clinically oriented devices, how good is compliance and how trustable is that data? Everybody's on probably their best behavior when they're in the office with the physician or if they're on the treadmill in the cardiac lab, but home is a different story. And what don't we know about compliance when people are out of the office and the reliability of that data that's generated in that space? Andy Hughes: I think you touched on a really important point right here, and one of the potential advantages of these wearable devices is that they provide continuous long-term monitoring over the course of weeks to months to years as opposed to those erratic measurements that we get from the traditional office visits or hospitalizations where, for example, the measurements we're taking are either in a supervised environment with a six-minute walk distance, for example, or self-reported or questionnaires. So we build upon that information, but then additionally, we go beyond the observer effect where many individuals, the first week or two that you're wearing this new device, you may be more prone to increase your activity because you know that you're being monitored or you have this novel technology, but as you wear it for months to years, you outgrow those potential biases and you really can garner more comprehensive information. In terms of compliance, we can speak to some of the research studies that have either really struggled with compliance and that limits the interpretability of their results and something we'll need to address in the future, but I think that's something that can be addressed with future studies keeping in mind all of the advantages that these devices offer compared to some of the traditional measures that we have used in the past. Cindy St. Hilaire: With all this data we're collecting, whether it be biological data or even just behavioral data, have we actually learned anything new? And I mean that in terms of All Of Us study this, I don't know, it was like 5,000 patients I think, and lo and behold, it found out that higher step count correlated with lower risk for a ton of diseases, which is not exactly groundbreaking. So are we, at this point in time, learning anything new from the use of these at-home devices, or are they really just able to help us enforce what we thought we knew regarding behavior? Andy Hughes: I think these devices have certainly provided some novel insights that build upon our understanding of physical activity. Many of us can hypothesize that decreased activity would have poor outcomes on health, which the studies have demonstrated in many facets. But in reference to All Of Us study that you mentioned, I think it's interesting to look as well at some of the diagnoses or conditions that were associated with decreased activity. For example, reflux disease was also highlighted in that study, which may not have been identified if we didn't have the vast data and ability to really look for associations with diseases that have not been previously studied or thought to be related to physical activity. So I think that's one of the strong features of that database, is the wealth of knowledge that really will be hypothesis generating and help to inform future studies as we look even beyond cardiovascular conditions. Cindy St. Hilaire: One question, and you did bring it up in a bit of the discussion in your piece, is the bias that is in these devices. We know from COVID at-home pulse oximeters do not work as efficiently on darker skin. We actually know that going into bathrooms with the hand sensors that spit out the paper towels. So what kind of disparities or biases do these devices create or reinforce in the population? Jessilyn Dunn: This is such a critical topic because a lot of these issues had been discovered retrospectively because the people who were developing the technologies were not the representative of the people who were using the technologies. I think that's something that across the board we've been looking at from device development to AI implementation, which is having people who are going to be using the devices in the process of developing the technology and having voices heard from across the board. We did a detailed look when we were evaluating devices for their accuracy at this exact question of where the heart rate sensors in smartwatches use optical based technology. And there was some evidence that was also an issue for people with varying skin tones, for people with wrist tattoos or more hair or freckles. And so, we did a deep dive and the generation of devices that we looked at which would meet this study was probably about three years ago. We didn't see any discrepancies. And so, that's just one study and there are many more to be done, but I think prior to the technology development as well as once the technology comes out, keeping an eye on how that technology is doing, whether there are continued reports of failure of the technologies is really important. And there are a lot of ways that we can be vigilant about that. Cindy St. Hilaire: Yeah, that's great. And so, Andy, regarding patient populations, I can also see perhaps socioeconomic implications of this because smartwatches are not cheap. So how do we see that in terms of helping our patients? Are we going to be able to get a smartwatch through our insurance company? Andy Hughes: I think that's one of the really important next steps, is finding ways to make sure that as we advance the field of wearable devices in clinical care, that we recognize some of the existing inequities in terms of access to care, access to digital technologies that currently exist, and find ways by partnering with health insurance companies and the industry and providers and members of that community, finding ways to not only advance wearables, but use it in a way that we can decrease health disparities by really helping to increase access for these digital technologies to the underserved communities. Jessilyn Dunn: Yeah, the beauty of these technologies is that truthfully, at their core, they're very cheap. They're not difficult to develop, they're not difficult to build and disseminate. So a lot of what we think about is the infrastructure that goes around these devices. Does it require a smartphone to transfer data? Does it require internet access? What are the other pieces that need to be in place for these devices to work within an ecosystem? So this starts to get to questions beyond the devices themselves, but there's certainly a lot to think about and be done in the area of equity and ensuring that these devices can help everyone. Cindy St. Hilaire: And there's also the, I guess, ethical considerations of who owns this data. Obviously, if it's a consumable that you went and bought at Target, that's probably different than the one you're getting from your cardiologist. But who owns the data? Who has access to it? And are there any cases in the literature where an individual who's had certain measurements taken, have those measurements come back to bite them? And I guess I'm thinking of something like cardiac rehab. If a patient doesn't get up and move enough or doesn't follow their physical therapy enough or lose weight quick enough, could their insurance coverage get cut? Could their premiums go up? What safeguards are in place for these very tricky situations? Are there safeguards in place? Andy Hughes: And on the clinical side, I think it will be important to treat this information just like any other protected health information that we have as part of the electronic health record. And so, there will be inherently safeguards around that in a similar manner for how we treat other protected health information. But I think another important component of that will be a very clear consent policy when we reach the point that patients are consenting to include this information and their electronic health record, in terms of what the proposed benefits are and the potential risks associated with it, because it really is a vast amount of unique data that needs to be protected and safeguarded. And part of that comes by treating it as protected health information, but we will also need to make sure that there's a very clear consent policy that goes with it. Cindy St. Hilaire: Yeah. What do we see as the next steps in wearable devices? What do you guys see as the next big thing? I know one's coming from the actual AI and device side of things, and the other one is coming from the clinical side of things. What do each of you see as the next thing in this field? Jessilyn Dunn: I think on the device and AI side of things, I think we're thinking toward improving battery life, increasing the suite of sensors that are being added to these devices so we have a wider variety of measurements that are more representative of physiology, and then better algorithms to have better detection of sleep or activity or certain types of activity or certain types of arrhythmias. This combination of hardware and software and algorithms, I think coming together as all of these different pieces evolve will show us some really cool technology in the years to come. Andy Hughes: And I think from a clinical side, it's really twofold moving forward. I think as Jessilyn mentioned, there's a lot of novel sensor technologies that have a lot of exciting and evolving potential that we can hopefully integrate into the clinical space, but on the other hand, it's how can we use these wearable devices to enhance traditional therapies that we're already using? For example, if we take the heart failure population, is there a way that we can use the wearable devices and the existing measurements with heart rate and physical activity and blood pressure to find a way to improve remote management and safely up-titrate guideline directed medical therapy, which are medications that we know have clinical benefit. But can we augment their clinical benefit and their utility by using some of the existing technologies that we already have? And then lastly, building upon the initial studies with larger trials in more diverse generalizable populations to really enhance our understanding of the benefits that these devices may have for different cardiovascular conditions.

As our support for the unjustified war in Ukraine started over a year ago, we decided to feature a few musicians from that country in this latest edition. Zavoloka's experimental work began with that inspiration from British ‘90s electronic music, which is still a key influence for her, but she's expanded into the world of field recordings with strong driving rhythms. You won't necessarily be able to pick out the piano submerged in Endless Melancholy music, but it's there, providing a steady drone, which has a very mellow type ambience. Duo Gamardah Fungus' music and field recording work invokes the sparse open landscapes of Ukraine's rural areas, and they try to reach the enigmatic, viscous and calm atmosphere of the very cosmos. Also in our lineup are some of our favourite names spanning many decades with new releases, including Erik Wollo, Steve Roach, Robert Scott Thompson & Craig Padilla. Vintage music comes from Rolf Trostel's last album ‘Narrow Gate of Life', recorded in 1983 at a live concert in the imposing Romanesque church of St. Pere de Galligants in Girona. Rolf worked with the Hamburg musician inventor and sound tinkerer Wolfgang Palm on the PPG and tested the then-new digital wave computer 360, releasing only four albums and leaving the scene for “private life”.

Locked On Louisville - Daily Podcast On Louisville Cardinals Football & Basketball
Dalton discusses Louisville guard El Ellis being named the ACC Co-Player of the Week after averaging 27.5 PPG over the past three contests; he explains that the lack of team success shouldn't take away from what Ellis is doing individually. Next, Dalton explains why he believes JJ Traynor has been the second-best player on Louisville over the past couple weeks (scoring consistency, rebounding, etc.). Finally, he discusses that while improvements have been made over the past couple of games, that lack of consistent effort and defense still prevent the Cardinals from taking the next step.

Hello and welcome. It's Red Pill Revolution. My name is Austin Adams and thank you so much for listening today. I appreciate it. We're gonna jump right into it. We have some very interesting articles that we're gonna discuss from current events, and then we are going to talk all about the topic of the week, which is this week is going to be the education system and the industrialization of the education system more primarily. So we're gonna go back and talk about actually when the Amer Modern American education system came to be. What it is today, how it came to be, what it is today, who the money was provided by through the General Education Board for it to become what it is today, which is an industrialized factory pushing out children and literally, Programming you to become a conformist and somebody who is passive and somebody who is non-creative and a factory worker, just as the man who funded it himself said. So we will discuss that. Before we discuss that though, we are also going to discuss the Satanic performance during the Grammys by performer Sam Smith. All right. Sam Smith performed his hit song, unholy, right? Starting off to a good start there, unholy in a Satanic outfit with, uh, women in bondage all around him with flames all around him. And uh, yeah. And then immediately after that, there's a certain company that was promoting this and sponsoring this show, which is hilarious, and we will talk about who that was once we get into it. After that, we're also going to discuss the Pentagon coming out and saying that talking about the Chinese spy. Which is probably, if nothing else, just great comedy. I cannot believe that this, the white balloon floating through the sky became the, the biggest hit story for how many days . And we'll talk about what my thoughts are on that and why I think it was just a huge distraction for something else that was bigger going on. Uh, so we'll talk about what that is, and then we are also going to discuss the controversy that is surrounding the very new Harry Potter game. Now, I, for one, am stoked about this game. I read my daughter Harry Potter every single night. I love JK Rowling. I posted about her last week. I really appreciate her opinions on the, uh, current events that are going on surrounding the trans movement and some things like that that she's spoken out on, uh, protecting actual women's rights. So there's been some controversy surrounding that. We'll talk about why, but. Just know this. JK Rowling is on the good side, , she is on the good side, and there's not too many of us, right? Especially when it comes to, you know, authors and generally creative people in the the large spotlight of the world. So holding down the Fort JK Rowling, I appreciate you. All right. Then, like I said, we're gonna jump into our main topic of the week, which is all gonna be about how the education system is just indoctrinating your children and turning them into factory workers and how that started, who founded it, why, and how to correct it for you and your family moving forward. So without further ado, let's jump into it. But first things first, I need you to hit that subscribe button if you're new here. I appreciate you so much from the bottom of my heart. I love ya.

All right, that's all I got. Go ahead and subscribe. Five star review. Love ya. Let's jump into it. Welcome to Red Pill Revolution. My name is Austin Adams. Red Pill Revolution started out with me, realizing everything that I knew, everything that I believed, everything I interpreted about my life is through the lens of the information I was spoonfed as a child. Religion, politics, history, conspiracies, Hollywood medicine, money, food, all of it. Everything we know was tactfully written to influence your decisions and your view on reality by those in power. Now I'm on a mission, a mission to retrain and reeducate myself to find the true reality of what is behind that curtain. And I'm taking your ass with me. Welcome to the Revolution. All right. All right. All right. And my best Matthew McConaughey impression, the very first thing we're gonna talk about today is Sam Smith's Grammy performance, where he was dressed as the devil on primetime television with women around him dancing in what appeared to be bondage materials with the flames all around them. it's like in primetime, televis. Right children watching this, uh, in, in one of the most celebrated Hollywood events right now, you have people out there like Alex Jones, who have been talking about Hollywood being satanic, calling them Satanists for decades, and everybody for how long has pointed to Alex Jones and called him a conspiracy theorist, and all of a sudden it's just rubbed in our face constantly from the artwork that was on the wall of Freaky Friday. Mom's, uh, business meeting office that we talked about last week to Sam Smith's Grammy performance to. Basically everything that comes out of Hollywood from the, uh, the cosmetic lines of the Kardashians to, uh, uh, there's basically nothing that you can point to that is not satanic at this point in Hollywood. that's an exaggeration, but this is probably one of the most egregious ones. So we're, there's a lot, a lot of pushback on this, and let's find out why. So this article comes from Yahoo News and it says, did we really need a satanic bondage show at the Grammys? And this again, comes from Yahoo News, which is kind of surprising to me because Yahoo News is primarily left-leaning and even they're critiquing this. All right, so it goes on to say that, wanna know why so many people are giving up on mainstream pop culture? Take a look at Sam Smith and Kim Petra's performance of their hit song, unholy at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night, in case you missed it. Variety described the performance as including Petras dancing in a cage, flanked by some dominatrices wearing satanic headgear. Smith also dawned a satanic top hat as huge flames heated up the stage, you know, wholesome family entertainment, . Uh, now it looks totally possible for a mature adult to watch this and see it for what it is, an aggressive reach for attention through controversy, right? And, and that's what some people have done is like a defense to this, right? When it came to Balenciaga, when it came to even this, you'll see a lot of people are just saying, oh, it's just they're, they're trying to push controversy. Well, here's the thing about. Right When we're talking about people's religions, when we're talking about like the actual good verse e like maybe this isn't the time when Balenciaga is literally subtweeting pedophilia and satanic ritualistic, I don't know, endeavors through their ad campaigns. And then Jamie Lee Curtis gets called out for having a, a, a pedophilia based artwork on her wall. And then, uh, you know, all, all of these things, all of these things that are happening simultaneously over the last, I don't know, two to three years maybe now's not the time to have a Satanic ritual on stage during the Grammys. That's all I'm saying. Maybe , maybe, maybe there's a better time for that and maybe it's not immediately after Balenciaga, Jamie Lee Curtis and all of these people. Epstein like maybe now is not the. Right. Maybe there's a better time for that or maybe there's no reason for it all when you're pushing it during mainstream hours, right? You have children watching the Grammys. It's the Grammys. It's like literally like going to watch American Idol and then all of a sudden they're pushing satanism down your throat and everybody's acting like satanism isn't an actual thing, right? I watched something on Joe Rogan. I was watching the, a recent Joe Rogan episode where it was, ah, gosh, what's the guy's name? Let me see if I can find it. The guy was on Joe Rogan and he was talking about how ridiculous it is that the, the right takes, the idea that there's satanism within high up political positions and within Hollywood and all of these things. Seriously, right? Like Kyle Kolinsky, Kyle Kolinsky, which wasn't, you know, wasn't, wasn't the most crazy positions that he held during this, and I would be happy to speak with him. Um, but. His position was this. He, he went on to Joe Rogan and said something along the lines of the fact that there's real conspiracies out there, right? There's things like Epstein Island are real, but things like the Q Conspiracy, which, yes, there's definitely some crazy weird, unrealistic, bizarre and far reaching positions within the Q movement, but one of them that he called out specifically was that there is, uh, satanic rituals happening in high up positions of Hollywood and government political positions. Right. He, he alluded to the idea that, oh, that's just a conspiracy and everybody wants to call them out. But, you know, Joe Rogan has talked about this specifically, that there's actually things going on like Bohemian Grove, where you have people who are in high political positions, who are in, who are multi-billionaires, who all meet each other at a certain little club. In California, in burn EFS that are supposed to be child sacrifices to a owl God at Bohemian Grove, which again, going back to Alex Jones, he actually went and did undercover work to be there during one of these and saw the whole thing go down. This is real right now. He talked about the comet ping pong pizza thing and like pizza gate and all of that, and how crazy that is. And maybe, maybe so. Maybe that's crazy, but you cannot tell me that there is not satanists riddled within high political and positions within high, uh, societal positions like Hollywood, like music, like politics. You cannot tell me that that is not a thing. It's already been proven in places like Bohemian Grove, and then these things just compound on top of it. Right. So when we see people like Bill Clinton riding on Epstein's plane to go to Epstein Island, bill Gates being best friends, it seems like with Epstein during all of this, right, all of these people having their own islands, and then you look at the, the altars sitting on the top of Epstein Island, you cannot tell me that there is not a deeper issue going on there at all. That is not motivated in some sort of anti, uh, anti Christianity, anti-God satanic ritualistic thing going on there that is self-admitted, in be the Bohemian Grove situation. We already know that to be true. So it's frustrating to me that everybody is still trying to say that you're crazy for saying that these things exist. If you tell me that I'm crazy for believing that Christians exist, everybody would look at you and go, yeah, you're done. And, but you tell people that there's actual satanism in high positions in politics or, or even that they just exist in general. And people all of a sudden think you're a wild conspiracy theorist. It's like, no, there is a good and there is an evil, there is a light and there is a dark it. It's a real thing, guys. Okay? Now that all kind of goes back to the music conversation here, right? The conversation here is that maybe this was a cry for attention. Maybe this was a cry for controversy. Maybe they wanted to get more eyes on the Grammys cuz nobody gives a shit about it at all anymore. Nobody watches the Grammys, at least not that I know. Nobody wa, nobody cares about any of these shows anymore. They're completely irrelevant. So maybe it is a cry for attention and all publicity is good publicity, even if it is Satanic, right? Maybe that's the case, but maybe now is not the time to do that with all these things coming out, like Balenciaga and all of these other campaigns that have been rearing their ugly heads during this time, right? So, . There's my thought on that. All right. It moves on to say that this, um, it says that there was the 1980s satanic panic when politicians wives were able to get congressional hearings held to tackle the supposed scourge of heavy metal bands that seemed harmlessly campy. With the passage of time and last night's Satan bonded show reminded me of that onion headline from 22 years ago. Marilyn Manson now goes door to door trying to shock people . But even if you see the Satanic shtick as more schlocky than disturbing, it's hard to make the case that images of women grinding in cages are appropriate for network television on a Sunday night during prime time, a time when the broadest audience available, including children are watching. Again, we are talking about the Grammy Awards mainstream Pop Music's Oscars, which aired on CBS b s from 8:00 PM Now, one thing about it too is c b s before the show said, ready. What did they say? They said in a tweet, ready to worship. CBS b s, the same CBS b s that you watched Arthur on, pretty sure that was Cbs b s, the same c b s that you throw on kids' cartoons is saying, ready to worship the devil with Sam ha Sam Smith at the Grammy Awards. Now to piggyback off of that and make things even worse on the transition out of the performance, the very next thing that pops on the screen with flames in the background is sponsored by none other than Pfizer, who would have thought, , you cannot write this. Why would they do that? Why would they do that? If I was, if I was sponsoring, you know, how much that ad position costs? Do you know how much Pfizer paid out to have that specific position during the Grammy? On the backs of a Satanic ritual music performance that was going on, whether it was for shock factor or if it was really what happened. Now some people are also showing and talking about the 2000 plus people that died from an earthquake the day following. I'm not saying anything about that, but it's an interesting coincidence. Um, but what in the world, right? So, um, this is not, it goes on to say, this is not to say art shouldn't be provocative. Petris whose past hits include, treat me like a slut. During her acceptance speech, after winning the Grammy best pop duo performance for unholy proclaimed that she was the first transition or transgender woman to win the award. And later backstage explained that she grew up wondering about religion and wanting to be a part of it, but slowly realizing it didn't want me to be a part of it. So it's a take on not being able to choose religion and not being able to live the way that people might want you to live. Because as a trans person, I'm already not kind of wanted in religion. So we were doing a take on that and I was kind of, hell keep Kim, what kind of bullshit response is that? That's the best you got for that. Like, oh, I'm trans. That was literally . Literally her response is, well, don't be mad at me. I'm trans. What a perfect response. What , as far as I'm concerned, this says, Willing. Adults can watch this if they want, but last night's TV audience didn't buy a ticket for this. Indeed, on a show intended for general audiences, it was meant to provoke, to push boundaries and very possibly designed to offend a good portion of the audience. At least 30, 40% of the audience is somebody not far left liberal. Which the fact that you even have to say that like the idea that being a associated with trans or the left is inherently makes you much closer to being on the side of the satanic ritualistic performance is kind of comical. Right. And I don't think that very many people would agree with that, that are on the left that would like this to be happening. Like I, I don't think that's, but the mainstream is trying to say that. Right. Anyways, all right, let's go ahead and read on, it goes on to say, All right. And when you're sticking your finger in the eye of millions of people, it's really hard to argue with those saying that Hollywood produces a mainstream popular culture that is openly intolerant of their values. It's also harder to tell them they're wrong and intolerant. If you would prefer to check out, unplug the TV and homeschool your kids, which we'll get to at the end of this choice is a two-way street. And many are making the informed choice to tune out while they still can. I may be attuned to this, more, attuned to this than some. Almost every Sunday, my wife and I sit back at the pew of a conservative church about once a month. The pastor preaches about how bad things are in America and how our culture is. So Deb botched and depraved. Um, so this must be a very opinionated piece from Yahoo that nobody approved cuz they would never let somebody who goes to church be a part of Yahoo All right. Anyways, uh, and then they have the actual performance here. Let's see if we can see the last. Minute there. So 30 seconds. Or not? Or not. All right. Um, moving on. Moving on. All right. The next thing that we're gonna discuss here is going to be, and I'd be interested to see your guys' thoughts. Do you think that they were being real? Do you think that it was all a ploy for controversy? I don't know. Either way, do better. That's like, that's so like, can't be is the right term. Like just cheap. Cheap. If that's what you're doing for controversy, right? That's like you can just maybe be better at singing and writing songs. You don't have to do satanic stuff to get people's attention. All right. Now the next thing discussed here is that the, the . So if you had been under a rock over the last week, there was a big white balloon floating over the United States for days, and allegedly it was a Chinese spy balloon. Now, if you were to engineer a Chinese spy balloon, a spy balloon, why would you make it white Why? Why is the first color that comes to mind in the sky going to be like they just didn't expect there to be clear skies? I don't know, but it was so easy to see. It looked like, like there was everybody who was zooming in on this, this spy balloon thought it was. They're like, there's the moon and what the hell is that? Right? If, if you're truly spending billions of dollars to spy on the United States, I don't think you're doing it by painting a white balloon and then sending it across the country at 14 miles an hour. , it seems like if China already has all of the information they ever need, you know what they needed to do, even if they're flying over Montana for the, the nuke bases that are there, or whatever's going on there that they were trying to gather data and intel for. You know what they had to do? They had to go to TikTok and they had to flip. You know what? They didn't even have to flip a switch. What is this? 1980. They had to search in the search bar, Montana, nuke site, military personnel, and then they would've had a list of every single person ever, and they would've all been actively scrolling, TikTok, talking about everything they would ever have wanted to know. Why in the hell would China need a spy balloon of all things in 20 2023 to spy on the United States? This seems so comical that they captivated the entire country with this and still managed somehow to make Biden look Incom even more incompetent than he already was in weak. But the fact that this balloon floated over the United States at four miles an hour with some type of solar panels underneath it for days. Days, and we're expected to believe that that was some type of spy balloon. To me, there's absolutely more going on here. Whether it was something to divert the public's attention away from other things that were going on, you know, like Pfizer being tried for crimes against humanity simultaneously. Hmm. Maybe that, which I think, uh, Marjorie Taylor Green brought up within some of the hearings that were going on during that time. Uh, how there was like ungodly amounts of money that were being funneled out of the covid relief sacks going to, you know, all types of horrible things. Um, so I I, I don't see how it was in the diversion. If it was, it worked and the fact that our, the American attention span, it's like, oh, a balloon. There must be nothing else going around that's worthy of news at this time. Like that's the best that they had to divert our attention. And it worked. Right? Like, how is the why? Why are we so easily fooled? Right? What , and if that was true, how, like, there's one of two options here. Option one is that we were truly, truly captivated by a balloon with no other information besides just the fact that there was a balloon. It would've been better if it was like a balloon with like the Chinese flag on it that said like, fuck you, United States or something, That would've been far more entertaining. Like that would've caught my attention better, at least have some good comedy involved. Uh, but it was just a white balloon and just everybody stopped to see what was going on. And somehow we knew it was Chinese before the Chinese even agreed with us. I heard some people saying potentially maybe it was diversion or, or it was some type of test to see if they floated these balloons across the United States simultaneously and like launched E em P attacks. They wanted to test the waters to see how capable we were of tracking them and finding them and how far into the US they would get. Maybe, maybe. But I also think that that, like, just the fact that news companies picked this up so quickly, social media picked this up so quickly. It just seems bizarre to me. Seems bizarre. I don't know, again, I'd be interested to see what your guys' thoughts are. I do not see how this balloon was the best way that China was going to surveil the United States. I, I don't buy it. They already have assets in every single military installation. They have them at every top university. They have every single person including mine, their phone bugged right now to where they're listening to this conversation of me making fun of them. , right? They can hear everything. They know everything. They can look at pictures of my dick on my phone or something. I don't know, right? They, they, they know everything about you. They know everything you're saying when you're saying it. Why the hell, anybody at all would believe they need to float a big white balloon over the United States to actually get any information that they needed is just puzzling and comical to me right now. I put something out there that was a little Babylon esque , which was like, it's my take because the Babylon bee missed on this one. They could have done better, so I put my own out there. Um, but which was that, uh, military too, too busy paying attention to completely harmless TikTok app to notice Chinese spy balloon, which is like kind of a double hit, right? Like the fact that we're gonna all sit and complain about China spying on us with this balloon. Yet every single one of you is sitting there with TikTok on your phone right now, right? Almost everybody. If you don't, and you're still holding all on TikTok, One of two things. You're either over 60, 50, maybe, maybe 45. And if you're under that and you don't got it, you lame, you gotta have TikTok, even if you're showing them off, you know, all your pictures, all your life, telling 'em everything, you know, holding outs, holding out. So just, just give your, give your life over to China. They already, they already have everybody else's information. They might as well own you too. Right. So I, I just, okay, so here's the next thing that came up. As a result of this, the Pentagon came out and said they did not detect previous Chinese spy balloons. Right? So, so the Biden administration came out and tried to say that during the Trump administration there was at least three times that Chinese spy balloons flew over the United States. which then Trump denied. Right. And that was after a top US general said that the Pentagon did not detect them, but there were, the Biden administration was trying to say, well, well it wasn't just us. Trump had two of these or three of these balloons too, right? Which is like just he said, she said H hilarity. Now it goes on and said that we did not detect any of those threats. Um, the Intel community after the fact, I believe, as has been briefed, already assessed those threats from additional means of collection and made us aware of these balloons that were previously approaching North America or transited North America. President Biden ordered the latest Chinese surveillance balloon, which spent days in US Aerospace to be shot down off the coast of South Carolina on Saturday. I highly doubt he had anything to do with that, but the US is currently trying to recover the debris, hoping to gain intelligence from the wreck. After a senior in this article is coming from the Hill. Um, after a senior defense official said over the weekend that the US was aware of at least three different times, such balloons flew over the US During the Trump administration, the former president and his intelligence officials came out to deny the claim. Now they are putting out that the balloon was put up by China during the Trump administration in order to take the heat off the slow moving Biden Fools Trump said in the post untruth social, China has had too much respect for Trump for this to have happened, and it never did just fake disinformation. The clash between the Biden administration and Trump and his former officials prompted rep, uh, representative Marjorie Taylor Green to call for a probe into why Trump was not made aware of the balloons during his presidency if they were detected. If it's true, the Pentagon purposefully did not tell Trump of Chinese spy balloons during his administration. Then we had a serious breach of command during the Trump administration. She said on Twitter, Senior administration officials cited Sunday in Bloomberg reporting said that the US didn't learn about the previous balloons until after Trump had left the Oval Office. It is unclear how the Biden administration learned about the previous flights. Alright, that's my take on the fricking spy balloon , like there's oh oh seven, there's, you know, like, and then there's the Chinese white spy balloon, like the, the, this just shows you how, how far the US has fallen. And then last but not least in the current events trained here is going to be that JK Rawling and the Harry Potter video game are taking heat for seemingly no reason at. Okay. JK Rowling wrote the Harry Potter series, and I put out a, a, a post a couple days ago, few days ago now, um, talking about how JK Rowling has been vehemently posting about how she is against the movement of men wearing wigs pretending to be women and moving into female spaces under the guise of being trans. Okay? She has been very public in her, her disavowing of this movement, of calling out the people that were allowed to be moved into jail. Cells who were like actual six foot four murderers going into jail with women, like, because they were calling themself trans and wearing a wig. So she's been very, very public about this and, and, and, Fully, we, there's, there's actually some people with the balls to do this that are, have this big of a platform because she's taken a ton of heat for it, right? And now here's the, here's what's going on with it. It says, why is Hogwarts legacy a Harry Potter video game so controversial right now? The, the, the, the cliff notes of this is going to be that she doesn't agree with the trans agenda, and she believes in encroachment on feminine spaces and on femininity as a whole, right? Men putting on a wig saying they feel like a woman wearing makeup, watching some YouTube contouring classes, and then all of a sudden going to pee in a women's bathroom. As a result, she doesn't agree with it. Okay? So now everybody's calling for boycotts of the Harry Potter game and like everybody's, like from Twitter perspective and all of these, like people trying to review Harry Potter. Like towing the line, but also really pissed that this video game is just crushing it. It's a sweet looking video game. I can't wait to play it. Um, and I haven't played video games in quite a while, uh, but this one is one that I will almost go out and buy a new gaming system just to be able to play. It looks incredible. So it's a role-playing game of Harry Potter. You start out as if you are a new stu, well, not a new student, a fifth year student at Hogwarts. And then you go through and, and you can create your character, you can go on missions, you get it's, it looks amazing and. Like, for all of us that grew up on Harry Potter, like this is a dream come true. That you have something like this incredible technology like the, the, the picture that I'm looking at of Harry flying a hippogriff right now, which is like a eagle mixed with a horse. If you don't know, the Harry Potter series just looks unbelievable. Like it looks beautiful, all right? And now they're calling for people to boycott it over her position on trans ideology. Now, here's what I have to say, just as like a metapoint over all of this is that I just got done. I've been on a little bit of a fiction kick recently. I haven't read very much fiction in my life at all. So I'm going back and reading like all the OG stuff, right? Like I I the first, this started a little bit, well, I actually say it started with fairy. Um, I just start, I just finished probably a month ago. Uh, Stephen King's new book. That was the number one book of 2022, which was Fairytale, which is an incredible, incredible book. I would highly recommend you go read it. It's a bit thick. It's like 700 pages. It was a bit thick for me to read for my very first fiction book and probably 10 years Um, but it was very good. Captivated my attention. It's an incredible story, beautifully written. Like, so much like it's, it's great. I would highly, highly recommend it. Fairytale by Stephen King. Go check it out. Um, literally if you have a, a library card and, and just go buy it from Amazon anyways, cause it's like 15 bucks. Um, but here's the deal. I don't agree with the things that Stephen King said about politics. I don't agree with his positions on politics. I don't. He he's constantly calling out the right, he's, he's very liberal in his ideology. He does not agree with the Second Amendment. I could give two shits what Stephen King thinks about politics. You know what? He's an incredible writer, and I don't care what he thinks about politics. He's an amazing artist, and regardless of his political stance, just like I, I would be friends with anybody who's on the, any side of the spectrum, right? I don't think that you need to condemn somebody's life work because they disagree with you politically then that that literally means that you're gonna take 50%, 50% of the, maybe not 50% of the artist, just with the way that personality traits lie when it comes to being leaning left or being right, but, A good portion of the talented people in the world. And if you're on the right and you have a problem with artists who are left leaning, then you literally are like, out of 75% of the conversations when it actually comes to enjoying art, enjoying music, enjoying Hollywood, like Hollywood movies. Like you're just out of the conversation and the whole, so like maybe in part this is just like self-preservation in, in my appreciation of art in this lifetime, but I, I just don't see how you can take somebody's political opinion and, and just completely discount their life's work and, and, and discount something that they, this universe that they built beautifully and incredibly over how much of their, their life that you. Like made my childhood at points, it was probably one, it was the only fiction books I really read growing up that I was just like, really Remember reading? I read almost, I read all the Harry Potter books. My grandma gave them to me every year that they came out and I read them every year. I loved Harry Potter, loved all the movies, right? And, and if it was Stephen King that wrote it, I would still enjoy it. And if the game was badass and looked like this, I would still play it. I don't care about, that's like, that's the difference to me between the left and the right is that the left is going to like, and, and maybe that's a powerful thing and for the left at least, maybe that's something that you can give 'em. It's like, man, they're really sticking by it. If you're not gonna go play this sick Gary Potter game because she spoke out against women being, or men being allowed in women's prison. after they murdered people. Like, that's your position then, you know, you're pretty, you're sticking to your guns pretty hard because I'll, I would still play this game for sure. Right. So let, let's read this article. We'll see what the actual, this is coming from Polygon. Not sure what the hell that website is, um, but let's read it. It says, Hogwarts legacy on the face of it, should have been the pure wish fulfillment for millions of fans who have been enchanted by the Lord of Harry Potter's world over the last 25 years in the video game launching next week, players will live the life of mystery and adventure that comes with being a student at pop culture's. Foremost school of witchcraft and wizardry still Hogwarts legacy and the Harry Potter franchise trouble. Many fans for reasons outside the video game, story or context. Why is that? We'll now go further behind the wizarding world curtains to explain the controversy. The game, which was announced at PlayStation State of Play event in September, 2020. Hogwarts legacy is an open world action r PPG adventure in which the player enrolls in Hogwarts school of witchcraft and witchy. Uh, the player character is user generated, however, they're a fifth stu, fifth year student, so they'll begin this, the game with some advanced magical aptitude. Why is the game controversial? Mainly because the public stances that author and series creator JK Rowling has chosen to take regarding gender identity. Going back to 2018, her views came into full display in the summer of 2020. At the time, Scotland Row, as a resident of Edenberg writing most Harry Potter series, there was considering changing its laws to allow individuals to change the gender assign in their birth certificates without a medical diagnosis. After a couple years of Corey's social media adjusters and replies on the subject, on June 10th, 2020 Row, published a confrontational 3,600 word essay on her personal website, spelling out her views on gender identity, her skepticism of transgender inclusive laws and policies, and the new trans activism row invoked her own survival of domestic abuse and surv sexual assault, while also raising a discredited hypothetical about male, a discredited hypothetical about male sexual predators being allowed into restrooms for girls and women as long as they identify as women. There is nothing hypothetical about that. There's literally countless articles out there of people predators. There's literally a school where they silence the girl and their parents for talking about this boy that was coming into the women's locker room and and preying on. I'm pretty sure raped them in this locker room. And then they were, the school was standing up for the man, the boy who was identifying as a girl and literally raped these girls. And, and like this's, not a high, a discredited hypothetical to say that this is happening. Like if you are a predator, why would you not do that? It's literally a backdoor like workaround, loophole to being able to be a fucking creep. And all you have to do is throw a wig on it and nobody gets to say anything to you like that. Yeah. Not a discredited hypothetical. Anyways, since the June, 2020 editorial rolling has continued to engage with the subject of transgender identity from the same point of view, her crime trouble, or crime crime novel, it's the Wine Troubled Blood, also published in 2020 under the Nome Day Plume, Robert Galbraith. Well, that was pretty good. Huh um, tells the story of a serial killer who dresses as a woman when he carries out his murders. LGBTQ plus advocacy organizations condemned it in Rowing's other writings as harmful and subor the harm and discrimination of transgender persons. Although some of Rowing's celebrity colleagues publicly came to her defense, um, is she developing it reportedly? Not immediately after Hogwarts legacy worldwide revealed in September, 2020, publishers, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment Post, they frequently asked questions that distance the project from rolling. Hogwarts legacy is not a new story from rowing. Um, adding that rolling is not directly involved in the creation of the game. All right. It says, obviously, however it is built on the Harry Potter Kenos in concepts that Rolling had has developed since the book Harry Potter and The Philosopher Stone, which was published in 1997. Warner Bro's. Interactive Entertainment put its Utah based studio Avalanche software on Hogwarts legacy. W B I E acquired Avalanche. Who cares? All this said Rollings inevitably benefits from the publication in sale of ho like, yeah, of course. Whether that's in the form of royalty is a specific payment to adapt to her work. Who cares? Who cares? Um, yeah, who cares? Yes, she's involved. She literally created this entire universe in her head, along with all of the characters, all of the games, all of the spells, the entire school that you're going to all of it. And if you care to put a political statement down to not play it, she does not give a flying shit, as she said on Twitter. Um, literally actually said that on Twitter. I'll, I'll read you verbatim. She said. Uh, you're not required to buy it as she, oh, she retweeted this from Solomon Rushdi. Um, you're not required to buy it. The truth is the truth, whether you buy it or not, the planet is round. Even if you don't buy that and insist it's flat. But I'm, it, the, whoever tweeted that or retweeted somebody talking about it, um, deleted this. So I can't tell what the context of that was, but it seems to be about the video game, I would assume it is. Um, but another tweet by JK Rowling said, I don't know about you, but excluding women from women's prisons just because they've got penises, male pattern baldness and have committed a couple rapes, seems awfully turfy to me. . And that was a response to, does Scotland's first prime Minister believe all trans women are women? Uh, yeah, because they recently in Scotland said that men could not go live in women's prisons just because they think they're a girl. So, Anyways, let's go back and see if there's anything of merit on this. Here's something that Jesse Earl said, no idea who that is, but don't really care. Um, any support of the Harry Potter franchise current projects while JK Rowling is in charge of it and using her ongoing platform to target and also justify her continued targeting of trans people is harmful to trans people. I will not begrudge anyone their love of past works or things they've already owned that they take comfort in. I own the first nine movies and all seven books myself, but any support of something like Hogwarts legacy is harmful. It's so harmful to say that men who raped women should not be in prison with women. Um, and then JK Rowling said deeply disappointed. Jesse Granger doesn't realize, pure think is incompatible with owning anything connected with me in any form. The true righteous wouldn't just burn their books in movies, but the lo local library, anything with an owl on it. And their own bad dogs do better. Um, way to go JK Rowling. Um, yeah, so it's the fact that they're like, trying to say that you should just outright not play this game at all, to me, is like comical. Like I said, I read Stephen King's book. I I think that you should go read Stephen King's book regardless of his political opinion. It's a phenomenal book. Harry Potter's a phenomenal, apparently a video game now. Uh, it's phenomenal books. Who cares about their political ideology? You should appreciate good art regardless of what they think. And, and in a world where, you know, like 50 years ago, you would've never even known these things to begin with. So like, who cares? Go read Stephen King. Go read JK Rowling. Who cares? Uh, appreciate good art and art for what it is. And, and if you don't agree with their political opinions, then don't follow them on Twitter. Who gives a shit right? Those are my thoughts. All right, and last but not least, the very last thing we're gonna discuss is going to be the American education system. All right, now we'll see how long we get into this, cuz I have quite the lengthy article here that we're gonna read through, which goes into all of it, the history, who funded it, all of it.

Now, I've been diving into this for a pretty long time now, the, the reason that I'm going into this today is because I believe wholeheartedly in the idea of educating your children. Right. I believe that as a society as a whole, we have been abdicating far too much of the responsibility of raising our children to corporations, governmental entities, and screens. Okay? That's what we've been doing, and we've been doing it in the name of like, easier, like, like just. Go away from me. Right? It's easier if your kid goes off to school every day and you don't have to deal with them. It's easier if you turn on a TV and the first thing in the morning when they wake up, so you don't have to deal with them. It's easier if you, you know, X, Y, and Z and, and fill it in. Every single thing that we do today in the modern society is for the ease of the parents and the, the lack of the child, right? So in school's, one of the biggest ones of that, my children that are of school age are all homeschooled by my wife. Okay? We sat down, we figured up a cur, figured out a curriculum. This is not something that I'm just. Talking about, and as a hypothetical, I live this every day, okay? And it's not easy to homeschool your children. It is not easy. But you know what else is not easy? Is knowing that your child is being indoctrinated in a school system that doesn't align with your belief systems. It's also knowing that your child is being indoctrinated in a school system, that there's 25 other children in the room where your child's getting very little, if any attention, and you could give them the same amount of quality of education, if not far greater in the fraction amount of the time. And all we're doing with public schools is literally just pushing our children into a glorified daycare, okay? Especially in an age where technology gives you the ability to educate yourself better than you can. Go online right now and take free Harvard courses. No problem. You can go online to YouTube right now and go find the single best person, and it's already curated for you. YouTube's already done all the legwork. They've found the single best person at teaching you something in, in, in the most engaging and entertaining way you can go find it, search literally anything, and you'll be able to find it. It's all done for you. That's how easy our lives are, but we've forgotten that. We're so far from that now that just because we have access to the information, we're still shoving our children off to schools just because it's easier. So there's my preempt. Let's read this article. It says, the Ugly Truth about the education system that You Were Never Told, quote by Alo Einstein says, education is not the learning of facts, but the training of minds. And Albert Einstein said, ever since I've gotten deeper, and, and this is an article written by, um, again, the Soulja. Um, it says, ever since I've gotten deeper into spirituality, meditation, and metaphysics, a lot of my views in the variety of subjects have changed dramatically. But something that hasn't changed since the time I was a kid is my views on the education system. We usually think of schools as environments to stimulate learning, but it ironically, ironically, manages to stifle the innate curiosity and the eagerness to learn that are present in all of us as children. It promotes mindless conformity and conveniently ignores the fact that we are all unique individuals with different talents, inclinations, and aspirations. Schools curtail independent thinking and inputs all of us through standardized tests and sees it as a good indicator to determine someone's level of intelligence. The system frankly never made sense to me, and I would often sit in class and wonder how most of what I was taught in class would have any real life application. But upon exploring the origins of the current education system, it has finally started to make perfect sense, and I've discovered that it is serving the very purpose it was designed to accomplish. What if I told you that it was never meant to, to meant for the objective of the current education system to nurture, learning, curiosity, critical thinking and creativity in students, but in fact, to do quite the opposite. In this post, I'd like to share with you a compilation of writings that reveal the veracity of the above statements by uncovering the startling origins and purpose of the education system, the factory model of education. Um, the famous author and futurist, Alwin Toffler describes the origins of the current education system in his 1970s book, future Shock, which goes on to say, pause for Wine, which goes on to. The American, the American education system, education system, as well as the system practiced here in India and around the world, was actually copied from the 18th century Prussian model designed to create docile subjects in factory workers. Mass education was the Indi or the ingenious machine, constructed by industrialism to produce the kind of adults that needed how to preap children for a new world, a world of repetitive indoor toil, smoke noise machines, crowded living conditions, collective discipline in a world in which time was to be regulated, not by the cycle of the sun and the moon, but by the factory whistle and the clock. The solution was an education system that in its very structure, simulated this new world. This new system did not emerge instantly, even today. It remains throwback elements from the pre-industrial society, yet the whole idea of assembling masses of a students to be processed by teachers in essentially located school. Was a stroke of industrial genius. The whole administration hierarchy of education as it grew up, followed the model of the industrial bureaucracy. The very organization of knowledge into permanent disciplines was grounded on industrial assumptions. Children's children's marched from place to place and sat in the signs stations bells rang to announce changes of time. The inner life of the school became an anticipatory mirror, a perfect introduction to industrial society. The most criticized feature of education today, the regimentation, lack of indus or individualization, the rigid systems of seating, grouping, grading and marking. The authoritarian rule of the teacher are precisely those that made mass public education so effective in instrument of adaptation for its place. And. Built on the factory model, mass education, taught basic reading, writing, and arithmetic, A bit of history and other subjects. The overt curriculum beneath it was the covert curriculum that was far more basic. It consisted of three courses, punctuality, obedience, and repetitive work. The basic training requirements to produce reliable, productive factory workers. Factory labor demanded workers who would take orders from a management hierarchy without questioning, and it demanded men and women prepared to slave away at machines or in offices performing brutally repetitive tasks. And that was a paraphrased article from Alan Toffler s Future Shock Book. All right, so now what we go on to find was that the model that was modeled off of the Prussian model of the 18th century was implemented by none other than the Rockefeller family, John d Rockefeller implemented. Using 129 million, the general education board, and provided major funding for schools across the nation and was very influential in shaping the school systems. He didn't exactly conceal his interests and motive in being actively involved in promoting the widespread adaptation of the education system. And once stated, and I quote, I don't want a nation of thinkers, I want a nation of workers, Frederick t. T Gates, a prominent member of the General Education Board, also stated, we shall not try to make these people or any of their children into philosophers or men of learning or men of science, we have not to raise up from among them, authors, editors, poets, or men of letters. We shall not search for embryo, great artists, painters, musicians, nor lawyers, doctors, preachers, politicians, statements of whom we have an ample supply. There are even reports that Rockefeller and Industrial Giant, Andrew Carnegie played a significant role to influence the American education agenda to direct what students were taught in school. In 1914, the National Education Association alarmed by the activity of the Carnegie and Rockefeller Foundation stated in their annual meeting, we view with alarm the activity of the Carnegie and Rockefeller Foundations agencies not in any way responsible to the people in their efforts to control the policies of our state education institutions to fashion after their contraception, conception, to factor after their conception, and to standardize our courses of study and to surround the institutions with conditions which menace true academic freedom and defeat the primary purpose of democracy as here to four, preserved and violate in our common schools, normal schools and universities. So, Very interesting. It goes on to say that don't miss how one man brainwashed humanity to be mindless consumers, which was an excerpt from a brief History of education published in Psychology Today by Research Professor Peter Gray. So what we find there is the John, the, the Rockefeller Foundation implemented the general education board and the general education board. The idea, and, and, and then we talked about this when we almost go back to our very first episode, right? Um, ins, uh, uh, assassinations. Um, go, go back to the very first episode, and we find out that during the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, the, the whole movement away from allopathic mess or towards allopathic medicine from osteopathic and homeopathic medicine was all because of the Rockefeller Foundation. They pumped money in and, and made certifications and basically pushed out anybody that didn't align with the allopathic way of medicine. The allopathic way of medicine being the fact that your body. It has nothing to do with what's fighting the diseases and all you need is our pharmaceuticals, and that makes a much more profitable model. Right. So it was about structuring the way of education and medical pharmaceuticals in a way that allowed them to profit from it and, and to profit from you being a worker, not by you being a good thinker. Right. So with this article goes on to say from Psychology Today, um, says, if we want to understand why standard schools are what they are, we have to abandon the idea that they are products of logical necessity or scientific insight. They are instead, products of history. Schooling as it exists today only makes sense if we view it from a historical perspective. The idea and practice of universal compulsory public education developed gradually in Europe from the early 16th century on into the 19th century. It was an idea that had many supporters who all had their own agendas concerning the lessons that children should learn. Employers in the industry saw schooling as a way to create better workers. To them, the most crucial lessons were punctuality, following directions. Tolerance for long hours of tedious work and a minimal ability to read and write. So you guys can read more into that, but, but here's my position on all of it. We're, we're in a position now as a society where, where we can gain control, right? We, we have such an ease of access to information, such an ease of access to education. You don't need a school system. You don't need to go to public school to, to learn how to do math. You can find a hundred TikTok channels that'll teach you in, in a hundred million times more interesting ways how to do basic math. You can learn history by going to the history channel and watching a a hundred documentaries and learning 10 times more than you're gonna learn from some boring ass history professor who forgot everything from college and just is pushing papers at you so they can make an income. Everybody has the one, one teacher that they remember. Everybody. Shout out Mr. Perry. Everybody has the one teacher that they remember that actually cared about their students, that actually cared about their education. Right. And you remember them for a reason, right? You remember the impact that they made because they actually cared. But 90% of the teachers that you had didn't give a shit and probably don't remember you. Right? And so once we realized that we are so far gone from the times where the, the, the school library held the information and, and the, the universities were able to gate, keep knowledge, we're so far away from that. And there's far more information out there that you can leverage the technology that we have to move away from where you're, you have to be like, my, my sister goes to a university and she's taking a basic composition class and every single assignment that she's. Done. Every single paper that she's written has been interwoven in the fabric of indoctrination towards liberal ideology. And I talk with her about it almost every time I see her. She has to write a paper about why pronouns are a good thing. She has to write a paper about, uh, why, um, anti-racism is, is, is good for society, right? The idea of like white, uh, guilt, right? Like all of these things that she has to write papers on to learn how to, I don't know, have proper grammar and write a paper. I like, I don't buy the idea that I have to wholeheartedly buy into your political ideology to learn how to write a paper, right? It's, it's just horseshit. It's a way for you to pay money into the education system for them to teach your child things and indoctrinate them the way that they wanna push their political ideologies. Right? And, and, and so what, and, and so what this allude you to know too is that that's, that's the fundamentals of education. The fundamentals of education that lie in the idea that you have to follow their thought processes. Because if you think of education as a whole, right? You think of a baby just like a computer, right? Or, or, or a, a system, like an application that you're trying to program, right? You're, you're programming a child on how to think, right? The framework of, in structuring of thought is what you're teaching a child from the time you take them at literally four years old, five years old, you're putting them in a full-time job. This is one of the biggest reasons me and my wife decided to homeschool our children. There is no reason that my child needs a literal eight to 4:00 PM job Monday through Friday. There's no reason that my child needs that. I make enough money, thankfully, that my wife can stay home and teach my children. And if you don't have that, I get it, right? But you should strive for that independence and freedom, right? You should strive for that for your family. And so, And if your wife doesn't wanna do that, that's fine too. That's cool. But for me, that's important, right? I can give my wife and my children the ability to be around each other, and my child does not have to go get a full-time job to learn how to write English. My child does not have to get a full-time job eight to four every single day, Monday through Friday to learn how to read. No. There's hundreds of things that you can utilize. There's books. I have hundreds of books in my home right now that my child can use to learn how to read. There's however many applications on an iPad that is specifically built for your child to learn how to read, to learn how to do math, to learn how to write right. All of these tools are out there. Yet the reason that we as a country, as, as a society, as a culture are not utilizing them is because we've spent so ourselves indoctrinated into the idea that you turn five, you go to school now as a parent, you can throw your hands up, your job's easier. , right? But what you're missing by that is you are no longer the driver of your child's programming. How many articles, how many times have we seen teachers who have, who have been caught with far more explicit things than what we're talking about here? But even just pushing bad thoughts, right? Pushing bad ideology, pushing, you know, the, the L G B T Q stuff within a, a fifth, fourth, third, first grade class. There's no reason for that. You don't need to teach my child about sexuality. You don't need to teach, which is inherently from the root word of sex, right? You don't need to teach my child that, right? But by abdicating the responsibility of that eight to four timeframe every single day, you give them the right to do. So here's my thought is why not take that power back? Why not realize that it is easier now than ever to take control of your child's education, to take control of your child's programming? Because that is what is happening, is the programming. When you're teaching a child math, when you're teaching them science, when you're teaching them the scientific method, you're teaching them how to think. You're teaching them the framework of thought with math, it's the same reason the Gates Foundation was pushing hundreds of millions of dollars trying to confuse your children with common core for what you think. Bill Gates gives a shit about how your child divides 16 by 70, right? Like he doesn't care. You know what he does wanna do? He wants to program the way that your child's underlying programming and thought processes work for the remainder of their life. Right. That is why he's pushing hundreds of millions of dollars in the common core math. He wants to muddy up the waters of what's going on between your ears, your child's ears. Right? And you're allowing it. We're allowing it because we wanna make our lives easier. Homeschooling is easier than ever. There's so many resources, so many resources that you can utilize to teach your child and not give the, the ability for the state to literally program your child into a walking, talking factory worker from the rest of their lives. It's just so wild to me. It's so wild that that's how it goes. Like five years old. Five years old, you're gonna send your child to school, nine to five, eight to. , right? Like a full-time job at four years old. And you wonder why your kid's crabby and you have troubles with them at night, and they're acting up at school is because you want them to sit their butt in the chair all day when they should be running outside in the grass and playing. That's what your child should be doing, not sitting there trying to learn Bill Gates common core. So it's a really interesting topic that I want to dive deeper into. I'm gonna be finding somebody that I can pull into this conversation that knows far more about it than I do. But I do think that there's a really interesting conversation around the Prussian model, um, about how the, uh, Rockefeller Foundation pushed 129 million into formulating our current structure for school systems, right? Even if it's just the, the alarms of the factory, right? The bell. There's literally
