"This is because. I believe we need to sound that alarm now. I don't wanna see another donald trump. You know i'm not this is not a. It's not a political election argument like vote for this candidate or that camp. But i don't want to see a kind of fascist style authoritarian right wing takeover of this country and i think we are dangerously close to having that happen and i think the only or at least the best chance we have of preventing that is for the government to show that it can deliver real help to lots of people you were struggling with the word obvious and not feeling quite right with it and i kind of know what you mean and you know i would say. It's not obvious. But it's hidden in plain sight like it's exactly it's there but you'd have to cut drew a lot of the noise and bullshit. That's kind of competing for attention android and drowning it out and i would say that's probably what meltdown does does the best like it cuts through a lot of The bullshit that offer stations the rationalizations the excuses etc and just kind of gets to the bone the the center of the demand for you know I appreciate that. And i want to tell people you know folks who are listening. I think what people are gonna like is there. They're going to remember some of this stuff that either they had forgotten about that. I mean i remember researching this. I mean i think the a lot of people have forgotten about the entire firestorm for instance over the aig bonuses. This was a huge thing that happened right out of the gate. Two thousand nine. I think a lot of people either didn't know about it why i think a lot of people knew about it but i think a lot of people may blacked it out of their brain right. After obama got elected The democrats essentially authorized a government. Bailout money to be used to give executive bonuses to aig one of the big financial institutions that created the meltdown..

Okay some foods. It's okay but in some foods that i need. Okay because i'm not getting proper nutrition. Okay because i'm not able to eat certain stuff so it's like i have to eat it. Okay so then. I got decided takes these symptoms and things like that like i told you like my legs swell up ankles. Gabriel big or. I can't walk. You know because oxygenates are on food and or or things like there are histamine or a some foods have histamine releasing things that are in them that are released all the other hist immunity in the body that i was doing different supplements they had me trying and some of them were liberators.

Is The Sperm Race A Fairy Tale?
"Tell me a little bit about what you learned way back when about how conception works well. They showed us this video that described conception as a kind of obstacle course where the sperm little tadpole looking things and when they enter the vagina during this hostile environment. And they've done fight their way through all these obstacles and make it to the egg and the sperm. That reaches the egg wins. Kind of how it was told. Yeah that's pretty standard. It's similar to what i was taught to. And i spoke to lisa campbell angle stein. She's a reproductive bioethicist and she pointed out that we use really gendered language to describe this biology. She calls it a fertilization tale. So the sperm is this shining knight. Who's there to save the aig damsel in distress. And the sperm has all the agency the sperm is on a mission the sperm is fighting off other sperm to be the one to conquer the egg. Where's the egg is just sort of passively floating around waiting for the night and doesn't do anything itself. How does exactly what they told us. Yeah and lisa examined tons of textbooks at all levels from middle school to medical school for this kind of bias and she found some pretty wild stuff. For example sperm had this little hat like structure called the acronym textbooks described it as a motorcycle. Mean they could have called. It did horseback riding home at a ski how they could call the any type of helmets motorcycle helmet rights and that conjures up images of masculinity islanders. Tough guy weathers well clearly once again. The patriarchy finds a way but in this case. Isn't the story. exactly what happens. Biologically how it all goes down. Actually not at all. Oh no right. I am ready to go back to school. I want this post talk. Talk ariella let's do it. Only while buckle up today on the show go back to school to revisit the sperm race narrative and look at the ways that the edge and the reproductive tract plan active role in this process. I'm ariella zabidi. And i'm emily kwong. You are listening to shortwave the daily science podcast from npr. Alright classes in session. We're going back to school shortwave. School the best kind of school yes to learn about conception yeah and just to be clear. Today we're talking about this process as it plays out internally but a lot of folks conceived through the reproductive technologies like ibf. Yeah which are very cool. Okay just to recap. When i was taught conception in school it was basically described as a survivor style. Sperm race but ariella. You're telling me that this is a lie. yes yes. There are a few really big problems with this narrative when sperm i arrive in the vagina. They can't really race. I talked to jimmy heison. She's a biology professor at smith college. They don't have enough energy to make it to the side of conception. They don't have enough directional but isn't that what the cute little tales or for like don't the sperm use them to swim yet. Details do give sperm some swimming ability. But that's not a complete picture. The sperm are getting there faster than they could all on their own. And we've seen in rats and other mammals that even dead sperm can reach the lopion tubes so it seems like sperm. Don't rely that much on their own mobility. So are they getting their. The reproductive tract is bringing them along. Oh that is amazing. Okay how is the reproductive tract. Doing that so i talked to kristen hook. She's an evolutionary biologist. And she told me it's doing this tons of ways by changing the thickness of the reproductive tract fluid. Just like if we were swimming in a swimming pool with water versus a swimming pool of honey. You're gonna move differently in these different fluids or with contractions summer to contractions in your stomach after you've had a big meal or whatnot to move your food through your intestines so it's like the sperm are on one of those moving sidewalks y-yeah they're being transported along eventually reaching the philippian tubes. Okay and what happens after that. So the sperm. Start to move their tails more intensely. Which makes those pretty useless movements. We talked about earlier. More powerful research just that fluids in the reproductive tract kind of give the spur more energy. Think of it like taking a bath in coffee one. That's dreamy to the idea that the reproductive tract literally gives the sperm. Their strike is giving me strength right now. That is fantastic. I know emily. The official name for this process is hyper activation. Though that's riveting and there's even more the reproductive tract also has to prepare the sperm for one. It eventually meets the egg right now. The sperm is a little overdressed for the occasion. It's got a layer of stuff on that prevents it from binding the egg and molecules in the reproductive tract helps strip off layer so that the sperm is ready to bind. Ooh la la naked sperm. Okay and emily remember the sperm. Don't have is they have no idea where the heck they're going so the egg provides them with a gps it releases these super attractive chemicals that show the sperm where to go. Oh so it's like leaving breadcrumbs for them to follow. Yeah and you have to realize that philippian tubes aren't this straightforward path. It's really complex and winding there. There are tons of little crevices so without those crumbs. The sperm probably wouldn't know where to go. We were taught to think of it as a racetrack. Right but kristen. We know better now if you wanna go with a racetrack idea at least recognized that it's a dynamic race track so it's not like the german audubon. It's more like You know like more like a rainbow road where you have twists and turns and places to fall off and there are checkpoints that you get ask for your license registration and proof of insurance. I'm sorry proof of insurance. What does that mean honestly. That's not too far off from reality. And this brings me to may be the coolest part of all of this. Remember that hostile environment you described earlier. Yeah but you know. I was brainwashed back then in health class and i and i regret saying that because it sounds like the reproductive tract is actually far more helpful than hostile here. You totally but it is true that there are tons of obstacles along the way that seemed to be counterproductive. Like at one point these big immune cells surround the sperm and literally. Eat them. No that's terrifying. Yeah you don't want to be the sperm in that face off so it makes sense that you and me and teachers everywhere described this as a hostile environment but now starting to realize that these obstacles the actually have a purpose. It works to separate sperm. That are dysfunctional. From those that are functional works to separate debris that enters into the reproductive track with quotas and it separates the wheat from the chaff. Shall we say and then it takes what it needs or wants to the site of
Coachella is Canceled
"Six day coachella valley music and arts festival which draws around ninety nine thousand people per day to southern california. Each bring has been canceled again. It's country music cousin. Stagecoach has also been axed for twenty twenty one a riverside county health orders said both festivals were quote gatherings of an international scope unquote so too big a risk to take in a state that still battling some of the highest numbers of covid nineteen cases in the country. It's fair to say that the pandemic has not been kind to the live music industry last march. The two biggest concert promoters in north america live nation and aig presents suspended all of their tours saying in a joint statement that they hope to come back in april. Yes april twenty twenty. We all had high hopes back then right well. April came and went and justin bieber did not come to a city near you. Both live nation and eighty g were forced to make significant staff reductions and their executives took deep. Pay cuts and this. Latest cancellation is more bad news for ag presents. Because it's the parent company of voice which put on the coachella and stagecoach festivals together. The festivals were projected to generate more than seven hundred million dollars in overall economic activity in two thousand nineteen over one hundred million of that was expected to be injected back into the economy of indio california where the festivals are held and on top of that. Nine thousand concert goers were expected to stay in nearby airbnb so that number had doubled from twenty seventeen so the coachella cancellation is a loss for g loss for indios economy. A loss for anyone hoping to rent out their house for the festival and well even the artists scheduled to headliner missing out. That's a gig. That reportedly made arianna guerande a cool eight million. According to variety but the cancellation could mean more spending money. In the pockets of disappointed ticket holders the typical coachella attendee spent around twenty three hundred dollars for tickets parking food and merchandise in two thousand eighteen money magazine reported but that money saved is likely not a salve on the burn for folks who've been waiting for a year to go to coachella and we'll have to keep waiting with coachella cancelled. Ag presents is hoping another big name festival. Firefly scheduled for june in delaware doesn't face the same fate and it's already pushed back. It's new orleans jazz fest. From late april to october of this year in hopes that the covid nineteen pandemic will be less of a threat. Meanwhile rival live nation has is on how las vegas is responding the pandemic in hopes that the city is ready to host. Its electric daisy carnival in may and live nation is already rescheduled. Its bonnaroo festival three times. It's on the calendar. Precip timber penciled. In course
Love in Lockup
"Love is likely the last word on anyone's mind when they envision prison but for many inmates. It's their first and last thought each day a supportive network of friends and family can help prisoners endure the harsh loneliness on the inside without it. The solitude and emotional stress of prison is only destructive. it isn't just a spiritual aig. Loneliness among inmates has real consequences for prisoners and for society at large. Before i continue please note. I am not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist but i have done a lot of research for the show. Clinical psychologist army roku pointed out that loneliness increases both criminality and recidivism or the likelihood that an individual will become a repeat offender. If the aim of jail time is to rehabilitate inmates. It's clear that the emotional impact of such confinement can work against that goal. Julian wendy berto an activist for prison reform and a former inmate herself said of her experience at the beginning. You start making friendships. And then they leave and then you start building up new friendships. And then they leave. It's hard to relate to people when everybody's feeling the same loneliness or emptiness or fear in such a crushing environment. It's no wonder that many inmates are desperate to connect with those on the outside a simple reminder that the outside world hasn't completely forgotten about them goes a long way toward bolstering their morale pen pal organizations are the most common ways in meets connect to the outside world. Participants in a program called prisoners. Pen friends reported that the letters made them feel happier less lonely and more hopeful about their futures though many of these pen pal organizations strive to create only casual friendships. Sometimes the letters lead to more intimate connections. The hope for romance is what attracts many inmates to the programs. And it's only natural for prisoners to dream of finding a partner willing to wait for them on the other side
Getting Rid of Clutter in Your Home and Heart
"The reality is you have dealt with clutter issues in your own home. These are things for the most part. You've learned on the job training right absolutely well from a small child because my my dad was a hoarder. So i've learned this from the ground. Okay so that's an interesting insight. Sometimes god works in pendulum swings. As i call it so you know if you're for example your parents on a serious not come from an alcoholic or home. Some children will tend to move the other direction right. You never you know that ruined my family. I'm never and that's a good thing but you kind of had the pendulum effect with clutter. Yes so when. I was a new mom i was. You know you guys are talking about such a busy stage of life. That's where i was at you. Could it was reflected in my house. I just accumulated all this stuff. And i now understand. There's a spiritual reason for that. But i've also understood that the more i got my house clear of clutter the more i understood about. You know what i believed about god. And what i believed about myself. And so yeah. I'm back at the other side and by the way my house is not picture. Perfect nobody from real simple as coming to take pictures of my house. That's probably sign of healthy too. I feel like we're the good balance. It looks like people live there. Let me put that. Well let me ask you that. Because what does it tell us when we do have a lot of stuff why do we have it and why do we cling to it. Well i think it says different things about different people. One of the things. I think it says is when we keep stuff just in case like the hang onto that sweater just in case i gained ten pounds or five. I understand this is. I tend to step on toes. The toes are usually buried in. Clutter all my jeans in the corner of the clause exactly if we're keeping things out of fear what. I often feel like that saying is one. I don't trust god to provide for my future. So i need to hang onto everything i've ever owned for my entire life so for some people's fear some people it's guilt if they've spent any money on anything in their entire lives. They need to keep it until jesus comes back. Otherwise they consider they hear from their depression era grandparents. You know use it up where it out make do without. And so they're onto things that i actually love that saying but it's only for things that we actually use rano at one point. I looked in my drawer. And i had six editors who in the world except for you know a bakery needs six eg bidders but i kept holding onto them because i just thought well i wear one out i could use another one now wearing eg peter says not my life so we've got the fear we've got the guilt and shame if a and the guilt also is if somebody gave it to you so there's guilt and shame gave something to me and so i need to keep it till both of us. Are you mentioned the ten principles of clutter free home. So let's cover those okay. Just hit him. Okay so i am. The first one is gonna challenge you. Jim make clutter management a daily priority. So you say you know it takes exactly a day to clean out your garage. That i did catch that. What a terrible way to spend saturday. Sorry offals right. I agree. That's why today that's right. You're going to go do it today. But here's what i would say instead. Wouldn't it be better to do a bunch of fifteen minute spurts where you just go in there. You're saying no okay. I like progress. I yes so. That's why i think progress has to be done in small step so like i don't want you to clean your garage for fifteen minutes. I want you to clean your workbench for fifteen minutes. You can make progress on your workbench but cleaning my garage on a saturday. The most depressing. I've ever heard in the english league. Okay good enough okay designate. A place for everything. So i think oftentimes we don't have things you were just talking about bills coming in stuff like that. It's because maybe the place is a little too out of place and so having acute box where everything goes in something like that. My wife's desk would be a better place than as long as she agrees with you. 'cause i wanna to be marriage. Enhancing number three. Don't put it aside. put it away. I tell myself this all the time because what this is doing is taking care of my future. Self if i put it aside that means i have to clean it up but if i put it away the next time. I'm looking for scissors. True or the next time. Somebody calls me and says where scissors. I know where they are number four. Stop being reactive and start being proactive. And what i mean by. That is don't clean because mother-in-law's coming where you should boost should but don't let that be the only reason because what that is stashing dash. Okay don't argue over stuff negotiates space. This is so important for people who are in relationships. Because if you haven't played guitar twelve years you're wounding. Who played guitar to impress that girl. Like he's not gonna get rid of that guitar. But if you say okay you get one guerrilla rack in the garage. I get one guerrilla rack in the garage. That is a way to a peaceful solution about stuff instead of arguing over the actual things only problem. Is you still have to make some choices you. But it's the person's choice you're not saying with the guitar saying hey can guitar exactly well. He's tar and fit on a guerilla old guitar cat. Every guy has an old guitar. I learned one song that guitar right. So let's talk about that guitar. The next thing is don't use storage a way to delay decisions. Okay i yeah. I know right. That's only come to me in the last year. But what i realized is the stuff i had so neatly organized in my storage space in the garage was just delayed decisions. The ones that. I didn't feel i was emotionally able to make young. So once you diagnose the clutter you can dispense with the clutter figure out. What's at the core. Is it fear guilt or shame. What is making you hold onto that or maybe you just have too much stuff going on about the person that says in. This is a fair. I don't want to pay for it again. I don't wanna have to use it in two. Okay aig beater. Let's let me challenge you about okay if you go. You're going to use it in a year if it's a snow blower and you're going to use it in the year to it but if it's a sweater that i liked one time and maybe i don't like it so much anymore but could like it under the right circumstances. Can i trust god enough to get that into the right person's hands okay for enough. I'm not trying to throw the god card. I'm really not. But i really do believe sometimes stuff comes to us and just for a moment and that we're supposed to pass it onto. Yeah things are not relationships
The carnivorous woman a saga from Charles Darwin to Wheatbelt Western Australia
"Yes sir dra okay. All over the world spotted another one. Sorry wearies leash. She'll need gone. I have devoted much time to a class of plants that seem to have reversed the regular order of nature and like avengers of kingdom have turned upon animals incarcerating and finally killing them whether the plants are really hungry and entrapped the animals for food or whether it is only an example of the wanton destructiveness of nature. I leave the reader to judge. Mary treat eighteen eighty five throughout history. The gripe botanical artists have often been women but were many of them infect scientists to just without the endorsement of the botanical establishment which often shunned or ignored them. The paintbrush deemed more appropriate tool for a lady than a microscope. I guess botany has always been an interesting one. Because i suppose that the study of flowers and plants historically was maybe seen as a bit more of a suitable pursuit for the women feminine because of flowers and that sort of thing but still it still also quite mild eliminated. I guess in terms of the scholars in that field throughout history. Well one determined woman on a farm in weight belt western. Australia defied the odds and changed. How the world sore australia's incredible carnivorous plants and listen to artists. So with laura skates of botanical scientist doing her phd on carnivorous plants. Right now i am taking you down a bush trial in pursuit of his story. Oh is that it. Oh cute so this is actually one of the climbing ones. That i was just talking about so you sixty centimeters long and it's just spreading out of an embankment. He and a lot more of them seem to have caught prey on this one. I think it might be dresser. Menzies the i ultra ceramic grant though draw sarah makram throw or the bridal rainbow with its little sunlight sticky leaves hence the name sanju. It was a man. English naturalist biologist charles darwin n-i-l-l-a-s who is a first credited with helping us understand that coniferous plants lived off flesh. Here's particularly interested in dresser. There's a european species coatdress harare folio which he did a lot of his experiments on so he would put different things on the leaves like for example. He would put a piece of sand orbit of gloss and not really see any reaction. But if you put something like little piece of aig or some meat juices suddenly the plant would have reaction to that and the tentacles would start to wrap around. So what he basically showed is that these plants are reacting to substances that have not to general protein in them so so the plants i almost instantaneously they know not that'd be the descend concrete that Cheese like an eight that. Yeah exactly so you know. They don't waste any energy wrapping around something. That's not going to be nutritious. They instead wraparound when it's going to be something that will give them a good boost. Trajan i mean even in my phd. Thesis i go right back to dahlan's original studies and some of his original thoughts and ideas of things that with testing to this day and so he really liked the groundwork for the foundation. Full kind of verse plant research but one american woman was on the case of carnivorous plants. Around the same time as darwin. I will give you my observations on draw surra which seemed to have escaped the notice of botanists and she's struck up a correspondence with darwin in a series of letters from eighteen. Seventy one four years before he got to publishing his influential book on insect diverse plants. I had two or three species of these pretty plants growing for window ornaments and soon saw the deal on. The folio was a fly trap of considerable power when it comes to congress plants. One of the women that i kind of came across in my studies was married trait and i came across her. Because he in allen's book insectivores plants. There was a little footnote. That talked about what mary trait had done to contribute to that particular chapter and i thought wow. Who's mrs trait. I want to find out more about him.
Jack Leahy - Enterprise Ethereum Alliance
"Jackie young the membership director for the enterprise. Enduring alliance really happy to be here today. Thanks for having me on again gently at the ea. The is really focused around enabling organizations to adopt and use during technology and their daily business operations really focused on empowering the ecosystem more generally within the overall you dear ecosystem manda Personally from background. Perspective and come from the world of the world of enterprise technology consulting and sales. I've done a number of large implementations and deployments with a number fortune five hundred organizations are spending across from a devops strategy to cloud operationalisation to supply gene inventory optimization via learning models and artificial intelligence and so i have a pretty widespread enterprise consulting background as i had mentioned most notably around the microsoft stack but have done work across long. Vm ware Across most of that relatively traditional it architectural stacks and twenty seventeen. I started to get more and more interested in crypto decentralized computing space and starting to get more interesting more interested overall for me he perspective and starting to pay really close attention chew how many enterprises and the people that i was interfacing with were really developing on ethereal and the overall platform and again The most recent that i had had was focused on consulting around service now and the mic stack and i saw how much microsoft was investing in jail their azure. You're deaf jet predicated on the theory ecosystem largely and i started just pay more close attention to began. How many organizations were really building with any theorem and had the opportunity late in two thousand nineteen to go head first into the game ecosystem and within the blockchain world and Got the opportunity over as a membership director at the ea starting in january and so twenty twenty has been quite an interesting year and been really needs deep by ever since really glad you were able to make it to the podcast. Today excited to hear about What you've experienced the sarum ecosystem and what things are going on at the ea. I don't. I don't know a ton about the serum enterprise alliance. Maybe a little background My perspective there wasn't much Thoughts about win crypto first came out you know of of making this Really tailored to enterprise Until a theory. I'm came out with a smart contracts and and things of that nature and then bencher price base really took to a theory in ways that i didn't imagine Initially it could you tell me a little bit more about the and what it is and who are the members and how how does one become a member. and they ultimate goal of the organization. Absolutely see that's about saddening and you're you're spat on as far as enterprises building any theorem. And i think that's largely predicated on many of the technological foundations the backbone of ethiopian and it being more of a developer focus application tom development focus blockchain competing system and as a result of that. That's why there's been such widespread adoption From enterprises and more emerging technology organizations like And from an ea perspective Really rigid with some founding members Back in two thousand seventeen Some of those included consensus. Gp morgun intel a number of others. Who are still very involved within the. Ea is well as a number of other organizations and what they're really focused on is having an ecosystem of best practices to build within the theory. Him from both aig Private permission boxing. Perspective to public may net perspective as well and The as was largely built dine. The enterprise theorem specification which we are now nearing version. Six of it and the specification is finalized. Which we're really proud of and that's really kind of morphed into the whole genesis of like corum that's been bill dead consensus and jp morgan. I'm now Formerly done under consensus. And that's where a liar lot. A lot of the work had been predicated on in the past and organizations. Join a again just to be with really like an expert network of people to kind of collaborate on the things that they're challenged with within their organization and how to take Some of the the internal capital and resources that we have our disposal and how to leverage that more effectively within one's own business and so we've seen a number of different creations within the ea from quorum with large built within the token taxonomy initiative free cell framework token taxonomy and building out smart contracts were actively from the business protocol which is hugely important right now and his gaining just a ton of momentum and excitement within the industry and now more again bringing in die each us which were incredibly excited about in. That was just announced on this past month on largely focused on creating registry around safe smart contracts so that users and customers that interface with can be more confident and reliable within the smart contracts that they're leveraging utilize utilizing a Let's go back to core. Would you say that is kind of the biggest win for the enterprise space and What what exactly is core. My i have a a little bit of understanding that it's was developed. I think initially by j. P. morgan chase and then Be behind consensus to do it and Now j. p. morgan chase Purchased that aspect of consensus. Are they working together. and corum is kind of a. It's a side chain to a theory where or is it. Is it a a completely separate based off of theorem blockchain. I wanna make sure. I do justice of this and i know that the consensus team and some others within the ea could even speak more intelligently and effectively to this but quorum is really built on like a is a private permission chain built on the enterprise etiam specification and so a number of organizations developed best practices around in enterprise etiam standard that could be trusted and relied upon within organizations and A number of these organizations where the kind of the genesis and the create creators of this and jp morgan was largely behind the creation. Corum early with In collaboration within members of the and notably consensus of course. And as of just over the last quarter i would say consensus acquired that in full and now is perjury even more closely with. Did you be more again arching team if you will Largely led by christine. Moy and the honesty in there and there's been a ton of exciting announcements relative to what their team is doing right now but Consensus has now brought in corum And what we're seeing within the industries who such a big movement Around utilizing obviously the public made net and many believe that that's the future will continue to collect you but what we're seeing is actual in live production. Instances we've seen the most modern work around enterprise right now and consensus has been a large driver behind that as well as a number of other organizations consensus driven that in a large way up to this point in time.
Interview With Bennie F. Johnson
"All right so tell us who you are and what you do all right. My name is beneath johnson. And i'm the new executive director of a professional organization for design. And i know you've been in the role now for for several months. It was announced earlier this year. But congratulations to you. Thank you thank you. It still feels new. It feels a bit surreal. We started in january with the announcement that was my first day in the office. And you know before we know it. We're here under quarantine. And i'm back here in dc so it. It still feels new but a lot of work and a has happened since we started. So where were you when you first got the news that you got the role you know. It's funny i was in the car in. Dc about have lunch with a dear friend. And i received a phone call it said. Are you available to talk in a couple of minutes. So it's always like that pre call to a call. And then i received the word that i was selected to be the next executive director. Now our audience of course has heard of aig. A if anyone. I think has been listening to vision. Path that links at least since twenty fourteen or two thousand fifteen. They know about aig but for those who don't know who might be new to this conversation might be new to you and organization. Can you just talk about what. Aig a is and also what specifically attracted you to this role. What is is a legacy organization in many ways. It's a hundred year plus professional association. And there aren't that many hundred year organizations you can imagine but. Ai has been at the center of design design community design education profession for larger than assists century. And so what attracted me to spent the last ten years working with professional organizations and helping them reinvent reimagined and position themselves for a contemporary world. And so the opportunity to come into space. I'd always been designed always been central part of my experience professionally personally. So they have the opportunity to take the experience that i had working with other professional associations and apply to design professional organization was a really big draw for me. My background is really been coming into organizations to try to help pivot in move from what has been to build a better future of what can be so. I saw an opportunity. Here with edgy. A. and space to help the organization expand along with the design professional expanding right. You can't have the profession expand the professional organization stay the same. So what does an average day look like for you. You said earlier you were in new york. Now you're back in. Dc what does it look like running this organization like this remotely. The first couple of weeks. The average day was starting off monday mornings hopping on the train. Amtrak in heading from dc union station to tribeca new york and spending the bulk of the week. They're meeting a connecting with design leaders and professionals on students having meetings and getting acclimated to the organization. So that was about two months of that kind of back and forth. After we went into fool states that you can imagine of and we all have kind of lived through our pandemic this became. How do we think about the organization in physically from running from my living room. Dining room the favourite corner in my house right in and it quickly became. It wasn't a question of where. I was physically but using the tools and the opportunity to bring together our team to deliver and build for our profession. You know how do we deliver our mission. Yes we're used to being in office spaces in traveling. But what can we do more dynamic way. What's really nice about edgy. A is we were already positioning ourselves to be more virtual part of even my being able to come in at the role i lived in. Dc and so having ceo who is not based in the office was deliberate point for the organization as we stands right now only about sixty to sixty five percent of my team is located in new york the rest of the distributed across the country. And i think that's an incredible opportunity in advantage for us. And i think there's probably important to note here because when people think of aig a they think of the chapters. Each of those chapters has their own kind of bored and everything. Those are not employees of lateral organization. Itself is pretty small right. Those are nine employees so we are what you know. Many people haven't had experience with but we are federated model and it's very common in professional associations and spaces we all exist under a core mission in brand right that his asia but we're network community so we have seventy five chapters who are individual chapters. They have their own. Bores volunteer leaders were connected with them but they're connected through affiliation and grew an overall network to larger aig a mission brand. We also have two hundred student chapters across colleges and universities so the power of a federated model is just that you have this connection to community at a really directing granular level. But you're tied together in the national office in which i lead gets to serve as really kind of the infrastructure and the backbone organization that at its heart in all of the chapters and the student groups and are forced to be to do that work that they get
Montrezl Harrell: Lakers wanted me more than Clippers did
"With the media yesterday for the first time since. Leaving for the leaving clippers for the lakers. The reigning sixth man of the year joining the lakers was a business decision when he was asked. If the clippers wanted him back he replied asli. It seemed that way. Does it shannon. Does this tell you. I think the biggest thing is that maybe The clippers treads didn't feel like the clippers made him a priority. He's like. I'm the sixth man of the year. And here we are a couple of days into it. You would like to think they probably had been having conversations with rich paul at some point in time and says okay. Yes we want to. We want to bring him back. This what we're looking look. This is what we're looking the rain that we're looking to pay. What are you. What are you looking for Maybe trades personality. Get when you come up. Like trees transplanting. I don't even know if he was drafted. But when you come up like he did scrapping and trying to fight. Play hard practice hard every single game. You bring hawaiian. Paul george in there and he thought their practice on the court in those guys are sitting on the sideline or those guys are missing game. That's gonna rub him the wrong way. It looks to me from the outside. Of like i said i don't know it looks like from the outside looking in skip. That's not gonna change and paul george. You the superstars moving forward. They're probably gonna take practices. Probably gonna take gave up and it was eager to move. Let tread go be a free agency as opposed to have that conflict in running back. So that's what it looks like meets get. I could be totally off base with this but it seems to me because we heard rumbling either. They upset that guy's missing with practicing when they wanted to guys playing when they wanted to and that rav some in the locker room. If i had to guess it would probably be. That would be rubbed the wrong way themselves. But this is a good deal for trae of you look at it trays serge. Ibaka and triple double t. Basically got the same deal. The mid level exception with a second year option with us a team or player option. That's what they got shooters. Got the money bretons. Look what he got. A boat on from sacramento. He signed that big offer sheet. Big skip really aig got didn't get the money because they're not shooting putting a premium on shooting the threes and scope. I like i like the lakers. Getting trans because i believe they're getting a guy. That's extremely motivated. He didn't play his best basketball win. The season resume. Let's not sugarcoat. He didn't play once he got to the bubble and maybe his grandmother. He had a lot on his mind. He didn't come back with the same ferocity that he had. We live because up until that point skip. He was a monster in when he came back. He wasn't bad but it didn't feel like in to him because it all it matters to him. He didn't feel like the clippers prioritize pill or they didn't send the they didn't give him an indication that they wanted him back as much as he thought he should have been wanted back he says okay. I'll make a business decision They got this over there. I won't like you like you say rondo. He wasn't going to have to move. You gotta move where he might have to have won the platinum the other than the go so he might you know going down there to the marina which neither the apply anything close by

Scientists Find The Biggest Soft-Shelled Egg Ever, Nicknamed 'The Thing'
"This next story is about a strange fossil found in and Arctic as NPR's Nell Greenfieldboyce. Report scientists were astounded when they finally realized what it was a couple years ago, a paleontologist named Julia Clark was visiting a colleague at a natural history, museum, and Chile the two were chatting about fossils SINISA. Hey, you know you should see this thing we collected. And he said we call it the thing. The thing wasn't a bone, but what was it exactly? No one knew it was about. The same size and shape is a deflated football. I just take one look at this thing, and it's the thing and. That is a giant deflated AIG a soft shelled egg to be precise, the biggest one ever found now today some snakes and turtles and lizards lay eggs with soft flexible shells, but they're rare to find in the fossil record. We did not realize said soft shelled eggs could even get this big Clark who works at the University of Texas at Austin collaborated with her colleague from Chile and. And other researchers to study this egg in the journal Nature. They say it was likely laid by a Moses Sore, a twenty foot, long marine lizard that lived some sixty six million years ago. The enormous egg thrilled paleobiologist like yaws Meena Vamon of university, I mean just thought Oh. This is fantastic. That's because she was making her own discoveries about ancient soft shelled eggs from dinosaurs in. In the past scientists assumed that dinosaurs had hard shelled eggs like their living, relatives, Crocodilians and birds, now in the same issue of the journal Nature Vehement and her colleagues described fossils from two very different dinosaurs. We're definitely here dealing with the very first evidence for completely soft-shell non mineralized shells. Their chemical analysis shows that the young dinosaur offspring were surrounded by soft shells much like the. The shells of turtle eggs, vitamin says it looks like the earliest dinosaurs started out with soft shelled eggs hard shelled eggs evolved later. The dinosaur calcified egg is something that is not ancestor that is not set of primitive feature of all dinosaurs, and now that researchers have shown how to find soft shelled eggs in the fossil record.

Iran protests: Who are the opposition in the country?
"The latest protests in Iran over the Iranian military's unintentional downing of Ukrainian jetliner are different from past ask protests over rigged elections rising gas prices and what Americans liked to call voter suppression this time. The protests cover a much wider area of the country this this time protesters did not chant death to America or death to Israel. This anger was directed at the theocratic regimes handling of the missile strike. This time a president president of the United States tweeted his support for the protesters at English and Farsi and warned the world is watching Democrats. Were nearly silent about the protests even though Oh they once boldly voiced opposition to totalitarian regimes interviewed Sunday on. ABC's This Week House Speaker. Nancy Pelosi appeared to minimize the significance insult demonstrations host George Stephanopoulos asked her if she supported the demonstrations and whether it would be good for the regime to collapse. The protesters are are. I pro testing as I understand this brand of protesters about the fact that plane went down and many students were on that plane and these are largely students in the street. Come again the far left which increasingly dominates the Democratic Party predictably took a rand side against their own country. Actress rose McGowan tweeted. Dear Iran the USA has disrespected your country or flag. People fifty two percent of US humbly apologize is we want peace with your nation. We are being held hostage by a terrorist regime. We do not know how to escape. Please do not kill us. And then she ended with a Hashtag Solo Money Aig. SHUTT- responded to McGowan and many others on the far left in National Review magazine. He wrote quote while it may be tempting to dismiss McGowan's attempts attempts at whit her line of reasoning however faulty is echoed by nearly all the Democrats on the campaign trail and by virtually every Middle East specialist in the media and in academia unquote. Now why aren't the Democratic presidential candidates asked if they share such views. Perhaps it's because those asking the questions don't want to do anything thing that would harm the chances of one of the Democrat presidential candidates beating president trump in the November election. Does that sound too harsh. We'll consider that ninety. Two percent set of media coverage of the president has been negative. According to a study by the media research center could the protests in Iran. Follow the pattern of other freedom movements like solidarity in in Poland or demonstrations that led to the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Soviet Union or could they end a stalemate with increasingly brutal repression as as in Venezuela. It's too early to say but we should at least expect people who enjoy the blessings of liberty including the right to say very foolish things to support the efforts of others who want to free themselves from totalitarian oppression
What it Means to Be Creative with Vanessa Dewey
"Vanessa is as a community builder marketing professional and currently works at Adobe as the senior project marketing manager. That's a mouthful yes it is. Hopefully this is not actually. I just left on Friday. So it's all new. Okay so my guess my first question it was gonNA be anyways sort of if you WANNA talk to us a little bit about what you're doing. Now what your journey has been up to this point and what you're going to be doing. I guess now in the future shirt. We'll definitely I apologize about that brand new. Everything's happened so quick. No not necessarily I looked at today just to make sure everything was updated. But we don't don't always update linked in with our life right. Yeah especially when things just happened. I'm a little slow to that right now. Yeah no worries I guest. I'll just say overall my career path is definitely not linear. I'm definitely not tick the box type of creative My background is in graphic design for about eight years years. I was in house designed for Mattel branding and packaging orca across multiple verticals of the play patterns of toys And then I serve at a certain time of my career halfway through at during that venture at Mattel I decided to served take something else because I realized there is no outside. Craig is coming inspire a creative community of four hundred to six hundred plus creatives in Los is Angeles so I took on while having a full production schedule realize I need to take on and create the speaker series grassroots and over the course of five years built up from from quarterly to buy weekly bringing design. Thought leaders like Brian Collins. To wwl moment I Leela Nash. Meyer wow what a great idea it was it. It was in theory but that's was in essence in two thousand thirteen. When I started doing that it start planted the seeds because at the same time to I had a thought? What would you next my career so for me? I want is see and found other opportunities to infuse leadership and other types types of opportunities to help elevate and evolve myself as a creative and as a leader so the speaker series is also you know as you mentioned. Aig I got involved. volved in the Los Angeles chapter quite a bit and over the years that served helped me in an in a way to supplement where I was looking for that I was in say per se getting as IC Mattel not to say that. The community wasn't amazing but still like that extra in two thousand sixteen. I think this is just a year or so before I bet you my life I hit my. What's next month in my career? I was no longer inspired and just I could do packing branding. But it just wasn't singing to me in my God and then at the same time I decided to leave. My husband divorced him so so there's so much and what I ended up doing was professionally. I was able to take a role and evolve it and creates a so. I guess that's experiential educational and inspirational called the hub ultimately that's supported by four hundred six hundred plus Craybas at the headquarters of Matale. So I continue my speaker series and added onto that by Craig. An Internal Speaker series support at highlight creatives leaders in our community. At mattel a podcasts. Help my L. A. D. My led with crave career path and as a side note this role actually dead. The COO transitioned into H.. Ourselves and learning development so I go home ready packaging to hr so that lasted for almost two years. And I quit when I went into that role I went to a w maximum San Diego and one of my friends is one of the community managers for the creative jams community on team and I went up to see if there was any inside of eighteen was coming enterprise side so as it as it turned out they were working towards that end in summer of two thousand seventeen. I was part of the pilot for Adobe Craig Gems Enterprise Foul. KABC's what okay. So crazy is who don't know okay crave GM's as core. It's part is a to park. They have experienced part inspiration apart hands on Their community and there's also enterprise now but basically basically the format is you have teams of craters two to four depending varies but having teams creatives have asserted brief learn a certain tool from adobe. CBS Adobe Dobie Stockton W rush and then have an our tasks over three hours to address the brief while leverage these these tools rules you then also bring in thought leaders such as local design leaders or even just creative leaders anybody to EXPARC inspiration depending on what you want the talk about and the theme and also the end you bring in all craters and having do presentations of their final deliverables also Two percent of the teams and there's usually prizes and also it's A. It's a nice experience. Yeah it's a hack actually creates a little more elmo fun and not just a hack no. It's just a lot of fun. I actually participated in a creative jam here in Albuquerque. Oh Yeah my team member and I actually won the the choice choice award or whatever the thing is but yeah. I just wanted to kind of explain what that is for the people that don't understand we haven't had one around here in a while so just options is to explain a little bit but so when it happened was coming into twenty twenty eighteen. This program was then adopted onto the Create a quote enterprise side the marketing so I was brought over to join the team. And that's where I ended up so what from branding. Packaging Design Zayn into more of a creative HR learning development role and then that translates very well into this Role within the enterprise side and had it was a great opportunity. What I did was each of basically what I was doing it Mattel's then able to translate across in essence to different customers? Key customer customer so over the course of the first year has A. I was lucky enough to be able to help. Establish that in Europe so I was working with customers curate atheist. BESPOKE EVENTS FOR BBC Vice Media Sky TV to to pet lebrons. I did some in North America to and then I came back to North America Because to focus more on this last year in particular last feels those focusing on North America helping out the team here see. We're kind of split living indeed. Yes correct for the first. While months to fourteen months I was splitting time. Actually between Los Angeles and London which was mental? And then and then then I started phased out of the Arab side but then I still at once. I moved to New York I was for workwise those in New York but still continued when I could because I could work remotely at times. I was in London when I over the course of over the course they are right built a really lovely and inspiring design network and tried of add. Some really dear friends over there so I just could've. That's where everything's to me so I would always go back there when I can. So that's amazing. So are you at liberty to kind of speak to. Oh what your next step is what you're up to right now before we go onto our topic for today sure. No I definitely can't so basically I had a moment of clarity clarity literally Thanksgiving Week. I was elected and I had all these different mope conversations with people and just something clicked and I'm just actually. She probably take a pause to the last three years. I've taken a pause between METALLICA Dobie. I took two days off a Saturday Sunday. which is not a weekend? So I'm just figuring house and delving into what I really WANNA do some side projects and then having conversations I haven't been able to have And a few other things too okay. So what sort of side projects if I can pry. I love people side project so for several years. People keep saying you need to write. You need a ride. So I'M GONNA be pitching some articles goals designed based on creative base but also to one of my passions besides building communities connecting people and is coffee as you probably And you post lovely lovely pictures of coffee a thank you so basically what I'm GonNa try to do is also create a dialogue Building community meaning but more or less talking about coffee also brought it broader crates. So I'm trying to figure out a way to pitch a formatted adage series. So if I'm in London I'll pick three craters or three people within even the food industry and go to their three favorite coffee or wine wine shops and talk about it and go from there some. I'm playing around with different types of not just doing creative or design industry focus writings but other also infusing so my other passions. Yeah that is really exciting. Thank you and then all of this. I'll be taking my pause in in London so I bought a one way so London and the man so We had a long layover. I I was in Europe In at the beginning of October and we had a really long layover in London So so we we had like a four hour chance to just kind of explore as quick as we could. It was the day of that crazy brexit thing on a Saturday. So loggers augurs and like subway places. Where like blocked off and stuff but I definitely want to visit again when it's probably less chaotic and when we have more time to the hang out there but it was it was really beautiful? It is there something unique about the design community and just the creative community as a whole and then also so to a city. It's Io's feels like little hamlets piece together so you have a high straight with just bustling but then you can go off a couple of blocks and you're quite canals and so it's a nice. It's a nice
How Jennifer White-Johnson Became a Photographer, Graphic Designer, and Professor
"Name is Jennifer White Johnson. And I'm a multidisciplinary artist so photography graphic design and then I'm also a professor a visual communications and digital media art at Bowie State University. So I know that you wear a lot of hats both literally and figuratively a deadly. But let's let's start off talking about your work as an art and design educator You mentioned being a professor of visual communications and in our state. What courses do you teach so I teach all across the spectrum of Foundation Asian art and then also senior thesis and exit portfolios So it's really great like I get a chance to dabble in an intro to like digital art on and what that means for non majors and then also students that are just getting into like art making and what that means for them and you know so if they're painters or illustrators they wanna get into like a digital kind of experience. Can't I help them navigate through the tools unlike the different experiences that they wanna be able to learn and then also you know like traditional like intro to graphic design courses and getting them excited about typography and like font design and then also getting them to understand design history and then what that looks like as an h. b. c. student and you know kind of creating artwork that they often don't get a chance to see or that they may be one alike change like the narrative a little bit and then also senior thesis so again getting not all undergraduate programs have students like create an actual. You know like senior thesis capstone and so. It's really great that they the students it's a group show but they still get a chance to to kind of create like this really amazing like legacy that they wanNA leave behind and they get a chance to kind of pick any topic that kind of relates to their concentration tation whether it's fashion design or advertising Animation Motion Graphics. And so it's great like I love that. I get a chance to meet. So many different students teach on so many different levels because it's very interdisciplinary program. It also sounds like because you're teaching such a wide spectrum of classes you almost end up sort of being a student's guide from starting out as a freshman all the way up until they graduate like you get to see them and really evolve as a designer. Yeah that's like one of my favorite things I think now because I've been teaching there since two thousand eleven and so i. I think that I've seen maybe like three or four classes from freshman year all the way to senior year. And it's just so amazing and like you said just saying them develop seeing them evolve and then seeing them kind of pick up all different types of lake design an art art stat house that they want to be able to like incorporate into what they do and these kids are like Soto. They're amazing they're like their their their their own. Little mini like designed burns like in their own right and I feel like a lot of people. Don't really get a chance to realize. Or maybe they. Sometimes they get harped on 'cause they're like oh well they like. Can't you just focus on just doing this and kind of like solidify place in this particular type of of of work. But it's like like the students know that they WANNA do. They WANNA be photographers. They WANNA be designers. They want to create their own brands. And just like I can't say no to that out it to just kind of let them be you have to let them create because that's one thing that we kind of push and strive for is them getting out there and collaborating and not working working in a silo. So I love that. I get a chance to Kinda see a lot of little collective swarming within the school and then also outside side of the school and I can't I can't push that enough like and I'm so happy when they kind of take it upon themselves to to do that so no that's that's that's really good. It's it's funny you mention that because I was just talking with someone recently. I think they're like a like a film student. Probably at Georgia state in here in Atlanta. And how do we can you know how we connected. He was one of my lifts Drivers one time and I remember he was talking about are being designer and I gave them my information and say reach out to me so we've kind of been keeping in touch and he's been talking about really trying to get out there and like find a job. He's in school right now. I think he's maybe junior so he's like really defined the job and I'm trying to find a job and I'm trying to stress upon him like you need to build a a website or or get a brand or something get brand but like build your brand up so when you're ready to graduate you actually have work that can show for it and it's so interesting how I think people can be so focused on the end results that they don't realize kind of everything else that can go into it which can help make you successful past getting getting just that end result. Let's say you get that job. That's not the end once you get the job like what about the next job. Or what have you get tired of this job and you WanNa do something something different like you have to think about that as you're kind of coming up I think especially now as a student because there's so many ways to be a part of this industry that don't involve going to school so if you you know this is not the sort of hard on education. But you don't necessarily have to even go that route to be a designer so it's an interesting time right now. Yeah and so. That's why I'm always really excited. That like you were saying the students they become like these mini little like you know entrepreneurs and and we stressed that a lot like a buoy in. It's just you know what are the. How're you building those relationships water? Are you doing. What are you making where you going? Where you showing up? What you know folks like aligning yourself with? What collectives are you aligning? Aligning yourself with and it's awesome just like being like in DC and No close to Baltimore and being able to kind of. There's enough stuff stuff happening that we push the students to go to the apart of that they really don't have any excuse to just do not like WanNa get out there on a share air and WanNa you know propel like their their art forms forward and so the and I think one of the key things is just mood getting Making sure that they stay motivated in we have to work so hard to just put people in their path. Make sure that those paths are also accessible so that they feel like Oh. These paths are like a reflection of me like I can see myself being a part of this world in. It's not like Oh my professors just trying to you know like forced me to make these connections are these networks. But it's like no like this is how this particular you know. Aig Chapter can like like really benefit me because they want to mentor me. They want to you know. Continue to kind of like see me through and collaborate with me and so it's been amazing thing I think that's what makes educating at HBU. So fun is that you know. People want to be able to continue to provide accessible title opportunities for students of Color. They see how necessary it is and how important it is and it's just really about. The responsibility is huge. As you know the work is huge because I have to continues making those those waves and setting those pats for the students but I need a lot of help. Oh I need a lot of help from the outside community you know collective to con to continue to Kinda like create those paths and I mean and it's it's

North Korea, Kim Jong Hoon And President Trump discussed on Ben Shapiro
"Is that North Korea is back in the missile business. According to US news and World Report North Korea on Thursday launch eight launch to short range missiles, marking the second weapons test in less than a week and further training US led efforts for denuclearizing the Korean peninsula. The South Korean joint chiefs of staff announced the launch and a statement saying the missiles were fired from the northwest city of couse, oh and traveled roughly two hundred and sixty miles to the east. There can go shares are currently in South Korea for discussions on how to break the impasse following too high level summits between President Donald Trump in North Korean leader, Kim Jong UN that failed to secure any lasting changes launch comes less than a week. After North Korea fired several short-range missiles on Saturday was the first weapons test since November twenty seventeen Trump has previously cited North Korea's lull in missile nuclear test as evidence that his outreach to the hermit kingdom was proving successful North Korea's ministry afford affairs defended Saturdays. Launch as a routine and self-defensive military drill. Analysts had the missile trajectory and the distance traveled. We're not indicative of ballistic weapons, none of the White House Trump immediately commented on the launch on Thursday. The president tweeted shortly after the Saturday. We'll let you believe Kim quote realizes the great economic potential of North Korea and will do nothing to interfere ended. Adding he also knows within and does not want to break his promise to me. Now, I have always been super skeptical of President Trump's personal approach to diplomacy with Kim Jong Hoon. I really don't believe that the president just by making. Is it Kim Jong Hoon is somehow going to convince them to give up his nuclear weapons, which after all are the only reason it can juggle it still in power. What we have is an intractable situation, which the only thing we want from Kim Jong Hoon is the only thing he will never be willing to give because it's the only thing that prevents him from being taken out. If all Kim Jong Hoon had where conventional weapons there'd be a serious move for regime change in North Korea with nuclear weapons makes it very difficult to talk about regime change, and so Kim is going to act out and he's going to lash out and he's going to get concessions from the west. He's been doing this for for ten years. He's been doing this as long as before before him his father. Did this Kim Jong Il did this loan before Kim Jong food and his father did it before him hills? Some did it before that. So we have long records of North Korean leadership manipulating the western media manipulating western leaders by supposedly getting violence, and then backing off just in time to receive some sort of subsidy from the west the only thing that can really be done in North Korea is to contain them militarily and to pressure China to do something to topple the regime or prepare some sort of. Move inside the military to get rid of Kim Jong Hoon very difficult to do that. When there's very little access to North Korea itself. But the notion that President Trump had broken the impasse that some great breakthrough had happened that Kim Jong had decided to rejoin the world simply because Trump asked him to that. I always thought that was foolish. I thought it was also dangerous because Kim Jong Il had been legitimised on the international stage by the president of the United States seeing the North Korean flags giant gulag states in the North Korean flag flying alongside the American flag in negotiations when we're not talking about an existential threat to the United States like the USSR negotiate with the USSR because you have to negotiate with USSR not because you want to negotiate with the USSR necessarily Kim Jong Hoon wants to be seen as an as an international power player, particularly domestically. So he's not threatened by his own military. That was a mistake for President Trump to grant him all that credibility. And of course, there's been controversy over the handling of outta warmbier and all the rest, Kim traveled to eastern Russia. Just last month to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin to discuss how the two countries could cooperate representing their first face-to-face meeting in North Korean leader's first trip to the country in almost a decade. That is probably not a coincidence that he met with Russia, and then started firing missiles again, I'm sure they've led Putin is all too happy to have North Korea threatening America from afar. Kim in Trump's meeting in Vietnam in February ends at an impasse. Because America insisted that North Korea denuclearize killing gangs mandated that the us provide sanctions relief. I earlier this week. The Pentagon announced it had ceased efforts to recover the remains of American war dead citing an inability to contact their North Korean counterparts. You will recall that President Trump had touted that it said that the big results from this meeting is that America's Korean war dead were coming home. Apparently that was not true. Then a phone call on Tuesday following the Saturday launch from purportedly encouraged South Korean president moon Jae in to continue providing food aid to the north a crisis, both South Korea, and the United States Pyongyang has manufactured saying it's timely, and we'll be a positive move. It is unclear why we want to continue sending food aid to North Korea. When the entire crisis is manufactured by the governments and their goal in having shipments. Made to them is to enrich the regime. The recent launches make things particularly awkward for moon Jae in moon Jae in the South Korean president is part of what is called the sunshine administration over there wants to open relations with Kim Jong Hoon. On Tuesday moon, it touted his administration's achievements in an op Ed writing that the sounds of gunfire have disappeared in the air on CNN the ground around the Korean peninsula. And no that is not correct. Just hours before the defense ministry confirmed the missile test. Moon's official Twitter account posted a picture of his meeting with Kim as the two officials smiled with the quotation piece has become a part of everyday life. Yeah. It turns out that trusting one of the world's worst, dictators is a mistake. Meanwhile, President Trump's administration is very weird and how it operates in terms of foreign policy. One of the reasons that it's very weird is because all of his subordinates basically operate as free agents. And then every so often he sort of inserts himself. Latest example of this. According to the Washington Post US authorities now seized a North Korean ship used to sell coal allegedly in violation of international sanctions that is the first such move by Justice department officials as they ratchet up enforcement efforts against the regime in Pyongyang Justice department officials on Thursday confirmed the vessel. The wise honest is approaching us territorial waters in American Samoa in coordination with US marshals end, the coastguard Attorney General John Denver's assistance to AIG. Emerson the sanction-busting ship is now out of service. So this came just hours after North Korea launched the pair of short range missiles Eleanor. It's funny for a president who declares that. He is a realist is a foreign policy realist, and he cares about foreign policy realism hard nose negotiation when it comes to his actual negotiations strategy, the sort of personal overtures, the what if I make you a video about how nice North Korea will be when you have some when you have some ocean front hotels that sort of stuff is not realistic the realistic perspective on foreign policy suggests realism realism suggests that realpolitik meeting the interest of the states are what is it issue? Look if Kim Jong UN wanted to open up his state and become more economically prosperous. He could do it right now. He's at right. This very instant all he has to do is give up those nuclear weapons and declared that he's going to democratize his country. That's all he has to do. But you'll never knew that obviously why. Because personal power matters most to the Kim family some of the worst blights on human leadership of the last fifty to seventy years. The fact that the Trump administration on the one hand you've got Trump offering the outstretched arm on the other hand, you got the geo J cracking down on North Korea via sanctions, it's pretty incoherent. It's pretty
