The Last US Civil War Pension
"Triplet was born in Nineteen thirty in Wilkes County North Carolina Sixty five years after the end of the civil war. How she ended up receiving civil war pension is one of those stories that you wouldn't believe if it wasn't true. But when you do the math, it actually does workout. Her father was most triplet was a veteran of the civil war. He had the distinction of having fought for both the confederacy and the Union. He was a member of the fifty third North Carolina infantry who fought in the battle of Gettysburg. On the way to Gettysburg most fell ill and was hospitalized the illness probably saved his life because most of his unit was either killed or wounded during the battle. After he recovered, he deserted the confederates and joined up with the third north, Carolina mounted infantry which fought for the union. The unit was known as Kirks raiders after commander Colonel, George Washington. Kirk. After the war Mos- returned to North Carolina got married and started a family his wife Mary passed away in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety. As with many older civil war veterans, they would often take younger second wives especially during the Great Depression as their pension was considered a source of stable income. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four at the age of seventy eight MOS married his second wife Alita who was twenty nine years old Mohsen Alita had five children. One of them Irene was born in one, thousand, nine, thirty when Mos- was eighty-three. Irene was just eight years old when her father died at the age of ninety two after returning home from a civil war veterans reunion. Irene had a cognitive disability which made her eligible to continue to receive her father civil war pension after his death as a quote, helpless child of a veteran. She received her father's pension of seventy three dollars and thirteen cents every month from her father's death in one thousand, nine, thirty, eight to her death in. Twenty twenty. The amount was never for inflation. The entire time it's estimated she received approximately seventeen thousand dollars over the course of her life. In addition to having received the last civil war pension, she was also the last child of a civil war veteran. The second to last child of a civil war veteran also had an interesting story in two thousand. Eighteen Fred Upton passed away at the age of ninety seven. His father was William H Upton. Who is a civil war veteran and the former governor of the state of Wisconsin who was elected in eighteen ninety four. Because of the occurrence of young women marrying much older men with pensions, the passing of the last civil war widow wasn't that long ago either in two thousand and eight motty Hopkins died at the age of ninety three in thousand, nineteen, thirty, four at the age of nineteen she married eighty six year old William Cantrell who served as a sixteen year old soldier in the confederate army. Blast Union widow was Gertrude Janeway who passed away in two thousand three. The last surviving documented veteran of the civil war was Albert Wilson who died at the age of one, hundred, six in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, six he was a fourteen year old drummer boy in the first Minnesota. Heavy. Artillery Regiment. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, six there was an episode of the TV Game Show I've got a secret with a ninety five year old man named Samuel Seymour. The panelists had to guess what the guest secret was. Samuel Seymour. Was the last surviving witness to Abraham Lincoln's assassination. He was a five year old boy was taken affords theater and said in the balcony across the theater from the present it. there. Is a clip of the appearance on Youtube and I highly recommend viewing it if you're interested in such things. The. Last surviving person who was born as a slave in the United States was Peter Mills who died in Nineteen seventy-two he was born into slavery in eighteen sixty one and live to be one hundred, ten, one person was both born into bondage and live to see the moon landing. The last surviving veteran of the Revolutionary War was John Gray who died in eighteen sixty, eight at the age of one, hundred four he's one of the only people who live to see both the revolution and the civil war oddly enough he was born on George Washington's estate Mount Vernon and his father died in the revolutionary. War. The, last surviving veteran of Napoleon's army was a Polish man Vincent Markowitz who died at one hundred and eight in nineteen three and the last veteran of the war of eighteen twelve was Hiram Cronk who passed away in one thousand, nine, five at the age of one, hundred and five. In Two thousand eleven at the age of one hundred and ten American Frank. Buck was the last surviving veteran of World War One in the world to pass away. Demographers estimate that the last veteran of World War Two will pass away sometime around the year twenty, forty four. It will probably be someone who fought at a very young age and lives to be at least one, hundred and ten. It's amazing how the lives of some people can span such incredible lengths of time and how we can have lives that overlap them. We think of the civil war is being a long time ago. Yet we're only two or three generations removed from people who lived through all of these events.

"Roulette. Welcome to let you know USA. Thanks for having me to be like the one and only standing official dot co editor of the United States of America. That's a big deal. Congratulations. Thank you. It's an honor fed I don't. Take lightly because I. I have the responsibility of. Not just. For reading about the food but. priding about the people and I think that's really the most. Critical part of the job but before we continue. People might be saying, wait what's going on and so you're very open about the fact that you stutter that is something that happens and so we might as well just say, Hey, it happens in your cool with. Saying Yeah and and moving on, right? Yes. I am thank you. Yes. It's part of my life and it's never stopped me from doing things like. Live TV or radio segments I. Love that. I. GotTa Say I really do I completely loved that. So. What you may not know is that I've been Taco fanatic since probably before you were even born, I'm Mexican I grew up with this stuff. You know I mean, my mom made dot goes by our leader. Mehta goes you're Puerto Rican you were growing up with this stuff. So what's the story as to why this Puerto Rican dude ends up falling in? Love with TACO's growing up in the states I knew about duck was generally speaking at A. Fast Food Product but. As a Mexican food item. was in. Brooklyn from. A. China and I don't know. Who I fell in love. With I. The woman. or The food. So before we get to talking about that goes which again we talk about forever. One of the things that stood out to us is from the beginning of your book. And this is where you refer to something you call the alita principal. And having just mastered Jose, you'll be proud of me finally having just mastered my I will lead us the you like I finally figured it out. I'm just like Oh my God I can't believe it. I unlocked it.

My Willett I made the best Mexican. Food she made best diesels. Hurling. was, the best or her? Malia was the best. and. For them. That's as far as Mexican food goes. Nothing else.

"Steam punt glasses and a bleach job on Edward. Norton. Not until he takes. The Shit I'm an FBI original incredible not not at all Dan. Not at all. Not at all, he's not even original. Incredible Hulk in the movies Dan as Eric Bana. Lou Ferigno pretty predates both of them. I knew that would anger you. Now, I know what? It's like when someone doesn't tell me enough about her. And there clearly setting this movie up for a sequel. So now, this is where we close the book on a leader Colon. Paddle. Leather. It was based on books books that I read some of in preparation for this. And whether you learn from those, let's talk about final judgments. Now, this where we make final judgments on whether this was a good movie bad movie movie we kinda liked. I, you know I like the books quite a bit. I think they're a little. There's certainly a little weirder. They're filled with a lot of cyborgs that clearly have made strong life choices. And I I kind of like the in the movie like a big part of the movies, the relationship between Hugo and Alita and they make him a little redeemable in this like he's a he's a jerk idiot. But he's not like a murderer and in in the comics he's basically a murderer and doesn't care about her at all. But her like wide I'd love for him is so like it feels so real because. Like when you're young, you're dumb and you make decisions and you you love people disagreement. But I all that aside. Yeah okay still. Does anything you WANNA talk about. Can I tell you who might guys are? So tell me about what we had at the laugh factory but we've I mean it. It's fast. There's a lot of information in there and not there's probably too much information except the stuff I don't WanNa talk about that but I mean the motor stuff's great and. The actors are fun and Christoph Waltz is fine. So I would say, I say this is a movie I liked like this. Yeah, this definitely moved guy like, yeah, the. People. I was I'll admit I was ready to go into this movie not liking it because I find the giant is so off putting. And I was like this movie's not big is what's going on. or Big Fish big fish would have big is too. or Big with Tom. Hanks. Get that much bigger when you've got big. Eyes are just kind of the same size throughout your life I guess but anyway so. But after I got over the fact that leader doesn't have a whole lot of personality at first I also really liked it in the end the I found that there are a lot of good action scenes in it. I liked some of the characters in the design work. Looks Real. Cool. Here's. and. It's any brightly colored. It's like not gray and like grim and dark looking you're not watching I don't know giant monsters fight in dark snowy saving further late show that I will say this holiday. So I, did like this movie but on GonNa, throw down the gauntlet I want you to find me a new set of ICONOGRAPHY for future cities. Let's put blade runner aside it's beautiful. It's doesn't really work for me as a movie, but it works very well a coffee table book. Let's. Let's set road warrior aside with all the letter in the spikes chains. That's great. Let's set it. Aside. I want you to think about a new vision of the future because as much as I like to lead there aside from right. Kind is a step in the right direction because at least it moves away we've had a solid thirty years of future equals Asian which is great but I've seen a lot of it. Is like future equals Africa, great I love it. Let's see more of that. But Hey, what about like a really crazy future? It's supposed to be three hundred years in the future. What in the people's phones, they don't look that cool and I know three hundred years people are GonNa have super cool phones. So Hollywood next time you make future movie thinking about how cool the phones should be. But that aside so Grenell Ceylan. For the I'm Elliot Kaelin Goodnight. Everybody Know Dan. You have to talk, right? Back could be the name of the PODCAST. Then you you have to talk. It was good. So on a scale from zero to ten earn how many Seven arms. Arms, it was like a little too convoluted a little too long but I liked it. But. Let's move on. We usually take some questions from the audience. To close out the show, we have to be a little more tight asked about like shutting it down this evening. Yeah. Keep microphone there. So we're going to need to see a mad dash scramble to get over there if your questions because we don't have a lot of time to waste fifteen minutes, we don't have a lot of time to eat up and you know what that means. We don't have time for a song tonight we don't have time for rhyme tonight we don't have time to eat limes tonight. I'm sorry there's just no time. If I had the time I'd sing you a song so loud and so long I got A. Strong. That song that we just don't have a Delta or I. Wish we had hours and hours of time I. Wish We. Hours to be together. Hey, people seem to like. Okay question number one please. My name is Carl last name withheld. Eight. One of my favorite old Flop House bits was in ATM when Elliott's made a joke about those old x-files bumpers that white the exile. By rule. Gould pretzels that guy was the quickest voice changer in the busiest and I think I mentioned arguments with my former roommate Bryan Chan who lives in Boston now about whether it was two differing you or the same guy? Yes clearly the same guy. Yes. My my favorite thing about that not only is it funny but it sort of like I thought I was the only guy in the world who remembered how weird those were. So in your life what are your favorite jokes that are extra funny because it seems like they were made for you and only you jokes that were made only us. Mike. At the time I felt like when I first started watching are you? Okay? thinking, stroll. I will say there's a there's an episode of Mystery Science Theater Thousand where Yep Great Show where? Something laps and then I think it's Bill Corbett as Kroger's Ha raceway park and those commercials that aired in my local area and I was like, how did they know about that? And every time I hear the laughter at the beginning of wipe out I always think it's the park jingle so I was telling my wife, we were this as. I was telling my wife when we were driving up, you're listening to sharp dressed man by up and every time I hear the scat lines where he's like black tie I always think it's like the Mason verger actor from the TV show Hannibal but. Of. On. I would say at the time when I saw like. Like venture brothers if felt like at the time, it felt like Oh while this made for me and then I'm like Oh wait just a boring white guy from a certain age..

"Mean it's it's a fantasy that many real life people have which is crazy because the heaven book they read is exceedingly clear that that is not the way to get into heaven and. Maybe they got a secret handbook that says money money money please. So alita wakes Hugo up who is sleeping off a hangover and he's looking pretty smoking I guess shirt off trail everything. So she is sitting in his window sill like a bird of prey and they come they hatch a scheme together. She's like here you can just sell my heart and he's like four a rare moment he's like wait a minute. I'M NOT GONNA. Sell your robot heart. Let's find a different way and she's like I'll just kill a bunch of people for you and you can take the money. It's like, no, no no. Why don't you earn the money for both of us by playing motor ball and we the audience are like Fook Yeah. I make it clear. I'm not asking for more exposition Elliott. But. This movie does bring up a lot of stuff about human robot relationships that is not. Does Not make. Dan Dan kept saying throughout the movie or watching it. How do they have sex? Dan, they've got the same thing when I was watching cars. And I'll tell you the same thing I said about cars they have attachments for that. Right. So. Sean check my notes you were you were you wanted to see and where she says warning to anyone who's listening with children you wanted to see where she says. She System Hugo, I can only do stuff. And that scene and also let me tell you about cleared up a lot for me. Go, let me go over the sex rules for me. Also here's what erm was all about how I feel about it. Anyway I guess we don't have time for me to play motor ball anymore. DVD with the deleted scenes alley about? So ALITA suits up to place a motorable. Meanwhile, vector is setting her up. He's got a team of people to murder her instead of worrying about the ball which seems to be everybody's case. Her father though disapproving her and gives you some cool roller skate feet. Meanwhile, while she's riding around the track receiving phone calls from everybody. Hugo goes. This, you go to find his. scrapper crew and they're rip the arms and legs office in poor. Guy. And a rival bounty. Hunter Warrior Za Pan who was made fun of and mocked for his little metal beard. She's at the Super Cool Sword Yup, he shows up he. Frames Hugo for murder and then kills Hugo's friend and chases him around. Alita finding out that Hugo's in trouble leaves. The Motor Ball track kills a bunch of motorbikes people. It's pretty cool. And she shows up Save Hugo for a second and then. Pan The evil hunter warriors like you gotTa Kill Hugo he's he's a criminal there's a bounty on his head, and of course, she can't do that because she loves him. So as a pain just stabs him which Dan's like what did you happen to lead on? He's like just take care of it. Before he kills them just kills a pan and I was like Dan. It's raining process like everybody has to wash their free leader is mad guy who's going to stab him it's Dan is so falling for the trap the movie has said, I was like Dan your reacting exactly the way. This movie is busted and I'm like you're bust Dan. You're having exactly what the movie wants you to do. You're a puppet or the move. Believe ahead only listened to me through the movie. None of the sad stuff would have happened is the guy in the movie theater who's yelling don't go in there. Not knowing that if the character takes his advice, the movie is over and the boys on sense of wonder Sir. So, interrupts. You I tell their sense of wonder about what happened in the war. And if you were wondering about what's happened to Hugo now that he's been stamped leader carries them off and then she runs into Kyran shows up for some reason and surgically removes he goes head and connects his head elitist heart which I think symbolism guys. But that allows that allows alita to reveal to the robots that she chopped his head off and they're like Oh bounty accumulated, and then the evil hunter warriors like. Wait what what, and he tries to stop her and the robots are like Oh. You can do whatever you want to this dude, and she's like thanks and takes his sword and shops half his face off. And she keeps his sword. Okay. Boom we're almost done. homestretch. Okay. So alita goes after vector. And then grew wish go shows up she just totally smokes it means a total WIMP. And Vectors Logo I. Hope I have another robot but also hold it also I know what you hate but it also turns out that Jennifer Connelly who wanted to get up to the sky. Has Been Harvested for Oregon's apparently that's the only way you can actually get and she that she was supposed to turn in Alita to get there but in fact. Her being a mother herself. Once upon a time, she couldn't do it. She has turned on her evil captors and now had her Oregon's pulled out of her. Brain energy. Vector keeps them in a case in his office in. My brain leader is fighting all these bad guys on the ground floor and vectors like what do I do and then Alita bursts through the ceiling and it was like, did she run up all the stairs? He's like you might think that with the name like Victor, I would understand angles. Math. So. Yeah. So she murders that robot and then like all of a sudden vector starts talking with Nova's Voice Nova the big bad remember and he starts talking some SAS and she says his back and then eventually she stabs him in the belly and then we get a great Mahershala Ali has to play a guy whose body is dying but is controlled by someone. It's pretty cool. His body is dying but he has the voice and personality of this confident villain taunting the hero and I was like this is really this is really good work that the what he's doing here not a joke. So so many turns out he's a great actor I dunno guys. Heard about this I don't know now I gotta go see Moonlight. So we? We find out that in his dying I guess not dying moments, but Nova has sent robots after. After, Hugo who in fact isn't Ted he's been intentional robot and Hugo has gone running off and we learned that Hugo is to me a pipe to the sky. Yeah. He's trying to climb his way Zala. There's these big space elevator cables up solemn and. There earlier, we have saw flashback where Alita over does that the there's elitist fighting her way up the cables dissolve them, and there's like a big spinning blade that comes down cutting things up and now he goes climbing up there. Hitting don't do dude news like I'll do whatever I want and. The giants stunning PGA came back. The giant spinning blade comes flying down and he's like I can jump over this super easy nuts faster and he gets chopped into little pieces. She jumps after him she catches him but his arm breaks and he falls and turns out there's nothing funnier than seeing a limbless head. Like. Waving, not in not endorsed, this opinion is not the rest. I'm making fun of any real thing that is making. I'm thinking making fun of a robot man who has been chopped up with falling. This is not gonNA age well in our post team. What have I done? So alita survives and she vows vengeance. She's GonNa find a way to solemn and the only way she can do it is by. Playing more mobile. So she shows up to the Motor Ball Stadium. She does some she strikes opposed. She points her sword at the floating city and on the floating city we see why Nova was so confident that's right because he's played by Edward Norton. With the white mullet..

"Get to later in the movie that I think is a genuinely great scene house part. So grow go shows up arms been kicked off. He ain't happy about it. He's like I'm going to kill the leader. Meanwhile all of a sudden. He starts acting weird and it appears like he is being controlled by someone else and we're introduced to yet another character named, Nova? That's it. Your eyes go blue and Nova can control you. Can Control Vector. Okay. I. Guess. The big bad guy and everybody can't stop talking about leader. ALITA and Hugo go on a date to the motor all stadium where a bunch of robots right around on a track and break each other and try and carry a ball somewhere. The ball is not that important. Now when when you say robots I, just WANNA clarify they are mostly cyborg human heads but entirely robot bodies and their arms have like big blades and buzzsaws which makes me wonder whether these guys doing when it's not motorable time like. What what are they doing with all those buzzsaws when he's not time to fight do you think they stick their head on a different body like? Normally when I'm not motor balling, I like my head to be on a gardener pot body. Yeah. Maybe I could see that. I like to be in a body that's a saw blade or just like a like a triangle of would that can flip Over. You're saying so they get more battle body. Five away those streets are tough. Elliott. By the way for anyone who did not watch leader before the show. Having watched the leader I flash on when Stewart is telling about the movie to this must be how anyone who does not care about science fiction feels when someone tries to explain the science fiction thing. Because, then vector is in charge of the motor ball league goes like Oh God just stop it. Whatever whatever you're selling the meal by. Reminds me of the time Tom, broke I wouldn't stop talking to me about doing. Elliot here's the gist of the story. It's a tale of Paulo trade. Young air to house train days. And how he manages to win the war for Iraq is now by dominating the planet but by losing himself in the culture of the freemen, it's spelled Freeman, and so for quite some time I thought it was. And Now? The interesting thing about the book all of it is interesting. Tom Is. We have another showed. All be happy to tell them about doing as well. Hits Stu. Take it away. So. Hugo, as a conversation with vector at the Motor Ballerina and vector gets him and his crew of buddies to don masks and attack a another motor ball guy and chop off his arm. So they can get his precious grind cutter. We'll be seeing more of that later just like he can. He like blades at the end of chains that he has like finger chain blades that fly out his fingers turned into chain. BLAZEK. Fly Out. I mean everybody knows what a grind cutter. Sorry, I'm sorry I. Forgot I forgot this Boston. Grind cutters kind of sandwich. So. Yeah. They'd like like jump this dude and chop is arms off it's really messed up. Okay, the next day. Hugo and his friends including. Alita go on a date into the badlands where they find an earthworm warship that has been crash-landed. Now you're probably wondering what's this earn? Stuart's talking about the whole time Dan was like, tell me more about earn. Worm squirm. This is a big argument we had during the thing because becomes clear that Alita is one of these earn. Like, the United Republic of Mars. Yeah. They're the ones. Yeah. Erm Dude not the ones that Earth was fighting led to the fall and I'm like all through the movie I'm like this is GonNa be addressed at some point right that she's one of these earn this is going to happen like it's going to run flicked. Because as I was saying Dan, it's like he was watching star. Wars and Luke says you fall with my father in the clone wars and Dan was like, why won't they stop and tell me more about the clone wars I'm enjoying this adventure? History lesson would make sense if luke had fought in the clone wars and they never mentioned it again, our main cared about this your heart of the inmate combatants and it's never address. So you're Dan. Okay. Let's say this. Let's say we're less than three hundred years from the Revolutionary War Boston and let's say. Let's say out of hibernation up British soldier a Tory or somewhat appeared would people would be like get the fuck Outta here dude, we fought you away. Hey, what's your hair skin cap? They'd be like, Hey, what's going on? You know what? Else? Three hundred year also. was from another planet and there were the last one how `bout that Elliott I'd WanNa meet them even more Dan. So this is what you're saying you are you are William Goldman. Watching the big Lebowski and going I can't wait to see this bowling championship. What I'm saying. I just want one line addressing like either like Oh, you know what I wasn't earned, but like your earthquake have converted me or. Being. I forget what the other thing is I don't care. The point is we were watching it and we argue about and it was the like the closest I've come to actually angry at I. Thought I thought Dan was going to quit the show. He was so mad that I did not agree with him and that there should have earned talk was. comically dismissed above me, Dan the thing is you're not the only person who's interested in the stuff because Alita is also interested. As she sneaks aboard the ship and finds a robot body which we learn as a berserk her body and ultimate killing machine body which her father is like I'm not putting your fucking hit on that thing that's. Look If if my son came to me and said, Hey, I found this cool robot monster body will you put my brain in? It'd be like, no. When you turn eighteen, what you WANNA do with your body, your business. But as long as you live under my roof, you are not putting your brain in a monster body. Again to be fair, you're primarily known for Reading for the daily show writing for mystery science theater the upcoming soon. You're not really known for putting brains in anybody's that's true. I would also say I'm not qualified to do this work. You know when you turn eighteen if you want me to do it, I will do my best because I.
"alita" Discussed on #WhoWouldWin
"That's. That tracks actually that makes sense that makes a lot of sense. I would just keep the powers of brave star because someday I hope to grow up to be like him Dan. Would you use similar animals or go to dip direction I've always been a fan of panthers so. That would be I would like the agility of a big cat. Awesome. My aunt had like over fed her cat, so it was like big was not agile, so I'm not thinking. That's the same. Okay, so I like was going. Let's go ahead and hit a point number two ray. What have you got? We're GONNA talk about the strength, speed and durability. Durability of Lita. Battle Angel because we kind of gave you the basics told you who this character is being that. She's a cyborg bounty hunter with kind of unlocked potential inside of her, but let's give you some specific examples of what we're talking about here. There's a point where she goes down into the basement a basement bar basically and she's trying to. To recruit people to come on her side, and they laugh at her. They say you're like this. Four foot eleven cyborg lady. We don't really have a good reason to respect you because we're a sexist terrible people. Okay Great, so what she does is she kicks a bounty hunter so hard. She kicks him so hard that he rolls. He rolls like one. One of those cartoons where the guy get stuck in the tire, and he just keeps rolling forever except he rolls through the bar, he rolls into an entire mob of his associates. They roll up the stairs of the bar. They go flying through the door of the bar if they were shot out of a cannon and they go flying into the night. One kick. Delivers that much power endeavour station so if she gets a kick on, brave star. He's going flying. That's something. I know absolutely for sure. Also she fights a lot of cyborgs. Brave stars great, but he is at the end of the day just a person. He doesn't have robotic enhancements, so he's kind of relying on these mystical abilities, science versus magic once again. James, who knew? But, she's been elite has been known to decapitate other cyborgs with a kick, and they have reinforced spines as those heads shouldn't flying. She decapitates him with an entire kick. She's known to smash through walls this by being like. Oh, I need to be over there. Womb her body just goes flying through brick and steel walls as if they're tissue paper as if they're nothing. Additionally, you've talked about the speed of brave star running two hundred miles per hour speed of a Puma. That's pretty good. In short dodging dashing mechanics. ALITA has been known to move at just under mach, one mach one being and I looked it up for this because I love to do math when. When it's ahead of time seven hundred and sixty seven miles per hour, so if we're comparing a guy who can run it two hundred miles per hour and somebody who can combat dash at. We'll say like seven hundred and fifty miles per hour. Obviously, one is supremely faster than the other, and we just have to take that into account. Additionally, she could jump way high in the air. There's plenty of examples in the Manga of her being able to jump. You know roughly three four or five stories and just jump on top roofs of buildings. Whatever the heck she wants to I. Haven't necessarily seen. Brave star able to batch that sort of a strength and speed.

I think it's just able to communicate too many people at once to me. Great latest what they really have that When the building a personal brand is they're able to school. The voice spoke one on one. But in a situation where it's one too many so that's one connecting east obscure yourself and then upscale your team that's what Personal you know the branding yourself as a leader is all about. That's a great strategy to have strategy number two is all about upstream yourself but also being able to US upskill attained. Because you don't want to build too much of a gap between self team so you not only going to be able to obscure be and be pestle development but you need to be a good damn good Developing your team as well number three is all about focusing on your expertise different expectations when you building attain leadership meetings that conducts. Think of yourself. You know when you're branding yourself as a leader. You'll that conduct a standing in front of the ban and you have a certain expertise to spotlight. Highlight what your expertise. But then also know what the expectation of the taints and by highlighting expertise of yourself in the team. You will ensure that you are branding. you're branding the team and again that makes you a leader in the number four. They're important is to always ask for feedback member. It was in the people business. Where the whistling product or service and it's all about connecting person to a product or service in different than when leading teams. So when you're working on the strategy to build your existing brand you have to have a brand is known to ask for feedback. Re Temperate. In order is to adopt strategies. That will help you amplify your personal brain. One explore your boys number two obscure yourself and your team number three highlight put a spotlight on your expertise and those of your teams and number four. Ask for feedback now in. What is a good personal leadership? Model well Ship is the ability to develop and utilize positive leadership traits. So you WanNa really highlight your leadership traits and then you want to guide the direction of your loss instead of letting others guard you now. That's what leadership is all about. It's the guy again coming back to the conductor. Great leaders others conductors in every conductor. You think if you research conductors of bans conduct on orchestra and you watch the videos youtube some you see that all of them have a very unique and distinctive different style. All mariah to get the band the follows to play to the bait of music and play the music that needs to happen so when not talk about leadership and leading teams by always love using the example them conductors and concert fans because everyone has different stops. I'm a more animated. Some listen but they will get the results and coming back to the beginning where we talked about uniqueness coming back to where we talked about you know focusing on different skills and they you have as an individual this is what makes you'll you'll build your personal leadership traits. What do I find the top five leadership skills and the people have someone? I've seen good leaders mid again. This is the leader of the constant pain. The leader of politics a lot of work around politics are CD's common skills. That I say that is honesty and integrity and sat dental fantasy. Always bill antic deliver bad news in pathetically but honestly and deliver good news with energy and passion and honesty. But it's always honesty integrity or fantasy number one number two inspire others. You have to have the ability as a leader to inspire everyone in the world wants. Inspirational seeks inspiration. We gotta have this tribe. It's very important if you want to build your brain as leader number three is be committed and passionate and if you're not committed and passionate things off until Quebec commitment and passion is the common denominator of resilience so if you were. The resilience is a common denominator of Gum. Commitment and passion. If you have commitment a passion you are resilient and as a leader unique to have that Resonance Nick. One is good communicator. You need to be an amazing Communica days. This is another gosh. If you can't communicate ECON late you'd go to get people to be able to march to the bait of your drum. This is something that needs to happen and number five is accountability. You need to have accountability and you need to demand can ability from your team so if you do these things these are what are fun of Obama. The skills set up the right lane is honesty and integrity. Which again is open to city number to inspire? Abbas number three commitment and resilience number four is a good communicator and number five is accountability. And I think if you look at anyone that you admire is a leader in any field whether it's sports whether it's in work whether it's easy whether Seattle whatever leave should whether it's a a Fatah great leaders people that have people followed them all have these five traits from and it's important because one of the three most important roles of leader to me. Well latest have to do different things. Depending on the year's activities we discussed because leadership is he personal bomb professional family life all asked to be ladies in different roles. Different responsibilities so that the three opinion a very common and to me. It's all about being able to envision it's all about the number correct follows and it's all about being able to execute so the three tasks of a later Matt whether it's leading at home at one co leading self is that you have to have a vision. You have to be able to get follow as to see that vision and you need to be able to and if you can do those three things combined with what I've covered in this flash costs than you will build your personal brain identity and remember that brain is what people say about you when you leave the room so if you really WanNa know what people think that your brain will think about you and I do this in in groups. It's a great exercise to. It's what people have to say that you when you leave the room. What is your your your emotional engagement your affect your impact on paper. What did I say about you when you the room? I mean a great way to look at it as eulogies. You can tell if you read people's eulogies you can tell what that personal brand of that fascinating back from the eulogy that the here but attacked people talk about them. How I relate the bathroom with I remember about what stands out about them. That actually creates the brand of that person so everybody that wants to create a brand and we all need to mush apple phone but in particular as Neal's asked in terms of leadership Minnesota important to go back makes about what we just spoke about and done an really align it to yourself. I remember that it's all about being unique. It's all about the different till about keeping it real to yourself keeping an authentic. These are the things that happen because you know we often talk about a latest night will born well to me it. Spotter you Latest can be made at any time. If there's a will so there's a will there's a way but it's all about surrounding trump with throughout paper and of course some people are naturally boom out of talents that others don't have however it's not one or the other you don't need to be born. Alita to become a leader. I think that people need to understand that leadership is all about having the ability to get people to follow you around and personal ladyship been able to really brain yourself as a leader comes down to understanding your self understanding your audience and attributing all the things that we've spoken about in this flash cast until next time gumby the Bishops Bay. You've been listening to fill up the Bella in this cast by
Darina Allens food philosophy
"We start today spoke with Irish chef author and broadcaster Darin Allen who has for over three decades being tempting curious food folk would be shifts from around the world to East Cork. That's where she runs the world famous. Bali mellow cookery school. After twenty or so cookbooks and countless Seles. TV shows Allen has become the face and the voice of a coronary revolution in Ireland. And now she has released yet another cookbook call to one. report feeds or Marcus. Joyce finished meant during Allen to talk about the book but before that they discussed dreariness food philosophy and into why rice cooking and farming practices. Really do matter. Not Enough has changed in that direction because really the message not even subliminal message nowadays is is that the skills that are really important are the academic skills and that the practical skills are of much less importance and this is a big mistake. My goodness sweep Latin now. Two generations at least out of our houses and our schools without equipping them with the basic life skills to feed themselves properly or feeding right into the hands of the multinational food companies. We've handed over complete control over the most important thing in our lives really are food to the supermarkets and it's not their responsibility. Our health is not their responsibility so basically I feel really failing in our duty of care to our children and the next generation by not equipping helping them with the basic practical skills to make a little meal for themselves own. I could really do was actually scrambled eggs or whatever you know With a basic skill. I've had a really interesting life. I now have what I absolutely love. It's actually a privilege to be able to pass on cooking. King skills to the next generation could be teaching algebra geometry or something and of course it's hugely important but you can't flip and Matt's Book and the Look on somebody's face when you teach them how to make a loaf of bread or a super it actually touches their lives at something they're going to use every day so I feel fortunate that I've found something that I totally love doing and feel like jumping out of bed still every day at seventy one years of age. Don't jump on quite desert fossil. Awesome US two years ago but still if we flash forward I mean people wouldn't have to look far to see the success. All of the amazing graduates have come through the school. All of the things that you've you've taught them not to mention as you said your TV shows your books sold in the hundreds of thousands of copies. But I had the good fortune two years ago. I believe to come to Bali demanded to a story for Monocle magazine. And you told me something curious. I'd like to ask you about the first recipe. Teach students is a recipe for soil. And in your clothes. It's actually the recipe. I give them as how to make compost scams where you're very very close. So basically the school operates a whole year round but we do three-month dream on certificate courses on the first day. The first one the first thing I do is I introduce them to the gardeners in the far manager. And maybe I'll have a bunch of carrots or something and I say to them. Look at these lovely carrots. It took I lean three months to grow these carrots three months and don't you dare boilers them. And you get them into the kitchen and then we go out into the fruit garden and Eileen will have a wheelbarrow full of soil there. Actually its humus in fact and they stand around me and a big semicircle in a wondering doing what's coming down the line the feeling a little awkward and I just run my hands to the soil and I say to them remember. This is where it all starts in the good earth in the soil and and looking at me and thinking. Oh my God do myself say. They've visited brochure. thinking some aged hippie on a mission or something but I have to shock them out of thinking that food is just something that comes wrapped in plastic offer supermarket shelf. I need them to think about how it's produced where it comes. I think about the feed for the animals. The breed the the variety such a such a toll. The better if I can find futile worms in this wheelbarrow full of soil. But then it's even more interesting for me. I think because wash is in that wheelbarrow has come from the compost heap and it's now at the final stages of compost which is called Humus when life comes back into it and actually has been made from the scraps from the morning's cooking that have gone onto the compost. It's broken down and in life has come back into it and that is what we feed the soil with. I mean if I come back another time I want to be a soil scientist. 'cause the so much going on because our health everything comes in the soil bill but then one of the many wonderful quote some lady eve how far and say to them remember the health of the soil. The health of the plant health at the animal and the health of the human are all one and indivisible so we're totally dependent on that four or five inches of soil around the world for our very existence. Farmers are really worried about the diminishing fragility of the soil. Because we've racked the soil by very intensive monoculture over the years and we can't go on with businesses usual. We simply have to go back and I mean as a farmer I feel a strong responsibility that whatever I grow you and we have we sell a little of our excess produce Mardell farm shop on the farm farmers markets and. I just feel strong responsibility that I can look somebody straight in the. I know that that food is going to nourish them rather than make them ill. which is what's happening with lots of food nowadays and during the you've been proved right over time I mean these are opinions slowly working their way into the mass media their opinions that people are slowly beginning to agree with? You have held this idea for a long time. How hard is it meant to convince people to even get to this point into the debate where people countenanced the health of the soil? There's a lot of chat about the fertility of the soil. Now because I think people really beginning and not just beginning but realized the connection connection between fertile soil and good health also. There's been enormous amount of work done on the link between the health of our gut bio and both are mental and physical health. And that's when you think of it. It's like so obvious at the school where very lucky we have a little dairy herds so we also have role milk for people if they want to drinker but we notice this is sort of anecdotal. Because I've watched this over thirty years the difference in people's energy level and they're scared and so on when they're with us for three months but now this is all scientifically proven and also the other interesting thing that's happening actually is for the last five six seven courses this is. We've had at least one doctor. Sometimes to an on this course of the moment we have three doctors on the twelve week certificate cooking course these doctors who come they all come for the same reason they tell me that basically they feel because medical training. There's no training in nutrition even still although a lot of the young doctors. There's a now demanding that they're given the proper information so they can answer their patients queries properly and so many of the patients presenting hunting with conditions. That can be at least hot. An often cured by a change of Diet for one of the problems is. Where'd you get this nutrient dense food? I mean a lot. The people don't have time to buy directly from farmers but there are other ways of excel tarnish of routes to market retell routes to market developing over here. You have formed drop and we we have neighbor food and onto you can buy on nine. And then the farmers get eighty percent of the price which is fantastic has so many farmers not being paid enough any longer to produce nourishing wholesome food which is a real problem. And that's as opposed to us was between twenty five and thirty percent of the retail price. If it's going through a supermarket so that's important portent and also I'm encouraging people to try to grow something themselves again and as you mentioned you're concerned about the quality of food that people have access has to and maybe also sometimes I guess the quality of food that people were reached for when they could reach for something else which are believed to be some of the inspiration behind rather fetching new book work in front of me number. Nineteen number nine teams needs another during having good but I I think this one says one feeds all one hundred it new recipes. Tell us about the inspiration for after you've done. Eighteen books hackles up. The ALITA writes her. Another one. Why it took me to write this book? Actually because it's been bubbling away in my subconscious for years. Because we've been I suppose is about five or six years. Now we've been doing a course called one wonders it's a bit of a cheesy name for recourse but it's almost full and of course one can see year after year that everybody's becoming more and more frenetically busy and sort of for an fact have dedicated this book to all the heroic young couples who are trying to keep all the balls in the air and that's for many people. The reality now is so dashing home from work in the UK. Okay here in Ireland to terrible traffic off the time dashing into the supermarkets picking up the kids in the crash trying to get a few ingredients and then coming home exhausted and and really wanting to be able to cook a big part of something or make something that you know will nourish the family and we'll be delicious and wholesome and good and comforting after that long day and it's just time it's almost impossible to keep all the balls in the air and so. I hope that this book will provide a little bit of the solution for so many of the busy people to the title says Israeli. Because it's one part feeds also one pass one low sinton baking tray or one trae Bake I. I hate that word trade bait but there's so many good things loved it desserts. You can do it as well so this book was written for that reason and it's getting a fantastic response. Actually I think it's really touching a nerve with a lot of people in so many people say that's exactly what I wanted. It's exactly what I've been waiting for so I. I'm quite proud of it in many ways because I kept putting the recipes and saying I think left without an they'd love that they'd love letter left out and actually does apart from of course fishing means on there's also lots of vegetarian -tarian dishes and lots of accidentally Vegan things to and during last question for you but number nineteen thirty six years of running the cookery school. What was the one talk tip that you've learned over that time? It can be a technique for boiling an egg could be owning a mandolin. Was the one bit of advice I can ask you. That you think is made life a little bit easier in otherwise hectic schedule. Oh my goodness I think. Sit Down after your days work. Sit Down and enjoy. Enjoy something at the kitchen table. Whether it's just a simple boiled egg little scrambled eggs or nomination it loss of wine but sit down and enjoy us and let the cares on the worries of the days. Slip away as you enjoy a little special moment at the kitchen table during their and her new book one pot feeds all all is out now
Britain's Conservative Party Conference Gets Underway in Manchester
"The Conservative Party conference is getting into full swing in Manchester in more normal times. Britain's parliament would be in recess so the party could lay out its plans the these are not normal times lawmakers are back at work while much of the ruling party has elsewhere the big policy pronouncements are spilling out concerning earning new hospitals and spending on roads but the theme of the conference is get brexit done just what Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been saying so doggedly and with new scandals that emerged over the weekend that might become unbelievably. Even harder was a very strange moods at the toy party conference in Manchester. Our political correspondent Dunkin Robinson is in Manchester soaking up the atmosphere on the one hand you go boys. Johnson define minister marching around being applauded by activists S. wherever he goes and on the other hand you've got Boris Johnson the prime minister on the front page of newspapers being accused of a whole host of misdemeanors and what are they well. There's two quite serious. Allegations being made against Mr Johnson I is with regards to a high profile journalist Charlotte Edwards who alleged that Miss Johnson groped her after dinner while he was editing a magazine called spectator in nineteen ninety nine so she alleges that Mr Johnson squeezed her thigh. I under the table and she also said that. The woman who sat on the other side of Mister Johnson also had the same experience. This Johnson denies all this but we're in a different situation now where were in one thousand nine hundred nine. This is a sort of post me to scandal and it's a serious problem for the Conservative Party because the number of cabinet ministers have already had to resign for similar allegations literally for impropriety with female journalists but you said scandals in the plural what else the other scandal is to do with a woman Jennifer Curry who is a businesswoman and model who if if you've opened a newspaper this weekend allegedly had an affair with Mr Johnson now. This isn't a professional problem for Mr Johnson in Illinois of itself but the problem mm-hmm is that hub business received a number of grants and went on trades trade missions with Miss Johnson while he was mayor of London again. Mr Johnson denies he did anything wrong with that. Those no interest declare the journalists is still digging amounts on this topic and it could run in one will these these are not the talking points that Mr Johnson would would would like to be bouncing around the Tory conference. What would you like to be talking about an absolutely no this was supposed to be Johnson's sort of Kuda theater. This was his moment where he burst osteen is as prime minister laid out his vision for Britain's future and his vision for Britain's future is is basically two sets. The first step is they're going to get brexit done. That's the phase oh he's they using and the second step it involves just spraying a public services with lots of cash ahead of any election and as for Brexit. How's that going for Mr Johnson. I mean there have been some embarrassing stories about how it's gone so far yes so far that the cunning plans hatched by. Downing Street haven't quite gone to plan so they had a scheme which involves suspending Alma for five weeks which was much longer than it has been suspended suspended for any point since the second will and that fell apart when the Supreme Court struck that down as the legal and the problem with that is that Bush Jonson technically used the powers of the Queen so in effect the Prime Minister the had accidentally forced the Queen's Bake the law which is the one thing you're not supposed to do when your prime minister you're supposed to the queen out of politics and boys. Johnson had dragged actor into politics in the most embarrassing way possible so that means that reportedly this weekend he did actually give an apology to the queen which is an obvious question balancing but in an embarrassing another level because you also supposed to reveal any conversations halfway queen when you're prime minister so it's a double whammy and in the course of all that mess mister. Mr Johnson managed to sack quite a few members of his party now. There's this party conference in Manchester while who plenty of parliament is at work back in London where those sacked. MP's now all of the place some have come to Manchester some her stay away and some have joined the parties and I think it's fair to say that those who who've come are hopeful that there will be some form of future for them within the Conservative Party and the others who joined to the parties while I I think they've given up on it and so what about the ones who have gone to Westminster. What what do you expect to happen in Parliament this week in Westminster. There's going to be a strange atmosphere because this problem was supposed is to be in recess which is sort of a step up from from being suspended. There were the bits and bobs going on but they're not going to be doing votes except after all the Shenanigans involving suspending parliament frankly the rest of don't trust the current government so they refuse to give them a recess which means that parliaments is still technically sitting which means gene parliament can still be passing laws and if you'll all your MP's in Manchester while in peace one of the politics a leaves you quite vulnerable legislatives shenanigans so this seems an increasingly extraordinary set of circumstances for for Mr Johnson personally politically. I mean he's beset at every turn. Do you think that he ends and and his supporters will be able to get past. All this mess. Eight does feel like everything is going wrong. But if you speak to people Mister Johnson's camp they're extremely bullish and they have some reason to be. They all well ahead of Labour in the polls and most polls they have about a ten point lead which if is born into coming election we'll turn into a big conservative majority and that way happiness lies for them but the main advantage is the fact that Boris Johnson is preferred as the Prime Minister A to Jeremy Corbyn the Labor Party leader of the opposition Jeremy Corbyn is remarkably unpopular with the general public so Mister Johnson's extremely lucky in his opponent but if your main advantage is the fact that people like Johnson's Alita having Johnson surrounded by these scandals. This is certainly going to be a big big problem but the main benefit that Johnson has is that here's this strange almost donald trump ish ability too wide scandal that would kill off other politicians. I mean Mister Johnson might survive. These scandals is his party might end up with a majority but what about longer term the party itself. It couldn't possibly be more fragmented. Get the toys split on Europe as they have been full the past quarter of a century there is this hope among conservatives that once Brexit is over with that they can just focus on other things but Bert Brexit is not one of those stories that will disappear this is GonNa hang over British politics for the next ahead also so if the toys are hopeful that and they can forget brexit done that is in an endpoint posts they might be sorely mistaken
The new shows to watch and the ones to skip
"As usual we wrap things up with the critics corner this week's new arrivals include undone on Amazon unbelievable on Net flicks and American Horror Story Nineteen eighty-four on FX Dan. What's cooking well? I if I had not seen American Horror Story Nineteen eighty-four as if I have said many times I'm looking forward to watching the first few episodes and quitting as usual but I can't tell you if it's better or worse than usual fortunately though there are actually a lot of things things to watch this week and really the main new releases are all pretty good to very good. Unbelievable is Netflix exes this I would say it is complementary to mind hunter. It is to some degree. It's the story of two detectives played by Merit Weaver in Toni Collette investigating a serial rape case. There's also a story line involving Caitlyn deavere as one of the victims potentially of the same serial rapist. Maybe maybe not it is intense and it sounds like it is unpleasant to watch or could could be unpleasant to watch. It is less wallowing than it could be. I would say that the creators Suzanne grants who wrote Erin Brockovich among other things is the primary creator along with a let Waldman and Michael Chaban and it has a really good grasp of tone. It never goes to dark. It has is very good insight into the criminal investigative process what works what doesn't sometimes it's even funny and that has a lot to do with the fact that Moore Weaver in Tony any clutter just wonderful together. It's based on a Pulitzer Prize winning propublica article and I could honestly watch multiple seasons of this or up Toni Collette Leadin Merit Weaver being awesome Caitlyn deavere also awesome. I thought the eighth episode of the eighth. Maybe is a drop in quality. Maybe a little bit more contrived and conventional conventional than the first seven but it's an impressive piece of economical and powerful storytelling then undone which sounds like it should be right. They're also alphabetically which is very important comes from a Raphael Bob Wax Bergen keep purdy who have worked together on Bo Jack Horseman on Netflix. This one is on an Amazon and it is a twisty turny wrote a scoped story about a young woman who becomes unstuck in time and reality after a car the accident and her father voiced by Bob Odenkirk actually played by Bob Odenkirk because that's how wrote a scope works tells her that she has the power to help. nope basically solve the mystery of his death or murder. Main character is played by Rosa Salazar who people will know maybe from alita battle angel or for man seeking woman. She's she's very good. It is not as funny or Quirky as Beau Jack Horsemen but is is visually magnificent the the the rotor scoping technology and the work done by director his Co.. Housing is is stunning to look at. I didn't care about the murder mystery really at all but I love watching this this is this is such a beautiful show to watch and sometimes it's funny. Sometimes it has some big thoughts in its mind. It's Jerry Interesting Are you gonNa Watch either of those two this weekend direction. I actually just started binging elites. I'm probably going to finish that and then I'm hopefully to watch some baseball this weekend. I'm hopefully going to sit out by the pool. That all sounds good if you need a little bit more TV I can also to some degree. Recommend showtimes murderer on the by you. Showtime is getting into the same true. Crime miniseries extended storytelling market that netflix dominated that obviously Amazon has done some. I'm working. A bunch of folks have done it. It's about the investigation into the deaths of young women in a single Louisiana small town. It is full of rather rather mind boggling details miscarriages of justice. It is absolutely difficult to watch. It's a Lotta graphic. Talk about you know people selling their bodies is selling their souls and smoking crack with their parents but it is you're trying to do right there. It doesn't look like it's that exciting small town so apparently you gotta do what you gotTa do it is harrowing but sometimes gripping and mind boggling to watch a lot of pretty good TV to watch this weekend. I would say so there. You
What Are The Traits Of Inspirational Leaders?
"Today i tackle as subject of traits of quality leads salina's that are amazing to me that what traits do these guys have in gaza and gaza goes will be <hes> as as many inspirational leader in the world some young some alda. Let me tackle some of the <hes> trikes delayed that are say amongst the leaders and dump. Let's kick off with number one integrity and these no nos vicinity quota but integrity an integrity is important because they site and then they do an short to maintain criti is the difference between what they do so people that have integrity will always do with us are they gonna do now in might not be something we locked in might be something we do like. It doesn't really matter. That's not what i'm tackling here what i'm tackling his that one of the great traits of of one of the great leader's is integrity. They will always do what they say they're going to do. Another one is resilience. There is the meta avenue tons get down. They get back up and they go go go and this is something that can be saying in great leaders. <hes> you know i eh with at a sports whether the politicians when they'd business whether there has wife househusband it doesn't really matter <hes> leadership taxonomy wolf forms and resilience is key pop to you know being a great leader now nixing tomase accountability accountability is bright ladens have the <unk> of accountability if the negative like they put the hands they they they don't the concept of winning and losing his team. You know this is something that is important. It's not when something goes wrong. It's somebody else's fault <hes> and when everything is right it's each it's the glory lady with the leader. That's not something that some great leaders do that always accept accountability an inspiring now bright and inspiring to me go hand in hand because bright people tackle adversity bryce. These people make that step and we know that if you don't make the stick things doesn't happen but at the same time they're inspirational in the way they do that so they're not bright bald an arrogant that brave an inspiring that willing to put themselves forward but they understand that they're inspiring people people like martin luther king nelson mandela. These people were bryant but there were some spotter. They went out there to buck the system that were there. They were bright on our inspiring in such a big kohl's addicting now. This is something that so important is adaptability. Leadership doesn't often talked about the adaptability isn't talked about often in the concept of leadership but great leaders not to attacked than to adapt when things are good than i had to adapt the things that they have this constant energy of the depth ability they make sure that they can adapt people to situations situations to people people etc etc compassion. Something that often doesn't get talked about in leadership is compassion. You know another way to put it. His empathy now <music> out empathy compassionate doesn't mean that you have to you know be sitting next to somebody crime it really simply to me is is the concept compassion and as you feel that you understand that you listen the compassionate they will apply the right outcome for the situation a great way to look at this. Is you know to to me. I know that i'm compassionate. What i'm saying is doing the best that they can with the resources at the half at the time attack me that today's a great way to to show compassionate is that you're willing to look the situation or whatever it may be and say is the best at the time with the resources of behalf and to make compassion is is obviously important trait of equality later the ability to look in the mirror and i talk about this a lot. Is that a lot of latest look in the mirror. They don't understand that they need to be leading by example that they need to make sure that it's different rules arabas in different roles for them. They need to make sure ooh what they what they're actually doing. You know they can look in the mirror and say hi. I n leaving. Do i believe i should be leaving acting acting the way. I believe i should be acting. This is something that's agassi. So important i mean we all look at people like bill and melinda gates amazing leaders in what they looking in the mirror yeah they wealthy very roughly however looking in the mirror and saying wait human and we want to show humanity by doing doing great things around the world and that's something that's obviously very very important to them. Just a dan in new zealand prime minister is different trick whether you like his policies or <unk> policies. That's not the point. The point is as a leader. She has this ability of looking in the mirror and saying i'm human and i will therefore for act with compassion with love and dumb you know with with anticipate so these are people that really really good another. Try is quality holiday. Leaders have the ability to ceram selves with people that challenge them now. A lot of people don't like that.

Explainer 158: Ukraines presidential elections: out with the old in with the new?
"In two thousand fourteen in a fragile done. Ukraine Petrie Persian came to power in a landslide victory is not only of the president. Future. Monday chief opinion, not forces tried to do my best to defend Ukraine and people to bring security and to bring this five alita once tipped as a pro e u reformist came in. He would end the conflict in east, Ukraine. A matter of weeks is interrupted sizable spot of bother in the first round of the presidential elections. This Sunday Porsche isn't even guaranteed a place in the final run-off for the first time in Ukraine's history. The top two candidates are not clear cut to head of time poll. So far have been volatile results have consistently shown that house of more than thirty candidates? It is neither portion ker know, the fiber and former PM Hewlett Michenko who is stealing the top spot in that place polling with around twenty percent of the votes is actor and comedian Alinsky. Linski zero political experience and know organized party behind him. In fact, the closest come to preparation for the job is playing the role of fictitious president of the people in a popular Ukrainian sitcom yet despite this Porsche anchor and Timoshenko still trail significantly behind. So what's gone wrong? Why has the tide turned against Persian koso- further? And is there any chance it will be reversed in time? After the Ukrainian revolution of two thousand fourteen politically economically and socially, the people showed. It was time for Ukraine to be on par with the rest of Europe. And the hope was pinned on partial. While partial has an outright failed Gwendolyn, SaaS director of the center for east European and international studies in Berlin explains. The trouble of not living up to great expectations. The incumbent Puerto Shangqiu is really tied to the hopes that were societas with the euro my Donald two thousand thirteen and fourteen and he did initiate an important reform process. And also a pro western coasts for the whole of Ukraine, but he also symbolizes all the disappointments. So they hopes were extremely high and the reform process is extremely complex and slow. It has to be slow to certain extent and the electorate now associates also the failures or the slowness of this reform process with him. Aside from sluggish reforms another important sticking point is the ongoing water Ukraine's, east grunted, Putin's idea of Nevada and new pro Russian region in the east and south Ukraine hasn't materialized, but the have been some thirteen thousand deaths since the conflict began and the ceasefire remains fragile further. Still the wall has also fan the flames of militant Ukrainian nationalism formed as a breakaway from volunteer. Military group started in the early days of the war the far right national call have wreaked havoc on partially because recent campaign trail violently protesting presidential rallies with corruption. Acusations this added to the poor living conditions across the country. Makes it clear why Porsche is on shaky ground in Bateson. The freelance journalist in Kiev tells us more about the burdens portion Bess in Ukraine, it's especially difficult not only because the country with active finding a war going on. But also because it's twenty eight year history. They've only reelected and then come to the president once life is very hard for the average Ukrainian salaries are quite low the average monthly wages less than three hundred dollars a month utilities have been going up. So there's a lot of frustration in the country. And of course, gets directed at the president because there's still a belief that the president defines the entire system and that the right person could change that one of partial key reforms which brought him to pal in two thousand fourteen was his commitment to ending the corruption that had plagued the country ever since it became independent from Russia almost thirty years ago, though, he's made substantial anti corruption reforms in important sectors such as gas tax and banking a recent scandal within the defense ministry has tainted his presidency and only reinforced his image as a politician committed to enriching his pals. But it's partially co all that bad his not the only candor under five claims of this ilk, Timoshenko one-stop, the gas Princess has been in and out of water fillings to shady oligarchs politicians for years, and there are even suspicion surrounding newcomers landscape, the TV channel which runs his show is owned by a controversial billionaire and few believed that it's a business connection of no political significance. Gwendolyn SaaS believes the other patches of grass aren't necessarily greener. But if portion could get sin will Ukraine be better off, it is very hard to say one knows what one gets so it will be a continued slow reform process. Whereas with the other two candidates one we really don't know what policies they would focus on one end. Ski has absolutely no an actual program to speak off. So we would see something new with him. That's what he's running on on. Julia Timoshenko claims she roping something new that is highly doubtful. She is not a new petition on the Ukrainian context. So in the west many seaport o'shane cluelessly the easy option to prepare for. But it will also not mean a quick reform process in Ukraine and inexperienced leader like Solent scheme could make Ukraine susceptible to foreign influence, notably that of the Russians who to his credit portion has largely kept it Bain. While Timoshenko's presidential hopes failed to spell out, even one succinct agenda and of time gone by Porsche is not popular. But Ukraine must decide if the unknown will really be any better.

There are a lot of similarities like intermittent income, and no real safety net is a problem that affects millions of workers like nannies caregivers and housecleaners the national domestic workers Lance is trying to change this. There's something it calls its innovation arm and DWA labs. It's bringing financial tech to domestic workers. It's new platform called Leah directs digital payments towards benefits for housecleaners. Marketplace's Lila Goldstein talked with one user about the platform, alleviate Mahia is a house cleaner in Brooklyn. Her son David is in the third grade and has a lot of school trips in always always he won. I can go with him. It used to be saying, yes, meant losing income. But last year, she went with her son's class to the prospect park zoo and still got paid thanks to a platform called Leah. It helps gig workers like her earned benefits. Like paid time off she pulls up the website on her phone Huma Boya plataforma. The leeann is the Mittel me contra Sania, she logs in chooses the worker option and sees a total dollar amount. It's money clients have contributed specifically for benefits clients select the client option find their house cleaners account and choose whether to give the platform recommends five dollars per cleaning this money can only be used for benefits offered by Leah then go toward or contracts.

Elliott automates something that can be complicated for workers to do on their own longtime workers advocate Pollock Shah helped develop the Elliott platform. What technology is really doing is in neighboring all. All of these multiple parties coordinating them taking all this transactions. Putting it all in one place, and allowing for the worker to be able to draw down those benefits, and it gives clients a more formal way to contribute to benefits Mahia is already comfortable communicating virtually she rarely sees her clients. She just text them notamment them excluding this. They huddle Yemi Leoneto soda. She gets a key. And they leave her money on the table at first Mahia was a bit embarrassed to leave fliers inviting her clients to use a Leah.

You don't think benefits you one the toll moon, though, that I don't know if you've seen us, they a whole ISM benefits us. She thought why not me, but you'll notice way at the net. The Goldstein brought us that story alita currently doesn't offer some really important benefits. No health insurance, no retirement plan. But as the gig economy grows. More workers will be looking for alternative ways to get the benefits. They need. And now for some related links. You may remember that Uber recently settled with drivers in California and Massachusetts for twenty million dollars. The lawsuit raises the question of whether drivers are fully employed as or just contractors the agreement won't end that debate. But it does that an average of about twenty two hundred dollars per driver. In those states NBC reports that the settlement amount is pretty favorable for Uber, which is trying to sign up. Its image ahead of an IPO. Uber has kept the number of lawsuits from drivers down by making it the default that legal disputes, go through arbitration, beware.

More than twelve thousand have opted to go through arbitration now Hoover foots, the fifteen hundred dollars filing fee, for such cases and Gizmodo calculates that comes to about nineteen million dollars in fees for Uber.

Top 40 Activism with Justin Tranter
"With Justin trans or one of the most prolific contemporary songwriters. Justin's written many of the songs we've broken down on the show. Justin Bieber sorry on as make me feel Selena Gomez, bad liar. And Julia Michaels issues with who he collaborates frequently Justin is more than just a songwriter, though. He's also a prominent LGBT and gun safety activists. He served on the board of glad and he uses his songwriting platform to advocate, his politics and to boost marginalized voices. He's prolific thoughtful and instructive on how someone can embed their activism into their work so named I think you're going to really enjoy this one. Here's our conversation with Justin Justin thank for joining us. Thank you for having. So in your Twitter bio, you are song writer activist. And today, I want to talk about both of those sides of your wonderful music. And I think what we're going to see is that they. They are inseparable. Yes. But let's let's jump in and talk about your music. I because we always want to do on the show. You are coming today with a song that you've covert in with do aletha hauled swan song, it's the end credit of alita battle angel and it serves as both a pop song and film score. Chris O works. Hopefully, we'll see. So let's just dive right in take a listen to that. Sounds. On the. Breaking walls the walls. The same as Diana. We've got. Well, thank you. So I just want to start and ask what does this once on swansong is I think the end of someone's career? So their final moments swan dive swansong, it's like your your final moment. For me. Watching the leader definitely song. One hundred percent written for the movie. So I saw the movie I it was a huge fan of the enemy and to me. It was just this woman. Cyborg, whatever we want to call this brilliant character of alita kind of comes into her power and realizes through her history and through being true to herself that she has the power to change the world. And so this is not her song. Yeah. This is not her swan dive, it's a new life. So both you and Duleep have gone on social media and talked a little bit more about some of the meaning behind the song. And that this is not a swan song is about the fight for Justice. And that it's not just the beginning of five for. This is an ongoing battle. Exactly, it's was wondering in the songwriting process. If there were bits of sort of intentional thoughts about how are we going to embed topics of Justice in this? It was all very intentional. So when I saw the movie I was just so excited that was like, wait. I get to like write a song in this. Character is an activist. Like, right. We don't think of it that way. But like superheroes are all activists there like fighting evil. They're fading wrong in alita. It's very much like the rich live in the Sky City and the whole rest of the world because the world's been destroyed. So the only people left are all dirt poor and live below the Sky City to get that sort of activism in the song was what what's what's the point of my lips if they don't make noise. So like an idea of like, we all have a voice, what's the point? Why have a voice if we aren't using it to speak out against injustice? Alita has this insane power. She knows this martial art form that only has died. No one knows. But she she knows it and she's. This crazy cyborg that has her body has technology that other bodies don't sidewalk bodies don't wrote. So she is has this extreme privilege, and as I always say what's the point of privilege if you don't pay it forward. So to me like elitist the ultimate privileged activists using her privileged for good. And then also we say in the pre chorus is very much inspired by act up which was the from the eighties still exists today, but started in the eighties HIV and aids activist group that ended up saving millions and millions of lives with their with their fight. And their motto was silence equals death. And so that idea of staying quiet the same as dying. So we're tried to find subtle ways to really infuse activists history in into the song. That's a beautiful woman. I want to take a second and just play the pre chorus so people can here's there. Because the. Same as Diana. Obviously
"alita" Discussed on The Polygon Show
"So when we were watching that scene, and then I think it was pretty close to after that because this was very much the end like those Maharidge lollies biggest seeing got way, right? Like so watching that like what two days after the Oscars? I got why. And then Edward Norton as I meant to multiple people texted me on Oscar night being like insane that next year Maher change going to win an Oscar for? Time. But like on a Herschel always death scene in his movie is one of the funniest things I've seen in higher line. Yes. So the premise of Edward Norton character is that he can just sort of beam into anyone else's body and like take him over and talk to other people through them. So he does that some Herschel and alita stabs Mahershala. And then we're Herschel is body starts dying and like falling but his face remains, normal speaking, it's the strangest disconnect I've ever seen in my life. There was something has to Oskar going to be three. Something he said that. I remember. It was really funny. Oh that looks fatal. While he just has it normal phase. He he's staggering down. Yeah. Just Just let let me go. me good accords. Yes. Superstar though, because he was I felt like Harley in the movie more towards the end. But then also the Edward Norton reveal obviously like, yeah. Kind of knew by then that it was ever nor. But like that's when he takes it so Heine sunglasses, and that has a completely different face, these huge names in these really weird been marts. I mean, I guess fittings Cameron Robert Rodriguez have that cash to sell them on in or. Yeah, they spent a lot of money on this movie. Yeah. Let's be on. If I were an actor and somebody promised me a lot of money. And I'm being in five seconds of. Oh, yeah. True. Yes. Jennifer Connelly series. She didn't wanna be there. Like the entire time. She was just like barely acting. Yeah. I think she's the one where I was the most like. Yeah. Yeah. Like, why is she here? Why is she here? Yeah. We don't have the answer to that question. Joe sending police. While you were there. I did think Christoph waltz was good. Yeah. It's like genuinely good at like the other two time Oscar winner. I mean, I think relative to good good is the scale. We're only we're good at using good only in the elitist gale. On the rest of the universe. Alita like genuinely being good is at the action is so well shot like the last x insert whatever large number you want marvel movies that I've seen? I haven't been able to distinguish a single frigging thing in any of the action scenes is just see GR Gorbach yet like this one the partially because the moldable, of course, is like very pristine, and there's nothing really else going on it. You can tell exactly what's going on in every single scene. The motion is terrific proper GECAS. Did a good job. I think that is fair..
"alita" Discussed on Feminist Frequency Radio
"I had a kind of a different take on alita because she seems to me that very kind of science fictional notion of ethnic ambiguity. So that you could be read as various different things. Right. And I do think it's important not perhaps, you know, important good. But I do think it's notable that the voice actor for alita is Rosa Salazar who is Peruvian, right? Like, I think right. There's there's something this is what I mean when I say like this film is not good enough for the potential that it could have. There are things that could have been so wonderful about the way this film tackles like identity, and where density resides, and you know, what it means to have, you know, a an able body, you know, there's just so much. But the film is not good enough. And part of it is like because Robert Rodriguez is an incredibly talented, filmmaker is I feel like really cool stuff, you know? But I just feel like it's too ambitious. Also, James Cameron co wrote this. It was like super into this. But apparently got too busy working on those avatar sequels that no one gives a shit about wasn't able to. Thank god. He didn't direct this this film. But but yeah, I like I wasn't. There's no doubt that this Mel positions people of color on the sidelines. Like, they are tangential or at most of parallel to the main body of of white supremacy as it exists in this far future world. And then am I wrong? I didn't have a chance to look this up. But when alita flashes back to when she's doing like her battle angel in, you know, her mentor was that Michelle Rodriguez. Yes. Okay. Okay. Again. What's like there's so much going on? Like also Nova is played by Ed Norton was was supposed to be this big reveal who's like, nobody cares. Yeah. I mean, I think that is this moment at the end to be like oh snap. Noah's Ed Norton. Can't wait for the sequel where we get. Yeah. Absolutely head to head. But like every even going to get that sequel..

And what he does with them afterwards. It's not sexual or anything just doesn't it with posing. Making it look at their smile and enjoying themselves for a family picture, Jack style good making her involved because she's still oh, Brian. It's so bad. I should force you to watch this. I don't know man, you watch HALE county. I did. But I took the I took the chance that would be good because it was nominated for an Oscar anyway as enough of house Jack Bill film, filming America engine, Mirko alita battle angel. She bothered.

She's a fourteen or something in this movie. Anyway, he's a robot. Rosa Salazar plays alita Christoph volts Qian, John all these names Herschel Ali Jennifer Connelly, Ed screen, you might know from deadpool as the bad yet in debt. Bill, Jack hero Haley Edward Norton is in this movie sixty percent rotten tomato and some of them just voices or do you see all their faces because I don't see any. Of them in the trailer. I don't hear Haley. No, I did not know him till I was doing the reason we're gonna see. See? Edward Norton credited, but he is throughout the move. I don't know why they didn't credit them ease in joy being in the movie Dame taking off it probably screen. Yes, you can tell it's at screen. This is a special an animated, film Anderson. I'd get eighty percent of what he's see on screen is partially or entirely CGI. Sounds like ready player. One is very slim ready player one in that respect. You think James was pissed when he's ready player one. No, no, no. There's some good stuff in some very ridiculous stuff. The fight scenes are very well done as a bar fight. This particularly good alita kicks ass, and she is asking young lady very positive role model for not role model, but very positive imagery for young girls to see kicking ass in the movies..

And and she and people killed people for not goddamn Emory's and pretty much the end leaving us with a battle-hardened a more mature adult alita about to get her way sent to Solomon to fight Nova who has been the presence like antagonise throughout the entire film. They're taking quite a big chance of assuming that there's going to be a sequel. Yeah. Yeah. It's it's fine with rob Rodriquez, directing the film Cincinnati to we didn't need this. We need the sequel, and hopefully, you get it. Yeah. Hopefully, it's not fifteen years later. It was city. So a little bit of the historical reverence of of the source material. The book has been I don't know it's been like widely awarded it's pretty much like I would say like ocu- in terms of groundbreaking. And it's it's the. Animation styles. Very nice and sweet, but pretty much it's a legend and people have been wanting to get this out of tation made for a long long time.

"But that shot where she is like jumping between the blades, there was so much depth to it. And it was slow down in such a great way. Like, I was just really I really appreciate the artistry of that moment and of the artistry of on armed alita punching him in the I know that's pretty good. I you guys are gonna matter me for saying this. But you know, we you guys disparage avatar so often I would challenge anybody to look at how literally any action sequence in avatar plays. The the beats of how it plays out the pacing the music of it the choreography the storytelling within the action sequence. It's the difference between a master action. Filmmaker listen, I like, Jeff. Let me reiterate, I don't think avatars bad movie. I just thought we forgot it. And that's a sounding to me. That's all that's. I would go on further, and I would say avatar is kind of a masterpiece. I think. I think a lot of people don't appreciate it again. Like as I said before like to me, I think it's a very subversive because it is about I guy relinquishing his humanity at the end, I think, and it has all those environmental messages and everything which really got. But like the world building, you know, like people, you know, talk about, you know, like a lot of times like oh world buildings good. But whatever, you know, it's like, you know, I think really good world building is not anything to sort of you know, snuff. At like, I think this movie it's showing us a vision of the future that we haven't quite seen before, you know, like, it's not blade runner. It's not ghost in the shell. It's not a Kierra you know, it is it is its own thing. It's kind of melting pot. You know, mixture of like South American and Mexican Japanese, and you know, a whatever Detroit. Like all these different cultures. Just kind of blending. And you know, I think I think it's interesting. You know, what they're doing with their telling a lot of this story. Juster visuals. You could you watch this movie, you know, with the with the sound on mute and still, you know, get the essence of what is going on. I think. Before you say anything is mostly MAC's. You're welcome back anytime. The magic of education. Yeah. I feel like I enjoy this movie. Maybe the way I enjoy attack of the clones and maximum. When we hang out, we often end up talking about the prequels, but I enjoy watching that movie on mute, you know, like the visuals of at the storytelling of it. The the action looks amazing all never say anything. I'll never try to justify the dialogue attack. Clones. I just think it's fun to watch anything that same level. This kind of it's about for me. Yeah. I definitely liked him more than Davy. There's there's there's enough funds stuff that it isn't a waste of time. And and agree with you guys, especially about the three D like and seeing Dolby vision. My God don't vision. Yeah. Beautiful and vibrant. So there's you know, there's some fun to be had it just feels like it's sixty percent there. And I it makes me sad. Because there's enough cool ideas that I wanted it to be a home run. Well here as wrapping up here, we have a unique opportunity on the podcast today. You know, why? Because right now, as we're recording this, it's actually not the weekend after alita battle angel has opened which is usually when we record the episode, we're actually recording this on February eighth, which is as you're listening to this weeks ago. So we don't actually know how well the movie opened think we know when it did. So so now. Long. This is an opportunity for us to predict how much money it's going to open with. I'm gonna ask you all to predict and you don't need to give an exact number. Let's say within twenty five million dollars right like zero to twenty five twenty five to fifty fifty seventy five seventy one hundred like how much you could be considered for this movie. Like, let's set the milestone here this cost how much to good opening for movie this much. Hundred million dollars over one hundred million would be good for this opening weekends..

"Today's going to be a little bit of it abridged episode because we're going to spend the entire thing. Talking about Robert Rodriguez's newest film alita battling. Joel you told me the story of the war when the ground shock sky. The ones that survived. Walk to a different world. By the powerful freight. But that's not the way it has to be. When I found you. You're very human brain was miraculously. It's the loneliest feeling that to know who you are. That was from the trailer for alita battling Jovan use film by director Robert Rodriguez. And I'm going to be the plots from an action packed story of one young woman's journey to discover the truth of who she is and her fight to change the world. So this is guess and development to our I seem to recall that for over a decade over a decade over a decade. You have been wanting to see this story on this for over two decades. I've been wanting to see this movie because we know Jan James Cameron had the rights to this since the nineties since he actively working on it for a long time to this is this is his same like work philosophy with avatar. Just it takes a couple of decades. But we'll get there. So this is based on the graphic novel by you took Shiro and the screenplay is credited to James Cameron, alita color, Greece. I think butcher that. And Robert Rodriguez. And it stars Rosa Salazar. Crystal walls, Jennifer, calmly, Marshall, L E and bunch of other extremely talented people. And so I'm actually going to start with you doing right? He's just start with guest. But I'm gonna start with you. Because you're probably the person have been waiting longest for this film. Probably. Yeah. Was a battle angel worth the wait in your opinion. All I would say I'm not this appointed. I had a lot of fun with this movie. It's not a perfect movie. But in terms of like anime adaptation 's we have seen many most recently goes on the shell which was just a shell of like what made that you know, property, so great. And so interesting it was that movie was like completely Solis. And I don't think this one has that problem. Yeah. Had a ton of fun with it. I think a lot of it really works. Specifically, Rosa Salazar is great in this role in the technology. They're using to create alita. I think is phenomenal. It is an upgrade over what they were doing for avatar except here. Like, it is she's playing what's the sensibly? Like a human looking person. I think I in this movie..

"And it just it wasn't one of those movies where it had had legs. You know, there's there's some movies get a lot of climate. And then people continue to watch him and love him. I don't feel like avatar became that. I suppose not and yet Cameron somehow has a contract to do multiple sequels and he's working on them. So hard. How? Oh hard apparently that he couldn't do this other project that he really wanted to do. Yeah. Yeah. So he finally after ten years handed it off to Robert Rodriguez, and it was an amazing director. Yeah. Known though for his kind of crazy, violent low budget movie. I think he did once upon a time in Mexico. Yeah. The desperado series. But he also did spy kids, which was great for kids was great. And so I I went to this movie mostly to to see the technology. I mean, I didn't know whether the story would be good or bad, and I have to say, it's pretty bad. I have to agree with with most of the critics there on that. Well, it was good is the adventures of shark boy and lava girl, his other film or planet terror come on. It's got to be as good as machete or should I say much day? Yeah. Okay. But but I went mostly to see the technology, which was quite remarkable. What even algae like how the movie was made how? Yeah. Exactly, the main character alita played by Rosa Salazar is actually entirely CGI. Wait a minute played by its she's a she's a cartoon. Yes. She is. But to make the movie she had to be in the scene as a real person wearing a MO cap suit, one of those strange green suits with the with the puff with the little puff on them. Exact tons of dots on her face because and to cameras can you imagine acting with an people have done this before Andy circus did it in a planet of the movies. And so on Anna's gallon in Lord of the rings. A little hint kids listened in Hollywood who wanna get in the movies. Learn how to act with two cameras dots on your face. Exactly. The future Davey. It's amazing. Ashley, and this is the. I imagine acting and you've got this camera rig kind of stuck on your head and pointing back at you from a couple inches away. And it must be very weird. But they did a great job..

Let's start up being shallow as possible. Fashion week in New York. And this is Llamas I fashion week. And so the the internet is a buzz about her bangs the way they were fake. That backup you you. You can do fake bang. He can do color. Yeah. Can I do like a Fallas cover? It thing. Okay. Now that were skin is clear. I'm sorry. But when to all the boys. Before came out. I mean it resonated heavily with our audience. And for for good reason. It was just it was fantastic film. But now. Alita battle angel is out this Thursday. Yes. And it's amazing. It is truly the most epic movie. I've seen in a very long time. It has changed like the CGI the special effects all the action sequences, it's phenomenal. It's going to put a lot of blockbusters to shame. I gotta say it's really really cool ones in particular. On how many films have you been in major release films? I'm sure I guess like six or seven out of all of them. This is on assuming this is the biggest the biggest budget film you've been in. I mean, I've heard this is like they spent a lot of money on this film. I I'm not I don't know. Exactly. How much money they spent on it. But I did X men a longtime ago that that. Yeah. But I know that like, oh, wow. Elitists so good, and like who the special effects, it's truly like the only thing I think that rivals to it is is avatar naturally because it's James Cameron. Right. So it's the each other's babies. But it's so good James Cameron wanted to do a alita battle angel for like ten years. Yeah. And he kept having to put it on the back burner because other things to do. But he he didn't wanna do it until he could fully commit to it. And so James Cameron with a checking account worth billions of dollars wrote big checks. And of course, Lana Condor is a part of it. Like, I said it's out this Thursday that you say, it's a great digital effects. Yeah. But as an actress, you don't you don't really know. They're there when you're acting do you? I mean, they say okay behind you. There's going to be an explosion pretend. There's explosion, right? Yeah. You just you just do your job, and you. Act and he just pretend. But yeah. On this specific film? There's a lot of mo- cap and a lot of weta work Mokaba. It's basically alita she will wear all gray with dots. All black dots. All over her face. And then they digitalize it in post with what? Which is the company that does it. Yeah. This is so beyond anything. Yeah. It's so crazy and then like figuring Cardi B, right? Right. It's it's such a amazing technical experience as well shooting alita because like alita would Rosa Salazar. She had like a camera in front of her face. So when you act with her you can't you can see your eyes, but the rest of our faces covered because there's a like an individual almost like a like a very high tech gopro like right in front of her face. Look at an actor. Let's say Lana. They heavy. Okay. You're in a rowboat and central park. So you know, what around you bird flying their kids playing in your rowing, a boat, you're there, but as an so it's easy to kind of figure out where you are in the scene..
Explainer 138: What does the Wentworth by-election mean for Australias conservatives?
"John Morrison, deuce wave willing chilly. So the people of the strike in the office of prime minister and all be August Morrison became a strenuous forty. Seventh prime minister in the last three months, something like that. Anyway, it's getting tough to keep up his chances of staying in office long enough to enjoy any redecoration. He may have requested took a significant dip at the weekend when he's party contrived to lose a by-election for one of the safest seats in the country and in so doing to the coalition, they lead into a minority government. I knew there would be tough ties, and there would be great dice today is a tough day, but the great dies are coming. Resulted? I is on liberals not on dive sham. The federal electorate of windless embraces several of the richest suburbs of Sydney, the most expensive city in one of the world's wealthiest countries Wentworth has been a look for the liberal party that Morrison leads since that party was founded in nineteen forty four, you'll reminder that Australia's liberal party is actually straights conservative party and for the liberals ancestor parties all the way back to a strenuous first general election in nineteen o one the MP who've AK aided the seat was Morrison's, immediate predescessor as prime minister. Malcolm Turnbull who as recently as two thousand sixteen, retain the seat with sixty two percent of the vote. So the liberal party should know more lose Wentworth than a strenuous cricket. Team should lose a test match to Greenland bellarusse, but lose it. They have and they're tiny parliamentary majority with it. One, the c would make history and my friends, we have made history. With sufficient time having now elapsed to Dan, those torrents of Sheldon for delays tiers of lofta the questions of how and why must be addressed. The liberals loss of Wentworth is a consequence of hubris. Specifically, the kind of complacency that can sit in when you've held a seat for a hundred seventeen years. The candidate they stood was a solid if uninspiring technocrat, who doesn't even live in Wentworth. Although in Dave shamans defense, few people can't afford to. It's the kind of place where even Malcolm Turnbull splendid. Harbourside pile doesn't seem untoward -ly Austin, Texas, and he'd been reluctant to relocate to the prime minister's official residence because he didn't want to move to smaller house. A contemptible has offered to stay in his fifty million dollar plus homicide mansion rather than move into the official Sydney residents curability house. The prime minister said his own house is closer to his grandson, and that he and his wife will use cure villi flu official functions and that sort of get up that, what do you think? But to criticize the liberals choice of candidate is to say nothing of the monstrous blundered caused the by election in the first. Place, which was the liberal party's decision to oust turn before the end of his term in an attempt to bathe in a more popular newly before the next general election ju by may two thousand nineteen if opinion polls, and now went worth, are any guide. The liberals have committed the Aira recently endemic industry in politics of chosing alita better liked by these Ellas party hardcore than by a bewildered voting public. Which brings us to what might be gleaned from went with choice of new MP. The by election in windward. She is Karen Phelps previously president of the astray in medical association and deputy Lord male Sydney, she stood for Wentworth. It should be made clear as an independent. The world has not turned entirely upside down and the liberals losing Wentworth to labor would not merely be like a stroke. Cricket team losing test match to Greenland or Belarus, but to Greenland or Bila Russa's basketball scored. But it's what Phillips believes and perhaps who Philps is, which suggests that the liberal party might have misjudged the direction in which the wind is blowing. The liberal party has long banked usually correctly on the idea that forest Reagan's economic conservatism and social conservatism of the same thing. The voters of Wentworth are begging to differ VO they are as unlikely as ever to hoist. The scarlet standard. Join a chorus of the Internationale and begin distributing this bay yacht factory workers. They've just elected gay woman who's policy priorities are climate change, and the fate of asylum seekers marooned on the rue industry is offshore holding facility. Young people, any women, any sparring independence out there? If you are thinking of running from parliament or running for public office? Yes, incumbent tough. Yes. The road can be hard, but it is so worth while that we have the right people stepping up to represent string. Now, only just governing party has me and months to get a more persuasive act together else, spare a thought for observers, Austrailia, politics, who will find themselves confronting these sixth occupant of the prime minister's office this decade and with all the jokes about revolving doors and the Jek deceits already long since done for monocle twenty four. I'm Andrew.

"Asli consider it you mentioned be alita we talked to in the earlier part of the show his qualifying offers me prebaked it's can be about five million and i'm not sure given minnesota's want to dodge the tax i think bielema is probably more useful in a better player than say crawford or you know derrick rose another guy who maybe he comes back on the mini mid level there certainly seems to be in the tea leaves based on whatever was saying after the season i would rather be lita than rose or crawford just because they have so much shot gracia on the team they already have a cost controlled backup point guard in ties jones who's totally fine but i don't think it's gonna go that way so i could see them just not making him a golfing offer a how do you read it i read it the same way and i would be disappointed in that but could absolutely see it being the case especially because the offer would be a significant sum of money and and then also if he takes the qualifying offer which billy to certainly could then they wouldn't have the ability to trade him without his consent and so that gives the player a lot of power and would limit their options like let's say minnesota wants to clear that cap space and what they want they don't want to pay the tax next year then pay the tax in eighteen nineteen it will be hard for them if billy to if they extend that offer even if he takes it and that's all that it is and then it gets complicated for in future years d other challenging element for them is co aldridge because aldridge you'll only has two million guaranteed but it would be imprudent for minnesota to stretch that because they're nineteen twenty and twenty twenty one seasons will probably be more expensive so you don't want to throw more money on this books something that they've done i think in the past and was a mistake kevin martin is a good example this i don't think they should have stretched him and they.
