"The 20 Indian troops killed in a fight with Chinese soldiers this summer on the two countries Himalayan border. And he used his visit to rail against the Chinese Communist Party, or CCP. The CCP is no friend to democracy, the rule of law. Tom Hair, Esper signed a pact with India to share sensitive satellites often used to steer muscles and drones. Big things are happening. As our democracy is aligned to better protect the citizens of our two countries and indeed of the free world. The US has long seen India as a bulwark against China, and the Trump Administration has pushed India to buy more US weapons. But there was an awkward moment when India's defense secretary was asked whether he's willing to stop buying Russian weapons. That depends on negotiations. Demure Tanvi Madan at the Brookings Institution, says it's significant that India hosted Pompeo an Esper Well, tensions are so high with China after that border crisis this summer. At another time, India might have declined to do AH, high profile visit like this with American officials, George a time of crisis in case China was provoked further at a press conference.

Pandemic power-grabs: autocrats seize Covid opportunism
"At the beginning of this year, protests were roiling India. For one hundred days, hundreds of thousands of Indians raged against proposed changes to citizenship laws that would discriminate against Muslims. It was the biggest campaign of civil resistance in decades. But the protests swiftly died out after local curfews were imposed in response to covid nineteen curfews that were particularly strict in mostly Muslim neighborhoods. Too many these new it seemed like a calculated move by the Hindu nationalist Prime Minister Narendra Modi quashing dissent under the cover of the pandemic we'll muddy don't believe. In. A televised address to the nation on Tuesday, he underscored the dangers of the virus and called for renewed vigilance as the country heads into it's festival season. Eve. The bobbly. Deployed but behind the scenes, there's growing evidence that he's been using the crisis for his own partisan ends. Last month citing the risk of covid nineteen spreading within India's parliament. He announced measures that severely hampered lawmakers questioning the government the opposition walked out allowing this mody to Ram through twenty five bills in three days. These kinds of authoritarian tactics are on the rise around the world. The think tank Freedom House counts eighty countries where the quality of democracy and respect for human rights have deteriorated this year. The pandemic has been terrible not only for the human body, but also for the body politic Robert Gassed economists foreign editor. With everyone's attention on covid nineteen, what a crats and would be autocrats in many parts of the world have figured out that they can do all kinds of bad things safe in the knowledge that the rest of the world will barely notice let alone object and where are the countries where this is the most worrying it's a completely global phenomenon. A one end you've got China, which was a dictatorship before the pandemic but has really cracked in Hong Kong the human rights abuses against the we have gotten worse this year we're finding a lot of places is that the pandemic gives governments very reasonable cause for tightening down on on civil liberties for reasons of public health. But. What then happens is that many of them have taken it further than that. So it's not just that they are restricting public gatherings to stop people spreading the virus. They're also using those rules to prevent demonstrations and protests against their own terrible policies and what does that kind of repression look like in practice So you take in Uganda for example, it was an opposition member of parliament called Francis. Zach. Who noticed that? He's constituents we're going hungry because of the recession caused by nineteen. So he's the give them some help you know packages of rice and sugar just to get them through the hard times. Government had said that only the government was allowed to give out food and if anyone else tried it the government said they do incompetently, the crowds would gather and that would spread the virus. So the president actually said, you know we will charge you with murder if you try to hand out food aid when you don't the government will from. The opposition member of parliament. He was very careful to do it in a way that wasn't going to spread the virus. do packages and have them delivered individually to people's doors on on the backs of motorcycles the day off the he did it the police came to his home. He says jumped the fence while he was showering through minivan dragged him off, put them in prison tortured. Him are unbelievably horribly and they said to him while doing doing it we can do anything we want to you because no one can come out and protest because there will look down because of the pandemic. And that's something we're hearing. All over the. World. And it seems in a lot of cases though that it it's these leaders are doubling down on the kinds of populist attitudes and policies that put them in power in the first place. That's exactly right now, one of the strange things about a panic about a contagious disease, and this is something we can see from academic work that's been done on prior pandemics is that people become a bit less rational and a bit more xenophobic if your political persona is someone who is going to stand Up to external threats, then pandemic is a great time to double down on that. So you see Narendra Modi is government in India has always named Muslims for many of the problems in India, and now they're blaming the most super spreaders of the virus in Bulgaria seeing Hauch lockdowns on Romany neighborhoods and others are Turkeys religious authorities blaming gay people first spreading the virus Malaysian officials are blaming migrant workers, some of whom have been caned and deported. So you're seeing lots of this stuff it's a strangely Popular response when people get and I suppose pandemic conditions make it somewhat easier for for autographs for governments to control message. Well absolutely you're seeing a significant increase in the number of restrictions on the press and it's usually done in the name of public health. So people will pass a law against spreading fake news about the virus, which would, of course be be dangerous and they used that to criminalise any criticism of the government's response to the virus, which is completely different things. So you think all over the place. So in Zimbabwe anyone who disseminates wall, they called false information that impedes the. Response to the virus can get up to twenty years in prison and they're arresting people for things like trying to visit in hospital opposition activists who've been been by the ruling party in. El. Salvador they purged seventy journalists and relaunched a state TV outlet on the the president said I. I'm am watching a very balanced news cost with grin and then adds i. don't know what the opposition will see because of course, what they will see is something that's actually pro ruling party. But look innocence global freedom was slipping autocracy in general sense was rising. I, mean how much of this? Can we definitively pin on the pandemic? You'll right global freedom has been declining since probably just about before the financial crisis of two thousand and seven to eight. So this represents a an acceleration of pre existing trend and with each individual violation of human rights you can never say I mean, it's it's like weather and climate change. You can never say this incident could not have happened without the pandemic I mean would would China's rulers still have inflicted such horrors on on the weekends this year without Covid nineteen with Thailand's King of grabbed nearly absolute powers. would. Would Egypt executed fifteen political prisoners in a single weekend this month maybe they would have done those things but these these outrages would surely have faced stronger opposition. If the whole world's attention had been focused on the pandemic, which is tossing everybody's lives in chaos and sucking up all the attention is much easier to get away with these things without the rest of the world looking at what you're doing. So we can be pretty confident that his a significant factor in why things have gone worse this year.
Netflix Misses Q3 Subscriber Forecast, Stock Falls
"In the past twelve months shares of Netflix are up more than two hundred percent so. Forgive me for not wringing my hands over the fact that shares of Netflix are down about six percent. This morning third quarter profits came in lower than expected. That said. Weakest. Subscriber growth in four years. That's I don't know. It doesn't seem like something to worry a lot about, but it certainly is noteworthy. Actually, think it's something that's kind of to be expected. So there's something called the pull forward effect, which is there's rapid growth in the first half of the year. So then the dot com steals, the subscribers would have happened in the back half of the year. So they added two point, two, million new subscribers, which is less than the three point three, million predicted. By. In total for the year, they added over twenty six million customers, which is more than they did of all of last year. So through the first nine months of twenty, twenty they've. got a point, one million members and they're on pace to add thirty, four, million users in two, thousand twenty, which will be their strongest year of growth. Aber so even though this quarter is the lowest number. Since two thousand fifteen if you kind of zoom out look at the big picture, they're going to to almost two hundred million customers in total, which if you're going to compare it to Disney sixty point, five, million subscribers who has about thirty million. So it's still by and large the most popular. Streaming site. Did Not get a chance to listen to the conference call. Do you know the extent to which management game guidance on production schedule because that's certainly we certainly seen that in the traditional movie? Industry, of Television as well to a lesser degree, but we've seen a lot of movies just stopped production altogether. Did they give any guidance on their own pipeline? They did. So they finish fifty projects since the initial shutdown and they will release more programs next year in twenty twenty, one minute didn't twenty twenty. They are returning to production mainly in Europe and in Asia not as much. So in the US, they're currently filming season for of Stranger things they're filming red notice which I don't know if that's based on the book by Bill. Browder. But if it is, I'm excited to watch it. They're filming season two of the witcher. So they seem that they are both finishing filming finishing production and filming and re ramping filming outside of the US. One of the things I did know Yeah. The headline is a subscriber growth in four years their subscriber growth in the Asia Pacific region was really strong this last quarter. Yeah, it was the largest contributor to paid membership growth. So it was forty six percent of the global paid net ads. So I think that that's an interesting kind of problem or gift that they have is they now have such a global subscriber base. So you have to see shows that are in English, and then you have to see shows that are in different languages and you have to see show that widely appeal like I don't know if you watched Indian matchmaking but that was an interesting show that appealed to. I think you know I'm not watching a match making show I heard a plus reviews my sister really liked it. But I think that that's an interesting kind of experiment and you see that it was very popular in India but it was also super popular in the US trying to figure out how they can get shows and movies that have that wide appeal while also focusing on those knee shows as well that do really well like the umbrella academy or the Social Dilemma the documentary that came out.
Los Angeles Dodgers Game Tonight
"Story game, one of the world's Siri's between our Tampa Bay Rays and the Los Angeles Dodgers. It kicks off at eight tonight. Yesterday we had raised baseball insider from 95 3 w. D. A Steve Kearney on to give us a preview from the res perspective. So today I wanted to have someone on to take us inside the Dodgers organization, and there's only one person you want for something like that. Joining me now on the hotline is Andy McCullough, former baseball writer for the L. A. Times and now senior writer for the athletic You can follow his reporting on Twitter at by McCullough, Andy. Thank you so much for taking some time to explain to raise fans what they're up against in this Siri's and let's start with the fact that Dodgers have been a contender for years Now. What's held them back from winning a world serious title? Well, kind of. Yeah, I mean, I guess the short answer was 2017. They played it. He may have been cheating on me. You know, in 2018. They played a team who was better than them talk to also were subsequently accused of, you know, fine feeling and punished for it legally. And then last year, they kind of like bungled their pitching set up in the NLDS in law. Do you know the team that won the World Series? The national? I mean, I guess nothing kept him back. I guess if you wantto concede all that stuff is their death players have not played At their best in the highest levels. Moment, of course here, including Challenger did not hit particularly well in your courses. 18 Clayton Kershaw on Kendall Jansen and had some high profile sort of, you know failures in the post season, So I mean, it's really just, you know, they're superstars haven't played, you know as well as they could have, And that's really how you win in October is your best players have really, really well. Tell us about the changes the Dodgers made going into this season to try to finally take that next step. I mean, they traded for movie death, and that is a big one. I mean, yeah, like it's simple, but it's also pretty profound. The effect he had on the team. I mean, you just thought in the end, he didn't even hit particularly well. But in the field I mean Indian 5 67. He made a really like like game changing eventually reason saving catches. Huge defensive, please. When you add a player like that reduces the pressure on guys like Seger and Gallinger, and just because we know they know that you're gonna have some sort of value added that that way, and so that's the big thing is that they were the best team in baseball without you know, last year and, you know, add a guy who's you know, probably The second best player in the floor behind my trial to add him to the roster. I mean, it just It was a really game changer that that's a different issue. I'm joined by senior writer for the athletic Andy McCullough, who's been following the Dodgers for years.

New species of water bear uses fluorescent 'shield' to survive lethal UV radiation
"Tar Degrades you know the adorable microscopic water bears that can survive basically anything like being frozen for thirty years and then being revived again or as a species surviving all five mass extinctions. will newly discovered strain of tar grade has another superpower protection from lethal levels of ultraviolet light. A recent study published in the Royal Society Journal found that the Para macrobiotics because our strain of tar grade I detected in Bangalore exhibits of fluorescent shield to protect against UV, light causing them to glow. Quoting. C.. N. For the experiment send deep M S RAPA Assistant Professor at the Indian Institute of Science exposed this tar grade along with another type of tar degrade hippies exemplary to UV, light all of the Para macrobiotics agreed survived for thirty days after fifteen minutes of exposure to the lethal raise the other tar degrade died within twenty four hours of exposure. The hardy tar degrade was also the only specimen observed the experiment to have glowed under the harsh light which the researchers revealed the key to their survival. The research team proposed that the tar degrade has fluorescent shield that absorbs the harmful light and emits a harmless blue light, which is what causes them to glow after discovering that their ability to glow was the tar degrade secret weapon S. Orapa made a fluorescent extract from the Para macrobiotics be alarmed strain and covered the other type of tar degrade used in the experiment in the protective material when exposed to UV light this enhanced tardy grade which had originally died from exposure to the radiation after a day showed partial tolerance and quotes. The light used in the experiment is stronger than the UV light that reaches us on earth from the Sun. But after conducting more experiments on tar degrades Esmeralda to expand his research and says, it's possible in extract of the fluorescent shield from the tar degrade could be used as a sunscreen for
How To Self Publish Your Book Online With XinXii Publishing
"What's happening? I am just absolutely tickled to death that you take a little bit of time out today to spend a little bit of time with me to talk about one of my favorite things in self-publishing books. And you know how long we've been talking about it. They're going on sixteen weeks straight of discussing all the different Avenues it rest assured. We're not quite done but this is probably going to be one of the last month or this type of publishing they're going to talk about we're going to switch over into aggregate publishing and audiobook publishing more importantly in the coming weeks. So let's focus on this long last option. Now, this is not to say that I've exhausted every Avenue. I've just hit all the major Avenues some of the areas that people have asked me about the thing with self-publishing a book on off online is it can be overwhelming it can seem like oh my gosh, there's Amazon. There's Apple there's Barnes & Noble. There's Kobo. There's racket since rackets in scope. Oh, I said it twice just coughing. Twice is nice. There's smashwords. There's draft the Jewelers published. Oh my gosh. Well, I thought what better way to break it all down then just do an entire podcast series about this off. So in any event, we're going to be discussing an aggregate publisher an aggregate publisher works like this you upload your content to their platform and they feed it out to numerous Avenues on your behalf. Typically, typically an aggregate publisher takes a percentage of the net profits that come in from the different areas. Okay. Now too bad, there's other ones like published drive that charge a fee a subscription fee to do it since she's not so much like that, but I'm going to put a little bit of an asterisk next to this. So we're going to be talking about Shinji full disclosure song. I'm just curating information here. I've never used them. In fact today. I actually started breaking ground and started uploading an audiobook cuz I'm really curious. They have some Avenues. I don't see a page or through other areas like a CX or find a way voices or published drives. So I said, let's go and give this a shot. There's a little bit of an ambiguity about it though, and I'm going to discuss it here. Get too far ahead of myself. So Shen she's the name of the company. It's spelled x i n x i i and look it up. Yes. It is pronounced Shen. She actually found a video of someone saying it that actually is from the companies and she so european-based company and I always try to cross check to see if they're legit. If any aggregate Publishers good the alliance of Indian authors is one of the best organizations to cross-check any kind of services for self-publishers. You have something that's called the Watchdog service and on that Watch Dog service, they fully vet competition and they don't mince words if there's something a little bit of skew a little bit off. They're not going to recommend it. They'll probably put a caution rating or even avoid it altogether. With Shadow, it gets a recommended rating. Now that is like the top award, you know, there is excellent partner. But since she's not a partner, they're just recommending. So it's without that partner relationship that they have the recommendation. So that speaks volumes ahead of time. Keep in mind Ally the alliance of independent. Authors is run by any authors for any others. Isn't that somebody getting their you know Palms greased saying well, you know, if you give us good words, well, we'll go ahead and pay a little extra. Something doesn't work that way. So in any event, they distribute ebooks and audiobooks but no print books. And so if you're looking for another print-on-demand Avenue Shane, she's not it off. I try to do some digging to see if that was something I was coming any time soon, but I didn't find anything about it. Let's learn. With the books. They accept files. Oh my gosh, like I think thirty different file types. I will mention these ones real briefly here doc ePub PDF. Text PowerPoint. What? Yeah, they accept PowerPoint Excel. Yeah, they accept Excel spreadsheets what PostScript and so many more years. There's no minimum requirement or maximum threshold. Now, I'm going to have a little bit of an asterisk here because I saw they said there's no minimum requirement off. No, ma'am ran out of pages. Technically there is there is and and looks like it too far ahead ourselves here distribution goes out to Amazon the example Bookstore Barnes & Noble Google Kobo Scribd. They have 27 Avenues in total Plus. the shaanxi author page now Shinji author page is essentially a way that you can distribute through the senshi platform and because it's an aggregate publisher. You'll be going to the various Avenues. Let's say you're Distributing ebook over to Amazon. Everybody knows that if you have your book price between 299 and 99 at 70% through Amazon KDP. Well,

Making sure American Indian COVID-19 cases are counted, and feeding a hungry heart
"The Corona virus pandemic underscores an issue Abigail Hawk the chief research officer of the Seattle Indian health. Board has been fighting her entire career, the exclusion of native people in public health data. We know that the data that's being collected across the United States isn't collecting race and ethnicity correctly however, even with that incredible lack of data, the data that we do have shows an incredible disparity. Growing up in rural Alaska. Echo Hawk was surrounded by examples of how a native community diligently cared for one. Another I was raised amongst incredible people who were the very first public health practitioners. I ever saw if somebody needed fed, they fed them. If somebody needed a ride to a doctor, a five hour trip tankards, Alaska, they drove them. All of my scientific background comes from that space of understanding what it means to serve the community and also the. As an indigenous person, I come from thousands of years of incredible indigenous scientists but after being stereotyped mistreated while seeking prenatal care in Seattle. Washington she knew how she can make an impact in her community. I had a medical assistant question me on how much I had been drinking. She pulled up my sleeves and then I realized she was checking my arm to see had track marks. It was really traumatizing to me is a a young person. I was only nineteen years old and as a result of that experience I didn't get prenatal care until I was in my second trimester, I became a grassroots advocate to ensure that native women were properly treated because we have some of the highest. Rates of infant mortality and maternal mortality within this country and as I went through my college years that turned into what I did my thesis on, she went on to study health policy at the University of Washington, but it wasn't easy navigating between Western, and indigenous knowledge systems. It was hard to balance who I was native person versus what the university is expected me to be and what Western science wanted almost insisted I had to be it became another struggle to be seen as relevant. As smart and as knowledgeable, the other people in the room, and in fact, in the first year of my career I would say that I did not actively practice indigenous science. We come from thousands of years of data gatherers in my communities. We know how to ensure that our corn grows for example, in a time where there is complete droughts I was called out by one of my elders in the fact that I no longer was representing or being an indigenous person it reminded me of. Who I was, and that I would not make any difference in my community. If I didn't go back to the knowledge that I knew was right that I knew was ethical. I was able to incorporate that and not only see how western science has a lot of basis in indigenous knowledge systems. But I also feel that western science needs to quit coming to indigenous people because they think we have all of the problems they need to come to us because we have all of the answers. Today Echo Hawk as the director of the urban Indian Health Institute, a Seattle based organization seeking to decolonize data by putting native people's priorities at the forefront of data collection by being intimately involved in the collection of information native people can shape the narratives told about their communities data and a Western context has always been used against native people. It has been used to show how bad off we are how higher suicide rates are higher diabetes is how we don't achieve the same educational standards Western folks that deficit narrative continues to build support stereotypes of those communities as being less than not as smart of they're responsible for. Their own health disparities all of those things as a result of that, many of our communities have protected themselves and have not participated actively data-gathering efforts across the United States and across the world and that was absolutely the right thing for them to do was to protect themselves. Tribal communities have a right to ensure that data gathered about them is used for their benefit and that they maintain ownership in control over that controlling the data also means making sure that indigenous people are counted in federal and state data sets in the United States. A practice not always followed despite a treaty agreement between tribal nations and the United States. Government. The US census didn't proactively count American Indians until eighteen sixty and this earth of data was used as settle on native peoples land. One of the things that we actively are fighting against is that a small population people don't gather the data about US correctly or they don't gather it at all. So very often albeit presentation, it will say a little asterix that we were American Indians Alaska natives were statistically insignificant to me. That is one of two things either you did not actively try or didn't know how to connect with the community to gather the data you needed to, and the other is, is that when? You eliminate us in the data. You are actively participating in the ongoing genocide of American Indians and Alaska natives, and that seems really strong to say, and yes, it is and I believe it one hundred percent. So I ask people to question these practices that they're doing and recognize that. Yes, I know they're not inherently individually racist but they're participating in a system that has been meant to eliminate my people. These data collection issues remain a major problem in the covid nineteen pandemic initially Echo Hawk was unable to access the CDC breakdown of race ethnicity data. Once she saw the data, she was unimpressed with its quality and breadth. What we found in twenty three states is that native people were three point five times more likely to be infected with covert than Non Hispanic whites. Why did we only do twenty three states in the country? because. The rest of the state simply hadn't gathered enough data for us to be able to analyze what was happening within their states. So only twenty three states had gathered seventy percent of their race ethnicity data policymakers are trying to make data driven decisions. How can they make data driven decisions with bad data? Gathering this data, the resources that we need are not being. In the right way because we don't know how to allocate them. Correctly, Echo Hawk has provided training to universities and the State Department about how to correctly collect race and ethnicity data as well as how to restructure their database systems to better serve indigenous people in all realms of public health. We know that there's about a twenty increase in domestic violence right now as a result of Covid and many of folks who could leave their homes for work or school or things like that to get away from their abusers for an amount of time no longer can do that. I'm deeply dedicated towards the safety of victims of sexual violence and domestic violence and other types of intimate partner violence and so. I am actively working with a large county here in Washington state where we are changing their database system. We are also going to assist them in working with the local tribal communities on what it means. Once they collect that data, how that data is shared back to the tribal communities, how it's analyzed and what kind of meaningful change can come from that at the end of the day. The individual story behind the data guides, echo hawks work. We are also listening to the stories of the community, the impact of a family who's lost both parents the impact of a tribe where cove nineteen has just ravishing through their communities causing so much destruction that qualitative data is justice important as the quantitative data. Simply. Because right now, we don't have enough of that quantitative data to get to those decision makers. So they can make those data driven decisions. Every single data point is a mother is grandfather is an uncle is an anti is relative. We have a responsibility to the story and two story teller to the story. We have a responsibility to ensure that it builds the strength of the community. It identifies gaps that we can then go in and work towards filling that it also shows the strength and the resilience season, the answers that are held within our community by hope for my great. Great. Great. Great. Great. Great grandchildren. That they are not facing the same battles that I am facing that we have an opportunity to come together now as allies within the scientific community recognize we have gone wrong and to see our path forward.

Black Women & Intimate Partner Violence
"Thank you so much for joining us today. Dr West thank you so much for having me Yeah I'm very pleased you a join us and always appreciate having someone who has a history. So much research that you've done relates black women as it relates to intimate partner violence and domestic violence, and so I'm curious to hear the Aleutian may be of some of. That work and how it may be looks different now than it did maybe even ten years ago in doing the work. So what we learned in the last ten years or so we have better research and that's one huge advance in the field that I own. So I, would say, think about ten African American women that you know via brand family member a coworker. or of those women according to. National. Statistics. will be a victim of. Violence Sexual assault or stalking. After the age of eighteen at the hands of an intimate partner it really is various stark to tick when you shared right like if you think about yourself in a group of nine girlfriends, that is quite a lot of people in the group who will have been impacted by this exactly. Yeah. That's devastating. Yeah, and so it it sounds like you're suggesting that it is not as urgent to people as really should be absolutely I think in some ways ironically with black women violence, it's so visible because his impacting us all the time which makes ironically invisible because nobody's talking about it You know interestingly enough of course, we have a very public violence situation between I think they were in a relationship Tori lanes and make the stallion rate, and so we have a very public example right now and I think it feels like it has brought together all of the pieces of your research in this one incident, right so we see that there has been lots of backlash against big for sharing this information, but even on her in. Initial reluctant to press charges or to say anything even on the scene because of fear for herself in fear for him and the other people who were there with him that evening. So I'm curious to hear more about your thoughts about how the media and just you know other black people have really kind of really ganged up on her in a lot of ways in are not necessarily believing her there were quite a few means shared when this initially happened I mean even now you knows horry lanes has come. Out with a new album, I've not listened to it. I wasn't a fan of his music even before I mean definitely not now but you know it sounds like there are some suggestions he's making on the album that he didn't do it right and so it very much feels like the pain that she has experienced is not being taken seriously, and in some ways he's trying to invalidate that it even happened in the ways that she saying it did and I think that we need to understand that what happened. Is actually a reality in the lives of too many African American women, black women or more likely to be killed by intimate partner at double the rates of white women often times sir when they're killed their killed by intimate partner in the context, would you see a handgun in the context of an argument and so she was Lucky actually that she didn't recover those statistics. Yeah. Yeah and it is very unfortunate. Me Know both the incident and the aftermath that we are now kind of seeing clout on social media, Indian magazines, another websites and stuff, and so I do WanNa hear a little bit more because it does feel like it's often very complicated situation and I have a background in college student mental health, and so have worked with lots of young women who maybe have been sexually assaulted infield Berry. Mixed feelings about whether they want to press charges right. So we know again the backdrop in which we exist in terms of police violence and how stories are not often taken seriously in the system, and so there is often some trepidation about do I prioritize you know trying to get justice for myself bursts what might happen to this black man in the system and I love to hear more about you know what has come out in terms of your work related to that. Happens and I think it's deeply rooted in history I. Think Historically. Women have mellowness from the very beginning where we just don't talk about these things because we know that there's a safety issue and it really is we're really kinda groomed and taught and encouraged to take sides against ourselves. I'm wondering, do you have some ideas about how we can begin to kind of shift that conversation so that we you know again, I think it is a very complicated situation, but it feels like the answer can't always be at our expense. Exactly think part of it is just really start having critical conversations about domestic violence and sexual assault of gender-based violence within the community. I, think oftentimes this expectation or belief that women are lying. Not happening that it's not really real but as I see it with the statistics, if four out of ten of US experienced this, this is very real. So we need to store opening our eyes and seeing these aren't. Strangers are there these are people in your social network that you know and listening to their stories and hearing their stories

The Indigenous Practice of Controlled Burning to Prevent Wildfires
"Four out of five of the largest wildfires ever recorded in California have occurred this year five, million acres of land have burned on the west coast. As officials look for solutions they're turning more and more to the native Americans who have long been forced out of tending to the land they once stewarded. So successfully, specifically officials have begun working more with tribal leaders on prescribed burning knowing when and. Where to intentionally burned parts of the forest in a manageable way to prevent out of control wildfires in the future quoting the New York Times long before California was California native Americans used fire to keep the land where they lived healthy that meant intentionally burning excess vegetation at regular intervals during times of the year when the weather would keep blazes smaller in cooler than the destructive wildfires burning today. The work requires a deep understanding of how wins would spread flames down a particular hillside or win lighting a fire in a forest would foster the growth of certain plants and that knowledge has been passed down through ceremony in practice. But until recently, it has mostly been dismissed as unscientific and quotes. Various organizations run by native American, communities have worked with other conservancy nonprofits and private landowners over the years to help them repair forested areas and make them more sustainable and in some parts of the southeastern United States prescribed fire has already been in practice officially by state governments for several decades. But on the West Coast, the practice has long been suppressed quoting again over the course of California's long colonial history native Californians were violently systematically systematically stripped of the ability to tend the land they had lived on for centuries as white settlers pursued gold, timber, and territory. This, dark history unfolded while modern firefighting agencies and techniques were formed under the heavy influence of Europeans who wanted to maximize timber halls said, Mary Huffman director of the indigenous.

Tribe Department of Natural, resources wrote in a piece for the Guardian the crew people were shot for burning as recently as the nineteen thirties. The idea of prescribed burning remained polarizing for decades as federal and state firefighting agencies were built up around the idea that wildfire was an enemy to be defeated using military-style tactics not a tool that could help prevent destruction and quotes. Now the US Forest Service and the State of California will be working intentionally with tribal leaders on prevention tactics including prescribed fire. It's a step in the right direction, but like everything will come with complications not only have the centuries of suppression built a deep mistrust, but the land itself has changed and new tactics accounting for climate change will need to be teased out while it's definitely a net positive Belinda Brown, a member of the Cosa Band of the Jima way ought to gain nation and travel partnerships director for the low Mukasey Restoration Project said quote we're getting that I told you so hard.

Instead, he endured a different kind of childhood trauma. He was ignored in favor of his half brothers and sisters according to psychiatrist Bruce, Perry, feelings of parental neglect can lead to increased aggression and cruelty. He adds that one of the most disturbing elements of this aggression is that it is often accompanied by a detached cold lack of empathy. Charles started showing signs of this developing aggression over the next three years. He joined a gang of street thugs who attacked and robbed on spending tourists. Unsurprisingly, his criminal activity didn't win his father's affection. In fact, when Noyon Alfons returned to Saigon in nineteen fifty to poach on sent eight-year-old Charles. His mother it's likely that the feeling of being unwanted by both parents haunted Charles for the rest of his life. In Saigon, Charles was still a handful. So in an attempt to curtail the unruly behaviour, Stepfather Alfonse formally adopted Charles, but it made no difference.

When these stories originated due to the oral storytelling, tradition of the way, people's no name or data assigned any of these stories that have been passed down from one generation to the next for an untold amount of time. First story is called the Ojibway who slew the Wendy Go. Long ago the Ojibway people were sick. A terrible epidemic was killing them. There was a man called Obermann, who got sick and died in death. He traveled West where it's more beautiful than the sunset. When he got to the river that he would have to cross to the other side, the spirits asked him. Why are you grieving Obermann? He answered because people are dying. The spirits told Odin. He was to return to the way it was to tell them that their teacher was coming to teach them about the good life. Their teacher would bring to the ojibway their rituals and ceremonies to help them get over the hills in their lives, though saddened traumatic times that all experience. Over the years Yoji way experience many traumas. That is the way of the wind ago. A story is told of the window running amok amongst their people and killing them. There've been thousands of a job way in many villages. Before the wind came, the wind was killing everyone so in a man challenged the way to go to a race. If the way man won the Wendy, go would leave. They raced and the man lost. After that the Wendy go continued killing their people as the wind go continued to kill GPA, people another way man had a dream that he could defeat the wind to go. In his dream, he talked to a grandma who shared a story. She told the man that you traveled around to find out who was left. She had gathered the remaining ojibway children, and took them with her, and made them practice running upon a lake back and forth all day long day after day in preparation for the next race with the wind ago. Fuck! Yeah, grandma gets it. Train high putting some Jim Hours. If you'RE GONNA hope to defeat to go. You can't just roll up the track you know no preparation. Expect to be the monster. S. Fifteen foot tall craziest run thing. You gotta pop off the blocks to beat that bitch. And then the story goes. There were fifteen children remaining in each time a race occurred another child died. Oh okay, it's a bummer. Maybe. Grandma didn't have some you know. Good kids to work with training can only take you so far. You know if you don't have natural talent. says. Grandma will be the last one to raise the wind to go and I think she dies 'cause she doesn't show up again the story so that's that's bummer. A dream after all. Dreams are weird. The dude having this dream now all of a sudden. He's racing the wind to go and he wins yes. And the wind to go dies because that's what happens in this weird dream race. Is A dream death race? First Place gives you I don't know. Bragging rights in second place gives you death. Gives life second-place gives you death now the wind goes brother to go demands to raise the man and you'll. Jiwei man whoops his ass to this guys greased lightning. But this win go is die right away. He begs the ojibway man for mercy, but you man doesn't give him any mercy Cozma Liar and kills him to in the new G. Women races around the land of his people, and he sleighs many other windows. At regular wind. You had to take care of and that is a terrible infestation, right? That's hard to find an exterminator to take on that job you call and ask someone to come out and handle your termite infestation in no problem, of course we their ants. Hey, you gotTA. Bud CNC tomorrow. Wendy goes click hello. Hello! The OJ man kill all, but a few wendy goes. Some ran away the north, Brad. The white walkers showed up in the north, and the story ends with Yoji. Way Man Given Jiwei children that were boy names, so the world would now know who they are the end. What does the story about I think it's less about monsters more about being a strong people, not losing your identity, not letting some oppressor. Kill your people. Pretty sure Wendy go symbolizes the white man tale so. I feel awkward as a white man say Netflix thing is true. That's move onto the next og. Way Story. This is the Wendy go in the baby. It's like that movie, three men and a baby, except it's completely different in every single way. So, the story goes. One winter newly married couple went hunting with the other people would they moved to the hunting grounds? A child was born to them one day as they were looking at him in his cradle board and talking to him, the child spoke to them. They were very surprised because he was too young to talk. Where is that sky? Spirit asked the baby. They say he's a very powerful or they say he's very powerful. In some day. I'm going to visit him.

If you'd like some Wendy, go MERC after today's episode, also bad magic merged dot com, and that's all the announcements for today moving back into the real reason. You're here extra quick today. Let's get to some show. There are a ton of different American Indian legends, regarding all kinds of different creatures. Why are there so many different legends well because there's so many different tribes each with their own distinct his folklore. Take a look into the tribal makeup of North America before we dive into the legend today I was I was a little to myself for knowing so little about all of the people who lived in this land before me live in land I've lived in for my entire life. There's five hundred sixty, eight different, federally recognized American Indian tribes, and just the United States alone. Over five hundred, so many different peoples. Now all just kind of lumped in together a lot of the time, two, hundred and twenty nine are located in the gigantic state of Alaska and the remainder spread throughout the rest of the US, the two thousand ten US sense reported that there were two point nine million people with pure American Indian ancestry in an additional two point, three million people of mixed American Indian ancestry, the combined population in two thousand ten was five point two million American Indians. Just US figures. They don't take into account millions of additional American Indians who live in Canada Mexico. Latin, America hundreds and hundreds of additional tribes. And, then there are many many more tribes and South America people that mind today you know, even though we're GONNA pop into candidate for some stories, primarily just folks, legends from tribes located in the present day us who knows how many other legends out there in the Americas? How did all these tribes get here, oh? We talked a bit about that two years ago and Aztec Suck June of two thousand, eighteen, so much human sacrifice in that one as tax loved a good sacrifice. And kills some kids in a in a heartbeat to grow some corn. But it's been a while been a while, so let's revisit today. How the various tribes of the US made its North America? Many thousands of years before Christopher Columbus ships landed in the Bahamas a group of people discovered America, the nomadic ancestors of modern American Indians hiked over a land bridge from Asia to what is now Alaska. Two thousand years ago by the time European Adventures arrived in the Fifteenth Century CE scholars estimated that more than fifty million people already living in the Americas of these some ten million lived in the area that would later become the United States as time passes, migrants send his push south and east, adapting to the climates and vegetation and animal life as they went. Nor to keep track of these diverse groups, anthropologists geographers have divided them into culture areas or rough groupings of contiguous peoples who shared similar habitats characteristics. Most Scholars Break North America excluding present day. Mexico and Central America into ten separate culture areas. The Arctic sub Arctic the northeast southeast planes southwest, the Great Basin California the North, west coast and the plateau. I up the Arctic, culture, area, cold, flat, treeless region, a frozen Detroit of sorts near the Arctic Circle in present. Day, Alaska Canada and Greenland home to the people of the US candidate in Greenland, and the alleyoop people of the Aleutian chain of nearly seventy islands Arkan out from south. Central Alaska over into Russian territory. The New People have formerly been called Eskimos that term now considered a pejorative by many no longer seen as acceptable to use. Both, these large groups of various tribes spoke and continue to speak dialects Senate from what scholars call the ESKIMO. Elliott language family is okay to use the term eskimo in the context of describing the language family. They're. Both of these groups northern tribes, when they have to deep down right at least deep down, be furious with their ancestors for not migrate further south when they decided to settle, I, don't they? What's like a lot of the present-day inhabitants of? Northern Minnesota Upper Peninsula of Michigan, heavy little pissed, just come on this frozen Tundra, this place this wasteland of icebergs in Tundra and permafrost and temperatures, the dropped it damn near sixty below zero winter without wind chill. That's where you wanted to settle down. You fucking kidding me. Sure seals are tasting pretty cool. Could be picking myself a tasty ask Orange Right now walking over to a beach on ladies if you have just kept moving south. Ib Best. Because, it's such an inhospitable landscape. Arctic's population always been comparatively small and scattered. They're less than eight thousand Elliott. People less than a hundred and fifty thousand total in at people, some of these people's ancestors, especially the you at the northern part of the region nomads more nomads, just like the Mongols last week they followed seals polar bears other games. They migrated across the. The Tundra in the southern part of this very northern region, the Alliott were a bit more settled living in small fishing villages along the shore, the early new it. alleyoop people's had a great deal in common, many lived in dome, shaped houses, made of sod or timber, or in.
