The US Senate Has Finally Done Something Meaningful!

"Meaningful. The U.S. Senate has finally done something I approve. This shouldn't have taken so long, but it's finally done. The United States Senate has passed the sunshine protection act by unanimous consent to make daylight savings times permanent. I'm not a fan of daylight savings time. Falling back, springing forward should just remain the same time throughout the entire year. In fact, we should spring forward even more. So that the fall, it's the opposite. I never understood that in the most depressing time of weather, we also made it darker intentionally. Who thought of this thing? Makes zero sense. Now, I know you're gonna say it's Benjamin Franklin. And all this, no way, he was too smart for this. I think it's a Nicole Hannah Jones conspiracy against Benjamin Franklin. There's no way. A 2015 study published in sleep medicine, researchers compared the rate of strokes during the week after daylight saving to the week two weeks after the tweaks before. They found the rate of 8% higher the first two weeks after the shift, and people with cancer were 25% more likely to have a stroke later than the other times of the year. People over 65 were 20% more likely. A 2019 report found a higher risk of heart attack after both time changes, but particularly during daylight savings times. Interruptions to circadian rhythm can also impair focus and judgment. A 2020 study found fatal traffic accidents increased by 6% in the United States during daylight savings time. This shouldn't have been taken so long, but it did, and the U.S. Senate has finally done something useful.

Steve Cortes on What We Know About Stagflation

"For quite some time. This is a shorter segment before we can really dive into it. Tell us what we know about inflation. What is causing it? And then we'll talk about what Americans can do about it, but go from there. Sure. And by the way, I take no pleasure in being correct and being prescient on this topic, but literally since the day of the election November of 2020 and certainly once we got a clearer picture of what Biden was going to do with a democratic Congress into early 2021, I've been trying to ring this alarm bell for all of America that something we have not really dealt with in this country in 40 years since the late 70s and early 1980s that inflation was on the way. I frankly didn't know that it would get this bad this fast, the most recent data we got out was the producer price index. Prices at the wholesale level rose 10% that is the worst ever on record. Of course, producer prices, Charlie, very soon become consumer prices and the consumer price index is also terrible at 7.9%, a 40 year record and rising. I think inflation, in fact, is even higher than that, and I won't bore the audience with all the details of why, but we used to formulate it a different way. We would already have double digit consumer price inflation if we used the old formula, but even using the government's figures, we're still at a 40 year worst record for soaring prices in this country. It's terrible for all of the economy, it's terrible for all Americans, but it's of course most damaging to the people who can least afford it. Middle and lower income folks. And their costs right now for apartment rents, for gasoline, for food. They are all soaring and it's not circumstance. It's not bad luck. It's not the business cycle. It's not Vladimir Putin. It is because of the policy choices of Joe Biden with unfortunately some complicit complicity from some Republican senators who I view as really political collaborators with their participation as well, but this is because of policy failures that we are dealing with an inflationary spiral for the first time in over a generation in this country. Yeah, I think inflation is closer to 25 to

Are We Entering a 'Post-American Era' Under Biden?

"With this clip here, cut 6. We're CNN host says that we're entering a post American era under Biden play cut 6. One of the defining features of the new era is that it is post American. By that, I mean that the pax Americana of the past three decades is over. You can see signs of this everywhere. He's not wrong. Freed zakaria is wrong about a lot. He's not wrong about this. And so this is look, on our program, we are not ideological when it comes to foreign policy. We're certainly ideological on some things. Not on foreign policy, though. We're very ideological on gender policy. Wouldn't you say Connor? And I'm pro life, I'd say. So, but when it comes to foreign policy, we want what's best for America. Realpolitik. And so in certain places, I could see a prudent argument for America to police shipping lanes. I think that's actually a good argument. We're not isolationist. I can't stand people that immediately default towards ideology when it comes to foreign policy. I think that's the worst, actually. If I were to try to say, what would the worst category to be ideological in? It would be foreign policy. And here's why. You're dealing with separate actors incentives, impulses, you're dealing with moving targets, you're dealing with unlikely alliances. So let me give you an example why ideology is so dangerous when it comes to foreign policy. Okay, let's say that we sit in a room and we say under no circumstances, whatsoever will we ever get into an alliance with a communist dictator? Good rule, right? Great rule. I think it looks great on paper. So let's just write that down, right? We're all in a room. We say this is our ideology. We hate communism. Hate dictators. No alliances with communist dictators. And we all say, yeah, that's right. Okay. Do you get an alliance with Joseph Stalin to defeat Hitler? Your rule says you can't do that. Real politics says, what's best for the civilization? Do you ally with an evil to defeat a greater evil? The answer is yes, that was the right decision, by the way.

Was it self released itself release independent which anymore actually. Probably a better path you know. The industry is so kind of messed up. I it just. It's it's hard to kind of nail it down anywhere anymore. At least you've got control over what you do. That's the most important thing to me like. I really don't wanna give creative control.

"Is he him pronouns and i mudd fourth generation japanese american yonsei and then with the organization for about eight years now one of the most notable differences since we first did the story is their name. The program is now called. Food routes eight was formerly known as routes zeh and we changed the name in twenty seventeen along with the name change. We wanted to also reflect some. The programmatic changes that were happening. When we first started the program started as a program community supported agriculture where we basically sourcing produce from local farmers asian american farmers and then distributing produce to subscribers. We started with just like ten subscribers and agreed to at largest was about one hundred fifty. It grew which was great. But i think one of the challenges that we ran into with that program is that it was heavily relying on grant funding to sustain it. It's been difficult to acquire grant funding. You know what we were. Seeing in terms of what people were funding was that food was becoming less of a priority. And you know we were trying to figure out. How do we price this without any grant support. Initially we started out with a bag of five pounds of produce costing seven dollars fifty cents and we had to subsequently increased the price. And i think at the highest it was something like twelve fifty and that was just to try to cover some of the expenses that we were incurring on our end so when we actually kind of ran through the numbers and try to figure out how to we price this without grant funding what it ultimately came out to was roughly twenty five to thirty dollars per bag and that's more than two times. The cost that it originally was and the goal has always been for us to try to bring fresh culturally relevant produce to api communities who lack access and affordability is big component of that. So at that point it just didn't make sense anymore in order to make it. Sustainable it would have priced a lot of folks out of the program and so we had to kind of come back. Reassess re-evaluate the program and we decided to try to move forward with more of a food model and that basically means were aggregating produce from same people seem farmers local growers and then distributing it out to community institutions like hospitals schools nonprofits etc. So instead of working with one hundred fifty clients you have you know. Maybe let's say twenty than our sourcing in bulk and so that's kind of what the model shifted towards and they've continued to work with local farms. We have been working with a couple farmers that we've worked with for many many years and we're working with some new ones as well but some changes you know. I know in the past story. One of the featured farmers was eua yang of fidel farms and unfortunately pedal farms is no longer in business but we have been trying to identify. Continue to work with small farmers like fidel. Now we're working with another monk. Farmer named junoir of dream farms in fresno california and. we're also still working with david. To- of yaobang farms who grows certified organic asian veggies in camarillo california. Not too far away. We have one of the egg farms that we've been working with gone straw arms. They're out in riverside california. And so you know continuing to try to identify small local asian american farmers and other farmers of colored to work with but when the pandemic hit food routes found themselves switching gears again with the pandemic starting in mid-march basically of two thousand twenty. We actually shifted back to focusing a lot of our time at work on emergency food distribution. And so there's been a lot of people who just have had trouble accessing fresh food. It's relatively easier to find candor dry goods from the food bank or other places..

I've always real rotary with paula. We've known each other for years and we've both been making our podcast independently. And i think her work with long distance is superb. You know making long distance has been really a true passion project since the beginning. When you're making something that you know may not have a lot of funding or maybe may not have the same numbers as like a giant network podcast or whatever you have to really love making it something i really learned through. This is that i really do love making the show and in fact i've missed making it like taking this break has been very good but i've just started to like you know. Go back into tape in like go through my notes and honestly start talking about the show again and that's been really really rejuvenating and kind of exciting to be back into it. There are people who still listen to this and are actually excited about it. It may not be like a million good jillian spotify listeners. Or i don't know but there's people out there who are sending good vibes and listening and sharing the podcast and let me see happy. And i'm stoked about that. Honestly part of the reason i made the podcast was when i was getting into radio. And podcasting was pitching stories. But it was very hard to pitch stories especially that are nuanced portrayals of one group with asian america and to me. I feel like there's just so much we can tell you know in terms of our stories and experiences and that goes for like all sorts asian-american groups so one thing i will say like asian americana long distance. We're one of a handful of podcasts. That are dedicated to telling asian-american stories in like a documentary narrative. Way right through podcasting. The fact there's only a handful of us like it makes me a little sad. You know what i mean like. I want there to be more. Because i think more people need to hear this stuff and on the flip side it's challenging and difficult and it's hard to find support but hopefully the more of us there are the more stuff people see whether it's in podcasting or tv or whatever the more support this kind of storytelling.

Since the beginning of last year when we had this episode out yes so it's really fascinating because usually he traveled around the country. Doing his cartooning workshops and kind of talking to kids about not only come telling their own stories through cartoons but about you know him and his background but that stopped during the pandemic for obvious reasons and what he started doing instead was working with the new york city test in trace corpse program so he was actually kind of like helping to fight corona. He's managing a group of contact tracers.

So i had a chat with ada for some updates high ada high quincy so when we last talked last year you had produced peace with caroline for the show about asian american men facial hair. So let's go back and talk about some of the people that were in that episode and see where they're at now. I is justin. Ching the person who had all these opinions about whether he should grow facial hair or not and how that would affect his own dating life or whatever right right. Why didn't get an update on his dating life. Unfortunately but it looks like he's kind of gone off and on his shaved it. He's grown it back from what i can tell. As of february he has the mustache back in the still rocking so good for him and then the next folks talked to the piece where Because this is kind of your main focus right was like how actors are perceived in like how that affects like how they're seeing and what roles they get so it was saga shaking desmond sham. What her saga desmond up to now. They're both like marvel actors now which obviously we predicted. Obviously we were like well. We gotta talk to these guys. Because we know they're going to be marvel stars in the future and they happen to have really cool facial hair so desmond. I think when we finish that episode we had just mentioned that it was recently announced at that time that he was cast in marvel's falcon and the winter soldier. Did he keep his look for show. Yeah still has a facial hair looks good. Looks bad s. I won't spoil the show for anyone but you get some time to talk to like some of the people and gets have long haired facial haired action scenes so that's fun but you said they're both marvel stuff. What a saga doing. Since we talked to saga he's been cast in the new marvel. Miniseries ms marvel which is about kamala. Khan marvel's first muslim character to headline her own comic book.

I i knew released. My first england january twenty dedicated to my family and friends body. Fis in victoria and the bush is lost. Ya and yeah. Just just been learning i it. In a few music business courses being working out how this whole industry works but really following my passion and sharing some of the music that really my life through some of my life experiences just giving back to anyone else that might relate to the music and and get them healing through as well. Did you start writing or playing music and writing songs as a as a younger girl when this start for you. Yeah i I was told when i was loved rushing and my sister. My oldest is nine out of the maze. Getting any lessons one day and i i remember seeing it and telling my parents that i wanted to do that and My parents were pastas grip around the church. So lots and lots of music in the house and every weekend it was something. That i just intuitively route to At writing songs. That did a lot of but i did it in private. I never shared that with anyone. Unlike my diary man acres of me when did when did you finally decide to open your musical diary up and share it with folks that really only happens in november of nine thousand nine thousand nine hundred and it took me a long time and i had to deal with a lot of emotional insecurities and fees but at some point it was kind of like the chains came off and i just had a compulsion like now is the time to share they songs in this music with other people. I didn't know what was coming. I had no know. No one knew what was the meaning. Plenty but when. I look at it the songs that i write over the last twenty years as songs that helped me through some of the darkest and hottest times of my life. They're very encouraging lifesaving songs and couldn't when everything started happening you know everything happens for the right right reasons in the right time but it was interesting to see everyone around me going through such hardship in twenty twenty. It was beautiful to be able to be free to be sharing these songs with people. Update had you been sharing them any other way privately with friends and family. Was this just kind of surprised. I'm a musician. And here's some of my songs are playing all the long island along and like there was one time when i gave the close in the evening. One song every now. I'm out of my little nasty. Behold and in shali air with someone I joined the band ten years ago in melbourne where we started writing new songs together. And i think. There's a lot of experiences where i've had opportunities to share little fits and aces and i have been encourage. I still have to deal with a lot of personal development and emotional intelligence. Before i was really ready to be really that opening that boehner which is what it takes to be an artist very vulnerable experiencing thing to do So yeah like little little little bit to the lowly gathering a little bit more competent different experiences and Yeah finally got to where we are today. So you've been playing with other folks along the way you mentioned playing in a band so this is not the first time you've performed publicly. Is that correct. Yeah the bands that i was working with with cousins of mine that had abandoned that when we singer and we jamming a little bit around. I'm very safe space. They was stupid urging. I think that's where. I got my confident that actually thing whereas full that didn't believe that i had avoid. That was any good answer that helped him. We actually rehearsed songs got a year.

Comfort Food, From Mississippi To San Francisco

"As we learned last time growing up in different regions of the. Us can make you long for the specific adaptations and versions of the dishes. That your family or your community made in the case of our next story. It can also mean. You develop a love for more conveniently packaged version of those cultural foods. I don't think i would ever get tired of talking about. That's amy will. Bobo harvey one. I'm in innuendo abo-. I am a creative technologist and i'm indonesia american and i am number one in domi fan. I live in san francisco right now. Which is really different than where i grew up which was the live nowhere mississippi in little town along the river with a population of about twenty thousand and i lived there from when i was nine years olds to when i went to college. Moving there at such a young age wasn't an easy adjustment for amy. I remember moving to the south as a nine year old and it was pretty different from where i was moving from colorado and meeting of being like this grumpy nine year old like having to have left all of my elementary school friends like move to a new environment in the middle of the school year but then having southern food for the first time and being like okay. Yeah i guess we can live here. They have fried catfish and biscuits and gravy. So it warms. My heart towards the south to indonesian foods too as far as eating indonesian foods. I grew up eating like soto. I am a soup that my mom would make me whenever i was sick or buckman agoo which is fried corners. There are a lot of overlaps. I think between southern food indonesian food like they use of peanut oil alive similar veggies. Green beans corn okra. And i think because of the amount of fried stuff just like it tasting so like hardy and comforting put of all those foods. Amy had into me was a highlight. I asked her to tell me about indo. Mian why she loved it so much. How can i describe perfection I'll i'll try so injury is an instant noodle packet. That's meant to be eaten dry. Unlike a lot of other suit based instant noodles and then the taste is post to kind of emulate. Megan rang which is like the indonesian fried noodle dish. And there's just like something so special about the taste like it's so many different flavors so when you're making indo me you drain the noodles and then it comes with like Three or four different spice packets. There's a packet of oil. That's supposed to emulate like the oil that you would fry but noodles. There's also a spice packet of chili powder than there is the packet of boo boo. Which is like the indonesian word for. Spice the bulk of the flavoring of indo me is in the boo packet and then catch up my niece which is in an asian sweet so i saw us at the very end. There's like a little packet of fried onion bids that you can put on the very top so before we moved to mississippi we had an asian grocery store that did sell into me. And so i grew up thinking of that as the only instant noodle like i didn't know that other types of instant noodles existed and i really liked them but i thought of them as kind of like normal that fault and then moving to mississippi where into music available. We had top roman for the first time. But we made it like indo. Mimi gaurang life where he made it dry and then just like all the spice packets dry top of the noodles. We were like what is this. This is so strange. We've never had this kind of instant noodle before like all the flavors are often because like to eat talk on but yeah it made me realize like wait into me isn't the default instant noodle it's like special in hard to get which made me treasurer at even

They had said this was back before the holidays cool. We've got a bunch of one hundred percent. Sure we need to get our ducks in a row because there are fairly new. Label project And and i said yeah january twenty. I would've open for hadn't heard back and thought ok. Maybe we didn't make the cutter if you got enough else going on and so i was like cool. I'm just gonna go for it and self released as i planned. Put put in the work and so it was a surprise to hear all of a sudden. They're like pappy age up. The reverend huge validation and i admire most of those guys so much musicians could be really fun to be a little bit of part of crew Yeah that's awesome so in a in a perfect world we're all going to get to get back out and and play and enjoy music soon. What does it look like If you can do that to take this out to your audience how. How do you foresee being able to Play out with this new music. It's gonna be fun. I'm psyched about it it will. It won't always be with the full bad as recorded because i've got Drums bass electric guitar electric banjo pam three oregon And the guy who plays that really insists on playing full hamid instead of cues. If you've been out keep word if you possibly can imagine no. It's amazing and the thing you know it's way older than i am. And it's got you know like an eight foot section that's just wires knobs and tube back and it literally has caught fire while he was played on stage or the great antique the founded unbeatable so full band. Yeah i think. I'm open for if i can put together and one or two gigs. Everyone a month with the full band. That'd be awesome. But in terms of being representing the album and touring these songs of this music I'm planning to go for it as much as i possibly can come from the end of code restrictions so you'd like to get out of the state and in tour down through the us. Yeah i would you know i. I did that like mentioned earlier with sort of one of the first bands with that. It's been mostly in statement ad. I have toured regionally a little bit But part of what twenty twenty one represents for me is a switch a little bit further away from that day job. I started teaching banjo. Also with the local community music. that's cool And so. I am hoping that i can take some some small tours down to the further down the east coast or or even all across the country if it's possible. Yeah there's a lot. There are a lot of logistics involved in a wonderful family here in a little little farmstead styled life so it's not necessarily the easiest that's definitely part of my hope. Yeah yeah well. That's that's great the Again the album is many mountains. And the new label Tell us that again astrology as records and where will it be available through them or do you have it on your on the social media outlets as well. Yep it's all over right now.

Alex Trebek, long-running 'Jeopardy' host, dead at 80

"And I get the a P alert that Alex Trebek had passed away. Hey, lost his fight against cancer. And what a life though I watched the 2020 special lesson, Did you? How was it? Yes. Oh, so good. Michael Strahan interviewed him recently. And he was already getting up on his roof and like snow, blowing the leaves off and stuff. I mean, he was still very active. He hosted his last jeopardy game just less than two weeks ago. Oh, my goodness. Yes, it is working, but I didn't realize this about him. And maybe this was common knowledge. Just how charitable he waas how much he gave back and how he decided to write a book because he wanted that advance money to give to the charity Is he already supported and new Cherries? That kind of came into his consciousness and he was just A very generous man and to hear the stories about that was pretty cool. All right. Here's a little bit of that interview Lex from last night's 2020. Alex talking about charity and laughter. What do you want? Your legacy to be? A nice man helped people through hiss charity work. Was kind to everybody encounter, you know, Enjoy life. Make somebody laugh. I believe laughter is one of the greatest cures. That we can possibly have. It's right up there with prayer. Believe me, it is. I think it really is. You know, they're he's a even a 36 years. He's 36 years. What's crazy? I mean, even though he's Canadian, you know Alex. Alex is one of those pop culture icons. You know, he really is. He's one of those he's He's in the fabric of Americana. I mean, your other than maybe prices right and well, I think there's a trifecta there. When you look at game shows You in jeopardy is is just classic American culture and and the success of that show, I think can be summed up by the format. And host. I think jeopardy is Alex Trebek and Alex Trebek is jeopardy and it's going to be very interesting to see what the next chapter of that show was like. Um Because you know the old saying and and Shobha everybody's replaceable but showing the line but my goodness that's going to be those are big shoes to fill. I would not write down. I would not want to be The producers of that show. It's crazy. Um, speaking of the show, Lex, I know you saw this on 2020. Here's the story of him getting the job on jeopardy. This is you know. Ah Ah, This is interesting. What brought Alex Trebek to America that phone call? Alex got a call from Alan Thicke, another Canadian from Northern Ontario, well known from growing pains. Of course, he was developing a game show for NBC called Wizard of Odds. Wizard of Odds. And when it came time for him to think of a host, he merely thought of Alex Trebek. I had accumulated 16 weeks of leave at the CBC and I took a leave of absence. Ah, holiday with pay and went in audition for a show Alex audition for the job and got it. And in 1973, he moved to California to host Wizard of Odds Now here's Wiley. I first met Alex in 1973. You just knew right away. He was smart. This is a former executive producer of Jeopardy in control. He has an amazing capacity. Take it all in. I started with Wizard of Odds I did that three year they can't riding high replaced it on a Monday with so called high rollers with Alec. It was cancelled and replaced by a show called Battle stars. They kept lately for Layla, but they can't keep the host. That's funny. Yeah. And then eventually they decided to bring back jeopardy and, ah And and Alex got the job on DH then, like I said, became just a sliver of pop culture and you know that you've made in pop culture when you're spoofed on SNL. And you know, they reference that last night on the special mean he was everywhere. Here's a here's a little bit of Alex's influence on pop culture enjoyed stepping out from behind the podium. There were women here in Jeopardy. You're feeling very sleepy. Oh, I'm sorry, Peter. We were looking for King Louis. The 11th. This automotive tool is used to tighten bolts. And let's just go from soup to nuts. He has been in one of the greatest shows of all time. The Simpsons and he has made an appearance in one of the worst shows of all time. Baywatch. Did you see Who you just rescue Hey, Alex, Meet Alex. Alex Trebek from jeopardy! I don't believe this. And of course, there are the unforgettable Saturday Night Live parodies of Celebrity Jeopardy in which will Ferrell channels a deadpan Trebek Aziz mercilessly taunted by Darrell Hammond As Sean Connery. We meet again, you longer headed, tickle brained pump you Enough people often ask me. How did you feel about Sean Connery on? Have you ever met him in person? I said no, I haven't. But if I ever meet him, I'm going to get one of these. It's time for final jeopardy. And so this Wass never be afraid of poking fun at yourself self deprecating humor. Is worth its weight in gold.

He had no unspecified illness was in Waco, Texas. He's a Texas native. In fact, he burst onto the scene in 1973, a debut album entitled Old Five and Dime. Er's Like Me. I was known for contributing the Outlaw country movement. Who's friends with Willie once our shaver, as you said he called him the greatest living songwriter. His songs recorded by the likes of Johnny Cash. Elvis, Kris Kristofferson, Jerry Lee Lewis.

It's a pretty happy day reunion of cast members, including Ron Howard, Henry Winkler, Marion Ross and more, and the whole thing will benefit the Democratic Party of Wisconsin as the show was set in Milwaukee change you have to, but not everyone's onboard. Scott Baio, who played Chachi on the show, is a supporter of President Trump. He responded to Ron Howard's tweet about the reunion, saying it's a shame to use classic shows like Happy Days about Americana to promote an anti America. In socialist so safe to say he won't be at the

Some of Edward Hopper’s Earliest Paintings Are Actually Copies He Made From a How-To Art Magazine

"Zoom in art history doctoral student of the court hauled institute in London has just caused quite a stir in the art world. was. Shadwick has discovered that at least three of Edward Hopper's early oil paintings are copies of other artists work. Two. Of them come from a magazine for amateur artists that was published before hopper's paintings of the same scenes and a third appears to be copied from Victorian painted porcelain plaque. Painting by Bruce Crane that appeared in the magazine, the art interchange in eighteen ninety called a winter sunset is nearly identical to. Eighteen Ninety, seven old ice pond at Nyack. A painting that also appeared in the art interchange in eighteen eighty, six called ships by Edward Moran is a near identical match to Edward Hopper's ships from eighteen, ninety eight. And the Victorian Porcelain Plaque based on an unidentified painting I think needs a little bit more verification but it does look just like hoppers 1897 church landscape. You can see all of these side by side in the New York Times article linked in the show notes. But a couple of notes on this Carter, foster hopper expert and director at the Blanton Museum of art in Texas notes that it's not at all unusual for artists of the time to have gotten their start by copying other works it was part of the learning process. But the problem is that much of the myth of hopper that he leaned into a bit while he was alive was that he had a preternatural talents especially evident in his early oil paintings that he created all on his own quoting the New York Times for Kim Canetti curator of drawings and prints at the Whitney. Museum. In New York where she is. At. Work on a big hopper, show the copying that Mr Shannon with revealed has more important repercussions. It cuts straight through the widely-held perception of hopper as an American. Original. She said as an artist whose innate genius allowed him to emerge on the scene without a debt to others. The only real influence I've ever had was myself. He wants claimed and quotes. And importantly, hoppers version of old ice pond nyack is currently being sold by an art gallery for between three hundred and four hundred thousand dollars. Will these revelations change anything about that price points and other sales of his early works? Showed wakes discovery is still in the process of being compiled and peer reviewed but perhaps, the market and hoppers legacy will shift somewhat in the near future. You know hopper's art has become a symbol of everyday life in mid century America his paintings brought to life the predominant thoughts and feelings of the time quoting again from the New York Times critics and scholars have always been intrigued by awkwardness that hopper allowed himself in many of his classic paintings sees that looked more painted than liquid in his famous groundswell, the Awkward Anatomy of his female nude in morning in the city or the stony faces of the diners in nighthawks. Now that we know that hopper was never a painting prodigy we can think of his later paintings as deliberately revisiting the limitations of his adolescence and finding virtue and power there. There's a classic move in American. Culture to see the unschooled in Homespun as more authentic and especially as more authentically American than the sophist stories of those decadent old Europeans end quote. And yet this is something I think about sometimes you know oddly for a nation. So deeply entrenched in its origins in the idea of the Protestant work ethic does seem to be this pervasive narrative throughout the centuries in. United. States that someone who is just miraculously gifted born perfect in a certain field or talent without help or instruction from anyone else is so much better. So much more deserving of being glorified than someone who Had to work hard at it who trained in grew over time maybe made some mistakes along the way not only does that do a disservice to the true fact that many people do have to work hard to perfect skills and talents and lead many to give up if they think they're not perfect at their first shot, but it erases the many people who help someone hone their craft and make it to where they are. Leads us to only praising leaders, celebrities, Star athletes, people in the spotlight and forgetting all about the people, the coaches, the teachers, the drivers, the medics, the operations, managers, the custodial workers, the domestic workers, the caregivers. Who Make someone's life like that possible I don't think there is anything at all wrong with Edward Hopper copying other artists as he learned his craft. But I do think it speaks volumes that he chose to or felt he had to particularly as he became this emblem of Americana Incarnate, hide that he had had any type of early instruction or influence, and thereby taking credit over these other artists instead of bringing them into the fold with him the New York Times mentions that part of it was so revolutionary and captivating about hoppers work was his depiction of average everyday life in America and they conclude I. Agree quotes. If. Hopper claimed to be an absolute original uninfluenced by others, his greatest paintings work hard to convey a different image of their maker. Their studied awkwardness asks us to imagine him as someone who might indeed have started his career copying someone else as just your average American working hard to make good end quote.

Apple stock continues to drop

"We're entering the final stretch of the year in here we all with the five hundred virtually flaps for the year. So far guy in various shows we've talked about various iterations of apple being the king of the market apple being the tell the market appleby and the barometer. Here we are with apple down about fourteen percent. In. The past month. So what does that? Tell you. And I go back to some Steve set a week or so ago that you know he -ticipant at trading down to this or that ninety, five, ninety, six level and I happen to agree with them. One of three that we saw on Monday was a twenty five percent move from peak to trough. But historically, and there is history for this the sell offs of magnitude Annapolis. You've seen anywhere from thirty two to thirty, eight percent and I think you know that ninety five level probably put you right there on the screw so. What it tells me is as much as everybody you know I understand the reason you wanna own apple you just want to close your eyes their here's a stock that's given you many opportunities over the last decade. To get in at meaningfully lower levels than the prior all time high, and in recent past I, mean within the last two years a move from two twenty five, which was at the time it all time high one fifty and a straight line, and then recently I know this is pre split but the move from three twenty, five down to two forty and a straight line. So the stocks given you those opportunities and quite frankly we're on the precipice of exactly that again mill. You know you could two guys point that hundred day moving average is now ninety seven and apple, and you can to a guy just said before you can close your eyes and you've been rewarded with that in the stock for me I think those days are gone. And you'd want dip by as you said before, this is the ultimate buyers barometer. Now you have an upward moving two hundred day it's at eighty, four nine. I'm gone past the ultimate. We really get the sell off that I think we're going to get. That's the level Melissa that's going to be tested in apple and just think about how many people will get gutted in their idea, their brain, their emotions if apple traits to mid eighties that will be terrible for the overall market. Sentiment is is key here Karen especially when you're talking about a lot of retail investors to had gone into the markets in general gone into apple specifically wrote it all the way up and here we are I'm wondering if you think apple is as important a barometer for the market or if there's maybe something else on your screen whether it be a stock you own or not. That is a good tell for you on the market's direction. I think apple is still pretty good on the market's direction. I think long long all the way to the top still long probably by more trades down. If turns on further I. think it still is such an Americana Company and I think that the Nasdaq has obviously moved market up and it's now move the market down I. Still Think it's central to our all of our sentiments very widely owned retail stock as well. So I do think apple is still barometer but I think today I think it was a guy talking early that this fiscal. Floor not being there I think is increasingly important Kudos to Brian Kelly for calling when it really I felt it was very very likely to happen now likely. Yeah. I mean that seems to be out of the market at this

Inland West Coast Roadtrips

"If, you're ready for a memorable road trip where there's more to explore the freeway rest stops Chandler O'Leary wants to take you up the US west coast. She joined us a few months ago with tips for driving the Pacific. Coast highway from San Diego to big Sur, the redwoods and the Pacific northwest rainforest. She's back to recommend a few of the inland highlights from the desert playground palm springs through the orchards. California's Central Valley, old western Sacramento, and all the way up to my home turf around Seattle the detailed in her book the Best Post, a road trip Alice Chandler welcome back. Thank you for having me. So we talked about the coastal route before now we're GonNa talk about the inland. Route make a case for not taking the coastal route because I would think everybody wants to go up the coast, but you make the inland sound pretty good. I feel like if you like your vintage, Americana this the road trip for you and yeah, you're not gonna see the coasts until you get all the way up to Washington but if you're really into things like palm springs and mid, century architecture old neon signs, a roadside attractions, you're going to get tons of that on this route. I love roadside attractions, publicity stunts from fifty of your. What are few of those that come to mind because I just think they're so funky. The giant oranges that used to be Oliver California and there's a couple of them left and they were they to be drink stands for you know when you were thirsty on the road, you get fresh California orange juice right and they're still a couple of them left along old either farm. There's farm country all the way along the way absolutely all three states. So we're going sixteen hundred miles and apparently it's the old isn't isn't like the highway ninety nine is of it is yeah and in California highway. Ninety nine mostly is still intact and it's even a freeway in some places, but once you get into Oregon and Washington because of the mountains, it starts getting a little bit tricky kind of pick. Cherry pick sections of the old road and then connect with I five. Yes. It's just like route sixty six how it's kind of been swallowed up by interstate in places like five is it's sort of the enemy on the other hand. It's practical because he gets you from A to B in a hurry. Yeah. What's your philosophy you're gonna go from going basically from San Diego to Bellingham Right What's your philosophy on the balance between I five in the old roads I think you wanna use I five when you WanNa, make good time and take the old rose if you wanna have a good time. That's kind of how I look at it good time or have a good time. That's good. So let's talk about California first of all New Mexico on one side of the border and collection collects. It collects co is on the or is on the California side and Mexico on the Mexico side. So that's where a route starts are these kind of sister towns in away or are unfortunately there's a big old wall separate him so you Or now you have to go through the big international the big national checkpoint because I did that between San Diego and Tijuana was easy just walk across I think right now that's not the same as it used to be, but it may be again I mean who who knows what we're starting in Calexico then What's the flavor of collects goes? That's just a springboard or anything to do there. It's a sleepy small town and but it's kind of you kind of get the flavor of where you're starting and you're going to start out in the low desert. You're below sea level here that's below civil come into palm springs. A waste. It is palm springs to us. Palm Springs is is kind of Wacky. It got big in the nineteen fifties. So there's a lot of great mid century architecture there, but it's very glamorous. It's very glitzy. There's a lot of designers their fashion show was movie stars that doesn't retirement communities to. snowbirds it's kind of this weird mix of college spring breakers and snowbirds. Okay. So you put that in your checklist and then some I know in your book, you talk about a lot of worthy detours you know in one of your favorites would be Joshua Tree National Park. Yes. Joshua tree is stunning and Joshua tree trees actually the high desert. So it's above palm springs at altitude. So it has a completely different desert climate different plants, different animals. So Joshua Tree is one of these cartoon book yeah. Of Justice Joshua Tree is these classic kind of quintessential cactus Yes. Yes. So what do you do in Joshua Tree National Park Jessica cactus there's a great hikes. There's actually only those cactus in one small part of the park is an enormous park. So there's different bombs great rock formations they are beautiful scenery and

"The way we speak in the words we use are shaped by so many things, and that includes the family friends culture and language we grow up around for me growing up bilingual in. Thai.

To encourage someone or disapproving deny when you're being wasteful or even an exclamation of when you drop something or. To get someone's attention and these phrases include ones in English to sings like longtime. No see and no-can-do Asian American or rooted in the language of Nineteenth Century Chinese American immigrants. These words can serve lifeline to the boys of our cultural and linguistic heritage.
