Quantum Machine Learning: The Next Frontier with Iordanis Kerenidis

"All right everyone I am on the line with Max Welling Max is Vice President of technologies. At qualcomm, Technologies Netherlands and a full professor at the University of Amsterdam. Max was a guest of the podcasts just about a little over a year ago in May of last year where we talked about gauge Equa variant CNN's generative models and the future of ai and I am super excited to welcome you back to the show. To catch up on what you've been up to and dig into some really interesting topics. Hi, Sam. Thank you for having me again on the show absolutely I I'm really looking forward to our conversation You may know this, but last year's podcast that that we did was the second most popular show of the year. So does the the second most downloaded show for the the podcasts and I am sure this one will be just as hot So looking forward into it before we jump into our topics which include topics like neuro. Federated Learning graph they're all networks. Give us an update on what you've been up to at qualcomm and the you know the current focus of your research at the university. Yeah. So I think many of the topics that we talked about last year are still You know hotly pursued at the university and at Qualcomm So we're doing a lot of generative modelling. where we look at, you know, how can we build models that can generate high dimensional data like images and audio in a very realistic way trained completely unsupervised from from data we are also looking at still at in variances and said of symmetry in Dade, in how we can embed those into these models. and in particular, also looking at graph neural networks with applications now, also to dry molecules. So we've started the project where we try to predict the properties of molecules and can be very naturally model with graph neural net because you know molecule is a little bit like a graph and we've made these models also symmetric two rotations in in Three D. space if I take a molecule and I rotated around, then sit of the internal representations of that narrow network need to transform in a coherent way under these rotations and since it's the graph near on that, it's also it's also symmetric under permutations of the nose. and so all of these symmetry is are built into the neural network and being trying to predict properties for drugs, for instance, and in that in the context of you know if we can find something that is good against a go of it. but we've also looked at efficient learning Trent training networks. So very limited precision is mostly worked as being done at qualcomm because of crispy wanted to run our phones an innocent of lowest the lowest amount of energy and so to to have the highest accuracy but using the least amount of power possible. and so we've been a lot of research and trying to make these. sort of complex neural network computations, very low precision, and as an additional sit of new tracking their revolt have been looking at quantum computation now, and in multiple ways, the first of all quantum chips might be around a corner can we train get can be designed good neural networks that would. Run on quantum chips but also just look at the mathematics off these of of quantum mechanics and see if that quantum of the mathematics is is sort of a new language even for classical neural networks. So yeah, there's there's a lot of things happening and then and then there's of course it neural augmentation that we will be talking about We have been applying these ideas to different application areas in Martyrs Communication also at the university, but also on. Princeton's to to my Mo- detection and also to era correction decoding and also to to channel estimation. Awesome. Awesome. Interesting to hear you bring up quantum and quantum machine learning You know that's something. We can maybe spend a few minutes on a curious on your your overall take I've been trying to myself to get a sense for whether I. Think it's worthy of all the hype it's getting in how far away it is and how relevant it is machine learning and they I what what's your take on it? Yeah. They could easily spend an hour on this. I'm very, very excited about this stuff. So. So for me at this point it is mostly intellectually interesting and I have a physics background. So my my supervisor of US GARAGE TOFU IS A. Nobel, prize onset sort of standard model quantum, a standard model quantum mechanics, and he has a very particular and interesting view on quantum mechanics, which is very controversial. I would say but and and and if you is that, in fact there is A. World there, which is not logical where the world is just in classical state at the very, very small small was level. We don't know what that state is or what the e even how to describe it, and so the mathematics to describe that sort of. Classical Senator Automata is happens to be quantum mechanics. A quantum mechanics is a mathematical tool like complex analysis is a mathematical to to solve. Partial differential equations, ordinary different differential

"New life and moved to Amsterdam which is. Booming fucking town at this point. There's not information about this murder, so let me tell you about Amsterdam. In the seventeenth century, I need to hear. Rate. I should've known about this beforehand and. The Seventeenth Century Amsterdam Golden Age Karen. I think now is I mean right barking tourists in the year sixteen hundred. Amsterdam emerges as one of the world's most important centers of trade. Everyone you. Went to school here. They're like yeah. I did this report in sixth grade. You're fucking copying my report. With Trade Karen obviously came wealth and a blossoming arts and science. I was fucking scrounging. What was their main export chrome? Also became a vibrant cultural hub and one of three amsterdamers was an immigrant turns out. Wow, the sephardic Jews were fleeing persecution in Spain and Portugal. You know yes over there, so you're minority was real right shit? I should have bought. It was from the Sixteen Fifty S. Okay. Whatever and then. He's not around the time cheeses invented. wrote again with trade came wealth and lost your. And then she drew a picture of downtown. I'm sturdy. You used to do in book reports to fill up a whole page. You'd be like here's Abe Lincoln's house pretty sure. They don't do that, we'd. Sorry? They're like we like school. Okay, yeah. Also listen ships. shed. For Basements. Twenty. Ships to. This land. We've basically accidentally started podcast now we have to travel the world. Giving book reports just cities about their own cities. College, dropouts. This is ridiculous. You bought a ticket for you. From yesterday. That'd be cool. It's like a second high kicked in and we're just like. Tell me about ships. Imports exports keeping teeth with this microphone. Okay, but then spices spices happens. GOODS URA leading financial centre. Then I write about something that interests me. Which is the bubonic plague? The. Bubonic Plague fucking comes around. And from sixteen, Sixty, three to sixteen, sixty, six, more than ten percent of the population died of play. Buchan Fund right. By sixteen seventy, no fewer than two hundred twenty people lived in the city is fucking crowded. They build more of it. You guys know the story. But back to sixteen sixty four. Our our Gal. elsia is eighteen years old. She comes to Amsterdam. She's like I. Want to live here. She finds a place to live. She rents a room in the land with a landlord lady. That's so like independent for Gal. The sixty nine hundred now I wonder what she was like. She wants to be a made, so she starts looking for a job to get to be made, but within two weeks she can't find a job. She is running out of money. She can't pay rent. and. Let's see. She lived on the. Damn Rak. Dom Rock thank you. Guys then you'll know that it's an avenue and partially. Canal, center. Yes yes, the. Central and the Northern Square on the cell. And she looks for a job. Can't find here. There's a great McDonald's over there. Own that I wrote it up. Poor people back then in Amsterdam. What were they like? They did assist of civic poor relief and Charles institutions well. That's nice. Yeah, so the old in the insane. And orphans were supported whatever so emotionally. Yeah, keep it up, guys. You'll get there someday. Give up! Don't drop out of college. So She Kevin Job landladies fucking pissed about it one morning. She wakes up in his like pay me rent and. I can't and the landlady grabs a fucking broom and starts hitting her with. Pay Me Rent. Elsa does with any fucking. Normal person does and sees a fucking accessing there and picks it up. Yeah Because they're just been a big act shipment that morning. One of the many axes imported from Canada and even the landlady's right else is like no I can and hits her with backs. I think it was a couple of times. It's hard. And and she falls down the flight of stairs into the cellar, and she lays their dead shit. Meanwhile the neighbors because it seems like you just every wall is shared and the city. Are like that sounded bad, so they they come over. was there brew Max Fight in here just a second ago because we are positive, I heard a distinct sounds of a broom. Slash through. Max Fights. Stairs, someone brought a brim. Do An accident. Yes Thank you. Thank you? Bring up to an act. It's true though. But how okay so she answers the door to the neighbors in covered in blood, and they're like something's going on. She runs out to try to run away and they go in and discover the body I. think they must chase after her or something because she jumps into one of the canals. I, would too. You know, but you can't swim, so I would not. so the bystanders help her out of the water, and they bring before the city magistrates when questioned, though she eventually confesses to the murder of her landlady. She's taking to try out. She's found guilty and sentenced to death shit. That was fast.

"How is going to impact the severity of the storm and the timing of all that back to the weather Center meteorologist Todd Glickman Tuck All right, Wayne. Let's see about 2.5 hours ago, The center of the storm was 300 miles south southwest of New York City and moving to the Northeast. About 33 miles an hour. So you do the arithmetic? And you see at the center of the storm should pass right by the latitude of New York City mid to late afternoon. Once it goes by the worst of this storm is going to be over, but between now and then, is when the biggest hazards and impacts will be felt. So as we mentioned a couple of minutes ago, there's a tornado watch in effect until four o'clock and there could be some tornado activity here and there. I don't think it's going to be widespread. This is not the kind of massive tornado that you see in the Midwest with severe thunderstorms. A fairly small but they moved very quickly and they could do some damage in just a very brief period of time. So if a warning is issued for your community, that's when you really have to take cover. Flash flood Watch until six o'clock tomorrow morning. And the inundation of rain is likely to occur from the city. North and west will be general amounts in the 34 inch range, perhaps up to six inches in places and that is going to cause flash flooding very, very quickly. In situations like this, the greatest hazard is likely to be from water coming down from the sky. And not from a storm surge like we had from Sandy what? Eight years ago when lower Manhattan was inundated in the subway tunnels were flooded so forth. That's not gonna happen. This time. The big flooding impact is going to be over land, especially central northern New Jersey, up into a southern New York state in southwestern Connecticut. It's all going to be over with by this evening, and then tomorrow the next couple days whether it's going to be much better love more details coming up traffic and weather together Just a couple minutes. Wait and Todd, I'm watching the pinwheel spin of this tropical storm and I concede e On the radar. That line that is very closely defined, clearly defined where red storms are popping up as it swirls into South Jersey is easy to see how a twister would have touched down in stratosphere, which is it's been reported in the past half hour. And it's also something that the mayor of New York City said in his briefing moments ago. He's very concerned about. Apparently he witnessed one a few years ago in Brooklyn, and he's very concerned about this watch for the city and the possibility that there could be a warning later on. Should they appear in New Jersey Governor Murphy's briefing. Here's what he said He's worried about the power going up. Depending on the scenario, you could have averages. I think Joe measured in the hundreds of thousands, Joe, his department of Public Utilities spokesman there, Governor Murphy says drivers Do not be on the road unless you absolutely have to. All officers are closed. Statewide, non essential government workers are being told to stay home today. Sean Adams. We're looking at the harbour from Wall Street all the way to Catherine slept by the Brooklyn Bridge and says Here. Seeing massive tubes set up to block flooding. New York originally was New Amsterdam. It seems the big Apple has taken a page from the Dutch who constantly managed flooding. Historic South Street Seaport has been fortified with.

"Most difficult patients they've ever treat. Oh, can you? Can you imagine a mental? That's bad. It's not at starbucks. And then so that's like out patient treatment apparently, but then for a job for business humans, wife, start up pet sitting business. Problems with because remember his history with ducks and puppies. Fun Dead Frogs. Davidson Demon so within six months as we might have all guest. Problems, begin to arise in the home will start drinking and heavily, and then pretty soon his wife takes her gathers up her five children and get the fuck out, so that's when he begins to regularly higher sex workers in his home. In November of nineteen ninety-three, the body of twenty-three-year-old Michelle fat toll is found in a ditch near the village of inimitable. Got Kick going. They've just abandoned us. Asked you to do something. You don't even know what I'm saying. It's that bad. Really. I'm so mad at you right? E.. N. U. M. A.. T. I l.. That doesn't exist. In A. Doesn't matter anymore. In a village. The body of a twenty three year old sex worker is found in a ditch and she's been strangled to death. And then fourteen months later January twenty, one, thousand, nine, hundred, five, the body of thirty one year old sex worker name on a lease reindeers is found. In, the canal near up and get them. Oh I'm GONNA move here. I'm gonNA teach English classes. Okay later that same year that tore show of a twenty four year old sex worker Antoinette is found. In wind shooter. And then later on other body, parts of hers are found in a Duffel bag so basically just. Dead Sex workers just start showing over and over less than two years after that the body of nineteen year old sex worker named Shirley hair jurors is found, and then when they find her body, the find out that her friend Yolanda Meyer is also missing. So then about three years after Shirley's bodies discovered on July seventeenth two thousand one. The body of thirty four year olds Scott Sasha. Schenker is found in a canal police discover that William Vaunt. Is a regular customer of hers, and of course then he becomes prime suspect when her clothes are found several months later in the same canal near his house in a plastic bag weighted down with stones. That's when they arrest him so why? Why don't name on them? So. Four months after they find her personal items on November. Twelve thousand one William Van I is arrested on suspicion of murder. He confesses to killing. Michelle a toll on a leash. Randy and Soska Schenker. Police also suspect him of two other unsolved murders, Antoinette bont and you'll Meyer but he does not confess to those crimes. So Excavate the ground all around his house but they don't find anything. They think they're going to find missing bodies, but they don't find anything and they can't find any hard evidence linking him to those two crimes. But between his release, his first release in nineteen, ninety and his second arrest, there were eight sex workers and several other young women murdered in and around the area where he lived. But why wouldn't he confessed all of them I? Don't know I can suck in Asshole I. Haven't maybe he didn't do that scary. What's scary is that maybe there were like four fucking murderers? Always it's always a possibility definitely. So on November, seventh, two, thousand two, he's tried convicted and sentenced to life in prison for the murder of Michelle cottle unleashed rangers and Saskia Schenker. He tries to appeal the supreme. Court of the Netherlands is like. Go Fuck yourself forever. All of his request for clemency are denied. They're just like no, we we. We did it wrong the first time. Over. His lawyer go ahead. Sorry. That was two thousand to. His lawyer reads his statement and it says quote I killed those women. It's terrible I did not want that it happened to me. Dude No. I did not think of it before, and it's still a mystery to me. That has caused me to what has caused me to act like that. I am not a monster disagree. I did not want all this to to say. You are Saris easy, but that is not what it is meant to be i. am sorry I wish I could undo it even if it would be at the expense of mild life sound great. And as of twenty thirteen, you'll law to Myers. Body has not found. That's the most recent I was doing that thing? Have you done the thing where you look article on? Google and you hit Google translate. Yes, and then the article comes up in the most insane English that you're just like. What is this a fairy tale some kind I'm? Trying to read these stories. Yes, but from what I could and that is like five years ago, so there might be an update since, but her body has not been found from the last thing, I could find on Google, and although it was never proven that will almost responsible for her disappearance pug publicly believed that he killed both Shirley hijackers and Yolanda Meyer. So that's what everyone around counting and that is Willem van eyck everybody. Oh my God. Job. That there are these like huge murderers and serial killers and. The world and I've never heard of them every every story we've done here on our trip is like what the fuck. This would have been I should have known about this. No. That's okay. Okay. I WANNA. Say this name, right? Good fucking luck. I am doing the story of. The murderer elsia Christiane 's. They've never heard of that. I, said it wrong. It could be my fault, elsia. That's her name. Okay, so elsia Christiane Christians was born in sixteen, forty, six in Denmark. A while ago while this is an Oldie nowhere, yeah, this is classic. It's. You know. From the old time. You. One of these. All right a lot on the podcast. You can't see. When we talk about back in the day, it's usually a hitchhiking motion. Okay born in sixteen forty six. There's not a it known about her life before because it's fucking old. You didn't undo some scrolls. Try to get some information off and from what it sounds like. She's just a normal human being. But in the spring of sixteen sixty four, she she's eighteen years old and she leaves. Denmark wants to.

"Well? A cop out I. Mean I think. That I haven't mentioned I think that. Anyone can create any thing. And you are no exception to that. You can build and create anything you want. If you work tirelessly to make something happen you will in. If you don't quit, it, will something will work whether it is this thing that you're working on where the next thing I love that that is that is simple but powerful advice sell rail. Love it. Okay. Question number three, softball here. Give us your favorite business book. Maybe one that you think isn't to populate everybody's read. So what what? What's your favorite business? Book? Business Look I think built there's a book called the High Growth Start Up, which is useful for a company that is growing quickly or raising venture capital. That's a really good one I. also think the lean startup by Eric Reese good one. It's all about building something on the cheap testing things iterating on things not not getting out ahead of your skis effectively and proving that whatever you're doing on a small level is working before trying to. Make a big love. Awesome. Okay, and here is the fourth and my favorite question. So although we talked about how many of US entrepreneurs in this generation in general is not really into stuff in is not necessarily into material goods We're wondering if there is something whether it's a thing whether it's an experience whether it's a whatever that you've splurged on along the way that was totally worth it. Yeah, I. Think. So every quarter I fly to Amsterdam and I'll tell you why could be anywhere really. But I go to Amsterdam I spend three to four nights or days there and. Every quarter. I use it as a time to reflect on what just happened in the past quarter, and then to think about where I am to better myself to invest in myself to just like have absolutely no agenda and I think it's so valuable to be able to just end. It doesn't have to be strong. But this, this is a splurge man just fly across the world to go to A. A place that I absolutely loved and would wanNA live one day. But you can do this anywhere. You could do it by driving two hours away from relived or flying somewhere in the US and just going to a place to recharge into just think about yourself to learn about yourself better and to figure where you WanNa go from from there. Awesome. I. Love that answer. Okay. Well, that was the four. Four part of the four more now for the more part of the four more, can you tell our listeners where they can find out more about you about feather where they can potentially connect with you or the company and anything else you wanted tell us? Yeah. You Bet, well, no one needs to learn more about me. So let's Let's talk about feather real quick Google Bloomberg feather and you'll find. Find us if you like type in URL's and you're good at memorizing URL's, it's live feather dot Com l I, V e feather dot. Com we're on instagram pretty active. Their have a nice nice set of content. But but ultimately, if you're in New York, San Francisco. Los Angeles Orange County give us a look if you're if you're moving soon and you don't own a bunch of stuff also, well if. for anybody. That's in one of those cities. Absolutely. Go check out even if you're not in one of those, go check out live feather dot com. The website base jess, it really is it really it's, but I'm watching again. Thanks. Start, the show and the show with me. and. We would absolutely love to have you back in a year or two to hear about your progress. My guess is that will probably be hearing about it. Even without you. We'll probably be hearing about it organically, but I would love to have you back in the next year or two just to to get an update and see all the cool things you guys are doing. Awesome. Awesome Jay. This was amazing. I mean just absolutely filled with some amazing tips, great story and again. So different than a lot of our guests op. So we really appreciate you coming on and just educating us and sharing with us. Thank you so much. Thank you. Thank you. Carol, not say, Suck. Thank you but like. J. J.. How did I not like get tripped up on that earlier but got to tell you I just absolutely loved his messages about how his company isn't really just about furniture. Right? It's about sustainability. It's about impacting the world's very mission based. It's really just also all about changing people's behaviors and attitudes about accumulating material goods, right? So it's just so many other things are wrapped up into this huge business, which incidentally like we've talked about this whole time, it started out very, very small. He was on the ground doing stuff by himself, and now he's grown exponentially in three short years. So just love everything about his story the absolutely it was great I. Love the fact. Fact that from the very beginning, he was thinking big. It wasn't a he started a small company. That's are another small company, a little bigger bigger. No, his very first company that was thinking about was basically competitor to Insta- cart, and for those who don't know Insta- cart, it is a multibillion dollar food delivery service, and so he was thinking about companies on that scale from the very beginning, and so just amazing amount of motivation for any of us that are thinking about not just starting a million dollar company ten, Million Dollar Company. But are thinking about starting a billion dollar company and they're thinking about doing it by raising money by going through an incubation program. So. Great motivation a lot of great tips and just a great story overall. So yeah. Okay? Well, I, think that's all I have for this week. Have Cal. Yes. Let's wrap it up. Okay. Let's do it everybody.

"Hi, I'm Rick Steves one of the few things certain about this corona virus pandemic is that this crisis will pass sooner or later it'll pass, and we'll be back to normal. And when that day comes, all of us will eagerly turn our pent up. Travel Dreams into smooth and bursting with fun reality. Let's continue to share. Our travel dreams together on travel with Rick Steves. Today on travel with Rick Steves are virtual travels. Bring us a millennials. Take on enjoying yourself in the Netherlands. Also stroll the sights on a guided walk around Edinburgh. Get a taste of that passionate atmosphere and end Lucia and go searching for Venus in the hour ahead. The. Netherlands seem to specialize in festivals. Fun Ways for the millennial generation to celebrate life to learn how we travelers of all ages can get it on the fun. We're joined in our studio by tour guide sisters, Yoda and Ruby Van Angles Dwarf who both happened to be millennials, Yoda and Ruby thanks for being here. For having us. You're actually twins. Ruby and Yoda and It's one of you older. Yes, maybe one minute older them a one minute older so Yoda. How do you to differ in your temperaments? Well I'm always told that Ruby, Nice. One Which is true? I am a little bit more direct assistance. Dutch people are think I'm a little bit more. Outspoken where we very patients and lovingly, and yeah, so you complement each other we do I think. Together the Dutch are famous for being direct. Yes, we are yeah. This is so fun to think about generational differences, and so on in America and what we call a baby boomer and you got in America people in their twenties and thirties or generate millennials do the Dutch look at generations in certain ways like that? Also? Yes, exactly the same we have baby. boomers are parents are a baby, boomers, and yeah, we're millennials, so millennials people in their twenties and thirties, gen-x people in their forties, baby boomers people in their fifties and sixties, baby boomers, being the most interesting and fun, loving and entertaining. Okay so tell me about the characteristics of millennials. In the Netherlands. Well, it's probably very similar. we are we millennials. Because we got handed everything to us right. We always learned where you're growing up. Everything is possible everything you wanted to do and instead of creating people who are very secure. What they WANNA do were all very insecure, and we're very well like I'm going to do and like every ten years. We changed jobs and There's a lot of enterpreneurs so a lot of people who want to create their own little thing, but we're all sort of this known at were unhappy with everything because we can have everything we're unhappy. Little bit spoiled came easily old. Yes, and impatient. You want it now. Yes, and if you don't get it now, you'll go somewhere else. Yeah, we're own press. And we invented the burn out. Is! Still Alive and kicking. This is travel with Rick Steves. We're talking with Yoda angles store and her twin. WHO's one minute older? Ruby angles. Talking about millennials and when we think about having fun as tourists, we can learn a lot by having fun as millennials millennials love. It seems like in the Netherlands parties in vegetables. Yoda. What's what's an example of festival that a millennial looks forward to every year and Amsterdam? We Love, King's Day. That is one of our favorites. Once It's not we do not have as many festivals in Amsterdam anymore more dough, so I'm stem because such a busy city day try to take people away from Amsterdam, so if you want to experience the holidays like King, stay or Liberation Day It's better to go to one of the less bigger cities. Also. Just what what? What is it? You'd like to go to for one of these big. Go to Harlem, because the most I am from Harlem, so we always love Liberation Day that is in Harlem. It's known to have the biggest festival only ration- days that its fifth of May we got free from the Nazis and every year. We celebrate our freedom. It's just really fun with a lot of artists in music. Video of me. I remember the festival Yeah Amsterdam is getting so congested so touristy. I was there for a King's Day once and there's so many boats you could walk across the canal just from boat to boat. who was just solid votes in the canals, but people were certainly having a great time Ruby. Festival that you look forward to. What would it be every year? ooh I always look forward to the food festivals. There are many food festival also around to Amsterdam. And we have a shoeless that SURF SC fall in the neighborhood of Amsterdam where people go to, they have to take off their shoes and walk bare feet it. It's of course when festival Shula Festival. They have a lot of food everywhere. Fit of electro music seems okay. Let's me to one of these food festivals. Then okay. So, what kind of food would you be enjoying? You would be enjoying some Sushi macos, but also local foods like French fries. The real food festivals hundred stance. You can try a little bit of everything

Andrew DeAngelo on Cannabis Activism

"Everybody. This is Jason Wilson with curious about Canvas podcast. Thanks much for tuning in once again So I am beyond delighted today to be able to sit down and talk with Andrew Dangelo at you. Know there's so many ways I could introduce you. Activists you know co founder of Harbourside. You're involved with the last prisoner project now. Which I know you've been bringing lot of tension to but welcome Andrew Dangelo. Thanks so much for being willing to come on the podcast today. Thank you Jason. It's great to be with your community today. Yeah totally. I'm really stoked to see where our conversation goes. I've been following a lot of your press over the past several months. Some of the interviews you've been doing and keeping up with some your work and there's a there are a lot of milestones to go through but then I know there's a lot you've been talking about lately that I don't WanNa make you regurgitate the same stuff that you've been staying over again someone to try to go in some unique directions here but there's all sorts of stuff for us to Go into right now. One of the kind of segue into a lot of things one of the first things I wanted to ask you about. Is you recently took a trip to Barcelona didn't you? I did I was there for. Icbc Barcelona and span of this. Yes yeah and you. You didn't make it out to the hashish and hemp museum. That's out there I did. I had a great time at the museum. That's Ben drunker zones and operates that museum. He also has one in Holland. Amsterdam and Ben's been old friend of the family for decades and so it was great vehicle able to see his newest outposts there in Barcelona. It's a beautiful building. He's done all this wonderful stained glass work and yeah and if you if you haven't been Barcelona the architecture Barcelona's just every single building every single doorway window archway. is just extraordinarily well-crafted. Beautiful beautiful work and the the hemp and Marijuana Museum. There is no exception and they've ban in his team just done a stellar job with that museum. I encourage everyone to make a pilgrimage to check it out. Yeah I saw some of the photos posted on social media and I was fascinated. How beautiful some of you know the way. Everything was presented the design architecture and everything and I wasn't even really familiar with that museum. Can you describe a little bit about what that museum is like? And kind of how things are presented. And what your experience. There was sure. The museum has multiple levels. So it's two or three stories. There's elevators and stairs that you navigate through it and it's part a history lesson of the plant and and specifically Ham You know the two. The two tracks museum really talks. Most about is is as cannabis as medicine and as an intoxicant and ham has a industrial raw material so so that those are the two focuses. I would say of the museum. And Ben's just got an incredible collection of ancient hemp materials and modern hemp wears also that are represented by some of the leading can't cannabis hemp companies of today. Of course UH sense. He seeds is right next door. Okay Marijuana Museum both in Barcelona Amsterdam and and you can purchase CBD products there and genetics and a whole bunch of really cool will art and culture and Swag from both the museum and since he seats and I was just thrilled to be in Barcelona and an experience that you know we we in the United States. We don't we have cannabis with sort of the first cannabis museum or installation in Las Vegas. There we'd maps just did a big installation in Los Angeles. That was a museum. But we don't have permanent cannabis ham. You know that I'm aware of that's that's as large in a serious As bans I'm sure we have lots of small Wonsan and probably millions of small ones in people's homes. I certainly is yeah I got. I got some in mind mile in my altar of course but you know so when it. It's not easy to have a museum. You know museums don't make money. They lose money and they are about building culture and about keeping something alive for future generations to learn about an and that's hard work to do in our movement in our industry is still in the embryonic stages and I look forward to the day and I hope Stephen I get to be a part of it Where there are something like that. The Hemp Museum here in the United States a- every city should have won. Every every community has cannabis story that goes back hundreds of years and and we can all tell our own version of what's happened over the last hundred years so it's part of the cultural work that I think we're moving into sort of a cultural renaissance canvas. We've had you know we had to legalize and that was just brutal. One hundred year war you know and now we have all these little battles to get legalisation right which we have not done and and of course you know. We have a lot of work to do to get legalisation rights. So that's going to be ten thousand battles that we're GONNA have to fight for that. The cultural work is really something that I think our community is going to have a lot more fun within the political work and I I really. Creativity and culture is been one of the strengths of the cannabis movement community for forever. Going back to the jazz age you know going back to the brothels of New Orleans going back to Jamaica going back to India Longtime in this plant has inspired the creativity of men and women all over the world and so we get to come out of the shadows culturally now and into the light and Where are colors loud and proud and and talk about the plant in ways like a museum? There's millions of ways to express cannabis culture but a museum certainly one of them and you know the there's a big wide open cultural world out there that I hope your listeners will will embrace. There's also I know you know. Science on this podcast. There's a big sign this world of cannabis scientists just like just like culture. It's in the embryonic stages in Gosh. I can't I can't I can't think of something more exciting right now. Then to be working with canvas science or cannabis culture.

Paul Burston: So Many Men, So Little Time

"It was nineteen eighty-eight so I would have been twenty two. I think I finished university and I devoted myself base being a full-time seen queen and I was having a lot of fun of fun. There wasn't really low drugs around that I was not that I was aware of anyway. People get drunk on beer or steal beer. Sometimes I could not that pint of that so it wasn't that kind of like glass frontier. We're happy to be seen. It was all quite behind doc windows. And it was like ultra ultraviolet lights everywhere because everyone's dandruff. On their showed there's video. Scrimmage was a novelty a video screen and a bar and you can pay money to choose videos. We should be done for videos in those days to watch pope whenever you want it to always have. Don't leave me this way by Bouncy. Cb there was always on when whenever into Harpoon Louie's that was on and there was. I WANNA dance with somebody by Whitney. Houston they take me back to those year to that place there were different of tribes within that as well so that look you had that kind of Franken Hollywood's look should. I was pretty those Saturday night at half and that was I was the only night at Heaven which I actually came out by going to heaven so I came. I didn't tell anybody I just went to have on my own and stood outside and I knew I knew there was GEICO. Having everyone knew that and I've seen something in time out magazine I think it was And I went to long understood outside. I spiked up. Hair like friendly McCullough from Akron. The bunny man. I had plucked eyebrows and makeup. I think two hearings in each year on knows that as well and I stood side for about two hours. Watching these men queuing up. None of looked tore like me. They all looked like village people and number shirts and moustaches and I couldn't. I just couldn't go in so I said as a chain smoking I went back to Waterloo train back to Richmond and university again but I went back the next Saturday and the next Saturday and then invention third week I actually picked up the courage to go in getting a little bit closer and I went down those hallowed stairs and I remember that the sense of the smell which I didn't mechanism bustos was poppers. Didn't what he wants to start old socks and you walk into this room and the first thing I heard was this guy sort of swished by saying so many men so little time extra popular tune if the time and I just turned and ran out again because it terrified me and then the funding we went back and I stood literally lately with my back against the wall. Didn't talk to anybody. Stood up against the wall looking people as nineteen of so terrified and then eventually someone talked to me and then not wanting another with that particular. One just generally without something with that particular. Someone broke my heart though. Of course best bastard but to do it come out. It wasn't the best way probably be go to pick new. Only be terrified. Puts ME IN MIND TO SWIM? You start off just you in the water. Then you float. He's on and yes and above our and then you start moving around and I. I've always tend to jump into things too much so I have my local Gay Mitchell. After goes the biggest gates and in the whole world. The time probably to do it. Yeah just throw from seven to that. I left. I'd many many many great times than many great times then over the subsequent years and there so many men so little time. Well they were yes definitely in both senses because we didn't realize then just many men. We're going to have so little time unusual. Change very very quickly became quite prophetic. Really I was making up for lost time. I had fun. I made lots of new friends. Even if you didn't the names at least at least we were together. I'm quite choosy like that. Yeah I actually had sex with somebody wants waiting for night bus into Vulgar Square. Actually in the night in the queue of the night in the kids. Yeah Yeah Yeah by. The National Gallery was no one else in the queue tempted to join in offer offer. Some kind of the neighbors and developed square knows. Days was a real hotbed activity. Whatever would come from heaven or Soho in the middle of the week and they just be. So many gay guys queuing the but Vulgar Square. Honestly say people from that period for similar stories of just like getting on the different night because you fancied some but in finding you in Eastland and you live in Richmond. Just there was. There was a hottie on the and hoping that they'd give you some wet they usually did of charity for me. Part of the fun of those of that period of my life was that you'd go out and you'd meet people and you would normally meet meet a cross section of people. I have friends all different ages. Different backgrounds and sexualities and genders much more fragmented later and I think that the sex it can victim of own success in a way. Because there wasn't there wasn't the connections after AIDS happens because that was a huge thing in my life or knows about twenty five twenty six most of my gay male friends at that point. Were some years old me because I was I I wanted to learn. I wanted to own it someone to be my older brother and teach me and show me the ropes and some and they were the ones that died so I lost all of them pretty much and then I became an aids activist and got me involved in that and the for all of the for all the things that I would not change for anything but a lot of things about the eighty S. I would never want to have back. But there was a sense of community. People did pull together and they did rally and there were. There was communication between different generations. Different tribes within within our communities. And now it is. That's true anymore. I think that there was a break in the chain because there was generation that was kind of lost to HIV AIDS. There was the generation that we're impacted by it like my generation who went to flow of grief innovation space sandwiches very traumatic. And I'm probably not really over yet still in there some degree and then it becomes a very difficult subject to talk about so you don't talk about it very often and then the younger kids come in. And they've got half of this happens. They know the history half the time when you talk to. You have no idea what was going on ten fifteen years before they were. Because why would you know? I didn't WANNA die. Young either. Must be about twenty two when I first heard about it my boyfriend at the time. Read something in one of gay papers and said we have to stop using condoms and I was like. Whoa and then I'd heard that someone I was at college with who was a mature student and he disappeared for a long period. He didn't come back after this term. I then learned on the grapevine that he was gay. Had THIS BOYFRIEND WHO AMERICAN. They basically both contracted dictionary and he died really community rapidly. I wasn't really. I didn't know he might just name to say hi to billy and he was the first person that was. I that I knew of and then the guy was living in the in the tower block with who I was very close to and it was the real mentor of mine. I moved and I went to see him one night and He was he was all something ought to buy it. The whole evening was very strange and strained and I remember asking him about how he say. Seeing somebody recently this new boyfriend and I saw how things go with a boyfriend and he said Oh. What's been difficult because he he's he's a he's upset because I don't I don't have sex now that I majorly positive. And that was how that was how he told me. And I just put the spray face on and just get through this conversation. I was absolutely shocked. Devastated because at that in that back. They're not meant to death. Sentence there was there was no treatment and I remember sitting to this dinner feeding. Obser- your phone and then getting home on the train and just crying. The whole journey home. He became really really quickly and then he was. He won't one of his dying wishes as you wanted to go to. Amsterdam you know Vietnam and his friends. Most of them were straight women elected person to take him and I went. I took him to them on this trip and I spent the whole time. What thinking he was going to die on me. And how am I going to manage to get him what I do? I was twenty four years of age. Twenty five this. It was horrendous. It was very frightening when he was hospitalized to visit him and habit. Bobi helping with things. I remember one time picking up urine bottle onto the bed and tipping acid typically myself and being paranoid even though I knew deep down that this was not something that was good pose. Any risk to me. We didn't really know people didn't really know no. There wasn't much information. And this is before lady. Diana went into the AIDS. Ward this before this sort of stuff happened it was it was still appeared it was not really spoken about if it was spoken about hushed voices and it was very frightening time and he was a very very good community minded person he he was involved in the running of the building and everyone knew who he was he would chair meetings and whatever and then after he got. L. Someone Daubed on his front door house of AIDS on his front door and then he died and I was really in the state about it and reading the papers. There was a meeting happening at the London. Lesbian Gay Entering Cow Cross Street and Farrington. Which is not no longer there but it was very popular but place back then and there was a meeting happening and his act up and I I knew I act up was happening in America. Knew what actor boss I went to this meeting. I just threw myself into it and it took up my life completely for like three years and it was way of channelling the grief because in an over over those three years it was just one funeral after another. He was just he got to the point. Where you'd actually dread answering the phone. And I used to a Filofax that was an effects back in the eighty s. My member year just taking all the names out taking people out because people are just dying all the time even my family. I mean little bits but they just did not understand why this was any different to my grandfather dying because that's expected because he's fucking eighteen easily and he smokes these ill and mentioned me dying and late. Twenties and early Thirties. It's it's completely mad. It was it was like there was a war going on but only we knew about it was the why was completely oblivious and yet within our world which is very very contains. Gay London world. There was a war going on and people were dying all around us and we were expected to carry on as normal. What you have the you do that.

Atheist Experience with Matt Dillahunty & Dave Warnock

"Dave warnock. You can find him at Dave Out. Loud Dot com the. Why don't you go ahead and let us know what's been going on since the last time you hear Dave? Well let's see that was back. Bat crews wasn't a tech September with over. Yeah Yeah we did the back cruise with you guys. And and then after September. We were travelling. We did Meetings are out west Up IN MINNESOTA UP IN Wisconsin went and did free thought. Tv WITH DAN. Barker you know Dan And we had all kinds of stuff going on meetings and then even beginning of this year at California. We're planning to be in Vancouver for the conference similarly just trauma and then we had planned for Europe in Amsterdam in England and all those places in August. Shut down as up here but it's just More of what dying out loud is become. Which is me talking about? My former life is a Christian and a pasture and now looking at a fatal disease with the As as an atheist and talking about dying out loud and living out loud and living your moments and so it's become a thing we've got all the stuff that we're doing and right now it's been put on hold except for these kind of things which I love this. This I was mentioning. I probably mentioned several times. I haven't touched another human being in Amman or more And it's you know being being in the house by Myself. Granted a friend of mine's living situation deteriorated and Sushi's moving into the guest room. Even though wing avoid each other but it could be maddening though. I don't know that I've ever been that I've ever spent this much time truly alone. There were periods of time where I was seemingly alone but I'd have like a roommate and or somebody that I would at least be able to interact with and it was. It was kind of a self imposed thing where I just home at this time. It's different and it's been rough but what's been I'll go ahead and say a godsend just so that somebody can cut that clip out. Later is the fact that we have technology so that I can do video chats with people that I love had people who I miss And I can also stream games on twitch and have a whole bunch of people show up and have conversations and interactions like that so most of the time it doesn't. You'll like that sort of crippling loneliness that I expected or that I even sometimes imagine of all the times in history for something. Go down while it's got to be the best time in history for something like that. Go down because more people are going to have more access. We get information quicker. We can you know. Find out how. What's the how the viruses progressing? Are we making a dent in lowering the curve and our hospitals being overrun know? What's the status on a potential vaccine or antibody test? We have quicker access to information and the ability to share it with more people and ability to interact. Even if we can't be literally face to face like I can't. I'd love to give you a hug dave and I can't and yeah. It's been hard on me in that sense too because a people person I'm very I get energy off interacting with people. I'm very much an extrovert And so having to adjust to just being away from people I mean I've been I've been with Bevin and we've been together and that's been great. I. I don't know how bad it would have been just to be completely alone But yet not being able to do the the The meetings in person and interact with the people and feed from the crowd. I the last one I did was early. March in Nashville. Actually my hometown but where I used to live But I had hard time adjusting to this because an indus going to be honest in a little bit vulnerable here this was a sucker punch for me because of what I feel like. I have a limited window of opportunity to do these things to travel and to be in person at events around the country and around the world and I was very much looking forward to not only the events but to seeing beautiful places because that was a big part of my bucket list. When I got this diagnosis a year ago was to see as much of the world as I could and to have a good chunk of the rest of my life cut away from that was You know at first. I thought oh I'm handling this pretty well then. I realized that my frustrations and anger even was boiling out in in it affected. It affects the people around you when you do that. And I was really not being my best self and I was really a came to the realization this past week or so that I was really disappointed in in in the quality of my reaction to this. You know I I I was. I would hope that I would have handled it better than I have. And learning more about myself. And and I'm I'm you know. I'm I'm a believer in in improving as a person until until I'm done I want to be the best version of myself the last week. I'm alive you know what I'm saying so I I just wanted to react to this better. So what would dave do? Don't do what. Would Dave do in this scenario because Dave didn't do too well and it's funny I mean we're not in identical situations? I mean I I have. I have no clue I could. I could die tomorrow. I could die the day before you the day after or decades later but this process of self discovery learning things. I love listening to people who are going through that and recognizing that. Hey a when I had when this occurred and I had this reaction it felt warranted and just at the time it felt like I was being wronged and now in hindsight when I look back maybe my my reaction wasn't particularly healthy for me or my Roomie. Chips or whatever. I done that many many times. And and it's you know. Sometimes you get better sometimes get worse. Hopefully the trend overall is towards getting better and then the show that we grow that we that we learned something about ourselves. Self reflection is a great gift. If we if we quit reflecting ourselves we're going to quit growing and we just get stuck in in ways that are usually not going to be healthy and not going to be good for people around us and so I you know. An and when adverse circumstances come our way that's when we're tested and You know I was really invigorated by the things we were doing and to have all that shutdown was like I said it just a a real body blow for me and I. I didn't react to it as well as I would have hoped I would have

"And and this is our first trip together to Europe and we're going to be going to Barcelona Paris Milan and Rome. So I am just wondering about some fun things that would appeal to mid twenty year old in any of those cities. Well Barcelona Celona Paris Rome and Milan. Those are four of the most exciting towns for well for anybody but if you think of a couple of travelers in their twenties there is lots lots to see and do their each place has an amazing night scene and you'll want to have them do their own research about what they WanNa do in the evening because there's all sorts of fun to be had in the trendy night areas in each of those places also in each case you've got a family of. How big is your group traveling three of you? You've got got enough people really to justify hiring private guide and I would picnic for dinner if you need to in order to afford this but if you can have a private guide for half a day just to get you started in each one of these towns I'd highly recommend that and you can find You know the emails of of guides On the Internet or tripadvisor or Mike Guidebooks or whatever but in in Barcelona in Paris and Rome Milan. Also if you'd rather you can tap into local guided walks Rome and Paris in particular. Barcelona also also have a wonderful companies that are dedicated to sharing the cost of the guide with small groups and then walking around with a certain theme. So you'd want your son and daughter-in-law in law to know that okay. We've got a certain amount of time in each grade. Cities do a little studying in advance. I don't know what they're interested in. But if it's art or culture or fashion nor cars or shopping or history you know you've got lots of that in each of these places if I look through these towns in in Barcelona. You've got the gowdy sites which are very very popular. This is that Art Nouveau in Catalonia. I would remind you nowadays. There's so many people going to the famous sites that if it's possible to get reservations in in advance. You should do that online so you could delegate that for yet figure out what you want to do but when you go to Barcelona the gouty site should all be reserved online especially the Sagrada Formula Church. When you go to Paris you can reserve the Louvre? You can reserve the Orsay You can buy a Paris Museum pass actually in that. Lets you get into these sites without without waiting in line if you get the Paris Museum pass net includes the Great Palace adverse. I When it comes to Rome you've got a chance to book in advance? The Sistine Chapel Chapel and the Coliseum and the forum and by booking in advance also the most beautiful interior of any building in Europe. As far as I'm concerned his the Gallery Borges easy. It's in the Borghese Gardens and it is filled with the finest statues by Bernini. Who is the father of the Baroque movement? That's a a sumptuous palace. Alice that only lets in a few hundred people at a time at several different Entry Times during the day you get a couple of hours there but she got to have a reservation. Asian if you're going to get into that and the same thing it'd be two in Milan when you go to Milan. You're probably GONNA WANNA see the Last Supper by Leonardo Da Vinci. If you don't have a reservation in advance you will not get through the door. I can. I promise you that right okay great. Is there any worry about being out late at night and you know doing the club scene or are they say You know I think you live in in North Carolina in Charlotte. I would think they're if they're comfortable running around after dark in Charlotte they would be comfortable running around around any of these towns. You know my kids of loved being in each of these cities I can just think of the stories. They've told of the fund they've had after my bedtime and each to these places and I've never worried about them if they use commonsense in places like this Europe is out in about after dark and I think the worst thing that's GonNa can happen is you are reckless new. You get run over by a bike or a car or that. You get pick pocketed by some petty thief. But there's not. There's not Dini violent crime if your kids are not gullible and and reckless. They should be. I think a wonderfully safe in these towns. Great thank you so much. I think one thing they might want to do is have a picnic on the banks of the Seine as the sun is going down. It's just a gorgeous time to be there and all the young people are out and about. It's just like high cuisine in Paris on a on a picnic KHIMIK blanket and it gives you an excuse to go shopping and that's a a member you'll never forget another memory I would recommend with the kids would be to go to a food tour in Rome. There's a district called Testa Chiel and to start show is the old Port it was sort of the entry point from all the produce and so on enrollment to this day. It's where the food is organized for Rome. And when you take a walking food tour of two statue visit eight or ten different hole in the wall. Artisan food shops in. It's a mobile dinner. Sure and that's just a lot of fun. That's something you might WanNa check out as well. That'll be great. My son is a chef and so this trip is also all about food. Well he will love that got to do that in Rome for sure. Okay Cindy thanks a lot. Have Fun and Phillips on the line from Fort Madison Iowa.

It doesn't have the the romance of being based on this diarrhea on but don't miss the Dutch Resistance Museum and there's no crowds house there and it's just an amazing story of what it was like to be in the Netherlands under Nazi rule and the heroics and the courage of people that fought for their their independence. So that something. That's a pretty heavy heavy history. But if he's seen and frank I think it would give it a context and I think that would be a very good the thing to do. Also there's a tropics museum in Amsterdam which is really interesting because it gives you a trip to all of the tropical former colonies of the Dutch. Sh they really had their fingers in a lot of different tropical corners and this tropics museum is really one of the highly thought of Museums in Europe. And that would be something in Amsterdam and you've got a maritime museum. You've got the Henry Hudson and the Dutch east India Company in all of that They've gotTa Museum there which is the maritime history of the Netherlands and for an eleven year old history of buff that would be a fascinating experiences. Well and then when you get to Normandy you really have to tap into some of. He's expiate British World War Two buffs and they just live and Breathe d day landings. There's a number of them in any guidebook lists them and You would want to hire one of these their minibus tours. You can hire them privately or you can just join all day minibus tour and they'll pick you up. And it is the best education for the D Day landings and all of that a World War Two history there. My favorite museum in that area is in con C. E. N.. I think it's called the memorial. The the CON- World War Two memorial rather than a museum but it really functions as a museum and a memorial to the war and two piece for me. It's a very nice way to compliment. Aw You will see their in Normandy and because your grandson is a World War Two buff in London. You've got to see the Imperial War Museum. It's very easy to get to from. I'm downtown London and it humanizes. What war is all about? It doesn't glorify it. It's not just a bunch of tanks and cannons and weaponry it talks about the humanity entity of war and and how it Impacted people back home and it's just an amazing museum in that would be the imperial war museum in London. Great Great. Yeah so lots to see. And it's great that you're going with your grandson and it's great that you're grants and has an interest in this history because that gives you a little purpose to your trip and and a reason to shape your itinerary. One way or another sounds great. And I'm sure he'll enjoy that. All Right Phillips thanks so much and best wishes in your beautiful grand. Parenting breath travel with Rick. Steves is produced head.

"Depart Seth cuco website. Is Seth Google Dot Com. That's spelled K. G. L. UP NEXT WE LOOK at how Amsterdam copes with its popularity among tourists and will help with family travel plans for year. Where at eight seven seven three three or by email? It's radio at Rick Steves DOT com. It's travel with Rick Steves. While the city's population is less than a million twenty million more are coming to visit and they put a visible strain on Amsterdam's every year they range from family groups to budget backpackers backpacker's Test Dag party robbers Amsterdam has been a magnet for world end. The world has ever since Seventeenth Century Golden Age Local Tour Guide Ellen. Young joins us now to examine the impact. The crowds are having on Amsterdam. Thanks for being here having meet great. What's it like in Amsterdam right now? Oh It's a brilliant city it's vibrant city. It's a very popular city. It's A tolerance city and this is attracting very many. Any people am very many tourists. It's not the development that's on its own because you see it all over Europe. There are many places struggling with the burden of mass tourism like offended like Dubrovnik like Barcelona And I'm Saddam to but I'm Saddam is different in that it's one of the small capitals of Europe. Yeah it's it's like compatible to Copenhagen and Dublin Amsterdam they're the smallest capitals in Europe so eight hundred thousand inhabitants but the burden of tourism has increased exponentially exponentially the past decade. When you see twenty ten there were five million tourists and last year twenty eighteen so eight years later eighteen eighteen million? EMT him now you walk down the main street damn wreck. It's a stately street but now the businesses are there really decatur not to the locals but to the tourists. You see hooters. You see hard rock cafe you see a sex. She's young and you see cheese shops right. Yeah the local people. I just say well. That's for the tourist. I'll go to another street. Well that's the problem. Local shops have to go away so the locals cannot buy the groceries that they need. They can't survive on cheese and chocolate. Oakland they have need of a cucumber every now and then. So that's a problem and the city council trying to influence that lie the licenses that they're giving giving to shape the what's being sold. The Mona Culture. They can change the monoculture around. They do no longer license. Those monoculture shops a little knickknacks for tourists. They're trying to problem though. Matic areas water some other examples of what the the city council might be doing. I understand there's some some concern about The vehicles on the canals the boats. Yes they are influencing Trying to curb a recreational traffic on the canal because you can rent a little paddle. Oh boat and that's just a big party there and go drunk and just shouts and be noisy and misbehave and whatever so they're trying to curb that what the trying to curb the pressure of crowds that the trying crowd management really in the Red Light District for instance which is a concentration area to very small all this. He got like four or five lanes on the canals. That are quote Red Light District where you've got all the red lights of the prostitutes and A generation ago. This was kind of a no go zone. It was the sailor's cord hard yet problems. And a Lotta prostitution now. It's sort of Cutesy it's gentrified and all the trigger. Yeah yeah it's almost like a theme park which is horrible to say but you know in. In the olden days you had the sailors coming into the port and just a heading into the city. And you know that was back and of course you had the prostitutes and now you have the cruise liners yes In the port and all those tourists from the cruise liners everybody's making you line for the R. L. D. Red Lasers. Yes yes and it's a very a small area what which is very confined. So let's the Americans are kind of going. What Are Red Light district? We can't but in in in Europe there's a pragmatic a harm reduction approach to some of these challenges that a society has there's going to be prostitution and in the Netherlands. You WanNa take the crime out of the equation try to let Sex workers run little businesses. Yeah exactly what is the pragmatic approach to prostitution in the Netherlands. Well it was legalize in two thousand dollars officially was brothels that would legalize prostitution already was a sort of legal individually but brothels were legalized in two thousand. Just to try and get a grip on the industry as you don't want streetwalkers. We want people. Running businesses aimed places of business. You want to cut out the crime and the Middle Man. The criminals is if a if a prostitute has a dangerous client and she pushes her emergency button. She's rescued by police rather than pimp. Yep does it really work that way the agencies that let out the windows have have an obligation to be at the window within five minutes or so you rent a little window with the red lights and everything and they've there's a little a a bedroom in the back and so on if they've got a problem. The landlord has an obligation to either. Yes they've got all these people patrolling the area so actually could say that the red light district area in the city you know the the Netherlands has this idea of everybody. Watches everybody else. So you've got social control you. I don't know things in the dark. Nothing's hiding it's all right there in your face civil right there in the open and the sex workers are unionized. Yeah it's all regulated. So they have. There's an obligation to use condoms. And you're you checked so you're not spreading diseases where you get your license or whatever yeah okay. And then they're trying to run a business but what they have is thousands thousands of cruise travelers coming in and just gawking so this must be a frustration the frustration because like I said is tolerant city. Not You have this pragmatic approach but this tolerance is under threat because of the mass tourism. We have a very Non Restrictive non assertive assertive manner of policing but when all these people come in you need more restrictions and you need more controls so this is a challenge so this this is really a challenge. How can they preserve the tolerant attitude while keeping an excess is under control? And there's a pragmatism. A lot of Americans are into WHO Just moralizing and legislating morality and they would just say no. There's no prostitution whether it's GonNa be prostitution whether you like it or not. And in the Netherlands the idea is let's take the disease Aziz out of it let's take the crime out of it. Let's regulated and that the different way but it's still complicated. Let's take human trafficking out of it but it's very it's still very very complicated to get a grip on it. This is travel with Rick Steves. We're talking with Ellen saying she's a Dutch tour guide and she's giving us an insight into some of the challenges we have today in the tourism industry which is thriving in Amsterdam so ellen if somebody is thinking of visiting the Red Light district you have to decide when you want to go. Yeah Ah what would your decision depends what you want to see. What are you option? You are you up if you want to get an idea of this neighborhood. Abbott where everything comes together. People are living what people do the shopping where people take their children to daycare. And where you have a sex workers behind the windows Your best that would be to go on a morning right in the morning because in the mornings daycare center right there next to the church does the windows with the prostitutes. Es this the the the MOMS are taking their little kids to the daycare center and the girls are setting up shop and the liens walking down the street and the church bells are ringing. toge- got a guy that this this you can get when you go on morning but say from lunchtime. It gets busier and busier. And if you WANNA get all the sleaze please and you want to get all the rowdy people and all the people that are off their face with whatever they abused and you go on a Friday or Saturday night. So Friday Saturday. Sorry it's going to be thriving what you'd expect. Maybe this is travel with Rick Steves. We're talking with Ellen and we're talking about Tourism Amsterdam phone number's eight seven seven three three three seven seven four to five and our email is radio at Rick Steves Dot Com and Marie emailed us from Philadelphia and Ann Marie Rights. What can the the United States learn from Amsterdam about marijuana tourism and the economy around it as we just start to Dipoto into this industry? Well that is interesting because I think it's been twenty five years since anybody was arrested for marijuana in the Netherlands. And you've got These coffee shops right now in the Netherlands marijuana's not legal. And you haven't figured out the back side what you call the grey areas where it's wholesaled and where it's produced. That's kind of just. Don't tell.

"It's one thing to be prepared. It's another to be so bound to your plan and phone apps that you miss out on. What's all around you when you're on vacation usually early when I'm traveling and I'm surprised it's positive once in a while it's negative and I'm willing to pay that price coming up travel writer Seth Google recommends how to get yourself into a globally curious travel mode and off your phone if you're posting to any of the social media apps while you are somewhere than you're taking yourself out of the moment he? The intense popularity of Amsterdam is threatening to overwhelm the city's vibe as tolerant and easy going Destination Local Guy and tells us how Amsterdam's reliance on tourism is starting to affect the the people who live there. The locals cannot buy the groceries that they need. They can't survive on cheese and chocolate. And we'll help you plan a memorable family getaway in the our hit. Let's get ready to explore explore the world. It's traveled rick. Steves the line to get into the Anne. Frank Museum stretches around the block all day long. The increasing popularity of Amsterdam as a tourist destination is putting a real strain on the people who live there to coming up on. Today's travel with Rick Steves. We hear how Amsterdam is coping with its tourist boom and share ideas and how you can be a respectful tourist even at some of it's less Justin family friendly attractions. We'll also check in with listeners. Planning family travels to Europe to ensure everybody enjoys a memorable vacation. Let's start the hour with tips tips on the best ways to be a globally curious traveler with frequent traveler. Seth Cooper Technology travel is undeniably helpful but overreliance on technology and the Internet can also be a hurdle between you and a rich travel experience. Seth goes written about this topic in his new book. Rediscovering travel travel guide for the globally curious and he joins us now for some advice on how we can switch it over to what he calls traveled when necessary seth. Of course there's great uses for technology in our travels. Nobody would deny that but technology can get in the way and I think that's what you addressed in your notion of the travel mode. What is the travel mode? Well think of airplane mode on your smartphone when you get on a plane you put on airplane mode is a bunch of stuff. It just doesn't work and basically Iowa's fantasizing about what because I'm on a trip and I have my smartphone and now my smartphone works in every country in the world. It used to be great. Used to not be able to use your your smartphone in some countries but now works everywhere so it always be like no. I can't use it. I'm not gonNA open tripadvisor knocking to open Google maps. I'm going to get through this day without without it. I'm not going to post to facebook when you know at the Pyramids at Giza or anything like that. So I had this sort of this fantasy that my phone would tell me what they could do and what I couldn't do so I invented this sort of fantasy app called travel mode you flip it on and the main sort of idea of it. Is it restricts how often often use certain elements of your phone but allows you to use the other ones that really help travel okay. So let's go through these just because we're all going to construct this APP APP in our minds. Thanks to Seth Koogle. What about texting and messaging APPs right? Well I think that people love to be connected with their family in case emergency he happens and I'm not against that so what I've done here is I've said you can choose a few people and allow their messages to come through. But the rest of the folks. You're dependent on that one hour a day. I would. I call connection time where you know. You're in your hotel turnoff. Travel Mode and there you get to answer all Texaco's encased cold Turkey here we're going to give ourselves one hour a night to be wrapped up in Oliver social stuff in my fantasy I actually would have it be a A. GPS based thing and you can only use these things when you're inside your hotel room you're not allowed to use them outside so that's a bit of A. It's even more of a fan I like but it's fantasy fantasy so that's okay. Now you mentioned when it comes to email limit your email responses to about the amount of time it would take to right. The weather's here was you. Were beautiful message on a postcard in the old days. Two minutes Max composing each message. Well email is really these days kind of a work up in a way so you know if you have to answer so the question you get two minutes to answer it. That's it and of course it has to be during that one hour of during that one hour in the evening when you're not in overseas when you're really beck at home in your normal. There's just no such thing these days as an emergency email if someone needs to get in touch with you during the day they can text you or call. Yeah now social. Media's the big deal it just we they seem to have a deeply ingrained need this show off on social media when we're traveling but how does this impact the experience. And what should we do about it. Well there's a huge debate in travel travel. But I I can't help but think that if you're posting to Any of the social media apps while you are somewhere. Then you're taking yourself out of the moment now. I do understand the need. They sort of human desire to show up where you are or at least inform your friends of what you're doing or to be clever. So what travel mode does it still allows you to take the pictures to take the videos and it just can't post them until you get back. You're certainly not allowed to see how many people liked it and who commented on. Oh Yeah just doesn't make any sense to do that when you're on vacation and and these software companies are so good at stroking yours. Serotonin needs by headstrong you. The little hearts in the little sparkles as people love would do. It seems very unnatural to take a picture that would be great on instagram. And then wait until nighttime to to post it but in reality you might even be in a time zone where everyone knows asleep anyway right so it's clearly to me. It would make my trips so much better if I were forbidden from posting on social media until nighttime okay so we got permission not to be reporting live but why do you need to interrupt being in the moment. Get the luxury of reporting later and and working within seth's Travel mode our when you can be connected. What about relationship APPS? This is a very interesting point that you brought up. I never even I thought about it. But there's a lot of relationship APPs that can actually be a plus in your travels but under certain constraints. Well I've been amazed in speaking to people a bit younger than me and a bit singler than me who used stuff like tinder on vacation as a way of meeting people usually romantically? But but not always and and I just think it's a great way to meet people in the place you are. I completely forbid you from swiping people in your hometown while you're on vacation vacation. That is completely unnecessary at does not make any sense at all. Now it's funny. You say that because I was just having a barbecue dinner with a vagabond friend of mine. He's a free spirited bearded guy that basically is on the road almost all the time and he's alone and I was marveling at how he enjoys himself so much alone and he just constantly a uses these relationship as he travels and not necessarily for Romantic hookups purchased. Hey I'm coming into town and wants to get together. And it's a huge bonus for his his Solo globe-trotting to use the relationship APPS. especially if you're the kind of person that has a lot of trouble SM- smiling and ask a question of a stranger. It's a way it's an easy way to meet eight people in. It's become a very normal way to do it seth. Google has been specializing and how to see the world on a budget. Ever since his days as frugal traveler at the New York Times his book is rediscovering travel a guide for the globally curious and he hosts youtube videos on globally curious channel. You know in your book set you talk about how travel is much about your ears as it is about. Your is new taste. Buds music can be a part of our travels if our APPS smartly and it doesn't need to get between us and the local culture right in fact I think One of the things travel mode allegedly does is it. Stops you from listening at least too much to the music. You always listen to and it senses whether you're listening to music from the place where you are and it also has completely unlimited listening to local little radio Local radio is something. We'd never even think about anymore with great podcast like like yours. But when you're in a place I remember driving through South South Dakota and turning on and hearing sort of a native American station talking about political issues on the reservation and I was like well if I turn. This is amazing and I would never have even heard this if I were just listening to my normal podcasts. You know that's a beautiful idea and I've of course when we're in an English speaking country like the British isles. It's obvious it's an and you get that local personality that character even listen to local advertisements and it's all entertaining and adds to your understanding of that culture when you're traveling across southern Spain suncoast suncoast radio. It's for the experts.
