Dutch masterpiece 'Two Laughing Boys' stolen for third time

"Morning. The two laughing boy's is gone again. Why does the same painting keep getting stolen? Dutch police say the painting by the 17 at the 17th century Dutch artist Franz Halls has been stolen from a provincial museum in the central Netherlands. It was the third time that this painting has been stolen. Police say the painting was taken in the early hours of Wednesday morning from a museum about 35 miles south of Amsterdam. This painting was also stolen in 1988, and in 2011 Franz Halls, painted it in 16 26. Experts say this painting is worth about $18 million W W J News time.

A Song For Peace

"This is the story of a song that is in a way the story of this country in the spring of Nineteen, sixty-nine at a sidewalk cafe on Richmond Street tucked in from the corner of Dizengoff. Street in Tel Aviv a twenty four year old poet named Yakov or Janka wrote Blit met a twenty five year old musician and arranger named yet year Rosenbloom and the two men became friends the cafe was called California and the. Place, itself said something about the people who made a habit of spending their days especially, their long nights there. The first thing to know about Cafe California is what it wasn't just one hundred and twenty five meters up Dizengoff was a legendary Bohemian cafe called carseat. It had been in operation since nineteen, thirty five, and since then it was the place where you can find some of Jewish palestines and then Israel's greatest poets and writers. On Alterman and Lebron's Sean Ski. Lay. Goldberg. Alexander Penn great writers who had been young and who grew old drinking coffee in the afternoon and vodka in Iraq at night at the simple spare tables of cassette alongside these luminaries in the nineteen sixties. New Generation staked claims at the table, the actor or. The singer Oregon Stein the architect Yaakov wreck there and many others cafe California was not seat from its vantage half of long block away even the young people at seat where old carseat was yesterday's Bohemia California was today's Cafe California was founded in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thousand, nine by a man named Ab Netanyahu who was only thirty two. Then that had lived a good deal of life. Netanyahu was born in nineteen twenty seven in the southwest corner of what is now Iran in a place called Abedin on the Persian Gulf just. Across the border from Bosra not far from Kuwait at six he was sent to board at Saint. Mary's a Jesuit School in Mumbai where you had an aunt, his parents abandoned. Persia. For India when he was twelve at sixteen and Nineteen, forty three, he lied about his age and joined the Royal Indo British Air Force in time after he trained to watch the Second World War wind down at twenty one he came to fight in Israel's war of independence and never left taking a job as an El Al pilot when he was decommissioned. It was with a few restless L. Buddies that Netanyahu opened cafe. California soon, it was filled with the city's young wannabe writers, directors and poets the people most eager to knock from their sinecures the city's old writers, directors, and poets who argued and held forth at carseat. Ab Thanh was a magnet for Bohemians and he came alive when he was with Bohemians, their company produced in him at once a sense of satisfaction. He had found his people but also a sense of restlessness eighty, nine ton was in constant search of his next Gig in nineteen sixty five he ran for Knesset advice of a friend who worked in PR he pledged that if he was elected, he would fly to Egypt to meet with General Nasser to seek peace after he failed to win a seat in parliament, he anyway bought a nineteen twenty seven steer. Men by playing that, he named piece one on February twenty, eighth nineteen, sixty six, he took off and flying low to avoid Israeli radars he landed in Port Saieed the Egyptians sent him back the next day Nassar had refused to see him back home a retired David Ben Gurion told reporters that not tons trip was an event of moral and political importance and quote pope. Pious gave him a medal of peace and Robert Kennedy and Bertrand Russell sought out his company not much later the notion took hold of Natanz, that music held the key to altering. Israeli. In the summer of Nineteen Sixty Nine AB NATANZ bought a Dutch cargo ship named MVP SEATO MVP stands for motor vessel and he rechristened it the MVP piece from Holland he sailed to New York to raise money and set up a shipboard radio station. His plan was to anchor in the Mediterranean outside territorial waters of Egypt and Israel and broadcast songs of peace that might open the minds of Israelis any. Alike his sojourn to New York stretched biblically three years would pass before he returned with ship in good repair with mixers, turntables, ABC cartridge machines, reel to reel tape machines, and fifty kilowatt transmitter to help not on- by what he needed John.

Bowery Boogie . Captain and Owners Arrested for Liberty Belle Booze Cruise

"Thought I'd be done with this by now. It's month. Six of the pandemic, but everywhere you look, it's the same story with people of God. It's okay. Good Manhattan now Saturday night, 8 30 There's a river about in Manhattan called the Liberty Bell. Liberty Bell b e l l E. I used to have one of them here, didn't I guess? Well, the brilliant onus of the Liberty Bell, Ronnie Vargas and Alex Suazo thes two gentlemen. Ah, book. 170 guests for a wild party. No Mass, no social distancing. And what ended up happening was the word came out to the New York Police Department when they arrived at Pier 36 lower East side. The two owners were arrested for not not following the law. And I hope those guys are still behind bars today. Three days later Now what are they doing? Did the word not reached these two morons yet? Or did they cash whore with these 170 people with three months ago, they would die in By that you couldn't keep track of how many people died in the same city. What they don't What he had doubted your hobbies. Your stupid more. Adds 170. Payback. Think there's no payoff better? What do you think they're on a boat and there safe? I got one more outside says worse. This is that they're in a boat. The boat is this inside area. There's restrooms in about Shut down the fairy of Martha's try this thing. This one's not in a boat out. This is in a plane. Okay. Also over the weekend holiday trip, Amsterdam tto be za. The beat. Oh, yeah, that's a pillar of these. That's a party out is a part of you want to get on that boat, too Gentle bid to English passages out chugging Greg.

Yeah, this plane This is 7 37 KLM Boeing 7 37 From my Amsterdam home of the red light district. While they're hookers wind up in the shop windows were going. You know what that is? They're headed. But these guys, this crew is heading to Abi's at the party. And what happened was they would not put on the mass, so a violent, incredible, highly Ah, viewable. I got some pictures there, but there's video of this. A massive brawl broke out, and people were throwing haymakers at the two vodka chugging English passengers. Wow, that this was complete Mayhem in the plane deal with these people who, like literally lose their minds over not wearing masks. Don't understand. I don't understand it, and I'm going to be honest with you. I'm not fully embracing and Abi's a vacation during a pandemic that also out keep keep keep keep. keep.

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

Accenture’s aerospace team reveals strategies for aerospace CEOs looking to the future

"What is the state of aerospace and defense today, and what's your outlook for twenty twenty one and has that changed at all in the in the recent past Recent past go back into a January February odd things have changed dramatically. If you say recent past in terms of how feeling today for. So spilling back in in. June. Not Not nearly as much. I think know by sum it up I think I look at the industry and so almost tell two cities. If you remember that Dickens novel where on the commercial side, we have all kinds of things going on and you know the impact of airlines and the reduction in capacity, and now reduced number of aircraft being taken and all that kind of stuff going on dampening down you know the business and Yoga Cyber Defence and defence. Largely continuing to perform you know well There are some some issues. There are some blips in supply chain certainly related to things like covid. But it's really is tell to city and we look at Boeing and Airbus both announcing production rates and rate cuts, and of course, we have the existing 737 challenge facing history as well. No I think there's a different side of the coin when we start looking at what's happening on the defense side. And what is that different side of the coin much more positive right? Well, it's much more positive and you know this morning are. Reported there the results in in even just in our she concede example of the Tele two cities playing out. Right now and you know. I think. What I'd like to say is that looking at what's what we're hearing and if we were going to go into farmer air, show the share, which, of course, unfortunately, we did not every year accenture steps back and looks at kind of what we're seeing across the numerous research elements that we have our tech vision, our commercial index and supply chain research, and we look at the work we're doing for clients we look at what we're talking to our. Clients about in terms of where their priorities are. We look at what's going on in industry at large, and from that, we try to distill out what we think are really going to be the you know quote unquote stories to watch and weird do that this year Joe I think there's four things that I think would come out in their four things that I hear consistently I think pat would echo this well when we talked to sea level executives Across our clients defense and commercial, those four things are related to cash management number one number two supply chains smart manufacturing number three workforce in workforce impact in a before's is really rounding technology in systems in resiliency of those systems. into look thinking about where we are today in covert and and what companies need be thinking about as they look forward, their calendar twenty-one. Those four things are really top of mind. Pat, what's what are your thoughts had? We gone to Farnborough what were you prepared to be talking about I? Think the themes that John mentioned are spot on one concept that intertwined through cash management supply chain workforce and systems resiliency is really a need to continue the digital transformation the the level of of change that aerospace and defense companies are dealing with today is is really unprecedented and I think it's changed Focus of of trying to accelerate the agility of decision-making workforces is been fascinating topic. How has a house the debate on that changed in this? I mean, we had a lot of ish. A lot of the talk was about workforce shortages and now companies are laying off tens of thousands of people said, Short Term Blip, John, I mean what are you telling companies to do to be prepared for the workforce of the future? You know. It's interesting. If you think back a couple years, we're worried about the grace. ooh Nami and everybody retiring he let me go back back to January timeframe worried about shortages whether it's pilots are or people in the maintenance shops in of course, we see companies laying off and furloughing on the commercial side, but we also see companies on the defense side hiring, right? So I think Lockheed announced five thousand new hires northbound eight thousand new. Hires right. So it's almost again that tell see what's happening but I think you know the three things that were talking to clients lot about now in this code world where we have more people remark in remotely than we ever did before Amsterdam you have more you're gonNA WANNA add onto this but it's really about you know the people experience how how each individual worker is being interacted with with their company and that comes down to. How they were who they work with and how they get their work done. The second thing is around or Culture. The culture particularly, I think in our industry and maybe I'm biased because I'm in this of this industry but you know you walk into the building and you see the sign, you see the flag, you walk through the hallways almost any aerospace defense office or even in factory assembly floor, and you see the product you see pictures of the product you see people, pictures of people using the products I mean that helps build culture. Now, I, see the four walls of my Home Office or maybe it's my kitchen table or wherever I happen to be working remotely. It's it's a big topic these days how you manage in we'd and maintain culture in the third is really about the work itself and how the workforce works at work in Delhi deals with things like remote collectively high-performance compute environments. Can I get to those from homes cure environment

"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.

"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.

Are these things. She told him he much preferred the moving pictures. Wow Edberg thought this girl is really committed to this whole flapper thing. He confessed theaters made him a bit nervous. He didn't like the dark and he didn't like heights. She told him he didn't need to be afraid she'd protect him. She stepped forward and he stepped back on instinct. He could feel his body begin to fall the railing behind him too low for his tall frame. He flailed trying to catch himself she. She grabbed his shirt at the last moment pulling him in close he opened his mouth to say something but then anthea was there at the top of the stairs is he rushed to her beginning to make excuses but she only looked at him quizzically. He turned back towards the railing. Where where their seats were? The flapper girl was gone..

"amsterdam" Discussed on Travel with Rick Steves

"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. Hi Phillip pyrex correct when our grandchildren get to a certain age which seems to be about eleven. We'd take him on a trip to Europe by themselves and coming up. We're taking my grandson Brenton. Who is a great world war? Two buff and our first stop is going to be in Amsterdam. And then we're going to travel by train down to the Normandy coast and spend about five days. They're exploring the battlefield and ended up in London implying. Homes there your COO GRANDPA. Well I try to be the basketball. Competition is so good so specifically I guess I was kind of curious to know what your top things to do with children in Amsterdam would be top things to do with children and how hello. Your grandson is eleven years old. He's eleven but he's a real history by so. We already have plans to do Dan. Frank Museum and we're already hitting all the museum. Yeah there's something anything else it's kind of a I don't miss. Yeah I'll tell you when you're Amsterdam to complement the Franco's the Dutch resistance museum. It's much more of a museum than the end Frankowski. Oh six five times the exhibits and frank. 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.
