Why the 2020 census matters
"Kwanza in an earlier episode of the ten news. We learned about the. Us census the once every ten years event where every single person living in the us and its territories is counted recently. The supreme court decided to postpone making a decision about whether undocumented immigrants should or should not be counted in the census. It's a big deal because the numbers help determine how resources get distributed to communities as well as how many seats dates have in the house of representatives and their number of electoral college votes. We'll have to wait and see where this decision goes. But in the meantime let's revisit our previous story from correspondent. Pamela kirkland all about the twenty twenty census. It happens once every ten years and it's old like really really old but it's also something very important that every person living in the united states is encouraged to participate. In what am i talking about. It's the census but what is it. And why should you care if you're counted. We asked alex and her mom yasmina boa. Who know an awful lot about it to make sense of the census. Hi i'm alex. I am a student and i'm twelve years old. Hi my name is. Yes men in. I in alex's mom and i became interested in twenty twenty senses. Be some work. That i was doing at count the nation which is associated with the usc annenberg innovation lab. What exactly is the census for people who don't know so it's a survey that happens. Once every ten years of everyone who lives in the united states for example they count newborns children. Teenagers adults teachers parents and grandparents basically everyone the first census an seventeen ninety. That's a long long time running in. Why does the census count matter. The census data matters for kids and families because this is how the government gives money to our communities base up. The number of people who live in a city or state also called our population. The money pays for funding for schools and teachers libraries parks health clinics breakfast and lunch programs at some schools and college scholarship money for some students. The census money pays for a lot. Which is why. It's important for our family to participate and for all of us be counted. No senses numbers also determine how many representatives go to washington dc to represent us in our needs. So i live in california. And they're almost forty million people who live in the state which is the largest population in the country and california has fifty three representatives out of four hundred thirty five but this may change based off of the two thousand twenty cents census numbers. Where did this passion for the census in the census count. Come from well. My mall would not stop talking about it because she worked on it. She got me super interested in it after the many times. She's talked about it. Okay mom so how much were you talking about. The census to alex ally in. It's something that i wasn't really too aware of Myself they didn't realize how important it was to everything that we do all the services that we use in our communities. So when i learn more about it than i thought it was really important for a alex to realize that into be able to talk to her friends in her peer group about why it is important that everyone participates. If you are a kid. How do you participate in the census. So you can help your parents fill out. The census online by going to my twenty twenty census dot gov. It takes less than ten minutes. If you aren't counted now you won't be able to be counted for another ten years with super important if your child is ten years old in their parent forgets to count them. They can't be counted again until they're twenty years old. So the importance of being counted over the next ten years really affects. Everyone's lie every single day so working together to make sure. Our communities in schools are stronger by doing something that takes seven minutes over. The internet is something that i think we should all try to do. The younger generation has so much power. And by just asking your parents to the census can do like make a big difference and even just like going on the internet and researching it on your own can be very interesting and beneficial and you could tell your parents about it and at the end of the day is it's a really good thing to do. The census count is currently closed. And the next time it comes around in twenty thirty you may be filling it out yourself. Have you heard about. The world's loneliest. Elephant name is calvin and he lived alone at a zoo in pakistan for eight years and that was until early december
Hurricanes and hazardous chemicals can be an explosive combination
"In twenty seventeen Hurricane Harvey soaked Houston with record-setting downpours. At the nearby Arkham Arkansas chemical plant flooding knocked out the power and disabled Refrigeration Systems. That were Cooling Hazardous Chemicals. The chemicals decomposed and combusted and the trailers where they were stored caught fire more than two hundred nearby residents were evacuated for an entire week. Susan Annenberg is with George Washington University's Milken Institute School of Public Health. She says climate change causes extreme weather to grow more common similar incidents. Become more likely. This is a really under studied problem that is growing and potentially disastrous and future in recent research Annenberg identified. Almost nine hundred highly hazardous chemical facilities within fifty miles of the Gulf Coast. A region likely to see more dangerous hurricanes. She found that more than four million people live close enough to one of those facilities to potentially need evacuation during a disaster. She says stronger. Regulations can help reduce the of dangerous incidents with proper planning and infrastructure and management. They are preventable.

"Time because it's people's homes were going on fire from the Lens so had the full too so like now it's a new problem with micro-plastics and so it it will be easier. Hopefully when we start buying new machines and hopefully textiles away from fossil fuel derived Things so yeah things are coming things are coming. But but in the meantime in the meantime put pressure on your brands you know it. Tell them ask them why. They're still using these plastic fibers. Ask for better and if you have First of all thank you for taking us through that and myself included like yeah. I knew nothing about these things before she did a paper. I'm getting include links and the show notes about everything. We mentioned the different brands beard planet. Kale the washing machine manufacturers as well as some of the products you can buy like the coral ball and the guppy friend so you can find all of that in the show notes Soon enough to believe that you have access to the full paper. That Georgia has written sir. I'm going to have a okay whip site where you can download the full report if you WANNA learn more and also just the enemy at George Annenberg on instagram. If a few just want to chat about it and about other fashion related things it really is a passion of mine and protecting the environment from these prices is is kind of what I want to do. So so be short. Include the link to the sites paper in the show notes as well we will be able to download it as well as make contact with Georgio. Yeah but the paper or anything else as you mentioned I. Do you know the whole point of this show was to explore the passion skills interests not any of myself but of other people and see where the overlap Joji now often talk about these things because it's something that I care about an assuming that she only the kids about but she actually devoted to skill and is not qualified and I can imagine there'll be a few more episodes with us together in the future but for now thank you for listening and we'll see you soon. Thank you for having me that brings us to the end of the episode..

"It's something that we've been making since the industrial revolution and now we need to change again. You know like we've been making the same fabrics since then. You know making improvements along the way. Okay but it's still derived from the same concert saw. What do we have to cut your? Do we have now now. It's twenty twenty feels like pretty late in the future relative to the industrial age. Do we have alternatives that that have the same properties is synthetic fibres That we can make out of no from a variety of new things that we've discovered of a time well In my paper you know I couldn't talk about everything but I'm mostly focused on the potential of Bacteria and There's a company in San Francisco cold mango materials. And they're really interesting a creating a close loop system where they are breeding bacteria at wastewater treatment plants and feeding them the waste methane that produce the and you know when the bacteria sort of fattened up they are converted into a and then from there turned and into a plastic bottle caps or textiles. And apparently you know it the field the properties. Aw very similar to a polyester so it's almost like a semi synthetic but if something can also buy degrade because it's made from bacteria uh-huh and made a wastewater treatment plant made from bacteria it's actually quite cheap textile to produce. So that's something definitely look at this company called Bolt threads creating spider free silk through Reno Bio like y'all just like bioengineered textiles something to look at So Yeah Yeah I think there's so much innovation out there It's really about getting the investment so that we can scale up and whoa where do you think that investment is coming from. I'm trying to basically decipher obviously a lot of parties involved. You know there's a consumer that Tis the the obviously the fashion brand Government layover wastewater treatment Brown's legislation and else there's probably businesses Is probably the manufacturers of washing machines filters and take some manufacturers themselves. Where do you think who needs to lead the charge? Seventy speaking about investment like who needs to say okay. Let's take the seriously scale. Give their attention to deserves. Probably need yes it definitely. The fashion brands You know the big agree tail. Giants like Zara H Nem. I mean they are investing in some sustainability. But they really you need like a fool textile overhaul and really get these small businesses. That are doing really great stuff like off the ground and and sought using their inventions. Because y'all as I said so much innovation I think they should take responsibility because they are the ones who who are making the choices at the end of the day and you know they have a model muddle that they've been following for so long and I understand that they will need to keep their prices down but it's up to them to figure out how they going to to do that. And if you're producing such a big scale you know it's very possible that you are still able to keep the prices down for your consumer. I think that's the and again. I'm playing devil's advocate. Because just to keep like a realist perspective. The the challenge that I see with anything to drive us to be more environmentally Indian Indian sustainable across fashion but across like each and different things and eating healthier and pigeon seeing from local supplies do things using the right materials all the things that we should be doing currently tend to come at a high cost than the general industry the majority of the population worldwide relies. John which is why it always succeeded. Which is why model exists so the has to be this one? Unfortunately that's why these things take time but also the idea that that h name needs to change. I agree false. Fashion needs to change the reason why I survived because people rely on it now. People Rely Alana certain. Yeah they were allowing the price of clothing and but the industry sort of promotes it's the consumerism. And they produced way too much more. We need more than we need. We don't need to be buying closes often and they always bring these new styles. And it's like I mean czars got the lead time of two weeks about basically every two weeks at bringing out new styles awesome. Yeah so I mean it's like I mean it's it's hard to say this but like the fos- fashion industry or the fought fashion model sort of needs to crumble because we don't need to be consuming and producing as much as we are as a society and there's something else I wanted to add them. What else would even ask me you sort of onto? This is a middle ground that I'm trying to look for other other part that I wanted to add. Is the education piece like I feel like brands. They do not tell the customers everything because obviously have a hidden motive. They want you to keep buying So I think you know what what needs to happen is we need to have brands producing less potentially thinking that prices a bird because textiles Zain Production prices are going to be Grena and most likely more expensive at the moment. And an as we're seeing now is like the slashing of the Secondhand Industry the way you can get close like pretty cheap and fall bit aquatic. And you know I mean I I almost by almost exclusively vintage secondhand these days and of its own. But you know it's a more affordable and it's way less environmentally impactful and we're very lucky to be living in a time where anything anything goes you know like there's no lack specific Not really like specific style of the decade. Everyone's just doing whatever and so luckily at a point where you just expressing yourself with how you feel and that's why secondhand and so exciting and like it's actually it's It's been predicted to overtake the Fast Action Industry by twenty twenty eight's so that's very exciting and it just shows you at the fos. Fashion Muddle is kind of slowly. Slowly coming down. Yeah but is it GONNA crumble change quickly enough to. That's really that that's what we all trying to figure. Yes we'll see. Hopefully it will h and m just appointed this. EEO and you see who's a woman and she comes from a sustainability. She comes from like the head of sustainability at nation 'em so she's not from like finance operations. She's like from sustainability. So let's see what happens but also very very very wary very of these brands who are going green because DNA at the end of the day. They have their public company. And they haven't festus yet so so we have to be very very wary of greenwashing and just just because they have someone at the head who's from sustainability. He does not mean that they're still doing pretty awful things to the environmental in a daily basis. I think that's kind of what scares me as a let's use. ATM example while we still at it. But like it's one thing to have a sustainability department or range in that sense and to do these talks and social media that we're doing the same because in that sense they are covered. And I'm Kinda like quote here. But if that's contained percent of your operation the nineties soul during the old way using the old material kind of offsets yes that's definitely a problem like ATM has their sustainable line. Made from these indies. So called you know renewable fibers responsibly sourced fibers etc.. But then everything else today producing is just like fossil fuel derived and a lot of it gets wasted ends up being banned or landfilled so You know we're going to be very skeptical. I mean even their take back program where they say you can just go and recycle your clothing and you'll get a discount at H.. Name which is making you buy more from them but you know the majority of clothing that we drop off doesn't get recycled into new clothing. It's it's often will be sent to different African nations where excellent off again. It might be. Yeah so you don't actually donating. It's anyone in need noise. Your fab noise. Your clothing. Being recycled into nuclear in Nevada. One percent of your clothing is being recycled into new clothing. Yes it's that low and so the majority of it would be shipped to developing places aces mostly in Africa and be sold in markets there so that whole process has completely killed the in textile moles and fashion brands at all locally based because everyone's just relying on closed from the West and a lot of the clothing actually doesn't get bored in in these African nations either so then they have to deal with the waste and you know. The infrastructure isn't as developed so often gets burnt there and causes more pollution. So you know you really have to be careful of you know he. Trusting and content is being put out there and I think thing that comes back to the education element is like. Don't just believe what you're told by. These brands is often more from the non unfortunately like a hidden story. Oh hidden agenda what. Actually she happens behind the scenes and I want to. I think there's There's a couple things that you start touching on each one of them is probably with you. have an episode of West Devon I into But I would like to wrap up this specific episode with knowing what you took three around Mike Pollution and also the snippets of the The false fashion industry and and some of the pitfalls of it as a consumer as a standard individual. Who's someone educated not as educated as someone who's done courses and research into this? What do I need to know? What are some quick tips things that I should be aware of? That can help curb some of these issues. In the meantime in the meantime in the meantime by less service that is one of the most notable things you can do is just using what you have swapping with your friends and if you need to buying secondhand not everybody has the luxury of having good secondhand stores in the areas that are affordable some of them on the the more pricier one so so. I'm not saying that everybody can do this. But then again clothing swaps with your friends is a is a good one and then Choosing natural fibers Abbas. Where Possible Matsen? Everybody can but that is a good one hand washing. Maybe not all of your clothes does but handwashing the closer to shed more or the ones that are Synthetic based so for example fleece his hand washing fleece as opposed to putting it in the washing machine or other plastic fibers like plus like polyester Washing your clothes on a cold cycle also better because the heat increases more shedding. If you are going to use a washing machine it was also interesting in my studies. It showed me that I found. I should say that washing teaching your clothes in the delicate cycle actually increases shedding. Who which is a tough one because you want to audio clothing But the the delicate cycle uses more water which actually causes more shedding And you know using a lot of detergents and softeners furnace increases shedding too. You can also get Some filters Get add on filtration tenant. CARE is a good example simple there's also this company called full troll. You can attach to your machines. I would say panic carrots. Probably a better bet. It's a lot the easy to install and they better program have a take back program and they recycle their cartridges. And it's like a whole thing so I would definitely say support put a company like planet care And then you can also use a garment. Wash bag the guppy friend is a good example. They absorb old fibers when you the material absorbs fibers when you put your clothes in for washing and then there's the core bowl which is those Nanno bowl all that you saw in with your clothing it's captures a few fibers. But I mean only about twenty five percent of the time I have one. I haven't seen a ton of fibers Abbas But those are some of the small things you can do but also remember that you can. You can do what you can but it's also not necessarily really your fault and just like do your best because at the end of the day like it really is like a something that needs to be regulated regulated and spearheaded by. The fashion industry's so don't feel guilty. If you can't do any of these things because you know it's it's it's extremely hard to avoid. Yeah and I mean I I would like to add one more which is really recapping do you mentioned. Is that the a case in perspective it in like. I'm a firm believer that in whenever there's a situation where the solutions are not that clear or still pending the mere trade of education in an awareness and just spreading that between people especially around the topic like micro plastic which is not that spike in about. And it's not that obvious Taking what you heard here allred elsewhere and just talking about other people just make another people away of it and my not change their ways but at the very least is it. It makes you aware of something that exists and I do think they'll be like subtle changes in your life when you buy two you look at the label and I also the thing is developing a little bit like wash. Didn't mention this earlier. But like washing machine producers assaulting to make they washing machines jeans with Bolton filters so you're drives have those photos at catch capture the Lynch and that was created also Ron Industrial Revolution..

"They're a lot more toxic because they have all of these harmful chemicals Kohl's that can cause kidney failure cancer specifically yeah mutations It also blocks up the guts and digestive tract of aquatic life. It leads to slow a predation and low birth rates in general. And you know it's kind of slowly. Killing natural ecosystems so another another big factor is that they move up the food chain and so if you are ingesting fish seafood you're most likely ingesting micro fibers having said that though it's also not drinking water. It's it's also in it's been found in honey been found insults. So it's extremely hard to avoid so that's why it's very problematic. We don't really know the extent to which it's affecting humans that isn't enough studies to really see because it's unethical to make a human eat plastic so we can really see out affecting us but there have been studies on how it affecting animals and you know you can kind of assume that if it's slowly killing certain species it's maybe slowly killing us. Yeah I mean you can make some predictions based on what you can observe so far. But I'm you know it could very much be need these cases Similar to like smoking back in the fifties sixties like no one knew the long-term effect of the thing. Because then you're you're noise you KINDA gotta have to wait until it happens. Had To wait like twenty thirty years to see the smokers in the latest in their life and then conclude that. Oh wait this thing that you did twenty years ago and have been doing for twenty years later this so I think you know maybe a similar case lives with my complex. Even if they do. These studies know there might not find anything alarming now but who knows that if you followed this if nothing's changing in front of the Consumption Habits that in twenty years time they realized there's a mysterious mysterious disease associated with Mica Plastics. And by then it's almost like I won't. I don't want to sound cynical and say it's too late but it could have been preventable. If you made made some assumptions no Something that a obviously not having spoken to you. I didn't think others realize much. When you say micro-plastics micro-plastics how micros like smaller sustain if it's managed talk into all these organisms so Micra are plastics are defined as anything that smaller than five millimeters But that means they can be extremely amy tiny and most of them are basically invisible to the naked eye to reconsider. Sometimes we even the US most of the time we can't even see them And that's why they so easily you know can slip through washing machines and as well as into the water throwaway would a treatment plans because most of them are so tiny and really hard to capture and the technology is just not there yet to capture these fibers one hundred percent some waste will achieve. Implants can capture the bigger fibers. But at the end of the day. You know even if they do capture it. It will end up in the sewage sludge. which is kind of like the sludgy lift over part of some some of the solid waste stats court at wastewater treatment plants and so that sludge is often applied to you land as fertilizer or goes to landfill so either way these fibers are re entering the environments and I also just wanted to add? I didn't say early area was that we're talking about like a few fibers per wash like we're talking about hundreds and thousands of fibers per wash so one one one fleece sweater can this is a mean. Fleece is one of the biggest polluting Garments textiles I should say sorry can release about one thousand seven hundred fibers per wash nets. Just one piece. Imagine how many pieces you watch in cycles maybe Using what you've just said. Can you give us a bit of context on the level level of impact because like I update devil's advocate forsaken. I'm here in the woods micro-plastics I'm hearing that they Nick I mean not visible to to the naked eye that makes me think I understand the problem that you're referring to and they picked him. I'd have water quantity in marine life. But it sounds literally like a micro problem when I compare it to somebody that I know I can see like bottles of plastic in the oceans and plastic bags and all kinds of that. So what does it mean in terms of scale neck. What are we talking about it talking about yes? One one major city in Vancouver can There was a steady. I don't have the reference off the top of my head it's in my paper It talks about how one wastewater treatment plant in Vancouver releases like trillions of fibers per year record. So that's just one and and waist which you can plant in one city so these micro-plastics that in the trillions eventually amount to a massive scale all Microsoft plastics in the ocean. There is solid plastic and interestingly enough like solid did plastic in the ocean that it could literally border like the whole world. Almost like that's how much there is right now. Also just think about how many micro-plastics actually are so I just want to fast forward a bit because I'm so we can spend hours hours talking about Michael Tactics and why they're bad and would live an would love to but I think what People might be interested in and myself included as a senator problem. We understand how it into his environment in different forms and potential but probable implications of that. What is pretty so this is what you pay for Ferguson? But like what do we do. How do how how do you give somebody that? You can't see unlike a plastic bottle in that case yes sir. That's was what my paper mostly focused on because you know the so many articles about the issue. No one's really talking about what you can do and windy. Aw articles about what you can do. It's really sort of put on the consumer to sort. Oh to figure it out like oh like stop buying synthetic clothing and get this filter and y'all like that's great but you have to be in a very privileged position to be able to do that. Let's I mean most synthetic clothes are the ones that most people can afford. Natural fibers tend to be a lot more expensive. We connoisseur -sarily all have filters and another thing to lessen fiber shade is to hand. Wash your clothes but not everybody has the luxury of time you know. So I didn't want my paper to put that pressure on the General Cosima so I wouldn't look at mitigating microphone pollution on more governmental level and so I started looking king at how laundry mats in New York could potentially be regulated to have Filtration and at their establishments are the filters that exist that can catch micro fibers smallest. Yes most of the filters are actually actually for consumer and elect small but one company. I know of Cour- planet has made an industrial full to add. Is it's kind of still in development I'm not sure one hundred percent ready for market And they have designed one for laundry mats so uh it has about a eighty or so percent capture rates so not all the fibers would be caught a wash And your I mean. They're an interesting company because they really don't want the fibers to we enter the environment again. So they kind of plan to have those take back program where you know when when the fibers are connected. They will when all the fives are collected at the filters they will then take back the fibers I birth and sort of collective and over time. Turn it into insulation panels. So it's really creating this zero waste business model which I think is very cool closed loop of salt. Yes Sir you know. That's just one of the ways that we can start lessening micro fibers on a big level. And I was looking at you know incentives of Hollandi Matt's what would motivate laundromats to have them or will it just be like a bill that kind of says that they have to have it. Would they get grants to install them because it's obviously an expensive endeavour laundromat in New York. Thirty five thousand more around that tens of thousands of Muggy Matt's because most people will I mean nowadays Aug- days people are getting washing machines and buildings but I think back in the day like people went and took laundry Minnesota people were allowed to replaces. Yeah so that's why I I mean my. My paper was mostly focused on solutions for New York. Which is why I looked at laundromats the next level level that I looked at was at the ways to treatment plant level and I was a bit of a complicated one because as I mentioned before away towards implant actually can capture almost all of the fibers? If it's if it's like a quite a developed plant it really depends if it's like a primary secondary tertiary treatment plants And so you know those definitely positive but then again they go to the sludge and then can re enter the environment so because of that issue I was looking at the potential of adding plastic eating bacteria or fungi into the way toward a treatment plant process because bacteria actually already ACT WASTEWATER treatment plants. They they bake basically breaking down I'll puke and so even not necessarily able to break down. Plastic maybe maybe you could add plastic. Eating bacteria to the treatment process of course would be expensive and it take time so to figure out if this would really work and what alterations. You'd have to make to the process to actually make a to do what but she wanted to do so. Yeah that was another area that I looked at What about the of the freshman? Brian themselves mm so so so basically like Ni- looking at laundromats and wastewater treatment plants were kind of like temporary short term fixes but really really what we need is like a fool textile involvements. We can't keep producing what we are producing saying. It's just too damaging when I say that I mean plastic clothing but it's hard you know like the fos- fashion atten industry. That's how they make money. That's how they've always you know kept business. Going is produce the cheap most cheap cheap clothing that they can they can achieve that with these synthetic textiles so that the main might have do thankful fetch manufacturers so it specifically those in the fast fashion side of things. Yeah keeps costs down and you can also manufacture these tech's faster than you can natural. Is it a quantity question mission as well is it. Some some synthetic material is just better quality than what we can derive naturally wall. Sometimes you can like men do a natural with listen to create a release superior feel or and athletic wear is a good example. Because you need you need Lycra for that stretch Innis so it really just depends on what you making some. Thanks can often. Maybe a BUD light says sometimes cotton cotton hemp and linen can sometimes feel but thicker on the visit. No definitely but I feel like you know we..

"We take a deep dive into the passion skills and Interests Jarvis in life and everything that we do. I'm your host Adam. Lipschitz Hey everyone and welcome to the first episode of season two. It's been a good couple months since of recorded an episode And it just happens to be that. This is exactly a year since I started the show Today I'm not alone. I'm joined by my future. Wife my fiance on say Georgina. Annenberg say hi obviously. There's a lot talk about. I'm sure we'll do a few episodes in the future Today we're going to be specifically covering old things wrong with fashion and specifically micro-plastics topic that Joji covered Dune Master's degree which you will expand on shortly But let's maybe start with a little bit of background like how did did you get to New York. What did you study? What was your journey so far to where you are today? Well I moved to New York in the beginning of twenty fourteen and I went to the Fashion Institute of Technology and I was in their fashion business. Management Program and specialized in product development and product development is really cool because you're kind of the middleman between the manufacturing side and the design side. So it really gives you the window to kind of see the entire assemblage judge of a garment from start to finish and all the little pieces in between the transportation and yes all the details that go into who making a comment and you know studying in that field and working as a development and production intern At Marc Jacobs and Calvin Klein really opened my eyes to the general wastefulness of the industry. And I just knew that this wasn't sitting right with me and I wanted to really dive deeper into the environmental protection side of the fashion industry so of August twenty eighteen. I enrolled in the sustainable environmental systems program at Pratt Institute's and it really had nothing to do with fashion. It kind of took more of like urban sustainability stance and there are a lot of architects environmental science Lyon students and then there were a couple of people like me coming for more creative backgrounds like fine arts fashion to start a school that has not a fashion to take a leap into a different area. Entirely I mean practice have a fashion design program the grabbing they are an off school so like the is at creative side to them. But I was worried going in that I would find the material very dry eh. or it wouldn't relate enough to my interests but I realized that the fashion industry is so big and you can really find so many ways that it can relate so for example for learning about renewable energy that can be translated into an factories. And how close get transported If you're talking about waste management's you're learning about you're thinking about about the end of life of a garment recyclability its potential biodegradability or if even thinking about environmental law. Then you're thinking about how maybe how dying comments is affecting communities and what is is the where's the justice around that so I always found ways to link it up and I was luckily lucky enough to take some sustainable production action classes actually outside of my program with industrial design students. I took a life cycle analysis class which was also very helpful so at the end of the day like just worked todd ready on. I'm so happy. It wasn't from through Fashion Lens because it just it allowed needs to be more open to different perspectives and industries. I would never know about if it was like a sustainable fashion degree so yes I finished that last December. So that's kind of thank you. So what is what is the official title. What degree again looking away with? It's a master of science degree. You hear that. She's more qualified than all of us. I'm curious as to you know you mentioned that. Oh you had to think about these subjects and things of to learn from a prospect from the perspective of Fashion because that was your background initially is that something that continues to be had to convert in your own head to like take what you learn because it wasn't being taught in a fashion sense as far as understood it's like someone teacher and then you have to think a cake. This is how can apply it to the industry that I sort of you know started with and potentially walk into is at the goal. Now Yeah I mean there. There was. I didn't necessarily go in being like all of my projects going to be fashioned related. It kind of just happened like that. Not just because it just showed that I'm interested in that area So it's just organically unfolded and it felt really good in it ready. Yeah at toward me a lot but at the end of at the same time as I said like you know I learned about a lot of architecture. Urban planning theory very e SAR it at the end of the day. It was very well rounded overall so knowing what you know now you know through your experience at fit which was obviously very fashion forward in three internships and now sort of taking the leap into a more desolate general degree that covers multitude of areas as they pertain to sustainability? Do you find that your interests has changed. Your natural desires of what you WANNA pursue have changed. Is that something that you've learned hypothetic as you said like architects oil supply chain management. Like as something else that sort of picked true interest to to now focus on. Yeah well I got really interested in water. And how our production action practice practices can affect water in various ways Water is scarily abundance like to abundant in some places like New York or drying out in Cape talent but we all need it to live and a lot of our daily practices and the brands that we buy from are killing our voters through drilling fracking working and in just creating products that have chemical wastewater especially the fashion industry and clean. Water is is like a hot commodity. We have the Hudson River like right by us. And it is so polluted Ed's Ed's It's disgusting but we live right by it so I got interested in in that and I interested in how different industries St Affect. What's up but fashion was definitely like a big focus for me there and the dying industry and also when you producing producing close? You have to especially with Denham for example wash it multiple times to get the right wear and tear look and every time that results in more chemicals chemicals being polluted in the water and and also I mean building like that also building big Establishments you know this also a lot of pollution that ends up allegations at the same time speaking about pollution. I'm the and it's pertains to the Hudson River valley like around the world Did that knowing what you know about toward the scarcity of it and the quantity of it and knowing what you know about fashion did those elements combined drive you to focus. At least you're damn efforts and we'll get to the shortly but in terms of you want to analyze the interaction between the two. Yeah and that's what drew me to do. My a thesis on the microphone pollution issue because ready is at the intersection between fashion and the environment and how fashion can affect it at you know. We're often thinking about fashion affecting environment on the production level but not necessarily early on in the consumer use phase. So I wanted to dive into a topic that people didn't know As much about and sort of it's almost like a little secret that you know the fact industry knows about but the consumer doesn't and they're the ones who you are sort of like blindly doing polluting micro plastics and unaware unaware of it so. I wanted to open people's eyes to how clothing and our daddy maintenance is affecting the environment. So let's the use this episode has a chance to unpack that. It's not maybe not necessarily like secret. But the stuff that people generally know about so Nissan micro-plastics micro Fibers what is it exactly. Can you explain briefly. So I'll close are made up of Yawn. And when we wash clothes whether they are made from natural fibers or synthetic fibres tiny little flecks of of these fibers will Get released during washing in the washing machine now. The reason why micro-plastics are you know was my focus was because it is a lot more ubiquitous more people are wearing synthetic clothing that includes polyester nylon acrylic. You can check your care labels. I'm sure you have plenty of the plastic clothing in covered. And that's also what I wanted to add is that you don't always necessarily equate plastic nick and your clothes. You see plastic bags. You See. Just plastic on an everyday basis basis. But you don't necessarily thing t shirts you wearing is made from plastic. It doesn't feel like what we know plastic to be. Yes I mean we can see Plastic bottles plastic bag Parisian Russia's wine it's visible and to. It's it's what we appreciate plastic to look like in feel like But the plastics. You're referring to not that intuitive. It doesn't some maybe. Could you give us some examples of like you mentioned to synthetic material but like what are some. Some of the examples of people can go out full that is essentially plastics or plastic derive including your. Yes says I said. It's it's polyester acrylic a nylon those your plastic clothing and the reason reason why we don't associated with plastic is because they mimic natural fibers so acrylic wall mimic a wool and a polyester often mimics cotton Also SPANDEX is a big one in gym where you know plastic fiber and that is field derived like all plastics. So it's it's you know it's derived from oil and through various scientific processes ends up being the sort of Hoti nodal as they call it and not get sort of extruded into a fiber and yon and in the textile and including a lot of prices to teach extremely simplified version. Of course I'm not explaining everything. But that's just sort of for the very basic part of it so that well all the fact that it's fossil fuel derived is super bad for the environment because such just putting more carbon dioxide and atmosphere and needing to global a woman as a starting point and then when we wear the clothes and washed the clothes these small little plastic fibers will come off the clothing and go into environments. I am but particularly end up in the water bodies allegations all rivers lakes and and plastic itself is a lot more harmful in the environment in a natural fibre. Like cotton And that's because uh plastic is man made and made from chemicals at all costs an agenda and also extremely adherence to two other free-floating pollutants in the environment like mercury so when they come into contact with aquatic life humans or terrestrial life..

Latinos are sorely underrepresented in film
"Welcome to the frame. I'm John Horn. Latinos have been underrepresented in Hollywood for a long time both in front of and behind the camera last week a delegation from the Congressional Hispanic Caucus came to La to discuss the issue with Industry Leaders Congressman Joaquin Castro of San Antonio is Chairman of the Group and he says the Hispanic Caucus has a couple of concerns about representation. We worked in in Los Angeles on two issues in particular the gross underrepresentation of Latinos in the entertainment industry and the second getting is portrayal of Latinos in television and film for example. This latest Annenberg report found that of the lead characters on film. Twenty eight percent played criminals which is obviously for any American community or segment of society Misrepresentation and so we had meetings with six or seven studios and executives from those studios. We met with a few of the Gills. The street actors Guild Sag after and the directors guild and and we had a chance to meet with about forty Latino actors actresses producers directors and others about the Hollywood ecosystem Oh system and the challenges that they face hitting work in that system. It's not just the kinds of parts. That Latinos are getting. It's the number of parts Latino. Oh actors barely got four and a half percent of the more than forty seven thousand speaking roles in the top one hundred grossing movies from each though past twelve years and Latinos make up a huge percentage of the US population but also the movie going public. It's almost a quarter of all. Ticket buyers are Latinos. So was there any explanation explanation about that. Disconnect yeah I mean we had pleasant meetings with everyone And you know and everybody talked about. The things are doing to try to do better better. I can't say that there was a satisfactory answer to that. Issue up they did talk about their different pipelines for writing for directing. You know this and that that they're working on. But as I said to those folks in the meetings look if you're at three percents now of Latinos in front of the camera behind the camera then. Whatever you've been doing doing in the past obviously has not worked? So what are you doing right now. And what do you plan to do to improve those numbers And it's very strange that an industry like Hollywood this considered liberal and progressive. Then he would have worse numbers than the fossil fuel industry the oil and gas industry in my home state of Texas Texas. The numbers obviously don't lie the representation of Latinos along with a lot of underrepresented groups in Hollywood is terrible. Why is it important that that it changed? And why is it important to you personally. Well there is a cost to that underrepresentation in C. Suites In terms of casting directors producers etc and part of that cost is a misprint trail of Latinos. I think get no. We not only affects how the how people see themselves but also how. The larger American public sees a Latino community. So when a president or we're politician or anyone else gets up and says that Latinos are criminals and rapists murderers and people turn on their television set and they go to a movie movie and that's exactly what they see then. It affirms that idea for them that the person who's speaking is right and taken to its extreme. It leads to what you've gotTa Know Paso Texas a few months ago which is a madman driving Ted Hours to kill twenty one people. Because he sees Hispanics as invaders to the United States never mind that Latinos have been here for generations. So Hollywood has to take a really deep and close look in the mirror and start to change and change -serily not just by lip service but actually changed. And how do you think that will come about because we've had study after study leave for the last decade that's pointed out these numbers and it doesn't seem like the needle is moving. Do you see any hope for optimism. You you know I. I was Optimistic after it was conversations in terms of Congress's involvement in Congress does have jurisdiction over tax incentives. That provided to the film industry. Just like different state. Legislatures have jurisdiction over tax incentives. That are offered in different places where movies and television television productions are set. But I I'll tell you I did tell some of the folks in these meetings that for us for those of us that were on that trip for the Congressional National Hispanic Caucus and I think for I would dare say for many other members of Congress we have is a mark Zuckerberg level problem here in terms of Hollywood. We have have a problem where an industry is acting incredibly irresponsibly and doesn't seem to be doing very much to change it so the idea that you would bring executives from from Hollywood in front of Congress. The Judiciary Committee is the committee that has jurisdiction basically over Hollywood. That idea I think is something that we should consider consider. Let's assume that these Hollywood executives who aren't really doing what maybe there should be doing. Were to testify in front of Congress. What would you ask them? Congress has brought different industries In front of it to question them on their practices in terms of hiring and diversity and what commit. But they're making do those things and so I ask him questions about the processes they put in place. I mean. Look when you're in a city that is forty percent. Latino in a state is forty percent Latino country that's eighteen percent Movie ticket buyers. That are twenty three percent over indexed on movie ticket sales and this group of people only has about three percent of the rolls when you combine in front of and behind the camera you get to a point where you have to admit that that's systemic exclusion of a group of people and when we have systemic problems not just individual problems or one person here there air when you have problems. Those are the kinds of things that Congress and legislatures should get involved with Joaquin. Castro represents San Antonio in the US House of Representatives. He also chairs the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Congressman. Thank you so much for coming on the show
Study finds films lag significantly in Latino representation

Instagram Slowly Tests Hiding The Number Of Likes On A Post
"Support for this podcast and the following message come from American pest open your doors who a healthy pest free home with American pest offering safe environmentally friendly pest control solutions throughout the D._m._v. for over ninety years learn more at American American past dot net instagram is slowly testing out a big change. The Social Media Company is starting to hide the number of likes that post since stories get when they're put on that platform. Sam Sanders hosted the N._p._R.. PODCAST it's. In a minute is an instagram fanatic so he's here with analysis hi there Sam Hey. How are you for people who aren't on instagram? I guess you're you're putting up pictures and you can see that five people liked it or five hundred people liked it. What's happening to that feature now exactly so in the same way that on facebook you can see how many people like your grandma's post about someone's birthday? It's like that on Instagram as well but that social reward that we all get for making instagram post to get a bunch of likes it's become a popularity contest. INSTAGRAM says has and they want less of that so in May instagram began to experiment with removing the ability to see how many likes our views other folks post receive just in Canada at first and not all Canadian users just some and this week instagram. Graham rolled that out to Australia and Brazil and Ireland Italy Japan and New Zealand so now some folks in those countries won't be able to see the light or view counts on other people's posts but they can still see the tallies on their own posts. Wait wait a minute. I can still have that addictive feature of looking to see if anybody likes my thing but I don't have to feel bad that somebody else got five thousand likes on. There's yes so at this conference in April Adam massery the head of instagram. He said he wants. As users to spend a little more time quote connecting with the people they care about not wrapped up in popularity contests with strangers and that kind of statement may be instagram responding to a recent trend specially with younger users they want a social media experience that feels a bit more private and personal not so public and performance live so they basically are moving towards a more walled off social media just for folks that they actually like or at least know and of course this is also also a moment steve full of negative headlines about all of the social media apps how they affect our emotional health fears about what kind of data they collect on us and so for instagram disliked test allows a company to possibly get a few days of positive headlines. And it may make it seem like this big. Tech Company really cares about us. There certainly are big issues on the table as you've just suggested and there are studies suggesting that people can be more or less depressed to based on how they use social media for example but is this this tweak and I guess it sounds more like a tweak than a huge change really going to change the experience and make it more healthy well. I was thinking about it. I use instagram a lot all the time and I said to myself even if I don't see the light count on Instagram for other people. I will still see all those pretty people on the beach with ads and pretty friends and cute dog's living a life that looks better than mine. The photos in the videos of a picture perfect life are still out there so that intense comparison it can still be there even without me seeing a light count and I talk with Karen North. She's a professor of Digital Social Media at U._S.'s Annenberg School and she told me sometimes that like function on Instagram is not a bad thing then maybe trading one problem for another our people say if I get X. number of likes all donate you know service dog to a vet or a plant a tree or do some other 'cause we cannot join together anymore to promote those causes or even have that sense that we've come together.

And that's the whole the powerful accountable. The only people that are going to be held accountable are conservatives and Republicans, regardless how much power they have or are perceived to have. But even that just the competitive nature of things not one person. Sought to get the truth of this story sought the question, it, maybe they did in their editor stolen. Go pound sand. I don't know. But but but. Stopping to stop and think of the career opportunity that was missed here by everybody. Now to the point they're so embedded in this. They've got to continue with the y they've got to continue with the hoax. Okay. The audio soundbites we go Kathleen hall Jamieson. She is a media analyst and scholar at the university of Pennsylvania the Annenberg center. Analyzes media and stuff. And I I don't want to embarrass her here. By singling her out. You know, people that I end up praising and the drive-by horrendous. Fear for their reputations. And I'm not trying to. Inflict professional harm reputational harm on miss James at all. But over the years, and she she's one who studies media and writes about it incredibly the lengthy and in depth studies various aspects of media, not just print, but broadcast and how they operate and who does it and who's a journalist and who isn't in what they reported. It's very thorough. And she is one of the few who's ever really taken the time in her studies to study this program a report on them, get it, right? She's gotten closer to it. And it's not hard to listen for six weeks can figure out what's going on. She's one of the few who have done it. She showed up on C span two yesterday. Program called in depth, and the host of somebody named Peter slim these interviewing author and university of Pennsylvania, professor, Kathleen hall Jamieson. She got a new book echo chamber, his question and your book echo chamber. You suggested if Rush Limbaugh the editorial pages of the Wall Street Journal and key players on Fox News were confronted by serious Republican presidential contender whose proposals and past deviated from Reagan doctrine, they would Marshall against that candidate so translate his question you write in your book. That if a Republican presidential candidate came along here who was who was diametrically opposed to Reagan, policy wise, things that these guys Limbaugh, the Wall Street Journal, the total page, Fox News. Would align against that candidate. Is that true proved incorrect the natural impulse, and we were studying multiple elections for Rush Limbaugh was to maintain basically of traditional Reagan Republican perspective on the field and play an important role in helping to that primary contenders for the nomination. But then once you got to the general election to move behind the Republican candidate translate what she's saying here is that in her studies over the years of me and this program. That what I traditionally did was find the closest Republican candidate to Reagan. And then while not endorsing because I never do that in primaries. Help to vet other contenders on that basis. But then once the general election comes whoever the Republican nominee is Limbaugh gets. She pretty much right about that. So what this is being set up to is how she said proven incorrect, she she was of the belief that I would be among those opposing Trump because he has nothing in common with Reagan in a lot of ways. The question from the moderator. Rush Limbaugh often refers to his segments as an entertainer. We did a survey at one point that gay people list of individuals and asked which of these are journalist at surprising percent considered. Rush Limbaugh to be a journalist, and I actually understand that at some level. Because what Limbaugh does is offers a great deal of accurate factual information that is the basis from which we can get a consensual argument on each side. So to that extent he's performing journalistic function. Translation, what she got it. Right. Well, she's I present both sides in order to present my side to you. I present the left wing side. I tell you what the liberal version of something is before giving you the conservative version. So you have something to compare what I'm saying what I oppose. Play play. Remember, the context of this? She's the first bite doesn't quite get to what she's really. And let me see if the third vite. She's really stunned that I was not never Trumper is really what this whole thing. She thought I would be among the never Trumpers as a conservative who would be repulsed by by Donald Trump. And where she misses it on that. I think is she expected me to become a never-trumper based on ideology to her Reagan equals. Prototypical conservatism that is the standard everything is measured. If somebody doesn't measure up, then Limbaugh is not going to support them. What she's missing an all of the never Trumpers missed. Is that the objections to Trump by the never Trumpers is not ideological? Trump is implementing many of the policies these conservative never-trumpers have devoted their lives to and they still oppose him. And it's not because of the allergy. It's not for anything. It's personal. They just don't like Trump as a person they don't like his manner than his mannerisms. They don't like his hair like the way speaks. They don't like his his basic existence. Doesn't matter. What is is? And. I am remaining Idi logically pure here. While the never Trumpers are abandoning their any allergy. And that's I don't know that she missed that. Or is not specifically looking for it. But and I've run into this a lot in the early days of the campaign. There were a lot of people who thought that I would be leading the never Trump moment. Trump is not conservative Trump's not talking about the basic conservative mantras, Lee, cutting spending and reducing regulations and so forth. And I had to explain to people why I'm not never Trumper and explain to people that the never Trumpers are not never Trump because if he allergy they're not abandoning Trump because he's not conservative enough that has nothing to do. With the reason they oppose him to me that all just seem trivial and trite particularly what we're up against. It was quite obvious. Donald Trump is the only chance we had to stop the forward March of liberalism and everything hatched to it. There wasn't one other Republican maybe Ted Cruz, but he wasn't going to win. There wasn't anybody else that was even going to come close to posing the left-wing Obama agenda status quo that Hillary Clinton stood for there wasn't one person. There wasn't one person. It was going to have the guts to run against Hillary Clinton the way that needed to be run. So that he could win. She would lose. Anyway, I'm up against a break. But I'll play the vita gins stirred disbelief that she got that. Right. But she.

"annenberg" Discussed on How It Is
"My first conversation was with Stacy Smith. She's the founder of the Annenberg inclusion initiative at USC, and she studies the lack of diversity in films and TV Stacey started by walking me through the numbers. Basically. There has been no progress when it comes to gender equality onscreen across almost fifty thousand speaking characters females are less than a third of all speaking parts onscreen. This is a very low bar that has to be crossed in our study a character only has to say one word. So we're really seeing still an inclusion crisis on screen, and that wasn't even the worst of it. A few of the stats. She shared with really just shocking in two thousand seventeen out of one hundred films roughly, a third of featured a girl or woman driving the action. But if we were to think about women of color only, four films out of one hundred had a woman of color at the lead. But we're just seeing. Erasure across groups whether it's people with disabilities. LGBT people of color or girls and women. Well, I knew it was bad. But I had no idea it was that bad. But it turns out the signs of progress. I saw as a TV and movie lover myself were real in fact, the more we spoke, I really realized AC's optimistic. In fact, she's more optimistic than she's ever been. Let's take a look at the top three movies of last year at the US box office wonder woman beauty in the beast in Star Wars all three have something in common. They have a female character really at the heart of the entire story and Stacy's even more optimistic about what's happening on the small screen woods, really fantastic with the explosion. If streaming services there are so many more opportunities, the so I think most folks are looking to television, particularly in this time of of renaissance for storytelling on the small screen. And and that's really. I think where the future is headed. I think there's a lot to be hopeful for and look to and a new day may just be around the corner, which it's even odd for me to say that out loud, but all of these factors are lining up, and it may just be enough to create a sea change. And I was thrilled to hear that. Stacy thinks women are a big part of this change when you have a female director, you're more likely to have girls and women on screen. You're more likely to have girls and women at the center of a story. You're more likely to have racial and ethnic diversity on screen. One of the quickest ways to change in the entertainment industry is to simply hire more female directors. But we need more females show runners right from a variety of different backgrounds telling stories. My next stop was Reese Witherspoon production company where I sat down with the women creating shows with women at the center of the action. We are here today in the beautiful offices of Hello sunshine in his warm and sunny outside. So I definitely feel like I'm in LA today. I'm chatting with Lauren Levy, new Stadler, head of film and TV at Hello, sunshine high. Liz Tig alerted the show runner of casual on Hulu and of the upcoming miniseries. Little fires everywhere, which everyone in my office can't wait for and she's previously written for shows like Nashville, revenge and brothers and sisters. So so excited to have you. Thank you and last, but certainly not lease. We're also joined by Michele trample Spelman the show of are you sleeping, which is now in production will air on apple TV and shells. Also well known for producing the hit show one of my favorites. The good wife. Yes. One of my favorites too. So thank you all so much for being here. Ladies, thank you. Thank you. So I don't know a lot about Hollywood. And I don't know how much our listeners know. But I know a lot of your projects are based on books with do you look for in the story. Like, how do you know? Got a winner.

The Spy Who Dumped Me Director Susanna Fogel Interview
"There was a report out this week from USC Annenberg its annual research into inequality in the top one hundred grossing films of the prior year. Literally, the first line in the thing is the needle is not moving onscreen for females in film. Women are still under-represented on camera and they are underrepresented behind it as well of the one hundred nine people who directed a top movie in two thousand seventeen. Just eight of them were women and even more rare than a female director in Hollywood is a female director doing an action. Comedy movie much less such a film with female leads. Redder director, Susanna Fogel is doing it though her movie out tomorrow starring Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon is called the spy who dumped me. Thanks for coming in. Thanks for having me. Tell me why you wanted to make this movie now shameless opportunism and ain't that the way. I mean. You know, the reason is really that I have always wanted to tell stories about friendships and it used to be that there was a place for for friendship stories in in the cinema. And now it feels like there's a a real binary between awards, drama type fair that you buy ticket to and ten pulse. And then I think I started to shift my own paradigm about was there like Jonah hybrid that I could explore that would make my my very small character stories cinematic. And so that's kind of what prompted this whole experience this. This is actually further down Melissa questions that I wanted to ask you about, but you wrote a piece in time magazine a couple years ago about a little bit about the culture of Hollywood sort of gender wise, but also about the culture of Hollywood mentor was and how you find people who can encourage you to do what you wanna do. And I think I think it's it. I think that's a lesser known part of the story of Hollywood today. Yeah. I mean, I think especially for women, it's it's just been hard and I think it sort of in some ways runs across purposes with the very necessary progress around me too. And that because it's sort of like if you're looking for a mentor had a very experienced director and there just aren't a lot of women who've been doing that for that long. Your your options are older men and and those older men probably rightly so have a certain amount of trepidation about entering into a mentorship relationship with the woman. It's kind of something that people don't talk about enough, I think. Have you to change at all in sixteen years you've been doing this? Yeah, definitely. I have felt that there's a lot of receptiveness to female stories now. I think some of it is a little bit. A lot of it is economically driven and driven by just kind of studios wanting to check that box because now they know they have a woman problem that they need to solve. Yeah. Yeah. I, it's hard to suss out what is real excitement to tell underrepresented stories and and what is kind of just kind of people realizing that they need to kind of catch up to the times. But I think it's your one conversation away with a away from knowing whether it's offense or not. You can just talk to people in know whether they're saying, oh yeah, it's just like a guy's movie, but we'll just put a a famous woman in it, and it will be we'll solve our problem, and which is actually like, let's revisit these narratives because we're sick of the same stories over and over will an and that's just to the spy who don't me right? That's it's, it's named after bond movie in it being build and and being written about as a born type thing, but with women. But it's not because the dynamic that you see on screen is just by definition different between two women than it is between mitt. Yeah. It's interesting to me that that now talking about the movie a lot, I think about the politics and the gender politics so much in a way that maybe I didn't when I was just inside it. It's interesting, you know. So now I'm thinking, you know, there's one..
