Iota could be Category 5 hurricane when it makes landfall

"Hurricane Iota is barreling into Central America with top sustained winds of 155 MPH. Category four Storm is the second powerful hurricane to slam into the region this month. Maria Martin reports from Antigua, Guatemala. Central American governments called for evacuations in areas where the hurricane is expected to make landfall. That's to be later today in Nicaragua, and on Dudas. These are some of the same areas not yet recovered from the destruction wrought by previous storm ETA. Which took some 200 lives, made tens of thousands homeless and cost millions in damages. Maria Martin reporting from

Tennis to return, but not as we know it

"To the tennis podcast. It's not relived. It's not. An oral history, it's not Chris Evert week anymore, unfortunately, although I did very much, enjoy a Chris every week it's. It's a tennis podcast with actual sources, tennis based news and talking points in it, which is a very interesting alien prospects don't adjust your whatever device you're listening to his own This is reality. We're GONNA be talking about the prospect of actual live officials sanctioned tennis at some point in the not distant future. Myself Catholics David Law is in the house pro. I know you know doing it this way. Round David, but usually say something a bit more than a day yeah okay yeah. I'll say that Yeah, IT'S A. Visit to I I. Did you think we were done for the year when we were about? Ago Yeah six weeks ago. Yeah, I've I've always been been adjusting my expectations and thoughts and. Hopes etc sort of at every every turn along the way, but oh, yeah, absolutely. There was a long time when I was pretty certain that we've done for the what about Ema. Absolutely. Yes, ME, too. The future is a thing again. We're talking about it rather than the past. I missed the past. Just come to really enjoy the Paul the past safe, certain ground, and suddenly all the uncertainty and Rumor is back and we're not quite sure where we're heading again. Don't worry. It's still got fourteen shows with the past. Garnsey from Wimbledon as things stand at the moment and barring barring. Ya Cataclysmic Star events. Obviously which we've come to expect in life, we are going to be recording five grams slums worth of daily podcasts to Antigua and see which. One makes me all these conspiracy theories about five gene stuff. Was the coronavirus. Some sort of David Law manufactured events in order to find a way for us to produce. More podcasts in the twenty twenty David has the biggest grin on his face. It's definitely the silver lining that I can find Five slams. Yeah, we are. Explained probably explain why. Let's chase of the news because we've actually got. Live actual tennis news to to hit you with. Today today well, actually, it was more yesterday, wasn't it? Because the US Open and I mean it's been a not brilliantly kept secret right it was. It was leaked to the New York Times. It's been it's been all but confirmed for for a few days right? Yeah, it was clearly coming. Decision had been made an frankly even if you go back to late last week, and the all the plans being talked about by the New York Times and John Wertheim has been writing the story as well for sports illustrated, and then we did. We did a conference call. Would Feliciano Lopez with a? Dozen of the British journalist, because this is of course, fever tree championships week should have been the Queen's Club where Lopez won both singles and doubles titles last year, so he was talking to them a little bit about that, but he also really gave chapter and verse about the player meeting they had last week the. Zoom call now we're all we've all suddenly discovered. What zoom is over the last three months? This video conferencing ten. Days David Law I've done a lot of. but on this particular eighty, a planned meeting one they had four hundred players on, and this was the USDA and the the tools tending the players what the plan was to try to make the US Open plant. This is on the ATP side I leave. It turns out none of Novak. Djokovic handed out Roger Federer were on this call, but anyway the had four hundred people on it. And Lopez gave us chapter and verse on on this This media conference about what was said, and the lengths that they were going to to, and also that he was assured he was absolutely sure that it was going to go ahead. The US Open is going to happen. He said he also said it should happen. In my view, it's time the tennis to get rolling because. Bear in mind. He's not just tennis player these days He's a tournament director. He is going to be. Fronting one of the events that will take place in the remaining months of the tennis calendar. That's Madrid. He's the tournament director there, but he had a pretty stark message for the players in that call that we are going to have to accept less prize money. We're going to have to get used to that. We're GONNA have to basically stop being so precious what he was saying and understand be realistic about. The year we're in the climate. We're in the situation we're in

Protecting your digital privacy during a protest

"So we've all seen the footage of protesters clashing with police, but beyond the fiscal confrontation police another law enforcement officials are using a lot techniques to monitor and identify protesters. Give me a rundown on what they're doing yet. So police have had tools for a very long time, and they used things like IAMs eye catchers, a more simple name for that would be sting rays which are tools that serve as fake cell phone power. So when you're when you're texting somebody when you're calling somebody, it would connect to them rather than. Than, connecting to whatever service provider that you have, and they would be able to use that to intercept all your calls, and all your text message that you're sending they also have been using tools like Gio fence warrants where they can send requests to police to tech companies, or they can send requests to sell service providers and say we want. Data on all the mobile phones that were in this specific area. Can you please provide that kind of information and Google and companies like t mobile at and t horizon? They have complied with these requests because they're legally obligated to. Other tools include facial recognition that they use to identify people in protests. There was another tool used during protests in Baltimore where they used. A company called Geo Fida with social media surveillance to basically help identify protesters. That were demonstrating again. Police brutality, so you? You actually wrote about Gio. Fence warrants yesterday, and it's an interesting thing. I don't think people really understand. How specific or how narrow is that geographic target that they can get? Can you get them to square block, too? Like a ten square feet patch of land like how specific talking about so these you fence warrants to threat is more about the fact that. They don't have to be specific at all more so versus how specific it can get so a case in Virginia that I had found, they narrowed it down to within the range of like just a bank or the block that a bank was on because they were trying to figure out who was behind this bank robbery, and they didn't have a name they didn't have. Any details about what the person looks like or anything like that, but they. They knew that happened at this bank at this time, so they send us warned request to Google that says we're looking for data on all the phones that was in this area during this hour, but the problem is. Is that with these warrants? You can have it, you know the. The size of entire neighborhood these are this is essentially a dragnet surveillance kind of thing. Where imagined the non tech? Like version of this right? It would basically be cops knocking on every single door, being able to go in and search every single home and say and and seeing you know hey, where you at this bank at this time that kind of thing. That happened in colonial times. I was called a general warrant. And that's part of the reason why we have the fourth amendment now say you need probable cause, and you need a specific reason to search someplace, and that was understood for a very long time with search warrants GIO fence warrants. It seems like you know because the law hasn't really caught up with technology. They're able to just do these widespread searches and gathered data on on. An entire range of people there are so many cases where you know innocent people have had their data swept up by these searches just because they've just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Well, and it's not very difficult for police obtained warrants right? It's not difficult at all from what we've seen in other cases so out of Minnesota. The Minnesota public radio did an investigation on this where judges will sign off on this within with like just looking at it for like five ten minutes, or so the another issue with that being that it's hard for to visualize something when you just get the latitude and longitude so these war requests. They don't show they don't show like. Oh, we're looking for something in this area. They'll say something like we're looking for data on devices between the coordinates of negative, one, hundred and ten. Latitude and positive one hundred five launched your. I don't know where that is. That could be in the middle of the ocean for all I know, but. That's the point like you. When you hear something like that, you don't know how large that whole area is. And you kind of just an judges have just signed off on warrants like that well, and you also mentioned in your store today. The DA is now authorized mantra protesters. What are the implications with that? So th Buzzfeed News? Take a memo. I'm from the Justice Department basically signing off or the DA to do covert surveillance, which basically means they're allowed. They have a blank check to basically secretly spy on George Floyd protesters. Now the argument from the Justice Department has been. You know were doing this kind of surveillance to look for riders and members of Antigua and things like that, you know the people that are causing damage during these peaceful protests. Outside of police, and the consequences of the being do blanket surveillance means that you now have the full force of the federal government. Able to do secret surveillance, and that includes things like. Catchers. But not just at the scene of a of what are these? Protests are because they have planes that can fly around and just gathered data on thousands of people. All at once, and you think about the surveillance tools at the NSA

Multicloud MySQL with Jiten Vaidya and Anthony Yeh

"More about the networking challenges for implementing a multi cloud database. So we used eight engy. Cpa's support VPN Address and BJP outing so appealing. Aws engineer was fairly straightforward but Uzun and support the BJP protocol. So we couldn't use the being raised so as we had to manually set up. The routes cleared firewall rules and forward the traffic from Manu Be Glaspie in so it was basically Im- by an metrics of like we had three brothers and four regions in each cloud provider. All with each other. Can you explain what? Vp appearing as BBC painting is basically it just? It's done that allows lousy route traffic from one in one cloud provider another club. Reuter BBC meaning virtual private cloud so the communication between two clouds between getting to to VPS's to talk to one another. Explain a little more detail why that was difficult. It's easier to route packets within the network boundary of a cloud provider. But now you're sending packets across loud providers and that's why you need. Vpn Gateways and be bit outing. I see and did you have to write your own. Vpn Gateway to route the traffic from one cloud provider to another Juicy support the Ajay. Bbn Get race but Azoulay doesn't so we needed to setup the routes manually grier Rules and forward the traffic from Amanullah Parisian. Ib to the classic VPN. How else do the different cloud? Providers differ from one another significantly. Their Communities Implementations Defer the maturity of the Coordinated Implementations Bicarbonate Implementations. I mean they're hosted community services have different maturity. Some of them work as advertised and some of them. We have to put in scaffolding to make sure that we are working on there. Flaking seizure like the Kuban eighties is a service platforms on the different cloud providers. Yeah by blood is the best I think is pretty good too it. We had problems with. How does the failure domain of Vitesse Change when it goes multi cloud so one of the previous episodes? We talked about how the tasks running on Cooper netties in a single data center can recover from failures handle failures. But I'm sure. The failure domain becomes much more complex when you have multi cloud scenarios. Talk me through. Some of the failure cases that you've solved for right with us. Conceptually affiliated domain is a cell and we mapped the cell to coordinate is cluster in a region in glower in we have sixteen different cells and each cell corresponds to urbanize cluster in a region in the cloud. So we have cloudy different cells. Four regions Antigua Bells outs so conceptually. Cell is the federal domain invictus. And the same is true in this declawed. Derision world even the cloud providers tend to think of vision as failure domain. It's a set of computing resources. I mean Ability zones which is yet another failure domain. Which is slightly more granular. That's how we deploy when we are deployed Vidana single region but when you have deployed across legions been deployed across cloud riders. We tend to think of a region in a given cloud as a unit of domain Anthony. You want to add anything. I would add that. Even in the cross cloud or multi region case we do still define each availability zone within a region as its own failure domain. So for example if you tell us to launch end replicas in region cloud one. We're going to do our best to spread out across the availability zones within that region. Maybe talk through the resolution of a failure that could occur. Let's say like I'm doing a right to the database instance on the cloud that's accepting rights and so I do a right and somewhere in this right. The entire cloud provider fails. What's the process of recovering from that failure? That cloud provider has received the right. How do the other clients or how did the other databases on the clouds identified? That failure has occurred. There are different types of failure scenarios that we recognize one is kind failure and one is bland failure. What plan failure is that? You know that this region is going to go away at one point in time for maintenance for whatever reasons that's harrys hundred British in a straightforward fashion where failure your bastard out of that region in either another region in the same cloud provider. Auden do originally different. The second which is more problematic is if it's a catastrophic failure with very little warning a whole region goes away. Your master wasn't a governor discussed which was in that region. So let's see what will happen rate. I is not the right itself will fail. The second thing that will happen is that we have a global at city cluster with members in different regions and if there was a member region when I say city parking lot at apologies so the member in that region will go away the second thing that might happen but because are multiple members which cleared that Corum. Today will still continue to respond and our operator detects that the master has gone. Antony will be able to explain it better than I do. I guess picking up. Richardson left off. You know he made sure to talk about the fact that we still have the ability to read and write to this at CD topology server and that's important for ensuring that vitesse can do this automatic fail over in a safe way while taking account for the fact that one region might be unresponsive. So there's a couple of different train offs you can make as a user you can choose different trade offs so one for example is you could say. I WANNA do. I let me think across clouds across regions. And if you do that then you can know that before you were told. Any transaction was committed it has been replicated to a different region. So if you sign up for that setting it means that you won't lose any transactions that reported to clients has committed the downside of that the reason it's a trade off because that means every right you have to wait for the year round trip to Go to a different region and comeback in report that it was acknowledged so the other option that I used have is to say. I'm going to roll the dice and say you know. If an entire region goes down I will abandon any transactions that got orphaned in that region and repairing somewhere else while saying you know if that region comes back up all kind of take a look at what transactions were orphaned in replay them as necessary and this rule choices actually the way that we chose to run at Youtube so we only did within a region or given cell and we said if it ever happens that we have to continue somewhere else where you will figure out how to replay transactions. During the time I was in this never happened and I think Subaru also has said it didn't happen while he was there because what we saw much more frequently was if not that an entire region suddenly disappears. It was more that you have degradation in our region wrapping up getting worse and worse. And so what we did is we just had policies in place to say as soon as the degradation gets passed. Some facial we will preemptively shift our masters over to a different region and that might be slow. Because maybe there's a network packet loss or things like that but we were kind of babysit that wait for it and then once out of that region we say okay we're safe. We have avoided the POSSIBILITY OF TRANSACTIONS BEING ORPHANED. So those are two different offs. You can make in a condition where databases get out of SYNC. You might need to have a voting procedure to determine a quorum. Can you give an example of when that might occur and how databases would communicate in that scenario to resolve an inconsistency so the way we run our system we don't use voting and according to figure that out my sequel has this concept of GD idea global transaction ninety as Antony described you have a master in multiple replicas and different might have replicated who are different extent? Also if you have semis? Implication turned on what that means. Is that before? The master says that something was successfully committed that the data who it read that particular transaction is guaranteed to be applica- somewhere else in logs. So all that needs to happen is that it needs to get over the network and it needs to get into the really log. It doesn't need to be materialized into the target database the latency required for that is Lloyd than actually getting into and into the database. Long Story Short. What we need to do is to talk to all the mccaslin figure out which -LICA- has progressed to the highest judy. Id which has jetties which is as close to the master as possible and the Jews that as the new master so this is something that is done post-facto after the master has gone down at mark for the transaction. So that's how we allied a split brain with semi sink turned on. We don't pay the cost of figuring this out for a transaction. We just do this at the title fellow or semi Turned on that make sense. It does and I'd like to change the conversation to actual production deployments. So have you put the multi cloud database into production for any particular users? Who are the people that would want to switch to this more aggressively from just a single data center? We have trials. Nobody is actually using it in production yet but I was telling you about this company in Japan who is interested in it. We are talking to them. They have created an account. I don't exactly at what point the trial is. Somebody like them would be very interested in it. We also have some conversations going on with government agencies early conversations who are interested in this and we destroyed this out about two weeks ago so but leaders yet totally zooming out talking about the business more. Broadly you've had some large customer deployments that you've worked with worked slack and square and hubs spot and Bolat of other companies and the overall business of planet scale is around this control plane that you can sell and license. How does the control plane that you sell? Compared to what the Open Source Vitesse model contains so let me just clarify that. Slacks squid Who HAVE DONE. The guest is for open source with us. We do provide support to slack and squad sport. We don't have a relationship with and what you said is exactly right. I mean we do want to provide vitas support for any company that wants with support because we want As Open source project we as successful as possible and we adhere to help the community. But that's not how we are going to scale the company so what we have built is basically the technology that we have built is this operator which allows us to create an API on top of coordinates that allows us to databases safely in single or multiple Clusters right that is like that. We have built. We have actually taken our operator and we have made a subset of that open source we will be doing an announcement about that etc pretty soon. And it's a pretty full fledged open-source Planet scale operator that will allow you to run with us well and safely in the cluster. It just doesn't have some features related to teams and Cross Cluster Federation and so on that Anthony talked about that our planet's guilty be operator has so the operator version that we use to run our own clusters we call that panicle debut so what we are going to scale the company on is this database of service that we are running as planet scale. Db What is coming is a multiple ways to apply planets. Guilty one of them recalled. Byu Okay which is your own Kubler.

Warriors Women: The Hart Sisters

"Month we're talking about warriors as encyclopedias. Manica is created by two sisters. I am extra excited about today's episode talking about two antique when writers and educators whose work challenged the patriarchal order. These two sisters are believed to be the first African Caribbean writers to be published meet Elizabeth and an heart or the heart sisters. Elizabeth Hart was born in Seventeen. Seventy two in Antigua an and followed suit in seventeen seventy three. He grew up in a wealthy household with slaves though their parents were freed slaves themselves. The sisters had access to education and help to teach their younger siblings after their mother died in seventeen thousand five the following year booth. Sisters were baptized methodists. Their religion would play a huge part in their activism. The sisters cited Christian theology as a rationale for quality and they argued that women should be able to participate in holy work in addition to men and Elizabeth both married white. Men who were active participants in antique was early Methodist Even Jellicoe movement and married a preacher named John. Gilbert Elizabeth married an evangelical teacher by the name of Charles tweets. Their relationships were not received well by white society as injury marriages were uncommon frowned upon still all signs point to the sisters having happy relationships with their partners and Elizabeth's faith is a significant part of their writing both wrote histories of methodism Antigua and also finished her husband's memoir on his life and Elizabeth wrote poems about slavery and her spirituality. Elizabeth was more outspoken about emancipation than her sister. Her attack on slavery was also connected to her religious devotion. She believed that abolishing slavery would restore the faith which had been tainted by oppression and injustice. The sisters profoundly believed in the power of Education. They advocated this slave should be educated emphasizing. They were intelligent in eighteen. O One Elizabeth founded a private school and Saint John's a few years later. The sisters opened the first Sunday School in the Caribbean is true for the school to accept people of all genders and races and even hold school meetings in the dark so the students wouldn't feel ashamed of disparities in their clothing in eighteen. Sixteen and Elizabeth founded the female Refuge Society but organization just orphans and women. The Society Fed clothed and supported the hungry and for the sisters were passionate and outspoken. About lifting up the voices and lives of black women and wrote about her disdain for prostitution and her belief that it stemmed from the institution of slavery while Elizabeth wrote about sexual abuse and its role in keeping black women from social mobility. Elizabeth died in eighteen thirty three and died a year later. They were both sixty one years old. When they passed away the heart sisters work impacted discourse about methodism and slavery and their actions affected and improve the lives of many around them

That's where the government is Barbuda's flat flat like a penny with just fifteen hundred residents. It's the kind of island where wild donkeys.

Bob Yuda when this is Natalia. John Calls her. Hey go take out new. And they both got land for their homes. The way everyone else in Barbuda's gets it people just go cut what they want. Clear it and stop bill. Just take a piece of land and be like okay. There's my this is my land. That's so that's so. We usually do perfect. No money no money not even taxes not even taxes then even like a permit fee nothing like really zero zero dollars zero zero dollars free free. No paperwork no lease no title Bob.

The entire island was made up of five hundred. Enslaved people at its peak and one white manager and his family and when slavery was abolished and the white manager finally left. There were no white people on the island. Just formerly enslaved people so they stayed so the people are left alone left. They're they're sorta live happy. Held the whole island in common. That's what it's called and no one ever came in and said but wait wait. You need property. Titles at some point Barbadians do start leasing.

It is a myth that they own the land but there is a law that parliament the Antiguan. Barbian government passed. That says I just want to read. The the first sentence says enact to confirm that all land in Barbuda's is owned in common by the people of Barbuda right so so it was a dangling piece of legislation he repeals. The law tells Barbadians that you have been living on for free all these years new plan. We're going to sell it to you for one dollar eastern Caribbean. About thirty seven cents.

Discussing the Show Masks (Spoiler Alert!)

"It struck me as somebody that is is pretty well versed in the in the graphic novel. The absolutely have done something like I say that extends stems from that work so you had this almost impossible task. You had to adapt in a sense. Something that you love and respect and probably idolize is getting a lot of people to yes but also then had to depart from it completely and make it something different. It had to be of it and apart from it. How did you negotiate that very carefully? Also completely totally haphazardly. I mean I think that it was a combination of the energy of a of a bowl in China shop and and then trying to catalog everything that you knocked over and broke so that you could replace it and both things had to happen simultaneously because I think that we went in With a high degree of fear and concern and delicate nece and then very quickly we were just like fuck all of that. Let's just go nuts. And then you had vacillate between those polls and the show sort of happened in the space where we were moving in between the polls because our job storytellers is to make something feel authentic to make could feel real and I wanted this television experience. Because it's not a comic book where you're turning the pages where illustrated cartoon characters I wanted to feel real real and authentic at the same time there's some true ridiculousness happening around the the fringes of this so the first thing that we did and And when I say we at the very beginning of this thing it was this guy. Jeff Jensen I and Jeff and I jeff was a reporter for entertainment weekly remember would write these crazy theories about lost cost under the pseudonym doc Jensen not not quite as soon because his last name is Johnson. Doc in front yes. He doesn't fraud easily easily from my understanding is he did not hold a doctorate in anything. Maybe lost in any way he and I collaborated on tomorrow and and did a lot of world building for that Disney thing but when the third time they came to me and said. Do you WanNa do watchmen and I started kind of feel the beginnings of a glimmer of what it would be about. I texted Jeff and I said I have two questions. The first question is like should there. Be a watchman TV show and then the second is should I do it and I think he responded depends ends and depends and then I was like yeah would you. Would you WanNa do it together. And then he came over and He was the first person that I really bounced a lot of these ideas off of and he and I put together. This list of adjectives A like almost like a recipe list of these are adjectives that we use to describe. The original watchmen. C'mon and if our version if we can check these same adjectives against it almost like a mad libs then than we maybe we earned the name and the first word on the list was original And so now there's this paradox were presented with which is. It's an adaptation of this thing. That already exists. How do you you make it original and I think the gaming of that paradox was still thinking about? Did we game but like that was really the challenge in front of us which was like how does this thing feel like. It's it's it's watchmen. But at the same time it could only feel like it's watchmen if it's taking huge risks when and it feels is like you. You're feeling nervous while you're watching it like A. I don't know what's happening and I don't like it and I don't know where this is going to go next and I'm a little bit scared and not it just scared where it's GonNa go narrative Lee but scared that it could jump the shark. When I read watchmen I could tell you? Twenty instances in over the course of those twelve issues shoes just took my breath away in terms of like. You aren't allowed to do that. I can't believe that just happened like my heart would be racing as I was reading. Thank those issues and to to to try to replicate that emotional sensation for the TV show. That's what we were chasing. Sometimes a we succeeded needed other times. Not but that was the brass ring we were all reaching for. So what we're talking about in many ways is the tone of watchmen and its ambition and and it's fearlessness. And when we begin your series right out of the gates it does seem like you hit those well. At least you hit the ambition and you hit the fearlessness. If watchmen the graphic novel was a meditation perhaps on the morality of heroism. It seems pretty clear from the beginning of your show so that your show is about race period the end it is about race. I want to ask you how much this emphasis on race from. The start was away for you to say not only. This show is the show about race. But I need you to know right now. It is about race Yeah I'M A I. I apologize in advance because I'm not really able to to answer that question articulately yet. And in many ways this my inability to articulate answer that question was replicated in the writer's room on a repeated basis and led to an incredible incredible of conversations. Both difficult in insertive revelatory of certainly from from my standpoint. But what I'll say. Is that the most difficult question and I think that a lot of writers have to answer. Where do you get your ideas from or what? What is a moment of inspiration like what's the flash point and and a lot of the man's to the the question the same way that I will which is like something just happens internally with that just like sort of clicks and slides into place and then at least I feel compelled to get it out out and most of the time for me? Those ideas don't like happen in the shower whereas like Oh this would be a cool idea for television show. It happens because I've read something or I'm listening running to something or I'm emotionally affected by something and essentially what was happening in my life was as the leftovers was ending and I was starting to kind of feel the panic of if I am not entirely sure that I'm ever GonNa WanNa do this again. I'm I'm not having any ideas. In watchmen is just coming at me for the third time. But it's watchmen and it's the you know for me. That's the you know. It's the Rosetta Stone. It's where all began for me. Maybe not the Rosetta Stone. Do More like the black monolith in two thousand one you know where stars yeah. It's it's full of stars quite literally perfect and and an intimidating and right at the time that they asked me the third time because that because they they'd they'd asked me two times is prior. You know once probably two thousand eleven just a couple years after Zack Snyder's movie and then again maybe in two thousand thirteen or twenty fourteen and now I'm thinking it's like twenty seventeen and and I'm placing this time around the time that Charlottesville is happening and I read between the world and many Tallahassee coaches book and I'll I'm just going to be honest with you I read the book because every single white progressive liberal in the in show business was like they say like this. If you read between the world have you read it like like the shame just like you so it's just like you have to read it. You really have to read it and so I was like this. Sounds like an astonishing piece of writing and it and it was when and when I read that. I also read case for reparations which was an essay that he wrote in the Atlantic a couple years? Probably before and in case for reparations which completely. It's both wildly intuitive. It's nothing that you don't already know but the way that it is written in the story that Mr Coates tells is like just changes ages changed the way that I saw the world. In in that essay he mentioned Black Wall Street Tulsa Twenty one and the way that he wrote about it it was just I I wanna say just three or four sentences or just a paragraph as you say it felt like the destruction of a world to me and at that time also Black Panther hadn't come out yet but it had been announced that Ryan Kugler was going to do it in Tallahassee. Coach was writing Black Panther and I was thinking about what Kanda and I was thinking that. If we're Kanda actually existed in the the real world if there was this place of African American exceptionalism I guess in the case of Kanda African exceptionalism but a place that we're only black people lived and they were the best scientists and it was utopia. If white people found out about this place they would destroy it. They burned to the ground. So all of those ideas were kind of like swirling around in my head and then I bought. This book called the burning about Tulsa twenty-one because because of having read and I was just astonished by this story on every single level most of all because I had never heard about it and I felt shame and embarrassment and I would talk to other people like I talked to people of Color and they go. Oh yeah and I talked two white people and they go. What and then I'd start explaining of? This is what happened and I would see them. Start to get feel embarrassed. And then and then disconnect which is what we do when we feel like? We're supposed to know something we don't know it and so all of that stuff was kind of swirling around in my head and the fundamental question that we were asking about doing watchmen is should we do it. And if so why now. And so I- reflected back on. The original watchmen set in one thousand. Nine hundred five of the came out in eighty six and although it takes place in an alternate version of of America it was dealing with a a nuclear standoff handoff between the USSR. America and and it's counting down towards inevitable nuclear destruction on both sides. That's what the that's what the heroes are solving for. It feels else that gets a murder mystery but unbeknownst to us what's really going on the answer to the murder mystery. He has done it is someone is actually trying to save the world world And and I was like so what. What's the big cultural anxiety? Now when you close the comic book and it stays with you and the answer was says. There's a reckoning happening in America as it relates to race. It's not to say that that reckoning wasn't happening during the civil rights movement where it wasn't happening in the the eighties or the nineties but right now as especially after Charlottesville and I remember very specifically Craig like when Charlottesville happened that there was this rhetoric that was happening around where people kept saying. I can't believe they're not wearing masks. They're not wearing masks anymore. The white supremacists are just out there and we can see their faces in shocking shocking. And so that was happening at the same time that. Hbo was saying do you. WanNa do watchmen show masks and I was like what are masks. You know like what happens when and you mix a mask with the administration of the law. That's the central idea of watchmen and then the KKK. Wears masks. And I'm starting to see protesters like Antigua's wary mass. This was long before Hong Kong. But it's like this idea of like covering your face is covering your face a justification for protecting in yourself or are you doing something that you probably shouldn't be or both and then all of that kind of went into the mix at the heart of it in the center of it. Is this remarkable the character that is not a carryover from watchmen but your invention Angela. Apr Sister

Egypt on track to reduce food loss and waste by 50 per cent in five years: FAO

"This is Matt wells at you and us about one third of all food, which has grown in the Middle East and North Africa is lost or wasted. According to the UN food and Agriculture Organization FAO in Egypt that adds up to an estimated fifty kilograms of food per person per year. According to you and figures most of this food lost from the farm to the table rather than wasted at the consumer level that results in loss of nutrition, which is alarming for a country, which is facing already. High levels of malnutrition says the agency governments in the region have pledged to reduce food loss and waste by fifty percents by twenty twenty four and FAO along with the Italian government is training farmers and wholesalers to reduce food loss and ensure greater food security as a nice Houghton reports from Egypt downtown kale. The Bill is full market is high of activity hundreds of tomatoes accurately stacked in foot. Creates ahead of men assessing the process the seller bacon. Them to make a bit daft, plenty of tomatoes to go around after Egypt is a major producer of tomatoes. But for every one thousand kilograms of tomatoes produced industry did in Egypt five hundred and sixty grams is lost a wasted. That's more than half new production, huge amount of food that would otherwise be available for consumption. Engine rule. Two thirds of all food laws in ways happens during them food production and distribution stages. The resents behind his losses wrench from inefficient food production to poor technologies and infrastructure. Infamous major producer of grapes. Q? Good them any in Michelle. Yeah. Yes. Stella mussa. He's an expert on grape cotija at a fait. Would I be an shackling be good the Nala ally? Farmers fist many problems that result in grip losses. For example. The groups might develop problems that only appear at harvesting things such as tightly compressed clusters of grapes as a result of rotting moldy, and this color, grapes, or grapes with the wrong sugar, content or size are all causes of creep loss. That's why if you is helping to build to food processing units in northern Egypt in Bangalore and Suker Antigua dare it trends cooperative in grip handling processing in distribution practices as well. As order I control methods. Title. We tried to identify the weak spots in the grip food production chain that resulting these losses as fuck. Fuck the training scheme. Also has long-term goals has after the initial training. We need a recommendations that as many farmers as possible could exit the train. So what followed was a course in training. The trainers about twenty five agriculture engineers in the region were trained and the now continue to train other farmers in the region spreading the knowledge foreign light. Greg Raby took part in one of FAO's training courses, learner, talent amusement. Madonna lynton. Was. The forty three year hold grapegrower leans in the village of Tiba about one hundred kilometers northwest of Cairo's should be enter recently. He was struggling to make ends meet. But he says his learned a lot I learned to avoid overthrows -ation by using the right amount of risers. We avoided losses on the farm. I also learn about proper method of spring and recommended amount to use depending on the condition of the vine another thing I learned was how to kick rates properly and how to get the right grape sites. The sugar any plans to pass on this knowledge to other farmers in his community. I want to transfer the knowledge I've learned to others, for example, you might find educated farmer with the specific concerns, I can advise him. If I see him doing something wrong on his farm or Ciprian incorrectly at can guide him with what I know what I've learned. That food production may toads are not the only coast for food loss in there. Also economic factors explaining food loss such as price fluctuations. Mafuta runs the business that manages our cure waste. He buys to maters from syndrome to may to cooperate is setup by FAO. The market price for tomatoes is lower than the cost of harvesting them. Farmers won't harvest tomatoes. So they lose a large amount of produce. This has a significant impact on smallholder farmers who not only dominate Egypt's would production, but also accounts for last portion of the country's poor which is thirty five percents of the population of how. So we try to have farmers to use losses by setting price levels. We say if the market price of tomatoes falls below one Egyptian pound per kilo than tomatoes have to be dried. If the price is more than one pound day can sell them on the market. Another bonus is that when the price of a product is fixed to farmers end up producing good quality produce because they are sure that their production costs will be covered. And that they will not have any losses. We tell you. A few plans to build the syndrome to me to facility in Bongo soco in other facilities, specialized Indra in grapes is currently under construction into Nubia area. It's hoped that these two initiatives more farmers like Greg grow Raby can help reduce food loss in waste energy. And at the same time boost their livelihoods.

Thousands Of Central American Migrants Stuck In Tijuana, Waiting To Seek Asylum

"President Trump says there's a humanitarian and national security crisis on the US Mexico border. This idea of a border emergency can be traced back to the reports that began a few months ago of a caravan of Central American migrants, traveling up through Mexico to the US many of those migrants are are now stuck in Tijuana, Mexico, just south of the border from San Diego. And that's where NPR's John Burnett joins us from now. Hi, John airy, we've heard about thousands of migrants stuck in Tijuana. What are you seeing? There will you know, this is ground zero of what the president considers the migrant crisis. I mean, you've got central Americans who are waiting in all the major Mexican border cities batik wanna is where you really see them. We started out with somewhere between five thousand six thousand migrants who'd come up into caravan. The numbers are definitely down to perhaps two thousand three thousand. Migrants. Now that are still here some gone back to Honduras some have been deported by Mexican authorities. Some have crossed into the US to request asylum, and then others, you know, crossed the border illegally. They climbed the fence, and they were arrested and instill others went to other Mexican border cities where there's less of a weight to cross. So, you know, the the the numbers are trickling down. So the numbers are down. But still a lot of people for t- quantity to deal with. How is the city copen? You know, it's just it's chaotic what we've seen today. There's more than a dozen shelters here, the big one L Bader atoll, you know, it's it's the best organized by the federal government. And then you have all these others. We went to one that was run by the and Bassedas of Christ evangelical church where you had people a leading intense inside the church sanctuary. But outside was this squalid drainage ditch with hogs all rooting around and children around they're playing and yet people in Tijuana are trying to help the migrants. And so you have these these these shelters that have just sprung up in houses, and with different do or groups, and with churches, and really you just get this sense that they they still don't know what to do with this crush of people who are here. What about Americans you're right over the border from San Diego. Do you see many US people? They're trying to help out. You do there's lots of volunteers. They're over here. They're offering legal advice. They're bringing food. They're bringing medicine summer bringing you know, knitting needles and yarn for them, you know, give them something to do while they're waiting. I mean this morning they called number one thousand six hundred twenty seven that's how many migrant families have gotten into the US to ask for asylum in there. Still many many more waiting weeks. What are you hearing from the migrants themselves? You've spoken to. Well, these are these are single men these are families their grandmothers, and you know, they've been here waiting for so long some for six to eight weeks, and they seem to be, you know, just very frustrated. Some are still waiting in line for their numbers to be called and others are deciding to take jobs here in Tijuana. There's a a labor shortage, and so some are working as a as Masons others are going to work in these fabrication plants Mckee LA's, and then still others have decided to bring caught and Muto to jump the wall. And so they go to this area where they can crawl over one of the lower fences where they're promptly arrested by the US border patrol. But they know that that's a rash decision that they're going to be detained if they do that. And so many want to wait, but they're really getting frustrated here. Yeah. The times are so long just in our last thirty seconds. President Trump last month announced a policy called remain in Mexico where asylum seekers. Would have to wait in Mexico for an immigration hearing in the US any sign of that taking shape. You know that policy has been suspended. Ari? I spoke to a senior government official familiar with border security plans, and because of the complexities of the diplomacy between Mexico in the US. They are not returning immigrants seeking asylum to Mexico to await their immigration cases. The ones who are going to the border largely are being allowed to ask for asylum and then being either detained or or released. All right. A notice to appear and immigration court NPR's, John Burnett Antigua. Thanks much. You bet. All right.
