"Open was sort of infatuated with trying to make sure I think the men's semifinals were on both on the Saturday or something and it just didn't work. It was felt more of a marketing ploy as opposed to like is this in the play as best benefits? And I think sort of manic Monday is seen the sort of extinction same sort of fate, I think, as well. And I think I think fans are more for it. I think it makes sense having more tennis on a weekend. It just feels a bit. It feels a bit like of a bygone era having the sub day, the Sunday off. So yeah, I'm glad glad to see that in place and got me a little bit excited about the fact that we're going to have kind of tennis across the whole two weeks in 2022 for Wimbledon. Indeed, and the return of the queue. So watch the space. You can deal with the queue. I'm not about that life, but you know. Yeah, you who have never queued. How would you call yourself a tennis fan? Maybe you'll drag you'll drag me to the queue next something. We live updates from Joel and the kid. But the Australian open have announced also some news. And that is, it's looking likely that there will be a vaccination mandate for all the tennis players coming in to the country. The premiere of Victoria said that he doesn't think that it's likely that a tennis player will be able to get a Visa to come into play unless they are vaccinated. If they weren't vaccinated, they would probably have to do the quarantine again. So either way, if your tennis player, you're going to need to be vaccinated or you're going to have to be prepared to do the quarantine, which obviously, a lot of players found incredibly difficult loss, what this year. So obviously, a lot of who are about who hasn't has not been vaccinated, especially Novak Djokovic, has he had it done yet. He's not wanting to reveal his vaccination status. It may not matter. We may never know, because it may not be needed. You know, for the tournament, although I suppose, if we find out that he's doing two weeks of quarantine, we could probably guess. You know, if it does come to the fact that they will allow players in if they're unvaccinated, but they'll have to do the quarantine. So yes, it's all still up in the air, but it does look likely that they are going to have some sort of protocol in for the slam. Yeah, it's a funny one, because we've kind of conflicting and well, we're not conflicting information. It's just like information from different sources and although the Victoria premiere of saying you're going to need to be vaccinated in order to play the Australian open. We did have a leak that was kind of reported by Ben rothenberg on Twitter about the fact that WTA players have been told that unvaccinated players will be allowed to play, but they must do so with a 14 day hotel quarantine, which I imagine would be like like before. So it's a bit interesting to see obviously the WTA players are getting fed disinformation from the WTA and that makes sense. But it sounds like potentially further down the line, Victoria, the state of Victoria might have other plans that supersede, I think, whatever the ATP and WTA say. And I think that is the biggest question mark at the moment. I don't think the WTA in the ATP they can offer this kind of guidance in terms of what they want to happen. But it feels like whatever whatever the state of Victoria want to do is what's going to happen and that would be applied to the event of the Australian open. And I think that's where the biggest question mark and uncertainty I think is for players at the moment. Because if that does happen, then yeah, it does sound like you're either vaccination, double vaccinated or you're not or you're not playing. And then players will have to make a decision in terms of whether they decide to play the Australian open. And I think that will be that will be a big moment in terms of understanding who is who is ready to commit and say, okay, yeah, I know this is a Grand Slam. I want to play it. Therefore, although I've had these reservations, maybe about vaccinations in the past, I want to play tennis, therefore, I'm going to do it. And maybe players like, for example, sablin, who's had it and said, you know, yeah, it wiped me off the floor for four days. Maybe she's going to have different thoughts about it. But yeah, it's going to be it's going to be interesting. It's coming. It's not going to be something I hope it's not something it won't be something that will be last minute. You know, plays are going to need time for these vaccinations to happen. You know, what it's like 6 weeks, 7 weeks to get both jabs and having the appropriate delay period between the two. But yeah, it feels like a bit of a drawer at the baby but given that sorts of updates we're getting from all the different sources. Indeed, and we'll have to just wait for further announcements, but at the moment, yeah, that's the situation. So I guess there's so much speculation. Who hasn't has no idea vaccine? And fair enough, you don't have to post about it, Bragg or post a selfie of yourself, you know, getting the vaccine, but, you know, simply enough, you know, should it be a state secret? Everyone asks, I don't know, but we'll wait and follow you to see what news we get. I mean, Kim, the other thing as well is that this could set precedent for grand slams as well. You know, we're seeing we're seeing, for example, in the MBA in the basketball, there's a player I think for the I think for Brooklyn who doesn't, he's a very good player, but he doesn't want to get vaccinated because of the NBA saying you must be vaccinated in order to play. He's just kind of sitting out the tournament and if this is potentially could be a precedent, then I don't know. Maybe that would be examples of players having to sit out in the tour. I know that might be quite drastic, and I wouldn't expect that, but yeah, we'll have to wait and see in terms of how next season starts. We're still not through winter yet. And we've got the Transylvania open coming up and that's been told that it is going to be playing played without lots of fans. So I think there's lots of still lots of time for things to happen and lots of different countries. So yeah, it's definitely one to keep an eye on. Absolutely. So let's look at what events are happening this week. As we mentioned, we've got Vienna, where we've got a lot of the top names. We've got sitz baths and severe over there. We've got sinner, you know, recent Antwerp champion. We've got Matteo bertini, FAA, Casper rouge, Schwartzman. This is, yeah, quite ridiculous draw, actually, it's not really any easy matches. Except, I think you've pointed out Dennis Novak versus Jan Luca mager, which is perhaps the easiest of the first round picks. But yeah, we've got a lot of title winners from this year in the draw. And obviously, you know, we've got the likes of Casper Ruud, the annex inner, her cash, all going for that kind of final spot. Also also cam nori, final spot in Turin. So all up for grabs. Andy Murray has also been in action already as we're recording this against and he's just had a bad question..
"antwerp" Discussed on The Passing Shot Tennis Podcast
"So there's a lot up for grabs and sinner is one of these players that, you know, we all guns blazing, trying to get that spot. Yeah, great weeks in, you know, he just continues to impress. And I mean, other notable events from this week in Antwerp, that Andy Murray, Francis TFO match. Did you still watch it? Oh my God, that was an unbelievable war of attrition. It was such a fantastic match. Obviously, I'm an Andy Murray fan, but yeah, what was it? Three hours, three hours, 42 minutes. 45 minutes, yeah, I think it was the longest longest best of three set match on the tour this year. I think it was a first for Andy Murray in the sense of he's never played a best of three set match with three tie breaks, which you consider all the things he's accomplished in his career. That was still at a first pin, which seems incredible. But it was just such a fantastic match paid in the right spirit. There was a nice little man hug at the end as well, all the crowd were loving it. I was sort of a bit sad that TFA had to kind of go off course the loser. But, you know, you could see afterwards. He did he did a really nice kind of Instagram post, just kind of commenting on the match commenting on Andy Murray. It was just such a fantastic watch. And you know, it was a real it was such a it was such a tight match. And you know, for Andy to come through that was really impressive. I know we always talk about the metal hip and we should not forget that. But yeah, I think that just I think that match alone just shows you where his physically where he's at the moment and I think you can say that he can he can now hang physically with the tour and I think that mat shows it. I still think in terms of tennis ability, particularly with the top players there is arguably some more work to be done there because he came up against Diego Schwartzman following that match in the second round. And he lost again in two quite tight sets, but it really does seem to be a problem at the moment for Murray of closing out the big points. And particularly tie breaks because he's not really had a good run with tie breaks coming back from his operation against really high caliber kind of top 20 ranking players. Well, you say that, but then he won two against TFO and won that very tight match. So perhaps being a bit harsh. But yeah, I think after that Schwartzman lost in the next round, you know, he lost that 6 four 7 6. He was sort of saying that he just, you know, the decision making wasn't quite how he wanted especially in that second set. And he really needs to sort it out because ultimately, he wants to be winning and he may play very well, but if you're not coming away at the end of the day, with that win, you know, it's you're not getting that progression. It's a results business. Yeah, exactly. Being very realistic there. But he has lost a few matches, yeah, this season is seems like those second set tiebreaks. They sort of first set tiebreaks. They, you know, if he could just get them and be on the winning side, perhaps, you know, some of those matches against the top players would have gone differently. But I think having come through that epic with TFO, I think that, you know, that was a great way to put it together when it mattered. So especially in that last set to our break. And no wonder, he probably would have been quite tired for the next round. For three hours and 45, I think, generally speaking, you should be quite proud of his week. But I think that's what was so funny about it, because I was watching that match against Schwartzman. And I actually don't think energy levels or feeling tired was part of the conversation of why Andy Murray lost. You know, it was more Schwartzman was playing a really, really good game and Murray's decision making wasn't as good as it as it had to be. There were a few shots I would particularly there was a smash that just went straight into the net, which you sort of aborted midway through that this made me think whether his shot making wasn't it wasn't it wasn't as good as it needed to be. And as a result, Schwartzman was just able to really kind of be the really kind of show off his counter punching availability capabilities and even when kind of Andy Murray was on the front foot in a point. Schwartzman was just able to do a complete role of us. And I think that was what was quite interesting about that match. And it shows that think for Murray that there is there is a little bit of a way to go, but at the same time, the closeness of the sets to me suggests that it's just around the corner. I know we've been saying this like the last few weeks, but it feels like he's coming to a point now where it will take one, I think breakthrough tournament get him back. But hopefully, yeah, hopefully that will come soon. Yeah, it could be a mental fatigue thing. You know, being mentally tired, effectual decision making, et cetera. I mean, I know when I'm tired. I have no idea what to do for dinner, for example. I can not make decision to save a life, so anyway, let's take a quick break now, but do join us in the second half, got a lot more to talk about still, including all the updates for Wimbledon, 2022, the latest vaccine news coming out of the Australian open and all of the events this week, including Vienna and also emery's debut in Transylvania. So do join us after the break. This is the passing.

"Know what to make of. This made me so sad. When i i read this woman in belgium. Who's been visiting the antwerp zoo. Every every week for four years and she has a relationship with cheetah the chimp and she's now been really slashes do a relate like their friends like she comes and visits him once a week every week for the past four years she blows kisses to him. He's become very attached to her. And the other chimps are now excluding him. According to the zoo The other chimps are like ooh cheetah your gross and they socialize with him and he spends about fifteen hours of every day. Sean by himself so this. This woman has been banned from the zoo. The zoo said your relationship with cheetah is causing him harm. You're not allowed to come here anymore. And her her response is. I loved that animal and he loves me. Why do you wanna take that away. She said the ban only applies to me. Other people are allowed to visit the chimp. The thing is When she comes to visit he knows her and he comes right up to the glass of the enclosure and they wave at each and they blow kisses and she believes that the chimp loves her and needs her The lips of her pressed against the glass of the monkey enclosure kissing. Yeah just i just pulled this up. Yeah the zoo officials say that. The relationship with the with eighty. Her name is eighty and the chimp He spends all his time alone because other chimps won't allow him to be a part of their group. The other animals ignore him. They don't consider him to be one of them and he sits all by himself. The zoo The vet said that he's too focused on people which means he's less respected by peers. And we want cheated. It'd be a chimpanzee. He's for thirty. You know how we're always we're always connected to the primates. Humans are connected primate. Some people can see that other people are upset by that. This proves that there's no connection because If you are seeing someone you have a relationship with someone. Your friends will always say. Oh yeah even. If they don't like them these chimpanzees are going. I don't like her and we're having nothing to do with you until you get rid of her exactly. So there's there's no connection your your. Your friends don't do that. They shut up because they don't want you know they don't wanna say oh good lord she's really possessive and then you go back to her right What do you think no seriously. What do you think makes me sad. Because she's devastated. She said he's all i have. And zoos over there. Going ma'am this. Animal is is being tortured. Look for this relationship what do you do. I'm with the zoo. I'm totally with zoo is right. Let the ant. The animal needs have friends. And this lady is kooky good as i'm giving actually kooky okay. I could say something stronger. But i'm going gonna give her the just the kookiness. That's crazy. I think that your. I do not disagree with you. I think that this this person needs love and care and help and some relationships in the human world what does it say that she has nothing else. No other relationship in her life except with cheetah. The chimp now that makes me sad as imagining cheetah being shunned by his buddies for having a human breast best friend. Like it's just. This is heart-wrenching isn't it I would hate to be the therapist. So what what's her name. Eighty so eighty Let's talk some more about your relationship with a monkey How did you relate to your father when you were very. Oh he was. Oh okay. well let's go into that. A little hole moke to get eighty needs a pet like there are so many wonderful animals in shelters that desperately need to be loved. We need to get eighty a pet. Because it's not fair to chita that he would have no friends and no respect and no companionship. She only comes once a week. The pet won't measure up the pepple. It's it's like you're in love with someone and then she dumps you and you start dating somebody else. But she's not the one not enough a little doggy or something or a cat is not gonna replace cheetah. This is really. This is a tough one. Because you know you. I have nothing but compassion for her. But we can't have this. Poor temp being friendless at zoo just goes to show you that. Human beings are exhausting dated exhausted. I know that's right all right. Let's pause here. We got morons in the news. Coming up in a couple of cows and a real bobbins. Bob bob and sheri you here they are. He's a moron a complete idiots in the news. Well this is an update on a moron in the news story that we had a few months ago. And what this says is you are not helping and you are just being a idiot and not making sure that we're safe as americans just to make your stupid point you're not gonna get away with it all the time. A pennsylvania woman. Do you remember this story. The woman who went into a supermarket in started spitting on the food and the supermarket had all the food.

The korean war went from private to master sergeant. All kinds of heroic actions suffered all kinds of wounds shot hit with frag white phosphorus burns and also bayoneted multiple times including one bayonet stabbed that broke off in his chest. He in the korean war served as a platoon leader even though he was just a young enlisted guy and eventually at the end of that podcast and at the end of that part of his life. Us pulled off the battlefield. One of the most decorated soldiers of the war sent on a morale at it was basically morale tour and i were flown back to the to the white house. President truman and then basically went to london and antwerp in brussels and the hague and all the other european allies that were fighting alongside america in the korean war along the way he met. Mrs eleanor roosevelt. She encouraged him to go to college. He kind of agreed of the quotes. He says in the book is he. He agreed because he was already master sergeant in the army and he said what am i going to do. Sit around the enlisted man's club telling stories about korea so he was sort of not not over it but he realized that he'd kinda done what he was going to do. So he ends up getting assigned as an rotc instructor at a high school in denver because he liked to ski goes to the third ranger class. That ever happened. He was in. He ends up getting married to his hometown. Sweetheart mary grace starts going to college or he then he gets out of the army then starts going to college at the university of pittsburgh while he's there he writes a book called conquest. No war nowhere. Which was his first book about the korean war which he later rewrote which we covered. What when it was rewritten was called the making of a soldier. That was podcast to seventy three for the most part worked at a steel mill at night while he was going to college and then eventually commissioned as an officer in the pennsylvania national guard. Shout out to the To two eight iron soldiers all right so so then he goes to the. He's back kind of in the army and he gets them warnings at the army's different now you know the war is over.

"Grew up in Antwerp in Belgium in a community that was all Jewish Holocaust survivors. My parents came from Poland to Belgium. They both were the sole survivors of their entire family. They both spent years in concentration camps and then where five years illegal refugees in Belgium as well before I am born. Um and my parents would never have married if it wasn't for the war.

He admired her and she loved being admired. So he worked very well. But their view was you need to want to stay together and you need to make compromises. I mean, as you said, it sounds like a lot of survivors had real trauma in common. That's what brought them together. But did it also keep those relationships going to a lot of survivors? After did war and after they had kind of ended the initial stage of rebuilding and locating themselves and creating a new lives and having Children right away to prove that they're still human?

They rejoiced in the things that the other one like to do and went to do for themselves. Stairs, parents transformed their trauma into a partnership that celebrated life together.

Until then, she had worked for the gas company and taken some elocution courses. But when the studio was built on the picking strapped at the initiative of a certain young Vanderheiden She walked in the door and was hired before long. A team had formed around Vanderheiden, who always used the same actors in the same crew. He oversaw both production and direction, and he shot his films in record time. The biggest rat studio was such a hive of activity that journalists called it. They AMP versus Hollywood's Hollywood of Antwerp.

It had been written to spec for the young Dutch Olympic swimming champion, Vili done Oden, who wanted to go into film. For what? My mother told me. The rather lame detective subplot served as a pretext for various dives and aquatic ballets. My mother was to play the role of Lily than Oden's best friend. I have the contract that my mother signed that day. Two sheets of great thick sky blue paper. Watermarked with the open felled films letterhead at the top. The O of open Felled is very large with an elegant loop executive and telegraphic fix and thins. Inside the old stands a miniature Brandenburg Gate. Finally engraved. It is there, I suppose to recall the origins of the two producers in Berlin. It is agreed that my future of mother shall receive a fixed sum of 75,000 Belgian francs, payable installments at the commencement of each week of shooting. And it is understood by both parties that this fee shall not be subject to any augmentation a diminution until the contract shall expire or in due course, be extended. It is further stipulated. The time spent in makeup and wardrobe shall be considered work preparation, not work. As such. At the bottom of the page. My mother's careful signature Then the dashed off signature of Felix opened felled and the third signature in uneven choppier Spider he hand under which someone has typed Mr Open. Feld Senior.

That is a practical practical that's true, except your differences and basically deal with it option with its she has an option to work on setting your own boundaries. Your own behavior is the only Behavior you can control that's true. Yeah, it's going to say it sounds a bit like, you know, you could have the boundary month. I will not be in a cohabitating relationship with someone who is not vegan, but then it is your responsibility to protect your boundaries and step away. I agree with everything except for the junior partner limits to what they're feeding their child's. Yeah, it could be it could be your it could be like it could be that your partner is not the parent of the child. So I think definitely you make the rules for your birth. If your parents and Jessica from Antwerp who's Instagram handle mentally is the portmanteau Jessica Antwerp says for me it helped to real life letting go and applying a soft approach actually has the biggest and longest term impact. I will never try and convince anyone of veganism. Especially not Uninvited off. It sets some people off they get an idea that vegans are militant and it doesn't help you reach quote your goal any quicker on the contrary, even if she said that I will not accommodate meat-eating meaning if you're in my house and I cook Thou shalt eat no animal produce. I hope so that's our house. Imagine. Some of them has a sausage in their handbag and yeah, slap sit on the dinner table set would be super rude debate. Yeah. I I don't think militant is necessarily a bad word, but game Stand in the context like she means it like pushing me socially Ghosh which means lamp like bringing back in at the vegan dinner party. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. She goes on since being vegan. This is a hopeful conclusion since being vegan. I've dated a few people and I've been into serious relationships with some reason I seem to attract massive meat eaters the first relationship. I had a massive people who eat meat or they eat a massive amount of me-wow the First Choice relationship. I had I actually transitioned from vegetarian to vegan. I didn't share much about it. But when he was at my place he ate what I cooked he then was intrigued by my transition did the research and they're still vegan to this day, which is about three years after the breakup current relationship. Also big meat eater coincidental. Spent three weeks with me 95% plant-based the vegan either he lost lots of weight without effort looks better first felt worse and then better but there's no arguing with that kind of experience first. Well, yeah, maybe that was psychosomatic. Who knows I never heard it could be gas maybe like never ate vegetables off. Then you certainly had a lot of fiber to contend with goodness. Also losing weight is like not not necessarily Mark of Health. No, no, not not but it sounds like that was what he was trying to do..

"All kinds of new ways that around uncertainty that we are experiencing is accompanied with a sense of grief and loss, not because we lose people only, but because we have lost. The world that we knew crisis can push people apart, but it can also bring them together. That's how s stairs. Parents found each other. I grew up in Antwerp in Belgium in a community that wass all Jewish Holocaust survivors. My parents came from Poland to Belgium. They both were the sole survivors of their entire family. They both spend years in concentration camps and then where five years illegal refugees in Belgium as well before I am born. Um and my parents would never have married if it wasn't for the war. My mother came from an educated, aristocratic Hasidic family. My father was basically illiterate. They did not belong to the same words. My parents circumstantial marriages. Like many Postwar marriages, I've lost everything. I've lost everything. I'm alone. You're alone. Let's get married. But my dad adored my mother. He worshiped her. He admired her and she loved being admired him very well. But their view was you need to want to stay together and you need to make compromises. I mean, as you said, it sounds like a lot of survivors had riel trauma in common. That's what brought them together. But did it.
How did Andy Murray win that?
"Right Okay Day to the US Open. How on Earth did Andy Murray do that Catherine? He's just one from four, six, four, six, one, three down. How has he done that somebody explained to me Name Messing with the lewd tonight is the plum street in the deepened. Question isn't it? I mean what's going on? Well, they said to two women who we had to know primarily a CEO Tim. If you had to attribute that combat come back to one thing and one thing I think we're on a time limit. What would it be and he said halt. I think I mean obviously, that is that that is a word that covers a broad spectrum of things all of them are. Totally embodied by Andy Murray persistence to nasty doggedness stopping this. But obselete hot is what got him through a very bizarre tennis match today I mean I'm sure in the annals of time we remember the witness of if the match that will suitable fade away and we'll remember the school line in the emotion whatever ends up coming in the aftermath, but it was a It was a rookie right of a tennis match for for a long time. someone on twitter said that there was once a racehorse who died and when they cut the race open they realized he had a heart that was bigger than any other race horse in history and that feels like the kind of thing that might happen with Andy. Murray one day. That's a morbid take on them on a very joyous occasion for Andy. Murray. But it is one of those things isn't it? Because we think of Mary is so relatable and yet. On occasion like this, we I genuinely have no idea how he does something like that. It's it's thrilling to watch but I, come explain it. He operates on a different level of guts and defend defiance and resilient to what I'm capable of even imagining. In the you say that was a bit move it but didn't the encore interview immediately off the match the first question was Andy. We buried at the Australian Open last year and yet he He was just an alternate set of on the sports accidental turn of phrase unfortunately most well, we'll maybe fortunately a lot of these faces obscured by a mask, but I would quite like to have seen his full facial reaction to the declaration that he'd been buried the tennis community. Hopefully hopefully, we're looking at about fifty years down the road a sixty or something like that for. To have this. This forensic analysis. David Lewis let's get out of this. Yeah. Let's do that. Tell you what I think. We have just a bit of history in order so that we know exactly where we are with the Sandy Murry story. This is a man that was supposed to retire twenty months ago and. He didn't he went and had a hip surgery he went and had a new metal, hip. He then made a comeback and the combat went really well, and he won't doubles clean said he played mixed doubles with Serena Williams, at Wimbledon and then he went on won the singles title in Antwerp and it was just amazing and then he looked like he was hitting the buffet Z. looked like he was in real trouble when he had the complications and what was it called it the impingement of the joint with which which was think caused by sort of spare type thing on the hip and is causing all sorts of trouble didn't play the Australian Open this year I personally thought he was probably finished really at that point for. Twenty time. And slow behold he comes back place last week in Cincinnati Stroke New York has those two great wins over Varun Ti and then. Lost didn't look great against Manashe rich but comes into this match and a half to say I felt pretty sheep pretty. Confident on his behalf I thought he would. He would have struggle against a very good player world number forty, eight Yoshito Nishioka from Japan. He's twenty four years of age Manu beat Dan Evans. The Australian Open, this year, and who just has one of those really solid sprightly games left handed can hurt you but can also stay in rallies and for an hour and a half. He made Andy Murray. Look terrible Andy Maryland made himself look terrible and At that point I said on the radio and I know I said it on the radio because the BBC sport website copied and pasted my words into their text portal and I, got seventy four negative votes as a result of the words that I added which were Four six, four, six, one, three, headlined. He may not be able to do this anymore and I said this is one of the worst performances I've ever seen from Andy Murray to Grand Slam. He's got a metal hip, and he may not be able to do this anymore but looking at this having covered. So many of his matches I've never seen anything quite like it before past is not feeling very well, I, expected to see a fight tooth and nail his opponent is good and I thought he could cause problems but I expected it to be hyper competitive and Murray would win but it's not even close. And I stand by every single word that.

Creativity in lockdown with Dan Thawley
"Name's done thoroughly and I am. The editor in chief of a magazine curated by fashion and odds journalists based in Paris mistrial like I was born in Sydney and moved over to Europe in two thousand nine. And I've been working on this magazine since two thousand nine is its digital editor in two thousand and ten. I became the editor in chief. It's a magazine that was started in Antwerp in two thousand one with the mission of creating Belgium's first name fashioned title and it quickly became something quite different as the concept is to invite one fashion designer to curate each each issue of the magazine at say cut blonde to them to express their interests their that loves their obsessions and all about the universe in around two hundred pages and it is something that has really done a a world to a in nearly twenty years with designers from France and Italy from Japan from England and from the United States and really a covering a very very broad aesthetic scope as well so it started with designers like Martin Majella and had Iraq common and alleviate tastes skins people that were really based in that late nineties Belgian aesthetic And then moving forward. We've we've worked with the many many different types of designers like Alexandra mckelway at Gucci. We've worked with Palo Pitcher Lee at Gallon Tina and almost issue which is just about to hit newsstands. In the coming days and was announced last week is with. Luke and Lucy mayor who are the Co curated directors of Joe Sanders Milan. I'm such a fan of theirs. I'm really excited to read this. But I'm I'm wondering Dan. How how. How do you put together a print magazine while in confinement? How did you make that work? We're very impressed so we have. I mean it's always a long process in this initiative. We've been working on for many months. So certain parts of it were very luckily finished. Just before legal confinement and other parts of it was still in the process as we as we were shutdown lockdown here in France so I was very lucky to have program this issue more or less to come out around this Around this time but it was slightly delayed. But I'm what we don was actually done most of the physical productions in the months of January to March already. So what was the biggest challenge for US was That we usually design the magazine together without team in Cologne as we work with a wonderful office codes Marais and Mirae in a column and so usually we would have gone there with looking Lucia and whichever designer we were with the time for a couple of days and we sit in the office with them and we design all the pages and we go through all of the process of of the structure and putting everything together in person. And this time we were unable to do that. As actually there was a case of covid nineteen in the in the office in Cologne in the earlier. Part of of quarantine. It was really off the table before travel was actually Was actually restricted. So we were forced to do everything. And and work from home as as were everybody else. What we were lucky was that we'd had most of Al Photo shoots finished so I'm one of the challenges was that we had photographers rushing to their lab. Zola the All over the place to get prints developed in time and we did shoot Many different cities New York Bacelona Paris. I slammed we. We really were all over the place. Summer talk of traveled others were in their in their hometown during their own country where they could drive and and do something locally which was nice. It wasn't all baked productions Anyway but it was many small things happening at once and and so we did have the risk of getting some of our images in time and then everything was luckily through except for one or two things that we really had too late by the wayside and we set to work designing the magazine from fall which was very challenging. Because we had people in time zones on my colleagues Blake was in Vancouver with his family so he was able to come over for the design periods so we had people working from Vancouver to France to Cologne and Milan only lockdown so it was quite a juggling act but al lost real stroke of luck in the middle. That was that in fact we would for the first time printing with an Italian printout because they work with a special technique where the side of the magazine is actually invisibly bound. So it's bound with stitches. Which then all these small booklets stitch together and then glued on the side so you have this invisible spine with the stitches showing through and they were actually considered an essential service in Italy. Even though they were northern Italy area that was very very heavily affected by the virus and Due to their Status as an essential services provider we were able to print in April saw so that was really interesting and as I said a very serendipitous experience. The putting the print magazine together nut time of course like putting any media together in that period. It was something that had to be done very sensitively. It had to be done with a lot of thought to the well that we were living in at a particular time as well as The That we're going into and We were also very prescient with that because Lucy and Luke's same for the issue that was decided last. July was the idea of human nature and Mother Nature and the interactions between those things that have been decided way before because I feel it so APP. Yes so we've found ourselves with the same that we'd already been working on for months. It was already very much connected to current events. In a way you know we're looking at indicted environments. We were looking at different kinds of architecture that was linked to people's domestic lives the process of them creating work. We were looking at also different elements of of race. We were looking into also things that sort of pivoted around the way we deal with nature and environment. It was something that I of course have to think about when riding my editor's letter which is one of the loss things that goes into the magazine and A very timeless publication. We're not the kind of magazine like You were discussing earlier. The whether it's vogue or New York Times it has to be on the on the point of of the actually of the news and really making strong statements Thereabouts but what we did have in wanted to do. He was still a really acknowledged the fact that we were coming out in this time and in this year Wanted that we will never forget in our in our
Grinding to a Halt
"It started off initially the night trump head incorrectly of course he incorrectly announced the travel ban into the US which turned out not to be a full ban at turned out to be limiting non residents and and non-citizens into the US. And we were trying to keep track of what routes were still operating routes. Were suspended which the time was a pretty doable concept but it so quickly morphed into what airlines are operating what capacity and what airlines are not operating at all for the time being and on top of that which airlines will never be operating again. Which is something. I expected to be tracking this week. Yeah I I mean when when you sent me the initial Spreadsheet and said. Do you want to help and I said sure that seems like something that we can kind of keep track out and look into schedules and things like that and then that just became an impossible task to to track individual rights when when airlines started moving towards. We're going to reduce forty percent of our capacity fifty percent sixty seventy eighty and now. The top of the sheet is just airlines. That are not operating flights right so we are currently tracking forty two airlines. That are completely one hundred percent grounded either now or in the very immediate future at ranges from tiny little Air Antwerp all the way to the bottom of the list. The Yemenia Airways sunwing in their Philippines Montenegro locked jet to Egypt there Cayman Airways Airlines from every region. All over. The planet have ceased operating entirely. And that's not even considering airlines at our ninety nine percent grounded such as Ryanair. Sas who have tons of group as a whole believe is ninety. Eight percent cut Air France. Ninety percent. Cathay Ninety percent tap ninety percent. Norwegian eighty-five doubt. They see the other end of this crisis. Korean Air Eighty five percent American Airlines fifty percent as of now but that will probably be going up. Some of the domestic. Us airlines are doing slightly better. Jet Blue has cut forty percent Hawaiian forty percent spirit down to twenty percents southwest really only twenty percent right now the Middle Eastern Airlines. Haven't done all that much. I believe guitar is just a five percent cut right now and I haven't heard much of Andy had or or Emerets but it is truly a global without exception circumstance right now. Yeah so we've started tracking since this began to sets of numbers. We've always tracked our our daily statistics so the total number of flights tracked we all. We've always kept track of that We've recently expanded things on the site to to give a better picture of that. We went from thirty day graft to a ninety day graph as well and we've also edited a moving average there to kind of keep track of things are headed for the first time so today's the nineteenth on the eighteenth of March that was the first time global tracking went down So we are now one percent below where we were at the same time last year. And that's the first time all all the the total number has dropped down. We've also started keeping track of what we're calling commercial flights so those are are scheduled passenger and cargo flights and those numbers are nine percent below where they were last year and and that is an and so that's not nine percent below where we thought they would be or were they were projected to be because I was looking at four point one percent increase for passenger traffic this year and I think a two percent increase for cargo traffic this year so nine percent below last year is an even bigger drop than than what we would expect to have seen this year all things being equal yes so everywhere across the globe capacity cuts in an actual fights operating is is pretty stark this year. Yeah and it's only I mean the will post a graph in in the show notes. But it's were looking at total flights tracked you know in the Below the twenty. Seventeen range now So we've I mean wiped out real gains in in less than a week and and that's going to that's going to continue as airlines wind down it major airlines down a vast majority of the operations looking at the US Delta American united are all parking aircraft at various airports around the US Delta's moving things to to Birmingham Alabama and Miranda Penal Park in Arizona United is using Victorville And also their hub airports The the new Berlin airport is finally getting Getting some use with storage for Lufthansa's fleet So that's a I guess you know an interesting move but they've got That positive note or just some. It's just it's just a data point that I mean it's airlines are soul. Looks like a parking lot Frankfort looks like a parking lot Vienna looks like a parking lot. The these things that you know they just seem so unimaginable a few weeks ago in this this you have no idea. Nobody knows what the outcome of this is Especially in Europe where this is particularly impactful airlines were already teetering on the edge a lot smaller airlines stopped operating. Recently a whole bunch of others were not in the greatest financial health. I wouldn't be surprised if several if not many European airlines do not survive this I mean flyby was the first domino to fall and that was the very early days of this whole outbreak We've had a couple airlines in the US that were about to start thinking about closing down. Maybe towards the end of the year Translate Airlines and now compass airlines have both decided The the Kutcher so dire at this point that they were going to ramp down towards the end of the year and they've decided what we will do it now because we're not fighting for anything right. I mean it's every new is already a sad situation with airlines shutting down in translates thankfully there was going to be some shuffling there but now I mean who knows and the one thing that has been pointed out I think is with all of these cuts keeping crews proficient and rated to fly. Whenever we do start flying again is going to be an interesting challenge. I was reading a bit about that this morning from a pilot who was concerned that that they weren't going to be able to to restart because they wouldn't be able to to legally operate the aircraft. I mean there's layers upon layers upon layers of things that no-one knows how this is going to work. No one really understands the the full impact of this and we're still kind of grappling through some of the minor in
Why Curiosity Is the Key to a Successful Career with Philip Van Dusen
"Hope you enjoyed this episode with Philip Inducing Philip Thank you for coming on the show. Hello and and for people who don't know about you. Can you give us the really quick intro until offenders and and I'm a principal of their HAL brand design which is a consultancy Z.. We specialize in brand strategy marketing and designed for small to medium sized businesses and entrepreneurs. Are you a classically trained designer. I am not. I am a a classically trained painter. My masters in painting I used to teach painting back in the day. So how did you go from painting to doing design and brand strategy I I took a well. I like to call it a career web rather than a career ladder Lots of lots of side jobs but they we all made each other stronger and I start off his painter. As I said was teaching university for a little bit and then I came back from teaching in south France and I started my own t shirt company with the monitor types that I had been producing when I was teaching. And this was before the Internet so that dates me and and I walked the island of Manhattan with my low T. shirt sample case selling my stuff and street fairs Manhattan and stuff like that. Eventually over time realized that I didn't really like sales that much and I love doing the design work so I I went to work for one of my competitors about a five million dollar t shirt company that it was in Dumbo Brooklyn back when Gumbo did not have a West Elm. I worked there for about four or five years and it went from designer senior designer to creative director are- quickly and I realized very quickly that being creative director was a lot like teaching. Except you got paid more money and you weren't out of work every nine months so so it's nothing like teaching. Just kidding right this is very good. I've got I've got a couple of questions for you. You're in New York. How are you sustaining yourself? Assault selling t shirts. This sounds like it. Like how do you make ends meet. Yeah I was actually working at a frame shop in the West village same time and then I started doing well enough that I stopped working in the frame shop. But that's also right about the time that the the first MAC started to make its appearance in terms of really being a workable. All design machine. That's when I went to work for this other t shirt company. I see Woo man. You're like early kind of digital artist. If you're talking about the first I MAC and I'm gonNA throw a daycare and you don't have to confirm nor deny the date is Israel. Are we talking like eighty five ish like late eighty S. We're talking very very early. Nineties like okay like ninety nine and is this. The Beige all in one Macintosh. We're talking about yeah. Well Yeah Chrome. mm-hmm monochrome monitor the five K.. Yeah yeah the first one. I remember those days so naive myself to learn. Actually I think the first one the first Mac I had I rented and I rented it from a shop in Manhattan it was a Quadra seven hundred or maybe the one before that I think okay bought was a Quadra four seven hundred but it had like you know two hundred one hundred and seventy five megabyte hard drive in you know how powerful it was. I don't understand people do not understand this. One hundred seventy five megabyte hard drive was a big deal back then. Yeah Yeah I mean the fact that you had. Yeah I don't really get into because we're going to hold out. No I hear here's one little blow your mind. got a black and white laser printer and it cost me thirty eight hundred dollars and just bought one for my office and the toner cartridge was more expensive printer. It costs like I don't know sixty nine on dollars or something like that. I always like that. My Gosh so much change okay. So you're working on a frame shop. Now you're selling t shirts and and when you when you say you're selling tee-shirt is it the way I imagine you come out the design you pay for the printing and then you're sending selling your original artwork on a T.. Shirt is that how that works the up. That's how it worked time went and then printed Ed and I You know ship them. I took them in cases with my old beater car to wherever they were being sold in gift shops and stuff often apparel stores in Manhattan But then when I went to work with other company that we were shipping rain for the United States and stuff like that and that company that five million dollar company they also design t shirts. Yeah we did all original designs. I say we are a huge business in the Caribbean so a lot of resort teas and stuff like that. We also have a lot of things called name drops where you have a design but then you put like Siesta key in the bottom of it or you know Tampa Bay or you regionalize. The design For souvenirs shops and whatnot. Then I I went to work for another licensed. T shirt company That did a lot of character.

It was ninety five and I left there in two thousand six right. That's your ten year span. There eleven spent two thousand six. And how quickly were you able to ascend from being new in the door to being VP. I I was a VP within the first five years. Wow and what do you attribute that to like. Why did they pick you of all the people because you wanted to managing in sixty ish people right? Why did it take you to be the guy? And why not the person standing next to you.

"The Obedience of a Christian Man" published - October 2, 1528
"Day was October fifteen twenty eight the book the obedience of a Christian man by English Protestant William Tyndall was first printed in Antwerp Antwerp Belgium in the book. Tyndall said that kings were the head of their countries church and were accountable to guide not to the pope. The book is is one of the key texts in the English reformation. A- period in the sixteenth century when reformers challenged the authority of the Pope and the Roman Catholic Church tender was a scholar and theologian he was also a linguist who became fluent in several languages over the years including French Greek Hebrew and Latin but his religious views grew to be radical and controversial influenced by the reformation tend to believe that only the Bible should determine the doctrine of the church. We also thought that translating the New Testament into English would allow people to have their own understanding of scripture rather than one determined. I the Catholic Church the translation of the Bible that the Roman Catholic Church use the vulgarity was in Latin so the Bible was read in Church in Latin which few people attending religious services could understand but the church wary of anyone or anything that may challenge tradition required ecclesiastical approval of translations and readings of the Bible in English reformer John Wycliffe and those who promoted his views known as lawler's were persecuted as takes for their defiance of the beliefs and practices of the church and their translations of the Bible into English but even though having unauthorized kingland translations of the scriptures result in charges of heresy people still read English translations and reformers acknowledged the Bible as the highest authority the Biblical word not the Pope and Tyndall was determined to translate the Bible into English even after Church authorities in England refused his requests he left England and by fifteen twenty five he had completed his translation of the New Testament and by the next year printing the New Testament Testament was complete. It was the first New Testament in English to be mass produced with the printing press rather than being handwritten thousands of copies. TINDALL's New Testament were printed by the time he was executed in fifteen thirty six per heresy and it influenced later Bible translations including the Sixteen Sixteen Eleven King James Bible Tyndall also published other books in which he criticized the practices of the Catholic Church. One of the most influential was the obedience of a Christian man though the original title of it is much longer than that the book is divided into three main sections preceded by two introductions and the First Section discusses God's laws of obedience in the people bound to obey them the second expressive how the people who have authority should rule first and the third affirms that the literal sense of scripture is spiritual in the book. He said that worshipers should affirm the authority of the Bible over any other authority authorities like the Catholic Church and the post the book also claimed that God appointed kings who authorities of their realms Ambuhl bowland owned a copy of the book which according to anecdotal evidence was eventually shown to King Henry the eighth. It's been claimed that the king liked the stance on Papal Authority authorities expressed in the book and that book influenced the Act of supremacy which declared Henry the eighth and his successors the Supreme Head of the Church of England instead of the Pope Nope. Those claims are unsubstantiated other books. Tyndall wrote include the parable of the wicked mammon and the practice of the prelate

Cyber Law: Everything You Need to Know
"You know, we hear every day attacks and hacking, and all of this kind of stuff at Facebook, or you know, even this week at Amazon my goodness. But it's so much bigger than that you, and I both know that. So it really is a question as you said in your outlined before you can understand tax adversaries and mitigation options. The to understand the environment that we operate in. So what is eyebrows space? Well, thank you for having me this morning. I may you know, it's it's a large and almost unwieldy unwieldly complex topic. And I'm looking forward to getting some specific areas over our conversations about cyber risk. But to really understand what that risk looks like and to look at how governments businesses and even we as individuals can begin to mitigate reduce that risk. You do that whole what we government we refer to operating environment. So what really want everyone to walk away? Today are coming up city of two different things. What cyberspace really is what in compass and also what we call a cyber attack surface and other term talk about a little bit. These are foundational pillars to understanding cyber risk. And why cyber threats are so important and important to all of us and a lot of different ways some obvious when our banking accounts hat, some not so obvious in the sense that everything's interconnected, and that's going to impact nearly every aspect of our lives. So so this is going to be pretty elementary because I want to start what kind of broad overview and evolve discussions. From that funny show understanding inches some specific risk areas that we're gonna talk about in time. And why am one of the things we're going to address over time is what congress did something. What if congress actually will be nice this what we one of things? I hope you is listeners walk away with from today's discussion in the subsequent discussions. We're gonna have is just how big just how important and just help potentially dangerous. This space is while congress thinks infrastructure is potholes. Indeed, the first please think in world and everything you can see everything, you know, about it. Continents countries. Borders, fiscal borders, political borders, if oceans waterways, trysofi provider's office buildings laws regulations. All of these things are designed around the concept of national sovereignity and are defined by those borders of markets and governments and industry operating each. It's a world we've known since the dawn of human progress that shapes our every engagement in our interactions. It's a well we can travel cross too. But it takes hours sometimes days pay on. How far you're going now to understand the cyber operating environment. What it looks like I want you to begin imagine a scale magnitude, which cyber risk redefines everything so think of cyberspace as nother world overlaid on top of that physical world and. Cyberspace world. There are no geopolitical borders. There's no natural border snow real borders of any kind, and it is one that can be traveled across at least the information from a computer can. But takes literally fractions of a second run two hours days. We take physically move across that now because this cyberspace were encompasses and impacts everything in our physical world. It does not, but does not have the same geopolitical legal distinctions. We have always governor selves by. So it raises serious questions about how do you enforce what should be reasonable behavior? Let's look at it. Another way laws long ago, an internationally accepted established what is quote unquote, normal behavior for a country to country interactions. If you fire a missile over the border adversarial country, it's an act of war clear-cut, perhaps even likely so even if you don't actually kill anyone. But if you fire cyberattack across the same borders, and you use it to say stealing lectu, probably is not an active war. What if? A cyber attack took out electric grid, which in turn got the power to community hospital, resulting the deaths of patients who couldn't be treated should not be considered any different missile lands in somebody's house reasonable people. Argue it certainly should. But the point is the laws not that clear cut as not black white inter still a lot of gray area when it comes cyber operations have yet to coalesce into any kind of standards of normative behavior between countries and that offers. Countries with ill intent great great opportunity. It also in an we don't mean just from a Connecticut warfare fence. But clearly as we are seeing now in the trade negotiations with China. Differing laws differing philosophies about what it means to electrically steal from someone else or electronically to snoop or eavesdrop on somebody else. Let's important point. I touch them. I want to go on the staff of intellectual property is a longstanding problem was greatly exacerbated by cybersecurity is when we think about cyber it's important to remember impacts bill's economic security and national security the defense side of the national scale that relatively obvious think of as missiles again, the cyber attacks against say military governates he's, but there's a number countries in the world who argued economic security is national security vice versa, don't really draw any distinction between them. So they allowed our military cyber operators to do fairly broad another piece to this equation, those attribution instantly, we're gonna talk a lot about and coming weeks. How how you know who did an attack? And as well beyond today's conversation. But as important to understand for now that actually bution in general, it's pretty hard to do. And it can be fairly slow to actually be very slow depending on on the specifics of cyberattack see how this kind of political wild west nature of cyberspace very few loss to guide or set, what should be normal and acceptable behavior. And you have the challenge of attribution making it relatively easy for cybercriminals to do this kind of work anonymously in that encourages cybercrime and a lot of it in a foreign hackers. Try to explain people businesses governments in order to get something funny. It's a lot of it. For example, sometimes simple hacking, banks. Sometimes it's a ransomware attack shutting off access to your to your all of your data, forcing all employees in a company to pay up bitcoin or some other non Mus cryptocurrency or lose their data. Sometimes it's something more sophisticated. I'm reminded a two thousand twelve s give or take a couple years case, which Subir criminals hack their way into the port of Antwerp Belgium, nor to modify shipping container manifest before ships had actually. Arrived. They do this in funnel hundreds of millions of dollars worth of drugs guns money from three years tonight efforts. There are a lot of ways crime impacts not only rampant, but it is growing significantly. So no sign of abating as the next week. We'll start looking at this specific risk areas about why it why not continuing. As we all know. Well, most of us have been hack at some point or another even if we don't necessarily realize that people can also get exploited directly, your computer could be hacked can be stolen using it for mation gleaned from hacks places like equifax, so your Bank, and guess believe or not there really are people respond to the Email for deaf ear businesses that gave associated prison Nigeria offering you cut of a twenty five million dollars state if you'd only wired money ahead of time. There's a lot of reasons why this kind of stuff continues. Yeah. Actually, I know somebody who was approached and did put out some money owed here. Yeah. Yeah. People people can be gullible in some of these EV these attempts have become quite sophisticated unless the key because what's changing cyberspace sophistication level. We won't even talk for now about artificial intelligence. But there's a lot of things are making making these kinds of attacks much easier to reeducated and a lot. It's it makes people a lot more receptive to the risk itself. Yeah. Well. The the very basic, very basic nature of this is everything from that little phone in your hand everything in this world is now

"At the head of the school of Tehran was Leonardo. Thought about. Afterwards. It was shown that that Mr. nadeau battler in the three years that he was in Antwerp. He never bought or sold any diamonds at all. You were simply there to do as we call a reconnaissance, and you found out that they also built this replica over the volt where they practiced exactly what they were going to do. Why was that? And did you see that place? So we never saw the place, but we do know for sure that they must have built some kind of a replica because they were able with with self constructed material to open all the individual safes without making a lot of noise without drilling without losing time. So they must have been practicing and knowing how to open each individual safe Patrick's team needed more evidence against Leonardo not about low. So although they didn't have the footage of the crime itself. They did have the tapes in the run-up to the crime and of the trolling through hours of footage. They saw someone familiar. We saw the days before the highest missile north of buffalo was doing his last reconnaissance. For example. We saw on camera that he was carrying a black back under his arm, and we sing okay? What is he doing with the back, and we saw him pointing out towards security Edward retrieved the back in his apartment that black back. We saw it was containing video camera with a hole in it.

They used to broomstick handle with polystyrene on the end, even hairspray to disable an alarm, very simple, but ingenious then the more complex tricks. Mr. Nauta, Buffalo's covert filming. Meant they'd managed to work out the security code, but the door itself relied on magnets. Now. I'm going to do my best explain this. If the door opened to magnetic plates were pulled apart and off the siren went, but the thieves bypass that by using tape and unscrewing the bolts, connecting the magnets to the door, which meant they could move the magnets without pricing them apart and silently open, the vote many of their other techniques may never be known to the police like how the thieves got into the fortress of the diamond center in the first place. Patrick has his theories, but nothing conclusive what the police did manage to do is gather enough evidence about what the thieves did do and in may two thousand fifteen the case went to trial. What happened at that trial? The court case itself was quite easy because there was enough evidence for the judges.
