"The chair which was co written by. Amanda peet now does character. Professor kim has become the chair of the english department and is in a position of authority. She finds herself in a conflict zone. The colleges hemorrhaging enrollments and the older tenured professors being challenged by students and young progressive professors calling out racism and sexism on campus. In this scene. She goes to speak to an older male professor in her department. He's the chair of the tenure committee for doctor. Yasmin mckay a young black professor known as yeahs. Who's become a star in the department and has a big following on social media. Her classes are packed. Few students sign up for his classes. Instead of just lecturing while teaching moby dick yes has her students make presentations about the novel in which they can talk about or wrap their take on the story. Professor kim wants the older male professor to strongly support tenure. For yes but she sends us his disapproval. He's played by bob balabagn. Sandra oh's character speaks i. Your tenure has is going to include material on her teaching rain or wouldn't it. I think it's important that you highlight. How innovative pedagogy is the flip classroom specimen of that will be on display in. Today's seminar. Could you maybe include a mention of it. She is hot right now. She has over eight thousand followers on twitter. I mean that's more than all of us. Put together you know who joins himself by the number of his followers. Jim jones david. Koresh has isn't a cult leader. Elliot's uses only twelve followers. I suppose that makes him a loser. Because of her our students are excited about literature that was written hundred and fifty years ago. I know in your. Hey that's right. Now's not my heyday. Look i don't want to pull rank here but as the chair of the department. I knew i'm not saying this. As your superviso-supervisor it is the best thing for the department and the right thing to do for yes or just do it central. Oh welcome back to fresh air. Congratulations on this series. It is a pleasure to have you back on the show. Thank you terry. It's so good to speak to your gun. Are there seems in this series that resonate in your own life about race ethnicity generational conflict. Oh my god. I just just that scene. You see how professor. Kim moment after a moment you see how. She's just shifting and folding herself trying to get what she wants trying to get what she wants out of. Elliot play bob alabama. She's i starts by cajoling and then she starts by kind of like oh bringing him into the cool side to recognize him and then she just gets angry and so something like that. You know like all the different ways you just need to learn to try and get people to do what you want them to do. So you can run your department. I mean i feel all of us understand that the going to your your question about like the greater themes of being a woman and a person of color know in an institution i yeah. I really really understand that profoundly. There's a scene in which there's a korean ceremony held for a one year old. I'll ask you to describe the ceremony. And if you're familiar with it from traditions in your own family or not oh sure. It's a hundred day. Ceremony called toby and basically on the hundredth day of the baby's life. There's a big celebration. There's lots of food but what happens is is that you put all these objects in front of the baby and all these objects means something. A pencil is a writer. You know a pot is shaft. Money is money in the end. it's whatever Whatever the baby crawls to. I and tries to grab is supposedly their destiny. You know tells their future So it's a fun ceremony. Not that i had one. Did your parents have one. When they were growing up. Were know what actually. I don't know whether my parents had one when they grew up. It was a tough time in korea. You know the occupation. And all that stuff so i don't know i should ask that but it was only my brother had one he did. How come he had one. And you didn't come on. I'm not. I'm like the middle child. I'm the second girl hiding. No get one so in the past year or so you became pretty outspoken about anti-asian attacks and crimes and you know this was during covert and it was during the period which i don't know are we still in this period. When there's a lot of anti-asian attacks in part i think. Would you agree that this is in part because of trump when he was president calling covert the chinese virus. You know i. I i would like to put it all on one person but it's not you know. Obviously racism runs deep and it still still going on in a way where people still feel frightened. And they're fighting for their elderly pair appearance and grandparents and their fighting for themselves It's a tough time. It's tough time and says it is a tough time for everyone and it is you know again. What you your point of view and what you make of it I think what you might be referring to is. It's after the shootings in atlanta. I was we. Were shooting in the chair. And i was in pittsburgh and i for me. I don't consider myself a big activist. It's just about the need to connect and it was that week in that we can. I just wanted. I just knew there's got to be there. Had to be a march or rally somewhere in pittsburgh i mean there's a lot of universities there and so i found one and i invited the the cast and crew and it was really tough because again it was during covert and it was even invite the crew to a gathering where where there are lots of people and most everyone was asked but it was important thing for me to do. 'cause i i just felt like i needed to connect with the asian american community and i didn't really. I don't really know what i had to offer other than to say like. Let's let's work through this fear that we have. Because that's that's what will destroy if we if we've been to the fear. Did you experience that fear directly. Oh sure oh sure in the ways of you know when you are known person wearing a mask is of great because knowing because people will give you a little bit more before they can figure out who you are. So i've relished kind of having pockets of anonymity back behind a mask but having said that what has raised is that. Oh i in clearly. An asian lady wearing a mask and sometimes wearing a mask where other people are not wearing a mask and you can just tell i mean as a woman you name. It says as a woman. You're walking somewhere. Let's say it's dark or you're walking through and there's groups of you know dudes you know everything just kind of goes up. You just get more aware. And you're you're you're you're ready for things so i feel like absolutely I know that i know that. I'm tremendously protected by my good fortune and privilege But you know. I'm also still an asian woman. Your parents immigrated from south korea. Did they speak korean in the house when you were growing up..

"What does this mean to you when you sang it. I mean really. Part of the backdrop of the song was a hit during the civil rights movement. And i think respect had a lot of meanings in the song for your listeners. One was you know just the respect you wanted from a man in a relationship but it also had a larger resonance with the civil rights movement kind of larger social cultural sense of respect. Yes in in later times. It was picked up as a battlecry by the civil rights movement. But when i recorded it It was pretty much male female kind thing and and more in a general sense from person to person I'm gonna give you respect. And i'd like to have that respect back or i expect respect to be given back. As we mentioned the song i think resonated with the civil rights movement Your family was good friends with Martin luther king how how well did you know dr king.

"Today. Show is dedicated to aretha. Franklin on columbia records signed aretha in nineteen sixty. The label saw her as a potential jazz star. But you never broke through in nineteen sixty seven. She started recording for the atlantic label with producer. Jerry wexler who was a partner at the label. His specialty was finding great singers and matching them with the right band and backup singers to create a sound that was both artistically true and commercially successful. He led aretha write her own songs. Play piano and use her sisters backup singers. Some of the greatest soul and rhythm and blues recordings wouldn't have been made if it weren't for jerry. Wexler the shortlist of other people. He worked with includes the drifters. Ray charles. bob. Dylan wilson pickett otis redding etta james and solomon burke. Wexler died in two thousand eight. I spoke with him in nineteen ninety-three in front of an audience at a public radio conference in washington. Dc he had written a new memoir called rhythm and the blues. Jerry wexler welcome to fresh air. It's great to be the blog. My book i wanna get started with you work with the retha franklin. I think it's a good place to start if she had made about. Oh ten or so recordings on columbia records before coming to atlantic. John hammond produced her. He was producing her like a jazz singer. Kind of in the dinah washington tradition you when she came to atlanta you work with her. You heard something completely different. What did you hear when you started producing. I heard the aretha franklin who sang in church who sang precious lord when she was thirteen years old and a man in the audience was over comey said he said listen. Listen listened and i listened and it wasn't so much that i tried a new approach to her. It's that what she did fit very well in with what we were doing anyhow. We sat her down at the piano. Play herself which. I don't think she'd done on the records before the not very much. What was it like it muscle shows. What did you hear there in that. Southern sound that you wanted Well it was the way they recorded which was ad lib recording with written arrangements buildings from the get-go just from the chords and the musicians made fabulous entre bution so leaves were arrangements which we all together and they were just as much arrangements as anything that was ever done by henry. Main seaney in the sense of being an arranged piece of music. He took a razor down to muscle shoals recorded like a track and a half with her and there was this really big fight. What was the there was an explosion. That went on because of too much jack daniels and not enough prudence and had to do with ted wide was aretha husband at the time who got into an dangerous over friendly drinking from the same jug with the gentleman who couldn't best be described as a card carrying redneck trumpet player and it got into we call thousands of southern dozens and then it got nasty and the session blew up and we went back to new york with one song complete which was never loved a man and a three piece track on the other side which was to right woman and all we had their rhythm guitar bass and drums which is not a whole lot to go on no vocal. No piano no background vocal. And then we finished by bringing aretha in her sisters into the studio was a pretty good piece of extemporisation in that starting with this very minimal track aretha laid down an organ part and a piano part and then she sang the lead and then she and assist has got to get into the background and it was a very full finished record put together. I'd say what's been showing him. You produced respect. Is there story behind. How the socrates landed on their well. This story is that when otis redding did it It was an entirely different song. The soccer tournaments were aretha. Franklin's idea where she injected into the song which noted certain idea of social respect probably the notion of ethnic respect combined with a little judicious loop brigetti on her pot. The respect that she was talking about was what you might go very bluntly called proper sexual attention but it was. Her trans transmutation of otis reddings little southern song. As a matter of fact i was mixing the record in our studio pro and oldest walked in. He said that little gal done took my song but he meant it in a very kindly way. 'cause he saw the cash registers. Your first studio was actually the office of atlanta crackers. Because when alantic was young he didn't have a studio. So would you do. You'd move out the chairs into the hallway to record. We did have a studio office and it was a studio because we had equipment in my partner. And i shared this big room. We had two desks. That were catty-cornered kanter toward each other. And what we do is push them against the war stack them and then our engineer dowd. Which set out cam. Chairs a few microphones and mike in the hall for echo. You work with otis redding a lot. His career. I was not honest as producer. I want you to realize that. Otis was produced at stax records in memphis by that great team. Jim stewart and book athenian geez. It's the especially steve cropper. You saw him change a lot as he became an what was he like in the beginning before he was very famous. When what was. This was very simple very unaffected by. He had the magic and when he came to new york after his first hit record. I picked them up the airport. No road east. Nobody no nothing just Just solo this and he opened at the apollo and he just stood there just straight on with his arms at his side. Didn't move another one. Who started like that was marvin gaye. But they learned some stagecraft. But what really kicked autists into moving was having to follow. Sam and dave hughes the be described as stateful of jackie. Wilson's really great. Now we were talking before. Hey you brought aretha franklin down to muscle shoals alabama you wilson. Pickett down too nervous to record write. You really loved southern sound. That was coming out of the bands. There why did you think of bringing him there. Well everything was winding down in new york. I mean it was entropy. We couldn't get our own way. We had been very successful year after year but our style of recording was regular old time standard style using ranges with written arrangements. Now when you have to change an arrangement and you almost always do To accommodate the vicissitudes of way you're going. It's toll agony for the entrepreneur to see that clock on around while a man is going around with an eraser erasing little notes on thirteen charts and this sudden style recording. Where is just all you have is called indications you go out. You're single lick. Do it like this fellow's bang. Here's the new cord. But maybe that's overstating but actually there's a spontaneity and fantastic new element that content because the musicians organic.

He says. i think my interpretation of ted white was to play damage not to play scary. The most scary thing about a damage person is things they do to prove a point. I tried to bring a level of vulnerably vulnerability to type. Because i wanted the audience to feel some type of way about tied and aretha and wanting to and wanting them to make it preparing to play. Franklin was never a never ending process for hudson who even learn how to play piano to fritter mercer self in the role she said co-star audra mcdonald who played franklin's mother.

"L franklin's possessiveness of his daughter and her talents and of her first meeting with the magnetic ultra cool ted white marlon wayans the man who would become her husband and manager and later her abuser. We see her confidence in her gifts. Practically take shape in the air like defiant ghosts during her first recording session at fame studios in muscle shoals alabama surrounded by an all white band. One of the factors that led to whites storming out of the session taking franklin with him she shows them who's boss urging them to follow her lead as she frames. I never loved a man at the piano. They follow dutifully their egos drifting to the floor like dust which is exactly where they belonged. In franklin's presence as with all show biz bios the rise to fame as the most compelling segment of respect. Franklin's increasingly dazzling. Wardrobe is part of that story costume designer. Clint ramos traces that evolution with an array of lady like tweed coats that eventually give way to dreamy. Sequined dresses. Franklin's beloved firs symbols of hard earned wealth and luxury but also kind of armor or so well represented there practically characters in themselves. Tommy working from a screenplay by tracey scott wilson which was drawn from a story by thelma and louise writer kelly. Corey stresses franklin civil rights activism and her forthright desire to use her music as a means of change but respect is straightforward about her diva behavior to particularly her tendency toward overwork and drinking which often caused her to throw tantrums or miss performances in respect when franklin behaves badly those around her ascribe her behavior to demons a convenient shorthand for burdens. They can't possibly understand by the time she was sixteen. Franklin had given birth to two children largely raised by her grandmother. Here played by kimberly scott while she took to the road with her father. On a grueling touring schedule. Her first child was conceived when she was just twelve. The father was a family friend. If that's a term that could ever be used for such a man and was raised as the family baby. Tommy captures the eternally simmering trauma of the singer's childhood with just one image aretha as a little girl in a full-skirted dress that might normally be filled out by crinolines backlit and standing at the kitchen sink. She's drinking a glass of milk. She is hugely pregnant. It's hudson's job to play the adult version of that girl and she shoulders it with something like tenderness the easy thing. When you're playing a strong potent character is to bite down. Hudson never does. This is a terrific performance underplayed and all the right ways and emotionally detailed portrait of a woman who knew what she wanted and knew she could deliver but who also moved through life knowing that she'd been cruelly robbed of that thing we so sentimentally call childhood. That was the luxury young aretha hadn't been afforded but hudson also shows us a woman who held tight to her own spark of light..

"How is oh. Just singing is sacred. And you shouldn't do it just because somebody wants you to. What's most important is that you watch treated with dignity and respect all in on this frank. How some i. I wish this were a great movie about aretha. Franklin he really deserve and the music is great. Jennifer hudson who plays a wreath of does the musical numbers beautifully. She's a little weaker on the dramatic side. But the real problem with the movie is that it's directed in a very lacklustre way the screenplay is episodic And really doesn't treat the whole of aretha. Franklin's life at all. It's about a two decades from the early nineteen fifty s through the early nineteen seventies and as follows the typical bio pic pattern of rise and fall and redemption. You know it deals with aretha. Franklin as a young woman Who's dominated by commanding man. I or father and her first husband And although she achieves musical success career success her personal life turns turns really into a kind of tragedy She falls into drugs and alcohol and she has to be redeemed by returning to her gospel roots with the album Amazing grace in one thousand nine hundred seventy two. That's the basic trajectory of the movie And it's very familiar and formulaic and if the direction by a lethal tummy. Were any better. It might have come to life But it really doesn't. It's it remains very conventional and never really imaginative about aretha. Franklin's genius jennifer. Hudson as i say is very good in the musical scenes. Aretha president apparently said that hudson should play her In a film about her and she was right. Hudson is very good in terms of the voice of the movie is a whole however is kind of mediocre. It's really too bad because it could have been that once called respect move onto a film about a girl whose entire family is death. But she's an aspiring singer. Who wants to go to music school.

Sit in the world of video games. and ryan reynolds please. This non player character in a video game called free city which is An extremely violent game in which she's a bank teller In his beautiful city where violence and crime is occurring all around him And he has to go through the same day over and over again. Like groundhog day But suddenly as a result of meeting the beautiful avatar of one of the players he begins to develop a self awareness and it turns out that this evolution so that he's becoming an independent minded person. is due to some secret. Coding in the game That the owner current owner. The game doesn't really know anything about and more and more. This fellow guy becomes an independent actor in the game and a to other non player characters leading them in rebellion against the Really slavery To which they're committed by the rules of the game And the owner of the game tries to put a stop by this. Pull the plug In order to protect his investment while two of his the ones who actually put this code in the game Originally to make it possible for a character to develop in this way of fight against his attempt to shut down the game. So you've got action in the video game and you've got action outside the video game. And it all culminates in a big finale. Filled with cgi affects Where guy finally tries to escape the prison of free city. That's what the game is all about And frankly i sound a good deal of this movie to be kind of amusing but it gets worse as it goes along and i. I was really bored by the big tedious. Thirty minute finale. With all its fights and action and chases I thought that got really really dull after awhile. You imagine what What somebody like hitchcock or capra would say if they could come back and look at today's movies they'd be horrified absolutely horrified. They actually believe that movies were about something human nowadays. of course. they're not at all in this film. The artificial intelligence figures are really more human than the people outside. The game I it's a strange set of affairs. I suppose gamers will really enjoy this movie For the rest of us. It's pure escapism. If you put your brain on hold you might like it But if you think about it afterwards you're going to think it's really dumb. I'm a gamer. And i it sounds really dumb. I don't have any interest in seeing all right. That one's called free guy next up a movie about aretha. Franklin how she became the legend. She still is. It's called respect..

'Wonder Woman' director warns movie-going could become extinct

"Tug I took a walk down Hampstead High Street, yesterday, and it was utterly heartbreaking. So many clothes shops. This is something we're just GonNa see more and more of his mood. Yes, I think. So unfortunately and today we're also dealing with a grim warning about the future of cinema and you can decide for yourself whether this is overly pessimistic enough. But Patty Jenkins who sent him a lovers well know as the director of the recent wonder woman movies things movie going actually going to the cinema is facing a real threat of extinction. Now, this because her latest installment of the wonder woman franchise has been delayed three times during the coronavirus pandemic and it's worth remembering that just in the past week the delay of another big movie franchise that James Bond until next year. sparked the UK and US cinema owner cine worlds to actually just give up trying to operate during this pandemic and it's closed at cinemas temporarily. But for the foreseeable another UK chain Odeon is now only opening at weekends I what Potty Jenkins is worried about is that actually if cinemas do closed and during this periods that the process won't be reversible, she thinks we could lose. moviegoing at for movie theater going forever, and she's one of a number of big Hollywood directors harassing the US government for financial aid for cinemas in the US. Anyway. But I guess as you quite rightly pointed one of the dangers of this crisis business close even temporarily or even if they get state aid, will they actually come back because you know cinema is not as essential. As something like aviation at Cinema, the actual act of running and what they call a movie theater is not a super profitable industry. It's actually the film producers who gets a very large share of your ticket price, and that's why the popcorn is.

Beth welcome on the show. Thanks Josh. Great to see you great to be here. And our other guests is Jasmine crow who is the CEO and founder of Gooder, which is a company that I am fascinated by I. think it's one of the more insightful companies that I've come across. Recently I also have a lot of questions for you Jasmin about how the idea came to you, but but welcome on the show. Thanks so much gas and happy to be here. Of course, we've got Freddie caressed my co host. Zeroed IPO your morning Josh, how you doing good I bet and Jasmine, nice to see you. Thanks for joining us today I'm super excited about today. Yeah me too good to see you. Well, let's dive right in because we have a lot to talk about Jasmine I wanNA start with you and I want to understand I want our audience to understand where you're coming from. When you started gooder there's some kind of basic facts that I want our audience to understand domestically we are wasting seventy-two billion pounds of food every year while forty two million people are struggling with food insecurity absolutely that's a foundational mess. And it's even worse. Now, I'll of everything that's happening with current virus who are wasting more food and more people are going hungry. So it is a huge issue. Yeah. I mean just to be clear before this even. I read somewhere that we were wasting about a quarter trillion dollars a year on food in the United States if people number eight is that right? Yeah. Right Frederick in. So I guess to put an even more simpler context about two percent of GDP is on wasted food for that's a lot of money spent on food that never gets eaten in this country does Like many people I have some passing familiarity with this I. Read about it I don't even know where to start and it seems like maybe you go out and you you know you try to donate food as best you can and and I think that's maybe where you started. Yeah and it transformed into something quite extraordinary. So yeah if you know Josh I started feeding people that were experiencing hunger and homelessness in two thousand thirteen out of my apartment in Atlanta Georgia So that's where got started I found a parking. Lot I drove past it one day and I just saw hundreds of people that were homeless in in something kind of just pulled on my heartstrings at that moment and I said I wanNA help you know what do I didn't have a ton of money and I knew I could cook and so I just went home I post it on facebook I mean Sunday. I'm going to go downtown and I'm going to feed on the streets. If. You want to join me I had about twenty volunteers I made a spaghetti dinner. And loved it. You know brought out my little beats pill at the time, which wasn't that loud outside. Dating us, you're dating we know exactly when you're store your. Heckling when it happened so I really wasn't that loud music thing. But I have bad and you know the idea was it would be old school kind of Sunday music why Jackson five and Aretha Franklin James Brown like this classic kind of music and a good Sunday dinner, and that's how it all got started in. So of eighty own from one of my pop up restaurants went viral on facebook and people are saying this is so amazing which restaurants donate the food and the reality was nobody I was couponing on price matching I always say, I'm the reason Walmart doesn't price-match anymore I definitely feel like i. gave them a run for him. And then I was cooking thing taking it downtown, serving it coming home cleaning up, and so it would take me like forty hours every week I did this and I started researching food ways and was really like upset like I can't believe this much food goes to waste in here I. Am you know putting together five dollar donations and my own money and trying to make these feeding is happening to feed five hundred people

Make a will for free with Freewill

"A lot of US never get around to creating a will to make it easier. The APP free will would like to invite you to use their free online tools. co-founder Jenny Chia sprawling is here to tell us about it hi Jenny. So free will is a website that anyone can make a free state plan on, so that includes a will help care directive and a power of attorney. It's really easy process. You just go to www dot, free dot com, and you answer a series of questions very similar to when attorney might ask you in person, and our software takes those answers and populates a form a legal document that you can then print inside with witnesses and your gotten so on average it takes users about twenty minutes to get a completely free estate plan set up. Already your called free will so this is a totally one hundred percent free will. That's right. It's only possible through the support of nonprofits, so we get one hundred percent of revenue from nonprofits that WanNa make it easy for people to not only set up their estate plans, but also potentially, but you're not required to leave money for charities. Okay because I know people spend a lot of money to lawyers to get will's made. That's right and we think it should be very different access to lies a huge problem in the United States today instead, so we see that you know underrepresented communities have half the rate of will writing than majority communities, and that ends up being a huge barrier to wealth transfer from generation to generation. Some people just never get around to it, aretha. Franklin died without a will. Acting, right and princess well. Wow crazy. So, how long has the been out? It's been out for about three years, and we're actually experiencing a huge spike in demand right now since Kovic started booth, because people are actually able to or think about mortality for the first time, and having really important conversations with their family about what their hopes and dreams are if they were to pass away. How long does it take to create a will on the APP? On average less than twenty minutes. Okay what what motivated to start the at. I the big motivation. Is that you know we talked to a lot of people about their charitable giving and realized a lot of people don't have the ability to gave large amounts of money while. They're saving for their mortgage. Their kids educations things like that, but when they pass away, they might own a home and be willing to share a kind of five or ten percent of that with charity, and it turns out. This kind of charitable giving is actually the largest type of giving. On average in a person's life, so we started free well with the promise of making Book Estate Planning on charitable, giving in not really easy, and we've now raised over one point five billion dollars in commitments attorneys.

I actually just turned thirty last week, congratulations. You seem very young to be concerned. About will's. Yes, so. You know it's important to write a will even early in life, a lot of people don't realize that one of the biggest purposes of putting a will place is to set up a guardian for your children. To setup protection for your pets and caretakers. If you have those to pass on your digital assets, such as your facebook or instagram account, so this isn't just something that baby boomers who had a house.

Halep lays Grand Slam ghosts to rest

"Hello and welcome to our fifteenth and final edition of Roland Garros relived Catherine feeling when I say that. Wistful. I'M GONNA I'm GonNa stop missing the past sort of like A. Double again I will. Note that is. Are You you're right I'm all right I can believe it's the fifteen. Well when I came up with the idea, let's just keep doing the daily podcast. Slams that we promised we would at the start of the, even though there's no tennis by watching lots of action, the past I thought it'd be easy. Turns out then we got lots of ideas about how to do it. Including interviewing everybody, we possibly could find relevant to each match, and that's what we've done again today. for Simona halep against Sloan Stevens 2018 final, and we've got down K. Hilas special guest coach to Simona Halep, and yes, it's been a long and tiring journey to get through today fifteen of these podcasts. We've enjoyed it immensely. I think it's fair to say. So let's get cracking with this one. This match has a lot to it. Doesn't it the whole saga because? Simona. Is it three Grand Slam. She already played. At the to that point and not. Finals yeah, yeah. She played the two, thousand, fourteen and final, and lost in three to Sharapova. She'd played the two thousand, seventeen, French Open final and lost in three Ostapenko, and she played the twenty eighteen Australian Open. Final just a few months before they send those to Wozniacki all three senators. She played well in all of them. She had a lead in all of them and lost all of them. And it was becoming a real. Saga actually. Can help get over the, line. 2018, you say. You want some facts about two thousand eighteen. We. Well, it's not long ago, so you can probably remember most of this Prince Harry and Meghan markle married. Thing right I hosted a semi. Gathering in the garden, did you did you was on the invitation? To, clarify with a few friends and family that I wasn't like a rabid royalist, and it was just an excuse to make some cake and sausage rolls. The I remember seeing the pictures. Wasn't invited that. We can handle it. aretha Franklin and Stephen Hawkins' both died toys. R.. US went bankrupt. Not Quite sure why that to my list, but it is. I'm not sure nothing either. Toys R. US went bankrupt and student Matt's became Grad Matt became Matt. Two thousand eighteen was a big. And formation. Toys R. US, they might. How do you feel about that? No I think it was pressed. Until Lo que, but so I was reading it. I won't saw. Phillips scattered toys R. US In writing when I was about five. States have good stories. Did you speak for? Him! I remember being very excited because it was circuit in the gopher. Time, I was at my dad. That's a long time ago yet. Longtime Gay and I think it was. Joseph in mazing technical latrine time as well right Matt, wasn't even Baby Matt at this point. He's never even heard of these people. You don't know Gordon the gopher is Dima. No. Right so. Just, minded ninety correction. You didn't mention that freedom got promoted into anti eighteen. Thank you for pointing that out. Rather than to. And it didn't last long. It's as relevant as toys R. US, thank you I so. Yes, so we have this final on our hands between SMYRNA HALEP and Sloan seems and it was one that. I was I was looking forward to. A tennis match in. It's just in its own right of these two players battling it out because I thought it could be a really good final. And, should he? I think it ended up exceeding all of those expectations and You're quite right Catherine when you talk about the number of finals, the the salmon halibut already been in, and it was similar to play as we think of that. We've already covered here in this running relived series like even lendl trying to win. A A I slam Andy Murray course. It took him a few guys. Goran Ivanisevic but Simona Halla. Yeah, she already had three. She'd had Darren K Hill by his side for awhile by this point, so let's hear from him about the journey that led to this moments. Together for about three us before she played that particular foreign against flown in two thousand and nineteen and I guess the memory of what happened in two thousand, seventeen, against Ostapenko, as well was brought in the full fun of Amazon so for her to go out and do what she did. And now they say that both of you most destinations. You can't get there unless you go to refund pain a tough road and that was kind of the journey that some had had even before I came along. She might the final. Open and lost Marie shower. Piping, a great match on six four on the third added chances in that one, and then to lose to paint code and then the Knicks Jay come back, an inbetween that of course remember the final that she applied at the open against the Yankee which was another great match, and just even getting to the final at the Australian Open was itself, so I I think that helped a lot. She learned a lot from that particular tournament, and when she got to the final at a French. Against Launch, he had a little extra confidence and belief in a self to finally get it done.

Why Do We Sing in the Shower?

Why Do We Sing in the Shower?

"I think we can all admit that we've pulled a Paris bueller once or twice while lathered up in the shower. Everyone sometimes grabs a handy bottle of shampoo was an Improv. Microphone and busts out a tune or two. There's just something completely satisfying about singing in the shower even celebrities do it. According to People magazine after Jack Black likes to belt out led Zeppelin and Wycliffe. Sean digs a little bruce springsteen everyone's a rockstar in the bathroom whether you have a voice like aretha Franklin or couldn't carry a melody if it had a handle but have you ever wondered about this phenomenon. Some of US wouldn't see in public if someone paid us. We'll sing in the shower without embarrassment. Believe it or not there is a scientific explanation behind our soapy. Musical stylings first. Let's look at why we're relaxed enough in the shower to bust into song. I think about it. You don't sing when you're sad unless you're singing the blues. Maybe for many people shower times the only time they're alone all day. You're in a warm small safe environment. You're comfortable enough to be in the buff stress literally washes off of you when you relax your brain releases dopamine which can give your creative juices a jump start. Warm waters rushing over you and now you're relaxed and feeling good. It turns out that singing makes you feel even better singing because of the breathing that you put into. It gets more oxygen to the blood. This gives you better circulation. Which in turn improves your body and mood. And because you have to breathe a little deeper to belt out a song you get some of the same relaxation and mind clearing benefits as meditation. Another neat thing. Is that when you're singing? You can't really think about your problems. More stress relief. But the best thing about sending in the shower the acoustics. You couldn't ask for a better sound system than a bathroom because bathroom tiles. Don't absorb sound. Your Voice bounces back and forth around the room before fading away and because the shower is a small space it boosts your voice and even adds a little base making your singing sound more powerful sound bouncing also gives your vocal styling a reverse effect which makes voice hang in the air longer and evens out variations in your singing. I think of it as a primitive auto tune. It makes you sound better than you normally would. Which is a confidence boost? We don't sing in the shower simply because we have that song stuck in our heads. You know the one it turns out. We do it for many reasons. Stress Relief happiness great acoustics or maybe just because we like to hear our own voices no matter what the reason keep it up. It's good for you and if you've never tried it pick a song and put on your own private concert.
