Are We the Last Humans? AI Expert Joe Allen Weighs In
"We the last humans? That's a great question. Joe Allen, so I'm just reading some notes here. You suggest that we're staring down the barrel of two different and divergent transhumanist futures. What do you mean? So I think that it's put really well by people like James polos or Mary Harrington. I can't recommend their writing enough. Very, very intelligent. And they are much more fatalistic about this in some ways than I or certainly Steve. Steve Bannon comes out very strong on the point that we just got to stop this. We have to, if not, smash up the machines halt their progress. Polos and Harrington, I think are more fatalistic and what they describe really in essence is a situation in which we in the west are have a choice between two types of worldly power, the kind of Borg that you see represented by people like Google or Facebook or Microsoft, the sort of corporate politically correct Borg that is set up as a sort of police state over the rest of us, or an emperor model, which Musk represents. He's much more of a Caesar Augustus type character. And so it really is a choice, though, not between transhumanism or not transhumanism, is the style of transhumanism because the future that Musk foresees and is actively crafting with his billions is one in which we do create a godlike artificial general intelligence system

"Showering woman framed in close up, screams at an unseen attacker. A man in uniforms lives an audience in front of a giant American flag. In your head, you should picture Gene Kelly in singing in The Rain. Just say and in The Rain. Janet Leigh and psycho. Joyce C Scott and Patton. Americans, traditionally love to fight. love the sting of battle. But open up photographer Carell Augustus new book, black Hollywood, reimagining iconic movie moments, and instead you'll see actor dule hill under that lamp. The screaming woman is actor Cindy colleague, and that man in uniform is instead a woman. Actress Aisha Heinz. In the book, Augustus cast black actors and actresses in some of cinema's most memorable moments, placing them in spaces long denied to them. He says that a mission persisted in the 1980s when he grew up watching mainstream hits like Back to the Future and say anything. We were left out of these stories and oftentimes when we saw ourselves in these stories, we were getting arrested or in a prison scene or in a gang scene. And I just wanted to do whatever I could to sort of change up the narrative visually and artistically. I guess the shot is first photographed for the project back in 2010. Before Black Lives Matter, before ask us so white before Black Panther, he knew some people might view the book as a reaction to those events. At some points, I found myself in tandem with these movements. And I just embraced it. What may stick out most in the book is that you won't find a list who's like Denzel Washington or Angela basset here. Not that I guess the sitting go for them. When I first started this book, my fantasy was to get all the black a listers in Hollywood, right? And then I realized if I did that, I would have probably 11 people. He expanded his net, finding performance who may not be household names, but I built a healthy portfolio of credits, like Neil Brown junior, who you may know as Lawrence's quick talking best friend Chad on insecure. Are you rocking a purse? Beyoncé first. See him on carried on the porta potty. Expensive, I know 'cause I bought it. In the book, Brown takes on the role of John mcclane in die hard.

"A little more hopeful about the future. That's according to the optimism index from the national federation of independent business. The index posted its biggest monthly increase since June 2021. That said, small business owners still face a number of challenges. Inflation rose from the month of July to August, dashing hopes that consumer prices would go down. Bloomberg economics reporter Augustus arrive says that high costs are still a major concern. So I think the main takeaway of that report is not that small businesses are more optimistic. They're just less pessimistic. So what the numbers showed is that they still see inflation as one of the biggest challenges they're facing, they're still dealing with elevated costs when it comes to labor when it comes to material. That shows in a number. One third of owners plan to raise prices in the next three months, and that's the Bloomberg small business report. What is dedication? The thing that drives me every day is dead is very honest. We call them day to day for short. Every day he's hungry for something. Whether it's attention, affection, knowledge. And there's this huge responsibility and making sure that when he's no longer under my wing, that he's a good person. I think the advice I would give is you don't need to know all the answers. The craziest thing was believing that your dad knew everything. So as a dad, you felt like you had to know everything. You had to get everything right. It's okay to make mistakes. As long as it's coming from love, then it would kind of starts to work itself out. I want him to be able to

"Of fire devastated Rome. In response, emperor Augustus did something that had never been done before in the history of the empire. He created a permanent team of firefighters. Augustus understood that individuals alone can't protect themselves from fires. They need help from the community when one person's house is on fire, that creates a risk for everyone else's homes. And so what we've had these last few years is like a horrific global fire, the COVID pandemic has killed millions and upended economies. And we want to stop that from happening again. COVID, it's hard to overstate how awful it's been. It's increased the health inequities between the rich and the poor. Survival depended partly on your income, your race, the neighborhood you lived in. And so we should seize this opportunity to create a world where everyone has a chance to live a healthy and productive life. Also, a life free from the fear of the next COVID-19. When I was on the stage in 2015, I was one of many people who said, we weren't ready and we needed to get ready. We didn't. The speech actually was watched by a lot of people, but 90% of the views were after it was too late. So now I hope the need is clear. And of course, we've learned a lot during this pandemic, a lot of things were, well, a lot of things didn't work well. And so we have all that knowledge to build and prevention system. COVID-19 can be the last pandemic if we take the right steps. So how? What are these steps? Well, let's go back and look at what the Romans did. Think about how over time we've gotten good at preventing big fires. Fire prevention is kind of this pervasive thing. It's well funded. It's well understood. If an alarm went off right now, everyone here would know we're supposed to calmly gather, go out and wait instructions. We know that help would be on the way because we have lots of trained firefighters who practice. The United States alone has 370,000 full-time firefighters. Even more than I guessed that number would be. We also have access to water. The United States, for example, has almost 9 million fire hydrants. And so that type of investment, that type of practice, that type of system is what we need to stop pandemics. Now often in movies will have pandemics, and I'm always impressed with what takes place, an outbreak's detected, very quickly, literally within days, doctors are.

"The universe began some big bang under the name stuck but it really wasn't until the late nineteen sixties that it became family established as the the the party line among cosmologists. Now not only we confident there was a big bang but we can probe it's details particularly by looking at the fading afterglow. The heat left over from the big bang. And by data mining that with satellites.

Energy so's hawking one script asking what lies before the big bang is like asking what lies. North of the north pole does nothing. Not because there's some sort of land of nothingness north of the north pole but because they're in such places north of the north pole it's just not defined and in a simple model of the big bang which was the one that was popular back in the nineteen eighties. The one that Hawking made worked on that was it. There was no time before the big bang but that idea of time being part of the physical world and therefore coming into being with the physical world is feige very ancient.

"And is quite amazing. She's a woman of tremendous faith And has overcome from memphis Difficulties medical Horrendous medical challenges and emotional challenges as well and has just as as i said a person of great faith and A close relationship with with with spiritual issues as she has overcome tremendous adversities and and she's a very intolerant of of of of people who are disrespectful of others in aggressive microaggressions if you will That women experience and women of color particular allowed experience and she's quick to try to support These individuals and also to To address the those who are perpetrating. Some of these microaggressions and she she will Try to address that too and offer some pushback in that setting And she continues to do these things. She's a leader within the The pd community both the general law community but also the underrepresented minority groups. And so she when she was asked the question. How did she make it. She said she couldn't really explain it. Although her story has faith built into it which is one of the other I think sort of common denominators that you found For people that survive and learn to overcome When you think about all these people gas in this book and they've gone through You mentioned common humanity. Of course some things can't be solved necessarily but empathy because you might have the fiscal condition that takes a medical intervention and maybe some hope and a prayer and a miracle and so forth and so on but but the the common humanity piece Is this idea one where no man is an island. You know we're all in this together If someone is suffering others can lend a hand and help them get through it. Maybe they'll survive but they get through that part that's most difficult weighing on their weighing on their souls in your match. Yeah i think it's i think it's our reality. It's the reality of the world. it's I don't think it is. It's very debatable. If if you just look at it's there and I think what we hopefully can do with it though is by by by recognizing it and and allowing ourselves to Interact with these attitudes and and with these Opportunities that that our common humanity officers that we can Survive better and then without them and It can really help us. Often tad's to transcend. I mean people come out of these things with a a moines rich life. They come out stronger they come out healthier they come out boy to do their work or they find new new New lives that they can Live and enjoy and be productive. So i think it to the extent that people can be reminded of these natural opportunities and look to take advantage of him I it will give them an opportunity to to to improve their quality of life and to contribute more to the quality of life of of their fellow humans as a as they interact in. I saw that theme in the book. This idea of reinventing yourself. It happened with herman williams. When he suffered a heart condition can continue his profession but he did something else. I think claudia did did that as well to to to move forward i got a few questions. I'll talk about relating to the writing life because when you wrote this book it's not easy to take on tasks like this. Write a book and you did it with several co-authors and i think our listeners might be interesting to know how that process worked with you working with a coupla co authors in terms of planning and the writing and how you work together. Yeah well it. I think we worked together. Basically because we Have mutual respect and for the for ourselves and each other and I think that would probably be the major element and we We had the desire to to I do some good you know to to to I mean they're they're both professional writers. I'm a amateur rider. Vedic surgeon and but we all wanted to do some good and We were able to Recognize and i think what what we could each contribute and how it could best Come together you and your co co-authors. We'll just name him. John land david chen off. And then you had a forward to the book by coach k. Coast to coast szumowski. How did that come about well. It was good. Good luck We we we. I was very friendly with coach amoco. Who's a protege. He said harvard basketball coach. african american out steady Coach well recognize it in the field and he but kind of a protege of coach k. And so coach cage. China knew about us and what we do at had some interest and it was just a spontaneous thing initially and so but we've tried to get him involved that we we're looking maybe doing some other things around that One of the things being ally ship you know how how do people different ethnicities and races and genders worked together to achieve certain ideals by being allies and that certainly applies in no small degree to athletic teenage. You wanna maximize your ls ship on a team and you wanna have mutual respect and appreciation understanding shedder anyway so common human interests common interests in humanity Sorta we recognize what coach k. Had some some interest in that so we brought a may i ask them to sort of collaborate with us a little bit and who knows what war we might do with that. But that's that's sort of the way that happened s. So as we wrap this up and thank you for spending so much time today with us on this topic but as we wrap this up as you say you're in your knife decade given all you've experienced here what you've learned from all these persevering people who had some very difficult circumstances That you discussed in the book What what kind of parting message would you say to those out there. Who are going through some form of adversity right now. I guess the first would be to try to look around and see if there is someone some resource Either.

"And two other people so to say i agree and i think people struggling with trying to figure out what they're going to do in their act three after they've had a career all their lives find something that's purposeful find something. Put your yourself into that you can think can do good for others and You know if you're doing you're not thinking as much you're doing so you know Another another thing you mention Is empathy talk about how empathy might be helpful to the survival. That's a very important. Were in a very important reality an ideal to strive for And it empathy helps the healthy but it helps the help her As much if not more and actually as you as you exercise it and you see it and you benefit from it are you contribute through it. it really is as one of my colleagues Connected the dots. It's really a form of love and People for example. There's a their studies that show that when a doctor expresses some empathy clearly The patient is more gratified. The patient does better. The patient feels better. The doctor feels better. The burnout is less in in doctor. Who offers some empathy and It's it's it's part of the equilibrium equation. I i guess about a common humanity and We we encourage when we sort to talk about healthcare disparities and providing equitable care. We encourage the doctor to quote unquote. Humanize the patient Show some this take even if you just talk about the weather. Everybody experiences the weather by a talks about the women. I if you just have a common identity around the the weather the latest baseball score but in just a little a minute just to let patient oh that you recognize him or her as a fellow human as another human being Some of my colleagues have even talk about addressing patience. Good morning my fellow human and So but it does. Show satisfaction. Let's burn out on the part of physicians. And is this thing worth considering. And we're thinking about an empathy is very very importer. After that one point i noticed that over the over my years must sixties now. Originally doctors took a lot of time. They did get to know you now. They're under a lot of pressure. From from the people they work for and the insurance companies you know to kind of get in there and get the job done and get out and so those that really take that little bit of time even if as you said a couple minutes to to personalize and have a little conversation it does kinda relax the patient a little bit in that process. Well let's do this. Empathy is one of the things That comes to mind when you think about the stories in this book. Because you know if you haven't experienced these things you see what these people are going through and If you try to think about you know you being in their situations Maybe gives you a better perspective on how good you really have it. Because you tackle a number of a number of circumstances in this book. I mean if you look at the table of contents you've got you got Sexual abuse You have people who are suffering You know physical illnesses at birth with down syndrome. You get accidents happen this guy who slammed as a wrestler spinal cord entry but then comes back from that somehow. Miraculously you've got cancer. You got different things but then there are a couple of examples that you use that are doctors. One of whom is speaking of empathy. Top katina who is Sort of embedded himself in a part of the world that not many people know anything about and i think they said it even get here. Hope he doesn't leave talk about tom. Katina minute what he what he does. He's amazing been awarded. The aurora cries As ana as a recognition as an amazing on an amazing recognition at a precursor to the nobel prize quote unquote. Some people. think that's not official in any way. But he is amazing. I mean he as a as a physical specimen able to do the amount of clinical work that he does amount of surgeries that he does the amount of care that he gives under tremendous Circumstances in the stamina. I i mean. I don't know how he does the amount of work that he does but he he obviously has tremendous support and and well coordination ex it must have superb management of of the nurses and the other who helped him and work with him and It's it's interested in terms of his overall humanity even his decision to marry one of the nurses schools A native of african a mixed marriage if you will and She worked with him and they work very well together and she said it keeps them you know gives them a little spark of Encouragement and enthusiasm to say with some of the not just a huge medical problems. They had problems with financing paying their employees. And all but it's just a marvelous example a tremendous amount of work physical and mental and emotional being big done by this fantastic individual. And he just there he just keeps going apparently. Yeah just vast perspective isn't it. It's new the nuba mountains incident sedan. And he has the only doctor for four hundred square miles And so that is quite a sp- the varsity there of course is the environment and what he's facing and trying to do it all alone from a different perspective. You wanted to highlight another person. The but cloudy.

"And coach today have been a trying experience or americans on both sides of the political spectrum. Indeed we have too often lost track of the various trait that makes the good great and the great even better and what that is is our common humanity. Most of us at some point will be struck by one. More major ed traumas violent crime domestic violence rape child abuse a serious automobile accident. The sudden death of a loved one a debilitating disease a natural disaster or war. This is a quote from southwick and charney and they wrote if you are lucky then you have never encountered in the of these misfortunes but most likely you will some day. It is estimated that up to ninety percent of us will experience some of them during our lives ninety percent that makes adversity a more prevalent malady than even the common coal and far difficult to treat. There's no single prescription that can cure the ills or even relieved The symptoms but there is one well proven treatment for adversity. our common humanity that binds us together and instinctively leads us to want to help one another my knife decade of life has left me humbled with a deep respect and appreciation with those who have overcome more than i have currently and at least as much as i did as a boy emerging from the black saw i rely on a walker the support these days but that walker might just as well be the broad shoulders of those who boosted me up. When i needed it the most physical therapists helped me to walk again. Just as men like my stepfather and dr jones benson campbell in. Tony davis helped me to learn how to run. Both literally and figuratively no one succeeds in a vacuum. No one makes it a long and a truly great joy of life is celebrating our common humanity that has the potential to make each and every one of us better. We all so much more similar than different. Our humanness is greater than our cultural. Differences and differences in status are ranked or racial differences in the final analysis. We are just simply all fellow human beings and that's what's the ensuing. Chapters are going to demonstrate in stark fashion. You are about to meet a diverse group of people know two stories of the same but in a cumulative sense they offer hope through any number of ways and perspectives humanity translates into resilience all of our subjects faced adversity and found a way to overcome it benefited from the bonds of our common humanity. That unites all indeed. My fellow humans as woody guthrie famously sang in his classic song. John henry a man nothing but a man. Well well said her. Like to slide. Where it i. E is more prevalent malady than the common cold and even more difficult to to to cure to treat and then You talk about Role so much more similar than we are different. And you mentioned your own personal adversity. You suffered a stroke And you've had to deal with it versus. How was your journey then in that regard. Lucky i've you know i've been able i don't know how what percentage of my capabilities have remained in other words Ninety two percent. As as okay as i was before the stroke or am i ninety nine percent or am i sixty five percent. I don't really know. I don't really worry about it. I just am happy that i can do a lot of the things that i want to do. And and focus on that. And i do that and I i don't feel you're depressed. Discourage or I just keep keep moving and And that's that's that's my plan you know and if i can just You know get an getting a good enough lawyer to get my wife and my daughter to let me continue to work Auction your work a little bit. But they have to make a decision as i'll do that inside of family outside of them but no they they mean the best one me and they are helping tremendously to continue and and you're my professional colleagues as well so i i'm going to slow down and But my plan is to try to continue to do a few things. There are few things that that i want to try to push. Push agenda for a little bit as we go forward and that's great and You know guess you raise a number of questions in this book Number questions in this book. have we cope. Where can we find the resilient overcome the changes that are forced upon us. What might our future looked like. You know how to deal with trauma and you have a conclusion section. We're gonna come back and talk about some of these stories. But i just want to talk about these things for minute you you you dress these issues of. How do you survive how you learn. How do you overcome. And you mentioned four or five different things in this conclusion. Just like to talk about those for second One of them you mention is having a purpose living. Purposeful life talk about that. Yeah well Of course It gives you a target It gives you an incentive. it's gratifying. you know if you say. Here's here's what i want to try to do. And here's why. I want to try to do it and so let me try and to the extent that that you feel like It it's worth whatever it was. Whatever you pushing whatever it might be. is is very gratifying. And gives the incentive to keep going and and. I think that that's just part of our human nature we we want to is it Amid della out Philanthropic brain That part of our brain actually pushes us in the direction to do the right thing. And so the extent that we can grasp that and utilize that it will be satisfying to you and enter your fellow humans.

We sold coke and we went from carter car. And i had some conflicts there with some of the white people in in the in the vicinity and some of the people who work there but it was nothing. You know nothing horrible. Nothing compared to what it could be what we see unfortunately so i have sensitivity and i had ratio pushback and i was taught to push back and try to do the right thing and to try to support our justice in equality and on that On that point tear. You're you're raised in this environment. Where there's the separateness going on. And on the cover yearbook overcoming a notice that there are two hands are clasped. It looks like one Hand of a person of color one Potentially a white hand to hands coming together. Two different races clasping hands together talk about the symbolism of these class hands and how that ties into the thing with your book well it's It ties in the sense that it represents my belief and my hope and my experience of college anything but allies ship. If you will where people of different races and ethnicities can come together and can work together as allies to do the right thing and You know the right thing is no big secret as we have a propensity to know what's right but it isn't always so easy to do and I think that the symbol of the potential of overcoming can be greatly achieved by allied ship by working with people across racial and ethnic in gender barriers to to look for the right thing and into recognize that is in all of our collective best interest as fellow human beings to do the right thing. And when it's it's a win win situation rather than a lose lose situation at. I've had a little bit of experience with the war and was the military and And thinking about these things and observing these things and spending a year as a combat certain vietnam one of the things i learned and It I in some way symbolizes again. These these hands different color coming together and that is i believe that in wars there are no winners there. Only loses and greater losers. There are no winners. You don't win a war you you can't you. I check with my buddies at west point. I said my crazy am i right. Can you tell me of a war. Where one side. Only one did lose anything and Am i crazy to say this as no such thing as a war where they were winners is just loses and greater losers So i believe that. And i think that we we need to strive to have win win. Rather than lose lose situations around issues of war and take. Those hands is a one way of sort of symbolizing. The desirability of trying to relate style common humanity in a way that it's a win win rather than lose and a great great loser s very very. well said i'm wondering also is there any symbolism because it looks like there's a hand reaching down to grab another hand and and it's it's the it's the black hand reaching down to grab and pull the white hand up. Is there any symbolism there. Well We talk for half an hour cover arab debates about over and between by various people it influenced me and that i care about i learned from my wife and my daughter we went back and forth and they didn't like it and they liked it and which chan with with on and off so we just settled for the fact was mixed fried to rep these idea. Try to represent Our common humanity and various iterations of that and the fact that in overcoming we need to try to be collaborative and mutually respectful. And seek a win win situation.

Back to cobb's quote. my fellow. humans was greeting but it was also an announcement. He was acknowledging listening in front of him. As fellow humans by the same token he was reminding them that he was there. Bella human have a doctor back to cobb's by fellow humans salutation for my own speeches as a homage who both his greatness and the virtual nature of the message the phrase imparts because we are better and stronger together than we are apart. The nature of people coming together for common good seems so far fetched in these tribal times. We experienced at present where we allow what separates us define us far more than what bonds us together i for one refused to accept that if i've learned nothing else in my many years as a surgeon it's that everyone's the same when you open them up and one man leads the same as another these last four years. The last one in particular you know. Society.

And i don't mean that just in terms of our relatives athletic skills but just prominence in our names clearly he is a real icon but I i'll take whatever. I guess. I'm here i i admire him. I greatly and So it it. It's inspiring and it's sort of fun i i i don't mean any harm doesn't do anybody any harm makes me feel good and It is a challenge some somehow to be visibly the first in these situations and they carry stress and they certainly care there. This is satisfaction and they gratification. And i've had the good what should to You know need a lot of people along the way. And i tend to be a bit of a hero worshipping anyway. I mean i have a long list of people that that really inspired me. You know and And i i did aside with them just enough to get that at inspiration. Muhammad ali is an example. Malcolm x's that example bobby kennedy's example another a number. I my my colleagues and a number of my mentors. As i've come a long vertical school i i have peer mentors and So so i it. Kinda naturally feels good to to get a chance to be connected. A little bit with jackie robinson. Well that's nice did you. So what was your sport growing up. Well my sports were boxing football wrestling lacrosse and an almost tennis. I tried to electron. It's a lot but at my stepfather Was a boxing coach. And at a young age. I i enjoy learning a lot about boxing from him and then the other sports i just did in the normal course of things that i played football in high school and in college and i wrestled in high school in college and played lacrosse lacrosse. Not a sport down in memphis. But i learned in prep school I went to northfield mount hermon school and Was able to be on the lacrosse team there and really enjoyed that a great deal speaking of athletes. I couldn't get connected as publicly as i would have liked. But i play lacrosse against jim brown brown i. I don't know if you know that. But he was a excellent lacrosse player. Probably is good if not better in lacrosse uneven. His other sports especially that's interesting because I play college football and in the spring of my senior year. I didn't have. i didn't have spring practice. I saw these guys though in this ball around with stick and i walked over and so what are y'all doing cliff. Replacing the cross is a club. Team cannot join in. I did in the first game. I ever saw was the first lacrosse game. Played in and so like you. I played midfielder. It was a lot of fun but Yeah okay we digressed a little bit there. Let's jump back on topic here This book that you wrote you talked about You know always been kind of a hero or spring in effect. The the people that you write about in this book are heroes As well as that kind of what led you into this idea of riding a book to support these stories. Well yeah i think part of it i He rose in and mentors. I feel like. I learned a lot from other people as i traveled. And and again part of it was first of all it would be somewhat admired respected. And then i would. I i would Saudi seek the truth and what they were saying. And if it made sense to me i would. I would absorb that and and live by and and be helped by it And i think so. Admired things when i saw them. And i guess it was this kind of a natural evolution of that that particular characteristic and And i think the other the other. The other characteristic was that i I think that i just. I like people. I enjoy people and to see them be successful and try to share their success with others. I think was what i like. And then of course it saying that you have recognized and pointed out Also is this idea of our common humanity and how that resonates with these ideas of of success and being able to be a resilient And and and use these characteristics and as exemplified by others. Help us to do it in in our lives. Yeah we're gonna we're gonna talk more about those things and also about some of the specific people that she followed in this before before we do that you've overcome some adversity in your life to you. You grew up in the jim. Crow era Mfs and i was just wondering. I'm sure you face some prejudices yourself growing up how that Affected you what you saw and how that sort of drove your life experience. Yeah well yeah it it The environment of memphis I was in a culture which i call it kind of a middle class culture. But when i say that i mean middle class african american and that's not the same as middle class as we. We learn in the in the sociology. Textbooks of the overall dominant culture. But it was. It was a culture that imply sized education it emphasized What the person was doing as as as i would hear it as we would hear. What are you doing for the race You you're at You're elevating the respect of the race. Are you a detracted from respect. And so what are you doing. And so i would. That was the scene. The the people associated with were Friends or by parents and their kids who they were. They were schoolteachers. There were ministers were physicians and and so we heard that a lot and they were the people as i said the people who were admired the teachers and so forth so i just picked up on that and it became part of my persona was to to do what i could who Move forward for justice and and to move forward for pushing back against.

They were all that is most kind and beneficent and their neighbors of a higher class spoke of them as a most welcome addition to the little society of the neighborhood on their part tenants were greatly delighted with their new residents the arrangement of the house. Which would have been a trial too. Many was not so to them. In every respect croghan grange was exactly suited to them. The winter was spent most happily by the new of croghan grange who shared in all the little social pleasures of the district and made themselves very popular in the following summer. There was one day which was dreadfully annihilating hot. The brothers lie under the trees with their books for it was too hot for any active occupation. The sister sat in the veranda and worked or tried to work for in the intense sultry. -ness of that summer day work was next to impossible. They dined early and after dinner.

She longed to scream but her voice seemed paralyzed. Her tongue glued to the roof of her mouth. Suddenly she could never explain why afterwards the terrible object seemed to turn to one side seemed to be going round the house not to becoming to her at all it immediately. She jumped out of bed and rushed to the door but if she was unlocking it she heard scratch scratch scratch upon the window and saw hideous brown face with flaming is glaring at her. She rushed back to bed but the creature continued to scratch scratch. Scratch on the window. She felt a sort of mental comfort. In the knowledge that the window was securely fastened on the inside. Suddenly the scratching sound ceased and kind of pecking sound. Took its place then in her agony. She became aware that the creature was unpicking. The lead the noise continued. Any diamond pane of glass fell into the room.

Here's the story of lorraine hands berry lorraine hands berry was born on may nineteenth nineteen thirty on the south side of chicago. Her father carl. Augustus was a prominent figure. Within the city's black community having founded one of the first african american banks growing up lorraine and her three older siblings played host to a number of famous people including langston hughes. Wabc boys duke ellington and olympic gold. Medalist jesse owens. Despite their middle class status and cultural connections the hands berries were still subject to chicago's deeply ingrained. Housing segregation agreements known as restrictive covenants were widespread throughout the city. White property owners could collectively agree not to sell to african americans. This practice created a ghetto known as the black belt which ran through the south side when lorraine was eight years old. Her father secretly bought a home. In one of the so-called restricted heads in nineteen thirty seven when the family moved in a white mob attacked a brick was thrown through the window narrowly missing lorraine the local homeowners association filed an injunction for the hands berries to vacate lorraine her siblings were chased spat and beaten during their walks to and from school the supreme court of illinois doubled down on the legality of the restrictive covenant. And the hands. Berries were forced out of their home eventually the. Us supreme court overruled this ruling on a technicality. Thirty blocks subsequently opened up to black families across the south side while this ruling and the hands fight did not outlaw restrictive covenants. It did signal. The beginning of the end for the practice lorraine attended. Chicago's englewood high school where she became interested in theatre. She initially attended the university of wisconsin. Where she cut her teeth with the communist party but left after two years in one thousand nine hundred fifty lorraine moved to new york to be a writer by nineteen fifty one lorraine had found a home in harlem and began socializing with many of the great thinkers who had once visited her family back in chicago.

She began developing a play that she initially called. The crystal stair langston hughes poem mother to son she would later changed the name to a raisin in the sun.

The patriarch of the family has died and a ten thousand dollar insurance payout is imminent they the money to buy a house in the cheaper all white neighborhood nearby to they use it to invest in a liquor store and education lorraine based many of the characters on the families who rented from her father and with whom she attended high school the cast safer one character was entirely black lorraine was in her twenties and the play itself dealt with racism life in chicago's black belt and the pain of assimilation into white culture topics that were considered risky for the predominantly white theater. Going crowd it took over a year to raise enough money to put the play up. When it debuted in nineteen fifty-nine a raisin in the sun was the first play written by a black woman to be produced on broadway and the first to be led by an african american director lorraine was twenty nine years old.

The City of Carthage
"Welcome back to another episode. Five minutes in Church history on this episode. We're going to a place to a very famous city in the ancient world. The city of Carthage Carthage was first settled by the Phoenicians. This of course was a crucial city right as were on the Mediterranean Sea. Carthage came to be known as the master of the Mediterranean. Sea Trade after the Phoenicians was part of the PUNIC. PUNIC empire, and then under Caesar Augustus who reigned from fourteen BC to twenty seven ad. Of course, this is the Caesar Augustus of the Gospel Narratives in the birth of Christ under Caesar Augustus Rome to control of Carthage and it became a great Roman city. It was second only to Rome and the Roman Empire Rivaling Alexandria from time to time for that position, but most give it to Carthage. At any given time in these centuries, the population of Carthage would be two hundred fifty thousand people that had all the telltale signs of a Roman city. There were theaters in the republic buildings. There were the extensive baths. There were aqueducts for. Water across the city, and even into the fields for farming, there was an extensive Roman road system. Soldiers were kept. There was a very busy port city and a very prosperous city. It also has quite a role in church history. It was the home of Talionis. Of course. Is that great church father from one sixty to two twenty as the one who gave us the word Trinity, and brought together all that biblical teaching of who got is in his Trinitaria and being, and so we have the word trinity coined at Carthage and two Oh. Three Carthage was the site of the martyrdom of perpetual and Felisa toss those very brave young women, and the wonderful story of their martyrdom in their courage in their stand for Christ. Well, it was at Carthage. and. The to fifty CIPRIAN was bishop of Carthage. This was on the heels of the decian persecution very intense persecution by the Roman emperor Shas. And after the persecution, and there was some relenting of it, folks were allowed back into the church created quite a controversy was known as the Donna test controversy that raged throughout the church from the fourth to sixth centuries and a key player in that controversy was CIPRIAN Bishop of Carthage. In three ninety seven. It was the site of the Third Council of Carthage. And the topic of discussion was the New Testament Canon and coming out of that council was an affirmation of the twenty seven books of the New Testament, so it played a role in the Canon controversies in development of the Early Church and in four sixteen, the Palais jeans were condemned at Carthage, so it played a role in the development of the doctrine of original sin. So what a fascinating city with rich history both in terms of the ancient world end in church history well as Rome was sacked by the barbarians in four ten carthage was sacked by the vandals and four, Twenty Nine Carthage became the capital of the vandal empire which spanned across that great north. Coast, and of course that North African coast had the Mediterranean Sea to the north, and the vast Sahara desert to the south. Is Long came on the scene, the six hundreds, and began to threaten from the East and Right at the end of the six hundred at the battle of Carthage Carthage fell to Islam. It was dominated by Islamic control. There was a brief time during the Crusades when Carthage was retaken, but only for a short time. It remained Muslim throughout the era of the reformation and right onto the present day. Carthage in the present day is a suburb of Tunis. Capital city of the North African nation of Tunisia. Tunisia's the first government North Africa to give protection for religious freedom. But the nation itself is still dominated by Islam and while there is a church. They're going way back to those early centuries. It is still a church that suffers persecution in our present day.

Joint Stock Company responsible for the colonization of New Zealand in the eighteen hundreds. It's and director Edward Gibbon. Wakefield believed that a successful colony needed to attract a balance of capitalist laborers. The company claimed to have purchased land in the Cook Strait, read and established settlements at Wellington and Nelson. While the Europeans were purchasing land in New Zealand representatives of the British Crown and Mary, Chiefs signed the Treaty of White Tonky. In May of Eighteen, Forty Lieutenant Governor William Hobson declared British authority over New Zealand. Since the Treaty of Weitang, he was signed. There has been debate over its terms, interpretations and differences between the Mary text and the text. The treaty was meant to recognize Mary ownership of their lands and give Mary people, the rights of British subjects that said many Maori were later dispossessed of their lands. Anyway the New Zealand Company promoted the country as a Briton of the south, and it began to organize large scale migration to New Zealand. But the fertile land required for all the Europeans migrating to New Zealand, did not actually exist. The company was failing. Because arable land was limited land titles were uncertain. There were two mini absentee landowners, and there was no real way to generate income through exports. By eighteen forty three, the immigrants were struggling with food supply, and the company was basically bankrupt. Throughout the early eighteen s more European, emigrants Nelson despite conflict between Mary chiefs over claims to the land being sold. But when it became clear that there was not enough arable land around Nelson for the immigrants, the company began moving forward with plans to survey the wire planes. MARY TEVES NOT TOWA TEI row per ah-ha and others were adamant that the company had not purchased this land. Despite this opposition, the company ordered survey parties to begin work in the UAE Ravelli. So, some of the chiefs. Era and victim the surveyors they burned some of the shelters that have been made from local materials and destroyed some of the surveyors equipment. Police Magistrate Augustus. Thompson issued a warrant for the arrest of involved teeth on charges of arson. A group of about fifty special constables were sent to wire it to execute the warrant. They were armed but inexperienced. On, June seventeenth eighteen, forty three, the company party arrived on the eastern side of the to a marina stream. Mari gathered on the other side of the Stream. It's unclear exactly what triggered the fighting? Though some are accounts, say that a wife may have died I from a stray shot, regardless of fight ensued and twenty two Europeans, and somewhere between four and nine Mary died. Many European immigrants feared that this was the beginning of a larger Mary Insurrection When the new governor Robert Fitzroy arrived in New Zealand that December. He was tasked with
A Way to Garden with Margaret Roach
Bill Noble on Garden Design
"Now. You were not a garden designer. Then and here you came to this place, and there's views of mountains and feels, and it feels like a big open place, but. You weren't a garden designer. SORTA figured out how to make a plan. And you speak about in the book about measuring the House and measuring the distance to things and kind of drawing and taking photos and kind of pinning up that and some inspiration on almost like a mood board to get started like you know to figure out what you were going to do, yes. Yes I came here not as a gardener. But I felt that I needed to learn really quickly. And and the way I learned was that. I had been farming and. As I. Tell Maybe in the book I made. Five thousand dollars at it. My first year felt great, and I made five thousand dollars at farming my last year and I'd had enough. And I landed a seasonal job restoring a half miles worth of white, pine and hemlock hedges at the Saint God's national historic site, in Cornish, which was the garden of Augustus Saint Gaudens and was part of an artist colony that included architects, landscape, architects and artists. Like Gerald Plot and Ellen Shipman And I really immersed myself. In the Garden Gardens, but it, but then in learning about the gardens that those artists had made. A really came to gardening? As an art form I. And then I had to learn. How to draw. and. Deal with hard scape, which still not very good at. but the National Park. Service was great about supporting. It staff. By providing training and I spent a couple years running down to Boston to Cambridge to the Radcliffe Institute and to the Arnold Arboretum and guarding the woods and learning the trade there. Okay, I'm applying it. on the job at Saint Gaudens and here and in some of the other Corner Gardens. I see so. One of my favorite parts of the book, besides all those big leafed plants in that was seventy foot, long border or something. It's just magnificent. Is that you make a list in the book that I find especially helpful I think you call it guiding principles and and I know this was after the fact because you started making the garden in nearly thirty years ago or twenty years ago, and you wrote the book just recently, but but it's good for those of US making Gardener Getting Ready to find tuna. Revise our gardens to think about guiding principle so is this something like this sort of self assessment? What do I really care about? Is this something you do with clients when you first visit there places? If the let me get away with it, yes! And, sometimes, sometimes more successfully than than others. Yeah I don't have a form. That I had a a client, but I I WANNA. I as a designer WANNA be able to understand the context. The built context, the living context the landscape context. And the social context as well as how the Oman Gardner is going to use the US the space use the garden, and what their what their goals
