"And of course, my Twitter feed is at Josh block D.C. so folks want to jump on the Twitter that there I am. So thank you for that, rich. I really appreciate it. Yep, there I be. Yes. All right, Josh. Thank you. It was a pleasure. There were so many things I wanted to get into. We got to do it again when you're not in Baku and 8 hours ahead in tomorrow. But lots to talk about with NATO and with Netanyahu and China and so much more, plus there was the World Cup so we'll arrange the time to have you come back. Thank you, sir. I look forward to it. Thanks, rich. You got it. All right, now, of course, I want to give you the phone number if you want to join the conversation 8 6 6 5 O 5 four 6 two 6 8 6 6 5 O Jimbo is the phone number that we have a report about Iran and what's going on in Azerbaijan. But we also want to give you a peek inside North Korea. What it's like on that side. And to do that, we've got June by June by is a filmmaker who has made a film. And this film, the other side of the mountain, is probably one of the most eye opening films. And if you want to check it out, it's that, oh, SOM film dot com. Jun Bai, welcome to the program. Yes, I'm glad to be with you tonight. Yes. Thank you. Thank you, sir. Tell us a little bit about your background. How did you get involved in filmmaking? Oh, yeah. Yes. My book tell all the stories, but I was born in those grade 1937. And leave the 12 years and then came as a refugee, came to South Korea and lived there for 11 years and then come to United States in 1959 as a foreign exchange student under the full break in Africa center for exchange should program. So I went to the university. Degree. It can get engineering. And I started my business and if you ask me how I studied to make a movie, is that your question? Yeah, I mean, obviously your story, you left North Korea as a refugee, which I think is remarkable. You end up in the United States. It sounds like the American Dream. You go to the university of Missouri, you're in engineering, and then how do you start the filmmaking? Oh. I said that. I must say that as a working engineer, a company like ExxonMobil and I want morning, I heard AQ. I think it's Bay Area San Francisco Bay Area. Public radio station and broadcasting. It was 1997. There are hundreds of children in people in North Korea variations. Wow. And you know, I was a following anything like that. But that podcast shot me here and I talked to my wife and I said that's my home country was born and it should not happen. Kids could not buy so many of them because of starvation. They talk about to go back and see what really happening. And went on a story true and whether or not North Korea will accept me. And whether or not I want to help them. I mean, I have the question myself. Because I did not wait for my immediate country for so long. So looking out to find a way to go there and there's stories out there and all that. But many time with open images in the farmers and actually in recent history, maybe the history of North Korea. And the only non North Korean ever been in a place that I had been to. Like all villages in the farmers and such. Yeah. We see a lot of YouTube and foreign tourists go there two, three days a little with a strict guideline of North Korean government and to see what they love empathy. Yeah. In my case, the first thing is I was born at Citi where great founder of the leader Kim Il sung is the grandfather of the current region. His mother first place and in North Korea is very treasured in a family member. And different than some other civilization that they all loved by the of course. But North Koreans that particularly if you pick them to the song and they sing song about mother because the story of a murder. And so anyway, so that has a connection into government and what lucky enough to send some good like a footsteps to North Korea and they use the very special occasion. Give me some support today. The cook is that I sent it for a week before that ceremony. So all the hundreds of kids, we see those pretty in television, new U.S. and the kids with a red knob. And that cookie served them like 500,000 of them. It's the breakfast cookies. And they were very impressed by, you know, with this guy said such a wonderful, the right things at the right time. So they planned out about B and my first and so on and so forth, so they have allowed me to come and see and the fact that I have something to do with plastic they thought that they may find a way to get some personal from me. So that's my beginning of aids to orphanages. And obviously, it's really terrible. We see stories in the series and children and Ukraine are today and all that. But in Korean stories, kind of unique, regard it really 6 years that country was under Japanese colonization that wanted to be free from Japan. And that's 6 years like a World War in the liberated but the country was divided, there was Russia and the employment because United States influenced and Churchill rules built in the yalta conference to decide the two.

"Because fuck them, like I'm completely uninterested in sharing the space with them. Like if you get that there's something more revolutionary going on here, great, but it seems like you just fucked up a lot of this for us with all this unwanted leverage and bullshit of not holding your keys, which is great that now that there is the idea of not your keys not your coin has become so resounding loud that it can not be done either anymore. And to me like this is truly what the political is. It is the discovery that holding your money as a self sovereign individual unlocks a totally new world where people are actually self sovereign in a meaningful way. And the state is limited. Meaningful way. Because look, the money supply has shrank 3% and this is the worst global recession that's ever happened. You get 4% of the global population on Bitcoin, everything collapses. And like, does this mean an absolutely and to be clear, anarchy does not mean chaos. It's the restoration of real order. And that's a world that I'm excited to see come into fruition. So let's use the last part of the show. We have about 15, 20 minutes left. Let's talk about that world, right? Because I, for example, Eric, I have a hard time picturing that world because I don't think it's ever existed before. There's always been a sovereign. There's always been a state, right? The Romans did the same thing. They debased the currency, right? They literally the exact same thing. So I don't think we've ever lived in a society where even the poorest individual has the ability to earn and keep all his property. What will that world look like? And how will that change the relationship between stated individual? Of course, sovereign individual makes the case and I know and look, guys, the reality is there's two types of utopias, right? There's the collectivist utopia, which is we're all equal to each to each benefit, whatever that's saying is, right? To each according to their need. There we go. Thank you, Eric. And there's a libertarian utopia, right? And both are fucking utopias. Both are not real. I mean, there's a reason that anarchism and communism were at one point in time a single movement, and it was only after marks had presented the communist manifesto that the leader of the anarchist faction Baku showed up because the fuck is this nonsense. We're going to have like a dictatorship of the proletariat to overthrow the state, right? No, you're fucking moron. We're absolutely against the state. This can't be done with the state any way. Fucking diff shit. And so at that point, they split directions in anarchists kind of became its own scattered movement.

"And that is actually what killmonger was doing too, right? Is these beautiful little parallels that are set up throughout the entire movie that are just so just so rich. I love that whole scene. That was so good. Oh man. So good. So shuri like comes out of the ancestral plane sort of fueled, I guess, in a way of revenge from having spoken with killmonger and then she realizes, oh, she has the strength of the Black Panther. So she becomes the next Black Panther. And it's interesting because she talks with, I think she talked with M'Baku after that. I want to say. And Michael was almost kind of giving her like, you would think would be contradictory advice, you know, the jabari tribe being more kind of shunning technology and things like that. And Baku almost giving her advice for like peace and instead sure he wants vengeance, you know. And like orders just immediate counter attack on the more and the talo con, of course, okoye is no longer the general of the Dora milaje. Now it's Io, who's the general and then shuri gets the new armor, the midnight angel armor that she had been making. Gives it to okoye and then okoye recruits a neck to join her. So then the wakandans all set out on this big ass ship to try to set a trap for namor to try to lure everyone to the surface. And it's a huge epic battle. You think it's funny 'cause you're like, oh, the wakandans got it, they're like, oh no, the towel con's got it. It really sort of goes back and forth. It's interesting how when she talks with RiRi how do they get the idea of how to weaken them more by just exposing him to heat to dry them out. So like, you know, there's this whole interesting elemental symbolism cycle which I do want to talk about between like earth fire air and water with that goes throughout the film and so then you know it comes to near the end of the movie. Both the Black Panther shuri and the more are fighting on this like desert beach, you think that sure is about to kill him and then she gets all these flashbacks and sort of I guess messages from the ancestors and spares his life and then they make an alliance the more accepts that the battle ends and so rere ends up going back to Boston and this is all the movie kind of mostly ends off, I would say at that point. Of course there's this mid credit scene which happens afterwards. We're sure he goes to Haiti to finally do the ritual that she was about to do with Ramona at the top of the movie, which was burning the funeral robes. The funeral ceremonial robes. And she does so on the beach, it's finally able to grieve. And then the Kia is joined by a young boy who is her son toussaint. I think he says she's safe in the movie. And toussaint tells shuri. Toussaint's my Haitian name.

"It, get it. The CFOs that don't don't. Head to NetSuite dot com slash home run for a special one of a kind financing offer. NetSuite dot com slash home run. We'll get to them in a second, but in terms of the ball, that is the thing that I have been watching the most. And it was interesting. I went back and looked at like 2019, which was the last real regular season fans from the start, right? I got to about 40 guys, I believe. Of who hit 20 home runs or more. And the list and the number at that point was 24. I hadn't even gotten into the high 20s at that point. That's how many guys to your point about, you know, not everybody being able to drive the ball to the ballpark. These are back to the baseballs that I think most of us remember, where there was a time where it was power hitters and guys who could who had that attribute that were doing it, not everybody. And so I think it has a level to playing field and it has brought a little more value to guys who hit the ball on the line. It's also going to affect how analytics were data was a good product, right? Because if the ball has changed that much, the data was based off of a lot of it recently on that ball that we were using. And it gave us a specific velocity a specific launch angle that usually got the ball to ballpark. We're seeing those numbers and balls aren't getting out of the ballpark anymore, John. Yeah, absolutely. It certainly affects everything. And I think it was a good idea. Yeah. It was a reaction in 2019 where everybody was a home run hitter again. You know, going back to like the steroid years and they finally said, let's make the game a little the way it should be, which is I mean, it's not 1968, but obviously the batting averages are down. The home runs are down a bit. But I like it better that we have, you know, real home run hitters, and we have real stars, not everybody's going to hit 20 home runs. And you know, other players will have their roles and do their thing. And you know, I think it's positive. We won't get into it. I like the fact that they're going to legislate against the shift next year because we got to get that batting average up. That's a debate for another day, but I know a lot of people are much very much against that, but, you know, this has been gone for 15 years when the race started the shift and players just have not been able to adjust. I think I've given up on that. So the one thing one thing you've mentioned was the AL MVP, which is interesting. Yeah, you know what? I think he's probably the favorite because of what he can do going forward. I mean, he's obviously been very good already, both ways. But it was a vote today. I think it's today, I think it was a judge or drought. Although, you know, what has been pretty amazing to him. The angels, they got three MVP candidates, right? But I think it's probably at the moment. And I agree that, you know, if you look at the big picture, macro, as they say, the year who's the favorite otane is probably the favorite, but right now, if you had a vote, I think it's a trout judge vote. And you know, it's great to see proud judge Aaron Arnold Machado, you know, I think that's the way it should be. It'll be interesting to see if this, if this last the whole season, how this will affect voters, right? Because it almost seemed like an obsession with Mike Trout before Otani became, you know, who he was and Mike Trout was hurt. And so now you're going to be given the choice again of ohtani doing what he does, although he may not reach the same numbers that he got to last year versus what Mike Trout has done pretty consistently throughout his career when healthy. It'll be interesting. And then you have the whole judge effect in New York. So it's been fun to watch these guys do their thing. Go ahead. I just wanted to vote tiny had just a very good year both ways. You know, it's a 30 home runs. And in the year that he had last year pitching, whether he gets the MVP because he did both really well or is somebody 45 homers with a three 20 average or whatever Vlad did last year. You know, last year was obvious thing, even though some people yelled at me should be Vlad, it was pretty obvious, so Tony was the MVP. I mean, he had 50 home runs or something walk pitching. I mean, that was clear, but it'll be interesting to see if he hits just as a regular, very good year, 30 home runs, while pitching like this. What the voters say, because I think that would be a difficult choice. All right, let's slide to the American League John and last week, Cody and I were having this conversation, and we said this next week, who is leading, we said, this time next week, who is leading the AOS. And I believe Cody said it would be the Astros, and he was spot on. And the Astros have won 17 of their last 21 Alvarez. Every time I turn on the TV, he's hitting the home run. This is not all that surprising for the Astros. I think you've been on the Astros from the very beginning. If I'm not mistaken as well. Yes, I had them in the World Series, right? And then two weeks ago, I was like, we switched off and I'm glad that Cody picked up with the correct prediction there that it would be the Astros. We'll see. I mean, obviously 17 of 21 is pretty good. They're pitching is outstanding. I think they're fourth or 5th at baseball, which is not surprised at all. And pitching and they have most of those they've lost some good stars. Obviously, we know with Correa out, they've got Pena now in who's been really good. They lost Springer. They really didn't replace him. I know dusty wanted martay, a lot of people probably wanted more today, but you know, they still have a really good team. So, I mean, on paper on the president, it seems like there should be the favorite. I don't think that's a surprise. Those other teams are interesting though. I mean, Seattle was a popular pick. I had them going to the playoffs after watching them. I know they want two out of three of them. Questioning my sanity there, we'll see. I've always been known as a Mariners tractor. I probably should have stayed that way. We will see. I mean, obviously, Crawford's doing great, ty France. That's your guy. You picked that out when I think he was in grammar school or something. And so good give you credit there. You know, and the angels they're the most fun team too. I always put them on. I got the two TVs working so early. I'll look at the two New York teams in some of the New York Post, but late, you know, I used to look at the Padres, the Dodgers, all different teams, angels, you know, they've got Otani, they've got trout, they've got this award guy doing fantastic. You know, they're a fun, fun team. I don't know if they're going to make it. I mean, I still think the ice storms win that division, but the angels are a lot of fun to watch. Yeah, now the angels, the angels have become very exciting. And they're getting pitching. Will it last? I think we'll have to wait and see, but certainly they've been to me one of the most exciting teams in baseball to watch and watch on TV. The AL lease, we talked a little bit about Aaron judge, but the Yankees as a whole are look well. They look pretty solid right now. And judge is healthy Stan's healthy Rizzo's doing his thing. We thought this division would have been was going to be with the NL west is. But this could vision might be over before it even gets started. If Toronto doesn't really kind of pick up the pace a little bit. Yeah, it's kind of shocking. I mean, I thought Toronto was the favorite in that division. I thought they'd win that division. Easily. We had Aaron Boone on right before the season on a hot stove and I basically said to him, look you're managing a third place team and later I did apologize for that because it was probably a rude thing to say not only wrong but at the right thing to say and you know there are a lot better than I thought he liked them. You know, he's always positive about everything. So it's hard to tell publicly he's not going to say.

"Isn't real time. This doesn't work for this medium. Yeah. Maybe if we recorded a podcast during the Civil War, maybe this would work, but maybe. Maybe. So I'm your host Nolan Sykes, joined as always by Joe Weber. Whoop whoop. What's up? Yeah, so if James gets his Internet fixed, he'll call in. You'll just have to stick around and listen to see if that happens. I'm just going to have to listen to the very last minute to see if he stops by. Yeah, but this week we are talking about the science family. Carlos signs junior is probably one of the more popular drivers on the grid these days. Because he's so handsome. He's a very handsome fellow. It just seems like a good dude. He's a great driver too. I think his parts on drive to survive have really kind of helped his popularity for sure. Absolutely. Especially online. I think it's in season two or three where they focus on Carlos and they're like at the signs estate of Spain and I'm like, man, I wish I was at that dinner. That looks so nice. I just want to see it be at the table and just enjoy good content. Just eating like jamon jamon iberico next to this beautiful Lake. Yes. With all the science family. I would just sit there and just enjoy being there. I won't even say anything. I know very little Spanish. They probably all speak English, but I'm excited for today's episode. So without further ado, let's get into it. Carlos signed senior was born on April 12th, 1962, in Madrid, Spain. Carlos was good at every sport he tried. He won the Spanish squash championship at age 16. And was good enough at soccer or football to be invited to try out for Real Madrid. His favorite team to this day. Damn, this guy's good. Yeah, what? Have you ever played squash? I don't even know what that is. I play pickleball, which is like squash light. Oh, interesting. My parents love pickleball. It's very popular in a task here right now. I think everyone's parents are into pickleball. It's easy on the knees. Oh, did they call it pickleball because it's like a different squash? Because a pickle is a pickled cucumber, which is technically a squash. No. A cucumber is not part of the squash family. Okay, well, we can debate that at another time. Carlos spent two years in law school before he dropped out to pursue a career in racing, like his brother, Antonio. Carlos started racing in 1980, and by 1986, he finished second in the Spanish rally championship, driving a Group B, Renault 5 turbo. He won the Spanish rally championship in 1987 and 1988, driving a Ford Sierra RS Cosworth and made his first appearances in the world rally championships with Ford around that same time. The rear wheel drive Ford Sierra struggled to compete with the all wheel drive cars on the WRC stage. So Carlos left Ford for Toyota in 1989. Oh wait, is this the year that they cheated? No, but I'm sure we'll talk about that. That was a mid 90s. Oh, and also I've got egg all over my face because cucumber definitely in the squash family. Yes. Score one for Nolan. I'm keeping track. Carlos's time at Ford wasn't a total loss, however. It was there that he teamed up with Luis moya, who would leave Ford with signs and remain his co driver for the next 15 years. Signs got on the podium three times in 1989 in his Toyota celica GT four ST one 6 5 Supra turbo and probably would have won the final race of the season, the RAC rally, if it weren't for mechanical failure in the final stages. He finished 8th overall in total points despite starting the season with four retirements in a row. It's pretty clear that science has a lot of town at this point. I mean, he's been in the game for 9 years now. People know he's good. He's just got to get that bit of luck. So 1989 that the super was still part of the celica line or what? Yeah, I mean, Supra was just a trim of celica. Yeah, I know that, but I thought that it had become its own car by 1989, but I guess I'm wrong. Toyota salka GT four ST one 65, Supra turbo. I think they only called the boxy loom once, the celica Supra. And then when it got more curvy, that's when it became just a silica on its own. Yeah, I love my curvy car. I love my curvy car. By 1999, it was on. Science drove the celica GT four ST one 6 5 to his first WRC victory at the acropolis rally in Greece and followed up with victories at rally New Zealand and the 1000 lakes rally in Finland. The 1000 lakes rally is driven on wide and smooth, gravel roads, and is considered the fastest event in the world rally championship. When I used to play dirt all the time, dirt rally, Finland was definitely my favorite because this is a good track. That's so fun. So fast. This is where that Hyundai I 20 flipped over, like crazy. This course is often called the Grand Prix on gravel. Signs was the first non Nordic driver to win the thousand lakes rally in the 40 year history of the event. Jesus. This is one of the many times that science was the first to do something in WRC. And perhaps it was a foreshadowing of his son's aptitude for driving on tarmac and form of the one. Signs went on to win the last race of the year, the aforementioned RIC rally to capture his first WRC driver's title in 1990. He beat out Lancia's Ariel and cancun, becoming the first driver outside of Lancia to win the championship since the start of the group a era in 1987. Signs nearly defended his title in 1991. He won three of the first four rallies, but then rolled his car in Australia in a wreck that left him in a neck brace. Signs went into the final RIC rally up one point on his rival canon, but ultimately lost, driving the final stages with an overheating engine. And signs points totals, one 50 and one 43, both broke the previous record set by signs in 1990. Dude, I just lost my fantasy baseball match by one point. And it's killing me. Oh, dude, are you going to have to do some weird wager? No, I think we only put ten bucks in, but it's just the principle. I see. Well, better luck next time, Joe. Thank you. Signs one is second and final WRC drivers championship in 1992 in dramatic come from behind fashion. Signs and moya left Toyota the following year due to a conflict of interest regarding motor oil sponsorship. Signs the driver was sponsored by Repsol. Toyota's new sponsor was castrol. Signs and moya had no choice, said moya quote, if we didn't leave Toyota in 1992 to go to Lancia, we probably would have been the kind of drivers that would have remained on the same team. Maybe forever at Toyota. Why is that a bad thing though? I don't know. There's a lot of implications in there that I don't really understand. I feel like a lot of drivers like, you know, pick one team and then stay with it forever. Yeah, I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing. Just maybe he's just talking about getting like stagnant. Yeah, maybe. Staying on the same team would not be the way things worked out for signs. Signs would switch teams 6 times in the next 12 years with plenty of big wins, but more bad luck along the way. Uh oh. Uh oh. Foreshadowing, dude. Science first and only year with Lancia was a disaster. Launcher had won the manufacturer's championship every year from 1987 to 1992, but when signs arrived in 1993, the writing was on the wall. According to signs, the evolution. The evolution of launcher stopped one year before. I have good memories of the people but the car was science trailed off, not one to talk negatively about anybody..

What Did Dennis Prager Do During the Height of the Cold War?

"Tell us what you did as a young man during the height of the Cold War. I was in my very early 20s. I was a graduate student at Columbia University at the school of international affairs. And it had a number of affiliated Institutes, Russian institute, Middle East institute, East Asian institute, African institute. I was a member of Middle East and Russian. I studied Russian and on a visit to Israel, my third year in college, so it's even before that. I was asked by someone I knew in Israel and Israeli friend. Would I be prepared to be sent into the Soviet Union to smuggle in religious items to Jews? Because they were not allowed to have them by Christians were not. And to bring out smuggle out the names of Jews who wanted to leave. And they thought that I would be the ideal candidate being an American, so I'd be somewhat protected by my passport. And knowing Hebrew and Russian, so I was sent for a month, and it was obviously a tense month. That was a followed most of the time. Where did you travel in Russia in the Soviet Union? Moscow, what was called then Leningrad, which is back again to St. Petersburg, and then Baku Azerbaijan. The first westerner to visit the synagogue there in decades. It was literally literally underground. And the stories I'm not going to get into now, but obviously there were life form what the effect that it had to see a young western Jew. Who knew the religion and who could, I was always called up to do something to show my knowledge of the liturgy, because they had been told that the Jews of the Soviet Union were told that Judaism is dead. And they shouldn't even bother thinking about it because Jews outside of Russia are outside of the Soviet Union, no longer practice it and have assimilated. And here I am 21 years old and I'm able to lead the prayers and read from the

But although they were bilingual, our parents made it a point that all of us would only speak English. Which was fine with me. Because that meant that a, my Saturdays weren't preoccupied with going to Chinese school and B, I was convinced that not speaking Cantonese was vital to demonstrating that it was truly an American despite clearly not being white. However, when it came to talking about white people and black people, my parents and their siblings, my uncles and ants always used the Cantonese terms for them, not the English ones. So my siblings and I learned to refer to white people as Baku is and black people as hockeys. No one ever told us the literal translations of these labels. They were simply the terms that Cantonese speaking folks used when referring to them. Naturally, I used them too without a second thought. But not within earshot of any buckwheat or haku is. You see, my parents never warned me not to use these terms in mixed company, but since they never did, then neither did I. I can't remember how. But when I was around 9 years old, I finally learned that Baku I mean white devil and haku means black devil. I've never looked into the historical roots of these derogatory terms, but I'm guessing that way back when people in China were first encountering white people in black people, they didn't have favorable impressions of them. All I know is that after I learned what we were calling our white and black friends and neighbors behind their backs, I felt extremely uncomfortable. Pretty much from that point on, I stopped using those labels. Even if I wasn't with white or black people. To this day, I cringe internally when I hear a fellow Cantonese American say buckwheat or hakku, because those terms sound like derogatory descriptions. Don't they? Now canceling these has been losing ground to Mandarin for some time now, and I have no clue what words and Mandarin are used in reference to black and white people. I'm sure if you're a Mandarin speaker, you do know. I just don't. With the enlightened desire that many around the world have today to stamp out all forms of racism, I'm hoping they Cantonese speakers today have dropped the demon half when they refer to white or black people. I don't know what that would sound like. Like white people would be back and black people would be hack. I don't know. I know that that's possible because even when I was a kid, I often heard my parents refer to white people with an alternate term, low fond, which means something like pale rice. Now, that doesn't sound dearly as bad as white devil, right? But just to be sure, I Googled loaf on right now and apparently it also means barbarian. Yeah. You see words do matter. Even the words we use when the potentially offended parties aren't within ear shot. So even if certain terms have been in use for centuries, I think we need to stop using ones that have racist roots or that clearly demean other people. And before we come up with new ones that we think aren't bad, we should probably ask the ones we're trying to describe how they themselves would like to be described. Like,.

"And we are in direct contact with most of them. But the first step to listing them is always that we crawl publicly available information from their websites and these crawlers they run them every day, basically, and always scrape the website for new information. So whenever a manufacturer would take a product out of their portfolio, we would recognize that and then reflect that directly in our index. But then they are not all information is available publicly. So we let them verify contact information to make sure that they are responsive to incoming requests. And then in the third step, we let them add data that goes beyond the data that is publicly accessible such as adding MSDS, technical data sheets or brochures and guests, I think there will be we still have a lot to do, but we are constantly working on it to improve this index. And I think that can be one of the biggest challenges for indie brands when they first get started, getting that paperwork is incredibly challenging at times. I mean, not all indie brands have the potential to work with those big suppliers. Sometimes they go through resellers who sell in small, very, very small minimum order quantities, and many of them will not provide the paperwork. So it's fantastic to hear that you're putting that on the platform. And that is then accessible. So then building on that question, what are the most innovative features of the cavallo portal? And the ones that you feel distinguish you from other platforms that offer this type of service. Yeah, just touched on our ingredient index. I mean, that's really the core of our of our application. And here we want to be the most comprehensive index. And this is both the breath of the ingredients and with more than 40,000 ingredients we are today have the largest index. But it's also the deaf. So we have up to 30 attributes per ingredient and this could be rather technically related attributes but then also a lot of marketing and sustainability related attributes. The sustainability attributes, that's quite interesting. Can you give me an example of one? So we split the sustainability attributes into different criteria. I mean, one would be claims that suppliers give the ingredients natural plant based or upcycled. And we have quite a long list of claims. But then there's another layer which would be certification. I also have different sustainability certification bodies like course was a true, with which we also partner to get always there the latest certified ingredients and that all together, then builds quite a comprehensive all of you of sustainability. So then building on that question further. I mean, natural ingredients are in such hot demand right now, not just by Indy, but also mainstream brands. So can you tell us more about cavallo's role in helping promote innovative green beauty solutions, which is obviously what our listeners are most interested in? Absolutely. So the first question is what does innovative green beauty mean? Are we talking only about plant based natural ingredients, but what is then about the origin of the ingredients? I mean, if they are associated, for example, with deforestation, like we would not agree that they would be green. But what about the performance? I mean, our solution then again is that we aggregate as many data points as possible like the mentioned sustainability claims. Certifications, both ingredient and company level. And then we constantly add new attributes to it. That's one aspect. Then another aspect is the content. So we want to provide a lot of educational content on our blog on our newsletter where we have a clear focus on Korean beauty related topics, which would not include only environmental sustainability, but also social sustainability or supply chain transparency. It's a lot about education as you clearly know, understanding the specifics, understanding of the chemistry, this could also mean that, for example, it might be that a synthetically produced brilliant is not necessarily less environmentally friendly than a naturally derived gradient. And then lastly, we are building currently a new layer on our search. I can intelligent search that helps to suggest and greener alternative to showcase green formulations with that. I mean, we believe that we have quite different entry points to the topic of Korean beauty. So with over, I think you said 40,000 ingredients listed in your database. Can you give us an insight into what's trending and maybe even predict some future trends for us? Yes, absolutely. People definitely want to see more natural and plant based ingredients in their beauty products. But they still want to make sure it works effectively. Other truth that's really such a big insight, but we see that very simple solutions often do not deliver performance wise. And obviously, consumers will then realize this over time and move to other solutions. Then yeah, we can see another trend, one that is quite close to my heart as well. So blood transparency on the environmental footprint of products like the calculation of the renewable carbon index for some ingredients looking at local sourcing. And then maybe like one trend on an ingredient level. We saw in the last year, 300% increase in search volume for Baku aisle, which is the natural alternative to retinal, but at least how it's branded. Our most trending ingredient of the last year. Wow. Well, that's good to know. We've been recently teaching on the couture as well. So that's great to hear. So in terms of the formulators, listening to this podcast, how can they best use cavallo? So can you explain not only how to sign up, but also how smaller brands and startups can make the most of cavallo. So for instance, is it feasible for indie formulators to obtain samples? Because in the past, it's been almost impossible to get this if you don't have a business address or you're not registered as a business already. So how should someone start.

"I wanted to make it really clear. Even though i frequently talk about it as a cutthroat environment it's competitive backstabbing blah blah blah. But the fact is in bad habits. You read the book. The the students are actually not particularly pilloried in the book. Right there's there are. There are manipulated. And so you see you see how i mean. Some of them are kind of have characteristics that are less pleasant or than others. But you see how everyone's weakness is pulled out and intensified that their their insecurities end up defining them and they beat. They behave badly because they are scared. And so that's kind of you know it's not that i don't want it. I'm not trying to get around this question of like you know how people behaved in grad school. But i do wanna contextualized it desist if of my book if you can say novel has visas. Is that These systemic structures are people behave badly when they get into a place that set up for them to behave badly where there's scarcity of resources where there's a rigid hierarchical structure with little hope of advancement. And yet you know. Endless work is to is required of you. Because you are. Your work is considered to be your the value of who you are and where colts culture personality are really fostered by the structure of the academic system. So that you know there are sort of running joke in the book. How looney the professors art fun with that. But you know in graduate school. I we used to joke about it being like a reality show where we were all and they were the judges and we would laugh at their personality quirks but we were aware that we had to curry favour. Avoid displeasing so and so You know we were. You know. I mean it was almost a friend of mine who is in my writing. Baku read the book early. I mean my writing group who read the book early compared to court politics and that to me sounded really apt. She said this sounds like an arcane system. Where people are courting favour and Dispensing favor and. That's what i wanted to capture in that in the book. So it's it's less per se. I mean yes. The students behave badly but even the professors who are kind of running things even they also have insecurities and weaknesses have been amplified over the years in this of overall structure. So you know. I think like i when i on the ground in in the program. You know it can feel very alienating to have somebody who was your friend that you thought was really on your side suddenly turn to you and say you know and you got something to prove. Why are you you know it just suddenly kind of becoming aggressive around rival or something or just around milestones or having people. Yeah just having people Suspicious of each other and and the professors honestly some of them really thrived off of that they thrived off of the personality is all about you. Know they sort of thrived off people trying to get close to them and You know there's a moment in the in the book where i think it's a bethany lad is the professor in the book is kind of the the main symbol of all this in the mug..

I've seen my approach to the challenges and helping businesses adapt. And i would say i literally had the book. I had the outland of the book.

You assume it's going to be a huge problem and then you go to a place. You're never happen it happens. I don't envy nuts position. But i don't know i'm sure they'll have more cameras than i saw. They'll dissect apart they'll have beyond board no date and everything no look at it all and say okay. You're figuring out what we know. We can solve in the future so and forth. But they got away with it and find shortcut. It was definitely cool to watch Indefinitely brings us into the track limits discussions which we normally hear about in indycar an f. one and wrap up today. Parker is the f one race in back who to me. This is like talladega this race like the craziest stuff happens year after year after year. And you have good perspective on f. One so i want to. I've got a couple of questions. I don't even know if i could explain all the events that happened over the last four laps but needless to say you should just go watch the highlights and what was amazing about this restart they do. This restart essentially had like a green white checkered finish. They red flag the race and had a standing start for the final two laps. And the first thing i want to ask you about is lewis. Hamilton was in second place and they restart the race and he's coming up on sergio perez and just for lewis. Hamilton makes this unbelievably uncharacteristic error. Where he just he blows. The corner goes through goes from scoring twenty something points zero points huge championship implications lewis hamilton said after the race that there was a magic break switch that he accidentally hit left on. Apparently the magic breaks. It makes your brakes disappear. And you explain. Like i'm knowing you have some familiar with the f. one cockpit. I saw some photos floating around that. You actually retreated. There's a switch. It actually says magic breaks. What does that do. Is it on louis or is it on the team for like telling him. Hey don't forget to toggle that when you have this restart so first of all that was wild and second ball. Full one cars are highly procedural base right. It takes twenty engineers just to start the damn things. There's tremendous amount of procedures. We see the high end prototype sportscar. Stop over the mall this or things you get. The drivers get massive. Manuals have take you through all the procedures. You gotta memorize these things. Because they're so technologically advanced with that comes out to do some very cool things. Which in that type of racing but we deal with in stock car racing for the nascar fans out there log were trying to eliminate he in stock car. Racing heat is an enemy to performance in stock cars. Everything on a stock car is too small or not able to get cooled well enough or it's just not what you would use if you're trying to get the best performance out of something so we're trying to constantly evacuate heat from a race car in separate rare occasions at burnsville and a very cold day. We tried to get tires. Informa- one in douala times racing heat. The cars are very designed to position where technologically. They are almost perfect. And so you're trying to find absolute perfect heat levels amongst everything that goes breaks. That goes tires. They talk about all the time having to get the tire in the perfect range. That's trying to find that exact heat profile that allows it scrape the best grip because that car can be designed to do anything with the brakes. What happened there the mercedes. They've done a lot of work when they had the data system which was the wheel movement. That allow you to change the toe on the retires to put more heat there. We also did a deal. The magic brake lever which was allowing the brakes to go basically brighter stand. You cut off the a lot of times like we have in stock cars which is a lever that we use them or sometimes where they were going off and trying to make a date late pass. We have a lever that we push down and cut the brakes rear and just had the front so you can break. Wait are and then deal with it on the Sort of get away with it. They were using it to pump heat into the brakes to get that into the operating temperature. They want as well as we tires. Because of keeping the brakes transfers wheels which attacks so he left apparently he turned it off and then hit it by accident on up shifts. That fun so what i assume they will do is they will move that button or they will go to a new procedure or something. And that's not how you fix these things and former one i. It's weird because i saw that restart happening. I just thought. I like louis is gonna. I don't know what i just said my mind. I'm like i think he's gonna just end up driving off the track your one. I don't know why i just felt. Like the whole thing is monitoring what he said before the long season all that. Now i'm telling you think off and he's like the future but You know obviously had locked. It wasn't him it was what mechanically was in the car. But that's a very for one. It's so technology are so many things like that you have. That's why you see those big words. So procedural base because there's so many elements everything they'd be like the hamilton sort of jinxed himself in a way by saying oh it's a long season i'm not gonna do anything crazy and then something happened was just horrible but it was also somewhat fitting that his chief championship rival max. Verstappen was going to win that race and it was his tire failure with three to go. That set up this red flag. Green white checkered finish and again. Wanna get your take on this. I you can argue that. There was a safety element. Here because red bull verstappen's team and the team of the winner. Sergio perez was saying. Hey we got to stop this thing. We got change. Tires is the second tire failure. We've had across the field. You know we gotta figure this out and f one said or the steward said yeah. Okay we're gonna do that but to me. Parker felt a lot like nascar. Two thousand one. The two thousand and four pre nascar overtime pre green white checkered finishes. They would stop a race if the caution came out. With a certain number elapsed ago and red flag it so that they can have a green flag. Finish that's one did in baku. So did that surprise you. That f one would do that. I mean it stopped me because it seems antithetical to what i normally think of the whole purity of competition with f. juan and even indycar versus nascar's focus on entertainment. I will say ten years ago would have shocked..

You're not going to so he was able to go out there. I wouldn't say easy because there's nothing easy about dryness dot com road course Find a way to win and it was cool. The odds going in this weekend. I had to do that either. It was like eight to one dollars knowing. I abuse all that and i said that's the pick like if i had it would have been on friday thursday november. We did that. I was like i would pick collars chernoff worked out. 'cause i've forgotten it. I mean you're right. He probably should have one code or would have won code if the rain doesn't come right. Chase elliott probably has two pit and larssen probably was the fastest so that that brings me to my next question. Parker which is. And i've already had a person who will go named email me and like. Hey what are the hendrick teams doing like. What are they doing their cars. That doesn't leap to mind immediately. I can understand people think like. Hey why are they still good. On road courses this year larsen could've won daytona beach road course as well but i think it's they have great drivers but is there anything that they're doing that you see that potentially would make the hendrick cars better or is it just a matter of kyle larson generational talent chase elliott might be generational talent for road course racing in nascar images. They've got through the best drivers right now. I don't want to discredit howard chases talent or what they bring to the program. The obvious you know for my opinion being racer you know. If i was sitting in that garage right now another team i would be saying once in those cars right like all right. What are they figure now. Because obviously i chased. And i think collar. Amazing drivers bowman byron. There are great but in the cup series. you know. Every driver from thirtieth thirtieth place driver on a given week at her thirty third to first. They're all you know if you put them in the same car. Same time at the same. If you could directly do all that they all gonna run with an intense right. I think that on the speed side of things like australia. Speed lab that you know we see things in the cup series trends where a team or a group is doing. Really well to me. That lends a little bit on the equipment side of saint. Okay they figure something out and they obviously you know are taking full advantage of it What that is. I don't know. I can tell you if i I did i. I'd probably have a hundred butter sports On my shirt year. So i think the you know sometimes see stuff like this that a lot of times leads it to being you know. Maybe they sounded era advantage. Obviously chevy's really hard as we know to be more competitive from where they were two three years ago and those sorts of things aligned with the development for us you know sort of semi maybe some of the things that they got right at the end when we can do open development they figured out that carried forward now and others quite develop as quickly anymore. So i think those sorts of things have probably somewhere in there may be some mix of all of it have come together to give them the speed that they have and you put it. They had some the best drivers by far. Wants a champion right now. One is don't most you know in my mind when he was going ear. This was To me it was fulfilling the prophecy for collar. Ended up a hendrick motorsports. That was sort of the ever since he first cup car. I thought well he'll end up in sports and he'll be amazing what he does and sure enough. He is but i think they're taking full advantage of that. And you got it because you could turn out in two months. And suddenly gibbs is hitting on it as we see in the past restored figures out there woes suddenly hendrix. The third. best right. So you've got to take advantage the times when you have an advantage. they have. Yeah and certainly. This is a cyclical type endeavor. We've seen before nascar. And that's been the narrative i asked cole customer about it last week and mark tricks junior and they both said stewart haas racing joe gibbs racing. They're working tails off trying to catch up with hendrick. But you mentioned a parker that the parts freeze the lack of wind tunnel time development practicing qualifying. Is this season that theoretically if you have an edge a team is going to be tougher for the other teams to catch hendrick. I guess theoretically yes. I think the thing is. It's sort of a grain from a year or two now right. That's when we started this album freeze and then what you're allowed to do. You're allowed to. Then you weren't allowed to go to the whig shuttled so on and so forth so it compiles a little bit as well because then if you do have that little bit of gap. That's something you've figured out. And you're making incremental gains right now that maybe aren't as large as we couldn't afford because you can only do so much development or it's just small things small tweaks amongst the stuff you're have refinements I think it yeah. It sort of gives you that level up that compounds throughout the time that you're gonna do that and keep that had been so. I think the other major organizations though you're dough give scoot Whenever we get these teams that sort of become dominant. We like to say like. Wow they ever get caught like figure it out. And i'm like i don't know maybe the x. Amount of engineers tens of millions of dollars at should ostracized or the tens of millions of dollars. Excellent engineers at joe gibbs by going to figure it out so i just think that's why the competition right we do this because we compete and just because one team has right now doesn't mean it's gonna last forever and i know slow presenting but even within that i find it hard to believe that we turn around here in four months and be like no one ever called no one ever figured out that'd be a shot like you said millions of dollars lying around stewart haas and joe gibbs racing and the brain with their one goal and those other cards dozens of engineering bachelor degrees. Probably if you doctorates mixed in there. I mean yeah. It's you're right. It's sort of a recipe. For of course they're going to get better at some point want to get your reaction A couple of things. That callers said post race. I found interesting. I is and i talked about this. When burton on a couple of weeks ago after dover just about the amount of homework and studying the drivers have to do now in terms of smtp. Data and larson talked a lot about that but he also talked about taking what i learned in doing those studying and talking to a name from the past. That struck me scott speed. Larson went out of his way to name. Scott speed said. He gave him a lot of good advice. Scott speed of course former formula one driver former nascar driver from rallycross drivers done a lot of things and larson said that i put work into this week. looking a lot of sim and things like that. And your josh wise. I work out. Do not just worked out. But i do a lot of stuff with him. And he's hired on scott speed to kind of work side by side with him. And you'll scott's one of the best american road racers we've ever seen so getting to pick his brain lot in areas where i've struggled past and scott really helped me this week mindset in thought. You needed outbreak people. Which was you opposite. So what what. You really need to talk to him. i felt like i got a lot better outbreak. People gyasi will pass people released lee. So i think having him was a huge benefit to mean as well as you know. Ross chastain radic and bowman who ran pretty good today yes. I think we have a really cool thing going throughout the week in it. It definitely helps prepare all of us drivers who worked out with him in scott josh scott to the good for the weekends so i just wanna get your take on that parker. Like i don't know how well you know scott speed. If you're in kyle larson shoes and you have that opportunity to take that data and then talk to somebody..

Do not let them by co lead you to ruin you risk banishment. And was for the any who says hand putting us turn away now. And i will remember. This is greeting party. None of the resolve melted from the faces of the jabari. The cia in baku said gently even as his body was flexed for battle. It brings us no pleasure to be here. None of us to lay a hand upon.

Nagorno-Karabakh truce frays amid reports of new shelling

"Alliance to mano, and we're joined by Professor Brenda Shaffer of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. I begin with the news. This is Reuters. Within these last hours, Armenia and Azerbaijan accused each other on Sunday within last hours. Violating a new humanitarian ceasefire and fighting over the mountain enclave of Nagorno car. Bach after was agreed The truce agreed on Saturday came into force at midnight after a week old Russian brokered ceasefire failed to halt the worst fighting at 10. 10 GMT, The Azeri Defense Ministry said the aft Agdam region adjacent to growing a car back was under Armenian shelling. It said overnight army and military units open fire from large caliber weapons along the border, which Armenia denied. Armenia said the Azeri army had fired twice during the night and used artillery and accused Baku. Rejecting its request to withdraw the wounded soldiers from the battlefield. Mr Ambassador, I come to you with first the poor news of the breakdown in the cease fire. And then the positive news from Washington that the foreign minister of Armenia will meet with your foreign minister of Azerbaijan, and Mike Pompeo, the secretary of state on Friday. Does that look to be a moment when a more lasting ceasefire could take hold since the Russians failed? Can Washington succeed? Good evening to you? Good evening, John. Always good talking to you. And once again thank you for keeping this, Uh public and listeners updated on the development of the region. Unfortunately, issue actually pointed out the ceasefire has broken down again. That's the second time that the minions violate the cease fire. We don't fully understand why they Sign this file. Just violated very shortly afterwards. What elevation is that once they don't really want to seize fire? They didn't don't wantto engage in the Meaningful conversation on substantive talks. All they want is to prolong the occupation of the virgin lands on DH by why didn't cease fire created conditions with third parties to participate to direct, uh, posters, other parties, including courses of action in this case in tow, direct confrontation into direct conflict. That's that's a danger. Think. So this continues to because ceasefire is a good thing off course nobody wants people to die. Nobody wants to shooting to continue. But at the same time. The most important thing, of course, is no justice filed by the medical conversation and substantive talks based on international war, and that's what I hope is that meetings in Washington will produce something like that, of course. Every effort for peace is appreciated. Andi if the United States as a culture of the men's group wants to take a proactive approach to that, that's a very positive development. We don't know exactly what what exactly you expect from the conversation. But Um, a little over to the visit to Washington. Mr Ambassador. I believe in these last days, I've seen video of more missile attacks against ganja is that is that correct? These are in addition to the ones we talked about last week. It's holding. It's just horrible. Uh, easy losing on the battlefield. I mean, is exactly what every dictatorship which is militant and the hunter is doing when they was in the better. They attacked someone else's civilians so Friday, just hours off deciding the ceasefire agreement Ah, I mean, you're fired. Ballistic scarred me so into the sedation neighborhood in gadget, this tongue everything. Now they're trying to say this is occasions versus Muslims they hit in, added 500 M from the major. Go to the kitchen, Cassio and 300 M from the major mosque. This is a type of behavior over uncivilized. Nation. I mean, it's like Saddam Hussein. Firing things into Israel works for them works at the same doing that towards others, by the way. Saddam Hussein began firing missiles into civilian Attias of is a also once you began losing in his occupation, illegal occupation off of it. Washing others of the same thing. This is this was a horrible poker, Uh, scores of people died, including a good 10 years old. A 10 month old baby. Can you imagine that toilet picture over father holding it? 10 months old. Body off his daughter. There's a girl who was killed whose birthday was on our additional day, which is the way it is October, so Visit when we go into a cease fire when we're going to come into a negotiation, I want people to understand. If you look at the emotions on the outside when we go Talk to people who do this kind of thing's Ah, Professor. There is a video I have seen

Fighting Breaks Out In Disputed Territory Of Nagorno-Karabakh

"Nagorno-karabakh is a disputed territory that's internationally recognized as part of. Azerbaijan. But it's populated and governed by ethnic Armenians between one thousand, nine, hundred, Eighty, eight, nine, thousand, nine, hundred, four as a by John and Armenia afford a war over the clave which killed thirty thousand people. Fighting. Between the two sides has now resumed and there's concern the conflict could widen Turkey which backs Azerbaijan has been accused of stoking tensions. We'll joining me is a Dorien Jones our correspondent in Istanbul. Doyenne. What's the extent of Turkish involvement in this latest fighting or Turkey is by John's closest ally and they have very close military links have something region of ten military exercises every year volving air force soldiers, special forces, and there are deep deep military ties between the countries and also turkeys one of the major arms suppliers for as John in particularly drones which have been used extensively in the fighting but it's also allegations from Armenia that Turkish fighter jets have shot down one of Armenian planes. That has been denied by Ankara, and also that he's also been sending Syrian fighters to backup ZAERI forces in the conflict again, acclaimed nine by. they've to be growing. Independent evidence to support those claims. Now why has the fighting flared at this particular time? Well, this is being this conflict is being simmering for decades. Now, it's much colder a frozen conflict and a has been frustration by Azerbaijan in the lead up to this latest outbreak in fighting the base of the international community had ignored efforts to resolve this, and it's not only this in Clave nagorno-karabakh that is. Occupied according to Baku by on menial separatists but also a large swathe of by Jan is under Armenian occupation since fighting the nineteen ninety s and there's well over a million. Refugees from that Conflict Bucco has been saying that there has been no attempts really to end this situation and the suggesting that the conflict was pretty much inevitable and I think that this fighting particularly given the fact that other by John Reid does appear to be on the offensive is a frustration that basically the international community hadn't resolve festering problem.

"Offers an intense perspective on the issues and feelings most prescient in the poet's mind to that end Ellie Ellie Sada's latest collection towards the end challenges a range of concerns troubling our contemporary world today. So Ellie welcome back to three. Ci Thank you. Thanks for having me Nev- it. The title here. Seems a little ominous towards the end leading to the end of the world as we know it but the world as we know it I you know I think as I was. Finalizing the book Earlier in the year. And I'm thinking well. This is a bit of a melodramatic title. And then I turn on the news now. Actually I just step out at you know to the back yard and I can't breathe because of the ember storm you know. This is interesting learning new language. Courtesy of the Times. We live in so there. Is You know parts of Australia. Burning soon have another of the horse. Men of of the apocalypse disease being unleashed in Wuhan China. At exact same time we had you know trump trying desperately to start the Third World War by by killing that Iranian General I thought well the four horsemen are here so my title was in to a to an in some ways necessarily see the physical demise here. It's it's more for the values and concerns that we hold dear if I may I'll just read the first poem and we can discuss it in a little more detail. It's called the singer. This is how I croon my son singing Humpty dumpty a melody. He screams out in the absence of my song. I wasn't nearly as loud toddler. My voice vanished from the void of my father's car father's es sorry. I remember him having vaguely while driving wrapped up in his own world in mind. My son's medley moves onto Jack and Jill recalling the tune. I whistled yesterday. Did it ever exist? Did I ever have a voice? Even as an infant to seek to mit a whimper. Our member dad crying out the lyrics of an old Persian. Dirge wobbling from the speaker's not long after moving to Australia homesickness. Haunting his larynx like ghost howling in a haunted house. So much for parenting the loss of the music I never could muster. I'm here for my son's nursery rhymes to enact the presence unsung words now. My interpretation and this is the thing about poetry. It's open to all sorts of possibilities. The music the music of the child the music of the father and the music of your father and your music seems to get lost in there somewhere and your voice. Because there's your father recollecting purge at the music is a wider connect with these past life your son Humpty Dumpty Jack and Jill vs the medleys all Utah of the future. So but this is my interpretation. But I'm just wondering if that coincides with your intention but also then the question Your Voice. Your music Great I just want to say that you read it very well and I think I would like you to do all my readings from here on if that's okay look into. I guess I wouldn't call it an ironing. It's too weak word but I guess the contradiction is that it's actually written in my voice. The whole poem is actually in my voice. It's a little bit like Plato in the Republic. Saying all this nasty things about art but the Republicans written as a play with characters. So you know there's that sort of again i. I guess this is paradox. I guess is the word so so here is a Paul supporters. You know saying I don't have a voice but it's actually nothing but the poet's voice I think that that's sort of the lost there and it's something that identify in the rest of the collection is not so much for voice of personal you know emotional autobiographical identity. But one of something deeper something more more meaningful which are identified to be the voice of universal human subjectivity. Now that's one of the oldest things that poets tried to do scene at a time of the great epic poets. They want. I wanted to speak on behalf of humanity. Now this is something. A modern poetry mob has certainly rejected strongly beginning with romanticism. Which says look you know. It's just you the lyric I expressing your feelings. All the way to sort of like postmodernism and which says the lyric is bad but any mention of we is also not okay. Only he only express the immediacy of language. And that's all you ever do and I kind of feel like well. I don't I mean I I mean that's a tall these traditions but the quest that I guess I felt as I was putting the poems in this book together on a road some additional poems and arranged upon where particular wide at Kinda tells of sort of a story and is not so much about finding my personal voice. You know how do I how do I express myself? But it's about well. What is the voice? That's is needed for our times. And I think that's the kind of the big universal question which is perhaps even a political question. Wouldn't you raise some very mighty topics vertical philosophical social There's one called saga the more obscure and undesirable the more palatable. Ice Scowl still bothers me. And she's been dead for at least a decade. Her husband comically defendant. A downtrodden man wants a Communist. How much more fascinating radical with? My grandparents emigres escaping style and coming to Iran to found a trotskyite cell instead of Banal Matriarch and dull ethics patriarch immersed in gossip and religion. As a child. I hated any a few things more than being left alone with him. He once believed in the dictatorship of the proletariat when he died. I couldn't some in a single tear from my added on to his grandson. He'd being so simple meaningless as for Anna perhaps not really possible that she migrated as a teenage girl from Baku to Iran for more exceptional reason than giving birth to a son. Who'd made a woman who didn't give birth to me? Jeans are poor substitute for the fable of revolutions that universal family. Thank you but this notion of needing a viable needing a sag that's momentous and yet the irony or the opposite is the sort of mundane Mundane missive life Yeah totally I mean. I think you know this is my third book of poems. I kind of exhausted. That's sort of like Again reflection on the personal and familial and the mundane I know. That's what a lot of poets do and they do. Well you know since I mean who's to say that William Williams was wrong to talk about her red wheelbarrow on K. Good not yourself that and I've done that but I kind of feel like especially the Times though was writing this collection of putting it together and I kind of begins around the time that I live into by and this is two thousand and eight and I see the global financial crisis at that really impacts me and I feel like perhaps there is a tradition of poetry that is much more easily impacted by what's happening in the world by the economic social and political. Then there are other traditions. You know the the great sort of I mean this is this is again. It is also paradoxical thing we think about romanticism. We think well. It's the poetry of you know some some English Dandy wandering around and looking at daffodils. Okay it's that but it is also the poetry of the same Dandy as a young person going to be a part of the French Revolution. So so you know that sort of again. I feel like there is a a traditional poetry. That is more public. That is more We can talk about its political. Buddy and what what sense of the word is as as people listening to this and listening to your excellent readings of my poems that. I'm not a preachy person. Nevertheless these are poems that express a desire for universality of the human experience. I mean you've got some lovely lines at times. I mean the economy's manifest destiny and that juxtapose -sition manifest destiny was part of the American agenda expansion prearranged by God over an indefinite area and yet now applying that to the economy as that he's now want is determining allies those sorts of images and juxtapose that you've created. I forget which one that was in their alphabet city Alphabet yeah so that. That's sort of those the images that you're able to provide to make us think more profoundly more deeply. Yeah thanks I I mean I mean you know it's Yeah it's a kind of again referenced. Historical things look as you said manifest destiny but that that particular Isabelle a cafe. They used to being in North called alphabet city. And and and you know I mean I. I was away from Australia for some time. Then I came back and didn't move back to Northcote. Couldn't afford it but but eventually when I went back and also well I go to this cafe where I used to hang out and it's just not there anymore and and I will on why you know what what is happening here. Look really and I thought well. It's there is to concreteness of the city. Being being pulverized due to the forces of capital and nobody I mean. It's it's an absurd thing to say what I don't want this old. You know cafe to be knocked down and replaced by auto residential flats built with you know to to enhance the value of capital for investors. Who Am I to say no to that? But I mean that's a very symbolic and visible way in which our lives are being impacted by this extraordinary juggernaut of capital to use a Marxist term the jagged of capital in many ways destroys the spirit of a place. I mean one of the things I've noticed in my son is that when I first moved in the dwellings were sort of seventies style and such like and now they being pulled down and two story brick mausoleums going from fence. Lan Events Line What is the old quarter Acre block and the veggie patch in the back? But it's it's a Y Y of how life is represented we see as leading allies and it's being destroyed in many

How Coronavirus is affecting MWC 2020

"GSA UPDATE ON CORONA virus. That is the subject line of an email that was sent out to registered attendees for Mobile World Congress in Barcelona which is happening in just a few weeks. Hello everybody and welcome to the pocket now. Weekly podcast hosted by yours truly judge of Gara. What's going on everybody all right? So we're GONNA get a little bit more abundant this particular episode because yes we have to talk about the corona virus which has literally affected so many portions of the world and various various different sectors including tech. Now I'm sure that most of you are aware of the different stories that have come out of Baku Rona virus in general but there were some very interesting stories stories that happened within the last week or so in regards to the different people who are going to be exhibiting at Mobile Congress. Obviously you're listening to the pocket. Weekly podcast so you are probably aware of what NWC is it is literally one of the most important shows throughout every single year where mobile technology is given the centerstage pretty much every company that has a hand in the creation of smartphones tablets wearables infrastructure five G. tend to go to Mobile World Congress and many of their big announcements happened in Barcelona. People like myself in high Rivera and many of the people that you know in the tech world go to the show every every single year and it is generally a very good time. Barcelona is a wonderful city With a lot of character and actually mobile world congress as far as the venue is concerned. The fear of our CELONA is one of the coolest venues when it comes to these shows that we go to every year but this year. It's going to be incredibly difference because with the News Corona virus spreading in China and in certain parts around the world. A lot of people have had to make the executive decisions to either attend or opt out of of 'em. WC without naming names. I know a few people who actually opted out of going. And it's going to be a bummer. Not Seeing them in Barcelona as it is basically a tradition for all all of us tech friends to get together at this show and I know a couple of other publications that have actually been giving their people some early notice that if they don't want to go to Barcelona they can actually say so. And of course this all started when the corona virus first sprouted in the WHO Bay province of China particularly the epicenter. Being a place is called Wuhan that is part of mainland China but because of the level of travel that we have in today's society and today's High-tech Society. Let's say there are people both traveling from so many places around the world that not only would people from that province moved to many other places via air travel and whatnot. They're also many visitors. Who might my end up going to? Who Bay province and they are also part of this huge quarantine or huge tracking of people who might be affected by this corona virus us? And as you're going to hear later from the email that I mentioned at the beginning of this episode Whether or not you have actually stepped foot near or in Wuhan Matters. But let's just talk for a little bit about the impact that the GM A has on the mobile industry. Mobile Congress is like I said one of the biggest shows of of the year it is one of what we call the Big Three Ceus. 'EM WC and EPA in Berlin. You're all aware of CAS which just happened about a month ago. And then Eva In Berlin happens usually every September near the end of the year when some final announcements are happening but at the beginning of the year basically in the first quarter. This is when you set the precedent precedent for the rest of the calendar year at 'EM WC by announcing some really big devices in Barcelona back in the day Samsung used to use. WC The as the jump off point for their galaxy S. line they used to go to 'em WC with the new devices but overtime Samsung decided to hold their own shows. Handy events Of course now we call those unpacked. And those are the shows that Samsung uses in order to announce the new devices but pretty much every other company attends Hans Nwc along with thousands upon thousands of other exhibitors to show off their latest updates to just highlight some of the big names. You have everyone from Xiaomi. A two Vivo and honor to Qualcomm Lenovo Motorola sick imagine how everybody felt when. LG One of the most recognizable names and mobile tag decided to pull out and of M W C completely. There's a certain hall in the fear of the venue for Mobile World Congress where all of the phone manufacturers tend to sort of clump together. And it's there that you can walk from qualcomm and just maybe take a two minute stroll over to Samsung and from Samsung you can take a quick stroll over to lg but now that huge huge portion of that hall LG tends to take. It's just going to be empty. It remains to be seen. What would happen with these particular companies booths and spaces basis now that they're not actually going to be there? But of course there are varying degrees to which companies are actually taking themselves out of the show Z.. T. E. announced that they wouldn't be at the show show but what that actually meant was they. Were not going to do a press conference but they would still have a booth and have representation on the show. Floor Ericson would then follow suit as the next company to to leave Mobile World Congress over concerns of the corona virus. Ericsson a name that you might remember from these Sony Ericsson days of those particular. Let's say dump phones as it was before the smartphone. smartphone era is still a major player in telecommunications and probably the biggest blow to GSI may so far when it comes to 'em WC. Andy's exhibitors was invidia video announcing that they would no longer be attending the show. This one's a big one because according to the verge in video was going to host ten sessions and actually have a place called the a innovation center now I have seen Invidia at a number of different shows and they always talk about the power of their cards and processors especially in terms of ai and and videos AI is starting to pop in so many different places even beyond computing and mobile They actually started talking about autonomous driving and getting into the five G. Game but the market detail here is that nvidia was also a major sponsor of the conference in general and they have partnered with the conference to have a bunch of different sessions every single year. But it's probably the biggest headline mainly because video was one of the major sponsors of 'em. WC Twenty twenty on top of everything that they were supposed to be hosting the fact that they okay and three other companies so far at the recording of this episode have pulled out of mobile world. Congress means that all of the topics they have been part of are no longer going to be in the discussion. There's going to be less. Ai There because of invidia less mobile devices because of LG Z.. T. Not having a major presence anymore and of course on the telecommunication side when it comes to Business Ericsson not being their means that they are out of the conversation during the show as well but that doesn't stop the fact that we you're still going to 'EM WC and WC is still going to happen after all there are still so many companies that will indeed be there and they will feel the conversations even if there's going to be a little bit less of a crowded space ticket for what you will but aside from Z.. T. E.. A lot of the major Chinese companies are still planning on attending and they are going to have have not only press conferences but major major updates to many of their products during the Barcelona show.

The Legend of Pokou

"Are stories today highlights leader whose life was surrounded by legend magic. She overcame significant. Hardship stood up to an army and eventually established a new homeland. Let's let's talk about Queen. Pokou Poku was born around seventeen hundred likely in what's now Ghana to a noble family of the Ashanti People. They were a centuries old African tribe with roots dating back as far as the year thirteen hundred poku was the niece of. Oh say two known as has the greatest Ashanti King because the Ashanti monarchy was matrilineal Poku was included in the line of succession during his rule. Oh say to united in many smaller kingdoms into the larger Ashanti Empire when in seventeen eighteen he was ambushed and killed Howard passed onto poku brother their day. Calm during day Khan's rule who selected a husband an attempt to produce an heir. It didn't get pregnant. Who was quite brave? Leave one day when day Khan and the army were away from the Ashanti. Capital enemy troops ambushed the town and killed all the royal princesses except Recoup Kuku arranged for others to escape but decided to stay behind and defend the town however she cut the enemy. Warriors took her hostage. d-conn soon returned from war furious to discover the besieged capital. He appointed a warrior named Tano to lead Loku's rescue party. They successfully successfully defeated the enemy group and got poku back Tano and Poku then got married. The new couple had a baby boy together. The heir to the Ashanti anti thrown Dakin fell ill when Poku son was still only a baby so we attempted to appoint an older air but day. Cons choice was murdered by his rival. Who who hoped to seize the throne himself after killing the chosen heir? The rival tried to gain favor with Poku to secure his place on the throne but she refused to endorse him. He was determined to seize power regardless so poku left the shontae capital altogether to establish her own kingdom. She invited anyone anyone in the Ashanti Empire to come with her and many of the smaller kingdoms previously united by her uncle Osa to to decided to follow her to a new land. The story of Baku's peril filled adventure to a new land has been passed down in legend. For centuries in many ways echoes the story of Moses and the Hebrews escaped from Egypt and Pokou and her followers fled the capital city with the soldiers of the guy who wanted to be king on their trail.

Euro 2020 draw: England in group with Croatia while Wales meet Italy

"Thank you very much God. Meanwhile in Romania the JOE is made for the Euro Two thousand nine hundred finals next summer here it is on its glory in group. Eight Italy Wales and Switzerland or Jones again in Group B Denmark Finland Belgium and Russia in Group C. It's the Dutch Ukraine Austria and then one of the four teams will qualify via the playoffs in Group Day England Croatia and the Czech Republic will also be joined by a team entering via the playoffs in group e Spain Sweden Poland then another playoff win a group F. That's the big one is Jimmy France Portugal and and then another playoff win at for a lot more on the jaw gap. It might take some people a while to fully wrap their heads around euro. Twenty twenty of course This tournament unlike any other at the anniversary tournament. It's not going to be hosted at one place. It's spread all over Europe from From Glasgow and London in the West all the way to Baku Ho. That's all the way to the to the east so these groups that were drawn. There's different dynamics. The top seeds get a whole bunch of games at home which of course is also is also going to impact things. I think tremendously so if you're the likes of of Spain if you're the likes of Italy Holland and of course England Then it'd be pretty happy. Tell you. WHO's not going to be happy? Germany Portugal and France the last two World Cup winners with of of course the defending euro champions Portugal sandwiched in between. They're all in the same group we don't know who the fourth one is. Because that's another one of the vagaries of of this draw that there's still issues to be settled via the playoffs but it presents a really interesting dynamic. Now remember a this is a two thousand fourteen year old like the last one which means that some third-placed teams will advance Portugal. Of course advances the third place team last time around they. He did it without winning a game and of course they went on to be crowned European champion so doesn't necessarily mean one of these big three Portugal. Germany and France are going out early But it does mean that you have to be careful whoever whoever that that fourth-placed or that the fourth seed in that group is going to be you know that teams are GonNa go all out against them because you simply cannot even contemplate dropping points if you want to advance as third seed so all to play for and it starts this summer and tell you what some people don't like all the traveling around but it's going to be different. It's going to be good

How to access your pay before pay day? New apps making this easier for everyday workers...

"Me now. In our Bloomberg ninety nine, one studio here in Washington DC. Bloomberg news economics reporter. Show, Chandra who's got a story about this on the Bloomberg terminal show the. The blogger they're almost makes this sound like a payday loan that you get from your boss but it's. Not quite, that is. It no it's not that at all in fact this is one way around payday loans and you see this. In the gaining popularity that at such as the one from instant financial. And from daily pay those are becoming popular hourly workers as you said and yes you earn your money and then you have access to it which, has been. A problem especially for this segment of. The labor market and part of. It is because wages just. Haven't been rising fast Enough, according to analysts we spoke to so here's a case of technology really stepping in to help workers. Albeit in a limited way where the labor market has disappointed any right in your, story that part of the, objective here? Is, to help employers reduced churn. Among employees, it's very high and the restaurant and, fast food industries is is are these apps working are they reducing churn for the companies using them yes one assistant. Manager to Wendy's that we spoke with said it's. Really helping, deals charm and he seemed that right from the time he, joined which was late February, and now he's you know he said from, that time on the company started to roll the instant financial app They they've not only retain all the. Workers they had, they've. Actually added two more and about twenty four of, thirty workers already had this up so everybody there was, quite happy with. It and you know it's not just a good thing for employers, remember this is helping employees to be able to tide over that gap between paychecks and. That is what gets to why these apps may increase in use sorta gets. To the point of persistent issue that you alluded to earlier when, it comes to the? Plight of low income workers in this country I? Mean. They are still dealing with the struggle even on a, day when we had four, point one percent quarterly economic growth they still have to, make ends meet day. Exactly and you, know so, so one takeaway from today's numbers was that yes the economy's ring really fast did Very well in the second quarter but not everybody's benefiting from it in. Fact there was a recent recently released Federal Reserve survey and that had, shocking number in there it said too in five American. Adults lack enough savings to cover even a four hundred dollar emergency expense so you can. Just imagine how important it is for workers. To at least, the able to access through some of these. Financial apps the money that they have already earned by working hard and just to give you a sense of how these apps worked as one way you can get fifty percent of your what you've earned the prior day and it's for free so you just text on your phone and you can. Get the, money onto your debit card that's another one where you pay a Baku depending on whether, you want the money right, away the next day and you can get. All. Of the money, that. You've earned so they're these different models if you, will that are starting to. Come Up in the market and they're all targeting at not penalizing workers. Just to be able to get the money, that they have actually earned Show just in our last minute or, so here how do the apps make money on all this the apps make money by charging companies in the one case in instant financial but, they wouldn't disclose to. Us what they charge the employers. To be able to offer these apps to the to their, workers and another case which is daily pay the company that's offering this app daily pay is charging the workers themselves to use the app and they have a very interesting Way to attract more millennials millennials actually you can, text and emoji you can choose If you could pick. A house if you want to you know get some money towards your house red you can pick a money bag or if you. Just happy Texan emoji for a smiley and you get twenty bucks, with each emoji so what they're trying to do, here is get, more people involved whether it's younger workers or just regular. Hourly workers, make it simple get. The money that you have earned emojis to it I mean that's a slam dunk but in? Our our, last couple seconds here is this a risk for the payday loan industry I mean what did you. Say of, Bucker to, these these apps charge for for, workers to, access their money I mean that's a that's, that's peanuts compared to. The you know double digit percentages that payday lenders, charging, interest, not just payday lenders remember credit card expense Also add up if you can't pay bills at the end of the. Month so yes there is a risk provided these apps become widespread and by all accounts a my reporting. Showed that these are gaining rapidly, of course there still, mostly in, the healthcare sector in restaurants those kind. Of industries but there could be a day when this becomes a widespread phenomenon through the economy and then payday lenders better watch out. All right show Chandra thanks again for telling us more about this, really appreciate it that's Bloomberg news economics reporter show, Chandra now let's, get the latest world and national headlines with Bloomberg's Nancy. Lyons thanks,.
