Say Yes To Your Kids
"Message is pretty simple. Say yes now. This is not say yes to address the wedding show. This is say yes to your kids. This is yes to the moment that they want to play trains downstairs. This is yes to when your daughter comes up to you in plays wants to play barbies. This is say yes going outside. If you're in the winter playing in the snow this is saying yes to something in your life that you've been saying no to in our conversation. We talked about it a lot. That the ability of dad's just to get lost in the day to day stuff that we do and not be with the day to day stuff that we do is so so profound in core. That message is that we need to learn to say yes more because let me tell you. There are so many moments in your day. Because i have. I'm right there with you. This advice is a reminder for myself as well there are so many moments where my littlest one comes in and she wants ten minutes of my time and do. I just want to do something. I just wanna get an email out the door. And i hear you because during virtual learning if your kids are still at home when you're trying to get work done if you've got a fulltime job i get it. It is not easy. Let me tell you as my kids went back an hour into it on my on tuesday. When the first day it went back. I was already missing him for the idea. That even had that thought. I'm like are you drunk. It was absolutely chaos for the last two months of virtual learning but then my phone damn apple created this memory video of all the different things that they had done during my time with them this past two months and it was absolutely amazing. I remembered all times going sledding. All the time having fun outside all the things we built in the snow. And i was reminded that i did say yes quite a bit at times. Even in the midst of chaos even in the midst of just trying to get some work done and getting ill debt that. I can't do math mountains for my first grader. All of that it was hard. It was difficult and it wasn't easy but learning to say yes is a simple thing and it sounds. It's two words. Say yes but it can be such a shift in your mentality. That i need to leave what i'm doing to go do something else. I want to back this up with a story going all the way back to this past summer and twenty twenty that. There's many moments where i just wanted do work and my wife was home during the summer and i have easily just closed the door. Lock myself in and pretended like our head and eight to five job. But i didn't. There was many times where. I would recruit half the neighborhood to go on a bike ride. And we'll probably have like kids out with me sometimes and people give me a weird looks and i'm like don't worry they're not all mine but let me tell you what happens when i said yes in those moments when i said yes to those moments i had some of my best ideas for this podcast when i'm out engaging with my kids. I've had the best ideas for something next. I'd had the best ideas for new podcasts ideas on the other side of saying us so i want to tell you that on the other side of saying yes is potentially something that can change your life now. That sounds crazy because your mind probably saying casters. Just wild emotions. There's probably a fighting. Why would i want to say yes to that. Because when you enter that chaos and you learn to be calm within the chaos you create this idea that love is surrounding yourself because you're like man breaking super chaos right now but man. My kids love me. I love them. What a great moment in those moments where you can receive the love. The chaos all at once and find humor in sometimes. I remember going for those bike rides and just being like fuck. I'm one lottery amount riding bikes with my kids. It's summer it's just feels like a million bucks. And i mean now looking back and it's winter i'm like damn those days were the good ones but say yes because on the other side of that yes could be. The one thing that is ongoing to unlock repeatedly over time not made it'd be the first time maybe the second time but if you repeat this i am positive that you re engage with your kids on a moment by moment basis ten minutes at a time you can really make a dent in their behavior. You can really make a dent in their loved inc. All of that can be changed on the other side of. Yes so guys say yes when your kids come up to you. I you to do it for one week to give them. Don't tell me during do it. Because they'll probably abuse it but say yes. Every time they come in adult talent. Like i said. Don't tell them you're gonna say yes every time you can try to pause or try to come up with an excuse. Why not but every time. It's possible try to challenge yourself every time the next seven days after hearing this podcast whenever you hear sally yes to your kids when they want you to do something and notice how you feel differently after engaging ten minutes notice after seven days how much more gratitude you have for being a father noticed so much more gratitude you have for life notice. How much more gratitude you have for your wife because you and her both created this abundant ball of anger and love and joy all at the same time all of that can happen on the other side of saying yes
Violence erupts during Paris protest against Macron's security law
"For the last five years, The French police have been overworked and under stress. There were the terrorist attacks in 2015 and in 2018, protesters wearing yellow vests took to the streets to denounce income inequality. In between have been endless strikes and demonstrations that often end in violent clashes with young anarchists. Police have been injured and targeted. In 2016, a police couple was killed in front of their child by a terrorist who broke into their home. So President Emmanuel Macron tried to push through a bill to criminalize the publication of certain images of on duty officers. Matches that Brodsky, a law enforcement researcher, explains. That's being a demand for quite a while from rank and file and police unions because of fears regarding their privacy and regarding possible physical threats or even attacks. Article. 24, as the legislation was known, was part of a larger security bill at first human rights groups and the news media spoke out against it The You also warned France that journalist must be able to work freely. Slim been ashore is a civil rights lawyer. It's impossible to pretend that you're a strong democracy. If you press is afraid off filming and then showing the images images like a video that surfaced last week showing three police officers beating a black man Ah, professional music producer who never raised a hand against them, Um it's a national outcry over the video. Tens of thousands of people took to the streets across the country. 25 year old student Charl Du Bois protested in Paris Citrine Geneva. Come here, you'd be up to the official We're here to protect one of our cherished liberties, he says. Freedom of information. The right to stay informed is as important as free speech and the right to protest the face of article. 24 has been the hardline young Interior minister General Domina, who recently scoffed at the term police violence, saying any time police use force it's legitimate. But Macron called the videotaped beating a national disgrace. On Monday, he ordered his interior minister to withdraw the controversial measure. This all comes at a sensitive time for police community relations, says law enforcement experts that Brodsky the George Floyd case, had huge repercussions in France because there were also demonstrations here and also, we should not forget that we had for over a year. The yellow vests produce yellow vest. Protesters say they, too, were sometimes treated brutally by the police. That's left anger and resentment within the movement of mainly working class whites from the French Heartland. Political analyst faced off Barbie A says the interior minister tried to push macron further to the right. But he made a big mistake because He fought. The people will be with him on the policemen against the newspaper on the players on the Internet, and it was not the truth. The truth, says Barbie, eh, is that the French want security for their policemen and liberty for citizens. Eleanor
Sober Holiday Survival
"Welcome to recovery. Happy hour where we talk about life beyond the bottle and what happens after we stop drinking. I'm your host tricia and in my stocking this year. I hope santa brings me the limited edition. David bowie barbie doll that sold out last year. Despite my attempts to tell santa to preorder it from two different game stop locations just in case. Thank you for joining me well. Happy december or folks. We are smack dab in the middle of the holiday season. And i believe you can absolutely do this without drinking last week. We talked about tips for staying alcohol-free this holiday season and today i'm going to complete the rest of that list so go back and listen to last week's episode if you haven't already come back and join me when you're done. Are you back okay. today. I'm going to start off with this alcohol-free tip focus on the event you're celebrating. Yup parties are usually meant to celebrate a thing. You know an event a person whatever beyond our own addiction or gray area drinking problem whatever you wanna call it. It's also are usually our garbage culture that turns drinking into the focus of an event so for a holiday party. Think about what you're celebrating. That's jesus or hanukkah or just getting together with your family. Mix celebrating that thing your goal. Maybe you've got a relative in town who you normally don't get to see. Take some time to celebrate that you know catch up with them. Maybe it's getting to hold a new baby or play with your nieces and nephews. You can use these opportunities without alcohol to really be present and those moments and appreciate everything that's memorable and real about them. I always say the same thing about birthdays and weddings. The event is to celebrate a person doing something really special so make them what. You're celebrating because it's not all about us and getting drunk last week. I asked everyone to write a list of things. We like about the holidays and use that list as a resource and celebrate those things so find things to get excited about. It can be whatever you want. Bring ingredients to make a really cool any drink with like twelve different components get dressed up where high heels that you don't have to worry about falling off of bring a game like look for things to make a party fund because parties are supposed to be just that fun a great way to stay busy and distract yourself if you need. It is to help the hostess or the host or the person who's having the party go cleanup napkins offer to wash plates offer to help i guarantee you that. If you're listening to this podcast then you have absolutely been a party hosts worst nightmare at point in your life so use this as an opportunity to give back and level out your car a little bit. Here's a simple one. do not i repeat. Do not offer to be the designated driver. Especially if it's a party that might go late if you're feeling freaked out and you need to bail. Then you don't need a reason to stay put. You should always have an exit plan. You know and being someone's dd cancels that out entirely the couple of times that i've offered to do this. I ended up staying at a party way too late when i really just needed to go home. It's twenty twenty. We have uber and left for a reason so let people use it. You know a big part of getting through the holidays without alcohol is learning how to deal with our most triggering loved ones and having the tools not to drink over it boundaries are really big deal boundaries are a big deal for example if you know that someone at the gathering relentlessly pushes shots on you. Then no you're boundary ahead of time if that person offers me a shot. I'm going to say xyz if they keep offering me shots. I'm going to make my exit. You know you create a boundary beforehand. And if someone crosses the line you already know what to do to stay healthy and sober. You know it's just about having a plan had time. Another example is if you have a typical pattern. That's a reason behind your drinking like if communicating with your parents tends to be tents and. Let's say they're always saying something passive aggressive and you've never spoken up about it but instead you've always pushed it down and drink over it. Well this is the time to find a boundary not saying that you need to confront them during christmas and try to resolve like twenty five years of old trauma but you can say something like i need to go get some fresh air. I'm gonna go for a quick walk around the block. That's a boundary. You know when you decided not to engage in an activity that triggers you to drink or maybe it's one of those all day christmas parties that starts at eleven. Am and goes until midnight where everyone's been drinking for like thirteen straight hours. Maybe you've always stuck around because you thought that that was expected of you and you never had the words to speak up this year. Consider telling everyone beforehand that you've made plans for the second half of the day and you have to leave at three o'clock maybe your pet sitting any need to go home and feed the dog. It's up process of planning ahead and saying if this thing happens then i will choose to do this thing because it will keep me from drinking.

We got to hang out with in the green room before when I was pregnant when you're pregnant and you are just so chill and relaxed and it was like the Basque Calming Energy and fun and we so. Appreciate that this is the best part being with you. So I feel like that's something that people can't Google. I. Mean. It's hard because I am such an open book but now being a mom like I have realized that there are some things that I just WanNa keep Permian Justin and you'll feel that to like there's there's intimacy that doesn't need to be shared with the world and you know you can talk about it but We decided to not for right now, share is a photo on social media and it's been something that that we've kind of gone back and forth with but I'm really glad because he's ours maybe one day the world will really get to know him.

Sebene Selassie on Bringing Mindfulness into Every Part of Our Lives
"Seven it is such a pleasure to have you on untangled today. Thank you so much for being with us. Thank you, Patricia for having me. I want to start by asking you a little bit about your childhood. So why don't you tell us what were you like as a ten year old girl? How would you describe yourself? Wow ten years old. So I was born in Ethiopia. My mom was GPO Oban, my dad's Airtran, and we came to this country when I was three. And we moved into a very white upper middle class neighborhood in Washington northwest. Upper northwest DC, and at ten years old I would say I was pretty confused though. I lived at home, which was not very assimilated. So we ate you in food my parents spoke to us in. Iraq, we were part of that point small community of Ethiopian xlt now DC the DC areas large huge argest community business country. But at that time, there were only a few families and. We were all pretty tight and then my world of the neighborhood and school was very white, very upper middle class and it was confusing to move between those two worlds. So I was a Latchkey kid both my parents worked a so at ten years old coming home and spending time with my intellectually disabled sister who I felt pretty responsible for even though she's four years older than me. And I was learning how to navigate these two worlds, the world of home and Ethiopian culture and then the world of school and American media I watched a lot of TV I think I learned a lot about the culture around me from TV in popular culture, which probably not the best place to start understand your life and world so shy introverted. I was smart but did not do well in school at all at that age, and honestly, if there could have been a diagnosis at the time I was probably really depressed or at least Melancholic I. Think it had to do a lot with not understanding how these two different realities together he added. So in writing because at ten years old to feel that split between. Your experience at home in your experience at school can be so overwhelming and do you feel like you tried to Numb your feelings and just do what you need to do every day help your sister go to school what was your experience going through that time in your life I was very athletic kid at that age probably found a lot of release and any joy through sports through climbing trees through riding my bike riding skateboards soberly through my body and I lost that in my early adolescence, which is interesting. That was probably where could find a sense of belonging or connection. But in terms of school and relationships, I was a tomboy. So I didn't fit in with my girlfriends I remember going to sleepovers and friends wanting to play Barbie or dolls, and I just had no interest in that whatsoever. And I in a neighborhood full of boys. So I think I took a lot of refuge in physical play in activity and when I didn't have that I remember being numbed by television I watched a lot of TV as a kid they wanna get to this later the themes of your upcoming book and these themes of belonging and identity, and it's so interesting that. Your world was so focused on this kind of split identity as you were growing up and I think I've read that you started learning to meditate when you were a teenager is that right? What was your first experience there? Yeah. My brother, who's eight years older than me was probably as confused terms of his sense of identity and he became what's colloquially known as. Now, when I was fifteen or sixteen So my first introduction to eastern religions and spirituality and philosophy was through him and he was reading the I ching back of Gita and. Also had some Buddhist books at the time. So I started reading those things also started going to the street temple in downtown DC where a lot of punk rock kids hang out too. So it was kind of a cool scene at that point and started going to Cure Thanh chanting going to lectures and started to meditate very berry intermittently I didn't know what was doing. So by the time I got to my first year university, I started taking religion classes and ended up majoring in religious studies with a focus on Hindus men but. My entry way into, but just philosophy and thought was through that.

"barbie" Discussed on Best Case Worst Case
"That's friends without the our best feeds so skip. Where were you in your career with a particular case? You'RE GONNA talk to us about occurred. Who is the late? Nineteen Ninety S and early two. Thousands of this case happened. I was just finished up a huge investigation. Were we indicted guy on multiple multiple murders. I still had some fragments remnants of that case that was trying to finish this guy. That'll finish the case. Is it was Richard Heinous? They called him the Cuban on the street because of all his eerie similarity twos Al Pacino. In the hit movie scarf six finishing up case and really had no plans on doing anything else anytime soon but to wrap that up when an informant called. It was a female informants. She was a stripper down in the Fridge. Score and she says I've got a guy that bring in drugs here. That is bigger than the guy that's been in the papers referring to Risher paint. Course I didn't believe her so kind of brushed raw brusher all filing with going unbeaten with a girl and she had a friend that was and with a Mexican guy down in court and the Mexican guy was supplying all the strip clubs all the workers in the industries down there at the bars and the restaurants and so forth. So we started talking. Debriefing debriefing. Her I'm sorry. We decided that we were gonNA use her to make a buy from Denver to make a Boston another strip so we made a couple buys. We kinda worked herself up the ladder and we identified a guy by the name of Osborne tested before we talk about anymore. Into the case. Could you explain to our listeners? You say you were GONNA make a by from one person to another What does that entail has at work? So we had the STRIPPER INFORMANT. Who is willing to work on our behalf and what we did was. We made a couple recorded phone calls with her to the other stripper. That was living with this Mexican source. She called in. Ask The buy some cocaine. So the girl agreed. We wired up our informant the stripper. We gave her money and we sent her over there where she bought cocaine from Earth. Strip friend while the Mexican guy that was a source sat in the back room so she was an essential issue format as use an active informant where she participated in the buys. We couldn't send anyone with her because the guy was paranoid about anyone. He didn't know typical in the dope. Game being another informant or being on a police officer so met a couple of purchases of cocaine from this girl S. What got us on track watching the Mexican guy in the in the back and what kind of like what sort of a mountain you're talking about. And how do you pay for that? I mean how does that work. These were small amounts like a quarter also half Elsa crack you gotta remember strippers traditionally. Don't buy a whole lot of cocaine. There is for personal. Use mainly so to go in there and ask for a Kilo. Cocaine would be so out of the ordinary that was similar to we bought like a quarter ounce a half hours just intel just by to try to figure out who was in the house where they went afterwards to follow them around to see who they met with and just try to start an investigation and against who all's involved again a house halfheartedly end to it because I was finishing up this other investigation but it started to catch steam when we saw the Mexican guy the next day. When we'RE GONNA send out on bail on him go out to neurons eased in me with a series of guys that we knew were well known drug traffickers area. So I have a question you know as I've unfortunately constantly seen in Hollywood when they depict drug investigations and it goes all the way back in my memory to Miami vice where they would make a by and they would take a switchblade and stick it in and they tasted and say oh this is eighty five percent pure Columbia. Can you please talk to us? About how ridiculous. That is and what you really do. It's on the head that's absolutely ridiculous. We will never do that. What happens afterwards? Usually package in a little baggie. We opened the baggy. We have these little small drug. Id KISSES CALLED FIELD TESTS. Knit kits and you take a little bit out with a knife or something you put in there. And you pop these series of amps and if his cocaine turns up a bluish color this heroine might be a maroon. Color that identifies a drug but before going to make the by you obviously have good idea of what you buy and so you have the kiss all available but you have a kid that you know most likely what you're supposed to buy in this kind of gesture that drug right and that's a field test and then once that turns positive then you put it into evidence and where does it go. We ship it to the degray. Labs were The New Orleans division euro area that the labs in Dallas Texas and then they do the chemical actual real test of the cocaine or whatever substances allowed a lab reports on drugs. They're very boring. It's not nearly as exciting gem as watching the the hero take a nice little cocaine and taste it. Which is the right thing to do because Kim cocaine with with any kind of rat poison or stuff that could kill you ever do they but also you're not allowed to actually do drugs right when you were. Da Unless you get at Doj exemption in advance right correct so if you were to actually ingest some of these drugs especially not knowing exactly what it is not only would you risk getting very sick or dying but certainly lose your job right as absolutely true and you know I've seen situations where undercover agent has been with a couple of drug traffickers and they asked him or her to try the drugs and is typically. The undercover agent has some well story ahead of time such as. I work shortly test me every time I go out. I'm on probation. I can't you know I'm just doing it to make some money is come to the point before when we've had an Asia who wouldn't try drugs that shut down the deal and the dealer wouldn't sell to them for that very reason because you went dry. It's so he assumed that he was the police and he was right. All right so sorry. I interrupted you to ask all sorts of questions. But that's how we do things here at best case worst case because we take our listeners behind police lines and we WANNA know so. You've got this big murder cases multiple murder case that you're trying to clear up and you discover in this kind of Lewd Surveillance. Doing on a maybe. This case will be something but probably not think but suddenly you find that the Mexican contact is going and seeing people that you do recognize. So then what happens? New Orleans is a big small city. It's most of the traffickers bigger drug dealers in that area. If you've been an Asian around there are well known to the DA or to the FBI or any ats so when his Mexican Guy who's unidentified at times starting making trips around New Orleans in talking to drug dealers zip auto shops dachary shops in different places? We knew that we were onto south here. Just coincidentally it was about a week later after doing surveillance on him that we get a call from Jefferson Davis Sheriff's off. They had pulled over guy and when they pulled him over they went through their phones and they found a couple of phone numbers of guys that he was calling in New Orleans. They send it through the local. Da Office and it came back on the case. I had done with the Mexican guy here when they searched the car that the Mexican guys were in. Jefferson Davis Pairs. They found a bunch of drugs in fifteen kilos of cocaine in hidden compartments. So the Mexican guys that had been hold over agreed to follow through and do a controlled. Delivery of the cocaine in a controlled. Delivery is when someone gets Paul or pulled over on interstate with drugs. They decided that point. They're going to cooperate with the law enforcement. You see that guy and they're going to take that drug to its ultimate destination. And they're going to go through with delivering it to the person that is supposed to be receiving it and when that happens in law enforcement. Easley's whoops in and arrest the gathers receive the drugs. Well that's exactly what happened here. The two Mexican guys agreed to deliver it to New Orleans. The only problem was the Mexican guy that we had under surveillance at. That point wasn't going out to get it. He had one of the drug dealers that we were watching was going to do the dirty work for him so they showed up with the Bronco. The two deals that were cooperating. Investing guys and old the hotel parking lot we song go meet with a dealer that we knew dealer bug name. Austin Cast Osman got the keys and then the two dealers left the two Mexicans left in a cab which we'd already prearranged and we went. Put THEM ON ICE. We set up that night in waited on Osborne to go remove the drugs out the car. Eventually under when he turned dark he went out and with another guy. They went underneath it. The cocaine was in the gas tanks and one of the problems of this organization. Is They had a bronco? Wish they'd get good gas mileage again with right so they were having to fill up like every hundred five miles and so they had carefully chart everywhere they went because the the the gas tank compartment took up the majority of the room or the gas would a bet so when casten and his when co-conspirator went out unless the coke we've pulled up and arrested him before you continue to have a question so you mentioned that there were fifteen kilos. We have listeners. From all over the world who listen to this podcast I think probably many of them don't know how large a kilo is. So can you describe its overall physical size? We have some idea. A kilo is like a flat brick object. Obviously two point two pounds as two thousand coke so in other words debt. That answer so that we were going to buy that we bought from the stripper informant there. Thirty six ounces in a kilo gram of coke so fifteen kilos is thirty something thirty four pounds. Whatever pure cocaine at the time I believe is going around twenty three twenty four thousand a kilo. So that's not Jim. You're the math guy that seems like a lot of money. Well it's more than a dollar and less than three million to you know. Thank you John where I know. Because that's the kind of level of math you have in your brain so out true sadly so when you said these guys agreed to do controlled sale right. I failing you skipped over a lot of really intense negotiations there. Could you please Philipson? So what happened was when they got pulled over first. They denied not having any cocaine. We went to go through all the usual stuff. They denied tonight. Neither Canine dog came out in alerted on the car. Eventually one guy started cooperating under threat of going to jail and he says yes I will take the dope I will take the drugs and deliver it to this guy. I have a phone number of a guy in New Orleans. What we didn't know at that time was this. Bronco was one of many that this drug organization INVESCO will use them and he didn't the Guy We rested and tells the whole story. That Bronco was on certain schedule. It had to be there at a certain time because once it stopped and unloaded in New Orleans. They loaded the cash up. That next one was going back to. Mexico in Mexico was not leaving the come to New Orleans so they would pass each other on the way. See You got literal. Someone doing logistics legitimately logistics going on in these drug organizations where they're tracking and timing things so that they know if someone's been intercepted for those so when we got the drugs on our end the guy wouldn't cooperate. I The guy that we already had in custody. He told us you need to get the money and get it headed back to Mexico. Because they're going to be calling me. They're expecting call from me. I'm like we're not paying for this right. I mean he sees the drugs certainly pay twenty three twenty four thousand dollars a kilo for fifteen kilos to send back to. Mexico just wasn't gonNA happen so we had him make a couple phone calls to the Mexican source who was in the way. Will the radio. Mexico recorded them of course and at that point. We just assumed we had arrested. The bad guys investigation was over. It was GONNA to be some small follow-up where we look at the phones and try to debris from an interview on but for the most far that investigation was our was.
"barbie" Discussed on Short Wave
"Before we wrap up. I haven't told you the best part about the whole treetop Barbie thing. Once the treetop Barbie started getting some attention mattel found out and they called Malini. They said well. We'll whoa you can't just make your own barbies and seldom shut it down. Molini said she was sorry she really didn't mean any harm and I think it's still have the idea if they wanted it and they said No. No No. You can't do this. You can't do. This can't do this and I said well how interesting I know. A number of journalists. Who'd be really interested in in knowing that Mattel is trying to shut down a small brand woman who's trying who's trying to inspire young girls to become scientists and explorers. Malini did you. Strong are Mattel I did. He responded very nicely. They said we'll get back to you. We asked about this and they didn't get into specifics about any passed back and forth with Malini but no leany says the company told her. Okay fine you can keep making treetop Barbie which she did pretty quietly for the last ten or fifteen years and then and then last year I got a call from National Geographic and they said Doctrine Carney. We recognize that you have you know. Sort of forged the way with his Barbie Science explorers sort of thing. We have partnered with Mattel to make these five explorer barbies. And would you be the adviser on this and I said fantastic dream dream to come. You say it's about stinking time. I didn't say stinking time. I said it's about time it's so great that you're doing this so so it happened. Now there's a polar marine biologist Barbie astrophysicists Barbie wildlife photojournalist. Barbie entomologist Barbie and Wildlife Conservationists Barbie what would you say to people that were saying like Barbie is still this unachievable image of like beauty for women you should stay away from it yeah I think about that a lot. I think it's a big question that we need to ask ourselves. My sense is yes. She's a plastic doll. Yes she's configured in all the ways that we should not be thinking of how women are should be shaped and yes she looks perfect which you know women scientists especially always thinking. I have to be perfect to be smarter more productive but the fact that now there are barbies out here in the world these explorer barbies that are being role models for little girl so that they can literally see themselves as a nature photographer or an astrophysicist and that fills me with joy because it brings me back to when. I was an eight year. Old Kid all alone up in a tree saying I want to somehow help trees but I don't quite know how now these girls have a way to do that. And I think that's splendid Malini Nadkarni. There's a whole video of our trip to the canopy. Find a link to it in our episode Info. All right knowing all right well Ways to go down one of them is repelling one well. Three ways one is falling which we don't do the other one is just okay before we go. One thing we're going to do on the show from time to time is answer questions from you about all things. Science Science Related Question. Email us at short wave at MPR DOT org. We may answer it for you.

"barbie" Discussed on Short Wave
"Hey everybody matty Safai. Here was shortwave reporter. Emily Kwong today. We thought you might appreciate a little joy in your life especially now that's right here on short wave we want to bring you up. Does it explain what's happening with the corona virus but also episodes that feature other interesting science like this one from the very first week of shortwave. It's probably one of my favorites. Oh yeah mine too. It's got rain. Forests SLINGSHOTS A DECADE-LONG CONFLICT WITH BIG Barbie bad gets rope burn. Let's not love the rope? Burn Kwong it's clearly the roburt. These are the sacrifices you make manny right onto the show enjoy. You're listening to shortwave from. Npr One day this past summer I got to visit a rainforest. Okay that's licorice fern. That is the scientific name. Is Paula podium vulgarity? Ecologist NENAD CARNEY. This is called sledge. This is called Club Moss. It's actually very primitive Plant leaning has been studying in exploring ecosystems like this for thirty five years. Okay so that is called Bikram. That's another species of Moss. I like to call it pledging moss. Just because it's so soft and so please so much like a little pillow. Here's Flynn's this is recommend trim. There's like three four different species of MOSS RIGHT THERE. Couple other things about this rainforest. You're probably thinking rainforests so tropics now. We were in the Pacific Northwest Olympic National Forest in Washington state and it's called a temperate rainforest A. Rainforest because we get it's characterized by having a lot of rainfall there about one hundred twenty inches a brain a year. The other thing about this trip to the forest. Is that all these plants so see how soft these mosses are yes. Don't you just WanNa sleep on them? Yeah all of new weenies. Decades-long work. Okay I'M GONNA come up side by side with you. All of it is about wow sixty feet off the ground for many. This is awesome awesome. This is called the canopy pretty much everything above the forest floor all the way up to the tops of the trees. Come up with me now. Little Rope canopy. Here is a dizzying thicket of bright green leaves and Mosses and ferns all bathed in sunlight. And we knew very little about it because the canopy is literally called the last biotic frontier. It's been so poorly studied. It really aren't very many people who studied the canopy. Feel like when you say. The last biotic frontier should look off into the distance. Ready to the last biotic frontier so today on the show pioneering scientists Malini non Carney on the canopy plus a little later on in the episode weenies decades. Long fight to get more women into science. And how she found unlikely ally in Barbie. Yeah I thought it was weird too. It's not that we're the sticker up and you're listening to shortwave from NPR. Alright so let's back up down back on the ground in Olympic national forest. Malini told me that in the grand scheme of things canopy sciences. Actually PRETTY NEW. People have been studying forest for centuries but it's only been in the last twenty twenty five thirty years that people have actually climbed up into the forest canopy to understand the environment up in the tree tops. One of the hurdles for scientists was literally just figuring out how to get up to the tops of the trees so noelene a few friends figured out a way to adapt some mountain climbing techniques to get up into the canopy and that means shooting ropes into the trees. So I invented this thing called the master caster which is metal rod and we welded it so it has this little hole here for the line. Basically this master caster thing is part fishing. Rod Part slingshot. This looks like a garage sale. A fourteen year old boy's dream could both and and so with a fishing weight loaded into the slingshot. So I'm thinking right up there. Malini cast masterfully. You we set the ropes now on your weight on this got harnessed in step down and then started the long hard process of inching up the road. You're going to go into a crouch and lift your legs up. That's kind of like a caterpillar and then San exactly you. Well you know. I've got to kind of over. The course of her career researching canopies in the Pacific northwest as well as in the forest of Costa Rica. Malini has documented all kinds of things about the canopy sixty feet up this giant maple tree. She shows me one of the cooler ones. Just looking at the underside of these mosses like. There's this canopy soil Allowing Dig Samat over here. Malini peels back a thick fistful of Moss from the branch on the tree. Instead of bark we're looking at tightly packed bed of Brown dirt. I mean that has actual soil that is basically composed of the dead and decomposing. Moss's that live up here and there are like earthworms that live up. Here are a big round up exactly. It's called into canopy soil. Wow look at that. And it's a weird you know you hear smelling the soil smell. But you're you know you're up sixty feet above the forest floor. So it's it's this sort of whole world that the canopy creates they're living plants or mosses there ferns their soil and it's all kind of invertebrates that live here birds that forage for these invertebrates that live in the canopy soil. So it's like this microcosm this mini co system. That's going on kind of independent of the forest floor. But at the same time interacting the forest as a whole of course today canopies all over the world face threats from climate change from logging fire deforestation and a lot of work. Now is about trying to figure out what would happen. If we lost such a complex interconnected ecosystem. I think it's important for canopies to be as intact as possible. Because they do foster so much diversity that you can get seventy species of mosses on a single tree and each of those mosses sort of living life with its insects and invertebrates and supporting birds. And so it's just part of this sort of whole cycle of what makes a primary important. Here's another thing leany discovered when she was first getting started in canopy research. There were very few women. Scientists doing this kind of work and so she set out to change that this was. This was just a fabulous day. That happened in my lab forest. Canopy lab undergraduates worked there. My graduate students would work me and we were just kicking around by these. Look how could we make the forest canopy more meaningful to mattress other scientists but to regular people like how about young girls? They need encouragement. And somebody said. Well what about Barbie aright pause Barbie time because she was busy enough helping to basically create an entirely new field of scientific study in the early two? Thousands deleted decided. You know in her free time she would try to create market and get into the hands of little girls and boys everywhere treetop Barbie. What took iconic doll which is so symbolic of what young girls aspired to. What if we just put this shell around her? Which is a canopy biologist? So called Mattel the company that owns Barbie and then when I propose this idea they said no no no. We're not interested that has no meaning to us We make our own barbies. You know you can't do this. Forget it forget it. So that's when we said well. Why don't we just do it ourselves? And if Mattel's not going to take a couple of trips to goodwill later to get some recycled barbies with the Angela's making our top barbies. And I started bringing campy Barbie along with me and you know talking to my fellow scientists and saying look guys we not only have to do our good science we need to start encouraging people from outside science and and this is one way that we might do it trees are wonderful arenas for discovery this is Malini is two thousand nine tedtalk which by the way is a hugely nerve wracking thing for scientists. And you're hooked up to this hands-free Britney Spears Mike to give a talk. That will basically be your top. Google hit for life to stand on stage. Showing off a little plastic treetop Barbie. Should I really be spending time with this? Are PEOPLE GOING TO THINK? It's weird that me as a scientist and me as a woman scientist is a brown woman. Scientist is spending her time doing this. they're sort of risk. That goes along with that but I felt that the potential good that could come out of it of providing a real role model for a little girl. Who doesn't even know that that the canopy exists to study. You know like when I was a kid and so if that can happen then I think it's worth the risk what we do my students in my lab and is we buy barbies from goodwill and value village. We dress her enclosed that have been made by seamstresses and we send her out with a canopy handbook. And my feeling is thank you that we've taken this pop icon and we have just tweaked her a little bit to become ambassador who can carry the message that being a woman scientist studying treetops is actually a really great thing.

"Hello this is Stephanie. And this is talk tales and Trivia. This show where I talk about pop culture trivia. Listen you know. I'm a mad researcher when it comes to pop culture trivia and I love sharing all my information with you on pop culture trivia because I want you to share this with family and friends. It is so much fun. Listen on today's episode. We are talking about the Barbie doll. But not just about the Barbie doll about the founder of the Barbie Doll Empire Ruth Handler and who she was. Okay let's get started. We'll Barbie is the figurehead of the brand of Mattel dolls which included other family members and friends of Barbie American businesswoman Ruth Handler is credited with the creation of the Barbie doll in nineteen fifty. Six Ruth went to Europe and found a doll named Bild Lilli using German dot called Bill Lily as her inspiration but built lily wasn't really girls but rather for men to look at and put on their rear view. Mirror and perhaps fantasize about Really but ruth had a different idea. You see ruth handler. Head watched her own daughter. Barbie play with paper dolls giving them adult roles and Ruth had seen dolls that were on the US market and wanted to introduce a powerful and progressive role model for little girls. Ruth saw herself as a career woman so she wanted to make Barbie a career woman and a progressive representation of a grown up woman. She didn't want the life of being a housewife. A mother and staying at home. No Ruth saw herself in Barbie. So the Barbie was a symbol of being. A little girl would dream of being as an adult. Ruth wanted to present the Barbie doll as being progressive making decisions and in charge of their own lives and she was really all about that throughout her career. Well prior to the Barbie doll the other doll manufacturers were only making baby dolls so ruth saw something that was missing in the market. So in Nineteen fifty-nine the Barbie doll was available in stores soon after their word. Different barbies in nineteen sixty three was career. Barbie and in nineteen sixty five was miss astronaut and in Nineteen ninety-one was Barbie for president. Can you believe it? It's true? Every career was covered. Barbie reflected all types of elements in the culture depending on the year and what was happening in history from work feminism to having the kindle as almost almost an accessory that wasn't really needed there was literally a Barbie for every girl in Nineteen fifty-nine Barbie made three hundred fifty one thousand dollars in revenue and in nineteen sixty eight Barbie. Mattel had earned five hundred million dollars in revenue because of that success. Mattel became a fortune five hundred company. It is estimated that over a Billion Barbie dolls have been sold worldwide and over one hundred fifty countries with Mattel claiming that free Barbie dolls are sold every second really bobby products now include the range of dolls with their clothes and accessories and a large range of Barbie branded goods. Such as books apparel and cosmetics and Barbie also has a media franchise since one thousand nine hundred eighty seven. Yep Barbara began appearing in a series of animated films well in Nineteen Seventy four section of Times Square in New York City was renamed Barbie Boulevard for a week to show how popular the Barbie doll had become. Ninety percent of the Barbie doll buyers are women at an average age of forty purchasing more than twenty Barbie dolls each year. That's a Lotta dolls. And now the bad news. Well there is Barbie Syndrome and it is a term that has been used to depict the desire to have a physical appearance and lifestyle representative of the Barbie Doll. Well that's not good. It is most often associated with pre teenage and adolescent females but is applicable to any age group or gender a person with Barbie Syndrome attempts to emulate the dolls physical appearance even though the doll has unattainable body proportions. Well it does but we'll talk about that a little bit later. This syndrome is seen as a form of body dismore via and results in various eating disorders as well as an obsession with cosmetic surgery. It's really not good. It was in two thousand five though that there was a decline in sales and Michelle had to think of Barbie in a new way to get those buyers back the documentary. Tiny shoulders tells us more about this part and Barbie's history while the documentary talks to true life employees at the Barbie headquarters. Did you know there was a Barbie headquarters? I sure didn't testing different colors and body types for the new generation of girls changing the ideals that were set in the past as a normal body. Looks like it's the challenge that the new Barbie makeover is having right now. Well it's more like an overhaul project.

Thoroughly enjoyed TV's. Yeah. On nestle? So I mean it's. They're not paying us. You can be totally honest. I feel it's one of those things I feel they're definitely geared a little bit towards like mature audience. And the fact that they, they make fun of the brand a little bit, but not enough that, like, I love kin where doesn't know how to do anything. He does not know he has to be bailed out by Barbie all the time. Yeah. It's pretty great. It's for a while. Yeah, it's a funny. Yeah. Pretty much. That's very funny, because like if you've ever watched any of the movies because I have two little girls. So we've watched some of the movies and you sit there and you're just like, oh, dear Lord, one is this thing. And but the TV show is pretty comical. Yeah. They it is, she has like a nemesis, and I remember her name at the moment, but she's gone Cal. Basically. Yeah. Basically they. Yeah. They put it as like a, an Archie comic book style. You know where Ken is definitely like an Archie, type where you just going on. You remember that Pacific? He had a fix the car. Yes. Good. Yeah. And what was the piece it was like a weird name. They kept calling it the like sort of an F I thing. Yes. But I don't remember what capacitor. One wind up being that skipper came out, and just finally fix the car. Yeah. Barbie's younger sister comes out. I don't even know if it was skipper, I think it was the Stacey, you're one of those younger one car mechanic, Barbie from the. But yeah, so it's. I enjoy the show. I do. I I enjoy it. It's, it's quite comical. She had a show on Netflix. Actual it's actually in their short little episode like me, like twenty minutes. They're short. Little episodes, quite cons. Kenza navy. This is the best casting choice you've ever done. Yeah. But I really wanted to point out that the yacht club had cupcakes in that. That is fitting. But I mean. Cakes. Yeah. I would pick cupcakes over pancakes. Yeah. I mean, is it the best choice waffles for little kids to be watching? I mean, I, I don't think they would get a lot of the, the jokes. I think a lot of them go right over their heads. Which is nice. If you're watching it with your kids, because you get all those jokes, you know, a lot of kids stuff has adult jokes in it, that they're not gonna get go Scooby doo even Disney stuff. Yeah. I watch teen. Titans go all the time. Oregon foregone trail episode that I sit there and laugh the entire time. He's like looking at me all weird 'cause I got every single reference because I remember playing that game. Yeah. I mean do I think it's like the anti Christ. No, I wouldn't think so. No, that was married. It's horrible. It was horrible messages. Either. I mean really look at it. It's I don't need a man to do this because I can do it myself. Look, how crazy this man is he can't do it. Yeah. Moving onto Twitter geo sees movie says I used to unrest Barbies and put on a show for GI. Joe? And I responded back to him. Who didn't amazing is old school? GI Joes, or the ones, I grew up on that were like you know what, like three inches or whatever. And I would imagine it'd be the old school ones, because that'd be weird even though the giant, naked woman perfect all women, make it are great. But I think the huge ones would be kind of little scary. But if you do the tiny GI Joe's Barbie gets a two for one. Oh my.
