New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy on concerns of a rise in coronavirus cases
"Earlier this week, the governors of the tri-state Area New York New Jersey, and Connecticut announced that visitors arriving from states with surging coronavirus numbers will be asked to self quarantine for fourteen days or face fines. Here's Becky. We welcome Governor Phil Murphy from New Jersey. He's. He's been watching his state open up after four long months and and governor. Thanks for being with us this morning. When you get out there, you really start to see people who were back out in restaurants again going out shopping out of beaches and parks and a just wonder as you watch this. If you worry that, we're going to see a rise in cases, and what numbers you're watching how you're measuring this to decide if we're doing this the right way first of all, it's good to be back with you and we do worry. Which is why we've been taking this in very specific. Phases in terms of reopening. Outdoors is a lot less concerning than indoors. That's not to say there aren't concerns outside, but the the concerns pale in comparison to say inside lacking ventilation sedentary close proximity. That's a bad. Those are bad characteristics for this virus. The things we look at most closely in terms of our guides are rate of transmission. If it's under one that means less than one other person is getting infected if they're in contact with someone who has got the virus. The spot positivity rate, meaning what percentage of folks getting tested are actually positive for covid nineteen, and thirdly as new hospitalizations, those are the three here and now data points. We look at a lot of data, but those are the three that matter the most we have seen things. Get a little out of control in states like Texas. Florida Arizona, even California you're starting to see some real pickups in these things and we spoke with Dr Scott. GOTTLIEB I know you're familiar with Scott and I'm well. He said that contact tracing is not being done very effectively in a state like Texas. They don't know why young people are getting it. These states are really doing. Very good contact tracing where to isolate the source of the spread. They think it's congregate settings where young people gathering because young people are the ones who are getting infected at a higher percentage, and so they've. They've identified the bars. And most of the people, apparently most of the people who are presenting sick, the young people preserving sick have identified that they've been in barbies. Lay or a lot of them when I talked to the physicians, but they don't know for sure qepared. Are you in New Jersey in terms of contact tracing? Try and figure out if there's a spike in cases where it's coming from and what? I can't. I can't speak to the specifics of Texas Scott is a great guy and has been a great adviser Jersey Guy by the way. We have we have since day? One remember none of us at any of this at the beginning, so what if you're looking for a source of comfort, folks or silver lining its testing tracing plans? Ties isolate folks who have the virus. We had none of that as a country or state three or four months ago. We now test him the top couple per capita states in the nation. With the great help of Rutgers, our flagship State University. We're adding meaningfully till the already nine hundred contractors we have. We hope to get up over two thousand within the next couple of weeks. I hope and believe that our approach will be effective. Again our numbers have gotten notwithstanding the loss of over thirteen thousand people. It's hard to believe we've lost that many in New Jersey alone. Our numbers have gotten dramatically better, so we've been able to do the contact tracing up until now at least with local and county tracers. We have nine hundred of them on the field so far so good, but we WANNA. Make sure we've got a capacity that looks like our testing capacity. Just in case and I think we all have to be prepared for this. We hope for the best, but prepare for the worst that this is going to flare up. And we need that tracing infrastructure in place. anecdotally again, it's far more concerning inside than outside. At least a New Jersey I can't speak for Texas. That's where our biggest concerns are
Has the Pandemic Changed You?
"We don't really know what's going to happen with the economy with financial markets with monetary policy with the pandemic. The world is a constant series of endless surprises. Both good and bad and then as things happen that we and others don't anticipate we emotionally react to them and often overreact. Those surprises we become fearful in greedy asset bubbles conform well other acid categories. That might get too cheap. This pandemic the coronavirus pandemic has been a major shock to me and I think to most people. We certainly didn't anticipate it. And now we're coping with a dramatically different world in previous episodes. I've discussed the economic monetary and investment impact of the pandemic and its aftermath in this episode. I want to focus on how this change has impacted US personally. I see three patterns that are emerging two of which I've discussed in an earlier episode of the podcast episode one ninety seven the power of less and local these three emerging patterns are less local and leap less the principal. I've discussed a lot the same. Nicholas tile up in his book skin in the game talked about a principle called via negative. He wrote that. Knowledge grows by subtraction by identifying things. That aren't working. And removing those things he says the act of removing is powerful and less error prone then acting by addition as we've been isolated lockdown in our homes. It's given us time to think about the things that we have and do. We really need them. I'll give you a simple example this past Friday the prelude I my daughter. My daughter-in-law and my son drove three cars for seventeen hours straight through FROM PHOENIX TO IDAHO. And once we arrived here the pro. I went up to our cabinet. Open it up because we're going to spend most of the summer here in Teton Valley. We have a bit of a mice problem at this cabin. There were mice droppings everywhere. We had to clean them up. My approach to combat adding mice is to put out bait boxes with Barbie poison. I spoke to the previous owners about this. And they said they didn't have any problem with mice although they lived here full time and maybe they had a cat but my approach this time is. I took all the boxes away because for one thing when mice would come in and start eating it would wake me up and so I figured just them all out. Don't attract mice by giving them something to eat and then we'll see what happens now. This is a simple example. Simple experiment to see how it works out. But I suspect there's other things that you're doing less of gyms have been closed for most of this time. I bought a kettle bell and have been using that for strength training. So I'm canceling my gym membership. A new listener wrote me. The other day said he couldn't go to the gym so he discovered podcasting and discovered my podcast. We're travelling less. Airline travel is down ninety percent from a year ago. There was an article recently in the Wall Street. Journal talked about how air travel is going to change less direct flights slower boarding process as they board from the rear. First temperature checks before you get on the plane. Perhaps immunity passports everyone wearing mask not going to be as much fun to travel by. Plane Anymore. What are you doing less of are considering doing less of perhaps less going out less business less travel most people are doing less their subtracting things from their lives and it can be powerful. We can give us a sense of relief when we remove something from our life. Now it means we need to be strategic when we add something. We can't just extract ourselves from the economy but we can be strategic in our purchases which brings us to the second emerging pattern of local. Many many people have started working remotely and have loved it. I've had two friends that mentioned to me recently that they never want to have to go back to the office again. One of the outstanding questions is how permanent will this be? And the potential impact on commercial real estate commercial real estate prices were down ten percent year over year in April. We've seen this tram go back and forth. There was a phase where remote work was very much in fashion. And then the CEO's wanted to bring the workers back so they could all collaborate. So I don't see all companies doing this but I certainly do believe you'll see much more remote work because you can be more productive. I have worked remotely for almost twenty years now and you can be highly productive. Other aspects of local supply. Chains have been severely disrupted by this pandemic companies realized that maybe such an extensive global supply chain has some weaknesses. Will we see more? Local domestic manufacturing you're seeing modes of transportation be more local. New York Times reported in March nationwide sales of bicycles equipment and repair services almost doubled from the past year. A lot of people don't want to commute on the subway anymore or the buses and so they want to commute by bicycle. See how that goes when winter comes. These are local trans. The pro and I are going to do much more local travel. We are purchasing a camper conversion. This is a two thousand. Chevy suburban converted into a camper with solar panels. Abedin back no kitchen. But we'll be doing a lot more distributed camping on bureau of Land Management and National Forest Land in Idaho Wyoming and Montana more local with bet your local pattern for shopping. How has that changed? We've done a lot more curbside. Pickup of groceries takes more planning. It can be a little more frustrating. We busted on instant card that can be frustrating to the other day at the grocery store. We ordered two pounds of bananas and two Carrots and we got two bananas and two pounds of Carrots with institute. We Wanted Rama noodles. They didn't have any says. They substituted two huge bags of cheese and CARAMEL. Popcorn mixed together. How you interact locally with WHO? This is one of the biggest changes that I see. We can't be locked down in our homes forever. We're going to have choose to interact. If you have kids they want to interact and so deciding how. And what type of social distancing any social distancing will you use will be critical? We're going to have to kind of navigate this new culture until there's a vaccine if we get a vaccine. I was somewhat surprised as we drove those many miles from Phoenix to Idaho. How FEW PEOPLE? We saw wearing masks and how many people we saw gathering together strangers at restaurants or stores. It's almost as if people think government says the economy's open so we're back Enormou- now maybe the pandemic will just go away. But that doesn't appear to be with. The science suggests the infection rate was very high before the economic shutdown and now the curve has been flattened but everything. I've seen suggests the coronavirus has not gone away bowl. See and we have to figure out how are we going to navigate our social interactions locally
How One Day at a Time's Isabella Gomez Found Her Strength
"No amount of money you could pay me to be in my teens again. Oh my God no thank you and I like barely just got out of them and I'm like how did I do? It was special. Because you're teens were not. I don't know what normal is but they're certainly not average. Yeah they were definitely not the norm going through it. I'm somebody that lives in my head a lot so I never really settled into what all of it meant until I look back at it. For example I'm an immigrant and for some reason I always saw myself as I Jan note. You're an immigrant like you. I remember living in Columbia. I lived there until I was ten like I had this whole other live. I didn't notice it as much going through it until I started working more. And then people saw me differently and then people started acting a little different and then especially once I moved to La. I realized that A just wasn't the same my senior year I did online. I never went to Prom. I guess I was Valedictorian. But nobody told me. I didn't go to graduation since all these things that like normal quote unquote people. Don't get but I get to go to award shows and being the same room as Lemon Maranda and I get to go on sad and like have a graduation onset and like I feel like I'm getting all of these meaningful experiences. They're just very different. From what the average I guess kid would have so much of one day at a time is about family. What is your family? Like my family's the best I will right now. I have my mom and my dad. I have an uncle and aunt in a little cousin in Florida and the rest of my family's in Colombia still so my parents and I- Super Close. My mom had me when she was nineteen so she was just kind of always a friend instead of a mom. And we're just really tight you've always said my parents are my best friends especially my dad. My mom gets really upset about it because she's like it's team. Surgery Team Isabella against me. But Dad admires super similar. And they're just so much fun. You started acting really young Tell me about your first acting job in Columbia. My first acting job That I remember I've noticed. I have a pretty bad memory but I'm pretty sure this is my first one is I did a commercial for a Toilet Paper Company in Columbia and I remember when I was five or six. I randomly went up to my parents and was like I want to be an actor and the Industry in Columbia is so small and it's mostly no allies and there's not a lot of kids in those and so they were like we don't know what to do but my mom had a really close friend who was in the industry so she was like. Hey My daughter wants to act. And he was like cool. Let's put her in this thing. I'm doing and I just remember it being the most fun I've ever had. I've also I'm an only child and I love adult. I've always just done better around adult so I was the only kid onset and they were asking me all these big questions about like what I wanted to wear and like. They put the camera in front of me and I remember people kind of being like. Don't be nervous or whatever and I was like nervous. This is the coolest thing that's ever happened. And then I got paid with two barbies instead of money because there is no union in Columbia and I thought you know I was like what six seven I was this bill coolest thing ever? I get to be in front of a camera and I get free barbies. This is the dream when I made it. I hope you have negotiated a better day. Rate for your. I've I've raised my standards of it. Then when your ten you moved to Orlando. What was the impetus for the move? So my dad had another brother that lived in in. He was a half brother that lived in Florida that they had lost touch and he kind of reentered the picture and was like I'd love to reconnect with the family and so we came and visited and kind of fell in love with the US. And I think overall you know there's the idea of there's a better life waiting for you in the US and at the time my family members that lived here. We'd love to have you in like my dad had a job at the company if he wanted to come and it just seemed like everything clicked into place and it was a bit of a no brainer. Then Twenty fifteen you moved to La Was that to pursue acting. Yes yes and it was actually my dad's call I. We had been obviously toying with the idea of moving to La. I was so scared. I'm very scared of change. I don't love it and so it was my dad though was like you know what we're moving this summer and that's that and we did. We got in a car and drove cross country. And here we are. That's wild. It was so wild and did things pick up immediately or was there a moment or like this is a terrible mistake. Oh my God so the first time I felt like a terrible mistake was I was in our tiny little apartment and school hadn't started yet and they had no friends. My car wasn't here yet. We didn't have Wifi and I remember just sitting in my room and being like what did I do like what is this. I don't I'm going into my junior year and I know nobody and I didn't even have an agent out here so that was scary and then I also remember so my first six months. I auditioned all the time and especially pilots season. I think my I was going like five six times a week. Which is more than I had ever auditioned. And I didn't get a single callback in six months. Not One callback out of hundreds of auditions brutal. And I'm seventeen and I just made my family leave everything they know to come pursue this thing that I thought I was ready for. And I'm not even getting a callback and I remember just being so distraught and like not even knowing like what to do because I understood the industry but also in a way in Florida I was kind of quote unquote bigger fish in a small pond so I was like. Oh I'm going to get there and I'm going to book and I didn't and I remember it all kind of shifted for me. We went on a cruise to Hawaii and I was on a beach in Hawaii with my parents. Talking about it in they were talking to me about how like I wasn't having fun anymore. Like auditioned what come in and it wasn't exciting. It was something I dreaded. Didn't WanNa go and I felt so stressed and so I just said you know what if I'm not getting combacks anyway. I'm just GonNa have fun and enjoy the thing that I moved here for that I love and so after that I started just going for fun and auditioning as a thing that I like to do and that's when I tested for that other show and then two months later I twenty at a time.
"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.

"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.

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.

Nikita Dragun Doubles Down on Victorias Secret & Talks Rapper Admirer
"Don't know if you remember this whole beef between Dragon. And Victoria's secret when Victoria secret's CMO said. There is no room for transgender model along those lines because transgender. They're trying to sell a fantasy first of all honey. You haven't been online dating kind of you would know that. Trans is and has always been a fantasy. This woman was not fighting for anything of inclusion and I was so proud to have her here. Please welcome someone who has changed the lingerie game. Forever Nikita Dragon. Who are you MAKINA legal real name? Okay first and foremost let me start off by saying you have the clapback of the year. That's why you're here. Yeah but when I dug deeper into your story. It's actually very interesting. So before we get to the clapback of them century. I want to start off with you. You are from Mexican in Viet Bac Mexican via background which to me seems to the most traditional backgrounds ever solid in their ways. Let me to say so. How did you live in? Come out as a trans person to two of the craziest backgrounds. I was very fortunate. I came in a very Big Entitlement family and I think ultimately my parents just wanted to see me really happy and for a while I was really content. Just being a boy I was a gateway for eighteen years of my life. Unfortunately I'm like oh no one those those I was I was really content. I came up pretty early on and I was just okay for a really long time and I had everything set up for me I had. I was living in Virginia at the time. That's where I grew up in a military family as well also not only multicultural but my parents are both from military backgrounds of both the military still to this day And it was really weird. It was really really weird. There was no gay person in my family. You know how to to talk about an uncle. Who are Ya maybe did marry a girl and maybe have some kids that you know. We don't know on the love but in my family absolutely no percent. Maho bloodline in the Dragon. Blood Line of being queer anything and I was openly gay and I was cool with that but then I just felt this weird moment. I wanted something even more. You know that point when you're just like I'm okay S. Know for sure because there was a point. Obviously I'm a black gay man from South Louisiana so coming out as gay was tough and I didn't know what gay meant so I always thought alike. Boys I must WANNA be girl. At what age did you connect that? This isn't just about being gay. This is something deeper like five. Stacks no I swear on every way everything how because how early what are you in preschool. All your five five kindergarten spiders old. I remember experience like yesterday. I fully believed when I was born that I was a woman. Swear to swan everything I just. Didn't you know obviously when you're young? You're not thinking anything. Truly just thought it was woman my parents let me play with barbies. My parents let me be really feminine. you know. Every time we used to play little video games. Brothers are cry unless I was a girl character. I truly thought I was a woman and it wasn't until I was in preschool. I would dress up with the other girls and I would play dress up. I promise dresses Preschool teacher was really cool shelter her. Yes yes login preschool on a military base you're gonna May Melanie Hainkel But it's crazy because one of the days another teacher team in from a different class and she saw me playing dress up and she was like. What are you doing like yelling at me freaking out on the teacher? This is disgusting. You're you're letting him do this. We need to call his parents. Like going really. It was really traumatic for sure. I think it was just such a crazy moment. I mean your whole world up to that point is just like finding games. You remember that I remember that. So that was the absolute first moment when I was there something different about me and I need to hide it. Who was the first person you told? Was that conversation like that. You are trans because for me. Sam Telling someone that I was gay was a liberating so for you telling someone who you truly were must have been terrifying but liberating who was the first person to trust it. I I had a really weird moment because for me the first time I ever even said it allowed was online up until that point. I was in biggest denial phase. I was like no. I'm just a super hyper feminine gay man and I was like okay with that but when I moved out here too late three years ago and started to Mike Transference and starting to the first person I've ever met with Trans but it was here And just really getting involved in that world. I just cut being so I just didn't want to accept that. Denial Phase I came out to my two best friends in. You came out to one point. Eight million people. Yes what. How does what started Nicole Journey? I turn on the camera and I was looking at the camera. I said I am transgender and I just thought well if I put out online I'm GONNA have to face. It was the first time it ever even spoken out loud. Never even said it in the mirror never even like thought of it. I just was like if I just put it out online. I'm just GONNA have to deal with it and then all of a sudden Viral and I have my aunts uncles calling me my parents or calling me the next. Stay with your mother found out he am from Youtube. Was that by design or did you just feel like if you were honest with a billion people that it would be easier that way than doing one on one. I think I did think it would be easier. I I was just so scared about what everyone would think. I'm that type of person round like I just have to jump into it and that's what I did. I literally just took the believes imbalanced jumped the rage and I mean I never thought it would become viral. I never thought people would yet all of a sudden it just blew up overnight and I was like. Oh my God now. Everyone knows about crazy movie moment for me. It's so funny because I've lived here for eight years in it takes bitches lifetimes to become snatched in you snatched it up in three mother Mir's hot. Did that transition happen. Like what was the process much money? 'cause you look expensive expensive all the time a walking investment for shore for me. I just am very goal oriented. I'm like if I see something that I want. If there's something that I wanNa do do it and I was just super determined. I mean a lot of people really were on me for transitioning as fast as they did. It took me about a year to fully transition. I just hit the ground running. I started taking hormones. And then I was like booking my appointment doing this. I've never had a sugar daddy. I've never had someone hate for anything of Mine My parents. I don't come from money background. I did everything on my own. I was going to college at the same time so it was a broke college kids or as paying my way through school on top of all that and I was also doing youtube and everything and I was living in a two bedroom apartment with four roommates and I just was so determined did didn't matter how I did it. Or how hostile? But I really wanted to do it. Differently. I came here meeting the Most Beautiful Trans Women and it release added me that so many trends girls were so beautiful wearing Lubaton out with you know all sorts of guys and being treated. Scotus says they would have to resort to sex work in order to get the money to pay for procedures and although I do not judge anyone I wasn't for it wasn't for me and I I never wanted a man or anyone to say. Oh I paid for that. Were paid for her. So I do some nasty Bahrain with. I'll do some nasty for fear town. I've definitely had some crazy offers in my day of being here and the craziest why not of course the how every ethnic everything starts out. Hunting happens in everything. Nine zero zero six nine it happens. It happens on Santa Monica Boulevard. I was on. We hope I met a guy fast forward. I was in class project on Dubai. Igored out but he was a prince and you know of a certain area and I was talking to this whole time. But he never told me that he was a frenzy which is always asked me to come to Dubai. Always asking I wanna see you got I wanna see you guys offered me a cute little penny two hundred fifteen thousand to come for a week and then it got twisted because his brother also wanted to get involved in offered me seeing them out and out. I denied it by the way turned down. Half a million

5 Underrated Marketing Conferences You Should Attend in 2020 | Ep.
"Welcome to episode of Marketing School. I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel and today we're GonNa talk about five underrated marketing conferences. That you should attend in two thousand twenty and I'll start so the first one is traffic think-tank live so we've talked about this slack group where you know smartest. Seo's marketers in general a content marketers are hanging out. I love the Group. I still check it pretty habitually so they have a conference happening in Miami traffic. Think tank live. I believe it's May sixteenth. Check it out because I think they actually limit the amount of people that attend. I remember trying to get a ticket. I think a year or two ago and I just couldn't make it but traffic thing take live. It's ran by Nick eubanks. I think it's got Ian. Forget the name Super Smart. Seo Ian Matthew Barbie of hotspot nil our the next event that I would recommend that you attend. Then you're probably gonNA be like Neil. This isn't a marketing. Event is actually tech crunch. You have all seen Very few marketers have attended it. I've attended so many times the reason I like it. Is You figure out what's happening in your industry. That's going to disrupt you. And this just those disruptive things are actually easier to market and get traction to than if you critic something from scratch so for that reason you attending it. You'll fargo what's trending. What's new what's GONNA BE POPULAR? And if you jump on the bandwagon literally. It's ten times easier to mark something that's amazing or new and fresh than it is to market something. That's a copycat all right number. Three is baby bath water. They have a lot of different types of events of Croatia. I think doing Italy. They're doing New Orleans as well. It's a good excuse to kind of go to these spots usually want to go to but it's amazing marketers amazing ECOMMERCE SAS PEOPLE. That will be there so it's good to learn from different kind of industries and to be able to do it in somewhere like an amazing spotlight. Croatia. That's icing on the cake. Number Four I love. The Bullet. Row Conference series. If you live in the United States you probably have heard of it but you see some of the topics of the markers in the world there and the reason I love it is those people have to produce the R. Y. Without being guaranteed any money. Just think about that. They're spending their own money because they think they can generate an Roi. And if they don't they lose it on early pay per performance and a lot of observed cash flow issues takes months to get paid out but they have to spend the ad money right away. Bad the reason I would recommend it as those guys are super creative and they figured out how to grow with having a lot of budget constraints so just imagine what you can do. Have you can figure out how to grow faster within your budget constraints and also you can learn at affiliate world all right number five last but not least. This sounds a little counter intuitive but I recommend checking out the Ted Conference if you can. It's not a cheap ticket by the different perspectives. You're getting from the people that are there you have. I think Larry Page from Google walking around you have a lot of Just amazing people there to build relationships with each other and you get different perspectives. But also what you're seeing on stage to you're seeing the most groundbreaking things happening around medicine around artificial intelligence around and you get different perspectives of people coming from all over the world to so to be able to do that and figure out how that applies to your industry trends that are coming or things are happening around the world and in relationships that you build. It's extremely high quality like I remember. I was like a restroom minding my own business and I looked to my left and it is. It's radio right. The the Hedge Fund Guy from Bridgewater got a Rope Principles. So you have amazing people and you can go up to them and and talk to them as like. Oh but eric apply to marketing. It does apply because again a lot of marketing is just taking a lot of things from areas that you see twisting it a little bit and just applying to your business and the networks
"barbie" Discussed on Talk, Tales and Trivia
"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.

O.G. Beauty YouTuber Kandee Johnson Is Ready For Her Comeback Now
"Welcome to breaking beauty so when you start at Youtube. This was over a decade ago. You just stay around that long like ninety and so you were a single mom working as a pro makeup artist in Hollywood. I went back and watched your first video. You don't even see me. You don't even see my face and I had a cold so it doesn't even sound like me the worst video to ever be your video but that's okay. It shows how delusional now nothing has to be perfect. You can have a cold and not even show your face and it can be poor quality. And unless you do that's GonNa longest and so tell us why you decided to get into you to to begin with sure so. I had never really seen youtube before. I knew you went there to see like funny videos. And random. Like people walking into windows and stuff like that But my friend had showed me a girl in the UK. Lauren Luke Panacea eighty-one her username and she was doing makeup tutorials just in her bedroom and you could hear a dog snoring in the background and I was like I feel. She's my friend. She's teaching. Step-by-step things I just fell in love with her and I thought. Oh my gosh all the years where people have sat in my makeup chair saying I wish I knew how to put makeup on. I wish you could teach me. I can teach them. I could teach mama living bathroom wherever and I thought I'll be the. Us version of Lauren. Luke and then once I watched youtube for like a few minutes more I realize there was like a couple of other a couple and I mean like maybe there were seven of us total doing beauty videos back then but very very few so I was just excited to take my knowledge of makeup artists and teach people the basics like how I got into make it was. I wanted to make people feel good. It's the feeling that you'd see in somebody's face when for the first time they looked in the mirror and a woman would say. I never thought I looked beautiful for the first time. I think I actually looked beautiful and right then when I was in beauty school I was like I don't want to do here anymore. I just wanted to make up. I just WanNa make women feel failing feeling beautiful. Yeah and you could share it with so many more people at one each other countries around the world. Yeah Yeah it's amazing. I feel like you became really famous for your transformation videos. Oh yeah transform yourself into anyone who is unbelievable when it's gone and I saw also the one where you transform Kim Kardashian Princess Jasmine it was like Y- identical and your Barbie Video. It's your second most popular thirty four million views. It's crazy because I honestly didn't like that video I still to this day. Cringe looking at the. How imperfect the eyelashes are. But I was like. It's right before Halloween. I should put up that dumb video. Even though I don't like the Barbie one for one less costume look and I put it up and normally I'll sit by the computer for hours after upload commenting back to people and I don't even like this video. I don't even want to hear what people have to say. I left. I come back an hour later. I looked at my instagram and I was like. Oh my gosh. Something's wrong with instagram's broken. I got twenty thousand followers in an hour. I'm like something's wrong. Wow and then I looked in the comments and people are like. Oh my gosh. Your video was posted by it would did. The list just went on and on and on like how people saw the video everywhere. Good Morning America. Just every news outlet I was like Oh I hate those eyelashes. That's all I could think about. I guess it's just the power of Barbie as an icon as well right. Oh yeah I mean everybody knows a Barbie doll not gonNA know a certain? Tv Show right movie actress. But I mean you can't get too much more economic than Barbie. Yeah whatever country. Whatever language they know of. Arias Oh true and then I feel like for your brand. Your personal brand is well. You've described your channel as the happiest place on Youtube and it's almost like a daytime. Tv host like. Do you feel pressured to show up happy every day. Like or have you evolved it I mean I think I've always wanted to be a role model and inspiration for people and so I felt like if I can. You know the world is a pretty negative and sad place everybody's dealing with problems and heartache and difficult situation so it was my honor that I could people would right. Oh you know whether they were diagnosed with cancer or they have a child is sick or they just lost a loved one saying for at least fifteen minutes. When I watch your video I can take a break and so it fell more pressure when I had the two youtube channels and I was writing to blogs a day. And you know people right. I don't know what I would do without reading your blog every day. So that compelled and propelled me to continually right to the point of where it was. You know sleeping two hours a night for years on end is not healthy and missing out on a lot of things because I had to be writing or editing or getting photos ready so it's like okay. I need to just one platform. That can really help people on. Yeah but that's my greatest. Joy is yeah hearing those kind of things from people. Yeah and that's naturally your personality too. I mean I just met very very clear. That's who you are if you So all that being said you took a hiatus last year and there weren't any youtube videos in nineteen so tells about that. It was so crazy because the year prior I hit. Also just not uploaded very much but it was just this pace for this many years in the year before it was insane. I was traveling two to three times a week at the airport. Not Sleeping editing hosting things do it was so much stuff and then on top of it. I lost a larger portion of family members in a in a year. It was just a lot of difficult. Things hit me all at once and emotionally physically. I wasn't able to keep up and part of me felt like I don't belong in what the Youtube space had become. You know very different than when I started. You know yeah. It was humble beginnings back that any video. People put up like all drill. I love it. And and then youtube come very very overproduced vary it looks like many. Tv shows everywhere. I'm still a team of me like me. Editing me lighting me setting up the camera it. It just felt like it was a different space for me. Yeah but thankfully when I upload my video so many people were just writing the most amazing comments. Yeah just saying like No. This is what we want youtube to be again. This is what we need. You know showing community again so I was like. I do want to be a shining difference in space no matter how it changes. Yeah yeah so what we're talking about. Is that three weeks ago. You you posted your first video and over a year. Yeah and it was called Mama's back yeah and And you express some of those feelings about not necessarily feeling like you fit in to the beauty. Yeah influence or crowd. Can you expand on that? Yeah when I started. It was very different. The community was so supportive and it was a bunch of people that just love makeup. You know it was just like oh we found a place everybody loves make beauty can gather here and then it kind of has become a different space where I was like. I don't know if if that's what what people would I thought people followed me for is still what would even be popular on Youtube or still be interesting. You know everything changed so quickly and at the core I just I know no matter what changes people still want to encourage inspired and loved. And you know if you know lighting lipstick on fire while you apply. It is a trend. I don't WanNa do it? You know I wanNA stick to what I love teaching people. I've always loved teaching. People love inspiring people. I love encouraging them or showing new cool things. That is what I love. Yeah the other the the drama that has now become a huge part of the duty community. Just just makes me sad. You know it's like this is not what we're here for. People were focusing on all the negativity. And it's mostly like you love Color Soda you friends. I WANNA bring that part back and right. Maybe be a difference to tell people like this doesn't need to be what you focus

Friday or yes. I was one of those a Thursday night at midnight. Yes I ordered it within like five minutes to like. Yeah they're like you'll get up one day and an extra load up Saturday so I had a good experience very housed them but I was GONNA go pick it up at My problem maybe as I said I'll get it at the Santa Rosa store and you live in New York I think Massachusetts Massachusetts okay I think what they said was San Francisco La New York New York the big city Atlanta a few have like five.

You have US tussle It is it's really got me to rethink technology in terms of phones and it's not all perfect right like if you opening and closing it is definitely an extra step and if you're always putting your phone on your pocket there's that trade off and that's real. It does a little bit more delicate or at least treating more delicate than I probably. Would you know somebody yes?

It's still too early. You know this question like is it worth it. Come on fourteen hundred dollars. Most people it's not going to be worth it but I it really is transformative. I hate to be cliche. But it really does make you rethink You know what phones devices can

We broke up around April ish but had already applied to this summer camp as a counselor and I needed a reference so I listed her as a reference and. She told me later that they call her back way. This was supposed break-up post break up. I just still had her listed as a reference because we had worked previously in a tutoring GIG and they called her up and to give me a reference. Did you get the job? I did not get the job. What if this was a bad reference it really I mean led by Ghazi Bygones?

Are you OK leaving our beloved baby boy cat in the hands of your ex and I was like no no no no? It's fine. The sex loves cats even more than I love cats as so it'll be fine and it was very sweet? Hi My name is mark. He's nil and I am an engineer. One of my ex girlfriends. We was on the way to be broken up and she helped me graduate high school. The only consider that Nice. It was just really just kind of like whatever that's not whatever not finishing high school. I mean if you if you ask me you know what I'm saying. I mean. She helped because she felt because she helped me be in the position. Not Finish. Who so it's like but it was a while situation so I was in high. School was a wild boy. Wasn't doing really well my senior year and my girlfriend at the time we was on our way to break it up or whatever but because she was going to go to college in North Carolina and we kind of knew that that was kind of but she helped me like get my papers done lake turning all my papers and pass my test and stuff and we broke up. The rest is history. My Name's Maria Garcia and I'm the senior editor of the artery which is debut arts and culture team so Maria we want to know what is the nicest thing your ex has done for you This person who I dated took care of my childhood barbies in my childhood Barbie furniture for over a year in his storage the free of charge and every month would send me like the nicest gentle reminders. It wasn't actually about the barbies itself. It was about all of the handmade furniture that went with the barbies so growing up. We were working class. I love barbies but my parents couldn't afford the cool Barbie accessories so my mom would like get Styrofoam or like leftover cardboard and she would shape them into like couches and it's it sounds really makeshift describing them. But they were really beautiful and then she would go to the fabric store and like buy fabric and make Barbie furniture. You know the barbies represented the lengths that my mother would go to to lake. Provide me with a beautiful childhood. Even though we didn't have a whole lot of money so I logged these homemade toys from apartment to apartment until I moved with my ex and then we store them in his garage even when I had like nothing to give and return to him right that it wasn't like a exchange like he was just like he cared about me as a human being he saw he was like okay. She once was a child who really cared for these things and even though I'm not with her I am going to be a good steward of this thing that I know to. Her core is really meaningful to her.

The Business Behind The Color Of The Year
"Today's indicator is Nineteen Dash Forty fifty. Two that is the exact shade of Pantheon's official color of this year classic blue and it had a lot of competition. Pantalone has identified more than twenty three hundred colors. It print them out on its famous color chips in a factory in New Jersey. Pretty the people that work there have special vision tests that ensure their ability to expertly distinguish subtle differences in shade and tone. Laurie pressman is is the vice president of the Pan Tone Color Institute. She's worked there for twenty years. She's been there basically since Pinto unsorted picking out. Its colors at the year. She is a bona fide color expert. So I- astor astor. Radio and color is a color. I asked her to describe classic blue to somebody who could not see it so when we think about classic Blue Tanto One thousand nine hundred fifty two classic blue. If you think about the sky at dusk think about a blue that speaks to the end of the day. It has that that reassuring qualities that we associate with blue. The dependability the stability. Because it's something that we see every day and yet there's a little bit more color depth to it. There's a little bit of a a red undertone but please don't mistake this classic shade to be that Cardigan sweater or that university jacket. Because it's more more modern I was just GonNa say like Navy blue. Yeah I was just GonNa say that. That's a fascinating. Look into the mind of a color expert right. I mean I don't know anything about color As you know card if I were like black and gray basically every day I try to blend in with the pavement but as I was looking at this colored there was something striking about even to my untutored eye. And that was that you know the colors for the last few years have been very vibrant and lively and this one just isn't last caller was called living coral bright and lively In two thousand eighteen there was pretty lavender color your before that was this kind of Kermit. The Frog Green and then they came out with classic blue and I wanted to ask ask her about it because it just looked so kinda Blah yeah this blues like it doesn't seem that young to me. It seems a little Lake Doc. It's the color of my bank card. Now see okay and I say you have to go back to the red. And that's the really interesting I would say taint or undertone or influence to this color so I don't think of it as corporate you know this is not your IBM blue. That's not what this is. This is a really fresh and more vibrant blue so it has all those great things that we love about the blues. The reassurance the calm that we're looking for the confidence inspiring us to connect at the same time. There's an energy I don't know it looks like a bank card to me. Here's here's a sample of the color which Panta sent me so this is printed out on their printers and I am now putting my chase bank card right on top of it. And they're close. I think the chase bank blue is slightly darker but other than that distinct cards more vibrant. I think you're right and it's more metallic I don't know honestly when you I know. Pan Tone has turned and color precision into this multi million dollar business companies from all over the world in all kinds of industries. Actually pay pan tone to help them choose colors for their logos and their spring bring lines and their packaging and their products. Barbie Victoria's secret tiffany schweppes. They have all worked with Pan Tone to develop their signature color color. The year is supposed to be more of a cultural statement though. Panton collects data from all over the world to see what colors are being used and tries to think about why certain colors are becoming more popular. What what are you looking to to get that? It's really product what we're seeing in movies. It's art you know it. All the different materials we see coming through do all the different Focus on different travel destinations and once the color set everybody pays attention. That's according to Regina Blah's check. She is a professor of business history at the University of Leeds. And she's the author of the Color Revolution. She says hand tones color of the year becomes kind of celebrity within the industry. I think antone has made a color into a celebrity for this for this year. I think I think that's what it's about and much like celebrity. Classic blue has some high profile haters a lot of articles of come out saying Classic Lewis Boring and Corporate Regina's. Yes it is and it was really a brilliant choice my lean. Okay okay so I am so interested here because to me it just looks like my bank card like it is. That's what caught your bank card and I think that's the whole point is it. Looks like your bank card. It looks like the IBM I b. m. logo it looks like the binders that are lining up here in my office. It's very safe very safe and very secure and very very familiar. And I think what they're suggesting is that in this era of turmoil that we need to have there is a desire an underlying desire to move towards some stability and that Bankcard blue suggests that stability and it is bankcard blue that will be featured in a million million product meetings all over the world as clothing companies home decor companies carmakers hotels electronics makers and countless other businesses. Consider it in their buying decisions. Any business today Who is concerned with producing products for the consumer is concerned with with the latest color trends? If you're an Taylor or banana republics you WANNA be on trends you WANNA follow the trend and so and and what do you think uh of classic blood you like it. I think it's an interesting color. I like blue. I wear blue and green and pink. Because I'm blonde so works for me. Oh interesting saying okay Do you buy stuff and classic blue. I just bought a classic Blue Blazer. So I'm all set you did is it. And by the way Cardiff Panton does not just consider classic blue a color. It's a whole experience in ambience. They sent a box of like a handled handled. It's like the smell of classic blue and some Jelly that's the taste of classic blue and was also blue and grows Sorry and the feel of classical and they also have the sound of classic blue. It's so here is the song that is supposed to be the sound of classic blue

I've never been a teacher's pet in my life. I was very passionate the Senate right now and then eventually. Our teacher paired us together to do a scene. We went to a public school. Miami Michael Crop Michael Crock. Hey Paula Highschool Miami right. No North Miami. Yeah Agnew Program. Oh Wow back then Ah which is now. It's the art was very strong in south Florida. Yeah but anyways then she pairs for seen together and she came over my house and she saw that. I still play with barbies. What do you mean by Plato Barbie? Because there's different playable barbies player barbies like I have up dressed up and their styles. Silence there because you know like sure like I had those two like set up my really barbies. Anything it's like on all like I had my my parents for Christmas. I would always get. I mean something glow method. I would bring me like one of the collectible ones and like if there wasn't athletic one that came out that year like basketball players for us off bar. Whatever I would get that one but I also get the big holiday one representation matters I listen okay let me ask you this let me ask you this? How percentage wise how many blond barbies to ethnic boy move? Actually my mom would get me as many tanned. She could embargo. Yeah because she would be laser. Yeah that was a friend. Kelly is Barbie's friend Barbie's friend of Brown's CARAMEL girl. Okay yeah well yeah. I don't know I would always I would also like I. I mean Matt all types of had blocked Barbie Not Not why would they let the Tan. And then I I mean I did have a lot of like blond barbies because that's just what I wanna hear one.

Shoppers expected to spend $730 billion this season
"Shoppers are expected to spend even more money this year than they did last year. The National Retail Federation predicts that over the holiday shopping seasons of through Christmas Americans. We'll spend around seven hundred and thirty billion dollars. That's with a B. A lot of that will still happen at physical stores but a survey from pricewaterhousecoopers. WBZ for the first time this year found that the majority of shoppers are saying they plan to do most of their holiday shopping online like Lou rather than in stores and that's actually really one of the reasons why to me and a lot of retail watchers one of the biggest themes this year. Is this slow. Change of the meaning of black Friday is beginning to disappear or is it just going join online. Well we have to clear. That still is the busiest shopping day of the year for most stores but for the past two years the number of people oh heading to stores Ford. Those doorbuster deals has inched lower. Shoppers are now armed with smartphones. They can do instant price checks on. What's going on at other your stores? Is it worth standing in line. Here I talked to Peter fader professor at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and he says more stores are also realizing that maybe the people who only show up one weekend November are not the best customers and so they're broadening their appeal with really strong online discounts and sales on so many days of the year including more made up shopping holidays like cyber Monday this coming Monday or prime day and this year also because the calendar gave us a super late Thanksgiving there fewer days between now and Christmas some stores started offering black Friday sales like weeks earlier back in October and and all this is washing out that meaning of black Friday. It's still huge but maybe not the focal point of Holiday Shopping Alina. What's going to make parents desperate this year? Your people stand in line. What's GonNa be big well? Overall the top sellers are close and gift cards. But then as you're alluding to the toys are huge. Actually my colleague. Dr Is Rafi. Spent Black Friday. The iconic toys R. US. You may remember. The company went bankrupt in twenty seventeen but a former executive is trying to bring back starting with two locations. The first one in New Jersey opened on black Friday and they are Darius spoke to shopper. Monica Mallon it's been kind of a staple growing up so so we've been doing black Friday on toys for many years up until they closed their doors so excited to see come back and as far as the hottest toys of the season. Go the classics like legos and barbies. Hot Wheels American girl dolls. They're still at the top of the list for many shoppers but Internet sales tracked by analytics. Showed that so far this week online. Fine the biggest sellers are yellow surprise dolls and pretty much anything related to the movie frozen to Shows Fan at all off coming to a shelf near you. NPR's Lena Shell thanks so much. Thank you
New York Icons: The Bell Jar
"It's good to meet you as Clark is the author of the forthcoming nine hundred page biography of Platt I meet up with her and we take a look at the magazine Plath oversaw that summer you know what struck me the first time I looked through this was the number of ads you just can't quite believe how many ads are in this Zine it's almost page after page and of course fashion spreads to fashion magazine so in a back room of the New York Public Library where flipping through a copy of the magazine Clark points out one ad in particular it's for shape wear that's also sportswear so this Janssen

you in it Mademoiselle had become interested in her after a story she had submitted a year earlier one it's national fiction contest but Clark says that Platt Struggle old in her role as managing editor she had wanted to be fiction editor at just nineteen years old plath had already published poems and won awards Mademoiselle published some of the top writers of its day Dylan Thomas Tennessee Williams Truman capote but instead of selecting editing short stories plan throats fashioned blurbs including one praising the versatility of sweaters I think plath found her self suddenly embedded in this fashion and beauty industry and she's become part of this vast propaganda machine that woman's women into objects and she wanted to be the subject of her own life she didn't want to be the objective someone else's life so I think that contributed to her sense of disillusion that summer suddenly it was her job to kind of objectify women bio green they were promoting it for fall title green with black bio green white bio green with Nio green it's kissing cousin fashion blurb silver and full of nothing sent up there fishy bubbles in my brain they surfaced with a hollow pop but it

it had just started to come up in the nineteen fifties when women who've done the whole rosie the riveter thing during the war were now expected to be homemade occurs again even though many thrived in the workforce and developed real professional aspirations it was an ongoing discussion within society about whether women could do three things at once dying Johnson got married one month after the

minister knowing way that after I had children I would feel differently I wouldn't want to write poems anymore so I began to think maybe it was true that when you were married and had children it was like being brainwashed and afterward you went numb as a slave in some private totalitarian state a few years later plath thought she found a man who would not brainwash her as a graduate student at Cambridge she met fellow poets Ted Hughes who she married in Nineteen fifty sex both enjoyed growing reputations as writers when they were interviewed by the BBC's Owen Leeming in nineteen sixty one

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.

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.
