Federal Judge Orders Oregon State Prisons to Vaccinate Inmates
"Ruled that the state of Oregon must immediately start offering the covert 19 vaccine all prison inmates even ahead of the elderly in Oregon. The inmates next week. We'll start getting the vaccine they will have 10,000 inmates eligible to be vaccinated next week based on the order of this federal judge, who said the constitutional rights of prison inmates We're being violated because they were not included in the very first round of vaccinations. Um, I don't think the Constitution says if you're Imprisoned that you get the first round of vaccines. There's so many Americans outside of prison that aren't getting the first round of vaccines and that doesn't alienate our civil rights over our constitutional rights Well, the federal judge said. Our constitutional rights are not suspended during a crisis. And during these times, we have to remain vigilant and protect the rights of the powerless that includes prison inmates. I disagree with this. I don't have a problem with if there are inmates in there that meet the criteria that we've set out as the most vulnerable the you know, 65 above the medical conditions again. It's I think that's how you go those that are most at risk to get Cove it severely that it could lead to their death are the ones that should be first in line. Yeah. In Oregon. They've only started with people 80 and older. And medical people, so they're not even to the point where people 65 older who were outside of the prisons are getting it. Heather Bernhardt has a fiancee who is in prison. He is convicted and doing his sentence. And she says, This is great news. I'm overjoyed to hear that he's going to get his vaccines for more headaches. He did have a couple scary nights where he was, you know, struggling to breathe a little bit. I'm happy, and I think it's a step in the right direction. But I don't trust you see as far as I can for him right now. She doesn't trust the Department of Corrections as far as she can throw them. So guys convicted and sentenced to prison child rapists, rapists, murderers, you name it all of them Vaccine before your grand Nina. Yes. Immediately, According to this, federal judge,
Sarah Chalke Talks Rick & Morty
"About what a dream career in acting might be. Sarah Chalke has sort of had it. She's been on some of the best love TV shows of all time, Roseanne. Scrubs How I met your mother. Not too shabby, right? But you know things must be slowing down during the pandemic for actors. Well, not for Sarah. Now she's part of the one of the most popular shows during this pandemic, the animated series Rick and Morty, where she does the voice of Beth Sanchez. I had the chance to talk with Sarah Chalke out in Vancouver, British Columbia last year after season four of the show rap. We talk from her home, NBC. Don't worry, I wasn't NBC hears our conversation. Hi, Sarah. How are you? Hey, I'm great. Nice to talk to you. Where are you? I'm in British Columbia and s O feel like you'd be here. You're still able to work right? You're on Rick and Morty. It's animated show. Are you still able to do voices? Yes, I'm I've been recording three cartoons up here, and it's been such an interesting adventure to find like the most acoustically positive sound And really, that's like a dead sense. You have to find somewhere small and s O. I started out in the lower bunk bed surrounded by every do they and pillow that was available to me and then try taking the kids play tent and duct taping seven moving blankets around it. Um and then you know you're in this kind of like dark space. And then I take like make a stack with like a thing of poker chips and Harry Potter books and then bounced the microphone on top and hope for the best. And I also say that like Beth on Rick and Morty Is not like a A super kid friendly cartoon character like No. Are you worried about your kids here in here and what's going on with mom in the room? So what if he like up and you know you're recording off campus in a sound contained sound booth? Um, so yeah, yeah, that's also been part of this figure out a way to not only keep the dogs from barking, um, and hearing birds, but also, uh, the Children not hearing you. So it's an interesting um Dynamic. They get to have some really loud. Screen time, huh? Get they get to watch their iPad as loud as they want so that mom could say rated r things into a microphone in the bunk bed. Totally. I mean, I was already worried about like my daughter who's three going to preschool and like she loves we have all the Rick and Morty like stuffed animals, and plus, she's and so she'll play with them. If you like, mister Q. B Butthole. Yeah, I don't know how that's gonna go over playing that with other Children. It's been really amazing to see how big Rick and Morty has become, like I remember when it was sort of like this little niche. Animated chauffeur for nerds and for You know, for people who like really kind of sophisticated comedy, and then it just becomes this worldwide phenomenon. And it made me think about your character, Beth. So for people who haven't seen the show, can you tell me who Beth was when you started and sort of who she's become, as the serious has gone on. Yes. Oh, so she's the sort of mother of the family. Um, Rick and Morty is the grandfather of the grandson. And you think you're gonna watch this grandfather grandson? Go on these like wild sci fi adventures. But what it ends up going into is like these real kind of rough family dynamics and on day kind of You know, not just this sci fi cartoon but asking these existential questions like if life is meaningless, and there are infinite universes, does anything really matter? So that's rickon Gordy in general, and then the best starting out kind of that, you know, as the Matriarch of the family and playing the mom and then over time, And as the seasons went on, you find out how much she is like her dad and the fact that when she was little, he had to build her a secret world. Because she was making whips to make people like her and mind control hair clips. As a young girl. You find out that she is kind of a lot like her dad, and and then and then, as the seasons go on. She wants to either stay or leave, And we don't know if she's a clone or not a clone, and that's been super fun to play kind of death. And then this alternate best as well. Space that it's funny like it. Z must be a challenge to sort of play your character and also sort of more sinister. We're like, deceptive version of your character. But it's all the same voice like You're not changing too much, you know. Yeah, Totally, totally. It's been. It's been super fun, and obviously we didn't know at any point that that was coming like we just get the scripts as we get them. We have no knowledge of. You know what's happening down the road in the future, so that part's so fun. I mean, to see like a Rick and Morty script in My Inbox is one of my favorite things because the minds of Justin Royal and and Dan Harmon are Unbelievable. There. So the scripture so smart and so funny and so wild. I love them. It's the number to show in all of North America like we were looking at in the US anyway. We were looking at the survey was conducted in the US to see what TV shows were being binge the most during the pandemic. So number one friends. Friends is number one. Right? Yes, I love it. I'm a big friends fan. And then sort of like the anti friends Rick and Morty is is not know that his number two in some states record is number one. What do you make of it? What do you make of it that during the pandemic, it's gotten even more successful. That's really cool. I didn't know that. I think I think people want to laugh and people want to escape into another world. And I think that it's a You know, a time for For a real need for for comedy, and the growth of It has been interesting to watch kind of through the eyes of comic con over the years like we would go to comic con You're one. It hasn't been released yet. So all the questions were to Dan Harmon about community and then the next year, it was like a couple of weeks walking around and then the next It was like a sea of Mr Poopy bottles and bricks and all these different characters was kind of cool. I get to see how it's how it's growing, but I'm glad it's bringing people less. Is it this time? Is it ever a bit intense? Like I know that I know that Even Dan and Justin, the folks behind the show have had to come out and talk to the fans of the show. Because they could be intense. They could be a bit toxic. That could be a bit sort of awful. Now when we're talking about a pretty small Group of fans of the show, but I can't imagine what that's like to be sort of in it to be in in the show, with all that's going on. Yeah, it is. It is wild. The degree to which you know I can't watch all the little pieces and I am you know, I think that That, you know, I don't. I don't actually read a ton of those, uh, those sites and comments, but I think it's It's cool how passionate people are about it. It reminds me because when you started, I think the first way we all knew you was when you were on when you were on Roseanne and you were brought in court famously, is second Becky. Like one of the biggest shows of the nineties, You replaced the original actress who played the daughter Becky, until the original Becky came back again. From what? I understand you were in high school in Canada, and then it got that gig. Yeah, it was crazy. I was 16 when I auditioned and I I was living in Vancouver and working on a couple things that were filming up here, but really haven't done anything under very much. And and, uh, got this audition and put myself on tape. And, um, I think we even like Mailed a VHS tape, You know, down to the states, and they called and said, We're gonna fly you down for an audition on day were seven of us and all the others were like 21 living in L. A actresses and all of us were doing this scene with Glenn Quinn. Who played Mark back his husband and the whole scene was like making out. You're making out with him. And you're like, you know, get job. The gas station, baby. Come and get it down to the gas station, baby. Come here. That was the same like there's this 24 year old, handsome Irish actor. How am I gonna remember one line and they said we'll let you know within a week. And then, a week later, they called back and said, Okay, come back tomorrow and do a scene with Roseanne and was like on the infamous coach on the set, and they were calling out. You know, camera numbers and having a laugh track and seeing if you could kind of adjust to those elements, and then they called and said, You got it. And Remember going to a party that night and telling a couple people and it just sounded so crazy. Sounded crazy. Yeah. Sounded crazy that you were in. You were in high school, and you were telling people having to be on the number one sitcom in the world. They would have been right to be like They're not. You're not like taking over for someone else like they're gonna not have like It just sounded insane. And we already had, like great seven. We already had, like someone like lied about being on the mini pops. Remember the many pox which were so amazing? I don't I don't know. The minibar like a Canadian band was like a Canadian kids. And you would like You know they would sing covers, and they were dressed these cool eighties clothes and they were amazing and someone in our schools that they were going to be in the mini pops. That wasn't true. So all the sudden I felt this feeling of like I'm lying about being in many parts, and then so then I kind of spread it on our school pretty quick. And then they called me back on Monday morning, and they said We're having cold feet about replacing Becky. So we don't know if we're gonna do it. We will do will pick you if we do it, but we're gonna put you on hold for four months. We're going to tell you in September just got this is jumping. You couldn't be a Minnie Bob situation, right? You're gonna have to go back to all of them ago. No, no, they change their mind like all you have Sara? Sure they did Change your mind. And then you then you find out Yeah. And then s O was my great 12 year and, um And I would go back and forth because they would shoot two or three weeks on one week off. So we would shoot Monday to Thursday. I would get on a plane first thing Friday morning and be at school in Canada on Friday afternoon and then and then fly back Sunday night or stay home for a week if we had a week off and kind of commuting back and forth I'm really interested in people like you who have On gun traditional first big gig like I was talking to Linda Cardellini the other day who played Lindsay on Freaks and geeks, Right? And you know, so there you go. She's her big break. Is this show that considered to be the greatest show of all time and then gets canceled after one season and I said, You know, what does that do for you for the rest of your career, and similarly for you your first Big is to replace beloved Actor. In a show that is the number one show on that, and it was it was controversial. When it happened, it was people couldn't believe that it was happening. And then I wonder if that taught you anything in your career going forward, whether it had hardened to you or heart And you do you think it did something to you? I think both of those things I think, you know, I mean, because Yeah, came. She would least he was Becky from seasons 1 to 5. I was six and seven. She came back for the beginning of eight. And then I came back for the rest of eight. And for nine. And so it was definitely, you know. As a kid. Um, it's you know, it's confusing and hard when they brought her back, and then they called this. Okay. Now, will you come back? And and so that piece, I think, um Was the challenging part of it for sure, And the other piece that was challenging was just going from complete obscurity to going on the number one show, and then you're at that age where gynecology just kind of wanna blend of a sudden that piece of it was it was hard, but they incredible part was the obvious, unbelievable gift of working with John Goodman and Laurie Metcalf and Roseanne and Sara Gilbert and Johnny Galecki and Sandra Bernhardt. And I mean it was It was crazy. It was like stepping into having not really worked out much to working with this top, unbelievably talented comedians and just watching them. Work and what They would do with a script from a Monday morning table read Till Thursday night Tape night. It was such a huge learning experience and so so interesting and obviously You know, open so many doors for me. I mean, I was Like my entire diamonds, girls. My nickname was second package would be like we got second back in the seventies. Really Good. Yeah. Yeah,

Startup Streamer Quibi Quits
"A huge Hollywood experiment ended its life in a way that seems somehow fitting qube accompany designed to bring miniature Netflix's quality shows to your smartphone call. It quits earlier this month like it's programs which were no longer than ten minutes apiece. quickies vary life was itself short only about six months long the infant media company hit attracted almost two billion dollars from investors about one hundred, fifty, million dollars in advertising and some big name actors and directors. As a result quibbles dramatic closure has spawned no end of speculative criticism about what the startup did wrong and whether it's leaders Hollywood powerhouse, Jeffrey Katzenberg and former HP. CEO Meg Whitman did anything right? In case you haven't heard of it. The original idea behind Qube was to make high quality programs that were short enough to watch from start to finish. While waiting to do something else say riding the subway were standing at checkout line. These wouldn't be user generated youtube like videos but what qube envisioned as the quote next generation of storytelling dramas comedies a non-fiction programs cut into quick bites the origin of the company's name you get the idea. QUBE had the bad luck to launch during the pandemic that meant the service designed explicitly for people out and about debuted when people were in definitely not out and about position as another streamer. But Not at first on your TV quickly did what most streamers and new apps do when it launched in early April it offered a ninety day free trial about a million and a half people signed up and presumably began watching quickies original shows thrillers like. Wireless about a drunk man caught in a New Year's Eve snowstorm free Ray Sean drama about a black man accused of killing a police officer and last looks a series about scandals in the fashion world. As I said earlier at launch, you can only watch on a smartphone despite the fact that most viewers were quarantined in their homes with perfectly usable TV's at their disposal. It took a few more months for quick to make the TV leap. The question back in May and June was how many of those initial free viewers would convert to paying customers quickies price was high five month with ads were eight dollars without them as the verge points out apple TV plus costs four, ninety, nine a month worse quickies higher prices more expensive than Disney plus. The answer on those conversions was clear. Qube didn't get anywhere near enough money or viewers, and with that dearth viewers, some advertisers threatened to canceled on October Twenty Second Katzenberg Whitman published an open letter on medium announcing queries collapse. The founders laid some of the blame on Covid nineteen but not all in addition to timing they said, another likely reason could be. That the idea itself wasn't strong enough to justify a standalone streaming service. Indeed. A great deal of the criticism says exactly that the format itself was flawed from the start ten minutes may have been far too long for some content and far too short for others. A sort of nether world that works for user generated youtube content, but not for expensive productions that aspire to be the next Netflix. As one example, the Guardian reporter. Jack Bernhardt commended free ratio on actors Steffan Jones Laurence Fishburne an emmy winner. Jasmine Safest Jones for spectacular performances in powerful production. But he added quote it feels almost offensive to everyone involved that I can only watch it on tiny phone screen. Furthermore, he said it should have been a two hour film not fifteen quick bites. The company is exploring selling the rights to some content screenwriters and producers with shows underdevelopment or left to try to sell them elsewhere a tough sell given that most media companies can't use five or ten minute episodes. is returning about three hundred, fifty million dollars to investors and giving severance to two hundred employees. The Wall Street Journal reports, Katzenberg and Whitman's letter puts quickies. Of the entire very busy streaming media ecosystem the executives would never have imagined launching during a pandemic they said, but they admitted other businesses have faced these unprecedented challenges and have found their way through it.

Paulette. Jordan people must know that your voice matters and your vote is going to be critical in this election. So when you don't participate, you have to ask yourself that when you don't vote. You were letting other people speak for you. And they may not hold sacred what you hold sacred. The last thing we want in this election to look back with regret that we didn't do enough or children, and our children's future is in the next generation. So we have to dig deep to our roots and fight like there's no tomorrow beakers touched on key issues to Indian country including the environment and empowering Young People Democratic National Committee Native American Caucus, Chair, Ryan Ramirez topped backing Joe Biden, and Kamala.

My ask for you is to go out and remember all of our family members before that didn't have the right to the didn't have the opportunity that we do here. Today we have the opportunity to completely changed the trajectory for us as native people in I. Ask that you get out there you do your port, you get your friends you get your.

There's no vaccine. Can't just get shot for this, but those are the things that have worked while businesses on the reservation are starting to reopen.

"Let's say it's just a user registering, right. So there's like any male field and well, we don't have passwords, but there's an email field. So. We're going to pull that out of payload and then pass it onto a database model. It's going to create the actual record, but the code, the takes the incoming API request apart and passes it along to the deeper parts is just completely untested. There's no tests around it, and the reason is that there's almost never a conditional in there. So as long as the structure of the data coming in as correct, which we know through a combination of static types and IOT dynamic validation. then. There's I mean I'm sure something could go wrong, but there's almost nothing that could go wrong and I believe it is true that we have never had a runtime failure due to that code. It's untested. was written by Gary Bernhardt Insta-. Had, time failures. Question. S. thing. Is that basically just like a way to. Do. Type scripts, normal sort of like development. level type checking, but at run time because as far as I understand, it, correct me if I'm wrong. But like type script doesn't actually do any type checking in like your production builds, right? Like all that stuff is stripped out. It's just like during development that you kind of catch all end like I compile time. Obviously Yup Yup, that's right So type script is erasing compiler, which means that it does not be compiled output code contains. No. the compiled output code contains no type information or anything. It's all just deleted. So it is not checking types at runtime, and even if you wanted to, you wouldn't be able to, which is actually. A major downside of type scripted and they did it for reasons, but it is it makes difficult to do this kind of runtime validation because a type information isn't present. So. Is An extremely clever solution to this problem where? Instead of defining the types as easing type script, spill, built-in type, syntax, you define them using this little DSL. Basically is like its own thing, and then you can extract the the the static type type from that. So you can write the definition once and it gives you a runtime validation for the data and also allows you to extract the static types, crypt type So then you can you can. Can, validate, incoming API requests at runtime. So if an attacker is trying to post something invalid, you can catch that. But then as soon as Iot says, yes, this matches the Schema. Then you can trust the static types. So let's you bring a untrusted or unknown outside data into the world of trusted static types where you no longer need to do any kind of validation once it's inside of your system. Does that answer? Yeah. Is it like a Microsoft project or is it just like a community project? No, it was. It was written. By I, believe one person who still maintains it. whose. Name, I've forgotten but. Yet it's not a Microsoft, well Microsoft. And the type. Script team. Their position is. We don't. We don't type data in the compiled output and we never will, which is one of the few things I think they have made a mistake on in the design of the language because it has forced the community to come up with these solutions that work, but like Iot, US is not. It's it's so clever and it's very well implemented, but it is not..

It doesn't mean even path coverage path coverage means like let's say you have a function with two with a conditional with two sides and an els, and then after that on related to the second conditional with two sides, you have four paths to that function because you can take either side of the first conditional on either side of the second. So. Even covering all the paths isn't sufficient because the data might vary in weird ways that 'cause you might, for example, <hes>, you never thought to test for when some arrays empty and you're indexing until you're getting an undefined out your test never tested that.

That's all of that was supposing perfect test coverage. You still have these problems that are based on run time data.

Don't want to write I, don't want to one. Hundred Percent Path Coverage, I? Don't even want achieve one hundred percent line coverage. So an execute programs code base. The ratio of test code to should've written the actual number down, but it's something like <hes> maybe four to one production code test code is. That is that feels like a lot more production code to TESCO than what I remember seeing like the destroyer software screen casts and stuff. Like Ruby and rails stuff. Yeah, and it's a lot. It's a lot more production to test than in the destroy all software code base as well because in Ruby and like I have to. Constantly. Protect myself from from <hes> mistakes. and.

All of that is like just paranoid testing around because if any of that ever goes wrong, it's going to get baked into the database and it's you know it's GonNa be there forever. But for example, our reactor components. Strictly speaking we have zero tests around the entire react. And that's there are a few points that are actually tested, but they're kind of factored out like <hes> reducer, kind of stuff like the actual. Component testing.

We're talking about leading ladies women who dazzled on and off the small and large screens with their dramatic and comedic skills. Today we're talking about the most famous stage actress at the nineteen, th century and the first international stage star. Her unusual persona divided critics captured the adoration of fans around the world. Let's talk about Sarah, Bernhardt. Sarah Bernhardt was born Henriette Rouge jean-bernard in late, October of eighteen, forty, four in Paris France. Her mother was a Dutch courtesan for rich clients in the city, and her father's identity is unknown. Sarah spent much of her childhood in either a French boarding or a convent to stay out of her mother's way. Sarah was a stubborn child, and initially insisted she wanted to be a nun. Nevertheless one of Sarah's Mother's lovers arranged for Sarah to enter a school of acting called the Paris conservatory. She was sixteen years old. They're Sarah was not considered particularly talented. The feelings of mediocrity were mutual. Sarah didn't particularly care for the schools teaching methods. Eighteen sixty two Sarah left and joined the national. Theatre known as the Comedy Francaise. After just one year her contract was cancelled when she slapped a senior actress for disrespecting Sarah's younger sister. Sarah Roles in another theater company for awhile including one as a Russian princess before taking a break from acting. Wile away, she had the first of what would be many love affairs over the course of her life. This one was with Anri. Prince, deleting. Sarah gave birth to her only child soon after. Throughout her life Sarah would be linked to many famous men. By Eighteen, sixty six Sarah had returned to acting and was performing at the Odeon theatre this time she captured the public's adoration and the attention of critics. Her roles included minstrels, Netto and the play lip Assad. Performing that role, Napoleon the third came to see Sarah and action. Critics felt mixed about Sarah. George. Bernard Shaw called her acting childishly egotistical. Victor Hugo on the other hand loved her performances. Rumors claimed that Sarah and victor also had an affair. 1872 Sarah returned to the comedy. Francois's increasingly playing larger parts, and eventually earned critical acclaim. She played the title character's and voltaire's ear, and Genre scenes, Federa- and she played Desdemona in Shakespeare's Othello. In Eighteen Eighty Sarah formed her own acting troupe and embarked on many long international tours, traveling throughout Europe the Americas and Australia. Sarah had a unique charm both onstage and off. Many who wrote about her work, mentioned her silvery voice, comparing it to a flute or bells. She was also famously unconventional offstage. She traveled with the horde of animals, including Cheetah Wolf, alligator and BOA constrictor. She also claimed that she slept in a coffin which she brought with her on her international tours. A widely shared photograph depicted Sarah, apparently sleeping in her coffin, surrounded by flowers. On. Top of all of that Sarah was famous for her romantic connections. In addition to Victor Hugo some claim that she had an affair with the Prince of Wales who would later become King Edward the seventh. Sarah one iconic role after another packing theater after theater. In Eighteen, Ninety nine, she played hamlet in Paris and London becoming one of the first women to do so. The same year.

Have you ever decided to hate a book before you read it because you didn't like the title. That's how I felt after seeing the cover of the plant Messiah by Carlos Magdalena. Let's be honest. The words plant and Messiah. I don't belong next to each other. Remember what Jesus did to that fake Tori. I still don't like the title much but I can heartily Italy recommend the book. The author explains in his forward that it's not a title. He gave to himself as he has long hair and a beard. Checkout is interesting videos on Youtube.

That is he specializes in the propagation of species to maintain living and scientific collections not in the mass production of commercial floor of for attractive landscapes. Hence his title at killed like Dorel Magdalena's job can't be separated from his private life and and it's ultimately connected to a colorful childhood. The boy Gerald had the Greek island of Corfu. But the boy Carlos comes from a story areas in Spain's North West born nineteen seventy-one Magdalena's father bought a small farm when Little Carlos was five five years old allowing his son to grow up in a region with the greatest expanse of deciduous forests in Spain. The author explains what what it was like. In the last years of the Franco regime like so many authoritarians Franko and his followers were convinced that it was a modern modern nations duty to become productive by taming nature that meant destroying as much native vegetation as possible and killing native animals because they didn't turn a profit consequently Spain Burns every summer thanks to its many Eucalyptus Groves School Board Magdalena But his mother taught him to identify wild plants and to garden water. Lilies fascinated him and that fascination continues to this day instead of going onto university Magdalena and a friend opened a successful cafe its profit and sale. Let him move onto the gardens Q.. You where he entered its horticultural training program. He was most interested in the tropical orphans.

Walking Magdalena was convinced that by using a battery of techniques and protocols their numbers could be increased and then repatriated in accordance with Q.. Policy Magdalena I focused on Amihai Lund's of the Mass Korean archipelago where fifty three plant species are regarded as extinct and about thirty percent are endangered often represented in the wild by one lonely plant when Gerald Darryl and his crew visited Mauritius in the nineteen seventies they were after breeding stock of native species of golden furred bats and pink pigeons encouraging them to breed in captivity must have been in a lot easier than Magdalena's attempts to derive seeds or viable cuttings from one or two remaining trees some pollinated exclusively by lizards thirds. He also came across a comet orchid on Reunion Island pollinated by a raspy cricket his colleagues filmed the process with a night. Vision Vision Camera. Water Lilies belong to the family nymph. AC and Magdalena is clearly a nymph. Oh lipped look it up up for me. These were the most stimulating chapters in the book culminating in a two thousand fifteen expedition to Australia's Kimberley with with Professor Kingsley. Dixon now a professor at Curtin University at Perth Magdalena is especially interested in these top and goddesses bodices as they are so well adapted to survive long after Billabong dry out in summer this three week expedition allowed the authored to collect a new species of Nymph area with large flowers and previously MIS identified as a rare hybrid in the northern territory territory.

It could grow and bloom in a porridge bowl. Once found only right at the edge of a hot water spring and Rwanda it is now extinct in the wild in captivity. The flowers produced hundreds of seeds but all died a few days after sprouting underwater. The author tries several experiments. But they fail he. He then checks the literature and notes that while floating leaf pads of water. Lilies suck up plenty of carbon dioxide from the air are there is little in the water for submerged. Baby Leaves Magdalena experiments further until he finds a propagation and designed that feeds the gas to seedlings and dozens of plants reach adult size happy ending. Not Quite chapter eleven recounts the day he discovered that one of his beloved lillies was stolen right out of a public display pool in the Princess of Wales Conservatory late. This hit the international news in twenty fourteen. Magdalena doesn't say so but it looks like the reporting was more sensational than accurate accurate. I remember seething at the time that someone would take the only existing plant in fact many bloomed on in queues research research and propagation houses nevertheless. There's a lot of food for thought here. Did you know that queue has its own police force. It was established established in eighteen. Forty five staffed originally by veterans of the Crimean War. Do you realize the Internet remains the biggest black market for trafficking trafficking and protected species but also defrauds the unwary posting photos of rarities while selling seeds of common relatives. Yes Q now. Repatriates rare species but it and other botanical gardens have older reputations as receivers of stolen goods in the form of Tulip Bulbs Tea Bushes and the seeds of rubber trees. The book provides an epilogue encouraging readers to conduct their own on citizen science in propagation and to join conservation studies. Many of these options suggested will already be familiar to Australian listeners. As the author concludes that unlike the Messiah he can't perform miracles but he can commit his research and future writings to promote biodiversity city and counteract a form of general apathy we bought inists coal plant blindness. Well I tried to to do that over. The past forty years and hope Carlos Magdalena is more successful than I was professor.

I will admit that this is not someone that I knew anything about before reading your book and she seems to be quite a unique person. <hes> in the in the nineteenth century so let's just spend some time talking about her specifically when did she I sort of emerge into the public consciousness but she was born in eighteen forty four and she became famous pretty young so so by the eighteen sixties newspapers were writing about her conflicts with her stage managers and how they were firing her for insubordination. You are not alone in not having heard of her. A fat worked on this book for Awhile Before publishing hit and the most common question I would get was right. Sandra BERNHARDT MS Madonna's girlfriend for awhile so I would then say yes Sandra Bernhardt great but Sarah Bernhard's even better she was someone who was a great performer and a great personality and a great show woman so if you took someone like Meryl Streep with her acting chops and someone like Cardi B. with her flamboyance and someone like Ryan Murphy with his talent for knowing what the public wants and had a package it and roll that person into when you would have Sarah Bernhardt. She was classically trained in France when France was the theater capital of the world in theater was the main way that people got their entertainment but that she also knew how to use new media she had herself photographed at a very young age and often everywhere she went in the world she would visit the leading photographers and have her picture taken. She had her voice recorded by Thomas Edison. When that technology was new she made eight films at a very advanced age? When most people on stage weren't really learning new tricks she made dozens of films so so let's listen before we get to sort of how she very intelligently and cannily finally use the media of her time? Tell me a little bit more about about her younger years right because she came from Dutch Jewish families that right so no one ever found out who her father was her mother was a Courtesan Courtesan and Sarah Bernhardt never never knew who her father was. She stuck out on her own. Pretty Young didn't get along very well with her mother. Her mother was Jewish. Her mother was on Dutch truce woman who came to Paris to make a living and Sarah Bernhardt very quickly established herself as a powerful and interesting actress who took on unusual roles in her twenties. She made a big sensation when she was in a play that was is about a vestal virgin and rather than play the young beautiful virgin she s to play the blind grandmother who has to kill her daughter her granddaughter when she loses her purity and she became famous for going on stage and having only the whites of her is show Oh for hours and figuring out how to stab her grab daughter even though she was blind on stage so she she would choose unconventional roles she had an unconventional appearance. Today people might find this hard to believe that she was actually criticized for being too hugh thin right so let's talk about that a lot in-depth because when as I read the the chapter of your book where you discussed the media's criticism of her at her body in the nineteenth century it was actually pretty shocking right I mean she was she was really raked over the coals quite a bit for her extremely slender physique so the constant factor here is women are raked over the coals for how they look. The part. That's bizarre to us now is that she was lampooned viciously for being too skinny at the time the ideal of beauty really wants to be very buxom curvy she wasn't and she dared to present herself. In romantic roles in fashionable renewable clothes the she did play that role of the blind grandmother but often she played tragic melodrama melodramatic women who sacrificed everything for love or who were fem towels and yet she didn't look the part of it conventionally beautiful woman and she didn't didn't care.
