"Becomes the hindrance and they get distracted easily. Yeah. I interviewed a person recently by the name of bronwyn CRT, who said life is like this. You are on a large playing field here at one end, and at the other end is this real shiny trophy. Now, you don't know what that trophy is. You don't know anything about, but you see it, and you immediately wanted. Now, it's foggy, so you can't see the way clearly to get there. And in the stands are people that are telling you, this is the way you must get there. You must dress this way. You must act as me, you must walk this way. You must do this to get there. And you realize only after trying all these things that the true way of getting there is to listen to your inner voice, not to all those voices that are trying to push you in those other directions. What do you think about that? Absolutely. And this is bringing back to the example I was giving. So if we had a passion and vision defined very well, then only you know where you want to go. Of course, the voices are there to help you, but you have to assess yourself, which voice in which advice is taking you closer, where you want to be. So that's very true. And you have to trust yourself and your process and don't get distracted by the noise around you. That's right. Now, Salman. You have lived a long life and done many things. Suppose you met a younger version of yourself on the street. What advice would you give that younger person? Yeah, I would, I wouldn't change a lot because I think I have lived a very rich life in terms of experience and inquisition and I wouldn't change a lot. The only thing I would tell myself younger version of myself that don't be afraid of failure, just keep going, keep going, failure is important. And you will learn a lot from them. So there have been occasions where in my life that were failure and recovery from a failure was a lot difficult in terms of emotional recovery. However, looking back, I thought that was the most amazing experience for my growth and my development. So the only thing I would tell myself don't be disheartened, just keep going. It's only a setback. It's not a disaster. And it will make you strong. So other than that, I think there are a lot of things, a lot of mistakes that I have made. I value them. And I don't want to change them because they brought me here where I am. And I wouldn't change all those things. Cool. Now, a personal like yourself, having lived all the ways that you have and through all these experience, has climbed a mountain of virtual mountain of adversity. Tell us a little bit about how you got through that adversity, because really those skills that you have are very important for individuals and businesses in this day and age. Absolutely. The first and foremost is believe in yourself. So you must have a belief that you can do it. And you must believe in self that generous is not transpiring against you. It will it will happen for you as well.

"Yeah, that's right. Now another thing you write about is the greatest prison people live in is the fear of what other people think. Let's talk about that for a minute. Yes. So I once heard somebody say, if you really understood how often other people actually talk about you, you'd realize just how insignificant what other people think about you is. We spend so much time in our heads worrying about what people will say, what they're saying about me behind my back, you know, what their impression of me is, whether or not they like me, whether or not I fit in, we spend so much time and energy in that space. And the reality is that everyone's busy. People don't have time to sit there all day, every day, just thinking about me and what I've done wrong and how I could have done it differently and whether I should have worn a different shirt. Whether my lipsticks, the right color, and whatever it is that goes on in your head, you know? Whether you handle that situation will we spend so much time worrying about the things that are passed and the things that might come. Instead of actually living in the present and it really does keep us trapped in a prison like environment because while we're in that mindset, we can't move forward. So, you know, one of my favorite quotes is what someone else thinks about me is none of my business. What's my business is what's going on for me right now in the present. And whether or not I'm actually aligned through the things that are true to who I am. Because my thoughts and the way that I think about things are going to be completely different to the thoughts and the way that somebody else thinks about things because we're different people we have different filters we have different life experiences and we'll see things in different ways. So whatever you get caught, worrying about what someone else is thinking about you or indeed worrying about what someone else has done and what they're thinking and what their behavior is. You're really just distracting yourself from the things that you need to concentrate on your own life.

"Ladies and gentlemen, today we have a very special guest. Bronwyn sorrentino, who is a recovering perfectionist who spent over 17 years in a high powered award winning executive job. And a soul crushing industry before developing a book that she wrote called the kiss principles and stepping away from her traditional life. Working with people globally through corporate programs, conference programs retreats, one on one programs. She literally has changed her life from what it used to be to what it is now. Welcome, Broadway. Hi, so great to be here. Thanks for having me. As you can tell, bronwyn's from outside of North America. She's got a bit of an accident. Where are you from Brian? I'm from Perth in Western Australia. There we go. And I've been to Australia. I haven't made it to Perth yet, but I hope I will do that on my bucket list. It's one of those places that I think is really nice, and I know why you live there. It's a beautiful place. Yeah, it's one of the most extraordinary places in the world. So, so lucky to live here. Yeah. Well, let's go down back in your history there. Tell us a little bit about your past there. And what happened to you?

And we see, you know, these Proto hobbit like creatures and the main character within that is a young teenage spunky young girl, nori brandy foot. If you didn't do everything you weren't supposed to do, we'd hardly do anything at all. And then there's bronwyn the who's this healer and single mother. And with care by what? I can not say, but they were digging towards us. I tell you, we remand here at our peril. We haven't seen any of these characters aside from bureau in previous Tolkien works, which yeah, it could be a really exciting thing or it could be a disappointing thing. This could be a system where it's like, okay, they're all going to get killed or raped or degraded in some other way. So the question is still kind of out there. So as you mentioned so far, you have just seen the two episodes of the rings of power, but in what you've seen to this point. Is this a more feminist rendering of middle earth? I think there's certainly a lot more representation in this version of middle earth, which I think is really cool. There are POC, which do not exist in The Lord of the Rings outside of some arguably pretty racist stereotypes. And so that's been really interesting to see, like we never saw a single dwarf woman in The Lord of the Rings, and we see a ton of dwarf women in this one. So yeah, I mean, I think in terms of representation, yes, I would say that it is absolutely more inclusive and diverse. But I'm not sure if we can say this show is feminist or the show is not because, you know, I mean, it does pack the past the bechdel test, which I'm pretty sure Lord of the Rings doesn't, so that's .1 for rings of power

I give myself lunch so the dog gets lunch too. I can find a study rhythm in the needs of another being, something sustainable, and something I can count on. I walk the dog around the neighborhood, and even she has her routines. She stops at the neighbor's peony, and tries to pee on it, before we gently guide her further along. And my husband makes the joke that the peony should be called a pee on me. And this is how time passes. At night there's the glow of the TV screen. Some books moved back upstairs to the office to keep surfaces clean and clear. There is safety and security in these routines. I can find myself counting on them. And yet, I also don't want to get lost in them, or rather, I want to be sure I'm doing them with intention, noticing the walk, the dog, the peony, my husband's good company. I am sometimes scared that the whole routine of life might swallow me whole. For example, I fold the blanket that we keep on the couch every night before I go to bed. You could even say my life is just folding and unfolding the blanket. A woman in a living room window, folding and unfolding the blanket. Even as the mind wanders, the world careens from one awful tragedy to another. They are all B folding and unfolding the blanket until one day, when I'm not.

We measure the days in peaches, bruises, livid, lose the keys, find them later in the dirty laundry. What is habit, that it wakes me up to effort.

This is the same battle we sold between facebook snapchat. Talk and everyone else. It's competing for your attention. Getting someone sit on your heart and that heating up right now we can see the mergers and acquisitions that are happening with facebook with apple with a lot of those big companies that making big plays to own a bit more three d. pot of our attention not just out digital cd screen based attention. So you can see that game settle. And we'll see some kings and emperors come out of space but at the same time we're gonna see the lines being drawn on the physical space adds physical governments stock try and govern that virtual space which is difficult but not impossible. And i can say that if you look at what's happened in the crypto market which is probably something we haven't spoken about which would speaking about the different empire on a different plane. It's also playing out in our real world right now. People are trying to get old. Essentially a currency based social network to get critical mass. So they can build a bunch of digital citizens in terms of the money space and once those three planes six we see where that physical lines are way different kingdoms in the digital space on the different kingdoms in exeter crypto digital currencies. Face off. then we will start to see. Vertical integration as faith for example china takes over a virtual empire in claims for itself. And then take that.

It's pasta house own. Physical space contains the physical body. How you control through fear of pain and hunga basic human needs to contain the virtual space which is where our minds live. And that's where the attention is going to live so the physical government will eventually have to merge will be subsumed by who actually ends up earning. Perhaps you have to own all three layers. The layers coast. The currency layer vining important from a power perspective. Because this is how government works. Sort of taxation systems book the welfare and the wolfe's states for one funds little things you need to get buying your system when ice things like welfare in security and the padding that you'll be if you'll event but you also need a full collection of that value from people and that comes through from the sort of taxation side of the system so you have to control money face and attention in the future if you want to future impact which is like the difference between playing chess. Playing goes geopolitics gonna play out. It's only just beginning. And i don't think anyone in china has talked about all three layers i will. I will concur with that last. Thought like the three layered idea. I think probably a lot of people are gonna have nightmares from this episode. But maybe they maybe they should bronwyn. Maybe they should. Yeah lots of think about in terms of what real ownership of the virtual space is gonna look like. I mean i hope the free world figures out how to balance these right if you if you just if you read enough confucius as an emperor would read it not as a free person. But then the playbook stare but you know if you like pericles a lot and you like that kind of separation dispersion of power and whatnot. Geez it's it's hard to figure out how those puzzle pieces are gonna come together with any semblance of harmony. We're gonna have to learn the hard way. I suppose citing we'll positive night biz. No reason why you're going to end up with one power. That owns oils three layers. At the same time we probably still going to see up. Patchwork just like we see in the real world as i say.

While i'm just walking around and i can check my email just out of the corner my out. Whatever the future this real immersion looks like. It would seem like as much of that as you can own the better. Whoever owns what people wake up and go to sleep in just wince. It just feels like that's win so winning. Is you own the world from when they wake up until they go to bed. The only real player in that game to that degree of grandeur in in investment kind of totality is the chinese communist party. As far as i can tell you know. Facebook might try to get as far as they can not calling bad. I'm just calling them you know. They're they have their own. You know every business is gonna try to you know rule the world facebook will take a shot at it you know maybe google take a shot at if they get glasses back up. You know amazon. Would you're likely to do all your shopping. I know if they're going to become where you wanna chat with your friends or whatever but it it feels like eventually there will be a tremendous amount of power wielded by you know who gets the most airtime and human attention. Who's universe people. Breathe the most breaths in. they're waking existence. Do you see that heating up. Mostly just in places like china where that total nominations going to be viable or do you see that same dynamic coming out to more democratic nations to. I don't think any state by. I think that if you compared to japon six you've got to go back quite a far away in time. So most of the time when the whole world hasn't been discovered yet where people were still so bumping into different empires because this game is being played on different things. You got the geopolitical game which we starting to see actually come into real fruition. The trade was he seeing the banning of people's accents in the firewalls going up as government start to realize that there is actually a power game being played in a virtual soviet. Not just the physicals. Yes. that's the one game it's going to say so. But that's only the ones i mentioned knows i mentioned is happening in that. Virtual face the virtual space essentially operate outside of those gyp political boundaries. Why you've got protesters like joshua wong in hong kong who are able to run purchase on animals.

"Advocates. And then from the other point you're making chimps of the actual bondage point. I think it also comes from like you know your response. Angle bay too but attempts better Looking much further down the line it opens a very interesting competitive equilibrium conversation that i'm quite fascinated by having trained in economics. A perfectly equitable. Lock it in perfect equilibrium between supply and demand when everything matches perfect. He has no profit for anyone ryan to that. That's that's perfectly competitive. Market is swaying. All image is being out of the market and the bind. Sell price is perfect. And if you think about human markets it's all about decisions. Were outsourced you would you. You couldn't erasing. I'm not saying what happened in principle get to that first equilibrium with his new profitably for anyone and that's the sort of a is not. Just start the almost a you type. The that's like chris. communism i've known prophets. Everyone supply meets demand. Everything is equitable. they're coming back to bondage questions. Only advantage as long as a is smarter than the knicks state prize. Ai otherwise doesn't suck margin out of the market me for marketing. Econ respective margin. Going loyd is in the humans that have more irrational side of the decision. Making as me watching comes from not actually from your perfect machine is seeking to extract ola value from that market. It's been an interesting conversation. But i think that it's worth considering from a corporate. If you on trying to to play the game for advantage i think michael lewis is book flash. Boys i mean written quite a quite a while ago already soaked about how when you optimize do that to optimizing literally a winner takes all and difference between winning. Leasing is having a slightly foster incident connections. The next guy sir caution on that if you think playing that game yeah an interesting dynamic there. A lot just came to mind for me. I mean i'm thinking about you know. What would i advocate. Well you know. I'd advocate silly things. I don't like to spend my time on like reordering basics for for my house. Or even like i don't know maybe maybe even ordering when i need somebody to clean the house or whatever the case may just some some threshold number where i'm willing to spend but i could also imagine even farther future near talk about margin. You got me thinking. I thinking okay. Well what if instead of it being amazon automatically stocks my fridge. That doesn't sound like a good idea it instead. What if it's my own sort of self interest bought which is gonna look on amazon. But it's also gonna look on eighteen other different ecommerce spaces and maybe even will like have some means of negotiating with them or something. I'm not really sure it might just be picking the lowest price a might be communicating. It might be searching for discount codes on every single corner of the frigging web and plugging automatically for me. Whatever the case may be. But i can imagine that being a margin. Evaporation play if everybody's every purchase is hyper optimized than whoa. Where's the grocery money. Come from although. Yeah so i see that the other thing so i like that idea lot bronwyn up the other thing i see you talked about the irrationality so to speak man. I can see a i being used to encourage all sorts of irrationality already. I can imagine. So you know games like world of warcraft. Or some of these mobile games actually will let us mobile gaming right away. We have an episode with a company called scope. Lee on the podcast. This might have been four years ago. There now are unicorn. Billion dollar company raised a tremendous sum of money. They've got people spending ten thousand dollars a month on mobile games. Like i'm not even joking that that's a real thing. And so the way that they can proxy out who the whales are and constantly encourage engagement. We might say you. And i might say. That's irrational now i. I can't speak for the person spending that kind of money. But you and i might say that's rational. A i think is being used for both. If i'm not mistaken. I face sleeping used. Try our own irrational. It's been criticized using would irrational nicole. The human magic while the human may still just like what makes us imperfect beings. You're the biological side of taking advantage of the monkey suit. Let's just call it. That of the monkey thing. Yes exactly but i. I think irrational gets the points of across quickest. I mean if you want to put it that way but of course chasing chasing lovable value. Happy news is rational but it's it's fulfilling affiliate irrational need or human needs. Let's homogeneous comes from comes from humans. Now we're and that's exactly what he's talking about abott's arbitraging human nature against us to extract as much value. Promise as possible. However i have my own personal bach that i've set up to protect me from being irrational. Anybody bucks finding with box and once again you sort of get into that. Sort of zero sun yang. I think what's very interesting. There's with will. Gt p. three things been going on recently on. What struck me amazingly that as someone who's come from marketing background i'd be horrified by the rise of conti mafia like Anything marketing economics people as even slightly sing because marketing is ridiculous. You basically using human brains to optimize for bucks rice. So did you get more clicks than more eyeballs on your website putting those keywords. You get the butts to like you know suddenly you. Gt three coming on board. And you basically about that's gonna ride for a bunch which is basically. It's a tale eating snake. It's a little curse of loop that goes on there so cut the humans out of the system and you just got lots optimizing writing for box to search and that's what happens. That's a great analogy. What happens for me. Stop trading watsa gain spots trading advertise against avocado enron is out so senior decisions to machines. You're quickly run into that sort of dade in dry equilibrium aloni wakes reinject value. That system is to appeal once again. Irrational human cokes. Back into the woods with new shiny things have macon exploits our mystical nature that sort of soul. That makes us human being strange things but join understand. If you wanna get really philosophical. Let sneak is not bringing in the host of the future of super intelligence and how it relates to us human beings because what a super intelligence ever developed its own sort of irrational soul. And the couldn't we would always be the spanner in the work. We would always be the monkey throwing the dot into the stock market. Wasn't that whole perfect system to come down because that's the point if there's just one human trading on a stock markets being otherwise in time and traded by butts it becomes unpredictable chaotic once again because we all that strange i think systems get a long enough time horizon. I suspect the nuances. We might not use the word soul but the the nuance decision. Making the convocation of motives of super intelligence would be as if not astronomically more complicated than ours. But we'll have to see if we can get there. I want to. And i hope we've got another minute or two bronwyn. I wanna wrap up on one topic. That i realized i didn't get to yet where we're just coming up on. Time is around how these dynamics influence power so maybe we can end on this. I want to respect your time. But i really want to explore this. You and i have a lot of great online conversations about the future. Big game of international governance obey. I an kind of economic power when you think about this this whole virtualization of the world these platforms that are virtual that maybe become more important than the geographies that you rent you think about how. Ai is optimizing them to take advantage of rational forces into to also may be coaxed out some and irrational fortunes to get some spending or whatever. How do you fundamentally see sort of the game of power changing. You can take from a government standpoint. You can take this from on economics. A business standpoint of monopoly standpoint.

Seth and i don't think we're going to reverse that decline in real productivity search. Summarize my aunts. It's your question if you're going to see increases in speed end in power of the virtual world that continued decline in progress in the real world in terms of physical bodies in way we connect around faces in cities. That's curious because i suspect some folks will disagree with that. But i understand your logic and and i see where you're i see where you're headed in i can see the validity of kind of where you're coming from there to sort of build on this. You talked about some of the dynamics that will happen moving forward the Listen to these virtual worlds with them. Look like where do you see artificial intelligence playing a role there. You know as as we're getting pulled in a. I might be part of a polls us in might be part of what keeps us. There might be part of what adds value to those those new digitally go systems or the business models any high level thoughts around is role in this vacuum. That's taking us into the virtual world. I think my biggest point they would be that increasing nubia going to outsource our responsibility and decision-making sue artificial intelligence and probably sounds like quite a trike onset. I think that it also touches on one of the things. I was speaking about earlier in terms of politics. The trade off between the privacy and freedom and security and the way we interact opposite real quiet someone to look off dressed and what are speaking about with contract tracing acts apple going one responsibility in a complicated world. there is a massive dimond with a very disappoints. Degeneration like we are in this conversation with to outsource responsibility for our decisions to somebody will something else. This is not just because it's difficult to make decisions but it's also be difficult to live with the consequences of your decisions if you are only responsible to yourself for how your life chande. There is a huge incentive. Even looking at twenty twenty. In how the world funded to cova and all this to say governments make the decision on my behalf and went missing from a health or economic perspective. But someone playing. I joined have to look to myself as to why things went wrong. Full myself and nazi insensitive is to why people will be happy to outsource more decisions to artificial intelligence. Fishing has become full personalized. Probably sounds quite judgmental. But that's not what i was going for. The real thing is it's down to. Who should i date instead of niece. Swiping lifton ryan. Johnson zoa grindal. Whatever my choices. I can fe finding the base matching and. It's not my fault if it doesn't work out resistance with what judge did i do. Wish should i live a lot of those personal decisions will be outsourced but at the same time a lot of corporate decisions will be out snack actually started. I think the visit of black women was the vital knowledge inches in japan where they started outsourcing their mergers and acquisitions choices to artificially intelligent box instead of getting human board members to make those massive multi billion dollar decisions the decision so about to if it blows up in your face the culprits all gets keep their bonuses because you know we listened to the advice to the machine right so i think they've massive shift responsibility towards artificial intelligence and from a governance perspective. Too i mean looking at what's happening even the uk with predictive policing at the moment it should be a wakeup cool Also saying tough decisions to an artificial entity so that we don't have to worry about that stuff couple things so i certainly think that part of the whole towards quote unquote outsourcing is the abdication of being responsible when the result occurs. I think there's there's certainly appeal there. Although there's a lot of lash back around that idea in the world i mean to the point where actually consider a lot of it to be preemptive in bloviating in other words like oh how will companies be responsible for the decisions of their ai. Even when it's like the most banal just obscenely boring crap in the universe like like. How do we find legal documents with natural language processing. Search that have this kind of clause. It's like there's no racial bias in net device but on the other hand. I don't say that in total just here. I think that it's potentially a good thing that there were thinking seriously. About the ethical considerations in the bias considerations these systems before they come into being i think on the aggregate. That's probably good. I decry successes and unfounded accusations but commend the fact that it exists even before the concerns exist on some level so i feel like application is israel i feel like there will be pushed back against total application particularly it can lead to real deal unfairness and you know. That's a good thing to other forces. Though convenience feels big i would abdicate the refilling of my refrigerator without thinking about it with no problem whatsoever because it would just be convenient whenever something is below whatever threshold just hit my car just hit it like i know what the prices are. So long as it's twenty percent more than usual don't have my card but if it's if it's within range hit my car. I would advocate that without question. There's also sort of an advantage. Scientists so presumably the decision that you had talked about. You might be right that the board just wants to keep their bonuses. There also might be actual tangible. Better emanate decisions being made by said system then by the human teams. So there's advantage there's convenience and there's also application feels like all of those might pull us to say okay machine. You take the next step. Do you agree with that. Yes i mean for me on the convenience key second got spoken about that quite a few times opponent folks that i've given the convenience the first running towards outsourcing responsibilities start with full responsibility petromin but exiled sir case that iraq should up more important responsibilities.

"Actually we'll give it as much as we going to be doing. More inhuman things in humans faces the way we connect to technology will become an field to be more natural in a physical sense remains the same. Of course we could be opening up a whole lot of different challenges than having to be messing around without very biological involved brain probably slightly different conversation but i typically seasonality becoming more more intuitive so more tactile obeys more auditory base more natural ways of communicating with it because it's very unnatural even to type. What's use a screen. He's never going to stick around forever for the rest of humanity at all so the incident will become more like considered emanates. That are all around us. The radius connecting everywhere. look at the of stalling satellites. No risk is not much. We have to do from a device to be connecting in ways. That actually seem invisible to us. Senator that you don't want to talk about things like google. Glasses seem very very cheesy wreck. Another attack need dead but they were ready as thought they really more natural way of connecting with screens than actually firing up a little black square and turning it on carrying his separate device with us even seeing the adoption of smart watches which is in my part of the world probably only caught on in the last two years and how quickly they've gone from like the one guy that works in accounts complete pizza even nerd had what years ago. It's now everyone has one and how comfortable we get with omni prison technology because that's the catch from of social liberty perspective is the with a device as artificial as it. Is that black square. It is separate from us so we can put it away. We have to or as the technology become closer and closer to us. We don't even notice that is always on always around us. And in essence that point we all living in four dimensional world. Even if we not clinch to sneak thinking about it. It's all around us all the time and i think that's the the wake-up cool lay was started seeing amazon. Alexis in google hoods getting everywhere people talking to the incident black. It's a friend when you've got children that have a relationship with the inanimate objects in their houses so that is a key point as to the direction that we hidden where connecting to the virtual isn't going online being online over time and even now talk about digital that's old fashioned word next thing is just being connected to this part of the social experience us. The way we hit is yeah. The idea of internet to sort of aether. Net the kind of greek Exactly the origin of that that symbol there. But i i like that notion i. I remember an interview that i conducted some seven long years ago. Almost nobody listened to the podcast now as a listener way back in the old days but i remember an interview with a researcher who had explained that we left the jungle where everything was alive to go to very controlled spaces and now we're going to be entering a new jungle where everything is alive all the time again. You mentioned screens going away. You talked about alexa to some degree. Serey i suspect is sort of part of the mixing. Google glass didn't work out but the idea is still a strong idea which is to say you know by movements in by voice commands will just have virtual value overlaid over the physical world when you talk about screens going away and you talk about this always on this. Where else might that manifest. What are some instances of what a day in the life might look like where we don't have a screen we talking about brain computer interface. I mean that might be a little longer than ten years. But maybe maybe you are kinda hinting at that. Are we talking about a glass like device so we just talking about. I think a lot of people say oh ten years. Our keyboards gonna be replaced. I don't understand that. What are your thoughts on this screens. Going away idea. What does it look like somebody who has trained in marketing. I'm not going to try and define what that so is gonna look like because the market will dictate what works. I think notice. The technology is already day touch base computing using like micro devices that can pick up basically to as a project so you can type in the aerosmith like the aside from the early. Two thousands episodes that technologies bay. I've probably seen probably gonna start auditory. I like the whole thing can become more smart pods start communicating directory. So it's not in your brain but it's the new. Yeah that's probably going to happen before the glasses catch on losses are gonna come back. I wouldn't reject that concept. You just like we didn't. We shouldn't rejected that have digital watch. I mean they still with us when they were loft ad in the eighties. You know had to come back a few times before they quote on but as since the day in on life i think yes. You will be communicating constantly with technology in a personal space. Probably something auditory stock with from a social perspective. I think that basically we've already got to the point of having a global wi fi curtain. We spoke about previous like a sort of iron curtain where people trapped behind one son in the other arm instead of state surveillance point of view. We're going to be completely accustomed to living living under a magnifying loss of pretty much. Old times i think the twenty twenties had accelerated social acceptance of these banks that horrifies me when we live in democracies democracies will vote for this people do chins around the side of security over freedom if that can also guarantee them things like universal basic income which comes with it near the guilded cage comes with good food and protection in exchange to liberty center that of a bugbears probably not too much interest vio- particular audience who wants to know more about the technology side but i think rana take cider becomes very very interesting because that wifi nate is completely surrounding if finance wants to gain it is connected to all of us not through the brain ships in operations. Just three complete entitles this and has participated sounds quite quite bad of paternalistic benevolent united day. Looking out dress like the big guy in sky you can see how people might be more okay with it and just looking at how quickly and how much dimond there has been things like contact tracing apps for me the locks total.

Run something you go to. I think he'd chimes the commuting work in future work. Think we're going back to the office guys. I think that for many reasons. I think that will control reasons.

"Virtualization might look like a decade fussy. I'd say it's definitely not going to be the same for everyone. The future is never equitably distributed. And i think that things very very nearly didn't even have to cross the boundaries of my own country's find people still have access to the you know we are talking about exactly. Yeah if we want to see like. I think japan is probably furthest along. This line made spoken about that soon in that they have a much. More digitally connected. Scienc- i've saved a lot of social bonds. We still consider very creaky. Urine south africa in the what a family relationship looks like hominy contact points. You have a human being throughout the day. We've seen this. In twenty twenty with how different societies have adapted to the online space. Must be very interesting for me. Pharmacy trained analysts. Expected is how why that might is between people who've been able to see the sea off into the virtual trading the zoom economy as equal it now the digital virtual yet because it's still unique human beings transacting just through screen and how other people have just seen completely left behind. So i think the first thing that be going to see. Is that divide actually get wider. Because once you get to a certain point just like trickle-down economics doesn't necessarily trickle all the way down and that diffusion is not guaranteed. We're going to get everyone to the point where we are now. We have sort of changes ahead in the future. I think that's the first convinced that i have not. I think everyone would agree with you on that. But having seen the way this has played out mike corner of the will. I would say this. Hd more difficult who already left behind to catch up because of the speed of change. Because you chasing an inva- ever increasing species tail hitting you down the road. That's the one point. Let's make sure to come back to that bronwyn. I appreciate that. So we'll look back to when we talk about power at the end of this interview will talk a little bit about that increasing. Divide as well but anyway about the future. I didn't mean to interrupt. I just wanna make sure to put earmark analogy about the future. I think intensive industries be gonna definitely not see with us in the same place down now. Big difference in the education industry led by the. Us in the side is up with some major changes very reasonable considerations like economics and also because of how we are able to start interacting on a much more digital space so party switching from full on degrees to more. You'll micro credential type. Things can happen overnight. But that's the direction we pointing it one of the very base startups in my son. Would he gets mad at signing sexy that they've bite sized chunked very premium universities. So you'll have to oxford's insert digital learning experiences that of classroom learning experience early indication of how even these most undisrupted policies that terrible cynical sequel industries can change very very pasta soon as the market is there. I think the next thing to realize that the next generation the next like the people coming up behind me going into the work space already playing in the virtual space they already have economies businesses and social credit that has real world value in rituals faces so the great example they would be like six communities and how you can actually go see the sob stories on bloomberg platforms about teenagers. He suddenly not able to earn as much money as they were last week. Because the united states is going to ban their car they earn their living. Which is terrific songs. Since abused offering of. What's to come in the shah. You can start to see you need a job. You need a profile. You need social currency to get a hit in the world and that concept of your social currency being more important than your bank account because essentially becomes the same thing Goes the very nicely is where we going from the western eastern perspectives. Whether you're looking at the government orientated. Social credit so is coming from the east china anyone harming india's doing parts of africa urging you got a huge swing not eastern world view of social credit schools to rule your life on that side on the other hand you got the waste vision which is not all that different with social currency still buys you goods and services in the real world but it's social currency bulk on social networks that are essentially established by some sort of free market organization do voluntarily connect to what we see there. Is the son costs in any of these credits systems. Just like his son crossen using currency like actual cash. They sunk costs in bowling. That credits and i think what we've seen the last of the lost really three to five years we started seeing social credit's being like a sort of likes number of followers on your social platforms being translated directly into social credit's would be actually currency that you can trade in exchange for goods and services. You can monetize that popularity and gosh minimal options platforms do that on a platform you pick. It becomes almost like choosing. What country are you going to live because you become hinden on. The rules of that platform feels success in life going forward. So that's an interesting dynamic to watch unfold. Over the next ten years those boundaries in geographies retire ourselves to not necessarily two dimensional terrestrial any more than three dimensional the communities that we invest ourselves in in our formative years harmful vetted stress. We know this from the real world in economic sense to wherever you pay your pension. Ra money into of your life. you've got a sunk. Cost sunk costs. picking the right platform. Become very very interesting in again. You can see this today. Somebody who lives in peru and has a really popular cooking instagram. Feed or something like that right about like recipes or what travel or whatever the heck. The topic is as a bazillion of them. It might be more important that they're on instagram. That there in peru. I mean maybe the background you know. The views are going to be great but if they moved to switzerland the views are also going to be great. And you know they They can cook the same darn recipes or something so where you're kind of setting your roots will increasingly be a choice of platforms versus a choice of geographies as a more important factor. We're seeing more and more companies working remote. Sell the same thing with your job. Prospects that is indeed an important dynamic. I think people should be thinking about a wonder you know. Have thoughts on sort of a day in the life. How will we spend more time in virtual spaces. I think a lot of people what they do is they look forward and they say oh man ten years now. Jeez i mean. I'll probably still using my iphone a lot now probably beyond my laptop for work. Maybe i'll be working remote more. And for me i i would actually posit that. The changes are much different than all work on my laptop more. I'll using my iphone. I suspect will be more immersive. -ly enmeshed with virtual in one way or another. Whether we're wearing goggles augmented reality. What have you do. You have thoughts about that. I've got oodles. But maybe paying off you. But i'd love your thoughts on how we will just be more enmeshed. Living life it will. The screens are going to go away. The screens are mutually. Everybody had them for what's twenty years now and they have been getting smaller negative disappeared. The women be connected to the internet through a device.

"Lot in a different country and i think that is probably a slightly different way to look at why people are escaping into these spaces will going to these faces. What i see in africa and in the community around me. The reason people are starting to engage in virtual space is not actually to escape their environments even though the which is probably tuffah in real terms compared to young people in the develop were for sure but ironically it is the developed world the privilege but not quite privileged enough that are running away from where is in the developing world. People are going to virtual spaces to book out of a sense of hope and opportunity. See kind of these two will push movements going on going to the space autumn. Hopelessness going to space out of a next next an interesting dynamic to look the people going there too bold and creates and make economies over the people of going there too is safe into entertainments into sort of like a digital soma situation. Yeah and i've got a good all kinds of analogies to riff on with that in terms of the the attitudes. I think that there's tremendous truth there. Certainly in the united states most third and fourth generation americans like myself have just completely abandoned the idea of the american dream. I haven't abandoned it myself. But i can understand the reasons right. I mean i hate to see disheartening. I hate to see weakness. But but i can understand the reasons but most people it but yeah the folks that come here from on some academic scholarship from india or columbia. Or what have you just crush. All of the third and fourth generation gets. Who really are you know. They're they're kind of getting by serve. Don't wanna hurt more as opposed to active pursuance active. Serve building of something both of these that you're talking about people who are sort of going into the virtual space for escape and comfort and folks that are going in there with some ambition both of those as they start to build and spend more time in there those are polls the pull of escape in the pull of ambition wants more and more of these ambitious business endeavors and social endeavors wants more and more of these comfort folks who are ultimately paying somebody for those comforts namely the ambitious once. More and more folks are there. Doesn't that also create more of a push in other words if the place to get this kind of entertainment is clearly best in this virtual space or the way to handle this business need is clearly business virtual space now. There's a push where it's like. Well i kind of have to think about my my father with amazon ready. You know five years ago. Six years ago it would have been like. Oh i'll never you know. I just go to stores you know. I don't do all that crazy stuff. But at some point they have actually everything and at some point. It's actually like twenty percent cheaper than in stores in at some point. It's there the next day and at some point you're kinda pushed like you have a life. You only have so much time. And you're just gonna do it. Do you see the proliferation of both the pleasure seeking in in the ambitious going into these virtual worlds also creating a bit of that poll dynamic also creating a push. Oh yes that's eventually going to reach a tipping point where it makes more sense to bull your earth new value in the an unearthly virtual space than in the real space. That's where your hot is. Where your treasure lies eventually There two pools a very symbiotic. Because you need a markets that are being wealthier leaser seekers and you need bull doesn't make is which are your more ambitious people going out there to make a living in these new spaces because literally cons in a physical world and once you reach a critical face mess but you need a good dynamic day between buyers and sellers to create a sustainable market. Once you get to that point. It becomes a lot easier for the knicks waves to start adopting on these platforms. I think the reason why hasn't taken wasi technological Sustained gregory disappointing per user experiences seen about his funding to bio trade scripture as has been to play in virtual reality with evil. Might i think things are changing. Eventually it reaches a point where it goes from being early adopted being mass mock net tipping point tends to happen actually quite quickey. You just need that critical mass. We've seen this social networks and that's really hard like to think about these. Virtual is being a social network not being a game so i think that that really is keeps think about think about it a senior three social network and we used to these social networks facebook twitter snapchat alerts have me for a couple of decades. The next one is the three d. Social network and we do understand that all markets the social networks to streets economies themselves. So that's been becomes quite robust. I wanna carry this analogy through. Because i am going to have to go a little bit farther into the future here in really looking forward to that part of exploration with you but you know even facebook these two d. virtual spaces or to social networks. That's a huge part of the dynamic of what building virtual value is right. I mean there are some people who you know. Outside of an instagram account are just dead to the world. Rather they're just they're just dead to the entire world and that's not to say that's a bad person right. I'm not judging it by any means. I mean if you go and crush it on instagram. Like god bless you as an agnostic is using it as a phrase but seriously perfectly fine. But you know. I even think about my own business here. You know before corona virus. I would go speak at places you get to see united nations headquarters and hold the mic to go into big corporates but but really it's an email list right. It's a website. It's it's our social channels. I mean a lot of this is virtual even the value of the firm that i have mean a substantial amount of his virtual probably even more and more virtual moving forward many other businesses. It's it's exactly the same and people say well. I'm not like living in vr. I'm in the real world man but it's you know if you're running if you're running a business. I'm in front of screens twelve hours a day. That doesn't mean i'm sucked into them. But but jeez. I mean outside porna- glass of tea or taking a walk. I mean you could say them. In a virtual world it almost feels like vr or more immersive full on virtual. Experience is just one more step from where the hell we are. I feel like a lot of people. Don't see it that way but but you made the analogy to social networks. I feel like yeah it is. It is analogous i mean. That's that's the first lily pad to jump on to get across the pond. What do you see as those next steps. Let's paint the picture you know. I know this is bold and neither of us have a crystal ball but you look ten years out and you say what's a day in the life for a consumer for business. What what's what's gaming like. What's learning like what's buying things like. What's working together in a team like you know. Can you paint some thoughts as to what this increase in.

"bronwyn" Discussed on Artificial Intelligence in Industry
"Trends of foresight in advisory firm based in south africa as well as co author of the future starts now published in july of twenty twenty one bronwyn and i have been in touch on social media for a number of years now and i tune into her work because her thinking about trends is not merely the two year from now kind of slight differentiations of where products might go or where technology trends might lead us but the big picture power dynamics at an international level and the grand transition of humans brain computer interface artificial intelligence in a longer term timescale i. There's very few people who can think in a cogent way about what the future might hold and think beyond slight adjustments to what today's picture looks like bronwyn and certainly among them. None of us have a crystal ball. But i think it's useful to be able to provide a lens into the future and consider how we might adapt as folks in businesses folks in government to a world increasingly molded by artificial intelligence. This series as i've mentioned a few times here in our two previous episodes is intended to provide different perspectives. Different windows into what human day to day life might look like ten twenty years from now is artificial intelligence becomes vastly more important and more powerful bronwyn and crosses into the world of blockchain as well as leaning into trans humanism. A topic that we share some interest in and talks a little bit about her perspective on how technology impacts society from living in africa often. I'm speaking to folks in the states. And we're talking about sort of the broader western world if you will and maybe the dynamics between the west and china but in africa there's a lot of interesting trends and ways at technologies being adopted that are unhindered to some degree by some of the legacy technologies that we've had to go through in quote unquote more developed nations and bronwyn share some of her perspective on how that might mold future trends in the economy and future of the human experience. Which again is the focus of the series. So i hope you'll enjoy her take. She's the only south african that we've had in this series and probably one of the few south africans we've had on the program in general so her accent is delightful as her mind. I'm grateful to be alive. Bronwyn here with us in this episode. Somebody who's perspectives. I value greatly. And i hope you will as well. This is episode. Three eight and our future series. And this is bronwyn williams so bronwyn glad to have you with me here and you and i have been in touch for quite some time before. Finally this interview together and this seems like the topic to talk about before. We t- ops or where the virtual space is taking us. I want to get your perspective. I've seen some of your tweets on this as to what are the forces that are pulling us more into virtual spaces we're all on zoom calls now. Video games are more immersive when you look at. What's pulling the human experience into something that's more digital than physical. What are those big forces in trends for you. Let's suppose you can look at it. From cushion approved specs of i think in the near term we looking for people being pushed into these spaces by the just general creative constraints of twenty twenty literally having to work from home djing lockdowns and a lot of people so adapt that forms that adopt two platforms. That perhaps they wouldn't be resistant to in the pastas security old people who might not be comfortable with using virtual environments to interact with banana field. They have to and of course. The united states is the mother of invention in. We have to do these things. We can adapt not that terrible candidate. But i think that's a superficial on there. In a more borton on cigars back to the cool trends but have been pulling society interim much mobridge allies face who actually very very long time as more and more also of earthy value abandoning placed on our lives in hosted online. It makes sense the follow. Their without physical body is not time in our tension. I think some of the reasons behind that you wanna get quite deep into it. Is that old concept of the difference between expectations and reality and at the moment particularly in the developed world. I'd like to speak about it as being developed as e. d. as in kind of finished complete. There's a lot of hopelessness particularly now. Mind young people about how much impact and how much six six they can have in the real world and it's becoming easier to make amok fuel cells in a virtual main to face is in the real world and we have to talk about this honesty. Most of the developed will my generation and a millennial. Unfortunately i don't take responsibility for my generation a lot of us first generation to literally not able to meet our parents standard of living from a human perspective. You go back to the constitution of the united states that pursuits of life. Liberty and happiness is about progressing. That's what humans want to do. We want to progress. We unable to progress in the real world. It's very tempting for us to escape into virtual space so we can see this across the world. I suppose the canary has like say. In particular coal mine would be more in japan who have literally given up on real life and jumped into a virtual space when they can live on the oin terms succeed. According to different bunch of dynamics. Wow i so i like that. You're actually touching on this. 'cause you've read the piece that i put together those you listening. It's damage all dot com slash japan. I talk about japan. Sort of abandonment of especially young men abandonment of achievement. In the real world in exchange for kind of a week fulfillment of needs in virtual spaces. I think you're touching on the fact that this is really common in the developed world. I also do not take responsibility for millennials. I won't speak. Overtly ill of them on this podcast. Some of them. I like rather finally. But i think our vices are numerous. That said yeah. I mean you know. A lot of us graduated right when the big crash happened. You know and i think that the idea of kind of hopelessness or maybe not having as much to do in the physical space you know. I can think about a lot of ways that manifest some people are gonna play multiplayer online games like he kamori or like you know video game addicts in the united states. And they're going to be in these. Virtual worlds are gonna have virtual friends and things like that. Some of them are are going to. You know as as a as a man particularly if you're not very well accomplished and achieve much going for you maybe you'll get pulled into the kind of the black hole of you know the pornography space so to speak because you don't have much hope for that area of your life and you still have needs. there's also you know thinking about prominence in the virtual space. I don't know just tweeting all day and building an account that has a lot of followers. Because you can do that even if you can't earn seventy thousand dollars a year you know i'm throwing out some random stuff but for you. What does that look like. So so hopelessness in sort of the physical world of kind of becoming accomplished seeking. I think we call this human need for significance in virtual spaces. Talk about the manifestations. Yeah exactly so that that is disney. A great point because there's different types of cards at the end of the day is only proxy social currency anyway so convenient proxy sort of accounting system. We can all agree with across the world but if interest to go back to my previous points that's developed world stacey this generation running away from reality from jutras things of hopelessness. Don't have hope in the real world. They going to face when i can have social currency in social kudos and a sense of significance in a different face. I think the case with developing world which i in potter is coming from. South africa is a difference in fact news very little medical of south africa itself as an example yet because obviously a lot of external immigration happening for my country women due to the economic and political instability. But you kind of two types of people. You've got people who leave to run away from situation they can't handle and then you've got people that go to a.

Icelandic Hot Dog Stand and Signing Your Name 250,000 Times
"In the summer of two thousand eight. My wife sarah. And i traveled to europe with another couple. Our friends laura and ryan. I like laura and ryan a lot but one thing you need to know is that they are the sort of people who really try to suck the marrow out of life and make the most of their brief flicker of consciousness and all that stuff. This is very different from my style of traveling wherein i most of the day psyching myself up to do one thing visit a museum perhaps and the rest of the day recovering from the only event on my itinerary. The trip took us from denmark. Sweden and then on to iceland a small and mostly rocky island nation in the north atlantic. That attracts tourists primarily by offering free stopovers to anyone who flies iceland's national airline. Iceland air. I was interested in visiting iceland partly because i have a longstanding fascination with tiny nations and partly because my publisher jewish strauss gable had told me she loved this one hot dog stand in iceland called bayern's be to answer the trips to sweden and denmark had been lovely there were smorgasbords and museums but the highlight had been an evening spent with ryan's swedish relatives. Who lived on the shores of some vast lake in the swedish wilderness. They welcomed us to their home and proceeded to get us blisteringly unprecedentedly. Drunk on sweden's national wicker bronfman. I do not often drink to excess. Because i have an intense fear of hangovers but i made an exception. That evening ryan's relatives taught us swedish drinking songs. And they taught us how to eat pickled herring and my glass kept getting filled with bronwyn until it lasts the eighty year.

Women on the Line
In community and out of prisons
"In any given year hundreds of kids language behind bars in australia. The minimum age of criminal responsibility is ten in other words of both graded can be arrested and brought before corp camera is the only jurisdiction has taken steps theresa age this week on women on the line raise the age campaigner and solicitor. sophie Explains why locking up. Kids is not only traumatic for the child but exposes them to further And in the second half of the show to win times marissa's Chats bronwyn carlson a professor of indigenous studies at macquarie university. We want to thank maria for giving us permission to play his special international woman's day coverage but first up. Let's look at the campaign to raise their age. Welcome to woman on the line sophie. Thank you very hurt before we look at raise the age campaign. I thought it'd be important to discuss some of the issues that kind of a span the campaign. so let's stop from the top. What factors lead to youth offending proably aware but in australia children as ten year old can be arrested by police and putting the present. So we're talking about extremely young children when we talk about these ideas offending offending anything Maybe an out of home care who Throws them dinner across the room because they get frustrated right through to the things that we might move typically think about like lifting or Some sort of property graffiti something like that. So there's a whole Spectrum of how young people might get caught up in the criminal justice system aboriginal and torres to own the kids of on will likely to be picked up by police arrested put in prison cells than non indigenous kids and the reason that this is a combination of voice over policing so these kids just thing more visible to police and police targeting these these children more often and policies which make lot hotter for these keys high level of poverty and more insecure in unaffordable housing. Things like that got you. And so what happens when children do come into contact with the criminal justice system i had is there. Life generally pan out so again it really depends on who the child is So as i said keep the jiang. ten can come into contact with criminal justice system for that means they might be arrested by police. Taken to a police lockup cell or the night with they might be held that we brought before court and it will be decided what happens to that child Kids that i worked with minimum territory. you know often within sent to sent to juvenile justice detention centers so effectively presents You know where they can be held. If any length of time ed alternative of course his kids particularly to on average charge two kids who come from more privileged background. They might get diverted by police. They might be given a warning that might be taken hunch their parents so a lot hangs on how the police interact with the children. Right the reason. I ask that question was to sort of look at what happens. Like how does prison exists the issue so these kids are going in for minor problems but what does the criminal justice system due to them. Yeah so you almost nothing. Good comes out of the criminal justice system. All the medical evidence tells us that The younger child comes into contact with the criminal justice system. The more likely that they will stay engaged. So that means you know you pay if a kid is eleven years old when they first have contact with police them much more likely to later in life including when adult continue to have that that contact with the criminal justice system and there were lots of reasons to this. But they're all pretty simple when you when you take a kid a child away from their family away from schooling away from all those social structures and support if extremely traumatic for the child. A young person's brain is developing until the about twenty five itchy tilles very young so it disrupts the way brain can can form mature and clerk even basic things like egypt taken out of the formal education system. Says six months very hard for you to reengage with that when you get back. It's very hot. Eatery engage with your friends and your family and third. These kids have a lot of difficulty issuing than normal lives in the community officer being disrupted and very traumatic way by putting these children tension sensitive
Future Cities Africa
The Emergence of Private Cities in Africa
"Come to africa today. I'm excited to come back. Robin williams bothering flex. Trains ronin recently published twenty one trains twenty twenty and one that stood out for me is private cities bronwyn. Thanks for being back. What is a private says. He and how is it. Different than the city's bill houston. Let me talk about private cities. The first thing to notice that as with most trains does have some context in history and we could look back in time to the company towns that quite quite a big deal in the history of america so if you talk about small town life across the american continent which academy as sort of concept was colonized and became the american today. One of those small towns ready set up by companies sufficient based mining companies. Late on it might become big retail city towns and essentially the whole concept of a company. Town is a town that only exists. Because tequila company has decided to put its head coaches. They and what happened with a lot of these company towns to is those companies would have to subsidize the community so in fact they kind of owned so north to get workers to go move to sort of an ounce of the way out in the sticks environment of setup and make a life the company up to provide that a job they might have to provide a communities to attract workers to stay. They wouldn't be able to be self sufficient. Self sustainable business view said for example he drake's or nail salon putnam of people. You want to sit up business. The companies often have to sponsor that that came with a whole lot of pros and cons because the company obviously has been a lot more influence over that community than the culprit. Seca public or private sector should have across the most democratic community. Where that's in town and village whatever. It is such a little bit of context. Not this whole concept of private cities can become a lot more intensive but security in the modern era. The poston does age. We can look rain across the world at once. Going on in china and i'm trying to set up a lot of these massive company cities coal company towns are essentially a company workers live workshop. Learn stay at night without actually believing. The company compound and that comas be seen as slightly darkened shade privacy's it's almost more like endangered labor and in fact across the african continent of these executives that have chinese company towns popping up. They might say work places like maybe even here in south africa you have them to basically work about a working. Saint consider put that in brackets. But that's kind of what happens. The only allowed to leave the company. When you've paid back your date and once again that's also got parallels in history where you can see what happened with colonization. Once again how companies like the dutch east india company for example the british company would subsidize travelling costs so they book passage as always people got to the new colonies in this battle days. Depending on how you want to look at it and those who had been work back passage face. They were essentially sort of assigned to sanitize slave to the company until into lake At cash. not looking ahead. It becomes a lot more exciting. Because you've got eat on must for example talking about his mas cuttings. He wants to put into play where he's offering to exactly that sort of deal where is offering to pay evils passage to mas in exchange. The going to have to work that back and until you've been able to work that back. You are essentially sort of property to the company. You got a date that you have to pay and we start thinking about the company private cities particularly off planet. If you're going to get quite dramatic in the peach mas or even waiting on says starlings of space space up there. You know unlike us a space station but a privately run one. What authority are you going to defer to if you like the way he being treated what. Government has oversight in these new territories. That's exactly what happened. With the frontier company towns with the cynical colonial model of that paying passage paying back endanger lay essentially the company was given the mandate on the european space. When it wasn't a government to actually sit up the rules full that society you referred to your local politician because the politician was part of the company so they are a lot of trademarks of that depending on your political views as to how comfortable you with the slow not on the one hand people saying people would only take that deal with an anonymous go with the duchy senior company if they wanted to know what they're getting into their making a deal. People should be able to do that at the same time. Obviously huge issues of potential abuse. That can come out of this and it basically it is. It is quite a can of worms
RHOC's Braunwyn Says She's Not Physically Attracted to Husband
"Well not glass. Tonight's real housewives reunion was wild per usual. There was yelling tears broken hearts and one housewife says she might be leaving the show. Bronwyn and her husband sean. Of course we're a big topic of conversation. They've been married for twenty years. Bronwyn recently came out as lesbian now. We're finally hearing how shod really feels about the situation. I've never been attracted to men physically. Never been attracted to sean physically. No no i mean it breaks my heart to say that i would imagine it breaks your heart to hear it. Yeah i'm still does. How does that make you feel that she has a girlfriend. It's mixed it's hard you know after being with somebody for twenty five years. Of course it's hard to say. Oh my gosh like how did this happen. How did i not see this. But on the other hand she's so much happier and we don't fight you take out the equation. A lot of people wouldn't say a lot of you know what. I am just in shock that she actually said i have never been attracted to men like twenty five years and you've never been attracted to me. He was probably like y la like it all is now making sense. I think for him. He is looking at this from a bigger picture. If you've been with somebody for twenty five years you have six or seven. I don't know it's either six or seven kids with this person and you've been living in a house where there has been alcoholism. There's been fighting. There's been screaming and someone says i've gotten to the root of the problem. You were just relieved that you and your children don't have to live in a home where someone is off the rails
Watch What Crappens
2021 Golden Crappies
"Birdie a welcome to the crappy awards twenty twenty one inc warranty Virtual crappy this is where the crappies began. Wow y- tonight just like the old days you guys. Twenty twenty one has been quite a year. I'd like to congratulate everybody. I mean twenty twenty with quite a year. Twenty twenty one. You know. it's had some shit to already. Twenty twenty was quite a year. So congratulations to everybody for making it through so much has happened in one year. I just think to what it was like before. The whole corona virus thing. I mean things were so great. I was just like sitting alone in my house eating too much. Playing mario talking to no one watching housewives way. Yeah still pretty much. Do that but seriously This year a virus spread across america causing illness. Sadness and loss but enough about kim zolciak. Okay i know. Just think the biggest plague facing this country before this. Jack's taylor guys you know. I spent a good amount of twenty twenty just playing animal crossing. Which as you it's a game about a bunch of animals stuck on an island up. Some of you may not original named the real house. Believe sorry they laugh to sued new york city already. The punchline about to land and the country has gone through a lot you know. I mean besides the corona virus. We've had political upheaval. I mean america's now even more trillions of dollars in debt. I mean no one in government watches housewives. And if they did they'd get fifty girlfriends and force them all to give america hundred bucks on your birthday. I mean we'd still be in debt but lady liberty would have a gucci bag to show for it. You know the on a serious note. The nation was very shocked a few weeks ago when an angry mob raided the capital. And all you gave them was a pizza. Jennifer eight in and we finally got a new president this week and the nation breathes a sigh of relief. Now look i know all of you have different political opinions and that's fine. My personal opinion is thank god that the orange thing left on my. Tv's ram be read mid no but you know the thing is i mean current events were one thing but so much actually happened in the world but it seemed like so much more happened on bravo. Yeah i mean house was getting fired. So many housewives got fired a record amount. I mean it was a slaughterhouse and it was not the organic kind either. there was a lot of botulism in that meet. Okay housewives caster transforming faster than derek kinsley space. Have you seen that thing. It looks like an elbow anyo on below deck mid hannah. Ferrier was fired for smuggling valium onto the boat and then on vanderpump rules jackson brittany were fired for smuggling food via onto bravo and then we have of course. Our trustee good old friend alcoholism. Okay got real outside of new york trying to convince that she's alcoholic then you've got the real housewives of orange county trying to convince bronwyn that she's not an alcoholic and you got the rest of us sitting over here like what. What are you idiots fighting over k. Do you try and tell the mailman. He's a mailman. You're alcoholics okay. Do your jobs less talking more. Drank he here here here here if we had if we had like a good old fashioned like golden girls mom's earthy monologue clap would be right there and when i can figure this thing out i will move to that button so another thing that happened. So the massive fight between candice amani that sent to'mix ratings through the roof which just goes to show that audiences crave conflict so as a result bravo will now be rebranding top chef as the gail simmons thunderdome of ham my head teddy mellon campus fired in public. Outrage breakout over her diet. I mean people were really furious when they found out that customers were getting thin with starvation. Lots of exercise in a crazy woman bullying them day and night. Berating them for their food choices. They called it all in with teddy. I called it my child head
RHOC Star Braunwyn Windham-Burke Comes Out as a Lesbian
"The learning and welcome to daily pop. Get ready for a huge show today. We've got shocking secrets from the one and only jennifer lopez miley cyrus. Oh and brittany ambience. Say wow the real housewives who revealed she's a lesbian but she is not going to leave her husband. That's right orange county house. Bronwyn windham burke has been married for over twenty years. She and her husband had seven children together and she's currently dating a woman in an interview with glad. She admitted she was a lesbian and said her husband actually knows the woman she is dating. Bronwyn is still living with her husband and kids implants to stay married so so oh what's her breakfast and seeing this one eight we are in different world. How does this work. How do you stay married when every year wife is dating women. You know what these people have been married for over. Two decades have a weird feeling that he probably sensed something. Like this was going on. I don't think you be married to somebody for twenty years and not at least know that there is an inkling and i will say if you watched the show there are little tidbits here and there that would let you know. Maybe this woman does like women kind of watching her interview and she said that that kiss with tamra She said that was her way of kind of like the waters a little bit like wanting to see what her friends her family her cast would say or think if she wanted to come out because she says she realized that she's always liked women. She's never liked men. I mean she clearly likes them enough to seven children right. That was that was like that was my pick up on it. I think in. You're probably right. Like i don't think you can go through life and be with somebody twenty years in and out and have seven children with them and not suspect something like that but also it could be something that she really did. Keep hidden seven. Kids is no joke. That is a that is a. I mean not to say that that women who are in lesbian relationships don't have children but to do it in a heterosexual marriage for so long and then to kind of one day. Be like you know what. I'm actually going to try this. If i wouldn't be surprised if he's shocked scenario she explained. So she's right now. They're living in the same house writing a separate bedrooms her. She's all friend is comes over and has dinner with them and she says it's as weird as you make it. I think there's a little bit of truth to that. I do too. But let's rewind again and if you watch the show you realize that this person is dealing with sobriety issues and party with sobriety is getting to the root of the sobriety issue and for her. The root of the sobriety issue was that she was living a life that she was not truly hers so she was moving it with alcohol and going on these vendors and having children to stay sober so i think for her husband he realizes that this is not really about him that this is about her and her health and what she has been doing and how. She's been killing herself to hide the secret in it's really set. I will say. I'm not gonna lie if i was her partner if my partner would do this and say oh my god. I've been attracted to women this whole time. I would truly be confused. i would. Yeah that's not easy. That's not easy to go through. That would question every single thing that we've been through this for twenty years if you can sit there. Are you going through the motions with me. What is going through and then on top of that okay. So yes so. We're talking about her husband. Her husband is clearly okay with it for now. I do feel like this is a for now situation because not just for her husband to see her relationship with women and whatever but let's say the woman that she's dating. I mean eventually the woman that she's dating my want a more secure commitment. You know not just be the woman that is in this like marriage as kind of the side piece maybe more. Maybe not i mean this could be her first real encounter with like a serious. You know homosexual relationship. And she might feel like you know what this was the start of it. This isn't what the person i seen myself with like. I don't think the first person that she's going to date is the person that she's going to ride off into the sunset with. She does find that person. Then i think probably no. But then i think ultimately she doesn't stay married. I think she's really. I think what justice that is correct. I think she's been with a man for twenty years. she's had seven children. She's been dealing with sobriety. She has not been sober. She's recently gotten sober. She's getting to the root of why she's been massing all of these emotions which is a heavy burden to hold for that long and she's probably just saying this is my journey now. This is what i'm going on. I'm with somebody. My husband's being supportive were all adapting to this. And we'll see what happens and that marriage might not stay intact. And i don't think it'll be a shocker. Yeah i mean i mean. I commend them for the young kids. I mean the youngest ones tissue. I've to that's an issue to joe if i'm getting into this relationship with this woman and by the way this is your first relationship with another woman and you have small kids like that. Of course i'm gonna let your husband stay in house and care for those kids. I didn't sign up for seven kids. But the other thing is and i love my lesbian systems out there and what i'm about to say i know gay men half to. I'm going to tell you what your fault is. Lesbian women you always wanna turn somebody. Lesbian women love astray wherever they love to turn. They love to show off the new turn and it never works out for them. And it's it's it's a thing it's a thing that they do but you don't think brian wins being turned right i think she's came to this revelation herself by the way. It's always want what we can't have so for a partner woman to be in love with another woman and she still be married. Be with her husband. It's intriguing taboo straight or whatever located it's complicated
MedTech Talk Podcast
Breaking Through at CVRx
"Welcome to the MED tech talk podcast your host Pardo and I'm very excited to welcome the deem yard CEO CRX to this edition of the podcast Nadeem has had the lustrous career starting at GE and then his GM of MEDTRONIC's navigation business but his biggest and most important challenges come CPR which we're going to focus on today for full disclosure. I've had the pleasure to get to know Nadeem over the past eight plus years, and for the last four I've been on the beam sport and killed as an investor in Cebu. Rx. and. I'm really looking forward to the conversation today. Deem it is great to have you on cats. Thank you jeff it's great to be with you today. Terrific will good what we have a lot of things to cover today and really want to focus on CBS which is turning into I think an incredibly exciting story. But of course, their their roots to the CRX story and maybe you can take us through that a little bit the genesis of. Both. The CRT is therapy in heart failure but also barracks. Absolutely Jeff. So I talk about heart failure it is. A devastating disease. Very expensive from a cost perspective, but also from the human side of things, patients unfortunately suffering from heart failure, end up having those episodes of congestive offense way as they feel that drowning, it's like a continuous waterboarding expedient just how painful that is right and unfortunately one of those episodes could lead to their death and. In the United States hot figure is the second most expensive disease. If we consider cancer as one disease, if you stopped separating cancer between breast cancer by cancer sets that hot figure becomes unfortunately the most expensive disease in the US. What is hot forget? It's. When the heart over the years of. Insult or injury to starts becoming larger the walls of the heart becoming thinner. And the heart's ability to pump blood to the system is compromised. And that's. Compromise happening in multiple forms. One of them is called synchrony when the left side and the right side of the heart start becoming disconnected from each other. So think about it like a car. Engine where have the cylinders not kill into properly? Than the COD would not produce horsepower that you need. You need to tune the car that is what's Artie Cardiac. Surgery synchronization therapy. Was designed to do they. You know put two pacemakers right now it's only one pacemaker with two wires. That's why they call it by basic they based both ventricles and they tried to synchronize the left and right side. That works wild if the heart is distinct honest. However in heart failure. Only thirty to forty percent of the patients have synchrony. That s of the patient's heart become lodged the world's thinner. But the left and right sides are still beating in harmony but not strong enough. And for those patients, unfortunately crt devices did not produce the results that WHO, hoping for. Ten fifteen years ago when we're testing them. And that is where our approach berry. Flex. Therapy comes into play. The genesis of this therapy goes back multiple decades not gonna go to the whole history with Dr Professor Bronwyn than his wife and everything, but nevertheless indie. Let me take one paper from Dr. Abraham. From nineteen ninety nine and that is about CRT devices. In this paper that was published in the New England. Journal of Medicine Dr Abraham demonstrated the sustained. That's or the sustained benefit of CRT. Comes from the fact that when you should denies the left side on the right side of the heart, the pulse pressure of the volume of the blood leaving the heart. Activates the Beverly Flex. In the cutouts dodgy. Trusting. Right. So those patients with this synchrony, you recent combined the left and the right. Now you're sending a pulse pressure strong enough you activate the battery flex let a convoluted way to do it. How did you see that actually signed to do it well? Alex secrets wandered in the body we went with a Wyatt directly into those better receptors in the. Wall and activate though cells. Jackie with. Why go all around right now, our device would work in all forms of heart failure, but we have to go in developed the evidence one by one and demonstrates and in our first. Quote Unquote. beachhead strategy. We selected a large segment of patients who are not able to be treated by CIT devices. Why not the eligible for Siasi devices? Those patients are those who do not have distinctly. Right. So they left the right side of the heart beating in synchrony, but heart is not strong enough. The walls fin the muscles of the heart are tired at the. Pump, the blood.

Dressed: The History of Fashion
Fashion at the Oscars, an Interview with Author Bronwyn Cosgrave
"Here to talk about the Academy Awards wisher just this past. Sunday right casts. Yes now I get to talk about all things red carpet I mean. This is arguably the Oscars arguably the most highly anticipated of all red carpets throughout the year. So you know we're here to talk about the Academy Awards and the Academy. Awards is the annual event of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences which is an organization established by among others American Phil Magnet Louis. B. Mayer who was co founder of the Metro Goldwyn Mayer Studios and it was founded in nineteen twenty seven and the academy originally had about thirty six members and that included quote unquote. Hollywood royalty like Douglas Fairbanks and his wife at the time. Mary Pickford and the Academy was really focused on promoting the Hollywood film industry at a time when it was not yet. The nationally internationally celebrated epicenter film production that it is today so the Academy Awards. Ceremony was instrumental in helping establish. The Hollywood film industry's reputation by celebrating. Its achievements across five branches so giving awards to producers actors directors writers and technicians and the First Academy Awards was held in Nineteen Twenty nine and unlike today it was not a broadcast event but was rather a ticketed private dinner that was attended by two hundred and seventy invited guests and this was held at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in L. A. Dismay will mark ninety one years since the Academy Awards debuted on May Sixteenth. Nineteen twenty nine and things. Well you could say that they've changed just a tad today. The Academy's membership has blossomed from thirty six members to somewhere close to a thousand and from its original five branches. It now has seventeen. Over twenty million people across the US tune into the Oscars each year and has really become one of the most highly anticipated televised award shows of the season and millions of us tune in just for the pre show. I would argue and we do that because we WanNa see our beloved movie. Stars walk the red carpet and why can only be described as high style? I mean so. Central is celebrity dress to the Oscars that the pre show is televised live so that viewers like April and I am Oliver Address. Listeners can get up close views of their favorite celebrities attires before they even take their seats so talk show hosts interviews stars about what they wear while others give a play by play in studio and you know on various platforms across the Internet. I know I shared all of my favorites on instagram. And the revelry all things Oscars fashion does not end here of course in the days and weeks that follow as in every year a ceremony and special edition magazines will be printed that are dedicated to this red carpet fashion and of course the Internet will be aflame with talk of the best and worst dressed. Cast we've come a long way from that very first private dinner in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine and this has sparked our curiosity about just winded. The Oscars become as much about fashion as film and I started to research this topic and kind of dive right in but it was not long after. I began Researching that I came across. Bronwyn Cost Grace Fabulous book made for each other fashion the Academy Awards and of course I reached out to her and I am pleased to say she is joining us here. Today Bronwyn welcomed addressed Bronwyn. It is such a pleasure to have you here today. Welcome dressed thank you cassidy. I'm a huge fan of dressed. So it's lovely to be with you. Thank you so much and I have to say that we're here today. Because you wrote this fabulous book and I'm sure you've done a lot of interviews about red carpet fashion because of it your made for each other fashion and the Academy Awards. It's such an incredible book. You have this Great Inc. A primary source materials quotes newspaper clippings. And then there use these vivid descriptions to bring these nights and events to light and I just want to read a little bit from what you wrote about for the First Academy Awards which not aired because this is pre television but may thirtieth nineteen twenty nine for instance you write. A corruption erupted on the stretch of Hollywood Boulevard. Outside the Roosevelt Hotel just before eight PM at two hundred and seventy film industry. Silent screen notable slipped from a convoy of luxury automobiles and into its cavernous event. Space the blossom room. The Academy's prominent guests included Mary. Pickford NORMA SHEARER engine starlets Marion Davies and Joan Crawford. Lean and tanned. These actress lovely looked as delicious as their sugars. Spun Party Vapor a Waxed Candy Replica a Cedric Gibbons Golden Academy Award Trophy. So it's really these details that transport the reader back in time to that moment. So thank you. You must have had a wonderful time researching and writing. This book will thank you. I actually did not have a wonderful because I understand that because you know it's really it's really kind of you to notice the intricacy that actually went in to the writing of this book. The book took me three years and every single day of that was almost every single. Damn it was really one solid year of writing to the homestretch but for about two years. I scoured honestly. The world for information about what women wore the Oscars and my book really is about women and what they went through to get dressed and the great thing is that I did discover you. Know the bulk of that material in Los Angeles at the Margaret Herrick Library which is an academy library and a lot of it had never really been looked at and I'm also went to visit the great designers I went to the Dior Archive and John. Galliano actually called the archive and said you know. Help Bronwyn with what she what. She needs whatever she needs. Giorgio Armani also took it really seriously and help me. His team really helped me. I was very very fortunate. There's a great trust. One of my favorite dresses in the book is what we shall. Yo War when she was nominated for Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon and that dress was created from millions of Swarovski Crystal in Hong Kong by a very gifted designer named Barney. Chang and I what I actually noticed in the process of researching this book and why it took so long was that I kind of discovered a paper trail of identifying dresses and actually looking at the designer a designer attached to address in a caption say and looking at that dress in thinking that does not look like the work of say Howard greer who was one of the early costume designers and not all of the names turned up in in indexes for example addresses. So I really had to look hard and not believe what I saw imprint and that is something that I really noticed with fashion. History is that there will be a sort of myth associated with something. Say A design. Then it's not always the case and you really need to read between the lines and and go back to the primary source material and then to contextualized that all you know and put it in right into this story. This really captivating story. Yeah it's not an easy feat but you did it beautifully. Thank you but oh the one thing I will say about. That is that the book does also revolve around a celebration every year. So that really anchored the book the actual ceremony. Where you know. That was Super Fun. I watched every Oscar ceremony. That had been telecast. That was the first thing that I did so every Oscar ceremony that had been televised. Say I think it was like Nineteen Fifty. Four certainly the mid fifties onwards and really got to work with that material. Which was the fun stuff? Actually
Dressed: The History of Fashion
Fashion & Film
"Episode actually has been on my mind since our very first season and it combines both my passion and my career because today we talk about fashion and film and we actually thought this was a particularly fitting episode with which to launch season three seeing as it's February. WNYC which is an eventful month for fashion in film. We are currently in the midst of course of the International Fashion Week Circuit and the Ninety Second Academy Awards Air. Just this is past Sunday February ninth. Not that I've seen many of the Oscar contenders this year. But let's be honest. I mainly tune in to see what everyone is wearing. Yes exactly the same. Although I did watch rock man last night which I know I loved. You're so so on costumes. Were amazing. Customer agree on that yet and we actually got to see a couple of them in in person when we were in L. A.. Recently which was very cool but the Oscars is definitely one of fashion industries. Highlights of the year. You know. I think it's safe to say that. What celebrities as where to this star centered? Event is just as exciting as the awards. Show itself and I'm sure many of our listeners will be joining us in watching the pre show coverage where where we will get an up close and personal look at all the glamour shirt to be on display on this year's red carpets and speaking of red carpet April you and I both. It's had our very first red carpet experience last month when we attended the iheartradio podcast awards. Yes and I will have to. I have to say getting ready for that stuff. Takes a really long time. I had no idea. We're inheriting makeup literally. Our it was very fun. Yeah it it was very fun so you're going to hear a little bit more on our first fashion history mystery of the season where we talk about all things red carpet including our favorite picks from this year's red carpet and an interview with Bronwyn cosgrave. Who is the author of the book made for each other which is an in-depth behind the scenes? Look at the history the of red carpet fashion so the Academy Awards dates back all the way to the nineteen twenties but the first films are being made as far back as the eighteen ninety s so the movies being produced ladies for over one hundred and twenty years you know. I think we should probably preface this episode by saying this is only intended as an overview of very huge topic like Jain enormous topic. Yeah I mean it's so big that we've chosen to focus almost entirely on the relationship between fashion as as it relates to American Hollywood films and for the most part I mean there will be a few exceptions and even by narrowing our discussion. There are still so many fascinating winning stories and players involved with a subject that it is impossible to cover them all in one episode. And that is why we are bringing you to yes and as you said. Casas is a huge topic and there are many different angles which we could look at the intersections of fashion and film. Historically of course the most obvious one is the depiction of fashion in film and that is fashionable clothing as costume worn by characters in support of the visual narrative of any given plot and this fashionable clothing can be worn both in contemporary films. Those intended to be set within the time in which their audience are living now currently when interviewing them and also period films film set in the past so clothing and fashionable clothing at that is one of the most vital production elements in selling link any given period in history it is very central to the quote unquote look of a specific time and place and we have to give many a costume designer props further further historical accuracy over the years but April. I think you would agree that present day fashion is a pretty powerful force and even the best designers have been guilty of implementing unconsciously or not contemporary beauty and fashion aesthetics into their period costumes. So if you look at any number of the westerns from the nineteen sixties for instance instance set in the late nineteenth century. But I can't even tell you how many heating ladies in these films are costumed with bouffant hairstyles eyeliner. They're so good. You know not to mention that these electric colors of their bustle gowns so fashion in film and we're using the term film today because while the majority of the movies were talking about where filmed on film so fashion and film have been inextricably linked since the earliest days of cinema. The I motion picture films were produced at the end of the nineteenth century by the first decade of the twentieth film production had fast evolved into a mass entertainment industry tree. Hollywood obviously as we all know in Los Angeles California was epicenter and the home to over seventy studios and counting by nineteen fourteen and prior to the advent of film. Theatre was a hugely popular form of spectator entertainment. And it was thanks to this medium that that female audiences had long been accustomed to viewing their favorite theater actresses and the clothes they wore as the latest word and chic and and actresses wore high fashion on an off stage and we'll heralded as fashion icons in newspapers. Fashion Magazines and film would prove no different different with its bevy of Silverscreen starlets who would capture the admiration of millions of women audience goers all across the country so with the film industry fast on the rise in the early twentieth century. We see the debut of the first film Fan Magazines such as photo play and Motion Picture magazine. And both of these magazines presented actresses as this fashion trendsetters. And you WANNA go down a rabbit hole. You can go to media history project dot org forward slash fan magazines because they have a huge archive five of keyword searchable magazines on there. So have a blast so far but it will it will take up an entire afternoon. Photo play even had a regular column dedicated to fashion which often featured full-body photographs of actresses so as to best display their entire gowns printed in black can white though. These photographs were accompanied by text. That really detailed the gowns color and fabric for the enquiring reader actress Norma talmadge was featured so often in the fashion section in a photo play that she was even named fashion editor for a short time in nineteen twenty by emphasizing the dress and appearance of these early film stars. These he's magazines played a pivotal role in establishing film actresses as fashion icons. But you may be wondering who was dressing them today. We're all accustomed to the important role the costume designer and Costume Department and Film and Television Production. Obviously what would Miss Marvelous. Mrs Mazel be without Donna and her talented team of assistance. Cutters fitters Taylor shoppers. dyers agers the list. There are a lot the people helping out on those productions. Let's just say Oh. Yeah but actually in the earliest days of cinema. There was no such thing as a costume designer and thus no costume department dedicated educating to produce in costumes for a specific movie so according to costume designer and historian Deborah Landis in her book dressed century of Hollywood costume design. She's actually written quite extensively on the history of Hollywood design. So you're going to hear her name. Come up quite a bit so according to Deborah Producer Adolph Zuqar and director. D W Griffith were among the first to recognize the importance of and need for the professional costume designer. And this was in the nineteen ten's but we still do not see standardization cassation of the costume designer and department until the nineteen twenties so prior to this actors and actresses were largely expected to provide their own wardrobes for contemporary foams. With many I mean those who could actually afford it. I suppose many of these people work directly with their favorite fashion designers to create their specific onscreen. Looks for instance. Paul Poiret as you all know who we adore and love. He designed the period costumes for acclaimed actress. Sarah Bernhardt in the nineteen twelve French film. The loves of Queen Queen Elizabeth. It does not surprise us at all. That far was among the very first fashion designers to embrace the new medium of film as a way to extend. His influence is an advertise his brand although he would never admit it. Of course big neither would contemporary lady Lucille Duff Gordon. Who designed the gallons for the leading ladies for over twenty films between Nineteen Fourteen and nineteen twenty two starting with the perils of Pauline starring? Pearl White I love that AH film And in April nineteen eighteen vote dedicated to page spread to Lucille designs for actress Clara Campbell Young and the Nineteen nineteen eighteen film. The reason why which was written by Lucille sister the famed novelist turned screenwriter. Eleanor Glynn thanks to there's well known collaborations nations. I mean. Is it any wonder that Motion Picture magazine declared that quote motion picture actresses where the latest modes and they declared this in its September nineteen fourteen issue. The article goes on to say that quote women revel in the style of gown much better in the picture show than she can in the pages of some fashion journal but this brings up a very very interesting point April because we all know how quickly fashion can change and what was in fashion when you're designing and then shooting a film while it might have changed I by the time. The film was released six months to a year later. Case in point Lucille's designs for Clara in the reason why might have been presented by vogue as the latest fashions nineteen eighteen. But I know at least one of those designs came straight from her nineteen seventeen collections. Clair West one of the very first screen credited costume designers address address. This very issue in an interview with women's wear daily in December nineteen nineteen according to her fashionable film costumes reproduced thanks to new fashion forecasting which is fascinating. She goes on to say quote. It is particularly difficult to dress characters for the screen when one considers that the close not only must be up to date but they must be several months head of style and you know by designing for the future Claire and other costume designers designers of this time really consider themselves both costume and fashion desires case in point one month prior women's wear daily had interviewed West about the influence silence of Hollywood on fashion in an article titled Motion Pictures To Create New Fashion Center and at the time West was under a seven year contract with the picture and distribution distrubution company. lasky famous players company. Soon to be known as a name. Some of you may recognize paramount pictures quote as for the role which motion pictures plays plays and fashion resort. In Miss West opinion there is no limit West oversaw the designing and making of costumes for the entire film company. So this is no oh small order and she did this in a three story building devoted entirely to costume production just to give you an idea of the size of this costume. Department West fulltime fulltime team consisted of sixty five women including five flower makers ten designers. Numerous seamstresses to Taylor's staff hairdressers. There's a number of assistance quote in this way said West. We have the ideal conditions under which fashions should be created and created. Is the keyword right here because they were not buying you know off the rat clothing cast for both period and contemporary films. The majority of the clothes seen on the stars in Hollywood films were produced made to measure for them in
Dog King: King of the Dogs
"Today. We Find Dog King King of the dogs sitting on His throne gazing easing out at his kingdom. It was beautiful that morning shining and bright. Like a weld shooed. Bone the lovely trash and old boxes and mattresses that usually littered the alley kingdom were hidden atop at all like a layer of sweet frosting on a stale cinnamon bun from the dumpster behind behind the donut. Shop was a layer of snow it had fallen during the night laying down a few pillowy pristine inches soon own. It would be marked by paws and tales it would be stained yellow again and again and then trampled into slush for now though it was simply leap. Perfect it's so beautiful. World Dog King said climbing upon his dirty mattress thrown he had added a Grungy Green Green Garland to his cardboard crown and they both sat crooked on his shaggy head. Isn't it gorgeous buddy. uh-huh said pickles breaking through the snow like a newborn penguin. He shook himself from tip to tail wiggling and sending snowflakes flying. The A little Chihuahua was dog king's royal assistant but how much assistance he provided was up for debate. Easy for you to say Your Highness. sinus is right. You're tall and you have snow privilege. Dog Kings scratched at one year. And then the other relocating more than a a few families of fleas and what is no privilege. Well it's simple when you squat to pee. Your rile but doesn't as to the ground. If I was meant to be in the calls I'd have more for my great aunt. Norman now was a hairy dog. Looked like a wig. On a mission auto swear dog king laughed and pulled pickles out of the snow lifting him by the scruff of the neck. Like a mother would a puppy. He sat his shaking friend in his favourite flowered bike basket. It was propped up on some crates up and out of the snowy drifts. I will take curve it dog king said and then he started digging on one side of the alley. His big shaggy pause moved mounds of snow with every scoop. Hey John King said Rambo the pit bull had just walked into the alley dragging giant gnarled log in his teeth eighth. Are you digging. I love a good dig. He got room for one more. Come on in said Don King. The digging is fine. Oh boy said Rambo leaping in and out of the snow bouncing on his paws on mcgibbin ticket revving up. I'M GONNA tunnel straight to Australia over here. Snow Rambo eventually stopped fighting the snow and started helping dog king. More dogs talks began to trickle in and some help dig kicking snow wildly and taking the occasional frenzied bite. Soon there was a clear patch of ground and the short dogs were able to conduct their business without freezing their tails off. Thank Christmas said pickles. Still Shivering I thought it was going to be more and more dogs arrived and dog. King took his seat on his throne tongue. Long lulling and snow stuck all in his coat making him look like a mangy polar bear or maybe a cloud that got into the garbage. So ooh what's on the royal scheduled. Today he asked this morning work decorating the alley pickle said it's going to be so pretty perfect and then the party. Yes party lights. Pickles started to a shake with excitement his little body trembling like a snowflake in the wind and the stuff and the square. Sweet Georgia Brown.

Some live nearby like dog king pickles and others had homes around the city but they all came for the holiday party. Everyone was especially excited because this year for the first time they were all getting together. Early to decorate rambos giant logs started the pile but it was only the beginning. Pickles Nichols and Annie dragged in a mostly Green Christmas tree. Broadway brought him minora with mismatched candles. One of which looked suspiciously like a hotdog. Other other wrecks brought candles of his own and Luke the golden doodle brought a small drum that he had chewed up only a little just around the edges on and on they came laden with holiday supplies or food or both there were down. Nations with decorations. Pekingese steeping steeping. Tease retrievers Corgis in oodles. rotties and Beagles and poodles. There were Matz as big as reindeer and Mutt so small they could could fit in a gift box. Broadway came with a Cask of hot broth tied around her neck and she was pouring it onto lapping tongues with bad accuracy but good reviews dog. King patted down the alley to where a group was talking. Garland and Crown wobbling atop his royal head. He accepted did a mouthful and apple and knows full of hot broth from Broadway and stood with his friends. So what's with that. Big Log brought sugar pie. The Saint Bernard asked Rambo. That's a yul log. Rambo replied my mom's. Take me to the woods every year and we burned in one with a bunch of their friends. Altogether I get to chew sticks and last year I almost caught a squirrel.

There are presence. I wake up everyone else and we all sit under the tree and open in our presence together as a family a lot of the other dogs new Christmas and thought it was a fun day but they were divided on wrapping paper half thought that tearing it open was the best part of all and the other half thought it crinkled in a way that was entirely too spooky way do Hannukah said Bronwyn and others around.

Eritrean delegation in Ethiopia for peace talks
"You're listening to news ethiopia and derek trae oh two countries in the horn of africa who in the late nineteen ninety s four the bloody border war claimed the lives of as many as one hundred thousand people they have never made their peace with the border dispute unresolved but today ethiopian and eritrean flags for student the root for madison out of their airport to the city centre for the arrival of a high level eritrean delegation amid hopes of a breakthrough in one of africa's most intractable conflict sits be made possible in part by ethiopia's new prime minister abby med who in a dizzying pace of reform since he took office this year as also agreed to withdraw ethiopian forces from a contested territory on the border with tran let's be bronwyn bruton deputy director of the atlantic consoles africa center so is this some possibly the end of the border dispute you know i i personally think at the end of the border dispute is inevitable at this point because the border dispute with something that was kept alive by by primarily melissa now the old ethiopian prime minister before his death and bias small to gray and elite after his death and that elite has lost power and i think for the rest of ethiopia there's not much of a logic to continuing the border war and certainly our trade is eager to put an end to all the suffering that's been occasioned by ethiopian occupation over the years so it's not as advanced med has to take ethiopians with him if he is to settle this dispute for the most part no i mean there's certainly a powerful faction of people inside the opium who will object to this i think the challenge for all the is going to be that from the airtran perspective they don't know him wealth and so they're gonna want to undergo a process of getting to know him getting to know what his views are on the border but more than anything else i think they're going to want to see that the shift of power that's taken place in ethiopia is adorable one that position is firm that the tegray and elite is not going to come back into power and re start the war basically that all of these these trauma and is political reforms which really means redesigning the entire system of government in ethiopia is going to happen because that's what's required for peace between the opium airtrek i it's not a matter of simply pulling troops over the border it's it's a long longstanding disagreement over the way that the opium has segregated south necessity and that needs to be resolved in order to really have a piece and that's gonna be a long process you talk about very trains tried to get to know abiotic med assigned safa work the era trendy arabia med two very different people want an crash the other arguably a democrat yeah that's right i mean be all bad is he's just done an amazing job since he came into office but it is important to thank back about how he came to power and he came to power on the shoulders of these romo protesters who were largely ucs you know they're they're young teenagers essentially who blocked the roads into addison baba enforced the e the opium government to release a slew of political prisoners to put aubin pow or and then to undertake all of these reforms and he's doing this because his authority rests on those protesters and so if he doesn't do what they want then i think you'll lose power very quickly from when bruton wti.
