"Was the deadliest day for american troops in afghanistan in a decade two explosions ripped through the crowds outside the kaaba airport. And it happened just hours after the warning. We told you about yesterday when the us and other governments warn people to leave that area because of terror threats ultimately thirteen american service members were killed and eighteen. Were hurt on top of that. The blast killed at least sixty afghans and heard at least one hundred and forty of them. The explosions happened outside the gate. Where huge crowds of people are screened for bombs and weapons before moving forward to get on an evacuation flight. The isis terror group claimed responsibility for these attacks. The taliban who recently took control of afghanistan were not thought to be involved they condemn the attack in fact the taliban and isis are considered rivals not allies and right now at least experts say. Isis is the bigger threat to america's efforts to evacuate people from the country. Top military officials say they worry about more attacks still flights taking off from the kabul airport just with more security. The us has evacuated about one hundred thousand people so far and has promised to keep flying. Americans in american allies out. Buff ghanistan up until august. Thirty first tens of thousands of afghans who qualify for special immigration. Visas are still waiting to be evacuated as well as hundreds of american citizens.

Us were lowered to half staff to honor the bombing victims. Both us military and innocent

Demonstrations have also taken place in Melbourne and Brisbane. 14 million Australians are under strict stay at home orders as the authorities struggle to contain a surge in Delta variant. In fact, Our correspondent in Sydney, Phil Mercer told me more about the protests. The New South Wales police minister is a man called David Elliott. And he says that there were 3.5 1000 very selfish. Boof heads on the streets of Sydney today, buff head is an Australian colloquialism. Meaning idiots, and I'm sure that there will be many millions of Australians in lockdown who will agree with those sentiments? Clearly, there is frustration in the community. There is anger. There is uncertainty. There is on fear as well concerned about the slow rates of vaccinations in this country, but most Australians are pretty compliance. Trying to do the right things. So the authorities very concerns about these events in Sydney today and in Melbourne and Brisbane Health officials saying that these large protests in those three Australian cities will put lives at risk.

League of Legends Patch 11.7: What's New?
"With that. Let's get to our main topic for tonight. Which is patch eleven point seven. We're going to highlight some of our changes that we want to call out here. I'm going to kick it off. I usually throw it to one of you guys. I'm changed i'm going. I deal with it. My favorite change this by far. Is that a mugabe buffed. And he got buffed in a way that is actually relevant to letting him be a champion again. Because momo got a second cooldown removed off of all ranks of his tantrum his e that is enormous enormous clear. Speed improvement his e refunds. Half a second every time he gets hit by anything. So reducing that base down creates this like feedback loop where you just get more and more tantrums. While you're clearing. That is way more of a clear speed buff than it seems just knocking second off one ability because of how that works with the refunds the sooner it cools down the sooner you can refund start the refunds again on your next casting. You just keep getting more casts. Yeah i recognize that that some single mothers. that's actually good strong. that's specifically the reason. This is such a big deal as this significantly buffs his clear speed. It does almost nothing to his ability to fight champions. Yeah it's pretty scary though. 'cause having a move in the game with that huge. Aol stein is just. It's a little scary for team fights for sure. And i'm highlighting him here because i think our listeners should be playing a moma if you get in the jungle. He's easy to play. He's extremely effective. And just got a massive buff.
The Lost Cause Myth: The Civil War and Slavery
"High school was ninety nine percent black but we had a white. Ap history teacher. i can't remember her name. I just remember that. She always had a really nice manicure like she had those long nails. In like the most beautiful chris writing but i remember when we got to lake the civil war unit in our american issue class. She was like okay first of all. They're people who we're going to tell you that the civil war had nothing to do with slavery that is a lie. It absolutely had something. Maybe they're gonna talk. They're going to blame it on states rights to blame it on heritage. That is not true absolutely had something to do with slavery. I remember to sitting there being like like like. Why is he talking about. It was decades decades but it was a wild later until i finally heard about this thing called. The loss caused the last. 'cause myth is this idea that the civil war at least from the point of view of the south had nothing to do with slavery that it was about state's rights that southerners were just trying to protect their way of life that they fought honorably and righteously. They were trying to protect their families from this war of northern aggression and that robbie lee who was the head general for the confederate army's was seamus perfect. Gentlemen he didn't even want to fight the civil war in it. Tore him up inside to be doing this. And oh by the way sleigh. Wasn't even that bad. And enslaved people in the south were treated well by their masters and there were loyal to their masters. and that they even fought alongside the confederates. It's a way of buffing and smoothing out all these ugly realities of what slavery actually is into the glossy gone with the wind myth. It's like that's easier to believe right. Yeah that's easier to believe than to think like such horrible horrible. Inhumanity happened right. And you know i've been thinking about the last 'cause lately because on january six we saw confederate flags in the capital in that was truly shocking and then a couple of weeks later i was growing on twitter and i was really struck by this video as we continue our focus on most interesting new books. Cbs navien this guy named ty sidley. He had been in the military for about thirty years. He taught history at west point and he had just retired so we can finally speak his mind in full. And he's talking about how he grew up in the south and had grown up believing in the loss kaz and how robert e lee was his hero until one day he had this revelation that robert e lee was a confederate trader. He was a cruel and someone who believed deeply firmly and really is entire life that human enslavement was the best social system for the south. The result of that work. His new book robert l. e. n. Me and how old was he when he had this revelation. Did you get a sense. He was like forty years old and had a phd in history. So why did you want to talk to so many people like talking about disinformation right now. And whether it's cunanan whether it's believing like the president really won the election you know all these like we're conspiracy theories and we talk about it in this way like it's it's a new thing but you know the loss. 'cause myth is nothing if not like a huge disinformation campaign. And so we've been here before and we also know that it's really hard to have a functioning democracy when like significant portions of the country. Like can't even agree on basic facts and like one of the most basic facts is like. Why did we fight the civil war. And so like if that's the case then like we have to get a lot of people white people to like wake up and just admit. The civil war was fought because of slavery. How did we get white people to dislike. Get on the same page and here was a white person who went through. The problem has done it. Yeah
How to Fill a Few Seats At The Cinema? Rent Them to Gamers
"March in the early throes of the coronavirus pandemic. We brought you a story about how a devastated movie theater industry found a glimmer of hope by turning to that old american classic the drive in movie theater that hope was short. Lived though as many drive ins were forced to close because of stay at home orders in some cities and cold weather and others. But now there's another small light at the end of the tunnel for an industry. That's been gutted by the pandemic this time. The story starts in south korea with movie theaters around the country closed or operating at a limited capacity and film releases largely on hold due to covid south korea's largest cinema chain. Cg v had a bright idea. the company started renting out. It's largely empty theaters to folks who might enjoy the use of a big screen and surround sound. You know video gamers gamers. Pay up to a hundred and thirty five. Us dollars to rent out a theater. Video games consoles and controllers not included and renters. Told the bbc that gaming in theaters pretty cool the sound quality is top notch and the graphics are almost lifelike turns out a. Us theater chain was already on the gaming in the theater trend after a gutting year for the cinema industry most us movie theaters shut down in march early on in the covid. Nineteen pandemic and while some chains opted to carefully reopen some locations. Last summer those were shuttered again. In the fall when cases spite put simply putting up two hundred people in a room while they sit on coke munch on popcorn at the screen. Well you know. It's just not safe so malka theaters which operates thirty-six cinemas in the southern. Us rolled out. Its malko select gaming at several locations. Last november up to twenty gamers can book a theater for one hundred and fifty dollars in play until they drop or until three hours is up. Whichever comes first. i'm thinking it might be. The latter malko also allows customers to book private film screenings for up to twenty people and sells food and beverage packages alongside the reynolds malkhaz twenty twenty revenue down ninety percent from twenty nineteen thanks to the covid nineteen pandemic and while renting out theaters to gamers film. Buffs is one way to avoid closing down completely. It's not making the chain much money. Karen melton malkhaz vice president and director of marketing told the bbc quote. It's gaining traction and becoming popular but nothing is adding to our profitability at this point on quote and that's the harsh reality for many theater chains. Amc theaters has spent much of the pandemic on the edge of bankruptcy after revenue fell ninety one percent. The chain managed to raise over nine hundred million in new equity and debt capital rap reported. The injection allows the chain defend off bankruptcy for now. Amc started renting private theatres last fall at around ninety nine dollars a pop for screenings though not for gaming although for an extra hundred bucks you can score a microphone to welcome your guests. Meanwhile screen rental from rival cinemark costs around one hundred dollars another chain. Alamo draft house offers private screening starting at three hundred dollars which includes tickets and food when you think of the average pre virus movie screening with around two hundred customers paying an average of a little over nine dollars for a ticket. That's eighteen hundred dollars that the theater brings end before even popping a single popcorn kernel at the often pricey concession stand private screenings and video game parties just can't cut into all that red still on the horizon for cinemas is. Well what is that. Hope as a million americans received the covid nineteen vaccination each day some theater chains are cautiously reopening at diminished capacity. Of course most amc theater locations are open in accordance with state and local guidelines and malka reopened several theaters in late january and earlier. This month of course strict guidelines are in place for one you can say goodbye to endless soda and popcorn refills and in theater service but still after the year that the cinema industry has had anything is better than nothing. Even if at anything involves a little. Mario kart
Monster Hunter Rise on Nintendo Switch
"First we're going to dig into the big monster. Hunter rise game for nintendo switch which launches on march twenty six. Now full disclosure. I'm just getting into the series myself with monster. Hunter is dying to learn more about the game from all of you expert. So mike and you're before we get into munster specifically. How would you describe the series. Maybe the basic gameplay to people. Who might not be as familiar with it serb so the way that i would take. This one is action. Rpg's series play it. Solo better played with friends. Go up on locally. Which you're going to be doing is taking down. Big mosser's variety weapons. Once you defeat those monsters the items of drops that you get will help you build new new weapons new armor and other items to help take on even bigger threats so a lot of battles lot of co-op and a lot of fun and i had a lot of fun playing with you guys and in the demo. Yesterday we took some time to run through a couple of the The missions and one of the things that jumps out to me right away as course you can just jump right in and start running with france and enjoying the game but there is a lot there. There's a lot of systems you know. It seems like the more you play it. The more you realize just how nuanced it is in the more there is freda to master. I guess definitely. It's a very easy to start like. Most aims swinging around a sword or shooting weapon but there's a lot of systems in there could be tricky but once you get the hang of the flow is fantastic. Yeah there's there's definitely a lot of depth to the combat in particular Yeah like mike said it's a it's an action. Rpg so equal parts of each side right so on rpg side. You're building out your character with With equipment but on the action side Yeah we're we're. We're definitely proud of the the work that our team in japan has put into this. Oh absolutely i know that. This series has a a huge kind of core following the of super fans and stepping. And i know that you've been one of them for quite a while. So what is it about this game. That air this series. That just really appeals to you. It's just one of the most rewarding games i've ever played. I typically at least you know historically really enjoy games for a story and world building an exploration and while that stuff is part of monster hunter. It really turned me onto playing games for skill in in a way that i hadn't really considered or thought i was interested in before because it really trains you to be super observant and pay attention to the monsters and really get a feel for what they're doing and how that's gonna affect your way of interacting with them and china strategize against taking them down because it really is super different with each one. It's not just how they move but they can do to you and how you can use the world to your advantage and things like that feel smart when you play yeah you know from my newbies perspective. When we tackled some of the the monsters yesterday it was a big encounter like that kind of becomes like a a prolonged boss fight right and like i came in there and i was just use pretty quickly. I was hacking slashing. And i was you know healing myself. I needed to but you know i was kind of watching you guys to give me some tips and you guys were approaching it. Especially depending on what happens. You took and what your strategies were from very different perspectives. And you guys. Were kind of thinking about a lot of things that i wasn't quite thinking about yet so But getting to monster hunter is specifically for nintendo switch. What are some of the new features that that people who have played past. Monsanto games can look forward to sure so going to that one year recovering another one but i will take the wire bug which is probably one of the bigger ones You know everyone can choose their weapon but everybody gets a wire bug. Essentially what this is going to let you do is traversed the stage a little bit easier. The element of verticality is definitely leveled. Up for muslim is experience so instead of being sort of a flat field or flat plane can run up walls. You can run up. Trees buildings really explore the environment to take in more find buffs and items so on and so forth You can also use combat too so every one of the fourteen weapons has different abilities using these Or sorry a silk fine skills as all To take down the monsters and essentially have different angles or different Yeah chances to take down the monster so you you really throw me off balance. They're thought you're going to go with the dog thing. Did you just just pund us with the balance. The dog one go for you. Yes oh so. It must rise. We have the the debut of of power. Sorry pal moods which are canine. Which now you can you can take them on On the hunt with you alongside. Previously almost games in the series. Let you take a cat. Feline companion so now the first time ever. We're bringing dogs in so doug doc. People rejoice function a little differently too. So the salom you can actually ride as sort of like a mountain get around faster. It's more offensive has a little little ninja daggers. In his mouth and weapons. That can help back while the pallet goes a little bit more supportive. It'll sort of leave. Healing wells around the map for you to help you out. Do other things too. It's really up to your choice but i really really really liked That's my favorite. It's going to be hard not to pick that.
Mask Suppliers Want to Save N-95s for the People Who Need Them Most
"It feels like forever but it's only been about ten months. Since protective face masks became on vote or legally mandated depending on where you are last april the cdc recommended that people wear face coverings in public and retailers scrambled to meet the demand suddenly stores from abercrombie to wedding dress. Outfitter beholden were stocking their shelves with masks. But of course the face coverings vary widely in terms of effectiveness from very good at stopping the spread of covid to pretty terrible medical grade. In ninety five masks are considered. The most protective. They stop around ninety five percent of small particles from reaching the wearer's nose and mouth the least effective that would be those thin fabric buffs that people pull up around their faces. Sorry runners those face coverings are just not doing the trick. Double layered cloth face masks fall somewhere in between so in ninety. Five masks are the best. But they're in short supply last april the three company a handful of smaller competitors were producing about fifty million in ninety five masks month according to the wall street journal but with doctors nurses and other medical staff relying on in ninety five fifty million a month just wasn't keeping up with growing demand and now a steady rise in cases plus a new strain of the corona viruses driving that demand higher well a few manufacturers think they found a solution masks that are effective and relatively easy to make and targeted to the general population that leaves in ninety. Five's for the medical workers who need them. Honeywell which has been churning out in ninety five since the beginning of the pandemic has introduced a new washable mask. that's woven from polyester nylon and spandex. It comes with twelve replaceable filters made from the same material. That's found in in ninety five and it runs about thirty dollars. The wall street journal reported the three m company is started focusing on masks for everyday customers. They've made a stretchy reusable mask that's about as effective as an in ninety five. The new york city fire department said it would outfit. It's firefighters three m's new masks to avoid cutting into the city's dwindling stockpile of in ninety five's smaller companies like outdoor research have gotten in on the game two. They usually make alpine climbing gear but last year started producing both medical grade and use masks like they're stretchy mask. The comes with a set of replaceable filters that one will run you around. Twenty one dollars. You'd think companies devoted to stopping the spread of a deadly virus. Might not be thinking so much about direct competition. And you'd be right kind of three m and honeywell or two of around sixty mask outfitters. That have entered into an information sharing group. That's protected from antitrust scrutiny. The go share production pricing and distribution information. That gets more masks into the hands of more people faster. They may be working together. But don't let any of these companies catch trying to pass off their products as your own. Three m has sued a florida company. That produced counterfeit n ninety five masks with three m logo and tried to sell them to hospitals at a markup. That obviously did not sit well with three m or the hospital system. That bought the masks which may or may not work in protecting people from the virus.

Michael Lightner and his colleague Fabio Richland of the University of Salzburg in Austria Rewatched 20 matches from their local team. Red Bull, Salzburg. 10 from before the pandemic, with fans and 10 from ghost games without them as they watched the catalog players, emotional behaviors, things like whether a player yelled at the ref after a call or shook his head after missing a big chance. Overall, they observed significantly fewer emotional outbursts during ghost games. Richland has a theory why the fence like an amplifier in certain situations. If there's a foul or something going on, and 20 or 30,000 people screaming, then, for sure you jump up and yell at your opponent, and you probably do this less or a little bit less if there are no fence there. In fact, the emotional outburst that did take place in Ghost games tended to be less confrontational than in games with fans in attendance. The scientists also think home field advantage could be smaller. Without those screaming fans. Here's Lightner. There seems to be something making the way teams perform significantly better without the home fence. They'll tackle that question. Next. The current work appears in the journal Humanities and Social Sciences Communications. And while they know their study just looked at one team in one league, both Lightner and Richland say they wouldn't be surprised if the same was seen in other soccer leagues around the world.

"It's thursday. i'm gap. He's jewels jobs. We got so much stuff going on because mountie. She'll put your gino winning his first trophies manager. I think his first kofi ever i. We'll be joined by franklin buff to talk a little bit about that in a minute. Manchester united top of the league first time in january. First time since the sir. Alex ferguson era by your munich. Out of the german cups is i don't mean the be. Let's start with tottenham hotspur because we've been talking about their chances are they're going to be better worse than last year. How they're pushing. I feel like i've seen this again. I think they've dropped ten points from leading positions. They played fulham last night. You figure you know not easy but full no time to prepare as well. We'll get to that in a minute. And there's more count sempe gab. They take the lead the play well for twenty five minutes and then they stop the talking and they just want to protect that lead. They want to control the game to manage the game. But there's another hour to go. But he's not a bad idea necessarily when you've sawn and harry kane and all these counter-attackers but you don't even counterattack. You do nothing. You just sit deep and you just wait and we saw that against wolves. What wolf scored in the end we against palace. Guess what in the end and now we see that a home at home against fulham where you just stop playing hurricane. One sean tonga. The whole game. That's his goal twenty minutes in after that. Nothing just nothing and i just don't understand why i'm more for protecting your lead in the last ten minutes you bring another center box in or i don't know you you put back five and you you make sure that you don't leave to more space and etc but no one. There's an hour to go. Don't give not extra confidence to the opposition team. Don't invite pressure. don't let them play. I i take your point. I'm wondering if maybe this was a game. Where i thought was very good when he was on the pitch. This is maybe a game where i always mentioned him. But if you have a lasalle so that you can bring on that may be all of a sudden you can keep the ball more. You can keep the ball further away. You can be a little bit more balanced in in how you do it. You know rather than going. I mean if you're if you're just right now do you go and you knock it down. Levi's store and say look. Don't look at me. This is the best i can do in this thing. That's true i don't. I'm sorry. I don't think that's the best you can do. I don't know the price. I lease the last time i spoke to some of them. They were happy but since december the six when they went top of the table the seven in the league. They lost two hundred four. I mean this is. This is not good enough. This is just not good enough. And i think you could say your needs better player or you need different profiles there and they're still. I still think that he gets his wrong. That tactics is wrong because the pleasure doing what he says. he's saying. Okay win the lead saw against arsenal in a second of and they were up and that was fine and they managed to get out and okay good but as we said against war against pilots against on this. Just not good enough. I'm sorry you keep talking. Last night. In a game against tim against fulham who had played three days three days before with the strongest team in the africa because he didn't play again for another week.

I don't know many do interviews for two reasons. They difficult to organize time. Zones are a nightmare. And if I'm on they remind me a little work but my reluctance to do interviews were all per side. When I received an intriguing email desa slash madam? I am the Co Wolf over cry to Warsaw. My Co author and I would love to be invited to give an interview in your platform about African history culture and what inspired us to write this book book you say. We are both of African descent but raised in the UK. Hey I'm Nigerian and she is Ghanaian some background about it title a cry of war. It is an African book set set in the Thirteenth Century West Africa before slavery. Like me. Many Africans won the Africa looked like before any contact of the West. This book brings the lives of our ancestors back to life and retails a historical truth. In a fictional world it dramatizes the conflicts is politics triumphs and a number of west African kingdoms such as the Benin Kingdom the Canadian Empire the Marlene Kingdom and Falani people. The story stretches across country seas and continents showing the great variation in language customs traditions between tribes but also the unity a unity displayed by different characters to overcome adversity. Please see the attached press release and cover kind regards India Sina but he se what African History Tribes Tribes Benin Kingdom. Canadian Empire had to find out so off to some to and fro in and a little bit of organization in some a bit of calendar coordination. I finally pinned Nossa down and we sat down and had a conversation via skype. Now because this is an internet recording the audio is not up to my usual standards yet. They're upset I admit it. You know how precious am about my sound. But we had a great chat and I employ you to check it out in the background. Your head usual police sirens and chair scrapings that you get especially the police sirens that you get in any urban environment and yet you know guys. I live in the hood so it Kinda just is what it is our so kick back relax and enjoy the entity we kick off with me asking Nossa to introduce himself and to tell us a little bit about his background. A most of the Nigerian by origin. Both my parents on engines and basically by professional Mechanical engineer currently reside in London as I'm show levels in Asmara Astra was fascinated by African history and when the standing of our roots and so on and so forth and dot from windows I you know of a younger of a lot younger matijas. I've always gone to museums and try to try to understand Maestri predominantly being depending history. 'cause that's where my dad's and he's all of his his over the years he's told always made show that I was connected to it and he's told me stories about ancient kings ancient Obama's call them independently and and over the last few years before I wrote the book for. We wrote the book. We I was so explicit of European literature. So you had you had obviously the world of Isan Fly by Georgia in which gave us. Game of thrones you know we had lots of rating mutual which I was Mossy final when I was younger currently we have five kittens which is also huge. TV Show and Lots of books of the I would say European history and European mythology ball as much as liked books like those two. TV shows. I I don't feel like it does represent me as a person and and looking at my own history. There is amount of content in there and amounts of history dating back hundreds and thousands of years. I feel like there's enough enough said about it. There's no enough books written about today. But fictional non fictional dot obviously motivate it was to say h the. There's no there's no plano saying actually is not enough black African people right in we can actually take him also naturally affect the change. So well you know I I love fantasy fiction as well NYC I I. I grew up one of the first books I read as a child is quite funny story. So I'm undiagnosed dyslexic so at school. I had difficulty reading and they would always put me in the groups for everything so I was very frustrated because not because of the group per se but the advocates who in the group for read and write in I was in. Let's say it was a challenging group. Okay so we're going back a few years before they really got into. SPN and how to deal with autism and urges and so forth. But I would say looking back on it now. Those were the type of children I was in the room with and as a as a young kit hit. Probably like six or seven by remember looking around the room and my little brain going. I don't match what's going on in this room. I need to get out so I wanted to teach us and they said well when you're reading improves. We'll take you out so I remember. I went to the school library that day. In the first book I picked out was the hobby. I literally went in to find the biggest book I could find member. I'm like sixty seven so I pick out the hobby And I memorize the whole of with the first chapter. I sat down and I was like right. I'm memorizing this. Because because the words would dont when I read it live. So I've memorized it. That my answer. The next day I went in to school and I fake read the book by matchy reading from memory and enclosed in. Can you take out the class. And they shifted me up and so that kind of spooned one. It made me realize from a very young age. I was going to have to work really hard at this whole reading thing and the second thing is is it spawned the love of fantasy fiction because I fell in love with that book and I became a massive Tolkien Fan. I understood what of that. So the whole fantasy worlds on my red blood of the rings wizard of FC. And all of those books game franzen over so like the when I came across when you when I got your email and I saw what you dumb I was like. This is right up my street like someone has grabbed hold of the narrative even taken control of it and decided that they're going to do African fantasy and I couldn't drink anything. I'm not. How much history and in heritage is there to mine and explore like? Why is this not a thing? There's so much there with. We're looking at GOBLINS and wizards and made up lands when we actually actually have this rich pool of history to draw from and it's just it's in a in a weird way in a almost parallel. It's another resource us but it's one that hasn't been tapped on this one. You actually have like a clan. Run at a credible when Clare runner. So I think what you're doing green is amazing and I think the reasons behind why you're doing is amazing as well but a question I wanna ask you see your an engineering student by. Yeah in the new king's College King's college very prestigious university in the UK. Hey renowned for producing doctors people in the medical profession. So I'm thinking you know you're a young man you're surrounded by doctors. Medical Crew Students Yours Engineering. How did you make the leap from looking at you? Know Engineering Hot. Science Audience Numbers Fax Two right. I'm going to write a fantasy African historic credible way. How does that happen? At what point did you walk into a session. You're like forget this. How does that taught me free that process? Now it's funny. What's that cause someone else? The novel radiates via this guy. Nitric accident exactly question. I think like we all. We'll have some of our hobbies like we even though like you might be. You might find a banker who's interested in painting foods and same same way you'd find an engineer who's interested in rioted yet. I mean before that never eaten anything before. It was kind of my motivation for for doing it as I explained before was because I wanted to tell an African story Zayat made me think okay as an engineer. The way you go about solving the problem is I try.

I reached out to my friends at that was history for the brief. Answer on august twenty seventh of eighteen ninety six the anglo zanzibar war would begin at nine and end at nine forty forty-five east africa time it was between the united kingdom and the civilians in royal guard loyal to the sultan of zanzibar basically two days before the war the pro british sultan hamad bin died and khalid bin bar gash immediately took over as the new salton. The british did not like this at all. They had their own pick for sultan and they wanted to make sure that they air choice was the new sultan to maintain the pro british position in zanzibar. The british were also upset because the new sultan did not obtain permission from the british console before declaring himself the new sultan as a result the british presented bar gash with an ultimatum telling him to remove himself and his troops from the sultan's palace in stand bar gash did the opposite and barricaded himself inside when the ultimatum expired the british attacked the sultan's palace by the end of the forty five minute war five hundred bar- gashes men were dead in the british. The only sustain one wounded soldier out of the whole fight they quickly placed their choice of sultan into the palace and heavy british influence in the area would soon follow.

There's a huge difference between that and your leonardo davinci so the nuance here is that a polymath would have been a jack-of-all-trades master of some and therein lies the true key the polymathic mindset the way that they look at life the way they attack problems right so because of this mastery that they had What would happen is when they saw problem. It wouldn't it. Wouldn't just come at them from one one angle or from two. They could look at it from multiple angles all at one time and because of the mastery that they had in different fields they were able to see connections in seemingly unrelated topics. And because of that instead of just seeing multiple problems but they really did was saw the big problem as a whole and where the root of that problem came from and then they were able to tailor. The appropriate solution that allowed humankind to enter into new horizons. This ushered in a new era of understanding and invention and In it just brought humankind to new heights and so if we look at the way. Technology has advanced over the past. few decades. Information is coming at us at an alarming rate and the problems that we face today are far more complex and far more difficult and far more different than those that are fathers faced or grandfather's faced and with that calls for is a different solution ever since the industrial revolution. Roughly around that timeframe we the western culture has have focused on a a specialists mindset. A model math sticking to one thing and being good at that and working for a company for years and years and years on end will now as time has progressed. We're starting to see that. Technology is taking care of those more simpler tasks. And that would. People are really good at is getting creative and seeing things from differently. Different things and That's really where i feel. As though the pendulum is shifting from the model man to the polymath. You can find josh at the polymath. Man dot blogs dot com. That was a great explanation. Right if you want some more more information if you go to my website which is blackish after dot com link underneath this podcast episode. I'll take you to some additional learning and resources particularly useful for any teachers out there or any parents went into just learn a little bit more. If you go any feedback on that or you'd like to add something. Please give me a shout. I'm really open to providing resources to teachers and parents..
