What to expect from Amazon's 2020 Alexa bonanza
"Amazon's annual Alexa launch event is coming up on Thursday. And if it's anything like past years, it's going to be a busy day. I'm Ben Fox Ruben, and this is your daily charge. Joining me today is David priests, who covers all things Alexa here at CNN, Aman how's it? GOIN'. Doing. All right. How are you? Doing. Okay. So what are you really hoping to see tomorrow? What's what's your expectation from? Let's let's start with the echo up. Yes, sure. So, last year I mean this is an interesting year because last year you had sort of a shotgun blast of Alexa devices that we were kind of expecting to see you know we we thought we saw the echo show five come out during the summer we knew that they were going to be some speakers and displays that we're going to be rounding out their product lines. This year is not really the same. We already have you know multiple generations of displays and speakers. We already have the kind of baby bear Mama, bear, Papa Bear version of the display and the speaker. So everyone unconfined that just right device for them. So you know as far as displays speakers go don't think that we're going to see any huge revamps or huge surprises in terms of those devices what what we might see is. you know some added Polish or added features like we got with the echo dot with Kwok last year where they took an existing device and kind of added a convenient feature on top of it. Yeah one of the one of the few that they didn't update last year if I remember correctly was the echo spot, which is which is looking a little stale at this point. The thing is is that you could argue that the echo show the newer echo shows kind of replaced at. the other thing that you didn't mention where some of the mobile elements for cow so that Includes the. Auto. Hardware that Gizmo that you put in your car in addition to some of the weirdoes stuff like the glasses and earn ring like an actual ring you put on your finger and usually they they tend to have these types of oddball items whether it's a wall clock or microwave or ring so I would also expect to see some of those. Just they really loved like throwing Spaghetti on the wall I would I would share I are and one thing that's always interesting about them to. As you know, Amazon is really willing to you both abandoned device that's just not working. You know I remember testing out the original tap, which was you know Kinda got left behind. And that very well could happen with the echo loop or something like that from last year. That's the ring. Yeah. But also if if there's a product that they sort of throw out there and does stick to the wall, they're very willing to kind of lean into that and so if they're you know if they think the frames are doing really well, we could see some expansion of those products you know. So they're not just sort of limited release it sort of expands and gets a little bit more wide reach in their release or even new versions of them. Yeah. I'm kind of excited to see what they do. It's always it's always exciting and there's some surprises there. So do you think that the I've written versions of the story? In various times over the years do you think the lineup has gotten way too confusing like you talked about the tap, they actually discontinued the tap but like now they have like a very long list of echo items and some of them are really niche like the echo glow which I think is like a night light. So. So is it time for them to like shrink it down and kind of focus or you know they're just to keep doing what they've been doing, which is you know, let's throw out as many products as we can think off so. You know I think that there definitely is reason for them to focus their core lineup and I think they've done that with speakers and devices. And in a couple of other categories this while the. Euro. Stuff like that. So they have routers and they have the ring doorbells. So they have those core devices with with each of those properties and they have slightly different branding for some of them. But those those core lineups don't really get damaged or you know muddled by the addition of a bunch of extra things that they're trying out like echo auto and the frames and. you know the glow and things like that. So I think it's I. think that they have actually done a pretty good job of distinguishing between their core lineup devices that they're definitely going to be trying to get everybody to get during the holiday season and the ones that they're just sort of putting out there to see if there's interest if they want to expand it if people would buy if they put it out there.
Does Growing Almonds Really Waste Too Much Water?
"Friend recently related to me a conversation that she'd had with her Barista, a well-known coffee chain. The BARISTA's convicted that she always bristles when her customers order almond milk for their la tastes because she said growing almonds waste so much water. You may have heard similar things about almonds and their negative impact on the environment. For example, maybe you've heard that it takes a gallon of water to produce a single almond and perhaps like my friends Brisa. You've even been avoiding almonds or almond milk out of concern about their water usage but as is so often the case there's a little more to this story. It's true that almonds are a very water intensive crop but not really more. So then most nuts if we were all to switch to pistachio milk or walnut milk and prompting farmers to start growing more of those nuts instead of growing so many almonds, we'd still be using about the same amount of water. According to data published in the June twenty eighteen issue of the journal Science, the Non Dairy alternatives that have the lowest water footprint are soy and oat milk but not milk's still use significantly less water to produce then cow's milk and in terms of greenhouse gas emissions, almond milk may actually be one of the better choices because these trap so much co two in their leaves more so than other crops but getting back to water issues, the reasons that almond uses such a large share of California's water supply is that they make up such a large share of. His cultural economy. The growing conditions in California are perfect for almonds plus almonds are really high value. Crop farmers earn far more per acre growing almonds than they can growing other crops and demand for almonds has also skyrocketed in the last two decades in part due to a sustained campaign by industry groups to promote the health benefits of almonds. Commodity Groups that support almond growers have spent millions of dollars funding research into almonds, effects on cholesterol, appetite, blood, sugar, body weight, and so forth all in an effort to convince consumers that almonds are super healthy food and it worked although our consumption of other nuts estate relatively steady our intake of alms has. Over the last half century in addition to eating more almonds were also buying more almond butter, topping our salads with almonds baking with almond flour, and ironically even though almond milk doesn't really contain the same benefits as all men's it is also perceived as being very healthy and for consumers who want to avoid both dairy, and so the almond milk has long been the go-to

Can I use other people's recipes for my ebook for children?
"Chris, Calloway from Sydney Australia. I be listening to your show right from the beginning our unemployed. I did work in between I'm unemployed. Now again, I've tried several side hustles over the years I haven't managed to monetize. Miss yet I've tried a book club and Dane Grip I, had some success. I've started a youtube channel Foodie phonics, lessons, children, and have a few thought of his. What most recently have self published an evil children. My question is am I, able to use recipes that I find on the intimate and rename them for use in book at the back so that I can use the link for readers to contact me and the floor to your response to them. Thanks for gration cheese. Hey, thank you so much for listening. Thank you for calling in and good work on continuing to try different stuff. It takes a while and then that's that's okay. I love the idea of the Youtube Channel for food phonics lessons. Let's talk about your question. So can you use other people's recipes essentially and kind of rename them a bit It's a bit of a grey area because. A lot of recipes are are very common here. So there's not a lot of difference between let's say some standard recipes. Okay. But other recipes are created by chef. And there is proprietary work that goes into that. So the best safest answer is that you would need to contact the recipes author or creator for permission to use it in this way unless it's clearly something that is in the public domain. Okay now, that said, a lot of recipes as I mentioned are pretty simple. Okay. Are Pretty simple are pretty common or just handed down over the years and such. So if you're making souffles or castle as or something that's either complicated or somewhat unique, I was trying to think like what is unique to Australia and I did some googling and I read about fairy kick which I don't know a lot about even though I have been to Australia many times and love that country but very cake because the thing Australia. So anything that is complicated or somewhat unique. Where a chef is clearly create that recipe and that is something you definitely shouldn't borrow like that belongs to them however since so many recipes are rudimentary and copied over and over for those I think you'd be okay with putting your own twist on it and renaming it as you suggest except perhaps calicut half cows magical mackin sheep's. Or. farm-to-table Foodie phonics fruit salad I'm just providing some names here feel free to borrow these. You can still these or Foodie phonics vary bread maybe it's actually very bread not very kick now that I'm thinking about this more but whatever it is very bread you call it Cudi phonics ferry bread, and perhaps tweak the recipe a little bit i. think that's okay. That's a little bit different than just wholesale. Copying recipe somewhere and putting it in your own yearbook.
Episode 53: mediUSA Reduction Kits with Christopher Miles
"I'm so excited to introduce today's guest. Christopher Miles is the senior manager for clinical services at many USA he's trained as an occupational therapist and a certified in both limping Dima and wound-care. He has been working with patients to assist in managing chronic Dima for over eighteen years and currently his role as managing a team of clinical educators for many USA and also completing clinical education to direct hospital systems national and International Conferences Hi Christopher. Welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you so much, Betty I'm excited club join your pot cow. I am so excited to talk to you about the reduction kit. So many of my patients in the clinic won a single garment that can do it. All is the reduction kit, their answer. You know I wish that there was a magic pill for lengthy Dima. I've been working Olympia for a long time and I think everyone spent hunting for that I. Wish I could say the reduction kit will do everything I'm not gonna I'm not GonNa say that it can but it certainly can do lot. It's a phenomenal bandaged replacement system. So. Can you tell us how the product came to be and what inspired it? Absolutely. I would love to and it's always a great story share. So the reduction Kit is part of the circuit product line The cirque aid product line has been around for over fifty years in a way it was inspired. It was actually invented by a individual who was trying to find a solution to help his wife who suffered from chronic limping Dima. Anti came up with this idea when he was at the San Diego Zoo he noticed that drafts are very tall yet for some reason, they never have swelling in they're very skinny legs. In the reason they don't have swelling in their legs is because their skin is inelastic it won't stretch. It doesn't have the ability to give to excess pressure or fluid. So there's no swelling or. So we've that. Concept he wanted to create a garment that didn't stretch because up to that point all compression garments had been made out of elastic that we're very stretchy. So key. The first inelastic product actually a very crude on product that he designed was actually out of leather belts. But over time he designed and created the circuit blind, which is the combination of an inelastic product with inner juxtapose spans to allow patients to automatically adjust and apply their compression.

Moo-Dunnit: How Beef Replaced Bison on the American Plainsand Plate
"Nearly, all the hamburgers in America today come from cows that spend at least part of their lives on the Great Plains that famous open range in the. American. West. So that is where we will go to start our story today to the American West before it was American before Europeans and their horses started showing up there in the late sixteen hundreds. So before there were cattle and before kind of United States had control of the planes in the. West you had a variety of American Indian policies, groups like the Comanche themselves essentially a very powerful empire across the West and they were hunting bison numbers for that time are kind of hard to come by. But it's estimated that there were about thirty to sixty million bison roaming through the middle of north. America. These are big grazing animals and what they can do is they can turn the abundant grasses of the West into animal flesh which then hunter's. Can Eat and so they become the foundation of the economy whenever I'm in the same spot as a cow I'm always kind of amazed at how big they are. But Bison is a heck of a lot bigger and faster. They can run about thirty five miles an hour faster than most horses, and they can pivot on both front and back hooves and literally turn on a dime. These are terrifying and dangerous creatures. It's not the kind of animal you'd. WanNa meet on foot and other key thing about them is that they're herd animals. So they gather at times massive herds, massive herds that would have represented a very appetizing dinner plus some warm and sturdy buffalo-hide imagine writing towards a herd of kind of terrifyingly huge bison if you're safely on horseback but how did native communities had them before horses very carefully so you could really only do it in the spring or summer when Bison gathered together to mate. You would do it on foot and you could work as a group, but it was difficult. You couldn't really do it fulltime. You could hunt by some kind of part time before the Horse, the planes really belong to the. Bison. But we now think of as plains tribes actually lived on the edges of the planes combining a little small-scale hunting with some farming. But once you had horses than well-coordinated hunters could hunt the animals very efficiently. The horses came with the Spanish. The native communities got a hold of some of those horses and horses quickly caught on they even changed the politics of the region, the communities that had more horsepower like the comanche kind of took over and they. Would kind of dominate everybody else and basically built these very successful empires empires that were built on Bison, hunting them and trading them with European settlers on the east coast. So people like the Comanche Kiowa were very successful from horseback and they may have actually been causing slow population declines in Bison. The story I heard him school is that white people killed off all the Bison and the truth is they did but the bison were already under a little bit of extra pressure. Thanks to the horses that white people brought. But waited until the spread of ranching and Commercial Bison hunting from Euro Americans to really collapse and by one thousand, nine, hundred, there's only maybe three hundred bison left. The West from at least thirty, million bison to just three hundred and about fifty years that by some more systematically wiped out in only a few decades thirty million bison were eventually replaced by thirty million cows de Bison izing roses really got started in the mid eighteen hundreds when people of European descent or beginning to move out west of the plains and start settling there. It was all sorts of people particularly I when it was scale so When what is Texas belong to Mexico you had lots of Mexicans who are setting up ranch's then you've got kind of poor white settlers anglos coming into the region setting things up as the American civil war approaches you got people who are kind of second and third sons of wealthy southern plantation families who can't inherit the family plantation and so they kind of go west to a place like Texas to set up kind of these small scale ranch's. Looked out at the planes and they thought, okay there are huge rangy creatures that live there why not replace them with other huge rangy creatures but why didn't they just stick with the bison that were already living there bison meat is freaking delicious and there is more of it per animal because Beissner. Bigger and bonus bison more already perfectly ecologically suited to the native. Grasslands and climate conditions. That's a really interesting question. I've I've thought about it a lot because in some ways, bison would be a very natural animal to raise. But then when I was reading diaries and things, I found that these people they were kind of disgusted bison they didn't view that as an animal that could be farmed. They saw it as a wild animal. and. So what's interesting about that is on one level people go with what they knew. Euro. Americans know about raising cattle, but another thing gets into their ideas of what is civilized and Dave you. The Bison is not the kind of animal that a civil in their minds a civilized people would raise and so cattle is the way to do it. So why couldn't settlers just leave the? Bison alone race cattle separately well, they could but the animals can't live on top of each other. So if thirty million animals are occupying most of this land, it has to be taken another thing though is that the Bison of the foundation of wealth of native peoples and if the sellers want WanNa take control by force of this land while they want to eliminate the means of support. And the foundation of power of people like the Comanche and so they view attacking the Bison as a way of achieving their other goal, which is taking as much land as possible for themselves and for the United States and what's funny is that difference in cattle is what justifies to them taking the land but the similarity is what means they can be successful as ranchers that similarity between. Bison, and cattle at first these early cattle ranchers was small potatoes they in their cows were outnumbered and overwhelmed compared to the native people and Bison. Well, the herds were relatively small. It's kind of like a few hundred animals. So it's it's a few enough animals that you disarm people who manage them and kind of ride around taking care of them are the same ones who owned them. And it's it's pretty mobile. You know you don't have kind of official ownership of the land. You're just kind of occupying land where you don't find any other settlers and you're hoping that the nearby fort or the US military will protect you from violence even though you're of course, using land that other people live on like the Kiowa

Astronomers find possible sign of life on Venus
"In the clouds of Venus? Maybe a possible sign of life on the our neighbor planet. Astronomers using two different high powered telescopes discovered the chemical signature off Fost FINA gas. It's closely linked to life on earth. Researchers at MIT say some form of life is the most likely explanation. After studying in ruling out other possibilities, they concluded the gas Maybe coming from some kind of micro that lives in those clouds. Since probably wouldn't be little green men because it's like 900 degrees Fahrenheit. On the surface, Venus but kind of interesting that comes from like this. This gas Kind of similar to methane coming, You know, from cows and stuff like that. This comes from penguin guano and other stuff. Right? Rory? You were telling us about the penguin guano earlier. No, he's not there. I thought it was there. Okay? Yeah, like penguin guano on a couple of other things it's found on Earth and its associated with With life, and so they think there might be life there in those clouds. Pepsi, meanwhile, testing the
The Birth Of The Greenback
"Stacey next. Jacob Feldstein. Planet money author of money the true story of amid up during a new book. Say I. brought props for us to do the indicator. I say. That's been months. It's been. That guy's been honking hall eight months. I have props came over so I could give you these troughs. Okay. Go ahead and look at them. All right. Okay. So, this is like a really high quality xerox of an old piece of money. THREE DOLLAR BILL RE dollar bill that's really a real thing. There's like a a lady standing next to in like a ball gown standing next to a cow to I chose a cow to pander to you I do love a cow keep going. Okay. The Orange Bank It's orange because this from the orange. Bank and this is a one dollar bill. So Stacey, these are reproductions of real paper money that was printed by private banks in the United States in the eighteen forties and fifties. This is one of the most interesting periods I found in the history of money when I was working on my book, it's this moment when the United States government did not print money, there was in fact, no single national paper currency but if you wanted to. Open Up Stacey's Bank of New York and print your own paper money. You could. I don't know if I would trust that dollar from that. Was a real problem that was a real problem we'll get to that. I. Mean they were just so many different kinds of money at one point the Chicago Tribune counted eight, thousand, three, hundred, and seventy different kinds of paper money in America. This sounds very confusing for everyone involved this indicator from planet money. I'm Stacey Vanik Smith and Jacob. Goldstein can we make eight, thousand, three, hundred and seventy, the indicator? Yes. Today on the show. How can you even have that many kinds of money and also just what does it tell us about money works? Let's just go. Let's just go a block away to get away from the horn. Yeah.

So can we should set the scene here Jacob the nineteenth century America lots of is apparently also this was the era when gold and silver were money and Jacob say in the book that the government minted gold and silver coins, but it did not make paper money at that time. The exactly right. So the only paper money in America was printed by all of these different. Private banks people called paper money in fact banknotes, right. So they thought of it as like a piece of paper from a bank and they thought of paper money in particular as like a receipt or a coach ticket as as a thing that you could substitute for gold and silver, and in fact, if you look at at the bills I gave you all have this kind of. Writing like just grab a different one for fun. So we can say what it looks like. Okay. This is the stoning ten bank, a two dollar bill. There's a way. Moby Dick or something Wail Bell we've cow Bill Wail Bill So okay. So now look at the cursive writing see the cursive they're just blowers is stoning to. Two dollars to the bear on demand right and if you look all these different bills are different colors, they have different pictures on them, but they all say that will pay how ever many dollars to the on demand and so the second interest. Yeah it's an Iou because the interesting thing is it's telling you the paper money is not the real money. Right? They're saying we will give you two dollars in gold and silver for this paper money right? So the real money in this world is the underlying gold or silver the paper is just like. The Standard. So this is a time in history when there's not federal bank, there's not a national bank. There's like thousands of of little local banks and I guess all these banks can issue their own money. That's right and it's kind of evolving in this period at the beginning of this ehre the eighteen thirties. If you wanted to open a bank, typically you had to go to your state legislature and get special approval. Basically, they had to pass a special law that would let you open your bank and this was problematic because I was super corrupt essentially. Bank and print money. Then you're gonNA bribe whoever you have to. Say all the knee. All due respect to get them to let you open your bank. Right. So around eighteen forty, a little earlier, this new idea became popular. The new idea was called free banking. And the idea of free banking was anybody who is willing to follow a few basic rules could. Take and start printing money and literally start printing money and you know not surprisingly a lot of people wanted to print money. This is how we get eight thousand different kinds of money. Yes. How do you know if the bill that someone's handing you is real money or if it's literally just a piece of paper from the First Bank of Stacey Vanik Smith which might be real money. I wouldn't. Maybe. Add bribed senator so I love this so there arose in response to this problem these special periodicals Magazines that were privately published called banknote reporters. And what they were was these lists in tiny font of every kind of money. So I actually have a reproduction here another prop from a page. This one was called. Thomson's Bank note. Reporter. K.. So the people who subscribe to this merchants people who need to accept money. So so let's just say I'm running a bar and I got my thompsons bank note reporter and I come in I need a drink who thirsty I'm thirsty. So okay. So the page of the bank note reporter I printed out is for Orange Bank. Okay. Okay. So have that bill right here it is and it's a one dollar bill. So I find Orange Bank here in my Bengal reporter and it says Okay Orange Bank listed different bills and says ones and under wants it describes what the bill is supposed to look like says to horses check. Hey, Cart Jack Blacksmith shop male portrait Jack Girl. Check. So it's at least plausibly real. The reporter also tells me something else that's important and that explains a lot about how many works at this time. Typically would tell me whether I should accept that paper money at full face vowed I can buy my dollar whiskey with this whether you can get your dollar whiskey because remember what we care about is whether I can turn in that paper money for gold or silver, and so if the bank is shaky or even if it's just really far away. You know the reporter might say, just knock five cents off the dollar give Stacey Ninety five cents worth of whiskey instead of a dollar that took a really long time to buy that we ski. It does seem like it would have been absurdly inconvenient right and for a long time when people look back at this period, the basic story of free banking was just that was a horrible idea like that many kinds of money right but. Much, later, like in the nineteen seventies. This generation of economic historians started going back and looking more closely. At the banks and how money works in this period and what they saw when they really went through the numbers was basically like it wasn't that bad Bankston go bus that often people didn't usually lose much money when they used. We're you overall they would lose like a few percent which is. Kind of like what you pay today. So when you take money out of the weird off Brand ATM at. The corner store. which I always do. Yeah, I. Mean. That's basically like the the bartenders giving you ninety cents for your dollar when you do that, right? So. Obviously, we do not have eight thousand different kinds of money now this ended and it ended after the civil war. Yeah was the civil war. So during the civil war, that old American argument of can we have national banks or not came up again and Congress passed a few important banking laws. One of them basically taxed all those thousands of kind of state banknotes out of existence, and then the other one created these new national banks that printed much more reliable, much more uniform paper money. It's interesting because I mean, this was obviously after the civil war was the time when the United States went from like a collection of. To One Country, and it seems like the same thing happened with currency maybe not a coincidence. Your I mean, there is this idea at least in the modern world money is part of what makes a country a country and I think you do see that happening at this moment in the united. States when we go from thousands of kinds of money toward one uniform kind of paper money I'm just sad we lost the cow bills. Because you know Jacob I have a fever and the cure. This story in like a whole bunch of other like believable stories like this are in your new book money. The true story of a made up thing. This episode of the indicator was produced by Nick.

Chromebooks Gain Share of Education Market Despite Shortages
"Four our first story pandemic has been huge for laptops and Google secret profit is winning it all chromebooks because we got, we got a whip out the history books here. We've come a long way with the old laptop computer my first computer ahead to live with my legs because it was a gateway, it was like to metric ton the only computer with a cow theme I think that's what they were going for their and then compaq laptops. I'm pretty sure doubled as a bulletproof like storm shield. Yeah, they were. Very Bruce Wayne, and then you had the dude, you're getting a Dell Guy. It's going to cost three thousand dollars. You better get a mortgage for that del. Ted Day the laptop market has changed in ways that might surprise you out. chromebooks are officially becoming the unofficial laptop of over Nineteen Jack. I noticed that because learning is happening remotely schools have been snatching up just the cheapest laptop option out there for kids and you know chromebooks are coming in at like two hundred fifty on the bottom of this is like a skinny computer with no hard drive it's basically a. Lego, it's a physical reincarnation of a chrome web browser that's about it oh, and if you're curious about getting one there sold out, it's a five-month way. Schools are snatching these up at such a rapid rate in preparation for distant learning that crumbs global market share for computers has climbed to ten percent from eight percent last year, which brought Jack and I do a key question. We found fascinating what Tech Company is. Dominating for laptops right now, this same tech company that was dominating for laptops three years ago Nick Microsoft. If there's a Microsoft makes its own laptops, but it's windows software still powers get this eighty three percent of laptops globally we're not just talking about those surface tablets. We're all seeing commercials for now Dell HP Lenovo, most of them are running on windows just like they were thirty years ago and you like look around a college philosophy class and see a lot of silver rectangle or apple macbooks not the winner smack books have just a tiny market according to the. Just, seven percent of global computers are Max ask because Apple has become the global club for high income people who pay in to get the fancy apple laptop. Attackers for the rest of the world, they're using windows or android or chromebook or something cheaper. So Jack, what's the takeaway for our buddies over at Google operation get kids hooked on our chromebooks, smackers most chromebooks in the world those belong to school at this shocking stat sixty, nine percent of all the computers bought this summer by K., through twelve schools in preparation for remote. Learning were chromebook. That's insane. Sixty nine percent. Koumba. Become like the modern day version of the OLA blue calculators used to have to the library did did you have those two? They're like ti like zero, zero, zero one the most fisted function on these things was all clearing before he could graduate to the eighty-three calculating absolute zero with those calculators. Now, Alphabet the company that owns. Google they benefit as kids start using chrome and Seymour. Google ads are also benefiting though by hooking kids at an early age into the Google ecosystem because if you're google docking in your google driving your google chrome booking since you're a seven, you're gonna live a different lifestyle potential. Yeah. If you've been since your seven, you're more likely to pick an android over an iphone. When you turn seventeen and finally get a phone maybe as early as Caney air by the way.

LeBron James Has Another Block Party Against Rockets
"Breaking news, this morning scale, and it is good news especially if you're a Houston Rockets Fan. Robert Covington had that's scary fall last night where he was pushed by cow cruised into the hip of Anthony Davis. He was bleeding from his mouth. He was down on the court. The good news scall- is he he's not in the concussion protocol obviously I imagine he's a bit sore this morning, but it looks like he'll be ready to for game four tomorrow night. Yeah. I'm actually really looking forward to game four because Houston Rockets do some things well, Russell Westbrook finding his rhythm attacking the basket I. We said this on the mini pod. I think the. Houston Rockets should be a little optimistic about this. If we all understand that if Lebron's plays like this or even Bronco plays like this liquors are going to be tough to be s for anybody that's the that's including the clippers including Miami or Boston or Toronto whoever that is vintage Lebron. The question is, can he sustain that and it's his age that's going to be tough but the Houston Rockets they found some things they got to figure out their defense but offensively, I think they have a magic formula that could beat the Lakers if they make some shots and move the ball better. I think. So as well the Lakers won the game last night behind a classic Lebron James Performance Lebron had thirty six points, seven rebounds, five assists. He also had four blocks Gal and that's the amazing thing to me. It's not that he's big. He's strong. He's smart. We know that you know you WanNa iron people who just blow up Lebron for any little thing he does on what scale to me in your. Seventeen at thirty five years old with as many games as he's played the athleticism that he still has that lobby last night from Alex, Caruso with a one-handed dunks look to me like he was well above the square on that, and then the timing on the chase down walks that is certainly impressive and it's also certainly unique for a guy in his mid thirties who's played as many minutes as Lebron James says. Yeah, and typically. Data old you all the answers you've seen every defense you're not overwhelmed by anything. Your body is sort of started to give out I I'm not. He's not where he was when he was in Miami way back wind there's a lot of miles on that, but he his his ten percent drop off or whatever you WANNA call it fifteen percent drop off is. You you can't see it because the other stuff that he does he still has the great passing game is came lot easier to him now than it did before I think he could conserve his energy a whole lot better than he did back in the day. I, don't think he has to expend as much because he's a lot smarter on the floor and he. Relies on guys like Anthony Davis but I. I'm always impressed when the broncos into like old the Bron- mode. I just I. I kind of sometimes forget that he's able to do that and I know it always happens but I just use the seventeen years in your thirty five years old. You shouldn't be able to recover just one day in between and get out there and have that performance. So once again I think you know using father time as the thing that's most undefeated. Can he be great again in game four Kenny be great. Again in game five I don't know those answers, but whatever he's doing is absolutely working.
AstraZeneca pauses coronavirus vaccine trial, shares slip on rollout doubts
"No Work? No pay no food coronavirus lockdowns have forced many people all over the world to wonder where their next meal's will come from according to Matthew True. Scott Oxfam International's head of Humanitarian Policy About one hundred and twenty one million people have been pushed to the edge of starvation. This year not of course is across the main hotspots you would expect Yemen Democratic Republic of Congo of Gunston Venezuela, south. Sudan we're also seeing hunger coming up in otherwise middle income or developing countries. India South Africa Brazil CETERA. Look at a situation in the world where you have about sixty sixty, one percent working in the informal economy when that denied that daily income forced to stay at home they no longer get that income and that forces them into some of the negative coping strategies and that's what makes this crisis so unique. People. Couldn't travel to work which meant they couldn't make money and they couldn't buy food but this isn't just a short term problem. Is it Yeah and it has sort of long term impacts where, for instance, if you take people who are living day to day selling milk, if they can't sell milk for a few days, it gets point whether then have to do something to have food and income then have to sell their means of income. So selling the cow which had been providing them and then conquered back to generate income and same happens instead of urban areas where people who had been, for instance, taxi drivers after. So long of not being able to take fares and give taxi rights eventually then have to start selling off assets to cope and that's where we're really. Seeing potential long-term structural breakdown, and as you say, this is a problem that existed before the pandemic. So how do we tackle it this time around does it require new solutions? It does with sort of proposing three solutions. The I of course is that we need to increase humanitarian aid drastically the U. N. Global Humanitarian Appeal has called for about ten point, three billion dollars in humanitarian aid. But only about twenty, four percent of that is funded. So less than a quarter, the second thing that we can do is cancelled some of the debt that could free up up to a trillion dollars, and then of course, the final thing is. Exactly, as you say, we do need to change how system works. We need to build a more fair and more robust food system. We need to build a system that's ready to deal with the climate shocks that's able to produce sustainable food. One that supports a small-scale Farmers Informal Workers, Matthew Scott head of humanitarian policy at Oxfam International. Thanks for your time. Thank you so much

Interview With Ta-Nehisi Coates
"Tallahassee welcome back to the podcasts what numbers this? Number seven. I think it might have been six. It's crazy. I can't even remember it used to be when we did a new one I would go back and listen to the old one. To See what we talked about before make sure no repeat myself. I just can't do it anymore. I can't listen to six. An, our audio. Preparation, so I gotta go off my My Memories. Yeah. It's been a lot. It's been a lot I WanNa say I feel very fortunate. I feel honored really that you are willing to have this conversation because I know you recently. Lost Friends Chadwick Bozeman, who is you know the world is experiencing that loss but I know you're experiencing it in a different way. Thank you for taking the time to do this even despite that. Now it's okay I mean we had committed before and. It's an experience to. Meet somebody. And you know I don't want to overstate Khushab was like a really private dude. And I think whenever you have people who are up at a certain level certain currency. That people try to deal in in you know overstating their proximity. So you know this wasn't a cow who I talk to every day or anything. But we did know each other we did it on. You know pretty much in the same circle. You know this guy met. Jesus. Nineteen Ninety seven ninety eight when. The students in the fine arts building decided to. Take, the administration building at how to prevent. Called it the absorbing of the fine arts college into the broader Liberal Arts School Indus- turn basically terrifies into a program as opposed to independent, which was crazy because. So much of what you know how a calling card is turning out autism Donny Hathaway To puffy to Tony Morrison just this long history. So it seemed crazy anyway him you another close friend of mine basically led the takeover and. are coveted for the hilltop for. You know some like at the beginning of my career I've probably been working for David. been mentioned several times. You know in other caucuses we we've done a couple of years at definitely maybe a year two years something like that. But anyway else coming in for the student newspaper and I say all that to say to watch him. On this arc. To see him you know student plays at Howard. He was always such a serious serious office. An intense and probably like the dude, I would least. Be Likely to pick to become. A major Hollywood leading man not because he lacked the talent. But he was so serious I'm. Dead dead dead serious about his art in and you know he really really didn't play and didn't have time. For Shenanigans. So just watches I mean he's one of those. Really really rare case, there's so much in the world it makes people feel like. Taking shortcuts in messing around and And Chad. Rare case that did it on principle and. Basically you know. Hard work you know. I know when people pass folks alight. They say this I never did any wrong or you know, etc. That's not what I'm saying. But I I was privileged to watch his as office. By went back and watched the onstage interview you did with him at the Apollo. And one of one of the things you said there was you sort of started off by saying because it was about Black Panther obviously, and and you said something like I didn't know that I needed this movie until I watched it you know and Kind of wonder how much of that? Connected with him being in that role or just. Yeah. No I mean. I would that was part of it. You know what I mean chat always had like this kind of you know otherworldly About himself. When he got past it's not like I was like, oh, he clearly can't this. You know what I mean is I said it was unexpected. You would be on this rise like this. I. Guess I'm more doubting. The system Hollywood. I think like an by point or somewhere around I point started writing a comic book. So it was like crazy. You know that you know he would be Erin I'll be right in the book and then I just so proud of that. So You know and even at that moment. He agreed to do conversation at the I mean you're talking about you on a billion dollar film. Again I knew. That they were. Promoting film it you know how exhausting? Because I think this was after they had gone on this global tour promote I knew how exhausting that was. After they had done grueling Toyota, he would just sit there and you have to remember what we know now was he was diagnosed about it. Yeah. Yeah. So he's been diagnosed with. You know what I mean and he sits up on stage in. But we had a pre call? His Russia with very very assistant. You know about that. You know we cheat the time limited data and I'm like, okay I'm. Trait. Up there with that, we got on the stage he has so much to say. And you can tell if you look at the interview, he just has so much to say and I think there was some point isn't Chin who has a black me the mask could come the and wants to get. Out At enchanted signs it. You know he was very conscious about what they're meant. And what what their moment met and it is. I just spe is it is hard to be sitting here talking to you about this in the past tense. Yeah. He has so many lighters just enviable qualities that relatively brief moment you know he really was king you couldn't have picked a better person to to carry it.

I it's it's been an amazing if you haven't if this is the first one you're catching go all the way back to the beginning of September October and check it out. It's been just heartwarming. It's been personal stories. We've talked to doctors we talked to professionals helping individuals with their transition process.

Caroline before we get started. What are your personal pronoun preferences? I am she and her I am what is commonly called assistant or I call it assist gender chick. And basically, it's for people who don't know what that means that somebody who's gender identity matches their body. And so I'm I'm as some people would say a lucky person because I haven't had these sorts of issues of turns agenda and transsexualism to deal with in my life. And now there are people that would disagree with that and say that it's an honor to be under person because you get to kind of see so to speak both sides, a male and the female, the the man or the woman in the equation, you one of the look at my show notes here of one of the things that fascinates me. Is that you talk about non pathologising. Yes. And we'll get into that mortem in it. I'm sure, but that's and you have a very holistic approach things using. So you can sell people about hormone treatment psychiatric referrals, surgical guidance as well as other services of I'm sure we'll get into before we get into all that the first thing that we generally kinda like detri- and do is share some definitions in my nickname on the shows. The professor I usually get stuck with a we have a subject matter expert, and I've wondered if you would be willing to share with us the definitions of a few words to familiarize our listeners who may not be worth the definitions. I would love to for example, gender. Well, gender is very generic term. And so what I prefer to call it really because it has to do with identity, but I prefer to call it is gender identity. What had has to do with is how one identifies as a man or woman boy or girl, it is hardwired in my estimation..
"cow" Discussed on Brown Chicken Brown Cow Podcast
"Well, back to the Browns, you can Brown cow show. I am sure he making. We are talking to the vivacious my God that you were. So your answers, Dana Prosser professor. Yes. The next question is to you. Thank you. Yeah, you. So my understanding than as you transitioned while you're working in technology company, is that correct? Yeah. So can you tell us a little bit about how you navigated that with the people at work and have had there? Yeah, one of the good things about working at a big company HR. Their job, they can be your friend your to be your advocate and your friend. And so the first thing I did was reach out to HR and said, when it is and you'd have any, you know, is there anything else I need to know? But this is going to go down right now And so. And it was a cool company very open, a lot of queer folks working there. So there were pretty much real verse, and I was really surprised these told me where the bag was that didn't have, you know, that wasn't gender, so I could feel comfortable because let me tell you even before started transitioning, it'd being Bush stike trying to go to the bathroom start to get really tricky, and this is way before to North Carolina bathroom thing. You know, because a little guy you're standing in line, you know, out of bar to go to the bathroom Clinton's. Has this girl around like sure, you're right line. And it's plenty of times I've brought trial or the my breast approve just indeed as the right line of why would I stand as mine if I wasn't a go to restroom. And this was this before you even begun, you translate? Yeah. Even at at this job, I wouldn't wanna go down into that back in the basement. I wanna go into women's restroom and his plants. Get on the unit wrong Rothe room. So I was like four to make other people. Give no on my comfort. It was other people calling late sure that I use the bathroom that that was down the basement, but at least they told me where it was. There's nothing they can really do about, you know mean you know going to the bathroom, but as it was, it was an annoyance. And I know a lot of noise. So people who blur the gender line, but how they dress and how the here, you know, trying to go to bathroom could be an ordeal. I remember being in a bar Cisco and I was just, you know, it was what I was just done at the San Francisco eagle, and it was the miserable one with the door barely hanging, and that's the door. The rest are all trans guys go to the one two from door gotta go to the bathroom. Gotcha. So it was another guy that was the pain on my do sonar, but I really kinda like stand and guards store from I go to the bathroom -cause trans guys, like really, I'm a guy to do the same. Thing for me. So, but this is like the bathroom drama. And so I'm glad to told me about it. But when I when I came to my bosses, I didn't change my name, but that's like, please just try to at least like knowledge, my gender that I choose to use the pronouns on they do. They're really cool, but it was really cool, but I knew that it would be easier for me to change companies start over. Sure. You know you had to reinvent yourself, do blah, blah. So they started laying off and then I'm like, you know what? This is a great time for me to say goodbye. Went to another company that I was there for like eleven years for they start over. I only came out for certain people, but not everybody new. I was trying to think most people just thought of the gay guy. As it was a trip when I when I brought my my owner to the Christmas party and my fiance, they'd be like your what? Oh, oh, okay. Already would give hurdles like you for a woman. Gay man. No. That was always a trip, but the I only out at myself may lead to women one because they help bring their all girl. And I know it's always had my little spots. I have. I go wondering all these women because, again, Iraq. I was gay guy like, no, you can religious talk about anything..
"cow" Discussed on Brown Chicken Brown Cow Podcast
"Well, the Brown cow show I am Sean monkey McKinney. I'm sitting here with the. Madam I met him. How are you. Enjoying your blushing even although I can only hear it. Well, you're sitting there in that, so it's frightening crop. Really just put that down. I mean, another room. I don't know what you think I'm wearing. It's absolutely nothing at all. The problem. Okay. So now I'm feeling your heat through the law. Fantastic. You're listening to our an episode with Kristen tristen and the whole month on gender identity and gender transition. So let's get tristen. You need the decision to not go through surgical changes to your by. You've been noted to say that you love your body and considered it a blessing. Can you talk to us a bit about your pass to body positively, something we're really out and acceptance as you transitioned, and you know, with maintaining some of those parts that may be considered female. Yeah. I mean, it was a rocky road. I would love to be able to pretend that I like came out as trans and automatically when wave like sometime I just want her writing crop and made me super excited to have a body that's different than like all the dudes around me, but it did not happen that way. I sort of honestly, and it was, you know, it was a journey. It was really hard to identify as a man and to appear to the rest of the world is a woman that was really difficult. I've also I'm also exclusively attracted to men. I've only ever been interested in and romantic and it's with men. So that was confusing to, obviously I did not want to date straight men because they really, you know, wanna be with the woman and I knew on the inside I was not a woman, but then game. Then we're also equally uninterested in being with me because I didn't look like a man. And so I really was stuck in that sort of catch twenty two for a while. And then I transitioned. And then I was in a whole new are a category where I did look like other men and my body parts for different than most men have. And so then I had to navigate a whole new realm of dealing with my body and intimacy. And I have to say, you know, while I did have some challenges, I was pretty constantly surprised by how open and interested, particularly gay men were in something that was new and different. First of all, I mean, like there's so much by his ability and I basically would not have had a romantic life if it weren't for out by men and even closeted by men when it comes to that. Sure. But but gay men as well. I was just really surprised by how many people were like. Oh, cool. Yeah, that's not anything I know anything about would. Would you teach me? And I'm like, yes, yes, that's. That's great. It's actually a little different. From a, I have several friends who are trans men and interested only in men, and I have to say you're was much smoother than many of their as they pack spear, and some violence and very bad reactions from gay men who are. Visibly upset by the parts not matching what they were expecting. Yeah, really early on how to survive. So this is like the days of a lot of like internet dating eventually apps. And so I was very, very clear way before I ever met someone face to face, hey, here's what's going on with me. And that way, if they were interested, they could duck out and I wouldn't have to deal with that rejection face to face. So I was never in in an in case where I had to tell someone's face to face by the way I'm trans ever. I mean, like I came out as trans, probably the year that boys don't cry came out. So that idea of violence being a reality was something that I had sort of baked into my DNA as part of the coming out process. I also, I think learned how to sort of market myself as fans guys super early on what words to use so that people like you can't use jargon even if you say transgender man, a lot of gay men are going to assume that you're trend..

Now, tristen is thirty. Five was assigned female birth, and by his late teens, he, he knew he was transgender and had to be, you know, and he transitioned to mail around. What about fifteen years ago in is early twenties. In about eight years ago, he met biff again and they in love and later married and adopted two children. We're going to explore some really interesting things about Tristan and and Tristan's life and find out how tristen is managing Chuck children and all these things, but we're gonna get into some of those also. Excellent. But what else you want to say there. Madam was going to say, if you're interested interesting story and a lot of divert about there's a show called the accidental parents which will get into later next month during their parenting month. Tristan's also gonna be with us again, talking about his journey, parenting, and his thoughts on raising his own kids because he has a whole barnyard full of zone children under state. And before we started view tristen actually had to lock himself in garage to to sequester. And so for the from the kids, he said that they're amazing getting into places that you never want them to mosques. Seeing them go through the attic doing that whole mission, impossible to get Danny. Makes the curious as to what barnyard animals children are, but you know, that's not keep talking about Tristan what's bring him on with him. Talk about himself. All right, Christon. Welcome to the show. Hey, thank you so much for having me. Absolutely. We're excited to have you we, we know a little bit about you, but before we get started, this is one thing that we always like to ask our guests. Can you tell us your gender pronoun preferences? Sure. I use he and his band has and I'm going to start off the questions here. So as I mentioned or topic, this is gender identity and transitions and a four here more about you. Can you tell us what your gender identity is today? Sure. I am a transgender man. Wonderful. Can you explain to people who may or may not be aware of what that means? What that means? Yeah, Sali's. So as you alluded to in the introduction, I was assigned female at birth, which is a fancy or modern way of saying, I was born girl. We don't say that anymore, but if people have really not delved into the world of gender, people, transgender issues that's like a just a super basic way of explaining it. I had a normal girlhood. I guess I have two sisters. I have parents who are actually just hit their fifty s wedding anniversary. So they are straight people still gather. And you know, I had a pretty liberated childhood in general. My mom is a feminist I wasn't sort of forced to wear any particular kind of closer pick up any particular kind of hobbies. So why didn't really feel a huge sense of gender. For ya until pretty much teen years and sort of as puberty progressed. And and my body started to change, I felt more and more uncomfortable with it. And in fact, when I was in high school, I started to do feeder and that is when I, I was exposed to really gay culture and gay people. And the joke for a long time when I was in high school like, oh, you know, I'm a gay man and woman potty and for years. That's right..

"Or Jason? Horrible. My memory. Now I have the most difficult question of all good you may or may not have heard that we consider ourselves to be the sexiest Barnard on the internet. Also the most inclusive and as with pointed out to maybe other day the only or nerd on the internet, but that's okay. We're willing. I know barnyard well, you know, Brown and Brown cow that started the show, and then we're that come from honestly way back. When you know when you heard Bill porn, it was Brown Brown cow, and we're sex body gender, positive show. And I will never say that again, I promise y'all. Anyhow, that's where the branch in the brow cow came from and they sorta became mascots and we realized early on that people are more comfortable describing themselves animal. Then as a person. Times, and they'll express vulnerability and sort of a, it's sort of great equalizer. So all of our team here start saying, well, I'm really this. I'm really this. And so we started asking everybody else and we have a crazy weird barnyard we ever traditional, you know, chickens and cows and dogs, and cats and things like that. But we also have badgers and shape Shifter's and dragons, and unicorns mermaids and pigs, and all these other things. We're very inclusive. Yeah, it's good. So what animal would you be in our barnyard and why? Oh, oh, that's a great question. I go. Because probably probably because I'm stubborn and I like to climb on things. I'd be obnoxious goat the climbing to the top of shit. Listen jumping in the trees. Do we have to worry about you chewing on people's pockets and things? Oh, probably just g I figured I'd ask. Yeah. 'cause you know, go to a Torius for everything. Goats are not really very good about consensus act. They're really terrible it consent. They don't give a flip what you think he's going to do what they do. Well, there's a certain irony of our oil consent perks of being a goat. I don't know. That's wonderful. All right. Do you any final thoughts or take away messages you like our listeners to hear today and take home with them? Yeah. Start to notice the difference between what you want and what you're okay with. That's awesome. Thank you so much for being a guest with us today that he, it's been wonderful. And I know people will be reached out and looking at your site and looking a little bit more there..

So it's something where you sign up for classes at a certain time online, or do you know download materials or go through a module? Yeah, it's all self study, which is great and we're gonna create. So this first phase of study. So yeah, what I love to is that you can take one horse to see if you like it. We've priced it to make it really reasonable for people to be able to access it. And then if you like, what you see in one you can then take the whole bundle and still get the bundle discount for all five of the competency courses. So that part, I really liked about it and then it's for anybody who wants to do their work, and then the professionals can just they pay a little bit extra and get their continuing education hours. So we're really trying to make the people and you can do it anytime anywhere you can stop and start. Yeah, it's great. That sounds great. Sit. Tell tell us a little more we mentioned earlier that you have a new. Class called queer bodies, applying the body positive model to the LGBTQ plus community.
