The History of Spanish Africa

"I say that there are parts of spain and africa. I'm not trying to be tricky and play with words. I'm not saying that. Spain used to have colonies in africa. Although that's true. I'm also not trying to define the canary islands. Which are part of spain off the coast of africa as being in africa. I mean in the most literal sense possible. That part of spain is in africa. There are two very small spanish cities located on the peninsula which are on the african mainland ordering morocco and malia and their very existence as you probably would expect are due to historical quirks happenstance due to geography. Spain has always had a close relationship with africa finishes based in carthage in. What is today. Tunisia established settlements on the spanish coast. The roman province of hispania was part of a greater empire that included all of north africa. Which bordered the mediterranean after the roman empire fell islamic moors from north africa conquered and controlled spain for over seven hundred years. So there's always been a back and forth between north africa in the peninsula and malia both spanish territories in africa have different yet similar histories despite being about one hundred and thirty miles apart from each other. Sita is located directly across the sea from gibraltar. So if you ever want stump someone asks them. What country lies. Directly south of gibraltar and what country lies. North of gibraltar. answer is the same. Spain is on both ends. Sierra makes the counterpart to gibraltar for the pillars of hercules which the ancient names of the two promontories which guarded the strait of gibraltar. As with most everything in the region it has an ancient history. Carthage martina and numidians all control the area. Before the romans the you me add caliphate controlled it for centuries when the caliphate of cordoba fell in ten thirty one it was then passed between various north african kingdoms with support from various kingdoms in the iberian peninsula.

The Birthplace of Saint Augustine

"World of augustine encircled the mediterranean sea spain and portugal. To the west france switzerland and the british isles to the north greece turkey israel to the north and to the east. Of course italy extending right into the sea the boot poised to kick a soccer ball also known as sicily and stretching all along the south egypt in the coast of africa. Agusan is from africa. Now that's the modern designation as are all of those country names. I just listed for you and the three hundred and four hundred. This was all rome. All of these peoples were roman or were to be considered roman and all of these places were part of the far flung roman empire augusta was born specifically in what was called new media the roman province of namibia. It is modern day algeria. His hometown was aghast. It was originally a village of nomadic. Berbers and back in the two hundred and one hundred species does the punic. Wars rome took control of this vast area as guston was born. Rome reached its zenith as augusta and lived roman declined and as guston died. Rome fell well. The gas was two thousand feet above sea level. It was surrounded by mountains that were another thousand feet or so and it was a very fertile plain. In fact the most fertile land in north africa it was a great place to settle and farm. Corn olives were mostly harvested and had a great economy one. A story noted how it became a retirement destination spot for roman soldiers. Did you ever wonder where the lions and bears and tigers in the roman amphitheatres came from. Will they were caught in the mountains and in the plains around agustin's hometown of the gas one hundred and seventy miles away to the east was the massive city of carthage. It was bustling with people and trade. It was second city only to rome and sixty miles or so to the northwest hippo regis. That city would come to play a significant role in the life of augustine. Near the end. Agustin's father was patricia. S a roman pagan. His mother was monica and devout and sometimes mystical christian much much more on her later as our book unfolds. Augustine had siblings. But we know very little about them he had at least one brother navigate. Send at least one sister and he likely had more brothers and sisters. But we just don't know that much about them at all. He was born on november thirteen. Three fifty four. This was a full generation of post. Constantine rome one. After constantine's conversion did you see the air quotes there. i put around network. that's important. This was the christian era at the end of the roman empire of course alongside of christianity. Plato's philosophy and the schools that followed him ruled the roost. That's important. It was a time of doctrinal advance. Augusta lived right in between the nineteen creed three twenty five and the cow sedonia creed of 451 that's important. He also lived during the time of heresies. They were springing up all over the place. Will that too is important if you were to ask a young augusta playing in the streets of the gassed. What do you want to do when you grow up.

On the Origin of English

"So here is the basic story. The idea is that germanic goes back to some original language. We call it proto germanic. We can't know what it speakers would've called it. There was this original language that became german and english and swedish et cetera and that would have been spoken probably in that little neck of denmark or maybe a little southwards of that in. Let's say about five hundred bc. So that's where proto germanic would have started in the meantime there's a thesis that that language was profoundly impacted by invading or at least imposing people from the near east people from way down where there is today lebanon and syria and israel specifically it would be the phoenicians. The phoenicians were one of many people in that region and they would have spoken a semitic language. I e a language related to what we know today as hebrew and arabic and if we wanna go. Further afield aramaic and cross the red sea. And it's i'm hurric- in ethiopia. But they spoke of semitic language and we know what they spoke because they wrote it down because they actually were the first people who grabbed the alphabet when it was very quietly and scrap invented probably by mercenary soldiers in egypt. The finishes took it and made into something that they use. Basically to write down business related things they want writing epochs. They weren't writing the grapes of wrath. But they were writing and so the phoenicians are the ones who end up spreading the alphabet throughout the world. In any case more to the point the phoenicians were big travelers. they did not like to stay home. The phoenicians started ruling the roost. They were probably in about eleven hundred bc and they didn't just stay there they sailed. They traded they got themselves around what was then considered by people like them the world throughout the mediterranean they keep on going westward and of course once you get out to where there's no more land while you might start going up into like spain and they kind of around the coast they traded. They brought things back. They were great intermediaries now in the middle east. They had their cities like like tire and blows or carthage. That you hear so much about on the north coast of africa that is phoenician or punic territory but they sailed and you know there is evidence that they sailed not only to roughly spain and portugal. Which is what we have absolutely concrete evidence for them doing but as evidence that they kept going and they went all the way up to northern europe and past. What's now germany. And they actually would have gone all the way to that part of denmark. One little piece of evidence is that they got people. Amber got some amber in greece. If you've got some amber and what is today lebanon. While the amber as often as not from up in that baltic northern european region they had a lot of amber amber is pretty. I think amber is preserving bits of dinosaur tales and insects and things like that but also just gorgeous you kind of want to bite it. Big amber trade. Well they always seem to have it. We'll have they get it. Well it would seem that. They had some sort of connection to northern europe. That in itself doesn't mean that they sailed all the way up there and got it because there were ways of trading amber just a cross the european continent but the fact that they had so much amber is one of a great many things. It's like the spokes in a wheel. An argument is about various things that all seem to point in the same direction. What about that amber. But more to the point it's about the language what is wrong with manic. Why is it so odd. Well what is this case that these people came from the near east and sailed all the way up around your understand. What the thesis is. The idea is that speakers of phoenician settled in somewhere in this part of denmark and there was long-term settlement where speakers of this phoenician and speakers of this thing we called proto germanic mixed to the point that many people were basically speaking proto germanic in phoenician to an extent this is what we linguists call language contact theory. The idea being that proto germanic ended up being really stamped by this other way of being a language because there would have been these settlements where venetians ruled the roost and their language seemed to be the cool one and it was the one that people switch to so the proto germanic ended up being profoundly affected it kind of wanted to be cool and became more like venetian. What's the evidence that that happened given that. There is no archaeological evidence. Partly because what would have been the shore back then has since become underwater. So we can't really dig up wear. The settlements probably would have been well. One of the things is words. So as i said so many words in germanic languages don't trace back. They just pop up all of a sudden it's about one in three and that's a conservative estimate. Now some of the experts. Just don't give a damn about that. And they have other things to do. They have bigger fish to fry in that as perfectly understandable. Sometimes you just don't give a damn you know what i don't care about. For example i do not care about outer space. I remember when there was the apollo landing and everybody was so excited and they actually rolled in a little black and white. Tv into my classroom. We were supposed to watch. I didn't care. I'm more interested in what's going on here astrophysics. I respect it. But i do not care about saturn

"This is wonderful because we've actually had some requests Yes for this this topic and neither of us have been able to bring ourselves. Haven't been have mustered up enough courage. I can I can do the pronunciations justice. Oh, see now that's bullshit. Tell. You land. Will probably bad. So don't worry. Yeah that didn't Stop Hannah. As I have never done a Roman episode either I don't know why I'm up here on my high horse but anyway. Thank you for this I'm so excited. Please Hannah we get away. All right well, the Roman empire was the Post Republican period of ancient Rome the generally accepted dates of the Roman Empire from twenty seven BC to four, seventy, six, eighty although I'll talk about some of the differing opinions about the exact dates. Later, I WANNA start off by laying some of the groundwork of how room operated before we get into the Roman Empire itself. This city and Kingdom of Rome was mythological founded around seven hundred and fifty BC with seven fifty three BC being the most commonly accepted date. It was founded by Romulus the city's namesake and his brother Ramos who are nursed by she will after being abandoned on the banks of the river. Tiber. ROMULUS ended up killing his brother during a dispute over which the seven hills to build the new city on and became the first. King of Rome who? Start. Yeah, just you know as you do murder brother side, you want to build your city on late normal things normal Italian things I would say. Yeah. That's. That's true. So. The Roman Kingdom was the earliest period in Roman history when seven kings ruled before it became a republic. So in five Oh nine BC, the monarchy was overthrown and the Roman Republic was established the majority of the former king's functions were passed onto two men named consuls who are elected to term of one year and could be prosecuted after council ships ended if abuse those powers Ooh I like that. Yeah. That's a little. GonNa Balance. Right there. Yeah exactly and under the Republic Room also began the practice of assigning dictators basically, if things got. So Harry that they're like now we can't risk multiple dudes working to solve this problem. Just let one guy decide everything. So elegant stunned, they could choose a person to be a dictator for six months for six months. That's Max dictator I think you know yeah, I like. It was their choice and also if whatever the dictator was chosen to carry out, usually it was war like somebody or something I if that finished earlier than the six months period, the dictator was actually expected to them be like, okay, that's it. I'm done and dislike resigned their dictatorship. Okay, that's also something that the Italians are really good about is giving power. and. They were actually fairly common until the end of the second punic war, which is the one with Hannibal and the elephants and actually did work pretty well late the Roman republic was basically constantly at war during this time since it went from essentially being a city sitting on a bunch of hills to being invaded by gulls then they took over the entire Italian peninsula and they defeated Carthage over the course of the three punic worse than they conquered all of modern bakeries and finally they had three different slave revolts with the last one being the one with Spartacus said everyone who's about and. So obviously that much war and that much rapid expansion meant there is like unrest in the air and it opened the door to a lot of military leaders to make their mark in the world, which is where we're gonNA start our main story about the empire. Julius. Caesar was never an emperor of Rome and died under the Roman Republic and not the Roman Empire that you cannot start talking about the Roman Empire without first talking about my boy JC.

"We're very pleased to be bringing this reading in honor of seat since day on September sixteenth. SCIPION was a third century bishop of Carthage born to a wealthy Pagan family. He initially rose to prominence as an orator after a youth spent in dissipation CIPRIAN converted and was baptized at around thirty five years old. His bishop became so impressed with him that only a year later he was made a deacon and then priest. A year after that when that same bishop died, CIPRIAN was chosen to succeed him. As Bishop Supreme would shepherd the Church in Carthage through many storms including persecution, a- pandemic and schism. His letter to donatus however comes before all that it is in fact, the earliest of Cyprian's treatises written very shortly after his conversion. It he writes to his friend do not use who is also a recent Christian initiate. Supreme describes elements of his own conversion including details about the miserable state which has sins had reduced him. CIPRIAN rights with characteristic eloquence and power and I must say letter to the Nazis has got to be one of my favorite writings from among the church. Fathers. That's in part because this letter so typifies the enduring relevance found throughout the writings of the fathers. CYPRIAN's systemmatic enumeration. For example of the prevailing moral ruin across institutions of Pagan Roman society reads much like an accusation of our own modern Western degeneracy even with criticisms of such things as the gladiatorial games, it's difficult not to recognize the cross applicable to certain contemporary analogs. I'm thinking in that case in particular of the colossal pornography. Industry. Still. With other criticisms, no analog needs to be found. It would seem the more things change the more they stay the same. Who Sad to say that by CIPRIAN, report little has changed for the theater since Cyprian's time. As an actor myself I note that with particular regret. But it's not all bad. CIPRIAN concludes his letter with a rousing exhortation to Christian life and book ends the letter with rhetorical flourishes that are themselves. Delightful. Listen for yourself and I'm sure you'll agree the letter to the Nazis remains as compelling today as it was in two, forty, six.

Although his political position at home was Secure it was not absolute and so his absence might lead to his political enemies taking the chance to Stage a coup. And it hosts him.

However, he instead slipped out that very night with most of his army and the population of Gala leaving the battle dead unburied a group of two thousand lightly armed troops stayed behind with orders to keep liquid large campfires in order to dupe the carthaginians into thinking of the Greeks were still in the city the next morning.

Augustines Teenage Coauthor

"In three eighty, nine Augustine Co wrote a book called it the teacher. The title comes from a Text Matthew Chapter Twenty three verse. Ten. which reads for you have one instructor or one teacher. Christ. Augusta and said, this book discusses and inquires and discovers that there is no teacher who teaches men knowledge accept God. As, written in the Gospel and he quotes Matthew Chapter Twenty, three ten of course that is very significant the title of the Book and where it came from it's also significant that this book was written in three eighty nine. It was just three years after Agustin's conversion you remember his story, he leaves Hippo there north. Africa goes up to Rome goes to Milan is literally running away from God like Jona or the Prodigal son. But God catches him. In fact, God has been directing him and directing every step of his path straight to him and in three eighty, six in. Milan. He was converted and three, eighty eight he leaves Rome, and heads back to Carthage, and then onto the gassed and hippo in North Africa, and there he will serve for the rest of his life as bishop. But this is in three, eighty nine. It is early in his Christian time. So the title is significant the date is significant but what is really significant is that Augusta had a CO author for this book and this was not just any CO author. It was a teenager sixteen year old came along to help Augusta and write this book. And was not does any sixteen year old? It was his son at data's the teacher is a dialogue, a dialogue between father and son the father. Augusta and the Sun Addio data's his son's name literally means a gift from God dot to means Gift Day Oh of course God and awe is the preposition that means from. He too was converted right at the same time Augustine was, and they were also baptized by Ambrose there in Milan and audio Dada was baptized as he was turning fifteen he went with his father back to Carthage, and then in three eighty nine, they wrote this book together in the confessions. This is what Augusta says of it. There is a book of mine called the teacher which consists of a dialogue between Avocados and myself, and now Augustine who in the confessions rights most directly to God, and so he says, you know addressing God let all the ideas expressed by the second speaker in the discussion his. Although he was only sixteen when it took place and I learned for myself that he had many other talents, even more remarkable than this, his intelligence left me spellbound and who but you who but you? Could work such wonders is so here's a guston singing. The praises of his son at your data, and as they wrote this book together well in the Book Augusta. Talks about how we use words to communicate words are symbols, their signs, they signify things. Patio donnas comes to realize that words put us on the alert they make us ready to learn. But ultimately, the words we used to learn ultimately all that is sourced in God in Christ is our teacher well, then conclusion Augustine says this to no end to love him and his to know and to love God is the blessed life which all proclaimed that they are seeking but few have the joy of really finding that is to say all want the good life but only few find it. And that was Agustin's hope for his son Avocados. Well, sad to say that a year after this book, his son at Yoda's died in Augusta who was very sorrowful from this could at least take comfort in the fact that his son died in Christ and so a Guston was confident. His son Bodice was with God.

The City of Carthage

"Welcome back to another episode. Five minutes in Church history on this episode. We're going to a place to a very famous city in the ancient world. The city of Carthage Carthage was first settled by the Phoenicians. This of course was a crucial city right as were on the Mediterranean Sea. Carthage came to be known as the master of the Mediterranean. Sea Trade after the Phoenicians was part of the PUNIC. PUNIC empire, and then under Caesar Augustus who reigned from fourteen BC to twenty seven ad. Of course, this is the Caesar Augustus of the Gospel Narratives in the birth of Christ under Caesar Augustus Rome to control of Carthage and it became a great Roman city. It was second only to Rome and the Roman Empire Rivaling Alexandria from time to time for that position, but most give it to Carthage. At any given time in these centuries, the population of Carthage would be two hundred fifty thousand people that had all the telltale signs of a Roman city. There were theaters in the republic buildings. There were the extensive baths. There were aqueducts for. Water across the city, and even into the fields for farming, there was an extensive Roman road system. Soldiers were kept. There was a very busy port city and a very prosperous city. It also has quite a role in church history. It was the home of Talionis. Of course. Is that great church father from one sixty to two twenty as the one who gave us the word Trinity, and brought together all that biblical teaching of who got is in his Trinitaria and being, and so we have the word trinity coined at Carthage and two Oh. Three Carthage was the site of the martyrdom of perpetual and Felisa toss those very brave young women, and the wonderful story of their martyrdom in their courage in their stand for Christ. Well, it was at Carthage. and. The to fifty CIPRIAN was bishop of Carthage. This was on the heels of the decian persecution very intense persecution by the Roman emperor Shas. And after the persecution, and there was some relenting of it, folks were allowed back into the church created quite a controversy was known as the Donna test controversy that raged throughout the church from the fourth to sixth centuries and a key player in that controversy was CIPRIAN Bishop of Carthage. In three ninety seven. It was the site of the Third Council of Carthage. And the topic of discussion was the New Testament Canon and coming out of that council was an affirmation of the twenty seven books of the New Testament, so it played a role in the Canon controversies in development of the Early Church and in four sixteen, the Palais jeans were condemned at Carthage, so it played a role in the development of the doctrine of original sin. So what a fascinating city with rich history both in terms of the ancient world end in church history well as Rome was sacked by the barbarians in four ten carthage was sacked by the vandals and four, Twenty Nine Carthage became the capital of the vandal empire which spanned across that great north. Coast, and of course that North African coast had the Mediterranean Sea to the north, and the vast Sahara desert to the south. Is Long came on the scene, the six hundreds, and began to threaten from the East and Right at the end of the six hundred at the battle of Carthage Carthage fell to Islam. It was dominated by Islamic control. There was a brief time during the Crusades when Carthage was retaken, but only for a short time. It remained Muslim throughout the era of the reformation and right onto the present day. Carthage in the present day is a suburb of Tunis. Capital city of the North African nation of Tunisia. Tunisia's the first government North Africa to give protection for religious freedom. But the nation itself is still dominated by Islam and while there is a church. They're going way back to those early centuries. It is still a church that suffers persecution in our present day.

"The equivalent number of deaths. Today would be two point five billion worldwide. By this time, CIPRIAN was back in the city. Having concluded that his presence there was necessary. The plague of the year to fifty is one of the momentous events in Roman history, it weakened the empire, which was already suffering from barbarian incursions and even catastrophic climate change. The temperatures had been unusually low for several years running, and this had led to disappointing harvests and widespread famine. You'd think that these new crises would turn the authorities attention away from the persecution of Christians, but they didn't. They only made matters worse. In fact, the Romans blamed the plague on the Christian stubborn refusal to offer sacrifice. This they said is how the Gods were taking. Taking their vengeance, CIPRIAN address those charges directly in his correspondence with the civil authorities, but argument wasn't Ciprian only response to the plague. Everyone else might despair, but the Christians actually did something useful. The city of Carthage UC had no organized way of dealing with that pandemics. There was no board of sanitation to clean up the open sewers or ask people to practice social distancing. There were no city employees tasked with burying the bodies that were piled up in the streets in the summer heat. In the face of a disastrous epidemic, the only response, the establishment could think of was to try to propitiate the gods killing some Christians might make the gods happy, but taking care of the sick was out of the question. Christians reacted very differently. CIPRIAN exhorted his congregation, saying there is nothing remarkable and cherishing merely our own people with the do attentions of love, but that one might become perfect. We should do something more than he than men or Publicans. We should overcome evil with good and practice a merciful kindness like that of God, we should love our enemies as well. Thus, the good should be done to all men, not merely to the household of faith. So, he was informing Christian doctors that they had a duty to treat not only their co religionists, but also their pagan persecutors, they had a religious duty to serve even their neighbors who were most unneighborly. The Christian response was well organized. The church had already built up a system of institutional charity like nothing. The Pagan World had ever seen. Now faced with an unprecedented emergency the church put it social network into action to serve Christians and Pagans, alike the modern medical historian William McNeill offers an interesting perspective on the effect of this Christian activism. He says one advantage Christians had over their pagan contemporaries. was that care of the sick? Even in time of pestilence was for them a recognized religious duty when all normal services breakdown quite alimentary nursing will greatly reduce mortality, simple provision.

"He had known well in his secular life. Now he was pleading with them to be reasonable and practice clemency as they judged Christians. WHO WISH THEM NO HARM? But in the city and countryside matters grew worse, a plague out in Africa, and soon it spread outward to the known world. Historians debate the viral cause of the pandemic in two fifty it may have been a novel influenza virus or hemorrhagic fever at its peak, the plague claimed thousands of lives every day in the densely populated cities, it quickly reduced the population of the known world by a third, the equivalent number of deaths.

"In January of the year to fifty, the Emperor Day issued an edict requiring everyone in the empire to offer sacrifice to the Roman gods. Each sacrificed would be witnessed by a magistrate who would then register the act on a certificate. The certificate could be carried about and produced on demand like proof that you had paid your taxes or got your car inspected. To CIPRIAN sorrow, a great many Christians rushed to the temples to offer their sacrifice and avoid the penalties and harassment. Others were dragged to the altars on willingly, but failed to withstand the work of the torturers they caved under pressure, and gave worship to the gods. Still others bought forge certificates on the black market, so they could avoid making sacrifice, but also avoid the consequences of breaking the law. The Pagan. Mob seized the occasion to settle scores with their Christian neighbors. They denounced people publicly and dragged them forcibly before the magistrate, but there was one Christian, the mob wanted more than any others that was CIPRIAN as leader of the church, not held a symbolic position in the community by texting out CIPRIAN, the mob would decapitate and humiliate the church. They would also give comeuppance to a prominent man who was paid quite recently, and whose conversion they still felt as a stinging insult. As. They cried for Cipriani's blood. They swept up any Christians. Who might stand in their way? Keen to protect his flock. CIPRIAN slipped out of the city and took refuge in a nearby hiding place. The priests who had opposed his ordination sauce, CIPRIAN flight as an act of cowardice, but remaining in Carthage he would have placed the lives of others endanger, and he would have been severely restricted in his ministry anyway from his hiding place, however, he was able to accomplish much more writing many letters to individuals and instructions to his clergy and his people. He received reports reports of chaos within the church. Some Christians who had offered sacrifice immediately regretted their sin, and sought readmission to the sacraments within the church. There were some who believed that such centers should not be absolved until their death bed, there were also clergy, however who were willing to offer them easy reconciliation, so apostates started shopping around for the priests who would give them the best deal. And so in the midst of persecution, the church became bitterly divided between rigorous tes and laxest. There were also reports of strange liturgical abuses in the churches. Some priests who were teetotalers were celebrating the mass without the chalice of wine. That's not valid. Throughout his year of hiding, Ciprian managed these multiple crises by means of letters and much of his literary legacy comes from this period, for example, his treatise on the reconciliation of lapsed Christians produced during this time is a very important text in the history of the sacrament of penance. In it, he charts the course that the wider church would adopt as its own rejecting laxity on one side by demanding Penance, but rejecting rigorous on the other side, and clearing away for sinners to come home. During this time, Ciprian also composed the earliest known document dedicated entirely to the holy. Eucharist, it is deeply biblical drawing from both the old and new testaments, and at explicatives, the Legiti, a sacrifice that is implicit in the Gospel accounts and Christian practice. His correspondence also includes treatises and letters addressed to civil authorities in Carthage Man..

We don't move like that at all but anyway you get the idea dance fever but did you know that there's an actual dance fever that got people sick from between the fourteenth and seventeenth centuries. It's called dancing. Mania and there are several reported cases of it throughout history. What happens is that one person starts dancing somewhere out in public no music and then one by one other people start joining them in the street. You get kind of called the original flash mob accept. These dances were completely unreversed and they went on for days weeks and even months at a time by all accounts the dancers appeared totally powerless to stop many literally danced until they dropped. Ed One famous case a woman in Strasbourg. France began dancing in the street for hours on end and within a week thirty people had joined her. The one month later there were over two hundred people dancing nonstop in the city centre town officials try different strategies to cure the dancing mania and even brought in musicians and professional dancers to perform alongside the mob. Hoping that they simply needed to dance it out not so in fact. The music only made more people join in. Historians have long struggled to explain the cause of dancing mania. Some theories include religious fervor poisoning Tarantula stress and a curse sent down from Saint Vitus. The patron saint of Dancers. None have been proven definitively. None Time Nice work. Lisa thank you thank you brandon. What did you think of? That story LIES HUNG IN CHURCHES BELIEVABLE. But it may be believable because some things that are crazy are trail interesting to let. I am telling the truth than I am trustworthy. Well before we go accusing Deborah of being a liar. Let's at least hear her story. I yeah my true story. Shayla Brandon listen up carefully. Deborah your timer will begin. Halloween is many people's favourite holiday. And for good reason. Free Candy silly costumes and let's face it. You don't really do anything in school that day. Some of US wish every day could be Halloween well in Carthage Missouri in Nineteen Ninety. Four One. Ten year old kid. Try to make it so that year for Halloween for niece lyles dressed as traffic on Aka the Yellow Ranger from the TV. Show mighty morphin power rangers who in November? I rolled around and Oliver classmates returned to school in their regular clothes. Bernice came still dressed as a power ranger when her teachers told her to change. She pointed to a clause in the school handbook. That said that students could wear whatever they liked as long as it didn't display bad words or anti-establishment propaganda on her walk home from school. She figured people would still have some leftover treats so Bernice wet trick or treating for a second time. I got more candy in one hour. Then she'd gotten the entire night before inspired by for example. Five classmates wore their Halloween costumes to school the next day and much to the dismay of school administrators twenty-seven more kids did so the next week as Bernice campaign dubbed the Halloween Forever Movement gained national attention for TV news program. Sixty minutes came to carthage to interview. The kids refused to take off their costumes. What Costume Bernice shot back at the interviewer? I really am a power ranger. You're the one who's in a costume boring reporter guide here. Having Pizza Candy in early December Carthage Middle School changed. Its official rules to ban costumes except on October. Thirty FIRST AT EACH YEAR. Bernice now has a plaque dedicated to her in the National Halloween Museum in Washington. Dc hand time. Good Work Deborah. Yes thank you Brandon Shale. What did you think of that story? Would you want to join the Halloween forever movement? Probably NOT YEAH. Because some like costumes can be uncuffed knowing I Dressed as link from Russell wild cool and the pants were so short. Cut off the circulation of my feet out. So you don't think you'd WanNa wear that to school for a whole month. No okay. It is decision time now. Our contestants must decide who story has mass appeal.

"Like to welcome the show. Carthage Ir who is currently from Boston but has come to talk to us about Namibia. Kartik welcome to the show. Thank you Chris. Good to be here there. You pitch me a region of Namibia. We haven't talked about in the two episodes that we have done on this South African country. Where are we going to talk about today? The region of Namibia that I am Kim to talk about today is a place called so so so so sleigh is essentially said a marshes. That's located in the southern part of the KNOB alip desert and it's basically a large salt and Klee Pan So it's nearer the Arab desert abbots into the Kalahari and it's one of the many of blaze which actually means marsh not valley along with deadly in hidden lay in the desert excellent. And why should someone go to the the media. That's a great question limit. BIA is one of the largest countries in the world which you might not realize if you just look at the map specifically when you really think about it brings to mind if you've ever seen the pictures of large massive orange tunes that are standing up Pecans Aski- Infinite Sea of sand dunes that are stretching out onto infancy with beautiful night sky. And what have you. That's exactly what's a sleigh. Is Interestingly enough. The area of this whole Soleil. South Penn is thirty two thousand square kilometers. So that's a giant sand sea and to say that it's isolated does not even begin to cover it excellent. I couldn't you enjoy this episode just for background for people my son used to edit this show when we did the very first show Namibia. He was the editor he was the editor while he was listen college and then a little bit afterwards and at the time he had said he was gonNA stop traveling with us. He'd seen enough cathedrals in Europe and wasn't interested in going places awesome. We did the first episode of Namibia. He edited it and send it along with a note that said well that Namibia sounds interesting and it was like who are you. And what have you done with my son. And and we've had that kind of reaction to this country on the show where we've had people who've gone for their honeymoons who have gone and loved it. It is well well up on my list so I'm excited about this. Where are we going to start before we get into all the sand dunes the other fun stuff? I do think that it's helpful to start the city of men who took the capital exactly. That actually includes a church. Your son narrow find interesting when you fly into maybe the first city that you fly into wind hoke it is a very small say but it is also very very cosmopolitan. I mean you. They have very high. End Gyms lots of great restaurants. And what have you and it feels very different from the rest of the country there couple of interesting places that I think everyone should visit the first one is the Independence Memorial Museum which was actually built by

"Back. If such a great idea for tonight. So, you know, our son max. Hideaway just committed to going to Carthage college, which I'm wearing the red didn't take my wife long. Congratulations to our son. Max he'll be starting in the fall at Carthage college for those of you that listen to this show for a long time. It's y'all remember when that kid was born and he's seventeen years old. And he's gonna go studying music theater up at Carthage college. We could not be more excited and proud of our boy the red men in the red ladies Lindsey. That's what they're called. Oh, yeah. They have the red jacket. My wife. They've already seen a bump in sales for all of their outerwear. All of a sudden this box shows up. She goes, oh that didn't take long. I mean, I think he committed on Thursday, maybe Wednesday. Yeah. Wednesday because I was in New York. And so he's he's heading up there in the fall. We're super excited about that. But he's currently in the production of. Robin Hood men in tights at Notre Dame college prep, have you seen that movie down? Oh, yeah. Okay. So he is playing the role of sheriff Nottingham sheriff of rotting ham, rather, he's very funny and. The boys. Do a really good job. It's really funny, and they know there's a lot of funny jokes. But since it Saint Patrick Saint a lot of people are going to be out drinking. I think the show would be even funnier after you had a couple of cocktails. Heke ad. That's so, you know, if you could go out, and you're like, hey, what are we going to seven thirty maybe because he partied all day. And then you want to do something fun. I'm sure there's probably some tickets available at Notre Dame college prep and these boys do a good job. And I'm just saying couple of cocktails then you funny humor. And it's really funny, and they've got a couple of girls that are in it from Regina high school who are quite honestly, they steal the show. They're so good. They're so good. So anyway, congratulations to the jugglers as they're known at Notre Dame college prep, really fine production and their director, Mr. hopper. Does does a nice job with these boys? I can only imagine what it must be like with trying to hurt. All those boys together to get them to pay attention. But they're really a nice group of young men and the women that are in the production are fantastic three one two nine eight one. Seventy two hundred is our phone number. Lou Manfredini here with you housesmarts radio this is Kathy and mckenry. Hi, cathy. You're on WGN. Hi. How can I help you? Problem with the cable, okay table. And usually when they get scratched and dashed and stuff like that. I just clean them off real good. And I us old English polish and all the scratches, of course, disappear. This table belongs to my boss. I cleaned up the one end table, but the big coffee table, he uses pledge I use any oil anything, but oil on my furniture. Know the plight now has gotten into the scratches. I can't get it clean enough for that the old English to absorb what do I do what you need to buy another product that you may have never used called Howard's. Restore a Finnish. I'll injury store and you're gonna go down. Right. So hear me out. It's well, no it is. It is like. It's like you're giving it a facial. So here's what I want you to do. You're going to buy what color is this table. It's not as dark maybe more like a walnut. All right. So they make a walnut colored Howard's restore finish. And you're going to buy some quadruples zero steel wool. K the finer the steel wool they excuse me, more zeros. There are the finer the steel wool, and you're going to put it in a little bowl or a little jar or something like that. You're gonna put the steel wool in there. Like, a sponge, you're going to drench it then you're gonna wring it out. So it's damp and with the grain, you're gonna wipe across that table. And then have a nice clean cotton rag behind it wipe it up. It's gonna look fantastic. Don't bear down on it. Just nice and easy. And if you wanna put the Olding the old English over the top of that you can. Okay. Would cover up all the scratches at around. It look really you may be surprised at how good it looks just with the Howard's. And you may stop right then and there. Don't over think it. Okay. And I'm assuming I can get the city. Yes. Ma'am. Okay. Thank you. You got it. I appreciate your call calling this morning. Let's talk to. Roman who's in Tinley park, high Roman you're on WGN. Good morning. Hey, how you doing? I'm good, sir. What's going on? Got a problem. Back lot seven years ago. It's one of those not real would decks composite yet. It's got the green and everything the problem is it gets hot. What can I put over eight that? Outside rugby. I mean, I mean anything you would have put the anything you put over it. You're gonna you're gonna you don't want to paint it or anything like that. Because then you defeat the whole purpose of having a composite deck, right? There anything. No because it's the dark color. That's absorbing the the heat now. You say hot. Meaning that when you're sitting out on the deck, or if you go out there with your bare feet, if you go out there with your bare feet, thirty seconds. You can't stand down. Right. How 'bout flops? Shoes. I mean, you know, the only your only your only option there. I mean in in the heat of the sun. And what does it have like a southern exposure to it? Yeah. You know, either a series of, you know, patio umbrellas or a retractable awning that would block some of the sun. I would just really hate for you to have spent all that money Roman on that. I'm at really nice composite material. And then, you know. Yeah. Sure. Yeah. You could paint it. But then you're it's that'll be crazy. And there's no clear coating that's gonna that's gonna solve that problem. Because it's the it's the darkness underneath the only way to stop that. So you can walk on it. It would be the painted white or like a light gray or something like that. Miami. And then you're you're defeating the whole purpose. So perhaps it now right now all I do is put an outside dog on it. Right now. Right. And you'd like to avoid doing that. What about you have the ability to do an awning like a retractable awning inside of the house too long? All right above. Door. It's not that. I. Do you have do you have room like at the gutter line where you could clip it on just under the gutter on the facial now it's too little too low to be off the roof. I don't wanna do that. Yeah. Right. I mean, they do have some they do have some these these patio what they call sale tarps that are kind of train Giller in shape, where you depending on the rail system of the home, you can put up three different. Like three different polls on on the on the deck itself. And then it's three different points. You pull it. Nice and tight and it creates this. Nice look to it. It's very different. But it does give you some shading. So basically, just shading, correct? Okay. Sorry about that. Sorry about that. I mean, it's it is a catch twenty two on the darkness of the of the. Decking, material and that heat it does build up, especially if you have that southern exposure Roman. Thanks so much for the phone. Call three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred is our phone number. Lou Manfredini here with you. Let's talk to Bob who's in Maryville high about I was looking at you. And you were looking down and didn't quite know what to do. How can I help you? Well, I got a Adiel out there in the back that I turned into a screened in porch. In the problem is that the concrete just. All the time. Just moisture coming up from the concrete. Concrete slab. And it's a patio. It was a patio. So it's just on the ground. Right. And before you enclosed it it never did this. I don't remember. It's it's one of those things that I think I. Close it right lady before wintertime, and I I asked my wife this morning about it. Okay. Let's do this. Let's do a little test on the outside patio is do you have the ability to go on the side of the patio. Where you enclosed it. Once the ground thaws out to dig a little hole about two feet deep. Okay. I want you to dig a hole like right next to the side of it. And I want you to dig down two feet. And if all of a sudden, you see water two feet, we have a groundwater issue that we need to address. Okay. And and that could that could be something that you may have to do some French drain around the perimeter of to allow the water to go away or do something like that. But if you go down two feet, and you don't see water, okay? I want you to clean everything off in that. Patio, and I want you to use a concrete sealer, but I just talked about cult bone-dry. Okay. Spray that on the gallon of you about seventy bucks. It's not cheap. But it will seal out the moisture, but this is only Bob if we don't find water when we go down there to two feet, okay? This bone-dry only put it on with the spray. You can't brush it on you can roll. You can roll it on. Okay. The other sealers I've had concrete sealers, it just doesn't work. The other day that warm weather we had it just looked like it took a whole out there. So here's what I want you to do if you've already tried sealing it with other stuff, we gotta try and strip that off. Yeah. Problem there. Because most of it is is up. Right. So scrub that all off and get it all off first and then use the bone-dry, and I think you're gonna see a huge difference because it's gonna get absorbed into about the top inch of the concrete, and it's going to seal it out. But again, only why only if you dig that hole, and you don't see water. Okay. All right. All righty. Good luck. Bob. I appreciate your call calling this morning. Housesmarts radio with me. Lou manfredini. We'll be right back. Hey, this is Carl. Hi, this is. Ten minutes. Hey, this is Rick White Sox. Baseball place here. Tomorrow. The white socks.

He and I watched an episode of the original Star Trek which is on net flicks. Which you know, I love that. And then after watching one episode, I was like, actually, I think I watched two episodes of the old Star Trek from the sixties, which is awesome, Mike. Oh, I wanna watch the reboot. And so I watched the reboot of Star Trek. From two thousand nine which is awesome. I could watch it again. Awesome. Great, really fun. Okay. I have a question. Do you have a grandma? I do. I mean, anybody got a grandma d is she is she looking for work. No, no. She might be because my guest is going to try and hire her Wendy Trianon is the senior PR manager with GE appliances. But what I have failed. When I talk to Wendy before. I forgot to tell you that her real title is director of grandma relations, Wendy, welcome to WGN radio. Thanks for having me. Now G E, we know as a company that makes a lot of cool stuff in the arena that I'm in. They make amazing appliances. The GE profile line in particular is one of the one of the sought after brands that a lot of people putting their homes you guys were out at sea ES in Las Vegas. And there's a lot of tech in connected. This and connected that and you're trying a different way to get connected to people. And it's by hiring a grandma can you explain? Right. Well at CS. We actually auditioned about thirty grandma role. We're looking for that grandma that always wants you to lick this stone that doesn't take no for an answer. When when she served next an extra plate of chicken gravy. And he says it's okay to eat the raw cookie dough just a little bit, right? She's not going to tell you to do that. Right. She's not the one that slaps here. He does you go in for you know, we know that grandmas are living life to the fullest. And the stereotypical granny in a rocking chair has changed. Grandmas are living longer, they're ageless. They're going just stories to share some both the kitchen and some careers. And so we're looking to sign that grandma that really exemplifies that that crosses cultural boundaries and celebrate twice in the kitchen and beyond. What's what I know something you want to be clear about is that this isn't a contest. This isn't like a raffle contest you buy a ticket and you could win. You're actually looking at hire. Somebody. Absolutely. It is not a contest. This is a job. We we are truly hiring for the position and looking for a relationship with someone that brings our.
